This year the Boy ' s League expanded its activities to include many more boys with the addition of the new Boys ' League Board of Activities. Under the direction of Dick Greene, fall president, and the sponsorship of Mr. Alexander, the Boys ' League enjoyed a highly successful semester. Included in its accomplishments was a joint assembly with the Girls ' League. In the spring semester, the Boys ' League was guided by Tom Pinkerton. Boys ' Week was the outstanding project of the year. One of the events was a contest to choose the most popular girl in school. A Girls ' League-Boys ' League dance called " Hillbilly Hop " wound up a highly successful Boys ' Week. SPRING GIRLS ' LEAGUE EXECUTIVE CABINET Bottom row: J. Charness, M. Gerien. Top row: J.

Activities of a successful year for the Girls ' League began with the tradi- tional new board party. During the fall semester girls from Beverly Hills High School were invited to attend a confer- ence at Uni. Following the conference was an assembly featuring a guest speaker who captivated her audience with a talk on " The Importance of Being a Woman. " Among the many accomplishments of the League was the boosting of school spirit through the sale of Uni buttons. The spring semester highlighted Girls ' Week in which many new and successful activities were introduced. Girls ' day in school began with a junior faculty meeting to brief " new teachers " on methods of teaching. Girls ' Week concluded with " Girl Snub Boy Day " and a picnic for all the girls. Credit for a successful year goes to Karen Fall and Lynn Goldsmith, presidents, and Mrs. Brees, sponsor. FALL GIRLS ' LEAGUE CABINET Bottom row: J. Scudder, K. Fall, President, J. Charness, J.

In the fall semester, the Commissioners brought the problem of declining school spirit to the attention of the student body through the student council. Another accomplishment was the setting up of a bulletin board in the main hall to publicize school activities. In the spring semester, various com- mittees were set up to improve the effi- ciency of the student government. Two of these are the Little Hoover Com- mission and the Finance Committee. In an effort to become better acquainted with other schools and to gain new ideas, the Board of Commissioners in- vited leaders from Beverly Hills High School to a Uni conference. Other ac- complishments of the year were the selection of co-ed officers, control of traffic around Uni, and an analysis of the list of Ephebians. SPRING GIRLS ' LEAGUE CABINET Bottom roir: B.

Through the advice and guidance of the Student Court and the Boards of Hearing, many students at Uni were able to solve their personal problems. Bob Billings and Dean Ambrose as chief justices presided over all sessions. One of the accomplishments of the year was the compiling of a revised list of violations to help the Service Organizations enforce school rules. The Boards of Hear- ing particularly stressed that their function is not to punish stu- dents, but to help them with their problems. SPRING GIRLS ' BOARD OF HEARING Bottom row: J. Robison, P.

Acting as a bridge between the student body and Government, the Student Council functions to inform Warriors and also make suggestions to im- prove school activities. Meeting once a month, the Student Council members are given an agenda prepared by the Leadership class. Using the agenda as a guide, the members discuss school problems and possible solutions. One of the accomplishments of the Student Council this year was the promotion of a courtesy campaign which convinced Uniites that " courtesy pays dividends.

PRESSES ROLL OUT CHIEF ARTIST Tom Yasuda From the first click of the typewriter to the last roll of the presses, the Chieftain Staff, guided by Miss Barbara Canady and Co-Editors Kathy Harper and Ginger Wiggans, worked dili- gently to produce your 1956 Chieftain. Assisting the Annual Production Class was the Chieftain Art Class who, under the sponsorship of Miss Darcy Hayman and leadership of Chief Artist Tom Yasuda, deserve congratulations for the spectacular illus- trations seen throughout this book. All in all, the many hours of careful work put out by the two classes were well rewarded by the final result. CHIEFTAIN ART STAFF Bottom row: A. Dailey, T. Yasuda, division sheets; R.

