We sincerely hope that the faculty will never be changed by the new school,
either in principle or in personnel. Over the years the Flintridge faculty has done
a splendid job. The very proof of this is the huge percentage ot our students who
have succeeded in college. The corner-stone ot the tacultys success is its intormf
ality. Always the faculty has been close to the students, a part ot the class.

This comradeship allows the student to enioy learning, we hope that it will never
be changed by new buildings. We students are grateful to the faculty. The teach-
ers have taught us much and given us good memories to carry with us. We shall
be increasingly grateful as we learn more. There will be other faculties, but none
such as this. We give our thanks,
The Student Council consists ot tive students who
represent the student body and endeavor to
maintain order, The Student Council is a servant
to the students, but also it is the Councils iob

DICK BAIRD TOM BERNE WALLY DEDRICK

The responsibilities of the Council are management of school library and store
class competition school dances athletic affairs assemblies punishment tor
those requiring it and creation of the Log you are now reading
This year your Student Council has included. Dick Baird, Commissioner General,
whose job it has been to run morning assemblies and keep the Council working
hard, Tom Berne, Commissioner of Academics, who also kept track ofthe demerit
Dick Riddell, Commissioner ot Finance, who has been in charge at the school
dances, Wally Dedrick, Commissioner of Athletics, who conducted the class com-
petitions, and .lim Lucas, Commissioner ot Publications, who edited the Log.
The attitude of the Student Council this year has been one ot sincere appreciation
to the Student Body tor their wonderful cooperation. Each student has contribu-
ted to make this the great year it has been. A lot has been accomplished over the
past short months: old Senior privileges have been restored.
DICK RIDDELL JIM LUCAS In session
Commissioner ot Finance Commissioner ot Publications
A new friendship between Freshmen and Seniors has been established, champion-
ships in sports were attained, and friendship and harmony prevailed among all
The Council enjoyed working with the students this past year and thanks them
for making possible the harmonious relationship. The Council realizes that the
school belongs to the students and that its management remains in their hands as
long as reasonable regularity is maintained. As the year nears its end, the Council
departs with wishes of good luck to all and with the conviction that the new
Student Council will carry the ball even farther than its predecessors attempted.

