(AP VVireplioto) Dorchester area gets $180,000 for rural water system By HELEN LISTON Telegraph Correspondent CARLINVILLE - A $120,000 direct loan and a $60,000 development grant to the village of Docrhester to build a rural community water system has been approved by the Farmers Home Administration, according to an announcement by Kenneth A. Stark, Illinois state director. The loan and grant will enable the community to develop a central water system to serve 110 water users the first year. The village will purchase treated water from the city of Gillespie. Plans call for the construction of a main water transmission line along Rte. 16 from Gillespie to Dorchester. A 50,000-gallon water tank will be erected in Dorchester. In addition to individual users the system will serve seven commercial establishments and 17 farms. Construction is expected to begin immediately after the loan closing which is scheduled for Dec. 30 in the Dorchester City Hall. Dorchester has been actively trying to get a water system since 1965. Their efforts to locate an adequate underground water supply were unsuccessful. Most of the wells and cisterns now being used by residents are polluted. , In drought years, residents are forced to haul water and the new water system is expected to greatly benefit farmers whose livestock operations have been hindered by lack of water. Present dwellings in Dorchester are expected to be modernized and no less than a dozen new homes will be built as soon as the system becomes operational. The Dorchester water system will be another milestone in the development of the southern half of Macoupin County, officials say. The project has received the approval of the Macoupin County Board of Supervisors and the Macoupin County Comprehensive Water and Sewer Committee. The Fanners Home Administration loan will be repaid in 40 years at 5 per Woman gets second bomb threat The owners of an Alton apartment house at 622 East Fifth have been threatened with bombing for the second time in three weeks according to police. Mrs. Anita Born, 257 South Ninth, East Alton, told Alton police a neighbor of the apartment house had called her Wednesday and told her a young women, recently fired by one of the tenants because of incompetance as a baby-sitter, had called four men from the neighbor's home and told them "tonight is the night." The woman later told the neighbor "620 and 622 Fifth will be bombed tonight-" The baby sitter was fired recently after tenant complaints she was entertaining men and putting the child in her care outside. It was after the first in- the first threats cent interest. Security for the loan will be water reveune bonds and the system will be repaid out of water revenue. The village will contribute $15,000 of its own funds towards the total cost of the project. Rural water and sewer financing is extended through the Farmers Home Administration to small rural towns and villages and organizations operating on a not-for-profit basis. Loans and grants are made only when adequate credit at reasonable rates and terms is not otherwise available. Dorchester is the sixth water system in Macoupin County financed by the Farmers Home Administration. Since July, 1965, the Farmers Home Administration has made 112 loans and grants totaling $23,644,010 for rural water and sewer system projects in .Illinois. Law schools perpetrate 'hoax': prof CHICAGO (AP) — Law schools which encourage women students but refuse to act against prospective em- p 1 o y e r s practicing sex discrimination are perpetrating a "cruel hoax," says a woman law professor. Mrs. Frederica K. Lombard, who teaches at Wayne State Law School, expressed this view after the Association of American Law Schools took what she regarded as a weak stand on the issue Wednesday. The association, representing 122 law schools, amended its charter to prohibit discrimination against women in legal education but adopted a clause on placement practices which Mrs. Lombard described as "watered down." The association's Committee on Equality of Opportunity for Women had proposed that law schools "insist" that employers who recruit on campuses not discriminate against women. The AALS-approved recommendation said only that member schools should stale their "firm expectations" that employers w ! ll not discriminate. Mrs. Lombard is the 1971 chairman of the AALS committee on women, which has issued a report showing that nearly twice as nr.iuy girls entered law schools in 1970 compared to 1967 but that discrimination i n hiring continues. "The study," Mrs. Lombard said in an interview, "is significant because it shows the percentage of women students has increased, which means that law schools are encouraging women to attend. Yet the failure of the AALS of taking a strong stand on placement practices makes them part of a cruel hoax." Mrs. Lombard said there was little if any discrimination agrnst women by law schools considering admissions. Approximately 37 per cent of the participating schools have a written policy prohibiting sex discrimination by employers recruiting on campus but Mrs. Lombard said AALS, members must impose sanctions on violators or the problem will not he remedied.
