THTi mUTIIRL BUILDING & LOAN ASSOCIATION 415 West Fifth Street Michigan 1211 Las Angeles I Fight Ouster Third of L. A. in Darkness as Power Hesitate s One third of Los Angeles was plunged into darkness . early last night when the entire electric system of the Los Angeles Gas snd Electric Company and three stations of the Bureau of Power and Light system failed for a short while. The failure of the L. A. G, and E. system occurred somewhere on. one of the two transmission lines from Los Angeles to the Seal Beach steam generating plant. Company officials said they were unable to determine the cause immediately, but assumed the failure had been caused by the storm. Trouble shooters were sent out to locate the source of - the failure. The electric load was immediately switched to the companys emergency generating plant on Alameda street. . Power was off only for a matter of seconds, officials rsaid, although the citys lights flickered for two or three minutes. Seattle Gas Case Ruling by L. A. Court Upheld SACRAMENTO, Dec. 15. (UR j A Los Angeles County Superior Court decision holding that Richard N. Malone had not protected his rights in a Seattle, Wash., public utilities enterprise consummated in 1904, was upheld today by the Third District Appellate Court Malone had brought suit against J. William Clise on the ground the two men had entered into a Joint undertaking in 1900 to obtain a-franchise from the City of Ceattle to' distribute gas and that the franchise had been eold in 1904 for a great sum.. Malone asked for half the proceeds of the sale. In view of the lapse of time, the court held that Malone apparently slept on his rights and that the trial court had not been in error in finding for tbe defendant.

The new Ford brakes are of the Self-Energising type, which translated into .the language of tbe man in - the street means that the movement of the car helps to apply them. When the pedal is depressed by the driver, . two wedges in the brake mechanism force the two shoes in each of the four brakes evenly against the drum surfaces. This .pressure is Immediately boosted or assisted by the rotation of the wheels which forces the shoes more firmly against the drums when contact between the two is accomplished A material reduction is effected Iri the amount of . foot pressure required on the pedal. The -'brakes take hold easily, smoothly, effectively and noiselessly. ' As the pressure on the pedal is increased, the self-applying action decreases so that when the pedal is pushed down hard, only the actual pedal-pressure is used to force the shoes against the drums. This gives the soft, easy action preferred by a majority of drivers. Another important feature of the brake assembly is their cable-conduit control. To conduct the braking force from the pedal to the wheels, the new Ford brake utilizes steel cables which pass through a. steel tube known as a conduit. Cable and conduit control adds strength to and provides safety for the braking mechanism, owing to the 'greater strength of the cables compared to the rods formerly used. Engineers point out that the cable-conduit principle affords the safety of steel from pedal to wheel." Simplification of the system is brought about by a market decrease in the number of parts in the brake assembly. Many levers, shafts and brackets have been eliminated. Record Number of Cars Expected On Economy Run Reports issued late last week by A. C. Fillsbury, regional director of. the edntest board of the American Automobile Association, indicate that there will be a record-breaking number of cars entered in the forthcoming Gilmore-Yosemite Economy run.. The honor of entering the first car to actually enter the run went to the Los Angeles Chevrolet Dealers Association when that group submitted to Pillsbury an official entry blank for a 1937 Chevrolet de luxe sedan. According to the information supplied by the Chevrolet Dealers Association ' on the' entry sheet, Roy Woods will drive the car in the . stock . car . mileage run from Los Angeles to Yosemite National Park , on ' January 7. A. M. Hart-burg, assistant service manager for the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Sales Corporation, has been nominated as observer to ride in a competing car. Among the passengers the Chevrolet will carry in the stock car classic will be W. G. Lucado, Los Angeles city manager for 'Chevrolet. ' A. A. A. engineers advised that the route to be followed by the 1937 stock cars entered 'in the event has been completely surveyed and that all official checkin stations at Bakersfield, Fresno and Merced have been arranged for. Although drivers in the event should have no difficulty in locating these check-in stations, signs are now posted at these official points in order that entrants may become familiar with them during any pre-run trips. Forest Rangels at Yosemie National Park have fd Vised Tt A. A. officials that every precaution will be taken to assure the route into the park being kept constantly open on January 7. A splendid All Year Highway leads, in to the na tional playground and sufficient equipment is on hand to clear the highway witbin a maximum of four, hours time in the event of snow on the day of the run. Although A. A;' A. rules specify that all cars entered in the .rim must complete -the 352 mile -journey within 11 hours, A. A. A. officials are empowered to extend this time limit in the remote event the highway should be blocked by Snow-for a few hears. New Road Below Ensenada Planned Plans are under way for extension pf the highway from Ensenada, Mexico, south intone interior of 'Baja California, reports the outing department of the National . Automobile club. The road Is to follow tbe coast for 15 miles south of Ensenada, thcri proceed inland. Sportsmen are espe SUM'S PICKINS By SLIM MY RESEARCH SPECIALIST, poring through the musty files, has come up with a number of oddities from 9. n e w s p apers of ' the West. For example, back on September 18 of this' year he finds a . single sheet (pages 8 and 9) of a San Francisco paper .that is really a classic. Page 8 starts off nicely with an advertisement from the Pacific Gas' and Electric Company picturing a housewife who says (in big type): 1 like even the gas Dills! Just fancy liking a gas bill. Well, such was romance in September before all the gassing about the King's romance in December (in case you haven't beard, the King Edward-Wallis Simpson affair). Then there is a delightful editorial head reading: ' Keep Your Spice Cabinet Filled." Considering some of the after-dinner, stories told by San Francisco spellbinders at conventions it must refer to spicy storicaf Then, to finish off the page, - there is ' an advertisement which says: Washing your dishes can really be fun. Looks to me like San Franciscans are considered gullible if they are expected to swallow that. On page 9 we learn about "Police Judge Oliver Youngs of Beerkeley . . . There must have been more truth than poetry in that rendition of the name of Berkeley, home of the northern branch of the University of California. Farther along we learn about a certain . Jack Deader, under 31000 bail on a charge of assault with a DEADLY weapon . . . At this point everything began to look like a dead giveaway, and sure enough we soon read about a CooK wbo quickly became a Sook, to say nothing of a MA described as a six-footer (the caps are mine). The final blow was a political advertisement calling attention to a Knox Rally in (of all things) the Dreamland Auditorium. Well, it was dreamland for Knox all right, bqb how in the name of Petaluma did the-Landon-Knox backers ever permit themselves to schedule . a rally in Dreamland" ? Maybe that was what queered the deal, or jinxed the Literary Digest. Any way, it was. tempting Fate rt much. WHERE DID Dink Templeton of Stanford get the name, 'or nickname, of Dink anyway? Was he the original of Hinkey Dinkey Parlez Vous? or don't you dink so. Will some Stanford man enlighten us with the facts? (You know, it is funny how some nicknames develop. A friend of ! mine has a little boy named Kenton. As a baby they called bim Kenny, but one of his brothers corrupted it "to "Kcnnicky. In due course of time tbe Ken" disappeared. and now be is almost universally known as Nicky.")

The sharpness of Alphabet's wit stinglea like an adder's tooth. CHIEF DAVIS of the Police department, in a talk at a meeting of Willys dealers, said, Southern California is a large and .very rich market and It is very concentrat- ed. On our east, is the great des- J ert. On the west is the broad Pacific. On the 'south is Mexico. And in the north is a limited population. Wonder how he means that.
