Priced at $149,000 Kirby Winn, Realtor Associate email: Our First Sightseer [I thinkl MARY CHASE WALKER Looking at her photo in the Old Town schoolhouse, I am reminded of the silly old children's song that goes "She was a nice girl, a pretty girl, and her hair hung down in ring-a-lets." Then the chorus merrily repeats "ring- a-lets" at varying pitch, for full effect. It's the sort of ditty that snags in the rolls and wrinkles of your brain, forever and ever. Well, she was pretty in a schoolmarmish way that could turn severe at any suggestion of a stray impure adolescent thought. She looks directly at me from between those tight, tubular ringlets, with her fine lace collar held chastely by a protective cameo. I avert my gaze. Not satisfied with her $200 annual salary as a New England schoolmarm, Mary Walker paid almost two years' wages for a four-week journey by sea to San Francisco. It was an unusual thing for a single woman to undertake. But there was no work for her in that city. by Albert Simonson San Diego and her pupils. "Of all the dilapidated, miserable looking places I had ever seen, this was the worst. The first night, a donkey came under my window and saluted me with an unearthly bray. The fleas were plentiful and hungry." About school, she lamented tardiness and absence caused by a lack of clocks and an abundance of fiestas. At recess, the girls smoked cigarettes while the boys lassoed vagrant pigs and hens. Boys could be expected to desert their scholastic endeavors for a whole week to take part in preparations for a bullfight or bull and bear fight. Their lack of reading skills mattered little, on a practical Backtracking to San Diego, she made a deep impression on E.W. Morse, president of the school board. So, in 1865, she became the first regular schoolteacher in American San Diego. So impressed was Morse that, after her first year, they got married. Morse probably had few impure thoughts, being acclaimed as the "ideal citizen." A Yankee himself, he fancied that Yankee schoolmarm look. He was worthy. It would have been scandalous for a married woman to teach innocent children with fertile and furtive imaginings, so she had to resign. They could afford it - Morse was a successful merchant who continued to be involved in virtually every major business or civic venture in the area, from banks to Balboa Park to subdividing El Cajon. In 1898, a year before her death, Mary sat in quiet retirement with her husband in Alpine and penned her first impressions of level, since the girls' privy was readily identifiable by a crescent cut into the door, while the boys' had a simple round hole. This probably is meaningful on some level. My own Julian one-holer has both crescent and star, making it a unisex facility, I guess. Things have improved since then, but teachers still complain. Next time you hear them complain, just tell them about what Mary was up against. It wasn't really all that bad though - I learned to read early from the comics on my family's privy wall. By late summer in 1870, her starchy Yankee standards had softened. Her first glimpse of Julian was a delight, as they passed over a sharp rocky hill. "The city of Julian in all its glory burst upon us." "The sun was setting," she wrote, "and shone upon the white roofs of the little town. I could have shouted with very joy at the sight." It is perplexing that the roofs appeared white. The accommodation was "a rough board shanty of one room, with cracks sufficiently wide for through ventilation." Early Julian was built with green lumber, which cupped and curled. Furniture was home made in a rustic style. Tin cups and plates graced a plain table, Wall d6cor was Early American Mining Camp, with frying pans and baking tins. She enjoyed her every day in the "city of Julian ...... where pines and oaks .... and every cabin and shanty had a strangely enchanted look." Next time you hear people griping about Julian, just tell them about what Mary said. That should shut thegn up. I like Mary, starch and ring- a-lets and all. Maybe it's a guy thing, but she strikes me as a lady who was easy to please. And whether she was our exactly first sightseer or not is unimportant. She was the first to tell us how good it felt. Every U.S. bank note, regardless of value, weighs one gram. That means four hundred and fifty four bills will equal one pound. Julian Time-Line continued from page 1 opened.
