POLLICH'S MESSAGE A principal new to a school, who sincerely hopes to contribute to the welfare of the youth of the school's community, must visualize his services in terms of years. A principal who plans to establish and direct a functional program of education in any school must content himself with devoting his first year to: making a careful study of the interests and needs of the community, including the students, teacher personnelg program of studies and activities, the attitudes of the parents in regard to what the school should do for their childreng the needs for improvement and betterment of school plant and equipmentg the maintenance of an adequate program of educational activities while such a study is being made. I have enjoyed a most happy and profitable year in my attempt to do at Gardena High School the things pointed out above. Perhaps the most pleasant and satisfying experience of the year rests in the many fine acquaintances and the grand feeling of mutual confidence resulting there- from. The confidence on the part of the students, parents, and teachers with which I was welcomed into the field will be an everlasting joy and inspiration throughout the years to come. As a result of this spirit of confidence bestowed upon me, a new comer in your midst, and from the marvelous cooperation rendered in making me acquainted with the interests and needs of our students, there is evolving, slowly but surely, at Gardena High School, a sound educational program for the future. Not a one-man program, but a program developed cooperatively by parents, teachers, and students. In all of the enthusiasm generated in anticipation of the joy and pleasure to be shared by those of us who will participate in guiding and bringing to fruition this evolving program, there is one discordant note. We regret that we will not have at our right hand the Class of Summer '39 to assist us in making the undertaking more pleasant and successful. These fine young folk, however, will ever be loyal to and at the service of their Alma Mater-Gardena High School -RAYMOND POLLICH. Page six MR. RAYMOND POLLICH Principal Page Seven MISS CRUMP'S MESSAGE Be kind and thoughtful of others, and toler- ant. This is the message I would bring to every boy and girl in Gardena High. So long as the world shall last there will be friends to help you when you are burdened, to laugh with you in your joy, to inspire you to greater accomplish- ment and to rejoice with you in your success, if you are kind and thoughtful of others, and tol- erant. Sincerely, LA VETA CRUMP. Page Eight MISS LA VETA CRUMP Girls' Vice-Principal Page Nine MR. HOU1'f'S MESSAGE The youth who stands out among his fellows is the youth who accepts responsibility for char- acter and service. A V feeling of responsibility brings a spirit of cooperation which works for the success of the group as well as for the success of the individual. Sincerely, GEORGE DANIEL HOUK. Page Ten MR.

Page Thirty-six S'39 PROPI-IECY I, the famous Mad- am Mona Dillar de Zandra, am gazing in- to my faithful crystal ball hoping to get E '- some highlights as to jwhat the Senior Class in' of Summer '39 will be Q doing in 1959. . . Ah-h Ah-h . . . there is a ghost of an image in the ball now .... it is coming nearer, clearer, nearer .... Ah, at last, the vision is plain .... There is a mass of blue . . . water, . . . yes, it is an ocean of water. And what is that in the distance . . . a ship? I see it coming closer. Now I can hear music, voices, laughter. There must be a party on board. Yes, the owners of the beautiful S. S. Tango Gambling Boat, Frank Steers and Chris Zaharis, have taken a night off from their legal occupation to give a party to a group of their distinguished friends. Two familiar personages are leaning over the rail on deck, engaged in an absorbing conversation with a handsome gentleman. Ah-h . . . I see that it is Connie Williams, June Ussher, and Aubrey Gilliland. In the cocktail lounge, talking over old times, I see Miss Ramona Bathrick, who is now teaching English in Gardena High School and living alone among her six cats, three canaries, and two dogs, Miss Doris Mae Slye, who is the bubble dancer for Earl Carol's new show, and Mr. Lloyd Hoving, who is butler to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Crist. Over at the bar is the "tender," Frank Mauro, busily mixing coca colas and malts. Tom Winchester is assisting him near by. KI didn't recognize them at first, with their starched shirts, bow ties, and buttoned coats.l Just around the corner is Jay Dee Anderson, who is deeply engaged in a sales talk to Bob Gunderson. CI think it concerns the buying of stock in the Albert Gotchal Dog Biscuit Company.J Ah, now I see three intelligent gentle- men sitting in the drawing room, absorbed in conversation, with their ties off and coats unbuttoned. One of them is Dr. William Somers, a great psychologist, re- sponsible for the discovery of the fourth division of the atom. Also there is Profes- sor Eugene Black, criminologist, and Dr. Elmo Meister, world famous chemist, who was just awarded a Nobel Prize for con- tributing to civilization a perfected artifi- cial brain. Near by is seated the distin- ipished play-boy, Eddie