Plans for Physical Training Set
Forth in Ringing Reso=
Amateur athletic league and student
Well scattere dthrough the audience
•were girls from the various high school
basket ball teams, intent on securing
more inviting- conditions for a thorough
ajid better development of their field
of athletic endeavor. Representing the
student population of the city, Milton
• Marks, president of the student body
of Lowell high school, made a sincere
plea for greater recognition of con
ditions, from those in a position to
remedy them. Without directing crit
icism against the work of the city of
ficials, it was clearly shown, by com
parison with the situation in other
cities, that the local physical training
.of school children amounts to nothing
at all.
Permanent Committee
Resolutions expressing the sentiment
.of the evening were presented by
•Chairman Hlckey and Milton Marks and
the campaign for reform crystallized
Itself into tba establishment of a per
manent committee composed of the
representatives of the high schools and
others to be named by Chairman
Hickey. On this committee will be ap
pointed a delegate selected by the prin
. cipal of each high school, probably a
member of the faculty of the school, so
that supervision may be maintained
over the work of the committee by the
school department at all times. An ef
fort will be made to have the board of
education avdopt the suggested system
rf school credits for student athletics
and to allow one present member of
each hiprh school faculty take in hand
the physical training of the students of
his respective schooL Principal Joseph
O'Connor of the Mission high school,
owing to illness, was unable to bs in
attendance, but expressed his hearty
approval of the movement in a commu
nication to the meeting addressed to
Chairman Hickey.
Lesson of Defeat
Insisting that the nation looks to the
rising generation in such great civiliza
tion centers as San Francisco, to pre
serve its constitutions and perpetuate
its past achievements, the several
speakers pointed the lesson in the de
feat at Stanford and urged an Imme
diate change in the pervailing condi
•tlons. Those to address the meeting
/"were A, J. Cloud, head of the English
department of the Lowell high school,
and president of the Amateur athletic
league; President Thomas R. Banner
man of the board of education. Physi
cal Director Frank Bock of the Oakland
high school. Principal Cecil W. Mark of
the Crocker grammar school, Milton
Marks of the Lowell high school, James
Fnrgeson of the board of education
and Chairman Joseph Hickey, secretary
of the playgrounds commission.
The gathering was called to order by
Chairman Hickey, who briefly reviewed
the situation as it effects the schools
of the city and advanced the suggested
reforms which have been made since
the campaign for changes had been
launched by the school athletes. He
pledged his support as secretary of the
commission and , outlined a plan by
which the asked for relief might be
pained. The first speaker to be *pre-<
• sented was President Cloud of the A.
A. L. In part he said:
"Now that we have the ball rolling
for a. reform In the administration <>f
• school athletics and physical training
we must not let it stop. This is a mat
ter of vital importance to the com
munity and one which every parent In
the city is. or should be, deeply inter
ested. Let us now keep forging ahead
until we have captured a few meets
from the teams outsiae of our city and
show that the genuine San Francisco
- ppirlt is In the movement. The proper
physical training of the school student
does more, perhaps, to build up the
character of the individual than any
thing else received in school days.
"Xobody appreciates this more than
the Instructors themselves, who come
In daily contact with the mass of
youngsters In our public institutions of
learning:. We have been constantly ad
vancing in athletic ideals and today
have a cleaner athletic spirit than at
any time before. Here we have made
I slow and painful progress in the fos
tering of physical training and our boys
have suffered for want of proper and
adequate facilities.
"The local enthusiasts are confronted
with mean problems in athletic train
ing, and not th€ least of these is the
size of his purse. The only big field is
located too far away, and I have seen
th« football steams kicking a ball out
at the park grounds when the tog was
*o thick the course of the ball could
not be determined until it hit the
ground- It takes an hour out of the
time the boys have to get to the
ground from most of the schools and
this discourages most or them. In at
tempting to find an outlet for their
physical energy they are forced to go
to the extreme limits of the city for
room. W© have in hand a wonderful
opportunity to do good and it should
not be neglected. We need adequate
training under the right kind of pro
fessional instructors.
