In tbe second game they played, they beat War- ren 19-0. It looks as if coach Kienle might have a good team this year. In the game with War- ren Jim Clarlc made the first touch- down by a ten yard plunge off tackle. A few minutes later Jerry Youmans, quarterback, tossed a pass to Jim Murphy in the end zone. Bob Pettinger made the extra point on an end run. Before the second quarter ended, Aquin went to Warren's two-yard line.

The Wildcats 'tossed 6 and completed none while the St. Ed- ward air attack gave four com- pletions in 12 attempts for a total of 89 yards gain. It looks as if Joliet speed is too much for the Cadets. Joliet who can literally fly, raced their way to a 32-0 victory over Marmion Military academy on the cadet field. Marmion compiled 13 first downs to eight for the Steelmen holding a 10-6 margin in the ones scored by rushing, but the brilliant bursts Joliet made it a double sweep by winning the opener 20-0 f,'om Marmion sophomores-.

Barrett, custodian of state build- ings, said today. You know how spectators will stand around watching workmen dig an excavation for a new building, and then brightly ask, "Digging a hole?" Well, the carpenters are build- ing some bookshelves in the tunnel between the Archives and Centennial buildings to help the Illinois State Library shelve its overflow of books.

Senator John Foster Dulles, Republican fore that Senate seat. i and Mrs. J. Grant Harrington are On the Federal-aid-to-education co-chairmen for the evening. Re- INSURANCE EXCLUSIVELY ARTHUR G. FRANZ, Pres. JAMES J. RICHARDS, Sec'y. FREEPORT, IlL PHONE MAIN 73 FOR FILTERED DRY CLEANING issue, Mr. Lehman said that he favored it as sorely needed, but was opposed to the Barden Bill. In acceptance of his nomination, Mr. Lehman said he would have supported the Senate's companion measure, the Thomas Bill, which would have provided $300,000,000 annually for Federal aid to educa- tion, but left the inclusion of pa- rochial schools up to the states. Catholic leaders oppose both the Thomas and the Barden Bills. Ex-Governor Lehman's opponent in the election, Senator Dulles, opposed any aid to education for the reason that any such aid would mean Federal control of education. Senator Dulles said. "AS to education, ask yourselves whether you really wish to risk having the future congresses con- trol education. Should they be per- mitted to plan the thinking of our youth ?" .. Mayor O'Dwyer, on the otner hand, came out unequivocally for Federal aid to paroshial schools, denouncing the Borden Bill as one that would discriminate against 400,000 school children. None of them entirely expressed the view of Catholic leaders: oppo- sition to aid for wealthy states and a guarantee of auxiliary welfare services for parochial school chid- dren.
