PIPEFULS (Friday. September 22. 1941) Ration Boards Joined Lieutenant Jack Gist 0. g.) I •wonder what more in life, as ;Jack Gist goes on, can approximate the adventures he has already had in this war as a navigator-bombardier for the navy. He Is now in Draining for a navy pilot's wings. He and his outfit were at Guadalcanal, New Georgia, Munda, New Guinea, Admiralty Islands, Wadke, Fiji islands, Tarawa, Makin, Wake, Midway. Truk and Palau. Travels 190,000 Miles ' He has crossed the equator 135 times, has traveled 190,000 miles and has served on 65 missions In •even and one-half months. Con- celve the life he has lived and contrast it -with some fellow keep- Ing books in one office for 30 y»»ars. . Jack's crew has a total of eight enemy planes destroyed and three chips sunk. Donald Round From Grace Bird, director of the Junior College, I learn that First lieutenant Donald W. Round, who took pilot training under the Bak- ersfteld Junior College, has completed 60 combat missions as a B-26 Marauder pilot in the Mediterranean theater, operating from Cassino and Anzio to the Po valley ^nd southern France. Bill Mitchell First Lieutenant William B. Mitchell, son of Mr. and Mrs. V. *\V. Mitchell, 728 Sumner street, has participated in more than 100 combat missions to targets in Germany as a photographic officer of the Fifteenth Air Force bombard- 'ment group. Bill went to Jaysee here, U. S. C., and studied photography at Yale. A lot of per- BOIIS may not have realized it, but tjie aerial camera in this war has been almost as important as the high explosive bomb and the heavy machinegun. Clinton Thompson Lieutenant Clinton Thompson (J. g.). Pilot of a navy Helldiver bomber, has been missing for many months. We hope that some day he will be found well and alive on some Pacific Island. We do know this about him: He was a member of LieutenantCommander James E. Vose's famous Helldiver squadron, one of the best in the navy. Clinton was the pilot of a Helldiver and was on a reconnaissance flight one day and sighted a force of 120 enemy planes coming in to attack the carrier. i-The young officer radioed in the warning of the! oncoming Jap horde and thus enabled his carrier to pet all its planes into the air to defend the flat top arid Its escort. Clinton was engulfed in that ewarm of fighters and nothing has been heard of him since then. But the carrier shot down 16 planes and our own fighters in the air took care of the others in a manner to which our navy fliers have accustomed them. The Japanese attacked four times before they were driven off. Who knows what the story would have been had not Clinton sighted that attacking force? Here is another Kern county boy, a hero as good as they come. Jack Thompson Jack Thompson, Clinton's brother, is leaving Livermore this week to take advanced flying in the navy at Corpus Christi. He was recently awarded his degree from the University of California. The mother of these boys is Mrs. John Thompson, of Buttonwillow. Hockey Players Thousands of persons remember that scrappy bunch of kids representing Bakersfield's hockey team when we had hockey here before the war. Through Dr. C. Marsili I learned where some of these boys are now and what they are tloing. Tommy Metcalf Tommy Metcalf, a figure skater, Joined the paratroops and was with the airborne invasion of •outhern Trance. He was okeh When last heard from. , Dick Priem Dick Priem, who played goalie here, reports that he has been taking lots of pictures of England and if he survives he will look at them to recall how much he dislikes the place with its abominable climate, He Is with the air. oorps. Winnie Martinson " Winnie Martinson was in Normandy on-D-Day and when a small ehell exploded in the midst of a group in which he was standing it iftSlled every man in the bunch except Winnie, who was wounded and now carries some of that steel In his body. He serves in the in- ISntry. Johnny Stern Johnny Stern, one of the best of the local hockey players, is serving with the air Corps in Italy and reports that he likes Italy about as well as Dick Priem does England. They will all be glad to get home. Weather Forecast Given for Valley •Ehe weather forecast for the farm •rs of the southern San Joaquin valley, as prepared by the Unltetf States weather bureau in co-opera ' tion with the Kern County farm ad viser's office of the agricultural tension service is reported to be: "Clear skies and rising tempera ture. The maximum today is ex pected to be 80 degrees and 80 to 8 Saturday and Sunday. The nigh time minimum will be around 55 Lowering humidity will provid better drying conditions. Htghes temperature yesterday was 76.' Move Okayed at Kern Defense Council Meet; Group Re-Organized AH protective service chairmen of the Kern County De- ense Council were placed on he inactive list at the meet- ng Thursday evening at the courthouse, when the Citizens Service Corps division was augmented by four additional representatives on the execu- ive committee. Decision was reached for consolidation of the Bakersfield, East Bakersfield and Oildnle ration boards at a neutral location, named s the fairgrounds. The consolida- ion is being made nt the request if the OPA, A. W. Noon, chairman f the defense council said. A building will be refurbished at the airgrounds to accommodate the public. . At the present time there are five paid employes of the Oildale board, ilx in East Bakersfield and nine in Jakersfield. By combining the >oards, less overhead expense will be accrued, Mr. Noon said. Tin Can Salvage Stopped There will be no more salvage of in cans for the war effort, 1t was •eported by Francis W. Parsons, co- irdlnator of the defense council, who •ecommended that the tin can bin it Bernard and Union be removed. The council voted to do this in order o keep the cans from overflowing on adjoining property. Paper salvage will be continued Mr. 'Coon said, and he urged citizens to continue to make use of the road district yards and the firehouses with paper donations. He said that he discontinuance of tin can salvage should not induce residents to litter vacant lots or roadsides with tin cans as the county ordinance to prevent this will be strictly enforced. Mr. Parsons reported $316.83 in the salvage fund of the defense council with $175.98 outstanding from jommunities in the plan. Operation Plans Shelved In the reorganization of the de- 'ense council, it was announced that he chairmen of the protective serv- ces will go on the inactive list and hat the co-ordinated protective serv- ces would be returned to the sheriff, police, fire department and the utill- ies companies.

