Merry ls the Morn
The halls of Union are bleak and desolate
early in the morn, but, as the sunbearns stream
through the windows, bright-eyed students be-
gin to saunter through the school. 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
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

owski, Phyllis Fex, second row: ,Norma Cook,

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

took top place: Susan Dargie, 'lPop" Early, lune

Lure of the Stage
"Theres no business like show busi-
ness," caroled the hearts ot some ninety
Unionites on the evenings ot March 3
and 4, for after weeks of sewing cos-
tumes, painting props, arranging de-
tails, and practicing, seemingly without
end, the night ot the Prollies had ar-
rived. 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"
"'Good things come by the .dozen", says any baker, and these 'tsweetu Junior Frolliettes, Whose lively

lesson on South America with the
hope that by becoming acquaint-

America they may learn how to

South America. Other countries
that play an important part in the

those who sought it.

Senior measure-takers s o rn e -
t'imes needed a step ladder and
at other times they practically had

and bending brought a gradua-
tion night With beautiful uniform-
ity ot costume and shining faces,
Making that high stretch to get the measure-
ments of Dan Sullivan is Ruth Kowalski. Joan
Littell smiles at the funny sight as she records
Ruth's findings while bewildered Dan tries bo
assume an air of unaccustomed dignity.

Then Comes the Dance
Whether it be a waltz or two-
step doesn't seem to make any dif-
ference after a strenuous basket-
ball game, just so that it is some
kind of dance at which to relax
with soft dreamy music. After four
of the six basketball games here.
the junior class sponsored the
after-game dance. Bob Bloom,
Gloria Chicky, Ralph Ludwick,
Sally Wiersma and Bob Hubbell,
and school guest are all gliding
merrily along with nary a care.

Oh, How They whirled
"I think we'll cover this basket
up here," says lim Ludwick, soph-
omore dance chairman, to his co-
workers. Learning the fundamen-
tals of "interior decorating" tor the
Rainbow Whirl are Elaine Berko-
vitch, Betty Vande Vusse, Barbara
Dauksza, and Beverly Haskins.
The Dillingham Gymnasium, in
which the dance took place, was
decorated in "springy" fashion,
with a rainbow arch in the center
ot the floor and a pot o'gold at the
end. The dance was the tirst given
by the Class ot '5U.
Frosh Make Debut
"We Want Our Pictures"
Shrielcs and yells fill the halls
as the underclassmen get a first
look at their pictures. Red-faced
Susie and flusterecl Sonny Sun-
beam bashfully exchange class
pictures, many to be saved in pho-
tograph albums in remembrance
of school clays. Pressing forewarcl
and almost annihilating Aurora
staff salesmen in their eagerness
to obtain their pictures are Robert
Barber, Virginia Grusnis, Norman
Resner, Leona Houser, and Dixie

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. Union was again

the lackson players. 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

as the second team breezed to a tie for second
place in the city standings. 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. Union
trounced Catholic and South twice, and Otta-
wa, Central, Christian, and Creston each once.
High scorer for the season was Charles Chicky.

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.

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.

This is the highest athletic honor awarded annually
to any Unionite. His name also will be engraved on '
