Bvciyn Lenore Helton, baby daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank B. Helton,
San Francisco, Oct, 1. " President
. Wilson 's mathematical demonstration
that one equals six is a wonder and de
light to the world," declared Senator
Hiram Johnson today, in his first address-
in his home state on tho peace
treaty issue.
Johnson was referring to tho presi
dent's argument that the United States
in reality has equal representation with
Great Britain in the league assembly,
He was speaking before an audience of I
Ran Frnni-iucn hiisinpas men at a lunch-,
eon in the Palace hotel.
"Whatever may be the specious argu- j
T. - -----
ments employed," Johnson said, "the
fact yet remains that an American pres
ident has assented to a partnership with
a foreign nation where that foreign na
tion has in tho partnership six voies to
one for the United States.
" Ton may prove to the satisfaction
o fan irrational international emotional
ist, that one equals six and six equals
one, but singuarly enough in all these
-mathematical paradoxes Great Britain
rer has the advantake and after all
is said, the fact remains Great Britain
lias six votes and our republic but one.

home with Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Weeks,
,n decision handed down yesterdav
v jtp wjiiy. ino decision also in
cluded the conclusions of the court
that the mother was not a fit person to
have custody of her child.
The efforts- of the mother Marie A.
Kahler to secure possession of lier
daughter and the efforts of Mr. and'
Mrs. Lloyd Weeks to adopt the girl,
has attracted considerable attention,
due to the fact 'that . the mother had
alleged her daughter was doing men
ial duty at the Weeks home. Also due
to the fact that Mrs. Weeks is a cousin
of the girl and had been giving her a
home for the past three years and in
tended to adopt her.
When the girl was about one year
old, by consent of her parents she was
eared for by Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Mat
lock. When Mrs. Matlock was killed in
an automobile accident October 13,
1916, Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Weeks took
the girl by consent of her mother and
gave her a home. An effort was made
by Mrs. C. N. Matlock to legally adopt
the girl, but at a former trial, it was
shown that while the mother had con
sented, ho legal consent had been given
by the father and that the adoption
was not according to law.
The findi-gs ia the case, as stated
by Judgo Kelly are as follows:
That Mario A. Shelton is the m"othcr
of the girl Josephine Shelton, That the
girl has been in the custody of Mr. and
Mrs. Lloyd Weeks. . .
That she was originally adopted by
Cora Bell and C.'N. Matlock and-taken
into their home in 1909 until the death
of Mrs. Matlock on October 13. 1916.
That Florence Bell Weeks is a daughter
oi Mir. ana Airs. u. IN. Matlock and a
cousin of the girl Josephine. That
Marie A. Shelton now Marie A. Kah
ler, is not a fit person to have custody
oi ner aaugnter and Mat Mr. and Mrs.
Lloyd Weoks are suitable persons to
have custody of the girl. '
On the strength of the findings the
habeas corpus proceedings brought by
Mrs. Shelton were dismissed and the
girl given to Mr. and Mrs. Weeks.
