It is not our purpose to have you read and look at this book at face value. Nor is it our purpose to use the theme of the Indian as an isolated subject. True, the word Bisbila means 'Little Gopher, in the Indian language, but how many of us knew this? And how many of us realize our lack of understanding of those groups, symbolized by the Indian, which are considered to be in the minority. The Indian: background and backbone of America. The cover displays an arrow and a peacepipe, symbols of aspiration and harmony. Should a cover or a color be all that one sees? The Indian suggests the prairies, the sunsets, the smoke of the camphres, the tang of America's his- toric past. The sod of the prairie is all green or all yellowg the skins of the men on it are all different. Their hearts and souls are harmonious. The smoke of the campfire is in the pages of this book . . . in that smoke, the dignity of mankind. . Seugfe tp lx I J ff' 1"tVxSog,'X f Tmdex Ag?

He has been concerned with the reorganization of U. High's curriculum. Another of his responsibilities is the securing of stall members. A departure from past policies will be the provision for permanent positions for the department heads. S'rERL1No li. MITCHELL is a lieutenant commander in 'gcivviesfi His is the job, as assistant principal, of straightening out disciplinary problems and organizing schedules for classes and activities. ln addition, he is advisor to Senate and Dragotnen. Exousu: g'Men seldom malie passes at girls who wear glassesfi Dorothy Parl4er's aphorism has been contra- tlictetl again! The head of our English department, Iulia Nygaard, and Richard Alm, ninth grade teacher, are engaged. Tenth grade teacher Marion MacDonald, and Grace Daly, in her third year of teaching eleventh grade, make up the rest of the feminine contingent. The two other members of the department are Bisbila advisor and senior instructor, Dwight Burton, and the man responsible for developing all of U. High's dra- matic talent, Lauren Brinli, who is teaching his fourth year of speech. PEitsoxNEL: Strong . . .

Merton Iohnson, science nproff' is also advisor of the Photo Service Club. The third member of the department is Manfred Schrupp, instructor of freshman general science and golf coach. SOCIAL STUDIES: Ionathan Mclsendon, senior social studies teacher, has turned author with a book on new methods of teaching world history. That's not the only part of social studies that is being taught dilferently, however. Those who took U.S. History from Harmony Phillips last year would be a bit envious of the new way she taught it this year. lohn Matlon gives his seventh and eight graders an orientation of their surroundings. M.-x'rH: The one Scotchman among all the H1ohnsons" is George McCutcheon, who teaches eighth grade math and science and ad- vises Hi-Y and Chess Club. james Shunert, geometry and trig Hproff' is advisor of the sophomore class and the Aviation-Naviga- tion Club. Head of the department is Donovan Iohnson, who in- structs freshrnan math, and acts as advisor of the ninth grade and Driving Club. Newcomers last winter quarter were George Stan- ley, higher algebra, and Robert Price, seventh grade math. Oififieis STAFF: The ofhce staff is composed of Edith Nyquist, clerk, and Ruth Wood, office secretary. All school business, as well as the transcripts and records of students, is in their hands. They also supervise the work of the pages. Uxnfnau Airrs: ln her two years at U. High, Ruth Odland has changed her Commercial Department from an insignificant class in Vincent Hall to an important one in the new temporary. The Unified Arts Department is headed by Howard Nelson, indus- trial arts teacher who teaches two high school classes and advises two model clubs. The other two industrial arts classes are tatight by Willittm Kavanaugh, advisor of the Radio Club. Lois Ander- ' , 1- 6491-WL 1 ww M f Mai: J.

