To attempt expression of our gratitude, to you, men
of Flintridge, seems very futile. You have upheld
the traditions of your school magnificently. In such
times as this, the English language seems utterly
inadequate. To say that we we are proud of you, is
just a masterpiece of understatement. Probably after
all, simplicity is the conveyor of greatest sincerity.
XX7itf1 this in mind, then, knowing that you will
understand all that it means, we simply say: Thank
you, from the bottom of our hearts, and God bless you.

T0 MR. LOWERY, flue guialilzg fjlllld.
Flintridge is indeed fortunate in having such a generous and capable President
as Mr. Lowery. Being one of the founders of the school, he takes a deep interest
in all school activities, especially in athletics, an enthusiasm which is verified
by the fact that he never misses a basketball game, baseball game, or swimming
meet. His hardy encouragement at the various athletic events has helped many
a Flintridge team to victory. Mr. Lowery, who also teaches biology, is likewise
active in civic affairs when not busy tending to school business.
With the coming of victory last summer, we at Flintridge welcomed back to
our campus from the Army our former Headmaster, Dr. Dickinson. Returning
a few months after the beginning of the semester in September, Dr. Dickinson,
besides capably taking over the many duties of his former post, resumed his
position as instructor of chemistry and geometry. A familiar sight, both in
classroom and as spectator on the athletic field, he is a worthy and efhcient coun-
selor, and is always ready to meet the students' needs. K

Having been relieved of his duties as Head-

to full-time teaching of the romance languages,
and in addition acts as assistant Headmaster.
Along with Miss Hooser, he shares the task of
presenting to the students well-rounded courses
in both French and Spanish. In addition to his
other duties, Mr. Rose takes charge of the daily

as his students know, he is at home when con-

liked by all, Mr. Horning always takes a keen
interest in both the student and his work.
Under the profound mathematical wisdom of
Mr. Carroll Vaniman the minds of tomorrow's
scientists and engineers are being cultivated.
Along with Dr. Dickinson, he has the task of
presenting to the students the essentials of the
various math and science courses, which include
algebra, plane and solid geometry. trigonom-

To MR. SMITH, MR. FASKEN, and MR. JARDINE . . .
Sharing the English Literature department with Mr. I-lorning is Mr. Smith. Noted
for his silent classrooms and very comprehensive tests, he also teaches American
Literature and Classic Mythology. During baseball season Mr. Smith is often seen
coaching the players on the field during ninth period.
A thorough and searching method of teaching world history is presented at Flint-
ridge under the directorship of that learned historian, Mr. Joseph Fasken. From
him, the student learns not a mass of meaningless historical facts, but a unified
coverage of historical material and the influence of this information on the events
Mr. Robert Jardine, instructor of manual arts and mechanical drawing, is noted
for his love of buttermilk and his ability to make all needed repairs in the school.
Also to Mr. Jardine goes the credit for the creation of many projects on the campus.
A willing and reassuring friend to his many students, Mr. Jardine is an invaluable
member of the Flintridge faculty.
and to MISS GUSWEILER, MISS HOOSER, and MRS. CHATTERTON
Miss Louise Gusweiler, head of the junior Division, is the person responsible for
the fine library which we have at Flintridge. Through her accuracy in handling
the library funds and in keeping track of the many books, the library has become
a constant source of help to the students, in which one is almost sure to lind desired
material, whatever it may be.
On the shoulders of Mrs. Chatterton rests the development of the Primary School.
A young, lively person herself, she is idolized by the many youngsters over whom
she keeps constant vigil.
When Miss I-looser walks onto the Flintridge campus, one invariably finds her
surrounded by her many pupils. This fact exemplifies why she is so popular with
the grade-school youngsters. Besides teaching in the Grammar School, Miss Hooser
presides over one half of the French and Spanish classes.
. . . and I0 MESSERS LYNDON, WOOD . . .
Again, as in past years, the task of developing a crack Flintridge swimming team has
gone to that ever-popular faculty member, "Coachl' Lyndon. Though much of his time
is taken up with instruction at the Pasadena Athletic Club, Mr. Lyndon still finds time
to develop his ardent Flintridge athletes. Because of his genuine and unaffected attitude
toward the students, an important factor in the producing of championship teams, he
has long since become a cherished tradition at Flintridge.
Serving as assistant Physical Director this year is that ver-
satile and likeable newcomer to Flintridge, Mr. Wood,
whose ability in the various sports activities is envied by all
the students, Through his experience as a softball player,

