The theme Bu11d1ng for the Future was
chosen because of 1lS approprrateness at the
present t1me The Whole World 1S 1n the
process of bemg rebullt both mater1ally
and morally We ovve 1t to our servrcemen

DB. IOHN L. ABBOTT
Graduates from this school have, since l927, been building
for the future. The traditions they have established, the records
they have achieved have erected a foundation upon which our
progress in the future can be built.
The severity and ravages of the past few years give reason
for re-evaluation of our objectives as an educational institution
and a re-evaluation of our training procedures. More than ever
before we need people who are capable of making social adjust-
ments and solving social problems which arise. Education has
done a reasonably good job of training doctors, teachers, and en-
gineers. We have yet to learn how to teach people to get along
with people. We could do with fewer fine roads and fewer mag-
nificent buildings. The problems which seem to be the stumbling
blocks are those problems which deal with the relations between
people. Man has pretty successfully solved the problems which
grew out of the conflict between man and his environment, but
to date we have rather made a mess of the problems which grow
out of the conflict between peoples. With the rapid advance of
science the future leaves us one of two choices: to limit the forces
of selfishness and solve social problems honestly and equitably
or to face extinction through international conflict. Our success
can't be measured in dollars but needs to be measured in terms
of our ability to understand and clarify human relations.
IOI-IN L. ABBOTT, Principal
MISS HARRIET C ROBBINS
Building for the future is a good theme
for bu1ld1ng is an interesting process First
one needs a plan in order to erect a good
building Next good materials are essent
ial defective or poox material can nullify
the best of plans However neither plans
nor materials produce a building unless

To become a Knight or a Lady is the goal of every Washingtonian.
Meeting behind closed doors of Miss Robbins' and Dr. Abbott's offices,
the Knights and Ladies are chosen on the basis of character, personal-
ity, intelligence, and leadership. Wearing the coveted emblem on the
traditional blue sweater, these thirty-one Rangers are known as "Wash-
ington's best". Bringing back old tradition for the first time since before
the war, a joint banquet was held by the Knights and Ladies with their
parents as guests. The big event of this very enjoyable evening was
the formal initiation ceremony.
The Ladies are known for their gracious hospitality at the B10
Mothers' Tea. Laughter and old friends were predominant at their semi-
annual banquet held at the Eleda. Filling out their social functions, the
Ladies journeyed to Crestline for a snowbound weekend.
The Knights can be seen raising and lowering the flag every morn-
ing and afternoon. A stag social rounded out their social actitities.
Both the Knights and Ladies can be found in the Cafeteria everyday
after nutrition hastily scurrying away with the unsightly glasses and
bottles left there by their classmates. Another of their services was the
orientation of B10's in Washington Ways, and spirit, through speeches
to B10 English Classes. A night of soft music after a day of hard work--
the Knights and Ladies Dance.

SCHOLARSHIP EOR SERVICE
NEW TORCHBEABERS AND FIRST YEAR SCHOLARSHIP
Selected on the basis ot' scholarship, lead-
ership, character, and willingness to serve
Los Angeles, these graduates have not only
accepted the high honor of Ephebianship,
but have assumed the obligation to enter
whole-heartedly into civic work.
The honor attached to Ephebian election
lies in the fact that the faculty believes the
students chosen are capable of bearing a
heavy burden of civic responsibility. Election
is thus a trust and responsibility, rather than
an empty honor. These students have as-
sumed, for life, an obligation of civic leader-
ship. The badge of membership is a gold ring
which has the Ephebian emblem on it. Grad-
uating seniors look upon Ephebianship as the
highest honor which may be bestowed upon
them and those selected are proud of the

Boys' League Cabinet
One of the most active and
largest organizations in Wash-
ington is the Boys' League, rep-
resentative of all the boys of
the school. The very popular
leader this year is J o h n n y
Baker, who has instituted sev-
eral new activities in support
of the school cabinet. T h e y
sponsored many school drives
for the P.-T. A., United War
Chest Fund, Christmas boxes,
and the bond drive. They plan
to sponsor so m e intramural
basketball, football, and horse-
shoe contests to promote great-
er competitive school spirit and
pride among the students. With
such capable leadership, we
can be certain that the Boys'
League will continue to func-
tion as one of the most import-
ant offices of the school.
Girls' League Cabinet

Sponsoring the many drives
this year was the Girls' League,
which is made up of one repre-
sentative from second period
classes. At the begining of the
term they planned the Big and
Litle Sister party for all girls
new to Washington to help
them get acquainted with their
classmates. Besides sponsoring
the Victory Chest drive, which
reached the 351,051 mark, they
sent three hundred and twenty
Christmas boxes to the Red
Cross for servicemen in the oc-
cupational forces and to our

Officiating at the many aud calls, football and basketball games,
and at graduation constitute the main functions of the service squad,
whose name indicates what it performs-service led by George Caras
and Mr. Johnson, the squad has been an invaluable asset to the school.
The girls of this ambitious service organization are chosen for their
ability to handle people, and for their traits of leadership. The active
members perform such duties as ushering at the summer graduation, as
well as at the girls' aud cals. The hard working members of this organ-
ization deserve much credit.