The Home Economics Department is under the direction of Louise MacKenzie and Adelheid Price, who teaches ninth grade Unified Arts: Ioseph lung directs the Mixed Chorus and String ljnsemble, while Charlie Smith is in charge of the Orchestra and has an eighth grade home room. L.wctvAeE: One of the biggest barriers in the way of the UOne Wtirltll' concept is language. This is one reason why U. High has developed its language department. Dorothy Trandelf has been teaching her Spanish classes a little of the culture of Latin America. The German classes, instructed by Eberhard Kron- hausen and Emma Birkmaier, have learned to understand Ger- many better. Miss l5irkmaier's other class, Russian, has great sig- nificance right now. French is taught by Alix Noviant, who knows from her experiences in France the full importance of in- ternational understanding. LIBRARY: lean Smith, the librarian, is a well known bibliographer who has traveled extensively in South America. NURsE: NHealth Service" is no longer an excuse to get out of classes with our new nurse, Mildred Bickman, who has caught on to our Hdiseases" and made us realize the importance of the Student Health Service. Ct7s'roD1ANs: Isaac Newton Ireland, "poet laureate" of U. High, is much better known around the school as just HNewt." He has been with U. High since 1937 as custodian. The other member of this staff is Ruth Mann, the perky lady who keeps things looking nice in the school. P1iYs1cAL llnticarioxz No one knows how to keep boys physically fit better than Gerald Person. He teaches boys' physical education and coaches one major sport each quarter. Mary Bermingham does the same for the girls through the tenth grade.

Although everyone had a wonderful time, the venture was not successful Finan- cially. Since one of the main goals was the sponsoring of the I.S., the class was faced with the perennial problem of raising money. After discussing many schemes and plans, the class decided to sponsor a Leap Year Basket Ball. In the spirit of the occasion the girls became aggressive and dated the boys. The dance, which took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Union on February twentieth, was another triumph as a large representation from every class was present. The large turnout combined with the high pressure salesmanship of the Iuniors in- sured adequate funds for the Prom. During the year the class chose their rings. After much argument pro and con about several types and styles, the oblong ring was chosen. IUNIOR CLASS: First Rom: Gaslgill, Marsh, Boberg, Hanson, zlmberg, Hagen, Rowe, Moelq.

March third brought the girls to school dressed in their best 'bib and tuclierf Chairman of the Tea, Charlotte Dobell, welcomed the Mothers, and a pro- gram vvhich carried out the theme of the lion and the lamb followed. The fuzzy white lamb which was used as a centerpiece drew much attention. The Climax of the year was reached on the evening of May twenty-eighth. The results of hard work bore fruit, and the proved to be the Ksuper' event of the year. The officers who steered the class through a busy and diflicult year were lack Wzlll, president, Bob Allen, vice president, Greta Nelson, secretary, Iohn Fibiger, treasurer. The voice of the Iuniors was brought to the Senate by lack Wall, Tom Hubbard, Barry Pritchard, Betty Marsh and Bob Allen. Advisors were Mrs. Phillips, Mr. lung, Miss Daly, and Mr. Brink.

In the fall the class set an objective at which to aim: the unifi- cation of the class and its activities. Proving that class meetings could be entertaining as Well as business-like, many of the talented sophomores put on programs of music, dancing, and chalk talks! Presiding over the class meetings, lim Bell, with the aid of vice president Dave Mason, insured quiet. Toni Krick then read the minutes and Ierry Gold delicately collected the dues. As a result of one meeting, the Sophomores were seen selling maroon pencils with gold lettering. The pro- ceeds Will be used to sponsor the 1949 Iunior-Senior Prom. After the St. Louis Park basketball game in December, the tenth grade sponsored a Candlelight Dance. The feature attraction came when the boys, Wearing femi- nine attire, staged an hilarious fashion show. On February sixth the energetic Sophomores went Arural, by having a square dance. Warren Ruud was chairman of the affair. The country style food and dancing helped to make the party a huge success. A transformed library set the scene for the Sophomore Mothers' Tea on February eleventh. Sheila Croll was the busy chairman. Invitations and decorations were appropriate for Valentines Day, and the program was a gay performance. Ann Iarvis, Tinka Hornberger, Tod Dockstader, Lois Simonson and Iean Hirsch brought the voice of the Sophomores to the Senate and actively participated in home room discussions. One home room sponsored inter-class basketball tournaments for boys and girls. The class advisors were Mrs. MacDonald, Mrs. Od- land, Miss Trandeff, and Mr. Shunert.

