BY FRANCES GRIFFIN AND JOHN DICE
URING our first year in U. High, Mr. Wells and Miss Sebald were our homeroom teachers. Our
class program for assembly was a play written by Eleanor Jones. The boy's homeroom gave a party,
followed by another given by the girls, who finished the year off in line style by starting a fire in
the basement of the Elementary School.
In the eighth grade our boys began to show a glimmering of originality by setting off skyrockets
and gunpowder in their locker rooms. Eleanor jones wrote another play, given by the girl's homeroom.
The high point of the year was the class picnic at Newport beach, everyone bringing the wrong food.
However, we filled in the gaps with hot dogs, bought from the pavilion. After a baseball game played
amid clouds of interested mosquitoes, and a feeble attempt at dancing, we left for home in the usual
post-picnic manner, tired but happy.
The boys came back to school to find a new homeroom teacher in Mr. Well's place. Miss Chipman
took over the arduous task of looking after them. The boys gave a comedy in assembly, distinguishing
themselves as potential Thespian material. Their escapade of the year, a war fought with shoes, took
place in the locker room, scene of many past scrimmages. This particular event was memorable for its
electric light breakage. We finished the year again with our annual Newport picnic.
As big tenth graders, we felt quite superior to the little junior High children. We celebrated our
right to attend school parties by giving the Sophomore Struggle. Our boys turned athletic and took part
in several sports, while the rest of us turned out to watch them. This year ended, luckily, without any
mock warfare or Fourth of July celebrations.
In our junior Year, Miss Sebald left us for a secretarial position in Detroit. Fortunately, Miss
McKinney was without a homeroom, so she became guardian to the girls. We held many important
positions in the various school clubs, and the boys served as regulars on school teams. A large part of
the class took part in the junior Play, The Torrhlzearerr, written by George Kelly and produced under
Mr. Ford's direction. The play, a decided success, was one of the high spots of our school career. We
helped the Seniors graduate by giving the Junior-Senior Prom and a reception following the graduation
Much to their disappointment, the boys found that Miss Chipman would not be with them during
their last year. However, they were glad to welcome Miss Bell, an exchange teacher from Spokane. Stan
Moore, the new president of the student council, left early in the fall for a school in Asheville, but his
ofiice was very ably filled by his successor, Bill Dobson. The Impomznre of Being Earnert, our Senior
play was highly successful. Our Alumni party brought back an unusually large number of U. High
graduates, who expressed much pleasure in the really beautiful transformation of the bare 'rec' room.
Matters of importance that can be settled only by seniors necessitated the holding of long and sometimes
exciting class meetings but at last everything was settled-the class motto, the colors, the song. We trust
that we spent our class memorial money wisely. The events of commencement week rushed by in quick
succession and on the morning of june 18, we clasped our diplomas and bowed ourselves out of the
undergraduate life of University High School.

BY BILL GRAM
Behind us thoughts of friendship made
And goals that we have won.
Behind us memories of things
That we have said and done.
Behind us all our teachers, who
Have helped us make our way.
These memories will linger, though
We leave your halls today.
Before us all the world to roam
And trials that we must face
But we're the sons fdaughtersj of U. H. S.
And we will Find our place-
We know that we can conquer all,
Can answer every call,
We're graduates of U. H. S.
The grandest school of all.
Goodbye, U. High,
Your memories will cling-
Goodbye, U. High-
Your song will sweeter ring.
For now our ways must part.
Goodbye, U. High-
You're ever in my heart.
I see the shadows of the future
Grey and cold-
I dare the fates-
My prophecy is much too bold.

