LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, WEDNESpAY, JANUARY 25, 1933 PAGES 7 TO 12 THRONG 111 LEAVE GRAMMAR GRADES FRIDAY CITY OR COUNTY FARM URGED BY ' SIApFFICIAL Manager of Free Employment Bureau Offers Plan to Assist Jobless WALKER VIEW OUTLINED Vegetable Production Upon . Idle Land by Idle Men Suggested Here A PLAN for furnishing frosh Teg- fl etables to the unemployed residents of Baltersfleld during the coming season, at practically no cost to the community, Is the suggestion of H. L. Walker, manager of the state free employment agency at Bakersfleld. "Idle labor, Idle men and Idle seeds can all work together to give congenial employment to a number of people, with reasonable profit, by taking: n tract of unused land and with seeds furnished by the city or county, putting" a variety of vegetables In this spring. The labor would not be compulsory; those residents of the city who desired to could contribute their labor from time to time at their convenience, receiving a credit slip for the number of hours worked, entitling them to receive the value of their labor In vegetables which they may choose as needed later. "Thus they would not be paid In scrlr^, but In credit shares, the difference being that the wage laws would r.ot be violated as they would be partners In the enterprise rather than employes. ''A great deal of malnutrition, particularly among children, would thus be avoided. The workers would not be cursed with the stigma of charity, but would have a self-respecting, useful Job—better by far tha~h sheer Idleness." Mr. "Walker added that this would not conflict with the community garden of the Salvation Army. The state free employment agency, he said, would be ready to co-operate '»u handling- the bookkeeping and tret- tine the.,jnen .together. If land -and seed and other necessary articles are contributed. CRASHES WALLS AT TOP SPEED T HE most hair-raising, spine-tingling- stunt in America today was added to the program of the congress of daredevils and motorcycle races •which next Sunday will open the 1933 sports season at Bakersfleld's world- famous speedway. Signing of Speedy Babbs, motion picture stunt king, to ride a motorcycle through a double board •wall at a speed of 70 miles an hour, was announced. Babbs has performed the stunt before. Sometimes he has been painfully hurt and other times escaped without a scratch. The wall through which he rides is constructed of two thicknesses of 1-Inch boards on a frame of two-by-fours. When he crashes Into It at full speed on his sturdy motorbike It Is reported to be the thrill of a lifetime. Something has to give and thusfar It hasn't been Bahbs or the motorcycle. Persons who can't stand a thrill are advised not to attend the program for Babbs' stunt Is just one of 12 other events already signed.

"Tho taxpayers of Bakersfleld could use thai $16,000 yearly income easily," he pointed out. Potential Profit Using the "Berkeley" system aa a criterion, Mayor Harry Headon said llmt Bakersfleld, about one-third the size of Berkeley, would have 4000 patrons for a municipal service, and If each paid $1 monthly or $12 yearly for the service (the current rate), the city would receive $48,000 annually, and that the system could be operated for 132,000, thus netting a profit of 116,000. "This figure, $16,000, does not Include additional revenue to the city from salvage," ho pointed out. "In addition, there would be greater convenience to patrons v There would bo no law sulls. Tho flexibility of the new ordinance, passed last Monday night, would permit a change at any time, and In tho event such course were found necessary, a contract could be awarded at any time. Better Control • "Operation as well as the responsibility for the service would lie In the hands of city officials, and if service was nol suitable, 'kicks' could be reg- Islered easily, and quickly slralght- ened out to the satlsfacllon of patrons," ho continued. "If we award a 10-year contract now, wo would be 10 years before having an opportunity to make any desired change—and condlllons will change a lol In 10 years, while operation of the garbage collection and disposal system, the service could be enlarged or reduced, or changed, In any manner warranted b.v conditions or and representatives of the organlza- wanled by the people," he concluded, tions In neighboring dlsirlcls will be I Berkeley's municipal syslem Is a In attendance.

