EI? insistence upon superior quality-even to the small-
est detail-in art work, her understanding sympathy
and the practice of giving each problem her undivided atten-
tion, endear her to all.
Her inspiration, and the cheerfulness with which she
meets and solves each new problem brought to her win the
appreciation of L-oth stu-
l dents and faculty. She is
a true friend to all, one
who never fails a trust
placed in her.
To Miss Mari'e L.
Kern, whose supervision
of the art work has al-
ways made our yearbook
one of outstanding illus-
trations, we dedicate this
issue of the A'Golden Key"
with the hope that it
may convey to her at
least a small part of our
appreciation and friend-
, l ship.

N PLANNING a yearbook, the first thing to consider is
the theme which is to link all parts of the book into a
unified whole. This theme is most fully carried out in the art
uiork which appears throughout.
This year. "Politics" was chosen, in keeping with the
political activity which has made the year a memorable one.
Although this student government is not of a political
nature. the students were more than ordinarily interested in
national politics. For this reason. we consider our selection
an appropriate one for the 1933 "Golden Key."

E ARE proud of our school system and particularly of
our high school. We speak with pride of Monte-
bello High and defend its name wherever we are. Too fre-
quently do we overlook that group of unselfish men who
make it possible for us to enjoy these advantages. Through
their untiring ejforts our high school has become one of high
standing in the state.
At this time, we take the opportunity to express our
sincerest gratitude to our trustees for the many privileges
which they have bestowed on us during the past year.

Last year in his annual message the Principal stated that the Class of
1932 in future years would associate their graduation with the Olympic
Games, probably the most spectacular exhibition of competitive sports ever
held anywhere or at any time.
What shall we say of the Class of 1933?
For many, this year will not be a pleasant one to remember. The world-
wide depression, which began the year this class entered high school, has
grown from economic confusion to well nigh despair. For ten days all banks
were closed to save them and their depositors from financial ruin. Many
families have lost their homes. Montebello teachers are spending two hun-
dred dollars a month for milk and lunch for needy school children. Schools
in the state are threatened with a serious curtailment of educational activities
as a result of a shortage of school funds. As l write these lines hundreds
of families in neighboring cities are without homes and thousands of children
are without schools because of a devastating earthquake. Not a very
ln view of these circumstances what are we to say to this class?
l know of a no better or more hopeful answer than the one put into the
mouth of Columbus by our own California poet, Ioaquin Miller. The daring
mariner was many days out on an unknown and uncharted sea. Threatened
by a mutinous crew, thus spoke the mate:
"Brave Admiral. say but one good word:
What shall we do when hope is gone?"
The words leaped like a leaping sword:
'Sail on! sail onl sail on! and on!"

