p r o b l e m s of a

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
Miss Goebel Mrs Mcraan and Miss Pv-tssch

many students with their
problems is Mr. Everest.
Here he talks over the

Dorothy and Eugene
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,
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.

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

How? Why? When?
Music Lovers where? and BY
Whom? are a few of
the questions about
music hashed over
in each meeting of the newly born music appre-
ciation class. 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.

Flower arrangementsl Yes, that is one of the many
topics taken up by Miss Williams' Art Appreciation
Class where Minkler, Muth, Iarvis, and Hand arrange
bouquets while Williams points out a weak spot in
one. This new class teaches art knowledge that will
serve in their everyday life.

Pausing for a moment from their busy
morning of making savory dinners for
those often starved "kids" that descend
on the cafeteria when the noon bell
announces that it's time to eat are Mrs
Ossewaarde, Mrs, Chamness, and
Paulene Madura. 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.
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
Mr. Cornell is easily distinguished by the large
ring of keys he carries, with which he can open any
room or cupboard.

Tokens of '53
"Gosh, look at the size of this one?" "Aren't they
swell?" "Gee, what a variety to choose from!" are
only a few gay exclamations that escaped from these
popular juniors, Kareckas, Schroeder, Burnita, and
DuC1os, as they eagerly gaze upon the display ot
gleaming class rings. The new hawk emblem on
the rings has made a hit with many of the iuniors.

ate the cooperation of the Class of '54 in helping to sponsor activities.
The sophomore has long been the "forgotten" student at Union, Special counsellors are pro-
vided for the junior highs, program planning, for the freshmen, and innumerable activities
for the juniors and seniors. However, the Class of '54 has gone a long way toward making
this years "forgotten men" a well-remembered class.

I "Something new has been addedl"VYes, one of the most
important accomplishments oi this year s Student Council was
d I the initiating ot that series of rip-rarin' panel discussions that
S everyone enjoyed so much, The panels gave students a chance
to vent steam on such timely problems as cheating and those hateful noon-hour regulations
which everyone agreed should be abolished immediately.
Under the direction oi Mr. Early and Mr, Timmer and with the spirited leadership of loan
l-lansen, the Council also tackled the noon-hour program, citizenship, and safety.
A new constitution was drawn up which provides lor an lnter-Club Council, and a plan
was set up to provide flowers for the memorial,
