Circus Acrobat Falls During Act NEW YORK (UPI) - A circus acrobat billed as "The Great Atlas" fell approximately 55 feet from near the ceiling of Madison Square Garden Tuesday night when a rope used in his act malfunctioned. The performer with the Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus was not seriously injured. Atlas' act called for him to fall from a platform but to stop short of hitting the ground by a rope tied to his wrist. The act apparently worked well enough to break the fall and keep Atlas from being seriously injured. \Scott Say* t I) - Afc toMrMwin opinion sayMf tM'WHypeing Board bis no 14pl 'nptio issue free rice track PMIM« Such pimt have long been given gratis to politicians, gov* ernment officials and otherf. Scott's opinion, in effect, OOl* laws the free pass practice. The opinion was sought by Anthorty Scariano, chairman of the Racing Board. Scott cited extensive case law, including an Illinois Supreme Court ruling, in reaching his conclusion. "Although the Illinois Racing Board possesses extensive control over the manner in which races are conducted," Scott said, "it lacks specific statutory authorization to issue free passes. "While board members or their representatives are entitled to free access to rasetracks to insure compliance With the rules and regulations of the board," Scott said, "this cannot be construed as a grant of authority to issue free passes. "Since the 111 i n o i s Racing Board, as an administrative body, has only the authority expressly conferred upon it by the statute creating it, it is my opinion that the Illinois Racing Board is without authority to issue free passes to the various tracks located in Illinois." Schisler Favors Tax Relief Plan Defeated by GOP SPRINGFIELD - Rep. Gale Schisler, D-Loridon Mills, says he supports a food and drug tax relief plan even though it was defeated by Republicans in the Illinois House. 'The bill, which represents the tax relief plan Gov. Dan Walker outlined in his budget message, would have cut a fam ily of four's state income tax bill by $35 per year," Schisler said. . "The bill would have granted an additional $350 exemption from the income tax for every man, Woman and child in Illinois," Schisler said. "The tax savings would have represented a substantial portion of the sales tax a family has to pay on food and drugs." The legislation received 87 votes, almost all cast by Demor cratic House members. It failed by two votes. OEP Will Open Flood Relief Center in Chester SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The Office of Emergency Preparedness will open a flood relief center in Chester this weekend, federal coordinating officer Robert E.

Costa Kindergarten Seen If Parents Indicate Need The Catholic Board of Education Tuesday night committed itself to adding a kindergarten to Costa Catholic School if enough parents indicate it is needed. A group of primary grade teachers and representatives of the Costa Community Assn. met with the board to discuss the possibility. The school now includes Grades 1-9 and has an enrollment of 600. The board voted to conduct a survey among parents of prospective and first-grade students to determine whether addition of a kindergarten would encourage attendance at the school. The board agreed that if enough parents respond favorably, the kindergarten class will be added. A financial report to the board showed the school is operating in the black as its first full year of operation draws to a close. A fund of seme $3,000 remains on hand to start next year's operation. The board voted to send a letter to the Most Rev. Edward O'Rourke, bishop of the Peoria Diocese, detailing use of the $14,875 given to start the school last year. The letter states that some $7,000 remains in the fund given by Bishop O'Rourke. Of the money spent, only $100 went for labor on any project readying the school for occupancy. The rest of the work was donated by members of the three Catholic parishes. The board accepted the resignation of Sister Lois Ann Stoiger, who has accepted a position as the only sister on the faculty of a Lockport school. Sister Joyce, Costa principal, said that while some contracts remain to be signed, most faculty positions for next year are filled. The board was told that graduation for the school will be May 30. A board spokesman said that a committee is trying to arrange for # Mass to be concelebrated by pastors of the thxea Catholic parishes as part of the graduation exercises. The graduation -will be the first for the school which was formed when members of the three parishes voted to consolidate the former Immaculate Heart oi Mary School and St. Joseph's Academy. Dtbra L.

T titer the men nor any drug ly were not following instruc*]w#i *Mnd In either of the COLLINSV1LLB, 111. tVP!)- Local authorities today were preparing for a Madison Coun ty grand jury investigation into at least one of two mistaken drug raids carried out by narcotics agents at private homes here last week. In Washington Myles J. Ambrose, chief of federal drug law enforcement, said Tuesday a federal grand jury investigation into the matter had been ordered. Ambrose, a special assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department's office for drug abuse law enforcement, said of the incidents, "it would appear to be stupidity, They (the raiding agents) clear tions. Mr. and Mrs. Donald Askew said a shotgun-carrying agent broke down the back door of their home the night of April 23 and was followed by other agents who stormed into their home. The Askews subsequently filed suit against the federal government, asking $100,000 in damages. Yanked from Bed An attorney representing Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Giglotto said early this week that he was preparing a similar suit. Giglotto said about 15 armed men in hippie garb broke into his apartment and, shouting obscenities, yanked him and his wife from bed and ransacked their home. Giglotto said one raider held a cocked gun at his head and threatened to kill him. Local authorities said the Askew raid would be brought to the attention of a Madison County grand jury Thursday. Meanwhile, Ambrose said the four federal agents involved had been suspended with pay until the completion of the investiga tion, and recommended that 10 local police officers and one Illinois Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent be relieved of further drug enforcement duties while the inquiry is in progress. Giglotto sent a telegram to President Nixon, asking him personally to investigate the raids in the interests of "justice and the rights of private citizens." Percy is "Shocked" Sen.

Gail Owens, and a social worker, Julia Whittaker, entered the school in futile attempts to negotiate with the two remaining gunmen. The decision to surrender was made after Blakes' brother was allowed inside. The surrender was made and frightened hostage children were released into the arms of weeping parents. One child was treated at St. Francis Hospital for an epileptic seizure and three others were taken there for observation. Walker to Scrap Segments Qf Supplemental Freeways (Continued From Page 3) mending freeway construction, have introduced bills calling for freeways which the DOT says would cost nearly $i billion. Administration sources told UPI that Walker made the basic decision on the freeway system som* time ago, and that the DOT since has been working to put. those decisions into a comprehensive plan. The program announced today, the sources said, was developed by the DOT under the Walker parameters. The governor, even before he froze the freeway program, had struction of the freeway sys-' made " cle ."" £ e . waS ^ t em 3 * Iconcerned With the two - lane state's eastern border; a freeway running north-south from the Quad Cities to the St. Louis area near the Mississippi River; major portions of the Southern Illinois freeway from St. Louis through Carbondale and to the Indiana border;' and the portion of the U.S. 51 corridor running from Bloomington south to Interstate 57. To build the whole program, Walker said, would cost $5 billion. Today's announcement ended a three-month freeze on con- Walker quietly halted bidding on freeway projects early last February — a move reported exclusively at that time by UPI. Aides said the governor "wanted to see the whole thing" before deciding which segments of the system would be approved and which would be scrapped roads most often used by Illinois residents than with freeways. Walker often has said he will give financial preference to roads used "by the housewife going to market and the child going to school in a school bus." He also is fond of quot- iing a farmer who told him it bids been let in,*, *\ to traVe ] t ? mi " ut f along bumpy, rutted roads to reach a freeway where one may travel 70 miles an hour for is minutes to reach a destination.
