As each volume of the GLEAM nears
completion, the staff meets and gives care-
ful consideration to every name on a list
of faculty members who are thought to be
the most eligible at that time to receive the
yearbookis dedication. Length and quality
of service, Willingness to participate in
extra-curricular activities, personality traits,
and the love and respect accorded the indi-
vidual, are pointers that lead to decision.
Secret balloting follows, and it is not until
GLEAM Day, with its ceremonies in as-
sembly, that anyone except those who
counted the ballots, knows who was chosen
for this special recognition.
So it is that now, for the first time, public
announcement is being made of the fact that
this yearis honoree is one whose gentility
and dignity have brought her admiration
and respect, Whose sincerity and consci-
entiousness have gained for her friends and
supporters, Whose ideals and standards
have given her the name "Christianv,
c'Prized Friendv, K'Good Teacherv, and
Whose professionalism and excellent health
have made her an outstanding educator
throughout 49' years of dedicated service.
It is with gratitude for all that she has
done, and with love for her and for all that
she is, that the GLEAM, for a second time
C She also received this compliment in 19492
is dedicated to

nion Citizens Hold Early Secession Meetings
Though it cannot be definitely established as to the
place where the first pre-Civil War secession meeting
was held, it might well have been in Union County. More
than a thousand persons gathered at Padgett's Creek
Church late in August 1861, to discuss the matter-
respectable men, kind-hearted mothers, and lovely
As a follow-up to this meeting, citizens of Union took
action to make fully known their feelings and sentiments.
On a Saturday afternoon in September 1861 a secession
Hag was raised on the corner of the public square. Peo-
ple gathered from many miles in all directions as seces-
sion fever rose to a higher pitch.
Governor William Gist, who was from the Union
District, bent his efforts toward the accomplishment of
the most fateful decision ever made by South Carolina.
Having called a secession convention, Governor Gist and
the other delegates signed the Ordinance of Secession
on December 20, 1861. Benjamin Arthur, Clerk of the
Secession Convention, brought the table on which the
document Was signed to Union and preserved it in his

As they were working in a cotton Held in the Pea Ridge
section of Union County on an April day in 1861, natives
were filled with consternation at the sight of a balloon
descending into their midst. When a man crawled out,
their first thought was that he was a Yankee spy. With
picks, pitch forks, hoes, sticks, and any other tools avail-
able, they went after this man who was presumably an
enemy. Only because one person who had joined the
crowd who was a mason and recognized that the bal-

prevented. Professor Thaddeus Lowe, as this "man from
the skiesi' proved to be, was brought to Union and was
treated with hospitality. During an experiment, it was
learned, he had drifted from Ohio to Union County, S. C.,
a distance of 800 miles in nine hours. Later he became
the Hrst man to organize a U. S. Airforce of balloons.

Hampton Visits Union ln 1376 Tour
To overthrow usurpers in the government, the
Democratic clubs of Union County and the State
worked desperately to elect confederate General
VV ade Hampton governor of South Carolina. On
his campaign tour General Hampton visited
Union in 1876 and spoke at a rally in the grove
of the Female academy. He was introduced by
General William H. Wallace of Union, leader
and speaker of the body of Democratic legis-
lators known as the "Wallace housef,
With the inauguration of Wade Hampton in
1877, life here began once more to be normal
though impoverished. As a result of Radical rule,
governmental treasuries had been exhausted, so
taxes were high. This rule came after the down-
fall of the Confederacy. Nine counties of the
State were declared in a state of rebellion, and
Union was one of the nine. Federal cavalry was
consequently stationed here, and the Radical rule
was felt in every quarter. There were other re-
sults of the Radical rule. Over 200 citizens were
arrested in the course of the time and, in many
cases, confined in jail. From 1866 to 1872 sixteen
dens of the Klu Klux Klan grew up over the
County. Surely Reconstruction Sheriff James
Gideon Long was beset with problems and chal-
lenges seldom known to his oflice.
Becky, Jeannie, and Sally examine a can
non belonging to Mr. Buck Arthur of
Union. A relic of the Civil War, it was
unearthed in Spartanburg in 1959.
Central School now stands in the oak grove where General
Wade Hampton spoke, when campaigning for Governor,
explaining his objectives and those of the "Red Shirtsv, men
organized to suppress Radical control in the State.
General William Wallace, speaker of the
anti-radical legislative group known as
the "Wallace House," resided in this
Union home where jefferson Davis was
once an overnight guest.
Become Greater As
Moderns Learn To
6 pare The Rod?
Teaching in the 1800's was quite different from what it is
today. There were no public schools in South Carolina until
1879. Prior to that time, teachers were hired by groups of fami-
lies to teach children in the local schoolhouse. Some families
hired governesses and tutors to live in their homes and teach
their children manners, reading, writing, spelling, Latin, etc.
School teachers were usually unmarried women, but there was
an occasional male teacher. Subjects were taught by rote, with
each pupil reciting his lesson until he knew it completely. Some
teachers were known to use the rod effectively. Facilities for
teaching were rude, and only basic equipment was furnished.
Today's teachers provide a significant contrast to the teachers
of a century ago. All who teach in the public schools of today
have been graduated from a college or a university. Several at
Union High hold the masters degree. Though the majority of
the teachers are women, there is an increasing number of men
entering the field. Most of the teachers at Union High are local
people who live a full and useful life in community activities.
Many are married and are raising a family while they teach.
The methods of teaching used are very different from those of
the mid-nineteenth century. Corporal punishment is practically
unknown. Lessons are learned by participation, research, ex-
ample, study, and more study. The most modern equipment is
used, and the textbooks are the latest.
Though the methods and equipment used are different, and
though teachers have a better-rounded education, the basic
element which makes a teacher tick is still there. They are
dedicated to their task.

Lack Of Funds Slovvs
With administrators always looking toward the future,
Union High students anticipated continuing improve-
ments in buildings, equipment, and in the educational
program offered them. They were aware that only a lack
of funds kept them from having every medium of learning
that might be advantageous. In a questionnaire issued
by the CLEAM, some of the dreams and hopes of the
administrators were revealed.
The building of a new senior high school that would
serve the needs of the entire county, and turning the
present high school into a junior high school were among
Mr. Turneris keenest desires. Heartily approving Mr.
Turner's suggestion, Mr. Watts also thought it would be
ideal to establish a vocational school in conjunction with
the high school.
Mr. May felt that offering courses in music and art to
each student within the school system, and making spe-
cial classes of advanced instruction available to excep-
tionally bright students, would greatly benefit the student,
the school, and the community. Mr. Farr said he would
like to see an enlargement of the curricula in the ele-
mentary schools, for example, the offering of elementary
French to those in the primary grades.
Looks like a "iight" over the News and Huckleberry Hound in the
Farr household! Marvin, Mr. Farr, Karen, and Mrs. Farr, prepare

Zeal Of dministrators
Besides administrators, teachers, and "personnel", many
"behind the scene workers" contributed to the stability
and the progress of the schools in 1960-1961. Chosen by
popular election and divided into two groups, were the
County Board of Education and the County Board of
Trustees. The Board of Education's main concern was
the Financing of the whole school program, while the
Board of Trustees was primarily concerned with person-
nel and the curriculum program.
The members of the County Board of Education were
as follows: Messrs. Harry B. Farr, chairman, I. N. Berry,
Charles Blackwood, Robert J. Crocker, Harold C. Fowler,
Dr. J. H. Guess, Jack Kelly, Sam T. Strom, and I. D.
Whitehead. Members of the County Board of Trustees
from the Union area included Messrs. Darrel C. Wade,
chairman, Walker Carver, vice-chairman, Harold F owler,
F. S. Glass, W. S. Gregory, Willard Hines, Sammy Sher-
bert, Tom O. Thomas, and James L. Zimmerman. These
two groups directed the operations of the 28 schools in
Union County, and of this total number, 20 were in the

Teachers and promoters of education in Union and the
ty, have been active and influential for much more
than a hundred years. In 1811 the free school system
was adopted, and little school houses began to dot the
district for the benefit of the many children whose parents
could neither afford to maintain their instruction in the
nor pay to send them to private schools. In the
year the Union Library association was chartered
. . . then came the era of the academy, and in the village
of Union there were two of these "pay schools"-one for
young afemalesv, the other for boys. judge D. A. Town-

ee School System Cf 1811 Serves As Starter
When the two academies were reopened in 1869, after
having been closed eight years, four for war and four
for reconstruction, judge Townsend was in charge of
both of them. Only a few of his boys had returned from
the battlefields of Virginia.
An advertisement appearing in the Union press in
February, 1861, headed 'cAn Extraordinary School for
Boys", announced that a school would be opened on
March 1, 1861, with Dr. William Pierce, "a native Caro-
linianv in charge. It said, "Living being cheap, the ex-

