"May I see Dr. Waggoner? I want to plan for the fall semester."
"He's busy now. W.on't you sit down and wait?"
Such a dialogue was frequently heard in room T-107 fthe high school officej during
the summer months as many of us returned to make out our programs for the year.
Then September came and most of us, at some time or another, ran into the ofhce
to get the master key for our stubborn locks from the cheerful Mrs. Wunderlich. Soon
came the happy day when we were leaning impatiently over the ledge shouting for our
Later on, we hastened in there to recover tif we were lucky, something we lost or
else to get an absence slipg and it was either Mrs. Wunderlich or Miss Norma jean Davis
who came to our aid. On the year rolled, with those harried people answering questions
from "Where is my little brother this hour?" to "Did James Hamm go to U High in
As we all know, there was a change in the personnel of the office staff after the
Christmas holidays when Dr. Houston succeeded Dr. Waggoner as principal. We were
sorry to have Dr. Waggoner leave but were happy that Dr. Houston was the one chosen
for the position.
After eight years of faithful and under-
standing service, Dr. Waggoner left Univer-
sity High School to accept a position as head
of the Placement Bureau at the Teachers'
College in New Britain, Connecticut. His
loyalty and kindness to the students as wel.
as his sincere interest in University High
School endeared him to everyone. Not only
will his absence be profoundly felt but his
presence will not be easily forgotten.
Dr. Victor M. Houston, former head of
the Department of Education and Psychology
at I.S.N.U., was appointed principal of Uni-
versity High School after Dr. Waggoner's
resignation. He is a profound thinker and
one who has keen insight inbo student prob-
lems. Dr. Houston is always courteous and
pleasant in his dealings with the students
and faculty of U High, and he is never too
busy to talk with and assist them in solving

Hi ya Gang,
Wfell, here we are-Seniors! Can you believe it? Way back in 1941 when we
entered the halls ,of U. High, graduation day was a longed-for but a seemingly unattain-
able goal, wasn't it? We're very luckyg it seemes that our generation has taken things
too much for granted. Look at the buildings at good old U. H. S. Our grandparents
would be more at home in the log cabin school house than in our surroundings of pink
and green rooms. Hmmm-and that scrumptious library which opened in our sophomore
year! Do you think Uncle john could have got his report on George Rodgers Clark
half so well and speedily without those good reference books and Miss Stulbblefield?
Nineteen forty-one was indeed an important year for us, but little did we realize
in September that it would be a year never to be forgotten by the people of our
United States-the year when our country entered World War II. Although there were
all kinds of paper drives, collection of rubber, war .bond drives, etc., it didn't quite
strike home until we saw our "joe's" march off to war, leaving school before graduation
in order to fight for our country. Well, all those boys are still members of our class,
and we surely hope that when they read about our school activities, they will know that
we count them as seniors too.
Do you suppose that we were "little" and "green" when we were freshies? fPardon
us for the crack, dear freshmen, we're casting no reflections upon you, and we'll later
give you the opportunity to say what you please about uslj. I can remember that a
few of us kids did get lost during the first days of school, and, oh me, how hard it
was to get down to the habitual grind of studying! I think we "caught on" fairly
quickly though, don't you? Miss Winegarner, our advisor, helped us to get started,
and in the spring of that f1rst year we elected our officers-Let's see, Mary Lou was
our prexy, wasn't she? Then there were .Gene Van Dyke, Sally Stretch, and Kenny
Keighin, as vice-prexy, secretary and treasurer respectively. Marilyn Mette and Bill
Benjamin were chosen as members of the Student Council. It seems to me that we
were represented in most of the school's major activities during our freshmen year.
Those freshie-sophomore football and basketball games thrilled us because there were

"Oh! Isn't that collegiate?" was heard echoing through the corridors of U. High.
Speaking, of course, was a member .of the junior class, the "most collegiate" class
in the school. The president this year was Eldred Popejoy, Charlotte Miller and
Everette Roeder were vice-president and secretary-treasurer respectively. The Student
Council representatives were John Harvey and Carlton Gamer.

