' 13,—The turning point in.tho fight by the railroad com• * * mission to enforce proration In the Bast Texas field has been reached, according to a statement issued by n L Commissioner Ernest O, Thompson at Kllgero, after a personal investigation conditions In the. producing area. "While reorganization and consoll- 4 datioh of tho railroad commission forces has brought, greater efficiency und more effectiveness, the major 4 part of the credit belongs to the landowners, the people that wero here before the oil field came," Thompson said. "The .landowners are awake to the sltuatlori and are determined to protect their rights, and see that their rightful possessions are not dissipated a wild orgy of flowing wells and overproduction. "While they would lilws to have more oil than Is now allowed under present orders, they realize that there ,1s not enough market to go around and that everybody should have his proportionate share of the available market, Tho greater portion of the operators realize that the breaking clown of prorntlon would mean complete destruction for many of our operators, as well as deprive the landowner of the wealth that Is his."

Death Valley Scotty Gets Credit for Monument Idea Valley • whose (United Press ANGELAS, Feb. 13.—Death Scotty, flamboyant figure exploits have created u saga of the west, was credited today with being largely responsible for the establishment of Death Valley as » na( tlonal monument. Heavy-set, Jaunty, boisterous, Wai- 1 ter Scott did more than any living] man to popularize this desert sink, i lying 1 .100 feet below sen level near tho Xcvuda 1 stale line in Inyo county. His genius for publicity and his genuine love for this region, at once a forbidding hell of heat and a brilliant achievement of prankish nature, bore fruit today in the reported sign- Ing by President Hoover of n. proclamation setting aside the valley as a desert monument. rtt 1 Leased T There ore grizzled prospectors who perhaps know Death Valley better than Walter Scott, but the air of mystery which has grown np about him, tho stories of his fabulous gold •mine and his flair for "mailing the front page" have fixed him in the mind of the public as a veritable man of the denert. The, name of Death Valley Scotty raced across the, front pages of the nation more than 20 years ago when tho weather-beaten figure of Walter i Inyo county burdened down with sacks of gold. The gold, ho let It bo known, came from an Immensely rich mine he had discovered In the heart of Death Valley, where nature perpetrated one of her greatest jokes on mankind. Superior Is Making Past Drilling Time • i Superior Oil Company Is making rapid progress in the drilling of its sixth Huffman well on section 29, 21-17 .it Kottleman Hills.

Although capable of doing several thousand barrels of oil and many million cubic feet of natural gas dally each, none of the four Huffman producers are opened wide, and each has been beanod to lens than 1000 barrels daily. The four wells are doing approximately 2300 barrels of crude and about 6,000,000 cubic feet of natural CRS daily together^ Huffman No. G, on the same flection, is rigged up and ready for spudding upon completion of'No. 6.

Knin.-r, .-,«. r.of An- «w state from being 569.000,000 in the red i at the end of the next blennlum—it Is the problem of how to keep the state from operating under a huge deficit." Carefully weighing, in his address, the advisability of retrenchment through economy, against the plan of raising more taxes, Dr. Johnson said, in part: "Dr. Mussattl has told you that the state faces a possible deficit in the amount of $50,000,000 at the end of the next blennium. "There are two possible courses of action before the legislature: First, levy new and higher taxes; second, rut' the costs of government to meet Its income. "Should the Legislature decide or bo forced to the alternative of raising taxes, there are tho following possibilities: Two Possibilities "It could levy an income tax or a selective sales tax, neither of which would raise the necessary amount of revenue. "It could equalize taxes paid by the state taxpayers. However, tho net increase In tho revenues to the statu from thin action would hn but a small portion of the 159.000,000 difference between revenues and proposed expenditures. "A general sales upon nil the people of California which would yield tho necessary revenue. This would be u tax on the necessities of life. "An ad valorem tax could be levied by tho state. This would bo a tax on the homes and lands already heavily burdened by property taxes for the support of the local governments. "There is little doubt as to what the reception of new or higher taxes would bo at the hands of tho taxpayers of California. Retrenchment Solution "Tho other alternative before the Legislature is to retrench—to cut the costs of government; In other words, to make It possible for the state government to operate on n total general fund revenue of $92,500.000. This is the only possibility, if we are not to "If the people of California allow the situation to go unheeded, years of depression will bo the lot of California. If they allow tho legislators to think that the active, inspired, and highly organized protest from any special group IK the voice of the people of California, they aro doomed to years of wufforing and want. "Tha people must decide these Issues on a basin of reason and fact. They must not allow themselves to bo swayed by beautifully executed, sentimental appeals. Selected Group "Tho people of California have sent a selected group of men to Sacramento as our representatives. They havo every facility .for gathering information. The full machinery of tho state government is at their disposal to obtain the facts of the situation. If we aro to heckle them with pleas nnd advice, baaed on little or no Information, they will be unable to make necessary cuts in the cost of government. "We must not be back seat drivers. We must allow our legislators to make their decisions baaed on facts and not on carefully planned political campaigns based on propaganda and hysteria. .

