THE PILOT guns the motors and the crowd is held in
thrilling suspense as the plane rolls majestically down the
field. It lifts its magnificent wings into the heavens - a fin-
ished product of amazing engineering and shop skill . . . guid-
ed to its destination with unerring accuracy by a competent
just as proud as its designer are the workers who have ex-
erted sweat and action comparable to the blood and action of
the battle line in creating this modern war machine. Their
flying fortresses, dive bombers, and pursuit ships will win
glory with victory, as will the graduating student who has
been put to the test of systematic labor and has been given
not only knowledge and competence but a strong sense of so-
cial obligation. America needs more men and planes of this
caliber to "KEEP 'EM FLYING l"

RAYMOND E, POLLlCl-l is the chief engi-
neer-the man whose unerring judgment,
keen decisiveness, and clear thinking make
him the backbone of the factory, the "power
behind the guns."
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."

MAMIE SALLEE RAY B. SHAW
Girls' Vice-Principal Boys' Vice-Principal
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.
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.
Student Body President
All too soon comes the inevitable day of graduation from high school. Most
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.
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.

Under Plant Engineer Phil Kovinick's guidance, the
Venice High Student Body had a banner semester.
Playdays and community sings were made a bi-
monthly feature. Phil also was elected vice-president
of the Western League Cabinet.
Student Body President
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."

In the engineering department ot Venice High is the vital maintenance department, titled the
House of Delegates. It gathers the opinions ot the student body and from them forms suggestions
tor the improvement of the school, such as means ot fostering school spirit, directing a clean cam-
pus campaign, and assisting in the paper drive. lt is the middle-man between the administration
and the Student Council on the one hand, and the student body on the other, tor the opinions ot
both pass through the House of Delegates. Presiding as speaker of the House during the fall semes-
ter was Dick Williams, Miss Alice Applegate was faculty adviser.

The Venetian judges, like aircraft inspectors, are
responsible for the perfection or rejection of parts
before they progress further along the assembly
line. The Student Court is one of the most effec-
tive means by vvhich democracy functions in the
school. ln the court-room, before six judges and a
chief justice, students are given a "trial" before
demerits, sent in by teachers, may be imposed.
judges are selected by the student body at the
Bruce Ferguson, June Perry,
semi-annual elections. The chief justice, who must
have served as a judge the previous semester, is in
court every morning to try special cases, whereas
the other judges serve on the bench the three days
a week when court is in session before school from
8 to 8:25 o'clock, Vice-Principal Ray B. Shaw
sponsors the group, which had as chief justice dur-
ing the fall semester Phil Kovinick and during the
spring term his brother Mark.

As the winter semester ends, I would like
to extend my thanks for the fine sports-
manship and cooperation that I received
from each and every one of you as a student

we have had a successful term,
Serving as your president was a privilege
and an experience I shall hold as one of my
most cherished memories.

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

The war has brought about so insistent a demand tor
skill in mathematics that this department is becoming
one of the most vital in the curriculum. Developing pow-

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

some historical approa

are only a few of the ai
department. As an aid toward realizing these pur-
poses, students make models of war implements,
compose notebooks on soldiers and equipment, and
study the causes and effects of dictators. Classes
have been saluting the flag in Latin or Spanish,
singing patriotic songs, and constructing games and

Ancient antiques, rare art objects, and priceless vases
such as the famed lekythos of the Phiale painter are only

WHAT WOULD VENICE do without its public address
crew? The P. A. system is used to announce football games
and track meets, at outdoor assemblies and graduation. Bob
Heagy and Bob Pierce broadcast popular recordings during the
noon hour and at playday dances. The crew, directed by Mr.
Drew Amo, builds and maintains all amplifiers, phonographs,
and sound equipment. Appearing in the picture are Manager
Andy Oclen, who announces at football and other athletic
meetsg Bob Flickinger, Stanley Spiwak, and Bud Maddocks,
who handles the field telephone.
THE PROIECTION CREW, under the advis-
ership of Mr. joshua Hoover, receives all films
and has complete charge of their projection,
both at assemblies and in classrooms. The
boys must thread the projector properly and
see that the image appears on the screen dis-
tinctly. They must also be able to perform
minor repairs on the projector and be able to r
patch a film in case of a break. Appearing
left to right in the photo are Wilbert Smith,
Rodger Lowe, Bob Flickinger, Martin Taylor,
Ellis Herman, Albert Hook, Don Schleiter, Bob
Pierce, and Laurence Herman.

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-
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.

awaited contest between the rival schools was played at Rancho La

all over the field, the C-ondoliers lost on a tough break.
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.

