IE I AraJinr 1 H 3 1 Qiariptta Btglj rlynnl Dedication To the spirit of adventure, of discovery and daring:, personified by the sea, we dedicate our 1931 El Arador— to the romance, the glamour and mystery in the rough roar of the tides and sparking foam, in the raving tempests and after-calm, the whistling sea- winds and screaming gulls, the shining, tossing, dark waters and plunging ships. To the sea ' s perfect order and harmony we aspire, and for " the will to do, the soul to dare " that we may strive, discover, and attain. Kindred FIRST PRIZE STORY One can never think of her apart from the sea — and I, who knew her well, can never smell the salt tang of the ocean or hear waves beating upon the shore, but her memory, sharp and poignant, grips my heart. She was quite glorious when I knew her first. At any rate, I thought her glorious. She lived in a small fishing town in New England. Her father, a person one never saw, was first mate on a whaling vessel, and her mother was a nonentity. She had quantities of brothers and sisters, younger than she, who were also nonentities. Her name was Seena Owen. My uncle, a scientific man, had rented a cottajfe in this village, rather removed from any super-abundance of human- ity, to study crabs and jelly-fish and sea-things for another of his ponderous, and uninteresting scientific volumes. I was fourteen at the time, and my kindly, be-spectacied and ab- sent-minded uncle, who had taken a fancy to me, asked to have me accompany him. I was eager to do so; 1 wnuld undoubtedly have a good time, if only by reason of his ab- sent-mindedness. Boys of fourteen can usually find a variety of things to do when their sole guardian is an absent-minded, kindly, be-spectacled scientific man. When I first saw Seena Owen I considered her beautiful. I rather compliment myself on my daring originality in this, for every one else in the village thought her very unpreposs- essing in appearance. She was tall, she was lank, and she was divinely graceful. She carried herself like a queen, but all un- consciously. Her hair was a pale, light color, very long, and she usually wore it unbound, flowing down her back. I thought of sea-weed. Her eyes were a clear, translucent green, sea- colored. Her face was sullen, brooding. There was a curious, intense aliveness about her, a white flame burning behind her eyes. I noticed her first when I accompanied my uncle on a little walk down the beach, in search of sea flora and fauna. We were about three miles from the village. Seena was there, standing on the sand, the sea wind whipping her dress back, blowing her hair. Her queer green eyes, unsheltered from the sun and wind, gazed off across the unquiet waters. She Has beautiful thus-1 stopped short to look at her. She should have been a figure carved on the prow of some gallant sea-going vessel—a Viking ship. I had an uncanny feeling that that was what she had been once. She was perfectly oblivious of us, and my uncle was oblivious of her He would have thought noth- ing of seeing a sea-nymph, or a mermaid, or Ai hrodite aris- ing from the waves. We went quietly past, behind her, but while my uncle was searching for sea life, I stole back concealed among the sand dunes, and watched her. She was still as I had seen her first, still gazing out to sea. I wished passionately at that moment that I were an artist, to paint her as I saw her— to immonalize that brave figure. She seemed kindred to the sea. Suddenly she turned and looked sharply at me. I knew that she knew 1 had been there, watching her. She did not smile. She turned away again and started walking toward the village. I had offended her, I had intruded upon her sacred solitude, her communion. Later, queerly enough, we became friends. I do not under- stand it, unless perhaps it was because I knew her a little better than any one else ever had. Only a very little better, how- ever. Mine was the only human companionship — if 1 may call it that — that she had ever known. But, somehow, she was not dependent upon human companionship. She, herself, 1 felt, was not quite human. She did not need sympathy, or understanding, or friendship. She needed nothing but the sea; she was dependent upon that — it was her life. One reason, I think, that she liked me — better, tolerated me was that 1 was content to sit beside her when she com- muned with the sea, quietly, not breaking the charm. She was never conscious of me then. Sometimes her lips would move; she would repeat something rhythmically under her breath. Perhaps she was repeating a poem. Perhaps the im- pression came to me — she was chanting an old rune in some strange tongue. When she was younger the people of the village thought her merely " a queer little tyke. " Now she was a young woman, and they began to look upon her with suspicion. I heard it whispered that she ■as a witch. Old beliefs, old super- stitions, die hard in little, out-of-the-v ay New England villages. One night 1 shall never forget. iVIy uncle was putting his notes in order, and would remain lost to the world until, per- haps, the next morning. There was a storm far out. The sea was terrible; there was a strong wind. Seena and I silently walked up the beach. She seemed to be glorying in the raging of the wind and sea. VVe stopped when we reached the top of a high cliff, directly over the water. It was the wildest night 1 had ever known. The sea seemed actually, diabollically, human, rav- enous, reaching. 