LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 2G, 1933 PAGES 9 TO 16 PREDICT NEW STORM TO BOOST RAIN RECORD FUND CAGE GBEXPECTEO TO Seating Capacity Increased at High School for Big Weck-Eiid Tills U. C. L. A. FROSH COMING To Play Renegades, Drills • to Help Charity Budget of Lions Club Charles P. Martin to. Serve H. E. St ubbs as Secretary at Capital of bleachers which •*-* will increase the Heating capacity of the BakerBfleld High School gymnasium to 1200 persona began this afternoon under the supervision of Ernest Dalbom, director of .athletics. Basing their predictions on the rapid advance sale of tickets, Lions Club officials reported that the gym would be packed for tlie two charity basketball Ramos to be played this •week-end, with the U. O. L. A. freshmen meeting the high school Drillers In the main event tomorrow night and lulling on the Junior college Renegades Saturday evening:. Seeking funds for continuance of the charitable work which It. has -carried on for the past 10 months, the Lions Club Is bending every effort toward a complete sell-out, It was reported at the*' regular meetlnf of the club yesterday. Milk Provided The local organization undertook the task of providing milk for undernourished children In April of 1982. Since thut time H has provided for between 300 and 350 children monthly and has distributed a tptut of 13,500 quarts of milk. In order to raise money for the milk fund 1 , the club first distributed milk ! bottles to Bakersfleld merchants In order that their customers might drop small change In the containers; Later a night baseball game was sponsored for the benefit of the fund, and still later, a rodeo, which again gave momentum to the charitable work. On the other hand, demands upon the club's resources have constantly increased, according to G. 12. Stowc, chairman of the milk fund committee. Investigators bring In many reports of families living in small quarters, without light or heat and. with Insufficient food and 'Clothing. In several Instances it has been found necessary to furnish more than milk. Avoid Duplication Requests for aid are checked by members of the Lions Club w.lth the Central Welfare, Committee In order to avoid duplication in distribution of supplies. Those aided arc almost wholly local families, many of whom were well-to-do before loss of employment due to the depression. The purpose of the milk fund primarily,' Mr. Stowo states, is to care for children of school age who are not reached by other relief organizations. At a meeting of the basketball committee, headed by I. C. Olsen, this week,' it was decided ,to put' on a mock basketball game between halves 'of tomorrow night's game, advertising the next Lions Club rodeo. Under the leadership of Judge Allan B. Campbell and C. Fred Baker as team captains, two teams, of "basketball players" in cowboy regalia will take the court and do their basket shooting with "six-guns."

C. Pred Baker presided at tho meeting 1» the absence of William IS. Patrick. D. K. CJoodo and Hay Henderson reported on tho midwinter conference of Lions Club meeting In Fresno last Saturday. Entertainment was furnished by a saxophone quartet, arranged for by Prank Lowe, program chairman. China New Year Observed Today in Quiet Manner Lacking the noiiy cracM* of great firecracker dragoni and the bizarre street banners : and lights of other year*, quiet festivities In old and new Chinatowns of Bak- ersfleld last night celebrated New Years eve and ushered In China New Year. "Kung Ho Sun Nan," the equivalent of the English "Happy New Year," was heard on oriental lips, but that the new year Is not as happy as others have been v was attested by the lack of jubilance In the Chinatown celebrations. The war In China, with Japan storming at the Great Wall, and the process of modernization, reports from all Chinese centers on the coast Indicated, were having a dampening effect on the holiday, which will continue for a week. The eldere, In quiet fashion, still observed the turn of the year, the ' tenth of the seventy-seventh cycle, or year number 4630, but most of the younger generation gave It only passing attention.

AND POTATO OF COUNTY GIVEN Predicts Little Change in Acreages During 1933 Season GREET SERVICE MEN Ex-soldiers nnd former snllors are not barred from attending meetings of the Veterans' Luncheon Club, accord- Ing to Skipper Tom Carter, even though the. marines "have the situation well In hand." .James Ryan, one-time "leatherneck," conceived the Idea of forming the club In 1828, for the purpose of allowing former service men to meet once, each week und recount trench tales. Ryan was elected the first skipper, nnd other marines have held the post since that time. Skipper Hyan was followed by Frank E. Smith, and then Floyd Dunliip, and now Tom Carter. "Even though the marines keep tho upper hand, soldiers nnd sailors can belong to the club—If they behave themselves," Skipper Carter promised. When the club meets Friday noon upstairs In the St. Francis cafe, Attorney Howen Irwln nnd Detective A. E. Cook will match oratorical ability for the entertainment of the veterans and their Invited guests, Skipper Carter reported. Glendale Services Are Held for Baby Funeral services were conducted yesterday in the Little Church of the Flowers lit Forest Lawn Memorial Park In Ulendnlo, for Shirley Joan Toel, 2-yenr-olU ihiughlur of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur U. Tool, who died at a local hospital following an attack of jiiiomnonln. Interment followed in the mausoleum ut Forest Lawn. B UT little change is indicated In the potato and onion acreages for this year, according to M. A. Lindsay, farm adviser of this county, who also points out that "the purchasing power of the public has not Increased and therefore we cannot expect very much of an Increase in the demand tor potatoes." The potato crop in 1932 was about 2 per cent smaller than In 1931, ho said. The average yield for 30 states was • 10ii.fl bushels an acre. This county's yield Is far greater per acre. Sweet Potatoes "Sweet potatoes, the potnto of the south, piled up a 25 per cent greater supply In 1032 than In 1931. In nddl- tlon to the sweet potato situation, reports are now coming forth to the effect thnt many people are drawing on their homo garden supply that was stored this last fall from their 1932 gardens. This accounts for the considerable decrease In the demand for potatoes nnd has resulted In approximately one-third less of potatoes from the western potato storage bins," Mr. Lindsay explained. "It Is too early at this time to predict what Is going to 'happen In the onion growing but tho 1932 condition should be clearly understood by all growers. "In 1932 acreage was 13 per cent greater, than 1931, according to final figures that have been compiled. The average yield per ncre was 364 bushels and was the highest yield per acre since 1918. The combination in the increased acreage and Increased yield resulted In n total production of 20.482,000 bushels as compared with approximately 13,000,000 bushels for the year 1931. Heavy Storage "Stocks on hand were estimated on November 1 to equal the total yield of 1931 or 54 per cent of the 1932 crop still In storage. The examination of tho western states Indicates Tin unusually heavy storage as compared with previous years," he concluded. In connection with cutting seed potatoes the farm adviser had a bit of advice to offer Kern growers. "Cutting seed potatoes two weeks before planting nnd then keeping them under the right conditions to cork over will bring about earlier germination, more growth and Increased yield," he said. Seed will not decay If kept at a temperature of GO degrees nnd a relative humidity of 87 per cent. Hent of seed rooms can he raised by oil stoves nnd humidity increased with wet burlap sucks. After cutting the seed should be placed In barrels or sacks and should not be spread out ns they do not cork over properly with this practice. Besides her three brothers, parents) Hlohard, she leaves Daniel and David Tool. Mr. Tool has been an employe of tho Southern Pacific Company In Uake.rsfleld since 1915.
