I need to know the best way to solve attic venting problems on a 1-1/2 story, gable-roofed house.

I have a 1929 house with gable-end half-moon vents. There are no soffit vents and there is no room to install vent troughs at the eaves, since the roof joists are 2x4s. The house originally had wood shingles nailed to spaced roof boards which allowed the roof to breathe. It has since been decked over with plywood and asphalt shingles. Very little air movement has led to extensive mold growth on the roof decking now. What are my options?
