Supervisors Ignore Appeal After
Hearing Scathing Com
mittee Report
Special Session Will Be Held
Today to Consider Char
ter Amendments
The board of health received the cold
satisfaction yesterday of hearing its
appeal for more funds vigorously de
nounced in a report filed by the finance
committee of the board of supervisors
and of having its request for I further
hearing on the matter completely ig
nored by the board. The latter body
received the report Of tlie finance com
mittee, or. ad »od proceeded to
other business without further refer
ence to the natter, although President
Arthur Raremit and other members of
the health board were present.
Finding its maintenance fund run
ning simrt, the board of health ap
pealed some time nirn to the finance
committee of the board of superivsors
for an additional appropriation to meet
the shortage. The committee informed
the health hoard that there was no
money available and suggested that it
find its own way out of its troubles
by dispensing , with a few employes.
Th< health board appealed from the
derision of the finance committee and
went direct to thi- hoard of supervisors
With its plea.
LnPt wepk the board of supervisors'
listened to an argument on both sides
of the question and sent the matter
back to the finance committee again
for a further report. The report, sub
mitted yesterday, stated that a sum
once fixed by the budget could not be
expanded later and quoted a number
of opinions by different city attorneys
in support of Its contention that the
board of health was asking for some
thing to which it had no right. The
specific appropriation, it declared, was
designed to limit the expenditures of
any one department, and to raise this
original appropriation would not only
be unwise but unlawful.
Among the concluding paragraphs of
the report were the following:
'•Your finance committee does not
deem it within its province, in the
light of the opinions Quoted, to in
vestigate the personnel of the health
department and determine if possible
which employes are unnecessary and
whose services could be dispensed with.
Such an investigation is purely an ad
ministrative matter and belongs exclu
sively to the administrative function
of the government. It is a matter that
rests so'ely with the mayor, who is
the executive head of the city govern
ment and has large power of coniro)
over the several departments.
"There is only one rule which the
board of health can follow, and that
is: Regulate its expenditures, over
which U has exclusive control, within
the budget allowance and tax rate fixed
by the board of supervisors.
"Am before stated, the board of health
ias deliberately violated the provisions
of the charter in exceeding its allow
ance, and the attention of the mayor is
respectfully directed to that violation." J
The report was received without com
ment, and no further reference was
made to the matter during the meeting
of the board.
No definite report was made to the
board of supervisors on the billboard
ordinance, that has been under consid
eration by the public welfare commit
tee. The committee merely reported
that it wished to obtain legal advice as
to the power of the board to restrict the
height of billboards and to tax them.
It presented and obtained the pa.ssage
of a resolution putting these various
questions formally to the city attorney.
\ resolution was passed on motion
of Supervisor Giannini instructing all
public service corporations using the
city streets to file within two weeks

Artist's Dream Is Fulfilled
Prize Winner Perfect Type
WHEN Miss Helen Btirkhardt, winner of last Sunday's gold watch,
came yesterday to The Call office in quest of her own she did not
know that at the same time she was fulfilling an artist's drcain.
For months Giuseppi Cadcnu sso, the noted artist, has been dreaming
of a perfect Anglo-Saxon type. He has haunted every class of society
in the hope of finding such a face. He happened in The Call office
yesterday just as Miss Durkhardt entered the vestibule on her way to
the editorial room*;.
"The moment I =a\v her." said Cadenasso, in speaking of his find, "I
recognized her as a perfect type«.of Anglo-Saxon beauty. She has such
a face as Gainsborough made famous with his brush. Her features are
wonderful.' .
Miss Hurkhardt consented to allow the artist to paint her portrait,
but, being a very young girl, it was apparent that her gold watch gave
her greater pleasure than the fact that she had been selected by a noted
painter from among thousands as a perfect type of feminine beauty.
"I've been dreaming of that watch ever since I left off short skirts,' ,
exclaimed the young lady when it was laid in her hand. "It's just what
I wanted."
