'Fiit-y years in -edutaticn seems like a very long time, yet, to some it was
only yesterfay. During that length oi' time, many people have enrolled in
the schools of Cass Towiisliip, 'and likewise, many have departed from the
sehool either to enter laigzlxer fields of education or to find a place in lif6's
work. Besides 'the ever changing enrollment, time has wrought many
ehanieg in building structure and the equipment, ln 1900 the entire enroll-
ment of both elementary and secondary pupils in Dugger We-retaken care
f-if at Ceniral, and a building at Cass aeeomodated a like group. Being un-
alle to meet the state requirements for secondary educationwvitli this ar-
1'21l1Q'6IIl6I1t, a township building was erected in 1921 for the high school
yu, ils and it was dedicated as Union. Here the high school students of the
onli e township received instruction. This was decided improvement over
tlze old system and the enrollment continued to increase until Union was
rated at the largest township high school in the state of Indiana.
The patrons and executives, eager to compete with all other schools,
added' new equipment each year. Some of the additions that were most
noticeable were the establishment of a bus system for the transportation of
the rural pupils, a locker system which was to provide place for the storage
oi' hooks. 1TiUfi!i!10!'f' and tools for the shop, a job press and other equipment
that made possible a broader course in journalism, a new gymnasium, a
cafeteria, Venitian blinds for the library and study hall, laundery facilities
for the towels and athletic goods, ligzhts for the football fi-eld and other im-

THE BUILDWG FOR ALL
To as nion
Erected in '21, it was
As new ashnew could be,
But in those ye-ars, it had no thought
Of people like you and me.
The following years were crowded,
With seniors and others too,
Many faces we'd recognize
As memory's pages are turned thro'.
Then when the famous fear of '38,
Cam-e rolling into view,
We started our first year in school,
With loving thoughts of HU".
On and on our journey went,
Till our first year We spent,
Inside our dear old Union,
So on and on we Went.
Now after four glad happy years, V
We only want to say,
"You'll live Within our memories,
Tho' we may journey far away."

CARENCE XV. STE.GE.MOLfiER-Mir. Stegemoller wasn't only the principal
of our sohool, which within itself was quite a task, but he taught an ad-
vanced class in algebra and sat in for other teachers who had to be absent
from their classes. He came in contact with nearly every student and gave
each his autograph on permits and was ready with advice to all who asked.
GERALD USREY-Once a student at Union,'has. successfully guided us
along the road of progress for the past three years. Now as our trustee he
was active in anything which was for the .benefit of Union and was always
around to lend sa helping hand where needed. We thank him for his untiring
interest and energy.
DOROTHY DUGGER-Known for her excellent work with chorus groups
of the Whole township, Miss Dugger was placed before the school as an
example of, "Success by 'hard work." For special oceggisions in school,
several felt free to call on her for a short program and they found her al-
ways prepared. She took choruses to the Spring County Festival at Sullivan,
tothe District Festival at Terre Haute, and prepared a special group to
.participate in the All State Festival at Indianapolis. She gained variety Of
choral work bp the -formation of a girls' trio, a girls' triple trio, and a
boys' quartet. l
JAMES RlNGER--Mr. Ringer was probably the most wmely known teacher
in lass Township -for he comes in contact with studeiilg from grades one
to twelve. At Union he taught English and literature but at Cass and Cen-
tral lie was principal of our two grade schools.
MATfl'llA SVVEFNE3'--'iflverv girl should know how to cook and sew" is
an old belief to those who find it true, Mrs. Sweeney was a faithful instruc-
tor. Cooking and sewing wasn't enough, however for she insisted that
each girl make th-e most of conditions for herself. She graduated from
lndiana Teacher's College and has been at Union two years. Mrs. Sweeney
was co-sponsor to the junior class and director of 4-H work for girls.

ness manager of athletics.

