(Speoia.1 to The Californian) ACRAMBNTO, Jan. 4.—Holland •A;. Vandegrlft," state director' of [nance, has inaugurated, a movement to request Congress to return he Navy Department's great oil eserve No. 2 lands in. Kern county ack to the public domain. ' . ' The , property, situated In the Vest Side 'field "of Kern county, vlll bring 'an income of more than 160,000 annually to school funds, If rapsferred from the Navy Department's control to supervision-of the department of the Interior, Director Vandegrif t has estimated.' He • has sked the asBlstance of Representative Henry E. ^Harbour of Fresrto, and Rep- esentatlve Clarence F. Lea of Santa Rosa. Expresses .Doubt • Representative Harbour, .in answer o the state finance director's request, eported that It Is doubtful If the resent Congress wjll change existing lollcles of government. Director Vahdegrlft's written request o Representative Barbour was: "In considering the entire problem >f the finances of the state of Call- ornia, I have encountered an Item which Is of considerable importance to he state. This do with trans- erring the lands within the Naval Pe- roleum Reserve No. Z back to .the lubllc domain, under .the jurisdiction f the seoretary of, the Interior. "In the matter of dollars and cents, even under curtailed production of oil, existing at present, the state would secure for Its school fund from 1150,000 to $200,000 per year. When this field Is brought Into full production and 37i/ 2 per cent of the amount paid Is allocated to California, the sum will be Increased many tlmea. ' "This transfer, would result In an economy for the federal government >y eliminating a duplicating administration. _, , State .faces Oeflolt ...-. "You, of coursa, recognize that' any matter • which -IncrbaBes: the' 'Income of the state of California -during this depression- is of particular Importance right now, when the state' of Callfor- ila Is faced with a deficit.for the next )lennlum of 'approximately $60,000,000.. ... . . , . . "For thpse reasons, may.I call your attention to. the enclosed memorandum and 'attached inup which covers the natter quite fully." .. • . • "Democrats are- In'• control-. of the House now,'.'. Representative Barbour wrote Director.' Yandegrlft, "<u)d.r'are not disposed to 'promote, bills chang'- ng policies^ but await. the Inauguration 'of th<ftr~6wn administration on Vlarch t." The .matter could be wrought to the attention of the. new House when' trie' anticipated special session is called after March 4, he reported. ' .-' ,. The legislator pointed out that it was under , the Interior department's supervision some k years ago, < that the nasty oil scandal r whlch 'rocked the nation was Incepted. Lands Set Aside • Dr. George Otis Smith, director of the United States geological survey and apostle • of production • conservation for decades, was the moving flg- jre In creation'of the oil reserves. The ands were.set aside to assure a plen- :ltiil supply of'oil fuel for the United States navy In.time of war." Under, the' present'-, setup, Kern county, the .state of California and the navy department do not share In any financial benefits resulting' from development of the district.' The naval .reserve ./No.- 2, was created by executive order!" December 18, 101Z," and was created because naval petroleum reserve Np. 1, In Elk -Hills, was considered, of doubtful value. The Efk Hills • field', however,' has" proven to be the most prolific, and because of. the solid block of government, lands, the greater part of this; field' be maintained as a naval petroleum re- serv^, if desired. ;•.,.. To Avoid Drainage A map of, naval petrpleum reserve No. 2 reveals that government, holdings are'widely scattered and that -all patented and privately owned .lands within the reserye are In the hands of private individuals. Furthermore, tho map shows that all tho productive government lands have been'leased,to private parties to avoid drainage and loss of oil.' « Vfindegrift believes that vast areas In tho reserve remain undrllled unO undralned and that "If these lands are not turned back to the public domain, all the operators on government lands within the reserve-must drill and produce to their utmost to remove. as much of the oil as they can within the first period of tho leases." "This being the "case,", he concluded, "privately owned lands would be drilled upon to avoid drainage by the government lands and would lead to another flood of .oil, which can be avoided by the-legislation proposed.' , „ i ''•'«'» '.

City, County Police Groups Should Consolidate in Opinion of Experts KERN COST PROVES HIGH Report Reveals Per Capita Expense Reaches $1.97 in This District C RIME costs Kern J1.97 annually tor every man, woman and child n the county, and this expenditure could bo greatly reduced by the consolidation of city and county police functions. Such Is the startling recommendation of the crime prob- ems advisory committee, created >y the last Legislature, and whose research representatives only recently completed their survey In this county. The committee, headed by Holland A. Vandegrlft, state director of finance, showed • a total cost of crime for all counties, UN represented by the expense of police, sheriffs and other protective departments, of $12,600,000, as compared with receipts from flues of $1,800,000. Visit All Areas In order to obtain accurate data on tho cost of crime, the commission's esearch workers, Tllrlmrd Graves nnd 'Toward Gardner, of thu liuraau of pub- ilc administration, University of California, made personal trips Into all tho counties and major cities of tho stato. They found, for example, that the average per capita cost of government- for all counties Is $67.99, while the average per capita cost of crime for all counties is $1.96. Other recommendations of the commission were: • • •: That wherever • practical from the standpoint of criminal law enforcement the police agencies In cities and counties be consolidated ...LO a metropolitan or district police. That wherever centers of population In different counties are liot too far, apart, and' conditions make advisable the erection of n new Jail or entabllHli- IIIR a penal farm, two or more neighboring counties join In the undertaking and share the costs.
