"I, therefore, call upon the citizens, teachers, and educational authorities of every county to organize for the purpose of eliminating adult illite racy from that county; and "I call upon the members of the Farmers' Union, the Press Associa tion, the Junior Order, the Federation --i!rnflnno OiinilfO I rMiviuuo onuno i in iiininnu Kill I 111 Mil it I IK W in inimuiu TODAY i i - RAILROADS PAY UP Settle for Taxes for Year A Likely Total.
