De Palma Seeks Chance
She terrific sliced looked for in the

by tin- motordrome crowds, although
De Palma is out of it through Inability
to K''t his IW-horsepower Fiat in shape
to make a showing against tlie "Hlil

the Vnnderliilt cup winner, will have
a chance to pit his special Simplex
agalnsl the Ben*.
Oldfleld will not he disappointed In
tin' chance for a championship race,
for Robertson's reckless, daredevil,
whirlwind driving will be shown at its
best, and to retain his title Oldfleld will
be compelled to lot the monster Hen/.
ciiii iis he has not yet driven on the
motordrome track. Robertson, who has
i n keen tor the opportunity, says he
j will drive to the limit of his car's
' power. While not up to horsepower
; with the Ben* the Simplex has an ad
vantage in llfhtnest, which im.:iiih
less tire trouble.
The Oldfleld'Robertson match will be
i run in two heats. Saturday and Sun
din afternoons, and the third heat, it
necessary, will be driven Sunday.
Each heat will be five miles, and the

Though liis big IM Flat is so thorough
ly disabled as not to race Oldrleld in
his big "Lightning Bens," yet Dp

confident is De Palma that he can beat
Oldfleld and his big car with a car of

Willing to post $1000 forfeit to bring
the conteat about.
Today's program at the motordrome
la full of aharp, snappy racing, which
I will give tho crowds excitement From
beginning to end. The big drivers
come together, while the handicap
races v. ill offer chances for the small
oars to show clever racing.
Of the many fine programs the Woman's
Press club has offered its members and
guests this •••■on, that of yesterday after
noon was a notable one, with Its address
by William I* Hubbat-d, the noted dramatic
critic, and music by Mary La Grand Reed
and Roland Paul. The program opened
with a group of songs by Mrs. Read "Tof
caV followed by "The Rosebud" by i.a
Forge. "The Blue Bird" by Laura Zerbe,
anil 'Walts Hong" by Aarenskl. Roland
Paul, accompanied by Mrs. D. Harmon
Ryus, sang the prelude, "Life," and "Sum
mer," from "The Cycle at Life, by I.ang
don Roland.
In his nddress Mr. Hubhard did not go
into the discussion of the commercial side
of the theatrical profession,, what com
mercialism la doing for the stage or against
'• it, but chose to regard the ftage as an In-
I stitution which la a very Important factor
In cultural life and consider some of the
tendencies connected With It and some of
the possibilities It might have If properly
used. He sharply scored problem plays. He
thinks In time these will bo excluded be
cause the suggestion contained In them Is
not helpful and uplifting.
Mr. Hubhard deplored the fact that there
can not'be In every city a subsidized thea
ter that can present the classics, such as
are seen In foreign countries. He believes
that time will come when some city or
some municipality, realizing the potency
that lies In the stage for good or bad sug
gestion, will recognize it and will use it as
a means for the education and cultivation
of Its people; that It will not come about
through a narrow crowdlns of the >tua.
but will come about through the realization
of lie power of suggestion that lies in all
plays. .;; -■
Local District and Members Are
Favored at State Federation
of Organizations
Delegates Unanimously Agree on
Next Meeting Place—Mrs.
Waters Assumes Office
(.us Angeles district of ill'- State Federation
of Women's Clubs has the state president ami
the mooting place of the next convention.
Club women throughout the district may feel
Justifiably proud of the delegate* Bent to the
convention at Santa Barbara, for with much
diplomacy, an.l the asnlstance of many nat
ural conditions, this double victory was In
deed a triumph.
It took only one ballot, cast by the secre
tary, Mrs. Annie uttio Barry of Berkeley, to
elect the officers of the State Federation of
Women* Club* yeterdas'. The ticket nom
inated last Saturday wax elected, according to
the announcements made at thai time, and li
composed of these women: Mrs. Itusscll .1.
Waters, l.<>» .Angeles, president; Mrs. it. H.
Bobbins, Ban Diego, vice president; Mrs. 15.
G. Dennlson, Han Francisco, vice president at
large; Mrs. 8. M. Davis, Santa Ana, record
las secretary; Miss Adele. Humphrey, Lot An.
gel* corresponding secretary; Mrs. Emily
Hoppln, YoJo, treasurer; Mrs. Frank Howe of
Ix)ng Reach and Mrs. M. TV. Neely of Fresno,
auditors; Mrs. J. W. Orr, San ETrancico, fed
eration secretary.
The district presidents already elected In
