"Millikan Students Save Cars, Homes in Fire"

"STUDENTS PUSHED CARS TO SAFETY, BATTLED FLAMES IN FAST- MOVING GRASS FIRE"
"Before fire equipment reached the scene, the students borrowed shovels and garden hoses to beat the flames threatening garages and fences and cut a fire-break through the brush. Other students used school fire hoses to combat the flames."
"The students smashed car windows with their bare hands to release hand brakes on a dozen parked cars."

Both photos were published in the Long Beach Press Telegram for which I was paid the princely sum of $5 (and I still decided to be a photographer).
