JURY DECIDES ROGEROS SLEW
Case in Which Mafia It Supposed to
Have "Figured Ended by Ver.
diet Against the
Guilty of manslaughter Is the ver
dict which was returned yesterday In
Judge Smith's court In the caso of
Guaata Mlstlerl, nllns Francisco
Rogerog, who wn« charged with the
murder of Jack Cresello.
,The defense rested Its ense shortly
before the noon hour, nnd the entire
day wns taken up in the argument of
the case by thn opposing counsel.
Deputy District Attorney McComas
opened In behalf of the prosecution,
and In a strong argument hn nsked the
Jury to find the defendant guilty of
murder In the first degree.
The district attorney made a strong
point on the defendant's flight from
Los Angeles January 6, the day of the
tragedy, nnd he also colled the jury's
attention to the fact that when the
defendant was placed under arrest he
admitted he had killed Creaello.
He asserted that the defendant had
leconstructed his story during his con
finement in the county Jail, which he
declared to be an omen of guilt.
Deputy District Attorney McComns
dramatically declared that the defend
ant had manufactured false evidence,
with intent to hoodwink the court and
.Attorney Scott, in behalf of the de
fendant, made n strong plea for his
client, and in the course of his argu
ment he denied the assertions made by
After deliberating less than an hour,
the jury returned a verdict of man
slaughter, the penalty for which crime
is from one to ten years' imprison
ment In the penitentiary.
Judge Smith will pass sentence on
Itogeros next Saturday.
ECHO MOUNTAIN TO BE
MADE PLEASURE RESORT
Traffic Manager McMillan of the Pa-
cific Electric Has Extensive
Plans in Mind
Traffic Manager McMillan of the Pa
cific Electric railway is going to In
ject new life into Echo mountain as a
resort. For several years the beau
tiful pavilion, which has one of the
best dancing floors in the country, has
been neglected, the bowling alley has
been closed and the tennis court aban
doned. All this is to be changed.
Workmen will put all the buildings in
perfect condition, a new electric piano
will be installed In the pavilion and
the whole place thrown open to the
free use of visitors.
The electric piano will solve the
question of music for the terpsichorean
revelers and there will be no co3t
attached. It is planned to make a
party rate of a dollar for the round
trip to Echo mountain and to have a
small restaurant installed to serve
light lunches, while more elaborate
service could readily be arranged for
in connection with Alpine tavern.
These attractions, together with the
chain) of the trip, probably will make
the resort a popular one when the new
Kite goes into effect.

Upon graduating from the 7th or Bth grade you have a fair knowl-

you take a four years' Latin or Soientifio Course you will have a
"higher" eduoation than you have now, but even that will not enable
you to draw a salary in business, for it is NOT a business eduoation.
We do not wish to divert you from a high sohool oourse if you
feel that you can afford to take it. But if you are of an inde-
pendent and money-earning turn of mind you will be interested in

Dusky Plaintiff in Divorce Court Tells
a Harrowing Tale of Wife's

Again, according to the plaintiff's
testimony, his spouse was prone to
hurl re-hot flatirons at his head.
He declared that his spouse called
him a "coon" nnd a "nigger," which
Williams says grated upon his nerves.
While living In Texas, Williams told
the court, his better, half was /i
Christian, but to the astonishment of
the court he told Judge Trask th.it
since hdr advent Into California she
had become "sanctified."
■ His spouse told him that he was a
sinner and she refused to cook his
chicken or prepare his scrambled eggs,
as a result of which Williams ate his
meals on a stump in the back yard
of his home.
Judge Trask held that the woman
was In error when she undertook to
convert her spouse by pouring forth
her eloquence and then rubbing it in
