Why does a stu-
dent keep a notebook? To re-
cord what he has seen, heard, and
done, and be able to recall it by looking
through his notebook. That is why we, the
seniors ot l94I, have made this notebook tor
II the students to keep: to help them remem-
ber what they have seen, heard, and done
during the school year.
The school year is full of happenings worth
remembering. We hope that this BlSBll.A
will help you recall your school lite: your
friends and classes, your inter-
ests and accomplishments.

To the underclassmen this Bisbila will bring back memories ot this school year
which is typical and yet in many ways so ditterent trom other years. But espe-
cially to the seniors, who are leaving U. t-tigh's halls with teelings ot gladness
mingled with regret, this boolc will be meaningtul.
Lite at U. High, day atter day, weelr atter weelc, it completely recorded would
till volumes. Even one day ot a typical student would malce an interesting story.
It would bring a chuclcle here and sympathy there along with many memories,
tor to each student the typical story would recall his own days at U. High. The
unexpected daily excitements that malce lite so much tun, the clubs' activities,
the tootball games, the noon hour dances, and the special school tunctions
all spell "U. High" to the students.
So, seniors, in tuture years read this looolc and remember, tor this Bisbila is to
commemorate your lite at U. High tor both you and the underclassmen. By
them and the 'faculty-you, the class ot l94i, will not be torgotten.

Mr. William S. Carlson, Director
70 the Sembrs of 1941
University l-ligh School salutes you as you leave
her halls. She has given you of her best, and we
hope that she has been successtul in passing to
you something ot her imperishable spirit. That
you may want to pursue serious scholarship as an
avocation, it not as a vocation, is a wish we otter
you most sincerely. Be not deceived by the lure
ot little, cheap. immediate rewards which you
may detect in the immediate future. You will tind
that an honest job, honestly done, is essential to
tull selt-respect. But, in seelcing your lite worlc, do
not tail to tix your mind on the more distant hori-
zon, on the things ot larger import, the things
which will attect the weltare ot your generation.
and ot your country. ln a tew short years you will
be ready to meet the great adventure ot lite.
We trust that you will meet it as men and women
-loyal, honorable, unatraid.

Mr. James E. Curtis, Assistant Director
The gravity ot the present world crisis has made
our faculty especially critical ot our new curricu-
lum in light ot the unpredictable problems our
graduates will face. Formal education in itselt is
snot enough. We have constantly endeavored to
extend the program ot U. High beyond the so
called traditional. The success ot our undertalcs
ings as a secondary school can not be measured
by aims and objectives as we state them, but
rather in your success as graduates in meeting the
problems ot the tuture. We hope that your high
school preparation has been stimulating and
challenging, and will serve as a solid foundation
tor the varying programs you are now to tollow.
Congratulations and best wishes.

The organization that lays down the laws at Uni-
versity High School is the student governing
body, commonly known as the Senate. The rep-
resentatives trom each ot the classes meet dur-
ing the lunch hour to discuss the various student
problems which come up during the year. This
year's president, elected by the entire student
body, was John Geist. He was heartily backed
up by John Marvin, vice-president: Marjorie Bo-
berg, secretary: and Fred Clapp, treasurer.
With Mr. Virgil Walker, the adviser, keeping his
caretul eye on them, the worthy senators have
many accomplishments to their credit this year.
University High School is now in complete con-
trol ot the Cateteria in Shevlin Hall during the
lunch hour, so the Senate rolled up its sleeves and
planned recreational activities tor the students.
Dancing to the music ot a phonograph was the
most popular ot those furnished. The ettorts ot
the Senate to present a successful Homecoming
Dance were well rewarded, tor the annual event
was much appreciated. The Senate "chambers"
were tilled with an air ot the North Woods and
the clash of axes as the members pondered over
the advice they gave as the advisory board to
the Carnival Board in planning Paul Bunyan's Fun
Frolic. A new law was passed and enforced by
the Senate when it was announced that each club
and organization must have an otticial charter
given out with the approval ot the Senate com-
mittee. The plan attempts to recognize only the
clubs and organizations which are beneticial to
the school and eliminates those which are ot no

