By JEANN'E HORW'EDEL t group to "operate" on the cars. Customers Column SENDS POEM Editor, Valley Times: My sister in Spokane sent me this poem and I thought it too good to keep to myself. Mrs. H. E. Groff, Pacoima. When God gave out brains, I thought he said trains, And I missed mine. When God gave out looks, I thought he said books, And I didn't want any. When God gave out noses, I thought he said roses, And I ordered a big red one. When God gave out legs, I thought he said kegs, And I ordered two fat ones. When God gave out ears, I thought he said beers, And I ordered two big ones. Then God gave out heads, I thought he said beds, And I asked for a soft one. When God gave out necks, I thought he said cheeks, And I jokingly asked for a rubber one. Roy! Ain't I a mess?

And why, when they go marching by no you and Mommie have tears in your eyes? Mommie says they're marching through To victory for me and you. Ix that where rny Daddy went? Is he fighting for defense? That's what Mommie told me when Daddy marched away with the other men. And Grandpa, why is Mommie sad? Shouldn't she be awfully glad That my Daddy, a soldier can be? To Eght for freedom and liberty? Can't be done eh? Oh yes it can, said Elden Mason of 1123 Varna avenue, Van Nuys, after reading Washing-ton, D. C., discussions on the subject of taking cylinders from cars to save on gas mileage. Mr. Mason has been running a N.-I2 Cadillac of 1931 vintage, which has been converted Into a 6, for the past three years, changing his mileage from 9 miles per gallon to 19 miles per gallon. He has taken numerous trips over the ridge route, up steep mountain climbs, through sandy roads, and on long treks and the motor is smooth as a sewing machine. The car can make 60 miles an hour without- effort but Mr. Mason says he does not want to drive that fast anyway, now that tires are scarce. An even number of cylinders should be kept. however, according to Mr. Mason, in order to balance, and the motor retuned in order to equalize the load, but considering the saving in fuel alone, is worth the S1012 he states "the job" cost. A friend, Harold Tipton, former North Hollywood mechanic who likewise has a "cut cylinder" car, was the first of the dS,AAtPk,ftO,0S.A0,..e0.

If anyone wonders about the beauty We just ask them to comet and look, For we know it's more beautiful Than anything they read in books.

The object in such as they were at this period establishing San Fernando Mis VLi Father was to establish centers of missionary activity as equally distant apart as possible so that not more than one day's journey $7700 of history, were administered from Los Angeles as they are for most of the Valley today. Velcomed By Owner Arriving at Encino Ranch, the expedition was welcomed by the owner, Francisco Reyes, then mayor of Los Angeles. After lunch and a two-hour rest, the expedition accompanied the alcalde to select a site for the new mission. The knowledge of the exact location of the original site favored by the expedition seems to be ambiguous, but all reports appear to indicate that it was some distance due north of the final and present location of the Mission, and was selected principally because of the abundant fresh water supply offered by the artesian wells in the big Cienega that existed on the present site of the Mission Wells just west of San Fernando Road be, tween San Fernando and Sylmar. This source became the water supply for the Mission as it had been for a large Indian settlement adjacent to its site for untold generations, and after the missionary period until the time of the completion of the Los Angeles aqueduct this Water source was the principal water supply for part of the town of San Fen sion was not merely to fill the gap between the Missions of San Gabriel and Ventura, but, as in the case of all the other California Missions, to persuade the pagan Indians to accept Christianity, to teach them useful trades and to live a healthy. normal, civilized life of accomplishment, and to convert an indolent, pagan savage population into a civilized, self-sustaining, Christian society. In this purpose the Franciscan missionaries were remarkably successful in spite of insurmountable obstacles and political interference until their property was finally confiscated by the unscrupulous Mexican politicians after Mexico had obtained her independence from Spain, a new condition which in some respects at that time proved to be not altogether an unmixed blessing. (To Be Continued) ,-- Heart Attack Claims Victim CANOGA PARKWalter Burdette, 67, of 20250 Sherman way, writer, died unexpectedly from a heart attack while working in the garden of his home, after having eaten dinner at 4 p.m., according to a Valley Police report. Mr. Burdette apparently be. coming ill after working a few minutes, came back to the house to sit down in a chair on the front porch. He complained to his wife, Alwina, of not feeling well and "having oaten too much." He started to shake violently and turned pale. Mrs. Burdette called a neighbor, A. G. Soloman, who called Dr. Gundrum of Canogl Park, who pronounced the man dead upon his arrival. The body was taken to the Noble mortuary in San Fernando. 0 It's your duty to vote. ......
