Gran <!on. editor and publisher of The Sterling Daily Can-He, cnllrd thi morning and r^-nd me a letter l\f wrote Governor Green Sept. 21. 1941 and the governor's reply, which in dicftU-d that the Governor recogniz ed the importance of modernizing the Lincoln highway and was fn vorable to it hut stated that high way recogntrrd as valuable for de fense. purposes mldht have priority "A season has passed since th stretch of highwav west of Sterling was made a side road and the route numbering removed and con verted to other highways, with thi effect that a large part of the trnf fie is now diverted around Sterling and the other cities on the Lincoln highway. "TliIs. route was fi part of the MO. 000.000 lx>nd i-viie established b; vote of the people and was known B* Route 6. nnd extended In « gen eral westerly direction to Fulton, af fording Chicago.

"The highway department established the route which has been in use for. over 20 years. People fel that nfter a route has been established in response to a vote of the people that It would not be taken away from them overnight. People have a right to assume that the officials who were supposed to represent them would at least give the public a hearing on a major change of the character secretly carried out No one had any Intimation tha the numbering of the old route which had been in use for over 20 years, was to be removed and the road turned into a side road, ant the through tourists from Maine and California given more consideration than the people of Illinois who are building and paying for these roads. Seme Ite "This stretch of highway has served its purpose with all the traffic for 20 years and certainly can carry at least a fourth of it at the present time. This change made by your predecessors should not be tolerated by your administration, and in the interests of the businessmen of Sterling and other cities along the old route, I respectfully ask that there be no further delay in restoring the numbering to the ok route until a decent and fair substitute can be built. This can easily T>« done when finances will permit, by a road from Gait along the north side of the Chicago is North Western railroad tracks with a suitable junction north of Agnew—not the kind of a junction we now have which cannot be seen until one's automobile has passed the junction "U. S. Route 330 runs through Sterling, north of Rock river, and U. S. 30 south of Rock Falls, south of Rock river. Sterling-Rock Falls is a six square miles township, has a population of over 20,000 and the largest population center on R6ckrrlver;s0uth"and-west- of Rockford. Shews Need fer Bridge 'There are two bridges at Sterling crowing Rock river. The First avenue bridge was built by the city of Sterling and has a subway under the Chicago & North Western railroad tracks which is inadequate for general traffic. Although it was built and paid for by the city of Sterling. It is a part of State Route 18 and the city has never been reimbursed for any part of the coVt and has been furnishing bridge ser vice on this route for many years. The other bridge, known as the Avenue' O bridge, was bui(t by the town of Sterling and Whiteside county, and is about ready to col- apse. Its condition has been of heavy state traffic creasing it due to the Inadequacy of the other bridge. It is absolutely necessary that another bridge b* built in 1042 as otherwise this bridge will probably have to be closed. I enclose newspaper items in The Oasette re- atlng' to this situation. Of course, the town of Sterling and the county of Whiteside probably could raise the money to rebuild this bridge. Why should this be the only point on Rock river where there is no adequate bridge built by the state connecting the various highways? ."The Avenue O bridge crosses Lawrence park on an island in the middle of the river which serves as a recreation center for people for more than a hundred miles in every direction. On some Sundays there are as many as 9.000 people at this park. I venture to aay that the bridges of Sterling are used by anywhere from 10 to 100 times as many people and vehicles.-as the other bridges up and down Rock river, except the bridges at Dlxon. The state has built bridges at Oregon. Dixon, Conio. Prophetstown, Hlu&dale and U about to build one at Grand Detour. This covers the mire length of Rock river below Rockford except Sterling and Rock Falls. "When the Dixon bridge collapsed, a new $500.000 bridge was promised within 24 hours and built within a ew months. Dixon had the influence of its state highway olflc* and a prominent Democratic pofi- iclan. Sterling has nothing to present except the Justice of its cause and the actual necessity for a auit- ble bridge for north and south raffle at this location.

As soon as Horner eot in 'as governor, through the influence of H prominent Democratic politician, the property nt Rock Falls was abandoned and the garage moved to Dixon. Under Gov. Emmerson's administration n state route was established from Sterling to Polo. A.s soon us Homer got In this was abandoned nnd the route moved over to Lee county although It has never been built, nnd the route from Sterling remains a side road. These are a few samples of the. penalty Whiteside county has had because it has always stood by the Republican party. "I am told that some Republican politicians say. "What is th<* use of doing anything for Whlt«v.ide county? It is In the bag anyway." I do not believe that either of YOU gentlemen approves such n policy. "While Sterling may not have as many applicants for office as some other cities in'this vicinity, it has a lot of fine, well educated, successful people whom you possibly may not have met "due to the fact that' they are not political applicants for any appointment or favor. This leads me to say that while I am not advocating creating jobs merely to create appointments, it would seem In view of Sterling's exceptional record as a Republican stronghold, it Is worthy, of Its share of appointments, Including one or two good ones. "I hope that the highway situation west of Sterling and the application for the new bridge at Avenue G will not be pigeon-holed, but that they will have your immediate and favorable consideration.'

Pur suit of the retreating enemy Is be ing continued." Nails Insist Reds Are Licked German front-line dispatches said bad weather was proving a powerfu ally of the Russians, but asserted the red armies already were defeated from a military point of view and that a break in the weather would bring the destruction of remalnln) Soviet forces and "thus conclude the war in the east according to German plans. A red army bulletin reported tha fierce all-night fighting raged in the sectors of Mozhaisk, 57 miles west o Moscow, and Maloyaroslavets, 05 miles southwest of the U. S. 8.

At the start, prices went up on the strength of President Roosevelt's blunt joeecji last night saying that Americana "have taken their battle stations." When the initial rally led to broaden and trade faded away to a trickle, prices held steady until selling- In the December delivery, regarded as liquidation of hold- ngs by uncertain and nervous owners, tent the market below yesterday's finish. «ome of the selling was attributed o a broker who frequently operates 'or elevator interests and was interpreted as fear that elevator storage space would shortly be at a premium. Receipts were: Wheat $ can, corn •7. oats 11. Wheat cloead unchanged to % cent bushel higher than yesterday'* inish. December $U$*-%, May $UIH to $1.1$; corn tt lower to % higher; oata unchanged to % off. soybeans \i higher to % tower, rye unchanged to fc lower; and lard 3-1$ advanced. OA£H GKA1N PBORIA.
