10 THE liAKGRSKIELD CALIFORNIAN, MONDAY, AUGUST 2<l, 1930 POLITICAL AOVEftTlftCMENT POLITICAL AOVCRTIftEMENT HARRY G. SMITH Candidate for Supervisor From the Fifth District Honest Competent Aggressive Fair and Impartial Consideration of the Masses as Well as the Few Waste and Extravagance Versus Honest Government Taxation for tho proper expenditure of government is a burden. But » burden that must be borne. Taxation properly Imposed Is a necessary evil. Hut taxation to support government waste and extravagance Is an unnecessary evil. Tho taxpayers who provide most of the capital which supports the city and county governments want to bo confident their money in not spent thusly. Speaking as a taxpayer In our community for twenty-three years and deeply Interested In all civic Improvement and progress of Bnk- crsfleld and Kern County, I fee) that I am qualified for this Important office as a successful bunlncBM man with long yearn of experience. For the past four years OH a member of our City Council, I have co-operated with those who have accomplished Improvements necessary for the welfare of our community at lowest cost possible. I sUnd on I lie platform of hones!, efficient, economical loveniinciit admlniHtrntlon. I urn In favor of home-owned Industry. I approve the MvlminhiK pool bonds.

YOUR SUPPORT WILL BE APPRECIATED For Transportation to the Polls, Telephone 2547-J or 5314-W Attention! Republican Voters Southern California Republicans have just taken several straw ballots. The Tenth District poll shows a dangerous possibility that Mr. Stubbs (who has filed on the Republican as well as (lie Democratic ticket) may "steal" the Republican nomination. This situation calls for immediate action upon the part of all Republicans. Personalities and personal desires must be submerged for Party welfare. Governor Landon's rapidly developing campaign must not be hampered in this District by the lack of a Republican Congressional candidate on the November ballot. The Tenth District poll showed that George R. Bliss was the high man among the Republican candidates for Congress. In a fine display of sportsmanship and Party loyalty, Waller L. Maas, Jr., has announced his withtlrawiil as a candidate in favor of the high man, Hliss. Although his name must appear on (lie ballot, he is asking his supporters to vote for Hliss, so that a New Dealer will not "steal" the Republican nomination. The Tulare County Assembly bus endorsed Rliss, for the same reason. Other Republican organi/a- tions are meeting to consider the same action, believing lhat support must be thrown to the high man. If you are a Republican -if you arc interested in helping Landon and Knox in November — join with these other groups and throw your strength and vote to George R. Bliss. George R.

Dr. Van Meter Gives Special Attention lo Artificial Teeth plates made In our own laboratory. Robert W. Rodman, chairman of f! convention's, secllon on commercial Interests, said scientists are working harder to mako once repulsive drugs tasty than they aro to develop new medicine. Orange peel, o run so flowers and citric acid, ho said, are among the sweet smelling substances being studied. "Tremendous strides have boon been made In the development of special syrups which, when prescribed by the physician as part of a prescription, adequately cover tho taste of bitter or nauseous drugs," Rodman suld. "This enables tho pharmacist to dispense an agreeably flavored medl- cluo instead of the bitter doso which people took years ago." Cough medicines containing acrid ammonium chloride and ammonium carbonate now go down easy under tho Influence of cherry and cherry pit syrups, Rodman explained. "Man's conquest of disease does not end with the discovery of a new drug," Rodman said. "For Its wide uso will be handicapped as long as It Is disagreeable for the patient to take."

Germany Informed Franco H would nimedlntely declare an embargo on rms and airplane shipments to Kpiiln csplto recent tension over the search f a German cruiser by Spanish gov- rnment naval forces rfnd other Indents which tho .Reich considered nil-German. The move was a long step toward ffcctlng a concreto neutrality j>act, iroposed by tho French nnd sup- iorted by the Brltlah. Italy already las accepted, with certain resei-va- Ions. Rebels Give Warning As for tho slain French volunteers, he rebels warned that others who Ight for Madrid may expect the ame fate. That appeared a serious matter, Incc the question of permitting for- 'Ign volunteers to aid either side In he Spanish war has been raised repeatedly In tho neutrality nogotla- lons, particularly by Italy and Germany. Franco, however, officially disclaimed any governmental part in tho service of tho volunteers and ono spokesman, commenting on tho re- )orted executions, declared any French volunteer fighting In another country must run such "risks ofiwar."
