appeared over the Keith and Orpheum
circuits and most of them are return-

Novelty and comedy is promised in
large quantity.
Dr. Royal Raceford, the "man who
tamed electricity," with his company
of electrophiends, is the headline at-
traction. Surrounded by a stage full
of massive electrical apparatus repre-
senting an investment of $10,000, Dr.
Raceford performs the most astound-

ever been seen in this city.
There is a lively musical show also,
called "On the 5:15." The opening
scene shows the Grand Central Sta-

Two former officers of the Chilean
navy, Carlos 'Zanelli, '19E, and Felipe
Altamirano, '17E, are enrolled in the
engineering college. Zanelli after
graduating from the Naval Academy
of Engineering at Talcahuano, Chile,
resigned his commission in order toI
take a course in civil engineering. His
countryman still retains his commis-
sion as third engineer in the Chilean
Navy. He is at present on an ex-I
tended leave of absence granted by his
government to enable him to study
naval architecture abroad, and it is
for this purpose that he came to Ann
Zanelli attended the University of
California last year and while there
made several visits to the exposition
at 'Frisco. His opinion of the machin-
ery exhibit is that no new machine of
epoch making importance was intro-
duced, as has been the case at other
world's fairs in the past.
Clilleans Like U. S.
The popular sentiment in Chile isl
very friendly towards the United
States at present, according to Zanelli.
Previous to the advent of the present
administration Chile's attitude was but
lukewarm, mainly on account of our
interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine,
the patronizing tone of which was re-
sented by the larger South American
republics. President Wilson's policy
of regarding the A. B. C. republics as
our equals in international affairs and
no longer regarding them as our wards
has resulted in closer friendship than
ever before with the "Big Three" re-
publics of South America.
the green-eyed devil of jealousy has
not shunned Chile and Peru however.I
Fortunately the rivalry of the two
countries is not martial, but takes the
form of a commercial war. This bad

blood is a result of the war of 1883,
after which Chile as victor gained
what is now the northern part of that
country, at the expense of Peru and
Bolivia. This territory not only con-
tains valuable nitrate beds, but also
has the fine harbors of Arica, Iquique,
and Antofogasta within its limits. Af-
ter the war Peru attempted to control
the commerce of Bolivia by building
a railroad from La Paz, the capital of
Bolivia, to the Peruvian coast. The
Chileans overcame this handicap by
building a railway connecting La Paz
with their coast, over which goods
could be shipped to the sea in four
days less than those shipped through'
Aviericans Neglect Spanish Language
In regard to the possibilities of en-
larging the business of American
firms in South America, Zanelli was
not optimistic. He complained of the
lack of catalogues issued in the Span-
ish language by American tradesmen.
This, in his opinion, is one of the great,
factors prohibitive to American trade
expansion in Latin-America. The ni-
trate business also has immense possi-!
bilities if it can be handled without
passing through five or six hands be-
fore reaching the consumer. If an
American firm would undertake to
build a fleet of ships capable of hand-
ling the independent nitrate produc-
ers' supply so that the chemical could
be shipped directly to the market, the
price of the commodity would be low-
ered and both parties would be mu-
tually benefited.
In conclusion Zanelli remarked that
the Pan-American Scientific Congress,
which was held in Washington during
the recent vacation, was a striking
proof of the good relations existing
between North and South America,l

Automobiling Is
Universal Sport
The great Jehovah of athletics sent
upon the earth the spirit of excite-
mnt and competition; he created
baseball that man may feel the surge
of exultation in his heart when a
home-run clout rolls off the bat into
his hand; football gives the trained
gridiron hero the feeling of the Titan
of old when he shakes off a multitude
of tacklers and crosses the last chalk-
line with the pigskin, and basket-ball
throws every atom of strength and
muscle into the carrying out of the
play on the gym floor. The same in-
visible hand blessed the earth with
swimming and rowing, golf and ten-
nis, and a hundred other lines of
But all these things occupied their
separate spheres-there was no con-
necting link to wield them into the
great world of sports. And then in
a supreme moment, the Creator of
athletics outdid himself and gave
birth to the idea of the autom-,obile.
Then Youth and Age joined hand in
hand, the golf links in the twinkling
of an eye were brought next door, and
the whole universe of sports spread
out before mankind as a great pano-
rama-its invitation became general'
The automobile has done more than
throw open the doors of other sports,
however, for it in itself has become
the greatst sport. Aged hands that
had never held a golf-stick or a
hockey-club took to the wheels of big
sixes like ducks to water. Hearts that
had never stirred in the stress of a
ninth inning rally on the baseball field
fluttered with a new excitement when
the whir of a perfectly operating mo-
tor carried them away on its wings.
and said that, if the time should come'
when he would get a chance to
strengthen the relations between the
two continents, he would do his ut-
most to promote a feeling and sym-
pathy between the United States and
his native country.
