NDER the guiding hand of Mrs. Wettleson and Mr. Sheets, the class advisors, the sophomore class com-
pleted a highly successful year. -1
In the "Un Cluh already are four sophomore boys of whom great things are to be expected in the future in
the way of sports.
Great interest was taken in athletics among the girls, tennis, ping-pong, and golf seemed to be top-ranking.
In the Glee Clulfs presentation, K'The Mikado,,.the class had the distinction of furnishing a lead and an
understudy, as well as many members of the chorus.
Through the efforts of the president and secretary, the class had many Hne parties. At the home of Elaine
Halstead, a very enjoyable scavenger hunt was given. Later a ski party was held at Eatonls Ranch. This was,
perhaps, more painful for some, but just as much fun.
ln May the class had a pow-wow at Kelley's Farm. This was the final party of an especially active and
successful social season.
This year the fine class spirit has made the school, "Watch the soph's go byf,

T the beginning of the year, the ninth gmde welcomed some gt irty new students to the class. The class
now has seventy-six members.
Both boys and girls were interested in sports. All the boys were out for intra-mural football. Carl Cum-
mins won his letter playing in the high school games, Iohn Donovan and Carl Cummins won places on the
second team in basketball and the other boys were in an intra-mural tournament. Some boys entered wrestling
meets. Spring quarter attracted the bays to baseball and track. The girls swam, played basketball, tennis, and
golf, while a few girls were members of the tumbling team that performed at the carnival.
Ninth graders taking a language belonged to the French, German, or Latin Club.
Students who had musical talents joined the Music Club, others band or orchestra, and the rest Glee Club.
Some members of the class worked with puppets inlthe Puppet Club.
Many of the boys joined the newly formed Hi-Y Club, others did a small business with the Camera Club.
The girls were all active in the Iunior High Girls' Club, giving a Sunlight which was a great success. A
Mothers' Tea was given and enjoyed by everyone.
Mr. Bergren was very helpful in all activities.

HILE they have been very busy getting acquainted in a new school, learning how to work in the unified
curriculum, and coming into contact with such new subjects as science and shop, members of the
seventh grade have still found time to enter into a number of school activities.
One activity which especially interested members was the production of a puppet show, 'iRomeo and
Iuliet," for which students constructed the stage, lighting, etc. This was done in connection with the Puppet
Club. Other members of the class have taken part in intra-mural athletics, music, and other activities.

HERE were many features to make this year's K'Breeze,' an outstanding one. Successful editorial cam-
paigns Were waged for a typing class for U Highites, a school carnival, and one for safe driving. A new
headline schedule featuring ragged heads was perfected, greatly adding to the appearance of the paper. Stu-
dents enjoyed reading the series of interviews by Anne Cullen and Iean Levichg they laughed with Helgeborg
Bjornsdatter QRosemary Iemnej in her column of comment on school affairs, they learned with the aid of
Willo' The Whisper, Whose identity remains secret, what was going on 'gbehind the headlines" at U. High. A
book column, a column of 'AFadaboutsl' and a series by guest columnists made the feature page an interesting
one. Besides all this, this year's "Breeze,' is the first one in several years to "break even" Financially. That they
have produced a good "BreeZe,' and kept it "out of the red" are two things of which this year's staff is very
proud. The "Breeze" received a first class honor rating in the National Scholastic Press Association judging.

HE University High School Senate this year, in order to have a better representation of the student body
increased its membership by selecting one student from each ofthe recognized clubs. This increased the
membership from eight to eighteen.
The Senate s onsored the annual Homecomin dance, which was one ofthe outstandin I social events of
P S is
the year. It also planned and took charge ot two lunch rooms. In these lunch rooms milk and orangeade were
sold to the students.
This yearrfor the first time the Senate sent three representatives to the convention of the Northwest Feder-
ation of Student Councils, which was held in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
The Senate has been unusually successful this year in accomplishing its tasks and in upholding the stand-
ards set by former Senates.