1 hated it. Soena gloried in it — in its power, its strength, its invincibility. VVe stood silent. I had the impression that if 1 spoke to her she would not hear me . Thinking back on it, it seems we stood thus an age. Everything--the sky, the sea, the wind, was black and terrible. Seena was inspired; she was triumphant. She was not a woman; she was a creature of the sea. For the first time 1 was afraid of her. She seemed so elemental— so ageless— so inhuman. The villagers ' words echoed through my mind— " She is a witch. " Then, almost unnoticeably, she stepped forward, toward the edge of the cliff— toward the tossing, menacing, black sea. A cold, unthinking terror gripped me. My impression did not form into thought before I could think I had seized her arm- I felt surely that she had meant to throw herself into the seething, eager waters. At my touch she turned, and her eyes were wild and black and stormy— like the sea. Her eyes held me. I knew that she could shake off my puny human strength lightly, if she would. She was, like the sea, omnipotent. Then the moment was gone. Her intent had passed from her, leaving her rather bewildered, dazed. " We ' d better go home, " I said, awkwardly. She did not answer. We w ent back silently, as we had come; but there was a difference. She seemed more human than ever before, in her bewilderment. Now 1 knew that she did not understand herself, that she was, for the first time, even slight- ly concious of herself. And I knew that she was alarmed and frightened at what she found. I was rather reluctant to see Seena again the next day, but I was also curious. I wondered whether she would be changed. As it happened, I did not see her the next day. My uncle, having collected enough material, folded his tent.s and silently stole away, taking me with him. I never saw her again. Some years later I came back to the village, purposely to see her She was not there- Her mother told nie that she had married, and living in Nebraska. The news stunned me. Seena, the child of the sea, living in Nebraska! It was ludicrous and ridiculous and unbelievable, and I would not believe it But when I realized it, when it became true tome, I saw the bitter tragedy. It would have been better, 1 thought, if she had cast herself into the sea that stormy night. I know she would have lived then — now she is dead. Seena away from her sea! I hope never to see her again- I want no other picture to take the place of the vibrant, living figure in my mind. Seena torn from her sea— her life! If she had been as I knew her, she would not have gone. She changed, I know. That night changed her; it revealed her to herself, and the realization frightened her. She went, thinking to break the bonds that bound her to the sea. She has found, I am sure, that it is impossible. Living things must fade— living things must die - - but what a cruel death ! I cannot quite under- stand why such people are born but to die. But perhaps they they do not die. Perhaps there is something of them that exists, in a way we do not know, afterward. — Throla Bach ' 32 Faculty and Administration Page Nine Mr. Whitely ' s Message rpHE THEME of the 1931 El Arador, I am told, I is to be the Sea and adventures incident to " sailing the main " . The stories and the cuts found throughout the book refer to the beauty and the pleasures of the sea as well as to its hardships and dangers. But whether on water or land we can see only PS far as the horizon ; beyond that we know nothing. Some by reason of inexperience and little faith may turn back at the evil omen of a red sunset. They are soon discouraged and frightened, but the man with a stout heart, a strong resolve and a belief in himself mav be a Columbus.

THE SEA GYPSY 1 am fevered with the sunset, I am fretful with the bay, For the wander-thirst is on me And my soul is in Cathay. There ' s a schooner in the offing, With her topsails shot with fire, And my heart has gone aboard her For the Islands of Desire. I must forth again to-morrow ! With the sunset I must be Hull down on the trail of rapture In the wonder of the sea. —Richard Hovey My Sea Castles FIRST PRIZE POEM I shall build my castles up out of the sea, With its wealth of silver and gold. With the blue o f the sea shall be builded my walls, Frescoed walls with patterns in greens. And all the stairs shall be pathways of silver, Leading me on in my dreams With the silvery forth of the foam I ' ll landscape the gardens of my home. The gold of the sands Shall be my roof, Gathered from far off lands. And each grain shall its story tell, Mayhap of the Orient and china silks of jade, Or Italy and golden music flowing, Or the wild unconquered beauty of Africa, Or Spanish lads who their maidens serenade. Who knows - but each in turn shall tell to me. As I sit in my castle beneath the sea. The story of his own home. But none shall be so wild and free As my own blue castle beneath the sea. -Lucy Delight S ' 3I An Old Boat SECOND PRIZE POEM Where did it come from, that old boat on the sand . ' Have its white old broken planks seen adventure. ' Have they felt the gay tripping of light feet. Or the solid stalls of fishermen.? As the waves reach out for its bleached, half gone hulk, It keeps its stories of adventure and sinks deeper in the sand. — Rfbekah Rapier IV 32 Classes Piige Twenty-Nine MR.

