May 7, 1941: Mayor Fletcher Bowron is reelected and another Times endorsement goes down in flames.

Still recovering from surgery, Lee Shippey files  a column from the hospital, this time on nurses.

Tom Treanor, who was killed covering World War II for The Times,  notes with relief that the newsmen on the press junket to Venezuela have been joined by someone who actually speaks Spanish: Walter Kerr of the New York Herald Tribune.

Ronald Reagan's been bedded three days after being "gassed" during filming of "Flight Patrol" -- he couldn't open the cockpit hood after touching fire to oil-saturated waste, Jimmie Fidler says.
