PIPEFULS (Thursday. October 10, 1044) —Air Corps Photo Technical Sergeant Barrett Freels On December 7, 1941, the vicious tearing sound made by the high cyclic rate of fire of airplane ma- chineguns ended Barrett Freels enjoyment of his breakfast as he sat at a table in his regimental quadrangle at Schofield barracks, Hawaii. The Pearl Harbor attack was in progress and the Japs, after sinking a big part of our fleet flew over the infantry barracks and strafed the buildings and personnel. Now Freels. a Bakersfield boy, is home on the mainland for the first thne In five years of service in the Pacific during which he won the Bronze Star Medal. This decoration was awarded him while assigned to G-3 of the Tanah- nierah bay landing force with the Twenty-fourth Infantry. Kills Jap The first Jap he killed however, gave him more reaction than the medal. This is how he describes his experience. "I was on my way up a trail to the HollancliH airdrome, througli an area our infantry had bypassed in taking the 'drome,' " he said, "when a rifle cracked off to my left,, something whizzed by me, find- I looked and saw two Japs, just ducking into the underbrush. "I was carrying a carbine and I had to aim and fire fast, because thnge Japs can move as quickly as Jackrabblts. I got one bewteen' the eyes at 100 yards, but couldn't be sure of the other, for by the time I cou)d switch my aim to him, he had disappeared into the brush. I pu:uped a few shots into the foliage for luck, but since I \vus carrying an important message, 1 couldn't spare the time to go looking for him." Donald Foust While Donald Foust, of the navy, was on active duty at Guadalcanal, an officer son of Premier Tojo of Japan was killed in the action there. The American servicemen gave him burial and an appropriate monument, though they did not go into detail concerning the monument, according to Foust's report. Foust, whose home is at Fellows with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Foust, has had 37 months duty in the Pacific. He w^is on one of our warships at Pearl Harbor during the attack there. Oddly enough at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack he had planned an airplane ride with e-olonel Kofahl. another Kern county man. Needless to write they never made the trip. Don was in the big Coral seas battle, at New Caledonia, Guadalcanal, and Bougainville. He had recuperation periods at New Caledonia and New Zealand. Most of his battle service was on destroyers. Now he is home at Fellows on a 30-day furlough. C. H. Landau C. H.

Reverend Morgan Tells of England's Courage, Faith By MAE SAUNDERS Movingly told by an eyewitness to England's darkest days during the present World War when for 21 months "England stood nlone against the evil that meant to enslave the world," the story of British courage and faith was brought to a large throng, Wednesday night, at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Canon Reverend Edward Morgan, fellow in the Royal Geographical Society of England, was the speaker in the church that'-he built here and following his address, ho was honor guest at a reception when he renewed acquaintance with many friends botli in and out of the parish. Standing within the church he built, he brought to his listeners the message that Christian ideals must pel-severe throughout the world and what England fought for will unite free men in the world of peace. "There was one thing we had during our darkest days, our faith never failed. We believed our cause a righteous cause and we were confident that it was God's cause. The British Commonwealth was ready to fight to the last man, last woman and last child." The church leader traced the steps of conciliation taken by Neville Chamberlain whom he described "Not a great man, but an ill and dying man, a sincere man," who really believed he had secured peace for his generation, being unaware of the perfidy of Hitler. Few persons have told as well as this speaker the indomitable spirit that moved the English people at the call of their king to rally to their standards and to set out in rowboats to rescue their defeated troops at Dunkerque. "We never would have withstood those difficult days without the leadership that turned to God and without the little man who had been pushed aside and who was without a cabinet position for 15 years, that little man who promised us nothing but blood, sweat, toil and tears." The speaker paid tribute to the great kindliness and sympathy of Americans that came to England, even before America's entry onto the war through lend-lease. "Those first 50 destroyers saved our people from starving," declared the speaker. On Freedom's Side "We fought on freedom's side, the road to peace and freedom and a world made for God," said the speaker in emphasizing tile great and noble sacrifices that Americans now have made along with the British in losing the young men of the nation in a war. The speaker solicited the individual dedication of every individual to the greatest and highest impulse that he possesses in the building of the new world dedicated to God, freedom and Christian ideals. The visiting dignitary was introduced by the Reverend Ralph Cox, now pastor at St. Paul's. Music during the brief service and singing of hymns was supplied by Mrs. Laura Nichols at the organ. At the reception, the tea table was centered with a massive bouquet of lovely roses flanked by white candles in silver candelabra. Among the hostesses arranging the evening were: Mrs. Percy Neate, Mrs. Wallace Pack, Mrs. Glen Stanfield, Mrs. Bert Covell and Mrs. Meredith Brooks. Two Named in $5075 Damage Suit A suit for $5075 damages charging malicious prosecution was filed yesterday against Malcolm Brock and Alfred Siemon by John F. O'Neill.

Rebinding of Books' Described By BARBARA BECKETT Rebinding of books in order to Increase the time they may be kept in circulation was described today by Mrs. Alice Cooke, head of the processing department of Kern county library system. "Many new books In the publisher's bindings are not very strong, and after a few months are returned from the various branches very much the worse for wear," she said. "New books are bound for the buying public, not for library use," she added. Books returned are re-selected to determine those worth re-binding. Some books, not worth the expense of re-binding, are mended and some are discarded, according to Mrs. Cooko. Re-bound books give an average of five years of service, in comparison to the average four or five months for a new book, she stated. The purchase of bindings, with stocks facing exhaustion at the present time, 's a difficult matter, but the Kern County Library planned ahead for the present crisis, and will be able to take care of the county collection of books at least during the present fiscal year," Mrs. Cooke said. The six employes of the processing department prepare books to be sent to the binders, check them for missing pages, and select the most worthwhile. Books must have class A certified binders approved by the American Library Association, according to Mrs. Cooke. All new boofcs purchased by the library are catalogued and prepared for circulation in the processing department. Since July, 1724 rebound volumes have been returned to library circulation, only 10 of which were rejected because of unfltness for binding, Mrs. Cooke said. iu I'boto AIR MEDAL—The Air Medal has been awarded to Second Lieutenant Gordon B.

SALZER OPENS DRIVE FOR POST SUPERVISOR CANDIDATE ISSUES STATEMENT Opening a vigorous campaign for the office of supervisor from the Fifth district, Charles Salzer, longtime resident of the district, declared the outlook favorable for his election in the November 7 election. "The majority of the people," asserted Mr. Salzer, "want nothing from their elected officials except honesty and intelligent government. That Is what I have promised them and it is the only promise I have made to anyone. "I do not believe, a candidate can promise anything more and still be honest with himself and with his constituency. I entered the race for supervisor of the Fifth district with this idea uppermost in my mind and enough people thought well of it to vote me into the general election. I believe that there are sufficient residents, desirous ot good government in the county to vindicate that faith." Mr. Salzer declared he has waged and will continue to wage a clean campaign. "I believe that a man should be elected on his own merits and not on the faults of his opponent," he said. Mr. Salzer will conduct his campaign from his home, 505 G street, where his headquarters will be located. A.veteran of World War II, Mr. Salzer obtained invaluable practical and administrative experience in the production department of a large oil company. He is young enough to have a progressive outlook, yet experienced in both the science and practice of administrative affairs. He is a property owner in the district he seeks to serve and has been a resident of the county for 22 years.
