Embodying the attributes he assists in developing in Point Loma stu-
dents is our Principal, L. L. Bloomenshine.
Commended in previous annuals tor his friendly nod, lcindly smile,
keen wit, quiet sense of humor, and unassuming ways, Mr. Bloomenshine
still retains these qualities and gradually acquires others as he capably
administers our school through the years. Patience and understanding,
prime requisites in worlcing with young people, are in Mr. Bloomenshine
often tried to the limit. These times, however, when he must exercise
disciplinary measures, are amply counterbalanced when he pridefully
presents academic and sports honors, climaxed by that all-important
diploma, to students of his Point Loma High School.
Dealing with students composes only a part of Mr. Bloomenshine's
job. He must be sympathetic and understanding in coping with 'faculty
problems as well. Though advice to teachers, parents, and students is
perhaps routine for Mr. Bloomenshine, he considers each individual prob-
lem with warm, human understanding and interest.

Mrs. Maull's works of wisdom are well known to all Point L-omans. Her
efficient performance of duty as Dean of Girls, adviser to the Girls' League,
and adviser to the Commission has detracted not a particle from her grace
and charm of manner. Instead, her fund of humor has been enriched by
some of the profound utterances of her Commissioner proteges. Working with
the counselors and encouraging student-sponsored social affairs give Mrs. Maull
an intimate acquaintance with Point Loma's citizens of tomorrow. V

The casual visitor to Point Loma will happen many times upon a man
who seems to be everywhere. That model of efficiency is our Vice-Principal,
Mr. Williams. He can often be seen in his capacity as Dean of Boys, as lunch-
duty supervisor, or as Annual Staff adviser. We gratefully acknowledge our
dependence upon Mr. Wfilliams, "the indispensable."
Mr. Robert Williams
ln years to come, we will leaf through these pages, "in vacant or in pensive mood," recalling
various personalities among our high school teachers. Some will stand out in memory: others may
be more indistinct in the background. Hardly a one ot us will 'forget Miss Clark, chairman of the
English Department. The proper place to put a comma also calls to mind Mr. Emerson, Mrs. Christian-
son, Mrs. McDougall, Miss Greer, Miss Oliver, Miss L. Lyman, or our newest addition, Mr. Ellis. Upon
viewing the pictures of Mr. Atherton, Mr. Walt, Miss Conard, Mrs. Giles, and Miss Tissue, one will
faintly remember the "elastic clause" of the Constitution or the fall of the Roman Empire. Mr.
Lamott, Mr. Banks, Mr. McKenney, and Mr. Farrar will symbolize H,SO,, wind resistance, sunlight,
ancl chlorophyll, respectively. The faces of Mr. Franken, Miss Byrne, Miss Gibson, and Miss Scliroepfer
will bring to mind a few phrases of foreign languages. One can't help recalling the valiant efforts of
Miss Van Eizenga, Miss Troxell, Mr. Purdy, and Mr. Candor in trying to give us an understanding, of
mathematics. Former students of music or drama will loolc long at the pictures of Miss Parrott,
Mr. Janowslcy, or Miss J. Brodie, while the specialists in art and photography will immediately notice
Mr. Ellison and Miss W. Brodie. The teachers of commercial courses, Mr. K. Christianson and Mrs.
Va n Eizenga
Held: the economics teachers, Miss Brown and Mrs. Gordon: the girls' physical education instructors,
Miss Crosby and Miss l'lilss: teachers of the lndustrial Arts, Mr. Jewell, Mr. DeVore, and Mr. Rye: our
librarian, Miss J. Lyman, and her assistant, Mrs. Sandstad: our excellent coaches, Clarkson and Gid-
dings: our ROTC instructor, Tf'Sgt. Harris: Financial Secretary, Miss Jones: Attendance Secretary,
Miss Buerlcle: Main Office Secretary, Mrs. Hadsell: our school nurse, Mrs. Davies: the cafeteria
workers and janitors: "Teddy," the gardener: all will be remembered as integral parts of Point Loma.
Miss W. Brodie and Miss Giles' photos are missing.