DETERMINED TO WIN the Western League
championship, Venice l-ligh's mighty football eleven
started off on the right foot by whitewashing Uni-
versity in the league opener 20-O. 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. Stepner went to the l8 and in three
downs the Gondoliers were across the goal, with
Bates going over from the 6 yard marker.
MIXING PASSING AND RUNNING to perfec-
tion, the mighty machine from the beach city rolled
to its second successive league win, this time over
the Hollywood Sheiks 20 to O in a game played Oc-
tober 31 at Venice. The Redshirts were outclassed
all the way because of the brilliant work of the
First Venice score came when Capt. Kovinick
blasted over from the three-yard line in the first
Then in the third quarter came the play that
ruined Unihi. From deep in his own territory Bates
booted a magnificent kick that traveled 77 yards
to the Warrior 22. Lee Rosier intercepted a Unihi
pass on the next play and two plays later, Bates
plunged over for the score. Not satisfied with two
touchdowns, Venice collected a third in the final
quarter. Bates plunged through the line and when
about to be tackled, lateraled to Kenning, who went
over for the score.
Everyone on the team looked good, playing a

quarter. This was followed by another score in the
second quarter, Kenning passing to Tolman for the
points, Not satisfied with two touchdowns, Venice
put "Automatic lack" Kenning into the game in
the third quarter and bang, another touchdown, this
this time from Kenning to Stepner.
All the blue and white men looked mighty good,

SCORINC IN EVERY QUARTER, the Condolier
powerhouse rolled to an easy 33-O victory over Dor-
sey High November 7 at Rancho La Cienega Play-
ground. This was the greatest number of points
Venetians scored in any single game.
First touchdown came as a result of a pass from
Capt. Kovinick to Tolman, This was followed in
the second quarter by a brilliant run of 45 yards on
the part of lim Nickell for the second score. 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.

THE FACT THAT THEY had already captured
the championship proved no obstacle to the Con-
doliers as they took Fairfax into camp on Van Cleve
Field November l9. Venetians rolled up a score of
29 to O to swamp the Colonials.
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. "Foch" Lescoulie fired a
pass to Ed Stepner, who lateralled to Ernie Tolman
for the score.
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.
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. Mandemaker 1353,
Kenning I22l, and Constant 133i can also be seen

Determined to equal Franklin High School's
league scoring record, the Venice boys staged a ter-
rific scoring splurge in the fourth quarter, bringing
across two touchdowns and a safety. 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,

VENICE AC-AIN RECEIVED the honor of being
invited to play in the L. A. Memorial Coliseum at
the P.-T.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.
Venice represented the North in this fracas and
Bell the South. When all the battling was over in
the six periods, the score stood at I9 all.

HANDICAPPED BY lack of experienced men, SUMMARY
Coach john Bell's Bee football team completed the
season by winning one game, tying one, and losing
five. On October 2 the Condo-Babes traveled to
Santa Monica only to wind up on the short end of
a 6 to O score. Playing their hearts out, the Venice
boys next went down before a superior San Pedro
eleven by the score ot 34 to 6.
Poor pass defense cost the Bee's their first league
encounter, with the University Warriors, by a score
of l2 to 7. Winning their only game ot the season,
the Crondo-Babes routed the highly touted Fairfax
squad to the tune ot l2 to O. lnvading Snyder
Field, the Condoliers tangled with the Hollywood
Redshirts for a O to O score. Coach l3ell's boys lost
to Dorsey and Hamilton by similar scores of 7 to O.

placed a man on an All-City basketball team and
two on the All-Western squad. The boys who re-
ceived this honor were Captain jim Pfeiffer, guard,
and john Cannon, forward. Pfeiffer easily main-
tained himself as the mainspring of the C-ondolier
attack and as one of the finest players in Venice
basketball history, scoring 76 points at his guard
position. While Cannon was not so colorful, he
proved himself one of the best defensive men seen
at Venice in many years. Pfeiffer made second

Cannon received second team All-Western League

THE C-ONDOLIER BEE'S finished their basketball season with two wins and eight defeats. However, like the
varsity, the Condo-Babes put up a stiff fight, losing most of their games by only a few points. The second games
with Hollywood and University proved heart-breakers when Venice dropped both contests by a mere two points.
Boys who saw the most action on the team were johnny Marquez and Don Cray, forwards: Bob Neece, playing
at the forward and center positionsg Bob Brown, playing at the forward, center, and guard positions: Robert Duron,
centerg and Anthony Taravella and john Trussell, guards. Players who showed the most improvement were Trussell

