The city has received numerous requests for installation of lights in the middle of blocks but so far has been reluctant to grant any. Speaking on Monday's request to install a light east of 1142 East South St., Aid. Homer Zumwalt (6th) said if the council approved it, then other requests for similar installations in mid-blocks should also be approved. "This could amount to about 500 new. lights, and we will be leading the city into a financial mess," he said.

Donald Nelson (4th) the City Council agreed to have Herring conduct a study on which streets need increased illumination most. Priority will be given to those streets when and if funds can be secured for the purpose. In other business the council approved requests for loading zones in downtown areas and removed two-hour parking zones in the 600 and 700 block of West Main Street.

Galesburg Register-Moil, Gqfesburq, IK, Tuesday, Aug, 6. 1963 3L Imagination OfPupih h Aided by Toys One of the objectives of Sunny* side School for retarded children has been given a boost recently by a contribution of toys from the Civic Welfare Committee of the Welcome Wagon organization, an announcement from the school said today. The objective is to foster mental activity by the retarded children, and the toys do this by causing imagination — such as pretending to have-tea parties, using a toy tea set. Several other toys were also included in the Welcome Wagon bestowal, including wheel vehicles and additional kinds. The Civic Welfare Committee used a trading stamp collection project to obtain the toys. The accompanying photo shows Joyce Anderson and Johnny Coughlin, of the trainable primary class, pretending a tea party with the little set received from Welcome Wagon, which is an organization that welcomes newly arrived residents of Galesburg. Sunnyside School is operated by the Galesburg Council for the Mentally Retarded, at 175 S. Cedar St., in a building that formerly housed the Galesburg High School home economics department. Have You Heard That Mrs. Betty Day, 755 N. Cedar St., has returned home after spending her vacation in Mesa, Ariz., with Mrs. Donna Greenstreet and son Richard, and Mr. and Mrs. Millard Holder, former Galesburg residents.
