Murray l-ligh School, Glee
True 6lUq'lll'7ll'U consists in
saying all that is necessary,
and nothing but what is mfr:-
Latin Club, French Club.
It all began when you were tive-this education whirl,
Betore you could catch your breath, they sent you ott to school:
First kindergarten, then grade school, next came Junior High,
And last ot all, but never least, your days at dear U. High-
Where math and English, history too, became your knowledge wide.
You had much tun, you made tast triends, you studied on the side.
And ne'er torget that daily rush, that daily noon yard dash,
Our winning team, those pep tests, and being late to class.
Recall those many dreaded hours when grades were given out
And it, by chance, you got all "Ks" how you would laugh and shout.
'Twas all grand Tun-the very best-you'd never tind the likeg
You'll ne'er torget those glorious days when you went to old U. High.
Back in seventh grade your worries were but tew:
Physics, French and Chemistry had yet to bother you.
Seventh grade the print does read, but time has altered that:
This Senior Class ot 'Forty are Seventh Graders ot the past.
Time marched on, as did this class-no longer do we see
The small, mischievous class ot yore, the group they used to be.
They are smart and clever, a pertect class-no better could be tound
They've studied hard and as reward their knowledge knows no bound.

books and magazines.
The Carnival Board is the general committee in charge ot the carnival. It is their
duty to make all decisions regarding the event and to be general overseers ot the
carnival. Their purpose is to make each carnival a bigger and better one. The board
chose 'lWahoo's Wigwam" as the theme ot the l94O carnival.
Barney Saunders and Eugene Engelbert were co-chairmen ot the carnival, Jane
Goodsill headed the concession committee, Dave Coddon was in charge ot publicity,
and John Marvin was business manager. Mr. Joseph Daoust and Mr. Virgil Walker were

When a team tinishes a seven-game season without a defeat and with only I3 points scored
against them, they indeed have accomplished a feat, especially a team that tor years has been in the
cellar ot Lake Conference play. This was the story ot one ot the best ot University High School teams.
Probably the fastest, smartest and hardest-hitting team that the Lake Conference has seen in a
long while, the Maroon and Gold powerhouse oi l939 set an unprecedented string ot smashing, dazzling
victories. Captained by Warren Briggs and Bob l-lubbell, the team swept to wins over Murray l-ligh ot
St. Paul, l-lopkins, St. Louis Park, Excelsior, Robbinsdale, Wayzata and Mound.
As tar as all-conterence players are concerned. the University l-ligh team easily dominated the
choices. Dick Reed, a transfer student from Stillwater, playing his tirst year ot football at U. l-ligh,
was given the quarterback post on this mythical team: Carl "Buzz" Cummins, stellar fullback and veteran
ot 'lour years ot varsity play, easily garnered the tullback position: and Warren Briggs, captain and spark-
plug oi the championship team, was a unanimous choice tor the center post.
On the alternate all-conterence team, Paul Coates, deadly passer and shitty runner, was named
lett haltbackq Fred Collatz, southpaw passer and lett side runner, won the right haltback position, and
Ed Kauter, bruising, tough, dependable player, easily was named to the right end position.

