Cleaners and Dyers To Feel the Ef fed of National Defense The day IB not far distant when your clothes will not come back from the cleaners and dyers on wire hangers and they will be In shorter paper bags made of cheaper stock, accord- Ing to J. M. MaUon, managing director of the National Association of Dyers and Cleaner*. "At the moment." Mr. Mfttson states, "tnere arc three Items of importune* to the cleaners and dyers that are on the critical list. They are,, in order of Importance. chlorinated solvents, wire hangers and wrapping supplies.' 1 October 15, he said, chlorinated solvents were put under priorities to assure' supplies for food fumigation. Under this regulation the cleaning and dying Industry will be allocated only 50 per cent of its normal requirements. Restrictions are being clamped down, too, on wire, according to Mr. Matson. He expressed the hope that the Industry might be left enough wire to provide hooks for wooden hangers. Many cleaners, he said, aware that millions of wire hangers are hanging in American homes, are asking for their return. "When the present stocks of wire already purchased for wire hangers an exhausted," he said, "we will have no more of this Item until the emergency is over." There is a* similar scarcity of papers. he continues. The ouUook for wrapping supplies for 1M2 I* that a shortage of aome five million tons is expected The demand next year will be X million tons, while the available supply will be but 21 million. The national association already has recommended that all garment bag* be made out of 25-pound stock instead of 30-pound, and ttiat all bag* He, made shorter. This ahould aavt abeut 25 per cent, Mr. Matson estimates. He predicts that perhaps some time soon wool garments will be~ delivered without any protective bags. Funeral kites for Harold W.

"BELLE STARR" ( IIIIVES AT THE STATE Theatre Sot, Nov. 1st Put Up Snow Fences Along Highways; Sign Winter Near District Foremen Begin Installation Of Fences This Week .Tusf another evidence of approaching winter the maintenance division of the Illinois highway department at Dlxon has started erecting the many miles of snow fence along the principal hlchways of the district. The state department had ordered the districts throughout the state to pet the equipment ready by October 20 which was done. The snow plows have been put in condition for use and the work of putting up the snow- fences wM started the first of this week. The snow blsdes are easily attached in front of the state trucks end have in the past been very effective in removing snow from the pavements. The large plows are sent out to any part of the district where the smaller ones are unable to cope with the situation. The district foremen are charged with the task of putting up the snow fencing In their respective district*. It Is assured that the department will be thoroughly organised before the first snows. By taking to the highways as noon as. there Ls Indication of a snow storm, the district forces usually are able to keep the main highways clear. When this cannot be done a call Is put through to the Dlxon headquarters and the heavier equip ment is sent out. During the last severs! years, with this system of snow fighting In use, there have been but few times when the highways were blocked with snows. The worst place*, where strong winds drift the snow onto the highways, are protected with snow fences which have proved very effective In keeping the drifts off the highway.

Allan Billman. pastor of the De KaJb Methodist church, former pastor of Fourth Street Methodist church in this city, writes that De Kalb Is all worked up over the football game with Sterling at DeKalb Friday night.

He hopes to get down on the field and, talk with th« Sterling boys before the game. His daughter Bttty -haa refused to accept or wear a "Beat Sterling" tag and he says he myst confess that ft gives htm a sort of upside down feeling to see so much anti- Sterling demonstration. He drops the hint that if some of the Sterling folk don't drop In to say hello on Friday night while they are In De Kalb that he will feel badly about it.
