H Ill 1 [ I] 4 In fulfilling the hopes of last year ' s book that this annual continue publication on down through the years, we of the staff have attempted to accomplish one thing above all others, and if we succeed in attaining this end we shall think ourselves justified in calling this annual a task well done. As a year book is often the only connecting link a man nas to his high school days, we have tried to make this book one of memories representative of the school. As the worth of an institution cannot be judged just by its outstanding athletes, or just by its geniuses, or just by its faculty, we have here attempted to portray the well-rounded character of Flintridge by a combination of all her numerous qualities. In short, for this, the third edition of our annual, and the first under the new name of IHE FLINTRIDGE LOG, our aim is that this book be one of life and memories, not just pages of paper and ink. i ' l y- r -r 7 »A ?4.f 7- ! ! n- " ' - . i ' l m " « ir - -.

LYNDON Among the most treasured thirigs we take with us as we go along through life are the little touches of personality received from friends we meet; and no one can meet our coach without coming away a finer person because of it. Overflowing with energy, re- sourcefulness, and words of cheer, it is impossible not to help but be proud of having a coach such as he. For this spirit and his untiring but well rewarded efforts to better our school and us, we here try to evidence our deep gratitude and appreciation by the dedication of this book. I CONTENTS ADMINISTRATORS LEADERS CLASSES ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS MAJOR SPORTS MINOR SPORTS INTER-CLASS RIVALRY THE CALENDAR D MR. DOANE M. LOWERY President Mr. Doane M. Lowery, President of Flintridge, is also one o+ the founders. It is due to his unflagging interest and faith in the school that it has become the present institution. hlis busy day includes the leadership of several study halls, conducting the morning assembly, keeping an interested eye on school athletic events, and attending to a multiplicity of executive duties. In spite of this full schedule, Mr. Lowery always has a ready smile and instantaneous access to a somewhat dog-eared edition of " Joe Miller ' s Jokes " . When he is not busy with school affairs, Mr. Lowery finds time to keep abreast of the day ' s events, and be very active in civic affairs. Pl[l I] MR. MALCOLM G. DICKINSON Headmaster Mr. Malcolm G. Dickinson was a member of the original school faculty, and he has been Headmaster since 1934. When his time is not taken up with the duties of his office, Mr. Dickinson presides over the science branches of the school curriculum. Impressing the boys with his imposing list of degrees, (B. A. degree from Pomona College, M. A. from Claremont College, gradu- ate work at the University of Southern California, and research with the Hancock Pacific Expeditions) Mr. Dickinson follows through with a thorough and brain-curdling course. Mr. Dickinson is extremely interested in sports, (one of which some students claim is demerit-giving) and while in school he did a great deal of track work. Now, however, his only exercise comes during the annual drubbing taken by the faculty in baseball. " J n I u U . Mr. Joseph Rose, teacher of Spanish and French, has, among other attributes, a wicked baseball arm, an unpredictable golf slice, a B.A. from Rice Institute, and teaching credentials from San Diego State College, hie also has a wife, which fact sets him apart from an institution of confirmed celibates. Mr. Robert Jardine, instructor of manual training and drawing, is noted for his love of buttermilk, his prowess at horse-shoes, and his trips to Madera. HHis marriage philosophy should prove interesting to anyone who inquires. Due to his popularity, a multitude of nick-names have been given this San Jose graduate. Mr. Leonard Lyndon, expert on how to obtain a good physique, maintains his popular classes in the gym. In the course of his stay at Flintridge, this Occidental- trained hHercules has been able to lift the Flintridge morale and swimmers to the top of those in Southern California. MR. JOSEPH W. ROSE MR. ROBERT C. JARDINE MR. LEONARD V. LYNDON " n n f1 u U . Mr. Lawrence Myers, history instructor, is the venerable sage of Flintridge. In keeping with his character, his classes are always the epitome of unruffled calm, and he is known for the strict moral tone of his lectures. A graduate of U.C.L.A., Mr. Myers needs all his intellect to guide his junior proteges. Mr. Carol Vaniman, graduate of La Verne and Claremont colleges, and in- structor in mathematics, likes nothing better than to rope a stray cow during vacation. One time when he returned from one of these forays, he bore signs of having been attacked by a maddened bull. hHis pupils all said it was the first time the bull had ever thrown a teacher. Mr. Thomas Lynch, who heads the Latin and English departments, often speaks to his students about ' a pari ' , and ' a fortiori ' , but there is one ' pari ' argument which has him stumped. Through an education gained at Gonzaga, U.S.C, and many other colleges, Mr. Lynch has received enough wisdom to guide the seniors. MR. LAWRENCE T. MYERS MR. CAROL C. VANIMAN MR. THOMAS A. LYNCH MISS LOUISE GUSWEILER MR. HAROLD E. McKEE Miss Louise Gusweilcr, sachem in the junior department, is well known tor her leanings toward horticulture and a scrupulously clean room. Miss Gusweiler has re- ceived degrees from U.S.C. and San Diego State College, and still she has a hard time keeping ahead of her precocious fledglings. Mr. hiarold E. McKee, handles the school ' s finances, and it is an eternal mystery to the boys why a financial wizard can ' t make enough money off percentage to get himself a car. A member of the slim, but staunch Canadian colony, Mr. McKee prides himself on having a golf game which is superior to that of the other two. Besides his golf, Mr. McKee ' s interests center in a ranch in Tujunga where he raises a fine crop of blisters.

As a student body leader every one agrees that he exceeded their highest expecta- tions. The Student Council is primarily a means of liberal discussion between faculty and student body, hlowever, it also acts as the eyes and the ears of the campus in order to supply the wants of the students in extra-curricular activities. Along with this runs the responsibility of keeping school spirit at a high ebb. Soon after school started, the Council decided to rejuvenate the school paper. It bargained around for printing bids, and, finding the rates too high, realized that rejuvenation must come from the quality of the articles printed instead of from the appearance of the paper. With the assistance of Mr. Lynch they appointed a staff from the stand-outs of the different English classes. The paper began to improve tremendously, one issue even containing twelve pages. A recent addition to the paper has been the acquisition of a printing press. A colossal monthly issue was developed to be sent to all alumni, who may thus keep in contact with campus activities. COMMISSIONER OF ACADEMICS JIM GAMBLE — The philosopher and non-conformist of the group. Known for his indefatigable sarcasm and cynical wit. Jim is the only Junior on the Coun- cil. He is valuable to the group for being a neutralizer of the ultra-conservative elements. Instigated by the pleadings of all the faculty a new complete merit system was established. The work was done, for the most part, by Jim Gamble. Formerly the method of demerit giving varied with the humor of the teacher. There was much grumbling on the part of the students, who felt that there was no basis for appealing the demerits. Now the lists are posted in all the rooms; there can be no argument, since the teacher merely refers the offense to the list and deals out the agreed upon demerits. COMMISSIONER OF ATHLETICS THORNDYKE MACKAY— The best athlete in the school and hero-worshipped by all the students. Modest as to his endeavors, Thorny ' s ability and popularity have kept him on the Student Council for three years. 17 COMMISSIONER OF FINANCE TED MUNROE — The efficiency expert and com- petent treasurer. His accomplishments are wide- spread and his interests varied. Ted has something to do with almost every activity on the campus. Undoubtedly the most important work by the Council has been the establishing of a new interclass competition. The idea arose from a desire to stage a Junior-Senior football game. While the matter was being discussed in a Council meeting, several members suggested a regular interclass competition to cover the academic, social and athletic fields. Numerous ideas were taken up and discarded; none seemed to be fair to all classes. From the hodge-podge of suggestions, a final plan was drawn up. It has been the work of the Council to supervise, regulate, and put over the different divisions. A great deal of spirit has been aroused, due to the close athletic contests and fiercely contested academic averages. Everyone in the school has had the chance to perform for his class in one way or another. A chance for athletic recognition has been created for those who did not quite make the varsity teams. They can now have just as much fun playing on their class teams. The size of the class assumes no relative importance in academic fields since averages are used. Therefore you can see that the aims of the Student Council have been two-fold; first to create enthusiastic school spirit, and secondly to institute worthwhile activities that will prove beneficial to the school. The attainment of the final year, toward which our efforts here have been constantly directed, brings forward the realization that our leaving entails both a sense of jubilance and also a good measure of regret. It is jubilant because of the vision these years of preparation have given us to anticipate more fully what lies ahead; it is a regret because of the reluctance with which we must give up many pleasant associations and experiences participated in as Freshmen, as Sophomores, as Juniors, and finally as Seniors, that are to be no more. There comes to the mind of every Senior as these days come to a close, a retrospection of the events that have lead us to our goal — an endeavor to assay our course, to synthesize the most worth while things that may stand out as beacon lights throughout our future endeavors; and they may be found in the ideals that characterize Flintridge: honesty, discipline, loyalty, kinship with student and teacher, and through- out everything a good sense of humor as a balancer of our ills and proficiencies. This is the school tradition and the inescapable sense that each member is a part of it. At no time is the privilege more deeply felt than on becoming a Senior. At no time is the desire more sincerely sought to have that tradition carried on by each class as it begins, on through until the last rites are said, than at the point of fare- well — to this the die is cast — farewell. • — Douglas Goodan 20 DOUGLAS GOODAN Senior Class President Member of the Swimmin3 Team Senior Manager of Basketball Douglas Goodan, the capacious caliph of the Senior Class, has only one love ... his ranch. Minor fancies are his horns and a variety of automobiles. Doug has been at Flintridge the better part of two years, and in this time those in the know report that his list of speeches is negligible. Probably the verbose boys of the Senior class