Robert Blair R-Park Forest, said today he will try again to push a campaign spending disclosure bill through the General.Assembly. An earlier bill. House Bill 1, sponsored by Blair and Rep. Philip Collins, R-Calumet City, was defeated in the House before the Easter recess. Blair blamed that defeat on a provision limiting the amount of money a candidate could spend on his campaign. He said that provision has beenelimi nated from the new bill. "As you will recall," Blair told a news conference, "when House Bill 1 was considered for final passage a few weeks ago, member after member rose to explain his vote.

But the outbursts of the environmentahsts and their well-financed campaigns have blocked such construction because of "pollution'* or fear of radtoactivity or the fact that this or that stretch of land or riverbank will be unsightly. Dams for the creation of hydroelectric power have n'.>t been built because, we are told, America needs more parkland or because they will disturb the ecology. The ecology argument is, of course, ridiculous. Man has disturbed It-but so does nature, and far more disastrously. Even before man was on the scene, whole species of living creatures were wiped out by natural selection or natural cataclysm. Man may have decimated the sperm whale, but he had nothing to do with the passing of the dinosaur and other prehistoric animals. A smokestack may put grit on your tablecloth, but one volcano in eruption does more harm in a few days than your local generating plant does in years. The catalogue of environmentalist oncern can go on indefinitely. What the propaganda tells us is that the environmentalists are saving our countryside, are doing away with pollution of air and water. But what they really propose is to turn back the clock and return the world to primitivlsm. Society cannot exist without energy. If there is a shortage of gasoline, even an agricultural economy cannot survive — and the tractors, reapers, and combines will rust in the fields. As a matter of fact, many environmentalists boast that they want to return the United States to a handicraft economy, to shut down our cities, to go back to the spinning wheel. If this is what the people of America desire, so be it. But I see no lines of people turning in their cars, their electrical appliances. They forget that they i can't have it both ways. So just ipray that your air-conditioner has eiwugh power to work when ithe hot weather hits. Bifths Bom at Cottaga Hoipttil toi Mr. and Mrs. Phillip M.

The couple formerly lived at 889 Harrison St., Galesburg^ felt that it was improper to limit the amount of money one can spend. "No one single, solitary in dividual, as I recall, rose on that day to say he was against the disclosure of the sources of one's campaign contributions." Collins said the deletion of the spending limitation is the only change from House Bill 1. The new measure, like the old one, requires that candidates and political committees 1(eep detailed records of their incomes and expenditures, requires committees handling $1,000 or more to register with the state, prohibits contributions by one person in another's name Marriage Licenses KNOX OaUMTY ^ Miss Judith K.

Cooke Series Finishes With Current Look (Coiitinued From Page 6) itself: A love of show and luxury; a widening gap between the very rich and the very poor; the exercise of military might in places remote from the centers of power; an obsession with sex; freakish* ness in the arts masqueradhig as originality, and enthusiasm pretending to creativeness; and a general desire to live off the state, whether it's a junkie on welfare or a government- subsidized airline. "In a word, the idea that Washington — big daddy — will provide. "Yet I have tried to show that the original institutions of this country still have great vitality. Much of the turmoil here springs from the energy of people who are trying to apply those institutions to forgotten minorities. "Now, as for our rage to believe that we've found the secret of liberty in general permissiveness from the cradle on, I can only recall the saying of a wise Frenchman, 'liberty is the luxury of self-discipline.' And historically those people who did not discipline themselves had it thrust on them from the outside. "That's why the uaual cycle of great nations has been, first: A powerful tyranny broken by revolt; the introduction of liberty; the abuse of liberty, and back to tyranny again." Speaking, in the May 8 broadcast, in the study of his New York City apartment, Cooke says: "As I see it in this country, a land of the most persistent idealism and blandest cynicism, the race is on between its decadence and its vitality." Hard to BeUave As for "the woes that we share with the world that you can see from your window" matters such as overpopulation and pollution—Cooke says he "finds it Impossible to believe" that a nation that has produced a wide variety of ingenious human beings is going to "sit back and let the worst happen.

Levee workers were fighting a losing battle and only a few trailer owners remained behind to chance the floods. One mobile homeowner worked nine hours to raise his trailer six feet with hydraulic jacks and hoped for the best. To the south, the Arkansas River swept over its banks at Little Rock, Ark. The Coast Guard commandeered private boats to ferry 68 persons to higher ground and 250 others were expected to leave the same way it the situation worsens. Above St. Louis, the Mississippi seeped through levees at one point or another almost hourly. The downtown levee at St. Louis was hiundated and water crept up the lawn at the foot of the Gateway Arch. An estimated 3,800 persons remained homeless upriver at Quincy, HI., and farther north near Rock Island, &bout 50 residents of Kelthsburg had to leave their dwellUigs when the Mississippi broke through a levee and water rolled in waist- high in some places. Arkansas Gov. Dale L. Bumpers said flood threatened his state with its worst disaster and worst potential farming losses in history. Army engineers said even with clear skies the river would not roll back to its banVs for a month. Gov. Robert D. Ray of Iowa toured inundated lands near Burlington by helicopter and saw flood damage upstream and downstream which has put an estimated 1,000 persons out of work. "The damage is something you just can't comprtfiend until you see it," Ray said. River waters were four feet deep in an hdustrlal area and an entire railroad freight yard was submerged.
