The bugle blows, the curtains part, the audience thrills with suspense and ex-
, citement. Then with bold letters, a flash of light, a swell of the orchestra, and they
appear, "Preps On Parade." The march of students through the ages! From the
days of papyrus and wax tablets to the present typewriter and on into the future
they go, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. The little red schoolhouse.
the golden rule, the three r's-all pass in a desire for better educational facilities.
And now we see the streamlined school of today, more understanding teachers, more
effective material, the beautiful grounds, and we cannot help but wonder what the
future holds in store for "Preps On Parade."

0 His mother's pride and joy . . . the school marm's
nightmare . . . a regular guy with the communihfs
younger set was Timothy Cyrus Clump, considered
by many the typical boy of Windy Hills, up-and-
coming little village in central California in the
year l90l . . . Tim attended the little red school-
house in the village. With his dark hair, mischiev-
ous brown eyes, and face slightly freckled by 'ole
man sun,' Tim made a striking picture as he sat at
his desk surrounded by the daintiest of Windy
Hills' little maidens . . . Sherry Lee, the village
belle, had the misfortune to sit in front of him.
Many a time she would scurry home with her long
blond curls dripping with ink and her sparkling
blue eyes filled with tears . . . But although he
pestered her to death, she always chose Tim as her
escort to the church socials and community doings.
0 Tim was an imaginative lad, often given to
wondering about the future and what it held in
store for him . . . Today, in the future which even
his wildest dreams did not envision, he returns,
still an old-fashioned school boy, to wander about
the grounds of a modern campus and muse about

Ted Chairles Langpaap
Teacher of Commercial Subjects
December 5, 1940
When I first saw the three well-placed buildings, the innum-
erable shops and bungalows that make up the Venice High
School, I could hardly believe my eyes. . . . The school I had
attended many years ago had one room filled with giggling, pig-
tailed girls and snickering boys, and ruled by one teacher who
maintained order with well-worn ruler and hickory. This
strange new school with its offices and library,class-rooms and
laboratories, shops, cafeteria, athletic field, and auditorium
seemed immense in comparison . . . Often during my first days
here I lost my way in the wide corridors bustling one moment
with wild activity, the next minute completely deserted. The
ruler and hickory were gone, instead the erring pupil received
a blue court-summons and appeared before student judge and
jury to plead his case. It took a little
time to grow used to these changes fI'Il
confess that I wasn't in favor of them
at firstl, but soon I was my old self
again. The boys and girls have certainly
been friendly and l've met ONE girl-
but never mind!
These Venetians mix in everything, A
from football to Latin, and they've kept
me busy every second, but every second
has been fun! I hope you will enjoy it, X
too, as I take you with me to see the
I94I "Preps On Parade."

The ebb and flow of American life today is governed by the theme, "National Defense." Under present world
conditions it is right and proper that national defense be the focal point toward which all our thinking and activi-
ties tend. Our conviction that National Defense is of utmost importance is most praiseworthy and must never be
disregarded for a moment, but to make national defense meaningful and effective we must see and think clearly.
. . . We must be able to distinguish definitely between those things-those activities-that make for national de-
fense and those that have no partfcular bearing on the subject. National Defense is real, it is genuine. lt calls for
our full strength and support, physically, mentally, materially, spiritually ..,. However, remember the term is
popular today and popular ideas or movements are apt to be made use of by propagandists for selfish purposes.
Already too many self-centered interests are riding on the national defense band wagon, Even though almost any-
thing of any use to man or any idea or movement not adverse to the public welfare can be placed under the cate-
gory of national defense, too much is asked of our enthusiasm when we hear and read that we should buy paint,
paint of the X Brand rather than any other, for national defense, that national defense depends on the special
trade brand of liver pills we consumeg that we should purchase membership in a society administering to sick cats
for national defense.
' Generally National Defense divides itself into four great phases of our national life - man power, armament,
finance and morale. We are all aware of what these four terms mean and have a fairly good understanding of
what is being done to bring them to perfection nationally. What we do not always understand is how we, pupils
still in school, can contribute to their full development .,,. Surprising as it may seem there are many things that
pupils in high school may do that will make a definite contribution to the defense of our nation ....
0 Young Americans not yet in a position to bear arms, raise money, or construct armament, can do much by ren-
dering their wholehearted support and encouragement to those who are doing things in these fields. To do this,
pupils must first develop within themselves a firm belief in our democratic way of life. This belief must be so firm-
ly embedded in their characters that they are willing to make every sacrifice for its defense. To give real meaning
to this faith and belief in our nation young people must keep themselves physically fit. This means that they must
give attention to their personal health .... ln addition to this, the youth who honestly wishes to aid his country
will make every effort to improve his mind, since it is clear to all that the more intelligent a person be, the greater
the service he is capable of rendering. ln times such as these, America needs industrious, honest, dependable cit-
izens, all of which qualities pupils may acquire and develop through following the patterns laid down for them by
parents, teachers, and other interested friends and associates.
0 Many of the Senior A's who are leaving us at this time will find themselves involved in one or more of the de-
fense phases mentioned earlier. Some will go directly into the armed forces, others will find occupations in the
defense industries, others will go into banks or similar organizations having to do with finance .... To us who re-
main in school our task is clear. We must do all in our power to assist those who are building the means for na-
tional defense-man power, armament, finances. This we can do by meeting our daily tasks and assignments fully
and completely, day by day, week by week RAYMOND E. POLLlCl-l

Your theme, "Preps On Parade," means that l am talking about you, each one of
you who are passing through our halls every day. l know you by the things you are
doing. Have you stopped to think of just what impressions you are making every
day, yes every hour and every minute you are in these buildings? In the class room,
in the social hour, in the hall-are you reflecting your very best self at all times?
Venice High School can only hold high her head as she marches in the parade of
life so long as you as individuals are doing your best at all times. In reading "I
Dare You" by Danforth recently I came upon this quotation: "My own self, at my
very best, all of the time." I leave it with you as a motto. My faith is in you.
Sincerely your friend,
IVlAlVllE L. SALLEE
The Gondolier Staff is to be congratulated on its choice of theme for this year. We
all know we are on parade, we know we are always on parade, but the idea has
been with us so long that there is a danger of our giving it insufficient attention.
We need to be checked up now and then and reminded that the Parade is on.
Whether we like it or not we are on display. Everyone in our world is watching us,
ready to applaud or condemn. lt is so easy to forget about our appearance for a mo-
mentg to be careless about some little action, to get out of step. As individuals we
are always seen by someone, as a school there is never a moment when we are not
being judged. Thanks, members of the Condolier Staff, for once more reminding us
that we are on parade.

0 YESTERDAY NOON, as I was saun-
tering across the campus munching a
banana, a tall gray-haired gent came
around a corner. I-le gave me a stern
glance, then scribbled something in a
notebook. Next day I got one of those
blue slips ordering me to Student
Court . . . I was there bright and early,
trembling in my boots, not knowing
what to expect. The room was very
quiet as I entered. From the judges'
bench seven faces peered down at me.
Then the Chief justice spoke:
"Timmy Clump, you stand accused
of eating in the wrong zone. Haven't
you seen the signs posted on the cam-
pus telling where to eat?"
"No," I said. "But I'll look for them
"Very well," continued the justice.
"Since this is your first offense, we'lI
be lenient. One demerit this time.

