Every morning from room 203, faint strains ot music can be heard creeping out from under the door and floating through the open transoms. Look in on any social or academic activity and you will see A.V.O.C. members helping everyone who needs their services. A.V.O.C. stands for Audio Visual Operators Club. Headman in Avoc this year was John Osterberg. Terry Olotson, secretary, worked hard with John to make sure all assignments got to the right person at the designated time. Rushing a public address system to a pep test, a movie or a class, records and a phonograph to a dance in Shevlin kept each member on the run. The boys learned a lot about audio- visual machines, while they rendered a valuable service to the school. The organization is open to boys in grades 9 through l2. New members are taken early in the spring and are put through rigorous training by the club's faculty advisor, Ben Whittinger.

Serving the school by supplying pictures for Biz, Breeze, and other organizations, Photo Service became one of U. High's most useful clubs. Ellsworth Erickson, the advisor, informally taught the club mem- bers the "art of photography." By taking pictures at football games, parties, dances, and all-school events, Photo Service really aided the picture editors of Biz and Breeze. Helping the departments, was another service the club performed. Photo Service could always be called to take pictures for classes and record activities in demonstration groups, thus setting up a visual record. Faculty and student body share equally the benefits of Photo Service. Photo Service is open to any senior high student with an active interest in photography. Bill Johnston was club president and Don Backstrom was secretary-treasurer. "Very good, now try it with film," was heard constantly through the year. ine members of Junior High Photo Club, under the direction of their faculty advisor Ellsworth Erickson, went on to their second year of learning the art and technique of photography. The purpose of the Photo Club is to introduce the junior high boys to the art of photography and also prepare them for work in senior high. The organization is open to any boy or girl in the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades who has an interest in photography. Officers this year were: president, Leon Locabanne, who was also one of the originators of the organization, vice-president, George Moskol, secretary and clerk, Tom Quaid. They all joined forces to make the club a success. PHCD 0 LUB 9 left to right: George Moskol, Doug Grim, Glen Wong, Bob Ber- ny, Tom Quaid, John Oren, Bill Anklom, leon Locabanne, BI BIL Dummy! Layouts! Copy! Deadlines! These were familiar words in the Biz room as the staff frantically worked to get the Bisbila on the press. Layouts were worked out by each section editor. Each editor was helped by the art staFf to arrange his or her layouts in an artistic manner. The art staff also designed division pages and drew all the cartoons for the book. Copy was written by each section editor, checked by the copy editor, and retyped ,on "copy sheets" for the printer. Deadlines were met at the American Yearbook Company. The Executive Board met and worked personally with the publisher and printer. Their cooperation and constructive suggestions were a great asset in teaching the staff yearbook responsibilities. lt was a thrill for the Bisbila staft to see their book rolling off the presses. The "dummy" soon changed from a rough, crudely drawn plan to a refined, printed yearbook! Front row, left to right: Sally Eastland, Marilyn John son.

Beat reporters helped in maintaining the "All- American" rating that the paper has held from i937 to 1952. Heading the staff of the 1952-53 Breeze was Jay Goldberg, editor- in-chief. Kallitsa Mavroulis, copy reader, and her assistant, Kate Coffey, saw to it that the copy was in good shape when it went to the printers. "Two cars in every garage and a column in every issue" was the do or die cry of news editors Carol Christmas and Kay Klinkerfues. Chuck Christensen and Jackie Jaenisch assisted them. The funny bone of the paper, feature page, was edited by Sue Levin. Assisting her were James Gerald and Mary Lee Van Ness. Hav- ing his name first under the familiar "Sports Reports" was one dis- tinguishing feature of sports editor Jim Awada. Bill Harris, Roger John- son, and Mike Mann assisted Jim. Exchanging copies of the Breeze with other schools was the iob of Mitch Johnson. "Down Breeze statt, down," is the phrase that has become asso- ciated with Breeze advisor, Jeanne Haagenstad.

The main purpose of the club is to promote interest in sports among U High students and their families, but the boys didn't stop at this. Besides arousing an interest in sports, they also sponsored a number of social events. The president of U Club was Russ Mills, and the secretary-treasurer was Ken Baker. With Gary Olson, faculty advisor, and all of the members behind them, Russ and Kenny saw to it that all aims of the club were fulfilled. New members were initiated early in February, and on the same evening a dance, open to the whole school, was held. Under the direction of Mariorie Swanson, faculty advisor, and Barbara Nimmer presiding over meetings, Pep Club went on to another full year. The Club sponsored the annual Basketball Homecoming Dance, which this year was called the "Basket-Ball." U High cheerleaders were also sponsored by Pep Club. They were: Kallitsa Mavroulis, Jackie Jaenisch, Marilyn Johnson, and Barbara Johnson. "B" squad cheerleaders were: Mimi Hanson, Judy Anderson, and Alice Skovran. The main purpose of the club is to promote school spirit and good sportsmanship. Marlys Evans, "veep," Mimi Hanson, secretary, Ginger Mears, treasurer, and Sonia Thorshov, publicity manager, worked hard with Barbara Nimmer and Miss Swanson to fulfill these aims.

