2 Goiesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, 111, Monday, Aug. 19, 1963 Fanning I on Man Killed in Collision Near Yates City A two -car collision Saturday about 9:50 p.m., on 111. 8 approximately one mile west of Yates City, resulted in Knox County's second traffic fatality in two successive days and the 17th so far this year, compared with 11 for all of 1962. Victim of Saturday night's crash was Winfred W. Eaton, 50, of Farmington, who was pronounced dead on arrival at Cottage Hospital at 9:48 p.m. Douglas Driver Injured Driver of the other car was Wisconsin Synod Quits Missouri Tie Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod last week became the second church body to withdraw from the Evangelical Lutheran Synodical Conference of North America. At its 37th biennial convention in Milwaukee, the Wisconsin Synod voted 138-28 to withdraw from the 91-year-old Synodical Conference. They followed the Evangelical Lutheran Norwegian Synod which recently severed ties with the conference. Two church bodies now remain affiliated in the organization, the 2.6-million Missouri Synod and the 20,000-member Evangelical Lutheran Slovak Churches. The Wisconsin Synod convention adopted the withdrawal resolution "in solemn protest against the departure of the Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod from the historical doctrinal position in the conference." Both church bodies were charter members in the conference which was organized in 1872 and is the oldest grouping of conservative Lutherans in• the U nited States. The withdrawing synod noted that it had "lodged many admonitions and protests with the conference during the past 20 years to keep that body from the path that leads to liberalism in doctrine- and practice." The Wisconsin Synod maintains that there' can be no religious fellowship or 'joint church work with other church bodies unless full doctrinal agreement has been reached. The group charged that the Missouri Synod leadership has for a number of years engaged in joint devotions, prayer and church work with leaders of Lutheran bodies not in full doctrinal agreement. Wilfred B. Goodwin, 40, of near Douglas, who today was reported in good condition in Cottage Hospital. He was reported to have received a wrist injury, lacerations and bruises. The Eaton car, traveling toward Yates City, apparently left the roadway before entering the curve at the approach to the Burlington Railroad underpass, according to a report by Trooper Stanley Hor ton, investigating officer. The vehicle then slid around the curve on gravel at the side of the highway and when it returned to the pavement it traveled across the road into the path of the Goodwin car, which was headed toward Maquon, the report stated. It was indicated by the trooper that the broadside crash took place in the westbound lane, in which Goodwin was traveling. Inquest to Be Held An autopsy performed on Eaton's body was reported to have shown that his injuries included ruptured aorta and liver and rib fractures. Dr. Jackson K. Erffmeyer, Knox County coroner, who was at the hospital Saturday night, impaneled members of a coroner's jury Sunday afternoon at the Hinchliif and Pearson Funeral Home. An inquest will be conducted later he stated. Services Tuesday Funeral services for Winfred W. Eaton will be conducted Tues Two Ticketed In Weekend Car Collisions Three traffic accidents oc curred in Galesburg during the weekend, according to records at the police department.

Boughton, 26, of 793 E. Main St. and Audrey B. Watters, 37, of 956 Yates St. Avert Suicide at Monmouth MONMOUTH - The fear of being returned to a state hospital was the apparent reason Leon Haynes Jr., 34, of 1006 S. Fifth St., threatened to Jump from a grain-pipe' conveyor on South Third Street Sunday afternoon. About 1:45 p.m. police were notified by Haynes' mother he was drunk and breaking bottles and threatening bodily harm to another man with a portion of the bottle. Police officer Omar G a s k i 11 went to the scene seeking Haynes and at 2:20 p.m., Jack Glenn, Warren County deputy, was also notified to assist Gaskill. Haynes ran into the abandoned No. 1 pottery yard and hid in the weeds. The officers continued their search and employes of the Ralph Wells & Co. plant discovered the man climbing on the pipe, which runs between the Wells plant and the Wells elevator, about 50 feet above the street. Robert Stevens, Warren County deputy sheriff, and Gary Gawthrop, assistant fire chief, climbed onto the roof of the Wells plant, and talked with Haynes for about a half-hour, finally convincing him to come down. After his descent, Haynes was taken into custody and placed in the city jail. Leon Haynes Sr. said this morning the younger Haynes, who has been in a number of state institutions by his own admission due to a drinking problem, had apparently felt he was to be returned. This morning Haynes was sentenced to seven days in the county jail and charged $10.30 court costs on a disorderly conduct charge. r 7%e *pe 'Shop of Top Selection" 128 N.

