VENICE HIGH SIIHIJUL
THE WHITE HOUSE
December 7, 1939
Deer Miss Church: ,
Your letter of November twenty-eighth,
requesting a signed photograph of the President for
inclusion in the yearbook of Venice High School, has
been referred to me for acknowledgment.
I am sorry to advise that due to the
terrific pressure of official business the President
has found it necessary, of late, to place a complete
ban on autogrephing and other similar chores. However,
I am enclosing an uncopyrighted, glossy print of
the President, without his signature, and truly
hope it will meet your needs.
I regret also that because the President
receives so many requests for personal messages for
inclusion in school year books, he has been obliged
to adopt the policy of not sending such messages.
I am sure, upon reflection, you will understand how
busy the President is just now and how impossible it
is for him to do mary little things which in different
circumstances he would be very glad to do.
Very sincerely yours,
Secretary to the Presid nt

Russell Brines, Summer '28 graduate and former
student body president of Venice High School, is
now Associated Press correspondent in Tokyo, Japan.
The world's present darkness makes
America more beautiful than ever before.
lt is beautiful because hope lives and is
nurturedg because ideas are a challenge, not
a whipg because our brains and brawn are
for construction, not destruction. America
will be beautiful so long as we continue to
think clearly, thoroughly and honestly.
The frontiers of tomorrow will lie as
surely within the human heart and the hu-
man mind as on the fringe ofa distant land.
When peace returns, man must rehabilitate
himself while reconstructing what he has
destroyed. The rest of the world will turn
to America for new faith, new courage, new
freedom. And she will depend upon you
who are young today for the energy and the
determination to restore humaneness to
mankind. Above all other nations she has
granted you the freedom and the means to
think. That is your heritage, Each cannon
roar makes it more priceless.

Just one week before his death, Venice
High School received the photograph and
inspirational message found on this page
from Hamlin Garland, internationally ac-
claimed literary historian of the Middle-
west and life on the wind-swept prairies.
This section will serve not only as a dedi-
cation to this noted author but as an "ln
Memoriam" to one to whom the world
owes a deep debt of gratitude.
To the Students of Venice High School:
'That a wave of patriotic rejoicing is sweep'
ing over the Nation is evident. Our citizens
are saying: Kilt is true that there are many
crudities in our lives and shortfcomings in our
government but with all that can be said
against it-our America is at this moment
the most peaceful and the most prosperous of
all the nations of the earth."
To our own songs in praise of uAmerica
the Beautiful," thousands of exiles from the
warring OLD World, add their hymns of ref
joicing: K'Even if we find it hard to make a
living we are at least safe from the cannon
and the bombing plane."
We in California are especially blessed. We
have almost perennial sun, ever fruitful trees
and rains abundant enough to insure another

No institution in America, educational or oth-
erwise, could possibly select a more appropriate
theme for guidance at this time than "America
the Beautiful." ln contrast with the strife and
suffering rampant throughout the world today,
America in its beauty and its worthiness stands
out as a glowing beacon of the acme in modern
civilization. To have even a slight understand-
ing of the plight of other peoples of the world
tends to clarify our vision, remove confusion
from our minds, and present a true picture of
America the beautiful and Americanism - the
To maintain America as the beautiful, as the
desirable, its citizens must adhere closely to the
principles and practices of Americanism as made
manifest in the pages of this publication.
American democracy functions through insti-
tutions such as the home, the courts, the schools,
political parties, community organizations
churches, and the like. The principles, activities,
and accomplishments of these and many such in-
stitutions constitute what is known as American-
ism. Consequently, the preservation and progress
of Americanism are based on the American-
like manner by which each of these institutions
As an American institution, and hence an in-
tegral factor in this great institutional scheme
that constitutes Americanism, Venice High
School has its part to play. We-students, par-
ents, teachers - along with other institutions,
have before us continuously the challenge to
think, act, and accomplish in a manner by which
Venice High School will make an ever greater
and greater contribution toward the maintenance
and improvement of "America the Beautiful."

At Venice High School are four co-ordinators,
who work with the vice-principals and the principal
in promoting activities in their special fields. The en-
tire group is known as the Co-ordinating Council.

