Raymond bombing

January 23, 2008 |  7:48 am

Mayor Frank Shaw says he has the "utmost confidence" in the LAPD's investigation of the Harry Raymond bombing. He also says there is no evidence of police involvement in the blast ... Allegations of police corruption in Arcadia ... The U.S. Embassy in Nanking protests actions by Japanese soldiers--to no avail ... How to keep women happy ... And a man attempting suicide jumps from the eighth floor of the Pacific Electric Building, 610 S. Main, but is uninjured when his fall is broken by the wire mesh in a glass skylight.

Historic note: One of Mayor Fletcher Bowron's first acts after defeating Shaw in the 1938 recall election was to demand the resignation of more than 100 Shaw appointees.
