To Miss Catherine Daly
A pioneer in her own righT is Miss CaTherine Daly, vvho sTarTed The
counselling deparTmenT in l 939, when Murray's life as a high school
had scarcely begun. This pioneering work was noT an easy Task, iT
enTailed counTless dilTiculTies and required paTience. Through The years
The guidance program, TosTered by Miss Daly, has grown and is now
recognized by parenTs, sTudenTs, and TaculTy alike as an indispensable
service. A pacemaker in This worThy endeavor, Miss Daly has endeared
herself To The sTudenT body noT only because of her Tireless spiriT and
sympaTheTic assisTance, buT also as a genuine friend.
Miss Daly wins admiraTion almosT insTanTly as she brings To lighT in
a masTerTul way apT illusTraTions ThaT Teach lessons or add "zip" To
oTherwise dull evenTs. As an adviser she has helped hundreds To make
adiusTmenTs and decisions ThaT oTTen aTTecT The paTTerns of Their enTire
lives. To her each person is very imporTanT and is given The aid he as
a disTincT individual needs.
in graTeTul appreciaTion Tor The innumerable services she has ren-
dered Murray sTudenTs, The sTaFf Takes greaT pleasure in dedicaTing
This T949 PILOT To Miss CaTherine Daly.
Now Give 'Way
To New Trends
IT'S WINTER IN MINNESOTA
Minnesota vvinters! Beautiful, crisp mornings when your breath hangs in a white
vapor and the snovv sounds brittle and sharp under your feet. Pine tree branches
heavy with their white burden contribute quiet beauty to nature's winter scenery.
Numb fingers and toes, red cheeks, and cold noses dominate the season.
Hockey players in their bright blue and gold uniforms can be seen practicing
on the near-by ponds and lakes long since frozen. The younger try have their lun
tobogganing on the steep hills, and speed skaters practice tor national titles at
near-by Como Park. This is the time when Murray provides welcomed warmth for
those vvho vvalk or ride to school.

HOBBIES IN STRIDE
In the modern classroom maps and at-
lases furnish a background for understand-
ing timely events in this fast-moving World
of today. Bringing many phases of history
and social studies to light in an interesting
way, Mrs. Marie Gilbert, Miss Virginia Fer-
tig, and Miss Bertha Muedeking make stu-
dents conscious of one world.
Merry Christmas in any language means
fun and merry making. Mrs. Mary Harmon,
Mr. Bernard Winkelman, and Miss Mabel
Surratt have really caught the Christmas
spirit as seen by the smiles on their faces.
Many stories of Christmas are familiar to
English teachers, Mrs. Harmon and Miss
Surratt, but Mr. Vvinkelman, German in-
structor, feels no one celebrates Christmas
with as much festivity as the Germans.
Hobbies make a fascinating pastime and
provide an escape from daily routine as
shovvn by three of Murray's mathematics
teachers. Miss Olive Batschelet takes excel-
lent care of her many plants, and finds
much enioyment in her pitcher collection of
over 300. Miss Louise Smith is very fond of
music, but at the moment she seems to be
interested in discussing geology with Mrs.
Helene Becker. Mrs. Becker has collected
many specimens for her study of geology.
MARK EDUCATION'S PROGR
Each in his chosen field ot interest, yet all keenly aware of education as an
enriching experience, are the above leaders.
Seated are Mr. John Wooley, Murray's assistant principal, Mr. Selmer Berg,
superintendent ot St. Paul's public schools, Mr. William Scanlan, principal ot Mur-
ray, and Mr. Glenn Varner, director of high schools.
Standing and looking at the material under consideration are Owen Eckblom,
senior class president, and Charles Grose, president ot Murray's Student Council.
Here in the atmosphere ot sharing ideas and experiences young people learn
to appreciate and to evaluate the problems of the modern school.