' BOLDLY I walked into the auditorium. Boy, an assembly! I had
just found a seat when suddenly I noticed something strange. Then
l realized it was the complete absence of boys. It seems I had got
into a "girls only" assembly, sponsored by the Girls' League. I stayed,
feeling awfully guilty but mighty curious, and nobody even noticed
me crouched down in my chair in the back of the aud. Paula Forbes,
serving her second term as president, called the group to order. On
the stage sat the officers and the sponsors, Mrs. Mamie Sallee and
Miss Gladys I-lathaway.
"The purpose of the Girls' League," announced Paula, "is to stand
for ideals of true womanhoodg to further a spirit of good fellowship
and democracy, to establish high ideals of service and good-citizen-
ship, and to encourage such activities as will promote the interest of
the girls and benefit school and community. Our motto is Friendship
0 I PRIGKED UP my ears as I heard various committees give reports
on the big convention which was held right here at our school Satur-
day, May 3, and which was attended by girls from schools all over
the Southland. They told how lunches, packed as May baskets, were
eaten on the front lawn, picnic style. Boy, that must have been funl
'LTI-lE GIRLS' LEAGUE represents IZZ schools and 67,943 girls,"
l heard Miss I-lathaway announce. "Acting for each individual girl
are the homeroom delegates, who form the Legislative Council, and
the Executive Council."
lust then the bell rang and I sneaked out of the auditorium feeling
I had learned a great deal about this important girls' group. No won-

0 l HAVE jUST come from a meeting of the Boys' Union where We
have been discussing problems that concern boys or especially interest
them. l learned that the purpose of the Union is to assemble Venetian
boys so that they may make constructive criticism about the school,
and have pictures and programs of educational value. This is mighty
different from the little red school house l attended in Windy l-lills,
where Professor Snoodlepuss laid down the law with a hickory stick
and never gave us fellows a chance to do anything on our own.
Mr. David Schlosser, the sponsor, believes that through the Boys'
Union a better school spirit can be instilled-and l'm sure he's right.
This boys' group is a new experiment at Venice, having been organ-
ized during the fall semester with Milton Maguire at the head. Once
plans are completed, playdays, assemblies, and picture shows will be
forthcoming. lt sounds all right to mel
' ASSEMBLIES will be of the type given March ZO when a picture
showing the designing and construction of the D.B.-7 was shown by
Robert Cilasgow of Douglas Aircraft Company, with C-len C. Burbank
acting as narrator. There will also be a different type of assembly in
which any boy may take part in good old-fashioned horse play. Of
course all these programs will be just for boys.
Next year's president and secretary will be elected from among the
boys present at an assembly. The Executive Council is composed of
leaders of various boys' organizations, the senior class president, and
Student Body president. A great future is predicted for this impor-
tant boys' organization by Principal Raymond Pollich and Mr. Schlos-
0 OFFICERS of the Union the first term were Milton Maguire, presi-
dent, and Riyoso Yamamoto, secretary. Riyoso is holding the secre-
tary's job again with Robert Kaub president. l learned that the fol-
lowing boys served on the Council one or both semesters: Dave Ward,
Morgan Warner, Earl james, john Rosier, Steve jamison, johnny
Machado, jack Corcoran, jack Adams, Fred Beyrouty, jim Akoury,
Cecil Dingler, Keith Conley, Phil and Mark Kovinick.

MORGAN WARN ER
0 l'After entering Venice High School in February, l935, we knew our class was destined to become one
of the most outstanding ever to enter these portalsf' boasted Morgan Warner, prexy of the mighty winter
class of '4l. I had asked Morgan to tell me something about the history of that peppy collection of red-
sweatered senior A's who were making school history. According to Prexy Morgan, this class zoomed right
through the first two years and soon were A9's. They elected Beverly Cray to the office of junior student
body president, with james Caylor vice-president and LaVerne Higham treasurer. Their A9 graduation and
-I-. M party went off with great gusto.
Im eats ' Speeding right ahead, the class became twelfth graders. ln their final semester
w ,M they chose Morgan Warner, Don Wilde, and David Ward to see that their class
A had all possible good times coming to them. Morgan tells me this last semester has
been passing all too quickly with a maze of events . . . Senior Sweater Day, followed by the "big game" with
Samohi that will go down in the annals of Venice . . . then john Rosier being selected on the All-Southern
California football team.
0.The "Typical American" contest came and went, with Audrey
Corrigan and Milton Maguire from the "Best in the West" AlZ
class chosen as the regular American high school girl and boy. Then
came the Community Chest campaign and the surprise to senior
A Oarsman Editor Alice Pickens when her Community Chest "cov-
erage" caused the paper to win first place. "Foot Loose Cast
Chosen, Plans Under Way" was the headline appearing in the . '
November ZO Oarsman. The play was presented january lO, a rip-
roaring success. Elsie Kovinick, Milton Maguire, and Steve jamison
were elected Ephebians. And now Morgan is planning the Senior
Prom and Banquet.
0 Then on january Bl comes commencement-"a beautifully sad
affair," as one senior A expressed it, when lO6 upperclassmen, clad
in blue and white caps and gowns, will receive diplomas. This final
step over, the Winter class of '4l, "Best in the West," will enter
a world of strange and new ideas to begin anew as they did in '35
when they first entered the portals of Venice High School . . . And
so l say, good luck, class of W'4l.

0 "Nice class you have here!" I ventured timidly to the rather large young man who was presiding over
the meeting. He ignored me. "Uh--er--n-n-nice class you have here! Sir!!" He ignored me. "Hey, bud,
it's a pretty good class you've got here!" I shouted. He turned to me with an "I should say it is! The Toast
of the Coast!" And so I met jack Corcoran, genial president of the S'4l class.
0 As a result of this and of several other conversations with jack, Bob Lage, the vice-president, with Louise
Mclvlanis, the secretary, and Shiro Maruyama, treasurer, linterrupted several times by Yell Leaders jack
Williams and jimmy juvinalll, I learned the story of the group's many triumphs.
.I-im Mgets Entering Venice in September, l935, were l9O scrubs, eager but scared, who
S141 grew to the 222 members of the l939 A9 graduating class. Their student body
officers were C. Y. Dingler, president, Betty johnson, vice-president, Paula Forbes,
secretaryg and jack Williams, treasurer . . . September I6, l94O, was a great clay for my friends when they
met as one unit under the direction of Mr. Irving Fordham and Mrs. Effie lvlorrison, and under the leadership
of President Earl james, sporting the high-falootin' name of Senior
Bee's . . . Time flew and now they were on the last lap of their
journey . . . after five and a half years of being the underdog,
THEY were the mighty Senior Ayes!
0 Beige skirts and blouses, beige shirts and trousers were seen
sprinkled here and there on the campus February 20, l94l, The
reason? lt was Senior Sweater Day! After a novel banquet in the
cafeteria, the Toast of the Coast received its colors. From that
day forward the striking blue sweaters trimmed with beige buttons
and emblems ldesigned by George Haddad! were a daily sight at
school . . . S'4l went on to prove its loyalty as a class and made
history by having IOO per cent in C-ondolier subscriptions. And
now our heroes and heroines are planning bigger and better things
in the outside world after their graduation on june 26. C-ood luck!

ANDERING around the campus one May
afternoon, I heard rumors that the senior
A's of summer '4I were working on a sensa-
tional variety show titled "California, There I
Go!" I was bound l'd find out if there was
any truth in the rumor, so I sneaked into the
auditorium and cautiously seated myself in
the last row.
On the stage I saw a director rehearsing a
cast of seventy-five. I looked again and sure
enough it was Oarsman Editor Leonard Gottlieb
working on a script that, according to rumors,
he had written himself. From the directions
"Orson Welles" Gottlieb was bawling out l
discovered this was the first get-together re-
hearsal. lack Corcoran, C. Y. Dingler, and Bob
I-lepler were at a microphone rehearsing their
parts while others were watching the proceed-
ings or trying out for parts.
The show, as I got it, will be presented in
three scenes-a desert in a "wild and wooly"
atmosphere, a Hollywood studio scene, and a
California college scene. The play, which they
will present on june 6, will be fast moving
with a variety of talent including everything
from singing and dancing, to comedy and skat-
ing. Worlcing "behind the scenes" were Con-
ny jones and his orchestra, Byron Raddon, as-
sisted by lvlinard Kilbury on the publicity,
Miss Isabel Orton and her stage crew boys
working on the sets, and Margie Sinclair hand-
ling the tickets.