,nop rains and by giving ne-eded information.
ESHMAEL OSBORNE-This was not Mr. Oshorne's first year with us, but
it was his firsti one for a few years and his name has certainly become proml-
ent through his record with his basketball team. This was the first time

the second year of a second term at Union, when he received an offer of
advancement in other fields that could not be denied so he resigned at the

Senior Class History
Aiier twelve long years of sailing, the 1950 Student Ship has let down its
:nnlor for -,he last time and s-ent the crew ashore to find places in other
vraflzs of life. This faithful old ship has been carrying the same crew for
twelve years losing some and gaining some at the different ports on the Way
to is destination, Commencement Port. For many years its crew has been
working hard, striving' to sail ahead Where final anchor could be dropped.,
At Freshmen Port sixty came on board, and we had a very successful year
with Rex Monroe acting as the captain of our ship. After hours of duty
:anne of our members took active part in games, others became members of
erggnii ations, and a few had a desire for high rating. S
At the Sophomore Port we took on other supplies, rec-eived advanced sail-
ing orders and a few went ashore, thus, leaving fifty-one on our ship. This
was our second year in the sea of secondary education and We were becom-
ing accustomed to sailing orders. This year Marilyn Phillips came from the
crew and took her place at the helm where she acted as captain of our boat
and crew. '
ln 1343 we dropped anchor at our Junior Port for additional orders and
added one new member to our crew and three from our regular crew took
get-inanent shore leav-0. This time the crew sent Danny Olson to the helm
Zo become captain of our ship. At the end of this year, when we were
about ready to drop anchor for rest and new orders we gave a reception
for the crew sailing the ship just ahead of us, the seniors. It was also this
year we presented a play by our crew "Spring Feverv in which Bob Carr and
Rosa'-e Padgett played the leading parts.
Cn August 28 the ship set sail again this time for their last trip. This
has been a very successful year wiih.Tom Sevier acting as our final captain.
This year the class has accomplished many things, some of which were diffi-
inlt but we had our fun along- with our work. Some will long remember
the time we quickly went ashore, employed tractors to take us far inland To
Bill Kel1y's farm where we had a delightful Weiner roast.
There are other social ,-events which we will never forget, one of these was
our Christmas Party. sThe crew .also presented another play this year en-
titled, 4'The Singing' Ghost". f
As we go ashore ,we wish to say that in spite of some of the YOHSCII 1113668
ard hard times encountered, on the high seas of education, we have had
some wonderful times and wish the best of luck to those now sailing the
s-ea-is direct-ly behind and to all those who will venture this journey in

Senior Roll Call
FREDDY JENVELL ALSMAN, commonly known around school as "Fred",
was the quiet person who never said much, but did his work well. He took
up shop as his major and held his place among the boys in shop class. Fred
was one of the llil1'--'iV01'klllg' shop boys who was seen last fall working to
1 repaz-e the football 'field for another season. Although his interest was in
shop he gave enough time in other things to keep good grades. With all of
these factors Fred took part in tht Hi-Y Club.
BRUCE LEE ALUMBAUGH, known as "Bruce"' to his friends, is another
er-.on who never had much to say. lie too. along with Fred, held his place
in shop class and proved himself to be a good student among his classmates.
He was elected by them' as Chaplain of t-he boy's Hi-Y Club. Bruce wore the
colors for Union in the football season and held the position of lett guard on
the squad. One of the things that Bruce did many times throughout the
school year was to operate the moving picture projector. This provides
further education for the students of Union.
CYNTHIA ELLEN ANDERSON, responded to the name of "Tiny" because
she was just as the name states. Being a very lively girl, she was always
ready to try something new and different. On the athletic side of her life
at school she was good in sports and was an active member of the Girls'
Athletic Club. Accepting the challenge of the more serious side of school life,
she became a member of the Y-Teen Club and took part in their activities.
She made her major in commerce and worked on the "St-atic".
DELORIS JOAN BLEVENS, called "Sug", was a quiet girl who was always
1-eady to express herself whenever called upon to do so. Being interested in
Science, she worked in a. doctor 's office after school and gained much tha.t
she applied in regular science classes. Being scientifically minded she spent
most of her time in studying this field of work, but kept up with her other
studies as well and was considered an HA" student. Deloris was president
of the Beta Club and was also elected by the seniors to he secretary of the
class In this she did a very nice job throughout the whole Year.
DOROTHY BONHAM, so called around school as "Dorothy Bon Bon", is
the tall lanky girl who centered her interest on the sport lights of Union.
She was unable to climb the ladder far enough to become a member of the
Girls' Athhletic Club, so she was satisfied and cont-ented to boost the boys in
their sports and did a very good job of it. Besides sports she also was in-
terested in the many other activhies of lfnion. Sh-e made Home Economics
RUTH BERNICE BJFRDERS, "Ruthie", a very small person decided to give
her time and energy to the sports activities of Union. She tri-ed out for
cheer leader and was so elected by the student body last fall. The saying
that "dynamite comes in small packages" is believed to be true when Ruth
begins to put forth her utmost to lead cheers. Ruth picked as her major.
the subject of Home Economies, which she tried to keep up tl1I'OU8'h0l1'r 'Ellie
year as she faithfully followed the Bulldogs through two seasons of sports.

