Crites, (.'(-Moral chair- the Maker.sfield postwar Idealizing the urgency of civic planning now for satisfactory postwar adjustment, many of l',a!;eis- flrlfl civic leaders have given enthusiastic endorsement to thp. A. A. t'. \V.-sponsorpil Open Forum being presented, September 28, at the Washington School auditorium and featuring throe speakers of national repute, each of whom will contribute to the general topic of American postwar adjustment. The interest displayed by the Bakersfield community leaders is more understandable when it is realized that the Open Forum was originally formed at the request of many civilian croups in California anxious to I'ainiliarixe themselves with s^nie of the problems which will confront America when military victory is achieved. Arthur man of planning council, remarked: "The local A. A. I,". \V. is performing a very constructive service in bringing the Open Forum to Hakersfield. Since wo believe that the community should be well informed on the problems facing all of in postwar planning, we believe that the public should give generous support lo the forum coming September "S." Panel Idea Praise T)r. Thomas T.,. Nelson, superin- lendent of Kern County Union Jligh School district, and an active participant in the postwar planning council, gave his opinion that "the panel idea of the .'[-speaker forum is especially constructive, since it allows for the presentation of differing viewpoints and affords good opportunity for audience, parlicpa- tiun in true town meeting style." Doctor Nelson also expressed his upiniuii that the topic chosen by the forum, that of America's postwar adjustment, is an unusually timely fine and of especial significance at this lime. Council Cancels Meeting Kinory (jay Hoffman, general manager of the Kern County Chamber of Commerce and general secretary of the postwar planning council, in giving his endorsement of the September 1!8 forum mentioned that, for the first time in 10 years, the regular Thursday night meeting of the Kern County Chamber of Commerce was postponed to allow its liiO active members opportunity to hear the forum, this action being taken. Air. Hoffman explained, in recognition of the outstanding merits of the three speakers being featured. Mr. Hoffman remarked: "The post- war-minded people of this and every community are now faced with the reality of having to eo-operate In actual postwar planning, rather than more contemplative thinking on the subject, and the Open Forum being sponsored by the A. A. t*. AV. is one definite step toward effective community act Ion." Miss Ysabel Forker, president of the California slate division, A. A. T. AY'., stated yesterday in endorsing the local branch's forum planning: "1 heartily approve of the f'iruni plan of discussing civic, national and. international subjects, and I want especially to endorse the postwar adjustment program being sponsored by the local A. A. 1'. AV. branch. It will nut only afford general participation by our local members, as recommended by our state and national association, but is a timely subject about which, every far-sighted person should be contributing sound and constructive thinking." Chester James, planning engineer of the Kern County Planning Commission and director of the Kern County Postwar Planning Council, has n special interest in the Septem- her L'.S Forum, since be was once a student of Dr. AV. Rallenline Henley when Doctor Henley was dean of the school of government in the Vniver- sity of Southern California. Mr. .Tames said today, "Public interest and understanding have the urgency of postwar conversion, and a community development program is necessary in making effective plans In advance of the need. Doctor Hen- lev has boon so intimately associated with these matters he will have inanv constructive ideas to offer at the Forurn." Mrs. .Joseph Let'onle. chairman of the planning committee for the forum, and Miss Kdna Keough. president of the local unit, in inviting the Bakersfield public to attend the forum stated that tickets can still be secured by phoning Mrs. Robert Shrove. 8-8132, by contacting the Kern County Chamber of Commerce, or the Rakersfield Chamber of Commerce. The educational implications of the topic being discussed are recognized with the information that institute credit for all teachers attending the forum will be given.

POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT on the HOME FRONT VOTE NO! OR proposition J Governor Earl Warren; the Stale Chamber of Conw merce; civic leader* and a scar* of employer; employee; civic; veteran and church groups have come forward to oppose No: 12 on the ballot In the election; November 7th: These leaders look upon No: 12 as a threat to industrial peace in. California and as a dangerous attack on our united efforts to win the war: If written into the constitution, this committee it convinced that this proposal entitled "The Right of Employment" would prove « powder keg. It would bring chaos, confusion, and industrial warfare. It would destroy peace on the home front. Ostensibly designed to crush trade unions, No. 12 goes far afield. It threatens the present good will existing between labor and industry. It, comes n an un-American attack en war production. California has plenty of wartime and post war problems.
