WHIGREAN 6 V- PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS EDINA-MORNINGSIDE HIGH SCHOOL MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTAsi 1952 WHIGREAN ''Turn backward, turn backward, oh time in thy flight"—The swiftly passing years from enthusiastic junior high school days to graduation leave only a dim impression on our memory. We have tried to capture images of these fleeting hours so that in future years the pages of this book will call to mind the wealth of these experiences. CO-EDITORS KATIE BEIM JACK JOHNSON FACULTY ADVISER MISS MARILYN McGARRY Page twoTHE BUILDERS All are architects of fate, Working in these walls of time; Some with massive deeds and great, Some with ornaments of rhyme. Nothing useless is, or low, Each thing in its place is best; And what seems but idle show, Strengthens and supports the rest. For the structure that we raise, Time is with materials filled; Our to-days and yesterdays, Are the blocks with which we build. Truly, shape and fashion these, Leave no yawning gap between; Think not because no man see , Such things will remain unseen. In the older days of art, Builders wrought with greatest cate; Each minute and unseen part, For the Gods are everywhere. Let us do our work as we , Both the unseen and the seen, Make the house where gods my dwe , Beautiful, entire, clean. Else our lives are incomplete, Standing in these wolls ot time; Broken stairways, where the feet, Stumble os they seek to find. Build today, then strong and swe, With a firm and ample base; And oscending and secure, Shalt tomorrow find its p ace. Thus olone can we attain, To those turrets where the« Sees the world os one vast p And one roundless teach c Henry WodswotilYESTERDAYS TODAYS TOMORROWS Page five DEDICATION We, the senior graduates of 1952, dedicate this book to you, OUR PARENTS. It was through your interest and support that our education in Edina-Morningside High School was made possible. You gave us the very best administrators and faculty to guide our educational goals during our most formative and impressionable years. You also gave us courage when ours failed us in the face of difficulties, and inspiration to continue striving toward being useful, worth-while individuals. There have been times we have felt rebellious, resentful of your guidance, because in our impatience to assert our independence, we overlooked your wisdom and understanding. With each passing year we are becoming more conscious and appreciative of our dependence on you. Now that the time has come for us to further pursue our ambitions in places other than our home and school, we pause to offer you this dedication as a token of our sincere appreciation. The years after graduation hold unknown experiences for each of us; but we shall always need your guidance so what we may continue to seek our goals.

The board meets regularly once a month and holds special meetings when necessary. This year a special meeting was called to receive bids on the new elementary school. The six members on the school board are Ralph Nelson, president; Francis Hayes, vice-president; Charles S. Hoyt, treasurer; Arthur Buffington, trustee; George Tanner, trustee,- and Mrs. Marion Richards, clerk. Mr. Kuhlman, chairman, also attends their meetings. The board is set up so as to have a rotating membership; two new members are elected each year. Members can be re-elected to the board after their three year terms on it are completed. It is the policy of the board to spread the membership among the geographical locations of district 17. This year the school board has obtained priorities for steel to build the new elementary school. They sold bonds to pay for the new addition which was completed in conjunction with the elementary school in Morningside. At first few bids were offered, but later, after steel became scarce, many more came in. Plans are now being laid to start work on the new wing for the high school. The school board and faculty have enjoyed several parties and festive occasions where they can discuss their problems and grow in better understanding. On one occasion, a party for the faculty, they dressed in chef's outfits and served supper to the faculty. Being a member of a school board is no easy task. Each member must devote a great deal of time and energy so that he can do his job well. Although members do not receive any salary, they should receive the support and understanding of the taxpayers. To the taxpayers is laid the responsibility of electing a competent school board. The success of their past voting has evidenced itself in a stable school. The success of future elections will be determined by the sincerity of the voters. The importance of a good school board cannot be over emphasized, for a good school system is dependent upon the foundation of a good school board. Pago tonexce (lent a dm in id If a tion Milton H. Kuhlman SUPERINTENDENT DIRECTS ACTIVITIES Superintendent Milton H. Kuhlman is well known to everyone in the community. In the two years he has headed the Edina school system, his fine qualifies and friendly nature have endeared him to all. Mr. Kuhlman also has many educational honors to his name. His degrees begin with B.S. and M.A. degrees and include Phi Delta Kappa in Education, Pi Kappa Delta in speech, a Junior Chamber of Commerce Achievement Award from Stillwater, Minnesota, and being listed in the 1943 edition of "Who's Who in American Education" and "Leaders in American Education" of 1949. He is also a member of Scholia, Lions, American Legion, and the local Civil Defense Council, coauthor of Pupil Assignment and Guide Book, and contributor to proceedings of the Minnesota Academy of Science. He was once secretary-treasurer of the Minnesota Secondary School Principals' Association, and is a post chairman of the State Recreation Committee. Mr. Kuhlman came to Edina from St. Louis Park High where he was principal. Prior to that he had held the same position at Sfillwoter High School.

Now married and the father of two girls, Mr. Mitchell grew up in Syracuse, New York, and earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees at Syracuse University. He has recently done additional work on a Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota.

FICK SECRETARIES KEEP BUSY The central office secretaries act as a boundary line between the administration and the student body. They must contend with dozens of interruptions every day from students and faculty, and act os secretaries to Mr. Kuhlman and Mr. Mitchell. They also have many routine jobs to do in helping to run the school efficiently. Miss Marilyn Jensen serves as Edina's School Counselor. This is her first year at Edina-Morningside High School. From Washburn High School she entered the University of Minnesota where she majored in English and minored in music. After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree, she went to Austin, Minnesota, where she taught English. In 1950, she returned to the University and received her Master of Arts in educational psychology. After receiving this degree, she came to Edina. As school counselor, she heads the senior high school girls' Y-Teen program and junior high school Miss Shirley Stevenson, Mrs. Jean Windahl, and Miss Nancy Allen girls' clubs. She also advises the Student Council Social Committee. This year our vice-principal, Mr. Leo Fick, celebrates his tenth year in the Edina School System. Mr. Fick grew up in Minnesota. He took his undergraduate work at St. Cloud Teachers College. Then he went to the University of Minnesota and worked for his Masters Degree in Education. He first taught at Marietta, Minnesota, for one year. He was principal of the High School at Nicolet. After teaching in Austin for two years he came to the Edina School System. Mr. Fick, his wife and two children live in St. Louis Park. As an outdoors man, Mr. Fick enjoys hunting and fishing. In the summer he and his family go to Lake Koronis, Paynesville, Minnesota, to vacation. We are very grateful to our fine Vice-Principal for the work he has done at Edina. We hope that he will remain in our school system for many years to come. Pag® thirteenMrs. Elisabeth S. Aamodt Manager, Edina School Cafeterias, University of Minnesota B.S.

