The Chinese have been such Wonderful people in rescuing American fliers that 1 have an idea young Stutzman will be picked up — that even now he may be in the Chinese underground and on liis way back to America. This is my sincere hope. Many such pilots have eventually showed up behind their lines after varied periods of •* RO\VP Meets Countess After three weeks in Algiers. Staff Sergeant Raymond F. Rowe. whose wife lives here at 205 Stevens Drive, writes of an odd experience with a little, old and perfectly charming Italian countess who was living in a castle in Italy more than 1000 years old. Throughout heavy bombardments she had remained in her home tending wounded soldiers and feeding them in her kitchen, where she had her only fire for warmth and food. Xot one bomb hit her castle. Now, she told Rowe, she plans to build a little shrine to commemorate the kindness of God. * Sergeant Rowe is an ordnance expert with his outfit and, as an expert infantryman, he knows how to use everything from a i service pistol to a heavy mortar. He made the .lump from buck private to staff sergeant in one leap. Ed Pettigrew Edward Pettigrew, a favorite nephew of Mrs. Mona Butcher of this city, has been reported wounded while serving with General Patton's lank corps somewhere in Franco. We hope his recovery will be as rapid as everything else in the tank corps. Frank Tomlinson lieutenant Frank TO. Tomlinson. fion of Mr. and Mrs. H. R. Tomlinson, was graduated from K. C. V. 11. S. and Bakersfield Junior College. He was with the Minter Field band before going to officers' training school at Miami, Fla., where he was graduated and attached to the ground force as an officer. Always wanting to be a flier, he was greatly disappointed to find that he could not be ac- tepted due to his height, but when the government removed this re- ntriction he immediately applied ngain and received his training as a flying lieutenant, graduating Ifrom Eagle Pass, Texas, where he also received the "expert" gunnery medal for aerial gunnery. He •was assigned to Randolph Field for further instruction and then went to Foster Field. Texas, as an Instructor in advanced flying and aerial gunnery. " Lieutenant Tomlinson is one of the several Bakersfield boys with the Fifteenth Air Force in Italy. He is flying a P-51-C and has received an Air Medal and two Oak Leaf Clusters.

Kern Grape Shippers Asked to Bid on Surplus Crop Kern county vintners and fresh grape shippers have been asked to bid on surplus raisin variety grapes and Zante currants, which will not be needed to meet government demands, the Commodity Credit Corporation announced today. Invitations to bid stated that Mus- cats, Sultanas and Thompson seedless will be offered, although there was no announcement on the number of tons to be released. The sales will be made in two- week periods to cover the harvest season, with the bids for the first period due by Friday night. Kern grape shippers, growers and vintners as yet have no opinion on how the release of these grapes for bidding will affect the grape market in the county. "Confusing Growers" The announcement was greeted by charges from William J. Cecil, manager of the California Grape Growers and Shippers Association, that the government's grape policy was "confusing the growers" and that It would cause the, growers to lone money invested in needless equipment. "We've been told continuously that the government must have all the raisin variety grapes for raisins," Cecil said. "We've asked that the War Food Administration work out an equation so that growers could raise all that was heeded of their crop for raisins and then could sell the rest of their crop to the wineries, which are paying top prices for raisin grapes." "But first we had the announcement that the government had sold some 'sugared' raisins to the wineries, but that the government needs were as great as ever. The next day we were informed that bids were to be accepted on a couple of million pounds of raisins which weren't needed, and now this additional supply is to be added to the market. The net result will be that a lot of drying equipment, which the growers bought when they were told they had to dry all their raisin grapes, will go unused. Furthermore, there'll be a glut on the market and the wineries will drop the price on grapes," Cecil declared. Potato growers throughout Kern county were pleased today \yilh the announcement recently made of increased ceiling prices. In effect at 12:01 a. m. Friday was the new ceiling price on potatoes with an increase of :!0 cents a 100 pounds in the county shipping point ceiling price of potatoes produced in southern California, it was announced today by the Office of Price Administration. This order now places Kern county on a parity with the .Stockton area. Sid B. Carnine. manager of the Kern County Potato Growers Association, reported that the Kern growers have representatives in Washington working for the release of these new prices. The new f. o. b. ceiling of $2.liO a bushel applies in Kern, San Luis Obispo, and San Bernadino counties, and southern California. It will result in a boost of about a half cent in retail prices, the OPA said. Chamber Slates New Service for Farmers At a special meeting of the directorate of the Kern County Chamber of Commerce in Hotel El Tejon, members voted to establish an "investigation service," fashioned along lines of a city's "better business bureau," for Kern county farmers. The group will study open contracts, labor problems, and contracts involving all crops, and will include legal study and counsel. A special committee, comprised of members of the legislative and finance committee of the Kern County Chamber of Commerce, will meet to investigate and study proposed contracts, proposals and labor projects presented to them by farmers from throughout the county. A. B. Newby of Taft is chairman of the group, and other members include D. C. Shannon, Attorney Oran Palmer, Harry Hopkins and A. Li. Trowbridge. President Charles P. Lake presided at the session which followed a general meeting of the directorate and guests. Voters Registration Meet Slated Tuesday Mrs. B. C. Enyart today announced a community meeting of women and women's groups interested in furthering the registration of voters for the November election.

