The reserve gamr will start at 6:30 o'clock, fol- [nought nothing special of It. lowed by the varsity contest about t 8 o'clock. Although few practices have been possible this week because of the rainy weather and muddy field, the teams appear to b all ready for the tests of the season. Only the games will prove what mental shape members of the teams are in. Indications arc that the boys realize that they will be the hardest games of the season, and so are making plans for tough contests. Plans are for Rock Falls schools' band also to attend the game In uniform, and perform betwee halves and at intervals. All of th members of the teams and band wl make the trip ty bus and autos. Th reserve team will leave the hig school building about 4:30 o'clock ir a bus. while members of the var slty squad will leave about 6 o'cloc in cars. Both Rochelle and Rock Falls ar undefeated in conference play. Rochelle wins the varsity game, the will have undisputed title to th championship, while the same is tru for Rock Falls, pending a victor) over Oregon at Rock Falls the fol lowing Friday. The Roc. Falls team has made an unusual record that has received state recognition, being on of 20 teams that has not lost no tied a game this season. When the all-state conferenc team is chosen, Rock Falls should be well represented. Arthur Barnhart is almost a sure member, if he com pletes the season as he has per formed to date. Other candidates should be Card, George. Geringer and L. Hunsberger. Damken shoul also be considered, for he is one o few centers in the state with a near .perfect record In passing. Spence also has improved greatly, and his passing arm would be a great hel; an)' team. imon li filiation And Annual Banquet For G. A. A. on Nov. 18 Initiation for the freshmen join ing O. A.

USHA Head Criticizes Duplication of Efforts In Defense Housing WASHINGTON — (AP)—Nathan Straus, administrator of the United States housing authority, testified Wednesday that duplication of efforts by government agencies had led to costly confusion in the defense housing program. Criticizing methods used by the federal works administrator and the defense housing coordinator. Straus told the senate defense Investigating committee that the trained staff of his agency had been raided by Its government competitors in their efforts to net up duplicating organizations while ignoring the established USHA facilities. The witness said this had resulted, in the army and navy being given $100.000.000 for defense housing and the federal worts administration a total of s300.000.000. He said part of the latter was spent through the public building administration, part through a newly created division of defense housing and some through the mutual ownership division. In addition, he said, some funds were made available to the farm security administration and some to the TV A. All of this, Straus testified, had led to the wrong location of projects the establishment of incorrect rent schedules, "bewilderment of the communities served and resulting delays."

"You can call it the end of an era," he said. "We have not returned to photographic realism, or the sweet pictures on calendars, but we are beginning to paint or carve with more mastery and meaning." This 52nd annual show, hung inside the door guarded by the two bronze lions on Michigan boulevard, was the first to be picked entirely by the institute staff. Formerly an art Jury chose half the entriec, and the Institute invited the others. The five-man Jury which awarded •2.500 in prizes to the exhibitors, was unstinting in its praise of one painting by Ivan Albright of War- renvlUe. HI. The artist worked 10 years on the picture which won the Norman Walte Harris silver medal and $500. It depicts a door, larger than life star, with a funeral wreath in the center.

GOP Group Opposes Placing Wage Curbs In Price Control Bill WASHINGTON — 'AP' - Rr- publican .numbers of the house bunking committee lined up in opposition yesterday to inclusion of WBK- es in the admtnLstration's price control bill. It was learned, and indication. 1 ; were they would also trj to rx- clude control of farm prices. Informed legislators snid the attitude of the Republicans probably would determine the issue as to both wages and farm prices as some of the Democratic members of the committee also are opposed to their inclusion. Informed sources said Chairman 8t*agall <D-Ala> offered a/jcompro- mlse amendment on the watte question today to prohibit pay increases which would result in higher commodity prices. The Republicans opposed the proposal. Rep. Wolcott <R-Mich>, senior minority committee member, told newsmen that although he was not speaking for his colleagues, he thought the Republicans were virtually agreed that, there should be no interference with existing machinery for the regulation of labor and farm prices. "As far as I am concerned," he said, "they can leave both labor and farm prices out of the bill. If there is any need for further control of them, that need can be met very simply by amendments to existing laws which are applicable." Strong committee sentiment also appeared to be developing in favor of the administration's "selective" system of price control as opposed to the universal plan proposed by Rep. Gore (D-Tenn). The latter would freeze all prices, wages, profits, rent* and other factors of cost which are in effect on the date of enactment of the law and then permit adjustments as they prove necessary. of Canrrr. ?nd the Chic ft 50 Can^rr Cnmmitifr.