An act passed by the "carpetbag" legislature on December 24,
1879, created the public school system of South Carolina. Formed
at this time was district eleven, the Union school district.
Since the first public school building was occupied around
1880, Union schools have made great progress. The first public
school building was a small white building which formerly had
been the townis Presbyterian church.
From the "Little White School Housei' the Union school
moved into the building now known as Central Grammar school,
then to the structure now used by Main Street Iunior High. In
1927, Union High School moved to its present location on Main
Street. Since that time, Union High has continued to grow. The
shop, Iolly building, gymnasium, bandhouse, and finally the
Clifford building have been added to accommodate the growing
activities of an ever-increasing student body.
Changes, however, have not been limited to the buildings. At
first, only nine grades were offered. A big change was made in
1909 when the tenth grade was added. The eleventh grade was
added in 1915. For 32 years eleventh graders were the seniors.
In 1948 the twelfth grade was added.
Throughout the long past, an "A" meant a grade of 90-100.
This year a new grading system went into effect. Now an "A"
means 95-100, "B" denotes a grade in the 88-94 range, "C" is
between 79 and 87, "Dv, 70-785 "En, 60-69, and HFS is 59 and
below. Seventy is the magic mark which a pupil must attain
to pass a subject.

distillation experiment. This goes on in the Science laboratory.
Science courses offered this year were biology, chemis-
try, and physics in the upper grades and general science
in the lower grades.
Biology students concentrated on how and why living
things work as they do. Biology comprised the study of
everything from the giant ferns of the "coal agen to many
species of animals, including man.
In chemistry, the chemical composition of matter was
studied. To fully understand how the elements unite to
form compounds, the chemistry classes did lab work.
Physics classes were concerned with what the physical
make-up of matter is and how matter behaves. Small
models of certain instruments were used to demonstrate
how a water pump works or how to determine the ve-
locity of a moving object.
General science offered the eighth and ninth graders
a course which gave a preview of the sciences to come
later. It taught some of the basic principles of all
sciences. The classes also did experiments to show how
a doorbell, telephone, or telegraph works.
Anyone taking any of the sciences could make a "proj-

Math courses offered this year were general math in
the eighth grade, alegbra in the ninth, tenth, and twelfth
grades, and geometry in the eleventh grade. Business
math was available to those who preferred that subject.
General math took in 'teverything mathematical." The
basic facts of math were studied, plus word problems.
Ninth grade algebra classes learned how to simplify
fractions and how to solve the simpler equations. In the
tenth and twelfth grades the alegbra course was similar,
varying in advancement. Students centered their interest
on quadratic equation, exponents, and radicals. In 1962,
seniors will finish with two and a half years of alegbra
and one semester of trigonometry.
"Theorems, assumptions, and constructionsv were fa-
miliar words to geometry classes. Proving why two
triangles were congruent or why two chords were equal,
were only a few things the students did. Geometry, they
thought, would help those who wanted to be engineers,
surveyors, or even housewives.
Business math students worked mostly on monetary
problems. Realizing the need of knowing how to deal
with money, they took this math course to aid them with

Class Groups Grow Larger
With Each Succeedin
Year From C. 1861To 1961
In the 1860,s, pupils not tutored at home, walked to the nearest
schoolhouse, often as far as five miles. During winter months,
they had to rise long before dawn, do "chores," eat breakfast,
and pack lunch pails. Schoolhouses were, for the most part,
one-room frame buildings with a large stove up front for heat.
Desks were made for two pupils and placed in rows facing the
desk of the teacher. In one corner stood a stool and a "dunce"
cap for those who misbehaved. All grades were taught in the
same classroom by the same teacher.
Since there were no public schools at that time, teachers were
hired by families with children old enough to attend school. The
families took turns boarding the teacher. Anyone with the
equivalent of today's high school education could qualify as a
teacher, provided he could maintain discipline in the classroom.
Subjects taught were elementary reading, writing, and ciphering,
with history thrown in for good measure. Sciences, like physics
and chemistry, were relatively unheard of then.
Today's students, if they live far from the school, walk only
as far as the nearest school bus stop. From there, they are
whisked to school aboard modern buses. School buildings are
large, modern, multi-storied structures, containing many class-
rooms. Individual movable desks are found in each classroom.
Mixing of grades is very rare, but classes are usually large, with
as many as 40 pupils in a class. Teachers are better educated
and more highly specialized, and a greater variety of subject
matter is offered. A student at Union High can choose an indus-
trial, business, or college preparatory course.

Seniors Sport ith Pleasure Their New Cold
December 15 was probably. the happiest day of the
first semester for seniors, on that cloudy, overcast Thurs-
day the long-awaited senior rings arrived. From the very
first rumor that the rings had come, the Ieter Building
fairly jumped with excitement. First period Will long be
associated with the arrival, for that was when the an-
nouncement from the office was made over the public
address system, "Will the seniors please report to the
library?" In 45 minutes all rings had been distributed,
but the seniors, some teary-eyed, lingered to sing spon-
taneously the Alma Mater,
Boys ordered heavy or extra-heavy rings, While the
girls had chosen the medium or "princess, style. The
uprincessi' was the smallest ring of all and its stone
appeared big in comparison with the slender band of
gold. The average cost of the rings was about 319' to 822.
No matter what the size or cost of the ring, everybody
was happy. The whole school rejoiced at their arrival.
Proud exclamations of delight, friendly comparison, and
even the exchanging of rings took place. For well over
a Week this Went on.
It continued to be an often-expressed Wish to start a
ring ceremony. Circumstances prevented it this year, but
perhaps in the future many said it will become a regular
part of Ring Day at Union High. The fact that permis-
sion Was granted for such an assembly was a compen-
sating thought of many.

ln Gym Yields Needed Information To Seniors
Seniors began to feel like seniors on October 12, Col-
lege day. It was then that they reported tothe gymnasium
to meet representatives from the colleges of South Caro-
lina and to be given full information about any in which
they were interested.
Wofford College, the University of South Carolina,
Clemson, Winthrop, Converse, Limestone, Columbia Col-
lege, Newberry, Furman University, Presbyterian Col-
lege, Spartanburg junior and North Greenville-all were
there to tell about college courses, college expenses,
college life. Business schools were also on hand through
Brochures were handed out, college yearbooks were
in evidence, name lists were compiled, requests for ap-
plication blanks were made.
Following College day, some seniors began to discuss
with guidance counselors the possibility of securing
scholarships. Many were available to deserving students,
and applications for them went forward. Among these
were the Elkis scholarships for leadership and character.
General Motors, the Ford Foundation and General Elec-
trical made tempting scholarships available. These were
in addition to the many offered by practically every
Scholarships were awarded to seniors on awards day
during assembly. On this program in assembly, just be-
fore the close of school, other awards were also made.
Among them were the bus drivers bonus to all bus drivers
who had driven a suflicient number of days. And two
history awards, the Woodmen of the World United
States History Awards and the Current Events award,
Seniors showed special interest in the University of South Carolina Bobby, Sandy, fstandingl Joyce, Gene, Iudy, Mulloy, Harriet, and

Seniors Find Time For Fun Despite Workfilled
Parents and teachers often expressed concern over the
fact that "teen-agersv as well as most adults had too
many obligations. But no matter how pressing the sched-
ule, the school year was interspersed with many oppor-
tunities for fun and relaxation.
Parties and little get-togethers dotted the calendar.
Relaxing before the MTV, with friends, and enjoying soft
drinks and crackers or potato chips with some tasty
"dip,,' become a favorite pastime.
Between-season weekends brought shopping sprees,
sometimes to nearby cities, as well as often in Union
stores. Sweaters were a high-ranking fad. "Perry Como's',
for the boys, and matching skirts and sweaters for the
girls, were at an all-time high in popularity.
Outstanding motion pictures appeared in Union and
in nearby Spartanburg. Among them were "Spartacus,
and "Ben-Hurf, Spartanburg also became the center for
bowling enthusiasts, and a new bowling alley there was
a favorite place for students to go on dates.
Mid-winter snow and sleet afforded a novel type of
entertainment in Union in the Deep South-sledding.
During the few days of icy weather, manufactured sleds
and home-made slides quickly appeared on the slopes
of Veterans Park and in many a big backyard.
The end of school brought beach parties and summer
jobs. Many of Union High's own flocked to Ocean Drive
and to other South Carolina beaches, to participate in
summer fun and frolic. The sun and the surf afforded
welcomed relief from nine months of hard work at school.
Cotton candy, candy apples, and midway rides make school day Lee, Thomas, Karen, Lois, Peggy, jean, Ann, and Amelia are
at the fair one of the highlights of the seniors' year. Here Cora "doing the midway." Next, they will visit the many exhibits.

