Notices On Lot Cleaning Being Posted By City [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 26 February 1942
Notices On Lot Cleaning Being Posted By City Lot cleaning notices are being posted, and will cover approximately 100,000 vacant parcels of property in Los Angeles within the next few weeks, H. P. Cortelyou, chief engineer of the maintenance and sanitation department, announced this week. “Those lots cover about half the 450-square-mile area of the city, and they must be cleaned either by the owners or by city crews at the expense of owners between now and July 7,” Cortelyou said. The notices call attention to the fact that the city council will hear protests on March 30 against proposed adoption of the ordinance providing for compulsory clearing of the lots. Plans for the work of city crews call for either the plowing of lots overgrown with weeds and grass, or the cutting and burning of the overgrowth. The fact that city crews may work on a lot covered with growth coming after the owner may have cleaned the lot earlier in the season will prevent levying of an assessment to cover the...

What Do You Thinkl [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 26 February 1942
What Do You Thinkl They Were Here Hefore In striking out against the rumor monger, President Roosevelt was opposing more than those idle whisperings which, knowingly or not, do much to breed foolish wrangling and sour, baseless suspicions. The President’s remarks were also directed against that shortsightedness which, being an all too human failing, has never appeared—among the faint-hearted—in time of war. It is no new experience for this country. After having held together the Continental Army through six long years of war and proved, beyond doubting, his valor and skill, Gen. Washington became the intended victim of plots, hatched by several of his countrymen, to have him ousted from command. Lincoln, in the early, dark hours of the Civil War, was urged to call off the war and to make peace with the enemy before “certain defeat” broke the Union armies foi good. Today the names of our country’s enemies and allies have changed, but the advice of the fainthearted, the dispirited and...

The hit comedy, which was adapted by- two ace Hollywood scenarists, Joseph Fields and Jerome Chodorov, from the whimsical short series by Ruth McKenney in the humor magazine, The New Yorker, opened in New York on December 26, 1940, and was acclaimed by the critics for its mirth-provoking qualities. Walter Winchell wrote about it: “A honey of a show. You will enjoy every minute.” The New York Times distinguished critic, Brooks Atkinson, wrote: “A completely gay comedy. A gale of theatre laughter,” while the New York WorldTelegram suggested; ‘‘Do yourself a favor and see ‘My Sister Eileen.’ It is an uproarious side-splitting' comedy.” The comedy is concerned with Ruth and Eileen Sherwood, sisters from Columbus, Ohio, who come to New York in search of car...
