ENNIS WILLIAM P. ENNIS lias been connected continuously with the telephone business for more than forty-five years. He entered the employ of the old Metropolitan Telephone •Company in 1883 as a lineman and remained in the service when, the company became the New York Telephone Company. Mr. Ennis recalls vividly those early days when, all the telephone wires were carried on poles and across the tops of buildings, before the underground conduit system had been developed. Warning Made By Governor Our Beautiful Mountain Sides Are Threatened With Denudation Governor Young has recently issued a warning which should be taken seriously by smokers. He declares that if they toss their burning matches, cigars or cigarettes from their cars, they will be promptly arrested, prosecuted and jailed. He also states that women who violate the lav/ in this respect are not to be shown favor. The governor's order does not merely contemplate the arrest of offenders after a fire has started, but to protect against fire. This is perhaps the most critical year so far as fire hazard is concerned that California has faced in a generation. A very large percentage of the forest fires are traceable to careless smokers. The dropping of a lighted match or cigarette may mean devastation widespread and terrible. Drivers' Tests Begin Next Week THOMAS BUILDING NEARS COMPLETION Citizens of San Marino whose operators cards were issued prior to January 1, 192 7, are admonished and expected to report be- j fore Captain B.

The Thomas building, Huntington drive and Chelsea road, is rapidly nearing completion. It is a modern and graceful structure.

Night Auto reck Fatal Fatality Comes Close to Family of Editor—Victim Lived in Barstow 'Covered Wagon' Invades Oregon Military Academy on Scenic-Educational iaunt of In-terest and Profit unity. Two kinds of people are trek-ing over life's plain—builders and destroyers. It is the business of The San Marino Tribune to build—anybody can destroy. Any butting billy goat can do that. Proverbs are the pavement of Wisdom street. Word has been received that the "Covered Wagon'' contingent of the Southwestern Military Academy of Monterey road, after a pilgrimage of three weeks, are entering the state of Oregon, where the most interesting spots of the state are to be visited and inspected. Thrilling stories are leaking into San Marino of the excursions through the most interesting places of central and northern California, including Santa Cruz where a forest fire was raging; San Francisco, the "valley of the moon," Petulina and Tamalpais where fire was busily chewing its way through the timber, then on to Eureka and other points. The mosquitoes are calling every evening and leaving their calling cards, duly engraved on the caller. These, with blue jays and chipmunks keep the boys from oversleeping. Pausing for the night at beautiful Grant's Pass, the "wagon" rumbled on the Oregon Caves, where they spent Sunday and Monday, .and so on to Crater Lake, one of the most marvelous bodies of water in America, and formed by the collapse of Mt. Mazama. Here the caravan will camp for about a week. Everything is under the direct supervision of Lieut. Maurice Veronda and John Hart. From this point the homeward jaunt of the cadets will take place. Barstow, July 1 5.—As Walter Kent of Tuweep, Arizona, who is the brother of Mrs. F. W. Collins of The San Marino Tribune, was journeying between Barstow and Bakersfield en route to Los Angeles, his car was struck by an approaching automobile which suddenly veered across the highway. The force of the impact completely turned Kent's car around and turned it over, rendering Kent immediately unconscious. A companion, Mr. Orson Haight of Cedar City, was driving the car and escaped without injury. The car which did the damage was likewise turned over and the occupants, two women, thrown out. . Kent, on regaining consciousness, together with Haight, looked for the other car and its former occupants, who were strewn along the roadside. One of the women, Mrs. Roberson, was sitting up, while the other woman, Mrs. Floy Marquette, was stretched on the ground, with the top part of her head completely severed. She was quite dead when they arrived. Barstow officials were sent for and came later and removed the remains to that city where the next day an inquest was held. Kent and his companion were completely absolved from responsibility for the tragedy. The surviving woman, Mrs. Rob erson, admited that they had been to Randsburg and had imbibed of the liquqid which warms in the first instance and destroys in the second. Kent and his companion proceeded from Barstow to Los Angeles by bus, leaving their car at Barstow for much needed repairs. Science tells us that many animals can understand though they can't talk. This offsets multitudes of folk who talk volubly without understanding.

The family owns the Los Alimitos ranch near Long Beach. Mr. Bixby died recently from an automobile accident. His funeral was held at the Church of Our Savior in San Gabriel Tuesday.
