Only a small portion of the township lies in the levee district, whose tax rate is computed in adjoining St. Clair County. In order to speed the work of local tax collections, Miss Hotz has arranged for release of the Edwardsville township books to the local collector to permit him to proceed with collections until the levee district rate is forthcoming from St. Clair County for extension in the books. Exclusive df the levee district extensions, yet to be completed, the total amount of taxes charged on the Edwardsville township books for, local collection this spring is $707,897.75, including $40,267.08 in back taxes. Railroad taxes extended, also exelusive of the levee district extensions, amount to $58,549.54. Collector books of 18 other townships have been completed at the county clerk's office. The Olive township books were finished Tuesday.

The manpower pool of older registrants-still is too small to fill the majority of monthly quotas, Col. Paul G. Armstrong, state selective service director, said Wednesday. Armstrong said he did not know what the Illinois June draft- quota would be. The state quota, however, has been averaging about six per cent of the national call, with about 46 percent coming from downstate and the remainder from Cook County. This indicates that about 1,920 Illinois men may be called for induction in June.
