 UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL MINNEAPOLIS. MINNESOTA 19 BISBILA 44 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASSThe circus has come to town and just outside the big top preparations for the grand march are under way. The yelis of the trainers, the hurrying back and forth of all the performers, and the bright costumes create an exciting atmosphere. Inside the tent anticipation runs high as the eager audience watches and listens to the vendors calling their wares. But perhaps before we start, a fuller explanation of the circus theme for our yearbook should be given. We chose it because we felt that in its gayety it was a part of high school life. Just before final exams maybe a struggling student will think high school is anything but a circus, yet we feel that looking back, our graduates will remember the gay and carefree times, the thrill of first contacts with the unfamiliar. With a little imagination, the atmosphere of a circus — exciting and novel — will seem to predominate in their memories of their good old high school days. But now the show is about to begin. The top performers are about to start the grand march; and so, with no more delay, on with the show!cJleAe'A.

To Mr. Glaydon Robbins, University High School's new assistant director, the seniors of 1944 dedicate this Bisbila. They owe him a true debt of gratitude for his untiring efforts to make their last year at U. High a memorable one. Friendly, understanding, and with a broad viewpoint, Mr. Robbins rated A-1 with the entire student body. All of U. High, both students and faculty, are sorry that Mr. Robbins will not be back next year, but sincere wishes for success in his new position go with him.TAMERS0 . G. Letter And non at hit detk. 7o the Se+tiosti. oj 1944 A few short days after this 1944 Bisbila becomes your own. you. Class of 1944. will be U. High alumni. Think for a moment of the four or six years spent in U. High's halls and library, in classrooms with U. High teachers. Do the events seem no longer to be part of your life — but memories? There were lunches in Shev-lin (or Dayton's), a coke at the Varsity, a football championship, the book you read for Miss Handlan, that session in the office with the administration. These things are not memories. They were your life and your education. In Harvard's or Vassar's halls, in a P-40 cockpit, or on a destroyer s deck you will solve that equation, pull out of that dive, or launch that torpedo better for the years at U. High. It is in this faith, that you will do a better job for your years with us, that your teachers have worked, and in which I shall soon hand you your diplomas. So remember us with affection. We have done our best for you, and now we wish that the best may continue to be yours. G. LESTER ANDERSON 9+tjjCSimcitia+t Se uUee. Mr. Clayton Gjerde, as the director of the Personnel Department, helps the students with their problems. The war has increased Mr. Gjerde's tasks for he now has to advise the boys in regard to the armed services as well as to future occupations. In the course of his duties, he conducts the Iowa achievement tests, aptitude tests, and interest tests. Mrs. Lois Turner advises the feminine performers at U. High. Whether it is a date to the J.S. or an "A" ticket in their studies that bothers the girls, she lends a helping hand. She also advises Girls' Club and Acme, besides being able and willing to help the girls plan their future education and occupations. 6 PERSONNEL: Mr. Gjerde. Mn. Turner.StuAesit ManaCfe il 'httdeA, the fli(j Vop - The student managing body of the big show at University High is known to the cast as the Senate. This group lays down the rules by which the performers abide. The Senate with its Ringmaster. Mr. George McCutcheon, meets each Thursday during the activity period. According to the constitution of the Managers, representatives and alternates are elected by the members of each class in May to serve for the following performance. Each of the Junior High classes is allowed one senator and one alternate. The sophomores are represented by two representatives with an alternate for each. The junior and senior classes, as the oldest and largest in the school, each have three representatives and three alternates. The officers are nominated by the new Senate each spring. The candidates give their campaign speeches during an all-school assembly program, amongst the dinosaurs and other prehistoric monsters of the Natural History Museum. Following these speeches elections are held in which the entire student body chooses the president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer of the Senate for the next year. The officers of this year's Senate were Ed Briggs, president; Bill McGee, vice-president; Mary Emslie. secretary; and John Buchta, treasurer. This year the Senate was again active in the Northwest Federation of Student Councils. They sent two representatives. Ed Clapp and Mary Goepfert, and Mr. McCutcheon, their adviser, to the Federation meeting which was held at Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis during the latter part of April. One of this year's major events was the Senate-sponsored Homecoming dance. Following the tradition of the Senate, vice-president Bill McGee was chairman of the Homecoming Committee. The second successful showing of the U. Highlites was given this year under the guiding hands of the Senators. To help the Juniors finance the annual Junior-Senior Prom, the Senate gave them the High-lite ticket-sale concession which carried with it seventy-five per cent of the net proceeds. By a new rule passed in the Senate this year, club charters were issued in May to expire next year. The purpose of these charters is to protect the audience from operators of unlicensed side-shows and exhibits. SENATE—4th ROW: Mclicr, Perks. G. Petraborg, C.