AA'akefleld of tho firm of AA'akcfleld & Orlgsby, buyers of cotton, and based upon an editorial expression carried In The BttkcrHfleld Callfornlan on January 17, will bo of Interest to the readers of this paper: "We have read with a great deal of Interest your editorial headed 'Menace to Farmers' in your Issue of January 17. AVc naturally expert criticism of this sort, from politicians who make their living off tho farmers, also from the high-salaried executives of the co-operallves who aro trying to make their jobs last, but not from a newspaper such as The Bak- ersfleld Callforniiin. As for as wo can 'see, the only 'Selfish interests' concerned are those of the above- named Individuals who are making their living by the 'sweat of the farmer's brow,' knowing full well that the organizations they represent aro NOT a bcnefll lo Ihe farmer. Not Farmer Organ "You say that the various co-operative organizations were 'designed' to be helpful In the production and marketing of crops. AVo feel that you have used the word designed advisedly, for while the co-opcratlvo movement was designed to be helpful to tho farmer, It has certainly had tho opposite effecl after being put Into practice. You also say that 'anything that, tends to Interfere with or destroy the efficiency of the co-operative machinery which has been developed by farmer organizations must lie detrl- menlal to agriculture as a whole.' To begin with, tho present organization of co-operatives wan not developed by farmer organizations, but by politicians, and wo might add here that tho American Cotlon Co-Operallve Assoclallon, llic cenlral and control- Ing body of the various notion cooperative as.ooclatloiiH, was organized under the laws of the state of Delaware, with an authorized capital of $30,000,000, but only $70,000 of this capital was furnished by farmers and state co-operatives. The Federal Farm Board has supplied taxpayers' money for this organization In operate on. As far as their efficiency is concerned, we do not think this word can bo applied to them at all. Practically all of these organizations use two to Ihrse limes as many em- ployes art any eolton merchant would need to conduct the same size business. Pew Belong 'Also, If tho co-operatives were such a benefit to farmers, why Is It that only about ID per cent of the cotton farmers of the United Stales aro members of this organization?" Also, the local cotton co-operatives handled lust year about HG.OOO bales of cotton, while up to the present tlmo this year they havo only handled about half this amount. Tho reason for this Is perfectly obvious, farmers have been «blc to got better prices from the cotton trade than from the co-operatives, and after all Is said and done, betler prices are .what they aro after. We could go on Indefinitely quoting you from congressional records and from statistics compiled by tho American Cotton Shippers' Association, of which we are members, but wo will not bore you further. However, should you desire any additional Information wo will be very glad to furnish It. "In conclusion wo might say that wo havo no fight with a co-oporatlvo movement or organization orgaiilzoil, financed and operated by farmers. But wo do Intend to fight such organizations formed and run by politicians, and financed by taxpayers' money. AA'o havo been In the cotton business In Bakersfleld for the past seven years, and this Is the first ilmu that wo havo raised our voice In this matter. However, wo cannot let such a remark as 'Menace to Farmers' go unchallenged," CTATE SENATOR J. I. WAC1Y of *-* Baltersfleld began bombardment of tlio county government bill at Sacramento wben be Introduced his propoBed constitutional amendment which would give back to the 58 counties of the state some super- vi&lon over their own ariairs. A supervisor In Kern for many years and a recognized authority on county government affairs, Senator AYagy has the support of the California Slate Chamber of Commerce In his fight, according to dispatches from the capital. If adopted, final decision on tho proposal rests with the people of tho state, who would votu upon the plan at the next state election. Cites "Red Tape" "At present, control of county salaries Is In the Legislature, In what. is known as the county government act," said Senator AVugy. "This moans that every time a county office wishes to adil or remove n deputy, or change a salary schedule, the Legislature must pass a bill for tho specific purpose. "Tlioro appears to be no means wboroby counties may control salaries without adopting the county charter plan. This most of them apparently are reluctant to do. "My proposal would empower county supervisors to fix salaries, of all county officers except Iholr own, Ihe counly auditor and assistants, ami Judges. The supervisors would also determine the number of deputies, assistants and other employes, which l;i now also a legislative function. Salaries of those not Included In the bill are left to the Legislature." "Clumsy System" Tho present system is clumsy and Indirect. AYnpy pointed out. Tho Boards of .Supervisors aro responsible to the people, but cannot be held accountable for the payroll, one of the largest items of counts' expense. "Pay roll adjustments may be made only onco every two years under existing law," said Wngy, "and then only by tho Legislature. During times when county expenses must, bo cut to the boni*, such as -during tho budget-making period of last year, immediate retrenchment In the cost of government Is virtually impossible."

School I '"'If F RIENDS of Superior Judge ISrwIn AV. Owen, who ban achieved nomn illstlncllon In Ihls stata through hl» poelry aside from his judicial reputation, are congratulating him on the success of a second small volume bearing the title "Idle Hours." Deemed particularly fine in this small symposium of verse is a poem entitled, "The Old Hearthslone." Judge Owen has written this verse about the hearthstone of the Curran home here with the following explanation. "Because they walked In the faith of the Golden Rule, God has been good lo them. AVIth Hln blessing they have bullded a beautiful now homo. In the garden whore stood tho home of their youth and toll they have kept the old fireplace and hearthstone and have trained tho old roso bush above it, and their grandchildren play upon It us their children played about it." The poum follows: Loved memories abide where blooming roses cling On trellises beside the old hearthstone, linnets sing Where mother' sung a lullaby. 'N'eath drooping shade Of the great magnolia tree a lilting serenade Of children's voices sent, and pensive fancy hears Laughter and merriment, across the passing years! To dreaming eyes love-lit there comes a lambent glow, And spectral blazes fill on the hearth of long ago, While childhood faces press above a thrill breast, And louder hands caress and drooping lids find rest— Blessed memories of love about the hearthstono cling, Tho old hearthstone where roses bloom and llnnolu slug."
