The torch that illurnines the ages,
Shines forth in its glorious splenclor
Revealing all things to he new.
Young genius, once hlintlly seehin g
Priceless treasures of the nzuses
Stops, heholcling the hright clisplay
Of precious gerns, for which he now
Gives settings worthy of their brilliance.
Music, art, literature,
Against the sirn ple, forceful background
Of the new, untutorecl talent,
Glow euen rnore hrightly than hefore.

Good-hye, dear Jchool, our four-year journey'.f endedg
The tiine hay come when all of us rnust party
We Jin g to you our praifex that are blended
With sorrow and regret within our hearts:
Now we will go
Far on our way
N ever forgetting thif dayg
With nzein'rie5 so dear,
And hearty Jo Jineere,
Thankful we'll he alway.
School that haf taught
And that hay wrought
For our own welfare
We'll do our heft
With all the rest
Your naine to wear!
Float high! dear nanze
Of heneiflent fame!
A All hear our cry
- AJ we now say-GOOD-BYE!
TO THE CLASS GF JUNE, 1934:
"fre taken my frm where 1,176 found it."
Es, and we may be sure that Kiplingls old soldier took
his work where he found it, and that he took his life
where he found it and as he found it, in fact his part
of the world just as he found it. He did not waste time
wondering if he liked the world. No one asked him if he
liked it, nor made any effort to suit it to his particular
wishes. He was expected to step into his place in the ranks
and give good service until he was called out as a leader,
just doing the thing he was needed for and serving those
who needed him, trying to live and work and play so that
the generation which followed him would find the world
better because he had worked and played to make it better.
With the best work there must be fun-wholesome, up-
lifting fun, to make the world go easier.,Plenty of this kind
of fun is to be found, the fun that needs no apology, no
explanation, that brings no regrets after the play is done.
The idea that high school and college graduates feel that
they are needed to set things right immediately after gradu-
ation is not new. For years a favorite idea at commencement
exercises has been to caution graduates against the notion
that the world has long been waiting for them to readjust
conditions. No doubt the need for readjustment is greater
than usual. It is true that you will have a great part to per-
form in the readjustment. It may be your privilege to change
the whole purpose of human endeavor. You may be able to
fix a new standard under which one's value to the commu-
nity is estimated, not upon accumulation of material things,
but upon service to others, not only the desire to provide
equality of opportunity, but to secure achievement of the
objectives which the opportunity presents. Can you bring
fulfillment of hopes closer to everyday life? Such service
demands broad vision, new objectives, new courage, an un-
assailable character, perseverance, faith, confidence in self.
The need may not be so much for new ideals as a return to
some of the substantial ideals of former generations, to
those virtues, which, as President Sproul has said . . . "men,
through long process of trial and error, have found indis-
pensable factors of a tolerable life."
So take the world as you find it. Build upon the factors
that other generations have tested for you. Save yourselves
from long processes of trial and error. With all the drive at
your command, with work and fun, build a world sane and
safe for the builders who follow you. Thisiyou can do if
you are the line and noble young people your principal
believes you to be.

