Starting inl 1933 with twenty-two boys of the lower grades, the school has grown, from child- hood, through adolescence and now manhood. In 1937 the first class was graduated. Now, we are not onlh having fine classes graduated, we are watching the progress of the alumni as they make their places in the world. On De- cember twenty-seven of this year, an alum association was formed. That was the climat . my inthe t of Flintridge. Q is almost .M 'H' 3 complete. The school is new institution A with any other. The completion of the vision is new up to the graduates. It is up to them to make an enviable record, both for the and themselves. It is up to the students tofraise the school to a position of high pres- tige, not only by proving it can turn out schol- ars. but gehtlemen who can make and deserve their placed in the world 'H it , i . . ,. 5 , A' ' 4 an 1 ' 3 'li W . , . . 4 S' . -1. 1' 'l 5 ' 1' 'S' 4 .dj .,, Q. ,iq ' A 5.3.13 fi .lf E I ' E 'qw 3- 1 JL .4 . 71 4, li r-4' .L V 9' ,Q .3 ,. .

These plus others make up the natural turn of mind of our Foreign Language master. Mr. Rose has a kind and patient tem- perament. He has a remarkably congenial personality. One has only to associate with the Senior for a short time to realize what a Wonderful character he has. With a man Who possesses such fine attributes before us, we are greatly aided in setting our own standards and goals toward which to strive. ln deep appre- :iation lor his influence on us and direction, we dedicate our annual to Mr, Ioseph Rose. 5 fag ,J X ,, f 0 o -6193, O --O A o f o I o X Faculty Flintridge is fortunate in having such a gener ous and capable president, who provides the leadership, direction, and means for accom plishing the objectives ot modern education. Mr. Lowery is very active in all school lunce tions, especially athletic events, where one may hear him adding his hardy cheers ol encour- agement to the boys lighting for "Ole Flint Prep". Mr. Lowery's helpfulness and deep understand' ing have done much to make him instantly popular with all those who have the good fortune of meeting him. 8 n Mr, Malcom Dickinson, headmaster, the rulinfi hand in the Science Department, and demerit giver supreme, is famous tor his hard tests and friendly advice to all who need a lew words of wisdom. At present he is worlcina on his PhD, at USC., which takes up his afternoons, normally spent watching with a critical eve all athletic prac tices.

The future stands before us in its fullest realization. It is a future built' on hope, filled with dreams, and supported by courage. Our act of leaving symbolizes not a con- clusion, but a beginning. The course has been charted with care and precision and we now launch upon the turbulent sea of life fully equipped. To attend Flintridge means to become a part of Flintridge. But only upon becoming a Senior does one realize the extent to which Flintridge becomes a part of the individual. The prevailing atmosphere of the school tends to stimulate an eager desire to participate in athletic and academic activities alike. This spirit, produced through the students, has become tradition. And while traditions such as this continue to exist, mankind, as well as Flintridge. shall progress. As our sun rises upon new worlds we shall not recall days spent at Flintridge without bringing to mind a multitude of indelible memories and lasting friendships. Within our hearts exists a sense of exultant joy mingled with an ever growing realization of sincere regret. A search for words to express adequately our thanks, our remorse at leaving, our hopes and dreams of the future for Flintridge would be to no avail. -OGDEN KELLOGG. 14 llggie- K1-Hogg l ani in love with tliis good green earth.

Reid Allen is a Comfortable man to have in any class. Helpful behind many scenes, and as capable as he is helpful, he is another of those who have more or less grown up with the school. Reid has ruled as chairman pro tern of the first period study hall, and in this capacity he was in a position of supreme power over his fellow beings, but it is interesting to note that, due to his Flintridge training, he took his power Inanfully and with a decent respect for his fellow man. 16 lla-ll Earl Oh come now, let's not be absurd. if Ben Earl, also known as HI. B." and "Swede", has flaunted his wavy blond curls on the Flintridge campus to good effect for three years now, and certainly with excellent results.

Deeper and liner feelings rustle about uri heeded in the murky depths ot his soul. He really a student of nature, a student of the arts. Prool ol this is a "B" in History and a loft lull ol pigeons. '2l Brody Johnson She might be beautiful but! 1 l Brady Iohnson is an uncertain quantity, almost, one might say, a dilettante. Some boys at school can remember when his Christian name was Walter and he was interested in horse- back riding. Then he lett and came back with a new surname and a consuming interest in drumming. Then came the author staae and the athlete period. What next? 22 .lIllll'll'S Nlnrklulnl I ain't dead, but l'm speechless, Charley lvlarkhain is the perfect balance for his more articulate and loquacious brothers ol the senior class.

