How marry ot us, at onelgtigme ast-

'. l-ligh? A beautitul, spacious,
modern building with maybe
lthough we don't wish to raise any
talse hopesl a water tountain that
doesn't double tor a shower bath
nine-tenths ot the time.
Ah, dreamers, aren't we?
But did you know that while not
as yet in the blueprint stage, a new
building is actually on the way?
The old, tamiliar, green tiered walls
we seniors have loved so well will
soon be a thing ot the past.
As important as a new building
seems to all ot us, we, the seniors,
have begun to realize now that
another kind ot "building" is more
important-the building ot a
brighter, better World ot Tomor-
We know we'll not plan that world,
not build it, but we do know that
we. along with a lot ot other peo-
ple, must have a little part in the
kind ot world we shall have.
Our Bisbila, marking as it does the
completion ot our tirst big job,
might help remind us ot the "big
obs" in which we must share in

The seniors ot l945 dedicate this Bisbila to Mr. Gordon
M. A. Mork, University l-ligh Schools new assistant director.
Mr. Mork, who was our science teacher last year, has not
only served as principal but has retained the chairmanship
ot the science department and has even on occasion pinch-
hit as director ot our band and choir. The senior class is
gratetul to him tor making its graduation year one ot great
accomplishment and happy memories. if

up to and respect. As the director of U-High,

and is patient and understanding with all of our
problems. Our director was born in Nebraska, but
he received his graduate education in two differ-

ENIOR CLASS PLAY-TOP PICTURE: Lagersen, Bartholdi. 2nd PICT
Senior Class Play
Age old tradition was broken this year when the senior
class decided to present their class play during the
winter quarter, instead of in the spring. This change
enabled the seniors to participate in many more ot the
spring quarter activities which, in tormer years, they
were torced to give up because play rehearsals occu-
pied too much ot their time.
A committee composed ot class members and under
the supervision ot the class advisers, Mr. Gjerde and
Miss West, and the dramatics teacher, Mr. Brink, was
appointed to choose the play to be given. They de-
cided on "Growing Pains", an amusing three act play
concerning the troubles ot a tamily with two teen-aged
youngsters. The call tor tryout was well answered, but
because only eighteen persons were needed to till the
cast, many tuture actors and actresses were turned down.
For three weeks room 2lO was the scene ot rehearsals
every atternoon at 3:l5. At the end ot these seemingly
short weeks, "Growing Pains" was presented at the
Music Auditorium on Saturday, March seventeenth. The
audiences enthusiastic applause and praise proved it
ranked as one ot the best senior class plays pertormed
at U. l-ligh.
Credit tor the tremendous success ot the play goes not
only to the cast members but also to the director, Mr.
Brink, and to the hardworking committees who planned
and completed backstage and business preparations

The Class of '46
The eleventh grade has been active in school events
this year and its members have proved to be very able
leaders. They tool4 the responsibility ot being juniors
quite seriously, carrying out successtully their traditional
activities. The most important ot these, ot course, and
one ot the main events ot the year, was the J. S. The
junior-senior prom toox a lot ot planning and coopera-
tion, but it was one ot the best U. l-ligh has ever had.
There was a class party, too. The sleigh ride was a huge
success and the party turned out to be loads ot tun tor
all. It was held on February 25, at the Farm Campus.
Atter the sleigh ride the hospitality ot the Riglers was
enjoyed and appreciated by everyone.
The junior girls have cheered the teams jon which the
junior boys were well representedj on to victory all
through the tall and winter. As tor the athletes in the
class, they have done a bang-up job in tootball, baslcet-
ball, and wrestling. Next yearls teams should protit trom
the experience these boys have obtained.
Some tine talent in other lines is displayed in the class
ot 46. In tact, one ot the leads in "Seven Sisters" went
to Nancy Rigler. Other eleventh graders also played in
this school production, and when hlighlites rolled
around, many juniors were tound in the cast! When the
U. l-lighlites rolled around the juniors went all out. The
stage crew was made up ot juniors almost exclusively,
and junior talent was not lacking behind the tootlights.
The voices ot Jo French, Donna Daniels, Carol Macey,
and Lorand Tritter really helped to put the show over,
not to mention the grand job Alan Rice did on the piano.
The Mothers'fTea was a big event tor the girls. It gave
them all a chance to show ott their mothers as well as
their new clothes. An international theme was used.
The mothers were given name tags ot miniature tlags
and the centerpiece was a group ot international tlags.
Yes, the juniors ot i944-I945 have done wondertul worlc
and are loolcing torward to a successtul senior year.