ANNA MAY NIEMANN
Coming to U. High from Oak Hall
during her senior year, Ann made
quite a place for herself with her
friendly smile and studious ways.
She belonged to the German Club
and the Science Club, and at Oak
Hall was in the Owl Club and the
Janie was U. High's famous note-
book artist. Classes were sometimes
disrupted by a crowd swarming
around to catch a glimpse of her
latest masterpiece. She was also
active in the French Club. Jack's
been the important man in her life
for two years now.
When the squad went out on the
football field, Big Jim claims he
always put "Barrel" in first to scare
the other team. John received mer-

and was a member of Boys' U. Club,
German, Chess, and Science Clubs,
and Library Board.
Frayda has carved a niche for her-
self in the U. High hall of fame.

At high school in Williston, North
Dakota, Dick made a good record
in his sophomore and junior years.
U. High agreed he was really on
the beam. He plays a "mean"
cornet, and keeps his scholastic
average well above par. Chess Club,
basketball, and presiding as treas-
urer of Model Airplane Club took
up Dick's time.
Dick is well known around the Alma
Mater for his talents at the piano,
-boogie-woogie, concert, jazz,
swing-anything you want. He can
beat out! That he has executive
ability is shown by his acting as
advertising manager of the Breeze,
senior and junior class treasurer,
Senate representative, and J. S.

To those persons who have wondered where the
renowned calce that was rattled ott at carnival time
came trom, we now introduce the Latin Club and
its adviser, Miss Eleanor Marlowe. Miss Marlowe's
cakes have become an important tradition at car-
nival time and have bolstered the club's tinances.
A tish-pond sponsored by the Romans at Paul
Bunyan's Fun Frolic was also a benetit.
With the help ot the money made at the carnival
and from club dues, the traditional Latin Club Ban-
quet was held again this year in May. The mem-
bers tried to act as much like authentic Romans
as possible with Roman tood in Roman style. En-
tertainment tor this banquet is traditionally sup-
plied by speeches, movies, or Latin students them-

who takes Latin automatically is a member ot the
club, which entitles him to come to the tourth
hour meetings and to wear a Latin Club pin.
Programs on such subjects as Roman houses, Ro-

given at these meetings, and in the regular class

The average personls conversation in German is
usually confined to "Gesundheit!" and "Dante-
shonlfl but the members of the German Club, in-
fluenced by Jaclc Geist, president: Jaclc Wallis,
vice-president: Betty Koalska, secretary-treasurer:
and Miss Lucy Will, adviser, have improved their
powers immensely this year. The purpose of the
club is to foster a feeling of fellowship among the
students enrolled in German and its aim seems to
have been accomplished. Every German student
automatically becomes a member and there are
no dues, which makes the German Club one of the
larger organizations in the school.
The all important money situation was solved this
year by the sale of hot dogs and confetti at Paul
Bunyan's Fun Frolic. The Carnivalites were in the
mood for the treasury showed a marlced profit.

Most of the proceeds of the German Club's busi-
ness deals are used for the scholarships which are
awarded each year at Commencement. The princi-
pal, members of the personnel department, and
Fraulein Will decide on the students to whom the
awards are to be given on the basis of exceptional
ability in German and leadership in school activi-
ties. Each scholarship amounts to fifteen dollars, or
one quarters tuition at U. l-ligh, and it is required
that the student talce German while enjoying the
scholarship. Chief Justice John P. Devaney has
made the awards official by affixing the documents
with the seal of the State of Minnesota.
The German Club also sponsors annually a large
get-together in the form of a party or picnic. This
is open to all U. l-ligh students and is famous for
its good food and enjoyable entertainment.