Being socially minded, and aided by holidays, they held five parties in the fall quarter alone. Halloween witches and Santa Claus inspired them to give two gala events, as they used Halloween and Christmas as the basic themes for decoration. On February thirteenth, after the basketball game with Wayzata, the ninth grade sponsored a Iinx Dance. Entering Shevlin, one had to dash quickly through a ladder, for every superstition was dis- carded. Even the number thirteen helped everyone have a good time. The ninth grade cheered espe- cially, for they were making a pro-Ht! The entire student body turned out en masse in high spirits over the basketball victory. In meeting its obligations and solving its problems, the freshman class exhibited their talent in many all-school activities. Also to their credit is the mem- ber of the class, Kathy Coram, who was awarded the Acme Apple. This is an honor award given each year to the most outstanding girl in the Iunior High. The ninth grade senators, Rosalie Nash and Bud Fuhrman, provided the class with efficient repre- sentation in the Senate. The mothers were honored by the annual tea un- der the direction of Ann Potter. A skit portraying the step from Iunior High into Senior High had the audience enthralled. Officers of the class were Kathy Coram, President, Kenny Mohn, Vice President, Mary Anne David- son, Secretary, Bill Mason, Treasurer. Advisors were Donovan Iohnson, Howard Nelson, Louise McKenzie and Alix Marie Noviant. FRESHMAN CLASS: Top Picture: Top Row: Sachs, Val- entine, Wrenn, Sehliehter, Nelson, Priee.

They began with a sleigh ride at Hilltop Riding Academy. On Valen- tine's Day, Shevlin was the scene of another party. The eighth grade girls joined with those of the seventh grade to give their Mothers, Tea. The ohicers of the class were David Bailey, president, Helen Mae johnson, vice president, Sigrid Tracht, secretary, Betsy Iohan- son, treasurer. The class was represented in the Senate by Bessie Ewing and Paul Zietlow. Faculty advisors were Mrs. Anderson, Mr. Matlon, and Mr. McCutcheon. THE ADVANTAGES of having a small class are in knowing each member well and "learning the ropesl' for the span of high school years ahead. Always standing high in class competitions, the seventh grade enthusiastically entered the activities of the school. For the most of their social activi- ties the class joined the eighth grade. Early in the year the two classes exchanged par- ties. The Mothers' Tea was given under joint sponsorship also. Under Kathy Frank, general chairman assistant, the girls put EIGHTH GR.-EIDE: First Row: M. Anderson, lnclqson, Grczlznnz, Sec. Trncht, Pres. Bailey, V. Pres. H. lolznson, Trans.

Bunny Kuller, SCIILIILJT, and Mary Ewing, alternate, represented the seventh grade in the Senate. Those elected to lead the class made a thorough study of Roberts' Rules of Urder. The results were efficient class meetings with Tom Kirkpatrick presiding. In the absence of the president, Kenny Baker took over as vice president. The secretary was Nlargaret Middlebrook and the treas- urer was Gordon Whiting. 13 K UT I. ,G f"7 I F. xl rf, J gig .O fi fy f-'J ,Q .fn - QI H53 fff rj 'E fv r V , ' VW s -J T2 cl N f 5 5 ' is Q 'H . ,U 7 1 .W gf" C3171 f 'kj V. ff .1 J 'J fi xg fs , ,ZF fli f' ' I ,v .'

The progress of the Senate was reported to the students in the home rooms, and its opinions on the various problems became known. After a whirlwind week of campaigning each spring, which includes fili- busters by all candidates for ollice, merry assemblies and clever, colorful jzosters, Senate ofiicers are chosen in an all-school election. The classes also hold their Senate elections in the spring when the allotted number of sena- tors and alternates are chosen.

The minor uroblem consisted of the P l drive for write-ups. Each editor worked fervently passing-out, collecting, writing, and rewriting the many necessary and important write-ups. During the ear the students turned in snai shots for the feature Y D 1 section. These contributions, along with the group pictures, were hashed over, giggled over, and dili- entl uarded and ke t in secret until the lorious g Y S P S da when the Biz was uresented, or, as hi h societ Y . i a Y would express it, the day when the Biz Hcame outf' breeze To THE staff of the Campus Breeze, Saturday meant another day at school with hard work ahead.

