THE UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL
Univer51ty High School was organized in
1916 by the University of Oregon as a teach-
ers' training school, with Professor F. L.
Stetson of the School of Education as its
first principal. For several years classes
were held in the old "Oregon" building.
Six grades were included in University
High until 1929, when the seventh, eighth,
and ninth grades were transferred to Roose-
velt Junior High.
Mr. Stetson was followed as principal by
Rollie Dickerson, who, after two years, re-
linquished his position to Harold Benjamin,
now with the Colorado Teachers' College.
B. U. Moore, the present principal, followed
According to Mr. Moore, there has been
approximately 950 graduates from Uni-
versity High since it organization, and
never less than sixty per cent of each
graduating class has gone on to the Uni-
versity of Oregon. Courses offered at Uni-
versity High are mostly college prepara-

ers each semester in all departments, in-
cluding physical education, music, and art.
Approximately 225 students are attend-
ing University High this year, and there
are ten regular teachers. There are about
twenty-five students less this year than
last due to the more restrictive enrolment
quotas. The greatest reduction has been
in the Sophomore Class.

Dr. Macomber came from the Riverside,

Under his supervision c1 Parent-Teachers'
Association was formed, through which
many of the school's problems were dis-
cussed. A very close supervision of the
cadet teachers has been kept by Dr. Ma-
comber this year, and he is formulating
plans which will improve the student-teach-
er arrangement in the school.
Dr. Macomber received his Doctor of
Philosophy at Stanford University in 1936.

seen our school 'grow from cm obscure corn-
er in the old Patterson School building to 0
modern twelve-room institution.
Mr. Moore's duties have not been con-
fined to the management of the school
alone, however, for he has been instructox
of mathematics and acted as adviser for
several clubs, including the Honor Society
and Student Council.
In 1929, Mr. Moore received his M. A.

of five meetings, the organization made a
study of the curriculum and progressive
education as is practiced at University High
Panel discussions were held with speak-
ers taken from the school faculty, the
Eugene School Board, and the parents.

Under the excellent leadership of Harold
Handshuh, the class of 1940 prospered
again this year and enjoyed their full pro-
gram of successful events. Unhke the
previous year, the class was divided into
three groups, through which all the class
business was conducted. The chairmen
from each English class, who were also
vice presidents, were Helen Rayburn,
Suzanne Stickels, and Betty Jeanne Stocker.
Louise Murphy was the secretary-treasurer,
and Louise Baker was the Iunior Class
representative to the Student Council.
Early in the tall, the Class sponsored the
first dance of the year, "The Harvester's
Swing," and a "cafe a la danse" was held
in April. The big event of the year, the
Iunior-Senior Prom, was given on April 21,
with the theme of "April Showers."

Scarlet Masquerade, November 3. This
dance was the only masquerade of the
year and was presented by the Scarlet
Masque, dramatics honorary. It was a
colorful event with many gay costumes
and decorations of large painted masks
and balloons galore.
Prizes were awarded to couples having
outstanding costumes. Colver Waller and
Pat Stanard took the prize for the funniest
costumes, which represented a South Sea
island couple. Coulter Mitchell and Ruby
Iackson received the award for the most
realistic make-up with a portrayal of the
1900 era, and Pete Howard's and Suzanne

received a prize for the most original.
Hi-Y Barn Dance
Hay, stray, lofts, an old-time band for the
dancing, and everything else necessary to
a good farm party was featured at the
H1-Y Barn Dance this year. The date, at
the time the "Duckling" was made up, had
not been set.
The dancers left all formality be-
hind and came dressed in overalls, slacks,
short dresses, and work clothes for the one
hard-time party of the year.
Donald Treadgold, program chairman,
promised a good time for all, provided A1-
lan Gard, treasurer, kept the treasury tull
of money. In case he didn't it would really
be a hard-time party all around, warned
Ralph Huestis, president of the club. Bob
Buck, newly elected president exclaimed
that it would be fun.

With the rustle of taffeta and the swirl
of chiffon, another Girls' League Formal
ushered in the New Year. Under the gen-
eral chairmanship of Abbie lane White,
the dance got off to a flying start. The
music, of which Mary Ann Fox was the
chairman, was furnished by Bonnie Holmes
and his boys.
The theme of the dance was a French
vineyard, and the chairman of the decora-
tions was Helen Rayburn. The entertain-
ment committee functioned under Virginia
Sallee. Priscilla Norton was responsible
for the excellent punch.
Publicity was accredited to Jane God-
love, and the pink and green programs
were the work of Florence Jackson. Ruby
Goldberg and Helen Homer, Marie Wood"
son, and Louise Baker were chairmen of
patrons, tickets! and clean up respectively.
The More We Get Together. The Happier We'll Be
"A-Tisket A-Tasket," dancing, romance,
games, students, cokes, and alums-all
scrambled together in Uni High, September
16, to make the traditional "Merry Mix-Up"
a grand starter to the school's social whirl.
Several new records augmented the
dancing pleasure of about 200 students
who were present. Among the games was
a pin-ball machine that was played with-
out money, a ping pong table, and other
For the first time the Sophomores took
the limelight. During intermission they in-
troduced themselves by walking across the
stage, and were heartily greeted by the old
students. Cokes were sold to aspiring jit-
terbugs during the evening.
This dance was just the beginning of the
round of dances given at University High
School during the year. The Senior Class
gave one of the most successful dances it
has ever had, in the form of a Christmas
"Nothing But The Truth"
party. During the intermission the whole
class joined together to sing Christmas
carols. The Seniors also gave the Senior
Ball after graduation.
A new idea in dances, the "cafe a la
danse," was featured by the Junior Class
in April. Following this dance was the
"April Showers" dance, or the Junior-
Senior Prom, on April 21. The "Harvester's
Swing" was also given by this class.

