Hearing Slated On Zoning Area Two proposed zoning changes ran into stiff opposition at the Galesburg City Council meeting Monday night. The first involved a request by the Galesburg Clinic to rezone the lot north of the clinic on North Seminary Street and the lot west on Mississippi River Flows Half Normal Mississippi River flows in the Rock Island District are the lowest since 1956, Army engineers reported today. Lock and Dam is near Fulton reported a flow of 15,500 cubic feet per second Monday, less than half of the normal flow of 35,000 cubic feet per second for the middle of September. Lock 22 at Saverton, Mo., reported a flow of 23,000 cubic feet per second. This is also less than half of the normal flow of 48,000 cubic feet per second there for this time of the year. A falling tendency will continue this week on the Mississippi, the engineers predicted. "Queen" Upbound The "Delta Queen," last of the large passenger-carrying steamboats still traveling on the upper Mississippi River, stopped in Rock Island Friday on its annual trip to St. Paul, Minn. The big steamboat had 163 passengers. The "Queen" still makes fast time on the Mississippi River, traveling the 100 miles from Lock 15 at Rock Island to Lock No. 11 at Dubuque, Iowa, in less than 12 hours. A total of 1,768,765 tons of cargo passed through the Rock Island District during the month of August. This brings Mississippi River tonnage up to a total of 8,548,518 tons during the current navigation season. Recreation Declines Of the 12 locks in the district, which extends between Saverton, Mo., and Guttenburg, Iowa, Lock 22 at Saverton listed the highest tonnage, 1,603,950. Other locks and their tonnages in August included No. 15 at Rock Island, 1,458,395; No. 16 at Muscatine, 1,417,425; No. 17 at New Boston, 1,435,159; No. 18 at Gladstone, 1,427,500. Recreational boating last week showed a marked drop from previous weeks in the summer, despite good weather, the engineers' weekly summary noted. Many boaters store their craft for the winter after Labor Day and the beginning of school. Liner Due at Oquawka The Delta Queen, through trip excursion liner and last sternwheeler on the river, departed St. Paul, Minn., today at 6 a.rru and is scheduled to reach Lock 19 at New Boston Thursday morning. The liner is expected to pass the Oquawka area Thursday after 9 a.m. en route to Nauvoo, where it is slated for a telegraph and mail stop in the afternoon. Carl Hollingsworth of Galesburg boarded the liner Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Lock 18, Gladstone, for a ride to Rock Island on its trip north. Grove Street to a C-l classification. This would permit the 4-doctor clinic to expand its present facilities and build a, parking lot. Robert C. Stoerzbach, attorney for the clinic, requested action on the proposal to allow the clinic to begin construction before winter. The clinic already owns the properties. The houses presently on the tracts would be moved, and the lot to the north would be primarily a parking area. Aid. Donald Nelson said he favored general hospitals, such as Cottage and St. Mary's, over what he called "branch hospitals, which are clinics." He said x- rays and minor surgery can be performed at the clinics, which hurt the hospitals, and the hospitals are "hurting" to make ends meet." Aid. Homer Zumwalt said this was a case of spot zoning, which he opposed. Mayor Robert Cabeen reiterated his stand on the proposal by saying it is the duty of the council to protect residents in that area who cannot afford or are not willing to have an attorney appear each time such a case comes up. "I do not oppose expansion of the clinic, but I speak for the.other residents," he said. The decision on the change was carried over, pending a public hearing on the matter set for Oct. 18. At stake in the hearing will be commercialization of that area. ' Opposition to the second proposal came from the residents in the area of Clay and Farnham streets and north of the Peoria branch of the Burlington tracks. Weller Home Construction had requested reclassification of its property in that area from R-1A to R-1B, which lowers the area of the lots from 10,000 square feet to 7,500 square feet. The home owners in that area said this would tend to lower the property valuation of their homes, all built on 10,000-square-foot lots. They said they had little chance for proper representation at last night's meeting because they had not been aware of the proposal until reading about it Saturday. This zoning change was also carried over, but no definite date for consideration was set. Bids Opened On Streets And Supplies Gunther Construction Co. was awarded a contract by the City Council Monday night to resurface the Public Square at a cost of $28,369.55. The project will be financed through motor fuel tax funds. In other bids, the Gunther firm was awarded the contract for the maintenance of arterial streets at a cost of $27,286.47. Builders Supply Co. was given a $2,190 contract to provide supplies for the maintenance of the same streets. This project is also to be financed through motor fuel taxes. The council also accepted the bid of $6,540 from M. P. Schttel- ler and Associates Inc. to provide a 300-horse-power motor for the pump at the Oquawka water pumping station. The city will purchase a blue line printing machine from Tri- City Blue Print Co., whose bid was $1,590. For snow removal, the council accepted the bid of Gunther Construction Co. to provide a truck and driver at $13.11 per hour straight time. Swank Bros, was awarded a contract to spread sand and salt at $12 an hour, and Cargill Inc. was given the contract to provide rock salt at $11.25 per ton. In other business, Chappel Avenue from Baird to Grand avenues was annexed to the city, Lots 15 and 16 in Block 4 of the Race Track Addition were annexed and "Yield" signs were authorized on Grove Street at Cherry Street. A change in meters on the east side of South Prairie Street just south of Simmons Street was approved. The first meter south of Simmons will be a 12-minute meter, and the next two will be one-hour meters. Presently they are all two-hour meters. A public hearing will be set for the next council meeting Sept. 30 on requests from Grace Episcopal and Covenant churches to operate nurseries and kindergartens. A letter from W. K. Weeber, regional engineer and acting regional, health officer of the Illinois Department of Health, was read. Weeber proposed a meeting of members of his office and interested officials' in Galesburg concerning improvement of Lake Storey swimming facilities. City Manager Thomas Herring said a meeting will be scheduled in the near future. Strawberry Patch Produces Late Yields, VICTORIA — A resident of Victoria is picking fresb strawberries for the table. A patch in the garden at the residence of Mrs. Phealty Pyles is producing its second yield this year. The first yield was picked in June. Heavy rainfall in recent days is believed to have helped along the, second crop. She said the berries in the second crop are not as sweet as the ones harvested in June. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!

