LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1936 PAGES 16 TO 22 KERN HORSE TRADER KILLED BY AUTOMOBILE Chamber of Commerce Is Leader in Action for Portion of Income Frontier Days Ushered Into City With Colorful Program Staged at Bakersfield Park STATE BENEFICIARY Congress May Be Urged to Restore Elk Hills to Public Domain A RESOLUTION asking the Call•"• fornla Legislature to transmit a portion of the revenues received by the state from the United States naval oil reserve leases on Elk Hills to the Kern county treasury • Is being prepared by the oil Industry committee of the Kern County Chamber of Commerce for submission to the directors In tho October meeting. The action was taken upon tho suggestion of R. L. Patterson, former state assemblyman, who has •prepared a report on the status of tho naval reserve leases. Huge Revenue Mr. Patterson suggested also that Congress be petitioned to amend tho •mineral leasing act to provide that revenues from naval petroleum reserves be distributed in the same manner as revenues from, public domain land. Between the act's adoption In 1920 and June, 1930, tho United States received $39,304,000 in revenues from the Elk Hills reserx'es, he said. He also asked that the chamber reaffirm its resolution of November 7, 1933, petitioning Congress to restore the government lands within naval petroleum reserve No.i 2 to the public domain, transferring jurisdiction from the secretary of the, navy to tho secretary of the interior.' • Mr. Patterson, said there were three primary alms of the 1933 resolution: First, to assure renewal of. tho leases'" within the reserve, thereby continuing on tho Kern tax rolls property assessed at $6,357,490, fitom which.$334,765-in taxes was collected in 1932. ;-\ ; Would Aid Kern Second, to make available to California and Kern county tho portion of revenues from public domain lands provided by the mineral leasing act of 1929. At present revenues from naval reserves are deposited in the United States treasury as miscel- • laneous receipt's. Third, to aid orderly production and conservation by giving the secretary of tho interior exclusive jurisdiction over the' reserve. . The first of these objectives was "met, in effect, Mr. Patterson said, on July G of this year when President Roosevelt signed a plan agreement for co-operative development of Un- reserve which provides that tho agreement shall continue in effect as long as oil can bo produced In pay- Ing quantities. This in effect extends the leases for tho life ot production, he pointed out. «->-* City Firemen Busy Throughout Night Throe alarms kept BakersfleM • flrenvn working at intervals throughout last night but failed to result in any fires of consequence.
