What kind of a play? A play in three acts! The first act will include pictures of all the classes and faculty, the second act will have all the club activities, and the third act will show sports, art, and so on. Thus the El Arador Staff worked out the theme for this year's Annual early in the fall, "A Play in Three Acts." When the spring semester started, the staff began to put the annual together. Turning here and there to get material for copy, making out schedules for pictures, and putting the dummy together were some of the many first duties. Then when the Hbusy bees" started writing copy,- whew--I The most tiresome iob was cutting those "thousands" of pictures, then sticking them all together ibut that's all past nowig and, as always, there was the last minute rush when papers, pictures, and people were scattered everywhere. When the El Arador was sent to the press, a sigh of relief was breathed by everyone and now . . . the El Arador presents: I NA PLAY TN THREE ACTS" 1 , , - f, W ln .W 'ww wvn4e'wm.af:zoew:c:v:o-Azffzfffmf' f - ff ,ww fvmq Q-xfwwx aww. :rw nw 'awww-W .,,, vw vm MTV 'M :mxwzw4o4mocwwffvmaafvwmw:www: -rf' , N cv.

Wayne Bradshaw Vice-President . . Bill McClung Secretary . Dolores Byrns Treasurer Vera Wilford The curtain has already closed on the winter class of l947. A good hand ot applause could be heard from all sides. Winter '47 was indeed a class to be put on record. lis 37 graduates did much to leave behind them a shining example for the later classes to follow. A :chool record of ill service points, held for two years, was broken by four outstanding students of this small but mighty class. They were Charlyn Young and Bill Kennedy, each with ll5 points, Ralph Cogan with l25 points, and Darlene Dix, who went over the lop with the all-time high of l27 service points. Victorious over the Sr. Bees, W '47 won Field Day with Cl close score of 4-3. Successful class parties in- cluded those held at private homes, a trip to Blackouts, a surprise going-away party for Forrest Johnson lwho joined the Navyl, and the most recent at Mr. Richard- son's home-all of which proved grand successes be- cause attendance was rated as excellent. The picture presented by this class as its gift to the school was entitled "Indian Nocturne," painted by Vtlano Gano. Chosen as the theme for their impressive gradua- tion pageant was the Art Exhibit. Only with Dave Paye holding the reins of the writing committee could any class have presented a more effective, as well as infor- mative program. Drowned still in the round of applause, the class of Winter '47 unflinchingly marched to the future. Deserving students receiving awards were: Ephebian . . Bill Kennedy Lions . David Paye Kiwanis . .

Art Committee Prom Committee W'47 Snow Festival Attendant Shining faces, bright eyes, gleaming personalities, and a maze of talent seized the audience as the class of Summer '47 rose into full view. How else could we describe the eagerness of this assemblage as they en- tered the last and most important role they were to play at Gardena High School? Vividly in mind will be held the unforgotten class parties-Oh, so many many, but each a little different, each an exciting experience-the enthusiasm over each new enterprise, the energy and exhausting work of many of the aciive leaders in the class, and labove alll the fun, companionship and pleasure of working to- gether and sharing in a group all concerned with one interest-the class!! Business is the principle guiding the most part of a senior's life. The Art Exhibit, Senior Tea, May Festival, Senior Play, Career Day, Junior-Senior Prom, Field Day, and the graduation pageant make up only a few of the events that highlight the year before they say good-bye. Chosen for outstanding ability in leadership, schol- arship, and service to school and community were the three Ephebians-Ruth Shiraishi, Dean Maxson, and John Bogart. Drawing to a climax, this class of unexhausted enthusiasm presents as their graduation pageant, "The History of Gardena Valley." SENIOR OFFICERS ISummer '47 Classi President .

WELLS Student Body Presidents DAVID PAYE The stage is set and the "Drama of Dave's Life" begins. Act One shows that when Dave came to Gardena High as a B7, his happy personality won him many friends. ln his three years of iunior high school Dave served as an officer of various classes, and he was president of the Junior Athenians. As an A9 he was electedfjunior high president. - Act Two finds Dave hard at work with an aca- demic course. His three years in senior high were well spent. As a drama student, he was in the cast of such productions as "Tom Sawyer," Mohican Sketchbook," and "Ghost of Storm Heights." He was a member of the Esquires and president of his class. ln Act Three Dave is a Senior Aye. He was elected student body president, was second page editor of the Lark, and wrote the graduation pageant for W '47. Gardena High was proud to have Dave as their pres- ident-and now as the curtain falls, a loud round of applause is heard and many students' voices are say- ing, "Thank you, Dave, for a iob well done." VIC ROBERTSON Curtain goes up-out steps one of the leading characters of Gardena High, you all know him in his role of student body president-it's none other than Vic Robertson. Of course, this isn't the only role he's played, you've seen him as yell leader, captain of our tennis team, president of his All and Bl2 classes, and a member of the Varsity Club and Knights. Vic was chosen from his All Class by the Amer- ican Legion to attend Boys' State for a week. This is a privilege and honor bestowed upon only one boy each year. This boy must be a leader among his classmates, and take interest in governmental affairs. ln June the curtain will ring down on iust one of the many acts in Vic's career. We will all remember him for his wonderful personality and for the swell all- around fellow that he is. These traits will carry him on to success and happiness in the future dramas that await him on the stage of life. Student Council The student council, made up of twelve students who hold the most important positions in the iunior and senior high schools, meets regularly to discuss student body business. The type of assemblies, the arrangement of the student calendar, and the financial affairs of the student body are all handled by this group of efficient officers. The student body president presides over the meetings and the student body is informed through the daily bulletin or through assemblies of the actions taken by the council.

