Dropcap_c_1887 orrect me if I'm wrong, but this plane at left looks like a DC-4E. Either that or a very weird B-17 with six engines and the tail of a constellation.  Times staff writer James Bassett takes a look at the "flying dreadnought" being built by Douglas ... (My, is that a hed bust on Page 1? Oops!)

Also: A hiker finds the remains of an airliner that crashed in March during a flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles ... the former French premier says France is ready to mobilize if Germany invades Czechoslovakia ...   Rudolf Hess accuses Czechoslovakia of being a menace to the peace of Europe ... And 30 prisoners at Lincoln Heights jail become ill from food poisoning -- either because of the lima beans or the rice pudding.
