With Fun At Morn The Day is Born
Mc Diarmid, Lazoski, Noneman, Buzalski, and Rin-
gleberg, as do several other happy Unionites, enter the
portals of their treasured school in gay anticipation
of the hours to follow.
The hearty lumberjacks in the north woods have

Attentive Unionites listen with interest to home
room leader Forrest Peterson, as he dutifully reads the
bulletin of announcements in the daily program
freshing diversions from routine in the form of varied
recreation. Here is proof of the pleasing highlights in
their daily activities.
Often spirited pep assemblies or colorful
lectures offer a haven of escape from the class-
rooms. Reflector girls, garbed in the famous
Red-Hawk football uniform, frolic before the
student body in a Reflector sales assembly.
Bells ring and the once vacant halls be-
come a mob of hustling youngters as Wil-
liams and Van Malsen wait while Sommers
and Sanders search frantically for their Eng-
lish books and Phillips struggles with her
Noon Recreation Lures Gay Unionites
Putting on their most pleasant smiles, Haight, Van Oss, Niel-
son, and Caminer wait in dread anticipation for the ll:30 bell
which will send a mob of grabbing youngsters charging for the
school store to re lenish their needs.
"Let me see-the cake looks so good, but there -" Blanton
finds selecting delicacies from the day's menu difiicult because
she is confronted by such an appealing assortment of calories.
The cafeteria is a popular spot at lunchtime.
"Batter Up." Panzer, backed by Strain, bears a con-
fident smirk as he Waits menacingly for the windup.
More active Unionites find fast ball games are just the
thing to set the blood circulating again after morning
"Here's a quarter. Give me two-no, no-two."
"Hey, you gave me the wrong change." The frantic
ticket seller struggles through this rain of commands as
impatient students flounder for tickets to the noon-

"One, two, three, step," were the rhythmic words
of Arlene Berry as she skillfully instructed this year's
junior and senior Frolliettes. Assisting her were the
energetic Esther Gigowski and Rita Nielson.
Heading theevening of laughter were Gordon VVol-
ters and Jack Roh, well-qualified M.C.'s.
Spasms of laughter from the audience testified to the
humorous appeal of these beauteous boys who came
forth in grass skirts to present a hilarious impersona-
tion of Hawaiian dancers.
Adding to the gaiety of the event was the skit, "Bath-
ing Beautiesf' ravishingly portrayed by Mr. Early and
Mr. Reynders of the faculty.
Bob Mc Divitt and Elaine Antvelink directed 'AThe
Frollies" under the sponsorship of the Community
Council and Senior Class.
With television as the theme, The "Frollies of '49"
went successfully through its twelfth successive year.
These exotic Hawaiian dancers are, left to right: Eldred, Van Gilst, Wegenka, Czurak,

For the first time in many years, Union High School
presented on March 17-18 an all-school play entitled,
"Letters to Lucerne," one of the year's greatest school
productions. Phyllis Nyberg, Jack Roh, Elaine Hoff-
man, Violet Phiscator, and Delores Wilkins played the
"I Remember Mama" was the title of this year's
senior play, a most difficult stage drama.
In the role of Mama, Evelyn Merritt sincerely
touched the hearts of a sympathetic audience, while
Uncle Chris, Eddie Stabingus, and Papa, Bill Slanger,
cleverly added the humorous touch.
A play is much more than just a cast as was realized
by the stage crews who had the job of building scenery,
securing costumes and making props.
As the curtain came down on two sparkling plays,
the year '49 will long be remembered for its dramatic

