THE 1951 i7cJy O • 'ty . 1 ifcU Atw THE SENIOR CLASS , £ OF EDINA-MORNINGSIDE HIGH SCHOOL MINNEAPOLIS 10, MINNESOTA EDINAFOREWORD In the fall of 1949 the doors of our new Edina-Morningside High School were opened to begin the first year of training and education for us in our own school. We were the junior class, the oldest group in the school that first year. So we helped organize the Student Council, our student governing body,- the various clubs and com-mittees; and were the first to wear the uniforms of the new Edina Hornets as we endeavored to gain recognition and entrance to the Lake Conference the next season. W received our guidance in that formative year from Mr. E. L. Miller, superintendent; Mr. M. H. Kuhlman, principal; and Mr. L. J. Fick, assistant principal. This spring of 1951 will mark the first graduation from Edina High School. We of the first senior class this year are proud to be our school's first graduates. Although we have been together as a class in this high school only these past two years, we feel that we have worked together as a closely integrated group, each person dependent on the next, in the manner of a well-rehearsed play. Our life in school has been a rehearsal for the final result or production which we divide into four parts or acts. Act I is the faculty and administration: Mr. M. H. Kuhlman, superintendent; Mr. S. B. Mitchell, principal; and Mr. L. J. Fick, assistant principal. To each of these persons and all our teachers we owe a debt of gratitude for their wisdom and understanding to us always. Act II is our class as we have studied, worked, and played together to make our experiences pleasant memories in years to come. Act III is our activities and accomplishments in extra-curricular fields. Act IV is our athletic record we have achieved under the guidance of Mr. Bernie Cole, football, and Mr. Irv Nelson, basketball, as well as the many other men who have coached and helped us. Now we present to you the result of our years of rehearsal in the form of this production, the first "Whigrean." As you turn the pages to lift the curtain on our production, may each of you find your place in the cast of performers.

KUHLMAN SUPERINTENDENT We, the first graduating class of Edina-Morningside High School, respectfully dedicate this first "Whigrean" to Milton H. Kuhlman. It is our desire to acknowledge his work and continuing efforts in making the "Whigrean" possible. With outstanding leadership during the past two years as principal and superintendent of our school, he has established standards and traditions that have made secure our years as students. With understanding and consideration of us as individuals, he has guided us toward becoming a unified student bodv and has made memorable our social and educational experiences at Edina-Morningside High School.

Sitting are Mr. Ralph Nelson, trustee,- Mrs. James F. Richards, clerk; and Mr. Francis Hayes, trustee. BOARD OF EDUCATION The citizens of Edina and Morning-side have shown their confidence in the school board by voting through a bond issue of $75,000 in May, 1950, for athletic fields for the high school and again on February 20, 1951, by passing a bond issue of $1,528,000 for a new elementary school and additions to the high school and to the Morningside elementary school. This generous group of men and women, who hove brought to the community a new high in civic pride by taking the lead in improving educational facilities, have given freely of their time and talents. The only pay received by the school board is the confidence and gratitude of the community. The six citizens who comprise the Board of Education, are responsible for the present new high school building, the Edina and Morningside elementary schools, the forthcoming Edina-Morningside elementary school, and all the equipment belonging to the school system. Voting bond issues for the construction of the schools is only the beginning of their duties, for they must see that the work is done as inexpensively and well as possible. The maintenance of the property follows. Each year the board makes out a budget which includes the salaries of the faculty, janitors, other employees, cafeteria expenses, new equipment, and many details for the efficient operation of the school system.

