At the report meetings, Steffey said chairmen of county policy development committees will sum up the opinions of farmers in their counties for consideration by the I.A.A. tentative resolutions committee. Formal drafting of resolutions that set the policy of the organization will take place the final day of the I.A.A.'s 39th annual meeting Nov. 16-19 in Chicago, Steffey said. Ten minutes will be allowed each county report so that all counties can be heard, Steffey said. A county summary will be submitted, as will a written summary prepared by the county HE WASN'T KIDDING—Kenneth Nelson, 2, clutches his double- barreled cork popgun and a partridge as he smiles indulgently for a picture after his "hunting" expedition in Boyne City, Mich. His mother, Mrs. Dorwin Nelson (left) just smiled when Kenneth announced he was going hunting. She was surprised when he returned to their yard a little later clutching a still warm partridge. Mrs. Nelson surmised the bird had hroken its neck against a wire. Ken wouldn't talk. (AF Wirephoto.) Gruver Escape Was Through Front Door I)WIGHT, III. MP) — The superintendent of the State Women's Reformatory said Friday night "we believe" escapee Betty Gruver "went out through the front door" of her cottage. Mrs. Ora Wakefield, the warder in charge of the cottage where the former night club girl was confined, was ordered suspended by Mrs. Mary Powers, the superintendent. Miss Gruver was serving a 14- year sentence for the killing of a former Urbana gambler and tourist camp operator. Cottage Locked Mrs. Wakefield said that at 8 o'clock Thursday night she locked the door of the cottage where Betty and 17 other inmates were confined. Betty was gone when Mrs Wakefield opened it again at 5:30 this morning. "We're virtually certain that Betty didn't squeeze between the bars of her bedroom window and drop 16 feet to the ground," said Mrs. Powers. "We believe she went out through the front door."

Unwanted Harvest Hand Works Corn Fields in Galesburg Township A group of farmers in an area of Galesburg Township of Knox County has encountered evidence of thefts of corn direct from the fields during .the past several days. One individual reported that a considerable amount of corn is missing from the stalks in three different fields on his two farms. The supposition is that the corn is picked, piled on the ground and then carried in sacks to fence lines along the roadway. Footprints appear in field where the corn has been found missing to indicate that the com has been stolen in this manner. No vehicle tracks have been noted in the fields concerned. The vexed group has arranged to have the area patrolled in an effort to apprehend the ambitious intruders. Little John Coal Co. Bestows on Knox 125 Acres Near 'Green Oaks' Knox College has announced receipt of an additional gift of land in the Green Oaks area near the Spoon River east of Galesburg. A tract of 125 acres has been given the college by the Little John Coal Company. It bounds on the part of Green Oaks farm recently given the college for outdoor laboratory use by attorney Alvah S. Green, a Knox graduate in the class of 1890. who wrote and cashed seven bad checks here in a 1'/6-hour period July 3. '' Assistant State's Attorney Dale F. Rucdig Jr. plans to contact the FBI to discover whether Wayne O'Halloran, arrested recently in York, Pa., is the George J. Hill who wrote the Galesburg checks. Ruedig is acting on information obtained by Detective William Allison. Victim Provides Link Allison discovered the Pennsylvania arrest in a monthly bulletin published by a detective agency. He showed the bulletin picture of O'Halloran to one of the local check victims, who identified the man as Hill. Ruedig said today that he will send a detainer warrant to York for O'Halloran if he proves to be the man wanted here. The penman who appeared in Galesburg used the name, "George Hill" as an alias and is believed to be George Saunders, an inveterate penman with a string of at least seven pen names. All seven of the Galesburg bad checks were signed with the name of Hill and written on the Bank of Galesburg. One was for $40, the other six for $30 each. They were cashed at seven Galesburg stores in the peak hour of Friday evening business — too late to check them at the bank. $220 in Bad Business The penman's visit was bad business for the seven merchants who sold only about fifty dollars in merchandise and provided the remainder in cash for checks totalling $220. In four stores, checks were cashed with no purchases being made. In other Galesburg bad-check cases, W. A. Dickerson, 34, of LeRoy, Minn., pleaded guilty in Knox County Court Friday afternoon to obtaining mo.iey from the Broadview Hotel by means of false writing. Judge Gale Mathers ordered him to pay a $100 fine and to make restitution in the amount of $64 for four bad checks written in June. The judge also ordered Dickerson placed on probation for one year. Authorities reported still a third local check case — a slick operation if early indi- • cations are true. A Galesburg bank is believed to have lost $150 to a forger who wrote a check of that amount on an account which he had opened at the bank with the deposit of a $400 phony check.

