Description
The 6th grade at a Compton elementary school on April 6, 1951, presenta an entirely different atmosphere, with plenty of light and air and the latest visual teaching aids. The Compton elementary school system and the Compton Teachers' Club observe their 25th anniversary Wednesday. Singing star Janis Paige has been chosen honorary superintendent of schools for the day and will break ground for the new $440,000 Charles W. Burch School at Aprilla and 156th Streets.
