Zane Grey's Famous Story "Wild Fire" at the Unique One of the greatest racing films ever made is at the Unique theater, and should appeal to every person who likes horses and rapid action melodrama in his screen bill of fare. It is called "When Romance Rides" and is a Benjamin B. Hampton production, released by Goldwyn, founded upon Zane Grey's most widely read novel, "Wildfire."

TALKED AGAINST E SAN Adolph FRANCISCO, Feb. 21. Berg, self-styled journalist, who delivered a sermon in a Berke ley church against crime and then flooded the College City with bad checks in order to assume the role of a Romeo among co-eds of the University of California summer session in 1922, has been captured in Chicago, according to advices re ceived yesterday by Police Chief Au gust Vollmer of Berkeley. Berg's criminal career during a brief three months' stop in Berkeley during June, July and August of 1922, would furnish fit material for a movie thriller. He came to Berke ley and secured a position as bell boy in the Faculty club of the Uni versity of California upon recom The horse race at the mendation of the Oakland Y. M. C. IN THE REMINGTON !E; ILL BRINGS INDICTMENT SAN FRANCISCO, Feb- 21.--Police Lieutenant D, Herschel Bras-field, Patrolmen William Barton and Mar M. willever, Chauffeurs Joseph Bush, Richard Smith, Peter Boyle and John Burke; Frank Duffy, a salesman, and John Higgins and - Regnard Smith, mechanics, were indicted by the federal grand jury yesterday, charged with having uisuo . cu liv w luiain lii n hi hi iniiiiin of the national prohibition act. ' The indictment came as the after- math of a sensational liquor raid t which took place at dawn on Febru-' ary 2 at a wharf near the Western Meat company's plant at South San Francisco, when the policemen and -the civilians were arrested by three prohibition agents who were lying i in wait to seize contraband liquor being unloaded from a vessel there.

Business associates of Earle Remington, electrical engineer, who was shot to death in the driveway of his home here last Thursday night, have been subjected to questioning by detec tives in the hope, they said, that some motive for the slaying could be found. The officers refused to make known the names of the men called to the police station, or to reveal the result of the questioning., Blanche F. Remington, sister of the dead man, also was questioned by detectives. She is said to have given new details concerning her brother's life before and after his marriage to Mrs. Virginia Remington, his widow. Search for a friend of the slain man, believed to have recommended to him a private detective, Charles A. Dana Collins, who declared Rem ington had sought his services as a bodyguard the night he was killed, is being continued by tje police without success. Remington failed to keep an appointment with the detective Thursday. Detectives stated they still were anxious to question Mrs. Remington, the widow, and would do so immediately if her condition would permit. Since the death of her hus band Mrs. Remington has been Btricken with bronchial pneumonia, according to her physician, and is unable to talk to the officers. M EASLES may be followed by serious cold troubles; use nightly rodeo when Claire Adams rid Wildfire in the free-for-all race to beat the villain at his own game, is almost as good and as thrilling as the real thing. But the race fades in power be fore the big, climax in which the kidnaped Lucy is tied to the back of a horse by a half-witted man and would have been killed in a plunge over the precipice had not Carl Gant voort rescued her in the nick ,of time. Herbert Rawlinson is also shown in a thrilling detective story, "The Black Bag," with a delightful scenic "Geysers and . Geesers," and latest News.

His acquaintances among summer session co-eds in the uni versity were numbered by the score. His self-styled journalistic career in "short stories" consisted of writing bad checks. While police were puzzled over the flood of ficti tious checks passed on Berkeley merchants, Berg was courting a half dozen co-eds at one time. Advices from Chicago, received yesterday by Berkeley police, re vealed that Berg also carried on similarly there. Because his record in Berkeley was prior, he will be brought back to the College City to answer charges. More than 100 merchants are ready to swear to complaints, the police state.
