For a number of Jtenrs Mrs Hunter, formerly of tyor- rison. hns been R tracher In China. her w-htxM being located 16 miles Jrom Pekin and In a rural district. From thr description of her home the rltib members felt that Mrs. Hunter has as many conveniences there ns we enjoy here In America. She told of thr construction of the house, which is a brick structure, and of her vegetable garden, -where nil the seasonable vegetables are grown and also various kinds of berries. For their movies the family poes Into Pekln to s«€ the latent films, Mrs. Hunter was forced to return •with her children to the-JIm'ted States because of the war, and her husband joined them summer. Her furloiiRh i* up one year from August and If conditions are such thnt they may return the family expects to do so. Mr. Hunter may even RO earlier to another part of China where he can continue teaching Upon the arrival of the family In China, Mrs. Hunter stated, a Chinese amah was assigned to them -and this Rlrl has become a member of their family.. Ten women In the compound also formed a mothers club to further friendliness and have kept In contact with each other through the years. Teaches Enf Ibh It was nece.ssary for Mrs. Hunter to learn the Chineise language before she could teach the English language which is her subject in the school. Her husband has charge of the agriculture department and they are rwtpoasible for having Instigated a sort of county fair In their part of the country, where the natives bring their handwork and vegetables Jto exhibit. Much interest ha* developed Tn these fairs. Several prominent Chinese women were mentioned by the speaker among them a Dr. Wu. who was leader of the Chinese delegation at the Madras conference in India. Al of the neoP'« who are leaders in the country arc graduate* of American schools. Mrs. Hunter stated which makes an added bond between the countries. However, now since the educational system has expanded in the country, some of the students educated in the schools there can go out among their people as teachers. During the war Mrs. Hunter says that the Chinese women are doing . their part as nurses and working with the Red Cross and other organizations. Three of the . best books wlileh. best tell the story o the Chinese women as mentioned by Mrs. Hunter were "The Thre« 81s- __ters" by Spencer, "Dawn Watch In China" by Joy Homer and "Keys of the Kingdom" by A. J. Cronln. Mrs. H. P. Daggett Introduced the •peaker. Por the musical part of the afternoon's program Mrs. Roscoe Eadei sang in lovely voh-e a Chinese number, "When Ha Come*."

OfTicinLs in the offi'-e of Secretary of State Edward J. Munlies prepnr-> ed today for the wholesale diMnbu-j tlon of application blanks throueh- out the slat* next work, and announced the new license pistes would go on sale shortly after Dec. 1. The 1842 plate* will have orange numeral* on a black background, a reversal of the 1841 color combination of black numerals in an orange field. The plates now nre in production at the Hemp <t Co. factory in Macomb. So far this year over 1.800.000 sets of plates have been issued, a new record, and indications are the 1942 demand will be even greater. Contract* Placed Early Because the legislature this year voted a special $600.000 appropriation for a two-year supply of plates, Illinois placed early cotnracts for both 1942 and 1943 and hasn't had to resort to the use of steel substitutes In license manufacture. Some states, where contractors have encountered difficulties ui obtaining steel due to national defcasc demands, have adopted plastics as substitute while others have reduced licenses below normal size. In still other states, only one license piste will be issued for each vehicle next year instead of the usual two. Officials in Secretary Hughes' office said no decision had yet been reached a* to whether Illinois motorists would be asked to surrender their 1941 plates at the time they receive new ones. This proposal recently was made unofficially by defense authorities in Washington. Collection of the new federal automobile use tax. of $5 a year per ve hide, will be separate from the issuance of state licenses. The feder-> al tax is effective next Feb. 1, and internal revenue officials here snld the tax stamps would be available in January at the revenue collection offices in Chicago. 81 ISVII.LE. KV. — f API — Th« -tit of the Association of Mill" nrcrnn^ of the United States H! todr.y many young medical rive officers called into active service were shirking their duty In thr national defense program. "These younp men must realize that they nre required for military tiaininc to tnke part in the defense nf their country—not to RO to school for thrir personal benefit," Colonel Hnrold C. Corbuslcr of PlainfleM, N. J.. said at the opening of the association's annual convention. Already more than 11,000 medical officers and more than twice that many nurses and other assistants are working in the armed forces and doing everything from treating bunions to operating on the brnln, Colonel Corbuslcr snld. "nnd many of them nre sacrificing a great deal In income nnd the comfort of their fami- llcr,." "But. he continued, "in many Instances, newly commissioned medical officers have sct-t in their reslg- nntlons because they seemed to think thnt they were not receiving proper experience, thnt is, for early work which would be of valu» -to them in private practice later. "This attitude has no place in the mind;, of patriotic citizens." Wipe your stove with a rag #»ked with vinegar before polishing. This removes all grease. Beware Coughs ffrOM MMMi «Wt That Hang On Creorhulsion relieves promptly ba- cause it goes right to the seat of tte trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm, and aid Data* to soothe and heal raw, tender.
