Do they know who killed George P. McNear, former president of the T., P. A W. railroad T The killing of Mr. McNear was a s e r " lonal neafa. story shortly before the end of the T., P. A W. strike. The strike had gone along for months with violence flaring several times. The worst was at Gridley when railroad guards shot down and killed two strikers.

Not long afterwards, Mr. McNear was shot down and killed. Then, the strike was settled. It had long been felt there was no solution as long as Mr. McNear remained president of the com­pany

Tin- railroad president was a man of strong convictions. He made many enemies in the com­paratively short time he brilliantly operated the railroad, taking it when it was in financial dif­ficulties and building it up to a strong business institution making big profits.

In a recent issue the tabloid Peoria News under the heading, "McNear Killer Is Known! But FBI Lacks the Proof,’’ carried the following story. "The Federal Bureau of Investigation knows who killed George P. McNear, the T., P. A W. railroad president, who was assassinated on a dark night when walking alone near his home on Moss avenue, the Peoria News learned this week.

"One or more arrests will be made when the FBI has additional evidence which It nows lacks to obtain a conviction.“The FBI will make no an­nouncement until Its Investigation Is complete but the fact that the killer or killers have been Iden­tified is known to a person well Informed on T., P. A W. affairs.

"This Informant said agents had applied scientific methods to the case. Footprints and the tracks left by the killer’s auto­mobile furnished bare clews which were developed by the FBI. These slender clews led to the Iden­tification of the owner of the car.

"Rewards aggregating 948,000 for the arrest and conviction of McNear’s slayer are still posted.” —Falrbury Blade.

Too F u tIt is all right for any admin­

istration to be in a hurry to get its work done and to expedi­tiously make every mow to carry out their party platform and promises. However, under a representative system, there are limits as to what should be done by "eager beavers" who want to rush through proposed legislation without the customary hearings and debate before Committees. It seems to the writer that practically all legislation consid­ered by tha Congress is important, or at least it should be. There­fore, the idea that any bill might well be pushed through without Committee hearings is a mistake. In this ever changing world with ever changing conditions, view­points and arguments can vary within a few months time. Also, under our system whereby both proponents and opponents are permitted their "day in court” or, in other words, their opportunity to appear before Committees of Congress, the proposal that hear­ings on certain legislation become unnecessary because such hear­ings were held last year or even the year before, deprives both the individual and Committee Members of the full opportunity for complete development of any pertinent ideas on the legislation offered. Without hearings, and giving opponents no chance to testify, the Senate Labor Com­mittee plans to almost lmme- J diately approve such bills as (1) Federal Aid to Education; (2) ( Creating a National Science Foundation through F e d e r a l ; grants and loans; (3) Increasing minimum .Wages from 40 to 76c an hour. Following the old adage "that haste makes waste" should at least In part slow up deliberate plans to "rush” legislation. In view of the known fact that Com­mittees this year were "stacked” by administration forces, role or reason may not be the guide In making decisions on Committee procedure.

trouble of breaking down the new 41.9 b i l l i o n dollar F e d e r a l budget for the fiscal year i960. The taxpayers of Illinois, for Instance, would have to Shell out 7.88% of this huge amount or a total of 8 billion, 301 million dollars. On the basis of our average family Of four, this could mean that if all such taxes were direct, Mr. and Mrs. John Doe of anywhere in Illinois would have to pay out approximately $1,260.00 yearly, more than $100.00 each month! (Remember this would be’approx­imately one year's operating cost of Uncle Sam's business.) Of course, If taxes are to be raised,

.the figure would increase. Orie way to completely understand what added taxes or increased expenditures mean is to see how such items fit into your own pocketbook. Then the individuals would know precisely how they fell about it. The 42 billion dol­lar budget will be raised as fol­lows: $18% billion from individual income taxes, almost 12 blllkm from corporation taxes, about 3 billion from taxes on goods and services (liquor, beer and tabacco taxes being over 3 Mi billion of this), employment,- estate and gift taxes amount to 1.7 billion and all other revenue aggregates about 2 Vi billion.

