That is the opinion of Mrs. Loretta Russell, medical records librarian Rosedale district superintendent of schools. At this phase of the class instruction the subject mat"**" ter is concerned with advanced . first aid. When this work has been satisfactorily completed the ski patrol' will take another 10 hours of wtok in the snow and will learn methods of carrying injured persons,on skis and transporting them on toboggans and the lilse. • " Mr. McGinnis says that the primary purpose of the ski patrol is to prevent accidents, but that its members will be prepared for advanced first-aid work in succoring the injured. -"One function of a ski patrol,'* he explained is to .discourage inexperienced skiers from slopes and runs beyond their capabilities. The ski patrol likes to provide instruction too, for inexperienced skiers and in this manner helps prevent accidents. Taking Course Among those now taking advanced first aid, who are members of the ski patrol Mr. McGin- ais mentioned: Jessie McGinnis, Gordon De, lano, Bill Alexander, Mrs. Don Bennett, Don Bennett, Bob Lin- ,coln, Tony Reina, Bob Wideman, , Warren Hunf-and Wilfred Wiebe. 'Mr. SlcGinnis also expressed commendation for the excellent Instruction received from Mr. Goss. - » gjhorfer Duck Season I asked Cliff Kuentzel how the shorter duck season had worked -out this year, whether in-his opinion it was more or less satisfae- • tory than the longer hunting period. It is Cliff's opinion that the shorter season was satisfactory this year. "I'd rather have a shorter season and have ducks than a longer one and poorer shooting," said Cliff. .' "How about other duck hunt- •ers, what seems to be-their reaction to the shorter'season?" I - asked him. "Well, the fellows I talked to seemed to think it was all right. We' really had good shooting this year—better than last and I didn't hear any complaints. We've got to give a lot of attention to' game management in the future. Mil- . lions of young fellows went into "the service during the wnTcand 1 many of them want to hunt game now that they are home." 4 * J "^~ "" Good Shooting Cliff said-that" there "was good shooting too on public hunting areas such as Bnena Vista "lake. "A fellow "couldn't go,out there and wander around and get many ducks," he' said, "but if he did a little worlr and- fixed himself up a blind, he often got some very good shooting." Most successful duck shooting in t this county is had by men banding themselves together and forming duck clubs and flooding areas upon which ducks alight. Not Hum-Drum During the last ~-war A. I,. Schrillo, of this city was a pilot" with the Fourth Air Torce in the Pacific. During,, his flying experience he was at the controls of P-38's, B-17's, B-24's and B-26's. It-,was-not what you'd call a hum-drum life. After the war Mr. Schrillo came here from Detroit to settle in this city. He has found existence anything but hum-drum since he came here and his answer is ducks, pheasants and deer in^season. A lot of other ex-army and navy pilots you run across in the hunting fields and mountains are saying the same thing. Tools Said Stolen From Unlocked Car The theft of $175 worth of tools from a parked car was reported to^day to "police by the victim, Lemuel L. Harris, ,2425 Buena! Vista street. Harris told police the theft took place while his unlocked "car was parked In the 100 block on"Haley street. The theft of fog lights,- floor mat and a. spotlight were also reported to police. F. R. Reynolds, 2202 Arlington street, told police two fog lights had-been removed from his car, while it was" parked near Twenty-second and V streets; Lind. aay jfryor, 730 Pacific' street, said that a floor mat had been taken from his car parked 'in front of his home, and Glen Swain,, 1305 South Chester avenue, reported the theft of a_ spotlight valued at $10. at Kern General Hospital, who, since July 1,, has been directaagrthe installation of the centralized unit system at'the county's $2,000,OOC institution. And by installing this efficient system, Kern General-Hospital has met one of- the criteria of jthe American College of Surgeons,'whfch : sets the highest standardSrTfor all medical institutions. 