Led by Roger Whitney, president; Dick Lair, vice president; Barbara Link, secretary; and Jack Anderson, treasurer; the class has tried to make this year a memorable one for all classes. The faculty advisers who have worked with us this year have been: Mr. Rolland Ring, chairman,- Mrs. Janet Schroeder, Mr. Ted Greer, Mr. Del-mar Fredrickson. The seniors will never forget Edina. The wonderful memories of classes and classmates, activities and sports, dances and parties, will always be a port of our high school memories. The senior year of high school has often been called the year of privileges. National Honor So- ciety, Field trips, better auditorium seats, and one ruling set of officers are but a few of the freedoms presented to this class. Graduation day draws to a close the high school days of Edina's class of '52. Now, with the printing of the annual, they can stand back and survey all that has transpired during the past months. It is hoped that in the future this record of a successful school program may recall to loyal Edina alumni the pleasure and satisfaction with which they graduated. It is with happy memories that they turn the traditions to the following classes. The class of '52 wishes them luck in looking ahead to many more successful years at Edina.

Besides presiding over the junior class, he was president of his homeroom. Participating in most school sports, Roger played quarter-back in football, and also played hockey. Small but dynamic, describes vice-president Tom Joas. He was well known around the school for his wrestling abilities. He served on many committees and was co-chairman of the prom. Keeping track of the money was the job of Bill Kelly. He played guard on the A basketball squad and served on the Whigrean staff. Handling the clerical end of the business this year, Marilyn Tell proved to be a competent class secretary. She served on a production committee of the class play and also was an active Red Cross member. Junior Class Officers: Tom Joas, vice-president; Marilyn Tell, secretary; Roger Berglund, president; Bill Kelly, treasurer . r SPRING PROM KEEPS JUNIORS ACTIVE This year the Junior Class, conscious of its growing responsibilities, made an enviable record in the areas of finances, athletics, the arts, and many successful social functions. One of the major functions was the junior-senior prom held on May 23 at the Automobile Club. Always the biggest social event of the year, the '52 prom was certainly an occasion to remember. A social event such as this is expensive, but through the efforts of committees, and advisers, and the cooperation of the student body in general, the class was able to take care of all its finanical commitments. A jam session, held after the first football game of the season, proved to be a success both fun-wise and money-wise. About six-hundred high school students from St. Louis Park and Edina crowded the gymnasium to listen to the music of Don Leary and his band. Eight foreign students came from the University to take part in the program of International Day. The day was a cooperative effort of the junior and senior classes. The day took place in March and Mrs. Janet Schroeder and Mr. Ben Lundquist helped to organize it. Its purpose was to give the students a better understanding of foreign countries. The Junior Class could not have accomplished all it did without the help and guidance of its advisers: Miss Ardyce Lapray, Miss Edith Gransburg, Mr. John Lilja, Mr. Ben Lundquist, and Mr. Dominic Krez.

LILJA'S HOME ROOMudiaSm we Senior SOPHOMORES SHINE IN SCHOOL SPIRIT During the 1951-1952 year the sophomores have had a chance to show just what may be expected of them through their coming school years in the many contributions they have made as a group and as individuals. They were well represented on the football team as Keith Lindgren, Peter Pirsch, Bill Larson, and Tom Fritz received letters for their participation in this sport. The B-squad basketball team is almost entirely sophomores who have demonstrated the spirit and abilities which will mean so much to the high school during their junior and senior years. The sophomores are extremely proud of Bobby Caron, Nancy Bell, and Joanne Johnson who have served as A squad cheerleaders. Sophomores were not only active in the sports, but they displayed excellent school spirit and were always well represented at social functions and as spectators in sport events. They took it upon themselves to get behind the basketball team and give them the support they needed and deserved to win. This proved successful in many ways. Such projects as concessions at basketball games and the selling of candy during the noon hour have helped them to raise funds to sponsor the Senior Reception on Commencement night. The sophomores hope to make this reception a memorable occasion for the seniors. Remember those floats displayed the night of homecoming? The sophomores were awarded second and third places in this contest. A g eat deal of work and effort was put forth by the sophomores toward the "Dublin Drag" which helped to make it such a success. The advisers for the sophomores were: Miss Ursula Costello, Miss Ardice Towler, Mr. John Ehlert, Mr. Wally Klammer, and Mr. Warren Beson.

FROSH GAIN MIDWAY MARK; LOOK TO '53 While freshmen are traditionally known as the youngest class, such is not the case in Edina. The major part of the class is now in its third year at the junior-senior high school and is making its presence very much felt in every phase of school life. Its chief accomplishments are the efficient freshmen-led junior student council, the Junior Red Cross, and its freshman teams. All Krueger, voted "most valuable player" attended the varsity football banquet in November as the freshman representative. Jo we directed Several members of the class are also members of the baseball champions, the Edinamites. In its work and its ploy the freshman class of 1951-1952 has done a job worthy of a class of Edina, and in the years to come will continue to be a credit to the school. The class activities have been sponsored by its advisers: Miss Tess Doering, Miss Verdella Holmgren, Mr. Elmer Halvorsen, Mr. Irv Nelson, Miss Lorna Mattson. our counci H actiuitieJ . . . ROW 1: J.

