IKmMi-m Six GAR Monument in Central Park Is In Bad Condition So Badly Worn That Many Names Cannot Be Any Longer Read Someone, whether it be the Amer- !c»n Lesion, the W. R. C . or one of the othrr patriotic organizations of the city, .should niakr- arrangements to rehabilitate the G A. R. monument in Central park. The .--tone has become ro badly worn that it is impossible to read a majority of the names carved thereon. The monument was erected in IBS? and unveiled on July 4 of that year. Labor was much cheaper then than now and the total cost was only $5,000. Upon it lire carved the names of every soldier who died In Sterling so far as the records could be found. There are probably, close to 1.000 names on the four side.*;, even the base being used. But the weather ha* worn these names down in some places until they cannot be read. About 15 years ago the late Walter Moore was engaged by the city to have all these names outlined in black paint. The paint has stood up In part to this date. In other places, It. too. has been worn away. It has been suRgeMed that the Dry Weifhtr and Wind Badly Needed for Corn And Soybean Crops Farmers *'ho were in the city to- tiny ar.jeri. that it will take n lot of dry weather and ftn Immense amount of sunshine to salvage *ome of the corn crop and most of the toy benn crop in this vicinity. The foy bean crop h«s been b»d- ly injured by the continued wet weather, while « lot of the corn Is tor vet for cribbing. Inasmuch us, if cribbed in its present condition, it is liable to rot. Plenty of sunshine and light winds *in. the farmers say. work wonders. In many instances the heavy winds which accompanied the ram bent stalks to thr ground Sprouting of ears, rot and mold have been reported iii ninny fields. Dry weather and Rood fall winds would materially improve the quality of both the soybean and corn crops, farmers sav. STERLING DAILY GAZETTE. STERLING. ILLINOIS Boy Arrested Here Wednesday Night Confesses Crimes Implicates Other Boys in Admission To Rockford Police easiest way to handle the matter > would be to paint all of the *ur- laces that are engraved with paint, then to wipe it off the raised portions, leaving the sunken " portions filled. The cost would be so great that It Is doubtful if the city could fi nance such a proposition, but there — may be some organization that could handle it and, with it. the pointing Up of the Joints which are in bad •bape, also, in some places. Dessert* Luncheon And Card Parry Held Thursday afternoon card party •pooapred by the American Legion auxiliary, was a pleasant affair for the large group of ladies aurrounding the tables. A dessert luncheon was served by Mrs. John Xftunkm and her committee of Rock Falls ladle*. Numerous prizes were awarded, Beautiful bouquets of chrysanthemums decorated the rooms in Pat- tenon Memorial Legion home. Housing Improved In Sterling Among Needy Families Housing conditions among the poor of Sterling township have improved 100 per cent in the past year, according to Supervisor John Phelps, who has been making a check prior to the coming of winter. Mr. Phelps states that where, a year or two ago. a certain percentage of the needy lived In hovels, tents and shacks, it. is difficult to longer find such conditions. Just what has brought this regeneration about is questionable. One. reason is probably that tnany more people are now at work, or, at least, working part time. Another is that Mr. Phelps has demanded that these people secure better housing. He has assisted a certain percentage of them. He states that he finds many of these people are willing to improve their conditions, but have no idea of how to bring the change about. Af. ter a certain amount of coaching their apathy disappears and they appear more willing to help themselves. Whatever the reason, housing conditions are greatly improved. Harry Smith, IB. Rockford. the you'll who was taken from a west bound bus In this city Wednesday nleht. was a member of a KR that had committed several crimes at Rockford. H« Implicated Harry R. Dlckos. 19. find Roy Haibin, 21 both of Fockfoni. Smith told the polire he staged the holdup at the Lock\rood sen-ice station in Rockford Monday nishl to "find out If he had courage enough" He confessed he Magcd the holdup of the station while Dlckos waited outside the .station for him. Smith recently passed the written tests for admission to An- nopolis naval academy but was turned down because of "fx>or eyesight. He is well educated and for hours parried the detectives' questions but finally broke down and confessed the holdup and several robberies. Lot valued at $700, taken from the home of Laurel Carlstrom and Joseps Olson, was recovered in the basement of the Dickos home. Smith told officers he used a glrl- Itah" accent to cover his real identity in the service station holdup. When he entered the station he saw * high school friend and became so confused he almost forgot about the holdup and if they hadn't handed him the $32 he would have left without it. He buried part of the clothing he wore that night and horned other parts of it. Dr. H.J.

Error Made in Official Report of Supervisors In the official report of supervisors' proceedings, amongst the Justice of peace and constable claims appeared one giving the name of Fred Longabaugh for assault and battery. Tliis was a mistake in the filing of claim and making of report as the warrant was not for Fred Longabaugh but was a John Doe warrant issued on behalf of and "involving transients »hose names wen; unknown who happened to be stopping at the trailer camp owned by Mr. Longstaugh and Mr. Andrews. Mr. Longabaugh was not involved in any such offense, and, of course, was not convicted thereof as the report of proceedings might «eem to indicate.
