Four University of California
Fraternity Men Tell Story
of Sufferings
BERKELEY, June 22.-v-Four mem
bers of the ill fated desert^ party that
endea\-ored to cross the sands of Borax
lake on the edge ofthe Death valley
last week arrived here this morning
and told the story of their suffertagand
of the death Qf Charles S. Davidson,
head of \u25a0tlteVparty'of University of "Cali
fornia graduates," in-tho fiery wastes of
alkali. Herbert Masters, the first of
the survivors to return, reached this
city yesterday.
The Berkeleyans who arrived today
are Thomas A. Graves, David Bunker,
Richard's. Badger, all members of the
Phi Kappa P.«i fraternity, and J. P.
Baudin of 666 Thirty-second .street,
Oakland. Norman C. Stines was de
layed by business which necessitated
his remaining in Mojave for a few days
longer. • , . ; , ,
, Graves, ( according .to the story told
today, was the' lirst of the party to
reach water after, the long walk over
the desert had - prostrated Davidson,
the leader of the party. He was the
strongest, and when it was decided
that each man should go for himself
and try to save his own life he rushed
forward for water with which to succor
the others. »
Graves said that the spring he found
in a deserted camp was so filled with
sulphur that he could hardly swallow
it, but on account of the extreme heat
and. his terrific thirst he was forced to
do so. : ' ' :
Badger, who remained with Davidson
after he fell fainting in the desert,
tried to resuscitate his leader with am
monia. This, however, was of no avail,
and Davidson died with but-little., suf
fering. A rude cross on whiclMiis name
was inscribed was erected on the desert
two miles from Searles to mark his
grave. | _...': \u25a0*? ;;. ' .. \u25a0 , .. "v .: '\u25a0.. .: ;

Daring Juggler Spandoni and

• Make Lively Bill /
OAKLAND,; June • 22.— There are ' two
main features at the Oakland Orpheum
this week-^fun and. thrills. >The thrills
fili the greater part •of the bill, al
though the humorous is not scarce. No
act on, the bill supplies more excitement
to^t>ie audience than does Paul" Span
doni, the juggler. : : t
He Is said' by. the management to be
the most accomplished and daring jug
gler that ever came here; the .verdict
of the spectators agrees. • He tosses
heavy cannons balls as if ;' the. things
were pills, and he catches on' his neck
missiles that would < crush most men's
skulls. When Spandoni is on the stage
there are thrills until the curtain con
ceals him. ; . ; >
More thrills come when Allen Atwell
appears as the Japanese spy seeking
to discover American army secrets in
the sketch, . "The Code Book." Atwell
does a clever bit of character^vork and
he; is able.to hold his audiences spell
bound. ,
• Edward Abeles, playing the part of
an Italian mute in "Self-Defense," the
remarkable Broadhurst sketch, is like
wise a thriller. The persons who watch
the clever Ncha'racter actor are truly
thrilled when the lad proves to^the
district attorney,, in pantomime, that

which he is charged,

Council Refuses to Shut Down
the Pumpers at Night
ALAMEDA, June 22.— The proposed
ordinance to prohibit the operation of
windmills between the hours of 11 p. m.
and 6 am. has been laid over indefl
intely by the city council. . ,-- .;
The .measure was drafted at the in
stance of a number of residents, who
•declared that their sleep was disturbed
by the creaking and groaning of wind
mills that worked in the night.
; failure of the city council to
regulate the windmills is expected to
result in'arrests of owners of some of
the- pumping plants. The complain
ants assert that the, owners of wind
mills that create slumber destroying
noises are maintaining nuisances^and
are liable to arrest and prosecution. v -