In the fall of 1949 we came from many surrounding high schools: Southwest, West, Washburn, St. Louis Park, Breck, and Blake. We carried with us that first year many ties from our old schools which were difficult to break away from. To help unite and bring our class closer together, junior class officers were elected. Ben Platter was elected president; Jim Cardie, vice-president; Janet Cruzen, secretary; and Dwight Peterson, treasurer. As Juniors, we promoted and undertook such projects as the sale of "Hornet" T-shirts, our class play, our class ring selection, and the Rosebud Ramble Spring Dance; and by the end of the year we had made great strides toward making our class a unified body of spirit and enthusiasm. The following year we returned, eager and Jim Cardie Nancy Engstrom Robert Hale HONOR ROLL Helen Harris William Jordan Paul Larsen willing to make it the best one of our lives. Field trips to the University of Minnesota, the Federal Reserve Bank, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press,- the colorful Winter Whirl; our intense campaign against vandalism,- and our Senior Class Play in the spring all clearly marked our last year at Edina High. Events such as the Junior-Senior Prom with Percy Hughes' Band, Baccalaureate Exercises, Senior Breakfast, and Class Night activities will always linger in our memories. We shall remember the able leadership given us by our advisers: Mrs. Janet Schroeder, Miss Ardyce LaPray, Mr. Rolland Ring, and Mr. Ted Greer. Finally, Commencement Night came, bringing down the curtain on us one hundred and thirteen Seniors who leave Edina High School as students forever. We only hope that Edina remembers us as long as we shall remember Edina.

Pago thirly.fi eJUNIORS Perhaps the busiest among busy classes this year was the junior class, for it was its job to earn five-hundred dollars in order to give the junior-senior prom. Two-hundred and ninety-five dollars was taken in by candy sales in the lunchroom at noon. This, combined with the proceeds from a paper sale and class dues, gave the seniors free admittance to the prom, which was held at the Automobile Club, May 25. The juniors and seniors danced to the music of Percy Hughes. Another of the major projects of the class of '52 was the class play, "January Thaw," which, under the direction of Delmar Fredrickson, was presented early in the spring. The cast, Jerry Sundf, Doats Caron, Carolyn Blaul, Donna Hanson, Katie Beim, Dick Lair, Sidney Barris, Martha Wyatt, Roger Whitney, Roger Howe, Bob Gillette, Lori Lundgren, and Jack Anderson, and the stage hands worked very Scenes from »ho Junior Class Play, "January Thaw" Dick Lair, Kolia Boim, Carolyn Blaul Martha Wyatt, Sidney Barris, Jerry Sundt, Maria Caron.

Their efforts were rewarded by a financial and artistic success. Some of the juniors also participated in the three one-act plays given this spring. The junior class joined with the senior class in two activities during the year. One was the door-to-door canvas made in an effort to pass the school bond issue. They distributed pamphlets to the citizens of Edina and Morningside which gave the facts concerning the balloting. The issue was passed by a larger number of voters than have ever turned out for such an election. The second cooperative project was International Day, held March 29, for which students from foreign lands were guests. Both the hosts and the guests learned much about each others' homelands and would like to make International Day an annual occasion. The juniors were highly ardent promoters of school spirit. They had a great deal to do with the organization of the Pep club and two of the members of the class, Patty Weed, and Martha Wyatt, have been cheer-leaders for two years. A class with so many activities needs capable direction, which was provided by John Motion, Miss Mary Ellen Alexander, John Lilja, Dominic Krez, and Ben Lundquist, faculty advisers. The class of '51 feels that if is leaving Edina in safe and capable hands when it leaves, for the class of '52 has shown over and over its dependability and initiative. It appreciates all that '52 has done and wishes if success and happiness in its senior year. Poge thirty-jixFront row: D. Caron, C. Berlin, Chamberlain. A. Biaul, C. Blaul. K. Anderson. Row two: S.

They have built a reputation of cooperation and participation in all activities at Edina, including drama, athletics, clubs, and journalism. Garry Butterfield and Carol Gunn both received superior ratings in the declamation contest: Garry in the memorized oratory division and Carol in extemporaneous speaking. During the next two years Edina should enjoy many victories on the athletic field. Jim Dick Mans, president, Jono Conrad, secretary, Janet Diebold, vice-president, Jim Winfrey, treasurer.

