Galesburi Wednesda Threatens I Ozark Posts L 4 New Record For Patrons WASHINGTON <UPI) — The nation's railroads announced today they will place new work rules into effect fit one minute after midnight July 11 despite union Warnings that such ft move would trigger a national rail Strike. J. 15, Wolfe, chairman of the railroad's negotiating fusal to accept recommendations of a White House board has led to "a complete breakdown" in talks designed to end the dispute. President Kennedy on June 15 asked both sides to undertake intensive efforts to settle the dispute until July 10 without changing the rules or calling a walkout. Youths Have Patriotism Kiwanis Told Rowen Aldrich, a teacher at George Churchill Junior High School, told Kiwanis Club members Tuesday that young people are conking to sense the mission of this nation in setting ideals for the other nations of the free World. Although the boys take great pride, in the United States, it is not the narrow national pride of earlier years, he said. They also have concern for the rights of man everywhere in the world. Intelligent patriotism demands concern for national problems such as the extension of civil rights, preservation of wild life and water supply, Aldrich said. Boys particularly need the active direction of fathers, ministers and teachers to guide this natural patriotic feeling, he added. He spoke at the club's regular weekly meeting at the Custer Inn. Rev. Ordell Peterson was program chairman. Guests introduced were Russell Jacobs of Peoria and Phil Bulkeley of Abingdon. At the next meeting Tuesday, the club will play host to 37 foreign exchange students at luncheon. The students will provide the day 's program, terested in attending may come at 12:50 p.m. to the Custer Ballroom. To make reservations for the luncheon they may call William L. Goodwin at Galesburg Senior High School. A record number of passengers boarded Ozark Air Lines flights at the Galesburg Municipal Airport during June, it was announced today. Airline resident manager Ray Haun reported an alltime high of 351 persons enplaning during the month. This is 33 more than the previous high established in April. Another high mark, but not a record, was established during the month when 222 Ozark passengers deplaned at the Galesburg airport. The new rules would result in elimination of thousands of jobs and make sweeping changes in working conditions for men who run about 95 per cent of the trains in this country. The railroads came as Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz called in Wolfe and Haun reported that the air line has experienced locally a 20 per cent increase every month over corresponding months a year ago. "All indications show we will keep pushing the record to new highs 200,0001 i n future months, 1 ' he said. The increase in passengers was experienced despite new flight announcement I schedule announced June 11 which reduced the Galesburg-St.Louis route to one flight a day. No additional flights are foreseen at heads of the five rail unions to make proposals looking toward a P^sent, although the larger^ Con settlement. vair 40-passenger planes will replace the DC 3 27-passenger planes after the airport's north-south run- ress had been made^ on key^is- way is expanded po SS ibly next. But Wirtz said no real prog sues including whether firemen y €ar> _ are needed in diesel locomotives in freight and yard service. "Hollow Mockery Persons m- Illinois Guards Prepare for Field Training Division artillery units of the Illinois National Guard from Galesburg, Monmouth and Macomb will undergo field training Aug. 3-17 at Camp McCoy, Wis. This announcement came today from the Illinois Information Service in Springfield. Galva's unit will leave this Saturday for two weeks training at Camp Ripley, Minn. Training at officers Wolfe said negotiations so far have been a "hollow mockery" of bargaining. But he told a news conference that today's announcement "does not preclude consideration of any construction suggestions by the President, the secretary of labor or any other interested party."

Joining in the tintlnabulation from the majestic tower of First Lutheran Church (above) will be a bell purchased in 1851 when the church was founded. The bell was made in Sweden and was used in the First Lutheran Church's two other buildings before being installed in the new belfry. The 4 bell ringing ceremony is sponsored by the Galesburg Junior Worn* en's Club. City, state and Daughters of the American Revolution officials have urged the participation of all residents who have access to bells, chimes, or carillons. r Research to 2 Railroads Denied; Bov I Start Course i Q . i i For Nurses Is sentenced recommendations cepted presidential boards but charged that the five unions have "adamantly refused to make any tion to Bernie Paul Weaver, 17, realistic concessions." of rural Coal Valley, who pre"The refusal of the operating viously had pleaded guilty to a union to accept an^ part of either burglary charge.

Main St., was reported in fairly good condition today at Cottage Hospital, where he was taken by First and Puckett ambulance after being struck by a car Tuesday around 10:35 p.m., in front of 1892 Grand Ave. Driver of the car was Kenneth W. Albert, 45, of 75 Division St., who told police the man was walking in the lane of traffic with his back toward oncoming traffic. The driver applied the brakes and the car skidded 78 feet, according to the report. Another motorist, G. D. Griffeth, 52, of 1349 E. Losey St., the report stated, traveling in the opposite direction, almost hit the pedestrian at Ohio and Grand avenues, where he was said to have walked across the street in front of the Griffeth car.

