There are not enough volunteers (timing out to work at ration boards. Yet civilians must still inert their responsibilities so that supplies can go abroad to American soldiers, to the Allies and now tn the relief of liberated peoples of Ktirope. Women are quitting their jobs in the vital war industries because they think the war is drawing to lU-crnilineiH nf women for the .:imy, navy, marine eorjis and mast guard has slael<en<-d. Womi-n apparently are believing that it is too late to sign up anil do their parl. One girl enlisted in the WAVKS and because tin- headline news was good that day, called back and told the recruiting officer she had changed her mind "because the war Is nearly over." This is the kind of thinking and action that can lead to national disaster. No job can be finished until the end results are accomplished. The biggest tasks of the war are still ahead of the armed services before victory and peace will come. The soldier facing his enemies on battlefields, in the air and on the sea is not engaging in any wishful thinking: there are immediate tasks of survival to accomplish. This :s no less true lor civilians, but l'e\v are thinking ill terms of war necessities nou. Too lunch thinking is being done in terms of postwar pleasures, investments and relaxations. Too much lelaxing of war el fort on the home front can only make tor the shortage of everything from surgical dressings to food for the soldiers, as well as tanks, planes and war materials. And even after the war in Ku- rope has been terminated, there will be a long period of "mopping up" of military surveillance, and duties of Allied military government that will d u t y. Then- is still keep soldiers on the all-important war in the J'acific to be completed. American women cannot safely go back to peacetime pursuits or to peacetime thinking until (he present conflict has ended In all parts of the world. No woman should sit back and merely criti- ci/r> the dropping off of production or slackening of war effort before first examining what she is iloing to bring the war to ;i quick close. There is still a war job for every woman to do. Kinging true to the old slogan that tin? truest test of a people's worth is its attitude toward4he provision of educational opportunities for its youth, 12 school Kern districts have voted for themselves the privilege of paying a higher rate of school tax than is provided by the statutory maximum laws. The following schools voted the above-maximum tax this fiscal year. Hakersfield city, Heardsley, Fairfax, Maple, Mountain View, Panama, Rockpile, Kosedale. Standard, Vineland and West Antelope, and the ! Greenfield district voted the tax measure two years ago. ; It is noted in a report, issued re- Icemly from the county superintendent's office that In-fore a district may be taxed above Mi cents on ;each $lnn assessed property valuation for sir.light school terms and IMP cents where a kindergarten Is added, it is necessary that such additional tax rate he voted by a majority of the eligible voters voting in any given school district In the state. The wide difference in tax rates in various districts Is due, largely, to the fact that in the districts paying the highest rates there is small property value per pupil, anil in addition tn that there is often a small average daily attendance so that such districts receive little state aid. Out of the (17 school districts in Kern county last fiscal year. -1!) were assessed less than the Sil cent rate, while L'-l paid above the statutory maximum Need Adjustment* "The Monies I hemselves constitute sufficient evidence to show that! there is a need I'nr a greater c|iiali- /.linn 1.1 1 cnsts among the districts in h county,' 1 Hnsiness Manager John 1 Itoss stated.
