"Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast."
Every mood, every feeling finds an outlet in some
score of music. Sadness in the strain of violins, rol-
licking gaiety from the piccolo, depth of the tuba,
rhythm from the beating of the drums, and boister-
ous excitement in the clairvoyant tones of the trum-
pet blend to a harmonious melody lilting and impres-
sive, a melody which leaves us With a feeling of "I
was glad to have been there." So vve feel about our
years at Union High. Therefore, the language of
music can well be used to describe them.
To Miss Robinson, our faculty advisor,
who has done her utmost to- make our
senior year a success, encouraged us in
our studies, and helped us in our activities,
we, the class of 1944, do dedicate this
From le-ft to right. K

MR. MCGREW MISS CLOAK MR. COWHER
WE LU E
Mr. McGreW Was not only an efficient
mathematician, but also one of our more
talented dramatic leaders. His sparkling
personality and neat appearance Won for
him many loyal friends who miss his pres-
ence in school.
To the student body Miss Cloak was
more than just a teacher. She was a cher-
ished friend. Her good humor plus her
endless work in the library are missed by
both the students and faculty.
As an advisor of the Hi-Y Club, Mr.
Cowher proved himself very successful.
The activities which he sponsored are
missed by all, and we await his return to

CLASS COLORS CLASS FLOWER

As we stand upon the threshold of a new life and
new problems, we, the Seniors of the Class of 1944,
look back upon the history of the last twelve years,
which has played its part to make possible this grad-
uation and commencement.
Our first formal education began in 1932 at a
time when our country was being faced with the
problems of a great depression. But those happy
firsts, which are the common heritage of every
school child, were to be the foundation for the
education necessary to meet the then unseen prob-
lems of 1944. We, too, unconsciously played our
part well, for by 1940 we had progressed to the
eighth grade and absorbed sufficient knowledge to
pass the Eighth Grade Examination.
After electing Fred Broad, presidentg Bernard
Boczar, vice presidentg Neal Lowers, treasurer, and
Anne Halick, secretary, we promptly started off our
ninth grade year headed toward business and the
selling of hot dogs and candy, an event which stands
out as the most prominent one of our first year.
The new students were acclimating themselves to
their new school and the making of new friends.
During our Sophomore year Hubert Dougherty
piloted our class as president, with Betty Kerr as
vice president, Betty Kelly as secretary, and Neal
Lowers as treasurer. Our social activities included
a party at Orr's Hall and a skating party at the
Arena. In addition to this we made our efforts
felt in the many other general social activities of
the school. By the end of the year, we had re-
ceived our class rings and were looking forward to
our Junior year and the pride of being upperclass-
Our Junior year opened with the Fred Broad
forces re-electing Fred presidentg Berdina Mrozek
vice presidentg Neal Lowers, treasurerg and Virginia
Chill, secretary. Our first social event was the
Hallowe'en Party at White Oaks, followed by other
successful events including our Holiday Dance dur-
ing the Christmas vacation. And as a perfect cli-
max to our social season, we sponsored and pre-
sented the Junior-Senior Prom as our tribute to the
Seniors of 1943.
The Senior year began with the election of of-
ficers including: Fred Broad, presidentg Barbara
Grittie, vice president, Berdina Mrozek, treasurerg
and Virginia Chill, secretary. As Seniors we im-
mediately made our influence felt in the general
activity of the school. Still bent on the more se-
rious side of life after four years at Union High,
we conducted a most successful, Christmas Card
Campaign with the kind help of Miss Robinson and
Miss Paden. To Miss Paden, also, goes our grati-
tude for her excellent direction and help in making
"Foot Loose" one of the finest Senior plays ever
to be produced at Union High.
As we recount this history of the Class of 1944
we are cognizant of the fact that in history "finis"
can never be set at the end of the page nor at the
close of a chapter. The end of one chapter tells
the beginning of another, the close of one period the
opening of a new. Standing on the threshold of a
new life, we look forward to the challenge of the
ages, hearing a call for courage amid toil and trial
and sacrifice. We look back upon four years of
study and effort at Union High with the feeling of
satisfaction that we have been well prepared for
the future. In this year of challenge and problems
as many of our graduates go forward into the armed
services, while others take added responsibility at
home, we promise to press on to victory guided by
the flame of our faith. And as we assume our
new tasks, as we accept our diplomas, we rededicate
ourselves to our task to the end that torment may
be lifted from men's hearts and peace come for all
nations and all people.

