ROLPH REGIME IS
ALREADY AT WORK
Rehabilitation of San Francisco
Planned Before Adminis*

New Mayor Will Select Men to"
Fit the Jobs;. Politics to

Continued From Ton* 1
"that on that board he has a man for
"every task; in fine, that it is the best
balanced board ever elected in San
Francisco. Working with all the mem
bers of that board, he hopes "to get
every man on it in the,place where he
•can render the best service to San
Francisco, and, getting the man into his
niche, to get that man at work imme
diately.
.'. Rolph is not approaching his work as
a* politician. He Is going at it as a j
-business man, and mighty seriously. !
He is not interested in either "pull" or ;
.friendship as a Qualification for the '
public service. His first interest is in i
the accomplishment of things for San |
Francisco in a time that is all too short
for any preliminary procrastination.
WILL lose >"o TIME
Wherefore, in my judgment, the com
plete organization of the new board of
supervisors will be a closed matter in
less than two weeks. If the complete
organization of the board Is not set
tled, the makeup of the big committees
will be settled, and those committees
will be at work.
, For example, the public buildings
committee will be expected to work out
a definite plan of action for the erec
tion of a city hall and to be ready to
take the public 1 into its confidence at
least as to alternative propositions
when it goes into office.
The same state of preparedness is to
be expected from, the finance, street,
sewer, fire and police committees.
MADE NO PROMISES
None more fully than Rolph himself
appreciates how much of the success or
failure of his administration depends
upon the makeup of the appointive
commissions, especially the board of
works and the police and fire boards.
Rolph has made no promises.
It may be that he has not been visi
bly impressed by the imposing lists of
names presented to him with the ap
proval of the politicians presenting
them, but let none tell you that he is
not thinking and thinking hard about
those commissions. It may be that he
is giving a lot more attention to the
matter of looking for men than he is
to the men whose names have been
fired at him. In fact that may be
taken as fairly describing his attitude.
Already he has virtually . cleaned up
his private business and Is devoting
nearly ail his time to the questions in
volved in his public service. He knows
what he wants to do and he has ex
ceedingly clear ideas about how those
things can be done.
MEN TO FIT JOBS
He believes in finding a man who fits
the job rather than attempting to make
the job fit the man, and while he is
willing to "be shown" he is not' will
ing to make many experiments at gov
ernmental expense. ; .JHHHHfIj
Make a memorandum of this: When
Rolph announces the selection* of. a
man for the police commission; that
man will know something about the
police business- and the relations of
the police department with the pub
ifc, either from the police end or - the
public end. ESSJBSB
One Is as important as the other
and both have been generally over
looked by mayors who believed that
"good" men meant a good police com
mission and by the mayors who have
believed that the only men fit to di
rect the affairs of the police depart
ment were those whose natural-lean
ings were against both the public and
the police department.
"The best laid .schemes o* mice and
men gang aft agley," but Rolph has
his problems in hand more fully today
than any of .his predecessors have had
two months after their inauguration.
With the co-operation he expects, and
has a right to expect,? from the new
supervisors, Rolph will have things
actually moving in San Francisco - be
fore the end of January.

Judge; Shortall;yesterday? morning on
charges of disturbing::the peace, "no

Vasal Grossef,' one of the witnesses,
agreed to act as interpreter. When the

was dismissed by Shortall, the- latter
inquired of Grossef his ; profession.
"I am a dish washer," said Grossef.
"Why don't you become ' a lawyer?"

Hero of Kipling's "Three
Sealers" Tells of Episode
Captain C. Knox, one of Kipling's "Three Sealers" who arrived here yes
"7 terday on the Tenyo Maru. \
Capt. Knox Scared Off Ship With Stovepipe
Gun; Looted Robbers' Island of Seals
When Rudyard Kipling wrote his
"Rhyme of the Three Sealers" he
availed himself liberally of poetic
license, This may have improved the
poem, "but it so [hurt',-the feelings of
Captain G. Knox, one. of the heroes of
the episode upon which the poem is
based, that G. Knox and R. Kipling will
never.be very warm friends.
Knox arrived here yesterday on the
Japanese liner Tenyo Maru. * He is on
his way to England, and, if the oppor
tunity offers, .-may express himself
freely to the - man who wrote the
story of: '".••• t „..»*,,„,.,..7,
. ' "When the Baltic ran from the north
ern light and the Stralsund fought the
two." ..-.-.. ■ _ 7
Knox, who is in the service of the
Chinese customs, is harbor master'at
Tongku. He has lived i;in the orient
for a quarter of a Century. - It was*
while engaged lii sealing out of Japan
that he figured in the story of" Kip
ling's poem, of which his criticism is
interesting. 7
GOT HIS FACTS MIXED
"Yes." he said yesterday, "I was
probably the principal figure in the
incident that Kipling pretends to "■ de
scribe in his "Three Sealers." He ain't
much of a poet. He got the names ■ all
wrong and ,he put In a lot of; things
that never happened.;? I ; don't know
where he got his dope, but he certainly

Commissioner Prendergast ■ started an
animated discussion at the meeting of
the playground commission yesterday
:by asking If * there ; were any *' need : for
Assistant Play Director Chantz, on the
Hamilton grounds. He said that there
was -no apparatus on the grounds, ex
cept a slide that was used by 99 per
cent of the; boys 2 and girls who visited
the grounds, and. that Miss Burke was
employed "all; the time handing out balls,
bats and gloves, which he thought
could be done by a boy vat $5 a week.
77 Supervisor? of Plays \ Schlitter [said
that when the triangle grounds was dis
continued he transferred Chantz to the
Hamilton grounds, intending jtb|;f place
him "1 in [[charge;* of the f Jackson park
grounds when finished. - <

dergast, -'that this commission Is to

employes "at; the Hamilton"^grounds, a
care 'l taker, a gardener and a woman,
each drawing $75 a month. 7 A* * :
*7j Ittwas:suggested^ that < in ; addition .to

"Ask '[•; , him,'* '*'. said Commissioner
Vaughan,; "not ; order [ him 7to do it. He

77 Preridergast7 then asked ; what 7 good
Miss % Burroughs was at the Southslde
grounds, i as? he [ had been [there a . num
ber of times*/: but never had seen her In
evidence. He thought that paying ,her
$75 a month {or reading a few, stories to
