No Bomb Shelter For Inflation -o- -o- -0- Weather Closes Schools In State By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Freezing rain and drizzle glazed streets and\highways in northern Illinois today and many schools were closed be. cause bus service was called off for the day. Some schools were closed in Cicero, Orland Park, Westchester, Western Springs, Northbrook, Hickory Hills, Niles, Lincolnwood, Palos Hills, Tinley Park Snd Elmwood Park—all suburbs of Chicago. Illinois State Police closed a stretch of Illinois Route 2, six miles southwest of Rockford for six hours today after a dozen trucks slid off the heavily iced roadway. The closed area was a stretch between Byron and Rockford. In Chicago work crews labored through the night to spread salt on 1,320 miles of arterial streets. A spokesman for the Department of Streets and Sanitation asked Chicagoans to spread salt on the city's 8,000 miles of sidewalks to provide safe footing for pedestrians. The Federal Aviation Agency air route traffic control center in Aurora, which covers seven states, reported that air traffic was slow because of icy runway conditions which spread as far west as Denver. Three aircraft ran off runways or taxiways today at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. No one was injured. A Chicago man, John L. Stef- fien, 24, was killed when his automobile skidded on an icy pavement and struck a light pole. The Weather Bureau said the freezing rain and drizzle that put a coat of ice on northern Illinois would change to rain later in the day when the temperature was expected to rise to about 37 degrees. The rain Was expected to change to 'snow tonight as an Arctic cold front passes through the area. A spokesman for the CTA in Chicago said subway and elevated lines were operating on schedule but. that buses were from 15 to 30 minutes behind schedule because of icy streets.

Lows tonight are expected to range from 15 to 25 degrees in northern and central Illinois and from 25 to 30 in Southern Illinois. The weather throughout the state Wednesday will be cloudy and colder. Paducah, Ky., had a maxi- Now! Enjoy the magic comfort of luxurious ( CARLYLE AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC BLANKETS By HAL BOYLE NEW YOR^C (AP) — Jumping to conclusions: Inflation is more actively fea'r^el today than is the hydrogen bomb. We have become numbed by the long threat of atomic war and relatively few brood about it. But a lot of people today are brooding about inflation—there is no basement shelter against it. Most of the people I' know who eat wheat germ for breakfast are poor conversationalists. An old-timer is a guy who remembers when he. got a $2.50 a week raise he felt like he was getting up in the world. Doesn't it make you sentimental when driving through the countryside to come across an automobile cemetery? The battered old derelict vehicles look so ugly and yet so vistful, as does anything that once served a purpose and now no longer does. It seems a shame to see these abandoned old cars, which once gave so much pleasure to -o- -o- -o- th'eir* owners, rusting forgotten in the rain. Cars are such status- symbols in our ' civilization that one would think they'd deserve more dignity when they expire. Perhaps we should give our favorite old cars decent burial, put a small monument over them, and plant memorial flowers. In any event, that would certainly help the looks of the countryside. A friend of ours reports his son in college is flunking chemistry, logic, and political science but doing very well in picket placard designing. One of the signs that the times are out of joint is that you see more people on the streets talking to themselves than you did 25 years ago. If you take the trouble to listen to what they are saying, you'll find they aren't bragging or praising— they're complaing about something or somebody. Two of the places where a grown man feels hopelessly in- -o- -o- -o- ferior to the occasion are a ladies' hairdressing salon and, on Saturday afternoons, a supermarket crowded with women attacking his shins from all directions with those venomous little metal shopping carts. In each generation one or more occupational groups bears the brunt of public anger .dislike or outright scorn. Around v the turn of the century the industrial magnate became the symbol of all evil; in the great depression, a period of many foreclosures, it was the banker. Today it is difficult for landlords or, in some areas, for doctors to win popularity contests. A wise young man should learn early in life never to marry a woman who insists on dousing herself with too much perfume. Having to pay for the perfume for the next 50 years would be bad enough; having to whiff it ail those years would be infinitely worse. A woman should use perfume as an accent, not a bath. Farm News By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation's farm debt increased $5 billion in 1968, but farmers' equity in land and other assets climbed $9.2 billion, the Agriculture Department reported Monday. However, credit generally was tighter last year and is expected to be restricted further in 1969, the department said in a financial outlook report. Total agricultural debt outstanding on Jan. 1 was $55.5 billion, up 10 per cent from a year earlier. , Department officials said all' farm assets on Jan. 1 totaled mum reading Monday of 42 degrees, while Chicago's high was 31. ; It was 36 in Belleville and 29 in Rockford. The mercury dropped to 17 degrees in Rockford this morning. $297.9 billion, compared with $283.7 billion a year earlier. The overall equity of proprietors in the agricultural plant was a record $242.5 billion, an increase of 4 per cent from $233.3 billion the year before. Department analysts said capital expenditures are epect- ed to rise this year and that "adequate funds" will be available to help the more efficient farm operators. But, the experts added, farmers of "marginal efficiency and low income" will have trouble obtaining necessary financing in 1969. ; "Interest rates on farm loans will likely remain high in 1969. An drecent movements of prime interest rates indicate possible continued upward pressure in coming months," the report said. Farm borrowers can expect "a progressively closer relationship" between the costs of loans for agricultural purposes and those in the nonfarm loan sector, ' officials said. Despite tighter money, rising debt and prospects for more of the same in 1969, farmers generally were in better financial condition on Jan. 1 than they were a year earlier, the report said. One reason, it added, was that 1968 farm gross income exceeded the climb in production expenses. This left farm operators a net income of $14.9 billion for the year, compared with $14.2 billion in 1967, officials said. The value of farm and buildings—usually about 68 per cent of all assets—rose 4.6 per cent last year, trailing the 6.2- per cent rise in 1976. Physical assets other than real estate—including machinery and livestock—gained over 1967 with a 6.6 per cent rise last year compared to 2.5 per cent. The value of farm financial assets rose slightly less in 1968. WASHINGTON (AP) — Shipments of stacker and feeder cattle and calves shipped into eight north central states during December totaled 685,000 head, an increase of three per cent from a year earlier, reports the Agriculture Department. December shipments into the major producing areas brought the 1968 total to 8.2 million head, up five per cent from 1967, the department said. —AUCTION— HUNTER SALES CORP. ANNUAL CLEAN-UP AUCTION.
