IN MEMORIAM uica. james n. i ciiieii, caretaker at Corona Junior High School since 1923, after an illness of several weeks. Born in Clarinda, Iowa, Jan¬ uary 22, 1875, he moved to California in 1915, coming to Corona two years later. He is survived by his wife, Alice E. Patten; three daughters, Rose (Stolt .), Elva (Koch), and Elaine (Kilpatrick) ; two sons, “Ed” and Arno; and several grandchildren, in¬ cluding Phyllis and Betty Stoltz of the junior high. Mr Patten was more than a caretaker for the school. He was a true friend to all who knew him, ever willing to help when he was needed. He set a good example for every one by always keeping busy, and his never-failing cheer- fulnss was an inspiration. If some one broke a bottle of ink, or a locker, Mr. Patten was there with a mop or a screw¬ driver. If a stage-set needed building, his hammer pounded early and late. No service was ever too large or too small for him to do. Despite doctor ' s or¬ ders, on the night of the “flood” he left his sickbed to come over to the school to see if he might be of aid. He leaves us with a happy me life of service and of friendliness. JAMES H. PATTEN: He always had time! a desire to live for ourselves a FOOTPRINTS ON THE SANDS OF TIME I. A Century of Progress II.

A CENTURY OF PROGRESS If we could have lived a hundred years earlier, we should have known that just so long ago, Horace Mann gave to the state of Massa¬ chusetts and so to the United States its first system of free public schools. We would have seen how the people received h i s revolutionary ideas, would have watched its slow but sure march to¬ ward its present standing. One hundred vears ago, onlv the wealthy could go to school. Today over three- fourths of the world is being educated. Fifty years ago, one would have had to spend over thirty dollars a year on books, paper, pencils — or slates and slate-pencils — pens, and ink. Now he fur¬ nishes only notebooks and the extra things he may want. Into the cur iculurn, dur¬ ing this passage of years, have crept such courses as shop, homemaking, glee club, orchestra, physical education . . .a far cry from the old Latin, Greek, and geometry of Horace Mann’s time. All of this should give a small conception of how Father Time has marched onward with the schools. . . ■ . Bearing this idea in mind, when the staff of LA CORONA first met, we picked our theme. Once we got it into our minds, we couldn’t get it out. So we wrote to Time, Inc. and received from Mr. John R. Wood, treasurer, gracious permission to use “The March of Time”, copyrighted though it was. To him we wish to express our heartiest appreciation. We give thanks also to Mr. Lester Houck, our photographer, who gave so generously of his time in helping us present our theme photographically, getting away from the plain straight-line pictures typical of the past. And to Mr. George Blair of the Dependable Printerv and to his staff goes our warm gratitude for their splendid co-operation in working with us to keep abreast of the “march of time”! The staff? Gerald Holtman is editor-in chief and head of the editorial staff: Mary Helen Sanford, Barbara Lincoln, Howard Sullivant, Della Evans, and Marian Glass—secretary and assistant to the editor. Juliet Dupuis heads the art group: Dick Ogden, June Joy, Margaret Rogers, Geneta Lewis, and Alton Lambeth. Dale Fisher is business manager, keeping the books and acting as treasurer. His assistants are Laura Jo Moffett, Texas McKinney, Francis Ganahl, John Kirkland, and Maude Smith — poster-maker. Mr. Mullins has advised the art staff. Miss Mitchell is general adviser. Page Two
