A. McDonald, a %yell known young real estate broker of Los Angeles, with offices in the Bradbury building, had defrauded her of $16uO worth of real estate and that he was aided later in the transaction by his father, A. B. McDonald, 27M West Eighth street, by means of a mortgage dated before the property had passed into their hands, .Mrs. Ida C. Parlc, IT'jo Maple avenue, appealed to Deputy District Attorney McCormiek yester day afternoon and as a result a com plaint probably will be tiled today. Mrs. Parle claims that several weeks ago she was induced by McDonald to trade him tour lots she owned in West minster Square, the value of which was $1600, for eight "penny in the slot 1' perfume machines that he told her were worth a like amount. "Having always trusted him," said Mrs. Parle, "I deeded the lots to him and in ex change received the eight machines, which I later found were only valued at J2OO. These machines were owned by George V>. Waasan, who had his place of business In with McDonald, but who knew nothing of the transac tion in regard to me. "McDonald," continued Mrs. Parle, "I later found out, purchased the ma chines from Wassan for $200 and sold them to me outright for $1600, telling me that they were worth that much, that Wassan would onl\ sell them for that amount and that the average in come from one of the machines was Bix dollar." n day. Although I endeav ored to make an appointment with "Wassan through McDonald, when I appeared at the office Wassan was never there and I was always met by an apology from McDonald. I now know the reason he did not care to have us meet. Asks for Property "After I had traded my four lots for the machines," said Mrs. Parle, "I con fided to my intimate friends, who at once became suspKiou> and urged me to look further Into the deal, with the result I found that McDonald had grossly misrepresented their value. T begged him to return my property but li~ would not hear of it. I heard he was negotiating a loan on this prop erty, representing its value at three times its real worth and getting a large loan on it. I spoiled this deal for him in another endeavor to get him to return my lots and at this he and his. father called on me and grew • furious.

AVIATION JUDGES AWARD TROPHIES HARRISON AND HARMON MAKE ALTITUDE RECORD Prize Won by Balloonists Together with Donation of $300 to Be Used to Purchase Prize Cup At a meeting of the judges of Avia tion week in the parlors of the Hotel Alexandria last night to award the prizes won in the aviation contests at Domlnguez, the prizes as announced in Los Angeles Herald yesterday prac tically were made without change. The sealed barograph taken by Clif ford B. Harmon and George B. Har rison in their balloon flight for the al titude record was opened and the of ficial figures for the altitude gained was declared to be 11,100 feet, which now stands as the Pacific coast al titude, record. A second barograph, Which also u.i^ 'uled before tile start, was broken when the balloonists land in a housetop in South Hollywood in a 30 mile an hour gale. As soon as the judges recommended the $200 prize for balloon altitude be given Pilots Harmon and Harrison, the latter announced (or Mr. Harmon that the $200 would be donated for the pur te skill in bal looning in California and that Mr. Har mon would add J3UU to the amount of the prize. At the meeting, President Cortland Field Bishop of the Aero club of Ameri ca, announced he would indorse a let ter to the Aviation week committee asking that a sufficient sum be set aside from the profits of the meeting t i purchase an engine with which to equip local aeroplanes and give local inventors an opportunity to show what their maeiiir.es, when property equipped, can do. NASHVILLE WAKING UP NASHVILLE, Term., Jan. 21.—1t is understood the question of a boycott on all meats will come before a meeting of the Neahville labor council next Sunday. LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MOHXLVa, JANUARY 22, 1010, LOVING CUP IS GIVEN PAULHAN CIVIC BODY RECOGNIZES WORK OF MAN-BIRD At Chamber of Commerce Reception French Aviator and Fellows Praise Climate of Southern Cali fornia The Los Angeles chamber of com merce presented Francis Louis Paul han, the French aviator, with a mag nificent silver loving cup last evening as a special trophy for the latter's cross-country flying. The cup stood iv Inches high with a bowl in the shape of a bell and graceful handles on either side. Engraved on the side was: "Presented to Francis Louis Paulhan by the Los Angeles chamber of com* merce for long distance cross-country flight, Los Angeles, January IS, 1910, at i:■■■! aviation meet held in America, January 10 to 20, 1910." The presentation speech was made by ■\Yillis H. Booth, president of the or ganization. He thanked M. Paulhan tor honoring the city and the chamber of commerce by his presence here anil expressed the hope that the cup would always remind its owner of his per formances in Southern California. M. Paulhan, through his Interpreter, thanked the president and the organi zation for their kindness and generos ity in giving him the trophy, and said: "I shall take the cup home and look upon it as marking the first step in my introduction of aviation to the Ameri can people." The French man-bird, accompanied by his wife and M. and Mme. Rennen j dref, were served punch and wafers and later taken through the chamber's exhibit rooms. Besides President Booth, Cortland F. Bishop, Dick Ferris and the directors of the chamber of com merce were present. ilhan and his party leave this morning for San Francisco, where the daring Frenchman will make (lights Sunday. His machines. in their private cars and accompanied by his corps of machinists, left for the north last even- Ing and will be set up and in readiness by the time the aviator arrives. Paulhan in Good Shape From San Francisco Paulhan will probably go to Salt Lake. City and from there on to Denver, making flights in each of these cities. The rumor to the effect that he is a nervous wreck and in no condition to make flights for some time is branded as absolutely false by friends of the aviator, who say that he never was better physically in his life. Dick Ferris said in regard to this charge last evening: "Paulhan Is not a nervous wreck. He has been running around Southern California seeing the sights and enjoying himself like a little child. Whoever said he was In a bad way with his nerves did not know what he was talking about." Glenn H. Curtiss, the American avia tor, is as yet undecided what he will do. He has two possible engagements for performances—one in San Fran- Cisco and the other In Phoenix, Ariz. He will leave Los Angeles this even- Ing, but he is undecided where he Will go. C. K. Hamilton left yesterday even- Ing for San Diego, where he will at tempt to break the world's altitude record Sunday. Hamilton will fly in a Curtiss biplane with the same engine which was used to break the world's altitude record at Rhelmi, Knabenshue and Beachy are nego tiating with Edwin Clearv with a view to traveling with the Paulhan aviators. In case arrangements can be made these two dirigible balloon men will join Paulhan In San Francisco and travel across the country, giving ex hibitions with him. Clifford B. Harmon will leave this morning for San Francisco with his balloon New York, where he also will glvp exhibitions., , All the aviators were warm In their I'raise of Southern California as an aviation center. They seemed, how ever, to be afraid that the public did not realize how great the meet had been. Byron K. Norton. aeronautic editor of the New York Herald, said last evening: "This meet was by far the greatest that has ever been held. Nothing before has anywhere near equaled It. Some of the records made here during the past ten days even the most optimistic of the aviatom did not hope to see ac complished for years to come." Edwin Cleary. general manager of the Paulhan forces, also had something to say in regard to the magnitude of the meet.
