(Continued from Page One) ;
the fourth car was "composed of Capt.
J. M. Bowyer of tho Illinois, Capt. W.
H. H. Southerland of the New Jersey,
Joseph Scott and Oscar Lawler. _
It was when Pasadena was reached
that the real strenuoslty begun. There
the cars were pelted with flowers, flags
were waved from every front yard,
children showered bouquets and sang
national songs In every block and the
whole city was aroused. The climax
came when the cars reached the beau
tiful Hotel Maryland for lunch. There
the officers were captured by scores of
pretty girls, who strewed roses before
them as they advanced under the*
canopy and who pinned boutonlerres on
their coats, chatted with them and
then sent them to tho dining room.
. The luncheon consisted of clam cock
tail, cold roast pork, tongue and ham.
hot chicken croquettes, Ice cream and
coffee and was served In genuine Mary
la At concluslon Admiral Thomas
At Its conclusion Admiral Thomas
made a brief speech, expressing the
gratitude of the officers for their royal
Entertainment in Southern. California
and pledging eternal fealty for them.
The lunch ended by Mayor Earley call
ing for a toast to the officers in genera
and those, who. In Particular,
"make souvenirs of the Spanish ships
at Manila." All rose and drank the
toast and- cheered as they dispersed.
Smothered with Flower*
As the officers left the dining room
they met the enemy and fell one by one
as the rain of flowers met them. They
passed out of the hotel through two
rows of bewitching women, who pelted
them with roses and sweet peas and
filled their arms with beautiful bou
quets of roses, geraniums, lilies and
sweet peas. Many a beauty got In re
turn some precious little souvenir from
a smitten officer. The genuine en
thusiasm and artlessness of the girls
made the scene Inspiring and romantic.
And as the cars returned and were
loaded the pretty women were en
masse to shout their adieus to the
fleeting visitors.
It had been the purpose to make a
long trip through Pasadena, but this
was curtailed and. a trip that passed
the homes of Mrs. George WChllds
and Mrs. James A. Garfield, widow of
the president, was made. Mrs. Gar
field was on her porch and waved her
. handkerchief at the officers, -who doffed
their caps as they passed. The next
stop scheduled was at the Annandale
Golf club, but none was made, as Gen.
Chaffee and Admiral Thomas had In
mind the old soldiers and sailors wait
ing for them at the Soldiers' home,
where they promised to be at 3:30
o'clock. A car stopped to make ex
' planations to the club and the column,
in racing time, headed for Garvanza
and East i Los Angeles on the way to
Hollywood and the Soldiers* home.
. All along the way, through Holly
wood "and In the country thousands
waited to cheer the officers, and wher
ever the speed, perforce, was reduced
flowers were showered.".^,;'
Greeted by Veterans
Before the home was In sight its
presence was known by the aged sen
tinels In blue, who doffed their caps
and stood at attention while the smok
ing cavalcade passed. The run through
the grounds was around the rear of the
buildings, past the dormitory where
the infirm were massed on the green
sward to cheer feebly and on to a line,
two deep, that stretched for half a mile
along the right side of the driveway.
When the main building was reached
the naval veterans were assembled to
gether, and they gave a great cheer as
the admiral's car halted. He rose and
stood uncovered while the cheering
lasted, and then In a few sentences,
hardly distinguishable In the noise of
tho machines, told . the old men how
much the navy owed to the veterans of
the Civil War. The line continued to
the gateway, where with another cheer
the flying party was sent on its way
toward Santa Monica. ' ',* -•*'
All Santa Monica was on the gui vlve
and - the auto column . ran through
streets filled with decorated houses and
overhung with strings of pennants,
while, the pelting with flowers and
bouquets was resumed. ' „
Into Linda Vista park and along the
ocean side for a mile the autos whizzed,
and stopped only when the sight of 200
little girls, led by a cornetist, stood
singing "America." The admirals and
the officers uncovered, and Admiral
Thomas was presented with a huge
bouquet of California poppies. He was
also greeted by David Evans, chair
man of the Santa Monica committee,
who gave him a memorial, engrossed
and bound with the national colors.
The cavalcade sped on to Ocean Park,
where it moved up the cement sidewalk
to Venice, where the gavel of Lord
Nelson, used on the Victory, was pre
sented Admiral Evans, represented by
Admiral Thomas. Then it dispersed
by various roads back to Los Angeles.
Many of the cars remained to let the
officers of the Third .division return to
their ships.
Land Cruise a Mad One
' The ride as a whole was a mad one
for officers used to the pageantry of the
ocean. ... That it , was rapid , was Illus
trated by the speed the press car had
to attain to catch up with ' the head.
Being belated this car had to run
forty-two ' miles an I hour between ' the

