Tl-lE CONDOLIER theme chosen for the Class of Summer '42 is most timely and signifi- cant. "Keep 'em flying" is a motto highly appropriate to a class that is going forth into the war life of a nation that at last fully realizes the importance of the air in modern warfare. Though repercussions of the age-long debate as to the respective superiority of battleships, tanks, infantry, highly fortified bastions, on the one hand as opposed to the superiority of the airplane on the other are still audible, it is now generally conceded that the airplane is the most potent single factor in present-day warfare, This fact, of course, in no way de- tracts from the importance of any other branch of the armed services. lt merely means that it is now clearly evident that a nation without adequate air fighting facilities is at a great disadvantage in opposing a country possessing a strong air force, l-lowever, to attain and maintain superiority of the air means that a nation must first construct the greatest number of the best planes and, second, that it keep these planes in action by efficient and constant construction of new ones. lt is reported that to keep a single fighting plane in the air re- quires the services of twenty on the ground. This, then, is what the Class of Summer '42 means when it dedicates itself to "Keep 'em Flying." To "KEEP 'EM FLYING" many of you will go directly into aviation, others into ground service work, others into the production field, and still others of you will continue your for- mal education in order to better qualify yourselves for the task before you. ln any event each and everyone will do all in his power to "Keep 'em Flying." DURING Tl-IE PAST three years it has been my privilege to bid farewell to five different classes. ln each case goodfbye has been said with regret. But, the duty awaiting me a day or so hence, that of awarding diplomas to you, will prove more difficult to perform than any previous occasion because the "Pride of the Tide" is my class in a truer sense than has been any of the others. My class, l say, because you entered senior high school on the very day that l became principal of this institution and are, therefore, the first class to have completed its entire training under my supervision. So, in sending you forth I do so with the blessings of a father who says to his children, "Keep 'em Flying." Riiynimid E. Pullirli IU W' f Q01 Q Q. is with MAMIE SALLEE RAY B. SHAW Girls' Vice-Principal Boys' Vice-Principal Personnel Directors DUTIES OF A personnel director of an aircraft factory and those ot Mrs. Mamie Sallee, girls' vice- principal, might well be compared. Mrs. Sallee works in close conjunction with the students-the workers in the plant-in the planning ot social ac- tivities, assemblies, and a great many other student activities. Functioning directly under her super- vision are the Senior Student Body, the Venetian Ladies, and the Girls' League. She also supervises the work ot the publications statt. l l OF EQUAL iiviPoRTANcE are the duties of another personnel director- Ray B. Shaw, boys' vice-principal. l-le supervises the plant's athletic program, makes out the master sched- ule ot all senior high classes, and guides the general conduct ot the personnel. Also under Mr. Shavv's supervision are the air-raid war- dens and fire brigades. l-lis other duties in- clude directing the hall and ground trattic and acting as adviser to the junior Student Body. Student Body Prexy Jack Adams, holding down the important job of plant engineer during the first semester, presided over student body and council meetings and supervised assemblies and social affairs. Jack also served as head of the Western League Cabinet, an organization formed to promote sports- manship among the league schools. Plant ,ff JACK ADAMS Student Body President First semester All too soon comes the inevitable day of graduation from high school. Most Sincerely, of us do not know the full realization of this statement until the day of leav- ing arrives. Then we look back and think of the many good times we have had throughout our school years. I feel that the fall semester has been one of the most successful l have ever experienced in my years at Venice. Record-breaking semesters such as this one are made possible by you and you alone. The student bodies of Ven- ice in the past years have made our school one of the top schools in Southern California. This high standard was accomplished not only in athletic achieve- ments but in scholarship as well. Venice is a school of which we can all be proud. If you remember to apply the school motto, "Rowing, Not Drifting," Venice High School will be tops in any league. Good-bye and good luck. Plant Foremen The leaders of the Student Body meet in a group called the Executive Council. Their duties are similar to those of foremen of a defense plant.

Playdays and community sings were made a bi- monthly feature. Phil also was elected vice-president of the Western League Cabinet. PHIL KOVINICK Student Body President Second semester Semesters may come and go, but the term of S42 will be recorded in the annals of history. Not only has this been a significant year for Venetians but Americans throughout the United States have felt the importance of hard work and service to their country during this world struggle. We have all realized the value of unity, not only of purpose but of mind. lvlany of our alumni and fellow students have given the supreme sacrifice in this fight for freedom. Therefore, it is our proud duty to our country and to them to do our part and "Keep 'Em Flying" to victory. l feel fortunate to have been your student body president during this time. My graduation is a sad yet happy occasion for me. lt is sad in the realization that my high school career is over and that l am leaving so many of my friends. On the other hand, it is happy for me in the completion of a success- ful semester socially, scholastically and athletically. Good luck and "Keep 'Em Flying."