The Cabinet and Council, with the aid of julia Nygaard, changed the former committees into interest groups. These groups varied in their activities from music and knitting to dancing and bridge instruction. The biggest projects of the year were the clothes drive for Europe, the Mothers' Teas, and the Mothers' and Daughters, Banquet. The Red Cross committee under Sue Hirsch carried on projects throughout the year. Under the president, Bev Miller, the club was again reorganized and the girls met after school. Though participation was voluntary, many of the girls stayed to enjoy the speakers and activities of the club. COUNCIL: Sfllizzgf L, Odhznd .lIoI111. Slmzdrizzg' P0rz'c'1', B. Ifz'1'zrf'I1y.

The first of these units, the dancing group, produced an original short ballet, while the Home Economics group sewed and studied good grooming. Another group was the creative writing division. The main activity of the dramatic section was planning, direct- ing and producing a play for the "get together" meeting. The art unit divided into two parts, clay modeling and the fashion designing divisions. Card playing was the basis for a new group added during the year. 19 IUNIOR HIGII CJBINET Q-1 Trudzl, Pres.

Who makes the informative posters displayed on the library bulletin boards? The hard workers who comprise the Library Board do these tasks and many others. Their greatest service has been in helping the student body to locate books and magazines. Board members, through the rota- tion system, have a chance at all the positions.

Meeting once a week, the group sang many new songs for the coming activities. First of all Was the Christmas Program featuring the string ensemble. Religious music was sung in keeping with the theme in the First part of the program and was followed by songs in the lighter mood. Last but not least was the all-school musical, U. Highlites. Much of Mr. Iung's outside time was given to a senior class group which was rehearsing for Baccalaureate. orchestra THE Tomas that resounded from the music room every first hour during the year were not from records but from a brand new U. High Orchestra. Charlie Smith, the able director, decided that a new addition should be made in the music department to replace the band. The change took place in the organizing of an or- chestra. NVith improvements and enlargements the orchestra was able to participate in more school events. Its first appearances Were made at the homecoming game, U. Highlites, and pep fests. The members as a group had a chance to experiment with music of different varieties.

Although the statistics were about even, the VVarriors piled up a 20-7 edge. In the first quarter, Hopkins put on the steam to bring on their lirst tally. Realizing that the VVarriors were not up to their "par," the Little Gophers marched down the held and Tom Ohrbeck pushed over from the 5 for the only U. High touchdown. lack Dorfman made the conversion to put U. High out in front at the half. Hopkins stormed back in the second half with two more touchdowns. Doug l5urn's play at guard was outstanding. Robbinsdale surprised the Little Gophers by running the kiekoll 711 yards lor a touchdown. A long pass in the second quarter caught the Gophers oll guard and chalked up another score for the Robbins. The Lf. High team came back in the second hall and gave all they had, but it wasn't enough. Robbinsdale tallied twice more and brought the hnal score to Z7-U. The Little Gophers were very proud ol their hrst vic- tory since '45 as they downed lixcelsior, 7-ll.

Bob also made the con- version. Forest Lake came back in the second quarter to tally, but the try for extra point failed. Later in the third quarter Tom Ohrbeck made the most spec- tacular run of the season by picking up a punt on the U.

Playing at the Field House for the first time, the Personmen lost their hrst conference game to a fast Robbinsdale quint, 57-21.

The next game found the Little Gophers winning their first conference game by defeating Wayzata, 29-22. Com- ing back from a one point dehcit at half time, the boys gained the lead early in the third quarter and kept it the remainder of the game.

All hopes for entering the District Tournament were shattered when Mound defeated U. High in the Sub- District, 38-26. Gophers lost their second game to Robbinsdale. 37-26.

Ham- pered by iniuries, the matmen dropped their return matches with Robbinsdale, Mound, Wztyzattt and Anoka, although the scores were much closer than those of the first round. In the return match with Excelsior, the Gophers again triumphed, this time to the tune of 58-H! Next year U. High hopes for a powerful team with its returning veteran lettermen. 31 TRACK TEAM: Standing: Gripp, Lehmann, Harmon, Mason, M. johnson, Trulia, Pauling, M.