Here I am sitting in study hall, thinking of the
future, and the "Class of '44." It's warm in here
and everything is quiet. Pardon me if I seem rude,
but I'll just lay my head on my books and sleep.
Maybe I'll dream of the friends I made, trouble I
got into, and the fun I had or maybe-I'll-just-
What's this? Where am I? Of course, I'm at
my brother's house talking over the old school days
at Union High School.
HARRIS-7-I wonder what our fellow graduates
are doing this year of 1964.
FRED-You probably remember some of our air-
minded students. Well, James Emery is now owner
of his own flying field. Charlotte Pagley is em-
ployed as a flight instructor. Incidentally, she will
instruct only male students. I wonder why? As-
sociated. with the National Helicopter Service is
Jean Hart, employed as a hostess.
HARRIS-Yes, and I got a letter from General
Jack ,Donley, United Army Air Corps. He is think-
ing of resigning because he says it isn't safe around
his camp since Alfred Umstead received his wings.
FRED-Speaking of screwballs, I always think
of Ken Stoner. In a recent search for a sky hook,
I ran across a little hock shop in downtown Chicago.
In the window hung a sign which read:
Gooney Gadgets, Inc. i
Nuts, Bolts, or anything that's loose.
Ken Stoner, Prop.
Just around the corner Myrtle Shaw has an es-

day to get some eggs and found it was operated
by Francis Thomson and John Cowden, Industrial
Farmers. They are now working on a project en-
titled: "Fedelis Eggeonis" or "How to Get Eggs
from a Rooster."
FRED-Willis Bretz is now operator of a large
local garage, used mainly for keeping flivvers in
HARRIS-Well, I'm not surprised. Say! Have
you read the latest Esquire? Bill Cox has published
an interesting article, "How to Get Your Woman."
FRED-It seems quite a number of fellow stu-
dents have taken up journalism as a career. Anne
Halie is now editor of that famous newspaper,
Bols 'ck Blow. A few members of the staff are
Soph Zombeclc as 3. reporter and Larry Bryer as
chief printer. Helen McClenahan is now cartoonist
of that thrilling comic strip, "Fearless Fosdickf'
HARRIS--I was going down to the local fortune
teller Betty Wright, to learn all the local gossip
when I ran into Harry Foreman. He is now mar-
ried to Mary Burkey. They now have four chil-
dren-Mike, Delores, Pete, and Lopez.
FRED-While we are on the subject of mar-
riages, I might mention that Mr. Neal Lowers
dropped into my office and asked for a job. It
seems he and Wilma can't make a living on just
HARRIS--On the society page of the New Or-
leans newspaper there is a picture of Bessie Sweit-
zer and her soldier-husband, Sgt. Ikle Drip.
FRED-Let's go to the Leanell Theater, operated
by Leasure and McConnell, tonight and see Pro-
ducer Dorothy Homm's greatest picture, "Eternal
Love," in which Frank "Gable" Zelina and Helen
"Lamour" Wolanski have the leading roles.
HARRIS-It's a good thing I'm married or it
wouldn't be safe around here. Pauline Williams
and Elinore Wallace are still looking for a man.
They say a -man isn't safe after dark.
FRED-Would you like to go to the famous
White Oaks Dance Hall with me some night? Verla
Miller and Martha Jane MeConahy are now present
owners of the site. This week's feature is "Spike
Jones and his City Slickers," starring Angelo Via.
that famous tap dancer, and Helen Cover, bubble
dancer. Joe Babb holds the position of head
HARRIS-Yes, I'l1 go if you promise to attend
the service at Trinity Church on Sunday. Reverend
McKinney's guest speakers are the Temperance
Union leaders, Virginia McCreary and Phyllis Dicks.
Their topic for discussion is "The Ruination of
Man" or "Canned Heat Through Rye."
FRED-Speaking of food, I recently came to
the understanding that Edith Gostyla is now owner
of the local Isaly's Store and Frances Kueharski is
now manager of Pittsburgh's largest restaurant and
HARRIS-They make good cooks. I was at the
La Voe Restaurant the other day and ordered a
steak. When I found a nail in it, I went back to
give the cook a piece of my mind. Was I surprised?
It was Martha Miller. She forgot to take the shoes
off the horse before she cooked it. I settled the
matter with the proprietor, Adelaide Norris.