ln spite of several semesters ot attending school
in the East, l-larl has retained his Westernstype
sociability and good nature. He loves the earth
of vast ranches far from urban spots, and he
lives and breathes the grand game ot baseball.
Whatever he says is as honest and as to the
point as Will Rogers' best observations, and we
all listen with the sarne respect,
DON LAI DLAVV
For sheer ebullience and intectious exhuberance
Don has no peers, ln tact, vvhether the situation
be a breeze session in the dorin, a quiet evening
study hall, or a class that is threatened with
stagnation, Don will invariably relieve the ennui
with an incomparable pun. As president ot the
Senior class, he has displayed a drive and an
energy that have made all its activities not only
successful but also unique.
In his perfect balance between boulevardier
savior-faire and rive-gauche culture, in his pro-
found comprehension of the highest-caste Brah-
min philosophy that the essence of time is not
to hurry, and in his discerning choice of theatre
entertainment, Mike is a wonderful complement
to an otherwise strictly American Senior class.
Consider also the labels in his tweeds and his
flawless ability to illustrate Morner-written epics
and English lectures, and the sketch is complete.
The greatest athlete Flintridge ever produced,
Stan possesses nevertheless a wonderful hu-
mility, His consistent ability to break all athletic
records at Prep, even when they are his own,
has never shaken his imperturbable modesty,
Nor are his interests confined to the four sports
in which he is peerless: he seldom finds it neces-
sary to leave his own library for material to do
term papers, and his collection of Immortal Per-
formances marks him as a connoisseur of fine
The only boy since Jon Mathews to brave the
rigors of Latin IV, David is eclectic in his appreci-
ations. His scholarship is evidenced by his pur-
suit ot the classics, the spiritual inspiration he
derives from music is evidenced by his daily
devotion to the noon broadcasts of negro spirit-
uals, and his creativeness is evidenced by his
proficiency in trombone versions of Dixieland.
Perhaps the schools only accomplished political
orator, Pete has regularly scored victories at
lunch table discussions and class meetings by
tatiguing the opposition into acquiescence. Com-
ing from Texas, "the Mop" has nevertheless con-
vinced us that secession is not necessary. His
frenzied study habits are the admiration ot the
Senior class, his good nature is untlagging, and
he would rather be found in the rustic outdoors,
hunting or fishing, than at the swankest party.
Our venerable Commissioner General, who keeps
The STudenT Council on iTs Toes, Dick is well
known aT Prep for his high-powered assembly
speeches, for his masTery of ThaT old demerif
system, and for a fabulous moTor boaT armada
aT Lake Arrowhead. Dick's genial personaliTy has
been invaluable in his sincere aTTempTs To recon-
cile The student-adminisTraTion poinTs of view.
The laTesT addiTion To The Senior Class, Bud, in
his reTurn To Prep, was Typical of mosT FlinTridge
expaTriaTes, They always come back. He im-
mediaTely regained his posiTion in The sporTs
niche left yacanr by his deparTure in The middle
of lasf year. And wiTh his boardingede-parTmenT
rendiTion of "Oh Happy Day," compleTe wiTh
Ten-gallon haT, he has become a celebrity as
The campus exponenT of WesTern music.
The gentleman who kicked the years longest
field goal in U.S. six-man football also has other
qualifications to be noted in Preps Who's Who
of '53: the cor that shows off to best advantage
the value of customizing, Brutus, the dog that
has appeared in more English themes and camp-
us conversations than any other canine, and a
stock of ballads that would land him a con-
tract at the Turnabout.
John knows howto keep his own counsel better
than anyone in the Senior class With ease and
polish he successfully resists the subtlest attempts
to learn the details of his private life He is also
respected for his Swiftian satire, his fastidious
taste in fine writing, and ofcourse for his un-
bounded hatred of the faculty, who accept the
caustic wit and brilliance of his jabs in the same
good humor that he gives them.
Whenever a cool and discerning mind is needed,
you should look for Jared. Frank to the last de-
gree, he may be depended upon for a candid
and valid characterization of the most carefully
guarded personalities. Because of his consistent
silence about himself few know that he could
render whole arias from Gilbert and Sullivan,
diagnose any mechanical detect, and come to
the rescue ot a floundering math class.
Mark is a wonderful example at the old saying
that still water runs deep, Sparing in the ex-
pression ot his considered judgments, he is cere
tain to couch them in perfect wit and Gallic
drolerie, when the toibles ot humankind pro-
voke his irony, ln perfect key with the quality
which one instinctively associates with Mark
are the conservatism of his car and his invariable
Scotch cashmeres in the riches ol subdued tones,
Tenacious, indifferent to calculated exacerbation,
and successful: all are phrases describing Jim,
whether his pursuits be discovering a faculty
member s outside income, procuring a house at
Balboa, permanent membership in CSF., pub-
lishing a Log of unique beauty and quality, or
wanton destruction of proletarian traditions and
preiudices. invariably sophisticated in critical
iudgments, he despises Tschaikowsky, Grieg, and
Liszt and makes you feel like a Philistine if you
Marks discriminating taste fiom over-plaids in
Argyles to the music of Shostakovich renders him
little less than an oracle as an arbiter of cor-
rectness. Nietzschean in philosophy, Mark com-
mands respect for his iudgments of human val-
ues all the way from participants in the Olympics
at Helsinki to the foibles of his daily compan-
ions in class, He is infallible in his recognition
of quality and respects it wherever he finds it.
The boy who long since forgot more than Dale
Carnegie ever wrote, Dick can accomplish more,
get by with more, and influence more people by
innate charm than anyone we know. A leader ot
Preps social circles, he is noted equally for his
party wit and his talent on a pair ot skis. In mat-
ters of taste he is respected tor his iudgments
from architecture to decorum. Forever on hand
with a well-placed remark, Dick always suc-
ceeds in smothering the opposition with a stir-
ring "How 'bout that?"
When a serious problem is to be solved, the
quietly torcetul iudgment ot Tom is almost cer-
tain to be the decisive tactor in the solution, l-le
has won universal respect tor the sterling quali-
ties ot his character: his iudiciousness, his equit-
able handling ot extra-curricular activities, and
his ability in sports. Outside school, Toms pas-
sion is radio, a tact which is manifest by the
height of his car aerial and his call number
In spite of the deep seriousness ot purpose in
many of his activities, Galen is best known for
his ebullient ioviality. lt is practically impossible
to dampen his spirits, and his contagious humor
never fails to brighten the dullest moments in
class. The best indication of his deep-seated
sense of propriety is the invariably immaculate
state of his car and his own impeccable groom-
Maitlands insatiable penchant for pseudo-scienf
titic tiction entitles him to be called the H. G,
Wells of La Canada Valley. When read, his Eng-
lish themes have generally thrown the class into
varying stages ot something between mental
disorder and acute intellectual stimulation. ln
his resolve to rid us ot such bourgeois tetishes as
Santa Claus, Maitlancls iconoclasm is matched
only by the brittle wit ot his mordant repartee.
Why must such gifts be consigned to the lab of
a nuclear physicist?
Ai ts among those whose graduatson will leave

