The DuPage County State's Attorney, William J. Bauer, said Wednesday he will present his case to a grand jury sometime this month, but did not specify what charges would be investigated. Bauer and his assistant were out of the office today, and would not be back until Monday, a secretary said; thus no further information in that quarter was available. Bauer did say Wednesday that he was not finished with his investigation of the situation, but felt he had enough evidence at this point to begin legal action. Federal Case Envisioned Although the United States district attorney's office in Chicago has declined comment on the bank's standing, it has been learned that a separate case is being prepared for presentation to a federal grand jury. Viola­ tion of federal statutes is alleged. A grand jury in Cook County may also enter the picture because of the million dollars worth of collateral that was removed from Crest Finance Co, of Chicago to the Westmont Bank, Norman H. Weaver, who was controlling stockholder in the bank and chairman of the board of directors, said today he has not been notified of any legal action. He said if reports of grand jury action are true, they would probably concern the injunction Crest obtained on the collateral. Lester A. Brock, formerly of Galesburg, had attempted to buy Crest with some backing from the Westmont Bank. Others Involved Lawrence Stickeil, a Galesburg attorney, was also a shareholder in the bank. James B. Wilson, a former official of the National Boulevard Bank of Chicago, was the managing officer and senior vice president. He joined the bank April 5. When the bank was closed in May he said Weaver and Stickeil had asked him to run the bank "to straighten things out, but I guess I'm too late." The other two directors were Arvin Brackman, vice president and cashier, and Fred Hahndorf, a Westmont businessman. Brackman was the only holdover from the old management after the Galesburg men took control of the bank in March. **** A Musical fabU of Broadway STARRING ERNSTEIN reding CATHY EMMA OPTOMETRIST CONTACT LENSES IYES EXAMINED UYING SOUND HEARING AIDS GALESBURG OPTICAL Hour* 9 KM- I© 6 PM* fyidtyt: f *VM. to 9:90 PJi W44iM»9d «r '9 TU M009. era Musk w4Lyr!c$ by FRANK IOISSIK \ JO SWERUNS .*J ABE BURROWS RANDOLPH AVEJtY AT THE mm, wmxm SPECTACUU* 14 Karat whit* $129.50 botb nngs DRAMATIC MHOMD BEAUT* 14 Karat vfaito osyelfcHf %M $92.50 CREDIT JEWELERS 241 I* Main 7 Galesburg, III. 1.
