To the members of the Pilot staff, Senior Day is the climax
of a year of hard but en oyahle work. Beginning with the plan-
ning of each page early in the fall, every staff member has
worked long and diligently to meet all the deadlines. The fun
of picture taking day, the trips to the printer and engraver, and
the many happy hours in Room 312 will always be associated
with pleasant things in our memories. The staff wishes to thank
all those who helped to make the 1946 Pilot a success.
Here we areXsome nine hundred of us living, playing, and
working together in the changing world of today, and dreaming
of the better world of tomorrow. Democracy in the malcing is
best exemplined in the thousands of public schools in America.
At Murray, as in other schools, we, the future citizens of this
country and the World, learn the process of democracy through
the activities, worlc, and fellowship that we share.
The pep with which we yell "Fight, team, fightv at football,
hoclcey, and baslcetball games, the enjoyment we get from a
colce at the corner drugstore, the neighborhood gab-fests and
dances, and the responsibilities we gain through our participa-
tion in clubs are all a part of the school life that we have enjoyed.
To record the everyday life which is so familiar at Murrayx
the thrill of the class play, homecoming, and the prom, the
cramming for tests, the anticipation of coming assemblies, the
between class get-togethers in the hall, and the academic side
that prepares us for the futurexwe, the stahl' of the I 946 ann ual
proudly present this bool: OUR SCHOCL.

Through the park or up the block from the street-
car scores of students can he seen each morning on
their way to school. Carrying books in their arrns, some
laugh, some chatter about the latest gossip, and the
more studious talk over the coming clay's work. These
boys and girls are the ones who give Murray the friend-
liness for which it is known.

Promising young carpenters not only learn how to
make essential furniture but also are well informed
concerning the varieties of woods. Hank Jensen,

One place in the school that is familiar to everyone
is the library. Seniors and freshmen alike come here
for reference material or books of all kinds to read.
Here a typical group of students is busy preparing
work for the next day.
If practice makes perfect, this trio of eighth

During the past year, Mrs. Ruth Eddy's
eleventh grade American history classes have
studied the Utopias of yesterday, today, and
tomorrow. They have made notebooks, posters,
and other projects. A small portion of their
work is shown here.
Utopias, those fantastic ideal dream
worlds of the past, were written but
were never brought into reality. To
establish them would have meant
"death to the old way of life and re-
birth to the new." Future nations have
accepted many of those visionary ideas.
America, the nearest approach to a
realized, Utopia, was the Promised
Land to millions of people who sought
freedom, justice, equality, and oppor-
tunity. They, too, have added their
gifts to building a better Utopia.
We stand on the threshhold of a new
era, the Atomic-Air-Age. Each gen-
eration must be taught to be the lead-
ers and promoters of the New World
Order. Utopia is the principle of all
progress,--the way to a better world.

As graduation approaches the class of I946 looks back on its
school life at Murray with pleasant recollections.
There were our first days at Murray with the usual bewildered
looks and the sinking feeling of newcomers to a high school. How-
ever, we made friends and got into the swing of Murray life
We became an organized class in our Junior year, and, with
the help of John Fowler as our class president, and Mr. Bernard
Quinn, our adviser, we sponsored a theater party, and we presented
an entertaining Variety Show.
The highlight of the year came the evening of May twenty-
sixth, 1945, when the annual Junior-Senior Prom was held at the
St. Paul Athletic Club. Southern atmosphere was created to carry
out the Plantation Promenade theme with a white picket fence
around the dance floor, a tree decorated with gayly-colored crepe
paper bows, and fresh lilacs adorning the wall-lights. As a momento of the wonderful evening, each girl
received a cotton boll.
With Charles Arnason as our Senior Class prexy, we strode eagerly into our final year at Murray.
In addition to several parties and dances, we gave our class play, "Growing Pains", with Clarene Perkins
and Beverly Roland and Steve Archer and Charles Arnason as the teen-age sister and brother in the
Our high school days are almost behind us now, and we find it hard to believe. Murray has been our
world for so long. And now we all must go our separate ways. But we shall never forget the friends we
made or the fun we have all shared at Murray.

