Burtch Reports 78,500 Acres Will Be Bearing This Year to Bolster County Yield JJARVEST of Kern county's $6,000,000 cotton crop, greatest in the county's history, will be in full swing by September 15, with some desultory picking now in progress, Louis A. Burtch, agricultural commissioner, announced today. Last year the county's 47,800 acres of cotton land produced 60,000 bales of cotton valued at $3,709,187, with cotton seed valued at $743,610 additional. This year's crop, providing the weather continues favorably, will total between 90,000 and 100,000 bales from the county's 78,500 acres. In addition, Mr. Burtch estimates that cotton seed this year will add more than $800,000 to the $6,000,000 total. State Leading "I am informed by the California Cotton Co-operation Association that a national survey shows California leads the nation in percentage of normal cotton production this year," Mr. Burtch said. "California is expected to produce a cotton crop tot- alling 96 per cent of normal. Kern county's crop will excell normal production If the weatfler continues favorably and this means our production will be greater than 100 per cent of normal. The national average for all the states Is 72.3 while Oklahoma has the lowest or 48 pel- cent of normal. "I am Informed that there is a large Influx of Oklahoman farmers into the state and a migration of labor here," ho continued. Fine Harvests Concerning _ other crops of the county, Mr. Burtch said Kern farmers shipped a total of 1369 cars of produce during August. Of this total 1144 cjjirs were of grapes and the rest of miscellaneous fruits and vegetables. "We have "completed the harvest of our spring crop of potatoes also peaches, plums and apricots. We will be shipping grapes for a couple of months yet," the commissioner said. Union Cemetery !•'a NON-PROFIT CORPORATION, which meana that all Income goes Into th» Cemetery treasury.

Office at the Cemeterg Telephone 2237 STUBBS-BLISS ELECTION RESULTS WILL BE DETERMINED ON TUESDAY W HETHER or not Congressman Henry E. Stubbs of the Tenth district, which Includes Kern county, was re-elected In the primary of last Tuesday will remain unknown until next Tuesday when absentee ballots In the five counties of the district will be added to present 'totals. Latest tabulations of the district show Stubbs with a landslide majority on the Democratic ballot, but trailing George Bliss by approximately 5SO votes on the Republican ballot. If ab- sentee ballots should swing the lead to Stubbs, he will be reelected In the primary. In Kern county alone, there are more than 800 absentee ballots. Santa Barbara county has an equal number and Tulare, San Luis Oblspo and Ventura counties have several hundred. How many of them are Republican ballots will remain unknown until the count next Tuesday. And the division of the absentee ballots between Bliss and Stubbs Is an even more unanswerable question.

W. Unfrncl, 1S22 M street, today was under investigation by Bakcrsflcld police COMETIMES regarded as more or O less a nuisance and useless as far as practicality Is concerned, the matter of recording marriages, births, sickness and deaths Is far more Important than the average person realizes. The data obtained by tho department of health In a city or county has a vital Influence throughout the life of tho individual who Is the subject of It, although he may know of but a few Instances where this becomes apparent. This Is shown In the discussion on this subject In this month's -Kern County Health Bulletin, prepared by the county health department. Tho article follows. The proper recording of births, marriages, sickness and deaths Is more Important than most persons realize until perhaps sometime dur- j ing their lives they are required to give proof of such vital information: and especially, If no record has been kept. Ilogcrs Quoted Will Kogers experienced considerable Inconvenience In 1926 when be went abroad for the first time; his birth had never been recorded and It was necessary for him to prove the information which would have been recorded on a birth certificate hud one been made out at the time he was born. He Is quoted as having exclaimed: "When you see a boy running around with pants on, or without them for that matter, it is pretty good proof he had been born!" Afterward, he added thoughtfully, "But It does not prove when, where at, nor who to." The proof of "where at," or the place one Is born, is most Important, as It Is the means of establishing one's citizenship. If one should leave his country without having his birth recorded he would find it impossible to re-enter until he could establish the fact that he was a citizen; this would probably cause considerable delay and expense. Proof of the date of birth is required throughout the life of the child and adult; It may b'e required to establish the child's age for attendance at public schools; proof of age Is required by child labor laws before n child can go to work; practically all states have an age limit below which children cannot drive an automobile; sometimes It Is necessary for persons to prove that they are old enough to vote, to marry, to enter civil service, to be exempt from military service, or to obtain old age benefits. Tho registration of births shown whore babies are and makes It possible for tho department of public health to observe births In the com. munlty and extend protection in so far as is possible. The use of marriage registration Is largely to protect the home and family. It furnishes reliable evidence upon which to base the legitimacy of children and the dower rights of women. Marriage statistics are of interest because of tho information they give regarding the social life of the people and the establishment of families nnd households, and because of the relation of marriages to population growth through their Influence on the birth rate. Disease Reports In public health administration, the reporting of cases of reportable disease serves several purposes. The communicable disease reports show the occurrence of rases which constitute foci from which tho disease may spread to others, as In scarlet fever, typhoid fever and tuberculosis, and makes it possible to take proper precautions to protect the family of the patient, as well as contacts outside the household, and the community at large. In some diseases, as In diphtheria, ophthalmia noonator- urn, tuberculosis and syphlllls, the reporting of these diseases often makes It possible to sou that tho sick receive proper or adequate treatment. In diseases which nro not communicable. HW!I .MM those duo to occupation or environment, reported cases show the location of conditions which are causing Illness or Injury and makes It possible to remedy faulty conditions, so that oU.-ers may not be similarly Injured. In certain diseases of which the cause or means of spread is unknown, case reports show their geographic distribution and varying prevalence and the conditions under which cases occur and prove of great value. In attempts to ascertain the causes and moans of spread of the-.. diseases. Reports of tho occurrence of disease are necessary to show the need of certain sanitary measures and to contro and check the efficiency of such measures when put Into operation as for instance, the need for and value of a sanatorium for persons 111 with tuberculosis; or the need for and effectiveness of anti-mosquito work where malaria is prevalent; or the faults In water or milk stipplj or excreta disposal facilities where typhoid fever Is prevalent. Sickness reports, when recorded over a period of time and properly compiled, show the relutlvu prevalence of disease from year to year and under varying conditions and the effect of tho Introduction of public health meas ures and of sanitary works. Death Reports Death registration serves a num ber of highly important purposes; it Is useful in preventing and detecting crime through the restrictions placec upon the disposal of dead bodies it serves as evidence In the inherl tance of property and In the settle ment of life Insurance contracts ant policies; makes it possible to show by mathematical computations and statistical methods the extent and rate of change In population produced by deaths; the average duration of life and tho relative frequency with which the several causes produce death; and by comparison with birth statistics, .death statistics give useful Information regarding population Increase or decrease. Everyone should find out whether he has a birth certificate on file. Tho time, place and cause of death should be made a permanent record for both sentimental and legal reasons. Marriages should be registered. Cases of notifiable disease should bo reported and careful records kept. Vital statistics Include data on population, births, marriages, deaths, the occurrence of disease, and the conditions attending these events. Vital statistics relate to tho life histories of communities and pertain to those events which have to do with the origin, continuation, and termination of lives of the Inhabitants. Proper records of such vital data save annoyance, delay and Inconvenience at times when proof of such data is required. Proper use of such data enables health departments to save and prolong lives. -MINER KIILED- Highway Improvement to South to Provide for Additional Lane TO SPEND $294,000 Projects Inside, Outside City Will Be Handled as Single Job T1IDS on a $294,000 project for tho •*•* widening of Golden Stato highway will bo called as soon as specifications arc submitted to the stato highway commission, Harry A.