Earll Weaver is definitely a freak ol nature, but, l hasten to append, not in a curious but in a pleasing sense. ln him are the spawn ol many various talents race driving, executive ability, championship tennis, par golf, maybe even a labor agitator.

Thus our Will. Ben Earl leaves behind him some well moulded footprints on the sands of Flintridge-'s "ball park." Hoping that these will be an inspiration to those who are coming up, Ben bequeaths in particular to Bill Robbins his athletic ability and enthusiasm. Now that graduation is here, Bob Hampton has this to say: "I have been at Flintridge three years now. Every one is aware of my 'remarkable' attendance record. So, without fur- ther ado, l hereby will my fine record to Bob Lissner, hoping that he will find opportunity to use it well." lim Gamble is Flintridge's master of unusual ideas and im- practical drearns, Behind him he leaves seventeen volumes of his fanciful "impressions," To Bob Ghrist, lim leaves these volumes to read and enjoy. Og Kellogg swings the meanest tennis racket around these parts. He feels that some of his proficiency could be used by almost any of the juniors, but Lissner and Moller could make the best use of it. Ken Hunter feels that at the bottom of any man's miseries lies a woman, "Keep clear of 'em and your troubles will be cut four-fold." This philosophy has failed him but he is a generous soul and thus he passes it down to Al Mitchum. Dick Munroe is Flintridge's all-time king of the "Loopholeless Alibi Club." He knows from experience that this is a most worthwhile achievement, Feeling that with a little more polish than he now shows, Bob Ghrist can make good use of this characteristic, therefore Dick wills to him his title. The best way to a teachers "heart" fnew colloquialism for "grade book"J is to sit back inconspicuously and let the class room talk go as it may, but never "stick your neck out." This is a prime rule from the notebook of Iohn Eliel who wills to Chuck Schimpff this trait. Brady Iohnson is the most unorthodox of any of the seniors in the way that he dresses. He gets a kick out of getting him- self up in some weird outfit and then coming to school. This simple forrn of amusement, he feels, must be left to some mem- ber of the Elintridge student body. Therefore, he leaves his long list of Hhaberdasheryu formulas to Chuck Detoy. Frank Pope is a golfer and also the possessor of a most fruit- ful imagination. He has been seen, in a pouring rain, sloshing down the fairway muttering to himself, "lt isn't raining, it isn't raining." Then as far as he is concerned it is nice and clear. He bequeaths this strange characteristic to Bill Robbins. Charlie Markham is able to write more on one page than any other of the brethern. He says he not only saves pages, but is able to convince the unsuspecting teachers that what appear to be l's are really t's and that i's are e's, With a little practice he feels that Lewis Lyon ought to be able to develop this ability to good advantage. Reid Allen, though coming back next year for a little more study, leaves to Chuck Schimpff his power of never becoming "wrought up" over trivial matters, "The only way that l managed to last through the week is by my ability to make the memory of the week-end linger." Here we quote Earl Weaver and discover a logical answer for his Clreaminess on Monday mornings. At any rate, Earl feels this faculty to be a real life saver and so he wills it to Chuck Detoy. 27 Senior . oroscope The scene: The Twizzletwig Tea Boom, Pasadena. The date: November, l976. Around a roaring gas furnace are seated twelve sedate gentlemen, showing the mild ravages of their advancing age with agreeable grace. The twelve have met for the thirty-fifth annual reunion of the class of '41, Flintridge Preparatory School. As it is a bit nippy out, the gentlemen are ringed closely about the faulty heating apparatus to extract what warmth they can from it. An old-style, indirect-lighting fixture in the ceiling overehead brings out physical imperfec tions with ruthless impartiality. First we see Brady Iohnson, noted globe-trotter and expert on matters foreign. A scar on his right cheek shows us where an enraged tiger found its mark. A much-broken nose shows us where an enraged native carrier lunged during a feverish grapple in the steamy closeness of the equatorial jungle. A black eye shows us where an enraged . . . oh, well, let's get on. Next in the circle is Frank Pope, the Honorable Frank Pope now, Knight of the locker room, and First Lord of the Back Nine. He has been so decorated by a grateful monarch in recognition for his services in the field of diplomacy. For mann' years he has honourably held a post in the British consulate in Nisni-Novogorod, and he is puffing contentedly on his faith' ful briar while he hears . . . Earll Weaver tell about managing the Davis Cup Team the past year. Upon the retirement of the present captain, Earll was unanimously