Public Aid Costs Cut in July, August SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - Relief expenditures for July and August were $4 million under the monthly averages for the current biennium Illinois Public Aid Director Harold 0. Swank told the state Budgetary Commission Thursday. However, Swank said summer figures must be under the monthly averages because of heavy increases in relief spending caused by greater unemployment in the winter. Swank sairl the relief appropriation of $640 million for the fiscal two year period figured out to an average monthly expenditure of $23.9 million. He said relief spending in July was $2.3 million under the average and spending for August appears to be about $1.7 million under. Of the savings in July, Swank said, about $460,000 could be attributed to ceilings on individual relief payments imposed by the legislature. Budget Director Ted Leth told the commission that in July the state income from major revenue sources was $316,000 more than estimates for the month. He said income for Augus 1 ; was about $2.8 million below estimates, but said some money probably was in clearing accounts and had not been tabulated in the short time since the end of the month. K COOKING » WATER HEATING • HOME HEATING 45 S. PRAIRIE ST. Dear Penny, We can find happiness by sharing it, but never by dictating its conditions, t hope the daughters of the widow will reconsider or at least keep still and allow their mother to be happy in spite of them. It's bad enough when parents won't let their children grow up and live their own lives, but it's certainly worse for children to try and order their parents' lives. We recently had a similar situation in our family, and it has worked out very well for everyone concerned. 1 am very fond of my step-father and happy to see my mother's life made more pleasant. VERY HAPPY CONTRIBUTOR Dear V. H. C, It's nice to know when people are happy, and it's especially nice to receive a letter like yours. I don't, however, believe you can make a blanket statement that it will work out this well for anyone who tries it. I think each case must be decided on its individual merits, considering the interests and background of the people involved. Dear Penny, I am writing to you about a problem that concerns many of us with small children, but we aren't just sure what to do about it. It concerns those two dreadful high slides at Lincoln Park. Why don't the park officials take them down and replace them with some safe equipment? Most of the children who go to Lincoln Park are pre-schoolers, and those slides are just too high. I have seen one accident this year and several near-mishaps. Mothers with several small children can't be everywhere at once. So, please, can't we have them removed before a real tragedy occurs? UPSET MOM OF THREE Dear Mom of Three, Probably your best bet would be to call and discuss this dangerous equipment with the city manager. He can either handle the complaint for you, or tell you the proper place to take it. A good mother is always looking ahead, trying to spot the dangerous areas and remove them before a child is injured. For this reason, I certainly hope the park department does give your suggestion careful consideration and acts upon it if it is felt to be warranted. Dear Penny, You recently had a letter in your column about the hours at Lakclawn. As a member, I would like to say I think the club has been extremely well-managed. The staff has been very dedicated, and any suggestion made to the club has been happily received and if possible acted upon, fn order to fully enjoy the fun, members should plan accordingly—the dishes will always wait. I offer a note of thanks to those who made possible such a club which provided such a happy summer for my family and me! A HAPPY LAKELAWN MEMBER Dear Member, We're happy you're happy, but I still say that if the lady who wrote that she and other members felt the evening closing hour was too early, she should voice her feeling to the club management. A good club wants to please the bulk of its members and would rather hear comments such as these first, than to have them noised all over the community. Thinking of you . . . Penny Send your questions to Penny, In care of the Galesburg Register-Mail. Your letter will be answered either In this column or personally.

Knox County Judge Daniel Roberts reported a pair of prescription - ground sunglasses were taken from his unlocked car sometime between 4 and 6 p.m. The car was parked near the Galesburg Public Library, where Mrs. Roberts was attending a board meeting. Roberts told deputies the glasses were valued at $39. A four-speed record player was taken from the home of Thomas Sherman of near Williamsfield between 4 and 4:30 p.m. yesterday.

U.S. District Judge Joseph Sam Perry delayed sentencing James D. Hensley, 17, Canton, on an auto theft charge Thursday when he was told that Hensley's father, James, a construction worker, would not pay $5.20 for a bus ticket to bring his son home. The judge had planned to place Hensley on four years' probation but said the boy must have a sponsor. Hensley pleaded guilty Thursday to charges he took a stolen car from Chicago to Cape Girardeau, Mo., where B'BI agents arrested him July 22. He has been jailed since while awaiting trial. Probation officer Wayne Jackson told the judge that Hensley's father and an uncle both refused to pay the bus fare to Canton. The elder Hensley and his wife, Louise, have four other children. Injured on Trip, Mrs. Firth Now At Home Here Mrs. J. Elvin Firth, 540 N. Prairie St., has returned home after spending some time with her daughter, Mrs. Roy Tucker, Wichita, Kan. After receiving injuries in an accident in Spain, Mrs. Firth was a patient in St: Joseph's Hospital, Wichita. Mrs. Firth, Mrs. Gertrude Morris and Mrs. L. M. Peterson were touring Europe when the bus accident occurred. Mrs. Morris and Mrs. Peterson continued on their tour, and Mrs. Firth's daughter went to Europe and accompanied her in returning to the United States to enter the Wichita hospital. ,000 Damage Suit Filed in Henry County CAMBRIDGE—A 2-car accident last April 13, at the intersection of Vine and Ninth Street in Kc- wanee, was the basis of a $20,000 damage suit filed this week in Henry County Circuit Court. Plaintiff in the action was Phillip R. Nyert, with Marvin L. Brown listed as defendant. Nyert stated in his complaint that he was driving west on Ninth Street and Brown was traveling on Ninth Street at the time of the collision. The plaintiff sought damages for personal injuries and damage to his car and requested a jury trial. 'ALE5BUR3 B Illinois state police in 14 months. Public Safety Director Joseph Ragen Thursday sent the probers to 70 tow truck establishments in the climax of a year-long investigation. "Our undercover agents have already compiled much information. It appears that some policemen have been receiving kickbacks of 35 to 50 per cent of the towing charges by favoring certain operators," Ragen said. Ragen, one of the nation's foremost penologists before being named public safety director by Gov. Otto Kerner, said the kickback system apparently was in effect "for at least 10 years. It has resulted in money being taken out of the pockets of motorists because of increased service charges and in harassment of the towing operators." Ragen said most of the; incidents apparently occurred in the Chicago area, at two police districts and on the toll roads. A total of 196 troopers arc assigned to the area involved. Kerner said the probe "may reveal further irregularities among state troopers." Only 14 months ago 16 troopers were suspended in a probe of gifts totalling $65,000 a year to Chicago area state police from 95 trucking companies for overlooking truck weight violations. As a result of the investigation seven troopers were fired and a dozen resigned. Many more were demoted or transferred. 85 n.
