That impressed us out there in tho corn rows where master bedrooms were rather strange things. I'm often tempted to. wangle a look at their apartment Just to BOO how many "master bedrooms" they had while not trouplng. In our layout wb haven't 'ary ono.

DUMPING KITTENS Editor tho Californian: "Why must so-called civilized people dump their kittens in the suburbs?- My neighbors and I arc deluged with kittens regularly! In the middle of tho night one hears a forlorn wailing which announces theso unwanted cats! Next morning, our old mother cat brlnga tho hungry visitors to the back door to breakfast with her own numerous progeny. Two years of frenzied phoning the local Humane Society have resulted in Iho same procedure—a man's voice agrees to come got tho strays, but somehow no ono has ever arrived yot! Don't farmers want cats any moro? Tt seems to me these dumpers might at least ask at a farm first! Since the neighbors are mostly stern realists who maintain that the strays will leave 1C unfed long enough—most of tho cats leave for our place, and share our cats' food. That leaves her hungry, too. Cats aro expensive and extra cats aro an added burden which no sensible person wanlH to tolerate. What can bo dono about It? How have other readers of the Bakersflold Call- fornian solved this problem? How does ono give cats away? Did you over try it? Klttonlshly yours, S. P. H. M. Highland Park, Bakorsfield, Sopt. 1, 1H3C. ACCIDENTAL SHOOTINGS Kdltor Tho Callfornian: I got so burned up every time I pick up a paper and read of some accidental shooting of a young child. What arn parents thinking of. allowing a child with a rifle? There is a law concerning a license on hunting; a law that says a boy must bo lil y^ara of ago before being allowed in a pool hall or beer parlor; a law that they must be 16 years of ago before operating a car. \ Then why doesn't some one da something to mako a law to keev> nmall children from rifles and such? It eeema to me if this were done it would do away wjth this accidental child shooting, I have seen many a boy 18 or H deliberately point a rifle at another "Just for fun/' Well. It may be fun to them but not to the heartbroken mother when It accidentally goes off. I have two small boys and. believe me.- even if they would be called sissies that is one thing they will never have. I hope some day some one will wake u» and do something. MRS. L. A. Olldale.
