N XXIX Foreword ln this U and I, the Class of 1945 has attempted to combine the gaiety and humor of high school life with a proportionate amount of its seriousness and impor- tance. We have brought forth, with the aid of our faculty advisers, an annual that we believe includes a complete record of the school year in a new and differ- ent theme. ln expressing this theme, we of the staff believe that even though high school is the last shelter for many of us, before we tread the world's pathways alone, still it has a lightness and carefreeness that can- not be ignored. 'llhe Class of 1945 wishes to remember and record not only the valuable training we have re- ceived, but also the wonderful times we have had while receiving it. lf you enjoy this U cum' I even a fraction as much as we have enjoyed working on it, we shall feel that our efforts have not been in vain. J.. A .4 e .f lf-N' W-' ,I f 'ff-4 Page Two Q D d Page Three Vve, the Class of 1945, dedicate this U and I to Mr. Vynce A. Hines, in sincere appreciation for his enduring patience, watchful diligence, and ever-helpful assistance. As boys' adviser, he has handled a difficult job supremely well, as a class adviser, he has encour- aged our constructive projects and tempered our Wilder ideasg and he has ever been ready and willing to chap- eron our picnics and parties. Mr. Hines, we thank you for being such a good "parent" and such a good friend throughout our high school years.

The Storm 0 Life Quan: They have been splendid, these unforgotten years That have found us, as one, in pursuit of knovvledgeg But alas, we must go, for the hour glass is emptying- Emptying us, as its grains, into the awaiting world. These marble halls have been as a common refuge- A refuge from the outside storm, the storm of life. Now we are destined to descend into this mysterious unknown, To be strewn far and near, as pollen in the wind. The time is upon us, as death is upon the stricken, Never faltering, but slowly moving on its monotono s way. u VVe must not fail, for now life's storm is reaching?- Reaching to thrust us into its chaos--forever.