' ITH memberships in both the band and orchestra more than doubled, the instrumental
music department, under the baton of Mr. Vroman, showed an encouraging increase
in activity during the past year. More than eighty students were enrolled, and of these over
sixty received technical instruction on a variety of instruments with the aid of eighteen stu-
dent School of Music teachers supervised by Professor Mattern. In addition, a junior band
and orchestra was organized to prepare the younger players of University High for future
membership in the senior groups.
The band played at all of the basketball games, at several assembly programs, at the out-
door Purple and Gold meet and the Belleville festival. They also gave a concert during the
year, and used the receipts for new uniforms. Music was furnished by the orchestra for several
plays, for the spring operetta, and for the graduation exercises. Much of the orchestra's suc-
cess may be attributed to the fine example set by the Senior Class members of the orchestra,
many of whom held the principal solo chairs and were Mr. Vroman's chief support early in
The Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs and the A Cappella Choir, now in its third year of exis-
tence, were as usual quite active during the past two semesters. A brilliant recital was given
before parents and friends of Miss Olson's students at an invitational musicale and tea in
May, and on Christmas Eve the Michigan League heard traditional carols sung by the A
Cappella Choir. Members from both the Choir and Glee Clubs also participated in the very
successful operetta "Once in a Blue Moon," the receipts from which, combined with those
from last years operetta, enabled the Choir to be outfitted at last with their long-hoped-for

BY DAG. Bowisa
ND so now June has come all the clubs are closing up with a bang after another success-
. ful year. The Thespians are weeping bitterly in their most professionally calculated
footlights manner over the glories that are past and gone, over the glories of the year '36-'37,
when under the direction of Mr. McGaw and the leadership of Stan Duffendack, with Ruth-
mary Smith as secretary, they went beautifully screwy in a slang play, "Sauce for the Gos-
lings", went grandiosely dramatic in "Dregs', later in the season, and entertained themselves
competently with privately rendered skits in the interim, in those interims, that is, when they
were not directing make-up and costuming of several other school productions. Altogether,
say the Thespians in carefully enunciated chorus, a grand year. Veddy, veddy grand.
And the French Club, piloted by Betty johnson, and Gallic and amenable as ever, agrees
with them, Though smaller than usual in attendance this year, the club made up for its lack
of numbers by increased interest in the programs presented. One of these, the "jour de Roi",
was particularly impressive, according to the Gauls.
The Student Council was headed this year by Bill Dobson. Frank Whitney was vice-presi-
dent, with Mary Anna Jamison as secretary, and Fitch Tillotson treasurer. The usual
amount of work was done during the year. Some innovations were instituted, and especial
attention was given to safety rulings and the betterment of the school's tardiness record.
Now, having decided that a politician's life is not a happy one, except at moments, the council
members are looking forward to vacation.
Last reports had the whole several dozen of those capable ofliceworkers, the Student
Guides, on the way to Wikels for some liniment. Those aching joints, you know. They found
the past year to be about as pleasant as could be expected, considering U. High's triple-
1 l 11
decked flights of long, long stairs and those absence slips and oflice notices which didn't get
any fewer. Virginia Drury was president, with Mary Helen Davis as vice-president and
Martha Scott and Ann Vedder as secretaries for the first and second semesters, respectively.
With its unofhcial high spot of the year its April Fool edition, the Broadcaster, dazzled
a little by band practice next door but efficient as ever, went to town this year under the
guidance of Mary Ellen Wheeler, with jim Bourquin as assistant editor and Stan Duffendack
as associate. At present the Broadcaster is probably reminiscing about how it was haunted
these past two semesters, as was U. High. The spook, it is alleged, was a close-mouthed chain-
rattler named X. Hmmmm ....
Somewhat weary-winged and a little bleary-eyed after reading nearly six hundred manu-
scripts submitted it for publication, Pegasus is celebrating its third birthday as an organiza-
tion separate from its ex-parent, the Broadcaster. Co-edited by Allison Curtis and Bill Gram,
the literary annual was produced this year in its usual attractive format and contained work
by representatives of all grades in U. High.
Two new clubs, the Lens and Shutter, composed of local camera enthusiasts and presided
over by Wendell Young, and the German Club, led by Bill Wood and formed to encourage
interest in things Teutonic, came into being during the year. A third one, the Latin Club,
after nearly giving up the ghost because of the illness of one faculty advisor and another's
absence upon sabbatical leave, resurrected itself in the second semester and became quite
active once again under the benign guiding influences of Mrs. Craig, Mr. Dunham, and
President Harriet Shoecraft.
There remains, of course, one outstanding organization, but we won't mention that here.
Anyway, you've probably shoved your nose--long, short, pert, hooked, Roman, Grecian,
Irish, or only ordinary-pretty far into it by now. If you haven't, then scram, podner, scram.
You got no right down here. You got to be initiated first. Get back there and look at them