"Tho government," he said, returning: to other questions, "should stop advancing 1 money to pay interest and principal on private debts of u doubtful nature. "U Is a postponement and frustration of economic cure," he warned. Quizzed by Senators Senator Connaily, Democrat, Texas, was the first to question Baruch, asking him to give in more detail his views on reducing the gold content of tho dollar, which Connaily Is advocating as an inflationary measure. Buruch told him this would raise prices for the new, reduced gold content dollar, but the new dollars wouldn't buy any more as their purchasing- power would decrease in proportion to the inflation. "The farmer who owes money would benefit," Baruch agreed with Con- nallj'. "but you could do the sumo thing for him by printing paper." Answers Senator Reed Senator Reed, Republican, Pennsylvania, pointed out that England went off tho gold standard over the weekend, but this country it would require congressional action which would lake at least a week.

"Soul" was tho subject of tho los- son-sermon on Sunday In all branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, In Boston, Mass/ Tho flcrlptural selections included the words from Matthew: "And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, rryinff, and saying, Thou son of David, havo mercy on us. And when ho was come Into the house, tho blind men canio to him: and JemiB said unto them, Believe yo that 1 am able to do this? They said unto him. Yea, Tx>rd. Then touched ho their eyes, saying, According to your faith bo it unto you. And their eyes were opened; . . . And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, toAchtnff In th«lr synaitourues, and preaching tho gospel of tho kingdom, and healing 1 every sickness and every disease among the people." A passage from "Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Kddy, stated, "Knowing that Soul nnd its attributes were forever manifested through man, the Master healed the sick, gavo night to the blind, hearing to the deaf, feet to the lame, thus bringing to light the scientific action of tho til vino Mind on human minds and bodies and giving a better understanding of Soul and HiUvution." the conviction held hy that progress is Inevlt- Van Kwort, Instructor BakersfieUl Junior Coln address Saturday be- the local college women's club "progress" can result only from understanding of problems as they exist nnd intelligent efforts to grapple with and solve such problems. He made clear tho distinction between "progress" and "change," pointing out thnt it was "change," not "progress," that resulted from the policy of letting problems "work themselves out," It was from these remarks that Mr. Ewert led into his dlscusion of the "Political Crisis in Germany," which. ho said, was only ono of a thousand similar crises of the day, and which must be met Intelligently if the world in to hope for progress. Throe of the world's most deeply rooted institutions, capitalism, democracy and nationalism, aro now on trial In Germany, ho stated. German Unemployment As Indications of tho German crisis, Mr. Ewert showed that in only one year since tho war has that country enjoyed a favorable trade balance. Definitely linked to this problem is that of unemployment, six million men now being out of work In Germany. The government dole for these millions has been reduced until many families aro subsisting on $1.50 per week. "Wages of all skilled artisans were reduced 50 per cent during 1932. Those are a few of the facts brought out by the speaker as evidence of the crisis which Is to be faced by the new German government elected in March. "The United States cannot but be interested in tho outcome, since -10 per cent of German securities ai-e foreign-owned, and tho bulk of these securities are held by Americans," he said. And tho Americans can help by a. sympathetic understanding; of the situation and trup consideration of their own and the world's best Interests, Mr. Ewert Indicated.
