Pierce did not further explain his reference. Earlier in his argument h« had intimated his clients' nrrest was a political move.

P. FfiYc/J/io/o, Today's Pictures With Today 's News Girls' Kisses More Deadly Than Men's, Test Reveals PIEDMONT. March f). — Women's titties are more "deadly" than man's at least in the experiments contacted in Piedmont High School's liology classes conducted by Pro- 'essor San ford Siegrist. The test — fortunately, perhaps— jroves, however, that this Is the case only in the experiments con- lucted by SieRrist's students. II nil began when Hie. students, nt heir instructor's Insf ig.ition. decided o learn if osculation, as usually practiced, can transmit disease forms from the kisser to the kissee." The students frequented dusty corners, sought out classmates with colds and did everything possible to Kut scientifically germ-laden lips. Then they kissed—not each other —but sterilized squares of cotton, and dabbed the, cotton on a "culture" surface and put the culture away to "incubate." "Women needn't worry," Professor Siegrisl. declared, "because T believe students of the so-called 'weaker' sex were more enthusiastic when it came lo kissing an uninterested ball oT cotton than their masculine fellow experimenters; so this test need not he considered conclusive, as all tilings were not equal."

Lynn of Los Antfele?, to read. Merriam has gone lo Southern California /or the week-end and will not return until Tuesday or Wednesday. As some of the members, suspected of a desire to put the executive "on the spot." are known to have intended to interrogate Merriam, his absence may post none final disposition of the resolution, unless the letter to he rend hy Lyon pntisfies tho.se who would pin tho Governor down to endorsement of a specific $200 a month for persons over 60 years of ape. AMOUNT UNFIXED The Governor's letter will recommend that Congress he permitted to fix the amount of pension to he paid to the aged. The endorsement he desires made in the resolution is of the "basic principles" of the Townsend plan, as lie explained In his radio speech last Monday night. Many of the Legislators privately express the view that the Republican party platform plank on the subject was fully carried out when the Legislature memorialized Congress, at the January session, to study the Townsend plan. These same Legislators are inclined to RO along with the Governor, allnuugh feeling that the pending fight over the matter is unfortunate. It has given the foes of the administration a new opportunity to use up valuable time, if not cause embarrassment. HOLDS UP AID FUNDS The Governor's absence from the capital, unless he signs the urgency bill passed a few days ago to authorize Controller Eay L. Riley 10 transfer money from special fund? lo SERA until unemployment relief bond issue money is available next month, may hold up relief work for several days, according to Hilcy. He cannot transfer the .$10,000,000 needed until the Governor signs the bill and so far as could be determined, he had not signed it before leaving for Los Angeles. "lie California Relief Commission oday voted approval of a proposal o request $4,3r>0,000 in earmarked 'edrral funds to finance a State elf help cooperative relief program.

Proposals to divert $0.000,000 of this bond money for use in cooperative self-help projects met opposition from commission members. They declared the entire sum will be needed to carry out direct relief as no more Federal funds wilt be available before May IS. They pointed out that the Federal Government recently allot od $9,(100,000 to California and the budget for the present relief program until May 15 colls for an estimated expenditure of $35.000.000. Between the Federal allotment and the $2-1.000.000, they said, they will .still be ?2,000,0no short of this estimate.

Although transfer of sufficient funds to keep SKUA going until the 124,000,000 bond issue is sold is now nit of the Legislature's hands, the •production-for-use" theory which Epic Democrats endeavored In tack on to the transfer bill is still likely to produce fireworks. Three members of the Assembly Unemployment Committee went to San Francisco today to attend the meeting of the itate Unemployment Relief Com- nission in an effort to win that .indy's acceptance of the so-called 1 ' self-help cooperatives." The committee will hold a hearing next Thursday night on the bill of Assemblyman James J. Boyle and 2fi others to spend one-fourth of all State and Federal Relief money through cooperative units. COLLEC.E WAR LOOMS The regional four-year college fight will be brought to a head sooner than expected tis n result nf the decision of the Assembly Committee on Teachers Colleges to send the bill creating the proposed system of higher education to compete with the University of California to the floor without a hearing. Members of the committee feared the effect of the showing friends of the university would make at a hearings and endeavored to tako thp university by surprise. Two bills were reported out and will be up for action In the Assembly in the next few days. One of them, sponsored by Assemblyman H. D. Anderson of Palo Alto and Roy J. Nielsen of Sacramento would convert the seven State Teachers Colleges and the Sacramento .Junior College into four- year institutions of general collegiate scope. The other measure would drop the word "Teachers" from the names of the several State Teachers Colleges. TEST IMMINENT The Senate Committee to which similar bills were assigned will hold a hearing next Friday. By that time tho test on whether the University of California is to have a series of small rivals claimini: a share of tho funds the Sfate is ahle tn spend for higher education will have been met in the Assembly.

Practically all of the Senate committees have orgnni/od and started ropnrtinc out bills. The committee on education, incidentally, elected Senator William F. Knowlnnd of Alameda County as its vice-chairman. In the Assembly, notwithstanding a host of other issues, the Governor's budget, coupled with the revenues required to meet its proposed expenditures, is the first concern of Administration force?. The Ways and Menus Committee will give attention during the coming week to items on which requests have been filed for increases, with the University of California appropriation for support scheduled as the subject of a hearing Wednesday night. ) SHOT. -iiim terrier, advert isnl IMfi Avriiur.

