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.

'cRose Hill," home of Secession Governor William T.

On the portico are Stanley Adams, Linda O,Shie1ds, Kay Hicks, and Annette Smith. They have just finished a tour of this much- publicized mansion.

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 daughters. 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 home here. Balloon Lands ln Pea Ridge Section Cf ount 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- Marking the site where Thaddeus Lowe, balloonist, landed in 1861 in the Pea Ridge section of the County is an explanatory granite slab, which seems interesting to Pat, Erma Lee, jean, Willard, and loonist was giving the masonic sign for help, was violence 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.

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.

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. . 1 . A Wg ic, ' xg .

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 to Watch television. 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 Union area.

Personnel All Enjo Hobbies And Taking Trips Working with flowers was shown to be the most popu- lar pastime of Union area personnel, from a questionnaire circulated among them by the GLEAM. Other interests and activities enjoyed by the secretaries and office work- ers, included testing new recipes, playing bridge, sewing, working needlepoint, working in the yard, and making short trips. Trips of special note were taken by Mrs. Gladys Gamer who went to New Orleans, Louisiana, and to Houston, Texas, and by Mrs. Elizabeth Peake who attended the American School Food Service Associational convention in Washington, D.

I' Teachers and promoters of education in Union and the Coun 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 home same 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- send while was head of the boys, academy "before the warv, a professor from "Up Northv, L. W. Curtis, was the first teacher of the Female academy. 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- penses of the entire year inthe English department will be 8110, in the Classical, S1207 All the modern languages of Europe were to be taught without extra charge.

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. :ix Q' Ni n .

A Chip checks, points out the mistakes, and explains the correct procedure, to Beverly and Ralph who are performing a water 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- ectv for the Regional Science fair held at the Spartanburg Memorial auditorium and sponsored by Wolford College.

Here are Miss Kelly, SFOHSOT, Kathy Dill, Thomasene 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 future business.

May with two elementary classes, one in Central and one in Mon- arch school. This year the old Ottaray school building came into use for special education alone, with Mrs. Rutha justice as principal and Mrs. Mildred Kirby and Mrs. Nellie Jo Knox as teachers. Union High acquired a "special edv class of its own as members of the group, advanced in maturity and ability, became ready for high school life.

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. , - VL 5 fu! 1:85 4 nk ,k Q M if if u, K vb . 'zfiwr 1 Z ' if it ly .

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. Excitement reigns as Mr. Reid, company representative, measures seniors for their class rings.

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 their representatives. 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 college. 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, were made. Seniors showed special interest in the University of South Carolina Bobby, Sandy, fstandingl Joyce, Gene, Iudy, Mulloy, Harriet, and on College Day. This group includes Cseatedb Margaret, Jeanette, Becky. They are trying to make a very important decision. 4 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.

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.

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 balloting. ' 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 student center. 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.

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 period. 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.

J .1 1 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 suits. 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, "Hawaiian paradise!" 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 side table. 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 "good nightsf, High School are Vera, Walker, Ann, Boyd, Johnny, Brenda, Ferol, Richard, and Hubert.

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, Union Highf, 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. J 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 be their last assembly before Commencement. They are Frances, hearts are true ........ we will sing to youf' I 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 Baccalaureate Sermon 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?

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 Turner. 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 Graduation exercises. SENIOR CLASS OFFICEFS AND SPONSOR. Sandy Hughes, president, Mrs. Lamb, sponsor, Ann Spears, secretary, and Frances Lawson, treasurer are consulting the calendar regarding special The sponsor, working along with the other four teach- 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 any problem they had concerning their high school life. dates in the Senior year. They are wondering if a Ring ceremoney might be included. John Cochran, vice-president, was absent be- cause of a football injury, when the picture was taken. JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS AND SPONSOR. Kathleen Berry, president, Miss Beaty, sponsor, joe Lawson, vice-president, Jean Hyder, secretary, and Paul Whitener, treasurer-are admiring the luniors Take Tests In 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 quotient. 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 entire nation. 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. all To Determine 1. Two juniors were student body oflicers. They filled the offices of secretary and treasurer. Also two of the juniors were cheerleaders, and a greater part of the "Av football team and the first string boys' basketball team consisted of juniors. 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 test. The average age of a freshman was 14 years, the age at which they were legally able to obtain an automobile driveris license. 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, Q?

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. tix V fe -, . .Z x-'ffae Q N -4-an W' as e-gi X if uf E S' ?f sk so, -0 :- 1' 'KKQPN , A' xt tg 'L' Z. 4 Playing a concert on the audi- ' torium stage, under the baton of Mr. Smith, the band enter- ' tains with a variety of numbers some of which serve as accom- paniment to carols.

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.

Future Teachers Begin Year ith New Sponsor 0 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 a pin. 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. 1 Top: Betsy Anderson, Don Armstrong, Peter Berry, Beverly Cain, Ann Colson, Janice Corley, Annette Corn, Patty Dawkins, Hettie Fowler.

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 Journalists. 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 cloth that covered the table around which the ceremonies were held.

Honor ociety Sends Delegates To onvention Seventeen girls and one boy in the junior class were inducted into the National Honor Society on' Thursday, March 1. These new members were Becky Strahley, Carolyn Hembree, Beverly Cain, Kathleen Berry, Jane Pitts, Hettie Fowler, Linda Springs, Gene Corner, Jean Hyder, Jackie Weatherford, Gayle Wilburn, Betsy Ander- son, Annette Smith, Gayle McGowan, Erma Lee Langley, Judy Guinn, Rosie Godshall, and Ralph Phillips. Each was presented a pin and ribbons of gold and blue, the society,s colors. Membership was limited to students who were willing to be of service, who had a scholastic average of 90 or above, who were ot high character, and who showed leadership ability. 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 elected, and the delegates from each school were honored with a banquet and a dance.

