WV ' i; ! • ' «« 15 SENIORS The members of the Senior class have placed themselves in the position of pre- ferred stockholders during the last year by establishing certain precedents in dress as well as privileges. Examples include privileges granted in recognition of the maturity of the Senior class — the Senior Room and library stack privileges. Tra- ditions in activities such as the annual tug of war and improvement of dress w e also set. Thus, it is obvious that this year was a productive one for the preferred stockholders.

Largely through his efforts such institutions as the Junior and Senior lawns. Senior library stack privileges, and the Senior Room have been established during the last two years.

Divine. Pope: An Essay on Criticism Flintridge was fortunate this year to have an Exchange Student from Austria.

STUDENT COUNCIL The Studt ' iit Council, one of the most vigorous of student institutions, is com- posed of five officers. These officers are the Commissioner General and the Com- missioners of Academics. Athletics. Finance, and Publications. This year the council consists of three Seniors and two juniors.

Jake Taylor acts as Vice-President of the student body and handles the demerit system. John McEntyre is in charge of all athletic events, both intramural and varsity.

Boy, this sure does beat our paper. Under the able leadership of Paul Harman. editor, and Mr. Denniston. advisor, this year ' s Highlander has undergone a series of vast improvements. The staff ' s main objective was to revise the Highlander. A new format and improved reporting helped make this year ' s Highlander one of the greatest ever. Such editorial additions as " Socrates, the Spyder " and " Alumnus of the Month. " together with a broader coverage on school activities, have attracted the interest of the student bodv and faculty. The greatest achievement was the addition of the sophomore class to the staff, which doubles the previous number of members. It is the hope of all concerned that this previous experience will make next vear ' s Highlander an even greater success. Hartnan! I ran ' t stand another moment of it!

Now the club is made up of varsity lettermen. Senior " B " s " ' . and students who have earned two " B " " letters. The purpose of the club is to boost school spirit and encourage participation in school events. The club has made many contributions to the school, such as providing ushers at school events and athletic functions, holding pep rallies, cheerleading. and sponsoring several dances. The officers for this year, along with Mr. Bradbury as advisor, were Steve Fisher, president: Mike OReilly. vice-president; and Richard Kersten. secretary. Under their leadership, the Letterman ' s Club has added much to school life, and we hope that it will continue to do so in the coming years. ' hat orpanization.

The sophomores provided the first " office party ' with their dance " Polynesian Paradise. " The Seniors followed with their traditional Christmas Dance. The spring dance and the Junior-Senior Prom close out the ' " office parties " for this year. 50 SOPHOMORE DANCE The sophomores put on a fine fall dance this year.

The football players attended parties at the Manildi ' s and Slocum ' s resi- dences, for example. This year the Letterman ' s Club Play is planned, and other activities of this type make for a busy year. r Profound concentration — checking out the surfers. Chas., what have you been filching? 53 CAMPUS AND The Prep campus is on two levels, which naturally separate the campus into two parts. Sports and academics are thus physi- cally separated with the academic facilities overlooking the athletic field and the new gym. Future years will see a new swim- ming pool on the lower level. With the opening of the new building early in 1962, Prep gained a new study- hall, library, and laboratory. Flintridge now has two well-equipped laboratories to be used for biology, chemistry and phys- ics. The library contains fourteen thousand volumes arranged in both open and closed stacks. «fc S Tall trees, lawn-flanked walks, and an outdoor lunch area help provide the stu- dent with fresh air and sunshine. The campus, located against the Sierra Madre foothills, enjoys many more smogless days and blue skies than most other parts of Southern California. The mountain setting gave birth to the school nickname — the Highlanders. 54 CURRICULUM Possibly the most important asset of Flintridge is its small classrooms. Indi- vidual instruction and attention plus a closer student-teacher relationship rank Flintridge as one of the top secondary schools in the nation. Emphasis is placed on college preparation and high academic standards. Prep has a fine library-study hall de- signed to help the student in his work and to cultivate extracurricular interests. Books in French, Latin, and Spanish are available as well as a wide range of English books — from semantics to the Elizabethan stage. These books introduce the student to re- sources and techniques of research as well as to the world of literature. Advance placement courses in physics and calculus are the goal of every Prep mathematics major, while U.S. Government and other history courses are offered for the liberal arts major. Four years of lan- guage are also available, and four years of English are compulsory in the high school.

VARSITY FOOTBALL This year ' s Varsitv football team ranks as one of the top teams in Flintridge history, as they captured the Prep League title with a six win and no loss record. The devastating offense, which averaged 48 points per game. wa.s led by All-League quarterback Steve Manildi and halfbacks Jack Guernsey and Mike Gunn. Captain Richard Kersten and Ken Ford, both All-Leaguers, led a well- balanced defense which shut-out five of six opponents. Team depth was another key factof this year, for the starting teams were backed by strong reserve units. The prospect for next year looks just as good, as the entire offense returns, while defensive losses can be capably filled.

