PAGE EIGHT Vote Drive State ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH TUESDAY, JULtf 8,1958 SchoolBonds By WOt K. CHAMBERLAIN Tflejtfiph Correspondent SPRINGFIELD, HI.—Campaign Organization plans are under way to put over the $248 million bond JgMie for the financing of a build Ing program at state colleges and welfare institutions at the November statewide election. Gov. William G. Stratton says educational institutions and alumni are working on them. Literature and speeches will emphasize the need oi the bond issue. Stratton told a press conference last week that the proposition which needs a majority of the total legislative vote to become law is being studied with a view to emphasizing its importance to voters. Purpose of the bond issue is to make more funds available in a shorter time to construct much needed buildings at schools of higher education and mental institutions. The bond issue would provide funds to relieve overcrowded conditions by making permanent improvements at state institutions now tinder the jurisdiction of the "State Welfare Department, the University of Illinois Board of Trustees, the State Teachers College Board and the Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. Proceeds from the bond issue are to be divided as follows: $81 million to the Department of Welfare; $80 million to University of Illinois poard of Trustees; $41 million to Southern Illinois; and $40 million to the Teachers College Board. It sets up a Building Bond Board of the Governor, the attorney general and the state treasurer. The bonds, retireable in 25 yean, will pay not more than 4 per cent , About Elections The governor is still of a mind to take each Illinois election as 't comes. He declines to say whether he will be a candidatef or re-election or for U. S. Senator in 1960. He had been asked what he thought about holding one office and running for another such as U. S. senator, or a U. S. senator running for governor. He said that it all depended on the situation. When asked if this meant he might be a candidatef or U. S. senator two years hentp, he laughed and said: "I like to look at each election as it comes up" referring to 1958. The question as to what he thoughtof an official holding office while running for another, appeared to have to do with U. S.! Sen. William Knowland of California running for governor of the west coast state. Rev. Phillips Expected At Calhoun Saturday HARDIN-The Rev. L. M. Phillips of Bridgeville, Pa., will arrive here Saturday with his wife and 18-month-old son, Larry, for a three-day stay.
