Frank F. Bunker, Berkeley Su=

•; BERKELEY, June 20.— The board' of
education at ; its meeting tomorrow
night, will uphold, Frank F. Bunker,
superintendent of schools, and drop W.
H.- Bryan, teacher-; of chemistry and
physics in the ", high school, from the
rolls of the department. Bryan, at. the
last meeting of the board made N a_flght
through his attorneys for reinstate
ment, and the* matter =jwas put over for
two weeks. It is now definitely under
stood that the board .will back up
Bunker in: ousting Bryan.
Bryan declared to the board at the
hearing two' weeks, ago that while
Bunker had a right to drop any teacher
he sawrfit, suitable notice of his inten
tion should be given, and it was on
the ground \ of lack of time in which to
secure ; another position that he filed
objections to- Bunker's action before
the board.
Bunker claimed athat he waited .until
the last possible opportunity to judge
whether.' Bryan was making good as a
teacher- in "^the Berkeley high ' school
and fulfilling the high standards" re
quired of instructors, before the teacher
was notified that his -.resignation would'
be acceptable. ;; C I : •«'i j7 1 ,' \ i

When the matter is heard tomorrow
night it is likely -that Bryan and -his
attorney, W.\- C. Crlttenden, will make
a fight on another Tangle to the. situa

from the Palo Alto high school, where

KEEPING IN TOUCHMTIi HOME
TT IS wonderful how much satisfactfon can be
1 obtained from a talk over the Bell Telephone.
V A^ letter carries words; .but^ the Bell Service has been
brought up to such a point of perfection that the modula-

The cheery tones show that the talker is well and
in good spirits. The' call may come from a suburban
village or a distant city, but within thclimits of the
carrying power of the voice the Bell Service carries trier
tone as well. You get a personal interview with a- friend

AMPHIBIOUS BUG
PUZZLES SCIENCE
BERKELEY, June . 20. — The- buffalo
gnat, a queer little insect which can
easily crawl through. a mosquito net
ting on account of its small size, is
baffling the scientists of the university,
and Prof. W. B. Herjns, a member of
the department of entomology, will
spend next fall studying the life his
tory of the pest. •
•The Insect is unique in that it can
live under water and is equipped with
a special breathing apparatus which
enables it to remain submerged indefi
nitely without difficulty, and seek for
food. fejißß
Strangely enough, the insect always
is a habitat of swiftly running water,
and there it'develops in large swarms,
an annoyance to animal and man.
' Its particular interest to science ia
this activity, and it is known to at
tack cattle, causing a fever which in
the south has been known to be fatal.
On account of its diminutive form,
the gnat, which is also known as. the
black fly and \u25a0 turkey fly, can easily
penetrate the meshes of a wire screen
ing which would bar the mosquito.
Professor Iferms, who has been
asked by farmers in the vicinity of
Winters for aid, will not begin opera
tions against it this year, but will
study its habits this \u25a0 fall in prepara
tion for 'the campaign next summer.
HELPFUL HINTS ON
HAIR HEALTH*
Scalp and Hair Troubles
Generally Caused by
Carelessness
Dandruff is a contagious disease,
caused by a microbe, which also pro-
duces baldness. Xever use* a comb op
brush belonging to some one else. No
matter how cleanly the owner may be.
these articles may be Infected with mi-
crobes, which will infect your scalp. It
is far easier to catch hair microbes
than it is to get rid of them, and a sin-
gle stroke of an infected comb or brush
may well lead to baldness. Never try
on anybody else's hat. Many a hat band
is a resting place for microbes.

dandruff, itching scalp, falling hair or
baldness, we have a remedy which we

blood, which nourishes -the hair roots,
causing them to tighten and grow new-
hair. We want everybody who has'any
trouble with hair or scalp to know that

tonic and restorative in existence, and
