(Monday. September 11. 1044) Colonel Harold E. Kofalil Just offhand I don't know where you'd find a record to beat this one made by a Kern county man, Colonel Harold E. Kofahl of Fellows, commanding officer of a fighter-bomber group, which outfit had, some weeks ago, completed 1500 combat missions and 14,000 sorties in one year's time. When last heard from Colonel Kofahl's pilots were engaged in disrupting German supply and communication systems and working in close support with the Allied ground ftfrces in northern Italy. Exceptional Record . Colonel Kofahl's group has destroyed more than 2500 enemy vehicles, in addition to damaging 2000 more. In addition'to knocking out of action hundreds of railway cars the group has destroyed 46 locomotives. Through primarily fighter-bombers, the fliers have shot clown 23 enemy aircraft and damaged 23 others. Marble Family First Lieutenant Clarence Marble, co-opilot instructor for B-24 Liberator!!, has returned to La- rodo, Texas, after visiting relatives. His brother, Sergeant Jack Marble, is in a large machine shop in northern England, work similar to that he did at Minter Field when he was stationed here. An- Bother brother, Aviation Cadet Edward H. Marble,, is finishing a preflight course at the Santa Ana army air base. „ Ix>o Neva I just learned today that there were a good many civilians in the D-0ay invasion of Normandy and they braved the samo dangers as the navy. These men were members of the army transport corps, operating tugs and small craft under army jurisdiction. Many of these tugs and small craft rendered exceptionally fine service, and many men were rescued through their alertness. Serving on one of them was Leo Neva, 1225 Nineteenth street, a chief steward. Loren Eeliols The toughest mission flown by First Lieutenant Loren Echols:, 28, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. *E. Echols, 135 Arvin street-, was that over oil refineries at Brux, Czechoslovakia, July. His group blasted Axis synthetic oil refineries there. Echols is a bombardier with a F4ylng Fortress outfit. He flew other missions over Ploesti, and aircraft factories in Austria. F. R. Brown According to a three-line delayed dispatch, Frederick R Brown, 26, of 1151 Pear street, was interviewed at Saipan by Sergeant Pat Surlinden, a combat correspondent for the marines in which Brown also serves. The substance of the interview was not reported. Name Oomitted The name of Mrs. Mary Gadd should have been mentioned in this column recently in connection with a story concerning Edward Gadd, her son. Pardon the oversight, please. On Buzz Bombs Here is a quotation from a letter written by an English woman, Jo Hinds of Beechurst, in Kent, a relative of the J. H. Thornbers of this city. It gives something of the feelings, in an English home, caused by the robot bombs: "I expect you are wondering if we are getting the flying bomb, or. doodle bug as it is commonly called. Yefi, we are getting our share, I think. We had 11 down in this parish but no fatal casualties; n. cracked skull was the worst. That was caused by a chest of drawers being thrown by' the blast onto a boy who was also thrown against a wall. They are horrid things. One finds oneself listening for the engine to stop. So far, George and I arc still sleeping in our beds upstairs, but an awful lot of people have started to sleep downstairs, but we feel that the downstairs windows a* about twice the size of the upstairs, and as most of the casualties have been caused by flying glass we might just as well be in the room with the smaller windows. We had one small pane of glass, but that was shrapnel from a gun. I hon- .e,ftly think the worst part has been the noise caused by the guns. You've never heard anything to equal it, and of course we get very tired as we had it night after night. I personally feel better if fcan see what's happening, but It is a bit difficult trying to lie In bed with every gun blazing and trying to hear if the engine of the doodle bug is still running. Also, when you can't see the thing it always sounds as if it Is going truly over the house, when nine times out of ten it isn't. At first, we did have one that came straight over the house, but I think the R. A. F. must have dealt with that one. I must say I was surprised to see how big they were. .,. I saw one coming down the other day and it honestly looked almost as big as a single-engined fighter plane. The fighters are the things that bring them down In fact, you had better look out if you hear machinegun fire!" V ' ' CARRIER PIGEON FOUND A carrier pfgeon, with a serial number of AU44F8680, was found In a Blimp hole in the Ten Section oil district, near Panama, at 9:30 this mornl*!r. according .to James Green, worker with the oil company. Mr. Green said that the tag with the serial nn-.nber i« mada of metal' and is attached to one leg, while • rubber tag it< attached to the other leg. 'nhe pigeon will be Kent in Panama un$I its rightful owner 'claims it. LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1944 PAGES 7 TO 12 WITH US TODAY Mrs. Olive Butler, Engadlne, Mich.

Bowman, son of Mrs. Edith Bowman, 710 Jackson street, was made in The September 9 issue of The Californian. Corporal Bowman, who serves with the marines and •who won several medals for sharp- shooting, was wounded in action. Recording to an, announcement of the navy department through As- rociated Press. Due to an error in reporting, the original information the statement was made that Corporal Bowman was dead. This Is not true, and the correction is now being made immediately upon learn|ng of the error. Corporal Bowman served with distinction and courage at Saipan and his friends here hope his recovery will be a speedy one. The Callfornlan deeply regrets the error and its consequences. Xews is supposed to be something different about the same thing. Here goes: It was hot yesterday, the day before, and the day before that. All in all it has been hot for six days with the people wondering if the OPA shouldn't do a little about the heat inflation as the weather bureau merely kept on reporting it. A case of more bureaucy. Yesterday while the Sunday roast was cooking, the thermometer said it was only 107 degrees while every cook in the kitchen knew it was a good 116 degrees. But this is news! Tomorrow it's going to be cooler. Maybe you didn't notice it, but today was cooler, too. It was only 102 degrees today and the weather man said that tomorrow it will be only 90 or 95 degrees. In fact it's apt to be chilly in the morning with a minimum of 60 degrees. Results of six days of steady heat has been a lot of figs getting ripe readily for the reaping, and the grapes sweetening swiftly on the vine, and the disposition of the average citizen slightly soured by the siege. COOLING BREEZES RELIEVE EXCESSIVE HEAT SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 11. UP)— The weather bureau predicted generally cooler weather for today and tomorrow after cooling breezes came up Sunday to relieve, over a great part of the state, the excessive heat of the preceding two days.

On the other hand, Los Angeles, which had sweltered in^the preceding few days, was down to 79, and at San FranclsCo It was only 61 Sunday, contrasted with 91 on Saturday.
