The F. H. A. activity calendar was brimful this year, beginning with its installation of officers and initiation of new members. Also, in October, local officers and delegates attended the House of Delegates meeting in Mahomet. The girls sent a Christmas gift box to "World Friendship for Children" in November, in addition to one they donated to a needy family here in the community in December. This month really kept the homemakers hopping as they presented a pro- gram and gifts of candy made by sophomore classes to the Champaign County Home and went on a caroling party following the regular meeting. Besides many resolutions, the new year brought a doll and hobby show in January, and a "degree" service. The Future Homemakers of America is an international organization and has a large member- ship throughout the nation. But let's get back to our own school which is a small but essential part of this great organization. In spring a young lady's fancy turns to thoughts of new clothes-some of which were made in home economics classes and modeled for mothers by daughters at a fashion show. The making of tray favors for a local hospital, besides a speaker from a foreign country, topped off the successful year. F Tllllll Hlllllllllllilllllll 0F illllllllllll FUTURE FARMER 0E AMERICA Each month brought a meeting and activities chucked full of work, play, and honor for the "fu- ture farmers" lwho have a IOOWJ membership of all vocational agriculture students here at "Unity"Il For example, listen to this-first place fat stock judging team, third place dairy team, and third place qrain team. The boys attended a leadership training school with the principals and agriculture teachers. Among other things, a program of work was entered in the Sectional Contest, Livestock International of Chi- cago was visited, two state Farmer Degrees were awarded, and delegates were sent to the National F.F.A. Convention at Kansas City. The annual Farm and Home Week was attended, a "team" com- peted in the F. F. A. Parliamentary Procedure con- test, several members participated in the State Livestock Judging Contest, and delegates learned a great deal at the state convention held at the Uni- versity of Illinois.

IHRL ' Fall of l95O found the 32-voice mixed chorus singing "Cindy, Get Along Home," and the girls' glee club echoing, "Oh, Dear, What Can the Mat- ter Bel" Mrs. Lindley had a ready answer-not enough tenors and basses! However, second se- mester one influential senior boy recruited two basses and five tenorsl Maybe it was just a coin- cidence that those personality girls, "Unity's "double-sextet," changed their tune from "Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa' My Hair" to "Tea for Two!" Highlights of vocal musical activities for the year were the "Folk Lore Christmas Cantata" pre- sented in candlelight by the mixed chorus, the Christmas "Assembly" by the girls' glee club, con- tests in March and April, and the County Music GLEE CLUB Festival. Other outstanding events were Open- house, "All-State" in November, the girls' glee club caroling trip to the county home, the "Rocketet" going high-brow at the University "Dames' Club", the "Double-Sextet" at the senior play, at Lions Club in Tolono, at Boosters' Club at Philo, at the County Boy Scout Council's meeting, etc, always singingl singing! singingl Not to be overlooked was the girls' glee club Christmas party-a big success. The organizations showed initiative and a con- genial spirit among their members which resulted in fine cooperation. The vocal groups were for- tunate to have several outstanding solo voices which were heard frequently during the year. All in all, it was a successful "gold star" l95O-5l for Unity's mixed chorus and girls' glee club.

What's behind this seemingly simple procedure in taking a picture? Ask this question of a "Camera Clubber" and a torrent of technical termin- ology will be your reply. This past year the only club in Unity Senior High School without offi- cers, the school's newest organization-the Camera Club-was formed. Mr. Walker was its sponsor and in addition to five student members, it boasts of having Mr. Greer's name on the membership scroll. Most of the members were inexperienced photographers, so they planned to order films covering various aspects of their hobby such as light- ing, printing, and developing. Plans were outlined for making a motion picture if possible,Why, for all we know, any one of these amateur photog- raphers may be a budding Cecil B .

