Text from Pages 1 - 72 of the 1943 volume:

Zke 1943 B I S B I L A Published by the SENIOR CLASS OF UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTATHE BISBILA IN REALITY, a high school yearbook is just another American custom. It is something that has been published for so long we take it for granted. Yet. this year a high school annual seems to mean much more than ever to American students — truly a part ot America. For that reason we have made the 194.? Hisbila a Hisbila with a victory theme, a theme expressed by the pictures in the V cut. and our dot. dot. dot, dash pictures in the front part of the book. We hope this Hisbila has an even more personal meaning than former ones have had. We hope that when many senior boys have gone into service they will think of this lxxik. We hope that in twenty years members of the present graduating class can take the 1943 Hisbila from their bookcases and the Iwok that was affected by the Second World War. We hope it will bring back many pleasant memories not only to them but also to the seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade classmen. BISBILA STAFF F.di tor-in-Chief.......................

IDOCTOR ANDERSON has been director at University High School tor just two years, but in that time we have come to know him as a man whose judgment we can rely upon. We have found him to In- understanding and sympathetic, always ready to listen to our troubles anti to praise our accomplishments. Our director came to University High School with a tine record of public school experience, scholastic achievement, and successful university teaching. A native of Nebraska. Mr. Anderson has received his advanced degrees from schools in two other states, for in 1937 he took his M. A. degree at the Colorado State (College of Education and a few years later obtained his Ph. D. at our own University of Minnesota. While most directors at University High School have had the task of preparing their students for a future in a peaceful world. Or. Anderson has had the great added burden of getting his students ready for a future in a world now at war. His interest in preparing his students for a post war world is one of the many acts which prove to the students his worthiness as a director. I)k. (I. Lester Anderson Commcmders-ln-Ch'ief JAMES E. CURTIS, assistant director, has long l ccn a favorite with students and faculty alike. In planning an extra-curricular program at U. High, it was his aim to extend it beyond the traditional and during his years as athletic coach he was a favorite with the boys, besides being a wonder at giving them the right spirit and team workmanship. Perhaps he is best remembered by the student body, however, as the annual carnival queen candidate who received more votes than many a U. High glamour girl. Many others will remember him as the psychologist who delected their alibis but always managed to keep on good terms with them. Maybe being a former U. Highite himself accounted for his understanding of tardinesses and the difficulties of getting home-work in on time. His departure for induction into the Navy and training at Columbia University was a shock, for "Big Jim" seemed a part of the very foundation of the school. Although gene from behind his desk, Mr. Curtis is far from forgotten by the students at U. High, who all wish him a successful career in the Navy and arc glad to know that he will return to U. 1 ligh after the war. 6 Mr. James E. CurtisPERSONNEL OEPT.: Mr. Johnion, Mitt Kocpie, Mi. Dugan. General Staff Camp Directors Mr. Willis Dugan, head of the personnel department at University I ligh School, has been a well known figure at U. 1 ligh for several years. The position of hoys' personnel adviser was filled by Walter Johnson until his departure winter quarter for Navy work at Washington, D. C. . . . Miss Gladys Kocpkc, girls' adviser for the second year, left in January for service with the Spars. Miss Kocpke was also adviser for Girls' Club and helped on the Red Cross work turned out by the club during the fall and winter quarters. All-school fingerprinting was one of the many war jobs taken on by the U. High Senate this year, under the ad-visership of James E. Curtis, assistant principal. Other accomplishments of the year included organizing noon-hour recreation (ping-| ong, baseball, etc.), planning the homecoming party, and issuing club charters. The pur-posc of this organization is to find the answer to current school problems. The officers. Marge Bobcrg. president: Ed Briggs, vice-president; Mary Emslic,secretary; Wilson Schmidt, treasurer, were elected by the student lx dy. SENATE—TOP ROW: Friedcll.MeGcc, Anderson. Amberg, L.

Craniton, Emilie.Majors After an absence of a year, Miss Margaret Day was given a hearty welcome back to U. High, not only by her eighth and tenth grade English students, but by the whole school. Miss Day advises the seventh grade. Mr. Robert Carlsen has made many seniors shake because of his strenuous teaching of immortal Shakespeare. Besides this, he is credited with training future Edgar Allen Poes and Emily Dickinsons through his creative writing class, his journalism class, and his position as adviser of the Campus Breeze. Back again this year. Miss Mildred Schmidt teaches English to the seventh and ninth graders. Noted for her scorn of "potboilers,” Miss Bertha 1 landlan passes on her skills in literature and grammar to all cf U. Eligh’s juniors. Miss I landlan also acts as senior class adviser and sponsor of Acme Society. Miss Ixirna Seabury adds her talents to U. I ligh this year as speech teacher, adviser of Dramatic Club and Director of the school’s dramatic productions. Social Studies classes don't occupy all of Mrs. Claude Meridclh’s time because not the least ot her duties concerns advising slaving editors on what's what with the Bishila. "What’s the news today?" is the familiar cry coming from all of Mr. Donald Castleberry’s history anti social studies students. Mr. Castleberry also helps advise the junior class. Entering U. High during mid-fall quarter was Miss Edith West who teaches both junior and senior high social studies classes. Dr. Edgar B. Wesley, editor of many of the social studies textbooks used in U. High, is the head of the school's Social Studies IX-partment. In addition to teaching future scientists at University I ligh School Mr. Morton Keston is a talented musician, who has displayed his abilities at U. High functions. Mr. Clayton Gjcrdc, who teaches science classes, also became boys’ | crsonne! adviser when Mr. Johnson left for the Navy. Mrs. Ethelwynn Moore is the first woman science teacher who has walked down U. I ligh halls for several years. She teaches ninth and tenth grade Biology classes. Miss Eloisc Yaeger and Miss Theda Haganah direct the gym program of the junior high and tenth grade girls. We credit Miss Mcllic Palmer with establishing the school nurse system at University High. After 1937, her first year here. Miss Palmer left U. High and did not return until last fall. In addition to the taking care of student’s ailments, she has helped supervise the I lomc Nurs ing course. Until his departure for naval training Coach Manfred Schrupp kept busy building up our U. High boys through the physical fitness program at the same time he was leading the Little Gophers through hard-fighting football and basketball seasons. ENGLISH DEPT.: Mm Seabury. Mm Schmid .

Her annual Latin Club banquet is looked forward to by all her students. Miss Ellen di Giambattista teaches the future Mademoiselles and Mon sicurs, and Schoritas and Senors at University High School. She is the adviser of the French Club and the Spanish Club. A new addition to the Language Department is Miss Emma Birkmaier who teaches the U. High prodigies to s| eak (ierman and advises the Herman Club. Responsible for the cultivation of the mathematical brains in our junior high is Mr. George McCutcheon, who also assisted in the coaching of the football team. Co-adviser of the junior class, Mrs. I ois k. Turner has added the teaching of pre-flight aviation to her other activities. After the departure of our girls' adviser, Mrs. Turner took over the sponsorship of the Ciirls Club and other duties formerly belonging to Miss Koepke. Another new member of the Math Department is Miss Olive Brine. She was formerly a teacher at the Minnesota Braille School. Miss Prine is adviser of the tenth grade. Besides teaching future housewives, Mrs. McCart inaugurated and instructed several Red Cross courses in the high school during the past year. Also, she helped to plan the mothers’ teas. Mrs. McCart started her teaching as Miss Lenander and surprised us all by entering one day as "Mrs.” Mr. Duard Laging, art instructor, also advised the Camera Club and the Art Directors’ league, which adorned U. High's halls with posters. Each day during the seventh hour. Miss Lillian Bicstcr teaches her students to "play the typewriter” more skillfully. Her class typed much of the copy of the Breezette, and the Bisbila. Music teacher Mr. James Nickerson directed the choir in last year’s Christmas Choral assembly: during the spring quarter he was in charge of the all-school musical. Until March when he left to join the Navy Air Corps. Mr. Carlisle Anderson was head of the industrial Arts department. Indispensable to University High School is Miss Lois I loag. who attends to the general office work of the school in addition to taking care of the school’s finances. Miss Mary Solether, University senior and part-time office assistant at University I ligh School, helps the school run smoothly by taking care of typing, dictation, and the managing of the student activity funds.

