IF YOU READ THIS
THINK THINGS OVER
'A Word to the Wise Is Sufficient.'
Your Attention, Please-
Here's the Word:
A MIGHTY LITTLE WORD IS IF'
Upon Present Activity Depends
and Then Act!
* IF—Just a little word of two letters
(and both thin ones at that), but how
much it means! What history is often
hinged around it! What sorrow and
joy it somotlmes expresses.
IF—countless things have this moral
lor their pivot.
IF" —it's a rock upon which lUCceM is
built or the rock upon which life's ship
"IK" I had only known." How often
have you heard this pathetic plea.
Hf (here's where we get to practical
philosophy) you are a candidate in Tin;
Herald's $25,000 voting contest, or have
a friend who la a candidate, you have
already seen how frequently "It" man
ages to bob up In everything.
IF, perhaps, you had east more votes
during past periods you would have .se
cured a high prize.'
IF, however, you were BUCCeSSfUI you
know that your success was due to
your having done your very best.
IF you had not seen as many voters
as you did you would have been among
the "also rans." A great word, this
"If"—a word which either shouts in
joy with you or In liomlish ulee at you.
Whether it's "with you" or "at you"
all depends; "if"— etc.
IF you are a candidate in The
Herald's voting contest you should be
doing some serious thinking, You have
seen valuable prizes go (or very small
vote totals—yon have seen candidates
fail by very small margins. A differ
ence of one yearly subscription meant
a difference of over Jf>(> in prizes recent
ly. In simpler words, one candidate
won a prize valued at $fif> HON than the
next special prize because he stood just
one subscription higher than bis near
est competitor. Rather provoking to
lose out on such a splendid competition
by such a small margin. What could
the less fortunate candidate say—what
did she say?
"IF I had only got one more!" Oh,
tantalizing, maddening "IF!"
Similar examples are plentiful. The
history of The Herald's contest is al
ready all to plentifully sprinkled with
such incidents. Wow about the future?
You, whether you're a candidate or
simply some candidate's lieutenant, are
you facing the question squarely? Are
you going to make "JF" laugh with
you or are you going to permit it to
laugh at you
IF you do everything in your power
to make your vote total (or your
favorite's) grow as high as possible as
fast as possible the outcome is not in
doubt. While wrestling with the "if"
problem go over the following details
carefully and then use your best judg
ment and put forth your best efforts:
IF the contest closed tonight where
would you stand; what would you get?
IF you see every friend as quickly
ns possible wouldn't it put you a whole
lot higher in the list?
IF you saw all your Mends wouldn't
they gladly see their friends and get
their votes for you?
IP you began doing this at once
couldn't you secure the votes of five
IF you carried out this suggestion
■wouldn't that mean the votes of ten
IF you did this every day wouldn't
the next few days see your total in
creased tenfold "and then some?"
IF all this meant a 5300 home or n—
but there is where "if" ceases to be a
paragraph opener because there's no
"If" about it—this means a $5300 home
or a $3380 Knox tourabout, or a double
trip to the orient or something propor
tionately splendid for you. Just an
hour's telephoning every day or per
sonal calls whenever you have some
spare moments—this is all that Is
necessary. What more remunerative,
pleasant work can you ask? Nr.w to
work In earnest! Here's to "IF" for
pointing out a way to active success —
and success is after all nothing more
than having the world laugh with you
Instead of at you!

