Some impressions live only with the individual, It is the earnest ambition of
the staff of "The Log" to recreate fond memories of activitiesland organiza-
tions of the year i938-39,
As you turn the pages of memories, it is hoped that this eventful year will
never be forgotten,
Unimportant they may seem today, but one, five, or ten years hence they will
be fond recollections of the past.
As a gesture of appreciation lo our Principal,
Lee Ogden, vice-principal, Fred Newcomb, and dean
of girls, Miss Bidwell, who have guided our Mariner
craft so wisely and skillfully on its voyage during
1938-39, we are very happy to dedicate our first
annual, "The Log."

The staff of "The l.og" has had the privilege of editing the first annual
ever to be published in Ventura junior high school. In previous years, the
only records of school activities were bcund editions of our school newspaper,
the "Campus Chronicle." This year, however, after an energetic campaign,
"The Log," sponsored by the senior class, came into being, The staff was se-
lected on the basis of interest and writing ability, Each editor was responsible
for a particular section,
The campaign, which was led by Grace Moore and Bob lmmel under the
supervision of Carlton Thoms, was won by the boys. The graduates hope that
this annual campaign for sales will become a traditional contest between the
girls and boys. The A. S. B. presented a silver loving cup to the staff. Each
year on this cup will be engraved the name of the winning side, The "Boys of
'59" were so honored this year. The Iieutenants, chosen from the homerooms,
did much to aid in the success of the campaign. Since this was the first pub-
lication of its kind, the goal was set for the sale of 750 annuals. One thousand
were sold. Don Pulaski won the contest by selling over one hundred annuals,
Alice Knox ran a close second by selling seventy annuals.
Members of the staff were editor-in-chief, La Verne Weisel, activities, Merre
Jayne Pekor, classes, Donna Lee Wixson, organizations, Mary Lou Knox, ath-
letics, Frank Viveros, advertising manager, Lyle Stewart, business manager,
Cecil Thacker, art editor, Arthur Tarin, circulation, Don Pulaski, photographers,
Bob Sly, Elton Oliver.
A great part of the credit for the success of this yearbook goes to members of
the faculty who aided in the work. Miss Penney was in general charge. Miss
Cromwell had charge of photography and art work, and Wayne Simpson acted
as business advisor.

Beginning the festivities, the annual picnic was held on May 6 at Matilija plunge
where about l5O students enioyed several hours' swimming, hiking, eating, and
playing group sports. The iovial mixed group was carried by school bus to
Matiliia, leaving the school at lO a. m. and returning at S p. m.
Following this and promoted by the tens was the class day program, also an
annual event held in the auditorium during the last week of school and attended
by the whole school.
On the program were several numbers by the orchestra, an address by Gale
Graham, A. S. B. prexy, who presided over the entire affair, and a special intro-
duction by the tenth-grade class president, Bill I-litson. A band appropriately
called the Mariner Class orchestra, conducted by Melvin "Straus" Kirkman,
gave out with several delightful, popular numbers. All this preceded a novel
"Gay Nineties" program arranged by the musical department heads. With
Wilbur Jensen as master of ceremonies, Colleen Watson, Betty Higgins, Mary
Martha Morgan, and members of the Glee club were introduced as the perfor-
mers depicting those early days. Last but not least in this theme, a skit called
the "Cake Walk Dance" proved to be an hilarious affair.
The long-awaited will, history, and prophecy were then enacted by several
prominent students. Returning, Bill l-litson presented the school with the class
gift which consisted of a bright, gayly colored Mariner flag. To the new presi-
dent of the A. S. B., the Mariner Wheel was presented by Gale Graham in an
impressive ceremony. Principal Ogden made a short presentation and gave the
Doty Memorial to the outstanding commercial student of the year,
The graduation was held on Thursday evening, June 8, in the iunior high audi-
torium, which was filled to capacity. Carrying out several new ideas, the gradu-
ates wore bright blue caps and gowns, topped with a gold tassel and entered the
main auditorium doors alone. Following streamers, the graduates proceeded to
the platform to receive their diplomas. The partners walked together the last
six feet up the plank onto the Good Ship Mariner to conclude the ceremony.

