At present Kern county has approximately GOO farm JulicirerK from Mexico. According to X. G. Lepper, supervisor In charge of the War Kood Administration In Bakersfield, the Mexican national farm project lias proved a complete SUCCCKS in this country. He said that the workers who come here on a signed contract, which ranges from a time limit of four to nix months, are helping the farmers a. great deal in the labor shortage problem. TrainJoad after truinloud of the nationals have been brought into this country to help save the crops that have fed not only the United States hut the entire world. Agriculture is not the only America n industry tlutt has profited by the importation. Railroads throughout the west have and are employing the Mexicans in an effort to counteract their increasing manpower shortage. Excellent Workers .7. II. White, chief clerk at the Santa Fe Railway Company in Buk- crsfielcl, says the men have proved to be. excellent workers, and although relatively few of them speak English, some have made marvelous accomplishments towards bettering themselves and gaining a higher ricgree of education. He said that most of the workers are employed in the roundhouse. Approximately HO workers are now at the Santa Fe roundhouse and 22 are expected soon. Mr. White explained that applications for the workers are made through the central office in Los Angeles and In turn the J>os Angeles office makes arrangements with the Mexican government through the War Manpower Commission. It was pointed out by the United States Immigration office in this city tint the workers are not allowed to bring their families with them. If the family wishes to visit for a short period of time, a visitor's pass Is issued, however, this practice is not encouraged. If the national mar- j r WHOLE-GRAIN OATMEAL LEADS ALL CEREALS IN VITALITY ELEMENT PROTEIN rirs a citizen of this country, he mny apply for citizenship papers. However, unless he is a permanent resident, no applications may be made, it was explained. Housing Facilities Housing facilities are furnished by all employers of the Importees, H. T. Strong, assistant Kern county farm adviser, pointed out. He said that before growers may request Mexican help, he must have provided all the housing needs. He also' added that workers in some areas are employed only during the peak season. In this county, they are helping throughout the entire year because of the even rotation of crops in this region. Worker* Recruited The workers for agriculture aro recruited in the southern country by representatives of the United States government. Since September, 1942, when the borrowed labor program was begun, more than llfl.iJOO workers have crossed the border of the United States to aid in producing the food of America. The program is administered by the United States department of agriculture. The railroad program was started in May, 1943. Under this agreement more than 40,000 men have been shipped out. Carrying on the recruiting work fo rthe War Manpower Commission, which handles the railway project, is the United States railroad retirement board. Recruiting for agriculture is done by the representatives who go into the small Mexican villages for volunteers. After the worker has volunteered, he is run through the process of section, fingerprinting examination, photography, and preparation of immigration papers and the work contract. Before the contract is signed, the workers are always given an explanation of the rights, protections, and obligations to which they commit themselves. Examinations Given Examinations are given in Mexico City, where the nationals are put on trains and sent to the United States. Mr. Lepper, ythe local AVFA head, said that there ia no central California distribution office. The workers are merely dropped off at the locations that have applied for them on the Journey up the state, it was explained. Mr. I*epper addefl that the farmers make applications for the workers through the WFA. Transportation Furnished If, for some reason or other, the worker wants to return to Mexico before his contract has expired, he must pay his own transportation home. Otherwise, the United States furnishes all transportation. States included in the program are California, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, "Wyoming and Colorado. 13. T. Smith, chief clerk at Southern Pacific, declared that some of the railway workers are doing semiskilled labor. He said that S. P. employs 740 nationals in this division. Rate of Exchange One problem still to'be solved Is the upset of the Mexican economic system as a result of the great amount of money the workers in the United States are sending 1 home to their families. It was pointed out that the value of the peso in relation to the American dollar lias been upset tremendously by the high degree of exchange.

I9o GRADE Points Wo Carry a Full Una of Lunch Meals SHERIFF WARNS REFUSE HAULERS CARS ON LOOKOUT FOR CITY VIOLATORS laving rubbish blown from uncovered refuse-haullng-trucks strewn about the property in the La Cresta- Skyline areas is certainly not fair to the residents in this district," was the opinion voiced today by John E. Loustalot, Kern county sheriff, concerning the conditions caused by the negligence of the rubbish haulers. Sheriff Loustalot said that there are patrol cars constantly on the lookout for violators of the county ordinance No. 369, which requires all vehicles carrying- refuse to be covered so as to prevent any rubbish from falling to the ground. Special emphasis is being put on the fact that not only are the truck drivers allowing part of their loads to blow from the vehicle, but some are dumping in unauthorized places instead of the location set aside for this purpose, it was explained. According to Clifford F. Baughman, deputy health officer of the Kern County Health Department, the situation has become so acute, arrests are now being made instead of the previous warnings. Already 11 have been given 30-day suspended sentences on charges of violation, with the warning that if brought before Judge Frank Nor- eiga's court again, the accused violator will have to serve his term in • * i jail. Those sentenced Tuesday were: J. J. Brown, 1025 O street; Al Matzenbacher, 716 Castiac street, Oildale; W. A. Ballard, 1600 K street, and L. S. Cross, 530 Goodman street, according to court records. There were five more cases heard by Judge Noriega Wednesday, Mr. Baughman said. I MATCHES FROM BOMBS MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 10.
