From Monday to Thursday has probably been the most exciting four days that Noble J. Puffer, county superintendent of schools elect has ever experienced. , . Monday evening while driving on Ked'/.ie avenue, he drove into nn unprotected street repair hole. His cur was consid' crably damaged. Mr. Puffer was uninjured. Tuesday evening, he was the "victim" of the greatest Cook county Democratic landslide in recent years. Again he emerged from the "wreckage" uninjured as superintendent of schools for FIRE DESTROYS COUNTRY STORE ATCLOVERDALE Half-Century Old Landmark Burns With Loss at $15,000 Tedrahn's country store at Cloverdale, located on the Illinois Central railroad 3 miles south of Roselle and 5 miles north of Wheuton, a landmark, postoffice, and gathering nlace for nearby farmers for a half century, was completely destroyed by fire Wednesday evening. Flames, first discovered ut 7:30 o'clock, swept through the two- story frame structure in two hours and caused a loss of $15,000. Fire departments from Whcaton and Bloomingdale were called, but with no water supply available, were unable to check the flames. Chemicals were used and helpful neighbors carried hundreds of milk cans full of water from nearby farms, but to no avail. The building was erected by Charles Tcdrahn, father of the present owner. The Ihe began in the basement. A $10,000 stock of hardware, groceries, and dry Roods was lost. The family lived on the second floor and rear of the first floor and lost all household goods, clothing, and personal effects, including several purses containing considerable cash. Post office records and store "books were saved when Mr. Ted- rahan locked them into the store's safe. Insurance will not cover the loss. The family is temporarily occupying the unoccupied Cloverdale bank building.

Arlington Out For Co. Seat The idea of divorcing nine north townships from Cook county and the formation of a new county as was acclaimed Friday night by 350 civic leaders meeting in Evanston, is meeting 1 with a generous support throughout the western townships effected. A committee of 100 is to be formed to push the project. The proposed new county , will extend 25 miles westward from ! the shore of Lake Michigan and be 12 miles wide. Arlington Heights is in almost the exact geographical center of this area. Because of its central location it is the logical location for tho county scat, givifig all citizens equal case in getting to the county government to transact nosii. One of the objections to the present county set-up is that citizens \vho would transact business or pay taxes must go into the citj's congestion to got to the county building. Location of the new county seat at Arlington Heights will not only benefit merchants by bringing in trade from persons coming to do business with the county, but the construction of court house, county jail, and other necessary buildings would relieve the depression among the long-idle local building tuules svorkurs. The new county would contain 155,000 residents, and would be surpassed in size only by thu ic- mnindcr of Cook county which would include Chicago, and by St, Cluir county in which is included the City of East St. Louis. To care for the business of this group would probably require a county building, to include courtrooms, supervisors' rooms, ollices, jail, etc., at least as large as the $750,000 structure recently proposed in DuPage county, Evanston, with a population of 63,338, is the largest city in the proposed new county, but its choice as u county seat is made impracticable by the same two factors which make Arlington Heights the logical choice. First, it is not centrally located and furthermore is among the congestion of the city and North Shore, Second, as the largest city in tt-u area, locution of th? county seat there would result in a domination of the county government by Evanston similar to that today by Chicago. Bringing the seat out to the center of the county to a I smaller community would reduce the domination of the laigest city and give llie rest of the county's citizens an opportunity to be heard. Better government, home rule, and lower taxes are pointed out as the benefits of organizing a new county by William Lister, Evanston corporation counsel, who is one of the major backers of the project. "We could not, however, escape our share of the Cook county indebtedness," he said at Friday's meeting. C. M. Modcrwell, former president of the Chicago school board, was the lone dissenting voice at the meeting. Pessimistic over the chances of the project, he suggested a movement for the reform of existing conditions. Another step towaids butter railroad crossing safety in Palatine was made Monday night, when the village board received a petition bearing 873 signatures asking that gates be installed. The petition was presented by W. S. Dollinger, former village president, in the un- ft.'piduble absence of L. J. Stein- brinck, chairman of the special committee to investigate the crossing question. A. H. Schmidt, village trustee, moved that the committee consider the pcti^ipn, whose signers total 1 " 42 per cent of the community's population, and draw up a resolution to be passed at the next meeting of the board and sent with the petition to the Illinois commerce commission. Final decision of the question will lie with that commission. The memlbeis of the Ullage board, Roselle, were compelled to meet Tuesday night in the offices of the village collector, havinp; generously surrendered the Village hall early in the day to the voters, and the clerks and judges could not finish their tabulations until late in the night. No new business of any great importance came up for consideration. The Bell Telephone company is asking for a renewal oi the franchise with the village, which expired recently. Action is expected to be taken on this matter at the next meeting. Signs are to be elected at the disposal plant warning irrespons- ibles to keep hands off. $2b reward will be ofi'eied iby the board to any person reporting offenders wiio in any w.iy damage this village property. The reward will be paid upon arrest and conviction of the guilty parties. The boaid approved the bond furnished by Kdwm Ciieseke, treasurer of Roselle fire department; A spucuil contract between the village and tne Suburban dairv, calling for a special water rate, was approved by the board Tuesday night.

Chicago Well, some of the "Old Fighting Spirit" of Bensenville schools a lew years ago, has boon re-ar- tangcd into what looks to he a pretty good football tram. Last Sunday they journeyed to West Chicago for their first encounter of the season and played West Chicago team to a 0 to 0 or scoreless tie. Next Sunday they expect to play Villa Park team either at Villa Park or Bensenville, but probably at Villa Park. So, watch some of ,he Hashes of other days and see .hem go places. Those who enjoy football will no doubt get a big kick out of these games this fall.

