To ley MOtTUAtY 1«»«d SI. 342-1913 TVA Officials Need Snake Repellent KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is collecting a few nonpoisonous snakes in efforts to learn what lures a snake into high volatge electrical equipment. Earl Taylor, chief of Transmission Service System, said a power substation at Columbia, Tenn., has had repeated power failures because of chicken snakes wiggling into the insulators. TVA workers got rid of all the birds' nests and spiders' nests at the substation, but the chicken snakes kept coming. A few engineers have speculated that maybe the "oscillatory vibration of the power frequencies" holds some fatal charm for the snakes. The latest move was the spreading of about 100 pounds of chemical supposed to repeal snakes around the station. Taylor wants to collect a few snakes to find out how repulsive the repellent is. If the repellent doesn't work, TVA engineers are ready to try an adaptation of the standard livestock fence charger set close enough to the ground to catch the skinniest snake. ber's backing of the project and the church's opposition to it, Ca- bcen said he would still be in favor of the elders' decision. "Of course I can't make up my mind on granting a license until such an application is made first. Also there is other information that has to be brought forward before I can decide finally," he said. Such information would include who the owners of the motel are and what national chain it will affiliate with, the mayor explained. "We do not want to approve such a project and then see it fold up soon after," he warned. Peck Sole Owner Meanwhile Peck emphasized that he would be the only owner of the proposed $l-million motel which would include quarters for the Galesburg Club. A few businessmen from the Quad-Cities have agreed to supply him with a loan if the need arises, Peck said. There are no plans at present to issue stock for the motel and all that would be needed is a loan he added. Peck said that he personally has secured the signatures of some 450 persons on the petition which urges "that every cooperation be given to enable this project to be completed, includ' ing a favorable consideration for a liquor license." In conjunction with the petition, the chamber board sent a letter to Cabeen backing Peck's project. Both the church and the chamber said they were not taking issue with the motel construction but that they were registering their respective views on the project. Peck said he could not disclose names of persons who have offered to lend him money because he does not know who they are yet. His attorney, Sam Skafidas of East Moline, is making the loan arrangements, he said However, he would try to get the names and present them to the mayor when Skafidas returns from a trip to Pennsylvania, Peck said. Receives Local Help He pointed out that a number of local businessmen have offered to help him in his efforts to obtain a liquor license and make possible "the greatest single project to take place in downtown Galesburg in more than a decade." Some of the signers of the petitions, Peck said, are members of the Presbyterian church. Peck said he would start construction of the motel as soon as the mayor grants him a liquor license. The motel would also contain banquet rooms, swimming pool and a restaurant and coffee shop. No final decision has been made as to which national- chain franchise the owner would select. Before applying for a license, however, Peck has to secure the consent of the owners of two- thirds of the frontage feet along the streets adjacent to the proposed motel and for a distance of 2u6 feet on both sides. This is specified in the city liquor ordinance. Consent of a majority of property owners near the Galesburg Club was secured verbally about a month ago, Peck said, and he was trying to get it in written form this afternoon. Neighboring property owners include the Pres byterian Church, which is across the street from the club. Guilty Plea Entered in County Court Request for probation was made this morning in Knox County Court by Ronald Lester Feuer, 37, of 778 E. Fourth St., following h:. plea of guilty to charges of theft, under $150, and adultery. His request was referred by Judge Daniel J. Roberts to Sheriff E. Jones for investigation and report. The theft car involved alleged that he exerted unauthorized control over a credit card issued to another person by a gasoline company. The adultery charge developed after it was alleged that he was living in Galesburg with a v/oman whom he had met in New York State and with whom he had traveled to California, back to New York, and then to Galesburg where they have resided the past three or four weeks. Police information was that the woman said Feuer ran over her with his car in the driveway of ttheir residence, but Feuer told authorities he pushed her as she was trying to strike the car with a flatiron and that the car did not run over her. She was released Tuesday evening from St. Mary's Hospital. Both are married and Feuer was said to have a wife and children in New York. The credit card, which Feuer was said to have used for purchases during some of his travels, was taken by him from a car at a filling station where he was employed in New York, according to police. Charged with driving under revocation, Henry Allen Jr., 30, of 1073 W. Brooks St., was sentenced to seven days in the county jail. The case against Edward Lee Johnson, 27, of 106 S. Jackson St., Knoxville, charged with driving while his license was suspended, was continued to Aug. 7, and he was released on $1,000 bond. A not guilty plea to a charge of driving while intoxicated was entered by Amos O. Sopher, 50, of rural Knoxville and his case was continued for trial in October. Following a recommendation by Sheriff Jones that probation be denied, Robert Richard Key, 30, of Stronghurst was sentenced to concurrent terms of six months each at the state farm on charges of non-support and deception, with the latter involving two alleged worthless chacks for $25 each.

East played the nine and queen of diamonds so South ruffed the third diamond with the queen oi hearts. When East could not over ruff, South led a trump to her ace and dropped West's singleton king. Was anything wrong with her play? Yes there was, according to Al. He points out that after East dropped the queen of diamonds South should have played the ace of hearts in order to pick up a singleton king in either hand. Another expert asked Al, "Sup pose East held three diamonds plus the king and one heart and had dropped the queen of dia monds in order to coax South into laying down the ace of trumps?" Al replied, "Not this East! That play is for experts only and not for many of them." 1,500 Protest [ Negro Move In White Area CHICAGO (UPD-Extra police kept watch today on an old all- white neighborhood on the South Side where hundreds of persons have demonstrated the past two nights against a new Negro fam- iiy.