was seen peeping out from unusual places. More amusing than amazing was
the mere junior, who for the purpose of this discussion shall remain nameless,
that vainly tried to take the vote away from any homeroom not represented
at Commission Meetings. The surprise ending of the Christmas assembly was
another notable event. At still another assembly, the band, under the baton
of eminent Mr. Janowsky, played a musical number in two movements, the first
of which ended rather unceremoniously when several of the band members lost
their places. No damage was done, however, during the pause, because Ben 4
Bowman, who had started eighteen measures late, was enabled to catch up
in time for the start of the second movement. Point Lomans were amazed
to hear that, fantastic as it may seem, Mr. Emerson's class was being dis-
turbed by a noise from outside the room! The disturbance was traced to Gordon
Thompson, practicing his oration, "The History of the Constitution," in Miss
Brodie's basement grotto. He was forgiven when he returned from the Ameri- l
can Legion Oratorical Contest with a plaque proving his superiority to all
other entrants in that contest. Not to be outdone, classes at the other end
of the school began tracing a disturbance of their own. Although the cause
was never found, much improvement was noted aft he Drum and Bugle
Corps changed its practice time from during school hour o after sixth period.

A few days before the endlof the'first semester, anlannouncement con-
cerning the standardization of citizenship grades caused considerable excite-
ment. Because a large part of the student ybody'-lestimated at five percent
by Dr. Gallupl approved putting the plan,into effect at once, circulators of a
petition were unable to secure more than seven hundred signatures den-ouncing
the act as "ex post facto." The demands of this minority were nevertheless
answered, the grades came out, and the final semester began.
Harry Shannon became the new Senior Class President, assisted by Peggy
Malm as Vice-President, Joanne Jensen as Secretary, and Ethel Williaims, Treas-
urer. Fourteen seniors took the PepsiaCola Scholarship test. Peggy O'Neal, social
chairman, directed preparations for the Snowflake Shuffle. Miss lClark's classes
feverishly memorized the complete works of Milton. lThis is an appropriate
occasion to mention the only three quotations from classical poetry that
seem destined for immortality: I. "That's your line, Frankenstein." 2. "Hey
babareba." 3. "What's your story, Morning Glory?"l The weather became
warmer as the semester drew toward the end . Gym classes became a positive
pleasure. lThis last chance for erudition to rear its ugly head will be spent in
giving advice to future members of gym classes at Point Loma: One can
frequently avoid running the track by throwing sand on oneself and pretending to
be the new boys' gymnasium.l I T
The season ended with the traditional festivities of "Ditch Day" and the
Senior Prom. After graduation, as the Seniors of I947 make their way to a
new life, wherever they go they will never forget the wonderful times they had
at Point Loma nor the friendships they cultivated, for these will always remain.
"Parting is such sweet sorrow."

,ln I946, Pt. Loma's gay "middle class,"' better known as the Juniors,
really came into its own. While indifferent seniorslstill rested on last year's
laurels, bright eleventh graders took oyer important positions. The year
had hardly begun when Junior Prom, Ring, and Sweater Committees were
organized: while in sports, Pt. Loma'si"young bloods" were adding that
spice of interest which brought the huge crowds of pretty sophomore,
junior, and senior girls flocking to the ticket windows.

Like Midas, this class possessed a touch of gold. Every event in
which they participated, from dances to fiestas, became a 'Financial as
well as a social success. They campaigned in every conceivable way
during their class elections, in which David Thompson became President:
Charles Wilson, Vicie-President: Betty Timmons, Secretary, and Joan
Jefferson, Treasufe ,Over night, lockers were stuffed with political
pamphlets, gay b tons, and all sorts of propaganda material. To the
loudly expressed chagrin of the enterprising young publicity agents, some
students formed the habit of collecting these fascinating advertisements
for their own purposes.
Because of the Junior Spirit of '47 at old Point Loma, the words
"underclassmen" have become synonymous with ambition. Everyone
appreciated the worthwhile contributions of such people as Bob and Dick
Rye, Charlotte Henderson, Evelyn Braddock, Mary Blake, and Lucille
Ledford. Only a few offices, such as Commissioner of General Affairs
and Managing Editor of EL PORTAL, were safe from the aspiring eleventh