Homeroom teams were organized and a basketball tournament was held. Ten cents admission was charged with the proceeds given to the March of Dimes. The entire class also planned and attended a Christmas Sunlite held in the auditorium. Two moonlights and a picnic were planned for spring. The individual homerooms have had some activities also. Mrs. Hagemeister's class put on a talent show for the rest of the eighth grade. Mrs. Quarnstrom's home- room sponsored a white elephant sale and made scrapbooks for Michael Dowling School. This class was not only active in social functions and service projects, but also in athletics. Many of the eighth grade boys were members of the midget football team which made a very good record. Murray Mac Pherson was voted by his feamates "Most Valuable Player."

Coach Beson is new this year. He has an enviable record having played from high school on up. He was elected captain of the University of Minnesota team in 1948 and also played a year of professional ball. He graduated from the University of Minnesota. Rollie Ring assisted Mr. Beson by handling the backfield. Mr. Ring also graduated from the University of Minnesota where he played on two national championship teams. FOOTBALL TEAM TIES FOR THIRD PLACE St. Louis Park was the second victim of the Hornets. In the first half neither team scored, but at the start of the second half Edina received and started to march. With Joslin's passing and Perfl's constant gaining, the Hornets drove to the Park two yard line. Chuck Webster smashed over for the only score of the game. The next week the Hornets ventured to Wayzata to lose their first contest of the year. Wayzata exhibited their spirit by downing Edina 34-6. Mert Bell scored the touchdown for Edina, one of the two teams to score on the Trojans. Coaches Beson and Ring ROW 1: O. Iverson, S. Mcknown, J. Ettner, J. Hibbs, R. Howe, C. Huebsch, J. Hedge , C.

Jim Joslin set a record for scoring as he posted 25 of Edina's 26 points. Hornetmen were able to limit Ron Bates and company to Edina's total, 26, for a tie. The Edina squad traveled to Hopkins the next week to suffer their second loss. Joslin again supplied the scoring punch for Edina and made the score 26-13 in favor of Hopkins. The following week was Edina's homecoming game with Robbinsdale, with Lee Pertl scoring twice and Chuck Webster once. The last game proved a victorious one for the Hornets. With Jim Joslin and Lee Pertl leading the way, Edina beat Excelsior 18-6.

Victorious Hornets Homecoming stage is set HORNETS SEE FIRST HOMECOMING VICTORY On a chilly October night the Hornets of Edina had their first real homecoming. Edina's first graduating class came back to witness a glorious day for the Hornets. With the stands filled almost to capacity, Edina kicked off and hundreds of gas-filled balloons filled the air. Lee Perfl quickly scored on a plunge from the three yard line and the conversion point made a 7-0 lead for Edina, in the first quarter. In the second quarter. Chuck Webster eluded defense men and took a 45 yard pass from Pertl to race into the end zone for the Hornets' second touchdown. Halftime score stood 14-0 for the Hornetmen. The Robins rallied in the third quarter to make the score 14-7. In the fourth period the combination of Pertl to Jerry Roberts connected for two long gains, one setting up a touchdown with Pertl going over from the six. Edina scored again in the fourth period, but it was called back for clipping. The final score,- 21-7 in favor of the Hornets. Wes Fesler, Mr. Kuhlmon at halftime This was truly a team victory, for all players worked as one to win the game. On the offense Edina used the power of Dick Mans, John Ettner, John Hibbs, Oliver Iverson, and Tom Fritz. On the defense Brooke Nelson, Bill Larson, Phil Hummel, Roger Howe, and Bruce Katter played outstandingly in the game. At the end of Season the Edina-Morningside Lions Club honored the football players with a dinner at St. Stephens Church. The school also gave a banquet honoring the squad, with Dick Siebert, Minnesota's baseball coach, as master of ceremonies. The principal speaker was Ike Armstrong, Minnesota's capable Athletic Director. Highlighting the banquet was the presentation of letters and other awards to members of the Varsity, B Squad, and Junior Varsity football teams. During the ceremonies a new trophy for the reigning Lake Conference football champion was introduced and presented to Coach Bud Crowningshield of Wayzafa. The trophy was conceived and assembled by Mr. Tennis Kresse, head of the Manual Arts training division. Poge fifty-nineJUNIOR VARSITY Front to Back ROW Is W. Lofsneu. B. Nielsen, C. Allan, O.

All told, too few Lake Conference foes felt the sting of an inexperienced Hornet five in this 51-52 cage season. Waiving non-conference competition, the green and white tackled an experienced Excelsior five as Lake-Conference play got under way. Leading until late in the second quarter the men from Hornetville faltered, and the Blue Jays, hitting on 61% of their shots, eked out a 52-44 win. With one conference game behind them, Edina entertained a tough Wayzata quintet led by junior forward Dick Shover. When the final buzzer had sounded the Trojans had "shaved" the Edina cagers 48-26. To add to its woes, Edina next journeyed to Hopkins to encounter a potent Warrior five. Tschimperle and company took the Hornets' stride as the Warriors, last year's Region Five entry in the state tourney, handed Edina its third straight conference loss. The following week, winless Edina played host to a well balanced Robbinsdale team. Leading until the beginning of the fourth quarter the Hornets again faltered and fell by the wayside as the Robins, by virtue of a 19 point scoring spree in the final stanza, won handily 52-38. Victory tasted sweet os the Hornetmen next proceeded to St. Louis Park where they readily down the Orioles, and notched the win column 48-35. Fresh from its first victory in conference play, Edina entertained an unpredictable Mound squad the following Tuesday. Continuing their fine play, coach Irv Nelson's charges won 52-45. Dick Donlin once more proved a thorn in the Hornets' side os the Nelsonites hit the road to Excelsior. In addition to scoring the winning basket in the closing seconds, Donlin garnered 31 markers, os the Hornets fell once more before a fighting Bluejay quint. With four of its starters riding the bench with five fouls, the blue and white of Excelsior finally overcame an early deficit in the waning moments of the fourth quarter to take the measure of the Hornets, 58-56.

