We the Class of 1946, started our school career at a very young age. Since then
there have been many changes.
When we set out on the great sea of study our crew consisted of--George Beatty,
Martha Copp, Robert Gross, j'oAnn Mohler, Dorothy Metcalf, Manuel Mitchell, john Mc-
Graw, Charles Summer, Max Kingery, Wilma Pettay, and Mary Symons, who joined our
crew later in the voyage.
Our first years were spent trying to acquire all the knowledge possible, It proved
to be quite a struggle, but we managed to make the eighth grade up to standard.
Our Fresh.man year started with an enrollment of fifteen: Jaxnes Bridges, Barbara
Fowler, Robert Frazier, Wilda Gentis, Robert Gross, Patty Hewitt, Philip Hood. Robert
Johns, Juaneta Miller, Manuel lviitchell, JoAnn Mohler, Rosey Shelton, joseph Swope.
Beginning our Sophomore year we found our crew deminishing with the loss of james
Bridges, Philip Hood, Robert Johns, Joseph Swope, and the addition of a new member Cha-
rlotte Rude who hit the deck during the last semester.
As we set sail in our junior year a new member, Lindell Buroker, joined our crew.
This year we began in earnest to make and record history.
First carne our junior Class play, 'DON'T DARKEN MY DOOR,' which was presented
very successfully. As the year continued we were represented on the first squad in bas-
ketball by two members, Robert Gross and John McGraw.
With spring carne the junior-Senior Banquet. The table and surroundings were dec-
orated in green and white, and additional decorations of lavendar and gold. It was enjoyed '
by all. As the year ended all of us seemed to be very happy to think our next year would
be our last voyage at sea,
. During the summer of 1944- we lost two members: Barbara Fowler and Lindell Bur-
Those who will receive diplomas at the April Commencement are: Wilda Gentis,

We shall leave school wondering where our ship will anchor as we set sail on the
great sea, with our destination unknown.
Wherever our destination may be, we will always remember that 'Good Old Class
of 194-6,' and the many memories and swell times we had at Union High,
CLASS PROPHECY -
One evening, as I sat by the fire, Ibegan to think of radar. I became so interested
in it, that in my dreams I took a trip. Naturally my mind wondered back to the Union
Township School and the happy year of 1946. What had become of the 1946 Seniors and what
had they made of themselves?
My first stop along the highway was an antique shop. I was interested in antiques
and was attracted by the beautiful and odd china in the window. As I walked in, I saw a
farniliar face: I asked who she was. She said she was Wilda Gentis and had started this
shop about ten years ago, Her hobby had always been collecting dishes and various things.
The shop was located on 5th Avenue in New York City, She had a very interesting shop
and flourishing trade. As she was very busy and I had many other places to go, Iwent on
drifting toward the moon.
While gliding along, I saw a well-known naxne on a barn. The title was 'john Mc
Graw and Sons.' I stopped to inquire what John had been doing. Whe I opened the door,
four lively girls and five curly headed boys came running. John told me about his wife
and nine children. just as Iwas ready to continue on my way I noticed another large build-
ing, Iwas soon informed that it was a skating rink. It seemed that he and his wife and
children loved to skate so well, that they built one on his farm. Maybe you have heard of
'johnny's Skating Club.'
Continuing on my journey I saw a familiar figure playing in a yard. I ask if she
was Charlotte Rude, but Iwas mistaken, it was Charlotte's daughter. just at that mom-
ent Charlotte ca.rne to the door, she was the saxne friendly person. Ilearned that she had
married an old 'Flame' from Howard. She had two children, Nancy and Max jr., who were
then on the Quiz kids program at the new I. Q. station at Chicago. She WGS i!lfC1'C5f0d in
knowing about her class and asked me to keep her informed of any news that I might be
able to obtain.
Iwas getting deeper into Dreamland. As I was going over the Pacific, I found my-
self on a large island called Hawaii. Soon after I arrived, the new governor and his wife
carne to welcome me. It was none other than Joseph' Bryant and his wife the former Pat-
ty Hewitt. The Hawaiians informed me that they thought Patty was becoming as popular
as the former leading lady Mrs. Paul V, McNutt, Patty was hoping to stay for a long
time, she had enjoyed some interesting experiences.
Getting closer to the moon I came to Europe. ln Paris a large coliseum caught my
eye. There were several people quite excited over a newspaper article. For curiosity I
bought a paper. In big headlines: 'Woz-ld's Famous Bobcats Versus the European Famous
Bearcats.' In smaller type it had the lineup for the teams. Bob Gross was captain for the
Bobcats. It had a brief history of Bob. He had been playing with the team for many years.
The game was to be played that night. It was a 'thriller' to the last second. The Bobcats
won the game by Gross' famous last second field goal. Bob was crowned captain for the
all-astars. He had some very thrilling experiences that he told me. He was also interested
to know what had happened to his classmates.
I was very close to the moon and nearly out of Dreamland, when I turned on my tele-
vision radio. As the picture grew more visible I saw that it was JoAnn Mohler. She had
taken Cass Daley's place on the radio. She had become a famous actress on the stage
and radio. She now lived in Hollywood and owned a cattle ranch. I found that she was on
a tour and was planning to appear in person at Kokomo, Indiana and from there to Phlox.
I had now come to my journey's end.
- It seemed that on my trip I had drifted in so many different directions, just as Fate
had before scattered in the Class of 1946,
'CLASS WILL '