ART of the important job of graduate editor is in the assembling of 318 pictures
and names and making them fit. This graduate prophecy is an after-thought-
something to be done after one has been made dizzy looking at pictures of people
whose interest in the Telescope never goes beyond their own good likeness and sometimes
not that far.
As if the assembling of names and pictures were not enough, I was pulled in on
the actual pasting of the things this year-a work of art, if you please. The whole task
had me "down', as I walked from school at 2 o'clock one afternoon in the final rush to
complete the section. Now I must write the prophecy. What should I say? Well, I weak-
ened and instead of writing it that day I found myself in the cushion seat of a down-town
movie viewing Mickey Mouse running after Minnie. But it was very warm and I found
myself growing very drowsy and as far away from an idea as I ever was. I-Im-m-m, that
screen seemed to be very blurry. Something wrong somewhere. Ah, now it was becoming
clearer. Something is still wrong, it canlt be---yes, it must be-it is I-it's Margit Larson
I see. She's on a boat. Wonder what she's doing there? Why, I'm standing beside her!
People are cheering, throwing confetti. We seem to be going on some kind of trip. The
screen is becoming still clearer. I seem to be talking to Margit. Oh, yes! Now the talking
machine is working.
'II say, Margit, donit you think this is exciting?,'
"You bet. As soon as we settle down let's go on deck and hunt up Captain Corbett
Baker. He's an old friend of ours, you know, and he can take us down to the electric
room to show us how this stream-line flying boat runsf,
"You know, Margit, these beds are queer looking contraptions. They,re more like a
one-sided sausage than anything else. At least you can't roll out of them for I canlt say
Itd enjoy landing on the floor in the middle of my sleep."
"Well, you won't in those. Theylre the latest stream-line beds, roll-proof, fall-
proof, and what-have you."
"Come on, letls go on deck. Everything's in order now."
"Theres purser Donald Holser. Let's ask him where the captain is."
"Oh purser, purser! Where can we find the captain?',
"Hes busy just at present, ma'am. Helll be at his table at dinner-time, malam. You
can see him theref,
"Let's go find the swimming-pool, Margit, it will fe-ouch-el Mt8c8c8zII! Well,
I must say, young man, you could keep your feet to yourself when you're coming around
"XWhy, it's Robert Smith! What are you doing here?',
"Weill How are you? I'm traveling across to Peiping. Being a lawyer I'm sent almost
anywhere. Say, itis time for dinner. Shall we go and have a bite? We can talk in the
"Sure thing. After you set me on that floor, I could eat out the whole kitchen.
"They certainly serve good food on this boat! By the way, what are you two doing
"Well, we're working for Madame Lucile Dragonls Dress Shop in New York and
we are going over to copy dress designs-even if we have to dive down as far as the
"Quite an interesting job, I must sayf,
"We enjoy it immensely."
"Say, I saw Virginia Kesterson yesterday. She came in to see me about some legal
I Page 261
records. I had quite a long talk with her about old times. She had just heard that Evelyn
Miller was on her way to Hollywood for a contract with the Robert Glick Studios. It
seems that from the same source she also heard that Wallace Mark, Lido Luperini, Elmo
De Luca and Robert Kopf are directors down there, and Donald Bergeron, Ernest De-
Martini, Montell Higgins and Roy Speier are their assistants. Douglas Watson, Richard
Uriarte, William Stabler and Ralph Stoddard are all cameramen. Isabella Henry, june
Hillman and Virginia Costa write the stories for the stars for whom Dorothy Fitzgerald
and Frances Riedy design costumes. Virginia Lewis, jane Lathrop, Helen Gawry, Robert
Thorp and Harry Young are make-up artists."
"I've heard that Attilio Bava is also down there playing his accordion."
"Oh yes, she said that Hazel Santos and Charlotte Bambino have a dance team of
their own on the stage. Antonette Laiolo, Josephine Lombardi and Marguerite Whitman
have main parts in Matthew Lebenbaum's opera production. I heard also that Adelina
Ceccarelli, William Muller, Ian Humphries, Louis Menconi, Edward Scheid, Albert
Dondero, Alex Alison, Burnell Kahn, Walter Morse, Sam Roberts, Gino Tricoli, Joan
Swift, Olympia Rege and Lucile Patania are in the chorus, while Florence Viacava and
Leon Gorman are in the orchestraf'
"Shall we go upstairs now?"
"I think I'd like to go to my cabin and clean up a bit.'l
"O.K. Goodbye-we'll see you later."
"Margit, I'm rather tired, aren't you? Letls go to bed."
Six o'clock the next morning when I ironically asked Margit if she felt like some
breakfast, her reply wasn't very reassuring.
"No-o-o-o-o-o, for goodness' sakes, don't talk food! I think I have a slight case of
"Well, you can call it slight but I've my own ideas about that. My roast duck and
cheese soufle are having a terrible battle and the coffee is putting in a word, too." We
spent the remainder of the trip in bed.
Friday morning found us on deck surrounded by our bags and ready to get off the
minute the gangplank was down.
We had not been in Hongkong many hours before we had absorbed enough "atmo-
sphere" to know we were in China. Once on solid ground, we became hungry. After
getting settled in our hotel room, we went downstairs to eat, and it was amusing to see
the natives as they came punctually for their inevitable tea. Sitting in a secluded corner,
we sketched to our hearts' content as women wandered in and out dressed in their native
"By the way, did you get those tickets for the theatre tonight?l'
"Yes, I have them. I imagine we're in for an interesting eveningf' g
On a shelf of the mountainside we found a large native theatre flourishing with a
nightly change of bill. To our surprise, it was managed by joseph Fong and joseph Park
Li. They gave us the best seats they had and said they hoped we would enjoy ourselves.
There were many American tourists besides ourselves in Hongkong, and some whom
we knew. jane Marland, Barbara Nelson, Edna Nilsen and Margaret Nagel made up one
party. In another corner, we found Pat Keith, Helene Dallman and Marjorie McCall,
who were there because the U.S. was too dead. Richard Cassidy, John Cushing and
William Glang were there for the opposite reason-they wanted a rest. julie Mlaker,
Evelyn Stanley and Olga Parenti were on their way to Siam.
We enjoyed the plays immensely. Horn Gok and Sun Yee Koo had the leads and
were ably supported by Sam Wah, Carena Sing and Wing Tong.
Next day we traveled to one of the most amazing cities on earth-Canton. There
we were astounded at the boat dwellers who form a distinct and numerous class by them-
selves. At frequent intervals, funeral boats passed and they were the noisiest of all. Some
of them equalled the din of a boiler factory.
"Look, Margit, there's Raymond Rocca, our ambassador to China. Let's catch up
I Page 27 1
"Going to a fire or just naturally in a hurry?"
"Why, hello there! I've been expecting you. I had to go to Peiping the other day
and I met an old friend of ours who said you came over on the same boat with him."
"We saw Sanford Lowengart in Washington before we left and he said to be sure
to look you up. We left Hongkong yesterday and we're going to Egypt tomorrow."
we're going to Egypt tomorrow."
"Well, then, why can't you come and stay at the American Embassy House tonight?"
"We'll be glad to do thatf,
The three of us settled ourselves as best we could in sedan chairs, gave the signal,
and were plunged into the city as one would descend into a mine or into a crystal maze.
Before long, we approached a comfortable-looking house which was shaded by big trees
and overlooked the great walled city across the muddy waters of the Pearl River.
It so happened that that night there was a convention of delegates from other coun-
tries, and from our table we were not surprised to see some whom we knew: Minoru
Endo, Heroni Nakagaki and Henry Nakatani from Japan, William Lee from China and
Anthony Cusimano and john Garibaldi from Italy, Yoke Chung Wong, Emile Waldt-
enfel, and others we did not know.
We thanked Raymond that night for his hospitality and left the next morning for
P"What a noisy station! It's like a madhousef'
"Here, boy! Take these bags and put them on our train. We'd better follow him,
Margit, or we're liable to end up in Alaska somewhere. Come on."
"Such trains! If we have curved spines and stiff necks tomorrow, don't blame me."
"Why, look whofs collecting tickets! Of all people-Charles Maguire! What are
you doing so far away from the States?"
"Oh, I'm just here for my own amusement. I have to do something to keep out of
After endless explanations on both sides, we left him and made our way to the
dining car. Much was our dismay to find we couldn't read the menu, but we closed our
eyes and made a guess. It was not bad, though for the life of us we hadn't the slightest
idea what we were eating.
Arriving in Alexandria, we settled in the ever-present hotel. Next day, our guides,
Joe Spiker and james Simonds, were very amused when we started off on camels to see
"Why you ev-bump-er got me to ri-bump-de-bump on one of-bump-
these th-bump-ings, Margit Larson-bump, I can't bump see. I'll bump never
get on an-bump-other one-bump."
'lIt is ki-bump-nd of bu-bump--mpy but we're almost th-bump-ere."
"Whew! Maybe these natives like their camels, but after this, I'll walk. To think
I had to go through all that agony for a peek at an Egyptian costume in a pyramid that's
on its last legs! We'll be lucky if we don't die from the sight of a mummy. I don't relish
the idea. Do you?"
"Well, when it has to be done, it has to, so keep still and let's get it over."
"O.K. You can lead the way, I'll followf'
"Look, Margit! If it isn't jim Kindt! Hello, jim. What are you doing so far from
"Oh, hello! Imagine seeing you here after all these years! I'm heading a scientific
expedition here for the Scientists Club in New York. But may I ask you the same
"Never mind how we got here. We're here, and that's enough."
"Oh, look! Therels Frank Shawn and Pasquale Vozzo! Are they in your expedition,
"Yes. Youlll find several of your old friends from Galileo. joe Wildberger and Ben
Brooks are down farther and they have Robert Wenzel, james Eaurot, Leonard Polley,
I Page 281
Charles Clover, Edward Callahan and Ernest Antrobus with them. We all ended up in
the same business. It's very interesting. You ought to try it sometime."
After we left jim, we spent a few hours between visiting the ruins, chatting with our
friends, and by jotting down some ideas. We then paid our adieux to the expedition and
started back to our hotel. This time I walked and was not sorry for it. The next day Margit
stayed in bed-she would ride her camel! ,
"Say, Margit, whom do you suppose I saw down at breakfast this morning?"
"You guess. I'm tiredf,
"Eleanor Sansom, Eileen Wiechers and Eleanor Hart! The trio work on a maga-
zine at home and are here for ideas for travel articles, fashions, sketches and anything
else they find. Betty Ballord, Marion Jayne, Beverly Gregory and Beth Kind are here
on a tour around the world, just for lack of something better to do. They're just here
for today and then intend to go on to Cairo. They said to say hello to you and any other
mutual acquaintances we meet."
When Margit was once more able to walk, we resumed our sight-seeing tour. We
found ourselves down on a terrace sipping a cooling drink while watching the endless
procession in which East does meet West in person. We decided we wanted to visit an
Egyptian farm-not one of those packs of mud over which water is poured, but a real
farm. We were enthusiastic when our dragoman, Victor Williams, told us he had received
an invitation for us to visit a rich gentleman farmer. Word was sent by a running Ethio-
pian that we would arrive at four o'clock. We met Martha Hayes, Harriet De Goff, George
Silverman, james Waggle and Lawrence Webber, who were also guests of the farmer.
Here, indeed, we had found a "farm" in the midst of a desert, and a grand old chap for
a host who played the part of a patriarch in elegant fashion. We approached great wheat
fields and a large mud village which, we were informed, was where his six hundred
helpers lived. We were escorted into the courtyard of the big residence, whereupon our
host ushered us to an immense desk and showed us a large tourists' book and asked us to
sign our names. Amused at his whim, Margit and I looked through it and to our surprise
found many whom we knew. A few years back, Dorothy Angelinich, Florence Lamerdin,
Mary Jessup, Louise Lagier and Matilda Shemano had been there. Written a few months
later were the names of the Endo sisters, Hiro and Yoneg Dahlia Muramatsu, Mary
Kusimine, Melvyn Friendly, Sergio Lucchesi and Milton Levi. Dated just last year we
found the signatures of Wallace Ruggles, Louis Olsen, Edward Natalini, john Ghio,
Charles Coleman, Howard Friedman, Willis Huson and George Martinelli. It was
amusing to see the names of those people with their professions written after them. Some
were just traveling, others merely studying medicine or law, etc.
When we entered the courtyard, we saw our host squatting on a couch. He was
dressed in European clothes but was wearing a large red turban. We were presented to
him one by one. His sons, who were called in to be presented to us, prostrated themselves
before him before we were recognized. We stayed over two hours and during that time
there was a constant round of refreshments, ending with sage tea and sweet Egyptian
brown bread. In relays, as we could stand the heat, we went out on the farm and observed
things. We came back to the courtyard where our animals were brought for departure,
and after a hearty handshake, the farmer told us he hoped we would come again. We
thanked him and promised we would.
The end ofseveral weeks in Egypt found us on our way to India. Here we were
amused to see large elephants in the Ganges River contentedly spraying themselves in the
muddy waters. Cows, the sacred animals, were wandering in and out of the houses eating
what they pleased. Too, we found an interesting settlement just outside the village.
Doctors jack Loupe and Robert Minner were trying to wipe out some of the disease in
this infested country. They had constructed a large building resembling a hospital. Nurses
Elsie Barbonotti, Mary Maglio, Deon Neely, Olive Orosco, Pauline Maninfior, Lena
Massa, Carolyn Lazzaro, Doreen Fenton, Louise Gabrielli and Eva Foliotti were all very
interested in their work. Internes Mervyn Wagenheim, Tully Simoni, Richard Vulte,
I Page 291
Frank Tringale and Carl Sitzenstatter completed the force. We went to see them one day
before we left for Russia.
In Russia we met Vesley Wagner, who was traveling for the government. He told us
that he was being stationed in Turkey to train men. He also said that Ian Ferguson, Elmer
Schiro, George Chalmers, Bennett Raffin, Grayson Hinckley, George Moore and Philip
Bush had been graduated from West Point several years before. Clarence La Rocca was
stationed in Panama. Adolph Malatesta was in jugoslavia.
Late the next afternoon, we boarded a train bound for Moscow. Crossing the border
line we found Windsor Meales stranded in mid-air repairing an aerial for his broad-
casting station. Silvio Massoletti, Richard Martinelli and Charles Luporini, his assistants,
were valiantly trying to rescue him.
Many were the tiny villages we passed through en route to our destination. We were
able to stay there only overnight, so, making the most of our time, we went to a concert.
There we found Alla Sviridoff, one of the greatest pianists of our country, giving a
recital. Besides enjoying the music, we had ample time to jot down sketches.
While in Moscow, we tried to read one of the papers. As far as we could under-
stand, Elmo Candelo, George Clarke, jean Edwards and Ignatius Piazza were about to
build their first bridge.
Next morning, at dawn, we settled ourselves on a nonfstop train to Paris, where we
expected to stay about a month before going back to the States.
On arrival, we found Willa Lloyd and jane Doran waiting for us at the station.
We had wired to them from our last stop. With a word of greeting, they bundled us off
in Willa's car to her tiny house in the heart of Paris. Once there, she made us rest while
she prepared dinner. This necessity over, we dressed for the theatre. They took great pride
in taking us to one of the best, where we found that john Steinhart's production of Ralph
Law's Travels was being shown. Among the finely-coiffeured heads and tuxedoed figures,
we recognized Gertrude Bauer, Phyllis Bruce, joel Stein, Mary Metzger, Jean Nuber,
Valerie Mitchell, Albert Anders, Harry Cush, james Ferguson, Edward Hurlbut, Signe
Ashe, Norma Da Massa, jule Carpenter, Ethel Chorney, Dario Lodigiani, Maurice Lilot,
Winfred Lee, George Monaghan, Walter Parry, Frances Woolley, Betty Lou Taylor,
Tatiana Kotliaroff, Elena Sakovich, Alex Kotliaroff, Beryl Scott, Beverly Seares, Attilio
Ronconi, Eugene Rege, Kathryn Wolfsohn, Lucille Tori and Donald O,Neil.
After the theatre, we went to a small cafe on the Champs Elysee.
"This is so interesting. All we've seen in the past few months has been exciting, I
must admit, but this is even more so. These quaint Bohemian cafes are so attractive."
"Oh look! There's Noreen Ames. She's over here studying law isnlt she?"
"Yes, Shall we stop and see her on our way out?',
"Let's do. Shels so interesting."
"Hello, Noreen. How are you?"
"Hello there! I haven't seen you for a long time. Come on and sit down."
How have you been?"
just fine. I heard from Angelo Luisetti today. Hels now head basketball coach at
the University of California, and Fred Neerman, Frank Passanisi, William Peiser and
james Richardson are there with him."
"We saw a notice on our way down here that Yvonne West was coming to the
Opera House to present her famous toe dancef,
"Vivian Parnigoni is editing a magazine of her own and has Janice Rosenthal,
Roxanna Spencer, Virginia Stewart and Mildred Stone as her staff writers."
"Well, I think we'd better go now. We're a bit tired from our long journey. I hope
we see you again before we leave."
"I hope so, too. Goodbyef'
Next day found us in an exclusive dress shop. Very slyly we copied models as they
were presented to us. We came mighty near being caught at it several times.
Upon leaving, whom should we run into but Wilma Ostrander, who was buying
dresses for Frances Piersonls shop in New York. She joined us for tea and we learned
I Page 301
that Betty Walda was there buying her complete trousseau, as she was to be married in
the Fall. Adele Raymond, Julia Powell, Nona Briley and Jeanette Eller were to be her
bridesmaids. Catherine Ferguson, Antoinette Guidi, Claire Ann Lievre and Marilynn
Helms were in various French schools in the city. We talked about old acquaintances and
I found out that Alan Hyman, Edwin Kennedy, George Kennedy, Attilio Ruggiero, Paul
Sartorio, Antone Santora, Lovell Langstroth, Joe King, and Frank Sangiacomo had joined
We were not in Paris longer than two weeks before we knew our way about in the
maze of streets. In one quaint part of town we found Olwen Harris and Leonida Grillo
running an antique shop. Sylvia Pucceti and Thelma Galli were their two silent partners.
Bessie Kitano and Helene Shimizu had a jewelry store of their own and we found them
in the act of selling some of their wares to Leona Ensign and Janet Levin.
We couldn't leave Paris without visiting a fashion design school, so we searched for
a good one for several days before we left, and found one owned by Helen Beck. Her
assistants, Boyd Hinckley, Robert Deovlet, Angelina Germano, Anna Giorgi and Lillian
Greenwald, showed us through their respective departments.
It was with a pang of regret that we left the exciting life of the Parisians to board
a train bound for Boulogne to catch our boat homeward. Our trunks packed with sketches
and curios, we felt our trip had been well worth our while.
On the train, Margit happened to pick up a magazine and saw an article written by
Justine Hyde on "Worlds Doings". It included the doings of Dorothy Atkins, Mildred
Hartvig, Eileen Holtzen, Nancy Love, Mary Elizabeth Reed and Paula Levick. Elinore
Kilgore had just completed her book, l'Evening Flower". Barbara Berg, Vivian Gilbert,
and Merla Kellam had just received their fifth salary increases. Mary Gasalla, Ruth Cuneo,
Phyllis Devencenzi, Jewel Kane, Ethyl Jones, Kathleen Kennelly, Mary Molinario, Agnes
Malloy, Irene Lavaroni, Emma Molinari, Lena Mangini, Anita Mainz and Kay Lavezzoli
had all been accepted in literary and art fields.
After putting our bags in our cabin, we went on deck to watch our departure.
Leaning over the railing, we idly regarded the men loading the boat. We found many
passengers who were old friends. Denise Burns, Robert McMillan, Lowell Friend, John
Davis, Charles Crawford, Angelina Banchero, Virginia Burnett, Winifred Cannon, Dina
Belluomini, Virginia Giampaoli, Frances Clayton, Edith De Martini, Ruth Finney, Rita
Cunningham and Jeanette Prudhomme had evidently all decided, at the same time we
did, to go back to America.
As cries and cheers came from both on deck and on shore, we dimly picked out
those we knew as the ship slowly put her nose once more to sea. Cyril Benigni, William
Himmelhock, Harrison Brown, Erwin Hanni, Laura Giovacchini, Elsie Brunkhorst,
Salvador Gomez, Casimero Dumlao, Vandalo Barsotti, Quinto Bravo, Elvira Parenti,
Aurelia Raggio, Louis Bedoni, Dante Bravo, George De Martini, Jacqueline Rounsefell,
Lena Sylvester, Rose Ressighini, Harry Cohn, Wilber Clay, Cynthia Buckley, Norma
Carniglia, Bruno Cicchi, Marco Carniglia, Geraldine Gattman, Florence Castelano, Alice
Esposto, Dorothy Cirimele, Adolph Boicelli, Rosario Dagampat, Dorothy Crowley, Doris
Cortopassi and Frank Brown were waving goodbye to their various friends on board.
It was with a tinge of regret that we departed from this now somewhat familiar
country. But all good things must come to an end and so our departure turned the last
page of the last chapter of our book of life and adventure on foreign soil.
"Pardon me, ma'am, but the matinee is over. If you'd like to come back-"
I had traveled over the world while asleep in a movie.
On the way home, once more my thoughts wandered back to my prophecy. What
should I write? Every good idea had already been used by former graduate editors.
Should I have them returning to San Francisco for the opening of the Golden Gate
Bridge, where they all meet and discuss their doings? No, the scenery should become
monotonous. It must be kept moving. Ah, I had it-the show, our 'round-the-world
trip, meeting high school acquaintances in far corners of the globe! The idea had come.