Through his work in the AVOC. showing movies and playing records, he is getting good experience for realizing his ambition of becoming an aeronautical engineer. Bob took part in the U. Highlites in addition to the AVOC. Before he came to U. High Bob attended Concordia Junior College. WINIFRED PHELPS Winnie came to U. High and beat us all by leaving during the fall quarter for the University. She is one of those people who arc gifted with both personality and brains. While she was at U. High Winnie made many friends and we were all sorry to see her go but look forward to seeing her next year. ROBERT PIRSIG Meet the owner of the original "zoot hat", which gave him fame. Bob's experiments in the chemistry lab also earned him renown as the mad scientist. Bob is one of those boys who was a sophomore one year and a senior the next and still found time for such activities as German Club. Science Club, and an editorship on the Bisbila Board (Feature editor). ROBERT NEWCOMB Everyone knows Bob and he will always be remembered for his good spirit. He kept himself busy with the Science Club, German Club, Camera Club (of which he was president), Football, Golf, and Basketball teams. Pep Club, and the U. Highlites. He came from Roosevelt High, Seattle, Washington, in his sophomore year, and has medical ambitions. LILLIAN ANN NUWASH Elly shows what she thinks of U.

Committee, Library Board, Graduation Committee, and U. Highlites, Nan has made an outstanding record. MARGERY PIEPER Toddy is her name, as everyone knows. Her subtle humor is as funny as they come. She has serious thoughts, however, about the German Club (of which she is vice-president), Dramatic Club, Acme, Bisbila Board, Senate, Stage Force, Homecoming Committee, J. S. Committee, U. Highlites, Knitting Club, Graduation Committee, and the Operetta. GEORGE RANDOLPH George is familiar to all of us through his work as a page.

In addition to wrestling his activities included U. Club, Senate, and secretary of Hi-Y. 17STUART REEDY Stu's personality will get him far if the way he has gotten along at U. High is any indication. He was the sports editor of the Campus Breeze this year. In his sophomore and junior years he was on the wrestling team. Stu has also taken an active part in the Dramatic Club, the Stage Force, the Highlites, and has been treasurer of Hi-Y.

Pat was a member of the Sketching Club and this year at U. High, her time has been taken up with Dramatic Club. Typing Club, and Bisbila. ED HANLON Ed, who is now a member of the United States Army Air Forces, came to U. High during his junior year, hailing from Shattuck Military Academy. He was outstanding as a two-year man on the football team and a faithful and rugged member of the Boys' U. Club, Hi-Y. and the swimming team. GUY CLEVELAND Guy Cleveland has been a popular member of U. High for four and one-half years. He joined our class in the seventh grade and stayed until the tenth when he left for another school. He came back this year to U. High, but unfortunately in March he had to leave for the Army. Our best wishes go to Guy. Pait the ftevieivi+Uf Stand Twelve years ago we started out to get an education: Each year we spent nine months for school and three for our vacation. But even from the very start we pictured with elation The time, the setting, and the place of our own graduation. In grammar school a Senior’s smile would leave us hypnotized: Each freshman picked a senior for his own to idolize. As sophomores it finolly seemed that we were recognized. And then as Juniors all our dreams were almost realized. At last as seniors now we have discovered, in the fall Our team came out as champions the very top of oil: And Homecoming was wonderful, if you will please recall For you feel the best if your team is the one that holds the ball. With winter came the Highlites. and no matter what our age We'll recall the fear ond joking that went on behind the stage. When each new Breeze was given out we studied every page. Seeing who liked who and what was new and just what was the rage. Spring came and went so quickly with so many things to do Like the prom, the play, the banquet—but to end this short review It doesn't quite seem possible, it doesn't quite seem true That our final year is over and our high school days are through. As seniors, to the faculty, we say before we leave We thank you for the many things you’ve helped us to achieve: And to all the underclassmen, we sincerely believe That you will have os much fun as you've helped us to receive. 19Se+tian.

Jerome, in the Music Auditorium. The plot of this play involves the marriage of Fanny [Nan Parks) to Vernon Wetherell (John Amberg). unaware of the fact that he is Lord Bantock of Rutlandshire. Further complications arise when Fanny discovers that the servants at Bantock Hall are her own dominating relatives from whom she ran away when she was young. The struggle of Fanny to take her proper place as mistress of Bantock Hall creates amusing situations, but everything ends on a happy note. Friends and critics of the senior stars agreed that the presentation was a truly professional one. One high spot of the performance was a specialty dance, arranged and introduced into the script by Barbara Jensen. 20C D L-LJ CD- Come one, come all, and see the show, The parade is formed and ready to go, The tent is up with banners flying, The colorful vendors their wares are crying.

Four eighth graders took part in this program. Of course the older midgets did other things besides work. They had several parties including one on Hallowe'en and another before one of the U. High basketball games. The smallest addition to U. High's show, the seventh grade, also did its share. They worked for the Red Cross by making cartoon books and scrapbooks. With a start like this Midgets should be giants in the act before many years have passed. Their class sponsors tell us their activities have already put them well on the way. 22Robert Setter.............. Joyce Tankenoff ............ Richard Kuhn............... Lenorc Paper...............

