Braude of Chicago before a gathering of some 1,800 teachers in the western division of the Illinois Education Association, held In the Knox College Memorial Gymnasium. Judge Braude, who is.presiding judge of the Boys Court in Chicago and who has served 18 years in a judicial capacity, struck out at a number of present-day attractions for children. Specifically, he mentioned certain types of so-called comic, books along with toy guns and similar gadgets which lead to criminal or near criminal actions among the adolescents. Present- day youths are taking the conclusions outlined in the, latest Kinsey report too literally, the Chicago jurist told his audience. Actual ownership of automobiles should be restricted to persons 21 years of age or over, Judge Braude stated. lie recommended that operation of cars by persons under that age should be only on a re-| The newly activated Holding strictcd basis, such as in gainful [Section of the 44th Infantry (Down- employment or in family use. Use of school buildings to a greater extent than they are now used for recreational purposes was urged by the judge as a means of deterring youths from situations which lead to a life of crime. Thcjganized throughout the state preparatory to the re-activation of the Coitiitiitee Oks Zoning Change The miscellaneous committee of the City Gouncil this morning conducted a heating on a petition for a reclassification of five properties on the south side of Main street, immediately west of Henderson street.

O'Connor, chairman, Harry Haraldson and Harry Anderson, voted to recommend to the City Council that the properties involved be reclassified from "A" single family dwelling to "F" commercial classification, "It was indicated that a motel will be constructed on the premises if the City Council passes an ordinance approving the change in classification.

Last week Evert Johnson showed slides in color, of scenes photographed on his European tour this spring. He explained then that their continuity was a little off because he had alternated taking movies and stills. "I wouldn't do this again," he remarked, "and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. You can't exhibit both kinds of pictures to- Edl'gcther; so you get part of your story in one medium and part in the other, and it's a little disjoined/' So yesterday Mr. Johnson treated his fellow club members to animated views in color, of approximately the same itinerary he illustrated last week. They found it very interesting to see the motion features which were lacking from the still pictures. One episode was filmed from a sidewalk cafe in Paris and showed the people, vehicles and numerous pet dogs passing by.

McCarthy has interrupted his honeymoon to return here because secret evidence taken from witnesses in the Fort Monmouth radar probe "is of such significance that it is imperative the senator return immediately/' Francis P. Carr, executive director of McCarthy's permanent investigating subcommittee, said Friday "the information heard from 15 witnesses was of such importance that chief counsel Roy M. Cohn made a special trip to the Spanish Keys in the British West Indies to relay the information to McCarthy personally." Carr said the Wisconsin Republican was en route to his home in , . _ _ . . ... . [Appleton, Wis., with his bride and Edward E. Enckson of the eng.- would be in New York city in timc neenng firm of Alvord, Burdick for an executive session Monday, and Howson of Chicago, the firm which is conducting a citywide survey of the Galesburg sewer system, was present. The six present were residents of one area in the 6th ward, where the sewer problem appears to be most acute. After various phases of the situation had been discussed it was decided that no action will be taken until the engineering firm completes its survey. Sewer Meeting Draws Small Crowd A meeting this morning in the Council chamber at the City Hall, for Galesburg residents who arc interested in the solution of the city's sewer problems, drew an attendance of only six. But it's not about taxes, balancing the budget or the farm program. And half the time the language isn't even English. The reason: The Capital has been taken over by more than 200 lawmakers from 23 different countries instead of 48 American states. It is {he 42nd meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, an organization of legislators formed back in 1889 to promote closer relations between the parliaments of the world. In honor of the occasion, Capitol| corridors have been decorated with signs like "On Parle Francais ici" and—to prevent rest room mix-ups — "Salon de repos pour les femmes" or "gentiihommes." Congressional attendants have pigeon-holed their southern drawls and hoosier twangs and put sign language to work to ( cope with the foreigners. The delegates are holding forth for five days in the House chamber. They have been supplied with small radios and head sets to tune in on French and English translations of the debate. U. S. auto makers have thoughtfully put 62 new cars at their disposal, with servicemen as chauffeurs. Various private concerns are attending to their food requirements free of charge. Their reaction was in the form of deeper appreciation of the scenic beauties of this jcontinent. Daniel J. Roberts was program _ . . , _ •!chairman of the day. Selections were presented by aj J mixed quartet from' AlWood!