Counselors came into being many years ago as a
result of diversified courses and increased high school
enrollments. The purpose of the counselor is to re-
lieve the principal and vice-principals by aiding them
in directing the school's guidance program,
The picture shows Counselor Stephanie A. Berthot
guiding a student in planning her program. ln the
background is Mrs. Florence Wadsworth, assistant in
the counselors' office.
The purpose of the Venice High School attend-
ance office is to encourage students to develop good
habits of regular attendance and of punctuality. That
this aim is being realized is attested by the fact that
Venice ranked in the upper third among the city high
schools in its average daily attendance this year. Mrs.
Elsie McLaughlin, registrar, is shown at her desk.
Consulting her is Mrs. Clara Swanson, clerk in the
The aim of the Venice High School library is to
serve the entire student body by providing reference
work and reading material, and to encourage students
to read more extensively in various fields of literature
such as the novel, drama, short story, poetry, biog-
raphy, and essay. Students are taught to use reference
material in the school library so that they do likewise
in any other library, with intelligence and discrimina-

THE HIE LTY
This department aims to give students an opportun-
ity better to equip themselves to meet life experiences
through a thorough knowledge of the English lan-
guage, which may be obtained from intelligent read-
ing, oral communication, writing, sympathetic listen-
ing, and an acquaintanceship with some masterpieces
of literature. ln the picture are Mrs. Florence Taylor,
Mrs. Louise Millar, Mrs, jane Hunter, Mrs. Gertrude
lllingworth lchairmanl, Mrs. Gretchen Kirby, Miss
Bertha Biggs, seated, Miss Harriett Willett, Miss
Anna East, Mrs. Ruth Rous, Miss Flora Schrack, Miss
Violet Biscoe, Miss Margaret McGarry, and Miss
Charlotte Davis, standing.
To develop students into better citizens is the pur-
pose of the social studies department. According to
Chairman Courtney Overin, "By showing what men
have thought in the past, by living together coopera-
tively in the present, we can project ourselves into
that near future when we shall assume our complete
responsibility in this great Democracy." Identified in
the picture, in the foreground are Karyl Witty, Miss
Helen Copeland, Miss Edith Burns, Miss Viola Gehlen,
Courtney S. Overin, Miss Laura Danielson, standing,
in rear, Miss lsabel Orton, Miss Gladys Hathaway, and
I The mathematics department teaches students hab-
its, attitudes, and abilities that will be of value in
everyday life, such as habits of accuracy, orderliness,
self-reliance, attitudes of respect for knowledge and
good workmanship, ability to think clearly, to gather
and organize data. Math teachers seated in the pic-
ture are Miss Margaret Beamish ichairmanl, Leslye
Boatman, William Lustie, Miss Katherine Klein-
knechtg standing, joshua Hoover, Mrs. Ethel Milling-
ton, jerome Van Zandt, Clell Rogers, and Sherman
Chaney. Mrs. Dorothy Pool took Dr. Van Zandt's
place during the spring term.
ln the science department subjects are studied not
only for the purpose of broadening pupils' minds but
also to train them in scientific thinking, such as ex-
perimenting intelligently on problems of natural phe-
nomena and then drawing conclusions from the re-
sults obtained. Courses offered include general
science, life science, physical science, physiology,
chemistry, and physics. Reading left to right in the
picture are Charles Harris, William Wilson, Alma
Richards, Miss Grace Abbot, Miss Albertine Pendle-
ton, Edwin Hadley lchairmanl, Carl Spring, and
The foreign language department trains students
in precision, accuracy, and fluency in the use of a for-
eign tongue and promotes international understand-
ing, tolerance, and good-will. Latin, French, and
Spanish are all offered at Venice. Miss Martha Ward
is chairman and also director of Venice's classical mu-
seum, famous for its collection of rare antiquities. Ap-
pearing in the picture are Mrs. Ruth McKoane, Mrs.
Edna Bell, Miss Alice Applegate, Miss Martha Ward,
and Mrs. Maria Schreiber.
VOCATIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL ARTS
This department offers to boys at Venice several
standard industrial arts shops of the most modern de-
sign, arrangement, and equipment. ln them they can
find ample opportunities in drafting, cabinet making,
foundry, woodworking, patternmaking, general metal
and sheet metal, printing, machine shop, electricity,
radio, and aircraft sheet metal fabrication. Left to
right in the picture are Ernest Champion, Elmer A.
Bull lchairmani, Marcelin E. Riley, Clell Rogers, C.
H. Womble, Irving Fordham, Edward Crandall, Drew
Amo, and Ira Woodard.
Proper choice of a profession or job and adequate
training for it are important factors for high school
students. The commercial department, taking cog-
nizance of this, offers opportunity for development of
personality and earning capacity in four different
fields of business-bookkeeping, clerical, salesman-
ship, and stenography. In the picture Miss Aure
Tucker, Mrs. Winifred Wood ichairmanl, and Miss
Belle Patterson are seated. Standing are Burton Oli-
ver, directing students in their work, Mrs. Helen Ran-
dall, and Ted Langpaap.
Miss Helen Tibbetts, secretary lseated at center
deski and Miss Lucille Douglas, junior clerk, have
charge of the main office. They receive and direct
visitors, supply general information, assist the prin-
cipal, and issue daily bulletins. Mrs. Helen Crutcher
lstandingi files demerits, has charge of the book-
room, and encourages students to care for school
property. Myron W. Arbogast, as student body busi-
ness manager, handles all school finances. Miss Tib-
betts was absent during the first term, Miss Mildred
Winger temporarily filling her place.
THE HIE LTY
To develop in students abundant interests, ideals,
and habits for healthy, useful, and therefore happy
adult lives, to instill good sportsmanship so that stu-
dents are fit physically, mentally, and morally-these
are the aims of the girls' and boys' physical education
departments. ln the front row of the picture are
Grayson Turney, Mrs. Effie Morrison, Mrs. Vivien
Dingle lchairmanl, and Mrs. Mary Piersong in the
back row are Charles C-reen lchairmanl, Benjamin
MacFarland, Miss Carolyn Mitchill, lack Hughes, john
Bell, and Miss Allene Rowan.
This department aims to help students gain knowl-
edge and skills which will make for better family re-
lationships and happier homes, to acquire better un-
derstanding of nutrition and maintenance of maxi-
mum health, and to help girls appreciate the import-
ance of their calling-establishing and maintaining a
home on a sound biological, social, and economic
basis. Miss Maude Rivenburgh, Miss Mae McKinley,
and Miss Minnie Allen are seated in the photograph.
Standing are Mrs. Evelyn Loibl, Mrs. Ella May Cran-
dall lchairmanl, and Mrs. l-lelen Rockoff.
The music department aims to arouse enthusiasm
for a better understanding of good music: to train and
guide students so that their lives may be enriched
musically, and to provide musical experience and op-
portunities for participation of many students in
bands, orchestras, choruses, and glee clubs. The music
department assists at many assemblies, at plays, com-
mencement exercises, and sponsors special musical as-
semblies. ln the picture are Mrs. Litta Matt, David
Schlosser, Miss Myrtle Blewett lchairmanl, and Reid
The art department endeavors to maintain a high
standard of creative art. Students have ample oppor-
tunity to express themselves in drawing, painting, pot-
tery, and design. With the growing demand for more
beautiful products, there is a greater need for a de-
velopment of artistic appreciation on the part of the
students, for beauty is always as important as utility
in the development of all products of the industries.
Art teachers, as identified in the picture, include De-
partment Chairman Harry Winebrenner, Mrs. Cladys
Finley, Mrs. Mary Moran, and Miss Elsie johnson.