Edina once more fell victim to a fourth quarter scoring spree as forward Dick Shaver tallied twelve points in the closing eight minutes to down the Edina hoopsters 61-47. The Maetzold men from the Raspberry capital made it two in a row over the tottering green and white as the game ended 61-33. Edina again fell before the powerful three-man punch of Tschimperle, Porter, and Wagner as they tallied to show the Warriors the way. The ensuing Friday Edina toured to Robbinsdale and engaged Ed Kernin's Robin aggregation. It has been said the early bird always gets the worm but in this case it seems the early bird lost. The highlight of the season found the victory thirsty Hornets facing a bustling Spirit Lake contingent from the Hawkeye state. Playing flawless ball, they handed the Indians, who hold down third place in their respective conference, a 70-41 shellacking. A seemingly inspired Hornet Five made if two in a row over St. Louis Park as the slogan of the hour was "Win For Dad." The Hornets won it for dad os Jack Johnson scored twenty-five points. Amassing the highest team score in the Lake Conference play this season, the Hornets extended their win streak to three in a row while trouncing Mound 73-41. If was a team victory all the way as the Hornets placed three men in the double figures with center Jack Johnson again leading the woy with a 22 point offering. The Mound game brought regular conference competition to a halt, with the exception of the subdistrict playoffs held at Wayzata, February 29 and March 1. The Trojans trounced Edina once again with a score, to cop a berth in the District 18 Tourney, held at Williams Arena. Guard him, Websterl Let's get on the ball!

MARK UP WINS FOR '52 The "B" squad, under the capable tutelage of mentor Warren Beson, enjoyed a highly successful season as they ended with 10 wins ond 3 losses. Improving with each game, they were able to beat such teams as Woyzata, Park, Mound, and Excelsior, while toting the colors for the green and white. The team was made up almost entirely of Sophomores. The "B" squaders also afforded valuable competition for the varsity throughout the season in their weekly scrimmages. In preparation for post season tournament play, varsity tutor Irv Nelson elected to advance Dean Denis, an able prospect from the "B" squad, to bolster the Hornets' overall depth. Bill Larson and "frosh" center Warren Jepson afforded the scoring for the "Bees" as they garnered a total of 189 points throughout the season. Louie hits for the Bees The Junior Varsity basketball team, under the direction of Mr. Rollond Ring had a better than overage season this year. Their record included wins as opposed to losses. In an exhibition contest Edina took the upper hand in the first game of the season against Park. Leading 22 to 8 at intermission time, Mr. Ring substituted constantly before finally winning 26 to 18. The Junior Varsity won their first conference game against Robbinsdale 19-16. The following week they fell victim to Blake by virtue of a last minute basket, 30 to 28. The team emerged victorious in their next four contests boasting wins over Mound, Wayzata, and Orono. Hopkins was too good for them, and they suffered their only conference defeat 36 to 16.

But undaunted, team members, under the skillful guidance of coach Ted Greer, rallied and went ahead to Fix the boards for the rink and make every possible preparation for their season. With the continuation of warm weather they had regular practice playing soccer. Part of every practice was spent shooting at the goals from a waxed plank. These exercises helped to condition legs and sharpen shooting eyes until they could be put to use in actual play. Returning from last year's team were Bud Nelson, Tom Simpson, Bud Severeid, Jerry Dostal, Eugene Wisald, Bob Lee, Ralph Dorr, Bob Martinson, Kenneth Ahrens, and David Sommers. This season Mr. Greer had two defensive lines and three front lines. The front lines consisted of Roger Berglund, Tom Hughes, Bob Lee, Dave Sommers, Berke Rogers, Tom Sison, Ralph Darr, Ken Ahrens, and Eugene Morris; with Bud Nelson, Gene Siwald, Bob Martinson, and Jim Dorns, in the defensive positions. Captain-elect, Bud Nelson, has played a defensive position for three years at Edina and Gene Siwald paired os his partner.

WRESTLING SQUAD GAINS EXPERIENCE I he 1951-52 wrestling squad has felt the loss of two fine coaches Conrad Emerson and John Motion who left Edina last year, and the gain of a new and well-experienced coach, Elmer Halvorsen. Under this skillful tuteloge, the squad has made many advances thus far in their second season as a member of the Lake Conference. Individually some of the boys have been doing very well by winning their matches and gaining a few team points. For example, Jerry Howard and co-captain Don Leary led the squad with 12 points apiece. Jim Hedges, and cocaptain Tom Joas followed close behind with 7 and 6 points respectively. Ken Krekow, another hard working grappler, has netted himself five well-earned points. Others such as Doug Walker, Gary Williams, Bob LeBeau, and Burke Rodgers have made steady improvements so far, and have added much to the building of a great team spirit. Here is a brief summary of the action involved during the first five meets of the season. Hastings—here: Hastings won, 43 to seven, but Don Leary pinned his man and Jim Hedges won a decision to prevent a complete shutout. Wayzata—there: The Wayzata team completely overpowered Edina to a 49-0 victory. During this match, however, all of the boys showed great signs of improvement, not evidenced by the final score.

Last year under the able guidance of Coach Irv Nelson, the team enjoyed a most successful season with a traveling squad of over 20 boys, and a total participation of more than double the 1950 season. Scoring was paced last year by the undefeated mile relay team consisting of Dave Ryerse, Tom Young, Doug Sarff, and Ben Platter. Other points were contributed by Dave Ryerse in the 440, 220, and 100 yard dashes, Jim Joslin in the shotput, and Tom Young in the discus throw. Each scorer received a letter. Edina's first test was a five-school meet with St. Louis Park, Excelsior, Wayzafa, and Mound on the letter's track. After the completion of only a few events the meet was halted because of rain. The team traveled to Carleton on Saturday, May 5, to participate in the annual high school meet. Nine points were contributed by Dave Ryerse in the 440 and 220 yard dashes. Jim Joslin gained another point for the team in the shotput. Coach Nelson took his proteges to the annual Lake Conference Meet, the Mound relays, on May 9. Edina entered one or more teams or individuals in almost every event, with 34 boys participating. The mile relay team, with a time of 3:46.6, won, breaking the old record of 3:48 set by University High. A freshman 440 relay teom, consisting of Bill Larson, Dave North, Tom Fritz, and Dick Hawkins, took second place in its event, showing great promise for the future. The team placed fifth in a field of 13. On Moy 12 Edina participated in the events at the St. Thomas Relays. Again our mile relay teom won, shaving almost a second from the old record. Jump, Trucker!

