The fourth recommendation, co corning elections, met with considerable opposition. "It would eliminate the Democratic principle upon which the organization was founded," C. V.

A., said, and the discussion was continued until .the next meeting, Protest Propoial Sentiment for consolidation of the C.; C, A. and the Merchants Association, which has gained considerable support • in the last few weeks, was target for the fifth - recommendation. The C. C. A., the committee repo'rl stated, would lose Us Identity If consolidated with another organization. Each Institution, the committee felt, has, separate function's to perform In the city, and would not dovetail In operation. Malcolm Brock, merchant, was n guest at the meeting and discounted possible advantages of the consolidation move. He la president of the Merchants Association of Bakersfleld Hugh Curran proposed the consolidation, Members of the directorate-took the recommendations under consideration '.and will discuss them at the next reg- • ular meeting, 6RHN NECK CAUSE DEATH Term of "Ten Years to Life" Imposed 36 Hours After Bakersfield Holdup Ted Pyles, 31, was sentenced to serve "10 years to life" In San Quen- tln prison today, by Presiding Judge Alan B.

Stlnea shot the Dooleys following a quarrel over some hay and his use of a road on their property. Stlnes was accused by the state of three counts of felony: Assault-' 25 Per Cent Increase During 1933 Forecast for San Joaquin Valley Twenty-five per cent Increase In cot- tori planting for the Han Joaquin val- .ey this year, and possibly a greater increase was predicted today by Harold L. Pomcroy, manager of the Farm Bureau -Cotton Planting Seed Distrib- uters. Kern county will participate In the Increase, .Mr.. Pomeroy -believes. There were 35,000 acres In Kern county producing cotton during the season lust ended and 124,000 acres In the valley. The valley produced about 126,000 bales, according to the crop reporting service. The Increase will be dun to: • First, the favorable season last year with most growers "doing" much better on their cotton than other crops. 'Second, Inability of farmers to get a cash return or make even slim prof- ta on otl^er crops. . , ; Seed Cost Cut' Price for registered planting seed For the' 1933 season has been cut to (37 a ton or a-reduction, of $13 a ton under last' year's price. This reduction, according to Mr. Pomeroy, has been brought about through an arrangement with the cotton finance agencies. Henceforth the seed will be available at the'followlnK gins: All of the San Joaquin Olnnlng Company gins, .Producers' Cotton Oll-.Cpm- pany, C. A. Webb gins, Camp/West He Lowe gins and the San Emldlo Oln- nliiff Company. - , ' ' There are registered seed fields this year In each of the cotton-producing regions of the valley -from Arvln In the south to LOB Banow In th« north. Practically all of these fields aro yielding In excess of one and. one-half bales to the acre and soina are -yielding more than two bales. . . C!hu> handling this seed are cleaned and inspected before the' run to "remove any traces of other seed. Uniform Crop Marketing agencies this year reported the 1032 crop the most uniform In the history of the valley and the easiest cotton to market because of Its uniformly good quality., Due to the succexs of the registered seed It Is reported that 85 per cent of the acreage of the valley has been planted with seed not more than three years removed from the original seed of the federal experiment stations. This year's crop was harvested . In rf»-ord time. The registered seed matures early and • favorable weather conditions speeded the process. The new type Acala was used. TNVENTION of a Bakersfield man J- who for years has been directing road coat research work with a view to reducing coats, promises to revolutionize the road building include try, it was teamed today. The Invention is the sub-olltng, sub- watering and road planing machine and Its designer is H. A. Ingalls. The machine accomplishes in one operation what many more expensive methods fall to accomplish at all—the creation of a deep, lasting base and a uniform, smooth surface. Experts point out that all oiled- road builders arc trying \f> Bet grantor depth of oil mixture or penetration. Some transport tho entire mass to a central plant for treatment. Others mix on the ' ground, which Involves the necessity of working the liquid Into the earth. NAMES OF 39 STUDENTS TO Three Methods With the Ingalls machine throe •*Services- Saturday for J. E. Russell Funeral rites for J, H. Russell, Bit, who died suddenly at Hobo Hot Springs, will be conducted Saturday at 2 p. m. at the Fllcklnger chapel. Interment will be In Union cemetery. Rev.

Campbell on January'13, Pleads Not Guilty to Burglary Count John A. Olaeta, accused of having burglarized a cabin at McCormac's Camp Ground, pleaded not guilty to the charge today before Presiding Judge Allan B. Campbell, and his case was set for trial on January 17. methods of getting the oil deep Into the bed are available: Long, hollow teeth pierce the earth like hypodermic needles; oil can be deposited behind a disk or It can be spread by* tho runner or corn planter method. The Ingalls method l» wild to develop a uniform surface "superior to a rolled surface, as a roller bridges a soft spot every time It hits a hard spot, experts declare. • In an Interview, today, the Inventor explained that "by drilling oil deeper and. developing- a surface with traffic and a' road pinner we have reduced the cost of secondary roads to such a point where such structures should be used as a subgrade for all t'ypes of paving. None of the roads we have built this, way," he said, "shows any breaking-through of the type found in the surface of oiled and thinly paved roads. Explain* Teite "We find that roadbeds deeply saturated with water and then oiled before the Water has dried out develop remarkably quick. "Oil field superintendents have often directed us to build o road In 48 hours through a plowed field Hint would ntand heavy duty, and wo were able, to render that service. In other words," Mr. Ingalls declared, "In two days we get a structure as deep as an old stage road, which takes years to develop. "By putting the liquids under the surface, obviously we get 100 per cent efficiency, using oil as a binder and not as a material. There Is no loss by evaporation, run-off or track-off. "Subwaterlng destroys all duet cushions and enables the oil to pass through the mass sufficiently to form n complete bond. The particles being damp prevents excessive oil saturation and as the. water dries out under traffic pressure the oil takes Its place. Oil being the lighter, comes to the surface, absorbing dust. "With this system there Is no •wrinkling, which obviates scarifying the surface." Expense Leisened With California spending more than »25,000,000 annually In road repairs, those Interested In tho Ingalls machine point, out that his method of treating subgrades would make these millions available for new work, repairs being unnecessary, Under present pluiiH, tho Inventor proposes to sell the rights to manufacture and use /he. machine to the different states, They can be manufactured In any shop cheaply, he said, und can bo hooked up to uny tank truck. This will enable the operators to adapt the inuchlnus to varying conditions.
