Kindly, under- standing, and O genuinely inter- ested in the many p r o b l e m s of a school day is Principal Charles A. Everest. He is ever workina to bring more and better student selff government to Union through the service staff, stu- dentfoperated studyhalls, the Student Council, and the Senior Counsellors, Theirs Is an limi: ri- lfwyrr lCt'C1tllY ll:-wys and Principal f't'1Tr'Eii Sparkle, personality, and keen humor well de- scribe Union's Assistant Principal Perschbacher, Her tact has made her many friends among both teach- ers and students, Always graciously endeavoring to bring about a better relationship between teachers and students, she has made a real place for herself at Union Her pixie-like charm is always felt by everyone who comes into contact with her unusual personality. Miss Goebel Mrs Mcraan and Miss Pv-tssch bacher Always ready to help many students with their problems is Mr. Everest. Here he talks over the schedule of classes with Dorothy and Eugene Dewys. Seen conferring with Miss Perschbacher are these two new teachers, Miss Goebel and Mrs, Morgan. They find her prepared to help with any problems that may arise, DJ Mrs Crossman, Personnel Adviser Who knows the most about almost everyone in school? Helen Olson and Mary Felmer, of course! From 8:30 AM. to 3:30 P.M., Union's office girls make out bulletins, answer 'phone calls, keep endless records, and comfort shak- ing students when they must be reprimanded by Principal Everest for being bad, Union's office can well be compared to a busy beehive. 'Mrs. Hunt and Miss Noble, Librarians lf a person were to eavesdrop at Mrs. Crossman's of- fice door, he might hear: "Mrs, Cross- man, these adjunct phrases are ter-riblel Will you help us?" - "Young man, your homeroom teacher tells me that you have not been arriving at school on time for the past two weeks!"-"Oh golly, this four year plan simply won't come out right." These are just a few examples of the innumerable problems with which Union's patient personnel adviser must cope. Some of her unending duties include supervising the Kuder Preference testsg going to junior high, rural, and elementary schoolsg to tell incoming students about life at Union, helping seniors to secure jobs or to choose the right college. They Help Keep Union Moving .it f-i X- 'c,,...,,, Miss Olson and Miss Felmer, School Secretaries All through high school, students see the same old movies on how to wrestle successfully with a library. After absorbing all this knowl- edge, dilemmas still arise and librarians be- come indispensable. Anything from "Claudia" to "Plutarch's Lives" will be placed in a stu- dent's hands, almost as soon as he requests it, by Union's helpful librarians, Miss Noble and Mrs, Hunt. 23 ATKiNSON, MARIOHIF IMRSJ ATWOOD, NELLE BALBACH, BARBARA BARR, FORREST E Se-noqraphy Adviser, Sr. Y- Head of Mathematics Ir.

The idea of a composition class was first conceived by Unions aspiring composers, but not enough students were courageous enough to tackle this awesome class, so, to compromise, the present class was formed, Little known facts about the lives of composers from Bach to Gershwin are discovered at nearly every meeting of the class.

Their ready service of well-balanced meals helps to make the day at Union. The turkey dinners served at Thanksgiving and Christmas topped their list of delicious dishes. Working hard to keep Union in condition for a "heap o' living" are these custodians and engineers, first row, Shank, Botts, VanMalsen, Shaffner, cus- iodiansg and Groover, engineer, second row, Coulter, custodian, Havens, firemang Cornell, head custodiang and Mrs, Batchelder, Matron. Their constant service can be observed in the halls and classrooms Where the floors are kept clean, rooms warm, and the many clocks on time. Most familiar to pupils and teachers are Mrs. Batchelder and Bill Reed, who run the elevator. , 'W 'nw Often seen conferring with each other in the course of a day's work are Ray Groover, engineer, and Ed Cornell, head custodian. The responsibility of keep ing Union running smoothly and on schedule falls on their shoulders. Their ready help, to students who often desperately call on them to unlock those stub- born combinations make them valued "friends indeed". Mr. Cornell is easily distinguished by the large ring of keys he carries, with which he can open any room or cupboard. ssggsggpspss Q X M pesos wise 666 636 Fe the e e cen th t grip the heart, on' when yer fe o e dr ed ye find the school is deorer on 't was, f d FX! ww pfyiifg NVW AW ln! ic MAL: 4 MN W . ,rfffwf F iujfgmgffjg W, MIM? wifi 1. f 'wwf M My M M fx mi 66 Ly Jlfui'liW1' M .- .. .L i' ful, LA, .IX X, Jipwgwfgwfv M n iii?
