Hei needs every bit of encouragement he can get. and the assurance that the board will stand back of him means much. Anyone who knows the game knows thai a clean up will entail die spending of some money. The e "ducks" are not cowing out into the open to defy the law, and it's i u ho) - job to sprinkle salt on their tails. And no one, even the county, however much the clean Up may cost, will be as much possible money behind at the end 01 Kelly's term as he will. A g Id mine is a mere hole in the ground when compared with the "t tiching" KssilHlities of this element as a source of wealth. There was never a time when a grafting state's attorhey had a finer opening, and the mere fact thai the present state's attomev is "cm his toes" for this kind i a job i- the besl assurance that he is on the square.

Starvation is no1 staring the people oi the I nited States in the face, (Vs seems to he lamentably true in some of the devastated states of Kurope'and in stricken China. Even though financial hardships may be the portion of nian here, there is a certainty that there will be sufficient bread-stuff in the country to insure a complete banish .ment of. all fear of the wolf-al the-door, for there is an unprece dented (uantity of unmarketed cereal- in the country, . government report i I the reserves oi wheat, corn, oats and barlev on band March l si has jusl been made public, from which it is learned that the farm reserves of these cereals were never greater than at the present time, This report shows that there were in re serve X3U the t'irst of the presenl month 2,539,400,000 bushels of these (our gniins. an excess ol 928,000,000 bushels over a year ago. I he holdings of corn alone wen- 1,572,397,000 bushels, or nearly one half of the total crop of 1920. During the last three years the government control of wheat was an inducement for the farmers to sell more readily than they have been 'willing to do since the last harvest, which undoubtedly, is the reason for the largely increased reserve on hand at the presenl time. In Illinois the reserve holdings of corn aggregates 141,201,000 bushels as against 1 1 1,720,000 bushels in 1920 and 123,966,000 in OHO. Likewise the holdings in the state of wheat, oats and barley On March 1st were largel) iii excess of those of 1920. The condilii 11s existing in Illitv is seem hul a fair illustration of the conditions in other states where these grains are extensively grown for the markets. M.ssionary Society Meets.

BOXING BILL UP TO AMERICAN LEGION Chicago. March n -Advices from Springfield thai the state legislature will receive With favor a boxing bill i sponsored by the American Legion gives evidence that service men are to play a big part in legalising the glove sport In Illinois. In the hands of the license and miscellany com mittee there already are seteial bills Introduced by members of the house and senate, but it is evident no def inite action will be taken until the American Legion 'Conies to hat" with a measure indicating Its preferences The American Legion, of winch Col onel John V. Cllnntn, la the head, has not drafted a bill because the Illinois commander is adhering stric tly to the stand taken several weeks aeo that the Legion seeks harmony with other organizations and desires to co-oner-ate in order that an agreed measure I may be perfected and offered for pas- ' sage. That sentiment is swinging toward fifteen round bouts to decisions is evi dent by conversation with Colonel Cllnntn.