chosen to replace him by a convention of gut-stringers which met in Corn Hollow, Kansas. However, un- fortunately for Earll, this recommendation was not enougii, and it was some time before Weaver managed to work up to his present exalted eminence. Robert Hampton, the next member of the circle, has just returned from the l8th green of the Altadena Country Club where he has been making a sucker out of Bobby lones by doing the Atlanta Master one better and taking no less than five major golf titles in one year: The British and American Opens, the British and American Amateurs, and the East Altae dena Open, sponsored by Websters Drug Store. The years find Bob with a walrus moustache, and he is known internationally as the grand old man of golf. Ogden Kellogg clicks a new set of false teeth reflectivelv, and switches the topic of conversation around to the coming season of racing at Santa Anita, Ogden has become famous all over America for the excellent breed of horses turned out every year from his farms. lt is only with the utmost restraint that he retrains from disclosing the high expectations he enter tains for a young filly in his stable, Marjorie M. 28 john Eliel has just arrived from the radio station where he has been broadcasting to the youth of America on a program called, with searching candor, "Wings". This is a program on which john hands out sage advice to those who are interested in air travel. Eliel himself has made quite a name in the air- craft industry by inventing an engineless plane for people who don't like the noise of flying. He has also made a great stride toward aeronautical advancement by contriving a step- ladder without any steps for those who work underneath planes. Dick Munroe explodes the real conversational bomb-shell on the meeting though. For some years he has been working on a bridge to span the Mississippi River up and down, in- stead of across. His theory is that one can't "peel" when in mid-stream, on the other hand, he maintains, the scenery is incomparable from a boat. His project is designed to include the desirable qualities of both. Reid Allen, agricultural expert, jumps to his feet when he sees what time it is. He has to catch the night plane for Wash- ington where he has a conference scheduled on the subject of a new ever-normal grainery. And also he has to see about some patents he has pending on a new machine to take the drudgery out of the farrner's life. This complicated gadget utters a soulful "by gum" when a button is pressed, thereby eliminating much extra effort. Kenneth Hunter strikes a dramatic pose, which his striking mop of silver hair allows him to do, and recounts his exploits on the field of battle where he attacked a strong enemy posi- tion single-handed, well almost single-handed anyway. For this daring feat he was awarded the very desirable command of Division B of the Ninth Army, stationed at San Bernardino. joseph Benjamin Earl amazes the conclave by telling about his new formula for stuffing ballot boxes. I. B. disguises this questionable act by the disarmingly long phrase, "Political taxidermy", but it still has contributed very greatly to his astounding rise in national politics. "A vote for Earl is a couple of votes for good government" is his motto. Charley Markham shows up tanned and healthy to report that he is running one of the country's most successful health resorts, at Palm Springs. Charley has gone far in the World by diligent use of convertible Buicks. Now in a position to usurp the position of aging Charles Atlas, Markham flexes a trapezis and mutters that the world would be far better off if only it had the knack of taking a week-end off now and then to visit Palm Springs. As for the twelfth member of the group, lim Gamble, renowned copra trader and pearl king, he glares enviously at the tweedy group about him and huddles closer to the heat, wishing he had worn something other than a sarong. 29 l Lett to right.

Commissioner of Academics Charles Markham. Commissioner of Athletics, Iames R, Gamble, Commissioner of Finance, Reid Allen, The Student Council has devoted its efforts principally to satisfying the wants and needs of the student body. lt also was supposed to act as a buffer between the faculty and students, but in this function it has not been severely tried. A few months after school started, it was discovered that the Annual Editor, who has been attending Council meetings regularly, was not a member. Because the Annual Editor had become an important position in the last few years, and since Dick contributed most of the ideas discussed, he was elected to the council. During the rest of the year the Council chose the dates for the various in- ter-class events, added a few new by-laws to the constitution, appointed editors for the school paper, and in general directed student affairs. 37 Lclilol' lndustrious, assiduous, sedulous, shrewd, sagacious, coriscieiitioufs, la-5 lidious, astute is our Editor.