High went into it's third season of baseball as an independent team. Since the expanding populations of Lake Conference schools made close competition with U. High impossible, entry was not made into the league. The first game was then scheduled with Eden Prairie. The boys were enthusiastic and ready to start a more successful season. The hrst innings of the game were dominated by Eden Prairie. However, in the hfth inning Dennis Martin hit a home run which gave the Little Gophers a very good chance of winning later in the game. A single in the seventh by Doug Burn put the Little Gophers ahead to win. 32 BASEBALL TEAM: Standing: Legler, jones, Martin. Sitting back: Muligen, Gold, Schwartz. Front: Flood, Bell, Anderson. X . track -- The Little Gopher cindermen were better this year than they have been in the past few seasons. In the first meet of the year with Minneapolis Marshall, the Cardinals came close to winning but the Little Go- phers came through to win with the score of 49-46. The meet with Mound was rough for the U. High team, which came out on the long end with the score of 652-492. Next on the schedule was the meet with Concordia. They were trampled by the Little Gophers by a decisive score of 50-35. Both Robbins- dale and U. High were literally drowned at the sta- dium for their scheduled meet. After the low hurdle, the meet was called because of rain. golf Wim three lettermen returning from last year's dis- trict championship squad, the U. High golf team opened thc season with an 11-1 victory over Mound. The Little Gophers continued their winning ways, defeating VVayZata XZ-SM. The following week the boys met Blake, the only team to defeat them in dual meets last year, and once again U. High lost, this time by a score of SZ-SZ. Coming hack to the Uni- versity Course, the U. Highites defeated lireck, 10-2. ln the six remaining meets, the '48 squad is hoping to equal the record of last year's team, and go on to cop the district championship again. tennis Tins year U. High's tennis team went into its season with a reputation to uphold. Last year's net squad had driven through to cop the district championship. Two lettermen from the championship combination, Dean Constantine and lim Flinn, returned to holster the current squad which was rounded out by new- comers Byron Rudolphi, Don Gihlin, and Dick Mi- cheels. The racquet-men dropped the first match to Deephaven, 2-5. However, Dean Constantine took the singles event and then teamed with lim Flinn to win one of the doubles sets. ln, the next match with St. Louis Park, the Little Gophers picked up mo- mentum to triumph, 5-2. However, the third match was dropped 1-3 to a classy Breck team. GOLF TEAM: Tungen, C. johnson, B.

Ed. classes in the fall quar- ter. Through practice they saw much improve- ment in these skills. In the winter quarter they took up basketball and challenged West, South, Minneapolis Cen- tral, St. Anthony, Monroe and Murray High Schools. They also tried a hand at badminton which also proved successful. The spring quar- ter brought such sports as bowling, swimming, archery and golf which were all enjoyed under the over-all supervision of Mary Bermingham. 34 boys' gym UNDER the supervision of Coach Person, the boys enjoyed numerous activities during the fourth hour, eighth hour, and in intramural athletic programs. Throughout the fall quarter their activities included touch football, soccer, speedball, and swimming. In the winter quarter the traditional inter-class and all-nations basketball tournaments were held. The Senior team and a star-studded Irish team came out with top honors in their respective contests. Besides basketball, the gym classes also took up gymnastics, boxing, handball, and archery. With the coming of the spring quarter, the boys were eager to move outside again. Track, tennis and base- ball were their main activities. "U" CLUB: First Row: Clayton johnson, Mahozuald, Pres.