Affords Excitement nd Pleasure To Seniors
On Friday, October 28, there was great excitement
around the school. Students were Huting crepe paper,
buying cellophane tape, borrowing scissors, and gather-
ing other items needed for decorating. "Homecoming,
was on every lip, and final preparations for the festivities
of the afternoon and the evening were excitedly under-
way. Plain autos became glamorous floats, the empty
gym became a ballroom, and drab goal posts were trans-
formed with the black and gold of Union High, and the
gay colors of the opposing team. This was to be a last
big fling for senior football players. They had selected
their sponsors several weeks before. The senior class had
nominated three candidates for homecoming queen, and
from these, the student body had chosen a queen whose
identity had not yet been disclosed.
At 4:00 in the afternoon a parade led by the band
proceeded down Main Street. Following were the spon-
sors in convertibles, next came a convertible earring the
three candidates for queen. Then followed homeroom
cars, all decorated, all contesting for 'ifirst placev for
originality, beauty, and appropriateness.
Evening came. At long last the identity of the queen
was to be revealed at the game to be played with Greer.
Dramatically, before game time, candidates and sponsors
alike were driven in convertibles to a sponsors, platform
on the sidelines, and each senior player escorted his
sponsor to her seat. From there at half time, to the music
of "The Sound of Musicf the three candidates were
escorted to the football field and the chosen queen was
named and crowned. The climax of Homecoming 1960
had been reached.
The punch table, attractively and appropriately decorated, is a Wilson, Annette, Ianice, Billy, Gaye, Mickey, Ann, and Bruce
popular place at the Homecoming dance. Here Johnny, Ann, wait eagerly for Patty to fill their cups. A gala time followed.
Seniors Publicize Their Plays B Advance Sale
Something new was tried in the way of ticket selling
for the senior play this year. Instead of having faculty
members sell them at the door only, at the time of the
play, each senior was given a number of tickets to sell
in advance of the performance.
'iWanna buy a ticket to the Senior Playf' became a
familiar query around school.
Something new was tried also, in the choice of a senior
play and regarding the scheduled performance. Not one
long play, but two short ones were given and on two
consecutive days, October 12 and 13. First, there was a
matinee for patrons who work on night shifts in the local
mills. Then, the next evening, there was a repeat per-
formance for those who preferred a night show. The
auditorium was filled on each occasion.
Tickets for the play cost 50 cents for students and 75
cents for adults. Profits from the plays went in a fund
to help finance the forthcoming prom.
The Senior plays were directed and staged by a faculty
committee consisting of Mrs. Gregory and Miss Burdette,
co-chairmen, Mrs. Merle Crocker, Mrs. Richbourg, Mrs.
Warr, Mrs. Lyon and Mr. Bice. Committee members
divided play duties among themselves and each one had
a specific job to do.
At recess these seniors are comparing notes on the number of line. They are Linda, Brenda, Jimmy, Alice, Raymond, Judith
tickets to the senior play that they have just sold down the lunch Bobby joe, Eugene, Tommy, and Ronnie. They all sold some

Homerooms Becomes Daily Chore For Seniors
Voting in homeroom got to be a regular thing for
seniors this year. It seemed that almost every morning
there was something to vote on. Senior Superlatives,
Senior of the Month, King and Queen of Hearts, King
Teen, Miss Hi Miss, D. A. R. Girl: these were outstand-
ing choices to be made by the senior class through
Not only was homeroom the place of voting, but also
it was the place where many decisions concerning activi-
ties of the class were made. In their five separate home-
room groups, rather than in general class meetings, the
senior business was carried on.
It was homeroom groups that toured Monarch Mills
early in the fall. They were divided into small units upon
arrival. Each unit had a guide to point out and explain
how cotton to be manufactured into cloth was cleaned,
processed, and inspected. After the tour of the plant,
refreshments were served in the millis main office. The
trip, which lasted about two hours, was given to help
seniors have a better understanding of the textile indus-
try in Union County.
On December 3, as many seniors as wished to do so,
went to the University of South Carolina to see the
Carolina vs. Virginia football game as guest of the Uni-
versity. These were given a tour of the University and
were served lunch in the Russell House, the Universityis
Perhaps these seniors are voting for Senior-of-the-Month during during the year. They are Madison, Margie, Stanley, Dickie, Jack,
their homeroom period, the time used for the casting of ballots Shirley, Barbara, C. T., Sally, Janice, Harold, and Ruth.
Seniors Enjo Homeroorn Parties lust Before
Potato chips, soda pop, cookies, and the singing of
jingle Bells at homeroom gatherings out-distanced study-
ing on Friday, December 16, the day school closed for
the Christmas holidays. Teachers tried to hold down
excitement and proceed as though it were a regular
school day, but the proverbial Christmas spirit Was in
the air, and suppressed excitement had its way.
A special double-assembly program, at which the sen-
ior band played and the audience was invited to sing,
did give an approved outlet to soaring spirits.
At last came 2:35 and the ringing of the dismissal bell.
"Merry Christmasesv were exchanged, and hurrying steps
soon emptied buildings and grounds. Some Went to jobs
already secured in local stores. Others hastened home-
Ward to address Christmas cards, or Wrap gifts, or help
decorate a Christmas tree or front door.
Later, the singing of carols at churches around town
became a holiday event. Snowy Weather on Christmas
eve prevented the usual carolling around a deodara tree
on the lawn of Grace Methodist church, decorated by
the City of Union.
Partying and dancing punctuated the period. Among
the "big eventsl' was a winter ball, given by Union High
girls at the Veteranis Memorial park, and a dance spon-
sored by Union,s Clemson club, featuring the Tigertones,
an instrumental group from Clemson College.
The 17-day holiday ended Tuesday, January 3. Then
came the return to school to prepare for mid-term exams.
With all homerooms festively decorated for Christmas time, parties refreshments while chatting and singing are Susan, Ruth, Frances,
ended the last day of school before Christmas holidays. Enjoying Brenda, Mary Ann, Tommy, Vance, Wilbur, Wayne, Sandy, Alice.

Seniors Struggle At Mid-Term, Their Final Round
Mid-term exams for most seniors were their last at
Union High. All who were passing at the end of the
year did not have to take finals. If they had passed at
mid-term, and also at the end of the fourth six-weeks
grade period in early March, they might expect to be
graduated at the end of the second semester.
For graduation and the receiving of a State diploma,
each had fulfilled State-prescribed requirements as fol-
lows: four years of English, two years of math, two of
social studies, one of which must be United States his-
tory, and one year of science. Besides these, there must
be one amajori' of three units, other than English, and
four units from electives, or subjects of their own choos-
ing. A unit was acquired by making a passing grade of
70 on a yearis course scheduled for credit.
After exams, seniors began to consider seriously various'
colleges and what their choice might be. On each of the
scheduled dates for a College Board Entrance examina-
tion, a group from Union High traveled to Spartanburg
to the Naval Reserve Center or to other testing centers
around the state to take a scholastic aptitude test and
various achievement tests required for entrance by most
of the colleges.
Around the last of january, the seniors began to receive
letters from the college of their choice informing them
as to whether or not their scores from the entrance exam
were satisfactory and as to whether or not their appli-
cation had been accepted. If accepted, thev began to
make plans and to look forward to the day when they
would be college freshmen instead of high school seniors.
Encouraged by the thoughts that first semester exams could be better. This group includes Winston, Myra, Doris, Jane, Baylus,
their last, seniors study diligently for that passing grade of 70 or Thomas, Mike, Tommy, Beth, Carolyn, and Charlie.
Special Occasions During
For the seniors, Wednesday, August 31, was a special
occasion, for on that day their last year at Union High
started. The following Monday was Labor Day and a
holiday from school, thus starting a series of "breaks" in
the yearis routine.
The Union County fair in October brought a grin of
delight to many. On "F air dayv for the "white schoolsf
school was dismissed at 1:00 instead of at 2:35, and
equipped with free "gate passes," nearly everyone turned
out for midway rides, candy apples, cotton candy, and
the viewing of blue-ribbon exhibits by 4-H'ers.
Thanksgiving holidays were November 24 and 25. Big
football games and turkey dinners glamorized the brief
The Year Furnish Fun
A Christmas dinner in the cafeteria added to the festive
nature of things between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Roast turkey, sage dressing, rice with giblet gravy, cran-
berry sauce, and ambrosia were served to a larger-than-
usual group who had heard that all this was on the
menu, and for the regular price of 30 cents.
With spring came Easter holidays, March 31 through
April 3. New clothes made their appearance. Girls ap-
peared in crisp cottons, with skirts slightly below their
knees, boys wore sport shirts open at the collar, and
light-weight "slacks.,' Lavender was a popular color.
Then, before anyone realized that the time was at
hand, commencement arrived, with its series of rehearsals
for closing events and the sad farewells of graduation
night. Truly 1960-61 was starred with special occasions.
These seniors are decorating their homeroom bulletin board for
Valentineis day, as they do for other special occasions. They are
Earl, Ray, Judy, Anna, Myra, Mary Anna, Patsy, Frances, and
Benny. Each is ready to offer an creative idea of his own.