BULLETINS, RESEARCH, WEIGHING
AND SO THE DAY BEGINS
The play's the thing which must be selected with a great deal ot care and consideration by Miss Florence
Vest and the senior class. Librarian Miss Marion Gratz seems to have found a play that she thinks will be a
hit with both. Necessary to all dramatic productions is the attractive scenery made by the art department un-
der the supervision at Miss Marie Darche shown holding a sample.
Health and physical htness are extremely important subjects to Mrs. Inez Gugisberg who instructs every-
thing trom ballroom dancing to volley ball in Murray's gymnasium. Mrs. George Bergup, school nurse, con-
cerned about the health ot each person at Murray, does a little checking up on the faculty. Waiting her turn
on the scale is Miss Catherine Daly, personnel director.
AND TODAY BECOMES YESTERDAY
September 1948-Freshmen arrive wide-eyed and
full of anticipation to begin their high school life.
Sophomores assume that "grown-up" air deceiving
only to the freshmen. Juniors become organized and
begin plans for exciting events including the biggest
of all-the Prom. By this time, seniors are knee-deep
in activities. Football heroes, Student Council offi-
cers, Library Club members, Girls' and Boys' Leagues
strive to make their last year the best, and to leave
behind them memories of a fine class, both to the
school and for their own personal satisfaction. Plans
for a yearbook that will record the progress made in
1949, and make these memories more lasting, are
under way. A curly-haired mascot is created by art
editor Kyle Peterson to take the blame for mistakes
of the inexperienced editors, picture failures, and
budget problems. This little fellow, Sure Nuff,
becomes fascinated by Murray's many sports and
activities, participating actively in certain organiza-
tions and silently observing the rest from his post in
the window of the journalism office.
But nobody notices him as he watches the months
begin to roll by, full of now past pleasures and
events, which Sure 'Nuff discovers go with the home-
work and extra responsibilities of activities to make
school the place where character is formed and per-
sonalities improved and well-rounded. He sees great
progress made in what pupils fondly call student
government under the president, Charles Grose. He
witnesses the formation of a new Hi-Y, the Como
Park Chapter, and sees the two chapters recognized
as organizations of the school.
When the seniors pay their visit to Golling's,
Sure 'Nuff dons his best T-shirt and goes along.
Convinced that his proofs do not do him iustice,
he insists upon retakes as do most of the other seniors.
Sure 'Nuff particularly loves dress rehearsals and
makes a great deal of noise with his fireworks as
sound-effects man for the Senior Class Play, You
Can't Take It With You. He can't be kept away from
the auditorium as the choir practices its operetta,
The Chimes of Normandy, and serves faithfully on
the makeup committee.
One day, while browsing through confidential
matters of the PILOT staff, Sure 'Nuff discovers that
some of his pals are being sent to have their pic-
tures taken in strange costumes. Sure 'Nuff con-
ceals himself in the pocket of Don Harvey who
he learns is posing as a pioneer with Marlene Steph-
ens to depict the theme, "Yesterday and Today",
with Mary Sue Krebs representing the present, look-
ing down at them. Each section is to be introduced
by a student of today looking back on the pupil of
yesterday. On the faculty and class page, Kenneth
Larson witnesses Ralph Engebretson preparing to
discipline seventh grader Gladys Smith in the man-
ner common in the log school house. Gordon Lind
gren and Richard Swanson would make stiff com-
petition for any team as observed by John David-
son. Mary Ellen Hoagland sees Denis Bakke and
Mary Higgins as the sedate couple of a nineteenth
century school would appear.
Now today, Senior Day, is here and The PILOT
is yours to enioy in this present and to keep for
another day when time has continued its march of
progress of events.

FORTY-NINERS MINE FOR IDEAS
Just as the Centennial marks a milestone for Minnesota, so graduation is an important event in the lives
of us, the seniors, who comprise Murray's largest graduating class.
The freshman year found us engrossed with new friends, changing classes, and searching in vain for the
swimming pool supposedly located on the roof. As sophomores we were "on to the ropes" and spent leisure
time at canteens and athletic events. It was in our iunior year that we became organized with the able as-
sistance of Miss Valborg Helseth and Miss Louise Pederson, class advisers. Successful parties and projects fol-
lowed, climaxed by the Junior-Senior Prom at the Women's City Club.
With Owen Eckblom as
president, we began our
fr - senior year. In January You
Ccin't Take It With You, the
hilarious class play, was pre-
sented, and before long
plans for graduation were
The pleasures of the year
were broken by the untimely
death of one of our class-
mates, Louis Peter. Instead
of living in the past, however,
vve seniors look eagerly to
the future. What it may hold
for us we do not know, but
aided by experience and
knowledge gained at Murray,
we feel well able to cope
with the problems that con-
front us as citizens in this in-
creasingly complex society.

