Mrs. Ralph H. Hilton, a director of the Los Angeles County Tuberculosis and Health Association, presented a framed certificate to Principal Max Appleby, Journalism Advisor Alex Rudoff and Co-editors-in-chief Doris Swirn and John Matheson. The honor was one of three conferred on school papers in Los Angeles County in the 17th Annual School Press Project conducted last November and December. Compton High's 'Compton Chimes' and Baldwin Park High's 'Silver Streak' were the other winners. Said Mrs. Hilton, wife of a Burbank councilman, 'Not only has El Bee proven itself a model of scholastic journalism, it has shown that TB still is striking with alarming frequency.' 'El Bee' won the national citation because of originality, journalistic style, clear presentation, evidence of research, factual accuracy and understanding of the subjects, 'How Our Town Fights TB' and 'What Do We Know About TB?' in its December 25 issue. There were 164 national winners out of 315 entries from 38 states, District of Columbia and Hawaii".
