"That was 'Red's' meat, lie was a machinegunner on Guadalcanal and Tarawa, lie was still a ma- chineg'unncr. Only he didn't have a sun. Drives Rack Attack "He soon found one, though. He went to the edge of the swamp, helped drag out a wounded gunner, an took over the piece. He /tayed on it for wo days, helping drive back counterattacking Japs. "Beringer silenced one Jap ma- chinegun which he couldn't even see. The marines were getting a lot of fire from a gun-hidden deep in the swamp. Beringer 'sprayed' the area with lead. The Jap gun spoke no more. " 'The following day,' be said, 'wo beard a lot of jabbering in tho swamp. We hold our fire until wo saw the bushes moving. Then all our machineguns opened up together. "We soon halted that attack.' "The marines were also receiving machinegun fire from a bouse on a hill overlooking the swamp. Beringer blazed away into tho house until the .Tap gun ceased firing. Several Japs ran out oC the house and up the hill. " 'I followed one of them up the hill with a stream of lead and finally cut him down. 1 Beringer said. "He had a close call himself when Jap bullets riddled the ammunition box on his gun, but ho was too busy at the lime to give it much thought."' Mlrlo W.

Noon, of the Kern County Board of Su- * pcrvisors, announced the "inside" county tax rate today as $1.18 and (he "outside" rate, which includes the addition of an 8-ccnt road tax as $1.20. Las! year the lax rale was !)<S cents on every $100 of assessed valuation. Last year's rnie <*f T cents was increased to S rents tliis year because (if increased costs. In approving and fixing the tax ratos for (lie ItM-l-HM." fiscal year. Mr. Noon, cliniriniin of* tlit 1 Hoard of Supervisors, made tlio following statement which clarifies and i»x- plains the difference between the. tax n rales of tin's year and those of 1,-jst year. 104.1-104'*: "The exceptionally low tax rite of OS rents for the IJM.'J- 1H44, a.« compared to S1.1S for the 10-14-1 IMfi fiscal year, depleted the fund sui'pluses so that there, was $;;H2,D7-1 loss bal.'inre on hand (o meet I ho current budget requirements. The major items of proposed expenditure"' for Hi44-imr> likewise contributing to the necessary increase were $t!7U,112 for in creased salaries and wapes of general county em- ployes, the addition of $42,000 as the county's pro-rnta contribution to the newly enacted retirement plan and $'J4"i,000 that has been provided for postwar activities. • In order to meet the current obligation of the county and to cope with the aforementioned conditions, the increase in lax rate from OS cents to $1.18 was mandatory," <Mr. Xoon added. Once before, many years ago, the county had acquired a lar^e cash surplus in its treasury and was enabled, by throwing this fund into operating expenses for the county, if) create an exceptionally low tax rate for one year. However, at the expiration of that year the tax rate jumped back to normal. Last year an appreciable reduction was made in the tax rate by usins up the cash surplus. This year that surplus has been expended and salary costs -in addition to other increases in county government expenses have resulted in the return to a rate morn nearly approximately the normal, Mr, Xoon explained.

Xelson, distriet superintendent. The report, showing enrollment trends, budgetary items and teaching loads, indicated that the cost per unit of average daily attendance for the school year, which concluded last -lime, was $lfi.S7 less than the cost of providing instriTction per student the previous year when the average cost per student was $2-17.42. The report also indicated that the average cost per unit of average daily attendance in the individual schools of the district varied. AVHh an average daily attendance of :mt.1.«r> for the 194:1-1944 school year. the, average cost per student at Bakersfield High School was $238.02.

The statistical report also indicated that the average teaching load of the year, which ended this summer equalled approximately that of the average teaching load in prewar years. A slight increase was shown for (he 1943-1944 school year over the previous year, chiefly due to the fact that the load was lighter in 1942-1943 because of the larger number of student drop-outs. The average load per teacher In Bakersfield High School during the past school year was 22.IS: at East Bakersfield High School, 21.OS; Shafter High School. 1, p >.(>7; 3!cF;irland High School. 17.37; Kernville Junior High School, 17.5; and Bukersfield .Junior College, lO.fil.