7 ' • 150,000 Patients Registered Several imposing < barriers, however, have blocked rapidity in Installing the nev$r system, Mrs, -Russell explained. First Is the^ tedious process ""of changing .over from the outmoded decentralized serial system of recording patient reports, used since the hospital first began operating in 1922 —the date when the first patient was indexed, v The problem entails the compile tion of duplicate sets of records, one on the out-patient file and .the Bother from the "house records," " da the some 150,000 patients that haw-been registered aj: Kern General Hospital since 1922. Charts Are Filmed All of these pas't records, after In-. dexing all doctor diagnosis on a master patient chart, are microfilmed for permanent filing and recording. .The necessity of indexing-Is a result of an immediate need by surgeons to study the past ailments of a patient. The second barrier is lack of space. Until the recently approved $130,000 three-story record room' addition to the hospijal is constructed, the space will continue to be inadequate, Mrs. Russell explained. At present, the records library is cramped into three sections, on three different floors, none of the rooms large enough to" house the volume of business. The new record room addition will alleviate other crowded conditions at the county hospital, with the records department quartered on.the third floor. Other floors will be used for other departments and extensions, It was pointed out. . Operate Around Clock '• At present, the main office for the records room is £m the first floor where the bulk of the workNs completed. All immediate recordings 'of emergency and clinical patients, as well as hospitalized cases, are completed each day in this department. The records department operates 24 Potato Planting Regulations Are Told by_Craig Clifford E. Craig, secretary of the County Agricultural Conservation Association, today announced gov ernment regulations 'covering- the planting of Irish potatoes before the date' that individual acreage quotas are received. These goals should be received by December 17, he said. Potatoes planted before that date and which are intended as the 1947 commercial and seed crop, will be considered as planting within the goal, providing the planting is in line with previous acerage and provided no additional acreage is'planted after that date. New Rules "If acreage planted prior to next Tuesday is the**same, or less than the farm goal, and this acreage plus any acreage planted after next Tuesday exceeds the farm goal, the producer will be considered as exceeding his goal, and his entire acerage will b.e considered out of compliance for the 1947 price support program," Mr. Craig explained. In the event 'a goal has been exceeded prior to next Tuesday, he added, it will 'be necessary to fur- nisb the county committee by December 20 with measurements of the planted acreage, as well as the legal description" of the land used, and the share interest of individuals involved. As Individuals Under the 1947 program, potato acreage goals will be set for individuals, and only farmers who plant within these goals will be eligible for price support. The California acreage goal is 53,000^ Including both the early and late varieties.