"I am strongly opposed to profes
sional coaches. It is a baneful system
In our school life. If the. boards of
education would kive half an eye to
the knowledge instructors have of ath
letics in making selections for school
faculties this could be overcome,
"Get men and women into the de
partment who wilLtake a live and ac
tive interest in the physical welfare
of the students and half the problem
Is solved. The men and women we
would then send out into the world
would be true representatives of the
•race and generation. T"he state Is look-
Ing for these men and wome nof the

The folloirlnfc resolution* 'were unanimously adopted last 'evening; at
the mass meeting held In the Interest of Improved physical training and
public school athletics t \u25a0_
Whereas, the proper mental and moral development of the youth of
San Francisco can be successfully accomplished only by the existence,
along with this training of ?he niind, of a systematic plan for the phy
sical development of the boys and girls of this city; and
Whereas, facilities for the proper recreation of the youth of San
Francisco are inadequate and athletic grounds for the accommodation
of the schools are unsuited to the needs of the communities; be it
Resolved, that this meeting place itself on record as. favoring the
following course of action for the physical betterment of the school
children of this city: . ,> „ -' \
First—Acquiring suitable grounds in the vicinity, of each of the
high schools by leasing for a period of years and improving said
grounds, by the construction of ovals, ball'grounds and other '.athletic
facilities, for the general physical improvement "of all the pupils of the
Second— Assigning to each of the high schools an official physical
director. T
Third — Allowing school credit for time spent conscientiously in
gymnasium or field work under the direct control and supervision of
the physical director. Be it further •.'
Resolved, that this meeting memorialize the proper authorities of
the city and county of San Francisco to use such available funds as they
possess toward placing the foregoing plan in operation, and that this
assembly lend its united effort toward improving the general physical
status of our school pupils through this campaign for'better facilities.
Respectfully submitted, MILTON MARKS;
Chairman High School' Committee.

to submit to domination by such a com
bination. Any such surrender, he
warned them, meant >the failure of the
Taft policies and the downfall of con
servative control, not only in congress
but in the republican party generally.
Some one reminded Aldrich that sen
ators then gathered together were not
in agreement on all points. He re
plied that they must get together,
otherwise, he said, congress would ad
journ without accomplishing a single
Item of the Taft program.
The entire tone of this conference
was belligerent toward the insurgents.
This was the dominant note: "Let us
get together and stand as a unit
against every insurgent proposition. If
the insurgents propose anything good
we'll take it over bodily and put it
through as our own; if they propose
anything bad we'll stamp it out."
It was stated that Taft had been'
kept fully advised of the situation and
was entirely in sympathy with the plan
and virtually pledged to It. It was
said in behalf of the conference that
while the ifieasures resorted to were
heroic they were necessary In defense
of the administration and the integrity
of the republican party and as a means
to any effective legislation whatever.
To Senator Alrich was given the
leadership of the new movement.
Aldrich left late today for Rhode
Island, and will not return before Tues
day. - The plan meanwhile is to "mark
time." Every hour brings additional
evidence of the widening breach be
tween the regulars and the insurgents
In both houses. Conservative repub
lican leaders, with hardly an exception,
confess that in neither house is there a
coherent majority. As matters stand
tonight, the prospect from the repub
lican point of view is anything but
alluring. The inability of the two fac-*
tlons of the republican party to get to
gether is the immediate cause of dan
ger to the legislative program. Each
side blames the other. The striking
thing about the. whole situation is the
evidently sincere conviction by each
party that it is, itself, loyal to repub
licanism and wholly In the right, and
the other is either willfully recreant or
fanatically self-deceived, and is, x more,
or less consciously, a band of public
Meanwhile the democrats in both
houses are looking on with a "go It
husband, go it bear" expression.
They say that "whichever loses .we
win/ or as Senator aßlley put it the
other day on the floor, "The only policy
we have in this affair is to keep both of
you fellows irritated."