Galesburg Is Far Ahead in Gas Tax Money Galesburg's revenue in 1953 from motor fuel tax collections is racing far ahead of anything ever before acquired from this source and makes possible several street improvements that might not otherwise have been considered. A credit of $12,653 for September was the lowest since last April, but that was not significant as September's return is always lower than those for the three summer months. The allocation for the past month was far in excess of the $8,680 received in September 1952. At present the city has been credited with $114,470 for 1953 while in 1952, for a comparative time, the total was $88,370, or $26,100 less than this year. June Banner Month The city's largest credit was derived in June with the sum of $15,613. The smallest was $9,706 received in February, the shortest month of the year. , The bulk of the larger credit resulted from bigger allocations of $14.2B4 in May, $15,613 in June, $14,696 in July and $14,058 in August. Sums distributed to other municipalities of this area in September were: Canton $4,952, East Moline $5,643, East Peoria $3,691, Havana $1,770, Kewanee $6,778 Lewistown $1,051, Macomb $4,270!

Article IV of this constitution gives the power of law making to the Sen Henry Bureau Sets Event on Membership "Our aim is a 10 per cent gain is the slogan in the organized plans for the Henry County Home Bureau membership drive, according to Mrs. Orlo Woodcock, county vice president.

At the present time there are 51 senatorial districts with one senator from each district and three times that number of representatives in the House. The General Assembly meets the first Monday after the first Thursday in January. The secretary of slate presides and after the caucuses have been held the president pro- tern of the Senate and the speaker of the House are elected. The committees are then organized and each member is given his choice of four committees. If possible he is given the committee of his choice. At the present there are 23 committees. They represent such things as Appropriation, Education, Legislation, etc. Tells Details Mr. Larson discussed in detail how a bill becomes law. A member first has nn idea concerning a bill and discusses the idea with the Legislative Reference Bureau, which is composed of eminent law- lee before it can be referred to (he House. It is then given three readings in the House. At the end of the third reading discussion of the bill is heard and the vote is taken and recorded by an automatic-recording voting machine. A bill must have 77 voles to pass the House. The bill then goes through a similar procedure in the Senate. If the bill passes both houses it then goes to the Governor, who has 10 days in which to sign it. In the last legislature 1004 bills were referred to the Senate and House. Of these, 528 were passed, 61 were vetoed by the governor and three were vetoed in part, Mr. Larson pointed out that the committee has a great deal of power concerning a bill and it is here that the bill is often changed or killed. Changes Planned Mr. Larson then discussed many of the bills that had been passed and mentioned in particular some changes in ihe state constitution that would be voted upon by the people in the coining elections. For example: it has been suggested that there be 58 senatorial districts instead of 51, which yers. The statutes are carefully checked by this bureau to see if, there are any conflicts. The hill I would leave 34 senators from is then presented at a roll call to!d°wnslale, giving down-state sen- the clerk and referred to a spe-!« tors control of the Senate. The cial committee.

Mr. Larson said that we can do a great, deal by keeping our representatives informed about ideas we have concerning bills and by contacting members of the committees where the bills have been referred and remember at all times that the state legislature belongs to us. Mr. Larson commented on bills passed in the recent legislature Choose Committee to Make Distinguished Service Designation R. L. Colburn, president of the Cosmopolitan club, has announced the appointment of Dr.* E. D.
