When as Freshmen, we began our life as high school students., we were eager and desirous of success. Our class was a very unusual Freshmen class as we were all, more or less, interested in athletics. However, we broadened out into fields of music, and scholastic honors. And then, we found ourselves a .step nearer our goal. Sophomores! The Freshmen experienced their first taste of high school life when we honored them at a Freshman-Sophomore Initiation Party on Hallowe'en night. Several of us still treasure memories of that party! When we again found ourselves at school, we had begun to feel slightly superior. Why shouldnt we? .We were Juniors! Several members of the class displayed their dramatical talent when they presented "The Crazy Mix-Up." This was followed by one of the major events of our school life, the "Junior- Senior Reception," when we all pretended we were farmers. Now, we are Seniors: some of us about to leave school, others striving' toward a higher goal through higher ed'ucatioin. The leadership of Don Knerr and the attitude of the Senior class in gen- eral has made this a, year filled with parties, festivals, plays, work, play and advancement. We know that all this work has not been done in vain, but believe as we bid you "goodbye" that it has been well worth our time and struggles. Juanita E. Baer WILDCAT CLASS WILL We, the Senior Class of 1940, of the Township of Union, County of Van Wert, and State of Ohio, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this our Last Will and Testament., hereby revoking and making null and void all other Wills and Testaments made by us here- tofore. Section I Article 1. We give and bequeath to the faculty of Union School, the feeling of relief they will sense when we as Seniors of '40 receive our gradu- ation diplomas. Article II. We bequeath to the Junior Class our ability to make money Cof which they are badly in needj and our ability to place Union on the map. Article III. We bequeath to the Sophomore Class a better chance than we had. Article IV. We give to the Freshmen our ability to get along with the teachers. Section II Lindsay McCandlish, the only quiet boy of the class of '40 bequeaths his dislike of the girls to Lester Goings, who can easily use it. Virginia Stripe wills her ever dependable parking lot for chewing gum to any Junior who is lucky enough to get her seat next year, Gene Hoaglin wills all blondes and brunettes to anybody who can at- tract them, but refuses to relinquish his claim on redheads. Phoebe McCandlish gives her ability to write long letters to Catherine Hunter who might use it in place of long speeches on this and that. Karl Laemmle wills Corwin Ray all of the A's which he finds on his grade card. Maryellen Knerr, "Sadie" to you, wills her recipe book, "What to Feed Your Husband to Make Him Fat and Lovable" to Lois Ruth Bofrden. Charles Hargesheimer wills "that way with the women" to Glenn Knerr. Mary Davis wills her 'tsuperiority' to Donna Dumar, also her abilities as a secretary. Robert Smith wills his ability to be a successful and efficient Annual edi- tor to some Junior who will have the same weighty responsibility in '4l. Mildred Basil, our future nurse, wills her ability to get along with the teachers to Ruth Ho-aglin. Vondale Taylor wills his sweat s.ocks, which can walk, to Bob Barry. Grace Murphy, little but mighty, wills her red hair and the temper that goes with it to Lois Cress. Barney Short wills his Dodge, that runs without guiding, to Burton Hob- let. Take heed Ben! Dorothy Mason wills her ability to attract Hollywood to Phyllis Shaffner. WILDCAT Willard Dougal wills his badly worn books and magazines, all except the Popular Mechanics and Popular Science to Carl Foust. Make good use of them, Carl. Miriam Flickinger wills her "kid" brother, Marhl, to the teachers so they will have some one to "bawl out" in the years to come. Earl Speelman, the windielst person I've ever met, wills some of his stored away air to Dale McOmber. Eloise Miller wills the curly hair that she wishes she had to Anna Kath- ryn Baer. Don Knerr wills his ideas on how to build a winning basketball team to Mr. Fasig or any other coach. And I, Juanita Baer, will my ability to argue with anyone and everyone to Leola Speelman. CSignedJ THE SENIOR CLASS Section III. Article 1. We, the members of the Senior Class, do hereby appoint Dale McOmber to carry out the exactment of this our last Will and Testa, ment. Article II. In witness whereof, I the undersigned have hereunto set my hand on the seal on the 24th day of May in the year One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty. D UTC J1f'7fLA', iff 'Lf ' I QClass President, WILDCAT VISICNS IN A DREAM Resting before the fireplace in my comfortable, cozy room, I felt quite elated at having been promoted to the job of being supervisor of the Cincin- nati playgrounds, yet a feeling of loneliness for the sight of my classmates crept over me. Knowing that I couldnt go to see them, however, I picked up a popular book hoping that reading would divert my mind, but soon drowsi- ness overtook me and I wa.s in a peaceful slumber dreaming of my friends. At first all was hazy and dark but out o-f dimness came a silver object. It was a large airliner piloted by Vondale Taylor and in the cabin, making everyone cheerful and comfortable, was Juanita Baer, airline hostess. I watched the plane descend upon a spacious field and there by the corral stood Charles Hargesheimer, owner of the famous CZ ranch in Colorado, waiting for Earl Speelman, a special political gfuest, to get off the plane. For a moment the picture grew ha.zy and shifting, then I saw Miriam working in a neatly decorated beauty salon in Columbus. She is calling the long distance operator, Grace Murphy, for a connection with New York. Evidently she wishes to speak to Miss Virginia Stripe, a distinguished dramatic teacher. The picture blots out, but here's a new one exposing Robert Smith as he leaves his office at the Smith-Hughes olfice in Washington, D. C. to catch a train for Fort Wayne, Indiana. He is to speak at a farmers' meeting and among those to hear his advice will be Barney Short, prominent farmer, also Karl Laemmle, who is specializing in hybrid s.eed corn. As the scene shifts again, I see a school house. Sure-it is dear old Union, even though it is enlarged and improved. In a well equipped Home Econom- ic's room I hear Miss Mary Davis telling her pupils that next week they will have a special guest, Maryellen Knerr, to give them information on dietetics, as she is a dietician in the Flower Hospital in Toledo. Mildred Basil is a capable nurse at the same hospital. Fog and blackness blot out the picture and in its place, I see a vision of Gene Hoaglin giving his baseball team some final advice before playing the decisive game of the season. His Indians are playing the Giants before a large audience in Detroit. Little does he realize that Don Knerr, mathematics teacher and basketball coach at Grover Hill, will be there to see his class- mate once again. WILDCAT Gradually the scene changes revealing Dorothy in a small, attractive, white house in California, greeting Phoebe McCandlish. The former Miss Mason listens in delight as Phoebe enthusiastically tells of her wedding plans. Now everything is dark but there in the greyness, I see Lindsay Mc- Candlish developing pictures. He has in his hand a picture of Willard Dougal, the man who made headlines hy inventing a new type engine. His picture will be in the San Francisco Daily Times, with details of the invention. Suddenly I awoke with a start to find it all a dream! Nevertheless, I felt somewhat cheered and comforted as I picked up the book where it had dropped on the floor and prepared to sleep in bed for the remaining few hours of the night. Eloise Miller 5' ig? - M 'H W' WILDCAT JUNIOR BRGADCAST Class Flower, American Rose Class Colors, Red and Silver Motto, "Building for Character not for Fame" Station J. R. C. broadcasting on a frequency of 1940 kilocycles, presents for your entertainment a series of News Chats, originating in the studios. of Union High School. Announcing this program for our genial sponsor Mr. Fasig, is none other than President Dale McOmber, assisted by Vice President Mildred Thompson, Secretary Eleanor Dumar, and Treasurer Gerald Reid. Miss Thompson now takes you behind the scenes in Junior life, Miss Thompson! Greetings, Annual listeners! Since my last chat with you our number has decreased from seventeen to sixteen. Early in the fall We opened our social season with a party, later a Christmas party, and then in March the graceful girls with the gallant lads in the class for partners took to the floor of the Y. W. C. A., on skates. What parties do to finances is a long story. To help finance the Junior- Senior banquet honoring the no-ble Seniors, we sold pop-corn at the basket- ball games. We wish to thank our patrons. Late in January we searched for a memento which might, in years to come remind us of our successful broadcast. At last a gracefully designed ring, bearing the station of our broadcast, U. H. S., was selected and purch- ased by every member. Our greatest thrill was the presentation of "This Night Beware," includ- ing a cast of 12 characters. In addition we all participated in various activi- ties, sports, fellowship, music, and faced them bravely. Next year listen in again-same time, same station-for the latest bulletin of Junior life.

