Z .D P P These are our changing years-years when we experience growing pains, Thrilling momenTs, hearTbreaks, and The laughTer and delighT of The sheer ioy of living. We remember ThaT lab hour when H20 and H2504 jusT didn'T mix, and We remember The Thrilling momenT of a homecoming assembly. We recollecf The exciTemenT of nighT games and The Talk 'TesTs afTerwards, and we recollecT Those informal discussions wiTh Teachers and counselors concerning The TuTure. We recall our grief upon hearing of The deaTh of Murray's principal, Mr. John M. Wooley, who died of inTanTile paralysis lasT AugusT. And who of us will TorgeT The confusion and TrusTraTions of This year when plasTerers, carpenTers, and painTers became a parT of The daily rouTine as The rehabiliTaTion program progressed.

Here music and English teachers listen to records that will be purchased for the audio library. lt is almost certain that some of these records will be Mr. Datko's favorite ballads. Left to right: Mrs. Helen McGeever, vocal music, Miss Margaret Glenn, English and journalism, Mr. Edward Datka, English, Mr. Alex Heron, instrumental music. Mr. William Addison, University of Indiana alumnus, comments to three Minnesota University graduates that English is the common denominator for all school subjects. Miss Mary Healy, Miss Florence Vest, and Miss Mabel Surratt agree. Murray's English teachers have frequent meetings to consider new trends in teaching and to discuss new books and materials. faculty notes school's Bath new to Murray this year are Mr. Leslie Tripp, principal, and Mr. Harry Falk, assistant. Coming to Murray from Mechanic Arts, Mr. Tripp has given new impetus to the school's forward progress in "These Changing Years." Mr. Falk, former Humboldt counselor, finds his first year at Murray stimulating and challenging. Below, Ada Moore, a journalism l student is having that all-important interview with Mr. Glenn Varner. Mr. Varner, Director of Secondary and Vocational Education, is also one of the Saint Paul assistant superintendents. He has a keen interest in today's youth and enjoys visits to the Saint Paul High Schools. Page ten 1'5" changing program The congenial and indispensable office ladies, Mrs. Martha Bussiaeger and Mrs. Elizabeth Loe, are especially happy since the new offices have been completed. In the early fall, Mrs. Bussiaeger commented that the tem- porary ottices resembled Grand Central Station. Mrs. Loe is answering the ever-ringing telephone while Mrs. Buss- iaeger is enioying the new electric typewriter. Below, Miss Gladys Rose and Mr. James Palmer, guid- ance personnel, are kind enough to face the camera for a moment. Always busy with problems or tests, they here have the record book of grades before them. This is the tirst year that Murray has had two counselors and both are happy in be in new aftices.

One of the PTA's proiects is the ree furnishing and redecorating of the teachers' room. Donna Lubke, who represents the students on this committee, has an idea here, as is indicated. Here, each is an expert in her own field and all the fields are related! Mrs. Mary Flaherty, school nurse, dis- cusses a problem case with Mrs. Ann Fisker of the home economics department, and Mrs. Loretta Leary, visiting teacher. These three members of the school personnel do much to foster good relationships between the school and the home. J. ff fig 'N ss. Page eleven WhaT goes on here?