Jack Sadler, a junior, was the only letterman to return to the links for Edina. The practically new team began its '52 season with yet another new factor. With the departure of former coach Conrad Emerson, David Carlson, moth teacher, will take over the coaching duties for the Hornet Linksmen. Edina's 1951 season had a victorious beginning. The Hornets proved tough opponents as the season opened. The First victory came as Edina trounced Mound, nine and one-half to two and one-half, on the home links of Meadowbrook, on May 1. On May 3, Edina met and conquered Minnehaha Academy, twelve to zero, at the Hiawatha Golf Course. Wayzata was the next victim of the Hornetmen, defeated twelve to zero at Meadow-brook. The third shutout in a row came at the Minnesota Valley course, as the Edina team defeated Bloomington, twelve to zero, May 10. It was a near shutout, as Edina was again the victor over its opponents of May 11. The victim, for the second time was Minnehaha Academy, on the Meadowbrook course, by a score of eleven and one-half to one-half. Star Golfer, Jack Saddler GOLF SQUAD HAS SUCCESSFUL SEASON May 15 seemed to be the beginning of the end. On that date Edina met Southwest on a neutral course and was defeated by a score of nine to three. St. Louis Park, the next victor narrowly squeaked by Edina Five and one-half to six and one-half, on May 17, at Meadowbrook. The last game of the season also brought a defeat to the Hornets as Robbinsdale rolled over Edina eleven and one-half to three and one-half. The District Tournament at Meadowbrook was held on May 23. Edina Finished in second place with a score of 350. Team scoring was: Bill McArthur, Bob Hale, and John Prentice, 87; Manny Huesebo, 89. The standings for tournament wound up as follows-. First, place, Robbinsdale, 342; second, Edina, 350; third, Hopkins, 353; fourth. Mound, 365; Fifth, St. Louis Park, 370; sixth, Bloomington, 400.

These are the boys who don't make the varsity squads and who are still interested in a particular sport. Also, there are the boys who didn't try out for the varsity but would just as soon play intramural sports. Intramural games begin at 3:45 p.m. on school days. They are frequently held Saturday mornings. The personnel responsible for this activity is Mr. Dorn Krez, the high school athletic director. This program furnishes the boys with recreation after school, and at the same time teaches them to get along with each other and practice good sportsmanship. There were about 250 beys out for this activity throughout the course of the year. The boys sign up for the program at the beginning of the season in which that particular sport is being played. And then they divide into squads. A schedule is made Jump ball! up anc] the squads play each other according to schedule. Later in the season they have play-offs to determine the champion. The intramural football squads played their games on the practice field, and the basketball intramural teams held their games at the high school on Saturday mornings. Inframurals in the high school is growing rapidly. The director helps them with the following spring sports: soft ball, golf, tennis and possibly archery. Athletic director, Krez Oops!

SENIOR COUNCIL PROMOTES VARIED PROGRAM Homecoming plans and problems started the 1951 Senior High Council program off with a bang. Jerry Sundt, Student Council president, appointed Jim Pul-ver and Susan Hill as co-chairman in charge of the festivities, with the various committee chairmen being chosen from both Council and student body. Events included auditorium skits by students and faculty, coronation of the queen, and a parade of floats, climaxed by the game and dance afterwards. After the homecoming festival was over the Council set up permanent committees. Janet Diebold, as secretary of the Council, was chairman of the clericol committee. Bud Nelson, vice-president, headed the ethics committee; Bill Cooley as acting treasurer, headed finance. The other committee chairmen were Jack Johnson, lunchroom; Pat Weed, auditorium,-Martha Wilder, social; Susan Hill, teacher-student; Frances Furber, publicity; Jerry Roberts, and Betsy Conrad, hall and building. Bud Nelson, vice-president, attended the National Student Council Convention in Boston, Massachusetts. Council projects included the strengthening of the Council constitution, a vigorous campaign against vandalism and the prevention of cheating in classes. They supported the tuberculosis drive for Christmas seals by adding a generous contribution from the Council treasury. Another major project was the planning of the first annual Winter Carnival Day. Co-chairman for the day were Frances Furber and Bud Nelson with other committee chairmen appointed by Jerry Sundt. Janet Diebold, Secretary; Jerry Sundt, President?

COUNCIL SOLVES JUNIOR HIGH PROBLEMS The Junior High Student Council had a very successful year under the leadership of Dick Seaman, president; and Leo Pick, adviser. The other officers are: vice-president, Judy Hansord; treasurer, Sandra Irizarry,- secretary, Ronald Berglund. The junior and senior high councils were joint sponsors of the magazine drive. Students who sold magazines were given points, in proportion to their sales, which were worth prizes at the end of the drive. There was a daily drawing for prize money providing the student had sold fen dollars worth of subscriptions at the time of the drawing. The council started a new campaign for keeping the halls clear of paper, lunches, and candy wrappers, and formed an ethics committee to reprimand the students who disobeyed this rule. Another project of these student representatives was a drive against vandalism. A new procedure for dealing with tardiness was invented by the council. All tardy students were marked on the absentee slips which were recorded in the office. The homerooms competed to see who could go the longest without a tardiness. A list of those tardy was given to the homeroom representative who kept a record of the days. At the end of the year the room with the best record was owarded a prize. ROW 1: Steve Lundgren.