judges of the Student Court are selected at the semi-annual elections by
the student body, in the same manner as most of the other officers The
Chief justice, however, is chosen from the judges of the previous semester
by the Central Committee, of which he then becomes a member. Each judge
must serve on the bench at least three days a week. The Chief justice on
the other hand, is there everyday to take care of special cases.
Court convenes every second period upon the ringing of the half period
bell, when all offenders come before the judges and are tried. By conducting
such an activity, the democratic idea of student self-government is exercised
to the fullest. The Student Court is under the supervision of Ray B Shaw
boys' vice-principal, and has as adviser Mrs. Edna Bell. Mrs. Helen Crutcher
is in charge of sending out all charges, summons, and of recording the func
tions. jackie Williams served as Chief justice during the first semester and

DEDICATED T0 ADMIRAL BYRD
To Richard E. Byrd, pilgrim and pioneer
of today, explorer and colonizer of
Antarctica, the Gondolier staff dedicates
the following section. Admiral Byrd, on
his scientifically planned expeditions, has
carried the American flag into new wil-
dernesses, the frontiers of today. Possess-
ing indomitable courage, initiative, and
love of adventure, Richard Byrd has all
the qualities that also typify YOUNG
AMERICA. As such, he has become the
ideal of many a high school boy searching
for new horizons.

