H. Hecke at his home, near Woodland, that they would raise provided a similar amount would come from San Francisco...... Woodland banks this morning had definitely agreed to do their part in helping the district get the necessary money, providing the bank commis- sioner will grant them permission. Hecke was hopeful that the San banking institutions would see their way clear this afternoon to join in the" campaign. The federal authorities appropri- ated a half-million dollars, with the understanding that the state would raise an amount equivalent. If the state should fail, then the govern- ment's contribution will not be avail- able. "It is simply a question of getting together here and paying the doctor's said Hecke today.

Hecke Tells Aim. Hecke elaborated today on his ob- jections to calling a special legislature session. "We are aiming to save the spring crops of he said. "If the state should call an extra ses- sion of its lawmakers, the number of quarantines in other states would likely be increased and made more drastic, thereby causing great losses to our producers inasmuch as they would be unable to ship out their stuff." Hecke told the governor that he believed that the spread of the dis- ease had been practically wiped out by reason of the energetic action that lias been taken. And the effect of SCHOOL BOY VICTIM OFACCIDENTONTHE STATE HIGHWAY While returning home from school Wednesday afternoon, Max Storz, a sixteen-year-old student in the agri- cultural class at the Woodland high school, was run down by an automo- bile, near Shady Nook on the high- way, and severely injured. He was going south on the highway, when Al Bowman, driving a Ford delivery truck for the Woodland Meat Market, attempted to pass Obe Lowe in the latter's ear, traveling in the same direction. At the warning of the hom, young Storz stepped off the highway, but the passing car struck him and knock- ed him down, the wheels passing over his back and legs. Bowman lost con- trol of his car and it ran up against the bank before it stopped. The radi- ator was damaged. It was necessary to tow the machine into Woodland. Lowe stopped his car and, picking up the boy, took him to the Storz home, about three miles southeast of the city. Bowman also rendered whatever assistance he was able to give the in- jured boy. Dr. M. B. Bransford attended the injured lad and dressed his injuries. His legs were, badly bruised. The student is unable to attend school to- day and complains of pains in the Lead. His right leg is also giving h.m much pain. Teachers, School Girls in Auto Crash Here An enclosed touring car, in which the thjee daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence F. Day, Natalie, Phonie and Phyllis, were riding, and a roadster occupied by Principal Lenear White- :ad and Mrs. Marian Mefford, a teacher, of the Esparto grammar school, collided at the intersection of First street and Lincoln avenue this j morning. Mrs. Mefford sustained j slight injuries about the. face. The Yolo Farm Center was host Wed- nesday evening to Plainfield, Willow Oak Park, Zamora and Spring Lake centers at a big meeting held in Yolo town hall. More than two hundred members were in attendance, there being some representatives from near- ly every section of the county. "At o'clock a basket supper was served on long tables which ran the entire length of the hall. As the contents of the baskets were spread out on the tables, a feast fit for the gods was revealed. Coffee, cream and sugar were provided by the Yolo center members. C. E. Patton, director of Yolo Cen- ter, called the meeting to order at 8 o'clock. After hearing committee re- ports and transacting routine busi- ness, the business meeting adjourned, and the rest of the evening was given over to an address by J. J. Deuel, of the Utilities Department of the state federation. The speaker explained in detail the type of work performed by the Utilities Department. He urg- ed the members to familiarize them- selves with railroad rates, power and kindred taxes on the farmers. Deuel told of the critical condition in the southern part of the state, due to the lack of rain. He said that electrically generated power plants were being run at about half of their capacity in order to conserve water power. If relief does not come soon, more dras- tic measures will have to be resorted to. Fake Federal Men Fail To Come To Court Theodore Stamvood and Joseph Hall, suspected of having imperson- ated Federal officers and pilfered li- quor as well as household articles, in the Broderick and river district, fail- ed to appear in Justice Jerome Bar- court today. Their attorney, ray's James Gaffney, of Sacramento, could not account for his clients. District Attorney G. T. Kern was ready proceed with the examina- tion and Judge Barry was on the bench. That the two men have left for parts unknown and will not return, was the theory expressed by the Dis- trict Attorney.