MONTHLY DEADLINES TO BE FULFILLED KEEP "BUZZETTE" STAFF ON ITS TOES Student interest in the "Buzzette" was high this year, and volunteers plentiful. Ultimately there were seniors, juniors and sophomores working on the regular staff, with Bob Von Eschen as editor and Jane Scoggin os assistant editor. Mrs. Rauha Hagemeister was their adviser. The BUZZETTE, published monthly, is subsidized by the school board. The advertising sold each fall pays for the cost of pictures and extra pages during the year. This year many more pictures have been available than before because of the new Fairchild process purchased by the printer which cuts the cost of engraving to a fraction of its former total. Highlight of the year for the "Buzzette" staff was the MHSPA convention in Duluth, October fifth and sixth. The eight BUZZETTE representatives were accompanied by Mrs. Rauha Hagemeister. In Duluth at the convention, the BUZZETTE received the following awards: Barbara Link won second place in state competition in interview writing; page one received honorable mention in Twin City makeup competition; page two and the sports page each placed third in the competition for their respective fields. The staff also attended a clinic held at the Nicollet Hotel in Minneapolis sponsored by the Minneapolis Star and Tribune at which they were briefed on essential journalistic practices. At Christmas time this year the BUZZETTE sponsored a junior high school page, dedicated solely to grades seven through nine. The staff was composed of volunteers from the seventh and eighth grades and was advised by Jane Scoggin. The BUZZETTE won First Class Honor Award from the National Scholastic Press Association for the school year of 1950-51. BUZZETTE editors end adviser prepore for a coming deodllne.

FURIOUS ACTIVITY PRODUCES ANNUAL Summer vacation of '51 was the beginning of the 1952 Whigrean. By the time school started in the fall, the staff had a good start with the theme chosen, most of the layout completed, and the entire staff organized to begin the year's work. Many cold winter nights os the staff labored late hours, they were thankful for the early work accomplished. Because of whole-hearted co-operation by most of the staff, these late nights were kept down to a minimum, except before engraving and printing deadlines. Biggest obstacle to production and headache for the editors and adviser was the matter of Finance to cover the costs of printing, engraving, and covers. A busy advertising staff labored long hours persuading businessmen of the merits of an ad in the Whigrean. Profits from subscriptions and noon-hour candy sales, money from the council, supplemented by a small amount from book cover sales, made up most of the remaining deficit. All this work was not without its brighter moments, however. The best of this was the State High School Press Convention in Duluth held late in the fall of 1951. The nine Whigrean representatives returned primed with the finer points of journalism and many tales of events in rainy Duluth. Co-oditors ..........................

RED CROSS COUNCIL WIDENS SCOPE As a service organization, the Junior Red Cross plans various projects, on local, national, and international levels, to carry out the work for needy people. The projects, this year, have been planned to include all the departments in the school. From the senior high homerooms, fruit and stationery were sent to the Hennepin County Home. Menus and tray mats were made, as a project, by the print shop. Pocket books were collected for the veterans. Waste paper bags were made, by the eighth grade, for Glen Lake Sanatorium. Publicizing the blood donor program, in our school, and playing host to twenty-four students from Wyandotte, Michigan, were part of the national Junior Red Cross program. International activities were based on sending the annual Christmas Gift Boxes overseas. An album sent to France by the French Class included pictures and stories of the school. In return, an album was received this year by the students. The Junior Red Cross members of the eleventh grade Filled an educational chest for a school overseas. Edina Junior Red Cross members received a box of beautiful gifts from students in the Japanese school which had received our First educational chest. The successful completion of the year's projects was accomplished under the direction of Miss Ardis Towler. The Junior High Red Cross Council headed by Larry Pearson and advised by Miss Tess Doering have token on many projects. Darlene Norris gave a talk on enrollment at a city-wide meeting. Larry Pearson spoke about our school's Red Cross Christmas projects. Toys, place mats and nut cups for underprivileged children were made. The seventh grade art class made braille book covers from felt. 152 pocket books and 295 comic books were collected for the induction center.

PROM AND COMMENCEMENT TOP OFF 1951 New to the young Edina High School in 1951 wos the tradition of a Junior-Senior Prom. This memorable occasion, held May 25 at the Automobile Club, will long be remembered by all who attended the "Garden of Dreams." Complete with photographer and music by Percy Hughes, this dance was indeed the highlight of the season. Edina saw another innovation as it watched the long line of capped and gowned seniors mount the stage to receive diplomas. This was the first class to graduate from the new high school. The newly-made alumni were entertained immediately afterwards by a sophomore-sponsored reception in the community room. Even the seniors' parents contributed to the memorable occasion by giving a party in the gym for all seniors and their dates after the reception.

'20's IS THEME FOR JR. CLASS PLAY A teen-age triangle and the problems it caused in the Palmer home was the plot of the Junior Class play, "Turn Back the Clock," given November 15 and 16. The 'Roaring Twenties' was the period and the triangle included Evie Palmer, done by Artise Egulf and Marcie Stowe; a motorcycle demon named Charlie Hill, played by Alan McArthur; and a saxophone player named Johnnie Stone, acted by Carle-ton Holstrom. The long-suffering Palmer parents were played by Judy Vielleux and Garry Butterfield. The evening performance of "Turn Back the Clock" climaxed a five week period of hard work by the entire class. The first committee to show proof of its work was publicity. Headed by Julie Read, it soon had announcements of the production everywhere. With the decision to do the play, came the need for double windows, an archway, and a stairway. Under the direction of Ross Lubrant, these were constructed. Possibly one of the biggest problems encountered in presenting the play was the search for costumes. The long waisted gowns and baggy trousers typical of the era were dug out of attics and cellars of class members and their friends. Vera Darr, wardrobe mistress, managed to return everything down to the last bow tie. Putting on the eyebrow pencil and rouge was directed by Joanne Seidl, after instruction from Miss Costello. The details in properties were handled by Pat Fedders and Carol Friegong. The entire play was under the direction of Mr. Delmar Fredrickson. CAST-Back Row: G. Butterfield, J. Veilloux, M. Jassoy, B.