In winter Merton Bell, Dick Mans, Bill Kelly, and Jim Joslin were on the A squad in basketball. Playing on the B squad were Chuck Webster, Roger Berglund, Phil Hummel, Tom Nelson, and Dean Dennis. Four sophomores, Don Leary, Jim Joslin, Judy Veilleux, and Bill Kelly are well remembered for their singing performance at the "Spring Spree." They did much to flavor the party. The sophomores have had two class meetings this year in which they discussed school spirit and planned a class picnic to be held at Camp Ihduhapi this spring. Under the guidance of its faculty adviser. Miss Ardis Towler, Miss Ursula Costello, David Carlson, and John Ehlert, the class of '53 has set a good record and is gathering speed all the time. It sets a lively pace for the rest of the school. Front row: S. Zimmerman, Volk, Rood, Witts, Trueman, Tell. Row two: Sandell, Tris ko, Veilleux, Rosholt, Robbins, Stowe, Wonnor.

At Christmastime the class managed to exceed its Red Cross quota by holding an auction. Some of the more choice orticles went for the inflationary price of seventy-five cents. Large crowds attended the four dances given by the ninth grade class and clubs during the year. The dances, "Autumn Nocturne," "Frosty Frolic," "Cupid's Caper," and "Spring Fling," were successful both financially and socially. The class of '53 has been one of the most active and cooperative in the school. Edina looks forward expectantly to three more years of fine performance.

GRADE EIGHT GRADE SEVEN The eighth grade, with one year ahead of junior high and one year behind them, went into full swing this year. They had two moonlite dances: one in the fall and the second on Valentine's Day. The whole class entered into these activities with the same enthusiasm they put into their athletics. Mrs. Rauha Hagemeister, Rodney Schmidt, James Chapman, and Orville Engen are class advisers. The ordeal of being inaugurated into junior high school is at once a most thrilling and bewildering experience: the newness of the building; the strange faces; the change in schedule, the close association with the high school. The seventh grade of 1951 made a very fine start with two successful dances; one at Christmas and another on Valentine's Day. They also participated in a junior high carnival, sponsored by the girls' clubs, for which each club had a different booth to earn extra money for its club. The seventh grade faculty advisers. Miss Marilyn McGarry, Elmer Stolte, Mrs. A. Quarnstrom, and Robert Neilson, pronounce the year a successful and eventful one. It is certain that the closs of '56 will do much for Edina in the next five years. Page forty-«hro«SEVENTH GRADE BEGINS FIRST YEAR WITH PEP AND ENTHUSIASM Front row: J. Allen, T.

In so doing the staff has worked and put in many hours for which the only thanks will be the students' final whole-hearted approval of the yearbook. Since this was the first annual, deadlines were met to the exact minute and mistakes were quite frequent. It has not been all work, though. We have had our share of good times. The editors, John Ros-siter. Bill McArthur, and Clint Odell along with their adviser. Miss Marilyn McGarry, attended the National High School Press convention in Chicago. Much in the line of yearbook information was acquired there. Along with other difficulties, that of finances loomed the largest. It was the job of Paul Larsen to raise t h e needed amount. He came through very well. We sold candy also to offset the rising printing and engraving costs. Through the unceasing efforts of editors and staff, cooperation of faculty and administration, our first Edina "Whigrean" is possible.

The Whigrean staff of 1951 would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to the persons whose help and efforts were invaluable to the production of this book. We give our thanks to Mr. Jerry Brown of Greene Engraving for his expert advice in the book's planning; Mr. J. Orval Engen who took many of our photographs,-Mr. V. F. Woodard for his photographic help; Golling Studios for their cooperation with the senior pictures; Mr. Irv Kreidberg of North Central Printing; the "Buzzette" Mrs. Rauha Hagemeister, adviser, who financed our trip to the N.S.P.A.

BUZZETTE KEEPS JOURNALISTS BUSY Not only is a school newspaper an activity which students can enjoy and one in which they can also participate, but it is a record of school activities, and a link between the school and the community. For that reason the staff tries to include stories about P.T.A. and other community-interest stories. The "Buzzette" has been issued ten times this year by the staff made up of sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Their jobs range from editor-in-chief to ad manager and from art and page editors to reporters. Formation of an editorial board has been one of the projects of the Buzzette staff. The purpose of this board, made up of the adviser, editor, page editors, superintendent Milton Kuhlman, the principal, and the athletic director, is to discuss problems of the paper. All in all the school staff has not only made the paper interesting to the students, but indeed a record of pictures and events of the school. Staff. Front row: Mary Ann Young.