UUIYUWUUZXQ The Open, Gate 1-1 As we close our lockers for the last time and think back on hve glorious years of pleasure and study, the highlights of those years seem to come back to us. Before stepping through the open gate into a larger, more complex world of problems and consequences, let us once more live those highlights. As Sub-Freshmen we elected Kent Hobart, presidentg Janet Anderson, vice- presidentg Harlan johnson, treasurer, and Barbara Dobbins, secretary. NfVe ably assisted the Class of '44 in their spring dance and supervised a March of Dimes campaign throughout the school. Our talent assembly was the best one of the year in the eyes of all students. Upon returning as Freshmen the next fall, we chose Charles Gray to pound the gavel, Harriet Shedd to serve in his absence, Clinton Granger to be purser, and Robert Fellows, to be scribe. Our spring dance added tremendously to the success of the social functions of that year. As Sophomores our inlluence was felt more and more in school activities. Uur boys began participating increasingly in athletics, and the girls led in Pleiades activities. NVe selected Paul Hartman as president: Harriet Shedd, vice-presidentg Charlotte Mittendorf, secretaryg and Douglas W'eitzel, treasurer. Our next year, as juniors, was full of activities, happiness, and homework for all. VVe put out the first issue of the Just-Us, which became a crowning success. Our assembly, -lunor House, was proclaimed a riot, and the Class of '44 felt that our Junior-Senior prom was a beautiful climax to a high school career. Thomas Benner was elected as captain: VVilliam Schoonmaker, hrst mate, Edward Deam, purserg and Douglas VVeitzel, keeper of the log. During our Junior year the boys were represented numerously o11 the athletic teams and were praised for their intellect in scholastic endeavor. Our girls were officers of Pleiades, and their schoolwork was matched by none. Martha Dodds was leader of junior Terrapin. Upon arriving for our last year at University High, we picked VVillard -lack- son as our leader: Martha Dodds, chairman in his absenceg Williani Danielson, treasurer: and Roberta Bloom, secretary. Our boys again captured the county championship in basketball, and with NVilliam Schoonmaker as leader of an all-Senior squad they completed a success- ful season. Charlotte Allen, Klaus Baer, Jewel Marco, Willarcl Jackson, and Roberta Bloom were mainstays of the all-school production, "Feathers in a Gale." Elizabeth Harding ably managed the annual carnival to a glorious success. On the Pleiades Council were Martha Dodds, Harriet Shedd, Roberta Bloom, Charlotte Mittendorf, Janet Anderson, Barbara VVerstler. Harriet Shedd and Richard Thomas represented us on the Student Council, and Harriet Shedd was elected president of the organization. VVillard Jackson was elected vice-president of the Student Council. VVe wish to express our thanks to Miss Changnon, Mrs. Wilsfmii, and Mr. Hines, who have so ably guided and advised us. VVe also would like to thank Dr. Sanford, Mr. Howd, Mr. Higgs, Mr. Pogue, and Mr. Allen for supervising our activities. DOUGLAS WH-3l'1'z1iI. Pam: Niuctcen Welcome 1-1 Forty-two Seniors of University High School welcome you to this commence- ment program. We are assembled here to participate in certain formalities which represent the concluding moments of our high school careers. We have all been looking forward to this occasion. At University High School, we have had unusual opportunities to learn those things which our civilization can teach us. In addition, our teachers have made particular efforts to help us understand and work with each other. During this time, many of our school experiences seemed only difficult-frustrating. As we look back, even those experiences are now part of a happy relationship. This mo- ment has significance for us in that many happy associations are being concluded. A more important significance lies in the fact that immediately before each of us, there are rapidly expanding horizons. However, for each of us, as for each of you, life has been, and will continue to be, a succession of expanding horizons. During the first few years of our lives, almost all of our experiences were within a family group. The horizon extended a little beyond the household. Then came a commencement. VVe started to school. There we found new playmates, teachers, the routines, and formalities of school. VVe made new friendsg some enemies. We learned to work and play together. We increased our understanding of others in these smaller groups. ln junior high school, the horizons again seemed suddenly to expand. ln high school, increased freedom has been mingled with new combinations of duties and responsibilities. ln dealing with these successive expansions of our horizons, we have had help and guidance from our parents, teachers, and friends. VVe have not always been aware of the guidance, and on at least some occasions, we have been un- receptive to help. Your participation in our struggles and your assistance in our needs have made you a part of us. As we make these new beginnings, you will go with us. We are grateful for this comradeship. We welcome you this evening. JANET L. ANDERSON. rf' 2,9 Q o -Sa Page Twenty Farewell 1-. How far away seemed the climactic night of Commencement when we, the class of '45, wandered through the halls of University High School as Freshmen four years ago! Four years in the future was infinity. Nevertheless, the evening- the moment-has arrived. VVe must say goodbye. As a class we are meeting for the last time, and we cannot help but feel a certain sadness at the passing of scenes and actions which have comprised our high school days. lt has been an enjoyable time-this fifth-score of years-and we are reluctant to leave it behind. Only the confidence that we shall take with us, to keep forever, a part of our University High School lightens our separation. Friendships we have made, memories of little things-the ringing of a class bell- the favorite seat in the library-familiar things-these will remain. However, high school is not the end, but only one section of the path which leads to the ultimate goal that each of us has set. Therefore, while the separation from our secure and familiar surroundings will be trying, the dominant note of this evening is not sorrow at farewell, but rather the eager expectancy of the unknown something to come. VVe are determined, each one of us, to look ever forward. Many