The promise of a new home was the biggest item on a growing gift list for Andrew Fischer, 38, a $76-a-wcek grocery clerk, and his wife, Mary Ann, 30. The Curtis Publishing Co. announced it had bought publication rights to pictures and stories of the Fischer family. Live on Outskirts The Fischers and their other five children have been living in a five-bedroom two-story stucco house two miles out of Aberdeen. Fischer also has rented some barns and a few acres so he could keep two milk cows. Dr. James N. Berbos, the general practitioner who delivered the quints, told newsmen after his midnight visit that he has not decided when Mrs. Fischer will return home. He said earlier that she was being held in the hospital because of the excitement and hectic activities that surely will surround her when she does leave. "The quints are all getting along good," he said. "Their milk formula has been increased. The boy (James Andrew) is very hungry and is getting nearly two teaspoons of formula and some sugar water. "Mary Catherine and Mary Margaret also are very hungry," he said. "They get a little less than a teaspoon." Boy Most Active E. C. Pieplow, president of the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce and a family spokesman, said in a news conference Wednesday night that James Andrew was the most active of the five. "He really lets you know he's a boy," Pieplow said. "He got his foot caught over a plastic partition in his isolette. It was nothing serious. "Baby 'B' the second-born, (Mary Magdalene) turned over on her stomach on her own accord. This was a muscular feat." Pieplow said he has had offers of land, blueprints, work, lumber and other materials and interior furnishings for the new house. It will be built to the Fischers' specifications.

To Dedicate Sandbar; Host House Kerner Enthusiastic Over Junket to Promote Exports CHICAGO (UPD-Minois Gov. Otto Kerner, taking advantage of the pre-election lull leaves for Europe next month to whoop it up for one of his favorite loves- Illinois exports aboard. Kerner, described by a trade official as "pursuing exports like a pirate chases gold," will visit England, France and Germany to acquaint Illinois manufacturers with the foreign markets available to them. He leaves Oct. 17. For three weeks, Kerner and 140 businessmen will visit European capitals in hopes of bringing home overseas orders for the varied industries of Illinois. The trip will be privately financed. Neil C. Hurley Jr., chairman of the National Export Expansion Council, recently described the former Cook County jurist as "the nation's front runner in promoting overseas business for his state." Hurley visited Kerner in his RECORDS LINDSTROM'S Top Five 1. BLUE VELVET —Bobby Vinton 2. MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK —Angels 3. HELLO MUPDAH, HELLO FADOUH —Allan Sherman 4.

The "walkup" tag stems from the fact the elevator goes only to the 20th floor. In a report in a Commerce Department publication, Hurley described his conversation with Kerner, and concluded that to him, the governor was a "tornado of a guy." Hurley said Kerner views world commerce as the only really big expansion for United States manufacturers. "Ninety-five per cent of every exported United States product has some portion made in Illinois" Kerner told Hurley. "Export is not a brambly issue. Five-hundred thousand people in Illinois have jobs because of overseas trade. Downstate is beginning to make real progress. Fifteen per cent of our manufacturers export something but our goal is one in four. We are doing something about it; we are creating jobs, enlarging companies and making work for Illinois citizens. If successful, we may gain 250,000 new jobs. Sure, we are interested in export." Kerner is not the first person lo go after foreign markets. The Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry has been doing it for metropolitan Chicago since 1903 and in 1962 received one of the first 10 "E" for export awards from President Kennedy for its export activity. But, the association said, Kerner is the first Illinois governor to expound on Illinois exports on a statewide basis. READ THE WANT ADS!