elected him to the highest position they have to offer out of pure admiration for his sobriety. A good student, Doug is Stanford bound. He is not quite sure what he will major in yet. His ambition, and indeed the ambition of all of us, is to be a Phi Beta Kappa. Doug is seventeen, slightly younger than many ..m K of his class-mates. Possibly the only basketball man- ager to get through the season without complaining about something or other, Doug has set an enviable record for future managers to follow. MAC LAWRENCE Business Manager of Annual Secretary of the Senior Class Pi Lambda Kappa (honorary chemistry award) C. S. F. member Baseball letterman Hoi Polloi reporter Macllvane Lawrence is liable to dispatch with alacrity the first unfortunate who fails to call him just plain Mac. In his many years at Flintridge Mac has only recently shown an interest in matters concerning the outside world. Now suddenly he shows great interest in conditions in the Mid-west, even going to such an extent as to carry on postal communication with people in Chicago. Whenever Jimmy Lunceford, Count Basie, or a host of other favorite bands of his come to town, Mac hurries to see them. - e is an inveterate swingster; however, unlike so many of his brethren, he never makes his love of jive obtrusive. On the contrary, anyone looking at Mac would see only a studious young man, interested in going to Pomona. A prominent Senior because of his intellect and not his size, Mac is a C. S. F. member and also a star of Flintridge ' s successful chemistry team. Possibly the future will reveal him as a fine chemist, but now all one hears is: " I gotta letter. " 22 THORNDYKE MACKAY Commissioner of Athletics Vice-President of the Senior Class Captain of the Basketball Team Baseball Captain Member of the Swimming Team Chosen Best All-around Athlete Thorndyke Mackay, woman-hater extraordinaire, athlete par excellance. and one of the best-liked fellows in the school, seems to have a profound dislike for doing things by halves or quarters. When he gets a haircut, there is only a smattering of fuzz left; when he lets his beard go, he looks like the worst hobo in seven jungles; and when it comes to bedeviling the smilingly seraphic teachers, there ' s none his peer. When a freshman, Thorndyke was a continual thorn in the side of his Seniors; (no pun intended) now that he is a Senior, he is the triple distilled essence of leniency and geniality. As his college. Thorny has chosen California, where his father is a professor (coincidence, no doubt), hlow- ever, he is still undecided as to his major. Coach Lyndon strongly advises it be basketball or baseball. 23 DAN FROST Student Body President Annual Staff member Hoi Polloi staff C. S. F. President Tennis Team Captain Hunting for Daniel Frost? Vou can usually find him hiding behind a giant soda in the Pig ' n Whistle, for Mr. Frost is always busy with the dizzy round of social affairs which consume the time of similar bon vivants and boulivardiers. Everyone agrees that it was with his frivolous outlook on life in mind that Dan chose Yale as his college. However, this is only one side to the duplex character of the Great Khan of Flintridge. He is also declared to be, by hitherto reliable sources, a good student. He has been a member of the C. S. F. every semester since entering the school. This scholastic ability should help him to become a lawyer, as this is his ambition. However, if you can show him a place and an occupation where he can make a maximum of money with a minimum of effort, he will be exceedingly grateful. 24 TED MUNROE Editor-in-Chief of Annual Commissioner of Finance of Student Body C. S. F. Secretary Swimming Team Captain Letterman in Baseball Pi Lambda Kappa (honorary chemistry award) Of all the Seniors, Ted Munroe is the easiest to write. The simple explanation is that he has been by far the busiest. (Also the writer has to get a good word in for his editor!) An inveterate canvas sailor, Ted could launch his ship as well as a tirade against power yachtsmen, at the drop of a hat. Recently his father bought a power launch, and this tack had to be abandoned. Ted is a crack swimmer, and one of the high points of his career took place when he conquered the National Junior champion in his own pool, thus bearding the lion in his den. Down at Balboa, the old salts sit around on the quay and talk of the day Ted will go North to Stan- ford to major in engineering. They also speak of his numerous scholastic achievements while at Flintridge, and they speak the truth when they say that the future is indeed pleasant for Ted Munroe. 25 THOMAS MELIN Editor-in-Chief of the Hoi Polloi C. S. F. member Czar of the Tumblers Thomas Melin, practically three years at Flintridge, has gained a reputation for being a gourmet. At least this pertains to desserts, for which he shows a profound partiality. Tom also shows a partiality toward resting his pedal extremities while he parades up and down on his hands. Besides carrying the torch for a fine physique, Tom is quite a fashion plate, often dazzling his fellow pupils with his multi-colored wardrobe. Stanford is Tom ' s collegiate destination where he plans to major in electrical engineering. He has been the recipient of the C. S. F. novitiate pin which all hope will prove to be an indication of his college scholarship. If the engineering business turns dull, though, Tom can turn to his true love, the sea. Every year he goes to Balboa where he can sail and think up more queer say- ings to spring on his friends the next semester. ■•- gi 26 DONALD BAXTER Circulation Manager of the Hoi Polloi Basketball Letterman for Three Years Baseball Squad A throbbing motor, a nifty ' crate ' , and a hearty " Peel ' em Baxter! " , and another school day begins for Donald Baxter. He tears off his crash helmet with reckless abandon, and jauntily enters the classroom. Immediately, however, his thoughts swing around to studies. His goal is U.S.C. and he must study if he hopes to make it. At lunch we see him again. This time he is approaching a group of boys engaged in feverish argument about the relative merits of their respective chariots. All speech stops when the master appears, and the youths gravely fall to their knees to salaam. He accepts their obeisance with due gravity and immediately swings into his own version of a current ' Confucius say . . . ' His admiration knows no bounds for such outspoken men as Shelley, and a satisfied grin of profound agree- ment wrinkles his face as he reads their theories. Ever an individualist, Don once tried to set a new fad in basketball pants; however, his idea was greeted with derision when he tried it out. The boys deemed them functional, but totally lacking in warmth. 27 DONALD BULLOCK Member of the Hoi Polloi Staff Junior Baseball Manager President of the Flintridge Radio Club Senior Manager Swimming Team The first day Don Bullock came to Flintridge, the instructor who asked him his birthplace had to caution him about impertinance when he received his answer. " China, " said the redoubtable Bullock, and he was right. (hHowever, Don does not use beads in his capacity as manager of the school store.) Lissner looks forward to the day when Don will go to the University of Cali- fornia, and then he will be free from Don ' s inquisition. Just to substantiate Lissner ' s claim about Don ' s bullying, we submit the fact that he was called for roughing up a Junior in the annual Junior-Senior basketball game. Just a big bully, that ' s all! Don shines in engineering, and his dearest ambi- tion is to be a radio engineer. While studying for this end at Cal., Don hopes to become coxswain of the varsity crew. 28 WALTER WALTERS On the Basketball Squad Member of the Swimming Team Baseball Team Member When Walter Walters leaves the school, he will leave a real gap in the student body. hHowever, in spite of his cherubic appearance, Walter is a juggernaut on the gridiron. In the first of his six years at Flintridge he attained a reputation for sling-shot marksmanship which any of the present-day members of the grade-school might well envy. In spite of this early attainment, Wally is now quite peace-loving. Indeed, his present ambition is to be a lawyer, and, in order to further that ambition, he plans to enter Pomona in the Fall. The milk-man, clattering through the streets in the rosy dawn, or the usual revelers, returning from a night of merryment, have often seen the strange sight of Wally, complacently roaring through the quiet streets of suburban Glendale, his faithful blue Chevy headed for school loaded to the ' gunals ' with just himself. But stay, he is muttering! The reason? His secret ambition is to be a lexicographer. C? : -» y= " y r W We, of the Class of Forty, hereby publish and declare in the true spirit ot generosity the following gifts: To our cherished Alma Mater we leave our loyalty, devotion, and gratitude for the gifts of mind and soul that she has so carefully developed in us. Dan Frost leaves — with the fond hope that his gifts will be well used — to Dick Munroe the most remarkable ability he has of talking the teacher out of the ' gift ' grades that his pull with the faculty was about to get him; and to Jim Gamble he wills his faultless dancing steps. Upon his graduation, Don Baxter regrets exceedingly that he must give up his title of " The Speed King of Flintridge " ; but he has at different times been heard saying he wished Frankie had a chance, so it only seems natural that he donate his title to one Mr. Pope. Walter Walters once said, " I get my money ' s worth, for I haven ' t been absent from school even one day in six years. " In all fairness to the Juniors, he wishes to make Bob Hampton the recipient of this generous Scotch gift. To prove that he isn ' t always Scotch, he wishes to give Brady Johnson his unexcelled quality of penmanship. ' Tis rumored that Don Bullock once talked for forty days and forty nights without pause for even so long as a second; and, as we think to will such a gift to any one person preposterous, we have advised him to halve it up and let Charley Markham and Earl Weaver take whichever half they want, and thus it is bequeathed. Upon quite a little adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying, it was dis- covered that Thorndyke Mackay broke over twenty five windows and received about five hundred demerits in the short span of around one thousand days. He did not have the heart to will all this trouble directly to any one person, so he said the Senior Class could dispose of it as they wished. After much deliberation Mr. Benjamin Earl was made the due recipient in order to falsify his boast that no Senior could bother him. Tom Melin has agreed to will to Reid Allen his enviable ability to grow side- burns plus his conversational quips. And don ' t sell these gifts short, for each and every Junior begged and begged Tom to give him these gifts. Mac Lawrence one day had a change of mind and this is what happened. He willed to Ogden Kellogg his ability to play badminton, ice skate, and even to " jitter- bug " . My, my, what a versatile lad this Kellogg boy is going to be! To quote Doug Goodan; " The thing I hate most is to see a fine student and good athlete who allows himself to become enchanted by feminine pulchritude. This will soon lead to his ruination. " Therefore Doug wills to John Eliei his peculiar trait of never letting a feminine character into his life. Since Ted Munroe said that he just couldn ' t see anything in himself that any one else might want, he told the Seniors that he preferred to let the Juniors will themselves any quality they saw worth taking. Upon further persuasion, however, he consented to give, in addition to the above, his persistency to Jim Gamble. 