Jan. 23, 1959: Matt Weinstock ‘Money Well Spent’


Jan. 23, 1959: Matt Weinstock covers a speech by Newsweek Washington Bureau Chief Ernest K. Lindley. “Foreign aid is the best money we spend to hold off communism,” Lindley said.

The best way to get from Westwood to Burbank by bus? “Buy a car.”

Also: Toe-walking may mean schizophrenia and by Paul Popenoe “Why Does Married Male Enjoy Burlesque Show?” Popenoe was active in the Human Betterment Foundation, a eugenicist organization in Pasadena that inspired the Nazis. No, really. That was a thing.

Weinstock’s column originally appeared in the L.A. Mirror in 1959 and was reposted on latimes.com in 2009. It is available via Archive.org.
