June 17, 1958



Dropcap_h_1925 ere’s a crime-filled page: Narcotics traffic is responsible for much of the lawbreaking in L.A. (blame those lenient judges, says Police Chief William Parker), a plot to kidnap Bing Crosby’s wife and an insurance scheme in which someone intentionally gets some bones broken before staging a car accident. This scam still turns up in Los Angeles from time to time, but now the fraud ring uses several cars to "box in" a victim on the freeway.

Also: Gene Sherman takes a look at Disneyland, three years after it opened.