STRESSES DEFENSIVE GAME
Lacking the offensive punch necessary for a cham-
pionship eleven, the Pilots completed an eventful
season on the gridiron last fall. Possessing a big,
experienced line and a small backfield, the Murray
men held respect as one of the best defensive teams
in the conference.
Seniors Ralph DeYoung, Bob Steveken, Gordon
Lindgren, Dick Swanson, and Marv Lundgren must be
singled out as the stars of the season. Ralph, who was
the only Pilot to be chosen for the All-City team,
played practically every defensive position on the
team, and he was the spearhead of the offense. From
the left halfback positon, Bob Steveken had a chance
to show his speed and shiftiness on the team's quick-
opening T-formation plays. As the Pilots' leading
scorer, Marv Lundgren played in top form all season,
and he was one of Coach Ralph Engebretson's most
reliable ground gainers from his fullback position.
Gordon Lindgren was the immovable object that
stopped the irresistible force as he led the Murray
line to one of the best defensive records in the con-
ference. Acclaimed by all as one of the best "little
men" in the conference, Dick Swanson proved to be
one of the team's most valuable players as the de-
fensive "spark plug" in the backfield.
In the season's opener the gridders bowed to an
experienced Marshall team 8-O in a pre-season non-
The opening conference game saw the Pilots give
way to a strong Central team by a score of 7-O. The
Pilot offensive at this stage had not started to roll.
In the second conference game the gridders finally
broke the Wilson iinx and defeated the Redmen by
the score of 14-6. Bob Steveken and Ralph DeYoung
tallied for the winners.
Looking like the championship team of the previous
season, the Pilots smashed Humboldt to the tune of
27-T9. Blasting along the ground for three scores and
a fourth through the air, the footballers had it their
own way throughout the contest. Marv Lundgren, Bob
Steveken, Ralph DeYoung, and Tom Wegleitner all
scored for the winners.
Playing fine defensive ball, Murray held a favored
Washington team to a O-O tie. Both teams lacked the
necessary offensive punch to carry them to "pay-dirt",
but fans had their money's worth at this ball game.
Monroe defeated the Pilots in what was called by
many the upset of the year. Marv Lundgren scored in
the second quarter for the Pilots but the extra point
was blocked. Late in the fourth quarter Monroe scored,
kicked the extra point, and sewed up the 7-6 ball game,
THIS IS EASY-OR IS IT?
Here is action galore in this tie game with Mechanic Arts. Bob Steveken, carrying
the ball, is having a path made for him by Herb Lynch and Gordon Lindgren as the
team carries out a reverse play.
Alumni Return to Old Haunts
Two former "M" Club members and lovers ot the gridiron game returned to Murray
this tall as practice teachers in phy ed. Joe Knoblauch, lett, former Murray football
and basketball star, and Rolf Hopkins, an ex-basketball and track man, assisted
the football coaches with both squads.
Number 32 in the person of Bob Steveken seems set to go over a few chalk lines

LET'S GO PLACES
The homecoming game was played with a highly rated and
championship-bound Mechanic Arts eleven. The Murray crowd
saw an unforgettable battle as the two teams fought for pay
territory with one spectacular play following another. By
"bottling up" the Trainer ground game, the Pilots fought Me-
chanics to a O-O tie.
In the final game of the season the Murray gridders really
took their big defeat of the year as a strong Johnson squad
rang up a 20-O total.
While Murray relinquished its city crown when Johnson, Mar-
shall, and Mechanic Arts ended in a triple tie for the title, the
season was anything but mediocre. Senior squad members who
had received experience while playing with the i947 Champs
distinguished themselves individually, and their knowledge of the
game gave confidence and help to new squad members.
Ralph DeYoung is ready to go places in a big way as his
determined expression shows. Nick Combs of Marshall thinks
diFferently and happens to be right in this Marshall-Murray game.

sports hero but his precious sweater that she has in
mind. This is only one of the problems encountered by
members of the "M" Club during the year-who shall
wear the sweater?
The organization is composed of athletes who have
proven their worth in various sports and among whose
members are many of the athletic stars of tomorrow.
While the coveted letter is admired by the feminine
population, only the owners know the hours of eFfort
and toil that go into the earning of the attractive "M,"
This year the "M" Club joined with the G.A.A. in
sponsoring the homecoming dance and assembly. This
event, traditional at Murray, is one that active "M"
Club members plan for, as the old grads return to see
how the new crop of lettermen carry out the "M"
Club's aims and ideals.
President Ralph DeYoung planned with a committee
for a social event in mid-winter, an old-fashioned sleigh-
ride. However, Minnesota decided to have Florida
weather at that time and the event was canceled.
In May two events of importance are on the calen-
der. A letter assembly will be top billing at which time
all boys who have earned letters this year will be given
awards. A second event is that of the induction ot the
senior members into the Murray Alumni "M" Club, an
active organization of former letter men.
Officers during the year were: Ralph DeYoung, presi-
dent, Bob Steveken, vice president, Gordon Lindgren,