I ^IIUIIIIU.11 .IBL.iLlllllUJ 11.1111 II .. emty~, fa yourmoughty Deat Penny, 1 am a widower, 2* years of age; and I have a problem. I would like to be married again to give my child a mother and also for companionship. I have a hard time finding a nice girl he- cause they either think 1 am still married or arc wary of going. out with someone who has been married. What can 1 do to overcome this problem? THANK YOU Dear Thank You, Just be a little more patient. Word will soon get around that you are alone and available. Any wise girl will be wary of getting serious about a man who has a child. This is quite a responsibility for any young woman to undertake. When the right girl does come along, together you will be able to work things out. Just one other suggestion. Instead of marrying the first girl who comes along who will raise your child and give you companionship, look around for a girl you can respect and most of all, Love. At twenty, you have your whole adult life before you, and you'll find that a marriage for convenience sake can be pretty deadly. Dear Penny, Last weekend my sister and her husband and children come to visit us. She has a little boy that is a first-class hellion, and during one of her exasperated moments, she asked mc what I would do with him. Without thinking, I said I would give him a good spanking. Well! That was the wrong thing (o say. She and her husband both lit into mc and told be that only a sadist would hit a child; that spanking destroys a child's spirit; that anyone who knew anything about child psychology would never spank; and on and on. They left in a huff,.and I would like to know whether it is required that I write and apologize. SPANKING MOTHER Dear Spanking Mother, No, it isn't required that you write and apologize. But for the sake of family harmony, I would say it is high on the suggested list. It really isn't a question of who is right, it's a question of whether it's really worth all the hard feelings. Most eminent child phycholog- ists now acknowledge that the era of "permissiveness" netted nothing but confusion for both child and parents. Many of them will also agree that a spanking as a last resort can often work wonders on a child's behavior. But you can't raise someone else's child. As long as you have to put up with the little monster only on occasions, grin and bear it, and sit on your hands when your palm itches! Dear Penny, I just started at Galesburg High School after going to a small high school my first year. The first day of school 1 had stage fright so badly I could hardly make my feet move. It seems so big and the kids seem so unfriendly. 1 have been there a week now, and I don't feel like I've made a single friend. Do you have any idea for a homesick small town girl? P. L. Dear P. L., There were about 600 other kids who had stage fright those first few days. While it's true that it is hard to come into a new school and you may feel way out of things for a while, everything should begin to look brighter any day. You will of course, soon come to know the kids who are in your classes and have their lockers near you. It is also a good idea to join one or two extracurricular groups. Just remember to keep a cheery smile on your face and don't be afraid to say "Hi" first to a face that looks familiar. Behind that face may lurk stage fright worse than yours.! Thinking of you . . .

(UPI)-A strongly worded civil rights resolution was passed Monday by the Presbytery of Springfield—representing members of Presbyterian churches in central Illinois. The resolution demanded "enforcement of law and order as first of all having to do with the safe-guarding of lives, personal dignity and property of Negroes and other minority groups." The resolution also said action was necessary "in view of the many extreme actions of murder and property destruction which have been committed against Negroes by lawless and unprincipled citizens and even some representatives of government." The resolution called upon "our senators and representatives in Congress to pass effective civil rights legislation as soon as possible, certainly before the end of this session of Congress." Fines Imposed in Court at Alpha ALPHA — Two motorists were imposed fines in the court of George W. Kelly, Alpha police magistrate, after speeding charge hearings Monday. Arrests were by state troopers. Each fine $5 and costs, they were Paul H. Irion, 41, of Alpha, and Culver N. Neiberger, 65, of Canton. sion and lost his post when he accused some state Republicans of being anti-Negro, spoke at a meeting of the City Club of Chicago. He said the organization, which he said is ready to start with "Republicans, Democrats and Independents," would be called For Better Illinois Government. The group would be "the focus for public knowledge and the springboard for public dialogue," Maremont said. The public, he said, is "confused" about what state revenues are really needed because of the often-conflicting efforts of special interest groups. "Everybody but the people" has its own special interest group, Maremont said. The Retailer's Association, the Taxpayer's Federation, the Farm Bureau, the Illinois Agricultural Association, the highway lobby, the truckers, the railroads, and insurance com panies all are or have their own special interest groups, he said. "What about us?" Maremont asked. "Who's cutting through all New Hours Begin At City Library New hours at the Galesburg Public Library Hours began Monday.

"We constantly hear talk about our fiscal crisis," ho said. "We lave no fiscal crisis." He said Illinois has "failed to raise the revenues needed" because the public is uninformed about real fiscal needs and is told what revenue is needed by conflicting special interest groups "until we're confused." The Chicago Motor - Club and the Parent-Teacher Association "arc at opposite poles" on the use of gasoline tax monies for educational purposes, Maremont said. Some people belong to both organizations, he said. "Who represents you in that fight? Your money is being used to fight for both sides, but how can you have it both ways?" As a businessman, Maremont said, "I would be the first to ex pect and to drive for economics in government as I do in business." The proposed organization, he said, would concentrate on the "priorities in Illinois and the revenue to meet those priorities." READ THE WANT ADS!