This year's land last year'sl Man Friday was Chuck Detoy. Due to his ability in writing and his inability to say no, Chuck was imposed upon to create a majority of the printed matter. The Horoscope and the caricatures of the Seniors are a credit to his genius. So to Chuck goes our fondest hope that next year he make some other person the goat. Another Chuck- Charles Schimpff-has played a great part in the com- pletion of this annual. His was the job of abetting Mr. Christy with the pho- tography. Since no annual is better than its poorest picture land this is a good Logl, this was no small job, The total rnanehours he spent on developing and shooting pictures is worthy of defense preparation activities. "Hail, to thee, blithe spirit," Acting on an advisory basis only, lim Gamble contributed some ideas. The advertising department was placed in the hands of Ogden Kellogg and Iohn Eliel. Both performed a very creditable job and also contributed some articles.

After some indecision it was decided that, on their much envied ditch day, they would go to the Douglas Aircraft factory. This was a real privilege in View of the fact that the present war time operations prevent the general public from inspecting the plant. On February llth, the group led by Mr. Dickenson drove down to Santa Monica. One of the highlights of the trip was seeing the tremendous new bomber, the B-l9, which was a that time under construction. Ogden Kellogg, Charlie Markham, Dick Munroe, George Frazier, and loe McLain were additions to the CSF, during the second semester. By dint of considerable alibying, apple-polishing, and a little studying, they had raised their averages to the three A's and a B limit, fAnd are we gre-e-nl 42 ' -nr W9 O 0 O if 41 O - O IA O O ri 0 5, 1-vs -y:,Q,1-if g 113 I-,jlfigys 1 ., V . 1 7 , ,Q L ,E ports 43 ' asketball Sporting a new floor, a new schedule, and experienced players, the Flint ridge basketball team looked confidently toward sweeping the league in this fifth year of competition. The group that turned out for first practice in Octoe bers youth had had, for the most part, several years of experience at Flint- ridge, or some other school, thus composing one of the most seasoned teams to make its appearance in the Prep League. Ot the first string tKellogg, Eliel, Gamble, Munroe, and Earll Gamble, Munroe and Earl had been playing together for three years, and Kellogg and Eliel were letter-men on last year's varsity. Two other letter-holders from last year, Schimpff and Robbins, although they turned out for first practice, seemed to be unable to shake off a combination of Study-Hall and native lethargy which confined their energies to the sidelines. tin all fairness to Robbins, it must be stated that he crushed his leg to uselessness in gracefully executing a difficult gym exercisel Bob Streander, a new arrival at Flintridge, Al Mitchum, another novitiate, Tom Box, back for another year, and "Yogi" Iorgenson, Poly's gift to Flintridge, made up the rest of the reserve. Kenneth Hunter was also seen crashing around at peril to life and limb when Demon Study l-fall did not beckon. ln the first game of the season, on Ianuary lU, against Oneonta M. A. at the Presbyterian Church in Pasadena, Flintridge gave a fine demonstration of touching sportsmanship in being unwilling to deliver a sound trouncing to their vastly inferior rivals. At least, everyone said it was sportsmanship, 44 but it looked more like the time-honored Flintridge Custom of getting the season off to a miserable start. Flintridge won, 2544, but it was a tight squeeze. Eliel and Kellogg shared scoring honors with eight apiece, while Mitchum and Munroe gained four apiece, and Earl Completed the Flintridge quota with a free throw in the third quarter. Schimpff distinguished himself by going berserlc before the astonished throng and Clubbing right and left with both feet and arms. Before he could regain self--control he had amassed three personal fouls in almost as many seconds. A further lively note was lent to the game by the referee who had unfortunately failed to wipe off his glasses and therefore could not tell one side from another. This led to a dis' tressing impartiality in the assessing of fouls and other penalties. On the l7th of lanuary, Flintridge played host to Harvard lff, A. at the Pasadena Athletic Club, in the big game of the season. Harvard was definitely hot, and Flintridge didn't seem to care, a fact which allowed the visitors to get nine tallies in the first quarter. After this uneven start, Flintridge dazedly applied pressure and the score had already begun to right itself by the time the half arrived. The last half was filled with a blue haze of noise, perspiration, and scoring, as the lead see sawed dangerously. When it looked as if the home team was going to win, Harvard made a few last minute, desperation t I I A 1 tosses which stuck, and Flintridge lost 2l-26. Kellogg maintained his scoring priority over his team-mates by making nine points, Hunter, playing the excel-- lent game of which he is capable, made