April 18, 1938


Above, fighting in the Holy Land ... Below, jury selection is nearly concluded in the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette in the Harry Raymond bombing ... Note the brief on the lawsuit brought by former child star Jackie Coogan against his mother and stepfather over the money he made as a youngster ...  Police officers capture cattle that escaped from the meatpacking plant on Macy Street (now Cesar Chavez). Humorous stories about police chasing (and sometimes killing) livestock in downtown Los Angeles were a staple of local newspapers at least through the 1940s ... In an attempt to ease traffic congestion, the city widens and extends downtown streets.

Quote of the Day: "The volume of traffic caused by the city's continued growth increases faster than outlets can be provided." -- Lloyd Aldrich, city engineer