AVIATION WORKERS FIND RICH GOLD VEIN AT RANDSBURG Discovery of a gold vein near Randsburg, said to be S feet wide and with'a 20-foot outcropping, was reported to =the Associated Press -today by Gene Munari, 30, Burbank, and Les Wallace, 32, Glendale. The two aviation employes believe their discovery is a part of- tlie same rich lode on which are located the prolific Blackhawk, Yellow Aster and Butte mines. Mr. Munari, former freight superintendent for American Airlines, and Mr. Wallace, assistant chief agent for the same line, reported that they uncovered the vein on November 10. hours a day. The importance of an efficient records department was emphasized jy Mrs. Russell when she explained :hat "the balance between life and death might be determined ,by the expediency in obtaining information' from a past report. Under the present system, a medi-. cal library clerk need only check the" 1 :ross-index of name and number, and mmediately supply the'case history of a former patient—a patient who has appeared suddenly In the emergency .-ward", with' •an ailment" for" which the 1^jpedig.te,'re.medy might cause death 'Because- of a previous malady. &"" " . -.

The agriculture department followed .the OPA announcement with the warning, however, that civilian sugar allocations for 'the January- March quarter will allow no increase in consumer and industrial user ration levels during that period, according to the Associated Press. In announcing the new spare ration stamp, OPA said, 1 "It is anticipated that the second consumer stamp for 1947 will be made good before this stamp expires, thus increasing the present consumer ration of 5 pounds of sugar for each 4 months." To this the agriculture department added, "It appears unlikely Jiat any increases in rationing will 3e made prior to April 1—when the size" of the crops will be more definitely established and sugar shipments from Cuba and Puerto Sico will be arriving in substantial volume." The civilian allocation for :he ,. coming quarter was set at 1,260,000 short tons, raw value. This compared with 1,185,000 tons consumed In the last quarter of last sar. OPA said industrial sugar allotments for the-first quarter of (1947 will remain unchanged from the last quarter of 1946. Institutional allotments also will remain unchanged. Decision Is Upheld by Courtaf Appeals f he Fourth District C"ourt of Appeals'-has upheld '-the judgment of Superior Judge" W. L. Bradshaw in favor 1 of Charles W.

The condition came to light in an application by a war veteran member of the family jlor housing at Veterans Square, emergency federal housing project in Oildale. Housing officials said the family, which has resided here for many years, was forced by the housing shortage to double" up in the cramped quarters until 21 persons were living in the three-room dwelling. , # Only two vacancies have occurred at the veterans' housing project in the past two months,' the housing office said. - ~ Club's Nativity Scene Goes Wrong Thingg didn't quite, turn out -as was expected for the "unveiling" of the East .jBakersfield Progressive Club'^rl^ativity scene on'the'Wash> IngtonJ Sehopl'lawn'^Tuesday .night.

While some northern forests are well supplied with an abundance of evergreens to decorate the home, the Sequoia National' Forest, a portion of which encompasses the Greenhorn and Isabella areas, is thinly populated by lir. Consequently, rangers of the Sequoia forest, including Ranger Richard F. Droege of ,the Greenhorn district, must deny Christmas tree permits to private individuals, irees Available The householder, however, may purchase hfs evergreen decoration— at Jl a foot—from dealers who obtained the ,firs from private lands, with the owner's permission, or from national.forests in the,mirth, which have an abundant supply octrees.

Main reason for the curtailment of Christmas tree cutting on the'tSe- quoia National Forest, he added, was a shortage of evergreens in the accessible areas. The Sequoia forest officials therefore decided to impose the current regulations.

Depot Established for Distribution of Life-Saving Drug Streptomycin Bakersfield Is among 900, other cities in the nation which has" had made available a supply of streptomycin, new life-savjng drug, which pay be used -to treat Talpod poisoning, undulent fever, and many other diseases. H Recently it was announced"-that the' Civilian Production" Administration had design ed'Kerni General Hospital and Mercy Hospital as "depots" for the drug in this area/ "Although the cost is, still comparatively high,' - Doctor Rilcoff explained that pre r liminary work which led to the disr covery of streptomycin was started 30 years ago in the soil microbiology department of New Jersey agric.ul- tural experiment station. "It was found," he said, "that a 'large group of organisms, named actinomycetes, were capable of persisting longest and depressing 'the growth of other organisms."

The potato industry here has battled the proposed, rate increases since early,, last summer. In August Mr. Carnine represented local growers at an I. C. C. hearing in Salt Lake City, at which time he pointed out that fresh fruit and vegetable growers' ."are already assuming more than their share of the transportation burden." Kise Since Necessary The railroads, on the other hand, contended that the increases were vital to offset higher labor and. operational costs. j. Mr. Carnine explained that the increased cost of potato shippers, based on carloads of 360 100-pound sacks, would amount to approximately 15 % cents per sack from here to mid- western points including Kansas City and Chicago, and approximately 16% cents to New York City and- the eastern seaboard. This estimate, he explained, includes the maximum freight rate increase of 13 cents per hundredweight, plus an increase of 15 per cent on standard refrigeration. Carload Increase "The increased cost per carload will be more than ?57," he said, pointing out that'he referred to cars loaded with 360 sacks of potatoes. The increased rates become effective January 1. = The increases on strait and vegetable rates, as authorized by the L C. C., Mr. Carnine reported, follow: Fruits—An increase of 20 per cent, observing a 13 cents maximum, for citrus, apples, bananas, berries, mel- 6ta.s, grapes, peaches and fresh and Jflmestic and tropical fruits not otherwise specified. Certain -.egetables—An increase of 15*per cent, observing a 13-cent maximum for potatoes (other than sweet), cabbage, onions, tomatoes and vegetables not included in the following classifications: • ' „ _ Vegetable Bates Other vegetables—An increase of 15 per cent, with' no maximum, observed, for dried beans and peas, dry vegetables as follows: Jerusalem artichokes, beets" (without tops), cart tops), parsnips (without tops), desHeens, malangas, dried pepper pods, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, radishes (without tops), rutabagas [without tops), turnips (without tops), winter squash, yams, yucas and vegetables (dried or evaporated). Protective services—An increase of 15 per cent for protective services published: in 'Perishable Protective Tariff No. 14.

