- Agnes Thorsen appears in court as a witness in the "white flame" murder trial. Paul A. Wright, Thorsen's former employer, was charged with the murder of his wife and best friend in his Glendale home. Wright claimed to be not guilty by reason of insanity, as a "white hot rage" supposedly overtook him when he witnessed his wife and best friend purportedly embracing while sitting together on the piano bench. Thorsen testified that she had no knowledge of the Wrights quarreling while she was under their employ in early 1937.
