May 2, 1938


Above, a waitress from the Red Parrot Cafe is thrown from a speeding car at Sunset Boulevard and Spring Street ... Below, engineers are working on ways to prevent flood damage by the Los Angeles River. In addition to experiments in forest areas to learn more about debris from mountain watersheds, workmen at Soto Street are excavating the river bed and lining the channel with concrete ...  The trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette resumes after a weekend break ... The court begins examining prospective jurors to determine if they can read and write and whether they know enough English to understand legal proceedings. 

Quote of the Day: "For instance, a prospective juror is given the word 'larceny' and then requested to say which of the following terms has a like meaning: large opening, theft, Swedish and market."