Pogo forty-nineThe Edino-Morningside Senior High Student Council, under the presidency of Kent Hodgson, the guidance of Mr. Mitchell, and the suggestions of the student body, has had a very successful year. It has contributed to our school in many ways in omuse-ment, improvement, and goodwill programs. The first activity sponsored by the council was the Homecoming celebration with the queen's coronation and the dance. In order to broaden the rules, which were formerly limiting only Edina couples to Edina's dances, the council formulated a new social policy which permits each Edina student to bring two registered guests. The auditorium programs which every student anticipates were all chosen by student council committee members. Later "turnabout" day, a chance to see the other side of the picture for many students, was planned and carried out. , Trying to combat idleness and hall wandering the Student Council has added two ping-pong tables STUDENT COUNCIL PLANS ACTIVITIES FOR THE YEAR Clint Odell—treasurer Kent Hodgson—president Doug O'Brien—vice president Jerry Sundt—secretary and has started a tournament between the students. The council also took the advantage of the Curtiss Magazine Drive and with the money earned, contributed to the band for new uniforms, to next year's annual, and to the Red Cross Drive. The Council is also helping to spread its name and goodwill throughout the city, state, and community by sending Edina students to various conventions. The Student Council has indeed, helped to put forth the wishes of the student body to provide entertainment, education, and the chance to better themselves in many ways. Although Edina's lettermen's club was slow in getting started, it was officially organized in March, 1951, under the direction of Mr. Dominic Krez. Any boy receiving a letter is eligible for membership in the club. Over forty-five boys are now members and its growth is certain to increase rapidly from year to y cr.

SENIOR RED CROSS One of the first organizations of the new Junior-Senior High School was the American Junior Red Cross Council. The members of this council "believe in service for others, for our country, our community, and our school, and for better human relations throughout the world." These principles are carried out by the council and the Junior Red Cross members in such activities as the filling of educational chess and gift boxes for foreign countries. At Christmas and Easter, greetings cords, menu covers, place mats, troy favors, holiday cops, napkins, toys, gifts, and baskets of fruits were sent to hospitals and community centers. Later in the year playing cords and magazines were collected for service men. Miss Ardis Towler is the Red Cross adviser.

Two years of competitive football have been played under the supervision of Mr. Bernie Cole since the birth of Edina High School. Mr. Cole came to Edina from Duluth Central. Immediately before his stay there, he ran up the longest consecutive win streak in the state at Marshall, Minnesota. Edina was very fortunate to acquire this mentor. The first game in Edina's football history was Head Coach Bernie Cole played against Excelsior under their lights. The contest ended in a 13-0 victory for the hosts, but it proved to the crowd that the Hornets were of Lake Conference caliber. Edina next traveled to Minnehaha Academy where the defending Private League Champions won their fourteenth in a row, 19-7. Dave Ryerse put Edina ahead with a touchdown in the first quarter but Minnehaha came back with three touchdowns to win. The first Edina victory came at the expense of the Robbinsdale Bees, 25-0. The following week, Edina made it two straight victories by nosing out a fighting St. Paul Breck eleven, 22-19. The amazing part about this game was the fact that the Hornets rollied from a 19-7 half-time deficit to .oull out the win. Edina's 1949 Homecoming cry] "Sting the Bloomin' Bears" backfired as a powerful, 8th rated team in the state, Bloomington, trounced the under-manned Hornets. Edina traveled to Fergus Falls next where they were defeated 21-0. The following week the Green and White again took to the road only to be downed by a strong Hutchinson team. The 1949 season was climaxed by the first annual football banquet at which John Rossiter was elected honorary captain. The 1950 season opened very strong indeed with 25 returning lettermen. Prospects looked bright as Edina became an official member of the Lake Conference for the first time.

