PRINCIPAL Herself a graduate of the Cor¬ ona schools, as principal of the junior high school for the past thirteen years (we hope she’ll be able to survive another thirteen!) she has seen at first hand the march of time in the educational svstem of the town. Unsparing in giving of herself and her time, always cheerful and smiling, nev¬ er grouchy, she is never too busy to help — the annual staff or any one else. She has mothered the school, helped to establish worthy tradi¬ tions, been a true friend and adviser to students and teachers, a leader in civic affairs. So, for her kindliness, her thoughtfulness, we of the staff dedicate this, our 1938 “March of Time” issue of LA CORONA, to Corona Junior High School’s one and only principal, Miss Letha Raney, D.D. (doubly dear). FACULTY " Tea”, by treat or subscription, has enlivened several meetings of the faculty: R. L. Ambrose, Grace Brooks, Marv Brown, Hubert E. Bynum, Mildred Click, J. Lorin Farmer, E. A. Franklin, Jeanne Griffin, Mary Eliza¬ beth Hancock, Fern Johnson, F. Ray King, Anne Lawson, Raymond L. Mahoney, Elizabeth Marquis, Margaret Mitchell, Letha Raney, Ruth Rawl¬ ings, Frances Raymond, Genevieve Reed, Josephine Rehor, Ralph Rich, Catherine Robinson, Charles Ruth, Hildegarde Sage, Hazel Smith, Katherine Smith, Mina Taw, Sarah Thrasher, Alfreda Webber, Ira L.

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
