Sept. 23, 1959: To folks who think traffic in Los Angeles is a new problem, please read the stories on 1) freeways 2) new buses 3) moving sidewalks. Bonus story 4) drunk drivers.
|Matt Weinstock on the complaint that teachers spend too much time maintaining order in the classroom and too little time teaching. "And yet I happen to know that on the third day of school a knife with a 3-inch blade was taken from an arrogant 9-year-old by a child welfare and attendance officer, who says grimly: "It looks like another tough year."
And you thought the 1950s were a kinder, simpler time.