Class of '47
Though only tive ot the members ot the original seventh
grade class remain, the sophomore class is full ot that
old U. High spirit. Mrs. Gayne, who also teaches tenth
grade English, and Mr. Anderson, who teaches biology,
The class chose Bob Setzer and Joyce Tankenott to rep-
resent them in the Senate as regular members, with
Steve Woltt and Henry Reedy as alternates. Joyce
Tanlcenoti and Helen Buchta were the class representa-
tives to the Girls' Club Cabinet and Council.
One main interest ot the class seemed to be dramatics,
judging from the large number ot sophomores in the
Senior Dramatic Club. The Class ot '47 was well repre-
sented in the cast ot "Seven Sisters", the all-school play
presented during tall quarter, and in the spring quarter
Near the beginning ot the year President Bob Setzer
appointed a committee to plan programs tor the enter-
tainment ot the class atter each class meeting. Records,
movies, and other types ot entertainment were pro-
vided by the enterprising committee.
On the social side, the sophomores also excelled. They
won't soon forget the class sleigh ride, held on the
Farm Campus. The whole class appreciated the Buchta
hospitality, where they were invited atterwards tor
Another important social event ot the year was the
sophomore Mothers' Tea, on February 28th. As gen-
eral chairman ot the tea, Helen Buchta appropriately
chose the theme ot the lion and the lamb, symbols ot
the month ot March so close at hand. The mothers were
entertained with a program ot musical talent planned
by Joan Conrad. Doris Allen gave a piano solo, Jim Mar-
vin a saxophone solo, and Pat Hunt sang Summertime.
A girls' choral group sang, and Jonne Martin entertained
with a dance.

Class of '48
During the winter quarter. cries ot 'lWe want another
senator! echoed down the school halls, at assemblies,
and almost any place where an irate ninth grader could
campaign the issue. Because this class is the largest in
the school, the treshmen telt it only right that they
should have another senator. Everyone remembers the
campaign that was carried on in assembly and the
voting that came atterwards -swell, the ninth grade
got their senator by a majority vote.
The ninth graders succeeded in arousing the entire
school's interest in their other activities, too. Their cane
didate tor homecoming queen. Joan Hunter, was tops
among the queens. She led in votes a large part ot the
time, keeping the other classes on their toes and the
dollars rolling into the cotters ot the Red Cross. The
halls were plastered with posters proclaiming the merits
ot the treshman choice tor queen. With all their ens
thusiasm, this class has an excellent chance to steal the
l-lomecoming crown trom the upper classmen next year.
The girls ot the Class ot '48 played a major part in or-
ganizing the Junior l-ligh Girls' Club, and in carrying on
its program ot activities. St. Patriclris Day was the theme
tor the treshnnan Mothers' Tea, which was given in March.

Being the youngest class in the school could be a handi-
cap, but the seventh grade ot '44-'45 has come out
way ahead ot most other classes. They also have a
larger class than U. l-ligh is accustomed to see in the
Parties are a necessary part ot every class program and
the seventh grade was not laclcing in this respect. They
gave some very successtul parties during the year. One
was a party in the tall on the river banks. The other, a
big event tor everybody, was the Mothers' Tea given
in cooperation with the eighth grade. The theme was
Valentines Day and so the mothers were given name
tags in the torrn ot hearts. Some ot the members ot the
class were active in aiding the Red Cross in making
checlcerboards tor the boys in service.
Yes, wherever the seventh grade goes their presence is
enthusiastically proclaimed. U. l-ligh has every right to
be proud ot this group.

The organization that lays down the laws around U. l-ligh is that student-governing body known as the Senate
At the close ot each year representatives trom each ot the classes are chosen to serve as Senators during the tol-
lowing year. Atter an entertaining weelc, concluded by an assembly at which campaign speeches are given tor each
candidate, the otticers are elected by a popular vote ot the entire student body. This years otticers were: Bede
Clapp, who served as president: George Blalce, whose vicespresidential manners were above reproach: Gerry Mc-
Meelqin, who lcept accurate accounts ot the meetings as secretary: and Ray l-larris, whose duties as treasurer occu-
pied a good share ot his time. Mr. Mcfutcheon, the taculty adviser, helped the Senators to lceep up their outf
standing record as Q student governing body.
Again this year, as in others past, the Senate has been in charge ot both the l"li-lites and l-lomecoming. The
latter event, celebrating Daisy Mae, 'Lil Abner, and their Dogpatch customs, was well attended and enjoyed. To
aid in the war ettort one ot the many iobs ot the Senate this year was to tingerprint all the members ot the

A committee chosen at the beginning ot

tert, has been working on a new consti-

broader powers, a detinite need has
arisen tor a new statement ot its powers
and duties. This new constitution was

along with these the bassoon, bass fiddle, saxophone,
trombone, French horn, baritone, and flute are repre-
sented. ln addition to the regular members there are
about twelve other students who work with Mr. Nicker-

