Said Carpentier, "Republicans are known for going straight down the line." "We know that the Democrats go in all directions, not knowing where they're going and not knowing where they've been." Hits Daley's Hole Carpentier said "We have witnessed three years of vacillation in Springfield and failure of the governor to be forthright." He took Gov, Otto Kerner to task, saying he vetoed both good and bad bills passed by the 1963 Legislature. But every veto made by the present administration was made by the man who is his (Kerner's) boss—Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago," Carpentier said. He said continuation of the Kerner administration would mean "only more solidification of the boss control line from Chicago." Carpentier then vented his displeasure with Washington. He said the nation's farmers showed their dissatisfaction when they rejected the 1963 wheat referendum. He said President Kennedy's administration had failed "in every area in which government ought to function." "Democrat Day" at the plowing competition has Agriculture Sec- L.

One of the most significant of the reforms indicated by the Pope will be the addition of members of the Roman Catholic hierarchy from many lands in greater numbers to the Curia, which now is dominated largely by Italians. Wants More Resnonsc He also told the Curia members that they will have to be more responsive to the spirit of the Second Vatican Council, which reconvenes Sept, 29, and also pay more obedience to what the pontiff wished. The reform of the Curia was considered of great importance by observers. It could mean tremendous changes within the adminis- ration of the church — although dogma and matters of faith and morals would remain the same. The move to streamline the Curia was considered another momentous step to bring the Roman Catholic Church in line with the space age. It was considered on a par with the activities of the council itself, which has as one of its main aims an internal adjustment of the church. man. Members of the society earlier expressed disapproval of the Knoxville site before members of a BO-member Knox County Nursing Home Citizens Committee on Sept. 3 voted in favor of the Knoxville location. Objections raised by the physicians to the Knoxville location have been based mainly on its distance from fully equipped hospitals. They said locating it near one or the other of the Galesburg general hospitals would mean better care for the nursing home patients. At the Sept. 3 meeting of the citizens' committee, Robert O. Johnson, Knox County superintendent of the Public Aid Department, said few Galesburg physiciaans go to the nursing home at Knoxville and that the work falls for the most part on the three physicians at Knoxville. Cites Economy at Knoxville Mrs. Cornelia Johnson of Oneida, chairman of the sites subcommittee of the citizens' group, said the Knoxville site was selected after lengthy investigation and that an undetermined amount of money could be saved by building it there and utilizing some existing facilities such as the water tower and sewer connections. Other members of the committee expressed doubt that a county-wide bond referendum could pass if it proposed a Galesburg location. Galesburg Chamber of Commerce representatives have queried the committee about the possibility of using the area now occupied by the old Senior High School building, but the consensus expressed was that it did not offer enough space. The area has been proposed for clearance under an urban renewal program, and the application is pending. The citizens' committee, appointed early this year by the Knox County Board of Supervisors, has recommended a bond referendum not later than next April, and details are currently under study. Tentative plans call for a 20O-bed institution, and cost has been estimated at about $1.8.

Maxwell Taylor to fly to Saigon next week to review the military situation in South Vietnam. McNamara and Taylor, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, will make a firsthand study of effort aeainst the the military communist against Vietcong guerrillas and American military aid to the government of Ngo Dinh Diem. Kennedy has said on several occasions that he does not believe it would be wise to cut off aid to South Vietnam but he also has expressed the view that the government there has lost touch with its people and cannot win the anticommunist guerrilla war without changes in policies and personnel. McNamara and Taylor were expected to leave Washington for Saigon on Monday. They will remain in South Vietnam for about a week. Whatever recommendations they bring back to Kennedy will have a major bearing on the extent of future American collaboration with the Diem government. between American and that of diminishing, hope to Coast. Guard Says Sailor Sank Cutter Italy summer to visit ma birthplace and boyhood home. Having emigrated to this country some 40 years ago, Prina noted few changes in his former home town other than the fact that it had decreased in population from 1.700 persons to 400. This change was due to Italy's becoming more industrialized, causing an exodus of the population to urban areas he said. Contrasts standard of living Italy are rapidly and it is the Italians' have a standard comparable to America's in another 25 years. Prina noted that there is full employment in Northern Italy and that the Italians are enjoying unprecedented prosperity. Get 16 Holidays For the worker, pay is considerably lower than the U.S. scales. But the prices also are lower, even on American food products, which are widely distributed in Italy, Prina said. Sixteen paid holidays are enjoyed by the people annually, and it is customary for workers to receive an extra month's pay at the end of each year, Prina stated. Personal taxes are paid only in the year an item is purchased and really amounts to a sales tax. Income taxes are negligible and adequate pensions are given by the government to all men age 60 and women at age 50, he said,. Housing is low priced and well built. In spite of these advantages Italy has a long way to come to eqiial America's scale of living, Prina said. Prina was introduced hy Don Bivens, program chairman.

Businessman Is First Convicted Under 1951 Law CHICAGO (AP) - A Felony Court judge has fined an Evanston businessman in what the judge said was the first case tried under a 1951 law concerning advertising by strikebound firms. Judge Daniel J. Ryan assessed a $100 fine Friday against Nelson Johnson, 58, for violating a statute prohibiting struck businesses from advertising for help without mentioning that a strike is on. Johnson, owner of Nelson Johnson Tree Experts, Inc., was convicted in June of placing the illegal help-wanted ad in a Chicago newspaper. At the time the ad was placed, the court held, the firm was hampered by a strike of members of the Teamsters Union. The statute was passed to protect job seekers from strike violence, Judge Ryan said.
