April 23, 1938


Below, the 1937 slaying of underworld figure Les Bruneman intrudes into the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette in the Harry Raymond bombing. (Pete Pianezzi, convicted of killing Bruneman at the Roost cafe, was paroled in 1953) ... Former City Atty. Erwin P. Werner and his wife are sentenced to prison on corruption charges ... On the jump, Col. Frank Knox calls for the suspension of Social Security taxes with the money going to provide jobs for the  unemployed.

Quote of the Day: "The current business slump is not a recession.... [It's a] Roosevelt depression caused by political, not economic conditions." --Col. Frank Knox
