Shearer, rr>mnnn;indant of the Bak- orsfleld High School Cadet Corps, highlighting the afternoon a luncheon meeting of the Bakersfield chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was held at 1 p. m. Saturday at Hotel El Tejon. Major Shearer, who also instructs physical education at the local high school, told the group of the training given boys enrolled in the military organization. He pointed out that complete reorganization has taken place since 1041, in the effort to better the training of prospective soldiers. "I believe that lark of respect of elders and lack of discipline is one oC the main c'auses of the juvenile delinquency problem," were the major's words. The military instructor's address was the first in the series of talks for the D. A. R. group in keeping in lino with this year's theme, "New Trends for American Youth." An afgan, marie by Mesdames S. L. Albaugh. D. E. Gilbert, Homer Rogers and Miss Ada Hopkins, was shown the gathering preceding its transport to the Red Cross.

R. is this year urging the sponsorship by California chapters of a morale building project for men stationed on the LCI-L59S, which was sponsored by the California D. A. R.

Sisterhood, an opportunity to share her research project of the summer, Misa Editha Howell presented a talk on the Bucarell Agreements for the opening meeting of the chapter Friday night. The gathering was held at the home of Mrs. Chester A. Bartlett, 2224 Myrtle street, with Mrs. Archa Vest as co- hostess. Mrs. Glen L. Johnson presided. Miss Howell explained that the agreements which were a series of "conversations" between Mexican and United States government representatives held in the hope of reaching satisfactory understanding in connection with oil lands in Mexico developed by North Americans. The agreements never reached a treaty status, but gave Mexico the advantage of recognition of Obrigon's gov- eminent in 1923. A contrast between realistic Mexican diplomats and "starry-eyed" North American, was afforded. The facts of Kern county being an oil area, plus the importance of recent developments in Mexico, gave the talk a topical and local signifi cance, as well as providing a stimu lating opening for the year's theme, "Our Neighbors to the South." Announcement was made that Mrs. A. L. Kilbourne will speak on "Latin American Airways" October 27. A dinner meeting will be held with hostesses including Mesdames J. K. Thrasher, Joseph Smith, Laurance B. Nourse, Jules Rachal, Horace Strong, Emmett Henley, Glen L. Johnson, Thomas L. Nelson and W. F. Sprinkle.
