SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Bubbling over with enthusiasm and very determined to prove to the fac-
ulty and upper classmen that "a lot of good things come in small packages"
were the young ducklings who entered University High School in the fall of
l933. After making their presence felt by joining the many activities of
the school, these wise little birds decided they should let their many plans
lie dormant for a brief period in order to appease the older members of the
As sophomores the class elected Ed Luckey, president, Marjorie Rowe,
vice-president, Ted Smith, secretary-treasurer, and Jane Hall, council rep-
resentative to serve them inthe babyhood days.
Forfeiture of the right to have a party for themselves alone was an un-
heard fo thing to the sophomores, so on December fifteenth they excluded
all juniors and seniors and reveled in their privacy, in ,the fir-bedecked au-
As the "lowly sophomores" of the year before became the "worthy
juniors," they returned two former class officers to the same positions. Ed
Luckey again served as president, Norman Lyman, who was later succeeded
by James Rodman served as vcie-president, and Jane Hall assumed the
double burden of secretary-treasurer and council representative.
Inasmuch as tradition-breaking grew into the favorite indoor sport of
the class of '36, no undue criticism was directed to the class as they pre-
sented the first junior cafeteria to relieve temporary financial stress. The
small class had difficulty in feeding the large groups of upper and lower
Soon the class presented an all-school dance, the Hades Hobble, at which
balloons floated, artificial flames flared, and pop fizzed.
One tradition, however, was nobly honored. In April, the juniors played
hosts and hostesses to the honored class of l935 in the refreshing atmos-
phere ofa night at a desert oasis.
Returning to fill the role of lordly seniors in their last year at Uni High,
the class of '36, now full grown ducklings, continued to gather laurels. Nor-
man Holt, president, James Rodman, vice-president, Ray Houghton, secre-
tary-treasurer, and Maxine Glad, council representative, were chosen to lead
the ducklings in their final high school year. The senior girls established an
enviable record in Girls' League work. The class of '36 had the honor of being
the only class to win first prize for the Doernbecher Doll Display for three
consecutive years, and the boys conributed to athletics and other school ac-
ln May, the seniors presented "The Thirteenth Chair," made jplans for
graduation, and left the school to the frolicking of juniors and sophomores
on the appointed Senior ,Skip Day as they motored to Triangle Lake. With
the final dance at the senior ball on June third, but lingering memories were
left of the years at U. H. S. as the graduates left to travel the unknown paths
- . 'i 2 4 ,aj 723: ii
May l l and l2 the class of i936 presented its chosen senior play, "The
Thirteenth Chair," in the school auditorium. The play was presented for tra-
ditional, recreational and commercial purposes.
Under the direction of Mr. George Batterson of the University drama
department, the cast was chosen in February ,and heavy rehearsals were im-
The play, a mystery, was selected on adaptability to the stage, and the
prospective audience. Seventeen members made up the large cast.
In order of appearance the playincluded Jane Hall as Helen, George
Craig as Will, Anna Marie Huffaker as Mrs. Crosby, Harold Olney as Mr.
Crosby, Ed Luckey as Mr. Wales, Charles Fox as Philip Mason, Bob Burley
as Howard Standish, Howard Elliott as Braddish Trent, Phoebe Breyman as
Grace Standish, Catherine Murdock as Mrs. Erskine, Beth Winsted as Miss
Eastwood, Betty Jane Thompson as Helen Trent, Warren Lomax as Pollock,
Jean Cramer as Madame Rosalie La Grange, Bill Rosson as Inspector Dono-
hue, Ted Smith as Sergeant Dunn, and Maurice Hunter as Detective Doolan.
The technical department of the play was supervised by Mr. William
Cottrell, drama teacher, who used his class as his staff. Norman Holt was
business manager for the production.
As a great wave of confident sophomores swept into University High
School in the fall of l934, the veterans of the honored school, the juniors
and seniors, soon took the situation well in hand. Frequent doses of the foun-
tain, which has seen its last days, and a large dose of weed pulling soon re-
duced the rebellious class into submission.
ln spite of this difficulty, they became organized and passed the year
under the guidance of Don MacLaren, president, Ethel Etter, vice-president,
Warren Smith, secretary-treasurer, and Priscilla Walsh, class representative.
Mrs. Mosher and Mr. Eberhart, likewise, helped guide the class over the
The lower classmen quickly became a part of their school. A sophomore
party, exclusively a get acquainted affair for the class, as well as a picnic in
the spring, were the major projects attempted in the sophomore year.
Most of the sophomores became juniors the next year and those that
passed on found more freedom awaiting them .As the junior class they ,se-
lected their leaders to see them through the year, James Pickett was ,chosen
president, Eldon Platt, vice-president, Bill Graham, secretary-treasurer, and
Marjorie Theda, class representative.
ln the interclass football tournament, the boys defeated both the seniors
and sophomores. However, the boys alone did not deserveall the credit for
a successful year as many of the girls became members of clubs and other
Social events were also accomplished and were acclaimed a success. ln
the fall a Junior Movie was given to raise necessary money for,the annual
Junior-Senior Prom, given in honor of the graduating class in March. As ,a
climax to a successful year, a picnic was held and was enjoyed ,by all who
The class of l937 has enjoyed two exceptionally successful year, and has
already begun looking forward to an even more successful senior year.
In September, l935, the ambitious class of l938 rode the Golden Tide to
shore. Warnings by upper classmen of University High's fatiguing subjects
and abusive treatment were turned into inspiration by the spirited group.
High spirits, contagious to upper classmen, and clever ideas immediately
carried out marked the class as a key spoke in the year's wheel of progress.
ln January a belated Silly Symphony Sophomore Shuffleiwas held in the
University High School exclusively for sophomores. Clever animated cartoons
drawn by sophomore art students were used for decorations. Aside from the
dancing in the auditorium,igames in the library gave amusement to those
not desiring or craving diversion from the provided dancing.
Leaving this, their own social event, behind, the sophomores settled down
to tasks of scholarship and activities. Working on term papers and studying
for exams, publishing a Uni Hi-Lights, producing plays for assembly pre-
sentation, and engagement in otheriactivities occupied their hours.
The class elected the following officers to guide them through their in-
itial year: President, Dick Smith, vice-president, Richard Barger, secretary-
treasurer, Ted Harmon, and council representative, Jean Graham. Advisers
to the class were Miss Frances Frazier and Mr. Shailer Peterson.
A picnic as a climax to the year's activity was planned for May.
As the class of l936 moved on, the sophomores, class of I938, eagerly
awaited the year ahead when they would become more superior in the exalted
role of juniors,