five, Ben Earl, in spite of slippery fingers, made three, and Gamble and Munroe teamed up to make two counters apiece. Matters took a turn for the better when Pacific M. A. took a 30 to 20 drubbing, on the 23rd at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church. Kellogg was again the hero of the day with ten points to his credit. Eliel with six points, Gamble with five, Hunter with four, Earl with three, and Mitchum with two accounted for Flintridge's first decent score of the year. The game was marked by the usual skirmishes and pitched battles that generally occur when gentle- men of Flintridge and Pacific clash. An adding machine was needed to keep track of the fatalities, while minor cuts, scratches and bruises were not even mentioned in the communiques. On Ianuary 30th, at Polytechnic Elementary School in Pasadena, the Flintridge second string ekecl out a 31-28 victory in a game which ran over time. Although hampered by the under-sized floor, Mitchum, Iorgenson and Streander starred in point-getting, while Melin, Box, Smith and Frazier pro- vided eager support. By now Flintridge had gathered together her terrible might from the ego- shattering game with Harvard, and on Ianuary 31, delivered a beating to Spanish-American that was awful to behold. Kellogg, with his hair stream- ing in the wind and his eyes flashing, moved like a Colossus among tthe pitiful peons, While 19 points flew from his practiced fingers. Gamble, his laugh raised to a cackle by the excitement, fled up and down the court, flinging the ball with unerring accuracy to get thirteen points. Hunter, he of the pho- togenic physique and the white nose, aced six points. Munroe and Earl got seven and three points respectively from guard position, and Eliel got a lone tally in the first quarter. The final score was 48-19, and it was a woe-begone and bedraggled Spanish-American team that trudged from the floor at game's end. This was the only game of the year held on the new court, all others having been held indoors because of treasonable inclemencies in the weather. The final game was the Aurora Borealis at the end of thte basketball trail. It was without a doubt the worst' beating the basketball-playing sons of Flint- ridge have ever delivered to an opponent. It wasn't that the opponent, South- em California Military Academy, was so poor, it was just that Flintridge was unstoppable. Flintridge scored 50 points to a miserable 17 for S.C.M.A. The referee stood transfixed in the center of the court, his clothes and hair flapping in the breeze from the great rush. Everybody joined in the free-for-all. Gamble and Hunter made thirteen points apiece, closely followed by Kellogg, who made eleven. Then came Earl with ten points, and Iorgenson, Melin and Munroe, all of whom made one apiece. Truly a satisfying end to a season in which Flintridge finished second in League competition, better than has ever been done by teams from 'this quarter. 46 asellall The starting game of the baseball season, on February 28, against Oneonta, was scheduled to be a warm-up, but Flintridge found it needed to become over-heated before squeezing out a victory, 3-l, The main purpose of the game was to select the team, and when the dust of battle had settled, "there was Streander sate at second, and Kellogg huggin' third." Also, Robbins at first base fit seems that Robbins sometimes had to sit up with a sick friend, so either Smith or Detoy took over in his absencej, Eliel at shortstop, and Mitchum, Munroe Iorgenson, Miller and Moller were scattered decoratively about the outer park. Hampton and the loquacious Earl took over the bat'- tery, and it was not found necessary to make a replacement in this quarter all season. After the mighty midgets of Oneonta had been dealt with, the Flintridge squad dug sleep from their eyes early on Saturday, March 8, and motored over to Harvard to lose by a score of 6-3, You will be pleased to know that the game was not lost until Flintridge had made one of its famous last-ditch struggles, Although we got the bases loaded several times, and managed to knock several Harvard pitchers to wherever bad pitchers go, Harvard clung tenaciously and effectively to an early lead, and not even Ben Earl, whose sturdy knees stopped more than one run, could change the outcome. 