Added highlight of this week's labor sen a ion was the passage o.f a resolution opposing proposed wago cuts for city employes.

"We believe tliat wago cutting should tf* the last resort of uny employer, public or private, -as no hope for recovery can come from decrease of, workers' purchasing power.

"We wish to point out further that the' Huvingn from wapo cuts will result "in negligible reductions in tax bills, out of all proportion to the harm which will be done to the business life of this city. "We believo that substantial savings to taxpayers can be made In other ways, without detriment to any em- ploye or citizen. In this connection Wcj. wish to point out that eventually the city must tuni to public ownership of the public utilities as a means of increasing its revenues and decreasing, household expenditures of cltl- t zens, - - . "We urge comprehensive ;study of the tax and governmental cost problems, rather than indiscriminate cuts in pay or services."

Clark, 42, automobile dealer who was killed Sunday when his car struck the rear of a truck on Union avenue three miles south of Bakersfield Pallbearers will be Elvin J. Cook, R. R. Jackson, Herbert Sears, Paul Dabbs, Monroe Harmon and" 1 Kenneth Freeman. Interment will be in the perpetual care plot of Union cemetery. Coroner N. C. House conducted an j informal investigation today. There were no eye-wltnesncs to the tragedy. The * dealer's automobile struck the rear of the truck and his chest Injuries received in the impact brought about his death, the coroner said. Headlights of an approaching automobile, it was believed, cnused him to misjudge the distance between his own vehicle and the truck ahead. Belief that his neck was broken or that his brain had been pierced by the windshield wiper proved groundless, surgeons said. The driver of the truck and Paul McCune, member of the California Highway Patrol who investigated the crash, offered statements during the informal hearing.

Daniel, deputy labor commissioner *at Bakersfleld, "Attorney Johnson of the labor com- mlHsIon head office at San Francisco,'* said Mr. Daniel, "has just held In the case of. a miner who was employed by a promoter who agreed to pay him $3 a day if gold was found, and nothing otherwise, that the employer violated particularly that section of the wage laws requiring payment of wages twice, a month and in negotiable check or currency. Law Irrevokable • "Employes may not waive their rights In a case of this kind," explained Deputy Daniel, "as a law pro- tecting'the public such as this wage law, cannot be set aside by joint agreement." The labor commission's opinion is that any employer who thus falls tn pay wages regularly, offering to pay If the venture, whether mining, crop, business or other activity. Is successful, clearly makes an illegal deal with his employe, and on evidence thereof, Is subject to prosecution criminally; the maximum penalty on each count being f$00 fine, aix months in Jail, or both. Ethical Aspect "The ethical aspect of this Interpretation," Mr. Daniel added, "is that many employers .in these times are taking advantage of conditions to get work such as ns«ABsment work on mines, done without paying a cent of wages, using as an alibi that profitable production did not result. . "The labor commissioner will prosecute such cases on complaint, where wilful Intention IB shown, and nil employers now using this method of hiring are hereby warned so that they may either pay wages twice,a month as required by law or discontinue the practice otherwise." ^ g ( C.