Senior Class Poem
We are ready, the Senior class,
VVe'll soon be on our way,
Sailing on the sea of life
XVe spent such a short time in this bay.
Our hearts are sadg yet filled with glee,
Xlie think of deeds of days gone by
As we put on the tossing sea
XVe'll View our memories with a sigh.
Time has passed, we have our release
Oh! what a time we did enjoy
Now we begin our serious work,
Getting ready for that life-long convoy.
Carefree days have gone at last.,
Some will cling, while others rise,
And some may fall along the way,
Give credit where due, would be wise.
As we briskly sail on that rising tide,
At times welll shout, "Destination nearl'
Each classmate will cling to his work vi ith pride
Riding in calm waters, without fear.

As we let our mind go straying
We remember years gone by
Those we've'spent at dear old Union
Underneath a clear blue sky.
We begin to think of next year
When we will seniors be-
Then we will have to say our farewell
And take our walys from thee.
We now Juniors, ever earnest
Will pursue our learning still
We will work and be your seniors
Then we'll journey o'er the rill
So we say farewell, till next year
In the autumn we shall see all
All the sunny spreading campus
And We'll live again with thee.

Eighth Grade History
'this is our second year at Union High School and we have had a verv suc-
1-essful year. There are sixty-five in our class, a few more than we had last
'This year our class has worked very hard, but we have had a lot of fun too.
We have participated in many things such as junior high dramatics and the
hand- lVe have enjoyed this year more because we have become more ac-
nnnintefl with the school and its activities.
Looking forward to next year, when we can become freshmen and enter
into our high school life, has kept us in the line of progress.
Seventh Grade His ory
On August 25, 1949 we came to Union it friglitened but happy group. There
were lifty-two of us altogether. 'Some came from Cass, some from Central
and a few from schools out of the township.
Our first few days at Union were filled with adventure and excitement.
There were so many things different from our grade school. 'Fhere were
ninnjv more students and teachers, During' our first few weeks, we found the
five minute hells the most. confusing thing, but the longer we were here the
better we liked Union.
Vfe are looking forward to next year and the years to eoine hoping they
will be ns successful and as interesting as our first year at Union!

