Cover illustration: The Prescott E. Bloom Building in Springfield is almost brand new and houses the Illinois Department of Public Aid. The torn photo of the building illustrates the jolt being felt by state job cuts, especially as they diminish the strength of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. See the article beginning on page 10. The illustration is by Terry Farmer/Showcase Photography of Springfield.
