Police Hold Man After Tip From FBI A 33 -year-old Bourbotwais man, Paul Alvln Lail, said to have escaped last June 22 from a county jail at Bloomfleld, Mo., was arrested late Saturday afternoon by Galesburg police. He was charged with deception in connection with alleged worthless checks issued during his brief stay In the city and was held under $5,000 bond in the court of O. Paul Nolan, police magistrate. Also taken into custody and held for investigation was Lail's wife, Wanda E. tail, 36, whose address was listed as Charleston. The FBI was in on this case since a federal warrant, charging unlawful flight, was issued July 3, at St. Louis, Mo., after Lail was reported to have sawed his way out of the county jail at Bloomfield. FBI agents were expected to return here today after having participated in extensive questioning of the couple following their Saturday arrest. Information concerning Lail's presence in Galesburg, it was indicated, came from the FBI. A long distance call by Mrs. Lail from Galesburg to Charleston appeared to have been a link in the case. A check of the local number used in the call led to the motel, where the woman was in the motel room, but her husband was not present. Lail's car was spotted by Det. Jesse Moss Jr. and Officer George Perrigo, who along with other officers and squad cars were in search of Lail. His car was halted as he was making a turn into the motel driveway. A report that he was armed proved to have been unfounded and only a holster for a small revolver and a supply of cartridges were located in his pos sessions. Opened Account Questioning was said to have revealed that Lail opened a checking account at a local bank, having $18.50 on deposit after paying $1.50 for checks with his name imprinted. He waited at the bank, the report stated, while the imprinting took place. Also on records he received from the bank, he entered two other deposit figures to supplement the original deposit. With the check book in h i s possession, it appeared Lail em GolMbufQ Register-Mail, Galesburg, III.

Academy St., was ordered by Judge Daniel J. Roberts to spend three months in the county jail. Quiggens pleaded guilty Oct. 4 to a charge of contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor female child. Sentencing was delayed by the judge pending a conference with the parole officer of the Illinois Youth Commission, from which the youth was on parole. Today, the judge placed Quiggens on parole to Ralph Newberg, IYC parole officer. Should the commission decide to release the youth, other arrangements will be made for probation supervision, the judge said.

Kellogg St. The investigation disclosed nothing listed as missing. Entrance was gained by forcing the front door, by use of a pipe wrench, which also appeared to have been used to force a door between the waiting room and the clinic proper. A file cabinet was pried open as were metal boxes in the cabinet, the report stated.

The report listed three checks for $20 each, one for $15 and one for $12. Two of the checks were for wrist watches, one of which was found in Mrs. Lail's possession, police said. Subsequently, authorities recovered several items which appeared to have been obtained through the check writing activities. How much came from local stores and how much from stores in other cities was not immediately known. Information obtained during the questioning, it was reported, was that Lail chose smaller communities in his tour. He would make a small bank deposit and then wait until Saturday afternoon or Sunday to embark on his purchasing and check writing splurges.

Jury Probes Group Linked To Licenses CHICAGO (UPI) - An assistant U.S. attorney said today a U.S. Grand Jury is conducting an investigation of "officials of the state of Illinois" in income tax matters involving small loan company licenses. Asst. U.S. Atty. Vincent Russo did not say whether he re ferred to past or present officials, but he put the names of former Gov. William G. Strat ton and Conrad F. Becker, director of the Department of Financial Institutions under Stratton, into the court record. Russo said "newspapers have printed stories based on specu< lation and conjecture which have said this is an investiga tion against Gov. Stratton and Mr. Becker." Russo did not confirm that the investigation involves Stratton and Becker. The U.S. attorney made the comment in open court testimony before Chief U.S. District Court Judge William Campbell. Russo spoke at a hearing on whether an attorney, Jerome D. Spitzer, should be compelled to answer preliminary questions before the grand jury. Campbell is presiding over the grand jury investigation. It has been reported that the grand jury is looking into the issuance of small loan company licenses between 1955 through 1960. Stratton, a Republican, was governor between 1953 and 1960.

Not Responsible for Accidents Set Nursing Home Meet In Abingdon ABINGDON — Parties associated in the $460,000 nursing home project in Abingdon will meet Tuesday at 1 p.m. at the Friendly Cafe to set plans for ground-breaking ceremonies. A spokesman for Friendly Homes, Inc., Alton, said today construction of the 1-story 76- bed structure is expected to start in about 10 days. The nonprofit corporation, which is building a number of nursing homes in Illinois and Minnesota, will finance a major portion of the project. The City of Abingdon has agreed to give a plot of land on the Berwick Road for a site and Chamber of Commerce members completed the sale of $60,000 first-income bonds last week. These bonds, carrying 6 per cent interest, will be paid off from initial returns of the nursing home operation. Slated to Participate Present at Tuesday's meeting will be Mark Jones, Minneapolis, general contractor of the building, Richard F. Zejklik, Minneapolis, architect, Peter Petro, Minneapolis, representing the Turnkey Corp., a finan cial institution; Rev. Randall Mercer, Rev. Lloyd Shumaker, and Rev. C. W. Marshall, all executives of the Friendly Homes, Inc. Negotiations between the Abingdon Chamber of Commerce and Friendly Home executives have been going on since March.

A 67-bed nursing home also is being constructed at the southwest corner of Losey and Kellogg streets in Galesburg by American Nursing Homes, Inc. Known as the Abingdon Friendly Nursing Home, the new facility will employ 30 persons and have free TV available for each patient.