Majority Leader Sereno "E. Payne of
New York sounded the only optimistic
note that could be heard in a canvass
of the^hoiise. "I haven't seen or heard
anything on the house side which* indi
cates a great split In the party," said
Payne. "Have you?" he inquired, with
a broad smile. "I think those fellows
in the senate are unduly alarmed."
On the other hand Representative
Vreeland of New York, one of the ultra
conservatives, said:
"This Insurgency is not 'becoming'
serious. It is already serious."
Representative Needham, a conserv
ative from California, said: "Insurg
ency In its national aspect is rapidly
becoming antl-Taft and anti-protection.
When this fact becomes generally
known there will be a change in the
sentiment of the country regarding it."
Practically all the insurgents in the
house attributed the split in the party
to alleged intolerance of such leaders
as Cannon and Aldrich.

Arthur/ H. Anderson Shoots
Mrs. Beatrice Otfern and
Then Ends His Life
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
OAKLAND, May 4. — Mrs. Beatrice Ot
tern, the talented and'handsome wife
of B. P. Otter, a retired officer of the
States army, was murdered this
afternoon at 1 o'clock by her compan
ion, Arthur H. Anderson, 40 years old,
who is reputed to be a wealthy oil oper
ator and land owner of Coalinga.
Anderson fired several shots at Mrs.
Ottern in their two room apartment at
664 Tenth street, and when the woman
fell dying at his feet, he fired the last
ball from his revolver into his own
head. He died at the receiving hos
pital without regaining consciousness.
Mrs. Ottern was 24 years of age, the
petted daughter of a San- Francisco
family. Identification was made by her
sister, Mrs. Eunice J. Krider, who lives
at 1120 Seventh- street.
Anderson rented the apartments at
664 Tenth street three weeks ago, telling
Mrs. Mary Snow, the. landlady, that his
name was Arthur Rickerts. He had
Mrs. Ottern with him and. introduced
her as his wife.
The couple lived in the apartment
for two weeks, when Mrs. Ottern left
for a few days. She is believed to
bave gone to Bakersfield, intending,
according to Mrs. Kreider, to leave An
derson. She returned this morning and
telephone to Anderson, who left the
house to come back in a short while
with the young woman on his arm.
Shortly afterward M,rs. Snow heard
the couple^ quarreling behind their
closed doors. Anderson seemed to be
reproachful and Mrs. Ottern, sobbing,
would break his talk with. the remon
strance, "That's not true."
The landlady listened a moment and
went about her work, supposing the
infelicity would end quietly and she
was terrified when she heard revolver
shots. .*
Four Pistol Shots Heard •
Four times the revolver sounded and
after, the first shot Mrs. Snow heard the
young woman behind the locked door
scream, "For God's sake help mci" "'."
There was nothing else spoken. The
revolver reports ceased and Mrs. Snow,
too frightened to unlock the door; ran
into the street for help. She met two
carmen, R. F. Longwell of 4214 Glenn
avenue and H. IL.Canby of 673% Tenth
street, to whom she appealed. They
called Police Sergeant Sill and the
three men br"oke In the door of the
Mrs. 1 Ottern lay dead from a bullet in
her brain and Anderson was on the floor
unconscious and dying with a pistol
near his hand.
Up to this time nobody who knew the
couple in the Tenth street apartment
house suspected that they were not
husband and wife.
Deputy Coroner Sargent found in
"Rickert's" pockets a certificate of de
posit on the Bank of Coalinga for
$166.70, bearing and indorsed with the
name of B. F. Meyers. Numerous let
ters, all sent to Coalinga, bore the
name of A. H. Anderson. There was
no way of telling which of three names
Rickert, Meyers or Anderson was that
of the dying man.
From Mrs. Kreider came the story of
Mrs." Ottern's life. When 20 years old
she became the bride of \B.F. Ottern,
the army officer, who was 60 years old.
