RAIN WILL MEAN
DELAY TO SHOW ALL IS READY FOR PASADENA EXHIBIT OF HORSES Mora and Better Entries and Cups Than Ever Before In History of Horae Bhow — Tomor. row'a Events P«seu)«Tia Agency, 7 North Raymond Avenuei Phones: Sunset 1807, Home 1121. i PASADENA, March 6.— Late this af ternoon the director! of the Southern California. Horse Show association an nounced that If the weather is rainy In the morning (Thursday) and threaten ing In the afterrtoon the opening of the show will be postponed until Friday morning at it o'clock. if postponement is necessary the events scheduled for Thursday will be run off Friday morn ing. The opening day Is planned to have a particularly good program of events. California bred roadsters and the wo men's hunting classes seem destined to prove the most popular. In all events handsome cups and other prizes have been hung up. The events scheduled for this after noon, If it does not rain, are: Califor nia bred roadsters, single; harness horses, pairs; three-gated saddle horses, roadsters, single; harness horses, pairs and appointments; Shetland stallions, California bred horses, pairs; harness horses, road fours and appointments; coach stations, shown to lead; wo men's, hunters, runabouts. ' * The crowd at the . horse show often ls dissatisfied with the" decision In classes In which apolntments are fig ured In. Appointments of course Include the vehicle to which the horse or horses are hitched as well as the harness. All the details - must be in perfect accord with the class, and many a horse who has captured the hearts of the specta tors loses out because his master did not suitably equip him for the event. This evening the directors of the as sociation, the Hi'! !rlb of trie exhibition ring and the judge* for the several events are guests of Benjamin Blossom at his handsome home on South Orange Grove avenue. After an elaborate din ner the men. who have worked to make the third annual show In Pasadena which, Incidentally, Is the last one for the Crown city for two years, a sue cess talked over final details. lt Is the opinion of all the officials that the show this year will be far better than any yet held In the,state, lf it does not rain. More and finer cups than ever before have been hung up and the list of entries Is probably the largest of any show yet held. The entry list will not be announced until the first event 'a called, be that this afternoon, Friday morning or later. lr Is always the object to keep this list quiet so that those in certain classes may not know with whom they will compete. It is feared that If a competitor with only a moderate chance of success should learn that some famous horse is entered in the class In which he is to compete, he might with draw. This year - the Los Angeles - people win have a better chance to get to the horse show than ever before, for it is the first time In the history of the show that a car line from Los Angeles has run anywhere near the grounds. This year one of the handiest ways to reach Tournament park from Los Angeles will be via the Wentworth cars, and many will undoubtedly choose that route. . . . . -This year the sale of boxes in the grand stand has been unusually large and the event will be more of a society one even than the ones held In past years. The grand stand has been re arranged for the occasion and aisles have been left so that it wil be easier to move about from part to part of the stand. The big hotels have reserved an un usually large number of boxes and seats for their guests and as the horses centerede entered this year are even more classy than they were last year, the event will undoubtedly be one of the most marked successes of any of the many success ful shows given in Pasadena. , PARK IMPROVEMENT PLAN MEETS WITH CRITICISM Special to The Herald. SANTA MONICA, March 6.— The in tention of the board of city trustees to spend $2200 In making improvement at Linda Vista park has called forth unfavorable comment from several quarter*, the contention being made that the plans for the work should be drawn by a practicing landscape arch itect and not by the city engineer as has been arranged for. H. Rowland Lee, a noted landscape architect residing here, has conveyed his sentiments on the subject to the board In a lengthy comunication in which he sayß In part: "After a close inspection of the city engineer's plans I notice that they have not the slightest bearing on landscape or park development, no more than they have upon plans for a fleet of sea-going vessels, nor do they show any lines on which your honor able body would be Justified in spend ing $20, let alone the amount, $2200, called for In the city engineer's re port." It is probable that the board will take definite action In the matter of the Improvements which will come up for dlacusßlon at the next regular meet ing of that body.

Man/ Handsome Sped. men* to Be Seen A medley of lumber and barks was the Bum total of the dog show opening yesterday, and general disappointment became manifest nt the sinek manngq merit which allowed such ■ condition of affairs to exist. Owners experienced ft difficult time as their entries had no place to rest during the day and disconsolately whined from their unseemly positions near pillars or whatever tethering place could be secured. Benching supplies did not reach tho city In time for erection, and as a re sult those seeking admission beheld a bedlam of belated preparation. A A force of workmen was busy all day and will continue until the benches havo been completed. So far as the entries themselves are concerned, many handsome specimens are to be seen, especially among the collies and Boston terriers. Very little was accomplished In the way of Judging owing to the confusion. Naturally the animals were restive and scarcely at their best. ' Promise Is made that procedure will bc smooth hereafter, and as keen in terest had been manifested regarding the canine exhibit hopes are enter tained for a successful outcome.
