Colonel Waite Wins in Ac-
tion to (Recover Fee
From C. C. Henion
BERKELEY, Aug. 5. — Colonel Henry
de H. Waite, former commandant at th«>
Btate university and now a member of
the law firm of Keyes. Waite & Martin,
•won a victory in court today that
brought smiles to his face. He had
transferred a claim of $30 attorney's
fees due from C. C. Henion of San
Francisco to C. H. Patterson, -and Pat
terson appeared as plaintiff in the suit.
The court found for the plaintiff. "
The case occasioned a lot of comment
when Henlon filed, a cross complaint
several . weeks ago alleging that his
failure to pay Colonel Walte's bill was
because of > "Walte's failure Id make
srood a lot of alleged promises to
"Waite, according to Henion, had
Baid he could collect a big bill from
the relief committee in San .Francisco
last y«ar, because- he knew former
Mayor Phelan and other relief officials
Intimately. Henion that Waite'a
influence with these officials t had pro
duced .nothing, and so he declined to
pay "Waite.V charge .„ of |3Q for .ser.
vices rendered.
Colonel Waite testified today that he
withdrew from Henion'n service after
he learned that the latter's bill was
padded and that the 530 charge was
made for trips undertaken by him in
Henion's interest before the discovery
of the padding.

Berkeley.,* Contractor Says
She Separated Him
and Sweetheart
Troubles Begin When Key
Route Train Strikes
OAKLAND, Aug. 5. — To the propen
sity to "butt in," alleged to haVe been
shown by his landlady, Mrs. L. D. Tur
ner of 1936 Berkeley .way. Berkeley,
and her supposed ' desire to Separate
him' from his- sweetheart, Miss Helen
Taylor, Howard Mendel, an electrical
contractor, ascribes his arrest and de
tentipn on an, insanity charge.
Mendel said .that since his conva
lescence from serious injuries received
when struck by a Key lloute train re
cently, Mrs. Turner apparently had
been divided between her convictions
that he was Insane and her anxiety
to,, break., up . the attachment existing
between him and Miss Taylor.
: The climax came a few days agD,
Mendel 'said, when, overcome by the
heat of the day and the heavy gar
ments which he wore, he fell In the
street in a faint. . He said he was
given a dipperf ul of whisky and two
injections of morphine to revive him
and then vras taken to his rooms.
The efforts of a fellow lodger to help
him, he said, only hurt the, recently
knitted fracture of his ribs" and to
gether with the whisky and morphins
and the pain, caused him to rave a
little. At this juncture. Mendel de
clared, Mrs. Turner called in Dr. Rob
ert C. Hecktor, who swore out an in*
sanity charge against him.
Mendel asserted that since June 2.
when the accident occurred, Miss Tay
lor had shown her devotion to him
and upon her testimony he relied to
be cleared of the insanity charge.
Mrs. Turner said tonight that she
had nursed Mendel without pay and
given him food and lodging gratis for
many weeks, b«cause he seemed poor
and helpless. She showed scratches' on
her face and arms* where Mendel, ac
cording to her story, had wounded her
in his Insane frenzy during the last
week. She endured his irrational be
havior until her husband insisted that
Mendel be taken in charge by the au
Mrs. Turner denied having interfered
In any of Mendel's love affairs. Sh3
explained that Miss Helen Taylor, mc c
tioned by Mendel, was a recently di
vorced woman whose married name
was Mrs. Helen Martin. Mrs. Martin
had visited Mendel at the Turner home
and the landlady's sole interest in these,
visits was to see that they were con
ventionally correct. Mendel, she de
clared was practically penniless anl
had won thfe pity of the Turners, whicit
accounted for her permitting him to re.
main In the house without paying." - •'\u25a0'-