Direct LobbyingAt times great debate ant)

argument goes on in Washington as to lobbying and whether or not the lobbying act is working out successfully. This act makes any and all lobbyists register and in detail set forth who he lobbies for, plus what he is paid in sal­ary and expenses for such ac­tivities. Now It is learned that Mayor O'Dwyer of New York City is planning on sending a full time representative to Washington to work for and urge passage of any legislation which might be of benefit to New York City. Evidently, the Mayor feels that advantages can come from such an innovation and that his city stands to directly benefit thereby. One wonders what would happen If every municipality follows suit and sends a personal lobbyist to the Nation's Capital to try to persuade Congress into voting more and bigger funds to help finance city government. It would be only a guess as to how many cities' treasuries arc broke or have balances on hand. One thing certain Is that Uncle Sam has no money to give away and will be lucky ir he can carry his own burden of overwhelming debt.

lax collected before the war. Right now it appears the Hoover Commission report will - have roqgh sailing when it Is handed over to Congress. Today It is estimated that we liave 3 million alcoholics In the United States and 8 million people who drink too much. • ,

That BudgetDo you know how much 42

billion dollars is? In simple terras, it means 42 thousand mil­lions of dollars and represents the budget estimate recently requested by President Truman to operate our government for the fiscal year 1960, which begins July 1st, 1949. Three years after World War II, we are faced, during peacetime, with this un­precedented and stupendous out­lay of cash to keep the machinery of government functioning for the period of only 12 months. Thirty four percent, or slightly over one- third of the amount, is allocated for national defense purposes. Staggering as these total defense appropriations are, there seems, at the moment, no alternate but to vote such funds. Most Amer­icans stand convinced that true

preparedness calls for this spend­ing and that only through such policy can we hope to either put off or completely avert World War HI. Preparation for war, though much less expensive than real war, is costly and modern warfare much more so than the equipment of rifles and cannon. New, > up-to-date instruments, machinery and equipment, the most deathhdealtng and destructive ever known, cost a pretty penny. Until the minds of men of all nations are more* objectively channeled toward real peace, the United States dare - not, even momentarily, drop its guard. To do so would be folly.

Veterans AffairsMany listeners were surprised,

just as the writer was, when President Truman, in his "State of the Union” message to Congress and the country, completely failed to make any reference to Veterans Affairs. In the memory of those who have looked into the matter, this is probably the first time "veterans” have not been mentioned in such a speech since the time of World War I. Real soon after the message, veterans’

organizations began to 'speculate whether such omission by Presi dent Truman was an oversight or a forerunner of planned re­ductions benefits. Many immed­iately turned their thoughts back to the "Economy Act" of 1983 when drastic cuts for veterans were initiated because of desired reductions in government expen­ditures. Many injustices to the veterans followed the passage of the above-mentioned act. Veter­ans benefits for the next fiscal year will cost Uncle Sam near 8 billion dollars. I t is agreed that this is a huge outlay of funds, but when one ponders that there today are approximately 18 mil­lion veterans of our Armed Forces, it is not too hard to understand why the outlay for the deserving, needy, incapacitated and disabled veterans and their dependents runs high. Let’s have efficient, deserving and just op­eration of veterans affairs, but no more economy acts like the one of 1933.

Rom where I sit... Joe Marslt

Who's A Foreigner?

While I’m waiting for a hair­cut the other day, Slim Hartman lets slip with a crack about those “foreigners” who live by the depot.

“Now wait a minute, Slim," snaps Doc Sherman. “ Don’t forget we’re all ‘foreigners’ more or less. Some of our families have simply been here longer than others. But even if they came over on the May­flower, ^ney were foreigners to the Indians.”

Slim gets a little red and you could see that Doc had him. "And the reason they came here,” he goes

on, "was to find freedom to do and think as they wanted to bo long as they didn’t tramp on the rights of the other fellow."

From where I ait, America became the great land It is today through onr being tolerant of different peo­ple and different tastes—whether it’s ■ taste for square dsnriag or waltzing, radio or movies, goat’s milk or a temperate glass of spar­kling beer.

F o r A n s w e r t o P l a g u eWASHINGTON. - The United

States navy would like to know whatever happened to the bright young scientist it sent to South Africa in search of a snail eater

If the boy doesn't come back pretty soon, we're going to have to move out of Guam, not to mention Saipan, to make room for the giant African snails which are multiply­ing faster than the shmoo.

History of the snail plague is this:

A Capt^jn W. F. Jennings, assist­ant chief of naval operations on Guam, appeared before a house subcommittee wearing a weary look. He said that when the Japs first moved onto Guam they brought their lunch with them, snails, which the Nips dearly love.

The marines and G.I.s who took over had a lot of beans and spam and, hence, little appetite for snails. So the snails, left to their own devices, started to multiply.

Captain Jennings told the com­mittee the snails, measuring four to six inches in length and weigh­ing up to a pound and a half, were raising the very devil with vege­tation on Guam. There are 11,000 arable acres on the island—good for raising com, potatoes, peas, mel­ons and sugar, all liked by snails.

