GOP to Turn Out For Goldwater CHICAGO (UPl) — Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., is expected to boost his presidential stock in Illinois with a speaking appearance before the National Federation of Republican Women Wednesday. Goldwater, regarded as a favorite among the state's Republican voters, will fly ~ to Illinois four days after New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller addressed a Republican rally at Oregon, 111. Rockefeller was greeted by an abundance of Goldwater buttons and stickers and by a shortage of top Republican Illinois officials and candidates. By contrast, most of the state's GOP leaders planned to be present or represented at the Goldwater appearance. Charles H. Perry and Hayes Robertson, both candidates for the Republican nomination for governor, planned to be present. Wife to Attend Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier, described by party leaders as the current favorite in the race for the governor nomination, sent word he would be represented by his wife and his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Donald D. Carpentier, the wife of the state senator. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen, R-I1L, also planned to be represented by his wife, federation officials said. State Treasurer William J. Scott's office said Scott, on vacation, would be represented by Deputy treasurer Alexander MacArthur and might attend himself. Ray Page, superintendent of public' instruction, said he would be present. Page was the only state officer who arranged to be at the Rockefeller appearance at Oregon, and none of the candidates for the gubernatorial nomination were there. Goldwater Group Formed Goldwater was scheduled to fly into Chicago for the speech and be back at his Washington office the next day. It will be his first appearance in Illinois since the Illinois Goldwater Volunteers was organized to drum up support for pects on a statewide basis. Federation officials said more than 2,000 persons would crowd two ballrooms at a Loop hotel to hear Goldwater in person and by closed-circuit television. State GOP Chairman Victor L. Smith, who planned to attend, said that although Goldwater appeared to be the people's choice in Illinois, most of the state's profes sional politicians still were uncommitted to any potential presi dential candidate.

He said none were officers. The safety director said his investigators have discovered that some troopers charged gas. oil and accessories to the state, then later drove their own automobiles to the service stations to receive the items. 30 Identified This finding, Ragen said, was a by-product of the probe of payoffs by certain tow truck operators to state police for preferential treatment. Ragen reported five tow service operators last weekend identified 30 troopers who allegedly received the payoffs. The troopers named wore assigned to the districts in Blue Island and Crcstwood and to the Illinois toll roads.

Ballet Student Dies of Rabies From Dog Bite ROME (AP) - A British ballet student died early today in a Rome hospital of rabies from a dog bite in the face. Diana Celia Hall, 12, of Bradford, was bitten at the ballet academy of the Roma Opera Theater on Aug. 23 by a black police dog known to all students at the school. The dog was found to be rabid and was destroyed. Diana was given anti-rabies injections. Doctors said the treatment often is ineffective when someone has been bitten in the upper areas of the body, from where the rabies virus can travel more quickly to the central nervous system. County are willing to provide this care under conditions expected in this decade and the next one. He said if state force entered the debate on the project, a vote to spite the state would kill the home as well as any other single vote. Anderson could not say whether more or fewer persons will be needed to operate the home. But he pointed to one labor-saving device, a two-way system between each patient and nurses' stations. Instead of a nurse having to go to a room when a light comes on to ascertain a problem, the nurse can remain at her station and ask the patient what difficulty exists. Anderson said such a system in use in Bureau County is so sensitive, nurses can listen in to the rooms and hear whether the patient is all right. Discuss City Charge Harry D. McClurg, chairman of the jail committee, told the board that the city will pay $4 for each of its prisoners lodged in the county jail. But this figure may be revised at the close of the budget year when the committee gathers all expenditures and determines what a fair cost per individual would be. Any change from the $4 figure would be retroactive. Earlier this summer, the board adopted a figure of $6.36, but later" this was deemed too high. An opinion from Woolsey was read stating that no supervisor or precinct chairman can act as an election judge. Ross Litchfield and Doubet then changed names on their township lists, and the lists were approved. until he had more definite information.
