PUPILS OF PUBLIC SCHOOL
EXHIBIT THEIR WORK
UARGE CROWDS ATTEND ANNUAL
Twenty.Elghth Btreet Institution Is
' Beene of Happy Gathering of Chil
dren and Parents— Much Talent
Shown by Youths
There were three kinds of very proud
people yesterday In the vicinity of the
Twenty-eighth street school on Ban
Pedro and Twenty-eighth streets, and
ju«t which were the proudest It would
be hard to tell.
There were the children, perhaps a.
thousand of them; the parents of these
same specimens of young America, and
the teachers who are helping to make
them men and women worthy of th«
The occasion was the annual exhibit
of the work of the pupils, and such an
exhibit as It wasl If there Is any
mother left this morning who has not
a due nnd proper respect for the knowl
edge and talents of her small daughter
or son It Is because that mother was
not one of the several hundred mothers
who visited the school yesterday.
The minute one went In sight of the
building It was evident that It was no
ordinary occasion, for everywhere were
sigtis of the work of the children.
Flaming Japanese lanterns hung In
every window and Old Glory In many
different sizes and stages was waving
in. every available spot. In -the halls
there were ferns, pictures and flags.
In the rooms of the two buildings
which are devoted to the grammar and
primary grades there were especially
pretty decorations. Great ropes of sml
lax in some and of Ivy in others. Quan
tities of yellow mustard formed a back
ground for the exhibit of class work.
Many Pretty Exhibits
Every one had something to exhibit,
from the little lisping tot In the kinder
garten with her sunbonnet baby, which
she "dawd all by herself," to the girl
of the sixth and eighth grades, who
displayed with the greatest of house
wifely pride dainty bits of cookery
which looked tantalizlngly inviting. In
the kindergarten rooms there were all
sorts of pretty attempts at decoration
by the little ones who are just learning
to draw and cut papers Into queer little
shapes and do all the other things
known only In kindergarten land. In
the second, third and fourth grades |
there were Indian basketry work and
card board sloyd models and numerous
maps and sketches of wild flowers done
in dainty water colors. Besides these
there were straight lines of spelling
papers, not a word missed and such
neat figures that many a man would
think of his ledger in the office and
blush for shame. In the fifth grade
rooms, where sewing is taught
for the lirst time, there were
models showing stitches so neat that
they might have been made by a ma
chine. the».Blxth grade the girl be
gins to learn" how to put on patches
and to darn, and the' models from this
class were a surprise 'to all. The
seventh and eighth grades are the ones
in which cooking- Is taught, and In
these rooms there were tables laid in
the most approved fashion ready for
luncheon and laden with everything
good to eat. Crusty loaves of bread,
tiny lemon pies, salads, cakes, vegeta
bles and even candy were all exhibited,
and the guests confessed a great dif
ficulty in keeping their hands off.
The work of the sloyd classes was ex
hibited in the hall and here the boys
presided In a manner quite befitting;
their importance. They exhibited towel
racks and match boxes as If they were
old hands at the business. The teachers
had a busy day receiving the guests,
and congratulations came for them on
The members of the Child Study cir
cle also took a great Interest in the
event, and are planning a celebration
of the success at a social meeting to be
held next Wednesday afternoon.

by about noon, when Brown invited
them in. He was sociable, invited
them to dinner and bought wine.
About 2 o'clock Mrs. Moore went to
her home and on returning at 6 o'clock

Brown in a drunken sleep.

at 8 o'clock Mrs. Hoke expressed a de
sire to go. home. It was found that the
door was locked and the key lost.
Brown became angry. He opened the
window and told Mrs. Hoke to go out
that way. . As she did not move with
sufficient rapidity to suit him, Brown
struck her over the head with a heavy
chair. Mrs. Hoke suffered greatly
from Brown's blow and went home to
■In about two hours Brown appeared
and pushed in at the front door. "Give
me my five dollars!" he yelled, as he
fell upon the woman on the bed, beat-
Ing her with his fists. He then threw
her to the floor and kicked her repeat
edly, she protesting: that she knew
nothing of the money. Mrs. Moore,
finding she could do nothing with
Brown, ran to a neighbor's house and
telephoned the police.': 'y^r'
Dr. Gpclrenauc gave expert testi

more than pleased because of the im

property to Martin Thomas. Thomas
was found dead ten days later near the
cabin, having evidently committed sui
cide. The will disappeared and so far
as any statement of the public adminis

Innes' Farewell Concert
"Americana," presented a second time
In Los Angeles last evening, drew an
Hudlenee that crowded Temple audi
torium for the farewell- appearance of
Innes an*d his band. The 1300 persons
turned bwbv last week apparently made
a second attempt to see and hear the
allegory of the Civil War, made Into
what Innes culls a "musical spectacle."
Although the program of lust week
was repeuted, one new feature, not ar
rauged by the famous band conductor,
whs Introduced with much success. The
'May festival chorus presented a hand
some rug to Mr. Innes, who received It
with the surprised uppreclatlon he al
ways expresses when it la evident thut
hla bund has pleused an audience.
Of course there was enthusiasm when
the military pageant added realism to
the musical pictures of wari . The Q, A.

as they followed the fife. and drum

with better effect than at any of the
previous concerts. The band was ap
plauded until Innes must have been
weary acknowledging the demands for

concert was a success that will Insure
a welcome whenever the 'band returns
to Los Angeles.
Lott. Rogers Concert
Doblnson auditorium was crowded
Inst evening when the sixth concert
of the Lott-Rogers series was given.
The last program of the season whs a
song recital In which Harry Clifford
Lott displayed a versatility surprising
t-ven to those familiar with the many-
Hided talent of this baritone ulnger to
whom supreme attainment In his art is
Mr. Lott began with his seventh
century Italian songs, which were ex
quisite In their delicate shadlnßS.
"Die Malnacht," the Brahms number,
caused an enthusiastic demonstration.
Schubert's "Heldenrosleln" and "Die
Mr. Lott has a big voice of extraor
dinary compass. It would be remark
able even If it had not a peculiar
quality that makes it one of the rarest
of baritones. It Is beautlful'in every
tone and In power It Is like a mighty
river of sound. Best of all, Mr. Lott
has a technique that enables him ; to
make the most of a marvelous natural
gift. He Is an artist so' sincere, so
modest and so Intelligent that the
greatest things are possible for him
in the line of musical achievement.
Two numbers proved him great as a
singer of oratorios. One was Schu
bert's "Die Allmacht" and the other
was "Is Not His Word Like. a Fire,"
There was a special Interest In the
last part of the program upon which
four local composers were represented.
Two songs, "Meerescheimweh" , and
"Fur Dich," by Waldo F. Chase, were
exquisitely set and they were sung
with the finest . feeling. Frederick
Stevenson's "I Love Thee" was one of
the most applauded numbers.' Both
the words and music are by Mr. Stev
enson, who has produced a poem .of
distinct literary value and then at
tached to It a melody worthy of as
sociation with his verses. "Good Day,
Susanne," a song in which Henry Ed
mond Earle has used a little poem by
de Musset In a manner that- brings out
unsuspected dramatic possibilities, was
one of the distinctive numbers on the
program. It is a charming little song
and Mr. Lott made the most of It.
"Constancy" and "Inconstancy," by
Mrs. Monlmla Laux Botsford, closed
the program. Both these songs are
of real musical value.
Mlbs Blanche Rogers accompanied
Mr. Lott and to her the singer owed
much of his success for this popular
artist is one of the few pianists who
understands how to sustain and to as
sist a voice. - After the concert Miss
Rogers and Mr. Lott , were called out
