One by one athletes gather at the table near homeroom 225 and laughingly relate gay escapades of the night before. Blomeling, l-louseman, Doornbos, Taylor, Boh, Pindar, Alkema, and Mclielvy ex- change angles on sports and class activities until the bell summons them to study. "Are you goin' to see 'The Frollies'?" "What time is the game?" i'See her swishing skirt and petticoatl" Susie and Sonny Sunbeam prick up their ears for tidbits of noisy chatter by Union- ites at their lockers. Books are lost and discov- ered again, and intimate secrets are exchanged while locker doors clatter and slam shut. Catch- ing up on the latest news are Phyllis Fex, Gerry Davidowski, Bill Eldred, and Dick Czurak. There is a din of conversation in the halls and then the tardy bell rings. Late arrivers scurry to their homerooms and Union's halls become silent for a fifteen-minute homeroom period. Absences are excused, roll taken, and the in- formative bulletin is read to students who are hastily completing homework or quietly discus- sing school topics. ln homeroom l42 Erma Hansen reads the news-filled bulletin. "l-lere is a dime for a bag of popcorn." "l need pencils and paperl" 'l Do you have change for a dollar?" Alice Van Portfleet, Leonard Caminer, Beverly Koolman, 'lerry Cur- tice, and Phyllis Van Setters zestfully sell Union- ites vital school supplies and tempting mid-day snacks. Patience, salesmanship, and cheerful- ness are traits which the busy beavers in the school store show in order to keep customers coming back. Jil. NN f Happy ls the Day Singing along the highways of school life are Unions own quartet, thesBrigadeers, who are becoming famous throughout the West Side, by performing at a variety of clubs. The silver toned first tenor is Ken Brown, the melody carrier, Roger Bauer, Dick Webber's clean tones uphold the baritone spot, while Buss Christopher supplies the bass. A With a mad dash, famished "brainsters" rush with open mouths to the after-school Snack sales. "How much?" "Two, please," chant the crowds. Eagerly' waiting to be served, a lus- cious doughnut, Chocolate e'clair, or Dixie cup areyleft to right: Dorothy Blum, Gerry David- owski, Phyllis Fex, second row: ,Norma Cook, Elaine Vander Hoff, and Bill Eldred. A . The much' anticipated ll:3U has arrivedl Eagerly consuming home-packed lunches are students of room l29. Between munches, gossip and school life are merrily discussed. Sports rate tops in the conversation duet to the fact that Don Van Allsburg, Willard Watson, Bernard Zoet, along with Donna Van Daalen, Pat lous- trchgnd Marilyn'Zeeff, reside in room l29. September"l9 was a warm day, and'glad were theythat held tickets for the Traverse City excursion. With joy, hope, and anticipation the eager students boarded the train, excited over the football game that was to follow.,Tired and exhausted from swaying and staggering are' left to right: Nita Wimmer, Sally Wiersma, Sheila Kampschulte, Pat Laban, andiylfrances Millhoupt. T lmpressed by the "new look', many G.U.C. girls paraded their quaint hair-dos for the judges in ot hair style show innovated this year by Mrs. Black. Bright smiles and graceful car- riages set off the various styles. Left to right are the judges and the girls whose hair-dos took top place: Susan Dargie, 'lPop" Early, lune Lapinski, Barbara Dauksza, Lorraine Dozniak, and Mr. Freeman. Gladly They Serve Trying to account for that elusive "lost nickel" after the turmoil of a busy noon of figuring bills and counting change are Donna Mackey, Donna Girschle, Beverly Finstrom, Gloria Chicky, and Shirley Strobridge, student cashiers. Cooks supreme, Mrs. Minnie Owen, Mrs. Nona Apel, and Mrs. Lavina Dauser, Union's cafeteria Workers, take pride in the many customers Who en- thusiastically eat their appetizingly pre- pared dishes, Mrs. Rose Schauer, cafe- teria director, estimates that three tons of food have been consumed this year by hungry Unionites and teachers. Susie and Sonny Sunbeam would find it difficult to brighten the halls of Union and the lives of other Unionites if lohn MacGiela, Russell Eggleson, Will Reed, Iohn Schaaphok, Steve Mik- luski, C. D. Blum, Everett Ormsby, and Peter Godfrey, alble custodians, and if Martha Batchelder, helpful janitress, did not give their services. Fashions of 48 ,mwfpw-vzcf ! 4 v 4 X Q?

The difficult preparations, plus the thrill ot hearing the resounding hand claps of the appreciative audi- ences, helped them to realize the real meaning behind the theatrical code, 'The show must go onl" QW I ie, 1. 41,4 mc "'Good things come by the .dozen", says any baker, and these 'tsweetu Junior Frolliettes, Whose lively dancing feet prove the entertainment value of "young uns", number exactly twelve, Costumed in polka dots and ruftles, they are, left to right: Edsinga, Irwin, Chirgwin, Irwin, Heslinga, Coleman, Spratling, Pease, Harmsen, Lindberry, Stenkcn, and Petrovitch. x g so t , xg . 1 X ZW ' , 3, N-. 2 2 i t ff ,W , Pointing dainty toes and smiling merrily, the be-ruffled Frol- ing from pictured, Joustra, Ver Howe, Vander Werff, Gigowski, Iicttcs of '48 begzuilingly tapped their ways into the hearts of Berry, Joustra, Koolman, Van Daalen, and Wilder, The Frollics enthusiastic Frollies-goers.