47 1 r 'T On March 17, Flintridge lost a home game to Spanish-American, by an ugly 8 to 3. A home run by Munroe fnow playing third base in place of Kellogg who had ruined a thumbl cmd the usual farcical fielding were the trade-marks of this game. The hitting was considerably improved over other games, but, unfortunately, the improvement could only be produced in spots. Besides Munroe, Detoy and Streander were the honored ones to make a tour of the bases. A double header on March 22, at Long Beach, found Flintridge winning a game from Southern California Military Academy, and then dropping one to Saint Anthony. ln the first game, against S.C.M.A., the score, 9-6, indicates that our men from Stoney Gulch had at last found themselves. Munroe made the circuit trip in the first inning by virtue of a lusty three-base wallop, and Mitchum obliged in the second. ln the fourth inning, Iorgenson, Robbins, Eliel and Mitchum bludgeoned their way to four runs, and from then on the game was "put away". Smith in the sixth, and Eliel and Earl in the seventh innings, blazed away to make the best score of the season for Flintridge. ln the second contest of the double header, St. Anthony proved a bit too strong in the fielding department, and so won, 10-5. In this series, in which he pitched all the way, Bob Hampton proved that he was just as good after fourteen innings as after four. Hampton, Robbins, Mitchum, Munroe, and Eliel came through with runs, but our somnolent fielders suffered from their chronic affliction, rigor mortis. A trip to Culver City, on the 26th of March, turned out to be most fruit- less. It was a job for a McCormick reaper, and not a baseball team. Greeted by a weedy field and an extreme scarcity of players, Flintridge finally left, and the game was chalked up as a forfeit in our favor. It is here that our record becomes a bit wet. It was a rainy Friday when the last game was played Qironically enough, against Dewey Schooll, but we see from the water-logged book so faithfully kept by Manager Allen, that the score fell in favor of the opposition: Dewey, 8, Boulder Haven, 6. In spite of a strong under-tow, and combers around home plate, both teams stuck it out at Brookside Park in a contest which soon took on the complexion of a water- polo match. Home runs by Munroe, Streander, and Eliel Che batted 1.000 per cent for the gamel failed to get enough runs. One unfortunate from the ranks of the enemy stopped treading water for one awful minute, and he was carried, gurgling, away down stream by the tawny current. . 48 Swimmin How Coach Lyndon turns out such effective swimming teams, no one knows, Apparently most of the team graduates each year, leav- ing a group of bleary-eyed chlorinated strag- glers to carry on the following season. At com- mencement the student body watches the swimming team graduate, and shaking their heads with profound regret, mutter that next year will be different for swimming at Flint- ridge. Yet we always win, and year after year steadily improve, invariably humiliate hugo high schools by vanquishing them, and quite consistently place in the Southern California C.l.F. championships. A coach must have swimming intuition, that is, he must sense what stroke a boy man naturally do, and what he will have trouble with, He must know how much punishment a swimmer will take, before he tires of his sport and loses his enthusiasm. He should be able to obtain the respect and admiration of his pupils. As students, we are qualified to say that Coach Lyndon has been a success with respect to all three qualities. Of the trials and tribulations of the team, little need be said, Gur local mermen always have laughed more and soaked up less water than any other team in the vicinity. They wear beautiful bathing suits which are appealing to the weaker sex, the latter being made still weaker by our glistening handsomes, the team stays reasonably cool on hot days, and is ex- cused from all strenuous exercising which might tighten the precious swimming muscles or aggravate their sensitive dispositions. The amazing thing to ponder is how Coach suc- ceeds in finding a place for everyone. Egbert, Smith, Box, and Melin all found their places in the stiffest competition and although inexpe- rienced they performed remarkably. Either Coach succeeds in inspiring his swimmers, or the gods are with us. Whatever the case may be, you may be sure that Flintridge will do well in any meet. 50 We find Iohnson, Munroe, Gamble, and Charles Markham, graduating as Seniors this year, the latter three having made their letters in swimming for tour successive years. Brady swam the hundred and at times the two- twenty, and was often in the tour and sixfman relay teams, At L. A. High he turned in a re- markable lap in the four-man relay HB" team, gaining a good two yards on his opponents. Pew have a better sense ot humor, a more pleasing build, and a keener competitive spirit than B. I. Munroe performed exceptionally in the fifty free. He swam this event in 25.5 at the Three-way meet with P. I. C. and South Pasadena, and will probably do well in meets to come. Dick usually swam in the fourfman and medley relays and the individual medley aside from the fifty free style. Gamble acted as rather a fill in for last years star, Ted Mun- roe, in that he swam the hundred free style where he made one of the best records in Southern California. l-le also performed brilf liantly in the hundred breast stroke and was at times a member of the two relay teams. Markham, with the exception ot Tom Box, is the most specialized swimmer in the school. For four years Charlie has done the breast stroke. l-lis form is flawless, his modesty un- limited. Certainly he had much to do with the team's general good sense of humor and love of a clean, wholesome sport. Next year our