"Sauce for the Goslingsf' was a modern play staged by Miss Foster's dramatic class. The scene was in a living room. A football star came to visit the home and the young daughter fell in love with him. Her grandmother wished to prevent her childrens' use of slang. She finally succeeded, and her method kept the audience in an uproar from beginning to end. A colorful operetta, "Love Pirates of Hawaii," was staged last term by the girls' and boys' glee clubs. The scene was in a private school for girls in Hawaii. The leads were taken by Ellen McMurtrie, Eric Johnson, Jean Curry, and Tony Trani during the afternoon, while Mary Scarcello, Tony Trani, Helen Joy McNerney and Jimmy Snyder performed during the eve- ning. Both performances were supported by a beautiful chorus of more than fifty Hawaiian maidens and pirates. One of the most difficult productions attempted was "Dick- ens' Christmas Carol," which has been mentioned in a class re- port. Among the leads were Walter Cadien, Scroogeg Walter Winter, Bob Cratchettg Doris Johansen, Mrs. Cratchettg Doris Helen Rockwell, young Bob, Tommy Hentila, Fezziwig. This play was directed by Miss Mable H. Miller, now Mrs. Woodard. The dramatic climax for the winter class of '30 was the presentation graduation week of Booth Tarkington's, "Seven- teen," A double cast under the direction of Miss Agnes Foster creditably interpreted this production. 26 Wa ,J .4 wana fling Staff Top row: William Deans, reporter, Yube Ostoich, reporterg Jess Brown, reporterg Fack Frishman, joke editorg Jack Baker, editor-in-chief.

QQ The staff of the "Log" was composed of officers and cer- tain members of the graduating class chosen by the class of- ficers the fore part of December, 1929. The staff chose as their advisor Miss Mabel H. Miller, now Mrs. Woodard. fWe hope you will derive from the reading of the "Dana Log" the same pleasure we found in the compiling of it.5 27 1 Glass Tlliliill The last will and testament of the Most Honorable and dis- tinguished A9 class, Winter '30, of Richard Henry Dana Junior High School: Q We, the A9 class, do give and bequeath to the most humble and expectant lower classes: First: We, with the utmost pleasure, give to the lower classes our good reputation.