WARSHIPS VISITED
BY 10,000 PERSONS
MANY TAKE LUNCH IN GUNS
SHADOW
Lesson In Courtesy Given Visitor by
£_isVri Officer of the Vermont.
Officers Praise Spirit
Shown Them
San Pedro experienced one of her
busiest days yesterday, when 10,000
people visited the warships lying in
the inner harbor. The Hermosa made
five trips to the Connecticut, carrying
about 700 passengers each trip. The
Mermaid, Albatross and Hermosa also
made many trips loaded to the gun
wales with passengers. 1
Hundreds of visitors carried their
lunches and sat around on the decks
of the ships in the shade of the big
guns and ate while the bands played.
Four boys were ordered from the
Kansas yesterday afternoon for un
gentlemanly conduct while near women
on the lower deck.
A lesson in courtesy was adminis
tered a man yesterday In one of the
steam launches of the Vermont. Sev
eral people wished to go ashore, and
as there were no shore boats in sight
the officer of the deck ordered a
launch alongside.. A man in the party
rushed down the gangway and boarded
the boat as It drew near. A number
of women followed, but there were not
enough seats for all of them. The of
ficer came down to see If there was
not some way he could make more
room, and saw this man sitting down
while the women were standing up.
"Get up there, sir; you are not in a
street car, and we are taught to be
gentlemen in the navy."
Wife Joins Commander
Lieutenant Commander A. Althouse
of the Vermont entertained his wife
on board the Vermont yesterday. Mrs.
Althouse said: "If arrangements can
be made I Intend to make the trip
around the' world with Mr. Althouse.
At any rate, I will go north with him."
In talking about the reception given
the fleet Mr. Althouse said: "The en
thusiastic, whole-souled welcome ex
tended by the people of San Diego and
Los Angeles and neighboring ports
surpassed all expectations. The men
particularly are enjoying a hospitality
never before displayed by any people
within my knowledge. The amuse
ments provided for them were whole
some and such as to make their visit
here live long on their memory." -T- 1
Lieutenant Commander Philip An
drews, executive officer of U. S. S.
Kansas, said: "I was here four years
ago on the flagship New York as flag
lieutenant to Rear Admiral Glass, now
retired and living in Berkeley, Cal. I
have many friends In Los Angeles and
am proud of the place and its people
and would like nothing better than to
be able to live here. The reception of
and hospitality extended to the officers
and men of the fleet are unprecedent
ed and is probably a correct forecast
of what may be expected all along the
Pacific coast.
"It has been particularly gratifying
to the officers that so much has been
done for the men —so much of interest
and amusement furnished which will
keep them away from the ordinary and
vicious amusements of a large city."
i First Visit to Coast
W. • Cecil Colbert, chief yeoman
on the Kansas and private secretary
to the executive officer, said:
"This is my first visit to the shore
of the land of flowers and sunshine;
therefore I had no friends here prior
to the arrival of the fleet, but I must
say that during our brief stay I have
made the acquaintance of many nice
people. I had always imagined that I
would like California very much, and
I am pleased to state that my expecta
tions have been fully realized. I like
Los Angeles and her people so well
that it is quite likely that at some fu
ture time I will make it my perma
nent abode.
"Our brief stops along the coast,
while the pleasure we are having fully
compensates, there is nevertheless a
great deal of work to perform by the
executive officer and his aides relative
to liberty lists and functions of every
sort, which the very hospitable people
of Los Angeles and other cities of Cal
ifornia have provided.
"During our stay of seven days off
Los Angeles a liberty party, consisting
of 200 men each day, not a man on
board entitled to same, and when lt
was possible to do so has been kept
on board ship. Considering the large
party sent ashore, the absentees have
been comparatively few, especially so
on the Kansas, the average absentees
from crews of about 875 on each ship
in the first division, anchored at San
Pedro are as follows: Vermont, 75;
Louisiana, 62; Kansas, 26. Of course
it is to be understood that these men
will no doubt return on board their
ships, but at present the hospitality of
Los Angeles proves too much for
them and they have forgotten the navy
for a few days.
"Liberty was granted from 7 a. m.
until 7 a. m. the following day, thus
giving the boys ample time to get
about the city and witness the several
daily entertainments prepared for
them, which kind hospitality, I assure
you, Is heartily appreciated from the
admiral down to the coal passers. I,
for one, do. Three cheers for Los An
geles!" '. 17 i-7 •:

TATTOOING HABIT
GROWING IN NAVY
SURGEON SAYS MANY SAILORS
WEAR MARKS
While Practice Is Decreasing Among
Tribes Where It Originated,
Jack Tars Are Ex.
tending It .

Br Associated Press. ■
WASHINGTON, April 23.—Tattoo
ing in the navy, as shown by the rec
ords of • the receiving ship Indepen
dence, is the topic of an interesting
contribution to the current Issue of
the United States Navy Medical Bul
letin, contributed by Surgeon Ammen
Fahrenholt. It says that while tat
tooing originated as an adornment of
uncivilized peoples it Is far less com
mon among them today than formerly,
partly through the influence of mis
sionaries, of public and government
Interference, as is at present the case
in Japan. - ■ •' ' .
On the other hand the total extent
of this habit, Dr. Fahrenholt says, has
probably never been greater than it is
at the present time. Although it may
be there is a slight- decrease in the
percentage of tattooed persons adopt
ing the sea as a means of livelihood,
there is certainly a marked increase
among those who travel and even
among those who live at a distance
from the influences of the sea. There
Is hardly any large city but has one
or more professional tattooer.
Dr. Fahrenholt examined the enlist
ment records of 3672 men, being those
enlisted at Independence during the
past eight years. It shows the tat
tooed were 53.61 per cent on exam
ination for second enlistment and 23.01
for first enlistment. 77■ 7 " .
The opinion is expressed that about
60 per cent of persons who have served
over ten years in the navy are tattooed.
Dr. Fahrenholt says it Is not fair
to assume from the figures presented
that 23 per cent of all male citizens
are tattooed, as a considerable propor
tion of applicants for enlistment are
seafaring men. He was surprised to
find so many, probably 8 per cent of
the recruits who are tattooed and who
denied having been at sea or even hav
ing lived In seaport towns. One of
every three men tattooed select a de
sign, some part of which Is a female
figure, and 'less than one per cent show
Indecent subjects. Coats of arms and
national emblems, Gibson heads, cruci
fixes, Jerusalem crosses, the Goddess
of Liberty, ships, eagles, pigs and ap
prentice knots were among the tat
tooed marks noticed.

Several of the directors and officials
connected with the inner affairs claim
the bank even under the direction of
