Seniors Complete the Scenic Route
By way ofa little respite from the business of keeping the Senior Class affairs moving smoothly, the
Senior Board takes time out for a brief lunch. Seated: Fred Swensen, sergeant at arms, Joan Oakins,
secretary, Yvonne Kulenkamp, vice president, Richard Hedenstrom, treasurer, William Hendrickson, ser-
geant at arms. Standing: Barbara Smich, Virginia Hogberg, David Turner, president, Harlan Sween,

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-
Contrary to previous classes, this group had an
early start in becoming unified by electing officers
and choosing class rings late in their sophomore
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
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.

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.
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.
Hours to be remembered are the very noisy rehearsals
of the German Band and the squeaks and squawks

corners of the stage and bandroom. 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

again next year, when the organization will be rolling

Murcurie editors' lives less complicotedeexcept for one
thing. Business rnanager Ray Grove's stock question, "How

The business staft helped to oftset rising costs by spon-
soring o movie ond a successful Cupid Messenger Service

The editorial staff had the usual last minute rushes by
page editors and advertisers, the searches for lost copy,
and the sudden news breaks-all of this added up to a
year of responsibility and experience for the Murcurie Stat?

Enjoyment came to school and community "on wings ot
song" as the "A" Choir started out a season ot brisk activity
with Mrs. Helen McGeever as director.
Last spring's operetta, a complete sellout, introduced a
bit of old Italy. Both contadine lgirlsi and gondolieri tboysi
liked the gay and distinctive music ot The Gondoliers by
Gilbert and Sullivan. The audience was captivated by the
brilliant performances ot soloists and choristers.
Aiding a great humanitarian cause, the choir caught
the spirit and gave a dynamic service ot song tor the
United Nations Day assembly this tall.
Switching to a lighter vein, because they are not always
serious, various members ot the group livened up many a
pep test. lRemember? "Murray Has a Football Team" to
the tune ot "Goodnight lrene."i
The lovely glow of candles, the measured steps ot the
choir members as they walked down the aisles, and the
glorious strains ot "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" set the scene
tor the beautitul Christmas assembly. The choir's repertoire
ot old Christmas carols, interspersed with newer numbers,
made the program one ot the best ever given. "Hallelujah
Sunny Skies, Cay Costumes, and lilting tunes marked last spring's production of The Gondoliers, a Gilbert

Everything from Stan Kenton to Sammy Kaye can
be heard Friday nights in the Murray gym when Can-

dances are held for grades seven, eight, and nine.
These special social gatherings give the iunior high

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.

It was sprints like this that helped Jim Deane capture the
city crown and become one of the outstanding cross country
high school figures in this area.
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.

The team, although losing meets at Duluth and Morris,
showed up well, and learned valuable lessons from
these powerful aggregations.

Rain, snow, and more rain marred the
path ot the Pilot netters as early matches
had to be postponed. Eventually the sun
smiled out Murray way and the courts
began to see action. The squad's roster
included Dick Keith, Dave Briggs, Bob
Hahnen, Larry Lang, and Bob Beard.
Murray gained its tTrst match by tor-
teit 2-O from Mechanic Arts. Getting its
initial court competition, the Pilots edged
Monroe 3-2 with Dave Briggs and Larry

bounded back to win victories from
Washington 5-O, Humboldt 5-O, and
ln the season's tTnale, the Pilots shut
out Marshall 5-O to Hnish the conference
season with six wins and two losses.
The scenic route ot Murray sports is
sure to present a challenge in golt circles.
The T950 team, led by veteran Pete
Beard, was no exception as the linksmen

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-
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
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.

Speed Skaters Display Trophies
Cartoonist Bob Manke seems to be brimming
with ideas as he illustrates how some young
ladies can make the turf fly farther than the
golf ball-doesn't help the score though. Bob
also demonstrates that girls and tennis seem
to be forever in the air.
Center. Delores Hassie, Carol Stoven and
Georgia Hagerman display vim, vigor, and
vitality as they illustrate to all interested how
to put the figure in trim.

Como Lake. Here Judy, Mrs. Rosalee Huebner,
and Karen examine the trophies.
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
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