.fefft grace Me luadic
The happiest moment of my life came when I
was told that I had been chosen to appear before
an audience and say exactly what I think of this
moronic looking group of characters who have the
nerve to call themselves seniors, and now I shall
proceed to enjoy myself.
The first person who comes to my mind is Fred
Broad, our Class President. He is a self-made man
who definitely worships his maker.
The artist of the year is Florence Rusu. The
pictures of girls that she draws would make Varga
turn green with envy.
Mary Burkey didn't watch her figure very closely
and now the boys don't either.
Wilma Leeper reflects on a ride, "After ten miles
in Red Lower's Ford, it takes me 15 minutes to stop
Angelo Via seems to know all the latest dope on
the movies that come to New Castle and he had me
wondering how he could afford to see so many.
I finally found out that he still gets in for chil-
A good nickname for Peg MeCombs would be
"Cat-eyes" or haven't you ever seen her freakish
If Helen Mcclenahan lived any farther up in the
hills, she would need a compass and a road map
to find her way to the school bus.
Willis Bretz has been voted by the class as the
person most likely to go to seed.
Alfred Umstead reminds me of a photograph-
overexposed and underdeveloped.
When it comes to "Gab and Gossip," Edith Gos-
tyla will give anyone a good battle for the cham-
Harry Foreman's technique with the girls is posi-
tively horrible but you've got to give him credit
because he keeps trying anyhow.
There has been an acute shortage of gum because
of the War, but Pauline Williams seems to have
more than her share. I wouldn't be a bit surprised
'if she gets it from underneath the desks in study
Frank Bocek is one person who believes in giving
credit when credit is due. When we have an exam,
he puts quotations around the answers as a courtesy
to the person sitting next to him.
The almighty dollar seems to have Woven its spell
around Jean Hart this year. She- works down at
Axe's Market, or should I say she spends most of
her time at Axe's Market?
I x take all summer for Mr. Pattison to
straig n out the mess in which Berdina Mrozek
and Virginia Chill leave the office when they grad-
I've heard it rumored that Bessie Sweitzer comes
from the shady side of her family tree.
John Cowden drives that car of his as if he were
rehearsing for an accident.
I don't know whether Adelaide Norris dyes her
hair or whether it just gets dirty awfully fast, but
I do know it changes color pretty often.
Jack Donley has high "blonde" pressure.
I saw a picture of Juanita Skaggs a while ago and
it just reminded me of one of those pictures in
a health advertisement entitled: "Girls-Don't Let
This Happen to You."
From what I hear Frank Zelina is pretty much
of a wolf at those barn dances way out there in
the country. The girls in the country had better
stop him before it is too late.
Bill Cox calls his peculiar style of jitterbugging,
"The Big Apple." It seems to me that every time
I see it, it gets a little more rotten.
Steve Kali is one of the newer members of the
class but that hasn't impeded his progress with some
of the girls.
Mary Janovieh seems to be one of the high class
babes of the Senior Class. She sometimes favors
one or two of us with a sympathetic smile and then
lets us continue our lives in peaceful bliss.
I often wondered what Carrie Heckart looks like
under all that paint and stuff she calls make-up.
Albert Dudo has been wandering around Union
in a daze the last four years. He wants people to
think that it's a girl on his mind, but I think he's
just plain lazy.
James Emery always conveniently manages to
get Miss Robinson on the subject of Current Events
on test days.
The stork that brought Fred and Harris Sagabiel
ought to be tracked down and shot before it can
loose any more destruction on the world.
Frances Kuharski, Sophie Zombek, Genevieve
Sinkovieh, and Marie Biddle are four girls who
never say very much. They had better wake up
and get themselves a man before the manpower
shortage really gets bad.
Is it possible to ,find anyone around school who
can play basketball or baseball as well as Stanley
Carr says he can?
Hot, sultry, days at Union never bothered the
students who were fortunate enough to be in the
same study hall as "Breezy" Bertha Biedka. She
always managed to keep the air in motion with her
choice morsels of gossip from Oakland.
Marjorie Snyder has to pick a boy friend from
