In a letter to parents of 2,500 incoming freshmen and new transfer students, Dean G. R. Schwartz said, "Because of construction and generally overcrowded conditions, we strongly urge that your son or daughter not plan on keeping a car on campus." But if the car is the only means of travel from home to the campus, the student will be permitted to register it, said the dean. READ THE WANT ADS! ELLESON'S BAKERY 144 E. MAIN ST.

Richard P. Lamoreaux, Warren County state's attorney, said the action was taken to permit Sage to enlist in the Air Force at Amarillo, Tex., for a period of four years. The charges can be reinstated. The indictment was in connection with the highway death March 29, 1961, of Rev. John A. Hunt, who at that time was director of Corpus Christi High School and chaplain of St. Mary's Hospital. The two-car collision took place on U.S. 34, approximately 4M: miles west of Galesburg. The Warren County Circuit Court grand jury on Sept. 26, 1961, returned indictments against both the boy and his father, Elmo Arthur Sage Sr. Jury Fines Driver It was indicated at the time the indictments were returned that there was a question whether the boy, then 15, or his father was driving the car at the time of the crash. A verdict by the coroner's jury at the inquest into the death of the Galesburg priest listed the father as the driver and recommended further investigation by the Warren County state's attorney. Lamoreaux said the charges against the senior Sage remain on the court records. Docket entries in Warren County Circuit Court list the father as having entered a not guilty plea when arraigned Oct. 3, 1961, and then withdrawing this plea and entering a motion Oct. 31, 1961, to quash the indictment. No hearing on this motion was scheduled, it was reported. In the boy's case, a motion to quash the indictment was filed Oct. 24, 1961, at which time the case was continued. A civil suit under the Dram Shop Act was filed March 24, 1962, in Knox County Circuit Court, seeking $20,000 damages from the Silver Front and Pastime Club, two Galesburg taverns, and the owners of the buildings. The suit filed by Robert Hunt as administrator of Fr. Hunt's estate alleged that the taverns sold the senior Sage liquor which caused his intoxication. This suit was reported to have been settled out of court and was dismissed March 26, 1963.

Volunteers At Hospital Workshop Volunteers from a nine-county area gathered in Galesburg Tuesday to observe the latest techniques in the use of activities as an aid to patients' adjustment and improvement. More than 80 individual volunteers and volunteer group representatives participated in the annual Fall Volunteer In-Service Workshop at Galesburg State Research Hospital. The workshop was arranged by volunteer services supervisor, Mrs. Florence Doyle, and associate supervisor, M r s. Anna Mary McCoy, in cooperation with the activity therapies department for the Research Hospital volunteers, who in the year ending July 31, contributed 9,807 hours of service and made 184 group visits. The volunteers were given an orientation to some aspects of the mental health problem at a screening of "The Lonely Night," a film which portrays the background, problems and hopes of an individual in search of help. A group discussion of the film was conducted by Dr. James D. Wang of the psychology department, who also explained the psychological aspects of its story. In summarizing and evaluating the program, Louis L. Lehmann, director of activity therapies, told the volunteers of some of the problems and disappointments of their work. He advised them, "The most important thing you bring to ward programming is yourself. If you genuinely give of yourself, this is sensed by even the most ill patients, and you have accomplished something very worthwhile even if your planned program has not received as much evident response as you might like." Scott Tells Safeguard on Public Funds CHICAGO (AP) — State Treasurer William J. Scott says "a department of internal security" has been established in his office to protect the $2 billion it controls. In a speech Tuesday night to the Chicago Chapter of the Association for Bank Audit Control and Operation, Scott said two outside audits have been made since he took office in January and will be made at six-month intervals hereafter. The former banker also announced receipt and opening of 800 bids from Illinois banks for short term deposit of state funds totaling $400 million. Deposits Draw Interest Scott, who last week awarded $30 million for 12-month deport at 3.75 per cent interest to three Chicago banks, said the public funds formerly were deposited in private banks which could use the money without paying interest. The state treasurer estimated $150 million of the $400 million will be deposited at a 120-day arrangement paying 2.75 per cent interest with the remaining $250 million drawing 3,25 per cent interest during six-month arrangements. Banks which accept on deposit the state money must pledge 110 per cent of its value in government securities. The treasurer said the arrangement provides more lendable cash to banks, thus spurring the econo- m;-, besides giving the ntate more revenue. Galesburg, Register-Moil, Galesburg, HI. Wed, Sepf.

Bon City Employes Told Not to 'Overpark' City employes have been re minded not to "overpark" in Galesburg municipal parking lots Governmental cars are at pres ent allowed to park free of charge in city-operated lots but this should be done only on official business, City Manager Thomas Herring informed employes in a circular. At a City Council meeting last week an alderman complained that federal and state government cars are sometimes parked all day in front of 10-minute meters. They seem to be abusing t h e privilege provided by the city, the alderman said, without mentioning city vehicles. Herring told employes that city cars arc to be used for official business only and urged them not to park in front of meters more than is necessary. Guardsmen Refuse LONDON (UPI) - The British army has refused to supply Maurice Fogel, 47, a magician and illusionist, with a firing squad so he can catch nine bullets with his teeth. Maj. Gen. Eustace Blois Nelson, who Tuesday turned down Fogel's plan to have the trick done on television, said: "It is not a suitable job for her majesty's guardsmen." Turner, tipple foreman, went to see if the chute had been cleaned and discovered Maserati in the conveyor. No one knew how he had gotten there. Maseratt was taken to Graham Hospital in Canton, where he died shortly after noon of chest injuries. Only a short time before the accident, Mike Delmastro.
