LOS ANGELES

K. E. Sedlacek, who formerly did an exclusive manufacturing business at 821 Santee St., but after the opening of the big Ambassador Hotel secured a concession for a retail business there, has given up the hotel part of his business and returned to the manufacturing plant on Santee St. Like a number of other concessionaires he found the rent too high to enable him to continue at the hotel.
