SEPTEM.HElt 21, V322. T-3 SUNDAY TELEPHONE PECULIARITIES IN FRANCE Find Traces of Early Indian Tribes HIS ADDS 10 PFDDUGTS OF OHE CHILD 1- Oit is ii 4 i SN- 4 i I I i Id xX )1 4 Vac rat; -her of the I interesting French Tel ephone System la the fact that when a person dVidea to become a Is for him not piiiy to make the usual application and sign -tt contract, hut also to select his own telephone instrument. The reason for this is that the telephone system is pwneii and "P' -rated exclusively by the government, however, does not ni.ftuifioture sm.h equipment. It has become necessary, therefore, 'to rely solely on pri-' vate 'manufacturers 'to supply tlio telephones. Owing to certain politiial considerations, surh as the need for the total avoidance of any government favoritism, the product of no one manufacturer can be designated, as a standard, with the result that hundred different types have received official approval.

How bewildering such an array must be to the wholly unsophisticated prospective easily imagine. In a majority of cases, not having even the slightest ba--sls on which to make any intelligent decision, he naturally succumbs to the advertising wiles of the most aggressive manufacturer. The resulting effect of such' a wide variety of equipment on the quality of service, can be adequately appreciated only by one thoroughly versed in such matters. One of the most essential qualifications, particularly In modern long distance telephony, isjtandardizatlon, the use of one type of equipment throughout the system. Where so many different constructions are used, it is evident that not all of them can be equally efficient.

Vxit-thermore, uniformity means easier maintenance. One can readily wyxnpathlKe with the French, "trouble shooters" looking for defects in any one of a hundred different instruments, each of which is a mechanism composed of many intricate parts. Hecently the French Administration, ftiTly realizing all these dsndvantages, has made preliminary steps to adopt but "one type of instrument. Dut, unfortu-" nately, since the telephone Is largely subordinated to -political Influence there is little hope that such efforts will result In any material success. Most "French" from Corsica.

briar pipes come Hilltop where the Indian tribes used to pather to hold their ceremonies, and where they found their abode in the. early days long bejore the Gringo came, and long before even the early Spaniards located on the shore of San Francisco bay. The Indians had their pick of the 1 lands hereabout and chose the hill which the Spaniards named El Cerrito and which has now become Berkeley Country Club Terrace. IY BECOME rUSTUf Oriental Expert Sa)s Rug? are Made for Sale, not for Love of Art Oriental fug weaving, begun some 2SO0 years before Christ was born, may soo'n become a lost ait, taking Its, place in oblivion with the tompeffng of Damascus stent, the Egyptian mummification of the dead. So says O.

L. Najarian of San Francisco, born in the heart of Armenia, and now one of the highest authorities' OEietituI ru In this He hns Just returned froth York, of the world's largest marts for Imported rugs; disheartened. "What 1 saw on the New York he says. as severe a shock to mo as it might be to some old, master of music should he awake from death to find modern Jazz strains woven Into the scores of his symphonies, ling weaving, the -rt that for century upon centaury 1. as symbolized tli- religion, the legend and traditions of my people of the Orient, has lieen desecrated for the sake of money.

The hands of greed and commercialism new ply the bnuns where 'my people once; sat In reverenee, we.iving their dreams; thlr loves, their lives into fabrics which were to endure long after they had gone." Kajurlan says that during his stay in New York he examined $4,000,000 worth of what weri3 supposed to iJf) genuine Oriental rugs. Four out of every five of them, he declares, were cheap, tawdry imitations, made in the Orient, no doubt, but made quiokiy fo sell cheaply. They of in-ffiior -quality, texture and workmanship, Najarian nays, but worse than that their designs signified' nothing whatsoever. He. lays this crime against the ancient art at the door of Occidental.

import who, with their cry of "Let us have as many as possible as quick and cheap as" have practically demoralized the ms-weav-ing Industry of the Far Blast. Najarian established himself in the Oriental rug importing business in San Francisco eleven years ago, rug weaving having been his life study. Not- only has he achieved remarkable success, bit possibly is the best known rug connoisseur on the Pacitic coast. The Fagool Motor Car company Is commencing delivery of eight "pay as you enter coaches" for the P. S.

