BOARD OF REVIEW
Dismisses Complaint of Harry
M. McCaskrin Relative to
ALTER OTHER SCHEDULES?

to 50 Per Cent on Personal
The Rock Island county board of re
view has completed its work of equal
izing the assessments for this year.
The complaint of Harry M. McCaskrin
against the Modern Woodmen of
America urging that the reserve" fuad

against William Jackson, the board
found an error in the penalty which
th assessor, John V. Moeller, lm-'
posed. When Mr. Jackson did not
sign his schedule, the officer added 100
per cent to his personal property
when the same should have been-bu
50 per cent. The assessment of $3,000
was advanced to $6,000 but under the
rulings of the board, this sum was re
duced to $4,500. An assessment of
$1,500 was added against Mr. Jackson,
as conservator of the estate of Carrie
Barth, about which Mr. McCaskrin
had entered complaint. On the peti
tion of Mr. McCaskrin relative to F.
K. Rhoads, the board increased the as

As the football season advances,
the local high school eleven continues
to improve and from the practice held
las; evening at the Reservoir field, 4
winn;ng team is predicted. Ali of the
Rock Island players are showing up
5n even better form than last year
and a number of promising new men
strengthen the hopes of Coach Cor
neal for a team Uiat will duplicate
the eleven of 1911.
Although inferior in weight to the
team of two years ago, the equad of
this year is speedier. At present
Coach Cornea Is prospecting to find
a quarterback who can fill the popi
tion of Klpp, who will probably, in
case a quarter is foun.i, be shifted to
right half back. With Whisler play
ing, the other half, a backfleld both
speedy and game will be the result.
Criswell, substitut3 full back and
lineman of last year, is showing up In .
much better form and will proba
bly secure a berth on the team, crark,
also a sub last year, has been playing
classy ball and is making some of the
regulars hustle for their positions..
Four new men have been discover
ed by Coach Corneal. Bernard
Bleuer, a 216-pounder from Milan has
reported for practice, and judginz
from his work, will probaly turn out .
to be one of the big finds of the sea
son. George Henry, formerly of the
St. Ambrose college, Davenport, sec

squad, and is making a good showing.

ing fast ball. Reeves, the speedy
quarterback, and Friestat, an .end,
show promise of making good -Orst
team material. At present the future
cf the team is all conjecture. bijt from
indications, the eleven will be a