Men I Plans tor assemblies and other activities are made at sessions of the Boys' Union Executive Board. I No paper is thrown away in war times Instead, it is sent to the old cafeteria where members of the Boys' Union bale an average of 'SOO pounds per week. The Boys' Union, like the Girls' League, comprises the leadmen of the campus. This organization was formed with the purpose in mind that boys of Venice High enjoy as- sembling and taking part in constructive discussion about school problems that con- cern or especially interest them. Purpose of the Union is to instill an active school spirit among the boys by means of varied activities and assemblies, Like the co-eds, Venice boys are doing their share to "keep 'em flying." A notable example is the paper drive through which the Boys' Union collects and bales approxi- mately one hundred pounds a day. High- lights of assemblies sponsored by the Boys' Union have been speakers, musical pro- grams, gymnastics, and moving pictures. In the March assembly Pat Silvestri and Alfie Fink gave the boys a thrill by staging a three-round boxing bout. Referee john Bell called the match a draw. Mr. David Schlosser sponsors the group, which is led by elective officers. Ernie Tol- man was president during the first semester and Victor Liotta during the second term. "Vic" was assisted by john Cannon, vice- president, and jim Akoury, secretary. Serv- ing on the executive council one or both semesters were Anthony Taravella, Dudley Pearson, Phil Kovinick, Dick Williams, Don Brady, johnny Lewis, Bob Mandemaker, john Cannon, and jim Akoury.

Developing pow- ers ot analysis and reasoning and attaining mathematical skill are major ai-ms. THE MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT endeavors to meet the mathematical needs of all pupils, to make sure that every graduate knows certain fundamental processes, and to give senior boys with average ability a knowledge ot advanced math required by the armed forces and industry. Speakers from the service and from industry have addressed upper-grade students, impressing upon them the dominant role that mathematics plays in the curriculum during the present war period.

The Gridiron Season LOSINC- 6 to 0 to Samohi in the first game of the year would be enough to darken the hopes of almost any team-but not the Venice Ciondoliers. They proved to be made of the stuff that produces real champions by going on from there to win every game on their regular schedule and walk away with the Western League crown. Nine lettermen and a list of hopefuls from last year's championship Bee team gave every indica- tion that the C-ondoliers would have a banner year. After much hard practice and stiff training, Coach Crayson Turney finally assembled the eleven best men to form the nucleus for the league champs of '42, The starting team lined up as follows: Ernie Tolman, l90 lbs., right end, Bob lvlandemaker, 240 lbs., right tackle, Dan l-lile, l80 lbs., right guard, Lee Rosier, 200 lbs., center, Carl Brush, l55 lbs., left guard, lim Constant, 200 lbs., left tackle, Ed Stepner, l8'5 lbs., left end, Frank Lescoulie, l65 lbs., quarterback, jack Kenning, 205 lbs., Bob Bates, l90 lbs., james Nickell, l6'5 lbs., at the halves, and Phil Kovinick, 200 lbs., fullback. The Venice starting eleven was a giant unit, averaging over l90 pounds on the line and also in the back- field. AFTER DROPPING the seasons opener to Santa Monica, Venice came back in fine fashion to take a better than average North Hollywood team l3-0. The score did not indicate how much Venice out- classed the valley-men, for they threw many touch- downs away. UNll-ll was the first league game for the Venice boys, who gave the Warriors a royal drubbing of the tune of 20-0. This was followed the next week by an identical beating, with HOL- LYWOOD the victim. Dorsey, Hamilton, and Fairfax were next to fall to Venice in successive games. The DONS took a terrific beating, the score reading 33-0. Then, with the championship hinging on the l-lAlVllLTON game, Venice came through with a 2l-6 victory. The six points made by the Yanks were the only ones scored against Venice in league competition. FAIRFAX proved an easy victim in the final game, being trampled under a 29 to 0 score. In the final totaling of points, Venice tied with Franklin for high scoring honors in the city, the Condoliers making l23 points in league play as against 6 for their opponents.

This distinction shows the respect in which Coach Turney's eleven was held by sports writers, coaches, and other league elevens. "Man Moun- tain" Bob Mandemaker, great Venice tackle, re- ceived the highest honor when he was chosen tirst string tackle on the All-Southern California teami Ernie Tolman, master end, made the second team. Both ot these boys also made the first All-City and All-Western teams.

