Horse Show Hailed as Success; Stock Auction Draws Throng PIPEFULS (Saturday. September 23, 1944) *&*< *''?*:•;'•'$ #» Lieutenant Clyde W. Curley It is a pleasure to quote the citation awarding Lieutenant Clyde W. Curley, Bakersfield High School graduate, the Air Medal for his services in the navy: "For meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight as a patrol plane commander attached to Patrol Squadron Twelve, operating against enemy Japanese forces in the Solomon island area from December 27, 1942, to March 2, 1943. Despite hazardous weather conditions and fierce antiaircraft fire, Lieutenant (junior grade) Curley successfully completed numerous night flying missions against enemy surface craft and strongly fortified shore installations at Munda Point, as well as search flights over hostile territory. On the night of January 10, he contacted an enemy task force of six destroyers and one light cruiser off Cape Esperahce, tracked It relentlessly and accurately, and relayed information to our surface craft which prevented shelling or landing by the enemy units. His skillful airmanship and courageous devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of " the United States Naval Service." (Signed) "FRANK KNOX, "Secretary of the Navy for the President." Harry V. Gordon Last August 30, The California n received a report and used it in a story about Harry V. Gordon, of the Coast Guard. The substance of the story was that the commanding officer of an LST wrote a letter of commendation for Harry for having been under "constant enemy fire for 14 hours" during which he assisted in loading 265 men aboard ship from the beaches of France. This story appeared in the news columns of The Californian. This week I received the following letter from Mr. Gordon: "Dear Jim: I just received a clipping from the August 30, edition that contains misleading information. For the benefit of any of your readers who fail to realize that such information often, as in this case, originated with ill-advised publicity agents, I have not been under fire fourteen hours all together since leaving the Mediterranean. Furthermore if I had thctt wouldn't make me a, hero. Besides we aren't here looking for glory or adventure. All we are looking for is a. return ticket and while waiting are doing just what you or anyone else would under the same circumstances. "I can't exactly agree with Miss Bing on the subject of 'K' rations, either, but maybe that is because I've eaten more of them under less favorable conditions. "Yours very truly, * "HARRY ,V. GORDON." Tony Feliz Tony P. Feliz, 1730 California avenue, who has served for 11 months overseas with the Americal division, has been promoted to the rank of corporal.

KREISER Perhaps one of the most important features of the forthcoming American Legion publication, "Those Who Serve," is the excellent history of Kern county, contained in the book and compiled by Jesse D. Stockton. already known as a teacher and athletic coach and now to add to his laurels that of a very able historian. Philip Guedalla, who is another writer of histories, once remarked that "history repeats itself and historians repeat each other." Once, during my three years of historical research studies at the University of California at Los Angeles, my professor quoted Guedalla's "bon mot" but pointed out that it necessitated considerable training and ability to know which of the historians to repeat. Mr. Stockton has both the ability and training to distinguish these and his work will, in my opinion, be one of the most valuable records of the history of this land. It requires sound education and infinite patience to do good research work. It requires also integrity and discernment. These qualities Mr. Stockton adequately demonstrates as he carries the reader through the various phases of Kern county history, scrupulously crediting his in- 'ormation and demonstrating indeed ay this very method his judgment and excellent grasp of the story itself. Fages Records Used Beginning with the records kept ay Don Pedro Fages on his trail blazing trek into the San Joaquin valley in 1772, three years before the signing of the Declaration of Inde pendence and the birth of this country for which the sons of Kern county now are so valiantly fight ng, Mr. Stockton uses his source material .skillfully to carry the •eader through the years to the present. Employing at times other transla- ions, at times his own, Mr. Stockton uses the diaries of the explorers to give an account of the Kern area in he Spanish period, the Fages ma- .erial, the diary of Padre Juan Marin, The Ruiz-Zalvidea expedition and others. Mr. Stockton has the advantage of cnowing the ground thoroughly and iterally. since he has followed the rails described in these documents. By this means, he can translate the stories into present-day meaning. Explorations of Americans From the days of the Spaniards o the explorations of the Americans, ncluding Kit Carson and John C. remont, the fascinating and well- locumented story unfolds under Mr. Stockton's excellent editing. The gold rush in the Kernville and Ceyesville districts are covered in )icturesque contemporary accounts. Extracts from Asbury Harpending's book, "The Great Diamond Hoax," ell of the founding and naming of lavilah, and Mr. Stockton wisely ets excerpts from the Havilah Weekly Courier tell the story of life n the county seat. This grows into he rise of Bakersfield and the shift- ng of the scene to the valley again. With the acceleration of modern ife, the story swings into a chron- cle of steady development of Kern ounty and its cities and communi- ies, their fortunes in times of peace ,nd of war, until the present day. Definite Asset Never before has so complete and o well-achieved a narrative of Kern ounty been published and it will be definite asset to the archives of lie county as well as a necessity to he well-Informed citizens of this rea. Having, through experience, fair idea of the problems and ob- tacles which Mr. Stockton so sue- essfully negotiated, the writer con- ratulates him on his achievement, nd the Frank S. Reynolds Post of he American Legion for its far- ighted enterprise in making pos- ible this valuable addition to the istory of Kern county and of Call- ornia. Specie -.
