Father in First War It is interesting to mention as well that Rolla Grainger, father of the six sons, was in the first World War in the navy, which probably is responsible for a predisposition of his sons toward that branch of the service. The youngest boy Ray is now attending the Standard School. Charles Reeves v The written commendation of Brigadier-General C. W. Lawrence and Colonel Frank Kurtz, his commanding officer, has been attached permanently to the record of Captain Charles T. Reeves, of this city.

It was selected as the standard for the army. Captain Reeves was with Colonel Kurtz when they flew the Swoose into some of the greatest aerial adventures of this war, their story has been written in a best seller, "Queens Die Proudly." I am grateful to learn that Colonel Kurtz had sent a story I wrote about him in this column to his wife, Margo.

New Point Values Soajing More Blue Points Needed for Fruits Housewives who shopped wisely Saturday had the edge on housewives who went to stores today and found out for the first time that hlue point values had soared on canned fruits and hreathed a sigh of relief because point values were off' many other products. New point values were generally about double the former ones, but in some cases the increases were even better. For example a No. 2 can of tomatoes (IS ounces I, which used to cost 5 points, today required 20 points and the same-sized can of tomato juice was up from 0 to 20 points. Peaches, pears and pineapple, which were distinctly in the luxury class of rationed goods as far as points went, were on a new high point value of SO points for the average No. 2 cans. Pineapple juice went up from 25 to 50 points for a No. 2 can. Tomato catsup and chili sauce went up from SO to 50 points for a 14-ounce container. Point values of canned apples, applesauce, apricots, all varieties of berries, cherries, fruit cocktail and plums and prunes were nearly doubled. These point values arc higher, not because of a change in the supply picture of commodities remaining under rationing, but because of the removal from rationing of nearly all vegetables, special products and all fruit spreads, effective September 17, as requested by the War Food Administration, Price Administrator Chester Bowles said. Bakersfield stores, for the most part, tipped off shoppers on Saturday and a big business was done in canned fruits, tomatoes and catsup, it is reported. Kern Birth Rate Hits Ail-Time High 4006 Babies Born in County in 1943, Statistics Show Wartime production records of the stork in Kern county during 194!! has surpassed all previous infant deliveries in the public health history, it was reported today from the Kern county public health department, where statistics on the stork flights are kept. The stork apparently workefl the swing shift, too, as 400(1 live births were registered, an Increase of 10 per cent In the number of babies as compared to the records in 1942. It Is anticipated that this year the live birth* records will go even higher than 10 per cent increases, as 2000 babies were born during the first six months of 1944. The fathers of almost one-fourth of the babies that picked Kern for a birthplace in 1943 are serving in the armed forces. Considered good news along with the increases in infant births is that the infant mortality rate has dropped. The number of deaths of babies under 1 year of age per 100 live births declined from 49.4 in 1942 to 44.2 in 1943. This downward trend in the rate indicates fhat general social and sanitary conditions were good in the county in 1943. The infant mortality rate in Kern county; however, was higher than that for the rest of tho state as a whole, the state death rate being 34.6 in 1943.
