April 28, 1938


Below, the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette in the Harry Raymond bombing gets particularly juicy when the prosecution introduces a large stack of recording discs, apparently of radio speeches, taken from police. Prosecutors charge that the Los Angeles Police Department’s intelligence unit spent most of its time keeping tabs on the administration’s enemies rather than tracking criminals. The names include former mayoral candidates, civic officials, journalists and an evangelist … Nazi Field Marshal Hermann Goering orders the confiscation of Jewish wealth … Child actor Jackie Coogan’s fortune has gone from $4 million to $500,000 … And wedding bells ring for Albania’s King Zog.

Quote of the Day: "If finance would get out of government and government would get out of business, everything would go again." –Henry Ford, on fixing America’s economy
