Above, the defendants and their attorneys in the Harry Raymond bombing ... At left, more angry exchanges between Deputy Dist. Atty. Eugene Williams and Police Capt. Earle Kynette ...

Also: The mayor of Santa Monica, accompanied by police, orders the gambling ship Rex to cease operations. The order also applies to water taxis ferrying people to the ship ... A furious brawl breaks out between strikers and police at the Goodyear plant in Akron, Ohio, injuring more than 100 people ...  And Congress begins the investigation of un-American activities after Rep. Martin Dies (D-Texas) reports on gatherings of Nazi sympathizers in the U.S. At one Nazi "camp," a speaker advocated the assassination of President Roosevelt, Dies says, without identifying the camp or the speaker.

On the jump, extensive quotes from Kynette's testimony under questioning by Williams.
