Ave. 35 when their niece Miss Louise Foster became the bride of Clarence B. Judson. The large rooms were a bower of greenery, brightened with myriad blossoms and sweet peas and asters. The ceremony which was read by the Rev. Will Knighten, was performed under a canopy of asparagus ferns and sweet peas. A large bell of sweet peas, being over the couple. The bride, a beautiful blonde, wore a gown of white crepe drapeo with lace and silver and gold and carried a bouquet of pink sweet peas with maidenhair fern.

So few know correct way to help lady remove coat [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
So few know correct way to help lady remove coat It is strange that not one person in a thousand who knows how to help a man or lady with his coat or a lady with her jacket. They all make the mistake of holding the gar- merit too high, especially the last sleeve. They lift it so high that a man nearly dislocates his arm reaching for it. The more futilely he grabs and claws and lurches for it, the higher they hold it until the wretched victim would have to get on a pair of stilts to find the armhole. The proper way? Why hold the coat so that the armholes are as low as a man’s waist, taking care to keep the skirt of the garment off the floor, of course. If there is any struggle to find the last armhole, drop it still lower. Never raise it. Drop it until his hand slips into it naturally.
Proper boots for our school girls [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Proper boots for our school girls For footwear the college girl will require heavy soled tramping boots of tan calf, two pairs of buttoned boots, one pair having contrasting material in dressy style; one pair of evening slipper and a pair of smart black pumps for wear on ordinary evenings with the dinner costume. It is better to provide buttoned boots than pumps for day wear with all costumes for the little freshman will be apt to dash out of doors in all sorts of weather, perfectly regardless of her foot covering.

Old Timer Looks Back HP resident recalls Good Old Days [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Old Timer Looks Back HP resident recalls Good Old Days By Martin Carman My first recollection of Highland Park dates back to around the year 1915 when our family moved here from another section of Los Angeles to take up our residence on Mesa Avenue. It was while living here that I first attended Garvanza School beginning in the first grade. How well I still remember the old school with its English style, steep-pitched roof, supported by outer walls of white stucco, contrasted with wide, wooden strips trimmed in brown. Each morning before entering the main building via the steps on Ave. 62, the principal, the late Sidney V. Good would assemble us at the foot of the steps for our daily "pep talk” before having the salute to the Flag. And I confess that to this day, from each of those five-minute talks during the entire eight years, only one single piece of advice has stuck with me "Do each day’s work each day.” WARTIME SONGS How well, too, I recollect the patriotic songs we learned so...
Was there really a haunted house? [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Was there really a haunted house? By E. CRUMPACKEB In the early 30’s, when we were children, speculation ran high as to whether or not the “Old Jeffries House’’ at the corner of Cypress and North Figueroa was really haunted. Everyone knew the prize fighter, Jim Jeffries, used to live there, but that was long before our time. We only knew the house as a symbol of mystery. On our way to the Arroyo Theatre on North Figueroa, we three never missed wondering aloud about the spectral tenant of the "Old Jeffries House.” Returning from a Saturday matinee, we decided to “investigate” the big, grey house and know for sure whether the stories surrounding its lonely life on top of the hill were true. Access to the house was by climbing about 100 wide, cement steps from Cypress Avenue. Bravely we started up. Twenty steps later, my younger sister lost courage and decided the better part of valor consisted in sitting out the experience right there. Onward and upward our friend and I proceeded ghos...

WHERE EVER YOU LOOK, SOLD BY COOK!" Cook Realty Dedicated to Progress of Highland Park [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
WHERE EVER YOU LOOK, SOLD BY COOK!" Cook Realty Dedicated to Progress of Highland Park “If one had to reduce success in the real estate business to one essential quality, I would say it is dedication to the community in which the real estate man operates.” So stated Ernie Harnsberger, president, owner and guiding genius of the Cook Realty Company, 6330 N. Figueroa in considering his firm’s part in the growth and development of Highland Park. “Real Estate organizations cannot work in a vacuum. Their success must be measured in the framework of the community in which they do business,” he said. On this count, Cook Realty has been highly successful, for Cook Realty, and its staff of six real estate specialists has had a. major part in “selling” Highland Park to thousands of clients who have come to them for guidance in the purchase of homes, and apartments and businesses. In addition to this business activity, Harnesberger himself, as lecturer on real estate and sales techniques, has s...
