Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Lett3 were surprised Tuesday evening when about 50 friends invaded their home to remind them of their twenty-fifth wedding anni versary. The assembly was composed of Town Line grange members, several grange guests from nearby granges and neighbors.

The evening was spent in visiting and playing cards after which a bountiful Junch which the guests brought with them was served. Fred Gallano, master of Town Line grange, in few well chosen words, presented the honored couple with a gift of cash to which Mr. and Mrs. Letts both responded with fitting remarks. The Letts have been esteemed members of Town Line and the Pomona granges for a period of years, both holding offices in the! two granges.

Compared wth the first of last year, the picture is not so favorable. The bushels of corn now on farms is 595,000,000 less than the 1,405,000 bushels on hand last year, and the bushels of oats is 286,000,000 less than the 770,000,000 bushels on hand Jan. 1, 1936. Cattle numbers on feed in 11 corn belt states at the first of this year were 10 per cent larger than on Jan. 1, 1935, but' 23 per cent less than the number on feed Jan.

TWO SIMPLE RULES INSTEAD of buying costly medicines to relieve the discomforts of a cold, try the way almost any doctor you ask will approve as the modern way genuine BAYER ASPIRIN. It now costs only 15 for a dozen tablets, or two full dozen for a quarter.

The way you use it is this: Two BAYER tablets the moment you feel a cold coming on, taken with a full glass of water. Repeat if necessary, according to directions in package. If at the same lime, throat is sore, gargle with three Bayer tablets in li glass water for almost instant relief. Bayer Aspirin acts to fight fever, and the aches and pains of a cold. Relief comes quickly.

Ask your druggist for genuine BAYER ASPIRIN by its full name not the name aspirin alone. 15, FOR A DOZEN 2 FULL DOZEN FOR 2S Virtually lea Tablet CIIIIIIIIXX Hi How to EASE a GO FOR I tit 2s Cat partment.

Admittedly without definite clueg, Winnebago county author ities are hoping that reports of Northwestern ballistics- experts will furnish a possible key to solution of the slaying of Herman Luhrsen, 50, Rockton service sta tioh proprietor. Funeral services for Luhrsen, a former prominent Beloit resident, were held at Beloit yesterday afternoon, the funeral parlors being crowded with Luhrsen's many friends, deeply shocked by his sudden death at the hands of a quick-triggered gunman; The only new developments in the case is a confirmed report that two men were seen in an automobile which pulled out of a skte street near Luhrsen's home and filling station about the time Luhrsen was shot Friday night. Reports "'that authorities have abandoned the robbery motive for Luhrsen's murder were spiked today by Sheriff Paul F.

Johnson, of Rockford, who said, "I think! robbery was the" motive so far as I can Despite rumors to the contrary, authorities admit they have uncovered no evidence to indicate the shooting occurred otherwise than Luhrsen explained it prior to his death. Luhrsen said a masked bandit shot him when, he hesitated to comply with an order to turn over his money. Luhrsen said the gunman took" $23 from one of his pockets after he had been shot and that he then obtained a bandit as the latter fled. Luhrsen still had $60 in his wallet when he was removed to the hospital, authorities say. MISS JESSIE COLVIX RITES HELD TODAY Rev.

STEWART i Central Press Columnist WASHINGTON, D. C-Before President Roosevelt delivered his message at the congress a state of litters among strict constitutionalists lest his address serve as a signal for the beginning of a campaign virtually to scrap the fundamental law of the country. Now constitutional amendment-ists are equally jittery because the executive address supported old-time principles if interpreted to meet modern conditions. It is to be borne in mind that several legislators had art amend-' mcnt each to offer at the current session on Capitol Hill. They expected respectively to make such amendments their principal stock in trade on Into the indefinite fu- ture.

And they looked for the ad-, ministration's blessing. At one fell swoop the admlnis-. tration has raid that at least for the present It is uninterested in them. BOTH SIDES RATTLED It is enough to rattle any politi cal speculator to have what he had counted on as his principal asset suddenly swept aside as of no im mediate value perhaps never. For that matter the constitutionalists are flabbergasted also.

