Here is a clear cut issue: shall we or shall we not favor the trade unions in San Francisco? What are the factors that have retarded the industrial growth of San Francisco as compared with the growth of Los Angeles?

It is up the readers of the OVERLAND MONTHLY to act as umpire!

JAY RODERIC DESPAIN was born in Illinois, but emigrated to the West almost as soon as he could walk. He has been a miner, woodsman, painter, farmer and teacher. Since his first poem, in 1911, he has written about ten thousand lines, mostly of a philosophical trend.

HOWARD MCKINLEY CORNING is active as a writer, conducting a column of comment in the Albany "Democrat" in addition to his verse. Mr. Corning has appeared in Voices, Palms, and other worthwhile periodicals. His verse evidences a deep love of nature.

VIOLA PRICE FRANKLIN has had previous introduction in Overland, and is again presented as one of the group which has been active in the organization of the poets of the Northwest.

CHARLES CALDWELL DOBIE needs no introduction. Known as the author of "Broken to the Plow," and "The Blood Red Dawn," and placed as one of the four best short story writers in America, Mr. Dobie has a wide and appreciative audience. He lives in San Francisco, not far from the Overland office.

HAROLD WALDO is one of that group of younger California writers which is bringing forth work of remarkable promise. Mr. Waldo's latest novel, "The Magic Midland," is meeting with the approval of both critics and reading public. His home is in Auburn, up among the California foothills where were the richest of the earlier gold diggings.

GRACE JONES MORGAN is a recent California acquisition, coming here from her native Canada. Her birthplace was Chatham, Ontario, but whether or not she picked out the town because it was the home of Arthur Stringer, Janey Canuck, Robert Barr and other writers she does not say. At any rate, with the encouragement of a scientist father, she early caught the writing virus and filled columns for the local papers with accounts of boating, hunting, digging for Indian relics, etc. She also confesses to occasional verse. Her recent activities have been in fiction, with both short stories and novels to her credit. Mrs. Morgan is among the most promising of the younger writers of California.

SARKIS BEULAN, who contributes the frontispiece to this number of Overland, is but twenty-two years of age, a resident of Fresno. In view of the fact that such instruction as he has had in art has been through correspondence, his talent is remarkable. He is, naturally, a beginner in the field of magazine illustration, but whatever success he may gain in that line the prediction is ventured that he will attain to far greater heights. Incidentally, not a few of California's now famous artists appeared early in their career as illustrators in Overland.



It's little I care for brown eyes,
And less I care for blue;
And devil a bit do I care at all
For the likes of you.

With your green eyes and oval face
And the lacquer of your teeth.

I never saw women any place
But brought a man grief.

I'll go my own way now, d'ye mind.
And it's little I care where I go.
I'll be hating women of every kind
For maybe a month or so.

-Ellsworth Stewart in "The Occident"

VISUALIZE YOURSELF IN SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA with its delightful all year climate; its numerous, safe beaches; and closeby its tree-clad, picturesque mountains; its many romantic landmarks and Missions; its innumerable cultivated valleys and mesas; a whole Mountain Empire tied together with concrete highways, making motoring a veritable pleasure; and above all the City and County populated by a prosperous and contented people.

Picture the 1400 acre Balboa Park adjoining the business district of San Diego containing enough various views of grandeur, interesting games, and joyous entertainment to amuse one for many months. The beautiful Spanish-Moorish Exposition buildings form an unequaled group set in lovely gardens and surroundings-the whole delighting the eye and sense of beauty as do few places in America. In this enchanting California city is the

Sally swayed. Mist clouded her eyes. Her hand went out, caught and clutched the arm of the clown, and she turned. So that was it. He had not taken her when he could. He would not burden her now-now that he needed her. Oh, he did love her, he did. He did need her-And it mattered nothing, the rest.

Sally's cry held tears and broken laughter, as her arms went out and she ran back to him.

And over the drums his hands reached for her, and his face was pressed to her palms.

"Sally," he cried, wept, "Sally, Sally -Sally."

The Road to Home

Though written faithfully, his letters from home seemed to have had a way of arriving at his hotel in one city just after he had left for the next-and of never catching up.

Three weeks passed-business conferences, long night journeyings on sleepers, more conferences-with all too little news from home.

Then he turned eastward. In his hotel room in Chicago he still seemed a long way from that fireside in a New York suburb. He reached for the telephone-asked for his home number.

The bell tinkled cheerfully. His wife's voice greeted him. Its tone and inflection told him all was right with the world. She hardly needed to say, "Yes, they are well-dancing right here by the telephone. . Father and mother came yesterday. Oh, we'll be glad to see you!"


[ocr errors]


Across the breadth of a continent the telephone is ready to carry your greetings with all the conviction of the human voice. Used for social or business purposes, "long distance" does more than communicate. It projects you thought, mood, personality-to the person to whom you talk.

RICHARD RANSOM, of Los Angeles. As you will see from his thrilling story of Capt. Matlack's exploit, Mr. Ransom has wielded the sword as well as the pen.

KATE BIGELOW MONTAGUE may be claimed by either California or Nevada, as she lives in both. She is a member of that interesting organization, the California Writers Club. We think you will like her story in this number.

AMY WHITTLESEY HAMLIN is another member of this organization of California writers, active in its work. She resides in Berkeley.

LILIAN AMY POWERS writes us from St. Louis that "I usually find myself so particularly uninteresting that I fear others would also." However that may be, you will find pleasure in her lyric, "The Little Winds of April."

PEARL BARKER HART has been with us before, but she is not a prolific writer and so finds her way to Overland's pages but seldom. She is a native of Texas, now resiIdent in Colorado. Because she has been in -and of the cattle country, her western lyrics have the ring of sincerity. She is a sister of Overland's good friend, S. Omar Barker.

MARY B. EYRE also has first-hand knowledge of the cattle country, as is evident from her "Stampede," in this number. Beyond the fact that she is a resident of San Francisco we can tell you nothing of her.

JOHN T. GRANT, too, is a resident of the Bay region, following along lyric lines in the brief moments spared from professional duties. While he delights in the pursuit of the muse, he is also devoted to the pursuit of the equally elusive trout; and summer usually finds him up on some Sierra stream, at least for a few weeks.