A broken stage banister, a modest profit in the treasury, and happy, but Weary smiles on the faces of cast mem- bers and stage hands Were the results ot the senior play, "George Washington Slept Here." Numerous titters, giggles, and guffaws were provided by the creditable performances of the seven- teen grease-painted actors and actres- ses. Dettly manipulating curtains, ably controlling lights, and magically chang- ing scenes, the back stage Workers did their necessary bits toward making the play a success. l Checking Otto Sommer's outfit is Helen Sachs, while Roger Bauer waits his turn. Ken Vande Kopple produces sound effects, while Roger Versluis operates the lights. 13 Dances an unbeam as they hear the first an- I'lO 4 - :J of a coming dance.

However, as grammar is also very important, Susie and Sonny are duly instructed in the various parts ot speech. Learning both how to spell and speak correctly will prove a great asset to them when they are older. The class also reads some ot the Works of famous authors, tor example, LongtelloW's Evangeline.

In the recent years following World War ll mankind has stepped up its mental and physi- cal pace. Young minds run at a feverish speed. In order that their pent-up emotions and energy be turned into good channels, a guidance pro- gram has been instituted in public schools, under the name of the Pupil Personnel Depart- ment. Director of the department at Union High is Mr. Emery Freeman. He is always on hand to counsel a perplexed student. A definite Eva Mooney, Maxine Pelvin, Marjory Keeler, Ceil Rosloniec and Lorraine Peltola watch and listen atbentively as Mr. C. A. Moyer gives the history of chain stores. Mr. Moyer is one of the speakers on a vocational guidance program sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. plan has been given Mr. Freeman to aid him in directing young people. The pictured 8-2 pupils are taking the SRA Primary Mental Abiliities Test. The results of this test will be used after individual confer- ences to plan the four-year high-school pro- gram. At a later point in the semester all 9-2 and ll-2 pupils took the Kuder Preference test. The results of this test are used for vocational guid- ance. "Heigh-o, the dairy-0, the farmer in the dell."

The Council has been active in re- vising "Our Guide", which explains the extra- curricular system for Susie and Sonny Sun- beams as they enter the big school. To im- prove conditions in assemblies the council was responsible for having ushers. They also straighten out all school problems lacing stu- dents.

Hawks Prove Name Opening the 1947 season, September 19, with a bang, Union's Red Hawks traveled to Tra- verse City. Exhibiting football playing to the best of their ability, they emerged triumphant with a score of 38-13. Again donning their trav- eling clothes on September 26, the Red Hawk eleven journeyed to Muskegon Heights where they were defeated 20-7 by the previous year's state champions. ln the first game in city league competition, Union was deadlocked by Catholic 19-19 and in the second game recorded another tie with Ottawa 6-6.

With the third in city corn- petition, the Union eleven received a 19-O trouncing from the Hilltop troop, but came back the following week to spank Creston 31-O. On November 14 Union played host to Wyandotte who thanked them by beating the Red and White 19-O. In the traditional Turkey Day tus- sle with the defending champions, Union, fav- ored to win, was upset on a snowy, frozen field, 7-0. Their skill almost sent freshman star Eugene Lekenta over for a touchdown in this tangle which ended up 6-6.

After a poor start of four straight losses, the Reserves got on the winning trail in the South game, 27-26, and from then on were never again beaten.

H H Nine Shines on Bases Baseball held more than its share of the spring sports spotlight, for the veteran-studded Red Hawk nine really lived up to its name in the city title chase. The sparkplug of the team was Iohn Heeren, hefty first baseman, a four letter man. At the half-way mark, Union stood at the top of the heap in city standings with a six won and no lost record, four of the victories being shutouts. History was written in the Central game when Bob Virkstis, elongated southpaw, pitched a perfect no-hit, no-run game. No opposing runner reached base. lt was an experience not soon to be forgotten. ln succeeding games, Union beat Ottawa for the second time, 7-3. Christian, however, proved to be more than a match for the Hawk nine as they ad- ministered an 8-2 shellacking for Union's first defeat of the season.

The busiest trackman in the camp was co-captain Ralph Ludwick, who ran the century and 220 yard dashes, anchored the relay team, and also competed in the high jump. ln addition to Ralph, the letter- men were Ed Timmerman, high and low hurdler, and Ray Phillips, who ran the low hurdles, broad jump, and a leg in the relay. The other co-captain was Dick Pindar, halt-miler and consistant winner. The most exciting meet ot the season was the Ottawa meet, un- decided until the final event, the relay, which Union won, earning a 62112-621f2 tie. Last year the tracksters won one meet and lost tour in city dual competition, and, 'in the regionals, were entrenched in sixth place.