Parade Gives Preview
Easter parade 1961 transported the assembly audience
to a land of exotic flowers, soothing music, grass skirts,
and gentle breezes-the land of Hawaii. Presented Fri-
day, March 30, it was a salute to this, the fiftieth state
of the union.
The curtain opened to reveal a midnight luau. The
"Hawaiians, were entertaining their American friends
with songs of the islands, with interesting facts about
their paradise state, and with Hawaiian food such as poi,
limu, lara leaves, and "hula-burgers."
To demonstrate to the Hawaiians the manner in which
the "Mainlanders" commemorate Easter, the "Ameri-
cans,', dressed in their new spring outfits brought the
program to a close with a traditional Easter parade.
Of Senior pring Frocks
Couples, chosen from the senior class after tryouts, pa-
raded around the flower-bedecked stage to the strains of
the popular song, Easter Parade.
Preceding this demonstration of the secular side of the
Easter season, there was a sacred program in assembly
the day before. This one consisted of the singing of
hymns by a group from the glee club, an Easter prayer,
led by a member of the faculty, and the reading of the
Resurrection story from the Bible.
Impressed by the sacredness of the program and the
true significance of the season, students and teachers left
the auditorium with the feeling that they had attended
a worship service at church.
With the help of Mrs. Kirby and Miss Robinson, two of the senior Nancy, Caroline, Eugene, Janet, Annette, Cary, Mary- Carol,
teachers, these seniors are planning the script and discussing the Sammie, and Elaine. Nothing during the school year 1S more
decoration for their annual Easter Parade. They are Kenneth, thrilling to seniors than the Easter parade and its memorable color.
Topic Of Senior Prom Becomes Special alute
The High School gymnasium was a scene of splendor
as the seniors, their dates, and members of the faculty
assembled there that April evening to enjoy the long-
awaited prom. All were bedecked in their Hnest. The
girls wore fonnal gowns of rufHed net or of bouffant
chiffon and lace. Their skirts were hooped: their bodices,
often sleeveless, were sometimes strapless, too.
Corsages of orchids, carnations, or roses, the gift of
escorts, made a veritable flower garden of the dance
floor. For the most part, the boys wore white dinner
jackets and colorful cummerbunds. Some, however, were
in dark tuxedos, and a few wore their newest day-time
At the door, upon arrival, each received a favor sug-
gestive of Hawaii. Decorations of gay-colored paper and
As the crowning touch of their social life, the Prom provides the
seniors with entertainment and adds to their book of precious
memories. These seniors, entering the decorated gym of Union
tropic-looking flowers brought forth the exclamation,
Ham biscuits and southern fried chicken were favorites
from a bounteous buffet supper served around 9:30.
Other items on the long, flower-centered table, were
sandwiches, sliced cakes, olives, pickles, cheese dainties,
cookies, and candy. Punch was served from a decorated
A program of entertainment, in addition to dancing
to the tunes of an out-of-town orchestra, followed the
Hawaiian theme. Members of the junior class partici-
pated in this. At midnight the festivities at the park
came to an end, but instead of going straight home, cer-
tain small groups went by invitation to the homes of
friends for a short, personal get-together before final

Cf High School Life Shine On Senior Class Da
Class Day this year followed the same theme that was
used for the Easter Parade and the Prom: A Salute to
Hawaii. On this program the seniors reviewed the high-
lights of their freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior
years. Then came the climaxing ceremony in which the
outgoing president of the student body passed a lighted
torch, symbol of learning and leadership, to the incoming
student body president, and the president of the senior
class placed the academic robe he was wearing, upon
the shoulders of the president of the rising junior class.
Following these traditional acts, the members of the
class of ,6l rose and sang "Follow the Gleamf' the
adopted school hymn, and then before relinquishing their
seats in the center front section of the auditorium, they
also sang, "We are leaving the school We love so dear,
Union High. We bid farewell to the halls of cheer, Union
High. To the junior class we throw the torch, hold it
high and never lose the high standards of our school,
With tear-streaked faces they marched out of the audi-
torium. After the juniors had proudly taken their places,
they sang "Farewell to Thee." In response to this, the
seniors, now in the hall outside the auditorium door, sang
the Alma Mater. Hardly an eye was dry. The years-long
dream of Hnishing high school, now gave way to regret
at having to leave.
If you notice a sad look in the eyes of these seniors, it could be Rebecca, Jimmy, Rodger, Barbara, Gayle, Biluce, Mike, Bill, and
that they are practicing the Alma Mater for Class Day, which will jonnie. They are on the line that says, While our youthful

aps And Gowns Co To
Capped and gowned and to the tune of "Glory, Laud,
and Honorf the seniors marched down the aisles of the
First Baptist church to take their places in the center-
front of the sanctuary for their baccalaureate sermon.
They listened attentively to each minister on the pro-
gram and to the high school chorus that sang. Then
rising and turning to face the congregation they them-
selves sang, "Follow the Gleamf, White flowers on the
altar, against a background of green, added to an air
of solemn quiet.
Marching out, the seniors were thoughtful. Now only
the graduation exercises remained, the last experience of
their high school life.
At eight oiclock the next evening, music started and
the senior processional into the high school auditorium
moved toward the stage. The audience arose and every
parent and loved one there, watched pridefully to see
his special 'cgraduatev marching by. Leading one of the
lines was the president of the class, leading the other,
was the president of the student body.
In the program soon in progress, the class president
presided, announcing the numbers. A devotional was led
by one of the high-ranking Kgraduatesf, A welcome was
spoken by the class salutatorian. State high school di-
plomas Were awarded by the principle, the "Kathleen
Arthurv medal was presented to the valedictorian, and
she in turn made a farewell speech. Another class had
come and gone at Union High.
Could the smiles on these seniors' faces mean that they are
dreaming of the day when they will actually wear their caps and
gowns-graduation day? Being measured in the lower oliice are

Steering ommittee Makes Important Decisions
Several important decisions regarding the Senior class
were made by a Steering committee composed of the
ofHcers of the class, the presidents of the iive senior
homerooms, the two senior student body oiiicers, and the
five senior homeroom teachers, together with Principal
One of the decisions was that of changing the setting
for the prom from the clubhouse of Veterans Memorial
park to the School gymnasium. The reason for this
change was the fact that this year's large class, with their
guests, needed more space than was provided by the
clubhouse. The committee also decided that a fee of S1
would be paid for each guest of a senior.
The Steering committee divided to help the teachers
with the prom and the Senior assembly. Thus half of
them became the Prom committee and the others the
Senior Assembly committeej
Concerning the Senior assembly, the Steering com-
mittee gave the class an opportunity to decide for them-
selves what type of assembly they wanted. Chosen was
the type centering in a skit rather than in the reading of
a class history, prophecy, poem, last will and testament,
etc. However, writers for these features were chosen,
and their writings were printed in the school paper.
Senior Officers And ponsors Make Big Plans
Both the senior homeroom teachers and the specially
designated senior sponsor were busy most of the year
promoting, planning, and supervising senior activities. It
Was the responsibility of Mrs. Kirby, Miss Robinson, Mrs.
Warr, Miss Brown, and Mrs. Lamb, sponsor, to see to it
that all duties were divided among themselves. Eachl
was responsible for several important events.
Among the activities, was the program of graduation.
The teachers made sure that every senior who was
accredited was capped and gowned and had ordered
invitations if he so desired. They made the necessary
arrangements for the Baccalaureate service and for the

ers, saw to it that Miss Hi Miss, the D. A. R. Good Citi-
zen, and King-Teen were duly elected. They also made
sure that the selection of the "Furman Scholarsi' and of
the Iunior Rotarians took place.
With one in charge of each activity, these teachers
made all plans for the Prom, the Easter Parade, the Re-
ligious Easter program, and the Senior assembly. They
also served as advisers to the individual seniors who
needed help with regard to contests and scholarships
which were available to them. To the senior, these
teachers were persons Whom they could talk to about

Of the 1,050 students at Union High, 151 of them are
juniors. Only two of their subjects, English and Ameri-
can history, were required. For the other two electives,
they could choose from French, chemistry, geometry,
shorthand, typing, and others.
In the fall every junior took an I. test, which was
offered by the guidance department. The purpose of this
was to show the teachers the I. of each junior. The
juniors themselves were not informed of their intelligence
In the spring some of the juniors who had a high scho-
lastic average took the National Merit examination. This
was to help determine their knowledge and ability in
comparison with other junior students throughout the
souvenirs which Miss Beaty has gathered on her trips to Europe.
Many such informal meetings were held to discuss the problems
and activities of the junior class. This is in Miss Beatys room.

Two juniors were student body oflicers. They filled the

This year Miss Hopeis fifth period English class formed
a new club, The American Literature club. Its purpose
was to make literature classes more interesting by having
panel discussions and other activities that made studying
and learning more appealing to students.
Some of the juniors were initiated into such clubs as
the Beta club, National Honor Society, and the Quill and
Scroll. To become a member of one of these clubs was
quite an honor for top-ranking juniors.

