Cermak sisted K i n g leorge's encroachments during the whole course of his series of terms in the mayoralty chair. Chicago and Cook county being eographlcally, as I always had sup- aosed, practically the same thing, I at first, as a transient in the Windy City, .took the forest reserve pu- Dlicity to be something of a joke. But supporters of. President Cermak (president of the county board for many years, thruout which he was engaged in his afforestation activities) say it is no joke at all -it is a real forest; not a park, but a sure-enough primeval, affair. Pictures of Tony, in half boots and a mackinaw, wandering thru it, blazing his .way from the city limits to the county line, are offered in substantiation of the claim that it is the genuine article. * * » S EEMINGLY a forest is better raw material than a record of unyielding opposition to King George, for a Chicago mayoralty candidate to campaign, on; folk laugh (that is, the better class ot folk do) at Mayor Thompson's King George talk, but they appear to take President Cermak's forest appeal seriously. There is something' dignified about a forest, and Tony is making a dignified campaign versus Big Bill's attempt thing, as usual.

The other instance in which the committee recommendation met strong opposition was in a $30U decrease in the salary of a Pardon clerk in the governor's office The proposal was debated at length and the proposal was rejected, speakers contending-that'the present occupant was entitled to a continuation of the existing salary.