Case Heard By Judge in County Court Probation for one year was granted Ed Williams, 72, of 459 Harding St., who this morning withdrew an earlier plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated assault. He was ordered to pay costs and given credit toward the costs for time he spent in the county jail. A fine of $50, plus costs was assessed against Emory Gene Mackey, 19, of 1374 Monmouth Blvd., who changed from not guilty to guilty his plea on a Dram Shop Act violation, involving the illegal purchase as a minor of three half-pints of whiskey.

Evenings by Appointment Contempt Writ Issued For Stickell A writ for arrest of Lawrence Stickell, former Galesburg attorney, was issued today by Judge Daniel J. Roberts in Knox County Court on a rule for Stickell to show cause why he should not be held in contempt for his failure to answer the citation for his removal as executor by First Christian Church of Monmouth. The docket entry on the writ came after the appearance in court of David Anderson of Waukegan, StickelPs attorney, with Stickell not appearing as had been scheduled. Anderson turned over to the court securities in the Clara Beacham Swanson estate of which Stickell is executor, and which were in a safety deposit box, for which Anderson had the keys. These securities including one $5,000 government bond, which are to be inventoried and listed in the office of the county clerk, represented estate assets over and above the $93,000-plus balance, which the executor showed in his most recent report. Says Lawyer Arrested The attorney told the court that he contacted Stickell early last Thursday morning in Omaha, Neb., and told him that he had been advised the FBI had a warrant for his arrest, issued in federal court in Denver, Colo. The attorney said he informed the FBI that Stickell would surrender. Stickell, it was related, arrived Thursday at 6:15 a.m. at O'Hare Field, Chicago, where he met him. From the airport, Anderson said, they went to the FBI and from there to the Commissioner of U.S. Courts, where Stickell was released on his own recognizance as a hearing on the federal charge was continued to today at 2 p.m. Anderson, who said he had informed Stickell of the court appearance here today, told the judge he returned Stickell to the airport, but did hot know his destination as he boarded a United Air Lines plane. "If Stickell appears in Chicago, and I don't know whether he will or not, I'll bring him down here," Anderson said. If he did not appear in Chicago, the attorney remarked that he was sure he would be apprehended and he asked for a continuance of the proceedings here. Now in Hospital He has not seen Stickell since Thursday, the attorney said, but received information indirectly last midnight that Stickell is in a hospital, location of which appeared not to have been included in the information. In connection with Thursday's federal action, Don Joyce, prosecuting attorney, said that the charge was that Stickell "caused to be transported in interstate commerce checks which were obtained by fraud." This is the count on which a hearing was scheduled this afternoon before C. S. Bentley Pike, U.S. commissioner. Also Thursday, the FBI office in Chicago reported that the wording of the charge on the warrant which was to be received from Denver, was "interstate transportation of stolen property consisting of two cashier's checks totaling $93,000, issued by the Byers State Bank, Byers, Colo., which theretofore he knew had been taken and converted by fraud." A week ago today, in county Airport Job Near Finish Completion of a $195,000 project at Galesburg Airport is slated for Sept. 15, Joe Watson, acting director of city public works, said today. Work on the project start ed in May and by Sept. I about 228,000 cubic yards of earth is expected to be moved to fill the runway addition, he said. The new addition dipped 30 feet below the main airport's level. Drainage construction was completed last fall and Watson said he expected landscaping to be Swim Pool Planners Set Session Proceeding with plans to construct a municipal swimming pool, Galesburg Jaycees have formed an Action Committee to formulate plans for the project. The committee will meet Thursday at City Hall at 7:30 p.m. Chairman Ray Ritz said the group will initially consider location, design and finance. Action Committee members appointed were Thomas Herring, Donald Peterson, Jim Swanson, Jack Andren, Russell Johnson, Donald Stoffel, Fred Pacey, Robert Cabeen, John Zakarian, Rev. Jesse Cotton, George Warren, Richard Welty and M. A. Ashbaugh. Jaycees decided at an annual fish fry Thursday to launch an all-out campaign to get a municipal swimming pool in Galesburg. They cited a community survey conducted three years ago which listed such a facility as one of the major needs in the city. Also cited was a recent report from the State Public Health Department which tagged Lake Storey as an undesirable place for swimming, because of an excessive amount of pollutional bacteria.

