An analysis of potato planting acreage In competition with Kern county's tuber production was prepared today by M. A. Lindsay, farm adviser, taking his data from the United States Department of Agriculture. "The growers' estimates for 1933 acreage In the south and for eastern states Indicates a slight reduction In acreage with the Rio Grande valley of Texas showing a considerable In- j crease," Mr. Lindsay asserted. "The market news service of the United States Department of Agriculture states that according to reports of growers' Intentions to. plant potatoes, tho commercial acreage In early and intermediate states may bo reduced this year to about 244,400 acres, or 12 per cent less than that harvested last season and 30 per cent below the relatively high figure of 1931. The increase In lower Rio Grande valley of Texas Is more than offset by a 21 per cent decrease for Florida. Six other early states may have about one- eighth less commercial acreage than last year, sharpest reduction being made In parts of Texas outside the I Rio Grande valley. The four second ] early states report an Intended net j decrease of only 20 per cent, Oklahoma making- the greatest reduction i In this group. Seven Intermediate j states show an expected reduction of ' 13 per cent from last season. Eastern shore of Virginia alone may cut its acreage by nearly one-fourth. "About a dozen cars of new stock were shipped last week, about equally divided between Texas and Florida, Movement of all stocks from the Important northern and western states decreased to around 4010 cars, or 050 less than output of a year ago. "The grower of potatoes In Kern county should know that the acreage In the Rio Grande valley Is that acreage which is In competition with the Shatter potato grower and that the acreage there has been Increased for the 1933 crop."

Conference rpHOMAS W. McMANUS, Bakers- J- field insurance broker, today appeared before directors of the Bakers- fleld Civic Commercial Association, and delivered a "personal and public" protest against tho plan to recall Governor James Rolph, Jf. "The cost of a recall election would amount, to approximately J500.000," the Bpeiiker said, "of which Ki-ru ruuiity and Its 85,000 rCKldentH would b« called upon to pay approximately $8t>50. Signatures necessary to bring about the recall election would result In the ex- pendlturo of approximately $20,000 additional and thn cost to the Htato Itself would be about $20,000 more," he said. "Los Angeles county would bo required to pay about $178,000 and San Francisco county about $51,200," ho said in dl&cuisslng the recall movement after the C. C. A. meeting. He quoted figures presented by Holland A. Van- degrlft, state director of finance. "How can. any one seeking a reduction in taxes countenance a recall election that would cost almost a million dollars?" McMunus Inquired In rhetorical style. Mi'Manus did not ask the C. C. A. directors for an official or formal opinion on the subject, but thoxe who expressed views were of tho personal opinion that the recall movement not only is headed for failure, but that it would result in turmoil within legislative slid business, circles. "The proposed recall transcends political maneuvering," Mc.Manus declared, "It Is liable to upset our remaining economic stability. Regardless of party beliefs we should discourage the movement and settle down lo tho work of regaining bimliiess confidence. And besldeH." hn added, "tho Legislature haw tho power to bloo)j move- montn of the governor." Following a report by Dr. F. Kcn- j iictli UamUn, director or tue C. C. A,, the board of directors adopted a resolution authorizing calling of a special , membership meeting to discuss changing the name of tho organization to "Bukersfleld Chamber of Commerce." "The C. C. A.," he said, "was incorporated for a period of 50 years, of which 10 years have pubspd. The board of directors must pass a resolution culling a spfclal meeting nnd send a copy of the resolution to every member, naming the date, tlimi and place of tho assemblage," he reported. The C. C. A., he said. Is a nonprofit and closed corporation, which does not require additional'legal maneuvering for a changn in name. Doo- tor Hamlln worked with Attorney Calvin Coiiron on the report. Upon tlm recommendation of Director C. E. Anderson, tho board gave Standard Stations, Inc. the privilege of distributing official city chamber of commerce tourist Information In Bakersfleld. "This Is a real step forward In publicizing Kern county," Director Anderson declared. "Under this plan, employes of tho service stations will describe the wonders of Kern county to tourists, and rotogravure pictures of scenic beauties here will be printed In bulletins—nil at no cost to our organization. This Is the type of publicity which we have been seeking for some time and we should prepare to take advantage of the opportunity," he said. Under the new publicity plan, the C. C. A. will direct the type of publicity distributed, and the manner and time of Its distribution. Three units of tho Standard Stations, inc., will dlHtrlbute the Information. Employe* of that concern will bn couched thoroughly In order to bn able lo direct tourists to show plttucs of the oouuty. [ELIEF of grief-stricken families, '• which have suffered the loss of a loved one, prompted officials of the Bakersfleld Memorial Park, luo., to create an "advisory" department, according to Vern Owen, member o£ the firm who will be In charge of^that duty. In revle'wlug duties ot the new department, Mr. Owen stated, "for many years families have made decisions hastily and later became sorry for their action. Most persons know little about making arrangements for funerals and tho department was created to advise those charged with that duty. "Tho new. department will bo glad to answer any question at any time, either before a death has occurred In a family, or after a'death, for the purpose of assisting In suitable arrangements. . "When a member of a family dies, the head of that family Is required to learn unfamiliar details concerning mausoleums, crematories, cemeteries and columbarlums, and cannot he expected to master such knowledge within a few days. ."In creating this department, officials of the Bakersfield Memorial Park, Incorporated, feel that they are doing something worth, while for citizens of Kern county, In that they will relieve be. reaved relatives of much sorrow generally associated with a death in the family. A qualified representative will be glad to call upon anyone Interested In the subject," Mr. Owen stated. Recently the concern, which 'has Malcolm Brock for Its president, announced plans for a development program which will Include construction Jobs costing approximately $13B,000, and_ provide much needed work for many of tho city and county unemployed.

WELL KEPT No evidence of neglect Is found In Kern county vineyards and orchards, despite low prices of tho past season, according to N. D. Hudson, assistant farm adviser for the University of California here. Winter pruning of trees and vines Is apparently as far advanced at this time us In past seasons. The quality of the work being done seems to improve from year to year, Mr. Hudson said. Growers here have developed systems of grape vine pruning which result In high quality. Among the tree fruits, plums are perhaps the best pruned. The chief fault with tho training of plum trees has been the development of too many main branches. This has resulted .In weakness and slenderness of Individual limbs, and more difficulty In development of a good supply of fruit- Ing lateral. Nevertheless, the annual pruning has been moderate, and the orchards are very productive. Apricot trees aro usually headed somewhat too 'severely here, resulting in excessive annual wood growth. Carefully checked university experiments show that for bearing apricot, trees, from 1 to 2 feet of new growth annually Is sufficient to maintain vigor and fruit production. Another Important factor In this connection la that heavy pruning In these experiments delayed the ripening of the fruit for 7 to 10 days.
