Releases Construction ency Contracts for Two New Schools Winners at Mercer Fair MONMOUTH - Contracts totaling $790,550 for construction of new schools at Willits and Garfield have been released by the Illinois Capital Development Board, Richard Flynn, superintendent of schools in District 36, told the Board of Education Tuesday night. The action by the state agency was the final step required before the construction firms could actually begin work this sum mer. Flynn said the develop ment board, which oversees public construction projects, releas ed the contracts July 3. They were awarded late in June. The general contract for $551,164 went to Carl Nelson, Burlington, Iowa. Johnston Sheet Metal, East Moline, received a ventilation contract for $17,500 and a heating contract for $60,200. Electrical. Service Inc., Galesburg, received a Contract for $65,154 for the electrical work. The J. P. Benbow Plumbing and Heating Co., Galesburg, was awarded the heating work at $56,532. John Mellican, representative of the Galesburg architectural firm of Weber, Griffith & Mellican, said no date has been scheduled for groundbreaking at the two schools, but that the Grand Opening ' MONMOUTH - Guzzardo's Book and Card Shop will hold a grand opening Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Guzzardo's has moved to 209 S. Main St., the former location of the Sears catalog store. MONMOUTH Correspondent Mrs. Lorraine Stauth For .Newt 412 S. 10th St. Phone 7344711 For Missed Copies Before 6 P. M. Phone 734-4)21 contract called for the work to be done within a year of the starting date. Flynn said plans now call for the new Willits and Garfield schools to be ready for occupancy in the fall of 1974. In other action, the board approved a tax levy of $ r? %400 for 1973. This represents a decrease of $8,425 from the 1972 levy. Flynn said the 1972 levy was based on assessed valuation of $27,500,000 but that elimination of personal property tax lower ed that figure to $25,356,313. He said the 1973 levy is based on assessed valuation of $26,500,000 which should be high enough to insure receiving maximum amounts in the education and building funds. "I think, we can reasonably expect that the valuation of the district will not in­ crease above that level," he said. Flynn also reported that a new state aid bill on Gov. Daniel Walker's desk calls for about a nine per cent increase. "That would give us about $100,000 and solve our prob* lems," he said. Resignations were accepted from Gerald Goodman, industrial arts instructor and varsity basketball and baseball coach at Monmouth High School; Mary Ellen PAttman, high school mathematics teacher, and Carol Lewis, a fifth grade teacher at Lincoln School. Flynn also reported that three teaching positions, that of an English teacher ait Monmouth High School and two second grade teachers ait Willits, are being held open pending approv­ al of the Title I program. The Title I program provides funds for special reading instructors. The teachers who have been Idling those positions in the district will be offered the vacancies being held open if no Title I funds are approved for this year. Flynn said, "I still think wc will get Title I funding but I don't know when." He said it may be necessary in August to fill the vacancies being held open. "Then if the Title I funds arc approved later maybe we can do some transferring," he said. Other existing vacancies include high school mathematics and high school art. Flynn reported that members of the board had met twice with the teacher's negotiating team but that nothing has been settled yet. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday. The board members approved the use of Sunny Lane Athletic Field Aug. 3 by the Monmouth Park District which is going to sponsor a field day. A special education claim for $1,125 was approved by the board. This represents half of the funds spent during ,1972 to provide homebound instruction for 10 students. Approval was also given by the board members for the pre^ sentation to the state of a claim for $21,665 for special education. The district spent $30>265 for tuition for 16 students to attend Warren Achievement School, seven of which are presently going to summer school. The state reimbur.'«s the district for any amount over $600 per student. A request from the Connie Mack baseball team to use some baseball uniforms was approved. The team is playing two games in the state tournament and needed extra uniforms so they could change for the second game. The uniforms are to be returned clean and, if necessary, repaired. The September meeting of the board was rescheduled from Sept. 11 to Sept. 18 to allow a SO-day period for adoption of the 1973-1974 budget. Flynn said members would be selected at the August meeting to serve on a Citizens Advisory Committee and asked the board members for recommendations. Mrs. Edna Leaith of Cameron, a 1973 graduate of Western Illinois University, was hired 6s a fifth grade teacher for Lincoln School.

Mother's Mark Doomed Daughters to Sterilization WASHINGTON (UPI) - A sad and angry black mother from Alabama told the Senate health subcommittee Tuesday how an "X" she signed on a nurse's form unwittingly doomed iwo of her daughters to surgical sterilization. on safeguards for subjects of human medical experimentation. Illiterate Mother "I put an 'X' on a piece of paper," Mrs. Relf, a welfare mother unable to read or write, ! replied. ifTbe nurse came and told me Attorney Joseph J. Levin Jr., she was going to give them shots," Mrs. Lonnie Relf, 44, said in her account of how Minnie Lee, 14, and Mary Alice, % received the surgery without her knowledge. *'You signed some form?" Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., asked, as he questioned who has filed a $1 million damage suit on behalf of the Relfs, said it was not until later that the couple learned the "X" "authorized" an irreversible surgical sterilization last June 14 instead of mere shots for the! young girls. An elder daughter, Katie, 16, Rfijf, 56, and his wife Tuesday.escaped a similar operation in. the last of a dozen hearings'only because she was away from home when the nurse first called and locked herself in her room when the nurse called again. Suit FUed The suit was filed against officials of the Montgomery i Family Planning Clinic, the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) which administered its federal funding and an array of federal officials. Warren M. Hern, who has since resigned as a chief OEO program director, testified he wrote guidelines that might have prevented the incident but they were "suppressed" by the White House and were never issued. On the day 25,000 copies of the guidelines "came off the presses," Hern said, he was advised distribution would be delayed pending a White House review. His inquiries led him to the office of former White House Counsel John W. Dean III, a key witness in the Senate Watergate hearings, Hern said. An aide to Dean said the White House had no knowledge of the guidelines. In Montgomery Tuesday, the $1 million suit was amended to include as defendants Dean and John D. Ehrlichman, Nixon's former chief domestic adviser.

(UPI) — Hunters armed with tranquilizer guns today closed in on the last of 12 Bengal tiger cubs that escaped from their compound at African Safari Park. Nine of the rare animals were captured Tuesday by policemen and park rangers who fanned out through the countryside along the Quebec- New York border. Six were felled with sleep-inducing darts and the other three were rounded up by pursuing jeeps. The hold-out trio was lured out of the bushes' with horsemeat Tuesday night, but they stopped about 10 feet short of their compound and for the next five hours they paced before the wire enclosure in a heavy rain. At 3 a.m. today two of the stubborn black and orange striped cats padded into the compound and the wire gates were slammed shut behind them. The last tiger, however, slipped back into the dense bush. "He has apparently sought shelter in the bush from the rain," a park official said. "He may come out again in an hour, three hours or five hours. We don't know just when but it's just a matter of time now." The Bengal cubs, members of a vanishing species which is being bred here, slipped out of their compound in the 800-acre wild animal sanctuary Monday night after the double-bolt lock on their cage gate was left open. They are all under a year old and weigh less than 150 pounds. A ranger said Bengal tigers were "priceless." Only about 2,000 remain in the world. African Safari Park purchased 20 of the cubs for $60,000. Residents of the small farming community of Hemmingford, located about four miles from the park, did not appear to be too concerned about the loose tigers. Joseph Sagale, whose farm borders the park, said he and his family sat on their veranda and enjoyed watching the hunt. READ THE WANT ADS! Hospital, Cape Town, South Africa.
