(AP) -The Rock Island county grand jury, charging that a reign of ten-or and immorality has gripped inmates of the county jail, has indicted Sheriff Howard L. Diete- 'rich. Dieterich was accused Thursday [of misfeasance for alleged conditions in the jail, of which he is warden. Specifically, the jury mentioned such reported conditions as kangaroo courts, unsanitary facilities and immoral acts 'perpetrated by prisoners against fellow inmates. One 16-year-old boy was mistreated by three fellow inmates, the jury reported, an elderly man was subjected to immoral acts ,and another inmate was tortured with a burning cigarette. The panel said prisoners "in a measure rule the jail" and "kan- [garoo courts sentence other prisoners to long periods of torture [and terror." When the jury toured the jail in September, a near-riot erupted in one of the cell blocks. Investigation revealed a general detrio- ration of conditions with acts of torture, immorality and inhuman treatment spreading throughout the jail, said the report filed in Circuit Court. Dieterich, 44, a Democrat, was elected sheriff in 1958. Misfeasance — wrongful and injurious exercise of lawful authority — is punishable by a $10,000 fine and removal from office. The jury's indictment charged tlie sheriff with failure to perform his official duties as warden and failure to keep inmates safe from physical harm. THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 13 FARM NEWS .... By RICHARD P. POWERS ... WASHINGTON (AP) - The Agriculture Department says poul- trymen are unlikely to have as good a year in 1961 as they have had this year. Prices for eggs, farm chickens, broilers and turkeys this year have averaged higher than in 1959. But, the department said, in 1961 egg broBer and turkey prices are likely to move back toward the 1959 levels. The department said in reporting on the price outlook for 1961 that the principal factors are the expected larger supplies of poultry meats throughout the year and of eggs during the last six months 'of 1961. People are eating record amounts of chicken and turkey. The department estimates that in 1960 consumers will eat 29.2 pounds of chicken per person and 6 pounds of turkey. Ten years ago the per capita consumption of chicken was 21 pounds and of turkey, 4 pounds. In contrast, however, egg consumption in 1961 is expected to decline further from the 18-year low of 325 eggs per person consumed in 1960. Ten years ago the per capita consumption of eggs was 389. Egg prices are likely to continue higher than the year before for some months, possibly through the first quarter of 1961. This is expected to induce a larger hatch of chicks than last spring. As a result, the laying flock some time alter midsummer will be producing more eggs than in the corresponding months of 1S60. The reduction in the laying flock this year is the result of the 15 per cent cut in the number of i-eplacement chickens raised in 1960, the fewest since 1910. lliiiiiiuiii'tia! Speedway j!

RE-ELECT LAWRENCE J. STARM CANDIDATE FOR STATE'S ATTORNEY The Illinois Campaign By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Republicans and Democrats today entered the final battle for Illinois with election hopes running high in both parties. Robert Kennedy, brotiier of Sen. John F. Kennedy, spent Thursday barnstorming the state and said the Democrats have a "great chance of carrjdng Illinois." Republican candidates were equally certain the fruits of victory would be theirs. Kennedy said in Springfield that his brother, the Democratic presidential choice, might carry Cook County (Chicago) by 350,000 votes. Although such a Ctook County edge is'nt necessary to win the state, Kennedy said, it would indicate a Democratic victory in Illinois. He said Democratic strength in Central and Southern Illinois is 'more than anticipated." Meanwhile, other Democrats prepared a torchlight parade to greet Sen. Kennedy on his arrival later today in Chicago. Gov. William G. Stratton, looking for a third term, and his Democratic rival. Otto Kemer, campaigned Thursday along battle lines staked out earlier. Stratton reiterated his opposition to a state income tax and suggested that Chicago's Democratic mayor, Richard J. Daley, might influence Kemer in favor of such a levy. Kemer, who like Stratton stumped in the Chicago suburbs, said he would oppose a state income tax. "No one can tell just what the governor's position really is," he asserted- In a statement issued today, Kemer said "the people of Illinois will not tolerate four more years of promises by Stratton." Kemer, who planned to spend the evening with Kennedy, charged the Stratton administration with "what appears to be a total lack of concern for the welfare of the people." Samuel W. Witwer, Republican choice for the U.S. Senate, said Thursday he would "destroy a certain myth, the myth of Paul Douglas as tlie great economizer." E>emocratic Sen. Paul H. Douglas said in a statement that Witwer's charge that Douglas would'nt help share the cost of a televised Witwer-Douglas debate "is just another of (Witwer's) imag&ied grievances." The Chicago Sun-Times said its straw poll of Illinois voters continues to give Kennedy, Kemer and Douglas an edge. Kennedy leads Vice President Richard M. Nixon 52.2 percentage points to 47.8, the newspaper said. Kemer's statewide total is 57.7 per cent to 42.3 per cent lor Stratton, the Sun-Times reported. Douglas leads Witwer 57.3 to 42.7. The newspaper said that in heavily Republican areas near CMcago where Kennedy drew large crowds on his last visit, Dollsters found "no lingering signs of a Democratic upsurge." In the closing roimds of the! campaign, Stratton will dedicate a new Northwest Expressway link near Ciliicago Saturday moming, fly to Springfield for an evening rally, and return to Chicago for I more speeches Sunday. He will spend electiraj day awaiting retimis in his home town, Morris. Kemer will stump Saturday with appearances scheduled in 01- ney, Springfield, St. Louis, Her- rin, Benton and Peoria. He will address rallies in Peoria and Decatur Sunday. Kemer will vote Nov. S in his home town, Glenview, and await returns at his downtou-n Chicago headquarters. You have a date—November 8— to VOTE for OTTO KERNER for GOVERNOR "The Sun-Times indorses Otto Kerner, the Democratic nominee for governor. He is a man of substance, dignity and iccomplishmene who could bring to Springfield a moral leadership in State house politics that has been lacking for the past 8 years." Chicago Sun-Timti, Octobtr 20, I960 "Judge Kemer has a brilliant record as a law^'er, jurist, soldier, humanitarian and civic leader. He has not been tainted by the sUghtest breath of scandal. He should maJce tn excellent governor." Tb* Rock/ord Rtgister-Rtpuhlic, an oubtanding Republican tttwspaper August 22, 1960. "The governor has based his entire campaign on his record, which certainly is spotty, to put it charitably, and on his tirades against (^licago's City Hall. He is attempting to arouse downstate against Chicago". ... We believe governor Stratton has earned defeat, and that Judge Otto Kerner is deserving of the support of any independent voter or independent Repubhcan who is not afiaid to aoss party lines." Gikon Ciiy Couritr,. .a Ripublicatt l^ewspaptr, Octobtr 6, I960. "We believe Kerner to be a man of firm personal integrity, highly intelligent, and well informed. He has a realistic understanding of great problems now confronting the state. He should be persuasive with the legislature and the people in finding solutions as utisfactoty as possible under the circumstances." Chicago Daily Nma, Octobtr 18, I960.
