If Dcliino gels more money from uncxpcclfd sources il mines less money hy tuMilion on properly! II is somelhii>n worth noting tfeiiernlly il isn't Ihe rule. Once the counties of ('nliforniii huilt all Ilieir highways and maintained Ihcin hy laxc's on mil and personal properly. Then came the gasoline lax nnd counties received, generally, more money from Ihal source, than they did formerly from property taxes. Bill did that relieve properly of the burden of taxes? (ienerally, not. The counties proceeded to spend Hie money from the gasoline lax allotted lo them nnd they continued the road lax in whole or in part. This year Delano's lax rale is $1.20. Ihe lowest since 1021. and significantly enough, ;5, r ) cents of the .$1.20 will go for bond redemption, leaving N5 cents in Ihe general fund for municipal purposes. What happened, il seems, is thai the northern Kern County town now receives recognition in the distribution of the slale gasoline lax, and it is also relieved, by legislative action, of Ihe obligation of meeting water bonds through (axes on properly, such interest and retirement lo come from revenues derived from the sale of water. And so it was thai from this nnd sources aside from taxes Delano received $15200 in UKI.'U'il, $902!) in i!i:ti-ar> and $ir»,(ioi in .H:K»-:JH. And Ihe properly holders profiled accordingly by having Ihe lowest lax rale in If) years. The location of Utopia we believe has never been clearly established; perhaps il may have been somewhere around Delano. Al least, thai seems to be Utopia for municipal taxpayers. DOWN IN DIXIE T HE recent primary elections in the slates down in Dixie have, set at rest the prediction that President Roosevelt would find it dillicull lo secure Ihe old lime Democratic majorities in Ihal land of Democratic supremacy. Those candidates who have given Ihe New Deal most vociferous support have, in each stale polled Ihe heaviest votes and we may hear less hereafter as lo the possibility of repealing Ihe history of 1028 when n number of Ihe citadels of Democracy crumbled in the face of Ihe charge. Hint the Pope might invade Hie While House if the Dcmocralic nominee of Ihal year, former Governor Smith, were victorious. That wns a threat thai broke down parly lines, but Ihe southern Democrats nro not terrified by I'.e at lacks upon Ihe New Deal, as a number of results disclose. And they disclose something else, loo, nnd thai is Ihal southern voters have it in mind to get rid of some of Ihe political nuisances who have flourished in thai section of the country, as, for instance, Hilho in Alabama, Pnllmini iii Texas, Talmadge in Georgia. All of them enemies of Ihe President and all of them of a type which could flourish only in Ihe old South, have gone down lo defeat, which in itself will make a substantial contribution to leavening Ihe political loaf. Of course there was no big news in the defeat of these anfi-adminislralion men in Dixie; il. was anticipated by everybody save the publicity directors of Ihe Democratic, campaign, and (hose directors probably knew more about the situation than anyone else, only il was possible lo emphasixe Ihe certain victory by first professing to believe, the results were in doubt. The South will he inlinilely belter oil' without the Hilhos and the Talmadges just as C.aliforiiin might he advantaged through the elimination of a number of ollice holders or would-be office holders of similar slump.

For what seemed minutes sho stood rooted to tho spot, terrlflod with the realization that she had caused Iho accident-—that the driver had swerved to avoid running hor down. Hho ran toward tho car, one hand clutching at hor fpar-tlghtened throat. Even tin sho ran, the severed pipe of tho decapitated hydrant shot 11. slream of water high Into tho air. It cascaded down over the damaged car, drenching everything near. Heedless of,thn geyser, Judith fought her way to thn car and looked Inside. A man was slumped ovnr tho wheel, his hands hanging limp! Erratic In her excitement, sho tugged at his shoulders, trying to pull hltn from tho driver's seat and out of tho polling downpour from tho broken hydrant. Hhe hardly realized It when someono crowded In besido j her and began to help her bring tho man out of tho car. Within tho space of three minutes a score of onlookers had arrived. Some of them shoved Judith osldn, carried tho Injured man Into a little fruit store near the corner. "I saw him hit tho flro plug," sho heard someone say, "so tho first .thing I did was to call the city hospital." Ho was tho man who had tried to help her, the man who owned tho little fruit store. A moment lalor an officer arrived. "Hho wns with him," the fruit mnn sYild. pointing at Judith. • The officer cume toward her.