30 U I L u To every Senior class falls the burden of being analyzed, prophesized, and pub- licized. Along with this there is the never-ending task of setting an example for the rest of the school. Therefore, huddle your shoulders, fellow Seniors, and prepare yourselves for the worst. You know that being a Senior is no easy job. You know that being analyzed is a most embarassing experience. But it must come, so hide your blushing faces, my little violets. The year 1965 is on its last legs. Already the new year is creeping around; time is still waiting for no one. Our scene takes place on a cold misty evening in the house of the Reverend Donald Bullock, Bishop of the West, hie has issued invitations to all his former classmates at Flintridge to partake of dinner and merrymaking around the Bishop ' s keg of good old wine. The dinner has been a success and now the guests are gathered around the fire. All nine are present. Situated in a semi-circle around the fireplace we see: Donald Baxter, president of the Baxter Motor Works. His is the biggest surprise of the group assembled. From a mechanic in a small garage to president of the fastest growing company in the country, is an achievement of no mean endeavor. It is the result of integrity and drive that possessed him after leaving high school. Once he got into a business that he really liked, Mr. Baxter was unstoppable. Ted Munroe, chief of the engineering force working on the new Roosevelt (pardon me, Taft) dam. He is known for his feat of swimming the Mississippi from its source to the Gulf of Mexico. I might add that he did it underwater. Aside from this achievement, Ted is also known for being the father of the famous Munroe quintuplets. His face is known from Hackensack to Peiping. Walter Walters, district attorney of Los Angeles is renowned for being the scourge of the underworld, and a reformer of rare courage who tracks killers of the deep right into their lair. He is now serving his third term, and is said to be con- templating running for the Republican nomination for U. S. Senator. Macllvaine Lawrence, author of " Hello Chicago " , " Personality in the Nucleus " , etc. He is the rage of the fair sex, having just returned from New York where he was mobbed by autograph seekers. He is said to be offered a one hundred and fifty thousand dollar a year job with Paramount pictures to write a screen version of " Ham- let " in Harlem dialect. Donald Bullock, the host. He joined the clergy after leaving Singapore Uni- versity. A very pious man, is still said to like a nip of the bottle for festive occasions only, of course. Thomas Melin, manager of " Melin Makes Mightier Muscles " . He owns a huge camp in the Sierras for decrepit men. And does he give them a going over! He, himself is known for his beautiful body; was three times winner of the Atlantic City beauty show. Thorndyke Mackay, otherwise known as " Muller Mullins " . He is champion wrestler of the world, just back from a command performance before the King and Queen of England. Also he is a rising star in movie " heavy " roles. Wears a crew hair-cut and pink flowered shirts with purple coats. Called the best dressed man in Hollywood. Douglas Goodan, Texico baron. One of the ten highest salaried men in the United States. Known for his discipline and sterness in his factory. Also for his power on Wall Street. Although he is celled a tyrant and an effigy to be erased by the laboring classes, he is, in reality, a quite sincere fellow; the same old Doug of Flint- ridge days. And lastly, Daniel Frost, big corporation lawyer. He has gained a distinguished gray at the temples. He has to hurry off soon to prepare a brief for a big case in court tomorrow. He has been selected, by a jury of debutantes, as the most eligible bachelor. The gossip columns call him a glamor-boy. ■ik ' 1. , .

President Benjamin Earl Vice President Charles Markham Secretary-Treasurer Ogden Kellogg No doubt you have heard the biblical fable of the Prodigal Son. If you have, you will understand me v hen I say that this is a Junior to the letter. They are a gay devil-may-care crew, taking life as they find it and making the most of it, for they subscribe to the Epicurean doctrine — Live, laugh, and make merry for tomorrow you will be a Senior. They realize the full grave import of these words, and so they hurry to pleasure and revelry, leaving the cares of the world to others less experienced. Incidentally in the midst of their gaming, they take time to consistently whip the Seniors to a creamy froth in every event attempted this year (so far). 32 lis Standing, left to right: Robert Lissner, William Robbins, and Lewis Lyon. Seated: Chuck Schimpff and Chuck Detoy. Bill Moller was absent when this pictur e was taken. President Charles Detoy Vice President Lewis Lyon The Sophomores are more or less " betwixt-and-betweeners. " From them might be drawn qualities apparent in almost any class of Miss Gusweiller ' s group. Also quite in evidence are the " flaming youth " tendencies of the Juniors. At times even the rugged respectability of the Seniors may be seen. Among this group of chameleons are race drivers, politicians, musicians, orators, ice skaters, but never, oh never, students. A Sophomore is known for his outlook on life, so succinctly put by prize fighters as " punchy. " Above all, a Sophomore ' s powers of concentration are his greatest asset, for some have been known to gaze at a picture in Esquire for an indefinite length of time. 33 ' j c ' ■ ■ ' " . ' npfvS m KS ■ g ' miH 1 ■ mm. Dick Markham, Spud Melin, Thomas Box, Huston Denslow and Bill Linsstrom. President Arthur Melin Vice President Richard Markham Secretary-Treasurer Thomas Box From the first faint glimmers of civilization, Freshmen have been oppressed by their elders. This year marked a radical departure from this time-worn custom, and the neophytes were allowed to flourish without the help of the kindly Seniors. The experi- ment met with remarkable results. Many immediately blossomed, while others spent most of the year developing their precocity. Dick Markham and Spud Melin became the undisputed wrestling champs of the high school. (Although their ethics were open to question, their results were undeniable); " Wild Bill " Denslow holds the bubble-gum manipulating championship, with never a challenge to his supremacy; Tom Box showed a creditable tendency toward the pure and simple life; while Bill Lingstrom ' s excellent health at the end of the year is a gleaming monument to Senior leniency. 34 The administration of the grade school falls into two divisions: upper and lower. The lower, while holding itself responsible to Miss Gusweiler and the grade school officers, nevertheless keeps more or less severely aloof. Due to a mysterious system of recall, their officers appear and disappear with the astounding regularity of those in Latin American countries. Bill Ridgeway, Donald White, and John Baldwin have taken turns holding office. The upper grade school, the sixth grade up, has officers who remain in power for one fiscal year. This year, under Dictator Murray the boys have had a hilarious time. In the Spring comes the grade school ' s big chance to compete for the glory of Flintridge. When swimming season comes around, it finds the old er boys of the lower division waiting. Indeed, they have managed to keep pace with their high school- mates by taking the junior title in the Prep League swimming meet for the past two years. 35 The school year started off in fine style for the gradeschool with a gigantic spelling bee. The event was inspired by Mr. Jardine, and it was an imnnense success, presaging more such contests in coming years. When all but one was spelled down, the spectators recognized the ample form of Jack hluntley. This feat entitles Jack to carry the appellation of " walking dictionary " for the next year, until such time as his title may be won by another hopeful. The Third Annual Easter Egg hlunt was indulged in and enjoyed by the whole gradeschool. As usual, the bushes and shrubs on the front lawn suffered from the ravages of the searchers. Prospects for the ditch day, which will occur after the " Log " has gone to press, are fine. Previous trips to the beach have all been great fun-provokers, and there is no reason why this year ' s should be different. Miss Gusweiler ' s troup were engaged in one long round of revelry. They went to movies, gave parties, and held torchlight parades. The chief party giver was Culbert " Cully " Sudler by virtue of his soiree at Thanksgiving. 36 inifiiK 37 The C.S.F., the Phi Beta Kappa of High schools, this year became one of the most active groups in the school. At the first meeting the members, Ben Earl, Jim Gamble, Dan Frost and Ted Munroe, elected the latter two President and Secretary respectively, and then immediately voted themselves a ditch day to v hich they were entitled. So on October 27th, the four members, accompanied by Mr. Lowery and Mr. Dickinson, journeyed to Burbank to inspect the Lockheed Air Corporation plant, a rare privilege in view of the fact that the war raging in Europe has made it practically impossible to gain entrance. There they saw bombers being built, ready for shipment to England, with the rapidity of two a day. Tales of the day ' s experiences, and the ever present urge for higher grades, seemed the incentive for other boys to try to make the grade standing of three A ' s and a B. The next semester Mac Lawrence became a new member in addition to the four who maintained their standing. Also at mid-semester, Flintridge presented her fourth life membership in the Federation in the six years of her existence, and this one went to Ted Munroe, who had kept his grades up to the level for seven consecutive semesters. What this present crop of brains will do remains to be seen; but for what they have done, these boys who compose this year ' s chapter should be highly congratulated, .as they have not only won one of the highest awards a high school offers, but also one of the few preparatory school honors recognized in college. 