DROP OF BUS SERV1CK WOULD CREATE PROBLEMS Elimination of the bus route between Alton and Alton State Hospital would create problems which might result in further overcrowding at the institution. ,The Illinois Public Sen-Ice Commission is studying a request for elimination of such service to the hospital. Alton State has some 500 em- ployes. About 180 of them live on the grounds, the major part of the remainder drive to work. However, there is a minority that has not been' assimilated into car pools or have not been able to arrange for a ride. Thirty-one employes signed a petition which stated that they would pay, without protest, a fare increase. It is estimated that perhaps as many as,66 employes use the buses at times. ~ A regulation prohibits families of employes from living on the grounds, so there is little chance that family men who live in town could ever hope to find quarters on the hospital premises. Conditions are highly crowded, both in regard' to patients and living quarters for employes. The dropping bf bus service could be looked on as a further complication of an already bad situation, one employe said. Visitors at the hospital also would be handicapped, although most of these find rides or have rides of their own. Use of thej car pool system was one of the things that the bus company attorney .complained about before the. commerce commission.