The Hrst week of school found the office filled with bewildered stu- dents leaning against the filing cabinets, sprawled on the couch, or simply gazing into space. They all wanted the same question answered, "Where do we g-OP3, Football games were as much fun as ever, even if the majority of them were held away from home. Lack of lights on Northrop field upset our plans for home games. After all, football can't be played in the dark! You can remember the Homecoming game since it was the debut of U. High's pep baud. The Homecoming dance was a big success as usual. One nice thing about the temporary building was that for a few months you had a place to park your car, that is, until the building was completed! Remember "you can humor me any time" -- "come up and see me any old time" - way hack when - hmm, nice proflel- comfortable - happy, loan? - "I hid no trump" - how we all griped about where the makeshift was located, but you'll have to admit that we took over every bit of available space as soon as it was finished. About the middle of the quarter a snowstorm brought us luck. A mad rush was made through the library door as the announcement of the unexpected holiday was made. The faculty also gave us a little extra spare time by having a meeting on a school day. The coke machine in Shevlin, arriving soon after Christmas, seemed like another present. Noon time became one of the highlights of the day, with lunch tables being used for bridge and schmeer games. Thoughts turned toward the four main winter sports -basketball, wrestling, swimming, and hockey. The crowds at the games were led in peppy cheers by the three new cheerleaders. Cnce more Shevlin became the place of many good parties. tramp? - it w0n't it john - Dewey the operator - smilin' through - cheek to cheek - which one is it? -- catch a big one? - quit muggirf, Ffa! Sis Riggs a-tellin' lrzles czgin. Not even losing a football game could dampen the fanfare of the annual Homecoming. From the pep band at the game to the parties afterwards, everyone celebrated. Climaxing the weekend was the dance at which Lois Pearson was crowned Homecoming Queen. The queen's attendants-Betty Bergquist, Ia- net Nelson, and Peg Paterson-looked on while foot- ball captain Tom Ohrbeck gave Putz her royal kiss. Among the many all-school parties, the Christmas party, sponsored by Senate, was one of the most suc- cessful. Coach Person entered into the spirit by enact- ing Santa Claus, and Sherman Bell received a huge cake as the prize for naming the Home Ee. mascot. All the atmosphere of the gaslight theatre era was brought back to U. High with the presentation of the old-fashioned melodrama, "Aaron Slick from Punkin, Crick." The decorations and programs as well as the play itself were in the gay nineties motif, and the audience entered into the spirit of the occasion by hissing John Doyle, the villain, and cheering Aaron. the hero, played by Clark Iohnson. The gullible Widow who had lost her heart to Aaron was played 40 wif' I C1771 El mess' . . . by Florence Maxwell while Iudy Alexander was the impish hired girl. Sue Smilow posed as the spoiled city gal while Barbara Hammond was the alluring Lady in Red. Iohn McElligott was 'fthe poet who didn't know it." A good share of the evening's fun was provided by the variety acts during intermissions. Another unusual event occurred on February 20 when the Iunior Class gave the girls their chance at the Leap Year Basket Ball. The girls carried through their roles even to purchasing boutonnieres for their dates. The program of assemblies this year presented a blend of the light and the serious. One of the best remem- bered assemblies featured VVilson High Schoolis Ger- man band. Another outstanding program found car- toonist Oz Black sketching caricatures of students and faculty. The senior assembly concluded the assemblies for theyear. Tears were mixed with laughter as the seniors said goodbye. Memories of Highlites will long bring dreamy feelings and chuckles. The Barber Shop Quartet made gradu- ation seem even closer with their "ickies with the sheers" diplomas. Effects of lighting, along with the Remember Remember Remember . . and lo all ll good night! end men, certainly helped to make the Minstrel Show a success. We all gave a cheer to Mr. Iung when the event was concluded after two terrific performances. The senior class broke away from the tradition of a three-act play and presented three one-act comedies. The group was entitled 'gThree for Laughter." HI-Iappy Iourney," "Sunday Costs Five Pesos," and "Antic Spring" were the plays, each play was fun- nier than the last. Mr. Brink did a marvelous job of not only directing but keeping tab on the seniors as much as possible. The fun started for the cast and crew long before the time of the big performance ar- rived. Drilling on lines, painting sets and all the rest that goes into a play kept a large number of the Class busy. Afterward came cleaning up and the removing of makeup. The cast, especially those in 'gSunday Costs Five Pesos," stood for hours, with jars of cold cream and Kleenex, rubbing determinedly. The senior class plays were probably remembered in a different way by each person, but however they're remem- bered, they were fun for all. , . ..., Futhcfs a drunlgurd, and Mother is dead feature With the Biz pictures and photographers came one of the most trying days for the teachers. In the middle of class they heard the oft-repeated phrase, "Excuse me, but I'm having my picture taken in five min- utes." The day was finally ended by the blowing of the main fuse. Parents began missing their children weeks before the all-school play, but rehearsal could not be inter- rupted! However, this was just another school ac- tivity which involved loss of outside time. Almost at the end of winter quarter, the Iunior Class gave a Basketball Leap Year Dance at Coffman Memorial Union. With spring quarter, nice Weather arrived, encourag- ing the kids to take to the lawns during their lunch hour. Hi hlites came to distract our thou hts tem- . g g porarily from vacation. It was hard work, but in the end Hi hlites roved to be worth it. S P freshman glamour - happy new yearfuf T.