It was complete with the traditional man hunt, in which the desperate gals chased the reluctant men. Another highlight came when the Mothers of the freshmen were invited to tea on February 16th. Since the theme was Washington's Birthday, tradition called for patriotic name tags and invitations. Re- freshments consisted of cherry pie. tea and cookies. Music and a short play made up an interesting program. A special activity which won fame for the Tumblers came when the school wide bond-selling contest was held during the 4th war loan drive. Since the junior high sold the most bonds, four freshmen (Tankenoff, Setzcr, Firth, and Melzer) were chosen to appear on the Radio Quiz of the Twin Cities. NINTH GRADE—3rd ROW: Avrick, lobnitx.

These young Jugglers proved their originality in their assembly program when they presented a radio drama, Letter to Bertchesgaden.' Many of the Jugglers took part in other assemblies and in the U. High-lites. Off-stage these energetic performers demonstrated a talent for fun when they gave a class party after which they attended the all-school play. Another important social event on the class calendar was the Mothers’ Tea held in February. At the end of the winter quarter the troupers were sorry to lose one of their managers, Miss Margaret Day. but were glad when Miss Olive Prine stepped in to help them. Big billings are surely in prospect for these sophomore Jugglers. Imogcnc Boberg.............. Alan Rice................... Courtney Burton............. Mary Goepfert...............

They slid down the wire in streaming glory when they were put in charge of war bond sales during the Homecoming Queen contest — $10,000 worth of bonds were sold. On May 19. the tight-rope walkers found the main tent spotlight fastened on them again as they opened the Grand March of one of U. High's shyest J.S.'s. Between these two main events, members of the Class of 45 were often in the public eye. They entertained their Mothers at a South American tea and amused the school at the junior assembly. They proved their financial ability, too. by handling ticket sales for the U. Highlites. JUNIOR CLASS—TOR: 4th ROW: R. Johnion. Gage. P. JetneM, Chamberlain, Baker, lerkman, Hcrrcid. 3rd ROW: D.

Every other Friday the feminine members of our show who performed the duties of the Girls' Club Cabinet and Council, met to make plans for girls activities. These included planning parties and meetings. and discussing matters concerning the girls in the circus. The ring leaders were Wary Emslie. president; Jean CjofUieA. SItCHAJ. One of the concessions our circus prides itself on is the Gopher Hi-Y, U. High's chapter of the YMCA. Its aims are on the same high level as those of the larger organization and this year the big service project was the collection of funds to buy sports equipment for servicemen. Cranston, vice-president: Evelyn Sexton, secretary; Betty Rydell, treasurer; Mrs. Turner, adviser. The council consisted of the chairman of each of seven committees: entertainment, program, social service, friendship, publicity, ways and means, and Red Cross. Representatives from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes also served on the council. sored a dance after a basketball game and planned a large spring party. The organization of a softball team was the source of a lot of fun and enthusiasm for the club members. Officers at the year’s end were Paul Scheunemann, president: Ralph Nelson, vice-president: George Randolph, secretary; and Stu Reedy, treasurer. Two former officers.

Its activities helped all the newcomers feel at home in the school. The leading ladies also had a booth in the Shevlin Tent where war bonds and stamps could be purchased during lunch hour. In order to be elected to membership in this troupe. a girl must have given faithful service to U. High. She must be a good citizen and leader, and do acceptable work in her classes. In the front ranks of the leoding ladies this year were Mary Emslie. president: Barbara Critchfield, vice-president: Nan Parks, secretary: and Pat Harty. treasurer. Miss Handlan and Mrs. Turner, sponsors, called Acme formations. 28Pnxuyiam-SelleAA Events under the big tent at U. High during 1943-44 were faithfully and originally programmed by the Campus Breeze, edited by a staff headed by Nora Brinlt. Feature page editor was Joanne Bouthilet. Barbara Critchfield and Ed Briggs were editors of the first page. Louise McElroy and Jim Kamiske had charge of the fourth page, and Stu Reedy and Whitey Nelson acted as sports editors. Virginia Hiniker filled the position of exchange editor, and Jack Rigler and George Blake edited the special features. Members of the editorial staff and their reporters received training in newspaper technique from the Breeze sponsor. Mr. G. Robert Carlsen. SfumAo-'iA of the Sltatu A colossal show deserves to be permanently end colorfully remembered — so thought the members of the Bisbila Board, sponsors of this record of school life at U. High. Not a small part of the main show was the job of publishing the Bisbila. as the hardworking editors pictured will testify. Their frequent sessions are a matter of record. The editors had the assistance, in both work and fun, of such underclassmen as Kathleen Quigley. Phyllis Maurer, Evelyn Sexton. Nancy Rigler. Mary Goep-fert, and Pat Mortenson.