T HE annual tournaments sponsored by the G. A. A. have turned out very successfully this
year. The hockey tournament, under the general management of Ann Schneidewind,
was unsuccessful in their several attempts with the University women, although they played
fine games. U. High was invited to play an Ann Arbor High team in the Great Lakes Hockey
Tournament from which an all-star team was chosen. Our team was host to the Ann Arbor
High School at a hockey playday. Virginia McCalla had charge of the basketball games.
During the season two different games were played with Lincoln Consolidated School, and
a basketball playday was arranged at Ypsilanti High School. The volleyball tournament was
under the direction of Ruth Gram, and Connie Lorch was manager of the baseball games.
Horseback riding, which was conducted by Barbara Greve, has been an outstanding fea-
ture in the sports program. Betty johnson formed a Modern Dance Club which practiced
once each week. Swimming, badminton, and tennis was under the direction of Rose Mary
Mann, Betty Farris, and Mary Hayden respectively.
During the winter the G. A. A. Board gave a sponge party to its members by which it
hoped to arouse more interest in G. A. A. activities.
The G. A. A. wishes to thank all members for their splendid cooperation during the year.

ITH only two veterans, Ted Bragg and Bill Dobson, and three substitutes, Bill Wood,
Frank Whitney, and Fitch Tillotson, returning from last year's squad, Basketball
Coach Fred East molded a smooth running combination which won eight games and lost
but five. The Cubs ended in a triple tie for third place in the Huron League having lost only
three league games. The substitutes on this year's team were Art Hopkins, Doug Gibb, jim
Wootlruif, john McMurray, Stan Duifendack-all of last year's second team, with jack Shar-
man and Dick Hewett, a sophomore.
The Cubs won the season opener against Farmington and dropped the second game to
the alumni. They took the Huron League opener from Chelsea, 13-12, and scored their
second League victory against Clinton, 25-17. They took their third straight League victory
from Tecumseh by a score of 15-14, but dropped their next game to the League Leaders,
Dundee, by a 20-16 score. The next three games were easily won from Lincoln by a 26-20
score, Belleville by a 20-9 score, and Milan by a 31-20 score. Playing without the services
of Bill Dobson, star center and high point man, the Cubs were defeated by Roosevelt 27-12
in their second League defeat.
In an exciting game the St. Thomas School took the Good Neighbors Trophy away from
the Cubs by defeating them 28-25, in an overtime period. The following week the Cubs re-
ceived their third League setback at the hands of Saline in a disheartening game by a score
Northville beat U. High in their first start in the District Tournament, only after the
Cubs had waged a spirited and well fought battle, by a score of 20-18, and eliminated the
Cubs from the tournament for the third time in three years.
The Cubs second team had a fair season, winning six and losing six games. Bob Lovell
was the high point man and leader of the Cublettes.

HE U. High swimming team climaxed a rather poor season by taking third place in the
State Meet. Although they lost all of their dual meets they made an enviable record for
such a small squad. The team was ably captained this year by Ted Guthe and was coached
by Michigan's star diver, Ben Grady.
The first and last meets were dropped to Ypsilanti Roosevelt, while the Cubs' next con-
queror was Ann Arbor High. The next two were dropped to Pontiac and jackson. The next
meet the Cubs had a good chance to win but were hampered by illness and lost to Trenton.
The other meets were lost to Ypsilanti Central, River Rouge, and Monroe.
In the State Meet the team of Comstock, Allen, Edmonson, and Guthe won the 200 yard
free style relay with a time of 1150.6 with Ypsi Central some five yards back. The team of
Edmonson, Allen and Guthe were second to Ypsilanti Roosevelt in the 150 yard medley
relay losing only by a split second. Comstock earned a third place in the individual 50 yard
free style race whole Hayward picked up a fourth in the diving. Moehlman, Blumenthal,
Wiselogle all showed up well in the preliminary events.
Bill Comstock led the team in scoring with Captain Ted Guthe close behind. Other scorers
for the Cubs this year were Allen, Edmonson, Blumenthal, Hayward, Moehlman, Easlick,
Wiselogle, and Trytten.
Bill Comstock was chosen by this year's squad to captain next year's team. The chances
for a better season should be very good since only three seniors, Guthe, Allen and Moehlman,
will be lost through graduation.

