CITY FACING FEVER AFTER BLIZZARD Cleveland Alarmed by Condi tions; Floods May Follow Eastern Storm CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov. 12.—With clear, cold weather this city IB today recovering from the worst blizzard that ever held Cleveland in its grasp, to face a menace of flood and fever. Communication by rail and wire is gradually being restored. The city's streetcar service began an approach to normal today on some of the most used lines, although the service was intermittent and uncer tain in many parts of the city. The pangs of famine, which began to be felt yesterday because of the complete isolation of the city from outside sources of food supply, were partially alleviated today, as a few trains began arriving. SNOW MANY FEET DEEP The snow is piled many feet deep everywhere. Warmer weather is fore casted, and with it the possibility of rain. Should a downpour come now, Cleveland will find itself in the throes of the worst flood in its history. The water supply is in an un precedented dangerous condition. Cleveland draws its service from Lake Erie, but has no filtering system. The •torm has made the water so turbid and muddy and so befouled it with aewage, which the city empties into the lake, that it is undrinkable. Yet thousands of families have no means of obtaining other drinking water, as deliveries of spring drinking water have been at a standstill since the city became snowbound. The supply of milk, which had been put off. was gradually renewed today.

Scene showing how popularity of service in army is growing daily Recruits Anxious to Join Reg ulars in Belief They Will Be Sent Across Border Army recruiting stations through out the state are besieged with appli cants who desire to enlist in the reg ular army. Dozens appear at the re cruiting offices every day, but most of them want assurance that they will be sent to Mexico when war is declared. Colonel John IL Gardner, in charge of the local stations, is un able to promise this and several have postponed their enlistment. But most of the recruits are so sure of possible service that they are taking the chance of the seven year enlistment to get active service on the field of battle. ' Many of those desiring to enlist want to see service at the border," said Colonel Gardner today, "but we can not promise anything. When a man enlists he has to take his chances and will be sent where he is most needed. We are short of men for the infantry branch of the service. Our cavalry and field artillery is also a trifle shy. All the little fellows are placed In the mounted branch, while the larger ones are placed in the in fantry and coast artillery."

Prison Band Plays Farewell Serenade For Hoyle and Wife Retiring Warden Given Ovation by Employes and Convicts Alike— Vollmer Rumored for Position When retiring Warden John E. Hoyle and Mrs. Hoyle were about to depart from San Quentin last night to make their residence in San Fran cisco the prison band of 35 musicians serenaded them while guards and prisoners alike stood with heads un covered. The ceremony came as a surprise to Mr. and Mrs. Hoyle, wno Knew nothing of the intention of the prison ers to give them a testimonial. While no definite announcement has been made the rumor persists that Chief of Police Vollmer of the Berke ley department Is slated for the va cancy created by Hoyle's resignation. Whether Vollmer would assume charge of San Quentin or go to Fol som in the event that Warden John ston took charge of San Quentin also is in doubt. LUNCH TO BE SERVED AT WINEHAVEN FOR GUESTS OF THE CALL The Call's trip Sunday to the Nicholl-Macdonald business cen ter tract at Richmond will be made in one of the new boats of the Western Pacific Railway com pany. The boat will leave San Francisco in time to land at the Winehaven dock of the California Wine association about noon. Here lunch will be served by that or ganization and then The Call's delighted guests will be shown the Interesting sights in the won derful new city of Richmond. More details about this interest ing Journey will be announced each day this week in The Call. That The Call's big Richmond excursion will be a success is assured beyond the shadow of a doubt, for, already, since first an nouncement was made Monday, several hundred business men and their wives have signified their intention of going by signing the reservation book at The Call office. Nothing of a like nature in the past haß aroused the interest that is being manifested in this big free excursion to Richmond, and it proves that the marvelous de velopment of Richmond's new business district at Twenty-third and Macdonald avenues has at tracted the attention of investors from far and wide. In planning this trip it was The Call's intention to make it pos sible for a great number of peo ple to visit Richmond and view the big change that commerce and industry have wrought in the last few years, but from the opinion of the people who have visited the office in the last few days this knowledge of progress Is common, and the trip of many interested people has been deferred simply through lack of opportunity. So Sunday every one will have the chance of viewing the city where big fortunes are in the making. A glance over the few short years $600,000 RAISED FOR U.C. HOSPITAL Realization of President Ide Whee ler's ambition to make the new Uni versity of California hospital one of the foremost institutions of its kind in the world is incorporated in the announcement of the board of regents of the receipt of $600,000 for the com pletion of the structure at the Affili ated colleges. This culmination is made possible through the donation of $150,000 by William H. Crocker, $150,000 by John Keith and smaller gifts from other sources. The new hospital will set a standard not onl yln construction, but in equip ment. According to William Crocker, who gathered the funds, he is in receipt of a steady flow on applications from wealthy persons who wish to endow beds. The appointment of Prof. John L. Myers of Oxford as Sather professor for 1914 was announced. A field day for the benefit of fruit growers of southern California was announced for the Riverside experi ment station for November 15. The resignation of Francis H. Bird, assistant in economics, was accepted.

Until the spring of 1899 Richmond was nothing— two or three farmhouses were scattered over wheat and grazing lands. ENTIRE GROWTH IS NEW Numerous large corporations, recognizing the strategic advan tage of Richmond, started opera tions there and soon enterprises of nearly every description were on the ground, bringing in a short |time the surprising investment of $50,000,000 in factories alone. With 17 miles of water front Richmond has one of the finest deep water harbors on San Fran cisco bay, and now that a bond Issue for further improvements in an amount of, $17,600,000 has been carried Richmond will have her own municipal docks and .piers and the waters of her har bor will be brought right into the city in a deep and roomy canal. It Is to show this wonderful city to its readers, and the new business center particularly, that The Call has arranged this big free excursion Sunday. And who can tell? Perhaps in later years people can look back and trace their first glimpse of Richmond and the foundation of their Inde pendence to The Call excursion. So don't fail to be a guest of The Call Sunday. See one of the won ders of the San Francisco bay region. Register your name and address at the office of The Call now and tickets will be mailed you later in the week. Fortunes are to be made in Richmond. The new business center along Mac donald avenue affords the great est opportunity. So come, by all means, and see the heart of the fastest growing city In the United States. You will enjoy every feature of the trip without any cost.
