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
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.

Dummy! Layouts! Copy! Deadlines! These were familiar words in
the Biz room as the staff frantically worked to get the Bisbila on the
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!

Scoops! News! Feature! Sports! These are the things that make up
the Campus Breeze. 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 1952-53 school year proved to be a very busy one for U Club.
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.

organization has not yet decided, however,

During its second year at U High, Bowling Club noticed gains in
several directions. 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.
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

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.

"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.

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-
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."

SE I R CLASS
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
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.
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.

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. U High

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.

Interest in wrestling was active at U High and the wrestling teams
have been good. 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
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.

This swimming season proved to be one of
the most successful in the history of the team.
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
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

Without a baseball team, many of the U High boys went out for
track. 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
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.

Instead of the traditional othcers they elected only ci president. 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.
