TINY TIM STUDENT—When it comes to breaking into a wide grin, Jackie Sanders is like any other 5-year-old; when it comes to walking, he isn't. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Sanders, 290 W. 4th St., was stricken with polio during infancy and has worn braces since. With the aid of occupational therapy received at the Galesburg Easter Seal Therapy Center, Jackie has < been able to achieve partial rehabilitation. Worn out from much walking practice, the boy's $350 braces will soon be replaced by a charity organization. One of Jackie's four brothers and sisters has club feet and the Knox County Society for Crippled Children and Adults has agreed to furnish him with special shoes which would enable the boy to walk.

Therapy Center Faces Financial Troubles Eight students thus far have been enrolled in the financially pressed Easter Seal Therapy Center for physically handicapped children at 169 S. Cedar St. Operated by the Knox County Society for Crippled Children and Adults, the center had 12 students last year "which was more than we could handle," according to Mrs. Ernestine Colson. registered occupational therapist in charge. The society has considered reducing the center's operating hours this year to curtail expenditures. Although many of the staff at the center are volunteer workers, some are salaried, Mrs. For rest A. Borngrebe, president of the society's board of directors, said. There were a few months last year when no wages were paid to salaried staff, due to lack of financial resources, Mrs. Born- grede said. Easter Seal Therapy Center is supported by public subscription, which so far has not been adequate to cover all expenses, Mrs. Borngrebe stated. In an effort to get more revenue the society will conduct a "neighborhood walk" during the first week of September. Volunteers will knock at doors in residential areas seeking donation pledges.

Gotesburg RegisferMail, Gofesburg, Iff, Thursday, Aug. 29. 1963 3 Improved Garbage Removal Object of City Investigation By JOHN 2AKARIAN Garbage collection service in Galesburg has improved • since July but leaves a lot to be desired, according to City Manager Thomas Herring. Herring and Ira Asbury of Williamsfield, owner of the firm which collects garbage here, recently met to discuss ways of improving the overall garbage collection service. The meeting was a result of several hundred complaints received at City Hall during July from residents whose garbage was not being collected weekly. The complaints were registered in all departments of City Hall, according to Herring, who estimated they totaled more than 600. Garbage collection was not made in some areas during July due to a mechanical breakdown of a haulage truck, Herring said. The truck is operated by Asbury Refuse Co. of Williamsfield which has the city garbage hauling contract, according to the city manager. Complaints All Year Complaints on the disposal of refuse in Galesburg have been raised continuously during the past year. Residents have objected to what they considered inadequate collection of trash and garbage from their properties. Trash collection is handled privately by residents and garbage collection is handled by the city through Asbury. Any change in the system would probably not come before September 1964, when the $86,000 annual contract between the city and Asbury expires. City officials are attempting to formulate an improved garbage- tfash collection and plan, which would be adopted during the latter part of next year. Included in the plan is the possible acquistion of a sanitary landfill neaf Galesburg. New Landfill Site At present trash is taken to a landfill about 15 miles away near Victoria, and garbage to an equal distance to near Williamsfield. This is an expensive and inconvenient operation, according to Herring. Several sites closer to the city have been considered but no decision has yet been made. In addition to improving the disposal system, city officials have also been, considering a change in garbiige-trash collection. One possibility is the combination of both as a service provided by the city. The city has done this in the past but abandoned it with the hope of establishing a better system. Purchasing or leasing a new disposal landfill or combining trash-garbage collection would mean an increase in expenses. Currently the maximum tax levy is being imposed and the city proposes to transfer $17,780 from water funds this year to bail out the garbage fund.
