Water Works Pickets Are Disbanded PEORIA, III. (AP)-Seeldng of arrest warrants by Peoria Water Works Co. officials has disbanded pickets who tied up the firm's fleet of maintenance trucks. As the company president, J.B. Murphy, was signing 16 "John and Jane Doe" warrants Wednesday, some 50 pickets were led away by John Gwynn, president of the Peoria branch of the NAACP. The pickets, many of them teenagers, arrived before working hours Wednesday and stretched out on the ground blocking the only two truck exits from Water Works Park—where the vehicles had been parked the night before when pickets kept them from the company garage. The 10 maintenance and service trucks were bottled up in the park all day, although one truck was allowed to leave when the pickets were told it had to make an emergency call. For 10 days pickets have demonstrated against the privately owned firm. They say the company has hiring practices which are discriminatory. The Water Works Co. says it hires any qualified person applying for a job opening. No Negroes are among the nearly 100 persons employed.

Main St. P. *S 4 Kerner Cites Gains During His Tenure SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)-Gov. Otto Kerner said today his administration has pushed forward in areas of civil rights and economic growth despite Republican efforts to "throw stumbling blocks in the way." Kerner told a Governor's Day throng at the Illinois State Pair the creation of a Fair Employment Practices Commission and Board of Economic Development are two major accomplishments of his administration. "We have shaken Illinois loose from the apathy of the past" in civil rights and economic development, Kerner said in an address to a Democratic rally. The governor charged that a "callous group of Republicans" tried to undermine the Fair Employment Practices Commission and the Board of Economic Development by cutting their funds in the 1963 legislature. "While racial unrest seethes in our state and country, this callous caucus (of Republicans) sought to undermine a measure of our efforts at peaceful conciliation of this unrest," Kerner said. The governor said his administration has scored gains in areas of fiscal matters and public aid. For the first time in 10 years, he said, Illinois has adopted a 24- month budget without raising taxes. "What a far cry from the days when Illinois was made to live beyond its means, and those means were being dissipated in a fiscal orgy that still makes one shudder." Bensenville Witnesses Happy Burial BENSENVILLE, 111. (AP)-Susan Anderson buried one of her recent constant companions Wednesday—to the joy of herself and 100 friends and neighbors. Susan, who is eight, arranged the neighborhood party to celebrate the burial of a cast she has worn on her right leg since an operation May 3. The mock funeral represented another big victory in the campaign against illness Susan has waged since birth. She is afflict ed with a muscle deficiency. "They said she wouldn't be able to walk until she was 5, but with determination she learned to walk at 20 months," said her father, Clarence W. Anderson. Susan also managed to learn to swim and ride a bike. The happy cortege was led by a clown and a magician. It led from Sunsan's home to the yard of Mrs. Norene LeVey, a neighbor who suggested the party to Susan soon after the operation. As friends and relatives cheered, the cast was laid to rest in a marked grave beside a flower bed. Livestock Competition Nearing End SPRINGFIELD, 111.