of us will go on to college or university, some will go into the armed forces, and others will turn immediately to civilian work. All of us will be glad of our high school background and will try to employ it to good advantage in the future. Before bidding farewell, we wish to take the opportunity to thank our under- standing advisers and teachers who imparted to us valuable tools of knowledge and comprehension. Their sacrifice and enduring perseverence through our eight semesters of consistant distraction we shall remember gratefully. The inescapable second is here-goodnight, and goodbye. RICHARD SAN1:oRN THOMAS ,, 4'-. f fr Page Tzvmity-one Hatchet Uration s-s Ladies, Gentlemen, Seniors, Friends, and last and least, Juniors: You have assembled tonight to witness the transference of this little implement from the custody of the exalted and distinguished Senior Class to the hands of the un- worthy juniors. The Seniors know that this polished object of wood and steel is a hatchet, symbol of authority, to the Juniors it is merely an axe. What does this beribboned instrument, steeped in tradition, mean to the Seniors? I shall tell you, partly for your information, but mainly for the belated education of the juniors who have existed in ignorance much too long. H stands for humility, for the freedom from pride and arrogance with which we, the Seniors, have lived and ruled our kingdom, University High School. We have brought honor and distinction to its halls. .el stands for the outstanding athletic ability which has been exhibited by our great class. All of the eleven members of this year's illustrious varsity basketball team are Seniors, three of whom were so outstanding, that they played on last year's county championship team. T is for two, the two years that this prominent class has had possession of this hatchet. In the entire history of University High School, we are the only class which has had this object for more than one year. C is for the courage which the Class of 1945 exhibited in procuring this tool just two years ago tonight. H stands for happiness sfor the happy domain in which we Seniors have lived throughout these last four years. Never has there been a moment of sadness or despair in our happy group. E stands for the efficiency that has been exhibited on many an occasion. During the basketball season, our boys worked as one, and as a result we won the county championship. Our Junior prom and our yearbook with its many problems of selling advertising, taking pictures, and compiling material, are examples of how we all worked together with great results. T stands for tact and toil. We labored diligently in the classroom. achieving successes such as no other class has ever done or ever shall do. Now, we come to the shred of a word, axe. Here, A stands for the absurdity with which these adolescent Juniors have tried to undertake impossible tasks, such as the fusf-Us. X stands for all the missing quantities which the Juniors do not possess but envy in others. E stands for total failure and for the extent to which the Juniors try to exaggerate their emotions. VVe Seniors know that E stands for the end of the Junior Class when they try, mind you I said "try," to emulate our accomplishments. It is with commiseration, compassion, and condolence for our beloved Senior Hatchet, that, as the chosen representatives of the honored and esteemed Class of 1945, I now present to you this instrument. Here is your axe, my children. Guard it well. May you sometime prove worthy of it and of your predecessors. JAMES G. CARD Page Twentg two Response to the Hatchet Oration sf I receive this hatchet with the greatest of pleasure. l am humble because I have the honor of representing the .Iunior Class on this auspicious occasion, and I ani full of pride because I realize that this year's -lunior Class has come to the standards symbolized by the hatchet. I feel it my duty to put this symbol to use in explaining the circumstances of this year's Junior and Senior classes. As each class enters University High, it might be compared to an insignilicant ripple on the ocean of life. lt is like the slow but sure forming of a wave. As Juniors, the class has reached its crest. lt recognizes its obligations and sets forth to meet them with the vigor of youth. This is a high point in the career of a high school class. As a Senior Class the crest is passed, and it believes that it has ful- filled it duty to the school: it can feel proud of its accomplishments and watch the lower classmen work. The Class of '45 is an especially good example of the preceding statement. Two of its most industrious and intelligent members, seeing the error of their ways, found it convenient to move out of town. One of these members lzcijifvnczi to be the illustrious president of the class. Unable to find a replacement for such an indispensable personage in its own ranks, the class was forced to till the void with a post-graduate student to lead it to success. Ilut even with the excellent leadership of a post-graduate student, the class saw that its only way to avert bankruptcy of the U AND l was to enlist the aid of the Junior Class president in selling advertisements. When the Senior Class received the abbreviated axe last year, it apparently believed the latter was an instrument for rug-cutting, because, for some unexplainable reason, it managed to expend approximately twenty dol- lars more than the amount received. Luckily they, as industrious Juniors, had been able to accumulate enough money for their retirement as Seniors. On the other hand, this year's Junior Class has been able to set some notable goals for its successors. Through energetic projects the class has been able to set a record for receipts ty and expendituresl of class funds. lt set another record for donations to worthy causes, and still another for excellent entertainments given to the school. In addition, it sponsored the most successful play in the history of University I-Iigh School. The Seniors, nevertheless, unable to trust other organizations had to be affirmed and reaffirmed of plans for sponsoring the junior-Senior prom. In conclusion, I wish to SEQ' that, although these records will probably never be broken, we of the Junior Class hope that our successors will strive continually and hopefully to come up to these standards, and that they will be as eligible in the receiving of the hatchet in the following years as we have been eligible this year.

