Gen. William J. Scott is seeking an injunction to prohibit Gordon L. Crulkshank of Rolling Meadows from issuing doctor of divinity degrees from hh Life Science College. Life Science College is a nonresident religious college which confers doctor of divinity degrees and ordains ministers by mall Crulkshank, who refers to himself as an archbishop, is the president of Life Science College and uses his home at 2207 Cardinal Dr. as Its headquarters. A suit filed In Circuit Court by the attorney general's office alleges Crulk- shank sends a certificate or ordination No Settlement In Near Future At General Time Prospects that · settlement can be reached soon between striking members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Union Local 713 and the General Time Corp. In Rolling Meadows continue to appear dim. Although three meetings were held between the parties last week under the supervision of the Federal Mediation and , Conciliation Service In Chicago, a spokesman for the service said yesterday no meetings wen held this week. He Old not know whether talks might be scheduled next week. It would appear that the 124 production employes of the company, already idled for six weeks by the strike, may be manning picket lines for some time. While no official comment from cither side is being made on the status of the contract talks, one union spokesman said "it seems we're farther apart now than we were at the beginning." The stumbling block involves a union demand that wages for new employes and employes with seniority be equalized. The complaint stems from a union charge that new employes arc being hired at higher pay rates than veteran employes. THE UNION Is also asking for a 7 per cent hourly age Increase which it says is well within the federal pay board's allowable guidelines. The company is reluctant to negotiate on the first point, the union says, and is offering Instead a 16tt -cent hourly increase plus additional fringe benefits. The walkout at General Time Is the second major labor action to affect a plant In the area this year. A nine-week strike by employes at Honeywell Inc. in Arlington Heights was settled In May when members of Local 1114 of the United Electrical Union accepted the company's contract offer calling for improved fringe benefits. The negotiations between the IBEW and General Time are the first being conducted since workers at the plant first voted to become a union shop in May. and doctor of divinity degree to persons who fill out an application and send in $25. The suit alleges no instruction or test is necessary to receive the doctor of divinity degree. THE ATTORNEY general's office feels this is in violation of the Illinois Degree, Diploma and Certificate Act which requires degree granting colleges to be certified by the Illinois Superintendent of Public Instruction. The maximum penalty of $10,000 is being sought against Crulk- shank. The suit further alleges Crulkshank did not comply with a subpoena from the consumer fraud division of the attorney general's office to let them see his books and files. A court order enjoining Crulk- shank from issuing degrees is being sought. A spokesman for the attorney general's office said the suit is against Crulkshank personally and is not in any way related to his religion. No attempt is made in the suit to say if the religion of (he Life Science Church is legitimate or not. Crulkshank was served with a summons on Wednesday. He responded to it yesterday by certified mall stating he refused to dignify what the attorney general had said. "THIS IS JUST a political thing. He (the attorney general) uses trial by publication to get votes and encourage the. favor of predominant religions," said Cndkshank. "He Is trying to get the public to think the superintendent of Instruction has control over religious schools but he can't because this would be a violation of the constitution," said Cruikshank. Crulkshank said he applied for a state certificate several years ago but withdrew his application when he found out religious schools do not have to be certified. Religious schools are not exempt from the Degree, Diploma and Certificate Act, according to a spokesman for the attorney general's office. When he first learned an injunction would bo sought Cruikshank said he was not worried because It was quite possible the college was incorporated under five or six different names. Since the suit is filed against Crulk- shank individually if he is found guilty he would not be able to issue degrees under any name, said a spokesman for the attorney general's office.

Final approval of the plan must come from the dry council. The proposed store structure would be a concrete, steel reinforced twin T building occupying 167,000 square feet on the site, according to Stephen Nardi, president of Nardi Development Co., architects for the plan.

When food failed to entice the skunk into capture, the department decided to fight odor with odor and shoed it away with moth balls. the fact that there are a number of other furniture stores in the area. He said the firm expects to draw customers from Chicago as well as the suburbs. · When asked by Mrs. Harold Brissenden commission member if the company was'confident^ could successfully compete with other stores in the area, Pipkin said (he Pennsylvania-based firm had "never bad an unsuccessful venture yet" He added the firm has a chain of 47 stores located throughout the country. t Nardi .then, told the commission that while the owners of the property were confident of the store's ability to compete in the area, the building could easily be adapted to other uses should Lewitz be forced to leave. While the commission approved the recommendation for the annexation and zoning change, it opposed the proposal by Madison Square Garden to dedicate a gravel road along the north end of the property to the city. Commission Chr. Robert Byrnes pointed out that the road could only be used as an entrance to the race track and to service the proposed store, providing no practical use as a public thoroughfare for the dty. .

TV Reception To Get Better -Next Fall Channel 7 (WLS-TV) will construct temporary antennas on the Sears Tower in Chicago next fall, which will eliminate poor television reception in the Northwest suburbs. Meanwhile, Channel 7 officials contend the severe ghosting or double images being received on Channel 7 by local viewers "will not get any worse." Spokesmen for the ABC-owned and operated Chicago station said "People in your area right now have all the adverse effect they will ever have." He added the Northwest suburbs have been hardest hit by the rising Standard Oil Buiding, which has blocked the signal of Channel 7's antenna. He said the Standard Oil Building and the Scars Tower are at such a height now that reception cannot become any worse. The Channel 7 transmitter is located atop the Marina Towers office building, a much smaller structure than the towering skyscrapers now being constructed downtown. Local residents began receiving ghosting on Channel 7 last March and the problem became more severe as construction of the Standard Oil building continued. Channel 7 is the lone major Chicago network affected by the Loop construction. Channel 5 (NBC) and Channel 2 (CBS) transmitters are on the John Hancock Center and thus far there has been little interference. BUT AS THE Sears Tower continues to rise -- the building now is at the 88th floor -- the other two major stations will, also have Interference difficulties. The ·two stations have not determined whether they will relocate their signals on the Sean Tower. ,t. (i Channel 11 (WTTW) also plans to install temporary' antennas on the Sears Tower next fall Area residents have reported interference on Channel 11, but not as severe as on Channel 7. The Sears Tower will be the world's tallest building when completed. Permanent television antennas will not be installed on the massive structure until late in 1974.
