In the name of Los Angeles, we have something
for occultists to ponder over. The casual repeti-
tions of the word in our daily life have produced a
curious effect upon the psyche of our citizens.
As the name designates the higher order of beings,
there has developed in the unconscious of old-
time Angelenos the ineradicable conviction that
the name was prophetically given-with them-
selves especially in view.

"Johnny is a two-time loser. He just finished a
rosary. They framed him on a junk rap. Everybody
knows he's a pete. While in stir, he celled with
penny-waiters...not a real pete in the big house.
"I got a kite to-day from the grape-vine route. He
wants us to meet him with cheaters....a benny....
and a keyster. He said that we should bring along
a blot for a front. No heaters this time.
"Johnny has a layout on some swell cats...he
says the score's big.
