"Officials of communities, cities and counties that have suffered damage to public property, such as roads, bridges, water or sewer systems, public buildings or utilities, are strongly urged to attend one of the meetings so they can report damgae in their area and obtain information on how to apply for federal assistance," Oshel said. All reports of flood damage are to be made to the nearest Civil Defense Mutual Aid Regional Office. The CD regional offices will also answer any questions in regard to emergency assistance. Civil defense coordinators will be present at the meetings. Robert Connor, federal coordinating officer for the Office of Emergency Preparedness, emphasized that the meetings are for representatives of local and county governments and not for private citizens who have suffered damage. Similar meetings for citizens will be held later this month, he said. The meeting in this area will be held Friday at 1 p.m. at the Rock Island County Office Building, 1504 3rd Ave., Rock Island.

(UPI) - Some > 1,200 Peoria area families will soon begin receiving direct monthly rent subsidies under a new experimental program. The plan, first of its kind in Illinois and one of 24 around the nation, will operate on a 12 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It will be administered by the Illinois Department of Local Government Affairs, which expects to begin interviewing po­ tential rent recipients within the next two weeks. Jerry Stemstein, chief of the local government housing office, said the 1,200 families chosen will each receive direct monthly payments for the next two years to be applied toward rent costs. The average grant is expected to be $59 a month, varying according to income and family size. Stemstein said the program is unusual in that the rent money will be provided directly to the families, who will choose their own apartment or house.

UNIFAX 'Family 9 Air Fares Axed WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Civil Aeronautics Board has ordered the airlines to phase out of existence by the middle of next year two of their longtime travel bargains, youth fares and family fares. Second Homes Out of America's 58.8 million households, 1.7 million householders own a second or vacation home. Persons between the ages of 35 and 64 years account for 71 per cent of those second homes'. The board refused Wednesday to reconsider an earlier deci-'| sion that the fares discriminate against airline passengers who do not qualify for the discounts. Unless the airlines win a court appeal or Congress acts in their behalf, they are under order to start the phaseout this coming June 1 by raising youth standby fares —presently set at 66 per cent of the full fare —to 78 per cent. Youth reservation fares — now 75 per cent of normal fares —will be .raised to 83 per cent while family fares will rise Air Head Tax Also Banned WASHINGTON (UPI) - A bill to ban' airport head taxes — fees charged airline passengers by local governments —was approved by a 286-16 vote in the House Wednesday. The Senate has passed a shghtly different bill and a compromise measure will be negotiated. The taxes range from 50 cents to $3 per passenger. Affected by the legislation are 44 airports or airport authorities. An amendment by Rep. Fred B. Rooney, D-Pa., to allow them until Dec. 31 to phase out their taxes failed on a voice vote before the House approved the bill. New Hampshire began the head tax trend in August, 1969. Most of the other airports adopted it last year. Great Businessmen. • • Great Men To Do Business With! mm Today success is measured not by business accomplishment alone. Civic concern, concern for people and environment, concern for the future as well as the present are modern -measures of success applied to both people and businesses. As a company, Mass Mutual enjoys a reputatiorf that results, from the composite successes of its agents. Their social concern as individuals is an open book to everyone in the community. We believe that occasionally it is appropriate for us. to recognize, as we are here, those individuals: who have achieved distinction not only within our company but in the life insurance business and in their own communities.
