Friday, June 22, 1973 New Bids on Construction of Two Monmouth Schools Under Ceiling MONMOUTH - Construction of new schools at Garfield and Willits cbuld begin by the middle of August, according to Richard Flynn, superintendent of District 38. Flynn said today that three bids'opened by the Capitol Development Board (CPB) at Springfield Thursday were all under the established maximum for general contruction work on the new schools. The CPB is expected to award the general contract to one of the three bidders by July 8. The determining factor as to which firm will receive the contract depends on the lowest bids made for alternate work which was included in the specifications. Flynn said bids were accepted from Carl Nelsftn, Burlington; William Housewright, LaHarpe, and the Galesburg Construction Co. The price, range oh the acceptable bids ranged from $518,395-$520,600. This was the second bid opening by CPB for construction of the two new schools. At the first bid opening May 9, the bids exceeded the maximum amount allowable by 4.1 per cent, or $27,000. , At the time the first bids were opened CPB decided to hold the bids received for the electrical, plumbing, heating and ventilating work. The Galesburg architectural firm of Weber, Griffith and Mel- (lican, which is supervising the building of the schools, then reworked the specifications in [order to try to get a general contracting bid that would be acceptable.

This item was then entered as an alternate, and was one of eight offered. Flynn said that it now appears that most of the alternates may be returned to the final construction plans. When construction is started, the new classroom portion of Willits will be built around the newer part of the building, and then the old part of the school will be razed to permit the addition of an all - purpose room. At Garfiejd, the contractors will i simply build a new school on the site and then tear down the one in present use. CPB has agreed to_ construct iiiiiiiMiU 'iiiiiihiiiii I;I J;i I'I'I.

Members are asked MONMOUTH — John Burke, associate director of the Illinois CROP program was in Monmouth recently to discuss world hunger at meetings of the local Lions, Rotary, Exchange and Kiwanis clubs. Burke told the local club members that 2.5 million people in the world may face serious hunger problems if immediate steps are not taken to prevent it. Burke said that only 1.3 perl cent of the money spent for breign aid actually arrives in nations to assist their hunger and production needs. He said about 86 per cent of foreign aid is spent in our own country. He showed slides of a recent visit to Haiti to illustrate how the CROP program conducted by the Church World Service agency takes and distributes food, clothing, tools, and seeds to people in Haiti and other countries of the world. "Time is too short," he said, "the problems are too serious. CROP offers a way to do something about it. Some of the ways are by direct canvass, hunger walks, and by coin cards."

The funds were included in a $4.1 billion money bill covering the State, Justice and Commerce departments and the judiciary. The over-all figure, however, was a cut of nearly $85 million from President Nixon's budget requests for those agencies. The cuts included $13.4 million from the State Depart­ ment budget request, $28.2 million from Justice and $11.7 million from Commerce. The rest of the cuts were spread over several smaller agencies. The committee noted without comment that it was granting the administration's full budget request for the FBI, which includes $3.2 million for equipment for the new FBI building now under construction. The agency has been buffeted by criticism since L. Patrick Gray III, acting director who succeeded the late J. Edgar Hoover, resigned after admitting lie destroyed documents relating to the Watergate affair. Brezhnev's U.S. visit, and Russian video reporting of it, NBC-TV says it is "providing all the studio facilities and support to the Soviet State Committee for Radio and Television Broadcasting to implement its coverage — for broadcast to the Soviet Union."
