Galesburg Register-Moil. Golesbur Chosen to MONMOUTH James P e r e g o y, 1020 Cramer Court, announced Thursday the names of three men who will hold key posts in the 1963 Warren County YMCA Fund Drive. Peregoy, general chairman of the week-long drive which begins Sept. 29, announced that Arthur Padella would be chairman of the special services committee; Scott I. Klukos, public information committee and the Rev. John Collins, solicitation committee. As in the past, the efforts of some 350 volunteers will be enlisted to make personal calls on about 2,500 Warren County residents. The theme for last year's successful drive, "Your Money Creates Action," will again be used in 1963, Peregoy said. Goal for the annual campaign will be $30,000. Last year's Jrive, most successful in the history of the Y, brought in $24,700 under the leadership of Everitt Hardin. It was preceded by an emergency drive in March which received contributions totaling $8,000 and allowed the Y to keep operating until the September Fund Drive. Seek to Scrub Deficit The 1963 goal, which is $2,700 less than the total of last year's two drives, is designed to erase the 1963 deficit of $6,000 and provide the $24,000 necessary for operation in the year 1964. "If this drive is successful," Peregoy pointed out, "we will be able to operate the YMCA on a January to January basis and Donors Tally 36 At Bloodmobile Yates City Stop YATES CITY—Thirty-five pints of blood were drawn and 36 donors registered Wednesday when the Red Cross bloodmobile was here.

(AP) — Students boycotting newly integrated Birmingham schools tried again today to promote a walkout from other classrooms. They found some support, some resistance. A crowd of more than 400 teenagers gathered for the second day at still-segregated Phillips High School and demanded that students leave class in a sympathy protest. Some Phillips boys and girls joined the crowd, others went on to school. THERE'S NOTHING LIKE SOFT WATER • For Laundry m For Bath • for Kitchen With an ATER * SOFTEN W ER 4 Galesburg Soft Water Co. Phone 343-9068 175 N. Cherry Galesburg, III Hundreds of students stayed away from integrated West End High for the fourth day in a row. Many of those who assembled at Phillips were West End absentees. Riot-trained police forced the crowd back into a park across the street, and some students left with the announced intention to visit other schools as they did Thursday. The caravan moved on to integrated Ramsay High, but police kept the crowd from getting within a block of the school. Then, for the first time, the demonstrators visited Shades Valley High in a wealthier section of the city, and county officers let them on the school grounds. But teachers locked the doors and kept the Shades Valley students inside. Nearby, the school band practiced on a drill field, ignoring the crowd. The five Negroes admitted to West End and Ramsay high schools and Graymont Elementary all were in class. At Tuskegee, another of the four cities where schools have been desegregated, no white students showed up at the high school At Huntsville, white and Negro pupils again went to class together without incident.