Summer seas near shores begirt with palm. We were in the Spanish Main, sailing south venturing into the romantic seas of our earth, where pieces of eight are vaguely supposed to be the ruling currency. We steamed through one of these romantic seas, the Caribbean, under a tropic sun, fanned always by the trade winds. Never had I seen water more blue. It seemed a fit background for the schools of flying fish which go skimming away across the waves, scales gleaming in the sun and grace unspeakable in every movement. We passed lovely and peaceful days, watching the sea, the fish, the distant shore. As I awoke one morning I became aware of an incredibly splendid star. It was low on the horizon, and it glared like an enormous headlight in the first flush of dawn. Over in the East could be seen masses of tumbling mountains — the extreme northwestern end of the Republic of Panama. The island of my destination lay before us with its strip of yellow sand followed immediately by the dense growth of tropic jungle. One or two rocks, fantastically carved by centuries of wind and wave, stood up out of the water. Bearing down on us from this strange place was a piratical- looking sloop all loaded down with gypsy men. It seemed they were having a political meeting and the effect was very queer. All were gesturing madly and speaking rapidly as only a Span- iard can. ' Viva! Viva! " could be heard as the craft rounded our boat twice. This was the type of inhabitants of Bocas de Toro where I was to stay for the next month! The lagoon where we an- chored revealed numerous islands, all story book islands in their loveliness, and their immediately surrounding hills, cov- ered with dense jungle. As I bade " Adios " to my friend on board, the sun went down in a glow of sea-gold and crimson. Darkness came overthe lagoon—the remote stars appeared— and then the moon, trailing a rippling scarf of silver on the tropical sea. To me it meant mystery— adventure on a strange island in a still stranger sea. — Firginia KhtUr S ' 31 Fine Arts Page Forty-Nine " Submerged " A very different and difficult piece of work was attempted in " Submerged " , a one-act play with a cast made up entirely of men. The play dealt with a tremendo usly dramatic situation — that of a submerged submarine containing six men, each a sepa- rate and distinct character, who will all perish in the submarine. Such a situation requires skillful, inspired, and delicate handling, and the cast, directed by Mrs. Walker, worked it out extremely well. Ro ' bert Holmes Brice, the Coward Glenn Parsons Dunn, the Lover Raymond Coy Jorgson, the Bully George Forbes Shaw, the Dreamer Douglas Osborne Eugene Donnelly Neb, the Cockney McAndrews, the Commander " Widow by Proxy " " Widow by Proxy " was one of the most outstanding plays ever produced by Gardena High School. Its success was due to the fast moving plot of the play, the clever lines, the excellent work of the cast and the stage arts departments, and the capable direction of Mrs. Walker. The leads, handled in a, truly professional manner by Phyllis Harvey and Jack Roc ' helle, were supported admirably !by the other memlbers ' of the cast. Gloria Grey Phyllis Harvey Dolores Pennington Helen Margaret Garner Stephen Pennington Jack Rochelle John Pennington Clifford Hall Sophronia Pennington Mary Alice Dwyer Angelica Pennington Betty Blanchard John C. Galloway Douglas Osborne Madame Gilligan Laurine Cope " Strongheart " " Strongheart, " the W ' 31 Senior play, is a powerful presentation of race barriers, in which William C. DeMille combines gay college life with tragedy. The leads were taken by Albert Boehlert, as Strongheart, and Carroll Spear as Dorothy Nelson. Others in the play were Marjorie Owen, Verne Wenker, Harold Black, Douglas Osborne, Clifford Hall, Fred Burns, Robert Dickson, Ruby Cummings, Esther Frazer, Howard Dunham, Clare Walk|uist, Anna May George, Mabel Robinson, Gwen Moreland, Glenn Parsons, Russe!l White, John Avedesian, Margaret O ' Haver, John Zaharis, George Forbes. The story is that of an Indian, Strong ' heart, the son .of a chief who has been sent to Columbia University (by his tribe, that he may return and impart the wisdom of the East to his own people. At college he falls in love with Dorothy Nelson, who returns his love. Everyone is aghast that an Indian should dare propose to an American girl, and Dorothy ' s brother strongly opposes the match. The play ends with a note of tragedy when Strongheart is called back to his people and is forbidden to bring Dorothy with him.