VERY aspirant for success in this day and age must have
preparation if he is to go far up the ladder which leads to
achievement. One may have dogged perseverence, a mag-
netic personality and qualities of leadership, but coupled
with these characteristics must be education. without which
no one can reach the greatest heights.
Each branch of training in a school is a step on the
ladder that one must climb to reach success. A glance into the departments
of our school will show what it offers as preparation for the future.
SOCIAL SCIENCE Here are studied different branches
of history. United States history and civics show the de-
velopment of the nation and the processes of its government.
. Modern and world history picture the progress of the world
from ancient times to the modern age. Social problems gives
the students a better understanding of the social conditions of
' the world in which they live.
Mathematics is a puzzling but helpful subject. Long
struggles with problems in algebra, geometry and trigonometry
bring results when computations are needed.
LANGUAGE-LITERATURE Despite the radio. people must still be able
to express themselves and to understand literature. This training is given in
the ever growing English department. Projects are introduced to make more
real the scenes from literature: debates are held for discussion of current
Because of our proximity to Mexico and its influence on our customs
and traditions, the Spanish language becomes doubly interesting to those
studying it. Latin. although not as popular as Spanish. is helpful as the
foundation of all languages and a help in the study of English.
HOUSEHOLD ARTS ln this department the girls learn
6 how to become perfect hostesses and good cooks and how
f 52-,ii to do practical dressmaking. New to our school this year
FE, . A. are the home art and design and household science classes.
'fl'-i the course of which is outlined by the Smith-Hughes Act.
A M 4 ln these classes are studied chemical properties and tests for
fl V foods. the identification of textiles by tests. and the best ways
of using food and materials.
HYGIENE Last of the departments is hygiene, in which the girls are
instructed in the principles of first aid and home care of the sick, as well as
in the ways whereby they make a house more sanitary and healthful.
FINE ARTS The music department transports us from the monotony of
everyday life into a world of delightful melodies. The boys and girls glee
clubs and orchestras furnish harmonious music. Three glee clubs, two
orchestras, and a harmony class are included in this branch of work.
The values and blending of colors, designing of posters, lettering, figure
drawing and clay modelling are subjects presented to the beginning art
students. The advanced class, known as the Daubers, give their attention to
the designing of stage sets and costumes, the illustration of the "Golden
Key," and leather work.
MECHANICAL ARTS In the wood shop, construction of
boats, wooden toys and furniture occupies the students'
4? time. Closely related to this branch is the machine shop
Q-Nw where the boys renovate and paint cars and learn about the
l'21 various parts of motors and machines. Mechanical drawing
ll: F, is taken chiefly by boys wanting a subject not purely artistic.
R I l 7' Technicality and accuracy are required in the blueprints of
machines and layouts for homes and buildings.
COMMERCE The commercial field offers a variety of subjects for the
practical minded person. The most popular and helpful is typing, which is
needed in most business positions and which also helps the student in his
high school and college courses. ln company with typing is shorthand, which
dealss with many hieroglyphics, all representing different words and phrases
of the English language. A knowledge of this saves time and is indispen-
sable in the business world. junior business training is the elementary course
in commercial practice, while bookkeeping is the study of accounting and is
the foundation for many higher forms of accounting subjects.
SCIENCE First in this department is general science. It
lives up to its name, in that it is a brief summary of all
sciences. Biology is the detailed study of the human body
and organic matter. The biology students also collect and
dissect various insects, study plants, and learn of the inorganic
matter in the earth. Chemistry is a very different branch of
science. The chemical and physical properties of the elements
are studied and by formulas and equations chemical com-
pounds and their actions are made clearer and simpler.
Physics is the deepest science taught in our school. lt is a
mathematical study of science, explaining such things as
electricity and the laws of gravity and the pendulum,
PHYSICAL EDUCATION All students except those physically unable.
participate in the activities of this branch. Both boys and girls compete
against other schools in various sports. In addition to team competition.
the students are kept physically fit by gymnastic exercises.

NDER its capable leaders the junior class has successfully
proved itself outstanding in every activity during the past
school year. Each member proved himself a worthy repre-
sentative of his class in each succeeding activity.
Q At the Girls League party a group of ten junior girls
under the direction of Mrs. Ricca produced a skit in which
each girl represented one of the faculty and quoted one of
the latter's favorite expressions.
The athletic department offered the members an opportunity to fit them-
selves for the various fields of activity. ln football Russell Stuewe. Cecil
White and Gail Forsyth showed promise for the future, while Robert Latshaw
led the boys in basketball. With john Dore, Ben Hiraga, jack Pickup and
Morton Mengel in track, Chester Druliner and Verlin Coffman in tennis.
and Eugene Cox and William Hogan in baseball, this class proved to be
good competition for the others.
The junior girls turned out in great numbers to participate in their
sports. Those outstanding in baseball, basketball, speedball and tennis were:
De Vota jones, Lily Takashima, Marjorie McMillan, jean Sibbald, Dixie
Strayhorn, Ethel Slaney and Dorothy Ramey. Through their efforts the
junior girls were class champions.
The traditional April Fool's party was of outstanding importance. Cos-
tumes of all types were worn during the entire day and at the party prizes
were awarded for the most original ones. Dancing, sideshows and games,
along with a short program, kept the party in constant motion.
ln scholarship, too, the juniors have not been lacking. They were
fortunate this year in having several of their number maintaining a scholarship
record which placed them on the merit society for the entire year. These
were: Gene Bugbee, Elizabeth Burnett, David Fukushima, Sophie Govorko,
De Vota jones, Billie Land, Anita Marcotte, Marjorie McMillan, Kaiji Ne-
goro. Catherine Sartore. William Stokes and Margaret Wold.
Many juniors were members of the various clubs and organizations
other than the merit society. This class was well represented in the Phi
Chi, a science club created to increase the interest of the members in modern
science and invention, The enrollment of the Drama Club consisted largely
of juniors. Betty Burnett, the president and a member of this class, had
splendid success in her office.