President Charles Grose has endeavored this year to
make homeroom representatives, as well as board
members, conscious of the need of selling student self-
government to everyone. ln this he has succeeded to on
extent that the entire group and its adviser, Mrs. Ruth
Eddy, can be proud of the Student Council leading the
woy toward unifying school principles.
During the state convention of Student Councils,
Murray's members housed out-of-town delegates as
their guests. Meeting others engaged in similar school
activities was both proitable and enjoyable. Hdts off

IT'S MUSIC TO MURRAY'S BAND
No snappy marching unit! How dreadful! Of course,
the school of T849 did not have much use for a band.
Neither did it miss having a band playing at assemblies
because it had no auditorium. And neither did a band
perform on skates!
Today, the band, often taken for granted, is very
essential to school life. Parading in many civic, as well
as school affairs, the Murray musicians have become a
well-coordinated marching unit.
This year the band surely made history when its di-
rector, Mr. Alex Heron, dreamed up the idea of a band
on skates for the State Hockey Tournament in February.
With only a few preliminary practices on ice, the band
became famous for its entertainment between the
games at the St. Paul Auditorium. Forming the school
"M", and making large circles, the band made a color-
ful setting for figure skaters, Pam Haas and Shirley
Swensen, as the girls gave solo exhibitions for the
Earlier in the year, Mr. Heron and his ragtimers "laid
them in the aisles" as the group played for many pep
One of the band's never-to-be-forgotten perform-
ances was given at a variety show which they spon-
sored this spring in conjunction with an Elk's group.
Many hours of puffing and pounding were consumed
in preparation for this unusual presentation.
Boarding a chartered bus, the band members trav-
eled to St. Cloud, Minnesota, January 23, where they
presented a concert at the Veterans' Hospital. A return
engagement is planned for July 3.
The month of March featured two concerts given by
the combined Murray High and Columbia Heights High
School bands. The first was performed at Murray and
the second at Columbia Heights.
Everyone awaits the yearly Spring Concert when let-
ters are given to outstanding senior members. This year
proved no exception, and the tricky arrangements and
wide variety of numbers gave friends a pleasant mem-
ory of Murray's band.
Although Murray's award-snatching outfit has ap-
peared very impressive in its blue and white uniforms,
the members are looking forward to next fall when
dark trousers, and new hats bedecked with plumes
will be added to give the band the "New Look".
During the year the band found many other oppor-
tunities to be of service and to "strut its stuft". It
marched with the Mechanic Arts High School band at
the Twin-City football game.
Always performing in fine traditional manner and
always receptive to new ideas in the whirl of busy
today, the band enioyed a pleasant, date-packed
year. Besides group participation, individual entries
were placed in various competitive contests, ranging
from outside sponsors to district and state events. In-
deed the schools of yesterday missed much in the field
of musical expression and broadening interests as is
attested by Murray's enterprising band of today, with
its inspiring director-Mr. Alex Heron.
ON THE GRIDIRON, STAGE, SKATES
In Minnesota fall mornings are either bright and
crisp or damp and foggy, in winter darkness is still
abroad when the schoolhouse doors swing open.
Regardless of weather conditions, the school's or-
chestra members meet the day as "the dawn patrol".
While others are making a last-minute rush before the
bell, the faithful musicians have accomplished an hour's

Crowning work of the year was the orchestra's per-
formance at the "A" Choir's presentation of the op-
eretta, Chimes of Normandy, in April.
Under the direction of Mr. Alex Heron the orchestra
is building for the future as several of its members are
in the junior high school group.