Heart Ills Reviewed for Kiwanis Club Want Personal Advice Write To enn Own Galesburg's Penny for your thoughts appears every Tuesday and Friday in the Galesburg Register-Mail Kiwanis Club President Russell Gehring announced today that a three-man delegation will represent the local club at the Illinois- Eastern Iowa District convention Sept. 29-Oct. 1 in Peoria. Making the trip will be Ted Stewart, John Herron and Gehring, Appearing at the convention will be James M. Moler, a trustee of Kiwanis International. He is from Charleston, W .Va., and is the coordinator of educational services and development at Shepherd College and the West Virginia Department of Education. Local Kiwanis Club members heard Dr. Fred Stansbury review the causes of this nation's number one killer, heart disease, Wednesday at the Hotel Custer. Defects of Two Types Congenital heart defects are of two types, he told them. The obvious kind is apparent at birth in the "blue baby" condition. The others are more subtle and are noted later in life. Rheumatic fever can cause valve impairment, and other diseases such as syphilis can also cause heart trouble, he said. But many of the congenital and acquired defects can now be repaired through surgery, Dr. Stansbury said, and techniques are continually being improved. Coronary Most Common Coronary heart disease is the most common form of heart trouble, he continued. It stems from hardening of the arteries, and is most prevalent among middle-aged persons. Coronary attacks occur when the arteries are narrowed because of age and deposits of cholesterol in artery walls. When the artery is- finally closed, circulation to the heart is blocked and a heart attack occurs. The attacks usually occur when the individual is resting. Angina pectoris, although not as serious as a coronary, often foretells more serious trouble, Dr. Stansbury said. These attacks usually occur when a person is exercising. Cholesterol, the villain in coronaries, is influenced by a person's emotions, excessive srriok ing, and foods rich in animal fats. Dr. Stansbury advised adults to reduce their intake of fats, and for those with coronary disease to reduce or quit smoking entirely because it tends to decrease the size of blood vessels. • ™ .'!iy ;"fr /^'ir'^'!ri !p;;''M .;"'^^'*^r"^ CONDUCT SPRAYING OPERATION—Ken Russell, district fish biologist, and Richard Duff, watching the barrel as they spray rotenonc on the western edge of Lake Storey Wednesday.

Many expressed disappointment in the operation because the fish were not visible; but Ken Russell, district fish biologist, said today tests made just before noon make the treatment appear a success. Russell conducted a half-hour electrical shocking operation to compart, the number of fish in the lake after the rotenone treatment with the number collected last spring in a shock-test. After the operation, Russell said he collected 25 gizzard shad. Last spring in 10 minutes, 100 gizzard shad were counted, and there were too many others to collect. Pick Up Bass "Everything looks real good," he said. "We also, picked up a good supply of largemouth bass," he said. This shows that the rotenone did not affect the bass population. This was the primary reason for using rotenone in the mixture applied yesterday. Russell and his co-workers mixed one part of rotenone with 10 million parts of water. It was hoped that because the gizzard shad are more susceptible to the chemical than the bass or panfish, this concentration would kill the rough fish only, and according to Russell's tests, he says this is what happened. But most of the dead fish sank, Russell said. Many of them will come to the surface in about three days, but others never will. Several assist Russell was aided in the spraying operations yesterday by Leo Rock and Joe Bystry, state fish biologists, and Leon Quails and Richard Duff and Robert Ericson. Three boats were used in the operation, and after a half-hour wait, the fish were jumping and floating. This kind of operation was recommended by Russell to work hand-in-hand with lowering the lake. Here's the way the two work together: The lake is stratified, and oxygen supports fishlife in only the top 10 feet of water. Thus this volume of water, rather than the entire amount of water, was used to determine the amount of rotenone needed— 30 gallons. Other- This treatment will strike hardest at the gizzard shad, but will kill some other fish such as perch, blue gills and crappie. Then the lake will be lowered beginning today, by cutting sections out of the dam at the western edge of the lake. Concrete saws and air hammers are being used for this process. Draw-Down to Follow Some 250 million gallons of water will be drained out of the lake, which will reduce the total acreage of the lake drastically. (Presently the lake is 130 acres). This will force the stunted pan fish, which make fishing miserable, out of the shallow areas into the deeper water where largemouth bass and other predators can clean them up. Also the draining operation will put more fish into a smaller area during the winter months, and this will cause a higher mortality rate. But next spring when the lake returns to its present dimensions, the flooded area will offer new food to such fish as bluegills. Russell points out that' this will allow a tremendous spawn, also permit them to grow bigger, and that it is easier to catch a fish feeding well than to hook a stunted one. Both operations will be carried out the next two consecutive autumns also. This will cover the three-year life span of the gizzard shad. . City Manager Thomas Herring feet of water will be drained from the lake in successive stages until the six- to eight-foot drop is reached. The top hole cut'in the dam is about eight feet wide and two feet deep on a vertical plane, and the successive ones will be smaller. The reinforcing bars in the dam will be cut, but stubs will remain to allow new ones to be welded on after the draining. Then the concrete will be poured. Herring said that this procedure will keep the dam a continuous mass, rather than patchwork. Open House Set Sunday at AndoverHome The Lutheran Home for Children at Andover will hold open house next Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served throughout the afternoon.
