"I THINK the President should, in some manner, make! bis personal involvement in the! Watergate affair a matter of record and let the chips fall where they may," said Lmd- berg. He said he personally didn't .'eel the President was involved in the Watergate matter the way some people think he is. "I think he is the type of man who would gfffar beyond reasonable measures to protect people who have worked with him and helped him with many of his marvelous ftccoflipUehments," he said, "and 1 think he has been too loyal and too reluctant to throw the rascals oat" Discujshg Gov. Walker, Und- berg said, "I think the time is past due for him to adopt A pottey of candor rather than one of press agentry." Lindberg rapped Walter for, in fit opinion, trying to foot the public by saying he was presenting a budget for Hit million teas than the previous budget offer* ed by Gov. Richard Ogilvie when, according to Lindberg, he actually planned on spend* ing $113 million more. He also accused the governor of misrepresenting savings as to bills he vetoes. "He frequently adds the figures in duplicate bills which he vetoes and claims to be saving both amounts,'* said L*ndberg. ~.

Pboce 73*4111 of Public Accounts, whfch the new Constitution abolished. Lindberg was inaugurated as Illinois' first comptroller, following three terms in the Illinois House of Representatives. The Comptroller Act of 1972 requires that a new uniform accounting system be in effect by July 1, 1974. Lindberg said Thursday night the new uniform accounting system will include a manual of accounting for about 230,000 accounts. "This means that an of state government will be in the same fiscal or financial system.' Lindberg said this system will permit everyone in the government and the public to have immediate access to complete and understandable financial information, either for investigation or planning. To emphasize the scope of the system being set up, Lindberg said: — The office must maintain (central accounting of about $7 billion in state funds yearly. — DISBURSE $28 million every working day. — Write 40,000 checks a day. — Conduct 10 million transactions a year. Lindberg said it has been necessary to employ extra help in his office in order to have the new uniform accounting system operable by next July. He said a bidding system was used to hire about 70 consultants and specialists, who came primarily from three companies. "We didn't feel we could hire the kind of talent we needed since we would only need our experts for one year, so we chose to hire them from consulting firms,' said Lindberg. THE COMPTROLLER 'S office currently writes about 10 million checks to pay 74,000 state employes and pay other state bills. "Soon we'll begin writing 2.8 million income tax refund checks every year," Lindberg said. He also noted that next July his office will be required to handle the paychecks for 41 ,000 people employed by state uni- veristies. To help with the increased work load in the new office, Lindberg is increasing the use Rebuilding Bridge Topic jr Of Meeting MONMOUTH — Persons in terested in the possibikty of re- f building the covered bridge at Greenbush are invited to a meeting Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Greenbush Community Center. Mrs. Richard Wolf, Greenbush, said the meeting has been called to discuss whether it may be passible to rebuild the covered bridge that was burned earlier this month, and, if so, how.

With compulsory voting in effect and with Filipinos aged 15 years and above, as well as illiterates, allowed to vote for the first time, turnout was reported heavy throughout the day. The voting volume was so big that Marcos extended the referendum by one day up to Saturday. Officials said that at the end of the two-day referendum Saturday evening, they expect that between 18 and 20 million Filipinos —roughly half the Philippines' total population — would have cast their votes. The voter turnout was so heavy that Marcos extended the voting by one day to enable all of an estimated 18 to 20 million persons to cast ballots. Voting was secret and simple —a single question requiring yes or no replies on whether Marcos should continue in office beyond Dec. 31, the date his term would normally expire. The 55-year-old Marcos has tempered his strongman rule with such reforms as distribution of land to tenant farmers, confiscation of more than one- half million unauthorized fire* arms and greater incentives to local exporters and foreign investments. On the other hand, he also has curbed the once-freewheeling Philippine press and stifled political opposition by dismantling congress. Two of his bitterest critics are still under detention along with hundreds of suspected subversives, crime bosses and radical young activists. MONMOUTH Community Memorial Hospital Passengers of Hijacked Jet Return Home After Ordeal TOKYO (UPI) - The passengers of a hijacked Japan Air lines jumbo jet, who escaped death by minutes in Libya, returned home today to an emotional and tearful reunion with their families and thousands of spectators jamming Tokyo Airport. One week after their ordeal began in the skies over Amsterdam, the first 97 passengers to return home stepped DOB jetliner after a flight from Benghazi Libya. It was in the Libyan cay mat! four hijackers gave the 137 passengers and crew five minutes Tuesday to Karachi and Bangkok. One middle-aged man spotted his small son in the crowd and cradled him in his arms. "For a while I was not too sure whether we were going to be killed or not," he said. "But the passengers remained calm throughout the 87 hours they were under captivity." All 97 passengers smiled and bowed as they emerged front the plane. Many wore new shoes. *wMi <rt»* *o redact the ones they pulled off just before escaping the doomed jumbo jet Admissions Wednesday ter Gary Willits Jr., Russell Toops, Mrs. Dena Litzelman, Mrs. W.