I could tell you more about this satire if my
enthusiasm hadn't got away with me. lust
after I burst out with a round of applause,
Director Gottlieb sent two of his "henchmen"
down the aisle and I was bounced out. But
l'll be back to see the finished performance?

Upon hearing shouts and gales of laughter coming
from the cafeteria, I opened the door, walked in, and
found myself confronted by members of the Latin
Club enjoying themselves
watching the initiation of new-
comers to the group. To my
surprise they grabbed ME and injected ME into the
crowd of initiates. Believe it or not but I found my-
self cast in the role of lulius Caesar in a short Latin
play. We all had to act out some character in Roman
history. lt was such fun that l've decided Latin can't
be such a dead language after all-at least not when
it's taught by Miss Martha Ward, who sponsors this

lapanese Club was in progress. They returned the
,,K0nni- greeting I had.been practicing
, W eorehand with such care,
chlwa' with a decidedly American
"I-lello, Tim, how's the boy?" I noticed that the club
was made up of both American and japanese students.
Its purpose, I learned, is to get students acquainted
with one another, so that they will ta-ke part in social
and educational activities. During the fall term the
club had a great time visiting the NBC Studio.

"Find a pin and pick it up, and all day long you'll
have good luck." This was the thought running
through my mind as I saw a tiny pin on the ground.
As I reached down for it, I
realized it was the pin of a
French Club member, picturing
the Eiffel Tower of Paris, one of the greatest land-
marks in the world. I returned it to Mrs. Ruth
Mclioane, club sponsor. She told me that her group
of French students study the culture and customs of
France and her possessions at their monthly meetings.

"lnchesl Inchesl Who's got the most inches?"
These were the words I heard as I entered Bungalow
7 during fourth period-for this was the Rower staff
and the battle for inches was
on. I started asking questions
of Miss Margaret McCarry, ad-
viser, and found out that the Rower is a junior high
monthly, which is a poc-ketbook edition of its "big
brother," the Oarsman. It is devoted to junior high
news exclusively. After the strings of column inches
were measured, the editor began discussing with the
enthusiastic staff plans for the special A9 graduating
issue of the Rower. judging from the animated con-
versation, it must be lots of fun to be a reporter

These were the sounds I heard as I entered the shop
room where Mr. Drew Arno's Radio Club was in ses-
sion. I don't understand how
these "hams" can tell what it's
all about. They must be a lot
smarter than I am! Many of these students have al-
ready obtained their amateur radio operator's license.
They are joe Strauss, W6RUFg Bill Olson, W6RXfVQg
Delmar Kilbury, W6SYU. To obtain it, they must
have a practical knowledge of radio theory and be able
to receive I3 words a minute. This is mighty different
from the school I went to back in l900. Nobody had
even heard of radio then.

As I wandered through the "l" building, I was
gently shoved to one side. Hastily I looked about and
there stood a little redhead with a band around his
arm who said, "Go through the
door on the right side." It was
then that I realized he was a
member of the Navigators. I was told that their pur-
pose is to promote safety on the campus, in the halls,
and in the classrooms. I also noticed that they help
the school in keeping the grounds clean. This active
club, which is one of the largest in the school, is spon-
sored by Mr. Karl Witty.

This afternoon I stopped in Mr. Wilson's bungalow
to attend a meeting of the junior Forestry Club. I
found myself in the midst of some twenty-five ener-
getic boys in grades seven
. through nine, who, under the
Seedllngs guidance of Mr. Wilson, were
making plans for the prevention of land erosion by re-
forestation. They believe, and rightly, that trees and
plants hold the soil and water. The leaves stop the
water and prevent the drops from digging deeply into
the soil, thereby loosening and carrying it away. To
aid in this program, the boys were enthusiastically
planning a field trip to a forest camp, where they
would plant young trees.

The roar of a motor, the rush of wind, and a model
airplane takes to the airl Through the eyes of the stu-
dents in the Aviation Club I see a giant transport take
off. Behind this plane are
hours of study and planning
lg over blue prints, of designing
and building this model plane. The club is currently
building a model powered by a gasoline motor. By
studying the effect of wind currents upon it, they will
find out how a real plane would act under similar cir-
cumstances. With the nation becoming aviation-con-
scious, Venice students are registering this same en-
thusiasm through their club activities. Mr. Ernest
Champion sponsors the group.

"Parting is such sweet sorrow!" So 'spake' the
senior dramatics class in practicing for the annual
Shakespearian contest to be held at Occidental Col-
lege late in April. This is only
one of the many activities in
WTO Be or
Not tv Ben which this class takes part. ln
the winter the drama students, under the direction of
their sponsor, Miss Isabel Orton, presented the play,
i'Footloose," which was given a tremendous ovation,
and in the summer they helped put on the successful
musical comedy, "When the Moon Risesfl Under Miss
Orton's professional direction, the class has entered
into more activities than it is possible to mention.

d Old Nick of Time,', was done
e so well that it was given before
Countrynlenf a Cirls' League assembly. These
young dramatists will be the senior high stars of to-
morrow. Among their other presentations, l learned
from Miss Isabell Orton, drama teacher, was a play,
"My Ladies' Lace," that was given for a junior Del-
phian meeting, and a Chinese play, "The Stolen
Prince," which they dramatized for several social liv-
Fri n s!Romans!

Forward, march! With a roll of the drums and a
call of the trumpets the Senior Band marched in the
P.-T.-A. Carnival in the Coliseum in November. Was
l proud! Ours was among the
. thirty-odd high school bands
Blue and Whllte chosen for the occasion. Re-
splendent in their brilliant blue and white uniforms
and under Mr. David Schlosser's expert direction, they
also played at many of the football games and in the
spring season entertained the student body at a band
concert. We have a band to be proud of-a stirring
compliment to the "Preps On Parade."

While strolling around the campus one afternoon
after school, l happened to walk by the girls' gym and
what should l hear but music. So what did l do but
enter to find the Harmonica
Band, a newly-formed club
sponsored by Miss Carolyn Mit-
chill, going in full swing. They were working hard to
get their numbers ready for the city-wide harmonica
program to be held at Belmont High School some time
in April, in which all harmonica bands in the city will
participate. l couldn't resist any longer but pulled out
of my pocket the mouth organ I always carry with me
and gave the band some competition they won't forget
for a while.

ture to "As the lVloon Rises." With a sweeping tide
of catchy melodies the musical

brilliant leadership of Maestro Reid Cox the orchestra

harmonious voices of Miss Myrtle Blewett's junior
Girls' Glee add that certain touch to many assemblies.
At Thanksgiving, Christmas,
and other holidays they bring
Serenade to us through song the spirit
of the season. Their participation in "The Nifty
Shoppe," the style show presented by the sewing class,
was one of the highlights ot their spring program.
Miss Blewett told me the music was to be furnished

Many of these talented Vene-

lovely voices in Miss Myrtle Blewett's Senior Girls'

Winning a tremendous ovation, the junior Boys'

"As the Moon Rises." Their rendition of "A Wander-

most popular number of the
entire show. Whenever these
future musical leaders of Venice are presented, they
meet with huge success and are known in the junior
high as one of the most popular entertaining groups.
If only I had been in a choir like this instead of having
to take singing lessons from my arithmetic teacher!

she told me about the doings of the Senior Home Eco-
nomics Club. Although she's not taking a home-
making course, she is much in-

Slx Lessons joined Mrs. Ella Crandall's club
when she discovered it is open to any senior high girl.
She tells me that at the monthly meetings talks are
given on such topics as dress, personality, the place of
the girl in the home. The girls make many field trips,
attend conventions of the national home economics
group, and right now are busy planning a tea at which
their mothers will be guests of honor.