UNIVERSITY HIGH 26, MURRAY 0
The Little Gopher eleven opened their I939 season
by trampling over a green Murray High team, 26-O.
Led by Ed Kaufer who scored the first Maroon and
Gold touchdown from the ten-yard line, the Curtis-
men went forward on September I5 to accomplish
their first decisive victory in many years.
Leading by only 6-O at the end of the first period,
the I939 powerhouse quickly pushed over touch-
downs in the form of plunges by Carl Cummins, one
from the five yard line, the other from the ten, and
a pass from Fred Collatz to Eugene Engelbert. Dick
Reed accounted for one of the points after touch-
down, by an accurate place-kick and Carl Cummins
split the crossbars with a drop kick to complete the I
The Little Gophers found no trouble in downing the Murray team, although they did meet some tough luck.
This was in the form of a broken leg of co-captain Bob Hubbell, who was consequently lost for nearly the entire season.
UNIVERSITY HIGH 7, ROBBINSDALE 0
The first conference game was waged when the Little Gophers met Robbinsdale, on September 22. Robbinsdale,
new to the Lake Conference this year, put up a staunch battle and for three quarters held the future champions score-
less. But the Maroon and Gold squad couldn't be stopped and in the last period started a drive from the U. High
ten-yard line which terminated only when Paul Coates streaked across the goal line from the Robbins twenty-yard
stripe. Dick Reeds perfect marksmanship with the place-kick scored the extra point.
The Maroon and Gold team clearly outplayed their suburban rival, scoring nine first downs while limiting the Rob-
binsdale team to only six. The game was highlighted by the dazzling sprints of Clarence Buckley, Robbins' ace. Many
a qualm was felt by the Little Gophers when this fleet-footed halfback was given the ball.
Besides Coates and Reed on the Maroon and Gold lineup, Buzz Cummins, shifted to fullback after Hubbells' ac-
cident, and Ed Kaufer stood out. Cummins' driving plunges and Ed Kaufer's steady defense play were a large asset in
this first conference victory.
UNIVERSITY HIGH 25, EXCELSIOR 6
University High really branded itself as conference champion material, when they defeated a highly-touted
Excelsior team 25-6 on September 29. The game was played under the arcs on the Hopkins field.
The Little Gophers wasted little time in securing their first touchdown. Ered Collatz, on an off-tackle smash, went
fifteen yards for the initial score. However this lead was short-lived, for a few minutes later, Eritz Uran, speedy Excel-
sior back, raced fifty yards for a touchdown.
In the second period, the Maroon and Gold warriors
opened a long scoring drive which was capped by a line
buck by Buzz Cummins.
Paul Coates, playing his usual stellar game, put the con-
test on ice when he galloped across the goal line from the
Tonka ten-yard line.
Early in the final stanza, the Little Gophers unfurled their
passing attack in the form of a 20-yard aerial bombardment
from Ered Collatz to Dick Reed, which resulted in a touch-
down. Reeds conversion was good and the Curtismen went
off the field a 25-6 winner.
UNIVERSITY HIGH 7, HOPKINS 0
On Eriday, October 6, the University High gridders did
that which for 28 straight games had failed to be done. They
defeated Hopkins.At their home field, the Hopkins team met
a determined University High team, which capitalized on a
first period score and emerged the victor by a 7-O score.
The game had been under way only a few minutes, when
Paul Coates threw a twenty yard pass to Jim Palmer who
advanced the ball to the Hopkins twenty-five yard mark. On
the next play, Ered Collatz, on a reverse from Coates, dodged
and plunged to the two-yard line before he was grounded by
a host of Hopkins tacklers. Buzz Cummins then plunged over
the goal line for the lone Maroon and Gold tally.
Again in the second period, the Little Gophers
threatened. Fred Collatz, on an oti-tackle smash,
raced thirty yards to the Hopkins twenty. However,
the play was called back and the hopes tor a second
For the remainder ot the game it was a nip and
tuck battle, with the Little Gophers, however, domi-
nating the play.
UNIVERSITY HIGH 20, WAYZATA 0
Faced by the pass combination ot Paul Coates to
Dick Reed, the Little Gopher gridders hung up their
iitth straight win when they trampled over a hard-
tighting Wayzata team, 20-0, on Friday, October I3.
Late in the tirst period, atter the Curtismen had
driven to the Minnetonkans 30 yard mark, Buzz Cum-
mins, on an ott-tackle smash, gallaped over the goal
line. The score, however, was nullitied because ot
tripping, and the Little Gophers tound themselves
back on the Wayzata 40 yard line. Nevertheless, on the next play, Paul Coates started around his own right end,
taded slightly, and threw a pass to Dick Reed who caught it in the end zone. Reeds placement was good and the
Little Gophers assumed a seven point lead.
In the second period, atter a series ot pass plays and dashes by Fred Collatz and Ed Kauter had advanced the
ball to the three yard line, Carl 'IBuzz'I Cummins exploded over lett guard tor the score. Again Reeds place kick split
Again in the third period the Coates to Reed combination caught the Wayzata secondary napping. From the
Wayzata 20 yard line, Coates taded back and tossed a looping pass to Reed who merely raised his arms and caught
the ball in the end zone.
UNIVERSITY HIGH 26, MOUND 7
Led by the driving runs ot Buzz Cummins, the University High tootball team accomplished their titth straight
conterence victory and their sixth straight win, by trouncing a highly touted Mound eleven on Northrop Field, 26-7.
The game was played on Friday, Qctober IQ.
The tirst score was the result ot a sustained drive by the Maroon and Gold team immediately atter the kick-Ott,
capped by a blasting plunge by tullback Cummins. Cummins then dropped back and split the uprights with a
A tew minutes later, Ed Kauter made it thirteen points on an ott-tackle play trom the Mound ten yard line.
Reeds attempted place kick was wide.
Shortly atter the third period got under way, Buzz Cummins picked up a blocked kick and atter stitt-arming one
Mound player raced sixty yards tor a touchdown.
Versatile Cummins then shitted to the end post and early
in the tourth period snared a pass trom Southpaw Bobby
Spratka and crossed the goal line standing up.
UNIVERSITY HIGH 27, SAINT LOUIS PARK O
In the tinal game ot the season and what might have
been the championship game had not Park been deteated
by Excelsior the previous week, the Maroon and Gold power-
house terminated an undeteated season when they de-
teated St. Louis Park on Friday, October 27th, at Northrop
Shortly atter the Curtismen had gained possession ot
the ball in the tirst period, Buzz Cummins broke away on
an ott-tackle play and raced torty yards tor a touchdown.
Park, however, tightened her detense and although the Uni-
versity High team advanced to the tive yard line, they were
unable to tally.
Atter the halt it was a dihterent story, tor the Little
Gophers put on a sustained drive tor 70 yards, ending with
a tour yard plunge by Cummins.
With the ball on the Parkers' 30 yard line at the begin-
ning ot the tourth period, Fred Collatz threw a I5 yard pass
to Dick Reed, who crossed the goal line standing up. Later
Cummins, atter completing a seven yard gain tlipped a lat-
eral to Ed Kauter, who raced 50 yards tor the tinal score ot
the most successtul University High season.