DANIEL PAYNE, Prexy . . .
Danny, Senior president, baseball pitcher, gruesome guard of the basketball Eve,
and accomplished master of the short storm, is best known around the campus as
the proud producer of clever Witticisms and risque puns. His notorious title of
"Dan The Hipper" has been a solemn warning to all athletic competitors, and when
unheeded, has resulted in various injuries. But wait, please don't think of him
exclusively as the jovial, destructive individual that he is, for he has a more
sensitive and cultured side. To this part of him could be attributed his cheerful
poetic genius and spirited rendition of "Mac Mamora's Band"-both good reasons
Why Dan Payne is synonymous with darn Jzvell.
RICHARD HUGHES . .
Dick is an all-around good man. In the scholastic, athletic, and civic life of
Flintridge, he has been a respected leader. He has gained high marks in his studies,
and has rightfully shared a good part of the glory of the swimming, basketball,
and baseball teams. Dick's personality, which he has projected onto the school
pattern, makes him a desired member of any group. Always a participant in argu-
ments, Richard comes forth with strikingly clear and original thinking. He'll make
a keen and busy doctor, but here's L1 prediction: he'll always Find a little time for
his I-ligh Sierras.
WARREN CUTTING . .
The presidency of the student body is a fitting climax for Warren's four years at
Flintridge. He is always eager to assume responsibility and is capable of bearing
that responsibility with exceptional good sense. "Bernie" has left behind him a
glittering path of "A" grades and an outstanding record as a member of the swim-
ming team, but it will be more for his good-natured leadership and friendly
attitude that he will be remembered by those of us who have known and worked
with him at Flintridge.
Pope once said, "I lisped in numbers, for the numbers came." If Turner said that
today, no one would dispute that fact, for his eloquence and fluency of speech
which further augment his intense observations of world affairs and life in general
are as sudden and unexpected as orchids in a briar patch. Besides his preaching
and athletic achievements, he often indulges in treating the school to booming
excerpts from operatic scores as styled only by Turner Magnifico. In fact, on a
clear day the whole valley is treated. His robust, aristocratic figure is a colorful
sight around the campus, and it usually signifies that contentment and friendliness
HOWARD HASTINGS . . .
A happy combination of the serious and the humorous has made Howard a wel-
come and beneficial member of student life at Flintridge. His witty sarcasmshave
enlivened many of the tedious hours of study, and his serious concentration has
gained for him many friends and admirers. Howard has worked for and gotten
good grades, and has also found time to be center on the "A" basketball squad
and first-baseman on the varsity baseball team. It looks like a bright future,
"Howie"g good luck!
To attempt a description of Whitey is an arduous task, for he is truly the composite
Senior. Heeling a reach in a gale, bringing home a cup from Black Foxe, Hitting
across a snowy slope, and even in isolated moments participating in scholarship
are all traits that have marked the enviable course of this infectious wit. "Laugh
and the world laughs with you" might be called the precept which has made
Whitey Flintridge's own lovable, laughable son. If Flintridge's sons are men of
purpose and stability, profound athletes and interpreters of living, all characterized
by the clashing eloquence of a cavalier, then Whitey fills his niche perhaps better
than anyone else in Flintridge's family.