My girl friend's sister, who is in the junior high, is
also interested in home-making and the developing
of personality. So of course she had to imitate big
sister and join the junior Home

Iiettle On! that at the last meeting she
took part in a round table discussion on such topics
as posture, make-up, and personality. They also have
the opportunity of listening to interesting talks by
guest speakers. The girls are taught the correct

Members discuss personality, dress, and other subjects
helpful to future secretaries and office workers. Mrs.
Winifred Wood was leading the group in some peppy
club songs when I entered. She told me later that the
club strives to attain certain standards in shorthand,
but also enjoys social good times at their informal

are going to make mighty fine private secretaries later
on, l'll wager.

REALLY didn't feel like stepping out that second Friday in
january, but Mathilda made me buy a ticket. Then my
fears began to vanish as the curtain of "Foot Loose" went up,
and I sat spell-bound as the winter senior play progressed.
The cast, which had been coached by Miss lsabel Orton, did
splendidly in their portrayal of how modern high school
youngsters act when left home alone with an old-maid sister
while their parents are enjoying their first vacation in years.
When Bill Olson, as kid brother Bob, started to iron his shirt
it reminded me of the first time l ironed mine, only l burned
a hole clear through mine. The family troubles were ironed
out when the parents finally returned home. From all indica-
tions "Foot Loose" made a terrific hit.

ing, society folk at play, romance in the moonlight, the or-
chestra playing soft lilting tunes, dancers pirouetting across
the stage, voices of the singers blending in harmonious tones.
I was trying to figure out whether on this 28th of March l
was in the Philharmonic, Earl Carroll's, or Europe, when l
realized l was at the operetta "As the Moon Rises." Imagine
my seeing a real opera, and what's more, enjoying itl The
music was modern, and even the gypsies were streamlined.
Through the splendid cooperation of Miss Isabel Orton and
untiring efforts of lVlr. Reid Cox the musical comedy swept
through to a brilliant conclusion. As the last curtain went
down the spontaneous applause of the audience proclaimed it
a great success.

the services these girls render are acting as hostesses
in the cafeteria and at most school affairs, giving
guidance and help to girls in and about the school, and
encouraging ladylike conduct in the halls.

my old classmates in Windy Hills, forty years ago.
They led the rooting section at all the games ancl also
introduced such yells as "Co-You-CondoIiers" and

THE Varsity headed by Coach Crayson Turney,
is made up of approximately fifty-two boys, all of
whom have earned a varsity letter. Among their many
activities, the Varsity "V" boys guard the fences and
gates during the games, officiate at track meets and
other athletic contests, and sponsor a clean-up cam-
paign on the campus. They have also done a great
deal toward making the proms and playdays a success.
One of the most important activities on their social
calendar is the lads' and dads' banquet at which men
well-known in the field of sports, like "Babe" Hor-
rell and Howard jones, are guest speakers. They also
stage a Varsity "V" banquet at the close of each
semester. The group meets for regular business ses-

and one in track. He was chosen on AlI-West-
ern, All-City, and All-Southern California foot-
ball teams and won All-Western and All-City
baseball recognition. Succeeding him was. Fred
Beyrouty, an eight-star letterman. Fred won three
letters in football, three in track, and two in
softball. He was named on the All-Western and
All-City football teams and in track, starred as

ESIDES accomplishing the feat of mathematically tying the
Romans for the Western League championship and whip-
ping Roosevelt in their Coliseum tussle, the Condoliers won
many individual honors. "Long john" Rosier won the most
laurels, being named on the All-Southern California, All-City,
and All-Western first teams and by being rated the city's
"most valuable player," the greatest honor any high school
player can achieve.
URINC the past two years Fred Beyrouty has been one of
the most dreaded ball carriers ever to run the length of a
gridiron-and with true reason, for he is fast, tricky, clever,
and strongly built. This season Fred was the third highest
scorer in the league and had the honor of being selected All-
City halfback . . . Coupled with being a great defensive end
was Merle l-luggins' offensive ability which was proved by his
record of being the highest scoring man at his position in the
city. These two traits earned him a right to be selected All-
OR four years Bob Doyle, at right tackle, has been a head-
ache to opposing players. Short and stocky, Doyle had a
charge that no tackle in the state could stand up against.
Although kept out of the first two games because of injuries,
Doyle came back in the last three and played so well that he
was given a berth on the second All-City team . . . Playing
right tackle with constant steadiness was Dave Ward, who
received a place on the second All-Western team. Ray Hef-
feran played his position of blocking half as well as any in
the city. l-le received a berth on the second All-Western
Squad Goes Through
THE Venice football squad of the l94O season
was one of the greatest ever seen in action, ac-
cording to the hundreds of football fans on the
campus. Here's the "low down" I learned about
them. With a roster of sixty-five ambitious lads,
including seven lettermen, Coach Grayson Turney
carefully selected and developed eleven players who
made up a gridiron machine so powerful and clever
that it lost but one game throughout the season-
and that by the slim margin of one point.
POSSESSINC a starting team composed of Merle
Huggins and Ernie Tolman at the ends, Dave
Ward and Bob Doyle at the tackles, Harley Brade-
son and Shiro Maruyama at the guard spots, "Long
john" Rosier at the pivot position, and lack Ken-
ning, Ray Hefferan, Fred Beyrouty, and Phil Kovin-
ick in the backfield, the Condoliers were ready for
all opposition. This team averaged l75 pounds per
man on the line and ISI pounds per man in the
backfield. By easily trampling a fair Santa Monica
team in a practice game to the tune of I9 to 6, the
Venice boys broke a fifteen year jinx. The league
games were all victories for them except the fray
with the Romans. When the final gun sounded,
Venice was on the short end of a I3 to I2 score,
her championship hopes gone. The football season
ended, however, in a blaze of glory when the Con-
doliers defeated Roosevelt, one of the toughest
teams in the city, 6-O, in the P.-T.A. carnival in the
Samohi Defeat Ends
I SAW a determined look on the face of every Con-
dolier as Venice lined up for the opening kickoff
in the Samohi game at Inglewood October 4. Rosier
booted the ball and the game was on-Venice ver-
sus its old rival, the Santa Monica Vikings. And
what a game it turned out to be for a football fan
like mel The break for the Condoliers came early.
Samohi fumbled and Rosier, who is always in the
right place at the right time, recovered for us. The
machine went to work at once. Kovinick blasted
the ball to the Samohi ten-yard stripe and Beyrouty
then skirted left end on a man-in-motion play for
the score. Doyle missed the conversion.
SAMOHI took the next kickoff but couldn't do a
thing. The Vikes kicked back to Venice and slap,
whiz, bang, the Condoliers were on the thirteen yard
stripe. Kovinick tore through center on the next
play. Somebody hit him, his knee snapped, and
down he went. Machado replaced him and did a
swell job. The Condoliers were grimmer than ever.
Kenning gave the ball to Beyrouty a short time lat-
er. Fred cocked back that talented left arm and let
fly a pass that connected to Huggins for a touch-
down. Doyle missed the conversion. It was in the
fourth quarter that I saw Dunn of Samohi throw a
long pass to Leasure for the Vikes' first, last, and
only touchdown. Soon after that the gun sounded
and I yelled myself silly because the fifteen-year
jinx of Samohi victories had been broken and the
score stood I9 to 6 in our favor,

