Thursday,lbjj ?63 s State Powers for Commission SPRINGFIELD (UPI)~-Illinois House Speaker John Lewis has announced plans to push for an expanded staff for the state Budgetary Commission, coupled with additional jurisdiction for the already powerful group of legislators. The Marshall Republican, who is not a commission J member,' told United Press Cook Sheriff Spurns Percy Candidacy CHICAGO (UPD-Chicago business executive Charles H. Percy was without the support of two rising party leaders today in his campaign for the Republican nomination for governor. Cook County Sheriff Richard B. Ogilvie said flatly Wednesday that "I'm not going to support Chuck Percy, State Treasurer William J. Scott said it was "too early" to announce his support .or opposi tion for any Republican nominee. Ogilvie and Scott won upset victories in the last election, Since then, they have been looked upon as powers in the GOP, which now is almost shut out of Cook County and state Capitol offices. Percy Disappointed Percy, who was platform chairman at the 1960 Republican National Convention, said he was disappointed that Ogilvie had announced his opposition to him. 1 "I hope it is not final," said Percy, who at 29 became head of Bell & Howell. Ogilvie said he was making his stand made known since "there apparently was a growing implication that I was secretly for him, waiting for a propitious time to make the announcement." Reports circulated that Ogilvie would not support Percy because Percy did not make a strong enough stand against the West Side Bloc during a television interview. Percy also issued a statement Wednesday that he was dedicated to "diniinishing and eradicating" the influence of the bloc in the Republican party, Dr. Redington Is Hospitalized Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Redington, Galesburg Route 3, left today for St. Louis, Mo., to visit his brother, Dr. J. C.. Redington, who is a patient in St. Mary's Hospital there suffering from pneumonia. Dr. and Mrs. Redington, who were on vacation, were visiting their son, Dr. James Redington and daughter, Mrs. Jerome L'Ecuyer and their families who reside in the St. Louis area. Word from St. Louis today indicated that the doctor's condition was slightly improved. International Wednesday that he would recommend that a least two assistants and. an intern be hired to aid Executive Director Francis A. Whitney, who has no assistants. He also said he would make a "quite unpopular" drive to require legislators with special projects- normally pet building projects in their own districts — to submit their requests first to the budget ary group. Barter Basis Now "A total of $97 million was passed by the last Assembly over and above the governor's budget," Lewis said. "They should go through the Budgetary Commis sion. The way it is now, appropri ations are passed on a bartering basis of 'You vote for mine and I'll vote for yours.' " Lewis is considered to be the prime mover in an effort to dump another Republican, Sen. Everett Peters of St. Joseph, from the chairmanship of the group of 10 legislators. A showdown is expected later this month at a meeting of the commission. Rep. W. J. Murphy, R-Antioch, a protege of Lewis and the GOP floor leader in the House, is seeking to take the post away from Peters, who has headed the group since the late 1940s. Democrats apparently were prepared to go along with the Lewis drive and depose Peters in favor of a House member. "If Murphy is elected chair-, man," Lewis said, "I'll work through him. I don't know if these recommendations will be adopted, but I'm going to see that they (the commission) get them." Confers With Experts Lewis announced his plans after a meeting with three persons considered experts on state finance: Legislative Council head William Day, former Legislative Council head Jack Isakoff and state Budget Director Ted Leth. Lewis pointed out that the Budgetary Commission normally screens all formal budget requests just .before the budget is presented to the legislature and has limited activity the rest of the time. "If a legislator wanted more information, he should be able to go to the commission and find what he wants," Lewis said. "I don't even know if they can do that right now. The governor can go to the Finance Department and see how the money is being spent, but the members have no way of knowing." He suggested that with the additional staff members, the commission could send out quarterly reports on state spending "at little cost" and could furnish specific financial data when requested by a lawmaker. He said he felt the additional staff members could be hired within the present appropriation of the commission. "It would start in a small way but would lead to more efficient and economical state government," Lewis said. READ THE WANT ADS!