Joyously we boarded the huge monster. Miss Sheley, our sponsor, saw to it that our motors were soon humming and we started off in grand manner, with our president Anna Kathryn Baer as pilot, Vice-President Robert McCoy at the controls and Secretary-Treasurer Beryl Grubaugh as radio operator. Toward the last of Sep-tember we swooped down from the heavens with a perfect landing and picked up a new pas- senger, Margaret Oberster. Our plane was refueled, our motors looked over and again we went zooming into the distance in the same grand style as the first. At dawn, October 16, an eventful day was born. We landed in our radio operator's pasture and gave the Freshman a jolly initiation into the high school. The next day we resumed our flight. On December 19, we landed for an evening of polishing the floor of a skating rink. fthis is called skating for somej. Then we resumed our so far perfect flight. But "into each life a little rain must fall," and towards the last of December a huge black cloud loomed oin the horizon. Bravely our ship met the storm isemester exams to youj, and we came out victorious. Our pilot decided that, although our ship had braved the storm wonderfully, a bit of repair really wouldn't hurt it. So in January we landed again. This time when we took off, a new passenger, Phyllis Shaifner, went along. We glided along through January and February. The rest of the year passed along with nothing much happening except for a few more minor storms. Our flight ended in May and was indeed a real success.

We started the year out with Capt- ain McOmber, First Mate Knerr and Second Mate Bauer guiding us happily on our journey. The class cruised around with fair weather until a storm appeared on the horizon, which We recognized as the Sophomore initiation party. All went well until we met up with another ship and on it were the semester exam- inations which We happily passedg so our happy group sailed on. We had some spills and thrills at our roller skating parties on the recre- ation deck which helped to make the cruise more fun. We completed our cruise in May, and will be seeing you again next year as Sophomores. Virginia Brewer FRESHMAN CLASS ROLL Row One.

