Feb. 22, 1941: Los Angeles gets nearly 2 inches of rain in 24 hours, leaving Reseda and Canoga Park virtually cut off because of rising floodwaters, The Times says.

Dr. E.H. Pitts of Sacramento writes a letter to The Times praising countries with sterilization laws that “prevent the birth of babies doomed to lives of misery. These nations  act similarly with their criminals, their blind, their carriers of other inherited diseases.”
Tom Treanor is off again today, so we have another column by Lee Shippey, author of “It’s an Old California Custom” and “Luckiest Man Alive,” among many other books.  Shippey talks about writer Robert Sherwood, whose play "There Shall Be No Night” was about to open.

Hit Parade: "Andy Hardy's Private Secretary." Topper of the Hardy Family series, made more important by the debut of a sure-fire coming star, Kathryn Grayson, Jimmie Fidler says.