Wingard, the hard-working staff of the Uni Warrior started a milestone year under Fall Co-Editors Thelma Culverson and Leni Gault. Doing a creditable job in the field of ads were Commis- sioners of Publications Ray Fisher and Linda Tuttle. Phyllis Garfield and Carol Hannum, Warrior Co-Editors for the Fall, saw the paper shift into high gear and begin production of a weekly paper to replace the previous bi-monthly, thus bringing more current and interesting news to the student body. Highlights of the year included two great graduation issues and the unusual number for April Fool ' s Day. SPRING WARRIOR STAFF Bottom row: M. Kaplan, S. Novak, B. Chertok. Top row: H.

The band, under the baton of Mr. Salvatore Spano, received a " Superior " rating in the Los Angeles city festival for the fifth consecutive year. It was also one of the few high school bands invited to U.C.L.A. to give a concert. In May this same band presented Uni ' s fifth annual Band Show to a record audience. Earlier in the year, the vocal representatives of the music department entertained Uniites, as the A Cappella Choir, directed by Mrs. Edith Provan, presented an inspiring program, " Music of America. " Musical background for the Suit- able Dress Board ' s fashion show was provided by the Girls ' Glee Club.

Y CLUBS LINK FUN AND SERVICE " To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character, " these are the aims of the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A.-sponsored clubs on the Uni campus. To fulfill these aspirations, both Hi-Y and Tri-Y clubs have been constantly engaged in service, charity, and athletic projects which benefit every student in the school. Included in these activities are the organization of the noon motion pictures, presentation of the annual Widney High Wheelchair Basketball Game, and the promotion of an interclub basketball tournament for the Hi-Y ' s. Among the outstanding accomplishments of the various Tri-Y organizations were the memorable Silver Ball and Carnival Dance, the planning of projects for many underpriv- ileged groups, and the coordination of many notable school affairs.

While still perfecting their new single-wing-t offense, which was introduced by mentor Beck, the Warriors met their first grid opponents. In their first game against Washington, the Braves felt strongly their lack of offensive and defensive backs and were outscored 13-2, with both the opponent ' s touchdowns coming from aerials. A week later against the Banning Pilots, Uni was led defensively by tackle, Bruce Englehardt, but due to the quick-hitting, 240 pound Pilot line, the Warriors were out played 26-7.

Frank Rodriguez, Clayton Legreid, Bob Troxler, Tom WARRIOR VARSITY FIRST STRING Yasuda, and Jim Sternberg were all instrumental in stopping the Gondolier ' s flashy backs, Winoker and Sarian. In the Braves second victory, it was the sharp passing of sophomore Danny Hernandez and the catching of ends, Pete Hoag and Frank Rodriguez, that spurred a 20-13 defeat for the Yankees. Dave Hoyt ' s expert punting also proved to be one of the Warrior ' s most effective offensive weapons all season. In the League finale against Fairfax, a lack of defensive backs permitted a 34-14 loss to the aerial minded Colonials. A superior defensive exhibition by Tom Yasuda led the great Uni line in a rushing attack against the Fairfax passer, Mike Longo. As all teams must, the persimmon-and-blue eleven had their stars. Frank Rodriguez, end, and Tom Yasuda, tackle, copped first team All-League honors. Center, Clayton Legreid; guard, Bob Ti-oxler; and fullback, Joel Woolf, were awarded with second team All-League honors. Although taking but third in the league, with just an average season, the Uni varsity placed five players on the All-League Team, the largest number in ten years. Is it or isn ' t it? Marques returns punt BEES CAPTURE WESTERN LEAGUE CROWN This year the Bee Football team, under Coach Anisman, had a successful season, as they smashed all opposition and cap- tured the Western League Championship. Rocking upsets over strong Marshall and Hollywood teams inspired our gridders to defeat their age-old rivals from Venice, 6-0. Although missing an undefeated, unscored upon season by a heartbreaking loss in the last game with Fairfax, the grid greats were rewarded with the coveted Western League Cup and words of praise from Coach Anisman. Congratulations are in order for Woody Malin for his top scoring of 34 points and to Kenny Naramura, who was named City Player of the Year. Also honored for their fine playing were Billy Tateishi, Dave Cushman, Gene Mochizuki, and Tom Hayashi.