At the helm of the' Good Ship Mariner this year. have been ten of the most
capable students in the school, elected to their positions by the student body.
The board was officially installed in an assembly early in the year, at which
time they pledged their services to the school.
For three years the major project sponsored by the A. S. B. has been the Mar-
iners' Variety show. The show, which was bigger and better than ever before,
cleared over three hundred dollars this year. The money received will be used
for student body necessities next fall. This year"the'student body purchasec
eighty new glee club robes as well as the customary football and basketball
Something new in school governments was started when the various A. S. B.
boards of Ventura county met several times last winter to discuss and help solve
difficult questions that came before the different groups.
The A. S. B. council, whose members are chosen from each home-room, offered
many suggestions to the board for approval in an effort to help improve our
One of the many duties of the board is to approve the use of money from the
A. S. B. fund. At their weekly meetings, the group decides questions important
to V. J. H. Most money-raising projects are managed by the commissioners.
Many sales of various kinds have been sponsored- by the commissioners to add
money to the steadily growing treasury.
Members of the board acted as the nominating committee for tenth grade offi-
cers. They also acted as a nominating committee on various other occasions,

One of the most active organizations in the school, to which all girls are
privileged to belong, is the Girls' League.
Their outstanding contribution of the year was the annual May celebration,
which this year was in the form of a carnival. Most of the active groups in the
school rented booths from the League for five per cent of their profit. The
May Queen, Ann Cooney, chosen from the tenth grade girls who had the high-
est number of merits, was crowned, as in former years, at this May festival.
The sponsors are a group of tenth grade girls whose duty it is to help their
"sponsettes," the seventh grade girls, to become acquainted with our school.
Several parties were held for the girls under the direction of the Hospitality
Committee, The Social Service Committee this year sent birthday presents to
the children in the County Hospital.

The Boys' League, an organization for all boys enrolled in Ventura junior nigh,
was formed in the school year, l933-34,
Many league assemblies were held thrcughtout the year. During the winter, thc
league presented a gym carnival in which student athletes demonstrated their
ability to wrestle, box, and play basketball, The faculty volley ball game was
also a big hit. Probably the most interesting event of the evening was an
exhibition of Japanese fencing and judo, presented by several boys from Oxnard.
Speaking at the various assemblies held were such interesting speakers as
Orrin Denny, noted lion hunter, who talked on his exciting adventures in Africa,
Highway Patrol Officer Brantley, who told of his daily experiences as an officer
of the law, and Sergeant Whitney of the U. S. Marine Corps, who gave a very
interesting and entertaining account of his life as a Marine.
The Boys' and Girls' Leagues combined to give several assemblies, among
which was the annual assembly which one group sponsors and the other follows
with a dance. This year the girls had charge of the assembly and the boys gave
the dance, which turned out to be a huge success, Perhaps one of the main
reasons why the dance was a success was that cider and doughnuts were served
to the entire crowd.

The Girls' Athletic Association, which is open to girls of all grades, has had a
very busy and eventful year,
The annual hockey spread honored the girls who had won their awards in the
winter sports, and award winners tor spring athletics were presented with their
trophies at the big banquet held this spring.
The following awards are given: numerals, lOO points or first team in any
sport, triangle V, 850 points, block V, ISOO points, the big chenille V for the
three girls with the largest number of points,
Sports this year have included speedball, volley ball, hockey, basketball, base-
ball tennis, dancing, badminton, deck tennis, and ping pong, Many tournament
play-offs were held in all individual sports.
The letterwomen, although unorganized, attended potlucks given by the letter
winners of Ventura county.
Two playdays were held with neighboring towns with V. J. H. coming through
with high honors. One of the playdays, held in Ventura, was in the form of a
handicap with each town taking the name of a race horse. An assembly, several
races, including a relay, and an award presentation took place at the playday.
Volley ball, baseball, tennis, and badminton were played during the race time.

On the gridiron, the concert stage, and in parades the Ventura junior high
band has been a huge success this year,
During the football season, they executed marching maneuvers never before
attempted on our football field, The stunt that most of us will remember was
a novel idea, Out of an airplane formed by the band, Reginald James, dressed
as a Mariner pilot, pursued a Yellow-jacket, Oxnard high's symbol, and finally
caught him, killing him with a flysprayer, and mournfully carried him off the
field to the dirge of taps. Another outstanding performance of the band was
given when the combined junior college and junior high bands gave a brilliant
exhibition of marching at a junior college night game.
ln the Armistice Day parade and at the Christmas preview, the augmented
band of eighty-five members marched down the street in arrow-straight ranks
and played music that would have done credit to any band.
To climax the year's work, the band gave a brilliant performance at the annual
musical assembly, held in the middle of April. Among their attractions were
the difficult overture, "William Tell", a trumpet sextet playing the Herbert
Clark composition "Flirtations", a twirling stunt in which the advanced members
of the twirling class performed expertly, a novel comedy ocarino quartet,
which set the entire audience to roaring with their discords and original
arrangemements of their music.
The band has been led in the past year by Lee Howell.

