RECORD-BREAKING CROWD SEES BLADES DOWN WHITES Father Flanagan Expresses Approval of Senator's Plan Kern county's Senator Jess R. Dorsey, chairman of the Senate Interim committee on training schools for girls and boys, announced today that he is In receipt of a communication from the RiRht Reverend K. J. Flanagan of Father Flanagan Boys' Home, Boys Town, Neb., In which the noted homemaker for boys expresses approval of the fen- ator's plan by which neglected girls and boys would be provided with training and environment equal lo that of more privileged children at State expense. Senator Dorsoy expressed fnlth In the success of the proposed project which would place children exposed to tlje probability of delinquency In the several 24-hour schools expected to he set up in various parts of the state. He said many committee meetings have been held widely over the gtale and that everywhere his committee has met with the approval of agencies and experts called upon to testify. Flnnngan Approves In line with the Interim committee's proposed program which is designed to correct the growing tide of Juvenile delinquency from Father Flanagan which said: "I have read over your tentative plans for state training schools for boys and girls and I believe it is a step in the right direction. 1 IlUe your idea that we should spend money to prevent Juvenile delinquency rather than to allow a child to remain in conditions which cause delinquency and then attempt to reform the child by reformatory measures which are based on punishment—negative treatment— and which, in my opinion, has proven to be more harmful than helpful because It really does not help to rehabilitate the boy or girl. "Everything should be done to make these youngsters happy and at the same time to help develop their character and to give them an opportunity to secure a good education, both academic and trade, and, of course, there should be, and must be, in order to have a successful program, a religious program such as you suggest which would take care of the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish boys and girls in your setup.

"Let us put the horse before the cart and Juvenile delinquency before It happens, rather than try to keep the doors shut to these youngsters and then attempt to correct them when It is too late." Military Academies CommentiiiR on the plan that will come up for legislation In the next session of the Legislature, Senator Dorsey sn Id: "We are going to get away from everything that smacks of a penal institution and make these schools to be of a military nature which will provide these helpless youngsters training, education and culture. "1 am suggesting that we name the system 'California Military Academy' with branches scattered over the state, and with strong departments in varoius branches, so children may be located for training according to their talents a. desires. "This plan would actually save much tax money while it solves one of the greatest problems In our state. It would take the burden off the counties nnd created one state- supervised system of good schools to be operated at state expense. Old Crime Schools ~> "Many of our county-operated home for children provide no segregation of the good from the bad. and often this failure results in making such a home an actual crime school. Many experts have testified before our committee who said that if a child Is not bad when it enters a tvplcal home, It will not be long becoming bad. "Juvenile delinquency Is a matter of state-wide concern, and I believe there is no reasonable doubt that we will be able to set the character-saving program in action when the state legislators meet In Sacramento in the next session In January," Senator Dorsey added.

Male Workers Must Have USES Referral CUBS TO MEET SANTA MARIA SAINTS AT SAM LYNN SUNDAY AFTERNOON Headed by the husky L,os Webber, star relief hurler for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1942 and 1943, the Santa Maria Saints will storm into town tomorrow morning where, at 2:16 tomorrow afternoon, they will meet the Bakersfleld Cubs at Sam Lynn Park In a renewal of baseball here in what may mark the start of a winter diamond season. Webber, who throws from the right hand side of the rubber, did a lot of effective relief hurling for the Brooklyn Bums, the record books crediting him with an amazingly low earned run average. The names nor the calibre of his teammates are not known but they must be pretty fair country ball players, since they are coming here with a long string of summer victories tied behind them. Facing them will be substantially the same team that won the "Little World Series" of Kern county by defeating the Delano Tigers in the two-out-of-three playoffs Just a few \yeeks ago. The Cubs will be strengthened considerably, however, by Che addition of McAtee, sensational young Bakersfleld catcher, and Leonard Francis, dependable shortstop. The Cubs showed signs of weakness in both those spots during the regular summer season and Bill Wilkerson. who is looking after the destinies of local team, did a nice job of hole plugging when he recruited those two players. Wilkerson Is figuring on starting Demnree. the rubber-armed man with the blazing speed, on the mound, with left-handed ,11m Brown in reserve. McAtee will do the receiving, .llm Brown will he on first unless he Is called In to pitch, and the shrill whistling Jack Brown will be at second. Francis will be in the short field and McUanlels will be on the hot corner. Jones, walker and Turner will be patrolling the out field. Following the custom which worked so successfully throughout the summer season of play here, ad mission to tomorrow afternoon's game will be free.

Top Pigskin Games Scheduled Today By TED MEIER NKW YORK, Oct. 7. GP>— Those St. Louis Browns, whose AVorld Series feats have monopolized sports headlines during the week, must shove over today to make room for college football's third Saturday of the sea-ion. A score of attractive contests are on the program, topped by Purdue- Illinois, Minnesota-Michigan, Iowa Seahawks-Second Air Force, Notre Dame, Cornell-Yale, Dartmouth - Pennsylvania, Duke - North Carolina Preflight, Penn State-Navy, Randolph Field-Texas, Oklahoma- Texas Aggies, Brown-Army and California-Southern California. In addition, Ncrthwestern meets Great Lakes; Ohio State takes on Iowa; Mississippi tangles with Tennessee, and South Carolina battles Miami. The Iowa Seahawks-Second All- Force engagement at Lincoln, Neb., may turn out to be the game of the day. The Second Air Force, sparked by Lieutenant Glenn Dobbs, former Tulsa star forward passer, Is undefeated In five starts, while the Sea- hawks have run wild since losing to Michigan in their opener three weeks ago. A crowd of more than 20,000 is expected to watch this "Army-Navy classic" In the corn belt. Fresh from an upset triumph over Navy last week, the North Carolina Clouilbusters may be surprised by Duke's Southern Conference champs, who are trying to regain prestige lost by failing to beat Penn last week. Notre Dame may run up a big score against Tulane, while Purdue and Illinois may take turns in trading touchdowns. Penn State gave Navy a tough battle last year, but with the Middies on the rebound after being beaten a week ago, it looks bad for the Nittany Lions. Yale faces a stern test in Cornell, while Penn may have to go all out to lick Dartmouth.