No member of the University High School student body November 22,
l936, will ever be able to, or want to, forget the eventful night of this date
when University High's squad of l7 football players brought fame to them-

School, 3l - I3 in downpour of rain.
Just to insure your memorylll-
The rally in the morning.
Booth says, "l know who'll be fight'n' ,the hardest."
lThe student body silently prays and hopesl
Then in the evening the football xboys met. ln the dressing room they
were silent-hopeful-anxious. They had hopes that there was one team
in the state which could do what no other high school in the state had done
-beat one of the best teams ever to come out of Eugene High School, U.H.S.
Slowly thoseylast steps were treked across the graveyard in its solemn
stillness. Into the grandstand walked the last straying man, and the stage
was set-set for the most sincere proclamations that any team ever made
-the proclamation that one team must win or lose. But University High
School was NOT going to LOSE.
On to the field for the final warmup.-lnto the dressing room for the
final instructions and encouragement from Maury Van Vliet.-Again to the
field for the game you all remember too well. Thirteen boys made,history
for November 22, l936, and another, Max Simpson, wished that he could
have helped as he sat on the sidelines suffering a broken arm.

its thoughts to being a service organization for the school.

around the school were leading activities.
A Golden U "pay assembly" was sponsored to give prestige to the de-
pleted treasury. Features were a "Beef Ballet," three skits, a German band,

