Earl W. Monk, president and chief operating officer of ATE, said he believes Donoghue underestimated gains from private operation when Donoghue predicted a 4-6 revenue increase if city garages are leased. Stephen Kipp of APCOA said he does not agree with Donoghue that the 4-6 savings would accrue solely because private operators would pay their employees less than the city pays its operators. THERE IS a "difference in degree" between that percentage and what private operators could actually achieve through marketing and efficient use of facilities, he said. "I think there's some money for the city of Cincinnati to (realize) from privatization," Kipp said. James Kassouf of Kassouf Industries said he was interested not only in leasing city garages, but buying them if the city was interested. Committee members indicated no interest in that idea, and after Sterne's motion to drop all talk of leasing failed, the consultant's report on parking garages was put on the Wednesday council agenda for possible vote. BY PAUL FURIGA Enquirer Reporter A parking consultant to the city of Cincinnati has again advised city council against leasing Its downtown parking garages, but a battle on the issue seems likely at council's regular Wednesday session. Councilman J. Kenneth Black-well, chief proponent of leasing city garages, was marshaling forces Monday afternoon following a meeting of council's Finance Committee where parking consultant J.L. Donoghue and operators of private parking garages testified. Donoghue, president of Chicago-based Ralph Burke and Associates, backed up his recent $22,500 study of city parking garages by saying the system Is effective and well-run. He disputed claims by the private operators that they could better market and more efficiently operate the garages. "The reason you are in the (parking) business," he told committee members, "is to do things the private sector cannot do." As examples, Donoghue cited the city's basement garage under the Westin Hotel on Fountain Square, which he said cost far more to build than private operators are willing to pay, and the Town Center garage next to Music Hall, which he said loses too much money te interest private operators. "KEEP DOING the things you're doing," Donoghue told council members. "You're doing a good job." That was just what committee chairwoman Bobbie Sterne and Councilman David S. Mann wanted to hear. Sterne called for the committee to recommend that leasing of garages be abandoned altogether, a motion which did not carry past Blackwell and Councilman Peter J. Strauss. Mann said he was satisfied that the report shows the city is managing its garage system well. "This is not a rational way to go," he said of leasing. But private operators and Blackwell disputed that viewpoint in testimony which lasted well over an hour.

ELKINS Enquirer Reporter and WIRE REPORTS Cincinnati's St. Xavier High School is one of 60 schools in the country to be selected in a government-sponsored search for high schools that exemplify the best features of American private education. The Council on American Private Education, a private education group, chose the 60 from among 358 schools that competed for the honors in the Exemplary Private School Recognition Project, financed by a $370,000 grant from the Department of Education. St. Xavier, run by Jesuits, was the only Ohio winner and was one of 33 Roman Catholic high school winners. St. Xavier High School of Louisville, operated by the Xavlerian Brothers, was the only Kentucky school chosen. Indiana's sole winner was Culver Academy. THE REV. Paul Borgmann SJ, president of Cincinnati St. Xavier, said he believed the school was chosen on the basis of how well it follows the Jesuit philosophy of faith and justice and on its community service programs. He said more than 50 of the students are involved in working with retarded children. Another program is to have eight capable boys from poor families live on campus year-round while taking academic studies toward a college education. Of Its graduating students, 10 are National Merit Scholars and 37 received scholarships from colleges and universities. Michael Trainor is principal of the high school. Other winners Included Phillips Exeter Academy and other prominent New England prep schools; an alternative school for dropouts in Ho-lyoke, Mass.; a Christian school for American Indians in Rehoboth, N.M.; an Interlochen, Mich., school for children with musical talent; a Quaker school in Durham, N.C., and a Lutheran school in St. Louis that offers special education for children with disabilities. ROBERT L. Smith, executive director of the council, told a news conference, "These 60 exemplary schools represent a national profile of private schools."

A native of Galveston, Texas, who had been reared in New Orleans, Mrs. Turpeau was always active in the community where her husband was a pastor. While in Baltimore in 1914, she was an active member of the women's suffrage movement and of the women's temperance league. The couple arrived in Cincinnati in 1927.

Her church, Mount Zion United Methodist Church, Walnut Hills, honored her as its "sweetheart" and she was an honorary member of Zeta Phi Beta sorority. She was proud of how well her children turned out. "We managed to land all of the children over Fool's Hill," she told a reporter. "They all go over there, you know, between 16 and 18." She said she always took good care of herself and "never smoked or never drank anything stronger than tea." "I DONT have any aches and pains, but still age is catching up with me," she said at age 87. "You have to find time to dedicate yourself to others.
