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, 'Z STEPHEN EARLY Secretary to the Presid nt A MESSAGE PHUM THE WHITE HIJUSE , J K FRANKLIN IIEIANIJ HIJIISEVELT ,r ' R-x1 F. - - H'f"'i' sl "' l, "' Wpxij, 4, " 'iz Q . is Q g'Hr , 03 , 1. qv' K' . 4 fn, - .

FIJHEWUHD 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. RUSSELL BRINES. CUNTENTS..

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. 7QAf7:57Z.lZu.f4gZ-Ff4fnf-4.4 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 rich harvest. HAMLIN GARLAND. Principal Raymond E. Pollich PHESENTINE MH. PULLIIIH 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 desirable. 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, l6 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 functions. 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." 1 ...ii Y i Mrs, Mamie L. Sallee, Girls' Vice-Principal Ray B, Shaw, Boys' Vice-Principal IEE-PHI IIIPALS SALLEE A ll SHAW As Girls' Vice-Principal, Mrs. Mamie Sallee di- rects the girls' needs and interests. She has charge of all stude t ' n activities, such as assemblies, field trips, open house, Student Council, Girls' League, Venetian Ladies, calendar, and publica- tions. Le ca t e Beautiful will be a beautiful place in which to live just so long as Americans live beautifullyg but just as soon as we become sordid and cruel and selfish, we will d estroy all that beauty. The responsibil- ity is ours. t us remember that Ameri h MAMIE L. SALLEE. As Boys' Vice-Principal, Mr. Ray B.

One of t mY work has to do with the activities of the pupils. l am more and more convinced when I observe Venice High School boys and girls taking ad- vantage of the opportunities offered here that America will continue to be "America the Beau- tiful." he most interesting phases of RAY B. SHAW.. l 7 THE FACULTY 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. Appearing in the picture from left to right are Elmer Bull, vocational training co-ordinatorg Mrs. Vivian Dingle, health co-ordinatorg Raymond E. Pol- lich, principalg Mrs. Mamie Sallee, girls' vice-princi- palg Ray B. Shaw, boys' vice-principal, Courtney S. Overin, citizenship co-ordinatorg and Mrs. Gertrude lllingworth, professions and fundamentals co-ordi- nator. THE COUNSELOR 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 REGISTRAR 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 attendance office. THE LIBRARY 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- tion. ln the photograph, Mrs. Ruby Edenquist, librarian, is seated at the desk giving directions to Mrs. Virginia Stein, library clerk. THE HIE LTY ENGLISH 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. SOCIAL STUDIES 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 john Sholtz.

Mrs. Dorothy Pool took Dr. Van Zandt's place during the spring term. SCIENCE 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 joshua Hoover. THE F!-IIIULTY LANGUAGES 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. COMMERCIAL 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.

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. ,. i THE HIE LTY PHYSICAL EDUCATION 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. HOME ECONOMICS 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. MUSIC 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 Cox. ART 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. S. B.

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 Frances Wentz during the second.

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. c F-ff ADMIRAL BYRD just before taking off for the South Pole holding the flag and a stone fr-om Floyd Bennett's Grave which he later dropped at the pole. .f4c!miraf mcitarcl gy cl 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 icefboxu? CLASS OFFICERS RICHARD COSENZA BOB YOUNG President Vice-President SHIRLEY CHANDLER DINNY WATSON Secretary-Treasurer Yell Leader When they entered Venice High School in Winter '34, Little did they realize what the future held in store, Artists, athletes, scholars, Leaders there galore, A group of eager students, higher knowledge to explore. When they became ninth graders, they chose officers to serve- The junior Student Body, their order to preserve, Mary Wentz was prexy, Full of life and verve, Earl Smith and Sheila Davies, too, credit, do deserve. With junior high school finished, tenth graders they became. To study hard and graduate was now their highest aim, Studies were more difficult, But this they overcame With lots of concentration, the eleventh grade to gain. Mrs Elsie McLaughlin, Ernest Champion, W'4O class advisers 7 l Again officers were chosen when they were Senior Ayes. This time to serve their mighty class and help in many ways.

When the seniors held their banquet, everyone was there, Though so many friends were parting, it was a grand affairg They read the senior will And no one did they spare, Food and entertainment were both beyond compare. On the first of February, they bid their last adieu To dear old Venice High School and all the friends they Clad knew, in caps and gowns Of symbolic royal blueg Graduation night was here, and school careers were They They Some Some They through. are now facing life anew as back in '34, reach a big decision, their lives they have before, will continue schooling, to fame will soar, will all look back on Venice High with fondness evermore.

Their junior graduation was on the twenty-fourth of june And for each happy student 'twas an eventful after- noon, They had now completed Their junior high careers And were making ready for upper classmen years. After the tenth and eleventh grades-they soon were Senior Ayes And in their last semester they had many joyous days, When officers were chosen To lead this mighty mass, McCormac, Tryk, and Swingle were electcd by the class.

SS HF HH The bright maroon and white made a picture gay As the proud seniors paraded on their Sweater Day, They presented a class play Entitled "june lVlaCl', At the Cotton 'n Cord Prom, what a merry time they had. Commencement Day was drawing near, and seniors congregated At their formal banquet, where they participated In singing songs, wishing luck, And sadly reminiscing About the proms and football games and all that theyld be missing. june, the twenty-seventh, was the day of graduation That all had looked forward to with 'much anticipation, But when the time arrived To say their last "goodbye" They really hated to depart from dear old Venice High. Looking toward the future, all the boys and girls will find A world which they must enter with an open heart and mind, For although the memories And carefree past are stilled They will always think of school days as a dream that was fulfilled.

