AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CITIZENS OF MT. VERNON Hello friends, my name is Jnck Sullivan, I am a candidate for mayor for the city of Mt. Vernon. Let's talk horse sense for the next few minutes. I won't spend a lot of time introducing myself because nearly everyone knows me, if you don't then ask your next door neighbor, they do. Another thing: I won't tell you what I am going to do If I am elected your mayor because a mayor can't do anything by himself. It takes three votes to get: a motion passed in our city council. I will tell you some of the things I will TRY to do If there are two more councilmen who agree with me and have the interest of the Mt. Vernon citizens at heart. Even though I am the owner of JACK'S HOME CLEANING SERVICE my employees will tell you that I work just as hard as they do, I know what It is to work hard as much as fifteen to eighteen hours a day. Therefore I believe it is time to have a working man as your mayor and not another white collar worker. One who understands the problems of the working man or woman and WILLING to help solve them. In my business I have been fortunate enough to know people who live on both sides of the railroad tracks and my office would be open TO ALL THE PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF RACE, SOCIAL POSITION OR THE SIZE OF THEIR POCKET BOOK. My main goal will be to stop TEMPORARILY of spending money on Mt. Vernon to make it beautiful, but instead make it a safer place to live. Some of our irresponsible youths and adults too, are making drag strips out of our city streets. Crossing Tenth street Is like playing Russian Roulette lately. Also East Broadway, 34th street and many others. Vandalism has gotten so bad a person doesn't know if their home will be intact if they leave it for any length of time. Burglary has reached an all time high in Mt. Vernon. I will try to put in effect what will be known as OPERATION SLOWDOWN. The Rend Lake Five Watters OB Club which has nearly sixty members have pledged their support to help patrol the streets and the city would only have to furnish gasoline for their mobile units. PLEASE DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND ME, I AM NOT CONDEMNING THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. Our City only has three police cars to cover the entire dry and any sensible person will admit that they can not be everywhere at once. Under my plan we would have from twenty to forty extra patrol cars, the cost would be less than the salary of two more policemen. These people will be given badges, not for the purpose of making an arrest but have the authority to stop cars and give them a warning ticket if necessary. When a person receives two warning tickets they will be facing charges. I will also ask the Judge to PROSECUTE NOT PROBATE. These speeders and vandals are a menace to the city, they also give ALL teenagers a bad name, which is far from the truth. I agree that the youth of Mt. Vernon needs an outlet for recreation. They need a legal drag strip and I believe I could get it for them in the near future without costing one red cent. Some of these fast drivers don't, even slow down in school speed scones. Are we going to let some child get killed before we put a stop to it? Now lets talk about progress of the city, Common sense will tell you that with the coming of Rend Lake, the college and super hi-ways, Mt. Vernon will grow no matter who is mayor, I think a good man is needed to head it in the right direction. All of these will attract new industries which is much needed here. If I am your mayor, (and I want to be), I will ask of any new industry wanting to locate here that they consider first in hiring people who maintain their home here but. have to work out of town to earn a living. Now about the city manager. I think it is an insult to the people of Mt. Vernon to hire someone from another city. We are known as THE KING CITY and a king has only the best, so has Mt. Vernon. We have the finest of Doctors, Lawyers, Electricians, Plumbers, Architects, Carpenters and skills of every trade. Also the best basketball teams in the state. Yet we don't have a man smart enough to run our city. I have been told that they always pick someone from out of town because he would remain neutral In all business deals. This is still a bigger insult. DO they mean that not one honest person is left in Mt. Vernon? I was born in this wonderful city and have spent my entire life here with the exception of my high school days in Shawneetown and three years in the Eleventh Infantry Band of the United States Army. Mt. Vernon is part of my life and I will never do anything to dishonor it. I am alone in this campaign, I am not affiliated with any councilman, political machines, nor do I have any backers (I would welcome some backing providing there are no strings attached). Please study this ad carefully because they cost a lot of money and I won't, print them as often as my fellow candidates probably will. If you agree that a-good safety program and civil defense are needed in Mt. Vernon then be sure and vote for... JACK SUtLIVAN CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR Primary Election February 25, 1969 (Pd. Pol. Adv.)

Death Ends 1 College Revolt; Others Still On By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tlie death of its president brought peace to racially troubled Swarthmore College today and officials of the University of Minnesota restored order in an administration building damaged by students in a 24-hour sit-in. Still in turmoil, however, were San Francisco State College, where bombs came into play, and Brandeis University, where the campus communications center remained in the hands of 65 Negroes for the 10th day. Dr. Courtney Craig Smith, 52 died of a heart attack in his office at Swarthmore Thursday, a day after naming a faculty co*»- mittee to deal wilh Negro student demands for special racial privileges. Because of his death 40 members of the Afro-American Student Society ended a one-week sitdown in the college admissions office and called a moratorium on discussions. They said they had not given up their demands. President Malcolm C. Moos of the University of Minnesota said members of the Afro-American Action Committee and Students for a Democratic Society had caused $11,000 damage to furniture and records in an administration building which they had occupied Tuesday night and Wednesday. Moos appointed a fact-finding committee to determine responsibility for the damage as e first stop toward fixing possible punishment for Ihe student. At San Francisco State, where part of the faculty went on strike 10 days ago and the Black Students Union has been staging demonstrations for months, an unexploded time bomb was found Thursday near the office of President S. I. Hayakawa. A smoke bomb forced the evacuation of two campus buildings and police detained a coed for questioning. At Brandeis, 24 students who disrupted a classroom in a' deni- ontration of support for the Negro rebels in control of the communications building signed a letter of apology. The Negroes refused to budge from the communications center but the university restored campus communications by having telephone controls installed in another building. DEATH IN FOG EUREKA, 111.
