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. IFJ 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 year. Another class not quite so new, but still unusual. is the combined English and social studies course. This year the course was only being given to the seventh and eighth grades. but plans are be- l'c1'.f011m'f.'

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 classes: lirst. to Ujfia' Stay: Xlrs.

Pylp ohn XVll5OI1 D bundberg Lebo E423 BASEBALL 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 overcome. 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- ference. TRACK 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 the team. 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. Fl.l'.ff Roux' R. Allen. XI. Mills. R. Carlson. Larimer. T. Heintzeman. KI.

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- feats. 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. If 44 I Top Row: Franzen, Bishop, Flood, Pater- son. Sccorzd Row: Friedman, Foley, I. Harris.

WRESTLING 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. Top Row: Mason, Gisvold. Friedman.

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- sibilities. 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. TENNIS 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. E451 BOYS' GYM 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 chance professionally. GQRLS' GYM Girls' gym is compulsory for grades eight, nine, and ten, and elective for grades eleven and twelve. Instructed by Miss Mary Bermingham and assisted by student teachers the girls meet three times a week. Two days are usually spent doing exercises. The other day, usually Friday, is spent doing any one of a number of offered sports activities. During the fall quarter, the girls organized teams and played soccer and volleyball. Folk dancing and swim- ming were the choices of the classes during winter quar- ter. Spring quarter, the girls elected softball as their activity. All these activities are under the direction of Girls' Ath- letic Association. G.A.A. elects ofhcers and directs all their functions in accordance with the national organiza- tion. Closely affiliated with this is 'LM', Club. As with boys' "U" Club, "Mn Club is the girls' letter winners' club. Letters are awarded to girls who have shown meritori- ous work in the field of athletics. The girls organized a basketball team that played several other girls' teams in the Twin Cities high schools.

CLUB 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 LETTER WINNERS Mills, Ruud, C. Pyle, Gisvold, R. Allen, Micheels, L. Swanson, Trnka, D. Martin, Coach Pesonen, Lehmann. Tfifrd Row: Mooney, Flood, Bell.

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. FOOTBALL E. Rensfeldt TENNIS Otto GOLF SQUAD R. Allen Rudolphi Bishop Pauling Friedman T. Anderson Ruud Ciblin L.
