Class C Footballers Experiencing a fairly successful season, Polytechnic ' s Class C gridiron squad, under the guidance of Coaches Williams, Beckner, and Leahy, won three out of their five league games and tied another. Beginning the season with three consecutive wins, the Parrots slowed up after the Manual game, tying Garfield and losing to L.A. The opening conflict ended with Poly on the long end of a 13 to score. Though not outstanding, the Parrot team played well and was never in a dangerous position. Working like an automaton , the Yellowjackets proved invincible in their game with Fremont, winning by a score of 20 to 0. A blocked punt proved to be the difference between a tie and victory in the Manual game, which was won by the locals, 6 to 0. Though the next week was a bye, the Class C squad played a practice game with the Franklin eleven, in which the locals came out on the long end of a 21 to score. Eleven fighting Garfield pups managed to hold the Parrakeets to a 6 to 6 tie score in the fourth league game of the season. Ending any title hopes which the C ' s had, L.A. played host to the Mechanics and sent them home with a stinging 13 to 12 defeat. The score was close, but a heavier L.A. squad managed to push over the extra point, which meant victory. Lee and Tanaka in the backfield and Henderson on the line seemed to be outstanding on the local squad, but their mates proved to be notable competitors. Lettermen were: Captain Lee, Failes, Tanaka, Zarrow, Donichi, Henderson, Tamaki, Cisneros, Thun, Santiestevan, Tom, Friedman, Babjian, Moses, Prioleau, Pusina, Bilkiss, Ha, Lucas, McNeilly, DeRenne, Newman, Keller, and Manager Devron. 125

Polytechnic ' s Varsity Qigers Winning four out of their six league games, the Mechanics finished in a tie for third place and experienced a most successful season. As in the pre- ceding season, the Mechanics started slowly, but once they struck their stride they were unstoppable. Under the coaching of " Pop " Jesson, the team rounded into shape after the Roosevelt game and defeated L.A. for the first time in many years. Lester Valley and Bob Duncan were the only re- turning lettermen. Captain George Noll, Lester Valley, Ed Bartholomew, Harden Wells, Sam Robman, Bob Duncan, Ivan McCloskey, and Basil Perkins were awarded their varsity letters at the close of the season. Joe Nelson received his manager ' s letter. Though no one was picked for the first string All-City five, both Lester Valley and Harden Wells were selected on the second team. HoUywood A hard-fought battle, ending in a victory for Hollywood, set Polytechnic ' s varsity back a notch in the first league, game of the current season. The final score, 26 to 19, does not indicate the closeness of the game nor the ferocity with which the two teams fought throughout the game. 127
