6000 AT IOWANS' OUTING AT BEACH Many Enjoy Day in Bixby Park and Hear Prominent Speakers CALIFORNIA CORN IS PRAISED Luncheon Served Under Trees to Musrc of the Local Brass Band LONG BKACH, Aug. 13.—About 6000 former n sldenta of lowa gathered today for their annual midsummer picnic in Blxby park. This gathering is not so large as the usual winter pic -810 of the society. Holding A picnic in one of the local parks was a departure, but proved eminently satisfactory, save for the fact that no extra car service was provided between the park and Pine avenue, and travel hack and forth was extremely difficult owing to the great crowd. Special service was Riven, however. by the Pacific Electric in running through c:irs between Los Angeles and the Long Beach park. A Salt Lake special of seven coaches came in from Pomona in one hour and twenty-two minutes. Many of the picnickers came in on other cars, from which they had to transfer to the park by way of the Alamitos bay or Kcdondo avenue lines. A committee of fifty Long Beach lowans received the visitors, some of the committee being stationed at the Pine avenue depot and others at the park. Special picnic badges of. a pale jrellOW hue were given to all. The park, which embraces more than ten acres, extending from Ocean ave nue north to Railway avenue, contains ti large number of spreading trees. Beneath the canopies afforded by their branches were the headquarters of the counties and the large cities of lowa. appropriate banners being suspended from the trees and books for register ing being supplied at most of thejn. Strolls through the park or along the ocean bluff, inspection of the grounds around the A. D. Myers residence across Ocean avenue from the park and the exchange of reminiscences Whlled away the morning hours for the picnickers. Basket dinners were spread on the soft lawns of tho park. Free coffee and lemonade were dis pensed without stint to all those wear- Ing the official badge of the society. The Municipal band played while the picnickers lunched. Cheerful smiles attested that the dinner was a suc cess, as diil the seatterment of papers and emptied boxes around the grounds. At 1:30 the program of the day be gan. The band gave up the bandstand to the speakers and officers of the as sociation and they took their places on the platform. J. A. Rominger of Long Beach, pres ident of the realty board, delivered an address of welcome. His subject was "lowa vs. California." He read news paper clippings giving lowans' lm~ preßßlons of California and spoke of the weather, grain raising, stock grow ing and educational facilities and other lines along which the states could be compared. Then he produced an enor mous ear of corn. A> BAB OF CORN "I knew you would be glad to see a golden ear of corn from lowa," he ■aid, "so I telegraphed to my brother and he expressed this huge ear to me. Isn't it a beauty? See how long, how full and how even It is—a typical lowa product. "Do you want to know where I really got this ear of corn?" he went on. •Why, I plucked if from a cornstalk not fur from my office right here in town. lowa isn't the only place, mv friends, where corn grows big. Cali fornia has got lowa skinned a mile. So why not live in California?" President E. Henderson of Pomona responded graciously to Mr. Romin ger's speech, the closing words of which constituted a welcome to his hearers and an invitation to make Long Beach their home. Presidl nt Henderson then called on the assocla secretary, C. H, Parsons, to read a letter from Senator J. P. Dolliver. The letter follows: "C, H. Parsons, secretary lowa as- BOclatlon of Southern California: In compliance with your suggestion of rei ent date I take great pleasure in giving most cordial greetings to the forme!- residents of this state now liv ing in California.

