4-C Robert Francis Kennedy— THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLTNOIS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1968 "Some men see things as they ar* Had say—why? I dream of things that never were and say —why not?" These words were spoken by a man dedicated to his country and fellow men. Now we are faced with the task of finding an answer to that question—alone. History can only speculate as to Robert Kennedy's greatness. However, it can be said that, in the strictest tradition of greatness, he never turned from a challenge to his country or mankind. Presidential Ait Medals has just released the firsr of their memorial medals commomorat- ing the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, it is a companion piece to Will Notify Drivers SPRINGFIELD. III. —Illinois drivers who will be required to take the drivers license examination as the re-examination program goes into effect January 1 will be notified of mat fact when their renewal notices ae sent to them, Sec re tary of State Paul Powell said tod a .v. Only one- ninth of the licensee", drivers _ will be called for reexamination each year, as the new requirement of the law is that all drivers be re- exami- naed once every nine years, Mr. Powell said. Those drivers who receive renewal notices without any instructions to take the examination may simply submit their applications as they have done in the past and their licenses will be renewed, he said. Sometime within the next nine years, however, every licensed driver will receive instructions to report for an examination, Secretary Powell pointed out. The first drivers to be called for examination will be those with records of previous revocations or suspensions of their licenses and convictions for traffic law violations, Mr. Powell said. Since those drivers are in the minority, he estimated they would all be examined in three or four years. The examination will include the vision test, road sign recognition test, written test on traffic laws and, in some cases, the driving test, Secretary Powell said. The decision to require the driving test will be based- on the driver's record, plus other factors which may come to the examiner's attention in the course of giving the other tests. The new program will increase the driver examining workload by about 750,000 a year, or roughly 3,000 a day, Mr. Powell said, drivers has long been advocated 1 by traffic safely experts, and is now a part of the Federal government's requirement for states to qualify for highway construction funds, S e ere tary Powell said. Failure to comply would result in the loss of 10 per cent of the Federal funds.

The obverse of the new Robert Kennedy medal features Ihc full- face portrait for which Menconi is noted and the dates of Kennedy's birth and death—19251968.

The seals are separated from his most famous quotation by a broken laurel (symbolic of eternity*, indicating a life's work left unfinished by his untimely and tragic death.