SENIGIQ DAY EVENT GF TEIQM
By ELEANOR HART, june ,344
HE High and Low Senior classes, due to occupation of the building by Lowell
in the afternoon, had a difficult time arranging entertainments and business during
the Spring Term. The traditional Freshman Reception had to be omitted from
the social calendar, and the only oiiicial "get-togetherl' of the Seniors was the Senior
Luncheon-Dance presented in the cafeteria and the girls' gymnasium. This was made
possible through the permission of Mr. Francis E. Crofts, principal of Lowell.
President of the High Senior Class was Wallace Ruggles, vice-president, Eleanor
Hart, secretary, Phil Bush , treasurer, jim Faurot, and the representative, Antonette
In the Low Senior Class, jack Middleton was the president, Pat Skinner, vice-presi-
dent, William Seineke, secretary-treasurer, and Paul Thompson, representative.
Under these officers the following committees for the long-awaited Senior Luncheon
H-4 Luncheon Arrangements: Dorothy Atkins, Virginia Costa, Ethyl jones, Frances
Pierson, Beverly Seares, Beth Kind, Walter Morse, joe Wildberger, john Garibaldi and
Jim Faurot. L-4's on the committee were: Lawrence Queiser, Warren Ringen, Tyler Mc-
Hugh, Trevor White, Claire Sloan, Barbara Thane and jane Frericks.
H-4 Entertainment Committee: Phyllis Bruce, Ed Hurlbut, Antonette Laiolo, Evelyn
Miller, George Moore and Angelo Luisetti.
H-4 Dance Committee: Eileen Wiechers, Bob Glick, Virginia Lewis, Bob Kopf and
Bill Muller. L-4's: Bill Martine, Roy Tremeraux, Bob Nelson, Felice Harris and Patricia
H-4 Ticket Committee: Ben Brooks, jean Edwards, Charlotte Bambino, Melvyn
Friendly, Virginia Costa, jane Lathrop, Ioel Stein, Catherine Ferguson and Eileen Holt-
zen. L--4's: Trevor White, Tyler Mcl-lugh, Milt Seropan and Roy Tremeraux.
The entertainment worked up by the committees was different from any before
presented in Galileo. There was a delicious luncheon spiced with entertainers a la cabaret
style. The excellent talent unearthed by the two committees on entertainment consisted of
Antonette Laiolo, Ramona Shorb, Bill Dunne, josephine Lombardi, Tulio Simoni, Rox-
anna Spencer, Harrison Brown, Warren Ringen, Al Martin, june Cox, Bill Seineke,
Pietro Pardini, Don Holzer, Jim Kindt, Bill Muller and Frank Shawn.
A very enjoyable dance was then presented in the girls' gymnasium, with the new
school dance orchestra supplying the music.