From there his explosive driver, Mark Bacon, would drive 'tim through more rural areas where,
stopping at a small town, he would be sincerely greeted by Mayor Hardyman. Escorted through
the rustic suburbs, he would find proud Wally Dedrick and his wife, the result of a long, en-
joyable, but discriminating search. Looking around the house, in the process of its annual cleaning
by the hired man, Phelps, he would come upon the renowned surrealist artiste, Marc Neumann,
and his Adonis-like model, Richard Bairde. When our traveler arrived in New York, his conscience
would be stirred by seeing the Rev. Young reform a very wayward femme. From the bar's
back room the brassy' trombone of Dave Gast would be emanating its New Orleans iazz. Cross-
ing to England, the traveler's country impressions would be outlined by the beautiful sequence
of two Sadlers Wells aspirants, Peter Ilyich Cooli and Donn Laidlav, Southward, the picturesque
Basque country would inevitably show the poverty stricken guitar player, Michele Fee, earning
his few centimes in front of the Cl1UI'Ch dOOl'. Every Once in Q While he would be forced to mgve
to make way for the local priest, Father Hue-Pergardt. Returning tothe U.S., the bus would be
incapacitated despite the technical effOrTS of mC1ster mechanic Jim Lucas. Thus our traveler, forced
to purchase a Chevrolet from an enthusiastic salesman, Richard Riddell, would spend his last
days visiting UC., where he WOUld be met by ts dean, John Clark, Ph.D. and shown through
The Complex l0b5 bY The eminem Dr, HOVYWGV Reed. Then, returning to his villa, our traveler
would continue to live off his heirloom stocks.

This year the Sophomore class, under the guidance of Mr. Vaniman as cla'ss ad-
viser, has striven to live up to all its last year's expectations. It has made an ex-
cellent showing in all its athletic activities, especially in football and basket-
ball. This will aid our opportunities for championship teams in the future. Aside
from athletics, the Sophomores are also holding their own in their scholastic ac'
tivities. There are a number ot Sophomores in the Honor Society this year, and we
hope to continue this in the following two years. The Sophomore class has also
taken part in all the Flintridge dances and other social affairs, of which their Black
and White spring dance was an outstanding example not only of artistic success
and merit, but also of attendance and fun.

Under the competent guidance ot Beniy Jackson, class president, the conglomer-
ation of Freshmen has made successful strides in the fields ot sports, academics,
and social life. Sportswise, the Freshmen avenged a 6 to O tootball upset to Poly
with two basketball victories over them, trounced Mt. Lowe, and placed three
Freshmen on the "B" baskeball team. An athletic class, the Freshmen should go
places in all sports phases.
With five Freshmen in the Honor Society, the class has a high academic average.
Entering actively into social lite, the Freshmen sponsored several auspicious pri-
vate class parties, and the first school dance, the Hallovveen party, which was
a tremendous success, thanks in large part to Mr. Acosta, class adviser.