High start me misers would Ik- called into military service, hut very few of us thought we would lose so many of our teachers. List September we felt the first effects when we returned to school to find that Messrs. Virgil Walker, Raymond Kchl. (icrald Voclker, and Edwin Carr had left for army posts. Other former faculty members had gone to other positions in civilian life, and we were surprised to find seventeen new teachers. These new teachers adapted themselves quickly and have become a real part of U. High. Yet wc were still to feel more effects of wartime demands, as for example when Mr. Clark (fill of the social studies department left in November to lake Navy training. Mr. (fill found time to stop in at U. High between his indoctrination course and his departure for active duty, and let us admire him in his Ensign’s uniform. Mr. Manfred Schrupp, boys' physical education instructor, was the next to go, for he was called to dut with the Navy in February, and he left to take up the work of submarine detection. To New London, Conn., went Miss Gladys Koepke, as Ensign Koepke of the Spars. To wish her good luck and show their appreciation for her work members of the Girls’ Club presented her with a stud box and Acme gave her a leather stationery set. Another member of the personnel department, Mr. Walter Johnson, went to work for the Navy and left for Washington under the title of Ensign Johnson. Mr. Cirlislc Anderson, head of manual training department, left in March for Kearney, Nebraska; from there he went to Florida, where after extensive training he will be made an instructor in the Navy Air Corps. Early in spring quarter Mr. James Curtis, assistant director, left as a I.t. Commander, second grade, in the United States Navy. These teachers found it necessary to answer their call to duty with the armed forces. Other teachers, already engaged with a heavy load of duties, took on added responsibilities so the school could run smoothly. This was a real contribution just as it was a contribution for many of U. High’s members to answer the call for military service. The senior class of nineteen hundred and forty-three wishes the faculty and the students in the service and those who are yet to enter the service, every good wish that they will do their jobs well and return home just as quickly as possible. 10JOHN ALLEN JOHN STEELE A8BOTT.

In 1937 a small group of boys and girls first entered University High School as seventh graders. They have now grown to a class of fifty-nine young men and women. Under the leadership of lames Stone, senior class president, this group has accomplished many things. Bette Hctfield as vice-president assisted lames Stone, and David Hubbell recorded the minutes of the meetings. The treasury was under the close supervision of John Abbott, treasurer. Among the many activities carried on by the senior class is the care of a large service flag which hangs in the hall. A special committee headed by lean Kinsey and Barbara King prepared this flag. On the flag arc stars representing all University High School graduates who arc serving in any branch of the armed forces. Two gold stars, representing two of our graduates who have given up their lives, are already on this flag. This year the Mothers’ Teas were under the chairmanship of Jean Kinsey. The Senior Mothers' Tea was an outstanding one of the year. I hc tea was carried out in a Valentine's Day theme, red and white being the dominant colors. Traditional acti ities, such as the Junior Senior Prom (1942), the Senior Class Play, the Senior Picnic, Baccalaureate, and Commencement, were successfully carried out by the class. Several senior lx ys entered the armed forces before the end of the school year, and upon graduating many of the other class members will be enrolled in some branch of the services, lari us wish them good luck and let us hope these seniors of 1943 will do as much in the next six years as they have in the last.

After much thought and consideration the play committee headed by lane Gavcr and assisted by Miss Handlan, class adviser, and Miss Scaburv, dramatics coach, chose a hilarious comedy in three acts, "And Came The Spring." When try outs were held there was a lot ot competition for the roles. Room 210 became the actor’s heaven every night after school. While the cast was practicing the play, they also learned some helptul hints. From now on Jean Kinsey will shout when she talks, Gil Fricdell will no longer shutTle his feet, and Jean learned will relax. After weeks of hard work the play was put on, Friday. May twenty-eighth, at the Music Auditorium. The enthusiastic response ot the audience proved it ranked right up with other U. High senior class plays. Credit for the success of the play must go not only to the cast members hut also to the director. Miss Seabury. anil the various hardworking committees who helped with all the preparations.

Raising money was a problem, hut the '‘Captains" found several ways of solving it. They gave a successful twilight dance at Shevlin and during spring quarter held a War Stamp Raffle. In addition they collected coat hangers, and eld records—thus helping themselves by raising money and helping the government at the same time. On May 21 the J. S. was held at Coffman Memorial Union and Red Melgrcn’s orchestra played to the delight of all. In spite of all their difficulties the juniors put on an outstanding J. S. Susan Ncsbit was in charge of the Mothers 1 ca this year and the girls entertained their mothers royally. The tea was held on March 10 and the girls chose a spring theme for decorations and program.

For recreation in the fall quarter there was a roller skating party held at the Coliseum. They, too, had spring fever and a hilarious picnic was held in this quarter. Everywhere you went during one week of the winter quarter, a sophomore would be popping up and reminding you to bring some lxx ks for the soldiers. They should lx rewarded with a prize medal for being the “best bounders" for they collected, in just one week, one President Vice-president Secretary Treasurer hundred and fifty volumes for the Victory Book Drive. With Elizabeth Carnes as the chairman, the girls entertained their mothers in grand fashion at the tea which was held February 24. The very helpful Senate representatives were Bill McGee, John Buchta, and Margaret Bcd-dall. The sophomore class was well represented in the play "Ever Since Eve” with Bede Clapp, Jack Mork, and Gerry McMcckin in the cast of characters. Miss Prine, adviser, said the phrase “full of life” describes the "tough sergeants.” Jack Ricler . .

Several of the girls in the class have done Red Cross knitting, and we arc sure the soldiers will appreciate the atghans and sweaters they made. Other members of the class kept busy making scrapbooks and cribbagc l oards. In the fall quarter they had a skating party at the Norris Gym which turned out to l c a great success, and, taking advantage of the huge snow storms Minneapolis had this winter, they had a sleigh ride on the farm campus. Several of the members of the class participated in the Junior Dramatic Club, which gave a clever skit at the Homecoming Dance. The senate representatives were Nancy Riglcr and Mary Goepfert. Evelyn Sexton served as chairman tor Mothers' Tea which was held in April. This class did a fine job this year and some of the praise should go to their class adviser. Miss di Giambattista.

Rookies The seventh and eighth grades may have been the youngest in the school, but they were right up on the top this year, as far as being important was concerned. Miss Day and Mrs. McCart, seventh and eighth grade advisers respectively, agreed heartily with this statement. Not to be outdone by the senior high, the girls, under the supervision of Miss Seabury, organized a Junior I Jigh Dramatic Club. They held the audience spell-bound at the homecoming party, while they acted out Blackout! The club also gave a skit for assembly, in which members portrayed various teachers when they were young. Following the tradition of the school, the girls of the two classes cooperated to give a Mothers’ Tea, the fourteenth of April. Their program consisted of a skit given by the Junior Dramatic Club. Judging by the applause, the mothers enjoyed it a lot. Eighth grader Jocelyn Mar- tin and seventh grader Susan 1 ledhack acted as chairmen for their respective teas. The Little Rookies are also social minded. The seventh grade attended the plays .Ihce in Wonderland, Treasure Island, and Darnel Boone, and had a party after each play. At the beginning of the fall quarter they gave a dessert luncheon for the faculty, so that the teachers and seventh graders got to know each other early in the year. The eighth grade had a picnic at Clcnwood Park during the fall quarter. Because of gas rationing, the class rode streetcars to and from the park. The object of the picnic was to study nature, hut they found time for games and eating, too. With the start these Rookies have, there is no telling what grand things they will do by the time they arc seniors. SEVENTH GRADE OFFICERS President .. . . Ted Finneity Vice-president .