LIRING the past year the sophomores have been very active
in school activities. They have done their part in athletics,
entertainment and scholarship.
First, they gave an assembly program in which ghosts,
skeletons and mystery prevailed. Before a skeleton decor-
. ated background, an orchestra of sophomores played the
weird 'AGhost Fantasy" while two live ghosts, Helen Curley
and Virginia Cutting, and three skeletons, Loraine Mast, Rose Garvis and
Beth Morris, danced about in eerie fashion. Under the influence of the
ghostly music, even the skeletons on the wall seemed to come to life and
made the shivers run along the spines of the timid,
The one-act play, "A Scream in the Dark," showed the Warren family
in their search for their grandfathers treasure which each member felt sure
was hidden somewhere about the house. Their efforts to keep their search
secret from each other were intriguing, and their disappointment when they
found the treasure, only to discover that it was Confederate money, was

In athletics, several names have become prominent. O'Neil White,
small though he is, is a winner. To him the class looks for laurels in run-
ning, and he has not failed them. Another winner is Frank Raines, who
has helped the rating of his class and school.
Among the girls. Virginia Cutting was the only sophomore to make the
tennis team and the only one who placed in track.
In girls basketball, Iulia Kiralla and Irene Kerfoot made a perfect team
of forwards: Margaret Selder, a fine running center: Loraine Mast, a superior

I of the boys and girls seemed so very tiny beside the tower-
ing seniors upon whom they gazed with awe.
In spite of their small stature, the freshmen successfully presented their
class assembly which included a one-act play, "Sauce for the Goslingsf' as
the main number. This play emphasized the crudeness and coarseness of
the slang used by the younger generation. The parents made this manner
of speech distasteful to their children by using slang themselves. Because
they disliked slang in their parents, the children decided to mend their speech

Many of the freshmen enrolled in the junior orchestra and before the
end of the year several were promoted to the senior orchestra. The large
junior glee club was also made up of freshmen.
Nor were the freshmen to be overlooked in sports. For the lirst time
in years the speedball team scored a victory by defeating the sophomores.
With Thelma Hope, Phyllis Druliner, Ieanette Hiriart, Roma Algeo,
Iulia Groen, Myrtle Loyd, Evelyn Combs, Ruth Miller, Amy Krebs, Gwen-
dolyn Wells, Miriam Bartlett, Ruby Purser, Helen Stevens and Betty Araki,
the future of this class is a bright one.
The boys also made a splendid turnout for athletics, several of them
earning letters. Among the boys, the names of Eugene Wineinger, George
Zaima, Virgil DeLapp, Lawrence Olander. Iohnnie Garrett, Iohn Young,
Norman Hinds, Alfred Farnholtz, Charles Hunt, Ioe Stewart, Robert Stokes,
Harry Zander and Edwin Victor stand out.

Because he can drive mules without swearing and because he is a
general handy man, Clarence finds a place in the Wheeler household and
helps to smooth out the disagreements in the family's affairs.
Harrassed hy an interfering, jealous second wife, Mr. Wheeler finds
the rearing of his two children a difficult undertaking until Clarence comes on
the scene and. together with the faithful governess. Miss Pinney, succeeds
in hringing harmony into the family once more.
Of course, Clarence wins the hearts of all the ladies without any in-
tentions on his own part, but all are disappointed at the last when Clarence.
the famous entomologist whose name is in the "Who's VVho". asks for and
wins the hand of Miss Pinney in marriage.
The play was directed by Mrs. Euhanks and Miss Houston.
During the intermissions special music was furnished by the senior
orchestra under the direction of Miss Kathleen Rye.

