i • Golesbur jster-Mgi \ £ Galesburg, Wednesday, June 6, 1973 Ur ed lo en 11 By LARRY REID (Staff Writer) A former POW urged 615 Galesburg High School graduates Tuesday night to adopt five basic tenets which helped to sustain him through his rftore than six years of capltivity, Maj. Thomas Gordon Storey, who was released from a North Vietnam prison three months ago, listed faith, family, friends, freedom and future as the basic beliefs which gave him strength during his imprisonment. "Adoption of these tenets will enable you graduates to prevail as a free spirit/' he said. Storey, a 1949 graduate of Galesburg High School, intro­ duced himself as an American petriot and a free spirit. "Three months ago I was released from prison and since then I have been on the road talking to Americans. Tonight is the icing on the cake," he told graduates. "IF I CAN relate to you tonight and pass on the things I have learned about myself and other people, maybe we can change the face of things," he asserted. "Square your shoulders and stand tall as you walk across the stage for your diploma and after that I personally want lo shake the hand of each one of you, M the major said, "— and he did, all 615 of them. In closing he told of re­ ceiving a letter from an English woman who wore his bracelet. The letter said, "I hope you prisoners of war can put the United back in the States of America." "As we approach the 200th anniversary of America, lets put the United back into the United States of America," Storey exclaimed. Three members of the graduating class gave talks preceding Storey's commencement address. Robin Stout told his fellow graduates that knowledge they have gained in school is a valuable asset for the future and should be put to work. "PROVE TO yourself that the time spent in school was not wasted," he said. Stout encouraged the use of the past as a basis for determining the future. The diploma, he said, was worthy pursuing. "It is now up to us as individuals to decide how to use our knowledge," Stout said. Kay Carr, former editor of the Budget, told the graduates that they are now on the threshold of choosing their life's work. Few, she said, comprehend the meaning of adulthood. "No longer can we depend on parents for the bulk of our support," Miss Carr said. graduates to build a better world in which lo live, take pride In determining their destiny and develop a personal commitment to the ideals of the American society. ANIMA MISA, an American Field Service student from Ghana, who attended classes this year at GHS; gave a farewell talk. "I have learned so much during my stay here," she said. "Galesburg is a wonderful town with wonderful people and I will never forget the friends I have made. My experiences have been so worthwhile," she said. school bafid directed by Miss Sally Rynott.

Officials estimate repairs will take three or four days. Members of the Knox County Board's Veterans Assistance Committee this morning were told that the fund for aiding veterans will be in trouble next fiscal year. Max Mathers, superintendent of the Knox County Veterans Assistance Commission, told the committee that the tax rate for the fund will be dropped from this year's figure of .019 cents per $100 of assessed valuation to .008 cents for the next fiscal year. Mathers said the rate drop would mean that there would be a drop in revenue for the veterans assistance fund from $51,310 in the current year to $19,308 next year. 4 'When I discovered the rate had been dropped, I thought there had been an error. But when I checked, I found there had been r>;> error. We're in trouble," Mathers told the committee. He explained that the rate for a fund is determined by the amount of the budget, total assessed valuation and outside sources or the amount remaining in a fund at the close of the fiscal year. "This fund has no outside sources. Ail its fund come from a tax levy which is allowed for the aid of veterans hy statute,'' Mathers commented. He said that while a current balance slie&t shows a balance on hand of $40,971, the figure is erroneous because of loss of personal property tax and funds held in escrow. The current fund will see the committee through until Dec. 1, but Mathers predicted that money could run out as soon Senators in Both Parties Pass SPRINGFIELD Sen- state funds to widen roads.Jbarrel bill I've sponsored since i Republicans Chicago Democrats have ap-| dredge lagoons, build some $40.8 million I've been a member of this dams, body," said Sen.

"What do we do until the distribution of funds in June .... let people starve?" he asked. The superintendent said he had discussed tha problem with the county treasurer and had been told that if tax bills are mailed on time next year, there could be an earlier distribution of funds. "That could forestall the problem for a time, but the real problem will come next year," he said. MATHERS said the only way of bringing the levy into line was to up the budget from its current $60,000 level to $80,000, which would in effect bring the rate up and produce more revenue. "There is no way we can get by with the $19,308 we will get with the .008 levy. We need close to $40,000," Mathers told the committee. rojects $7,027 billion state budget.

She also charged Larry Hendricks, president of the NAACP, with "generally irresponsible leadership/ 9 She said he has contributed to the "tension and mistrust'* that exists between the commission and the Economic Opportunity Office. "He has interfered badly in the operation of the Equal Opportunity Office, where his wife is the director, and used it for his own project/' she continued. Hendricks, after hearing of the resignation and comments made by Mrs. Goltermann, called her a "middle-class rabble-rouser who' never should have been put on the commisison." He said she had never understood black people and has caused trouble ever since she was appointed to the commission. "I DON'T know why Mrs. Goltermann had to bring up all these other organizations to resign. She is resigning from the Human Relations Commission, not the human race/' Hendricks said. "With her racist attitude I'm happy she is resigning." Mrs. Iona Hendricks said her husband had not interfered with her job. "He is not all/' she contended. Mrs. Goltermann listed other reasons for resigning. She said the commission has "all the hindrances of being a public body such as public meetings and public prcs j sure, limited membership ana an ordinance that says we are to eliminate prejudice and discrimination from Galesburg. We have absolutely no statutory power or staff to even begin to accomplish such things." SHE SAID she also was rejecting the Human Relations Commission because it is 1973 and not 1955. She said times have changed and it is now clearly against the law for anyone to be discriminated against. "What is needed now is legal expertise and money/' she added. "The City of Galesburg has now committed itself to a Department of Human Services with a budget of $41,000 and four- full-time employes and possibly more. It is time to use the vast amount of legal and governmental machinery at our disposal in the protection of civil rights," Mrs. Goltermann commented. She commended the work of Louise Wilder, director of the commission, saying she had been "extremely successful in serving as a liaison in the community between those in authority and those people who need help in dealing with authorities." Westside Rezone Is Recommended An amendment to an annexation agreement with Western Estates Development Corp., initially opposed by Parkwest Subdivision residents, was recommended for approval last night by the City Plan Commission — but with two changes. The amendment originallj asked that three lots zoned residential in the 1970 annexation agreement be zoned commercial to allow for additional space for a new car dealership — Fesler Motors. The first change reduced this to two lots. Evergreen trees will be planted to act as a buffer between homes in the. area and the car dealership. The second change stipulates that Kings Canyon Boulevard be extended to West Main Street as in the original agreement. A performance bond will be posted to ensure that the road be built by December 1974 or prior to that date. Parkwest residents orginal- ly spoke against the rezoning of the three lots but later agreed with the amendment change because of the buffer zone accord. They also expressed fears that Kings Canyon Boulevard might never be built. . "THE STREET will never go through, that's our feeling," said William Telle, 403 Kings Canyon Blvd. "Why do we have pre-annexation agreements?" asked another resident. "They're worthless." "I don't think you would have ever drawn up the Constitution," quipped Mayor Robert Cabeen, commission chairman. The commission also reviewed a proposed plat of Aloha Acres Subdivision to be located on the west side of Bandy Avenue between North and Losey streets. Members voted to follow the subdivision ordinance and require that streets be no less than 60 feet wide. RED CROSS BL00DM0BILE To Visit St Marys Hospital THURSDAY WHEN THURS JUNE WHERE Ors.
