brmg a variety of interests and abilities. In spite of these differences, however, U High functions as a unit. This is possible because the students contribute their special skills and knowledge to the school as a whole.
The face of education at U High is a program of learning that is well planned and executed by the administration and faculty. "The stress in education,” according to the faculty, "must be on responsibility, character, knowledge and work. Responsible citizenship, individual development, initiative and freely given cooperation are the main themes of the curriculum at U High. It is of the utmost importance that the school educate a responsible individual who will play his role wisely in a national and world society
With this theme in mind, the faculty strives to helo the student as an individual so that he may attain

4The Face of Responsibility . . .
- fub JtA year filled with many challenges and administrative responsibilities consumed most of Dr. Robert A. Anderson's time at U High. Not only was Dr. Anderson principal; he also succeeded Dr. Robert J. Keller as director of the school.
Dr. Anderson believes in close student-administrative relations. During the past year, he was concerned with such areas as staffing and developing new administrative methods.
When asked about his sentiments regarding the school. Dr. Anderson commented, "University high school has often been described as a place where learners abound. This is certainly true with the students. staff and student teachers involved in expanding their areas of knowledge and fields of interest.” He also added that "it is very satisfying to work in an environment where people arc highly motivated."
As the director and principal of U High reflected on this past year, he stated, "Though we enjoy this opportunity, we should not begin to think that everything is perfect. As a group we should always look for possible ways to make U High a better place in which to work and leam."
Dr. Anderson believes, that he has profited greatly from his association with U High.
DR. ROBERT A. ANDERSON was busy this year as director and principal of U High.
Administrators Face Challenges
U High's staff, through the years, has seen many changing faces. Students will remember this year for the addition of Mr. Arland Otte, the new assistant principal.
Mr. Otte was primarily concerned with the internal administration of University high school. He was concerned with student discipline which included general supervision, tardiness, uncxcused absences and the handling of pink slips. He helped to arrange the scheduling of students' programs and was also responsible for handling admission interviews.
In the area of student-faculty relations, Mr. Otte served on both the executive and faculty committees which covered student evaluations and curriculum changes. On the level of student relations, the assistant principal acted as the adviser of Senate, U High's student council.
In summing up his first views of U High, Mr.
Otte was impressed by the student's abilities, the high caliber of the staff and the efficient organization and general freedom of the school.
5BESIDES WORKING with students, Dr. Lorraine S. Hansen, director of counseling, found time to advise the ski club and edit The School Counselors.
MR. LOWELL HELLERVIK conducted interviews with students to discuss their future plans.
Counselors Aid in
SCHOLARSHIPS are available now, Greg. Get down to business and apply.
Career conferences, group discussions, interviews with new students, test interpretations and junior-senior interviews have kept both counselors busy this year.
Dr. Lorraine Hansen and Mr. Lowell Hdlcrvik, guidance counselors, met with all new students and their parents this year for the purpose of becoming better acquainted.
Both counselors directed the testing program during the first week of school in which most U High students participated. Dr. Hansen and Mr. Hcllervik analyzed and discussed the scores with the students.
Junior-senior interviews with the counselors helped answer many questions about choosing a college or vocation. Final decisions were made intelligently as a result of these interviews.
Though the year has been a busy one, the counselors have found time for additional activities. Mr. Hcllervik has studied for his degree this past year and Dr. Hansen edited The School Counselors, a national counseling publication as well as advised the newly formed ski club.
6Health, Office Staffs Solve Problems
STOMACH ACHES, minor sore-throats and head colds were some of the ailments that confronted the University high school Health department this past year.
The careful guidance of Dr. Emma Fronk and Nurse Marian McReavy stressed the importance of preventing illness and ailments before they started.
In regard to their efforts towards the students' health, they performed many duties. Their biggest task was examining the entering seventh grade as well as all other new students. They also were in charge of the medical check-ups given to students every three years.
As another part of their program both Miss McReavy and Dr. Fronk met periodically to exchange pertinent information, and discussed problems with the counselors in order to gain a better understanding of each student
According to Miss McReavy, these consultations also helped their department to know each student better emotionally, as well as physically.
Along with these discussions the Health department could also give students added medical attention, in the way of innovations, further testing and emergency treatment through the University Health department.
AMIDST THE EFFICIENT click-clack of the typewriters and the ceaseless ringing of the telephones, students may have become quite bewildered. However these were only a few of the typical activities heard in the general office this past year.
Under the supervision of Edith Nyquist, the office staff performed its many valuable functions in helping the administration.
The many duties performed by the office staff this year included keeping student records up to date, signing tardy slips, answering phones, and dittoing daily absence reports. Along with these duties the office staff also made out PTA communications, and handled the processing of student report cards.
The office staff obtained two new Verifax units to aid in their work this year. These machines were also used by teaching departments.