With Robert Brace as our able class president, we began our flfrst year as an organized class.
Plans soon were under way for a prosperous and eventful 1945-'46,
The doors of the Midtown Theater opened wide for the annual theater party held October
second and third. The manager of the Midtown, as well as the committee chairmen considered
the event successful in all respects. '
It seemed an eternity from November twenty-seventh, the day we ordered our class rings and
pins until January seventeenth, when they were finally in our possession. That day remarks such
as these were often heard, "How do you like your pin?v or "Let me try on your ringf'
A Winter Carnival was added this year. Nancy Sorenson, queen, and Joseph Horvath, king,
were chosen to reign over the activities of the day. The program included skating, skiing and to-
bogganing in the afternoon, and the coronation followed by supper and dancing in the evening.
"In the spring a young man's fancies turn to---" but a girl's fancies turn to thoughts of
the all important social event of the year, the Junior-Senior Prom. After much deliberation the
committees decided on the Commodore Hotel and set the date for May twenty-fourth. This
year's theme is 1'Fiesta".
We attribute our success to the untiring efforts of the board, special committees, and particu-
larly Miss Eleanor Steelsmith, our class adviser, without whom these projects would have been
Amidst the gaieties of the happy hours there lingers the shadow of sorrow brought by the
deaths of three of our class members. We pay tribute to those who have become a part of that

One of the Student Council's
big projects of the year is selling
Christmas seals, a campaign con-
ducted to raise funds for the
fight against tuberculosis. Ann
Curley and William Beard, seat-

Zwiener and Judith Stopf,
Meet In Common Interests
One organization that includes all of the citi-
zens of this, Our School, is the Student Council.
The Senior High executive board comprises six
seniors of whom four are officers, four juniors
and four sophomores. Representatives from
home rooms and alternates make up the stu-
dent participation group.
Work of the Student Council is varied and
important. During this year the organization
handled all school drives. These included the
Forget-me-not sales for the Disabled Veter-
ans. Included in this year's collection campaign
was a fee of twenty-five cents from each student
to help pay for sponsoring assemblies.
Another active project is that of the second-
hand book store handled by the Student Coun-
cil executive board. A Supply Store, also spon-
sored by the Council helps students to get
needed supplies quickly.
Special committees from the board are chos-
en to carry on various types of work. These

for bulletin boards, and planning assemblies. Temporary committees assist in seating and
charting the lunch room, and in decorating the school's Christmas tree. A calendar of ac-
tivities is planned for each semester.

of the Northwest Federation of Student Councils at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. Delegates
from Murray were Ann Curley, Donn Christensen, Sue Methven, Bill Beard, and Mrs. Eddy.
Because of the war, this was the first convention in three years,
A series of round-table discussions on general topics pertaining to Student Councils were
held. Officers were elected at a business meeting. A special meeting was held for Student
Council advisers. A tour of historic Prairie du Chien, the second oldest city in Wisconsin,

The Girls Take Over
Such teen age problems as what to wear and whom to
date are aired at monthly meetings of the Girls' League,
an association of all Murray girls from the ninth to the
twelfth grades. Varied and interesting programs, as well
as some traditional and some unusual extra activities,
formed another memorable year in its history,
Style shows were the feature of two meetings. Our
own girls modeled at both, at the first wearing selections
from their personal wardrobes. The second was sponsored
by Field-Schlick, Inc.
Featured at another program was a forum on problems
confronting the average high school girl. A board consisting of a freshman, a sophomore,
a junior, and a senior girl discussed, among other things, going steady and accepting dates
at the last minute.
In February, Girls, League became eight years old. The occasion was celebrated with
birthday cake, following a tradition started on the first anniversary. Members of the expres-
sion classes presented a play entitled, uBilly's First Date".
Wide-awake faces in contrast to the usual just arisen looks were evident about the halls
the morning of October eleventh. On that date G. L. sponsored a sunrise dance, and many
a student Lindy-ed on the gym floor prior to 8:39 A.M. Doughnuts and milk were served for
breakfast. Another money-making project was a caramel apple sale. Audrey Snyder, vice
president, was in charge of both events.
The annual College Club tea for senior girls and a party for the same group and their
mothers rounded out the year.
Miss Catherine Daly is adviser of this important organization.
Happy Birthday! As an annual event the Girls' League holds a birthday party meeting at which
each member of the organization receives a piece of the birthday cake. This year the league cele-
brated its eighth year as an organized group. The smiling countenances of the league officers prove that
such an event is a pleasure. Pictured left to right are: Mary Persons, treasurer, Audrey Snyder,

