2 Galesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, 111. Soturdoy, Aug. 24, 1963 Budgetary Commission to Guard State Expenditures New Chairman Sees Mission Tight-Fisted ROUND LAKE, 111. (UPI) Illinois House Republican Leader \V. J. Murphy, R-Antioch, said today his Illinois Budgetary Commission will watch current state spending as well as plan for the future. "We should keep track of the budget as we go along and not wait until we get into a hole," Murphy said. Murphy, serving on the commission for the first time, defeated veteran Chairman Sen. Everett Peters, R-St. Joseph, for the top position on the influential body. Murphy told United Press International by telephone from his real estate and insurance office that it would be impossible to enlarge the commission staff as he had hoped. "I examined the budgetary appropriation with an eye to enlarging our expert staff," he said. "I found that they (the legislature) appropriated only enough to pay expenses, and not enough money to go out and hire anyone else. "We'll have to take the staff we've got and get more out of them," he said. Organize on Sept. 5 The first working session of the commission was scheduled for Sept. 5 at Springfield. Murphy said he would meet with representatives of various organizations Knox College Names Three To Math Staff Three new members of the Knox College faculty have been named to the staff of the mathematics department for the college. Teaching at Knox for the first time will be Dr. Robert E. Bryan of Highland Park, N. J., Donald L. Fisk of East Lansing, Mich., and Edward L. Bethel of Austin, Tex. All three faculty members will assume their new teaching duties in September. Dr. Bryan, who will hold the rank of associate professor of mathematics at Knox, has been serving as an assistant professor at The State University of Rutgers. He has also served there as director of the National Science Foundation Academic Year Institute for secondary school mathematics teachers. A graduate of Washington and Jefferson College, Bryan holds a doctoral degree from Yale University. He has had previous teaching experience at Washington and Jefferson, Bethany College, Pennsylvania Military College, University of Connecticut and Yale. Fisk will serve as assistant professor of mathematics at Knox. He holds both an undergraduate and a Master's degree from Michigan State University, where he is currently completing requirements for a doctorate. He held a National Defense Education Act fellowship at Michigan State. He has been an instructor in statistics there. Bethel will be an instructor in mathematics at Knox. He earned an undergraduate degree at Southern Methodist University and a Master's degree at North Texas State University. He is presently working toward completion of requirements for a doctoral degree at the University of Texas, where he has been an instructor since 1957. Bethel was formerly employed in private industry. He served in the Navy during World War II. at Springfield the day before "to pick their brains, and see if we get something constructive out of them." At the Sept. 5 meeting, Murphy said, the commission will receive a report on the revenue picture in Illinois. He said he also would ask Harold 0. Swank, head of the Illinois Public Aid Department, to appear before the commission. "I want to see what the monthly payouts are now in the IPAD," Murphy said. "We have to watch our spending." Doubts 'Article' Needed Murphy said the commission would not consider a new revenue article now. Gov. Otto Kerner has said a new revenue article is one of his main concerns for the 1964 legislature. "I'm not one of these people that's convinced that we need a new revenue article," he said. "I'd like to live within our budget." Count Geese After Rainy 'Drownder' Southern country >folk call it a "goose drownder." In Galesburg it might be referred to as a creek filler. Last night's downpour brought a respectable flow of water through erstwhile dry Cedar Fork drainage channel running through the middle of Galesburg. At noon today nearly two inches of rain had descended on the Galesburg community since the heavens opened up about 1:30 this morning. Too late in the season to mean much to major farm crops, the rain nevertheless brought welcome freshening to gardens, lawns, golf courses and shrubbery, and some raising of water level in the local lakes. Today, the effect on outdoor programs and recreation this weekend seemed likely to be adverse. The Weather Bureau, however, indicated that showers would end tonight. Sunday is expected to be cooler with temperatures ranging in the 70s. Most Illinois communities had rarn or showers. Fairly heavy rain fell in some north-central areas of Illinois and along the northwest fringe above Rock Island. Peoria reported .40 of an inch by 6 a.m. and Moline had .31 of an inch. Dubuque, Iowa, caught 2.55 inches. The third annual stag fish fry under auspices of the Galesburg El Bon Shrine Club slated for this afternoon and evening at the Shelter-in-the-Woods, southwest of Wataga, was postponed because of road conditions leading into the area due to the heavy rainfall. The club will announce a future date for the affair. Changes at Abingdon The doll buggy and bicycle parade of the Abingdon Fall Festival, which had been scheduled for today at 1 p.m. has been postponed until Monday at 1 p.m. due to rain. The pig scramble which was to be held today at 2 p.m. will be held Tuesday at 2 p.m. Possum Holler Opry tonight at 8 and the cake auction at 9:30 will be held, Earl Day, festival association promotion chairman, announced. Today's rains also devastated events planned at Yates City and Alexis. Yates City's streets were filled with residents awaiting the parade slated at 11 a.m. But a number of the people, state troopers waiting to stop traffic, and a Galesburg Register-Mail photographer all went home when the parade was abandoned. Though the parade was cancelled, officials planned to go ahead with the program, weather permitting. Talent shows slated this afternoon and tonight both were to be held in an outside theater. The third annual Alexis and North Henderson fat stock show was postponed until next Saturday, Aug. 31. It was to be held on the Alexis High School baseball diamond, but grounds were reported thoroughly soaked this morning. Fire Damages Truck Short-circuited wiring in a lift truck at the Burlington Truck Lines, 796 S. Pearl St., caused the apparatus to catch fire Friday afternoon. Damage, fire authorities said, amounted to about $100.