Bev Tanner Neal Perlich May Lou Houck Mary Osborn Bob Loughlin Janet Beggs Clint Odell Dwight Peterson SENIOR CLASS PLAY Edina's first Senior Class Play, "Kind Lady" a serious drama by Edward Chodorov, was presented on April 13, 1951. The play tells the story of Mary Herries, a lonely spinster, plagued by the results of her acts of kindness toward Henry Abbott, a diabolic swindler, posing as an artist who is in need. After moving into her home with his family and friends, he tries to drive Mary out of her mind and force her to sign over her property to him. Upon several occasions Miss Herries attempts to notify the people who visit her of the things that are happening, but if takes several years and several attempts before she is able to convince a visitor, Mr. Foster, her banker, to bring the police to the scene. The major portion of the play is a flashback and ends with Mary Herries arising to answer the knocking at the door while Abbott and his cohorts stand spellbound. The stage was furnished with antique furniture, suitable to an English town house of rather conservative taste. Muriel Kafter served as student director, Dave Boulay and Art Bailey were co-stage managers, and Donna Olson was make-up director. Mr. Delmar Fredrickson was the faculty director.

Y-TEENS UNDERTAKE VARIOUS PROJECTS This year the Y-Teen clubs have been busy.Each small club had a representative on the all-school cabinet. They made suggestions for all-school activities. The two adult advisers for this cabinet were Miss Marilyn Jensen, Edina girls' adviser and Mrs. Kathleen Rappley, teenage adviser from the Y.W.C.A. In the fall there was a membership campaign. A program featuring a style show depicting the fashions from when Y-Teens began to the present time ended it. The Recognition Service during which the girls received membership cards and the officers and advisers were introduced is a requirement for becoming a Y-Teen. An annual affair at which the girls served was the football banquet. They also did service projects and planned many social activities for the entire senior high school. DER SEE ROW 1: M.

The money raised was used to buy terry cloth and cotton to make stuffed animals for the children's ward in a hospital. Working on these animals kept the girls busy for many meetings. A fathers' and daughters' banquet was planned for a spring social event. The Tri Sigma and Der See girls and their fathers were also invited. TRI SIGMA ROW 1: R. Gilbertson. Treasurer B.

Other annua levents that members participated in. were a slumber party and a pledge dinner party for new members. This is the lost year for the Charter members of Tri-Sigma. They will hand over the Tri-Sigma name, traditions, and treasury to a group of girls who will be entering ninth grade in the fall. Pago ninety-oneK.O.'s started the year off enthusiastically by sponsoring an all school Y-Teen Tea at Jean Murray's. One of their service projects for the year was making paper carnival hats for the Children's New Years Eve Party at University Hospital.

The goals of Alpha Zefa are to promote friendship among the fellow students and to carry out the policies of the school. One of the first projects was to send candy, consisting of Hershey Bars, to the Philippine Islands. A D.P. family of seven was made more happy at Christmas time through the efforts of the club. The enthusiastic and co-operative spirit of the members was responsible for making Club Alpha Zeta a success. The "Les Femmes Du Monde" had an active year with club activities. They started out the school year with a bowling party. During the year two slumber parties were held. During the Christmas Season the girls went caroling at an Old Peoples' Home. They also sold Christmas cards and wrappings in the halls at school to make money. Planned programs, such as tips on dating, made their meetings more interesting. LES FEMMES DU MONDES ROW 1: M.

HI-Y TAKES SOCIAL, SERVICE PROJECTS A wide and varied program was carried out by the boys in Hi-Y clubs this year. They started out by supplying twelve of their members as speakers in the Community Chest "boy speakers" program. This project was very successful and valuable both to boys and to those who heard them. A new policy as far as any events carried on by the Hi-Y was instituted this year. A calendar listing all Hi-Y events, was posted on the club bulletin board in the main hall. From this calendar all Hi-Y members could learn the time, place, and location of any meeting or party put on by the Hi-Y. One of the biggest events to take place this year was the Hi-Y induction ceremony held at Coffman Memorial Union on the University campus. Over fifty Edina boys took part in this induction. The ceremony will be a lasting inspiration to the boys involved in it. One of the projects carried on inside the school was the selling of pencils with the basketball schedule printed on it. Another of our service projects was selling Christmas tree tickets and working in Christmas tree lots for the "Y's" men club in Minneapolis. The Edina clubs participated in three state Hi-Y events this year. They had delegates—to the Hi-Y officers training camp, delegates to the District Hi-Y convention held at Mankato, and 12 boys were sent to the "Youth in Government" program held at the capitol. Two social events sponsored by Hi-Y clubs this year were definitely among the top social events of the year. A sleigh ride held at Eaton's ranch was put on by one of the chapters and was a huge success. The Christmas Dance, called the "Snowflake Swirl" this year, was also a very fine dance. The annual Hi-Y banquet was held at the end of the year. This year, for the second time, twelve Edina boys took part in the Hi-Y Model Legislature program carried out throughout the state. The boys presented a bill to the senate, took part in committee meetings, and went through all of the other legislative processes. All those who took part received a great thrill and profited greatly from the experience. This summer our president spent a week in Cleveland, Ohio at the International Hi-Y convention. At this meeting he represented the North-Central Area Hi-Y at the meeting of the National Council of Hi-Y. During the winter the all-school Hi-Y held a intro club basketball tournament. Each Club played at least twice and the champion competed in the all city Hi-Y basketball tournament held in the gym at Southwest high school. The thing uppermost in Hi-Y is to try to live up to the Hi-Y purpose; which reads, "to create, maintain, and extend, throughout the home school, and community, high standards of Christian character."

A Christmas dinner basket for a needy family was financed by working in the Y's Mens' Christmas tree lots. Tree tickets were sold with the profits going to the all school treasury. Auctor members worked on decorations for the Hi-Y Christmas formal. A chairman in charge of Aid For Other Boys was appointed. The chapter was represented by its officers at a city-wide leadership conference at the University of Minnesota. One of the leading Hi-Y chapters of the school, 7ri-Alpha Chapter, has continued to grow and expand its activities. The members sold "Y's" Mens Christmas tree tickets and worked in the free lots as "tree jacks." They also participated in F. O. B., Community Chest and developed checkroom facilities. A splash party at the Y.M.C.A. took the place of a regular meeting. The chapter sent its officers to All-City Hi-Y banquets to obtain information to aid the growing chapter. AUCTOR ROW Is B. Nelson.

