8 Mondoy, October 9, 1944 itafcertfffelb California!! SHARING By MAE Arc you ;ipt to shrug off the War Chest campaign as just a perfunctory affair, or to figure how little that you can give? Then this is written for you. There is probably nothing that exemplifies more lite generous and imaginative way of life that is the spiritual inheritance of America than tho War Chest. Its appeal is for tile war-devastated pimples of F.urope. fm 1 war prisoners, for Kuropean children, the war orphans and for those special community sorvicrs which are an integral and unique part of American life. In Mime cities its funds x" to support children's hospitals ami orphanage.^, anil to provide proper care fur the unmarried mother and her child Its funds RO to the character building organizations that give service to youth, to the welfare units of various religious organizations. I'.iikersfield has a part in all this and its n-spnnsibililie. are to support services rendered abroad to soldiers, war prisoners, war refugees, to agencies supporting welfare work on a broad scale througout the nation, and to its own local organizations. Individuals may feel that they have no great interest in all of this, but just as soldiers who go out to a ball IP front a long way from home, every dollar goes out SAINDKRS and does a service in terms of human kindness. .Behind that kindness is the name America, and behind America is the dream of world peace. Dollars cannot buy friendliness nor world peace, but the friendliness that is instinctive with all Americans does. He- turned veterans tell how foreign peoples respond to and welcome the American .soldier. It is our part to do our best to tho maintenance of that good will. The needy of (he earth are a special charge of the Dow richest nation of the earth. Kvery person in America is richer than he thinks he is. Financially the war has iieen a burdc.n to many individuals whoso incomes have not soared. But even Ihe^e can make substantial donations if .some self-sacrifice is imposed. Money spent on entertainment and luxury items is willingly spent, and now is the time for the individual to go over his or her own budget and see how much was spent in one month on luxuries and then face the thought of what gift can be made to the war chest. In most cases, the original donation will be doubled, if persons will pledge to eliminate luxuries for one month and give the difference to the war chest. A gift made this way is a real gift and not .just, perfunctory giving. Dairy Industry Threatened by Control, Houser Charges Complete bureaucratic control of the daif.v Industry threatens California dairymen in the federal administration's policy of throwing a sop to herd owners in the form of a .subsidy, it was declared hero today by Lieutenant-Governor Frederick Houser, candidate for United States senator. "While subsidies have saved the dairy industry temporarily, they are not the proper permanent solution to the problem," llouser declared.

"Hut the danger of the subsidy method is the complete bureaucratic control which would surely follow even to the extent of limiting tho sizTe of herds. That is the history of every situation in which federal government under this administralion has offered and given financial assistance.' 1 llouser cited the example of federal assistance in the state's payment of old-age pensions to prove his point of bureaucratic, control. "In the case of old-age pensions, the state accepted federal funds and then the senior citizens found out that \Vashington bureaus had placed limitations on property ownership and private earnings. In other words, the bureaucrats have assumed control of the stale's pension administration. "The dairy industry wants no such bureaucratic control which would tell herd owners bow many cows they can milk and what they shall feed. 1'rnper ceilings should be established or there should be no ceilings at all. In any event, the initiative and management ability of private herd owners must be given fair play—that is the American way—not coddling and bureaucratic control by inept and inexperienced AVashington ehairwarmers, most of whom have probably never milked a cow," Air. llouser concluded.

Proper use and care of electrical appliances, recognition of defective wiring, bad insulation and poor switches is taught. Pyroxylin plas. tic compound found in articles like brush and mirror backs, combs, hairpins, toys, knife and fork handles, which cause many fires in the hands of careless people, they learn are reasonably safe when people know its dangers and take precautions.

Meet By BETH DYE How art satisfies the fundament;)! human urge for order, as well as beauty, was told and demonstrated by Alexandra Bradshaw, speaking at the opening meeting of Jiakersfleld lirarich, American Association of University Women, in connection with a display of 24 or her water color pictures Saturday night. She .shared the evening's program with the Kive Sharps, a musical ensemble that was making its bow before, larger club units, in a thoroughly pleasing brief recital. Directed by Mrs. A. R. Hoi.sington, who also was at the piano, the members included the Misses Carol and Elizabeth lloi.s- ington, Marcia McKee and Nancy Kosenthal. Note <if Brilliancy Miss IHradshaw's pictures will be remembered among water color exhibits, by .-ill who .saw them, for the nole of brilliancy they provided; intense bold arid free use of color distinguished them from the sometimes tepid paintings common in this medium. In addition to an unquestioned interpretative craft, there was a freshness, and in certain instances, piquancy that proved alluring to the large group of spectators. The paintings, which are mostly of California and Mexico scenes, were hung for the A. A. U. W. exhibit at Woman's Club auditorium by Miss I-ueile Smith, Mrs. Charles Smith and Miss Waive Stager. They were taken later to the now display quarters of riakersfield Art Association where they will remain for this week, open to all art lovers. "Artist's Vision" Miss Bradshaw's topic, "The Artists Vision." dealt with the. distinction between what the artist sees and what other folk discern in the same landscape, the former preferring a tumbledown shack to a nodern bungalow, and emphasizing <pace, form, line, dark and light, color and texture, as they express I emotion. She .stressed the conscious I or unconscious desire for order, I balance and rhythm, opposition and transition, and showed how a pic- ture must satisfy these urges if it gives pleasure. The artist's search for the force, core or axis behind the "seen scene," if a picture is to have universal value to the beholder and feed the artist and art lover, was described. When the urge for order is conscious, rather than unconscious, "It is more fun," the artist said. She believes that anyone can share the artist's vision, which is always looking for relationships. In closing, she made a plea for this vision and said beauty is always present if one knows what it is. Brief Recital Favor was unanimous and immediate in reaction to the short recital presented by the Five Sharps. Their numbers included Andante Con Moto Tranquilln, from the Trio in D Minor, Number 1, Opus 4!), by Mendelssohn: Trees, Rafbach: and Russian Dance, Friml, Played well and PEMO Be gentle with upset stomach.

The Misses McKee and Elizabeth Holisington were the cellists, and the Misses Rosenthal and Carol lloisington, violinists, with Mrs. lloisington at the piano, and announcing the numbers. New Members Honored After the program a reception was held for new and prospective members.