the underclassmen. All the Seniors know her too
well, so she has no other choice.
Someone ought to make Myrtle Shaw and Martha
Miller eat some of that stuff they cook in the cafe-
teria. My suggestion is for them to take- up wash-
ing dishes and leave the cooking to someone else.
Margaret Heim is going to the dogs. She is seen
too often with the little boys from Edenburg.
I've heard people say that Jeanne Robert's voice
is like a bird's. The only bird I ever heard that
sounded like that was a crow.
Charles McKinney is a glutton for punishment.
His idea of a perfect night is to have a pile of books
and lots of night work.
I overheard someone remark that Helen Wolanski
was a bright young girl. Well, I'll admit that she
is a young girl, all right, but the only thing I can
see that's bright about her 'is her red hair.
Joe Babb is one person who never does anything
wrong. How can he? He never does anything.
The home economics class hasn't done very much
for Julia Wolanin. She got as far as threading a
needle and then got lost.
The less said about Kern Stoner the better.
Helen Cover is a very good example of that much
used expression, "Cut off my legs and call me
The only things I ever saw Elinore Wallace get
out of school were a few notes from Pauline Wil-
liams or Helen McClenahan. ' '
After teachers have Dorothy Homm and Callista
Smith in their classes for a while, they just throw
up their hands in horror and give up. We lose
more teachers that way.
I see that Curtis Anderson has given up chewing
plug tobacco in school. It's not so good without a
spittoon, you know.
It's been hard to figure out whether Helen Kielar
is stuck up or does she always act that way?
Barbara Grittie is one person who shows no par-
tiality around Union. Everyone suffers when'she
One day in the home room I heard Betty Wright
say something. She probably got excited and for-
Anne Halick has the ambition to be an art teacher
in a school some place-. After hearing her boss
those kids around in the Art Room, I'm going to
make sure that no children of mine attend the
school she teaches.
Here's a question that has been bothering me for
quite a while. What can you say about a person
who makes as much noise as Twila McConnell
Bob Shane and Martin Evans claim to be Self-
made men. That may be, but I think that they
are horrible examples of unskilled labor.
If Ruth Polcling came to school any later in the
morning, she'd meet the rest of the school going
home for lunch.
At chewing gum and fanning the breeze Char-
lotte Pagley has 110 equal.
Verla Miller isn't called "Muscles" for nothing.
Virginia McCreary would look more Spic if she
didn't have so much span.
We fellows of Union are all a little dubious about
taking Anna Leasure out. All her brothers were
rather good prize fighters and Heaven knows what
Anna will turn out to be.
I often wondered how Helen Peterson, common-
ly known around Union as "Painted Pan Peterson"
managed to get herself a steady boy friend in that
hideous Freshman year.
I didn't think Frank Dudek would ever grow out
of those knickers but he's worn long pants for quite
a while now.
Cecelia Chesmer has received an offer to work
for the Methodless Mop Co. They've probably
seen some of those original hair-dos of hers and
want her as a designer for their mops.
I found out that the- reason Martha Jane Mc-
Conahy and Frances Siegel d0n't come- to Our
dances is because the orchestras don't play cowboy
music. It just isn't done around here.
It isn't often you get a big barrel-chested fellow
like Francis Thomson in a class. Of course, it
would be much better if it didn't look as if the
barrel had gone over Niagara Falls before he got it.
Larry Bryer has come to the conclusion that good
thick summer oil is the best kind to use on his hair.
He had changed to thin winter oil but it kept run-
ning down the back of his neck, so he had to make
The way Phyllis Dicks works in school you'd
think that school was just a place to get an educa-
tion. I A
In concluding this little article of sarcasm I wish
to say that all of this has been in fun and I trust
that it has been taken with the insincerity with
which it was intended.
We, the class of Nineteen Hundred and Forty-
Four, Union High School, County of Lawrence, and
State of Pennsylvania, being sound ofmind and
memory, do hereby make, publish, and declare this
to be our last will and testament, hereby rendering
null and void all other wills heretofore made by us.