Prairie Cityans To Hear Water Project Prairie City residents will hear plans for a water system for the village Monday night at a town meeting, to be held at 7:30 at the prize for the mother of most sons. Mrs. Hanna Kelley of Alpha received the quilt. Unit members sang vocal selections. Refreshments were served at quartet tables. The serving table was attractive with in the flag colors of red, white and blue and was presided over by Mrs. A. Ed Johnson and Mrs. Bowman. Woodhull Notes Mr. and Mrs. William E. Anderson have returned from a ten-day visit with their daughter, Mrs. H. G. Kephart, and family at Osceola Mills, Pa. A. 1 C. and Mrs. Gerald Miller and infant daughter, Gail Lynne, are visiting at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Ottoson. Gerald has been stationed at Ft.. Walton, Fla. and will receive a 30-day furlough before being assigned to a new base at Okinawa. Mr. and Mrs. M. G. Kernes have received a message stating their son, 1st Lt. Gaven Kerns had arrived in the states and is with his his wife and daughter in Glendaie, Arizona, where they had resided during his absence. Lt. Kerns left for duty in Korea on Aug. 20, 1952. Mrs. F.

The selection of Galesburg was made at the 82nd state convention of the Grange which closed Thursday after a 4-day session in East St. Louis. Enters Bid The bid for Galesburg to entertain the 83rd meeting was entered by Wesley Nelson of RFD 2, Alexis, who participated in the convention as delegate from the Henderson Grove Grange. He was accompanied to thc convention by Mrs. Nelson and Mr. and Mrs, Harry Brown, also of RFD 2, Alexis. Mrs. Nelson also participated as a voting delegate. Nelson was appointed a member of the state agricultural committee, while his wife was named on the by-laws committee. Wins Service Award Burns Grange in Henry County placed first in the state for work accomplished in community service during the past year. The Henry group, which was credited with 16,000 hours of service, will now compete for the national award of $15,000 sponsored by the Sears Roebuck Foundation. Spring Creek and Burns Juvenile Granges also were presented several awards in connection with their activities during the year. Membership in the junior groups consists of boys and girls in the ages from 6 to 14. Among convention speakers were Herschel D. Ncwsom of Washington, D. C, master of the National Grange. Attacks Controls Newsom asserted that American farmers cither must maintain and expand foreign markets or submit to production controls. He said production controls are basically unsound and unworkable. They are not the American way nor in public interest or the interest of the nation's farmers, Newsom added. Similar sentiments against the possibility of a controlled program for all of agriculture were expressed by Dorsey Kirk of Oblong in Crawford County, master of the State Grange, in his report to the convention. Plans Visit to County Kirk, who was re-elected master for the fifth time, has tentatively scheduled a visit to the Henderson Grove Grange in November. A 4-point federal farm program , was adopted by delegates as a and the first and second degreesiproposal to provide some measure of the order will be conferred by!of insurance against such disas- ~ trous price declines as occurred in 1932. A fall festival and dancing party will be held by the Henderson Grove Grange Saturday evening, Oct. 17, in the Henderson Grove School. Than in 1953 Even though Knox County received a slightly higher allocation from motor fuel tax collections in September ihan for the same month a year ago, thc year's total j thus far ranges $14,596 less than for a like period in 1952. September 's credit was listed at $15,884, a sum that was a bit larger than the allotment of $15,480 in September 1952, but considerably under the $17,607 received in August. So far thc county has been credited with $143,048 as compared to $157,644 for the first nine months in 1952. However, this year's amount exceeds that of any other year except that of a year ago. In 1951 at this time the figure was $119,823, in 1950 it was $116,535, and in 1949 it was $100,995. Sums were much smaller in previous years. Sensed Situation That revenues this year would be less than previously was guessed by all county officials in the state. Townships are being included in the division of gas tax money and the percentage for counties was decreased as a result. The strange thing is that allocations for municipalities have increased. The city of Galesburg this year is receiving sums far larger than ever before. Actually the county as a whole has not suffered as secondary roads in townships arc being repaired and total rebates make a larger sum than in previous years. Cites Factors In Decline of Porker Trade The demand for pork and pork products is diminishing and that, coupled with larger receipts at the I market, accounts for the rapid decline in thc hog trade. This observation was made by Dick Herm, buyer at the Peoria Union Stock Yards, in a livestock forecast for the week ahead. Herm said farmers should be encouraged to make their hogs weigh at least, 200 pounds before (marketing, and no more than 230 pounds. Holds Spread The scarcity of packing sow* has held the spread between butcher prices and sows very narrow, Herm pointed out. In looking at the beef trade, Herm said, a further decline is anticipated on plainer quality cattle, and short-fed cattle, as receipts of those kind is expected to increase in the next 30 to GO days. Choice and prime honest fed cattle will remain fully steady to strong during this samp period. Thc abundance of range fat lambs from the Northwest has lowered the fat lamb market, he noted. This condition will continue for another two or three weeks, with very liftlc, if any, improvement in the live trade, Herm commented. Lambs which are fat should be marketed, he advised. Purchase Hamburger Jn Washington, the Agriculture Department announced Friday that it bought 9,245,470 pounds of hamburger and canned hect this week to bolster cattle prices. The purchase brings to 130,675,More thanl^OO pounds the total amount of bluc-bloodedjbecf bought since the program dairy 'cattle went on display today! was set up last July.