All ot U. l'iigh's aspiring Sarah Bernhardts and
John Barrymores head straight tor the Dramatic
Club where they hope that maybe a talent scout
might see them and send them ott to stardom.
Seriously, however, the University High School
Dramatic Club is beneticial to students who wish
to develop their dramatic abilities. Tryouts are
held at the beginning ot each year, and the results
allow only those who show some dramatic ability
to become members.
The numerous meetings held during the year were
devoted mainly to business and entertainment tur-
nished by the members themselves. The otiicers
elected this year were: Carol Lowe, president: Mar-
jorie Dumas, vice-president: and John Marvin, seca
retary-treasurer. Adviser Voellcer was able to give
the club members many excellent suggestions and
did tine workin directing the plays. Several times
this year the Dramatic Club presented one act

and at the Carnival, club members entertained stua
dents and patrons with a one act play, The Rock
The high point ot the Club's program ot the year
was the production ot its annual play, Hay Fever,
a comedy by Noel Coward: this event took place
toward the end ot the tall quarter. To allow a
greater number ot the members to participate in
the biggest production ot the year, the play had
ditterent casts on the two nights that it was given.
Playing important roles were Gwendolyn Cerney,
John Menz, Marjorie Dumas, Bill Appel, Sally Da-
vidson, James l-lenly, Connie Matovitz, Marilyn
Stoven, Jim Christensen, Isabel l-lyams, Jane Parks,
Corinne Holt, Shirley Henderson. and Phyllis Fire-
stone. The Dramatic Club was well repaid tor its

Hay Fever was received.

Starting the l94O football season on Friday the
I3th, the Little Gophers were halted by a stubborn
Murray Team 6-O. After a hard fought first quar-
ter, Bob Lee of Murray recovered a fumble behind
the U. High goal line for a touchdown in the second
quarter. The try for the extra point was partially
blocked, and the score remained at 6-O. Later in
the second half, the Little Gophers battled to within
ten yards of a touchdown, but here their long drive
Scoring two counters early in the game, the Parkers
defeated U. High I3-O. Jack Beaulieu of Park
chalked up all I3 pointers. When few seconds re-
mained in the first half a pass from Frank Booth
to Bud Shannon connected to place the pigskin on
Park's five yard marker: however, the gun spoiled
any chance of a Little Gopher score. For U. High
Dick Ohrbeck, Dutch Geist, and Captain Bob Sage
starred on defense, while Fred McNee's punting also
University High School was defeated by a small but
shifty Excelsior team with a score of I6-O. Excelsior
ran up their first points on a fumble behind the Ma-
roon and Gold goal line. The ball was recovered by
Fred McNee, but Excelsior was given two points.
The Little Gophers showed power, but not enough
to stop the shifty plays of the opposition, who soon
added their first touchdown to make the score 9-O
at the end of the quarter. The scoring ended with
an Excelsior touchdown and a true conversion in the
third quarter bringing the points to I6-O.
Smashing and plunging at the Robbinsdale gridders,
U. High played their best football this season
against the Lake District Champs for l94O. It was
necessary for the Robbins to come from behind in
the last few minutes of play to tie the ball game at
6-6. The Little Gophers returned the kick off, only
to lose it on the Robbinsdale five yard line. The ball
see-sawed in a nip and tuck battle until in the sec-
ond half, when Captain Bob Sage blocked a punt
and Fred McNee fell on the pigskin for the only
U. High tally. In the few remaining minutes ofthe
game, Robbinsdale pushed over the Maroon and
Gold line making the tie 6-6.
Led by Bud Shannon. U. High trampled a weak
Wayzata squad 26-6 in a contest played under the
lights at Northrop Field. Frank Booth broke loose
and streaked 25 yards for the first U. High counter.
The conversion split the poles and the score stood
at 7-O. A pass combination from Shannon to Geist
clicked for the second U. High touchdown. Way-
zata turned the tables and snared their only touch-
down through a pass attack. After a series of power
plays, Shannon raced 25 yards for another U. High
tally. With about three minutes left to play, Fred
Clapp, the Little Gopher center, intercepted a pass
and galloped 65 yards for the final touchdown.
In spite of a strong start in the first half of the Hopkins
game, the Little Gophers were weakened by many injuries
and overpowered by Hopkin's superior strength and shitty
halfback, Bud Dunn. Except for a startling kick-off return for
a ninety yard touchdown by Bud Shannon, U. High half-
back, the Little Gophers were the trailers in a score 33-6.
Because of injuries, McNee was unable to perform, and
Shannon was eliminated for the rest of the season.
Although the score of the last game of the season was
O-O, the Little Gophers gained twice the yardage of their
opponents and netted ten first downs to Mound's four. The
team-mates fought their hardest but were held within the
goal lines. Roy Pieper battered through the Mound offense.
and Jerry Friedell smashed through the Mound defense.
This was the last University High School football game for
thirteen graduating seniors. The season ended with a total
of one win, two ties, and four losses.
Hats off to a scrappy Little Gopher team.

