WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 1952 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Upper Alton Mertlcal iniMMf, o* 5308 Shof« man street 1* fWving sorttctvhat of n ptizssle to physician* at Alton Memorial .hospital. To all purposes and intents he aHould be suffering from the following symptoms: loss of appetite, Hstlessnesa, loss of weight, find yellow coloring Of the sfcln and eyes. has none of these. Ho Is regularly employed at Standard Oil Co., eats well, Is highly active, retains his formal weight, and his skin and eyes have normal coloring. A few Weeks ago Galliher said he donated a pint of blood to the American Red Cross. Several days children. They went ere*« country by back fold* frtfrn their home, 2465 Settllnftty read. Approaching U. 8. 87 over ft rough, oiled road they struck a particular bad bump, Smith heard a rattle as if something had dropped off the car, but did not Stop to see what It was. He drove on another mite and a quarter, then made a traffic stop on the highway. He waited there with motor idling for several moments. Then before he could go on, the motor died, and wouldn't start again. Smith got out to examine the car. He finally looked where the gasoline tank had been. It wasn't later he received a the organization's St, report from Louis office there! He's driven more than a mile stating that his blood contained a substance which should be causing him distress. He was advised to see his physician. Mildly surprised, the healthy Galliher entered the hospital last week and after two days of exhaustive tests was Informed that he was suffering from an unusual blood condition. The physicians could not account for the lack of symptoms. Tuesday, Galliher reentered the hospital for more tests. Again the condition was confirmed. Physicians, he said, told him the ailment apparently was arrested. Galliher was back at work today and har 'dismissed the whole business from his mind. "I'm thankful though that I sent that pint of blood to the Red Cross," he said. "It was through their work that the condition was discovered and if I develop the symptoms the doctors now will ktlovv what to do to correct it." Who Knows the Story? Since the Memorial Day ceremonies, held at Upper Alton cemetery, several curious persons have been asked about the flag that hung over the cemetery entrance. ]l: has 45 stars which indicates that it was made back at the turn of I he century before the last three states entered the Union. Miss Florence Johnson, secretary of the cemetery's board of trustees, said if the flag has any historical significance, other than the usual, no record of it can be found. She said no one now employed at the cemetery can account for the flag and the 45 stars. If the flag was bought as new by the cemetery board then it must have been purchased between 1896 and 1907. On the latter date Oklahoma entered the Union making it 46 states on the flag. Utah entered in 1896. Whatever the story behind the cemetery flag it is decidedly a relic. Only one other 45-star flag is known of in Alton and that one is displayed on every holiday and during World War I was paraded before every Alton contingent leaving for service. Out of Gas the Hard Way Delbert Smith's 1941 model car —just purchased—may be old, but he has encouraging news about that gasoline mileage. TheTother'day he was out for a drive with Mrs. ; Smith and the on the gas that was in the fuel line and the carbureter. Visit* Daughter Mrs. J.

Those wishing transportation are asked to meet at the church following Sunday morning services. A spokesman for the class also asked that everyone bring his own table service. A "Seasick" Garbage Truck This garbage truck bets "seasick." Residents of the 1800 block of Seminary have been annoyed by it lately. They can't help it, they point out, that Seminary street has a number of dips in it—which would give a speeding vehicle much the motion of a rolling ship. It's been that way for years. "But one garage truck in particular seems highly affected by the "motion." It conies rolling down the south hill into the "1800" dip. Then the driver can be heard to step on the gas to gather speed for the next upgrade. Hitting the bottom of the dip and then the upgrade "does it," to the truck. It disgorges tin cans and garbage—wrapped and unwrapped —all over the pavement at that point. Residents of the neighborhood have reported the matter to City Sanitary Inspector Kphle, having determined that the truck belongs to a garbage hauler who lives out the Seminary road and who hauls his garbage out there for dumping. They've suggested that perhaps Kohle could administer some anti- gseasickness pills to the truck—in the form of a required cover for the hauling bed. Rev. Miller's Message The message of Vaster Rev.