November 17, leading parts being taken by Merle Murray, Pat Hollowell, and Everette
Roeder. "Girl Shy" was acclaimed as one of the most successful junior plays in several

John Harvey, Bill Ewing, Paul Miller, Eldred Popejoy, John Teter, Allan Bruno, Ted
Crihfield, Floyd Bonds, Jim Johnston, Harry Ziegler. Carlton Gamer was pianist for the
mixed chorus, of which many juniors were members.
At each of the games and at the all-school parties, the juniors were ever present
at their posts, selling candy and col-ces.
Proceeds from the class play, as well as those from the candy and coke sales,
went toward the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom, which was held on May 18.

much difficulty in "getting over the bumps" of their third year at University High School.

You know, we felt pretty smart when we were sophomores because we had the
largest class in school fand some say, the noisiest, but well, we didn't have to believe
thatj. Our officers that year were Bob Haage and Joan Rhinehart, presidents, Gene
Van Dyke, vice-president, Betty Cross, secretary, and Sally Stretch, treasurer. Mary Lou
and Joyce were on Student Council. As I remember it, we were really "on the ball"
that year. Bobby Johnston, and Jerry Barker made the varsity basketball squadg Joan
Rhinehart and Joe Maurer were active in the music department, Sally, Mary Lou, Barb,
Johnny Malmberg and Marilyn Mette worked on the Clarion staff, and all of us were
members of various school clubs fa definite asset, what say?J

our talent at acting. Remember "In a House Like This", Rod? Yes, indeed! Who
could imagine Betty Cross as a cranky old grannie!-and Mary Lou and Norman as
Mom and Pop-Hmm-weren't Burtie and Joyce a cute couple? Then there were
Margy, the maid, Joan, the sophisticated lady, Gene Murray and Barb Kinder as the

Hey! Those picket fences! I keep seeing them in my dreams. How about that
chocolate milk shake in the piano, Carol? And Miss Winegarner, such a tireless worker
at the Junior-Senior Prom! At the close of our junior year May Lou was elected student
council prexy for that all important year '44-'-45. She received both our congratulations
and our sympathy, but we all knew she'd be the A no. 1 leader that she had always
been in the past.
What have we done this year, kids? Just about everything and more, I guess.
Our athletes, Bobby Johnston, Jerry Barker, Johnny Wroan, Earl Fry, will all be missed
next year, I know. We wonder how school will continue without our musicians, actors,
actresses, debators, journalists, scientists, etc., but I suppose it won't be long until we're
part of the dim past. You may forget us, but we won't forget you, nor will we forget
our happy and eventful days at old U. High. Bye now, chicks and laws! Be seein' ya!

Immediately after three o'clock on Monday, the eighth clay of january, 1945, a
stream of freshman poured out of buildings all ,over University High's campus and
headed for Cook Hall.
Their class sponsor, Miss Webb, had called a meeting of the ninety-seven freshiet
to elect ofhcers for the coming year.
Miss Webb took charge of the meeting until Martha Schaab was elected president.
Then under Martha's direction the following were elected to the other oHices: Norma
Hanell, vice-president, Nancy Fearhiley, secretary, Jim Laible, treasurer.
Early in the year, Miss Webb and Dr. Waggoner appointed Joan Mercier, Jack
Donahue, and Bill Rolley to the Student Council, Barbara Browne to the apportionment
board and Bill Rolley to the assembly committee.
Other freshmen who took positions are: Franklin Abbott, vice-president of the
Latin Club, Nancy Fearhiley, treasurer of Thaliang and Martha Schaaib, our cheerleader.
The freshman class got off to a flying start-thanks to Miss Webb-and we're
sure their next three years will be very successful.

