THE BAKERSF1ELD i FRIDAY, JANUARY 6.1933 AS ROOSEVELT TURNED OVER GOVERNORSHIP Governor Breaks Previous Records in Exercise of "Mercy" i United Press Throned Wire) SACRAMENTO, .Inn. 6.—Governor Rolph broke nil previous records in Hie state by pardoning 248 prisoners during his first two yenrs in office, It was disclosed In the governor's pnrdon messnge to the Legislature today. During the same ptrlod 15 eon. vlcted murderers were hanged, 6 at Folsom and 9 at San Quentln prison. This number would have been considerably greater but for the fact that the governor Issued 54 reprieves and 33 commutations.

Thus Wolmar, city of Goethe and Schiller, and where the republic's national Assembly met after the revolution of 1918 to give the country a new con- etttutlon, has preservett its onion market. • » It Is held annually in October In much the same style as it was held 200 years ago, as a folk festival rather than a market day. At early dawn the first covered wagons of the farmers arrive,. bear- Ing loads of onions of all size, color and description, with a few bundles of horseradish and strings of garlic thiown in for good muasure. ..The farmers arrive from afar, from the districts around the mythical Kyff- haeuser mountain, miles and miles away, thence Weimar has • supplied its need for onions for centuries and Is still doing so. The farmers, too, still'are coming the long distance, although Ithe growth of Industrial centers nearer, their homes .would suggest more convenient markets. Onion'market at Weimar Is'held on thq Schiller Strasse, the former Esplanade, normally a quiet, dignified thoroughfare. There are no stalls or vendors' tents. The farmers just dump their loads on the pavement, waiting for the buyers,-who soon, appear'. • ' ' Mojave Miners Are Backing Confidence With Equipment turned into Union 76 anti-knock qualify again increased 189 cubic centimeters per gallon ISAMEHKEr-ERCAUOHi ; % v X v , < V 'CHART SHOWS COMPARISON or ANTI-KNOCK RATING OF WESTERN GASOLINES JANUARY J»»J '"T'HREE TIMES since the introduction of JL 76 a year ago (January 1, 1932) its effective anti-knock octane rating has been improved.

WATCH FOR THE 76 not only stop knocks and smopth out motor operation, but increase power through decreased engine temperatures and the harnessing of more waste heat. New 76 is also the most ECONOMICAL fuel you can use. Because "pqunding" is stopped, wear on bearings, wristpins, valves and other engine parts is greatly reduced, minimizing engine repairs. Oil life is lengthened because there is cleaner combustion and less free gasoline passing the rings to dilute crankcase oil. Added MILEAGE is secured in direct ratio to the waste heat turned into power. The price of New 76 Quoline has not been increased. It's today's greatest gasoline value. Try it.

CHANGES IN POLICY PLANNED BY ROCKEFELLER CENTER HOUSES (A undated Press Leased Wire) N EW YORK, Jan. 6.—M. H. Aylesworth, president of Radlo-Keith- Orpheum, . confirmed reports today that a change in policy is to be made in the two huge theaters in Rockefeller Centre, which were opened only last week. He denied that the four-mllllon-dol- lar RKO-ROXT, a ( combination picture-vaudeville house seating 3700.per- sons, would close, as published reports had snld. He stated, however, that> changes In policy would be effected. ' The Dally News said today that following last night's performance at the RKO-ROXT, notice was posted that the theater, which had its gala opening a week ago tonight, -would close January 11. The announcement of the closing was credited to Bill Stern, manager. The Aylesworth statement said thnt Radio City music hall, seating 6200 persons, would change from its two-a- day variety-spectacle policy to a com- bination of pictures and vaudeville, running continuously. ' He did not'say what the policy of the RKO-Roxy would be, but said it would, be a "new type of entertainment adapted to the more intimate character of that theater." It has been the contention of S. L. (Roxy) Rothafel, director of entertainment for Radio City, that the RKO-Roxy, despite its great seating capacity, is so arranged to make possible "Intimate" entertainment. Aylesworth planned to confer later with Roxy, who has been 111 for several days, on the policy changes. In the first week of their operation both theaters, he said, had shown no loss. The RKO-Roxy, however, had been the more successful of the two, he said. Its gross for the first week was $70,000 as compared with $112,000 for the music hall. The laUijr, however, has a much greater operating expense, and for that reason, according to the RKO president, the RKO- Roxy, with a -smaller gross, made a more satisfactory showing.