Qne ot the newest organizations within
school is the Typing Club, tormed to se
teachers, students, and school organizations .
doing all the typing that is needed.
All students enrolled in typing class are eligible
to become members ot the club. This year the
typing club has a new adviser, Miss Riley. The
meetings were held on Thursdays during the
activity hour, in room 209. Typing that needed
to be done was given to Miss Riley, and with
the competent help ot the club, it was neatly
and quickly turned out. The club has done a
helptul and etticient job, and each member
deserves recognition tor service given. We
hope that next year's club can come up to the
standards set this year.
The Dramatic Club, which is one ot the largest
and also one ot the oldest in the school, is
open tor membership to any student in Senior
l-ligh who is interested in dramatics. l-lowever
the members don't have to be young actors or
actresses. or even interested solely in dramatics
tor many other sides ot the theater are dis-
cussed at club meetings. Short plays, readings,
discussions ot entertainers in the theater world,
and talks on the ditterent aspects ot the thea-
ter entertained club members during their
vveelrfy sessions. The members elected Carolyn
Rondestvedt as president ot their group, and
Steve Woltt as vice-president. l-lelen Buchta
served as secretary, and Jim Marvin handled
the tinancial end oi the club. Dramatic Club
was larger this past year than it has been tor
several years. The boys were a detinite minor-
ity, with only six boys as regular members. One
oi the main proiects ot the year was the re-
writing ot the constitution.
According to custom, the Dramatic Club again
presented an all-school play during the tall
quarter. This yearls production was l'Seven Sis-
tersfi a comedy in three acts concerning the
troubles ot a l-lungarian widow and her seven
daughters. The members ot the club made the
settings tor the play as well as worlring on
lighting and other properties,

speech director, served as adviser ot the
pi Photo Service Club was organized under
guidance ot Mr. Laging to teach the stu-
nts interested in photography how to talce,
develop, and print pictures.
The most important worlc ot this organization
is that ot talcing pictures tor the Bisbila and

and to develop closer triendships among athf
leticailyfminded boys. Much ot the success ot
this group is due to the helptul assistance ot
Mr. Anderson, the baslcetball coach, and Mr.

ln this year's Junior Dramatic Club there
many promising understudies for the Ser
Dramatic Clubs of the future. These young o
matic enthusiasts are making a name for ther
selves at an early date and at the same tim.
are gaining valuable dramatic experience.
Before the club got under way it was found
necessary to draw up a new constitution. Regu-
lar meetings were then held on every other
Monday. ln keeping with their purpose, which
was to become better acquainted with the
theater and the problems of producing a suc-
cessful play, club members studied lighting,
color, make-up, and famous stage personali-
The club worked in conjunction with the Senior

The Music Appreciation Hour has been one
of the most enjoyable activity periods this
year. It was directed by Mr. Keston every Tues-
day for students interested in the works of the
masters. The programs consisted chiefly of
piano concertos. First, the background of the
music to be played was discussed. Then, the
recording was played, and lvlr. Keston ana-
lyzed the techniques of the performing artist
and talked about the life of the composer.

During the tirst quarter only members ot the
second, third, and tourth year classes were ala
lowed to become members. At the beginning
ot winter quarter tirst year students were ad-
mitted, Miss Trandett and Miss Birlcmaier, who
served as advisers, helped to l4eep up the in-
terest ot the club in Latin America.
An interesting project ot the year was the
correspondence between South American and
Mexican students and the members ot the
Spanish Club. Through the League, names and
addresses ot these neighbors to the south were
obtained. At the meetings, held on alternate
Fridays, the members enjoyed movies which
dealt with views ot historic and scenic interest
and with the customs ot the Spanish people.

Although Pep Club is a newly founded organization at
U. High, it has many enthusiastic members with true
school spirit. Under guidance of their sponsor, Mrs.
Turner, the members do their best to build up interest
in football and basketball games. Pep Club also tries
to promote good school spirit generally. We have these
clubbers to thank for those swell pep fests, chartered
streetcars to the outlying football games, and their part
in sponsoring a contest for our new school song. Bede
Clapp, a Pep Club member, won the contest and fifteen
silver dollars. Gerry McMeekin did a fine job of run-
ning the club, while Milton Tinker backed her up as
vice-president. George Blake took charge of collecting
the dues, while Joan Endress kept all the minutes in
order. The Pep Club again held several of these famous
before-the-game parties. During winter quarter they
held a sleighride, which, from all reports, was really

