Town highway commissioners in secret meeting The nine highway commissioners from the townships in Du Page county the town clerks, met In Wheaton last week Friday to discuss the coming road budgets with Eugene L. Gates, county superintendent of The meeting was secret.

Tax review may require 10,000 letters York recheck ordered by county board Just how long a time will be icquired to hold in regard to assessments on realty in York township has not been ascertained. The fact that assessments returned this year are more than $800,000 under those of last year and the determination of the board of supervisors to find out the reason is expected to result in considerable work for the board of review. The board of review must notify every property owner it wishes to interview with a special delivery letter. John J.

Kelly, chairman of the board of review as well chairman of the board of supervisory, estimated that it will retiuire between 10,000 and 12,000 of these special delivery letters. It is the opinion of members of the board of supervisors that these special delivery letters arc necessary since the signing of a receipt by the person to wTiom it is sent constitutes a valid record. No matter how long it takes to carry out the investigation, the board of review is prepared to go through with it, Mr. Kelly says, If the York township assessments permitted to stand, many taxing bodies will lose much needed revenue. Three of the township Supervisors who vigorously protested the lowering of valuations in York township this year are: Melville W.

UNnlayson of York township; N. Lies, Bloomingdale township, former chairman of the board, and Seymour Waterfall of Downers Grove township. Mr. Waterfall, pointed that Downers School Announcements For Bensenville Pupils the county coffers the second amount of taxes donated by any of the nine townships, York being the largest tax payers. However, with the present York valuations, there will be little difference between the tax amount paid by the two.

This lessening of York township valuations would work harijk ships, these supervisors believe, on many taxing bodies. The City of Elmhurst would al so suffer througih the lower val uations, the mayor and council of that city, authorizing investigation in regard to the lowered valuations.

MfTProspect Pioneer Dies, Well Known Here Mr. William Kirchhoff, whose father was one of the pioneer settlers of Wheeling township, died Saturday morning, August 28, aged 82 years, 9 days. Funeral services' were held Tuesday afternoon at Mt, Prospect Lutheran church with interment in the Lutheran cemetery. Those left to mourn his departure are his wife, Marie, three sons, Louis, William and George, all farmers on Central rd, Mt. Prospect; three daughters, Mrs.

Sophia Zersen, Itasca; Mrs. Louis Freise, Palatine, and Mrs. Laura Stier, Mt. Prospect; 26 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. School Director One of the 'first civic jobs that Mr.

Kirchhoff undertook, was that of school director of the new school district No. 57, which gave the newly formed village of Mt. Prospect, a school of its own. It was formed from territory that was previously included in Fee- hanville, District 68 and Des Plaines. Mr.

Kirchhoff became a school director at the organization of the district, remaining on its board 35 years. He helped to build the original building and the four room brick structure. He was always a friend of education. Years after his retirement from the school board he displayed interest as a private citizen in the welfare of the local school system. William Kirchhoff was the "father" of drainage in this part of Cook county.

By invitation, he was one of the original dramuge commissioners of Wheeling Drainage district and was one of the organizers of Weller Creek Drainage district, taking the blunt of the work attendant to court approval of the plans. He served both of the districts as commissioner many years. These two districts today furnish adequate drainage for a large farm territory in the neighborhood of the village of Wheeling and in northern Elk Grove township, including the village of Mt. Prospect. He visualized the future of adequate drainage that would transform average farm land into truck gardens that would double and triple the value of the land itself.

Ham sandwich may be yours Thanksgiving Uncle Sam has promised every man and woman in the U. S. Armed forces a Thanksgiving day turkey dinner. For that reason, the government has frozen turkeys. Keith Chidley, largest turkey- farmer in northern Cook county, is a man who takes an active interest in his industry.

He has explained just why Uncle Sam needed to freeze the turkey crop. It seems that ten to 14,000,000 pounds of turkey will be needed for the armed forces at home and abroad during the Thanksgiving season. From two to 3,000,000 pounds will be needed by Sept. 15 for shipment to further-distant four corners of the world where American forces are stationed, When turkey men heard these stipulations, they realized that early shipment meant many birds would have to be "finished off" very quickly. So they gladly agreed to put a complete lid on the entire turkey industry until government needs are filled.

