fiatebura Reaiswr-Mail. 6al«hu»a. Ill, Saturday. June 29, 1963 Republicans Meet Edict to Close (Continued from page l) River Forest, Republican majority leader, marched to the rostrum, took over the gavel, and pronounced the Senate In recess until Saturday morning. Meanwhile, Seriate' Democrats had left. In the House, Lewis officially accepted Kerner's proclamation Housing Code Heads Agenda For Council Galosburg's Housing Code will get its second reading Monday at the City Council meeting in City Hall at 7:30 p.m. The first reading was June 3, and since that time has been approved by the Plan Commission. Other ordinances that will be brought up at the meeting include final reading on authorizing a two- hour parking zone in front of 710 W. Main St., first reading on amending the animal ordinance to conform with state statutes, first reading on authorizing the city to dispose of lost or abandoned articles and first readings on annexation of Immaculate Heart of Mary parish property to the city and appointing a corporate trustee to invest cemetery trust funds. Two resolutions will be discussed. One would authorize construction of a storm sewer from Rock Island Avenue to the Cedar Fork, and the other would authorize a street light on Broad Street between Fremont and Sanborn streets. . The council will consider a recommendation from the Plan Commission to reclassify property on the northwest corner of Seminary and Grove streets to CI and restrict its use to clinics. Seek Rezoning The council will study a request allowing clinics to be built in R -3 district with a special permit. The Plan Commission has disapproved this program. The commission will also ask the council to approve a nursery at 465 S. Henderson St. Bids will be taken on city insurance, tree removal, non-arterial street resealing, resurfacing East North Street from Kellogg to Farnham streets and improving that street from Prairie to Kellogg streets. Requests will be considered to allow the Civil Air Patrol to acquire used city two-way radios, to resurface N. Prairie St. between Sanborn and Dayton streets, to give Charles Lamb two additional taxicab permits and to allow Galesburg Import Motors, Inc., to attach to the former Knox County Highway Department sewer outside the eastern city limits. The pre-council meeting at 7 p. m. will consist of meeting with applicants for taxi cab driver's licenses. The board of local improvement will meet at 7:20 p. m Street Buckles, Heat Does It 14 -ton Ask Study Of Overpass Heat finally caused the surfacing at Sanborn and Henderson streets to buckle Friday night. Joe Watson, acting director of public works, said the street had shown signs of buckling Thursday, and the plus 90-degree weather yesterday finally caused it. This is a usual occurrence during hot months, Watson said, with the most trouble on brick roads that have been blacktopped. The failure at Sanborn and Henderson raised the blacktoppiug up about a foot. The block of Sanborn Street east of Henderson is barricaded, and northbound traffic on Henderson has been cut to one lane because port of the buckling extended into the curbside lane. Watson said the street should be repaired by Wednesday or Thursday. and gaveled the House to a close. Earlier, the House under Lewis' direction certified to Kerner that the two branches were in disagreement aver adjournment. This gave Kerner the power to prorogue the session—winding it up for the next 18 months. The last governor to exercise the Same constitutional authority was Adlal E. Stevenson in 1949. The late former Gov. Dwight Green shut down a special ses sion in the same fashion in 194A. There were immediate threats of retaliation against Kerner's action. After Bidwill took over the gavel amid all the confusion, the Senate voted to reconsider its approval of a bill appropriating $7 million for salaries of the governor, lieutenant governor, other elected state officials and depart* ment heads. ' But it appeared doubtful the GOP Senate could make stick any decision to withhold the appropriation. . Sen. George Drach of Springfield, Republican whip, questioned that Kerner's proclamation ending the session was legal. Drach contended the Senate did not receive any official notice from the House requesting final adjournment and did not have a chance to disagree. When the fight flared in the open over the move to oust Peters, Lewis angrily told the House. "If one man being a chairman of a commission is more important that the law of Illinois, I Want to know." Customarily, the 14-member budgetary commission organizes and electsa chairman ot the end of the legislative session. Because of the uproar, Peters' status as chairman was left unchanged although he could be removed at a future meeting of the commission. The commission, composed of legislators, has eight Republicans and six Democrats on its mem' bership. Peters said he was fearful the House Republican members could form a coalition with Democrats and defeat him as chairman Powell, a potent force in the legislature and an old crony of Peters, didn't hestitate to say where he stood in a showdown. "I've been Peters' friend for a long time," Powell said. "But when one man thinks he can use his influence to