It's fun transferring from streetcars to busses at Ashby and San Pablo Avenue these busy days before Christ mas. Fun for the customers and fun for Nick Alevizos, 39, inspector for the East Bay Transit Co. For In spector "Nick," as everyone calls him, has donned his Santa's uniform again and he's dispensing token-holders to the grown-ups and bal loons to the children who come his way. Alevizos, who resides at 808 5Srd Street, Oakland, has been working for the transit company four years and for three of fhose he's been combining duties of .inspector with the joys of Kris Kringle at holiday time. There's a gaily decorated Christmas tree in the Ashby Avenue terminal and a goodly supply of candy and balloons hidden in its branches. No children of his own, Alevizos gathers to himself an "adopted" family at Christmas. Off duty he drives his decorated automobile to advertise the East-West football game, funds from which go to aid of crippled children under direction of the Mystic Shrine. Drastic Political Changes in Europe Forecast by U.C. Savant Drastic changes in the internal economy ana political institutions of the Nations of Europe upon the close of the present war is forecast by Dr. Robert J. Kerner, professor of history at the University of California. In an address before the Oakland Rotary Club, Dr. Kerner predicted the entire continent would be either Nazi or Bolshevik, on the one hand, or a federation of free states stripped of customs barriers and ag- OPEN TONIGHT AND FRIDAY UNTIL 9:30 P.

If the war should result in a Nazi or Bolshevik victory, the other European states, including France and England, will be reduced tohe present status of Czechoslovakia and Poland, he said. While, if England and France with their allies win the war, they will have to follow the pattern of setting up a European federal relationship in which a defeated Germany, if not a transformed Russia, will be included, he added. Dr. Kerner pointed out that the stumbling block in the latter case will be the lack of sufficient experience with political democracy on the part of Germany and Russia. And, as in the past two decades, failure again of democracy in these countries would lead to new wars and internal purges. Important as Russia is in any consideration of the future of Europe and Asia, Germany is the dominant factor, whether defeated or victorious, Dr. Kerner stated. For Germany or any other industrialized nation, the only adequate leben-sraum or living space is the entire world that is the opportunity to buy and sell throughout the world, he said, stressing that autarchy or war economy can never accomplish this. - Annulment Asked After Six Years She was married six years before she learned her husband had a wife living, Mrs. Ann Marshall testified today to obtain an annulment from Vancll I. Marshall. They separated on October 9, 1630, when she discovered that Marshall was not divorced from Mrs. Marguerite Marshall, she told Superior Judge John J. Allen. . Mrs. Marshall said that her husband spoke of a former marriage but that she assumed that there had been a divorce. Records presented to the court revealed that Marshall obtained a divorce from Mrs. Marguerite Mar shall on March 3, 1938, in Judge T. W. Harris' court on grounds of desertion. He filed suit November 11, 1938, citing that they were married in Yuma on February 20, 1930, and separated March 18, 1933. Judge Allen restored to Mrs. Ann Marshall her maiden name of Peter- man. She became Marshall's bride at Los Gatos on September 23, 1933. Each Kahn't, Fir$t Floor Wo o II e Slippers Women's kid, woolie collar. Leather sole, heel.