At the start ot the season, the U. High cagers, weak-
ened by the loss ot Judd Welliver and by a lack ot re-
serves, lost three straight games to Murray, Hopkins,
and Excelsior with scores ot 35-l9, 42-2l, and 37-35.
Led by Captain Bob Spratka and Center Jack Wallis,
the Little Gophers gained their lost momentum and de-
teated Wayzata and Mound 32-27 and 23-I9.
A polished Park team won over U. High, 36-24, and
Robbinsdale, atter trailing up to the third quarter,
nosed out the Little Gophers, 39-37. Junior Skoglund led
Hopkins to victory, 42-29. Atter winning over Way-
zata 3l-28, U. l-lights sharpshooters lost to Mound in
the last seconds ot the game, 34-32,
Stretch Wallis became the scoring
champion ot the conference by buck-
eting 26 points against Excelsior out ot
a 42-23 victory. Park tipped U. High
29-26, and in the tinal game ot the
season, the Little Gopher quint de-
ieated the Robbinsdale cagers 36-29.
U. Highs record stood at tive wins
and seven losses to tie Mound tor
tourth place. The tirst game in the sub-
district was against Robbinsdale. U,
High built up an early lead and the
game ended with a score ot 29-27. In
the district tournament, Chaska elimi-
nated the Little Gophers trom turther
competition by a 30-20 score.
Jack Wallis, ace center ot the buck-
eteers. played brilliant ball and
scored high throughout the season.
Besides breaking the Lake Conterence
scoring record, he was rewarded with
center position on the all-conference
team. Captain Bobby Spratka was a
very ettective detenseman and also a high scorer. A
scrappy player, Bud Shannon is noted tor his accuracy
in tree throws and baskets, and Big Bill Parrish, chosen
tor sportsmanship award by the team, is remembered
tor his long tield goals 'irom the middle ot the tloor. The
only returning letterman trom the tirst team was Tony
Diehl, who was a steady player at the torward position.
Fred Clapp and Dick Rieke, though unable to play tor
a good part ot the season should also be accredited
with good work. Other lettermen who turned in good
records were Don Maclsae and Ed Briggs.

l'laving the reputation ot swimming against the tough-
est teams in the state, the Little Gopher swimmers
splashed through this year in a highly successtul tash-
ion. Opening the season in a close meet with Roches-
ter, one ot the strongest teams in southern Minnesota,
the U. l-ligh mermen lost by two points. Two meets
with Shattuclc tollowed, but the Shads continued to
hold their eternal finx over the U. l-ligh men. To assure
victory against Blalce School, Don Fraser, John Merrill,
Bill Emmons, Jim Bray, and Diclc Whitmore captured
tirsts in their events tor a 36-30 lead. ln the St. Thomas
meet, the Little Gophers won 7 ot the 8 tirsts, The
visiting Austin team outswam our mermen by a small
margin in spite ot Brayls deteat ot their star diver.
The highlight ot the season was the deteat ot Marshall,
a top squad in the Minneapolis High School League,
and winner in the City Meet. Co-captains Don Fraser
and John Merrill were outstanding, Fraser winning the
50 and l00 yard dashes and Merrill the l00 yard back-
strolce. Both teams were tast and lacking in second
place winners: however, U. l-ligh won by a score ot
39 to 36.
ln the Northwest Meet, U. l-ligh qualitied an unprece-
dented number ot men tor the tinals. Jim Bray, placing
third, is going to be a strong contender tor the state
championship next year. Diclc Whitmore copped a fifth
in the breaststrolre, and Merrill and
Fraser toolc sixths in their respective
events. The medley relay team placed
tourth and established a new school
record tor that event with the time