This picture of life in a tiny New England village was presented under
the direction of Mrs. Eubanks.
Though disappointed in love, Shavings continues to make toys for
children and to find in Babbie and her faithful Petunia a source of joy.
The village skinllint and his friendly enemy, the banker, the gossip with
ear alert for choice bits of neighborhood news, and the high pressure sales-
man, offer many comedy bits.
Two romances are introduced during the play. Maude, the daughter of
the banker, and Leander, the wounded soldier, fall in love and prove to their
parents that they should be enemies no longer. The major, at last wins the
hand of the charming widow, a former sweetheart.
A suggestion of tragedy appears when Charles Phillips, Ruth's brother.
is accused of stealing some money from the banker. Largely because of
Shaving's efforts, Charles is cleared.

HTHE BELLE OF BAGDADN
This operetta was presented by the senior glee clubs. The music was
directed by Miss Kathleen Rye, costumes and stage sets were designed and
executed by Miss Marie Kern and the art department, assisted by the home
economics department under the direction of Mrs. Aldrich and Mrs. Ricketts.
Dancing groups were trained by Ruth Nelson and Mrs. Mary Garner.
The scene is laid in a public market square in Bagdad. Natives in
colorful oriental costumes, together with Americans, form the choruses ol
singers and dancers which help in the unfolding of the story of the search
for the Belle of Bagdad who is wanted for a part in a picture that is being
made in Hollywood.

Perhaps no single organization in school adds so much to the pleasure
of the student body as the orchestra. How much less interesting would be
the usual programs in the auditorium if they included no musical numbers.
The Senior orchestra has played for many student assemblies and for evening
performances given by the school.
This organization is made up of students more advanced in music and
more experienced in this line of work. lts aim is to promote interest in
classical music as well as to give experience to those who can meet the re-
quirements of the orchestra.

Due to the large increase in students who play musical instruments, the
Iunior orchestra. which was organized last year, was continued. This or-
ganization, which is composed chiefly of freshmen, serves as a training class
for those who have had little or no experience in playing with a group. As
they progress, they are promoted to the Senior orchestra.
Something new in group work was accomplished by Mr. Thienes, cadet
teacher, who organized a saxophone quartet.
The members are Willard Witherel, Edwin Victor, Bill Hoeft, Belmont
BOYS GLEE CLUB
The boys in the music department have been gathered into a separate
group and stand ready to help entertain at the different programs.
Mr. Kenneth Thienes, the cadet teacher from Whittier College, assisted
in the direction of this group as part of his course at the college.

GIRLS GLEE CLUBS
The glee clubs offer to students who are interested in singing an oppor-
tunity'to produce choral music intelligently and artistically. Through the
work of the course, members become acquainted with some of the more
Worthwhile music and develop an appreciation for it. These clubs stand
ready to furnish entertainment for the student body whenever the occasion
demands. A feeling of good will and cooperation is stimulated among the
members, not only in their work, but also by several social events.
Because of the rapid growth in this department the girls have been
divided into two glee clubs--the Iunior and Senior glees. The former is a
prerequisite for membership in the advanced group and is composed largely

PUBLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
Public Schools week was inaugurated fourteen years ago by the
Masonic order and was designed as a combined celebration and exhibition
at which parents might see the workings of the educational machinery.
To open this week's celebration Montebello High had as honorary
guests the members of the Rotary Club. Luncheon was served in the cafeteria.
and later an assembly was held at which Nick Harris spoke.
Friday evening the elementary schools presented a program after which
the various departments of the high school were opened to visitors. Exhibits
of the type of work done by the different groups were on display and in
many places work was actually being done.
There were scientific experiments, musical programs. displays of furni-
ture and boats constructed by students, a sewing exhibit including costumes
for the "Belle of Bagdadn, and projects of various kinds. In the gymnasium
daring tumbling acts were performed by both boys and girls, and Iapanese
wrestling holds were also demonstrated.
FRESHMAN CLASS Music, drama and dancing featured this entertain-
ment. With almost professional skill a group of freshman tap dancers went
through dance figures to the tune of "Sidewalks of New York." With equal
skill William Balliger drew melodies from his saxophone.
The play, "Sauce for the Goslingsm, brought home a lesson about the
crudeness of slang. lt demonstrated that--"What is sauce for the goose is
sauce for the gander, and sauce for the goslings too."
SOPHOMORE CLASS The haunting time of Halloween
gave atmosphere to this weird program. Ghostly music by
W a masked orchestra, together with skeleton and ghost dances.
CQ, I were enough to make one's hair stand on end.
NCQ I "A Scream in the Darkf a one-act comedy by Booth
A Tarkington, furnished the finishing touch. Though not a real
L Lghost story, the plot tended to make hair rise higher and knees
ml' shake harder.
DRAMA CLUB U68-70 Berkeley Place" represented two rooms in an
apartment house. Two families-one discordant, the other harmonious--
were shown in their daily routine at meal time.
"Polly's Hero" showed the young man becoming a hero by catching
a real burglar and recovering a necklace he himself had planned to steal
and later discover.
GIRLS LEAGUE The feature of this program was a short
N play, "The Lamp Went Out." While the story was read. the
if l actors pantomimed the incidents. often to the point of bur-
' eww lesque. ln the end, the villain went out and so did the lamp.
'M ln fact, it literally left the room.
'it Besides musical numbers, a tumbling act was skillfully
m x LL performed by a group of girls who formed pyramids and
other figures with much ability.
COLLEGES Whittier College gave three programs including varied
musical programs by their glee clubs and an illustrated travel talk about
Mexico and the Central American countries by Dr. Tupper. Woodbury'S
College also gave a program of musical numbers.
CHRISTMAS PROGRAM lust before Christmas the music department
sponsored a Yuletide entertainment. Christmas carols and antiphonal sing-
ing by the glee clubs and saxophone and Xylophone numbers featuring
Christmas music gave the musical background.
A two-act skit, "Getting in 1925: Giving in 1932," represented the
contrast between the Christmas spirit of 1925 when prosperity reigned, and
of 1932, the depression year. It showed that hardtimes awaken in people
the real spirit of Christmasg that 'To give is better than to receive."
Also in the spirit of the season was a "Skaters Dance" done by girls
in skating costume.
.HAH POST GRADUATES In an assembly, the Post Graduates
GJNZVXA ff! deftly revealed, in their two-act play, the humor of "A Per-
' plexing Situation." Only a woman can tell how perplexing
is it is to be deprived of her speech for several hours.
,g To complete the program, Willard Witherel, accompanied by
Dorothy Whaley, played several selections of his saxaphone.
MISCELLANEOUS Mr. Iames Hartley, a representative of the Hohner
Harmonica Company, showed what can be done with a lowly harmonica.
He played big ones, little ones, long ones, short ones-each and every one
with equal skill.
One day the school was taken back to the Swiss mountains where the
happy peasant folk make their tasks lighter by singing to the echoes of
the Alps. Mr. Fraunfelder and his four children entertained with pictures
of Switzerland and yodelling songs.
Of general interest to all was the presentation of athletic letters by
the coaches. Many boys and girls made excellent records in sports, and
several were given the highest athletic awards the school can bestow.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS WEEK "Swift Iusticen was the title
of the story told by Nick Harris. Basing his remarks on a
recent kidnaping case, he showed the swiftness with which
justice is administered.
Mr. Harris brought with him two of his radio assistants
from KECA and KFI. They played selections on the piano.
the accordion and a home-made stringed instrument somewhat
like a zither.
CLASS DAY Funereal music and the funeral cortege of the Class of 1933
featured this program. With fitting ceremony the last rites of this departed
soul were conducted and when the casket was opened for the last view of
the remains, the will was found. The reading of the last wishes of the
departed afforded much merriment.
GIRLS LEAGUE Several speakers addressed the girls in their special
meetings. European shopping experiences were described by Mrs. Loren
Hendrickson, niece of Miss McElfresh, sponsor of the League. She pictured
her difficulties trying to buy things from people with whom she could not
From Iuvenile Hall in Los Angeles came Miss Blakesley. She told of
some of the eighteen hundred cases handled in her department and explained
some of the methods used in handling them.
The American home and what it means to be an American were ideas
stressed by Mrs. Walter Malone in a talk to the girls. She also emphasized
the traditions on which the American home is based.
Qpi -0 BOYS PROGRESSIVE CLUB The boys invited the girls
gfg to hear one of their speakers, Mr. Gifford Gordon, an
dx Australian lecturer. Mr. Gordon talked seriously about the
Q youth of America and expressed great confidence in them.
ln other meetings, topics of general interest were dis-
cussed by Mr. Filmore of the Los Angeles Probation court
and by Captain Peoples of the county jail. Mr. Eilmore
" " I talked about prohibition: Mr. Peoples discussed narcotics.
GIRLS LEAGUE The Girls League opened the social season with a get-
acquainted party for the new girls. The first part of the entertainment was
an assembly program in which each class presented a stunt. Later, everyone
adjourned to the gymnasium to enjoy dancing and refreshments.
I-IICK DAY April first was the day chosen by the juniors
Q as the time most suitable for their Hick Day. Then dignity
5 was set aside and students wore fancy costumes to classes.
HK Needless to say, many were comical and unusual.
' At the close of school everyone met in the gymnasium
for dancing, entertainment and the awarding of prizes.
CLUB DANCES lr has become a custom in Moritebello for organizations
to hold parties in the gymnasium. This vear only registered high school
students were admitted.
The Girls League, the Drama Club and the Post Graduates offered this
entertainment. with games to supplement the dancing. The fad of the season.
jig-saw puzzles, proved a great attraction.
Collecting news for the school page in the Montebello 'News is the
chief activity of this group. As a class, they study journalistic writings and
are responsible for the humor section of the "Golden Key".
Delegates to the High School Press Association convention at Los An-
geles High School were especially interested in the print shop where a special
edition of the school paper was printed. At the convention, Harry Carr,
veteran newspaper man and columnist, gave interesting sidelights on the
career of a journalist.
As guests of the Los Angeles Times, the Scribblers saw how a large
daily paper is made and they became familiar with some of the machinery
of the press.

