Butter Shortage Explained RAISE IN PRICE NEEDED TO ENCOURAGE MORE PRODUCTION In an answer as to why there Is a very small amount of butter on sale for civilian consumption was given today by A. S. Ooodc, manager of the Peacock Dairies. Mr. Goode said that the reason for the shortage is not because the commodity Is going to the armed forces, but because of the low wholesale ceiling price making it impossible; for dairymen to produce without a loss and with no profit whatsoever. "Alost of the dairies In the Tuited States have slopped hotter production entirely." the dairy bead pointed out. He added that they are producing condensed milk instead. According to Hans Beck, manager of the Danish Dairies in Fresno, in an article printed in the current California Milk News, "If wholesale ceiling prices are not raised 20 cents, it. is impossible for men in the dairy business to make any profit at all and the butter shortage situation will continue." QUIKT TITLE A complaint to quiet title was filed today by Alice K. Howard against Charlefl A. Kutt and others. The property in question is located in the city of Delano, lot I!, block H7. SHARING between the SHEARS By MAE Arc Hakersfield landlords bard hearted? Families with children are being shoved aside In preference to childless covipies. Not all children are destructive of property and there are parents who keep good control upon their children. People with families are part of a community. The families are the groups that make a community prosperous. The family men are those engaged in business, industry and they form a large part of the army personnel. The family is an integral part of American life and persons with rental property should acknowledge their financial obligations to the family group. Were it not for the supplies the families buv In Makers- field, tile needs of the children, there would not he the demand for housing here. .Many houses would stand empty If family people had not built liak- ersfield. .Some of Bakersfields renters are now homeowners. Some of those owning rental properties were once renters themselves. If they had children, there was not always the rule "no children and dogs allowed" attached to Bakersfield "for rent" ntens. Along with the obligation that landlords should feel to rent to couples with children, there should he responsibility of renters to accept full responsibility for the property they are renting and make proper restitution for damages incurred. Most property owners know that rent money does not always cover the serious damages SALXDKRS to walls, floors, furniture and fixtures that parents could prevent if proper control over children were exerted. One landlady said, "I have found that an average family with children is more desirable as renters than a couple of adults who may be together temporarily in a temporary living arrangement. Office workers who rgnt a house frequently dissolve their partnerships and are not nearly stable as married couples with families. I have found children in such families not nearly as destructive as adults whose parties are not conducted after the manner recommended by Emily Post. As a landlady I prefer families^ but unfortunately my place is always full and I cannot accept the scores that comes to me because they know my policies." It is time to rennovate thought in connection with American family life and now is the time to make a place for it in Bakersfield. Bakersfield can grow and benefit from encouraging families to stay hero and make their homes here. One way to do it is to take the "no children" off rental signs.
