Second St., plans to continue his education in a technical school. While his inclination was to drafting, he has recently turned to automotives. "I guess every guy wants a car to hop up and show off to the girls," he grins. He has visited several factories to get a firsthand look at the field, but he may broaden his horizons even more. "I want to set up my own business where I can be my own boss." he says. REX WILL attend the University of Iowa, where he plans to major in music. Present career plans call for teaching or directing. Karen will attend Oral Roberts University at Tulsa, Okla., and major in biotagy. She may go on to graduate school although she says, "It's not really that I like school.

And the program included a visit to his home town of Pekin, 111., where one of his brothers recalled how young Everett used to practice his oration in the barn, and how you could hear him from the barn to the kitchen. His mother would remark, "Now just listen to him talk." People never stopped saying that about him, and anyone who watched Louclla Dirksen's video appearance Monday know ie had a lovely and loving Thomas M. Curithers, 31, 760 S. 'listener at home. Two Abingdon High School graduating seniors would like to see adults in the community become more involved with issues. DIANA FEY, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Fey, says that Abingdon residents are interested in the youth of the community and willing to help others. "But take for example the school board meetings. . .people don't attend. There's too much apathy," she says. "I like Abingdon, but it is a hard place to change. You really have to give people all <the facts. They tried to get a swimming pool a few years ago, but I guess they didn't give the people enough details because they built the totem pole instead," Diana states. Mark McCurry, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack MoCurry, has been an Abingdon resident for the past seven years. The family resided in large cities before moving to Abingdon. "Both big and small cities have advantages, but when you hear of the drug problems and riots, you're glad you live in a small town," he says. "I have the impression they care more about athletics here than they do about itihe curriculum offered," lie says. BOTH STUDENTS a g r e e that the community will pitch in if a need is really demonstrated. "But Abingdon reminds me of the United States after World War 1 - they only turn out if there is a dire need," Mark states. The seniors agree that generally speaking the teachers ilihey have had at Abingdon are good. "I don't feel our curriculum is broad enough. 1 haven't had enough science to lit into my future plans," Diana says. She also contends that students can experience a weakness in one area if, for instance, a teacher is strong on' literature but weak on grammar. "Our texts are out of date," she maintains. "I REALLY can't tell about my education until I get out and compare it with kids from other schools. I think they do the best job they can with what they have, though; Look around at the facilities .. . the shortages are in budget and equipment," Mark contends. Diana sees a need for people to work together to change society. "Unfortunately if someone's good falters, people are too ready to turn against him. People aren't giving President Nixon a chance right now. They're already condemning him," she says. She feels that public trust has faltered because of scandals in the government, and she thinks one result of recent developments will be youth entering politics in an attempt to change things. MARK WOULD prefer to see all society's forces mustered against solving problems of the ghetto. "It seems as though we are willing to send our money overseas, but we're not as willing to spend it at home for those who have a need. People should become acquainted with their fellow man," Mark says. Neither student is sure they will come back to Abingdon. Diana plans to study veterinary medicine at the University of Illinois. "I don't know if I want to come back to Abingdon. If I don't, I think I would like to settle in a small town in the western part of the country," she muses. Mark, who wants to major in radio and TV, plans to start his education at Carl Sandburg and continue at Southern Illinois University. "I think my career choice will dictate that I live in a metropolitan area, but even so, I would like to be in a suburban area. Big cities just don't do it for me," he states. WHILE BOTH agree that high school days have been happy ones, they are ready for the future. "I've loved high school and I don't want to graduate. I haven't lived the rest of my life, but I think being beyond high school will also mean more freedom," Diana says. "High school has been great, but we have to go on. I want to be on my own and independent. I think the greatest part of your life will come when you get married, have kids and raise a family," Mark says. Diana, who has been active in 4-H and Scouts, was editor of the school yearbook, and Mark was editor of the school paper. The Class of '73 . . . concerned, thoughtful, mature. You may have been lucky enough to see them stand by a classmate during the death of a parent. You may have had the opportunity to see them rejoice when a fellow student excelled, and you may have seen them stand by and give support when he failed. If you have been that lucky, you know without a doubt that the graduates of this season are a very nice group of young people. Oqruawka- (Continued from Page 2) around you?" Trustee Larry Greene asked. "Fine with me," Campbell answered, "My property's high enough. HOTTLE pointed out that his client had already been awarded $960 damages in a court suit against, the village. "We already got . . . of your money, maybe next time it'll be $9,000," the attorney warned. Board members later agreed to contact a quad-city attorney to bolster their legal forces for the next court bat- tie. In other business last night, the board decided to return $10,000 in revenue bonds borrowed last year "from the Bank of Oquawka for construction at the village owned boat harbor at the foot of Schyler Street. Board president Joe Colley pointed out that the money was not being u?ed and was "only costing us money to hold it." James Davis, of the Illinois public works' division of highways, attended last night's board meeting on an invitation by the board and discussed various uses and requirements the village must meet in obtaining and spending their share of the motor fuel tax funds. Trustees Greene and Tee, in charge of street maintenance, will meet with Davis later after they draw up a specific outline of needs in the village. GREENE was elected by the board as president pro- tern. He will conduct board meetings in Colley's absence. The board also agreed to seek bids for a new tractor with a loader and back hoc, and purchase a new weed mower. A small house located on property the village recently purchased in the northeast part of town will be sold, the trustees decided.