' e strong teams, the Flintridge " B ' s " went on to shut-out the rest of their opponents. The offense, which scored a total of 19. ' points in only five games, was led by Cap- tain Mike Horst at quarterback and halfback Bill Canepa. while John DeGroot headed the defense. Inexperience played a k ' y role this year in the team ' s record. Nevertheless, the " B ' s " are to be congratulated for their fine performance.

VARSITY BASKETBALL The 1963 edition of the Flintridge basketball team enjoyed a prosperous season, finishing as one of the eight best Class A teams in the Southern part of the state. Coach Tom Bradbury ' s cagers nailed down second place in Prep League play with a 9-3 record, thus gaining a position in the post-season C.I.F. tournament. The team was led this year by the consistent outside shooting of junior forward Steve Fritzen and the backboard work of Senior center Jake Taylor. The first five was rounded out by junior guards Steve Manildi and Mike Gunn, and sophomore forward Ken Stutz. With so many players returning next year, the prospects look very good for a championship in 1964. Fl ntridge — S slid Line SCORES Opponents — Dotted Line 80 70 y 60 50 40 30 20 S N 10 64 Pasa. Pac.

With the pre- season win over Harvard and Pasadena Academy ' s two forfeits of league games, Coach Jim Wood ' s team stretched the Prep " B ' s " winning streak to an amazing 55 straight victories. The fast-breaking offense and pressing zone defense, which accounted for victory after victory, were led by Captain Mike Horst and Jack Guernsey, both forwards, and center John DeGroot, all of whom averaged better than than ten points per game.

Last year Coach Jim Wood ' s swimmers did fairly well, finishing with a 2-3 record and setting a new school record in the free-style relay. This year with the return of five top swimmers, including John Frantz and Bob Nathason. and some fine newcomers, the swimming picture looks very good as the team has already posted a win over Montclair Prep by a 44-42 margin. With the possibility of a new outdoor pool and increased school interest there is an excellent chance that Prep will again have an outstanding swimming team. Trjouts for Superman.

FRONT ROW: Pennala, Horst, Levin, Bau mgarten, BASEBALL The baseball team at Flintridge has fared well in the past years. Last year a record of nine wins and- three losses in league play and an over-all record of 12-4 gave Tom Bradbury ' s Highlanders a second place tie with Long Beach Brethren while Chadwick captured the Prep League crown. This season the prospect of a league championship and a C.LF. Playoff berth looks even better as eleven players from last year ' s squad of fourteen, including pitcher Jeff Halverson. catcher Eric Pennala, and infielders Richard Kersten and Steve Manildi, are returning. Coach Bradbury predicts that with a little work and good hitting, the Prep baseballers can look forward to another fine season. Strike four! do not [lass Go, do not collect $200.

TENNIS In the past Prep ' s tennis team has not met with too much success. Last year, however, the Flint- ridge team came through with a winning season, the first such achievement in many years. With the entire squad returning — including top singles players Ken Payne and Bruce Murdy — and with the acquisitition of some fine new freshmen, the team seems to show signs of being even stronger than last year. There is the added incentive of some of the players going to Ojai for the big tournament held there every spring. Thus, the future looks very bright for Prep ' s tennis team. Classic tennis form. 73 Under the able dirertion of this year ' s Student Council, the intramural events which make up class competition were carried afl quickly and smoothly with the Seniors grabbing the majority of the gold medals. The juniors made a strong bid for first place; but as the year progressed, the powerful Senior Class pulled the juniors through the mud again and again and again. To raise spirits at the beginning of school, the arrogant juniors challenged the .Seniors to a tug- a-war over a mud pit. The .Seniors arrived in style in three jeeps and monogrammed shirts, while the juniors were totally disorganized. As could be ex- pected, the highly organized Seniors quickly pulled and dragged the over-confident juniors through the pit three times. CLASS Through the mud again. Barry in his rice patty. li, Another great battle was fought on the football field. The game was unexpectedly won by the juniors in a hard-fought 14-13 victory over the Seniors. The juniors ' final touchdown in the closing seconds of the game placed the Seniors in second place. In academic events, the Seniors easily won grades and demerits for the first three quarters, with the juniors placing second in grades and last in demerits. As we go to press, the Seniors are sure to be the guests of either the freshmen or the sophomores for a fine dinner. As always, the events were en- gaged in with a spirit of fun and good sportsman- ship, and the competition did much to increase class unity. COMPETITION That ' s a hard one!
