The Jefferson county group, however, went ahead and met. One Marion county member went down, BiU Spain of Salem, and told the Jefferson county members there assembled that they could not hold a legal meeting because there was no quorum , But the Jefferson county mem- hers held the meeting anyway —or what they claimed was a meeting — and voted to have Mrs. Igoe fire Shipp. Marion county members say the action was illegal and they are planning another meeting of their own to determine what happens next. The firing of Shipp coincides with a hassle within the local poverty program over one of its proposqls — a legal aid sei> vice for the poor. Several months ago, a $54,000 federal gi-ant was approved to finance this program, wherein two attorneys would be hired, one in each county, to give legal counsel to the poor. Then, things hit a snag when the Chicago OEO boys decided that the program should be on a five-countj', not a two-county basis. That difficulty was finally smoothed out and plans moved lonvard to pix)ceed on the two- county program as originally set up. Then, the bar association of Jefferson county condemned the progi'am, saying that people should have a free choice of attorneys, that the money should be used to pay the fees (on an agreed, reduced scale) of vai^ ious attorneys rather than have a full-time "govemment lawyer." The Marion County Bar passed a resolution which did not specifically oppose the OEO plan but whicli recommended one having a free-choice feature. An advisory committee —composed of lawyei-s and laymen from the two counties — which had been set up to formulate the program, agi-eed. They work- td out a plan which, they reported, would embody the free- i choice feature and which would be less expensive than the OEO version, since it would not require special secretarial help, office expense, library expense, etc. This committee was later ad- Vised that the Oiicago OEO office would not approve such a plan and that the office would Boon send down one of its officials to "straighten out" the committee. 5 lbs 9-10; under 5 lbs no price; broilers and fryers 25'^-25%.

Raises Local Auction The Mt Vernon Optimist CHub's 3rd annual radio auction, held Saturday night took in approximately $3,100 before expenses, according to Wilton Webb, president of the dub. The sale was considered a huge success, thanks to the spirited bidding of a standing room only crowd, at times, in the Mt Vernon Community Center and to the radio audience calling in on telephones and bidding. Approximately 185 items were offered for sale. These items were donated by Mt Vernon's generous merchants and business men, to whom the Optimist members offer their sincere appreciation. The funds raised are used for Little League baseball and for other youth activ- iUes. The highlight of the auction was the sale of tiie services of five of Mt. Vernon's top educators. General Radiator purchased Arthur Edmison, principal of Casey junior high for $125; Mt Vernon Loan and Building Association t>ought John Alford, superintendent of Mt. Vernon city schools for $125; King City Federal Savings & Loan Association took Howard Rawlinson, dean of Mt. Vernon (Community College for $125; Security Bank bid $125 for Eltis Henson, superintendent of Mt. Vernon township Wgh school and community college; and the First National Bank & Trust Company obtained the services of Gale Ballard, principal of West Salem and Frank- Im grade schools for $150. General Radiator and the financial institutions already have plar.s for the educatofs and ask that the public be on the look-out for them on the public square next Saturday morning from 9:00 until noon. Another feature of the sale was the generosity of the First National Bank and Trust Company in purchasing $169 worth of items and turning them over to Rev. Marion Farmer of the Methodist Orphanage in the hopes of making a tetter Christmas for the childi-en at the orphanage. The Optimist Club again thanks everyone who had any part in making this auction sal'? a success.

To the south of the elevators will be a grand stairway to the basement, backed by a striking sculptured screen 40 feet long and 14 feet tall. There will be two main entrances to the bank—from Tenth street and at the rear, with a walk-in entrance provided frcan Broadway. The second floor of the building will contain the offices of the bank officers, board of directors room and the bank library. S Floon For Rent The tWrd, fourth and fifth floors will be entirely for rental offices— 10,000 squau:« feet of floor space on each floor. "Decision by the board to provide three floors in the magnificent new building for rent or lease shows a profound faith in Mt Vernon's future growth and progress," said Bank President Curtis. He said the 30,000 feet of floor space will be available and will be fmished to the specifications of tenants.

It will also contain mechanical equipment Mirrored Walls The laminated gold glass exterior walls—on the top five floors of the new bank—will be in uniform panels five feet wide and six feet three inches high. The glass panels will be held in place by a rubber zippered molding which, in turn, will be held in place by a unique method of aluminum frames which are recessed. The massiveness of the suc- story struchire will be minimized by the laminated glass on five floors the clear look-through glass walls on the ground floor level. The distinctive new bank building was designed by the .Mt. Vernon architectural firm of Fields Goldman and Magee and the Memphis, Tenn., firm of Wiseman-Bland and Foster. Detailed plans and specifications are on the drawing board ' now and are expected to be completed before the first of the year. "Construction will begin just as soon after that as weather permits," said Bank President Curtis.

The new TV drive-in service is the fust of its kind in southern Illinois. The self-contained imit Is located across the alley south of Security's present drive-in windows, with entrance from Ninth street The service consists of a customer's station on the paved lot and a teller's station inside the bank. It Is easy for the customer to use. The customer drives into the station and presses a button to signal the teller. The teller appears on the TV screen and her voice cranes dearly over the communications system. The door to the cash tray opens and the customer places the deposit In It The teller tiien presses a button, triggering an underground pneumatic tube system which speeds the carrier to the teller's station inside the bank. After processing the transaction, which can be watched by the customer on the TV screen, the teller places the pass book, receipt or cash in the drawer and presses the same button, lendhig the carrier back to the customer. The enth« transaction lakes only a short time and the customer and teller see each other and can converse freely throughout Thomas L. Long Mt V. Soldier On Leave; Going To Viet Nam Spec. 4 Tliomas L.
