[Special Dispatch to The Call]
COLTON, on board special P. P. I. E.
excursion train, Nov. 9. —The reception
tendered the delegation of San Fran
cisco business men who are en.route
to the state fair at Phoenix, Ariz., by
the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce
proved conclusively that the citizens of
that city are backing the Panama-Pa
cific International exposition. The Los
Angeles representatives showered
fruits and flowers on the excursionists
and then took them for an automobile
ride through the residential section^ of
their city.
When the special train reached the
outskirts of Los Angeles, a committee
composed of James Slauson, president
of the Chamber of Commerce; Secretary
Frank Wiggins and G. G. Johnson,
boarded the train and welcomed the
delegation. Baskets of fruit were given
each member of the party. Automo
biles were- furnished at the main sta
tion and the delegation paraded
through the streets, headed by the offi
cial herald, whose bugle calls attracted
attention to the exposition boosters.
HORNS HERALD PARTY
* A. C. Rulofson, president of the Home i
Industry league, laid in a supply of
horns and the excursionists made more
noise than the herald. C. A. Cook,
manager of the Fairmont hotel, joined
the party at Los Angeles and brought
a supply of fans that were appreciated
on th* trip through the valley. Through
the courtesy of H. R. Judah, assistant
general passenger; agent of 'the South
ern Pacific railroad, the departure of
the train -was delayed an hour, giving
the boosters a chance to get better ac
quainted with the Augelenos.
S. Z. Osborne, W. H. Booth, Jud Sae
ger, J. v. Vickers, Dr. Walter Lindley,
Arthur Kinney, Carl McStay, William
Harrison. E. C. Cribb, George H. Pike
and M. M- Davidson of Los Angeles,
helped to entertain the San Francis
cans while in the southern city. 7 v
PIANO PLAYER TAKEN ABOARD
As no one on board the special could
play the piano well enough for. the crit
ical audience, W. S. Gannon had Eller's
Music company place a player piano
on the train. Five carpenters and as
many more porters were pressed into
service. The former took out a plate
glass window just to make things plea
sant for the delegation. 77;?
Almost every member of the party
gave away souvenirs. Before half the
Journey was over the delegation had
buttons, fans, badges, flags, horns, more
badges-, booklets and cards and every
thing given away was a boost for the
1915 exposition.
Tonight Miles brothers gave a mov
ing picture show in one of the cars and
plans were arranged to startle the na
tives of Arizona with a choice selection i
of yells, songs and noises.

See What You Can Do With Today's Book
lovers' Contest Picture
' There' is one good treason 1 why you should turn-tothe.Booklovers Con
test picture that appears in today's Call. 7*
The reason is that you may be able to solve that picture.
If you can solve it, then you can solve others. Get the two back pictures
from The Call or from your friends and neighbors, and. start in f the contest.;
You have just as much chance of winning the $3,000 house and lot or the
$500 in good, hard cash, as anyone. The ; only „way to get anything is to
try for it. Match your mind against the world's, and the chances are that the
world will grant that you are a pretty bright fellow. 7^7^ •*->», t*«t
Because an uneducated laborer won a first prize in a Booklovers Contest
is no reason why the educated can not win.7 Because a college professor won
one of the chief grand prizes in another contest is* no reason why a man who
nver saw a college should not win. 7 7 ' ' • '- - .;
Shrewdness and'ingenuity, count in this rcontest.. ... , 77

books,. so that :: he might* search his memory for titles ; That is, a grievous
error. The Call will put on sale next Wednesday a Booklovers - Contest cata

If you look at a picture and can not: think of a book title that? fit it,
then pick up your catalogue. The picture may be that of a ship on fire at sea.
Weil, you may never have heard of the correct title,?BUT—look:inthe«cata- ;
logue and see if there is a book listed such as "The Fire at Sea, for^ The
Burning of the Ship." or something like that. Use your ingenuity, and you
will be sitting on the front porch of that house at Burlingame or traveling
through Europe on that $500 somebody is going to get.
That somebody might as well be you. 7". ? .7 .
Turn to today's picture and see if - you know what title it represents.

i All members of one family, living at one address, may participate In the
contest, .but only one prize will be awarded .to: that family.7; That is, if two
members of the same family ati the same address qualify among the * list of
prize winners, the one getting .the highest; prise 'will be recognized, but the
other will of necessity, have, to-forego his prize. '• Remember, however/ that this
applies only to.members of the SAME family, living at ONE address. It does
not apply, to members of . the same .family; living at different addresses. A con
testant who wants to know whether or not Jhe -can use his office address ;as ? his
address, because another member of his family at home is also working on the
contest, Is told that nothing could be gainedi by so doing. ? The two /can -work
quite independently of each : other, but if both qualified for prizes, only the one
getting the highest prize would be recognised. Both live at the same address.
on their pleasure craft, and It is ex
pected, in view of the benefits of
travel to be , gained by the Atlantic
lines from the foreign public visiting
the fair, that they will lend their aid
