But Even Dogs in Filmdom "Act Up" to Gain "Public" KERNVILLE, Jan.* 28.—Wanted one match and n few sticks of firewood. Inquire Eskimo Charley, care Pat Burke. It happens that Eskimo Charley Is a big malamute dog, an ex- movie actor abandoned here two years ago, due to III health. Through the kindly offices of Pat Burke and a congenial climate he has become well again. Andj Charley knows his beef stews. Frozen salmon and the south side of a walrus hide, reminiscent of the days of his youth, are Incomparable to the warming Inside influence of a beef stew. And Charley provides his own. It Is within the province of dogs to seek some discarded bone, which may be publicly displayed as a matter of course. But on a recent morning, In Broad daylight, Eskimo Charley appeared on Kernvllle's principal street with a well-mealed shank, headed In the general direction of the Burke domicile. The prosperous appearance of this chunk of beef drew a few curious remarks from observers but there was more to come. Char-' ley, having deposited the ingredients, retraced his route as though he knew what It was all about. Shortly he returned carrying a perfectly good gallon-size aluminum pot. Now, when his "ad" is properly answered, Charley will be "sitting pretty." "And to think," bewails the bewildered Pat, "I thought I had that pooch trained to do such things only under the cover of darkness." PLAN POPPY DAY FORWHAPI Legion/ Unit Forms Program for New.

He had the courage of his convictions. >Ve compare our problems to Lincoln's problems and knowing we are right, shall forge ahead, as our policy of public service Is a loug needed asset to this community. ACTION Incorporated May 2,1932, and operating In conjunction with tho Bakersfleld Community Mausoleum dedicated In April, 1928, the Dakersflold Memorial Park, Inc., Is engaged In a program, destined to expand present facilities and give to the people of Bakersllcld and Kern County, a combined funeral and burial service, to'be known as "THE COMPLETE SERVICE PLAN." A LARGE EXPENDITURE OF MONEY The program calls for tho expenditure "of a large sum of money for the erection or acquisition of buildings and for the purchase of equipment, to include a Funeral Parlor, Chapel, Crematory, Mausoleum and Columbarium; also for developing a Perpetual Care Cemetery, In which special attention will be given to the selection, reservation and dedication of sections for all Patriotic, Fraternal and Religious Denominational organizations. CREATING A MILLION DOLLAR MEMORIAL Completion of the Bakorsfleld Memorial Park project will give to Bakerslleld and Kern County a "MILLION DOLLAR MEMORIAL," amply financed and endowed with adequate Perpetual Care Trust Fund, to stand for all time as a fitting tribute and "HOME OF MEMORIES" to—those we have loved long since, and lost awhile—whoso remains are entombed, inurned, or Interred therein. KEEPING PACE WITH HUMAN PROGRESS Answering a demand and meeting a need, the management of the Bakersfleld Memorial Park, Inc., has made careful Investigation covering the subjects of Funeral Directing and Interment Projects and has learned that the two crafts can and should be combined, to better serve tho needs of our people at a lower cost, thereby keeping pace with human progress. THREE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ANSWERED Out .of this Investigation, th« result of three years careful study, has come "THE COMPLETE SERVICE PLAN"—a simple and definite solution to the three most Important, questions now confronting the American people, in connection with tho burial of our dead: ARE BURIAL COSTS TOO HIGH? CAN THEY BE REDUCED? CAN BURIAL PROJECTS BE PROTECTED AGAINST NEGLECT AND DESTRUCTION? COMPLETE SERVICE PLAN EXPLAINED As Interpreted by the Bakersfleld Memorial Park, Inc., "COMPLETE SERVICE" means—taking charge of tho remains of a deceased person immediately after death; preparing the remains for burial and conducting all services pertaining thereto; operation of a Funeral Parlor. Chapel, Crematory, Mausoleum, Columbarium and Cemetery; tho sale and erection of private tombs, selling and setting underground vaults, monuments, tombstones, grave markers, and having for sale such other services and/or funeral equipment as may be required under tho circumstances. EQUAL BENEFITS TO RICH AND POOR Under "THE COMPLETE SERVICE PLAN" there will be available, to rich and poor a more pretentious funeral and Interment service at a considerably lower cost; necessity for tho buyer paying cash will bo eliminated as "THE COMPLETE SERVICE PLAN" will allow for payment of'the obligation incurred, in easy monthly payments. PRONOUNCED ECONOMICALLY SOUND "THE COMPLETE SERVICE PLAN" has been pronounced ECONOMICALLY SOUND and has received wide recognition