>• i u * f 4 B I T. r e EMOCRATS SEEK VOTE WEEK" DORRIS TO REQUEST ADOPTION OF PLAN Wiley C. Don-is. Bake»-sfield attorney, today announced that he would appear nefore the City Council to request adoption of a proclamation for a "Register-and-Vote Week" in Kern county. Tho announcement was made 1 "when offices of the Kern county Democratic committee were opened ii^ the Morgan building here. The committee, which includes •representatives of labor, business, industry and farming, has as secretary-treasurer, Mrs. Ruby Crain. ."We want a registration from every one of the 310 precincts in the county—whether the people want President Roosevelt or Governor Dcwey," Dorria said in outlining plant* for th.e campaign here. "The key point of a campaign, as we are planning it, is not the election of a candidate, but the expression of the people's wishes." He said he would ask the council to proclaim formally a week, during which all of Kern county's SX.OOii voters would be asked to register,' that a house-to-house canvass of Voters be made in the populated areas and that enlistment of the Boy Scouts, air raid wardens, women's clubs, labor organizations, farm groups, The plan he said, will not necessarily be designed to aid the re-election of President Roosevelt for n fourth term, but, instead, will be to register both Republicans and Democrats "so the people of Kern county will exercise their American privilege of voting." WHAT DO YOU THINK? ^^fmmmjfmm^jffjjfm^^fm ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^r^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^f (By BEKXICa UAKKtfilJL CH1PMAN) SON \Rimi;s son, Brent I^ce. was born to Mr. and Mrs. Roy T. Montgomery l*tt I T-iiula Vista Drive, on August -<> at Frcise's Maternity Homo. The Montgomery's have another son, Keither. ;j years of ape. Before long, possibly by November, we shall know the result of the conference at Dumbarton Oaks and learn, at leapt in outline, something of the official plans for future peace. R-it it is safe to say that no matter what organization shall be proposed, there \\\\\ be many voices raised In dissent, as there seem to be as many plans fur peace as there are people thinking about it—and their name Is legion. Vet the unanimity among all groups that some kind .of an international organization is desirable is a big step forward. Isolationism has become suspect, and fhe question now is not shnll we— but how will we—Join with other nations to maintain and preserve peace? -W« nre lerl to this attitude by the unfortunate history of the years since the world's last futile gesture toward collaboration* years in which we have done those things \vhich we ought not to have done, and left undone those thingH which we ought to have done. Now we make full confession of our errors, but it Is easy to see mistakes in retrospect. Hindsight is clear sight. And not only did we blunder but nil those Kuropean countries which so greatly desired peace committed in succession those egregious errors that hastened the war they dreaded with each fearful action, with each cowardly failure to act. Literary Rhieprintu The many books now current which deal with the peace to come, nil preface their blueprints for the future with a historical background of the last quarter of a century—and rightly HO. The future to be secure, must avoid the errors of the past, and the realization of those errors is the beginning of wisdom. Mr. Rumner AVelles, long associated with our slate department, has done a particularly enlightening job in his historical analysis which constitutes the first portion of his "Time for Decision." Much of what he tells was a part of his personal experience, all of it is a part of his knowledge. "Dreadful Ix>gir" Beginning with the ill-fated trip of President Wilson to Paris, and the emasculated Versailles treaty, he demonstrates the errors, step by step, the errors that led to other and worse errors. The story, ;IH he recounts it reads like an ancient (Jreek tragedy, each incident of timidity, and cupidity and aggression, paving the way with dreadful logic to another, greater in scale, until the whole world found itself involved in the meshes of Its own ineptitude, with only war the dreadful sword to cut the Gorilla n knot of international confusion. Mr. Welles" opening chapter Is entitled, "It might have been"— those saddest of all words. It might have been—that a good and durable peace could have been made after the last war, had it not been for the fears, the distrusts, the greed and the errors" Who else wants say ii Goodbye if these Face Powder Troubles? ffc» fac* powcfor you VM tail to giv« a , *v»n finish ? tho face you UM fall to §tay •n? i Dooi ffco foco powc/tr you*VM fail to Hay frosfc and fragrant ?

It might have been— if Communism hnd not become a' red herring dragged across the map of Kurope—if the German Republic hatl been assisted—1C Japan hnd been stopped in Mnn- churla—if Hitler had been stopped on the Rhine—if Mussolini had been stopped in Ethiopia—!f we had taken a different stand in the Spanish Civil AVar. If—if, a long history of Ifs that lead finally to catacyamic disaster. Now it seems that before long the world will have a second chance, a second opportunity to organize a method for peace. Second chances are rare—for nations as for individuals, and if this one be mishandled, it is doubtful if wo shall have another. Therefore now is the time for decision, says Mr. Welles. Now is not too soon—even, he fears, somewhat too late, as already national aims are taking shape, are growing set before an international plan is arrived at. Mr. Welles 1 Plan Ills ideas about n suitable plan are of interest, in that they differ in one respect from those of other writers on the subject, In the composition of the proposed Executive Council Mr. Welles hopes for regional spheres of mutual interest among nations with like geograph- Iral situation and economic problems, and these he visualizes as noting in concert as units for representation in a world organization. Ho it was who KO successfully furthered our better relations with other American republics and upon the regional understanding achieved in the western hemisphere, he bases his thesis for likn regional cu-opernUon among other groups of nations, who acknowledge a .similar interest. Those regional divisions lie would give representation on an executive council in the temporary world organization, along with the four great powers, thus affecting a compromise between those who look to the Allies to take entire re- sponbility for the peace and reconstruction, and those who demand that all nations, great and small, should be equally represented. The executive council, thus formed, should be charged with the settling of immediate disputes, with implementing the peace by means of a security and arms commission which .should deal with the de- j feated countries, and with the establishing of a permanent international organization. A world congress should also be set up. in which all nations, victors and vanquished alike, should eventually be members, and a World Court for the adjudication of disputes. Partition Germany These agencies should function, according to the writer, during the transition period which will lie between the ceasing of hostilities and the formation of the permanent international organization, and should In some way be fitted into the- permanent plan. His ideas for partitioning Germany Into three separate states, have caused Dorothy Thompson columns of rebuttal. When experts disagree, how are we to know? And whether he or she be right . . . only time can tell. But it is devoutly to be hoped, that when another L'5 years shall have passed, the world may not need to look sadly back, and say, "It might have been. If ... if they who had made the peace had only known enough—had only been brave enough, and cared enough, to make a peace that could have endured." DrCHESS "COMFORTABLE" NEW YORK, Sept. 4.

"Is There an Easy Way in \Vlileh a Worker Can Figure His Benefits?*" The exact amount of a worker's benefits cannot be determined until he retires or dies, but an approximate figure can be found. Take 40 per cent of the first $T>0 of the worker's average monthly pay. Then take 10 per cent of the rest of it and add these figures together. Take 1 per cent of that amount for each year in which he was paid $200 or more on jobs covered by the I;IAV. Add this to the total. The sum is L the worker's primary monthly benefit.