T. Y. Railroad and Power company of Washington on the 1 5th of the coming month. This northwest transportation company plans to replace Its present traction equipment with gasoline buses. The total sale to this company amounts to $75,000 and deliveries are promised as follows: two cars on October 15th.

two November 1st, two November 15th and two December 1st. Sample Fageol Inter-City buses, which are gaining favor very rap-Idly throughout the west, have been purchased, quite' recently by the Pacific Klectrio company of Los Angeles; the city of San Diego and the city of liighwood, Illinois. These buses are equipped with Fa-gwd chassis, Hall Sebtt motors and Westlnghouse electric air brakes. The body design has been O. K'd, and approved by Blrney.

If you see It In tli cm so. The tell Traces of long lost tribes of In dians who made their homes and built their ceremonial piles in the bay region long ago have been turned up on the slopes and terraces of the hill that was named by the early Spaniards El Cerrito, and which has been reuhrlrt-cned Berkeley Country Club Terrace. These traces consist of various Indian relics of the usual kind, but most Important has been the finding of a number of mortars drilled Into the solid rock, on the summit ofTThe-hill, indicating the location there of a considerable tribe ot aborigine who made this place their home. Apparntly this Tapscott Building Ornament to Broadway Tapscott Building on the Northeast corner of Droadtcay and Nineteenth street is rapidly approaching completion, and will be. an ornament to that section of the The walU of building are up and the structure is entirely enclosed, though the finishing, inside and out, remains to be done.

This has taken more time than was originally esti-mated because of the. high class of work that is being installed by Mr. Tapscott. The latest ideas in interior furnishing are being used. Everything tcill be plate glass throughout, and the inside office space will be as light as the offices facing on the street." A market will occupy the lower floor, and the Standard Oil Company has leased the ejntire top floor.

E. iV. Tapscott, the owner, is one of the principal realty operators on the eastern side of the bay, and has done much toward the upbuilding of this section. WELL NOURISHED The Government, Professional Men and Manufacturers Studying the Subject All over the country, among rich and poor families alike, one school- child in every three is suffering," In greater or less degree, from malnutrition. Kvon doctors were startled at this' surprising in formation, which wns uncovered in surveys made in schools in every section of the country aiid In Canada.

Women's school boards, child welfareWganizatlons and even the United' States govern ment have recently become Interested In the movement to correct this condition among children. The head of the United stales Public Health Servlco recently wrote to a leading woman's magazine an editorial on this subject of undernourishment among ohildren. In speaking of the millions of school children who were serious under weight, he said this: "Although Jhey may be supplied with plenty of food at the home table, they are as truly. underfed as the unfortunates of foreign lands. When the public understands the facts the.

remedy will be applied, automatically, so to speak." In Chicago a survey was made In several schools ami tha rtport said in part: per cent of undernourished children in Chicago were found equaHy tn- the homes of tne poor. well-to-do, and even tne wealthy." Even further, a department of our government has become alarmed because they appreciate the country's economic ik-mI imt Atmnfl'. rntnist- rhiidrm. Thf (chil dren's bureaa of tiietj. Department of Lador lias iasujl a booklet called "What Is Malnutrition in which they sum up current Information on the subject.

lYom this government pamphlet we learn that approximately 5.000,000 Children are seriously undernourished. In speaking of these children, this booklet says In part: "Jnqulry Into the living habits of these children almost always reveals a faulty diet or otherwise defective health program." Manufacturers, too, are getting behind this movement to spread information about a condition of child health which stands in need of immediate correction. The Procter Ac Gamble Co. have re cently placed what is perhaps the largest newspaper campaign ever run for a food product. This advertising, which Is for Crisco, gives mothers, much information about the need for more intelligent home care of their girls and boys and gives them, too, many helpful hiuts ebout how they may assure their children more digestible foods.

The advertisements point out the scientific reasons why children -must have a sufficient quantity of fats in their diet. They explain that fats are our chief energy foods; that without fats the children would lose their young animal energy. These Crisco advertisements explain, too, why a mother may gratify her natural ambition to give her children the pies, cakes and cookies they crave, provided she uses a digestible shortening. split Into conferences 'devoted to business matters in which real estate men are vitally Interested.

IH TULARE The fumigation season is very nearly over in Tulare County, according to reports received by the California Department of Agriculture from Commissioner Frank R. Brann. To date the results of the season's woik appear to be very excellent, comparing favorably with last season's operations. Citrus thrtps are extremely numerous on the "August-September" growth and are seriously interfering with leaf development. Over 3,000 acres of citrus spray work for the control of gray scale have undergone microscopic examination and as reported to this office during this spring and summer the results cf efficiency are variable.