and indorsement from Interment officials throughout tho world who freely predict that no opposition, or combination of circumstances can prevent its ultimate general adoption. INTERMENT PROJECTS WILL BE PROTECTED Through the adoption of the "Complete Service Plan" Interment Projects will no longer be burdened with tho problems which have so long hindered and retarded their development and proper "Perpetual Care." Neglected Memorial projects and weed-grown Cemeteries will bo but memories of a forgotten age. Memorial Projects will become—secure and reverent sanctuaries of beauty and peace throughout the land and serve tho purpose for which they are intended—to stand for all time as living tributes to our beloved dead. IN THE INTEREST OF PUBLIC SERVICE Bakersfleld Memorial Park, Inc., has undertaken the public service .of providing the answer to tho vitally important question, "What disposition shall he made of our beloved dead?" When the greatest of ,all human crises comes to you or yours, It is not a question of whether you will make provision, but only of when, where and how. Most of us accept it as a duty to provide for the protection and well-being of our loved ones. Why leave them unprotected when you are gone. Wills, llfo Insurance, or oven large estates often do not provide immediate aid. The time to make provision is when we are well, when death seems far away, when wo are capable of calm deliberation and unhurried choice. Bakorsfleld Memorial Park, Inc., urges this from an unselfish standpoint. Many people whom you know and whose good* judgment you respect have taken the step, choosing a Memorial In Bakerstield Memorial Park where ownership is not a morbid possession but a source of lifelong pride. The Bakersfleld Memorial Park, Inc., appreciates the sacredness of tho obligation It has undertaken. It invites careful investigation of its integrity and qualifications. You should support this worthy project In your own interest and In the Interests of your community. QUESTIONS YOU MAY ASK Q. Why should I and my family, in good health, buy interment property when wo may not have use for same for many years? A. Because you have no way of telling when the facilities may bo urgently needed; you will be prepared. Your financial status may change. You have the choice of location and the inducement of the present low prices. Easy monthly payments over long terms are arranged so that no great financial outlay is necessary as would be required in tho emergency of sudden need. Q. Why should I spend tho money now when I can be using It for many years for other purposes? A. Because tho purchase will give consideration and protection to yourself and family. When you have paid the full amount of tho purchase price agreed upon, the total amount will thereafter earn you 0% INTEREST, payable QUARTERLY for 20 YEARS or until the space purchased has been used for entombment or Inurnment, or surrendered and exchanged within 20 years from date of payment of purchase price, for the amount of the purchase price to be applied on any other properties, merchandise, and/or services then being offered for sale by tho Bakersfleld Memorial Park, Inc., at prices then being quoted to other persons therefor. CONCERNING LIFE INSURANCE ' Experience has shown that few people provide sufficient insurance for the immediate needs of their family. If you can perhaps save two dollars of insurance for your family for every dollar used to purchase "before need" facilities now, and huvu the amount of your purchase earn you 6% interest, payable quarterly so long as your space has not been used for the purpose of entombment or Inurnment or surrendered and exchanged in accordance with the terms and conditions us provided by agreement, for a term of twenty years; is that not truly making excellent provision for tho future of yourself and loved ones. BE PRUDENT It will bo a prudent, protective and considerate act to pro- Tide without delay for tho purchase of interment property in the Bakersfleld Memorial Park, in advance of need. You will bo conscious of having rendered a service in tho interests of public welfare by assisting in the upbuilding of a worthy, much noeded and entirely local enterprise. A tilting tribute' to your loved ones and insurance against the burden of their having to sometime provide a memorial to yourself. A MOST IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT—AN ADVISORY DEPARTMENT Under the direction of Mr. Vern Owen, created and now functioning to carry out our pledge to the people of Bakersfield and Kern County to use our best efforts to assist in encouraging funeral services of a high standard, also to help bring about a reduction In present day funeral costs, Is Introduced to your attention.