Zn emnriam 'Tjndaumfed by the clouds of fear, Undazzled by a happy day, She made a Heaven about her hereg And took-how much! with her away athrgn zrgnsun mf nnald With the passing of Mrs. Kathryn Ferguson McDonald on February 27, 1947, Gardena High School faculty, students, and alumni lost a sincere friend. Mrs. McDonald was born in Madison, Wisconsin, where she attended elemen- tary and high schools. She later went to Whitewater Teachers' College and then to the University of Wisconsin. After coming to California in l927, she continued her studies at U.S.C., later ioining the faculty of Gardena High School. ' For the past twenty years, Mrs. McDonald's interests were closely allied with the high school. ln her position as a teacher in the commercial department, she has proved an invaluable friend to many students who have gone forward after gradua- tion into the business world. These remember her gratefully. And we others, too, remember gratefully her happy disposition, her genuine interest in us as persons, and her generous, affectionate nature. KWH S. TE, t ,P- "Make Believe" SYNOPSIS: As the curtain is raised, the members of the drama I class are rehearsing. The members of this class are learning the fundamentals of acting so that they may become the stars of the senior plays.

The iunior drama class, under the direction of Mrs. Poulson, produced several plays dur- ing the semester. These included skits for the junior high talent shows, and the A9 graduation plays.

The ring of merry voices and the 'Zinkle of laughter echo clown the halls of Gardena High School. lt is Christmas! The spirit of good will pervades the very hearts of the students. Their faces are broken by cheery smiles, and salutations are heard from all sides. A big Christmas tree is set up in the center of the hall in the main building. Its gay colors and sprucy smell add much to this in- vading spirit of Christmas. Over in the cafeteria, a Christ- mas party is being held for the Junior High service clubs in recog- nition of their faithful work in making Gardena High a better place to work and live in. The concern for ones not so fortunate is heartfelt among the students. This concern is evident as the Girls' League organizes a pie auction, the profits of which go to buy toys for orphans. Yes, this is the spirit of Christ- mas! . . . not the spirit of receiv- ing gifts and having a good time for oneself, but the spirit of cheerful giving and the thoughts of how other people are getting along. It is fitting that the students stop and think of their fellow men because they are celebrating the birth of Christ, who set people a precedent of putting others first that all should strive to follow.

SYNOPSIS: Our "B" football team was thought, by certain persons watching it in action, to be the best offensive team in the city. The team amassed a total of 244 points which is a Marine League record. They thoroughly trounced every "B" football team in the Marine League. About the players, Coach Peak says, "They're all outstanding." A few of the more outstanding were Lloyd Calvin, Bill Baskin, Dick Hashimoto, Wayne Bradshaw, Dean Maxson, F. E. Harris, Al Thompson, who made the all-Marine team, Norman Earley, who made all-Marine, Paul Hernandez, who was all-Marine, and Don Bahrman, all-Marine.

"Action" SYNOPSIS: This year the basketball boys came dribbling down the court with only one victory to their credit. This game was won against the Torrance team. Gardena is in the toughest league in basketball in the city and, being a small school, finds it very hard to keep up with the-other schools. Outstanding men on the team were Don Guy, a tenth grader, Ross Sidebottom, who was second string on the all-Marine team, George lnouye and Mamoru Ogi. George and Mamoru both moved up from the "B" squad to the varsity squad. Returning lettermen were Johnie Degenfelder, Pat Peppard, and Duane Barry. SYNOPSlS: The "B" five, playing in the toughest league in the city, had the misfortune to lose every game this season. Nevertheless, they came very close to winning two of ihe games they played. The out- standing players on the team were James Kelly, who made second string all-Marine, Dale Smith and Gene Paliani. This year the team was looking forward to and building toward next season. The interest in basketball increased very much at the end of this season. There were no returning lettermen on the "B" squad this year as George lnouye and Mamoru Ogi both moved up to the varsity squad.

The scene of "Pyramus cmd Thisbe," taken from a "Midsummer Night's Dream," kept everyone entertained and pre- sented some new talent at Gardena. Above is a picture of one of the scenes from 'iPyramus and Thisbef' After the play, four contestants in the Southern California Shakespearean Festival, who were going to Occidental College the next day to compete against many other schools, gave a preview of their work. The four who went were Sue Barger, John Bogart, Janice Dougherty, and Norine Farnham. All were coached by Mrs. Elsie Todd. Gardena had a first place winner. To Norine Farn- ham was given the Phi Beta Placque for the best girl performer in the entire festival. Phi Beta, a woman's fraternily for drama and music, will continue to follow Norine's activities because she has shown such promise in dramatics. . To the right, Norine may be seen as the subiect of the first-prize-winning picture for the El Arador snap- shot contest. This was taken by Roger Martin. Lx' DANCE PRODUCTION The house lights are dimmed, the curtain rises, then the rhythm of a waltz 'flows through the auditorium. The costumes, lights, and grace- tul movements ot the dancers provide o mood and pattern for all to enioy. As the curtain goes down, the dances are applauded by an appre- ciative audience. ' Behind stage the girls, under the direction ot Miss Gilliland, are nervously preparing for the next dance which they have worked on all semester, coordinating music and costume de- sign, as well as dance technique and rhythm.
