MR. STERLING MITCHELL
Sterling H. Mitchell, who has been
assistant principal for three years,
has a big iob at U. High. He is in
charge of passes, admit slips, ex-
cuses, and discipline, and he sched-
ules all of the classes and rooms. Be-
sides this, he has the important iob
of advising the Senate. Like many of
our teachers, he is also a graduate
student in the College of Education.
Mr. Mitchell came from Syracuse
University in New York, where he
took his graduate work. During the
war he served in the Navy.
DR. MINARD STOUT
Dr. Minard Stout has been at C.
High for two years as principal.
During that time he has attempted
to stabilize staff policy by securing
permanent department heads. In line
with his efforts to make U. High a
leading laboratory school, Dr. Stout
hopes the College of Education will
build a new high school with money
recently appropriated by the state
legislature. In addition to directing
school curriculum, Dr. Stout is chair-
man of the Executive Committee.
He is also an instructor in the Lol-
lege of liducation.
Something new has been added to U. High. An
otiicial chorus and orchestra are being olfered for
credit. Mr. Ioe lung, music instructor. feels that
activities like these give the students a chance to
work together. Not only the students participating,
btit everyone in the school will benelit. To stimu-
late more interest. an award is being given to the
students in orchestra or chorus who have made the
greatest contributions to music at U. High this

grade in the prof
gram. Next year the senior class will be divided
into three sections. Miss Edith XVest will teach one
ot the classes and Nlr. Dwight liurton will teach
the second. The third grotip will have separate
classes as in the past.
The math and science departments also have a
combined class for the eighth grade. They feel
that the students will be able to make better use
of their mathematical knowledge when they can
actually see how it will apply to daily situations.
Since most of the students at Li. High plan to
attend college. there is a greater demand lior eolf
lege preparatory work. A general fourkpoint plan
is used in all

ture. XVith a good basic understanding ol' foreign
nations. one world will be a closer reality. Miss

This year a question arose as to whether or not there
should he two maior sports-such as hasehall and
track-or whether one should he selected and stressed.
liut since both teams have done quite well there is lit-
tle douht that either shall he dropped.
Since several of last year's lettermen were ineligihle.
this year's baseball squad was composed almost en-
tirely of sophomores and freshmen. Although they
lack experience and polish, they have the possibilities
of developing into a first class hasehall squad. A very
good indication of this was a decisive Win over a vet-
eran squad from Breck School in St. Paul.
The Gophers got off to an early lead, only to have
the Mustangs come through with several timely hits
to top the Gophermen in the first of the third inning.
Then a rally with one and a half innings to go pro-
duced an eight to six score that the Breckmen couldn't
This year the Gophers didn't compete in the Lake
Conference, but instead scheduled games independ-
ently. Next year, with confidence and a little luck,
the Gophers will make their mark in the Valley Con-
The track team this year was the best it has been in
the past two years. As it is with all sports at U. High,
we have good athletes but not enough of them.
For the past two years the track squad has been build-
ing. This year, being composed mainly of seniors, it
had an edge on many ol' the other schools in experif
ence, even though it was handicapped because of
small enrollment and a consequent lack of depth on
U. High did well in various invitational meets which
they entered, around the state, because of a few out-
standing stars, but in dual meets we lost several close
decisions because of the lack of depth. Besides the
various dual meets and triangular meets with the
other conference schools, U. High was invited to
compete in the Carleton and St. john's Relays, the
Mound Relays. and the St. Thomas invitational which
was started this year.
At the Mound Relays. U. High placed fifth with sixf
teen points: while at Carleton. the team placed seventh
in Class S. with eleven points.

U. High's second year in swimming competition was
not as impressive as the initial year because: first,
since the backbone of the powerful swimming team
is its crawl stroke strength, the loss of two strong crawl
strokers from last year's lineup made it hard for U.
High to hold its own. Second, last year's team ar-
ranged meets as the season progressed. This year,
with pre-season scheduling, practically every strong
team in the Twin Cities was met. The season's record
indicated eight defeats and two victories, the two
wins were scored over St. Patil Marshall and St. Patil
Monroe. A factor in these wins was a superior medley
relay team which completed the season with no de-
Prospects for the future teams look good. Several
promising swimmers can be seen already. With good
coaching like that given by Roger Alman this year,
championship possibilities are in sight.