Jack Rf.bney 25Assembly THE STUDENTS at University High School en- 1 joyed a season of varied assembly programs this year. Most of them were varied, interesting, just about all of the students agreed that they were "the berried.” As a matter of fact, almost all of them could very easily have been buried. One feature of each assembly was the community singing, led by Mr. lames F. Nickerson. University students strolling outside the Museum of Natural History were astonished to hear the baying of sup-| osedly-stulTcd wolves. The janitor o! the museum (they let him out last summer) rushed upstairs to turn off the water, which he imagined was Hooding everything. President (Coffey sent a petition to the Hoard of Regents, demanding that those Spanish exchange students hold their ceremonial dances somewhere else. When told of these occurrences, Mr. Nickerson promised that he would tone the singing down a little bit. This year, instead of each class putting on an as scmbly program, they were divided amongst the various departments. The most important of these assemblies were those put on by the English, Science, and Social Studies departments. The English assembly, which was all in English, consisted of parodies on four works of literature. Before the parodies were presented it was explained to the audience that the word “literature" is compounded from two Latin words, "lit." as when "my eld man comes home every Saturday night all lit up," and “tcraturc," which bears a faint resemblance to the Anglo-Saxon "torture." "Therefore, literature is nothing but exhilarating torture." The first parody was on “Young Lochinvar," by Sir Falter Rott. (Walter Scott to you.) Next came a Po-cm. "Cannibal I-cc." by A. Nonymous. This was followed by “The Courtship of Miles Standish," which had nothing whatever to do with Miles Standish. There have been many more famous courtships, such as the Courtship “H. M. S. Pinafore," and the Qnirtship "'Hie State vs. Al Capone.” The English assembly concluded with the Tomb Scene, from Romeo and Juliet. In this scene two things Ik-camc apparent to the audience; first, that Romeo wasn’t kilt in a day, and second, that the reason Juliet didn't recover consciousness in time to save Romeo's life was that Juli et too much. Two weeks later the Science IX-partmcnt presented that epic drama, "The March of Science." The members of the science department decided to put on the assembly in March because they realized that "The April of Science" would have sounded ridiculous. The "March of Science” depicted the lives of some of the great men of science. Among them were Archimedes, Pasteur, Mendel, the Wright Brothers, Morse, and many more. ("I hc way Men-dally dilly to make up puns is way Pasteur me.) The final assembly program we shall talk about is the one put on by the Social Studies Department. It consisted of two parts, a round-table discussing the question, "I low is the war affecting the people of the U. S.?" (it was a very animate round-table) and a scries of skits telling alx ut the numerous wartime pests. One of these jKsts was an arm chair strategist. How he managed to get on the program arm chair I don’t know. I hc reaction of the students to the assembly programs can Ik best typified by the remark of an eighth grade pupil. He remarked, “Huh???" The reaction of the faculty can best Ik typified by the remark made by a teacher. 1 Ic remarked, "Assembly no questions and I'll tell you no lies." 26ORGANIZATIONS Victory Editors Credit is due to the Bisbila stall members this year for their victory year book. Because of the war they have had to cut the year book in size, and use both sides of the paper so they wouldn't be wasting valuable material, but still every party, club, anti activity is well represented. Much of the material in the feature section was done by the junior class and many of the feature pictures were turned in by University High students and faculty members. The assistant editors were chosen mostly from underclassmen. They included: lack Kigler, Sue Nesbit, Jean Scammon, Shirley Knobloch, jean Brcidcnbach, Nancy Holmes, Janet Ahrens, Charlie Jensch. Hill Burn. Avelcigh Read, Kathleen Quigley, James kamiske, Bill McGee, Lil Rumble, Sandra Spaeth. Paul Berrisford and Mary Merrill. BISBILA BOARD-STANDING: Dunn Critchficld Murray Sturre F.

Lowry Nelson was the news editor, Nora Brink was in charge of the feature page, Gil Frie-dell anil Barbara King served as layout editors, Wilson Schmidt directed the sport page, and Mr. ( arisen advised them all. During the winter quar-ter Jane Gavcr and Marion Mitchell, two senior girls, became the fourth page News editors. The Breeze printed many articles to promote war interest, to help raise funds for the Red Cross and the War Relief Chest, and to help collect old stockings, records, and coat hangers. In the Christmas issue the Breeze published an editorial concerned with the wiping out of T. B. and for their efforts they received a special award from the I Icn-nepin County T. B. Association.Signal Corps Under the guidance of Mr. Laging, the Camera Club was organized this year to teach those interested in photography the way to take, develop, and print pictures. In the beginning of the year, the members were, with a few exceptions, all amateurs. For this reason much of the fall quarter was spent in preparation and practice. I-ater in the year the club became a real service organization for the school. Breeze and Bisbila pictures were taken by this group and the students learned much about photo study from their work with these two publications. Photography clubs have been tried in previous years at U. High but with little success. This year the Camera Club has been a welcome addition and Ixrcause of the interest shown by the members, its adviser, and the student body, the Camera Club has a good start for next year.

It is purely a service club and has really given valuable aid to U. High classroom activities. It has but two officers, Don Cruzcn, President, and John Buchta, Secretary, and one committee chairman, Jim Kamiskc, head of the qualifying committee. The duties of the A.V.O.C. are to supply the various classes with “Audio” equipment, such as public address system and phonographs, and "Visual Equipment", such as movie and slide projectors—thusly Audio-Visual Operators’ Club. Aside from being the most different club in school, it is also the youngest, for it was organized just this year. Among its achievements have been the construction of an improved P.A. system in Shevlin, and the showing of movies at the noon hour activity period. 2 Women War Workers Under the guidance of Acme, Girls’ Honorary Society, a room was set aside in the school for the sole purpose of Red Cross work. Each Acme girl took a turn, during her study period, to have charge of the project and help the girls who were working in the room. Headed by Mary 1-ou Strong, president, Mary Sexton, secretary, and Marge Boberg. treasurer, the society did other numerous things to help the war elTort, such as selling stamps during each noon hour. Acme sold over seventy dollars worth of war stamps and nine war bonds. During the spring quarter girls were elected into Acme on the basis of personality, leadership, scholastic achievement and service to the school. The girls chosen were: Jean Learned, Jean Kinsey, Joyce Tucker, Joan Murray, Nan Parks, Barbara Critchfield and Pat Harty. ACMESTANDING: Thoii M. Bobers M.

Nclton Abbott Dr. Andcrton Home Guard 'I hc Dragoman, under the leadership of Lowry Nelson, had an active and worthwhile school year in 1942-43. They met once a month to talk over high school problems which students could help solve. Mr. Anderson and Mr. Curtis until he went on duty into the Navy, acted as advisers to the group. One of the major contributions Dragoman made to the school was the regular supervision they gave to junior high lunch hour activities. The Dragoman has always taken part in Parent-Teacher meetings held at the school. They act as ushers, introduce teachers to the parents of the students, and in other ways take an active part in the meetings. Elections to the club are held twice a year. Boys initiated in the spring quarter this year were Frank I larris, Larry Clark. Bob Cranston. Jim Bray, and John Buchta. 30Mus c for Victory The U. I ligh choir has had a busy and successful year. Under the direction of Mr. Nickerson, choir members have put on several very interesting programs. At Christmas assembly they presented the story of the Christ Child in music. Another high point in this program came when Barbara McKay sang “Cantique de Noel.” It was through the efforts of the choir that the all-school musical. V. High Ughts of -fi, was suggested and then carried through. The entire choir, as well as other students, participated in this program. The all girl choir met on Mondays, and then without any male voices to throw them off they sang to their heart’s content. The all boy choir met on Fridays. and on Wednesdays the groups met together.

Army Band Recruits Those sounds coming from Mr. Nickerson’s office during the day, are the students learning to play instruments. The hand practices mostly at noon. This year students have had a “floating schedule” permitting class instruction on the various instruments during the school day. The first chance these students had to | crfcrm was at the Christmas assembly, where a string and woodwind ensemble furnished music. They played "() Come All Ye Faithful,” and other Christmas carols so that the students could join in and sing with them. The purjkose of the instrumental program is to teach beginning and advanced students to play instruments they arc interested in. Besides practicing during the school hours with Mr. Nickerson’s help, many of the students play with instrumental groups outside of school. 31FRENCH CLUB—TOP ROW: Read, I. Hcnly, Scammon. Phillip .

Free French Miss di Giambattista, new adviser for the French Club, sponsored the group through a highly successful year. At the annual Christmas party, the members exchanged gifts by putting them in each other's shoes, and then saw the movie "Joan of Arc." after which they ate cherry tarts. The qualifications required of the Mademoiselles and Monsieurs for membership have l ccn changed Good Neighbors "1 lola, Scnor! Hola, Senorita!" Don't be surprised if you happened to hear these enchanting shouts in the halls because it was just the Spanish students keeping up the good neighbor policy. Miss Ellen di Giambattista, adviser, helped keep up the interest in Pan Americanism. Although the club me misers didn't have regular this year and all French students arc allowed to join the club instead of just second, third, and fourth year students. Mary Lou Strong was president and assisting her in club activities were Jean Ix-arned, vice president, and Virginia Aldcn. secretary-treasurer. To finish up the year’s activities the French Club in cooperation with the German and Spanish Clubs gave a picnic — the last week of May. meetings, they attended movies and went together to Spanish plays that were presented at the University Theater.