The Beat of Soft Dreamy Music Plus
"Oh, we'll take very good care of them," say De-
nomie and Kalawart, as Belke, Versluis and Ver Howe,
lured on by the sweet melodies coming from the band
in the gym, leave their coats to join the starry-eyed
couples dancing to the theme of the Sweetheart Swirl.
This dance was sponsored by the Senior Class.
"Isn't is romantic?" Mc Kelvey, Williams, Morlock,
and Peterson dance dreamily to the soft music of the
Snow Flake Flutter sponsored by the Athletic Council.
This affair was typical of the several dances and after-
school activities which brightened up the year of school
grind for all fun-loving Unionites.
"Dancing is a strenuous exercise!" Those words
were spoken by Walsma, as he handed his money over
to the eager salesman Carpenter, after ordering the
customary thirst-quenching beverage, the coke. Wait-
ing for their turn are Ashby, R. Heiman, and Y.
Heiman. This dance was the Christmas dance, "The
Jingle Bell Jump," sponsored by the Junior Class.
The king and queen of all the Morons were chosen
at the Horizon Club-sponsored dance, the Morons'
Mingle. This was a hard-times dance and all the stu-
dents came dressed in jeans and sloppy shirts. Those
who were attired in the most outlandish fashion were
awarded prizes. The lucky winners of the grand title
were Mc Gillicuddy and Bricher. I

shop. Some of the things his classes turn out are
cookie cutters and copper bowls.
"What shall I do with this piece ?"
This familiar question is often heard
in machine shop as MR. CHARLES
RAVER teaches classes to make a
wrench or some other tool.
"Be sure all equipment is left in
your desks when'you go" is just a
small reminder given by good-na-
tured MR. DEE REYNOLDS, me-
chanical and architectural drawing
teacher at Union.
Teaching Jewell and Kaiserlain to
know the operation of the machines
and to understand the various parts,
pleasant MR. CHARLES RAVER
is able to clear up many a perplex-
Besides being the second team football coach, busy
MR. ROY CHAMBERLAIN, also teaches wondering
students the know-how in regard to the use of electri-
Quiet but eliicient MR. GEORGE GUY is always ready
to lend a helping hand to the student who is in doubt
as to just how to run the printing press.
Faculty Share Fun, Frolic, and Sports
A friendly greeting and smile is always on thc
lips ol' pleasant and much-liked "Pop" liarly as he
takes on the job as ticket taker at all oi' the basket-
At the end of a busy day Mr. Palmer and Mr.
Galant may be seen as they are here, at a school
sale buying goodies lor their alter school snack.
Among the students at one of the many after
game dances are these favorite teachers and chap-
erons, Mrs. lVisse dancing with Jack Virkstis, and
Miss Young, dancing with Floyd Koopmans.
Do you know them? If you don't,
these beautiful belles of the beach are
none other than 'iPop" Reynders and
"Pop" Early doing their comical dance.
in a clever scene for the '49 "Frollies."
Their act was a great hit.

Many Tale Tellers of Year 1949 Are
1 ' '
A Oh: how welcome these senior class meetings are! Besides bringing with them the privilege of I
' knocking off" a few minutes from one's first hour class, these meetings provide the only time the senior
class meets as a whole to settle those important issues.
The long awaited year has finally arrived.
Yes, now the members of the Class of '49
, are seniors! Every senior Unionite finds
1 himself carrying more responsibility than
r before. Committees begin to function. The
year rolls smoothly along enriched by "The
Frollies," HI Remember Mama," Homecom-
ing, the class excursion, and finally gradua-
tion. Providing financial security for the
yearbook staff was an added project of this
year's senior class.
All these projects have been carried on
under the watchful eye of Tom Simpson,
president, Emil Morlock, vice president:
Nancy Haadsma, secretaryg Edward Tim-
nlerman, treasurerg and the genial class ad-
viser, Mr. Floyd "Pop" Early.
Morlock, vice president 3 Tixnmerman, treasurer: Early, adviser:
Haadsma, secretary: and Simpson, president, pause a moment to
discuss the coming senior dance, "The Sweetheart Swirl."
Qutstanciing Members of Senior Class
Taking a minute out from their hours of study and
activity are Bill Slanger and Norma Kalawart, this
year's Dillingham cup winners. To win the cup the
recipients must have a high scholarship record, leader-
ship, service, and good citizenship.
Those seniors showing specialized ability are Eleanor
Schols, John Van Yvestenberg, chemistry and physics,
Dan Kovats, Keck Creative Arts Award for ability in
musical compositiong David Gleason, for mechanical
abilityg Dorace Moore, D. A. R. Award for citizenship,
and Dorothy Peterson, Marion L. Jennings Language
Leading the senior class in the brain department are
the top fifteen in scholarship with ratings of 93.8 or
above. These bright seniors will verify the statement
that hard work is rewarding.

