- Dr. A.M. Wilkinson testifies against gambling and vice before the county grand jury. During his testimony, Wilkinson admitted to accepting $4400 from "gambling czar" Guy McAfee to use as financing for "The Last Days of Pompeii" pageant presented by the Federated Church Brotherhood, of which Wilkinson was chairman. Wilkinson, who was a vice crusader, resigned from the Citizens' Independent Vice Investigating Committee after this admission. However, his resignation was denied by several Committee members, who believed that accepting the funds should not affect Wilkinson's position on the Committee.
