Perhaps the administrator best-known to the stu-
dent body is Mrs. Ada P. Burke, dean of student activ-
ities. Born in Superior, Wisconsin, Mrs. Burke received
her B.E. degree from Wisconsin State College at Eau
Claire and M.A. degree from State University of Iowa,
and did graduate work at the universities of Wisconsin
Before becoming Ventura College's dean of student gi
activities, and dean of women, Mrs. Burke served as 4-3
dean of women at Boise, Idaho, Junior College for '
fifteen years. L
Her experience is varied, with degrees in English I-:L-an
and education, she has been a counselor and adviser
to drama groups, school newspapers, and various clubs
and social activities. - 112
As dean of women, her rather large job is "to care i.L1,f:'
for the welfare of women studentsf' in this capacity she HH'
sponsors and advises the Associated Women Students,
an organization which claims as a member every E-.nil
woman A.S. card holder attending VC. .
As dean of student activities, she advises the As- 1-W
sociated Students' Board and counsels its officers,
coordinates VC social activities, and chairs the Student ,Q
Activities Council. Wav
During her ten years as dean of women and dean ad-:Ld
of student activities at VC, Mrs. Burke has been in-
valuable in her service to the school, her counsel to
students, and her position as unofficial hostess for ,
Ventura College. 1
Her concern for the students of Ventura College
and the help and understanding she has unselfishly
given to them makes her a favorite with students, :L
faculty, and her fellow administrators. ' '
To Mrs. Ada P. Burke, on this, the anniversary of ...,
her tenth year of service to Ventura College, we dedi- -'

1965-66 has been another year when a strong
faculty and a quality student body have combined
to produce an excellent teaching-learning climate.
It is to be hoped individual students will have bene-
fited personally from the resultant opportunities.
The year has also been rewarding in a wide
range of student activities. May the reader find in
these pages of La Revista highlights which will
recall both fun and friends.
College life is a complex of many growth ex-
periences. It is the hope and aim of college author-
ities that all students may complete an academic
year with clearer purpose and increased knowledge
plus the motivation to make the most of both.

A winning team, football or bas-

making a successful recipe of
"school spirit." One of the basic
factors is a spirited pep squad of
college cheerleaders and song-
leaders. And this year, VC not only
had a Winning team, but a good pep
squad. Although there was no head
cheerleader, the team "boosters"
united and performed Well for the
sports audience. The many hours
they spent practicing for games
and rallies were trying, but the ef-
fort resulted in a good performance.
Without their spark, game attend-
ance and school spirit would not
have been at an all time high.

"Tis the season to be jolly" seemed to be
the theme of the Christmas season on the
Ventura College campus this year. The ac-
tivities began with the annual AWS Back-
wards Dance, entitled "Candy Cane Fantasy,"
where David Metcalf was crowned the "Man
of the Evening." Wreaths were made and
placed on the faculty doorsg "Season's Greet-
ings" was set up by Circle Kg and the Mitchell
Boys Choir came to sing as they have before
during the Christmas season. The A.S. spon-
sored Wassail livened up the campus crowd
when George Schmid, AMS president, dis-
guised himself as Santa Claus. The high-
light of the activities Was the Christmas
Ball, "Silver Bells," held during the holidays.
The event highlighting the month of April
is the annual Ventura College Talent Show, held
in the Theater. Usually about a two-hour show,
the program is composed of VC students who
compete for the "best performern trophy.
Last year's show included 18 acts ranging
from a dramatic reading of "Medea" to a nimble-
fingered magician. Master of ceremonies Ken
Kopec presented the first-prize trophy to Caro-
lina Cruz, whose vocal rendition of "Moon Riveri'
Won the judges' applause.
"Top hat, white tie, and tails."
"That's what you get for going to the same men's store!
This year's club and A.S. officers found
themselves engulfed in conferences. Whether
near or far, delegates found themselves piling
into the district station Wagons and heading
for parts unknown.