This club is a social as well as instructive organization. Last semester, a Hallowe ' en Masque Ball, and this semester a beach party and a dance were enjoyed by all the merribers. The officers were: Ethel Periiy, Glenn Parsons, presidents; Virginia Kistler, Mamie Gennette, vice presidents; Mamie Gennette, Hugenia Snider, secretary-treasurers. With Mrs. VoeJker and Miss Hagen advisers, the club is growinig every year. The Drama Club Talent! That ' s what the Drama Club is noted for. The six one-act plays given this year— " Sparks, " " For the Love of Pete, " " Pietro the Foolish, " " Submerged, " " The Wonder Hat, " " Alibis, " — all proved very clever and brought out new students in drama- tics. " A Widow by Proxy, " and the W ' 31 Senior play, " Strongheart, " were very suc- cessful with well chosen casts. The S ' 31 play, " The Royal Family, " was a lively comedy, with a good group of seniors to make up the cast. The officers were: Mary Conner, Raymond Coy, presidents; Mamie Gennette, vice president; Paul Sturdivant, Martha Flewelling, secretary -treasurers; Mrs. Walker, adviser. The World Friendship Club " Friendship Encircling the Globe " is the motto of the World Friendship Club. The members find it enjoyable as well as educational to visit and hear of different peoples of the earth. Imaginary journeys in the form of afternoon meetings were taken this year to Ireland and Argentina at which speakers who had visited the respective countries spoke, and the kinds of food eaten in those countries were served. The officers were: Dorothy Murphy, Robert Holmes, presidents; Elizabeth Herzog, Virginia Kepner, vice presidents; Anita Albertoni, Helen Honda, secretary- treasurers; Miss Frieibel is the adviser. The Japanese Club This is only the second year that the Japanese Club has been in existence; yet it has become one of the most popular clulbs in school. Under capaible officers and with Mrs. Whedon adviser the club has met with success in everything that it has attempted. Several socials were enjoyed by the members during the fall and spring semesters. On March 7, the cluib took charge of part of the assembly. The officers were: Setsuo Masaki, Iwao Nakayama, presidents; Kathleen Kobata, Yoshiko Suzuki, vice presidents; Yoshiko Suzuki, Tadashi Kitano, secretary-treasurers. Page Fifty-Six Page Fifty-Seven The Library Club The real purpose of the Library Club is the study and appreciation of books. This organization meets as a class under the direction of Mrs. Leonard, but it has been found unnecessary to elect officers. Students who intend to enter library work as a career are developed tiy this training to a point where they may assume greater res- ponsibilities. The Dancing Club During the past year an interesting group, the Dancing Club, met every Friday seventh period, under the direction of Miss Bayliss. The club was conducted as a gym class and the girls dressed in Grecian costumes. Although the club is a new organizaticn. Its activities were many. The girls danced for the G. A. A. aud call, for the " Little Sister " garden party and for the May Day program. The managers, members of the G. A. A. executive board, were Norma Cain the first semester, and Edith Matfchewson the second semester. The Girls ' Athletic Association The G. A. A., one of the foremost clubs of the school, has as its ideals good sportsmanship and clean living. This year the past presidents have formed an oi-- ganization known as the 2G3A. The G. A. A. has had a full calendar for the two semes- ters, with five parties, spreads after major sports, the traditional initiation ceremonies, playdays at Torrance, Narbonne, and Gardena, and the senior breakfasts. The success of this organization is due to its adviser. Miss Stephan, and to the executive boards which are as follows: Carroll Spear, Agnes Anderson, presidents; Beverly Cain, Mary Alice Dwyer, vice presidents; Jean Robertson, May Yamauchi, recording secretaries; Josephine Ahlberg, Thelnia Cramer, corresponding secetaries; Mildred Moss, song leader; Phyllis Harvey, Muriel Smith, yell leaders; Evonne Eckert, Josephine Ahlberg, swimming managers; Virginia Kistler, Lorene Groppe, tennis managers; Mary Conner, basketball manager; Rebekah Rapier, hockey manager; Grace Luce, speedball manager; Agnes Mae Eaton, ibaseball manager; Lucille Hawkins, pianist; Betty Blanchard, Rebekah Rapier, chaplains. The Secretaries ' Club Already well-known, the Secretaries ' Club was formed only last semester and in- cludes girls who work or who have worked in Miss Stephan ' s gym office. The purpose of the club is to train efficient office girls and to teach them to referee games. Last semester a miniature golf party, and this term a ping pong tournament were held. The " G. O. P. " , a newspaper commenting on the girls and on social activities, is edited twice weekly. Officers were: M ary Alice Dwyer, Lois Sibley, presidents; Winifred Higgins, Mary Ellen Foster, secretaries. Piigc Fi fly-Eight Piige Fifty-Nine The Stage Crew The stage crew has been ve-iy busy during the past year. Without its capable aid, under the direction cif Mr. iVrclLsndon, our programs ' and plays would not have been as successful as they were. The ciew has bean