The estimated cost on the first ^state 74 running north earlier this year Galesburg project made set the figure at $428,000, and the second at $197,000. The cost of the fencing was included with figures for right-of-way acquisition, and was not broken down for an estimate. Paving This Fall The 5.8-mile segment of Interstate 74 between Galesburg and Knoxville is under contract, and Commission j To Consider Zone Issue City Plan Commission tonight will consider possible reclassification of the residential zone on Seminary Street between Grove and Losey streets. Reclassification to a commercial district would allow Galesburg Medical Arts Clinic to expand its physical facilities at the northwest corner of Grove and Seminary streets. The commission had previously urged that a study be conducted on the possibility of such reclassification and a report is expected to be made tonight. Seminary Street from Main to Peck is already classified as mercial. The bids will be part of total projects valued at $28 million that will be sought Sept. 27, according to Francis S. Lorenz, director of Public Works and Buildings. This will be the seventh of eight lettings scheduled for 1963. Other Bids Sought In other bids sought for Interstate 74 which will ultimately connect Galesburg with Interstate 80 in the Rock Island-Moline area, and cities such as Cincinnati, Ohio, two are for major work. Bids for one include three miles of paving, two interchanges and three grade separations in Peoria County. When completed the superhighway will connect with U.S. 150 north of Peoria. The second includes paving 4.22 miles of the route near Danville. Prison Term Probation granted last Jan. 10, to Charles Edgar Rogers, 19, of 486 E. Second St., in Knox County Circuit Court, was revoked this morning. Following the invocation, Judge Keith Scott sentenced the. youth to a term of two t to six years in the state penitentiary, on the original charge. Alleged involvement in another burglary case, subsequent to the start of his probation period, was said to have been the factor in action for revocation. Rogers was placed on probation after pleading guilty to a burglary charge rn connection with an incident last fall at Park Drive Dairy, 595 N. Whitesboro St. The period of probation was until he attained the age of 21. A supplemental report by Lloyd Hcrbener, probation officer, was filed in court.

The older Hartshorn and Rogers were taken into custody Sept. 2, after a car belonging to Hartshorn was found parked in Oneida.

Goals and values developed by young scholars while at college will be considered by students and faculty members during the 3-day event. Panel discussions will be used to develop the basic issues involved in various topics including "The Honor System," "Campus Social Life," 'The Greek System" and "Examination of the Academic Process." Purpose of the sessions, according to college officials, is to help student leaders understand the aims of the college in encouraging wholesome values and goals and to see where opportunities for campus leadership are to be found.

The commission turned down a request to amend a zoning ordinance which would have allowed construction of medical clinics in residential areas. Unfavorable reaction from commission members also came when the clinic owners sought to rezone the property from multi-family to commercial in June. One way to allow the clinic expansion was to extend the commercial classification on Seminary from Peck to Losey streets, the commission stated. Residents have objected to rezoning or amending the zoning ordinance as suggested by the clinic. Amend Ordinance In other business, the commission will hold a public hearing on a proposal to amend the zoning ordinance to redistrict or reclassify from R1A to RIB, property located on the west side of South Farnham Street, south to Clay Street and north of the Peoria branch of the Burlington Railroad. Other items slated for consideration are request to operate a nursery school at Grace Episcopal Church and a kindergarten at Covenant Church, and the amendment to a zoning ordinance to provide for replatting of corner lots in RlA districts. This includes 13 miles of Interstate 80 from Ladd to Princeton which will be open for traffic Sept. 30, a small part of Interstate 74 at Peoria, the bypass of Interstate 55 at Springfield, and part of Interstate 57 from Cairo to Chicago which will be opened in the West Frankfort area. This will give the state more than 700 miles of its 1,588-mile allotment of the super highway routes completed, Lorenz said. Besides the 700 miles ready for traffic, another 100 miles along various super highway routes are under construction and in various stages of completion, Lorenz said. This will put Illinois well over 50 per cent completion. The only part of Interstate 80, which will ultimately connect New York City with San Francisco, Calif., that will remain to be completed in Illinois will be the 20-mile section between Annawan and Princeton. Motorists will have a 70-mile stretch from Interstate 55 west of Joliet to Princeton beginning Sept. 30, and construction between Rock Island-Moline has already been completed. The remaining 20 miles will be finished next year, Lorenz said. D rexel and PRESENT mi* Judge, Daniel J.