Dragoman was first organized in 1931 for the purpose of promoting the ideals of the school. The group
has no power of action, but many school projects arise from the monthly discussion meetings ofthe group.
These meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at homes of the members.
A formal initiation banquet is held every fall quarter, at which time the new members are presented with
keys and officially become Dragomen. Elected this year were: seniors, Art Anderson, Reid Fellows, Iack Gaver,
and lack White, juniors, Dick Barton, Vincent Erickson, George Geist, Iames Little, and Art Seder. Elected
in their junior year were: Richard Van Bergen, Arthur McNee, Donald Reilly, Grandel Iones, and Iohn

CME is an honorary society for iunior and senior girls who have been outstanding in character, leader-
ship, and service to the school during their high school years.
Girls who qualified for membership this year were: seniors, Merodie Anderson, Phyllis Anderson,
Patricia Garrison, Iane McGough, Lorraine Brachen, Helen Breneman, Lorraine Chase, Iean Hanson, Rose-
mary Iemne, Phyllis Marshall, Ianet Mogilner, and Caryl Iohnsong juniors, Nancy Lee Behlke and Iean
Because ofthe dilhculty the Acmeans met in choosing new members, it was decided that some sort of
election system should be formed. Mrs. Wettleson and Miss Bovee entertained in the home economics room
where this problem was discussed. The outcome of this meeting was a point system on which each prospec-
tive member will be graded. Points are given for activities and personality.
One of the high spots of the year was a hobby dinner at the home of Ruth Firestone. Each girl was sup-
posed to dress to represent a hobby. Another event was a steak-fry at Hidden Falls.
The annual formal initiation and alumnae banquet was held at the St. Paul Womenls City Club in April.
Susanne Geist, lean Robbins, Virginia Mickel, and Nancy Lee Behlke were the speakers.

UILL and Scroll is officially the National Honor Society for high school journalists. Members are elected
either as juniors or seniors for work on publications, with an added scholarship requirement. U. Highs
group, the Charles Boardman Chapter, was organized six years ago. Since then members have enjoyed the
fun-provoking meetings of the club.
Quill and Scroll went on the air this year for the first time. Members presented a Fifteen-minute safety
broadcast over station WCCO. The broadcast was written entirely by members, and produced by them with
the aid of Iunior speech classes.
Membership, unusually large this year, includes Phyllis Anderson, Phyllis Marshall, Eleanore Godbout
Iane McGough, Art Seder, Alex Leighton, Robert Karatz, Lorraine Chase, Lorraine Bracken, Rosemary
Iemne, Dick Van Bergen, Nancy Lee Behlke, Anne Cullen, Anne Barnett, and Ianet Mogilner.
Monthly evening meetings were held at members, homes. Besides working on the radio project and the
traditional Quill and Scroll initiation, speakers were heard. They included such people as Miss Florence
Lehman, who presents a radio-interview hour, Mrs. Margaret Harding, of the University Press, and Mrs.
Edwin Ford, who admitted that she, like many others, was writing a novel.

The Boys, "U" Club
President - - RICHARD VAN BERCEN
Vice-President - - ARTHUR SEDER
Sccrezury - - GRANDE1. IONES
Advisor - MR. I. E. Ccnris
NE of the most versatile and vivacious groups of students at University High School is the Boys, UU"
Club. During the past year the club has influenced and been responsible for many worth while proj-
ects and accomplishments in school athletics. Mr. Curtis, the advisor of the club from the first to the present
time, is quoted as saying that the members of the organization are from the "cream of the crop."
A glance back over the past season's athletic records will indicate that one of the prime purposes of the
Boys' "U" Club, that of arousing interest in athletic contests, has been well achieved. Among the other pur-
poses of the club was the desire to encourage a feeling of camaraderie among the members. This desire was
chiefly attained by the monthly dinners meetings, at which time the reports of committees were made, and
business transacted. In the way of social activities the f'U', Club sponsored the highly successful Nite Club
at the All-School Carnival, and gave a dinner dance late in the Spring Quarter.
The membership of the "U" Club is composed of boys who have won a major sports letter for the par-
ticipation in track, football, basketball, or swimming at U. High. These requirements promote all-round
good fellowship among the active and athletically-minded boys of the school.
It may be well said that the MUN Club has just completed one of the most successful seasons since its
founding. This has no doubt been accomplished through the untiring efforts of the club's friend and leader,
Mr. lames E. Curtis.

