Exprtned Editorially By WALTER MENDENKALL OUT IT'S TRICKY GOING " Many political band wagons roll faster through the muc than on tb« level --ELDON PEDERSON Saturday Em Foil Q UESTION? Quisling delivered his Norwegian people into political servitude to the Germans. Is a public executive, who is traveling every side alley to circumvent the wishes of his own people into economic servitude against their expressed will, - not also a Quisling? What say, Mayor Fletcher Bowron? LIE PUT IT THIS WAY " Bragging about his uncle's promotion, a small boy said: "The longer he stays in the ''Army the ranker he gets." ^ --Reader's Digest Quote UOT OUR KIND Of 11 JOURNALISM News-GrapKfc pilot was raiS' «d in the old newspaper school -- and darned p r o u d of it. Where we played up the CONSTRUCTIVE rather than the DESTRUCTIVE. Where a Boy Scout, who aided a companion, rated bigger headlines than Ingrid. (Why don't the newspapers and the courts leave Pia alone?) Where Joe Doak, who rescued a fellow miner, re ceived more column space than that millionaire sucker who got stuck on a gal, and she rapped him for scads of dough. Where a "barn-raising" captured more publicity than a Sunset Strip scrap. It all adds up to THIS: There are m a n y more good people in the world than bad, and many more good deeds done than bad, but modern journalists must consider them of no attention captivating importance. 5 c PER COPY News 5 PER COPY C 2 8 P A G E S and VALLEY GREEN SHEET Established 1911 YOUR HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER PublUhtd »T»rr Sunday morninf and Thurtda. afternoon lor NCRTHKIDGE WINNETKA SEPULVEDA SHERMAN OAKS RESEDA ENCINO VAN JCUYS CANOGA PAJK TARZANA CHATSWORTH GRANADA HULS WOODLAND HELS PANORAMA CITY Year Office: 14539 Svlvan St. Van Nuys, California, Sunday, June 29, 1952 STate 5-1131; STanley 7-1501 No. 99 Judge Relents on Tearful Plea of Young Bride-Elect Thanks to an understanding judge, Marvin E. Durment, 20, of 12168 Wicks St., Sun Valley, will wed his pretty titian-haired sweetheart next week as planned, instead of going to jail. Durment appeared Friday before Municipal Judge Parks Still^well and pleaded guilty to 11 traffic violations committed between April 1951 and March 1952. Four warrants were issued for his arrest when he failed to appear in court. Judge Stillwell imposed a sentence of S125 or 30 days in jail. Durment, apparently unable to pay, was about to be committed to jail when his fiancee, Rowena Hackney, IS, of 418 Macneil St., San Fernando, inter- . vened, pleading for him. As tears streamed down her face, she revealed that she and young Durment had planned to marry next Wednesday and the invitations to the church ceremony had already been mailed to friends and relatives. Judge Stillwell took her plea under advisement and later returned his decision saying: "Because of your fiancee and your impending marriage I am going to give you another chance. I hope that getting married to this fine young woman will make you realize that you have responsibilities. "I will suspend the sentence, but if you come in here with another ticket this year, the suspension may be revoked." I IKE THE ELEPHANT?