FOR three quarters the Venice-Hamilton game, on
October IS, made a scared and worried fellow
out of me, Timothy Cyrus Clumpl The Yanks had
held the Condoliers scoreless up to this time and
had played them on even terms on the Yanks, home
field. Then in the final quarter, after a 54 yard
drive, came the play that ruined the Hamilton boys.
Venice, on the Hamilton ZO yard stripe, pulled a
man-in-motion play which the Yanks had been us-
ing without effect. Ernie Tolman, right end, car-
ried the ball around right end through a bewildered
Hamilton team for the first score. Rosier made the
THE Hamilton boys, who had seemed satisfied
with keeping the score at O to O, were now fran-
tic. Ayale, Hami back, started tossing passes and
again I started worrying. Then came the play that
stopped my grief for keeps. Ayale threw a pass.
Fred Beyrouty came from nowhere and intercepted
it. Dodging and weaving, Fred skirted some fifty
yards for a touchdown. Wow! what a run and what
blocking! Equaling Beyrouty's long run in color was
the brilliant punting duel between lack Kenning of
Venice and Bob Ayale of Hamilton. Both were punt-
ing that ball a mile down the field and a mile high.
Ayale also played a good running game and if it
hadn't been for a certain james juvinall, might have
tied the score. Twice he skirted end for what
looked like a sure score but both times juvinall came
from nowhere and slapped him into the dirt.
Fairfax Easy Victim
For Gondolier Squad
NEVER have l seen as many brilliant runs in any
game as took place in the Venice-Fairfax football
tussle that was played here November l and ended
in a 27-6 victory. The game was highlighted by
runs by Rosier and Beyrouty of 60 and 65 yards for
touchdowns. Venice scored just seven plays after
the opening kickoff. Walt Sohn's punt went out on
the Fairfax 26 yard line. The Ciondoliers then blast-
ed the ball to the seven, where john Rosier went
through the middle and over. He also converted
successfully. Again in the first quarter Venice went
for six points. Rosier intercepted a Colonial pass,
skirting 46 yards to the Fairfax Zi yard line before
being hit. Huggins then ran over for the digits on
the next play after nabbing a lateral from Beyrouty.
Nickell made the conversion good.
EARLY in the second half came a brilliant play as
Rosier took the ball from center and started plow-
ing through the line, keeping right on going for 60
yards and a touchdown. Inside of three minutes
Beyrouty intercepted a Colonial pass and proceeded
to weave and dodge his way 65 yards through the
entire Fairfax team. Rosier converted. Kennedy
made the Fairfax tally late in the third quarter. Bey-
routy was the outstanding player, averaging ten
yards a crack to make an amazing total of over IZS

game went Venice's championship hopes.
In the second quarter Kenning intercepted a Ro-

stop till hit on the LA. 37. A few plays later Rosier
whipped a pass into the arms of I3eyrouty, who
skirted over for the score. Rosier missed the con-
version and what an important point it turned out
to bel Then the Romans started passing that ball
and on three straight passes connected, the third
good for a touchdown. Nozawa converted.
IN the second half the men from Rome made their
second touchdown when Hoisch eluded four Gon-
doliers and went over standing up. The conversion
failed. The Venetians hit their stride again in the
final period. After blasting the ball from their own
IS yard stripe to the LA. 23, a Kenning-to-Hug-
gins-to-Beyrouty touchdown play ensued. The score
was I3 to I2 in favor of L.A. Boy, was I nervous!

Venice Rolls Up Big
Score in Dorsey Game
WITH woe and despair I watched a haphazard
C-ondolier eleven trail the Dorsey Dons at half time
I9 to 7 in a game played November I3 on the home
gridiron. But in the last half the Venetians found
themselves, tallying 27 points to pull the game
from under fire and bring the score to 34 to l9.
The C-ondoliers' touchdown in the first half came
when Rosier shot a long bullet pass to Huggins, who
outsprinted the Don safety man for the six points.
I WISH I could have heard Coach Turney's pep talk
during the half because when the Condoliers came
on the field I actually saw murder in the boys' eyes.
Early in the third quarter Kirby's short punt was
taken by Rosier, who made the score. The conver-
sion failed. Then came that never-to-be-forgotten
fourth quarter when the C-ondolier machine scored
three touchdowns. Beyrouty shot a pass to Tolman
early in the stanza for the score, Nickell convert-
ing. Shortly after, Nick intercepted a Kirby pass
and tallied, making the conversion again. With
juvinall and Kovinick on the offensive, Venice
brought the ball deep into Don territory, where
Nickell flipped a pass to Huggins for six points. The
gun sounded shortly afterwards. In my opinion
there was no outstanding Venice player because,

REPEATING their last year's performance, the Dee
hoopsters again took the Western League cham-
pionship. When the season ended, records showed
that the midgets had not lost a game and had scored
9l points to their opponents' 29. Their season,
however, was limited to four games since Hamilton
and Los Angeles were the only other Western
League schools with Class D basketball teams.
The first team was composed of Don Caulk and
Paul joseph at the forward positions, Robert Betts
at centerg Anthony Taravella and Bob Brown as
guards. These boys performed brilliantly, particu-
larly in the second game with the Los Angeles
Romans, in which the C-ondolier midgets allowed
their opponents to score only one point while they

themselves made twenty-four. The team was cap-

be back next season, they are favored to repeat
their enviable record. Alfred Quintero, in addition
to the first stringers, saw a great deal of action.

EIGHT returning varsity lettermen and a host of Bee letter earners
formed a nucleus that gave Venice promise of a great baseball nine.
Everyone, including me - optimistic Tim Clump - expected the
boys to have a bang-up year. To further the Gondoliers' champion-
ship hopes was their pitching quintet composed of Dan Hile, L'Big
jack" Kenning, john Machado, Gene Dennis, and Lee Rosier. These
boys had plenty of stuff and were top-notch twirlers, and all, ex-
cept Dennis, could play a classy game in the outfield.
ln George Miyake, who was elected captain, the Venetians had
a brilliant leader, deadly hitter, and outstanding second baseman.
When the chips were down, Miyake would always come through.
The other members of the starting lineup were also experienced
men and good players. They included Earl james, catcher, Dan
Hile, pitcher, Phil Kovinick, first base, jim Nickell, shortstop,
Ray Horton, third base, john Machado, jack Kenning, and Lee
SHOWING championship caliber, the Venice Gondoliers won
almost all of their practice games, in fine fashion. Then came the
Dorsey tournament and a jinx hit the Venice boys. They lost to
Fremont and Huntington Park and were thus eliminated from the
The league season opened in the same fashion as did the prac-
tice one, Riis, then the mighty three-Fremont, jefferson, and
Dorsey-fell in succession before the superb pitching and defen-
sive work of the Gondolier nine. But Venice then took one of the
worst nose dives l have ever witnessed. Out of the last seven
games, the Gondoliers were able to win but twol Huntington Park
and Los Angeles were the luckless foes.

STARTING the league season with a bang, the Gon-
doliers with "Lefty" Hile on the mound, routed the
RIIS VIKES to the tune of I5-3. The Venice boys
made nineteen hits and outclassed the Vikings in
every way. To prove this wasn't a fluke, they next
took powerful FREMONT into camp 4-3 and this
time the southpaw slants of "Big jack" were too
much for the Pathfinders. IEFFERSON and DOR-
SEY then fell before the Gondolier nine by the
scores of 3-2 and 4-I respectively. Machado pitched
the jefferson game, giving up only three hits, and
Hile pitched a one-hitter against the Dons.
Al Yaylian, Fairfax twirler, proved too much for
the Turney boys as the GOLONIALS handed Venice
its first league setback by the score of 5-I. UNI-
VERSITY, the next foe, followed in the Golonials'
footsteps and also whipped them. The score of this
game was 4-2, and I must admit that Duncan,
Unihi hurler, looked awfully good. Dennis started
for Venice and was relieved by Hile.

GETTING back on the winning trail, Venice took
LOS ANGELES into camp 4-2. Machado won his
second game in brilliant fashion. The next two en-
counters were against the weakest teams in the
league, but the Gondoliers looked about like the
grammar school team I played on in Windy Hills
back in IQO3. They lost to HAMILTON 5-4 and
to HOLLYWOOD 3-I.
Although out of the championship race, Coach
Turney's nine showed they could play good baseball
when they wanted to, by whipping the HUNTING-
TON PARK SPARTANS 5-2. Dan Hile was the
starting pitcher and gave up only two hits. After
that, the Venice team went back into a slump and
was beaten badly in the last game against BELL by
the score of 6-I. In final league standings they tied
for fourth place.

