Case Number II: Joan Bush (May 21st)
Another native born California fortyniner. Ambition for Joanie is in interior decoration. And well-suited to his profession is she. Her talent being art work (many good examples are present in this Fortyniner Annual; in which she assisted in planting the Gold Rush Days’ Spirit). She’s a good sport and in all School activities. This valuable nugget in all fortyniner efforts is also a knitter – present project – a summer dress.

Favorite saying: I think that’s abstract.
Suppressed desire: Solo in the air

From the 1949 Mar-Ken Yearbook: “Guess Who”:
No beating ’round the Bush this time
We’ll tell you everything in rhyme
At school and away she does smart work
Turn the page and see her art work.
