Mayor Cragin and the Keno Game
The Mayor Ernie Cragin decides to ban keno, a sort of lottery. But in the next year he will change his mind, voting to reopen this game.

Nazism Begins to Unveil its Face
On February 27 the Reichstag building is burned completely, likely by the Nazists. But the Communists are accused instead, and the Nazi Party starts a strong repression.
In spite of the very intensive propaganda, at the elections of March 5 the Nazi Party reaches only the 44%, and must form a coalition with the Nationalist Party.
But a few days after Adolf Hitler proclaims the Enabling Act, with which he starts his dictatorship. This year sees also the first laws against Jewish people.

Spain: Toward the Civil War
In the November elections a coalition of Falangists (fascists) and other right parties goes to the power.
In the past years a leftish government has put restrictions on the Church properties, and has found the opposition of Catholics.
The new rightish president, Alejandro Lerroux Garcia, stops reforms of the previous government and sends troups of the Civil Guard against people in revolt.

The Austria of Dollfuss
Engelbert Dollfuss, the Austrian chancellor, tries at the same time to protect Austria against a German Anschluss (i.e. Annexation), and to fight socialists.
He organizes a sort of Nationalist putsch, suspending the parliament activity and deciding a series of restrictions against his political ennemies.

The Beauty and the Beast
The movie ''King Kong'' appears this year. In the movie, a gigantic ape threatens New York before bein captured.
Another landmark is the movie ''Bombshell'', a satire of the star system interpreted by Jean Harlow, a platinum-blonde sex symbol.
