You HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE, in fact a few decisions. 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. .

M1N.ARD STOUT, principal of University High School,
came from Rochester, Minnesota in june, 1947.
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.

of his major concerns is the question 'WVhat Col-
lege?" Another is "What job?" Personal problems of
every conceiveable type find some solution in his tiny
cubicle. julia Nygaard, girls' counselor, is also con-
fronted with many of the same problems, each with
a more feminine outlook. The big question, HCareers
for girls?" is hers to help each girl solve.

Seiaxes: Ever heard of Pithecanthropus Erectusi Ben Whit-
inger, biology instructor and AVOC advisor, can tell you that
and much more. 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
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-

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-
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

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. She also has
led the G.A.A. activities the past two years.

Soox after school started the lunior class launched its
Hrst major activity-Qthe planning and sponsoring of
the Homecoming Dance. 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.

THE SOPHS can look back on many accomplishments
and a good deal of social gaiety this year. 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
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.

ENHANCED by many new members, the class of '51
soon became a friendly and active group. 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.

eighth and seventh grades
FEELING themselves to be old ti1r1ers with a year of experience be-
hind them, the eighth grade proved to be an energetic class. 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

THis YEAR Senate succeeded in being more representative of the opinion of
the student body. 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. These officers and representatives begin their
terms the following school year.
An im ortant function of the Senate was carried on b the Part Com-
P Y Y
mittee. It advised the clubs and classes on their party plans and various other
details. This policy was designed to insure against the chances of any or-
anizations takin a financial loss.

Miller, Ieanne Pieper, Ioan Smilow, Shirley Hatch.
Pat Scott, Peg Paterson, and Clark johnson. Greta
Nelson and john Fibiger represented the juniors.
The purpose of the National Honor Society is to

seniors. Out of each graduating class, fifteen per-
cent are eligible to belong to the societyg five
percent may be admitted during their junior year.
IOURNALISRI Honor Society is the highest achievement

THE MA OR roblem which faced the Biz at the be in-

ning of the year was that of raising money. The stu-
dents took the matter in hand b decidin to donate
a dollar a iece. The minor uroblem consisted of the
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

To THE staff of the Campus Breeze, Saturday meant
another day at school with hard work ahead. For it
was on Saturday that the staff and reporters, under
the supervision of Richard Alm, advisor, rewrote and
headlined those last minute scoops. This year's staff
was headed by Marie Geist, editor in chief, associate
editors were lean Endress, front page, Ianet Nelson,
feature, Leonard Strouse, sports, Pat Scott and Sue
Hirsch, back page, and lean Pieper, feature co-editor.
Assistants included Greta Nelson and Bill Swanson.
Pat Drew acted as exchange editor and Barb Norman
headed the typists. An innovation was the float period
work hour which gave the entire staff and reporters
an opportunity to learn more about journalism.

SENIOR High Girls' Club made a decided change in
its organization. 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
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.

THE jtzxioiz High Girls' Club has spent a busy year
under the leadership of Kathy Coram. As president,
she with her cabinet, guided the reconstruction of the
younger girls, club into various interest groups. 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

PRESENTING movies and records
and operating the P.A. system, the
A.V.O.C., under the direction of
Ben Whitinger, has given many
services to the school. The seven-
teen members under the leader-
ship of Tom Hoetger, president,
and Barry Prichard, secretary,
have done their best to carry out
new projects. One of the main at-
tractions was the disc jockey pro-
gram titled i'Noontime Nocturne"
which was put on several times a
week during both lunch hours.
In order to raise money, the
A.V.O.C. sponsored many con-
tests and gave away records to

the group cavorted through a fun and exercise-
charged year. Within the organization itself, the girls
have the 'avr' Club, an honorary group equivalent to
that of the boys' "UH Club. Members of the HM"

HAVE you ever wondered how some of the books and
magazines stacked on the desk in the library got
back on the shelves? 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. A new
addition this year is a file which will contain clip-
pings concerning U. High, its students and alumni.