Last of Americals great pioneers is Rear Admiral
Richard E. Byrd, who in his three expeditions to
Antarctica has shed new light on this vast and rnysf
terious area. Since the death of Amundsen in 1928,
Byrd is considered the world's number one explorer.
In his Jirst two trips to the Antarctic, he explored
450,000 square miles of unknown lands.
In November of 1939 Admiral Byrd sailed aboard
his flagship NORTH STAR for new adventure and
exploration in the icy, windfswept wastes of Ant'
arctica. His latest scientihcally planned expedition
will be of great value to geographers, geologists, and
botanists. He has added new mountain peaks, an
island, and 300 miles of hitherto unexplored coastf
line to charts of the Antarctic region. In Palmerf
land, Byrd found a large lake which he estimates
has been frozen from 10,000 to 20,000 years. Geof
logical and botanical fossils of both woods and
leaves prove that this territory was once tropical.
Dynamite blasting revealed evidence of wood coal
on mountain heights. Copper, silver, and lead def
posits were also found.
Who knows but that within another century
Antarctica, because of the explorations of Richard
Byrd, may become as valuable a fund of natural
resources as is Alaska, once referred to as "Seward,s

DEDICATED T0 J. EDGAR HOOVER
Peace, harmony, freedom of living ac-
cording to one's own interpretation-these
are three priceless gems of the American
people under their democratic form of
government. We owe safekeeping of this
heritage to our law-enforcing agencies,
among the greatest being the Federal
Bureau of Investigation. T-o John Edgar
Hoover, head of the F.B.l., this section is
gratefully and sincerely dedicated.

To the Students of Venice High School,
AMERICA-today stands as a beacon of
liberty among all nations. Our forefathers
laid down their lives to secure and perpetuate
our freedom. The youth of our lan-d have inf
herited this right to freedom, and with it the
responsibility to preserve that inheritance by
living honorable, upright lives.
Do not be misled by the suggestions of
those who speak of liberty in terms of for'
eign 'iismsfl but learn to evaluate a thing for
what it is. By adherence to the principles
which we have held dear for centuries we
will maintain the majesty of America, and
our liberty will be guaranteed by the laws of
the greatest Democracy.

WHO KILLED BjORN FAULKNER? Around
this question revolved the theme of the court-
room mystery drama, "Night of january l6th,"
presented by the senior dramatics class under
the direction of Mrs. Ruth Rous on january
Roles of the district and defense attorneys
were capably enacted by Ned Dressler and
Douglas Wilson. Lenore Wenger carried off
honors as Karen Andre, accused secretary of
the murdered man, while Marjorie Marinelli
was excellent as the innocent - appearing
widow. Highly successful in evoking laughs
from the audience were Lorraine Williams,

a hard-boiled gangster, and Neil Peterson re-

ence earlier in the evening.

ln place of a tense mystery-drama, the sec-

"june Mad," sparkling comedy of modern
youth by Ryerson and Clements. The play,
which was presented May lO under the direc-
tion of Miss lsabel Orton, centered about Pen-
ny Woods, typical modern girl, and her amus-
ing business of growing up.
Betty johnson was outstanding in the role
of the tomboy Penny, who forgets to be a
man-hater when Roger Van Fleck, college play
boy, appears on the scene. Ned Dressler, dis-
trict attorney in the winter play, was equally
well cast as the college "killer-diller," while
another capable actor was Ray Eurgeson as
Chuck Harris, the boy from next door with a
glider-complex. Neil Peterson again gave a

besides studying body needs and essential food
values. They then apply this knowledge by
planning menus, serving meals, studying home

LATIN BECOMES ALIVE
Miss Martha Ward's Latin students do re-
search work in the classical museum adjoining
the classroom. Employing the laboratory
method of learning Latin, their study of this
ancient language and of ancient civilizations
becomes to them a living thing.
In Mrs. Alma Pence's part-time classes she
conducts a home-making class for her contin-
uation girls in order to prepare them as future
housewives or better domestic workers. Girls
with training in cooking receive much better
pay than unskilled domestic workers.
Potential artists, under the supervision of
Mrs, Mary Moran, learn knowledge of bal-
ance, proportion, and values through water
color medium. Costume design and poster
work are the chief interests of many of these
talented art students.
Woodshop is a subject in which one's mind
and hand co-ordinate in woodwork produc-
tion. Among the many types of woodwork the
boys engage in are book shelves, reading ta-
bles, and paddleboards. I-Iowever, I. E. Ford-
ham encourages development of good citizen-
ship as well as dexterity with the hands.
Typists acquire accuracy, speed, and sound
concentration through drills and timed writ-
ings presented by Mrs. Helen Randall. They
develop skill in typing proper business letters,
manuscripts, menus, and index cards.
Miss Minnie AIIen's first aid students fa-
miliarize themselves with numerous accidents
that occur each day and learn how to take care
of the victims. Proper application of bandages,
artificial respiration, and means of checking
bleeding are actually practiced.
Emphasizing spelling, punctuation, and syl-
Iabication together with manual dexterity for
hands and fingers, IVI. E, Riley offers boys an
exploratory experience in the field of printing,
and composition. Printing the weekly Oars-
man, the monthly Rower, innumerable pro-
grams and office "jobs" keeps this depart-
ment one of the busiest in the school.

