Out on the hillside, Julianne Preda, Joyce Bergstrom, and Phil Aus accomplish two things at once-homework, and a dose of vitamin "D" as they bask in the fall sunshine. lt's Langford Park for clowns Victor Vainov- skis, Franz Koeneke, and Dick Slind.

Moving up the aisle in a procession of white and royal blue, the seniors of i951 remember the well-traveled route leading to this twelfth Mur- ray graduation. Contrary to previous classes, this group had an early start in becoming unified by electing officers and choosing class rings late in their sophomore year. Many vigorous money making activities were scheduled when, as juniors, Tom Swanson, presi- dent, took over. Assisted by Miss Louise Smith and Mrs. Leona Hanson, advisers, two big dances, the Sweater Dance and Sadie Hawkins Dance were successful. Other activities included a popcorn ball sale and a very popular movie, Margie. A spring night, made more entrancing by the theme, "Twilight Time," will long be remembered as students look back on the prom, May twenty- sixth, at the Commodore Hotel. David Turner, a Murrayite of only a year, as- sumed the duties of senior class president. A por- tion of the class dues was donated to the crippled children mentioned in Paul Light's column in the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Another donation went into the fund for the European orphan that Mur- ray is aiding. Sketches of life in the "Roaring Twenties" were depicted on December fourteenth and fifteenth as the dramatic senior production, Cheaper by the Dozen, was performed. Programs designed by James Preus added an original touch to the event. Sponsoring the movie, lt Happened One Night, brightened the day of January tenth for most of the student body. A committee, headed by Eleanor Tyson, planned and staged an unusual and festive party for the seniors, March second, Entertainment ranged from bingo and Ping-pong, to square dancing. Today finds many seniors receiving scholastic honors and looking eagerly forward to a new and different semi-open prom, May twenty-fifth, and graduation, June fifteenth. Although busy planning these occasions, they seriously consider life's various highways which are leading them into the future. Page thirteen iii?

LTR Senior Band member Dell Ann Vance points out a difficult spot in the score to Charlotte Quinn and Gor- don Prickett. Via foot, skates, and busses, the Murray High School Band's itinerary covers varied events from football games to formal concerts. Marching, of course, is via foot. Every day, weather permitting, the Band is out for an hour's session of practice on the original formations worked out by Mr. Alex Heron, director. One of the special events of the season is the Murray-Wilson football game, at which the combined Bands perform intricate maneuvers. At home on skates as well as on terra tlrma. the Band exhibited its versatility in flashy demonstrations. Be- tween the periods of hockey games, the Band and solo performers Darlene Dixon, Karlene Boyd, and Bernice Fortmeyer entertained the spectators. Being recognized as the first skating Band in the country, the group received wide acclaim. Page thirty-four aku N s Here drums along the walk are a transportation problem for Director Alex Heron and Richard Heden- strom, Band president. The All-Star Band founded by Mr. Alex Heron and Mr. William Wilke, Columbia Heights High School Band director, consists of eighty advanced high school music- ians from Columbia Heights, Cretin, Monroe, Murray, North St. Paul, and Washington high schools. The Mur- ray Band contributes from ten to twenty players for each monthly session. ln one short year this Band has grown to an organization of considerable repute. Blue and gold balloons, crepe paper festoons, and dreamy music created a gala mood for the Homecoming Dance sponsored by the Band. Members of the hard working committees received their rewards from the enthusiastic turnout and the oh's and ah's of delight expressed by those who attended.