7Library, AVOC Meet U High’s Needs
A COLORFUL ARRAY of some 10,000 books and over 5,000 pamphlets were available to students this year in the U High library. Under the guidance of Miss Edith Kromer and her two assistants, Lois Carlson and Sandra Sandholm, students could find almost any educational or free reading material desired.
Miss Kromer commented that during this past year, she and her staff have added even more useful media. In the area of reference encyclopedias, the Cambridge History of English Literature and the Encyclopedia of Science and Technology were added.
Another increase in reading material was made in the area of periodicals. The library now subscribes to over 80 magazines ranging from the newly acquired Ebony and Fantasy and Science Fiction to the standard issues of Life and National Geogntphic.
STRAINS OF Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony could be heard as students walked by the AVOC department this past year. If a student had stopped and peeked into the room, he would have gazed in wonder at the complicated movie and film projectors, foreign tape recorders and other mysterious wires and devices. Yet this room was well under the control of Mr. John O’Leary, audio-visual instructor.
During the past year, Mr. O’Leary has been instructing fifteen senior high boys on the fundamentals of operating audio-visual equipment. In turn, each of these boys was required to make use of this instruction by helping the various departments use the equipment.
MISS EDITH KROMER cared for some 15,000 books and pamphlets in the U High library.
SHOWING FILMS and instructing AVOC students kept Mr. John O’Leary busy this year.
MISS SANDRA SANDHOLM was one of the new assistants in the library this year.
'To business that we love, wc rise betimes, and go to it with delight.”
The Business Education department which is headed by Mr. Robert Peters introduced an entirely new program to the students of U High. The new Diversified Occupations program is centered around an outside job during the school hours, while the student is permitted to attend courses for graduation. Paula Carey, senior, was the first U High student to participate in this program.
Another change in the department was the general business course offered. Its main objective was to prepare students in practical aspects of economics and business. Units studied covered such areas as money and banks in an efficient economy, money management and fundamentals of business. Five new typewriters and one electric typewriter were a part of the new equipment purchased by the department.
MR. ROBERT PETERS taught typing, shorthand, consumer's math, and basic business.
PAUSING FOR.A MOMENT were three of U Highs hard-working custodians. Mr. Emil Blomquist, Mr. Larry Dc Mar, and Mr. Albert Bcnrz.
The whirring of gigantic brushes on automatic floor washers and the clean, somewhat antiseptic odor of U High's corridors were part of the duties performed by the school's custodians during the year.
After the last bell of seventh hour classes and the exodus of the student body, the custodians day was still in progress.
Busily, with sweepers, brooms, and other efficient equipment, men dressed in gray uniforms removed the traces of forgotten lunch tid-bits such as banana peels, orange peels, and crumbled cookies.
They emptied wastebaskets, cleaned blackboards, straightened desks and chairs, checked radiators and closed windows.
Thus each day ended for the custodians in preparing U High for the next day.
Camera shy custodians who are not pictured were Mr. Curtis Leslin, second floor, Mr. Joseph Rivard, gym building, and Mr. Norman Skibbe. head caretaker.
9Language Arts: Instrument in Thinking
CUP IN HAND. Mr. RoJgcr Kemp contemplates 'Hester ’
YOU REALLY WANT a hall pass?" was often heard coming from Mr. William Martin.
SENIOR ENGLISH wu attain uu hi by Air. Thomas Bacig.
"Language is not only the vehicle of thought, it is a great and efficient instrument in thinking."
Sir Harold Davy This quotation can be applied to the Language Arts department and its part in the education of students. Learning to communicate orally and in writing, the students learn to appreciate and gain a better knowledge of all facets of language. This includes literature of the world, philosophy, verbal speaking, creative writing, journalistic techniques and theater arts.
In addition to the department’s educational curriculum, some of the instructors have been working on Project English. Under the direction of Dr. Stanley B. Kcgler and Mr. Rodger Kemp, acting department chairman, the project continued in its third year of developing and evaluating language materials for grades seven through twelve.
The Language Arts department also provided advisers for the Bard, Breeze, debate team and theater arts projects.
MISS NANCY CROSMAN surveyed her junior English class as they wrote an essay.
10MR. RICHARD LUCAS taught freshman and junior English courses.
MRS. JUDITH BOGARD instructed seventh grade English and a reading improvement course.
MR. GEORGE ROBB anticipated his next English class.
THE JOB of directing plays and teaching speech classes was done by Mrs. Carol Horswill.
DR. STANLEY KEGLER spent this year working on Project English.
IIDR. CLARENCE BOECK, head of the Science department contemplates the nature of physics.
"The most beautiful thing wc can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science."
These words of Einstein seem to show what the atmosphere of the Science department tries to encourage in its students. Perhaps this is one of the reasons for the unique background surrounding the instruction of the students in the scientific area.
This can take many forms depending upon the scientific area and the necessary equipment used by the instructor.
In the studying of biology the students used various specimens in the form of plants, snakes, frogs, earth worms, and pickled animals kept for observation.
Another branch in the department is that of chemistry. Various experiments with acids and metals were conducted to aid the students in applying knowledge of chemical properties, equations, and the reactions to analytical tests.
The department has also made use of many other visual aids, scientific evidences, and other techniques in regard to the junior high program which coordinates geology, astronomy, and meteorology in a two-year general science curriculum.
As well as the areas of general science, biology, and chemistry, there were also courses offered in the fields of physics, and advanced science, which covered more specific areas.

"YOU SEE. CHEMISTRY is almost as much fun as cooking," commented Dr. Eugene Gcnnaro.
"VELOCITY EQUALS SPEED times direction" was a formula often used by Mr. John Cook.
MR. DENNIS KOST, new to U High this year, taught chemistry and physics..
STRANGE OBJECTS were often found gracing the biology.room this past year.
13THIS YEAR, Mr. David Johnson was head of ihc Math department and taught algebra.
JUDY BROWN, a graduate of U High, experienced a very important part of our school: student teaching.
Precision and Logic Characterize
DR WILLIAM STOCHL taught one section of seventh grade mathematics.
"Pure mathematics do remedy and cure many defects in the wit and faculties of the individuals; for if the wit be dull, they sharpen it; if too wandering they fix it; if too inherent in the sense, they abstract it."
U High's program in mathematics was both informative and interesting this past year. It included new classes on both the junior and senior high level.
The newest program was begun with the seventh grade curriculum. It was designed to compile two years of junior high math and one year of algebra into a two-year study. This program was offered to only one of the seventh grade sections.
In the senior high mathematics curriculum, a revision was also made. As well as Geometry, Advanced Algebra, and Senior Math, a fourth subject was added, that of Elementary Analysis. This course was taught to seniors, who had shown a special interest or had met the specific requirements in the study of math.
Among the math department's other major duties was the sponsorship of activities including Math club, and the National Math contest.
14MR. THOMAS KIEREN looks delighted after a rousing response from his math class.