THE other day, after talking to some of my pals, l
roamed out to talk to the student coaches, Mark
Kovinick and jimmy juvinall, on the outcome of
the tenth grade baseball team. I was told that the
team appeared to be good, but lacked experience,
with Bob l-letman, ace twirler, the only returning
letterman. jim and Mark invited me out as their
special guest to watch the rest of their games. At
the end of the season our boys had chalked up one
victory against four defeats and l7 runs against 43
for the other teams.
Beginning the season March l3 against Fremont,
the boys were caught in the midst of a Pathfinder
bat barrage. ln spite of a l3-3 trouncing, Marquez,
l-letman, Logan, and Okamoto played heads-up ball.
We hit the win column in the next game against
Fairfax. Led by the big guns of Logan and Okamoto
CNE of the newest organiza-
tions at Venice is the two-year-
old Managers' Club sponsored .
by Coach john Bell, its main
function being the training of
boys to become managers of
our school sports. Their chief
activities include watering and
taking care of the track, acting
as bat boys at baseball games,
as water boys at football games
and aides at track meets. Filling
the offices are Ben Mahoney as
president, jim Akoury, vice-
presidentg jim Bussey, secre-
taryg and Wilbur D'Arcy, treas-
and the steady chucking of johnny Marquez, an
easy l4-7 victory was stowed away.
WITH an even split in two previous battles, I
went with them to Dorsey where the Dons white-
washed the C-ondoliers 6-O. Lack of experience
seemed the only barrier to victory when our nine
received another goose egg while the veteran L.A.
Romans were sending the tally sheet to lO. Clos-
ing a disastrous campaign with Banning, the stu-
dent-coached tenth grade outfit lost the final game

IN all my wandering about on Clark Field and in
the boys' gym, I found that practically every sport
had numerous returning lettermen. The only ex-
ception to this was the track squad, which, accord-
ing to Coach Charles Green, had just four returning
Iettermen. Two of these-Fred Beyrouty and Har-
old Heinl-are two-year monogramers while the
other two-Merle Huggins and Roger Kirkpatrick
-have earned just one. Fred really gave the other
boys plenty of competition while "Rajah" was so
sensational in the low hurdles that he threw a scare
into all his opponents. Other boys who have helped
our school consistently throughout the season are
Mike Ellis, Syd Fernald, Robert Pena, jim Pfeiffer,
jack Simonson, Luther True, Chet Weaver, Henry
Wolfe, Riyoso Yamamoto, and Osamu Yumori,
The Condoliers met with defeat in allof their dual
meets. ln the first league fray April I8 l went with
the team to Fairfax where they were defeated by a
strong Colonial squad 57Vz to 4l V2. Kirkpatrick
was the star of the meet, tying the school record of
IO seconds flat in the century and taking the low
hurdles in I9.9 to break his old record of 20.3.
Close behind him in number of points scored was
Captain Harold Heinl, who took a first in the 220
and second in the century. Other point earners were
Ellis, Yamamoto, Beyrouty, Huggins, Pena, C-olden,
Simonson, Pfeiffer, True, and Weaver, with the
first three taking firsts in their events. Our relay
team lost because of a bad pass.
BECAUSE of this first defeat, the University War-
riors, who had downed Hamilton the week before,
were favored over our boys April 25 and easily
trounced the Venetians OSIV4 to 383A1. Point earn-
ers again were the "Rajah," who took a first in the
ISO low hurdles and a second in the centuryg Bey-

Yamamoto, and Nickell. This time the relay won
in fine style, easily outdistancing the Warriors by
about lOO yards.
From my position in the grandstand beside the
rest of you loyal Venetians, I thought the Venice
boys looked mighty good even though they did lose
to Dorsey 56 to 48 May 2. As usual Kirkpatrick
was high point man, winning his lOO yard dash and
180 low hurdles in lO.3 and 2l.5 respectively.
Heinl took first in the 220 and second in the lOO.
The only other first place was in the pole vault,
where Pena and Ellis tied. Again the other point
earners were Huggins, Weaver, True, Wolfe, and
Beyrouty. Not to be outdone, the relay won a nip
and tuck race.
CN lvlay 9 I went home downcast because we lost
our fourth meet, this time to Hamilton 58 to 46.
l feel that one of the main reasons for this was the
absence of Captain Heinl, who was unable to run
because of an injured leg. For the fourth time Kirk-
patrick was high point man with his two firsts.
Closing this meet, our eight-man relay finished the
mile just a foot or two behind Hamilton. Finally
the disastrous dual meet season ended May i6
when the C-ondoliers bowed to the Los Angeles boys
74 to 30.
At a meeting attended by Coach C-reen, several
outstanding boys were chosen from high schools
and colleges to run in the Coliseum City Relays on
May 24. Venice had five boys selected-Fred Bey-
routy, Harold Heinl, Merle Huggins, Roger Kirkpat-
rick, and Luther True.

feats, coming out on the short end of the score in
each of their dual meets. ln the first league meet
with Fairfax, the Condoliers were defeated 69 2X5
to 29 V2. Wayman Darby was high point man with
two firsts. On April 26 l watched the Unihi squad
conquer them 57 2X3 to 37 l!3. Then on May 2
Dorsey handed them a whale of a licking, 80-l5.
The fourth straight setback occurred May 9 when
Hamilton took a clean sweep of the meet 8l-l4.

Tl-IE Cee track team had a more successful season
than the varsity or Bee's in its dual meets. Al-
though the boys started the season poorly with a
62-22 defeat at the hands of Fairfax, they came
back April 25 to win 46-3l over University. On
lvlay 2 they were edged out by Dorsey 42V2 to
34V2. The youngsters evened up the score. how-
ever, on May 9 by easily overcoming a strong Ham-
ilton squad 4l to 3l. Closing the season by going
up against a strong Los Angeles squad, they won a
close meet May l6, 4l to 36.
Captain Okamoto garnered points in the 50 and
pole vault. Other consistent point-earners were
Wilson, 660, Wright, l00 and hurdles, Duff, l00

I HAPPENED in one day on the gym team as they
were getting into shape for the league finals early
in April. l was amazed at the ease with which our
boys went through their events. You should have
seen that Tetsuo Shioto go up the rope-it seemed
as if his strides were a yard long and he climbed
the twenty-five feet faster than it takes to tell it.
lncidentally, l have since learned that he later tied
the school record of 6.8 seconds in the All-City
When l saw such hard working boys doing every-
thing Coach Hughes suggested in order to improve
their form and skill in their particular events, l
wanted to know more about these 'Kmuscle meni'
and their accomplishments. To my surprise, l
learned that of the fifteen who have earned letters,
twelve will be here next year, which is far better
than this year's start of

IN my investigating l also learned that Tetsuo's
season total of 54V2 points was almost double that
of his nearest teammate. Second to him was Kjith-
Conley with 33 points and following close behind
him, Irving Rgen with 25. lack Parke was fourth
in points scored, with 23. Our team won only two
of its league meets during the season, but we did
win both practice encounters, with Van Nuys and
Santa Monica. Including these, we made a total of
441 V2 points to our opponents, 372V2.
ln the league finals we placed fifth with 6 points.
Point earners were Tetsuo Shiota, who took a third
in the rope climb, lack Parke, with a fourth on the
parallel bars, and Ray Doyle, fifth in tumbling. ln
the All-City semi-finals only two boys placed-
Tetsuo with a tie for second in his specialty, and

The boys were defeated twice, once by a strong
Fairfax team and then by the more powerful Ro-
mans. The coach had ten returning lettermen to
work with, these players proving an asset 'to the
team. ln the first singles jack Dunham did a fine

LED by Captain lack Adams and Kenny Phillips,
the varsity swimming team had quite a successful
season. Since this is my favorite sport, I didn't miss
seeing the four practice and three league meets. On
March 6 Coach Hughes' mermen defeated Santa
Monica 47 to 45 in a close meet. Two weeks later
they overcame Hamilton in their first league meet
AT the same time that l was follow-
ing the varsity swimming, I took no-
tice of the boys on the Bee team. With
seven returning lettermen, they had an
unbeaten record in the league meets,
in spite of the fact that they lost a
by an equally close score of 45 to 43. The tables
were turned in the next league contest, however,
when the Hollywood Redshirts walloped the boys
from the beach town 70-l l. Venice closed its sea-
son by defeating Marshall 42 V2-23 V2 on April 19.
ln the league finals the Condoliers took a poor
third with l6 points to L.A.'s 73 and Hollywood's
70. Those who placed were Phillips, fifth in back-
strokeg Cielberg, fifth in 50 yard free style, Adams,

