K5-.ig L-721-42 AM 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 nothing on spirited Unionites when it comes to re- I 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 lock. 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. P "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 classes. "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- hour movies. Afternoon Pastimes Climax Busy Day First row: Passatelli, Felcieioni Reed, Schaaphok First row: Heslinga, Pinckney, Second row: Stahr, White, Johnson, Nonernan "The last hour of the day seems the longest," wails many a work-worn student after a long, hard day of activity. Though the seventh graders pictured in the upper right gaze woefully at the clock, hoping that those last 45 minutes will pass ileetly by, they nevertheless have the consoling thought that perhaps one of the many clubs will be sponsoring an after-school sale like that pictured above and will serve delectable goodies that will most likely be swallowed in one satisfactory gulp. For some, the seventh hour is an extremely busy one, Keeping Union's honored War Memorial clean and its plant Well- Wabered is the duty Well-performed each day by Jan Wagenka. and Selling: Gessner, Gold lor it is then that Hliousecleaningn begins. Janitors politely disturb classes by emptying waste baskets, while those on the YVar Memorial committee and others give their objects of exertion a thorough and complete "overhauling." Soon the day is ended and students make their hur- ried way home, only to return again in a few hours for an exciting jaunt to jackson, Muskegon, or perhaps Wfyandotte, on one of the many unforgettable excur- sions that prompts every student who graduates rem- iniscently to sigh, "I'll never forget!"

"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, La Brenz, Proctor, Morlock, Timmerman, Smith, Belke, Janes, Simpson, Orcutt.

These dramatic artists of "I Re- member Mama" are, left to right: Hoffman, Joustra, Merritt, Slanger, Sagryn, Veldman, Smith, DeBoer. 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 leading roles. "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 achievements. These artful actresses in "Letters to Lucerne" are, left to right: Veldman, Shore, Phiscator, Hoiman, Wilkins. 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.

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.

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." 34 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 Award. 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.

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. staff members waiting to be assigned their duties are from left to 66 l They Set a Standard for Citizenship The Service Staff, increasing every year till it has more than ninety members, again 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 done by service staff members. This is Marshall Johnson, at the main door, determining whether Richard Fe1icioni's "out" permit is in order. Making sure that hall guards are at their posts and finding usubs' right: first row, Seven, Duiven, WL-avi-rg second row, Moore, Bennett for those vacant is the task of these attractive service staff checkers.

Second row: Peterson, Gigowski, Hankinson, Williams, Lapinski, Jennings, Tweddal, Weber, Haan. Third rnw: Dance planning is not the only function of the Stu- dent Council. They hear the problems of the school, discuss them, refer their solution to the ofhce for ap- proval. The Student Council is the largest all-school organi- zation. Representatives are elected from homerooms by popular vote, according to the enrollment, and hold Herpolsheimer, Wilson, Mueller, Fillmer, McDivitt, Idema, Kovats, Janes, Mull, Bour. a meeting once a week for half an hour. During the past year the Student Council was re- sponsible for getting the halls rid for a while of those teachers on hall duty during noon-hours. They worked diligently with the Inter-High Council, in which Union has three members, to put on parties and other social gatherings. Halted on the stairway between classes, Bill Slanger, president, Dorace Moore, sec- retary-treasurerg and Leonard Caminer, vice-president of the Student Council, quickly exchange ideas on seething prob- lems. Officers are elected in an all-school election in the spring of the year preceeding their term of ofhce. Councils Help Keep Activities Rolling 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. The club treasury is kept alive by sponsoring after- school sales and presenting a successful dance during the Yuletide season. Mr. Lowell Palmer fills the capac- ity of club adviser.

'Playing in a certain number of innings or quarters entitles an athlete to a major "U," and a major "U" makes the boy possessing it eligible for the Varsity Club. Especially during the last two years has the Varsity Club enforced the rule that no girls should be allowed to wear varsity sweaters. They are proud of this ruling and its success. All those "oh's" and "ah's" you hear down the hall from the girls are just another way of knowing that a boy has received his "U" and has a new bright red sweater to display it on. Mr. Palmer, able track coach, is the club's adviser and together, he and the boys, planned the Annual Turkey Trot, the dance which took place after the South-Union game Thanksgiving day. Another thing that the members looked forward to was the annual picnic at the close of the last semester of school, which has usually been held at Townsend Park. This picnic was called in order that the new members might have some welcome and bid a fare- well to the members leaving the club.

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. The Union High band performs an 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 in the State Festival.

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. 1 1 1 I I 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.

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 November 15, tying one with rugged Catholic Central 0-0 on October 5g and were edged by Central 26-20 on November 1 in a thriller at Ninth Street Field. With the totals, three wins, one tie, and one loss, Coach ii . A Chamberlain's charges ended up tied for second place in the city standings with the Hilltoppers of Central. Mr. Lendy Davis, sports editor of the Grand Rapids Press, named a mythical all-city reserve team and placed six Union second team players on the first string. Albert Simmons, Morris Vlilson, Edward Ear- hart, joseph Potyraj, Winston Boehm, and Jerry Rin- velt are these outstanding boys and future "stars" of the first team.

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- tawa. "We haven't any hard-luck story." states "Doc" El- On his twentieth anniversary of coaching basketball here at Union, "Doc" Ellingson looks forward to another season with second-team coach, the amiable Mr. Henry. lingson, "This team played many close games and al- though outscored and pressed by other interests that could have bothered their frame of mind, they out- fought other teams right up to the final gun." Bumping into Creston, the Red Hawks regained footing and swamped the Polar Bears 33-24 and 43-21, thus ending up in fifth place with a four win and eight loss record. The Red and White cagers fought to the finals in the Furniture City Invitational Tournament by claw- ing Belding 47-27 and Catholic 41-33. Grand Haven finally won the tournament 35-20.

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.

The high scores for the season were Ed Bates and Glenn Stuart. This team was one of the youngest Mr. Henry ever coached.

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 defensive men. Don Wierenga Q95 and Cliff McKelvey QIOQ were two boys who didn't see much action but when called upon the always made it tough for other teams. In a frenzied moment at South High School, Larry Stuart, Union guard, steals the ball from Fred Esslair, South basketeer. Waiting to back Larry up is Rod Conklin 110, but it is all in vain, South winning 38-25. 89 Getting off a good serve is Emil Mor- lock with Herb Zeitter waiting in case of a return.

At Valley, Christian encountered the Hawk's "Murderer's Catholic Central at Valley Field to a 1-0 win in a pitching duel between Jack Virkstis and Russell of the Cougars. Union had four hits while Catholic had two. This winning of ball games kept on until the Red Hawks took the City Championship on May 23, by Virkstis, defeating Central 6-0.

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.
