Ball Tonight Oakland launched her observance of the 145th anniverseary. of Rational Independence with the first gllmpee of the clear summer sun over the Contra Costa hills, when enterprising youngsters fired a salute of 1 illicit firecrackers. On the whole, however, it started as a "safe and sane" Fourth of July, with respect for the law against pub-He use of fireworks.

Thousands of residents of the city were out of town for the week-end holiday and the shady dells in the hill canyons throughout the county were the scenes of many queerly-inf- provlsed camping outfits and a ously-carcfree people. HILL BEAU XX ATTRACT MANY. Especially at Camp Cinderella, the municipal campingpark in the hills near Redwood Peak, were crowds of back-to-nature celebrants of the day toi be found. A large number of boy scouts and their parents gathered at the Camp Sheoak, the scout camp In Dimond Canyon, where games and scouting activities occupied the day. The formal celebration of Independence Day in the city centered round the shores of Lake Merritt.

It got off to a good start at 10:30 a. When a large crowd gathered to witness the program of races on a course near the bandstand in Lake- While the races were being run off the committee of 'the local service men's organizations were occupied wiA preparations for the barbecue stagedTOs sailors of the Pacific fleet at'oon.

In his address Dr. Dille, pastor meritus of the First Methodist Episcopal church, paid tribute to the Declaration of Independence and to the brave political thinkers of the revolutionary period who framed it He said, in part: "'All men free and equal! It was left for the- Declaration for the first time In history to blazon that truth 4n the face of the world to write it above the heads'of tyrants and to put it like dynamite, bomb 'under thrones. Like a flashing sword the Declaration cut the- bonds of the race. Honest manhood everywhere, seeing Itself in the light of that straightened itself from the crouch of the slave to the erectness of the man. "History teaches that when na-tifns were young and poor they followed spiritual ideals and did splendid things, but many a nation, when it has become rich and powerful has grown corrupt and fallen upon evil days.

Where there, is no vision the people perish but America has never lost the power of snlritual vision." In the evening-a grand ball will be staged in the auditorium, while a dis-' play of fireworks is-being made on the lake.

Commander Foote and the other four sailors, however, were picked up in about fifteen minutes.

By A. B. FORD, United Proas Staff Corlpcepwiidcnt. WASHINGTON, July new treaty of peace, based on the rer-sallles pact, may" be the course which President Harding and Secretary Hughes will decide on as a basis of future relations with Germany, it was predicted in informed quarters her today. This, it ia believed, is likely to the next step, following the con gressional declaration of a state or peace with the Central Powers, which President Harding signed Saturday.

The new treaty, whioh is already being characterized by. Republican leaders-as a "treaty of amity and commerce," is one of the two courses which Hughes is understood to have' been prepared to take in framing what in affect will be a peace with Germany. The other course was the acceptance of the Versailles treaty Itself, with the nexessar.y reservations and modifications to meet the approval of the United States Senatl. Hughes first proceeded on the hope that the Versailles pact would be resubmitted to the Senate, later realizing that treaty retaining any semblance of the Versailles document would not have a chance he started to work on a treaty of peace with TJermany as announced by the United Press. Hughes' felt that the rlgts and Interests of the United States could be protected probably as well in a new treaty as in the Versailles' documents.

If Hughes andJIardlng decide on a new treaty with Germany It prob ably will be submitted when completed t5 the German government for signature through Ellis Loring Dresel, American commissioner in Three Planes Lost On Trip to Mexico BY ASSOCIATED, PRESS LEASED WISE TO TKIBTTITE. 1 July. 4.
