Now we are aware of a shadow that is darkening the bright streets and colorful balconies in our picture, one that is falling across the narrow alleys and frail buildings spelling doom for this little colony of people, for progress has ruled that Chinatown must uproot herself from these surroundings and find another home in this great city. The history of Chinatown is one that contains much sorrow and bloodshed. Most of the early Chinese were lured here by the far-reaching magnetism of gold, and it proved to be the first unhappy factor in their lives in this world. Disillusioned and bedraggled, the pioneers ol Chinatown came to Los Angeles to find some shelter from the unfairness of the new world. The chapters in their history are many and are filled with hardship and sorrow. Emerging from the confusion came Chinatown with its tiny shops and gayly colored houses, a breath of the Orient within our city. lt is to this city that is about to 'fall in the path of progress that we have dedicated our Burr. As a showplace of the East and as an aid to peace and understanding between two great' continents it has Cl-IINATOWN AT OUR DOOR Junior I-ligh School is, more or less, the turning point in our lives. We enter the B7 year still little children, not interested in anything that does not concern ourselves. While here, there is no definite changing point, but it is clear to see that when we leave as A9's we are much more mentally alert, with a broader viewpoint and a readiness to take part in outside activities, Because of this the subject of Chinatown offers many opportunities. All of us are apt to be a little disdainful of any people belonging to another race, We often think that the color of their skin, their habits of living, even their 'ways of speakinghanrl dressing, 'make them inferior to us. We of John Burroughs wish to show that we are not influenced by such petty differences, lt is the interest and character that count, and with the realization that God has made all people equal in I-lis sight, this will become doubly interesting to us. We read our school Annual eagerly, and appreciate the different things it tries to impress upon us. Now, perhaps more than ever before, there is the need for a complete understanding of all nations. lt is not likely that many of us will travel for several years to come. Thus we will not be able, great as our ambitions may be, to make friends with foreign nations as yet. But with Chinatown right at our door, Los Angeles offers many opportunities for us to make 'friends with the Chinese. Soon they will have to move, and we can try to make them feel at home again, as they do now. lt is with this idea in mind that we have tried to interpret Chinatown to the readers of our Burr. no peer. ,ig fig!-QU - l- ,,. - 1- - I

i ' ' . FOREWORD By HARRY CARR Possibly I shall not be here to see it, but . many of the students of the John Burroughs Junior High School will see this country facing toward the East. California will be the front door leading into a new world. The future of Western America lies in the Pacificg it is my firm opin'on that, in another generation, our relations with Ori- ental countries will be vastly more important than the present relations of Arrericn with Europe, A new world is to be built in the countries bordering upon the Pacific. lt is for the boys and girls now growing up to see to it that it is the right kind ofa world, lf this world begins to grow right now in the hearts of the young people of the Pacific Coast, this new civilization of the Pacific waters can be the finest ever known. The firm resolve that we all should make is to try to understand and appreciate our friends of Japanese and Chinese birth and race. The John Burroughs Junior High School is taking an important step in that direction with the publication of this Chinese number. HARRY CARR. Let us make up our minds to go on with this work until there is not a shred of hatred or malice or jealousy left in the Pacific Area. Let us make up our minds to build a new world known for its unselfishness and warm friendships, lt is a fine thing that the students of this school have made arrangements to write letters to students in Japan and China. They are doing a real service to this country and to the cause of humanity. There can be no hatreds or wars where there are complete understandings. A French philosopher said: "To know all is to forgive all."

Under the 5' able direction of Mrs. Hughes our Burr Art Class E has successfully met the task of illustrating our W-E:-I 6331, Burr.

William Smith with his Apablasa Street Balcony and Grant Swanland's Chinese Shrine are some other fine pieces of art, as are also Grant's Pagoda, Betty Black's Elephant, and Virginia Snure's End Piece and Figure Group. Other excellent additions to our Burr are Lita Mae Brooks' Buddha gand Harriet Edelstein's Balcony, not forgetting 'the Majong Blocks of Norma Siegel, the Comic of Jack Poplin, and the Headings by William Smith and Helen Wilmans. Thus has our Burr Art Class accomplished its work this term, suc-A cessiully, and our gratitude is theirs. , J BURR PRINTERS By BERT BRISKIN , . ' Believe it or not, to use the famous-Words of Ripley, we are the only junior high in the city to print our own Anhual. . . All the credit should be given to Mr.,TayIor for this accomplishment, He has a very enviable record on the llocal papets. When he was put on the Examiner's pay roll he was given the position of ad man. He worked diligently at his iob and was soon promoted to a higher office. He-kept, going up the ladder until he attained the position of superintendent. He held other offices on the old Morning Herald, the Record, andthe Evening Herald-, and founded the Superior Typesetting Company. He started teaching printing in schools in l92O at Los Angeles High School. From there he went to Berendo and then to Lafayette. He came to John Burroughs in i924 and has been teaching printing here these last ten years. 1 Q The experience and training Mr. Taylor has acquired has aided him in teaching the boys that co-operation counts most. "Without co-operation," he said when interviewed, "the Burr would never go out on time." There are many things to do. First, the forms must be made up. Then the printing, whichtakes considerable time. iThe A9 panoramais printed downtown.i After the pages are all printed they are folded and gathered and bound. You can see how long all this takes. We must be working every minute. Mr. Taylor is well pleased with his group of Burr printers. They are: Kyal Smeeby, Robert Wagner, Leonard Schulman, Bert Briskin, Morton Brown, Gerald Cohen, Bud Head, John Hoffman, Fred Kelly, Winton Reynolds, Tom Walker, Waine Shibe, Byron Young, Rolland Stoner, Bill Spiergin, Julian Neveleff, Courtland Hall, Carl Lindstrom, and Sherwin Goldberg. In addition to the above named boys, about one hundred and fifty boys in the six classes of Printing had more or less to do with the production of the Burr.