Alas, the poor "sophs"! For years the traditional consolation of
sophmores has been to have "green" freshmen to loolc down upon. At
Point Loma, all that is changed. Since nearby Dana has taken up the
freshman burden, the sophomores themselves are exposed to the rude,
crude, and unattractive treatment given all "cabbage heads." Still, with
untrammeled spirit, they have participated in sports, attended dances,
enlivened thespian activities, and elected their own representatives in
Weary, sophisticated seniors were amazed and amused by their lively
antics: but their precedent-setting class organization, with Emil Jouglet
as President, Dorothy Rimell as Vice-President, Peggy Kelly as Secretary,
and Virginia Janney as Treasurer, prove that all their efforts were not
directed towards play.
The "Sophomore Assembly," -one of this class's many innovations,
entertained grateful members of the student body and teaching staff
early in this year with songs, dances, and instrumental pieces.
Members of this class, by their sincere efforts to help, have proved
themselves intelligent and hard-working. The rosters of important clubs
like the C.S.F. contain a high percentage of sophomore names. S. O.,
another school recognized organization, has recently combed the ranks of
the "younger generation" for new members. This is but a part, however,
of their long list of fine achievements.
Choral and orchestral groups have finally begun to appreciate their
sophomore members. The band which serenaded our victorious football
team and entertained students at assemblies consisted mostly of "sophs."
Mr. Janowslcy, their instructor, has proudly declared that because of them,
next year's band will be a "lulu."
In fact, Point l.oma's "cabbage heads" have become so assimilated
that many are mistaken for seniors, and those wary "upperclassmen" have
been forced to recognize their existence. The senior class of '49 may-
and what higher compliment can be conceived?-very nearly equal the
senior class of '47,

Point Lomans pride themselves on their
student government, one of the most demo-
cratic and efficient in the city. This year
particularly, the Commissioners, along with
the Election and Eligibility, Service Points,
and Social C-ommittees, have been very
active. The A.S.B. B'all, an outstanding
success held at the Thursday Club, was a
testimony to the efforts of the Social Com-
mittee. Another triumph was February's
formal installation of officers, a new devel-
opment this year. The recently formed
Constitutional Revision Committee was
busy all spring revising parts -of our 'Consti-
tution. Our alert second semester Com-
missioner of General Affairs, Dave Finster,
attended meetings with A.S.B. presidents
from other schoo-ls to exchange ideas. The
campaign directed toward "more school
interest" bore fruit in the noticeable increase
in homeroom representation at the bi-
monthly meetings. 'Our A.S.B. Commission
has proved that democratic school govern-
ment really works.

f The Commissioner of Girls' Activities presides over the Girls' League, an
organization which was founded t-o train better citizens to serve the school, and
to promote friendship among all girls in Point Loma.
Under the sponsorship of the dean, Mrs. Maull, the Girls' League conducted
many new and special projects and activities. lt held a fine fashion show for the
new girls at Point Loma, put on the colorful Penny Festival, and gave the hilari-
ous Sadie Hawkins' Dance. Believing that good citizenship is based upon full

understanding, the League next extended an invitation to a group of American
girls of different racial descent to present their "lntercultural Program." With
March came "Silent Day" and "Trilf" signs for all girls wh-o were found convers-
ing with boys. Many teachers expressed the desire that girls would refrain from
conversing with girls also, but their wish was not granted. The big event was
climaxed in the evening by the "Reunion Romp," when boys and girls once
again were p-ermitted to talk freely. Later in the year, the Senior Mothers' Tea
was given, An-other big success was the Student Teacher's Day, now become
one of Point Loma's most popular traditions. For a new service project, much
needed large mirrors were bought for the girls' rest rooms.
To enforce any laws passed by the Girls' League, the Dress Court was
established. This c-ourt, composed of judges, Kay Lupton and June Hallstrom,
and a ten-girl jury, meets every Monday after school, hears cases, and imposes
penalties upon girls who have failed to comply with school regulations. L...

In the tall of I946, the Boys' Federation began the direction of a
series of successful activities. It started with a stag assembly consisting
of football movies and a talk by Mr. Breitbard, of the Breitbard Athletic
Foundation. The Federation, in the capable hands of President Bob Rye,
Vice-President Don Jones, Secretary John de Beck, Treasurer George
Perdomo, and Adviser Mr. Williams, swelled its treasury through the sale
of Point Loma buttons. They also sponsored lunch duty tor a Week.

With the arrival of spring came the long awaited "Springtime" dance,
directed by new President Gordon Thompson, Vice-President Bob Hobson,
Secretary Benny Saravia, and Treasurer Bob Tupper. Remarks were heard
to the effect that no person ever decorated the girls' gym so beautifully
and effectively as did Bob Hobson. Kenny O'Neal's alumni band co-
operated very well with the Federation in presenting the musical assembly,
creating with mellow, moving lights a beautiful background for the
applause accorded the most sensational assembly of this type in four
years. We can overlook the fact that Norman Oliver and Manuel Silva
posed as singers in this assembly.

