From - Copa de Oro 1928, page 53

"Sara James was another popular member of the Class of 1923.  She took part in the very clever senior play, The Yellow Jacket, and also had a role in Chimes of Normandy, the operetta of the year.  It is interesting to know that in 1923 the lightweight track team won the Central League Championship.

At the opening of the fall term in 1923, Miss James was added to the office force and has proved herself a willing and capable worker.  She is always ready to help in her cheerful manner, and so 'Our Sara' has become endeared to the whole school.

Early in the spring Miss James announced her engagement to Mr. Lawrence Allen of Los Angeles.  The faculty complimented her with a shower on the ninth of May at Miss Hoag's home."
