MR. ZEEHANDELAAR RETURNS
FROM THE EAST
Secretary of Merchants and Manufac.
turers' Association Brings Flatter-
Ing Reports of Outlook for Big
Gathering of Potentates
An army of twelve thousand Shrlners
will descend upon Los Angeles the first
week in May, the occasion being the
convention of the Shriners, which will
be held Sn Los Angeles from May 7
Mr. F. J. Zeehandelaar, secretary of
the Merchants and Manufacturers" as
sociation, has Just returned from an ex
tenrive trip through the east and he
reports the greatest enthusiasm in re
gard to the coming convention.
To quote his own words, "The great
problem that Los Angeles will have to
solve, is, how the delegates to the con
vention ar<? to be accommodated, not
how we are to get them out here.
"Many of the Shriners of the east
look upon the convention merely as a
good excuse for coming out to Califor
nia. The number of Shriners that Los
Angeles will have to provide accommo
dations for will be not less than 12,000,
and that does not include their wives
and other tourists who will take the
opportunity of the low rates which will
be given on the railroads of coming
"During my visit In the east I called
upon more than five hundred poten
tates of the Mystic Shrine. And they
all unite in saying that the Los An
geles convention will exceed in size
any other that has ever been held, by
300 per cent. It will be the most Im
portant convention both In point of size
"The Shriners of Plttsburg have had
a post card made, upon which Is en
graved 'Ho for Los Angeles.' The
widest circulation is being given to
that and nlso to other forms of liter
ature boosting our city.
East Admires Los Angeles
"Los Angeles Is looked upon In the
east as the most prosperous and pro
gressive city in the United States. This
convention will be the greatest ad
vertisement for Los Angeles that ever
has been given it.
"I have received compliments wrthout
number on the manner Broadway 1b
lighted. There is no thoroughfare in
the United States that ia bo thoroughly
illuminated as our street of Broadway.
"Preparations must be begun immed
iately for the lodging and entertain
ment of our guests. The hotel facilities
of Los Angeles will be swamped many
times over. The entertainment com
mittee proposition is not so hard to
dispose of, for the Fiesta de las Flores
will be held during their stay and that
will of itself constitute entertainment.
But we purpose to have something
doing all the while.
"From the moment the Shriners ar
rive in Los Angeles till the last one
of them takes the train for home, all
sorts and descriptions of amusements
will be provided for them.
"I have engaged the foremost man
in America to take charge of the
Fiesta parade. Spencer Robinson of
London, England, who. I believe, is a
genius in his profession. His floats
designed for the parade of the priests
of Pallas in Kansas City early this
month were marvelously beautiful. One
in particular was illuminated with 1500
colored electric lights and bore an im
mense American eagle formed with
Enthusiasm In the East
"The principal cities which I visitei
during my trip east were Kansas City,
Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, Salt Lake
City and Pittsburg. The enthusiasm
that has been aroused over the coming
convention is marvelous, and we do not
purpose to disappoint any one. The
electric display parade, arranged by
Spencer Robinson, will be given three
nights. But the flower parade, which
takes place May 11, will only be held
on that date.
"Booklets are being sent out by Tem
ples all over the United States, and
the burden of them all is 'Don't fall to
go to Los Angeles.'
"Although the convention will be In
session only two days, we are going
to keep the Shriners here for the whole
week. And we must rely, of course,
on the people of Los Angeles to sup
port the chamber of commerce in its
effort to raise funds for the Fiesta."
Mr. Zeehandelaar is already at work
on the plans for the Fiesta, and there
is no doubt that it will be the most
beautiful^that has ever been held.

Louis Molinar was taken to the re

from cuts he alleges to have received
from hiß son-in-law, James Ramirez.
After an investigation of the affair by

The police say that Molinar, who was
intoxicated, was amusing himself by
beating his wife, when Ramirez entered
and took a hand. Ramirez ordered
Mclinar to stop striking his mother-in

Trouble followed and Ramirez struck
Molinar over the head with a club, in

TOO MUCH MARRYING
Mount Holyoke Professor Bays College
Is Not the Place to Fix Girl
for Wedded Life
Sdpcl.il to The Herald.
BOSTON, Oct. 22.— Miss Kate Gordon.
A. M., Ph. D., professor ot psychology
In Mount Holyoke college, openly and
emphatically takes Issue with the Pres
ident and other advocates of "anti-race
suicide" and declares that there is al
together too much marrying and giv
ing in marriage, and that "we must
remember that reproduction of children
is too often a vain repetition." miss
Gordon's views were advanced In a lec
ture before the New England Associa
tion of Colleges and Preparatory
Schools, and her utterances were openly
approved by a number of other teach
ers, among them being Prof. Herbert
B. Mills of Vassar, who declared that
he heartily approved every statement
made by her.
The first surprise in Miss Gordon's
lecture came when she said that the
college is not the place to fit a girl for
married life. "The wedded state," sh«
said, "Is an occupation, Just as much
as is civil engineering, and the college
Is a place to cultivate character and
Judgment. Although It will be true al
ways that the greater number of
women will elect the domestic career,
yet I cannot but think that the super
lative fascination of that estate has
been by recent writers and thinkers a
trifle overworked. Sentiment aside for
a moment, is not matrimony, the most
precarious business in the world? :
"The matrimonial returns, not to
mention the vagaries of affection, are
notoriously disproportionate to a
woman's efficiency. If It be the busi
ness of a domestic woman to rear a
large family of children, we must ac

goods is Inversely proportional to her

fallacy of supposing there is something
intrinsically desirable in a mere quan
tity of human beings? As Jane Austen
says: 'A family of ten children will
always be called a fine family, wher*
there are heads and arms and legs
enough for the number.' We must re
member that reproduction in too pfte«i
a vain repetition. Why repeat until
we have something worth while? In
deed, I would almost say that a woman

