PENSIONERS HEAR STATE CANDIDATE KILPATRICK TERMS $60 INSUFFICIENT AMOUNT HI ALTO® Special Spanish Film "II Hombre do la Mascara do Hiorro" Addressing more th;m 200 hers of old AKP IViifionors Clubs from all parts of California in Eagles hull Tuesday nlli'niooii, Vcrnon Kll- patric'i, candidate for re-election to the state Assembly from the Fifty- fifth district, declared Hint the $fiO at 60 proposal which will be Proposition No. 11 on the hallot in November is nn insufficient pension. "In order to secure prosperity, a greater purchasing power is necessary than would result from JliO per month to ench person over (in," the assemblyman said. Mr. Kilpatrick advised the Old Age Pensioners to approve No, 11 on the November ballot, and to accept the money if the measure is voted in, but to be ready to agitate for an increase in the amount if they wanted prosperity to result. Mr. Kilpatrick was introduced by J. H, Wnlnh, state president of the Old-Age Pensioners Clubs, nt the afternoon session of the first dny of a three-day convention of the protagonists of old-nge pensions. Welcoming Speech The mornins session, held in the Greek theater at Beale Park, fea lured a welcoming speech by Wiley O. Dorris, president of the Kern County Old-Age Pensioners Club. Declaring that a pension for the nged is not a form of charity but interest paid on wealth produced by their past labor, Mr. Dorris said, "A farmer does not turn his teams out to starve alter they become too feeble to work, but he, turns them out to paslure where they can rest In contentment with plenty of food to eat. The work tho animals did during their productive years earned them the right to live out their life in peace and plenty and that is the wny it should be with the human workers." The local president pointed out that the highways and railroads used by delegates to the Old Age Pensioners Club convention are wealth produced by workers most of whom are no longer productive, but, he added, tho wealth remains. Those who labored on such projects should not be forgotten just because they no longer produce, but should share in the interest derived from such deposits of wealth, Mr. Dorris said. Militant Oroiip State President Walsh and Mr Dorris Joined in urging Old Age Pensioner Clubs to build themselves Into a strong organization, a mill taut group of 100,000 persons of ti( years or more, making politicians In ellned to grant requests made h> them. Mr. Dorris cited insurance company statistics to show that ou of 100 men whose case histories were followed between the ages of 20 nnr BO, f>5 would be dependent upon others when they reached the age of 80. Of the other 45, Mr. Dorris quoted 35 will bo dead, 1 will be wealthy 4 will bo well-to-do and r» will bi poor, but self-supporting. "Is i reasonable to believe that r>5 (or (50 if we include those who are poor out of a living li. r > men have been so laxy or so incompetent that in 4 | years they could not have producer and saved enough to give them ; competency for their old age'.'" Mr Dorris asked. ' History of Aid Mr, Walsh traced the history of nld for the aged in California and declared that the nld as now given is not regarded as well-earned security for the aged, but aw charity that is unwillingly doled out by the welfare department. Klection of officers for tho state Old Age Pensioners Club is on the agenda this morning, the final day of the convention. Basis for Potato Ceilings Changed Intermediate sellers of potatoes and mions may not base their ceiling >rices for current sales on the larg- st single purchase during the pre- eding week, the Fresno district of- ice of Ol'A said today. Kffectlve October M, 10-14, inter- | nediate sellers are required to figure j heir celling price on each individual | ut of potatoes and onions received, j Ol'A said this change was made because of hardship and confusion •aused by sudden changes in f. o. b. chipping point pi-ices that are made from time to time as allowances on account of crop losses in the various irodiicing areas. These changes nust rcquently be made without adequate advance notice; consequently ntermedlate sellers cannot judge their purchases with any certainty. The former method was used by .ntermediate sellers as a means of getting high ceiling prices for potatoes and onions having low ceiling prices, simply by buying low-ceiling ?oods, holding them In storage and :>uying small quantities of high- celling goods upon which they teased their coiling for their entire stocks. Today's action is expected to remedy both these situations. Teachers Work for Propositfon_No. 9 The proposed change In the school tax .structure to equalize the tax burden in California was the topic of Kern County Federation of Teachers at a meeting, Monday night, at school headquarters, ItiOO K street, with Mrs, Douglas Jarrett presiding.

New members were welcomed and refreshments were served by the hospitality committee. Senator J. It. Dorsey'a proposal to establish 24-hour schools in an effort to aid Juvenile protection, was endorsed. A reception to new members was held, with Mrs. Ed riillette heading the hospitality committee. Suit Charges $10,000 Reputation Damage A suit asking $10.000 damages nnrt charging malicious persecution is on file today by Jens T. Jensen against Harris E. Cook.
