Such an honor has come to Lieutenant Elbin K. Polen, of this city, who left here with the pne Hundred and Forty-fourth Field Artillery, though that outfit now has a new designation. Lieutenant Polen is now on active duty at the combat front in the big drive against the Siegfried Line. He has written home here to Earl Smith, who also served with the One Hundred and Forty- fourth. Mr Smith was given a medical discharge. Other Bakersfield men now serving with the same outfit include Edward T. Dowling, Archel N. Dobbs, Walter B. Dennis, \Villlam A. Alexander. Likes Belgium Of all the people he has met, Including the English, Lieutenant Polen wrote that he liked the Bel- giums the best. Trinity F. Lopez Here is an act of courage that won for Private Trinity F. Lopez, of this city, the Bronze Star for bravery. Lopez is serving with the Fifth Army in Italy. Infantry elements under heavy enemy fire were cut off from support by a bridge which was -mined. Lopez and nve other men of great bravery went out to the bridge, which was also under heavy fire from the enemy and at the immediate risk of blowing themselves to bits, not to mention shell and ride fire, removed several 750-pound bombs from underneath the bridge, as well as several exceedingly dangerous contact mines. Salute to Lopez "Their courage and devotation to duty were an inspiration to all who witnessed the action and reflect credit upon the military service ..." That in part Is the way the citation reads. It was thoroughly earned. We salute Private Lopez, a nephew of Virginia Lopez, 524 East Ninth street, of this city. Charles Griffith Second highest in his class with an average of 96.3 for a difficult course in electricity is the record of Charles Griffith, 18, of this city, son of Mr. and Mrs. Don Griffith, 1427 Monterey. Charles, now an electrician's mate third class In the navy, has been sent from Detroit to New York to.take further work as a projectionist for motion pictures. Last year he served as "mayor" of Bakersfield for a day when the DeMolays took over the city administration. He attended Bakersfield High School and Junior College here. Bob Mitchell Robert Mitchell, 403 K street, called me over the telephone this week and said he is home after 13 months of service in the Pacific with the Hawaiian Construction Company. He worked at Christmas and Canton islands and was at Pearl Harbor before the attack, he said. His next assignment will be in Arabia. Correction Correction: Some time ago it was*reported to this column that Bob Tobias, son of the Sam To- biases of this city, had written a facetious army poem. Sam Tobias' bojfcis in the navy. The boy that wrote the poem was Bob Tobias, but another Bob and serving iu the army and no relation of the local Tobias family. It was ail odd coincidence both having the same name. This correction is made to get the record straight. Whiting Boys Bill Whiting's two boys have received promotions in their naval service. George Whiting has been promoted to aviation machinist's mate second class. He is serving In the" Pacific. Bill, junior, is promoted to motor machinist's mate second class on a mine sweeper in the Atlantic. He was with the fleet during the invasion of •south- er* France.

C. Houze, at the inquest this morning at the coroner's office. It was established that of the four shots fired, three entered Morris' body. Deputy District Attorney Roland Woodruff said. According to reports from the autopsy yesterday, the first two entered his chest and might not have caused death. The third shot, according to McDaniels' story to Mr. Woodruff, was fired at the victim's back as he was running away.

Mrs. Morris, established the age of the dead man as 33 instead of 35, as previously announced. She said that he left Stockton between 1:30 and 2 a. m. Sunday on a business trip to Bakersfield to contract labor for tomato picking.
