Grand Theater Realty Tax Is In Dispute City Treasurer Otlo'Hcrmann was undecided today as to his course of action with regard to tho taxes of tho Grand theater. When ho demanded • payment of tlio taxes ho was refused by John M. Pfelffon- liorger who took the position that l,ho taxes had been spread against tho theater as personal taxes. Tlie theater, ho contended. Is real estate and the personal assessment is erroneous. The reason why the personal assessment was made, it is said, is that the theater was erected on ground that was held under Icaso and was net owned by the owners of tho theater. Mr. Pfelf- fenbcrger nays that tho theater being real estate should ho taxed as such and that It must he regarded as realty. Tho city treasurer. Mr. Herman, conferred with the county treasurer, William Martin, this morning and ho was advised to proceed against the properly by levying on it and taking charge. Mr. Pfelffen- bp.rgcr Bald that if this is done ho will get out an injunction to to.alt !t before the sale can take place. Manager W. M. Sauvage, who for the present is operating the theater under a ( leaso with privilege ot buying, disclaimed any responsibility for payment of the lax as he did not have charge of the property last April when the asssesment was made, and did not assume the taxes for the year. The clty'treasurer Is preparing to close his tax collecting tomorrow night. He had a small collection Saturday and there was very little being received today, so it is assumed there wHl be only a small amount collected tomorrow. Those who have, not paid their real estate taxes, It is assumed, are prepar- Ing to pay them to the county treasurer at Edwardsvillo later on.

Concrete examples to show tho value of national advertising were cited today to members ot the Ki wanis Club by John D. MeAdams business manager ot the Telegraph at 'today's luncheon at the Mineral Springs. The object of advertising on a national scale, Mr. MeAdams said, fs lo keep before the public an idea and to keep the impression of that idea at a certain level. An article cannot be advertised constantly and a demand created for it, and advertising then slopped, because it Ihe idea is not kept before the public, demand soon will die.

SHURTLEFF WINS PLAGE IN NORTHCENTRAL Is Accorded Recognition in Association of Col- 1 * v ri i leges and Schools. Secondary At the recent meeting of the North Centrfl Association of Colleges and secondary schools hold In Chicago last week, tho application of Shurlleff College for membership along the lines proposed in the plans in tlle Association was approved and tho college was voted iuto the membership of the Association. It is needless (o say that President Potter was delighted with tho action, and conies home feeling very much pleased with the new recognition that has come to Shurtlcff College.

One contracting firm which bid on tho city hall improvements says there Is much ir. the way ot argument against any effort to preserve any part of the old building, looking at it from the pofnt of the constructor. The Telegraph was told that it would bo Impossible to straighten up the lines of the building whete leaning has put the structure out of plumb and that the building In some respects would defy efforts along that line. ' On the other hand there must be considered the manifest preference of the public for the preservation of the old city hall as near along the lines It now has as possible.

Peter's and Paul's church, on the eve of his departure from Alton. As a testimonial " of their esteem they had collected 50,000 which was given to the departing priest. It was tho gift of nis friends both in and out ot (ho church and the earnest wish was entertained by some that he would supply hlmsnlt with an automobile put of the money, a convenience he has never had except as ho borrowed the use of one. from some ot ms numerous friends.

Mr. Stowell suysi he believes tho number to participate in this Recognition Day is the largest of any class in the years this practise has been observed at the First Presbyterian Sunday school. How California orange growers created a demand for their "product was described. When there was over-production, they advertised "an orauRO a day keeps tho doctor away." Tho result, demand greater than production. Raisin men did the same thing. the old structure will cost. It always costs more to remodel an old building extensively than to do new work to the same extent, because of the chances which must be taken by a contractor. Seeking Lower Paving Prices. Another mailer which Is to be. | given serious consideration Is get-1 Shurtloff's ting lower prices on the proposed P vcrt paving contracts.

This means that Shurtleft must have $400,000 by this time next year, and $500.000 by at least the same time in 1927, as is the case with all other col leges In the Association. Since Endowment is a little it is necessary that at least $.10.000 must, be added during the coming year and thus bring the Endowment up to $400,000.

On in City Court An interesting case was on trial In the City court today before a jury, in which William Turk was seeking to recover $1,000 from Harry Glssal, paid as first payment on a place on Belle street, the old Ilch home, and tho deal was not completed. Tho plaintiff contends that he bought the place, paying $1,000, on tho condition that ho was to receive the first payment back if ho did not go through with the dcnl. The defendant denies this claim and says that Mr. Turk took possession of the phicc, harvested Home ot the crops, decided ho did not want the place and did not mako the balance ot tho payments. An unusual feature, of the cttse was that David Ilch, one ot tho heirs to the Ilch estate wan ono of the men called on tho petit Jury to try this caso iiiul ho made known the fact that ho had beon interested in the property before. ever, Mr. MeAdams said.
