Red Cross Anniversary Is National, Local Occasion Knox County Chapter of the American Red Cross this week joins some 90 other national societies in marking the international group' 100th anniversary. Focal point of the centenary observance will be Geneva, Switzerland, where the Red Cross Proj. movement began in 1863. But, like the Red Cross, the ceremonies will be world-wide. Plan Tree-Planting In Galesburg the event will be marked by the planting of an an niversary tree by the local Woman's Relief Corps and collection of fruit juice cans for the blood center. The Galesburg American Legion post has already donated 100 cans of juice and other organizations have indicated they would do so too. according to Mrs. Riv ers Sullivan, volunteer adminis trator. Tours of the local chapter and the blood center will be conducted every day of the week except Saturday. Leaders of nearby Red Cross chapters will be invited to the tree planting ceremony which will honor the first president and founder of the American National Red Cross. The event is slated for Sunday at 2 p.m. in front of the local chapter's headquarters, 1640 N. Henderson St. On TV Sunday Afternoon The Knox County chapter also will participate in a TV show on channel 8, Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The Knox County Chapter was chartered in February, 1917, at the request of five registered nurses. It has subsequently grown into an effective organization with headquarters in a modern building on North Henderson Street constructed early this year. The Knox County chapter has already joined with the Henderson County chapter in bloodmobile operations and plans are being formulated for at least two other counties to join, Mrs. Sullivan, who spearheaded the move, has said. In the year the world-wide Red Cross marks its 100th anniversary the American Red Cross enters its 82nd year. Throughout the world, Mrs. Sullivan stated, citizens and governments of 90 nations acknowledge the validity of two ideals basic to the Red Cross movement preservation of human dignity and prevention of suffering. Founded By Swiss These ideals, she pointed out, were first expressed by Henri Du- nant, a young Swiss businessman Shocked by the sight of thousands of wounded he found unattended at the battle of Salferino hi 1859, Dunant described his experiences in a book published three years later. His book called for the forma tion of volunteer relief societies backed by "some internationa principle." Other Swiss citizens joined Dunant in his appeal to the conscience of the world and in February 1963 five men formed what is now known as the Inter national Committee of Red Cross Eighteen years later, Clara Bar ton, a woman who had gained fame for her work among the wounded during the Crvil War, successfully climaxed her cam paign for the formation of an American Red Cross Society. To day, the Red Cross, through its nearly 3,600 chapters and two million volunteers touches the lives of more Americans than does any non-governmental agen cy, according to Mrs. Sullivan.

List 30 State Troopers in Pavof f Ring CHICAGO (AP)-A state official says 30 state troopers accused of receiving payoffs for steering business to specific tow truck operators have been identified. The identifications came Sunday after state investigators questioned five tow truck operators, said Joseph E. Ragcn, state director of public safely. So far, the invcsligation has centered around District 4 located in the southern Chicago suburb of Crestwood and loll road District 15. But Ragcn said it will be expanded to include District 2 in Elgin and District 3 at Irving Park Road and Harlem Ave. Ragcn said one tow service operator confessed he had been making payments for lfi years. Others told state authorities they had been making contributions for more than 10 years. In the pursuit of the tow service inquiry, investigators found another area—credit card swindles. State police carrying vouchers for payment would frequent certain garages and service stations. The vouchers were drawn up for payment of services never actually performed and parts, lubrication, gas and oil never acquired. The amounts would cither be returned to the troopers or split with the various garages or service station operators, investigators said.