The soldier separated from his wife
shortly after the marriage, which took
place April 9, 1906.
A ring found by the coroner bears
the inscription "B. F. O. to B. A. H.,
April, 1906." j It is a wedding ring and
was given by the former. army officer
to his bride Beatrice.
Anderson, said Mrs. Kreider, : had
ample reason for assuming a pseudo
nym on coming here. He had a wife
and two daughters living at Coalinga,
where he owned 1,100 acres of valuable
land. Tidings of the tragedy have been
sent to that town.
' Mrs. Kreider, when seen tonight at
her home, said:
"My sister and B. F. Ottern were
married four .years ago in this city.
He is now living . InSSan Francisco and
is a retired army i officer, on pension.
Shortly after their marriage my sister
sued for a divorce in :the "courts of: this
city on the ground of incompatibility
and the case is still pending. The final
decree should come within the , next
two or three months." .
Mrs. Kreider refused to go into de
tails concerning, Anderson and her sis
ter. .: She admitted. that she knew that
they had been living together^ and that
they had; quarrels - because her. sister
was inclined to seek diversion away
from: home. . -Mrs.. Ottern ; was a fine
musician ", and enjoyed .the . company, of
those near> her own age. :

Washington Will Be Plastered
With Announcement of
Boosters' Coming
Country Continues to Marvel; at
Feat of Raising, Nearly
$5,000,000 for Fair
(The finance committee of the Panama-Pacific
international exposition begs 'the indulgence of
.fthose subscribers whoso names have not vet ap
peared In the lists published in the dally news
papers. There ig-a vast amount of detail neces
sary .In connection with the collection of sub
scriptions and. the large corps of clerks has
not been able to keep np with the work. All
of the names will be published and if yours has
not it will be within a few days.) «
The arrival in Washington, D. C, of
the California delegation which is to
present the claims of San Francisco for
the holding of the Panama-Pacific ex
positron will be heralded in that city
by placards and advertisements, the
scheme being a part of the ( campaign
to force the attention of .congress to
the enthusiasm and determination be
hind the movement.
The city from end to end will be
plastered with large posters bearing
the inscription, "San -Francisco, 1915,"
and in every streetcar there will be dis
played similar advertisements. The
posters are the gift of J. Charles Green
and the streetcar cards that of Fred C.
Scotford, manager of the Pacific rail
ways advertising company. The scheme
was outlined at a meeting of the San
Francisco advertising men's association
at the Techau tavern. When it was
learned that the California delegation
was to arrive in Washington Thursday
there was a sentiment expressed to aid
them in some wiiyv and Green arid Scot
ford Immediately offered to telegraph
their eastern representatives to set out
the advertisements.
"Washington, when it awakes Thurs
day morning, will know that the San
Franciscans are coming," said Green.
Apart from the advertising scheme
the members of the association 'raised
their original subscription of $1,000 to
56.240. While the advertising men
were meeting, M. T. Freitas of the
Portuguese-American bank was work
ing in a different field, taking up a
subscription from the Portuguese col
ony, the result of the day's work net
ting $6,600. , ' *
The official proclamation to the world
to visit the fair was made by B. Lef
fingwell, secretary to the mayor, yes
terday. In it he outlined~the scheme
of the -exposition and formally opened
the gates of the city to all those who
would care to enter.
The journey of the delegation
through the country is being met at all
stages by the -greatest kindliness and
enthusiasm on the part of the citizens
of the various states. A party of busi
nessmen of Laramie, Wyo., burst into
the dining car at breakfast yesterday
to give a cheer and handshake and
offers of help. On their heels trooped
another party of Denver newspaper
men, together with a citizens' delega
tion headed by Mayor Cooke. At Jules
burg Junction there was another re
ception. ;*
At North Platte, Neb., Mayor Patter
son, leading an unusually -large num
ber of his fellow townsmen, -j met ••the
train witln cheers and well wishes;; and
similar, scenes^ wefce enacted at Grand
Island .and -Fremont. The chief : topic
of the conversations and the subject of
the speeches . wasytha feat of raising
more than $4,000,000 in two hours. This
fact" seems to have made the deepest
impression'on the country at large and
the general sentiment is that/ a city
which is so ready to help itself ought
to receivs federal" encouragement.
