Venting a 70 year old attic?

Here is my question, I have wrapped up everything with my whole house and now I am moving to the attic space.. Man is it HOT and stuffy up there!

My house was built in the 40's and I have no soffit vents, the roofing has been replaced who knows how many times, but no ridge vent The only venting I have is (3) gable end vents (the house is shapped like a "T")

I cant install soffit vents because I have NO roof overhangs on any sides of the building.

What can I do to help vent the roof??