38 Contrary to the opinion of the majority of the readers of this annual, the task of producins such a book as this is no easy one. The boys on the staff are not given the positions as sinecures to get their pictures in the book another time, and they really deserve much more credit than it is here possible to give them. It was through their untiring efforts alone that the publication of this book v as made possible. Much praise and many thanks are due the following staff members for their splendid work. Chuck Detoy, the invaluable assistant editor, was the author of the interesting biographical quips on the teachers and the Seniors. Dan Frost wrote en- tertainingly of the social activities, and contributed numerous other articles throughout this annual. Jim Gamble, " the man behind the headlines " , has attempted to reproduce the sports season in just the manner the above quotation intimates. Ted Munroe was the editor-in-chief; it was he who begat the Flintridge Log, it was he who acted as a patient mediator between the publishers and the short tempered students, and again he who worked continually with all those herein mentioned, helping them and making their jobs easier. The rest of the staff ' s literary powers are too primitive to properly express themselves here, but we all wish to say that in the future, Ted, when we ' ll be arguing in the halls of Congress and maybe living in the White hlouse, well, come around and we ' ll treat a brainy engineer to a hamburger and a chocolate soda. Dick Munroe and Mac Lawrence must not be overlooked, for it was they who had the responsibility of obtaining the financial backing necessary for the publication of this book, and they really did a colossal piece of work. Not only was the book more than paid for, but enough extra money was made for the staff to have a big party for themselves, besides having something left for the next year ' s staff. And last, but in no way least, for if it were least, this record could not be much of an annual, was Jim Gamble, who found time inbetween his article writing to take these " pictures. D As everybody knows a school paper is an integral part of campus life, and without it the recording of timely and oftentimes untimely facts throughout the year would be sorely missed. Yet few realize the work behind just one seemingly trivial issue. So, in spite of the fact that for a few weeks during the year Mr. Lynch, their most able and hard-working advisor, had to spur the staff onward in order that we might have a newspaper, they deserve many thanks for their work. A special vote of gratitude is due Mr. Lynch for his most appreciated work, and another is deserved by the school office for faithfully printing each issue. The ' bald-headed man with a green eye shade and a cigar stub ' , or in other words the editor as he would be known in movies, happened to be Tom Melin. hie was assisted by ' campus personality ' Dan Frost, whose weekly article was one of the most read. Mac Lawrence also contributed, but, to speak in electrical terms, his flow was pulsating. Near the end of the year Huston Denslow and Don Bullock came into their prime, for then was the time the " Hoi Polloi Extravaganza " was printed, and this time I mean printed. With Huston as chief and Don his assistant, the typesetters produced what is hoped to be the beginning of the real newspaper era for Flintridge. 40 Si U Throughout every school year some occasions demand to be recorded for the edification of those who wish a complete picture of the year ' s activities. In such a way, we are presenting the high lights of the Flintridge social calendar for 1939-40. Since the athletic banquet comes too late for publication in this annual, it will have to be left out; but, except for that, you have below a composite picture of the social affairs on Flintridge Hill. FIELD DAY Mothers of the students decided to assist the money raising campaign for the annual. The Field Day was really their day to show their sons how to get things done efficiently. On the program were a number of athletic events. First there was the exhibition put on by the basketball team. They did various warming-up exercises, followed by a brief scrimmage. This exhibition was succeeded by a group of gym- nasts. They tried to show the ideas In body building that are used on the FHill. Following this the two hundred visitors were moved inside for a look at the swimming team. Mammoth relays were held, containing as many as fourteen on a side. Brother teams were a great attraction, pitting the elders against the youths. The younger boys really held their own, proving that swimming is more than just bulging muscles. With the end of the swimming, the grand finale was added to the list of enter- tainments. This was the excellent array of tasty morsels la id on the tables in the dining room. The school should certainly persuade the mothers to put on such an affair every year. ALUMNI BANQUET During Christmas vacation, Flintridge used the presence of her returning alumni to rally all loyal sons ' neath her banners. The halls were bedecked for the occasion — that is the halls of the Pasadena Athletic Club wherein all festivity went on. The multitude numbered about fifty, including eighteen graduates. The hour was set at 6:30, and promptly on the second the thundering herd poured in, starving to the last man. After devouring the platters of juicy steaks set before them, all settled back comfortably in their seats to view the proceedings. Coach McNeish of U.S.C. was the guest speaker of the evening. He gave an interesting expose Into the life of a football scout. After his talk an open forum was held dealing with anything connected with pigskins. A lively discussion ensued on the merits of different teams In the country and of the difference In ability between the East and the West. Needless to say. Coach McNelsh had an answer for all questions. After McNeish ' s talk, Dan Frost brought the subject from pigskins to alumni, by acting as official greeter. He called on all eighteen grads to show their credentials and attempt to give impromptu talks on their post Flintridgean life. A noteworthy fact was that we had representatives from as far as Harvard and from as near as Cal. Tech. Following these impromptu speeches, Mr. Dickinson gave forth all contemporary news around the campus. Mr. Lyndon gave the sports outlook and Mr. Lowery finished the festivities with a summary of the school ' s progress during the last seven years. One of the factors that contributed to the success of the banquet was the feeling of all that they personally particip ated. It was really one big happy family. As trite as the expression may be, it describes perfectly the feeling that prevailed. Great hilarity arose from the tales of the grads. Some of them were jewels that should live on for posterity. And so we leave the success of next year ' s banquet in your hands. Juniors, confident that you will profit by our mistakes and set an example to be followed by Incoming classes. BASKET BALL DANCE The first basket ball game of the year was especially marked by the appear- ance of our new silk uniforms. The funds for the new suits were raised by a benefit game later in the season. The occasion was the S.C.M.A. game, which our team won 19 - 18. Undoubtedly the players were greatly encouraged by the female influence in the crowd. For one and all escorted their fair ladies to the game, which was followed by an informal dance in the gym under the experienced guidance of Mr. Lyndon. The game was a night affair lasting until ten o ' clock. It was an extremely chilly night, one of those freaks handled by the California weather bureau, but the gym was warm and the music espouting from the victrola was certainly an added factor in kindling the bones. Once when a cold draft of air had managed to sneak through a crack in the door, Billy Robbins started to work on his drums; and the result was a quick exit for Mr. Draft. In fact, Billy was so torrid that the most conservative began to tap it out. Since the affair was the first of the school dances, all worked hard for its success. And it did set a high mark for the coming parties. As ThHE FLINTRIDGE LOG goes to press there are still three big events to take place. The most uncertain, at least to the Juniors, is the Senior ' ditch day ' . It is a safe bet any way you look at it that some day, somewhere, and somehow, some class will be enjoying itself while the others slave at school. Shortly after the hostilities of ' ditch day ' are over the Juniors are planning to give a party for the Seniors. What and where it will be is up to the Juniors, but to quote last year ' s Juniors now Seniors, " It will have to be a whopper to come any where near what we gave last year, " and just such a " whopper " the Juniors say they are going to give. To climax the school year in sports about June 7 will be held the annual Fathers ' and Sons ' Banquet. Then letters earned will be awarded, this annual distributed, and the most valued awards given in the school announced; that is, the sportsmanship and the all around athlete presentations. All this will occur after the various Captains of the different sports have told us about the season. To judge from last year ' s banquet, the affair should be one of the best of the school year. fllillllC 43 niiflii This year ' s basketball team v ill be remembered for the fine leadership of Captain Thorndike Mackay, the excellence of its team play, its first division rankins and last but not least the splendor of its uniforms. The first practice was held several weeks before Christmas vacation, and Coach Lyndon was soon glowing with enthusiasm and satisfaction over the new material that had appeared to help fill the hole made in the front line by graduation. The first two weeks were spent on fundamentals and on intramural competition. These first scrimmages soon made it clear that two newcomers, Ogden Kellogg, brother of the illustrious Bill, and John Eliel were going to be hard to keep off the first string; while Charles Schimpff and Bill Robbins, an old Flintridger returned to the fold, would see plenty of service. Likely looking holdovers were Thorndike Mackay, Benny Earl, Dick Munroe, Jimmy Gamble, and Don Baxter, who had seen service the last season, and a number of others whose improvement over previous performances made them contenders. At the end of the first two weeks Thorndike Mackay v as elected captain, and then the team really began to take shape. The first game brought Flintridge against Dewey on the home floor. The visitors were heavy pre-season favorites to win the league since they had a veteran team which was runner-up the previous season. The game was bitterly contested until the last five minutes, when a brilliant Flintridge scoring spree gave us a victory, 23 to 16. Mackay was easily the outstanding player on the floor in this game. During the Christmas Holidays the team lost considerable form due to heavy Christmas eating, but still managed to win over a fighting Pacific squad, in a wild and wooly affair which saw the heavy scoring done from the foul line. 44 The next game was played on a foreign court, and the boys proved that they were really home bodies after all. The contest was dropped to St. Anthony. The team still seemed to be suffering from an excess of Christmas spirit. The affair was note- worthy because of a third quarter in which both sides made nary a single point. The days which followed were spent in preparation for the night game. It was during the " knight game " (dates compulsory) practices that onlookers realized the team had improved. Mackay was sinking shots from all around the foul line region. Dick Munroe could usually plug a third of his long shots, while Kellogg had developed a pleasantly efficient hook shot. Eliel was good on some days and doing chemistry on others . . . The team was becoming geared to Coach ' s system and the whole machine functioned more smoothly. The 19th of January was the fatal date; the time, 8 P.M.; the place the McKinley Gym. The game was a sell out, and the crowd, much to the secret pleasure of certain team members, was saturated with shrieking girls when the team raced from the locker room, through the open doors efficiently held by managers Goodan and Lissner. More than the usual number of foul shots were missed during this game, but then again, each team member had his moment. Kellogg and Munroe carried off the biggest share