MR. LARRY HATFIELD, taught seventh grade math and geometry, in his second year at U High.
MR. JOHN WALTHER, new to U High this year, taught geometry and calculus.MR. ALLAN KYLE, acting department head, chatted with Congressman Donald Fraser before an assembly.
ONCE AGAIN Mr. Stuart Stockhaus wondered what his senior social studies class was up to.
MR. ROBERT BEERY prepares for responses from his seventh grade social studies classes.
"Intellectually as well as politically the direction of all true progress is toward greater freedom, and along the endless succession of ideas."
A thorough study of geography, history, political science and cultural patterns were the main areas covered by the Social Studies department in their teaching this past year.
Under the direction of Allan Kyle, acting department head, a new curriculum was offered to the junior high students by Project Social Studies.
Instead of the previous American history course which was taught to seventh graders, a primary study in sociology was introduced. A change was also made in the eighth grade curriculum from geography to political science.
In the senior high curriculum, juniors were required to take an extensive course in American History, which involved a great deal of class discussion and debate. Seniors enjoyed their comfortable chairs as they listened to lectures and reports in studying current social problems. livery U High student was required to spend one year before graduation studying world history or world problems.
Another addition to this year's Social Studi.es curriculum was the presidential election of 1964. U High accurately predicted the outcome of the national election in the school's mock election held two days before the regular one.
Through these courses, the department endeavored to instill in the students a basic knowledge of our government and social problems and also to understand the cultural and governmental practices of other lands.
MR. JOHN McCULLEN taught eighth grade social studies this year.
Social Studies Revises Curriculum
DR. GENEVIEVE BERKHOFER joined the social studies department at the beginning of winter quarter.
MR. MICHAEL ROCKLER spent his second year at U High teaching World History.
17MR. RAMFDO SAUCEDO was often seen making arrangements for the annual trip to Mexico.
"The immense value of becoming acquainted with a foreign language is that we arc thereby led into a new world of tradition and thought and feeling."
Application of this statement can definitely be related to the Modern Language department at U High.
Under the direction of Dr. Emma Birkmaier, the students at U High are receiving thorough backgrounds in the mastery of a foreign tongue.
Through the use of language laboratories, tapes, records, movies and slides the students were aided in their studies. A six-year program in German, Russian, and Spanish with the addition of French and Chinese have given the students a variety of languages enabling classes to gain a more extensive knowledge of other countries and cultures.
The importance of interesting high school people in modern languages has long been realized at U High. This resulted in the introduction of Russian as a part of the curriculum sixteen years ago. Since that time many other schools in the United States have realized the importance of a modern language. The innovation of Chinese is another step in recognizing the importance of a foreign tongue since it is spoken by over one-fourth of the people in the world.
With modern communications and travel improving, our world desperately demands a better exchange of ideas and opinions between peoples.
TAKING TIME OUT from teaching, was Miss Shirley Krogmeier.
MRS. SUSAN PASSOLT showed a look of approval as one of her French students answered a question.for Understanding
MR. DALE LANGE, French instructor, and Dr. Emma Birkmaier, department head, could often be found discussing future plans for the instruction of Modern Languages.
PLANNING HER LESSON for the next day, Mrs. Elfi Terp, German instructor, paused while typing.
FLUENT RUSSIAN could be heard coming from the classroom of Mr. Donald Ryberg.
19DR. ROBERT RANDLEMAN resumed hi many responsibilities as Unified Arts department head.
'The highest problem of any art is to cause by appearance the illusion of a higher reality."
Under the supervision of Dr. Robert Randleman, the Unified Arts program, composed of art, music, industrial arts and home economics, strove to achieve certain goals. Primary emphasis was placed upon individual development as well as on stimukting creativity in students.
Making colbges, block prints and bronze sculptures were only a few of the creative efforts produced in the Art department. Seventh and eighth graders spent one-fourth of the year in art, while older students took advanced art for the entire year.
The Music department offered courses only on the junior high level teaching the aspects of music appreciation as well as directing choral groups and band ensembles.
Within the Industrial Arts department, the whir of circubr saws and drills could be heard as senior high students worked on their projects. At the junior high level, the seventh and eighth grade boys spent half the year learning basic skills.
A similar program for seventh and eighth grade
?;irls was instituted in home economics. Aromas of reshly baked cookies and cakes wafted out of the kitchens as students worked on meal planning and preparation, one of many units in homemaking.
Art, Home Ec, Music, Industrial
INDUSTRIAL ARTS was taught to the seventh and eighth grades by Mr. David Pixel.
NINTH GRADERS learned drafting and other skills from Mr. Frank Pratzner.

