Aug. 17, 1960: A motorist wins a battle over a parking ticket (it wasn’t filled out properly) … and one Whittier market has such a problem with kids stealing cigarettes it doesn’t even bother to report them.

CONFIDENTIAL TO UPSET MOTHER: The least lovable child needs the most love. Force yourself.

Also on the jump: Some employers are switching to staggered work hours in an attempt to ease traffic on the freeways. Yes, this is 1960 and yes, freeway traffic was a problem 50 years ago.  And yes, this is when Los Angeles still had streetcars (d 1963).