I-Iarmonious, energetic, talented-this is the Murray High School Choir. During the eight years
of its existence, it has become one of the school organizations of which Murray is most proud.
Now nearing the completion of its first year with Mrs. Ruth Wannamaker as its new director,
the choir has again had a full season.
The seventy-five choristers were first heard at a Memorial Assembly October eighth, when they
presented a group of sacred songs in honor of former Murrayites who lost their lives in World
War II. Cooperating in this program were four members of the expression classes who gave a
reading entitled "Taps Is Not Enough."
Christmas was, as usual, a busy season. December twelfth the choir sang carols for the Minnesota
Garden and Flower Society in the Emporium Community Room. The following Sunday after-
noon, December seventeeth, members joined with three thousand other choristers from various
school and church musical groups in participation in the annual Municipal Christmas Choral
Pageant in the St. Paul Auditorium. On December nineteenth, the choir again collaborated with
the expression department to give the yearly Yuletide program for students and parents. Betty
Jane Gammel and Lois Salmon were soloists in the latter, and many others participated in small
Songs from different nations were broadcast January twenty-ninth on 'QSalute to the Schools",
a program sponsored by Schuneman's Inc. and given weekly by high school students.
The highlight of the year was the choir7s presentation of The Marriage of Nannette a romance-
ridden, comic operetta. Through many quarrels and flirtations came several sets of principles, but
in the end love found a way, and everyone but the self-centered duke was happy. Lois Salmon
and Geraine Stopf took the title role of Nannette, while Bob Williams and Bob Cook alternated as
the duke. Carole Farney and Betty Jane Gammel played the part of Yvonne, a countess masquer-
ading as a gypsy girl. Three performances were given. Another event of the spring in which the
choir participated was the Victory Music Rally again in the downdown auditorium.
Graduation activities are now taking the limelight. The choir appeared on the program of the
P.T.A.,s Senior Night recently. Commencement exercises June fifteenth in the Auditorium theater
section will be the scene of its final performance of the year.

4,--N for people to enjoy leisure reading or to do reference work. Toward this goal
of service to the school, Miss Marion Gratz, librarian, advises the activities
of the Library Club, Murray's oldest organization.
This year was no exception to the rule that business and pleasure may be combined to make a
harmonious atmosphere. Early last fall the club initiated new members and enjoyed a pleasant social
evening. Then came plans for one of the important events of the year-Book Week, "The World
of Books" made an excellent theme for the assembly and the exhibit. A tea held for all members
and their parents, and faculty completed the busy week. Every member contributed to make Book
Week for 1945 one of the best in the history of the club.
As a special service to the entire student body the club holds the annual Murray Button Sale. The
Buttons are ready for sale for football games.
In the spring the P.T.A. sponsors its annual Carnival in which the Library Club participates. This
year the members painted Hower pots and made pot holders to be sold in L. C. booths.
Another and important club activity was managing the band concert. The club handled all
ticket sales and programs. The Library Club and the Band, working together, succeeded in giving
a top concert.
As an extra service this year, the Library Club collected used clothingfrom its members and sent
the donations to a school for handicapped children in the Netherlands.
The six boxes were received by the director of the deaf and dumb school with grateful appreciation,
and each person who gave clothing received as a thank you letter from the children at the institution
a card, letter, or illustrative material telling about their life at the school.