HE Latin Club was organized during the fall quarter and has progressed very well since then. The
meetings have been held twice every quarter with interesting and educational entertainment. Picture
slides of the 'LV0yages of Aeneas" were shown at one meeting. The club gave a Roman banquet on May
5th at the Minnesota Union and food was served in true Roman style. Professor Marbury B. Ogle, head of
the Latin Department at the University was the guest speaker.
The club dues are fifty cents or fifty cookies. The cookies have served a double purpose: to stave off star-
vation in the morning Latin classes and to earn money for the club. The proceeds are being used to pur-
chase some slides for the school. Last year, before the club was organized, the Latin classes earned enough
money to buy the Roman Life Charts in Room 112.
The purpose of the club is to promote an interest in Latin and to encourage the students to continue the
study of Latin beyond the hrst or second years.

HE French Club is one of the newest of the school clubs, organized only this year. Its purpose is to stim-
ulate interest in France. Any senior high school student who is taking one year of French is entitled to
become a member.
The club's First party was a Christmas party in the French fashion. Each guest Was asked to remove
his shoe in order to receive his gift in his "sabot.', The junior high French students presented a playlet, and
the party ended with the singing of French carols.
The French Club's concession at the County Fair was called the "Boulevards of Parisf, The show, com-
plete with apache dancers, torch singers, and a fan dancer, turned out to be a great success from the stand-
point of both amusement and money making.
Most of the money which the club made came from the sale of carameled apples during the fall and win-
ter qllZl1'IC1'S. The money made this way is to buy a gift for future French clubs in U. High.

GREAT deal of interest in the Dramatic Club has been exhibited this year by the students. Many
new members were admitted after demonstrating their acting ability in tryouts. There are now
almost sixty students in the Dramatic Club.
The high point in the club's program of the year was its annual play production. This year the junior
high group presented "Hot Biscuitsn while the senior high club presented two onefact plays, "Sparkin' U and
"The First Dress Suit."
The constant aim of the club this year has been to establish correct parliamentary procedure during the
meetings, hoping to raise its standard as well as to accomplish more during meetings. The club has adopted
its own constitution and elected a parliamentarian to assist the president in carrying on the business of the
Meetings were held twice a quarter: skits or original performances were given by the members. The
club was fortunate this year in having Miss Wolfe as advisor. Because of her experience in dramatic work,
she was able to give the club many excellent suggestions and do line work in directing the plays.

INCE its organization in 1927 the Library Board has functioned as an integral part of U. High activities.
Compiling bibliographies, helping students with reference questions, placing books on reserve, charg-
ing books, shelving them, checking attendance, preparing new books for the shelves, checking files of old
magazines, filing catalog cards, sending out Hne notices, and keeping our records straight-these and a host
of others are the tasks devolving upon the thirty members of the Library Board, tasks which no librarian
could do without their help.
ln addition to their regular routine duties, members of the Library Board have this year given the library
such services as helping with the making of the pamphlet Hle, cooperating in such studies as the one being
made by the University of Chicago on the use of the Encyclopedias, and tabulating information from the
This year the librarians, Miss Torkelsen and Miss Smith, with the help of Mrs. Wettleson, chose the
members of the Board from the list of applicants last fall, considering in this selection scholarship, sincere
desire to help, and the possible value of each person to the library.
With service to U. High the primary purpose of such an organization, the members of the Library
Board have gained much in learning how to use the library, in a thorough familiarity with our books and
magazines, and consequently in achieving a feeling of "at-homenessw in what can be the most attractive room
in any school.

HE Beaux Arts Club is composed of a group of twenty students who are particularly interested in art
and desirous of becoming better educated in art appreciation.
The group, under the supervision of the art instructor, visited the Little Art Gallery of Northrop, where
discussions were held. They also went to the Minneapolis Armory to watch the artists, Mrs. Iemne and Miss
Wylie, at work on frescoes.
Special work done by the club this year was the decorating of all concessions of the County Fair.
Cherrie Koch was the club representative in the Senate while the three standing committees, Member-
ship, Program, and Publicity, were headed by Phyllis Marshall, lane Mcfiough, and Eleanore Godbout.
These committee heads took charge of projects submitted for club entry, plans for entertainment, posters and

NAUGURATED by students at University High School who felt a definite need for some form of activ-
ity for those interested in general music appreciation, the Music Club was organized this year under the
guidance of Mr. Bliss Mapes.
Ruth Kunze, one of the outstanding piano students of the school, was elected president, and under her
leadership a program of meetings was planned which included many interesting speakers from the Univer-
sity oli Minnesota music department, and programs presented by the members themselves.
Because of its newness, the Music Club has not been very active this year, but looks forward to a busy and
interesting program next year.

