First Report Tuesday on United Fund First report meeting for six divisions of the Knox County United Fund agencies will be held Tuesday at 12:15 p.m. at the Custer Inn. This is to be a joint session with the Lions Club. The public phase of the campaign to raise $182,300 for 11 United Fpnd agencies got under way last Tuesday with some 300 volunteers and campaign leaders attending the kickoff dinner. Initial gifts and corporate divisions began their drives Sept. 17. A contribution of $7,650 by the employes of Gates Rubber Co. was announced at the kickoff dinner. This was preceded by earlier contributions of $6,300 from Gale Products and $1,400 by Intra State Telephone Co. Campaign authorities are urging the use of the "fair share" plan of giving. This means an hour's pay per month for em­ ployes and one per cent of annual income for executive, supervisory and professional personnel. The campaign will conclude Oct. 24. Carolyn D. Mitchell, 21, of near Oneida, driver of the other auto involved, were listed in fairly good condition this noon at Cottage Hospital. Budd told ambulance attendants that he met Brown at the Parkway Restaurant and both headed northeast on U.S. 34 toward Oneida. The accident occurred about one mile south of Oneida. Hit Head-on Budd's car swerved over the highway dividing line hitting the oncoming auto hcadon, according to State Trooper Kenneth Martin who investigated the accident. Miss Mitchell reported she was following a car in front of her when she saw Budd attempting to pass a car in front of him. Noticing the first oncoming car ahead of him Budd pulled back to his side until the vehicle passed. He then attempted to pass the car in front of him again and tried it twice before colliding with the Mitchell car, according to Miss Mitchell. Budd's car, a foreign compact model, was totally demolished, and the wreckage was thrown to the north side of the highway. Martin said no charges have yet been filed. Budd is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Owen Budd, 1184 Bateman St. Brown was pronounced dead on arrival at Cottage Hospital. He was the son of Henry C. Brown, of Galesburg, who operated the Oldsmobile agency here for 20 years until his death Dec. 16, 1957. Miss Mitchell was reported to have incurred severe facial cuts, bruises and shock. Budd complained of pain in the knee and had bruises and abrasions, according to a First and Puckett ambulance attendant. The fatality rate of Knox County has kept climbing at a grim pace this year, with 18 dead thus far this year, compared with 11 in all of 1962 and 14 in 1961.

Five Presbyterian Churches In Monmouth Study Merger MONMOUTH—Some 1,600 Presbyterians in Monmouth will vote by secret ballot Sunday, Oct. 27, on a proposal to unite their five United Presbyterian churches. Separate elections will be held in each of the five churches. The number of churches voting to merge will determine how many will unite, Dr. Allen Mor Birth Record Mr. and Mrs. Donald A, Pollak of Chicago are the parents of a son, Matthew Scott, born Oct. 3. Mrs. Pollak is the former Betty Barnstead. Maternal grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. John Barnstead, 531 Day St. rill of Monmouth College, chair man of the uniting church com' mittee, said. For example, if two vote yes, two will unite, he said. A plan to merge the five churches was formulated about a year ago, Dr. Morrill said. A proposal to merge Grace and Second United Prcsbyteiian churches about five years ago was defeated. Going on the basis that the five churches merge, the church with the largest facilities, would be utilized for worship services, he said. This church would be determined by the uniting committee. Ninth Avenue United Presbyterian Church would be used as a Sunday school center, he stated. During the past several months, the committee has been studying the organizational plans for the proposed church with particular attention being given to the areas of Christian education; use of building and facilities, and the structure of the official board ahd other church groups. Too many Presbyterian churches in Monmouth was given as the. reason by Dr. Morrill for the proposed merger. No name for the new church, if the merger is approved, has been decided upon, he said.

