Get A Hold of the Experts Coll Hall FREE ESTIMATES No Job Too Small 342-2786 A pilot project for a proposed Midwest Studies Center at Knox College has been supported by a |Z4,5S4 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, according to Dr. Lewis S. Salter, dean of the college. A primary part of the pilot project will be a new course offered to Knox students and to high school teachers on Saturdays during the 10-week fall term. THE COURSE, "Utopian Vision and Current Reality in the Middle West," will carry one term or 31/3 semester hours undergraduate or graduate credit, according to Dr. Rodney O. Davis, associate professor of history and director of the project. "At'Knox we believe that the Middle West deserves special attention," Davis said, "first of all because it was in this area, through political and economic developments, that the promise America seemed to hold for the rest of the world was probablv fulfilled most completely." DAVIS ALSO noted that the failures of the Middle West also require study. For example, "The toll taken bv national acquisitiveness of the land and its resources is only now being recognized," Davis claims. The course wil,l consist of lectures and four all-dav field trios to the sites of historic Midwest Utopian communities and other areas of interest. Professors involved in addition to Davis include: Dr. Duane M. Moore, associate professor of geology; Dr. Hermann R. Muelder, distinguished service professor of history; Dr. Peter Schramm, associate professor of biology; and Dr. Douglas L. Wilson, associate professor of English. RONALD BERMAN, chairman of the Division of Education Programs of the National Endowment for the Humanities, said. "We look forward with satisfaction to the significant contribution this project may. make to the humanities." Persons wishing to enroll in the course next fall may obtain additional information from Davis by writing-to him at the Knox College, Galesburg, 111. 61401. Gifts by Alumni To Knox College Pass $100,000 The Knox College Alumni Fund has topped the $100,000 mark for the first time in history, according to Charles R. Wetherbee, vice president for development at the school. The old record, set last year, was just over $90,000. "Our alumni clearly have recognized the need for unrestricted giving in greater amounts," Wetherbee said. The total represents gifts from 3,441 individual donors. "We may see an increase of another 10 per cent in the number of contributors," predicted. Wetherbee, "but they will probably be slightly smaller in the amount." The Alumni Fund officially closes June 30. Republican Mass Transit Plan Is Scheduled for House Review By TOM LAUE SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - The six-county mass transit plan Republican leaders unveiled Tuesday will be officially offered today Jn the Illinois House, aeoorditig to House Speaker W. Robert Blair. Blair, a Park Forest Republican, told UPI Thursday he will introduce the plan "no later than" today to give people a chance to study it over the weekend. Contrary to speculation he would need Democratic cooperation even to introduce the bill, Blair said all he needs are votes—a simple majority— to get the bill before the Assembly. Some observers thought it would take 107 votes (an extraordinary three-fifths) to introduce the measure since the deadline for filing House bills has long since passed. Exempt From Rule But Blair said the bill can be considered a revenue or appropriations bill and therefore ex- Dedication Is Set Saturday For Buildings NAUVOO — The Seventies Hall, home of a unique adult education program in the 1840s, will be dedicated along with four other buildings in ceremonies Saturday at Nauvoo. Men from all walks of life who make up the priesthood of the church are known as The Seventies. The hall, which will be dedicated Saturday, was built in 1843 with the first floor a training area for missionaries, a small chapel and gathering place for residents. The second floor was a museum for traveling displays and for the curiosities brought back to Nauvoo by traveling missionaries. The building fell into disrepair after the Mormons left Nauvoo, but the foundation of the original building was rediscovered in 1970, and the reconstruction has kept as close to the original as possible. Also to be dedicated in ceremonies at 2 p.m. are the Brigham Young House, Noble- Smith House, Jonathan Browning House and Gun Shop, and Webb Wagon and Blacksmith Shop. The buildings have been restored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Nauvoo Restoration, Inc. All buildings are open to the public at no charge. empt from the 107-vote rule. 1 Bills dealing with these two areas can be introduced at any time during the session under House rules, regardless of the deadline for bill introductions. Blair said the GOP mass transit proposal has been "agreed to 95 per cent" despite shrill Democratic criticisms of the plan. Democrats stay the idea was sprung on them without consultation, that it contains no adequate audit system and that Chicago can't come up with the $15 million Republicans want the city to pitch in to get the transit district off the ground by 1975. Statehouse Democrats also lambasted the Republican reliance on $30 million from the state lottery-* concept that has yet to clear the Senate and gain Democratic Gov. Daniel Walker's approval. Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley said Wednesday he favors a lottery, Walker is wavering. Program at Altona ALTONA — Members of Altona American Legion Post 390 and Auxiliary will conduct Memorial Day services at the Altona Cemetery Monday at 11 a.m. The West Coast's highest television transmitter, operated by KBAK TV of Bakersfield, Calif., is on Mt. Breckenridge about 7,775 feet above sea level. Blair also told UPI there will not be a transit authority set up that can impose taxes without a referendum. "This is one thing that's dear," Blair said. "We will not allow taxes to be levied for mass transit without first giving the voters a voice." Blair said this is in keeping with the Walker view that no transit authority should be set up with taxing power unless the voters approve it. "Our plan is the only way to meet Walker's thinking and still keep the suburban and downstate people happy," Blair said. The GOP plan calls for cutting the state sales tax statewide by one-half per cent and then allowing it to be re imposed in the six county area that would be served by the new transit district. Downstate Tax Reduction The net result, under the GOP plan, would be a tax reduction for downstaters. Taxpayers in the six counties affected (Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Will and McHenry) would pay the same 4 per cent (plus one per cent local) tax they pay now. This "additional" one-half per cent sales tax in the six couft- tits would reap $100 million a year for the transit district, according to GOP estimates. Another $30 m i 11 i o n would come from the lottery if it i9 approved and Chicago would chip in $15 million. Another $15 million would come from a hike in the tax levied at parking garages in the district. The grand total for the mass transit system in 1975 would be $160 million. This, Blair said, would be more than enough money to get a feasible six-county mass transit district off and running.
