Double Bus Sorvirc "The double bu? service to Kast Bnkei-sfield makes it the logical location for the consolidated boards. Mnny persons from the Cas.i Loma and Brtindage I^nne nrea now use the board. "Outside of the 1C,000 persons served by the Oildale board. East Bakersfield is an Ideal location. "The East Bakersfleld bonrcl now serves clear east to the Arvln board boundaries that may in time be reincorporated. "The mall service is exceedingly slow on rationing nnd. uwunlly, I have from three 1 to six cases of ration books lost in the mall. The mailmen are overburdened and have difficulties of their own to face. "Foolish to Move" Mrs. C. X. Fuller, -12'M L,indora street, said, "In my opinion it is foolish to move the ration board to the fairgrounds because of the transportation difficulties. You \vill have crowds of people agnin with no service. Our volunteers will refuse to go to work at the fairgrounds." Mrs. Sadie Safford, 51 !l Niles street: "I think the board should be left in East Bakorafield. I think East Bakersfleld now serves the greatest number of people. The fairgrounds is a long way to go on a bus nnd the transportation service is poor." Itoliert Cottom, "Naturally I would rather have the board In East Bak- rrsfieid, because it's on my way home. It. would bo better located there, than at the fairgrounds. Mrs. A. E. Herrald, L'PiT Flower street, "if the boards are to be consolidated, it would be better to have the board in Bakersfield. Almost everyone has to go into Bakersfield anyway and It Is more convenient than the fairgrounds. However, If the fairgrounds is more central for everyone, J s ippose it should be at the fairgrounds. Living in East Bakersfield, naturally 1 find the East Bakersfield board location more convenient for me where It is." Continued on Pago Eleven Russell Taylor, chairman of the Oildale ration board, said today: "The fairgrounds Is equl-distant from nil of the present boards. We serve :!2,onn persons in Oildale. We do not like to see the matter become one of controversy. A survey was made by Floyd B. Cope, district OP"A board operations executive for J. H.

"The amount needed to fix up the fairgrounds building would merely amount to a year's rent for the Kast Bakersfield board's present site, and the county would benefit from having an improved building. Money will he needed to fix the East Bakersfleld board, too, so T fed, it is much more economical to use the fairgrounds building.

Clarence C. Karns. Oildale businessman, said. "I think that if the boards are going to be consolidated, (lie fairgrounds is the logical location and much more central than East Bakersfield. During the day, the traffic on buses to Oildale is not nearly so heavy as It Is to East BaU- erst'leld and the parking space at the fairgrounds Is much better. We should get away from paying rent on a building and the repairs to a county building at the fairgrounds would be a permanent Improvement to county property." .More Central Mrs. Stanley Singleton, past-president of the Xorth-oC-the-River Women's Service Club, "The fairgrounds is the better place for the new ration board. H is more central to get to. I use the buses and I find using the Oildale bus is much easier than using the buses to East Bakersfleld as the latter are usually crowded." The new location of the ration board will probably lie decided on Monday at the County Board of Supervisors' meeting.