The Circus Photographers made up one of the circus' main service organizations. Chief cameramen Garrett Gruner, president of the Camera Club, and Jack Page, vice-president, were often seen wandering about the halls, cameras in hand. They were helped with their administrative duties during the year by Secretary Jesness. and Treasurer Hetfield. Club meetings were spent in discussions of photo- graphic problems. A special dark room staff handled most of the technical work on pictures for other school organizations. The personnel of other sideshows are indebted to the Circus Photographers and their adviser. Mr. Duard Laging, for pictures of school events. The big show of the year for the Camera Club itself was the presentation of a salon in which the work of each member was exhibited.

Jla+uhf+ne+t The crew of circus handymen was bigger and more enthusiastic this year than ever before. These volunteer members of the Library Board performed many jobs such as shelving, arranging periodicals, charging books, keeping records of reserve books, and sending out the daily reminders of overdue books. In this way they gave valuable assistance to the director of the handymen. Librarian Jean Gardiner Smith, at the same time that they learned how a library operates. Other students and faculty appreciated their service, and realized that their co-operation and efficiency made them a great asset to the circus. 30 The newest concession in the circus this year was the Typing Club formed to serve teachers, students, and school organizations by doing all typing they need. It consisted of members of the typing class. The club, although it sounded like a three ring circus when operations were in full swing, has functioned in a most systematic manner with the help of its ring- masters Nancy Holmes, president: Jeanne Furnell, vice-president; Carol Koenig, secretary-treasurer. It had a publicity committee consisting of Barbara Henly. chairman, Jackie King. Susan Nesbit. and Marge Hetfield. to publicize its services and activities. Miss Phillis Vanderschaegan acted as head trainer for the keyboard gymnasts. TYPING CLUB—ird ROW: Hetfield, I. J«n «n. Breideflb«ch, Rider. Henly. 8. Bcrgquut, Ko «rik. 2nd ROW: Cmelle.

John Buchta as secretary, and Jim Kamiske as chairman of the com- mittee which qualified applicants for membership, these electrical wizards demonstrated efficiency plus. Besides showing movies and playing records in classes, the club set up a fire alarm system and provided noon hour music.

GliasUot Race'll It was a difficult face but the Latin Club Charioteers really won their laurels this year. Their goal was a definite knowledge of Roman history which they acquired under the master hand of Miss Marlowe, club adviser and Latin teacher. During individual class meetings at regular class hours, the racers got a real idea of how the Romans lived under the reign of Caesar. On the lighter side of their study were the programs the students put on once a month. They practiced parts outside of class and presented Roman plays and talks on Roman history, often closing their meetings with refreshments. Leading in the home-stretch were Mary Emslie. president; Mary Goepfert. vice-president: Joan Endress, secretary; and Ray Harris, treasurer. JleifLfyiCfeSi MeAAe One of the most popular booths on the grounds was the one where the German language was put through its repertoire of tricks. The Club went theatrical this year, and gave plays for the P.T.A. and for its own meetings. Miss Emma Birkmaier, club director, coached the plays, one of which was Wo 1st Das Baby?" and helped the German exhibitors give a tea where they and their faculty guests spoke nothing but Deutsch. Club leaders, president, Tom Joseph; vice-president, George Blake; treasurer, Jeanne Lauer, and secretary. Stanley Gabay. helped this foreign exhibit create a great deal cf interest in Geiman literature and customs. 32JleA Masuo-nett i fy'iancatiei. On the grounds of the big show was the old French concession whose actors dispense French drama. French food, and French music. At the first meeting, the French Club elected Jean Scammon. president; Barbara Henly. vice-president; and Joanne Bouthilct, secretary-treasurer. Under their guidance, the club has succeeded in fulfilling its purpose, which is to Pan-Ame ucciH. ZtcltihU Flags of twenty-one American republics decorated the tent of this foreign exhibit, the Spanish Club, which appeared in the big show for the first time last year. This season it has joined the national Pan-American Club and is registered in national headquarters at Washington, D. C. At the meetings the senores and senoritas learned more about our neighbors and how they could promote better relations bring French students together, present French plays, and learn something about French customs. This year in addition to having some parties and several plays, the club has given variety to its meetings by playing French games and serving French delicacies for refreshment. Mademoiselle Ellen di Giambattista acted as manager for Les Marionettes. between the countries in this hemisphere. Club members co-operated to put on an assembly, gave some Spanish plays, and ended the year with a party. Senor Ed Clapp opened the meetings with a buenas dias"; Senorita Jeanne Swoboda, vice-president. Joan Tilden. secretary, and Liz Burn, treasurer, consulted with Sponsor Birlcmaier on affairs of the exhibit. FRENCH CLUB—3rd ROW: Daubncy, Collier, Levy. Quigley, Beggt. 2nd ROW; Neibit.