of the honors. The latter sank some brilliant long shots and the former nearly knocked certain maidens off the bleachers when he pocketed a beautiful hook shot from near the foul line for the winning margin with but seconds to go. One of the game ' s highlights took place when headmaster Dickinson was seen chasing the official across the floor yelling wildly that the horn was clogged and the quarter long since terminated. The facts that Flintridge won by only one point and that a strange man in the audience kept calling Mr. Lowery " Oscar " made this game the most exciting one of the year. At Spanish American, Flintridge played its best game of the season, especially on defense, but were outplayed by the league champions who really deserved to win. The boys need no alibi for this one. In the following Oneonta game, the whole squad had a chance to show its wares. Walters broke through the entire opposing team and thundered down for a basket, while Ted Munroe and Charles " Tootsies " Shimpff were terrific. Baxter was hinh point man, with Gamble and blue eyed Robbie Robbins staggering along behind ' " At left is Cap- tain Mackay and on the right he is seen making one of his favorite shots, a two- handed overhead toss at the bucket. John Eliel (No. 13 at left) puts the ball well on its way to the basket from a toss-up with a hiarvard man. At right Jim Gamble attempts a buck- et. Two weeks then passed; a hiatus in the basketball season resulting from a flu epidemic of major intensity at hHarvard and of minor importance with us. Practice was curtailed and there was a general letdown. The hiarvard game, the only one for which we have any regrets, was the result. After a fairly even first half, Flintridge was defeated by some ten points. The only possible excuse for this defeat was that our lads were unable to accustom themselves to the strange outdoor court, and the poor condition of the squad due to lack of practice. According to one school of thought T. Munroe and Walters were the teams ' best sports. B. Earl showed the most spirit; and Eliel, the most improvement. Manager Lissner will probably be the high scoring college forward in future years. Schimpff had the queerest experiences; Robbins, the neatest appearance; and D. Munroe, the most ability to bamboozle the officials. Owing to three defeats, Flintridge stood third in the league at the end of the season, and despite the fact that it is our highest basketball ranking in school history, it failed to settle the question of where the trophy should be placed and who should polish it. Captain Mackay, of course, was high scorer on the squad and easily its out- standing player. His splendid spirit and sportsmanship, his fine leadership, and the strength and excellence of his all around play will be sorely missed when he graduates this June. Thorny made 57 points during the season. Kellogg followed with 22 to his credit. Both Ogden and Mackay played 26 quarters, missing only two quarters during the entire season. The outlook for next season is bright despite the loss of Captain Mackay for all four of the other first stringers return--D. Munroe, Eliel, Kellogg, and Earl, and While Don Baxter, Walters and T. Munroe from the reserves are lost, a number of good men will be ready to fill in. Detoy, Robbins, Schimpff, Weaver, Gamble, among others should see plenty of service. Too much credit cannot be given to Senior Manager Doug Goodan and his able assistant. Bob Lissner. These men get precious little glory, but it was their hard work that went far to make the season a success. BASKETBALL LEAGUE STANDINGS School Won Lost Span. American 7 St. Anthony 5 2 Flintridge 4 3 hiarvard 4 3 School Won Pacific 3 Dewey 3 S.C.M.A 2 Oneonta Lost 4 4 5 7 This year Flintridse had, without a doubt, the strongest swimming team in school history. Both Munroes went through the entire official season without suffering defeat, and certain other members of the team consistently placed either first or second. Because of the reputation that Flintridge has acquired for swimming proficiency, dual meets are becoming quite hard to arrange. Swimming the 220 yard free style was Capt. Ted Munroe. Little needs to be said of Ted, for his records are the greatest compliment he has. hlis fastest time on the 220 was around 2:30, and he has done the hundred free style in 55 seconds. Other tasks that he undertook during the year were anchoring the four-man relay team, and setting the fifty free style record at 24.5. Ted graduates this year, and although we have Dick Markham to take his place, Ted, the greatest swimmer Flintridge has ever had, will be sorely missed. Next year Dickie Markham will have the arduous task of plying of 220 free style honors. To his opponents, he ' s embarrassingly little: to us he ' s phenomenal. Weighing only I 13 and standing a full head below his team mates, he seems too small to even swim his distance, but he not only swims it but wins, throwing the whole school into gleeful titlllation. Robbins, Flintridge ' s number one woman-killer, tore himself away from the gay life that young blades of his category should lead and trained diligently to swim in the hundred and fifty yard free style. Bill is normally in the habit of swimming the fifty in 27 seconds, but can reduce this time to 26.5 with the stimulation provided by the presence of female spectators. Bill did wonderfully — no sarcasm meant William — and next year will be a real threat in the hundred. Messrs. Box, Lyons, and Schimpff were given an introductory year in the back stroke, and Coach believes that in a couple of years the team ' s backstroke division will be its strongest. Box and Schimpff are both conveniently tall with long arms and legs, which help considerably provided they are kept working. If Schimpff can be cured of hitting his head on the walls of the pool, he can possibly do better. All three wear size eleven shoes (or larger), eat like horses, and have the same ambition: to take private swimming lessons from Eleanor hlolm. 47 Dick Munroe, as did Charlie Markham, and Gamble, swam in the first All-League meet as a freshman. His favorite events are the fifty free and individual medley. His fastest time on the fifty was 25.3, and in this event he was undefeated. Dick has plenty of spirit, and usually does better in competition than in practice. Next to his muscles, he loves his silk swmming suit best. Gamble is the antithesis of Munroe. While he turns in remarkable times for prac- tice races, in competition he practically drifts. J. R. swam the hundred breast, four- man relay, and sometimes in the fifty free. His fastest time was 1:12.5 in the breast, and 25 in the fifty free. He also loves his silk suit but the knowledge that he was underweight spoiled his meets for him. Some day a layer of fat will undoubtedly cover his bones, and then, even though he be slow, he ' ll be happy. Doug Goodan succeeded in making the backstroke division considerably stronger than it was in previous years. His easy win at the Pasadena Athletic Club over the P. J. C. Frosh and South Pasadena Varsity was the pride and joy of the school. Self- conscious in his silk suit, he ' s glad they start in the water for the backstroke. His technique is much like Ted ' s in the free style: slow, perfectly coordinated, smooth, that ' s Mister Goodan. It will be mighty hard to fill that two hundred pound hole Doug leaves in the team, and it ' s doubtful whether his 1:14 backstroke record will be broken for years to come. Charlie Markham has the best build in the high school, trains the hardest, and yet seldom comes in first. Reason: he swims the hardest events. Charlie has fought opposing breast-strokers along with Gamble for the past three years. Two times he has had to stand alone in the All League meet because of Gamble ' s absence, but both times he easily won his event. In the individual medley race at P. A. C, the most closely fought race of the year, he was unfortunately beaten by a fingernail ' s length after having gained steadily on his opponent during the last length. If his improvement continues, he will be next year ' s number one breast stroker. Charlie usually swims the breast stroke, medley relay, and the individual medley. Elected to lead o u r swimming team this year was Ted Munroe (left). Across from him is his brother Dick, o u r sprint man. At left is our unbeaten re- lay team; Mac- kay in the water, Gamble diving, and Dick and Ted waiting. A n up and coming swimmer is Dick Markham (right.) Mackay is strictly a relay man, leading off in the four-man and anchoring with the free style in the medley relay. For the past three years he has had a letter in swimming, and if he wishes, he has the ability to make any college swimming team. Consistent and modest. Thorny was one of the most reliable and best liked men on the team. Motto: " I like my swimmin ' , but darn those wimmin ' . " Wally Walters swam in the six-man relay against South Pasadena High and Pasaden Junior College Frosh, doing wonderful job as lead-off man. This was Wally ' s last year, and although he has never seriously gone out for swimming, his nonchalance and sprint ability made him a great asset to the team. Brady Johnson, also a com- panion of Wally ' s in the six-man relay, was the only diver in the school. Since facilities have been installed at home which will enable his practicing throughout the summer. Brady wil rejuvenate the diving division which has been dead for the last two years. In the grade school we have Joe McLain and Fred Ridgway acting as top men in the free style; Joe also does backstroke and Fred the breast. Hastings is another backstrol-.e contender who has shown great improvement in the last year. J. Earl does the breast and free style showing versatility which indicates medley possibilities. Up to this date. Bill Ridgway and Bob Jackson have patiently warmed the grade school bench, waiting for the day when the others will graduate and leave them in charge. In looking back over the year, we find that Harvard, Pasadena Junior College Frosh, South Pasadena, Los Angeles High, Dewey, Oneonta, Southern Cal. Military Academy, and Pacific Military Academy were all defeated by the Flintridge Varsity. We find that Coach had taken us at mid-year, a group of bedraggled kids who had to stop and gasp for air after swimming one lap, and that he had built up our physical condition, self-confidence, and ability until we formed a team which finally held the Pasadena City Championship. And now, all we can think of to say is a paltry, " Thanks Coach. " In looking ahead we find that next year we shall be without Ted Munroe, Thorny Mackay, Doug Goodan and Wally Walters. In the face of this we confidently reply, " We won ' t let you down Coach. " iniiii In early February it was known that the baseball season would be too early to avoid conflicting with swimming and the minor sports, so complete cooperation and considerable team spirit would be needed to wade successfully through our schedule. As was the case in basketball, uniforms were again supplied; this time partly by the students (sweatshirts) and mostly by the school. The pants were a light, blue-grey gabardine material which, if washed, would, according to inclosed warnings, shrink eight sizes and look like brushed wool. Robbins washed his, finding they did not shrink or change in the least, hie was given a laudatory speech by Coach for saving the team dry cleaning money. Baseball