IS IT GIRLS' LEAGIQE DAY?
A familiar question is the above as every Murray girl is a member of this excellent organization. Here seated are
Miss Catherine Daly, adviserg with Mary Atkinson, vice president, and Joan Proshek, president. Standing are pro-
gram chairman, Shirley Swensen, treasurer, Audrey Grove, secretary, Margie Johnsen.
If you are, here is Miss Audrey Heinz of
the Simplicity Pattern Company explaining
the advantageous points of the skating cos-
tume modeled by Ann Rohleder. Catherine
Zandlo is shown wearing a well-tailored
winter outfit. '
In the "good old golden-rule days" there was no opportunity
for great-grandmother to strut across a stage displaying the
stiff, brocaded gown she had just completed. In addition to hav-
ing no style shows, yesterday's school was without home eco-
nomics classes, and girls had to depend upon their mothers' exi-
perience and instruction.
Today, girls have an opportunity to follow the latest fashions.
Two style shows were presented by the Girls' League in coop-
eration with the Simplicity Pattern Company. Members of Mrs.
Leona Hanson's sewing classes were the models. Under the guid-
ance of Miss Catherine Daly, the Girls' League sponsored a wide
variety of programs, the first of which was a talent show fea-
turing this year's new members. Its birthday in February was
celebrated with a party and an honest-to-goodness birthday
Of course, funds are necessary for activities and excellent
programs, and the girls worked hard on their chief money-rais-
ing proiect, the Caramel Apple Sale. The result of this effort
was a mother-daughter party for the senior girls.
The organization, realizing the need of a set of china for the
school's use, began the collection of pennies, dimes, and nickels
for this project. After each meeting members were asked to slip
a few cents into collection boxes at the door. Joan Proshek,
president, feels that it has been a pleasant and satisfactory
year for Girls' League.

CLASS PLAY IS SMASH HIT
"Look out for that firecrackerl" "Gee, are Those snakes real?" "I-lere,
kitty, kitty, kitty!" All were familiar statements during the rehearsal period
of the Senior Class Play, You Can't Take It With You. A double cast was
trained under the direction of Miss Florence Vest, and for weeks Murray's
auditorium resounded with firework explosions, xylophone notes, and type-
writer keys, together with a background of toe dancing and the banging
of a printing press.
Chuck Whitehead and Harold I-lelgeson had fun mastering the art of
pipe smoking while Don Kosel and Chuck Michaelson studied extra hours
on the xylophone. Groucho and Harpo, two small black and white kittens,
received as much attention from the students during rehearsal as from the
audience the nights of the performances.
You Can't Take It With You is the story of one family who believed in
doing whatever each enjoyed most. Everyone was happy pursuing his own
interests until Alice, the only really sane member of the household, fell in
love with Tony, the son of a Wall Street financier. Tony's parents arrived
unexpectedly at the Sycamore's house only to be arrested by police and
thrown in iail. For awhile it seemed as though things would never turn out
Barbara Geddes and Roger Wood in a
scene that proves true love can run
right for Tony and Alice, but
Grandpa stepped in at this point
and made Tony's father realize
money and Wall Street were not
his real sources of happiness. The
play ended on a happy note with

Grey hairs should surely adorn the head of Robert Joseph by
the end of the year. As business manager of the Murcuie he has
directed a thrifty group of penny-pinchers whose problem it was to
hnance the paper and make ends meet. Not the least of these
worries was to keep the editors from planning expensive lay-outs.
Among the schemes to keep "The Murk" out of the red were the X.-
sale of plastic book covers and the popular "singing telegrams" 4
service. In the latter the Murcuie is greatly indebted to choir mem-
bers and Mrs. Helen McGeever, music instructor.
Circulation managers found work simplified this year by Bob
Joseph's post office system of distribution. It was indeed a busy
year for the Murcurie business staff and its adviser, Miss Elsea
Indispensable to the publications department are the three secre-

YESTERDAY A DREAM
Traditional Christmas songs and carols were present-

For the first time in Murray's history, the majestic strains
of Handel's great "Hallelujah Chorus" echoed through
This and the singing of carols in the halls were the
choir's inspiring contribution to the spirit of Christmas,
which was enlarged by a special trip which the carolers
made to Ancker Hospital.
Talent was discovered among the junior class mern-
bers of the "A" Choir during tryouts for the i948 op-
eretta, H. M. S. Pinafore, and a number played leading
roles in the production. The third operetta by Gilbert
and Sullivan to be presented at Murray, Pinafore is
the story of a lowly sailor in love with the captain's
daughter who must choose between him and her high
social rank. The situation is reversed, however, when a
nursemaid of the captain and sailor admits that she
confused the two as children.

