Smooth sailing and star performances are possible on the Showboat
lVlurray as the captain, William J. Scanlan, guides the craft and sets an
example for all of the crew.
By way of being a good sailor, lVlr. Scanlan did his bit in Wiorld Wai' II
as a Lt. in Uncle Sam's Navy. .
lVlr. Scanlan is widely known in educational circles, serving as principal
of Gaultier Grade School in St. Paul and as assistant principal of Wilson
and Murray High Schools before becoming lVlurray's present principal. He
has been a member of the State lVl.E.A. Board and was president of the
St. Paul Division of lVl.E.A. this past year.
Progressive, sincere, witty, and friendly, Captain Bill is admired and
respected by all of the Showboatis crew and cast.
Whenever there is a sports, event or a social affair on the billing, lVlr.
Scanlan is the1'e not only giving his support, but enjoying the fun.
On the serious side he is the kindly leader who guides wisely and who
is interested in the welfare of every individual.
It takes perseverance, patience, and an understanding of human nature
to chart the Showboatls course and to produce top performances.
It is with sincere appreciation and genuine gratitude that the staff dedi-
cates the 1950 Pilot to lVlurray,s principal, William J. Scanlan, our Show-
boat,s Captain Bill. S
says the Captain, William J.
Scanlan to Murray leaders
Dave Holdaway, Bill Wegleit-
ner, and ,loan Coulter, stand-
ing. Seated are Marilyn Figg
and lVlr. Scanlan.
One of the best features of
lVlurray High School is the
remarkable cooperation be-
tween students and faculty.

ltis almost curtain time for the grand finale of the
Showboatis production-graduation of one hundred
ninety seniors. They have come a long Way since the
freshman days of 1945. ln fact, the early days now
seem very remote, and events hazy.
As juniors, life became a maze of extra-curricular
activities that kept heads whirling. At the helm of
affairs was Kenneth Spates. class president, and
advisers, Miss Virginia Fertig and Miss Marie Darche.
HDid you ask him yet?7' was the main topic of
discussion for weeks before the Sadie llawkins Dance.
Complete with dancing, zany entertainment, and re-
freshments it was a big success.
The theme, Blue Mist, dreamy music, and beautiful
Howers made the Junior-Senior Prom, which was held
at the Leamington Hotel, May twenty-seventh, an
Bill lVlcCluskey took over as president of the senior
class. To achieve originality, the class gave a Basket
Social. The girls filled gaily decorated baskets with
delectable food. and Mr. Robert Schanke auctioned
these off to the lucky boys.
'flVlother Was A l7reshman,7' a hilarious comedy,
was presented by two separate casts, February second
and third as the senior class play.
Today, the seniors are the chief actors on the
Showboatis stage. It is their day for recognition and
june sixteenth will see this group become the tenth
class to graduate from lVlurray. It is the turn of the
half century as the curtain goes down on the high
school life of the Class ol l950.

Swinging into the current of extra-curricular
life, the class of 1951 selected their junior
oflicers and class rings in the spring of their
sophomore year. Thus organized, the class was
prepared to enjoy activities under the guidance
of Miss Louise Smith and Mrs. Leona Hanson.
Tom Swanson, president, headed a board that

Still mercenary minded, the juniors sponsored
the movie UMargie7' for the student body and
then did a tremendous business in popcorn balls.

Junior-Senior Prom, were launched. Upper class-
men now anticipate an evening of gay enchant-
ment. The event will be held at the St. Paul
Commodore Hotel, May twenty-sixth.

