Tho action of riirm mornhorH of tho oxecutivo committoo of tho Lincoln- Rnoaovelt League in prummiiiiK to dictate to the intelligent voters of the (!8th AnHcrnbly District whom they should vote for as delegates to the forthcoming State convention, has caused a wave of indignation to sweep from one end of the district to the other, nnd the few Republicans, who during tho early Htagns of tho campaign had affiliated with tho Lincoln-Roosevelt, movement are disgusted and ashamed of an organi/a- tion that, would resort to such reprehensible boss niotlioda. Their acti'm in appointing tho delegates instead of allowing Mm votei'H to select in caucuses and convention shows conclusively that the organi/ation, composed largely of disappointed political aspirants, in their intense dosiro to secure olllco, ooiild not trust tho intelligence of the independent American voters in their choloo.

MAY DAY MUSICAL FESTIVAL A GREAT SUCCESS A Crowded House Greets the Orchestra, Band and Chorus of Covina Schools. Leader Receives Deserving Praise. The May Day Musical Festival, yivcn by the orchestra, band and chorus of the Covina Union Miirh School, under the leadership ofj their instructor, Mr. F'hzGerald, in the Womans Club House, last ' evening-, attracted a large and expectant audience. When the cu r - tain dropped on the last number even the most critical were loud in their praise of the splendid musical program throughout and to Mr. ! Fitx.Gerald was freely and deservedly given the credit. To those i unacfjtiaintf d with him it would seem almost incredible that anv instructor could turn out in one school ye:ir such a number of well trainer! performers, but the iri'.nioal entrv-H^ism which is characteristic of the man seems, under his tutorsnip, to enter into everv pupil Once before this year the orchestra has been heard in public, but the performance last evening showed a most marked improvement. It was the initial performance of the band, which has been organized less than twelve weeks. It is needless to say that the patrons of the Covina Schools feel that their children are highly favored in having such an instructor, as Mr. FitxGerald. The program as published below in full will give those of our readers who were unable to attend an idea of the character of the performance: PART FIRST CANNING SEASON i. 2. 34- 56.