WAGE FAVORABLE SEASON Having a tremendous precedent to follow in the paths of the record breaking teams of the past two seasons, the boys, after a slow start, came through to give Uni another winning team The Uni quintet, after losing three out of four hard fought practice games, faced the Western League competition with a deter- mination to do better. What happened next would have crushed a lesser team: the Mar- vinmen lost the first two league games to Marshall and Uni ' s old rival, Hollywood. Tense Moment Miller and Clements Jump Ball These two close games were lost by two and one point margins gained by the opponents in the last seconds of play. Our boys were winning the Hollywood game by one point until a Hollywood man sank a fantastic last second half court shot. After this heart break- ing defeat, Uni dropped the third league game to the eventual league champs, Venice. Down, but not out, Uni smashed both Hamilton and Fairfax; never has the taste of victory done so much for a team. Uni ' s hoopmen, hungry for revenge, swept the second round, slaugh- tering Hollywood on their own court to make up for the previous heart breaking loss. As far as personal accomplishments go, Kent Miller ' s performance in the second Fairfax game stands out. He scored 44 points for a new school record and up until the last quarter he had more points to his credit than did the whole Fairfax team. This win placed the team in a tie for second place in the Western League and entitled Uni J. Mendelson G. Taylor J. Stahler K. Miller to play in the City Tournament. Most of the sport writers had very little to say about Uni ' s chances, but it wasn ' t the first time the boys had been underrated. In the first round the hardwooders faced a strong Westchester five and came out on the long end of a 50 to 56 score. No one gave Unihi much hope to beat San Pedro, the team which had beaten Manual Arts the week before, but again the boys proved their worth by trimming Pedro 56-51. The score in the loss to Jefferson in the next round, 73 to 59, doesn ' t tell the real story of the game. No team in the tournament could have beaten Uni ' s five during the first quarter, at the end of which they were 13 points ahead. However, Jeff, with their two platoon system, slowly wore the boys down and in the final frame widened the gap in points. Following the loss to Jefferson, Uni was left to battle North Hollywood for consolation honors. After leading decisively throughout the second half, the Warrior team eased up a little too much and finally lost by a one point margin. At the conclusion of the tournament, Kent Miller was named the outstanding de- fensive player of the tournament in addition to being placed on the all-tournament first team. When the All-League ratings came out, Kent Miller was placed on the first team and forward Jerry Randolph on the second team. The All-City rankings showed Kent Miller on the third team. Other members of the team, besides those L. Mason J. Kurokowa J. Van Atta D. Collis It ' s a Swish Frantic Jump already mentioned, who came through with fine performances during the year include Lee Mason, Chris Barker, Don Collis, Roger Thornton, and John Van Atta. John Kuro- kowa, Bob Elias, and Gordon Taylor helped to complete a fine squad. In general, the close of the season found a team of which the student body could be proud. Earlier, this team, in losing 6 of its first 7 games had given Coach Marvin quite a scare, for never in his many years of coaching had he coached a team which lost more games than it won. Only by winning its next 9 games in a row was it possible for this team to finish with a record of 10 wins and 8 losses, thereby pre- serving the record of a fine coach. N. Gaylord R. Thornton C.

TENNIS SQUAD REVEALS DEXTERITY Beginning the season with spectacular wins at the Dudley- Cup Interscholastic Tournament, the far-famed University net- men appear destined for an unprecedented third consecutive City Championship. The tennis squad, built around the nucleus of Roger Werksman, Rawson Lloyd, and Richard Mosk, seeded second, twelfth, and nineteenth in the nation respectively, is destined for a great season, according to Coach Jerry Marvin. Werksman will be in line to defend his City Championship Singles title, while Lloyd and Mosk, City Doubles Champs, will also be strong contenders for regional honors. Rounding out the champion squad will be Dave Weiss and Roger Towne in the remaining sin gles positions, while Chris Barker, Richard Covey, Bruce Froelich, and Jim Epstein form the probable doubles combinations.

