Follow-up questionnaires and interviews have been devised to answer some of the following questions: "Do you feel that you received adequate preparation for upper division work at Long Beach City College? If you had it to do all.over again, would you again choose to attend City C o l l e g e for your first two years? What could we have done to make your experience here more valuable?",. To the first two questions, the response of former students has been decidedly affirmative. The . great majority^ of those responding to questionnaires Have praised the quality of instruction, and instructors, at LBCC. To the third question, former students have respond, ed with a number of constructive suggestions. The evidence at hand indicates sound academic preparation in the Long Beach Unified School District,, from the lower grades through the City College. All 'of the various kinds of follow-up studies, made here and elsewhere, indicate two main points: (1) City College graduates do well in advanced college work, and (2) the students themselves testify to the quality of their academic training here.

Business Is Better of These 2 Key Shopping Centers Here's big news for the merchant: Business is good and growing at BIXBY KNOLLS SHOPPING CENTER and CIRCLE SHOPPING CENTER. Merchants located in these centers averaged an 11 per cent increase in business in the first 10 months of 1958, while the Southern California retail sales were generally off about 2 per cent. Why was this? Smart shoppers find the greatest variety, the best values and the easiest free parking at the DIXBY KNOLLS SHOPPING CENTER and CIRCLE SHOPPING CENTER. Here's an even better reason: The center of population in Long Beach is at a point almost directly between BIXBY KNOLLS SHOPPING CENTER and CIRCLE SHOPPING CENTER. This means that the greatest concentration of homes in the City lies within a three-mile radius of these two smart, modern centers, and is served by both. More than a quarter million homes are in this heartland, representing a gross income totaling well over $300,000,000.
