HEROIC TEACHERS Editor The Bakersfield cailfornlan: Your report of thrilling experiences suffered by a party of-young people who a few days slrioe became snowbound near Mount Breckenrldge recalls to my mind most vividly a few Incidents of the fearful blizzard which raged on* afternoon throughput the midwest states during the winter of The* storm broke/loose about the time children Were being dismissed from the rural schools. It had reached very serious «nts became alarmed ... their children and sought them on horseback, afoot, in vehicles, sleighs, etc.. thus saving many from terrible suffering or death from exposure to the fury of the elements. Two incidents of that storm, because of their similarity, received particular attention by the Nebraska press reports of the storm. Two rudely constructed school buildings In that state (50 miles apart) found the two teachers of those schools with a half-dozen or more pupils left on their hands after parents had removed the rest of the full complement. • In each case the supply of fuel was very low; the force of the storm was Increasing, making- it imperative that whatever plan of relief was adopted must be put into operation at once. Miss Shnttuok at one of the schools a—" Mlhs Freeman nt the other secured a short .rope, tied the children to It and sallied forth in the hope of reaching the home of the .child living nearest the school;' to take refuge there for the'"nlRht If they must, or KO forward with the others If they could. ' , They had proceeded but a short distance when the teacher realized they would soon sink from exhaustion and cold, So she headed her charges, to a nearby strawstaok, selected the most sheltered spot and with her hands pulled out straw at the base of the stack to form a nest for the children to lie in, freezing her hands to the point of uselessness In dolnc so. The youngsters lay down there and the teacher first covered the children with loose straw; then she removed her.heavy, warm coat and spread It atop of the straw, and. as If that noble act was not a veritable personification of self-sacrifice, her sense of duty and compassion for those dear children moved her to disrobe still more and cover the little ones with what she removed. Lastly she stretched her body across them as u final means of protecting them from the biting cold; Thus were they found next morn- Inc. Some of. the children were badly- frozen, but nil made a practically complete recovery. What I-.have said In the one. case applies with equal force to the other;' and what was the plight of those teachers? They were removed to a hfixnltal in their respective locations; there they went- to operating* tables; one suffered the loss of both hands and both feet and the other lost one hand and both feet. ' Not a winter passes by that we are not reminded of the Innate > sense of devotion to duty possessed by u largo ico. m •m H NEAR FRESNO go proportion of our school teachers din- played alotiR the lines 1 have mentioned or In heroic deeds performed in clt" schools which take fire and Jeopardize tho lives of inmates.

Editor The Calllornlan: A few days ago. there appeared in the columns of The Bakersfleia Call- forolan a short news story headlined "Citizenship or Jail,!.' proclaiming the fact that two foreigners) hud 'been arrested for misconduct and pleaded guilty. Whereupon they were sentenced to 180 days In* jail, sentence suspended on condition that they apply for citizenship. Now. It has always been my impression that the acquisition of cltlzen- uhlp in the United States was considered a privilege* and not a punishment. 3f the .ludiclary of this country were to follow the justice's precedent what a law-abiding • citizenry we would have In a few years! One' can hardly conceive of anyone In a place of authority placing 'such a low value on American citizenship as to use It as a punishment for tin offense against decency. Think of it! Undesirables punished by a command to acquire cltlzonshln. The greatest Individual Rlt't^ln the power of our country — a protection which we guard and fight for forced upon undesirable foreign offenders — the alternative being six months in jull! Born on American noil, child of a naturalized citizen, I consider my citizenship In this great country my most priceless possession and It seems to me any\ citizen of this country whether by birth or acquisition should resent this slur upon the standard of our citizenship.
