(Galcsburg Register-Mail photo by Phil Turney) * Percy Plugs New Industry For Illinois CHICAGO (UPI) - Charles H. Percy, Republican candidate for gdvernor, outlined his "payrolls instead of welfare rolls" plan Thursday and said he would "go out and get" new industry himself. . Percy told the Young Republicans of Cook County he is a middle-of-the-road Republican and asked his listeners to start programs to attract minority group support. He tied together his plan for more jobs with attraction of new industry. "We haven't found any small cities in the state that are doing more than just maintaining their population," he said. "Employment is declining in Illinois and we Republicans can do something about it." To get new industry into the state, he said, Illinois must first establish the "right climate" then "I will go out and get it myself." Percy said the GOP "must be wary of extremists, both on the right and the left." The VIRGINIAN 130 E. MAIN, Across from O.T.'s OPENING SPECIALS New Beautiful Fabrics 1.98 Custom Made A Aft FREE— Yd.

Mom says its all right if you give me one. Please write me a letter df you are or not going to let me take care of a caboose. P.S. I live right by the railroad.