DURING the fall semester the C.A.A. members
were led by those ever popular and ambitious yell
leaders, Audrey Corrigan and Beverly Gray. "Audy"
and "Bev", besides leading the cheering on various
occasions, provided Venetianette athletes with sev-

CNE of the outstanding features of the girls' phy-
sical education department is the Girls' Athletic
Association, more commonly known as the C.A.A.
This organization, sponsored by Miss Carolyn lvlit-
chill, is made up of girls from the tenth through
the twelfth grades who have successfully met cer-
tain requirements, including skill tests and a physi-
cal examination. Because ot the high standard set
for enrollment in the C.A.A., girls are expected to
and do excel in sportsmanship and athletics.
Because ot its large membership, the G.A.A. is
tournaments such as hockey, volleyball, baseball
and basketball, for the honor ot having their club's
name engraved as a winner on an athletic plaque.
ln addition to tournaments, girls in the C.A.A.
take part each year in playdays at other schools.
This semester the Venice girls made an excellent
showing at a playday at Torrance in March. As a
joyous climax at the end ot each term the G.A.A.
stages a banquet at which letters are presented and
the most outstanding girls in the graduating class
are named Top Notchers. During the tall term

THE C.A.A. Board is the executive council of the
association, which tormulates policies and decides
upon athletic and social activities. Miss Carolyn
Mitchill, C-.A.A. sponsor, also acts as adviser to the
Board. During the spring semester vivacious Betty

UNDER the sponsorship of Mrs. Mary Pierson, the
Lettergirls have become an important group within
the C-.A.A. ln order to receive a letter and become
eligible for membership in this organization, a girl
must have earned six participation credits - one
credit being given for each sport in which she takes
part provided she has attended the required num-
ber of practice periods. After the letter is won, a
star is given for each additional two credits.
"Sans Mens in Corpore Sano" KMA Sound Mind

their motto earnestly. They also work sincerely
and whole-heartedly not only for themselves but
for their fellow players as well, Their main social

To become a member of the C-AA, is the goal
of every athletic-minded girl in senior high. To ac-
complish this, each girl must pass athletic skill

sportsmanship. Girls admitted during the spring

NOV. 14 . . . When I was in the business office
the other day, I heard some boys say that the building
we were in used to be the old cafeteria. l-low differ-
ent this drab building is from the NEW CAFETERIA
with its Venetian blinds and spaciousness. Now we
don't have to wait half the lunch period to be served.
lt's nice, too, to have some of those good-looking
Venetian Ladies act as hostesses each day.

SEPT. 16 . . . Scaffolds, ladders, paint, bruSl'l25-
people! This was what I saw as I entered the librafY
the first time. I soon found out what it was all abouf.
ln the east end a MURAL, depicting the coming of
the early explorers to California and the West Coast,
is being started. Designed by Miss Helen Lundeberg
and Miss C-race Clements of the Southern California
Federal Art Project, it will include pictures from the
time of Magellan to the days of the Missions and will
be ready by the middle of February.
OCT. 4 . . . Am l excitedl Fourth down, six
yards to gol Venice has the ball on the enemy's 38
yard line. What to do? Shall l take a chance and try
a pass or shall l kick? lt seems as though l am the
quarterback as these thoughts run through my mind.
But then I realize that l am a mere spectator in the
grand stand at the VENICE-SAMOI-ll football game.
And Venice emerges the victor, breaking a fifteen-
year jinx by winning l9-6.
OCT. I1 . . . With five honor and service organ-
izations started last year, the only one lacking was a
service group for tenth and eleventh grade girls. This
new club was launched today, composed of twenty-
five charter members and sponsored by Miss Edith
Burns. Of course, my one and only is one of these
privileged girls. With Margaret Mellen as president,
Patty Allen as vice-president, and Maxine Balfour as
secretary, this newest service club, the CHATE-
LAINES, is sure to be a success.
NOV. 8 . . . A new form of ARMISTICE DAY
assembly was held today at lO:lO on the front lawn.
lt began with the flag salute, directed by the Knights
organization. The assembly continued with "Taps"
played on the bugle by Vern Arslan and joe Mustol.
Mr, Reid Cox next led the entire student body in the
singing of "Cod Bless America," and "l Am an
American." Steve lamison then spoke on observance
of Armistice Day. There will be no school Monday,
as Armistice Day is a national holiday.

as it paraded with some twenty-five other bands
across the field.
NOV. 29 . . . What a day this has beenl First we
treked to the Coliseum to play, then the SPINSTERS'
PROM was held tonight as a gay climax. The theme,
ofcourse, was Football. On the walls of the girls' gym,
where the fete was held, were all of Venice's grid
scores. The girls, for once, paid for everything and my
girl . . . er, we'Il leave her name out of this . . . proved
to be the belle of the ball . . . everyone present said

