8 Wednesday, October 11, 1944 Q%e itakercfftib Ca Worn Ian SHARING between the SHEARS Hy MAE If you are just getting that package for the woman overseas into the innil, here nre a few things you do not need to put into it. No alarm clocks are needed, the le call docs the trick. If you have a flashlight keep it, tho <;;. I. j.-uie trots one from the army supplies. Tho woman in sfrvico also has ;i flat iron and besides thoy ar'j heavy to ship. Scrap bn-.k.s all have to pass through the censor when thoy fli.'inse stations and there is tfrave dancer of scrap book.s and diaries falling into om-iiiy hands. I Jest idea i<= to keep a scrap bonk at home for her to enjoy la lor. Ton bad. but sewing kits, shoe shine kits, manicure sets are nil available in the P. X., so why take the trouble of .shipping them. Girdles, too, are issued to tho G. J. fcninie. Bobby pins, hairnets, waving fluids, shampoo and toilet soaps arc all at the P. Now you want to know what to send. So here. It is according to the army dupe sheet. Leather folding picture frames —better with tho pictures, too. A booklet of family mugs and familiar places, always good. Identification bracelets with those littlo sentimenlH only people who are dear to each other c;jn think up. Silver doping chains are pretty nice, too. Personalized stationary does a lot for rnonile of the women who has to have regulation everything else. Sun glasses are popular with the women in f Mo army. There js plenty of glare at army fields and particularly in the sunny climates. SAUNDERS Fruitcake is the best kind of food to ship overseas. Among the books, send only the current best sellers, because the post libraries and the Red Cross get the older good ones. Cream deodorants and depill- tarie.H are not obtainable overseas and may bo appreciated. Colognes and perfumes in plastic compacts are handy to have, but forget the heavy exotic scents. They just don't go with a uniform. Hose, the sheerest you can find for off-duty wear. Handkerchiefs are still pood and are better if they are pale yellow linen to match the chamois-colored scarf and gloven worn with the uniform. And colorful scarves may be worn bandanna, style with sports and play clothes. Women in the service can wear appropriate clothes when engaging In active sports, such costumes as shorts, Blacks, two and three- piece play suits being welcome additions to the wardrobe. Brown kid gloves are worn with the winter \VAC uniform and winter off-duty dross. Lingerie does not have to be kbakl, but can be pretty and lare- trimrned. "White or pastel slips nre necessary for the now off-duty dresses. Housecoats are useful for relaxing around the AVAC quarters and be sure the slippers are comfortable, with strong soles, but light boel.s, because nobndy likes to hoar anybody clacking around tho barracks after lights are nut. Then Jf you know where yimr O. I. girl is, decide if she could use ski suits or swim togs, camera «m! films. (jonera.1 suggestions are starch (for tho girl in England), elastic for repairs, zippers, popcorn (un« popped), shirt hangers, and initialed clothes pins. .,.

CITE POWER ABSENT VOTERS STATE GROUP MAY CONTROL ELECTION Absentee voters of California, expected to number 500,000 including men and womon in the service, may decide who the next president of the United States will be, according to Frank M. Jordan, secretary of state, who conferred here yesterday with K. J. Veon, county clerk on procedures for counting the soldier ballots. California, a strategic state politically, and oftm unpredictable in its preferences, rnny find that Its absentee voters will havo a potent voice after November 7 while the final returns come in. Servicemen and women's votes must be. in this year by November 2:\ in order to be counted. Secretary nf State Jortlnn said that county clerks were boin« the authority to fill out the m.'iinder of affidavits if the turea were made authentically order that full representation be given to voters who might have nep-lectcd details of absentee ballot- inpr. He said that he thought the response in soldier voting wan going to be excellent as it was running as hiffh as 40 per cent. Uo said that out of 110,000 absentee ballots out from California, 34,000 had already been returned. lie said approximately 1000 ballots of absentee voters out of 3000 out in Kern county had been returned here showiner an even higher rate, of voting interest. Tf California voters do not receive their state ballot by October 1. thoy may receive the federal ballot, be said. ;-?>>, /'?v >".v,-',v. i'*t* ; /^-wjttqwxHVg*«%v - - - - :• i, -••™-^^^::v<:<wS?^ > ^^- ' . ^\¥*::y:" --.;• •. H '. re in Bakersfield High School Elects New Class Officers Returning Private Relates Experiences in South Asia G. I. Joe is making quite an imprint on India and he is liked a great deal by the natives, according to Private James O'Hare, Jr., homo on a sick furlough from the India- Burma theater of war. Private O'Hare WHS In the veterinarian corps of the medical unit, serving under General S til well and part of the effective group of 7nen that kept animals, men and materials moving up the Udo Hoar?. He pushed along with the combat units that went Into the Maingkwan and Hunan valley, Where Merrell's Ala lira uderH took the offensive against the Japanese. Most of the Burmese natives are friendly to the Allied troops, he reports. Part of Private O'Hare's duties was the training of horses, lioth as saddle and pack animals and many of these had to be taught to swim native rivers and streams, slick at the bottom with lava rock and bordered with almost impenetrable jungle. This Kern county lad, one of tho younger prize winners in Bakersfield Frontier Day Association rodeo riding, said bronco busting Is much the Fame In India as here, except POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT WK • - - • ** - -.

Governor FRED OUSER Tonight for the continual pests of Insects and fevers that bother men and animals alike. He wild that the Impact of India upon the average G. I. is hard to take, particular the beggers, purposely crippled from infancy because of Illegitimacy of birth and the caste system that prevents a human being from ever changing his station in society. American Influence Is predominant everywhere in India at the present time, said Private O'Hare, who observed that both Mohammedans and Hindus work side by side for the Americans and have become, In many instances, reconciled to the American ideas that persons of various religions can work together. The attitude of the American soldier to the native is much different from that, of the English soldier, he com- merited. The army transportation system has almost revolutionized India In many respects, because where formerly one train ran a week, now GO trains a week go carrying supplies. He reported that the 70 rupees a day paid to Indian workers was as much as they formerly earned in a. month and that both adults and children were showing better physical health as tho result of better food, as well as the health and sanU tatkm measures taken by the Americans. It is not unusual for huge vultures to sweep down upon a group of men and snatch food from their hands while eating, the private reported, and he related how on one march, they passed a place where vultures swooped and settled. Upon investigation it proved to be an open cemetery where the bodies were devoured by the vultures. Private O'Hare commented upon the bravery of the Chinese soldier, and the difficulties of understanding between the average Chinese soldier and the average American soldier, "the difference In viewpoint, background and training being so enormous unless you have great patience and a sense of humor, it is exceedingly difficult," he said. Private O'Hare was first sent to an Indian hospital and was later flown to Miami, Kla,, arriving this week at Modesto, where he will report for further hospltalization at the end of 10 days.

In connection with the discontinuance of blue tokens for consumer use on September 30, the original plan gave the trade an additional nine days—through October 9—in which to deposit tokens, or in which to exchange them at their local Wai- Price and Rationing Boards for other ration currenc3'. Because of the large number of tokens spent by consumers at or near the September 30 deadline, trade members in some instances may not be able to turn them in by October 9. Today's action, therefore, gives the trade an additional seven days for this purpose. Gef your P.D.Q.
