"'We have done everything that it is within our power to do. We have cleaned up industries that other sections of the country have deemed impossible to control — steel mills, petroleum refineries, smelters, railroads, shipping. We have helped our electrical utilities obtain more gas for their steam plants. We have issued 5,000 citations in the last three years, and levied half a million dollars in fines. Despite this, we still have smog. There remains one source of air pollution beyond our power to control. Every day in Los Angeles County, 2,700,000 automobiles are burning 5 million gallons of gasoline, and fouling our air with 8,000 tons of contaminants. These emissions include: 6,400 tons of carbon monoxide, 300 tons of oxides of nitrogen and 1,050 tons of hydrocarbons."
"Moisturize your lips and we will examine the present corruption of our greatness. And see to what ends our natural riches and our freedoms have been put. This exploratory operation will be undocumented yet in its process we will see what over-weaning desire for money and comfort is doing to America ... and understand, perhaps, why beats the heart so slowly and whence comes the silver slick of cancer on the soul."
"The Maier Brewing Company started as the Ed. Preuss & Company Philadelphia Brewery in 1874. The following year, it became the D. Mahlstedt Company Philadelphia Brewery, and then the Maier & Zobelein Brewery, located in Los Angeles, in 1882. When Maier and Zobelein dissolved their partnership in 1907, the brewery became the Maier Brewing Company, located at 500 East Commercial Street, Los Angeles. Existing for several decades, the Maier Brewing Company was purchased by the General Brewing Company in 1971, but was later closed in 1974. Eastside Beer was bottled by Los Angeles Brewing Company, owned by George Zobelein, a former partner of Maier and Zobelein Brewery. After the two split in 1907, Zobelein named his new beer 'Eastside' since Los Angeles Brewing Company was located east of the Los Angeles River at 600 Moulton Avenue, and the 1920-2026 block of Main Street. The bottling facility was eventually sold and became the Pabst Brewery."