Roman Strategists Caesar, Cicero, and Virgil are mysteries to most of us, hut not to members of the Latin Club. All students who take Latin arc members of this club. Meetings were held during class periods which was very agreeable to the students. Different groups from the classes put on skits and served refreshments to the other members of the class. Included in these skit , was "Vo Satcrnalia," a Christmas play which was also given at an assembly. German Philosophers “Ah, sweet drama of life!"; a fitting slogan for the Cicrman Club, which turned dramatic. Believe it or not, hut this change has made the German Club campus renowned. In the beginning of the year the Germans presented plays at their meetings, twice a month; hut their rise to fame came suddenly when they presented their plays to the University Cicrman group and other Minneapolis high schools. To improve their newly developed talent they attended One traditional activity of the club has always been the Roman banquet, where typical Roman dishes were served in the style of the ancients and other Roman customs were carried out. This year, however, it was impossible to hold the banquet because wartime conditions made it impossible for the club to find a suitable out-of-school meeting place. ()thcr dub activities, however, were carried on at full speed to make a busy and profitable year. The Student Prince anti the movie Konzcrt ini Tirol. With such industrious leaders as President Gil Fricdcll, Vice President Margery Pieper, Secretary Hobart Setzer, and Treasurer Stanley Gabay, wouldn’t you be inspired? Under the direction of their adviser, Miss Birkmaicr, the club members published a newspaper and at one time made recordings of their voices. With these activities the German philosophers kept busy. 33WINS The U. High Girls’ Club was really working toward victory all year. They began by starting a Red Cross Unit early in the fall. Groups met each week and worked on individual projects such as making scrapbooks, afghan squares, tray mats, and crossword puz .lc bocks. Besides making things, the Wins sponsored collections of silk stockings and yarn. Preparing Thanksgiving baskets for needy families was another activity of the club. As commander-in-chief, Marge Bobcrg made a splendid leader. Mary Emslic was vice president, with Lillian Rumble as secretary, and Sally Dunn as treasurer. Mrs. Turner became the club's adviser when Miss Koepkc joined the SPARS. Class representatives were: senior, lean Kinsey and Jane Gnver; junior, Betty Rydell; and sophomore, |oannc Bouthi-Ict. lean Kinsey ami Cecelia Lynch were general chairmen for all the Mothers’ Teas. Propaganda Publicists Supplying the school with decorative posters advertising school events has kept the Art Directors’ league busy throughout the school year. It has publicized such events as the stocking collection, the clcan-up-Shevlin drive, and the all school play and musical. Requests for jwsters were handed to the president. Joyce Tucker, or the adviser, Mr. Imaging. Joyce was ably assisted by Ted I lasbrouck as vice president. Bcv. Howcy as secretary, and John Hastings as treasurer. Posters were not the only things the league made. 'I hcsc neat bulletin Isoard signs you’ve admired in Mrs. Mcrideth’s history class room were turned out hv the organization. With their slogan.

Anyone wanting to help Miss Smith, our new librarian, was very much appreciated. Each member was given opportunity to get acquainted with all the jobs of the library. The favorite ones proved to be sitting in the swivel chair at the charging desk, and taking care of the | criodical section. Far more tedious jobs were shelving, taking care of the reserve desk, and typing overdue book Morale Boosters Under the guidance of Mrs. Lois Turner, and others interested in promoting school spirit, the Pep Club was started last fall. Because of the never dying interest and enthusiasm of its members many spectators turned out for the football games and basketball games. It was through their efforts that streetcars were hired to take sports enthusiasts to the U. High-Robbinsdalc game. During winter quarter the club held a sleigh ride and had a great time. notices. This year the board was the largest it has ever been in the history of U. High, so that there were enough to have substitutes every week in addition to the regular staff. Students on the library board were kept really busy this year because the reserve desk seemed to be unusually busy all term. The whole school owes a vote of thanks to Miss Smith and her helpers for the efficient way in which the library was run. Dinner was served at Mrs. Turner’s house before the sleigh ride. Through their efforts the Pep Club members have proved that school spirit can be brought out and everyone has had a lot of fun doing it. Barbara Critchficld did a fine job of presiding at the meetings. Her assistants were Don Cruzen. vice president; Tom Parrish, secretary; and Elly Nuwash, treasurer.

Stage Door Canteen Lynn Fontaine and Alfred Lunt have nothing on the U. High students who arc members of the Dramatic Club. This club, which is one of the oldest and largest in the school, is oj cn to any senior high student who is interested in dramatics. Members don't have to be interested solely in acting for there are many other sides of the theater discussed in the club. The club this year was divided into separate sections. each of which studied some aspect cf acting such as make-up, lighting, costumes, anti other very important back stage duties. Several plays, "The Castle of Mr. Simpson.” and “Heaven Help the Working Girl,” were put on by some members of the club during the year to entertain the rest of the organization. “The Castle of Junior Canteeners Not to Ik outdone by the senior high, the junior high also had a dramatic club which was open to all junior highites though most of the members were seventh and eighth graders. They have a few more years to go than the members cf the senior club, but in a few more years they, too. will hold an audience spellbound in the annual dramatic club play. The play, “Dolls,” which was given at the Christmas assembly, was an example of what we can expect from these students in the way of interpretation during the next few years. In this play, the dolls came to life and carried on a very amusing conversation. Another important production of the club was the play, “Miss Sidney Carton." which was presented at the seventh and eighth grade Mothers' Tea. Mr. Simpson" was also presented to all the students at an assembly program during the winter quarter. During the fall quarter, as is the custom, the Dramatic Club put on a play for the entire school. This year’s play was “Ever Since Eve," a comedy concerning a group of high school students who turn a home into a journalism office. It was directed by Miss Lorna Seabury, who is adviser for the club. After much deliberation officers were chosen for the club. Those elected were Bill Burn, president; Barbara Critchficld, vice-president; Nan Barks, secretary; and Jean Learned, treasurer. Meetings were held every Tuesday and all the members agreed that it was a profitable club, for besides having fun they learned a great deal. During the year the members of the club obtained dramatic experience by taking part in plays which were presented at club meetings. In the spring quarter the junior dramatists decided they should lay foundations for a permanent organization so they wrote a constitution which will carry over to next year; thus the club will Ik ready to start activities at once in September. The constitution can only be changed by a vote of two-thirds of the membership and a week’s notice must Ik given. Officers of the club this year were Janet Nelson, president; Ruth Rigler, vice-president; and Ted Fin-nerty, secretary-treasurer. These officers were assisted by committees which helped with the organization and running of the club. 56NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY: Abbott. Tucker. Or. Anderjon.

High also has its famous people, both in students ami faculty. Art awards seem to have been the most prevalent this year. Fat Knight and Joyce Tucker, members of the advanced art class, received honorable mentions in the National Scholastic Art Contest, and Mr. Imaging won first place in the portrait section of the University Photographic contest. Lowry Nelson received recognition for his outstanding high school work by winning a scholarship to Yale University. Several teachers at U. High held offices in educational organizations. Miss Prine was chairman at the Special Teachers Section at the Minnesota Education Association. Miss Handlan was elected president of the Minneapolis English Teachers’ Club for 1943-44. and Mrs. Mcridcth was editor this year of The Bulletin of the Minnesota Council for the Social Studies. Another literary teacher was Mr. Castleberry, who is co-author of a source unit for teachers called "Making Our (Jovernmcnt l fficicnt: Public Administration in the United States”. 37Camp Actiuities At the beginning of the year it was noticed that many of the girls were knitting in class; however, they decided knitting was not conducive to study and should be done at some other time. (»irls were knitting sweaters, mittens, scarfs, and other things both for themselves, and for the war effort. Several girls decided to start a club, and under the leadership of Bette Hctficld, president, the club was organized and it was settled that meetings should be every Friday during noon hour. To belong to this club one didn't have to be an excellent knitter, but just be a member of the senior high and willing to spend the time knitting ami teaching those who wished to learn the art. With unwritten knitting directions the girls got along just fine and several of the girls knitted sweaters for the sailors and soldiers. Just before Christmas, the girls started knitting afghan squares for the Red Cross. Over vacation each girl made at least three squares and as many more as she could. For their first year the knitting club did excellent work and it looks as if it might become an established club at U. High. The club members were (xcilia Lynch. Shirley Thorne. Bette Hctficld, Jean Learned. Joanne Undine. Elly Nuwash. I’hyllis King, Janet Anderson. Janie (Javer. Carolyn Carscllc. Owen I’arkc. and Jean Scammon. + + + Have you ever thought you were a future Dickens or Longfellow? Have you ever had the desire to express yourself without having to worry about what grade you'd get on your efforts? If so, the place for you is the Creative Writing Croup. Many aspiring young poets, essayists, and novelists have started on the road to fame and fortune through their work in this group. The object of this club has been to offer to students interested in creative writing a chance to express themselves. The poems and stories were discussed by the group as a whole, 3ml ideas were given as to how they could be improved. Meetings were held Friday noons under the advisership of Mr. Robert ('arisen, who helped the students express their ideas in correct grammatical form and still have their writing interesting. According to Mr. Carlscn the efforts were very encouraging, since the writing improved as the year progressed, and the members seemed to show more and more interest in writing. Most of the year was spent writing poetry; however, short stories anti themes were close seconds. Jean Learned, Mary Sexton. Barbara Hcnly, Barbara King, and N'orah Brink made up the Creative Writing Group. + + + The Society of Amalgamated Progressive Scientists, as the University I Jigh School science club is known, is a group of boys and girls who arc interested in the following fields of science: chemistry, biology, geology, and electricity. Each member of the club is a member of one or more of these groups, and carries on work in his special field of interest. The club put on an assembly which contained many of the fruits of the work done in these groups. The Society of Amalgamated Progressive Scientists is a relatively new club, organized at the beginning of the spring quarter, but it now has its basis in a good constitution and will Ik all ready to start at the beginning of next year. The club set aside one day a week on which any member of the club could work on any project that he wished, as long as it was safe and sound, in the Chemistry Laboratory. A student teacher or Mr. (ijerde was always on hand to give assistance and advise the members of the club as to their work. Club officers were Wilson Schmidt, president, and Avcleigh Read, secretary-treasurer. 38Ensign Schrupp on Actiue Duty Among the faculty members of U. 1 ligh to Join the armed forces this year was Mr. Manford II. Schrupp. In February he left to enter the service of the Navy where he was immediately commissioned as an Ensign. While at U. High Ensign Schrupp coached basketball and football and directed boys physical education classes. Because of his work as the adviser to the Boys’ U. Club and Physical Fitness Club, the fellows proclaimed him an excellent leader. The enlarged physical fitness program for boys which was begun during the fall quarter was set up and directed by Mr. Schrupp. Physical fitness classes were held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during third and seventh hours.