The pretty girl editor of The Call would like to know where all of
the brunettes are hiding themselves. Artists hive declared that the
particular type of beauty being developed here in California must neces
sarily be of the brunette coloring, owing to the semitropical environment
and peculiar racial conditions that exist here. So far, the girls who
Ijave carried off the gold watches awarded by The Call in its pretty
girl wage earner contest, with the exception of one, have been blondes.
The pretty girl editor would like to see a brunette get the next watch.
Do you know where that pretty brunette is? If so, send in her
Just a very few more weeks, then will come the awarding of that

Resorts at Warm Springs and
Alvarado Lose Licenses
to Sell Liquor
OAKLAND, Nov. 4.—Women leaders
in club and civic center activities
throughout Alameda county won a vic
tory before the board of supervisors
today in their campaign against road
houses. Tom Klink, keeper of a road
houso at Warm Springe, was denied a
renewal of his liquor license and the
board served notice that the bar at
the resort muet close. Klink apparently
had advance information of the fate of
hie application, and made no appear
ance. The license under which X.
Herme had operated a bar at the iHotel
Chanticler at Alvarado was revoked
and the hearing of a protest against
John Bauman's saloon at Irvington wan
begun. The Baunian hearing will be
concluded next Monday.
There was a technical objection
against Klink, that he did not have
the requisite number of signatures of
adjoining property owners to his peti
tion, but this was not considered.
"Klink has conducted the kind of
place that this board ought to drive
out of the county," said Supervisor
Foss, "and whether he has the required
number of signatures or not, I am op
posed to renewing hi* license."
Supervisor D. J. Murphy, in whose
district the three saloons are located,
then moved to deny the Klink petition.
"Such saloons as he has conducted
should be eliminated and I will vote
against them every time," Murphy said.
Protests against the place were filed
by Mrs. James B. Hume, president of
the Civic central committee of Alameda
county, and signed by every president
of centers in the county. This protest
bore the names of Mrs. James B. Hume;
Miss Blanche Morse, secretary; Mrs.
Cora E. Jones, president of the Oakland
center; Mrs. R. C. Young, secretary
Oakland center; Mrs. L. T. Liangworthy,
president Seminary Park center; Mrs.
Elizabeth Fern, president Fruitvale
center; Miss Myra V. Simmons, presi
dent Alameda County Colored Ameri
can renter; Mrs. E. F. Strowbrldge,
president San center; Mrs. John
Coburn, president Emeryville center;
Dr. Minora Kibbe, president Laurel
club; Mrs. L<eda M. Hume, president
Berkeley center, and Mrs. T. H. Speddy,
president Alameda center.
Dr. Susan J. Fenton, third vice presi
dent of the Public Service club of Ala
meda county, sent a protest. "Our in
vestigators have found it to be a dis
reputable place and demoralizing in
its influence upon young people," Doc
tor Fenton wrote.
Mrs. Oulielma R. Crocker, chairman
of the civic committee of the Country
club of Washington tow # nship, opposed
the granting of the license on the
ground of lack of signaturee.
Miss Bessie Wood, secretary of the
Child's Welfare league, also objected
to the place.
District Attorney W.. H. Donahue in
formed the board that the hearing of
a motion to revoke the license of X.
Herme at Alvarado was up for con
sideration and Donahue said that he
had more evidence, in addition to that
which he submitted last week, against
Hermes conduct of the place. Attor
ney George McDonmigh appeared for
Herme, saying that his client was ill,
and asked 30 days' time for him to dis
pose of his interest in the place. He
admitted that all the charges made by
Donahue against Herme were true.
"With these admissions, I see but one
line of action," said Supervisor Mur
phy, "I move to revoke the license.'
This motion also was passed unani
Mrs. Emily (1. Mowry. president of
the Country club of Washington town
ship, said that she understood that
ther* was to be a hearing on the li
cense of John Bauman of Irvington.
The board heard her protest today,
though the hearing is for Monday of
next week.
"Bauman sold liquor to Fred Mowry,
an insane man, who came home from
the state hospital at Agnews, one morn
ing, and in the afternoon he got drunk
at Bauman's." she said, "and a few
hours later Mowry committed suicide.