Upon the surface of this glass appears the south poleg why, who is that flying in an airplane with his bride at his side? It looks like Lawrence Ley, and sure enough it is. I always thought that he would do some foolish stunt like that-get married, and try to run away from home. But he and his bride, Cby the way, she was Wanona Balyl, seem to be quite happy and expect to see where Byrd lived in a few days. Probably some are wondering where Law- rence picked up his bride. She was found playing the piano in the San Pedro Orpheum. . Here is Vincent Jorgensen. He is still working for the laun- dry and seems to be enjoying life with his wife, who was Inge- borg Nilsen. Their supper consists of milk, puffed wheat, corn- flakes, etc. You know she was a better singer than a cook. Poor Richard Ramsey is still going his rounds as a stamp collector and was found digging out some stamps in the fog, but Officer Walter Cadien wasn't a policeman for nothingg he grabbed him with his strong right arm and threw him'into the wagon. When he arrived at the jail, he found Tommy Hentila playing his violin for the prisoners. This was his charity work to drown his sorrow because his wife, Mary Mellusi, deserted him. The new bank is opened at Eleventh and Gaffey Streets with Teddy Rafalovich as cashier. He was so used to sitting around, you know! I see him reading a complaint filed by jan- itor Carl Tempe saying that ,better mops and more soap are needed. Jack Tuerk is watchman of the bank funds, with his bed upon the president's desk. The grand triumvirate, Florence Meehan, Grace Hagenow, and Doris Jensen, are now advertising agents for the Worth- more Real Estate Company and are recommending that we all buy lots in "Happy Hollow." I notice that the director of the Hollywood Bowl is intro- duced as Miss Zoi Fahler. CShe won't stay Miss ,long.J Music hath charms. Are you willing to pay 355.00 for a seat to watch the newly-appointed leader of the Philharmonic or- chestra, Robert Hammond? He wields a wicked baton at his assistant, Eric Johnson, whose harmonica is a little out of tune with the fifty harps. 30 ,as 4 Harrison Holton, Jack Frishman, Jess Brown, Fred Castag- nola, and Yube Ostoich have just completed a correspondence course in house moving and are now ready to move anything from bungalow 176 to the new Federal Building on the Plaza. Here's more power to them! ' Three graduate nurses may be seen attending to the needs of those injured on the airships operated by Mitchell and Lane Airways Company. These angels of mercy are Marie Forsstrom, Ruth Pugh, and Marjorie Carr. Three of our greatest scholars thought their brains could be used for something better than remodeling schools, so they decided to work in a fish cannery that has named its three boats after them, Josephine Huff, Marybelle O'Dea, and Alice Robertson. . It will interest you to know that Doris Rockwell is now play- ing the part of a boy in "The Kid's Home." Don't forget to see itg you will also recognize William Bullock playing the part of a colored porter. The greatest dancer in this show is Miss Eliza- beth Baly, who is a rival of the Russian Pavlowa. The farmer in the play, you will notice, is Billy Melville. We seem to be most fortunate because in the President's cabinet I see two of the Winter Class of 19303 one, Dennis Eco- nomedes, who holds the office of Secretary of the Bureau for the Care of Wild Animals, while the other, Evan Williams, is Secre- tary of Education. John Pollock has accepted the position as President of Stan- ford University. In his inaugural address these words were broadcast from the great station DANA: "I accept this honor, knowing that knowledge is power. I firmly believe in a higher education for the boys and girls of this great continent." Marjorie Belasco now has complete charge of the Belasco transfer company with offices in every large city in the world. Alice Sawyer is in charge of the office in Rome, and Erma Wal- Strom is in charge of the office in Hong Kong. They have a re- union every year in Watts. The Red Stack Company is fortunate in having as its senior pilot, Norman Kelly, who navigates the well-known skiff, "Penurious." He sometimes has Jack Baker to assist him. And here I see a circus. The funniest clown of all is none other than Ord Shoults. You mustn't miss seeing the monkey trainer, Carl Metzger, who claims to have "the missing link." The greatest finger waver on the West Coast, Walter Win- ter, has opened a beauty shop in the basement of the city hall. Audrey Wilson is queen in a one-room country school house. She insists that every child pattern himself after the "Spirit of Dana." 1 I The crystal is now becoming so cloudy I can see only the words, "Steer a straight course," Winter Class of 1930. W 31 - ,Q l Cltummittees A9 CLASS COMMITTEES The Winter Class of 1930 chose several live committees to plan and carry out various phases of the class activities. These committees were the Entertainment Committeeg the Party Com- mittee, the Class Gift Committee, the Graduation Program Com- mittee, and the Dana Log Staff. ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE This Committee consisted of Marjorie Belasco, Chairmang Mildred Parker, Alice Sawyer, Roy Ritche, and Vincent Jorgen- sen. The duties of this committee were to plan some sort of entertainment each week for the A9's. These entertainments were enjoyed by all. ' PARTY 'COMMITTEE The party committee, under the supervision of Mrs. Genetha Alexander, prepared a very delightful party that was held on Wednesday afternoon of graduation week. A program of games, and dancing furnished the entertainment for the after- noon. The committee consisted of Eric Johnson, chairmang Erma Walstrom, Mildred Garvin, John Pollock, and Jack Tuerk. GIFT COMMITTEE The committee which was to plan the class gift was spon- sored by Mr. Clarence Halfpenny. The officers of the class served on this committee. The class gift had not been fully decided upon when this book went to the press but it was rumored that it might be an evergreen tree. GRADUATION COMMITTEE This committee met with Mr. Porter and Miss Whittlesey to discuss the problems of graduation. The songs and other numbers were chosen by this committee. The committee de- cided that the graduation apparel should be uniform black and white. The committee consisted of the officers of the class- William Deans, Walter Cadien, Yube Ostoich, and Wanona Baly-and three additional class members, Elizabeth Baly, Wini- fred Matalich, and Leona Phebus.