The delegates will 'give a big banquet
at 'the Metropolitan club Friday night,
at which the guests will include sena
•tors, congressmen, diplomats and news
papermen. Senator Perkins will pre
side and Governor Gillett will voice the
sentiments of the state.
A request was sent out by acting
Mayor Kelly to the heads of all munic
ipal departments asking them to aid in
the work of the Panama-Pacific com
mittee and to post blank subscription
lists in their offices so that triose under
•them who wish to purchase stock will
have an. opportunity of doing so. "The
executive council has decided ' to accept
no single payment of less than $5 in
order to save the big expense and labor
of book keeping. This means that a
person, buying a single share of stock
may pay for it in two payments. '
Must Throttle Vice
That San Francisco, like Seattle, will
have go through a process of civic
"house cleaning" in advance of the
exposition if this event is to be a suc
cess will be\ one of the arguments
against the extension of vice offered
at the mass meeting to -be held in :
Dreamland rink next Sunday, afternoon.
The claim of the women who are be
hind the movement for the better
ment of the moral' condition of San
Francisco is that the eastern home
builder and investor likely to be at
tracted here by the exposition will be
driven away to other places where
there is not as much temptation for his
children. Tt is argued that San Fran
cisco is losing many valuable home
builders solely on this account. _ ; .
The general committee in charge of
the mass meeting is composed of Mrs.
John. S. • Merrill, Miss KatherineNHit-^

To the People of San Francisco t
In consonance with the organized
effort of the Panama-Pacific expo
sition committee to attract to San
Francisco the great world's fair,
which is to celebrate the completion
of the Panama canal in 1915 and
seeking further to' crystallize the
world wide sentiment that seems to
ppint to. San Francisco as the place
for holding this\ prodigious celebra
tion, I do now, as the acting, mayor
of San Francisco and In behalf of
the duly elected mayor,. who Js now
in Washington, D.C., s upon public
business, .issue to the citizens of
San Francisco the following procla
mation, and. submit for their, earnest
consideration the- following facts:
The exposition, which will mark
the completion of the Panama canal,
will beyond all question be the
greatest the world' has ever known. :
Every civilized nation • is materially
and sentimentally interested in the
event which will make the year 1915
a historical landmark for posterity
ever to remember. -The opportunity
for San Francisco "to. gather within
her gates the flower of citizenship
from .every country on v the. globe*
wll^never thus present itself again.
The-vast benefits 'that must accrue
from, this opportunity to show the
world at. large the wonderful beau
ties, the natural attractions and
the unparalleled resources and
v riches of Californla.and. her Queen
City at the Golden gate are not to
be estimated In figures. The Pan
ama-Pacific exposition in 1915 will
beyond all question make, of San
Francisco. a London of the western
hemisphere and it is therefore ob
| vious that the; project should ap
peal with, irresistible strength -to
the good people of this* city,, then to
the state and finally to the Pacific
coast as a" whole. f
In view of ; these facts and par
ticularly, in consideration of the
wonderful achievements of the few
public spirited merchants and citi
zens who have been able on short
notice to organize a fund of nearly
$3,000,000 as the first step toward
securing this fair, \u25a0it is earnestly
and sincerely requested by the chief

executive of this city that each and
every citizen put his or her shoulder
to the wheel, thereby giving sub
stantialf impetus to the general
movement which shall bring ad
vancement and priceless develop
ment to our city. It is the plain
duty of . every man and woman in
San Francisco who can afford to
subscribe to~the Panama-Pacific ex
position fund to give all the aid
within his or her power. A sub
scription given now is not only a
boon to the exposition project itself,
but is a conservative . and safe in-
vestment, the returns from which
must be manifold.