With five basses, five tenors, eight altos. and thirteen sopranos, Director James Nickerson had material for a small but effective choral group. The Choir met in two sections for practice, on Fridays having a meeting of the combined group. Chosen from the Choir was a Madrigal group of Although there was no calliope, almost every other instrument was represented in the circus band this year. Under the direction of Mr. James Nickerson any person in the big tent interested or talented in music studied the instrument of his choice. The school purchased several new instruments for the use of the music students and provided them with a eight voices. The Madrigal singers were Barbara Critchfield, Pat Mortenson. Pat Hunt, Dave Fleming, Gerry McMeeken, Dorothea Jensen, Bill Mel-ham. and Bob Setzer. The Choir sang in the school Christmas Program on December 16th. in the U. Highlites. and in the 18th District Music Festival late in April. These note jugglers did their share to enliven U. High's 1943-44 performance. brand new sound proof room to practice in. Various ensembles were made up and their talents put to use in assembly programs. At the Christmas assembly and Senior Baccalaureate Service various members of the music group, as well as other students who had studied with private instructors, served as soloists. 34- Cvp, The Senior High Dramatic Club is one of the oldest concessions in our circus. The membership is open to any person having dramatic ability or interest in the theater. Members of this concession have presented assemblies, plays, and programs within the club. The group meets twice a month under the leadership of Nan Parks, president: Jean Breidenbach. vice-president: Jack Rigler, secretary: and Barbara Critchfield. treasurer. Part of the meeting time is spent in rehearsals directed by the club sponsor. Miss Lorna Seabury. When Letters to Lucerne and U. Highlites' were presented the Club's make-up and costume committee did a splendid job as did the acting stars. [Ju+u i rJ'uu f%eAA The little performers of our show have been organized to give any midget possessing talent a chance to make good in the act. Under the guidance of Miss Lorna Seabury the little performers received expert advice on the fundamentals of drama and play production. Among the plays they presented were "Elmer ", ' The Stolen Prince and The Wed- ding". These plays were given at the Mothers Tea, at club meetings throughout the year, and at such occasions as the Girls' Club assembly where the midgets performed. Rehearsals were held regularly at club meetings called under the big top on alternate Mondays by president Clark and secretary Nulty. DRAMATIC CLUB—4th ROW: Rigler, Bohlig, L. Johnson.

Building up interest and enthusiasm at football and basketball games and promoting more school spirit in general was their function. The pep clubbers kept us all rooting together at the games, and they taught us some snappy new yells. Also we can thank the clowns for some entertaining assemblies, noon-hour pep fests, and the great new U. High fight song written by Mrs. Turner, club adviser. The pep clubbers started the year with a successful pow-wow and later put on a dance and party after one of the basketball games. Barb Critchfield leads the group as president. Don Cruzen takes over the gavel when Barb is absent. Tom Parrish keeps the minutes, and Elly Nuwash is club treasurer. PEP CLUB—4th ROW: Bt«ke, Hctficld, Bu»n, V.

The Club, whose purpose is to promote, maintain, and master sports during the year, began its schedule early in the fall by electing officers at its first meeting. Those honored were Dumas, chief barker; Amberg, vice-barker; Briggs, ticket taker; Tjossem, financial manager. The Club then held an initiation admitting those boys who had won letters in Football. During the winter quarter the Club volunteered for an assembly and put on a murder mystery written and directed by Jack Dumas and John Amberg. This spring the Club sponsored an athletic banquet for all boys who had won letters during the year. 36STRONG MEN »re wFIRST TEAM—BACK FIELO: T|o «m, Doyle, Brigs . Hanlon.

Underrated before the season and the underdog during most of the season, the light but fast U. High squad tumbled five of the six conference teams. The only loss was to Wayzata and the final result was a tie with Hopkins for the Conference crown. Coaches Oscar Haddorf and George McCutcheon reported a fine spirit of sportsmanship and co-operation among team members. Outstanding recognition should be given the members of the All-Conference team. The boys are chosen for all-around good playing and sportsman- Clapp blocks in the Robbinsdale gam . ship on the field. Ed Briggs was selected for the quarterback position because of his excellent generalship and punting average: Jack Tjossem for his excellent backfieid work; and Jack Dumas for his aggressive line play. Jim Bray was placed on the second team in recognition of his fine play and outstanding place kicking. Ed Hanlon was made quarterback on the second team in recognition of his remarkable play at the halfback position and his fleet-footed running. Next year's squad promises to give a good account of itself despite the loss of seven letter men by graduation. Coach Haddorf expects the fifteen underclassmen from this year's team to furnish a strong nucleus for the 44 gridders. SEASON S RECORD U. High..................13 Hopkins....................7 U.