Club has again fulfilled its purpose of fostering interest in athletics. Also this year the club has organized the Physical Fitness Club. This new club is to prepare its members physically for the armed forces. Although Ensign Schrupp left for the Navy in the winter quarter, the club has carried on successfully. To become a member of the U. Club, a boy must first receive a letter in a sjx»rt of major importance and then go through the club's membership ceremonies. The club holds these ceremonies twice a year, once in the fall, and once in the spring. This year the club has lost three of its members to the armed forces— Jerry Krueger, Marine; Bill Tilden and Jud Whitmore. Marine Raiders. The club of twenty-three athletes usually has its meetings at the school during noon hour, but sometimes it holds dinner meetings at Coffman Memorial Union. Other officers of the club were: Jud Whitmore, Vice-president; l d Briggs. Secretary; and John Amberg, Treasurer. 41FIRST TEAM—FRONT: left to right: Mubbell, Tilden. Brev.

Friday, September 18. The opponent was a big Hopkins eleven, the team which later won the Lake Conference Championship. Sparked by Captain Jud Whitmore. the Schruppmcn made many drives toward the goal line, but the wet weather caused costly fumbles, i lopkins scored in every period and the game ended 24-0 in favor of the visitors. At Mound on the 25th of September, in the second game of the season, the Little (Jophers bowed to a stronger Mound eleven by the score of 12-0. During the first period a Mound halfback threw a pass to an end who scampered over the goal line for their first touchdown. Bad luck in the form of fumbles hampered the Little Gophers. Quite a few times the Schruppmcn became a scoring threat, but every time a tumble or an interception would occur, ruining U. High’s scoring chances. Mound's second and last tally came in the third quarter. This time it was another pass, much the same as in the first touchdown, which gave them their score. Under the blazing sun at Robbinsdalc. Friday afternoon, October 2, the Maroon and Gold held an overrated Robbinsdalc eleven to the score of 14-0. The game was expected to be a run away for Robbinsdalc, but the Little Gophers’ strong defensive play made it anything but that. Missing from the line-up was U. High’s first string halfback. Captain Jud Whitmore. Also in the first few minutes of play Ed Hanlon, U. High’s other first string halfback, was injured. The Robbins scored their first touchdown on the first play of the game, when one of their halfbacks lugged the pigskin through the Little Gophers to paydirt. The Robbins’ last score of the game came in the second period after they staged a long drive down the field. U. High continued its losing streak when Wayzata handed the Little Gophers their fourth straight defeat. Friday, October 16. Although the Schruppmcn out-gained the Wayzata team almost three to one, they couldn't put the pigskin over the goal line. The way for Wayzata’s lone touchdown was paved when they partially blocked two of U. High's punts. From the forty yard line, Wayzata’s Ross Amundson sprang a surprise pass to the end. After a fingertip catch by Elliot, the end, the ball was pushed the remaining yard for a touchdown. In the last quarter, the Little Gophers started a touchdown march but were finally stopped by the final gun. The game ended with Wayzata the victor, 6-0. U. High ended its 1942 foollxill season by bowing to St. Louis Park. The Little Gophers were bitterly disappointed when the final guns sounded, tor it sjKlIcd their sixth straight defeat and a victoryless season. Park reached the Little Gopher’s 10-20 yard line in two differ- ent thrusts, but the Maroon and Gold held firm. On Park’s third try, they reached paydirt. The touchdown was made when Bert Erickson chucked a pass to Boh Erickson. The extra point was then kicked, making the score 7-0 as it stood for the rest of the game. The Parkers had an exceptionally line passing attack and they used it to good advantage. Only interceptions made near the goal line by IXm Sage and Jack Tjossem stopped the score from mounting up for Park. In the game in which U. High made its first touchdown of the season, the Little Gophers were defeated by Excelsior, 12-7, (Xtolx-r 22, at Northrop Field. The first touchdown of the game came early in the second quarter and Excelsior’s second and last score came in the middle of the third period when they made a long sweep around end. U. High's touchdown march was started when Captain Jud Whitmore intercepted a pass on his own forty yard line and ran it back to Excelsior’s twenty. The Little Gophers made another first down, but then lost the ball on downs. One play later U. High recovered an Excelsior fumble. Jack Tjossem tlien plunged over for U. High's only score and Jim Bray booted the extra point. 43 Practice ScrimmageTOP ROW: Mr. Schrupp, Mr. Warhol. Kamiika, Rider. Norecn, Tinker. SECOND ROW: Herricd, T|o»»em, Bnggi. Amberg, Hubbcll.

At the first of the season the team was coached by Mr. Schrupp, U. High's new athletic direc tor, but when Coach Schrupp left for the Navy, assistant coach Willie Warhol, former University of Minnesota player, took over. Ed Briggs gave the team fine leadership and the individual players proved to l c cooperative and faithful members. The first game of the season was played with Mound, at Mound. Although the Little Gophers led at the half, the final score ended with Mound the victor, 34-23. The first home game was played with Rcbbinsdalc. The Rob bins took that one 41-20, by their sharp-shooting. In the next game, U. High again bowed in defeat. This time they were beaten by Ex celsior 56-35. The fourth game of the season again showed U. I ligh at the wrong end. This time they were beaten by Bark 59-37. Hopkins, lend by Stu Skoglund. was the next team to put the Schruppmen in the lost column. 'Hie game ended 47-25. The last game of the first round was played with Wayzata at Wayzata. Although the Little Gophers played hard, the game ended 56-21 in Wayzata’s favor. Knapp, Bnggi, and Amberg fight. Wayiata triumphi over U. High. The second round started with Mound again defeating U. High, this time by the score of 40-21. The Little Gophers’ second game with Rob-binsdale proved to Ik the most interesting game of the season for U. High. At the last conference game of the season, the U. Highites hit their stride and decisively beat Excelsior 25-18. In the sub-district, U. High drew W ayzata. They had high ho| es. but were defeated and so eliminated from the sub-district play-ofTs. 44WRESTLING 1EAM: Coach Emcnon. Sweet. Randolph. Harm. Marcck. FIRST ROW: Sage. Cran.ton, Whitmore. Nelson. Gage. Wrestling The wrestling team had a very full season this year, having meets with all the Lake Conference teams and a few Minneapolis schools. Although they had nine meets in all and most of the members were veterans of last year's squad, the matmen just couldn’t taste victory. The team suffered a loss when Captain Jud Whitmore left for the Marines. I Ic had the best record on the team, winning eight out of his nine matches. Jud wrestled in the 164 lb. class, hut his weight was only 145. Regardless of this disadvantage he still won. In the regional meet one man, Don Sage, placed. Winning a second, Don was able to go to the state meet where he placed fourth in the 155 lb. division. He is the first man from U. High to place in one of the first four places for a long time. This was the high achievement of the wrestling season. Team members who participated in each weight class were: •V5 Pound Class Mareck 95 Pound Class K.