Junior Class History The Juniors began the school year under the leadership of llill Graham. president. Ann Rovelstad was elected vice-presidentg llob Fessler, treasurerg and Ruth Stouffer, secretary. ln the Student Council, the class was represented by Ross Bell and Helen Key. The traditional junior activities were efficiently handled. The class sold candy after school and other edibles at games. The Just-Us was continued to advantage, and all technical aspects of the University High School play were administered by the Juniors. During all these activities, the class was guided by Mrs. Swindell and Mr. Birdzell. A colorful Christmas dance in the Union Building was one of the social events sponsored by the juniors. This established a new precedent for all-school parties. Of course, the summit of achievement was the Junior-Senior prom. Finding success in every activity they chose to enter, the Class of '46 expect to do big things as Seniors! GMTEL WINAJQOR Page Thiity Page Tlzirty-on 6 Junior Class Poem sf We are the Juniors.

ROGER BRAY Page Tl11'I'fj'-f7l'0 lophomore Class History The Sophomore Class launched upon an exciting school year with Vtlilliam Allen, president, to lead us. Assisting him in class duties were Margaret Glenn, vice-president, Joanne Vlfriglit, secretary: Gerry Johnson, treasurer, and Ellen Gernon and Roger Bray, Student Council representatives. Miss Mary lball and Dr. P. L. Zickgraf were our capable advisers. llesides pursuing ardently our studies, we felt the urge for social activities. Our first "fling" was a gay Sadie l-lawkins dance held on November lg, in the music room. lhis proved to be lots of tun and a welding factor tor the members of the class. The approaching basketball season found Sophomore boys making a name for themselves on the reserve team. At the same time Sophomore girls were active in Pleiades and were represented on its council by Nancy Gilbert. ln intramural sports all members of the class participated in badminton, volleyball, basketball, or in a variety of other sports. Junior Terrapin, girls, honorary swimming group, boasted three members from our class. Patricia Price was manager, while Mar- garet Glenn and Ellen Gernon were members. Another interest exhibited by the girls was a knitting club, which met in the homes of various members on Monday afternoons. This proved most successful during the first semester, and through it were strengthened the bond of friendship among the girls. The class sponsored two after-game hops, one following the Uni High-Philo and the other after the Uni High-Tolono game. Our major social function of the year was the colorful May dance, which was an all-school affair. The selec- tion of a May queen and her court attendants added a regal touch and sparkle to the event. Qur class social activities were concluded finally with a gala picnic, at which marshmallows and wieners abounded. One factor has been obvious this year: that the Sophomores of '45 are united in spirit and interests and already have ambition and desire to fulfill their future school obligation in true 'fjunior fashion."

A new simplified consti- tution was ratihed, important changes were made in the organization, money- making projects were evaluated, elections were conducted, the social calendar was set up, dances were hnanced, Red Cross drives were conducted, and general service was rendered to the school. All problems of an all-school nature were considered, and attempts were made to hnd solutions for them. The Student Council kept in contact with local councils and took an active part in the District Convention. The Student Council was capably led by Harriet Shedd, president, VVillard lackson, vice-president, Ann Rovelstad, secretary, and Roger Bray, treasurer. Mr. Engle was the faculty adviser. Pago Thirty-eight gc Tlxir ly- ui One of the students' best friends around Uni High is the cheerful gent who wields the brooms and mops in our halls and classrooms. Known to us only as "Eddie", he always has a smile and 21 greeting for each and every one. lt is Eddie who has let the for- getful basketball boy into school after tive o'cloek, so that he might get his books and coat from his locker. And Eddie was the person responsible for the success- ful fulfilment of the Pleiades initiation as originally planned. To one who has been helpful whenever pos- sible, and friendly at all times, we say, "Thanks, Eddie, thanks a lot for all you have done for us."

More than that, however, is one of these outdoor sofasg it is a thing of character and an object of many uses. Scrutinize it closely! See that scratch on the left front leg? That was acquired on the afternoon of a school picnic. The leg of an inverted park bench makes an extremely elhcient coke-bottle opener. Now look at those initials, carved during the course of a soft moonlit evening. This bench is a keeper of secrets. And did you ever think of a park bench as an anchor to hold fast the end of a dog leash? VVhat better way to take care of a pooch while its mistress is talking to her policeman? A park bench can be a booby trap, toog seat slats-wet paint- disaster! lnvariably the paint is green and does not match the victim's apparel. To a tramp, the park bench is home for a night: to a prankster, there is nothing better for draping over statues. Uh, yes, a park bench may also be used by a person who wishes just to sit.

BARBARA JEAN MOORE, .S'c1zfior Page Foitx tl rec Nothing Nothing is very interesting. It is the ingredient of the hole in the doughnut. The world was made of nothing, and there was quite a bit of nothing left over so that is why there is so much nothing in the world today. Nothing makes up the middle of a post-hole. A vacuum is just crammed full of nothing. Nothing is what a mischievous boy says he is doing when his mother questions him. Noth- ing is what I like to do most of the time, and that is what my father says I shall amount to. Dehydrated water has a lot of nothing in it. This is what I usually find when I come home late for supper. The little man that vvasn't there and Harvey, the six-foot rabbit, ride around on miniature nothings. Frameless glasses without lenses consist entirely of genuine nothing. This, also, is what students usually do in study hall. Nothing is signified by putting it inside a circle called a zero. One of the most popular methods of expressng nothing is the use of the letters 'e", "t", and "C" in that order followed by a period. So you see nothing is really many things.

DIAMANDO TOMARAS, Sub-Fvfcshman F Tragedy 'llhe jungle steamed silently under the molten rays of the blood- red llrazilian sun. Scores of azure--hued insects llitted incessantly about the small clearing. Now and then a raucous call of a strange bird floated down from the top of the tall cliff which overlooked the tiny break in the vast jungle. Suddenly, the bushes on one side of the clearing parted, and an unkempt, haggard-looking white man, staggered under the weight of a large pack, made his way into the clearing. Vvith a sigh of satisfaction, he dropped his unwieldy bur- den to the ground and proceeded to examine an ancient parchment which he took from inside his shirt. Apparently satished by his ex- amination, he walked slowly toward the base of the towering cliff and began to thrash around in the dense undergrowth. Abruptly, a shout of joy broke from his lips as he found that which he sought-- a small, dark opening in the side of the hill. Eagerly, he plunged both arms deep into the yawning cavity and withdrew them spilling- over with ancient gold coins. Laughing hysterically, he reached greedily for more of the golden treasure. Suddenly, he gave a violent start, and an expression of amazement akin to terror flashed upon his swarthy face. Slowly he lurched to his feet and stared dumbly at the trickle of blood which dripped slowly from the closely- set punctures on his rapidly swelling and blackening arm. As though unable to comprehend what had happened, he stood gazing vacantly at the ground as the deadly llushmaster glided into the tangled vege- tation, and then, with a convulsive shudder, he fell face-downward upon the glittering heap of precious metal. 'llhe many-colored insects had vanished, and overhead, a vulture circled lazily in the sky.