This is one of the most active groups in the affairs of Montebello High
School. Their artistry is invaluable to the completion of our well rounded
school life. Their ability is necessary in the accomplishment of most school
activities. Who can recall a play, even of the least importance, which has
not been advertised with their posters, or a banquet with decorations which
have not been made by them? All this was accomplished during the three
hours of time a member must spend weekly in addition to his regular class
With their adviser, Miss Kern, the Daubers visited the Modern Art
Gallery, a block print exhibit and the Huntington Library. Returning to
school with new ideas and knowledge, the club made a block print hanging
for the art room, and linoleum cuts for the "Golden Key".
Among the things which the Daubers have made this year are two
hundred posters, designs for the stage sets and costumes for the "Belle
of Bagdadn, eighty state flags for the grade schools, clay models and leath-
erwork. ln addition, they painted toys for the Christmas charity drive.

School and was followed by the Thanksgiving and Easter dances which proved
to be very successful.
Of great importance is the new vibrator which they added to the equip-

track suits and athletic equipment for the boys.
The highlights of the year were the fall initiation of the new members

One of the peppiest organizations in the school is the Girls Athletic
Association which was formed to interest girls in various sports and in the
annual Play Day.
After earning a total of forty points by playing on class or school teams,
the girls become members of this organization. Sports in which the girls
participate include basketball, speedball, baseball, track, tennis, tumbling.
swimming and hiking.
Hikes and picnics comprise the social life of the G. A. A. On one
occasion, the early morning hours found the girls cooking breakfast over a
camp fire in Fish Canyon under the supervision of their sponsor, Mrs. Fisher.
The first winter snows called the girls to the mountains to enjoy tobogganing
and snowballing. Other events which will long be remembered were a trip
to Switzer's camp and, the most important of all, a hike in the Montebello
hills which was followed by a picnic supper in the park where the new
members were initiated and welcomed into the organization.

This year's sports record is good although not all teams took cham-
pionships. The cross-country team won the Southern California champion-
ship: the B and C track teams, the league championship: the baseball team,
the right to play in the C. l. F. playoff, as well as winning the San Gabriel
Valley league championship. This is the first baseball championship Mon-
tebello has won. ln the C, l. F. playoff with Cathedral High the team
lost 5 to 3.
Playing exceptionally fine basketball, the A's lost only four games ot
ten, to place third in the league. Downey managed to take the Oiler casaba
tossers in both games of the series, but this was evened by the Oilers' taking
El Monte's in both games. Puente and Downey, however, beat the Cilers
in both rounds.
The team was coached by Mr. Oliver, and was led for the first half of
the season by Mario Canzoneri, who starred at guard. For the second five
games Eddie Sansteby captained the five from his post at forward. High
point honors were awarded to Bob Latshaw.

