Economist Tackles Drift To Socialism Hog Cholera Is Diagnosed In Henry County Dr. Paul B. Doby, superintendent, Division of Livestock Industry, reported hog cholera has been diagnosed in Henry County. Twenty-two outbreaks were reported in Illinois during October. This is the fourth outbreak reported in Henry County during 1963. The field investigation of this outbreak, by Dr. Keith Ludwig, hog cholera diagnostician, indicates loss of 13 animals to date. Dr. Ludwig stressed importance of care in preventing exposure of swine to hog cholera. Unvaccinated swine should not be exposed to animals that have been vaccinated less than two weeks or swine that have recently moved through swine concentration areas.

DON'T Hit* THI AWAHO'WINVIM* "«AMV MOOR! •HOW" t TUMQAV NIQHTS « Q»»-TVI An Indiana professor of economics warned Knox College students and faculty members today against socialization of America, and gave reasons why he favored the system of free enterprise. Dr. Benjamin A. Rogge, dean and professor of economics at Wabash College, spoke at a convocation in Knox Theatre, sponsored by the Young Conservatives. Playing down the theoretical aspects of the free enterprise system, Rogge said the most important part of the argument favoring it is its consistency with fundamental moral principles of! life itself. ; "The central value is individual freedom. By freedom I mean exactly and only freedom from coercion by others," he said. This freedom does not mean those offered by Franklin D. Roosevelt, Rogge said, charging that these "freedoms" were only rhetorical devices used to entice people into giving up true freedom. He went on to say that he believes each individual is responsible for what happens to him, although he is influenced by heredity, environment, subconscious and chance. This contrasts with the new concept of man which reflects Freudian psychology and sociology, he said. Rogge told the Siwashers that he would prefer the free enterprise system even if it were much less efficient than other concepts because of the idea of freedom. Continuation of economic freedom is based on the masses of the country accepting its basic morality, Rogge said. Few citizens understand the purely theoretical aspects of an economic system, but they can understand if it fits in with their overall ideas on life. Rogge said this was the most persuasive argument for free enterprise in his mind, but emphasized that only the people can make it continue to work. Turning to socialism, Rogge said "government intervention in a private enterprise economy poses a threat also to non-economic freedoms." These interventions threaten a cornerstone of aU freedoms — equality before the law. He said farmers and trade union members are encouraged to do things for which businessmen are penalized, such as acting collusively to manipulate prices. The Goddess of Justice must now peek at a man before the bench and say, "First tell me who you are, and then 111 tell you what your rights are," Rogge said. The case for free enterprise does not rest with its buildings or consumer goods, Rogge said, but rather on its consistency with man's nature, protection it gives to man's integrity, and on the basic morality of the system of rewards and punishments. Although the free market cannot produce a perfect world, it allows each imperfect man to seek his own way — enjoying the pleasure of success and the sorrow of errors. "This freedom is what it means to be a man." City Accepts Two Bids on Equipment Among four bids approved by the Galesburg City Council Monday night was one dealing with the purchase of new furniture for the municipal airport terminal building. The council accepted a $690 bid by Wilkinson's Office Supplies and Equipment for IS seating units which come in sections. The units are made of steel with different colored foam rubber seats, matching furniture there at present. City Manager Thomas Herring said present furniture at the airport is insufficient and an appropriation has been made in the budget for additional units. Patrons many times have no place to sit while waiting for planes. The council also accepted $428 bid by Price Brothers, Dayton, Ohio, for a tapping saddle assembly and a $569 bid by Mueller Co., Chattanooga, Tenn., for a tapping valve. The tapping saddle and valve will enable direct flow of water from the Mississippi pipeline into the city distribution system, bypassing the pumping equipment and reservoir in Galesburg in case of emergency. Other bids accepted were those of Virgil Cook & Sons, DeKalb, $2,397, for school signals at the intersection of Willard and Fremont streets, and Sinclair Refining Company, $.116 per gallon for No. 2 fuel oil. Attend Streator Class Reunion Mrs. Victor Wagher of Victoria, in company of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Davis of Galesburg, have returned from Streator, where they attended the 45th anniversary reunion of Streator High School Class of 1918. A banquet and program was held at the Streator Country Club. Mrs. Wagher was formerly Mabel Stewart of Streator. Out of a class of 63 members, 29 returned for the reunion. Guests and members totaled 54. One member of this class, but not a graduate, is Noble J. Puffer. Mr. Puffer was for 28 years superintendent of Cook County schools. He was not able to be present. Miss Maude I. Smith of Denver, Colo., class adviser, died in May. She had returned here for the 40th Anniversary in 1958. Gifts were distributed and plans formed for the 50th reunion in October 1968. Grant Divorces, | Continue Armed Robbery Cases Tw> divorces were granted in Knox County Circuit Court this morning and the armed robbery cases involving three out-of-county men was continued. Janet E, Bradford won a divorce from Ronald Bradford. She charged cruelty, Mrs. Bradford was awarded custody of the couple's 4-year-old son, but the father was awarded visitation rights on weekends and Wednesday evenings. Mrs. Bradford waived alimony, but Bradford was directed to pay $10 per week in child support. Rollo L. Dopier was granted a divorce from Betty S. Dopier by Judge Keith Scott. Dopier charged desertion for over a period of a year. The mother was granted custody of the child, but Dopier was given visiting rights at reasonable times and places. He was ordered to pay $10 per week in child support. Mrs. Dopier was barred from alimony. The third member of a trio charged with armed robbery was released on $5,000 bond today. He was James Edward Geary, 21, of Wyoming Route 1. The other two, James Irwin McClain, 36, of Moline, and Charles David Jacobs, 19, of Kewanee, were previously released on bond. Judge Scott continued all three cases until Oct. 21 to give their attorneys time to study the indictments and to prepare any motions to be filed. Violan Observes 89th Birthday VIOLA — Mrs. Mae Stancliff, Viola, today observed her 89th birthday.
