Heroism and fortitude everywhere was manifest. Those who only had been bruised and scratched, perhaps they had slight sprains many of them were aged womenrefused attendance until other less fortunate had been ."-ed Cheerfulness vied with the heroic effort of attendants and the -combination, supremely effective, produced efficient results. After three hour of herculean effort 100 of those hurt to a minor degree had been (riven emergency treatment and taken home by rela tives or In the Pacific Electrlo cars and the taxlcabs. - During the bedlam at the hospital, W. F. Vale, . manager, directed the ministrations with every facility at . hand. Twenty-eight eases of compound fractures were sent to the X-ray tables and then to the surgical wards for the broken and mashed bones to be set in casta. A Jate check furnished by Mr. Vale disclosed that Ms hospital had tmated hi all 185 persona Of tbla number 19 were to remain lu thn hospital until further disposition bn-t-au of their violent hurts.

FETE ATTRACTS GREAT THRONG (Continued from First rage) said by officials of the Tournament of Roses Association to have been one of the most successful in the history of Pasadena's annual carnival. The parade followed a course approximately five miles In length and along the entire line of march was greeted with the applause of the enthusiastic multitude. Long Beach won the grand sweepstakes prize of the tournament with a float symbolic of the spirit of the seaside ctty. The entry represented a large gondola on which was mounted a huge sea shell created of a multitude of vari-colored sweet peas and other blossoms. About the base of the float was a bank of 4500 red roses. Pretty Kevac Hush, 6 years of age, stood within the open portals of the shell, driving a swan of whit crnAfinnfi over a alui tf white carnations. FLOAT FEATURES CKOW.V Pasadena's own float conaisted of a great crown, representing the "Crown City," on a float with pergola effects at each end. Children and young girls added life to the utateliness of the design. Purple was the predominant color with green added here and there. The lines of the crown were of purple and green. The pergola posts were of gold, "the whole giving the effect of a gorgeous crown resting in the center of a garden of floral end human loveliness. An Egyptian barge, canopied with vines and flowers, and filled with womanly beauty, was South Pasadena's float. Miss Martha Meserole was Queen of the Hose Maidens, consisting cf seven classically clad girls. Tellow rosos, carnations and green delicate vines provided the principal color scheme. FOOTBALB MOTIF The Vista Del Arroyo Hotel of Fa i den a had a float especially appropriate. It showed a flower-strewn footbll field, with a great yellow and white football revolving in the center, between the two goal posts. At either end were Cerle irave. representing Washington, and Marjorie Murphy, representing Alabama, whose teams contested in the Rose Bowl etsdium In the afternoon. The girls were dressed in whits collegian attire. Alhambra entered a beautiful display of roses built around a great, classical rose basket, with four largs rose bowls at each corner of . the float. Eleven girls and children added more beauty to tb&L of the flowers. FAIRYLAND FLOAT "Fairyland" wn entered by San Dimas. A great green frog, start-hrigly realistic, constituted the center piece. It was formed mostly of magnolia leaves. It rested in a watered garden spot, with a child, Lovey Giawgow, holding delicately colored r;ns.

To the east and to the weal of the fatal spot, though, the cheer-, of other hundreds of thousands eohoed and re-echoed as the watchers, unaware of the full severity of the event, voiced thoir approval of the exhibition.

EX -SHAH'S DEATH TALE CONCOCTED News Agency Faked Story to Trap Papers Using Its Reports Without Paying 1ST CABLS-EXCUrSm PISPATCHJ PRAGUE, Jan. 1. News broadcast from Prague Wednesday morning and reproduced In several papers abroad to the effect that the ex-Shah of Persia has committed suicide In Marienbad was a deliberate violation of the truth. whirh ...nnli.s a number of Ciecho- Slcvaklan and other l-.iiropean nu niamng an miormai v"n newspapers with a wireless serv-jef inspection to the new edifice. Ice had suspected for some time aj m4ny Elks are doing; theia daySi that certain newspapers whicn bad. n.rv.x- it ,-. not subscribed to its service, werei publishing its news. In order to discover the culprits, th news agency concocted th message in question, havir-sr first warned its regular subscribers. The resuit is Mid to ho proved that a large number' of rews asencieg and newspapers In Germany and elsewhere whii-h had rot subscribed to the r-ri;- received ar.d published the fa'-mvssftse. Immediate and thorough investigation into circumstances ' surrounding the crash of the spectators' street stand at Madison , ana Colorado streets during yesterday's Rose Tournament pa- r'ade will be made by Pasadena officials, it was stated last nighi by James Howard, Pasadena City Attorney. At the same timt ' the Impending investigation was announced, efforts to locate, : P F Phoney, 1018 South Orange Grove avenue, by whom the s I building permit for the structure was obtained and under whost i management seats for the stand were sold to parade spectators were Unavailine. It was stated at the Mahoney residence that Msheney had not been home curing the afternoon and that he maintains no offloe in Pasadena where he might be located. The Pasadena city, directory gives no business address for Mahoney, who Is said to be a building conti actor, CITS' HELD NOT LIABLE In announcing the city's plans for thorough Inquiry into the crash, Howard deolared that In his opinion, the city of Pasadena Is not liable In any way for damages suffered by spectators injured in the crash. He further declared that full liability to injured persons will fall upon the shoulders of the builder of the stand "if negligent construction can be proven," From A. C. Shaver, 408 North Raymond street, chief building inspector for Pasadena, it was learned that official statement ot the department will , not be made until Shaver can consult with Howard, and check over his records. Shaver further declared he first will obtain direct Information as to the stand construction from C. B. Buck. nail, 180 North Chester street, the building Inspector assigned to inspection of all stands erected along the parade route, ma jority of which are understood to have been constructed by Mahoney. Each of the grand stands, Shaver declared, was subject to stringent tests of strength as required by the city building ordinances, in this case a load teat of twice the required carrying capacity of the structure, or 260 pounds of dead weight to the square foot. This test was given under Bucknall, according to Shaver's information last night, and Bucknall was characterized by his chief as one of the moat proficient men in this lino In Southern California. FIRST OF ITS KIND Mahoney waa Identified by Shaver as the man to whom the building permit for the structure was awarded and ho further veiatab-lished the builder as having followed similar activities for Tournament of Roses parades for the last several years. Yesterday's ac cident was the first of the kind government. It will be conducted along two lines, Howard said, which he gave as follows: First, to determine whether or pot the specifications for that type of construction as contained in the Pasadena building ordinance, are faulty. Second, to determine whether or not there was any failure of adequate Inspection by the city building inspector" office. While Howard's opinion absolved the city of liability in the affair, he further declared the Tournament of Roses Association can in no way be held accountable by the injured persons. Thla statement upholds tho one made short ly after the accident by Malcom .A- Fraser. ;etary.manager the Tournament of Roses, which denied all responsibility on the part of the association. Fraser e statement follows: "Our association has not now nor has it ever been connecte'd in any way with the erection of stands in Pasadena. Such stands are built on private property by persons entirely outside - our authority." GIVES OPINION Howard, who wss Interviewed at his home at 26 Oak Knoll Garden, gave as his opinion, that: 'If negligent construction can be proven, the owner of the stand would be liable to Injured persons. There would be no liability on the part of the city." All such damage actions would be ot a civil nature, he further declared, unless gross negligence in construction is proven. In the latter case, the faulty construction should be recognized by the inspecting official, who might be made personally liable for damages.
