S.F. CALLEDTO'IRK Albert Lachmann, 76, Noted Wine Taster, Not Afraid of Technology . (A.sioelated Preng Leaned Wire) SAN FRANCISCO, Fob. 2.—Anticipating the time when Its products again may be sold legally as beverages, a once groat industry has called jack Into active service ono of Anior- ca's oldest professional w)no tasters, Albert Lachmnnn, 76, whoso senses are still so keen that by sampling certain vintages ho can name the districts In which Iho grapes were jrown. There Is no threat of "technological unemployment," no fear of being displaced by the machine or the test tube, In Albert I/achman's profession. Wine tasters, said ho, aro born and not made, and they gunrd their ultra- keen senses of taste and smell against stultification by ti dally routine that In Homo respects approaches asceticism. The commandments of the win* . taster require that he keep In good physical condition, smoke not at all, cat only plain foods, eschew strong drink and high seasoning. He may drink wine, but not too soon before he goes to work, lest his taste play tricks upon him. For IS years Lachman has been away from his profession but has kept his commandments sufficiently to permit his going Into training at the request of the vintners seeking his advice fn preparing California's' present supply of bonded choice wines, to taltng more than 20,000,000 gallons, for possible sale to the public in beverage form. His last active service was at the Panaca Pacific International Exposition here In 1915 when he judged wine exhibits along with the connoisseurs of France, Germany and Italy. IS ROOSEVELT 31ST (Associated Press Leased Wire) WASHINGTON, Fob. 2.—Historians may disagree, but the official inaugural modal will count Franklin D. Hoosevelt as the thirty-first President of the United States—not the thirty- second. Robert Woolley, chairman of tho Inaugural medal committee, has Instructed Paul Manship, New York sculptor, to use the designation "thirty-first President" in designing the medal which will be cast In gold by the Philadelphia mint. The conflict In numbers goes bock to Grovor Cleveland, who, after serving one term was defeated, but four years later was elected for a second te'rm. Federal law provides that a medal of each President shall be cast by the mint and one was made of Cleveland. Many histories and common usage list Cleveland as the twenty- second and twenty-fourth President of the United States and under this list- Ing Roosevelt would be the thirty- second President—the medal notwithstanding. -*Gas Company Calls' Order Confiscatory (United Press I.fated Wire) LOS ANGELES, Feb. 2.—The Southern California Gas Company today branded as "unlawful and conflsca- tory" an order of the State Railroad Commission demanding an annual reduction of $500,000 in rates effective December 1, 1932, in a brief filed In Federal Court.
