The publication further announced that the Los Angeles Railway is prepared to pay a reward of $lOO.OO for information leading to and resulting in the arrest and conviction of any person committing an act of sabotage against any piece of the Railway’s equipment. “It is to your interest and the interests of the war, effort to assist with the apprehension of any individual committing such sabotage,” Topics concluded.
