For two or three weeks it lias been
known to the admirers of Miss Burk

an air of expectant interest about the
business center where that young

Early yesterday morning the "news

The Call's pretty girl wage earner con
test grows keener each week.
"I told you so." was what Miss
Burkhardt's friends were saying all
day yesterday.
Mrs. Burkhardt. the mother of the
fortunate young woman, was the most
enthusiastic of all. She said:
"I am glad Helen won the watch.
She is just as good as she is pretty, and
I don't think any one deserves it more
than she."
Last week was one of great activity
in The Call's pretty girl wage earner
contest. Photographers worked over
time in an effort to keep up with the
demand for pictures. Groups of laugh

\\ JUDGE DEASY asks You,
the People of San Francisco,
for Promotion to the
Superior Bench, by
Your Vote Tomorrow
Naturally, it is impossible for me to meet and
speak to each and all of you voters in person.
But, instead, let me present this brief message:
During my incumbency as a Police Judge it al
ways has been my course to administer justice with
the law as my first guide, but with a humane and
decent regard for all who were brought before me.
Fearlessfy, and above all things on earth, impar
tially, I have at all times handed down my decisions
without reference to personality, friendship, poli
tics or any other personal consideration.
Today I ask for advancement at your hands.
I am seeking the higher dignity of the Superior
Bench on the same basis as you, in your careers,
seek advancement in your business or employment.
In my case, this means that I have fully proven my
fitness by the tests of time, training, faithfulness to
my trust and a sincere desire to serve the best in
terests of the people of San Francisco.
As a final reminder, I ask you again to stamp a
cross after the name of Daniel C. Deasy on your
ballot tomorrow.

hours of uncertainty when the returns

It is the opening wedge for Single Tax and was placed on
the ballot through the efforts of Single Taxers.
It provides for classification and exemption of property

The San Francisco
Chamber of Commerce
and the
Civic League of Improvement
Clubs of San Francisco
Make the Following Recom
mendations With Reference
to This Amendment:
"However attractive Home Rule
may be as a general proposition,
this particular amendment is
fraught with danger, and, if adopt
ed, is likely to produce confusing
and disastrous results. It is in
tended as the entering wedge for
single tax. Under it. in a single
county, there may exist four con
flicting systems of taxation, some
of which may overlap. Under it.
community would be arrayed
against community in their efforts,
through discrimination in taxation,
to attract or discourage various in
dustries. A district might seek to
raise its taxes by a tax on incomes
over a certain amount, and such a
tax might fall on one individual.
The old tax on mortgage? might be
revived, with serious results on the
rate of interest and the credit of
real property mortgages. Taxation
is a question which can better be
solved through a central control
than by a variety of revenue sys
tems adopted by the various com
munities. The experiment in sep
arating state from local taxation
has not yet been fully tried, and it
is not now the time for further ex
periments. There is no guarantee
that the integrity of the old tax
system will be preserved, so far it
outstanding bonds are concerned.
It is a matter which each locality
may decide for itself whether the
integrity of the tax system, on the
baMs of which its bonds were sold.
shall be preserved or not. An
opportunity for the worst form of
public dishonesty is thus presented
by this amendment. This amend
ment should be disapproved by. the
people of the state. The invest
ment of outside capital would be
seriously discouraged by this