Arts Stimulate Creativity in Students
MR. ROBERT SURPLUS spent this year directing the senior high baod.
MR. GERALD LIZOTTE conducted the junior high band and chorus.Physical Education Stresses Vigor
"The exercise of all the muscles of the body in their due proportion is one great secret of health and comfort as well as of strength and the full development of manly and womanly vigor."
"Do I have to take a shower?" and "I finally broke 100!” were comments often heard by U High's physical education teachers.
Under the supervision of the four coaches: Donald Dennison, Robert MacLeod, Kenneth Metz and Harold Whitehead, the boys' physical education program strived for fitness and prowess in many sports activities. A similar curriculum was organized by Judith Hclgcson, girls' gym instructor.
Due to U High's affiliation with the University, classes were permitted to use many of their sports facilities. Students in grades 7, 8, 9, and 10 were often seen headed for the University tennis courts, Coffman bowling alley or the Norris and Cooke Hall swimming pools.
MR. ROBERT MACLEOD headed the physical education department.
SEVENTH AND EIGHTH graders were taught by Mr. Kenneth Metz.
"NO, THIS IS NOT the girl's locker room," replied Mr. Harold Whitehead.
MRS. JUDITH HELGESON pauses as she plans the upcoming girls' physical education program.
WATCHING WRESTLING techniques was one of Mr. Donald Dennison's special jobs.
22The Face of Competition . . .
Athletic sRAILROAD TRACKS and grain elevators lend a unique atmosphere to Delta field upon approach.
Spirit, Work Make for Good
Except for a few people, Delta field was deserted.
People were still slowly wandering in when the Little Gophers trotted out onto the field. A small cheer went up, but it was nothing compared to what was to come later in the game. In fact, the stands would not be full until the two teams were facing each other in preparation for the kickoff.
When the ball was doing lazy somersaults in the air, an involuntary scream found its way out of the teeming mass of football fans. From that moment on it was clear that win or lose, they would not stop yelling until the final whistle, and the end of the game.
Maybe we won, maybe we lost, but everyone knows it was hard fought.
And just how docs the team feel about the game?
Each player knows that for better or worse, he owes it to the others to get out there and do the best job he can. That is what makes a team great; that is what makes the U High Gophers great. The team is only as good as its spirit. To a team with good spirit,, victories are rewards; defeats are challenges. After each game every team must face itself. Coach Robert MacLeod taught ours to do so with pride.
In football as well as any other sport it doesn’t really matter whom you play nor how well you do; just work hard and enjoy yourself and you’ve won a victory. BACKGROUND in ballet often proved useful.

Cheerleaders Promote Pep, Enthusiasm
This year's cheerleaders provided enthusiasm for athletic events, boosted school spirit and were successful in encouraging student attendance at both home and away games. They were also responsible for obtaining buses to away games, planning pepfests and designing posters to publicize all of the sports events. Tliis year's A-squad included four seniors and two juniors.
Also promoting school spirit with enthusiasm was the B-squad which was chosen in the fall. This year's squad sold pop during half time at all basketball games, made their own uniforms and cheered at the B-squad basketball games and wrestling meets.
U High had a C-squad again this year. These cheerleading hopefuls cheered at all C-squad events and helped the A and B squaders when ever they could.
In addition to these cheerleading squads a pep committee found its way into the chcerleading program this year. It consisted of all cheerleading semi-finalists who helped to promote school enthusiasm and also publicize athletic events.
The cheerleaders were under the direction of Mrs. Judith Helgcson. They were considered for the first time as part of the Athletic department.

27Basketballers Finish Season Strong
WOLFS JUMPER scores for U High.
After a slow start in the Minnesota Valley Conference race, the Little Gophers finally worked out a good enough starting combination to pull U High into fifth place.
Beginning with the first Watertown game, Guards Jim Kohan and Carl Kanun, Forwards Steve McCardle and Len White, and Center John Wolf either succeeded in winning their games or lost by only a few points.
The most exciting games played this season were against St. Anthony and Golden Valley. U High crushed second-place Golden Valley in their own gym on February 12 by ending the game with a 58-57 lead. St. Anthony, conference champs, played a tough game against us when they went into a three-minute overtime after tying the Little Gophers 61-61 at the end of the last quarter.
In addition to the regular conference games, there were two non-conference battles 'against Foley and Osseo. The Foley game gave the underclassmen an opportunity to gain some valuable experience for next year.
John Wolf and Steve McCardle, two of the tricaptains led the team in scoring with a number of fine games. Completing the tri-captainship was Jim Kohan. Assisting the seniors were Guards John Dimunation, Dave Wilson and Jeff Walsh, Center Pat O'Brien and Forward Tim McCardle.

Marching music blared forth from room 375 during most noon hours as the U High Pom Pon girls continually practiced both new and old step routines.
The girls added sparkle to almost every home game by performing during half time, but again this year the tape recorder or the record player caused the girls unbearable anguish when it failed to correspond properly either in speed or tone to the dance that was being performed.
Jeanne Chiang and Jackie Jones, the two remaining Pom Pon girls from last year choreographed all the dances. Kitty Struchen assisted in composing Georgia Tech. Opinions varied on the appropriate kind of background music; some favored marching music, while others leaned toward rock n roll. It was decided that the old traditional march music would be upheld since the majority of students expected the Pom Pon girls to resemble majorettes rather than shindig dancers.
Previously only six girls performed, but this year due to the added interest and enthusiasm nine girls were chosen.
Gold sweaters, maroon skirts, pom pons, letters and white shirts helped the girls convey a cheery, lively atmosphere. The sweaters were obtained from graduated Pom Poncr's or purchased. Each person was responsible for making or buying their own skirts.

Individualists in Athletics
MAN. this is the only way to fly.
A small number of individualists carried the U High flag in non-sponsored sports through the '64-'65 season. The challenge of swimming was met by Buck Fleming, sophomore, Steve Johnson, junior; and Hubie Sentyrz, Senior. These were the top members of last year's squad who came close to breaking the existing varsity records. They practiced with Hamline University and swam for the YMCA under the guidance of Coach Hal Whitehead.
Mark Howell, junior gymnast, placed U High fourth in the Northwest meet. He constantly placed first in tumbling, free exercise and received top spots on trampoline and all around.
These individualists gave U High a complete variety of sports, which were not offered because of difficulty in the athletic program.
NO TIME for smiles