"WTftt the computers, our plans call for operating our office by next July with a staff of about 344 people, many of them fiscal experts," said Lindberg. Re said the former office of Auditor ot Public Accounts had • staff of 206 people and all it handled was the writing of about half the number of checks now handled by his office. "Besides paying people, we must also verify the accuracy and legality of each request for state spending," said Lindberg. He said many requests have already been turned down. LINDBERG said he considered his working relationship with Treasurer Allen Dixon "excellent." About 600 people attended the barbecue at the park last night. Among the area legislators present were Sen. Clifford Latherow, R-Carthage; Rep. Tom Me- Masters, R-Oneida, and Rep. Clarence Neff, R-Stronghurst. Check Trees And Shrubs For Worms MONMOUTH - Check your trees and shrubs for bagworms now. Although it's probably too late to do much about the problem this year, It's not too late to take steps to reduce the problem next summer. Sprays offer the best bagworm control, says Jim McCurdy, Warren County Extension adviser. But it's important to spray early in the summer while the worms are still small and easy to kill. By late summer, the bagworm larvae are nearly full grown, the damage is done, and sprays are generally ineffective. "About all you can do now is hand pick the bags off trees and shrubs, place them in a sack, coffee or similar container and send them off with your garbage," McCurdy said. The bags you find on your trees and shrubs now contain the eggs that will hatch a brood of bagworms next spring. And every bag you eliminate now will reduce the number of worms you'll have to contend with next summer. In spring, newly hatched worms leave the mother bag, feed on nearby foliage and begin to construct new bags with silken threads and bits of foliage from the host plants. When fully grown (in late summer), adult males leave the bags and fly about to mate. Adult females remain in the bags and lay the eggs that will produce the next summer's brood. Each female may lay as Mas-.many as 500 eggs. Bagworms feed on the foliage of evergreens and a wide variety of diciduous trees and shrubs, McCurdy says. They can completely defoliate a paint by the end of the summer. Damage is usually most severe on evergreen species. Defoliation does not usually kill deciduous plants, but defoliated evergreens are likely to die, he said. Released by Kidnapers Mrs. Rita Margaret De Nunzio, 22, of Staten Island, N. Y., who was kidnaped on 1-57 late Wednesday night, was released in a field yesterday near Harvey. Talking to reporters at a State Police station, Mrs. De Nunzio appeared tired but healthy. UNIFAX Autographed Quilt Ready For Display at Roseviile ROSEVILLE — The quasqui- centennial autographed quilt, made by members of the Point Pleasant Unit of Homemakers' Extension, has been finished and is ready to be put on display. The quilt, made of fifty-six white blocks, has the auto[graphs of 1,400 Roseviile area residents embroidered on the blocks with red thread. Each corner block is of a red rose, and the center block shows the official seal of the 125th anniversary of Roseviile. The seal was designed by Linda Martin, an 8th grade student, in a contest at the elementary school this spring. The quilt will be shown at the quilt exhibit Saturday, Aug. 4, and at the Warren County Fair, and then will be kept at the museum, where it will be on display.