mous edible of 'the^circus and railroad
train \u25a0' "butchers" afe expected now to
rise up and call Professor M. E. Jaffa
blessed, for Dr. Jaffa, the eminent food
expert of the stat« v university, has ! just
issued a scientific- bulletin- oh nuts In
which he declares, .unequivocally, that
there is more protein in 10 cents' worth
of peanuts than in a porterhouse steak
arid six times as much energy in the
"goobers" as in the beefsteak which
housewives pay a small fortune for.
\u25a0Professor Jaffa/ is an authority *on
the values of foods. He has conducted
elaborate! experiments- during the last
few years, u&ing different foods 6n dif
ferent human 'subjects, and his bulletin,
just issued by the United States agri
cultural department at'.Washingtori, is
In part the result 'of his experiments.
Dr.\ Jaffa discusses the alleged indi
sestlbillty of nuts in hts bulletin and
incidentally gives a knockout blow to
the old fashioned notion that *alt,
eaten with nuts, makes them more
easily digested.
Some of*Prbfesisor Jaffa's paragraphs
on nuts, Including his. declaration that
peanuts excel porterhouse steak in the
matter of energy producing material,
are as follows! \u25a0 \u25a0 -
Wljen ronsldprlnjnuto it Is. readily observed
that 10 cents will Jmij- about the same amount
of nut ' protPlri as animal protein, except in tho
ease of <-hwp and sklra milk. If .spent for
ppanutfe It will i purchase more than twice tlte
protein anil *ls times the enentjr that oolild be
bougUt for the same expenditure for porterhouse
steak. It is of moit> than passing Interest to
note that 10 cents' worth of pPnnUts 'rill contain
niore than fouf ounces of prbtcih and 2, 11T
calorics of enersr. which lo more protein energy
than !s rum tKlied b}' rations regarded as ade
quate for a day. \u25a0 , \u25a0 \u25a0 .
Although peanuts supply proleih and energy
for a smaller sum than bread, they arc out
ranked by dried bcnnsi. which, at 5 cents a
pound, will supply for 10 cehts more than 200
proms of protein and 3.200 calories of. enew.
If more pi-aunts and dried beans were used by
frultvians theif diet ; would be . enriched and
the cost decreased. * .. . . ;
With the exception, perhap*. of dried beans
and ehpese no' food material has the reputation
for iDdifcestifolllty that has been accorded to
nuts. Discomfort from . them is largely due to
Insufficient mastication , and ;to . the fact that
nuts are often eaten when not needed, as after
a hearty meal or late at night, though it Is
undoubtedly true tlint nut protein :as ordinarily
eaten is not so easily or bo completely digested
as meat protein
Very likely the concentration of nuts with but
3 to 5 per. cent vcater, as compared to raeatcou
talning from 50 to 7Q per cent water, is a con
tributing eausrv IT cartful consideration were
jjlveu to this matter,^- and If attention were paid
to . the proper use of nuts and tlielr correct
plac? iv the ' diet, there would be less unfa
vorable oomraent on their dtge'stlblllty.
Results of investijratlonß .carried on with
fruit and nut ctiet at the California agricultural
experiment station afford- tentative . conclusions
rfrarrting the thoroughness of digestion which
slK»uld be- of value, to those' who -wish' to Use
nuts as a "staplo. article, of, food father than an
occasional article of diet. la riew of the. facts

The First national bank bid on a 30
days' option on half 'of-. the bonds at

To Meet ' Today to Consider
Resumption of the
The strike of the telephone operators
and the linemen of Tocal 151, which
was declared off last week, may be de
clared "on" again, for • the operators
claim that the telephone company did
not live up to a verbal agreement and
humiliated the members of the union
when they applied for work yesterday.
The company officials claimed yester
day that they knew of no agreement,
either verbal or ' otherwise, with the
union, and stfch applicants for work A*
appeared yesterday, were put through
the regular series of interrogations
such- as all applicants " for work are
subjected Mo. The . officials further
claimed. that the company was In need
of no more linemen, having filled up
the ranks from the new union recently
formed under charter of the American
federation of labor.
The members of the telephone op
erators' union reported at the tele
phone offices yesterday for work, but
wefe Informed that they would be re
quired to make formal application. The
nanies lof a number were taken and
they "were Informed that when needed
they would bo sent for." '\u25a0• " •
1 The operators decided to hold a meet
ing this afternoon for the purpose of
reconsidering the action of last Friday
by 'which the strike -was' declared off.
The members Of electrical •workers'
union, local N0.' 151, will take action in
the matter at a special meeting to be
held tonight.
The position of*lsl Is peculiar in the
fact that the union struck against the
telephone company and its action was
declared unconstitutional by Its na
tional officers. The union refused to
rescind its strike action and the na
tional body granted «i charter to the
dissenting members of 151, who there
upon Went to work for the telephone
corporation, under sanction of the in
ternational body, which .meantime re
voked the charter of 151.
Superintendent Phillips of the tele
phone company said yesterday that the
action of the operators' union as a body
was a matter of entire Indifference to
him.' He hoped to see. he said,- many
of the old employes back at the switch*
boards again.
"I made no promise to take one back
or one hundred. We- ccarn r use mor«
operators and would be. glad' to have
our former employes return until the
ranks are filled up again. That is all
there is to it. We will certainly not
take on 'any help without asking the
usual questions which any prospective
employer has a right to ask of any
prospective: employe."