To that great hero of the days when
America faced its gravest moments, to a
man who is as much respected and rev-

A strong, determined youth from a small
Missouri town read a notice in the local paper
one day of a competitive examination for the
appointment of a cadet to the United States
Military Academy at West Point. lt was this
small incident that was to determine the fu-
ture military career of john j. Pershing, a man
of noble and sterling character, and one of
only five in the history of our United States
to be honored with the permanent rank of
. . . . . A group of men had just embarked
from a boat docked at Boulogne, France. In the
middle stood one of commanding presence, six
feet tall, broad-shouldered, with a face that
bespoke both dignity and determination. That
man was General Pershing, first American
officer to land in Europe in l9l7.
ln General Pershing's life he has proved
himself a hero in war and in peace. He has
remained a true soldier, honest, courageous,
ready both to take and to give ordersg a man
who has been ever ready to serve his country
in every possible way.

DE ELUPI G SPUHTSMANSHIP
Development of moral, intellectual, and social qualities among the boys of Ven-
ice has been ably carried out by the five coaches. Constituting this amiable, hard-
working and understanding quintet, are Charles N. Green, veteran department
head, john A. Bell, Grayson O. Turney, Ben F, McFarland, and lack lVl. Hughes.
Aside from managing numerous gym activities, lVlr. Green was the inspirational
trainer of the three Venetian top-notch track teams. To Mr. Bell goes credit for
turning out the championship lightweight football team and for the splendid organ-
ization of the Managers' Club. Grayson Turney receives the laurels for the fine per-
formances of the varsity football, varsity baseball, and Bee baseball teams. Mr. Tur-
ney is also sponsor of the Varsity lvlr. McFarland's mentoring has focused at-
tention upon the Gondolier racket-wielders, who made a splendid showing, and var-
sity and Bee casaba tossers. The past year's capable coach of the swimming squads,
gym team, and championship Cee and Dee hoopster units has been lack Hughes,
popularly known as "Applejack" Hughes.
Starting out the football season with a pep assembly, Dick Cosenza and his three assistants kept the
Venetlanlrooters spirited. The four yell leaders, pictured in order above, were Mas Okamoto, Sammie
Caylor, Richard Cosenza, and Bob Young.

Coach Grayson Turney's call to football practice for the '39 season was answered by some sixty
gridiron aspirants, among them eight returning Iettermen. With this octet of veterans from which
to build a squad, Coach Turney developed a fast tricky eleven which tied with Hamilton for second
in the final league standings and which scored its most decisive victory of the season by beating
the loop champs, the LA. Romans, l9 to l3, in the final tilt.
Before the start of the league season, a line-up averaging l74 pounds, was selected. The for-
ward wall was composed of Brumfield and Captain Mickey Doyle at ends, Bob Doyle and Ward at
tackles, Thompson and Kirkman at guards, with Rosier at the pivot spot. ln the backfield were
Beyrouty and Schade at halfbacks, Bushman at quarterback, and "Bud" McCormac at fullback. The
Venetians trounced Redondo, San Pedro, and Banning in practice sessions. After dropping their
first two league games the Condo-gridders came to life in mid-season to win their last three en-
counters, against University, Fairfax, and Los Angeles.

A two-point safety in the first period proved the margin of defeat for the Gondo-
liers in their first league encounter. Going into the second half on the short end of a
l4 to O score, the Turneymen came back to tally twice. lnitial Venetian score came in
the third quarter when Rosier, intercepting an aerial bomb, lateraled to Saenz, who
raced i5 yards for a touchdown. Final C-ondolier count came in the fourth quarter
after halfback Beyrouty snagged a bullet pass from quarterback Bushman and ran some
thirty yards to a touchdown. Tackle Mickey Doyle and backs Bushman, Saenz, and
Beyrouty played exceptional ball.

Four minutes later, mighty Chiniquy of Hamilton circled his own right end for the single Yan-

Training at the end of the first half l9 to 7, a determined Venice eleven came back in the final
two sessions to stage a brilliant offensive, trouncing the Colonials 26 to l9. Fairfax, according to
pre'-game dope, had a twenty-point edge over the Turneymen. A combination of Saenz, Beyrouty,
Bushman, Rosier, lVlcCormac, and the two fighting lrishmen, Mickey and Bob Doyle, proved to be
the undoing of the Colonials and Ed Harrison, their All-Western fullback. The highlight of the
game occurred when Beyrouty scooped up the pigskin from among several Fairfax line-men, on a
kickoff, and ran some thirty yards.

