Charpes ' that the youth of Alameda co-unty T hre belnp drawn away from their . homes on aH-nipht parties at Contra Costa public dances, which ara operating in violation of a ."county ordinance, -were filed with the board of supervisors here ttv flay. The charges are contained in . a resolution sipned by Mrs. T. C. Kendall, president of -the Orinda Parent-Teachers' Association, and ' Mrs. E. M. Good, chairman of the Juvenile protection committee, both of the Mi. Diablo Federation Of Parent-Teachers' Associations. 'The charpes are the outprowth ; f a complaint filed with the coun-ctl of the Mt. Diablo federation, according' to word received here, by mothers of Alameda county boys and girls, who have charged that their- children, not satisfied with - dancing until midnipht in Alameda ounty dance halls, are driving on to Contra Costa county, where .- dances are conducted until 3 o'clock in the morning. k After considerable discussion at' St recent meeting Mrs. Kendall and ' Mrs. E. M. Good drafted a resolu- tiori which charpes that the dances ' are violating an ordinance which prohibits dances after 1 o'clock in ' the morning when supper is nerved and after midnipht where no- supper is offered by the management of the dance. The dances are conducted until such a late hour, the women charpe. that the youns ioiks ait auwui nviii Lue-ii homes during the entire night. J. H. Wells, county clerk of Contra Costa county, to whom the resolution was mailed, said today that the women are acting under a misunderstanding as to the Lrue facts of the case. "There is no ordinance prohibiting dances after 1 o'clock in ,. the morning," Wells said. "Any person who conducts a well-managed dance hall is permitted to have dancing after 1 o'clock; in fact, until 3 o'clock if the per- f mission of the board of supervisors is-obtained. Otherwise the dances : may be held until 1 o'clock. There , is nothing in the ordinance about suppers or 12 o'clock closinp." . No particular dance hall was named in the discussion before the women's meeting, it was learned today, nor would the club officials reveal the source of the reports or the mothers who complained con- , cerning their children's attendance at the dances. . II' D C ax II.'II r tr A jJCUil VV III DC Buried Thursday funeral services will be held in Oakland Thursday at 2:30 p. m. for j XV. R. Scott, president of the South- ; era Pacific lines in Texas and Louisiana,' who died in Los Angeles yesterday while on his way to Berkeley to spend Christmas with relatives. The services will take place at Allston avenue, which was 8cott's home address during his -residence in Oakland. Interment ' will be in Mountain View Ceme- '. tery- Scott collapsed in the Los Angeles offices of the Southern Pacific and was taken to a hospital. He - .--was pronounced dead on arrival. He was 66 years old. A son. George i .:'. Scott, a sister, Mrs. Joseph Beamer i and a sister-in-law. Mrs. Mary Cojt-, page, all of Berkeley, survive him Down in Oakland's produce market, where men with pockets filled with sharp lead pencils are forever dipglnig, strange facts out of piles of figures, it was learned today that Oakland hasn unheard-of number of Christmas' trees. Thirty-one carloads, besides those shipped in by motor truck, have been received. With this total of nearly 80,000 trees, divMed into the. estimated populatiWf 307.000, it appears that one out of every four persons has a Christmas tree. San Francisco, being a place populated more heavily by apartment dwellers, received only 2 6 carloads of trees. Four carloads of wreaths catnip to Oakland, while, another stranpe feature of the holi- day produce was the abundance of luscious fresh grapes. The grapes, several carloads of them, .came fiom Fresno county where they are grown under canvas, an innovation in viniculture started by Koreans, produce mer'.. chants say. The varieties are known as Kmperors, Muscats and Fresno Beauties. But prapes and Christmas trees alone do not make a Christmas. Oakland requires, besides, 275 tons of 'turkey, between 20 and 25 tons of pee.s'e and ducks, 15 tons of chickens, five tons of suckling pigs and a few hundred odd tons of other viands. But the number of Christmas trees is more than double received here at any previous Yuletide, it is decla red. Beverly Hills Film Stars Welcome His Honor, Mayor Will Rogers LOS ANGELES. Dec. 21. The Who's Who" of filmdom went on parade todav to welcome home "His Honor" Will Ropers, the newly elected mayor of Beverly-Hills. Headed by Doug Fairbanks and other heavy taxpayers of the aristocratic movie town. Rogers' cor-stituency gathered at the Santa Fe station here to greet the "rope twistin' wise cracker" as he alighted from his train. The firemen's 40-piece band was on hand also, together with officials of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce, who have demanded a statement of policy from the lecturing gum chewer before allowing him to be officially inaugurated. Promminent among the greetert. was Raoul Walsh, famous film director, who carried in his pockets a batch of recall petitions which he planned to circulate immediately after the inauguration ceremonies. Walsh took exception to Ropers' telegraphic declaration he would enforce in Beverly Hills the age-old California blue laws, which forbid such things as Sunday golf and pinochle. The cowboy politician also wired his constituency while en route here that he would not go ahead with the inauguration until guaran teed a certain salary, which he will donate to "the poor people in Beverly who haven't got a bridle path or a swimming pool." This only affects one resident, however, it was pointed out by Rogers' backers, and a nwaere saiarj m be sufficient to cover his wants. Rogers urged that any star unable to attend the inauguration send his double. 'If Charlie Chaplin can't come, send one of his boys." the lasso expert wired. "And don't po in with Los An-peks until you hear from me." he added, referring to agitation to annex Los Angeles to Beverly Hills. S. F.
