West said the woman had been lying on a studio couch near the television set. She may have rolled onto the floor in an effort to get air when the room began to fill with, fumes and gas from the fire, the coroner said. • Death apparently was from suffocation, he said. Miss Szczeblewski lived with her widowed mother, Mrs. Celia Szczeblewski. Mrs. Szczeblewski had gone to the barn to feed the livestock around 8 a.m. When she looked toward the home, the coroner said, she saw rubber burning off the electrical wires leading into the house. Explosion She ran to the house and opened the door. Tne coroner said the fresh air mixing vrith the fumes in the bouse caused an explosion. Mrs. Szczeblewski was not injured. The Tamaroa fire department was called about 8:20 a.m., the coroner said. West also is Tarn- aroa's firii chief. The fire truck drove to within -200 yards ol the house, which is on an unimproved road, when it got stuck in mud. Three tractors pulled it out and dragged it to. toe bouse, which was already destroyed, West said. An overloaded or faulty electrical circuit may have caused . the fire, according to West. He and deputy state Fire Marshal Al Phillips are conduct ing an investigation. An inquest is pending. Miss Szczeblewski was born in Tamaroa on Dec. 18, 1938 . the daughter of Leonard a n < Celia'Szczeblewski. She was a member of Im maculate Conception Catholic Church in Tfmaroa.

Franklin County Industrial Park, West Frankfort, is expected to cost $1,030,000 for the 142.5-acre developed site, SII >ackers were told. The federal Economic Development Administration has accepted the first part of , a grant application to help pro- ^lUUIJU W!11H£ 1UI liquid a u U utilities, and sewers. Half of the property is committed already, according to rlarry Weeks, executive secretary of the Chamber of C o ra- ni isrce. The park was developed by ;he Carbondale Industrial Corp, with nearly $300,000 in private loans, Weeks said. Mt. Vcrnon's park is being More Study Scheduled Marion Plan Commission Discusses Possible Goals Members of the Marion Plat- ning Commission outlined possible goals for Marion at a meet- ng Monday. The suggestions were: to develop a central business district, a city-county complex adjacent to the central business district, and apartment dwellings if necessary; to encourage off-street mrking in and adjacent to the central busihess district; to develop industrial areas; to coordinate major thoroughfares and a and use pattern; to direct fu- :ure residential growth into areas that will form stable homogeneous neighborhoods; to update zoning; to work with park and school boards for development Jn each area; to update subdivision regulations, and to preserve low lands. The goals will be discussed further at future meetings of the commission. Franklyn Moreno, Greater Egypt Regional Planning Commission, said short range planning should include a revision of street names and development of a directional system based on information supplied by a recently completed base map. In Johnston City Bids Sought On Fire Truck After Insurance Rate Hike The City Council of Johnston or are under way. They includ- City voted Monday to advertise 'or bids on a new fire truck. Specifications include a 750- gallon per minute pumper, an iOO-gallon booster tank and a 477 cubic inch motor. Bids will be accepted on the fire apparatus both with and without a chassis. The deadline for submitting rids will be 7 p.m. March. 14. They will be opened at t h e council meeting that night. The council had been notified that the city had dropped from eighth to ninth class in fire protection, according to the Illinois Inspection Rating Bureau. The drop in rating will cause yearly insurance rates to increase by about $8 for $8,000 homes, $9 for $10,000 homes and $10 for $12,000 homes. It has been estimated businesses will pay about $600 more per year. Needed For Rating A new fire truck is among the improvements necessary for the city to return to the class eight rating. Representatives from two fire truck manufacturers have indicated it would take seven to eight months to build the truck according to city specifications. Fire Chief Doyle Ray s'a 1 d other improvements cited by the rating bureau have been made ed repair of 10 old hydrants; periodic hydrant checks;; keeping the water tank 80 per cent full at all times; the existence of 10 regular volunteer firemen who can be summoned during the day; and regular fire drills for volunteer and fulltimc firemen. In other business, the counci voted to increase the monthlj 'ee for cleaning privies from one dollar to $1.50. The Increase was made afte 1 Prank Wayne Williams of Johns ;on City, who performs the serv ice, requested he be paid $1.7, per month per unit. Williams had previously char^ ed $1.25 per unit with th? 2 cents being provided by the city The city will still pay the 25 cent difference between Wil liams' fee and the charge to th< residents. It is estimated ther are about 40 customers for th service. The state Div. of Highway notified the city that the recon struction of Broadway avenu from Rt. 37 to Herrin street wa complete and must now be main tained by the city. Action on a building perm! for John Houghlan to build i 23-bed shelter care home wa delayed until further informa tion on the project can be oh cveloped on 144 acres leased or $1 a year from the airport uthority, Earl Jamison report- d. Shell buildings are being con- tructcd, Jamison said, because with shell type buildings you re almost certain to get in- lustry." The developerj Jefferson lounty Industrial Development Jorp., is seeking both federal grants and loans to provide fi- lancial backing. Marion is at the beginning of ndustrial p ark development, ,ewis Ncilsen reported. The ity is seeking an adequate open pace for future development. Work-Release Program G. V. Richardson, warden of he U.S. Penitentiary at Marion, jutlined the new federal work- release program. The new law, Richardson ex- ilalned, allows prisonrs to tra- pel home unescorted for family unerals, job interviews or oth- r compelling personal reasons. One former inmate at Marion obtained a job in a bakery brough an unescorted job in- ervtew, he said. The second part of the pro. gram permits release of a man during working hours to work in a local business or to obtain training, Richardson said, Only minimum custody prisoners without sexual offense rec ords may participate in t h e program, Richardson said. "With our type of population at Marion — a maximum secur prison — we don't expect t< jave too many prisoners par .icipating. Other prisons will We only have one man in the program right now." "This is the most dramatic n-eakthrough in correction meth ods in my career," Richardson said. Tduritm Promotion Illinois' 1966-67 tourism pro motion campaign was outlined Dave Richmond of the statp Dept. of Business and Economic Development office in Herrin. Richmond said increasing at tendance at state parks and fed eral areas in Southern Illinois last year probably was attributable in part to the 1964-65 promotion campaign. "Southern Illinois did a tre mendous job in the first bien nium in advertising and promot ing its region," Richmond said. This year, lor every $1 th local region raises for tourism promotion, the state will pro vide $1.50, Richmond explained. The maximum figure for th southern 17 counties will be $56 750, of which local sources mus raise $22,717, he said. "We are blessed with seen! areas, lakes, friendly people an historical areas," Richmon said; New Jobs Tourism helps directly wit the dollars tourists leave behim but it can also lead to new job and new demands for impro ed commercial facilities, he said. W. A. Luecke, new president of SII, confined his "state of the union" address to asking mem. hers present to spread the truth about SII and its work in their communities. Luecke is manager of the southern division of Central Illinois Public Service Co. Johnston City Removal Of Houses Asked tained.

A speeding ticket issued by State Trooper Russell Birkner on Jan. 1, 1965, to Michael Grabowski was dismissed by Magistrate James F. Wheatley of Chester. The ticket alleged that Grabowski, a former Perry County judge, was driving 54 miles an hour in a 40-mile zone on Illinois Rt. 127 in Pinckneyville. Wheatley ruled that a bilJ of particulars on a complaint drawn up by State's Atty. Robert Gandy did not cite the specific authority by which the speeding zone was established. Gandy has not decided whether to appeal the decision, Gandy said today he felt "the wording of the statute was suf- icient to charge the person with the offense committed." ,He said a "change in statutory lan- ;uage" may be needed.
