Army Clears Strikers at North American Aviation

June 10, 1941: Bill Henry files a color story on soldiers using rifles with bayonets to herd strikers away from the North American Aviation plant. Unfortunately, my new optical character recognition software can’t handle these old clips, so I have to post the images of the stories. Henry’s story is worth reading.

Also on the jump, Ethel Waters stars in “Cabin in the Sky.”

Jimmie Fidler says: On the newsstands this month is a magazine which features an astrological analysis of Cary Grant’s present status and future prospects… The birthday used in preparing Grant’s chart was 1909, a date given out in a studio publicity department biography. Cary’s real birth year was 1904!
