“North county residents today were puzzled as to what meaning, if any, could be attached to the burning of a huge fiery cross, for two hours last night, on a tract of land opened recently in the northeast section of Richfield. The subdivision was understood to have been opened exclusively to Mexicans. Made of iron pipe and wrapped with oily sacking, the cross, said to have been sixteen feet high, burned out unmolested. Several men were reported to have watched the flames at close hand, but none could give details as to how the flaming torch was placed, it was said.”
