The Sage Says; T"» t~» /MIIXTIJ i [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 14 May 1942
The Sage Says; T"» t~» /MIIXTIJ i By CLYDE BROWNE | The above presumptuous title 1 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 scribbllngs. The day the children come home to eat —maybe—at least In the hope that Mom will have a good-sized pot of stew, or maybe something better. Mom expects to work harder that day than most any day in the, year, except, possibly, Christmas. The gang tumbles in and the children turn the house topsy-turvy. The men go out to the garage to see how long the family car will run before it has to be jacked up on piles of bricks for “the duration.” Maybe one will stay for a nap on the sofa, for four hours sleep wasn’t enough to keep the sandman away. Anyway it’s so restful to see Mom puttering around just like she always has. The girls at the dish-drying bee don’t bother to visit with Mom. They discuss excitedly such vital topics as Susie’s mea...

Court Decides In Favor Of Mid- City Drug Stores [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 14 May 1942
Court Decides In Favor Of MidCity Drug Stores In a decision that is expected to have a major effect on merchandising practices throughout the State, the Supreme Court has just ruled in favor of the Mid-City Drug Stores that the giving of trading stamps constitutes the allowance of a discount for cash, and therefore the practice is not prohibited by the California Unlawful Practices Act. Virtually all trial courts to whom this question has been presented have ruled against the giving of trading stamps on the ground that it constitutes an unfair business practice and their use generally had been abandoned by merchants. The State Supreme Court decision, however, is expected to revive the practice. The action was brought by the Food and Grocery Bureau of Southern California Incorporated, a corporation, Plaintiff and Respondent, vs. Harold B. Garfield, individually and doing busihess ’under the fictitious name of MidCity Drug Co., Defendant and Appellant. The Food and Grocery Bureau of S...

Ceiling On Rents Discussed Latest Factor To Enter Heal Estate Field Considered [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 14 May 1942
Ceiling On Rents Discussed Latest Factor To Enter Heal Estate Field Considered The Highland Park Realty Board devoted its regular monthly meeting at the American Legion hall last Tuesday evening to a consideration of the latest and greatest factor to enter the field of real estate —the ceiling over rents. » President Smith reported an interview held earlier in the day with an attorney of the Office of Price Administration. It would appear that the immediate preoccupation of Southern California officials is with the situation in San Diego rather than in Los Angeles, and it will probably be two months or more before a detailed plan of operation and the necessary organization is completed locally. It was indicated, however, that the approach of the government would be not in the spirit of arbitrary crack-down, but rather to encourage cooperation on the part of landlords in checking the vicious spiral of rising living costs which President Roosevelt recently pointed out would be disastr...

What Do You Think? [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 14 May 1942
What Do You Think? Am An AmericanV 9 It was three years ago that the leading citizens of Manitowoc, Wis., a shipbuilding town on the shores of Lake Michigan, declared, in effect: Is becoming a citizen of this great republic so small a matter that we should ignore it almost completely? Let us have a fitting ceremony at which all the young people in our community who, in the past year, have reached their majority, and all those who have become naturalized, can publicly dedicate themselves to the principles of our democracy and publicly pledge their loyalty to its institutions. And let there be stirring music from the bands,and let thousands of voices be uplifted in song!” Needless to say, the sterling merit of the idea won fellow-townsmen’s approval and, in very short order, that of the entire nation, with an act of Congress officially designating the third Sunday in May of each year as “I Am An American Day.” Nor could there be a more fitting climax to Citizenship Week, May 10 to 17....
