PAGES 7 TO 12 1 1 AIN TOTAL PASSES LAST SEASON'S RECORD OF Kern "One. of 'Few Districts Not Having Protective Ordinances, Aver a» ' •• •__ BOARD HEARS SYMMES W.ould Prohibit Picking of Rare Varieties Found in This Section T O MAINTAIN the wild flowers of .this county, wjilch have on numerous occasions been described as the greatest tourist attraction Kern has to offer, the Board of Su- '•pervlsors Is considering adoption Of an ordinance which will save for posterity 15 of the-rarer varieties of flowers here. , Today the Board of Supervisors •was showered with communications from' practically every ulvlc and club organization In the county, advocating adoption of the ordinance. There was, BO far us has been reported, a unanimity of opinion favoring the proppsed ordinance. Kern Exception In a brief address to the supervisors, .E. J. Synimes asserted that most of the counties In the state having wild flowers have protective ordinances with Kerti being tho one notable exception. iWorklng with Mr. Symmes to ob- talif this ordinance Is the following committee: Lawrence Welll, Norman Thompson, Lyman Benson and Ralph Thnyer. The proposed ordinance would not prevent the picking of the commoner varieties of wild flowers, but would protect some 16 very rare varieties indigenous to this country nnd found In the more remote mountain districts and rarely on the floor of the valley according to Mr. Synimes. It Is also contemplated In the proposed ordinance, that the decoration of automobile radiators would be prohibited. Mr. Symmes said the ordinance would cost the county nothing and would tend to preserve the flowers as a tourist attraction. Every year thoi}- tiands of persons come Into the county to view the wild flowers. Their economic value to Kern county Is perfectly obvious. ' Desert Holly Taken The speaker cited as one Instance the fact that commercial companies are transporting desert holly from Kern county to the south In truckloads, the holly to be used for decoration. Other counties protest this desert, holly leaving Kern the only one opep to the commercial decorators. Without such an ordinance Mr. Symmes predicts the ultimate extinction of some of the rarer varieties of flowers -which are not becoming quite scarce in the county. Supervisor Charles Wlmmer spoke sympathetically In favor of the ordinance jvhlch will bo referred back to the board at a later time for a vote. * «» ANCIENT GAS-BUGGIES ARE PRIMED FOR SUNDAY RACE I N HALF the back yards cf Kern . county, automotive h««-beens are haying their -adenoids removed, their wheezes eradicated and their blood pressure reduced to normal, judging from the entries pouring In upon B.
