There's one who shares our hopes and fears,
. To whom we go in joy and tears.
He's always there to be our friend,
Advise, and to our needs attend.
Through ups and downs our class has gone,
And now at last our task is done.
To Junior High we bid adieu,
And to our friendly teachers, too.
Through life we'll take the gain we've made,
And for our work we'll feel repaid.
To Mr. Porter, our dear friend,
Some message kind we wish to send
' And so to show affection true
,Our book we dedicate to you.

The Dana Office was the most active place in the school.
All A9 pupils were acquainted with some part of the office
staff. The members of this staff were, Mr. Roy Porter, prin-
cipalg Miss Bea Whittlesey, girls' vice-principal, and Mr. Cedric
Stannard, boys' vice'-principalgn Mrs. Lucile Strawn and Miss
Elizabeth Repetschnig, counselors and guides for the Dana boys
and girlsg Mr. Ernest Steele, the attendance teacher, who with
the help of Mrs. Berthalngmire, took care of the absence, tardi-
ness and truancyg Miss Margaret Pederson, theqbook clerk g and
Miss Elizabeth Pickles, Mr, Porter's private secretary. V
The office force oversaw the activities of the school and
it was partly to them that the A9 class owed the credit for so
many successful activities undertaken at Dana.

NINTI-I GRADE DRAMATICS
Though Dana Junior High was young in years, it had be-
come experienced in dramatic productions before the graduation
of "its first class.
"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.

As a crystal gazer sits and peers into his glass, so is one of
the members of the Class of Winter 1930 gazing into his and
seeing into the future fifteen years hence. 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
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.
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! '

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.
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. '
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.
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.
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.

The Boys' Glee Club was composed of fifteen boys. They
have sung for assemblies and P.-T. A. programs. Once a week
they have programs for their own amusement. The president
is Robert San Joseg vice-president, Vincent Jorgenseng secre-
tary, Toni Trani.
The Girls' Glee Club has twenty-six members. President,
Virginia McDonaldg vice-president, Ellen McMurtrieg secre-
tary, Wanona Meeg librarian, Nona Putta. The Girls' Glee Club
staged a program called "Gypsy Trail." They were all in the
gypsy costumes. The Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs staged an
operetta called, "Christmas VVith the Old Woman Who Lived
in the Shoe."
' The orchestra has twenty-six boys and girls. 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.
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.
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
The school has a total of thirty-eight classrooms and shops.
Entirelydetached from the main building are six classroom
As a whole, Dana presents a pleasing appearance. As the
school song says, "Dana surely looks good to me."
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-
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.
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. New members added to the staff have been Mrs.
Marguerite Suiter, physical education teacher, in September
19283 and Mrs. Winifred Hight, corrective physical education
teacher, in February 1929.
Seasonal sports at Dana were hit pin baseball, volley ball,
basket ball, and indoor baseball. Archery was reserved for the
corrective department. Every girl in each class was chosen on
a team, and scheduled games were played. The period winners
then competed for school championship.
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.

Ball team, the school champions last semester: Captain Niga
Kovalovsky, Margaret Martinez, Esther Selin, Lucille Costa,
Hope Wilson, Ruth Sanchez, Thelma Wheelwright, Frances
Luna, Taimie Higgs, Gwendolyn Stapley, Lucille Malone, and
Martha Espinosa. ,

' 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.
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
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.
The second semester was indoor season. There were many
practice games. The school championship was won by Home-
room Eleven of class C. In class D the championship was won by
Homeroom Fourteen. Class E was won by Fifteen, and class F
by 176. Homeroom Eleven won three school championships
and Homeroom Fourteen won three class D championships.

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.
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.

There are secrets in the air,
I know, because I feel them there.
The Woodland folk are running to and fro,
The flowers their sweet faces want to show.
I know I could have guessed,
For there was Mr. Robin in his nestg
The merry brook was running along
Singing its bubbling, gurgling song.
I heard an echo somewhere sing
The glad tidings, "This is spring."
I felt it come so near to me
But still I wondered "What could it be ?"

THE LITTLE MINISTER
Author: J. M. 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. '