In the fall when all students, with the exception of
the seniors, were taking some type of psychological tests,
the ninth graders took the Henmon-Nelson Mental Ability
test. In the spring they took the SRA Youth Inventory
The average age of a freshman was 14 years, the age
at which they were legally able to obtain an automobile
All ninth graders were required to take English, gen-
eral science, and math, but they had a choice of taking
Latin, home economics, citizenship, or shop. For those
who were music-minded, there were also band and glee
club to be chosen.
They could either join or work toward membership in
various school clubs. Participating in sports activities
was enjoyed by many. For those interested in helping
to produce a yearbook there was the GLEAMQ for those
interested in journalism, there was H i-Life.
Being a "senior-lower grader" was a thrill for every
ninth grader. Even more exciting was looking forward
to the coming year when he would be an "upper-graderf,

Counselors Aid Eighth Graders With Schedules
"We,ve finally made iti' was a familiar chanting around
Union High in the fall, when around 337 happy, smiling
eighth graders entered for the first time. Eager to find
out what high school was all about, these students
accepted their everyday routine after being divided into
11 homerooms. Along with the ninth graders, they were
considered "lower gradersf, They had lunch at the lower
grade recess, attended assembly on Thursdays, and had
long homeroom period on Tuesdays.
The guidance counselors were particularly concerned
with this group of students, most of them around 13 and
14 years of age. They helped them, one at a time in the
presence of their parents, to plan the course of study
they would follow toward graduation.
The eighth graders were required to study English,
general science, history, and math. During their study
periods they engaged in physical education, band, or
chorus. They were also eligible to apply for positions
on the GLEAM and Hi-Life staffs. The only club for
eighth graders was the Science Discovery club, but they
could be members only if they maintained a science
average of "B" or above.
Approximately 150 of the eighth graders were trans-
ported to and from school by bus. Around 125 of them
had lunch in the cafeteria every day. Some were seen
during their recess eating lunches brought from home.
This year the eighth grade elected class oiiicers. Mrs.
Richbourg was their sponsor.

School Clubs Unknown ln
Past Century Now Cover
ll Phases Cf tudent Life
A century ago, few high-school-level students had organiza-
tions as students of the present know them. In the small schools
of the 1860's, there was scarcely time for clubs to be organized.
At that time, however, "elocution" was studied and awards were
given those especially proficient at speaking. Cantatas were
planned and produced. At Commencement exercises, speeches
and orginal essays were given. These activities mushroomed into
the clubs of today.
A student of thatlday would surely be overwhelmed if he
could step into the place of a typical Union High student. He
would certainly find himself rushing from class to class, and then,
after school, to some club or staff meeting. He might even
suspect that the sole purpose of the school was the organizing
of clubs. He would soon discover, however, that membership
in most clubs is dependent on good grades and that school work
is by far the most important consideration at Union High.
Nearly 30 clubs were active at UHS this year. Some were
honor societies, others were class clubs, yet others consisted of
students whose interests lay in the same field. Some organiza-
tions were more active than others. A few class clubs, organized
to promote interest in a specific subject, found that class time
simply did not allow a project. Other clubs. were constantly ac-
tive, engaged in some school or community activity. Nearly every
student at Union High belonged to one or more organizations.

STUDENT BODY OFFICERS. R. L. Mease, treasurer, Peter
Berry, president, Billy Lawson, vice-president, and Ralph Brown,
secretary-discuss plans for selling pencils in the student supply
store with the sponsor Miss Emmie Brown.
To afford students and teachers a let-up the day after
mid-term exams, and to raise money for future Council
needs, the Student Council sponsored a showing in as-
sembly of The Philadelphia Story, a full-length, academy
award winning motion picture. The first showing at 8:30,
just after roll call, was for the lower grades, the second
showing at 10:30 was for the upper grades.
Decals, Union High T-shirts, and loose-leaf notebook
paper were a few of the articles for sale in the Student
Council supply storei. Open from 8:00 to 8:30 each morn-
ing and at both upper and lower grades recesses, the
store was patronized by students and by faculty.
A suggestion box in the hall was a means of encour-
aging students to ask questions and to make suggestions
regarding campus life. Through this medium, several
suggested having sock hops after home basketball games.
This idea was one that was acted upon, being carried
out in cooperation with the cheerleaders.

Future Teachers Begin Year ith New Sponsor
Under the direction of a new sponsor, Mrs. Elizabeth
Wilburn, the Future Teachers, club began the 1960-61
school session with an October assembly program. Six-
teen new members from the tenth, eleventh and twelfth
grades were inducted, bringing the total membership of
the club to 34. From these members, new and old, each
teacher chose a girl to be her special assistant. Duties of
this special future teacher included such matters as
checking objective type papers, dusting classroom furni-
ture, washing black-boards, and even on rare occasions,
going through the routine of conducting classes.
For the first time in the history of the club, members
were given an opportunity to purchase an oHicial F. T. A.
pin. The pin had the initials of the club and the year the
student was in the club. Almost every member bought
Senior members of the club had an opportunity to sub-
stitute for one day in the class or grade of their choice,
teaching the subject in which they felt best qualified.
F In May, a final meeting was held for the purpose of
electing new officers. Included in this meeting was a
social hour in the home economics room.
"As a Future Teacher, one of your duties .is to help your assigned
teacherf' Mrs. Wilburn, sponsor, 1S saying to Gayle and Ann.

Quill nd Scroll Sells Plastic Yearbook Covers
Discussing whether or not Quill and Scroll should undertake the
sale of plastic covers for t.he yearbook are members Anna, Mary
Anna, and Becky.
Quill and Scroll invitations were issued Monday, Feb-
ruary 27, to I8 seniors and juniors from the staffs of the
Hi-Life and the CLEAM, who had qualiiied for member-
ship in the International Honor Society for High School
Almost immediately the members, old and new, took
as a club project the selling of plastic yearbook covers.
Covers of this kind, which gave protection to the GLEAM,
had long been considered a need here. The sales price
was 25:6 each.
Initiation ceremonies took place in assembly. Regu-
lation Quill and Scroll pins were presented to each new
member by officers of the chapter, and a large gold quill
pen was used to sign the oflicial register. In the repeating
of vows each new member promised to uphold the high
standards of the school and its publications, and to main-
tain friendly relations between the publication staffs.
Blue and gold, the colors of Quill and Scroll, were seen
in the stoles worn by the officers and in the satin table

The State convention of the Society took place at
Spartanburg High School during the week-end of March
ll. Attending were Jonnie Weatherford, Sandy Hughes,
Beverly Cain, Carolyn Hembree and the sponsor, Miss
Hope. During the convention, the new State officers were

Co-editors of the GLEAM, Jonnie Weatherford and Charlie Jordan,
are introducing the play, "Long Live the King", which was put on
at the beginning of the subscription campaign for the 1961 GLEAM.
In reference to the GLEAM,S having just been notiiied
of its top rating in both National and State yearbook
contests, this yearis subscription campaign was "kicked
offv with a dramatic assembly program at which "King
GLEAM,, was crowned and then presented various em-
blems of award by princes and princesses gathered
around his throne. In the midst of all this acclaim, word
came that the villain, "Krookself of Mosbullf was trying
to destroy the King. Hunted and found by guards, the
enemy dashed across the stage, down the aisle, and then
'gBOOMl',, blew himself up with his own "at'em, Bum."
The play was climaxed by shouts of, "Long live the King!
Long live King GLEAMl,, The GLEAM pep song followed.
In the two-weeks campaign that followed, over 700
subscriptions to the 1961 yearbook were secured. Each
copy cost 35.00, an amount that most subscribers paid
in two equal payments, one in September and the other
in February. To take care of extra needs, 750 GLEAMS
were ordered. The subscription taking had been pre-
ceded by an ad-selling campaign, in which more picture
ads were sold than in any previous year. Ad prices
ranged from 88.00 to 85000.
In the late summer and early fall, the GLEAM was
represented at three yearbook conventions, to two of
which delegates from the staff were sent. The Columbia
Scholastic Press Association convention at Columbia Uni-
versity in New York City was attended by Charlie jordan,

came to the 1959-'60 GLEAM from the National Scholastic
Press Association, from its contest at the University of
Minnesota. At the South Carolina Yearbook convention
at Lander College, attended by jonnie Weatherford,
Judy Gwinn, Peter Berry, Beverly Cain, Iudy Ieter, and
Miss Gwinn, the GLEAM won first place and was given
an engraved loving cup. Peter Berry, senior associate
editor of the GLEAM, was elected president of the SCYA
at this time.
In the spring, after the 1961 volume had been "put to
bedf' plans were carried out for the formation of the
1962 GLEAM staff. Members of the student body who
met high qualifications were given application forms.
They had to have a general average of 85 or better, be
recommended by a member of the faculty for depend-
ability, conduct, and effort, and give reasons for wanting
to be on the staff. About 150 applications were made.
From these, 45 were chosen by a committee from the
staff, approved by the adviser.
As a climax to the year, the staff had a patio party at
Juxa, the country home of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon May,
on the afternoon of GLEAM Day, the day the book was
circulated. Hamburgers, potato chips, salad, ice cream,
and soft drinks were enjoyed.

