CLASS OF 1937
September of 1934 brought to University High another group of sophomores. Like
all good little ducklings they pursued activities and made themselves known.
In their infancy they chose Don lWacLaren to lead them as class president. Ethel
Etter was vice-president: Warren Smith, secretary-treasurer, and Pat Walsh, class
representative. Mrs. Mosher and Mr. Eberhart served as advisers.
The annual Sophomore Shuffle was held in the Christmas season. Spring found
the sophomores on their picnic at Swimmers' Delight.
As time marched on the ducklings became juniors, and their leaders were Jim
Pickett, president, Eldon Platt, vice-president, Bill Graham, secretary-treasurerg and
Marge Theda, class representative. Mrs. Mosher, again, and Mr. Peterson acted as
their guiding stars and kept them out of trouble.
A movie was sponsored in March by the web-foot juniors as a means of raising
money for the coming Junior-Senior Prom.
April found the growing ducklings plunging to their hearts, content at Swimmers'
Delight. The occasion was the junior picnic.
At last the goslings reached the top rung of the ladder. They became in the fall
of '36, mighty SENIORS, rulers of the puddle. Head quack Jim Pickett was ably
assisted by Warren Smith, vice-president, Betty Mae Lind, secretary, and Norma Rose
Evans, class representative. Herding of the ducks was undertaken by Mrs. Mosher
and Mr. Kerley.
The ducks splashed in dramatics with the presentation of the senior play, The
Double Doar, on lVIay 24 and 25. On the annual skip-day in May, they splashed in
The full-fledged ducks left University High with Commencement onhjune 2. Fol-
lowing the graduation exercises was the Senior Ball, last social event of their high school
THE DUCKLING I9
Seated before an open fireplace one evening in 1957, I sud-
denly had a brilliant idea. It had been 20 long years since I had
seen my classmates of the graduating class of '37, so I deter-
mined to hold a reunion, inviting all the members of my class
At the reunion, each member of the class spoke in turn, de-
scribing his travels and achievements since he had graduated.
Eldon Platt, a portly gentleman with a tiny mustache, described
his remarkable career from "school bov to Ambassador of France".
He claims his first advantage was the fact that he was educated in
that excellent institution of learning, University High School.
The next speaker of the evening, Archie Zarewski, described
with much lilibustering of his climb to fame. He told of work-
ing his way up from keeper of the Lane County Jail to United
States Senator. In closing, he gave a political speech endorsing
james Howard Pickett as Republican Candidate for President of
the U. S. The Honorable James Pickett stood up and beamed.
He stated that it had not been his intention to follow a political
career, but due to the state of national affairs, he had given up
his original ambitions in order to save our nation.
Instead of speaking, Helene Parsons, well-known Metropolitan
Opera Star, sang us an aria from her latest successful opera. Her
unusual voice has brought her fame and fortune in the field of
opera. Beverly Sutton, internationally known concert pianist,
accompanied Helene. Beverly told us in a few modest words
that she is known as "The Girl With the Flying Fingers".
In the course of 20 years, Hollywood had lost and found
numerous stars. Fred Waller and Martin McCormick had taken
the places of Basil Rathbone and Fred hlcMurray respectively.
Both were working on new pictures and found it impossible to
attend the reunion.
Ruby had not yet reached the top of her career. Miss Orrick,
dressed in the height of fashion, told us with a thrill in her voice
that she was now secretary to Robert Taylor.
Don MacLaren, the boy with the brilliant brain, rose to con-
tribute to the entertainment. Mr. MacLaren had won a place for
himself by inventing new gadgets for this and that, until the num-
ber of his patents looked like the U. S. Census report.
Tiny as she is, Lois Masters has found a place as beauty oper-
girl". Finding considerable success in her formula for un-kink-
ing dusky locks.
Although she wore the latest creation from Paris and many
jewels, Charlotte Strickler admiued tearfully that she was not
happy with her wealthy husband.
Handsome, broad-shouldered Charles Wiper spoke next. After
winning the 1940 Alympics, he had signed a long term contract
to play "Tarzan", Before sitting down, he gave us his famous
just then a cab drove up, stopped, and the driver, Bob
Marshall, escorted Betty Mae Lind into our presence. We had all
seen pictures of her modeling Parisian creations in leading "style"
Rodney Lewman and Pat Walsh, the Romeo and Juliet of Uni-
versity High School, were smiled upon by all. For we all knew
they were one ahead of the Dionnes.
Not all of the members of our class had to travel to come to
the re-union. Mahlon Pengra, the singing milkman, who is
"God's Gift to the Ladies", broadcasts weekly over KORE,
Eugene's own Station.
Tears came to our eyes as we listened to Martha Myers, fnow
known as "Marta"j sing of her "forgotten man". Marta is a
blues singer in a popular Chicago night club.
Hearing a "Clang! Clang!" we rushed outside to behold-
Johnny Martin. Johnny is the most handsome fireman on the
local fire department squad.
Margie Theda had just returned from abroad. In her talk she
told of seeing Paul Muller, who is a steward on the Queen Mary.
Margie said she didn't know whether he had a girl in every
port or not.
Betty Lewis, an art teacher in Goshen, had recently entered a
"Draw Me!', contest. We all wished her luck.
Milk-Inspector Russel Helterline gave a demonstration on how
he examined the milk.
Muriel Beckman was at the reunion with one of her latest
books. She was preparing to write a humorous book and thought
she might get material at our class reunion.