He looked around pene- tratingly with his steel-blue eyes until he caught sight of his horse. lt was a paint, full of the same apparent untiringness as that of his master. The cool morning breeze scattered "Shorty's" sunburned, ironish-colored hair as he Opened the corral gate and unhitched his lariat from his saddle. With the ease that comes from continual usage, he roped and saddled his horse. He swung himself lazily into the saddle and rode silently Off towards the distant blue haze of the Rockies.

All-School Play With "frills and feathersu the University High School production of "Feathers in a Galef' by Pauline Jamerson and Reginald Lawrence, was pre- sented under the direction of Miss Baum, April 7, in Gregory Hall, before an amused and responsive audience. The play of l804 vintage centers around three widows who are to be sold at public auction unless one or all of them find a husband. Matilda and Phoebe are living off the bounty of Annabelle. Mr. Thatcher, the parson, is about to propose to Annabelle when a roving sea cap- tain, Seth Barnabas, puts into port.

One of our exercises is called the "mirror," Two people face each other. Une changes his expression, and the other follows as if he were a mirror. This is fun. VVe welcome all new members. Www... ns Activities s-s Cowboy dancing was the most energetic activity. The thirty-four participants met in the gym, where they danced to the calls of Miss Turnell. A few of the advanced dancers also tried their hand at callings. Cowboy dancing did not con- tinue the second semester. The war discussion group was one of the busiest activities. This club saw movies, had several discussions led by student chairmen, and heard several speak- ers. Their outstanding guest speakers were Mr. Wang, who told them about the political troubles of China, and Mr. Meteyka, who talked to the club about the governments of Germany and Japan. The ping pong activity expanded to include several other games. Badminton seemed to be the most popular game. Tournaments among the members encour- aged each to do his best. The wide variety of recreational events made this activity popular with those who like active sports. The aeronautics club worked navigation problems, studied aerodynamics, made airplane models, and saw many films and film strips. The group was com- posed of underclassmen who were interested in aeronautics, but whose schedules did not permit them to be in the regular aeronautics class. The members of the science club engaged in individual experiments in the various lields of science. It was not unusual to find one person working with explosives, another working wth electricity, and still another doing a biology experiment. The chess club had fewer members this year, but they had the same enthusi- asm as former members have had. No regular tournament was held, although there was competition among the participants. VVhen an evenly matched game was being played, this was the quietest group. , The art group was able to try many types of artistic creation. Block printing, leather tooling, modeling, and all types of painting, were available to any student who joined this activity. 2 0,0 'UN .. Vo 5553 G A f ,E E 'T I - 7 '. 5: 5 57' 1 2 X.

