.24 QalesburgReaMg^Moil, Golesbura, 111. Monday, J una 4 J 973 Future of Education Is MONMOUTH-James B. Hoi derftian, featured speaker at ;Cx5frriffieficement at Monmouth •Collage Saturday, told gradu 'ates that private colleges are where the action is today. <• Holderman, vice president tor education of Lilly Endowment, Inc., discussed tire current drop in enrollment at almost all of the colleges and universities in the country and his ideas about future trends. To emphasize the tremendous growth in educational facilities, spending and enrollment in the past few years, Holderman discussed those factors in Illinois. He.'noted that enrollment in Illinois colleges and universities had grown from 260,000 in 1062 to 406,000 in 1972. "That means that in the past 10 years enrollment grew 185 per cent." According to Holder' man, casts for education in creased 182 per cent and the number of colleges and universities in the state increased 109 per cent. "Now we are faced with dropping enrollments," Holderman said. Statistics prove that enrollment at public institutions dropped for the past' two years and estimates indicate that it will be down again this fall; that community college enrollment is leveling off, and that only private schools appear to be holding their own. Cautioning against complacen­ cy at private colleges, Holder* man said that data released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the over-all decline in college and university enrollment will continue until 1981 when it will again equal enrollment at Illinois schools in 1962. "That means we will have college and university facilities In Illinois for 500,000 students but only a 260,000 enrollment," he said. "On the encouraging side," said Holderman, "are the results of a survey taken recently by the A. C. Neilsen firm which, show that 275,000 people in the state between the ages of 21-65. would respond to learning experiences if they were available. "We can make up our enrollment by delivering education to people who have never before been exposad to it," he suggested. According to Holderman, pri vate colleges are uniquely suited to holding their own during the coming enrollment crises for several reasons: —•They are not so dependent on the tax dollar which he doesn't see being increased in education. —They are better prepared to serve new kinds of students. —They are small enough to give personal attention, —They are generally better managed. He concluded his talk by say ing that even though survival is important, private colleges must aspire to more than surr viva!. "You must aspire to leadership," he said.

Carves Out Path Of Destruction Through City MONMOUTH Community Memorial 4 Hospital MONMOUTH - A recently released mental patient left a path of destruction during a rampage in the Monmouth area early Saturday afternoon. Warren County Sheriff David Watkins said today his office was first alerted to the trouble by Tom Wade, an em­ ploye at Russ Motor Sales, •located at the junction of U.S. 34 and U.S. 67 at the south edge of Monmouth. Wade said today he first became aware of trouble when an almost hysterical woman and. three small girls came into his office and wanted to make a phone call. "I don't know who she called but from the conversation it became apparent to me that this was a matter for the police, so when she finished talking I called and asked them to help." The woman was Mrs. Orville Hilliday of Burlington, Iowa. She told sheriff's deputies her husband, Orville, 29, had kicked her and her three small daughters out of the car in front of Russ Motors, told her he was going to kill their 8-month-o'ld-son, Leo, and sped down U.S. 34 toward Kirkwood. Sheriff Watkins said Deputy Don Lovvorn took off in pursuit and notified state police for help. "But before we could apprehend the man, he caused two accidents and terrorized one of our employes and his family who live near Kirkwood," Watkins said. The first accident caused by Holliday occured at 1 p.m. about two miles west of Monmouth. Holliday was driving his car west on U.S. 34, passed an unidentified car on the right at a high rate of speed and crashed into the rear of an auto driven by Robert Hartzell, 32, of Girwall. The impact shoved the Hartzell car off the roadway and down an embankment but the driver escaped injury. About five minutes later, the Holliday auto struck a car driven by Steve Snider, 20. Burlington, Iowa. Snider was driving his car west on U.S. 34 about six miles west of Monmouth. He told police he looked in his rear view mirror and saw the Holliday car approaching at a high rate of speed and attempted to accelerate to avoid being struck. Snider failed to get out of the way, however, and his car was struck in the rear, knocked off the roadway and down an embankment. There was major damage to both cars and the Holliday auto stopped running about one-half mile from the scene of the second accident. Sheriff Watkins said today that witnesses who passed the Holliday auto while it was careening down the road from Monmouth told him they saw the man holding his baby out the window and beating it against the side of the car. After his car ceased functioning, Holliday apparently strapped the baby to his back and took off down the road about a mile, for his next known appearance.was at the Virgil Presswood home. Presswood, who works as a night deputy at the sheriff's office, said today he was working in the yard at his home when the man approached him yelling. "At first I thought he was playing a kid's game, so I yelled back at him," Presswood said today. Presswood said this seemed to incense the man. "He took the baby off his back, threw it on the hood of my car which was parked nearby and started attacking me," said Presswood. Presswood said that although the man was much larger than he was, he managed to get him in a hammerlock at about the same time one of his sons, who had been watching the attack, managed to get a gun to him. "When he heard me cock the gun he just gave up and begged me to kill him and the baby," said Presswood. Presswood said he didn't want to harm the man and when lie ceased struggling, he released him. Holliday then picked up his baby and took off down the road. Presswood .said Deputy I/JV- vorn and Trooper Steve Huggins arrived about that time and they and Troopers S'.eve Anderson and Ken Clore, who arrived shortly after, were able to pursue and take Holliday into custody. "He threw the baby into the field when Steve approached him," said Presswood. Holliday and the infant were taken to Community Memorial Hospital where the baby was treated and released to its mother. Holliday was transferred to Galesburg Research. Watkins said today it was his understanding Holliday had been released from a mental institution in Missouri only about two weeks ago.

