TO PROJECTS THIS
YEAR; FILED TODAY
Objections to the Fifty-third
street improvement project were
filed in city court today on behalf
of L. A. Paradise and W. L Taze.
This is the first objection to any
paving project undertaken this
year. The project provides for
paving on Fifty-third street be
tween Fifth and Seventh avenues
and on Sixth avenue from Fifty-
third street to the eaat line of
Sherman Heights addition.
The petition filed in court today
states that the assessment rolls
omit property which is benefited,
that the cost is unjustly apportion

Paradise are assessed more than

TICKETS FILED IN
MOLINE TO DATE
Republicans who were nominated
for Moline township offices Wed
nesday evening apparently will not
have even formal opposition at the
election on April 6. Monday is the
last day for filing tickets with the
town clerk, Olof Nelson. Mr. Nel
son stated today J.hat only Republi
cans have filed so far and that it
appears as though that statement
will continue to hold good next
It has been customary in former
years for leaders of the Democrstiu
party in Moline township to go
through the formality of a town
caucus prior to the spring election.
It is probably that the custom will
be ignored this year. Many of the
leading Democrats of the? town were
questioned yesterday afternoon. All
had the same answer. There's
nothing doing this year. Nor will
the Socialist or People's parties,
which have not been so regular in
the last few years, file tickets bo
fore next Tuesday.
TO COLLECT ALL
If there are any delinquents in
personal taxes in Mercer county
they had better hurry their money
to the county treasurer, according
to word from the state tax com
missioner. County Treasurer C. A.
Friese returned Wednesday from
Springfield, where he had gone to
confer with the members of the
state tax commission. He was or
dered to collect all personal taxes.
March 10 was the final day for the
collection of these tares, but a few
days' grace has been allowed and
delinquents "may take advantage or
find the sheriff actin'g as collector.

HE GETS BLAMED FOR EVERYTHING
TODAY IN ALEOO
6. E. Piatt Says H amber ta Qnallfy
W01 Not Sapalaat Beeigma.
tkms Hex! Tear.
With the present shortage of In
structors for the schools of Mercer
county the question of aa adequate
number of teachers for nest year
has arisen. It is known that sev
eral of the educators are giving up
their position for more lucrative
work. Only lt are taking exami
nation tor certificates to teach.
Upon investigation it was found
that neftrly 10 per cent of the
teachers of Mercer county have not
fully qualified A Instructors but
the school boards have been com
pelled to employ tress instructors
school. There is at present one
school in the county closed be
cause of the inability to secure a
teacher. Mr. Piatt stated that it
may be possible that next year
more schools would be closed.
As word of the tending resigna
tion of several Instructors has been
received, lt is seen why school
teachers give up their positions. In
a table compiled by the teachers'
association, lt is showm- that in
structors in commercial lines of
the school, receiving 12,400 a year
have left their position and taken
work in accounting, at a salary of
$5,00 a year. Home economic in
structors left their position for re
search work at a salary of $3,200.00
a year aa against the $1,800 they
received in school. General edu
cator left a $2,500 a year position
to join the government workers for
$3,000 a year. Many Instances or
great increases prove the utility of
trying to secure competent teachers
at the present scale oi pay.
Although no request tor addi
tional pay has been made by Mercer
county teachers, it is thought tnat
such a step may be taken by the
next school year. The decision of
the Mercer county school board on
such a question would necessarily
be long considered.
IN MUSICAL FLAY
TONIGHT AT HALL
After weeks or preparation, the
students of the Aledo high school,
composing the Boys' and Girls' Glee
clubs, will appear in the initial
showing of "The Gypsy Rover." a
musical comedy of high class.
Good singers, the cast Is full of
them. The gypsy dialect employed
by the students in their songs is
sure to please the audience. Gay
ly dressed actors and actresses, all
tend to go for a well spent evening.
During their reheasals the students
have shown an aptness far beyond
their years, and those in charge of
their training express great satis
faction at their rendition of the
songs. The operatta will be staged
tonight and tomorrow night at the
city hall auditorium.
FROM A. B. C. MEET
TIRED BUT HAPPY
Ten Aledo bowlers returned from"
Peoria last night, where they had
been taking part in the American
Bowling congress, playing in that
city now. Then men reported the
best national tournament ever wit
nessed by Aledo representative.
The reception received in Peoria
won the admiration of the visitors.
T.Mtmont at the hands of the city
administration was such as to dnf
admiration of all who visited Peo
ria during this meet. Aledo is by.
no means the largest town in the j
United States but it is one of the j
few of her size who sent 10 men to i
the great bowling contest Two 5
man teams from a city of th popu-1
lation of Aledo does great credit to j
the community. Followers of the!
sport' here are to be commended I
for their foresight in entering the
number from this city, who took
part in the contest. Although no
records were broken by the Aledo
ans scores made by the aggregation
are far from being the lowest in
the tournament Larger teams with
a wider reputation fell below
Aledo's mark in various events.
According to members of the team
the gallerys were confident of aa
individual record when Macy Park,
man led in his first game with a
score of 236. nearly touching the
record for a single game.
