Page 4 Freeport (III.) Journal-Standard, Tuesday, July 15, 1975 THE SPIRIT OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION gives a timely touch to the north side of the Maurice Roth&ein's second floor downtown apartment at 14 1/2 W. Stepbenson St. The Rothsteins can view the wall creation of Freeport artist Ron Moore from their outdoor deck and passersby can catch the mural from the validated parking lot or Douglas Street, Rothstein got the idea for, the mural from browsing through a calender, figuring a Bicentennial motif was better than a plain green wall. Students of history will recognize the flag as the "Bennington Banner," the first one adopted by the Continental Congress. Moore used about $45 worth of paint in executing his outsized piece. The Rothsteins are pleased and hope to have the minuteman, eagle and flag as companions for several years.-Journal-Standard Photo. ••• "•" .,'•*' -••....• 7'• '-"',' ' Justice Douglas Says He'll Return NEW YORK (UPI) - Justice William Douglas says he "positively" will return to the U.S. Supreme Court when its new term begins in October. "There's no chance I'll retire," the 76-year-old justice said in an interview with the North American Newspaper Alliance. "I'll be there in October, positively." Douglas suffered a stroke this year. His absence from the bench during most of the spring term has led to widespread speculation he would be unable to return to the court this fall and might be forced to retire. But Sidney Zion, who interviewed Douglas for NANA, reported the justice was "witty, articulate and highly optimistic about his health." Douglas labeled as false recent reports his colleagues on the high court" were refusing to accept his proxy vote on cases where he was absent from the weekly conferences where the justices vote. "I know what they're saying. I've read the stories and they're not true," Douglas said. "The reason we put off the capital punishment case is that a number of different state statutes on the death penalty are on their way up to the court. "We want to handle them at one time. That's all there is to it." Douglas said he was "completely up to date" on the court's work. During his months at Rusk he has completed a difficult volume of his autobiography, "The Court Years." Douglas wears a brace on his leg and needs a wheelchair, but it hasn't stopped him from making frequent rounds about Manhattan. In "May, he made a surprise appearance at the 50th anniversary of his Columbia Law School class, and he has been seen shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch and lunching at Sardi's. Zion said Douglas apologized to visitors for having nothing stronger to drink in his clipboard than Burgundy wine. . ' "I sneeze-every time I smell the stuff," the jurist said. "I've somehow grown allergic to booze." Douglas has a steady stream of callers. His wife, Cathleen, maintains sleeping quarters at the institute. His three law clerks shuttle back and forth from Washington and friends visit him regularly. Sen. Edward. Kennedy, D- Mass.. came to see him last week. Prouty's Statement On Butterfield Retracted SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (UPI) - Retired Air Force Col. L. Fletcher Prouty, who last week said former presidential aide Alexander Butterfield was a CIA contact man in the Nixon White House, now says he might have been misled to conceal the identity of the "real" contact. Prouty, a Springfield native, said in a telephone interview Monday with the Springfield Daily News the CIA con- , tact might have been another White '" House aide. "They may have told me the wrong name to cover up the real informer," said Prouty, himself a contact officer in the Defense Department from 1955 to 1963. Prouty earlier said Watergate con- 3 Local Educators Attend Ohio Seminar Three administrators in the Freeport School district took part in the Institute for Development of Educational Activities seminar in Dayton, Ohio.

Prynn, principal of Freeport High School, were among the 500 educators to participate. Theme for the seminar was "Educating For Responsibility."

Howard Hunt told him in 1971 that, Butterfield was a White House contact for the CIA. Butterfield, in a telephone statement to UPI Monday, said allegations that he was the contact man in the Nixon White House "are wholly false and defamatory." , Butterfield, who headed the Federal Aviation Administration until he resigned in March, said he had never met 1 or even seen Hunt and had never heard of Prouty until recently.' , Butterfieltf disclosed ithe existence of .the Nixon tapes while testifying^at the Watergate hearings two years ago. At a White House news briefing Monday, press secretary Ron Nessen, denied that Butterfield had been Believed of his position as FAA administrator because he disclosed the taping system. According to Prouty, the CIA had contact men in almost every federal department in Washington, including the Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department; ? "Prouty's initial public statements about me were sufficent to ers to allege in my case a spy motive, to allege infiltration, in other words to - suggest that while at the White House I served two masters," Butterfield said.