Varsity Footba l T
L' With a wonderful season of football behind them and a promising one
before them, the Union Bulldog squad tore into the season of '49 with a
gziiiin determination to win. "Gabe" Takats, who had coached Union's foot--
hall team for the past three years, did a good job for the boys only lost
one game of the '49 season and that was to Brazil to whof they lost their

that of the homecoming. The night of Olctober 7, was selected for this event
and on this night the "Bulldogs" were to meet Jasonville on the lfme grid-A
By the vote of the entire student body of Union we elected our queen, Ruth
Pratt. As her attendants, two girls were selected from each class. They
were as follows: seniors, Charlotte Keene and Marilyn Griffith, juniorsg
Patty Olson and Barbara Arnold, sophomores, Norma Mitchell and Jean
Bland, freshmen, Marlene Olson and Norma Pope.
The night was beautiful and after leading a parade through town and.
around the football field, the queen, lovely in her white formal, was crowned
before the largest crowd ever to at-tend a football game at Union.
Thus, after her crowning, the queen, sitting on her throne, reigned over'
the entire game. A
1 HOMECOMING PARTY
Never forgetting that festivities are needed to end a perfect evening,
the senior class gave a homecoming party in honor of their queen. -
Since the Bulldogs also dropped the "Yellow Jackets" for a 34 to 7
victory this added more spirit than before to the festival minded "Union-
The party was for everyone and much entertainment was provided.
This affair, like several of those that have become past history, will
ling er in the memories of manyz.

One of the gayest affairs staged at Union a.t the beginning of school wasa
JUNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL
The ranks of Varsity Bulldogs must ever have good materials from
which to build and repair the teams. This material must be trained and
directed early in fundamentals in order to be ready for the grinding routine
needed to polish the varsity players. This year there was 'a good amouwnt of
material that began fundamental training in the seventh and eighth grade.
Boys from these classes were under the direction of Mr. Irons. They played
a total of thirteen games during their seasong won seven and lost six. At
the close of the season they participated in the county invitational tourna-
ment and Worked their Way to the finals. Here they were barely nosed out by
the young Farmersburg Plowboys.
A large number of boys trained for the "B" team basketball group
during the past, season. Of these boys some became efficient enough before
the season closed to receive advancement to the varsity group, while some
will have to Wait 'another year for this advancement. Although the number
of games won did not seem like a very favorable record for the second team
netters, there is evidence that some of these boys will make a better show-
ing with a little more time and training.
One of the features of the basketball program for the past year was
the game in which the 5th and 6th grades of .Cass played the 5th and 6th
of Central. In this meet the young basketeers from Cass proved superior
Perhaps in the future this young material for future teams can be given a
little in the gym.
With 'an additional two weeks in the regular school term, Union had
time to engage in several more track meets this year. Union had entries
in five different meets and scored comparatively high on all five occa-
sions. "Red" Brewer, who had claimed notoriety on the gridiron and on
the hardwood also made Black and Gold famous on the track. Union was
able to train boys for the 100 yd. dash, the 220 yd. dash, the 440 yd. dash,
the lg mile relay, the mile relay, the shot put, and the broad jump.
......., .. Q.. ng.. , -. --
Our varsity this year has set a high standard to which we will have
to gauge our speed in coming years.
Starting the year the able coaching of Ishmeal Osborne they were
guided to many victories which brought glory to Union.
They won fourteen games out of the total twenty-four playedg eighteen
of these games being scheduled and six being tourney games.
Cine of the greatest thrills of the Varsity season came when the boys
marched through the Valley prelims defeating Carlisle in the finals and
reserved a place in the Valley finals at Terre Haute. Here theywere de-
feated in their first game by Wiley. This was a blow to the Bulldogs and
Coach Cslgornejbut they accepted it gracefully and again tried to stand by
the standards they had set at the beginning of the year. I
One of the greatest changes that came to the athletic team this year
was the fact that Union was voted to become a member of the Western
Indiana Conference. This advancement together with their record for
the past year places the varsity and their coach in line for congratulations.
Through their Work and co-operation they have shown us what can be
done by hard Work.
The varsity this year will lose only three members by graduation,
Carr, Hiatt, and Bolmert. This will leave a good nucleus around which to
build a team for 1950-51 Q