I For al
Through the combined efforts of Louise Freitas, Business Manager, Burton
Crowdus, Publicity Chairman, and members of the Senior Class, the I947 EL
PORTAL was successfully sold to Point Loma's students. Then came the job
of providing an annual worth the money. This was a real task. Managing
Editor Barbara Simmons could be seen running around with deadline sheets
until all hours of the night, Literary .Editor Gerald Porter consistently attempted
to catch forty winks in classes after burning "midnight oil" over write-ups:
Art Editor Barbara Carr's fine black hair threatened to turn gray during each
fifth period: only Secretary Barbara Shearer remained calm through it all.
Advisers Mr. Williams, Mr. Ellison, Mr. Emerson, and Mr. Christianson have
developed more worry wrinkles than they care to count: but at last it's all
finished. Hope you like it.

The Pointer followed a very active schedule this past year under
the expert advice of Mrs. Margaret L. Christianson. With Mary Maw as

standing among students, faculty, and parents: and to assist every effort
designed to aid the peace. Subordinate editors were: Alyce Rosa, News:

The I947 edition of Harbor Lights marks the ninth anniversary of its
production. Throughout the years, the literary magazine has printed the
poems, essays, and other original writings of Point Loma's Shakespeares,
and has won highest praise from its faculty advisers, Miss Clark, Miss W.
Brodie, and Mrs. Christianson.
Compiled by its efficient staff, including Managing Editor Irving
Rogers, Literary Editor Hubert Johnson, Art Editor Frank Crump, Business
Manager Ronnie Campbell, and Advertising Manager Joanne Hobbs, the
publication continues a vigorous life of tribute to the continuing excellence
of our school's literary output.

ln order that the auditorium activities might be more
representative ot the wishes of the school as a whole, the
Commissioner of Cultural Affairs was replaced by the Cultural
Committee two semesters ago. This year's many fine as-
semblies were the results of the ettorts ot the Committee.
The members are always on the loolcout tor student ideas,
tor assemblies which will be appreciated rather than griped
about. The students on this Committee, John Traxler, Beverly
Crume and Carol lhrig, relay these ideas to Chairman Nancy
Peterson, thence to Miss J. Brodie, who converts them into
girl ' nAem6 e-girl 'glee
From the first experimental notes that drifted hesitatingly through the
second floor halls in September, to the professional presentations that marked
Vespers and Graduation, Point Loma's choral classes earned their place in our
hearts. No occasion was too small nor any holiday too great for their talents.
Gladly did they give to school and community. The Four Arts program, Christ-
mas at Point Loma and at the city-wide pageant in Russ Auditorium, Easter
and the stirring "Hallelujah Chorus," the Spring Concert-thus reads the list,
and the community at large could furnish many additions.
The Choir, the Girls' Glee, and the Boys' Ensemble were joined this year
by a vigorous newcomer, the Girls' Ensemble. Help in the busy schedule and
with these many groups came to hard-working Miss Parrot from three business-
like student directors. These girls, Joan Koplco and Louise Balelo of Girls' Glee,
and Arita Winston of the Choir, exhibited professional abilities that secured
for them considerable commendation. Soloists during the year were Jean
Wright, Lois Stephenson, and Pat Cline. Sharing the work of preparation and
presentation, the accompanists must not be forgotten. Nancy Peterson, Dorothy
Simcox, Leola Padgitt, and Elizabeth Goodearl performed these very necessary
Perhaps Point Lomans remember best the thrilling moment when, strolling
informally through the halls at Christmas time, the singers raised their voices
in the old familiar carols. Doors of classrooms swung silently -open, and busy
classes hushed in appreciation. May that custom never disappear.

The Pain te Kami
An increase this year in the number of
members in the band and the orchestra
enabled the director, Mr. Janowslcy, to pre-
pare a widely varied program. The audience
at the band assembly enjoyed military num-
bers, overtures, -and light operas. The biggest
hit of all, however, was in a completely new
field. When the versatile members of the
band swung out on "Hey! That's Boogie!"
the response of the student body rose to new
heights. From the opening performance at
the Carnival, through the football season,
to the final program, the members of the
band exhibited skill, enthusiasm,and a loyalty
unexcelled by any other school organization.
The band represented the school at several
community celebrations, notably the dedica-
tion ofthe new recreation building in Ocean
Most of the glory in the second semester
went to the orchestra. This group also ex-
panded its membership, signing up 'Fourteen
instrumentalists. In addition to participating
in the citywide Mother's Day Festival at
Russ Auditorium, the orchestra held a feature
spot in the Spring Concert of the Music
Mr. Janowslcy was assisted by Ben Bow-
man, the student director of the band.