Track University High's track team, led by Captain Larry Clark, has had a highly successful season. Bolstered by five returning lettermcn, (Larry Clark, Ed Clapp. Bob Cranston, Don Sage, and Jack Tjosscm) the team’s outstanding triumphs came in the St. Louis Park Meet and the Mound Relays. April 24 saw the cindcrmcn capture five firsts in the Park Meet. Because of a late start in organization, Coach Morrill was unable to give the men time trials before the Meet, but team members came through in tine shape. In the Mound Relays of May 6 there were seven schools competing for a title. Members of U. High’s team placed in many of the events. 100 Yard Dash................... 220 Yard Dash................... 440 Yard Dash................... 880 Yard Run....................

Because of the new physical fitness program which required all junior and senior boys to take gym, the traditional set-up of the practice schedule for the track team was changed. Much of the practicing was done during gym period, which made it hard for the coach to give individual help to team members.

The top-ranking six men arc the same as on last year's team: Captain Howie Johnson, Tom Parrish, Ed Briggs, John Amberg, Larry Doyle, and Jim Stone. Blake was the first match of the season and it came out with U. High on the losing end of the score. In other matches the team came through with better results. 15-3 in favor of U. High was the final outcome of the Wayzata match. Three outstanding members of the team, Briggs, Parrish, and Amberg, will be hack next year to serve as a nucleus for the 1944 golf team. Tennis ’lire 1943 tennis team has gone through somewhat the same procedure this year as it has in the other years. Early in practice the members organized a tournament for the intra-squad championship. The winner is No. 1 man on the team and the high placing was won this year by Bill McGee, who is a ranking Northwest player. As in the preceding years, the tennis team was under the direction of Mr. Don Castleberry, whose college tennis experience prepared him for his coaching duties. The team’s schedule included matches with Johnson High, St. Louis Park, and Deephaven. While U. Highites followed the team’s interscholastic matches with much interest, one of the major aims of the tennis program was to encourage intramural playing within our own student body.

The boys in the seventh through tenth grades have been doing their usual schedules, but this year the theme has been different. With the knowledge that they must stay or become fit in both mind and body, the boys have gone to it with zest. Not to be outdone by the younger } opulacc, eleventh and twelfth grade fellows have taken part in an intensified physical fitness program. Originally the classes met every day. but it was later changed to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The seniors had this gym course third hour, while the juniors did the same thing during the seventh hour. The schedule of the two older classes was quite different from that provided for the younger boys. During the fall quarter Mr. Schrupp had the boys run an obstacle-course which is very much like the one used in the Army obstacle course exercise. They took part in Army games which required much physical strength. Some classes were held in the apparatus room where the lx ys exercised on parallel bars or limbered up with tumbling anti calisthenics. After this kind of physical exertion the now improved specimens of U. High manhood had games such as soccer, races with the football dummy, and pushball with the main purjx sc of building leg muscles. During the winter quarter the lx»ys ran over the track, played pushball, soccer, and last but not least they had quite a little bit of basketball. During the quarter Mr. Schrupp left for the Navy but his physical fitness classes 'till lived on. Spring quarter saw the classes practicing track sports and baseball. The younger grades, seven through ten, went about their usual routine with football and some swimming in fall quarter; wrestling, more swimming and lots cf basketball in winter quarter; baseball, track, golf, and tennis in spring quarter. They didn’t spend all their time on these sports, but also had soccer and pushball thrown at them whenever there was an opportunity. With Mr. Schrupp doing his very best in the Navy, a new teacher stepjxrd into the limelight. Although some of the boys haven't seen Mr. Kacss. they certainly have heard of him. Working with Mr. Kacss were student teachers who did splendid jobs.Phyncal Fitncu dc luie. Girls’ Physical Education The j irls gym classes under the supervision of Miss FJoise Jaeger and Miss Theda Haganah participated in many different activities. During the fall quarter while the weather was still nice the girls played soccer and baseball. On Fridays they could choose badminton, swimming or archery. We found that in these different sports Jay Tildcn was a very graceful diver. Marge 1 Icthcld and Joyce I falvcrson good swimmers, Carolyn Rondestvedt a snappy badminton player and Aveleigh Read. Lill Rumble, and Liz Carnes hot baseball players. The winter quarter indoor classes included basketball, volleyball and badminton. Hetty Dahlin, Nancy Cullum, Marge Hctfield, and Jean Swoboda made up a good basketball team. Again the girls were able to choose different sports on Frida)s. This quarter swimming, basketball, golf, and badminton were ofTered. Spring quarter found the girls playing tennis on the University courts. On Friday they again had swimming. baseball, golf and tennis. Some cf the junior high girls that showed capability in such sports as basketball, swimming and tumbling were Hetty Howyer, Jo-Ann Parke, Pudge Hoberg, Marge Krinsky and Joan Cranston. The ninth grade girls were given a course in physical fitness which included frequent tests on the subject of hygiene. On Fridays the freshmen girls were also given a course in Junior Lifesaving. A basketball tournament was held by the tenth grade with Marge 1 Ictficld, Nancy Cullum, Joyce Halverson and Marilyn Hergquist as captains. The Reds and the Whites came out victorious but the Yellow and Green teams made a good showing. The tenth grade girls also had a special instructor who taught them different strokes in swimming. These classes were held on Mondays and Wednesdays. Side crawl and breast strokes were perfected first and front and back dives were then worked upon. Not only were the girls more physically fit, but they had a good time getting fit. Pep Squad Hit 'em high. Hit ‘cm low. Come on U. High, let’s go! 'I hat is how the University High School Cheerlcading Squad, made up of senior cheerleaders, Phyllis Kllerman and Willie Schmidt and junior cheerleaders, Jo Ann Parke and Ted Finncrty, led U. High “crowds” in many a loud cheer. These cheerleaders hit their prime in the last part of the football season when it was so cold that everyone wanted to keep moving around. They have participated in all the pep tests and organized a few by themselves. They were always on hand at the assemblies to give cheers for U. High. They worked in close coordination with the Pep Club to get a back bone into the cheering section. The cheerleaders for this year were chosen last fall by Mr. Johnson, former personnel director, and Mrs. Turner, adviser to the Pep Club. These faculty members looked over ten or fifteen people who tried out for positions on the cheerleading squad and finally decided on these four. They were chosen on the basis of the following qualities: not being self-conscious, being able to cheer loudly, and being easy to follow. Not many students will forget the cheerleaders, their fine work, their willingness, and their success in persuading Mrs. Turner and Mr. Curtis to act as cheerleaders at some of the pep tests. Especially famous was Mrs. Turner's choo-chco yell (with Southern accent). Parke, Finncrty. Ellcrman, and Schmidt give a U. High yell. Mess-T me Ping-pong, dancing, baseball games, and football games were a few of the many activities U. 1 lighites took part in during lunch periods. Of these amusements, dancing and ping-pong held first place during the colder months while shop was a close second. Making model airplanes, bookshelves, baseball bats, metal articles and many other things was the attraction that drew students to the shop in Pattcc 1 fall. Came spring and the dancers and ping-|King players disappeared and eyes turned to baseball competition between the grades, especially on such occasions as when the juniors and seniors were struggling for diamond supremacy. Hut still more popular was sitting on the knoll to cat lunch and just talk. Perhaps the noon hour is the most popular and the most educational (??) part of a U. Highitc’s day. 50All for Fun That's all. Here, you’ll find some tall Some small ones.

I Ic had been raised in a nice home, and now. when he wanted to join the army at the ripe age of seventeen, his parents said definitely not. Their Joe was going to Ik a learned person, a scholar, not just a buck-private in the army. Besides, they thought that the army was too tough on the boys and it would do Joe more harm than good. This is where the parents of Joe Jerk were sadly mistaken, and in order to tell you why. I must give you a brief account of Joe’s daily scholastic routine just as he gave it to me before he passed away. 6:30 A.M.—Toot-Toot—blasts the bugler (Joe’s SI.98 Big Ben) and Joe shoots out of bed and begins to dress like mad. 6:45 A. M.—Breakfast is eaten while trying to study the lesson that should have been done last night. 7:05 A. M.—Struggled through snow drifts to trolley car (trolley line is located six blocks from the Jerk estate). 7:06—Missed trolley number one. will have to wait fifteen minutes for trolley number two. 7:21—After freezing his ears. Joe stands on the back platform amid cigar-smoke of his fellow strap hangers. By this time Joe’s bad stomach is beginning to get the best of him. 8:05—Alights from the trolley to plough through drifts up to his knees to his destination which is located within a five mile radius of civilization. 8:25—Hauls out his one good book and is ready for his first big class of the day. Lucky boy! 8:26—Sees pal Alvin, hails same and hears about Alvin’s big hot date of the night before. Sighs. 8:36—Late for the first class and goes down to pay Colonel Jim his visit of the day. (A little earlier than usual, but nevertheless, he was there in person as he promised he would Ik.) 8:40—liack to class, English, Lt. Handlan officiating. She runs the squad of rookies through daily grammar drills. (As usual. Joe gets them all wrong and so to K. P. duty for the remainder of the week.) 9: 30—History. Captain West demands attention and immediately all copies of Esquire arc put away with a good early-morning sigh! 10:20-11:45—Study period. (Code for sleep and general conversation of the morning.) 11:45-12:30—Mess, anti it certainly is! 12:45—Spanish, more good neighbor policy from Lieutenant di Giambattista. 1:30—Principles and practices of geometry with Captain Princ. 2:30—Long trek to Cooke Hall for a few exercises that arc guaranteed to lay you out. 2:35—Arrive frozen. (Collapse in front of liernie Bierman. (Guess he’ll never make the football team, he’s just not the athletic type.) 2:40—Dressed and late to class for the second time today. ( Big Jim doesn’t live here though.) Calisthenics and ju-jitsu under supervision of some maniac called “The Ripper." True, ver-ry true. 3:00—Collapsed again—this time from over-exercise—and settled down to a nice quiet game of pushball (a combination of football, baseball, soccer, and mass murder). SURVIVED. 3:15—Ran two miles under supervision of “The Ripper ' again. 3:30—Left the school in the last stages of consciousness. So ends Joe’s day and as we depart we see him staggering down the street, completely confused and paralyzed from his day's work. 54I. Janie and Margaret 2. Concentrating 3. Party Committee 4.