Mention should also be made ot Brush, Bates, Constant, and Kovinick, The tirst three deserved honors as much as anyone, while Kovinick lost every chance due to a severely torn knee.

The game proved to be a dull affair. The Ciondoliers had the Vikes deep in their territory all day until a Samohi punt was fumbled in 'the fourth quarter. This proved the break that decided the game. However, it took Samohi seven plays to get over from the nine yard line, Duncan accounting for the points. Barney King and loe Duncan looked good for Samohi, while jim Con- stant, Carl Brush, Dan Hile, Phil Kovinick, Lee Rosier, and Ernie Tolman were outstanding on the Conclolier eleven.

The game, played at Clark Field on October l7, was Venice all the way, with Bob Bates the individual star. After a listless first quarter, the Gondoliers be- gan clicking. Early in the second quarter Kenning flipped a 20 yard pass to Big Tolman, who lateraled to Ed Stepner.

In the third quarter Venice scored twice and in the fourth period once. These touchdowns came as the re- sults ofa pass from Nickell to Kenning, a pass from Kovinick to Kenning, and a long run on an inter- cepted pass by Lee Rosier, center.

Coming to life after a first-quarter relapse, the Condoliers scored a touchdown in the first three plays of the second stanza, the tally coming as the result of a beautiful end run by jimmy Nickell, who galloped ZO yards through the Colonial eleven. Nickell then cooly kicked the extra point. In the third quarter, the Condoliers took advan- tage of a bad kick by Lloyd Miller and took over on the Colonial 36 yard line.

Gur Pilot Attaining a long-sought goal, Coach Cray- son Turney led the Venice footballers to their first Western League championship, The ac- complishment was due no end to the excellent coaching of genial Mr. Turney. During his college days, Turney performed brilliantly at U.C,L.A. where he was a two-year letterman in varsity football and the teams high scorer. ln varsity baseball Turney also distinguished himself. He captained the team one season and was a three-year letterman. .Q ws Venice 29, Fairfax 0 With two Fairfax Colonials hanging onto him, Tol- man, Gondolier end, snags a lateral from Ed Ste-pner, who is just out of the picture.

First of these scores came as a result of a twenty-yard pass from "lock" Kenning to Ernie Tolman. Shortly after, Venetians drove to the Colonial five, from where they proceeded to tally on their well-known lateral pass play. It started with Harding reversing to Les- coulie, who lateralled and then passed to Kenning for the touchdown. Williams successfully convert- ed. The safety came as a result of a blocked kick by Akoury to Cazin. The running and passing of jimmy Nickell and lack Kenning, the kicking of Bob Bates. and the de- fensive work of Phil Kovinick, Carl Brush, and Dan Hile proved instrumental in Venice's victory, X W ea Goncloliers A.

Football Carnival, November 28, since the Condoliers had taken the Western League championship. Their opponents were the formida- ble Bell Eagles of the Eastern League. After a tough start due to the bad showing of Unihi which put Venice in the hole and paved the way for a Bell touchdown, Venice and Bell played on even terms, each tallying once. The C-ondoliers scored because of the terrific running of Kenning and Nickell, while the Eagles were paced to their second touchdown by Leo Riggs, this time on a long pass from Riggs to Brooks, Bell end.

While Cannon was not so colorful, he proved himself one of the best defensive men seen at Venice in many years.

FINISHING IN FIFTH PLACE, the Condolier baseball nine experienced a disastrous season. This year's team was composed of five returning letter- men, four men from the Bee's, and three from last year's reserve varsity. ln Dan I-lile and Lee Rosier, Coach Turney had two of the finest pitcher-out- fielders in the Western League. HiIe's injury in one of the first practice games, however, was extreme- ly costly. Lack of hitting with men on base was the cause of defeat in many instances. Defensively speaking, Coach Grayson Turney's nine was one of the best in the League, but offensively they were relatively weak. ln ten games Venice made thirty-five runs, which was good enough to give them only three of the ten games. LEE ROSIER WALKED OFF with practically all the honors for the Venice boys. He was placed on the first string All-City nine as an outfielder, was named first string All-Western outfielder, and led the team in batting. Rosier's enviable average of .379 netted him these honors. IIMIVIY NICKELL was named the teams most valuable man. Third in batting, Nickell's all-around versatility in every department earned him this se- lection. Ray I-Iorton received the honor of being chosen as first string All-Western third baseman. Ray batted a healthy ,344 to deserve this selection, "U'd" Kirkelie was elected captain of the nine be- cause of his steady, cool playing under pressure.

