PIPEFULS (M«mUr. September 25, 1M4) LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, MONDAY, SEPT. 25, 1944 PAGES 9 TO 14 Ensign Ray F. Snider *• Corporal Bob Tobias, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sam E. Tobias, has written a G. I, poem, part of which goes: , No thrill to jeeps— , Takes bumps in leaps, And nights In camp are drab. The beer is flat And WACS are fat. The lieutenant is a scab. That's part of it—gives you an •Idea. Don Leddy, now at Fort Kiley, Kan., says it describes his feelings. Tobias is at Fort Eustis, Va. Elton Rodgers Now serving in Italy after a tour of duty in Sardinia, First Lieutenant Elton Rodgers -writes well in a letter home about one of his more recent experiences: » "I recently had a 10-day vacation away from the battery—my first in 18 months. I really relaxed and imd fun. I spent most of the time in Cagliari. While there I had the opportunity of visiting the University ol Cagliari, which I enjoyed very much. Several of us made the acquaintance of flie pro- lessor of English and he took us on a tour of the entire place. I only regret that the school was . not In session but classes were stopped after the bombing and It does not open again until November. They have a wonderful library that luckily was not touched by bombers and their chemistry and physics labs are marvelous. They ai'e built on the same plan as ours but have a good deal more equipment and only the best. As I understand it they had nearly 2000 students at one time and are expanding for more In the future. The plant is now housed in two buildings, one of which isn't yet finished. Article on Sardinia "Incldently, if you would like to read a good article on Sardinia, look up the January, 1923, issue ot the National Geographic Magazine. It's written by Professor Guido Costa, the same English professor, and is complete with pictures. "I also visited the old part of Cagliari which is perched on top of a hill and can be entered only by three gates. These gates, which are actually towers, were built in 1400, and two of them are still in a perfect state of preservation. If my pictures of the one called the Elephant tower turn out, I'll send you one." Elton Is a brother of Sergeant Glendo Rodgers, now In New Caledonia.

LOCATION OF BOARD PROBED SUPERVISORS DISCUSS PROPOSED BOARD SITE Discussion of the location of a onsolldated ration board, formed by the merger of the Bakersfield, East Bakersfield and Oildale boards, was the chief Item of business to come Before the Kern County Board of Supervisors this morning. The two sites under consideration .vere the offices of the present board at East Bakersfield and location at he Kern County Fairgrounds. No decision was reached. Consolidation of the three ration- ng boards was decided upon at a meeting of the Defense Council Thursday night. Chairmen of all boards and OPA officials were present. It was recommended at that time by Floyd B. Cook, district OPA manager, that the location of the consolidated board be at the fairgrounds. Reason given for consolidation was the increasing volume of rationing board business that is now carried on by mail. The matter was referred to the Board of Supervisors in order that the cost of moving and maintenance of the future offices be approved. The case for location of the consolidated rationing board at the county fairgrounds was presented jy Russell Taylor of the Oildale joard. He pointed out that the proposed fairgrounds site is an equal listance from each of the present boards, and would be much more convenient for volunteer workers from Oildale than the offices In East Bakersfield. Cost of repairs and improvements to the offices at the fairgrounds would be $1200, according to Francis Parsons, co-ordinator of the defense council. This compares with $900 rental of the offices at East Bakersfield. However, Taylor pointed out that over the long run the cost of offices at the fairgrounds would be less than at East Bakersfield, since the benefit of improvement of county grounds should be taken into consideration. The case for location at East Bakersfield was presented by Josh Clark, member of that board. He stated that the East Bakersfield board is the largest In the county, and pointed out the difficulty volunteer workers at that board would encounter in driving to the fairgrounds. He claimed that a larger group of persons would be inconvenienced by location at the fairgrounds. The matter was referred to the next meeting of the Board of Supervisors for decision. Other business at the meeting of the Board of Supervisors included authorization of purchase from J. R. Thornton of additional facilities for the fire station at Lament. Sale will be October 23. The resignation of Mrs. Miriam Shallies, secretary of the welfare department, was accepted. « The Union Oil Company received an authorization of a lease on a new location at the airport. Purchase was authorized of a lot at Valley Acres, block 78, tract 1002, from Chester A. Page, for the 'sum of $500 for the purpose of adding to the park acreage. Appointment of Mayor Jack Susch of Delano to the Kern County Defense Council as a representative of the city of Delano was approved. Changes made in the organization of the County Defense Council Involving reassignment of protective services were approved. The board went on record as approving the authorization of a contract to Lockwood & Green Company of New York for the purpose of making a survey regarding the feasibility of establishment of a textile industry In this area. The survey, to cost $5000, Is being jointly sponsored by Kings, Tulare and Kern counties, according to A. L. Trowbrldge, representative of the San Joaquin Valley Merchants Association, who was present at the meeting. Kern county will pay $2200 of this amount provided the survey is* also approved by the boards of supervisors of Kings and Tulare counties. The committee from the Merchants Association met Friday in Vlsalia with Colonel Wood, representing Lockwood & Green Company.

The cotton branch office is chiefly concerned with classification of cotton, improvement of cotton, market news and information for growers, cotton seed, standardization, standardization of cotton linters, naval stores and cotton quality statistics. Kern county is one of the greatest areas of production for upland cotton on irrigated lands and produces one of the highest grades of cotton, said Lanham, who stated that the classing of cotton has been invaluable in giving growers the advantage of knowing the quality and market value of their cotton. All of the cotton grown in Kern county and the San Joaquin valley is eligible for free classing by the office. Mr. Lanham .was in charge of the Smith-Doxey classing service in Washington when it was first set up. Growers can use this classification for loan purposes under the Commodity Credit Corporation. The office keeps up-to-the-minute data, on market prices on the various grades of cotton and this is available to all growers. The statistics, the office maintains, are also valuable to the mills and others engaged in cotton processing. Part of the statistics, for example, enable ginners and mills to better prepare for their work with advance information on how much and what quality cotton will be available. Kern county is notable also for its high acreage yield, Mr. Lanham said. He invited growers to visit his office at any time.