powerful Poundstone and Chiv- alrous Charles will be swimming on college teams and doing well. The futures of B. I. and brown rangy Ridgway have not yet been decided, but certainly they will never forget the familiar damp smells of chlorine, the glassy green water covered with the red corks and long lane lines, the sound of their hearts beatf ing in nervous anticipation of the gun's roar, and Coach's tanned face grinning at his stopf watches. Tom Box, a sophomore, was outstanding in the backstroke. With two more years ahead of him he will certainly be a remarkable swim' mer, providing he can overcome his habit of moaning with a weary smile and saying, Hleez, but l'm shot." Dickie Markham, the big little boy, swam the two-twenty along with Ioe Mc- Lain. Dickie, like his brother Charlie, is fa' mous for his beautiful stroke and keen sense of pace. Another promising sophomore, lohn 5l ipssr-.. -- , ---41. -1 i lorgenson, swam the fifty free and was part of the four-man relay. Big and husky, endowed with fine endurance, he was a valuable asset to the teami George Frazier maintained the diving division, followed up by Brady lohnson. George was quick to learn the fundamentals which Coach offered him, and c e r t a i ri l y showed perseverance in his diligent practicing. Smith, Egbert, lvfelin, and Robbins all swam periodically during the year as did Lyon Lewis will undoubtedly unleash his ability next year in the back stroke and make a name for himself by doing so. Robbins, because of a sickness, was unable to compete as much as the team would have liked. But, he too, has another year of competition, cramps, and colds. Egbert, Smith, and Melin along with twof twenty man Ioe McLain have many laps ahead of them before they reach the end of their races. All four will form a solid foundation for teams of future years. Schiinpff, who was ex' pected to be this years first backstroke, un fortunately did not swim a great deal lf his enthusiasm were as great as his natural wit, he would have been a marvel. This season pool records were greatly bettered during practices. The fifty free style record now stands at 24.l seconds, the hundred breast record unofficially at l:O7.5 minutes. Ted Munroe still holds the twoftwenty and hundred free style records and Doug Cfoodan the hun dred backstroke record. The team again for the second successive time won the three way meet with P. l. C. and South Pasadena which determined the Pasadena champion. The All League meet was won for the fourth succes sive time by Flintridge, the competition there being rather scarce. A l-'lintridge man fGam' blel placed first in the individual medley at the L. A. f-ligh Invitational Meet, and also managed to win the lunior SU-yard free style race, sponsored by the Southern Pacific Ama' teur Athletic Association. After the writing of this article Flintridge will tackle Fullerton Un- ion l-ligh School, and will be represented at the C. l, P. championships during the middle of May. The last event of the year will be the Black Foxe Prep. School lnvitational meet, which ljlintridge should win. 52 Golf Golf, after three years of growing interest, reached a climax this year. Our team was better than average, a fact quite remarkable considering the number interested. This year the team consisted of four returning lettermen-we-Bob Hampton, Frank Pope, Ben Earl, and Earll Weaver- fand new senior, Ken Hunter and foe McLain, a freshman, Bob Hampton is holder of the funior medal re- cord of 67 at Altadena. Though he had the greatest natural ability of any one on the team, he suffered from a lack of practice. In other words, he didn't shoot too many 67's. Prank Pope is an example of a self made golfer. Last summer he spent his time break- ing records on Canadian courses and as a re- sult is called the "Uncrowned Canadian lunior Champion," ln my opinion, there are few young golfers who can match his short game. Ben Earl is just plain lucky. Of him Harry Brooks, the professional at Flintridge, said, "Only you and God can swing like that and hit a ball!l" An advocate of "hit 'em hard and the Devil with where they go" he should be playing football Cmaybe?J. Earll Weaver combined his tennis and golf and was good in both. Ken Hunter, who comes from a long line of champion golfters, played exceptionally well for the time he spent. Ioe Maclain is the most promising of Flintridges future golfers. Matches were played with such well known schools asi South Pasadena, Pasadena I. C., Long Beach Polytechnic, Wilson High of Long Beach, and many others. To win matches against any of these seems extraordinary, but that we did. Although next years chances are not toc optomistic, some unknown golfers may uphold our tradition of topping the best prep teams in our district. 