Valentino Is under arrest on a
charge of bigamy and awaiting a
preliminary hearing here June A.
No official action has been taken
in the case of Mayo.
"We propose to find out whether
the criminal code of California can
protect the sanctity of the marriage
relations," said McClelland.
"If these couples have lived to
gether as man and wife since the
ceremonies were performed, their re
lation has been, in the eyes of the
law, palpably bigamous. Section 1106
of the penal code reads:
' 'Upon a trial for bigamy . . .
when the second marriage takes place
outside of this state, proof of that
fact, accompanied with proof of co
habitation thereafter in this state, is
sufficient to sustain the charge." It
seems to me the intent of the law
Is so plain there can Be no question
ing of it."
Valentino obtained an Interlocu
tory decree of divorce from Jean
Acker here January 10 last. Mayo
married Miss Godowsky, the daughter
of Leopold Godowsky, the pianist.

cree had been obtained here from

State Chairman Asserts Attack Will
Be Made on Civil Adminis
trative Code.
Wash., May 22. Reduced taxation
will be the keynote of the platform
to be adopted by the democratic state
convention in Olympla Wednesday,
according to the prediction of George
F. Christensen, state chairman, who
arrived in Seattle today on his way
to the convention city. The platform
will also pledge repeal of the poll
tax law and denounce the civil ad
ministrative code passed by the last
republican legislature, at the instance
of Governor Hart.
C. C. Dill of Spokane, ex-representative
in congress, and now ex
pected to be the democratic contender
for the United States senate, arrived
here with the state chairman and will
attend the convention.
High Taxation Big Feature.
"High taxation is the one absorb
ing topic of interest in the state,"
said Mr. Christensen. "It overshad
ows all other issues, and the demo
crats are going to meet it in a way
that will inspire public confidence.
In this connection the chairman
says the administrative code will
come in for denunciation. Mr. Chris
tensen hinted that the platform mak
ers will be able successfully to refute
the claim of Governor Hart and the
state administration forces that the
code has saved $1,000,000 in govern
mental expenses in one year. The
democratic "state committee has had
experts at work on the figures quoted
by Governor Hart and others in
speeches regarding state expenses
since the legislature adjourned.
Modified Primary Favored.
The state chairman was Interested
In the stand taken by the Clarke
county republican convention last Sat
urday against the direct primary and
advocating a moamcation, ii not re
peal, of that law. Mr. Christensen
said he favored a modified primary
law, one that would permit state con
ventions to nominate candidates and
have these candidates go on the
ticket, but not necessarily to the ex
elusion of other aspirants.
"In this way the people would
know who the convention Indorsed
for the offices and be guided accord
mgly," he said. "I would not, how
ever, shut out other candidates.. Any
one should be perm tted to file who
wanted to run.
Mr. Christensen said he would op
pose any radicalism in the platform
but that it would be progressive
enough to attract the many thousands
of progressive republicans, who are
not in harmony wit- the present re
actionary policies of that party.

Fundamentals of Tailoring Never
Change, Says Expert, Who Is
at Meier & Frank Store. '
The fundamentals of dressmaking
and tailoring never change, Mrs. Ju
ditha Blackburn told 600 women who
gathered in the seventh floor audito
rium of the Meier & Frank company's
store yesterday afternoon to hear her
first- lecture. "When you know how
to put a sleeve in correctly, you al
ways know how to do it. Styles
change, but not the underlying princi
ples of dressmaking."
Mrs. Blackburn, who has traveled
in America and Europe studying and
lecturing on women's dress, will give
a four weeks course at Meier &
Frank s on dressmaking and tailor ng.
This afternoon at 2:45 o'clock she will
speak on the elementary work. Her
first class convenes tomorrow morn
ing at 10 o'clock. The students will
be divided into three sections, each
section to meet three times a week.
There are 12 lessons in the course.
Mrs. Blackburn has just completed a
course at San Diego.
Women should observe more Indl
viduality in their dress," said Mrs.
Blackburn. "They should adopt the
styles to their own personalities, in
stead of blindly taking up every fad
that comes along. ' If more women
understood how to modify styles to
suit themselves, there would be fewer
women looking like comic valentines.1
The expert emphasized the impor
tance of the proper lines in determin
ing the styles women should choose,
illustrating her remarks by describ
ing the types of clothes suitable to
aifferent women.