HE Debate Squad's membership was the largest since debating was introduced at U. High. The debat-
ers rapidly absorbed good speaking technique under the able guidance and supervision of Miss Clara
Vivian, a student teacher in social science. Miss Vivian used the most modern methods in coaching the
group, only one member of which had ever participated in a debate before.
The question chosen by all Minnesota high schools was, "Resolved: That all electric utilities be gov-
ernmentally owned and operatedfl The squad followed the procedure of reading informative material upon
the subject privately and then collectively making a general brief or outline of the case. The debaters quickly
fell into line and from their pro and con opinions upon the question joined either the negative or affirma-
Debaters consisted of Burton Bikle and Alan Hall, who took part in all the U. High negative debates,
Don Reilly, Christian Rondestvedt, Owen Cort, and Arthur Anderson shared in the aflirmative portion of the
The main event which the debaters took part in was the Minneapolis High School Tournament. In
this, Burton Bikle and Alan Hall were defeated by a scant margin by teams that later were victorious in
the Northwest Tournament at Omaha. Don Reilly, U. High,s only veteran debater, and his less experi-
ehced colleague, Arthur Anderson, won against fair opposition. Owen Cort and Christian Rondestvedt,
though they worked hard, ran up against more experienced opponents and were defeated.
All in all, it may be stated that considering its inexperience the squad had a successful season. Although
they had not always won, the general sentiment was that they had gained valuable training and had enjoyed
themselves doing it.

HE Camera Club, though newly organized, is one of the most active clubs in the school. The club
grew from the necessity of having some way of organizing the growing interest in candid cameras.
Last October, a group of students who were interested in photography but who had very little practical knowl-
edge met to discuss and show their paltry knowledge and to try to learn more about photography together.
The club was organized with the expert assistance of Mr. Vaurio, activities became more numerous, and the
club gained momentum. By Ianuary the club membership had tripled, and the club had already equipped
the Physics Laboratory, its meeting place, with a dark room and acquainted the members with the use of it.
Several of the members contributed their photographic apparatus to the club and from the club dues
chemicals and paper were bought which could be used freely by the members.
During the 'lCounty Fairu the club managed a photo studio, where pictures were taken and sold.
The purposes of the Camera Club are to acquaint and educate the members in the use of photographic
equipment, to stimulate interest in taking pictures and in the development of various photographic tech-
niques, and, generally, to enable them to take more interesting and life-like photographs.

HE Gopher Hi-Y was formed this year with Dick Barton, Bob Norris, Wayland Rose, Bill Robinson,
Leonard Lampert, Bob Breidenbach, Roy Mordaunt, and lack May as its charter members. The aim of
the club was to promote more pronounced school spirit. To do this the club drew up a constitution and
then later initiated a few more members who they felt could and would help the club. These members were:
Art Anderson, Bob Barnum, Les Venables, Bob Mann, Bob Lathrop, and Bill Walker. This brought the
total membership to eighteen. The full quota set by the constitution is twenty-five, with the stipulation that
the members are to be willing, capable, and liked by all before being asked to join.
The First social event will long be remembered by those who participated. It was the sleigh ride at
Eaton's ranch, to which guests were invited. Important later activities were the safety drive and distribution
of booklets on the "Next Warn by Alexander Woollcott.

marked improvement over last year's organization. It has increased in membership and in interest. A
violin trio composed of orchestra members entered the state contests in May, receiving a B honor rat-
ing. David Zeff, a member of the orchestra, is also a member of the University of Minnesota Symphony

NDER the able direction of Mr. Rudolph Anfinson, the band this year became one of the really impor-
tant activities at U. High. With approximately ten members reporting for the band last fall, the pros-
pect was not very bright, but with everyone in the band on a membership drive, the band swelled rapidly to
the present high of thirty-two members.
The band gave both the junior and senior high students a chance to see it in action by playing at football
and basketball games and presenting concerts to junior and senior assemblies. On March IO the band gave
a Pop Concert which really was popular. The proceeds of this concert were used to purchase equipment of
which the band was badly in need.
Assisting Mr. Anhnson this year were the two managers, Cunningham Chatham and Iames Kelsey.
Besides the senior band there is a junior band, which is growing in interest and which is training mem-
bers to take the places of seniors in the senior band.

