NEWS OONTINXJXJED ON PAGE 10 Junior Kay Huge Success Letter From Our Train Wreck West of Huntley Representative In Springfield Dear Eaitor: There has been so much 'gobby- gook' in the Chicago newspapers about the Special session of the General Assembly now going on that I am compilled to write this article, so that the people of our 32nd District, at least those that are interesed, may know what really has happened. It seems that most reporters now days write editorials instead of reporting the news. And some newspapers would (ipvp ifs readers h>elieve that tho legislative has been conducting a cm us. First of all I want to remind r^v Constituents of some facts. One is that Governor Kerner when ' ampa-cnine; for office one year ago pledged himself to economize and to cut down on the ever in¬ creasing bureaucracy in State gov¬ ernment: there are now nearly 3000 more State employees than 10 montiis ago. Another fact that ri ople do not know is that nearly every Democrat memljer in the House of Representatives from Cook County has a very lucrative Job in either the Chicago or Cook County Government, which most people bellAve creates a conflict of interest aS Tar as considering Gov¬ ernmental problems fairly. If they dcm't vote rig^t they never come t)ack to the Legislatiu^. Another no' so little matter that I wish people to remember is that by ac¬ tion of the Legislature a sales and me tax was instituted mi new ma teriais used in the service indus¬ tries at the rate of 37r and the % cent tanporary sales was made permanent so that aii in all the o.- 'mate is that around 260 to 300 million dollars of more revenue per biennium than the State has ever had before should be available for this administration. When the call went out for this special session thore were fourteen LETTER CONTINUED ON PAGE 7 Credit Union Dividend Up The Board of Directors declar ed an annual dividend on savings to members on record November 30, 1961, in the amount of 3H'7r. This is an increase from 3% to 3% and is possible due to the fact that thore has been a substantial increase in the number of loans. The present loan volume is ap¬ proaching the half million mark with loans in the amount of $461,688.27 on November 1, 1961 as reported by tho Treasurer At¬ torney Raymond J. Kelley. Delwin Borhart, President of Huntley Community Credit Union announces that the annual meet¬ ing to be held January 18th, 1962, will be at the American Legion Home and the dinner will be serv¬ ed by the American Legion Aux¬ iliary. Tickets to the dinner will be limited to 125 persons. Ttie Credit Union office is open every day except Thursday. RAYMOND J KELLEY N OTIC E This week the school board an¬ nounces that there was a motion made by Adams and seconded by Frohling that tho only official school crossing on Route 47 is at Main Stret^t which isprotected by village personnel and any other person crossing at any other place is crossing so at his own risk. Twelve or thirteen cars of the North Western Chicago Railroad Freight train were derailed early last Monday morning, Nov. 13, West of Huntley. Clean up operations were hamp ered duo to the rainfall and tho fact that much of the heavy equipment had to be taken thu hilly muddy fields. Most of the cars involved in tho wreck were enmpty. However, some were carrying materials, and one which was overturned had a load of coal As near as we can assertain, the wreck was caused by either a broken or loose rail Tbe engine was derailed but re¬ mained upWgfht. Oone box car be¬ hind the engine was upright also Christmas Checks Mailed The State Bank of Huntley has informed this office that Oirist- mas Club checks will be mailed the 15th of this month They also informed us that deposits this year were vei^j handscmely in¬ creased over 1960 deposits.
