Shepard, will get time off from her studies at Prindpia College to watch her father command Apollo 14'to the moon. She win meet the rest of her family at Cape Kennedy in Florida on Jan. 31 to watch the launch, then return to the Houston space center to wait the remaining nine days of flight, until her father lands safely back on earth. "I am very excited for him," Alice said. "Its been 10 years since he has been up, and I am glad he is getting his chance again." Although flying to the moon may be considered as somewhat of an unusual and dangerous occupation, Alice L and C College OK's two-year vocation program doesn't seem a bit worried about the up-coming trip to the moon. "I am not worried or scared about the trip," Alice reported. "I know they wouldn't send them up there if they didn't think they could get them back." Although Alice is interested in the space program, she doesn't plan to concentrate her studies in any type of curriculum dealing with space or science. "I like to follow the space program," Alice said.

Mayor Keasler, a trustee appointed last spring by the other trustees to fill die mayor's chair until the election, and Eugene L. Barnett were the only two to submit their petitions Monday, which was the first day for filing. Robert L. Beachum, the only other candidate to take out a petition for mayor, has until Feb. 1 to file. Baraett, in the office of village clerk Lawrence Parr, selected the numbers, and came up with the number 2 spot on the ballot. RIDC proposes to use films, presentations and printed materials in the coming year to improve the image of vocational - technical education with teachers, counselors, students and parents in area high schools. A mass media campaign will also be conducted in newspapers, radio and TV, possibly culminating with a Vocational - Occupational Exhibition, James said. The RIDC had originally requested a $2,000 donation from Lewis & Clark. The board also approved the appointment of Virginia Lee Foster to the. $11,500 job of coordination of the nursing program. She will assist the program's director, Sister Virginia Boos. The board also agreed to rent the Monticello Chapel to Community Christian Church, after June 30. The church will use the chapel Sundays and Wednesday nights and it will be used for Lewis & Clark classes the rest of the time. will." She said her primary interest were either in music or religion, but added that she felt it was too early to make any definite decision on her major concentration. Alice told the Telegraph that some of the astronauts families were close artd others were not. "Actually the astronaut's wives are much closer than the children are," Alice said. "The wives have teas and the like for each other, but with the exception of a few special families I don't see many other children." Alice added that she isn't acquainted with Edgar Mitchell or Stuart Roosa,, who will be making the flight with her father because she has been away from home quite a bit recently. "I really haven't been home much recently," Alice said. "Before I came here I went to the upper school in St. Louis, (Principia prep school) and I haven't really had the opportunity to meet the others." Alice plans to pursue a four year education at Principia and told the Telegraph that she likes the area and the people she has met during the time she has spent in Elsah.