Lois Onthank sent her regrets that she was unable to attend.
Her patient had a relapse.
Rising slowly to his feet, Roland Rodman, dentist, addressed
his classmates. He claims his dentistry is painless, but we always
Monroe Shelley told us he was content with his lonely task as
We were favored by a song from the '-'Songsters", composed of
Melicent Peters, Doris Rose, and Marjorie Ellen Titus, all as
charming and lively as they were in high school days.
A neat, business-like stenographer told her story next. Sarah
Ray had gone through business college and was at present work-
ing with Bob Rogers, a successful criminal lawyer.
It didn't take Kneeland Stone long to come from California,
because he is an aviator and owns his own plane. Kneeland is
planning a trip up to the North Pole.
Well known in the scientific world is Gordon Sherrett. Gordon
told of his wonderful laboratory in which he performs his experi-
ments. The laboratory is located at his home in St. Louis, Mis-
Bobbie Washburn became a star almost over night. She has
followed the footsteps of Katherine Cornell on the stage in New
"From messenger-boy to a position on the police force!"
From what J. C. Wilson told us, we gather that he had a motor-
cycle when he was messenger boy for Western Union. He rode
exceedingly well, so he was promoted until he was a member of
the state police force.
Alfred Taylor, a football star in Uni Hi, continued this career.
He now coaches the U. of O. football team.
Many of the group cheered lustily when "School Boy" Bunkie
Baker spoke. He is a big-time pitcher.
Mary Booth now heads the W. C. T. U. with enthusiasm and
gave a fervent speech, to the embarrassment of Dan England,
just then a loud noise was heard and thru the sky light came
Francis Eaton in his rocket ship, bringing with him Pearl Getchel
and Aaron Cuddeback from their honey moon.
"Lefty" Bailey, noted monetary authority, announced at the
class reunion that within another Z0 years there will be no need
David Amspoker, milk bottle top tycoon talked long and loud
about his new ''Last-Longer-Bottle-Top".
Among the announcements was a letter from Rev. Harms in
far-away Tibet. The Rev. with his "brother" David had taught
the heathens how to play badminton.
Of those who were not present, Ethel Etter had not yet re-
turned from her latest non-stop airplane solo around the world.
Allie Blais had remained home to attend the funeral of her sixth
husband. Billie Crawford was convalescing from injuries re-
ceived in a fierce pingpong tournament. Linden Leavitt, song
leader at Sing Sing, sent his regrets. Bob Brooke was playing
tirst base in an important Chicago Pink Sox game the day of the
reunion and could not attend. Norman Rose Evans married to
a farmer and with 6 children, had to stay home and help with the
Motorcycle fiend Howard Haworth, who would go without food
for a ride, was there, Lola Blakesley had gained world wide fame
as queen of the redheads. Lloyd Cummings had a column in die

