Above, an arresting and perhaps inflammatory title for a book that's fairly obscure today. It appears to have been written by a Swedish Christian who advocated assimilation ... The book also appears to have evoked a response from Rabbi Stephen S. Wise. Below, police chemist Ray Pinker--who figured in the 1947 Black Dahlia case--is under police guard because of his testimony in the Earle Kynette trial ... The warden of the Nebraska penitentiary gives $5 to inmates serving 10 years or longer so they can send flowers for Mother's Day--plus paper and a stamped envelope so the inmates can write letters to their moms.