enior Play t
On Friday, March 4, at 8:00 P. M., the Senior Class presented "The Sing-
ing Ghost" a three act mystery play. The setting took place in the living
mont cf Drake's sununer cottage. The plot revolved around the finding of
Martha Drake's murderer. Norma Drake, the daughter of the murder-ed
Martha Drake, invited all the guests up tothe cottage for th-e weekend who
ind le'n present at the time of,her motherys murder. Norma suspected
everyone, from the colored maid, Ruby, to her boy friend, Kenneth Moore.
As the story went on, things became more complicated with each guest
suspecting each ot-her. With the appearance of Martha Drake's ghost,
things began happening fast until finally the mystery was solved, when the
' fo' t fnd lfer guests were surprised to learn that the murderer was Madam
Wilma Grunn, Martha Drake's li-est friend, as the audience Was.
The play itself proved to be one of the many successful plays ever pre-
:enied at Union.

D Junior Play
Not to be outdone by the dramatic ability of the Senior Class, the
juniors went into a lzuddle in the make-up room and came out behind the
footlights, April 21, to demonstrate their dramatic powers. They presented
"The Cannibal Queen," a three act farce-comedy by Robert St. Clair. To
say that the play was acclaimed 'a success would be placing it in very mild
terms. It was indeed a much different play from any thing that had been
attempted in the past years. The scene took place in a hotel of a small town
where the newspaper editor was having some difficulty finding news and
pleasing the owner of the paper. The fiancee of the editor who wanted a
part in the Spring Festival was also having her troubles. Their big chance
came when they learned that Prof. Kent was expecting his nephew to
bring home a real Cannibal Queen. The plot thickened when the nephew
failed to bring the queen and they plan to use Brenda, the fiancee to imi-
tate afqueen. Pandemonium broke loose when a Cannibal really did show
up at the hotel looking for the nephew whom she wanted for her seventh
husband. With a great deal of twisting and planning, everything finally
ended to the satisfaction of all involved.

Junior High Dramatics
The Draniatics Club of Junior High, under the capable direction of
Miss Pirtle, does not have a long history extending into the past fifty
years to boast of Q but does have a record of high class achievements.
This organization being two years old began last year with only
thirty-four members and this year has grown to forty-nine answering roll
call. This year the members appeared before the student body in two pro-
ductions, "A Day With George Washington," and "Waiting for the Train."
At these performances they proved themselves good troopers and worthy
of being rated high in the art of dramatics.
They closed the season wth a short planned educational tour. They
went to Vincennes where they visited historical places of importance in
Indiana history such as Old Cathedral, site of home of Alice of Old Vin-
cennes, the Territorial House, Lincoln and Clark Memorials and the Harri-
Some of those students will be well prepared to step into the Work of
advanced clramatcis in high school in future years.

Choral work at llnion has always received a prominent place in the ranks
of work, and motto "music for everyone and everyone for music" certainly
has been well observedg yet, it has been generallyagreed that the year closing
the first half of the century has been-by far the most outstanding in choral
work. The personel for the different groups for the year was approximately
fifty-five in mixed chorus, thirty in boys' chorus, and seventy in girls'
chorus. Since only fifteen of these w-ere seniors, the peak of training for
this group probably has not reached its heigth. Besides the three groups
mentioned. there were several special groups created to participate in the
many programs throughout the year. Some of these special groups were
the boys' quartette-'The Unionaires', the Triple Trio, and The Snapperettes.
Three events that were of special added importance besides the full calen-
dar of the year's program Were: the invitation to sing before the conduction
class at Indiana University. The privilege of a senior member to have a
special audition with Mr. Krueger of Indiana University and try for a
scholarship in music. and th-e four complimentary tickets sent to the choral
department. These tickets made possible for four students, Joan Schofield,
Barbara Robson. Ruth Pratt, and Jerry Lisher to hear Lohengrin presented
by the Metropolitan Opera. The regular calendar of appearances included
A Minis'-rel Performance backed by the Lion's Club V
An Armistice Day Program
A Thanksgiving Program -J
Twenty -two participants in the State Choral Sing
A 'Good Friday Program '
Participation in the District Music Festival
Participation in the County Muse Festival
The Spring Qhpral Concert
Numbers on-the Commencement and Baccalaureate Programs
Mr, Krueger was the director at the District Meeting and Mr. Himebaugh
at the County.
Besides the regular higgh school groups, thr-ee is the junior high school
choral group. Their main appearance for the year was in the Christmas
Spring' Concert ciycn by the elementary grades May 10. Members of this
Program giv-cn for tlrc general assembly just before vacation and in the
group train and eagerly look forward to the time when they may take part
in' the high school choral work. A