This year the German Club has gone social in the true
sense ot the word. Under the able direction ot Fraulein
Birkmaier, the club has worked hard to stimulate an in-
terest in the language and customs ot the German
people. The group arranged an intormal gathering
which took place every Tuesday during lunch hour, un-
der the name l'Der Stammtischfl At this time those in-
terested could meet together at a table in Shevlin, on
the condition that they speak nothing but German. At
the beginning ot the year, the members chose George
Blake as Prasident: Ed. Oldtield, Vize-Prasident: Mary
Goeptert, Sekretar: Jeanne Lauer, Kassiererin.
Throughout the year this club had several successtui
parties. Besides a wiener roast, a sleighride, and their
annual Christmas party, the German clubbers helped to
toster Christmas spirit again this year by trimming their
class room. Upon paying their dues, members received
membership cards, especially printed in German.
The old saying about Latin being a dead language.
certainly doesnt hold true at U. l-ligh. Every student
taking Latin automatically becomes a member ot the
Latin Club, which meets monthly under the advisership
ot Miss Marlow. A distinctive teature about the club is
that each class meets separately during their regular
class hour. Each class is divided into two groups, which
alternately take charge ot the months program. At
these meetings the other halt ot the class is entertained
by plays, songs, talks dealing with Latin, and games, ot
which the purpose is to increase the studentls interest
in and knowledge ot the language. The plays are either
in Latin or pertain to Roman customs, events, or men.
Each member receives a program, which is written in
Latin. An added attraction is that retreshments are
served atter each program. Jim Marvin served as presi-
dent, with Marie Geist, vice-president: and secretar'
t.easurer, Margaret l-lansen.
Senior Girls' Club
Every girl in U. t-ligh becomes a member ot Senior
Girls' Club upon entering tenth grade. This club, organf
ized to promote a spirit ot friendship among the girls,
is under the advisership ot Mrs. Turner and Mrs.McCart.
ln the spring ot each year, the otticers tor the coming
year are elected. This year Jo Bouthilet served as presif
dent: Jeanne Lauer, vice-pres.: Jay Tilden, treas.: and
Joyce Tanltenoti, sec. Girls' Club is headed by a group
ot girls who serve as Cabinet and Council.
Tradition accounts tor the two main proiects ot the
year: the Mothers' Teas and the Mother-Daughter Ban-
Girls' Club also sponsored the contest tor homecoming
queen. The entire proceeds trom this went to the Red
Cross. At Thanksgiving time, the social service commit-
tee collected tood to supply several needy tamilies.
girls were entertained at monthly programs by
speakers, who discussed various vocations.

Junior Girls' Club
This year, under the direction ot the Senior High Girls'
Club, the younger girls at LJ. I-ligh tormed a club ot
their own. It is similar to the senior high organization,
and it tunctions in much the same manner. Under the
guidance ot Mrs. Maloney, adviser ot the group, the
girls elected otlicers, wrote a constitution, and soon
became a very active group. Jean Ludwig served as
president, while Jean Endress toolc over in her absence,
as vice-president. Cathie Schater was chosen to lceep
the minutes in order as secretary, and Lenore Boberg
was made responsible tor the money matters ot the
club. The Cabinet and Council worlced jointly with that
ot the Senior I-ligh Club to collect tood and money dur-
ing Red Cross and War Chest drives.
The club sponsored the Mothers' Teas tor the lower
grades, at which many ot the mothers were introduced
to U. I-ligh. This group has made a splendid start and
plans have been made to continue the organization.

University High's spirited Maroon and Gold tootball
team has again completed a successtul season with
tour wins out ot six entanglements.
At 8:00 P. M., September I5, I944, the season got un-
der way with the Little Gophers losing a thriller to
Hopkins on Northrop Field. U. High got Ott to a bad
start by allowing Hopkins two touchdowns and one ex-
tra point in the tirst quarter ot play. From that point ot
the game till the end, U. High worked as a unit and
held Hopkins scoreless. Our tighting eleven couldn't
push over a score, however, although they got to Hop-
kins! one yard line. Hopkins was started on its way to
another championship by this I3-O victory.
Cn the tollowing Friday, U, High traveled to Mound
tor an atternoon game which we won l3-6. The score
does not tell the real story because U. High was a vast-
ly superior outtit. The tirst part ot the game was a punt-
ing duel until we recovered a Mound tumble on their

35-yard line. A pass from Parks to Tjossem produced
.he tirst score and Tiossem kicked the extra point tor a
score ot 7-O. ln the 'fourth quarter, U. High marched to
Mound's I3 where Tjossem took a lateral from Parks for
a score ot I3-O. ln the closing seconds ot the game,
Mound's Dobbs dashed 80 yards against our second
team tor a touchdown. U. High threatened to score many
times but had to be satistied with a I3-6 count.
The most thrilling game ot the season was played at
St. Louis Park. The entire game was a battle ot lines
with a break-through a rarity. During the second quar-
ter Tjossem took a lateral trom Parks and raced down
the sidelines, out-running the entire Park team tor a
score. Tjossem kicked the extra point tor a halt time
score ot 7-O. A greatly inspired Park team came on to
Two thousand enthusiastic Robbinsdale Homecoming
fans cheered the Robins to a 25-6 victory, October 20.
The Robins wasted little time in getting their 'first and
second scores. Jack Tjossem displayed the only brilliant
U. High win ot the atternoon by a 92 yard run back of
an intercepted pass. The two teams left the tield at
halt time with the Robins leading I3-6. The second halt
was dominated entirely by Robbinsdale. They tinished
the atternoon with two touchddivns ot 55 and 60 yards
each. The Robins had satistied their Homecoming
crowd by trouncing us 25-6.

