Septic tank run off has emptied Into Lake Storey from the perk said. since 1970, Yallaly Subject Revived The matter was revived earlier this month when Aid. Donald Johnson, Fin* Ward, complained at an informal City Council meeting that nothing had been done to alleviate the problem. He suggested that the owners of Lake Storey Trailer Park, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Manyx, should have their license Oaken away. If the Manyx' do not comply witti the Department of Public Health's 90-day ultimatum, the licensing agency could do what onnson suggested.. The state Environmental Protection Agency is currently testing the lake which could result in a lawsuit against Mr. and Mrs. Manyx. Lyte Ray, of the state's Division of Wafer Pollution Control, calls ithe area at the east end of the lake a "hazard." Last May, a similar report was issued by state EPA officiate. At that time, the Manyxs were ordered to upgrade the disposal system. The state also told them to clos*; laundry facilities at the trailer park on U.S. ISO and North Lake Storey Road. The owners dosed the laundry and hired an engineer to .prepare pirns for the sewage aisposai syswrn. utmswuction was never started because the ftfanyxs learned the Gataburg Sanitary System planned to install a sewer Mm to service the Lake Storey area.

Changes were ordered this week by the state Capital Development Board, which reviews plans for junior colleges and universities and also makes recommendations concerning allocation of funds. The architects met yesterday with board members, faculty and administration to explain the changes. Carl Sandburg College President Ellis Henson said today the revisions will take between three to four weeks. He expressed confidence, however, that the Capital Development Board will release funds in early June. Also at last night's meeting, the board of trustees drew up formal resolutions accepting LaHarpe, Roseville and Bushnell-Prairie City school units into Carl Sandburg College District 582. NINE SCHOOL districts have passed resolutions to annex to Carl Sandburg, Henson said. He noted that annexation of the districts would boost the $338 million assessed valuation of the college district to more than $527 million. Henson also said several other area districts have indicated an interest in annexing to the college. Dr. F. William Kelly, dean of instruction at Sandburg, said today that the college district's increased assessed valuation will mean a "direct tax relief on the bond issue." In what one board member described as a "surprising and disappointing vote," the trustees turned down 4-3 a proposal to install emergency lighting in the school. Tom Wilson, board member, asked for a legal opinion on the action. IN OTHER action, the board: — Hired David Roth, Flora, as new director of the Learning Resource Center. Roth obtained bachelor of science and master of science degrees from Eastern Illinois University. He will begin work June 11. — Approved a new student constitution. — Tabled a request for change in late registration requirements. — Hired Mrs. Carline Johnson as audio-visual clerk. A graduate of Western Illinois University, Mrs. Johnson had been working part time at the college. She was placed on Level I of the salary schedule, $325 per month. — Announced graduation ceremonies will be held June 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Galesburg High School auditorium. Paul Simon, former lieutenant governor of Illinois who is now director of the political science department at Sangamon State University, will be the speaker. — Approved a resolution of tribute to former Knox College President Sharvy G. Umbeck, who died May 5. The board recognized "his dedication to both the field of education and the community." — Approved a request to change physical examination requirements. The measure says that "in place of the physical examination form which was completed by a licensed physician, each student — full-time and part- time. — will be required to submit a brief medical history form." The board, however, reserved the light to order physical examinations when deemed necessary. Public Hearing Reset on Thursday A public hearing on a proposed annexation agreement between the city and Roy and Loretta Drasites scheduled for Wednesday has been rescheduled for Thursday at 7:15 p.m., City Manager Thomas Herring said today. The meeting has been rescheduled to coincide with a City Council meeting Thursday at 7:30 p.m. The Drasites are seeking to open a Toyota car dealership north of Main Street and east of U.S. 34 at the west edge of the city. The city will zone the 10 acres as B-2 commercial. The city, at its expense, would install water service to the tract of land when requested by the owners, and the city would maintain and operate the water system. Legislators Back £lan to Increase State Aid Level Representatives Gale Schisler, D-London Mills, Michael McClain, D-Quincy, and Fred Schraeder, D-Peoria, are supporting a proposal by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to increase state aid to local school districts. Additional state aid to schools and property tax relief were among the major reasons given by the lawmakers for their support of the measure. Schisler and McClain explained that under the OSPI proposal, schools within their district would receive an estimated increase of 12,334,760 in state aid, and those in Schraeder's district would receive a hike of more than $1,389,000. Besides increasing state aid to local school districts, Schraeder noted the OSPI proposal would establish a tax freeze on school districts that already have high tax rates.