Miller, 76, 6f Galva died Wednesday afternoon of injuries received in the headon crash Tuesday near Brimfield. Another victim was listed in poor condition at Proctor Hospital in Peoria, where Miller's wife is also under intensive care. Miller, who operated the Farmers Elevator in Galva 42 years, died at 5:40 p.m. All eight persons involved in the collision were hospitalized, and five were showing improve ment, hospital officials said.

Mrs. Lupfer was driving Mr. and Mrs. Miller and his sister Mrs. Harbin to Peoria where they were to meet Millers' daughter, Mrs. Harriet Cozean of Centralia. The accident occurred one- tenth miles east of Brimfield. State troopers said the Lupfer car was traveling east in the westbound lane. Mrs. Shaw steered her westbound auto to the shoulder, lost control and the auto j swerved back onto the pavement and' struck the Lupfer car head on. No charges have been filed, an officer at Peoria State Police Headquarters in Peoria said today, and the investigation is continuing. Horace Payton, Peoria County coroner will hold an inquest when other victims of the crash are able to testify.

City to Pay County for Court Fines Knox County will get its money from the City of Galesburg for fines assessed in Police Magistrate Court since Dec. 1, 1962, sometime in the next seven days. The amount is now being calculated. City Manager Thomas B. Herring said Wednesday the clerk in the court will list the money owed the county and a check and item' ized statement will be issued. This is part of an agreement between the two county and city governing bodies under which they will turn over to each other on a monthly basis fines collected in their courts as a result of arrests made by their respective law enforcement officers. Pact Reached in 1962 For instance, if the sheriff arrests a man for disorderly conduct, and the culprit is fined in police magistrate court, the city will give the money to the county. The agreement is retroactive to Dec. 1, 1962. Yesterday the Knox County Board of Supervisors was assured by State's Atty. Donald Woolsey and County Clerk Samuel Hinchman that the city will get its money sometime this week. Woolsey told the board $5,200 is owed the city by the county. Several board members expressed displeasure that the agreement, reached in late 1962, had not been started months ago. Also included in the accord is a stipulation that the city will pay $6.36 per day for each of its prisoners lodged in the county jail. The sheriff is responsible for billing the city for this amount.

Era Ends at Gale Products Knox College ROTC Unit Wins Rating The Knox Coljege ROTC department has won its fourth consecutive superior rating from the inspector general of the 11th U.S. Army Corps. The annual event entails inspection of administration, supply and proficiency of assigned personnel; The Knox detachment is commanded by Lt. Col. Henry M. Jordan. Car Recovered The Galesburg Police Department has been advised that an auto belonging to James Isaacson of 123 Phillips St., which was stolen here after 10 p. m., June 2, was found abandoned at Rantoul. City Can Develop Old High School City officials were informed this week that they could buy the old high school block of buildings under the Urban Renewal program. Information came in a letter from the Housing and Home Finance Agency to Joseph E. West, executive director of the Knox County Housing Authority. At a meeting with the school board last month, City Council members said they would be interested in acquiring the buildings which would possibly be used for a new city hall and police station. The block, however, is slated for urban renewal, according to provisions set by the federal government. West asked federal authorities whether it would be legal for a school board to sell property to another governing body, namely, the city, instead of to a private individual or concern. He also requested information on whether it would be possible for the city to use the area as a parking lot until funds for constructing a new police station and/or city hall could be raised. Consider All Alternatives Federal officials replied that LOOK! BERMUDA SHORTS In Ivy's Continental and top pockets.