Thespians sponsored all the school plays during the year. "Huck Finn" took place late in tall quarter, 'fThe Adding Machine" during winter quarter, and "Three tor a Latt" and "The Miser" in spring quarter. Quill and Scroll is an honorary society for outstanding high school journalists. Each year membership is awarded to senior members ot the Breeze and Biz stafts. Candidates tor membership are chosen by the members of the two publications and their advisors, Miss Haagenstad and Mr. Erickson. A candidate for membership in Quill and Scroll must be outstanding in photography, writing, editing, or proof-reading. Artisitic work, such as creating layouts, is included also. A sample of the student's work is turned in to the national board of Quill and Scroll for judging. This work must be approved by the board before students can be elected to the society. Membership cards and pins were given to the "Quill and Scroll-ites" at the spring awards assembly. This year thirteen students were elected to the society.

FEDER TI The Federation of Languages is composed of the four officers of each of the four foreign language clubs, making a total membership of sixteen. The four language teachers, Emma Birkmaier, Russian, Robert Brett, Spanish, Arnol Mendel, German, and Lee Stark, French, advised the group. Early last fall the two officers of the Federation were elected, James Gerald as president, and Gerry Gamble as secretary. The formal initiation of new foreign language students into their respective clubs climaxed a day of informal initiation early in November. Each year the language clubs, with Federation co-ordinating the plans, put on the "Holiday Hop" and the "Mardi Gras," which are for all students. James Gerald chairmanned the "Hop," which was held on the 20th of December, and Chuck Christensen directed the plans for "Mardi Gras," held on "Gras Tuesday."

With the addition this year of many new members, especially from the seventh grade, Stamp Club numbered about twenty-five collectors. With this increase in membership, the club launched a completely new and interesting program. In the fall a new constitution was adopted and the election of oltlcers took place. Steve Howard, as president, presided at all meetings, with Dick Watson assisting him. Minutes of the club's activities were taken by Mayleane Trask. Mr. Ten Brink advised the club, and helped co-ordinate the plans. The formal initiation of new members into the group took place during winter quarter. The highlite ot the "philatelists' " program was the stamp exhibit held this spring. lt was the climax to the year's program. The Chess Club was formed by a group of battle hardened chess players in need of an opportunity to play chess without the eternal necessity of disposing of the infernal kibitzer. The idea has met with great success, and since the membership has grown large enough, it is now possible to forcibly eject kibitzers. The organization has not yet decided, however, its members that insist on singing opera music while playing chess. The Chess Club, under the leadership of James Gerald and Win Mott, is looking forward to many more years of chess games, and thanks its advisor Mr. Merton Johnson.

The attendance figures nearly doubled the ones set during the previous season, and scores continued to soar as marksman- ship improved. All year the sights of the bowling enthusiasts were set firmly on that all-important king pin. The more than sixty keglers invaded the Coffman Memorial Union alleys every Monday and Tuesday after school. Leading the club this year were: president, Roger Johnson, vice-president, Don Bryant, and secretary-treasurer, Linda Kienitz. Dividing the responsibility of supervising the Bowling Club's activi- ties were its two advisors, William Grassel and Stanley Kegler. 16 41i"'i"" E:'ft::X v::.-:J mme I HLICKLEBERRY FINN Never before has U. High tried to produce a Junior High play, and the results were both enjoyable and nerve-racking. Art Ballet, the director, received his morning and evening exercise by chasing all the little ruflfians through 209 and 210, especially Jimmy Whiting alias Huck Finn, who enjoyed play practice for the sole reason of sending Mr. Ballet into a tantrum. Mayne Smith's guitar could be heard with the male quartet of Dick Triemert, a southern slave, John Campbell, the great Dulce impostor, Torn Quaid, the romeo Tom Sawyer in blue, and John Darley as the great King. As this was the first production ot "Huckleberry," adapted by Dr. Whiting, everyone was interested in the results ot the production, which were really great. i. ll Above: Dick Triemert and Jimmy Whiting. l 17 li Top: The cast of Huck Finn.