The orchestra gave entertainment at student body entertainments and
played for the Girls' League Parents' Night.
Although it was one of the smallest bands in the state contest, if not the
smallest, the University High,School band won statewide recognition by win-
ning first place in the class "C" division of state bands. Generous credit for
this achievement should be given to John,Stehn, director.
Two members placed in the solo contests. Bill Rosson won third in the
trombone division, and Phoebe Breyman won a tie for second in the clarinet
The band gave frequent student body entertainments, and played at some

five new members. The purpose of the organization is to create a scholastic
interest in sophomores and juniors in the two years between the ninth and
Howard Hall was president of the organization for the duration of its
existence this year. A joint banquet with the N. H. S. was the principal activ-

president, Jim Bennett as vice-president, and James Kroblen as secretary-
The R. O. T. C. rifle range was obtained every Tuesday and Thursday af-
ternoon for practcie, but during the spring term the club was handicapped
as the range was being remodeled. Next year the club hopes to have a range
of its own.
The club became a member of the National Rifle Association, permitting
them to participate in national contests.
An infant club of University High School is the Radio Guild. It was organ-
ized in the fall to help girls understand and overcome their own personal
ethical difficulties. The club derived its name from a radio program to which

The officers elected were Anna Marie Huffaker, president, and Leota
A new organization, promoted by the student council, made its appear-

Officers of ,the Pep Club were Ed Luckey, president, Beth Winsted, vice-
president, Jane Anderson, secretary, Anna Marie Huffaker, treasurer, and
Archie Zarewski and Alice Giustina, sergeants-at-arms.
A swimming party for members of the club was planned as the year's
Ambitious members of the Girls' League were kept more than busy carry-
ing out the full program planned for the year. At the Big and iLittle Sister
Dance held at the beginning of school all girls became acquainted with the
school and each other. Once more homes of school members were ransacked
for the rummage sale. Early in November the student body enjoyed a good
meal at the Girls' League Cafeteria. At the Doernbecher tea the school was
once more overrun with cloth animals of every form and color. For the formal
held in January, the auditorium was transformed into a winter wonderland
and couples danced amid ,snow flakes and silvery winter scenes. Although
Girls' League Day was held on Friday thirteenth, Lady Luck smiled broadly,
especially on the sophomore class which walked off withethe cup. On that
same evening the first Parents' Night in the school history was sponsored by
the League for,the purpose of receiving eight dozen cups from the mothers.
In the spring the traditional teas for Eugene High, Springfield High, and
Roosevelt Junior High were held. Late in May the annual Mother and Daugh-
ter Banquet was held at Gerlinger Hall.
At the last assembly President Dorothy Denslow, Vice-President Mary
Booth, Secretary Norma Rose Evans and Treasurer Jane Hall turned over
the reins of government to the incoming officers.
GIRLS' ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
Intramural competition this year included basketball, swimming, tennis
and hiking. ln two basketball games with Eugene High, the Uni-Hi girls won
a like number of victories. ,Several hikes and swimming parties were held.
Officers for the year included Betty iMae Lind, president, Alice Giustina, vice-
president, Beth Winsted, secretary, and Anna Marie Huffaker, custodian.
Leaders of sports were Jean Cramer, basketball, Lois Onthank, swimming,
Mary Booth, tennis, and Billie Crawford, hiking.
Under Jane Hall as editor, the Uni-Hi Lights made an immediate appear-
ance this year. In order to gain the backing of the student body, the staff
decided on an early edition, and completed their plans by publishing a paper
in the first school week. This was volume l, number I of the Uni-Hi Lights,
the name chosen to replace the outmodedrname, "Code"
The first news extra at U. xH. S. was successful, published following the
football victory over Eugene High.
Under the expert guidance of Make-up Editor Maxine Glad, the paper
took on the aspects of a finished lproduct, being made up in double page
form with headlines made from a purchased set of headliners,
Norman Holt, business manager, kept the paper self supporting without
the use of advertising.
The Boys' and Girls' Science Clubs combined at the beginning of the year
and elected Walter Achterman as president and Lois Onthank secretary-
Throughout the year the members devoted themselves to private projects
which occupied all of their spare time. The projects were varied in nature
and proved very interesting.
Regular meetings were held the last part of the year to make and prepare
plans for an active year in i936-l937.
THE CRYSTAL GAZER
The crystal gazer sat and gazed into his glistening ball-
The Figures shown within were clear, although so very small,
And memorydhad not played him tricks, although twenty years had
For he knew all of them to be his high school senior class,
He saw he face of Betty Jean Van Atta, fender queen,
Manufacturing dentless fenders. Twenty years had passed between,
But he knew dauntless Winsted with her calm and fearless look,
As she put down rules of etiquette within her latest book,
Of Donna's truant officers, none better were than Cook,
Who chased unruly children from the grassy Dale and brook.
A leading lady now appears, Juanita Williams grown

