Between 1939 and the End of 1943, the 'Average Gross Earnings of Industry and Retailing, in the Bakersficld Area, Increased Over 600% During the Same Period the Salary and Wage Increase of the White Collar Class Was Under 15%; Why? It is not because management does not want to pay salaries and wages, in keeping with the increased cost of living, but because Franklin Delano Roosevelt won't let management do as it wanls to do. When you applied for your present job, you wore looking for a livelihood, reasonable security, a chance for interesting and creative work and recognition of merit, in terms of gradual promotion and appropriate wage increases. Your employer was looking for intelligent personnel, which had initiative, enthusiasm and a desire to be more than a pay roll number. Everything was line—you had a job, your employer had the person he wanted, and the road to the future seemed clear. Then came Pearl Harbor and War. Jobs by the millions appeared, and wages for certain classes of workers necessarily rose to high points, but not in your class. .You, the backbone of American commercial life, were left holding the bag. Mr. Roosevelt, who never met a pay roll in his life, and who never had a job in his life, FROZE YOUR WAGES, although your living costs have increased tremendously. Mr. Roosevelt feels that even a dollar raise in your hands is dangerous, but he unfairly discriminates against you, by allowing necessary and substantial raises in other classes of employment. Why docs he pick on you? It costs you as much to live as it docs a craftsman. Your Employer Wanls to Pay You More Money Roosevelt Won't Let Him It's Time for a Change VOTE for DEWEY Advance Gifts Pour In for West Side War Chest Drive TAFT, Oct.

Charging that the farther east one goes In the states, the greater the misunderstanding of our western problems, Houser touched upon a growing movement by the people of the east, for a negotiated peace with Japan, when Germany surrenders and the territories in the Pacific lost to Japan during the first six months of the war, are recovered. Speaking of the plans afloat to return the Japanese to the west coast, the lieutenant-governor said, "If the Japanese come back to the western coast, internal strife, rioting and bloodshed will result." In speaking of centralization of power, he denounced government subsidies and said that the powers • that had belonged to the states, counties and cities, had gradually been taken from them and concentrated in Washington. "A crusade should be started," he concluded, "to bring these powers back from the federal government to the states and counties and cities where they belong." Kenneth Prutett, chairman of the luncheon, Introduced Lieutenant- Governor Houser and his party which included Mrs. Houser; Assemblyman Thomas "VWcrdel of Bakersfield; Mrs. Albert S. Goode, cochairman of the Kern county Houser committee; W. F. Barbat, chairman of the West Side Republican Club . and Miss Margaret Kahler, campaign manager of the club.