"A high-class citizenship has coma here from lowa," said he, "and has helped, more than the people from any The Man Who Is Going to Wreck the Southern Pacific Machine H In the course of his address at the rally in Blanchard hall last evening A. J. Wallace paid the following eloquent tribute to Hiram W. Johnson: "Up in the Dreamland rink tonight, in our wonderful northern city, a great throng of tense, earnest men are. lis tening to a remarkable man speaking the closing words of a great campaign. He has been, during five Weary months, - addressing audiences great and small. He has talked to the people in halls brilliantly illuminated and on dusty highways and road crossings where a dozen or a score would gather to hear his earnest words. "And what has he told the people everywhere? Has he talked of his fit ness for office, of his ambition to sit ■ In the place of power in a growing : state? No. Instead, very strangely, j he has not proclaimed himself nor talked of his virtues. "I think I have heard him now and again speak reverently of a great state. I have listened while he said that he was born in that state, that his children were born in that state, ami In words burning in their very intensity he has begged men to save the state that he loves from vicious politic :il entanglements that had cor rupted and debased it. "If Cicero is to be lauded because, With his matchless eloquence, he warned the Roman senators of the conspiracy of the great Cataline; If Demosthenes' name in to be forever held in reverence because of his burn ing philippics when he would save his beloved Greece from the Persian hordes, and if the name of Patrick H^nry is to be a synonym for enno bling patriotism in our homes and in our schools, then men shall be forced to admit that some corresponding meed of praise is due that man who for | other state, to develop this state. This Is especially true In Southern Califor nia." He gave an insight into his personal war record and that of the state of lowa, and then mentioned In com mendatory phrases James Wilson, Sen ator Cummins, Senator Dolliver and others of the famous sons of the Hawkeye state, all "molders of public opinion." IOWA STANDARD ■ "The probabilities are that Califor nia officeholders are not up to the standard of those in lowa," the mayor remarked, "but I would call on the lowa men to work to make them so. As mayor of Los Angeles I have had a hard Job, but I believe I have accom plished something. 1 have dene all I could to clean up the town." He took occasion to compliment the city of Long Beach and 'ti- mayor. Mrs. Eveline Robert! next sang "Down on the Buwanee River." The song 'was followed by an address by Col. .1. J. Bteadman of Hollywood, for merly of Council Bluffs, on the sub ject, "The lowa Association." C. C. Caves next spoke for Pomona. Major J. A. Donnell, deputy district attorney, spoke on "Do lowans Owe California Anything?" H. B. Taft of Sawtelle, a cousin of President Taft and an honorary presi dent of the lowa association, next de livered an extended address on the subject, "Should the Public Conscience Be Aroused by Preaching a Crusade Against Graft, Or ed and Wrong as Represented by Special Privilege and Graft?" in-, talk was a forceful and logical treatment of the subject and doubtless inspired his hearers to noble thoughts and lofty aspirations. Judge Curtis D. Wilbur, next called upon, spoke at random, but made one of the best speeches of the day, his talk being replete with witty "joshes" which took well with the crowd. Hon. p. S. Rishel, vice president of the so ciety, spoke on "What Mora] Heritage Should lowans Leave to Their Chil dren?" O. T. Nichols of Pasadena Bpoke on "The History of the Associa tion." Prof. Hamilton, also of the Crown city, spoke on the "Educational Advantages of lowa." The Rev. Rob ert J. Burdetti closed the program with a talk which as usual was full of humor.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MOHNING. ArOtTST 14, 3010. HIRAM XV.

TO TEST NEW PLAN FOR CHECKING DRUNKENNESS Court Will Ask Alcoholic Victims to Sign Pledge Perhaps the "cold, gray dawn of the morning after" will not be so cold and gray hereafter for the men arraigned in the police courts on charges of drunkenness. Police Judges Frederick son and Rose are willing to give those whose repentence is strong enough to make them sign a pledge another chance. W. J. Phillips, editor of California Voice, asked Judges Frederickson and Rose a few days ago to test the plan of suspending sentences of men convicted of drunkenness provinging they sign a card pledge. While Judge Frederickson is skeptical regarding the value of the plan, he is willing to try it. Judge Rose believes it will be effective. The pledge which will be used will contain the name of the court, the charge and the following statement and pledge: ■As evidence of my appreciation of the opportunity given me by the judge of the above named court to become a * —x To Keep Good Tailors Busy (- - \ SEMI-ANNUAL %^vlffl^W^ CLEARANCE JMy^PO^il A G REAT. bi S- booming sale >^^^^^^^ff^^^^^\jCV^Sm^ /m. of men's made-to-measure >^^77Ltf//)lk.\A^^ clothing that stirs things up in all our stores.