WITH ONLY ONE returning letterman, the Clon- dolier varsity spikemen found themselves short of experienced men this season. This, and an over- whelming amount of competition, spelled their doom in their practice tilt and first two league en- counters. On April I7 Coach Charles Creen's blue and white spikesters invaded Travis Field at Banning High School for a much needed practice meet after being inactive during the wet spell. The Wilming- ton horde swarmed over Venice 64-45 and walked off with eight firsts, including the relay. Top Con- dolier performances were turned in by Burt Sheriff who skimmed over the high hurdles for first place, and was runner-up in the lows. Co-Captain Way- man Darby garnered a first in the lows and a sec- ond in the century. Other firsts taken by Venice were jim Nickell's win in the pole-vault and Cal Porter's winning leap in the high jump. Other point earners were Ivan Middlebrook, jack Simonson, Harold C-iovanazzi, Dick Williams, and Co-Captain lim Pfeiffer. APRIL 24 VENICE went to Rancho La Cienega Playground to meet a record-breaking Dorsey aggre- gation. The Venetians were favored, but the sup- posedly underdog Dorsey outfit handed the Condo- liers a rude upset. Copping nine firsts and breaking three records, they plastered Venice 79 to 29. Burt Sheriff clipped two-tenths off the I2O high hurdle record as he turned in a time of I5.7 seconds. Point earners were Nickell, Okomoto, Middlebrook, Darby, lerke, Porter, and Brunner. The C-ondoliers met Hamilton May I at the Yan- kee oval and were handed a 60 V2 to 43V2 defeat. Hamihi captured eight firsts to Venice's three. jake Mitchell sailed home victorious in the 220, Sheriff took a first in the high hurdles, Dick Williams won the shot, and the relay team won for the Condo- lier firsts. Darby, Ciovanazzi, Simonson, Sheriff, Brunner, and Black took second, while Nickell, Por- ter, jerke, and Darby nabbed thirds. Results of lat- er meets and of the finals cannot be given since the Condolier had already gone to press. .

Top scorer for the Bee's was Captain Tommy Duff, who could be counted on as a dependable point earner in the l00 yard dash, the 70 yard high hurdles, and the high jump.

ALTHOUGH THEY LOST their first two league meets, the Venice Cee spikesters showed promise of developing into a fairly powerful track squad. ln both meets they put up a better showing than eith- er of the other two Venice squads, and the scores of these meets showed that the midgets were defin- itely improving at the time the Condolier went to press. Rodney Lundin and Don Boharques were the top men for the Cee's. Lundin participated in the high jump, in which his best record was 5 ft. l0, and in the shot put, while Boharques ran the fifty yard dash, the broad jump, and took part in the relays. Other point earners for the Cee's were "Army" Lockwood, l00 yard dash: loe Marquez, hurdles and Harlan Tingler, pole vault. Unlike the Bee'S, the midget four-man 440 yard relay squad won one of its two races, edging out Hamilton in close com- petition.

UNH-ll, FIRST LEAGUE OPPONENT, surprised everyone by taking Venice easily, 5 matches to 2, all of the Venice men playing far below par except the doubles teams. Fairfax made it two losses in a row when, led by the Falkenburgs, they defeated Venice 6-l. john Cannon, though defeated, showed up well against Bob Falkenburg, junior national champion. Apparently destined to have a losing year, the Gondoliers lost a heart-breaker to l-lolly- wood 4-3.

I Seniors W'42 Readers of Walt Whitman's immortal "O Captain! My Captain!" know that it is unforgettable-a beautiful tribute to a great man, Abraham Lincoln. Paraphrasing the poem, seniors of W'42 might relate to Lincoln the following account of their exploits at Venice I-ligh: O CAPTAIN! MY CAPTAIN! OUR FEARFUL TRIP IS DONE ..,, We reached Venice junior High and entered her wide portals in january, l936. Our chests expanded and our eyes were bright for here we were, scrubs at long Iastl . . . Gaining knowledge through the years, we were promoted to the lofty pinnacle of A9's, where we were governed by our junior Student Body officers-Billie Brown, prexyg Donley Brady, vice-prexy, james I-lines, secretary, Betty Buck, treas- urer.

We received our junior high diplomas February 3, IQ39, and were happy beyond words. for now we were in high school.