Miss Grace Mackey, English instructor, holds a sweater that Miss Marion Gratz, librarian, purchased in Europe last sume mer. In the center is Mrs. Patricia Fritsche, interested in Mr. Howard Hathaway's discourse about his European tour. Both Miss Gratz and Mr. Hathaway have excellent pictures that tell the foreign story. Mrs. Fritsche is Murray's girls' physical education instructor, and Mr. Hathaway teaches Spanish and physics. It is a pleasant interlude, a free hour, and a cup of steaming coffee. Enioying this break in a busy day are Mrs. Ruth Eddy, social studies, Mrs. Louise Pederson, mathematics, Mr. Bernard Quinn, social studies, and Mrs. Lucille Smith, chemistry. Away from gym classes, social studies, and biology, these three coaches of track, basketball, and baseball, meet in the equipment room to look over the needs for the seasons. Mr. Robert Ritter seems to like the bat. Mr. Thomas Thompson, new to Murray this year, has developed a snappy gym team. Both Mr. George Rose and Mr. Ritter assist with football, as well as coaching in their respective fields. Below, Mrs. Winifred O'Dwyer, cafeteria manager, carves a turkey while Mrs. Vida Stiles, assistant, is giving a sample to Mr. Marvin House, Murray's chief custodian and best friend of both teachers and students. Mrs. O'Dwyer is new to Murray this year, while Mrs. Stiles is an old favorite with students, because of her art in making delicious cakes and pies. it Www . f. .... W9s,1,r,..,.,.L,x ,wx xy as . . ,.

There are struggles with math, Latin, and biology, but as The months go by, everyone becomes a real Murrayite. Suddenly it is September, 1951. More worldly now, The sophomores look about Tor class advisers, and They are Tortunate enough To get Miss Louise Peder- son and Mr. Howard Hathaway. An election results in Gilbert Larson becoming The class' tirst president. IT seems impossible, but iT is September again. Robert Gruber becomes The junior's president. This is a social and business year, tor money is needed tor the all-important Prom. Following The sponsoring ot "Who is Ewald?" ask James and John Broen, new seniors from Be- midii, Minnesota. "Well," says Dan Hill, "it started with The eighth grade class ot 1949- 50. They bought Ewald for titteen cents and brought him to school, but They carried Their play with the mascot too far." Miss Louise Pederson relieved the class ot Ewald, the lizard, and put it into The hands ot the office, where it stayed. Then, The class bribed the office with seventy-tour cents to re- turn "Little Ewald." He was then given to Miss Pederson, to be kept until the class of '54 was to be graduated. Ewald has long since been ex- hibited in a glass frame, but Miss Pederson insists that he will be graduated just the same.

It is September, 1953 and The seniors begin a year ot interesting activities in- cluding The class play, movies, dances, a carnival, and a banquet. And Roger Toussaint presides over all with dignity and assurance. Miss Pederson and Mr, Hathaway are proud ot their seniors, and The seniors wish to record in print Their appreciation and thanks to Two exceptionally kind and understanding advisers, The flash back ends-from here on The seniors be- come part ot the loyal alumni ot Murray High School.

According to Nathaniel Aus, president, the year's activities have been "Just a sample of what's to come before the class graduates." Organizing as sophomores, the class asked Mr. Albert Sandberg, who has since left Murray, and Mr. Alexan- der Heron to be their counselors. Class rings were or- dered in November and received during May that year. King Bob Johnson and Queen Ada Moore ruled over the festivities of the Valentine Dance. Last October started the juniors off with a bang at a pow-wow held at Kaposia Park, The following month the traditional Sadie Hawkin's Day Dance, sponsored by the juniors, brought them needed funds. "Stairway to the Stars" was the theme of the most glamorous evening of the year, the Junior-Senior Prom which was held May seventh at the Minnesota Terrace of the Nicollet Hotel.

In order to help finance the dance of all dances, the juniors resorted to various means of raising money in- cluding a technicolor movie, "Sierra" Before the year is out, a class picnic will be held. This outdoor funfest will be their last meeting as juniors. gf' A 5- .tvs cr 'vs XX. :L Debonair and gay are the Junior Class Board as they join the home- xk coming parade.

In classes the iunior high students found new experiences in reading, Latin, and in math. ln moments of leisure they discovered that there was fresh tar on the roof, few stools in the cafeteria, and a wonderful day called Pilot Day.

Central used five basic plays to swamp the Pilots 36-6 in the opening game of the season.

