LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26, 1936 PAGES 7 TO 14 STUBBS AND TURNER IN SMASHING VICTORIES * Electors of Bakersfield Fail to Pass Plunge Bond Issue -BOND issue- Majority of Voters Here in Favor of Project Despite Failure TWO-THIRDS NEEDED Unofficial Tabulation of 64 of 68 Precincts in • . City Is Recorded pLUNGE bonds for $98,500 failed * of. passage by 859 votes yester- •day In a tabulation complete for 64 of the city's 68 precincts. Needing a two-thirds favorable vote, the bond issue for construction of three large city park swimming pools failed despite strenuous efforts In its behalf by the Bakersfield Coordinating Council and the P. T. A. Council. Fulls by 859 A majority of voters In the 64 precincts favored the .plunge construction, the ballots totaling 33G5 In favor to 2968 opposed. This was 859 short of the needed two-thirds, or 4214, however. No organized opposition was work- Ing against the bonds' passage. Proponents felt today that endorsement was refused not to the plunges themselves but to the method of financing. The city has a large cash balance In Us treasury and many voters apparently believed the plunges could be financed without bonded Indebtedness, In the supporters' opinion. The vote In nearly all precincts-was a majority In favor, but lacking two-thirds. Only a few ecattered precincts • gave the two- thirds' endorsement. Plunges Closed The plunges which had been proposed were to replace three In Keale, Central and Jefferson Parks which city health officials have kept closed for two years because of lack of provision for adequate sanlta tion. Each was to be 105 feet long und 45 feet wide, carrying a peak load of 150 bathers. The pools as designed would contain 177,000 gallons of water each, this being con etantly filtered und chlorinated. With so wide a margin ngalnst tho bond Issue, counting of the ad dttlonal four precincts by the county clerk today would not affect •the bonds' defeat as indicated In 64 precincts. < » » .Haggin Heirs Get Share of Estate Two Bakersfield men, Louis L. llaggln, Jr., and William II.