This familiar cry rang through the halls of U.H.S. last October when the eager G.A.A. members hiked ten miles in two hours! December 14th brought initiation ceremonies lformal and informali and a chili supper in the gym. All this with basketball, volleyball, deck tennis, ping pong, softball, bowling, swimming, and ice skating provided quite a hustle-bustle schedule of sports activity for the thirty-some members of the Girls' Athletic Associ- ation. Commonly referred to as G.A.A., this is an or- ganization for the purpose of promoting good health, character, sportsmanship, and wholesome recreation. A member of G.A.A. must be a good sport, that is, able to get along with people, able to accept re- sponsibility, and able to smile whether she's winning or losing. The object of G.A.A. is to stimulate interest and participation in girls' athletic activities. lt is a state club in which thousands of girls from various high , schools in lllinois take part in activities. Camps and play days are held so that the girls from different schools can get together, meet each other, and have a wonderful time making these new friends. There are also state tournaments such as the basketball tele- graphic tourneys. The point system is used to encourage good health. The girls keep records on health cards of the activ- ities in which they participate outside of G.A.A. Points are given for these. Three different letter awards are given: sophomore, iunior, and senior. Above all, the G.A.A. member must manifest good sportsmanship. Any girl who wants to be a member is welcome because G.A.A. wants to extend its privi- leges to all girls at U.H.S. Worms???

STANDING: Don Russell-Vice-President, Jerry Harden Bob Bond, Don Grothe, Dave O'Neill. "The meeting will now come to order!" was the familiar entreaty of Jean Cole, senior, and president of this year's "council," With this, the Student Coun- cil, made up of nine members-two sophomores, two juniors, and two seniors elected by their respective classes, gathered around their president, a senior elected by the entire student body. Bob Bond and Alice Hartman were chosen by their sophomore classmates, and Don Grothe and Dave O'NeiII were the juniors, while the "wheels" named Mark McCloskey and Jerry Harden to be their repre- sentatives. The purpose of the council is to better school pol- icies, to establish and enforce school regulations, and to solve minor problems. It is representative of all the students and attempts to listen sympathetically lwith an ear toward improvement!! to all the griev- ances of the student body. Wilma might have included the following in her secretary's report for the school year. Early in the year, the president and vice-president attended a Student Council Convention where they shared ideas with councils of other schools. Later, as many mem- bers as could went with Mr. Greer to participate in a Student Council meeting at University High School. They obtained many helpful suggestions for making omg Unity High School Council as functional as pos- si e. Three specific achievements of this past year were: the purchase of records for the school, and two ter- rific dances--held at Halloween and Homecoming. "lf there are no additions and corrections, the minutes are approved as read. And with no further business-the meeting is adjourned"--for the year l950-l95l! 35 JEAN COLE President llllll ITY LETTERME ' CL ll Left to right-FIRST ROW: Mr, Barnes, Mr. Henson-Sponsors.

"Something new has been added!" ln fact, nine new members were added to the Varsity Lettermen's Club at its annual initiation last winter. This club is somewhat different from others, because to be eligible for mem- bership, one must have earned a varsity letter in some sport. lt is the ambition of every boy to become a member. With the able leadership of sponsors Mr. Barnes and Mr. Henson, the boys set up a tentative constitution and held their initiation. Early in the years, the boys had a hayride--complete with such es- sentials as hayracks, "dates," food tcider, wieners, and all the accessories-pickles, mustard, and marshmallowsll, and group singing accompanied by a ukelele. lt was quite a successul affair. Letters were awarded at the annual football banquet in December where these fellows showed their prowess in eating.-as well as in sports, This club is a staunch supporter of clean sportsmanship. The members of the Varsity Lettermen's Club try to set good examples for the rest of the boys in school. Background-Letrermen's Club.

The 1951 basketball season found the Rockets unpredictable, winning from good ball clubs, then almost losing to mediocre teams. For instance, the boys barely defeated St. Joe one time and then came out on top over such squads as Mahomet and Arthur. The team suffered a loss in losing their "spark plug," Don Grothe, when he was forced to leave the Rockets because of an automobile accident during mid-season. Hank Bray readily stepped in as a regular and improved with experience and practice throughout the season. Schweighart's timely pivot shots and faking coupled with Thrash's one- handed push shots showed a team of potentialities for next year. The latter's ability at driving toward the basket was also a great asset to the team. Coaches Henson and Barnes feel that the i952 squad looks promising since they're losing only one man-a senior-Bernie Grove. The addition of sev- eral outstanding sophomores from the "2nd team" most likely can be an- ticipated, also. 45 y! 3: ho .L 'QM P 4 W '3-'fi wdvg-Ava ,K 'E 4 m 5 H l it JL ,,LV 9 fa 3.