Halls decorated with posters informed the students of the 1952 homecoming festivities. The Junior Class, led by Linda Kienitz, ar- ranged for the event. Pins, newspaper articles, and assemblies pub- licized the highlights of the grand affair. Floaters and posters bearing the names of the queen candidates were distributed around the school. At an all-school assembly, October 15, skits were given an- nouncing the respective candidates. October 21 each student cast his vote for his favorite candidate. Before the game, at Marshall Field, the crowning assembly was held. When Linda announced the coming of the royalty, they rode on the field in a red convertible amongst the cheers of the crowd. With the football team in a semi-ci? behind the candidates it gave the effect of a stage upon which tk Qreeln would be crowned. for :L f x 18 GMECGMI G 1 5 8 g I' Ken Baker, football captain, took the crown from Sherry Evans, 1951 queen, and placed it on the head ot Kallitsa Mavroulis, the 1952 U. High Homecoming queen. The robe was placed on the queen and she was presented with two bouquets of flowers. Mike Prichard, Steve Nieman, and John Levine, three members of the team, gave the attendants, Judy Christensen and Janna Broeck each a corsage. Escorted to their seats the royalty reigned in all their splendor over the game. That evening in the Junior Ballroom of Coffman Union the all- school dance was held. Gala decorations added to the success of the event. Bruce Dibvik's fine band played from nine to twelve o'clock. After the intermission Don Fogelberg presented the queen and her attendants lockets and bracelets to remember their reign at Home- coming.

"The Adding Machine," an expressionistic play in seven scenes, was the annual production of the advanced speech class. The play depicted the early l93O's. It was the story of Mr. Zero, an everyman, who was driven to murder by a web of circumstances. Only after death, does Mr. Zero realize his futile life. Gordon Whiting portrayed Mr. Zero, his wife was Judy Steinberg, and Kallitsa Mavroulis was Daisy. Art Ballet directed the play, assisted by Kay Klinkertues, Gail Humphrey, and Bill Tucker. THE ADDI G MACIHI E HARITY DRI E A new method ot collecting money tor charity was adopted at U. High this year. The Senate Social Committee led the 1953 all-school drive. Jay Goldberg co-ordinated the entire event, with other mem- bers of the committee directing each part of the week long drive. For tour days records were played in the cafeteria. After school on February 6, a Sock-Hop was held in the new gym. During the dance, an auction was held with the money collected going to top this year's goal. Highlighting the week-long drive, was a Student-Faculty basket- ball game. 2 WS.-9 l "-'l 7 CDU CDLIDAY P A huge red ball overhead and silver Christmas trees near the wall ot the main ballroom decorated the site of the annual Holiday Hop, Coffman Memorial Union. James Gerald led the Federation of Lan- guages, who were the sponsors of the gala affair. Everyone danced to the Christmas music ot Bruce Dybvig's band. A nearby table held cookies and punch that were enioyed by all. During the intermission members of each language club performed a tracli- tional dance. Steve Howard, the master of ceremonies, led Eng- lish Christmas carols, while the teachers at each language taught the group songs typical of Spain, Germany, Russia, and France. A festive spirit reigned as students, faculty, parents and friends left wishing each other a "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year." ss Asyfyif fm. ki, i'-ti 3 - 1 Q 22 ,I THREE LAFF This year the all-school play was a composite of three one act plays. First at the three acts, was Milne's "The Man in the Bowler Hat." This play was a take-ali on all murder mysteries from the beginning of time, .lohn and Mary, Bob Milavetz and Nancy Anderson, were hosts to all the activities which took place in their home, The entire cast for the farce comedy was from fifth hour speech. "The Happy Journey," by Thornton Wilder, is a picture ot an American family. Although it had a sad twist, it was a comedy also. Mike Mann was Arthur, Don Backstrom was Elmer, Judie Nighman, Carolyn, Sally Eastlund, Kate, Mareen Whitefield, Beulah, and John Osterberg was the stagemanager. A satire, "lt Men Played Cards as Women Do," by George Kauf- man, was put on by the first hour speech class.

