Workers, Employers Share Insurance Cost EDITOR'S NOTE—This In the m-ven- te^nth in a Brrif;s of nrtit-lrn explain- In^ fndeial old-age and survivors in- mrnnce laws. "What Docs It Cost? Who Fays for It?" Workers and their employers share the cost of old-age and survivors Insurance. The worker pays a tax on wages he receives. The employer pays a tax on his pay roil. At present the tax rate for the \vodter is one cent on each dollar of his wages. The worker's tax Is taken out of his pay by his employer who sends It to the government at the end of thef calendar quarter. If he has more than one employer, It may be found, at the end of the year, that the worker has paid taxes on more than a total of $3000. He may, in that case obtain from -the Bureau of Internal Revenue a refund of taxes paid on any amount over $3000. For further information call or write the Bakersfield office of the Social Security Board located at 'J09 Professional building, Bakcrsfield.

W TWiOXO -CttlMMA Gardner Officer Tells of Escaping Nazis in Europe TAFT, Sept. 13.—Undergoing experience that would make a movie scenario based on them seem unreal, First Lieutenant Frank J. Kirkland, a veteran of the European air war now attending the instructor's school at Gardner Field, a pilot school (basic) in the A. A. F, Training Command, near Taft, lived an exciting adventure in the few weeks he spent in German-held Yugoslavia. Lieutenant Klrklund was with the Second Bomb Group based in Italy when his Flying Fortress, "She Husta," was shot down over Yugoslavia by a rocket-carrying ME-109. Prior to that flight, he and his squadron had been the first ones over the Anzio beachhead, and the first to drop their eggs on the famous Monte Casslno abbey. He wears the Air Medal with two Oak Loaf Clusters, the Purple Heart and the Caterpillar Club pin. Just before he balled out, Lieutenant Kirkland asked his ball turret gunner, a happy kid who hadn't begun to shave yet, how long it would take him to get out of the turret.. "I'm already out," answered the boy, adding, "If I don't get back to camp, draw my pay and pay off all my poker debts." • Lieutenant Kirkland remembered that boy and his cheerful rejoinder because they later found him dead, and it was clear that he had been hit and mortally wounded while still In the plane. He could have called for help before balling out, but that would have slowed the rest of the crew, Lieutenant Kirkland said. "That's the kind of guy who gets It over there," says Lieutenant Kirkland. Suffers Broken Leg All tho rest of the crew landed all right, although three of them, in- cluding Kirkland, suffered broken legs in the process. Questioned When Kirkland hit the ground, in hilly country, he dragged himself to a nearby, stone wall and was Immediately confronted by a rugged character who questioned him. "Germanic?" "Xo," answered Kirkland. "Englishca?" "Americana'" Kirkland's affirmative answer won the friendship of his questioner who was one of General Tito's Partisans. The Partisan helped him to a farmhouse where the rest of xhe crew had already found refuge.' In the meantime, a German squad which had witnessed the crash of the B-17 appeared on the scene, apparently intent upon capturing the survivors, but tho Partisans drove them off with machinegun fire. Then the Partisans and their American guests retired farther Into the hills. For two weeks Lieutenant Kirkland and his crew stayed in the hills and fought, as well as they could with their Injuries, alongside the Partisans. The Yanks further cemented Yugoslav-Yank friendship by giving them their shoes and warm sweaters. Then they left the Partisans in their successful attempt to get back to Allied-held territory. The finishing touch royale to his experience came to Lieutenant Kirkland after he had returned to the United States and had left an army hospital at Atlantic City bound for his wife and home at Dennison, Texas. The Greyhound bus driver was a good guy and he thought Kirkland's Etory was great, too, so when the bus reached Dennison, the driver ma.dc a slight detour, coming to a stup in front of the Kirkland home.