responsible for the sets of the following plays: " Widow by Praxy, " " Old Lady 31, " " Strongheart, " " Miss Nelly of N ' Orleans, " " Submerged, " ' The Royal Family, " and numerous one-act plays. The members of this year ' s crew were: Velman Winkle, mgr.; George Forbes, assistant mgr.; Lloyd Whit3, chief electrician; Walter Wy:off, head flyman; Clarence Flint, asst. flyman; Dick Van Herpen, head property man; Wallace Erbe, Don Higgins, caipenters; Louis Wakefield, Arthur Gannatte, Robert Holmes, shifters. The Fire Crew The fiie crew, whose aim is to protect the students and school property in case of fire, was well supported this year by the student -body. Members of this organiza- tion are the following: Lloyd White, ch.ef; Harry Coiea, Eugene Donnelly, Ray Foster, Dick Van Herpen, Paul Stu:divant, Glenn Parsons, Raymond Coy, Glenn Haslam, Earl JHorley, Paul Phebus, Melvin Cooper, George Frye, Jack Swanson, Paul Tracy. Mr. Loomis is faculty adviser. This group is divided into five squads, each to see, at the sound of the fire bell, that all students are clear of the building assigned to it. The record timei for clearing the buildings is thii-ty-five seconds. The Press Club During the past few years the Press Club, aUhough it is not very well known, has performed many services for the school, including printing the " Lar.k " and school pro- grams. Its object is to further the interest and knowledge of printing. Mr. Miller, printing instructor, intioduced the Step System with certain require- ments for each step. After passing step twenty, students automatically become mem- bers of the Benjamin Franklin Club. The present officers of the Ben Franklin Club, chosen by their position on the Step System, are: Edward Gibson, president; John Ayala, vice president; Roy Warner, secretary; Paul Tracy, treasurer. The Varsity Club The Senior Varsity iClub is composed of boys who have earned their letters in one of the major sports. Due to the keen competition in these sports, it is considered an honor to be eligible for membership in the Varsity Club. Officers were: Lloyd White, Ray Toomey, presidents; Paul Sturdivant, Raymond Coy, vice presidents; John Zaharis, Vernon Harper, secretaries. The aim of the club is to promote a better spirit in athletics. Page Sixty Page Sixty-One The Debate Team The World Court was the subject of the inters:holastic debate which took place last semester with students from Washington, Riis, Leuzinger, Bell, Jordan, and Gar- dena participating. Harold Black and Verne Wenker upheld the negative side, while Marjorie Owen and Takeko Ogo upheld the affirmative. There was much enthusiasm among the students this semester on the question: " Resolved That Capital Punishment Be Abolished. " As there were many students who tried out for the team, a debate squad was chosen instead of two teams. Teams chosen from this squad entered a round-robin debate with Leuzinger, Washing-ton, and Bell competing. Miss Roripaugh, adviser, deserves much credit for her enduring support and help. The Commercial Club The Commercial Club has conducted many activities during the past semester. An initiation party was held in Fehruary which everyone enjoyed. The assembly of March 20 was sponsored ,by this club, in which the play " To the Swift " and other entertainment was presented. A weenie bake was held on Whitely Field. The officers were: Thelma Cramer, Betty Blanchard, presidents; Mary Alice Dwyer, Martha Flewelling, vice piesidents; Betty Blanchard, Rose Avedesian, secretary- treasurers. Miss Perry is the faculty adviser. The Spanish Club " La Esperanza " has had an interesting year. The membership has been larger than usual, reaching fifty-five in numlber. Composed of the students who have had two or more years of Spanish, this club is purely a social organization. Christmas was celebrated in the form ' of a dance, and on March 6 another party was held. The officers were: Vernon Harper, Agnes Anderson, presidents; Ruth Showalter, Dexter Carpenter, vice presidents; Agnes Anderson, Paul Sturdivant, secretaries. The Athenian Society The Athenian Society is an organization to promote higher scholastic standards. Under the capable excutive boards of ' 30 and ' 31, many enjoyable and interesting meet- ings were held. Representatives of this society, with Mrs. Fairbanks, adviser, attended! various scholarship hanquets held at different schools. Officers were: Virginia Kistler, Mildred Moss, presidents; Yoshio Kobata, Beverly Cain, vice presidents; Mildred Moss, May Yamauchi, secretary-treasurers; Beverly Cain, Theola Beech, publicity managers. Page Sixty-Two Page Sixty-Three Page Sixty-Four THE SHIP OF RJO There was a ship of Rio Sailed out into the blue, And nine and ninety monkeys Were all her jovial crew. From bo ' sun to the cabin boy, From quarter to caboose, There weren ' t a stitch of calico To breech ' em — tight or loose; From spar to deck, from deck to keel, From barnacle to shroud. There weren ' t one pair of reach-me-downs To all that jabbering crowd. But wasn ' t it a gladsome sight. When roared tht deep-sea gales, To see them reef her fore and aft, A-swinging by their tails. Oh, wasn ' t it a gladsome sight. When glassy calm did come, To