crossed our goal line, fortunately missing the extra
point tor a tinal score ot 7-6. Park threatened to score
on ditterent occasions, but a fighting U. High team
turned back the would-be invaders.
Cn Friday, October l3th U. High played the re-
venge game ot the year under the Northrop Field lights
against a determined Wayzata eleven. lt was this
eleven that kept U. High trom being an undefeated
team last year. The tirst quarter was marred by many
tumbles by both squads. U. High received the tirst
break by recovering a Wayzata tumble on its own 27.
Tiossem climaxed that drive by plunging over trom the
2. On the next drive, again Tjossem scored tor a halt-
time score ot l2-O. ln the third quarter, tullback Doyle
plunged over from the 5 to make the tinal score I8-O.
From then until the end ot the game, the second team
took over to gain valuable experience tor next year's
team. This was truly an unlucky Friday the l3th tor
score. Tjossem opened the second halt with a touch-
down and extra point. Baer scored his second touch-
down in a 60 yard run. Tritter kicked the extra point
tor a count of 34-O. Excelsior's only score came on a 91
yard drive. A pass into the end zone to Lunston made
the score 34-6. An all senior team finished the l944
tootball season by scoring on a pass from Parks to
Clapp and a lateral to Tiossem, who raced over tor an
overwhelming score ot 40-6.
U. High was honored at the end ot the tootball season
when Larry Doyle and Jack Tjossem were placed on the
All Lake Conterence team. It was a repeat pertormance
tor Jack as he made the tirst team tor the second straight
year. He also retained his scoring leadership in the
conference by tallying 65 points during the season.
Larry Doyle's second year at the tullback spot was
crowned by his being placed on the second All-Con-
terence Team as the most etlective blocker on the team
Larry richly deserved this high honor.
The Little Gophers had a moderately successful season
during the school year which has just ended, hitting tor
an even .500 percentage in an eighteen game sched-
ule. The caging season was marked by two distinct
types ot play by the U. High Bucketeers. During the
tirst halt ot the season it can be said that their ball
handling, shot making, and detense were as good as
any other team in the entire Lake Conterence. But
during the tag end ot the year the team seemed to lose
the drive that had carried them to victory in so many
early season games. This reaction seemed to set in
atter the loss ot the tirst St. Louis Park game, which was
lost only atter a tew careless mistakes which presented
Park with I2 straight points in the middle ot the third
U. High opened the basketball season by dropping a
hotly contested contest to Hutchinson in the university
tieldhouse, where all ot the home games were played,
by a score ot 20-I8. The Little Gophers led at the halt
by I4-8, but saw their lead wither betore the tight-
tisted cletense put up by the Tigers in the second halt.
This was the same Hutchinson team which later, as a
representative ot the third region, took tourth place in
the state tournament.
Opening the conterence schedule, U. High took the
measure of Mound and Robbinsdale by scores ot 36-30
and 26-25. Jack Tjossem paced both victories by scor
ing I7 and I4 points in the two games. The Robbins
dale game was an overtime battle in which the Littl
Gophers had to tight trom behind to win.
During the Christmas holidays, U. High invaded dis-
trict 25 and came home with victories over Askov and
Sandstone. Dick Herreid went on a scoring spree to net
47 points in these triumphs. The Little Gophers com-
pletely dominated play in both contests and won by
scores ot 30-22 and 7I-39. Betore school opened tor
the winter quarter U. High also played Buffalo Lake
and came home with a 42-32 victory.
In a triumphant return to the tieldhouse, the Little Go-
phers tipped a tighting Moose Lake tive in an over-
time battle, 29-27. Moose Lake, another representative
ot the twenty-titth district, led most of the way, but
Dick Herreid's sixteenth point, scored on a tree throw,
tied up the game, and Howie Lorberbaum's drive-in
shot decided the game in the overtime period.
Returning to the conference wars, U. High dropped the
decisive contest to St. Louis Park, 37-29. Seeming well
on the road to victory midway in the third period, the
Little Gophers lost George Petraborg, ace guard with a
shoulder injury, and the U. High detense seemed to dis-
integrate, permitting the Parkers to tlash through tor I2

the second to Excelsior, by scores of 22-I8 and 20-I9.
Although presented with many opportunities to win
both games the cagers seemed to lack the drive needed
to pull out a victory in either.
Tasting victory for the first time since the Moose Lake
game, the Maroon and Gold cagers whipped a weak
Wayzata club by 33-24. The score in itself was disap-
pointing, for Wayzata could not manage a win in

Mound turned the tables on U. High by pulling out a
35-29 upset victory over the Little Gophers. U. l-ligh's
ex-coach, brought his Mound team along so well from
game to game that by the end of the season they were
able to upset the fourth place Robbinsdale team and
advance into district tournament.
Taking two of the worse thumpings suffered by a U.
High team since l942, the Little Gophers were bumped
by Excelsior and l-lopkins by the overwhelming scores
of 40-I8 and 42-I4. ln these two games the U. l-ligh
defense was practically negligible as both the Bluejays
and the Warriors charged up and down the court for

tire conference season, in which U. l-ligh, playing
without the services of Jack Tjossem, George Petraborg,
and Pete Jesness, shocked a heavily favored Robbins-
dale team, 36-33. The hot shooting of Dick Herreid and
John McCallum, which accounted for I3 and I5 points
respectively, and the sterling defensive work turned in
by the whole team, made possible this upset victory.
U. l-ligh closed its regular season with a victory and a
defeat, as the team suffered its second setback at the
hands of St. Louis Park, 30-24, and again trounced the
hapless Trojans from Wayzata, 34-22. This exchange of
fortunes gave the Little Gophers a conference record of