An exciting 27 yard pass to Phil Hobrough from Chuck Massie to the Central ten football, homecoming enliven autumn scene The auditorium was hushed, tense with suspense. Then ear-splitting screams shattered the stillness-and Judy Piper was crowned Murray Homecoming Queen of l953. lt was a happy moment for Judy, for now she reigned over the festivities that belong to the football season. With the tense moment over, everyone relaxed to an entertaining musical program under the direction of Mrs. Helen McGee-ver, choir director. The Octet, a trio, and a solo by Bill Snodgrass highted the program. "More floats than ever," was the comment after the Homecoming parade. Original ideas and clever construc- tion made the parade a big hit. Then the spotlight was thrown on the Homecoming game with the Pilots out to "Mow Monroe." A thrilling 90 yard run by John Sandquist and a TO yard pass to Dick Sturmer from Chuck Massie gave the crowd some chills. yard line, and a beautiful cutting, dancing run by Hobrough scored Murray's only tally. Humboldt's Indians nipped Murray in the closing seconds with a pass interception which went for a TD. The game had the fans in a frenzy as the Pilots were edged T2-6.

A determined Monroe player strives valiantly to stay inbounds but is driven out by hard- driving Buz Grove. Phil Hobrough, after leav- ing an opponent sprawled on the field, races in to back up the play and prevent further yardage. Although stopped on this play, Mon- roe was too powerful for the Pilots to hold. Murray played hard before the Homecoming crowd and gave the people many thrills, but was not able to prevent the Greenies' oft- tackle slants from reaching pay dirt. Monroe played a bruising game which weakened Mur- ray's thinly manned personnel. Scoring with 47 seconds left, Murray dropped the contest 25-l3. tackling . . . Number 36 of Johnson had his eyes on the goal line until Gib Larson raced from behind to bring him down with a leaping tackle. Number i5 of Johnson is coming up too late to help out his teammate. Johnson was Johnny- on-the-spot for Murray fumbles and earned a E9-6 victory over the Pilots. The Governors recovered four fumbles, the last halting a 54 yard Pilot march on the Johnson 20. Don John- son, coming in for Chuck Massie, threw a 22 yard pass to Gib Larson for a tally with only TO seconds to play. This was a tribute to Mur- ray's determination and Hght which never left the players. running . . . Phil Hobrough is in for a rough landing as he tries to leap through the Johnson line for a good gain. Four players are about to swamp Hobrough as the Murray line failed to provide any blocking. After the Johnson game, Mur- ray ran into a tough Harding squad. The Pilots required only two beautifully executed plays for its tally. Halfback Paul Berge swept left end for 45 yards to the Harding TS, and Phil Hobrough faded to his right and passed diag- onally to Chuck Massie for the T.D. This game dropped the curtain on the city prep foot- ball scene, and it dropped the Pilots into the basement.

Murray's basketballers got off to a bad start by losing to a strong Rochester five. Losses to Red Wing and Edina followed. Two quick victories over Breck came next. Murray then began its conference slate against Central. The Minutemen were highly favored to subdue Murray, but they had to play nearly perfect ball to win 48-40.

The men ot Coach George Rose got on the winning trail as they beat Monroe 37-36, on Chuck Massie's last second drive-in. Wilson was next in a lively contest which the Pilots won 43-32, as center Milt Craighead bagged 22 points. The team was on a winning streak as they beat Washington 52-39. The game with Hum- boldt, a thriller, came to a climax as Chuck Massie goaled at the gun, and then he added a tree throw when the game was over. This gave Murray ci 43-42 victory. The Pilots were under a great handicap in the Harding game because their high-scoring center, Milt Craighead, was lost to the team because ot a sprained ankle. Murray, however, won 47-44, as John Sandquist, Dick Schoon- over, and Chuck Massie all hit in the double tigures. This was now a record tor a team that wasn't supposed to win a single game. Next came the crucial battle with Johnson tor the third place. Johnson's height, and the cold shooting ot the Pilots, gave Johnson an easy 56-44 victory. Murray's inability to score at field goal at- temps was the primary cause ot its showing against the Governors. A similar situation held true in the first round ot playotts when the Pilots were cold at the tree throw line. They lost to Washington 56-4l. blow that whistle!

