The Sage Says; [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 28 May 1942
The Sage Says; By CLYDE BROWNE The above presumptuous title represents the opinion of the publisher of this paper, and not the writer ot this column, who holds that modesty Is a virtue that should prevail In any Itinerant scribblings. Ho hum! Me for the doctor’s today, full of contempt for the victims of medical torture chambers who didn’t know the meaning of the word pain. While their screams echoed down through the pages of history, I merely say a few prayers with reverse English. (If I didn’t feel that the linotyper would snort. “Yea, Sage!” I would have spelled that word English with a lower case e as the U.S. Printing Office Style Book gives it.) # * * Don’t try and fancy literary didoes unless you are big and strong enough to lick a linotyper, for his machine sets six lines a minute, and he likes to “hang the elevator,” or garrote any writer who says anything that makes him pause long enough to miss a line. • * • To continue the topic of the doctor, who even now is whetting hi...
Army Of "Minute Men" Speed Bond Pledge Drive In "Doorbell" Campaign [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 28 May 1942
Army Of "Minute Men" Speed Bond Pledge Drive In "Doorbell" Campaign Away to a good start this week was the Minute Men campaign to sign possible purchaser of war savings bonds and stamps in Los Angeles to a pledge to buy a definite amount at regular intervals. Thousands of men and women, wearing the blue and white insignia of the Minute Men, went from house to house explaining the purpose of the drive and obtained signed pledges. Although it was still too early to compile a comprehensive report, Howard Mills, state administrator for Southern California of the war savings staff, said that spot checks made in selected localities indicated a generous response. He emphasized, too, that more volunteer canvassers are needed and urged citizens, willing to help, to get in touch with their school district captains, whose identity can be learned from elementary school principals.