Although this year's Maroon and Gold basketball team tailed to live up to the high standards set
by previous U. High teams in the won and lost columns, it was a team that was hard to beat and
always provided spectators with a good game. The team displayed championship ball at many times
during the season and it it had not been tor a tew fourth quarter let downs, the Little Gophers would
have been on the top in Lake Conterence circles.
As in previous years, the team was under the guidance ot Mr. .lames E. Curtis and was consequently
well coached: however it lacked that spark at opportune times in the game to be ot championship cali-
ber. The team was well balanced with plenty ot height, speed and natural ability: but they were
too erratic and atter a midseason spurt that marked them as potential champs, they tell into their early

For the tirst time in quite a while, the team had a large
amount ot 'lcrowd drawingl' power. As a result, an all time
attendance record was set. This record was a decided ina
crease over previous years and consequently showed a marked'
climb ot basketball popularity.
Despite the tact that only one letterman will return to
strengthen next yearls team, chances ot success will be tairly
good. Bobby Spratka, the returning letterman, will be abetted
by such stalwarts ot the MB" squad as lack Wallis, Fred Clapp,
Bud Shannon, Tony Diehl, and lltiig Billll Parrish.

Although the Little Gopher Swimmers did not win but one meet all season, this year's team was
possibly the best all-around team in years. Two University High records were set this year. John Merrill
blasted his own IOO yard back stroke mark when he hung up the time ot I:O9.5 in the Washburn meet.
Don Fraser, transferring his talents to the 220 yard tree style, smashed Captain Saunders' record ot
2:42.l made last year, when he splashed across the line in 2:33 in the Marshall meet. Fraser, possibly
the second lastest 220 swimmer in the state, was torced out ot the State Meet because ot a severe cold:
however, the team is pinning its hopes on him to come through next year and thus be the tirst Uni-
versity High swimmer to quality tor that meet since Bill Peisch did so in l934. The highlight ot the
season was ot course the U. High deteat ot Blake at the Minneapolis Club pool. This was the only meet
all season in which the Mermen were at tull strength. Another high point ot the year was their near
upset ot Marshall. Marshall finished their season in third place in the Minneapolis City league and
taced the Little Gophers with the odds heavily in their tavor. They were certainly surprised when they
discovered University High swimmers defeating them in near-
ly every event. However the Little Gopher's weakness in the
relay gave Marshall the edge by three points. In the Cretin
Meet, University High was heavily favored to win, and they
would have, had not a talse start in the Medley Relay caused
the disqualitication ot the Little Gopher team, atter they had
easily won that event.
As tar as next year's team is concerned, the Little Gophers
should have an exceptional team, as only two lettermen, Bob
Merrill and Barney Saunders, will be lost to the squad through