impede state gov* ernment, it's time for a change." Powell added, "When I heard there might be a fight, I said I could be for Murphy." One of the incidents that caused House tempers to explode earlier this week was the Senate's refusal to approve funds to refurbishing House committee rooms. When some House members threatened to filibuster and tie up action on pending Senate bills, the Senate changed its mind and appropriated the funds. Caught in the fight over Peters was the Illinois Board of Economic Development and the Illinois Commission on Human Relations. At Peter's insistence, the Senate had drastically cut two-year appropriations for the two agencies. Peters had agreed Friday to restore part of the cut. But then he got wind of the ouster move against him and withdrew from the agreement. As a result, the cuts stood. House members reacted by sending down to defeat a Peters' proposal for a constitutional amendment to permit county treasurers to succeed themselves in office. Also lost in the shuffle was an other proposed constitutiona amendment to allow sheriffs to serve consecutive terms. Before Kerner declared the leg islature session adjourned, Peters said he would not forget the attempts to oust him as budgetary chairman. "I want to warn you of one thing," he said. "You haven't got rid of me." The two houses of the Illinois General Assembly sent the director of the State Department of Public Works and Buildings a resolution Friday requesting a Study be made of the overpass on III. 150 over the Burlington Railroad southeast of Galesburg; The resolution, sponsored jointly by Sen. Richard R. Larson, (R* Galesburg) and Rep. ft. E. Anderson (R-Galesburg), said that there have been an unnecessarily large number of accidents at the over- CoikgeMi Passenger Train fin Pern TOT p u T • Independence IJTB&U. 1111111 *69 pass. From 1953 through March 1963, 54 accidents have occurred at the location, resulting in four deaths. The resolution said the design of the overpass and its approach curves are largely responsible for the excessive number of accidents. The department was asked to ascertain whether eliminating the overpass and replacing it with a crossing at grade level would be feasible. However, the legislators said any method of correcting the hazards would be satisfactory. f ighway Toll Shades War's, Amvets Told JACKSONVILLE—"In the 187 year history of our country, a little less than 605,000 lives have been lost in battle. Rut in the approximate 65-year history of the automobile, almost 1 ,5 million lives have been needlessly and uselessly wasted on our streets and highways." Citing these figures, Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier urged members of the Illinois Amvets and their Auxiliary to join in the battle that is taking place on Illinois highways. Speaking at their annual con vention here, Carpentier pointed out 84 more people have been killed on Illinois highways this year over the same period in 1962. Rate Increasing "Following the adoption of the present driver license law in 1953, traffic fatalities decreased steadily until 1961, when relaxation occurred, and when relaxation enters into such a program in any way, shape or form, it affects the whole program," Carpentier said. Carpentier asked the group to work for strict but fair enforcement of traffic laws in their communities, and for complete reporting of all convictions for traffic violations to his office so that dangerous drivers can be taken off the road. ________ What can be considered the oldest bell in Galesburg will ring July 4 with ether belts in the city lit observance of Independence Day. ' The Knox College bell, recast el years ago from two earlier ones, wilt be rung for four minutes Thursday at l p.m. The Junior Woman's Club is sponsoring the citywide bell ringing at that time. The Knox bell, at one time the only one in town, originally served the entire community. It was first located in the wooden academy building on Cherry St. where the Fidelity Federal Savings and Loan Assn. now stands. Later it was moved to another college building, and finally was installed in Old Main after construction was finished in 1857. The original bell was replaced in 1864 with a larger one* to call students to class and signal victories in intercollegiate competition. It was also used, before athletics became important in the nation, to signal a Knox victory in oratorical contests. When John Huston Finley, later a Knox president and editor of the New York Times, won the oratorical championship in 1887, the bell was rung so vigorously it cracked, much like the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Pa. However, the Knox bell could still be used. The bell was recast in 1902 KENOSHA, Wis.

Ambulances, private station wagons and several buses in Kenosha for the state Veterans of Foreign Wars convention brought the injured to Kenosha hospitals. Authorities said most of the injured suffered bloody noses, cuts and bruises. It was believed some of the injured suffered broken bones. The accident occurred near the Truesdell, Wis., depot south of Kenosha. The engine of the five-car passenger train was practically demolished, but the engineer and fireman escaped injury.
