April 18, 1938


Above, fighting in the Holy Land … Below, jury selection is nearly concluded in the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette in the Harry Raymond bombing … Note the brief on the lawsuit brought by former child star Jackie Coogan against his mother and stepfather over the money he made as a youngster …  Police officers capture cattle that escaped from the meatpacking plant on Macy Street (now Cesar Chavez). Humorous stories about police chasing (and sometimes killing) livestock in downtown Los Angeles were a staple of local newspapers at least through the 1940s … In an attempt to ease traffic congestion, the city widens and extends downtown streets.

Quote of the Day: "The volume of traffic caused by the city’s continued growth increases faster than outlets can be provided." — Lloyd Aldrich, city engineer