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. J.

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 l9. 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, Evelyn Goldberg, johnietta Polk, and Elaine Williams in the roles of witnesses for the prosecution. Bill johnson gave a clever interpretation of a hard-boiled gangster, and Neil Peterson re- ceived praise for his handling of the difficult role of Whitfield, father-in-law of Faulkner. "Not Guilty" was the verdict reached by a jury which had been selected from the audi- ence earlier in the evening. ...SPHI I3 SE IUH PL!-XY LEFT TO RIGHT: John Tami, Adeline Simmrin, Clara Schmidt, George Stern, Ned Dressler Betty Johnson Ray Furgeson, Peggy Watkins, Douglas Wilson, Joyce Bohn, Neil Peterson, Susnetta Boulware Gordon Weir ".IUNElVIA" ln place of a tense mystery-drama, the sec- ond semester senior dramatics class chose "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 creditable performance in a father role, with Peggy Watkins showing sincerity as the moth- er. D i CAST OF CHARACTERS ln Order Penny Wood . Chuch Harris Mrs. Wood .

Qrdking 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 General. . . . . . 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. . 13' ,L V , LEFT TO RIGHT: Coaches Charles N.

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. 92 IIAPTI-ll S UF SPUHT5 wanna- --.-Q-C ..,..,.....,.... 5 WfA, L ROW l: Steve Grace, varsity basketball, James Caylor, B football, Mickey Doyle, varsity football, Ar- cadio Almeida, C basketball and C Track, Dick Williams, D basketball, ROW 2: Vito Monteleone, var- sity track, Al Talamantes, varsity baseball, Warren Swingle, tumbling, Sammie Caylor, Jack Hughes, varsity swimming, Dean Carlson, B baseball.

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.

Guard Harold Thompson and blocking-back Henry Schade are seen in background. 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. VENICE, 63 HAMILTON, 7 Trailing at the end of the first half i9 to 7, at when the visiting Yankees eked out a surprise 7 to 6 win. For two quarters both teams played even ball with neither scoring. The deadlock was broken in the third quarter when Fred Beyrouty picked up a fumbled pass and ran twenty yards for the lone Venice touchdown. Four minutes later, mighty Chiniquy of Hamilton circled his own right end for the single Yan- kee tally. A well placed kick for the remaining digit proved to be the slim margin of defeat. Thomp- son, Brumfield, Mickey Doyle, Bushman, Schade, Rosier and lVlcCormac were the mainstays of the Venice eleven.

Venetians closing in for the "kill" are Brumfield fl5l, Kirkman 42Ol, Rosier l3Ol, and Beyrouty ll6l. The Condoliers broke into the win column when they climaxed a thrill-packed game by driving sixty-four yards in the final ninety seconds to the winning score. After Beyrouty swept end for a Venetian tally, the Warriors came back to lead 7 to 6 for almost three quarters. The Venetian juggernaut began rolling in the last of the fourth, when starting from their own thirty-six yard line they completed two passes to the Unihi thirteen yard marker. Saenz's scoring end run was nullified by a penalty. With seven seconds remaining, fullback Kovinick plunged over for the winning score, Brumfield converting. VENICE, 26: FAIRFAX, I9 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.

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.

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. Phil Kovinick, hard-plunging fullback and understudy to l'VlcCormac, was one of ! the Griffin trophy winners because of his citizenship record, scholastic, and ath- A letic ability. 1940 SEASUN 99 l l ld LIEHTWEIGHT FIJIJTBI-XLL QQPQWJAEJ FIRST ROW: Nakagi, Evertsen, Crowell, Gazin, Maguire, Mahoney, Capt.

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.

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.

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.

The Varsity baseball nine gave a good account of themselves this year by winning six of their twelve league games to finish in fourth place. Coach Grayson Turney's first string squad usually consisted of Captain Talamantes, catcherg Dennis or Rosier, pitcherg Kovinick, first baseg Miyake, second baseg Saenz, short-stopg Horton, third baseg Rawson, left fieldg Rosier or Machado, center- fieldg and Ward, right-field. Kenning and Cummings also saw much service as pitchers. johnny Rosier was awarded the berth of center-field on the All-Western League team. WESTERN LEAC-U E ENCOUNTERS 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.

Seeking revenge for the Unihi win at the first of the season, the Gon- doliers backed up pitcher Dennis to tip the Warriors by two runs. Rosier's double, with bases loaded, accounted for three of the tallies. VENICE Og HOLLYWOOD 9. The tables were turned as the Hollywood team once nosed out by Venice came back to line up nine runs and give away only three hits. VENICE 5: DORSEY 4. To ward off the past week's slaughter, a determined C-ondolier nine tri- umphed over the Dons as Rawson doubled in the ninth to let Miyake walk across the plate for the winning run. VENICE 33 FAIRFAX 7. The Colonials hit in five runs in the seventh inning to drub the Venetians 7 to 3. VENICE IZ: LOS ANGELES 8. ln a game cluttered with errors, stolen bases and base hits, Venice surged ahead in the last four innings to garner 9 more runs. Rosier chalked up two doubles with Rawson picking out a double and a single. VENICE 53 HAMILTON 4. To climax their seasbn, the C-ondoliers, paced by Kenning's pitching, knocked the Hamilton boys off their league throne and forced them to share it with Fairfax.

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 squad.

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 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.

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.

EPHEBIA- Jack Jamison Earl Smith Mary Wentz Betty Church Bob Conrad Ruby Donald Virginia Shaw 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 senior year.