The council voted to recommend hat air-raid sirens blow on V-Day if the plan is recommended by the state defense council and western defense command. The group also voted to discontinue the pre-induction education program because of the lack of interest on the part of inductees and their families. Mr. Parsons reported $900 had been received from southern California for continuance of the Beds for Buddies program and 50 dozens of sheets and 20 dozens of pillow cases had been purchased. He said 140 mattresses and 25 dozen bath towels were donated from the northern district. He also reported defense council exhibits at the Victory Foods Fair. A. W. V. S.

L. Heisinger, Democrat, that all interested persons confer at a meeting called for September 28, at 10 a m., at the Hotel Fresno. The Elliott amendment, which was [>oth protested and supported in United States senatorial hearing conducted in Sacramento, Fresno, Hanford and Bakersfield in July, was passed previously in the House of Representatives. Suggestions Welcomed Following the hearings in Bakersfield, both Senator Sheridan Downey and Congressman Alfred Elliott opened the way for a compromise agreement with the announcement that constructive suggestions to solution of the water rights problems would be welcomed. Chief opponents to the Elliott amendment have declared that the amendment will throw open the door to land speculation in the central valley area, and yet those most rigidly opposed to the Elliott amendment do not favor the strict 160- acre limitation enforcement of the United States reclamation laws. "I have come to favor a plan by which the provisions of the reclamation act will be applied generally say by 1965," Assemblyman Heisinger declared in announcing the Frenso conference, according to a news dispatch. "For instance, it might be> ruled the law be applied rigidly after a certain date and that whenever large holdings, to which the act had been made applicable, are liquidated by death or any other cause, the law would again go into effect for each land parcel. "In the case of land companies, a date probably not later^n, 1965 might be set after which each holding would be subjected to the original rigor of the act. "I want every one who comes to be prepared to discuss concrete proposals and each person should have an idea for a compromise solution worked out in his own mind to a point that it can be discussed intelligently." . Individuals Invited The assemblyman said the invita^ tion is extended to individuals and special letters will be sent to the State Farm Grange, the Associated Farmers' Western Co-operative Dairymen, the department of the interior, the 95 per cent Committee and the Central Valleys Protective Association. HUMAN INTEREST—"I think that 'Those Who Serve' is a masterpiece as a result of thorough study and hard work. Jesse Stockton is the most qualified person in the country to write the history of Kern and his writings have a personal touch and feature human Interest throughout," is the opinion of Major Leonord Hall, past commander of the California State Guard. "Those Who Serve" which contains, besides the history of Kern county, the history of the Frank S. Reynolds Post 26, American Legion, which is the sponsor of the book, and the pictures of over 5000 servicemen and women. Orders are being taken for the book at local legion hall. C. E.

Reynolds Post of the American Legion went on record unanimously as being opposed to any celebration of V-Day and in favor of work as usual, according to Frederick E. Hoar, post commander. It was the consensus of opinion that upon capitulation of Germany and its re maining satellites in Europe any recognition of the event should take the form of a pause only for thanks by those engaged in the war effort, for that much accomplished, and Immediate resumption of harder work leaving festivities to abide the defeat of Japan. "Those who feel they must, celebrate, should go to the church of their choice and give grateful thanksgiving to God," said Leonard C. Hall, who proposed the resolution. In fixing the tone of the meeting, Mr. Hall said further, "De feat of Germany means only that our work is half done, and those who have loved ones in the armed forces or who have lost loved ones will noi look with favor, on any premature 'celebration' in the nature of a carousal." Featured address of the session was that of Alfred Siemon, local at torney and mayor of the city, in troduced by Ray T. Neideffer, chair man of the post Americanism com mitte. Mr. Siemon spoke under as signment of the Kern County Bar Association on "The Constitution of the United States." Mr. Siemon stressed that, although it is the gen eral opinion that the government is divided into three "co-ordinate" branches, legislative, executive am judicial, In truth the legislative branch under the Constitution exer cises powers far superior to those ol the other two branches. Mr. Siemon said, "The great power which our President draws is not found in the wording of the Constitution but in the powers conferred upon him by Congress, and Congress which grants it may as quickly take it away." The people need not fear dictatorship in this country, Mr. Siemon concluded First Lieutenant Wilfred H. Gil of the army air forces, on leave and holder of the .Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with foui Oak Leaf Clusters, veteran of 60 missions as pilot of a B-17 Flying Fortress in the European theater gave the members some highlights of this combat experiences in an un scheduled talk. Adjutant N. A. "Slats" Curran re ported good progress in advance re enrollment of the 1945 membership Refreshments followed the session. $301 Taken in Three Hotel Burglaries A series of burglaries struck three local hotels last night between 3 a. m. and 6 a. m. with a total loss to guests of $301, the ofice of Police Chief Robert B. Powers reported this morning. Luis Firpo and Angelo Telesco New York pugilists, guests of Hote Imperial, lost a total of 1268 while they slept in their unlocked room police said.