Although the boys fought to equal that record, they had to be contented with 5 out of 6 when they lost a heart-breaker to Wayzata. They ended the season, however. tied with Hopkins for the Conference Championship. U. High was considered the underdog in the opener against Hopkins. The Little Gophers took the initiative and Ed Hanlon sparked his team to victory with two touchdowns. Our first home game was against Robbinsdaie on September 30. U. High was conceded a slight advantage. The score stood at 7-7 at the half and our attack pushed on at a terrific rate to beat the Robbins 27-7 by the final gun. The Little Gophers continued their winning streak to three when they trounced the Mound men to a 13-7 win, which was made possible by a 60 yard march in which Tjossem scored from the 8 yard line. Late in the game Hanlon culminated a 55 yard drive in an end sweep for the final score. St. Louis received the next pounding on a game which was a passer's paradise. Ed Hanlon flipped Ooylc and Dumas seem confused as Hanlon scores. two passes in quick succession to put us ahead 14-0. but the Parkers tallied making the score 14-7. U. High was primed for a fifth victory, going into Wayzata‘s camp favored to win, but when the final gun sounded. U. High was on the short end of a 12-6 score. The game was tied 6-6 when Elliot of Wayzata pulled a line buck off a punt formation and ran 60 yards for the final tally. The season closed with a 14-7 victory over Excelsior which won us the conference championship. The game was marked by Tjossem's running, and the passing combination of Hanlon to Tjossem which accounted for our tallies. FOOTBALL TEAM—3rd ROW: Tinker, Noreen, Jetnctl, J.

The team finished the conference schedule with a record of seven wins and five losses which gave the Little Gophers undisputed possession of third place. The team, led by Captain John Amberg. lost its first game to Excelsior, the conference champs. This defeat was followed by four consecutive victories over St. Louis Park. Wayzata. Robbinsdale. and Hutchinson (a non-conference game). The Gophers, who were voted as darkhorses in the conference championship, then toppled three times to Hopkins, 26-27; to Park 26-37; and to Excelsior. 23-32. Paced by Jack Tjossem, all-conference forward, the Haddorfmen whipped Mound twice. 48-29 and 39-38. A surprise defeat by Park was followed by a victory over Wayzata. 51-45. and a win from Robbinsdale. In the subdistrict tournament, the cagers met Robbinsdale. whom they had defeated twice previously in conference games. The game went contrary to all pregame forecasts and the Little Gophers found themselves on the short end of a 28 to 27 score when the gun sounded, ending the game and the basketball season. The first team this year consisted of four seniors. Jack Dumas. Ed Briggs. John Amberg. and Don Knapp; two juniors. Dick Herreid and Jack Tjossem: and a sophomore. John Rowland. These underclassmen will be combined with B squad members Howard Lorberbaum. Jerry Petraborg. Jerry Baer, George Petraborg. Pete Jesness. Paul Breckman.

'W'leltli+uj, Fighting against some of the state's toughest teams University High School battled through a season of 11 meets. At the beginning of the season the team lacked experience, having only one returning letter-man and four of lost year's squad. However, under the direction of Coach Bob Nering, the team was developed into a rugged outfit. The year's best record was held by Captain George Randolph who had 8 wins out of 11 matches for a Capt. Randolph toughens up on Nelson for the State. .727 average. Ralph Nelson, a four year veteran, won his matches as did Hillel Sweet and Larry Gage, both experienced men. Captain George Randolph and sophomore Allan Rice, a promising man for next year's team, were the only members of the team to fight through to the state meet. Randolph took a second in the 120 pound class in both the district and the regional, and in the state meet. Rice also took second in the district and regional but dropped to 5th in the state in the 145 pound weight class. In the squad good work was done also by Ray Harris, Dave Fleming, Bob Dworsky, Bob Nelson, Bob King, and Tom Bowyer. Next year's team, under the leadership of Captain elect Larry Gage, will have 7 out of the 11 of this season s squad and holds definite promise for a fine season. The grapplers won one meet each from University Farm School and St. Louis Park, tied Patrick Henry, lost once to Park and Washburn, and then took double defeats at the hands of Mound, Wayzata. and Robbinsdale.

'rJ'iacJz This year, with capable men in nearly every event and one of the best all-around squads U. High has had in the past several years, the Track team looked forward to a very successful season. On April first, the season officially opened with the Metropolitan meet. In this, U. High was represented by Larry Gage and Frank Seidel, in the hurdles: John Amberg in the 880 yd. run; Bede Clapp in the high jump: and Jack Tjossem in the pole vault. A total of 17 10 points was collected by Tjossem. who tied for fourth and Clapp, who tied for fifth. The first regular meet, with Stillwater, Hopkins and Robbinsdale, was held at Memorial Stadium the 21st of April. Although the U. High team placed third, they made a very promising showing. The second meet, on April 25th. also at the Stadium, was with St. Thomas Academy and Wayzata. This time, however, the Little Gophers came through to win with 67 2 points to St. Thomas’ 6H 2 and Way-2ata's 13. Since the Bisbila went to press right after this second meet, U. High's outcome in the Mound Relays, Carleton. District and Regional meets could not be printed. However the squad had already proven itself to be one of the best in the Lake District Conference. Gage hits hard. Jack Dumas—Discus, Shot Put, Low Hurdles. John Amberg—880 yard Run. Ed Clapp—High Jump, Broad Jump, 100 yard Dash, Relay. Ralph Hogan—880 yard Run, 440 yard Dash.

