Bakersfield ha'd the appearance of a hobo convention city, with every, male physiognomy clad In bristles, blond, black and brightest red. But In a few weeks these will be silken beards. "The first two weeks are the hardest," said Big Whisker Fred Nlghbert as he rallied his cohorts for Frontier Days. He confided to ah Inquiring reporter that he has determined upon mustache and muttonchops as the style most befitting the dignity of the Chief Whlskerlno. Another reason, he admitted, Is that there seems to be an "alkali spot" on his chin. Other men not so affected-are cultivating a wide variety of facial adornment. And reports from over the county Indicate that this favorite fall masculine sport Is not confined to locals as the sun rose on the first day of the $95 Whlskerlno championship contest. 1000 Acres of Brush Near Timber Zone Destroyed by Raging Mountain Blaze LEAVETOR Slock Shipped En Routo to 'Sacramento for Places ,. in State Fair Union Cemetery is a NON-1'BOFIT CORPORATION, which means that all income goes into the Cemetery treasury.

Holloway, a member, from "W. H. Anderson, chairman of the state committee. A1 the same time Mr. Anderson urged that guard be kept against any fur ther attempt to initiate the single tax In California. By a ruling of the State Supreme Court last week the title of the in I tlatlve measure to have appeared on the November ballot was declarec misleading and the measure was or dered stricken. * "Proponents of the measure state in the public press." Mr. Anderson wrote, "that another attempt wll be made at a future date to place the measure agiiln on the ballot. Kven though our organization In disbanding, wo urge all to k«e,p -watchful eye open to block any such attempt." Attorney Is Ordered to Determine Authority of Municipality SAY LAWS VIOLATED Use of Streets by Huge Vehicles Cause for Vigorous Protest TRRUCK routings through Bakers•*• field, subject of recurrent pleas for changes by citizens on much- traveled streets, received the attention of the city council last night, the council instructing the city attorney to determine what its egal power In the matter is. At- .orney Ed West, who was present o represent a petitioner for an en- ertalnmcnt permit, Introduced the rucking problem and volunteered to xsalst the city attorney. All-NIght Parking At the same time tho council Instructed the traffic department to report on tho extent of all-night parking of oil tanker trucks on city streets. Both reports will be made, n two weeks. Brundagc Lane has been designated by tho council as the official trucking route, but because of its roughness It Is not used. California avenuo residents have complained of the use of that street by trucks and although trucks arc banned from Twenty-fourth street, they are using It, Attorney AVest slated. Cross-Town Artery Councilman Alfred Slemon asked Lhat H street be made smoother and the city manager replied that he had suggested to tho city engineer that Bakersfield needs a north and south cross-town artery, H street being tho logical route. On the manager's request the city council instructed the clerk to call for bids on a road disk for which $1800 haa been budgeted. This machine Is Intended for leveling such corduroy surfaces as that of H street. Mr. Slomon asked that Us first use be on this street. Loses Music Fight C. O. Graham lost his application for a license to provide music for dancing and other entertainment at his Cafe Royal, 1001 Eighteenth street. He was represented by Attorney West. The petition has been the cause of a neighborhood dispute for several weeks, with Attorney Samuel Taylor representing protest- Ing residents. Tho license had been refused by the city manager upon an unfavorable report by Chief of Pollen R. B. Powers. Councilman Slemon, seconded by Councilman Boden, moved to uphold tho city manager in his decision, with Mayor Wilson concurring. Councilmen Hollers and Ka- mlnsk) voted no. Councilman Smith was absent. Qraham and Attorney West are considering further action. Award Contract The contract for building a siphon at Thirty-fourth street and East Side Canal was let to Oppermati & Company In a low bid of $D13C. The engineer asked for another week on identical bids of this com pany and Williams & Qreenough for tho construction of another siphon on Brink Drive, saying that tho two wore to settle which should get tho contract, but that they had not reported an agreement. Paul Newell headed a delegation from the committee which worked for passage of the plunge bonds at last week's election and thanked the council for Its support. The committee hopes to continue working on the plunges' behalf, he said. The council also passed a resolution thanking the recreation committee.. The, official count of the plungo vote was 3E>£9 yen, 3118 no. falling short of tho necessary two- thirds.