What else can be said about Ventura
College's outstanding football season?
It already is a well known fact that
the Pirates turned in their best grid cam-
paign since 1951 by posting an 8:2
record. Also, that the Pirates won the
Western States Conference crown, the
first conference title won by VC since
1937. And to cap it all off, the Pirates
were invited to the 13th annual Elks Bowl
in San Bernardino.
But more important, a new winning
tradition and more enthused spirit has
been produced by the Pirates' second suc-
cessful season in a row. To attract top foot-
ball material, a college needs a solid foun-
dation. And if this season's VC squad ac-
complished anything, it was making the
college's football program something to
be respected instead of joke about, as had
been the case in the not too distant past.
For those vital reasons, this season's
team will be long remembered in years to

MEETING OF MINDS-Pirate halfback Jim Russell C211 lowers his
shoulder in anticipation of a head-on tackle by an LACC defender
after picking up a first down.
It's obvious that a team does-
n't compile an 8-2 record
without having a reliable of-
fense, and the Pirates had one
of the most explosive around.
In 10 games, the VC offensive
unit averaged 27.6 points per
game. The Pirates gained al-
most twice as many yards on
the ground and air combined
than their opponents, chalk-
ing up 3,727 yards to 1,992.
The nucleus of the Ventura
attack was the running game.
On the ground, the Pirates
gained 2,183 yards with half-
back Jim Russell leading the
pack with 665 yards. Full-
back Mike Edge, who was
snubbed on the all-conference
first team, captured the WSC
scoring crown with 62 points.
Quarterback Chuck Williams
Won the passing crown for the
second straight year with

walk the plank during the course of a game. Here, co-captain Dick

UP IN THE AIR-A wayward LACC pass is intercepted by Dick Weber 1603
just before it reaches two hopeful receivers. Pirate defensive halfback Gary
Berthe1son11 13 lends a helping hand.
Besides being blessed with a
potent offense, the Pirates this
season had one of the top defenses
in the conference. The VC defensive
unit allowed the oppositions' of-
fense only 1 1 1 points in 10 contests
for a stingy 1 1.1 average per game.
The defense, led by Onstot, Weber,
Ortega, Henke, Gaston, Clevenger,
Cuthbert, Worley, Strait and many
more, held the opposing offenses
to under 200 yards net per game.
Although the opposition gained
1,'7'71 yards on the ground, the
Pirates threw the opposing runners
for a loss of 492 yards. Praise is in
order for line coach Bob Long as

sand words and clearly tells the story as this picture does of the
Santa Barbara encounter which the Pirates easily captured by a 48-6
Glendale 21, Ventura 0

their only regular season loss with
three second-half touchdowns after

feeling sorry for themselves follow-
ing the Glendale setback, and held
Compton to a net 60 yards on the
ground and through the air . . .
Williams completed 13 aerials out
of 22 throws for 179 yards and
three six-pointers . . . Dunn gained
AGONY IN VICTORY-Linebacker Jim Cuthbert C533 re-
ceives some verbal comfort from teammate Steve Hart

Ventura 21, Pierce 0
Pierce stopped the potent Pirate
offense for three quarters, but Ven-

quarter TDs . . . Williams hit 11 of
22 passes for 1'7O yards . . . Russell
rolled up 108 yards in 18 carries,
while Edge chalked up 97 yards in
same number of totes.

Ken Duncan gathered in a 54-yard
scoring toss from Williams to get
VC back into the contest . . . The

578 yards in 96 carries.
SHARP 'EDGE'-Fullback Mike Edge C333 gets a key block
from center Terry Cooney C523 for enough running room for
a first down in the Santa Barbara contest. Cooney's blocking
was a maj or factor in the Pirates' ground attack.
Ventura 33, Pasadena 15
With help from Pierce, the Pirates
moved into a tie for the WSC lead

tackle as Bob Ortega C773 and Tony Roberts cover the action.
Buc Bowl Debut
Santa Ana 18, Ventura 16
VC ended its great season on a some-
what sour note as Santa Ana thwarted a
last-minute Pirate comeback . . . The Pi-
rates didn't play one of their better
games, but almost pulled it out of the fire
. . . Flanker Ken Duncan wound up with
1 1 7 yards on nine receptions.
NO PROTECTION-Although the Pirates' pass protection for
Williams was ample all season long, in the Elks Bowl game Santa

TRACK TE OPENS 1966 SEASON
At the beginning of this year's track season,
coaches, players, and fans alike were predicting
a year for record-breaking. George Gibbs, who
held the mile mark, was expected to break it
himself, along with his two-mile mark. , Y
Others who were expected to better individ-
ual marks included Fred Von Schrader in the
440 and Tom Dullarn in the pole Vault. In the
relay division, the best time in the 440 was ex-
pected to change more than once, and the spring
medley mark was also destined to fall.
Spikers Dullam, Gibbs, and Von Schrader
appeared destined for the state final, and the
team should finish the season high in the
league standings, with a good win-loss record.
