Earle C. Anthony, L.A.H.S. '99, O.C. '03, editor of the '03 Blue and Gold, was one of the two authors of the curtain raiser for the football show, presented after the football game. It was a musical farce called Dora Flora. Its music was the Flora Dora music, and its action was laid on the island of "Fullofprunes."

This month's number of the University of California Magazine contains two articles by High School alumni. One is an entertaining review by Miss Belle Cooper, '91, of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, Jr. The other is a story called Gabrielle, by Miss Beatrice Snow, L.A.H.S. '99, U.C. '04.