JUNIGIQS I-ICDLD IMDDIQTANT QFFICES
By jAcK COWAN, june '35
HEN a student becomes an upper classman, there are certain social events to which
he looks forward with great pleasure. This term, because we had to vacate the
premises at noon, it was impossible for the junior administration to present any
President of the High junior Class was jack Cowan, vice-president, Helen Hall,
secretary-treasurer, jack Breeden, and representative, jack Kent.
The Low junior officers were Fred Campagnoli, president, Camille Moreggia, vice-
president, john Sisich, secretary-treasurer, and Wilson Dolman, representative.
Members of the junior classes were found in an overwhelming number of positions
of trust, on committees, in clubs, or on the athletic field.
Peter Fay, a High junior, had the distinctive honor of being athletic manager, and
judging from the positions in which the various Galileo teams linished, one might say
that he more than fulhlled his task.
Two High junior girls took part in "Gas, Air, and Earl", one of the three one-act
plays presented this term. They were Diane Neville, who played the part of Elinore
Plummer, the heroine, and Barbara Newberg, who took the part of Kitty Carson.
Helen Hall and Helen Huckins were vice-president and secretary of the Little
Theatre Club, and Florence Brown and Helen Huckins were secretary and treasurer
respectively of the Natural History Club.
Aside from the social circles and clubs, many juniors were found on this year's crew.
They were Peter Fay, jack Kent, Fred Campagnoli, john Schaupp, Boris jugoleff, Fred
Lamerdin, Bud Thompson, jack Cowan, "jiggs" Hamilton, Ernest Brede and jack Tilton.
The juniors were also fairly well represented on this year's championship swimming team.
The paddlers were Horace Foster, Dick Frates, Leland Cohen, Masami Dobashi, jack
Furth, jack Dangers and jack Jacobs.
Bud Thompson, Harold Missamore and jean Lacau were the only juniors on this
year's championship basketball team, but Thompson proved his ability by being high-
point man in the Mission game and playing a bang-up Hoor game besides.
In feminine athletics there were seven girls from the third-year class on the swim-
ming team. Among them were Barbara Latz, Marjorie Hayward, Adele Marks, Dorothy
DeMaria, june Woo and Marjorie St. Claire.
If the Juniors continue their excellent work, we may expect great things from the
Senior classes next year.

SODHOMOIQE CLASS ACTIVE IN SDOIQTS
By Bon BoUcKE, june '36
AST YEAR, because of the influence of Wilson Dolman, a day was set aside for the
Sophomores. Although this was the first time that it had ever been tried, the day
proved a tremendous success. This term it was automatically cancelled when the
short school session was announced. However, as soon as a program can be outlined that
will not disturb Lowell, the new day will be retained.
Following are the High Sophomore officers: Bob Boucke, president, john Hauser,
vice-president, John Gordon, secretary-treasurer, and Robert Stewart, representative.
These students were not able to prove their capabilities in organizing and presenting
Sophomore Day, but they deserve a great deal of credit for their successful leadership.
The Low Two's were under the able administration of the following class officers:
Wallace Aron, president, June Ford, vice-president, Dion O,Sullivan, treasurer, Edith
Crawford, secretary, and Bob Byrne, representative.
The only activities that appealed to any of the Sophomores were the numerous sports.
In baseball, Bouth represented the class. The champion basketball team had john Hauser
as one of its most capable substitutes. On the lightweight team that tied for second place
there were three second-year men. Dillon, Silvestri and Pezet were the hoopsters that
supported the team to the best of their ability.
The champion heavyweight and lightweight crews were likewise well represented
by second-year men. On the unlimiteds, Bob Carratto held one of the precious substitute
positions and is slated to become a regular for the next two years. On the lightweights,
Curtis Hayden, Alfred Lewis and Alfred Vaccarino helped defend the crown by pulling
oars while Richard Witt piloted. y
The Galileo lightweight swimming team, for the most part, was comprised of
Sophomores. Goldman and Palmer were on the 110,s. Aronson, Linderman and O'Sul-
livan were point winners for the 120's. For the 15Ols Benzhof and Little splashed their
way to victories both in practice meets and the A.A.A. meet at Fleishhacker Pool. Stengele
was the only one on the unlimiteds.
Although not as successful as other teams, the track squad deserve much credit for
the spirit that they maintained throughout the term. Clark, Milliken, Dillon, Hauser and
Luca were all Sophomores who represented the Lions on the cinder paths.
Since the class was limited in its activities for this semester, Galileo is looking
forward to the coming term when it will perhaps be able to carry on its long Planned

VERY Freshman Class labors under the disadvantage of adjustment to a new environ-
ment. During the Spring Term it was especially difficult for the newcomers because
of the half-day session, which has deprived the Low Ones of the reception cus-
tomarily given them by the Seniors. This was a regrettable situation as the Seniors contact
the newcomers at this traditional rally for initiation to the social life of the school.
However, other class activities went on as usual and Senior Advisors were especially
active in meeting the situation, doing individually what the class was unable to do as a
The Seniors who helped in this work had a difficult time in finding spare moments
in which to advise the Freshmen, but somehow or other managed to see them every
two or three weeks to aid them in their school work and other activities.
The short session seems to have stimulated scholarship, as many Freshmen have
been on the Honor Roll. Some of them were: High Ones: Ruth Miner, Edna Hardy, May
Lo, Harold Barnard, Margaret Biehl, Marietta Granucci, May Gooch, Dolores Holland,
Janet McGinnis, Katherine Mariatos, Elsie Miller, jungi Oyaki, Alfredo Pedrini and
Doris Ravizza. Low Ones: Bill Raymond, Isabel Parker and Lois Moore.
Officers of the Freshman classes were: High Ones: Harold Barnard, president, Mil-
dred Hebgen, vice-president, Ernest Figone, secretary, Donald Lamont, representative.
Low Ones: Edgar Stein, president, Evelyn Burns, vice-president, Woodrow Hervey,
secretary , june Ayer, representative.
Several of the Freshmen spent their otherwise idle afternoons by going out for
sports. Daniel Aronson, representing the High One Class, made good on the swimming
team. Entered in the one hundred and ten pound class, he took first place in the fifty-yard
breast stroke and first in the relay race. George Holden, also representing the Freshman
Class on the swimming team, earned fifteen points.
The boys are not the only good swimmers, as Rose Marie Mullany of the High One
Class is an up-and-coming star on the girls, team. Marian Dondero and Mildred Hebgen
also were seen practicing every Thursday afternoon.
Two boys of this class made the lightweight crew: Wilton Latz as lightweight cox-
swain, and Robert jones as assistant unlimited coxswain.
Patricia Bury, Marian Dondero and Jeanette Adams made a wonderful showing at
tennis. Jeanette is also in great demand as an entertainer because of her ability as a tap
dancer. Edna Hardy also is a gifted dancer and has represented the class in this capacity.

STU DENT BODV AFFAI IQ!
By BILL GLANG, june 1934
As far as social functions were concerned, the Spring Term of 1934 was per-
haps the most inactive since the founding of the school. However, this fact did
not affect the extra-curricular activities of the students.
Under the administration of President Kindt, student body officials man-
aged to straighten out many difliculties confronting them during the term. Vice-
President Noreen Ames carried out all the work expected of her.
Harry Cohn, who last term served as custodian, enacted the position of secretary
well by recording all affairs of the student body. The position of treasurer was
filled by John Steinhart, who had a busy term in this most important post,
Custodian Sanford Lowengart kept the new and old trophies in trim, while

UST twelve years ago, Galileo published its first Telescope. Since then this book has
gone ahead with the school that it represents. It always has been the object of the
staff to capture for permanent record in their annual, the activities, dances, memories
and other things that make high school days remembered far more than classes and
examinations. In this twenty-fifth edition the staff have tried, not in vain, to give some-
thing that will bring back pleasant memories many years from nowf
If such is not the case, it will not be the fault of Margit Larson, editor-in-chief, and
Bill Glang, editor, who gave up many of their leisure hours to reach this object. Miss
Larson, in charge of the art arrangement, was worried over the book only when Lois Toso,
executive editor who kept tab of the finances, informed her that the advertising campaign
was lagging and that it would be necessary to plan a less elaborate book than had been
the original idea. Bill Glang's troubled moments arrived when it became necessary to blue-
pencil pages of copy and cut it to fill certain spaces.
This great economy was necessary because the Telescope has no guarantee of support
from the student body, and must aim to be entirely self-supporting. For the past three
terms, there has been an average deficit of 3104 an edition. As every other large organi-
zation in Galileo receives financial aid from the school funds, and as every other school
helps to support its yearbook, as director of publications I have never been able to under-
stand why the student body should treat our annual as its stepchild.
As usual, one of the biggest problems of the entire book was the arrangement of the
graduate section. Evelyn Welch, graduate editor, had complete charge of pictures and in
addition wrote an amusing class prophecy which included every High Senior.
joseph Kissel, organizations editor, supervised the photographing of clubs and
committees in the school and also wrote the copy for his section.
The games of our 1934 championship basketball team were recorded by Attilio
Ruggiero, boys' sports editor, who also wrote about all the baseball, track, crew, swim-
ming, and tennis events. As editor of the girls' sports section, Virginia Costa, herself an
athlete, did much to publicize her teammates.
Music and drama were taken care of by Gloria Stockhausen and Dorothy Fitzgerald.
Collecting baby and social pictures and writing about the social life of the term kept
jane Lathrop, editor of that section, very occupied. Drew Hewlings, also, successfully
edited his R.O.T.C. section.
Editing a humor section that is really humorous is one of the biggest jobs on the
entire staff. Gail Woodheld, however, proved her appreciation of the comical by arranging
and filling her section with many new ideas and spending many hours cartooning popular,
prominent, or peculiar students of the school.
Kenneth Bixler proved his ability as a business manager by producing the Radio
Star Show. The proceeds of this show added over a hundred dollars to the Telescope
fund. Advertising Manager Vivian Stout did her best to spur along the ad campaign by
offering free Telescopes to students getting 31215 worth of ads, or to any registry room or
club which filled its 35100 quota. Mrs. Grace Kendall's two salesmanship classes were the
only ones to take advantage of the latter offer. Circulation Manager Donald O'Neil saw
that these classes and every one of the other 1400 students who ordered books received
Eight editions of the Pendulum were edited successfully by Eileen Wiechers, director
of publications, and Richard Cushing, editor. Cushing deserves much credit as he not
only corrected all the stories for the paper but also wrote more articles than any one else
on the staff. K
Bill Glang also wrote more stories than were his duty so that every sport event would

