Los Angeles Herald & Express newsboy, Frank L. Price, inaugurates his own plan for paper salvage. The first customer to turn in a back edition paper, on March 24, 1944, is Columbia's "Cover Girl," Leslie Brooks. Price figures that by collecting as many old or out-dated papers as he sells new ones, on his busy intersection of Sunset and Vine in Hollywood, his contribution in the salvage drive will average some 200 pounds a day.