With only four lettermen returning from last year's team, the Little Gopher tracksters found them-
selves ata decided disadvantage at the beginning of the season. However, through the faithful etforts of
Mr. Kerr, the new track coach, the team developed into a strong combination as the season progressed.
The Metropolitan Meet and a practice meet with Murray gave many of the squad members much-needed
ln the first dual meet of the season against Stillwater, the track squad encountered especially strong
competition in the weight events and consequently lost by several points. Again in the Cretin meet the
Little Gophers lost out to an unusually strong rival by a margin of three or four points.
The team began to hit its stride in the Mound Relays, as Hubbell and Reed placed in the field
events while the mile relay team of Rhodes, Parrish, Whitmore, and Shannon copped a trophy in that
event. A U. High medley relay team narrowly missed victory in that event after Shannon, Rhodes, and
Parrish had gained a substantial lead in the earlier part of the race.
District competition proved strong again this year as each of the teams provided talent in some par-
ticular event. For the University High squad, Parrish, Rhodes, Reinfrank,
Bauman, Hubbell, Reed, and Saunders were outstanding in the District track
meet, garnering the majority of the points that the Little Gophers managed
to win. Parrish and Rhodes again carried the Maroon and Gold colors at the
regional meet at Litchfield.
As usual, the tracksters traveled to Northfield to participate in the
Carleton Invitational Track and Field meet. Mr. Kerr continued his policy of
entering as many boys as possible so as to afford the juniors and sopho-
mores added competitive experience. The complete squad was comprised
of the following irunners:

Although this year's Maroon and Gold wrestling team did not quite live up to the standards set in the
three previous years ot wrestling, it did unveil a heretofore unlcnown grappler. This wrestler was Judd
Whitmore, an eighth grader, who placed third in his class in the Minnesota State Meet and was conse-
quently awarded the first major letter ever won by a wrestler.
The main aim of the tennis team this year has been to reorganize the sport at University l'ligh and
to put tennis back in an important position as tar as athletics are concerned.
Coached by Mr. Castleberry, the racqueteers devoted most ot the season to inter-squad play. Roger
McGee, Keith Koentopp, John Geist, and John Gilmore proved themselves to be the outstanding players
during the course ot play between the l94O squad members.
FRONT ROW: Baker, Townsend, Brown. SECOND ROW: Gilmore, Adler, Henly, Geist, Koentopp. BACK ROW: Abbott, Wallis, Reed.
ln their first few matches, the University High golfers did not exhibit their previous
championship talent and were consequently badly defeated by both Blalce and St.
Thomas. However the potential ability is there and if the boys "find themselves" by
the time of the District Meet, they may carry home the trophy for the third straight
The golfers who toolc part in the majority of the competitive matches were Bill
Parrish, Eugene Engelbert, John Donovan, Joe Dobson, and Howard Johnson. Other
members of the divot-squad included Ed Briggs, Paul Coates, John Amberg, Grant
Rhodes, and Fred Collatz. The team was directed and coached by Dr. Carlson, who was
ably assisted by the head caddy and waterboy, Buzz Cummins.
Again this year the Junior High boys engaged in inter-squad six man games. For the
third year these boys enjoyed this new type of football that is sweeping the smaller
schools. The boys divided into two squads, the Panthers, led by Jim Bray and the Lions,
led by Eddie Briggs.
ln the first two of three Friday afternoon games, the teams were virtually even:
however in the last game, Bray's Lions galloped to a 20-O win over their Panther op-
Coach Donald Castleberry promises a continuation of the six-man sport again next