DEBATERS OF TWO CITIES
ARE AFTER CHAMPIONSHIP
Los Angeles Team Working Hard
for Annual Contest
The annual championship debate of
the SouUiern California league between
the two schools in the league having
the highest aggregate score is to take
place Friday evening. May 20. The con
testants for the championship are the
Pasadena and Los Angeles high schools,
the latter school having the affirma
tive of the question: "Resolved, That
the United States should establish a
quasl-protectorate over the republics
of Central America."
As its representatives in the debate
Pasadena has chosen Donald Fox and
Miss Caryl Green, both experienced de
baters, but Los Angeles has a no less
worthy team. Miss Blsle Jones par
ticipated in the Pomona-Los Angeles
and Los Angeles-Anaheim debates and
won first place in each case, while
Oscar Werner was one of the team
Which defeated Hollywood. This year
both schools have won every debate
which they have entered, although Pas
adena has the slight advantage over
Los Angeles of two and two-thirds
Both teams are working hard and are
confident that the laurels of victory
will be theirs, but the Los Angeles
team Is especially ardent and deter
mined because this is the first time in
the history of the league that Los An
geles city has been one of the contes
tants in the championship debate.
The debate will be held in the Poly
technic high school auditorium because
the rules of the league provide that the
final contest shall be fought on neutral
soil. The Judges are Prof. R. D.- Hunt
of the University of Southern Califor
nia, Prof. W. S. Stevenson of Occi
dental and Prof. H. O. Williams, prin
cipal of the Santa Barbara high school.
MAN'S MODESTY COSTS
HIM ALL HIS CLOTHING
Conventional Mr. Brown Wouldn't
Chase Thief in Pajamas
NEW YORK, May 14.—1t is not de
rigueur in Yonkers to appear on the
Ptrpot In one's pajamas. Arthur Q.
Brown of 20 Poplar street very nearly
forgot it early this morning, when his
mother-in-law. Mrs. J. Strum, aroused
him with the news that a burglar was
Just leaving by the front gate. Brown
looked through the open window and
saw that Mrs. Strum's news was true.
For an Instant he thought of giving
(hasp himself, but he caught himself
Just in time. „,
But when Brown reached for his
trousers they were missing from their
accustomed place. Likewise his coat
and his shoes. The burglar was far
down the street and Brown covered
the distance between the bedside and
the wardrobe in one bound. Thank
heaven, his Sunday clothes were In
tlu' game room with him!
Only the Sunday clothes weren't.
Once more Brown looked from the open
window after the still more distant
burglar, and his worst fears were re
alized. Tho burglar had his Sunday
clothes as well as his others. Not even
a waistcoat had been overlooked.
Then Brown called up the police.
While they were on their way to the
house Brown found that his watch was
gone, and with it $40 in money. For
the last time Brown looked from the
window. Tho street was empty.
\Ylien th^ police arrived Brown wore
an air of eh;igrin above his pajamas.
Lator ho added a smile over the fact
that, although it had been costly, he
had still done nothing to offend the
CENTRAL PARK ELEPHANTS

NEW YORK, May 14.—William Sny

of pedicuring the two elephants in
Central park. He worked for two
hours and finished only one quarter

During the year much callous

So Bnyder, assisted by Robert Hinton,
started in with Hattte, the 8-year-old
animal. She offered lio great objection
as the keeper chopped o/t the callous
mid didn't seem to mind the use of the
Bandpaper which finished up the Job.
Her forefeet were finished during the
afternoon and the men will tackle her
hind feet next.

MULES HEAD EXHIBIT IN
CASE AGAINST SEINTURIES
Manhattan Beach Contractors
Say Dead Animal Drugged
After forty years of faithful service,
a mule died in harness Saturday in the
sand dunes back of Redondo. A father,
son and grandson have been arrested,
charged with contributing to its death.
The head of the beast, so old that Its
ears were crossed, will be produced in
Judge Summerfleld's court next week
as evidence for the prosecution. Should
the district attorney's office prove Its
case an investigation probably will be
instituted into the doping of old ani
mals bs-Los Angeles stock dealers pre
paratory* to their being placed on the
market for sale.
Martin Seinturies, sr., Martin Selntu
rles, jr., and George Seinturies, team
sters living at Manhattan Beach, are
the men alleged to have been responsi
ble for the animal's death. A. E. Love,
a Los Angeles horse dealer, who owned
the mule, caused their arrest. The
three men claim that their working the
animal In the sand dunes would not
have caused its death had not Love
"doped" the animal previous to his
renting it to them The Salnturies say
that previous to their hiring the ani
mal the mule, filled with "horse hop,"
acted like a colt, and Impressed with
his vivacity, they hired him for the
work of leveling sand dunes.
Deputy District Attorney McCartney,
who is prosecuting the case, has or
dered the body of the animal decapi
tated, that he may produce its head in
court as evidence of its healthy con
dition before death.

Nearly an hour afterward the dog

Wellington. The dog barked and trot

Bounce meant and followed him.
Bounce led him to a patch of woods

There Wellington found a bicycle

Palm Incubator, but Wee Bird
Dies Under Hen
WINSTED, Conn., May 14.—Winsted
has a human incubator in Claude Berne
of John street, head dyer at the plant
of the Winsted Silk company. A crow's
egg hatched in his hand Sunday as he
was hurrying home with two eggs to
place them under a sitting hen. The
baby crow was found dead the next
morning, having been smothered to
death under the hen.
A crow's nest had been located in the
top of a hemlock tree, fifty feet from
the ground. Mortimer C. Peck climbed
the tree and secured the nest and the
five eggs in it. Berne was given two of
the eggs to place under a sitting hen.
One egg, which he held in his hand in
his coat pocket, hatched while he was
hurrying to the hen's nest. He was so
careful of the newly hatched crow that
