I*' THE HERALD Friday, September 3, 1971 Section 4 ^| Ogilvie Approves Bills For Aged SUZANNE E. CIANI, of San Fran- citco, is at work on her "Buchla Board," an elaborate electronic syn- thesiier on which she composed special "fish music" for Woodfield, the enclosed shopping complex opening Sept. 9 in Schaumburg. The "fish music" will be heard by shoppers as they view a series of three large aquariums in the central Grand Court of the three-level mall. She Composed 'Fish Music' For Woodfield A young California composer and a complex electronic gadget called a "Buchla Board" have teamed up to bring a new exciting dimension to Woodfield, the mammoth enclosed mall shopping center scheduled to open its doors in Schaumburg Sept. 9. Wood/ieW's developers have created an environment aimed at "providing visually exciting surroundings for the thousands of shoppers who will visit the shopping center daily." A part of this environment is a complex of three large aquariums, stocked with exotic tropical fish and plants located in the Grand Court of the shopping center. Suzanne E. Ciani, of San Francisco, was commissioned by Woodfield developers to compose "fish music" by utilizing a unique electronic synthesizer. The music will be heard over a special tape system by shopeprs as they peer into "port-holes" to view the undersea life. "I have attempted," says Miss Ciani, "to create the subtlety and mystery of an underwater ambience with sounds 'swimming' past each other like exotic fish." The "Buchla Board," used by Miss Ciani to compose the musical score, is a highly-sophisticated electronic device that enables the musician to control all the parameters of a sound -- timbre, amplitude, frequency, attack, etc. and the way in which sounds relate to each other -- rhythm, counterpoint, harmony, and texture. Although adept at playing the piano and the Indian Flute, Miss Ciani has been devoting 'her efforts to work with electronic musical devices since 1968. An honors graduate, her compositions on the "Buchla Board" have received wide notice both in this country and in Europe. Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie has approved legislation (Senate Bill 1014) governing the Department of Mental Health in transferring patients to nursing homes, sheltered care homes or homes for the aged. The legislation permits the supervisor of the hospital to determine whether patients require further hospitalization and can live independently in the community, or under the supervision of responsible relatives, or require personal care with a "suitable family home or other licensed facility approved by the department." Patients eligible for transfer are those whose behavior is similar to persons already living in the nursing homes. Persons requiring additional care are to be placed "only in specialized residential care facilities which meet department standards, including restricted admission policy, special staffing and programming for social and vocational rehabilitation," in addition to the licensing requirements. Patients in aftercare facilities must be visited by a representative of the Department of Mental Health once a month, the bill provides, and must be removed immediately if they are being improperly cared for. THE GOVERNOR also approved HB 328, adding a representative of the County Nursing Home Association of Illinois and a representative of the Sheltered Care Home Association of Illinois to the advisory council on nursing homes, sheltered care homes and homes for the aged. The bill deletes the representative from the Illinois Association of Supervisors and County Commissioners, so that the advisory council now consists of 12 members. The governor also approved SB 539, providing full retirement benefits to state employes retiring after 35 years of service, regardless of their age, and SB 958, permitting the Department of Revenue to cancel unenforceable debts after ten years. The action must be reported to the auditor general. Other bills signed by the governor are: Bicycle Commuter Day Set Next Thursday has been set aside as Bicycle Commuter Day in Chicago by the A s s o c i a t i o n of Bicycle Commuters (ABC) Highlight of the day's activities will be an organized ride beginning at Washington Square, at the corner of Clark and Walton, beginning at 8 a m. and ending at the Civic Center Plaza. "The purpose of Bicycle Commuter Day is twofold -- to recognize the growing number of cycling commuters and to promote the values of cycling in general," said Miss Helen Stoffey, chairman of ABC. In case of rain, the ride will take place on Friday. ABC, headquartered at 1737 N. North Park, was founded in July 1970 to help solve the problems created by the in- creasing number of cyclists in Chicago, both for commuting and for recreation. "THE NUMBER of commuter cyclists has increased to 11 times what it was just three months ago," said Miss Stoffey. This increase is because cycling is fun, good exercise, less frustrating than driving, doesn't cause pollution, reduces auto congestion and is inexpensive. Improvements sought by the association includes establishing bicycle commuter routes on low-volume streets throughtout the city, providing bicycle parking facilities in business and shopping areas, expanding recreational bicycle paths and promoting bicycle licensing legislation. "Today there are more than 27 lots providing parking for bicycles and 60 other garage owners have expressed interest if we can show a demand for such facilities," she said. SHE SAID ONE of ABC's greatest concerns now is bicycle theft, which is deterring many people from riding to work. Miss Stoffey said in 1969 the Chicago police department found 1,451 bikes, but were only able to return 81 or less than 6 per cent to their proper owners. The association wants to see compulsory bike licensing in Chicago. "Judging from the response of the administration, Chicago is progressive enough to realize this and when all the bicycling problems are solved, Chicago will be the best prepared large city in the country to handle the bicycle boom," she said.

It also sets strict deadline dates for the renewal of a pet shop and dog dealer licenses, and provides for increased fees for original and renewal licenses. --HB 1841, creates the International Trade and Port Promotion Advisory Committee in the Illinois Department of Business and Economic Development to supersede 'four existing advisory committees.