Both groups played on numerous occasions including pep assemblies, the Talent Show, and at church socials. An over-abundance of tall, broad boys necessitated the purchase of six new uniforms this year. This was made possible through funds received from the annual magazine drive in which the entire Band participated. The coming of spring brought the concert season to the door. Frantic preparations began so that the annual concert would be a smash hit. Committees were ap- pointed, musical numbers selected, and tickets and pro- grams made ready. Always popular, this year's concert was no exception. Stirring military marches, impressive overtures and chorals, and plaintive blues songs made up the program. Murray's music makers helped brighten the days of the men at the Veteran's Hospital at St. Cloud. The group also took part in Thanksgiving and Memorial Day parades, all this proves that the Band members are community minded. Climaxing a gay and colorful year's route was the annual banquet. Seated at the head table were Presi- dent Richard Hedenstrom, Vice President Roy Milton, Secretary Gail Holzinger, and Treasurer Judy Spriester- sbach. Lucky is the word for a few members who were selected to play with the All-Star Band at the State Clinic of Minnesota Music Educators. Officers and Band members agree that this year has been pleasant. Work and play can be fun. Many of the members will be back on the Murray "Band-Wagon" again next year, when the organization will be rolling along to more thrills.

A second affair of this kind had the basketball and hockey teams as honored guests. The boys admitted to a bit of sentiment when they sponsored the Valentine Dance with Girls' League.

Page fifty-two Canfeen .giaarlei ffze Social! ,Siena Everything from Stan Kenton to Sammy Kaye can be heard Friday nights in the Murray gym when Can- teen holds forth. In addition to regular Canteen nights, dances are held for grades seven, eight, and nine. These special social gatherings give the iunior high students an opportunity to become acquainted with each other. Following the homecoming parade in October, the Canteen Committee comprised of Junior Class members, sponsored a sunlite dance honoring all the queen can- didates. Campaign managers took the occasion to get vote promises from the still uncertain electorate. Under the direction of Canteen, the St. Anthony Park Association gave a neighborhood Halloween party. This community affair met with general approval as everything was free and no admission was charged. Girls did the asking and also paid the bill when Sadie Hawkins Day arrived. Those who set the fashion for the event wore original creations of patched burlap. During the evening modern and square dancing, a mock wedding, and individual contests took place. All pro- ceeds were given to the Junior Class. Canteen is proud of its history in that its beginnings were purely democratic. Several students in the i945-46 school year felt that the district ottered few recreational facilities to students. An editorial in the Murcurie helped the group give voice to its desires. Following this, a few parents, who read the edi- torial, brought the matter before the P.T.A. The Can- teen was launched. The success of the organization each year depends upon the Canteen committee who is in charge of the entire program. Adviser is Mr. Robert Schanke.

The hard running of Bob Picha and Clyde Pemble, and Lloyd l-lilmanowski's passing and quick kicks proved to be too much for the bewildered Maroons. Behind the time quarterbacking of Roger Davidson and the line backing of Dick Richardson, Franz Koeneke, and Bob Picha, the Pilots blasted Central's Minutemen 26-l2. Outclassing, outrunning, and outplaying the opposition throughout the game, the Pilots stopped Wilson 26-6 for their third conference victory. Steady gains by Pemble and Picha and a touchdown pass by l-lilrnanowski resulted in four Pilots scores. Plagued by fumbles throughout the first halt, Murray played a fine Mechanic Arts team to a 6-6 tie after trail- In Torrid Gridiron Struggle ing 6-O at the halt.

The Murray harriers galloped to another successful season placing third in the city and twelfth in the state meets respectively. The self-coached, self-trained team boasted victories over Mechanic Arts and Monroe, while losing to Central, Marshall, Morris, and Duluth Central. Scores of dual and triangular meets were: Murray l5, Monroe 55, Murray 28, Mechanic Arts 29, Morris 2l, Murray 38, Marshall 28, Murray 29, Duluth Central l9, Murray 44, Central 23, Murray 45, Mechanic Arts 78. The team, although losing meets at Duluth and Morris, showed up well, and learned valuable lessons from these powerful aggregations. The City Meet was run at Highland over a rugged mile and eight-tenths course. Murray finished a strong third in the meet with Jim Deane Hnishing first in indi- vidual honors. Andrew Boss proved to be the surprise of the year when, after a late start, he finished eighth in the City Meet. Some of the other outstanding individual perform- ances of the year were Doug Currence's twelfth and Dick Slind's fourteenth in the City Meet. Taking into consideration the fact that the team had only three returning lettermen they had a very respect- able season's record. A city championship is very possible next year with six veteran harriers returning, two of the best prospects for the team will be Gordon Prickett and Douglas Currence.

