HOUSE RENTS Editor The Callfornlan: Wo Iiko to think of BakersfleKl as a progressive city, but when people como here to live, they can find neither suitable houses or apartments within their incomes. Tho rents hero are too high for the accommodations offered and salaries do not match the demands of houso and apartment owners. Dingy, dark, unattractive rooms, houses that are shabby and miserably furnished—these are all that tho renter can find at sky high prices. I havo a good Job here, but T -am returning south whore rents aro cheaper and living conditions better. My decision will probably not affect tho future of Bakersfield, but there must bo many more like me who prefer fairly decent living quarters within. their income. J. S.

Please explain how the radio beam works to keep a pilot of an airplane on his course.—C, E. H. A. It Is a series of signals sent from an airport which aids in keeping tho pilot on his course. "Wearing earphones the pilot listens to the signals which are the two code letters A (dot dash) and N (dash dot), if the pilot Is a little off his course to one Hide the A signal will predominate in signal strength. If he is a little off to tho other, ho will hear tho N signal more distinctly. If ha Is exactly on his course the signals will merge Into one long dash. Therefore, without even glancing at beacon light ahead, or if poor vial- billly obstructs It altogether,^™ may follow a direct course hy fifing hl« plane so that at all times tho long dftah predominates tn his earphones.
