Special prosecutor Joseph Fainer, left, Deputy Paul Casey and George Sakalis, a key witness in the trial of Police Capt. Earle Kynette in the Harry Raymond bombing. Because of the attempts to intimidate Sakalis against testifying, Casey had been assigned to guard him, The Times said.

Also note the story about Jon Hall, whose nose was sliced open with a knife in 1944 during a fight with Tommy Dorsey on a second-floor balcony at 1220 Sunset Plaza Drive. That brawl involved Allen Smiley, who happened to be sitting on a sofa with Bugsy Siegel when something rather unfortunate happened in 1947 (hint: it involved an M-1 carbine).