On a clear day, if the window in' your classroom happened to be open dur-
ing the four.l1 period you may have heard the strains of music issuing from
the gymnasium and floating through the air to you. This was our high
school band having its daily practice.
linion nas had a band for almost twenty years, but the band this year
certainly has been one of the most outstanding. Each and every member
of the band as well as the in-embers om other organizations will agree that
the band this year had been an active and a year well rounded with work
that brought much distinction to Union. Proudly bedecked in their new uni-
forms, led by their attractive majorettes, Betty Ranard, Shirley Neilson, and
Rosalie radgett, the band has marched on to the football field and the bas-
ketball -loor. At such times they entertained the fans with quick stepping
marches, novelty tunes, and sometimes a comical stunt. On several occasions
the band accompanied the home team on trips to other schools. The ball
games and pap sessions were not the only times that the band made their
appearance, however, for they gave concerts, took part in the festival, en-
.-cred, contests, and played for special programs such as commencement,
Bagcalaureate, and the May Day Program. Two of these that will be remem-
bered by most of the students were the Festival held at Sullivan in April.
This year graduation will claim only six regular members of the band and
one of the twirlers.
The twenty-seven piece ba11d consists of five cornets, two trombon-es, two
baritones, two altos, one bass, nine clarinets, two saxophones, o11e snare drum,
cne bass drum. cymbals, and bells produced a record of which any school
should be proud. The Band Booster's Club has been behind the band all the
Way and had helped to make the seemingly impossible things come true.
lt was through their efforts that the 116W uniforms were bought and they
also made possible the addition of two new instruments this year, a snare
drum and an ali-o horn. Mr. Clayton, the instructor, has been with the band
two years now and has given untiring efforts to make this organized group
just what it had to be for top rating.
Besides the recognized calendar of events for the year, several members of
the band had c-omplimntary tickets to the Spring Concert of the Indiana
liniv-ersi.y Band at Bloomington.
Twe records that must be placed hifrh on the calendar of musical success
was the awards earned by the twirlers. Rosalie Padgett and Shirley Neilson.
These two twirlers were taken to l-he District Cont-est at Bloomington where
they took honors. Rosalie made a first place and Shirley made a second
place. Continuing in the same contest Rosalie competed in the State Finals
held at Terre Haute and again won a first place. Rosalie is a senior and
Shirley is a freshman.

Besides the regular high school band, Cass Township this year M
Lack-cd and elementary or beginiierisband. This group composed of approxi-
mately thirty-five members followed the pace of hard work oct for them
by the advanced band. Mr. Clayton who seemed to coin time to train these
students, had them playing in easy concert style and they were able to pre-
sent a part of the band concert in the spring activities. Som-e of the mem-
bers of this band will be ready to step into place and fill the ranks left va-
cant by graduation of the senior members of the advanced band. The mem-
bers of this band range from the fourth grade ofthe elementary school up
through the eighth grade. Plans are under where by another begin-