"Can't tell," tho officer said, scribbling In his llttlo black notebook. "Xhero's an ambulance on tho way." "I want (o go to the hospital with him," Judith said quickly. "I—" There was the heart-stopping whlno of the ambulance siren, and her words were lost In the b\)Z7.lng of tho crowd. With the help of (he officer, Judith fought her way to tho big white vehicle. "Hettor sit up front," tho officer advised. • » • Wordless. Judith climbed to tho high cushioned seat; and as she looked down at the. milling, curious crowd shn saw Stove Fowler elbowing bin way through. With relief shn noticed that hl« attention wim on the nuin they were carrying out of the little fruit store. And tho next thing Hho knew the driver had shoved the car Into gear and was hurling 1 It across town -with tho spaed of a projectile. It seemed to her a wild, reckless ride, and tho high steady whina of tho siren did nothing ,to soothe her already overwrought nerves. Until sho reached the hospital she did not realize that her clothing was soaked' through from tho broken hydrant. There a night nurso poeled off her dripping coat* and insisted sho wrap herself in a blanket. Assuming her to bo a friend or relative of Iho Injured man, tho nurse made Judith comfortable In a side room and promised sho would give her an early report. Ifow long Judith sat there, hugging the radiator and wrapped in the hospital blanket, sho didn't know. But at length she turned, trembling und miserable, to find a tall young ma.n standing behind her. "Good Lord!" ho exclaimed at sight of her face, "you'ro chilled through. I'd better see you have a change of clothing before you leave here." "Are—are you the doctor? 1 ' Ho nodded. "Yes. I—" "How Is ho?" "Getting along fine. Just a bump. Not serious at, all—but he'd better stay the night here." Ho took Judith by one. elbow. "The main thing •now Is to get you fixed up." "J—I'm all right," Judith faltered. But now that sho know tho man would recover, now that relief had come, she felt very weak Indeed. Sho swayed uncertainly, and the doctor caught her firmly by tho shoulders. "Look here, young lady, I'm going to seo that you have a warm shower and some hot tea. You can "stay hero tonight If you care to." "No, thanks, I'd bettor go home." Ho looked at her curiously. "I understand that you weren't In the car at all." "No . . ." "That you Just came along because you foil you wore responsible?" "I. was," Judith said. "1 was thinking about something elso and I stepped off tho curb without oven looking up. I—I might have killed him." * • * Tho young doctor smiled and pressed a button on the wall. "Just tho samp, you know, few pedestrians would seo tho thing through as you have. And if It will make you feel any better, Miss—or is it 'Mrs.'?" "I'm Judith Howard." In spite of herself sho answered the doctor's pleasant smile. "Miss Howard." "Well, as 1 was about to say, Miss Howard, I think the Injured man had =(By 0. 0.

Namely: Those magnificent Japanese Import shops on the avenue and those brilliantly lltj expansive clothing stores that remain open on deserted lower Broadway until midnight. In years of watching them, I have never seen a customer. In tho Jap salons, the salesmen and Jap overlord are In ruled trousers, frock coats, with lapel flowers and the atmosphere.Is of super grandeur. In the clothing stores, aisle after atslo are racked with clothes but tho entire sales force is always out front in curb chairs enjoying a shirt- sleeved ease. The air-cooled restaurants plus tho sidewalk cafes played hob with New York's roof gardens this summer. Also tho' road houses. So' much so, many believe next season will seo roof gardens shucked to a handful In the metropolitan area. Outside a week end puff of business, road houses were practically deserted. To those who enjoy ferreting out etualnt eateries, I recommend La Pa- Una on Navy street In Brooklyn, a discovery of Abel Green's. It is a whizz for chicken vesuve and an expertly garllced spaghetti vermicllll. And a family affair. A fubsy aunt does the cooking and two fresh nephews, whose heart aro. at tho Rosemont ballroom or with Major Bowes, do tho serving. They give you back talk with the food and know all the answers. The place, as so many Italian places are originally, was for tho poor but they are, as usual, being muscled out by the tourists. Eventually it will expand, bc- como lump gllty, mlrrory and perhaps lose its pristine charm. Jim Tully was bemoaning that Hollywood had not yet filmed a great hobo story.

COVERING CAR TRACKS Editor Tho Callfornlan: For tho benefit of I.,. B., I remember reading in The Callfornlan recently that the work of covering the street car tracks on Nineteenth street and Chester avenue has been scheduled by tho city for this year out of gasoline tax money in addition to that which tho street car company posted. A. T. M. Bakersfleld, Sept. 9, 193C. AN ELECTION ANGLE Editor The Callfornlan: I wonder If you have ever thought of ono cock-eyed angle of the present political campaign. I make no apology for hoping you will print tho word "cock-eyed"; Uie governor ot Kansas has marshalled It into tho ranks of classic American. Mr. Hearst and the Liberty League and a lot of other respectable people aro telling us that tho President of tho United Statos Is a Socialist, a Communist and many other terrible things. Now, of courso they know this Isn't truo but a mere matter of truth has nothing to do with political ballyhoo. Mr. Roosevelt has lost no opportunity of proclaiming his belief In tho capitalist system. As a matter of fact ho has served Wall street very well. In the economic recovery, which Is supposed to be tho greatest achievement of his administration, tho dividends have Increased faster than wages—capitalism has found re-employment more rapidly than workers—tho higher up you go in the economic scale the more you appreciate the recovery. It is sheer nonsense to suppose that Mr. Roosevelt is In favor of anything but tho capitalist system profits. with plenty of Tho funny thing is that his most ardent supporters don't believe that. There aro lots of professional men and business men and farmers who believe that American capitalism is the best possible system In the beet of possible worlds, but frankly they don t like the Idea of voting for Mr. Roosevelt. If you want to find a real enthusiastic Roosevelt man (outside of professional politicians, of course) you havo to go down on the street and find tho men and women who aro disgusted with the capitallbt system and who aro vaguely hoplnu for a new set-up—that is to say, the half baked Socialist and tho half baked Communist. They aro taking Mr. Hearst and the Liberty Leaguo for face value: they think that tho President of tho United States is a sort of Communist or Socialist or somo other kind of a radical and that is what they want. Of course they are wrong as I have already said, but nevertheless It remains true that the President's most enthusiastic supporters aro backing him pretty much on the strength of the denunciations of his enemies. When you first read this letter, Mr. Editor, you will think I am " "cock-eyed," too. but if you or anybody else will do the vory unusual thing of thinking for five minutes about what I have said, you will come to see that I am right. Of course, those who really understand' the capita list system and realize that It is past its usefulness and that the world can only be served by tho establishment of a co-operallve system know perfectly well that a veto for Mr. Roosevelt Is a vote for capitalism, but tho President, If ho Is reelected will have to thank Mr. Hearst and the Liberty League for rallying the half baked radical vote to his support.