Second Row-Mr. Birdzell, Tom Benner, Bill Schoonmaker, Doug Weitzel, Jim Card, Bill Jackson, Tyke Lessaris, Mr. Robert Allen. Players Captain Bill Schoonmaker, a returned letterman, led the team through a very successful season and was an excellent leader as well as a fine player. Always at his best when the going was toughest, Bill's height, drive, and scoring ability made him one of the outstanding centers in the state. "Stoop's" place will be difficult to fill, and he will always be remem- bered as one of Uni High's most capable players. Bill jackson was the other returned letterman from 19-14's Championship team. Bill's previous experience and his defensive ability made him one of our most dependable regulars throughout the season. Tom Benner, well-known for his spectacular corner shots, reached his peak during the latter half of the season. His cooperative spirit, as well as his potent scoring, made Tom a good teammate. Doug Weitzel's height and rebounding ability made him a valuable asset to the team at all times. Doug improved rapidly all year, and he contributed much to a successful season. Sanford Johnston, although not a high scorer, could always be counted on to come through in a pinch with one of his famous long shots. Sam stood out in defense and set up many scoring opportunities for his teammates. Ed Deam, the Captain-elect, was a consistent performer from his forward spot, and he has a deadly one-hand shot from the free throw area. Lots of luck to you, "Greek," and we're counting on you to help bring about our third ANNUAL victory assembly next year. Peter Moyer made up what he lacked in height by his scrappiness and never-give-up attitude. His one-hand shot was well-developed, and when "hot," Pete "swished 'em" from all angles. Tony Fay's fine shooting eye and highly developed sense of humor made him a valuable squad member. Tony performed well all season and was especially outstanding in the Mahomet game. Harlan johnson, playing his first year on the Varsity Squad, was a capable per- former from his guard position. A senior this year, Harlan's fighting spirit and aggressive play will be missed next year. jim Card and Wes Schulthes, reserve centers, had perhaps the toughest assignments of any two centers in the County-guarding Bill Schoonmaker every night in practice. Jim improved greatly this year and developed a good shot with either hand. Wes was always ready to praise a good play, his good nature won for him the esteem of his teammates. Page Fifty -four Page The Season The 1944-45 edition of the County Champs started the season off with a bang by defeating a small but scrappy Ogden squad, 59-26. Bill Schoonmaker led the way with 21 points, followed by Ed Deam and Bill jackson with 10 points each, while the team as a whole shot a snappy .500 per cent. Captain Bill and Doug VVeitzel sparked the team to its second victory over Bellflower, 45-19, with 14 and 8 points, respectively. Uni High encountered its first real competition of the season in a strong Rantoul team, and bowed 28-26. The only bright light in an otherwise dismal picture was "Stoop's" 16 points. After defeating Buckley, 28-17, in a slow game, the Stoughton Street cagers suffered their second loss of the year at the hands of Catlin, to the tune of 27-22. Rounding into mid-season form, Uni High defeated Fisher, 50-395 Philo, 34-26, and Homer, 41-32, in three well-played games. Captain Schoonmaker led with 21 points against Fisher and 12 against Homer, while Bill Jackson was high with 13 against Philo. They were ably assisted by Ed Deam's 10 points in the Homer game, and Pete Moyer's 9 against Philo. A rugged Danville quintet handed the team its third loss at Danville, 55-35. Bill Schoonmaker was high scorer' for the game, with 20 points, but his teammates could not equal the more balanced Danville attack. ,lourneying to Qidney, the Orange and Blue cagers romped over the home team, 52-35, in a last warm-up betore the Mount Vernon Holiday Tournament. Flash! Ice storm hits Mount Vernon, as Salem defeats Uni High, 52-46, despite the de-icing effect of Bill Schoonmaker's 27 points. After defeating Tolono, 41-31 on Friday, Coach Birdzell's charges traveled to Long- view on Saturday. After a slow hrst half, the team started rolling, and came out on the long end of a 47-34 score. Tom Benner was particularly outstanding in this game, and his 15 points were essential to the victory. A weak Onarga Military team was easily defeated, 56-24, in the last game before the County Tournament. Mr. Schulthes' jokes were the highlight of this trip. Having beaten Monticello, 48-26, the team encountered Sadorus, and suffered a 44-34 defeat. The small gym, the hot shooting of an inspired Sadorus team, and the lack of fight shown by the boys all contributed to the loss. In a preview of the Regional Tournament, Uni High defeated a fighting St. joseph team, 38-25. The County Champs next engaged Villa Grove, the Okaw Valley Champs, in an infantile paralysis benefit game. Although losing, 48-43, the team played well and, given a few breaks, might easily have won. Following a 51-31 victory over a small Onarga quintet, the trusting heroes got their big chance. The varsity reserves played all but 4 minutes against Mahomet, and kept the game well under control. Tony Fay's 11 points led the team to a 40-30 victory. ln the last scheduled game before the tournament play, Uni High outlasted Hoopeston, 52-49, in a nip-and-tuck contest. Captain Bill hit his all-time high in this game with 32 points. After trouncing St. joseph, 41-21, in the opening game of the Champaign Regional Tournament, University High bowed to an aggressive Champaign High team which even- tually placed second in the State Tournament. The score, 64-32, does not necessarily indicate the comparative caliber of the two teams, as our boys played poorly in places, and Champaign was "hot." The boys hated to close the basketball season by losing in this fashion, but no hard feelings were created. The team has greatly appreciated the support given by parents, teachers, and class- mates this year. XN'e feel that many of our victories were partially due to the loyal fans who cheered us on. Thanks a million! Joe Ambrose, although unable to complete the season, was a valuable team member and a dependable player. Joe's determination and alert brand of ball more than made up for his lack of he1ght, and many times he came through with points when they were needed. Coach Robert Allen's Reserve squad had a fairly successful season, winning 8 games while losing 9. These boys will all be back next year and, with the one returning letterman, will .form next year's team. The reserve squad was composed of the following boys: Bill Allen, Ted Anderson, ,lim Casteel, John Harry, Gerry Johnson, Bud Mittendorf, Tom Moore. Donald Moyer, Hale Newcomer, Dick Noel, Harold Scott, and Fred VVill. Tikey Lessaris and Al Libman handled the managers' duties this year' and did a swell job. Tike's good humor and friendly attitude will be missed, but Al will be back next year to keep the players amused with his unlimited supply of jokes. The cheerleading situation should be well taken care of next year, as Cheerleaders Ruth Stouffer, Martha Deam, Audrey Greenman, Joanne VVright, Melissa Dobbins, Marilvn Daniels, and Hale Newcomer will be back. They did an excellent job, and the team appfe- ciated their efforts. Fifty five HC 77L7!V! Ufvfwr Left-"The Greek," holding hands during the Ogden game, while Pete and jim look on.