Don Stevenson was posing then as "Johnny Saturday,"
Evangelist for twenty years, at last he'd learned to pray.
In HarIem's blackest depths, a night club flourished well and grew.
'Twas run by Phoebe Breyman, as the crystal gazer knew.
A part-LimevSanta Claus was Norman Holt, in Marshal Fields,

She was, as she had ever been, the daring big game Hunter.

He went quickly then to Podunk into Shirley's Beauty Box,
Owned and run by Shirley Currin, covering a city block.
Then the crystal gazer thought that surely glasses he must need,
For he saw a Greyhound bus that had as driver, Danny Read.
Within a courtroom dark and drear, on trial for bigamy,
Bill Williams sat, with downcast face. In ever-gay Paree,
Bob Beckman was a ladies' man, a hopeless play-boy case,
The chronic laugh upon his lips, the smile upon his Face.
Carl Petersen so sorry felt for pepole who drink cokes,
That he invented hole-less straws so that they wouldn't choke.
And Rose-nose Ray, the Houghton boy, the next in line was seen.
He was the celebrated coach of Alcatraz' golf team.
A Burley Bob he saw this time, a master of the dance,
YVith Monte Carlo's ballet russe, he held one in a trance.
Ted Smith a famous cook in Greece had now at last become,
And chicken a la Ted had never failed to get quite done.
George Craig as a brain specialist the gazer then could see,
In a flea clinic spending all his time and energy.
Virginia Hen-rke'd been his nurse, but long ago having left
Eloping with a handsome flea, and leaving George bereft.

While June Smith, the lovely matron in a lowly foundling home,
Mothered all the darling infants, wishing they were all her own.

Feeding chickens in the garden, while she watered with a hose,
Stood-Marge Clark. Though with others he had tried to be quite
He was so surprised a Marge he gave her all ofi this one verse.
The crystal gazer then passed on, and found among the pills
The Healy girl, inventing Healing ointment for one's ills.
The greatest circulation in the lowapriced field of cars
Was held by one make only-that of Manufacturer Bowers.
The place of that great novelist, Mary Roberts Rinehart,

Delighting all the mammas, while she drove the kiddies wild.
While Mr. Soward was, in his Art, the champion of the land?
He'd lift his voice to call the hogs, and make them understand.

Margaret Rankin then had made her place in social life.
Of a high rankin' army man she was the gracious wife.
Charles Fox was one for whom the Fates had done a curious thing,
For he held a position as song leader at Sing-Sing.
Going by the name of "Mitzi Miffleyu on Broadway,

Then caught the crystal gazer's eye. He then saw, hard at work,
Ed Luckey, as he practiced For the talking marathon,
And the people who had lived near him, far, far away had gone.
Coach of knitting teams at Harvard, where she'd been for twenty

