Gdlesburg Regi$ter»Mail, Gajesburj, Hi. Wednesday, June 13, 19731-41 Board of Education Okays Purchase Of New Textbooks, Hires Teachers MONMOUTH — The purchase of about $8,000 worth of new reading texts for the elemetv- tary schools in. District 38 was approved Tuesday night at the meeting of the Board, of Education. The Holt, Rinehanb & Winston reading series will be used in grades kindergarten through sixth. New teachers employed for the 1973-1974 school year are: Mrs. Rachael Kattestad, home economics at Central Junior High School; Mrs. Ruth Fernandez, third grade at Lincoln; Mrs. Jane Marshall Kellogg, fourth grade ait Lincoln; Donald Daily, elementary physical education; Mrs. Mary Ellen Porter, art at Monmouth High School; Mrs. Kafcforyn Mary Jackson, English and Latin at Monmouth High School, and Bruce Hall, science at Monmouth High School. Mrs. Kaittestad will be replacing Mrs. Judy Standard, whose resignation as home economics teacher at Central Junior High School was accepted by the board members. Contracts for the employment of Mrs. Phyllis Kettering, Mrs. Carol Haimon and Donald Tomlin as instructors at Achievement Industries were approved subject to funding by the federal Title I program. Approved for Monmouth High School extracurricular assignments were James Kuenzi, vocational co-ordinator, $300; Geoffrey Iverson, business manager, $400, and Loren Vanitreece and John L. Bickle as instructors for the summer conditioning program at $250 each. James Shunick was employed on a part-time basis in maintenance effective July 1. Superintendent Richard Flynn explained that four positions are being held open in the elementary schools until a report is received concerning whether the district will receive Title I funds. These funds have been used in the past to employ special reading teachers. If the teachers in that capacity cannot be employed with Title I funds, they will then be offered the positions being kept open. Myron Mikita was employed to take over the summer band program during July. Flynn reported to the board members that he is optimistic about the amount of state aid the district will receive for the coming school year. "Due to the current formula, we should come within about $2,000 of what we received this year." The negotiating committee agreed to meet with the teacher negotiating commLtitee July 2. "By meeting before our regular July meeting, our negotiating team should be able to present us with some firm recommendations for discussion at that time," said Flynn. Flynn was authorized to request a one-year extension for work at Monmouth High School, Willits and Garfield which needs to be done to bring the schools into compliance with the Fire Safety Code. He explained that since Willits and Garfield are to be replaced and the work required at the high school is minimal that he felt an extension of time was desirable. The board members also asked Flynn to negotiate with the Warren County YMCA concerning the cost for pool rental. The YMCA is asking $1,100 for pool rental for the 1973: - 1974; \ school year. This is $150 more';? than was paid this year m'i some of the board members'' felt the price was high. Flynn recommended and the*' board approved an increase in book rental rates next yearVy* The rate for kindergarten will, be increased $1 from $4 to $&. ' Grades one through six were increased from $10 to $12. Grades seven through 12 were ; increased $2 to $17.50 per year. Bids were accepted for lunch * delivery, garbage disposal, and J transportation of special edjUg-; cation students. The contract^ for lunch delivery was award* ed to Maple City DeUverV."] H & W Disposal won the gar-; bage disposal contract. Cava- 1 naugh Trucking and Maple City Cab will provide transpwtaition r for the special education stu-' dents.

Phone 734-4J.21 Gang Slaying Suspects Found Dead in Jail Cell PHNOM PENH (UPI) - An explosion killed two persons and destroyed a warplane on the airstrip ait Cambodia's second largest, city late Tuesday but reports conflicted today as to whether the blast' was accidental or caused by a Communist attack One of the returning journalists said today: "The first explosion was followed by massive booms as the fuel went up. The fire burned late into the, morning. Auhtorities said the two men loading the plane, a C47 gunship, were killed and the aircraft destroyed." WAUKEGAN, 111. (UPI)—Two men, held in the investigation of a series of Illinois slayings by a reputed Mau Mau gang in 1972, were found dead in their cell in the Lake County Jail today, it was reported here. Lake County sheriff's officials would confirm only that there was "some sort of trouble in the jail." But reports in neighboring Cook (Chicago) County said that the two men—Nathaniel Burse, 23, and Edward Moran Jr., 23, both of Chicago—had been strangled. Sheriff Richard Elrod of Cook County said he had sent Richard Quagliano, his assist­ ant police chief, to the Lake County Jail in an effort to get more information. "We're vitally interested, but I don't know at the moment how this might affect our cases in Cook County," he said. "We have no report yet here, but I understand the men were strangled." Burse and three others were under murder indictment in the slayings of four members of the Paul Corbett family in Barringr ton Hills in August, and Burse was indicted in the slaying of Army Spec. 5 William Richter, 23, last September. Moran also was indicted in the Richter slaying.