When Coach Iones gave the call for the varsity, six lettermen reported.
Members of last year's Bees, together with new prospects, made the total
number reach about three full teams.
When the league games started, the Oilers were in fine form for the
lirst game, with Citrus. Although they lost, they put up a great fight. They
next met Excelsior, champion team of the league. These opponents proved
to have too much strength and power for them. ln the Downey game, the
Oilers again tasted defeat by a close score of one touchdown. El Monte
made two touchdowns in the first quarter but was held the remainder of the
game while the Oilers drove over a score and converted.
The Puente game was the big game of the season for the Oilers. The
teams were so evenly matched that no score was made until late in the final
quarter. Montebello had Puente on their own five-yard line and in an attempt
to kick out, Owen crashed through and blocked the kick and Rice recovered.
With the ball on the five-yard line, Langdon pushed it over in two tries,
thus giving the Oilers their only league victory.

Under the direction of Mr. Rough. who for several years has produced
winning teams in cross-country, field and track events, the Oilers again
brought home several trophies. ln the C. I. F. finals Virgil DeLapp, a
freshman, placed third in the 660-yd. run, just .8 seconds behind the winner.
A mild upset occurred in this division. Elliott was not doped to place
more than third in the 880, but through sensational performance he won
the 880 over all others. making the third consecutive year for Montebello
in this event. Captain Langdon finished first in the high hurdles but was
disqualified. The A's finished fourth with 18 5f6 points.

El Monte, leader in S. G. V. L. championships for class B for several
years, gave way to Montebello. Like a bolt from the blue the Oilers dug
their spikes deep into the turf and came home with the prized trophy. There
was plenty of fireworks throughout the meet but Montebello had too many
real athletes who performed sensationally under fire.
Wineinger upset all dope by taking first in the high jump with a
leap of 5 ft. 6K5 in., and Dore set a new league record in the high hurdles
with the fast time of 9.9 sec. However, credit should be given to the entire
team who contributed to the winning with 34 points.

On the strength of performances which saw White establish a new

team, the class C boys won the S. G. V, L. championship this year.
lnspired by the fighting spirit of Captain Paul Fukushima, who although
suffering with an injured foot, ran one of the pluckiest 660 races ever seen
on any track, the class C boys placed first with a grand total of 37 points.

This year the juniors were invincible. They just couldn't be beaten in
any game they played, with the result that they won every interclass contest
they entered-basketball, speedball, baseball and track. Without exception,
the girls played like demons, showed the best of sportsmanship and have
reached their goal-Class Champions of the Year,
Basketball is the first sport for the girls in Montebello High School.
About six weeks after school opened, the interclass teams were chosen
by the coach, Mrs. Fisher, and a few of the upper class girls. Competition
was great in all the classes, and it was, in every case, hard to choose
the best girl for the right position on the teams.
ln the first part of the season the games were slow and uninterest-
ing, each game being a walkaway for one of the teams. ln the first and
second games the two upper classes walloped the two lower classes with
much ease. The scores were juniors 24, freshmen 12, seniors 28, sopho-
mores 9. The freshman-senior game was the first game with any com-
petition, the seniors winning 26-6, with surprisingly little elfort. The
freshmen, although they played very hard, lost to the sophomores with
a score 21-7.
The junior-senior game was both exciting and spectacular. Both
teams fought hard to the finish, but the juniors came out ahead with a
score of 25-19, meaning also that the juniors won the girls basketball
championship of the 1932 season. For two years the class of '33 had
placed second in the championship and this year they had a very good
chance of capturing the title. Luck, however, was against them, but they
took the defeat that the juniors dealt them in a sporting way, even though
it was hard to lose the championship their last year.

as in basketball, winning all three games. The seniors were second, winning
two of the three games played.