They also told West that all possible re-uses of the property should be studied befpre a final decision is made. Other re-uses considered, so far, include a junior college campus and a senior citizens housing project. West said the county housing authority is at present making studies of different alternatives, Under the Urban Renewal plan, the federal government would pay 75 per cent of the demolition cost if the property is purchased by a prospective developer of the area who submits an acceptable improvement plan. By LEO SULLIVAN A production era which started in 1941 came to an end Wednesday at Gale Products just as plans were being shaped up for a new manufacturing venture. The last outboard motor, approaching the millionth produced here, left the assembly line yesterday. As the end came for manufacture of this product, first of which came off the assembly line in the spring of 1941, plans were in progress to begin production this fall of Lawn-Boy power lawn mowers. Outboard Marine Corp., parent company of Gale Products, announced Monday the transfer of the mower operations to Galesburg from a factory at Lamar, Mo., which will be closed. The change will result in ,150 to 200 or more jobs at Gale, where the personnel total now is slightly more than a thousand, it was stated by Harold L. Bourdon, vice president and general manager. Parts Manufacture Continues As outboard motor production concluded yesterday, Bourdon said the local plant would continue to produce parts for other outboard divisions of OMC in this country, Canada, Belgium and Australia. A new parts depot has Reports Tax Returns Unfiled For 14 Years An investigation disclosed no income tax return was filed by Dr. Frank W. Huff, Galesburg physician, for any year from 1947 through 1960, it was related today by Jay G. Philpott, District Director of Internal Revenue, Springfield. Information on the unfiled tax returns was contained in Philpott's report on action Monday in Federal District Court, Peoria, where the physician was reported to have pleaded guilty to a four- count criminal information charging him with willful failure to file income tax returns for the years 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960. The information charged that the total gross income for these four years was $132,558.21. Judge Frederick O. Mercer assessed a fine, of $1,000 for each of the four years, a total of $4,000, plus court costs. Referring to the investigation by the Intelligence Division of the Internal Revenue Service, which disclosed the 14 non-filing years, Philpott said that, "as to the years prior to 1957, the statute of limitations precludes criminal action, but the taxes and civil penalties relating to those years will be assessed." It was indicated in the earlier information on Monday's action, that the doctor was seeking to make arrangements to take care of the unpaid taxes. been constructed here to serve the entire corporation. In addition to mower produc tion, Gale Products also will take over Lawn-Boy sales, service, engineering and advertising functions, along with sales and service activities for OMC's stern drive engines and Pioneer chain saws. Starting here in 1937, Gale's initial operation was the assembly of refrigeration units manufactured in Waukegan. It became a division of OMC, Jan. 1, 1939, and in the same year, all manu- The Weather Key to Pag* 1 Weather Strip* Brown—Storm Yellow—Fair Red—Warn Blu*—Cold NORTHERN ILLINOIS: Partly cloudy tonight and Friday with chance of scattered thundershowers west half tonight or Friday and most of area Friday or Friday night.

Gale then produced domestic refrigerators, commercial refrigerating units and window room coolers until 1941, when it entered the outboard motor field. Since that time motors were made for the firm's own Buccaneer line as well as for chain stores. 25 Still Working Numbered among the present Gale plant personnel are 25 em­ ployes who were on hand when the first outboard motor was produced here 22 years ago.

Arrests End Wild Rides In Country LEWlSfOWN^Fou* yollthi, In- eluding a Galesburg teenager, were being held in Fulton County jail today In connection With Alleged breakilH and Vandalism near Lewistown extending back to February. James Elam, Fulton County sheriff, said he has filed delinquency charges against Anthony J.

Filker and Frank are cousins, Elam said. Nabbed Wednesday at 1 a. m., the youths have a'l signed statements. Elam said. The sheriff said they were accused of "more vandalism than anything else" and that their arrests "solved quite a few difficulties" in a rural area east of Lewistown, where the Bedwells reside. Eheriff Elam said the youths broke into two homes Tuesday night, made off with gas, chickens and food. Their escapades since February, the sheriff said, include driving recklessly through the countryside, throwing eggs and rocks at homes and cars, kicking in windows and doors in vacant farm houses and shooting off shotguns. In their statements, Elam said, they admitted painting the sides of automobiles owned by two Lewistown teachers, about graduation time, shooting a farmer's dog and wrecking bales of straw. He said the youths carried encased shotguns in their car at the time of their arrest.
