As the visitors announced themselves last Friday it sounded like a roll call at an international convention. The gentleman from Maine told of the rigorous winters with their sub-zero temperature and painted a picture all too familiar to some of us but invariably the speakers would conclude with praises for the climate of our own beloved California. It Is Interesting to note the various reasons for these visitors to our state. Some of them come to enjoy the climate, some come to see •the races and to use the words of| (Conthfued on Page 2)  Members of the Stanford University football team, now in the southland for the New Year's Day classic with Southern Methodist, List Saturday were honor guests at Santa Anita Park.

SURPRISE WITNESSES CALLED  HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 30. (INS)—With the identities of several witnesses clothed in secrecy, the Los Angeles County Grand Jury .today was to ring up the curtain on what may be the last act in the tragic real-life drama of the mystery death of Thelma Todd, glamorous screen actress.  As ithey prepared to resume sessions today, jurymen admitted they had called several “surprise witnesses” but refused to tell who they might be. Since the jury adjourned last Friday there have been several startling developments in the bizarre case, and it was thought «the unnamed witnesses might be asked about them.  Through arrangements made by P. M. Martindale, publisher of the Daily Tribune, members of the Stanford football team last Saturday were guests at Santa Anita Park.  Halting their preparation workouts for the New Year’s Day battle with the Texas Mustangs from Southern Methodist University, the Palo Alta gridders gave the Park a thorough inspection, and toured the stable-area looking over the top-notch racers quartered here.  Meanwhile, Arcadians fortunate enough to secure tickets to the January 1 classic were busy consoling the unlucky folks who could not obtain ducats for the annual gridiron epic.

Tribune Starts Daily Career Here Today  Standing on its own inde-p<»ndent policy, catering to no particular clique or group, the Arcadia Daily Tribune makes its initial appearance today.  Realizing that the city of Arcadia needs and is ready for a daily publication, P. M. Martindale, publisher, and his entire staff, comprised of local people, are prepared to give Arcadia daily paper of which the citizenry will be proud. Independent and impartial, ^the columns of the Daily Tribune are open to all. Signed letters to the Tribune will be published as long as they arc not slanderous in nature.  Sincerely believing that the city of Arcadia will boast of a population of between 15 and 20.000 in three years, the Daily Tribune is attempting to do its bit by turning to tlie daily field.

P05  Arcadia Post No. 2070 Is Voted Official Name Of Local Veteran Unit  Installation Of Water Mains Awaits Approval  Initial work on the installation of the major water mains to run down Santa Anita avenue will get underway h-ere as soon as official word is given that the federal appropriation has been granted.

Baby  Boy Born to Mr. Mrs. Frank Hinman  and  Bringing to a head an action that has been contemplated for some time, the Veterans of Foreign Wars of this city last Friday night changed the name from E. J. Baldwin Post No. 2070 to Arcadia Post No. 2070.  The name will not become official, however, until the change has been verified by national headquarters, Commander A. E.

In making the change, the post is not making 14 a personal matter with the Baldwins, but simply complying with its own national by-laws.*'  In naming the post, Arcadia, the locality of the post is also known at a glance, and also saves hurt which might occur if the post chose an individual name of those eligible here. The vote was unanimous on the change of name.  At the same session, held at the Three Deuces, the post voted ¡to change its meeting nights from the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month to the second and fourth Mondays.