We found that sitting is rather difficult and hard on certain parts of the normal body. In general—wc thought that the tests were a waste of time. Maybe they were, but they proved us to Ik the intelligent souls that wc are. Wc all remember the football games, soldiers and sailors and what have you —all yelling for the good old team. If the members of the team only knew the things wc heard them say! They were gallant fellows . . . and those touchdowns. Those touchdowns weren't so numerous but they were appreciated. Though we know that next year things may be very different, wc hope that wc can have a team of fellows just half as swell and half as tough as those who fought for U. 1 ligh this year. I lomccoming is an Annual Event with the teachers entertaining the students for a little variety. The dances and the band. What a hand . . . that conga! Finally home. That was fun. None of us will feel the same as we did that day when wc first saw the proofs of our senior pictures. We looked, stared and then frantically tried to find some pictures somewhere of anybody which could possibly look more shocking than our own. SURPRISING—isn't it? Bill Burn’s figure in that football uniform is something to remember — Jean Learned and Howie Johnson in that clinch—all in Ever Since Eve — recall moments of laughter and a really good show. While wc name the cast, wc just couldn't leave out good old Ole who turned out to Ik a first class southern belle. At the Christmas Assembly the choir showed us that they were doing things, and so wc pepped up and listened. The entire performance was very enlightening— even the part with Santa who distributed all those nice presents. Didn't Knapp look funny with that little lantern? And Mr. Curtis with all those NO slips and the one lonely unused YES. 1 wonder which ones he uses nowadays. With consistent use of the right one, we students would find him very useful at U. High. On Christinas Eve you sat at home by the tree and waited for Santa and sure enough, lie came, and then you opened all your presents, after which you went to the | arty in something very new and simply out of this world, and when you came home you felt the same way. January 1st was a memorable date. I can’t tell you much 'cause I don’t remember. It was much harder than wc all thought to come back to school and settle down to the old grind. The basketball games brought a little spark of hope into those cold and dark mornings coming to school on the bus. Someone said wc should have taken a picture of the score board after that last game. Remember? I wonder!! Then those swell Breezes. The stall worked hard and wc all appreciated coming to our lockers and finding a Breeze to keep us happy for a while. Has-brouck’s comics were appreciated. Those sensational assemblies — the first one when all the clubs had to prove their worth to get a charter. Then the F.nglish IXpartmcnt assembly — Betty Rydcll certainly pounds the ivories in good style. Don Sage earned deserved honors in wrestling, and Jim Bray ditl swell work in the state diving contest. Spring vacation and loads of fun and then back to school and work. This time it wasn’t so hard because the end is near and you didn't plan to go to school much anyway. (Dr. Anderson had other plans.) Naturally home life wasn’t so good because the report cards came through the mail on the wrong day and the folks began to sec the light. Another true sign of spring was the entrance of dogsintothe school study hall and class rooms. They came and wc all thought that summer was really approaching. We were fooled all right because snow flurries made a late entrance late in April. Even the Iowa tall corn was a little late in getting started and all on account of the weather. So much for the tall corn. Then there was the day when wc finally began to sec the light; and that can Ik taken literally. You could even try to imagine yourself out in the sun some place getting a super tan, or swimming, or speeding across a lake with water spraying out on 56the sides behind. Hut that’s all wet because I know that you didn’t think anything of the kind in a study hall with the birds chirping their lungs out in a tree somewhere near by. The river rose and fell and we saw an almost miracle happen — we probably won’t sec the river rise like that again in the next forty years. On May 1st the Music Department did a swell job with the musical show. U. High Lights of ’41 and every one had a lot of fun both in working in it and going to it. Who will ever forget that swell dance troupe of beauties? Then there were the days when the girls were all dressed up to entertain the mothers at the Mothers’ Teas. Sexton began to yell for the copy and busy fingers begin to figure out different ways to write things. As you can sec they were very different. And then the seniors had to go through Health Service again in May — that was a dirty trick, letting us practically graduate and then having the "works" again. And the J. S. That junior class did a magnificent job on the night of May 21st. Remember the flowers, formats, and the orchestra? Hut before then the seniors had begun to rush and rush — the fellow who made up the March of Time forgot so much. There was Class day, the picnic, the Haccalaureate and finally — finally Commencement. It ended here — but not really. It will never end, for we'll always remember the events of the Order of the Year of 1943. We Hereby Nominate For LI. High’s Own Army- Chief of Military Police.......................Wow Hastings, because of his experience as school policeman. Top Sergeant...................Mr. James E. Curtis, because of his ability to make the boys stand around. Chief of Censors......................Miss Eleanor Marlowe, because of her supreme ability as linguist.

Head of Naval Intelligence Ginnie Aldbn, because of her capability in collecting U. High gossip for the school paper. jeep Driver.........................Drexel Henderson, because of his vast experience with Model T Fords. 57Promotions for the Deserved I T would l»c impossible to list all the people in U. • High who deserve mention lor their cooperation and demonstration of school spirit during this year, but here arc the names ot’ just a few of the many who should Ik promoted in rank next September. First of all wc have Joanne Bouthilct who was one of the lirst girls in the Girls’ Club Cabinet to turn over the clues of the sophomore class. Besides that. Joanne did fine work for the Breeze and for the all school musical she did the make up. . . . Then there is Marge I Ictfield who should get mention for her cvcr-ready humor and her evcr-rcady smile. . . . Gerry McMcckin made a name for herself in her first year here. Gerry did a swell job of handling the sophomore Mothers’ Tea.... Don Cruzcn, president of the A.V.O.C., was certainly cooperative in doing whatever was asked of him in the line of showing movies. . . . Bede Clapp and lack Mork were just perfect about going out for school productions. Who will ever forget them in the all school musical? Introducing a new cheering yell was one of Phyllis Kllcrman’s contributions during the year. And it was a swell yell, Phyllis. . . . Little Mary Gccpfert of the freshman class was certainly ever-present to represent her class at the Senate meetings. And she handled her class’s money very well, too. . . . lerry Baer, David Fleming, and Jerry Petraborg certainly could l c comp red to the Merry Macs (without the girl). Those kids really have something and here’s U S 0 Benefit Show Taking the place of U. High’s traditional carnival and operetta was the all-school musical—V. High Light of 194}. Not only were there eighty-seven students represented in the performance but several faculty members also helped. George Blake. Jack Kigler. anti Gil Friedell headed the script writers and they turned out some unusually humorous dialogue. Bede Clapp and Jack Mork also wrote script anti acted as Masters of Ceremonies during the second act of the show and the audience donated much money to the U. S. (). when Mork and Clapp went through the audience. With only two weeks of rehearsal the show was put on on May 1st in the Music Auditorium. The first part of the show was devoted to showing school scenes where various clubs were trying to raise hoping they hang on to it during the coming years. It was good to sec Paul Berrisford back here again and Paul slid good work in the English assembly and in Ever Since Eve. . . . Virginia Alden did a swell job of collecting money for the social service committee for the Christmas party. And while talking about that we should give due credit to Susie Ncsbit for her great work on the Thanksgiving baskets. . . . Eddie Briggs did a magnificent job of directing the junior class through a most difficult thing — a wartime J. S. . . . Jeanne Furncll kept the school well informed on the new dance steps — anti could she ever tlo them herself. . . . Nancy I lolmes, as committee chairman, handled the J. S. nicely and saw to it that all had a good time. Nanette Parks has always shown school spirit and she did a swell job in the all school musical, in the assemblies, and was always there to help on the Mothers’ 'Peas. . . . Jimmie Bray was always on hand to take pictures for the Bisbila anti so was Bob Cranston, who, by the way, has worked hard this year on just about everything. . . . Ever Since Ere received a lot of attention from Janie Gavcr and Janie surely did a first class job on the Breeze. . . . I lowie Johnson did fine work on the golf team — we wouldn’t Ik surprised to sec him turn professional some day. . . . Patrick Sexton always supplied the witty answers. . . . Bev 1 lowcy’s work publicizing school activities was appreciated by everybody. money to help with the War Effort. The second part of the show was the actual show they decided to put on for the benefit of U. S. (). A spectacular feature of the show was the U. Highettcs’ drill which included a song and tap number done by twelve of U. High’s glamour girls. The gay nineties scene was most colorful with actors dressed in straw hats, and actresses dressed in bustles, leg of mutton sleeves, cut-away coats and plaid petticoats. Old time songs wc re-sung by the reviewers. All the scenes were written by students and the back stage work, the costumes, and the make-up were taken care of by U. 1 ligh students. Both the cast anil audience enjoyed the show and appreciated the fine work of Mr. Nickerson, who directed the show. 5XI. Phy. Ed. Pro9ram 2. German Club Frown Day 3. Archimedes at Assembly 4.

