The Sage Says: [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 4 June 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 scribbllngs. 1 have a friendly feeling for my correspondents, even though one reqds a certain column one way and another. Let us have still another interpretation—the writer’s. I seem to have been taken seriously when I only meant to be entertaining. Surely no one takes the Rubaiyat seriously, even though the Tentmaker said in his 56th quatrain: For “Is” and “Is Not” though with Rule and Line, And “Up-and-down” by Logic I define. Of all that one should care to fathom, I Was never deep in anything i but —Wine. ♦ * * * ' Dear Pat: I’m getting short of copy paper. I was about to write on the back of my laundry bill, but when I realized that it was sure to get into type and go into this column, I refrained, for your readers would care little how many pairs of this and ...

Campaign Of Minute Men Closes Theatres Offer To Help In Final Drive For War Bond Pledges [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 4 June 1942
Campaign Of Minute Men Closes Theatres Offer To Help In Final Drive For War Bond Pledges The house-to-house campaign of the Minute Men will end Thursday night, June 4, 'when all volunteer workers turn in their war bond pledges obtained in this manner. Thousands of Minute Men and Women have been knocking on doors all over the Southland. Many times the same door has been knocked on more than once without success no one being home. These absentees run into the thousands, a vast field of untouched bond buyers who have never had a chance to sign a pledge to help Uncle Sam. Through shortage of Minute Men in some districts other thousands were not contacted. Appreciating this situation, and with a generous offer to remedy the matter, Dave Bershon, chairman of the theatre committee of the Minute Men drive, has offered the use of more than 200 theatres in the Los Angeles area in a cleanup campaign. Associated with Bershon in this move are the managers of all the theatres in his group, compri...

She was born in Indiana and as a blushing bride traveled to Missouri in a covered wagon where she lived until coming to California. “My father was Peter Piper,” says Mrs. Swinney, “although I’m not quite sure that he is the Peter Piper who picked a peck of pickled peppers.” In addition to her daughter, Mrs. Kempf, Mrs.- Swinney h...

Local Communities Forgotten Reduction In Light Rates Will Not Benefit This Area [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 4 June 1942
Local Communities Forgotten Reduction In Light Rates Will Not Benefit This Area Although he sent a scorching letter of criticism to the City Council because it had passed an ordinance reducing lighting rates for assessment payers of ornamental street lighting systems, Mayor Fletcher Bowron at the same time permitted the ordinance to which he objected to, go into effect. The mayor had refused to sign the ordinance and by his failure to oppose or approve it, automatically permitted the rate reduction law to become operative. In a 3000-word message explaining his attitude of non-action the mayor said that an examination of the map of the city indicates that the wealthier class of people of the west side of the city will benefit by the rate cut amounting to $142,000 a year while the residents of the east side, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, San Fernando Valley and the harbor district will receive little or no benefit as there are few ornamental lighting systems there. The mayor also critici...
A PLEDGE FOR AMERICANS [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 4 June 1942
A PLEDGE FOR AMERICANS I am a citizen of the oldest republic in existence. 1 am proud of it. 1 take pride in being a free citizen in a free society, but 1 know that the priceless blessing of liberty is not a heritage, but la won afresh or lost by each generation.

I will support loyally and in friendship all the United Nations who are joined with us in this righteous compact to defeat the Axis powers. I know my country must win this war, and I will conduct myself as if I alone bore the responsibility for the victory of Democracy. In the words of a soldier of other days, "1 will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, 1 will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.” I dedicate my self to this cause....
What Do You Thinkl [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 4 June 1942
What Do You Thinkl Life Blood Thousands of persons today—as you read this—are awaiting their turn in hospital reception rooms and blood procurement centers to give a pint of their blood to protect the lives of America’s fighting men. Thanks to the wizardry of modern medical science, a new method of blood processing has been developed which is saving the lives of thousands of war wounded. Heretofore, it was necessary that the donor’s blood be similar in type to the recipient’s, a requirement that blocked the way to speedy administration of transfusions. Countless lives in World War I could have been saved if this inevitable delay for hospitalization had not been necessary. Overleaping this obstacle, the new method submits the pint of blood to a process which separates the red and white corpuscles from the liquid plasma. Afterwards placed under a temperature of 50 degrees below zero, the plasma is frozen into a solid, and later dried under high vacuum treatment until it is reduced to ...