TODAY A CULTURAL JOY
Indispensable to Murray High School is its eighty-
voice choir. Its well-trained members offer a marked
contrast to the singing school of Minnesota's territorial
Saint Paul from its early history has always been as-
sociated with cultural achievements, and in that respect
Murray's choir has added to the advancement of music
in giving both participants and listeners an opportunity
to appreciate the best in music. This year the choir,
directed by Mrs. Helen McGeever, has contributed an
outstanding year's work to Murray's history. Early in the
tall choir members chose Paul Richardson as their presi-
dent, Joan Piper as vice president, Suzanne Preus as
secretary, and Donald Harvey as treasurer.
The busy schedule for i948-49 began apprehensive-
ly with the procedure of testing voices which was re-
peated as a demonstration lesson for Dr. Winslow's
class in music education from the University of Minne-
sota. After members had been placed in their respective
sections, the choir was ready to begin rehearsing for
assembly programs. At a meeting of the M, E. A., four
members from each of the eight sections were selected
to sing in the All-State Chorus led by Don Craig, one
of Fred VVaring's choral directors. These numbers were
repeated for an assembly at which Charles Grose, an
active "A" Choir student, directed, and for a P. T. A.
meeting at which time Miss Mathilda Heck acted as
A date of significance to the choir and to every Mur-
rayite with romantic inclinations is February l4, Valen-
tine's Day. Singing telegrams, sponsored by the Mur-
curie, were sung by groups of two and three choir
members acting as cupid's messengers.
A great deal of excitement accompanied the big
auestion of the year-what operetta was to be given?
The Chimes of Normandy or The Bells of Corneville
was scarcely selected when a new problem arose. Try-
outs for leads uncovered a great deal of talent, which
made choosing the large cast extremely difficult. After
extensive tryouts and keen competition the parts were
double and triple cast. Hours of practice during and
after school to perfect solos and choruses, rehearse the
orchestra, and prepare pre-views resulted in two per-
formances given in April when the choir successfully
and ably presented the finished operetta. In spite of
the hard work necessary, the cast found time to have
fun and to laugh at their problems.
Still the year's program for the choir was not over.
As in previous years following the operetta, the choir
directed its energy to more practicing so that members
might honor the Class of T949 at baccalaureate and
Other music students augment the "A" Choir with
programs in and outside of school. The Harvest, a can-
tata, was given by members of the "B" Choir, who re-
hearsed numbers to be sung by the "A" Choir in addi-
tion to their own in case extra voices were needed. For
the Christmas program of Girls' League, the Girls' Glee
Club presented a group of songs and carols with so-
The Girls' Sextette and the Boys' Quartet or Melody
Four are two musical groups that have become well-
known outside of school as well as to the students for
their excellent singing and lively programs.

To everyone who is responsible for the organization
of Boys' League congratulations are surely the order of
the day. Both officers and board members have been
building the foundations during these past months for a
promising Boys' League future.
While many boys have been engaged in sports or
affiliated with other clubs, both Principal W. J. Scanlan
and Assistant Principal John Wooley felt that an or-
ganization was needed that would in some way unify
the common interests of high school boys.
Meetings each month were of interest to members as
sports, occupational opportunities, summer work, civic
attitudes, and other topics received consideration. Mr.
Wooley, adviser, aided by president Jack Folsom and
the program committee, endeavored to secure top
speakers and entertainment.
"While our field has been somewhat limited this
year," comments Mr. Wooley, "we hope to have a very
active and useful Boys' League next fall. It takes time
to get rolling. We aim to hold the interest of our mem-
bers, to aid all boys who need individual help, and to
be of service to the school."
The organization's social event of the season was a
valentine dance sponsored iointly with Girls' League.
During intermission Patricia Palarine was chosen as the
queen of the valentine celebration.
Jack Folsom, president, deserves special mention for
helping to get Boys' League into the field of the school's

derived from sipping "cokes" and smoothly

Although most of the dancing at the Mur-

popular vein, square dancing was met with
the enthusiastic approval of the students
who clapped in rhythm with the calls.
Special dances including the Harvest Ball

Acquire More Than Technical Skills
The better positions in business demand more of young people today than a working knowledge of a
few business skills. Successful applicants for top-flight positions must have pleasing personalities, initia-
tive, poise, enthusiasm, and ability to get along with others. Fortunately, these qualities can be ac-
quired by study and training iust as surely as skill in typing, shorthand, and accounting can be
acquired. This program of study is called "Career Training" here at the Minnesota School of Business.
In these classes, the fine art of successful human relations is carefully studied under the guidance of
