which led the board to decide that her

Anderson of California.
Mra Sllngsby met these statements with
a succession of denials. She admitted
that she had arranged for the insertion
of an sdvertlsement in a Ban Francisco

merely to gratify a whim.
She denied that Dr. W. W. Fraser of
San Francisco had telephoned to her thai
