Tree Halts Driverless Gasoline Tank Truck TAFT, AUK. 24.—A pepper tree probably saved the residents of eastern Kern street from a disastrous fire a few days ago, when a tank truck and trailer carrying 1600 gallons of gasoline, was set into motion without benefit of driver, and rolled through the intersection at Fourth street and into the 300 block. Gaining 1 momentum in its flight, it had almost reached the intersection at Third street, when It swerved, crossed to the other side of the street, jumped the curb, and hit a pepper tree. The impact crushed and uprooted the tree, but the. truck was stopped. rom were I sit ... Joe Marsh How Different Will be r- Post-war Homes? Matt Doorly, our local carpenter, has .been showing us architect's drawings of the kind of post-war houses that we're going to live in. Some of them look like squared-off dominoes; some are streamlined like they were going to fly. And they're all filled with fancy things like air- conditioning and what-not "Sure change our home life!" Matt says importantly. "Shucks," says Dan Mason, "it isn't the shap,e of a house, or the gadgets in it, that make up your home life." "What is it then?" says Matt No. 91 of a Series "It's the littJe things,* 1 says Dan. "Like a well-worn chair before the fire—and « good book —and a friendly glass of beer after a hard day's work. Little things, that are a part of living." From where I sit, Dan's absolutely right And I think the men who dream of home from overseas agree—that it's the small, familiar pleasures, that add up to home. , 1944, Brewing Industry Foundation f i rowing 1 importance of Irrigated pastures in sustaining California livestock production is emphasized in the most recent California Livestock and Range report, J. R. Bright, chairman of the Kern County Agricultural Adjustment Agency, declared today. ' "While the normal grain harvest haa opened large acreage of stubble of fair to good quality to flocks and herds and an important part of pasture feed In the central valleys is now coming from this source," Bright said, "irrigated pastures have furnished the most dependable forage production in the stafe this year." The repoi't shows that the throe most northern districts of the state and Southern California have pasture conditions above or near the 20-year average. The Kern County AAA committee has recommended for continuance in the 19-15 Agricultural Conservation Program the provisions which have encouraged and assisted the development and seeding of permanent pastures over a period of years. Mr. Bright said that while specifications and payment rates have not yet been given final approval by the AAA in Washington the local AAA is assured that a soil building: practice provision covering- improvement and establishment of permanent pastures will be included in the 1945 docket. Wheat purchases by the Commodity Credit Corporation in California to carry out the intent of Congress to support prices of essential commodities, as provided in the recent Price Control Extension Act, arc now being riwdc, according to Dave Davidson, chairman of the state AAA committee. I\Ir. Davidson said today that producers, dealers, or any other person holding wheat may take advantage of the offer to purchase. The price Is $1.65 per bushel for United States No. 1 -wheat, at San Francisco or Los Angeles loaded on cars. The price at county points is the San Francisco or Los Angeles price less freight and freight tax. Appropriate discounts are provided for lower grades. An alternative procedure under the CCC will purchase warehouse receipts for wheat at one cent below the loan value at country points when wheat is stored in approved warehouses. Davidson pointed out that offers to sell will not be handled through state or county AAA committees, but should be directed by wire or mail to Earl C. Corey, regional director, Commodity Credit Corporation. Sales will be completed on the of official sample and grading.