'M, Club Athletes Renovate Locker Rooms Proudly wearing the "M" this year are fifty boys who wave won this award in one or more sports during their Jears at Murray. The "M" Club is one of the school's oldest organizations and its members each year plan some constructive addition o the physical education department at Murray. The T951 aggregation financed, supervised, and worked to complete he tile flooring in the boys' new locker room, This much ieeded improvement added to the enioyment of all mem- ers. The acquisition of good benches for the locker room lso helped to give both coaches and boys a place for .onferences. To finance this program the "M" Club presented a movie, 13 Rue Madelaine, and gave the annual "M" Club Revue. The G.A.A.-"M" Club Banquet was again a highlight of the social year for both faculty and the organizations' members. This formal dinner given by the sports' clubs is the only one of its kind in the Twin Cities.

Page seventy-th ree G.A.A. Takes Seasons in Stride Around the year instead of around the clock is a good phrase to describe the activities of G.A.A. This organiza- tion's members combine recreation and learning in a perfectly synchronized way as the sports enjoyed make for more healthful and better living. ln the fall, soccer led off the sports. Horseback riding, another activity, was chosen by only a few members because of the lack of adequate facilities and transpor- tation. Winter came with a heavy schedule including bowling, basketball, swimming, rope jumping, and tumbling. These are all popular sports among the girls while they are trying hard, eyeing their point record, and looking forward to that All-City letter award in the spring. Invitational basketball games proved popular as it gave the girls a chance to try their skill against other teams in the city. Volleyball was an activity which brought most members to the gym in early spring giving the girls something to dd while waiting for muddy fields to dry up. Square dancing filled many pleasant hours also. After a strenuous winter program, the girls were anxiou for the spring activities to take them out-of-doors. Softbal and tennis proved stimulating. Social activities were included in the program of G.A.Al Board members were in charge of the homecoming buttol sale in the fall. They also sold holly and mistletoe as money making project during the holiday season. At th annual G.A.A.-"M" Club Banquet, All-City letters and Murray letters were awarded and new officers announced. G.A.A. board members worked in committees to make the banquet a big success. Under the direction of Mrs. Rosalee Huebner, G.A.A added another year to its proud record. Officers for 1950- 51 were President, Eleanor Tyson, Vice President, Pat Ken- nedy, Recording Secretary, Joan Strobeck, and Secretary- Treasurer, Jeannine Larson. G.A.A.

Page seventy-tive Who Plays Today? Basketball is always a popular intramural sport, and these boys are no exception to the rule. Playing are Warren Nelson, Ronald Werner, Bill Hendrick- son, George Carley. Fall archery means more than hitting the target. Here Mr. Robert Schanke, right, explains the need for checking the sport's equipment carefully. Left to right are Bob Gruber, Garry Quam, Lester Brunette, Tom Anderson, Reinhold Hedstrom. Ping-pong serves as a popular indoor activity during the winter months. Games are very fast and competition is keen. Getting set for the day's game are Norman Peterson, Neil Johnson, Bob McDonald, Warren Nelson, Roman Borkan, Ed Connors. For the lower classmen and older non-varsity boys, the after-school intramural program is the popular hour of the day. Here, supervised and coached by Mr. Robert Schanke, Murray boys find some type of sport that they thoroughly enioy. Approximately H5 boys have participated in the intramural program this year. While teams represent- ing grades seven through twelve meet in scheduled competitive contests, the same individuals are not always in play. Intramurals are subject to the seasons. Fall finds touch football and Ping-pong, and archery the Page seventy-six favorites. When winter arrives, hockey draws the largest numbers, with bowling taking second place. Incidently, volleyball and basketball are sponsored by the two Hi-Y Chapters at Murray. Springtime includes a wide variety of sports. For boys who are interested, there is rifle range practice. Baseball, horseshoes, and golf are among other ac- tivities enioyed by the sports-minded individuals. One rule of intramurals is that no member of either a senior or iunior varsity is allowed to take part in this program while engaged in conference competition.
