NotesMarch 6, 1931, "Kansas City Journal-Post" features a photo of George Cauthen with this caption: "George Cauthen, Journal-Post photographer, who was cursed and struck by former Sen. James A. Reed last night after he had taken a picture in the criminal court room where the Bennett trial was held. Cauthen, who is 30 years old, made no attempt to strike back at Reed, who is 69."