" vme Rain or Shine"
The Senior A Play, "Come Rain or Shine," presented a fine oppor-
tunity for drama students to display their talents. Heading the cast was
Carol lhrig as the vivacious daughter of "the lion at home and mouse at
the office" newspaperman, Harry Shannon. Included in the indispensable
supporting cast of this hilarious c-omedy were Norma Ghio and Barbara
Carr, who doubled as mother of the Grayson family: Irving Rogers and
Quentin Decker, who shared honors as the younger brother: Nancy Peter-
son, his boat-crazy girl friend, Dale Shoupe, who was determined, "come
rain or shine," to produce a play at the summer theater, Arita Winston,
who almost thwarted his efforts because of a lovely, spoiled personality,
and Lois Stephenson and Mary Perestrello, who alternated as the doting,

Perhaps one -of the best-remembered productions of the year was
the mystery drama, "Double Door." The cast c-onsisted of Joanne Jensen
as Victoria Van Bret, a domineering woman who allows none of her family
to go against her wishes: Carol lhrig, her timid sister: Beverly Crume as
Anne, the young woman who resists Victoria's do-minant personality: Grant
Conard, Vict-oria's lhalt-brother, who intends to marry Anne: Annabelle
Ryan, the middle-aged housekeeper: Harry Shannon, the handsome self-
assured man of sixty, and Don Walker, the honest, intelligent doctor.
The cruel, self-centered Victoria goes to such extremes in protecting the
Van Bret fortune that "Double Door" becomes an enthralling, intensely
dramatic play. Norma Ghi-o student-directed this fine entertainment.
Drama and dance play an important part in everyone's school life,
as Point L-oma High School students will testify. Every study hall has its
wit, every English class its orator, and every gym class its dancer. Teachers
vainly attempt to control these embryo Fred Astaires or Bette Davises,
and gladly hail the assembly which gives each of them an opportunity
to work off his excess energy.
This year the thespian's program alone was so excellent that we shall
treat it separately. The invitational assemblies, sponsored by the Drama
Department, consisted of one-act comedies like "Little Darling," while
the school-wide gatherings were presented "Dust of the Road" and
"Psalm of Thanksgiving."
The dancers displayed their skill in an admirable Four Arts program.
For those who didn't witness this performance of technical skill and con-
trolled emotion known as "modern dance," we have only sympathy.
To balance this entertaining program, other amusing educational
assemblies were planned. The Safety Committee's assembly proved quite
interesting to many in view of the fact that several accidents involving
Loman students occurred this year.
The Science, Language and Mathematics Departments had their days
also. The Science assembly created quite a stir of enthusiasm for Chemistry
classes and the Science Club when cherries and other articles, frozen by
liquid air, were distributed in the auditorium for inspection. The Pan
American Club's movie on "Eldorado" lCity of Goldl, Brazil charmed
the Associated Student Body with its marmosets, ant-eaters and baby
ocelets. Its vivid technicolor enhanced the appearance of Brazilian archi-
tecture, produce, and people. Many were astonished upon discovering
the various wonders of the Amazon Basin.
Both the Band and the Boys' Federation assemblies presented music.
One program consisted of classical, martial and modern music performed
by Mr. Janowsky's Loman orchestra. The second program was purely
modern. Although not an innovation, this sort of entertainment at an
assembly was relatively new to Point Loma's students. Judging by the
comments heard after it, they would welcome more of them.
Finally there were the senior gatherings which, of course, only the
"upperclassmen" attended. One of them concerned the Senior Play,
"Come Rain or Shine." Others concluded various business matters. The
dates for the Prom, Ditch-Day, and Vespers were announced, and coun-
seling for future occupations was given. Seniors were delighted to hear
that the Prom would be held at the Hotel del Coronado and the Ditch-
Day at Del Mar.