ALILEOIS 1934 Varsity basketball team annexed its
second consecutive A.A.A. basketball crown by defeat-
ing the fast Lowell quintet, 14 to 12, on Friday evening,
March 2nd, at Kezar Pavilion. The Lion unlimited team won
every tilt up to and including the championship game with
Lowell, but was downed in the final contest of the Amateur
Athletic Association hoop season by Mission, who defeated
Galileo's second and third stringers 26 to 23 on March 9th.
Congratulations are extended to Coach Thomas De Nike
for turning out a championship team from the little "hold-
over" material from the previous year, although graduates from
the 130-pound team of last year filled in positions in cham-
All-city honors went to Captain Angelo "Hank" Luisetti
and Bill Mortola, who received first-team places on every all-
city selection. Luisetti, Galileo's sensational center who was
branded "best ever" in the prep league by a man who knows
how to judge "greatness,' in basketball players, Benny Neff, Lowell's casaba coach, was
selected for his all-around ability. Mortola was chosen for his shooting ability and his
great floorwork. "Chubby" Kotta and Dante Bravo were also given recognition as out-
standing players in the league.
GALILEO 14, PoLY 12
Playing their first game of the A.A.A. basketball season January 19 at Kezar Pavilion,
the Galileo Varsity hoopsters downed the hard-fighting Parrots 14 to 12. This game
was one of the most thrilling on the entire schedule, as it gave Galileo one of its greatest
scares of the hoop season. The Galileans took the lead, held to a 6-to-4 advantage at half
time, and ran it up to an 11-to-6 lead at the third period. Here Luisetti was banished on
personal fouls, and at this point Poly pounced on the chance to draw within reach of
victory. "jesse" james, nonchalant and effective guard for Poly, brought the score up to
11-10. But "Chubby" Kotta went to work, sinking a free throw and caging a beautiful
Held goal for three additional points to save the day for the Lions. Both teams exhibited
tight defenses. Galileo's was so strong that Poly could not pierce it consistently. The
Lions failed to cash in on many openings. james, with seven points for Poly, and Kotta
with six for Galileo, led all scorers.
GALILEO 32, ST. IGNATIUS 11
Coach Tommy De Nikels high-powered quintet had little trouble defeating the
green St. Ignatius five on January 31 at the Civic Auditorium, 32 to 11, for their second
league win. The Wildcats offered little opposition to the potential champions, scoring
only four field goals. At the end of the first period, Galileo led 6 to 0, 22 to 1 at half
time, and 28 to 6 at the end of the third quarter. Luisetti proved the big cog in the
Galileo victory, scoring 10 points as well as being the mainstay on the defense. Meagher
got four points for St. Ignatius, while Mortola and Lilot of the Lions got four apiece.
GALILEO 35, COMMERCE 17
Scoring 21 points in the first half enabled the title-bound Lions to trounce the
Commerce hoopmen 35-17 on February 9 in the auditorium. "Hank" Luisetti, Galileo's
star pivot man, turned in a sensational performance by rolling up a total of 18 points
in little more than 20 minutes of play.
I Page 54 I
The Lions got off to an early start, led 11 to 0 at the end of the first quarter, and
were out in front 21 to 4 at the half-time intermission. Continuing its spree, Galileo
increased its total to 32 points while Commerce had 11 at the close of the third session.
The North Pointers employed every man on the squad.
GALILEO 36, SACRED HEART 18
In the fourth game of the A.A.A. basketball season the Galileo Lions, after getting
off to a poor start, completely outclassed Sacred Heart's "Fighting Irishi' 36 to 18 on
February 15 at Civic Auditorium.
For a while it looked as though Sacred Heart might have scored a victory, but Billy
Mortola, sharp-shooting guard, started hitting the hoop for the Lions at the end of the
first quarter and tied up the score at 4-4. In the second period the Irish took the lead, but
the Lions came back to take an 11-7 advantage at half time. Then, in the second half,
Mortola started on another shooting spree, piling up a total of 20 points, thereby hanging
up some sort of record for the largest total of points scored during a prep game for the
last three years. The Lions ran wild in the fourth session, chalking up 17 digits, bringing
the count up to 38.
Frank Hawkins was high scorer for the Irish with five points to his credit. "Hank"
Luisetti caged two beautiful field goals, both in the fourth period. "Chubby" Kotta
"bottled upn Chris Korsoones, Irish all-city guard last year, throughout the contest.
Following the star guard step for step, the little Galileo forward held Korsoones scoreless.
GALILEO 28, BALBOA 12
Galileo's hoopsters put another quintet out of the title picture by swamping the
supposedly strong Balboa Buccaneers 28 to 12 on February 20 at Kezar Pavilion. The
Lions completely outplayed the defenseless Buc cagers from start to finish, to take their
fifth straight league win.
Galileo grabbed the lead to hold a 7-2 advantage at the end of the first quarter.
Two free tosses were the only points scored by Balboa in the first half 5 they trailed 16-2
at the intermission. In the second half, Ortez got the Bucs' only two field goals, while
the Lions ran their total to 28.
GALILEO 14, Lowiau. 12
Over 5,000 frenzied fans saw Galileols high-powered hoop machine cinch its second
consecutive A.A.A. hoop title by edging out a fighting Lowell quintet 14-12 on the
night of March 2 at Kezar Pavilion. Louis Bedoni, playing as substitute guard for the
Lions, sent the champions to glory with a beautiful shot from the side in the last few
moments of play.
Galileo took an early 3-0 lead, but Lowell managed to get ahead, with free throws
by Troppman and a field goal by Dowd, 5-3 at the quarter. "Hank" Luisetti tied things
up for a moment, Lowell pushed ahead, Rippon scored for the Lions, but Galileo trailed
8-7 at half time. The battle continued until the final minute of play with the Lions
behind 10-12, but Bill Mortola came through with one of the few set-up shots of the
night to tie the score at 12-12. An extra period loomed, but Bedoni tanked the ball that
gave the Lions their sixth league win and the prep championship.
GALILEO 23, M1ss1oN 26
Going into the final game of the season with the championship cinched, Coach
Tommy De Nike's Lion reserves lost to the last-place Mission quintet 23-26 on March 9
at Kezar Pavilion.
The Mission victory marred Galileo's would-be spotless record, but an explanation is
due. The seven men who carried the Galileans to titular heights did not play. Nor were
they on the bench. They were seated in the stands in street clothes.
It was a close game all the way, with Billy Glynn, Mission's sharpshooting center,
garnering 12 points to lead scorers. Thompson led the Lions with eight points, Lucchesi
got five, with Sartorio and Pezet getting four apiece.

HE Galileo unlimited and lightweight crews stroked their way to their third con-
secutive A.A.A. championship over Lowell on the Yacht Harbor course May 19
to complete a brilliant rowing season.
Going into its first league race on Saturday, May 5, the Lion Varsity crew skimmed
over the bay waters to an easy seven-length victory over Balboa.
On May 12, the unlimited oarsmen had their biggest scare of the year when they
met and barely edged out a victory over St. Ignatius on the Yacht Harbor course. The
Lion boat and that of the fighting Wildcats battled neck and neck nearly the full distance
of the course. At 200 yards from the finish the boats were even, but here Galileo spurted
forward, with their newly perfected sprint carrying them past the finishing post a scant
three feet ahead of the fighting St. Ignatius crew.
The following Saturday, May 19, again saw the Galileans use their long stroke to
advantage by whipping the Lowell oarsmen by three lengths to retain their A.A.A. cham-
Veterans on the 1934 championship crew were: Captain Ralph Law, Paul Thompson,
Lino Vanelli, jack Cowan, Peter Fay, Ian Ferguson and Tyler McHugh. The champion-
ship squad was composed of the following stalwarts: Port: Paul Thompson, stroke, Tulio
Simoni, Peter Fay, "Red" Moretti, Lino Vanelli and jack Cowan, starboard: Ian Fer-
guson, stroke, Tyler McHugh, Vasco Vanelli, Russ jugoleff, Captain Ralph Law and
Bud Thompson, jack Kent, coxswain, and Fred Campagnoli, pilot. Other oarsmen were:
Cushing, O'Neil, Caratto, Schaupp, Lamerdin and Tilley.
The 130-pound oarsmen boasted a victory over the San Mateo junior College "B"
team and a loss to the varsity of the same squad before meeting Balboa to make their
first league triumph on May 5. Galileo defeated San Mateo by more than eight lengths.
The championship race with Lowell on Saturday, May 19, was won more handily
than any previous one. Both crews rowed evenly up to the half-way post, where the
Lion babes pulled away with their accomplished long and powerful stroke to cut through
the water for a twelve-length victory.
LTHOUGH lagging into fifth place in the A.A.A. track and field meet on April 28 at
Kezar Stadium, Galileo again brought forth an outstanding performer in Angelo
"Hank" Luisetti, sensational all-city basketball star. Tied with Leaf of Commerce
in the high jump, Luisetti surpassed the S. F. high school prep record with a leap of six
feet seven-eighth inch, and also placed third in the broad jump event. The score of
the competition: Commerce 605, Lowell 30, Poly 20, Balboa 15, Galileo 6, St. Ignatius
5 and Mission
The Galileans' efforts on the cinder path might be termed successful for the year
1934, for after four years of repeated defeat at the hands of the San Francisco prep
tracksters, Galileo's unlimiteds finally overwhelmed Mission and Sacred Heart in a tri-
angular meet held at Kezar Stadium on April 11. The score: Galileo 70, Mission 492,
and Sacred Heart 212.
Leading the Lions in their surprise victory was Luisetti, who showed his versatility
by taking three first places in the field events. Leaping 5 feet 11 inches over the uprights
gave him his first win in the high jump. Luisetti's other victories came in the broad jump
at 19 feet 8 inches and in the shot put.
Another feature of the Galileo victory was the winning of two first places by the
lightweights. Cogliandro and Montesclaros, members of the 120-pound division, but
running in the unlimited class this meet, took first places in the 120 high hurdles and
220 low hurdles respectively. Four Lion babes, garnering 15 points for the unlimiteds,
were main factors in Galileo's victory.