AS SPIKES FLASH, CINDERS BURN Under the expert tutelage of mentor Jim Pursell, the defending 1955 Western League track and field Champions are making remarkable strides toward capturing a second consecutive title. Possessing strength and depth in almost every event, the team produced standouts in individual events with Kent Miller in the high-jump, hurdles, and shot put, Johnny Giba as sprinter, and Marshall Johnson as dis- tance runner. More record breakers were Kemp Aaberg in the C pole vault and John Kirwin in the B broad jump. Will " Curley " clear the bar? Troxler to Greene— the baton changes hands. Yasuda and Miller clear the hurdles The high jump presents a challenge Uni ' s dual power came in the hurdles and sprints, with Miller and Giba starring to top the Marshall Barristers, 67-37. After the exciting start of the season, the Warrior thinclads quickly conquered Holly- wood and Venice. The Venice Gondoliers saw besides speedy John Giba, a 12-foot pole vault by John Stahler, a 52 foot 7 ' L inch fling by Tom Yasuda, and a 4:39.5 mile by Marshall Johnson, as he became the eighth fastest miler in the history of Uni. Uni ' s chances for annexing the dual-meet championship depended on the Hamilton tussel, and all the boys responded. Lee Mason high-jumped 5 feet HH2 inches; Stahler pole vaulted 12 feet, and Giba ran the 100 and 440 in times of :10.2 and :50.6 respectively. Kemp Aaberg, C pole vaulter, broke the school record with a vault of 10 feet 9 inches; while John Kirwin, a B broad jumper, broke the long hop record with a leap of 21 feet 4 l A inches. Such an enviable record by no means came from lack of stiff competition or mere accident, but it is due to good coaching, material, and sportsmanship. As the Chieftain goes to press, the Fairfax, league, and city meets are still to be held. Undoubtedly, the remaining contests will bring more praise to Uni through the efforts of the track team.

Spaeter Forsythe and Meier pumping HORSEHIDERS SWING INTO HIGH GEAR The Warrior baseball team, under the supervision of Coach Bill Spaeter, played heads-up ball and experienced a successful season. The team included moundsmen Norm Forsythe and Terry Meier, with Mike Gursey as backstop. Covering the bases were Dan Ardell on first, Tom Hansen on second, Dan Laskowitz at shortstop, and Roger Thornton as de- fender of the hot corner. In the outer-gardens the task of catching flys was handled by Neil Hurst, Don Collis, Meier and Forsythe. The reserves included Lynn Fox, Chuck Royce Ronnie Stein, Mike Gleason, Carl Jent, and Gene Olson. In a tough practice slate, the Warriors won two and lost two.

In the next practice game, Norm Forsythe threw an outstand- ing three-hitter against the Westchester Comets, defeating them 1-0. A week later after these two straight wins, the boys met the powerful Culver City team. At the end of the game, the scoreboard read, Culver City 5, Uni 2. In the following and last practice game of the season, the Warriors met the Tigers of San Fernando, loop contenders for the Valley League title. With the game going into the last inning, Neil Hurst promptly hit a three- run homer tying the score at 4-4. After two extra innings of hard fought, head-up ball, the Tiger ' s pitcher blasted a home run over Hurst ' s head to down the Braves 5-4. On the opening clay of the season the boys in blue and grey hosted the Marshall Bar- risters. With fine pitching by " Slats " Foresythe, timely hitting by Roger Thornton, and " Spook " Meier, and expert bunting by Tom Hanson, the Warriors won their first league game 3-2. With several games yet to be played as the Chieftain goes to press, the team seems assured of a fine season. J. V. TEAM COLOR GUARD J. Amos, D. Dater, J. Zehender, B. Hixson, R.

Also congratulations are in order for Cadet Captain Douglas Parsons and Cadet Master Sergeant Philip Mautino as respective commanders of the best platoon, and squad in city wide competition. An annual trip to Fort MacArthur was an enjoyable one as the cadets from Uni, Hami, and L.A. got a taste of army camp life. The trip included a night compass course, the firing of Ml and .22 cal. rifles, and a midnight tactical problem in which Uni kept its undefeated record by emerging victorious. In February, the R.O.T.C. open house was a resounding success as the student body and parents were familiarized with the various weapons and equipment used by our cadets. Having placed second in the British United Service Competition and with the annual Federal Inspection yet to go, the Uni R.O.T.C. will round off a highly successful year. DRILL TEAM G.A.A.
