To Remove Blackout Masks On Wilshire [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 14 May 1942
To Remove Blackout Masks On Wilshire Blackout masks are to be removed from all traffic signals on Wilshire boulevard, Eighth street and Olympic boulevard in Los Angeles, advises the National Automobile Club. The signals on these three heavily-traveled streets are cable connected and consequently may be turned off at a central control in event of a blackout. The area within the Central Traffic District which comprises 133 signalized intersections, is also cable-controlled, and will be handled in a similar manner. With the staggering of work-hours in Los Angeles, traffic volume has been reduced at many points, which will make it possible for the lifting of blackout masks-from many other additional signals.

Insurance Worries Over For Workers In Defense Plants [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 14 May 1942
Insurance Worries Over For Workers In Defense Plants Motorists using their own cars in vital war work or volunteer defense can forget their worries over insurance protection problems, the State Council of Defense announced today. Dr. Morton R. Gibbons of San Francisco, northern California chief of the Emergency Medical Service unit of the State Defense Council, advised Kenneth I. Fulton, acting executive director, that virtually every American insurance company has approved a joint statement of policy designed to protect automobile owners participating in war and civilian defense activities. This agreement, Dr. Gibbons reported, provides that automobile owners, may drive their own cars or assign them to use by or in behalf of recognized war or defense agencies such as the Office of Civilian Defense, the State Council of Defense, the Red Cross or similar organizations without sacrifice of the insurance protection held by the owner.

Warning Sounded To People To Be On The Alert A warning to the American people to be on the alert against subversive forces that to destroy our democratic way of life and put in its place a controlled system, was voiced today by Don Belding, president of the Pacific Advertising association, and member of the Committee on Public Information of the State Council of Defense. In a statement released through the State Council of Defense, Mr. Belding, who is giving liberally of his time to patriotic and defense activities, said: “In this all-out effort to- win the war, every element in American life is being called on to do its full part. One of the most important of these elements is the American press, who is the watch-dog of our Bill jf Rights. Unlike the press of the Axis countries, and more than any other country of the world, we have a free press—a press not controlled by any group.’’ • —A Slip of the Lip——May Give a Spy a Tip—

The Sage Says: [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 21 May 1942
The Sage Says: By CLYDE BROWNE The above presumptuous title represents the opinion ot the publisher ot this paper, and not the writer of this column, who holds that modesty Is a virtue that should prevail In any Itinerant scribblings. Posted on telephone poles here and there are posters warning all people of Japanese ancestry to make themselves scarce. They are warned that this is dangerous ground. I asked the young man who was driving me to a dinner engagement if any notices were up telling people of German and Italian ancestry to vacate while the going is good. He said he had not seen any, but thought the authorities were about to so post our eastern seaboard. One can generally tell a Jap on sight, but how can we tell a German or Italian ? They look the same as any other American, for the most part. The list of officers and men in any engagement of the Civil War was well sprinkled with German names, as were any list of casualties of World War No. 1, or even in World War No. 2 so f...

Second Meeting Of "Minute Men" Scheduled For Tomorrow Evening [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 21 May 1942
Second Meeting Of "Minute Men" Scheduled For Tomorrow Evening An urgent appeal went out yesterday from Howard D. Mills of the treasury department for men and women volunteers to attend the second meeting of “Minute Men” to be held at each elementary school tomorrow night. A Tomorrow night, at 7:45 p.m., every man and woman of this community will have a chance to be of real service to Uncle Sam. It is the same opportunity that was extended at last Monday’s meeting which should have been the vanguard of a huge army of patriotic volunteers on the home front but instead resulted in as little as 4 or 5 volunteers at some of the schools. “You don’t have to know how to knit, you don’t need a uniform, or a station wagon,” says the treasury department release. “If you have the desire to help your country, and are willing to give three hours a night for six nights then you should report to your nearest elementary school for enrollment and instruction.” The volunteers will call on every home i...
Store Hours Reduced By Owl Drug Co. [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 21 May 1942
Store Hours Reduced By Owl Drug Co. After a careful survey of sales since last October in 25 experimental stores, The Owl Drug Co. has shortened the daily open hours in a large percentage of units. The net result has been an improved store service during the busy shopping periods. This has done much to offset the loss of occasional sales during the late hours of the evening. In fact these stores show a proportionate increase with the stores in which no change has been made. Late houA for a drug store are more tradition than a necessity as this test has shown. The original idea, dating back to generations ago, was to provide 24 hour prescription service. This has long been discontinued but the habit of long hours has persisted. Today people are becoming accustomed to buying during the earlier hours and the public seems to appreciate the voluntary curtailment of open hours which the company has pioneered in the drug store field. The benefits to the employes are many and obvious. Mr. G...
