SEEK DARING AUTO DRIVER Two Cars Will Crash Head-on THRILLS BILLED *FOR RAGE L IKE a page torn from the records of a suicide club reads a want ad In tht classified columns of The Bakerafisld Callfornlan today. If you're tired of the depression: "Wanted—Single man to drive an automobile In a head-on collision with another, automobile, In connection with the Congress of . Daredevils at the Bakersfleld Fair, grounds Sunday, January 29; must stay with car and crash at speed • of 40 milts per hour, and give unconditional release In case of Injury or death; already have drlvtr for other ear; name terms. Write B. Ward Beam, general delivery, Bak- ersfleld." The advertisement also carried an addsd thrill for the general public, for It revealed the plans of Beam, eminent eastern promoter, to bring hit ^Daredevils' Congress her* In connection with the motorcycle race* previously announced for January 2t. The "congress" 1 during the times It has bten staged In various sec- tions of the country has drawn caustic comment for. Its foolhardl- ness from some of the most noted writers of th,e day. And foolhardlest of the foolhardy Is the stunt for .which Beam today sought a driver. Asked If he really expected that anyone would make application for the job, the promoter declared he expected not one by several applications. "The drl.vers really have a good chance to come through the s,pec- tacular stunt alive,'! he pointed out. "They are allowed to use any protection they want, such as padding or crash helmets; but they receive no pay unless they crash directly In front of the grandstands at a speed of at. least 40 .miles an •hour. The cars will b* 'standard makes, both of approximately the same weight. AM glass Is removed. "Nothing to get alarmed about— much. It's only on* of the thriller? planned for the Congress of Dare-' devils."

Otis "Poppa" Clark, bald-headed negro whose name has been associated often with the slaying, testified for the state, and named the Taylor boy as the one who fired the shots. Mrs. Rallback, according to Clark, was holding her brother when he started firing a "little automatic." She fell after the first shot, rose to her feet, fell again and remained prone on the floor, he testified. Dodges Bullets "Did. you know the direction of the bullets?" Defense Attorney Abrahms asked. "No, sir!" the negro witness •cplled, "except that two of them came mighty close to me!" "Were you drunk?" he was 'asked. 'Well, not that night," was the reply. Horace Dupes, the investigator, In iffliand conversation .reported that 'Jemmy" Holland, an old nogro, was shot In the right le« by one of the )ullets. That leg, however, was a wooden one. Approximately 11>0 negroes packed Judge Magee's courtroom. TEST OF UN WATERWABIE Farmers using pump water Hhould lave it analyzed If there Is any ques- lon as to, Its effect on crops, N. D. Hudson, assistant farm adviser here recommends.^ In arid countries such waters may contain injurious amounts qf soluble salts. For the most part Kern county waters are of good qual- ty for Irrigation. There are, however, some wells scattered, through :he Irrigated districts which produce an undesirable type of water. "We also have In Kern county several fairly well defined areas within which the water sources are polluted with boron, chlorides or other In- lurlous chemicals. An extreme case n point Is illustrated by an analysis recently received which showed enough of each one of several different suits to 7inike the water unfit for irrigation use," he wild. "It Is not generally realized," he continued, "that quite often the water may be entirely suitable for drinking nnd washing purposes and at the same time harmful to plants. In fact, hard waterw, complained of By the houne\vife, are usually much more suitable foV Irrigation than those which aro soft, due to tho presence of sodium salts. Of course, pure water Is soft and is also good for Irrigation." Continued use of harmful water may cause the land to bec'omo valueless, Mr. Hudson' stated. On threa large properties In tho county, bad wells have been, abandoned because of the duniago to crops, better water has been obtained, and recovery is in progress. Frank Jeppi and Allan Peairs were awarded first place In the contract section, and George Buckingham and Charles Foethorlnglmm of McFnrland were winners of tho auction division, when tho first annual Kern county bridge tournament ended last night.

ERE are no social or color -*- lines at the Kern county work camp where 300 men are being fed ant? sheltered dally In exchange for a few hours of labor. White, yellow, black and rod, the men of various , colors and nationalities mix easily, for the prejudices of normal existence are forgotten when life settles to the basic principles of food and shelter. Men of all ages; from 16 to 70, aro at tho camp. Muny of the youths, garbed 111 better clothes, would gracu a ballroom. Some of tho older men, with sartorial and tonxorlul service, would make splundld motion picture characters as bankers,' lawyers, physicians or members of some othur profession.

One Japanese There Is only one representative ol the yellow race at the camp. He Is n sick Japanese, and members of a local association havci made arrangements to take i-are of him. There are u couple of Indians, many negroes, and more than two hundred white men.

City, County Profit The men work six hours each day and receive tickets enough for three mealH. Yesterday, according to Superintendent Hal Cirlffls, the men die fllOO worth of cleanlng-up work. The work Is of such nature It is not competitive and does not keep local unemployed from, an opportunity to labor. It Is work which the city or county could not afford to do now but still it is worth a lot of money to tho community. During tho leisure hours the men road books and magazines donated by kind-hearted Bakersflcld citizens They "boll out" their clothing, eu one another's hair, shave, tell stories or listen to the radio given them bj Wltham & Booth.

(Spcatal to The CaHfornton) . "\ELANO, Jan. 19.—Jack Keefe, 51-year-old employe at the Albert^ •*-' Scheltlen ranch northeast of McFarland, was seriously injured late esterday when gored by "Caesar," giant thoroughbred Holstein bull vhich he had teased into insanity. The bull threw the helpless ranch Corker, over a fence four times and toseed him into the air twice before Is crippled victim could escape. At the Delano Emergency Hospital oday, where Keefe IB being treated, it was reported that the principal luscle of the right leg was severed, and that the femoral vein in that 1mb was-exposed by the'enraged animal's slashing horn attack. One more thrust of the beast's sharp horns, it was believed, would have cut ho blood vessel anjl brought al-'v' • nost instant death to tho ranch vorker. In addition to the muscle and p eln wounds, Keefe suffered bruises n the right side of his body, the lack, left leg and arms, and was hocked by his tcrrlblo experience. .UaclicB at the hospital, howuver, icld some hope for his recovery. • Keefe Warned Keefo brought his trouble upon hlm- elf, according to his employer, for ho lad boon warned not to tease the iull.

Again tho hnplews worker waa thrown over tho fenco and the act was repeated once more.

Assemblyman Claro Woolwtne declared today, after vlow- ng conditions In the prison. The statement was made In Snn Francisco, . "The building Is in poor Khapo, ventilation Is bad, and tho prison hospital Is overcrowded," he said. "If tho women are not moved soon, so their quartern can be utilized for men, I'm going to recommend un appropriation for a new prison hospital." Woolwlno accompanied Senators John B.

MANY SEEK ADVICE LI Increased demands for agricultural extension service are reported at. tho farm adviser's office here. During 1032, 3194 persons In this oounty called upon the farm advisor nnd his aides for assistance. The year of 1932 found 93,612 individual persons called at the farm ad- I vlser's office of the state for assist- j ance and of this number 3194 wore j made In Kern county. i The Increasing demand for tho KBIT- I Ices In Kern county Is Known by tho fuct that In Ifl29 only 1.178 persons railed at the office and the number lias coiiHtnutly Im-roiiHcd until 1932 when a total of .1184 Individuals called for assistance according to M. A. Lindsay's report filed with tho United .Statue Department of Agriculture,. Washington, D. C.