' ' Aurari'd''HartjS' "Androcles and {he; Lion," third production of Highland- Community College's Summer Set Theater II, is a simple, straight- forwardchildren's play uncluttered, by character nuance and elaborate sets. It runs today through Saturday at the Highland theater; .curtaintime is 7:15 p.m. The cast, local high school students, put on a special show Monday night for children from, St. Vincent's Home, St. Francis School, King's Daughters Children's Homes and other guests. The play is directed by Larry E. Boiler. ' In case the viewer doesn't remember (or never knew), the plot is based on a fable in which a slave (Androcles, played by Rosy Hayes) overcomes k ,: remove a thorn frd'm a paw 6'MS .iityi,'(Pat Sutterlfrijj The Jlion latef-fe- ,.7:jfcuThs to do the sjave a favor, and love •" "and coopertion win the day. -"-?•'"' This production starts slowly with ^ some animals (a porcupine, two rab- ''*"bits; arid a squire!)" making a lot of tsk, taking noises to wake the seeping company. Before the curtain rises, the. foiir animals and a miristrel'Va'nder,, through the audieiice clowning; blow- ' ing bubbles, playing pattyVcaJice and ,• tsking. They sit,oh either'side Of the stage throughout the play, reacting to various situations. ' ':"...The setting is ancient Rome, the minstrel (Pete Kniskern) tells dienceVand Androcles is' the slave of a" despicable miser, Pantalone (Jo Anne Jeffrey). Androcles has been captured from a peaceful farm life and longs to be free, "so I can find me," he sings. It is appropriate to mention that' most parts are played bj^ girls, a fact some of the children Monday found a bit confusing. It doesn't matter so much with Androcles, a girl plays the. part with no ill effects-but Pantalone's jniece's'4oyer Lelio (Janet Katel) probably, shouldn't stand quite so knock- kneed. Well, no matter. The miser's niece Isabella (Laura Laughlin) wants to marry Lelio and collect the dowry with which her •' skinflint uncle has been entrusted but i : 'doesn't want to relinquish. To keep the gold, Pantalone engages a captainv(a:-? bold teper as played by Mike .Weck> erly) to keep the lovers apart. But the'- vain, jfoqlish captain (he claims si; women "thwooned" over him that day) is easily tricked by Androcles, and the lovers, joined, head for the woods. They are pursued by Androcles, who has found the dowry hidden by the mi- ; ,; ser but forgotten by Isabella. Androcles is pursued by the miser and the captain, who think the slave has, run away with the gold, and all are^pursued, at one time or another, byVthe * lion (played with some Burt , mor'by Pat Sutteriin). : It's all the> chasing through' the;, woods that will grab the child's attention. Tension builds as Androcles first eludes the miser and captain, then' meets the "big roar/' first as foe and 1 later as friend, and, finally is captured by her pursuers. •'.- .

The committee was told that the'ca- lendar will be distributed to governmental officials and selected groups so there will be no overlapping when events are scheduled. ; The calendar includes on,e change in the schedule of the Freedom Train. Previously, the train was not scheduled to appear near Freeport. if was announced Monday night that the train will appear in Rockford for three days beginning Aug. 8. \ , The deadline for the submission of designs in the Stephenson County Flag contest has been extended to Oct. 15.

Brinkmeier, D-Freeport. State Sen. John Roe, R-Rpchelle r said concerning the vetoes "That's a ,shame. It really upsets me. I'm very discouraged by the action. Our district contributes a great deal to Motor Fuel Tax and we don't get our share 1 back. ; That means Carroll County has had no widening or resurfacing in three years'." . •;••' —..-.- .. '.'"• % In expressing disapppintment^Rep. V^ 1 Harlan Rigney, R-Red Oak, considers there has been "somewhat of a double cross" by Walker, in that "I thought there was an understanding when we approved the $200 million reappropria- tibn for freeways, .he (Walker) would approve at least some of these projects." Rep. Richard Mulcahey, D-Durand, could not be reached for comment today, but he has been an advocate of more road projects within the ; 35th District and personally sponsored or cosponsored the add-ons. Brinkmeier, Rigney and Roe said * they wojuld vote to override -the.rpalf job vetoes. To overrule the governor 60 per cent majorities in both housjes are needed. The 35th District legislators were skeptical of the override chances. "It, all depends on how many, are bitter about this," Brinkmeier 'said. ''My guess is there won't be enough." When the legislature reconvenes in October, the vetoes can be considered, Richard Adorjan, a DOT spokesman, said this morning the Walker Mother-Baby Care Course /s Offered $ A Mother and Baby Care Instructors™ course will be conducted ( by the Red Cross beginning July 21, Mrs".