S. The editors of the Breeze sighed as the last issue came through on schedule, and we all tucked our copy away in our memory books. No one was found without a pen or pencil the day this book came out. It holds all the memories we wanted to remember. The night the seniors marched down the aisle in the Grand Ballroom to receive their diplomas, perhaps you were one of those who looked a little sad. For the seniors, this meant their last high school event, and for the rest of us the last event of a wonderful year at memorable U.

IUDITH ALEXANDER Iudy, in real life, is just like the character she created in "Aaron Slick," Sis Riggs. Her energy has carried through to Choir, G.A.A., Dramatic Club, Spanish Club, and reporting for the Breeze. Her spare time is taken up with sports and collecting pictures. BARBARA AUGUSTC JN If you want Barb, try the Home Ec. room. She may be sewing, but she'll whip you up a meal in no time at all. Barb has served on the Red Cross Committee, and has been a member of Choir and Bridge Club. Barb was very active in the Senior Class as Secretary. PHYLLIS AYARS Phil has been active in U. High for four years. She was presi- dent of the Home Economics Club and also took part in Bridge Club, Dramatic Club, and Latin Club, and was on the Red Cross Committee and Li- brary Board. She contributed a lot to the Breeze as a reporter. ELISABETH BAER Betty's most distinctive fea- ture is her unusual vitality. Fortunately, none of it was lost as editor of the Biz. Her activities included Girls' Club Cabinet and Council, Senate, Creative Writing Club, All- School play, Iournalism Hon- or Society and Acme. BETTY BERGQUIST Berkie is really a blond bomb- shell. She has taken part in Pep Club QSee-Treas.g Presj, Dramatic and Spanish Clubs, Library Board, Choir, was on the Biz Staff, and was a re- porter for the Breeze. Berkie was a peppy cheerleader for two years. ARDES BLUMSTEIN Anyone on the lookout for good writers is sure to come across Ardes' name. Not only is she active in the Creative Writing Club, but she is also a very talented artist. All her talents should stand her in good stead in her chosen vo- cation, architecture. IOANNE BRAUN Beauty and brains do come in one package. Ioanne was one of the few sophomores who accelerated this year. She took part in the Dramatic Club, Choir, G.A.A., and Red Cross Comm. She plans to attend Gustavus Adolphus College, but as yet her vocation is un- decided. MARY CARLSON One of Mary's many interests is designing and making her own clothes, in which she has displayed great ingenuity. She has also shown her ability in Creative Writing Club, and lands Bridge Club and reading a relaxing relief from her heavy schedule. 4 ADELE CHRISTOPHERSON Adele,s talents turn to art. When she isn't Writing for the Breeze or Biz, you can find her painting and sketching. In the four years Adele has been at U. High, she has been a member of Dramatic Club, Choir, and Latin and Spanish Clubs. This fall, she plans to enter Macalester. RUTH COHEN Ruthie is a very talented girl. Her art work has been well appreciated around school, and none of us will forget her famous schmoe-boys she drew. During her three years, Ruth- ie's activities have included Pep, Spanish and Dramatic Clubs, Choir, Library Board, Biz and Breeze. ROSE MARIE CURRIE Rosie came to U. High dur- ing summer school, and liked it so well that she just stayed. She became a part of school quickly, and joined Radio Club, Dramatic Club and Home Economics Club. She was also a member of the art appreciation section of Girls, Club. GERTRUDE DE GEUS Trudy surprised everyone by accelerating into our class this year. In addition to keeping up her scholastic standing, she found time for German Club, Choir, Dramatic Club and Breeze. Trudy's musical in- terest is shown by her fine piano playing and her collec- tion of records. IACK DORFMAN U. High gained a great ath- lete when Iack placed his name on its roll call. His in- terest in sports was shown in football, Wrestling QCap.j, and track. This year, lack took first in the state heavyweight division. Iack's ability has won for him a scholarship to Tu- lane. BILL DOYLE Billy will be remembered for his high tackling record in football. Though an outstand- ing football player, he was a member of the Bridge and U. Clubs, Hi-Y, and Choir.
