I have read with profound interest (and more shock) Guy Endore’s THE SLEEPY LAGOON MYSTERY.
May I have the answer to a few questions?
(1) How many of the boys are still in prison? (2) Is the committee in need of funds? (3) When is Judge Fricke up for re-election and have steps yet been taken to insure his defeat? (4) Has Mr, Endore’s story of the case been submitted to any periodicals with national circulation such as Harper’s, Atlantic, or perhaps Book Tab? (5) Are established book stores selling Mr. Endore’s booklet? (6) If you need the funds or desire wider circulation of the booklet may I offer to sell 100 copies around the CBS studios?