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-
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.

lack of experience, ended the season in fifth place
in league standings, with only one win out of five

games were wild-scoring affairs for the opponents,
Venetians showed improvement, losing the next
two games by only one run each and winning the
final match by a decisive score.

three records, they plastered Venice 79 to 29. Burt

record as he turned in a time of I5.7 seconds.
Point earners were Nickell, Okomoto, Middlebrook,

Bee and Cee Track
PROSPECTS for Bee tracksters did not look too
bright at the time the Condolier went to press, the
boys having been badly trounced by both Hamilton
and Dorsey in their first two league meets. ln a
previous practice meet with Banning, however, the
Bee's whipped the Pilots by a decisive score.
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. Close behind him were
Bud Widney and Ciilbert Anderson, shot-put: Chris
Marcus, 660 yard run, Anthony Taravella and
Cieorge Henderson, l20 yard low hurdles: Bill
Easom, broad jump, and Alfie Quintero, pole vault.
The Bee four-man 660 yard relay team fared bad-
ly at the beginning of the season, losing both to
Dorsey and Hamilton. The boys ran in the follow-
ing order: Tommy Duff, first ll0 yards: Cieorge
Henderson, ll0 yards, "Red" Taravella, 220 yards,
and anchorman Chris Marcus, 220 yards. Carlo
Sparti and Kenny Burch substituted when one of
the regulars was absent.

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
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. The relay team was composed of Don
Boharquez, loe Marquez, Rodney Lundin, and an-
chorman "Army" Lockwood.

Jordan and Robinson were the two outstanding men on Coa-ch
Hughes' 1942 gym team. Jordan was All-Western and All-City
man in the rings, while Robinson was high point man ot Western
League and chosen All-Western on the horizontal bar.
THIS YEAR'S gym team proved the best one Venice has
ever known. ln league meets, Coach "Applejack" Hughes'
boys lost only one contest- to Fairfax -and that by only
eleven points. They won all of their practice meets except
the one with San Fernando, which they dropped by the slim
margin of l U3 points. ln all their meets, the total number
of points scored by the C-ondoliers was 594 5X6 to their op-
ponents' 379 l!6. Venice's high point man was johnny Rob-
inson who amassed a total of SSVZ points in league meets
ln the Western League finals held April 8 at Fairfax, Ven-
ice placed second with a total of 32 points. Fairfax came in
first with 46V2. Point earners for Venice were johnny Robin-
son, who took a first on the horizontal bar, a third on the
long horse, and fourth in the free exercises, Kile jordan, who
took a first on the rings by executing several superb "iron
crosses" which put him far above other contestants in this

FOUR RETURNINC LETTERMEN and a host of
inexperienced aspirants were all that greeted Coach
Ben McFarland as the nucleus of a tennis team for
l942. john Cannon, four-year letterman, was the
racketmen's main hope and first man. The other
three were Bob Stone, Victor Liotta, and Frank
Russ. After many weeks of battling for good posi-
tions on the tennis ladder, the following team was
named to start the league season: Cannon, first sin-
gles, Stone, second singlesg Liotta, third singles,
Russ, fourth singles, Lyle, fifth singlesg Sullivan

everyone by taking Venice easily, 5 matches to 2,

the doubles teams. Fairfax made it two losses in a

up well against Bob Falkenburg, junior national

The Girls' Athletic Association
MEMBERSHIP IN THE GAA. is the goal ot
every athletic-minded girl at Venice High. The
athletic association, which is sponsored by Miss
Carolyn Mitchill, is made up ot approximately one
hundred senior high girls. In order to quality tor
membership, they must pass a skill test and a phy-
sical examination. Because ot these rigid require-
ments, the group prides itselt on its athletic ability
as well as its sportsmanship.
DURING THE FALL SEMESTER, Ci.A.A. mem-
bers were Ied in songs and cheers by those popular
and peppy yell leaders, Ellen Ware, Margaret Mel-
len, and Maxine Balfour. Through their splendid
spirit ot co-operation and sportsmanship, they
aroused a high pitch ot enthusiasm in Venetian-
ettes. With Lois McClellan as head yell leader, the
spring semester went into tull swing. Assisting her
in building up interest were Lois Petersen and Mary
Ware' Maxine Balfour.

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

wide portals in january, l936. Our chests expanded and our
eyes were bright for here we were, scrubs at long Iastl . . .

-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."

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
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
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-."
Irving Fordham and Mrs. Effie
Morrison supervised the S'42 class,
getting the "finished product" ready
for final delivery.
