JIM DAY <Wedne»d«y, September 6, 1944) ^ £ v . -..: = !• V-...": ?•"•,;' -.'. .:. .*, -. V ' " •• I Lee Rogers * Some time back I had a little story about Marvin Hort of this city, and how he has made good with Pan-American. Now I have another about Lee Rogers, a young Pan-American pilot flying regularly from Rio de Janeiro to Belen, on the mouth of the Amazon, a 1500-mile trip. Lee, who went to school here, Including junior college, and who was "soloed" originally at the Kern County Airport by Roy Pembcrton, took the Pan-American air ferries course to fly planes to Africa and the near east and then was made co-pilot of a DC-3 transport after three months of preliminary training in a ground school. These DC-3s are the same as the mainliners we know out here or the army's C-47s. They have four in the crew, including the co-pilot, steward, radio operator. In Air 1600 Hours Lee has been with the system since February, 1942, and he is making good, just as did Marvin Hort. Rogers has had about 1600 hours in the air to date. Some bad storms blow down off the Andean ranges, Lee told me while he was here last week on a short vacation. * Wedding Present How Is this for a wedding present^ First Lieutenant Monroe "Speed" Homer of this city mar- tried a lovely nurse not long ago at Salinas Field. Just after hia marriage he was promoted to the rank of captain and his wife to a first lieutenant. Captain Homer is stationed at Santa Maria. You'll remember him and Tommy Harper and Carroll Knott, three Bakersfield boys, all fine fighter pilots who made good in Europe and are now training youngsters in this country. Congratulations to Captain Homer and best wishes for his happiness. Marian McFarland Son of Mrs. Diana C. McFarland, Lieutenant Harlan L. McFarland has been home for a leave this week from Rapid City, S. D., where he is a pilot of a B-17. Milton Thompson Lieutenant Milton H. Thompson, recently commissioned from the ranks for his excellent service Kith the tank corps in Italy and •who is remembered here as a junior college student while he lived with the R. W. Loudons, writes in part as follows: "You may have heard of the One Hundredth Battalion. It's an outfit composed of boys of Japanese descent. There is another similar group over here now. The division commander called the Japanese boys the best in the division. It has a record to be proud of and fighting men over here have plenty of respect for them. . . , Had a rest in Rome. ... I didn't see as much of Rome as I should have, but I walked until I got tired of it. Didn't get to St. Paul's Cathedral or the Catacombs. The city surprised me. Naples was largely a poverty stricken and run-down sort of a place and I suppose I expected Rome to be much the same. It was quite different. We had a pretty swell place to stay so I didn't hang around the main part of the city very much." Vaughn J. FarisM In a delayed report from the Fifteenth Air Force in Italy I learn that Vaughn J. Fariss, 24, 1908 East California avenue, has been promoted to master sergeant. He Is a line chief for a Liberator outfit. Fariss was graduated from the airplane mechanics school at Sheppard Field, Texas, and has been in the service since July 22, 1942. Hicks Boys Harry J. Hicks, another son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Hicks, is now in the army and is a twin brother of Ralph who served in the Port Moresby district, Australia. Four other Hicks brothers have been in the service, Warren L.., honorably discharged medically after services in Hawaii at the time of the invasion; Ralph W., also out on a medical discharge; Fred, who •erved in England as an aviation is Xpert before the war and was with the Marshall islands invasion and Lieutenant Waiter, now teaching radio at Gardner Field. Learned from a scout today that John Stockton, of this city, is a lieutenant of police in charge of plant protection at Lockheed's Burbank plant where Rene Gardiner and Wallace Wear are also employed.

"Very little fuel is burned here until November 1, except in industrial use." said Mr. Wilt, who reported that the coal conservation program is not applicable in this area. "The fuel conservation program only applies to buildings larger than four-room flats and is mainly concerned with the larger industrial consumers. Equipment properly adjusted adds to the amount of heat to be obtained and our program will be directed mainly to this end here. "Standard burners are used for the most part heYe and with a little help from efficiency engineers, we can assist in the fuel conservation program." The new co-ordinator will appoint committees to assist in the work, seeking technical engineering aid in the problem.