This number soon increased to nineteen. A hayride was the club's first project. The Rohns sold Christmas tree tickets and worked in the YMCA Christmas tree lots during the holidays. Publicity was their job for the Hi-Y sponsored Christmas dance. The Rohns helped put across the February vandalism campaign sponsored by the student council. Regis Hi-Y consists of nineteen members under the supervision of Mr. Rolland Ring. This club has tried to extend Christian Influence over the school, home, and community. They sponsored the "idea" of selling pencils, with the year's basketball schedule on them. Regis took care of the refreshments at the Annual Christmas Dance. Die Gratia participated in all of the usual Hi-Y activities. One of the more interesting programs was a European trip guided by a speaker from a youth Hostal Group. He showed slides and followed along with an informative dialogue. Die Gratia handled ticket sales for the Christmas Hi-Y dance and participated as "Jacks" at the Y's Men Christmas Tree lots.

In the following months it played at the pep fests, all home basketball and football games, and with the Junior Band and choir performed at the Christmos program. At the spring concert Mr. Gerald Prescott, director of the University Concert Band, was guest conductor. They rounded out the year's activities by playing at Commencement, May 28th. SENIOR BAND Small performers with big spirit are the blue and white clod figures of the Junior Bond. Each foil Russell Whalen, Junior Band director, takes new students from different schools, teaches each the art of his instrument, and soon has a well-molded, harmonious bond. Such was the case with the Junior Band of 1951-52. After its initial performance at Christmas time, it worked for polish for the Lake Conference Contest March 18 at the Edina High School, and the concert in the spring. JUNIOR BAND Page ninety-tightfL voices, robes help to better cboir. CHOIRS EXCEL Lyle Gilbert, choir director This group, under the direction of Mr. Lyle M. Gilbert represents the "top" vocal talent in Edina-Morningside high school. Its activities this year have been varied and its musical ideals are high. Highlights of the year's work are exemplified in such programs as the one given early in November to the entire student body as a "kick-off" to the magazine selling campaign. The choir received first call on the first one thousand dollars benefit from this drive with which to purchase the beautiful new robes it now has. The Christmas program, given twice, was one of the most beautiful our school has produced. In March this organization participated in the annual Lake Conference Music Festival held this year at Wayzata. Membership in the Junior Choir is open to eighth and ninth grade students in our school. Besides appearing in the Christmas program in two a cappello numbers, the Junior Choir appeared most successfully in the first Annual Spring Vocal Music Concert April 24.

This year the girls were under the leadership of Barbara Bris-bois, their president, and the guidance of Miss Sue Kaldahl. Their meetings were held every other week. One of the highlights for the Pep Club this year was the performance of a skit for an all school pep meeting. Working hard to promote good cheering, the pep club and cheerleaders have done a great deal towards bettering cheers and arousing enthusiasm. PEP CLUB B SQUAD CHEERLEADERS ROW Is S. Lofsnoss, P.

The purpose of Edina's French Club; Le Circle de Francois, is to have fun with a French theme. The Beaux Arts Ball topped off an exciting year. The fabulous decorations and unusual costumes lent an exotic atmosphere, and a wonderful time was had by all. Everyone came masked, confusing their friends as well as their dates. Old Roman customs and the ancient languages of the world are explored and relived by members of the Latin club. Programs during the monthly meetings included tape recordings, speakers, and movies. A highlight of the year was seeing the fabulous sagas of ancient Rome, "Quo Vadis," as a field trip for 100 students on March 10. Members attired in colorful tunics, togas, and stolas, were served Roman food, in the appropriate style, by faithful slaves on April 23. Club members provided entertainment between courses with a Latin play, a magician show, musical numbers, and ancient Roman style show. The occasion was the third annual Roman Banquet. Officers for '51-'52 were: President, Dick Wilson; Vice President, Jim Joslin,- Secretary-Treasurer, Phil Hummel; adviser. Miss Verdella Holmgren.

Mrs. Elisabeth Aamodt is the manager and it is through her and her assistance that we are served a well-balanced meal every noon. A count of students is taken each day so that they can estimate how many they will be serving during the noon hour. Many times they have experienced a miscount but being placed in such capable hands they are able to cope with it and all turns out well in the end. The cooks too, are but another group who are willing to give up much of their own time for school activities. This was proven by the tremendous job done recently on the football banquet and leadership conference.

Edina is very fortunate to have a group of very competent janitors. It is through their tireless efforts that the school is kept as a place to look at with pride. Their day is a very full one, which consists of arriving early in the morning and leaving late at night. Their willingness to come many cold nights to open the school for some activity will never be forgotten. One will always find the janitors cleaning up the rooms after school making them neat for the next day. Any of us would think this a complete schedule, but added to this schedule some janitors also run bus trips. Edina students who come on buses or stay to work on activities are always greeted with friendliness by the janitorial staff. It is through their cooperation that the schools equipment can be used for the decorating of many events and activities. ROW 1: Jim Lyman, Clifford Robinson, Mab«l Lightfoot.

When the group for debate turned out they thought that eight hours a week sounded like a lot of time. They soon discovered that this is the minimum of time they could spend and still get research done. The resolution for 1951-52 was: "Resolved: That all American citizens should be subject to conscription for essential services in time of war." The squad debated with Roosevelt, St. Louis Pork, Blake, and Bloomington in dual meets. The South St. Paul invitational provided competition with schools from Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota. The regional tournament at Marshall High ended Edina's first yeor in debate competition. Mr. Del-mar Fredrickson was Debate Coach. Carol Jost Practices Debate for Debate Team and Adviser COMPETITION IS KEEN IN DECLAM DECLAMATION The students who participated in declam this year had keen competition. For many of those who participated this was their first year, though others had a year or more of experience behind them.