Fullback Bud McCormac races 14 yards to the final Venetian touchdown after power-housing through
the center of the Roman line.
Sparked by the line smashes of Bud lVlcCormac and a brilliant offensive directed by Field Cen-
eral Eddie Saenz, the entire Venice varsity rose to new heights in blocking, tackling, and ball-pack-
ing to down the championship Los Angeles Romans l9 to i3 in the league finale. Fighting before
the largest crowd of the season-some l0,000 fans-the Condoliers completely overpowered the
Romans on Clark field.
At the end of the first half the scoreboard showed Venice, l9g Los Angeles, O, A Roman mis-
cue on their own l2 yard line provided the first scoring opportunity and on the next play McCor-
mac lateraled to Beyrouty from the two yard line for the first score of the game. The second Vene-
tian tally came on a 29 yard pass from Beyrouty to Brumfield. lVIcCormac crashed over center I4
yards for the third and final Gondolier touchdown, while Brumfield place-kicked for the extra dig-
it. Two costly Venetian bobbles put the Romans in scoring position and L.A. scored twice in the
second period. However, after this second Roman tally, the Venice attack got under way again
and only the sounding of the final gun saved L.A. from being scored upon again.
Spearhead of the Venice offensive was Fullback Bud lVlcCormac, who averaged 7.5 yards every
time he carried the ball. Standout on the Venice forward wall was Dave Ward. Others who played
outstanding ball on this grid titanic were Saenz, Bob and Mickey Doyle, Brumfield, Kirkman,
Thompson, Bushman, Beyrouty, Rosier, and Schade.

g M 4Q:VqV .. G M, .:.V ,.,. . . were awarded to linemen. Capt. Mickey Doyle, left
1" "t" I end and a real blocker, climaxed his prep career with
three letters. Also recognized as an outstanding
nllq 3 blocker and defensive end was Farron Brumfield, who
won his second letter.
T Though injuries kept Bob Doyle out of the first
two games, he returned to become one of the best tackles in the league, being
named on the first string All-Western team. lohnny Rosier, defense threat at cen-
ter and excellent pass-snagger, rated a berth as All-Western center. These two
boys received their second monograms. First year lettermen among the linemen
were Merle Huggins, who showed great potentialities in spite of a broken shoulder
which kept him out of the last two games, Earl lmboden, hefty tackle, Virgil Kirk-
man, steady and dependable left guard, Ko Takahashi, center and one of theplayers showing great-
est improvement, Harold Thompson, great defensive and offensive right guard, Otha Tolman, out-
standing on offense as left end, and Dave Ward, charging left tackle who forced the Romans back
for an average loss of seven yards through his position.
Six capable players made letters in the backfield. Fullback Bud "Rock-of-Gibraltar" lVlcCormac
earned his second letter through his great offensive performances. He was first string on the All-
Western squad and third string on the All-City team. jack Bushman, quarterback at the beginning
of the season and later end, showed great defensive ability and was named second string All-West-
ern quarterback. Superior blocking technique as a blocking back enabled Henry Schade to earn his
third varsity letter. A two-year letterman, halfback on the second string All-Western team, and
second in Westeirn League scoring was Fred Beyrouty, fast and elusive halfback. Spark plug of the
team, brilliant field general, and speedy and tricky quarterback were the attributes of Eddie Saenz.

Overcoming every obstacle, the Bee football squad rolled through its five league en-
counters to emerge as co-Western League champs, tied with Los Angeles High, at the
end of the season.
Only three returning lettermen-Ted Rawson, jamie Caylor, and Frank Lescoulie
-were among the sixty prospective grid candidates who answered Coach Bell's first
call to practice. However, the lightweight mentor turned out one of the best teams
ever to play under the Blue and White banner. The first team line-up consisted of
Koji Nakagi, Milton Maguire, ends: Vernon Evertson, Earl DeC-eneres, tackles: Chuck
Crowell, Bud Mahoney, guards: Ted Rawson, center, Eddie Morimoto, Frank Cosenza,
halfbacksg johnny Machado, quarterback, and Frank Lescoulie, fullback.
A fact admitted by all football authorities is that a team is only as strong as its re-
serves. This was especially true of this year's lightweight squad. Outstanding among
the powerful Venetian reserves were Bobby Firetag, james Caylor, Mike Ellis, Stubby
Eicholtz, Sakai Yamauchi, Carl Brush, Art Mullikin, Seymoure Cohen, Carl Helms,
Harold Cazin, and a host of others too numerous to mention.