The coroner's inquest was a travesty
on Justice. Witnesses were placed
undfr oath, but they told everything
except what was the real facts of the
case. Bauman was a witness, himself,
and he was mightily glad when they
let him go. People there told me,
'You m.ust not say anything about this,
as it will hurt politics.' I don't care
whether it hurts politics or not. Mr.
Bauman's influence in the town is bad.
He overindulges in his own liquor.''

•tQood Front" and Other Quali
fications in "When Knight
hood Was in Flower"
"When Knighthood Was in Flower"
was not made, either In book form or
dramatic shape, to win the admiration
of the dissector of plays, but rather to
defy him.
I was reminded at the Alcazar last
night of what the "dip" in "A Romance
of the Underworld" told me about act
ing. "All you need," be enlightened,
"to be a good actor, is nerve, a good
front and the gift of 'gab. "
It's the same with plays as with
players. All a play needs is nerve
(meaning assurance), a good front
(meaning scenic sets of beauty) and
the gift of 'gab" (meaning, unques
tionably, rapid and pertinent dialogue).
"When Knighthood Was in Flower"
possesses all these requisites. It Is a
play of splendid assurance, to be sure.
It puts Mary Tudor, sister of the stout
King Henry VIII, in hose, doublet and
boots and shows her eloping: to "New
Spain" with gallant Charles Brandon;
and, as though that were not sufficient
demonstration of presumption in a
playwright, it shows the "madcap
princees" in several fits of frenzy,
hysteria and lovely but loosed rage.
It permits this princess of the blood
to propose to the captain of the king's
guards when that unnoble but not ig
noble fighting person, feeling the dis
advantage of his blood that is red and
not blue, restrains the ardent protesta
tions that hover on his lips (to steal
some of Mr. Major's metaphor).
It is, indeed, a fine, dashing story of
love, adventure, duels, death and good
clothes. It is historic, too —because,
was there not a Mary Tudor, and was
there not a corpulent Henry, and a
king of France that was willing to
marry his Mary? Was there not a
duke of Buckingham and a Wolsey?
Even Tame, who bothered Englishmen
of letters a great deal, admitted that
there was. Well, they are all in the
play, and they behave in a very royal
fashion; but the style of Brandon is
more royal than all of them put to
gether—and Brandon was only a cap
tain in the king's guard. That helps
to make the play fitter for America.
The plot is carefree, eloquent with fine
speeches, graced with distinguished
declarations of passion, and is sealed
with many klstes from royal lips.
"When Knighthood Was In Flower"
would demand audible expressions of
approval by any audience at the Colum
bia or the Cort. It puts up an "elegant
Indeed, the first art set is one of the
prettiest and best executed that I have
seen for a long time, and It is fresh
from the hands of Edward S. Williams,
who frequently deserves but seldom
gets public recognition for the work of
his rapid brush. However, the Alcazar
audience took the scenery for granted,
ac an accustomed thing.
The "gift of 'gab , " Is left to the
players who fulfill requirements as s?t
down in Charles Major's story, which i≤ ,
Miss Maude Fealy makes an ador
able madcap. Phc flies into the finest
passions, from which she emerges into
the sunshine of coaxing tenderness
with the rapidity of transition of a
shadow acro.ss a sunlit hill. Her frenzy
In the feecond act Is physical and
psychological. The bolts of cloth that
the tailor* have brought, the laces that
are to go into the trousseau, the
pledges from the king of France—her
loathed suitor —fly In all directions,
an-1 if she doesn't scratch somebody's
eyes it is because everybody save Lady
Jano Bollngbroke (poor Lady Jane)
flies from the room before Mary's gusty
rape. In her scenes with Brandon the
noble lady is tenderness personified
and many" pretty love scenes are the
occasion of much secret enjoyment in
the audience.
James Durkln's Charles Brandon Is
clearly a fighting man. Fealty, not
fancy' dances, is his strong suit, and
he makes a gallant figure for Mary
Tudor to lean upon.
Poor Thomas Chatterton has to con
tent himself with the villainous role
of the duke of Buckingham, a part
that does not reet so easily in Chat
terton's care as his gallant costume
becomes his person.
A. Burt "Wesner is a noisy, bluster