Opening their outdoor season against Southwest High
School, U. High was held to a 43-43 tie. ln the Mound
relays, U. High made its usual strong showing as Parrish, Bud
Shannon, Frank Booth, Dick Whitmore and Dick Brown led
the U. High runners, winning the medley and the mile re'
lays. ln deteating Marshall and Murray in a relay meet, the
Little Gophers picked Ott three tirsts and a second out ot
tour events. The Little Gopher cindermen won over St. Thom-
as 53-Sl, with McNee, Brown, Parrish and the relay team
capturing six tirst places.
Again this season the tracksters journeyed to Northtield to
take part in the Carleton lnvitational Track Meet. Winning
several events in their division, the Little Gophers tinished
high up in comparison to other schools in their division. The
district meet tollowed the Carleton Meet, and U. High sent
its usual large squad to compete. Placing several
men in the district, U. High had a good representa-
tion in the regional track meet.
Mr. Bill Schallmo coached this year's squad and
turned in a tine job as he moulded an inexperienced
team into a powertul aggregation.
U. High placed its hopes in the tollowing men:
l00 yard dash: Clark, Henly, Captain Parrish. 220
yard dash: Clark, Shannon, Captain Parrish. 440

Major letters were given to the outstanding members
ot the wrestling team tor the tirst time. The matmen
were captained by wiry Judd Whitmore, a ninth
grader, who placed third in the State Meet last season
in the I25 pound division. Bob Cranston was the out-
standing member ot this year's team: he wrestled in
seven meets and won six ot them, the seventh being
a draw with the state champ. Bob also placed third
in the State Meet, in the 95 pound division.
Also displaying good work were Dick Breidenbach in
the l35 pound class, Bob Sage as a heavyweight,
Dick Ohrbeck in the l65 pound class, and George
Randolph in the I I5 pound class. During the season
the grapplers participated in seven meets with Lake
Conterence teams, winning two, tying one, and losing
This year, the Ll. High golt team, coached by Dr. Wil-
liam S. Carlson, placed well above average in the an-
nual district play otis, with Bill Parrish again leading
the team as high point man. Besides the district
matches the golters played Murray, Blake, Wayzata,
St. Thomas, St. Louis Park, and Hopkins.
That golt is a coming sport at U. High is indicated by
the largest turnout in the history ot the school-ten
men took an active part during the season.
Other regulars on the team were Howard Johnson,
Ed Briggs, Don MacRae, and John Amberg.
Throughout a schedule including matches with Rob-
binsdale, Blake, St. Paul Central, and Cretin, the U.
High tennis team played a hard, good game. Several
ot the tellows were entered in the annual district play-
otfs. With Mr. Castleberry as coach, and John Geist
the only veteran trom the I94O season, an unusually
large number ot men were out tor tennis.
Many underclassmen got experience in this season's
play that should insure a strong net team next year.

"Kildow's Killer Dillers" copped the champion-
ship trom l'Amberg's l-lamburgersl' in the contest
between two six-man tootball teams last tall. Ai-
though Ambergs six won the tirst tive, the Killer
Dillers came trom behind to win the remaining
seven games and attain the championship.
Coached by Bob Fitch ot the University ot Minne-
sota, this year's junior high-ites who went out tor
tootball had a well planned and executed program
to talce part in. The squad ot eighteen tellows was
split into two teams, nine on a team. Practices
were held three atternoons a weelc trom twosthirty
to three-thirty. lnter-squad games were played on
the other atternoons.

