The penalty period formerly was January 31. court action the cases •*- of 163 children .were attended to In this county through the probation officer, and outside of official court action the office made "adjustments" In cases Involving 1467 children In this county, according to the annual report of C. M. Johnson, county probation officer. There has been a marked decrease in the ijumber of grammar school children Involved In delinquencies, which he attributes to the fact that these children have been given closer attention . than In previous years In that people have organized playgrounds and helped keep children busy and interested during their leisure hours. Mr. Johnson accounts for the fact that children older ithan those In grammar school are committing delinquencies, due to their inability to secure work. 1 Serious Problem Juvenile departments throughout the jiatlon are now confronted with the serious task of handling Itinerant boys and girls who are now living nomadic lives In the nation. It Is believed that, there are now more than* 200,090 of these children roam- Ing over the nation, a condition similar to the beggar' children of Russia j during the days ' Immediately after ' the revolution/ ! "The existence of growing hordes of wandering boys has lately become known to most of us," Mr. Johnson said. "These boys and girls are not 'bums' but rather ,the result of excess of family groups, youths over 15 years of age, who, with no working conditions open to them, find themselves liabilities at home due to changed standard of living. They, therefore 1 , find themselves in conflict with home. They are unwanted wherever they alight. The danger to these boys and girls and the danger to the communities of this developing class Is a grave one and should occupy the attention of every serious-minded citizen. The problem of these boys and girls must be made a part bf the program of the community for the protection of the health, morals and security of the children. We must provide for them food, clothing, shelter, and recreation,- and meet the spiritual and cultural needs If we are to save them from drifting Into the ranks of the criminal class. Aid Requested "People ,of Bakersfield and Kern county should ever be alert to guard against boys and girls of the teen age running nway from home. We JQvenlle officers and other law enforcement officers of Kern county were asked many times during tho past year to help locate some Kern county boy or girl who had become dissatisfied and left home," he concluded.

RESEARCH WORK BRINGS BIG SAVING FOR KERN GROWERS CURTAILMENT of exoeeslve cultivation, based on experimental test U plote and research of the extension service has resulted In a saving In operating expenses to Kern county farmers amounting to $217,500 during the last seven years since these Improved practices were recommended, according to' figures released by M. A. Lindsay, farm adviser. Field trials have proved that less cultivation did not reduce the crop 'yields while It did appreciably reduce the overhead expenses, according to the farm adviser, < Farmers during the last decade, with the disparity existing between the prices they have obtained for their produce and the prices they have been forced to pay for retail articles, have had to utlllie every scientific expedient available to cut down their operating costs'. TREE PLANTERS PLAN TO CLOSE WARNED OF PEST Much of Kern County's Soil Nematode Infested, Says Assistant Adviser With prospects for fruit growing slightly more hopeful, Kern county growers are beginning to plant trees, according to N. D. Hudson, assistant farm adviser, who calls attention to the fact that much or the soil hero, as in most warm countries; la Infested with nematodcs. So far tho only rpotstock for fruit trees known to be resistant to this pest Is the apricot, Hudson said. For this reason, peaches and plums especially should be on this root. Many failures could he prevented by adoption of this practice. The apricot la not the best rootstock for these fruits on clean land. Growers who are sure that they have clean land not Infested with nematodes can do better by using other rootstock, Mr. Hudson stated. Information concerning the best stocks to use Is available at the Kern adviser's office, 107 courthouse, Bakersfield. With normal recovery in general conditions Kern growers who plant fruit trees now will find surplus troubles . less severe when their orchards come Into bearing," ho continued. In recent years plantings of deciduous fruits have been very small, and not sufficient In the case of many varieties to replace the old two which are going out. Then, too, there has been quite a little removal of orchards. When the Outlook report for California Is Issued In mid-February, It is expected to indicate several types of fruit trees whose planting would seem advisable on the basis of past nnd present production trends. Some of the crops In which surplus has been heaviest such as cling peaches, are likely to be on this list, Mr. Hudson said.