Kronberger, with argaret Silva and Nelda Shiffer, both g 'a bedecked in fox furs. I see Delphine Piglia, world reporter for New York Sun, inter- viewing the well known artist, Miss Donna Miller, who has just returned to the United States after studying twelve years in Eu- rope. The program of entertainment for the evening appears in my crystal ball and I see many familiar names. The beautiful Miss Muriel Miller tops the list with a solo. The four "Ritzy Ritz Brothers, Allen Rod- armel, James Boyd, Charles Ruiz, and Richard Ayala are to harmonize in several selections. Miss Bernice Tucker, famed actress, is to give a comic reading. Two other familiar names for solos are the charming Miss Rosemary Droegemueller and Mr. Manuel Aldapa. Miss Lorraine Erickson, famed critic of stage, screen, and radio, now makes a grand entrance into the drawing room. As Jimmie Suzuki and Yoshino Tachibana follow her in, the lights all over the ship suddenly go out. I feel that something strange is going to happen. Yes, I'm sure of it. A woman screams for help. The lights are forced back on by the head electrician, Samuel Augustus Potts, to find a very richly dressed gentleman lying in the middle of the room with a red handkerchief around his neck. Dr. Anne Van Oppen, who hap- pens to be on board with her assistant, Betty Spaugh, comes forward to examine the man. Further investigation shows that he is the distinguished Mr. J. R. Putnam, manufacturer of the "Glass Brick Com- pany." The guests are in a turmoil over the attempted murder, but the appear- ance of the well known detective trio, Sho Kojaku, Goichi Hirayama, and Jun Ko- jaku, put them all at ease. The excitement has also attracted the ship's two chefs thats and alll from their quarters, Robert Crader and Frank Cree. Near by, with Wesley Adams, I see Elaine St. Onge checking over her many sparkling jewels. Alice Schaeffer, a most charming hostess, is coming forward to assure them of their safety. Akiko Tashiro is trying to calm Yoshiko Toshima, who apparently fainted during the excitement. Now I see the sup- posed-to-be-dead man I J. R. Putnam! run- ning madly after the fire extinguisher, it looks like he is putting on one of his clown acts. But, oh . . . the image in the crystal ball is fading away. It is all foggy . . . now it is gone, . . . gone. But look! It is coming back .... No, it is a different picture .... I can no longer see the boat. I see buildings instead . . . many buildings. They look like a school . . . V Page Thirty-seven S'39 PROPHECY Gardena High School. My instinct tells me that there is to be an Alumni Baby Con- test. That must be true for I see a full car driving up to the curb now. A lady is getting out. It looks like . . . yes it is . . . Mrs. Leo Pitts the former Jane Rawson. Those six little children trailing along behind must belong to the Pitts family. They are named after their former school mates, June Rollman, Jean Blain, Ray Kincade, Le Roy Bain, Charles Gorham, and Marjorie Von Muegge. Judg- ing from the direction every one is going, the meeting must be in the auditorium. There I see the former Pauline Wynn, dressed stunningly, with her little ones, and talking to Mrs. Wiley. Phyllis Lucas, still as youthful as ever, has just joined her old pals in the far corner. She has remained single all these years, just con- tent with keeping a home for stray cats and pups. Mrs. "Bud" Smith CMarjorie Brownl has returned for the reunion from the Sahara Desert, where she and Owen were living, trying to escape the evils of the world. The former Margaret Ander- son, who is now the First Lady of the land, is talking to Mrs. Richard Rush IJackie Mottl. It seems that Richard is following a successful career as house- keeper while Jackie is working in Eas- dale James' "Miracle Insane Asylum." Mrs. Frank Garst, once Ardath Vickers, with her set of twins, is still leading her husband a gay life. Former Mary Stephen- son is quite proud of her husband, Ted Kimberling's position as Secretary of War and also of their three blue-eyed little girls. Former Misses Florence Taylor, Mary Dor Cooper, Hazel Croutch, and Marjorie Schuerman are in deep conversa- tion over their homes, husbands, and chil- dren. I couldn't forget Mrs. Arthur Over- man CRuth Burdickl and Mrs. Glynn Burns CNorma Sowersl, for they are still madly in love with their husbands. Mrs. Sakaye Ishihara, the former Mary Take- mura, proud of her husband's position as Japanese Ambassador to the United States, is talking to Mrs. Harold Noguchi CDoris Shigakil. Mrs. Jack Stephan, the former Allene Hunter, garbed in the lat- est fashion, is hurrying over to join Mrs. Fred Scanders Knee Kristine Freelsl . With all the smart clothes and gay colors, it looks more like a Fashion Parade than a Baby Contest. Miss Adair Osborne, mis- sionary to Mexico, is one of the judges, the others are Misses Edith Wallis, Bessie Nagohori, Helen Rasted, Clara Angood, and Pauline Arnold. The prize for the prettiest baby was awarded to Mrs. Bill Taguwa lTomiko Fujii! and wasn't she proud. The prize is now being awarded for the smartest baby, but the image in the crystal ball is fast fading away. Now it is gone . . . gone. Nothing is returning . . . that seems to be all.

