1 I.. 4llga,EEJ,, ,-f.ig..,,,..,Q.- 1 T, A . ,. - . by Cregory l. Wilcox Illustrated by Ken Hively Practically every Monday and Wednesday during the school year a group of surfers meet in the post-dawn gloom along a stretch of beach at the end of Bay Street in Santa Monica. Some stand with their backs to Synanon, the drug rehabilita- tion center, gazing out over the Pacific, watching for swells. Others hunch over their boards, applying a layer of wax that will keep their feet from slipping when they challenge the waves. From a distance their bodies, clad in wet suits, resemble wave splashed rocks shimmering in the early morning sun. But these aren't the archetype surfing nomads who roam the coast questing the ultimate wave. They are Valley College students and members of Coach Jerome Weinstein's surfing class. This half-unit class was started during the fall semester. "The Physical Education Department is always looking for new classes," Weinstein said, "and I knew that surfing had a lot of student interest, so I approached Ray Follasco, P.E. Depart- ment chairman, with the idea, and he liked it!! Although the sun was shining, a late winter fog had quilted the area, and Weinstein's breath was expelled in the form of white clouds. He thrust his hands deep into the pockets of a tan parka and watched his pupils negotiate small waves. Weinstein said that besides teaching the basics of surfing, the course also stresses water safety rules. "We try to have one person on the beach watching the class and one person in the water at all times." The safety record has been good, and the if A ,Marial as - L .

Response to the class has been good, 60 students are enrolled in the sections for the spring, and Weinstein said they are trying to include the class in the summer school curriculum. Surfing is one of the harder sports to learn, said Weinstein, who has been surfing one year, because it takes strength, agility, and guts. "The hardest part for a beginner is learning when to stand. "It is a matter of timing and 'feel' and takes beginners a little while to pick it up." The initial cash outlay is substantial. Wet suits can cost over Headless surfer? No, it is Coach Weinstein winding up a morning of surfing instruction. luiilia U'-.

Search for Identit Hi tor of the Valle By Steve Fischer Illustrated by John Rosenfield A band of zealots, convinced they are helping us regain our lost identi- ty, are roaming the San Fernando Valley in search of its past. This immense project was under- taken last year by Lawrence Jorgen- sen, associate professor of history, and Noel Korn Know teaching at CSUNJ, when they decided it would be beneficial to Valley College and the surrounding community to have a center for their historical records. "At the present time there is no central resource for historical rec- ords concerning the San Fernando Valley," explains Jorgensen. "History has many functions, and one of those functions is to provide us with an identity," says Jorgensen. "Most of us lack this identity, and, therefore, we have little continuity as a community." Since the project was undertaken in the Spring of '73, Jorgensen feels there has been remarkable progress toward regaining this identity. "We have taken more than 700 photo- graphs and another 400 feet of super-8mm film. These photographs are of historical sites that are unique to the San Fernando Valley." Among these historical sites are the Van Nuys Hotel, one of the Valley's first hotels: the San Fernando Tunnel, a 6,975-foot tunnel that gave the Val- ley rail service: and the Oak of the Golden Dream, where California's first gold rush was to take place. "These photographs will give us a flesh-and-blood account of the Val- ley's history, rather than a purely statistical one," said Jorgensen. Along with these documented filmed accounts are taped interviews with some of the "pioneers" of the San Fernando Valley. Included are men like Harry Bevis, who has resided in the San Fernando Valley since the first World War. Both Bevis' uncle and brother were active in Van Nuys real estate and grocer- ies famong other businesses? from 1914 onward. Harry Bevis joined them, and has continued in real estate these past 55 years. Along with Bevis, there is Whitley Van Nuys Huffaker, who has the honor of 74 being the first person born in Van Nuys. The Huffaker family has a long record of activity in the Valley's business and social life, and to this day does business in the San Fernan- do Valley. "Students get excited when I talk about the Valley's history. I feel they like to know where the hell they live," said Jorgensen. Rob Remar, one of Jorgensen's hand-picked assistants, shares this view. "People 50 years ago had an identity, but as the community has grown, this identity has split. We must become more involved in our own community," said Remar. Rick Bellinson. another one of J orgensen's enthusiastic assistants, feels there is a general lack of interest in the San Fernando Valley. "When the Valley was small, it was easy to keep up with what was going on. People were concerned about their community. But now that we have grown so large people have stopped caring. I feel the Van Nuys Project will make us aware of our community again, and also give us a sense of identity," said Bellinson. Bellinson shares Jorgensen's en- thusiasm over the project's poten- tial. "The response from the com- munity has been fantastic, especially from the older residents." Eneompassed in the future plans for the project are field trips, exten- sive research, and additional inter- views with people of relevant his- torical interest. Jorgensen's impending plans for the project include providing L.A. Valley College land the San Fernan- do Valleyl with a regularly-taught one semester class. This class will be based on the project's findings and will deal with all facets of the San Fernando Valley. ln the years to come, Jorgensen wants to create a center for the study of the San Fernando Valley at Valley College. Jorgensen feels that "in addition to the student and college involvement in the communi- ty's past, we will of necessity, at- tract and involve the community itself in this undertaking."
