Friday, Sept. 6, 1963 Stickell Found Sane, Must Face Federal Charge By LEO SULLIVAN Lawrence Stickell, former Galesburg attorney, was ruled to be sane this morning at East Moline State Hospital, where he has been a patient since July 29. As a result of today's ruling, Stickell will be released Monday to the custody of Dan Afeld, .deputy U. S. marshal for Southern District of Illinois, authorities said. Afcld indicated this morning he would take Stickell to Chicago immediately following his release. The warrant on which the marshal is to gain custody was issued after Stickell failed to appear July 29 for a hearing before C. S. Bentley Pike, U.S. commissioner in Chicago. The commissioner's hearing was in connection with a warrant issued in U.S. District Court of Colorado, in which the former local attorney was charged with causing to be transported in interstate commerce checks which fraud.

Knox County Sheriff Max E. Jones also sent a detainer to the hospital in connection with a writ issued July 29 by Judge Daniel J. Roberts in Knox County Court. Stickell was to have appeared here that day at 10:30 a.m. for hearings on a.current report filed in the estate of Clara Beacham Swanson, for which he is executor, and also on a petition to remove him as executor. First local information as to Stickell's whereabouts after he failed to appear here or in Chicago, came in a telephone call to this reporter the evening of July 29 from Mrs. Stickell relating he had been admitted that day to the state hospital. The petition for emergency commitment was signed by Mrs. Stickell and filed in Rock Island County Court. It was accompanied by a certificate, signed by a Davenport psychiatrist, stating that Stickell was in need of mental treatment. The hearing to determine whether Stickell should be committed to the hospital or discharged was started Aug. 23, at the hospital and then continued to today. Sheriff Max E. Jones and State's Atty. Donald C. Woolsey, who were at' the hospital this morning, said a warrant to hold Stickell for Knox County now will be sent to the U.S. marshal in Chicago. Psychiatrists Disagree The sanity hearing was started two weeks ago by Judge Forrest Dizotell, Rock Island County probate judge filling in for County Judge Lawrence Phares, and two psychiatrists. At that time, it was reported there was a difference of opinion between the two psychiatrists and also that four psychiatrists on the hospital staff had found no psychosis in Stickell's case. Apparently, a decision in the case required no further testimony as the hearing was resumed this morning. Stickell, his wife, and two attorneys were called into the hearing room, remained there briefly and then law enforcement officers interested in the case were called into the room. They, too, remained only a brief time, and when they emerged it was related by Afeld that Stickell would be released to his custody Monday. Local Delegate Will Attend Barber Meeting C. B.

The commission will hear appeals on two license applications, for the DcLuxe Cafe, 236 S. Seminary St. and Depot Drug Sundry, Inc., 240 S. Seminary St., both in Spilios' name. Cabeen, as city liquor commissioner, has refused liquor permits for the two establishments because of the physical condition of the two places and (he "character of their operator." Despite revocation, Spilros operated a liquor business at the cafe last year by virtue of a court ruling on a technicality. Spilios is currently serving liquor at the DeLuxe Cafe pending the outcome of the commission hearing and a decision from Circuit Court, where he has filed mandamus proceedings to force Cabeen to issue the license. The commission hearing is set for 10 a.m. at the state capitol.

Backer Savs By JOHN ZAKARIAN Unless Paul Peck gets assurances within the next few days that he will be able to sell liquor at a proposed motel at Prairie and Ferris streets, the project may be abandoned.