cleats were outlawed, the use of fungo bats was frowned upon, so the season was to be played with none but the customary, trite equipment, until L. V. L. appeared with several undersized bats that were to cause more strike-outs and fly-balls than pleased calculating Manager Reid Allen. After a few weeks of experimentation hiampton was placed at shortstop, Eliel took third, and Kellogg patroled the second base precinct. Dick Munroe replaced last year ' s first baseman Gamble, because of the latter ' s inability to control his throws and refrain from jumping out of the way of grounders. Robbins, Weaver, Schimpff and Moller kept up a constant battle with T. Munroe, Gamble and Mac Lawrence for posi- tions in the field. Those two bosom buddies, Lawrence and Robbins, severed diplo- matic relations shortly after the season opened when it was discovered they were both partial to the same position. Mac could snag flys quite ably, but when he missed his " grounders " he had quite a pronounced tendency to indulge in facial contortions or take time off to scold himself. Robbins had little trouble with " grounders, " but felt that flys were the greatest outfield hazard. Upon missing one he would pose, and remain in a semi-paralyzed state (much to the displeasure of Coach) until he felt his shame was sufficiently portrayed and his vindication effected. Mr. Lyndon finally decided that facial contortions were more tolerable than unpredicted paralytic af- flictions. Our battery, fondly called the " wink, sling and blink, " duet, was the cause of mighty palmy days for Coach. When Mackay wound up and Earl adjusted the yellow- ing mask, an expression of ecstatic snugness would take possession of L. V. Lyndon; when the opposing batters swished at the invisible ball with a futile grunt, his satisfac- tion would spread amongst the team making even verbose catcher Earl forgotten for the moment. Benny was the cause of the temporary downfall of every pitcher in the league. The volume of his " vocals " is equalled only by Lyon ' s. The confusing din that 50 Captain ot baseball is Thorn- dike M a c k a y (left). At risht Bob Hampton, our fi e r y short- stop, is shown showing how to put one out of the lot. his verbal typhoon astounding. can create, not only alone but by inciting the " bench boys, " is The first " official " workout was with hlarvard. Until the fourth inning when some- one persuaded Reid to tell that the score was tied, four up, the game was rather dull. Rabble-rouser Earl scuttled through the rooters hinting that the opposing pitcher was becoming uncomfortably proficient, hence vocal labor. The following inning hlarvard found their pitcher so nervous that it was necessary to replace him. It should be re- membered though that the lad had managed to cause several undersized bat wield- ing Flintridge men to strike out. Flintridge made two runs in the fifth, and hlarvard one in the sixth. The game luckily ended with the score six to five, in favor of Flintridge. Pacific and St. Anthony were both vanquished with little exertion other than on the part of noisy spectators. Vocal rather than physical lassitude was experi- enced after the bitter Pacific game. P. M. A. changed pitchers three times and finally gave in, although they shall always maintain that their football team is superior to ours. The St. Anthony boys were the handsomest lads Flintridge met throughout the season, but despite the fact they were sponsored by the church, the Almighty left them to blink as Mackay and Earl slung and winked. The score was II to 5 for Flintridge. On March 13th the team went to Oneonta where the competition was mild. The bench wigglers were asked to participate and this allowed the regular players to get a dose of substitute boredom. Being able to see Kellogg from the bench helped Dick Munroe considerably; he decided that spring had lightly turned Ogden ' s fancy. This application of Tennyson ' s law was rumored to be correct. S. C. M. A. was beaten 8 to 5 on a public park ground in Long Beach. The field was originally made with the forethought of someday growing grass thereon, but as the Long Beach climate is not conducive to growing, the dirt remained uncultivated, was packed down, and then baked by the sun, so that when the Flintridge squad took their places some fifty years later, the surface of the diamond could easily have been confused with cement or bedrock. The sun was a handicap to the outfielders and some complained of seeing spots because of it. (hHot, irritated bench boys retorted that the " spots " were bathing-suited female tennis players.) The cause of considerable intoxi- cation and cheering was Mac Lawrence ' s record discharge, which entailed his throw- ing the ball some hundred and fifty yards directly to home plate where Earl surprised a man coming in from third. The undersized bats were ineffective against the slowly O u r battery. Mackay pitches one to Benny Earl. The latter ' , 33 not only the best catcher on the team, but qI:o the best hit- ter. pitched balls, but because light bats can be swung with nnore gusto and a greater display of muscles, the spectators witnessed a superfluous amount of " pop flys " . The final score was 8 to 5 in our favor. (P. S. Junior Manager Bullock put in his appearance and did a noble job of wearing colored glasses.) So far the Flintridge team was undefeated and untied. We had fought, hollered, perspired, and laughed our way through the first five games and now we had to win, or be satisfied sharing a tie for League championship. The final game was with Spanish American who had lost only one of their matches; it meant big doings if we could conquer them also. The game was held there on Saturday, the 6th of April. There were prospective Flintridge students, players ' parents, and the entire Spanish American Institute present. Our outfielders frollicked in their stocking feet and had an enjoyable morning racing through the weeds. Mackay and Earl played truly admirable bail. Earl ' s batting was the best of the season. Munroe and Kellogg handled their share of infield business in a pleasantly effective manner, hiampton made several spectacular stops, Eliel seemed to think himself nervous although he did excellently. The crisis came in the last inning when the score was tied, one up; an opponent was restlessly lingering on third. A fly, which fell just between infield and the outfield, enabled the man on third to come home, making Spanish American the victors, 2 to I . Coach had promised the team a turkey dinner, win or lose, so home they came, having lost, anxious to forget their defeat with WINE (This wine was strangely white and called milk, vintage of the day before), WOMEN (No females were perceptible but because the buns seemed to mysteriously disappear it was suspected that invisible table nymphs were dancing up and down between the plates), and SONG (The rapid eating caused certain internal rumblings which could have been mistaken for the words of a modern jazz song). The final league standings showed that Flintridge shared a three-way tie for first place with Spanish American and hiarvard. Mac Lawrence and Ted Munroe had played their last game in the field for dear old " Flint, " but the legends will be passed down of how those two raced through Spanish weeds and dodged jumping pits in the S. A. I. game of forty. Mackay had certainly wound up his pitching career with an excellent performance, having pitched with amazing speed and accuracy in the face of a pack of bellowing heathens. They who know unanimously agree that Flintridge has never had a better pitcher than Thorny, never has had a better season than this year ' s, and that any team possessing a deaf pitcher can easily top the league. Since this book is going to press before the tennis season opens, we can only give a tentative line-up and the schedule. The season starts on May 10, with the opponents Cunnnock School of Los Angeles. The team will have been practicing for but a month; however, from the group of " Beetle " Weaver, Mac Lawrence, John Eliel, Ogden Kellogg, and Dan Frost it is thought doubles and singles teams can be chosen which will compare favorably with other schools ' teams. The rest of the season will include matches with hiarvard Military Academy, South- ern California Military Academy, John Dewey School of Long Beach, and Pacific Military Academy. The Prep League Tennis Tournament will be held May 25 at Long Beach Tennis Club, hlere each school will enter two players in the singles field and one team in the doubles drawing. Last year Flintridge won both competitions with Don Daniels in the singles and Ted Yates and Bill Kellogg in the doubles. Since these three boys have graduated, this year ' s battles promise to be close. At present, under Mr. Myers, the team has been banging the ball every after- noon at the Kellogg Court. John Eliel is promising to be a fine player, and once he has contracted a little experience there ' s no telling whom he will beat. Og Kellogg has been played for years and has developed a good all around game. " Beetle " Weaver was last year ' s manager, but the love of watching his team mates in action led him to active duty on the courts. He, too, needs but a little experience to go places. Last member of the team is Captain Dan Frost who, at this moment of writing, is a shade better than the rest. Cannon ball serves and overhead smashes are his specialties. Early in June the school championships will be played off for the Partridge Tennis Trophy. With improvement bound to play a big part in the outcome surprises may happen, but now it seems as if Kellogg and Frost will fight it out. lif Perhaps the most significant thing concerning this year ' s team was that, with one exception, it was composed of Juniors only. This fact is enough to give an idea of the prospects for next year, no matter what losses the team may sustain after this article is written. A brief resume of the teams played and defeated will give you some concept of the power our team possesses. With the idea of starting out in a big way, our first opponent was South Pasadena High. Ranking near the top among the Southland ' s high school teams. South Pasadena was expected to be victorious. Perhaps holding the contest at our home course gave us an advantage, because strangely enough, Flintridge won, 21 — 15. Hampton had the toughest competition of the day ending even up with Bill Cutler; both players turning in scores of 80. South Pasadena hastened to schedule a rematch to be played at their home course. Next followed the ignominious 18 — 6 defeat of the P. J. C. Frosh. The high- lights of the day were Bob Hampton ' s 78 and Frank Pope ' s 79. The strength of our team as a whole was shown by the fact that only one man lost points to his opponent. Then came the match with Eliot Junior High School. Again Hampton scored a 78, leading the team to a 27 — 9 victory. Among the matches on schedule is one of very great interest — the one with the omnipotent J. C. Varsity. Possessing one of the strongest teams in the Southland, theirs will perhaps be an easy task, but who knows? The League championship tourna- ment will fall on May the 4th, but should prove comparatively easy. Other matches If you want to see what a couple of Flint- ridge golfers look like there ' s Frank Pope at left and Ben Earl putting on the other side. will follow; among them the rematches with South Pasadena, the