CHILD GETS TO CHAT WITH DAD IN GERMANY Mrs. Wallace Foster, 906 Washington Ave., and her granddaughter, Rene, 9 ; had an hours conversatior with someone dear to them in Germany the other day. It came about through one of those helpful ham radio operators. This one was Miss Martha Gunter, 1637 Rock Spring Dr. It wasn't an accidental conversation. Miss Gunter had been trying to make contact with some ham operator in Germany who knew William W. Foster, with the Army CID, so that he could talk to Rene, his daughter, before her birthday. Rene is nine today. It was nip-and-tuck whether the birthday present her grandfather, Wallace Foster, had planned would be delivered. This present was a chance to talk to her father. Time was getting close but Miss Gunter kept trying. Saturday she had luck. She located a serviceman who operated a ham station off the post. He said he would do his best to get young Foster by telephone. He did. But the reception was so poor that no one could understand him. The Fosters, here in Alton, were disappointed and thought that was the last chance for Rene to hear her father. Miss Gunter didn't give up. Sunday she called the Foster home to tell them that she had their son back orf the air. However, the elder Foster was at work so he couldn't join the party. Everything else worked out fine on this try. Mrs. Foster said her son's voice was so clear that it was as if he were talking on the telephone from across town. Rene got a chance to hear tier father wish her a happy birthday. . The child is visiting Mr. and Mrs. Foster from Phoenix, Ariz, where she is staying until -her father returns to- the United States. Her mother is with young Foster in Germany at present. One of the comments that the elder Foster made when he heard about the success of the long conversation by radio was that he would have hated to pay the bill if they were talking by trans- Atlantic telephone.

GRAVEST SONS--ALTON first positive step to bring a four-year college to the Madison-St. Clair County area, the Edwardsville Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a dinner meeting for "key ex people" Sept. 25 at which time the proposed program will be discussed. Decision to hold the affair at the country house was reached Monday night when the Chamber of Commerce's College Planning Committee met with a group of interested citizens before the regular board meeting in the community room of the Edwardsville National Bank and Trust Company. The group passed a resolution to invite Southern Illinois University President Delyete Morris to the dinner meeting. No other specific invitations were given out but the committee, aided by Dr. Harold See, director of SIU's residence center in East St, Louis, will meet Monlay to complete the list of those icople who will be invited. The group agreed that those vho will be asked to attend will >e in the main —leading area ndustrialists, as well as church people and educators. No estimate of the number of those incited was reached but it was agreed that the assemblage will not exceed 50 people. The chamber earlier resolved o sponsor the plan for the four -ear college, which will be a branch of Southern Illinois University. In that capacity, the school vill be under the direct admin- stration of Southern Uliniis University and if it is established t will become fully accredited ince it will be supervised and controlled by the state university n Carbondale. Dr. See, who appeared at the meeting, led the discussin among the almost two dozen people attending. He said the Madison- St. Clair area, because of its leavy population, was in the position to have such an insti- :ution. The educator, not speaking officially for SIU, did say he felt the school would accept the sup- crete program was worked out. The local Chamber of Commerce has been working on the college program for about a year now. Though it was an unofficial estimate, Dr. See said approximately two million dollars should be adequate to purchase a site and construct a building. If that amount of money is spent initially, he said, the school would probably accommodate around 1,500 students. No decision as to the site ofj the school was reached Monday night, but Dr. See suggested that an impartial survey by education experts be taken to determine the best spot for the school on the basis of the population needs in the two counties. The results of a detailed population survey taken by SIU was released in April and showed that Madison and St. Clair counties rank low in the percentage of college students in comparison with population both state and national.
