(jalesbuig Kggister-Maii OALESBURO, ILL., PHI., JULY ft, 1973 SEC. 3 >AOE 21 From Smog Plan LOS ANGELES (UW) - The first die of a federal antismog ''shutdown plan" had no visible effect Thursday apart from providing a holiday for some federal workers, winds from the ocean dissipated the smog anyway, City and county governments criticized the plan, and the county. protested to President Nixon. The expected siege of heavy smog failed to materialize after an overnight change in meteorological conditions, but the first stage of the federal Emergency Air Episode plan had already bean put into effect the day, before. Federal Offices Under the first stage all federal offices in a five-county area were requested by the Environmental , Protection Agency to shut down for the day if possible, or revert to skeleton staffs for emergency functions and discourage use of private and official cars. The decision was up to local agency chiefs. Most refused. An estimated 25,006 federal employes took the day off, 21 per cent of the 118,000 federal workers in the area, which has a working population of about 3 million. The California Highway Patrol said there was no noticeable reduction hi auto traffic on the hundreds of miles of freeways that lace the affected area, . which has a population of 10 million—almost all of whom rely on private autos for transportation. Police said traffic appeared to be heavier than usual in some areas. Amusements parks such as Disneyland and others reported on drops in attendance, an estimated 425,000 persons drove to -area's beaches, and the Rapid Transit District reported no increase in bus passengers. Only the Social Security Administration and Internal Revenue Service closed up shop for the day. The Post Office, federal courts, FBI, U.S. Marshal's office and others operated normally.

Mall to Mitt Oak nun. Box 11. Dahlnda, 111. 11421 I — WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, a "happy warrior" in presidential politics, says he loves to campaign but getting the money to do so is a "disgusting" and "sick ening" process. The Minnesota senator made the observation in a debate on campaign spending reform in the Senate Thursday. Many of Humphrey's colleagues appeared to agree with him as the Senate cracked down on "fat cat" contributors to political campaigns and demonstrated strong sentiment for federal subsidies of presidential and congressional elections. In an emotional speech, the 1968 Democratic presidential WATCH for the "BOUNTY HUT" candidate said "the most demeaning, disgusting, disenchanting part (of campaigning) relates to campaign financing's sickening." He urged the Senate to "get out of the quagmire, slough and slush" of private financing. Public Financing Public financing of elections lost its first test vote, 53-38, but many supporters of federal subsidies voted to kill it preferring to wait until hear ings are held in September. The vote came on an amendment by Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., which called for mandatory federal financing of presidential and congressional elections, beginning in 1976. Stung by the Watergate scandal, the Senate started tightening up a comprehensive campaign reform package as it began voting on a committee- approved bill. Get a eood deal on a Javekn.

Puckett/American/ Jeep Inc. 143 FERRIS STRUT, GA15SBURG, ILL The initial attack was mounted on the limitations on contributions by individuals to a candidate which the bill set at $5,000 for congressional races and $15,000 for presidential contests. The Senate adopted, 54-39, an amendment by Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, D-Tex., limiting donations to $3,000 in each election- primaries, general election, and run-off, if any. Left intact was an over-all ceiling of $100,000 in a single year. Killed by Truck ST. CLAIR, Mo.

DETROIT (UPI) - What do 1,500 delegates who have gathered for a week-long convention of the National Vnit«d Church Ushers Association find to talk about? Silence. Silence is the Watchword for the group, which is holding its 54th annual convention to elect officers, hand out scholarships and conduct demonstrations on the finer techniques of ushering. A finger at the throat, a closed fist, or folded arms may be insignificant gestures to some people—tout they have definite meanings to the association's 50,000 members from black churches in 26 states. Hospitality Group "Basically, we're a hospitality group whose purpose is to make people comfortable in church," said Mrs. Alma C. Hawkins of Washington, D.C., who is handling public relations at the convention. "But you'd be amazed at what goes into it" Basics include a nine-month "ushering school" set up in eacn memoer state > wnicn prospective inters are etpepted to - Attend Once ft tf&ek, flflrf ft pamphlet whkh describe* alt the gestures and techniques which the students must memo* rize and demonstrate. The schools even conduct mid-term and final exams and award diplomas at graduation exercises during the annual convention, complete wMh vale* dictorians for each member state. Cardinal Rule The cardinal rule the pamphlet emphasizes is silence, all communication between ushers is done by signs rather than sound. A hand on the tie is a distress signal, for example, while touching the throat or a raised finger is a call for attention, A closed fist may indicate there is no more seating room in.. a particular section. "We insist that there be no talking—we do everything by signs," Mrs. Hawkins said. "It adds so much more dignity and quietness to your service." OAK RUN LAKE HOMES INC.