Chosen from the many try-out performances for the title role, Mrs. Lorraine Hanna, a newcomer to the community, will make her dramatic bow to Bakersfield amliences as Claudia Naughton, and gives every promise in rehearsal of fulfilling the author's description of Claudia as "young and full of voltage."

David, is being interpreted by Paul Bierman, known to Bakersfield as an announcer over KPMC, who Is having his first stage experience with this role. The role of Claudia's mother, Mrs. Brown, which drew favorable comments from the critics for Its beautifully written delineation, is being played by Miss Marion De Cew. wiio is well-known to Community Theater audiences. Miss De Cew shows with her interpretation of Claudia's mother the qualities described by Rose Franken as constituting a "gentle woman, with an unexpected dash of humor, and a code of robust contempts." Miss Bernice Braddon, whose acting ability has been proven many times in past Community Theater productions, is playing the part of Bertha, the middle-aged European housekeeper, with the "proverbial heart of gold." Miss Braddon is at present working on the foreign Inflections called for In Interpreting her role.

The team was Jack Frost's Whites who bowed to the powerful BUicles by a score of 1. r >-0. The Whites received their first break of the game when they intercepted a pass thrown by Nlcols after holding the Blades fnr two downs. Head, who Intercepted the pigskin ran it 20 yards into Blade territory. But It seemed the Blades were just too much for them, for after three plays of trying to gain, the Whites were forced to punt. Cox took the ball on his own 20 and ran it up to the. 30-yard line, then after a series of running plays with Nicola and Cox spearheading the attack the Blades went for a first down. The Blades were held for less than 10 yards In the next three plays and they once again punted out. The situation, for the first time, looked rosey for the Iil:idcs after one quarter and part of another, when Pappas' kick was fumbled by Head on the White ;!-yard line. This put the Blades in line for theli first score of the ball game. Xirols powered his way through a host of opponent tack lens and the Blades went out in front by a score of fi-0. Cox's conversion attempt was no good and the score stood at the half time: Blades 6, Whites 0. Captain Bob Blalock was Injured In the first quarter and he was unable to start the second half for the White eleven. Head received the Blades' kick-off which resumed the play In the second half. After two running plays and one pass to Chapln the Whites only made a slight gain and again they were forced to punt in order to get them out of a pinch. To the fans' surprise for the second time the Whites' kick was blocked, this time by the Blades' center, Siddal. The Blades once more put their powerful running attack to work and they drove the pigskin down to the 4-yard line, but the Whites moved into a seven- man line which stopped the Blades cold. Bob Sumner entered the game for the Whites in the tail-back position in order to punt In to safety, but the play back-fired when the entire Blade line broke through and nailed Summer behind the goal line for a safety and two points. The Blades were out in front by eight points at the end of the third quarter. To begin the final quarter the Blades had possession of the ball on their own 30-yard stripe and it seemed as though the Whites were tightening up when they held the Blades' power plays Intact, but still they could not get rolling on the offense. The Whites had the ball on their ownlS-yartl line. The Injured Blalock came in to punt for his squad. Just as before, the Blade line swarmed In to block the kick and this time It was recovered by the Blades over the goal line for six points. Cox's extra point after touchdown was good. The Blades held the Whites' final FERGUSON passing threat and the gun Bounded ending the game with the Blades victorious. Xo satisfied with just one victory, the East Bakersfield High School Unegers dumped the Jr. Whites, 12-6. in a thrilling preliminary foot- bal tilt. The Daggers' running threat was headed by two tricky backs, Florence and Jue, who divided the twin touchdowns between them. The Whites' single touchdown was made when Saver tossed a 20-yard pass to Cook from the 40-yard line, who ran the additional 20 yards. The Blues from Bakersfield High School saved the school's reputation when both the varsity and Junior varsity came home from Taft with a duel win in their bag. The Blue varsity downed the Wildcats by a score of 13-0, while the Jr. Blues tucked away a 20-0 win over Taft's Junior varsity. Troy Favored Over Bears in Grid Tilt LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7. <JP>— Th9 l-'niversity of California Bears from Berkeley square off today in the Coliseum for another chapter in their annual football feud with the fnlversity of Southern California Trojans. The Golden Bears are rated as underdogs despite the fact that they upset the U.C.L.A. Bruins while the Trojans managed only to tie the Bruins. But California made only- three first downs (one on a penalty) against U.C.L.A. and less than 50 yards from scrimmage. At any rate the Trojan touters explain that a California team has never beaten the local team since Coach Jeff Cravath has been in charge at U.S.C. The Trojans won in 1942 by 21 to 7 and Scored two victories last season, 7 to 0 and 13 to 0. fTHBUT "GARDEN SUPPLY DIALIR. ACGElERbMUSSFR B R A N I H f S ,BRAWIEY, GARDENA.