Few people of the average audience realize the contribution made
to a dramatic production by the stage crew. At Point Loma, these silent
performers play their distinguished parts without applause under the
management of Bill Callaway and Jay Plummer.
Ronald Fellows, designer of the stage set for the Girls' League pro-
duction, "Knave of Hearts," is responsible tor the flood and spotlights.
Joe Henning, painter ot the master portrait in "Double Door," maneuvers
the curtains and drops. The quaint old stove that also appeared in the
"Double Door" was a product of the ingenuity of Frank Crump and Jane
Titlow. Richard Stangl and Harry Bixby deserve particular mention tor
their imaginative creation in "The Lost Princess." Bill and Jay also did a
splendid piece of worlx on lighting ettects tor Kenny O'Neal's Band.
The newest acquisition which we have is a new color wheel and spot
border. Point Loma can look forward to even more effective and protes-
sionally artistic productions.

The I946 football season opened with the colorful annual
football carnival. Point Loma whipped Grossmont in its twelve-
minute period, 6-O, with Jim Jensen scampering 38 yards for a
touchdown. The next game was a non-league affair, with the
Pointers beating Brown, I2-0. Don Jones, end, and Bob Mellison,
substitute fullback, made the Loman scores. They then won
a close game from Kearny, I3-6, with Jones and Jensen scoring. A
scoreless tie with Oceanside was the only black mark on the cham-
pion Pointers' record. The following week they really showed
their fight and spirit with a I3-6 upset of a rugged Grossmont
eleven. The Lomans put on a powerful passing attack with ends
Dave Finster and Don Jones making touchdowns. The La Jolla
Vikings were the Pointers' next victims, going down 7-O. Manuel
Silva, Loman fullback, scored the touchdown, while tackle Manuel
George and guard Gordon Thompson excelled on defense. Then
they smashed Coronado with a 32-0 defeat on a rain soaked
field. The Pointers pulled a trick out of the bag on the second
play of the game with Finster taking a short pass from Jensen and
reversing to Jones for a 52-yard touchdown that broke the Islanders'
spirit. Other touchdowns were made by Silva, Finster, Andrade,

Of the seven league games played, Don Clarkson's Loman
basketballers trampled all opponents with the lone exception of
Grossmont. Don Larsen, ace Pointer forward, was top scorer with
94 points in five games.
In the season's opener, Point Loma asserted itself by beating
Kearny 49-25. The K-omets threatened several times, but the
Lomans, with Larsen, Silva, and Kaneyuki leading the way, built
up a lead that was never overcome. The second league game with
Oceanside gave the Pointers their second win, a 33-I3 victory
over the Pirates.

A spectacular combination was the result when our pom-pom girls and majorettes in ma-
roon and gold mingled with the drill team and drum corps in maroon and spotless white.
When we saw them perform their intricate routines at the Carnival and at half-time in the
home football games, and their precision marching in parades, we forgave them for their noisy
second period practicing. The fact that they rehearsed after school also was not so well
known, but the perfection they attained was ample proof.
Although the girls organized only last year, they have flourished under the cheerful leader-
ship of Colonel Marilyn Taliaferrog Captains Mary lake, Mary Matsch, and Beverly Crume:
Lieutenants Evelyn Braddock, Helen Ryan, Leola Padgitt, and Sergeant Thelma Fintzelberg.
The pom-pom girls and majorettes undertook another service for the school by selling foot-
ball programs at all home games. This year saw the inauguration by the Drill Team of a
dance which is to be an annual affair. The support which the Point Lomans gave this first
celebration indicates that it will be one of our most popular events.

The Commissioner of Girls' Athletics acts also as the chief officer of the Girls' Athletic
Association, more .commonly known at the G.A.A. Besides Commissioner Fran Maloney, oth-
er first semester officers were Vice-President Jean Wright, Secretary Jo Garcia, and Treas-
urer Jean Wiesler. The G.A.A. at Point Loma is affiliated with a nation-wide organization
under whose rules the girls are able to earn the points required for letters. Every Tuesday and
Thursday after school the members meet in the girls' gym for games and sports. Besides sell-
ing tickets at the gate for home football games, the girls sponsored the enjoyable "Penny
The second semester saw Jean Wiesler elected Commissioner of Girls' Athletics. Her as-
sistants were Vice-President Jo Garcia, Secretary Shirley Sinks, and Treasurer Carmen Lanza.
One of the most amusing events of the spring semester at Point Loma was the G.A.A. spon-
sored baseball game between the perspiring male faculty team and the breezily confident
members of the G.A.A. The game this year ended in a rather novel score: both sides won.
This difficult feat was accomplished by the simple device of having two score-keepers, neither
of whom was above accepting bribes.
The G.A.A. participates every spring in a playday at State College. The members en-
ter games and competitive sports with G.A.A. representatives from other schools. The cli-
max of the year, of course, is the long awaited banquet at which the awards and letters
earned during the year are presented.