The navy yelped for help and the naval research council and the de­partment of agriculture responded. They sent a lone scientist to Africa, from whence came the snails, to find a natural enemy..

The man hasn't sent a report in, or even a “wish you were here" card. Investigators went through a flood of channels and couldn't even learn the man’s name, although the navy is sure it sent somebody down there.

VACATIONING WITH PAYAccording to press dispatches

there are 218 Illinois people in Florida enjoying the balmy climate and drawing unemployment com­pensation at the same time. The same dispatch states that up to last week 520 Illinois people had applied for unemployment com­pensation while spending the winter in the south. The benefi­ciaries were said to be mostly domestics, bartenders, waitresses and others who are employed seasonally.

that the one-family farm is slowly being absorbed, and that is sad­dening to those of us brought up on thbse kind of farms in Illinois. But, as they constantly warn us —time marches on.

THOSE POLLSIf the recent election did noth­

ing else but show the American people that you can’t trust polls as the sure guide to public opin­ion, it did something most benefi­cial. We had about reached the place where we were guided in our thinking by what the polls said. We were mental sheep, following a trend that we thought was the popular way to think. We were letting others do our brain work for us. Evidently the attitude had not reached the point where there was no recovery from our lethargy. Believing ini statistics as ihe final word, not! using mental effort to figure out for ourselves, was becoming too popular a habit. It is well we were awakened, even though it has caused some red faces among the pollster# who had it all doped out for us ahead of time.

Family Ufa Htld Strong Amid Industrial Chanfts

DETROIT. — The contemporary American family la far from any danger of disintegrating because of change in the national Industrial pattern—it is simply changing Its own pattern In response to changes It encounters.

This, and other statements of praise for the family unit in tha nation were delivered by author­ities on family life at the fifth bi­ennial meeting of the Family Serv­ice Association of America. 0

Speakers declared available evi­dence Indicates that tha adaptabil­ity of the family constitutes one of its principal strengths.

Dr. Charles 8. Johnson, sociolo­gist, declared that “In a dynamic society such as we have In Amer­ica, virtue does not Inhere in sta­bility but In adaptability to greatly accelerated social change."

Dr. Johnson said the American family has been undergoing a "pro­found and, to many students and social workers , a disturbing change." He referred to authorities who cite the increase in divorce, or the number of mothers holding jobs, as evidence the family Is breaking down as s social institu­tion.

The speaker declared that this. Instead of evidence of disintegra­tion, may be studied as a phase of the social orientation of the fam­ily in adjusting to the recasting of the role of the family, the changing status of women in Western cul­ture, and greatly accelerated so­cial change.”

The educator asserted also that the "tradition of unquestioned mala dominance in a family situation is in conflict with the democratic ideal of our society that huabands and wives are equal and that children’s personalities should be respected."

Educational Council Further Discusses Unit School Affairs

The Chatsworth Educational Council held Its second meeting on Thursday night, January 20th, at the high school. About twenty members of the council and Inter­ested parties spent a couple of hours discussing the unit system, the local educational need In ten more years, possible- consolidation with other high school districts and the size of the new proposed gymnasium.

Possibilities of joining with For­rest and Strawn, or with Piper City or with Culiom were discuss­ed without any recommendations being made. The territory In the local petition will support a high school and there Is much senti­ment to .force the county superin­tendent to call an election.

As matters stand now Chats­worth and Forrest each have a pe­tition for a unit district which should be up for a vote soon. If the -vote passes one board will be elected to conduct all 12 grades. If It fails the present grade and high school territories will remain as at present. There is no sen­timent at all which favors any consolidation which would take the high school out of town. The new Ag building and the new gym which may be started this spring wllf give Chatsworth the finest secondary school set-up in this ter- ritory.

Some fans were present to try to have the plans of the new gym revised to seat more patrons. The blue prints are complete but can be changed of course. The plans call for three more rows of bleach­ers than Piper City; six feet longer (thus giving end room for seats) and a wider stage About 1500 can be taken care of, which may or may not be enough for a town of 1,000.

Piper City has invited local school boards to a meeting there this Saturday evening. Professor Lindstrom of the U. of I., is to speak| Forrest and Strawn have also organized a guest meeting for Chatsworth. Mr. Cox of the Il­linois Agricultural Association will be the speaker on February 10th at the Forrest high school gym.