Champaign County Tournament In the second game of the 1945 County Tournament, Uni High defeated Ogden, -1-l-32. Although the Ogden team threw a scare into our boys by Jumping to a 4-0 lead, little trouble was encountered during the balance of the game. It was a different story, however, against Homer. Playing against an inspired team, the Orange and Blue were hard put to eke out a 28-27 victory. Homer played a very tight zone in order to hold down Bill Schoonmakerg nevertheless, the big center scored 18 points. In the semi-final round, the team repeated an earlier victory over Longview, 32-25. After trailing by five points at the quarter, the boys built up a two-point half-time lead, thanks to several corner shots by Tom Benner and some good work by Sam Johnson. The two teams played on even terms for the next eight minutes, but a last quarter rally decided the game in our favor. Duplicating the 19-l-1 tournament, University High engaged Rantoul in the cham- pionship game, and to the surprise of some -l-1 of 57 entrants in the guessing contest who reached the finals, our team was victorious, 32-30. Captain Bill Schoonmaker put in the winning basket this seventh of the gamej with 30 seconds to play, after Doug XVeitzel's rebound had brought about a 30-30 tie. Important factors in the victory were Bill's 18 points, his and Doug's aggressive rebounding, Tom Benner's and Ed Deam's alert brand of ball, and the defensive work of Guards Sam Johnston and Bill Jackson. The road to a second county championship contained many more obstacles than did the road which led to Uni I-ligh's first championship. This year, it was an uphill Fight, and the team went into the final game as the underdog. In the words of Coach Birdzell, "The boys had a goalg hard work and unswerving purpose enabled them to attain it." Fifty-srvvrz Track-I 944 S1 The 1944 track squad had one of the most successful seasons in recent years, losing only two scheduled meets while winning five. Triumphs were registered over Tolono and Sidney, 104-30-8, Aller- ton, 7lP41g Sadorus and St. Joe, 65-42-355 Mahomet and Homer, 100-Z2-11, and Danville, 67-45. Perhaps the highlight of the year was the County Track Meet, in which University High School placed second to Rantoul, 47-44. This represented quite an improvement over the dual meet between the two schools which Rantoul won, 86-31. Uni High's individual champions in the county were Captain Phil Hartman, 8803 Morris Butsch, shot put and pole vault, Dean Collins, high hurdles: and Dave Fulrath, high jump. Qther points were scored by Bud Little, second in the mileg Paul Hartman, second in the 440 and third in the 1003 Tony Fay, third in the pole vault, Stewie Daniels, fourth in the 8803 Jan Roosa, second in the high hurdles, third in the low hurdles, and tied for third in the high jump, the varsity relay team, which placed third 3 and the Freshman-Sophomore relay team, which placed fourth. The squad looked good in many relay meets, winning the class B division of the Mattoon Relays and placing first in the sprint medley at the Paris Relays. All but six letter-winners graduated: consequently, this year's squad will be composed mainly of underclassmen. However, with a few breaks, this inexperienced team may turn in some outstanding performances in the coming season. Pa l gc' Fifty oftball if The 1944-45 softball team experienced the worst season in recent years, winning only one game while losing seven. 'liwo of these losses were by one run, while many of the others could be attributed to inexperience and to injuries suffered by key men. Many underclassmen gained valuable experience this year, and they should form the nucleus for better teams in coming years. lloys who participated are as follows: joe Ambrose, Tom Benner, slim Card, Tony Fay, Bill Jackson, Harlan Johnson, Sanford Johnston, Peter Moyer, and Doug Weitzel, Seniors: Hill Allen, jim Casteel, Ed Deam, John Harry, Gerry Johnson, John Karraker, Bud Mittendorf, and Donald Moyer, underclassmen.

