1922 - Boys Glee Club
The first meeting of the club seemed to start the thing right, for thirty-two boys
turned out, which was good for the first meeting. The club practiced every Thursday

proved to be a success. The songs they sang were "Yankee Doodle Boy" and the
High School Song, "We Love Old U. H. S.".

this opportunity to express our gratitude to those who helped us in the work of
publishing this annual."

Before this orchestra was started, some of us had become a little lazy with our
instruments but our enthusiasm was aroused and we have each taken them up
again with a desire to make ourselves worthy of the institution to which we belong.
