April 18, 1971: Marie Stansell is honored for 25 years as a school crossing guard.
The Times never reported the outcome of charges against Frederick Krupp in the death of Officer Ferris E. Stansell.
At left, on July 11, 1941, Officer Ferris E. Stansell is killed while directing traffic near the Hollywood Bowl. His widow, Marie, takes a job as a school crossing guard. I can imagine some reporters groaning about an assignment like this: 25 years escorting kids across the street. But Donna Scheibe turns it into an interesting story.
