I 500,000 NEW CARS RECALLED (Oontinued from Page 1) ance with provisions of the Highway Safety Act of 1966. It requires auto manufacturei-s to notify the federal government promptly if they discover any car defects after the vehicles go on sale. The law provides that the secretary of commerce could make public as little or as much as he wanted of the defect reports. On cars and trucks built in this country, main defects are faulty braking systems and throttles which could stick at high speeds, the government said. In the import category, the defects ranged from slipping gearehifts on Honda motorcycles to defective brake hoses on Rolls-Royce's Silver Shadow line. TO INVESTIGATE BUILDING SPRINGFIELD. 111. (AP) — The Illinois Legislative Audit Commission agreed today to make a full scale investigation of alleged faulty building construction at Eastern Illinois University, Chai'Ieston.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) - A stock market rally gathered steam early this afternoon as trading grew livelier despite the usual tendency to be cautious before a Thanksgiving Day weekend. Stock prices also advanced in the face of a parade of discouraging economic news. Stock exchanges and banks will be closed Thursday for the holiday and many Wall Streeters will make it a four-day weekend. Analysts said most of the evening-up operations in the mai-ket because of the holiday had been carried out Tuesday. This left room for a smart technical rally after four straight sessions of decline. Autos all "showed fractional gains despite the deepening slump in auto sales and the recall of thousands of 1967 model cars. ' The list as a whole also had to buck a government prediction that construction next yeai- would have its first decline since 19qO. The Associated Press avei-age of 60 stocks at noon was up 1.0 at 292.1 with industi'ials up 1.0, rails up .8 and utilities up .9. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was up 4.18 at 799.16. Blue chips and glamor stocks shared in tlie rise which began cautiously at the opening then gradually fanned out as rising prices attracted tradei-s and in- vestoi'S. ' IBM and Xerox spurted 7 points each. Raytheon, planning an acquisition, ran up 3 points.. Ford and General Motors erased small early losses before they produced their fi-actional gains. The top fom' steelmakers all showed nan-ow gains. Polaroid rose 4. Up a point or so were many issues, including Sperry Rand, Control Data, U.S. Gypsum, Homestake, Anaconda and Westinghouse Elec- U-ic.

Aldrin did not encounter the fatigue problems strollers before him met. "I think we learned the gi-eat value of a restraint system," Aldrin said. To do a series of semmingly innocuous tasks like hooking little rings to little hooks, Aldrin investigated the use of waist straps and restraint boots called "golden slippers." "We have to fix the body in position so we can devote our entii-e interest to the work at hand," he said. "It can be done without the waist tether, but it can't be done with the same freedom of action." At Sesser Vandals Warned On Destruction OfXmas Lights SESSER — Public Christmas decorations are installed here and they^ are going to remain under the watchful eye of the police department. Police Chief Jim Storey today warned vandals that prosecution awaits persons caught destroying or taking the decorations. He said last year lights and ornaments were broken by vandals and some apparently stolen. Since then an extra policeman has been added to the department now headed by Storey. The chief said, "It may seem like a harmless prank to take an ornament or break one but the people who pay for this community betterment project work hard for the money and deserve better treatment. We Intend to keep a close watch and to push to the fullest extent for prosecution of violators."

The top tax levy possible would be 20 cents, but anything above ten cents would have to be approved at a referendum, Bannon said. Bannon presided at a lively question and answer session after his talk. In answer to a question he said the City of Mt. Vernon, if it desired, could turn over its park system to a park district and thus eliminate the present five-cent tax levied to operate the park. This, however, is not mandatory, the speaker said. The present five-cent tax in the city of Mt. Vernon raises about $18,000, Bannon was told. Mayor Joe Martin, said that this amount is insufficient to operate and maintain the present park system.

When the hospital lost its physical therapist In 1961, it forced it to close the Departmeilt as it was unable to obtain thfe services of a qualified registered physical therapist to fill the vacancy. After a long hard search, during the past year, the hospital has finally secured the services of an extremely well-trained, and qualified registered physical therapist, Hugh Lam. Lam received his B.S. Degree in Physical Therapy from Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, California, and prior to coming with Good Samaritan Hospital was a consultant therapist for .Americana Nursing Homes in Decatur and Springfield. Sister M. Joanne, adntdnistra* tor, said that the need for an efficient Physical Therapy De* parhneni has not lessened since the hospital had to close the department in 1964, but that the difficulty in obtaining a qualified person to head the department presented a major obstacle that had to be overcom?. She also said that the hospital is ready and willing to furnish physical therapy and rehabilitative services to out-patients (patients that are not admitteil to the hospital) but the treatments must be prescribed by the patient's doctor. Lam, upon receiving the pre« Bcription, will be able to effectively assist the medical staff by carrying out the necessary physical therapy and rehabOlta- tive services. • Ljim is the only registered phj?. sical therapist in Jefferson county and there are only about 3 or 4 in the whole of southern Illinois.