week the younger students were expected to attend classes in basketball, swimming, bad-
minton, or folk dancing.
During winter quarter two basketball classes, meeting on alternate days, were held. The seventh
grade girls joined the beginners class in which fundamentals were stressed. Reviewing the tirst year's
work and learning more advanced plays occupied the eighth grade class: however, in the third group,
the ninth grade section, actual games were played with advanced material also being taught.
Using both the large and small pools, swimming classes proved popular. One class open only to
junior high girls was compulsory. Fundamentals ot swimming, and important strokes were taught here by
Miss Constance Bovim, Physical Education Instructor in charge ot U. High girls. The other group, also
supervised by Miss Bovim, was purely recreational. lt was open to both junior and senior high girls.
Badminton, 'folk dancing, and golt captured the spotlight during the spring quarter. These teatures
were supplemented by a special horseback riding class, which was sponsored by the Girls' U. Club. Eaton's
Ranch was the scene ot this group's activities.
The entire program was planned mainly tor junior high students. For the majority ot interested
senior high girls the Girls' U. Club otlered varied activities.
Under the direction ot Mr. Dave Bartelma, the new physical education head, this year's boys' gym
program was broadened to include a greater variety ot activities. All the junior and senior high boys
with the exception ot the seniors participated in the intra-mural athletics.
ln the tall quarter, the boys enjoyed the chance ot working outside as they engaged in touch-tootball
games on Northrop Field. This gave those who were not playing in varsity competition the opportunity
ot enjoying tootball. The junior-highites gained valuable experience in fundamentals which will benetit
them on the varsity squad in later years.
The stadium, Cooke Hall, and the tield house provided such sports as handball, badminton, and
basketball during the winter sessions. Atter their instructors had taught them necessary rules and help-
tul fundamentals, the boys were allowed to engage in active games with tellow classmates.
Spring quarter again provided opportunity tor many phases ot intra-mural sports. With eyes toward
tuture varsity runners, Mr. Bartelma planned many classes tor the sole purpose ot giving boys instruction
in track work. From actual scheduled intra-mural meets they gained competitive experience in track. Kit-
tenball games stimulated much interest and excitement among the ditterent junior and senior high classes.
Because only the grades through the sophomore class will be required to take physical education
next year, it will be possible tor the department to tocus even more attention on underclassmen and to
present an even more interesting intra-mural sports program.

When in the course ot high school events it becomes necessary tor members ot one class to dissolve
the scholastic bonds which have connected them with this institution, and to enter, out ot the kindness ot
the taculty's hearts, the various and sundry colleges which a confidential letter to the president and the
good old apple entitle them to enter, a decent respect to the scepticisms ot said protessors and doting
parents requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be selt evident: That all tlunks are created equal: that they are endowed by
their creator with certain inalienable rights among which are the acquisition ot F's, the accumulation ot
poor work slips and the pursuit ot make-up exams. Prudence indeed will dictate that students duly tlunked
will not be passed tor light and transient causes. But when a whole series ot F's and l's stare them in the
tace it is their right and, ot course, their duty to throw ott such evils and to provide bigger and better
apples tor bigger and better polishing. Such has been the earnest endeavor ot the class ot '40, and now
arises the necessity which constrains them to alter their former status at U. l-ligh. The history ot the pres-
ent rules ot U. High has been a history ot repeated advice and warning to promote the eventual gradua-
tion ot said class. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world. They have:
I. Erected a new detention hall and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our members and cut short our
2. Quartered large bodies of teachers among us.
3. Imposed "at the end of the hour" slips on us without our consent.
4. Deprived us in many cases of the benefits of alibis, good excuses, and the use of soft soap.
5. Kept us out of upper halls, unexpectedly locked our lockers, and peered into our occupied cars.
6. Pounced on our 'fellow classmates, shanghied victims in the lower hall to serve terms in detention or made
them hike back to their classes.
ln every stage ot their oppressions we have petitioned tor redress in the most humble terms. Our
repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated late slips-unexcused.
We, theretore, the Class ot '40 ot University I-iigh School, appealing to the taculty and principal ot
said school tor the donation ot our diplomas, do in the name ot heaven and tor the love ot Mike solemnly
publish and declare that we will cram and hope to be tree and independent students: that we are ab-
solved from all obediences and bondage to members ot the ruling stattg that all dictatorial connections
between us and said task masters are, and ot right ought to be, totally dissolved: and that we tree and
independent guinea pigs have tull power to pursue matrimony, use tobacco, skip all U. l-ligh classes, eat
gold tish, and, in short, do all obstreperous things which tree and independent guinea pigs ot right do.
For the support ot our declaration, with a tirm reliance on the protection ot the proverbial apple, we
mutually pledge to the Class ot '4I our old marks, our old papers, and our old protessors.
