Weather and River Ordinances to eight properties were criticized today by some of the persons who wold be affected. th« City Cmmelt is scheduled to act on the measures during a meeting in City Hall Monday starting at 7:30 p.m. The city, under state statute, may annex property less than 60 acres in size without the owner's permission—providing the property is encircled by land already within the corporate limits. PROPOSED FOR annexation are homes at 99, 57 and 25 West Carl Sandburg Drive, property near Club 19 and the restaurant itself on the west side of North Henderson Street just south of U.S. 34, property on 498 E. Davis St., a lot in the 2500 block of North Seminary Street, and Cottage Hosiptal propertry on East Davis Street. "I bought property in the country about to months ago, and I'll be very disappointed if I have come into the city," said George Bowers, 57 W. Carl Saftdgurg Dr. He said higher taxes don't bother him as much as the lack of free* dom he would have as a city resident. "If you're an archery fan you can shoot in the back yard in the country. If I bought more property in back (behind his) I could raise horses if I wanted to." "It's like going against Go* liath, but this is some poor guy without a slingshot. You can't fight it," Bowers added. Charles Calderone, one of the owners of Club 19. said he may object to the annexation, but so far had not. JOHN HATTERY, 25 W. Carl Sandburg Dr., said he and his neighbors being considered for annexation were "extremely unhappy 0 about it. "Our situation is that we won't be benefitted by the an* nexation," Hattery said. He said they were satisfied with fire protection, furnished tin* ler a contract with the city, and they have sewers. ' our taxes would probably increase substantially," he added. Also on Monday's council agenda is a resolution dealing With a proposed city-county public safety building. The resolution states plans for the building are generally acceptable to the county, City Manager Thomas Herring explained. The next step on the proposed building is up to the Knox County Board, he said. AMENDMENT to the city's bicycle ordinance, on first reading, would set more stringent rules en bicyclists with wheels larger than 16 inches. Other ordinances to be considered are: — An amendment to the traffic ordinance to remove parking on both aides of Grove Street between Lincoln and Whitesboro streets. — An ordinance to allow TOPICS (Traffic Operations to Increase Capacity and Safety) improvements to Dayton and Henderson streets. — An amendment to the traffic ordinance to remove parking on the west side of Michigan Avenue between Main and Knox streets. — An amendment to change the eity zoning ordinance to make 466 Filer St. a neighborhood commercial district instead of a residential district. Appointments to various boards and commisions are listed again on the council's agenda? The council still needs to appoint members to the Airport Advisory Committee, Air* port Zoning Administration, Board of Zoning Appeals, Citizens Advisory Committee and Over-all Code Review Committee. The Galesburg Jaycees also building at 1090 Clark St. have sent the council a letter recorwnending the city's new ly-icquired park on Russell Avenue be named Debbie KlappPark.

Another man was being held in the city jail, charged with aggravated battery. WOUNDED was Gregory Taylor, 1126 S. West St. Police said Taylor was shot by Homer J. Grey Jr., 26, 752 S. Cedar St., during an early- momkig fight on Grey's front lawn. The scuffle also involved Grey's wife, Peggy, who received a knife wound and was treated at St Mary's Hospital. Police said the incident began earlier as a fight at a local bar between Mrs. Grey and Taylor's woman companion. Grey allegedly pulled a knife then and threatened Taylor if he attempted to stop the two women from fighting. ABOUT 2:30 A.M. today, Taylor allegedly drove to the Grey residence armed with a butcher knife, kicked in the front door and dragged Mrs. Grey into the front yard with the knife at her throat, witnesses told police. During the ensuing struggle, Mrs. Grey struck Taylor seVeral times with a drain pipe, witnesses related, and her husband fired a .38 caliber bullet at point blank range which hit Taylor above the left eye. Despite the wound, Taylor allegedly knocked Grey to the ground and leaped on top of him with the knife before an onlooker knocked the knife from his hand. POLICE SAID Taylor left the scene and drove to his home, where he collapsed and an ambulance was called. He was first taken to St. Mary*s Hospital and later transferred to St. Francis; Grey was taken into custody at his residence. The gun was reportedly recovered by po- jce. Aggravated battery charges are also pending against Taylor, police said this morning.

Juit an Experiment However, the furor ended when the 30 men who signed up learned the whole scheme was just part of a sociology experiment. *The whole thing came out of the sociology of deviant behavior class," explained Dr. James M. Henslin, associate professor of sociology. "In this, we deal with deviance from the the shooting norm or deviance from what is expected of people. It was an Henslin got the idea for the experiment from a situation he observed while at Amsterdam one summer. "In front of the American Express office where a lot of young people congregate, there was a 55-year-old man dressed in a seedy suit. He had a sign that reed, 'Tm looking for a wife. She be American and must must be tions ranged on a scale from pure belief to pure disbelief. "People thought she must be crazy due to loneliness, was pregnant, or assumed that she must be ugly. It was impossible for them to believe that she would advertise for a husband in this manner. "She did a really beautiful job in role playing and gave fine answers and very credible. I'm amazed anyone signed up at all, though," Henslin said, saving the list of 30 applicants. Mrs. Roth, whose husband A lion Sanitation Crew ALTON, 111.
