HISTORY OF UNITY PUBLIC SCHOOL
Our first log schoolhouse, consisting of a one room
plan, was erected in 1874. At the time, it was
sufficient for the few pupils, and Mr. H. L. Jacobitz
was the first teacher. He was succeeded by Mary
Eastman and she by I. J. Austin, respectively.
It was I. J. Austin, who started the two room system,
with four lower elementary grades in one room.
Later, in the year of 1885, John R. Salter, graduate
of the University of Wisconsin, started our first
High School. His first graduating class consisted
of the following: Fred Vaughan, John Fremont, Arthur
Ransom, Jennie Cook, Worden Cook, Calvin Burton, and
In 1890, a fire caused by several pupils playing
with matches in the woodshed destroyed the school-
house. After a short time a new one was constructed,
being much better equipped, but soon it was too
Small- Our present school was built in 1911.
S C H O U L J A N I T O R
This school year, we welcomed a new janitor to our
school ---- Clarence Edblom. Clarence is taking the
place of Albert Weiland who passed away last summer.
Clarence is well liked by everyone and keeps himself
busy keeping the school clean.

In the year of 1941, twenty-five bewildered Freshies
trudged up the steps of Unity High to take their
seats in the Freshman row.
Five of these Freshies became frightened and soon
left us: they were Clifford Rineheart, Orville Domer,
Theresa Shrieber, Milton Dommer, and Duane Landwher.
After enduring an initiation party given by the
Sophmores, we became full fledbed members of the High
School. Although we furnished much amusement to the
upper classmen, we.had a high scholastic standing and
a great interest in outside activities. Our Class
officers were: Orville Van Sleet, President: Joyce
Bauer, Vice President: and Delores Mews, Secretary
In September, 1942, we entered U. H. S. as Sophmores.
Eva Jean Lang failed to return, but with the addition
of Donald Hederer from Marshfield and Robert Evert
from Spencer we had a class of twenty-one members.
We enjoyed giving the Wgreen Freshiesn their initi-
ation. Again we contributed members to band, chorus,
basket-ball and forensics.
After the first semester Joyce Bauer left us. Our
class officers were: Robert Ewert, President: Orville
Van Sleet, Vice President: and Shirley Larson
Secretary and Treasurer.
As Juniors,1n 1943, we were joined by Eva Jean Lang
from Colby. Later Beverly Colby, Shirley Larson,
Eleanore Greening, Alvina Bauer, and Donald Hederer
left us. Delores Mews became a member of the Senior
Class of '44.
we elected the following Class officers: President,
Wayne Salter: Vice President, Edward Mews: Secretary
and Treasure, Mable Schultz.
In April we gave our Class play entitled nAn American
is Bornu under the direction of our class adviser Urs.
Olson. It proved to be a great success.
We participated in the Junior-Senior Ball, Band,
Forensics, and Athletics with a good deal of interest.
Last fall we returned to Unity H1 again to finish
our last year of school. Eva Jean Lang failed to
return and Robert Ewert left shortly.
We elected as our Class President, Wayne Salterg Vice
President, Orville Van Sleetg and Secretary and
Treasurer, Mable Schultz.
In November Edward Mews left us to enter the services
of Uncle Sam.
In the spring we gave our Class Play entitled 'Motner-
in-Law Blues under the direction of Mr. Swan our
Class advisor. We gave our Prom May 4, 1945. Both
proved to be a great success.

We the class of 1945, in ten individual and distinct
parts, being about to pass out of this sphere of
education, in full possession of a crammed mind, well
trained memory, and almost superhuman understanding,
do make and publish this, our last will and testament,
hereby revoking and making void all former wills or
promises by us at any time heretofore made, or mayhap,
carelessly spoken, one to the other, as the thought-
less wish of an idle hour.
And first we do direct that our funeral services shall
be conducted by our friends and well-wishers, our
guardians for so long, only asking, as the last
injunction of the dying, that the funeral be carried
on with all the dignity and pomp that our worth, our
merit, our attainments, and our positions as Seniors
of 'grave and reverend mien,' must certainly have
As to such estate as it has pleased the Fates and our
own strong hands and brains to win for us, we do
dispose of the same as follows:
We give and bequeath to the dear faculty, who have
been our instructors in all the wisdom of the ages, a
sweet and unbroken succession of restful nights and
peaceful dreams. No longer need they lie awake through
the long watches of the night to worry over the
uncertainty of whether this one is doing her night work,
or that one will have his mathematics in the morning
class, or the other one will remember every iron-clad
rule of compositional techinque in the preparation of
her essay. It has been a hard strain on them, for
Seniors are said to be at all times and under all
conditions difficult to manage. But they have all done
their duty, and verily, now they shall have their well-
To the class of 1946, we bequeath our humor,
intelligence, and seats in the assembly.

of paper, wade of gum, and any additional knowledge we
have failed to obtain from our drivers educational

To the freshman we leave our Senior dignity--may they
uphold it forever in spite of their natural light
mindedness and irresponsibility.

I, Elaine Ibmer, will my cheerleading position to Betty

ability to get "Ms" to June Schultz.
