GAIN IN MEMIIEUS
The Federated Improvement associa
tion is steadily gaining In membership,
and at last evening's meeting the fol
lowing promotion bodies were admitted
to membership: Molcdo Improvement
association, Hollywood board of trade,
West Adams Improvement association,
Wilshire Improvement club, Stephen
son Avenue association and the Glen
dale Improvement association.
The association was formed for the
purpose of creating closer and more
friendly relations among the various
associations which aim to beautify and
improve Los Angeles.
A committee was appointed to go
before the city council and request that
body to complete its part of the work
on the proposed road from Western
avenue to San Pedro. The highway
commission will not start work on the
road until the city commences work on
that part inside the corporate limits.
The residents of Garvanza and High
land Park forwarded a petition to the
association requesting that body* to
have a committee appear before the
proper authorities in an effort to Install
an interlocking block signal derailing
device at the crossing of the Atchison,
Topeka & Santa Fe railway on Avenue
Twenty, where the road crosses the
tracks of the Los Angeles railway's
Garvanza lines. The matter will be at
tended to at an early date.
A vote of thanks was extended to
Capt. Hansen for his invitation, and
those at the meeting all expressed a
desire to enjoy an outing In San Pedro.
ANGELANS PLAN PACIFIC
TO ATLANTIC HIGHWAY
Predict 300-Foot Road Connect
ing Los Angeles with -
New York
Some day there may be a. national
highway 300 feet wide extending from
Los Anseles harbor to New York by
■way of Yuma, Ariz.; Savannah, Ga.,
and thence north along the Atlantic
toast.
John J. Jones, one of the promoters
of the proposed widening to 200 feet
of Vermont avenue, a distance of
twenty-six miles, from San Pedro to
Los Angeles, and J. Mills Davies are
the men who have been appointed by
the North, Northeast and Northwest
.Improvement association to push the
proposition.
Last evening at a meeting of that or
ganization Mr. Jones asked lor and
was given permission to enlist in be
half of the project the services of the
chamber of commerce. The assistance
of senators and congressmen is to be
nought, and everything possible done
to make a reality of the proposed im-
IJrovement.
"Americans go to Europe and spend
$300,000,000 annually to tako advantage
of the good roads to see that country
by automobile," pays Mr. Jones.
"There is no reason why we shouldn't
have a public highway for Europeans
and thousands of our own people who
want to see their native country.
"In addition for the transporting of
freight the proposed road probably
•would be of great value."
At the annual meeting of the asso
ciation, which will be held in the
chamber of commerce committee room
July 21, two vice president vacancies
ure to bo filled.
This election was to have taken place
yesterday at tho regular semi-monthly
meeting, but a rule of the organization
requiring that twenty members be
present to make a, quorum prevented
the election.

PASADENA ASKS WAY TO
GET OWENS RIVER WATER
Civic Association Declares Crown
City Will Seek for Supply
from Aqueduct
LETTER IS SENT TO COUNCIL
Early Steps to Be Taken So That
There Will Be No
Delay
Closely following the suggestions ad
vanced by the Hon. T. E. Gibbon In
his speech before the City club last
Saturday, the Pasadena Civic associa
tion has written to Mayor Alexander
and city council, asking what steps
will be necessary for the Crown City
to take In order to obtain a portion
of the water which will come from the
Owens river on completion of the 230
mile aqueduct. Mayor Alexander re
ferred the communication to the coun
cil.
In part, the Civic association's letter
says:
TILE LETTER „
"The Pasadena Civic association, an
organization which has for its object
the furtherance of the civic welfare of
Pasadena, and which represents a
large body of citizens who believe that
the time has come when Pasadena
can no longer depend on its present
water supply or on tho further devel
opment of water from that source, but
must acquire a new and independent
suply if its further growth is not to be
retarded, and who also believes that
Pasadena and the lands adjoining it
and similarly situated, north, east and
south, a territory which embraces
much of the richest and most beautiful
portion of the San Gabriel valley and
which is rapidly filling up with the
homes of a most desirable class of citi
zens, must look to Los Angeles and
the Owens river for that additional
supply of water which it needs, hereby
requests your honorable body to indi
cate under what conditions and in what
manner the city of Pasadena and such
adjacent territory, if any, as to you
may seem desirable to be embraced
therewith, may obtain such portion of
tho Owens river water and power as
will supply its present and future
needs.
DIVKUSITV OF OPINION
'•There' being diversity of opinion
among our citizens as to how Pasa
dena may acquire water from the
Owens river, this association, that it
may place the matter properly before
the people and render such assistance
as may be in its power to accomplish
the desired end, will deem it an especial
favor if your honorable body will at an
early date as possible indicate what
the city of Los Angeles desires of Pasa
dena In the premise and the procedure
which you deem necessary or desirable.
If more than one course is open for
adoption by Pasadena, kindly so ad
vise with any recommendations you
may have to offer.
"EDMUND D. BARRY, president.
"W. D. MEDILL, secretary."
Mayor Alexander accompanies the
letter with a communication impressing
upon the council that the question of
the disposal of the surplus of water
which the city would have when the
aqueduct is completed, should be taken
up in the immediate future. He calls
attention to the fact that it will be
necessary to build aqueducts from the
Los Angeles resorvoirs to the cities de
siring service, which will take time.

