NEW YORK TIMES, JUNE 14, 1943
ZOOT SUIT FRONT QUIET
LOS ANGELES, June 14 – Navy men, for whom Los Angeles has been out of bounds since last Tuesday, will have the freedom of the city again after tomorrow noon as the result of the almost complete absence of clashes over the weekend between young wearers of “zoos suits” and members of the armed forces.
Rear Admiral David W. Bagley, commandant of the Eleventh Naval District at San Diego, announced this evening that the restrictive order would be lifted. He had telegraphed Flavor Fletcher Bowron that he contemplated doing so in view of favorable reports, but he first sought the Mayor’s recommendation. The Mayor said he felt assured that order would be maintained.