The divot-diggers of University High had a good chance for the state
title this year by virtue of seasonal wins over the outstanding teams of the
state, but at the time the annual went to press, the state meet had not been
held and the fate of the team could not be seen in the crystal ball.
During the season, the Tide defeated opponents from Milwaukie, Oregon
City, Salem, Eugene, Corvallis, and Albany. Bill Rosson, captain. led the as-
sault on the enemy with John Hulten, LIoyd'Omlid, Erling Omlid and Ray
Houghton completing the squad, which distinguished itself on many courses
of the state.
T RAC K
With only two lettermen returning and last year's leading point-getter
lost by graduation, Coaches Bob Parke and Roland Rourke were faced with
a tough situation. Jensen ,and O'Reilly were only returning lettermen, but
a larger number of prospects than usual turned out, and a creditable team
Meets scheduled were the relay meet at Cottage Grove, the Willamette
Valley meet at Corvallis, a triangular ,meet with Corvallis and Eugene High
here, the district meet and the state meet.
By defeating Eugene High in an upset victory, the Golden Tide gridders
turned an unsuccessful "percentage" season into the,most successful season
in the history of the sport at the school. Statistically the team lost 4, tied l,
and won 2. Although the losses outweighed the victories, the team was the
topic subject of the state sport public discussion following the Axemen
Prospects for next ,season are good, although nine regulars graduate:
Walt Rush, Don Brace, Marion Mann, Harry Johnson, Jack Cady, Captain
Fred Booth, Ellroy Jensen, Max Simpson, and Dan Read.
This loss will be keenly felt, but with Captain-elect Al Taylor, Maurice
Hunter, RodfLewman, Clinton Mann, Willie Palanuk, Harry Spence, and
Warren Smith returning, the nucleus of another fine team is available.
Maury Van Vliet, ex-Oregon star, and Bill Kenna, ex-O. S.C, luminary,
assisted by Ray Hendrickson, athletic director, coached the team. Archie
Zarewski was manager for the season.
University High's sole bid for fame during the basketball season this
year was that the team had the unique,experience of playing against four
teams which later entered the tournament, one of which won the tournament.
During the season the Tiders played Ashland, Roseburg lwhom they de-
featedl, Corvallis, and Bellfountain, all of whom later played in the Salem
The basketball squad finished in fifth place this year, one notch higher
than the team last season. The team won six and lost eight in league play.
Prospects for the I936-37 season are encouraging with only two regulars,
Bill Rosson and Ed O'Reilly, and a reserve, Ray Houghton, lost by graduation.
Rod Lewman, Gordon Bailey, Clinton Mann, Paul Muller Warren Smith, and
Willie Palanuk are lettermen returning, Dan Read, Marion Mann, and Jack
Cady were lost to the squad at mid-year after earning their letters in the
first half of the campaign by the eligibility count.
Arne Lindgren and Ray Hndrlckson coached the team, Mahlon Pengra
was the team manager, and Bill Rosson was elected.honorary captain at the
Lack of seasoned pitchers was the chief lament when the springtime
sport rolled around this spring. Lettermen returned to every position in the
infield except the chucker's post.
Coach Jack Woodard soon filled this vacancy by shifting Bill Rosson from
first to that position and filling the first sack vacanacy with Gordon Bailey.
Alton Baker filled the need for a -southpaw pitcher, and the chances were
for a prosperous horeshide year at U, H. S., in their competition in the newly
formed Greater Willamette Valley League.
Under the new set-up, games were scheduled with Junction City, St.
Mary's, Corvallis, Eugene, Springfield and Lebanon.
Returning lettermen were Bill Rosson, Tom Taylor, Willie Palanuk, Tam
Mills, and Bob Marshall. Fred Waller acted as baseball manager.
The mermen of UniversityfHigh were faced with lack of competition this
year as other schools dropped the sport of swimming for financial reasons,
Only two high schools in the state were left for the Tide to compete with. Of
these, Eugene twice took the count by a wide margin, and April l the Tide
mermen .splashed out a 46-29 victory over Salem to retain the state cham-
The team dropped two non-conference meets, a close one to Vancouver,
and to the strong O. S. C. rook team, 48 to 27. ln the annual Amateur Ath-
Ietic Indoor Meet in Portland, the team placed third.
Captain "Chuck" Wiper added to his Iaurels by breaking all known state
records in the 22O in the meet against Salem in the time of 21255.
Lettermen forthe year were Ellroy Jensen, Ralph Lafferty, Max Green,
Charles Fox, senior, and Captain Wiper, Warren Smith, AI Taylor, Gerald
Heustis, Ralph Heustis, and Dick Smith, returning.
Leonard Scroggin, varsity spring ace, was coach for the season, giving
him two consecutive state championships.
Only one letterman was available to the racquet wielders at the begin-
ning of the season, but several prospects showed promise, and prospects were
for a successful season.
Matches were scheduled with Eugene, St. Mary's, Roseburg, Corvallis,
and Salem. Eugene was defeated in the team's first match, before publication
of the Duckling.
Eldon Platt was the sole returning letterman, while Estley Schick, Ed
