That purpose is an art. gallery that it has already established. To be sure, it is not pretentious, but it i« centrally located and its walls are set up solely ior the purpose of holding pictUles.

To be exhibited under the liamier of the l!.ike! slii'ld Art Association should be an honoi and give an artist recouni'/ed standing in the community and stale. It was interesting to see in one place the -work of main- artists this writer had \iewed in their own U'MIKKS studios or at school. It was interesting to note, for instance, that. Vina (".'rose has gone from black ami white media to colors, exhibiting an oil: that I'M Compton. a brilliant art student here, has some excellent work garnered in North Africa, one on Arabian scone and one a .jungle scene done in primitive style. I'at Day's ceramics were a charming, surprising indicating that younger and newer artists should have public recognition. The ceramics of Eunice, Vebcle would hold place •with the best work of any ceramics artist, any where. So would the original tejnpcra paintings of Kenneth Jameson. It was interesting to note (lint Dr. f. I. Meade has wood carvings as his hobby and very good wood carvings they are. too. Tlie names oi !he artists exhibiting. nianv of (hem professionals, are too numerous to mention here. tin! the work was interesting and certainly indigenous to the country, as landscape work abounded. Definitely Kakorsficld is on Its way to a real, alive art interest and here's hoping that this gallery opening will be the foundation of a permanent local art gallery.

I An aerial photo map lias been completed of the Sequoia National Forest and has be*>n used extensively this summer as an aid to fire control and timber management. The aerial photos are tied to the ground by known features on the ground such as lakes, streams, roads, etc., and the study of the. photos by powerful glasses makes all cultural features stand out, showing wooded areas, drainages, etc. These photos are of great aid i-i fire fighting, as they give the "fire boss" an on-the- ground picture of the area into which the fire is liable to travel, thereby aiding in planning operations and assignments: of men and equipment needed to control the fire. Much ti'ne is saved (which is the greatest factor i,- fire control) by use of the aerial photos, as it eliminates the time used ot first scouting or walking the limits of the area to ascertain the proper location to start action on the fire.

At any rate, this year will he an all-St. Louis World Series with the Cardinals representing the National League and the Browns representing the American League, and therefore all the World Series games will be played in St. Louis, starting Wednesday and continuing daily until one or the other team wins the world's championship. The New York Yankees have always been this reporter's favorite baseball team but this year they did not come through on top, so we cannot crow about them so much. Rut one thing we can crow about- is the good meat and service to be obtained at any one of the Frank Meat Company's six busy markets. The prize steers purchased by the Frank Meat Company at the Kern County Livestock Show are in the process of aging and will be on sale at our markets in the very near future.... Please watch this column for dales on this EXTRA, EXTRA fancy meat. It will be sold to the public here in Bakersfield at REGULAR OPA PRICES. In Germany these days, they say there Is a boom in the study of foreign languages. The Berlin joke ... a grim one ... goes like this: What is an optimist? The man who is learning English. What is a pessimist? The man who is learning Russian. There is also the story of two privates who paused to puzzle over a dead animal they saw by the roadside. "It has two stripes." said one. "That settles it," saidlhe other. "It's either a skunk or, a corporal." Server Kaar, owner and operator of the Citizens Laundry, has had a pair of pants of mine for . .. a long time ... to be cleaned and pressed. . . . Now, Server is one of my best friends but I hope he will realize I need my pants. "So, pleez, mister. Gif it to me ... my pants." MEAT the people at Frank Meat Company's six busy markets.