Eighty-four who Page 1: ARMIN HANSEN "Before the Wind" by Armin Hansen. N. A., was selected by the class of Sum- mer '39 as its parting gift. The artist, recipient of numerous honors and awards, has attained recognition in both America and Europe as a painter of merit and dis- tinction. Mr. Hansen is well known for his delineation of fishermen and their boats, of the wharves and the sea-its rocks and coastlinesg for much of this painter's fame rests on his original and powerful interpretations of ships. Although his parents were born in Den- mark, Armin Hansen is a native of San Francisco. He is the son of H. W. Han- sen, a famous painter of Western fron- tier days. As a pupil of Mathews and Grethe, Armin Hansen studied at the Royal Academy in Struttgart, Germany. He painted for six years in the North Seas and in Belgium, but later identified himself with the life of flsherfolks on the Monterey coast. Back of all his work is his great love and knowledge of the sea. Arthur Millier has said of Mr. Hansen that he is "an artist of whom California may be proud." His awards include: Prize, International Exposition, Brussels, silver medals, Panama Pacific Expositiong silver medals for drawing and painting, San Francisco Art Associationg first Hall- garten prize, National Academy of De- sign, Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce prize, Los Angeles Museum. These are but a few of his many honors. The class of S'39, wise in its choice, brings to our collection a name well known among America's great painters, and one recognized as a member of the National Academy of Arts. - Page Eighty-tive 'ff' 'O' X Page Eighty-six THE ART EXHIBIT The senior class of 1919 began what has become a tradition, rich in artistic value. The eselection of an original paint- ing, as a parting gift by the graduating class, was the suggestion of Mr. Whitely. This selection, made after the seniors had visited art galleries and studios in South- ern California, was "The Valley of Santa Clara," by Ralph Davidson Miller. The following year, 1920, Jean Mannheim's "On the Road to San Gabriel" was chosen by the graduating class as its gift. From that time on each class has pre- sented the school with a painting, and with others, gifts of the artists, the stu- dent body, the faculty, and the Gardena Art Association, the art gallery now con- tains fifty-one valuable paintings with a representation of forty-five well known artists. Connoisseurs state that the col- lection is worth over twenty-five thousand dollars, which is approximately three times the price paid. Newspapers and magazines from all over the country acknowledge the artistic significance of the Gardena gallery of paintings. The classes visited large art galleries and studios of outstanding artists who were in sympathy with the project, and through their generosity the boys and girls were able to purchase valuable can- vases. It was a stimulating experience for the students, meeting the artists in their studios, enjoying their gracious hos- pitality, often seeing the artists them- selves in the process of creating their work, and perhaps setting their hearts on the very canvas that was being painted. Such was the case when the class of 1923 visited the studio of Jack Wilkinson Smith. Year by year the gallery grew, until in 1928, acting on the suggestion of Mr. and Mrs. Hanson Putuff, Mr. Whitely inter- ested the senior class in sponsoring a Purchase-Prize Exhibition. The plans were carefully worked out by committees of students and teachers, and the stu- pendous venture was under way. The Exhibit was so successful in the number of artists responding, and in the great interest evinced by art lovers all over Southern California, that the venture has been repeated each year since that time. At each of the schoo1's showings the paintings of more than one hundred and Iifty famous artists are hung. Here each display has added two more beautiful paintings to our collection until now we present one of the finest exhibitions held in Southern California. The Art Exhibit has given Gardena High School a unique posi- tion in the local world of art. The Exhibit has grown to be a commun- ity rather than merely a school project. The senior class early begin plans for the showing by working in committees with representatives from every important civic and club group of Gardena, and with various faculty committees acting as advisers to the students. A banquet and reception formally opens the Art Exhibit which is attended by the artists, their friends, important people in the field of Education, members of various local or- ganizations, and art lovers of the South- land. The purpose of the Exhibit is not only the purchase of pictures by the grad- uating classes, but more especially the stimulation of art appreciation among the students. This knowledge, gained during student days, becomes something priceless for their adult life, and as grown men and women they will always feel dif- ferently about art. The senior classes leave behind them a permanent and inspirational tribute to their Alma Mater, contributing to the distinction the school enjoys in its posses- sion of a fine and discriminating collection of paintings.

For many years the "Faculty Show" has been a source of socialization and inspiration for both the faculty members and student body. Teachers always welcome the opportunity to show the "human side." It is one of the many ways in which our teachers lend their assistance toward the success of the Art Exhibit. The students and faculty enter into the spirit of the "Faculty Show" with commendable effort and the outcome usually spells enjoyment for all.