As you all know, Anne Halick lived in the Art

years. She has finally consented to leave what is
left of the Art Room to Marjorie Rohrer.
To the future sailors of America, Kenneth 'Stoner
gives his waves. Of, course, we mean the ones in
Cecelia -Chesmer bequeaths her yellow fingernail
polish to anyone who wants it, but who wants it?
Since Don Hoover has taken Latin I for two years
and even then had a difficult time passing it, Bar-
bara Grittie leaves him her credit and honor points
in that subject.
To anyone who wants to push every time he goes
out, Pauline Williams wills her blue-green limou-
Charlotte Pagley leaves her motto: "Don't
squeeze me until I'm yours," to Audrey Hammers.
We grant to each and every school bus conveying
inmates of that renowned institution of learning,
Union High School, a lock of Helen Wolanski's
flaming red tresses for a stop light. '
Carrie Heckart wills her scatterbrain ideas to Sis
Donley, who already has quite a few of her own.
To those Juniors who aren't allowed to read love
stories at home, Sophie Zombek leaves them all her
True Confessions and Modern Romances that She
read during her Senior-year. '
Angelo Via bequeaths his seat on the football
bench to Louis Rotuno. Q , I

Bill Cox, one of 1944's Romeos, who kissed his

bacco since, leaves his line to Louis Krueger.

As a successor to this title, Fred leaves his position
to Joe Park.
Neal Lowers leaves his illegal excuses for absence
and tardiness to Phil Clark.
Edith Gostyla wills her ability to jitterbug to any
piece of music to anyone desiring it.
Twila McConnell isn't the least bit particular.
She'll leave her shorthand book to anyone inter-
ested in the subject.
Bessie Sweitzer refuses to leave anything to
Union. She wants everything for Chuck.

cuses which he used during hunting season.
Frances Ambrosia is the receiver of Elinore Wal-
lace's ability to get in front of the mirror regard-

he'd leave some of his excess height to him.

From the first crack of the gavel at the organization
meeting in September, the Juniors, with Elmer Bigley as
their leader, sailed right into hard work, good fun. and
a very prosperous year.
Forgetting the worries of rationing, no gas, no tires,
etc., they held a dance in the auditorium which was dec-
orated in good old American red, White, and blue. It Was
a great success with the students dancing from 8 :00 until
the soft strains of "Good-by Now" were heard at 11:00.
Varying the type of social life, later in the year they spon-
sored a skating party at the Arena. With an eye to the
more serious side of life, they polished up their sales talks
and all sold magazines to help Don Straitwell balance the
budget. Their talents in the dramatic line were demon-
strated When they joined the Seniors in the presentation
of a three-act comedy, "Mistakes at the Blakesf' Finally,
came the most thrilling time of the Junior year-the
Prom, an event which brought to a fitting close a year of
success. . A