After the I944 Bisbila was edite , the igh track
team completed a successful '44 season by placing sec-
ond in the Mound Relays, second in the District I8 meet,
and third in the Region 5 meet.
Hurdler Frank Seidel and High Jumper Ed Clapp placed
first in their respective events to pace the cindermen to
second place in the annual Mound Relays. Hopkins took
the meet with 38 points, while U. High's 3IIf2 points
were good for second place.
In the District I8 meet, Captain Jack Tjossem led the
thin clads to the runner-up spot behind Hopkins by tak-
ing first places in the pole vault and the broad jump.
Clapp and Seidel once again snared firsts in the high
jump and high hurdles respectively. Men who placed
first, second, or third in the district competition were
eligible to compete in the regional event, held the fol-
lowing week at Memorial stadium. On this condition, U.
High sent Tjossem, Clapp, and Seidel in the events men-
tioned above: besides Ralph Nelson in the 440 yard
dash, Larry Gage in the low hurdles, Clapp in the IOO
yard dash and the broad jump, and the 880 yard relay
By taking either a first or a second place in the Region
5 meet, where the trackmen as a team finished third,
Seidel, Clapp, Nelson, and Tjossem advanced to the
state meet, where Clapp was the only point winner, tying
for fifth in the high jump.
The track season had yet to get under way when the
I945 Bisbila went to press. but practice sessions had
been held inthe Fieldhouse since the end of the basket-
ball season. Meets with Robbinsdale and St. Thomas
were on the schedule and Wayzata and Mound had been
The prospects were not as promising as those of last
year, but plans were going along smoothly for the open-
ing of the track season.
U. High, as in past years, will again enter the Carleton
Invitational meet, which is held annually at Northfield.
This event is scheduled for May I2 this year, and it will
be followed by the Mound Relays, the District I8 meet,
and the Region 5 meet. The season comes to a climax
on June 2, when the Minnesota State Track and Field
meet is held in Memorial Stadium on the Campus.
Veterans returning to bolster this year's cinder squad are
Ed Clapp, Larry Gage, Jerry Petraborg, Jack Tjossem.
and Jack Mork. Frank Seidel, one of the outstanding
hurdlers in Region 5, was eligible to compete. but the
team suffered a severe blow when he entered the Mer-
chant Marine during Spring vacation.
Newcomers to the track team who are candidates for
competition in the various events include Lyle Haber-
and, Dale Johnson, Bob Alexander, Tom Ohrbeck, Tom
Joseph. George Blake, Jack Dorfman, Ken Newton, Jim
McMillen and Harley Ray.

course, will be keenly felt. However, with youngsters

Matches have been arranged with Wayzata, St. Louis
Park, and Deephaven, all of whom are District I8 foes.
All of these teams are loaded with veterans, and U.
l-ligh must be rated a distinct underdog in any matches
held with these schools. Blake School and Minnehaha
Academy also appear on the schedule, but little is
known about these teams except that Blake boasts, in
Scott Donaldson, one of the finest young tennis players
in the Northwest.
Veterans returning from last year's squad include Walter
Berkman, Jerry Baer, and Lorand Tritter. These boys
took part in meets last year, but none of them en-
countered outstanding success. l-lowever it is upon
them, together with a few newcomers, that the success
or failure of this year's team depends.
The three boys mentioned above, together with Bill
McGee and Cy Brown, who graduated last year, made
up last year's team. The l944 season was a very short
one, with only three matches being played. Two of
these matches were dropped to Deephaven while Way-
zata was conquered in the other match.
Boys' Phy Ed
The physical education program ottered to the boys ot
U. High, was again as diversitied as it has been in
oast years. The program was supervised by Mr. Nagel,
who was assisted by Vern Qiampa and Wayne Wilf
liams, the only two practice teachers in the Phy. Ed.
The variety ot sports participated in by the boys
changed with the seasons. Mr. Nagel, as a discharged
Marine Veteran, recognized the value ot calisthenics
in any conditioning program, and insisted upon them
as the opening phase ot each gym class. every day ot
During the tall quarter the boys played touch tootball
tor almost two months, and even managed to secure
the tield house tor games a tew times during the winter.
Also whenever possible during the tall quarter, swim-
ming in Cooke l-lallls two beautitul pools was the order
ot the day. The pools were available several times a
month during the winter and spring quarters and Mr.
Giampa supervised their use at these times.
The boys also participated in basketball, volleybail,
wrestling, and apparatus work, all during the winter
quarter. Relays ot all kinds and combat games filled
In at various times during the year when equipment
lrom the university equipment cage was not available.
Girls' Phy Ed
Three times a week, the seventh, eighth, and tenth
grades went over to Norris Gymnasium tor Phy. Ed.,
taught by Miss Birmingham and Miss Sprague. The
ninth grade, however, went tive days a week. Two days
were devoted to a regular, active gym class, while two
more were spent in a classroom health program. Cn the
remaining day, Friday, all the classes were permitted to
sign up on the bulletin tor swimming, badminton, shuttle
board and duck pin bowling.
During the tall quarter all classes took soccer exten-
sively, at tirst outside and then, as it began to get
colder, inside in the tield house. Ot course, there still
were the Fridays when the girls could take part in any
recreational sport they liked. ln some ot the classes
they took a little time out trom game sports to indulge
in some tolk dancing.
ln winter quarter, the classes were given more choice ot
what they wanted to do. For the tirst tew weeks, phy-
sical titness was stressed. An extensive program ot
calisthenics made everyone s ioints creak at tirst. fktter
that basketball held the center ot interest, with games
oetween classes to provide the element ot competition.
Spring quarter came, and as soon as it was warm
enough classes rushed outsioe to play baseball. This is
almost the tavorite sport ot the girls and they had a
series ot games between the grades.