No females allowed! This is the cry heard only once
a month when the Boy sl League meeting is underway.
A vast and varied program was planned by the boys
this year. Each male teacher was assigned to a meeting.
and it was his duty to provide the entertainment. A
Home Talent Show was one of the first programs on
the list. Many undiscovered personalities were brought
into the open.
Various notables in the Twin Cities were guests of
this organization. Among these were Dr. Dave Bartelma
who is the Director of Athletics at the University of
Minnesota and Don Hiley, prep sports writer for the
St. Paul Dispatch-Pioneer Press. lVlr. Ed Ryan, Sheriff
of Hennepin County, gave a talk on the 6Value of a
Good Namei. Several movies ranging from sports to
travel were shown. A round table discussion concern-
ing Manners was voted as one of the most popular
entertainments of the year.
The boys' main project this year was supplying the
study hall with Masonite writing pads.
The Valentinels Day Dance, which was sponsored
jointly by Boys, and Girls, Leagues. was the organiza-
tionis social event of the season. ,lack Veiman and
Lois Moses were crowned King and Queen of the
sophomore class at the dance.
Under the able direction of Mr. john Wooley',
adviser, and Don McGrath, president. Boys, League
has become a favorite organization in school.
ln the spotlight, Franz Koeneke
shadow boxes with the ivories
during the Boys' League Talent
Show. This show was one of the
many programs planned by the
combined efforts of the students
and faculty advisers.
Women Rule It
Eight bells and all was well with the Girls, League
as the board mapped out its course for '49 and 750
early in the fall.
When the girls take over, current teen-age problems,
such as the HNew Look," should it stay or go, or
'adate-baitw and manners, are freely discussed. Varied
and interesting programs, as well as some tried and
true ones were on the agenda for the year.
Freshman Talent was given the spotlight at the first
meeting, presided over by Prexy Barbara Proshek. All
the freshman girls were warmly welcomed into the fold
as the organization got up steam and sailed off to a
In December the girls were charmed by two German boys who are now attending the University
High School. The young men described the schools and urban life of Germany. Their picture helped to
strengthen the feeling of inter-cultural relations between Americans and the peoples of occupied zones.
In February Girls, League celebrated its twelfth birthday with a program on careers in nursing.
One of Murrayis alumnae spoke on practical nursing while the three year and four year nursing
programs were also covered. Next came the serving of the traditional birthday cake.
Added to the annual Caramel Apple sale was another fund raising project, the Valentine's Dance
sponsored with the aid of the Boys' League. The 'Lgreen stuifw earned from these two projects will, in
part, pay for the Mother-Daughter party for the senior girls.
A glance back at the log shows that the Leagueis season was a successful one.

Perhaps the charm of the whistling calliope and
twanging banjos of the oldetime showboat are missing
from Murrayis modern band. but supplied with their
own kind of glamour the members with their director,
Mr. Alex Heron, have sailed along in the current of
school life and managed to come out on top with a
year of very successful performances.
Taking soundings. the band cast oil' its moorings
and entered into a whirl of appearances at athletic
events. Football and basketball games just simply
werenit complete without musical accompaniment.
During hockey season band members donned wool
socks and skates to form once again their now famous
skating unit. Between periods at the State Hockey
Tournament in February' they both awed and delighted
out-of-town visitors with their skating routines. form-
ing a huge revolving circle while Gail Anderson gave
a solo skating exhibition. So in demand were they that
after finshing up programs on home stamping grounds
they were called to play at the Hamline Homecoming
game. Murrayis own gala Homecoming dance was
sponsored by this hard-working group.
That oft spoken of uNew Lookii is here to stay. for
the band has linally completed all payments on their
uniforms. The new gray trousers and gold hat-plumes
add just the needed amount of color and class to the
Civic minded as always the band members got to-
gether to do a special program in observance of the
Childrenis Home anniversary. During the summer
vacation Mr. Heron took his crew members on a trip
to the St. Cloud Veterans' Home to play a concert.
The invitation to lake the trip was extended by the
St. Paul branch of the B.P.O. Elks. The members of
the band enjoyed this venture with hopes to return
again on future occasions. After the ushowsii the band
was transported back to St. Cloud. They put on a four
block parade to the lflks' headquarters where they were
very' nicely entertained by a few of the members. This
contribution by the band to society was given on
Shortly after returning to school. they started warm-
ing up for the year by marching in the Thanksgiving
Day parade sponsored by the Colden Rule Department
Store. Alter this short Hwalkm, and adding to the gay
festivities of the coming season, the band was treated
very cordially by the hrmis representatives.
Adding sparkle and sweet entertainment to the
regular P.T.A. meetings. the band did their best to
please the parents and teachers. They handled the
entertainment part of meetings with finesse.
The month of llecember featured two concerts given
jointly by combined Murray High and Hudson. Vifis-
eonsin, High School bands. The out-of-state unit
played here first and then Murray traveled east not
the borderq and gavc a performance in Vtfisconsin.
An invitation from the Shiely Company to represent
them in the Vilinter Carnival parade was a satisfying
reward for a year of hard work. Exchanging the
familiar gold and blue uniforms for the green and
silver of the J. T.. Shiely Company. the band took its
place in the marching events of the St. Paul Wfinter
Carnival in a manner that made everyone call.