The three owners pooled their resources to build a new structure at 53 N. Seminary St. and business was carried on in that location until 1956. It was a further expansion of business that caused them to move again to East Main street, according to Mrs. Bell. Ten years after the store opened the company entered into the ready-to-wear and sportswear field. The firm will conduct a sale at the ready-to-wear department later this week and hopes to have the furs cleared by Nov, 1, One of the partners, Mrs. Daisy B. Davis, is 90 years and wishes to retire, according to announcement made by the company. "In deference to this the store is being closed," the announcement added. Mrs. Bell resides in Florida and Harry Bell died in 1957. The owners plan to lease the building at 444 E. Main St. The W eather Kmj to Aband tied Aut Creates My, By LEO SULLIVAN OQUAWKA — Was the owner of a car which was found abandoned in the state forest preserve near Oquawka Aug. 28 a victim of foul play? That possibility is being considered by Henderson County Sheriff Vincent Carlson and authorities at Sioux City, Iowa. Harold Henshaw, an employe at the forest preserve, found the car, which had been driven down one of the fire lanes and off the lane into the timber. It was theorized the auto had been in the location approximately two months. The fire lanes had been disked some six weeks prior to the finding of tlie car and after t|iat time Featuring Furniture by D rexel indicate no parking at any time; ; it WQU \$ not nave been possible green hoods, no parking 8 a.m. j t0 have fi ,. iven a car aj on g the ON: SUNDAY IN COLOR IN: CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE PEORIA JOURNAL STAR SEE IT IN: HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, HOUSE to 6 p.m., and yellow hoods, no parking day or night, without permit.

Main Street lane, Carlson related. Investigation disclosed that the car was owned by David Warner oi Sioux City. Then came other information which raised the question of foul play. Warner's mother told Sioux City authorities that her son had lived with her since he was paroled a federal penitentiary at Stockholm, Wash. Last June 1, she said, a man named William McCommis, who had been in the penitentiary at the same time her son was, came to their home. Warner, authorities were told, ap- j peared to be afraid of McCommis. The two men left the residence from hasn't been heard from since. Sheriff Carlson received a letter Wednesday from the manager of a Sioux City finance firm which had made a loan to Warner on the car. The letter said that McCommis* mother resides in Cloud- craft, M M and that McCommis was married Aug. 14, at Las Vegas. The finance firm manager related he had been advised by Warner's mother that "he loved the car, so much that he kept it polished every week." Warner, according to the letter, has money coming from the Good Will Industries but has not written them about it. Warner's parole officer at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was reported to have expressed surprise that he would jump his parole and also expressed fear that he might have been a victim of foul play. Sioux City author* es, Carlson was advised, have referred the case to the FBL Why the owner would abandon the car, why it was driven from Sioux City in northwestern Iowa to the isolated spot in Illinois, and why Warner has vanished are Pag« l W*aih»f Strip* Brown—Storm Yellow—Fall fled— Warns Blu«— Cold • NORTHERN ILLINOIS: Winds diminishing tonight becoming part- lv cloudy and much cooler, LOW tonight b the 40s northwest, 45-52 east and south.

Dropped at ROVA High No more senior trips for ROVA High School students. The school district's Board of Education has cancelled the annual event and gave four reasons for doing so: 1. After a student has been graduated, the school has no control over his behavior. 2. The added responsibility for teachers who chaperone the trips is above and beyond the call of duty. 3. It requires much time for money raising and extra meetings to make plans. 4. There will almost always be some member of the class who, although having helped earn the money for the class, will not be able to raise enough extra money to make the trip. In other business the board set admission rates for athletic events at 75 cents per adult and 25 cents for students. Approval was given for the purchase of a drivers education car from Weaver-Yemm in Galesburg for $2,062. The car will be sold back to the company at the end of the school year. Two new electric welders were purchased for $179 plus trade-in. 4 Ragen down on state policemen involved in alleged payoffs in northeastern Illinois counties. Kerner said the Illinois Liquor Control Commission has been successful in its crackdown on tavern operators who purchased federal gambling stamps. Kerner said he was not familiar with details concerning racial demonstrations in Chicago but declared he is for open occupancy in housing. He said that since his meeting with Illinois mavors in August rc- trading racial discrimination, human relations commissions have increased about 70 per cent. On other matters, the governor said the new statewide curfew law for persons under 18 should be enforced * 'with good judgment" by local officials. "I don't want to tell the police officers how to enforce the law but it will be most helpful if it is properly enforced," he said. Kerner said he would have signed into law a bill to increase state aid to schools by $32 million if the legislature had provided the necessary funds. Volunte Are r Accepted at Therapy Center being Easter Volunteers are still sought for work at the Seal Therapy Center for physically handicapped children, Mrs. Ernestine Colson, occupational therapist, reported today. The center opened its doors for the fall season last week and has accepted pre-school physically retarded children from throughout the county. These children are enrolled in a program called Tiny Tim Workshop. Mrs. Colson will be assisted by Miss Frances Brockley, a former principal of Stone School. Volunteers assisting in the workshop are Mrs. Keith Olson, Mrs. Mervil Stephens, Mrs. G. W. Henderson, Mrs. Jack Sanford, Mrs. Jack Schwarz. Office volunteers are Mrs. Paul Higgens and Mrs. Leonard Moburg, and Mrs. J. R. Doores is assistant therapist I
