Community salutes its oldest ’girl graduate' [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Community salutes its oldest ’girl graduate' Grade Booher Shepard waited until she was 74 years old to graduate from college, and takes real pride in being one of the oldest “grads” in Northeast Los Angeles. It took a long time for Mrs. Shepard, a bright-eyed, brilliant “coed” to get that coveted sheep skin, but she was determined. Gracie lost her mother when she was just four years old and as “the middle one” in a family of seven there was much to do to help her Texas Daddy in rearing his family. When her older sister married at a young age, it was up to Gracie “to bake the biscuits.” ‘There wasn’t anybody else to do it,” she chuckles. “So I had to.” But through sheer necessity she became the most famous biscuit baker in the Lone Star State. She doesn’t say so. Those who ate them said that. She didn’t have any particular recipe . . . just took flour and salt and baking powder, lard, buttermilk and a pinch of soda. ‘“Don’t roll them too thick. Get them brown and crunchy and when you...
Mothers' Club tripled membership [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Mothers' Club tripled membership The Mothers’ Club of St. Dominic’s School was started in 1946, with Mrs. Lawrence Dixon as the first president. At that time, the membership was 125, Today the Mothers’ Club, under the presidency of Mrs. Marion Kemp, has 375 members. The Mothers’ Club has three aims spiritual advancement, financial aid to the school, and social advantages for the members. The Mothers’ Club was founded for the spiritual benefit of its members.

Study groups are held and each year a special committee is formed to encourage all Catholics in the area to subscribe to the Archdiocesan paper, ‘The Tidings.” Many Projects As would be expected, one of their primary objectives is the raising of funds to help the children and the Sisters of SL Dominic’s School.

Catherine lvers...busy mother, successful career [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Catherine lvers...busy mother, successful career Mrs. Catherine Ivers . . . hers Is a real success story and a saga of what a woman with determination and the love of hard work can do when she’s put to the test. It was 51 years ago that Mr. and Mrs. Ivers went into business in a tiny eight-foot area drygoods store, part of the La Mode Shop, then located on Pasadena Ave. (now Figueroa) and N. Ave. 26. Although endowed with a lot of ambition and energy, it is doubtful that Mrs. Ivers ever dreamed at that time to what extent their tiny dry goods store would grow and GROW! Born Catherine Rose Rogers, Mrs. Ivers came to Los Angeles in 1908 with her mother and sisters. Here she attended college and graduated with a teaching credential. She met and married Ivers in 1912, and became the mother of six children: Jesse Jr., John, Bill, Jane (Atckison), Betty (Atckison) and Mary (Bartlett). Here is a real family venture in business where the youngsters helped to build and shared in the founding...
Highland Poets Only one lone poet showed [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Highland Poets Only one lone poet showed The Poets of the Highlands was founded by Imojean Earl Younger in January, 1940. That Fall she called at the Arroyo Seco Library to ascertain the names of local poets, that poetry lovers in this area might meet together and help each other in the study and writing of poetry. That first meeting only one lone poet met with Mrs. Younger because of the heavy rain that afternoon. In 1941, at the invitation of one of the charter members, they were invited to join the State organization, The California Federation of Chaparral Poets, in which they have ever since taken an active part. Their present officers are; Lenore McLaughlin Link; president; Margaret L. Youngblood, vice president; Imojean Earl Younger, secretary; Peggy Horn Hawkins, treasurer; Clara Sloan Parrish, chaplain; Naoni A. Dallas, analyst; Mrytle Ritter, social chairman, and Margaret L. Youngblood, publicity. Poets of the Highlands hold monthly meetings in each other’s homes and now ha...
'LA Beautiful' started in Eagle Rock [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
'LA Beautiful' started in Eagle Rock The community of Eagle Rock proudly points to Mrs. Valley Knudsen, who started her “Los Angeles Beautiful” program right here in this area, and since that time has spread the gospel of beautifying mundane city appointments all over the country. Almost single-handedly, this little lady approached hardheaded executives who once thought that beautification was an unnecessary frill, and showed them how it actually paid off in dollars and cents. Most significant was her research which proved that treelined streets are more frequented by eager shoppers than the plain asphalt and concrete. She is still a member of Eagle Rock Twentieth Century Club and often returns to her old home on speaking engagements for which she is so famous. She serves in the women’s division of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and was president from 1947-49. She is also on the Los Angeles Board of World Affairs Council and was its vice president from 1955-59. In 1962 she rece...

Council of Churchwomen Twelve million women can't be wrong [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Council of Churchwomen Twelve million women can't be wrong By Helen Clifford Peter* Kagle Rock Council of Church Women, an affiliate of United Church Women of Southern California - Southern Nevada, was re-organized in -1949, largely through the interest and preliminary work of Mrs. Samuel H. Sayre, wife of the then rector of St. Barnabus Episcopal Church. It had formerly been affiliated with the Los Angeles Coun- cil of UCW, but with less local church participation due to traveling and time problems. At present, there are 10 churchwomen’s organizations in the Eagle Rock Council, some actually outside the communi- ty boundaries. (Because a congregation of Methodists and Congregationalism called United Church of Eagle Rock, the Council slightly altered the usual term. United Church Women, to avoid confusion.) The Council's purpose is stated thus: "The purpose shall be to unit churchwomen in their allegiance to their Christ, through a program looking to their integration in the total l...

Wednesday Morning Club began as study group in 1898 It started with Shakespeare [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Wednesday Morning Club began as study group in 1898 It started with Shakespeare On Jan. 25, 1893, Mrs. Chester P. Dorland invited the women from the community to the Church of East Los Angeles, now known sis “Lincoln Heights,” to meet with her to form a class for the purpose of studying Shakespeare’s plays; about 20 responded. The interest in this new line of work was soon so manifest in the community that “The Wednesday Morning Club” was at once organized, with Mrs. A. D. Clark as its first president, and Mrs. Dorland conducting the study class. The Congregational Church at 2440 Daly St. opened its Assembly Hall as a meeting place. This was, with the exception of three years when Campbell and Schleischer Halls were rented, the home of the club until it moved into its Club House' Jan. 4, 'l9ll. The Wednesday Morning Club has from its inception held to the purposes of its founder, and is essentially- a study and philanthropic club. The club has had many of its members called to respo...

Library needed help . . . Frances Bailey acted! [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 November 1964
Library needed help . . . Frances Bailey acted! Friends of the Eagle Rock Library began last year under the leadership of Miss Frances Bailey. Its purpose is to assist the local Library in maintaining high standards in serving the community; to recruit sufficient members to stimulate more intelligent use of the library on the part of adults, children and adolescents. Specifically the organization will encourage gifts of money to the library from the community, also art objects or books as may be considered by the Library Board as usable in the Library. The Friends of the Library closed its first year (1963-64) with well over 100 members. Now in its second year there is evidence of the organization’s being approved for its service as a library auxiliary by the high percentage of membership renewals and the new memberships as well. Credit for the organization’s achievements as a civic group is due not only to the founders but also to other individuals and groups, convincing talks in f...