Hi-Life Gets Honors,
An International second place award in Quill and
Scroll, a rating of merit in the South Carolina Press
Association contest, and an article on "vacations," writ-
ten by Jean Hyder, won honorable mention infthe Story
of the Month judging at Winthrop College: these were
honors captured in 1960 by H i-Life, Union High's news-
paper. With certificates of these awards, the stall this
year started a display in a trophy case in the main hall
of the Jeter building.
Beginning in September, an addition to the Hi-Life
this year was "Roto", a student newspaper supplement
that featured sports, news, beauty aids, and stories.
There were 45 members on the stalf. The subscription
price was 50 cents a semester, the total number of sub-
scribers was 460. The paper itself was financed through
both ads and subscriptions.
Hi-Life was published once a month throughout the
school year. In exchange with papers from other schools,
it was sent to all parts of South Carolina and to a few

Mr. Ward looks on and gives helpful advice to Bill Graham who
is preparing one of the preliminary sets of apparatus needed in
his science fair project. This was one of the prerequisites for
membership in the Futurian Science club.
Futurians Delve into
The Science Mysteries
To probe into the Wonders and mysteries of science
and to impress on students the growing importance of
science in the life and the affairs of the world today were
the purposes of the Futurians club, an affiliate of the
Science Clubs of America.
Chosen from the eleventh and twelfth grades, the
members had to maintain an average of 85 or higher in
all their studies and had to be science majors. This year
the club's sponsor was Mr. Ward, who joined the Union
High faculty in the fall after having taught a year at the
Woodruff High School.
Following the selection of new members, Initiation day
was held. In a humorous initiation, the girls wore no
make-up, used rags to tie their hair, and wore unmatch-
ing shoes, the boys wore make-up, earrings, and un-
matched socks. All alike sought to get the signatures of
ten senior members on a placard worn "piggy-backf, The
day was highlighted when the new members were made
to sing while parading up and down Main Street in their
outlandish dress with their signature posters on the backs.

Around National election time, the members of the
Speech club held a Presidential debate, with each side
being equally represented. This gave every member a
chance to debate in public as well as to express his opin-
ion on the election.
In April the two speech classes gave a one-act play,
"One Happy F amily,', in assembly. The play was given
twice, with one class presenting it for the lower grades
the other class presenting it for the upper grades.
In order to be eligible for membership in the Speech
club, one had to be, or to have been, a member of one
of the speech classes, and while maintaining an average
of 85 in speech and in English. The membership of the
club was 50. The purpose of the organization was to
teach its members correct emphasis, posture, poise, and
"Five helps for memorizing" were stressed for all stu-
dents of speech. They were as follows: Qlj Copy pass-
age into notebook, Q25 Memorize thought, not lines,
f3JNote how each thought follows the preceding one,
MJ Get the feel of the rhythm, 15D Note and learn the
words that rhyme.

Steuogs No Longer To Be Student Secretaries
In other years Young Stenogs served as student secre-
taries to the teachers of Union High. This year, however,
this ceasedto be true. The club dropped this activity
from its list. If a teacher desired the special assistance
of one of the members, it was given, but specific secre-
taries were not assigned the teachers as in time past.
Any senior girl who had taken shorthand and typing
in both her junior and senior years and had averaged 85
or higher was acceptable to the club. An initiation fee
of 81.50 was required of each member. Meetings were
held during regular class periods.
With Miss Robinson and Mrs. Warr as sponsors, the
club members tried to increase their efficiency in typing
and shorthand in order to make better future secretaries.
They learned that to be a good secretary one must be
willing to practice and work hard toward perfection.
A Christmas party just before Christmas holidays was
a main event for the members of the club. Refreshments
were paid for from the treasury. Singing carols and
chatting with friends served as entertainment.

Seniors Have Two Plays Instead Of lust One
Early fall rather than spring, which had long been the
customary time, was the period of this yearis "senior
playvg and instead of one play, two were given. Another
departure from tradition was that the plays were pres-
ented twice, once Wednesday in matinee and again
Thursday night. The dates were October 12-13. The
matinee innovation permitted many parents employed in
industry to be able to see the plays. The Wednesday-
Thursday schedule avoided conflict with Friday-night

Membership in the Latin club covered all students
currently taking Latin and also those who had completed
two years of the language. To further a knowledge of
Roman culture, class projects were required at different
times during the year. Among these, posters were made
and reports were given on books pertaining to Roman

Block U Jacket Has Football umber On rm
Thirty-four, who had excelled in baseball, golf, foot-
ball, or tennis, along with the senior cheerleaders, and
the team managers, composed the Block U club this
year. Each member of the club was presented either a
sweater or a jacket by the school. If any athlete "let-
teredv in more than one sport, he received the emblem
of each sport on his "Block Uf,

This year the lettered sweaters and jackets were pres-
ented in a very new way. The football team received
theirs at a football banquet and the other athletes were
given theirs one morning before the school day started.

To understand themselves and others was the purpose
of the Psychology clubs this year. They consisted of all
students who took the course in psychology.
Optical illusions and their influence on everyday lives
was one of the popular subjects of study in psychology.
This included such matters as camouilaging, the effects
of illusions on hairstyling, and the designing of wearing
apparel for tall and short people, and for large and small
Because a series of articles on better studying habits,
featured in an area newspaper, the Spartanburg Herald
Journal, ran parallel to a chapter on this subject, this
series was used in classroom procedure.
Improving the personality was another objective of the
clubs. Five means of testing personality were studied.
These were as follows: personality rating test by which
numbers are assigned to different ratings, the interview,
standardized questionnaires, real-life situation tests, and
the projection technique in which one sees his faults in
To make classroom discussions more effective, students
sometimes enacted situations that they read about in
their books. This was accomplished as a game in which
the students tried to guess what their fellow classmates
were attempting to portray.
Approximately 100 students took this course in psy-
chology and by doing so gained information for coping
with everyday situations.

Library Club Goes To
Visit Carnegie Library
Visiting the Carnegie library of Union, was enjoyed
by the Library club early in the year. There the student
librarians were shown locally owned antiques on display,
as Well as the arrangement of books and periodicals and
details of the management of a city library. Before leav-
ing, they heard the history of this library, which was the
first in the State to be established by Carnegie funds.
Student librarians were given experience in assisting
at the school library desk, in checking books in and out,
in keeping bulletin boards attractive With displays of
current book jackets, in promoting appreciation and care
of books, and in showing films on library procedures.
Miss Burdette, Library club sponsor, demonstrates the operation
of a slide projector to Ralph Baker, Stanley Teague, and Jimmy
Sherbert. All look and listen eagerly to learn the fundamentals.

Biology Club Members
ake Projects For Fair
Projects carried out by each of the 87 members of the
Biology club were on such subjects as heredity, leaf and
insect collections, and the growing of plants by chemi-
cals. Motivating the work was the plan to exhibit the
best of these projects at the annual Science fair spon-
sored by Woiford college in Spartanburg.
To be a member of this club, students had to have a
scholarship average of 85 or above and show a sincere
interest in biology.
The purpose of the organization was to increase inter-
est in and knowledge of biology and to stimulate an
understanding of the importance of it in the lives of
individuals. Beginning in October, meetings were held
at irregular intervals to plan club work and to discuss

Meeting once a month, the English Book club provided
an open forum for book reports, talks, discussions, and
reviews. The clubs made up of Mrs. Lamb's senior
English classes, also enjoyed slides of England which
paralleled their study of English literature. The choice
of books to be read was left entirely up to each member.
Surprisingly to some, the list of books read compiled a
selection of reading material that ranged from Shake-
spear to Mark Twain.

Math clubs were formed by the three senior algebra
classes at the beginning of the year. Each club chose
oiiicers and made plans for future meetings. Due to
limited time and crowded schedules of seniors, club
meetings were irregular, but throughout the year, the
various functions, uses, and practical applications of
mathematics were discussed.
Another part of the program included discussions of
brain-tiring and brain-teasing problems, presented by

members of the club, who wished the class as a whole
to work out some solution.
With enthusiasm, the club members measured the pros
and cons in choosing math as a profession. It was gen-
erally conceded that the Held of math is one with ever-
widening horizons. At the end of the year, the club
enjoyed class parties, at which each member celebrated
his own personal victory over senior algebra.

Attention During amp
Camp Socareda, the South Carolina Education Association
camp in the mountains of North Carolina, was the prelude to an
eventful year for the Union High band. The Ware Shoals band
also attended this camp, and each student was given individual
instruction in his instrument. Students from both bands partici-
pated in a massed band concert on the last day of camp.
Using their camp training, the band played a concert at the
Spartanburg Memorial auditorium for the first Republican con-
vention ever held in South Carolina. Taking time out from
marching practice, they played for the Democratic rally in
Union. This was in connection with the Presidential-election
From politics to marching, they competed with 14 bands from
North and South Carolina at the Piedmont Interstate fair in
Spartanburg. They had previously placed fifth, but this year
they marched into third place. Spectators often commented on
the band's improvement during football half-times when they
executed precision drill formations.
Leaving the high school at a sleepy 6:00 in the morning, the
band invaded Clemson College campus for the annual Band
Day in November. Thirty-two bands with a thousand students
in them, performed formations and played music together. They
played under the leadership of Mr. Butler, Clemson College
Raising funds for new unifonns and transportation, the band
sold calendars, chocolate, coconut, and mint candy, and raifled
homemade cakes. The South Carolina State Music contest
climaxed a busy and exciting year for the band.