Departing from the traditional mystery
play, the Seniors picked a three-act comedy
this year for their dramatic production,
"Nothing But the Truth." The production
was given before a large audience May
10 and 11, under the direction of Miss Kay
MacAlear, dramatics major at the Uni-
versity of Oregon.
This play concerned a bet made requir-
ing a man to tell the truth for one full day.
He, as can be imagined, encountered many
difficulties. Donald Treadgold took the part
of Robert Bennett; Hobart Smith was E. M.
Ralston; Bob Everett was cast as Dick Don-
nelly; Bill Tugrnan as Clarence Van Dusen;
Colver Waller as Bishop Doran; Mary Ann
Fox as Gwen Ralston; Martha Moore as
Mrs. E. M. Ralston; Jacqueline Laraway as
Ethel Clark; Pat Stanard as Mable Jack-
son; Priscilla Norton as Sable Jackson; and
Pauline Palmer as Martha.
As It Is Portrayed
University High did not have just a spat-
tering of the "finer arts" this year, as ten
plays were presentedetwo by the Scar-
let Masque, six by the Drama Class, one by
the Senior Class, and one by the Sopho-
','The Amateurs", a farce satirizing the
average amateur high school play produc-
tion, was presented at an assembly in Sep-
tember and later at a P. T. A. meeting.
On the evening of December 16, the
rama Class presented three one-act plays.
These were: "Box and Cox", a farce popu-
lar in England in the nineteenth century;
"Cabbaqes," a comedy about a mid-west-
ern farm family that got rich quick; "The
Marriage Proposal," a play by the Russian
playwright Anton Tchekoff, which portrays
the life of the well-to-do country farmer in
The Scarlet Masquers presented, on De-
Sing And Be Happy
cember 22, a Christmas play entitled
"Christmas Trimmings," a one-act comedy
concerning a case of mistaken identity.
In a pay assembly of February 1, the
Dramatics Class gave two more one-act
plays. One was "Everybody's Doing It,"
a comedy laid in the office of a plastic sur-
geon. The other was a mystery entitled
"The Inn of Return."
The Sophomores started a precedent this
year by producing a class play. It was a
comedy in four acts entitled "Romance in
a Boarding House" and was presented in
the latter part of the spring.
The only long play presented by the
Drama Class was ct comedy in three acts,
"The Absent-Minded Professor," which was
given April 6.

The 1938-'39 Student Council, composed
of the Student Body officers, class presi-
dents, class representatives, and the
presidents of the Girls' League and Golden
U organizations, has been one of the most
effective governing bodies in creating a
better union than University High has ever
had. Members of the Council were: Ray
Richardson, Student Body president;
Martha Moore, Student Body Vice president;
Farbara Hall, secretary; Billie Hearne,
Girls' League president; Kenneth Perin,
Senior Class and Golden U president; Mary
Ann Fox, senior representative; Harold
Handshuh, lunior Class president; Louise
Baker, junior representative; Keith Clark,
Sophomore Class president; Betty Russell,
sophomore representative. Mr. Moore acted
as adviser to this group.
The Merry Mix-Up dance, which was
held at the first of the year to acquaint new
students with the old students, was sponsor-
ed by the Student Council. The Council
was in charge of the ice c:eam sale at the
Eugene-University High basketball game
and of sales at the baseball games.
Outstanding in the year's work was the
revision and amendments to the school
Constitution. Changes were made in the
awarding of athletic honors in such a man-
ner that a player can receive a letter more
easily in football. Revisions were also
made in some of the other sports. The old
Constitution was brought up to date and
copies to supply the school were provided.
For the first time in the history of the
school the Student Council invited mem-
bers of the sophomore and junior classes
to visit the Council meetings before nomi-
nations for the next year's officers were
made. Careful scrutiny was made of the
visitors to determine their executive quali-
It is the duty of the Student Council to
pass on all boys suggested for athletic
awards. It also serves as a nominating
board for the Student Body officers.
Next year student activities will be plans
ned in September by a round table group
including the officers of every club, the
Student Council, and representatives from
the Girls' League.

Although requirements for letters in sev-

University High's defending champion
mermen of the state were to be given a
chance to again be champions as the Ore-
gon State High School Athletic Association
announced that the state swimming meet
was to be held in Eugene after an absence
of a year.
With the loss of two veterans, Dick Smith
and Ge'odd Huestis, the Tide's chances
looked dim, but along with Ralph Huestis,
star Tide swimmer, the other mermen be-
gun to regain form and acquire ability to
give University High a very good chance
of becoming State Champions again.