It'also shows a promise against tuberculosis, anthrax,, typhoid and many other dis- gfieases, he said. " ' No Miracle Drug, , _ He cautioned, however; ,that it -Is npt a miracle drug. ."For effective use it must be given in larger doses, or the disease organisms ^become tol- { erant to it, and .must be given every 2 to 4_ hours, night and day, and always by injection into the muscles or -blood -stream for it is not absorbed from-the-stomach, Dr. Rflcoff said.* ."It will not; sterilize or kill the disease organisms in a closed "cav- ity'such, as-a boil or-abscess, he pointed out. "For all of that It is a powerful new .agent in the "treat- jnent of disease in man. It supplement^ the action ot pencillin and sulfpnamide drugs." He said'that, the cost of the drug runs-from f f20 to 440 a day, depend- too toxic for human use, and It was later that an antibiotic agent "was developed from a strain of Actlnomy- ces Griseus and named EtJfejp|qmycin. This agent was tested rfn mice, rats, guinea pigs, dogs and Tnonkeys, he said, against tuberculosis, pneumonia,-meningitis and other diseases. The results, some disappointing-,' were that streptomycin was found to be • effective against rnosf^gram negative organisms and could be used in doses many times that needed to treat the'disease without injuring the animal. Government Control Production of streptomycin was placed under control of the Civilian Production Administration, which in torn allotted it to the armed forces and essential civnian : needs. Doctor Rilcoff emphasized that streptomycin is in no sense a substitute, for penicillin. "Its anti-bac- trial action is sufficiently restricted to make It urgent that the drug should be used only when there is .bacteriological proof of the nature '.ot the Infecting -organism," he said.

Maitland, city planning engineer. Business people, he said, have been co-operative and have offered many suggestions which will be analyzed and studied, Mr. Maftlaud said. Richard Gallagher, traffic consultant, arrived last night from Ventura to confer with Mr. Maitlnnd regarding other angles of the painstaking survey. The next step in the city's effort to iron out the increasingly complex parking and traffic problem, will ba the curb inventory, which will te started in January. This phase of the survey is intended to show just what use is made of curb space-, such as bus and taxi zones, hydrant and loading areas, and parking space open to the general public. Inventory Set An Inventory of "off-the-street" parking areas, such as public and private parking lots, will reveal such information as size, capacity, when open, peak load* whether or not they are lighted, and during what hours they are open. \ The next step will be a period when "curb interviews" will be conducted. This "customer survey," according to Mr. Maitland, is designed to reveal the parking demand in the downtown area, what the city has In the way of parking facilities, and what-additional facilities are needed. A "cordon count" will be next. Checkers will be stationed at each intersection adjacent to the business area to count the cars using each street. The purpose of this check Is to determine = the number o£ cars passing through or parking. A pedestrian count will also be made. The vast amount of information obtained during the various parts of the survey will then be carefully analyzed and used as the basis for recommendations for relieving the city's traffic problems.
