The progressive electors were named

held that neither method was lawful,
declaring that under the statute the
candidates should have been designated
by the state central committee, since
the progressive party did not enter the

prescribed in the code.

Horace H. Walling Convinces
Car Sealer That He Forgot
His Real Name
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
STOCKTON, Oct. 9.—Horace H. Wal-
ling, vice president of the Keystone
Type Founders company, today found
his missing son for whom he had ad
vertised all over the coast, in this city,
and took him home to San Mateo.
The young man, who was suffering
from lapse of memory and apparently
had lost knowledge of his identity, was
working as a car sealer for the South
ern Pacific company.
Young Walling was a wireless tele
graph operator and while in t*he navy
was stricken by sunstroke. He was
sent to a hospital at Norfolk, Va.
On recovery he was ordered home and
his folks were instructed not to allow
him to do any violent exercise. The
last heard of him was September 11.
Fled From Tennis Game
He was playing tennis when he be
came overheated. He laid aside his
tennis racket and disappeared. He
went to Sacramento under the name of
Eugene Harold Hickey, and then came
to Stockton. Chief Clerk Tandrow of
the Southern Pacific freight office took
a fancy to him and gave him employ
ment. The boy gave as reference his
nurse at Norfdlk.
The father had written the nurse,
one Fitzgerald, concerning the boy's
disappearance. When Fitzgerald re
ceived the photo and reference blanks
from the Fidelity Bond company, he
telegraphed the boy's father. Walling
ime.diately took the train for Stockton.
▼he boy did not recognize his father.
"Well, Horace, don't you know me?"
asked Walling, when he met his son
at the Southern Pacific depot.