Before pronouncing sentence, Judge Mathers referred to prior probation problems, and mentioned that two youths probably will be in court next week in connection with violation of probation granted them in circuit court. "We run a big risk, as far as society is concerned, every time we give a boy probation," he commented. Arguments were presented during the hearing by State's Atty. Donald C. Woolsey and the youth's attorney. Concurring in Herbener's earlier recommendation that probation be denied, Woolsey cited the charges pending against the youth in three other counties and said he believed one of these counties would sentence the boy if Knox County did not. Weaver's attorney told the court that this client had no previous trouble until the series of incidents, all of which took place within a short period of time. The attorney said he believed the boy could be rehabilitated if placed on probation. Plead Guilty Weaver was one of three youths who pleaded guilty to the Feb. 26 burglary of the home of James Horine, Rio Route 1. One of the youths previously was sentenced to the penitentiary as he was ineligible for probation due to a prior felony conviction. A second youth was placed on probation, with a sentence of 90 days at the Illinois State Farm in connection with his probation. Herbener's probation report referred to theft charges against Weaver in Mercer and Henry counties and burglary in Rock Island County. The program is scheduled to begin Sept. 16 with a class of 16 student nurses from Grace Hospital School of Nursing in Detroit, Mich. All facets of mental health and treatment will be taken up during quarterly 13-week training periods, it was reported by Dr. Thomas Tourlentes, superintendent at State Research. "This is an important step in the full development of Galesburg State Research Hospital's total mission as a phychiatric residency training and service center and one we have looked forward to for a long time," Tourlentes said. He said discussions will be held later concerning possible participation of Galesburg Cottage Hospital School of Nursing in the phychiatric training program. Candidates for the faculty are being interviewed, and accreditation by the state Registration and Education Department is being completed. CHICAGO <AP)-Two railroads which want to merge with the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad are sharpening their arguments in an effort to woo Rock Island stockholders. Directors of the Rock Island and the Union Pacific had already approved a merger program. But in a late entry, Ben Heineman, chairman of the Chicago and North Western Railway, proposed that his road merge with the Rock Island. The Rock Island is already preparing to present to its stockholders the Union Pacific's terms for buying up Rock Island stock. However, nine Rock Island stockholders who think a merger with Heineman's North Western would be a better deal itiade preparation Tuesday to carry their case before their fellow stockholders. Shareholders Railroaded? Lake Bracken Horseshoe Meet Set for Sunday The Knox County Horseshoe Club at Lake Bracken will hold its second annual membership horseshoe tournament Sunday at 1 p.m. with entries being accepted Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Andy Horn of Galesburg is the defending champion. The Rock Island management agreed to mail to stockholders any material the North Western advocates submit. The North Western and the Union Pacific have each submitted a plan to buy up Rock Island stock shares with an involved formula offering cash, plus its own stocks and bonds. Sam Rothbart of Chicago, one of the nine stockholders who favor North Western's deal, says North Western's offer figures out to about $30 million more. He said he couldn't understand the directorate of the Rock Island promoting the Union Pacific offer, adding: "We are being railroaded." 9 FEATURES TURKEY and DRESSING Cranberry Sauce, Potatoes, Gravy, Vegetable or Salad, Rolls, Butter, Coffee or Ice Tea.

However, because of administrative delays and the fact that the law takes effect on a holiday, there is likely to be little or rio legal sale of liquor across the bar for at least several days. The first person to buy a legal drink in Iowa since the 1930s probably will be on a train. Two railroads—the Burlington and the Rock Island—have applied for licenses.

A turn of the tide was indicated with the election of Harold Hughes as governor in November by Iowa which usually has voted solidly Republican. Hughes is a Democrat, a former truck driver, a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, and prior to taking office was a lay Methodist minister. He announced early in his campaign that he favored legalizing the sale of liquor by the drink. ^ He said Iowa already had liquor by the drink in fact, but charged that winking at the illegal sales caused disrespect for law enforcement generally. And he noted that estimates of' potential state revenue from liquor by the drink ranged up to $20 million a year.

Otto Kerner Suid last year that he Will seek his party's nomination for a second term. ' Campaign Starts Early Percy said his campaign strategy was to start early, study the problems of Illinois, and tell the voters during a nine-month campaign what the problems were and what should be done to correct them. Flanked by his wife and three of his five children, Percy outlined his views in announcing his candidacy. Illinois, he said, "is rapidly falling behind the times...the space age is all but passing Illinois by." "There are not enough new jobs being created," he said. "Illinois needs and deserves an administration in Springfield that understands how to encourage growth. "Illinois has all the human and materia] resources needed for a powerful new surge forward," he said. "The one thing that has been lacking is the kind of leadership that builds unity and enthusiasm and confidence in the future." The job of the next governor, he said, "is to, build the state of Illinois by creating greater opportunities for its people." Percy said his qualifications for governor included administrative' experience and knowledge of practical politics. He gained his administrative experience in an unusually rapid advance at Bell & Howell from sales trainee in 1938 to president in 1949. His knowledge of practical poli- CHARLES H.

In both cases,'he said, his job was to pull together divergent viewpoints by emphasizing areas of agreement rather than specific disputes. Percy allied his candidacy with "the emergence of new Republican candidates with fresh ideas and energetic methods." He listed state Treasurer William Spott, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Ray Page and Cook County Sheriff Richard Ogilvie.