Many selections have been given in assembly programs and we also did our be-st for the Farmers' Institute, the Music Festival, Spring Concert, Baccalaureate and Commencement. Under the leadership of Miss Sheley and with the help of Donna Dumar at the piano, we have perfected many new and beautiful numbers.

WILDCAT BAND At the beginning of the school year C1939-401, a band, the first in the history of Union School, was organized under the direction of Mr. P. G. Weil- er. They began with approximately sixteen members, but more students took up the challenge and at present the total membership is twenty-three. The band has taken part in several chapel programs. They participated' in the Farmers' Institute Program, and a number of the P. T. A. demonstrations. They also united with the other bands of the county to take part in the Band Festival, which was held at the Van Wert High School, on May 7.

WILDCAT GIRL RESERVES All thirty-two members of Un1on's Girl Reserve Club are proud of their organization. And why shouldn't they be? We have a very good advisor, Miss Miller, and the officers are splendid. The club has been very active all year. Officers were elected as follows at a meeting held last year: President, Mary Davisg Vice President, Mildred' Basilg and Secretary-Treasurer, Virginia Stripe. The first Saturday night in each month is Girl Reserve night at tlhe Y. W. C. A. in Van Wert. On October second the Union girls were hostesses. In the afternoon we made carameled apples which were served at the party. And the Christmas part.y was very enjoyable with tlhe Snow-Ball dec- orations making the occasion more effective. Skating, dancing, and games have been entertainment at these parties. The Girl Reserve recognition service for the installation of new meni- bers was held on December twentieth. All Girl Reserves and their mothers were present. The candle service was very impressive, with new members taking the Girl Reserve pledge and lighting their candles. from that of the president. A program under the supervision of Eloise Miller was held, and Miss Barbour, Y. W. C. A. Secretary, gave a short talk. A project during the year was giving five cents per member toward the support of a Chinese girl for one year. Mrs. Stripe suggested this project to us. During the year each girl had a Peanut Sister, a secret pal who was re- membered on birthda.y anniversary, Chistmas, etc. On February ninth the Girl R.eserves gave a one-act comedy entitled "What Husbands Don't Know," in chapel.

A total of 16 wins against 3 losses is the Way the Purple and White sharpshooters finished the season. A quartet of four veterans formed the nucelus of the team this season. They were Charles Hargesheimer, Barney Short, Willard Dougal and Vondale Taylor. As the season began Vondale Taylor our stellar center of last. year was forced from regular play because of an injury received in the fall base- ball games. Willard Dougal was then called on to carry the brunt of the center position. Don Knerr showed such rapid progress in the early practi- ces that he earned a starting position as left guard-and he held that posi- tion all season in a most capable manner. Robert Whitaker, flashy little long- shot artist, proved himself varsity timber and held down a regular berth at right guard all season. Charles Hargesheimer, Barney Short, and Willard Dougal lived up to expectations and played a bang-up brand of ball all year. Vondale Taylor, Gerald Reid, Earl DeLong, Eugene Taylor, and Karl Laem- mle were the other members of the Big Ten. Dead-Eye Barney Short won the distinction of being Van Wert Countys highest scorer for the season. ln 16 league games he scored a total of 191 points. Willard Dougal was close on his heels and finished fourth highest with 131 points., The Wildcats who received the coveted' "U" for their basketball efforts were: Barney Short, seniorg Charles Hargesheimer, senior: Willard Dougal. seniorg Don Knerr, senior, Robert Whitaker, juniorg Vondale Taylor, seniorg Gerald Reid, juniorg Karl Laemmle, senior.

WILDCAT BASEBALL At the close of a bleak fall season the Union Wildcat Baseball Team finished the first half of their fall and spring schedule with a record of three wins and one defeat. Our Wildcats of the sodded diamond are setting a fast pace in the Van Wert County League and are now in second place topped only by Tully-Convoy. This spring they should prove a real threat to other teams as they have their eyes set on Championship. With this thought in mind we say, "Come on Wildcats, tear 'em up."

We, of the Statf, see in it a goal attainedg you who have already trav- ersed this path may see in it customs set by you which are still worthy of pursuit for lahorg and you who are following us in the path may find in it a challenge for future endeavors. The Editors L DEDICATION To Miss Mary Bowers, who started her teaching career by giving the Class of 1940 its successful start in school, we hereby dedicate this first vol- ume of the 1940 WILDCAT. Through her never failing influence and en- couragement we have completed our career at Union School. WILDCAT "Success Crowns Patient Effort" These four words can and do hold a philosophy of life. They show that success is not to be measured in dollars and cents but that it means much more. It must be measured in terms of a goal set for oneself. It indicates that it can be accomplished by trying' and not without trying. The Senior Class, in choosing this motto, indicates its desire for success and shows that it realizes that honest patient effort is necessary. The best that We can Wish for each one in the class is the choice of a worthy goal in life and the attainment of this goal by patient effort. Paul G.