Small letters were given to the junior high-ites.
Thanks to the worlc ot Mr. Dave Bartelma and his statt ot stu-
dent teachers, this year's junior high and tenth grade gym
classes have reached a new high in the variety ot sports ot-
During the tall quarter activities included tootball, archery,
baseball, and swimming. All boys had a chance to talce part
in each ot these. Classes in physical education met three
times per weelc tor one hour a day.
Squash, wrestling, handball, swimming, traclc, and baseball
lcept the U. l-ligh boys busy during the winter quarter. Regu-
lar contests were held in each sport and intramural meets
were arranged between the grades.
Spring quarter brought training in outside traclc meets, volley
ball, and archery. lnterclass games were played in an atmos-
phere ot lceen rivalry, and the season ended with a combined
traclc meet which included all gym classes.

Under a new constitution the Girls' U. Club reorganized
in the tall ot I94O with the aim ot promoting the ath-
letic interest oi the girls ot the senior high. The otlicers
elected tor this year were Marjorie Anderson, president:
Marion l-larvey, vice-president: Jane Parks, treasurer:
and Sally Dunn, secretary.
Unlike the Boysl U. Club. the girls do not become mem-
bers by earning a letter in some sport. This year a gen-
eral quiz on athletics was given to all the girls who ap-
plied tor membership. This quiz and the athletic inter-
ests shown by the girls were the basis tor admitting mem-
bers. Seventeen new members trom the tenth, eleventh,
and tweltth grades inclusive were admitted, and a weel:
ot initiation climaxed by a formal initiation followed the
announcement ot those to be admitted.
Miss Eloise Jaeger was the club's adviser. With the help
ot Miss Jaeger arrangements were made so the girls
could use the women's gym tor various sports. During
the spring quarter the warmer weather brought about
more activities. Horseback riding at Breck School was
one activity that was requested by several members.
All ot the girls were greatly interested in bowling at the
new Union. Tennis and baseball were other outdoor
sports that were popular with the girls.
Something new-something entirely ditlerent was
established this year as a part ot the tive-day gym
program. This was the coeducational gym pro-
One day a week the seventh and eighth grades,
the freshmen, and the sophomore boys and girls
met together in Shevlin Cateteria tor an hour ot
Games and dancing were pleasant diversions from
the regular gym routine, as were badminton in
, Cooke Hall and bowling in the new Unian.
61715 in Action
This year, more than ever before, the U. High girls have had wonderful
opportunities tor a varied gym program: tor, instead ot the regular three-
day-a-week physical education program, the girls have had gym tive days
Each grade, seventh through tenth, was under the supervision ot either
Miss Eloise Jaeger or Miss Beatrice Baird. On three days ot the week the
girls took physical education. Two ot these days were used tor class instruc-
tion inthe various games that were played. The third day ot physical edu-
cation initiated something new, the intramural day. The classes were
divided into teams, and regular tournament games were played in such
sports as speedball, volley ball, and baseball. During this intramural day
the swimming classes played water games and made water formations.
The tenth graders participated in a ritle tournament during the spring
Another day ot the week was devoted to health education, which was
another new teature ot this year's program. Instead ot using the gym itselt,
the teacher and class would meet in a regular room where discussions on
health in relation to gym work were held. During the tall quarter posture
was discussed, and in relation to this a better carriage contest was spon-
sored. Sally Jesness was awarded a trophy tor having the best posture
while Shirley Thorne, Patricia Hardy, Jean Hersey, and Marilyn Stern
placed second, third, fourth, and fifth respectively. Time was also spent
in these discussions on the functional questions ot physical education and
on studying the physical examination.
The fifth day ot the week the girls and the boys got together in Shevlin
Cafeteria tor some relaxation and tun. Dancing and games were the high-
lights ot this hour, while badminton and bowling were ottered outside ot
Shevlin. Coeducational recreation had never been a part ot the school
program betore this year.
Because the many tacilities ot the Women's Gym are open to U. High
students, the activities ot physical education classes were varied. Speed-
ball and volley ball were played during the tall quarter and basketball and
swimming during the winter quarter. In the spring the junior highites played
baseball and had rhythm work. The tenth graders were ottered archery,
tennis, and ritlery.
During the spring quarter the gym tacilities were ottered to junior and
senior girls who do not usually take physical education. Swimming and
modern dancing were the activities that were open to juniors and seniors
who had a seventh hour study period.
