The Sage Says: [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 5 March 1942
The Sage Says: By CLYDE BROWNE The above presumptuous title represents the opinion of the publisher of this paper, and not the writer of this column, who holds that .modesty Is a virtue should prevail In any Itinerant scribbllngs. It would be interesting to know just how many little, squint-eyed men Japan has under arms. You hear stories about their great numbers. Some guess as many as 10 millions. Of course the Japs will not say, nor will our intelligence department, but do not fool yourself by thinking our government doesn’t know. The'F.B.l. probably knows the number fully as well as the Illegitimate son of Heaven himself. We can do a little conjecturing. If there are 90 millions of Japs still unhung, half of that number must be females, which leaves 45 millions. Half of those are probably under 15 years and over 55, which leaves about 23 millions. Knock off maybe 3 millions for Inmates of prisons and asylums and but 20 million are left. Deduct about 25 per cent of them who are th...

Home of E. O. Both Broken Into Last Sunday Night [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 5 March 1942
Home of E. O. Both Broken Into Last Sunday Night Between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. last Sunday, burglars broke into the home of Edwin O. Both, 2033 Rome Drive. Mr. Both is a former Highland Park policeman, but last month he enlisted in the forces of our Uncle Sam and is now stationed at Forth McArthur. The burglars were evidently aware of Mr. Both’s former occupation and his affairs generally, for they took only his two police guns and holsters and some ammunition for them, apparently not interested in other things of value, though they upset the house in their search. The loss is fully covered by insurance placed through the office of L. C. ReCount.

The Public Affairs Committee has been in existence since January Ist, 1940 and has quietly been working uncovering basic data and facts about local city and county government. These are now the basis for the Committee’s weekly broadcast over station KMTR “Top of the Dial” at 7:15 to 7:30 each night Monday through Saturdays, six nights a week. Already the committee has brought the demand that the 1942 Grand Jury be called into session immediately to hear charges against Roy Hampton and Foreman Theodore F. Pierce of the 1941 Grand Jury on charges of conspiracy to violate their oaths of office.

Freeway Traffic Plan Postponed For Six Months [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 5 March 1942
Freeway Traffic Plan Postponed For Six Months The joint Public Works and State and County Committees of the City of Los Angeles have delayed any action on this major traffic plan for six months. It was the effective efforts of the People’s Transit Council (Joy A .Winans, president) which forestalled the adoption of this plan without sufficient public hearings. The help of Councilman Thrasher in this matter should not be overlooked, inasmuch as it was the resolution proposed by him which gained the public hearing, with the result that the plan was not accepted by the joint committee for a report. It is to. be hoped that Highland Pari will -not become involved in another "Arroyo Seco’’ proposition, i.e., pay for something which the majority of its people are to use.

No Substitution of Busses At This Time Says Commission Head [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 5 March 1942
No Substitution of Busses At This Time Says Commission Head President Justus Craemer of the State Railroad Commission issued a statement on Tuesday, March ?, which declared that no further substitution of busses for street cars will be granted until the tire shortage situation has been fully surveyed. It appears that this ruling will diaffect the “W” line. It is to be much deplored that a small minority of Highland Park citizens have helped so to protract the proceedings that the proposed plan to put busses into Highland Park is now of no avail—for the j&amp;esent, at least. As it is, because of the action of this small—very small minority, Highland Park will have to get along with the familiar street cars for quite some time; possibly “for the duration.” Commissioner' Ray Riley, with Commissioners F. Tavenner, J. Craemer, C. C. Baker, and R. Sachse, on Monday, March 2, heard oral arguments by attorneys for the Pacific Electric Railway, the cities of Los Angeles, Pasadena, S...

What Do You Think? [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park Post-Dispatch — 5 March 1942
What Do You Think? iVo Temporizing With Treachery! Boldly, contemptuously, Robert Noble stood before California legislators last week and gloated over the graves of American boys struck down by international treachery at Pearl Harbor: “The Japanese did what was the proper thing under the exigencies of the occasion”! He belittled the glorious Thermopylae of Mac Arthur and his men as “a futile thing.” He jeered: “Germany has won this war and we might as well recognize the new order. I am for Germany and for Hitler.” Noble spoke as director of the “Friends of Progress,” a subversive organization smoked out by the American Legion and the FBI in California. California remembers Robert Noble as a director a few years ago of the “ham and eggs” pension scheme. Then he and his clique boldly and contemptuously attacked and smeared much that Americanism means. It was one thing for tolerant, lax, incredibly soft America of the peacetime years to permit Robert Noble and his kind, freedom to snip...