Who is F irst?
Cugisberg, Canteen has sponsored two special dances
this year besides the regular schedule. These included
the annual Sadie Hawkins' Day Dance in the fall-an
event that always shows the ingenuity of the guests
from 4'Dog Patchfl The other popular affair is the
Final Fling, a dance that makes graduates feel that
the high school days are nearly over.
One of the improvements in Canteen this year was
the result of a Murray P.T.A. gift-a record player
turn-table. This gave canteen goers more satisfactory
music than the former juke box.
Another innovation this year was the special pro-
gram established for the seventh, eighth, and ninth
grades. Dances on alternate Friday evenings gave the
younger group an opportunity to become acquainted.
Canteen is operated by a student board under the
supervision of an adviser. While it is helped by the
P.T.A., it is self-supporting and self-governing.
Engagerl in setting up the ping pong table is Paul Christensen,
while Joan Newman, Bob Manlre, Joyce Oliver, Joyce Ann l

Let the show go cn, let the cast take the applause-
someone has to steer the course, and what group on
the Murray does a better job than the Student Council?
Chief Mate, David Briggs, headed a crew that de-
cided to make organization effective and pleasant.
Working behind the scenes, the Student Council, ad-
vised by Mrs. Ruth Eddy, has given superior service
to everyone. Individuals are made conscious of good
citizenship rather than of rules.
From the day school opens in September until its
close in June, the Executive Board of the Council and
room representatives keep the sailing smooth.
Charlotte Miller, as chairman of the school calendar,
headed one of the big projects. An addition to this
yearly routine came in the form of a new procedure
for all groups. Now, any organization wishing to
change a calendar date is required to submit a written
petition to the Council for approval.
Several drives of national consequence had the aid
of the Student Council under the leadership of Mary
Atkinson, chairman. COlT1lllllI1liy Chest and Christmas
Seal campaigns resulted in generous contributions.
January thirtieth, the birthday of the late Franklin
Delano Roosevelt, marked Murrayis annual March of
Dimes Assembly. This year the program was a living
tribute to the countryls former leader. All students,
following the assembly, joined the March of Dimes
in the auditorium.
Special speaker for the assembly was Mr. Raymond
Schlick, chairman of the St. Paul 1950 March of
Dimes. Miss Dagmar Wagner, a former Murray
student and an ex-president of the Student Council,
told of her experiences as a polio patient. The history
of Warm Springs, Georgia, was given by Roy Milton
of the present Executive Board.
Busiest of all S.C. departments this year was the

morning, at the end of each class hour, during lunch
periods, and after school to help students locate stray
Round Student Council fs' Year
There must be rules in order that lVlurray7s nine
hundred ten members receive proper attention. To
that end the Student Council undertook the charting
of the lunch roon1. Students were allowed to choose
their own places and the11 promised to keep them.
ln order to add a bit ol gaiety to the lunch hour
the Student Council provided juke box music each
Friday. Popular and semi-classical music livened the
lunch shifts. So popular was this innovation that the
Hi-Y Chapter l requested permission of the Council
to furnish music each Thursday. This the Council
Study supervision this year took on a new angle
during period six. All seniors in study were seated
in the balcony. At the end of each report period,
students with an honor average were excused. The
Council feels that this innovation has been an added
incentive for better class work.

schedule that can be described as eventful as the ten high school conference teams

were handed a 20-O set-hack hy Mechanic Arts. The opening conference game saw
the Murray team defeat the Marshall Greyhounds 13-6.
Then, with Clyde Pemble playing like an all-city halfback for the second straight
game, the Pilots rolled up two touchdowns in the last half cutting Central's edge, 27-12.
Washir1gton's Bill Follmer spelled defeat for the Pilots as the Presidents rolled
over the Murraymen to the tune of 20-7. The big thrill of the game came when
fullback Tom Steveken ran 68 yards for the only Pilot score.

One of the sharpest teams in Murray's
history reported to Mr. Al Sandberg for
the opening of the year's golf season. Bob
Steveken and Kyle Peterson, veterans from
last year's squad, were the main reasons
for the team's high standings this year.
In the opening round of play, the boys
from the Como district downed Humboldt
12M-22. Murrayas putters chalked up
victory two with a 15-0 shutout over Mar-
shall. Playing in midseason form, the link-
men beat Mechanics 15-0, Monroe 8-7,
Wilson 1416-16 and Harding 9-6. Central
was the only team to turn back the Murray
boys. In the Hnal match of the season the
team scored a 1414-W victory over Wash-
Bob Steveken and Kyle Peterson were
the only team members to place in the city
championship meet at Keller Golf Course.
They both posted totals of 168 for the 36
holes of medal play. These totals put them
into sixth in the tournaments.
Like most of the Murray teams this year,
the golfers placed high in the conference.
Their record for the season was 7 wins and
1 loss. That put them into second place in
Led by Al Nelson, the Murray courtmen
finished in a three-way tie with Central
and Humboldt for the city conference
The netmen opened with a 4-1 non-
conference victory over 21117 High. Follow-
ing this, the Pilots ran up seven straight
conference matches before losing to Cen-
tral 3-2 in a hard-fought battle. Those who
fell before the victorious courters were:
Humboldt, 4-1g Marshall, 5-Og Johnson,
3-2, and Washingtori, 5-0, Harding, 5-Og
and Monroe, 4-1. Coming back from the
Central defeat, the Murrayineii outclassed
Wilson 3-2 to gain the tri-championship.
In the city play-offs, the Pilots fell before
Murray placed Dan Neale and Al Nelson
in the all-city conference tournament. Neale
lost in the finals, but Nelson went on to
defeat his old-time rival, Marlyn Thomp-

player to come out of the city by becoming
the Region IV single champion.