The Ventura iunior high dance band has been a very active organization during
the year i938-39. It has furnished music for all the school dances and the
lettermen's hop, A selected group, who were afterward highly commended for
their work, played dinner music at the Ventura Chamber of Commerce ban-
quet. Their outstanding performance of the year was given in the Variety Show.
Membership in this organization is wholly optional. The members are selected
on the basis of their ability and desire to become dance musicians, They
receive no compensation, except the musical experience. The music is furnished
by the A, S. B.
The 'orchestra is composed of sixty students from the seventh to the tenth
grades, and it, as well as the dance band, is under the direction of Lee Howell.
This musical group has participated in all of the assemblies and outstanding
events this year. They also furnished the musical background for the Mariners'
The orchestra deserves to be highly complimented for their fine performance
given in the annual musical assembly, in which both the orchestra and the band
performed. After playing the brilliant strains of the "NC-4" march, they
proved their ability to play difficult symphonies by giving a superb interpreta-
tion of the "Dance Macabre" and "Beethoven's Fifty Symphony in C Minor."
As a novel presentation, a bottle band played a humorous version of "Old
Folks at Home,"

Pioneering in junior high, Shore Leave made its sensational debut on Friday,
March Bl, l939, and was received with intense enthusiasm.
The whole school, including teachers, dressed up in some type of costume
and wore them throughout the day, ln the afternoon, after shortened classes,
the main events took place in the stadium. First on the program was a Rugby
game between the ninth and tenth grade boys, in which the latter won. A
mixed boys' and girls' track meet and pie-eating contest followed the game.
Winning the pie-eating contest was Mary King.
The events of the track meet were a girls' 50 yard dash, sack race, eight-man
shuttle relay, and eight-man 440 yard relay.
A Grand March followed for the purpose of selecting the outstanding costumes.
Ernie Rolls and Edith Hawkins received a wallet and a gold compact, respect'
ively, as prizes for their originality. Edith was dressed as Huckleberry Finn and
was near perfection in the role, Ernie, in an outfit that suits his personality,
was dressed as an umbrella clown.
The only two entries for the beard contest were Bill Reed for the fanciest and
Bob Smith for the heaviest. The two received tubes of shaving cream.
Color week was held during the week preceding our first football game and was
truly the most loyally colorful week of the school year! Everyone wore our
school's colors-royal blue and glittering gold-or else! Officers were posted
in the halls to take the names of people who violated the law, who if caught
off guard, were placed in the custody of Judge Gilfinkus of the Kangaroo Kourt
and then were scheduled to appear before the court sometime during the
football season to receive their penalties.
The Kourt was held in the stadium on September 20 following a football game
and Judge Gilfinkus, alias Gale Graham, presided. After taking vows and
ceremoniously kissing the red arithmetic book, each of the offenders was taken
to the Judge and asked a leading question. lf he replied truthfully a white
light shone, but if he answered th question falsely, a red light flashed accom
panied by the embarrassing whirr of a lie-detecting bell.

Swinging to the steps of the Suzie Q and the Lambeth Walk ninth and tenth
graders have crowded the girls' gym during the past year enjoying the excellent
music of the iunior-high dance band and the splendid floor at the gym
All of these dances except the first, at which the A. S B Commissioners were
hosts and hostesses, were sponsored by three or four homerooms under the super
vision of Miss Bidwell and Grace Moore.
These matinee dances were held at month and a half periods and were invitational
to a few eighth graders. The only school dance that accepted seventh graders
was the Shore-Leave dance, which was the climax of that eventful day
At each dance, student talent furnished an interesting intermission ln addr
tion to the regular dances, special dances such as the lemon dance German
dance, and the whistle dance were added to the programs