"Do, do. mi, so. si, ti 'Ohf Up one half step, please." This was the tuning up
routine heard at every rehearsal of the University High School Mixed Chorus.
Under the direction of Dr. H. XV Peithman, the chorus presented several excellent
programs during the year. On Sunday. january 14, a musical program was presented.
During the first part of the program, the chorus sang a group of songsg Audrey Brust
and Betty Mallory were the vocal soloists. Carlton Gamer then played an original com,
position on the piano. The outstanding feature of the afternoon was the presentation by
the thorus ol' the cantata. "The Great Assembly Line." This was one of the most out-
standing performances ot' the year. Another cantata, presented later in the year, also re-
teived well-deserved praise.
The chorus sang lor the school assembly, baccalaureate, and the annual May festival.
Otlicers for this year were Audrey Brust. presidentg Barbara Dobbs, vice-presidentg
and Betty Cross, secretary-treasurer.

One, two, three, fourfplay. Those passing the rehearsal room in Cook Hall any
fourth hour perhaps heard these familiar words. Then, if, by chance, they glanced into
the room, they saw Mr. Peithman waving a baton, trying to get the band of University
High School to keep in time.
The band played at our football and basketball games, thus giving more pep to the
cheering section and building up the morale of the players. It was indeed thrilling to all
of us when we heard the band start our school song. Some other band numbers which we
especially liked to hear were On the Mall, Argezzfimz, and The Deaver! Song.
Members of our band in conjunction with band members from Normal Community
and Bloomington High played at the McLean County Teachers' Meeting in March. The
band also presented an assembly program.
The officers for this busy organization were Marilyn Wariiibir, president, Don
Sherrard, vice-president, and Eldred Popejoy, secretary-treasurer.

The club started in fine shape this year. A cider and doughnut' party was held in
U High's Home Ec. Room for freshmen and new members. The party was a success, and
everybody was contented with the food, the debate, and the fellowship of others.
During the year an all school party was sponsored by the society. A St. Patricks Day
theme was carried out and was greeted with enthusiasm by the entire school.
The annual Rostrum-Thalian Debate was held at the very end of the year. Although
both clubs worked very hard, the results were really worthwhile.
The Thalian banquet was held on April 21, at the Hotel Rogers. Those attending
enjoyed a good dinner and line speeches .by Mr. Barger and members of the club. The
annual award was presented to Mary Lou Stover for .outstanding work in the club during
her four years of high school.
The year was .brought to a successful close by a party given at the home of Miss
Stubbletield, sponsor of Thalian. Let's hope next year will be .bigger and better.

show that the girls were members of the Wal-

As I was walking down the hall one day, I heard a scream. Thinking something
exciting was happening, I hastened to the room from which the scream had come, only
to find some members of the Dramatics Club practicing a play. The play looked interest-
ingg so I stayed. Indeed it was really a "super" production. There was some good talent
there. Perhaps some of these people might become famous actors and actresses some day.
Members of the club received valuable information concerning the production and
selection of plays. They also had experience directing plays and participating in them.

livery time one entered the high school library this year he noticed some new and
interesting arrangement in the show case or something different on the bulletin board.
This was the product of that hardworking group of seventeen who also made book
reviews and worked at the loan desk-ethe Library Club.
This two year old club met once a month on Friday. The purposes of the club
were to underst.md library practices, to gain an appreciation of good books, and to
help keep the library interesting and attractive.
In addition to the actual library work, the members of the club had other activities,
sur-li as participating in one radio program, advertising Book Week in November, arrang-
ing a special display for Christmas and helping in the book drives. The annual social
event was a picnic at the end of the year.
.The members elected their othcers this year as follows: president, Mary Hurstg vice
president, Margaret Huthngtong treasurer, Nona Sylvester, and secretary, Pat Lawrence.