Considered out for the championship, the team, led by the brilliant pitching of Bruce Anderson,
went on to win the next five games, putting the team into the title race. The lirst of the live teams who
slugged it out with the Pilots was the Harding crew. Murray won this game 5-2. With the batting
and the plays in the field excellent, the team trounced Wilson 8-1 and Monroe 10-2. Infield relapses
caused the team a rough time with the Johnson nine as the Pilots edged the Governors out 3-2.

Marshall 5-2 in the final game of the city for the conference race. Murray's chances for the regional

undefeated in conference competition for the second
consecutive year. Self-coached and self-trained, the
team scored victories over Washington, Mechanic Arts,
Monroe, and Minneapolis Roosevelt, but lost to the
state champion Duluth Central team.

the only member graduating.
Revealing their strength, the Murray Swim-
ming teams went all the way to an all-time-high
in conference play to bring home second place
honors. The swimmers defeated all other city
high school teams except the unbeaten Central
Minutemen who have held the title for four years.

conference, the rinkmen got off to a roaring
start. Exploding like an atomic bomb, the
Pilots crushed all opposition to make their
dreams of a city hockey championship come
true. Before the season ended, the Murray
men also repeated as Region IV champions,
and in the State Tournament the Pilots
brought the Consolation Trophy to end a
most successful season.
The Regional Tournament found a strong
Mechanic Arts array fall before the Pilots.
2-0. Johnson won from Washingtoii, and this
put the Governors and the Pilots in the Region
IV finals in the 'Adream gamew of the year.
Playing flawless hockey, the Pilots proved
themselves real champions as they swept past
the Governor sextet, 3-0. Superb play making
and a stand-out performance in the nets by
Goalie Mallory, proved too much for the
strong Johnson men.
The Pilots drew tough opposition in the
opening round of the State Tournament-
facing lnternational Falls. For three periods
Murray outplayed the rugged Broncos, but
Lady Luck failed to smile on the Pilots for
the second straight year. All-State Dick
Dougherty of lnternational Falls drilled in a
hard back hand shot in the sudden death
overtime period to give his team a 3-2 victory.

With the addition of the new hockey rink in Mur-
rayis front yard, Coach Al Sandberg was able to do
some real practicing with his team. Mr. Sandberg had
nine returning veterans, Regional Champs of last
season, on hand for the opening practice session.
These included Pat McGuinn, Bill McCluskey, Bill
Wegleitner, Fred Swensen, ,lim Theis, Mylan Borkan,
Bob Clark, Bob Picha, and Cordie Mallory. Mallory
proved himself to be the leagueis top goalie as he
wound up the season with a .929 percentage, a little
less than a goal per game.
The first line of Bill McCluskey and Jim Theis,
centered by Fred Swensen, the league's ace scoring
threat, was the highest goal getting line in the city.
They collected a total of 36 points in the nine
conference games. Of the five top scorers in the
league, this line claimed three berths.
With the excellent defensive play developed by Pat
McGuinn and Bob Picha throughout the season, any
team would have been rated a title contender-Pat
excelled in vicious body checking, while Bob mastered
in poke and sweep checking.
Murray's second line had speed and class. Little
Rich Hedenstrom, the shifty left wing, came through
with some vital goals in both the Regional and State
Tournaments. Reaching his peak of perfection in the
State Tournament, Bob Clark played three terrific
games, displaying superb defense.
The team's sparkplug, Bill Wegleitner, gave excellent
exhibitions of skill in breaking through defense as he
headed the second line into a furious pace.
Four members of the team received All-City honors:
winger, Bill McCluskeyg center, Fred Swensen, de-
fenseman, Pat McGuinng goalie, Cordie Mallory.
Close call, Cordie, as Dick
Dougherty of International
Falls tries desperately to slip
in a goal. Skating in fast

on breaking up the play.

Winter brings a variety of sports to choose from,
including skiing, skating, bowling, and swimming.
Girls practice many hours in these sports to gain

played because adequate facilities are lacking.
Besides a sports program, G.A.A. also includes
social activities. Members were in charge of the

These superb artists of the photography trade have satisfied Murray students
with their work on senior, group, and other commercial photographs for many
years. Though the studio has contracts with many different schools, they always
try to please each individual. With these traits as their recommendation, the 1950
Murray High School senior class has again chosen GOLLINGS for their photographer.
The work of GOLLINGS has proven to be of the excellent quality it has always
shown in the past years.