Nail Him Neal Edina got off to a good start in the 1950 season with a convincing 7-0 victory over Bloomington there. Bloomington went on to capture the Minnesota Valley Conference Title. Dave Ryerse scored the lone touchdown in the opening period and then ran the extra point. The following week, Edina bowed in'o the Lake Conference with a loss at the hands of Excelsior, 13-7. Dave Ryerse made a sensational 64 yard scoring run. The gridders traveled to Sleepy Eye next and dumped St. Marys, 21-7. The Park-Edina game of the next week was canceled because of rain ond then re-scheduled November 4. The Hornet's suffered their second conference loss the following Friday to Wayzata, 12-0. In what was the best played game of the season, Edina bowed to the co-champions. Mound, 20-7. Except for two disastrous plays, the Hornets outplayed the Mohawks throughout most of the game. Edina nearly completed its homecoming desire to "Edynamife the Warriors" as they came within 10 seconds of a victory over Hopkins. Sparked by Jay Olson and Dave Ryerse, the Green and White led 13-7 with 10 second” to go. At this point Hopkin's all-conference Don Moore p'unaed his way »o a tally to tie the score. Fortunately, the try for the extra point was no good. Fired up by the Hopkins tilt, the victory-thirsty Hornets virtually routed Robbinsdale the next week, 25-6. Jon Rodine led the scoring department with three touchdowns. Charles Trucker accounted for the other one. Rodine's 70 yard run to pay dirt with Kent Hodgson's fine blocking paving the way, highlighted the evening. In the final game of the season, an explosive St. Louis Park team blasted Edina to tie Mound for the conference chamoionship. The score was 25-12. Laurence Lundqren, Jay Olson, and Howard Lof-quist were all picked for second team all-conference honors. The trio was also mentioned for oil-state awards. Jack Wells, city high school athletic director, was toastmaster at the second annual football banquet. Joe Markley of Minneapolis Central and Archie Porter Juggles Hopkins Pass! Skalback of St. Paul Washington, city football champs were principal speakers. 18 lettermen were announced. Special mention should be given to Dave Ryerse, who carried most of the offensive load along with Jay Olson and Jon Rodine. The brunt of the hard-charging line was led by Kent Hodgson, Harvey Lof-quist, Howard Lofquist, and Robin McClaren. Vicious tackling marked the secondary line-backing play of Dave Sorum and John Rossiter. Neal Periich, Tom Young and Dick Harley held down end posts. Jay Olson was elected honorary captain and John Rossiter was acting captain. Page seventyB-SQUAD CRIDDERS The B-Squad football team is pictured in white with the varsity. Front row: R. Berglund. D.

Almost every night after school these courageous underclassmen put the varsity through a rugged scrimmage or practice. They are almost as responsible for the varsity's showing on Friday as the A squad boys are themselves. The A squad boys will always remember the rugged workouts the Bees gave them. Besides these duties, they serve as a constant feeder of material to the varsity team year after year. This year is no exception. Some boys like Mert Bell, Bob Willey, Jim Hedges, Jack Johnson, Dick Anderson, Chuck Webster, and Bob Lee are sure to help next year's varsity team.

The highlight of the season was the 13-6 victory over St. Louis Park. The game was close all the way and well-played by both teams. The experience gained by the ninth graders under Ted Greer, their coach, will be an asset for the school in the next three years. MIDGET FOOTBALL TEAM The midgets gave a good account of themselves during the 1951 season. The last game of the season pitted them against St. Louis Park, which was also undefeated.

Page seventy-twoBASEBALL In the first gome of the 1950 seoson the Hornets were defeated by a good-fielding St. Paul Park team 5-0. Snowy weather conditions had its effect on the play of both teams. Doug McWhorter pitched good ball, despite the fact, allowing only three hits The Hornets were nipped 7-4 by St. Louis Park in the second game. Doug McWhorter swatted out a double and Kent Hodgson a single for Edina's lone hits. The next game, held at Wayzata, was a free slugging affair which ended in favor of the home team 12-7. The Hornets provided plenty of timber as Jay Olson placed a home run over the left field fence and Tom Ricks collected three hits in four trips to the plate. After having two successive games rained out, Edina played its last game of the season against Mound. The Hornets were leading all the way, but were edged by a lastinning Mohawk rally, 12-11. Last year's lettermen were: Kent Hodgson, Manford Husebo, Doug McWhorter, Neal Perlich, Jon Rodine, Tom Roth, Jay Olson, John Rossiter, Lee Pertl, Tom Ricks, Jerry Roberts, and the student manager was Roger Howe.