RALPH SKILLEN . .
Behold, ye men of Flintridgeg perfection passes our gates but once! Who? Student
and athlete compounded into one. C. S. F. Skillen has slipped through the com-
paratively complicated channels with the ease to be seen only in his enviable back-
stroke. With a nimble mind, Ralph has strolled from Flintridge with her highest
scholastic honors. He is truly a man of thought qualified to tackle a situation in
one hand, write its solution with the other, and tell a good joke at the same time.
An irresistible personality, an easy-going perspective, an essential stability, and a
keen understanding of life and the values of life are all traits that give Ralph
perhaps the most enviable position in Flintridge's hall of fame.
Art, the poor man's joe Miller, though comparatively a newcomer to Flintridge,
still shows indications of being a carefree fellow-signs which, I am told, are
supposed to disappear as one becomes a Senior. Besides being an accomplished
swimmer, he does nice work on the diamond. His laugh is like Turner's voice
in legendary love, and usually heralds the extremes of high-school wit and humor.
But Art is not always engaged in ribald comedy, for scholastic efforts show con-
scientious improvement. Like all our futures, his is uncertain, but one can be sure
that he will set about it in his usual jovial, self-reliant manner.
RICHARD CRANDALL . .
A great man once said, "The things we know are neither rich nor rare, but I
wonder how the divil they got there." He must have been looking toward Dick
as a model when making such an observationg for the latter is very quiet and re-
served most of the time, but when he does speak, the inspiration is momentous.
Scholastically, he does steady workg athletically, he excells in pitching, guarding,
and back-stroking. His staid cynicism is a legend at Flintridge, which adds comical
Color rather than condemnation to this well-rounded and self-reliant fellow.
PETER REDWIN E.
Pete, better known as "The Judge", is the unofficial authority on all legal matters
that arise among the students. You'll often hear some one ask if such and such
is within the law. The invariable answer is, "How should I know? Ask the Judge."
Pete, who can always be found basking in the sun during the noon hour, is only too
patient in weighing the case at hand. He is of the old school, likes hunting, hates
formality involving discomfort, and has the same feeling towards dry books, likes
a good story, spiced tea, mathematics, and medicine. How can you help liking and
admiring the venerable judge?
EDWARD TAYLOR . .
Coming from the slopes of the Sierras, Eddie possesses qualities that have made
him a friend to all, students and faculty alike. Dropping from the swift adventures
of the North to the slower current of endless studies, he is to be complimented on
his successes. He is a comfortable chap to have in any class, a helper behind many
scenes, and a conveyer of a smile capable of soothing the most tired soul. This
naive son of Izaak Walton has brought to Flintridge the qualities of the pathfinder:
truth, helpfulness, and generosity.
and CLARENCE WHITE.
Because of his reserved personality, Bud is one of those types of people whom you
take for granted when around, but who are always missed when absent. Often
being the subject of public speculation, he takes things as they come with the in-
difference of an understanding person, His scholastic work is industrious and
complex, for Bucl insists on carrying five subjects, a task made almost insufferable
around Flintridge. Through it all, however, this calm and genial person pursues
his way to a successful end.

Don Payne wills his rapier-like wit along with his sarcasm and strange

Next year's swimming team will receive the benefits of Dwight Phillips'

Oliver Wendell Holmes once wrote, The best part of our knowledge is that which
teaches us where knowledge leaves off and ignorance begins." Unlike preceding Junior
classes, the members of the class of '47 at least admit that they know little if anything.
This attitude really is a pleasant change from that unbounded knowledge held by the
juniors of the past.
Nonetheless the junior class has other criterions by which it has gained glittering dis-
tinction. The athletic field is inundated by outstanding juniors, crowding all other
classes into ignoble submission. Apart from the juniors' alleged romantic achievements,
it can be said without fear of contradiction that by far the brightest star in the yearly
social firmament was the Christmas dance, put on by the ever-industrious juniors.
In the years to come, the gap left by the junior class of '46 will not easily be filled. In
contrast to this is the ease with which the juniors slipped into the gap left by the Junior
class of '45.

worlds. An event of which the Freshman are proud is the winning of the high-school
spelling bee. This year, as in previous years, the Freshmen have been greatly aided in
their academic achievements by the efforts of our ever-helping faculty. There are several
good swimmers in the Freshman class who will help the school swimming team during

This year, the grade school was somewhat reorganized. When Mrs. Chatterton's room
was combined with the old study hall to form the present spacious room, the fourth and
fifth grades moved into a room in the main building, facing the garden.: Miss Gusweiler,
in turn, was given the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Although she does not teach
everything to these classes, Miss Gusweiler practically controls their work. The excep-
tions to her rule are: Mr. Faskin, who, with his grand sense of humor, teaches the eighth
grade history, Mr. Jardine, who, unlike last year, teaches the sixth and seventh grades
in mathematics, and last, but not by any means least to her spelling students, Miss Hooser.
It would be very inappropriate at this time to omit mention of Mr. Jardine and his
nerve-racking but persistent effort to teach shop to those who don't know what a ham-
mer is. As if this werer1't bad enough, the sixth grade also takes shop this year.