by bequeath my belongings in U. H. S. to my underclassmen. To Robert Helms I will my

the assembly providing Melvin still sits in his same seat. To some junior I will my a-
bilityto fill out work-books. I will my typing speed to Mary Jane Gross and my ability

To Mary Jane Gross I leave my typing book with the hope that her little finger will hit
'A' instead of 'Q' or 'Z' like mine does. Ileave my Physics book to Gene Murphy know-
ing that he will use it diligently. Last but not least my ability to get along with all my
teachers I leave to every boy and girl left in dear old Union High.

Union anticipated a good season since the second team of last year won practically
all games and all of them were back in school. Mr. Brown guided the team in Basketball
and had a most successful season.
Six straight games were won before a losseto Greentown. And in all the regular
season play only three games were lost.
Max Downing was out most of the year with a head injury in the Sharpsville game.
Sickness finally brought the tearn to a low tide for the Greentown game. They were not
back in trim for the Howard game and lost. The Converse game was a plain loss,
The team got a great deal of pleasure in winning from jackson both games of the
season. It just seemed like Jackson could not win from Union this year. 0
Gross and McGraw will graduate and cause a new arrangement of the team play for

Union started the season with much more promise than in previous years, With
most of the players of last year back on the squad the outlook appeared brighter.
A County League was organized in which each tea.m was to play four other schools.
This made an entirely different picture than in the past when the east end schools always
played each other two games each.
Forest Foland and Bobby Myers at the battery for Union. Gross at first base, M.
Myers at second, Murphy at short and Dovsming at third. In the field, Addison in left field
James Bess in Center and john McGraw in right. Theron Brown, Paul Risk and James
Hill were the utility men.
- james Bess was found to be ineligible and all games played by him were forfeited.
This caused Union to again be in the position of not winning a ball game for the season.
It is hoped that the boys on next years team will play summer ball and be ready for the
fall confer ence play.

TRACK AND FIELD
For the first time in several years Union took part in Track and Field events.
The County High Schools organized a County Track and Field Meet that took place near
the close of school.
Our tearn consisted of Seniors Don Spencer, junior Harrell, Howard Lord, Chris
Larnbg Sophomores, Max Downing, Forest Folandg Freshmen, Virgil Kepner, Melvin Myers
Gene Murphy, Robert Helms.
Since this was the first track meet for these boys, they did very well. Don Spencer
made second place in the Shot Put. Others in their events were in fourth place, just out-
side of winning points. The mile Relay team, Downing, Murphy, Kepner, and Helms won
second place with Greentown, in first place and Ervin in third place.
junior Harrell wa-s i.n the finals of the 120 yard High Hurdle but did not place in the
first three places for points. Spencer was in the 100 yard Finals but did not place in the
fir st three. Downing and Kepner ran the low hurdles but did not place in the final running.
Lord and Spencer failed to place in the trials but did not get into the finals.