City Attorney Leslie It. Hewitt gave
a decision yesterday that employes of
the board of education are not subject
to the civil iervlce pr< i-islona <<t the
charter and are not under tlie jurisdic
tion of the civil service commission.
This opinion came in response to a re
quest from the civil service commis
sioners tc, define their power over the
board of education emplo
The district attorney had given an
opinian that the civil service provisions
only affect such employes of the board
of education as may bo paid from
funds in the city treasury, inasmuch
states Hewitt, as then are no rm
ployes of tho board oi education paid
from tho city tr. asury, the commis

CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION
ADVOCATES LARGE FIREMEN
Effort to Lower Height Standard
Is Opposed
The civil service commission has re
pllod to the Jire commissioners regard
ing the latter's request that the civil
service rule requiring applicants for
positions In the department to be 6
feet 7 Inches In height be amended to
admit men one inch shorter In height
to the department. The civil service
office suggests that the standard be
not lowered, but the commission is In
clined In an opposite direction.
The objection to the cut in height
concerns the inability of men short In
stature to reach the brakes of the fire
wagons, nnd further suggests that
small men find difficulty in hitching
horses to apparatus.
OIL INSPECTOR ASKS FOR
INVESTIGATION OF NEEDS
Charles A. Blackmar, city oil In
spector, has addressed a communica
tion to the city council asking that a
committee be appointed to Investigate
the workings of his office, and use the
information so gained in deciding
whether he shall be allowed the serv
ices of a clerk. When Blackmar a
month ago made a request for add I*
tional help in his office, Councilman
Betkouski opposed the granting of the
request.
The matter was referred to the sup
ply committee and, according to Black
niar's communication, was at first re
ported on favorably, being later
stricken out on the orders of Council
man Betkouski. Blackmar says th.it
P.etkouski's opposition is due to cer
tain information given uncompliment
ary to tho oil inspector. He a.sks that
Betkouski be made one of the investi
gating committee.^

SCARS OF WIFE'S MAKING
DIVORCE CASE EXHIBIT
William Shirley Proves Spouse so
Vicious Court Considers
Insanity Proceedings
So complete a tale of extreme cru
elty did William Shirley establish be
fore Judge Hutton yesterday that he
came near having his plea for a di
vorce from Emma Shirley denied on
the grounds that the woman is insane.
Scars on face, back, chest and wrists,
two of them the results of gunshot
wounds and three of separate knife as
sults, were offered by the plaintiff as*
evidence.
"She shot at me twice as I went to
work the morning of October 10, l'JOn,"
said Shirley on the stand. "One of them
grazed my back. I can show you if
you lilio, judge.
"Then these two cuts on my wrists
were the result of my protecting my
face from a carving knife she threw
at me from across the table. The scar
vii my In east was made while we were
out hunting. She claimed It was an
accident at the time but afterward Raid
she was sorry she hadn't left me to
die ac -In 1 had intended."
•( in the face of it is Is a clear case
of insanity," said the judge. "I be-
li. vi' we ought to have her summoned
before a lunacy commission."
The attorney for the plaintiff Inter
posed with the objestion that they had
been endeavoring vigorously to locate
her and were unsuccessful. Neither
was she In Phoenix, Ariz., where al!
the trouble was alleged to have oc
curred, nor could she be found else-
Ui'er a few moments more of con-
Bideration the decree way granted.
WmTER ON BRAIN, NOT
BLOW, CAUSED DEATH
Because the autopsy disclosed the
fact that the death of Santiago Cer
vantez was due to water on ttio brain
and not to a blow, Kleno Mendez was
yesterday discharged, on the recom
mendation of the district attorney,
from the charge of murder.
Mendez struck Cervantea <>n the head
with a shovel a lew days before tne
littter was taken suddenly violently m
san i and died. Both worked on the
section, and it was supposed that the
death was due to the blow. Dr. Camp
bell who performed the autopsy, held
no doubts as to Mendez' Innocence of
being the cause. and stated to
rudge Davis that water on the brain
would not be produced by concussion
was sufficient to secure the dismissal.
