Areas By IHE ASSOCIATED I'HESS Showers and thunderstorms dampened much of the country today and gave portions of the Plains and Ihe Mississippi Valley a heavy sloshing. Locally severe weather hit sections of Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri. A six-hour, wind-whipped downpour in Omaha, Neb., during the night dumped nearly 3 inches of rain across the area. V inds were clocked at 67 miles an hour. Des moines, Iowa, measured a 1%' inch rain and heavy thundershowers crackled across Missouri Isolated showers sprinkled southern Florida and the south* ern plateau. restaurant and taproom, a latter-day county seat landmark and mecca on the courthouse square for sports fans and politicians for more than 13 years, will bow out of existence at the close of business Sunday night. The announcement was made today by Sheriff George Musso, a former star pmyer and captain of the Chicago Bears professional football team—and owner of the building. The restaurant and tavern in the building had been operated under lease by William Leece of Collinsville since Musso's election as sheriff in November, 1958. Quarters in the building now used for the tavern and restaurant, at 133 Purcell St., on the north side of the courthouse square, will be leased to Don Ohl. former Edwardsville High School and University ol Illinois basketball star, as the location for a new office supply firm. Office Supplies Ohl, queried today by Ihe Telegraph, said he hopes lo open the office supply business in the Musso building by the second week in September. The firm will be managed, he said, by Edward Fick of Edwardsville, associated for 12 years with the E. J. Sheppard Office Supply Co. in downtown Edwardsville, now going out of business. Since . is graduation in 1958 from Illinois, Ohl has played two seasons with the Caterpillar Tractors basketball team at Hast Peoria, and now is due to report Sept. 18 with the Detroit Pistons tor his initial season with the professional cage team. Musso, who played 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears as guard and tackle, serving as captain of the professional football team for eight of those years while the Bears were winning national championships, operated t h e tavern and restaurant business here bearing his name for 11 years after acquiring the building in February. 1947, from the late Harlun Bartlett, To Keep Pictures Musso said today he plans to dispose of fixtures and stock in the place as soon as possible, but will place in storage the scores of autographed pictures ol stars in all fields of sports which have been an attraction at the tavern. Many of the photographs were autographed for Musso by his teammates on the Bears team- such football immortals as Harold "Red" Grange, Bronko Na» gurski, Sid Luckman and "Bull- Rt. 155, the Great River Road, through the downtown business district of Alton and the location of a facility over which U. S. Rt. 67 will be marked, connecting the Clark Bridge approach to the new belt line north of Alton. "During the development of planning for Federal Aid Rt. 155 through the Alton area It was necessary to determine a location which would satisfy the following conditions: (A) Provide a connection northerly to the Great River Road; (B) Provide an adequate connection to the Alton business district; (C) Provide connections to the Clark Bridge. "ft has now been determined that the most practical plan includes the development of a 4* lane divided facility generally along the existing alignment of \V. Broadway, westerly of Piasa street. This will probably require right-of-way acquisition and some building removal in order to obtain an adequate cross-section between Piasa and State streets.