The NKA may not mean anything in the minds of some local business men and some of the public, but the viUa s e of Arlington Heights learned last week that in tho cxpendturc of gas tax money on its roads, they must recognize only such lirms or bids as are op- cuitmg and are submitted m accordance with tho code. The village recently let a stone contract to the amount of 81,476.34, payment to be from gas tax fuel funds due tho village. Four other bidders submitted a price of $!,641.25. The contract \sas awarded to the low bidder. The attention of the village was called by the code authorities for the industry eft'cUcd that the bid accepted \\as megular, and could not bo accepted by the village. The letter closed, "Under tWcse condi- 32.50 lions you are urged to disiegard the megulai quotations in favor of your local tax paying- members of the industry, who ha-ve maintained their position in support of the Recovery program, since its organization."

Although November 11 is Sunday, the following day is taken as a holiday by banks. Something less than a record vote was cast Tuesday when voteis throughout DuPage county went to the polls to decide the bitterest contes.V. ever staged during a local bir partisan election. The total vote of 37,000, while less than the presidential vote of 44,000 case two years ago was none the less a big day's \\ork and represents the widespread interest of DuPage people in county, state and national affairs. i Robinson and Hellyer Democratic Winners For the first time during the last fifty years two Democrats were elected to office in DuPage county. William Rob^ inson, Mayor of Westmont and a member of the DuPage county board from his township, Democratic candidate for circuit clerk, won a decisive victory over Eva M. Ellsworth. present Republican incumbent, to fill a two year vacancy which was brought about by the death of Lewis Ellsworth; Mrs. Ellswoith had been appointed to fill her husband's position until this election. Robinson's margin was 2217 votes. He was third high vote man of the day. The other Democratic victory was by the narrow margin of j ust 13 votes when Arthur L. Hsllyer beat out the veteran Republican, John Hesterman, for the office of county treasurer. This race early established itself as the center of interest as the returns started pouring in at Wheatpn. Throughout the entire count of the 80 DuPage election districts, Hellyer and Hesterman were running neck and neck, one and then the other forging ahead by the narrow margins of from 10 to 75 votes. ; With 77 precincts in, Hesterman was leading by 28 votes and leaders of both parties were breathlessly awaiting the story that the final three had to tell. The Democrats had sized up the situation and saw their man in by 148 votes and the Republicans were getting ready to concede it by something like that margin. But the final count for the 80 precincts was Hellyer 18,444 Hesterman 18,431. Knoch High Vote Man in County To Win. G. Knoch goes the honor of high vote man In the county for the day. He polled a 21,521 vote to defeat his Democratic opponent, Benjamin Levering, by 6,200 for county judge. Arthur Bennett also won handily in his contest with the Democrat, Frank Pratt, for sheriff. His margin of victory was 4,700. Clarence V. Wageman, present Republican county clerk incumbent, had little difficulty in his contest with Thomas F. Maisel for re-election Wageman's majority was 4,200. Incidentally he was second high vote man of the day. In the probate court area, we find the Republican incumbent of the office of probate judge, Edgar F. Thoma, winning over his opponent Frederick C. Harbour by a margin of 1,042 votes. The two candidates both hail from Elmhurst. Bernard M. Long, Republican, probate clerk incumbent, was victor in a close race with the Democratic candidate, Felix McFaralnd. His margin was about 900 votes. Chauncey Reed Wins Congressional Battle Chauncey W. Reed, DuPage state's attorney, after a bil- ter contest in every county in the llth congressional district has been declared the winner over James Howell, his Democratic opponent for a seat in congress, by approximately 800 votes. Reed carried DuPage by 381 votes; MeHen-y by 2617 votes; lost Kane by 137 votes and lost Will by 2,061 votes. Reed received 69,582 and Howell 68,782. O'Neill, Wood, Hennebry State Winners John L. Walker was beaten by Warren Wood from his own home town of Joliet in the contest for state representative from the district composing DuPage and Will counties. Hennebry, the Democrat, was of course an easy victor. In the Republican run-off between the two Will county candidates and Lottie Holman O'Neill from DuPage county, Walker ran .behind by over 4,000 votes. The final vote was Wood 46,159; O'Neill 38.289; Walker 34,529. The vote by counties: Expect RFC Loan A RFC loan sufficient to pay a 20 to 25 per cent dividend to de- po=itprs m the First State Bank of Harrington IB expected to be approved within SO days. Wood O'Neill . . . Walker Hennebry's vote was 82,000. Richard J. Barr, Republican, was re-elected state senator by a substantial majority. DuPage 13,222 ..19,416 15,500 Will 32,93* 18,873 19,029 Analysis of North DuPage Poll Tuesday Noi'th DuPage county poleld 322 less votes Tuesday than in the presidential election in 1932. The vote was 2232 for the seven election districts and 2554 in 1932. Bloomingdale towship, comprising Roselle, Bloomingdale and Cloverdale voted Democratic, all the way down the ballot. The four election districts of north Addison township, Itasca, Wood Dale and two in Bensenville, divided the vote about fifty-fifty. DuPage Republican candidates, Knoch, Wageman, Bennett and Morgan received majorities in the total north Du Page vote. The Democratic candidates Harbour by 156, McFarland by 55, Hellyer by 196 and Robinson by 269 received north DuPage majorities. _ _ . _ _ M
