THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1*51 LEGISLATIVE COMMISSIONS TOKEEP BUSY Lawmakers to Study Cool, City Aid, Other Issues Between Sessions. By Associated Prssi SPRINGFIELD, 111., July 6. — During the next 18 months, special commissions of the Illinois legislature will study a wide range of subjects including coal, sex offenders, plumbing,, and financial aid for cities. It will take about 110 lawmakers—better than half of the legislature's membership—to man them, and around $300,000 to fi- • nance their work. Setting up special commissions to function between regular sessions is a tradition of the general assembly. However, the number has been getting fewer in recent years. Many of the bills creating the commissions are still awaiting Governor Stevenson's signature but he is expected to okay virtually all of them. One of the major study groups authorized by the 1951 legislature is to find out if anything can be worked out to meet the ' steady clamor of cities for financial help. Ten legislators with $50,000 will tackle the problem and report recommendations to the 1953 assembly. Study Coal Industry Largest amount voted for a commission this year is $115,000 to continue investigating the possibilities of new uses for Illinois coal and coal products. Ten legislators are given $7,500 to study the problem and methods of dealing with sexually danger. ous persons. Another commission with $10,000 and 10 lawmakers is to draw up a code for regulation of plumbers. Here are the purposes of some orrier commissions: Investigate the condition of Illinois highways and the effect of heavy traffic; $25,000 and 10 legislators. Determine the source of authority and extent of influence of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary schools, an accrediting agency; $5,000 and 10 legislators. Study amendments to the state constitution with the aim of overhauling the judicial system; $5,000 and 10 members. Study all proposals for new bridges where state funds are involved, and recommend priorities for the projects;- $3,500 and six members. Crab Orchard Ares Look into methods for improving economic \ conditions in the Crab Orchard i. area of southern Illinois; $30,000 and six legislators. - * • Study operations of the Illinois Commerce Commission to determine whether there are any defects in the public utilities law; $2,500 and six legislators. Continue the study of school problems;* $18,000 and six legislators. Investigate the feasibility of coordinating and standardizing equipment used in accounting and tabulation by state agencies; $2,000 and five legislators. Study youth problems; $2,500 and 10 legislators. Continue a study of pension and annunity benefit laws affecting public employes; $15,000 and 10 legislators. PHONE CO, GUESSING GAME AT FAIR Mt. Vernon telephone operators Rose Marie Myers, center, and Loraine Koker, hostesses at the Illinois Bell exhibit at the Fair here next week, hear Manager W. P. Sapp guess exactly the number of wires in apiece of cable. (He knew anyway). Mt. Vernon State Fair visitors will get a chance to play the guessing game at the Bell exhibit, beginning Sunday. — (Pavledes Photo) U. N. ORDERS NO BOMBING OF HIGHWAY (Continued from Pagt One) ing communique, "and the front remained relatively quiet." U. N. Naval forces carried the bombardment of Wonsan, east coast port and communications center, into the 141st day. The U. S. destroyers Blue and Evans silenced Communist short batteries in a 75-minute artillery duel. Allies Start Sunday Allied emissaries will make the trip on Sunday morning. They will travel by helicopter or jeep, depending on the weather. Gen'. Kim II Sung of North Korea and Gen. Peng Teh-Huai of Chinese forces suggested the Allies travel by jeep regardless of weather—"for their more certain safety and to cut down the possibility of misunderstanding." Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, U. I N. commander, promptly replied: "My delegates will proceed by helicopter or jeep as dictated by the weather." The Communist suggestion they travel by road may have been an admission of their poor communications. Red prisoners taken in recent days on some sectors had not heard about the. armistice talks. Red radios have said poor communication was the reason General Kib and Peng didn't agree to" earlier meetings as Ridgway had suggested. The Red Generals' message Friday said '/(We undertake to a.s4 sure Jjr * T safe conduct" of the U. N.' delegation. In contrast, Ridgway flatly assured the Communist commanders their "convoy will be immune from attack, by my forces." Each delegation will consist of three officers, two interpreters and necessary attached personnel such as drivers. Ridgway's headquarters said news coverage by the Kaesong meetings will be limited to official communiques. A daily communi­ que is to be issued in the early evening (the early morning in the United States) summarizing the day's developments. Supplemental communiques will be issued if necessary. JAMES CAGNEY TO GIVE UP GANGSTER PICTURES f By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD, July 5.—(AP) — You probably never thought it wduld happen, but James Cagney is muscling out of the mob. "Yes, I'm going straight," grinned the actor, without an ounce of ! menace. He admitted that he'll probably, never do another gangster picture. • This marks the end of an era. Cagney was perhaps the screen's best known mobster. His preeminence in the field dates back to /'Public Enemy," which made him a star just 20 years ago. . v •• * * * "THE GANGSTER PICTURES were representative of an era," he •observed. '.'But that era is over now. The Kefauver hearings on television helped end it. Nowadays if you did a picture about gangsters, you'd have to show the nation-wide aspects of the rackets;" Also, today's onme pictures might reasonably show the traffic in dope and its sale to teen-agers, a trend which has alarmed the nation. However, the industry's code of censorship forbids any mention of dope. Cagney is making the transition from gangsterism with a newspaper role in "Come Fill The Cup." I was wary of it, judging from the title and from Hollywood's usual portrayal of newspapermen. (Witness the recent epic starring Kirk Douglas as an all-time heel). * * * BUT CAGNEY ASSURED ME that this reporter is different. He has sworn off. In fact, he is a member' of alcoholics anonymous. See—there is hope for our profession yet. For A Happier Tomorrow ... INSURE WITH SUNWAY TODAY All Types of Insurance Coverage.

Illinois Bell Exhibit at Fair To Begin Sunday How nitrogen gas goes to high pressure work for the telephone company and your voice streaks under the city streets are among the telephone demonstrations scheduled for the Mt. Vernon State Fair opening Sunday (July 8). Located in the blue tent opposite the main grandstand entrance, the telephone exhibits are scheduled from 1:00 to 10:30 p. m., according to W. P. Sapp, manager of the Illi nois Bell. Pretty Bell belles will explain how nitrogen gas keeps moisture from entering cables as well as notifying repairmen when cable damages occur, Sapp said. A Mt. Vernon cable splicer will demonstrate the art of splicing wires in telephone cable, bringing working order out of the mass of wires in telephone cable. Fair visitors will be able to tune in on a recorded message which describes how the voice makes its quick trip over the wires to the called party. The various steps in the call's progress will be made visible .through light pattern's at the exhibit. An opportunity to test their shooting eye will also be offered fairgoers at the telephone shooting gallery. The "correct answer eye" keeps' score for the shooter. For the calling convenience of all Fair visitors, public telephone booths have been installed at the exhibit. Pop Hits on 45's Opus No. I: Boogia Wooiia, Temy Dorsey Orch.
