- Committee chairman Senator John J. Phillips (center) at the meeting of a joint legislative committee composed of seven Senators and eight Assemblymen, which was appointed to investigate policies and practices of the State Relief Administration. Some topics discussed at the hearing included S.R.A. funding of crossing guards, the transfer of S.R.A. headquarters from San Francisco to Los Angeles, how the S.R.A. leases quarters, and financial conditions, including the controversial 40% cut of relief checks. This last point drew picketers from the Workers Alliance, who marched outside the State Building during the committee’s S.R.A. hearings.