Reluctantly we see our Sophomore year closing, for
we feel that it has been the most worthwhile one in our
career as high school students.
As we stand on the threshold of our Junior year,
let us glance back over 'the events of the past year. At
the beginning of the year we chose our class rings, which
we proudly received during the latter part of the term.
As our class colors we choose green and white, and
as our flower, the white gardenia.
The greatest event of the year was the presentation of
"A Bargain ls AMBargain," the first Sophomore play ever
to be produced at Union High. Much of the success of
this play can be attributed to the patience of Miss Paden.
Now at the halfway mark we can stop to look back
with a great deal of pleasure and a little regret at what
is behind us, and to look forward with anticipation and
determination to do even better in the future. g
Class, Attention! Under the command of captains,
Miss Rentz, Miss Albert, and Mrs. Krause, the Freshmen
recruits began their high school life. Under these able
leaders they learned the principles of class organization,
the contribution of Whole-hearted cooperation to the suc-
cess of every undertaking, and many other lessons which
will be of value to them in their later life at Union.
As this Was their basic training, they did not par-
ticipate in any important advances this year. But as they
leave their basic training behind, they hope next year to
embark upon more difficult and larger missions.

This is what you hear when the Union
cheerleaders take their stand on the floor
during pep meetings. Their vigor and vi-
tality have aroused the school spirit as
never before in Union's history.
Under the skillful leadership of the
Misses Venditto, Wadlinger, and Kissick,
the girls have introduced various new
cheers, have improved the old stand-bys,
and have worked and slaved to get every
member of the student body solidly behind

"Blame it on the War." This phrase, used
countless times as an excuse for failures, de-
scribes our 1943 football season. The first se-
rious blow came when our coach, Wilbur Palt-
terson, was accepted in the U. S. Army. 'Calmly
taking this in our stride ,we proceeded to get
ourselves in shape under the watchful eyes of
our newcoach, Mr. Thompson, and his able as-
sistants, Mr. Hofmeister and Mr. Pattison.
Perhaps the thing which hit us hardest was
the fact that Uncle Sam could use some of our
players' talents more than we could on the foot-
ball field. We reluctantly saw some of our best
players enter the Army or Navy and we became
more determined than ever to have a football
season that Would make them proud to have
come from Union. We tried to the utmost of
our abilities, but the lack of experience and pol-
ished material gradually got the upper hand
and led us through a very dismal season.
The squad was composed mostly of under-
classmen and we hope to utilize the experience
We have gained this past season to produce the
classiest football team in this district next year.
"Un la WWI,
December, with its cold Winter winds, ushered in a
basketball season at Union which seemed to hold little
promise for us. The crashing of the heavy feet of our
athletes could be heard for many Weeks before the season
started, in the hope of developing themselves into stalwart
performers Worthy of Wearing Union's blue and white in
active W. P. I. A .L. competition. The appearance of one
veteran from last year was an encouraging sight to Coach
"Pat" Patterson, but With the inexperience which Was so
predominent in the rest of the squad he knew that a dif-
ficult and trying season lay ahead of him. His patience
and endurance was greatly appreciated by everyone on
In counting the number of games Won, our season
could not be considered very successfulg but it was suc-
cessful in that We succeeded in holding the attention and
having the complete support of the student body and fac-
ulty of the school. In all sincerity We are proud to say
that our morale, spirit, and sportsmanship were surpassed
by no other school We have had the pleasure of playing
After an absence of one year, the Junior Varsity has
come back to provide exciting preliminary gamesfor the
many basketball fans of Union. This absence was very
notable last year and the return of the "little guys" was
happily greeted by everyone.
Mr. Thompson and his assistant, Mr. Hofmeister, had
the thankless task of molding smooth, co-ordinated play-
ers out of awkward, gangling, students from the Junior
High School. For the main part, none of the candidates
had had any experience at all, and Messrs. Thompson and
Hofmeister have done exceptionally Well in developing
the abilities of these boys.
The team deserves credit for their performances this
year. They may have lost the majority of their games,
but this Was due to their lack of experience and to the
fact that the teams that they have played the past season
were all much older, larger, and from higher grades in
school. The entire squad will be back together next year,
and with the experience they have gained this past year,
We sincerely hope that they Will find the successful sea-
son they missed this year.