IM| Ricks the Slugger Nine rteurning lettermen, a season of ball under their belts, and the promise of a new field all tend to make the 1951 baseball season look promising for the Hornets.

Pago so,enty-threoBASKETBALL Head Coach Irv Nelson Edina greeted the 1950 hardwood season with what one might call an "all veteran team." Having lost no-one from last year's squad, the Hornets looked good, boasting good height and speed. The Green and White quintet tasted defeat in their first two non-conference starts. Washburn handed Edina a 46-30 licking which was followed by Southwest's 41-27 victory over the stunned Hornets. Mound provided Edina its first Lake Conference opposition. Edina quickly retaliated from its early defeats as they handed the Mohawks a 54-52 loss. The Hornets gained recognition and respect as they added Excelsior, a pre-season title contender, to their victory list by handing them a decisive 49-30 shellacking. After conquering Wayzata 36-31, Edina had gained the self-confidence and spirit necessary for their next encounter, which was the perennially tough Hopkins team. Hopkins, however, displayed the type of basketball which brought them to the state tournament this year and belted the Edina team 52-33. Suffering its first conference loss from Hopkins showed up the following week, as the Hornets were upset by Robbinsdale. St. Louis Pork, Mound, and Excelsior scored three consecutive wins over Edina after the Green ond White returned from the Christmas holidays. Posting a second conference win over Wayzata helped the squad's spirit as they faced an FINAL CONFERENCE STANDINGS • Won Lost Pet.

The upset of the season was garnered by the surprising victory Edina captured over the Warriors. Hopkins had lost only four games on their home floor in eight years, so the victory was quite an accomplishment, in addition to the fact that it took Hopkins out of the conference driver's seat and gave St. Louis Park a chance for a title tie. The Orioles of St. Louis Park drubbed Edina 67-47 in a memorable game for Park. The Park game brought the season to a close, with the exception of the sub-district playoff held at Robbinsdale. In that game, Edina and Excelsior tussled on even terms throughout the contest; but when the final buzzer sounded Excelsior was on the winning end of a 45-42 score. Traveling to Spirit Lake, Iowa, Edina racked up a 48-38 victory. The trip was an overnight affair and will long be remembered by all those present. Graduation will nip all of Edina's starters from this year's team with the exception of one. Dave Ryerse, John Rossiter, Jay Olson, Jon Rodine, Tom Young, Kent Hodgson, and Neal Perlich have played their last game for the Green and White on the hardwoods. Kent Hodgson captained the Hornets through their first year of conference play and well- Manager Bill Cooley Top to Bottom Jay Olson Jon Rodine John Rossiter Chuck Trucker Jack Johnson Page seventy-fiveJohnny Rodine Jumping! CaDlain Hodgson Sets One Up! deserved making the all-conference team along with teammate Neal Perlich. Perlich carried the bulwark of the team's offense and after leading the conference in scoring for many weeks, ended up in third place in the point-getting totals behind Dave Tschimperle of Hopkins and Dick Seaburg of St. Louis Park. Next year will be a rebuilding year, but coach Irv Nelson has Jim Joslin and 6'5" Jack Johnson as a nucleus to work from. Although the bond issue was passed for the large adjoining field house, it is doubtful whether or not it will be ready for the Hornets' use next winter. As in other sports, Edina's basketball team played an independent schedule during the first basketball campaign in 1949-1950. Keeping one eye on their next seasons debut in the Lake Conference play, the Green and White sharpened their attack by playing eighteen games. Although they boasted only six wins in their initial year, the experience gained was most valuable. Under the tutelage of head coach, Irv Nelson, who came to Edina from Washington High School in Souix Falls, South Dakota, Edina gained prominence and respect throughout its opening season. Coach Nelson wasted no time in scheduling games with next year's Lake Conference foes. Bernie Cole, football coach, assisted Nelson in his coaching duties. Cole made an impressive record with the "B" squad aside from helping with "A" squad maneuvers. The fact that Edina scheduled games with Bloomington, Delano, Blake, Deephaven, and Minnehaha Academy, teams which finished on the top or near there in their respective leagues, provided an example of the type opposition which the Green and White quintet faced in their freshmen year. Considering that Edina would lose no one via graduation, the prospects for the next season loomed bright. The first year of basketball at Edina undoubtedly created a team soirit and sense of poise which is so valuable in any soort. Although graduation did not take any Edina cagers. West and Mound High Schools did. Letter-men Doug McWhorter and Tom Roth transferred to those high schools respectively. Other lettermen were Neal Perlich, Kent Hodason, Dave Ryerse, Jay Olson, John Rossiter, Many Husebo, Tom Young, and Jon Rodine. Poge seventy-six Left: Jocko fires for S. P.