Wednesday, February 9th, has been Bet for the county council meeting so local patrons may rest assured that when a vote is finally called, all avenues of that will have been explored.

Bluebirds Win a Game, and Then Lose a Game

An even split was the best that the Chatsworth township high school baaketeers could gain since the last publication. The Bluebirds registered VV win No. 6 Friday night at Saunerrtn, walloping the home team 56-20. Sauitemln had little to offer as they failed to get clicking. Only Cleary could score more thsnJone field xoai.

For Chatsworth the scoring was rather evenly distributed. Jim Mauritzen and Tom Askew led the scorers with eleven points each; Paul Klehm 9, Jim Zorn 7, Dick Fortna and Jim Bennett 6, Fran­cis JCrohn 4 and Ronnie Wisthuff 2. Arlen Kuntz and Jack Stad- ler also played.

In the second team game Saune- min walked off an easy 41-15 tri­umph. Every member of the re­serve squad saw action aplenty. Falrbury Wins Overtime

At Falrbury Tuesday night the Bluebirds dropped a 42-38 over­time to the Tarters. The game was close throughout and the lead changed hands several times but Falrbury led at each quarter by 11-9; 22-20; 28-27 scores. The score was 37-87 at the end of the regulation time, but Falrbury scored five points to Chatsworth’s one to win 42-38.

The Bluebirds offense was slow­ed down by the absence of Tom Askew, who la nursing a case of measles. Various combinations were used to offset the boys with Ronnie Wisthuff playing most of the time. Dick Fortna picked up four personal fouls early In the game and had to be side-lined for much of the second half. Later he returned to {he game but a fifth foul sent him to the showers to txv followed soon by Paul Klehm.

Jim Mauritzen led the scorers with 12 points; J. Bennett 8; Dick Fortna 7; Jim Zorn 6; Paul Klehm 3 and Ronnie Wisthuff 2, complet­ed the scoring. Francis K^ohn and Charles Haberkom did not score. •

The Bluebird reserves salvaged the curtalnralser, with a great sec­ond half as they overcame a 16-7 haftime deficit to win 36-32. The little boys held Falrbury to three points while getting 20 for them­selves

It was a great display of courage after 6 ragged disorganized first half.

Charles Haberkom and Arlen Kuntx each ecored 12, Tom Kerber T, Franck Krohn 4. Jack Stadter 1; Donald Kane, Gerry B artlett, Bob Back, and Bill RIbordy did not mom.

WEEKLY REVIEWand Farm Outook Letter -

Department Agricultural Economics

University of Illinois January 20, 1949

L H. "Larry" Slmerl The Gloomy View

Now that you have filed income tax estimate for 1948, you know that the peak of postwar profits is past From what we see and hear, profits from farming last year were much smaller than In 1947. There are many reasons for believing that farm incomes may get another sharp trimming in 1949. Here are some of the things that point that way:

Prices of farm products are still relatively high. Therefore they can take quite a fall. Let's look back and see what prices were' in August 1939, just before World War II began in Europe Here is what we find:

Corn, per bu., 38c; Soybeans, per bu., 60c; Oats, per bu., 24c; Wheat, per bu., 57e; Hogs, per 100 lb., $5.60; Beef cattle, per 100

lib., $7.70; Milk, per 100 ]b„ $1.50; Milk cows, per head, $60.00; Butterfat, per lb., 21c; Chickens, per lb.. 13c; Turkeys, per lb., 12c; Eggs, per doz 13c.

Those prices look mighty low, don’t they? And, remember, those were the acual prices that Illinois farmers were getting in August, 1939 That was after six years of attempts to raise prices by dollar devaluation, acre­age restrictions, marketing quotas, etc.

Now you can take your pencil and write in present prices. Then you will agree that present prices are very high in relation to prewar figures. That is why we say that prices of farm prod­ucts even now are up where they could fall a long way. Here arc a few things that may make them fall:

Foreign Demand Weaker The foreign demand for our

food is weakening. European countries are making good pro­gress in restoring agricultural production. Weather conditions throughout, much of Europe have been favorable for wheat and Other winter grains. Further­more, food production in food­exporting countries other than the U. S. is increasing

storm already has begun. First, many businesses, large and small, have about completed their present expansion programs. Expenditures for new plants and equipment are expected to be much smaller in 1949 than in 1948. That means less employ­ment in those lines.

Second, consumers are not so desperate to buy new cars, houses, household equipment, furniture, etc., as they were a year or so ago. Mbjt of the G. I.’s and war workers have found places to eat and sleep and have acquiredother "necessities." Now they can wait and hope for lowerprices before making further investments.

