It Is not always the war marriage that KOCH mi the rocks, but a large percentage of (he homos that, an; being broken up are those where couples have boon married fur IK or 20 years. In many of the divorces children are involved ranging from 7 and S years to the teen- a Re. In a majority of the' cases, the women are obtaining the divorces charging mental cruelty, desertion and alcoholism. There can be no doubt that many of these women have just cause fur complaint and there can be no answer to their problem except a divorce that will make it possible for them to live normal lives. On the ut her hand, in very few divorce applications docs the story of the erring husband appear, in some cases, it. is true that the wayward husband has fixed his attention and di sire upon another woman. It is surprising, however, in how many divorce complaints, this particular charge is absent, particularly among the older married couples. A recently divorced man explained his own marriage break-up tills way: "it is all bosh you read about a man getting tired of his wife because she appears in a dressing gown o]' with her face creamed and her hair in curlers. .Most married men are accustomed Ut \\ives looking like something less than lledy Lc.Marr, anyway. Domesticity is a two-way affair and 1 call imagine that there were many tiioes when I didn't resemble ('lark (lalile cither al the breakfast table. "That part of marriage li.ts been over-emphasi/.ed. What happened to my marriage was partlv my own Meet Your Friends AT THE FRENCH VILLAGE On Real Road Between Chester Lane and Brimdage Lane Now Under the Ownership and Management of PAT PERRY and HARLY HARTY Continuing to Specialize in Chicken and Steak Dinners FINE BEVERAGES SAUNDEKS fault, but I won't take all the blame. AVhen I married Clara, she was a good companion and a person who was fun to be with. What happened in the 15 years to change. her I don't know. Xow she is a constant nagger, ill tempered, gossipy and a (rouble maker even among her own friends. I earned ••nough to make a decent living, and while wo didn't always have all the luxuries, neither have we been financially too bad off. I'm just an average man. "In some ways Clara has been a good mother, but as our differences grew, she attempted to alienate my own children from me. .Naturally women can't see the gradual changes that come over them. From a pleasant companion, Clara changed to a harpy. She didn't like my friends. She couldn't tolerate smoking in the living room. She made fun of the type of books and niagaxines I read She has belittled me in front of my sons and my friends. "She talked constantly about how little money I earned and ragged me because I wasn't getting ahead. In fact, life with Clara was unendurable, so I gave her good grounds for divorce. I am willing and happy to contribute alimony and for the first time in 15 years 1 feel I have my self-respect back." .And there was real bitterness and sorrow in this man's voice that bi.s marriage failed. But it's something for a woman to think over who can see that her marriage is failing. It may be worthwhile- to sit down and analyze why a marriage succeeded for five or six years and then gradually disintegrated. It's better to lake an honest look al a situation anil adjust it for mutual happiness than to UK thioiigh the bitterness and recriminations of a divorce. And the hard part of the divorce is (he burden that children have to bear, a story that is told too infrequent ly.

FOREST FIRE ARYIN RANCHER Largest Potato Seed Crop Is Submitted California's greatest acreage of potato seed in the history of the state has been submitted for examination to S. S. Rogers, of the California state department of agriculture, whoso responsibility it is to certify all seed. Kern county's 50,000 acres of certified seed potatoes depend upon the production of high quality certified seed, according to M. A. Lindsay, farm adviser. The report received from Mr. lingers may be obtained by all growers interested in the purchase of Irish potato seed, and is .available at L'(ill) M street, in Bakersfield. RETURN ENGAGEMENT — Jan Garber arvl his orchestra will play a popular demand return engagement at Union Avenue Ballroom, September C. OANGERJXTREME LOS PADRES AREA IS CLOSED TO HUNTERS Los Padres National Forest, except for Mount Pinos recreation area, will continue to be closed to entry until the end of the summer fire season. Deer hunting in the forest is thus limited to the. area open to public use, which extends from the north rim of the .Mount Pinos range to the Lockwood-O/ceiui road and west to the Cuyama river. Hunters are requested to inquire for ciimpfire permits, maps and information as to areas open in the forest at Chuchupate ranger station, 1) miles west of Lcbec. or al Cuyama station, LV> miles southwest of Maricopa. It i.s pointed out by I'nited States Forest Service officials that although it is now- lawful to hunt deer in game districts 3'i and 4'i, it is not lawful to go into the national forest areas closed by order of the regional forester under federal trespass regulations which provide for the closing of areas of high fire hazard. The great need for care is illustrated by several recent fires. August 17 a fire was started by a smoker a quarter mile below the Mount Pinos campground in the area open to the public. Forest Fire Guard Harold M. (Buck) Tifft promptly controlled the fire with the aid of five hunters and a forest service fire crew. Two other fires have been controlled in the last few days by the forest service near Santa Barbara. They burned 24,000 acres of range and watershed lands and required the service of hundreds of army troops to check the flames. These fires have seriously disrupted the training programs of the camps which furnished the troops, army officials state, and they have burned forage badly needed for cattle on the San Marcos ranch and Murphy ranch in Santa Yne/. valley. Both of the latter two started outside the national forest, but burned their way inside. Forest rangers ask all people entering mountain areas to become familiar with and observe the rules of safe woodsmanship in this period of excessively bad fire weather. The use of tracer bullets is unlawful in forest lauds, and hunters are asked to avoid their use in the interest of fire control and their own safety. Local Man Has Coin Issued in 1795 A dollar saved is a dollar earned, hut a. dollar saved for posterity is one in the possession of Lee Ryan for it is a coin dated 179H. The United States mint first began to issue dollars in 1794 and the 1795 issue is now rare, for few persons saved their dollars and the coins of that year's issue are now mostly in coin collections. Mr. Ryan recived the historical coin as a gift in Spokane, Wash., when he happened to mention that he was married on the fifth day r£ the fifth month of 191H. His anniversary gift was the dollar with the date also ending in "5." giiiiiiaiiiiiiHiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiiiDiiiiiiiiiiiiDiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiiiDiiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiiiDinig RE-OPENING MONDAY September 4 UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT Busy Bee Cafe [ 1515 Twenty-first Street URUAKFAST LUNCH DINNER Open 5 A.