Only once before, in the history ot Flintridge, has
this double award been made. In 1943, Yogi"
Jorgensen won both the All-Around Champion'
ship and the Sportsmanship Award.
Exactly a decade later, another outstanding
Flintridge athlete and citizen achieved the same
honors. Stan typifies all tor which his school
stands. He possesses the three qualities that
mark the high caliber man, i,e. ability, character
and humility. He has won high honors in 4 sports'

No less important than the affairs ot the high school in the Flintridge year, are
the activities of the grade school. The Flintridge Grade school is composed ofthe
fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. It is separate from the high school and
is under the direction of Miss Gusweiler. This year the Grade School elected Bill
Warnock as their president, Mike Roark, vice-president, and David Stuerwald,
There has also been great rivalry this year to obtain the precious ditch day. Thus
far the eighth grade is leading with the others close behind. The contest is iudged
according to the monthly spelling bees, grade averages, and number ot demerits
issued, Brutsche has won the spelling bee twice, and Anderson, Ferrer, and
Bannon have each been victorious once.
The Grade School has its own publications which are completely independent of
the high school publications. The Prep Squeak is their biernonthly periodical, and
The Twig is their annual, both of which, it must be recognized, run The Highlander
and The log worthy competition in liveliness of interest, in finesse of publication,
and in quality of student participation.

The Grade School also carries on various athletic contests. They trounced Chandler
in their only football game. In basketball they beat Southwestern but were de-
feated by Poly and Harvard. At the time of going to press, they have had but
one swimming meet which was unsuccessful but which will be more than
During the student government day, which was resumed this year, the grade
school students behaved themselves admirably much to the pleasure of all con-
cerned. They carried on their classes in a most business like manner, realizing that
it was intended to be a day of work as much as any other school day.
The noon periods of the lower school have been well-used in all forms of recre-
ation. Even though the sometimes raucous sound of their ioyful voices may drive
certain teachers to the point of near-iibbering idocy, we still inwardly appreciate
and look back fondly on those unburdened and carefree childhood days. Under
the tolerant guidance of Mrs. Campbell and Miss Gusweiler the expressions of
earliest youth have not been repressed to any great degree of regimentation. We
are glad that this will always remain so.

Because of his versatility and skill in all athletic
events, John H, Coombes wins the Junior All-
around Athletic Championship for l952f53. John
has distinguished himself in touch-tootball, bas-

this is the logical choice. John typities all that the

When we consider the first four swimming meets that have been held before the
Logs publication, Prep is really showing its steam. The first meet ended in a
landslide, with Muir the underdogs by a score of 50-25. A week later the Prep
aqua-team hopped into their convertibles and headed for Chadwick, only to
find the competition fairly weak. The Prepsters managed to win every event
except diving, in which Flintridge had no entries. The final score was Flint-
ridge: 52, Chadwick: 9. The first home meet was with P. C , C., who came
over to offer us quite effective competition. Stan Morner was able to win the TOO-
yard free, but Tom Berne was unsuccessful in keeping up with the freeestyling
ace from P. C. C. Bill Lewis managed to put on a fine showing in the TOO-yard
free style, and he was awarded first place for his skill, With the score in a waver-
ing state, Dick Riddell came through and won the diving, insuring victory for
Flintridge. The many teams still confronting our well-trained swimmers will, we
hope, be favorably overcome.

UF CAMPUS LIFE

cg Y . ,si XX- XX
The dormitory is one department of which Flintridge can be iustly
proud. Throughout the last decade, its facilities have improved
steadily, with the addition of new beds, furniture, and heating
units. To its eighteen occupants the dorm is iust as much like
home as their own back yard.
There are many reasons for the dorm's popularity. Boarders are
free to go home or elsewhere on weekends. A television set in
the living room provides entertainment for the bored few. Tasty
snacks are served after evening study hall, and meals are con-
sistently delicious due to our chef supreme, Cliff Buffington.
Under the guidance of housemaster Don Hunnell, the boys learn
cooperation and develop other traits necessary in later life. If
for no other reason than that it teaches one to get along with
other people, the dorm is a very worthwhile unit.

THE CLASSES IN CUMPETITIUN
One of the foremost features of Prep is its system of class competition. ln this
contest every phase of campus life is considered, and points are awarded to
each class according to its comparative skills with the other grades. It is confined
to the high school and has proved to be an effective instigatoi' in accomplishing
otherwise disregarded tasks. An example of this would be the photo contest,
which without class competition would have never even existed. Another example
is the book drive, certainly an event which would ordinarily attract the atten-
tion of only a few.
This year a new handling was given to the essay contest, which in past years
has slowly been diminishing in entries. To remedy this, all the students were re-
quired to write an essay which would figure on their English averages. Thus many
more and superior efforts were turned in. Although there was a great deal of con-
troversy over this new policy, the results have settled the question.