Venice, 8: Dorsey, 6. A blocked kick late in the third quarter proved the margin of
victory for the Bee football team in its league opener as the Gondoliers downed the
Dons 8 to 6. In the second session, a forty-tive yard pass from Morimoto to Maguire
put the ball into scoring position, with Lescoulie plunging over from the one-yard line
tor six points. Mullikin blocked a Don punt behind the goal line to provide the win-
ning two points, after the visitors had tied the score at 6 all.
Venice, 73 Hamilton, 6. The C-ondo-babes pounded out a slim 7 to 6 victory over
the Yankees, Once again it was the passing combination of Morimoto to Nakagi that
scored for Venice, this time on a twenty-two yard aerial. Cosenza place-kicked for
the extra point. The visitors tallied in the third quarter when Moore returned a punt
42 yards to Venice's four-yard line, scoring on the next play. Morimoto, Machado,
Nakagi, and Cosenza played outstanding ball for Venice.
Venice, 14: University, 6. Coach Bell's brigade trampled the Warriors into the turf
on Clark Field, annexing a l4 to 6 victory. Early in the second period Cosenza scored
on a ten-yard jaunt, after a sixty-yard drive, and then place-kicked the extra point.
Second Venetian score came when Nakagi lateraled to Cosenza on the Warriors' ten-
yard line, with the "Babe" plunging into pay dirt and again converting.

spectacular L. A. game. However, things were finally settled in a gentleman-like manner.
Venice, 253 Fairfax, 6. The Condo-lighties unleashedaspectacular display of speed
and power in their fourth game as they literally crushed the Fairfax squad to the tune
of 25 to 6. Rawson started the Venetian juggernaut rolling when he intercepted a
Colonial aerial and raced 25 yards to score. Other tallies came as Yamauchi ran 52
yards to pay clay, Caylor passed to Nakagi in the end zone, and Caylor, in a beautiful
exhibition of broken field running, galloped 58 yards to another score. The visitors'
only touchdown was the result of a 34-yard pass. Standout for Venice was james
Caylor, who together with Yamauchi engineered most of Venice's scoring plays.
Venice, 7: Los Angeles, 7. The Venetians traveled to L.A. in the final game, there
to battle the Romans to a 7 to 7 deadlock and emerge as co-champions of the West-
ern League. The passing arm of Morimoto seemed to be the only consistent ground-
gainer for the Condoliers and the aerial-minded halfback more than proved his worth
when he fired one to Ellis in the end zone for six points. Cosenza place-kicked the ex-
tra point. The Romans came right back, taking the kick-off and marching sixty-two
yards to a score. The crucial point-after-touchdown place-kick was good-by inches.
Both scores came in the third period and from then on, it was a race against time
with neither squad having enough punch to score again.

cessful season, winning but one of their ten league contests. The lone league victory came when
Coach McFarland's boys dumped the University Warriors by a 28 to 22 score, for the first Vene-
tian win in two seasons. The first team line-up consisted of Bob Young and Howard Small, for-

VENICE 43 UNIVERSITY 5. A last-inning run proved disastrous for Venice in its first league tus-
sle on the victor's field. Rawson hit a homer while l-lorton doubled and came in on an error to ac-
count for two runs.
VENICE 4: HOLLYWOOD 3. Driving in Miyake on a triple, Rawson broke a twelfth inning dead-
lock to give the C-ondoliers a one-point lead. Rosier's brilliant three-hit, eighteen-strikeout pitch-
ing proved a deciding factor in the victory.
VENICE 5: DORSEY 6. Again a last-inning run nosed the Venetians out of a win after Dennis had
held the Dons scoreless for the first six innings.
VENICE 4: LOS ANGELES 3. A four-run rally in the third inning provided the Condoliers with
their second league conquest. Singles by Rosier, l-lorton, and Ward drove in the four runs. Ma-
chado and Miyake were the outstanding Venetian defense supports of the game.

