Larry Harnisch reflects on Los Angeles history

March 30, 1938


Above, The Times editorial page opposes allowing wholesale immigration of German and Austrian Jews to America. The Times notes that they would be penniless and that many of them would either go on welfare or take jobs from Americans. Instead, The Times says, let them go to South America ... if the South American nations want them. Unfortunately, the anonymous authors are not available to atone for this piece. Below, Earle Kynette claims he conferred with anti-vice crusader Clifford Clinton and his attorney over a possible defense. Alas, we did not contact Clinton for a comment. Bonus fact: Kynette is being held in the same cell block as convicted killer Robert "Rattlesnake" James, who was the last man to be executed by hanging in California.