53 Minor Sp0rtS...Tennis The tennis season has been successfully launched, as this article is being written. We have the lineup and the schedule for the season and the outf look is particularly promising. The tennis team, under the able guidance of Mr. Kehler, has been practicing for almost a month. The players are: Ogden Kellogg, "Beetle" Weaver, lohn Eliel, Dick Munroe, Bob Ghrist, Bob Lissner, and Al. Mitchum. This team, com- prising many of the outstanding players of last year and some new members, is thought to compare favorably with any team in the league. The first match of the season was played on April 28 with Harvard Military Academy at Flintridge. lt may be said with no exaggeration that Flintridge trounced Harvard roundly. This season will include matches with Pacific Military Academy, Southern California Military Academy, and a return match with Harvard. Because of the greater turnout this year it has been necessary to use the Brookside courts instead of Og Kelloggs court which has been used for so many years. Og Kellogg and "Beetle" Weaver, champions of last year's league double, play smoothly and expertly together. lohn Eliel and Al Mit- chum, new partners this year in second doubles, are doing well in coordinat- ing their game to its best advantage, lol'1n's cannon ball serve and Al's vollies and overheads should make them winners in the end. Bob Ghrist, our first singles man, plays a fast game quickly taking the net and usually outmaneuvering his opponent. Dick Munroe, who is playing second singles, is very fast and manages to get back almost any shot his opponent makes. Bob Lissner will see service as first substitute. The school championship will be played off for the Partridge Tennis Trophy after the league matches are completed, Kellogg and Ghrist will probably battle it out for first place, but with improvement some of the others may surprise us. 54 it 1 ,, D X 5 . lleicl Ixllcrii anal Beetle Weaver, the powers be- liiiid the scene ol every sporting event. lt is tliie to these two stalwarts that all major inter school faportirta events have been run off fziiiootlily, lfuch credit is duo them lor their ellicient iiianaaeiiient, lt is a tough ond thanlzf lima Joh with litile appreciation troni the grand' stand, but we hereby thank you and thusly txinleavor to shox: our gratitude.

But until a few years ago the mental development concept domineered. Then came the era of Coach Leonard V. Lyndon. With an infinite know- ledge of ways and means for physical advancement, he has made Flintridge renowned for its athletes. Now, one will find, youthful Atlases swinging on parallel bars all the while ad- miring their protruding biceps, or "mountains of muscle" spending hours in the swimming pool trying to break some world record. Kindly look at the pictures at the left. This is typical. Due to excessive exercising on the previous day, Coach often ar- rives at school with that "day after look." But then after a gentle work out of perhaps three hours along with his "chants pionsf' the head man is as good as new.. BUT notice the fifth photograph closely. It's the result of eight long hours of struggling with the less athletically inclined. Mr. Lyndon is the secret idol of many a Flintridge future champion. Yes, athletics and Coach are here to stayl 56 The Spelling Contest This was the only major event which the Seniors lost. Such intellectuals as Chuck Detoy and Lewis Lyon, both Iuniors, gave the Seniors their toughest competition. The words were given by Mr. Dickinson and the spelling was strictly oral. The irony of the situation was that a lowly Freshman placed first and outlasted the entire school. The other representatives of the Freshman class were eliminated tirstg then the Sophomores, the Seniors, and lastly the Iuniors. The Iuniors are still recall- ing this event with delight, for it was the only one in which they beat the Seniors. ik REPRESENTATIVES Senior: Dick Munroe Iames Gamble Ben Earl Iunior: Charles Detoy Lewis Lyon Bill Robbins I Sophs: Al Mitchum Dick Markham Huston Denslow Frosh: Spencer Murray Bob McVay Bob Streander 57 eclamation This year our ability at public speaking has improved remark- ably. Because ot an intensive study ot oratory, several of the students developed an excellent speaking style, The result ot this study has been manifested in such fine presentations as Ogden Kelloggs declarnation of Kipling's "East is East and West is West." Representing the Senior class, Ogden easily won the lnterclass Declamation Contest, George Frazier was runner-up, giving a speech from Shakespeare's 'lAll's Well That Ends Well." He was the Sophornore's choice. Allen Mitchum was a close third with a presentation ot a post-war poem. Extemporaneous Extemporaneous speaking is one of the tinest tests ot ones ability to think clearly and express those thoughts. The sub' ject ot this years lnterclass Extempore event was: Standards of Value. Most speakers talked of the standards ot value in America. Charles Detoy, with his characteristic ease, spoke at length on the subject and took tirst place. He was the choice ot the luniors. Ken Hunter represented the Senior class and placed second. Two promising speakers representing the Freshmen and Sophomores were, respectively, Gilbert Smith and Emerson Egbert. 58 Z Y J re? JI' 'T W N ,v x . mg, 351: ' -ms.. xi Q, Nvf.. -5 .