Medical Center's Chief Outlines Health Care Needs By MICHAEL JOHNSON (Assistant to the Editor) The president of a large Chicago medical center presented more than 150 Cottage Hospital Associates with some cold facts about the new demands on medical care Thursday night at the Galesburg hospital's first recognition dinner for the associates. Dr. James A. Campbell, a Knox College graduate who heads Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago, was the featured speaker at a dinner at the Gales­ burg Holiday Inn honoring those who have contributed time and money to the. Cottage Hospital development program. CAMPBELL, who also is a Knox College trustee, told his audience that the medical profession must be able to meet the nation's demands for more trained personnel in health care and recognize that proper care is compatible with economic efficiency. While seven per cent of the gross national product is spent on medical care, Campbell said, the potential consumers are still being shortchanged. The profession operates in a disorganized laissez-faire environment, and those who cannot get access to it learn to resent those who can. The physician said that the expanded Cottage Hospital will house 240 beds and to provide proper care should have available three beds for every 1,000 persons it serves. Cottage, then, must serve an area with a population of 80,000 if the beds are to be appropriately utilized. IF THE 80,000 persons get adequate care, he continued, doctors should be available to see each of them four times a year. That is a lot of outpatient care and a lot of physicians, he noted. The job of the metropolitan medical center is to organize a related system of hospitals with 4,800 beds to serve 1.5 million people. Outside the Rush Medical Center facilities, the institution must produce 110 physicians a year, 60 of whom must be channeled to the field of primary treatment — home or office care. They must be supported by five trained nurses and allied health care personnel. Campbell also cited a need for the unification of health care and health education fields. THE HEALTH education world is intrigued with molecular biology, he said, but that detracts from the care . of patients. The medical profession fails to relate care and education in the localities. Health education, he said, must also place emphasis on See 'Medical'(Continued on Page 15) Hospital Names Maggard Executive VP Marshal G. Maggard was named executive vice president of Galesburg Cottage Hospital Thursday at the hospital's 82nd annual corporate meeting. This is a change from his former title of administrator. David D. Fleming, the hos* pital's vice president for development, explained that as executive vice president Maggard's duties will remain the same. The change, said A. M. Bondi, who was re-elected president of the hospital's Board of Trustees, is part of a modernization and restructuring of the administrative organization designed to keep pace with changing manage­ ment concepts in the health care field. Maggard, who has been the hospital's director since 1964, was also named a member of the board. Re-elected to 3-year terms on the board were Bondi and Mrs. Charles Wetherbee, both of Galesburg, and Miss Ruth Bradway, Abingdon. New members elected to the board were Thomas Anderson, director of admissions at Knox College; Dr. Kent Kleinkauf, a Galesburg physician, and G. Louis Vitale, president of G&M Distributors, Galesburg. They succeed Dr. M. A. Clarman, Robert Harper and Lambert Peterson. Peterson serv­ ed 33 years on the board. He will continue to serve as treasurer, a position to which he was re-elected at the organizational meeting. Arvid A. Schoning was named chairman of the executive committee and Fleming was named to continue as vice president for development. Other members of the board include Harold Bourdon, Dr. Robert Cabeen, Hubert Dutell, Dr. Homer Fleisher Jr., H. Dale Gunther, Hugh Harris, Mrs. Dean Hertenstein, Dean Lindstrom, Robert E. McLaughlin, A. T. McMaster, Harold Nichols, James Powelson, Francis J. Ryan, Schoning and Sam Swanson.

"The name of the house is our program," Solomon said today. It will teach boys who have been moved from place to place or foster home to foster home how to care about themselves and others, he added. The home will house about 8 to 10 boys for about four months at a time. The boys will be assigned to the home by the State Department of Children and Family Services serving the Peoria region, which includes Knox County. Solomon has had experience in the DuPage State School for Boys, Naperville and the Illinois State Training School for Boys, St. Charles. Firefighters Visit 146 Homes, Inspect 63 for Fire Hazards The Galesburg Fire Department visited a total of 146 homes during the first week of its Home Awareness safety inspection. According to a fire department report on the week's activity, a total of 63 homes were actually inspected. No one was at home at 65 homes, and homeowners refused permission for inspection at 18 others. Ted Webber, fire chief, said the program was started to point out potential fire hazards in an effort to cut down on residential fires. All inspections are done with the consent of the homeowner. A written report is handed the resident at the conclusion of the inspection listing potential fire hazards. Firemen conduct their inspection from fire trucks, which can respond immediately to an alarm, according to Webber. Past Commanders Install Slate Carl Benson, 790 E.
