Transportation Stressed in Address by Dr. Wassell The direct link of transportation with success or failure in the war was traced in the vivid story told to Bakersfield employes of the Santa Fe railway yesterday by Commander Corydon AI. Wassell, heroic navy doctor, cited by two governments for his rescue of 43 wounded men from Java under Japanese attack. His story first told by President Franklin Roosevelt In a talk and made latter into a motion picture, was repeated in person by the doctor who spoke to 400 workers gathered on the lawn by the roundhouse. The workers, Mexican, Negro and white, both men and women in overalls and slacks; office workers, engineers, firemen, and their families and officials of the company were told that their part in the war effort is one of the biggest roles that workers are given. Doctor Wassell said: "When you think that our air power, our fighters, our bombers, our armored equipment and the cream of our young men have all been given to one end, the disruption of communication and transportation of our enemies, you can see how really great your work is needed and what a catastrophe, disruption of com- munications between our east and west would be." Commander Wassell described vividly the hardships and suffering of American fighting men faced in the Pacific area, during the losing and early tragic era of the war with the Japanese. Commander and Mrs. Wassell were honored at a dinner in Tower Room last evening by officials of the Santa Fe railway. Among those attending the dinner were Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Smith, Messrs, and Mesdames E. O. Bagenstos, E. E. Sanders, Jack Hines, L.. S. Bretz, F. W. Dickey, M. F. Smith, of Fresno: George Haberfelde, C. M. Walsh, Jack Kliedenst. Loron White, Mrs. Odgen Reavis, Messrs. C. L,. Heny, W. G. Bain, and Kent Fuller, of Los Angeles.