Starting a new regime under the wing of Mr. Bernard Broderick, the Pilots finished second in the conference standings and won the consolation in the Region IV playoffs. The squad started out fast, winning its first four games. Then the Pilots faltered against Humboldt and Harding thus ending the season with a record of 6 wins, one loss, and -one tie and missing the championship by two points. Seven players received recognition for their fine play. Dan Ullyot, Don Mil- ton, Leon Goodrich, and Jim Niessen gained All- City honors while Buz Grove, Jim Norton, and Don Treichel received honorable mention. Two comparatively soft games enabled the puck- sters to ease into the conference lead. Wilson couIdn't keep up with the Pilots who hounded the puck the whole game. Tw-o goals in the second period clinched the game for Murray. Murray outclassed Central in skating and stick- handling for their second win on two goals in the first period and one goal in the third period. The Buz Grove grits his teeth and charges in for the rebound. Tom Wahman, .lohnson goalie, has iust stopped a shot and attempts to prevent Grove from getting his stick on the puck. A Johnson player in the background is com- ing in to help Wahman clear the puck. Page forty-two murray's hockey team J y y Pilot's next two games were with two powerful teams, Washington and Johnson. Murray recovered tirst on a fighting play by Buz Grove who hit the puck and then slid in with it into the cage. The Prexies couldn't get a goal back and Murray clinched it on a good shot by Dan Ullyot. Murray was up for Johnson and they knocked the defending State Champs oft with a great game of heads-up hockey. Don Milton scored on a rebound from Jim Niessen in the Hrst period and then Niessen scored two goals in the third to add up the total.

With few returning lettermen, the Pilots were not strong enough to battle the conference teams. Clark Smith held the number one singles spot with Bill Miller, Dick Witte, Gordon Tripp, and Tony Andersen all fighting off for the second and third places. Don Robinson and Dave Norden combined with these to comprise the doubles teams.

The Murray golf squad moved a step nearer the city championship, building a sound squad and ending the season with a record of five wins and four defeats. What started out to be a first division team was hurt by the inelegibility of Dan Wegleitner, number one golfer, for most of the season. Johnson and Central gave Murray the only decisive losses.

Early in the fall one found the girls playing soc- cer, after a strenuous day of school. Horseback riding was also tops, and all the G.A.A. members co-operated to make this sport a success because Betty Biorndahl, sports head, contracted polio and was not able to be with the group. Drifting along, yet always busy, the girls enioyed the winter sports that added to the thrills and laugh- ter of those who venture with chance. Skiing, basket- ball, bowling, swimming, badminton and tumbling were excellent relaxation and helped the girls gain perfection and skill. As the saying goes, "practice makes perfect," and spring kept all the girls busy playing baseball and learning the tricks and strategy of hitting the ball so they could play some big games. Another spring sport that the G.A.A, members indulged in was table tennis. Over seventy-tive girls signed up for this sport. This activity gave all the members a chance Page Hfty to earn some points for the school letter award or All-City award. Not all of the year was spent in collecting points and in play. Social interests also were a part of the program. The girls helped with the homecoming dance and button selling. They joined the "lvl" club in sponsoring the annual G.A.A.-"lvl" Club banquet at the Midway Young Men's Christian Association. The group also gave the St. Pat's Day dance. Mrs. Patricia Fritsche, adviser, again gave her excellent guidance and counsel to all, and the G.A.A. closed another successful year. Officers were: presi- dent, Judy Piper, vice president, Carla Nordly, sec- retary, Judy Jensen, recording secretary, Denise Ver- brugghen, treasurer, Jean McCurdy. thrills 'n spills "Full speed -look out ahead!" scream Pat Thistle and Luella Quammen, as they ride bicycles up the hill to complete their exercise for the day.