HE U. High's track squad turned in the most successful season on record by winning
. all of their dual meets, winning the Huron League Title for the first time on record,
taking a fourth in the regional tournament, and sending two men to the state meet.
The team was coached by Fred East, was captained by Tillotson and Sample, and in-
cluded Dobson, Gram, Sharman, Ticknor, Allen, Newcomb, Edmonson, Tillotson, Hewett,
Glas, Treadway, Trytton, L. Sharman, and Walcott.
The Cubs defeated Chelsea 63-14, Belleville 59-18, Roosevelt 50M to 385 in dual
meets with these schools. Without the services of Sample, star sprint man, the Cubs annexed
a fourth in the regional. In this tournament Dobson won the low hurdles and placed third
in the high jump while Tillotson took the mile run. As a result of these efforts these two men
went to the state meet.
In the state meet Dobson got a fifth place in the low hurdles and a sixth place in the
broad jump. In the same meet Tillotson took a fourth in the mile run.
The Cubs triumphantly closed the 1937 season with the Huron League victory. In this
meet the Cubs were 20 points above Roosevelt, their nearest rival, annexing a total of 48
points. Sample was the Cub star, having won three firsts and running on the winning relay
A FAIR record was turned in by the 1937 edition of the U.H.S. Tennis team as they won
three, lost three, and tied one dual match, won the regional tournament and sent a
doubles team to the semi-finals of the state tournament.
This year's squad was coached by Dr. Johnston and was captained by Art Hopkins while
the other members of the squad were Bourquin, Hayward, Bragg, McMurray, Bonisteel,
Comstock, Perkins, Slator, Dice, Moehlman, Keppel, Underdown, and O'Dell.
The Cubs dropped matches to Adrian, Detroit University School, and Plymouth, defeated
Roosevelt twice, Ann Arbor High once, and tied Adrian once.
The Cubs placed third in the Huron League behind Dundee and Roosevelt but made up
for this by winning the first and second doubles and the first and second singles to mon-
opolize the regional tournament. As a result McMurray and Bonisteel went to the state in
singles competition, and Hopkins, Bourquin, Bragg, and Hayward went to the state in
T HE 1937 golf team, coached by Mr. Wesley Darling and with Bill Wood as honorary
captain, had a very good season, it won seven out of ten dual matches, won the regional
meet and was again runner up in the state tournament. The team which ammassed this record
was composed of Osler No. 1, Wood No. 2, Allen No. 3, Whitney No. 4, Easlick No. 5,
and Karpinski No. 6.
The squad won two matches from St. Thomas, Plymouth, and Northville and took one
from Howell. Ann Arbor High defeated U. High twice, and Howell took the measure of the
The foursome of Osler, Wood, Allen, and Whitney broke the school's team low score
record of 345 by 9 strokes when they came in with a 336 at Plymouth. This same day Dave
Osler broke the individual record of 78, held previously by Bill Huntington, when he came
home with a 77.
The team won the regional tournament by a margin of 19 strokes while Osler took the
second low medal with a 92 and Wood took third low honors with his 93.
The Cubs were again second in the State tournament, losing to St. Augustine of Kala-
mazoo, by four strokes. Bill Wood and Dick Allen scored for fourth place individual honors
with scores of 85. The other scores were Osler 86, and Whitney 99.
