Special to The Herald.
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 22.— There is a
scarcity of teachers in San Diego
county, and County Superintendent
Baldwin states that a number of school
districts have been compelled to delay
the opening of school for weeks and
months, because of the lack of teachers.
He holds that the great cause of the
lack of teachers in this state is the
usurpation by the state board of edu
cation, through gradual legislative en
actments of the constitutional rights
of the county boards and the gradual
monopoly of the certification of teach
ers by the state board. Presidient
Black of the Normal uchool, who is a
member of the state board, says that
the scarcity of teachers is due to the
fact that three of the normal schools
of the state Insist that their pupils
shall come only from graduates of high
schools and will not accept graduates
from grammar schools even after ex

WOMAN TO BLAME
FORMER BROTHERHOOD MAN
William T. Yount of Railway Train
men's Organization Brought Back
to San Bernardino— Virtually
Admits His Part In Affair
Special to The Herald,
SAN BERNARDINO, Oct. 22.—Wil
liam T. Yount, the defaulting treasurer
of Cajon Pass lodge No. 284, Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen, Is in the
county jail in this city, having been
brought here from Texas, where he was
caught by Sheriff J. C. Ralphs. Yount
disappeared over two years ago, being
short in his accounts over $300.
Yount practically admits his guilt but
lays it all to the woman with whom he
left here. He says he had confidence
in the woman and he had given her the
money to bank, but suddenly discovered
she had squandered It, and as he had
no. way by which to pay it back he
decided to flee, and took the woman
with him. He has since been in hard
lines and was recently nearly killed In
a railroad wreck. Yount will probably
plead guilty and take his punishment,
as he is anxious to have it over with
as soon as possible.
A clever crook occupies a cell in the
county Jail for working the old flim
flam game of selling a worthless dia
mond to Emil Teutschman of this city,
the worthless gem being slipped in
place of a genuine stone at the last
moment. The fraud was soon discov
ered and the reiiow caught by a deputy
sheriff as he was boarding a train at
Colton. The stranger, who gives the
name of William Marshall, was found
to be fully equipped with skeleton keys,
a "feeler" and other tools usually car
ried by the burglar craft.
Incendiary at Work
The Colton Incendiary again got in
his work last night by burning the barn
of A. D. Bailey while it was yet broad
daylight. The officers at first thought
they had caught the pyromaniae In the
person of 8-year-old Dewey Prltchard,
who at first, in reply to queries, stated
he had set the fires, but he was after
ward proven to have been elsewhere
when they occurred. The officers, how
ever, have gome good clew's on which to
work and hope to break up the gang.
It is thoroughly believed by the officers
to be the work of a gang of boys. The
Blair barn yesterday was plainly set on
fire. Kerosene was used to aid the
flames in getting a start.
The people of Colton have been much
exercised lately over the appoint
ment of a delegate to the interstate
commerce law convention, and as a re
sult E. F. Van Luven last night left for
Chicago with credentials from the Cal
ton chamber of commerce, the San
Bernardino County Fruit exchange, the
California Fruit Growers' exchange, the
Gregory Fruit company, the San Ber
nardino Merchants' association and the
Wilcox & Rose Mercantile company of
Earlier in the week J. M. Knox had
secured supposed credentials to the
convention from the chamber of com
merce but owing to his alleged connec
tion with the Southern Pacific interests
his going raised a row. Van Luven
holds credentials from the officials that
he is the only regularly appointed dele
gate. Dr. J. E. Scott is the delegate
from the San Bernardino board of trade
and also represents the San Bernardino
County Fruit exchange with Mr. Van
Luven. . _ .