Organized turkey raisers are cooperating with the government and: are encouraging all others to do likewise. The sooner the required pledge to the government can be filled, the sooner the turkey ban will be lifted and the industry will return to normal. So should you be unable to get a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner, you'll know that some fellow in a far off part of the world is getting yours. Mr. 'Chidley 'suggests that you settle for a ham sandwich-now he can explain where to find ham! American legion convention inpressions by A LEGIONNAIRE The American Legion held its State Convention for the year 1942-43 in Chicago on Aug.

28-2930. The Legionnaires held their headquarters at the Sherman hotel, while the auxiliary met at the Morrison. The citizen thinks of a Legion Convention as a time for the members to burst out in fun and pranks, with perhaps a lot of water squirting, confetti and confusion in general. The convention delegates this year conducted themselves with great decorum and there was practically no excitement, either on the streets or in the hotels. What little merry making there was, took place privately in the hotel rooms.

Even the Sunday parade was almost a solemn affair. The crowds were there; yes, but in their hearts were thoughts of other men marching, not on parade, but into battle, perhaps never to return. The tone of the whole affair was sad. At meetings the leaders displayed great earnestness and sincerity in carrying out their programs, and inspired the hundreds of delegates with new ambitions and enthusiasms to carry back to their poets all over the state. Among the many prominent speakers, Mrs.

Alfred Mathabet of California and American Legion Legion Auxiliary National President, was most outstanding. She is a woman of great force, power (Continued on Page 3) Begin $3,000 Improvement on Green St. Bensenville expects to conquer "jinx" The Green Street Improvement project in Bensenville which calls for an outlay of some -f 3,000 will begin next week, village officials said yesterday. This improvement which is to extend from the end of the pavement on East Green Street to County Line Road, nearly a mile in length, will be paid for entirely out of motor fuel tax refunds received from the state highway department. Everybody in Bensenville is familiar with this particular stretch of roadway which has caused village authorities and highway engineers more headaches and has cost more in upkeep than any like stretch in this locality.

The fact is that it has become such a "jinx" that even engineers cross their fingers when they state conclusions about it. This time, however, the is that they ''have it licked. The present project is the result of the combined efforts of state and county engineers and village engineer Al Nelsen. Because of the swampy terrain, excessive moisture has undermined every roadbed that has been devised. Now telephone poles have been set back and a wider grade is being used.

Three layers of crushed limestone will be laid on the roadbed, coarse, medium and fine. On top of this the specifications call for a coating of calcium. The job is expected to be finished in a short time, i Wm. F. Brechlin, aviation machinist, home on furlough F.

Brechlin, libh machinist mate 2nd class, stationed at San Diego, came to Bensenville last week for his moth er's funeral and is spending a short furlough here with his family and friends. When he returns he wjll apply for active duty on a Navy PB-4-Y patrol bomber, the equivalent of the Army B-24, Young Brechlin, a graduate of Bensenville high school class of '42, enlisted a year ago and en tered service at Great Lakes. From there he was transferred to the Ford Motor Company aircraft school at Dearbo'n, thence to his pfesent station. Bob Johnson and Archie Jennings, former schoolmates, are in the same area in California, but he has not been able to locate them yet. He did enjoy a brief visit with Ralph Los Angeles, however, he says.

He visits William Rands, a former Milwaukee Road employee at Bensenville, frequently at his home in Ventura, Hands is now working in the Navj switch yards. His brother, Robert, a senior at Bensenville high, has successfully passed his examinations for the Army air corps and expects to enter the service upon his graduation. Their late mother, llrs. Gertrude Brechlin, saw service in the last war as an army and their father served in the armed foi'ces. Lincoln school registration Tuesday, Sept.

7 All Lincoln school students of Dist. No. 1, will register Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 10 a. m.

The fee for the first four grades is $2.25 and for the upper four grades $2.50. Any student who intends to work at farming for a while will please register on Tuesday so that arrangements can be made for his year's studies.

