WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15. 19J9 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 3—A Annual Meeting January 27 Soil, Water District To Name 2 Directors O'Brien Advises Democrats: Look Jo The Suburbs W • WASHINGTON (AP)—Master tactician Lawrence F. O'Brien is leaving the political arena for bankers' hours with this word of advice to his fellow Democrats: Look to the suburbs. That's 1 where the Democrats are. O'Brien, who guided the campaigns of three Democratic presidential candidates, resigned as national party chairman last week to become presi- i dent of a banking investment firm in New York. He gave his parting advice today in remarks prepared for the Democratic National Committee, which convened to name his successor. Sen. Fred Harris, D-Okla„ backed by Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey, was named to get the job which will entail cleaning up a campaign deficit estimated at between $9 million and $12 million and rebuilding the party, in O'Brien's words, "from the bottom up." O'Brien was a charter member of John F. Kennedy's "Irish Mafia," which ran his successful presidential campaign and provided his closest advisors in i the White House. He ran Presi- I dent Johnson's campaign in 1964 and later became postmaster general. He resigned that job in 1963 to manage the presidential campaign of Sen. Robert Kennedy. When Sen. Kennedy was assassinated after a surprising primary victory in California, O'Brien joined Humphrey's campaign, helping to steer it to near-victory. O'Brien told the committee the Democratic party must be bt'ilt "once again into a service organization." To do it, he said, new sources of support must be found. "We will not survive as a party it we just rely on the old political organizations, the old alliances, the old allegiances. My advise is: Look to the suburbs; [ that's where many of our Demo- I erats have gone. Look to the growing problems of suburban sprawl and suburban blight; that's what so many of our Democrats are concerned about." ^fte Massachusetts politician H]lS*r urged the committee to "embark upon an in-depth research project to develop a proposal for financing presidential elections with federal funds. John Kiefer, chairman of the Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation District today announced that the district is to elect two directors at the annual meeting to be held January 27th at 6:30 p.m. at the Field consolidated school. The terms of James R. Baker, Route 4, Mt. Vemon, Dodds township and Ronald! Shafer, Rt. 1, Texico, Farrington township expire. Directors of the district are elected for a two year term. Kiefer, a resident of Belle Rive is chairman of the nominating committee. Other members are Art Buesking, manager of the Mt. Vernon Federal Land Bank Association and Forrest Stewart of Texico, a farmer and director of Rend Lake Junior College. Holdover members of the Jefferson County Soil and Water Conservation board of directors are Reuben Moore, Woodlawn; Stanley Borowiak, Jr. Waltonville and John Kiefer, Belle Rive. All land owners or operators in the district are elgible to serve on the board of directors and anyone interested in serving their Soil and Water Conservation District is encouraged to contact a member of the nominating committee and make their availability known. Social Workers Shun Jobs On "Shapiro Day Transfusion Saves Cat 3LACKB0URT0N. England (AP)—Pedigree is all very well .mtil something goes wrong with th'» blue blood. Then, as usual, it is the good red blood o[ the workers that is needed to put 1'lings right. Take the case of Gigi, a superior Siamese cat which lives with the Shaw family in this rural Oxfoi'dshire village. She was dying of a rare blood disease and the fact that she was something of an aristocrat was not :n:ich help. Along came Cuddles, a home- leys stray being looked after by a cat lover, Betty Munford, who already had 40 strays in her home. Cuddles is a democrat, not the least concerned that Gigi was born on the other side of the tracks. Cuddles gave Gigi two transfusions of good red blood and saved her life. Miss Munford is now seeing if Cuddles qualifies for an award. "Other animals get awards for saving lives," she said. "But Cuddles' best reward would be for someone to give him a loving home."

Don Shea, a part - time instructor with the flying service received! an FBI bulletin which listed "Pollite" as one of Kane's aliases. He contacted the FBI which located the pair. HUMOR SHOULD KNOW A little tot in church for the first time watched the ushers pass the collection plates.