see them squatting tailor-wise Around a keg of rum ! Oh, wasn ' t it a gladsome sight, When in she sailed to land. To see them all a-scampering skip For nuts across the sand ! — IValttr De La Mare Satanic Sea Old ghastly ocean, how you rant and rave; You churn and swirl through rock and cave, You tear and lash, you dash and pound, While through the eroded caves resound The echoes of your roar. Sometimes you ' re deceitful and make us believe You are peaceful and quiet, and much praise receive; How calm and beautiful you are today As your breakers comb, and you throw your spray Over the rocky shore. But you ' re only bluffing; you haven ' t fooled me. Your glassy stillness is but malignity. You scheme and plot; your hate is brewing, You are gathering strength and your malice renewing, For your fatal blow. For tonight if I slip to your shores, I shall see That your beauty is gone, and you ' re once more to me A treacherous and thundering enemy. You ' ll foam and you ' ll froth and you ' ll dash out your hate On the rocks below. — Dorothy Murphy S ' 31 The Phantom Ship O ' er the black of the resting sea, A phantom ship is sailing. The sails are white in the starry night; Shining gold is the railing. High masts of gold, bulk of silver With lights of precious stones. The ship glides over the quiet waves, While inky silence tones. — Virginia Kepntr S ' 31 - ' - --u . . ' e- % P(T f Sixty-Nine Coach Freeman ' s Message Coa h McGinnis ' Message Competing in a league of eleven schools, most of them much larger than our own, Gardena ' s athletic teams have done well, fought hard, and kept up the high standard of sportsmanship of for- mer years. None of the teams were un- defeated and yet all gave their ijest; more cannot be expected. One feature of the past school year was the large percentage of students en- gaged in athletics. Of almost two hun- dred boys eligible for athletics, about one-fourth were engaged in interscholas- tic athletics most of the year. In the in- terclass activities about two hundred took part. This speaks well for Gardena ' s athletic future. Howevei ' , it is necessary for all loyal Mohicans to put their shoulder to the wheel in order that Gardena may take her proper ' place on the athletic map — the top of the heap. Gardena has just passed through one of the leanest years in regard to athletic material that she has experienced for a long time. The Big Boys, for whose size Gardena has always been more or less famous, disappeared with the graduating class of 1930, and there were none to take their places in 1931. In spite of the lack of material we have not fallen so far that we cannot come back, and the coming year will find the Mohican teams again dangerous con- tenders for the cups. The present crop of athletes who com- pose the four representing teams are lighter men but faster than their pre- decessors and will come back in the fall with a year of competition and exper- ience to their credit. With them, I think, will come the school spirit and success we missed this season. Jordan 0, Gardena 12 The Mohicans took Jordan down the line to the tune of 12-0 in the first Marine League game of the season, played on the Jordan field. Forbes scored the first touchdown with an eight yard plunge over tackle. The second touchdown was scored by Captain Toomey, who received a short pass for the tally. Burch of Jordan played well for the losers. Captain Toomey supplied the team with a handicap when he received a sprained ankle early in the fourth quarter. Gardena displayed superiority throughout, and showed all the effects of good coaching. Page Seventy Washington 26, Gardena 6 The powerful Presidents smothered the outweighed Mohicans on Whitely Field under the score of 26-6. Gardena fou ght hard, but could not overcome the twelve-pound-to-a- man handicap. White and Forbes were the best on either team but were handicapped by light linemen in front of them. Forbes tallied our only touchdown with a 24-yard gallop over end. White kicked well throughout the game. ' In spite of the loss of Captain Toomey, injured in the Jordan game, Gardena did exceptionally well. Bell 0, Gardena 19 Gardena ' s flashy pigskinners took Bell High ' s Eagles in stride as they pointed for the all-irnportant Narbonne game. Although minus the services of Captain Toomey, the Mohicans had no trouble in outclassing Coach White ' s team 19-0 on our own field. We were unfortunate, though, on several occasions, losing the ball by fumbles close to the Bel ' , line. Wilfred Worsham, substitute end, played a good, clean, " heads-up " game in this encounter, being in almost every play. Russell White played his usual sen- sational game, causing critics to predict that he would be quarterback on the All-Marine League team. Page Seventy-One Leuzing-er 7, Gardena 13 Leuzinger, the newest addition to the Marine League, provided un- expected opposition for Gardena in the fourth league encounter. Coach McGinnis started the second string in this struggle but it failed to live up to expectations. Sturdivant was the main offender, failing to punt on two out of three occasions. This left the string in a bad way, but, due to the excellent work of White and Forbes, Gardena finally