RETIREMENT PLAN TOLD ATMEET DISTRICT FACULTIES GATHER AT J. C. Explanation of the newly adopted statewide teacher retirement plan received major attention yesterday morning during the first district- wide faculty meeting, which signalled the official opening of the new school term for 210 teachers and administrators of the Kern County Union High School District. Held in room 117 of the Bakersfield Junior College building at !l a. m., the meeting was conducted by Dr. Thomas I*. Nelson, district superintendent, who extended a greeting to all new and returning teachers in the district. Explaining that the first district-wide faculty meeting of the year not only provided opportunity for all to meet the new teachers, but also an opportunity for the factulty to renew acquaintance with the" president of the board of trustees. Doctor Nelson introduced T. N. Harvey, board president, who welcomed the teachers and administrators on the eve of the new term. "We want to work with you and you want to work with us." said Mr. Harvey, in expressing the philosophy of full mutual co-operntiiin for the school year ahead. Following the introduction of more than 30 new teachers in the district, many of whom are taking the places of those who resigned during the j spring and summer or who are on i leave. Doctor Nelson discussed briefly improvements on the campus at Bakersfield High School. Several i of the "hot. dog" stands have been ] removed and a large parking area ! constructed. Thirteenth street between F and G street is now being converted into a lawn as an extension to Elm Grove Park, following action taken by the city council. | In the effort to present to the i teachers a clear-cut explanation and ! brief history of the new teacher retirement plan adopted this summer at a special session of the State Legislature, Dr. Nelson introduced Roy Cloud, executive secretary of the California Teachers' Association, which organization has long taken an interest in the improvement of the teachers' retirement plan. Mr. Cloud referred to the fact that the first state teacher retirement plan was adopted in California in 1913, providing $500 per year upon retirement. This was revised in 1935 to allow $GOO per year. When the number applying for retirement jumped from an average of 208 per year to fiOO and 700 annually, the demands upon the retirement funds were too great. Plan Now Effective Although the governor vetoed the retirement legislation presented to him for signature early this summer, he appointed a special committee to propose the most sound plan that could be devised and agreed upon. The resultant plan was passed in a special session of the Legislature this summer and is now effective. The state, according to Mr. Cloud, is to provide funds which will be matched with retirement payments of teachers. The plan is based around a supposed beginning age of 22 and a retirement age of 63. Although the amount received annually upon retirement will depend upon several factors, such as age, present and future salary, and other considerations including the number of years of teaching, the amount in many cases would nearly double the $600 per year retirement income which was provided by the legislation in 1935. The mechanics of the plan and a warning that the 10 payments during the coming school year for retirement will be considerably increased was sounded by Theron L. McCuen, district business manager, following Mr. Cloud's address. Mr. Cloud included in his talk a plea for the passage of amendment No. 9 which would provide for more funds for elementary education. Doctor Nelson discussed highlights of the annual statistical report of the district superintendent, copies of which had been given to all teachers and administrators. Budgetary items, enrollment trends and teacher loads for last year and several previous years were indicated in the report. An announcement of the annual faculty men's stag party, to be held September 9 was made by Milton Perkins, chairman of the event. Following an announcement of the faculty meetings to be held in the Individual schools of the district, the teachers left for meetings and the assignments given them for registration held in the schools yesterday afternoon.

Penicillin, wonder drug of modern science, is now available in small quantities for the use of private physicians from the stock on hand at Kern General Hospital, it was announced today from the Kern county public health department. Dr. Myrnie Glfford, assistant in the department, said that good results have been obtained from the use of the drug in cases treated at Kern General Hospital and by private physicians.

Miracle Cures Doctor Gifford said penicillin has produced remarkable results In the treatment of gonorrhea, bringing about cures in 24 hours where previously weeks of treatment were necessary. It Is also used now in treatment of syphilis. It has also proved [^.rtlcularly effective in cases of septieernia, , menlnogorcus infections, osleomyeli- ; tis (infection of the bone), celluitis \ (infection of skin), arthritis, aetino- mycosls.