The first task was to build a rink and flood it. The boys worked with enthusiasm and were soon practicing on the new rink. The season's record is full of contest against superior teams, but in each game, the pucksters (notched and bettered the spirit of their opponents. The season's highlights were a trip to Rochester and a 3 3 tie with St. Louis Park. The team was coached by Ted Greer. Hale Protects Against BlakeWRESTLING In the foil of 1949 a squad of twenty non-ex-perienced boys started wrestling. They worked out hard all season but had few matches. However, they did wrestle Robbinsdale, Wayzata, and University High. They did not win any of these meets, but made a good showing. Some of the boys individually did win some of their matches and showed good promise for next season. These boys were Dave Sorum, Jim Trisler, • and Art Bailey, who were to form the nucleus of next year's squad. This year Edina's wrestling squad participated as full fledged members of the Lake Conference with last year's coach Mr. Emerson, and a new coach, Mr. John Motion, two able and experienced coaches. Some forty boys started the season. This later dropped to twenty eight. The squad participated in thirteen meets and all members showed signs of improvement. The squad came through with two consecutive victories, one against University High and one against Robbinsdale.

Sheldon Anderson and Jim Blakeborough each gained one point in the regional tournament. Next year's squad will feel the loss of these seniors: Art Bailey, Jim Blakeborough, Bill Latham, Dave Sorum, Leonard Mills, and Dean Korthof, manager. Next year's squad will have more experienced men than did this year's squad. The coach will be looking forward to boys with three years' experience and a much larger squad. The graduating seniors wish the best of luck to next year's squad, with many pins and many victories. They shall not forget the sportsmanship and spirit of competition taught us by our coaches, Mr. Emerson and Mr. Motion.

Coach Irv Nelson's cindermen have already begun this year's track season. Headed by last year's sole letterman, Dave Ryerse, the Hornets are making good use of the new track. Last year Edina was well represented in the Metropolitan Meet, held at the University field house, as Dave Ryerse captured first place in the 440 yard dash. The squad was not allowed to enter the state meet but did travel to Northfield, Minnesota, to participate in the Carlefon Relays. The Edina track team received a total of eleven points with Ryerse the main point-getter with a total of nine. He took first in the 440 yard dash and second in the 220 yard dash and ran a leg in the 830 yard relay. Along with him in the relay ran Ben Platter, Doug O'Brien, and Tom Young. The Hornets traveled to Mound and participated in a quadrangular meet. Mound, Wayzata and Deephaven were also represented. The Hornets took third as Dave Ryerse again won first in the 4 0 and second in the 220. Jim Joslin placed fourth in the shot put, Tom Young fourth in the 440, and the 880 yard relay team placed third to round out Edina's scorina. Dave Ryerse, Tom Young, Ben Platter, and Doug O'Brien represented Edina at the St. Thomas Relays to wind up the track season. They entered the mile relay, the 440 yard relay, and the 880 yard relay.