Liberty Bell Crack Despite popular belief, the Liberty Bell did not crack when the Declaration of Independence was read in Philadelphia on July 8, 1776. It cracked 59 years later when it was rung for the funeral of Chief Justice Marshall. Davis Named To Missouri Demo Post HANNIBAL, Mo. (UPI)-V .'1 W. Davis, newspaperman and former press secretary to former Gov. Warren E. Hearnes, has been named to the full-time post of executive director of the Missouri Democratic party. Democratic State Chairman David Donnelly announced Davis' appointment Saturday during a two-day party fund-raising observance. The appointment is effective June 15. Davis, 55, has been Illinois capital reporter for the Quincy, 111., Herald-Whig. "My job will be to give continuity to the party's operations," Davis said, "to keep the store open on a day-to-day basis and help any Democrats in any way possible." The state party, $50,000 in debt, has not had a full-time director since Dwight Fine quit after last fall's elections. Fine, a former state Revenue Department employe, has filed for the Democratic nomination for state auditor. Sam J.

(UPI) — Tim Sanders hunkered down the tall grass and put what the leadership and stability the United States. "The Watergate plot appears to have been seriously subversive of our electoral processes and potentially very dangerous for a free society" said Columbia University President blast when he comes in for the William J.

Ervin, D-N.C, I chairman of the Senate panel investigating the bugging and coverup, said he was anxious to get to the heart of the matter. "The people should not have to wait three to six to eight months," Ervin told the graduating class at Wilkes College in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. "I would hope that the hearings could be completed this month and that key White House personnel would take the stand during that time." Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D- Minn., told graduates at the Georgetown University Law School in Washington, "The events of Watergate and the related assault on the constitutional perogatives of Congress show the difference between strong representative govern­ ment and oppressive government dedicated to preserving power for its own, rather than for the people's, sake." Humphrey said, "There is no mention whatever of the steps government might have to take to protect itself against the people or to preserve its own perogatives. The simple, direct language of our founders offers the most reliable guide in recapturing one's bearings and in deciding what has to be done." "It helps a lot in curtailing losses," Sanders said Sunday in an interview. "I use it mostly for sport, but <today I went out in | to two fellows with complaints. |I called up two coyotes that in looked like a plastic whistle to his lips.
