Note the small item titled “’Father’ Riker Cleared,” on page 2. The lawyer who told the jury that William Riker “may be a little goofy” was Melvin Belli. For extra credit I recommend doing a search on William E. Riker of Holy City fame.

Allies Check Foe (Daniell) – 2
Enemy at Agheila Reported Jittery (Parr) – 3
War News Summarized – 3
Hitler Adds to Nazi Party’s Power in Another Move to Curb Uprisings – 4
Cruiser San Francisco Home; Took ‘Big Ones First’ in Fight (Davies) – 5-6
Allied Siege Lines Hold in New Guinea (Durdin) * – 7
Guadalcanal Job Now Held Mop-Up * – 8
The Texts of the Day’s Communiques on the Fighting in Various War Zones – 9-11

* The microfilm photo of page 6 of today’s Times was a little out of focus. Sorry.