Although the team scores of the wrestling squad were
not impressive, there was much individual honor,
especially among the younger members.
The squad as a whole lived up to all predictions. The
wins and losses record does not depict the true scene.
ln most cases, each individual match was very close
throughout the dual meets and district and regional
tournaments. Although U. High had no participants
in the state tournament, this year's squad has im-
proved considerably over that of last year.
Next year, it is predicted, will be a very promising
year for the team and for the individual grapplers.
Because of the fact that this year's squad was inex-
perienced in most weight classes, these same classes
have been strengthened. Another factor is that most
of next year's team will he in the younger grades with
two and three years to participate in Wrestling.

A golf team composed of inexperienced golfers took
to the links in early April to discover how to Whittle
a few strokes from their scores.
The graduation of the entire championship squad
of last year had left this year's clubbers with no vet-
eran nucleus. However, the group of recruits which
answered the opening practice call showed good pos-
Realizing that practice and more practice is the key
to a lower score, the golfers spent long sessions on
the University course where they picked up valuable
pointers. Since school dismisses at 4:00, practice work-
outs had to be limited to nine holes.
The team started the season very poorly, but as they
gained experience, their match play improved. With
four men returning next year, the golf team hopes
for a return to championship form.
Making the greatest comeback in sports this year was
tennis. After the fine team of last year which was
ruined by graduation, there was little hope for this
season. The Hrst match was with Deephaven and
they won 3-2. The second match with Deephaven was
our first victory with the score of 5-O. The other two
matches recorded at this time were lost to Breck
and St. Patil Murray. Due to circumstances beyond
our control we are unable to record the other scores.
However, plans were made to meet the other schools
in the lake conference, together with a few non-con-
ference games. Several schools from the new confer-
ence which U. High will ioin next year were included.
The squad this year consists of only ten men. Seven
of these are seniors who will be leaving. The return-
ing lettermen will have to recruit new members in
order to prevent tennis from being discontinued from
the athletics now offered.
This year boys' gym was put to good use by all who
took "the little walk." The gym period was used for
the learning of games through actual participation.
Coach Oiva Pesonen divided the gym course into weekly
periods which were supervised by his assistants. For a
few weeks the boys played touch football on that Mvel-
vety" held on Fourth Street.
Then they Went to the pool in Cooke Hall, for a few
weeks of aqua maneuvers. After they dragged the pool
for the non-swimmers, the boys went merrily upstairs
to the basketball courts. The courts were the scene of
many a battle between the different grades, with the
seniors coming out on top. From there, those that were
left, went not too happily, back to the pool. The second
time in the pool, the boys got interested in "legal mur-
der" otherwise known as water polo. The polo season
ended with a game between the juniors and seniors
which ended 0 to 0, and was highlighted by the acci-
dental swan dive by Coach Pesonen. Then the boys
went back to the velvet field to play softball, and as we
leave them, they're still arguing about who has the best
Girls' gym is compulsory for grades eight, nine, and ten,

ter. Spring quarter, the girls elected softball as their

VVhen people speak of active organizations, they
think first of U. Club. U. Club is the boysf athletic
club. To qualify for membership, a boy must first
win a letter in a major school sportg then-and this
isn't easy-he must pass through the initiation.
U. Club has done more this year than in many pre-
vious years. Under the leadership of Coach Pesonen
and President Leonard Swanson, U. Club really be-
came active. During the football season, the boys

sponsored a dance in the University's Y.M.C.A. which
was open to all schools in the Lake Conference. The
club had charge of ticket sales for the basketball
games and it organized and supervised intramural
basketball. Again this year the club sponsored the
traditional Athletic Banquet which is attended by
lettermen, the fathers, and the men on the U. High
staff. The banquet was held in Coffman Union on
May 17. Also in May, the initiation ceremony for
new members was held.