Act ivilie SGRA’ers Develop Strength, Skill
GRA tried something new this year by meeting during the noon'hour every Tuesday and Thursday. Under the direction of Mrs. Judith Hclgeson, girl's physical education instructor, the senior high girls spent many hours engaged in various sports. Not only did they compete against each other, but on occasion they played against Northrop.
GRA spent all of fall quarter playing volleyball, and during winter quarter basketball and badminton were played. The girls completed the year with spring softball.
The girl's swimming team was also a part of GRA this year. It was advised by Lee Gardner, a former U High student. Libby Howell was captain of the team, and Mary Wallace was her assistant.
GRA OFFICERS—Marie Winckler, secretary; Libby Howell, president; Holly Hedlund, vice-president.
YOU GIRLS are all wet!
THIS YEAR'S GRA was really on the ball!AVOC
It was 14 degrees below zero when a brave audio visual student ventured out a U High door to determine the treacherous fate that awaited him. Then in a mad dash to Wesbrook hall, he faithfully returned an armful of used movies, only to return with an equally bulky amount to be shown in the coming days. Acts such as this were common among the 15 boys and filled their daily hour.
Under the guidance of Mr. John O’Leary, the students ran many errands for various departments. At the same time, they also performed their regular duties such as delivering movies, phonographs, and television sets.
The most significant development of the year was a grant given the University by the 3M corporation. U High received three overhead projectors, and one copying machine from its share of the grant. Mr. O'Leary estimated that by the end of the year, an overhead projector could be in every classroom and they would eventually replace blackboards.

Clubs Offer Diversity in Purpose
SKI CLUB OFFICERS—Sara McGee, secretary; Al Rubenstein, vice-president; Chuck Steinberg, president; Tom Smerling, treasurer.
Helping beginning skiers as well as advanced was the aim of this year's newly formed Ski club.
Under the direction of Chuck Steinberg, president, and Dr. Lorraine Hansen, adviser, the club's membership soared to 107 during fall quarter alone. Membership was open to all students grades seven through twelve.
Skiing films were shown to help beginners as well as to create interest in the club. Ski trips were also taken to various ski resorts throughout the season.
Transportation for the trip was arranged by Senior Mike Rose. Buses and cars transported the members under the supervision of accompanying staff members.
In addition to Mike, other students who aided in the planning of trips for the club were Juniors Jim Mooney, trip coordinator; Susan Stein, publicity; and Sophomore Barb Cavin, program.
36Library Lab, Pages Aid Departments
SCHOLARSHIP PAGES were appointed to assist the University high school office staff once again this year. Pages were also assigned to aid the various departments.
Special duties in the day of an office page included signing student pass and tardy slips, running errands for the administration to all areas of the campus, operating the ditto machine and delivering call slips.
LIBRARY LAB students, under the direction of Miss Edith Kromcr, librarian, aided in organizational procedures. They helped to arrange some 15,000 books and pamphlets in the U High library. They also assisted confused students in finding and checking out books. They organized the card catalog, reminded students of overdue books and explained the new system for returning books.
Both the pages and library lab students had a tremendous job to fulfill. The operation of the various departments at U High and the library was made considerably easier by the performance of these students.

FRENCH CLUB OFFICERS — Eugenie Thornes, secretary-treasurer; Kathy Smith, vice-president; Mary Bee Antholz, president; Madame Passolt, adviser.
Junior high sock hops, open houses and movies were only a few of the activities sponsored by this year’s German club.
In an effort to become more active, the club became a money-making organization. Like all other clubs of this nature, the traditional initiation and banquet also found their way into the club's activities.
Many German club members participated in a trip to Europe taken during the summer of 1964. Under the supervision of Wolfgang Kraft, a former U High instructor, the students traveled throughout Europe and studied in Austria. The trip was taken along with members of the French club and a group of students from Washburn high school.
Frau Elfi Tcrp advised the German club.
A broader understanding of French culture was the goal of this year's French club.
Attending French plays, going to theaters featuring French movies and eating at French restaurants made the attainment of this goal possible.
The annual French club initiation was held during the winter quarter this year with pledges facing the tests of endurance which are traditional at all language club initiation ceremonies. Black berets, long-sleeved blouses, bright neck scarves and dark stockings were ail a part of the corridor scene that day. When it was over, the new members were allowed to relax at a banquet of French food.
Madame Susan Passolt advised the French club.

GERMAN CLUB OFFICERS — Tom Smerling, treasurer; Liza Nagle, vice-president; Dana McCannel, president; Kathy Schnocs. secretary.
"Spanish club initiation was a grueling test of calisthenics," commented one tired Spanish club initiate. This year's initiation took place late in the fall. On top of the freezing weather, the new members were put to a real test when they were required to make a purchase in a local store speaking only in Spanish. Clerks were bewildered.
After it was over, however, the initiates were rewarded for their bravery by being treated to a banquet at La Casa Coronado, a Spanish restaurant
Spanish club members participated in putting on open houses and sock hops throughout the year. They also looked forward to a bi-annual trip to Mexico over spring vacation.
Adviser for the Spanish club was Scnor Ramcdo Saucedo.
RUSSIAN CLUB OFFICERS — Eaxl Cohen, vice-president; Terry Rittenbouse. treasurer; Grashdaneen Ryberg, adviser; Liz Rose, secretary; Denny Ewing, president
SPANISH CLUB OFFICERS — John Morken, vice-president; Chuck Steinberg, president; Margaret O'Brien, secretary-treasurer.
Russian club has staged a variety of activities this year under the direction of the officers.
Besides the usual sock hops and open houses, the Russian club planned two events which were worthy traditions of the club: 1) their torturous initiation where initiates were subjected to all kinds of impossible feats, and 2) their annual trip to Excelsior amusement park. Both events are anticipated by club members each year because they have one thing in common . . . fun.
Initiation ceremonies were held during the fall quarter which gave the new members a chance to participate in the club's activities for most of the year.
Among some of the easier tortures inflicted upon this year’s initiates were bowing to elder members of the group and reciting the Russian club motto at the first basketball pep fest. The initiation banquet was held in the home economics room where good Russian food was enjoyed by all.

