RacketType Fund Raising Hit by Law CHICAGO (UPI) — Fund raising racketeers will be driven out of Illinois by a new state law, Atty. Gen. William C. Clark said today. "Those racketeers and ghouls who use the facade of misery and the mask of charity to enrich their personal coffers are in for trouble in that they face exposure, imprisonment and fine s," Clark tol^ the Midwestern Conference of the National Association of Attorneys General. "The new Illinois law, patterned partly after New York and Minnesota statutes. • .requires the registration of professional fund raisers and organizations who intend to solicit funds" in the state, Clark said. Accounting Must Be Made "After the solicitation, an accounting must be made with the attorney general, thereby making financial information available to the public," he said. Clark said the "charity ghouls" operate through direct mail, raising funds for bogus causes and sending unordered goods to the public. "Most charitable organizations and professional fund raisers are he said. "However, Resistance To Arrest Brings Fines Police Magistrate D. Paul Nolan fined one man $200 today for resisting arrest and fined another $150 Saturday on the same charge, with costs added in both not suspect," charitable organizations and professional fund raisers have been either unable or unwilling to po-. lice the field themselves." •The new law," Clark said, "prohibits the unauthorized use of an individual's name by a charitable organization. It also prohibits the sending of unordered goods . . .where there is no request or order by the recipient and""where the cost of the goods exceeds 25 per cent of the funds collected." Clark said a recent study estimated there were 100,000 soliciting agencies in the country, raising $8 billion annually, of which $5.4 billion comes from families making less than $10,000 a year.

That's why it is wise to select a funeral director as you would a doctor or nurse, basing your choice on ability, training and experience. In time of need we will serve you with professional efficiency plus the personal interest of a friend. spoke to over 1,000 in the grandstand. He criticized the present administration in Washington, D.C., on three main points —finances, foreign aid and foreign policy. Defends Aid Slash • * In a retort to President John F. Kennedy, Brotzman said slashing the foreign aid bill last week was not shortsighted and irresponsible as the President said. It is not irresponsible to cut foreign aid, the Congressman said, when it goes for television sets for a nation without electricity or when $3V '2 million are s;jent for a yacht for the emperor of Ethiopia, or to cut off money to those who trade with Cuba, the rattlesnake in our backyard. There has been a continual flow of messages from the White House this year, and they cannot be untangled, Brotzman said. First came the State of the Union message, and everything was depicted as calm and the President said government expenditures would be curtailed. Action Belies Promise Then came the budget, the highest ever with $99 billion, which exceeded expected receipts by $12 billion. After that came the tax message. "It appeared the nation was getting tax relief, but as I read along, found that it was losing money,* 1 for the taxpayer. Next was the economic message sent by Walter Heller, "and believe me he is," said Brotzman. This message said in effect spend all you have and borrow the rest to meet expenditures. Brotzman said he noted an interesting item in Heller's record. In 1951 he was sent to West Germany to advise Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and Minister of speak now, the Congressman said, he would probably say that the type of financing we now have in Washington cannot be long endured by the nation. Every minute $19,000 is spent on interest for the national debt, and this comes before any roads or rockets are built, he said. Many member letters this freshman of the House 96 North Chambers St. GALESBURG. ILLINOIS Economics Ludwig them Erhart, and a report calling for controls and deficit ESTABtlSHED 1922 gave plenty of spending. Fortunately for the history of West Germany and Europe, Adenauer and Erhart threw Heller out, Brotzman said. This could point up an interesting item for us, he added. 'Cannot Re Long Endured' If Abraham Lincoln were to receives decry the lack of foreign policy. He said he can't answer why this nation is in coalition with the Reds in Laos, yet fights them in Viet Nam, then places obstacles in front of those who would fight their way back to their homeland. It is time to tell people such as the Cubans we are on their side, he said; "It is strange this nation, dedicated to liberty, has to make such a statement, but our actions at the Bay of Pigs and other places cause these people to wonder." He said he wrote the Secretary of State for all de-classified information on the rebellion against Castro, but as yet he hasn't received it. This information must be passed on to the people. Dcms Drag TCieir Heels He charged the Democrats with responsibility for this slow-moving session of Congress. He pointed out that they hold a 3-2 edge in the House and 2-1 in the Senate. He also warned Republicans attending the rally that the Democrats want GOPers to call each other names such as liberal or conservative Republicans. 'They do this to cover their own schisms," he said. "The challenges are great and the stakes high in the next election ," he said, and the nation needs to re-elect a Republican president in 1968.

Set Heavy Penalty for Wild Driving Gene Hawkins, 31, 385 Clark St., was fined $150 plus costs and put on probation to the Knox County Sheriff today after pleading guilty to a charge of reckless driving. State's Atty, Donald C Woolsey told the Knox County Court that this was not the first time Hawkins had been reprimanded for driving. Woolsey said the case arose from an accident earlier this month on 111. 116 east of 111. 41. He said Hawkins passed one car and was going too fast to avoid striking another, which was also going in the same direction. Hawkins did not stop, Woolsey said, and continued down the highway at a high rate of speed, finally turned, and although the car lost a tire, still kept driving about 80 miles an hour. Drinking was also involved, Woolsey said. Hawkins was also instructed to hand his driver's license over to the sheriff for six months. The period of probation was set at one year by Judge Daniel J. Roberts. List Two for Trial Two other cases were carried over for jury trial the first Monday in October. Sandra Pera- beau, 21, of 340 N. Broad St., pleaded not guilty to a charge of aggravated battery involving beating Jeanne Wilson, 38, 146 S. Prairie St. with a shoe the night of Aug. 17.
