You see, I have many friends who hail from Kansas and one fine old lady came into this office n a few days ago and said, "See here, young man, what do you mean by blaming Kansas for a dust storm we had here in kerstield? Is the stale of Ka to blame if the wind blows here in Bakersfield?" Well, you knowi folks, she sort of had me there for I did call our recent dust storm a Kansas rain. After considerable ex* plaining I sort of con* vinced this nice old lady that I meant no harm to Kansas. So in the future I guess this reporter will have to pick on some other state, i but just as sure as I do I'll offend some other friend from said state so perhaps I'll do better if I just confine rny column to bragging about the good mea Is to be obtained at the Frank Meat Company's six busy markets. * Most every one, you know* agrees on that. * The fancy pork purchased by us at the Kern County Livestock Show will go on sale this week end. However, we will not have enough to go round so if you want some fancy pork, call at our markets early . .« please. The prize steers are in the process of aging and will go on sale at a later date. Please watch this column for announcement. * You know, folks, we have not had the nerve to say much about baseball in this column lately because, as you know, this reporter picked Seattle to win the Pacific Coast League pennant and they finished 'way down the list. So we have been taking so much ribbing and kidding that we are going to be more careful in the future about picking winners in baseball. However, we still main- ttuu that the Frank Meat Company'a six busy markets are Bakersfleld's leadingest meat markets.