Third, farmers are more cau­tious in buying farm and home equipment than they have been for several years. They, too, arefairly well supplied with such equipment as cars, tractors,trucks, and other machinery.

Fourth, credit has been tight­ened ’up considerably during he past year. The most important development along this line is the substantial increase in interest rates discourage would-be bor­rower-buyers. Economists gen­erally consider an increase in interest rates to be deflationary.

Altogether, this is not a bright picture for "^farmers. But don't go out and fall under the tractor. Remember, we have presented in this letter only the unfavorable in the outlook.

Chatsworth owns two very close victories over Culiom. The last be­ing a double overtime affair.

Domestic Demand Down, Toor e domestic demand for food

also is slackening. Consumers are not buying food so freely as they did a year ago. Wage rates are still going up, but increasing unemployment may cause total consumer buying power to decline. Recent figures show that un .employment is Increasing faster than at any other time since the war.

FORTY YEARS AGO January 22, 1909

The home of Mr. and Mrs. John Felt was the scene of a pretty wedding on Wednesday evening, when .their daughter, Miss Jennie M., was united in marriage with Mr. Arthur H. Pearson, son of Mrs. Hannah Pearson. Miss Ida Felt, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid, Mr. Ira Pearson was best man, and Miss Ethel Roth played the wedding march. Rev. O. E. Clapp performed the cer­emony in the presence of about sixty guests. The bride’s dress was of white China silk, trimmed with lace and ribbon and she carried a bonquuet of bride’s roses, while the bridesmaid's dress was of creme voile. The room was decorated with carnations, ferns, and smilax.

S. J. Porterfield, of Cullom, was in Chatsworth on Tuesday after­noon, and made a pleasant call at the Plaindealer office.

On Wednesday evening, shortly after dark, the school house in district, No. 255, known as Center school, came near being destroyed by fire, and had it not been for Chester Bayston, who discovered the blaze, the district would be without a school building. The stove doors had been left open and coals fell upon the floor, setting it on fire, but Mr. Bay- ston’s discovering it enabled its being extinguished with no further damage than a hole in the floor. Miss Jane Hagaman is the teacher.

THIRTY YEARS AGO January 23, 1919

Robert Henry, the eight months oki child of Mr. and Mrs. Albert G. Brammer, died Monday morn­ing, Jan. 13, 1919, after a short illness of forty-eight hours He was born April 28, 1918.

Sherman Turner received word from the War Department some time ago that his brother, George Turner, had been killed in action in France on Nov. 10. They have now received word from the de­partment that the report of his death was an error as he is ill in a hospital in France and, while it is hard to think of- him being ill it is better news than that

A chili supper in honor of the 1948 Pioneer staff was held in the high school gymnasium on Tues­day, January 25. During the sup­per Miss Mabel Marlar, sponsor of the yearbook, announced that the ’48 Pioneer had won an “All American” rating In the National Scholastic Press Association con­test.

All American is the highest ra t­ing possible for a year book to earn. All of the annuals which receive first place or excellent are again judged and a few superior ones are then chosen and given the rating, “All American.”

I t was previously announced that the '48 Pioneer won second place In the Columbia Scholastic Press Association contest for schools of under 300 enrollment. The Columbia Press Association includes .schools from the eastern and some from the middle western sections of the country while the National Scholasic Press Associa­tion includes t h e midwest and western s e c t io ns o f the country. They are the only two associations of their kind in the country.

Miss Gladys Hartman, ed.tar; Miss Janet Kuntz, associate edi­tor; and Miss Emma Jean Adam, managing editor of the winning yearbook, Miss Elizabeth Metz, present editor, and Miss Ruth Adam, associate editor, were then initiated into Quill and Scroll So­ciety, by J. ML Lattig principal, and Miss Marlar. At the conclu­sion of the ceremony they were presented with the official badge of membership. These five girls thus become charter fnembers of this international honorary society fdr high school journalists. In or­der to become members students must be of at least junior stand­ing, they must rank high scholas­tically, they must have done super­ior work in some phase of Jour­nalistic or creative endeavor, they must be recommended by the ad­viser, and they must be approved by the executive secretary.

An air of mystery prevailed be­fore the announcement of the Pi­oneer’s All American rating was made as only Miss Marlar, Eliza­beth Metz and Ruth Adam knew of the results. The atmosphere of mystery was heightened by the table decorations of gold question marks. The 1948 Pioneer colors, green and gold, were used In the other decorations and programs.
