WHAT IS A SCHOOL FOR THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED?
we, the students of Valley Branch, have found that many people have
mistaken ideas of our school. Toward the end of last semester, three
student reporters from a large neighboring high school visited us here
at Valley Branch. They plied us with questions which surprised and even
startled us. They wanted to know: nwhat subjects do you take? Do you
live here at school? How do you get back and forth to school? what
days do you go to school? What are your hours? Do you get vacations
and holidays? Do you get report cards?n
We did our best to give them a clear idea of our high school. We
pointed out that a high school for the physically handicapped is not
very different from any other high school. What makes us appear differ-
ent is the fact that many of us are on crutches, in wheelchairs, or in
braces. In addition, our school building also had to be changed some-
what to meet the needs of the physically handicapped. Halls should be
wide so that two wheelchairs can pass each other. Doors should be wider
than standard, so that a wheelchair can go through. Lockers must be ac-
cessible. Ramps take the place of steps at entrances and exits. Floors
should not be slippery for people on crutches. To board the bus, we
have loading platforms. Our fire drills have to be particularly well
organized, so that everyone is able to get out of the building in case
of an emergency.
Although we students may have our physical limitations, our school
is very much like any other high school in the Los Angeles City High
School District. Our subjects are the same. Our textbooks are the
same. We go to school five days a week. We ave six periods a day and
also have exactly the same holidays and vacations as other schools.
The question asking if we lived here at school brought snickers and
winks across the room. We told them that we go back and forth to school
in a Hli'l ole yellow school busn. We also have homework and are sup-
posed to study two or three hours every night, although so etimes when
there is a good television program, we try to
homework. Then when the tests come along, we
feeling that we should have done our homework
even worse when we see the tell-tale m rks on
ly lined paper called a report card. We then
and promises that we'll do much better on the
cut a few corners off the
have the sudden strange
and studied harder. It is
a little piece of special-
make very good resolutions
next report card. Then
just like other students, some keep the promises and others break them.
In Valley Branch our student body is composed of students with as
many different ideals and ambitions as you would find in any other high
school student group. Several of us are taking the courses that are re-
quired for college entrance. One of our students is planning a career
as an M.D. and another wants to become a medical research librarian.
One intends to become a research lawyer. Others want to be teachers.
Some plan to go into the fields of agriculture, commercial art or
engineering. Some of the girls plan to become housewives.
A number of our students belong to the California Scholarship
Federation. Some of us have to work harder than others to master our
courses, because we often miss several weeks or even months during a
school year. Then we have to make up all the work we have missed.
This is especially necessary for pupils who belong to the scholarship
society and must keep a high grade average.
Work is only a part of the curriculum of a high school for the
handicapped. Sports are also an important factor. The physically
handicapped high school students need exercise like any other teen-
agers. However, we are restricted to less strenuous sports like ping
pong, croquet, shuffleboard, horse shoes, and other similar games. We
also have plays, parties and other school activities.
We are happy that we do have the opportunity to work and play to-
gether. We are working diligently towards the goal of becoming help-
ful and useful citizens. Some great men who are well known in public
life today are physically handicapped. We want more than anything to
have the opportunity to prove our worth and usefulness, not only to
ourselves, but also to our community and to our country.

THE HISTORY OF HIGH SCHOOL FOR TH
By sianey Fink
The beginning of public schools in the United States was in the
eighteenth century, but the public schools for the handicapped were not
started until the late nineteenth and the first part of the twentieth
centuries. The first public school classes for the physically handi-
capped were actually started in Chicago between 1899 and 1900. The
first public school of this type was the Massachusetts Hospital School,
founded in l9Ok. The purpose of this school is stated in the following
quotation from the Journal for Exceptional Children, May 1952. HThe
object of the hospital school is to make every student an independent
self-supporting citizen--a taxpayer and not a tax recipientn.
Public school classes for the handicapped began in Los Angeles in
1920 at the Orthopaedic Hospital under the supervision of Mrs. Margaret
Sullivan Bonadiman. She was the only teacher for five years until 1925,
when the Board of Education employed one full-time and two part-time
teachers. In 1927, they moved to the house north of the hospital. Four
large rooms on the first floor were used for class rooms. The four
large rooms got over-crowded in a few years, and then in 1929, they
moved to the Academic Building of the Jefferson High School.
The demand for a high school for the physically handicapped grew
until 1933 when the Dr. Joseph Pomeroy Widney High School was built on
South Grand Avenue. Widney offers social and group activities and an
academic course for those who expect to go to college, a non-academic
course for those who are not interested in college, a non-vocational
course, and majors in general commercial subjects or industrial arts.
There are six full-time and two part-time teachers, six class rooms, a
library which is also used as a class room. The library has a stage
and is often used as an auditorium. 9
The enrollment at Widney has increased steadily until it reached
ninety-five. By this time the need for another high school began to be
felt. Furthermore, many physically handicapped students lived in the
San Fernando Valley, and had to travel many hours on busses to and from
school. Others were not able to attend at all.
' On November lO, 1952, the Valley Branch of Widney High School was
opened on the North Hollywood High School campus. It is located in the
home economics practice house which had been leased as a temporary site
for the new school. Valley Branch now has two teachers full-time, and
one part-time. The enrollment fluctuates between twenty-five and thirty
five students. Plans and site for a new and adequate building are now
in progress for the school.