This was The year of The big change when The Student Council, under its new director, Mr. Reno Rossini, met one hour each day To discuss procedures and problems. The results have been several new innovations. A permanent HxTure was the new pay Telephone in The hall near The auditorium. Students iwith The nec- essary dimei have access To This convenience aT any Time. Another addition was Murray's firsT student directory, a Tall under- taking.

One of the biggest thrills came in the tall when The Murcurie, the school paper, received from Quill and Scroll's head- quarters at Northwestern University, the coveted Gallup Award. In early December Juliann Rasmussen, president, conducted an initiation at which the largest group in the local chap- ter's history became members. The event was held at the Teachers' Federation rooms. The new year found the Library Club and Quill and Scroll combining to hear former students Marjorie Wacklin and Russell Priclcett speak about their visit to Yugoslavia under SPAN. ln late February, the group gathered at an informal session to review the so- ciety's history and beginnings at Mur- ray.

Murray's library has a new look thanks to the rehabilitation program - and the Library Club. While artisans added the new fluorescent lights, painted the walls, and retinished the furniture, the members of Library Club voted to pay for the new venetian blinds that give both comfort and charm to this "center" of the school. The sixty-six members, under the excellent guid- ance of Miss Marion Gratz, have experienced a year of hard work, enioyment, and satisfaction.

Between times, the Library Club members held formal meetings, and enjoyed informal moments, too. One fall highlight was the informal initiation of new members. Annual Book Week became a combination of work and pleasure. The theme, "Explore Books", gave the group's members an opportunity to display original- ity in assembling the exhibit of new books. The stu- dents of all English classes had an opportunity to explore the new selections and to vote on the books to be purchased for the library. Parents, faculty, and invited guests enjoyed the annual Book Week Tea sponsored by the juniors of the organization. The Library Club and Quill and Scroll held a joint meeting in December to hear two alumni tell about their experiences in Yugoslavia under SPAN. March was an especially significant month as the annual Library Club banquet was held at the Uni- versity of Minnesota Cafeteria with Mr. Ralph Hopp as guest speaker. Seniors received the gold L.C. pins for their efforts of the past years. Satisfaction is experienced by all members as they realize that they have contributed another worth- while chapter to the history of Murray's oldest or- ganization -The Library Club.

The club's first social func- tion was a spaghetti dinner planned and served by a committee of expert club cooks. "Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly," sang the girls as they prepared for the Christmas Holly Hop. With laughing face and spark- ling eyes Santa's helper, Norman Johnson, presented all at the hop with candy canes. Service is the goal for the "strictly-for-the- girls" organization. They made Christmas favors for the wee ones at the Children's Hospital during one of their meetings. They do much of this type of work for other shut-ins at ditterent holiday times. Whether one swims like a fish or like a rock, she can have a gay time at a Y-Teens splash party. An hour of enioyment during January was spent by the girls at the new Midway "Y". Like every other organization, a club must have money in order to function. The Y-Teen group sold pom-poms for the home- coming game. For Easter, chocolate cream eggs seemed to hit the spot with the students. With the very able help of the new Y-Teen adviser, Miss Donna Edlund, the club had a delightful year.

Typing, mime- ographing, and taking dictation were among the tasks performed by these "personal secretaries." Field trips were also on the schedule as the ever busy Cadettes visited the Burroughs Adding Ma- chine Company, the Bell Telephone Company, and the Farmers Grain Terminal. At these concerns they became familiar with many new business techniques. The Yuletide season found the group busily preparing a luncheon. Faculty members were guests of honor and a luscious dessert was served amid festive Christmas deco- rations. To bring the new year in gaily, Business Cadettes presented the movie "Peggy" in January. This was their only money making proi- ect. Springtime brought the annual alumni dinner, held at the Wom- en's City Club. Past and present Cadettes were invited. Several of the graduate members gave short speeches on the experiences they have had in the business world. Miss Joy Johnson, National Secretary of the Year, was the guest speaker.