We should have more respect for mat

POLICE ARE PUZZLED
BY AN AUTO MYSTERY
TWO MEN ABANDON MACHINE
Carrying Satchels, They Drive at High
Speed to Avenue 21 and Manitou
Avenue and Board a Near-by Car.
Officers Now Investigating Case
Strange actions of two men, who
drove a Cadillac runabout at a furious
speed to Avenue Twenty-one and Man
itou avenue Saturday afternoon, took
two small satchels, abandoned the ma
chine, boarded a near-by car and dis
appeared, have interested the police
greatly and yesterday led to the be
ginning of a thorough investigation.
It was found shortly after the of
ficers were detailed on the case that
the two men who are said to have
been suspicious looking characters,
passed through Pasadena earlier in
the day driving the car at mad speed.
One officer who was off duty got a
fair look at the men as they were
passing when near the city limits and
it may lead to their arrest.
On the rear of the machine was the
number 356, which is the license num
ber belonging to W. S. Kelly of Oak
land. The number is painted on a card
and leads to the belief that it had been
appropriated by the men who last
drove the machine and did not wish
to be recognized.
According to residents in the district
the men drove up to the curbing on
Avenue Twenty-one near Manitou
avenue. They were both dressed in
long auto coats, leather caps and
their faces were closely muffled. While
one man worked with the runabout
the other hastily arranged their few ef
fects. The men and the machine both
had the appearance of having trav
eled some distance. It was found that
in leaving the machine the men ex
tracted a small bolt which impaired
the machine temporarily. The auto
was taken to the city Jail where it
will ho held until its owner can be
Telegraphic advices from Oakland do
not clear up the mystery of the car in
the least. Automobile 356 is registered
as belonging to Kelly, but he said that
the number on his car had been 354,
but the car was incorrectly numbered.
A short time ago he sold the car to a
Mrs. Dumouriez. However, he is un
nble to say whether she has changed
the number on the car.
Automobile license 354 belongs to
Barney Ransom of Oakland. < Ran

Dr. Leonard show that the milk that

Two causes are given for this. At
the meeting of the city council last
Monday an ordinance was passed on
recommendation of the board of health
that all milk wagons be covered and
all milk thoroughly cooled before be

that the same conditions should exist
in delivering milk to consumers.
While this ordinance has not yet be
come fully operative, the dairymen are
preparing to meet the new order of
things, and to that end have volun
tarily complied with the law.
As a result, readings from some of
the most prominent dairies show a
lower count of bacteria than ever be
fore. The ordinance allows for a count
of 600,000 to the cubic centimeter, but
some of the dairies have reached a de
gree of perfection where the count is
almost as low as 100,000.
The milk from ten dairies was found
to exceed the count, some running into
millions, and in others the bacteria is
so numerous that an accurate count Is

British Expert Warns People of

LONDON, Oct 22.— Secure as the

Sir James Crichton-Browne, vice-pres

He was presiding at the reopening of
the Charing Cross Hospital Medical
school and was speaking on the sub

"It was indubitable," he said, "that
there was a deplorable amount of de

munl«ipal administration and our
army, all were Inefficient. An encour

Should this prove to be so. and
should the Chinese brain be found to
participate in the characteristics of
that of Japan, then the yellow peril is
not a mere bogy, but in some form
or other a possible contingency."

"DRY WINTER" PROPHECY
MAY NOT BE FULFILLED
RAINY SEASON OPENS SEVERAL
WEEKS IN ADVANCE
Indications Are Hopeful That Rain
maker Is Mistaken In His Belief
That Present Year Will be Dry,
Except for Artificial Precipitation
Hatfleld's prophecy that the coming
winter is going to be the "dryest wet
season" Southern California has yet
experienced, fails to give promise of
being fulfilled. For. already some weeks
before the regular opening period of
the wet season, Los Angeles has re
ceived a visit from the elements, which
last year Hatfield clearly demonstrated
he manipulated, when he, for the insig
nificant sum ofJIOOO, caused a precipita
tion of some eighteen inches. What
may have been the ■ cause of this pre
mature visit of Hatfield's subjects we
can only conjecture. It may be that
some one maliciously "doped" his "dope
sheets," or It may be that some one
geared up the wheel works of Hat
fleld's machinery, however, the fact
remains that there was a precipitation
of. eight one-hundredths of an inch of
rain Saturday night. ■ > •
Hatfield has been sojourning in the
vicinity of Riverside for the past few
weeks, and it may be that in his ab
sence, his liquid subjects became a
little uneasy, fearing that he might
forget himself and remain away a little
overtime, and in dweling upon this
thought and of their last year's bril
liant record, became a little too am
bitious and carrae around ahead of
scheduled time. This, according to the
official rainmaker Franklin, is the case,
as there was absolutely no premonition
of the occurrences of Saturday night.
With the start made so far, it ap
pears that Hatfield very likely will
keep up his last year's record. Accurate
figuring shows that he will have given
us the standard measure of eighteen
inches in a few days less than last
year's time. However, Mr. Franklin
is slightly skeptical about this point,
he only says:
"I am unable to say that there will
be a succession of showers from this
time on, yet it is to be expected that
Saturday's sprinkle will be followed by
more of them as the month advances.
We'll see. though."
