g Friday, August 25, 1944 Jrank Meat Co. Semi-Weekly "Zooms" Howdy. Folks! . . . \Yp arc very sorry but we have had another setback on our locker plant at Pumpkin Center. Part of the machinery, to have been shipped in July, was taken by someone else with a higher priority rating than ours. Consequently, we will he delayed again. However. Ihe contractor says he thinks he will be able to hurry them up on the next shipment, so according to him it should not be loo long now until we will be in full swing with this spic and span new locker plant in Pumpkin Center. Frank Meat Company will celebrate next Sunday with its annual picnic for all its employes and their families. No doubt there will be many funny things happen at the picnic this year. . . . We'll tell you all about it later. Folks. let's all help to conserve paper. Whenever you ran, please take your purchases without having them put in a bag. The paper shortage is really acute. Not much to write about today. Have been busy driving a truck, cutting meat and doing various other chores around the place so am not right up to par on the column. What with Ted Frank on vacation . . . Sam Smith sick and all this planning and fussing about our picnic. Sunday, this reporter is so busy he can hardly find time to even think . . . let alone write a column. . . . So please bear with us this week and we will try to do better in our next appearance. Don't forget about the bacon squares that we have been promised this week. They are not here just now but by the time this goes to press we feel sure they will be in stock at all Frank Meat Company markets. And don't forget, folks, there are six of these markets located conveniently throughout the community. . . . MEAT the people at Frank Meat Company. Frank's Reporter SHARING Ky M.\K California Federation of Women'? clubs waged a Ions and tedious battle to create the Institution for Women at Tehachapi. When the federation began its of- foi t to rehabilitate women felons of the state, the women were housed In crowded cells at San Quentin with no constructive pro- Kram for their rehabilitation. The women inmates smoked cigarettes and read magazines all day without sufficient, exercise to maintain normal health The institution established at Tehachapi was created after long and careful thought and the entire Institution was designed particularly to meet the needs of the women to be placed there. The cottage style was adopted, Ihe women being housed in smaller groups. The rooms in the cottages, though small, lend themselves to a certain amount of privacy, and as it has evolved, pride on the part of women In maintaining attractive quarters. When it is realized that many of the women have come from slum background, that which Is provided at the Tchaehapl Institution is truly reformatory in character. The women are given a physical check-up. they have grounds which have been used for truck gardening that has provided them healthful exercise. Some of the women have tended poultry and others have worked In the diary. In addition to this they use power sewing machines ami have fulfilled at least two contracts on materials fur the navy. They make their own clothe.-, cook their own meals, maintain their own laundry and these facilities are available al the institution. The adult education program is easily maintained through contact with the Tehachapi 1'iiion High School only a few miles distance. To duplicate even a small part of the facilities at the Institution for Women at Tehaehapl would be an enormous expense. To reduce the facilities as they cxLst at. Tehachapi would be an irreparable harm to the rehabilitation program. .More and younger women are coming to Tehachapi. It seems illogical that, now more than ever, Newest Well to Be Drilled inLost Hills With the co-operation of four other) oil companies, Standard Oil of California will drill a new test well In the Lost Hills field west of Bakersfield next month, it is announced. The well, which may open up another oil-yielding area will probably go to a depth of two miles. It Is estimated. Previously, test wells have been sunk in the host Hills section but there has been little evidence discovered by these experiments to indicate there is a possibly paying field In the area, producers said today. S.UNDERS when a rehabilitation program is needed for the young women reaching there that any change is contemplated. Wrong living, the wrong environment and wrong thinking brings women to Teha'chapl. Useful and constructive habits can be evolved only in the proper surroundings. The cleanness, beauty and bigness of the outdoors around Tehachapi Institution are factors In themselves that should contribute to the moral reconstruc- toin of women there. Its Isolation given as one rea- son'for the proposed move would provide the same problems for any department that would be housed there. Mature women need less in Ihe way of supervisory and sustaining personnel than almost any other state wards. It has been rumored that boys from Preston might be moved to Tehachapi. It is not likely that the cottage style of housing there would be suitable for boys and much remodeling would have to be done at big expense and the beauty of the interior of the buildings as they now are, would hardly remain the same with the hard usage that boys give to ordinary equipment. It has been advanced that these boys would benefit from farm work The women at Tehachapi also benefit from the outdoor work, and boys mostly from metropolitan areas, are not likely to choose farm work as a life time endeavor upon their release from a reforma lory. Another reason reported for the proposed change was that bo\ s ran away from Preston and from Whittier. Such difficulties are mailers of administration and discipline and cannot be corrected by mere location of an institution. Women of California and particularly the club women who created the institution at Tehachapi should examine well the facia of anv proposed change before permitting such a move to be made and if expense is to be considered, it would seem far more economical to let the present institution be used where it is than to duplicate it elsewhere in the state or accept lesser facilities not: adequately designed for a well rounded rehabilitation program.