SE I R CLASS PLAY Moliere's "The Miser," was chosen by Art Ballet, director, as this year's senior class play. Ken Nighman, the miser, was an old man who found himself in cris-cross love affairs. Cleante, played by Russ Mills cmd Janna Broek, who is Marriane, used all of Moliere's tricks to be alone. Don Backstrom, Valere, and Bindy Goldman, Elise, dis- covered being alone was impossible for them too. Cooking for the miser, was Jaques, played by Dick Walker. Adding interest between scenes were the lockies, Bob Tema and Tony Baer. Bringing more confusion into the scene was Frosine, Myra Golden. Other seniors in the cast were: John Osterberg as Ansilme, Jim Awada as Mr. Simon, Roger Johnson as La Fleche, Jay Goldberg as the Magistrate, Gail Humphrey as Brindacoine, Lou Ann Solosky as Le Merluche, and Carol Christmas as Mme. Claude. Val Pink and Bob Tema assisted Mr, Ballet in the production. 26 ..-r"""' -,ppt-nv ff' Ill! SYERTS f TE M CAPTAINS The football team elected Ken Baker at the end of the season. Coach Olson favored this method to electing a captain at the begin- ning of the season since it would give the opportunity of being game captain to more ot the boys. All of the seniors and some of the juniors were appointed field captain for at least one of the football games. Ken Baker was the only senior on the wrestling team and was elected their captain also. Dick Weisbrod piloted the swimming team through a good season-. Dick, a junior, won honors in the state meet as a sophomore when he took third in the lOO yard free style event. Dick Walker was elected basketball captain at the end of the season after being high scorer in his iunior year and senior year. Gary Olson guided the football, basketball, and track teams this year. 27 Team captains 1952 i953 Above Football ond wrestling captain Ken Baker left Basketball captain Dick Walker Below: Swimming captain Dick Weisbrod Front row, left to right: Larry Lanz, Jimmy Awada Warren Ellls Duck Walker Ken Baker Bob Tema Myron Hassett Jum Ellus Second row: Dave Mooney, Chuck Shom, Fred Tinker Frank Odland Duck Gurtek Terry Atherton Dove Couper Steve Nieman John Levune Duck Zalousky, Ed Maki, Tom Crotty.

The Little Gophers went into their T952 football season with a handicap of two seasons without a win. They opened their season September l2th against the strong Watertown team after four weeks of practice. The U High ofiense made only one first down, but their defense held well. The team played better against Shakopee the following week, but their mistakes cost them four touchdowns. Jim Awada made the first Gopher score of the year in the fourth quarter after he faked a pass and was forced to run. Against Chaska, U High showed real power on two long touchdown drives. John Levine and Ken Baker both scored. U High met Bloomington, a definite under- dog, but on the Gophers' first play, John Levine took the snap oh' the T and handed it to Jimmy Ellis, who went 45 yards for the score. Bloomington scored twice in the second quarter and once in the sec- ond half. Next week the boys failed to stop Norwood and scored only in the last quarter when Jim Awada intercepted a pass and ran it for a touchdown. The spirit was high for the Orono game. U High had drubbed Coach Pesonen's team in a l95l scrimmage and the rivalry ran high. Early in the second quarter, Jim Awada broke away on a reverse run and went 70 yards to the 12. He took a pitchout and skirted left end for the score. Frank Odland carried over on an option play in the third quarter and threw a long pass to Dick Walker for another score. Confidence was high for the Homecoming game with Waconia, on the Marshall High field, but both teams were nearly stalemated and the game was mostly a defensive contest. Dick Walker was the only Gopher to gain honors to the all-conference team. Ken Baker was elected captain at the end of the season.