Seriously, though, rationing certainly has cut a big hole in the schemes of the mice and men around the halls. Now. since this is such a serious problem, we had better discuss it calmly and sensibly. Come, kiddies, gather around your uncle's knee and well have a nice quiet talk — and drop those blackjacks, you little darlings! First we shall discuss the tire and gas situation. Have your tires been down at the inner tubes lately? Have you been caught with your gas tank down? Is the air beginning to show through your tires? Is it? Well, isn't that too darn had. We all have our problems, you know. Or didn't you? Well, that’s neither here nor there, and I’d like to know where the heck it's gone to. However, to return to the subject in hand, which is getting pretty sticky by now because it was in the hand so long, have you noticed how the streetcars arc bulging at the gills with U. High students who formerly rode to school in their cars? Well, I haven't either, and I want to know where those jerks arc siphoning their gas from. Our neighbors recently found a pipe line built in from their gas tank to ours, and they were a hit irritated. My, it's cool and peaceful here in this cell. Now that we have disposed of the tire situation intelligently and thoughtfully, we will proceed to the question of meat rationing. Remember the time the English class got together and had such a grand barbeque? We didn't realize Mr. Carlsen would be so tough, though. I'm still spitting out buttons. And has anyone noticed how meatless the meals at Shevlin have become? Whenever a nice, young, innocent frankfurter pokes its silly head over its napkin, it is immediately swamped by students and faculty alike, all shouting their war chant. “We want Meet.” You see, even the faculty can’t spell too well. Life has gotten so complex. I’m even casting a speculative eye at my dog. Ahhh. Roast cocker on toast. And those little red stamps! After a session with those I'm ready to retire to Sing Sing for a rest. Some of our transportation problems have been solved by bikes. However. I wish to extend a warning to all those drips who lock theirs so people can’t have a nice, healthful bike ride after lunch. Those haggard, worn children who drag themselves in at about ten in the morning must be the bike riders. Though I’ve heard mention of sugar rationin'', I haven't noticed any rationing in the glances of some of the gals around here when they glance up at their swains. I o you know? Or don’t you? They say a bird in the hand is worth two in the meat market, and I guess that applies today, too. Food is getting so scarce kids are hanging around outside the home cc room with mayhem in their eyes. So far only two casualties have been reported. It's all very maddening. The children have been looking much more famished than usual. Have you seen that lean and hungry look Memphis displays? Coffee rationing certainly has hit U. High hard. We’ve heard Miss Marlowe is even growing her own. And the tardies—even Uncle Billie’s Morning Round-Up and Gagfest doesn’t do the trick, and what with alarm clocks disappearing like the winter snow, many arc oversleeping. At least that’s what it says here. One good thing about rationing, it provides plenty of excuses. “You see, sir, my tire got flat,” or “I had to go down to the store to get a pound of butter and you know how long it takes to count those tickets?" Well. I'm sure you get the idea — which is more than I do. 60I. Letter Day 2. Seventh Grade Leaders 3. Famished Men 4. "Way Down Yonder in the Cornfield" 5. Spring Day With The Sophs 6.

High troop train was just alx ut to leave the Union Station carrying the members of the 1941 senior class to different branches of the armed services. As the majorettes twirled and strutted their stuff, all the former U. Highites hung from windows and shouted farewells. As loan Murray left for the WAACs, and Bob Pearson for perpetual K.P. duty, and the rest of the class for their posts, they admonished those left behind to care for their most prized possessions they were leaving at U. High. Marge Boberg leaves her baby hair-cut to Barb Critchficld. To Marge Hctficld, Wow Hastings casts his cvcr-ready wit. Pat Knight gives her long hair to Jeanne Purnell. Jim Stone doffs his swimming crown to Jimmy Bray, who will take over all the diving championships. Barb King and Jean Kinsey reluctantly leave the U. High service Hag at the mercy of next year’s class. Barb Sidney is still looking around for someone to leave her geometry book with. (Maybe Barbara Pligelman would want it.)

Bill Burn hopes that Jack Bohlig inherits his classy clothes. Shirley Thorne leaves her long fingernails to anyone with a good file. Ixirry Clark leaves his place on the record machine to somebody that has some new needles. Howie Johnson will gi c his smooth golf technique to Tom Parrish, who has considerable of his own anyway. Gil I'ricdcll leaves, promising to submit his well pol-ished apple to John Buchta who ate his own when rationing became effective. (1 Jungry little devil, isn't he?) Hill Jenkins wills his place in the Bridge to “Pots” Amberg. Gwen I’arkc leaves her "Southern Charm” to her sister, Jo-Ann. Then we have Jane Gaver, who leaves school after sixth period. . . . Bette I let field donates the one-and-only-stomp to Betty Jane Locke. Joyce Tucker leaves her artistic ability to Kay Quigley, while Bob Pearson and Paul Schucncmann leave their gay spirits to Dick Gchlcn. Janet Anderson leaves her chemistry book to Mr. Gjcrdc. (I Ic’s the only one who can understand it.) Bill Boquist leaves all of his late slips to Delna lies sessen and Gloria Van Allen. Audrey Thori leaves her Cretin ring. ... on her finger. Gloria Tanz leaves her beautiful clothes to Dee IX c Ahrens, and 'led Hasbrouck donates his to some worthy cause. Bev Thunc leaves her quiet charm to Pat Harty (who has plenty right now). Willy Schmidt and Lowry Nelson leave their textbooks to Bev Brown and Betty Rydcll (two who will enjoy them). Ruth Ann Pcaster leaves her saddle-shoes to someone who hasn't a pair, and Dale Michel leaves his to the “Barefoot Boy." (Stuart Reedy.) Dave Cole submits his bag of tricks to Howie Barrow’s, and Jim Medof leaves his A.V.O.C. technique to Tom Joseph. Richard Sturre wills his photographic equipment to Don Sage. John Anderson leaves his basketball to Bob Cranston and Eddie Briggs. Frank Harris gives the key to the strong hox to Jim Kamiskc and George Blake. Dave Huhhell leaves his name printed on his locker so that the kid who uses it next year won't forget him without a struggle. (Any kind of struggle.) Ernie Rider leaves his hot swing dancing to his sister, Audrey (she’s the only one who can follow him). Bunny Dunn leaves her biology hock to someone who has the strength and equipment to erase Sime's name from under all the bug-pictures. Mary Sexton leaves her "Bis" to anyone that can read. (She’s been reading mine to me three nights in a row now.) Jean Lxarned leaves her scat in speech to someone who likes to sit down. Drex Henderson leaves “His Car" to someone with gas and four tires. Bev Howey gives her paint brush to Susan Ncsbil. John Allen leaves his swell personality to Bede Clapp. Bob Sinclair leaves the morning U. High bus to the guy that gets up in the middle of the night to let the cat out. (That must Ik Don Knapp.) Bob SjKar leaves it to Elly Nuwash and I'aul Berrisford to carry on the Central communications. Pat Sexton leaves his cvcr-ready grin and wit to Jack Mork. Cecelia Lynch leaves her pretty hands and her dainty way to Courtney Burton, who has three more years to put hers to work.