eked out a 13-7 deci- sion. In this encounter, Forbes showed a fast pair of heels to the oppo- nents, proving his eligibility for a half-back berth on the Eleven Marines. Riis 24, Gardena With two outstanding backfield men and a perfect line, Riis ' Vikings pounded out a 24-0 verdict over the Mohicans on Riis ' field. Although lucky on two of its scores, Riis was easily the better team and deserved to win. Van Herpen and Toomey played steady defensive games on the ends and very little yardage was made by Riis ' speed demons around them. Gardena resoi ' ted to futile passing attacks in the last quarter, but it did not avail against the stone wall of Riis ' defence. Narbonne 12, Gardena Gardena was outclassed in the last tussle of the season by the gal- loping Gauchos of Narbonne 12-0. This annual struggle, always bitter, ended the year in a clean-cut Narbonne triumph. The old rivals fought it out on that ancient Mohican battleground, Whitely Field. Not a little of the credit for our defeat goes to Coach Comrada of Narbonne. J ? f V W Page Scvcnty-Two Baseball Coach McGinnis started the baseball season of 1931 with a green squad and four returning lettermen. The returning lettermen were: Cap- tain Harper, Parsons, White, and Sturdivant. The squad shaped up well with Toomey, Owen, and Darnell, catchers; Sturdivant, Parsons, and Worsham, pitchers; Cooper, first base; Walker and White, second base; Harper, short; White, third base; Forbes and Sturdivant, left field; Parsons and Walker, center field ; Van Herpen and Haslam, right field. At the time this goes to press the boys have already beaten numerous city schools in practice struggles and have beaten El Segundo in the first league game. Page Seventy-Three Varsity-Lightweight Basketball Gardejia ' s Varsity and lightweight basketball teams have finished another successful season, with some i-eal games to their credit. The Varsity team was led by Clifford Hall, who also led in high point honors with 78 points. The following men composed the varsity team: Hall, Harper, Cooper, Davenport, forwards ; Zaharis, Gray, Wakefield, Mun- son, guards ; Laws, center. Haslam led in points for the lightweights, who were Ito, Patterson, Morley, Oyama, forwards; Haslam, White, Takeuchi, guards ; Sturdivant, center. The first games were played with Bell, Gardena losing both. Although the Varsity again went down to defeat with Banning, the lightweights won. Gardena won both games from Washington, the Varsity by 32-9, the lightweights by 24-20. Narbonne was the next victim for the Varsity by a 23-10 score, while the lightweights lost to the old rivals. The season closed by playing the Riis team, which won the cup. Both of our teams were deifeated. The Varsity game, very close, was not won by Riis until the final whistle was blown. At the half, the score was 22-19 in favor of Gardena. Captain Hall began sinking baskets all over the court but it wasn ' t enough to overcome the strong opposers. The game ended with a score of 49-33, and with Hall taking high point honors. Closing the season, the Varsity and lightweights both won two and lost three games. I ' agc Scventy-Fuur Page Seventy-Five " C " Track This year ' s class " C " team was one of our best. Although it won all of its preliminary meets but one, it could not qualify enough men in the finals to win the championships, placing third behind Narbonne and Jordan. Tsukashima and Holmes were high point men of the team. Two records were made by the class " C " . Tom Tsukushima set a new record in the " 660 " to run away from the field. Our relay team, the fastest in the history of the school, ran a beautiful race in the finals so that it tied with Jordan for a new Marine League record. This team was composed of Bob Holmes, Sam Ishihara, Masao Morita, and Tom Tsukashima. " A " Track With competition much keener in the league than ever, the varsity track team started the season with earnest practice. Coach Freeman had but three lettermen returning from last year ' s varsity and a few new pros- pects. Although only six men made letters, the team worked hard and gave a good account of itself in the meets. George Frye was high point man of the team, closely followed by Gray. Frye ran the 100, 220, and broad jumped. Troy Putman participated in the same events. Bob Morrow ran the 440 and was one of the three men to get in the finals. James Patterson and Rusty Young ran the 880. Jack Dawson and Roy Warner ran the mile. Le Roy Gray and George Anderson high jumped and ran the high hurdles. Paul Phebus put the shot. The team was ably managed by Swede Nielson. Most of these men will be back next year to compete for Gardena High. Gardena athletes of the past still hold two Marin© League records. Al Willoughby ' s record in the milei has stood competition for three years, while Hueston Harper ' s record in the shot put will not soon be broken. Tennis With but two lettermen back from last year ' s championship team, chances for another championship team seemed very uncertain. However, the team practiced hard and earnestly and defeated the strong El Segundo team by a lop-sided score. The team then lost the second match to the Washingon High team. The match was very close, the