Sept. 23, 1959: To folks who think traffic in Los Angeles is a new problem, please read the stories on 1) freeways 2) new buses 3) moving sidewalks. Bonus story 4) drunk drivers.

Matt Weinstock on the complaint that teachers spend too much time maintaining order in the classroom and too little time teaching. "And yet I happen to know that on the third day of school a knife with a 3-inch blade was taken from an arrogant 9-year-old by a child welfare and attendance officer, who says grimly: "It looks like another tough year."

And you thought the 1950s were a kinder, simpler time.