The addition of many of the new books in the library during the past year was made possible by
the class of 1945. When they graduated, the members of the class left the Library Club one hun-
dred dollars to use for books that otherwise could not be purchased. These were books which spe-
cialized in different fields. Before the books were put on the shelves for the students to read, an

Directed by Miss Audrey Kenevan, the 1945-46 concert band has been the largest in the history
of our school. The band is composed of sixty pieces and has played on several occasions for
school assemblies and P.T.A. meetings. The second annual concert was held on May ninth and
tenth and included band numbers, ensemble music, vocal and instrumental solos. The Annual
Band award was presented to the outstanding senior member of the band at the evening perform-
ance on May tenth.
Uniforms of blue and gold were ordered in the summer of 1945. Their arrival has been de-
layed by the shortage of materials. The purchase of uniforms is another step of the band toward
becoming one of the top bands in the city.
The Sax Quartette-Elizabeth Struble, Louise Weigt, Beverly Gulden, and Audrey Stephen-
son-as well as the regular band has played for P.T.A. meetings at neighboring schools as'Well
as at Murray. The impromptu pep bands, seen at most of our pep assemblies, are familiar to most
of the students and contribute to the school spirit on these occasions.
Miss Kenevan also has charge of the Junior Band composed of forty pieces from the seventh,
eighth, and ninth grades. They played for a Junior High School assembly on February seventh
and gave a concert for the Murray P.T.A. on April second. They will play a concert late in the
school year at one of our neighboring schools.
A Red Cross Aims T 0 Serve
Cards, soap, and other useful articles were
part of Februaryis Red Cross plans. The com-
mittee who assisted included Roger Adams, Jim
Larson, and Richard Reimers.
One of the main objectives of the Red Cross is to help others. The Murray Red Cross is no
different and has been striving this year to reach new heights. Typical are the drive for used
playing cards and the collection of magazines to be used by war veterans. in hospitals and re-
creation centers all over the country. Members have also gathered soap to be used by veterans in
troop trains. StuHied play-things for children's hospitals are on the collection list, too.
The big drive for funds came in March. An assembly presented by students started the drive.
Ar the assembly a movie was shown and Mrs. Madge Kemp gave her annual speech. The movie was
furnished by the downtown Red Cross Oflice.
Guided by Mrs. Agnes Smith, the executive board composed of the four officers-Betty Jane
Welke, president, Astrid Haugan, vice president, Phyllis Buchanan, secretary, and Harry Iver-
son, treasurer-directs the group. The organization is made up of one representative from each
home room. These students carry out the policies ofthe Red Cross.
Here Are Willing Members
Phyllis Buchanan, Betty Jane Welke, Astrid I-Iaugan, and Harry Iverson had a busy
month in January collecting magazines for the Red Cross-iudging from their smiles, they
must have had a successful enterprise.

In their first conference game of the year the Murray eleven
were pushed out of the race for the conference championship by
Marshall who dropped the Pilots 6-0. The Murray eleven trimmed
Mechanic Arts 14-7, in their third challenge. Dick Alquist scored
twice on passes riiled to him by john Lee. Ronnie Cunningham's
dash into the end zone tied the game with Humboldt 6-6. Johnson

Murray was handed a bad season for
1945-46, The Pilots fell short of their op-
ponents' game scoring, but never allowed
themselves to be trounced. Often times they
showed skill and ability to whip the best
team in the city. Never were the bucketeers
beaten by more than twelve points. In fact,
the total score of the season ran 280 points
for the opposition and 270 for the Pilots,
a difference of ten points for the Pilots who
lost six and won three.
High scorers on the Murray squad were
Dick Alquist and Roger Steveken who to-,
raled 73 points and 63 points respectively.l

To Stiff Competition
The cagers maintained a non-conference schedule
throughout the basketball season. The Pilots routed
Humboldt and St. Thomas in pre-season scrimmages.
The bucketeers, rallying over Elk River and St. Cloud
Tech., suffered losses from Washburn, Osceola, Man-
kato, and Mahtomedi. The games provided valuable
training for the less experienced cagers.
Karl Koeneke, Ron Cunningham, and Roger
Steveken placed themselves on the weekly All-City
squads. Although Karl was not a continual high
scorer, he proved an excellent ball-handler. Ron Cun-
ningham played safety position for the Pilots and
with the help of Rog Steveken, held firm against
the fast break.
Dick Alquist and Roger Steveken took berths on
the second team of the final All-City squad.
John Lee did top-notch playing for the team
throughout the season. Red Nelson and Norm Ryn-
ard spelled off the first string with good ball hand-
The new playoff system gave every team a chance
at the top. In the sub-district playoffs, the Murray-
ites dropped Humboldt 32-20. The defeat of the
Pilots by Central 34-19, eliminated the cagers from
the race and ended their season.

