12 GateSbura . Regisfer-AAgil, Galesburg, (II. Soturdoy, Sept. 7, T963 Bishop Hill Town Board Acts for New Water System BISHOP HILL—The Bishop Hill Town Board met Tuesday evening in the Township Rooms of the Steeple Building. Attorney R. M. Everett of Galva and Alfred Hillemier from the Engineering firm of Webber, Hillemier and Fisher of Kewanee, were present to make plans for opening bids on the water system in Bishop Hill. The date was set for Sept. 20, but has since been changed to Sept. 26 at 5 p.m. in the Township Room of the Steeple Building. A representative from the Home and Housing Agency of Chicago also will be present, since this federal agency appropriated a loan of $29,000 toward this project for Bishop Hill. The town's attorney, R. M. Everett and a member of the engineering firm and town board will meet at the session. The well was drilled a year ago this August, with the state appropriation of $7,500. It is hoped that work will be completed this fall. Road commissioner Maynard Lindbom announced that streets in town would probably be oiled and sanded by the end of this week. The township officers met Wednesday at the fire station with several townspeople present to ask assistance from the township in removing snow this winter from town streets. William Tarleton and William Dowell acted as spokesmen for the town and it was decided that, with the aid of the Town Board, to map out which streets should be cleared first, so as not to hinder the maintenance crew in opening roads for school children or emergencies. The township maintainer will be used. Snow also will be cleared around the Community School and the Community Methodist Church. Since the village is not financially able to obtain its own street maintaining outfit, is seemed necessary to make some agreement with township officers.

RUSS BARST0W CHANDLER-HINCHMAN AGENCY 240 E. SIMMONS Russ Barstow Lotus Regan 342-1159 (12) Maps and Graphs By The Reading Laboratory, Inc. Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association We've discussed the "survey and resurvey" method of studying textbook chapter. You survey the chapter several times: first, read the summary, the largest bold type, and study the maps, graphs and picture captions to find the main ideas; second, read all of the bold type. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph to find .the secondary ideas; skim the entire text to get a stronger grasp of the secondary ideas, and, finally, check off the major details that may require memorization. In this method, the first step is the most important. If you get the main idea of the chapter, everything else will make sense. And the most valuable tools you have to find the main ideas are the maps and graphs. The old saw says that a picture is worth a thousand words. To a student laboring over a textbook, the maps and graphs can be worth much more. One battleline map of Grant's Wilderness .Campaign can Lell you more than pages of text can —and it's easier to remember. A simple curve in an economics text can define a law in concrete, "guns-and-butter" terms that are much easier to understand than the abstract theorizing of the text. Yet lots of students seem to be afraid of maps and graphs. They can look imposing when you don't understand them, but the little time needed to decipher them will pay tremendous dividends. Battleline maps can be the most confusing. The first thing you should do is study the key. For the Wilderness Campaign, J BARTLE PEARS for instance, there may be a solid line for Grant's troops and a broken one for Lee's army. It'll look complicated, but if you take your time and follow the map line by line, you'll see the whole pattern of the campaign as the lines shift. The same thing holds true for battle maps using arrows instead of lines. Just take it piece by piece, arrow by arrow, and the meaning will come clear. Multiline graphs scare a lot of students. But the same principle holds. Find in the key the meaning of e&ch line and trace it separately. Then, after you've understood each line, the graph itself will begin to communicate. Tables of statistics are an other student-scarer. Don't try to learn them; it's foolish and timewasting. Look for a pattern in the statistics. If the entire table is devoted to showing that the real per capita income in the United States rose from X dollars to Y dollars in a certain period of time, be satisfied with knowing that the income rose and about how much it rose. Don't try to learn each separate statistic; get the main idea of the table. In general, you can get a lot out of maps and graphs if you don't let them scare you. Just go to the key, find out what each line or number means, then find the overall idea behind the map or graph and study it. (NEXT: How a book is different from a television set.) Large, juicy.
