For the guiding light which he has made
brighter by his enthusiasm, friendliness, co-
operation, loyalty, and fine spirit, we, the
Summer Class of 1939, express in a small
measure our gratitude and sincere apprecia-
tion by dedicating this El Arador to our
new principal of Gardena High School, Mr.

MR. 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
MR. RAYMOND POLLICH
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-
LA VETA CRUMP.
MISS LA VETA CRUMP
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.

I, the famous Mad-

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
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
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.

"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.
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
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

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.
