March 30, 1961: The Scottish Daily Express quotes Caltech seismologist Hugo Benioff (d. 1968) as saying that a devastating earthquake is set to hit Los Angeles.  The reporter apparently misquoted or distorted what Benioff said, according to Matt Weinstock, who adds: The old Caltech lullaby remains unchanged: "All we know about earthquakes is that the farther we are from the last one the closer we are to the next one."
 
CONFIDENTIAL TO WORRIED STUDENT: See a physician at once. Doctors have had a great deal of experience in situations such as these and can be trusted to respect confidences.