By Accepting School Responsibilities
Here is Susanne Mervenne trying patiently to keep order
in a study hall while helping one little girl with her
problems. To insure perfect control and order, the study
hall teachers select their operators carefully.
This is where Unionites do their study-
ing. Orders are, "No noise to distract these
busy students." They slave away at their
nearly endless assignments which the teach-
ers daily heap upon them. At Union stu-
dents operate the study halls, leaving the
teachers free to take care of their papers
and class preparations. Incidentally the
students themselves learn self-government
for living in a democracy.
"We'll send Bob Hughes into study hall 142 today because the opera- right: Nancy Haadsma, Ray Janes, Jacqueline Gingrich, Clifford Mc
tor is absent," says Mary Bennett as the period gets underway. Other Kelvey, Mary Bennett, and Bob Hughes.

The Service Staff, increasing every year

proved a valuable asset to the school.
Chosen for their scholarship, dependability,
and willingness to accept responsibility,
they help lift the burden of management
from the already over-worked teachers. In
showing others the necessity of observing
law and order, they themselves develop
executive ability and self-control.
Checking hall and out permits is unly part of the work

The Athletic Council gives commendable service to
Union by advertising and prompting sports. Among
its duties are posting notices about forthcoming games
and keeping school spirit up through pep assemblies.

team's morale and school spirit. The antics of
Smith, Nyberg, and Purchase preceding the Red
Hawk band during football games and parades are
enjoyed by all. It takes much practice and ability
to swirl a baton as these comely majorettes do.

admirable task in arousing school
spirit with inspiring pep songs and
sparkling melodies dedicated to their
Alma Mater. Their tireless zeal in
backing Union at the football games
is always welcome. Mr. Theodore
Fryfogle's relentless teaching and di-
recting also create a top-notch band,
capable of meeting any competition

Union Higlflalces State Championship
The Union High State Football Champions,
starting off the 1948 season, traveled to Traverse
City where they crushed the Trojans 45-14 in an
easy win on September 17. The Union assault con-
tinued September 25 when the Red Hawk eleven
rolled over a strong Muskegon Heights 28-7, the
team that later won the South-iNest Conference.
The Union High tornado ripped into Catholic
Central on October 2, downing the Cougars 31-0,
scoring in every quarter. Ottawa went down under
the tide the following week 35-6.
At jackson on October 15, the Red and White
trimmed the Vikings 20-7 when Allan Manne Qlj,
big all-city halfback, gained the name "Mr, Depend-
able" by scoring all 20 points. Jack Virkstis f2j all-
city end, aided the cause with his deadly blocking.
On October 30 the state's number one grid team
romped over Central 33-14. Dale VanderLaan
proved himself all-city and all-state calibre at his
well-known tackle spot. Emil MorlockQ4j all-city
center, used his height and agility on pass intercep-
tions and strong line-backing. Adrian Stehouwer
155, all-city second team tackle, showed other grid
teams what the right side of the Red Hawk line was
made of, and little Jan l'Vegenka Q6j, all-city second
team right half, did all right, both in his left-handed
passing and speedy reverses.
Co-captain Ed Timmerman fleftj, all-city and all-state full-
back, will long be remembered with Al Marine as "a Terror
Twin." Ed was high scorer for the Red Hawks. Along with
Ed, Co-captain Dick Jennings will linger in the minds of football
fans. One of the hardest hitting boys in high school football,
Dick was a "natural" all-city guard,
The "big 3" of the 1948 football season: Coaches Sukup,
Henry, and Chamberlain. These are the ones who got
this championship team going.
Scoring Over All Cpponents 320-54
On November 5' the Union steamroller racked up
a tremendous score of 62 points to Creston's 0. Nine
players contributed to the year's biggest score. Wyan-
dotte, playing host to the Red Hawks, fell next under
the onslaught 21-6.
Climaxing the great season on Thanksgiving Day,
the Union eleven threw the book at South High School
to the tune of 45-0, and came home with the Little Red
Jug. Rod Conklin UQ, all-city second team quarter-
back, many times opened the holes for scoring along
with "Little Dynamite" Howdy VanGilst 185. Fred
Doornbos QQQ and Gene Lekenta QIOQ were the big guns
in the South game with their punting, passing, and
running. Merle Czuhai fllj right half and Roger
Ganzvoort Ql2j end were all-city in their own right.
Merle ran 96 yards to score in the Wyandotte game.
Pass-snatcher Ted Proctor U35 all-city second team,
stood out in the end position and big Russ Clark C145
plugged a good tackle spot.
In the Ottawa game, Jan Wegenka scored easily When guard Fred Doornbos goes into the backiield, something always
with a barrage of blockers in front of him. Left happens. Here in the South game with Gene Lekenta running inter-
to right: Conklin, Stehower, and Wegenka. ference, Fred ran 26 yards from punt formation to set up one of the
Scrappy Hawk Reserves Show F ight!
The Union High School second football team fared
well in the '48 season although they didn't add up
to their "big brothers" in style. The junior Hawks
won three games by thrashing Creston 14-6 on Novem-
ber 8g Ottawa 21-6 on October llg and South 14-7 on