Allen, assistant coach. The purpose of this program has been to give all the boys in school an opportunity to engage in competitive sports. In this manner, boys who lacked the skill and experi- ence necessary to make the varsity squad in an interscholastic sport this year have gained valuable knowledge which will help them next year when they are playing on varsity teams. Six teams competed in a round-robin touch football tournament this fall, each team meeting every other team at least once. The Buzzards, captained by Pete Moyer and Ioe Ambrose, emerged as the victors with live wins against one loss. Two intramural basketball tournaments were conducted this winter, games being played every Tuesday and Thursday. The Indians, captained by Alex Katsinas, were declared the winners in the firstg while Buck Amsbary's Navy team won the second. Participation in the spring wrestling tournament was, for the first time, com- pulsory for all boys taking Physical Education. Individual champions, and their weight divisions are as follows: joe Ambrose, 120-1303 George Lambrakis, 130- 140, Tony Pay, 140-1505 Harlan Johnson, 150-1605 and lim Casteel, heavyweight. Despite the Sophomores' power in the dashes and weight events, the Seniors won the interclass track meet by a large margin. Thirty boys from all classes participated. This completed perhaps the best year of Intramural sports that University High School has everiknown. In future years, the program started this year will pay dividends if all boys who compete for Uni High against other schools have had the experience gained through several years of intramural competition. 6135 'Z Page Sun Girls, Intramurals P Sig Starting otli the year with a bang, the juniors, with lelortense Brigham as their captain, took the honors in the soccer tournament by defeating every team they played. The Seniors held a close second place with Roberta Bloom, captain. Barbara .lean Moore and Mar- jorie Hudson were the managers. Elinor Case won the tennis tournament in the spring. Again, in the volleyball tournament, the Juniors, this time led by Mary Lou VVarmouth, placed tirst by beating the Sophomores and Freshmen, and tying the Seniors. Defeated only by the Juniors, the Freshmen, under the leadership of Martha Paton, came in second. Nice going, Freshmen! Elizabeth Harding and Mary Lou War- mouth managed the volleyball tournament. Martha Dodds and Dorothy Adams, managers, ran oil the bas- ketball games in two separate tournaments. Beaten in volleyball and soccer, the detiant Seniors won both tournaments, though they had to break the fighting spirit of the juniors. The Seniors won every game they played. Hortense Brigham and Martha Deam in charge of badminton, Barbara Ann Garvey and Ann Kamerer of pingpong, and Barbara VVerstler and Charlotte Mittendorf of softball brought their re- spective tournaments to successful closes. By putting these sports in their programs and by entering them with enthusiasm, the girls have proved that sports play a major portion in their activities. 3 A Page S1113 one Izzxi' Ro-zv4lQutli Stoulfer, Nancy Gilbert, Barbara XVerstler, lrlortense Brigham. bicoud Ro'zufKlary Lou XVarmouth, janet ,-Xnderscn, Martha Deam. Wh ites MoTTo: "Fight to 1110 emi, zulzdizm' lose or win." Wlieii the girls drawing white hair ribbons joined the White Team, they elected Frances Brigham and Hortense Brigham as their leaders. Half the Whites tried out for the Wliite all-stars soccer team. lf the Blues were favored to win, the VVhites displaced any such idea with a swift corner in the last quarter-the only score made in the game. Girls of the team then honored the Blues by entertaining them in the gym and treats for all at the Union Build- ing. The VVhites also won the volleyball game in an exciting rally in the last few minutes of play. Then came the thrilling all-star basketball game. The Wl1ite Team, though they fought hard to the end, didn't have quite enough defense to stop the determined Blues. The Vlfhites are anxious to regain their prestige by winning the softball game.

Early in the fall the Blue Team, composed of half the number of girls i11 school, organized and elected Barbara Dobbins, captain and Elinor Case, co-captain. The captains did well in arousing interest for their first battle with the Whites. Although the lllues were defeated by 0116 goal, they played a good game and won the respect of their opponents. llarbara Dobbins created the team mascot, lrlluzo, to bring luck for the next game. l3luzo's charms were effective, for Elinor Case won the tennis title later in the fall. Enthusiasm was high for the volleyball championslaip. Although tl1e lilues were behind in the first half, the team made a forceful rally and were only a few points behind at the end of the game. ln the battle for basketball championship, Elinor Case, with a scoring streak of ll points, led the lllues to an l8-6 victory. just before the game, the lllues presented the NVhites with a huge bone as a keepsake.

The officers of the organization are: president, Martha Doddsg vice-president, Roberta Ikloomg secretary, Shirley Collins, and treasurer, Hortense Brigham. ooial Committee ln case youlve wondered who mal-:es out the social calendar for Pleiades, it's the girls on this committee under the leadership of Barbara VVQ-Irstler.

Intramural Board Harriet Shedd and the other girls on this board work hard making rules for girls' intramural tournaments and adding points for G.A.A. awards.

Junior Orchesis Under the able leadership of Charlotte Mittendorf, the members of junior Orchesis have worked hard and accomplished much this year. As well as developing grace in the girls' movements, the loco- motion movements give the girls a remarkable sense of rhythm.