Then, she says, hnth can cheer the same teams at fonlhali and basketball games between U. C. and U. S. C.— Shan) phnlo. BERKELEY, March 9.—Miss Margaret Alexander, member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority, will transfer from University of California to University of Southern California next Fall. There's an impui hint reason why, after three years on the Berkeley campus, Miss Alexander will seek her sheepskin Crnm the Trojan rival of Ihe Golden Bear. Her firmco, Ilawrenco Scliullz, is a Junior nt U. S. C. He'll claim her as his hrirle after hnlh finish their university work. "And, then" ask:; Miss Alexander "whnl, land of a happy family do you think we'll be if I had my de- Ri'ce from CaliforniR and my husband his from U. S. C.? How do yon suppose we'd survive football and basketball games?" There's also a sentimental reason for the transfer. Miss Alexander and Schultz plan to march together in academic procession at their graduation before walking to the aliar at a second important ceremony. Announcement of the engagement of Miss Alexander, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tt. fl. Ale\ r ander of San Diogo, and Schultz was made during Urn Washington's Birthday holiday recess at a tea at Cocoanut Grove in the Hotel Ambassador nt Los Anpnles.

March 0.—Two hn!- lots were taken today by the jury trying David Lamson a second time for the murder of his wife, Allenc —each resulting in a unanimous verdirt. The ballots, however, had nothing to do with the fate of David I.amson. Instead, they concerned the weekend activities of the six women and eight men shut away from the world for the duration o£ the trial, which will enter its fourth week fm Monday. On a day too bright to stay in, loo damp underfoot, in the opinion :>f Sheriff George Lyle, to risk possible colds from a picnic, the first ballot brought in n verdirt in favor of n motion picture show, preceded by a walk in the sunshine. CHURCH REJECTED The second ballot was equally unanimous in declaring church "out" ns a Sunday occupation. Each of the twelve jurors and two alternates adheres to a different denomination. Bailiff Claude Card rf- vealcri. Fourteen separate church services in one day seemed rather difficult to manage, with all the will in the world—and the jurors cannot be allowed to go their separate ways. In a friendly compromise they agreed to forego church altogether. Cheerful friendliness and a gay acceptance of inevitable inconvenience mark the atmosphere of the special jury "lounge room" on the sixth floor of the Sainte Claire Hotel. By consent, the strain of listening to testimony on which they must decide issues of n man's life, death, liberty, is put out of mind during the week-end recess. Instead, the talk is of "vulnerable" or "invulnerable", "drop two and purl one", "jump your kind", as groups nalhpf for contract, checkers and an interchange of the technicalities of crochet, knitting and embroidery. 'RETIRE FROM WOULD' Nevertheless, the inconveniences of being held Incommunicado are real enough. No telephone calls ore allowed, even between jurors and members of their iinmediatr families. All incoming and outgoing mail is "censored" by Judge Robert Syer before being sent on its way. So many letters of comment, throat and advice have been received by attorneys on both sides since thr beginning of the trial that Judge Syer deems it inexpedient to lake the .slightest risk of having any thins concerning the issues at stake reach the jurors except what they hear in the courtroom. Only one woman juror foresaw another difficulty of incarceration— and thereby won the gratitude of her sisters. Because the jury must not be separated and must not meet any member of the outside public, it is impossible for the women members to RO to the beauty parlor for rehabilitation of their looks. CURLING IRON SAVES DAT Mrs. Emma Barton, however, made high score for thoughtfulness. She brought an electric curling iron with her. And instead of keeping it to herself, she is doing a land-office business as an amateur hair-dresser for her follows. Mrs. Ella Bostwick came nearest to encroarhintf on the "taboo" subject of the trial. Mrs. Tlnstwirk lias just begun knitting ono of tho?p clabdrntn bedspreads, which, nl. (lie mnmmt. has reached thp stage of about one foot long and four indies wide. "At this rate," slip remarked, "I may have it nil dour by Ihf time WP. ppt nut nf here." MATTER, JURY'S 'HERS* Orchids of the day were figuratively presented to Gus A. Maupr by his fellow jurors. Tt was Mauer who rose in court at the close of yesterday's session and pointed his finger at the judge. "Your honor," he said, "we're up against a long, hard week-end. We want some amusement and entertainment to put this trial completely out of our minds until Monday." Judge Syer smilingly consented to "take the matter under advisement and see what could be done." Hence cheers for Mauer. BEER, SMOKES 'OUT' However, officials of Santa Clara County have one wary eye on the exchccquer. The hiph rest of a lengthy trial is no matter for sneezing. There will be no long ou{-of- lown trips on the "off days," Deputy Sheriff Card and M"P=. Nefta Snow, matron, announced.

Insull him«& <RSC %*stl- fying as court adjourned. Insull borrowed half a million dollars from the General Klectric Company on a personal note about the time he was accused of em- bcxzlinf; 566.000 from the Middle- west Utilities Company, It was brought out today. PURPOSE OF DEFENSE It was the purpose of the defense to show how unlikely ii would be for Insull to borrow this vast sum as a personal loan, turn it over to the Miridfewest Utilities as- it i9 claimed he did, and then turn around and embezzle such a sum SGfi.OOO from ihe same concern. The note for $500,000 was introduced in evidence and as Insull began testifying he was asked to identify his signature on the document IDENTIFIES SIGNATURE Instill, well-dressed and closely shaven except for his long white moustache, glanced only briefly at the signature before declaring in ft clear, strong voice: "Yes, that's my signature." His attorney, Floyd E. Thompson, Jed Insull through a recital of his youth in England. Insull, speaking with measured clearness and looking directly at the youthful jury, told of, his birth in a modest home on London's south side and his meteoric rise in the world of industry and finance.
