SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 14. Dr. A. W.
Manler, head of the department of anat

Stanford university. Is on record today
as saying that eugenics .would hover
mako a perfect man or a perfect woman.
"Nature's laws In the mating of men
and women are Immutable," he said,
"and breeding methods cannot be ap
plied to the human race."
' Neither sex, he said In an address, Is
Inferior or superior to tho other. Each
occupies a distinct sphere, and tho speak
er pointed out by pictures the difference
in their anatomy.
"I am In sympathy with the eugenic
movement," ho said, "but It can never
bo brought to the point Its foremost ad
vocates would have us believe. The mere
selection of perfect types will not neces
sarlly breed perfect types, nor accomplish
any good for the human race."

tion of a question asked of a witness, to
which A. V. Kerr, of counsel for the
copper mine strikers, objected on tho
ground that it was part of an effort to
shoVj that tho strike was "fostered and
fathered by led socialism." It was the
same question asked of another wit

Jahn Jauhlhanen, tho witness, was told
that ho need not answer tho question
unless he desired. The witness replied,
however, that he did ' not belong to tho

Jousl. Ho did not know its membership.
Mr. Kerr objected vigorously to the
line of cross examination. "At tha In
ception of the 'strike," ho said, "tho min
ing companies mado no claim that It was
being conducted by 'red socialism.' They
set up that a few weeks ago when every
other resort had been exhausted."
'is thero anything degrading In a
man admitting that ho Is a socialist?"
asked Congressman Swltzcr.
"No," replied Mr. Kerr, "but these
questions ara being asked simply to con

Duel With Pistols
PARIS, Feb. 14.-Julcs Vedrines, the
French aviator who recently flow from
Paris to Cairo, arrived from Egypt today
and telephoned two friends to act as sec
onds In his duel with Reno Qulnton,
president of tho French Aerial leaguo.
Vedrines will demand a fight with re
volvers. The quarrel arose out of the refusal
of Vedrines to give satisfaction to Henry
Roux, a rival French aviator, who had
also flown from Paris to Cairo, and who
challenged Vedrines after he had struck
him In tho face. .Qulnton ordered Vedrlnos
to fight Roux and Vedrines declared: "I
will not fight Roux, but will fight you as
soon as I return to Paris."

speculation- in tho financial district for
weeks, particularly since it became known
that ho was still actlvo In trying to
force congress to investigate the clrcum
stances of the conviction following tho
falluro of the Bank of North America.

abroad at this time occasioned much sur
prise In Wall street.