HUNUR SUCIE TY
For those who have received no grade lower than a "B" the privilege of being a
member of the honor society is reserved. Always a coveted distinction, this goal
has been achieved in recent years by increasing numbers of students, in spite ot
the rigid requirements. Twice each year, members of the honor society go on
a "ditch day" to some such destination as the beach, the Times Building in Los
Angeles, or one of various industrial plants. Disregarding hard work, a boy finds
it quite enjoyable to be in the honor society.

Into its third year of publication marched the Flintridge Highlander under the
editorship of Gary Smart, whose scintillating personality has kept the campus
periodical on the road to success. The introduction ot the "Social Slander" and
"Letters to the Editor" columns proved to be a good idea until the columnists
came a two-way squelch, holding no
general interest. In all other respects the paper has been a publication worthy of
the name Highlander, with accurate sports writings and complete coverage of

The Flintridge yearbook, The Log, was launched through the efforts of Jim Lucas,
Commissioner of Publications. The staff of the Log with faculty advice from Mr.
Horning has turned out a superior yearbook, containing revivals of some features
of years before such as the class prophecy. With the financial management of
Jared Patterson The Log has been kept from requiring large subsidies from Mr.
McKee. Candid shots were gathered by means of the photo contest and via the
lens of the very fine camera of Richard Kaplan. The writing was supervised by Mr.
Horning so that this yearbook follows the intended functions of the English lan-
The Log has suffered all the little setbacks to be expected during the course of the
planning of a masterpiece. However, when true genius is combined with hard
work, as it has been this year with the Log staff, success is inevitable. This year's
Log has been dedicated to Flintridge's future in hopes that when the Log staff
returns some day, an entirely revised campus will meet their eyes. Thus they
would be able to say that their contribution might have aided in achieving this

Someday-a day that we all hope may come soon-there will be a new Prep.
lt will be a Prep of clean design, of spacious rooms, of impersonal steel girders,
of rich green lawns, of landscaping done in perfect scale. It will be a school of
hope, with its eyes turned toward future years and coming generations. And it
will smell horribly of disinfectant.
Yet in spite of these fine new improvements, will not a few look back upon the
Flintridge-that-was with more than a touch of nostalgia? Wont they recall wifh
affection the uncertain plastering, the cobblestone masonry, and the irregular
steps of the errace? Of course they will-for our school is unique. lt has a spirit
within its walls-a wonderful, uplifting spirit that puts its head and shoulders
above a thousand of its fellow institutions. Here is a spirit bred of learning and
comraderie, a spirit that will remain until the school locks its doors forever.
And so in spite of bigger rooms of more gracious design, the soul and feeling
that is Preps life blood will not change. There will be the same wisdom, the
same beliefs, and as always, the same old iokes about the faculty. Within these
cold steel girders will take on a new personality: glad that they too are a part
of our greater Flintridge.

The Baird-Olsen affair or How to Enioy Oneself Without Tobacco
With a barnyard motif prevailing, the various
costumes were enough to give one hay-fever,
Before those two grand weeks of Christmas vaca-
tion the Seniors staged a first-rate Christmas
dance. Formal to the belt buckles, it nevertheless
underwent the typical intellectual informality of
the Student Body. During Christmas the social
season was at its exhausting height, and, as
always the Prepster contingent took a leading
part in these extra-curricular affairs.
Someone turned on the Christmas tree lights.
What is it?
Over the Easter holidays many found time to
take advantage of Balboa's shining waters,
despitethe exhorbitant rental price which was
eventually squeezed out of many home-loving
individuals. As the academic year came to a
close, the tempo of social life greatly increased.
More romances were enioyably developed, ditch
day instilled in the Seniors a new appreciation of
Prep, and the sophisticated Junior-Senior Prom
climaxed the calendar. A final touch of nostalgia
was effected by the inevitable Grad Night, an
event which still arouses unrequited desires for