ff ARD luck" was the theme of most of University High's football games. The Little Gophers finished
what might be called a disastrous season without winning a game. In fairness to the team, however,
it may be said that in no game did the opposing team hold a great advantage over U. High. The team fought
hard and was never out of the running, but the occasional touchdown of an opponent cost U. High several vic-
tories. In only one game was it defeated by a decisive score, which proves that the team made up what it
lacked in strength in fighting spirit to hold down its adversaries.
At the beginning of the season the team showed good prospects, hopefulness, and anticipated a good sea-
son. The players carried this spirit with them when they opened their schedule against Stillwater. The start
of the game featured a U. High march down the held for a touchdown, but the fates decreed that this touch-
down be called back for some minor reason. This caused a complete reversal of U. High's form and took some
of their fighting spirit away from them, which eventually meant Stillwater's victory. Perhaps if that touch-
down had been allowed, U. High would have continued to win that game and maybe others. This, however,
is only a theory and we leave it to the team of 1937 to regain U. Highls reputation as a strong football team.

The Season's Record
NIVERSITY HIGH opened its season playing the Stillwater eleven on the Prison City's field. The
Little Gophers started out to make quick work of their opponents but were stopped several times inside
the opponents' ten yard marker. Although U. High outplayed the Prison City eleven they bowed to a I4-o
Still feeling the sting of defeat from the week before, the Little Gophers exhibited a fine brand of foot-
ball against Wayzata and scored a touchdown early in the second period but failed to make the conversion.
The opponents soon scored a counter and succeeded in scoring the extra point, making the score 7-6 and
managing to keep the lead the remainder of the game.
U. High, overconfident, and with no idea of losing to a team which had not defeated them in the past
five seasons, found a much stronger team than they had anticipated. The Excelsior eleven scored three
touchdowns and one conversion to U. High,s single counter and the game ended I9-7 for Excelsior.
The team journeyed to Mound in high hopes but again failed to break its losing streak. The Mound
gridders scored thirteen points in the first half, and during the second half a slight drizzle hindered the
handling of the ball, making it impossible for either team to score, and the game ended I3-O.
The Little Gophers, playing their last home game of the season, were again defeated by a fast stepping
Hopkins team which opened up with two counters and a safety resulting in a 16-o score. Although unable
to score, the home team played a Hne game and had to play the entire second half without the aid of Capt.
MacGibbon who had been injured.
ST. LoUis PARK
Playing in a blinding dirt storm, the gridders were again defeated 25-6. The high point of the game
came in the second quarter with three minutes to play when Van Bergen received a kickoff to run eighty
yards for a touchdown. Neither team was able to score in the second half.
ALL STAR GAME
This year a new custom was inaugurated in the Lake Conference. This consists of a post-season foot-
ball game played between the conference champions and four players from each of the other schools in
the conference. Capt. Iohn MacGibbon, Dick Van Bergen, Art McNee and Bill McKone represented U.
High in this first game, which the "All Starsn won by three touchdowns.

HE 1937 University High basketball team upset all precedents and captured the first Lake Conference
championship the school has ever had. Officially, University High tied with Hopkins, but U. High beat
Hopkins in the District Tournament to win the unofficial playoff for the title. Although losing two con-
ference games, University High enjoyed beating every team in the league twice, for they met and defeated
Excelsior fwho had previously defeated themj, in the sub-district tournament. Led by Captain Iones, one of
the most outstanding players this school has produced, the team swept through its schedule playing consis-
tently good ball, having only one letdown when they were beaten by Excelsior. Unfortunately, however, they
had one bad night in the District meet which meant that they were eliminated, but this did not greatly mar
their Fine record. Next year's squad proves that it will also be a potential factor in the conference race, with
four returning lettermen.
Granny Iones, Captain, and outstanding perform-
er for the U. High basketball team, was chosen on
the all conference team unanimously for the second
time in the same number of years. lones also was
chosen on the all district team.
Art Seder was honored on the conference second

