LOS ANGELES TIMES & CHICAGO TRIBUNE
Still no movement in the Los Angeles Times. This "California Roll" is going to take me forever. "Granola" and "trail mix," too. The whole nine yards.
The Chicago Tribune is allegedly at January 1960, but there's a gap in 1959. I check for the word "slang."

"Retrospectives" is an historical e-newsletter from ProQuest that just arrived in the mail.
SCHOMBURG--This is a "mid-year release." So if I don't solve "hawk/Hawkins" now, it should be solved soon.
BOSTON GLOBE--Due March 2005. Which is...two weeks? Don't bet on that.
PERIODICALS CONTENTS INDEX--Full text has been expanded. I hadn't used it much, but it will be a great help if it's completed.
