The schooll was the dream and vision ot two
men. Same day they hoped that what is hap-
pening today would happen.
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
inthe t of Flintridge. Q is almost
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

Broadness and fairness of mind, a true sense
of humor, the rarest, are of the finest qualities
of character. 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.

It is with sincerest gratitude we bid farewell to Flintridge. 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.
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

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

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.

properly called the Munroe Era 'something akin to ado

realities ot a dilterent lite and survived.

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. But, instead, we see him assume, in the lace of his
many talents, the mantle ol Lothario,

The Class of '41 takes with it many fair memories of Flintridge
days gone by. ln return we feel obliged to leave something for
those left behind to think about and cherish. 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

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
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.
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
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.

A freshman, as a rule, in the opinion of the freshman, is Gods happy-ga
lucky gift ot the poor suffering heathen on the earth. As he enters the fresh'
man class he realizes that he has now become "one of the fellows". But con-
trary to the ordinary, this year our fledglings are a meek and gentle lot,
Though small in number, the class speaks well for itself in the school events.
McLain swims a nice 220 and plays on the golf team. Smith played on the
basketball and baseball teams and did some swimming. Murray holds up his
end of the scholastic duties along with the other two. Bob Streander went
East at mid year and was doing well to that point, So, even though the fresh-
man class is notoriously beaten by the upper classes, ours was able to muster
sufficient strength to hold its own in school activities.

Demanding their right to a place in the sun, the grade school has made their

scholars have rather amazed the staid members of the senior school. Coopera-

However, the upper classes have come to admire the irrepressables tor their

The Iunior Department of Flintridge has had an interesting and enjoyable
year. Aside from their regular scholastic competitions, they have had several
"out ot the classroom" activities. Ot these, the one which impressed them

Mission. At the latter Ierry Fainer was almost lost among the pigeons.
Another trip, this time to the lessup Dairies, is planned tor early May.
lohn Ridland and lerry Fainer welcomed Black-Foxe in the dual meet by

Grade School Spelling Bee and our other member, David Van Name, is

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.

As is always the case, some one person is alloted the dirty work. 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

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,
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
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
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.
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
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.

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.
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
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
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.
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
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
ipssr-.. -- , ---41. -1
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.
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
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.
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
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
it 1 ,,

The perfect combination of mental and physical education
has always been sought at Flintridge. 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
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
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.
Senior: Dick Munroe
Iunior: Charles Detoy
Sophs: Al Mitchum

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
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.
