Mallett, Republican, Jarvis Township, is a iormer appellate court clerk running again after being out of office Since 1956 "I'm running again inst because I really want to do the job," ho says The Fifth Appellate Court Dis- tnct takes in 37 counties in Southern Illinois Mallett was clerk of the court in 1938-1940, 19-101942; 1950-1956 He was an automobile dealer m Collinsville for 21 years and is now the ov net 1 of a large cattle and giam farm m Jorvis Township. MaUett says his expenence \vith the many details involved in the job make him a good choice foi cleik. If elected, he sas, he intends to spend almost full time on the job, at least three or four days a week, and to be a full time clerk when the appellate court is in session. Besides handling the technical details of appeals, he says, the cleik is responsible for maintenance ol the court's law libraiy, which needs constant attention to keep it up to date. He would like to extend the library privileges now available to Southein Illinois attorneys, particularly by lengthening the houis the library is open. Another innovation he would like to try is a type of movable appellate court Almost 70 per David F. Mallett cent of the court's cases, he estimates, are Madison and St. Clair County cases. Mallett says it would be advantageous for both attorneys and judges if the court could occasionally sit somewhere other than Mount Vernon when such action is warranted by a particularly heavy load of cases fiom a certain aiea Mallett is a member of the Governor's Advisory Council, Farm Bureau and Ainad Temple Shrine.

The $7 million plant -- a ma- ji/r new weapon in the battle against air pollution -- will convert coal into another usable fuel without sulphur emissions, a major cause of pollution, the designers said. Hollis M. Dole, assistant director of the U.S Department of Interior for mineral resources, citing the increasingly short supply of domestic natural gas, said simi'ai p'ants "could lead to a substantial supply of synthe'ie n a ( u r a l gas by the end of the decade." The- p l a n t , which otcunies 3 5 ac-it's on the Southwest Side, will s c i v c as an cxpei imcntal station, not foi commercial use The plant will consume 75 tons of coal daily and produce 15 m i l l i o n cubic feet of gas.

Drive Under Way to Reject Judge Monroe Madison County Circuit Court Judge James O. Monroe has received a vote of no-confidence from the Alton-Wood River Bar Association and from State's Attorney Roland W. Griffith Jr. Both the bar association and Griffith have gone on record urging voters to vote against the retention of Monroe in the Nov. 3 general election. The Madison County Bar Association approved Monroe's retention by a margin of only one vote. Griffith, in a prepared statement, said he felt "compelled" to urge a "no" vote on Monroe's retention. "If I am to fully represent the public, including both parties, I am compelled to take this position," the statement said. "Achieving better government and law enforcement is the primary duty of this office. The voters could not make a better move in promoting these objectives than to remove James 0. Monroe Jr., who lacks judicial temperament from his office. It is my obligation to say so." The Madison County Bar Association's stand on Monroe was the result of a Judiciary Poll in which ballots were mailed to 166 bar association members and in which 121 ballots were returned. Monroe's retention was endorsed by a vote of 56-55. Also endorsed for re-election on Nov. 3 were Circuit Judge Joseph Barr, 111-2, and Circuit Judge Harold R. Clark, 102-11. Clark is seeking election as Supreme Court Justice from the Fifth Appellate Court District. The Madison County Bar Association listed all four circuit judges, three associate judges 15-Year-Old Driver Charged Brcnda J.

Polls will open at 6 a.m. on election day and will remain open until 6 p.m. and seven miagislrales in their poll, although only three of the circuit judges are up for retention. All were recommended for retention with the exception of magistrates Harold O Gwillim and Stephen Jianakoplos, both of Alton. Gwillim received 37 yes votes and 64 no votes, and Jianakoplos received 50 yes votes and 54 no votes. In the survey, the bar association asked attorneys to vote only for those judges before whom they appeared in the past year. Judges were graded by excellent, good, satisfactory, poor and unsatisfactory marks in the categories of knowledge of law, common sense, humanity, courtesy, consideration, industiy and punctuality. Alton-Wood River Bar Association President Clayton Williams said there were 16 voles cast in the Alton-Wood River poll--10 opposing Monroe and six in favor. There are nearly 50 members of the Alton-Wood River Bar Association. Monroe, responding to the Alton-Wood River poll, commented: "Ten out of 80 is not the sense of the Greater Alton Barit is nonsense!" "Judges often have a duty to deny and disappoint," he said. "The losers and the lawyers don't like it, and their opposition is to be expected. Good judges may be known by the enemies they make--in a penitentiary poll, I couldn't get a vote. "In my court, I have resisted the politics and pressures by which a very few lawyers and a very few politicians have tiled to influence or intimidate the court. Their opposition is a sort of distinction, which indirectly certifies my independence and my integrity."

Minister Says Soldiers Hired To Free POWs Los Angeles (AP) An Illinois minister said Thursday he has hired foreign mercenary soldiers for commando raids to free American prisoners of war held in North Vietnam. "We have the man and we have the money," said the Rev. Paul D. Lindstrom. "The only thing that is holding us back is a lack of advisers that could supervise the operations." Lindstrom, founder of the Remember the Pueblo Committee and fundamentalist preacher from Prospect Heights, 111 , told a news conference he decided to stage the raids because, he said, the U.S. State Department is "soft" and has made no sincere efforts to free Americans held prisoner in North Vietnam. He said he has information on where the prisoners are being held and said that the raids would be relatively easy. Most of the prisoners, Lindstrom said, are held in small camps "many of them only have 30 or 40 prisoners; some as few as 10."

Math Program Starts Monday Two mathematics workshops for elementary school teachers in Madison County start Monday--in Granite City and in Wood River--according to Wilbur R. L. Trlmpe, superintendent of the county educational service region. The workshops run for eight weeks, and consist of two-hour weekly meetings starting at 6:30 p.m. One workshop will be at Coolidge Junior High School, Granite City, and is taught by Mrs. Norma Judkins. The other is at East Alton-Wood River High School, and is taught by Mrs. Georgiana Van Buskirk. No college credit will be given for participation, Trimpe said. However, boards of education are encouraged to give professional growth credit. A certificate from the state superintendent of public instruction will be given to teachers who attend regularly. Trimpe said the workshops are part of the Illinois Plan for the Improvement of Instruction in Mathematics and a planned to provide an overview of the "modern approach" to fundamental math teaching. The term "modern," as applied to elementary school mathematics, refers not so much to a change in content as to a change in teaching methods, Trimpe said. Math content hasn't changed much, but the new teaching methods should foster a spirit of adventure, discovery and creativity, he said.