DEC. 20 . . . Like many other Venetians, I
brought quantities of canned goods, fruit, and nuts to
my homeroom teacher this week. They became part
of a Christmas basket prepared under the direction of
the Girls' League. Today in the foyer of the auditor-
ium I saw hundreds of these gayly decorated baskets,
crammed with foodstuffs, on display. Over the week-
end they will be distributed to needy families in the
community by the P.-T.A. That's what I call real
jAN. 'l6 . . . The annual LADS' AND DADS' BAN-
QUET proved to be highly entertaining and enlighten-
ing. Through Coach Turney and his Varsity "V" we
were fortunate in having Coach I-Ioward jones as guest
speaker. The after-dinner show consisted of a "hand
to hand" exhibition, Bob I-lepler's comic rendition of
the song, "Cecilia," and a trumpet duet by joe Mustol
and Vern Arslan. We also saw moving pictures of our
football team in action. john Rosier presided as mas-
ter of ceremonies.
jAN. A15 . . . WITH leading professional and
business leaders as counselors, the semi-annual
LIONS' GUIDANCE DAY proved of value to seniors in
helping them decide on their future work. After a
luncheon in the cafeteria, members of the Lions' Club
conducted interesting round table discussion. Charles
Gottlieb, journalist, and Waldo Edmunds, who spoke
on commercial art, were among the speakers.
MARCH 27 . . . I had been hearing so many in-
teresting talks on thrift in my social living class that
today I became a TI-IRIFT BANK depositor. Margie
Sinclair, cashier, told me that there are 236 others
who keep money in the Thrift Bank. She also said
that the group is now planning a special thrift pro-
gram to be given before the L.A. high school princi-
pals and superintendents under the direction of Mr.
immg if saga
IAN. 24 . . . I know l wasn't supposed to be
there, but I had heard so much about 'the Senior
PROM that I sneaked into the girls' gym to get my
first glimpse of a senior dance. I was surprised to see
all the fellows I knew who usually appear in dirty
cords, dressed up like campus sheiks. The girls looked
lovely in formals. Most attractive of all were the leis
everyone was wearing, to carry out the Hawaiian
IAN. 30 . . . I was one of the lucky students
who managed to secure a ticket to the W'4I CRAD-
UATION exercises. It was most impressive to see IO6
seniors, looking so dignified in their blue and white
caps and gowns, march to the strains of the Corona-
tion March to receive their diplomas from Mr. Ray-
mond Pollich. I-low different this commencement was
from the exercises in the little red school house in
Windy Hills that I used to attend.
FEB. I9 . . . I seem to have a habit of being
where l'm not supposed to be. This time I was, un-
seen by them, at the INSTALLATION of the Venetian
LADIES and had the privilege of seeing eight new girls
become full-fledged members of this twelfth grade
honor and service group. First Lady Mary Cirace Allen
led them in the oath, after which Barbara Ellenstein,
secretary, read the Constitution and Mrs. Mamie Sal-
Iee, sponsor, told them of their duties, and of the high
ideals of the organization.
MARCH I7 . . . Today the C-ONDOLIER DRIVE
started off with a bangl The dramatics class helped
out by putting on a skit in assembly. And who was
the hero of this playlet that showed the school "kids"
of forty years ago? None other than me, myself, and
I-Timothy Cyrus Clump. I have to admit, though,
that the girls' basketball team of forty years ago
almost stole the act. Yes, gym bloomers were mighty
generous in yardage in those days.
APRIL 'I . . . Slacksl Slacksl Slacksl That's all
I saw on April I. And that isn't an April Fool's Day
joke. I know it's unusual-it would NEVER have hap-
pened up in Windy Hills in the days when l went to
school there-but it see-mis that day has been set aside
as annual SLACK DAY by the Girls' League. This is
the one day during the whole year when Venice girls
may wear slacks and not violate school rules. The day
is sponsored by the Girls' League.
MAY 2 . . . "Who was first vice-president of
the U. S.?" . . . "Who said, 'Give me liberty or give
me death'?" Questions like these were asked by Mr.
Overin and Mr. Richards of twelve senior and of
twelve junior high students as part of a QUIZ GON-
TEST. Senior high winner was Fred Hook icenter of
second rowl and in junior high George Lyle lfirst in
second rowl. Harrison Betts was third in senior high,
while Tusa-ka Okumura and Shirley Williams tied for
second in junior high.
MAY 2 . . . Today I became Mr. Big lor was it
Mr. Little?l Business Man, when I attended the first
annual all-day "Youth Looks at Business" conference
at the Biltmore, together with some seventy-five other
commercial majors at Venice. Garth Peterson and
Leonard Gottlieb acted as business machine demon-
strators. Other Venetians served on the conferences
executive and publicity committees under the direc-
tion of Mrs. Winifred Wood and Miss Aure Tucker.
MAY 3 . . . Believe it or not but it gets lonesome
not seeing your best girl for days and days and days.
That's the way it was with me while my girl was
working all week getting things ready for the GIRLS'
LEAGUE convention. Two delegates and a faculty ad-
viser from over a hundred schools attended the Satur-
day convention held right here at Venice. The full
day's program included two assemblies, luncheon, and
a dance. Mrs. Sallee, Miss Hathaway, and Paula
Forbes, pfeky, had a great deal to do with its success.
APRIL 25 . . . I put on my old overalls and red
shirt, stopped by for my girl, and went to the HARD
TIMES PROM in the Venice gymnasium. Connie jones
and his orchestra supplied the music for the jolly
crowd that danced in this gala atmosphere. Of course,
the refreshment booth was the mecca for much of the
merrymaking. The event proved to be one of the high-
lights of the social year. I, for one, liked it better
than a dress-up affair.
WHEN I stepped into the garden of the agriculture
classes, I found a junior high group, under the super-
vision of Mr. William Wilson, transplanting snap-
Dragons Thatgragons from pots into the fields.
ome of the boys were preparing
Snap the soil with hand cultivators, oth-
ers were planting, and still others watering the plants
to prevent their wilting. This class teaches them to
use farm tools and take care of plants.

IT'S so famous I had to see it myself and so I went to
the Latin Museum in the building. I was really
astounded. Imagine seeing Creek pottery from the
fifth and sixth century B. CI And Ro-

of Old oldl These are only a few examples of
the many genuine articles represented, which Latin
classes, both at Venice and elsewhere, study and
"WHAT kind of work is done by the hundred stu-
dents on the N.Y.A.?" I asked Mrs. Winifred Wood,
faculty supervisor. She answered, "They work as
Youth, the clerical secretaries, in the
cafeteria, counselor s office,
NUti0n,S Backbone registration and first aid of-
fices, and as PPX board. They assist in the mainten-
ance of the grounds, spray pottery, load and unload
the kiln and fill many other jobs requiring skill."
I WAS feeling studious so I decided to read in the
library. I opened the door to find myself in the midst
of a gathering. Then I remembered it was the mural
dedication. This mural, which
In the Days of is a W,P.A. Southern Califor-
Montezuma nia Art Project, depicts major
episodes in the history and growth of the Southwest.
I especially like the scene showing the coming of Cor-
tez to the palace of the Aztec ruler, Montezuma.
"TESTING I, 2, 3, 4." As I came on to the athletic
field I heard these words coming from the public ad-
dress Ioud speakers that Bill Robinson, Andy Oden,
Testin Robert Pena, and joe Strauss were set-
g ting up for an out-door assembly. One
1, 2, 3, 4' of the duties of this crew is to set up
and operate the controls for the public address system
on the athletic field.

milling machine, and other power
tools. This two-year course prepares
them for jobs as machinists after grad-

Type feature, Mr. M. E. Riley pointed out

atmosphere resembling that of a regular shop. Using
standard drafting equipment, the boys were learning
to make dimensional drawings,

to serve, while others, in a different room, studied the
fundamentals of English, arithmetic, spelling, and typ-
ing. The boys, it seems, come on separate days, These

PEEKINC- through an open door fourth period I saw
a pretty girl and so l decided to investigate lwell, you
would have done the same thingl. Students sat all
around her, busily sketching.
Mr. Harry Winebrenner ex-
Ah, for An
Artist's Life! plained, "This is the life draw-
ing class in which each student takes his turn as a
model and all learn the importance of accuracy from
living mo-delsf, Everyone in the group was mighty
happy that day for they had just heard that Bob
Whelchel, life drawing student, had been awarded an
art scholarship to the California School of Fine Arts.
NEXT I dropped in to see Mrs. C-ladys Finley's pottery
class where students were working on all kinds of pro-
jects from bowls, mugs, tiles, placques, and figurines
, . to jewelry. After the hand work
Baklng a Wale is completed, the objects are
ln ll Klln dried, then fired at a temperature
of l8OO to ZOOO degrees in the large kiln. The wares
are called bisque. Then the glazing process takes
place and they are refired. The complete processes of
glazing, building, slip painting, and firing are done by
Tl-lE room seemed quiet with the exception of the
noise from the adding machine which was being oper-
ated by Virgie C-ritton, Beatrice Griffith, and Cale
Evers. ln an adjoining room was
T,-ul, ou,-S Mrs. Winifred Wood, whom l
questioned about commercial
courses offered. She explained that bookkeeping,
business law, salesmanship, shorthand, machine cal-
culation, typing, switch board operation, and office
practice are offered and that each fits into some sec-
tion of the commercial course.

I STEPPED into the nurse's bungalow to find myself
facing a husky senior A who ordered, "Bend your
right elbow." l've never been one to argue ll'm only
4 feet lll so l obeyed. Straight-
way my shoulder was snugly
Light bound and l was led to Miss Min-
nie Allen for inspection. l was in the First Aid class
where pupils learn to locate injuries, control bleed-
ing, and apply bandages. Students passing the course
receive certificates authorizing them to care for vic-
tims of accident or sudden illness.
A NOISY room with steel-beamed roof, and floor
dotted with bomber sections, machinery, and men,
was the scene of my afternoon's explorations. ln-
structor Donald Dobbins talked en-
thusiastically of the National De-
Democracy fense program. The class was in-
stalled at Venice in May, l94O, and already lO5 of its
members are at work in aircraft and allied industries.
Only adult machinists enroll, and after ZOO hours of
instruction, become trained riveters and sheet-metal

With more than 15,000 Willis graduates placed in employment . . . A capable staff of

allied business subjects taught . . . Housed in our own building, adequately and hand-
somely equipped . . . Over 90 per cent of the employers of office help in the Bay Cities
employing one or many Willis graduates . . . Twenty-five years of experience in train-
ing young men and women for employment in business . . . It would seem that Willis
College training can benefit young people seeking employment.