U High Journalism
BREEZE STAFF shows varied emotions as a deadline draws near.
"Where’s my dummy?"
"Who wrote that 30-word story that’s supposed to be 300 words?"
Hysterical cries echoed from the journalism office every time a deadline approached this past year.
Under the direction of Editor Ivar Broggcr and Mrs. Waleta Hamcrston, adviser, the Campus Breeze staff met daily during the first hour. It was their job to compile, write and edit the nine newspapers which U High students received this year.
For the 27th consecutive year, the school newspaper was recognized as one of the best in its class. The National Scholastic Press Association awarded the Breeze with an All-American rating.
The Journalism I class worked with the senior editors by serving as reporters and proofreaders. The class learned basic journalistic skills such as news, sports, feature and editorial writing, makeup and typography, editing and cartooning.
Journalism students who were best qualified were selected for editorial positions during the spring quarter. The new staff was given the opportunity to exhibit their talents by producing the cub issue in May.

U High's Bisbila was produced in a new and more effective way this year than in previous years.
The production was no longer considered a noon-hour activity, but rather a class.
Under the direction of Mrs. Waleta Hamerston, fifteen seniors and five juniors learned about many aspects of publication work. Units on layout, photography, copy writing and typography were included in the class program. Many of the students also took the first-hour photography course which aided the class.
Eleven senior editors headed individual sections while the juniors and seniors in the Bisbila I class assisted them in writing copy, printing photos, and drawing layouts in time for production deadlines.
In this way, juniors became familiar with publication procedures so that they would be able to assume editorial responsibilities for next year's Bisbila.
A new feature has been added to this year’s book. An eight-page supplement, distributed in the fall, has made it possible to provide complete coverage of the year’s activities.
By acquiring a class hour, the Bisbila editors and staff have had more time to produce the book and through such efforts have attempted to make improvements.

41Bard Staff Discusses Literature
THE BARD STAFF attempted to increase student participation this year through a more varied program and appeal. Editor-in-chief Susan Allen and her staff sponsored presentations and discussions with one professional writer each quarter.
Roland Flint, poet, talked with interested students fall quarter, while Gerald Vizcnor, a haiku poet who employs a Japanese style, gave a presentation to the students during winter quarter. In the spring, Allen Downs, a film maker, discussed "Writing for Film" with U High students.
The Bard, U Highs literary magazine, remained much the same this year with literary contributions from every grade comprising the book. Mr. William Martin advised the staff.
BOWLERS spent after school and before game times on Friday nights together as a club. The suggestion for this type of club came from Dr. Robert A. Anderson. Thirty eager students met weekly competition at the Coffman union bowling lanes. Seniors Marilyn Stein and Pete Thorsen were elected officers of the club. According to Marilyn, "This year's club was fun for everyone who participated and will probably continue as an activity next year.”

42Journalists, Thespians Honored
QUILL AND SCROLL, a national honorary society for outstanding high school journalists, represents most schools in the country. Membership in the society may be secured only through a local chapter which holds a charter from the national office of Quill and Scroll.
Membership was awarded to fifteen U High students who were seniors, editors on one of the publication staffs, and who had maintained a high general scholastic standing.
Each student was awarded a gold pin signifying membership and a one-year subscription to Qtiill and Scroll magazine. Awards were made at a special assembly during the spring quarter.
U HIGH'S THESPIAN TROUPE was a part of a national organization which honored senior high students who were extremely active in the theatre. In order to become a Thespian, each had to accumulate ten points in theatre work. Four to seven points could be obtained for crew work and up to ten points could be earned for playing major roles.
Interested students formally applied for membership in the Thespian troupe. Upon acceptance they were given a card of congratulations and a certificate at the annual banquet held in the spring.

The struggling Debate team managed to do well in the first tournament this year in spite of many obstacles. The noon hour meetings were often called off because of other noon hour activities. Out-of-town tournaments were often rendered impossible by finance and transportation problems.
Advised by Mr. George Robb, the two teams, A-team and B-team consisted of John Ney and Grant Schampcl, A-tcam affirmative, Mar)' Bee Antholz and Margaret Smith, A-team negative. Mark Wattcriberg and Terry Rittcnhouse were the B-team affirmative, and Karl Aufderhcide and F.arl Cohen, the B-team negative. Besides the team members, there were 27 other students on the squad.
Three debate tournaments were attended by U High fall quarter. At the end of fall quarter, December 16-17, there was a six-round marathon tournament on the University campus which U High attended.

Noon Activities Thrive on Competition
Oratory flowed freely as U Highs most gifted speakers participated in Declamation this year. The purpose of Declamation was tp teach students to incorporate emotion, persuasion, clarity, and cohesivcncss into their speeches. Under the direction of Mrs. Carol Horswill, speech instructor, these goals were accomplished.
The speeches given by students could be classified in six categories with varied temperaments: serious and humorous interpretations of poetry and prose, original oratory, extemporaneous reading and story telling which most students found exceptionally easy.
The speeches were presented to a panel of judges under formal conditions in district, regional, and state tournaments.
Students in Declamation are covered by the same rules which apply to athletes Passing grades arc the most important requirement for participation.

44Senate Initiates New Procedures
Senate this year was one of the most progressive and productive in years. Under the leadership of its four officers, and Mr. Arland Ottc, adviser, eight committee heads and 15 senators argued issues every Thursday for an hour. Meetings were open to all students this year, but outside participation was infrequent.
On any topic, whether it be hall sitting, ninth grade, Homecoming, senate elections, section meetings, or Charity Week, there was always long and lively discussion, with representation from all grades. All the problems raised by the previous topics were solved throughout the year. There were some that will never be solved, such as Shcvlin, but they added humor to many of the meetings.
Senate had many other activities this year, such as sponsoring its first open house in order to make money to lend to organizations and classes. Many conventions and luncheons were attended by officers and senators.
Lastly, no student will forget the arrival of the penguins at U High. Through Senate, it was possible for the penguins to make their appearance at pep fests and games, where they were received warmly by the entire school.