FTC Suit Filed Against Pyramid S&les Scheme Union President Testified Killers Assured Protection R WASHINGTON (UPI) - In the first action of its kind the government today went to court against a "pyramid" sales scheme involving a line of soap products which it said has been tricking consumers with an endless recruiting process. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that the suit was filed in San Francisco against B e s 11 i n e Products Corp., San Jose, Calif., its subsidiary Bestline Products Inc., and its board chairman, William E. Bailey. Under a cease - and - desist order issued by the FTC in 1971, which the suit contends Bestline has continued to violate, the firm was accused of recruiting salesmen who found they had to recruit other "distributors" to recoup their investment. The whole process was aimed at moving products out of the Bestline factory and not really at selling them to the ultimate consumer, one FTC official said. Bestline tries to recruit "direct distributors," frequently through classified newspaper advertisements all over the country, asking them to invest $3,700 in household and commercial soap and cleaning products allegedly worth $5,600 on the retail market. The pressure "is then on the investor to recruit other "direct distributors" so he can be elevated to the rank of "general distributor," where bonuses are earned in part on the basis of how much merchandise he enables Bestline to move from factory to distributor. Some direct distributors who couldn't sell what they bought had to liquidate their stock, "sustaining large losses," the FTC said. Many of those caught in that ! position, the FTC added, said they would never had gotten into the game except that they had been told they could sell what they bought, recruit others and make a lot of money. ERIE, Pa. (UPI) - A retired mine union president from Appalachia testified today that murder suspect Albert Pass assured him that conspirators were ready "to spend $1 million" to protect the killers of United Mine Workers reformer Joseph A. "Jock" Yablonski. Silous Huddleston of LaFollette, Tenn., one of six confessed or conyiated Yablonski killers, testified that he asked Pass for assurances of protection should the killers be captured. "He told me, 'We are prepared to spend $1 million to get you out,' " Huddleston said. "I asked him if Joe Yablonski died some other way—took sick or something—would the boys be paid. He said when the news of his death is on radio and TV that 'Prater has the money, he'll pay.' " During a discussion of how Yablonski should be killed, Huddleston said he was told by Pass: "There's only one way to do it-hunt him up and kill him." Huddleston was referring to former UMW official William J. Prater of LaFollette, who admitted Tuesday that he participated in the Yablonski murder conspiracy. He was convicted of the Yablonski murders March 26 and Tuesday was sentenced to life imprisonment. Prater agreed to testify for the state in the murder trial of Pass, another former UMW official charged in the slayings of Yablonski, his wife and daughter. In a statement read by an FBI agent during Pass' trial, Prater said former UMW President W. A. "Tony" Bovle had "nothing to do with the plan to kill Joseph Yablonski." But Prater s^id Pas9 recruited him into the murder plot, ; carried out Dec. 31, 1969, when the Yablonskis were shot to death in their Clarksville, Pa., home, three weeks after Yablonski was defeated in an election for the union presidency by Boyle, Admissions Monday: C, Oscar Nelson, Mrs. Everett Baldwin, Monmouth; Mrs. Alonzo Carpenter, Mrs. Billie Murphy, Carman.

(UPI) — After romping for 20 hours in a heavily wooded area near here, three. 1,000-pound elephants— Whimpy, Rajah and Chang—have been captured The three, who probably enjoyed their day of freedom in near-90 degree weather, were captured Tuesday by their handler, Michael Rice, who sneaked close enough to grab Whimpy by the ear. The elephants then joined in a procession, linking their tails and trunks, and were led out of the woods. The elephants, who apparently foroke their chains Monday night and headed for the New England equivalent of bush country, left a "mess" in the rural area, but otherwise caused no trouble during the period they roamed free, police said. ' "They've only been in this country three months," said Rice, who told police he stopped at a motel Monday night and chained the elephants before he was to take them to a New Hampshire park. According to Sgt. • Howard Ricker, searchers followed waste left by the elephants, who "headed in a southerly direction." turn/ Ricker said, "One fellow said he saw what appeared to be an elephant. He wasn't drinking then, but he had a, few afterwards." ; OquawkaClufys Hold Meetings OQUAWKA - Esther Pirtle, Bernice Robertson and Maribeth Essex were pro tem officers when Oquawka Rebekah JLodge met June 6.