High's defending district champs started off the season in good form with a number of new prospects. The loss of Ernie Rider was felt heavily, but with superb playing by Bill McGee and steady support from the rest of the squad the team turned in a good record. Last year's veterans, McGee, Brown. Jesness, were the backbone of this year's squad but the new players brought home their share of the wins. Mr. Morton Keston took over the job of coaching the squad this year and guided the team through a gruelling season. At the beginning of each season there is an intrasquad tournament staged to rank the players according to their ability. It was carried out this year with as much gusto as usual. No regular practices were scheduled but each player practiced on his own. Home matches were played at the U. courts with the other matches played at the opponents’ schools. The team had to find competitors outside of the Lake Conference as only Park and Robbinsdale had tennis teams. The boys played this year with as much spirit as ever and finished the season very successfully. The Little Gopher's 1944 golf squad attempted to maintain the high standards of last year's team which walked away with the district and state golf championships under its wing. Golf fans will remember that last season Ed Briggs captured the district event with a brilliant 78 and Howie Johnson came in second. The pair then went on to place first and second in the state tournament. This time Howie came first followed by Ed. Since it was the first time two players from the same school had won first and second place, this amazing accomplishment made High school golf history. Although the 1944 team missed the ability and experience of Howie Johnson, it fell back on the strength of Eddie Briggs, with four years of former competition; John Amberg, with three; Tom Parrish, Larry Doyle, and John Bohlig, who played varsity competition last season. Matches this year were arranged with the best teams in the Twin Cities and an enviable record was made. The golfers aggressiveness and consistency won matches for them many time after their opponents built up an early lead. SEASON S RECORD U. High.................0 Deephaven...............5 U.

With military precision U. High boys were put through this year's physical fitness program. Coach Oscar Haddorf had the assistance of only one student teacher and a few members of the University Physical Education Department, but he still managed to give the boys a diversified schedule of athletic events. Seasonal sports, indoor gymnastics, military drills, and calisthenics were included in the roster. Also the coach found time to give the boys ASTP unit tests to see how they stacked up with the army men and University civilian students. Of course football was in the spotlight during the fall quarter. Relays and swimming, instructed by Nels Thorpe, also were included. With the coming of cold weather, indoor sports reigned supreme. Basketball, swimming, wrestling, and volleyball were tried by all the boys. Spring and fair weather brought soft ball and track work-outs. In all these athletic games, emphasis was placed on the fundamentals rather than on fancy playing, in an effort to give each boy a solid frame-work of knowledge and skill so that he could enjoy the sport in future. Besides the games, a great deal of work was done on indoor gymnastics — work-outs on bars, weight lifting, etc. — which was taught by Gordon Paska, a U. of M. gridiron veteran. Frequently throughout the year. Coach Haddorf retested the boys with the Army Specialized Training Program Unit Tests. These tests consisted of push-ups. pull-ups, 300 yard runs, squat jumps, burpees, and pick-backs. Also on a military note, and perhaps the most important regular activities of the boys’ physical education classes were the calisthenics and the Gopher Grass drills. Rigorous discipline coupled with the physical endurance tests soon taught the boys many aspects of good sportsmanship, which was one of the Coach's main goals. In line with this, also, was the appointment of Squad leaders from the football team to help give the boys more individual attention and relieve somewhat the shortage of student teachers. All the emphasis on the military had a reason, for it conditioned juniors and seniors for future careers in the army or navy. Under this type of training each boy's physical weaknesses were soon diagnosed and attempts made to remedy them.