45U High Musicians Play in Harmony
Strains of music floating through the air could be heard every noon hour this year between Peik Hall and the Music Education building. The source of these notes were the junior and senior high bands.
Mr. Robert Surplus directed the senior high band which was composed of all interested senior high students. Throughout the years, these members have played at sports functions and other events besides giving a few concerts.
In an effort to make the junior high band more-experienced, Mr. Gerald Lizotte, director, planned as many performances as possible. Their major production was during spring quarter when the band played for all parents and other interested people.

Homecoming . . . and the Band
The week of October 9th was indeed an exciting one for all at U High. Annual Homecoming festivities were climaxed by the traditional dance held at Coffman Memorial Union ballroom.
Queen Dana McCannel and her royal court reigned over the dance on Saturday, October 17. They were pleasantly entertained by the Highlanders, a band employed for the dance.
Chairmen of the event were Juniors Susan Stein, Rcnie Schapiro, and Marna Peik. Other committee chairmen were Liz Burkhardt, Cheryl Chergosky, Earl Cohen, Onnolee Karwoski, Sumner Jones, Gail Me-Cannel, Liz Rose and Mitchell Smith.
During the week, the queen candidates culminated their campaigns at an all-school assembly held in the gym. Their skits ranged from a parody on "My Fair Lady" to a Tarzan swinging from a rope. Each candidate was allowed ten minutes for her total presentation. Surprisingly, they all stayed within their time limits.
47University High School’s 1964 Homecoming Queen, Dana McCannel
Horns, whistles, confetti and general disorder was the scene of the 1964 Homecoming coronation. The moment was tense when co-captains Denny Ewing and John Wolf crowned Dana McCannel our new queen. Her attendants were Carol Albrecht, Betsy Graves and Margaret O'Brien. Excitement, pep and enthusiasm filled the frosty air in spite of the Little Gophers' 13 to 14 loss to the Chaska Hawks.
U High's queen candidates were involved in various activities throughout the years Dana served as
German club president and photo editor of the Bisbila. Carol was an A-squad cheerleader as well as a member of the yearbook staff. Betsy took an active part in Senate by participating in student-faculty relations. She was also a member of Dayton's teen board. Margaret was an A-squad chccHcader and held the position of exchange editor for the Breeze.

49Democrats Sweep the School Vote,
SO WHAT if he swam the back stroke at U High?
WELL ... ah ... let’s look at it this way, gang.
Thanks to the Democratic and Republican clubs, U High students were able to hear speeches given by Donald Fraser and John W. Johnson who were candidates for fifth district congressman.
Mr. Arland Ottc, Republican club adviser, thought the noon hour assemblies were successful and that it was an excellent opportunity for all the students. He was also pleased with the election assembly. Speeches were given by Mary Bee Antholz, Peggy Beck, John Ney, Margaret Smith and Mark Wattcnberg who spoke on behalf of the democratic candidates. David Fcigal, Rolf Larson, Jack Norby and Terry Rittenhouse spoke for the Republicans. Mr. Allan Kyle and Mr. Stuart Stockhaus were the general supervisee.
In spite of Democratic predominance and foregone conclusions, the students were polite to both sides and did not display their feelings except in their voting. Mock election results reflected the national vote. It was noted that this was one of the few times U High has ever gone Democratic.
Mr. Thomas Bacig and Mr. George Robb, Democratic advisers, agreed that although their club did very little, everything turned out well. Mr. Robb said he thought our campaign was much more rational and controlled than the national one. He concluded, "Democrats who vote together, gloat together.”
STUDENTS RECEIVED tally sheets in social studies classes to keep track of election returns at home.VOTER REGISTRATION was a new requirement this year. After the mock election assembly, sophomore voters exercised their rights.

51Senior High Play Done in Earnest
Mrs. Carol Horswill successfully directed her first play at U High. The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, is a play which contains its humor in the cleverness of the dialogue. The play concerned two London gentlemen ably portrayed by John Ncy as Algy and Mac Pearce as Jack. Algy and Jack busied themselves with the art of "bunburying." The term "bunburying" refers to an imaginary person who serves as an excuse for them to get away from their homes and families and to escape the realities of life.
Jack s country house serves as a home for his ward, Cecily and her guardian Miss Prism who were portrayed by Renie Schapiro and Maureen Longballa respectively. Jack’s country home became a sight of confusion when Lady Bracknell and her daughter Gwendoline unexpectedly intruded to find Algy and Jack in the art of "bunburying." Both Peggy Beck and Margaret O'Brien did a believable job of portraying these characters.
The others included in the cast were Robie Wayne and Mike Phipps, who played the roles of the servants. C.hausable, the county’s minister, portrayed by Mike Mattaway, performed the essential christenings which brought the family together and the play to a happy ending.
“HAVE ANY KIND you want, but don't cat the cucumber sandwiches."

Speech II Play: Under Milk Wood
Under Milk Wood, by Dylan Thomas, was this year's Speech II class play.
The play which takes place one day in a squall Welsh town, was. completely planned and executed by the class members, under the direction of Mrs. Carol Horswill, class instructor.
Seventeen students, this year all seniors, handled ail of the technical work and played all fifty-three characters.
Most of the planning and work was done during class hours thus serving as the winter quarter's class project.
The class was composed of Susan Allen, Mary Bee Antholz. Jim Berman, Ivar Brogger, Allie Downs. Phyllis Hammond, Charlotte Holtzcrmann, Andrea Hudak, Dana McCannel, Liza Nagle, John Ney, Fraun-cee Noah, Margaret O'Brien, Bob Olsgard, Mac Pearce, Mike Phipps, Lloyd Wchnes.