B i Is Hotel Gossip * * Local Brevities G ROSS receipts of $13,250 and a total net profit of $1739 accrued to students of Kern County Union High School who undertook home projects under the Smith-Hughes agricultural program during -1032, it was revealed todayfin a report completed by H. K. Dickson, head of the agriculture department, and filed at state headquarters of agricultural education. The report covered the work of 77 high school boys 'who carried on home projects In beef nnd dairy cattle, hogs, chickens, sheep, vegetable gardens, nurseries and field crops. Iteturns were excellent, according to Mr. Dickson, keeping In mind tho generally poor market conditions which prevailed throughout the past year. Dairy cattle proved the best: Investment of the year, returning more than half tho net profit of nil the projects combined. Hog raisers were hardest hit by tho "loan year." Profits Reported Twelve boys <TwnIng 23 head of registered purebred cows, either Guern- seys or Holtttotns. received gross returns of $4498 and a profit of $103fi. tho report showed. Their source of revenue was In the wile of whole milk to neighbors and In the Increase of their herds, the boys generally Helling their bull calves as breeding stock and keeping their heifers. An exceptionally high standard of dairy cattle IH being Introduced to Kern county through the high school agriculture department. The K. C. U. IT. S. laboratory farm herd, which nerves as a foundation herd for the young dairymen, hoH a number of cows which produce* more,'than 500 pounds of butterfat yearly on regulation twlce-a-day mil]clng, v and this strain- (R in turn carried Into other herds through sale of calves by the high school boys. Beef projects Eleven boys, fattening C2 head of beef cattle for sale at. San Francisco and • LOB Angeles, as well an local markets, received a total of $8124, including amounts received for sale and premium won by the animals. Their profit was $231. Most-of tho boys fed their beef cattle over periods ranging from four to eight monthR, depending upon which market they were Intended for.. Tho Htdck was fattened to a large extent on feed grown here In Kern county, barley, cotton seed, alfalfa, oat hay, plus some beet pulp and molaHset*. Continuing work In a field of animal hUHbandry established at the K. C. U. H. S. agriculture department in M19, 21 boys were engaged In raising pure- 1 bred Poland China hogs. Hales totaled $3798, but due to a severe drop in prioe, tho net profit amounted only to $145. Kern Record Fine Tho statewide reputation for high quality stock attained by the agriculture department'In the past was maintained nnd even carried further afield, ns far as .South America, and the local boys will bo In readiness for the turn of the tide toward higher prices. By resorting to unusual sales methods In an unusual year, nine; boys who raised 59 head of sheep, namboutllets and HampRhireu, were able to take a profit of $209 out of grdsn receipts of $1333, despite the low price of wool. By special arrangement with an eastern mill, the sheep raisers were able to have their Wool manufactured into blankets directly, without the'intervention of a "middle man," then proceeded to Hell the blankets. By this procedure, tho boys netted approximately 20 cents per pound for their wool, as compared to the prevailing market price of iO cents. Sell Fryera, Eggs Sale of fryers and eggs brought receipts of $503 and profits amounting to $117 to 15 boys engaged In poultry projects. Their record books show a total of 1712 birds owned by the high school students. A comparatively small group of boys undertook Individual projects In a variety of other fields such as vegetable gardens, nurKorles, field crops, etc., and finished the year with small but comfortable margins of profit. Mr. Dickson, in connection with the release of the report ,for publication, made clear tho point that the Smith- Hughes program covered by the report la only one part, approximately a half, of tho total agricultural department activity here. h Reports on Legion Meets to Be Made IQHWAY travel throughout Kern county, with the' exception of the lowland. arteries, was considerably curtailed today although no snow-had fallen for aev. •ral hours, a survey made by the. Automobile Club of Southern California, stage companies and highway officials revealed. Snow plows operated by' the,, highway department had cleared the Ridge route of Ita white blanket, but f reeling temperature* coated the highway with Ice and made chains a virtual necessity. Stages over the' Ridge were approximately an hour behind ached* utea. Tehachapl route ia reported open but chains are advisable. Heavy snows made the highway slippery and treacherous. Cara are still trying to get into the Walkers Pass area without success, but It was expected the road would be open by tonight. Similar conditions prevail tn the Greetohorn district.

Those who have had the|r registration * canceled should also reregister as there Is a state election In L prospect, according to the clerk, who Issued the following statement: L Many Not Registered "AH there Is the' prospect of a county-wide election being held shortly, It ' will be necessary for till thane who have not registered nlnce January 1, 1932, to reglttter, and those who have removed to another address to reregister, and it IH also necessary for aJl thone who received a card notice from this office to tlio effect that their registration had been cancelled, berauNe they had not voted at tho August or November elections, last year, to register." Mr. Smith yaUl his office has sent out notices to all persons who failed to vote under terms maintaining their registration. The poHKlbtlity of a state election In tl>e near future IH deemed far from remote.