Hawks Display Basketball Prowess
The 1948-49 basketball season was started in fine
style by the rangy Red Hawks. Coach Ellingson's
quintet journeyed to Jackson, December 3, and hast-
ened to Hastings, December 4, trouncing both teams
34-25 and 44-39, respectively. At home on December
10, the Red and White took Central, 32-31.
After this speedy, winning start, the Union five lost
two tough ones to Christian, 26-24 and 41-40. The
second Central game was ill-fated also, the Hawks
losing, 37-36. Later, the Union cagers split two with
Catholic Central, lost two to South and two to Ot-

could have bothered their frame of mind, they out-

Bumping into Creston, the Red Hawks regained

Young Dribblers Shine
The Union Red Hawks' second team ended the
season with 4 wins and 8 losses. At the beginning of
the season the team was somewhat green. Through
the season the team showed steady improvement and
with constant practice, under the guidance of Coach
Henry, and the desire to win, they finally showed their
worth in the last 4 games of the season. They won 3

to knock them out of first place. The high scores for
the season were Ed Bates and Glenn Stuart. This team
was one of the youngest Mr. Henry ever coached.
Small, fast, and rugged will clearly describe tl1e
Union High freshmen team coached by Milo Sukup.
On an average these players were smaller than their
opponents but their high spirits and the urge to win
brought them through the season undefeated. In the
championship game they were defeated by Ottawa

scorers for the team.
First row: Gingrich, Cudney, Piccard, and Reed.
Second row: Bailey, Haadsma, Hansen, and Mikita,

Larry Stuarttlj was the tip-in artist of the team
and ran second high in team scoring. Conrad Peter-
son Q25 was, on the average, smaller than his oppo-
nents, but his speed and determination made him a
better than average player. Rod Conklin and Ted
Proctor Gly were the co-captains who piloted the team.
Rod was hrst in team scoring and all-city guard. Ted,
who was third high scorer, held the center spot and
had a very efficient hook shot. Emil Morlock Q55 and
Bill Slanger Qtij were the tall boys of the team, both
being able to play either center or forward. "Aggres-
sive" well describes both Dale VanderLaan UQ and
George BoonstraQ8j who were rugged and excellent

Hawks Take to Links
As soon as weather permitted, Coach Milo Sukup had his
golf team on the links. Starting off with "par excellence
matches, the Red Hawk golfers blanked the linksmen of Chris-

Larry and Glen Stuart, Ed Stormzand, and Paul Bour.

Thinciads Breeze Through '49 Season
As the track season wears on, the Union High School
team fields one of the best bunch of track athletes in
quite a while. After winning the first two meets, Union
has already cinched one of the top ranks in the city
standings at this season. In a blinding torrent of rain
on the night of April 14, the Hawks ran the Polar
Bears of Creston right into the mud of Houseman
Field 85-24, taking every first place but the medley
race. In the second meet April 22, the cinder-pounders
of South pressed the Red Hawks all the way. Near the
end, any race could have meant the meet, but the de-
pendable thinclads of Union came through 62 to 46,
under the direction of their new coach, Mr. Palmer.
