May 27, 1938


Photograph by the Los Angeles Times, dated April 13, 1938



Above, the defendants and their attorneys in the Harry Raymond bombing … At left, more angry exchanges between Deputy Dist. Atty. Eugene Williams and Police Capt. Earle Kynette …

Also: The mayor of Santa Monica, accompanied by police, orders the gambling ship Rex to cease operations. The order also applies to water taxis ferrying people to the ship … A furious brawl breaks out between strikers and police at the Goodyear plant in Akron, Ohio, injuring more than 100 people …  And Congress begins the investigation of un-American activities after Rep. Martin Dies (D-Texas) reports on gatherings of Nazi sympathizers in the U.S. At one Nazi "camp," a speaker advocated the assassination of President Roosevelt, Dies says, without identifying the camp or the speaker.

On the jump, extensive quotes from Kynette’s testimony under questioning by Williams.
