She stressed these points of the Democratic platform, "The things that you find are good for America are the things on which the Democratic platform is built, and It goes hack to Thomas Jefferson, who said 'Things that are good for tho American people are what the Democratic Party is built on'."

CARL WHITTINGTON ship service with us. Pastor The nursery will be open for your little ones. The Democratic Party is a good party for the people." Mrs. Fritz told the women that "Eisenhower has been in the army so long, he is out of date—he even uses an old Hoover word 'crusade. That is the wrong word. Ike's in a battle now, and he is in this battle alone. There are no battalions to send in to fight for him—he's in himself, and that is why Adlai will win. "Ike has been pampered, paid, and clothed by Uncle Sam. He has lived a life of luxury In large houses. Big Brass can stay in the Army. Its in the Democratic platform that we're for peace. "Its a nice feather in Stevenson's cap that the student news paper of Columbia University has eiven their backing to Stevenson, although Eisenhower is President of that University. Those students compare tho men and the way they run their campaigns, and what they stand for — then publicly gave their backing to Adlai Stevenson, When Republicans cry 'We need a change' they never finish that to tell us a change to what Do they want a change for the worse, a change backwards, or maybe its the small change we ladies have in our pockets they want." Mrs. Fritz received enthusiastic applause. Joy Jines then entertained with several numbers on the piano, and the ladies sang spontaneously to wind up the meeting happily — "Good Night Ladies."

Wilson of West Frankfort, fighting his dismissal as a state mine inspector, has been taken under advisement by Circuit Judge DeWitt S. Crow. Judge Crow announced Monday he would make a ruling in about 10 days. The 72-year-old Wilson, an inspector of mines since 1942, was fired in June for neglect of duty and incompetence. Director Walter Eadio of the State Mines and Minerals Department made the charge. They were upheld by a special hearing officer. Wilson in his suit contended that Michael Greenebaum of Chicago, who conducted the hearing, did not have jurisdiction to hear the charges and that tho hearing provided "no evidence of guilt." Greenebaum is a member of the State Civil Service Commission but did not sit in that capacity in the hearing.
