June 6, 1958

A couple of odd, sad stories… A Spanish American War veteran’s widow dies while donating the flag from his casket to a junior high … A student with polio graduates as valedictorian from Washington and Lee University … And the Mirror praises passage of Proposition B as a sign that Los Angeles has come of age. Placing Dodger Stadium downtown, the heart of the metropolis, spells “Big City,” the Mirror says …

On the cover of Part 2, Dear Abby offers advice to a woman whose husband is too romantic, and Matt Weinstock talks about city traffic … and Jack Webb is getting married again.

Inside, Paul Coates describes the uses and abuses of a newspaper legman.

Bonus factoids: Yes, the John McCone in the cover story is the same one who was director of the Central Intelligence Agency and headed the commission investigating the Watts riots.