from his wife, Anna M. Monkhouse, on

THAN COLLEGE FOOTBALL"
SO ASSERTS INDIANA'B FORMER
William L. Taylor Says He Is In Favor
of Permitting Battles In the Ring
Wherever Gridiron Contests Are
Allowed to Be Played
"If I had been elected governor of
Indiana I would have permitted prize
fights In this state as long as football
games . are played under the present
rules." declares John L. Taylor, for
mer attorney general of Indiana to the
"Prize fights, such as are held In some
parts of the country, are decidedly
tame affairs compared with this so
called modern football, while there is
no harm at all in boxing contests.
"I read with much interest the state
ment made by Congressman Charles B.
Landis after he had witnessed a game
of the gridiron sport.
"He says bull fights, cock fights and
dog fights are Sunday school sports
compared with football. And I guess
he Is about right.
"Think of the young men who are
laid out in nearly every game with
injuries more or less serious and some
killed or maimed for life.
"I believe In clean sport; in fact, I
am a devotee of athletic games and
sporting events that have a form of
science attached to them, or where men
are pitted against each other to test
their skill, but where is there any
glory or honor for the players in a
team that take their lives in their hands
in a football game?
"I read about the game between
Shortrldge and Rensselaer, played last
Saturday, in which two Indianapolis
boys were injured, one pf them seri
ously. I have read also about acci
dents in other games and the death list
increases, it seems, each year.
"I cannot blame President Roosevelt
for taking a hand in this gridiron sport,
to lessen the chances of injury and
eliminate the brutality of the game.
"I read Battling Nelson's version of
a football game in which he says he
prefers the 'padded mitts and a referee
who won't let an opponent kick when
the other man is down.'
"In football if a man is rendered un
conscious he is allowed two minutes to
recuperate and play again and in the
next scrimmage he may be knocked out
for good or kicked while down, as the
Shortrldge lad was treated last Sat
"In a boxing match or prize fight If a
man Is knocked down he is allowed
but ten seconds to get up and if he
takes eleven seconds he loses the con
test and furthermore he cannot be
kicked or even struck while he Is down.
"Football rules should be amended
and if this is done the Interest will be
just as keen and there will not be such
a large number of healthy and athletic
young men of the country injured or
killed each year."
"WEIGHT OF CROSS
NOT GREATEST HARM"
REV. ARTHUR S. PHELPS TELLS
• OF LIFE'S BTANDARD
Central Baptist Church Members Are
Told of the Glorious Sunshine of
the Resurrection — Says Man Is No
More Christian Than Heavenly
Rev. Arthur S. Phelps spoke yester
day morning on "The Five Togethers"
at the Central Baptist church. He
said in part:
"First *Ye died with Christ.* Christ's
standard of life is a death, and its sym
bol a cross, or, as we should say in our
day, a gallows. Ruskin says: 'We
continually talk of taking up our cross,
as if the only harm in a cross was the
weight of it— as If It was only a thing
to be carried, Instead of to be cruci
fied upon.' . The cross, borne every
day and all day, is the end of bond
age and the path to glory.
"We are burled in the likeness of
Christ by baptism into death. Peter
says 'baptism is evidwnce of a good
conscience.' Like some children, there
are Christians who say, 'Lord, I love
Thee, but I will not obey Thee." They
submit to death, but balk at burial.
How many of you live in the glori
ous sunshine of the resurrection life?
A man is no more a Christian than as
he is heavenly,' wrote Baxter. Set
your mind on the things that are above.
The Interests of the righteous dead
are in heaven.
'Your life is hid with Christ In God. 1
The secret place of the Most High
makes beautiful the public place of
the most low. Keats wrote in Endy
mion, 'Half happy, by comparison of
bliss, is miserable.'
Paul wrote the best definition of life:
•To live is Christ'— and then. capped it
by saying, 'To die is gain." He shall
wipe away every tear from their eyes;
and death shall be no more; neither
shall there be mourning, nor crying,
nor pain any more. As we mount the
bank on the other side of the river of
death ,our faces turned toward the
light of heaven's morning, the cares
that infested . earth's short day will
drop from us forever."

CONSIDERED OUT OF RACE FOR
Berkeley Stock !a Soaring and Local
Enthusiasts Will Back Blue
and Gold Against
The most active week in Los Angeles
football circles came to a close with the
defeat of the Sherman Indians by Berk
eley Saturday at Fiesta park. ■••.'..
The downfall of Hempel's braves fur
nished the second surprise of the sea
son, and two championship possibilities,
Sherman for state honors and St. Vin
cent's for the collegiate prize, have
been eradicated from the list of those
who are yet to contend with a hope
of winning the highest laurels.
Although the play of the Berkeley
team was machine-like and steady, the
pace was slow. There was little vari
ation in forwarding the ball and
straight and cross bucks rendered in
monotonous regularity made the con
test drag. Snedlgar got away between
the tackle and end in nearly all of hia
runs, the Indian ends being blocked
Sperry's hurdling became effective
more because the Indians played, if
anything, a trifle too slow than from
the work of his own line. Added to
this, the Sherman defense showed weak
and was not able to back their for
wards with any degree of success, al
lowing Sperry to make a good five or
six yards after he hurdled the line.
It is difficult to figure how the style of
play should gain much ground against
a team with the backs that Stanford
At all events, the coming of the
Cardinal eleven will give some sort
of a line on the respective merits of
the two northern teams.
The southern championship has prac
tically centered to three teams, those
of Pomona, U. S. C. and Occidental.
When Holmes took hold of his ma
terial at the beginning of the seasort
he had an unlikely looking crowd, and
the prospect appeared rather doubtful
for' the university men. At the present,
Holmes is expressing himself as confi
dent that his men will easily capture
the championship of the south and has
hopes of making the strongest kind of
a stand against Stanford.
In the games played so far, a really
strong team has not been sent against
the south end men and a comparison
with the other colleges is out of the
question until the first game with a
representative team. Holmes developed
a good team last year out of not over
promising material, and may repeat.
The university coach is in receipt
of a letter from Decoto of the Berk
eley team, agreeing to give the uni
versity eleven three hundred dollars as
expenses for a northern trip. Deeoto
has now thrown Holmes over and says
no game. The U. S. C. coach, although
able to take the money in default of
the game, states that he will let the
Stanford agreed to the same arrange
ment and U. S. C. and the Cardinals
will meet on the Palo Alto girdlron.
The high school-university game has
been called off, as Holmes does not
like fifteen-minute halves, and the high
school will not stand for a longer game.
