More than 1,000 young voices were raised in tribute when Old Glory was raised at Carthay Center Elementary School for the first day of the fall semester. The boys and girls were greeted by Principal Dorothy Troeger and Mrs. Ruth Cole, Los Angeles School Boardmember, both on steps in background. Two 11-year-old boys, Leland Preisler and Steve Arditti, arrived at dawn to take charge of the ceremony. Photo dated: September 13, 1954.