HE loss of many of last year's great track team was severely felt by the 1937 squad. Nevertheless, this
yearls aggregation showed that it had some flne prospects and endeavored to complete successfully a
hard schedule which included Shattuck, Carleton Interscholastic, District and Regional, and others. The
team did well in 'scoring 18 points in the Metropolitan Meet where Ward Patton finished second only to South
High's record-breaking Tigue in the 440 yard run. The relay team also scored a fourth, along with Art
Seder's tie for the same position in the pole vault.
The team had the District and Regional titles to defend, along with the half mile relay title at Carleton,
which they have won for the last three years.
The team placed its hopes on the excellent coaching of Mr. Curtis and the following boys:

season. Captain Fellows, seniors, Kelly, Nichols, Harns, Rhodes, juniors, Bray and Merrill, and sopho-
mores, Wietholl, Abbott, Stewart, Towle and Klein gave U. High much to rejoice over and much to antici-
pate by way of stellar performances.
The team had good balance, won from some of the Twin Cities' best teams, and proudly lost to stronger
adversaries. Only six men are lost through graduation. The team established a tradition beginning this year.
At the close of the season the graduating seniors take a last plunge for U. High and then-throw in the coach.

IRLS at University High School can look back on
many interesting hours spent in sports during the
year 1936-37. Under the direction of Miss Elizabeth
Zimmerli an extensive program was worked out to suit
the inclinations of every girl, and since gym was again
a required subject, those inclinations were many and
In the fall quarter basketball played the important
role. Two classes were held during the fourth hour
every Monday and Thursday, one for beginners and
one for more experienced players. Games between Uni-
versity High and Derham Hall, played both' in the
Women's Gym and in the gymnasium of the Hall, added interest to this sport. Despite the fact that U. High
players were usually the vanquished they thoroughly enjoyed the games and hope that basketball games be-
tween U. High and Derham Hall will become an annual custom.
Tap dancing, swimming, indoor archery, and basketball were the classes attended in the winter quarter,
with special interest shown in tap dancing. These classes, while not new to U. High, were very enjoyable and
served to stimulate interest in gym, which naturally lags during the winter quarter. Also, the basketball
games with Derham Hall were continued to the end of the quarter.
With spring came an even more varied program of athletic activities, more classes were held outside as the
weather became warmer. Golf, tennis, archery, and swimming were the classes attended. The swimming
class was held under the direction of Miss Zimmerli, who conducted the class for those girls who were inex-
perienced swimmers. This was a new class and met with great success. An advanced golf group under Mr.
Stan Larson waited until spring so that they could start playing on the University course, while a beginners'
class practiced in the gym and on the field behind it before playing actual games.
During the winter quarter the Girls' U Club became very active. Much interest was stimulated by a point
system for membership. Arrangements were made so that girls could spend free hours playing ping-pong,
badminton, basketball, and roller skating. Besides getting enjoyment from time spent this way, points toward
the 25 needed for U Club membership were gained. Many girls soon became members, and the club grew in
size and popularity. A tennis tournament was sponsored by the club during the spring quarter, and a tennis
breakfast held in May was well attended.
This year, sports for girls at University High School have been more interesting than ever before. The
department has developed remarkably and has the sincere interst and support of all U. High girls.

held at the University of Minnesota during the winter quarter, U. High placed fourth. Whitmore
scored a second in his weight and Bill McKone placed third in the heavyweight class.
ESTLING was introduced into the state high school league this year. In the first state wrestling meet,
U. High was also represented by a golf team this ear. W lk P ' h L' l
kopf, and George Shaw were the leaders in this sport.

GAIN this year Mr. Curtis arranged a fine intra-mural athletic program for boys who did not wish to
engage in varsity competition. However, the interest aroused over some of the sports was so great that
varsity men entered, too, playing side by side with the others. A
In the fall, touch football headlined the activities. In the winter, it was basketball, which was climaxed
by a championship game between the best fourth and seventh hour teams. The fourth hour team won the
championship. Intramural kittenball teams were arranged in the spring quarter gym classes, and a round
robin tournament was played.
The purpose of intra-mural activities is to give every boy a chance to play in the game he likes best. This
purpose was fulfilled to a high degree this year, which means chances for continuing this type of program
next year are very good.