J. C. Frosh, and then possiby a match with Glendale HIigh. Potentially speaking, I feel we possess a very great golfer in the person of Bob Hampton. As captain and first position man of this year ' s team, he has frequently proved his ability by gaining the extra points when needed. Consistency is his motto, and whether in competition or not, he shoots In the middle 70 ' s or low 80 ' s. The status quo of Frank Pope as second man, is not quite so definite. Being an exponent of the " not far but straight " sort of game, Frank frequently suffers for lack of distance. Consequently his scores range from 78 to 111 As a matter of course the name of Ben Earl should be mentioned here, but the less said the better, hie has been known to shoot a 77, but they come few and far between. (Maybe he needs new clubs. Mom?) (Editor ' s note, Ben wrote this article). Thorndlke Mackay is notable for the rapid improvement of his game and for the fact that he is the only Senior on the team. hHe now constitutes a definite threat for second and third place, hiere ' s hoping we have more Mackays next year! Weaver is attempting to be a golfer and tennis player all at once, and has suc- ceeded admirably well. Earl will be a definite cog in the wheel of next year ' s team. Ogden Kellogg shows his versatility as both golfer and tennis player, hlis presence brings the team together to the strange body it is. The prospects for next year are perhaps the greatest in Flintrldge ' s golf history. With all but one player returning, Flintridge should have a rosy year. 1 J . FOOTBALL This year ' s interclass competition began when Senior Dan Frost challenged Junior class president Earl and his colleagues to a six man football game. The Juniors acknowledged the challenge, and after a few days of practice met the Senior team in battle. The entire school attended the fracas, Tuesday, October 3 I , at Brookside Park. The Juniors received the opening kick-off, with Kellogg returning the ball fifteen yards, and here, as well as throughout the entire game, the Juniors had dif- ficulty in gaining ground. The Junior defense soon ran weak under their opponent ' s efficient running plays. Eliel was perhaps the most valuable man on the Junior squad. hJis punting saved the puffing Juniors from numerous goal line episodes. When Senior quarterback Mackay was not in the game, T. Munroe did the passing and Baxter carried the ball. Frost and Walters blocked effectively, with Lawrence, Melin, and Goodan holding the line. In the Junior backfield were Earl, Kellogg and Eliel. The line was composed of three men from the group of D. Munroe, Gamble, Weaver, Allen, Johnson, and Pope. Although Mackay had hurled the elusive Lawrence several successful passes, and thus established an early 7 point lead, the Juniors were not discouraged and .managed to tie the score by the third quarter. Later with minutes to go, a pass was tossed by Earl and juggled by a defensive Senior into Gamble ' s waiting hands for a surprise touchdown. A quick conversion definitely cinched the game in favor of the Juniors. The Sophomore-Freshmen team ceded the championship to them, realizing the futility of facing superior forces. During the game Senior advisor Lynch had hollered words of encouragement, while Junior advisor Myers remained calm, hoping other interclass events would be as successful as this one. BASKETBALL On one windy day in February, namely the 16th, baseball practice was dis- continued for one afternoon to run off the Senior-Junior basketball game. The Juniors were heavily favored; both because four of the varsity ' s first string men were Juniors, and also because of their previous victory over the Seniors. The whole student body was there; blankets were spread for some, and the " gradeschoolers " could be heard playing " cops-and-robbers " in the distance. Seniors Goodan, Mackay, T. Munroe, Lawrence, Walters, Frost, and Bullock were all present for the scuffle. Goodan, Bullock, and Lawrence made their debut on the basketball court as players, thus silencing their critical tongues. Juniors present were Allen, Weaver, D. Munroe, B. Earl, C. Markham, Gamble, Kellogg, Eliel, and Hampton. The Seniors led for the first half of the game, with Mackay keeping the pot boiling with intermittent baskets. FHampton scored the only basket for the Juniors during the first half, although many of his team-mates had excellent opportunities. More fouls were called on the Juniors during the first half than on their opponents, much to the relief of T. Munroe, a much bewildered Senior who was laboring under the illusion that the Juniors were out to " get " him. During the second half, the Juniors climbed towards the capstone, but dis- played remarkable energy at missing foul shots, which were suddenly coming their way. Frost, unable to check his mass, was called numerous times for charging, as was Walters. Bullock tended to manhandle his opponents, so was replaced. hHalf way through the third quarter blankets were discarded and the onlookers were lined up along the court, quite vociferous and unconfident in the Seniors when T. Munroe was sent off the court, raving mad because the Juniors had framed a fourth foul on him. One of D. Munroe ' s long shots finally slithered in and the gun went off before Walters had a chance to shoot his much needed foul shot, hialf the mob went blithely off yelling that the Juniors had won, but it was announced that the score was tied, so another period was started. FHampton finally made a foul shot, making the score II to 10, in favor of the Juniors. The Seniors, two times thwarted in conflicts with Juniors, left the field muttering that revenge would come when the scholastic interclass contests were held. SPELLING BEE Once interclass competition had been decided upon, Mr. Dickinson insisted that a spelling bee be held to show everyone concerned that good Flintridge spellers are truly rare. Three students were entered from each class: Freshmen A. Melin, Box and D. Markham; Sophomores Lissner, Detoy, and Robbins; Juniors Eliel, Earl and D. Munroe, and Seniors Goodan, Lawrence, and Frost. The event took place on Friday, November 17, lasting only a short time. Robbins and Munroe were the last ones to fall, but class average was the basis for scoring and the Senior class was victorious. The biggest surprise of the day came when Mr. Dickinson astounded most students and some faculty members by announcing that " rarefy " was spelled with an " E " and not an " I " . TICKET SALES Along about January 30 the Juniors seemed to prove, to the satisfaction of all, which class was the most filled with ' spongers ' , pests, and all other things with such appropriate names. The method of determination was from the results o f a ticket sale for our night basketball game. After final count had been taken, Mr. Dickinson was able to announce that the Juniors had sold, pawned, or subtly given away more tickets (6.6 average) to their imposed upon friends than any of the other classes. The Seniors still point out, however, that they might have had this honor had they pestered their friends for but two tenths of a ticket average more. Then both the Freshmen and the Sophomores loudly proclaimed that they were the only gentlemen in the school by selling an average of but three apiece, but this shortage of sales was hinted to have been caused by bashfulness. ACADEMIC AVERAGE CONTESTS When a person has an abundance of brains or brawn alone, that ' s something, but when he has superfluous amounts of both, why it would be just too much praise to tell the person so for fear he would swell up and float away. The Seniors this year, however, think that it is being too childish to keep a secret from anybody, so they wish to modestly tell all the world that will listen, the truth; that is, that they think themselves in possession of the extra-superior combination of both brains and brawn. The brawn, they say, will have been amply demonstrated on ' ditch day ' when the Juniors have tried to stop them, if anyone needs a demon- stration for proof. The brains, they claim, have proved themselves evident, for in every month of competition but the first, the Seniors have far outdistanced all the other classes. According to the results released by Mr. Dickinson they averaged better than a B plus, and upon investigation it was found to be a fact that none of the teachers was bribed. ESSAY CONTEST Having won the scholastic awards per month for highest class standings, the Seniors naturally felt that the essay contest would also be won by their more journalistic members; however, as usual, they underestimated their rival schoolmates ' literary powers. The subject finally chosen was Horizons , and the number of interpretations of this subject is practically unlimited. Denslow turned in a remarkable piece of work which presented the possibilities of wanderlust in potato bugs. Senior Lawrence treated the horizons of a cave man, while his classmate Frost turned pacifist by elaborating on the futility of wars. Mr. Gamble finally won the affair for the Juniors, with Junior Reid Allen and Freshman Denslow being runner-ups. Gamble pounded out a typically imaginative saga concerning the dreams of a rather mentally alienated female. Grass skirts, broken bottles, repulsive spiders, and invisible males were all treated in this odd essay, which according to the Judges ' opinions, seemed to give the most acceptable picture of some kind of horizon. They who thought their essays solved world problems of unemployment, etc., were quite displeased to think that insanity should be chosen in preference to social reform matter; however, their dis- pleasure was no greater than J. R. ' s surprise when he found himself the winner and able to stretch out and digest a long desired volume of Tennyson ' s works which he received as first prize. Seniors Juniors Sophomores Freshmen Football 10 Basketball 10 Spelling Bee 10 Essay Contest 10 Academic Averages 10 2 Ticket Sales 10 Events to Come ... ... ... ... Totals THE FORECAST Again we are forced to use the hackneyed phrase " as the Log goes to press " and explain that several interclass events have not yet happened. Shortly after this is written the " swimming meet will take place. It will be the most closely contested event of the year, as both the Seniors and the Juniors have equal swimming strength. The Seniors are expected to win the medley relay, 100 and 220 free style races, and the backstroke while the Juniors will probably take the breast stroke, the four man relay, the individual medley and the 50 free style. Junior Johnson, being the school ' s only diver will easily win his event. From this it can be seen that the outcome of the meet will depend upon the second and third place points. The victors were the An oratorical contest will be held a few days after the swimming meet. Frost and Walters will support the Seniors in this fracas; Weaver and B. Earl will spit and fume for the honor of the Juniors; the Sophomores and Freshmen will enter the contest as a matter of course, but as yet their supporters are unnamed. Daniel Francis Frost III will recite " Casey at the Bat " , a piece quite fitting to his vivacious person- ality, and it is expected that the Seniors will win the event. The winner was There will be no interclass golf matches as the Juniors have been conceded victory by the understanding Seniors. Tennis matches will perhaps be held, and in this, as in