LQCAL : SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CAHFORNtA/FRiDAY; DECEMBERJ3/ 1946 ; PAGES 9 TO 18 In couformance with a most excellent tradition which they'have established here through the past several years,- several Bakersfield organizations will entertain members-of .the Old Folks Home at tlie Kern General Hospital with a series of Christmas parties. One of the .most faithful of this group'ias been the First Christian Chiirch whose pastor is Hollistcr JIlllerj.This church regularly conducts Sunday services at the home and offers particularly attractive Christmas programs forjthe resi- Girls' League of the East - Bakersfield High School and the . West Bakersfield High and Junior College, I am told, will send entertainment groups to the home for a series of pre-Christmas parties. Various Y. JL C. A. groups also enliven the holiday period for them. I talked over the telephone to Mrs.-Johnnie Parks, the nurse in charge of the home, and she told me how delighted the residents " were by these parties. Giving Gifts, Too "They'often bring them little gifts and refreshments," she said, "and they offer varied entertainment including motion' pictures, and carol singiug.-Our people here are delighted by the visits and enjoy them as much as children would." -Mrs. Parks told me there were. 89 pprsons at the home, SO men and 0 women. I also asked her whether any entertainment was offered at times other than'Christmas and she said that most of it was centered about the Christmas season but that she was sure the residents would enjoy visits in the summer as well. That would l)e a good thing for some kind and public spirited group, to remember for it would add greatly to the happiness of the people in the home. E. A. Kells From Xagoya, Japan, comes a Christmas card from Major and Sirs. E. A. Kell who were stationed here at.Minter Field during one period of the war.

"I do not wish to say that this new rocket plane won't go through the "K-'^j^J 6 ^ sound," Cunningham said. ^Tour-hns my opinion it won't. There is a vast multitude ofi difficulties m the way of thai achievement." He predicted it would be 10 year? before any pilot in any aircraft could exceed the s>peed of sound — and live to tell about it. "Attainable speeds are not limited by power," he said, "but by man's ability to control the aircraft "at these great speeds. The planes don't behave like planes any more when they gjp that fast." Cunningham, Britain's top night fighter ace with 20 planes to his credit, was invited here by Northrop Aircraft, designers of the flying wing, to confer on problems of tailless, highspeed aircraft. , The army's new rocket ship made its first powered flight last Monday at Muroc A"rmy airbase but was held down to a "crawling" 550 miles an hour. This ship, capable of 1700 | miles an hour at SO.OOO feet, was expected to assault the invisible sound wall next summer after some 20 additional preliminary flights. Judge Hears Racial LOCAL MARINE SAID ON BOARD MISSING PLANEATSAN DIEGO Private Albert H. Stubblefield, 17. son of Mr. and Mrs. .Hugh T. Stubblefield, 1101 Virginia street, is aboard a marine corps transport plane missing in a- storm on a flight from San Diego to Seat- ' tie. Wash. Young Stubblefield, who, quit the East Bakersfield High School in his senior year to join the marine corps last September 25, was en route to his first station on the plane, his mother said. The anxious parents had placed their son's Christmas presents under the family yule tree in-.antiei- pation of Albert's Christmas furlough, after a visit with himT in San Diego before he left on" the flight. . According to the United Press, driving rains and snowstorms to- k day hindered the search for the plane and its 32 passengers, as veterain mountaineers climbed the rugged slopes of 14,000-foot Mount Rainier. Earlier searches in the densely wooded hills near Toledo, AVash., and on other mountains rimming _ the Cascade range have been- abandoned, the pVess report stated.