As a treat for the Beginners band was the sight reading
clinic for them. Using his own book, Mr. Pat Garnett,
author of the book, Better Sight-Reading, conducted this
course. This course was designed to help prepare begin-
ners for the Junior band.
Some beginners participated in the District Festival
held in Spartanburg in February. They were able to get
into the Senior band after the first year if they passed
the requirements of 14 major scales, sight reading, and

The Junior band also had the sight reading course this
year. These classes lasted every day for two weeks after
school. Each student received help and found this course
interesting. History was also made in the Junior band
this year. A member was chosen to play in the Junior
All-State band for the Iirst time since the Junior band
was organized. This pleased all members of the band.
Union High has a lot to look forward to in the future
years as t ese students proved by their work they will
make good Senior band members, many thought.

Tournaments Place Here
A century ago in Union and Union County, tournaments on
horseback were held near the present site of the Monarch school.
Besides these, foot-racing, high-jumping, and broad-jumping,
horse races, and wrestling matches were held.
At school in years past, there was little or no organized play.
During recess periods, youngsters, left to their own devices for
entertainment, played such games as marbles, jumping rope,
pop-the-whip, tag, London bridge is falling down, and follow
the leader. Boys often played mumble-peg and spun tops in the
ring. Without supervised play, exuberant spirits and restless
energy many times resulted in school-yard fights.
Today at Union High as elsewhere, organized sports are a part
of the educational program. Physical education classes are held
for both boys and girls, and there is a. varied program on inter-
scholastic sports. In the fall the Yellow jacket football team
plays a tough schedule. In December comes the basketball
season, followed in the spring by tennis, baseball, track, and golf.
School spirit at Union High has been steadily rising over the
past few years. The Yellow Jacket Booster club, composed of
interested citizens of the community, has helped a great deal to
bring the school's sports to the attention of Union Countians.
This year the football team moved its games to the new County
stadium, where more light and more and better seats were avail-
able. Reserved seats were sold prior to the season to help raise
money for the athletic program. Large crowds. of spectators
turned out for the games on every occasion when the weather
was favorable, and each football game, with its band music and
its colorful half-time ceremonies, was a bright pageant as well
as arousing contest.

Yellow Iackets Use Forceful Football Tactics
"Beady- - -Hutf' were the signals barked out by Union
Highls quarterback which sent the big eleven into fast
With the help of a new assistant coach and-with their
pre-season scrimmage against York, Parker, and Green-
ville successfully completed, the Yellow jackets of Union
High anxiously entered the opening game. Four yards
and a cloud of dust proved to be good tactics as the
powerful Yellow Jackets jarred Laurens in an exciting
game 26 to 0.
Although the Union fans gained much confidence after
a 51-yard off-tackle scoring play in the second half, the
attempt for the extra point failed. Spartanburg edged
the Union team 7 to 6.
Due to fumbles and the costly extra point, the Yellow
Iackets lost to the Bulldogs of Newberry in an extremely
hard-fought contest at Newberry by a score of 13 to 12.
Unionis swift offensive team was unable to surpass the
Yellow Jackets, tough defensive unit against their big
competition, Byrnes. The defense held like a brick Wall,
but unfortunately the offense gave up two safeties which
put the Byrnes Rebels in front 4 to O.
A wet field and the number one team in the state
caused the Yellow Iackets to lose their Fifth game. Unable
to match the strength of the Gaffney Indians, Union was
overpowered 20 to 0.
Leading North Augusta by two points in the first
quarter gave Unionis Yellow Jackets new life, but losing
their scoring punch in crucial situations gave North
Augusta a 13 to 2 victory.
The Union team, bruised and disappointed, made a
magnificent come-back against Lancaster. Carrying the
precious pigskin over the goal twice with much enthusi-
asm enabled the Yellow jackets to win by a score of
12 to 7.
With the excitement of homecoming, the Union team
became alert and mistake-conscious. They tied Greer
0 to 0 in a scoreless deadlock.
Dadis night and a 13 to 0 victory made a thrilling
evening. From a 22-yard "Woodruff special" pass play
and a 70-yard drive, the Yellow jackets crossed the glory
stripe twice and kicked an extra point defeating the
Bulldogs of Woodruff.
Over-confidence and injuries led to the defeat of
Union's Yellow Jackets. The Red Cyclones led by a score
of 13 to 9 in the final game of the year at Chester.

"Heely, Heely, Hily, Hon was one of the new songs
brought forth at the football games this year. The six
cheerleaders began work early to get new cheers and
routines for added interest and variety. They started
work on these the last of the summer and introduced
them at the first pep rally of the fall.
Thursday night and Friday morning pep rallies were
among the projects of the cheerleaders. During the foot-
ball season they, along with the Student Council, spon-
sored sock hops after each home game. The hops were
held in the gymnasium, and admission was ten cents a
student. During basketball season the cheerleaders also
took it upon themselves to sponsor sock hops after home
Yelling, jumping, and at all times maintaining a friendly
relationship between out-of-town guests and home spec-
tators, was a special function of the cheerleaders. They
led the crowds in cheers and songs at all in town and
out-of-town football and basketball games.
A highlight of their cheering season was the oppor-
tunity of going to the Clemson-Virginia Polytechnical
Institute game. The purpose of their trip was to march
in front of the Senior band around the Clemson Campus
and on to the football stadium, spelling out U-N-I-O-N
with their lettered sweaters, thus identifying this group
as the Union High band.
Spelling U-N-I-O-N, the cheerleaders set out across the football and gold pcm-poms which were given to them by interested
iield at half-time to greet Woodruff. Th '
ey carry their new black members of the Booster club.

GB? Teams To Furnish
Around 30 boys from the eighth grade were members
of the "B" football squad which was coached by Mr.
Ledford and Mr. Munn. The team played only two
games, both with Laurens, in each, Laurens was victori-
ous. In the first game played here on the school athletic
field, the score was 27-10. The second game, in Laurens,
ended in a 30-0 victory for Laurens. From daily practice,
plus the experience of playing an out-of-town team, the
"BD boys learned the basic fundamentals of football for
future benefit on the varsity squad.
Coach Ledford worked with the Boys' "B" basketball
team which was composed of 14 players. The team prac-
ticed every day from 6:00 to 8:00 p. rn. Their record for

ball team consisted of 13 members who practiced two or
three times a week. Although they lost games against
the faculty members and against Lockhart, and were
winners only once, their main purpose was accomplished:
to increase their skill and shooting ability for the coming
years. Those who showed special progress during the
year were Brenda Ochiltree, Lib Williford, Pat Cape,
and Gwen Simpson.

Golf And Tennis Players Enter Tournaments
With good weather conditions existing, golf practice
got off to an early start. The golfers had the advantage
of experience this year, for their youthful team had not
lost any 1959-60 members through graduation. Having
practiced daily for almost a month at the Union Country
club under the supervision of Mr. Al Gerring, golf pro,
the team started the season with hearts set on winning
the State tournament. Coach Gahagan was their faculty
sponsor. Their schedule included matches with Spartan-
burg, Greenville, Bock Hill, Gaffney, and Laurens.
With only one girl participating, ten students went out
for tennis this year. The team represented various age
groups, having members from the eighth grade through
the twelfth. Due to inadequacies of local courts, the
majority of matches were played out of town.
Practices under the direction of Coach Watts were
held at Veterans Memorial park, where home matches
were played. A tournament was held April 26, 27, and
28 at Furman University. Matches were played with
Greenwood, Greenville, Belton, and Charleston. This was
the first time a Union team had played Charleston.

Baseball Team Works
Out of 22 boys who went out for baseball, 16 were
chosen for the team. Under the coaching of Mr. Ledford,
practices began February 20 and continued each after-
noon after school at the Union County stadium. When
unfavorable weather prevented outdoor activity, practice
was held in the gym. There the boys carried on bunting
practice, sliding to the bases, and base running. Pitchers
and catchers also used this time to practice throwing.
The team played against Lancaster, Laurens, Clinton,
Winnsboro, Newberry, and Chester. Each of these teams
was an opponent twice during the season, once at the
Union stadium and once on the opponent's field.
At the end of the season there were several champion-
ship games. The GLEAM went to press before these were
played. The plan called for competition for champion-
ship between the winning team of the Upper State East-
ern Division Class AA conference and the winner of the
Upper State Western Division Class AA conference.
The Upper State champions then competed with the
Lower State winners to determine State championship.

