HlOt *JVO IM MIUII All-Weather Roads Now Serve More than Twice as Many Farms as in 1930 All-weather roads now serve more than twice as many Illinois farms as In 1030 it was pointed out today by Allen D. Mtnvel, director of re- searofe and taxation for thf Illinois Agricultural association. Recently Issued census figures. Manvel said, show that last year 70.9 per cent of all Illinois farms were located on a paved or gravel road, as compared with 33.5 per cent in 1930 and only 322 per cent in 1925. The percentage of farmers reported adjoining each type of roari in 1940. is as follows: Adjoining paved road. 16.7 per cent; adjoining gravel road. MJ per cent; adjoining Improved dirt road. 15.9 per cent; adjoining unimproved dirt road, 13.2 per cent. The IAA has long recognized the necessity ol a much more extensive Improvement of our highways for the purpose, of enabling fanners to have all year use of cars and trucks. For this reason, It favored not only the development of the state and federal hard roads system but also the improvement of local roads sufficiently to carry farm traffic.

H chose to speak of "The Devil. Hla Oripin. His Career and HU Down fall." With unusual clarity, he pic tured .Satan, not as the hideou. looking being we imagine him to be but as the anpel of light, Lucifer wjhom God created as the highest o the angels, who, because of hL pride, fell, and was cast out c heaven. He was created (to be God protector, but he attacked the very throne he was created to protec Though he \x not all-wise, all-pow erful. or everwhere present, he able to do much damage on earth He if, the cause o( all wars, he ca cause sickness, storms, etc. recognised that it was the devil wh caused the storm on the Sea o Oaltlee. which threatened to drown Him and the diaciplex, but He wan able to calm the storm by speakln to the vile force back of it. Rev Mr. Rollins spoke of Satan's ambi tion for power, his desire to be wor snipped and to be God Himsel His personality is just as real as that of God; he is referred to 17 time* in the Bible and he has sure ly left his footprints in the sand of time. Because special recognition was given to mothers, the story for th children, told by Mrs. Rollins, an the special music, were very appropriate. Mrs. Arthur Crofton san "Where Is My Wandering Boy" an a response. "Tell Mother I'll B There." was sung by the Rev. K. C Bechtel. Messrs Galen Hauger, Hen ry Brubaker and Lev!