"I LOVE Miss Price.'Girls Bring Their Catches to Sadie
HOW WOULD YOU like to find this in your potato sack?
WELL, I think we should can i«!
Popular rock and roll tunes blared forth from the U High gym when the Yetti-men took up their instruments to entertain all those at the Sadie Hawkins dance.
This gala event, held on November 14, 1964, marked the one night made legal for every Dogpatch female to lasso her male and have a rollicking evening.
As fathers fumed over missing ties and shirts and mothers bemoaned vanishing musty, burlap, flour sacks, the students stomped to the music of the Yetti-men, a local band. Soft drinks were available for those who became exhausted by doing strenuous dances such as the jerk, the frug, the dog, the baldy stomp and the swim.
Marryin' Sam (Steve McCardlc) and his assistant (Betsy Graves) hitched up a line of eager couples that stretched halfway across the gym. Thoughtfully, no Divorcin' Dan was present.
Dangling tin cans, orange streamers and other preparations for the dance were made by Peggy Beck, Denny Ewing, Barb Janes, Steve McCardle and Liza Nagle.
Though the girls were a little forward, the boys didn't seem to mind a bit. They may even be secretly looking forward to next year’s dance.

Students Support Charity Week
"PERSIST" was the Charity Week motto. Peter Dole pins a button on Richard Rapson.
Persistent students drained every classmate and teacher of their last pennies during U Highs annual Charity Week.
Highlighting this year’s variety of activities were two jxrnguins, Harvey and Oglethorpe. They allured both campus and city newspapers as well as attracting contributions .from admiring strangers.
A one-week parking spot in the ramp next to the shop was the most valuable item sold at the school auction. Chuck Steinberg, senior, purchased it for $10.
Sophomores were victorious for the fourth consecutive year in the annual pail competition. One week of campus privileges and the right to report any seniors seen in Dinkytown was won for contributing the highest total from any class, $13901.
''Persist'' buttons were sold at $.25 each at the suggestion of Jim Berman, chairman of Charity Week. This aided in advertising the drive as well as in adding money to the $1,000 goal.
The Charity Ball, a semi-formal dance concluded the week’s fund raising activities. A total of $726.99 was collected and divided between the United Fund and the Marty Fife Scholarship Fund. The latter fund enables one student to attend U High tuition free.

Mark AFS Night
1965 AFS activities began the moment the dismissal bell rang as studenrs headed to the carnival, soc hop or flea market.
The carnival was an attraction for both senior high and elementary students. Various booths, games and raffles were operated and Junior chairmen Sumner Jones and Renic Schapiro added a new feature to this year's carnival: students could have their portraits rendered in charcoal by Mrs. J. D. Holtzermann. In addition to the carnival a sock hop in the gym was held for the junior high under the direction of Lynn Thorie, junior.
“Godfrey” the flea along with Juniors Marcia Finley and Mama Peik planned this year’s flea market. Everything from boxing gloves to unmatched earrings were sold as well as innumerable paperbacks.
After the carnival events, parents and students ate an authentic Italian dinner in Shevlin hall which was catered by Vescio’s Italian restaurant. Senior Betsy Graves planned the dinner.
The AFS program this year included Spanish dances, French and German songs and a Russian play put on by language club members and the elementary school. Highlighting the evening was the introduction of AFS students Chiara Rachetti of Italy and Norbert Tosch of Germany.

Her committee chairmen were Mary Bee An-thola, entertainment; Sue Frcnzel, clean up; Betsy Graves, refreshments; Barb Janes, invitations; Donjia Johnson, reception; Kathy Olson, publicky and Sue Robinson, decorations.
The Revenge of Tom T rue heart, an original melodrama, was staged by the sophomores at their tea, "Premiere." Those responsible were Bonnie Grapp, general chairman; Marie Wincklcr, entertainment; Liz Wolf, decorations and Linda Wolff, invitations.
A formal tea was planned by the junior girls. Papier mache string lanterns, filled with crepe paper flowers stood on each table and hung from the ceiling. Five girls arrayed in old-style gowns poured tea.
Under General Chairman Marna Peik, were Marcia Finley, reception; Libby Howell, invitations; Maureen Longballa, publicity; Julie Lysnc, clean up; and Sue Stein, entertainment.A LOYAL SUBJECT pays homage to King Norbett.
SOME of the luckier ones got to dance.

U HIGH'S 1965 Snow King and his snowflakes.
More students turned out for the sophomore-sponsored Holiday Hop than any other opcnhousc this year. The coronation of the Snow King helped attract nearly 200 people.
Five senior king candidates were previously chosen by their class. They were Ivar Brogger, Denny Ewing. Jim Kohan, Steve McCardle and Norbert Tosch. Voters elected Norbert at the dance.
A lively group called the Jaguars provided the music. The drummer was only-eight, but he and his three 12-year-old guitar-playing friends were given special permission to remain after the junior high had to leave.
Dangling mistletoe, crepe paper streamers and tiny dormant lights created a festive holiday atmosphere Assorted cookies and holiday punch were provided by Tom Smcrling, sophomore class president.
Joe Bloedoorn, David Feigal and Jim Stein took care of the general arrangements. Loren Gilbertson, Harroll Harris, Becky Garnaas, Roger Kufus and Robin Lee were responsible for setting up the dance. Art Tsuchiya was the clean-up chairman. Tickets were managed by Holly Hedlund and Ann I.umry. Others who helped were Jeri Cagen, Sara McGee, Larry Scher-mer and Marie Winckler.