score being 3-2 in Washington ' s favor. This match was a hard one to lose as it will probably decide the championship. The team was somewhat handicapped by the announcement that a man could play only one match. This hurt our team as Laws and Dorse, two good singles men, had to team up in the doubles. The other positions on the team were taken by Don Patterson, who plays first singles; Elson Stafford, who plays second singles; and Don Atkinson and R. Dorse, who play second doubles. The team still has a good chance for the championship if it wins all the rest of its matches. Golf The golf team enjoyed a very successful season this year. In the league matches to date, the team has lost one match to Bell and won one from Torrance. The members of the team are : Crites, Sturdivant, Tepper, Wakefield, Parsons, and Sawyer. The team is managed by Ray Toomey and coached by Coach Freeman. I ' tigc Sei ' cnty-Six ¥ " Page Seventy-Sei ' en Girls ' Sports Sports have risen to the most prominent place in girls ' activities. Under the management of Mary Conner, basketball started the girls ' athletics with much enthusiasm. That basketball was one of the most im- portant of se ' jsonal sports was shown by the large turnout of girls which made it possible tO ' have three teams in each class. First, the games were played for the school championship. The two remaining teams were the Senior Blue team and the Senior White team, the former coming out victor. Then games wcire played for class championship. The keenest competition was shown when the school " champs " lost to the Sr. White team. The Red team was the Junior champion and the Sophomore champions were the Black team. With Rebekah Rapier as manager, hockey aroused much interest among the girls. After many exciting games, the Seniors were the victors. The speedball season was successfully carried through by its manager, Grace Luce. Much to the surprise of everyone, members of the Junior team were the school champions. As this goes to press, baseball has just started with Agnes Mae Eaton as manager. Since the girls were all anxiously awaiting this sport, baseball is expected to be another important season for the girls. Unlike other years, tennis interested many girls. Virginia Kistler and Lorene Groppe were the tennis managers. Evonne Eckert and Josephine Ahlberg were the swimming managers for the first and second semesters respectively. As summer approaches, it is hoped that more girls will take interest in swimming. Under the direction of Miss Bayliss, the dancing class has been very active. The success of the May Day Festival was due to the beautiful dan- cing of its members. Three playdays have been enjoyed by the girls this year. One was at Narbonne on October 1, where the girls won in volleyball and tennis. On December 3, the girls were invited to Torrance, where the g irls were victors in speedball and tennis. On April 22, the Gardena girls were host- esses to San Pedro, Narbonne, and Torrance. This playday was another one of the G. A. A. ' s successes.

They searched high and low through every corner of their ship. Suddenly a strange door loomed up ahead. What ho! Now for something new! They searched every nook and cranny of the new room. In a little cubby under a port hole, Popeye Pete found a map. Woven through the many strange signs and symbols was this: " Gull ' s Nest Island - 20 leagues from mainland. 50 paces west to skulls; 20 paces north to palm tree. Climb palm and sight for tallest tree. Half way between these two trees you will find a spot marked with a cross. Dig arms lengths deep for hidden treasure. " " Yoho! my hearties — away with you! Man the ship! ' ' cried Captain Jollv Roger. Quickly they dressed for a des- perate trip — Bowie knives, cutlasses, full pirate regalia, De;id eye Dick with the large black patch over his left eye. Through rough waters, shipwreck, and storm they forced their way, and after many mishaps landed on the rough shores of Gull ' s Nest Island. With all their weapons, and loaded with picks and shovels, they started for the skull. It was an matter to find the palm tree from there. At first the island seemed to be unin- habited save for the wild and ferocious animals that beset their path from every side. Suddenly about ten paces to the north they sighted a cannibal village. The cannibals were pre- paring a feast and did not see our bold band. " Up and at them, men, " called the captain, ' they are only ten to our one. " After a short but fierce and bloody battle the cannibals «ere routed. Dead-eye Dick climbed the palm tree. Near the top, being met by a queer animal with fierce little beady eyes and long sharp claws, he came down in a hurry. They attacked the trees with picks and shovels and drove him out. Dead-eye Dick climbed again and found the other tree. Now they crept very slowly and quietly towards the cross; it might be guarded. Finding it unguarded they began to dig. " Careful, men. " Something solid warned the captain. Cautiously they pulled from its hiding place a large black box. Opening it carefully, they found a horde of round golden cook- ies, carefully and secretly hidden by the pirates the day before- — I nnif Gorham S ' 3fi TLOTTIMG ' .
