L.A. kidnappings, June 17, 1934

The Times publishes a stern warning to racketeers that kidnapping doesn't pay, but about the only gangland figure it mentions is Les Bruneman. The story touches on the Gordon Northcott (notice that we call him Gordon Northrop) and William Edward Hickman cases as well as some that are more obscure.  Spelling out the headline in pictures is something you don't see much these days.
