Councilman Alfred Siemon, appointed \ last -week to confer with WPA and city engineers and an Bast Bak- orsfleld Progressive Club Committee, f said ho had become convinced that . although the project would benefit t .private property owners, It was • - worthy of city funds because all East Bakersfleld would also benefit. AKERSFIEUD'S roaring Frontier Days celebration will begin auspiciously tomorrow night when the Coirtimunlty Theater presents that heart-gripping drama of gold and ghouls called "Gold In the Hills," or the "Dead Sister's Secret."

Councilman Sollers led the opposition on tho ground that the city hod undertaken the project with the understanding that the property owners, who have advanced $8000, should bear the entire cost, and that public funds should not be used for private benefit despite the fact that since the project waa approved lost winter, a new WPA ruling bos increased the cost. Siding with Mr, Sellers was* Councilman Smith. Mayor Wilson asked Mr. Siemon to delay his motion for using the $4300 until next week pending further study, which was done. The city budgeted $10,000 as a fund to meet its share of any "WPA projects for which it might apply during the year. City Manager Fred Wi Nighbert reported $5700 of this hns already been alloted to a street repair project now in progress. Aid to Traffic By! ^covering the canal tho Bast Bakersfield residents hope to allow the business, district to expand northward, relieving congested traffic conditions near the railroad tracks, •Councilman Kamlnski argued, and this would benefit the entire district. Ray T. Buriim, assistant city attorney, reporting on an ordinance submitted''by local cleaners to provide a code of fair competition for their industry, said that the cleaners 1 attorney had agreed that certain i'ea- ' turcs would bo held unconstitutional and that without them tho ordinance would bo of no value. As no alternative bill was presented, tho matter was tabled. After lengthy discussion of measures governing circuses, carnivals and parades, on motion of Mr. Sollers, an ordinance prohibiting such ontertkinment from appearing in Bakersfield between August IB and October 1 was repealed. This dates from tho years of tho county fair r and was intended to prevent competition, but there is nothing to prevent a circus from locating Just out- nido the city limits and, although - harming the city's streets, operating beyond city control, Mr. Sellers pointed out. Previous Discussion 'On motion of Mr. Siemon, the city manager and attorney had previously been instructed to prepare, a new license ordinance governing circuses, carnivals and parades. The discussion was precipitated by tho recent appearance of Cole Brothers circus, to which the city refused a license. Supervisor Jay A, Hinman was present and said that although there is a county license ordinance providing a fee of $150 a day, this was not collected. W. H. IULLOS IS GIVEN JAIL TE To Serve Year's Sentence as Result of Conviction on Bad Check Charge W. H. Tullos of Bakersfield was sentenced to servo one year in tho county Jail by Presiding Judge Er- wln W. Owen who denied tho motion of Attorney W. S. Marks for a new trial. Tullos was convicted here last week on a charge of having issued a spurious check. ''The court Is convinced of your guilt," Judge Owen said. "The jury recommended leniency and without that recommendation I should havo se"nt you to San Quentin penitentiary." Court Puzzled The courts was puzzled, according to its own declaration, over the caso of Tyler Page, a handsome young man. Pago pleaded guilty to having taken a car without the owner's consent and with having committed grand theft by the same action. The young man refused the prof- erred services of an attorney and declined to make any application for probation. What is more ho pleaded guilty to both charges though they had their inception In tho same circumstances. It not infrequently occurs that a defendant will plead guilty readily as charged in order to forestall a more detailed investigation of his record with Its attendant consequences. In this instance, however, the district attorney's office aald no past record against Pago had been- disclosed. Sentenced to Jnil Judge Owen sentenced Page to servo nine months in the county jail and ordered that tho sentence run concurrently on each count. Tho court today appointed Attorney Donald Kendall to represent Augustus Weaver, an elderly man, on a morals charge involving a young girl. This case was continued until October 6 for arraignment. The trial of J. T. Adams, accused of having driven an automobile whilo intoxicated, waa set for November 17. Attorney Edward West will defend Adams, who, In an automobile accident, is alleged to havo injured Mrs. Georgo Bahrenberg. Kornaehon Trial Set Trial date for Jano Fornachon, accused of having murdered her husband, Victor Charles Fornachon, 41. has been changed from October 0 to October 33 at the request of her attorney, AV.

"DLANNED as ono of the most colorful events of the many scheduled for Frontier Days woek, a great Midnight Jamboree featuring Hollywood celebrities and a host of other entertainers has been announced for Saturday night at Fox Theater. Doors of the theater will open at 11:30 p. m. and music of many varieties will bo played up and down the aisles until midnight, when tho popular JDIck DicUson, winner of last year's silver-mounted trophy, will take charge as master of ceremonies.

TV/ITH the registration of Miss " Aileen McFaddon, a Junior student from Idaho, tho total enrollment in the Bakerufleld plant of tho Kern County Union High School and Junior College District reached 4000 this morning, it waa announced by H. A. Spindt, principal. This represents an increase of approximately 210 students over last year. At Shafter High School, tho registration now totals 224, an increase of 10 per cent and at Mr- Parian d there aro more than 140 students, an Increase of U5 per cent over lawt year's enrollment. Plant Crowded Concerning the Increased enrollment, Principal Spindt said today: "It Is my earnest hope that tho Bakersfield plant will not bo required to house, more than 4000 students for any great length of time. The only possibility then to take care of further IncreaaoH Is by the construction of a school tn East Bakersfield to house either some high school students or tho Junior college Htu- dents. As was announced sometime ago, an architect has been employed to make studies for such a building." Growth Kxpected "The probability is that growth of both high school and Junior college will continue for at lea«t five yearn moro even though there be no further increases In population In thin district. The reason for this is that tho classes down oa far as the fifth grade are as large, or larger than previous classes up to that age. There Is every probability also that the population of the district will continue to increase bringing with it Increases In the number of high school and Junior college studentH. Under these circumstunccH tho board of trustees Is faced with tho of moro building Immediately. are now being made as to how Much additional building can bo financed." ^.^••••••^.•^•••••.•^••^•••''il m*\m*^^^^ i i .,—^.- , COMMANDERS TO BE PHDHONOIIS Birthday Also to Be Fcled at Meeting of Harold nafitatantn In their i-cwpoctlvo W/"ITM "ylppees" and vrhlsttlng " by irrepressible WhlskerlnoB evident over the microphone.