The big events in which the seventh, eighth, and tenth graders take part are held three days a week and those for the ninth graders, five days. During the fall, the sports spotlight was focused on soccer. When the cold weather drove the girls inside the tent, the stage was set for a three ring circus featuring folk-dancing, volleyball, and calisthenics. During the first half of the winter quarter, talents were exploited in basketball. For the remaining half of the quarter, all eyes turned toward the three traditional rings: tumbling was the main attraction of the first, modern dancing of the second, and badminton in the third. And came the spring bringing tennis, softball, and badminton. The feminine members of the ninth grade were enrolled in a health education class two days a week, where they learned about the United States Public Health Service, cosmetics and their ratings in Consumers' Research, and contagious diseases. Friday, intramural day. aquatic stars chosen from the cast engaged in swimming. On Friday intramural days, during the first quarter, a choice of badminton or golf was offered to tumblers who desired additional exercise. In the second quarter, the girls could engage in basketball. Tennis and badminton followed in the last quarter. Other optional activities were available on these intramural days. One of the main attractions of the show was the swimming meet held by the Friday intramural group on March 3. The victors of the ninth and tenth grade meet were led by Jonnie Martin, who took first honors in the side-stroke for form, the front crawl for speed, and the back crawl for speed. Betty Baer and Natalie Clark came in second and third respectively in the back crawl for speed. A program of exhibition diving was also presented by Natalie Clark and Jonnie Martin. The seventh and eighth grade winners were Betty Baer, front crawl and side stroke, and Sue Hirsh, side stroke. The surface diving event turned into a contest between sisters, Ruth and Nancy Rigler, with Nancy taking first honors. TOP—Baiket?

On the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds which, in other years on other fields, will bear the fruits of victory. —General Douglas MacArthur. Physical fitness is a commodity that rates high on the list of priorities today. How it may be obtained should be the concern of every growing boy or girl. Fitness means in its broadest sense health fitness, mental fitness, character fitness, social fitness, and physical fitness. In all kinds of athletic activity there is opportunity for boys and girls to develop the traits of fitness that will help make men and women of the kind we think of as real persons. Students who go in for sports experience the give and take of the rules of the game that are so like the rules of the game of life. Athletic activity as carried out through our sports, is an outstanding symbol of the very democracy we are fighting for.

High—opened in September with considerable growling from the animals. Reason: The Iowa tests were administered in large doses. However, the seals, lions, tigers, elephants and other beasts malting up the greatest conglomeration of animal acts in existence, were soon whipped into line by the tough new trainer. G. D. Robbins. On October 27. the trained Gophers downed their last opponent and won the Lake Conference football championship. Much of their success was attributed to their new ringmaster. Oscar Haddorf. The successful season was climaxed by the Homecoming Dance. On this occasion, the trained animals were released from their cages, the trainers left their whips at home, and the bare-back riders came down off their high horses to have a good time with the rest of the circus crowd. December was marked by intense activity in the main tent as the performers prepared for their quarter tests, with the sideshows drawing only slight attendance. February opened with a new side show — a gigantic war bond drive, won by the junior high cubs who bought $4,000 of the total $9,000 worth of bonds sold. As a reward, the cubs were allowed to perform a special act which was broadcast on the Quiz of the Twin Cities radio program. In May. the cubs were given a further reward — a day out at pasture, away from the big tent. February also saw the almost super-human efforts of all circus performers to get ready for their big performance of the year, the U-Highlights of 44. Script writers, dancers, gagmen — all mangled one another in an effort to get their particular acts done on time. The main show was given February 12 to a full house. The week ending February 17 was fraught with suppressed emotion. All the circus people tread cautiously and were careful what they said to their friends. Morton Keston. the only one of his kind in captivity, was expecting a little one. Although he hoped it would be a boy so that he could name it Arturo, he kept his cheery good humor when it turned out to be a girl. On February 22. gloom hung over the big tent like a black pail. The reason: Elaine left. She gave some petty, trumped-up excuse for leaving, claiming that she had gotten married or something. Anyway, the circus people who were accustomed to coming in — in the middle of an hour — to get a late slip felt that the big show had lost one of its star performers. At the end of the winter quarter. Miss Day. one of U. High's best trainers, left to get married. Miss Day was instrumental in teaching the sophomores to use English correctly. We all were in her class once, so we had oughta know. Everyone who had participated at all in sports was present at the big sports banquet on May 12. From all reports, the animals were well fed. The Junior-Senior Prom came in the middle of May. The Prom, which represented a whole year's effort on the part of the juniors, proved to be a swell new act which was enjoyed both by performers and a large and enthusiastic audience. The grand and gala parade which was a highlight of the evening's show was :ed by President Ed Clapp of the junior class. In June, plans were made to retire the older performers and animal acts. At Commencement and Baccalaureate. the old timers appeared for the last time under the sponsorship of the circus. On June 8. the big top was taken down for another year, the trainers got ready for their summer jobs, and the animals were turned loose until another circus season would roll around. 48I.

I have here a gigantic crystal ball, which you see before you. and by merely passing my hand over it slowly in a gyrating motion (in difficult cases, I use a wet rag) it reveals to me some of the most astounding secrets of the future. Some, 'tis true, will send you into the depths of despair, some will raise you to colossal heights. Before I proceed with this stupendous demonstration I will aslc the timid souls who are fearful of the future to step out and leave. ... Of those others of you who wish to remain. I will aslc absolute silence so that the prophecies I am about to make will come through the medium of the crystal ball, as inevitably as. well, a trained lion responds to the whip."