All the old-timers at U. High were quite contused by
the sea ot new taces suddenly surrounding them, but
it wasnt hard to get used to it. ln tact, we all became
one big happy tamily in no time.
The great excess ot beauty hidden within the 5 .en
striped walls was soon made apparent by the candi-
date chosen trom each class, tor the queen ot our
Homecoming. And what could have been more pertect
than when, the night ot the Homecoming dance at the
Union, Kathleen Quigley, the lovely lrish lass, was
crowned queen ot them all.
The Homecoming dance itselt, on November 6th was
ju about the most successtul dance U. High has seen
in many a year, and none ot us shall soon torget the

The national elections were pretty important in our lives
this year-more so than ever betore because ot the
small scale campaign and elections we had right in the
school. The walls were almost solid with posters tor
weeks in advance. There were assemblies and speeches
and arguments but at last, on November 3rd, everyone
votedfor at least everyone who registered, because
every detail was just like that ot the national elections.

After two weeks ot sleeping, Christmas Day, and one
wondertul New Years Eve, U. l-lighites tumbled sleep-
ily into their respective carpools, streetcars, bicycles,
teet, buses and anything that would take them to "ye
olde U. i-light.
Nobody telt very peppy atter vacation, except the
Pep Club which took upon itselt to give out with a
grand, gala sleighride, which ended up with a grand
slam at Buchtals.
People got so peppy that near the end ot the party
Dick l-lerreid and others previewed their songs tor the
song contest which several school organizations spon-
sored. The judges had a hard time picking the winner
trom the many good songs turned in. l-lowever the
winner, Bede Clapp, was tinally awarded titteen silver
dollars at a hilarious Pep Fest in February.
'Twas a great occasion when the BISBILA pictures were
taken. Somehow, unaccountably, new and shining taces
were seen amongst some ot the old. Each club seemed
to have taken on many new club members. Many
"wise" treasurers took this most opportune moment to
collect their dues.
In contrast to the neat Bisbila picture day, came Pan
American Club initiation day with prospective mem-
bers dropping unexpectedly to the tloor in all parts
ot the school.
Tl girls ot each class put on a tea tor all the mothers
ot the class. The over-all chairman, senior Nancy Mayall,
llm sure welll all agree, did a swell job on them.
Time Magazine certainly put out a whopper ot a test.
As usual, however, U. Highites came out with tlying
colors, Jerry Baer topped us all with a score ot 85. The
contest was open to all U. High students and covered
current events since September, I944.
Atter many long hard months ot work, Breeze and Bis-
bila decided to have a skating party. Mrs. Merideth,
Mr. Carlsen, and Miss l-landlan shared the honors tor
cooking an excellent meal tor the skaters. Everything
was devoured with relish except a pot ot baked beans
which was rattled ott to l-lelen Buchta tor one cent.
The appearance ot more snow apparently encouraged
the German Club and they had a sleighride on the tarm
campus. The clubbers came back to school atterwards,
and, all in all, the party was a success.
February was a busy month tor all the senior actors and
actresses in "Growing Pains". Mr. Brink and his cast
could be seen practically every Saturday and Sunday
sweating over their lines in room 2lO. The great pro-
duction really shook down the house on March I7th.
Study hall became the hub ot activity tor the Senate
who decided it was high time U. l-ligh got tingere
printed. There might have been a tew extra tingerprints
on the walls and books that memorable day but the
Senate accomplished its purpose and got the tingerf