The constitutionalists were all set to attach the administration folk as constitution Instead, the president puts It that he is the constitution's defender. Thus their thunder like-. wise is stolen. AS TO SUPREME COURT Thus a complete readjustment of tactics is necessary on both sides. That it embarrasses conservative 'Republicanism, by knocking it out as ah issue, of course is a matter of no regret to the White But there is an unmanagable i Democratic element which the administration doubtless wished to call in to heel, too.

This element planned to rush and hustle the president into a program of its own devising. The president has put the husher on that element also. i And there are constitutlon-j amending radicals of both parties whom he doubtless desired to curb not crush but qualify. How much, of a warning the president intended to convey to the supreme court Is problematic, Today's supreme court. is con VHifS WHAT This decrease was all in the corn (belt states with most of it in the Prairie grange 'will meet oirj western corn belt area.

No secret is made of their hope for another adverse five-to-four That, they feel, would be the best possible break the president could get. More than anything -else, they think, it would check the revolt against Jjis plan, justify his attempt to bend the court to his will. It might put it over. However, in the face of that, no one who respects the court wants to see it flinch or believes it wilL It would not be a court worth defending if it did.

IAA Says Drastic. Action Is Needed to Curb Crashes The Grim Reaper had a big year on the highways in 1936. In fact, it was the biggest year he has ever had, according to the safety department of the Illinois Agricultural association. More than 38,500 people were killed on highways last year: This number is "highest traced to automobile accidents in history. Each year it his been getting worse, warns M.

'A'. i How to start the auto accident curve in the other direction is the foremost question the country today, the IAA statement declares. Will this awful slaughter bring back prohibition? Will speed laws again be enacted in all states? Will governors on auto mobile engines limiting their speed become necessary equipment? Will everyone be com pelled to pass a driving examination before using the highway? Will antiquated cars be policed off the roads? Will high schools be compelled to put in classes in proper driving methods? Will the use of highways become a privilege rather than a right? "Why not." asks the IAA. "Drastic action is needed. It is First Rodeo The first rodeo, colorful cowboy sport, was held at Pecos, more than fifty year ago.

OR LP servative. President Roosevelt almost specifically said that he wants a liberal one. It can become liberal in two ways. If enough of its old-time reactionary members kindly will die some of them are very aged ha can appoint enough liberals in their places to change its complexion. Or its membershln can be In creased sufficiently uo enable him to swamp the bench with liberal Justices.

This needs no constitutional amendment A simple act of congress is ade quate and President Roosevelt can dictate the act of congress. I am not sure that the average elector understands the difference, A congressional vote can pass a mere law. It takes 36 states to ratify a constitutional amendment.

Shanghai, China, we read, is a great cotton goods producing center. Up to now we didn't think Shanghai produced anything but international crises.

You're Telling Mc! i VAREETY OF SCORES THE DEAL shown was played for game by North and South at four different calls. The hand appeared in a duplicate game, aggregate scoring, honors being counted.

Only East and West were vulnerable. At some tables all four suits were bid, as well as no trumps. 4AKJ103 JI0 4 7 2 8 3 2 4 None VAKQ73 4A5 AQ1062 Five out of eight tables played the hand at no trumps. All five went game. Three tied for score, winning all but two tricks at no trumps.

One South player went game at hearts. Another one went game at clubs. Top score went to a North player, who went game at spades. He scored 120 for game points won, with 100 added points for honors, while the pairs playing no trumps and taking 11 tricks scored only 160 points. It is not difficult to see how so many tricks were won at no trumps, but it may not be so evident how game was made at spades, without defenders being able to prevent It Another unexplained puzzle Is how "any player was allowed to play the deal at a NEW INSURANCE CODE CAMPAIGN IS UNDER WAY (Continued from Page 1) come when the statutes should be put into simple language, easily understandable, and in compact 2.

One of the balloons burst and its occupant was dashed to bits, while the other sailed safely away. This is the first record of fight in the air.
