Oreen, the Nov. 4 campaign issue is "whether the people of Cook county shall name their judiciary or whether it will be named by the Kelly-Nash machine." The governor spoke last night at a rally opening the Republican campaign In behalf of a slate of Judicial nominees. Mayor Edward Kelly had previously defined the Democratic issue as being "a civic duty to reelect good Judges." For 21 places on the Cook county superior bench, the Democrats are supporting a coalition ticket including the 20 sitting Judges, among them seven Republicans. The locally dominant Democrats nave pointed out that the Republicans agreed to Judicial coalitions in some past years. "We wanted a nonpartlsan campaign and the Republicans are injecting politics into it." the mayor told his county commltteemen. Joining Oreen at the Republican Judicial rally were Senator C. Wayland Brooks, County Chairman John T. Demneey, State Chairman Ben L. Berve, Lieut. Oov. Hugh W. Cross, Attorney •General George F. Barrett and Treasurer Warren Wright. "This is going to be a real election," the governor said. "We .Are pledged to a fight, an unalterable fight, a finish fight against the Kelly-Nash machine. We have the responsibility of making a continuing fight against bipartisan deals." Roast Beef Prices Are Slow to Rise Pork Is ot Premium Due to U. S. Buying Bv William Ferris CHICAGO — <AP» — A slice of roast fwef costs little, if any. more today than it did last year, but if you want, a pork chop you'll have to put out coaMderably additional money for it. Why? Two factors— government pork and lard buying plus record rattle production—have combined to create some startling changes in normal meat price relationships, livestock men say. Federal buying began about mid- March. From March 15 to Sept. 30, department of agriculture figures showed today, the government purchased 220.288.87» pounds of lard, 122jB31.224 pounds of canned pork and 193.859.500 pounds of cured and frozen pork. What this means to the average consumer Is illustrated best by statistics on American per capita consumption, as compiled by the agriculture department. Last year each averaged 14.7 pounds of lard and 734 pounds of pork. Thus enough pork already has been purchased by the government to meet the annual requirements, based on last year's consumption of more than 4.000,000 Americans, and enough lard for about 14,000,000. These purchases were made for the Red Cross, domestic and war refugee relief and, easily most important of all in the opinion of livestock men, for lease-lend shipment to Great Britain. Total meat exports in July were 85.478,000 pounds, of which less than 7 per cent was beef and the remainder pork and lard. Buying of beef has been small, usually cheaper cuts, and apparently is for domestic relief rather than lease-lend purpose*, livestock circles say. Fretth pork loins are selling wholesale in Chicago today at about 18 to 33 cents a pound, against 14 to li cents a year ago. This ls a gain of nearly 30 per cent Similar increases have been recorded elsewhere. Roommates Again CAOTHACUE. ILL. — (AP)-Fdr three years Kilns Honker of Manly, Iowa, and Rof have been roommates at Carthage college. Last week both underwent appendectomies. Now they are roommates in a hospital at Keokuk, Iowa. . • Federal Official Sees Record Market for Oil FORT WORTH, TEXAS — (A*)— The highest consumption ever known in the oil industry is forecast to the interstate compact commission by Dr. A. G. White, chief of the bureau of petroleum economics of the bureau of mines. White told the quarterly meeting of the commission yesterday that crude oil demand would rise from six to seven per cent during IMS as an average for the year.

Ickes make a statement of the exact functions of his office and their range in the oil industry, and that added assurance be given the rommliiVm that whiatt Uw VCtatat national defense eiueigaaxy should pass the office of federal petroleun coordinator also should cease, was refused.