swimming, competition will be close. Frost and Lawrence will battle against Kellogg, Eliel, and perhaps Weaver, or some others who feel themselves to be of aid. From all appearances, it seems that the Juniors will win this years series of events, and will continue their victories next year as Seniors, as little competition is yet in sight from the lower class men. Final standings between the classes were Seniors points. Juniors points. Sophomores points, and Freshmen points, which obviously shows that the were the final victors. SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD JAMES EDWARD MUNROE Because he keeps his head in all situations; because he is kind and modest, win or lose; because he is a fine athlete and a splendid student; because of his unselfish and wholehearted school spirit; the students and faculty vote to " Ted " our highest honor, The Sportsmanship Award. ATHLETIC AWARD ALDEN THORNDIKE MACKAY " Thorny " is one of the finest all around athletes in Flintridge history, and a true Flintridge product— raised from a pup. He is Captain of basketball and baseball, a first string swimmer and a member of the golf team. It is no surprise therefore that for the second time Thorny is adjudged the All Around Athlete of the year. September 18, school opened with all the veterans back along with the new recruits ready to stage intellectual wars with the faculty. Activity was somewhat quieted for the first week by the ' hot spell ' which took turns breaking thermometers and morale. September 20 saw Coach Lyndon organize four intramural football teams which battled in Flintridge ' s own " Dust Bowl " for weeks on end, till On November I , a memorable date for the Juniors, a Senior and a Junior team lined up on opposing sides in a gridiron " gigantic " that was to decide the supremacy in football. It was clear after the game that the teams were so evenly matched that only the gods could decide the winner, and they decided in favor of the Juniors by a score of 14 to 7. The days of the Grecian orators were recalled on November 7, when, after much haranguing, the name of this annual was changed to THE FLINTRIDGE LOG Friday, of the next week, was marked by a good old-fashioned spelling bee in which the Seniors evened the score between the two classes by soundly trouncing the Juniors. After two weeks of intramural basketball employing the ' close your eyes and shoot ' method, on November 20 serious practice began for the regular season. Thursday, November 30, school was dismissed for the Thanksgiving holidays, with the boys in a much more joyous condition than they were when the next Monday happened around with all students conditioned perfectly for one of Coach Lyndon ' s ' pepper-upper ' gym classes. On December 14, everyone turned out to cheer for our team in the first basket- ball game of the season. This greatly helped the boys since Dewey was sent down to defeat, 23-16, in a game which was close until its dying moments, when our scor- ing spurt turned it into a rout. December 15 was a marked day in the eyes of the Flintridgeans, for it marked not only the beginning of the vacations but also our first annual Field Day which was held to raise money for this year book. 62 », During Christmas vacation on December 27 our third annual Alumni Banquet was held at the Pasadena Athletic Club. Bob McNeish, U. S. C. football coach, was the speaker of the evening, and he interested all with his talk on " How to Scout a Football Team. " Afterwards many hot words were uttered by alumni as to the rela- tive merits of their various Alma Maters. January 2, school reopened. By the look in many faces it took no genius to tell that New Year ' s night life had taken its toll. January 4 saw the Flintridge basketball squad swamp the quintet from Pacific Military Academy by a score of 21-12. Led by Captain Mackay, who scored 12 points, our team showed that it could match roughness with roughness In winning the game. Our winning streak was broken when, after journeying all the way to Long Beach on the 12th, we lost to a powerful Saint Anthony team. Our boys just could not ' find ' themselves in the different gym till the game was more than half over but it was then too late and our valiant rally fell far short. Our fourth game of the season is one that wil never be forgotten by those who saw it. On January 19 a crowd of around three hundred gathered to witness the game against Southern California Military Academy. All three hundred yelled them- selves hoarse when Ogden Kellogg heaved a basket from mid-court in the last thirty seconds to give Flintridge the victory, 19-18. After the game, we held our first dance of the year in our gym, which was amazingly well decorated. It was announced the following Monday that Earl Weaver had won the ticket sale for the game and that the Junior Class had nosed the Seniors out by two-tenths of a ticket average. From then on, however, we owned the flashy suits that we played in. On January 23, we travelled to Gardena, only to lose again, this time to a versatile Spanish American quintet by the close score of 28-22. Captain Mackay distinguished himself by scoring 14 points. Two days later we easily outscored an Oneonta team, 36-12, in a game in which every member of the squad had a chance to prove his worth. January 26 to 29 was marked as a week-end of sleepless nights, hot coffee, wet towels, and aching heads. Finals the next week were the terrifying cause. Our last Prep League game of the season on February 9 was also our third loss of the year, this time to Harvard on their court by the score of 24-14. This was the third time our boys had travelled to meet an opponent, and also our third loss, but these were offset by four victories. b3 February 15 saw the finish of the basketball season as the Juniors, over-confident as they were, came from behind to edge out the Seniors 11-10 in the first overtime period. This put the Juniors ahead by fourteen points in the struggle for class supremacy. On February 24, with bats well polished, gloves thoroughly padded, and base- balls everywhere, we went into our first game of the new season. Somehow, in spite of many severe cases of ' jitters, ' the final score read 6-5 in our favor over the FHarvard team. In our next league encounter on March I against Pacific Military Academy we won in a " walkaway, " 14-6. The Pacific pitchers " blew up " and walked eight men in a row, and these walks, together with two or three hits, produced ten runs in one in- ning for us. The next week our baseball team showed it could really play baseball since the once mighty Saint Anthony team was turned back I 1-5. Enlarging our score consid- erably were homers hit by our batterymen. Earl and Mackay. The next day the Munroe brothers represented the school in the L. A. Invita- tional swimming meet, and garnered three medals between them. The 13th of March proved no unlucky day for Flintridge, as we continued vic- torious with a 2 I -0 victory over Oneonta. Two victories in two days seemed no trouble at all when our golf team soundly trounced South Pasadena ' s 21-15. Thus they established themselves as a team of the best high school golfers in Southern California. With everybody obviously needing it, wanting it, and enjoying it, Spring Vaca- tion came and went from the 15th to the 25th, although some ' absent-minded ' pupils thought the end came on the 26th, or at least they said so. At Black-Foxe Swimming Pool on the 29th Ted Munroe won the Southern Cali- fornia private school 100 yard title, with brother Dick coming fourth. The next morning our baseball team cinched at least a tie for the League Cham- pionship by a victory over Southern California Military Academy, 8-5. Mackay pitched his best game of the season and it seemed he had found his control. Both batting and fielding had improved; therefore — Hopes were high on the 6th of April that we would win undisputed claim to the championship in our last game of the season with Spanish American. And our hopes remained high till the last half of the last inning, when two runs were scored against us to give the boys from Gardena the victory, 2-1. Regardless, we went back to school and had a royal feast to celebrate the tie for the crown with five victories to a lone defeat. ' JIS " To keep in stride with the other teams, our swimming team started the season with a victory too, by nosing out the L. A. High team, 35-31. This was the second straight year we won from them, and in both meets the outcome depended on the final relay . The next day our second string boys were given a chance to show what they could do, and they showed they could do plenty, for the final score read 40-8 with hiarvard the loser. The grade school boys proved that it would be a long time before Flintridge would be lacking in swimmers by just as soundly trouncing hHarvard ' s lower classmen. To finish a very successful week for Flintridge in sports, the golf team Saturday defeated the P. J. C. Frosh, 18-6. Outstanding in the meet was Bob hiampton, who shot a 78. On Friday night, April 19th, our swimming team won the Pasadena fHigh School Championship by trouncing South Pasadena and P. J. C. Frosh in a three-way meet. Our paddlers won all but two events, with Jim Gamble pulling a surprise in winning the breast stroke. For the second successive week the golf team followed a Friday swimming vic- tory with a Saturday golf win, this time showing Eliot fHigh the way by a score of 27-9. April 27, 1940 was the date our swimming team was crowned Prep League Champion for the third successive time. Our boys won every event but the diving and set new records in all of them. The final score was Flintridge 65, S. C. M. A. 15, and Dewey 9. Thus we gained permanent possession of the trophy for three wins in a row. In a return match with South Pasadena ' s swimming team, our boys proved superiority lasts for more than a day, by again being victors, 40-33, on May 2. Either the teachers got tired or generous as they relinquished their positions to the Seniors on Student Government Day May 4. The next day our third League Championship for the year was won as our golf team most convincingly defeated all comers. May 7 was ' ditch day ' for the C. S. F. members who went to FHollywood to Twentieth Century-Fox Studios. As this annual goes to press May 7 there are a number of important events still to happen. Blanks are therefore left for you to write in the scores after publication. On May 10 our swimmers journey to Black-Foxe for the private school champion- ship of Southern California. Although only time will tell the tale, we have high hopes. Flintridge ' s position was May 25 will see the tennis championship of the League. As our team has had no matches as yet, nothing can be said one way or the other. Winner in singles 65 was and the winning team in doubles was Between May 7 and June 7 the Seniors are going to take their annual ' ditch day, ' even though the Juniors think they aren ' t. Some time between the above two dates the Juniors are going to entertain the Seniors. June 7 will see the distribution of this annual at the Fathers ' and Sons ' athletic banquet. On June 9 Baccalaureate Service will be held at the Church of the Lighted Window, La Canada. From the 1 0th to the 13th the worth of everyone ' s year ' s work will be determined during the final tests. June 14 will be graduation day, good-bye to all, farewell and good luck to every Senior.