"HERE WE GO AGAIN!"—One of the surest harbingers of the opening of school is the steady stream of students transporting textbooks from the bookroom to the classroom. Shown carrying algebra and geometry texts to the mathematlc classes taught by Miss Margaret Meyer at Bakersfield High School are, left to right. Seniors Bill Greenlee and Gerald Maltby. Hundreds of textbooks are required and reconditioned during the summer under supervision of P. C. Cooke, who is in charge of the textbook division of Bakersfield High School. New textbooks also are distributed under Mr. Cooke's direction. Per Cent of High School Students Get Work Permits Approximately f» per cent of the boys and girls enrolled in Bakersfield and East Bakersfield high schools have obtained work permits for after-school or week-end employment, a survey revealed today. Fewer work permits were granted to grammar school boys and girls with only 5 per cent of Bakersfield elementary school pupils obtaining work permits, it was ascertained in study of statistics. Big temptation to high school youths is to remain out of school because of high wages being paid both in agriculture and oil industries, attendance supervisors declare, who say that California's compulsory school laws are difficult to enforce with a large floating- population. "Parents are not always co-operative in getting children back to school," said Dan Heed, director of attendance at East Bukersfield High School," particularly in families recently from the middlewest where state laws require students to attend classes only through the eighth grade. Agriculture Problems "Employers, particularly in agriculture labor, are not always cooperative because they are chiefly interested in getting in a crop. If a youth appears and asserts he is 18 years of age, often no investigation is made or proof asked. "We have to go out and beat the brush to get some, of the boys and girls of high school age into classes. Where the family pleads extreme financial need, we do grant the full- time work permits that carry also the obligation of four hours a week school attendance. California school laws require boys and girls to attend school until they are 18 and they are not permitted to work or attend school in excess of 48 hours a week. "Ambitious boys and girls who carry a full school schedule and work after school and on week-end can manage without physical impairment if they stick to the law and do not work more than 48 hours in any week Including their school attendance" said Mr. Reed. Continuation Students "Sometimes work permits are granted to continuation students (those required to attend school only four houra a week), and we find that after employment is terminated they do not always return to school. This Is the potential field for juvenile delinquency that we are trying to curb. Employers are required by law to turn in such work permits within five days after the minor leaves work, but we find that frequently this Is not done. 1 "We can only ask for fuller co-operation on the part of employers In an effort to curb Juvenile delinquency and to fulfill the requirements of the state laws. Cannot Work After 10 p. m. "We also call attention to the fact that minors' cannot be employed after 10 p. m. or before 5 a. m. "We find that when an employer cornea to the high school seeking student help handled through I. E. Lane, very few difficulties arise. Miss Lola Smith handles the employment for the girls." Mr. Reed estimated that probably 600 work permits were granted during- the last school year. Many nf the permits were given to boys and girls only temporarily residents in for the the community, being- members of the migratory workers' families. Jack N. Hill, director of attendance at Bakersfield High School, stikl that approximately 400 work permits have already been issued school year and that while 50 work permits have been granted for continuation classes, enrollment in this group will probally total 200 before the end of the school year. "Much visual education is given in these continuation classes for we are dealing with older boys and girls, some of whom are 16 or 17 and who have only completed the seventh or eighth grade and are working all but the required four hours that we have them, in some instances, the pictures of vocational opportunities and the general education given has encouraged some to come back and enroll in regular classes. "It is my opinion that there are probably less than 100 boys and girls in the district that are now working without work permits and these are usually in "floater" families and hard to find. High raying Jobs "There is some reluctance on the part of older boys to give up high- paying jobs and return to classes, particularly when they have been earning $1 an hour. Some of the boys are eager to accumulate cash before entering the service. "Boys and girls of 13, 14 and 15 years are employed on Saturdays and after school as messengers, stock room workers and for similar work. Some of course work with their parents in the fields. C. \V. Morton, director of attendance In the county rural schools, said that seldom is a full-time work permit given to anyone, but hundreds of work permits for part-time employment are granted. The part-time work permits from elementary rural schools are issued to boys and girls who work with their parents in the fields. The "rare" work permit, one of which was granted recently, was to a boy close to IS years who had not yet completed the fourth grade. "School principals are able to grant the aftrr-school and Saturday work permits," said Mr. Morton, who said that he visits the agricultural area also for this purpose. High schools generally adjust schools programs to permit students to work three hours a day in many instances, the five hours required school studies being arranged for the morning hours, or afternoon, depending upon the hours of employment. School supervisors were generally agreed that Mexican youths are more prone to escape the school routines than others. Elementary School Permits Miss Betty Gould, director of attendance In the Bakersfield city schools, reported that 784 work permits were granted to elementary school boys and girls during the summer and that approximately 300 to 400 work permits for after-school and week-end employment will be given during the opening weeks of school. "Most of these work permits are for work in agriculture and many of them will work with their parents in the fields," said Miss Gould. "There are about 60 to 75 work permits for out-of-school hours Issued to minors who work as paper carriers, do odd jobs and messenger work.

Although figures were not available late to- dav, Bakersfield citv schools *• •• were expected to enroll 7500 boys and girls before the end of the week. Kern County Union High School district was well on its wny to rounding out anticipated enrollment figures as new registrations were received yesterday and today.

EXAMINATIONS REVEAL HEALTHY GROUP ENROLLED With fewer defects found this year than in the past, and with postures seemingly better, the incoming students of Bakersfield High School are making a bid as the healthiest group ever to enroll, it wan announced following the physical examination of OSS boys and 397 girls during- the registration conducted Friday afternoon through Monday. Arranged under the direction of Mrs. Lenora Anderson, school nurse, the incoming girls were given physical checkups in the east wing of the library building by Doctors Sophie Goldman, Juliet Thornber and Violet Martin.

Special Classen As a result of the tests just given. 50 girls were assigned to special physical education classes to help overcome minor difficulties, which, if not corrected now, might become more serious later. "Emphasis is to be placed on the correction of defects found," Mrs. Anderson stated. "Letters will be sent to parents in the near future regarding defects noted. It is hoped that parents will consult their family physicians regarding recommendations made," she said, Members of the Parent-Teacher Association who assisted in the physical examinations during registration included Mrs. J.
