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. 7m5le af Qcwlleffph For the faculty we sweat and slave ..... . 5 l-lardworkers, comics, and great kids-our seniors . .

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. 7' " """ 2' v F L+ Y-Q,s,g,l :Li bfbagwa.

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. Wzllzam S. QUJLQLW4 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.

Senate 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 Page Ten 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 value. This year tor the tirst time University High was host to a convention ot the Northwest Federation ot Student Councils. The Senate entertained the delegates with a dance held at the Coffman Memorial Union. qwdhh-am dawnm- Mzymzwzzww- Tfffgffifif X X N Q ji 1 Xj FXQZJT fy-4-' X?

RICHARD NOLAND 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. Committeeman. ANN O'ROURKE Annie, as she is known in these parts, is one of U. High's late comers. Arriving from Portland, Oregon in her junior year, she has made a great record. She's a riot to work with.

Everyone had such a good time that the tenth graders- plan to have the same kind ot entertainment every year. Miss Margaret Day, the amiable adviser to the class, says that she thinks it a good idea.

The entertainment included a troupe ot beautitul can-can dancers, Sampson and l-lalstead in their tamous Conga number, and, as a special attraction, a dramatization ot 'lSalomie and the Lion." ln this skit, l.eo, the raging lion, gracetully succumbed to the charms ot the heroic and mastertul l-lindu Prince. Miss Mary Jo Walker, the club's adviser, doesn't rec- ommend that you try this unless you're an old hand at training wild animals. At their bi-monthly meetings, the club had many interesting programs-tor example, a talk on South America given by a student teacher ot Spanish who had spent many years in Panama. With these varied activities the U. l-ligh French students balanced their year's program ot work, study, and tun. TOP: 4th ROW: Firestone, Fesler, C. Brown, Cole, R. Rydell, J. Henly, N.

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- selves, and the banquet is always regarded as a big atlair. One ot the time honored institutions ot U. l-ligh, the Latin Club, was started to present to the stua dents phases ot the language and ot Roman lite that weren't included in the classworlc. Every person 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- man children, parties and dress in old Rome were given at these meetings, and in the regular class periods. Sometimes Roman games or games built on the use ot Latin words were played by club members. Phyllis Jesness as president, Diclc Noland as vice- president, Betty Kuehn as secretary, and Florence Bouthilet as treasurer guided the programs and ac- tivities ot the club 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. TOP: 4th ROW: K. Sexton, Colman, Erick- son, Learned, R.

HAY FEVER SNAPS 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 g .,, Behind ffre Foofhylrfs plays as entertainment at the all-school assemblies, and at the Carnival, club members entertained stua dents and patrons with a one act play, The Rock Bench. 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 ettorts by the attendance and applause with which Hay Fever was received. rage Th irtv-s n Page Thirty-eight GLEE CLUB-TOP: 3rd ROW: J.

The leads, Jean Ferree, Mary Dunn, and Cal Greer, assisted by the rest ot the choir, caught the spirit ot the waltz so well that they presented one ot the most successtul operettas that U. l-ligh has had in years. A Christmas testival concert at the Music Audi- torium highlighted the tall activities ot the group in which l-lerman Seibert is president and Patricia Robbins is vice-president.

'A H l Forty-tour Mhefeen-Forty Season 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 was stopped. 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 stood out. 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.

Swlkfzers Come Tfzroa fl 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 Page Forty-six 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. 3rd ROW: Waters fcoachj, Bray, R. Whitmore, Pratt fmgni. Znd ROW: Merrill fco-capt.J, Allen, Turner, J.

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 l:29.6.

High placed tenth out ot 25 schools, with Parrish and Brown qualitying tor the tinals, and Parrish leaping 20' 7" to capture a tourth in the broads jump. 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 Page Forty-fight 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.

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 tour. Divot Dgggers 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. Nefmen 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.

Page Forty n ne 1 For Future Years "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. Boys' Gym fldsses Page Fitty Larry Clarlc earned the scoring honors tor the seas son, and Gilbert Friedell and Ralph Nelson were the best passers. Best receivers were Friedell, Bill Kildow, Wright, and Bob Cranston: best bloclcers: Don Sage, Guy Cleveland, Orrin Stone, and Doug Foothg best centers: l-loward Barrows, John Am- berg, and Cyrus Brown: best taclclers: Bob Nelson, Ralph Nelson, and George Randolph: best run- ners: Ralph Nelson, Bob Cranston and Qrrin Stone: and the best messer uppers were Bart Baker, Diclc Johnson, and Stuart Reedy. The equipment was all turnished by the players, except shoulder pads, which the school turnished. 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- tered. 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.

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, Coedacafiona! Recreaflbn 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- glarrl. 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 tun. Games and dancing were pleasant diversions from the regular gym routine, as were badminton in , Cooke Hall and bowling in the new Unian. Page Fittyeon-5 Page Fifty-two 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 a week. 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 quarter. 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. fgmfmwccvmwikefvm-Zke ZfLwgAmecfcQea0Qcfay-Zine aww fxfifigf iff? x lf '- X of? ccjlqgkb CQ Pk, M 6 QQ f xx-X' , Nfl N X I Round Me flock 8:35. 9:30.
