Motor Car Expert Talks to Collegians
on Lack of Fundamental
Charles Eckhart of the Auburn Mo
tor Car company lectured before the
students of tho University of Southern
California yesterday on education. Mr.
Eckhart formerly was prominent in
politics In Indiana, running for gover
nor of that state a few years ago.
He spoke of the need of general edu
cation throughout the country.
"In my line of business," said Mr.
Eckhart, "I come in contact with high
ly Bkilled machinists who have spent
years in learning their trades. You
would bo surprised to know, however,
that there is scarcely one of these men
who can write a decent letter. They
are good men, honest and hard-work
ing, but they lack a general education.
"The skilled workman spends too
much of his boyhood in learning one
particular thing and not enough In ac
iiuiring general knowledge."
Joseph P. Clark, 74 years old, a
stonemason living at the Golden State
hotel in East Fifth stret, was knocked
down by a horse driven by Fred Har
rald of 909 East Fourteenth street at
Seventh and Olive streets yesterday
morning and Incurred a fracture of the
right hip. Clark, who has been In ill
health for some time, was attempting
to crocs the street in the middle of
the block. He stepped from behind an
automobile going north in Seventh
street directly in front of the horse
driven by Harrald. Clark was taken
to the receiving hospital.

Pastor Declares That if Honest Men
Will Stand Together Munici
pal Problem Is
"It is far better for the. advancement
Of good government for an official to
possess a deep seated internal rather
than a shallow external conscience,"
said Dr. J. Whltcomb Brougher, pai
tor of the TVmp|r> Baptist church, yes
terday noon at tho luncheon of the
Federation club. It was a special
Brougher welcome event arranged by
the club, and a large number of tln>
club members greeted the new pastor.
As. Dr. Brougher entered the dining
hall ho was greeted by the Federation
quartet, which .sang a humorous song
of welcome composed for the occasion.
Members of the quart"t are A. A. Ma
curda, B. C. BOynton, A. C. Wheat and
it. P. Jennings.
Nathan Nrwliy, president of the club,
presided and introduced Dr. Brougher,
who congratulated the Federation club
for the work it is doing and especially
expressed high praise for the execu
tive and other officials of Los Angeles,
calling special attention to the recent
action of Tin? Herald regarding the
changes in the police department and
its stand in the advancement <'f good
government. Dr. Brougher said:
"The good people who slick together
can make a clean city. A city ought
to control Its interests for the best
good to all. One of the first precepts
to be considered regarding an official
is a clear conscience.
"I think that women should vote, for
they have clearer consciences than the
men, and the churches, too, should be
in politics to clean up the city, for they
have much to do in forming public
opinion. I balleve In a fight to a finish
on these lines.
"The citizens should stand by the
good officials and encourage them In
every way possible. :ind the wicked of
ffeials will flee if you get after them
"It requires backbone for an official
to do good work, and we must have
the backbone to support him.
"Many business men are so busy that
they do not post themselves, and they
depend on the action of others In shap
ing their political destinies. They vote
for and therefore uphold people whom
they do not know. It is not so with
the saloon element. Each man posts
himself about his political aspirant to
office and sticks by him to the end.
"It may be a rather ticklish business
for some ministers to read from the
pulpit regarding the good and bad
characters of political aspirants, but
I think It Is the right principle to en
"I have come here to make my life
count all I can in Christian precepts
and to help to make better the City of.
the Angels."
Explosion of Cap Causes Injury to Leg
Which Is Treated at Re.
ceiving Hospital
Harold Christopher, a 15-year-old
school boy living at 007 West First
street, was treated at the receiving
hospital yesterday afternoon for a deep
laceration on the right leg which was
caused by the explosion of what is
thought to have been a nltro-glycerin
cap which he found and experimented
with by placing two short wires pro
truding from the cap to a strong elec
tric battery.
The lad, greatly frightened, ap
peared at the receiving hospital ye»
terday afternoon and told the police
surgeons that he wanted medical at
tention. When asked the nature of his
trouble the boy, who is unusually tall
for one of his age, held his head high
as he could and, \ith his eyes gazing
at the celling, pointcjj toward his In
jured leg and said, "Something Is
wrong there; It hurts. Please fix it
up quick."
After the wound was bandaged the
lad told the physicians that he found
a peculiar looking cap and decided to
connect it with a battery and note the
result. He said the effect was start
ling and he was perfectly satisfied as
to the manner In which electricity acts
on dynamite caps.
Violator of Lottery Ordinance Alleged
to Have Interfered with Po.
lice in Warrant Servlco
Wong Wing, a Chinese merchant,
whose name has been entered many
times on the polieo blotter for violat
ing the lottery ordinance, appeared in
Police Judge Williams' court yester
day to show cause why he should not
be punished for contempt of court, for
blocking the efforts of officers of tha
Chinatown squad in their attempt to
execute a search warrant in a raid
made on the establishment conducted
by Wong a short time ago.
According to the police Wong saw
them approach, rushed into the place
where it is asserted, a number of Chi
neße were playing lottery, and after
yelling to them and warning them of
their danger, closed and locked the
massive doors, shutting out the of
ficers who were compelled to gain en
trance by battering down the doors.
The attorney for Wong contended
that the police did not serve a warrant
In the proper manner and Instead of
reading it to the person in charge of
tho place, accosted Wong in the aide
walk near the entrance to the latter b
store and attempted to force him tci
enter tho placo with them.
Judge Williams took the matter un
der advisement and will render a deci
sion later.

With the return of hips comes also
the small waist.
This is a matter which may require
some serious consideration from the
woman who has been cheerfully letting
out her waist line, confident of the fact
that it made her hips- look smaller.
Will she be able to get that curve back
again as easily as she thinks?