Losey St. 9th Annual ROTARY TRAVELOG SERIES CARL THOMPSEN ^ TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1963 "AUSTRIA WALTZES AGAIN" Tickets Now On Sale Only $ 5 for all 6 Attractions NOn Sale At LINDSTROM'S — "4c &E GROCERY and by ALL *~ ROTARIANS. ROTARY CLUB of Galesburg property, has given him until Sept. 20 to purchase the Galesburg Club tract, site of the proposed motel. Furthermore, a group of quad-city businessmen have set a time limit in their willingness to invest in the $1 millon project, Peck stated. Future of the project hinges on whether the mayor, as liquor commissioner, will consent to the sale of liquor at the site, which is across the street from the First United Presbyterian Church. The church has vigorously objected to the sale of liquor at the proposed motel while the Chamber of Commerce, Galesburg Trades and Labor Assembly and all aldermen are supporting Peck's plans. Submits Petition To meet requirements of the liquor ordinance, Peck has submitted two petitions purporting to carry the consent of two- thirds of the property frontage owners adjacent to the club site. Owners state in the petitions that they do not object to the sale of liquor at the northwest corner of Prairie and Ferris streets or at the southwest corner of Waters and Prairie streets. The petition is with Mayor Cabeen who has yet to rule on their validity. When he does, Peck can apply for a license. Petitions Appear Valid Signatures appearing on the petitions were checked by Corporation Counsel Dale Ruedig, who said that persons signing their names appear to be the rightful owners of the property of the addresses listed. This he found out. by checking tax receipts at the county clerk's office. A more detailed check would require weeks, he said. Meanwhile, the mayor, who has been reluctant to issue a license because of the church's objections, said today he wants to look into the petitions further before ruling on it. "In studying it, some questions have been raised in my mind and I would like to have them answered," he said. Two Signatures Questioned Two of the questions raised were signatures by Harry Swanson on behalf of property owners at 215 N. Prairie St. and by Louis S. Gard on behalf of property owners at 175 E. Water St. Swanson said he signed the petition with the owner's consent and is willing to submit an affidavit to that effect. Gard signed the petition with the authority of his two brothers, Paul W. Gard and S. Wayne Gard, according to the family's attorney. The three brothers own the property at 175 E. Water St. and live out of town. Asked whether he will issue Peck a liquor license if the applicant meets all legal requirements, Cabeen said: "As long as he meets legal requirements there doesn't appear to be any bar to having a license, but I could say I don't think I am going to issue a license because it's not ir the best interests of the community." If the mayor refuses, Peck can appeal to the State Liquor Commission and Circuit Court. Legal observers have conjectured that if Peck meets all legal requirements and Cabeen refused him a license, the state commission would reverse the mayor's decision. Cabeen said he will inform Peck by mail on the final outcome within a few days.

Court's Elm Loss Tax Cut Won't Help Other Losers CHICAGO (UPD—An Urbana lawyer said today he was confident of victory over the federal government in an elm blight dispute. But U. S. tax officials warned other taxpayers bereft of their elms that the outcome will give' them little cause to rejoice, even if he wins. Attorney John Alan Appleman won a jury verdict in U.S. District Court at Danville that the loss of 100 or more of his elm trees amounted to a casualty loss on his income tax returns for 1956 through 1958. An attorney from the U.S. Justice Department's tax division in Washington filed a motion asking Judge Casper Piatt to find in favor of the government despite the verdict or else grant a new trial. A follow-up brief has not been filed with the court. Accepts Annulment Appleman said at Urbana he doubted a brief ever would be filed. "I think they'd be very foolish to make an appeal," he said. The Internal Revenue Service at Chicago noted that the case pertained only to Appleman.

Library Offers Free Movie Projector Galesburg Public Library Board decided Thursday to make a movie projector available to organizations which need one to show the films which are available through the Western Illinois Film Cooperative. The projector was donated to the library by the Galesburg Rotary Club last month. Mrs. Warren Morris, librarian, said after the regular meeting last evening that the projector can be reserved at the time a film is ordered. The 16-millimeter films range in subjects from biographies to history to sports. Each year the city library puts $750 into a fund with other libraries in this area, making a budget of about $2,000 to purchase the films. The only charge to the borrower is a 50- ?ent handling fee. Members of the board have expressed disappointment with the popularity of the project, and have considered dropping it. However, they said they hope free use of a projector will change this. Room Open Nights The board told Mrs. Morris to proceed with opening the children's room one night a week. Beginning Sept. 16 the hours for the room will be from 9 a.m until 5:30 p.m. each weekday except Wednesday. On the latter day hours will be from 12:30-9 p.m. On the same day overall library hours will change from 8:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. to 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. Funds amounting to $1,308.82 were voted for subscriptions to magazines and newspapers for periods ranging from a year to three years. Added to the newspaper list were "Des Moines Register," "Atlanta Constitution," and "Washington Post." Mrs. Morris said a geographic basis was used to select the newspapers Circulation showed a slight in crease during August over the same period a year ago. For 1963 combined circulation amounted to 15,244 as compared to 15,203 in 1962, for an increase of 41 volumes. Although adult and hospital figures showed gains, juvenile dropped 909. Building in Good Shape Mrs. Morris reported that a soap container and soap dish had been removed from library wash rooms, but that otherwise the building was in excellent shape. Bills paid for books and magazines totaled $1,175.61 for August, and salaries and other bills approved amounted to $2,029.37. Mrs. Daniel J.
