$15,000 IS CITY'S
Actor Folk Receive Big Prices for
Tags with Their Auto
H. W. Frank, President of Asso
ciated Charities, Gets Fancy
Pay for Signatures
Managers of the annual tan day esti
mated last night that receipts would
aggregate at leant $15,000, and perhaps
$17,000. All united In declaring that
yesterday «■»• the most nucceaiifiil tag
day in In- hlatiiry of the organization.
Nagged, ."nagged and tagged!
That was the experience yesterday
of every one who tried to venture
downtown without buying a tag from
the Associated churitio.s. There were
over 7000 men, women and children in
the downtown district selling yellow,
red, greon and purple tags fur tha
cause of charity, and hardly any»ono
could escape their pleadings. Stran
gers, tourists and pioneers were tagged
alike, and hundreds wore from three
to a dozen tags of the various colors.
The day was by far the most suc
cessful of any tag day Los Angeles has
ever known, and as a result of the
hearty co-operution of the public—es
pecially of the various clubs, schools,
societies, mercantile establishments
und theatrical folk —the day's sales ex
ceeded those of previous tag days by
j\ large number.
When it is remembered that each tag
represented 10 cents, the extent of the
charily dispensed by Los Angeles will
be seen. Long before 8 o'clock yester
day morning hundreds of enthusiastic
tag sellers were everywhere In evi
dence, nnd the rivalry was keen among
all of them to gee who could sell the
most tags. A hobo band on a hayrack
paraded the streets and caused much
amusement. Right behind this band
came a sight-seeing automobile filled
■with women of the Associated
A nuir.ber of Shriners, including Leo
Youngworth, Steve Brode and other
notables, clad In ridiculous costumes,
created a great deal of hilarity and
disposed of large bunches of tags.
In front of the Hoted Alexandria was
Hick Ferris, In charge of tw.. automo
bile parties, including Florence Storfe
(Mrs. Ferris), Maud Allan, the famous
dancer, who was kept busy writing her
autograph OB tags and selling them a.s
fast us she could write her name.
Other theatrical parties kept things
humming at various places in the city.
Tha Empire. Los Angeles, Grand, Bur
bnnK, Orpheum and other theaters
contributed talent tor the occanton, and
did much to entertain the public an I
encourage tag sales.
A crowd from the Los Angeles high
Kehool inaugurated a mock prize fight,
which was tremendously funny and
drew big crowds. The students sold

thousands of the tags, and entertained
in many ways. A whirlwind team
from the Polytechnic high school af
forded a great deal of merriment in an
automobile. They charmed snakes,
offered a "ring" free with every tag,
played an accordion, and when the freft
ring was called for it was given with
a bell. One of the Polytechnic yells
was frequently given and drew large

affording considerable diversion.
Some of the autograph tags yesterday
sold as high as $5. Maud Allan sold
one for $10, several for $5 and quite a
number for $1 each. H. W. Frank,
president of the Associated Charities,
wrote a number of tags for the Ferris
party which sold for $1 each. Mr.
Frank himself bought many tags.
Philip D. Wilson,» president of the
press committee of the day, declared
it was by far the monst successful day
in the history of the Associated Chari
ties. Some of the most successful work
of the day, aside from that done by the
Ferris party, club women and high
school students, was done by the Em
pire theater and by the Orpheum
Manager Clarence Drown of the Or
pheum did his share and a little bit
more toward the sale of tags, By spe
cial arrangement with Martin Heck,
general manager of the Orpheum cir
cuit, all performers at the Orpheum
were allowed to sell tags if they chose
to do so. Not a single performer on
the bill refused. In fact all were more
than anxious to aid in the Rood work.
As a result, four selling parties were
made up. Three big autoa and one
huge sightseeing machine carried them
about the city.
The four Orpheum parties began sell
ing exactly at 11 o'clock and ceased at
12:45. All were anxious to continue the
good work, but were forced to abandon
it because of the necessity of perform
ing at the matinee. As it was, the
four parties broke the record for tag
sales in two hours. The amount turned
in by the four parties totaled just a
few cents less than $300. A novelty was
added to the Orpheum parties' sale,
each tag being autographed by the
The four parties were made up of

In some mysterious manner tbe feathers
on her bat caught flre. In an instant
her hat was blazing. Half a dozen
men rushed to her rescue, and nuick.y
extinguished the flames. Nonetle did
not lose her presence of mind for an
Instant. As soon as the flames were
out she glanced, womanlike, into a mir
ror, and with a nonchalant "It's ruined,
but I don't care," turned around to
ask those who hastily gathered about
her to buy tags. One man, proud of
the pluck the violinist -had shown,
walked up to her and said: "Here's $10.
Please give me one tag." That started
things going, and from then on Nonette
was besieged for tags.

Special Agent Jones Creates
.Scene When He Denounces
Secretary's Statements
WASHINGTON, May 7.—The cross
examination of Secretary Ballinger by
Attorney Louis D. Brandeis was pro
ceeding with but momentary renewals
of the frequent bitter clashes of yes
terday, before the Balllnger-Pinchot
investigating committee today, when
there developed the most spectacular
incident of the hearing.
Special Agent Horace T. Jones of the
land office, who testified some time ago
in support of Louis R, Glavls, arose
in his place among the spectators and
announced in a loud voice that he did
not believe a statement made by Sec
retary Ballinger was true, and that ho
desired that a witness be called to sub
stantiate or deny what Mr. Ballinger
had said. The statement had to do
with Jones' ability as an agent and
was attributed by Mr. Ballinger to
Special Agent Dlxon.
When the commotion in the commit
tee room following Jones' Interruption
had subsided, Senator Root demanded
that the spectator be admonished that
a repetition of his outburst would sub
ject him to punishment for contempt.
Secretary Ballinger, at the after
noon session, served notice that if hd
continues as the head of the interior
department there was going to be somo
"snake killing" and it would be kept
up until the last snake was dead.
Attorney Brandeis, who has been
cross-examining the secretary, wanted
to know just who was to be dropped
from the service, but Mr. Ballinger
said tho enumeration would come in.
good time.
"If I am to continue to conduct thn
affairs of the department," said tho
secretary, "It will be with tho loyal
support of every man In the depart
The committee will meet on four
days of next week in the hope that
the cross-examination of Secretary
Ballinger may bo concluded within
that time.