GIRLS' ATHLETIC CLUB
Girls' participation in athletics at Union is sponsored and promoed by the
Girls' Athletic Club. When the club was first organized in 1928, it had
thirteen charter lll0lY?l36I'S and Mrs. Corner was the sponsor. At the time the
m-embers were affliated with the National Athletic Association for Women.
Various steps of progress have been madeby the club during its twenty
years of existance and the girls have sponsored sev-eral worth while projects.
This year, C. A. C. boasts of having one of the largest enrollments among
the organized groups. Throughout the year the girls have sponsored train-
ing classes in volleyball. basketball, softball, deck tennis, and a few other
minor sports. In this way girls earn points making them eligible to try for
membership. The decision of the girls to become reinstated this year with
the National Assiciation was a step of notable advancement.
Besides their regular plan of a game for every girl, the members took part
in helping with the concession stand at the athletic games and tried to
foster good sportsmanship at all times in the school activities. s
Officers for the year were Una Robinson, Evelyn Burris, Cynthia Ander-
son. The sponsor, Miss Shepherd, has had special training in athletics for
girls and has been a most capable and inspiring leader for the girls during
the past two years.
The girls of this group who had earned their points during their number
of years in the club were presented with their letter award and several of
the bought sweaters on which to display the letter.

History of Cass
For several years Cass had two buildings. One was a two story brick
building, the other was a one story frame building.
Originally Cass had a high school as well as an elementary school. In
1921, a new building was erected which replaced the two previous buildings.
For about ten years all eight grades and high school were taught in the
new building. It contained four large rooms with adjoining cloak rooms
and a full sized basement. This building is still in use as an elementary
In 1921, Union High was completed therefore only eight egmentary grades
remained at Cass. Lat-er, with the increased enrollment due to the consoli-
dation of schools, it became necessary to transfer the seventh tnd eighth
grades to Union High School. -
During these years, Cass has had efficient teachers, who have worked
toward the advancement of our schools. Their efforts have been directed.
toward creating and maintaining the ideals which make the highest type of
At the present time 140 pupils attend Cass School under the supervision
of four teachers: Mr. Gore, Mrs. Carter, Mrs. Lucille Breck, and Mrs.
Dorothy Elmore. This enrollment may seem small but there is no such thing
as a small school. The success of a school is no more affected by the size
of its enrollment than the greatness of an individual is measured by his
Again this year, as in the past four years, a school bus transports our
children to and foom the Union High School Cafeteria each day. About
seventy percent of our enrollment participate in this noon day m-eal. This
has be-en made possible through the cooperation of our school officials.
Equipment has been added to our play ground. At present we have a
slide, merry-go-round, swings, and basketball goals.
As we look at the past, we are pleased with the progress we see. As we
look into the future. we only hope to continue this progressiveness and be
good representatives of a good school.

Central history dates back to the beginning of the town itself. lVl1en the
town was about twenty years old, the first school building- in the present sito
--as erected., Prior to this time schools were located at Samaria, east of
Dugger and at Combs southwest of town.
The first room ot Central, which was a three room structure, was destroyed
by fir-e in 1900. At the beginning' of the century, a four room building was
erected and later in 1909 two roonls were added to this building. In the
twenties the building was rernodelled and brick vaneered. As the enrollment
increased, an annex was built on the east end of this building and during
its time has served as a lebortory, classroom, library, and is now being
used as the cafeteria for Central. One of thelatest and the most beneficial
improveinents was inalzing the building modern. For the last few years the
building has been kept very clean and sanitary through the constant efforts OI
Nr. Lawrence Baily. the school custodian, which set the conditions for a
lappy school y-ear. -
Last year, the playground equipment which was added was another feature
ture that contributed to the successful school year. Supplying- this was a
project of Cass Township Parent Teaclier's Association.
At present. Central's enrollment is 213 which warrants only six teachers.
l-fron? all indications. an increased enrolmrnt in the beginning class will be
need next year and for several years to come. This fact points t-he way
to the need for a larger and more modern building in the near future.
Each year the pupils are active in the various projects of the school and
different drives to raise money for charitable organizations. The teachers
and parents strive to cultivate that desire in the children to aid the less
fortunate in every wav possible. This year in the extra activities, the
teachers and the pupils planned a most enjoyable Halloween party, they took
part in the Fall Carnival given at Union by the P. T. AL, presented a
Christmas program, several pupils participated in the band concert 'given at
the high school by the be,Q'inner's band. and the entire school took part in
the Spring? Music Festival given in May at the high schoc-ggi 1
The fact that over sixty percent of our local business places are owned
and operated by local people who were former Central p-irbils, ,frives the
township the privilege of being proud of the elementary school. -Thus, we
can rigrfully say that for a half century adequate education has been given
to supply the needs of those in the present business world and that a for-
ward loolringr vision will supply the needs of the future with an even greater
progress during the next half century.
Time marches on-let us ever keep page and ever do our duty to the end.