HE 150-pound basketball team, defending champion in the A.A.A. league, was
toppled from under the 1955 crown by High School of Commerce, 20-15, on
February 9 at Civic Auditorium. Winning five out of seven games gave the Lion
Babes a tie for second place with the Lowell lightweights in the final league standings.
The defeat came in Galileo's third league game, and paved the way for the Bulldog cham-
pionship. Commerce, champions in 1952, were led to victory by Caine, who scored eight
points. The Lions' points were well scattered, with Kaneko being high scorer with three

The Lions won their fourth league game from the Sacred Heart quintet, 24-15, on
February 15 at Civic Auditorium. Galileo led at half time, 15-5.
Little George Kaneko proved the hero for the Lions in their 18-16 victory over
Balboa in their next contest on February 20 at Kezar Pavilion. Galileo trailed all the
way, but Kaneko scored two beautiful field goals, the tying and then the winning bucket,
in the last few moments of play. Cava, Lion pivot man, led all scorers with eight points,
Kaneko following closely with seven.
Trailing 15-4 at half time, the Galileo Babes staged a brilliant comeback to down
the favored Lowell quintet 26-25 in a thrilling battle on March 2. Bacigalupi and Perasso
got the winning buckets in the last 50 seconds of play. Perasso, Galileo forward, was
high with six points as the North Beach team cinched second place in the final light-
Galileo, an overwhelming favorite in the final league tilt of the 1954 season, was
completely outclassed by the Mission Babes, 18-9, on March 9 at Kezar Pavilion, thus
going into a tie for second place with Lowell.
AKING the singles and doubles in the annual Academic Athletic Association tennis
tournament on Friday afternoon, April 15, at the Golden Gate Park courts, gave
Galileo High School its first unlimited division championships in its history. Phil
Bush, Galileo's southpaw representative, won his way to the championship by defeating
Ray Bjorkquist of Poly in the unlimited singles finals, 6-0, 6-4. Bush, one of the most
colorful players ever to represent the North Beach school, slid through all competitors
without danger of tasting defeat. Incidentally, Bush played in the semi-finals and finals
of both singles and doubles in the same afternoon, and was victorious in every series
The play in the unlimited doubles competition was all Galileo. Phil Bush and Emil
Relat defeated Charles Osborne and Ray Bjorkquist of Poly in the semi-finals, and then
met jack james and john Davis, also of Galileo, for the unlimited doubles title, winning
6-0, 6-2. The complete unlimited tennis squad consisted of Phil Bush, Emil Relat, jack
james, John Davis and jack Dibble.
Both singles and doubles titles in the 150-pound class went to Poly. Representing
Galileo in the lightweight division were: Kenneth Koch, Donald Lamont, William
Phippen and Peter Haas.

A.A.A. swimming championship with 39 points on May 5 at Fleishhacker Pool.
The Lions' closest competitor was Lowell with 28. Poly finished third with 24
points, Mission had 10, Commerce 6 and St. Ignatius 1. Galileo was victorious in only
two first places, one by Chateau in the 100-yard breast stroke, and the other by the 300-
yard relay team, but second and third places cinched the meet for the Lion swimmers.

walked away with the honors in the lightweight class, amassing a total of 65 points,
followed by Poly with 43, Lowell 34M, Commerce 13, St. Ignatius 8, Mission 72 and
In the 130-pound class, Jimmy Ransohoff, Galileo churner, smashed the old A.A.A.

ECAUSE of the curtailed schedule during the Spring Term,
the fair athletes of Galileo not only had to hold their
athletic program away from home, but also had to dis-
pense with a few Spring sports and the traditional Girls' Field
Day. In spite of these handicaps, a vigorous season was passed
and keen enthusiasm was shown by all who participated in the
limited assortment of activities.
At the first rally of the term held on February 1, Barbara
Latz was elected head yell leader with Florence Brown as her
assistant. Both girls were selected because of marked ability in
extracting peppy yells from the feminine student body.
The Girls' Athletic Association, under the direction of the
Girls' Athletic Board, is the governing body of girls, sports.
The board consists of officers and managers of the various
teams. It was successfully executed this term under the able
leadership of Nancy Love, president, Florence Valenti, vice-
president, Kimi Nambu, secretary-treasurer, Mildred Hebgen,
representative, jean Haber, riding manager, Angele Polidori, tennis manager, Betty
Kessing, swimming manager, Eileen Wiechers, Telescope representative, Barbara Latz,
head yell leader, Virginia Costa, Pendulum representative, and Noreen Ames, vice-
president of the student body.
BLGCK "G" IGCIETV
The Block "G" Society is composed of girls who have merited 21 points by par-
ticipation in sports. The membership is steadily increasing. There are now 27 proud
possessors of the much-coveted Block Jeanette Eller, versatile sports leader, was
awarded a "star',, the highest athletic award a girl can achieve.
The society held its semi-annual initiation early this semester in the girls, gym. An
election of officers for the Spring Term was held during the luncheon following the initia-
tion. Those elected were: May Morioka, president, Barbara Latz, vice-president, Kimi
Nambu, secretary-treasurer, and Leona Ensign, representative.
Galileo's equestrienne-minded young ladies were seen every Monday and Tuesday
astride their favorite mounts trotting along the paths of Golden Gate Park. The advanced

Alice Scala, Marjorie St. Clair, Barbara Wear, Beverly Rosenberg and Barbara Tullis.
The directors of Funston Playground organized Play Day which was held every
Thursday at the playground near the school. This gave the Galileo girls an opportunity
to play the Spring sports that were eliminated from the school program such as volleyball
and baseball. If attendance to Play Day were regular, points toward a Block HGH were

Churning the water for a seventh consecutive championship, the girls' swimming
team added another laurel to Galileo's many on May 17, scoring 53 points to win
over 25 scored by Lowell, nearest competitor.
Although they were handicapped by a small turnout, the girls practiced diligently
every Thursday at the Crystal Palace Baths to prepare for the friendly inter-high school

VEN as the hardy frontiersmen braved the unknown dangers of a wilderness and
planted there the roots of a new world, so are members of todayls generation, bear-
ing the brunt of the culmination of age-old stupidity, colossal blunders, and gross
ignorance, in a sense modern pioneers. Unemployment is the confusing wilderness of
this age through which youths must slash their way. As unexperienced graduates, they
seldom find places in the cogs of the world's machinery. And, instead of biting their nails
in vain rebellion, wisely they have flocked to universities and colleges, unconsciously
turning to a remedy, education, to make them wiser and saner beings in paving the way
across this jobless, chaotic era toward the well-being of the intelligent citizen in the
ordered civilization of tomorrow.
If pioneers they may be called, here is a gallery to be honored, representatives among
the graduates of Galileo. On the campus at the University of California, these Galileans
stroll: Ed Dougery, Burr Overstreet, Kimio Obata, Jean Bredenbeck.
Among the campus population of some ten thousand people at the University of
California, Galileo has been very capably represented. Former Galileans have participated
with success in the various fields of scholarship, politics, journalism and athletics.
Six of our fold joined the cap and gown parade on May 19 at the Greek Theatre
in Berkeley. Those receiving the various degrees were Henry Bach, Barbara Britain,
Donna Erbes, Harold Jacobsen, Walter Lehman and Katharine Torney. Congratulations
are doubly in order for Miss Torney upon the event of her marriage to Mr. Tom Coakley,
popular orchestra leader of this city.
Prominent in lower class politics during the past year were Norris Hill, Bernard
Harris, Fred Boucke and Bob Bonner.
Frank Kahler served on the Sophomore managerial staff of the "Blue and Goldu
while Patty-Lew Ofiield was a member of the Sophomore editorial staff of the "Daily
California". Andy Salz, remembered as a humorous poet of the first order at Galileo,
has been one of the chief contributors to "The Pelican", campus "wisecrack" publication.
In the athletic fields, Galileo was represented in the major sports of crew, basketball,
baseball and tennis, and also in the minor sports of boxing, swimming, water polo and
fencing. Charles Schuster, Le Roy Briggs and Ward Klink pulled a trio of lusty oars on
the California crews. Ed Dougery won his numerals as a member of the Freshman basket-
ball team and Fred Boucke earned an appointment as junior basketball manager.
Walter Haas was another numeral winner because of his efforts on the Frosh tennis
Dick Westdahl surprised the home town folks by proving himself a very efficient
pugilist. Dick fought in the lightweight class on the varsity boxing team and ran up an
imposing string of victories.
Kimio Obata, famous for his art work at Galileo, was a member of the fencing team.
Herrie Moore was the lone representative in aquatics, being on the water polo team.
Virginia Borland, formerly literary editor of the Telescope, Robert Harris, vale-
dictorian of the Class of june '33, Robert Haslacher, Beatrice Haslacher, vice-president
of the student body, june '33, Alan Mendelson, Bob Schott, Hamilton Lawrence, vale-
dictorian of the Class of December '32, Frances Fordg Marshall Dill, and Ernest Sultan,
"farm out" at Stanford. Gordon Mallatratt, former student body president of Galileo,
takes time out from studies at Stanford to win athletic recognition. Frances Ford, graduate
editor of the june '33 Telescope, and member of the Scholarship Federation, was singu-
larly honored by being chosen one of the Stanford women to serve at the Mothers' Club
May fete at Los Altos.
Barbara Bredenbeck, Marion Kemble, jean Wrinkle, jane Lewis, Ruth Sundberg,
Leland Woodfield, Phil Hull, Irv Sullivan, jack Pine and johnny Schweiffier are among
the Galileans enjoying the view at Marin junior College.

