KLX 910kc THE TRIBUNE STATION If jrou haven't already checked With some o your friends over Jn Contra Costa County, you may b interested In a little more dope on that question the Knave posed as fc what put the a quitch on a. projected gambling enterprise in. Contra Costa County, . " The story as we. set it from some .1 of our friendi, among the gambling waternity is tms: Several months back one of their J twmber--one' of : the , top numbers, t,T the wayhad some loose change - sad an idea that what that eounty , eded was f a bigger, and better gamblms palace. The plans were duly drawn. Very trntm. wot a second Flamingo Club. zpw wnaersiana dux nonetneiest a place where you wouldn't be ashamed to take your granny. CT ree versa. The contract was about to be let for something around 1800.000. .which, even at these prices, should be enough to furnish a cozy little neat for Lady : Luck,: and the deal . and the balance on completion. ; Oops! All of sudden the boys hear about this bill Governor War-ten wants to permit him to appoint commissions to study various phases -of the crime problem in California. It had been" in the hopper quite a while without much attention, but when it started to move through the H legislative mill 1 herculean under-cover efforts were made to kill it off., without -t avaiL ,:, The measure moved through to final passage. : Whereupon---iit advance of actual . creation of the commission, or com missions and ' the selection of per sonrielsignalf ; iwere oft on the . Contra Costa project The gentleman in question put his money back in. his pocket and, packed the plans in mothballs until some possible miure aaie. t,;. At least that's the gossip as the Knave hears it.; . O O' o o Meanwhile, along Twelfth Street the boys are wondering with tongue in cheek"! no doubt why : there -has been an upsurge in book making activity in Oakland the past lew weeks. I . . O O 0 Johnny Morris gets all excited when he orates about bridges over Lake Merritt He waves his arms strikes dramatic' poses, and delivers ringing quotation! from the classics V. but not always correctly! There was the might ha told the city council one proposition was' in line with the Biblical phrase; 'The voice Is Jacob's voice but the hands are the hands of Isaac." Again he warned against certain action by declaring: "You're letting tne eiepnam get nis nose unaer tne tent Pretty soorii he'll be all the way in. rf Somebody ' suggested he should go back to Sunday School The phrase in Genesis, quotes Isaac as referring to Jacob's voice and Esau's hands. i . And he mightq check a bit xt zoology too. It was the camel who stuck his nose under the tent That thing - hanging out in front of an elephant is called a trunk, o o ;o o In case you weren'fcthere to judge for yourself just how "stacked" the audience was at 'that recent "Town Meeting" in Sari Francisco, the rebroadcast on the radio certainly furnished the tip-oft They are still telling how the ladlestand gentlemen from the far left started lining up for. admission two hours before the doors were due td open, and by the time the program started they were on" the inside and several hundred other .ticket holders were out in the cold. i ; As a result, Lieut Gov. Goodwin Knight was subjected to discourtesy virtually every . time he took the microphone . and he was prac tically drowned out by; boos" when he had . the courage ; to declare that the Republican party opposes . communism. ;..' ,. ; " -. I j At another point, a question from the floors which might have been embarassing to 4James ' Roosevelt state Democratic chairman! was drowned out by audience noise" and ' jwent unanswered.tr j. .,- I And did you hear-George Outland former Democratic congressman from Santa Barbara, make his big pitch on that same program about the Democrats being against cross-filing?:. .'v't'fV-::4 The Knave t Isn't quite V certain whether the voters of both parties - had a chance to retire Outland in favor of a Republican at the June 1948 primary as they eventually did at the general election that year but the record ; will show that Mr. Outland himself cross-filed in both the -1942 and 1944 primary elections. O ! f D : If at any time in the past six months you had desired to direct a communication to . the postmaster of San Leandro,; you would have had to address it to Crescent City. You still would,! as a matter of fact because, although he ' resigned last month. Michael Neish, who is now publisher of the Del Norte Triplicate, continues as postmaster until his successor is chosen. .' -1 -.? I -. ' All of which is to lead up to the tact that the matter of chosing a successor is causing Democrats here a bouts : some headaches. As the Knave hears it some pretty ' harsh names were , called recently when the Dembcratic-' County - Central Committee met to consider the problem. . 1 . - The ; story i goes that : 10 votes which were considered "in the bag" for Mrs. Matilda - Neish weren't when the final tally was in. Mrs Neish had only six votes to 10. for 'Charles Royse, ., a government accountant "and one ' for George Peyry, a deputy collector of internal : revenue.1 -y,:,:,'--lV'-.-v,.v '-;.iW' Right about then, we understand, the name calling started. " i ' ' The upshot was that the committee decided jtp "pas . the buck to Rep. George P. Miller. The Knave under- stands that Rep. Miller will be back j home before the end of the month v and will select the new head mail- man then. r ' -:. " ' . Until such time as Miller and the r Democratic high c 6mm and reaches a decision.

Army PITTSBURG, Calif.. Aug 22. A general and his colonels are up to their eyebrows and their eyebrows are raised higher than the cost of living today in a full dress investigation into an alleged undress incident that concerns primarily a lieutenant and . a ... sergeant from Camp Stoneman, W ; '-1 The scowling, probe, so hush-hush it is echoing in every port of the big San Francisco Port of Embarkation, centers around just what if anything, took ; place in a tavern known as Frumenti's in Bella Vista, two miles west of here. Maj. Gen. Neil H. McKay, commander of the port, the Board of Equalization and the Contra Costa County sheriffs office want to know and they are not to be put off with any "boys will ; be boys" excuses either. :.. - . . . .-.-k l The story they are running down Is that Frumentfs,' realizing that Monday is a dull night when wives and girl friends like to stay home and there is riothing much to entertain the boys, invited the men folks of Camp Stoneman to come on over alone and there would be 'a little show at the tavern to make up for the lack of feminine companionship. So they did and the shows were applauded with vigor. The five en tertainers combined a little of the allure of Hildegarde and the style of Sally Rand and gradually the lights dimmed to dark and the men were left alone. - Only on this Monday night In question. the two men in question had a better idea. They didn't want the girls to leave and they wanted to get into the act So they did! or did they? And how! or and how? ' Now when the lights came up they - shone on some pretty fancy brass, the 'kind worn by three colonels no less. v The colonels, who up to that point probably had been enjoying a night out themselves, decided the show must NOT go on. ; They say one of the colonels became so enraged he ordered the sergeant to the stockade and the lieutenant confined to quarters under guard. Joseph Soares, chief liquor en forcement officer for the Board of Equalization office here, said that he is "investigating Frumenti's to see if they are in the right business or the wrong business." If Soares" investigation shows that Frumenti's has been maintaining disorderly premises" ja charge will be filed. ' As for Mondays they are blue again.

She commented that "those who knqw the . children best are in the best, position to manage the discipline and training of them." The summer program, she observed. "could be more-easily administered oy tne recreation department tnan the programs previously mentioned However, the intimate knowledge and understanding of the individual pupils is quite as necessary as In the other programs." Mrs. Drennon declared the P.-T.A. is not prepared "either to argue or endorse; any. specific administrative arrangements.-: f ;vV She added however, that fwe will be very much concerned with the progress of the program, to see that all of the values which have been achieved are maintained Wepoint out the dangers and the necessities of close relationship without taking any position as to what is 'correct administratively."