S District, Chart Reveals Annual statistical report of Kern County Union High School district was presented to the district board of trustees by Superintendent ThoTnas L,. Nelson at a regular board meeting- last night. Total average Saily attendance for the district, for 1943-1944 was 4506, a decrease of 16 from last year's 4G22 and a considerable drop irom the 1940-1941 figure of 6123. Breaking down this figure, Doctor Nelson explained that Bakersfield High School enrollment had increased over last year, while junior college had gone down und special day and evening classes had been dropped entirely this year. Main increase in high school enrollment was in the ninth grade. Assessed valuation per student has increased this year from $29,956 in 1940-1941, to $43,922 last year, to $44.525 this year because average daily attendance has decreased while total assessed valuation is higher. Teacher Load Teacher load is approaching normal, with a figure of 2:1.95 as average per teacher at Bakersfield High School, Dr. Nelson stated, explaining that the average for the state is 25. Loud In 1942-1943 was 21.87 ^t that school. Kcrnvjlle teacher load is still the lowest, at 17.5. Bakersfield Junior College teacher load is 11.11 since in spite of decreasing enrollments, certain classa must be maintained for college entrance preparation. A group of Bakersfield High School faculty members recently presented to Doctor Nelson a survey in which they showed that they were carrying heavier class loads than those in other schools throughout the state. Net current ^cost of operation per unit of average daily attendance for the district was $230,65 for 1943-1944. a drop from the $247.41 figure of 1942-1943 when many pupils left school for the armed forces or defense jobs and faculty members, already hired, remained on the staff. & New Teachers New teachers recommended and approved for employment were Mrs. Bess Becarich, social science and study, Bakersfield High School; Mrs. Helen Carver, English, social studies, girls' physical education, McFarland High School; Walter Conrad, c6m- mercial and boys' physical education, McFarland High School; Miss Dorothy Wilcox, home economics, McFarland High School; Miss Phyllis Anderson, Kernville High School. Salaries for alj are $1*00 plus special temporary coat of living adjustment of $300. In answer to a communication from the East Bakersfield Progressive Club in which it was suggested .that pupils in the La Cresta area be allowed to attend East Bakersfield High School instead of Bakersfield High School so that they will not be separated from friends with whom they attended grammar and junior high school, Dr. Nelson explained that while East High is overcrowded, Bakersfield High is not and that such a move would be Impractical at present. The club further declared in the letter, written by Secretary Charles N. Fuller, that its members were opposed to a 6, 4, 4 plan now being considered\by the school district. The superintendent pointed out that no such plan is being considered. Dr. Nelson reported that at a recent meeting of city an«V district superintendent, a steering committee for a state survey of education, reorganization of the state department of education and consolidation of school districts were discussed. Board members accepted the bid of Future Farmers Company for the purchase of 20 tons of wheat for the school farm at $48 per ton. 4 1 r ft I K ..-:*>• :••: S ::•:«• .ft: f.',' DESOLATION IN McKITTRICK—Sweeping through a block of buildings nt McKiUrick, :W miles here, fire gutted the telephone exchange, a residence a-id service station before firemen from Taft, Buttonwillow and McKIttrick could halt its Property Bought for $62,000 McKITTRICK TELEPHONE EXCHANGE DESTROYED J1 6,0 00' BLAZE PURCHASE INCLUDES BUILDING OCCUPIED BY J.

Mr, Shcehan will enforce tn<; decisions made by rent control boards and hear complaints arising from enforcements.

This would include the case of landlords evicting tenants on the pretense of using such housing accommodations for their own residence. An evicted tenant might justly complain and a landlord prosecuted for such deception under the rent control ordinance. Some of the hoards within the county have functioned more adequately than others and it will be Mr. Hheehan's service to assist boards and give thorn help with their duties.
