Circus pays man for elephant bite; Angels win in 12th, August 6, 1938

Jimmy Johnston gives boxer Bob Pastor some tips for his upcoming bout against Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom ... Jack Oakie and his wife are headed for divorce ... and the Angels -- the Los Angeles Angels -- win against the San Francisco Seals.




Here's a fun discovery. See if you can find the unknown movie star on this page ... Supervisor John Anson Ford withdraws from the recall election against Mayor Frank Shaw ... Superior Court Judge Fletcher Bowron is suggested as a replacement, but he is opposed by organized labor, The Times says ... And a jury decides an elephant bite is worth $4,500 ($64,347.92 USD 2007).


Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom and Bob Pastor fight to a draw at Gilmore Stadium. Buried way down in the type: Herbie Katz "New York Hebrew" defeats Chester Parks "Los Angeles Negro" in an "eight-round slugaroo" ... And Bob Feller walks 11 batters.

The answer to your question, is Gwen Verdon. She was married to Bob Fosse.

That's Gwen Verdon hiding in plain sight in the beauty contest. Strangely, she claimed a birth year of 1925. Could she be 13 in that photo?

Claire James, Miss Hollywood.
