Mrs. Rae Copley Raum.
San Diego, "Cal., July 6.
'A woman wants ,to be mayor of
San Diego. She is the first wo
man candidate for such a posi
tion in California since' women
gained the right to vote. Her
name Is Mrs. Rae Copley, sister
of Ira Clifton Copley, U. S. con
gressman from Illinois, and sister-in-law
of CqI. D. C. Collier,
president of the Panama-California
Exposition, to be held in San
Diego in 1915. She is a promi
nent club-woman, a D. A- R-. and
is actively engaged in philan
A novel plank in Mrs. Raum's

can "be -cured. I would not allow,
a rich man to do what was denied
to a member of the I. W. W. The
laws should be enforced but
they should be enforced impar

Use the red portion of the

and lemon juice may be added,