Track Team orks With Eye On The State Meet
Bobby Hart tries his skill at pole vaulting, as he participates in
one of the many phases of track action.
Having returned to the school's athletic program last
year, track took on a completely new look this season.
Under the direction of a new coach, Mr. Munn, and
sporting new uniforms, 86 boys made up the team. They
had daily practices at the Union County stadium.
Because of the lack of a suitable track here, the team
participated in four track meets away from home. On
April 5 the boys traveled to Laurens to compete in their
first meet, and again on April 10 they participated in a
meet in Laurens. Two meets in Gaffney, on April 18 and
April 28, provided challenges for team members. Each
boy had entered the season with his eye on the Upper-
State track meet and even on the State track meet.
Running events entered by team members were the
100, 220, 440, and 880 yard dashes, the mile run, the low
and high hurdles, and the mile relay. Jumps included
the broad jump, the high jump, and the pole vault. Some
of the members perfected the shot put and the throwing
of the discus.

tudent Bod Mourns Death Cf Popular thlete
Dwightis basketball playing began early in his high school career,
as is shown by this 1958 picture of him in the seventh grade.
On the morning of March 1, news of the death by
guniire in his home of Dwight Baldwin brought sadness
to Union High. Just the evening before, many had
watched him play a spirited basketball game' against
Byrnes High in Chester. Now to: hear that he had un-
expectedly died, was to them almost unbelievable.
Dwight had been a valuable player on the football
team, and following the basketball season, was planning
to take part in the spring sports. School history, as
recorded in the GLEAM, shows that in past years he
played football, basketball, and baseball, was on the track
team, and held membership in the T. Sz I. club, the Block
U club, the Student council, and the chorus.
Dwight, fourth from left, posed in 1959' with a group of fellow
baseball players. His friendliness won him many friends and Well-

A senior boy at Union High today would probably be sur-
prised if, when calling on a young lady, he found her dressed
in a long, billowing dress, shawl, and a bonnet. He would
undoubtedly be self-conscious himself in a frock coat, tight
breeches, and ruffled shirt. The young people of the mid-1800's,
however, felt perfectly at home in this attire. Not only the dress,
but also the activities of young people have changed a great
deal in the last century.
Movies, televisions, and automobiles were unheard of then.
There were no hi-fi's, radios, or telephones. Parties were few
and far-between, however, parties often attracted guests from
great distances, and often house guests remained for extended
Girls spent their spare time making samplers, knitting, paint-
ing, or sewing projects. Boys filled leisure hours hunting, fishing,
and riding horses. Many summer afternoons found young people
picnicking. Picnics required much preparation, with full dinners,
table linens, and dishes to be packed. Sunday afternoons were
times for driving in the buggy with a "best beauu.
Today's young people live more accelerated lives, with football
games, sock hops, and informal get-togethers. With. automobiles
they can go where they wish more easily than their nineteenth-
century counterparts. Of course horses and buggies had one
advantage: a horse could drive himself on moonlit nights.
Although the dress and activities have changed, young people
are still basically the same. When girls gather, whether for knit-
ting or bridge, the talk still runs on the same level. When boys
meet, whether to race horses or hot-rods, the basic elements are

A new organization, known as the Band-Aide club,
came into being in the early part of 1961 for the purpose
of helping the band finance trips and to promote other
undertakings of this group. The club was founded pri-
marily by parents of the band members. Mr. Norris
Fowler became its first president. A membership fee of
85 per person or 356 for husband and wife together,
was announced in newspaper stories about this organi-

upper and lower grades participated in this year's Decla-

uled in April. Its purpose was to teach expression, to
produce individual interpretation, and to promote a stu-
dent,s coniidence in his public speaking. Mrs. Strother,
Miss Lybrand, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Williams, Mrs. White,
and Mrs. Nichols were the teachers that assisted students
participating in the contest.
Another contest held in the spring was the annual
"Spelling Bee" held in the library. The winner of this
local contest went to the county contest and likewise the
winner of the county went to the district, then the state,
and finally the national.
i'Boom 13," as was called the room to which students
tardy to classes or homeroom had to report after school,
was nearly full almost every afternoon after school.
Union High teachers were assigned certain weeks during
which they were in charge of staying with students after
school. Students stayed from immediately after school
to 3:00 p. m. each afternoon.
Sleet storms closed school on three days at the beginning of the
second semester, to the delight of this quintet and others. There
was never such fun as sledding on the slopes of Union.
An important spot at summer school is the water fountain Where
many get a "free" cold drink during the break at recess time.
Modern Business Contrasts
ith ountry Stores Of
Other Years Long Past
In a by gone era, the country store was the counterpart of a
modern day shopping center. The variety of merchandise avail-
able was practically unlimited. In one of these emporiums, one
could buy anything from calico to horehound candy, from shot-
gun shells to shoes. Farming families purchased from the store
everything they could not grow or make themselves. At harvest
time, they sometimes found themselves owing most of their crop
to the store.
Besides being shopping centers, these general stores also
served as informal meeting houses. Around the pot-bellied stove
and the cracker barrel, the men of the area gathered and
swapped tales, talked politics, and discussed the crops. There
also were many heated checker games, supervised by an appre-
ciative number of kibitzers.
The old general store was also the news center for the sur-
rounding farm families. It was the place to hear not only the
latest gossip, but also the recent national news. Often a traveller
would stop at the store just long enough to rest his horse and
pass on a bit of information about events in the nearest town.
Another role often played by the country store was that of
post-office. Being the center of activities, it was the logical place
for the U. S. mail to be collected and distributed.
The advent of the modern supermarket, streamlined depart-
ment store, eHicient drug store, and shopping center, combined
with the moving of families to the city and the improvement
of roads and other means of transportation, has brought about
a change, however. Due to these and other factors, the country
store, like the horse and buggy, has become a symbol of a
bygone but not forgotten day.

Ready to send GLEAM copy to the printer, adviser and staff
members declare this "the happiest day of the yearf, They are
Mrs. May, adviser, Frances James, copy editor, Huey Sprouse,
o - Editors Bid Farewell
With one year of experience behind us as co-editors
of the 1961 GLEAM, we have a real understanding of
what it means to be co-editors of a high-ranking year-
book. The job offers varied experience, excellent train-
ing, plenty of excitement, and unbounded pleasure, but
more than any of this, being co-editors presents a con-
tinuous challenge, a challenge to produce a yearbook
that will be prized and praised, loved and lauded by
fellow students who see their school and themselves fully
and truthfully portrayed in its pages.
This year brought us many delightful surprises that
made our job even more of a thrill than we had ever
dreamed of. A trip to Columbia, last spring, where we
saw the 1960 GLEAM being printed and where we feasted
at a marvelous luncheon as guests of our printers, The
R. L. Bryan Company, a most eventful October day at
the South Carolina Year Book Association convention, at
Lander college, and, as the supreme highlight of senior-
hood for four GLEAM staff members, a fabulous, ten-day
trip to New York City as delegates to the Columbia
Scholastic Press Association convention, are a few of the
outstanding KGLEAM extrasv that have starred our year.
And right here, we'd like to record our gratitude to
our Area Superintendent, Mr. Gordon May, who took
the group to New York, and all the way there and back
served as the most capable guide, the most helpful friend,
a group of students ever had.
Despite such memory-filled frolics, as have been
named, we and many other members of the GLEAM staff
spent hour upon hour in Room 7 working intently on the
1961 C-LEAM. During fourth period every day and after
school on many an afternoon, we worked hard hoping
to make this volume another Medalist and All-American.
From this, we gained both knowledge and experience,
and learned first-hand how to accept responsibility.
We know that neither we nor the entire staff could
have produced this yearbook without the co-operation
of many. In general, weid like to thank our teachers and
fellow students for encouragement and confidence, and
each subscriber and advertiser for the patronage that
senior associate editor, and jonnie Weatherford and Charlie jor-
dan, co-editors-in-chief. The work on the GLEAM had taken a
full year of studying, planning, and carrying out of many plans.
With incere Thanks
makes a yearbook financially possible. Then there are
specific ones to whom our heartfelt thanks go forth.
First, there is our adviser, Mrs. Eoline E. May. For
her devoted assistance, her untiring effort, her under-
standing of what to do in any and every situation, we
wish to express admiration and gratitude. Mrs. May has
meant more to us in every way than we can ever express.
We also wish to thank Miss Doris Gwinn, associate
business adviser, who did the bookkeeping and deposited
all money. Her efficiency made it easy to find facts and
figures at a moment's notice.
To Mr. Claude Smith, our photographer, weid like to
express sincere appreciation. His patience, his good
humor, and his willingness to come to school at any time
to take GLEAM pictures, we canit forget. Nor shall we
forget the kindness and the interest shown by our
printeris representative, Mr. Ed O,Cain. We have en-
joyed associations with him.
To Mr. Turner, Mr. Watts, and to "Miss Evan in the
office, for making announcements and furnishing us
necessary information, we are most grateful, and to Mrs.
Katherine Gregory, Union area bookkeeper, for her part
in handling GLEAM business, goes our appreciation.
What would we have done without the group that
aworked like Trojansv every day during fourth period in
Room 7 to see that the GLEAM was completed before the
deadline! Surely they deserve special recognition. And
finally, to the whole GLEAM staff, for selling, for writing,
for typing, for attending meetings, for supporting every
GLEAM interest to the fullest, we give heartiest thanks.
It is with a feeling of sadness and joy combined, that
we present this, the 1961 GLEAM, to you, the readers. We
hope that now and forever it will mean as much to you
as it has, does and always will mean to us.