History exams! An old story to all the seniors! But it was told in a new way in
the seniors' play, "Almost Summer", by Christopher Sergei. The play, under the direction
of G. B. Barber, was presented on March 23 in Capen Auditorium.
Paul fDuane Vanderwaterj has to make a ninety-,five on his history exam or he
can't go on his summer vacation with the family. The fact that his girl jane fCarol
Karrj is spending her vacation at the same place is added incentive for him. Mr. and
Mrs. jones QDean Scott and Nan Brownj have their troubles trying to keep the family's
feet on the ground, especially since young junior fBurt Mercierj has already met his
one and only Lila fMarilyn Mettej.
Other characters are jane's brother QRod Abbottj and Paul's sister Mary QBetty
Malloryj, who are very much in loveg Principal Smudgely Uohnny Malmbergjg and
Anna, the maid fBetty Soucyj.

The lights dimmed, the curtains parted, and University High students and friends
settled back to enjoy "Girl Shy," one of the most humorous plays in recent years. The
time was 8:15 on the evening of November 17, 1944, and the place was Capen
Merle Murray, as "girl shy" Tom Arsdale, Pat Hollowell, as Barbara Sanford,
and Everette Roeder, as Oke Stimson, were the leading characters. Other members of
the cast were Charlotte Miller, joan Kupfer, Glen Murray, Corinne Carson, Marcella
Pearson, Irv Tick, Yvonne Maxey, David Brazelton, and John Teter.
The story concerns Babs Sanford and her struggles to "catch" Tom Arsdale. Of
course, many complications arise.
Mr. G. Banber, a newcomer to University High, was the splendid director. He was
assisted by Miss Maxine Miller, Miss Patricia Weldon, and Peggy Minch. The make-up
committee consisted of Gretchen Gottschalk, and Oleta Lanigan. Costumes were in
charge of Charlotte Geske, Barbara Kauth, and Dorothy Ragland. On the property
committee were Polly Flesher and Wanda Bundy.

We feel that it is rather appropriate for the Clarion staff picture to appear at the end
of the organization pictures since it is one of the last clubs to function during the year.
It's gift to University High is the 1945 yearbook which is presented near the close of
With war time restrictions this year the task of putting out this ,book has been a
difficult one. Many original plans concerning the theme, the gay-nineties, had to be
changed because of the lack of paper, film, and printing materials, however, the staff
and the sponsor, Miss Lucile Klauser, worked diligently and long making necessary
adjustments. Your enjoyment of this book will be their reward. We hope that you like
the book and can relive the happy experiences related in its pages.

Ah! Autumn! Those wonderful days when we watched our U. High boys come
prancing out ,on the field full of pep and vigor. The results of this pep were as follows:
As a result of the above scores, we were third in the Corn Belt Conference and
second in the Intercity race.
We made our debut on September 15th. Bobby Johnston, the U. High captain,
proved his leadership many times during the gridiron season. He lead the Corn Belt
in the scoring loop.
This year Bobby Johnston, Jerry Barker, Earl Fry, Johnny Wroan, and Art Biggs
all put in their last performances, which were really great ones.
U. High .finished the football season in a blaze-of-glory by defeating its old rival,
Trinity, at the Homecoming game. Another specialty of this game was the presentation
of the Queen and her attendants at the half. This year the cheering was really a credit
to the school.

Back Row: B. Mercier, B. Hougham, T. Galvin, J. Martens, D. Miller, M. Kadlec, R. Creager.
Basketball reached a new high this year as University High School came out victorious
in nineteen out of twenty-six games to make one of the outstanding records in central
Illinois. Together with Ifairbury the U. High basketeers were cochampions of the Corn
Belt Conference for the 1944-45 seasong they also shared the intercity title with B.H.S.
After winning the regional tournament at Lexington, our boys entered the sectional
at La Salle as favorites but lost to the fast-clicking Somonauk team 55-41.
Of the ten letermen, three Gerry Barker, Tom Galvin, and johnny Wroanj will
he lost by graduation. Don Sherrard, Dick Weidig, Bob Hougham, Clinton Short, Dewey
Miller, and jerry Martens will form the nucleus for next year's team.
Coach O'Connor and the team really deserve acclaim for this year's outstanding ball
1945 Regional efmmpiand
An abundance of praise goes to Coach O'Connor and ,our varsity team for bringing
U. High through to the top this year with a thrilling conclusion to the Lexington regional.
Four of the last five tournament games ended with only a one-point margin, and
U. High played in two of these games. The fact that the boys didn't give up but were
determined to win pays a high tribute to a polished team and to one of which we are very
proud. Witli the ability of johnne Wroan and four very capable cagers fGalvin, Barker,
Slierrard, and Weitligj this year's cagers did their job very spectacularly.
Wfe want also to pay tribute to the managers, Gus Creager and Jim Laible, who
faithfully followed the team and helped keep them in tip-top shape.