The importance ot basic 'Field regulations and modern
warfare tactics is being stressed by the War Department
even though the war is over. Discipline must be tound in
each unit, no matter how large or how small. Something
these cadets learn, whether it be in map reading, tirst aid,
rifle marlcsmanship, combat drill, or in other subjects, may

some day benefit them greatly. Upon shedding the
R.O.T.C. uniforms, Point Loma boys may don uniforms of
the services, and feel completely at home. With reports
that have come back from former R.O.T.C. students, there
is little need to further stress the importance of its part in
military training. The R.O.T.C. is a credit to any school,
and we of Point Loma are extremely proud of ours.
At the annual Field Day, the boys brought many hon-ors
to the school. For the most outstanding unit in San Diego,
they were awarded the Gen. Stilwell Trophy. Cadet Major
Gerald Quick accepted the award fo-r the best battalion,
Cadet Captain Gerald Porter received the trophy for
Company IO as the most outstanding in the city, Cadet
Lt. Ronnie Campbell won the best first-year officer award,
and Cadet Private Horlacher took the prize as the best

.,,,"Aw, why study? Unless ya go out
for sports, ya don't get no glory around
here," is a complaint never heard at
Point Loma. What would you think of a
club whose members are rewarded by
an exclusive "Ditch Day," whose chief
membership requirement is brains? Such
an organization is the California Scholar-
ship Federation, the honor society of
Point Loma High School. Members must
qualify in scholarship, character, leader-
ship in school affairs, and in constructive
school service. Each member receives
a "torch" pin. If a student remains a
member for three semesters, he is al-
lowed to keep this pin: at the end of
four semesters, a "lamp" is awarded:
and, after six semesters, a life member-
ship is granted to the student. C.S.F.
activities, in addition to "Ditch Day,"
consist of an annual dinner complete
with guest speaker, and meetings twice
a month. Mr. Farrar, the club sponsor,
works directly with the President, Bob
Williams: the Vice-President, David
Ryan: the Secretary, Claudia Stevenson:
the Treasurer, Lowell North: and the
Historian, Ethel Williams. This society
unifies the method of rewarding merit
and provides a means of further dis-
tinguishing superior students when they
enter higher institutions of learning.
Leading the Non-Commissioned Of-
ficers' Club in its efforts to improve the
R.O.T.C., we find Jack Peterson, Presi-
dent during the first semester, succeeded
by Bob Cornett. Efficiently performing
their duties in a military manner were
Vice-President Harrison Weaver, Secre-
tary Russell Nelson, and Treasurer Hu-
bert Johnson. The members of this
club, in their social activities as well as
in their business, are fitting examples of
the R.O.T.C. cadets.

enough to benefit them on a projected

The past year in Sea Scout Ship 24
was without doubt a most successful
one. The lifting of restrictions on yacht-
ing enabled the boys, with Skipper Mc-
Kenney, to make numerous worthwhile
cruises in their forty foot motor sailer,
the Gulliver. Some highlights were a
ten day trip to Catalina and another
three day one to the Regional Regatta
at Long Beach. On the social side, the
Sea Scouts enjoyed a barn dance at the
Skipper's ranch, a beach party on Silver
Strand, a moonlight cruise on the bay,
and their memorable Dinner-Dance.
"Putting the out in scouting" is not just
a phrase to them, but a real motto to
lnterspersing its debates and discus-
sions of current affairs with such interest-
ing, variations as "Noah Webster Says"
and "lnformation, Please," the Student
Opinion Club, under Miss Clark, cli-
maxed another successful year with its
annual banquet. Joint toastmasters were
Jack Peterson, first semester President,
and Gerald Porter, who presided during
the second semester.
Organizer for S.O.'s varied programs
during the second semester was Vice-
President Carol Troendly, the program
chairman, who, on behalf of this in-
tellectual group, declined to present a
program called, "lt Pays to be Ignorant."
Palm Sunday Breakfast at Miss Clark's
Grossmont home, the gala S. O. ban-
quet, Christmas caroling, lively debates
with David. Hanna, Leonard Godwin's
vast supply of hilarious wit, and many
other activities are long-to-be remem-
bered niceties of the Student Opinion