their own conventions, but confirmed by the
state convention, are: Mrs. A. W. Ilradbury,
northern; Mrs. A. P. Black, Ban Francisco;
Mrs. a. I* Barry, Alamcda; Mrs. it. 1,. Har
grove, San Joaquln; Mrs. William Haurhyte,
Urn Angeles, and Mrs. William B. Hitter,
Th.- receiving of Invltatlone to the conven
tion for its nest meeting we* postponed until
y. kii rday mornlnf, and then, with eeven
ipeaken on the floor, the i»ng Beacn dele
(ltlon, headed by Mm. Doyle and ably sec
onded by Mrs. Frank Howe, offered such al
luring picture! of Long Beach's advantages
us a location for the next meeting that the
rote was In their favor.
Other Invitations received were from San
Mateo; Mrs. Buffard of the Woman's club at
Riverside, followed by a letter from the Busi
neat Men'H association at the same place; Mrs.
Porter of the Woman's club, Del Monte, and
Mrs. Orr of the California club, San Fran
claco. •
Long Beach was first choice by a ballot of
::, to 06 votes, and this was afterward made
unanimous. An Important Item in this de
cision of the convention wan the fact that
some time ago the club women of Santa Bar
bara feared that they would not be able to
accommodate the convention and asked Long
Beach If It could do so, an appeal which met
with an immediate! affirmative response. When
It was eventually decided that Santa Barbara
could have the convention there was a very
general feeling of appreciation of the hos
pitality and promptness of Long Beach, and
this tended to the favorable consideration
\vhleh the preposition received. Another Item
which was not less Important was the very
reasonable rates which were made and guar
anteed by the management of the Hotel Vir
ginia for the convention. Reservations will be
made one week In advance.
The auditorium at th« Virginia Is capacious,
and the hotel agrees to entertain the conven
tion at any time, either In April or May.
The convention passed the proposed amend,
ment to the constitution of the state federa
tion, article 3, section 2. which now reads as
"Clubs applying for membership shall show
by their constitution that no sectarian nor
political bias shall be permitted," to bo
changed to read, "Clubs applying for member
ship shall show by their constitutions that
the organization requires no sectarian nor
political test for membership."
The report of Mrs. Kmily Hoppin. Yolo,
state treasurer, was read and accepted, show-
Ing (921.06 cash on hand and 19,109 members
In the state federation.
Dr. C. E. Edwards was Introduced and
spoke for a few minutes concerning the use
of home products, explaining that many
manufacturers now felt obliged to put a
foreign label on their goods, as purchasers
would not buy goods which .proclaimed In
their label their California origin.
Mis. Oliver P. Clarke of th« Friday Morn-
Ing club Invited those delegates who might
be In Los Angeles next Friday morning to
attend the meeting of the Friday Morning
club. Flu secretary's minutes were read
and accepted. With the conclusion of all the
actual business of the convention, Mr«. Hums
asked the newly elected state officers to come
to the platform, the secretary calling them,
and when they were assembled Mrs. Hume,
president for the past two year* of the Slate
Federation of Women's clubs, made a Brace
ful speech of farewell.
Speaking to the new board, she urged them
to be faithful to the federation, loyal to their
leader and true to each other, in presenting
the gavel to Mrs. Waters, Mrs. Hume spoki.
of patience, courage, ta^t anil Industry as
elements of success' In the office, and said;
"Remember, this. Is a gavel and not a ham
mer; It la not to be used In offense or de
fense, but to preserve order and dignity of
behavior. I atiall yield up to you willingly
all my rights, privileges and emoluments of
office but one. 1 shall defend valiantly against
all comers my place in the hearts of the
federated club ♦omen.' 1
Continued applause greeted each of tin,
new officers a« she took her place, an.l Mrs.
Hume's speech was likewise tho signal for
much hand clapping, followed by the. rising
Chatauqua salute. *
With Mrs. Hume's descent from the rostrum.
Mis. Waters made a few graceful remarks
concerning her devotion to the Interests of
her city clubs, her district clubs ami M"«
to her state clubs. "I belonK to On Itat*
now and to you," and with these word! 1" r
gnvel fell, the state convention of 1910 IMUi
adjourned and Mrs. Russell .1. Waters had
performed her Initial duty in her new official
Mra. Watera called her executive hoard to