U High's Frosh-Soph Basketball team turned in some thrilling games this year under
the able leadership .of their coach, I. Laws.
The team included the following: Don Sutton, Bill Dorn, Tom Jefferson, Dale
Knobloch, Clinton Short, Charles Laskowski, Paul West, jim Day, Dick Weidig, Jerry
Martens, Robert White, Dean Shepard, jack Ietton, Jack Steege, Bill Mette, Robert
Hillman, and Delmar Gottschalk. The managers were Steve Sample and jim Laible.
Many of these lads will become even more prominent on our varsity next year.

U. High's frosh-soph football squad finished the most successful season in the history
of the school ,by winning nine games and losing none.
Directed by I. Laws and led by Bill Dorn, Dick Wiedig, and jerry Martens,
U. High's varsity-to-be held their opponents this year to the amazing total of no points.
This year's showing by these youngsters causes the rest of us to feel that next year's
varsity will be in line for the Corn Belt Championship.
Baseball started in full swing at U High this year with approximately 35 boys report-
ing regularly every afternoon to our capable coach, I. J. Laws.
U High opened the season with a blaze of glory by brushing aside Carlock to the
tune of 8-2.
After several games the team was unfortunate in losing their very capable catcher,
John Wroan, to the Navy.
The captain, jerry Barker, proved his worth more than once in a tight spot.
The line-up was as follows: pitchers-Bob Hougham, jerry Barker, Paul Miller,
Ronald Bates, and Dick Weidigg catchers-John Wroan, Bill Dorn, and Wilbur Hoover,
first base-Paul Miller, Bill Benjamin, and Bob Houghamgsecond base+Clinton Short,
Joe Kroll, and Jerry Barkley, third base-Milton Kadlecg short stop-Don Sherrardg
outfield-jerry Barker, Bob Landis, Tom jefferson, Tom Kinder, Bob White, Don Camp-
bell, Bob Hillman, and Steve Sample.
The baseball scores and pictures are not in the yearbook because it had to go to the
printer's too soon.
University High School's thinly-clads opened the track season "with a bang" this
year by dropping Heyworth in a dual meet 80wto 37 . Later they met the Hornets
again and N. C. H. S. in a Triagular at Normal's Oval and were upset by the Ironmen
who scored 61 points toU.High's 51 and Heyworth's 59. The Corn Belt meet concluded
the season, but since the yearbook went to press before that meet, the results can not be
The 'boys who were out for track during the first of the season were Floyd Bonds,
Ted Chriiield, Bill Dorn, Tom Galvin, Carlton Gamer, Milton Kadlec, Bob Landes,
Merle Murray, Eldred Popejoy, Jim Streenz, Don Sutton, Irv Tick, Dick Weidig, Warren
Woodburn, and Johnny Wroan.

A symbol of sports! Yes, that characteristic green sweater with a big yellow U is a
mighty common sight around U. High. Wlmen a letter has been earned in some sport,
a boy automatically becomes a member of this club.
Under the able leadership of Coach O'Connor, this popular club may be called
upon to welcome visiting teams, to serve as ushers and ticket-takers, and to take charge
We have a large record book in which every boy gaining a letter in athletics is
given the privilege of signing his name. In this way a permanent record is kept of all
the athletic events along with the names of all lettermen.
The annual sports banquet each spring is also sponsored by the U. Club.
In the coming years may U. High continue to have as fine a bunch of boys wearing
those U's which represent hard play and good sportsmanship as it has had in the past.