Flintridge has been fortunate. this year in hav-

fill the important office of Student Body Presi-

necessary for successful leadership in the many
activities which he has headed. He has won
the regard and affection of all those who have
associated with him during the year.
For the second consecutive year Ralph
Skillen has served in the capacity of Com-

this would be a difficult job, since the
complaints of the students about the in-

if you are a jack-of-all-trades, you are a

When the task of selecting someone to
direct the publication of The Log was
put before the student body, jim was the
wise choice. His previous service on other

has well qualified this energetic fellow
for the difficult job he has accomplished.
Besides his journalistic endeavors jim has
consistently done exceptional work in aid-
ing his fellow Council members in their
task of disciplining the school. His is

To do any job well, one must know a lot
about the position that he is called upon
to fill. For this reason, Richard Hughes
is a natural for the office of Commissioner
of Athletics. During his four years at
Flintridge he has served as an outstand-
ing member of the basketball, swimming,
and baseball teams. Thus, as can plainly
be seen, Dick could not help being a suc-
cessful member of athletics.

COMMISSIONER OF PUBLICATIONS
jim Turner, untiring Commissioner of Pub-
lications, has proved himself invaluable on
the staff. Flintridge was indeed fortunate in
having, as its Annual head, a person as
dependable and trustworthy as Jim. Owing
to his undoubted ability as an executive, Jim
and his able staff have met the deadline for
the publication of the Annual. In view of
the varied complications which accompany
the publication, this feat is indeed a great one.

The production of the 1946 Log has been a combination of
fun and cooperation. It can truly be said that it would be
hard to Hnd a more willing staff any place. However, all
has not gone smoothly at times. More than once Editor
Turner has been seen in the act of preparing to commit
manslaughter upon some offending staff member, but these
episodes have been of brief duration.
To jim Turner, ably assisted by the Associate Editor, Pete
Hales, have gone the responsibilities of overseeing and
editing the annual. What with individual pictures, dead-
lines to meet, and innumerable other details, the task has
not been small, but the staff members have come forth with
a noble job.
Howard Hastings, the versatile Art Editor, deserves bou-
quets galore because of the splendid job that he has per-
formed in the held of both art and writing.
Warren Cutting and the remainder of the staff helped to
make the completeness of the annual possible by their
excellent work on advertising.
Space prevents the mentioning of all those who have
helped, but the staff as well as the entire student body
appreciates their efforts.

The Christmas holidays werehighlighted by the
annual Prep Dance, this year sponsored by the junior
class. The formal crowd danced to the music of a
seven-piece orchestra which furnished some popular
arrangements. The many decorations included a ten-
foot Christmas tree, holly wreaths, present-lilled
stockings, and colorful candles. Refreshments were
served during the middle of the evening, which was
climaxed by the presence of a very real-life Santa,
complete with presents and popcorn balls. The
junior class was to be commended, for the dance was

again showed their undeniable perseverance in climaxing the drive by bringing

basis of each book's value to the school library, the
Junior class achieved 825 points.

Cn the 28th of February, the Upper School engaged
in an unusual activity-a spelling bee. Four members
from each of the classes were chosen to hold up their
ends. The Juniors and Seniors completely lost face
before the Freshmen and Sophomores who went down
with six and three points respectively.
The second dance of the year took place at Anoakia
School for Girls on November 17. The upperclass-
men of Flintridge, along with a few Webb students,
danced to the music of a band secured for the
occasion. Varied refreshments were served by the

sandwiches and soft drinks were served later in the evening. Judging from the
success of the first party, the prospects for the remaining events were something
to look forward to.