After two weeks of practice the "A" squad was cut to twelve men. Coach Olson dressed only ten for each game, however. He also appointed a temporary team captain before each game so that more boys could get the experience of piloting the team. As the season ended, the Little Gophers elected Dick Walker as the honorary captain of the team. ln a pre-season scrimmage with Mound, the Little Gophers found themselves on the top side of 35-32 score. How- ever, in the first official tilt of the season the Gophers played Bloom- ington. Bloomington was heavily favored to pace the conference and the Gophers found themselves on the short end of that game despite a pace setting 28 points by Dick Walker. The next tilt found us against Eden Prairie, a game which we won 50-42. The following three games the Little Gophers lost by close margins. In the first return game of the year we played Watertown. It was also the first game in U. High's new gym. For the first time, the Little Gophers enjoyed a home court in which they can both practice and play their games. The stands were packed that night but at the end the crowd saw Watertown on the top side of a 49-30 score. The Gophers scored a second win over Eden Prairie and a win over Waconia in their last conference game of the year to end the season with three wins and eleven losses. This placed the Gophers sixth in the conference. This year the Little Gophers "B" squaders ended an impressive sea- son with a lO win and 4 loss record. Although last year's team was small and entirely sophomores, this year's squad had a big reserve with about twenty 8th, 9th, and lOth graders. Dave Melby, a student at the University, coached the Gophers in their first game, to a win over Bloomington. They won their second of the season over Eden Prairie. However, four consecutive defeats from Chaska, Orono, Shak- opee, and Watertown followed. From the next game, which was with Waconia, to the end of the season, the Little Gopher "B" squaders were undefeated. Playing an important part in beating every team in the league were four freshmen, Dick Gurtek, Terry Atherton, Bruce Nimmer, and Jeff Ganfield, and two sophomores, Jack Foker and Shelly Mills. At the beginning of the season the Gophers looked good, however, at the end of the season they were lOO'Z, better. 31 WRE TLI Wrestling Scores U HIGH 32 U HIGH 9 U HIGH I6 U HIGH I2 U HIGH 8 U HIGH 3I U HIGH 8 U HIGH 8 U HIGH I9 U HIGH 23 U HIGH 9 U HIGH 5 U HIGH 3 U HIGH 20 U HIGH 24 Edina Mound Anoka Robbinsdale Wayzata St. Paul Central Robbinsdale Mound St. Paul Central Edina Wayzata Anoka Hastings St. Cloud Minnetonka Front row, left to right: Wally Hunt, Jim Ellis, Teddy Meyers, Bob Bor- tholemew, Earl Ellis.

Last year the team took sixth in the state and in previous years the team has done well too. Many of the boys were out trying to make the squad, getting in shape and getting down to weight. There were boys to fill all the ten weights except heavyweight, with younger boys giving the veterans competition. The win-loss column ol the dual meets was not impressive, but region 5 is a rugged one and seldom tails to produce the state champion. Wally Hunt, Jim Ellis, and Ken Baker were consistent point getters, winning nearly all their matches. In the sub-regions, Ed Maki and Ken Baker were the only wrestlers to win their matches and took third and fourth places respectively in the regional matches. 32 Left: Happy U High tanksters, Fletcher Davis and John Wolf, throw Coach Anderson in the Cooke Hall pool.

Pacing the mermen to a 7 win 5 loss record were Dick Weisbrod, Joey Lund, and John Wolf in the races and Fletcher Davis and Eugene Carlson in the diving. Weisbrod, only a iunior, was elected captain at the beginning of the season. The team functioned very well throughout the year. The only schools that they didn't beat were Rochester, who won the state, and Wif nona, who placed high in the state. Most im- pressive of the wins were over Southwest, Mur- ray, St. Thomas, and Washburn. The Little Gopher mermen placed first and second con- stantly in IOO and 50 yard free style events and the IOO yard backstroke event, Of all the meets that the Gophers entered, none was as important as the state swimming meet. Finishing in sixth place for the Little Gophers was Dick Weisbrod in the 50 yard free style. John Wolf splashed his way to a sixth place in IOO yard backstroke event, also. Weisbrod again placed in the IOO yard free style and this time finished fourth with a time of 59.5 seconds, only five seconds off the state record, At the end of the meet the Little Gopher mermen found themselves in Ilth place in the state meet with a total of 5 points. Not to be forgotten is coach Robert An- derson, a new faculty member. Coach Anderson was a former Y.M.C.A. swimming instructor. When considering the prospects for next year one can be sure that the Little Gophers will be good.

They worked hard and participated in several meets: the State Invitational, the Carlton Relays, the Mound Relays and the District. The team had only two dual meets but they had the experience of whipping Bloomington, winning almost all the events except the Sprints, Russ Mills came in fourth in the half mile and Rolf Engle was fifth in the mile. Eighteen boys went out for tennis and all but five participated in some of the matches. The team had matches with schools in both the Lake conference and the Minnesota Valley conference and beat them. U High won five matches during their regular season and dropped only four. The District matches were held at Robbinsdale in May. U High did well by taking third place behind St. Louis Park and Edina. This spring the tennis team will have four returning lettermen and several other enthusiasts competing to make the squad.

Then each homeroom elected its own president along with a senator. These two people from each homeroom made up what they called their council. This type of program worked well and primarily gave a lair representation of all the students. Aside from the very business angle of school our ninth graders also were very active in extra-curricular activities. Winter quarter they organized a sleigh ride which was a really tremendous affair. The annual Mother's Tea was under supervision of Jean Steinberg. "lt Happens Every Spring" was the theme. Representing their homerooms in Senate were John Darley, Margaret Armstrong and John Campbell. Their alternates were Dick Baclcstrom, Jo Ann Mayeda and Adele Whitcher.