Illinois Grange Delegates Act on New Resolutions By JOHN ZAKAMAN Resolution! regarding foreign aid, schooli, USDA dairy products, mourning doves and insurance com. panies were approved in Galesburg this morning bv del*, gates to the Illinois Orange convention. 1 ^ w * Fifty-five resolutions were presented to the 300 delegates from throughout [ • • ••—• the state who were sched uled to conclude the 4-day meeting this afternoon. Delegates were still voting at noon and no complete tally could be made as to how many of the resolutions Review of Urban Renewal Program on Council Slate READ THE CLASSIFIEDS! Demands by municipal employe unions and a review of progress under Urban Renewal are among 28 items slated for consideration by the Galesburg City Council Monday night. Two of the employe demands will be resented in the form of resolutions requested by aldermen who met earlier in the week with representatives of police, firemen and municipal unions. Aldermen were reported to have agreed to the two resolutions, which would authorize the city to pay the entire cost of employes' health insurance and provide severance pay to employes. Urban Repewal Progress The review of work done under Urban Renewal will come about three weeks before a rough draft of the project is made public. Joseph E. West, director of Knox County fusing Authority, said the draft is expected by Oct. 20, after survey and planning work on the downtown areas to be affected is completed. The city is currently awaiting certification of its Urban Renewal program by the federal government, which also has yet to approve a Housing Code approved by the City Council recently. If the code does not meet standards of the Federal Housing and Home Finance Agency, Work on the second phase of the Urban Renewal program vould be delayed until the code won approval. Area to be affected by Urban Renewal has not been pinned down definitely, but it roughly embraces property bounded on the north by Ferris Street, on the south by Tompkins, on the west by Cedar and on the east by Cherry. Cost of land clearance, relocations and other expenses in the area involved was estimated at about $1 million by Carl Landine of Chicago, who is consultant to the Knox County Housing Authority. Landine has said that if the city provides $73,000, the balance can be financed with federal aid and by redevelopers of the area. Extra Insurance Costs If resolutions for municipal employe salary and fringe benefits are approved, the city would absorb an additional $2.56 per employe per month — a total of $5,643 per year — in added insurance costs. The 2-week severance pay on retirement comes only after a minimum of 20 years' service. Demands for longevity pay and sick leave benefits for city em­ ployes have not been approved by aldermen. In other business slated for the council meeting, aldermen will consider resolutions to increase wattage of street lights on Mulberry Street from Seminary to Grand; to authorize certain amendments to airport leases as requested by the Federal Aviation Agency: to provide for construction of permanent street surface on Rock Island Avenue from Fremont Street to Yates Street with MFT funds, and to approve state highway division plans to improve the intersection of Henderson and Main streets. Ordinances on the agenda deal with authorization of "yield" signs on West Street at Tompkins Street and on North Street at Columbus Avenue, and "no parking" zones at Henderson and Main streets as recommended by the state. Three annexations will be put on first ordinance. They involve the areas: Grand Avenue from east city limits to East Avenue and East Avenue from Grand Avenue to McMasters Avenue; Elm Street, Walnut Street, part of North Street and part of Pennsylvania Avenue, and several properties on Elm Street, WaJniK Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Votes were mostly unanimous with few divided opinions, according to Wesley Nelson, master of the Henderson Grove grange, host of the event. Delegates voted to cooperate with other groups to bring the foreign aid program down to "a more realistic figure, as a better accounting can be made of its distribution and benefits." Cost of the program has reached the point of great proportions, the resolutions said, and some of the money distributed can go to places "where it actually works against us. On the subject of schools state Grange delegates suggested that elementary and secondary schools in the state receive part of their money for operation from a tax based on net income as determined by the Internal Revenue Service. The Grange also went on record opposing the use of a wire service by the United States Department of Agriculture. "It is another case of using taxpayers' money to compete with private business and political intrusion into both freedom of the press and free enterprise," the resolution read. The grange will use its influence to urge that Daylight Saving Time be terminated each year on the second Sunday of September. The time at present is terminated the last Sunday in October. This is because most summer vacations are completed by Labor Day and children, especially in rural areas wait for and board buses before daylight during Daylight Saving Time. Legislation which would give the Secretary of Agriculture authority to limit total dairy product imports to the 1962 level will be supported by the Grange. The dairy farmer is faced with increased pressure from dairy exporting nations as a result of common market policy, Grange delegates complained. The killing of morning doves is the most serious legalized betrayal of basic principles of animal husbandry game management, according to the Grange. "We propose that the doves be placed on a list of fully protected song birds by legislative acts," they urged. Grange delegates also voted to support efforts to force insurance companies to pay full benefits to each policy holder, regardless of how many policies he holds. Some insurance companies at present pro rate benefits to policy holders when more than one policy is carried. A resolution entered by the Turkey Hill Grange, St. Clair County, which says that the Defense Department should be charged with a portion of the cost of government grain storage, was approved. 'Four Freedoms' Just Rhetoric, Says Educator The "Four Freedoms" of Franklin Delano Roosevelt "are not freedoms at all," according to Dr. Benjamin A. Rogge, professor of economics at Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Ind., who will speak at Knox College convocation next Tuesday, Rogge was invited to Knox by the Young Conservative Club to give his address on "The Case for Economic Freedom" The public has been invited to the program, which begins at 11 a. m. in Knox Theatre. The dean claims the Roosevelt "freedoms" were only "rhetorical devices to persuade people to give up some of their true freedoms."