Bensenville group hear revenue man explain procedure At least 100 Bensenville income taxpayers will know exactly how to make out their estimated reports to the federal revenue department September 15. This number of people heard Conrad Kaar- etsen, Elgin, from the internal revenue department, discuss the ramifications of the new income tax procedure at the high school Wednesday night. The meeting was sponsored by the Bensenville OCD organization. Those in doubt as to whether should file a return, should "ile by all means, the speaker advised. Corrections and adjustments required, can be made in the Dec.

15 filing. The point to remember is that this year's income taxes from incomes such as salaries, wages, are due and payable this year, 1943. Airman dies in action Mrs. Leonard Baumgartner was notified by the war department Wednesday that her husband, Staff Sgt. Leonard A.

Baumgartner, was kilte.d in action Aug. 17 in che European war zone. He is the fourth Bensenville man to die in the service of his country during the present war. On his way overseas the Flying Fortress, "Pistol Packing Mama," on which he was assistant radio operator, was forced down in Chicago due to weathet conditions and Mrs. Baumgartner was able to see him for a short time.

The Fort and its crew landed in England about July 16, and it is believed that Sgt. Baumgartner was killed on first raid. Sgt. Baumgartner lived for 12 years at the Evangelical home for children and was graduated from the Bensenville high school in 1940 where he was a star athlete basketball and track. On March 3, 1942, he was married to Miss Dorothy Wagner at Sioux Falls, S.

where he was in training. He had but one 3 day furlough over July 4th, which he spent with his wife in Bensenville. Besides his wife Dorothy, daughter of Mrs. Loura Olsen, Sgt. Baumgartner is survived by two sisters, Mrs.

Martha Helmold of Itasca, and Mrs. Viola Nichols of Benvyn and three brothers, Emnmck of Itasca, Roy of Bensenville and Staff Sergeant Orland Baumgartner who has been in England for the past two years. Although Leonard had talked on the phone to his brother after his arrival in England, he had not been able to meet him. Sgt. Baumgartner would have been 22 years old October 31.

Dogs kill 07 sheep; loss is over $2,000 Damage estimated at $2,000 was caused by dogs who broke into two sheep flocks in the Barrington vicinity early Monday morning, killing a total of 87 animals and wounding seven others. Most of the loss was suffered in a flock of Jewel Tea where 86 sheep were destroyed. The other raid was staged on the farm of the late Alfred L. Eustice, near route 59 south of Barrington, where one animal was killed and seven others injured, one so badly that it probably will die. Workmen from the J.

H. Catlow company, who were working on the Jewel grounds, discovered the damage there about 7:15 o'clock Monday morning. From a distance of a quarter-mile they spotted a lone dog in the field which they believed to be of German police breeding. The dog and probably some companions evidently had gotten through the fence during the night and wreaked havoc among the 300 animals penned there. The pasture is south of the Jewel buildings, the western edge bordering Northwest highway.

Of the sheep destroyed, 40 were Oxford and Dorset ewes which had been bred to Corriedale rams, and 46 were lambs, both ewes and rams. Dogs 'have raided Jewel flocks several times in the past, but Monday's was the first for this year. The damage done was the largest in any single raid. Roy Upton, manager of the Eustice farm, said that three dogs which were discovered among the flock about 7:45 o'clock Monday morning had been positively identified as belonging to John Laux, who lives on Bartlett a short distance south of the Eustice place. One dog was a female, part police, and the other two were her pups, over a year old, part police ajid, part bird dog.

Workmen on the Eustice' shot one of the dogs as thejjrgpur- prised the raiders, and the animal ran away and hid. He had npt; come home Monday night when Upton called at the Laux place. 48 mile bike race Sunday, Sept. 12 The Edison Park Wheelmen's annual race will be held Sunday, Sept. 12, in Mt.

Prospect. The race will begin on Main outside of Busse's garage at 1 p. m. Fifty to seventy riders will follow the 48 mile course on Northwest highway to Dundee then on to Rand and Elmhurst, and finally back to the garage on the highway. They will cover the course three times and will be escorted by motorcycle police.