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, The 1960 Cleam Rates Grace Jordan, business manager, Anna Lybrand, advertising man- ager, and jane Pitts, associate circulation manager, look and listen as Mrs. May, adviser, outlines the features of the 1961 GLEAM.

A rating of All-American 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. 351 awwfmwwwmw- Said' ' R W.,-:lik . . V ' - -"' Ja' ' ' +i'?::, ,.

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 out-of-state schools. Susan Hope is placing the award in the showcase that the H13-Life staff received from the Quill and Scroll. Standing by admiring it are Mrs. Gregory, Jean Hyder, Donna Armstrong, Betsy Anderson.

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.

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 voice control. "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. YOUNG STENOCS CLUB.

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 football games, Aliceis Blue Gown, a comedy in one act, centered around Patty CDoris Iohnsonl, who was the little sister of Alice Cjudy Manessl.

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 life. "Amo, Amas, amatv was often heard from struggling first-year Latin students learning to conjugate verbs. Second-year students reviewed the Roman way of life during the Augustan Age through the eyes of two fic- titious Roman boys. The story was in Latin and had to be translated into English.

Sponsors pointed out that there are many material beneiits of membership in the National Beta club. A few of them are: certificate of membership, membership card, an individual subscription to monthly copies of the Beta C lub Journal while in high school, and Beta club stickers.

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, To indicate further the time spent and the achieve- ments attained, more symbols were used.

The football team received theirs at a football banquet and the other athletes were given theirs one morning before the school day started.

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 people. 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 others. 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. ll Psychology Clubs Discuss Optical Illusions FOURTH PERIOD PSYCHOLOGY CLUB.

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.

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 current undertakings.

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.

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 Operation of the slide rule fascinates Myra and Janice as Sandy, fresh from a summer's science honor course, shows it to them. 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. Gail Cseatedl does the figuring and Gary offers help in the simpli- fication of the quadratic radicals while Sammie looks wisely on.

Bandsmen Cet Individual 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 campaign. 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 band director. 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. JUNIOR BAND.

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.

Clee Club Cets Mrs. Vaughan As New Director Second semester brought a change to the chorus as Mrs. Charles Vaughan took Mr. Smithis position as di- rector. The chorus met during first period in the band room on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. After winter sports were over Mrs. Vaughan, with the help of Mr. Smith, organized a night class. This class was for the benefit of students whose schedules would not allow them to take chorus during the regular school hours. They met on Tuesday nights with the regular chorus class. A sextet was selected from this group, and these girls entertained at the annual Teacheris banquet in February. Later, the combined classes presented a program of Easter music in assembly, and brought their season to a close with their annual spring concert. Earlier, in the first semester, the chorus sang in assembly, appeared in Unionis Christmas parade, and also sang on the program at Rose Hill on which this old mansion and its grounds were dedicated as a State park.

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. 5 I, thu , .

Yellow Iackets Use Forceful Football Tactics "Beady- - -Hutf' were the signals barked out by Union Highls quarterback which sent the big eleven into fast action. 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. VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM.

Cheerleaders Start Season With Peppy Son s "How-da-ya-like-ya carrots?" yells head cheerleader Carolyn Johns, backed by Charlie Jordan, Barbara Richardson, Elaine Parks, Jackie Weatherford, and Dickie Hester, Union High's elected cheerleaders. "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 games. 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.

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 BOYS MBU BASKETBALL TEAM.

Sonny Blackwood and Jerry Henderson led the team with their shooting and defense playing. Coached by Mrs. Peggy Crocker, the Girls, "Bn basket- 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. GIRLS "BM BASKETBALL TEAM.

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.

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. Out At ounty Stadium Billy makes a put-out and relays the ball to Hrst base as Jerry slides into second. Donald initiated the play by catching the ground ball. This was at practice at the Union County stadium. BASEBALL TEAM. Bottom: Kenneth Royster, Donald Comer.

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. TRACK TEAM.

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- wishers. DWIGHT BALDWIN: 1942-1961 Lettered in football, basketball, and track 3 5 Q Q gig' ..

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 visits. 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 the same.

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- zation, encouraging everyone throughout the County to give material as well as moral support to Union Highis band. Spring brought with it many "iirsts.', The H i-Life sent five representatives from the new 1961-62 staff to Wash- ington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia to attend the convention of the Southern Scholastic Press association. Those attending were Betsy Anderson, editor- in-chief, Jackie Weatherford and Jean Hyder, associate editors, Sara Sinclair, managing editor, and Mrs. Gregory, the adviser. Snow and ice storms caused a loss of several school days, but the state required that only two of these be made up. 180 days are required of each school in South Carolina, but because of snow, only 178 days had to be taught this year. March 17 was a holiday. On that day the annual meet- Holidays From School annual Winter ball, held the night after Christmas at the Veterans Memorial park. This was a highlight of the long-awaited holidays. ing of the South Carolina Education Association was held in Columbia. Mr. Gordon May, Union Area Super- intendent was a member of the Executive board of this State-Wide organization. Spring also brought the declamation contest. Both upper and lower grades participated in this year's Decla- mation and Oral Interpretation fray, which was sched- 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. 1 an Q . Q uf 31 A 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. .Egg X we 931' Z' Rising S Q? ,ZZ if it 3 5 f F ,r fi -4, -ss X ... .V ..

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.