Vtlith four successful years to its credit. the school cafeteria can rightfully
step into line and boast of a prominent place in Union's daily program.
During these four years, the students and the faculty have been made aware

in dollars and c-ents. This year the noon lunch program was extended to

Every student who has attended Union has stored up memories of library

Miss Shepherd keep the library in order. They are Lois Davis, Betty Crea-

'lhe record of the shop class development has certainly been a chang-
ing one. Twenty-iiiize years 'ago at the beginning of Union, shop was a
class in wood work and mechanical drawing held in what is now the chem-
istry room. As the class grew, work was taken to the annex in the rooms
new used for journalism and music. When this place proved inadequate for
the work, a budding was made by the use of W. IJ. A. labor and materials
salvaged from abandoned school buildings. This structure on the south
east side of the grounds between main building and football field served
as a home for all the classes in shop worn. More advanced classes could be
offered because there was equipment that rated shop work at Union one
of the best in the state. Q
The final and latest advancement came this last year when a new
and more modern building was erected just south of the gymnasium.
Mr. Taliats and his shop class toys have been very proud of their new
home this their regular class work they have tackled numer-
ous extra projects including work on the football field, setting play-ground
equipment, malzingg' st-age properties, and helping with repair work around
school. Mr. Takats and the boys of shop classes have established a good
rating among other students and classes of Union.
.E I-4' Lisbfi
'fGet it, get accurate, and get it now" was the slogan Which the members
of the journaiisni ci-ass tried to live to. :although credit for Journalism is
given on an English basis or credit, there are alwyays those who are willing
to give extra time to the printing of the work.
The history of journalism at Union began about 1928 in an advanced
English class one day. 'i he discussing the art of writing news 'articles
and editorials, decided to make a school paper as an iflnglish class project.
Uut of this project the school paper Union Static was developed. A few
years later, various .articles were added in order- to make the writing and
editing of a school paper a little easier. At this time the paper was mimeo-
graphed and published once each month. In a short time it was decided
that the paper could be edited once each week. Shortly after this time a
small job press was bought also a few fonts of type and the idea of setting
type was added to the journalism work. For two years the members of the
G. A. C. took sponsoring of the sr-heel as their project so the
regular was relieved of some of actual work of mimeogr-aphing.
During these years the classes were held upstairs of the main building in
304. VVith the addition of the press this room be-:ame inadequ-atel so
the class was moved to one corner of the old shop building. In
1933 the class was moved across the street from the main building? into
the small building on the Rector in a 'very short time another more
was in store for the class and they were eetablisl'zeQl in their present locae
tion the room of the annex between the music room and the kitchen.
With all the IllOfvflS there was also more equipment added and the class
RCW has, two job DFQSS TY12lChi1'16S, 2: larger paper cutter, several fonts of
type, and items necessary to a print shop.
Besides the editing of the school paper each week, the class has done
a large amount of job printing and has set the type -and printed this book.
