A ws nty Make Rec By NORMA CUNNINGHAM (Staff Writer) A majority of Knox County residents are willi&B to some effort to recycle wiste materials, according to a comprehensive waste* management plan completed under the direction of Diiane M. Moore, associate professor of geology at Knox College. The study predicts that resale of paper, glass, aluminum and mixed non-ferrous metals should yield $535,000 a year, while expense for col* letting, separating and marketing of refuse would be $360,000 a year. The initial investment to get the plan rolling would be $987,000, the study says. ^— A survey conducted by Moore's students show that 71.3 per cent of persons inter* viewed would be willing to separate their refuse prior to collection, and 63 per cent of those surveyed would be in favor of an ordinance requiring separation. Most persons surveyed were in favor of the plan because they felt it could be helpful in solving the environmental problem. THE PLAN proposes that householders separate refuse into three categories — paper, glass and metal, and garbage. Paper and garbage would be picked up by a collector once a week, glass and metal once a month. The program would produce 15,900 tons of paper, M00 tons of glass* 680 tons of aluminum and 131 tons of mixed, nonferrous metals, according to the study* tt is suggested that the difference between the income produced by the program and the expense be used to amortize the initial outlay. The study proposes a site of 300 acres near the intersection of 1*74 and 111. 97, since it would be close to the population center and served by highways and railroad. ON THE SITE wbuld be a processing plant, a storage area, and an area on which to spread compost and sanitary landfill. The study claims that if the area were properly fenced and landscaped, it would bring no more tion than any industrial activity. . Pointing out that an education program $rouid be need* ed to make the plan work, the study proposes that communities and individuals should be served by a county service, Large containers would be placed outside the population centers of Galesburg, Knoxville and Ab* ingdon so rural residents could place refuse in them. The study suggests that each fifth Friday on the calendar could be declared a "free day," and individuals could haul la>ge bulky items such as branches, brush, junk autos and discarded appliances and furniture to the landfill site. .. 4 . A metal building of ISO by 60 feet would be on the site. The first step in the operation would be the separation of palter, would be the major contributor to a landfill — more than 50 per cent. The study also points out that paper Would be the major source of income a possible $142,560 a year. THE STUDY proposes that h- organic garbage could be composted, cutting down on the material to be buried, Compost could be'u&d as fer* tilizer, and the life of the landfill would also be lengthened* \ Metal items such as tin cans, metal appliances and junk autos could be stored, the study contends, for a fu­ ture market when scarcity of metals and freight rates a need for recycled metal, It is proposed that a portable shredder could come to the county periodically to reduce such items to small + V t shewefs ftorth, tome thUAdMIUMM iguth; Jgm geftett W .*™»> d ><w likely soUtti; um 1ft ffte flto Jrt»m SW north to vpptt W» smith. sunny ahd tmit Tuesday ^WHH td€ JUL WfAfttttfi hifhs T7'85 ftorth ahd 1ft the «Oi ttfttpeMtee, % mofftlftfs south. low. 85.

Nelson, D-3rd, said he is returning two guest tickets he received. He contended that (Certain improprieties may have taken place in dispensing the tickets. "Since the county board ofi which I tarn a member appropriates funds for the Knox County Pair Assn., I believe it is questionable whether myself, or any elected official 4 Dallas Laws Bail Bond should ects > Free Fair t i ' receive gratuities in any form, no matter what the amount. The taxpayers have been victimized on the national, state and local level long enough. It's time at the local level to start cleaning up," Nelson said in a prepared statement. RICHARD M. BURGLAND, R-lst, board chairman, said today board members have been given the complimentary tickets for years. "He (Nelson) is certainly entitled to his opinion. However, I don't feel that receiving two tickets would compromise me or affect how I would vote on an issue," Burgland said. Wendell Farris, Knox County Fair secretary, confirmed it has been a practice many years to send the tickets to board members. send the "Certainly we ard members tickets. V/e want them to come and review the operation, criticize and offer suggestions. I don't know a better way to get that accomplished, do you?" Farris said the fair board is under the county board's jurisdiction to a certain degree. He said the county provided the ground on which the fair operates, and the property would revert to the county in the event the fair should ever cease to exist. THE COUNTY board each year allocates $400 to the fair .association and grants a beer- only permit for the run of the fair. The issuance of such permits to fairs and agricultural expositions is provided given to the fair is oni!y "a nominal amount" in the total "It's operation of the fair. but have just a token, out we never asked for an increase because we knew the county probably couldn't afford to increase the allocation," he said. Farris said, in his opinion, for in state statutes. Farris said that the |400 Set at $20,000 Bond for accused murderer Dallas Laws, 28, was set at $10,000 on each of two counts this morning in Knox County Circuit Court. Laws was given copies of the charges of escape and aggravated battery lodged against him as a result of his Nov. 13, 1971 Alight from the Knox County Jail. Knox County State's Atty. Donald C. Wooftsey told Laws hat should he come up with brad on the two charges, he wouW immediately be brought back into court where hail would be discussed on the. murder charge pending against him. No bail was ever set on the murder charge which was filed against him March 10, 1971. giving two complimentary tickets does not compromise any board member. "It is customary practice by every county fair in the state where the fair is any way connected to the county," he said. r w • Hearings Are Set In Knox County Strip Mine Suits Donald J.

He had been changed with the March 3, 1971, murder of Mrs. Elizabeth McKiimey, a Galesburg waitress. 'Yes, Sir' Laws' only response when he appeared in court today was do answer, "Yes, sir," when Judge Gale Mathers asked if he was without funds. Mathers then appointed John Blake as public defender for Laws on the charges of escape and aggravated battery. Wililiam Heiming was appointed public defender for Laws on the murder charge June 29, 1971, and he wiil continue in that capacity when Laws is tried on that charge. Helming is reportedly on vacation for two weeks, and Woolsey said he would notify John Beiers, special prosecutor of that fact. Beiers, who is a member of the model state's attorney project which is funded through the Illinois Law Enforcement CftnrcmiiS^^ will hanjle the prosecution of the murder change since Woolsey may appear as a witness during the course of the trial. The state's attorney said a list of 65 witnesses has been furnished to the office of the defense prosecutor, Woolsey refused to speculate on when the case might come to triad or •the length of the trial, saying that all aispects of the prosecution would be up to Beiers' office. Back to Jail Laws was returned to Knox Delta Queen Triumphs coming year. BUENOS bomb was thrown into the front seat of an unoccupied state patrol car causing an estimated $400 damage. Arson was suspected in two other blazes—one causing $300 will be Tuesday evening.

J • They were Joseph White, Richard Briewer and Frank Sagadin Jr., all 19 - year-old Chicago residents. Witnesses said the men disappeared as they swam for the south bank of the river near Cincinnati's Delta Queen nosed out Peoria's Julia Belle Swain by a mere 40 feet during a race yesterday on the Illinois River at Peoria. The race, which took half an hour, was followed at water level by hundreds of pleasure boats while on shore thousands watched their hometown favorite go down in defeat.

Bids on some $300,000 worth of street work, to be financed with revenue sharing funds and state motor fuel tax dollars, will be let Aug. 13. This had not been done sooner because the state just approved the motor fuel tax portion last week, Morrow explained. "If we're lucky they'll get done this year," he commented. Streets scheduled for repairs soley with state motor fuel tax funds were selected last fall and received state approval individually at various times earlier this year. Bids have already been let on these. Work has been started on all of these except Seldon and Kellogg streets because of hospital work in the area.