UNDER the advisorship of Mr. Brink, the Speech Ac-
tivities Club divided into two sections, theater and
radio. Two masterpieces were produced by the or-
ganization. The first was the radio division's version
of AAWCSICYII Starw given for the Thanksgiving assem-
bly. The second was the all-school play, HAaron Slick
from Punkin' Crick." Several performances of this
novelty had to be given before everyone was satisfied.

NSU' UP straight and take a deep breathw were the
familiar words of Mr. lung, the director, in his Mixed
Chorus. 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.
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.

High fumbled and the Mohawks recovered to start
a march that led to the only touchdown of the game.
Probably the Gopherites' best game of the season
was with Hopkins. 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
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. 'lfhe
team went to work quickly as they stopped the liluef

remainder of the game, although the Bluejays gave
U. High a scare in the last few minutes.
Inspired by the Excelsior win, the Gopher team en-
tered the Hrst quarter against Forest Lake by recover-
ing a blocked punt. Bob Allen then carried the mail
from the 22 for a touchdown. 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. High one-half yard line and with Fine blocking
he ran 99 yards for a touchdown, which unfortu-
nately was called back.
The one and only game under the new lights was

Homecoming, which ended in a 20-0 defeat. St. Louis
Park started their victory by chalking up two touch-
downs in the first and second quarters. In the few
waning seconds of the half, Bill Doyle brought the
ball to the one yard line, This was the closest the Go-
phers came to the Orioles' goal line. Park tallied once
more in the fourth quarter.
Wayzata's unfamiliar XYZ formation tricked the U.
High men to run up a big score. During the hrst
quarter, the Trojans edged the Gophers back near
their goal. NVhile attempting to punt, the ball was
centered a little high. Consequently, Wayzata received
a safety. After that they started to roll into pay dirt.
The Trojans, excellent teamwork helped them to win
the game by a decisive 31-0 score.

Foil 'rim second time in two years, the University
High basketball team ended the season at the bottom
of the Lake Conference. At the start of the schedule
the boys showed signs of playing good basketball, but
seldom were they able to put together four quarters
of it. The season opened with the Little Gophers los-
ing a close contest at North St. Paul, 22-19.
Playing at the Field House for the first time, the

for going into the last quarter the score was 21-20.
ln the next game the Mohawks from Mound couldn't
miss as they ran up a 37-21 half-time lead. The game
ended with the score at 47-36. The following Friday
the U. Highites dropped a close contest to a scrappy
Excelsior quint, 24-18. The six point difference at the
final gun was the largest edge held by the Bluejays.
january 13 found Wayzata beating the Little Gophers,
37-24. Mike Leahy played an outstanding defensive
game in holding All-Conference Forward Dave Koch

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. In the last con-

into the win column with a 34-23 victory over St.
Paul Academy. Clayton Iohnson played one of his
best games, scoring 19 points. The next two the Per-

U. 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 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.
BASEBALL TEAM: Standing: Legler,
jones, Martin. Sitting back: Muligen, Gold,
Schwartz. Front: Flood, Bell, Anderson.
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.
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.
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.

learnin' anything, boys?
Soccisiz and volleyball were the games the girls
played in the Phy. 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.
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.

UNDER the guidance of Coach Person and ollicers
Doug Burn, Gene Schafer, and lim Flinn, the U
Club, lettermen's organization, has had one of its
most active years. The boys sponsored the faculty-
student basketball game in which the students were
victorious, 25-21. The main activity of the year, the
initiation dance given during Spring Quarter at the
Theodore Wirth Chalet, brought almost a one-hun-
dred percent turnout. The club initiated the popular
noon hour movies this year.

FALL quarter started with the typical confusion of
getting classes straightened out. 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
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.

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.

Widow who had lost her heart to Aaron was played

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

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.

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
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-

end Hi hlites roved to be worth it.

The month of May was one of confusion with the
juniors and seniors trying to get their formals and
tuxes in shape for the biggest event of the year,
the I. 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. High.
