Photograph article dated September 4, 1964 partially reads, "Children who attend Napa Street Grammar School in Northridge think the best time of year to go to school is during summer vacation. That's when they teach the good things - like roller skating, Limbo dancing, acting, sports and The Fine Art of Eating Watermelon! As evidenced in the photographs on this page, the youngsters took to their 'watermelon' lesson with enthusiasm, leaving only the rinds to prove they didn't need much instruction in that subject. The summer playground activities are supervised by Ted Barricklow, fifth grade teacher at the school. He reports that second to watermelon eating, the children's favorite summer subjects are Limbo Contests and Treasure Hunts." Photograph caption reads, "Four different styles of watermelon eating are demonstrated by, from left, April Coats, Todd Shimamoto, Stacy Nichols and David Chambers, all 6-year-olds, from Northridge."; See images #00134049 through #00134054 for all photos in this series.
