The grant, known as the Veterans Cost of Instruction Program, is a yearly fund given to colleges and universities which maintain a certain number of veterans throughout the year, according to Roy Brown of Edwardsville, a student worker in the Veteran Affairs Office. "For the nearly 2,000 veterans on the SIU-E campus, we have been given the grant primarily to provide services for them," he said. The major project that the Veterans Affairs Office must maintain is that of an outreach program to veterans in the Madison county area. "We have to inform the veterans of the opportunities available to them at SIU-E. The money we receive from the Office of Health, Education and Welfare is dependent upon that program," Brown said. Besides the outreach program, the veterans are provided academic counseling. "We have two full-time manpower people in the Admissions Office to advise veterans who wish to take advantage of what the University has to offer," Brown said. According to Brown, this year's grant had been cut from the amount received last year. "A bill was introduced in Congress asking for more money, but we didn't receive it," he said. The reason for the reduction was that more colleges and universities applied for money this year, according to Brown.

It was a glorious battle, but the Rebs lost again. (The reenactment of a civil war fight called the "battle of Judy Creek," held in conjunction with Glen Carbon's annual Glen Fest celebration Saturday, was indeed realistic. (The 2nd and 16th Missouri Infantry State Guard Civil War Reenactment Group remained faithful to historical details of dress, weapons and battle tactics. (Those who watched the pitched battle on a field beside Judy Creek in Glen Carbon Saturday saw what they might have seen in a North - South skirmish more than a hundred years ago. (And a reporter covering the even might have fantasized that he was Matthew Brady, recording the scene on film for posterity.) Soldiers of the Southern de- tatchment seemed a bit nervous as they camped in a wooded area near the creek and by jim broadway editor of the intelligencer waited to meet the enemy. They numbered just about 20 --about the same as the Yankee contingent. Their mission was to take a strategic hill. They would be at a disadvantage, easy targets in the field below for the bluecoats waiting on higher ground. Moreover, the lads in gray were poorly armed. Some carried only handguns. Riflemen were low on ammunition. They were one weapon short for the number of their troops. The unarmed Reb was a youth of no more than 12; he carried the Confederate banner. The Northern troops knew of the impending Rebel advance.

They were confident. They had a plan. Allow the Rebels to advance to the middle of the field, then rip at them with rifle fire and send cavalry troops to cut off their retreat. And they had a cannon. A beautiful piece with a booming voice and deadly accuracy. The North waited. The South advanced. In a column of twos, the Rebels marched along a wooded path that led them on to the battlefield, their banner raised as high as their hopes and their courage. They spread out on the field and advanced in groups of four and five. Booommm! The cannon spoke with fire and smoke, and the Rebs flattened themselves on the ground below. A line of bluecoats rose up in the tall weeds at the foot of the hill. Their rifles cracked in unison, and a few rebels fell. A medic and a nurse rushed to the aid of the wounded Southerners. One was helped frofti the field hi agony. Another was comforted where he fell dying. Booommm! The battlefield was rocked by another camion blast. Yankee cavalrymen circled behind the Rebs and fired upon them with handguns. The ill-equipped Rebs fought on. Two bluecoats fell from the line at the base of the hill. A cavalryman was dropped from his mount. Another Yankee fell to a' Southern sword in hand-to-hand combat. But the Rebels faced inevitable defeat. All but a half-dozen were cut down, wounded or dead, by the time they fired their last round of ammunition. Their courage remained to the end; they had lost the means to fight, but not the will. The smoke from the battle hung low over the field when the rebel band surrendered. The strategic Yankee outpost above the field at Judy Creek remained intact. The bluecoats had won, but they had learned by hard experience of the courage and fighting spirit of Johnny Reb. SIU-E Program Ponds Under Study Astronaut Carr ing the two-year journey of le- wis and Clark. Also on display are dioramas displaying nineteenth century America. Zoning Board Requests Made Bernard and Lellie Kuehn and Dorothy a,nd Jacob Schmidt requested a special use permit from the Madison Conn- ty Zoning Board of Appeals to divide a 4.5 acre tract of land into two parcels in am Agricultural District in Jarvis Township.

Shafer and Arthur Vogt Jr. requested a specit.1 use per to place a mobile home on a farm in an Agricultural District in St. Jacob Township. Lester and Helen Reigel requested a special use permit to place a double wide mobile home on property in an Agricultural District in St. Jacob Township. The zoning board will make on the site hearings on the requests on Aug. 12 The chemical composition of salty, briny ponds is being studied by two high school students who are working this summer at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. Both students received grants sponsored by the American Chemical Society. Gerald Peppers and Portia Jeffers, who are seniors at Lincoln High School in East St. Louis, are working in the SIU-E chemistry department on Project Catalyst, according to David Rands, professor of chemistry and supervisor of the project. "The program is for students who come from culturally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds," Rands said. "They must have stated their interest and 'shown their ability in chemistry to be selected for the project," he said. Each of the students was assigned to an ongoing project in the department. Project Catalyst involves the determination and calculation of dissolved oxygen in salt waters, according to Professor Rands. "Studying this kind of system is an indicator of the biological activity in the ponds," he said. Professor Rands' original work, with the assistance of a friend, was done in the Bahamas in salt mines. Together , they studied the chemical salts in ponds for the salt works. Today Rands is doing more research through the project for the works, In doing so, he is duplicating the salty, briny w-aters found in the Bahamas salt works for Project Catalyst. Later these results will be applied to help out in the Bahamas, according to Rands. Also helping with the project is Ron Buettner, a university student 'majoring in chemistry. "He tois been a great help to Peppers and Miss Jeffers, who spend as many as seven hours a day in the laboratory," Professor Rands said. This is the second year for tb.e grant which provides opportunities for high school students, according to Professor Rands. "It is good experience for them, and gives them an idea about what our department has to offer them," he said.
