"DAKERSFIELD hotel and restau- •*-* rant men are opposed to the Bakersfleld City Council's plan to .award an exclusive and long-time contract for the collection and dis- >osal of garbage and' rubbish; Attorney -James Petrinl declared in reviewing the situation, and added that the proposed ordinance deal- ng with the problem is "Indefinite" and does not settle disputed points. Attorney Petrinl is the legal representative for the objecting and restaurant men, and has carried their mttle Into several' regular council meetings, and at committee sessions. Discussing the, subject today, he said: .Now Satisfied "For the present,; at least, the hotel and restaurant men are satisfied with the'present method of the collection and disposal of garbage and rubbish. They are .satisfied to leave well enough alone. If the city wishes to collect revenue they suggest that the license ordinance be amended to provide a license tax. for all collectors They believe It unwise'at this time to grant a long-time exclusive right or franchise to any one Individual, and that the situation be permitted to continue as It now exists until It becomes unsatisfactory, at which. time conditions may be more appropriate for the granting of such a franchise," he said "If, however, the City Council Is 01 th,e opinion, that an ordinance should be adopted regulating this matter, the hotel and restaurant men oppose the adoption of the present proposed ordinance for the reason that .an analysis of that ordinance discloses that It falls to make a distinction between 'garbage' as generally understood, nnc 'swill' as Including any animal or vegetable matter" which when properlj segregated Is suitable for hog feed and for the exclusion of the collection of swill from under the terms of the contract provided for by the ordinance The definition of 'swill' found In th ordinance formerly proposed Is sucl that except In very rare cases only hotels nnd restaurants would produce that matter. ' ; Four Objections "Thus the failure to make that die tlncflon gives rise to the following ob jectlonn oh the part of the hotel and restaurant men: ' • '" ''.-•" "The swill produced by the resjiau- rant men has a property -value.

"It deprives the and restaurant men of the regulation, of the collection of the swill. This, results In the collection of this matter at a time most convenient to the collector without regard to the convenience of the hotel men or their patrons and guests. This also results .In Imposing upon the hotel men • and restaurant men the duty of placing their swill In cans In places most 'Convenient to the collector rather than to them." Two Courses "Hotel and restaurant men," the attorney said, "recommend two courses for action on part of the councllmen: They are: "That the collection and disposal of garbage remain at Its present sthtus. "If It Is the desire of the majority of the councllmen to adopt an ordinance, provisions should he made In the ordinance for the protection of those who, by reason of their business, produce a distinctly valuable property right In the form of swill!"

Council Resolution The resolution adopted was as follows: ''Kern County Labor Council op-' poses emphatically any proposals to cut wages of employes of Kern county, especially of such employes as are not elected officials or heads of departments. "This council urges the representatives of this county'In the state Legislature not to Introduce, nor lend their efforts and support to any County government bill Which cuts the salary of Kern county employes.'^ "While we recognize the deslrjibll- Ity bf economical government and'the necessity of reducing our tax costs to as great an extent as possible, we elleve that cuts In wages are the east desirable way of achieving conomy In government. "Cutting of wages will have no ther result than to prolong the de- resslon by reducing purchasing ower of public employes. It will ncourage cuts by private employers nd It will conjure up a sense of fear, f further wage cuts among those workers who still have Jobs, thus en- oyraglng them to hoard their money nd making them reluctant' to spend heir' Incomes normally.