lnstead of the usual single interclass track meet, two meets were held
this year: one for individual points. the other for interclass points.
At the First meet, Emma Sarrazin was high point winner, with forty-five
points. She took first place in the 100-yard dash. Erst in the baseball throw
and first in the basketball throw. lean Sibbald was second with forty points.
She placed first in the hop, step and jump, first in the 75-yard dash, and
second in the basketball throw.
ln the interclass track meet, the juniors won with 100 points, Their only
opponents, the freshmen, were not far behind. with 80 points.
The freshmen turned out in such large numbers that a special freshman
track meet was held for them.
Although tennis season was not over when the i'Golden Key" went to
press, the girls team had given up hopes of capturing the championship title.
They had won their matches with Downey and Citrus with comparative
ease, but El Monte proved too strong.
The team was somewhat mixed at times. Virginia Cutting, Emma Sar-
razin and DeVota jones all played first singles- one time or another. Emma
Sarrazin and Virginia Cutting had played second doubles, and Elsie Deutsch
had played second singles.
But the teams last stood as follows: Virginia Cutting, first singles:
Emma Sarrazin, second singles: Dixie Strayhorn, lean Sibbald, first doubles:
Elsie Deutsch, DeVota jones, second doubles.
Though scores were close, the juniors, as usual, came out on top, win-
ning nearly all of the games they played. The sophomores were second with
two games out of three: the seniors, third: and the freshmen, fourth. The
junior captain and pitcher, lean Sibbald, played marvelously and her pitching
made big headway for the juniors in winning their three interclass games.

Instead of having only one play day this year, the girls of Citrus, Downey,
Excelsior and Montebello met twice for a play day. The first meet was
held at Excelsior in November. The basketball and volleyball teams both
won and lost games, but altogether they made a very fine showing.
The second play day was held at Citrus in May. Baseball and tennis
teams from the same four schools attended. ln the afternoon, stunts were
held, each school presenting a part of the program.

Situation", by Iennie Smith, which they presented at their assembly program.
The play proved that women can hold their tongues for an entire day.
if they are paid for it. In doing this, however, they are confronted by
many perplexing situations.
The program, including the coaching of the play, was under the direction
of the president, Orpha Shelley.

piano and Willard Witherel played several numbers on his saxophone.
THE SPRING DANCE
In the spring, the P. Gfs again entertained the student body with a
dance in the gym. Novel entertainment and dances were the features of the
afternoon and the prizes were well worth working for. Two of the P. Gfs
played in a peppy orchestra.

What she Says, she means
Members of each year's graduating class go out into various fields of
activity, some to lit themselves for careers, others directly into careers. On
this page are notes of the activities of several members of last year's class.
Billie Iune Flora, who is taking post-graduate work at South Pasadena
High School, has had two outstanding parts in the productions of the music
department. She had one of the solo leads in the musical comedy and she
also had one of the solo parts in the "Messiah".
Many of the boys who left our halls in Iune, 1932 are making places
for themselves on the track teams of the different colleges which they attend.
At Compton C., Iimmie Ash is running the 440, Eldridge Rice, the 880
and two-mile and Harlen Wold, the two-mile. Harlen received a sweater
for his work in cross-country. Charles Heath is high jumping and running
the high hurdles on the Cal. Tech. track team and will receive a freshman
letter. At L. A. C., Dick Coulette is running the 880.
During October, Glenn Price took a theatrical tour on the RKO circuit
as far as Chicago. He was working in a musical comedy act with Peggy
Eames, who is one of the original members of the Hal Roach "Our Gang
At present he is working as sports editor and cartoonist for the Eastside
Guardian News in East Los Angeles.
At Whittier College, we find that Michiko Bessho is holding the position
of secretary of the Y. W. C. A. and has recently been elected to the Palmers
Opal Holmes and Hilma Horsley were members of the Tartarettes at
Compton C. This is a drill team composed of fifty members chosen from
the girls of the college.
Carl Dutcher holds the position of assistant cheer leader at Compton
Hixon Boranian has been playing in the orchestra of the Hollywood
Athletic Club. At present he is teaching violin and writing music.
At Pasadena I. C., Carolyn Rough accompanied the glee club during
the first semester and sang in the a cappella choir which participated in the
Easter sunrise service held at the Hollywood Bowl.
Louis Lagrave placed second in the oratorical contest at Redlands. The
participants in the contest were representatives from all the junior colleges in
California. A'And the competition was keen." says Louis.
