Should this improvement be added in the future, consistency with the Springfield and Greene County comprehensive development plans would be achieved, and the relatively hlgn volume of traffic demands in the Blue Grass Road corridor would be satisfied." The committee, meeting io commission offices at Republic last night, found the Highway Commission's statement of envi. ron mental impact satisfactory, in that it "sufficiently assures that proper precautions are planned to prevent sedimenta tion of Fellows Lake." The commission recently de clined to act on the proposed re routing, because it questioned the 'wisdom of half-diamond interchanges at Valley Water Mill Road and Blue Grass Road. At a meeting of the technical plan ning committee of the commis sion yesterday, V. B. Unsell, dis trict engineer for the highway department, explained the plan to provide outer roadways be tween the two intersections and Executive Director Glenn Griffin conveyed this plan to the executive committee last night.

In a telegram to the mayor, Sen. Everett Jordan, Congressmen Al Quie and John Buchanan, representing ton Congressional Prayer Breakfast Fellowship, said Feb.

19 and 20 have been designated for the national prayer effort. Mayor Stillwell regretted that the wire didnt reach him in time for a request that the Ministerial Alliance convey the message to the public from the pulpit but he believed many prayers will be said in Springfield that the president's trip will result in improved understanding between this nation and China. Jackson of Washington, Vance Hartke of Indiana and Muskie visited union leaders at the AFL-CIO executive council meeting in Miami Beach to drum up labor support. Humph rey was slapped down. AFL-CIO President George Meany, commenting on Humphrey's hopes for the labor feder ation's endorsement before the national convention, said: "Not a chance."

The college officials testified a plateau of 4100 students is ex pected at the Jophn school by 1980. Dr. Bilungsley noted the school has- an "open door" admissions policy, but only eight per cent of its 3100 students are from out-of-state. Requirements for out-of-state students are higher than for Missouri high school graduates, be said. "Missouri Southern College is ready to take its place among the five other state colleges be cause the institution is render ing similar service as a fully sc credited institution of higher learning," Rep.

Young testified. The bin, which would become effective July, 1973, would ter minate the existence of the present Jasper County Junior College District, Dr. Billingsley stated. It would also change the statutes so the institution would no longer operate under two governing boards and two sepa-rate sets of state statutes.

The work of our ways ana Means committee is such that I Just cannot take away from the committee for sufficient time to go Into the states that conduct these presidential primaries and make that kind of campaign." But the congressman said none of the other Democrats in the race appear to be attracting enthusiastic support, and be might get the nomination on the second ballot at the convention. In Washington, meanwhile, the Stnate Democratic Policy Committee called for public censure of presidential aide Haldeman for saying critics of UIM.f. ln.i peace proposal are consciously aiding and abetting the enemy.