Latin students ioined together to entertain their mothers and other guests with
several plays at their annual party and program Tuesday, March Zl, in the school
auditorium and girls' gym.
Warren Mann opened the program with a speech of thanks to the many
people who helped to make the party a success, Carrying out the classical theme
Newell Zaph played two well-known piano selections, "Moonlight Sonata" and
The first play was an enactment of a court trial testing the Latin language.
The last two plays, which were in Latin, dealt with heroic, mythical characters,
the plots of which were told before they were presented.
Following a musical program, refreshments were served in the girls' gym.
Those taking part in the program were Helen Pendleton, harpist, Janice Adams,
pianist, Nina Johnson, songstress, Bettyiean Wilcox, accordianist, Mickey and
Richard Hembree, guitarists, Melvin Kirkman, saxaphone player, and Walter

December I3 was not bad luck as predicted but remains vividly stamped in
the minds of the second-year Spanish classes, for that was the date of the
annual Spanish Christmas party at which they enjoyed gay, quaint customs and
The highlight of the affair was the gaily bedecked "pinata." The pinata, an
old Spanish Christmas custom, is a huge crock filled to the top with delightful
gifts, nuts, fruit, and candy. lt is hung from the ceiling, and the participants
are blindfolded, then given a strong stick, and turned around three times. They
are then told to hit the pinata and break it, but it finally had to crash to the
floor to break.
Alice Valera and Evangeline Guzman were in charge of decorating the pin-
ata, Helen Alexakis and Norma Dahlgren, with the aid of their refreshment
committee, served punch, ice cream, and delicious cakes, and Cecil Thacker
headed the brigade making up the clean-up committee.
Successfully handled by three charming hostesses, Lois Todd, Phyllis West
and Betty Cook, the ninth grade girls' party given by the Girls' L ague So ial
Service committee was held in the lounge of the girls' gym, February Zl
For entertainment, two dancing contests were held, a waltz and a iitterbug
Betty Curtis and Nina Johnson won the waltz, and two couples, Phyllis West
and Lois Todd, Colleen Watson and Marie Miles, won the jitterbug
Refreshments were served by Jean Ann Weir, Helen Pendleton and Jean
Hinsdale, members of the Social Service committee, who sponsored the affair
The glasses of punch, accompanying small tea cookies, were attractively
arranged to form a large V. J. H.

The most important and probably longest remembered event in connection
with V. J. H. S, talent is our annual Mariners' Variety Show. This year, l939,
gave to the student body and community a top-notch show with all performers
turning in splendid performances.
Grumps, a crotchety, bitter old man was excellently portrayed by Gale Graham.
Another stellar performer was little Toddy, played by Russell Hodgson, who
encouraged the troup of performers that were stranded by a halted train to
"strut their stuff." Patient, understanding Grandma was ably done by Genoa
O'Neal. The time was early dusk and the place was Grump's garden. ..lnto the
calm, peaceful night came the chatter of worried actors and actresses who had
wandered into the vicinity of the garden,
The performers, who, finally, with the aid of Toddy and Grandma, went through
their acts, included such stars and novelties as Bettyjean Wilcox and Chuck
Kane in an accordian duet, beautiful, soft, harp music, played by Helen Pendle-
ton, a novel comedy act done by Helen Wagner and Rose Peddicord, dis-
guised as the old gray mare, some popular melodies by our songbird, Anne
Broadbent, a song and saxaphone solo by our "maestroes of melody," Melvin
Kirkman and Walter lsensee, a novel and different "Book of Nursery Rhymes,"
the Girls' Glee club, ably assisted by prominent seventh, eighth,
and ninth graders, a "sweet and hot" popular ditty gayly sung by Margie Pren
tice, the melodious Boys' Glee club in an amusing minstrel act, those two little
iitterbugs, June Arnold and Irene Smith, who sang and rated three encores
and a hilarious skit promoted by La Verne Weisel, Wilbur Jensen and other
H i -Y boys.
Other numbers on the program included several tap dances by Bgty Ragland
Patty Fix, Betty Higgins, and Georgianna Hedges, a current song by swing
ster de luxe" Colleen Watson, a charming combination soft shoe and tap dance
by Mary Martha Morgan, a beautiful aria, "ltalian Street Song by Nina
Johnson. Pat Atwood proved her musical accomplishments by a difficult piano
solo. Returning from her success of last year, Barbara Greenwood executed a
complicated acrobatic dance, those musically inclined guitarists, Mickey Hem
bree, Richard Hembree, Donald Wilson, and Elwood Case enraptured the list
eners with melodies from Hawaii, and the ever-popular dance band set hands to
clapping and feet to twitching with many popular swing numbers

