CULLERTON IS ASSESSOR OF COOK COUNTY. He wants to continue being Assessor of Cook County after November 3rd, and that Is a pretty good possibility since he has held that office for about 20 years. He hasn't lost his touch either. This last week we all received a nicely printed piece telling us what we've always wanted to know about the functions of the Assessor's office. We learn, for example, that the Assessor has nothing - repeat, nothing - whatever to do with the computation of your tax rate, and that is particularly valuable information to have during this period of deliberation over candidates. Printed and mailed at taxpayer expense, the attractive little folder was accompanied by .1 personal note from Mr. Cullerton mid was sent to property owners and renters alike. The latter are described as "indirect taxpayers." They may also hi' described as direct voters.

THIS WEEK'S AWARD FOR STI(/> - ITFORWARDNESS goes without serious competition to the yt : fellow who wrote to a local merchant about his account. "Just a note to tell you that I know my account is past due," he wrote. "I will pay as soon as possible. I am getting married next month to a girl with money.' 1 The postman must have enjoyed it too. It was written on a postcard. 0-O-L IT'S NOT EXACTLY A PET PEEVE, but you can't help noticing how many people mispronounce the name of the gland which causes so much distress among the male population. It's the PROSTATE gland and there Is no second "R" In the word. The other word is PROSTRATE. That means horizontal or prone, a position so frequently enjoyed by this columnist. Best way to remember the difference: your prostate can make you prostrate. 0-O-L OKTOBERFEST? WUNDERBAR! I PROSIT-ed to so many people's health I nearly ruined my own. It's strictly a big league event now, with consumption of solids being expressed in tons and consumption of beer in thousands of gallons. The parade matched the rest of the festival as an unqualified success, easily the biggest show since the Centennial celebration. Enthusiasm was contagious among participants and spectators alike. The very able committee has a problem to consider, of course. How will they accommodate the crowds that will want to enjoy it next year? It's a pleasant kind of problem but not easy to solve. By Sally Shaw DEAR SALLY: I'm looking for a husband for my widowed mother-in-law, a very attractive woman of 45 who lives with us. She and I formerly got alongvery well but not since she has made her home with us. Our personalities constantly clash and life is misery for me. In my husband's eyes, she can do no wrong but then he isn't home all day and his mother and I are. How cart I get her married off without giving her (and my husband) Uie impression that I am trying to get rid of her (as I'd like to do)? BADGERED. DEAR BADGERED-. Assuming that your mother-in-law has any interest in marrying again, you can start the ball rolling by introducing her to a few eligible prospects. DEAfi SALLY: I'm a girl of 19 but look older. One ol the executives in the department store at wliich 1 work has shown a lug interest in me. He is a divorced man of 49, who looks much younger and has taken me to some very expensive places. So far he hasn't made any passes at me outside of goodnight kisses. I tillnk I could fall in love with him. Do you think he's too old for me? BABS DEAR BABS: The very fact that you're asking me indicates you already know the answer. Give this 4'J'er back to the worn en of tils own generation. DEAR SALLY: My wife is a sweet and intelligent woman but when she has had one drink, she becomes completely unstrung and begins to babble out words that are anything but "acceptable" in polite society. This-Is really embarrassing to me at the parties and other functions we attend. Always later at home, when the effect of her drinks has worn off, she is terribly sorry and promises never again. But still it keeps happening. Advice'.' HANK DEAR HANK: I suggest that you and your wife discuss this seriously and if she is as sweet and intelligent as you say, she'll listen. If she doesn't want to ask for a soft drink at these parties, you can help give her the appearance of "one of the gang" by quietly mixing her a ginger ale with a cherry in it. DEAR SALLY: I'm a widow of 51 and it's no secret in town that 1 was left substantially well fixed in a financial way by my late deal husband. Since I am still considered quite attractive, I don't lack tor male com|janion- ship - bachelors and widowers. However, my sister keeps claiming that these men are primarily interested in my money and as a result, I am becoming more and more dubious whenever a man shows a more than passing interest in me. I'd appreciate any advice you might have to offer. WORRIED WIDOW DEAR WORRIED WIDOW: Stop listening to your sister and begin tlu'nking for yourself! Any inordinate fondness for money by any person will inevitably reveal itself sooner or later - but in the meantime accept the attentions of these men in a positive frame of mind. People who constantly mistrust the motives of others succeed only in making themselves unhappy and inoi-e often than not unpopular. \
