Ed Smith? He's the spirit of U-High and six, because of six different grades. They were all anxious to start the new school year off with a bang. To help them along the juniors sponsored the football homecoming dance and queen campaign. The older Eds were a little iealous of football captain, Kenny Mohn as they watched him kiss queen Diddie Odlund. Her attendants were the other candidates: Barbara Barrows, Connie Muehlbach, and Sue Smilow.

That day he also had fun watching the various language initiations. Ed got his first taste of the theater, when the second-year speech class gave "The Class Menagerie." The beginning of winter came with skating parties and sleigh-rides. Several Eds froze their toes, but not so badly that they couIdn't attend the annual Holiday Hop. With this dance, came the end of fall quarter. "Et tu, Brute" Billy the Kid "I do swear to . . ."

Ed showed up at every basketball game, to cheer the team on. To celebrate the basketball home- coming, Ed sat on Kenny Mohn's shoulder as he crowned Mary Ann Davison queen, and announced her attendants, Sherry Evans and Kalitsa Mavroulis. February found Ed at the Mardi Gras unsuccessfully trying to guess the Mystery Lady. He found out later she was Carole Bouthilet. Music for this party was by "Two B's and a Bop," the U-High jazz trio.

He sat in the back row of 210 ond laughed himself sick and he almost missed Sixth Hour class. He had to stay up late too, with John McHardy and John Horris as they worked hard developing pictures for the forthcoming yearbook, the Bisbila. March 21 was the first day of spring and it was nearly vocation. Ed was happy as he cleaned out his locker, following instruc- tions, but one look at the seventy-four inches of snow ond he groaned "This is RIDICULOUSV' ". . . And in conclusion .

When the "School for Scandal" was given in April, Ed was very proud. Other rehearsals, this time for "H.M.S. Pinafore," were climaxed at a performance for the Unified Arts Festival.

The 1950 Little Gophers suffered a losing season. lt is certain, however, that the team doesn't feel the season a total loss, because of the valuable experience they gained. This was the first year of actual play for most of the team with very few experienced players. These boys were responsi- ble for much of the good work in games this year. Next year U-High will be missing five seniors from the team, including captain Kenny Mohn. This loss will be felt next fall, but will be offset by the many boys who gained experience this year. The first game of the season was at Chaska. The kickoff was made with the Little Gophers receiving the ball on their 30-yard line, and going for a 70-yard touchdown drive. After this, Chaska scored four times in the game, bringing the score to 26-6. Next week the team met Bloomington at home. Their playing was much improved, but despite the team's efforts, they lost, l9-6. A wet afternoon game with Norwood-Young America ended in the Little Gophers' defeat. The score was O-12, after a scoreless first half. At Deephaven the U-High gridders suffered the worst defeat of the season. Deepheaven scored six times, making the score 38-O. Spirits soared before the Waconia game. Waconia scored twice, but the Gophers tied the score in the second half. Then the opposition made another touchdown and the heartbreaking game ended with U-High on the losing side, l9-l2. Our Homecoming game with Watertown found U-High unable to get within 35 yards of the goal during any part of the game. The game ended at 38-O. 'v U-High ..,. ... 6-26. .. ......

Although the l95O-51 basketball team at U-High was much improved over last year, the cagers once again failed to break .500. Led by captain Kenny Mohn, who scored l25 points and was made all-conference, the Little Gophers won only five games and lost eleven. Aided by senior veterans Darrell Gisvold and Larry Mooney the team picked up speed and spirit. Although the team will lose three of its top men this year they will still be able to rely on starters Rog Pyle, Ed. Brown, and Craig Stout. With steady coaching and plenty of scrimmage outside of school it may be possible to have a good team next year. 34 Larr Mooney Ed Brown Darrell Gisvold Ro er P le Y 9 Y U-High .... . . .

Craig Stout with a lot of good work behind him shows promise. There will also be veterans such as .lon Lokensgaard, Ernie Gellhorn, John Wilson, Roger Pyle, and Eddy Brown. Many of these boys played "A" squad basketball this year, so they will be the mainstays of next year's team. Back row left to right Bryer Skovran, Plauda, Swansen, Baker, Coach Wasnick.

However, the two matches that they did win were decisive victories for the mat- men, St. Paul Central and Edina being the losers. Captain Bill Hunt was U-High's best individual wrestler, as he placed second in the regionals, and fourth in the state. Bill was this year's captain. Don Meyers and Jim Ellis also stood out by winning most of their matches. Some of the other wrestlers were Ken Baker, Warren Ellis, Don Heintzman, Owen Plauda and Jerry Line. Graduation will only claim .lerry Line, Bud Fuhrman, and Jim McDaniel, so next year's team can look forward to a very successful season. 36 ! f ,jj .-murm Kalton J Lund F Davis J. Harris, J.

The record of four losses and two wins cannot start to show the determination and spirit that the mermen displayed. After dropping the first four meets to Minneapolis Central, West, Roosevelt, and St. Paul Central, the little gopher mermen splashed back to victory in their last two meets against St. Paul Murray and Humboldt. With the help of returning swimmers Dick Franzen, Leonard Kane and Eugene Carlson, the little gophers may hope for a more suc- cessful season next year. John Harris, Terry Hagen, Paul Curtis and John Wolf contributed much to the teams' experi- ences and sportsmanship. Dick Franzen was this year's captain. 37 If 'F Proposed New University 'TH-7 'Ill' I .4.f' UF nu H I I I lllii P l U'I,Isl1l' F1iif'Fllll'Qgf+Iiigi filuflkyg 5 f-'JQ'Q'?L'Q.'Q High School M 'k Our Hopes In Years To Come CLS nv First row, left to right: D.

This year the queen received a locket as a remembrance. Presiding as officers this year were: Harriet Wolkoff, as president, lrwin Bloom, vice president, Marilyne Mears, secretary, and Jack Wilson, treasurer. They worked hard, and with the cooperation of the iunior class and their home room advisors, Dr. Boeck, Mrs. Michalson and Mr. Knox, they achieved the goal they were reaching for.

Mr. Bens, Mr. Kellogg, and Mr. Stark provided their all-masculine guidance as the tenth grade advisors. The main proiect of the sophomores this year was to promote school spirit within the class. This obiective was accomplished through parties and other proiects. One of the parties was a hayride held during tall quarter.
