PIPEFULS ""' i* James N. Jackson Last month when I wrote a three-word biography of James N. V Jackson, and listed "Guadalcanal. Tarawa and Saipan," where during his 31 months service in tlie Pacific with the marines, he has fought bravely, I did not know that those three words would also serve as his epitaph. Today Mr. and -Mrs. W. L. Jack- Ron, of 715 Lilac, received notification from the war department that •Jim Jackson is dead of wounds. Ho r'was at Saipan and doubtless that is where he gave his life in action for you and me and the rest of us here. V We salute bis memory. He went through three of the, greatest battle ordeals of modern times and be went through them as a brave man. He gave his life in such a manner that the marines, his family and those of us at home must always feel obligated to carry on the things he died for in this war. The following letter Is from Jimmy Kadournis, former Bakersfield newspaperman now in the service: Dear Jim: Just a few notes by way of letting you know that I am still up here widening the Fresno beachhead, but now 1 am beginning to ' number my days in California. To Join I!-?9s I was transferred from a base unit a few weeks ago, and wound k up in a service group. This is going to be an interesting thing. however, inasmuch as we arc scheduled to join a B-29 group, probably in the midwest somewhere, and go across with the B-29 boys. It doesn't seem to be a military secret, then, that we will eventually wind up where this thing Is going to last the longest. "Housekeepers" Interesting enough, we will be a sort of "housekeeping" unit for the B-29ers — servicing their planes, etc.—while they go out and do all the "dirty work," so to speak. You see. in our group we have all types of officers and men who will serve as dentists, mechanics, mobile repair men, etc., and, in general, "keep house" while the B-29 boys accomplish their mission. , "Chair-a-Troops" My job In this squadron is something aside from what I have done, administratively, since I landed in the Chair-a-Troops. They call me ^a "classification specialist" now, ' and that is a fancy name, I confess, for the variety of jobs I must do. But my assignment primarily is to keep the soldiers' qualification cards up-to-the-minute, see that the men are working on jobs they are qualified for, and it is a rather responsible task, inasmuch as I am in the headquarters squadron which provides the bulk of the manpower in the service group. "Distinguished Filii>K Cross" Of course. I still don't think I am going to help end the war any sooner, but as a $fi6-a-month man I have no other choice than to do what they tell mo. They tell me I'll never win any medals on this type of job, although I believe that after spending some 15 months as a Corona commando I am entitled to the Distinguished Filing Cross, or something. I haven't yet given up hope. But all this must be very boring to a busy managing editor. I surmise that you are still tethered with your short cords to The Californian. You must have some sort of monopoly on headaches by this time what with serving as M. E., dishing out "Pipe- fuls" to the customers daily, and performing editorial writing. Anyway, Montgomery says the end of war is in sight. Of course, Churchill said about the same thing a couple of years ago, so frankly I am a trifle prone to taking a tongue-in-cheek attitude on "Monty's" prognostication. Ke- gards to the gang. As always, "JIMMY." Harold Reno Wounded in Action Private First Class Harold F. Tleno, United States Marine Corps, has been wounded In action, according to a report from the navy department through Associated Press. His mother, Mrs. Alma Roberts, re- Bides at 1013 Alta street.

Lounsbury reported today. URGE TRAVELERS TO CANCEL PLANS EXTRA LABOR DAY TRAFFIC DISCOURAGED In a report received by William J. Elgar, county chairman of the Office of Defense Transportation, Colonel .). Monroe Johnson, director of the ODT, said that prospective Labor Day train and intercity bus travelers had better cancel their plans unless their trips are directly connected with the war. "Only actual service with the armed forces or business directly connected with the prosecution of the war justifies taking up space on trains at this time," Colonel Johnson declared, "since the railroads of the country, taken all together, have now reached the full limit of their capacity to carry passengers. Month after month, trains have been carrying more passengers than they did even in 1943." "Extra Labor Day traffic," the ODT said, "would swamp railroad facilities, and delay and hamper essential travelers. It would subject all travelers to the ordeal of standing in closely packed aisles or vestibules, or waiting on station platforms while trains pull out without even space to stand in, or being required after boarding trains to give up purchased accommodations to make room for wounded soldiers. Any travel that is non-essential makes it that much harder for the railroads to do their main job of war transportation." Colonel Johnson said the latest in- i formation received by the ODT "indicates that over-all military demands for transportation which have shown no let up since the invasion, will not decrease for some i time to come." There will, he said, be sharp increases in certain classes ! of military passengers, such as cas- I ualtles and furloughed soldiers. Mexicans Entertain at Talent Program Troubadores de Mexico and a floor show by Mexican talent were the events featured at a dance Sunday night at the Union Avenue pavilion.

Charles P. Lake, president of the chamber, says the sugar beet pro- Kfiun lits into the rotation of crops in the county, as it has a spring harvest, because it will o<|U!ili/o Ihe farm labor by having no demand for harvesters in the fall, during Kern's peak season: and the livestock raisers will benefit by the use of the unused portion of (be beets for livestock feed.

Jr.. president of the Holly Sugar Company, are all of the opinion that Kern county has a bright industrial future.

Inspectors E. A. Walls and W. R. Dolan are in charge of investigation. A near record in misdemeanor counts filed against defendants in a single case was noted in the office of District Attorney Tom Scott today as V. C. Hatley. 40, and C. F. Casida. 42. of Lost Hills, found themselves facing a long roll of 46 counts, all of which had to do with the sale of gypsum in violation of several sections of the agricultural code, Deputy District Attorney Roland j Woodruff said this morning. j Deputy Woodruff stated that the I two defendants had been operating under the business name of Star Gypsum Mines and that they had been doing business without a certificate since last June. He also alleged drive, I the charge that the gypsum content | of the tonnage sold had been found to lie below standards set by the state bureau of chemistry of the department of agriculture. "In 19:14 only 7914 tons of gypsum were sold to California farmers, while in 1H44 state farmers bought a total of 194.262 tons, so great has been the need for the mineral on certain types of soil. It is easy to see that the gypsum business is getting to bo of considerable importance, especially in the San Joaquin valley, and it is likewise true that farmers lose great sums of money in buying I waste gypsum and in loss of crops j unless the sale of the mineral is , closely guarded," Deputy District ; Attorney Woodruff said. ': The defendants, arraigned in the ] Thin! Town.-hip Justice Court before l-'i'ank Noriega on August 2S, when they pleaded "not guilty." demanded a trial by jury, and Judge Noriega set the trial for September 22 at 10 a. m.
