Donnie De Leon, who is only 3 years old, is going to be a very lonesome boy. For three months, as the youngest of the "gang," he had the time of his life playing with his brother and neighborhood kids. Now, the "gang" is going away...away to school, and Donnie is the one they left behind on September 14, 1953. Bidding him goodby are, left to right: Valerie Chamblin, 10; Sylvia Odekirk, 10; W. Van Hoye, 5; George Van Hoye, 7; Cathie Schmidt; and Randie De Leon, 5. The children attend Washington Street School in Burbank.
