He's had a cork in it lor the past 20 years. Adrian, 23. has been hard of hearing since he was three. Tuesday he went to a new doctor. "The cork popped out when the doctor syringed ray right ear." Adrian reported. "It was a quarter of an inch long and cylindrical like a cigarette filler. "When the doctor told me I'd had a cork in my ear, I thought he was having me on. But then I realized Hint I was cured. "I've asked my mother if she knows why I should have been going around with a cork in my ear, but she is as puzzled as I am."

"DEAL WITH SUCCESS" Contact JAMISON REAL ESTATE CALL 242-0372 JAMISON Salesmen: BOB SHOW and MIKE DAVIDSON decision, written by Justice William J. Brennan Jr., ruled that religious disputes ought to be settled within the religious farm iiy. The parent bodies in such hierarchical denominations as the Presbyterian, the Episcopalians, Roman Catholics and the Lutherans already have great control over local church affairs. The decision, therefore, would seem to make it almost impossible for dissident local branches to take church property in a break with national churches. Obviously, local congregations 1 knowing they can't take the church building and the per-] sonage with them, will think long and hard before going off on their own. The same would appear true of the Methodists, a conneetion- al church with some local autonomy but administered in a hierarchical way. Like the Presbyterians, the Methodists face a breakaway in Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina caused by a difference in policies. Commented John Wesley Lord, Washington — area bishop of the United Methodist Church: "This ruling of the Supreme Court would seem to strengthen the right of parent churches to control the equity, the property, in the event of a movement of dissidents in local churches." The decision's impact on nonhierarchical churches — Baptists, Quakers, Unitarians and Jews, for instance — is less direct because their property is controlled locally. And the ruling's prohibition on the settling of doctrine disputes in civil court would seem j to supply to struggles between I two factions of a congregation. I These, too, would have to be I settled internally. j The courtroom door is not completely closed to religious groups however. A property dispute between a parent and branch church or between two church factions can be settled in a court so long as the civil courts don't inject themselves into what Brennan called "substantive eccleiastica) matters." — | For example, he said, courts I can resolve questions of "fraud, ! collusion or arbitrariness." For example, he said, courts ! can resolve questions of "fraud, collusion or arbitrariness." Or, as Justice John M. Harlan pointed out in a brief concurring opinion, they can enforce deeds or wills that lay down conditions limiting the way a church uses the property granted. 1 iti 5283 Con Avail Yourself of the Services Offered by This Agency.

Illinois Coal Reserves Are Biggest In Nation SPRINGFIELD, 111., —The greatest reserve of bituminous coal in the nation, 140 billion tons, is beneath Illinois soil. A recent publication by the Illinois State Geological Survey, "Sulfur in Illinois Coals" or Circular 432, estimates the coal reserves and reports on their suitability. A free copy of the circular may be obtained from the Geological Survey, Natural Resources building, Urbana, 111. 61801. Suitability of coal is determined by its sulfur cont ent. Analysis of 473 coal samples showed a sulfur content of 3.57 j per cent. Low - sulfur coal is j considered to contain 2.5 per. cent sulfur or less. Three major areas of relati-' vely low- sulfur coal are outlined and mapped in the report. The areas, for which reserves have been estimated, are of Herrin (No. 6) coal in south-central Illinois, Herrin (No. 6) coal in the southwestern area and Harrisburg (No. 5) coal in south eastern Illinois. Low -sulfur coal has been reported from five other areas in the state but with insufficient data to estimate reserves.
