Will Deliver Three Series of Lectures at Summer School of the University « HE IS AN AUTHORITY Professor Frederick "J. Tur ner Will Tell the Story of America to Students The trouble arose over the fact that Arada engaged his brother to help him repair the roofs of the buildings at the Emeryville racetrack. He collected un ion wages for his brother, but main tained that his brother was only doing helper's work. The union warned him and then fined him, first $11 and after ward $25, for persisting in retaining his brother in the position. Arada then de manded that his brother be allowed to join the union. This was denied, and* he then demanded the money back he had paid in fines. This was returned and he was expelled from the union. He found that he was then unable to get work and began an action to get back into the union again. Shinglers' Union No. 1 of this city has been ordered by the Superior Court to reinstate an expelled member. A writ of mandate directed to the union and its secretary by Judge Ogden this afternoon commands, it to rescind its action expelling Thomas Arada from the organization. The Judge held that there Is no provision in the constitu tion and by-laws of the union provid ing for such expulsion. The order is the result of an action begun by Arada against the union to ti tnpel it to reinstate him to member ship. The trial has consumed several days, and the testimony developed the fact that Arada had been a member of the union and had been expelled be cause he had employed his non-union brother to help him. The question whether the work per formed by Fillmore Arada. the brother, was such work as the union had Juris diction over was not a matter the court took into consideration. Judge Ogden based his decision upon a review of the proceedings of the union in regard to the expulsion of the member. An examination of the constitution failed to show that there was any provision for the expelling of a member for em ploying non-union workmen. Had there been such a provision, Judge Ogden said, the union would have had the right to expel him. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1016 Broadway, June 22.

The child's right leg was severely crushed, but not broken. Mrs. Maguire lives at, 424*4 Shotwell street, San Francisco. Re garding the accident, she said: "I saw the cars coming together, but it did not seem possible that the motor men would let them come into collis ion. It is so clear at the crossing that there was no need for it. It was a great piece of carelessness." Motorman Huckstable said he thought he had the right of way and sent his car ahead because he had counted on the other man stopping. WOUNDED CAKED FOR. Neither motorman checked his car as he approached the crossing and the result was the Inevitable smash, the cars striking each other at the con verging corners of their front ends. Mrs. Maguire and her daughter were sitting on the front end of the Alca traz-avenue car, outside. They were almost directly in line of the Tele graph-avenue car's approach • and it seemed that they would be crushed to death. But the cars, striking together on their corners, saved them.

They were full of pas sengers, but all escaped injury with the exception of Mrs. Frank Maguh-e and her daughter Phyllis Maguire, aged 6 years, both oLwhom received severe cuts and bruises. The escape of the mother and daughter was marvelous, as they were in a position that exposed them to the full force of the contact. Thd tracks are clear of obstructions where they cross at the Intersection of the two avenues, and the men in charge could see the streets on all sides for a block. Each motorman says his car had the right of way and that the other should have stopped at the crossing. The pair started toward the factory together. Waite insists that as they entered the shadow of the building he was suddenly struck by Gonzales. who had turned quickly upon his compan ion and knocked him senseless. Waite's garments were rifled.