CLASS or 1938 dvi
The young ducklings to become the class of 1938 entered University High with
confidence and ability. During the year they proved they could keep up with the upper
class men. This was made possible by the able leadership of Dick Smith, president 5'
Richard Barger, vice-presidentg Ted Harmon, secretary-treasurerg and Jean Graham,
class representative. Bliss Frazier and Mr. Peterson, class advisers, approved projects
carried on by the class.
These projects included organization of the Amateur Masquers, the sophomore
drama groupg the sophomore edition of the Uni-Hi Lightsg the Silly Symphony Sopho-
more Shufrle, the annual dance held for the youngest ducks only, and the May picnic
which climaxed the year.
As jubilant juniors, the ducks returned to school in the fall determined to do bigger
and better things, starting by being the largest of the three classes. As leaders the middle
classmen selected Jean Graham, presidentg Dale Baker, vice-president, Bob Deverell,
secretary-treasurerg and Dick Smith, class representative. Mrs. May and Mr. Wil-
liamson were advisers to the class.
To show their ability, the junior class took over the responsibility of publishing
one issue of the Hi-Lights, under the editorship of Ted Harmon.
In March a sport dance was sponsored to raise necessary money for the Junior-
Senior Prom given in April in honor of the graduating class.
The class of 1938, having benefited by and enjoyed two successful years at Uni-
versity High, eagerly awaits the time when it will reach the supreme rank of seniors.

CLASS OF 1939
"Measured not in size but in spirit" has been the motto of the class of '39. Despite
the distinction of being the smallest class in University High, the sophomores have not
only invaded every field of endeavor in high school activities, but have made valuable
contributions in the projection of the current year as a banner year.
Under the leadership of Eddie Young, president, Ray Richardson, vice-president,
Abbie Jane White, secretary-treasurer, and Ralph Heustis, class representative, the
group engaged in numerous activities and projects associated with class organizations.
The advisers were Mrs. Ross and Mr. Hendrickson.
The belated but traditional Uget-together" for sophomores only was held in Febru-
ary. Dancing proved to be the chief attraction of the class party with games running a
Athletics, dramatics and forums have all had their devotees among the sophomores.
The class's own dramatics organization, the Amateur Masquers, presented several plays
in assemblies. At least five sophomores had the distinction of winning the coveted UU"
in the field of athletics.
A sophomore picnic as a climax to a profitable year of scholarship and activities was
held in May.
The coming years hold much in store for the class of '39. After surviving the rigors
of being lowly sophomores, the superior position of juniors is eagerly awaited as a chance
for new and greater experiences.

hard blows-one, the lack of pitchers. HBunky" Baker was the only capable pitcher on
the squad. The other blow was the bad weather this spring which caused several games

Omlid, Martin McCormick, Lewis Torgeson, and Ralph Huestis.
Graduating lettermen are Kneeland Stone and Martin McCormick. Martin Mc-
Cormick acted as manager for the team.

Eldon Platt, captain and number one man, through ineligibility, and Russell Helter-
line, number two man, out early in the season with a broken arm. However, led by Bill
Moxley, acting captain, the team managed to win one match and tie another.
The season was a success as far as interest registered, with 15 players turning out.
Members of this year's team were Bill Moxley, Russell Helterline, Bill Graham,
Allan Gard, Dick Smith, Eldon Jacobson, and Leonard Gard. Graduating lettermen
are Bill Graham and Russell Helterline.

Galvin Sargent, Ralph Heustis, Gerald laleusns, Rod Lewinan, Aaron ,Cuddeback and