Down on the Peninsula several former Galileans have been leading the students of
San Mateo junior College in both curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The oliices of president and treasurer of the student body were occupied by Bob
Garibaldi and jack Dougery, both of whom are former Galileo students.
On the athletic field several of our former students were represented. jack Clarke,
Frank Adamich, jack Dougery and Clyde Healy were members of the undefeated San
Mateo football squad, while Dante Andriotti starred on the baseball diamond. Byron
Doyle played a brilliant game at forward on the junior college basketball team.
Students that hail from Galileo who received diplomas at this Spring's commence-
ment included Norm Luna, Thurston Knowles, Bob Barthol and jack Dougery.
Clyde Healy was elected treasurer of the Freshman Class and also served as manager
of the track team. Bob Garibaldi managed both the football and the basketball teams.
Iames Hamrock was elected to serve as president of the Sophomore Class for one
year commencing next Fall at San Francisco State Teachers College. Bill Graziani, for-
merly a member of the. Galileo Scholarship Society, was chosen treasurer of the same
class. Other Galileo graduates attending the college include jenny Mirande, Alan Bell,
George Mirande, Eileen Canavan, Rose Berger, Nino Cattuzzo, Dolores Harris, Elizabeth
Shanowsky, Dorothy Murray, Louis Ray, Viola Ariani, Evelyn Donati and Helen Shinn.
Salutatorian and vice-president of the june 1933 Class, Virginia Friedman, communes
with professors at Pomona College. Anne Kovelas, member of the Scholarship Federation,
attends Dominican College and writes for the journal. Gertrude Rasmussen, former girls'
sports editor of the Telescope, Blanche Bates, Carol McCloskey and Lucille Irvine answer
roll call at business colleges.
Signal achievements were made by other Galileans. "Babe" Scott, advertising man-
ager of the june 1933 Telescope, recipient of the Meritorious Service Ring, versatile
athlete, winner of a scholarship to Golden Gate junior College, will be editor of the
"Gateway" and vice-president of the student body there next term. Dorothy Milliken,
editor of the june 1932 Telescope, winner of a scholarship to Mills College, is the newly
elected editor-in-chief of the college yearbook.
jack Ruggles, graduate of june 1932 attending U.C., is being tested for the screen
while "Muzzy,' Marcellino makes his screen debut in "Twenty Million Sweethearts", and
june Clyde, after completing a number of motion pictures, is taking a part in the college
comedy riot on the stage, "She Loves Me Not". l'Tiny" Cervelli, June 1933, is heavy-
weight boxing champion at the University of San Francisco. Dorothy Baker is entering
nursing in july. Betty Stecker is helping her sister teach school in the Philippines. Marion
Davis at the age of 18 completes her Sophomore year at California. She will attend
business college and art school during the summer.
Vagabondia has lured these alumni: Birgit Hansen, formerly active in the Girls'
Block "G" Association, is now traveling in Norway, Ernest Sultan is vacationing in
Holland, Charles Rosenthal's destination is United States after a trip to South America,
Bill Roberts is loafing on a dude ranch.
Experimenting with the adage that two live as cheaply as one are Frank Adamich,
Florence and Eleanor Bednarski, Ruth Cook and Sheila Chandler. Florence Randall,
former humor editor and cartoonist for the Telescope, is married to a San Diego business-
Few are the names on pay rolls. Initiative, it seems is the best paymaster. joe Rosen
leads his own orchestra at various functions. Claire Anker gives piano lessons. Annette
Straus is experimenting with a dress section in a department store. Arvid Norman, Mario
Aguirre, Americo Feliziani, Virginia Gee, Tom Lawson, "Red" Stevens, jean Berryessa,
and Rena Rosenthal punch time-clocks.

By DREW HEWLINGS, December '54
WO outstanding events made the Spring '34 term an
active one for the members of the Galileo regiment. The
annual Honor School inspection, the most important of
the two events, was held in the school stadium on Wednesday,
Captain G. K. Crockett of the 30th Infantry, Dr. Edwin
A. Lee, superintendent of schools, and Mr. joseph P. Nourse,
Principal, reviewed the regiment and later inspected the men
Company A, under the command of Captain james Kindt,
gave an exhibition of physical drill while Company E, under
the command of Captain Philip Bush, was selected as the crack
company. After thorough inspection, the theory classes were
quizzed and the equipment and training facilities looked over.
Mr. J. P. Nourse, who takes great pride in the activities
of the Reserve Officers Training Corps and who has played
an important part in the founding of the first R.O.T.C. unit,
was on hand to welcome Dr. Lee and Captain Crockett at the opening of the ceremonies.
The annual Commandant's Cup Competition, the event in which the various high
schools of San Francisco compete against each other for high honors, was held at the
Civic Auditorium on Friday evening, May 25th.
Galileo was represented by the crack platoon under the command of Captain Philip
Bush and the physical drill team under Major john Steinhart. Although the Galileo units
did not place in any of the exhibitions or drill downs, they made an excellent showing.
Captain Walter Mann, Commandant of the San Francisco R.O.T.C., who instructed
the officers in theory, and Sergeant Malcolm Green both deserve unlimited credit for the
time and effort they contributed in preparation for these events.
Colonel Ian Ferguson was selected to head the regiment for the Spring Term. His
regimental staff was composed of Lieutenant-Colonel Wallace Ruggles and Captain-
Adjutant Horace Foster.
The two battalions were under the command of Major Donald Holser and Major
The company commanders were: A Company, Captain jim Kindt, B Company,
Captain joel Stein, C Company, Captain Sanford Lowengartg D Company, Captain
Mathew Lebenbaumg E Company, Captain Philip Bush, and F Company, Captain George
The band, always an important element of the regiment and indispensable on
Wednesday parades, was under the able supervision of Mr. Thomas Kennedy and Mr.
Herbert L. French.
The officers of the band were: Drum Major, Kenneth Bixler, Band Captain, Mervyn
Wagenheim, Band Leader, Vesley Wagner, and Captain, Melvyn Friendly.
The rifle team, composed of members of the National Rifle Association, placed
fourth in the inter-high school competitive rifle match. Galileo was represented at the
match by Cooper, Cushing, Wagenheim, Ruggles, White, Kindt, Shostac, Foster, Webb,
Metzger, Stewart, Moore and Dallam.
The social side of the R.O.T.C. was climaxed by the semi-annual Saber Club dinner-
dance which was held in the French Room of the Palace Hotel on May 5th. Sergeant
Malcolm Green and Mrs. Green were the guests of honor. This affair, with more than
45 couples attending, proved to be one of the most successful assemblages of the school

T IS not stretching the fact to say that "The Valiant", one
of three plays put on by the Little Theatre Club in Galileo
Auditorium, presented an example of superior amateur act-
ing. The performance, which had Ian Ferguson in the role of a
condemned man as its centerpiece, brought tears to the eyes of
an audience of friends and admirers who were held thrill-
bound during the exciting presentation on Friday evening,
Galileo has always played an important part in high
school dramatics and maintained this position this term in spite
of the irregularity of the schedule. The success of the produc-
tion of the term plays this year, which were under the direction
of Miss Helen Swinton and Mrs. Esther Esau, has never been
equalled. Instead of following the usual custom of presenting
a three-act play, three one-act plays were given: "The Valiant"
by Holworthy Hall and Robert Middlemass, "Gas, Air, and
Earl" written by Bertram Bloch, and "The Spongeu.
"The Valiantl' is the story of a condemned man who conceals his identity. He is to
be hanged shortly after midnight. The part of james Dyke, the condemned man, was
marvelously portrayed by Ian Ferguson. Father Daly, the prison chaplain, was revived by
Charles Coleman. Dan, a jailer, by John Ghio and the attendant by Bill Stabler. The
part of Josephine Paris, a girl about eighteen and sister of the prisoner, was played by
"Gas, Air, and Earl" is a frivolous comedy. Mrs. Plummer, a woman who says she is
fifty-five years old, looks ten years younger, and is trying to become younger still, is
trying to get a rich husband for her daughter, Elinor, played by Diane Neville. Kitty
Carson, who is really Barbara Newberg, a friend-but not so much a friend-is a rich
widow looking for a husband with a title. Boggs, alias Brown, a chauffeur, at the outset
of the play is to marry Elinor. In reality Boggs is a famous novelist-Roger Cavendish
by name. Comical and complicated situations develop throughout which make it interest-
ing. Mrs. Plummer, the kindly but stupid woman, was interpreted by Roxanna Spencer,
Boggs, Harry Cohen, and the lawyer, Leonard Polley.
"The Sponge" centers around a high-strung prima donna, named Nina, who con-
tinuously had her own way, her daughter, Katherine, whom she had known for only two
months, and Ralph, the accompanist, The part of Nina was taken by Jane Doran, Kath-
erine, Virginia Burnett , Ralph, Elmer Schiro, Bettina, Denise Burns, Alfredo, William
At the meetings of the Little Theatre Club, interesting programs were arranged for
the members of the club by the oHicers. The ofiicers for the term were: jack Loupe,
president, Helen Hall, vice-president, Helen Huckins, secretary-treasurer.
The members of the Footlights Club also enjoyed a successful term under the leader-
ship of Evelyn Miller, president, Sheldon Walter, vice-president, and Barbara Grey,
secretary-treasurer. They were supervised by Mr. Fred Koch and staged the semi-annual
show for the Natural History Club on june lst.
Those taking part in the show were: Helen Hall, Barbara Gray, Ian Ferguson, David
Allen, Patricia Wheeler, Harrison Brown, Olga Giusti, Nick Novak, Gladys Flores,
Beatrice Laidlow, Leonore Anderson, Jack Laughner, Antonette Laiolo, Camille Mor-
reggio, Tully Simoni, Dorothy Kovelis, jim Kindt, Frank Shawn, Don Holser, Bill
Muller, Roslyn Kissel, Lucille Muther, Stella Angelenich, Ruby Swensen, and Evelyn
Miller was the director of the show. ,
The purpose of the show is to raise money for the Natural History Club Scholar-
ship which puts a Galileo science major student through college.

