W. Parker Lyon, owner and manager of the Pony Express museum, today named his museum foreman, Abe Lincoln, as his running mate in the national Presidential campaign. “Yessir,” Lyon declared in making this announcement, 4 ‘this country needs another Lincoln in the White House, and Abe, a kin of President Lincoln, is the man for the job.” In discussing his candidacy, Lyon said: “I am truly sorry that a great number of people have stamped by intention to run for President as a publicity stunt. All the way through I have been serious about the matter, and the deluge of mail that has poured in from various points indicate to me that there are lots of people interested in my decision.” The keynote of Lyon's platform is to “make the world a better place to live in,” and to gain this end, the of making everyone rich. He has. advocated a pension of $500 peri month for everyone over 21 years of' age. Col, Ernest A. Wiltsee, vice-president of the California Historical Society, from his headquarters in San j Francisco, has overseered the inauguration of Lyon’s campaign, which is to get underway immediately. Already steps have been taken in planning Lyon's personal j appearance tours. Death Valley Scotty, life-long friend of the millionaire hobbyist, has been appointed to Lyon's campaign staff, the latter naming his hermit-pal to cover the Mohave Desert territory. Lyon, one-time mayor of Fresno, has several times turned down bids to run for the governorship of the State of California. The route of his personal appearance trek will be ready for public announcement within th enext few days. Bonus Advocates Hope Roosevelt Will Accept Compromise WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.

E. Westerhouse, superintendent. The enrollment taken in September was 762, and the roll of last Friday hit the 839 mark. “This increase has been mounting steadily through the first semester,” Westerhouse said. “It is not the aftermath of the opening of the racing season here, although two or three students have been added since Christmas Day. I would state that the growth of the city of Arcadia is being reflected in our attendance charts.” Requests from parents to transfer their children from Monrovia schools to the local institutions, received here recently, had to be turned down because of the full enrollment recorded in Arcadia schools. Westerhouse reported this morning that close to 25 Monrovians have been seeking to enroll their children here. At the present time there are several Monrovia children in the Arcadia schools, and about as many local students in Monrovia schools. Children living right on the bouno-ary lines <between the two communities have always attended the .schools closest to their home. Up on Valencia way, Arcadians attend the Mayflower avenue school in Monrovia, while Monrovians residing on the Fifth avenue line are enrolled at First avenue. men in list FOR BUILDING Listed In Twenty-First Position Among Southern California Cities, Report Shows SOUTH'S BOOM REVEALED New Residence Comprises Bulk Of Queen Gty’s Construction During 1935 Arcadia's record-breaking 1935 building permit total placed this city 21st in the list of Southern California communities for the past year, it was revealed yesterday *in a report filed by building inspectors in Los Angeles.
