PIPEFOLS Master Sergeant Mart "Bud" Bowcn, Jr. The bomber run from Italy to Bucharest Is a tough 'one for the Fifteenth Air Force or any other air force for that matter. During his more than eight months in Italy, Master Sergeant Mart "Bud" Bowen. Jr., of this city, has come to know that run and his unit has bombed its targets so effectively, despite enemy opposition, that it has been awarded the presidential citation. Bud Bowen went to high school and junior college here and has a 3-month-old daughter he has never seen. If his daughter grows up to be as pretty as his wife, the former Helena Rtensrud, Biid should be a happy father when he contemplates the possibility. Roh Lane Bob Lane, a radio technician in «the navy, writes that he has seen Glendon Rodgers. former teacher here, and visited him in New Caledonia, where Glen has the best Softball team on the island. Bob's mother is Mrs. J. H. Lane, 500 Baldwin. Charles Moore Lieutenant Charles E. Moore, Jr., who has received the Distinguished Flying Cross for piloting a damaged bomber over its target at Wewak, despite the fact that he was wounded, a story already reported in The Californian, Is engaged to Jacqueline E. Upchurch of Avila. Calif., a student nurse now in San Francisco. Lieutenant Moore's sister, Helen, is also rv> student nurse and he has a brother on duty with the navy in the southwest Pacific. Lieutenant Moore has also been awarded the Purple Heart. French Invasion When our invasion force landed on the Normandy beach on D-Day. two entire German divisions were held hack from the beachhead by the Eighty-second Airborne Division, which was dropped back from the seacoast, principally around the town of Ste. Mere Eglise, the Merderet at La Fiere and at Chef du Pont and Douve and Pont 1'Abbe and Beuzeville la Bastille. Men of Courage These boys were under fire before they hit the ground. They same down in an unknown country, swaying targets in the air for the German machine gunners. I hold that this performance took as much guts as any show in the war. They assembled as they could, on the ground, formed into units, slogged through swamps, flooded fields and went Into action against and held up two Nazi divisions that might have cut our landing forces to pieces, if the Germans had been free to invest the beachhead. I want to list the names of the Bakersfield boys who were with that Eighty-second Airborne Division. They were as follows: Bakersfield in France Corporal Vernon L. McQuier, 311 Douglas street; Private Joe R. Tanner. 2540 G street; Private Louis W. Zanitti, 429 Adams street, and Private Robert T. Cassidy, 1934 Seventeenth street. , } Mickey Karel Incidentally, Bakersfield boxing fans will be interested to know that Mickey Karel, one of the best fighters we've ever had here, has made the grade and won his wings as a paratrooper in England. The paratroopers, Mickey says, are the toughest fighters in the United States armed forces. He hopes to live up to their standards. I'll give odds on Mickey any day. Stuart Lovelace Here's an example where some genuine technical ability did not go to waste. Stuart Lovelace, who Is an electrical engineer, had been taken into the army aa a draftee. The navy wanted him, got his dis- «charge from the army and now he's an ensign. He's the son of Lake Lovelace, the tennis teacher here who was a pilot in the first World War. Del Church Del M. Church, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Behrman of McFarland, a veteran of the Marshalls invasion, Marianas, and wounded at Saipan, was six weeks in a hospital before being sent to San Diego where he is convalescent after his fine career in the navy. He attended McFarland Grammar School and High School before he enlisted in October, 1942. Frank Schimandle Because of his excellent service as a pilot with the Eighth Air Force in England, Frank J. Schi- mandle has been promoted from a flight officer to a second lieutenant. He has also been made first pilot of a Flying Fortress. Lieutenant Schimandle has his home at 804 Buchannan street, Taft. He holds the Aid Medal and participated in the Invasion of France. He has been on many bombing missions over continental Europe. Frank is a graduate of Taft High, where he was active In sports.

COALINGA OIL LAND OFFERED EIGHTY ACRES FOR LEASE IN FIELD Tehachapi Prison Move Is Up Again in Rumors, Denials Current as a rumor several months ago and denied vigorously by members of the board of trustees and state officials nt that time, proposal to abandon California's Institute for Women at Tehachapi were revealed today' to be under renewed consideration by prison officials, according to a news dispatch today. California Federation of Women's clubs, whose interest founded the institution at Tehachapi were told at a meeting that the 'climate was not desirable tot' middle-aged women," according to reports of the club meeting circulated in Bakerefield. Director of Corrections Richard A, McGee said trustees of the Tehachapi Institution recommended the moving the prison en a more desirable site, and the matter was referred the board for future study and presentation of facts to the board of correction. "The extreme isolation of the prison site presents ma'ny practical difficulties, the 'most serious of which Is the maintenance of an adequate and suitable personnel," said McGee. Mr.- McGee said 62 women were received at Tehachapi during the first seven months of 1944 auguring- a new 12-month high in commitments. He. noted the newcomers "are much younger than formerly" with 20 per cent of the present population under 25 where only 12 per cent were under 25 in September, 1942. Local club women, aware that such a proposal was .being made to move the Tehachapi Institution, felt the reasons being advanced for such a move were not adequate ones and that such a move would be an additional expense to the taxpayers. Mr. Gee. in'his statement made in Sacramento today, said "There is a possibility that a new building may be included in the postwar building plans," indicating that a new institution would be created for women felons. The Tehachapi. Institute for Women consists of not one building, but of a sizeable campus consisting of cottages that serve as dormitories and dining halls with laundry facilities, work rooms, sewing rooms, a dairy and a garden operated by the inmates. . Talk of moving the School for Boys from Preston to Tehachapi was among the current rumors in connection with the proposed removal of Tehachapi. Club women pointed out that the "extreme Isolation" of the prison site purporting to make many prac- ticaj difficulties for the maintenance of an adequate and suitable personnel would certainly not be eliminated for any other institution moved to Tehachapi. Particularly In the case of a boys' reformatory, teachers, counselors and other professional personnel would be needed that Is not not required for the women inmates at Tehachapi which use the facilities of the Tehachapi High School for adult education purposes. Club women interested in seeing the present institution at Tehachapi kept intact pointed- out that the buildings there and their cottage plan would be entirely unsuitable for the use of boys.

Reduction of the city garbage hauling costs from S71.GOO to not more than $25,000 annually if city residents would invest in incinerators for the burning up of combustible rubbish was advanced as a possibility today by Vance Van Riper, city manager, who pointed to the fact that much of the garbage now hauled from private premises could be eliminated from the garbage hauls. "Practically all cities south of Bakersfield handle combustible garbage in this manner and there are types oC ornamental incinerators that can also be used as barbecue pits for outdoor suppers." the city manager said. Few incinerators are now available for thev are not on the market in large numbers to instituto a citywide plan at this time, the city manager said. The city does not permit the burning of rubbish now in alleys, nor the burning of garbage, and any burning job has to be done on private property 20 feet from any building, according to the present ordinance. Properly Installed incinerators would do much to reduce the hauling of combustible garbage that now loads down the garbage trucks, the city manager said, and would probably he a savjng to householders who now use private hauling services for excess combustible materials accumulated on their premises.

Social Security Card Is Identification of Account A social security card is not Identification of the bearer but of the account for the person named on the card, according to J. D.

Applicants Must He Employed Cards are not issued to applicants unless they are employed. Uuyley emphasized, ince it costs the bourd approximately It! cents per month to maintain an idle account. Except in rare cases, children under 12 years old are prohibited from working by federal law. Anyone who has a Job, however,' muy have aa account.