.Added to the appeal that has been
issued by the mayor to employes of
this city and county it is now desir
able that a general proclamation is
sue to the people In the hope that
public interest may be stimulated In
the work of gathering subscriptions
for the Panama-Pacific exposition
No. contribution is too small to
give for this splendid cause. The
response thus far has been amaz
ingly generous and has favorably
impressed the .country at large.
There is much money yet to be
raised, and your personal aid must
be depended upon In the .work. As
much credit belongs to.the poor man
who can spare one dollar for this
project as to the. rich man who sub
scribes his. thousands. .Let .good
feeling prevail and let all those who
can subscribe come forward now and
put down their names. You have a
long time in which to pay the money,
but the committee must know that
the cash will be available when the
proper time arrives.
In submitting 1 this appeal to the
general public the mayor desires to
express the sincere belief that all
personal differences and all conflict
ing opinions should be suspended
and laid aside and that this power
ful community as, a mighty unit
should work unceasingly, beginning
with this day, for an early and dis
tinct success of the greatest fair
the world may ever know. Very
respectfully, J. A. KELLY,
Acting Mayor, City~ and County of
San, Francisco.

fornjer secretafy of the navy. They
arrived at 1:30 p. m. and are due in
Washington tomorrow at 4:40 p. m.
The purpose of the trip is to gain
federal sanction of the exposition.
Governor Gillett, in arguing in fa
vor of San Francisco, declares it would
lead many persons to take the trip
from the east via the new canal.
President David Starr Jordan
Still Maintains the, Views
He Formerly Expressed
{.Special Ditpatch to The Call]
"The Human Harvest," or "War and
Manhood," one of the notable ad
dresses by the president, of Stanford
university, was this morning delivered
to a packed house at the last regular
student assembly of the year.
President Jordan took occasion to
remark during the course of his talk
that he had not in any way changed
his views regarding the evil effects of
war on the French nation, the ex
pression of which at the graduation
exercises at Bryn Mawr last .year
caused an angry outbreak from a pa
triotic Frenchman who happened to
be in the audience and whicb caused
a storm of discussion to be raised over
the country.
During his address Doctor Jordan
showed the effects of war on all Euro
pean countries, beginning with Rome
and tracing the evil effects in all the
countries that had been engaged In
any of the great wars, saying that
there was not a foot of ground in all
Europe that was not the hiding place
of some skulh representing one of the
flower of some country killed in war
He said that the evil effects of war
were not so much in the suffering and
distress that they cause, great as these
might be. as in the fact that it was
always the best men in the country,
the strongest, bravest and most daring
whose lives were sacrificed in the great
International struggles.

STOCKTON 1 , May 4.— After 2i
years of married life A. B. Tread
well, well known politician and
justice of the peace, was made the de
fendant in a divorce suit filed In the
superior court of San Joaquin county
today by his wife. Mrs. Nettle E.

alleged, and Mrs. Octavine Taver. a
widow residing at 2307 California
street, San Francisco, was named as co
Toe complaint, which is on the secret
fire/ of the superior court contain*
a' recital of many escapades of
the justice, who. in spite of his three
score years, is alleged to have cut as
wide a swath as any gay young blade.
It is Charged that July 14, 19<re. the
hero of many political campaigns met
and became infatuated with Mrs. Taver
and that thereafter he paid her de
voted attention.
It is further charged that because of
his passionate attachment for the widow
Treadwell ignored his own home an<i/
spent most of his time In her company.^
Mrs. Treadwell asks for $150 a month
alimony and $300 counsel fees. This
demand is based on the allegation that
from his office as justice the defendant
draws a monthly salary of $300 besides
fees. Mrs. Treadwell, who is 50 years
of age, says that she suffers from
asthma and is therefore unable to earn
sufficient for her own support.
The suit was filed this afternoon by
Attorney "William F. Herron of San
Francisco and was set for hearing
May 16.
The Treadwells were married In Oak