We became known as "The Rage of the Age," with each class member known as a "gringo"-and with the motto before us, "Winter '42, Always Something New." Our officers were Donley Brady, prexyg jean Larson, vice-prexy: Charles Anderson, secretary-treasurer. WI-IILE FOLLOW EYES TI-IE STEADY KEEL, Tl-IE VESSEL CIRIM AND DARINC .... One of the most unfor- gettable events was Senior Sweater Day. As we displayed our apple-green and white sweaters by dancing the con- ga across the stage, the realization came upon us that now we were the leaders of the school-with responsibilities -and we went straight ahead to fulfill these duties. O CAPTAIN! MY CAPTAINI RISE UP AND I-IEAR Tl-IE BELLS .... The "Witches Whirlf' spinsters' prom held in October, was an all-out success . . . and we displayed our unconquerable might on the gridiron by walking away with the Western League football championship. Then on December 7 America was plunged into WORLD WAR ll. Nearly all social events were curtailed . . . evening affairs were cancelled . . . but Venetians know how to cooperate in time of stress. There were no groans of anguish when it was revealed that it would be impossible to put on a senior play or operetta and that the senior banquet and prom would be held in the afternoon instead of the evening-for after all, our motto was "Winter '42, Always Something New." RISE UP-FOR YOU Tl-IE FLAC IS FLUNC-FOR YOU Tl-IE BUCLE TRILLS I... The Oarsman sponsored a "Typical American Contest" in january of '42, for in war-time it was thought desirable to know the traits that should be possessed by the typical American boy and girl. jack Adams of our class and Billie Davis, senior B, were winners.

I Seniors S'42 IUST AS AN AIRPLANE goes through the various stages of production, so does the average student of any educational institution. His progress can be traced as he passes through the engineering department, goes on the assembly line, is given a test flight, and finally is ready for delivery-as the finished product. The high and mighty seniors of the Summer '42 class came to Venice High School in September, I936. As scrubs they could be compared to the raw material in an aircraft factory. Plans for perfecting "it," for the development of citizenship and high ideals, were carried out by the Engineering Depart- ment or faculty. Before long, the B7's were A9's, leaders of the junior high school. Student body officers, like junior plant foremen, guided their activities. Bruce Ferguson was presi- dent, Billie Mae Davis, vice-president, Barbara Lindberg, sec- retary, and Richard Rexer, treasurer. THEIR PROCRESS CONTINUED, as an airplane continues along the assembly line, through those new and frightening W w1,.' W PILOTS The high 'n highty seniors of Summer '42, other- wise known as the "Pride of the Tide," became fa- miliar around the campus in their royal blue and white sweaters, symbolic of Venice High. Captain of the crew was Bob Kidd ileft, Barbara Lindberg lrightl was vice-president, Irene McClellan Isecond from lefti, secretaryg and Ruth Furgeson lsecond from rzghtl, treasurer. semesters of the tenth and eleventh grades, during which time they dreamed of the day when they would be- come unified into one group as seniors .... Finally the great day came when the group was ready for its TEST FLIGHT, for the purpose of testing its ability to carry on successfully the training it had received. They were unit- ed under the direction of Mrs. Effie Morrison and Mr. Irving Fordham as senior B's, with johnny Lewis as their leader. During this semester-which proved a crucial period in the history of the nation-they began to feel that they were coming closer and closer to their ultimate goal. At last on February 2, I942, they reached that goal, they were senior A's, "Pride of the Tide." Their pilot was Bob Kidd, assisted by Barbara Lindberg, vice-president, Irene lVIcClellan, secretary, and Ruth Furgeson, treasurer. Choosing royal blue and white for their colors, the i'Pride of the Tide" celebrated Senior Sweater Day February 27, l942, with a banquet and assembly. Every Wednesday was chosen as the day when seniors should wear their sweaters and be easily distinguished. SENIORS ENTERED whole-heartedly into war activities. Boys became members of the Boys' Battalion and fire brigade, girls joined the Ambulance Corps. Still others made model planes for the government, received First Aid certificates, invested in war stamps and bonds. Ephebians were chosen April 27 by members of the class and the faculty. Receiving this honor were Phil Kovinick, Billie Mae Davis, Barbara Lindberg, Bruce Ferguson, and Victor Liotta, Then came the day of the musical comedy, "Oh Doctor," sponsored by the senior A class and presented by the music and dance departments. At.19st the DELIVERY OF THE FINISHED PRODUCT was in sight, the remaining days of their high school years were coming to an end. The long-awaited prom and banquet were at hand. Because of the war-emergency these affairs had to be given in the afternoon instead of the evening, but this did not detract from their success. Finally a successful delivery was made june 24, I9-42, when I6O members ended their six years "in production" with re- gret but with readiness to go out into the world to aid others and "KEEP 'EM FLYINC-." Dispatchers Irving Fordham and Mrs. Effie Morrison supervised the S'42 class, getting the "finished product" ready for final delivery.