Led by a handful of returning lettermen and a freshman sensation, Coach Charley Creen's blue-
and-white clad speedburners won dual meets from Dorsey and Hamilton and lost close decisions
to Fairfax, University, and the league champions, Los Angeles, finishing third in the league finals
behind the Romans and Warriors. The returning lettermen were jack Bushman, Fred Beyrouty,
Sammy Caylor, Harold Heinl, and Murray Smith, the freshman star was Roger Kirkpatrick.
Kirkpatrick and Heinl capably attended to the Sprints, Bushman and Huggins galloped the
quarter mile, while the longer track distances were handled by Bradeson, Kirkman, and Wolfe.
All timber topping was done by Caylor, Kirkpatrick, and Simons. Standouts in the field events
were broadjumpers Beyrouty and Smith, highjumpers lchien and Huggins, and pole vaulters Ya-
mauchi and Morimoto.
ln their first league meet, the Gondoliers were toppled, 67-37 by a championship-bound Roman

of the meet. lchien's win in the high jump and a relay victory completed the list of Venice firsts.
Fairfax, on the following Friday, edged the Venetians, 52 U3-5l ZX3 in the closest and most
thrilling meet of the season. ln this encounter Bushman started his long string of quarter-mile tri-
umphs and Kirkpatrick doubled in the century and lows.
Weakened by injuries, Venice fell at the hands of a strong Unihi outfit, 55-49, but came back to
whip Dorsey, 52-5l. A second by Kirkman in the mile and a relay victory provided the winning
margin. Again Kirkpatrick captured twin wins.
Hamilton, unable to cope with the steady flow of C-ondolier manpower, was defeated, '56-48.
Kirkman, Woilfe, and Tanaka swept the mile and Bradeson walked off with 880 honors.
By taking five first places to lead the field in that respect, the Condoliers finished third in the
Weste'rn loop finals. Venice's 8-man mile relay team consisting of Kirkpatrick, Huggins, Caylor,

Although they failed to win a single dual meet
and finished fifth in Western League finals, the
Gonclolier Bee spikesters proved a continuous
threat on the cinderpath throughout l94O. Five
men were outstanding in the Blue and White
machine captained by Ted "Bullet" Duncan,
This quintet of stars included Mike Ellis, ace
vaulterg Frankie Cosenza, sprinter and broad
jumper, Bobby Firetag, hurdlerg Frank Lescoulie,
shot putterg and Duncan, diminutive master of
the sprints. .
Lightweight school records were felled in three
events. Duncan bettered century and furlong
marks by winning in lO.2s and 23-ls, and Ellis
soared to a height of l2 ft. V2 in.
Yumori topped all point scorers as the Cee
track squad emerged victorious in two of five
league encounters and placed fourth in the finals
one point behind Fairfax. Almeida was captain
of the midgets as well as a 660 man. Nixon rat-
ed the distinction of being listed among the best
of league shot putters.
Venice was well fortified with pole vaulters,
having three who could hold their own in almost
any company. Pena, Yamamoto, and Okomoto
rounded out this trio. Yamamoto cracked the
midget pole vault record with a leap of ll ft. 3

The Girls' Athletic Association is the pride of the girls' physical education
department. Because of rigid requirements for entrance into the C-.A.A., this
admirable group of girls excels in sportsmanship and athletics.
During the year the C-.A.A. members travelled to playdays at Dorsey and
Banning high schools. They were hostesses to Manual Arts, Gardena, and
Washingtoin girls at a playday in October, and entertained the Franklin, Uni-
versity, and Fremont C.A.A.'s in May.
Terminating the first semester was the Circus banquet on january 23,
which every member attended. The second gala affair was held in june, and
brought the year to a joyous climax.

because of the striking similarity between
the foregoing stanza of "America the

KATE SMITH'S CREED
AS AN AMERICAN
. . I never cease thanking God that I
was born and have the privilege of living in
the finest country in the world-where we
enjoy freedom from tyranny, freedom of
thought, and freedom to follow whatever
form of religion means most to us .... "
K'Briefly, my creed is this:-I am proud to
be an American . . . I believe in the Constif
tution of the United States . . . I believe in
our Democratic form of Government . . .
And finally,-I believe that all those who
think there is any form of government any'
where else in the world which is better than
ours should go - or be sent - as quickly as
possible to that country to live for the rest of
their lives under the form of government
which they profess to prefer."

One of the highest and most sought-after honors that can come to a graduating senior is mem-
bership in the Ephebian society, an honor organization in the Los Angeles city school system which
signifies that the student has been outstanding in scholarship, leadership, sportsmanship, and serv-
ice to the school. One Ephebian is selected by vote of the faculty and senior class from each forty
students in the graduating class. Another honor a senior Ar can achieve is to earn a Roman Lamp,
signifying life membership in the California Scholarship Federation. The coveted Roman Lamp is
given after a student has been in the Delphian Society four terms, one of which must be in his