Tommy Hen-' tila is acting concert master. The orchestra is made up of seven violins, two flutes, piano, three trumpets, trombone, three saxo- phones, five clarinets, and a drum set. 35 ' A-hd-Alla-o-s , l 4 1 l Quhitnrium The auditorium and stage of the Dana Junior High is con- sidered one of the most beautiful and perfectly equipped in the city school system. Artistically it is a joy forever with its dig- nified spaciousness, its gracious curve of balcony, its beautiful proportion of tall windows, richly hung with a warm red velour. Friezes, frescoes, and medallions in soft related values, carry out in design the marine idea which is emphasized in Dana Junior High. Five beautiful pierced brass chandeliers, using the sea horse as a motif, provide perfect lighting arrangement. The fifty-foot stage is adequately fitted for any ambitious production, it being complete with storage space, working space, and two generous dressing rooms. x . 36 L Qrcahe Someone has said: "At the end of the road there is happi- ness," so it is with Dana. Standing as it does at the end of Fifteenth Street, it presents a striking combination of a Spanish villa and a modern office. As one enters the attractive foyer his attention is attracted to the left wall, by a map of San Pedro Bay District in 1834, done in colored tiles. Directly opposite is a ship, the emblem of the school, also in colored tiles. Three stucco pillarsi of Corinthian design dominate the steps just above the spacious lobby. To the rear of these is the auditorium, which is the center of all social activities. Toward the rear of the building are two arcades of Span- ish architecture, bordering the two patios of lawn and shrubbery. The school has a total of thirty-eight classrooms and shops. Entirelydetached from the main building are six classroom bungalows. As a whole, Dana presents a pleasing appearance. As the school song says, "Dana surely looks good to me." 37 44 iiihrarp The Dana library opened for circulation in March 1928. It is located in the center of the third floor. The artistic interior of light brown fading into soft dark brown on the Walls is beautiful and makes the library atmosphere cheerful and outstanding among those of the Los Angeles district. During these two years, one thousand four hundred vol- umes were accumulatedg beside these, creditable magazines, pamphlets, and picture files were easily reached by any boy or girl. There are many interesting volumes in scientific and me- chanical works and ancient histories, all of which are books that teach instead of merely entertaining. Miss Brilla May Lloyd, the librarian, working With student assistants, endeavored to make the library the center of activity in the school and was justly proud of its progress in this direc- tion. 38 ,ah 4 Qiiafeteria The' Dana Cafeteria is one of the finest in the city school district. It has every convenience for the enjoyment of cook- ing. Mrs. Chadwick supervised the cafeteria, and Miss Lin- denberger superintended the cooking, done by two trained cooks, Mrs. Jensen and Mrs. Evans. The salads, desserts, sand- wiches, and the preparation of the counters were done by the girls' cooking classes each day. The menu was planned before- hand and every effort was made to give a balanced diet to the students. Twelve girls served from five to six hundred students every day. The kitchen crew was a group of ten boys who washed and dried the trays and dishes. An outside counter was maintained. It served hot and cold sandwiches, plate lunches, and drinks for the students who brought their lunches. The faculty had a separate dining room, but were served the same food and in the same manner as the students. ' 39 fs .4 H Qpnrts GIRLS' SPORTS In February, 1928, Richard Henry Dana Junior High School physical education department opened with B7, A7, and B8 classes and one teacher, Miss Adelene Ponti, now Mrs. McCarty.

Seasonal sports at Dana were hit pin baseball, volley ball, basket ball, and indoor baseball. Archery was reserved for the corrective department.

The championship team earned seventy-five points each, di- vision Winner sixty points each. grade winner fifty points each, period winner twenty-five points each, team captains, squad leaders, and monitors each ten points. Points were also earned by gains in nutrition and marked improvement in correctives.

' Volley Ball Volley ball championship for 1929 was won by the A8 Dynamites. Their team work was splendid. The Dana Slicers, B9 students, also showed some peppy work. "We," seventh grade students, won the afternoon championship though they lost to the Dynamites. Hit Pin Baseball Hit pin baseball was played the last five weeks. It is a combination of soccer and baseball. All the girls showed great enthusiasm for this combination. Quick thinking and alertness are a necessity in this sport. 40 A -1 February 1928 After the opening of school, the boys started to play indoor games. There were two leagues, the major and minor. Home- room Eleven won the major league championship. Homeroom Fourteen won the minor league championship. Homeroom Eleven defeated Fourteen in two successive games for the school championship. September 1928 The opening of basketball at Dana sent homerooms through stiff workouts. Practice games were played before the schedule started. Homeroom Eleven won class C championship. Home- room Fourteen won class D championship. The play-off for the school championship was won by Homeroom Eleven. February 1929 The second semester was indoor season. There were many practice games.

Withoiit hav- ing had any practice they entered the league, and took last place. The indoor baseball team also started the league without any practice. They lost the first three games and then rallied winning six straight games. The end of the league found them tied for second place. Their captain says, "If we had had two practice games we would have won the first three league games." This season's volley ball was organized into two teams. These teams were to be seen at noon practicing on the court erected on the stage. The score when this book went to press stood: First team won five, lost oneg second team won one, lost fl? FACULTY WOMEN'S SPORTS Dana Faculty women found time for and enjoyed tennis, volley ball, and indoor baseball. Games of volley ball and base- ball were played with student teams. five. Of the two tennis tournaments held, both victories were won only after playing several close matches. Last semester the faculty women organized themselves into a baseball team and challenged the girls' championship team, The Pedro Sports. The girls, however, proved themselves real champions and defeated the faculty with a good score. The Net-skim-oes and the Biff-a-loes practised after each faculty meeting, hoping to defeat the volley ball championship team. The Dynamite 12's had no easy time winning as may be seen by the close score of 11 to 15.

Barrie The intense love the little minister had for Babbie and for his church are the main themes of the story. I thought Babbie was a gypsy until the end of the story, when I found she was a lady, and this mystery kept me interested until the last page of the book. There were many interesting characters in the story. A very important one was a drunkard, Roy, whom the minister converted and who later saved the minister's life. Other interesting characters were the school teacher who told the story, and the little minister's mother with whom the school teacher was in love. There were several wonderful descriptions in the story, the climax being the flood, which was so real that I felt as though I were going through the experience with the characters. It is a book I would recommend to any ninth grade boy or girl.