The popular Easter bunny made an unexpected visit to the annual eighth
grade girls' party Thursday, March 30, in the lounge of the girls' gym. Begin-
ning at 3.30, the girls had an hour of fun, playing games and dancing.
The gym was decorated in typical Easter fashion with charming, green and
yellow appointments, and refreshments of cookies and punch were served.
An original holiday program was prepared under the direction of Shannon
Jones, who was appointed by Helen Pendleton. Those taking part were Betty
Swift, Neiva Butler, Louise Sandoz, Donna Arrants, Nadine Doran, Jean Miller,
Elsie Tatum, Ruth Tuttle, and Salonge Barr,
The day when the carnival-goers heralded the beauteous May queen and her
attractive attendants at the carnival arrived at long last on May S amid a burst
of fanfare and festivity.
Shattering tradition, the identity of her highness, the queen, had already been
revealed. By popular vote, Ann Cooney was chosen to the honored position. Ac-
companying her in the processional were sixteen attendants, the girls being
those with the highest merit record in the tenth grade.
Instead of the usual May festivities, the entertainment was in the form of a
carnival held from 2:30 until 6:00. Prominent V. J. H. organizations sponsored
the concessions which made up the carnival.
The attendants did a special dance, arranged by Miss Tarnblyn. Each girl was
beautifully arrayed in a spring formal of lovely, pastel colors. Attendants were
Maxine Smith, Jackie Herring, Mary Tony, Jean Ann Weir, Naomi Nakaya, Jean
Hinsdale, Helen Pendleton, Grace Moore, Shirley Wells, Ann Broadbent, Helen
Alexakis, Dorothy Stein, Arles Papstein, Yvonne Poole, Norma Dahlgren and

Beginning the annual G. A. A. spread, a hockey game was played betwc ft
the ninth and tenth graders that showed the elders victorious followed by th
spread in the junior-high cafeteria in January.
Under the direction of Georgiana Hedges and Betty Cook, a program skill
fully performed, was given which consisted of two skits, musical numbers
an interesting reading, and a classic by the girls' sextette.
Secorra Torres made the decorations for the table, which consisted of pipe
cleaners representative to the last detail of a hockey team.
The next G. A. A. affair was a banquet in May and was the same type
affair. lt was held in honor of the baseball games between the seventh and
eighth grades and another between the ninth and tenth graders.
The appointments were arranged to portray the eventful basball season and
were done by a committee appointed by Betty Cook, vice-president

The I939 Mariners' varsity football squad had a very good season, winning five,
losing two, and tying one game, With only three lettermen, Garcia, Hitson, and
Rolls, remaining, the team started off slowly, tied by Ojai and losing to Santa
Maria. After learning the new system and plays put out by head Coach Warren
S. Taylor and assistant coach, Jimmy Coultas, the team improved in every game.
They won two games from Oxnard, lost one to Taft, won from Moorpark, and
climaxed the season by beating Santa Barbara twice, something that has not
been done in seven years.
The team was led by hard-hitting Captain Ernie Rolls, ably assisted by Garcia
and Hitson in the backfield and Smith, lmmel, and Reed in the line.
Prospects are bright for another good team next year with six returning letter-

At the time "The Log" went to press, Coach Wood Glover's Ventura junior
high baseball team had only two victories and two defeats on record.
The first game of the season was lost to the hard-hitting Oxnard varsity 6-3,
but in a bitter return game, our determined boys won with a ll-4 score. The
third game of the season, also won, was played against Simi and ended with a
6-2 score after a hard-fought game. The most recent game was against
Santa Paula and finally ended in a 6-7 defeat for Ventura, after an extra inning.
A great deal is expected of Quentin Doran and Bill Hitson, first string pitch-
ers. The baseball schedule included games with Moorpark, Nordhoff, Simi, and
Offering an excellent opportunity to students not able to make the school
teams, this year's intramurals, under the direction of the coaches, had play-offs
for every maior sport except track.
All the boys in the school were divided into four divisions, the Bears, Trojans,
Indians, and Bruins. .
At the beginning of the year, Coach Taylor promptly commenced the football
play-offs, and, at the end of the season, when the final scores were summed,
the Indians were the football winners.
In the basketball play-offs, after a lengthy season of hard playing, the Troians
came through with flying colors. ln the volley-ball tournaments, the Indians
came out on top, through keen competition.