Strike in Chicago Idles Auto Plants CHICAGO (UPD— An emergency meeting was scheduled today between the Ford Motor Co. and the United Auto Workers Union in an effort to settle a violence-marred strike at a key suburban stamping plant which has forced the layoffs of 10,000 production workers. The negotiations, first since last Thursday, were scheduled for a neutral site here, a Ford spokesman said. The meeting came too late to halt the reduction of operations in six Ford plants, four of them in the Detroit area, at midnight Sunday night, forcing the workers off their jobs. Laid off were 7,000 production workers in plants in Dearborn, Ypsilanti, Rawsonville, and Livonia, Mich. Another 3,000 were idled at Sharonville and Sandusky, Ohio. Violence erupted on the picket lines Sunday night when two union pickets were beaten in a fist fight at the Chicago Heights stamping plant. Cook County sheriff's police said two men emerged from a car and started the fight. Police iden­ tified the injured pickets as Earl Sexton, Harvey, 111., and Royce Bullock, Kankakee, 111. Police said an auto was damaged during the fight. The two pickets were treated for cuts and bruises, police said, but were not injured seriously. The strike has caused a severe parts shortage, Ford spokesman said, and could cripple a large part of the company's operations around the United States. The strike, the second one in two months at the Chicago plant, was called last Friday over alleged "unsafe working condition" in the plant. "LOOK" to the Give-A-Gift WEBERS 149 E. Main St. for Fin* Dinnerwore $1 Down - $1 Week completed by Labor Day. Financed jointly by the federal, state and local governments, the project includes extension of the east-west runway from 3,000 to 3,600 feet, a parallel taxi strip, grading, base construction, lighting and turfing. Galesburg's share in the project is approximately $38,000, none of it coming from tax money, according to city officials. New Project Meanwhile plans are being made for raising the city's share of a $236,000 improvement project at the airport slated for next year, Last week the Federal Aviation Agency approved a $103,250 grant to be used for the project. The grat covers about 50 per cent of the total cost. Balance will be raised from state and municipal governments. Principal project in next year's improvement will be the extension of the north-south runway by 700 feet to make the airport suitable for commercial turbo­ jet plane landings. The present 3,800-foot runway is too short to meet federal safety minimums for the type of aircraft. City officials have announced earlier that they hope to produce their share of the cost (about one-fourth of the total cost) by selling 9 l A acres of the north edge of the airport to the state for a projected improvement of U.S. 34. Other Grants Listed Along with the grant to Galesburg, the Federal Aviation Agency also announced similar grants to 26 Illinois airports for improvements totaling $2.4 million. The grants were included in the $75.9 million awarded by the agency to 452 airports across the country. Illinois grants included Alton $42,400, Carbondale-Murphysboro $119,000, Aurora $97,000, Chicago O'Hare $272,350, Danville $178,200; Kankakee $108,005, Mount Vernon $107,265, Peoria $87,500, Springield $20,000, Sterling-Rock Falls, $109,150. Member Units Pressure NFO For Boycott CORNING, Iowa (AP) - The headquarters of the National Farmers Organization (NFO) was sitting tight today in the wake of efforts of some members to launch another holding action to withhold livestock from market. National President Oren Staley said the NFO board of directors has been under pressure by units of the organization to boycott the market supply centers in an effort to boost producer prices. But contrary to reports that the withdrawing of livestock would start midnight Sunday in 19 states the directors have not called for such a move, Staley said. "The directors are under call to meet at any time when it is deemed advisable," he said. "If the board finds that there is enough sentiment among the members to start a holding action the directors probably will go along. If that time comes milk will be included." Cites Local Activity Staley said there has been considerable local activity in NFO rarks. At Highland, 111., Ray Iberg, assistant organizer in two Illinois counties, said Sunday night that NFO would begin withdrawing livestock at midnight over a 19- state area "to brinE! processors to the bargaining table." Staley said this might be the result of some local action but was not on authorization of the national board. Another reported local action occurred in Southern Minnesota Sunday night. A couple of cars with NFO signs appeared at the Hormel plant in Austin and the Wilson Co. plant in Albert Lea. Eyes Expansion