The Sage Says: [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 30 December 1941
The Sage Says: By CLYDE BROWNE The above presumptuous title represents the opinion of the* publisher of this paper, and not° the writer of this column, who holds that modesty Is a virtue that should prevail In any Itinerant scrlbblings. If the readers of this column have been wondering how anyone had-the cheek to write these es-says-if his mind was so erractic that he could turn out such garbled twaddle, he has nothing on me. I also wonder when I happened to see the last issue of this paper. No one pointer could do such a good job of distortion, all of which leads me to believe that cither the type wrastlers and the proof reader have gone into a huddle, or else the fifth columnists are getting in their deadly work all the way from the linotype to the pressroom. * ♦ ♦ Christmas time there was a blitzkreig on turkeys, chickens and rabbits. Many a loyal bird bit the dust before the armistice, and even now there comes the mop-up of cold turkey, turkey hash and turkey soup. Many thousand...

Remind Public to Save Christmas Wrappings and Boxes f0r1942 Yule Gifts Just a minute! Don’t throw away the sea of wrappings left from your Christmas packages. Gather up the boxes, the gay wrapping papers and the colorful ribbons and strings and preserve them carefully. Save them for next year’s presents. There is a great possibility of a paper shortage due to the present during the coming year. Christmas-decorated papers and fancy boxes will be on the luxury list and in the event of a paper shortage the manufacture of such items will be curtailed. If you want next year’s Christmas gifts to look festive, take a tip and save the wrapings you have now. One qf the best ways to keep the wrapping papers is to roll them up and wrap them on the outside with newspaper to keep them from getting tarnished and dusty. Put the string that matches the paper in the center of the roll and next Christmas you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find you have saved complete ensembles for wrapping gifts. Put ...

Hohmann Snubs Lieutenant Post At H. P. Station [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 30 December 1941
Hohmann Snubs Lieutenant Post At H. P. Station Apparently the position of lieutenant at the Highland Park Police Station isn’t as choice a morsel to Arthur C. Hohmann as his former post of chief of police or deputy chief. Hohmann appeared before the police commission last week in support of his written demand for reinstatement to either of his former offices. The ex-chief claims his ouster from the two positions was illegal and said so in a written statement before the civil service and police commissions. In the meantime, Hohmann was assigned to the Highland Park Police Station as a lieutenant but flatly refused to budge from his demands for reinstatement.

The strips are to be placed across the 1941 license plates. New full size plates will be issued only for cars beirig registered in California for the first time.
State R. R. Commission Utilities Board Postpones "W" Car Line Hearing [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 30 December 1941
State R. R. Commission Utilities Board Postpones "W" Car Line Hearing The State Railroad Commission has taken off its calendar for an indefinite period the “W” carline hearing set for January 5, the reason given that the City of Los Angeles Board of Public Utilities and Transportation has not reached a decision on the application now before it. ~ The Board has not yet set a date for its postponed hearing, at which the Los Angeles Railway company experts are expected to give the Board their analysis of the Bean-Lanham plan, and to present facts to support its own application.

Late last week an application for increase of fares was filed jointly by the Pacific Electric, L. A. Motor Coach, and the Los Angeles Railway. The proposed rates have not yet been studied by the Post-Dispatch. An early hearing has been ...

"PLEASE DON'T HURT MY LITTLE GIRL" An Open Letter to MOTORISTS [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 30 December 1941
"PLEASE DON'T HURT MY LITTLE GIRL" An Open Letter to MOTORISTS DEAR DRIVER A few days ago my daughter,' who is seven years old, started back to school. She usually wears a blue dress with a white collar, and a pair of black shoes. Her cocker spaniel, whose name is “Scot,” sits on the front porch each morning and whines his canine belief in the tolly of education as she waves “good-bye” and starts off to the halls of learning. Last night we talked about school. She told me about thje girl who sits in front of her—the girl with the yellow, curls—and the boy across the aisle who makes funny faces. She told me about her teacher, who has eyes in the back of her head—and about the trees in the school yard —and about the big girl who doesn’t believe in Santa Claus. We talked about a lot of things—tremendously vital, unimportant things; then we studied spelling, reading and arithmetic—and then went to bed. She’s upstairs now—sound asleep, with “Princess Elizabeth” (that’s her doll) cuddled ...