The junior Class had successful play October 23. The name of the play was 'A Pair
of Country Kids.' The story took place at a little place called joggins junction where Mrs.
Starr conducted the Starr Hotel.
There were two paying customers Lucindy Appleby, looking for husband number oneg
and Susan Grimes looking for husband number two: Lucindy finally succeeded in getting
Ambrose Sneggins, one of the most comical characters of the play. Mrs. Starr had village
pest, 'Hi' who was the mischievous imp, and was always trying to get money enough for
he and 'Sis' to get hitched, Sis the maid-of-all-work at the Starr Hotel,
As the time goes on there are two men enter the scene. Albert Roomer tried to get
Lucindy's money. Arthur Roberts came to buy the hotel because he thought there was oil
on the place. Truthfully, there was no oilg Hi had spilled oil in the well. The play ends
happily even though Roberts finds himself outwitted by a 'pair of country kids'. There were
five screamingly funny comedy parts in this play and the comedy scenes were sure-fire
roars of continuous laughter.

The junior Class entertained the Seniors at Hotel Courtland on Saturday evening,
April 7. .
The grand march to the dining room was led by the junior Class President. After
the elaborate three-course dinner the prophecy of the Seniors was given. The Seniors
then willed their cherished school treasures to various members of the junior Class and
faculty. Following the toast the juniors entertained their guests by attending a mid-night
Sh0W- held at the Sipe theatre. -
A farce comedy in three acts presented by a Senior Class of 194-6. From start to
finish was a hilarious carnival of fun and incomparable entertainment. The action of the
play began when jeff Jordon from out of the West, suddenly appears on the horizon of his
widowed sister-in-law, Isobel Jordon, and Kathi and Bettes. Uncle jeff, is a crusty old
bachelor, supposedly doomed with heart disease. When he finally emerges and views civ-
ilization o'er, he is shocked to pieces at the manners and dress of young Arnerica. Uncle
jeff thinking he would drop dead in a few weeks informs his young nieces that he would ma-
ke them his heirs providing they stop jitterbugging, lengthen their frocks, .and not have any
dates until they are eighteen. After disobeying their Uncle's wishes Jeff informs them that
he intends to change his will in favor of the two daughters of his old sweetheart who jilted
him in his youth-Dora Devine.
One of the funniest characters in the play--is the mournful maid. Lucindy Peck from
Cabbage Neck. Lucindy adores going to funerals and discussing diseases.

JUNIOR- CLASS PLAY BIG SUCCESS
'Don't Darken My Door' was presented on October 24, 194-4. The scene took place
in the living room of Roger Kent's country home, in midsummer. When 6. girl read too
many romances she didn't want just a plain man, The writer of the romance books tried
to repair the damage her books had done, Under her direction, Tom and Alec were soon
spouting romantic speeches and making a hit with the girls. There were strikingly funny
scenes as Tom was coached on love-making, and two fluttery spinsters from the neighbor-
hood kept a thrilled eye on the romantic going-on. The final caxne with an elopement in
which everybody had a hand, and Alec and Poppy played a serie-comic scene.

Once each month the students of Union saw a great deal of activity by the news pa-
per staff. They saw them feverishly rushing about to get the news together or get the pa-
pers sent out on time. 'Room 5 on the day the paper was sent out resembled a busy news-
paper office with typewriters clicking, papers being folded and starnps placed on them.
The students anxiously awaited the paper to see what had been written about them. Some
had a few anxious moments wondering if certain news was printed---some were disappoin
ted and some were pleased,

THE YEAR BOOK
This year's staff did not have any previous experience in building an annual. Of
course, it waited very late to get started.
One day a representative of the company who published the annual called and took
the four senior girls on an all-day trip to surrounding towns selling advertising. They
had a very successful day as the advertising in this year book will tell you.
Pictures for the annual were taken and then the task of complying the book started.
Work-work-work was the order of the day,
Next year's staff will have some experienced 'members and the book should be out A
e ar ly.
Each year the member of the graduating class to have the highest average of grades
for the four years receives a medal. This is the medal presented at commencement.
Last year Rosemary Mohler earned the award. The class of 194-4 had Marietta
Smith Wimmer as the one receiving high honors.
This year Charlotte Rude will have the high average and will receive the award,
Each year several scholarship examinations are offered to graduates of high school
who are in the upper one-third of the class.
This year Charlotte Rude took the Pepsi- Cola Test which provides a four year scho-
lar ship in the college of her choice if she wins the test. Charlotte also took -the State Scho
