Jan. 4, 1942: A rather drunk William Kollomick, who gave his address as “Pearl Harbor,” is in jail after getting into a brawl with four unidentified Mexican youths outside a cafe at 1st and Broadway.
The youths walked out of the cafe when Kollomick began abusing them, but he followed them and continued berating them, The Times said. “The argument resulted in a free-for-all” in which Kollomick sustained a split lip and bruises.
Rychei Tanaka, 55, Sakiko Takemoto, 22, and Chika Takemoto, 48, are in jail on charges of violating the presidential ban against Japanese owning weapons and radios.
Philip K. Scheuer looks at movies that that have been superseded by historic events: MGM has retitled “I’ll Take Manila!” as “Ship Ahoy!” and Fox’s “Song of the Islands” is being held for release.
In the theaters: “How Green Was My Valley,” “They Died With Their Boots On,” “Ball of Fire,” “40,000 Horsemen” and “Louisiana Purchase.”