Q. 4 .4.
G.A.A., the club which is always "on the go", was back at it again this year with
more pep and vigor.
The ofhcers of this imposing group were as follows: Pauline West, president,
Barbara Williams, vice-president, Ruth Mentzer, secretary.
Miss Thielen sponsored the club until late fall when she left campus, and much
credit should be given to her for her wonderful advice and ideas. Miss Marian Smalley
substituted for Miss Thielen for several months and also contributed much to the club.
After Miss Smalley left, the club sponsorship was given to Miss Ross who began her
duties at U. High in February.
To be a member of this club of might and power, there were certain requirements.
In other words, an individual had to participate eight times in one sport before she
could become a member. 4
Then, of course, nothing could stop these girls! All of them wanted a numeral.
To get a numeral, an individual had to earn three sets of points. A point was obtained
by going out for one sport eight times.
G.A.A. also put on a radio program called "Who's Next" which was very good.
Some of the sports of G.A.A. were hockey, volley ball, basketball, baseball, and
individual sports. fln case you passed the gym and heard some blood curdling screams,
if was only someone making a basket in one of those heated tournamentsj
The girls also had one party a month, all .of which were "super-duper"!
G.A.A. got a portable badminton set this year! Was it swell? just ask anyone.
Maybe this old saying is true: "All good things improve with age." As G.A.A.
becomes older in our school, it becomes a more active organization.
Well, until next year, girls of G.A.A., more muscles and power to you!

Don Elam: This typewriter isn't any good.
Miss Webb: Why do you say that, Don?
Don: Well, I want to write "book" and this machine only has one "o".
Miss Stephens fafter a long discussion on peace, good will, disarmament,
etc.j: Well, Arthur, give your reasons why you hate war.
Arthur Biggs: 'Cause wars make history, and I don't like history.

In every high school there's a freshman class. In fact, we were all freshmen at
some time fand tales of our own greenness still embarrass usj. However, we sure owe
some tribute to those freshies -7 the largest class in U. High. What about-
Frankie Abbott, who already sighs "She's short, sweet, and beautiful"
Betty Baker, who is already an entry in many boys' date books
Naomi Ruth Beeler, who already has a "Sample" of a man picked out
Barbara Browne, who's got beauty and brains
Frances Coan, who really stars at standing on her head in gym classes
Bill Bunting, who worked until 8 o'clock on decorations for an all-school
Don Campbell, who's going to be a second Pee-Wee Reese
Clark Cole, who's the boy wonder of Mr. D'Connor's gym classes
Franklin Correll, who thinks doors are too low
jack Donahue, who was the big political boss of Student Council
Nancy Fearheiley, who is the talented artist of the class
Freddie Lee Gardner, who has never been seen without his hair combed
Ann Gooding, who of all the Freshies is the most interested in athletics
Delmar Gottschalk, who seems to have a real basketball future
Nellie Gray, who must have had a song named after her
Charlene Hamilton, who really attracts those men H
Norma jean Hannell, who raises sheep
Bill Harsha, who is never seen far from Bill Anderson's
Ruth Ann Herrington, who has someone's initials on her socks
Bob Hillman, who is famous for his "What's up, Doc?"
Tom jefferson, who will evidently be even more famous than Thomas
jack jetton, who is known for his athletic knowledge
Milt Kadlac, who shows the upper classmen how to dance
Jim Laible, whom the teams couldn't do without
Charles Lackowski, who even makes the college players sit up and take
Patty Martin, who has the sweetest smile in the class
Kathleen MacDonald, who really bangs out the Boogie Woogie
Patty Taylor, who will probably take over Mrs. Wunderlich's job
James Zaleski, who plans to be a chemist with DuPont when he graduates

are proud of our alumni now in the service of
our country. Many of our friends and former
classmates have fallen in the line of duty, but
we shall never forget them. The service flag
hanging in the library is only the symbol. Be-

for the flag of the United States of America.
We who are now in University High School
give ourselves to the establishing of a world
worthy of your sacrifice.