EOPLE the world over turn to art as an expression of their life. Whether it be
drama, painting, sculpture, music, or any other form of creative art, that is the
way in which all races are able to express their emotions and imagination. Even the
ancient peoples had some form of art. Simple as it was, it remains a symbol of their life-
their civilization. Because of these facts, art is, and will continue to be, an important part
of everyone's life.
By this same method, Galileo art students have endeavored to express their ideas.
Throughout the term, they have been busily at work creating designs, posters and stage
scenery for the various school activities, which have demanded the cooperation of the art
department. Although handicapped by less time, they have succeeded in fulfilling these
demands willingly and satisfactorily. Much thanks is due Miss Haidee Tobriner who,
day by day, guided the students in their work. Only through her efforts were many tasks
accomplished which otherwise might never have been started.
The theme of the journal offered a wide field to the artists, since it included pioneers
of all industry and cultural life the world over. Through the pages of this yearbook are
scattered memories of men and women well known for their importance in the world's
civilization. The most outstanding ones have been chosen to symbolize the various phases
of student life at Galileo and consequently the far-reaching ends of every continent have
been bound together in a record of Galileo's activities for the Spring Term of 1934.
Margit Larson, editor-in-chief of the Telescope, together with the helpful aid of
Evelyn Welch, graduate editor, planned and worked with the rest of the art students in
carrying out the theme of the book.
An Indian design was chosen for the cover of the journal not only because it repre-
sents the first civilization in the North American continent, but also in honor of Lowell
High, our very welcome and cooperative guest of the term. The beautifully created draw-
ing was made by jean Nuber, who for several terms has distinguished herself by her
work in the art department. In the next few pages of our book we advance from Indian
civilization to our present-day life. In both the Senior and Organizations Hyleaves, history-
making men of the ages have been represented. Then we have a glimpse of the Greek
athletes in the sport page created by Angele Polidori. In this drawing there are the famous
Greek wrestlers and the well-known ancient Coliseum. The lining, which was made by
Raul Minomora, combines the various periods in the history of California.
As we go from one age to another, important incidents are brought to our minds
through drawings by Ernest Brede, Frances Riedy, Evelyn Welch, Mary Van Pelt, Bill
O'Brien and Fred Lamerdin.
Aside from their work on the Telescope, these students have carried on many other
One of the most outstanding events in which the art classes participated was the
Winter Sports Poster Contest, conducted among all the senior high schools in San Fran-
cisco. One of Galileo's own, Ernest Brede, walked off with first prize-Yosemite. Angele
Polidori and Barbara Hammond came through with honorable mention. Another com-
petition in which Galileo took part was the Humane Poster Contest. Raul Minomora took
one of the seven prizes won by students in the state of California, and Shirley Nielsen and
Helen Brogna received honorable mention.
Many other posters were made by the poster class advertising such social activities as
the Radio Show, Senior Movie, P.-T.A. Dance, Natural History Club show, and sports
The art students have played a large part in the activities of Galileo this term and
their record is one of hard work and success. Their accomplishments have been greatly
appreciated by all the students, and admired by many persons throughout San Francisco

PPRECIATION of music denotes culture and attunes sense to the spiritual harmony of
creation in all its beauty. Obstacles in the path of happiness have been removed
through the ages by such immortals as Jenny Lind and Enrico Caruso. The world
today is becoming more and more music conscious, in its hope to reach greater heights of

A program was given on the evening of Tuesday, April 24, in Galileo Auditorium,
in celebration of Education Week. Parentsg and teachers were entertained with vocal
selections by the Boys' Glee Club and Mr. Herman Hein from Galileo Evening High
School who sang "Still Wie der Nachtn.
A quartette which sang over the radio on April 28 proved to many listeners that
Galileans know the meaning of music. ,
The term concert given in the school auditorium during Music Week was a great
success. As this was the first evening concert to be given, a large number of parents and
teachers took the opportunity to see the progress of Galileo students in courses of music.
Included in the fine program was a presentation of Ravel's "Bolero" by the Galileo
orchestra led by Miss Keohan, piano selections by Alla Sviridoff, vocal selections by
Antonette Laiolo and Josephine Lombardi, and Gounod's inspiring "Send Out Thy
Light" sung by a mixed choir. Miss Geraldine Watt, teacher of history, delighted the
audience with her charming voice when she sang "Un Bel Di" and "You Dear and I".
Also a 'cello solo was rendered by Gerome Anker and a violin selection by Beatrice
Laidlow. Gerome Anker was accompanied by his talented sister, Claire.
The Music Club had a favorable semester under the leadership of President Anto-
As the shorter school hours meant very few dances and entertainments, the Galileo
Jazz Orchestra played only for special occasions such as Senior Day, rallies and motion
pictures. However, Galileo now boasts what no other school can: a dance band which
plays regularly over the radio. The well-known Galilean, Bill Clifford, and his KGGC
orchestra, are gaining fame and recognition by way of the air waves.

The third semi-annual Radio Show was held in the school auditorium May 4 at
9:30 a.m. Kenneth Bixler, business manager of the Telescope, obtained many radio
notables. Don Thompson, the well-known "Get Associated with Ethylf' announcer, acted
as master of ceremonies and Bill Clifford, a student of Galileo, with his KGGC orchestra
supplied the music.
The program was as follows:
1. Popular melodies by Bill Clifford and his orchestra included: fab "Hallelujah", fbj
"A Thousand Good Nights", fcj "True',, fdj "Without That Certain Thingn, and
feb "Music Makes Men. The vocal selection was sung by Eileen Clifford, his sister,
known as Elaine Carnigie on the air.
2. Lee S. Roberts rendered his famous songs, "Smiles" and "Patches", and told how he
got the ideas to write these songs.
.Bill Clifford and his orchestra: faj "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" and fbj "Carioca".
Senator Frankenstein Eishface, famous radio comedian, tried to convince the audience
why they should elect him governor.
5. George Taylor brought three of his gang: Mort Werner, former Galilean, Charles
Drayer, tenor, and the one and only hotfcha blues singer, Charlie Carter.

Wiechers, Lois Toso and Virginia Costa, who had their first taste of sorority life by
spending the two nights of the convention at the Chi Omega sorority house, Margit
Larson and Evelyn Welch stayed at the Pi Omega Pi house, joe Kissel learned something
about fraternity life at the Kappa Nu house. Richard Cushing and Bill Glang were also

HE proverbial "fast and furious" social-go-round with
its attendant pleasures was suspended this term for pos-
sibly the first time in Galileo's comparatively short
existence. ' .
However, Noreen Ames and her social committee, com-
posed of Chairman joel Stein, Wallace Ruggles, james Kindt,
Ian Ferguson, Leona Ensign, julia Powell, Grayson Hinckley,
Harry Cohn, jack Loupe, Beverly Gregory, Eileen Holtzen,
Virginia Costa, Sanford Lowengart, jane Lathrop, Harriet

sun shone" by aiding the P.-T.A. in the supervision of a Val-
entine's Dance held on Friday evening, February 9th, in the
girls, gymnasium. The members of the latter organization
who planned this event were Mrs. F. N. Gregory, Mrs. A. J.
Ferrogiario, Mrs. Edgar McHugh, Mrs. Annette Bachmann,
Mrs. Walter Brooks and Mrs. O. R. West.
The locale of the junior Day luncheon was the school cafeteria. The "local colorn
which was, incidentally, rather rosy, was provided by a number of talented members
.of the class who had performed at previous entertainments. First on the program was
'Antonette Laiolo who sang the popular "Love Thy Neighbor". Using this title as a
theme, Antonette introduced the rest of the performers who were Tully Simoni, Ramona
Shorb, Roxanna Spencer, Harrison Brown, Warren Ringen, Bill Dunne, Pietro Pardini,
Josephine Lombardi, Bill Seineke, Albert Martin, Don Holser, Jim Kindt, Bill Muller,
Frank! Shawn and june Cox. With the exception of a moving picture presented under the
