TRIBUNE DRIVER THREATENS
STORE MAN THEN MAX
ANNENBERG SQUARES IT
The next time Abe Lando, a' Trib
une driver, starts something at 3846
Fullerton av. he is going to get into,,
trouble. That is the promise made
by Milton Rawitch, who runs a news
store at that number.
According to Rawitch, Lando tried
to collect for 155 Tribunes last Sun
day morning, although Rawitch had"
only ordered 130 and had already
paid for them.
When Rawitch refused to pay,
Lando, he says, grabbed him by the
shirt, struck him several times and
tried to drag him from his store. Ra
witch kicked Lando and he let go.
Then, according to the store own
er, who says he has three witnesses,
the Tribune driver puller a revolver
and shouted: "You Jew,
I'll kill you." Rawitch's wife stepped
between Lando and her husband.
Rawitch says that Lando sat out
side the store in his auto and called
him names for almost two hours and
dared the store owner to come out
into the street, threatening to kill
him if he did.
He told a large crowd that had
gathered, attracted by his shouts,
that Rawitch would not pay his bills.
Rawitch called the Tribune yester
day and complained that he was
afraid Lando would kill him.
Max Annenberg, who is circulation
manager, went out to see Rawitch
yesterday and told him there would
be no more trouble. Annenberg and
Lando are brother-in-laws, according
to other newspaper men.

Hotel Sherman today.
The agitation for a 10-cent loaf
was started again today after bakers
laid low for two weeks, following a
statement of Congressman Rainey
that the packers owned the bakeries
and were kiting bread prices so the
high cost of meat would not be no
ticed. Until Rainey started his fight on
them demanding an investigation
that probably will never come, the
bakers were issuing daily bulletins
that they would be unable to hold out
Now that they have given Rainey's
attack time to blow over, they are
at it again. Their meeting at the
Sherman today is not to discuss
bread problems; it's just a formal
way of declaring war on the con
