LOCAL SECTION BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1933 PAGES 9 TO 14 ADDITIONAL PAY ROLL DEMANDED Chief of Police Demands Probe of Liquor-Theft Rumors ANCIENT HORSELESS CARRIAGE REJUVENATED Howard Carlock Again Denies . Making Charges Against Local Officer STATEMENT REQUESTED Official Action Is Aftermath of Fist Fight Retween Two Officials of a fist fight between •*- J two Bakersfteld city officials, staged last week on a downtown street, reverberated through the city hall last night when Chief of Police Pont Webster, one of th« participants In the impromptu fistic encounter, asked that members of the City Council Investigate the accusations allegedly leveled at the police department by Councilman Howard Carlock, the other party in 'the long-standing verbal battle which culminated In an exchange of blows. After some discussion, the council turned the Investigation over to Tom Kllpstein, C. L. Olbson and Frank •Hughes, members of the Bakersfleld Police Commission. "This Is an unfortunate situation, but we accept the responsibility of the Investigation, and will return a report soon," Commissioner • Kllpstein, who Is In constant attendance at council meetings, told the city fathers. Carlock Agree* Councilman Carlock voted In favor of permitting the police commlsslon- ( ers the power to Investigate the accu- ' satlonafend recriminations. "Chief Webster Is talking through his hat," Councilman Carlock declared after the council meeting, "and Is making a mountain out of a molehill to soothe a tender akin. I didn't accuse anybody ''of 1 anything' but merely asked him to run down certain rumors. And he wanted to fight me for that! Things have reached a pretty stage when a councilman can't ask the police chief to Investigate departmental activities without becoming Involved In a street brawl," he declared. Chief Webster's statement to the council asked that the investigation be made to clear or convict Lieutenant O. G. Heckman of the asserted charge that he carried confiscated • liquor from the city hall storeroom to a relative In Olldale. The chief stated that his own Investigation of the charge cleared Lieutenant Heckman and that he wanted the. charges and * findings aired to the public. Demands Publicity "1 further request that the findings of the committee be made public In order that any false Impression made on the public by newspaper articles recently published, or by street rumor and gossip, be dispelled," the chief's statement read. Discussing the situation, Councilman Carlock said that there Is liquor stored In tho city hall without reason. "All the cases In court have been completed, and when I asked the chief when he was going to dump the liquor, he said, 'When I get d--m good and ready to do It," Councilman Carlock SB Id. » The trouble between the two city officials, which brewed over a long period of time, flared Into open flame with the exchange of blows, and each has vowed to "get" the other's job, ^clty hall attaches declare. *-•-» TWO SHORT DETOURS Two short detours will be encountered around bridges at Bena, on the Bakersfleld-Mojave road, advises the touring bureau of the Automobile Club of Southern California. GAS RATES HERE DECLARED TO BE STATE1LOIST Engineer Fears. Efforts to Gain Slash May Cause Increased Costs LOCAL PLANT PAID FOR Railroad Commissioners Give Decision on Kern Highway Project Hearing to obtain a grade separation for the new state highway alignment here, and for an allocation of costs, as well as the proposed closing of the Norrls road and a grade crossing for Olive Drive, was begun today before W. J. Carr, state railroad commissioner. E. E. 'Wallace, state highway engineer was one of the principal witnesses called here today to give testimony concerning engineering data In connection with the proposed grade separation. Construction of the new highway will eliminate all grade cross- Ings as there Is already an underpass on Union avenue. New Type Bridge Concerning the bridge now in use over Kern river, a structure which will be replaced by the new routing, Mr. Wallace said It was Inadequate— that Its vertical and horizontal curves Impeded traffic and slowed It down. The new bridge, wider and of a different design will be safer. In his opinion. Incidental to the hearing, but important to residents of the Olldale, Beardsley and Norrls districts, will be the testimony to be taken In connection' with the proposed closing of the Norrls road, which Intersects the railroad, and the "leaving open" of the Olive Drive highway. Supervisor J. O. Hart, who represents the district affected, and who was attending the hearing today, said he wished for the benefit of the district that the Norrls road' closing be permitted and the Olive Drive crossing be kept open. A close observer of proceedings was Hugh L. Pomeroy, adviser to the planning commission here, who was In attendance. W. A. McGinn, deputy district attorney, was also In attendance, representing the county. The hearing was well attended, with all districts being represented either by auditors or witnesses.

Mr. Hall, Its first owner, tired of bewildering the natives and livestock with his sizzling speed and traded It to Conrad Schaefer out on Wlble Road for some cows. During the World War It answered the call of patriotism and was stripped of copper and brass, but It still runs.

"For this condition three reasons are given: "Bakersfleld has used natural gas since 1910 and has completely written off the cost of Its manufacturing plant, "Bakersfleld has no ordinance regulations prohibiting the UNO of un- vented fixtures, which makes for a larger domestic consumption. "Bakersfleld's proximity to the gas fields permits a lower wholesale rate."