Edina linkmen, last year's winning squad, will be at full strength again this year. Bill McArthur and Bob Hale, last year's only lettermen, along with John Prentice, Manford Husebo, John Saddler and others plan to make this year's Edina golf team tough competition for Lake Conference foes. Coach Con Emerson's boys lost their initial match last year but went on to cop the next three in a row and wind up with a record of three wins and one loss. The first match was played at Meadowbrook Golf Course and found the Hornets on the small end of a 9 to 3 score with St. Louis Park the victor. Bob Hale and Manford Husebo won points for Edina. With each of the four men. Bill McArthur, Bob Hale, John Prentice, and John Saddler winning points the squad was an easy victor over Minnehaha Academy. Following this contest, Edina defeated Mound in a close match 6Vi to 5Vst. The win was decided by John Saddler's crucial putt late in the match. A match with Robbinsdale and a return match with Mound were cancelled because of poor weather conditions and a conflict with Mound's examination schedule. The Hornets wound up their season in a blaze of glory as they dumped Wayzata by the lop-sided score of 11 Vi to Vi. Page eighty-two John Prentice Drives OneHAVE SUCCESSFUL FIRST YEAR Kneeling: Harlan Hauskins, Dave Ryerse, Ben Plotter. Standing: Coach Ted Greer, Bob Laughlin, Bill Latham, Bob Hale, John Bacon, Ted Burton. Headed by Ben Platter, the Edina tennis team has already begun practice in order to sharpen up for this year's season. As in all other sports, the members of the tennis squad will belong to the Lake Conference and participate in a round-robin with all Lake Conference schools. Ted Greer, last year's coach, will repeat as head mentor for the squad and expects to have a fine season if last year's showing is of any significance. Lost year's squad consisted of: Ben Platter, Dave Ryerse, Bob Hale, Harlan Hauskins, Bill Latham, Ted Burton, John Bacon, and Bob Laughlin in that order of seniority. Platter lettered at St. Louis Park, while only a sophomore, before attending Edina. He also lettered last year along with Dave Ryerse, Bob Hale, and Harlan Hauskins. Last year's squad played a number of schools from the neighboring communities. West was their opponent and, unfortunately, first victor. They dropped a pair of matches to St. Louis Park and two to Deephaven for the season's only defeats. They conquered Mound once and triumphed over Robbinsdale on two different occassions to make their totals for the season three wins and five losses. Ben "Number 1 Man" Platter! Page eighty-threeINTRAMURAL SPORTS Volleyball Action An intramural sports program has been in operation in the Edina-Morningside High School again this past year. Intramural sports have been organized to provide a chance for those who are not members of the interscholastic athletic squads to participate in athletics. This gives all boys an opportunity to put to use the knowledge and fundamentals of the various sports which they learn in physical education. The activities usually are similar to the major sports that are in season except that certain modifications have to be made because of the nature of the activities and amount of equipment and facilities that are available. The main activities, free throw contests, ping pong, and other sports have been a part of the intramural program. Practically every boy who is a member of a varsity squad took advantage of the opportunity to gain experience by participating in intramural sports when he was in the junior high school. When the present tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders were members of the junior high school, there were 130 boys or over 80 per cent of the boys who were in school participated in intramural athletics. During the present school year, approximately 80 boys have taken part in intramural sports. These Intramural in Action boys have enjoyed the opportunity of having fun while engaging in competitive sports with their classmates. Mr. Howard Merriman, boys' physical education instructor, is director of the intramural sports program which include a large variety of activities which meet the interests of all boys and girls and hopes that the plans to enlarge the high school will provide facilities so that this will be possible.

Throughout the spring, there are many events and activities which occur after the time this yearbook goes to press. Although we can mention these activities, we are unable to take any pictures of them. One of these events was the Declamation Contest. The participants spent many weeks in preparation. They worked hard and long, all hoping to attain the coveted goal of a state championship. The contest was divided into five divisions: humorous, dramatic, oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and manuscript reading. In the humorous division were the following entries: "My Financial Career," Doug Sarff; "The Debutante," continued on next page Page eighty-eightFritzie Davis; "Angel of Mercy," Nancy Will-son; "Mama Spank Me," Pat Sarff; "Born Yesterday," Marcia Stonhouse; "Intermission at the Theater," Janet Beggs.

Paul Larsen and Dean Korthof were in the extemporaneous speaking section, and Carol Gunn was in extemporaneous manuscript reading group. One Act Play group also performed. In the all-school contest, Gary Butterfield, Paul Larsen, Douglas Sarff, Carol Gunn, and Maria Caron all received superior ratings and a chance to compete in the district contest. Doug Sarff and Gary Butterfield both received superiors and chances in the regionals. Doug Sarff was an alternate in the regions. Mr. Delmar Fredrickson and Miss Ursula Costello were the coaches. 1.
