Solon Finds L.B. Teaching Helps in School-Law Work Assemblyman Carley V. Porter who as a legislator spends much of his time making speeches and studying government, is 'Vacationing" this summer at Long Beach City College by teaching classes dealing with just those subjects. The Compton assemblyman finds that this teaching "side-line" helps him as a member of the Assembly's education committee, which deals with the problems of school districts. When 'the bill to curtail adult education services in schools came , before the Assembly, Porter was a leader in the fight which killed the measure. "I had seen llr»t hand the tine work which adult education classes were doing," Porter explained. "I could tell the other legislators that such courses performed a real service for the community." Porter, who resides at 401 W. Palmer Ave,, Compton, was first elected to the Assembly seat in 1949. A Democrat, he won reelection to the post in the primaries in 1950 and 1952. Before entering politics, Porter .was head of the social science department at Excelsior High School and was superintendent of Woodlawn Cemetery Co. His current summer classes,at City College are public speaking and naturalization. In the latter, he finds his experience as a legislator help in the instruction of foreign-born adults who are studying to become United States citizens. Porter plans to return to Excelsior Union High School this fall as a teacher, but in the spring he will go back to Sacramento when the state legislature opens its sessions. Besides serving on the education committee, he is a member ol the Assembly committees on livestock and dairies, ways and means, and manufacturing, oil and mining industries. He and his wife have one son, Carl, who is 5% and will enter kindergarten in September. Fire Strips 900 Acres RENO, New--(KB).
