In 1918 "The Examiner" published exclusively. Ambassador Gerard's dlaryr under the title, "My Four Years in Germany." , - The articles were read by Jack L. Warner, owner of an independent film exchange on Golden Gate avenue. He Immediately sensed the motion picture value of the story, and wired bis opinion to his brothers In New York. He then waited impatiently for their re-action, but the only answer he received was a hurry-up call to New York. . After lengthy conferences ' with Ambassador Gerard; and numerous trips to Washington, D. C, the negotiations were Anally closed. PICTURE A SENSATION. It was then that Warner moved his residence from San Francisco to supervise the production of a film entitled "M Four Years in Germany," depicting Gerard's experi ences there. Completed in the latter part of 1918, the picture became a sensation literally overnight. This started the tide of success for the Warner Brothers, and from that time the firm has prospered until today it is one of the leaders In tho industry. . And now Jack Warner is return ing to the city that gave him his first big chance. He is scheduled to arrive next Friday to attend the premiere of ' Lady Windemere s Fan" at the Imperial, and the open ing on Saturday at the St. Francis of John Barrymore in "The Sea Beast," two of the biggest productions in the history of his company. , How the organization has prospered since the success of "My Four Years in Germany," is Illustrated through the fact that two of the biggest pictures of the year will be released simultaneously in two of San Francisco's leading theaters, by Warner Brothers.

SACRAMENTO, March 6. Only those voters who have registered alnce January 1 are eligible to participate in the election of school trustees in the various California districts on March 2, Will C. Wood, State superintendent of public Instructions, announced today upon advice from Attorney General U. S. Webb. Contrary to past Interpretation of the election laws, the Attorney General holds that registrations for a given year are not good for elections of school trustees In the following year and consequently those on the 1925 register cannot vote this month unless they have reregistered. This, however, does not 'affect bond or other special school elections held before April 1, according to Webb's advice to State school authorities. The old 1925 register holds good for such elections. Including the one In Marin county to determine whether a junior college district shall be formed there. Superintendent Wood eaid. The new legal ruling with reference to election of trustees is expected to cut down the total vote in all districts materially, since it is estimated that only a comuara- tlvely small number of voters have thus far registered for 1926. In case there are any districts in the State where no voters are qualified to appear at the noils, due to the new election law Interpretation, trustees will have to be appointed by the county superintendent of schopls, according to wood s announcement.
