JOIN TODATI I t For The Best In Banking - Look To The Leader 9 The JhrsXHatLonjai Bank nnd Trust ca mt. \6rnofi UL I Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation 'BANK By STEPHEN M. AUG WASHINGTON (AP) —The Federal Communications Commission is searching for more broadcast room as everyone from Uncle Sam to commercial television producers, taxi drivers and mobile restaurant owners flood the air waves. The FCC feels the biggest pressure for a spot on the communications dial now is the fast growing land mobile radio service, uses of two-way radios. Some feel tlie government may have to turn to television 's Ultra High Frequency channels to find the room for expansion as more and more governmental agencies and private firms reach for a microphone. Land mobile service includes fire and police departments, the military and public service companies whose need for quick communications is obvious. Less apparent is the need to equip city garbage trucks with two-way radios and radio-dispatched portable pizza and enchilada parlors. But they are there nonetheless. Even the Archdiocese of New York has a radio setup. A segment of the FCC says that the only available space for these services is now currently occupied by the government and commercial UHF television channels 14 through 83. There apparently is little chance the FCC will be able to free the government-held frequencies. The Defense Department has most of them and contends they ai'e needed for military matters. That leaves only the UHF channels and, even though they are sparsely populated with television stations, any decision to allocate them—even if it's only two or three channels—for the two-way radio users would be painful to the FCC. The commission for years has been trying with some success to develop them for commercial and educational use. Since, World War II the larid mobile radio service has grown from practically nothing until today there are more than 230,000 authorizations for such systems in the United States of these, 155,000 are for business. Users of these mobile radio systems have been complaining that their channels are so crowded that base station interference is blotting out communications. Nobody doubts that the UHF! television specbnim is sparsely ; settled. Nationwide there are 121 stations on the 70 channels avaUable while stations are crowded on the 12 Very High Frequency channels—2 through 13. But the FCC has not wanted to cut down the number of UHF channels available for future expansion. U.S. Grant To Du Quoin Plant WASHINGTON (AP) - Eep. Kenneth J. Gray, D-Dl., announced today approval of a $21,078 federal grant to the Grant Phelps-Dodge Aluminum Corp. of Du Quoin, 111., for reimbursement of costs in the training of unemployed persons. The congressman said 46 persons will be trained in a 20- week program in these categories: general utility serviceman; factory maintenance man; quality control inspector; insulating machine operator; stranding machine operator; wire drawer and cabler operator and extruder operator. Gray, who represents the 21st Congressional District, said the grant was approved by . manpower and training division of the U.S. Department of Labor.

(Delo Fhoto Craft) 30 Lawyers In New Crop Of Congressmen WASHINGTON CAP) - Pick a new congressman-elect, any new congressman-elect, and the chances are you will be looking at a middle-aged lawyer, married and a joiner of organizations. That's the statistical average of the 59 Republicans and 14 Democi-ats who will start House service in January — or resume it after an interruption. But the 73 new faces show plenty of variety when looked at individually. The Republicans, for example, have an Alaska homesteader, Rep.-elect Howard W. Pollock, who now practices law but relaxes by pursuing octopus and a big game. Another new GOP member is former Olympic decathlon champion Robert Bruce Mathias of California, who now operates a boys' camp. Among the incoming Demo­ crats is a former newspaper publisher, David Pryor of Arkansas, who switched private careers after starting his public one. Pryor went to law school while serving in the state legislature and was a practicing attorney when he was elected to Congress. Another two-career Democrat is Peter Kyros of Maine, an Annapolis graduate who switched to law after 10 years' naval sei-vice. The age of the newcomei-s averages out a bit under 44. The Republicans run slightly older, while the Democratic average is 41. But the Republicans have the youngest member, as well as the oldest — William A. Steiger of Wisconsin, 28, and William Henry Harrison of Wyoming, 70, who is resuming a congressional career that began in 1951 and was twice interrupted. The class of 1967 is no exception to the rule that the law is the preferred route to publip office in the United States. Of the 73 new members, 30 are attorneys, including 10 of the 14 Democrats. Businessmen make up the next largest category, 17, and there are nine farmers, including several bu||y nessmen who list themselves also as farmers. Dr. Carl L. Schweinfurth for additional information. Out of 493 NDEA institutes approved by the U.S. Office of Education for next summer, Bethany College was one of two to be selected in West Virginia to conduct such programs. 1 I - Keep PESTKtDES out of reach of CHILDREN •.•.effMTMOit er*6ucuiiu AT THE BARGAINS it's Not Hard To See Why You Save More Here.
