"THESE CHANGING YEARS"
Co-editors-Corol Johnson, Elizabeth McDowell
Business Manager-Michael Holdclwcly
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.
All These and many more evenTs and happenings mesh inTo The
paTTern of "These Changing Years" recapTured here in picTure
and sTory by The PiloT STaFF of l954.

Coorelation of school subjects is a natural part of
Murray's program. 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.

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.
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.
Below left, Miss Eleanor Steelsmith, school accountant,
PTA treasurer, and teacher of typing and bookkeeping,
consults with Mrs. Lloyd Ullyot of the Murray PTA, con-
cerning the new furniture and decorations for the
teachers' lounge. 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.
WhaT goes on here? So inTeresTed are These sporTs-
minded insTrucTors ThaT They gladly help in The flooding
of The hockey rink. Mr. Bernard Broderick, cenTer, has a
primary reason as he is Murray's hockey menTor as well
as a machine shop Teacher. Mr. Reno Rossini, lefT, guides
The STudenT Council and coaches The varsiTy fooTball
squad. Mr. George Bergup, afhlefic direcTor and wood-

Left below, the world passes in review! 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.

year when they held the J.S. in
early May. Chairmen included Kath-
leen Isaacs, refreshments, Sandra
Nelson, entertainment, Geraldine

Peter Christensen, decorations.
it's great to be ci junior
Having reached the three quarter mark in their high
school journey, the class of '55 can look back proudly.
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. The preparation and anticipation
proved worthwhile as this big evening finally came,
and guests "danced the night away."
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.
Debonair and gay are the Junior

Everywhere you look, you will find the eager, up-and-coming junior high
groups enjoying every day to the fullest and supporting all school activities
one-hundred per cent. Seniors sometimes look in wonderment as they observe
the pep and vitality displayed by seventh and eighth graders. The older group
wonders if "These Changing Years" have slowed them down.
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. After a hope-
ful fall practice under new Coach Reno Rossini, the
team's manpower was thinned by the loss of three
players before the opener. An exciting 27 yard pass

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.

Hobrough scored Murray's only tally.
Humboldt's Indians nipped Murray in the closing
seconds with a pass interception which went for a TD.

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
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
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-

Murray's aggressive rebounder, Jim Landis, goes high
in the air with Paul Chapman of Humboldt for this
rebound in the Humboldt game. Also waiting for the
ball are Humboldt's Gutzman, Murray's Dick Schoonover
and Milt Craighead, and a towering Indian, Mike
Alewine. The Pilots won this tension-filled game by
the narrowest of margins, a single point, 43-42.
Here's Jim Landis, the center of attraction once again.
Paul Chapman of Humboldt is trying to make a basket,
bu: Jim has a different idea. This was but one of
many line defensive plays of the game. Those in position
for the ball in this picture are Dick Schoonover, Chuck
Massie, and Milt Craighead all of the Murray quint as
well as Mike Alewine of Humboldt.
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
scrappy Pilots were in this one all the way.
During the holidays, the bucketeers traveled
to Willmar and Orono. The Pilots lost both of
the games, the first to a strong Willmar team.
Orono scored an upset as they won.

Trainers a real scare as they held Mechanic
to a Q-point lead at the halt. 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.

In this action-packed shot taken during the Murray-Wilson game, one
has a sample of the keen competition existing between the schools. The
two boys grappling for this loose ball are Chuck Massie of Murray and

So close but yet so far sums up the Murray hockey
season for i953-54. 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

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.

"lf you want to be specific-G.A.A. girls are
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
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.

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. The hard

Combining social interests and service, the
Y-Teens holds a very important place in the
school's activities. 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-

do much of this type of work for other
shut-ins at ditterent holiday times.

"Tramp, tramp, tramp." lt's not the army moving in on
us- only the Band practicing the fundamentals of march-
ing in early September..
By the time football was the chief attraction on crisp
autumn evenings, the Band, in snappy uniforms, and led
by "easy-to-look-at" maiorettes, took to the gridiron be-
tween halves and displayed very classy maneuvers and
gave forth with lively tunes. On the sidelines it played the
Murray song to help cheer the eleven on the field.
Nor did the marching group stop when winter's chill
struck the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes. Showing the stuff
of pioneer ancestors, the Band members spent many below-
zero mornings drilling on the hockey rink as they executed
their formations on skates. The hard work paid off when
the group performed at hockey games, including the Re-
gional play-offs, and the State Hockey Tournament held
in late February.
This Murray Band prides itself on its civic mindedness.
In the early fall the group gave a concert in down-town

Drive. When Murray played host to the Employer-Em-

Photography over the years has a fascinating and interesting history. Imagine the
photographer of the early 1900's even dreaming of taking a picture from an airplane.
Today's photographers are not satisfied with just a picture. The skilled artist of the
camera aims to reproduce a perfect likeness with a proper balance of light and shadow.
No studio has worked more consistantly to better the advancement of modern photo-
graphy than GOLLINGS, the official photographers of the Murray Pilot for many years.
Their purpose and aim is to continue to give satisfactory and efficient service, and to
continue to keep pace with the future improvements in the photographic field.

Senior Parents Relive
Parents have evidence of "These Changing Years." This picture appeared in the l949 Pilot, a yearbook
that commemorated the Territorial Centennial of Minnesota.
Here present seniors, then seventh graders, posed as students in the little red school house. From left to
right are Margaret McNamara. Seated are Marilyn Nelson, Carol Mulroy, and Ruth Immer. Standing and
pulling Carol's braids, are Daniel Hill and Charles Brookins. Jerry Hughes takes a clipper of water from
the pail held by Phillip Nelson.
