Here's an unusual election headline...

Item # 656377

November 08, 1938

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Nov. 9, 1938  The banner headline announces a local election result: "OLSON LEADS, HAM-EGGS BEATEN". Only to be found in Southern California, the "ham and eggs" movement in 1938 was a misguided attempt to provide elderly Californians with a weekly pension (see the web for more).
Included are pages 1-12 pages only of 38 pages. Very nice condition.
