Though each has been beaten once, both teams have been cutting down basketball giants right and left to win themselves the brand as the "teams to watch" as high school basketball · dribbles on to state tourney time. Paris, ranked No. 4, has a 14 to 1 won and lost record. The Robinson Maroons, in fifth place, boast a 12 to 1 card, dropping a lone game to Danville. Paris fell before Salem. The Strealor Bulldogs, who sur- brised everyone by dropping the ormer top spot Pekin Chinks, play a non-conference go with Ottawa, with the odds going to Streator.

"The feed situation is cast in a slightly more favorable light when the anticipated 13 per cent reduction in spring farrowing and the general downward adjustment in the number of other species of livestock arc taken into account" the departments said. They reported that feed grain supplies per unit of livestock are 16 per cent under the 1937-46 average, but almost equal to the average of the preceding 10 years. The delayed harvest of corn and soybeans was "largely completed" lak month, the departments reported, with only 10 per cent of the corn and five per cent of the soybeans remaining in field at mid-December.