Washington High's highly-re-

ites to win the Southern League this
year, failed to measure up to expect-
ations as they finished near the
celler spot in league competition.
Coach Frank Flannegins eleven,
although seemingly outclassed in
nearly every league tussle, fought
and played their hearts out in each
fray. Fremont's powerhouse waltz-
ed off with the Southern League
crown and the city title to once
again prove that the Dixie loop

The Generals began the season
by romping over Huntington Park
12-0 in a scrimmage warm-up. South
Gate turned in the prize upset of
the season when they tripped the
Armymen 12-0 in a practice fray. In
their initial league contest, the

quite a record to live up to for Washing-

lost the services of Jim Brideweiser and

You'll usually find this happy hard working
group of girls busy as bees. It is a gay active
club which. tries to keep a friendly feeling
amongfthe students and support all school
activities. Their formal initiation, which was
in candlelight, impressed in the minds of all
present, the significance of the occasion. The
biggest social event ofthe season was the
traditionahbpys' night given with their sister
clubs, Co-Eds and Sub-Debs at Palos Verdes
Country Club. Among the other events were a
Hal1owe'en party, ice cream freeze, confabs,
get-togethers, and their Senior farewell at
Clear Creek Lodge.
Led by Morris Draper, the Pry-Tons, oldest
boys' service club, emphasized their five C's.

character, symbolic of brotherhood, in high-
lighting the year with school service, formal
initiation, innumerable parties, gay Girl's
Nite, stags, and ending with their traditional
"It Came Upon A Midnight Clear," "Silent
Night, Holy Night," and "Deck the Halls with
Boughs of Holly." With these and other trad-
itionally Christmas songs the Sub-Debs sailed
forth the past yule season to Serenade their
friends and neighbors. The other social events
of the W'46 term included a white elephant
sale, a slumberflessl party, attendance at a
midnight church service and a spooky Hal-
lowe'en party with their fellow service club,
the Co-Eds. Ah yes, and that wild and wholly
picnic, complete with ants and bugs. As one
of their school service projects, the Sub-Debs
sponsored a clean up week.
, The Key Club, evidencing their desire for
clean living and good sportsmanship, promot-
ed a campaign for a better school spirit and
pride. The success of this year's activities, in-
cluding the fight tags, their formal, their
many parties, stags, is due much to their

wended their way through a year crammed
with festivities. They will remember, the suc-
cess of the 1:00 O'clock Jump, the gaiety of
their formal, and their wonderful Girl's Night.
Johnny would like to dedicate the record
"I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Babyu
to his big moment, Beverly. This and other
dedications floated through the air as the Co-
Eds sponsored a Victory Bond Drive this past
term. A total of over seven thousand dollars'
worth of bonds and stamps were sold through
their efforts. Events of the year included
an eerie and scream provoking Hallowe'en
party with the Sub-Debs. Filling Red Cross

activities in which they took part.

Offering excellent religious training to
all Washington girls interested is the
Euodia Club. At present, there are thirty
members who meet for Christian Fellow-
ship and Bible study every Monday noon in
the garden bungalow. Some of the activi-
ties are week-end conferences, rallies, and
banquets. Every three or four semesters,
they complete the study of the Bible from
beginning to end. Miss Elizabeth Spencer,
sent from the main office, is the leader of
this group and Mrs. Katherine Chase is the
sponsor. Since this is non-denominational
group, all girls are invited to come to the
meetings to enjoy this time of Bible study
and to join in the singing of hymns.
Devoting themselves to brushes and pal-
attes, these artists-to-be are always on the
alert to convey sparks of art interest. One
of the useful activities of the society this
semester was to make place cards and
favors that were sold during the holiday
season. Another worthwhile activity was
the donation of handmade Christmas cards
to the Christmas boxes for servicemen.
"Cass Timberline," "The Robe," and
"Forever Amber" were but a few of the
latest best sellers entering into the lively
discussions of this English honorary soc-
iety. "Vanity Fair," the well-known classic,
was chosen to be read and studied by the
group. Book reviews and lectures are the
main activities of this organization, but
this term they have also undertaken the
project of starting a popular library which
will circulate within the club.
The Belles' Lettres just love to get all
sticky and gooey and are the happiest when
they have their fingers in the paste or glue
bottle. Their club consists of girls who
have done the most work for the library.
Under Mrs. Ethel Blumberg, sponsor, they
fix torn books and magazines, file cards
and put away books. The term project was
to file and catalogue the famous Dawson
collection. Before this the library had no
record nor way of keeping track of this

gaged in such activities as giving a Hallow-

lection of sterling silver spoons for the
Pages of little "Greek" curlicues called
shorthand, plus hours of practicing scales
on the typewriter keys, have earned for
many of Washington's commercial students
the honor of having membership in the
Commerce Honor Society. The only "catch"
to keeping their membership, as in any
other school organization, is that they
maintain a good scholastic record. Every
semester a tea is given to encourage new
commercial students to become members
and new officers are installed. Term pro-
jects for those future salesmen, secretaries
and bookeepers were to fill many Christ-
mas boxes for servicemen.

"Ouch, I stuck my fingeff' To the Victory Corps,
this phrase is very common since many members
have made toy animals from cloth for children of
war-torn Europe. Another project of community
service done by these eleventh grade girls was to
make crossword puzzles for service men in hospitals
last term. Before the war, there were four different

Amazement showed on every Martha and George's face as they
gaped at he realistic wintertime background set for the K 81 L in the
boys' gym. Sunny California suddenly turned to snow as the Knights
and Ladies added a winter glow that touched the hearts of every lad
and lassie present.
In keeping with the cool holiday theme was Mike Ballas' song,
"White Christmas". "Dancing in a Winter Wonderland" was sung by
a boys' and girls' ensemble, while the dancing class stepped in on the last
chorus providing a realistic touch to the title. Dancing continued to
the music of Dave Edwards and his orchestra, while refreshments were
Hawaiian moon, palm trees, and the unique effect of exotic "black
light" will be in store for the crowds of happy Rangers and Cheerokees
that will be drawn to this term's Senior Prom. On the band stand will be
those music masters, the Dukes of Rhythm. As this was still a future
event, at the time the Continental went to press, those who attended will
have to write their own press notices of it for their memory book.