Iberg, organizer for Madison and St. Clair counties, said the NFO might expand the boycott to milk products. "We have the negotiators ready to sign contracts," Iberg said. "Under the contracts, we would know a year in advance the price we would receive. We feel we'r entitled to a fair and reasonable price for our products," he said. The NFO program, has built-in controls to curb overproduction, he said. In the proposed contracts (Continued on page 19) NFO Chapters Await Orders For Action "No official word" to call a holding action has been received by local chapters of the National Farmers Organization. This was the comment of NFO chairmen in Knox and Warren counties. Ivan Anderson, Knox County chairman, who lives south of Woodhull, said he thought the brief holding actions today at several Midwestern stockyards were "spur of the moment" actions by unit members, including East St. Louis. Stewart Morris of near Berwick, Warren County, figured members were "getting a little anxious," he said. "We do know eventually we will have one." Announce Election Election of officers in the 19th Congressional District of the NFO will take place Aug. 24 at the Alexis Legion Hall, Morris announced today. The seven counties making up the district are Knox, Warren, Mercer, Henry, Fulton, Henderson and Rock Island. Present officers are James Milligan of Smithshire, president; R. C. Homer of Avon, vice president; Loretta Roberts of Avon, treasurer; Theresa Bybee of Galesburg Route 1, secretary. Trustees are Donald Gabriel of Geneseo, three years; Russell Bolin of Woodhull, two years, and Ora Reuter of Avon, one year. One trustee is to be elected. Warren County will be represented by 17 voting delegates Morris reported. Two-thirds of the secret ballot will determine the election. Boy Injures Finger in Laundry Mishap Benjamin Wright, son of Mrs. Sara Wright, 139 Indiana Ave., was injured slightly when he caught his finger in a door at Anderson Cleaners, 1626 Grand Ave., Saturday afternoon. The fire department was called to release the boy's finger. The Wright boy was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, where he was treated and released. The department made another call Saturday evening at 10 to the home of Mrs. George Lofgren, 1122 N. Prairie St., where a short in a TV set caused a fire. Damage to the set was estimated by fire authorities to be $75. Gale Request Is Denied in NLRB Rulin g A communique received last week by Gale Products from the National Labor Relations Board officially denied a petition by the company for modification of an order issued earlier by the board. The board ruled earlier that the company would haVe to post a notice to employes informing them that it would not interfere with their efforts to organize a independent union. The ruling stemmed from an argument involving Gale, the International Association of Machinists, and an independent group which disaffiliated from the IAM. The group attempted to disaffiliate in March of this year, but the NLRB refused to grant the group the right to disaffiliate. Legally speaking, therefore, the group has not disaffiliated at this time. Regarded As Helpful Individuals involved in the original movement to disaffiliate feel confident that the recent ruling of NLRB will help to further their chances for securing an election and a contract in the near future. They hope to start their movement again if the NLRB recognizes their right to disaffiliate. A movement would probably be started on Oct. 20, which is 90 days before the original contract between the IAM and the company would have expired. The IAM's contract with Gale was recently renewed until Jan. 1965, but the individuals who wish to disaffiliate are acting under the supposition that the extension of the contract does not keep them from acting on the basis of the original expiration date, which would have been January 1964. The National Labor Relations Board ruled in June of this year that the company had employed unfair labor practices. Cite Two Paragraphs The subsequent appeal by Gale was based on two paragraphs in the order from the NLRB: "We will not in any manner interfere with, restrain, "or 1 coerce our employes in the exercise of their right of self organization; to form, join or assist any labor organization; to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing; to engage in concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection; or to refrain from any or all such activities except to the extent that such rights may be affected by an agreement requiring membership in a labor organization as a condition of employment ..." "We will remove from their personnel file and destroy all final notice warnings issued to employ­ es on or about May 9, 1962, which were issued for soliciting membership on company property."