Skiers Are Tested In State Meet
Murray's ski team was set to capture the
city championship as it did the previous year,
when a shortage of snow and cold weather can-
celled all city meets. Rudy Thies and Bob
Gordenier returned from the 1945 squad to
form a new ski team.
The ski six took a trip to Duluth, February
9, to enter the State Ski meet, The team, itself,
did not place as a team but they did gain in-
dividual recognition. Rudy Thies placed fifth
in slalom and eleventh in ski jumping.
With hopes of more snow for next year, all
six of the squad will return to Murray to try
for the championship which they held in 1945.

pectively. The Murray shuttle relay team also set a new All-City record.
The trackmen gained a second in the two mile relay and third in the medley and half mile relays. Ron
Cunningham won second position in the 120 high hurdles and Bob Wellsley took fifth in the 100 yard dash.
Dick-Alquist placed third in the shot put at the state track meet, taking sole honors for Murray.
A strong Pilot track team is expected this spring as Murray lost only three men in the graduation of 1945.
The Golf team opened its 1945 season with Marshall at Como Park Golf Course and won 17-1.
Identical scores were tallied in the next two matches with Monroe and Washington. The Pilots lost
824-62 in both contests. The linkmen took their next meet by forfeit from Cretin. The worst defeat of
the season was Wrought by Central, who crushed the golfers 14-1. Johnson, the city champs, defeated the
Pilots 132-IZ. A fifth defeat was handed the linkmen, as Humboldt played the field to win 11-4.
Baseball-Tennis Have Average Season
The Spring of 1945 did not tally a number of winnings for the baseball team, but these boys put forth
a spirit not often equalled by a winning team.
Even the standout pitching of Dan Bornlcamp, who also led the team in hitting, was not enough to
gain victories, but the team managed many times to come within a few bare hits of winning a game. Bill
Zwiener and Vern Rolland did an ecxeptional job in the field and had the breaks come their way, the story
might be different.
TENNIS . . .
Forfeit decided the first meet for the 1946 tennis team. Absence of the Harding Maroons gave the Pilots
a 5-0 victory.
Coached by Louis Keller, the racquetmen drove in their second victory, trouncing Marshall 4-1.
The first defeat of the season was given the Pilots by Johnson who dropped the netmen 4-1 on the
Dunning Courts. An upset was turned on Humboldt, who were beaten by the Murray team 3-2.
The final tennis meet was held on the Como Courts against Central. The Centralites defeated the Pilot

Swimmers Are Resolute In First Year
Y TlJey're off! The dive start-
ed the swimmers in a 50-yard
dash at the Y.M.C.A. where
mort of the meets were lveld.
For the first time in Murray's history a swimming
team, organized by Mr, Hubert Kuefler, entered the
city-wide conference race.
The tanlcmen, under the leadership of Bill Bulger,
captain, finished in seventh place with three wins and
Murray dropped its first three meets to Monroe,
Central, and Wilson before coming through with a
decisive 34-18 victory over Washington.
Important figures in the Washington win were
George Adams, Herbert Putnam, Bill Bulger, and
diver, Don Cromer. The swimmers continued to win
by edging out a close victory over Harding.
Johnson, St, Paul Champions, defeated the Pilots
by a score of 56-17 in a contest which showed the Gov-
ernors in their best performance.
The Murray swimmers bounced back the next week
to whip the Marshall Greyhounds in a hard fought
Murray ended the season with two defeats at the
hands of Mechanic Arts and Humboldt.
Bob Bulger, Steve Archer, Len Norman, Bill Beard,
and Don Hanson supported the team with relay points
and contributed greatly to the wins. Four of the boys
will return next year to form a new tank team.