BAS KE TBALL
The beginning of basketball season was a bit discouraging this year, with schools such as
Burbank, Pasadena C., and Verdugo snowing under the gallant Flintridge five with
leads of 20 to 25 points. The team would perform wonders at the start, but towards the
end of a game they would begin to tire out, there being only 1 or 2 substitutes. However,
their first games were all practice games with schools way out of our league in size, so
that we still held hopes of making a better showing in our own class.
The first league game was with Southern California Military Academy, and, as usual, it
turned out to be one of the hardest-fought games of the season. The score at the half
was 11 to 9, our favor, and in the second half we kept our lead to make the final score
21 to 16, our favor. The Dewey High School team edged our boys out of a victory by
5 points, and then we had to bow before the Harvard team to lose an exciting game by 9
points. After this, things began to roll again, and we flattened out Spanish American
with a 40 to 18 victory. The team went on to overcome S. C. M. A. again, 36 to 30, and
gain revenge on Dewey by defeating them 17 to 12. We lost our chance for the title
by losing a crucial game to Harvard by 23 points. This put us back in third place, where
we ended the season.
The players included: Dick Huges, Right Forward, Bob jackson, Left Forward, Howard
Hastings, Center, George Petrie, Right Guard, Dan Payne, Left Guard, Lew Akerman,
Right Forward, Les Basich, Right Forward, Don Kenmonth, Left Guard, Dick Crandall,
Right Guard, Ken Norris, Left Forward, John Slaught, Right Forward, john Duckett,
Center, John Hecht, Right Forward.
The baseball season this year started out on a rather exciting note. After about a month's
practice, the team went to Brookside Park to play Spanish American Institute. The boys
knew they were going to have a tough time of it the minute they saw the S. A. I. pitcher
warming up. He had a very fast and consistent pitch. As we expected, the game turned
out to be hard-fought and close, with S. A. I. coming out on top with a 2 to 1 victory.
A few disastrous errors showed that our boys were a little green, but on the whole they
looked decidedly promising.
Our next game was with Harvard, and, as usual, it was a morale buster. The Harvard
team romped over us and left us on the short end of a 9 to 2 score. However, in the
Black-Foxe game that followed, we won an 8 to 7 victory, With this encouraging show-
ing and the able leadership of coach Wood, the team goes on to an exciting, if not
The line-up, as it stands when we go to press, is as follows: Pitchers, Mansfield Smith,
Dan Payne, Dick Crandall, Francis Cobb, Catcher, Dick Hughes, First Base, Howard
Hastings, Second Base, Bill Hoop, Short Stop, Wally Bair, Fred Kresserg Third Base,
George Petrie, Fielders, R. Hickie, Turner, Hecht, E. Taylor, K. Nicol.
The swimming schedule has been successfully held up by Il talented group of boys this
year. The defeats they have suffered have been partly due to sickness and partly due to
the overwhelming size of the schools, like Whittier, that they were swimming against.
The Hrst trial was the Mid-winter Relay Championship, held at Whittier. Although
Flintridge was competing with fifteen other schools, all of which had at least 700 or
800 boys in their student bodies, our "A" team managed to come out in 4th place and
our "C" team lost first place to Beverly Hills by the narrow margin of two points.
Our first dual meet was with the strong Whittier team at
their pool. Wfhittier won both "A" and "B" honors but
our mighty, little men of the "CH team took first place.
In the "A" division, Slaught took first place in diving, to
continue his perfect record, while Cutting took a hrst and
second, Skillen a second, and Kingsley, Phillips and Ken-
month took thirds in their events. Our "A"s won the four-
In the two Santa Ana dual meets, Flintridge won in both
"A" and "C" divisions, but lost the "B" division. The
first meet with our old rival, Black-Foxe, was a smashing
victory for us. We defeated their "A"s by the score of
54 to 21 and their "Bus, 36 to 12.
The boys still have to face a dual meet with Pasadena
junior College, besides the League Championship, the
Southern California Championship and the Black-Foxe
Invitational meets. With Bob jackson back and sickness
out of the way, we should win these.