"One, two, three, four,

Above the sound of clarinets, trumpets, and bass
drums comes this rythmic chant. No, it's not a group of
new recruits marching at Camp Reynolds. It's the sound
that issues from the auditorium every eighth period as
Mr. Richard Patterson leads the band in its daily practice.
The results of all this practice were demonstrated to
us in 'the vim and vigor with which they led the Victory
songs at our various pep meetings, and which helped to
raise the scores at those exciting basketball games. Other
public appearances were made at such special events as
the Sophomore play.
For next year the band has a high goal to attain.
Flashy plaid uniforms carrying out the theme of the
Union Scotties would add color and spirit to our basket-
ball and football games, and would give the boys in the
band added incentive to play their best. So for next year
we wish themall the good luck and success possible to
enable them to reach the realization of their goal.

The Girls' Ensemble really came into its own this
year. In order to promote a more friendly feeling be-
tween rival schools, a policy of exchange assembly pro-
grams between the county schools was adopted. The ad-
ministration looked around for a suitable group to repre-
sent Union and wisely chose the Girls' Ensemble as its
special envoys of peace.
The Girls' Ensemble is composed of a groupof girls
who have musical talent. Realizing the importance of the
task assigned to them, they directed all their energies 'to-
ward fulfilling it well, and they prepared a program of
which Union could be justly proud. This program was
presented at Bessemer, Wampum, and East Brook, where
it was cordially received by the students of these schools.
Evidence of the success of these programs can be
seen in the attitude of other schools when they visit us.
Instead of hearing remarks like "Kill them," "Blame -it
on the referee," or "They can't do that to us," one is much
more likely to hear "That was a nice program you gave,"
or "Nice game-the best team won."
"What!, No Palette Club next year? Why, of
course there'l1 be a 'Palette Club next year. This club
has been in existence since 1933, and its membership has
increased and its interests expanded steadily until it is
now the largest and most successful club in the school.
"Why, no Palette Club would mean no Harvest Moon
Dance, and that's the dance that started the social activi-
ties at Union this year, there would be no repetition of
the Calico Ball with its gay decorations, long dresses, and
the danceable music of Carmen Orlando's orchestrag it
would mean no skating party like the one we had in Feb-
ruary. It would even mean no more U-Hi News, for We
sponsor it, you know.
"This year with Joe Babb, Anna Leasure, Helen Mc-
Clenahan, and Chuck McKinney at the helm has been so
successful that next year will probably show a bigger
membership and more activity than the club has ever
known. Everyone will want to join so that they can be
on hand when the fun begins. So give up that idea, my
friend, and keep your eye on the Palette C1ub.f'

In addition to the usual articles, which includes the
Literary page, interesting bits of news, club activities,
interviews, sportreports, class doings, and cartoons, we
have added an exchange column, made of articles taken
from different school papers, and a monthly column on
the subject of etiquette. These different features are
submitted by students who comprise the staff, among
whom are: Anne Halick, the efficient editor-in-chiefg
her very helpful assistant, Jean Frockg our capable busie
ness manager, Jack Donleyg the speedy typist, Charlotte
Pagleyg and expert printers, Larry Bryer and Bob Cooper.
Much of the paper's success is due to the supervision
of Miss Wadlinger and Mrs. Post.
The publication of the U-Hi News is anticipated by
all the student body, and it is a paper of which we can
be justly proud. p