Dag rXAoq.5A' pQfl'iCiCl 6 Bonbms
By Patricia Erickson
On my twelfth birthday, I was given a trio of Jungle Fowl Bantams
Ccom on stock, from which I sold hatching eggs. I received five
cents per egg and thirty-five cents for little bantam chicks. At the
end of two years I had saved twenty dollars in net profit from my
original bantams. In 1950, Dad took me to the San Fernando Valley
Fair and got me interested in show stock bantams. He said it would
not cost any more to feed and care for show stock than it did for the
common stock. He also told me my biggest expense would be in purchas-
ing my foundation stock. However, in time the returns from this stock
would be considerably more than I had been receiving in the past with
my present stock. Therefore, I took fifteen dollars from my savings
and purchased a trio of Mille Fleur Bearded Bantams.
The Mille Fleur Bearded Bantams, an ornamental variety, origina-
ted in Asia from a pair of one-time long-tailed Yokahama and an impor-
ted white Burmese bantam. In 1887, the offspring from this pair were
sold into Germany where they were known under the name of Gold Porce-
lains. They were very popular in Germany, England and Belgium. The
name Mille Fleur CThousand Flowersl was adopted by the Belgian Spe-
cialty Club. They were introduced to the United States in 1911 and
were admitted to the standard breed in l9lh. They have proven to be
a very popular addition to the bantam fanciers.
From my first trio of Mille Fleur Bearded Bantams, I have builti
my flock to approximately seven dozen show stock birds. In addition,
I now have also two other breeds of show stock bantams, the Black
Rosecombs and the Buff Cochins. The Black Rosecombs appeared in Eng-
land in the middle of the l800's. They are a distinctly proud and
stylish type, and are known as the aristocrats of the bantam world.
The Buff Cochins have long been a favorite breed in North America, due
chiefly to their gentle dispositions. My Buff Cochin hen won first
prize at the San Fernando Valley Fair in 1953. Altogether, I have won
twenty-one ribbons in showing my bantams in the San Fernando Valley
and Los Angeles County Fairs.
I LET SPRING IN
I opened the door to let spring in
And breathe the soft, warm air,
I saw a blue bird on the wing
And green things everywhere.
The air was filled with fragrance sweet
Of flowers and fresh-turned sodg
I opened the door to let spring in
And opened my heart to God.
fThis poem was awarded second prize in a poetry contest spon
sored by the Los Angeles United Cerebral Palsy Assoclatlon in April,
PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED STUDENT
M MBER OF IWWA
Thomas J. Cum ins is a graduate of Widney High School. Tom has
been writing for the International Wrestling Writers Association. In
one of his articles in the magazine, Wrestling As You Like It, he was
supposed to cover a certain match. He covered part of the match and
then explained why he saw only part of this particular wrestling match.
nThe reason I saw only part of this match was that I was attending
a graduation ceremony. This was a very special graduation, and if
you'll excuse a diversion from wrestling on my part, I'd like to tell
you why it was special. The graduates were the Class of Winter, '5h,
Dr. Joseph Pomeroy Widney High School, in Los Angeles. What made it
unusual, is that every one of the graduates had a physical disability
of some sort. This is natural, since Widney High School is especially
for students with physical handicaps, who are unable to attend one of
the regular high schools in the city. I believe it is the only public
high school of its kind in the United States, operated as a part of a
city school system.
A Special Courage
HMost of you see courage of one kind or another almost every night
in a wrestling ring, but the special kind of courage required of these
boys and girls must be seen to be believed. Thirteen were in attend-
ance for the graduationg of these, three were able to walk only with
aid of crutches, three were confined to wheelchairs, the rest were able
to walk only with difficulty. Two were afflicted with the dreaded
spastic paralysis, which made every move a major project. Yet these
three girls and ten boys pursued their educations to the fullest extent,
overcoming disadvantages sufficient to crush the average person, doing
so with honors.
HNone of the graduates of the Class of '5h at Widney High will
ever be able to wrestleg most of them will consider it a monumental
triumph if they can eventually lead nearly normal lives and earn their
way in the world. Yet they did not seek charity or beg public sym-
pathyg they wanted only the chance to make themselves worth while cit-
izens. This graduation was the culmination of their struggle to do
that, and to see that was worth missing any wrestling match. For these
kids have won the greatest wrestling match there isg the contest against
nwhat was my particular interest in the graduates of Widney High?
Well, you see, I was one of the thirteen who were on the platform to
receive their diplomas on Wednesday night, and I will always be proud
of the achievements of my classmates of the Class of Winter, '5k.n

REMEM ER WHEN
the furnace wouldn't work, and we nearly froze on Monday morn-
Wilma set the record by being the first one to fall flat on her
back in the assembly room?
Mrs. Earle couldn't find her red purse?
Bill Conklin teased the girls by rolling his eyes?
Armen made his annual flying leap out of his wheelchair to play
marbles on the floor?
Mrs. Norbury's wolfhound had twelve pups?
all the girls swooned over Frank as Sergeant-at-Arms?
the floors were very slippery and everyone was afraid of falling?
one of the bathroom doors wasn't wide enough for wheelchairs?
Danny was swooning over Diana and showed his affection by con-
stantly fighting with her?
Mrs. Smith changed her name to Mrs. Phillips?
Joe had a conniption fit about a few items in the Hi-Lites?
Gary Watson nicknamed Georgia NDark Eyesn?
how Helen stamped her feet when she was mad?
the Senior English class suddenly found themselves back in the
seventeenth century? They were all arguing with Mrs. Norbury that
the word nmischievousn was Hmischieviousu and not umischievous.n
Finally the dictionary settled the argument by stating that their
form of the word had not been used since 1700!
we celebrated the HBon Voyagen party for the graduating Seniors?