Something to Remember Us By....
Yes, it looked like it was going to be a long, long
grind, but it went fast-so fast in fact that it is hard
to believe that it actually is all over. But now, as the
seniors depart, with heavy hearts, most of them have
some part of themselves that they want to leave be-
John Bell, for instance, leaves for the Marines after
giving his snappy civilian ties to Lyle Haberland. Mar-
garet Grant's wonderful skating ability is left as a goal
for Lenore Paper to aim for. Jo French and Janet Ry-
lander are the recipients of the art talents of that
inseparable twosome, Marilyn Bergquist, and Nancy
Bishop. Who could better take charge of Nancy May-
all's lovely, dark beauty than Jean Endress? Margie
Hetfield leaves that infectious laugh of hers to Joan
Endress. Roger Merrill leaves the job of showing films
to Jim Marvin.
Probably no one could live up to Jack Tjossem's won-
derful athletic ability so he takes it with him. Joanne
Bouthilet leaves her good natured, efficient personality
to Pudge Boberg. There doesn't seem to be anyone
who can acquire Larry Doyle's highly developed talent
of being an "operator," Larry Gage and George Pet-
raborg leave together and with their plots and plans.
Those attracting eyes of Pete Jesness' are left to Howie
Lorberbaum. Tom Joseph and Dick Herreid hope they
can find someone in whose hands they can leave the
A.V.O.C. Lil Rumble leaves her sparkling eyes to Joyce
Tankenoff. Marilyn Schmidt leaves her voice to Carol
Macey. Jeanne Lauer and Bob Alexander will take over
the spot reserved in the hall for Carolyn Rondestvedt
and Bud Lemma. Dinny Lagersen leaves her smooth
technique to Sue Hirsch, who already seems to have
one well developed.
That deck of cards that Milton Tinker has in the
A.V.O.C. room is left to Paul Lohmann. Sue Ramer
leaves all her pep to Joan Conrad. Donna Mae Snyder
leaves her quiet charm to Barbara Gesell. Margaret
Beddall and Bede Clapp leave together. Lucky Marge
Krinsky takes over Jay Tilden's gorgeous clothes. To
Harley Ray, Don Harty leaves his smooth blonde hair.
Jack Mork leaves with a cheery smile on his face. but
arguing just the same. Derry Myers leaves a part of his
musical interests to Bill Milham. Jack Samels will carry
on any orchestra connections that Kari Ebbighausen
ised to handle. Barb Fligelman leaves her ability for a
apid-fire conversation to the Randolph twins. Mary
Soepfert leaves that efficient brain of hers to Tenny
ode. Virginia Hiniker and Nancy Gaspar leave on the
rad to becoming ace aviatrixes some day. Betty Dah-
takes her incomparable figure with her. Chuck Doer-
mann is going to take over all swoon crooning for Ralph
Walt "the Arm" Berkman wills his brute strength to
Tom Ohrbeck. Probably some day Sue Hedback will be
able to step into Barbara Bartholdi's shoes and become
an actress with no little talent. Joanne Storch leaves
her fathomless wisdom to Sandy Walker. Ellie Collier's
job of delivering bulletins is left to next year's second
hour page. Joyce Halvorson is going to let Val Ray
Kohner take over her acrobatic dancing ability. Louie
and Lynn Johnson leave with the other half of Mr.
Mork's tie. All that fascinating jewelry of Shirley Beggs'
goes to Donna Johnson. George Blake's subtle humor
remains as a goal for the ever-striving junior boys. The
creative art talent of Elwyn Chamberlain is probably
something that no one at U. High will approach for
some time. Betty Jane Locke leaves her appeal to her
little sister Dodo. Nancy Cullum leaves with a diamond
on her finger. Marge Wert leaves her affection for the
Navy blue to Dolly Ohrbeck. The Pep Club is left in the
hands of anyone who can be found with as much spirit
as Gerry McMeekin. George Harrison, Ray Johnson,
Ed Oldfield, and John Roe all leave together in a car
after second period.
Lois Nelson leaves her Lindy technique to Pat Hunt.
Lollie Stone's flawless complexion is left for Janet Nel-
son. Jackie Susman takes her writing talent with her,
'cause if she uses it she will probably become a noted
authoress some day. Dave Sullivan leaves his jack-rabbit
speed on the track to Phil Packard. Eleanor Selle leaves
her husky voice to Margaret Hansen. Ted Rauen is go-
ing to take over from Garrett Gruner the job of being
a mad scientist. Dorothy Levy's keen dramatic interests
go to Diane Rice. Peggy Taylor wills her reputation for
gracious hospitality to Liz Burn. Jeanne Swoboda de-
cided she wouldn't look too well bald, so she's taking
her gorgeous long blonde hair with her. Liz Carnes
leaves her curly, swooping eyelashes to Arlene Kauf-
To Elaine Greenstein, Kathleen Quigley, the gal who's
editor of this great book, leaves her beautiful hands.
Shirley Peterson goes home to wait for Jim lBakerj.
Frank Seidel's track ability, especially at the hurdles,
goes to Jerry Petraborg. Marilyn Brickman is going to
take her familiar Pink Lightning lipstick with her. Car-
men Simonson leaves, probably to become a radio star
some day. Sally Seestedt leaves her cute turned-up
nose to Anne Hillhouse. Bernadette Hansen leaves her
fri rdliness and ever-ready smile lingering in the U. High
to be used when needed. '