Under the leadership of the able President and Vice
President, Barbara Grittie and Jeanne Roberts, the effi-
cient secretary, Marie Veronesi, and the conscientious
treasurer, Patty Wheaton, a year of work and fun got
under way. Early in the year the girls participated in
the World Fellowship program at the Cathedral. The
Christmas season was celebrated with a party and ex-
change of gifts among the girls, and, in the true Christ-
mas spirit of doing things for others, with a party for the
children of West Side School. Dancing every Friday
night at the weekly "Swing Lobby" helped to brighten
the weeks between Christmas and Easter. And basket-
ball teams provided ahtletic competition for the girls.
This varied program provided wholesome activities of all
kinds, and made the year an interesting and successful
swan qw Qellaw Q.: 7 ff
With their hands on the throttle and their keen eyes
on the rail, the Hi-Y took on steam and zoomed right into
a very successful and active year.
Regular meetings were held on Wednesday evenings
at the Y. M. C. A., at Which the boys were addressed by
outstanding members of the community. Swimming and
basketball provided an opportunity for athletic competi-
tion. But the highlight of the year was the dance spon-
sored by the club in the school auditorium. Decorations
of red, White, and blue provided the theme of the dance,
while the nation's best orchestras Con records, of coursel
provided the music. It was a huge success.
The engineers who led the boys and the organization
to the station of success Were: Neal Lowers, presidentg
Fred Broad, vice presidentg Jack Donley, treasurer: and
Francis Thomson, secretary. To these leaders the boys
of the club wish all the luck in the World on their grad-
uation. If the officers for the oncoming year prove to be
as efficient as the present ones, success next year Will be
as sure as tomorrow.

"Now, Bob, you must speak clearly and more dis-

Where is Bill? Helen, go out and get Bill. Fred, you
stay right Where you are." Such were the exclaimations
of Miss Paden during rehearsals. c '

The monitor squad this year had the advantage of
patterning its activities after last year's successful organi-
zation. This, plus the untiring efforts of Miss' Robinson
and the entire group, made it the best coordinated staff
ever to function in Union High School.
The members of the squad are selected from the out-
standing students in the junior and senior high school.
One of the requirements of the Monitors is to have a high
scholastic standing before they are considered for a posi-
One of the oaths a Monitor must take when he is
accepted is to uphold the rules and regulations of the
school, setting himself as an example for other students
dents at all times. This and the many other duties are
lived up to with great honor, all with one aim in mind:
"To make our school a place of which We can be proud."
To Miss Robinson, our faculty adviser, we express
our sincere gratitude for her faithful Work, and to next
year's squad goes our Whole-hearted hope that they will
carry on the good work. A

The Varsity Club was organized by the pupils of
the Junior and Senior classes Who had participated in our
competitive sports program. Its purpose Was to further
the student body's interest in our football and basketball
teams, and to arouse a sense of pride in the school activi-
ties. The first meeting was dedicated to the organization
of the club and the election of officers. Neal Lowers was
chosen presidentg Joe Babb, vice president, Elmer Bigley,
secretary, and Benny Korab, treasurer.
Mr. Hofmeister accepted the difficult task of being
our faculty adviser. His help on matters of business, such
as awards, Ways of financing the club, and eligibility for
membership, was eagerly accepted by the members of
The highlight event of the year was a basketball
game between the Juniors and the Seniors. The Juniors
Won, but the game Was enoyed by all who attended.
It is the sincere hope of everyone who was fortunate
enough to be a member of this club that it can be con-
tinued in the future, and that it has accomplished the aim
,for which it was organized.

"Over hill, over dale,
We will hit the tin can trail."
This was the theme song of the Girl Scouts as they
joined with the rest of the "Tincannoneers" to gather tin
cans for the salvage program. These "Tincannoneers"
received army ranks according to the number of houses
frame which they collected cans.
While collecting cans, they also gathered paper for
the newest salvage campaign and sold seeds and cal-
Besides doing their bit for national defense, they are
working hard on their regulation scout work. The first
step in this direction was the investiture ceremony at
new members were received and second class badges
awarded to each girl who had completed one activity
from each of the ten fields of scout work. Some of the
girls have now started working toward their first class
badges by acting as hostesses at various social activities
of the troop.
Through their defense activities and regulation scout
work, the girls are not only helping in the war effort, but
are fitting themselves for the future in which they will
play an important part.

It is with due respect and utmost sincerity
that We dedicate this page of our annual
to our loyal friends, Mr. Cover and Mr.
McConnell, the school custodians.
During every school day some student
has profited by the willingness of these
gentlemen to render any service great or
small or to give a word of friendship and
advice, expecting only the cooperation of
the student body as a sufficient return.
For these reasons we wish to take this
opportunity to express our gratitude with
a cordial "Thank You."
