Above, a snippet of the want ads. You could also hire a Japanese chauffeur or a Filipino cook, if you were looking for one. Below, bombing victim Harry Raymond takes the stand in the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette. Note that he says he never worked for Clifford Clinton or for Clinton's group, CIVIC (Citizens Independent Vice Investigating Committee). Raymond said he argued with Kynette when he tried to help his friend Ralph Gray collect a court judgment of  $2,990 from former Police Commissioner Harry Munson. If you want to know how Los Angeles government worked before the recall of Mayor Frank Shaw and the election of Fletcher Bowron, read Raymond's testimony ... Note the pope's comments on the situation in Europe: "A hell of contradictions and contrasts."

Quote of the Day: "Kynette told me that while he worked out of Chief of Police Davis' office, he actually got his orders from Joe Shaw (brother and secretary of the mayor)." --Harry Raymond
