FRIDAY, MAY 31, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THREE Program Starts in Area 17 Meet Volunteer Tutors Of Literacy and Learning A total of 17 persons embarked on a program designed to improve their reading and mathematical skills Tuesday, attending a "get acquainted" tutors. The session with their tutoring program is part of the Governor's Committee on Literacy and Learning, set up to attack the school dropout problem. Nine volunteer tutors, all stu- the Alton campus of Illinois University, will HARD HAT IS HERO A steel hat saved William Morris (second from left) from possible severe injury Wednesday morning as a tree limb (on ground) fell 20 feet and struck him. The branch glanced off his hat, slid down his shoulder, and fell to the ground. He was pushing over a dead tree on a lot between St. Joseph Avenue and Wallace Street, clearing the lot for apartments to be erected for the Rev. G. L. Gruver by Barton Lumber Co. Tells His View of Branch Banking dents of Southern meet with the pupils once a week at three locations for sessions of about an hour. Five other persons signed up for the initial class of the Jobs for Youth program, a companion project to the tutoring phase of the ;overnor's committee. The tutoring project is voluntary, it was explained, and tutors and their pupils worked out their own arrangements concerning time and place for teaching sessions, pairing of tutor with pupil and the specific goal each is striving for. Because there were not enough :utors available to assign one for each pupil, several of the tutors agreed to take two classes. All utoring will be done on an individual basis. Five potential pupils were placed on a waiting list because of the Shortage of tutors. Schedule Sessions in the tutoring p r o- gram are scheduled for Tuesday nights at the Union Electric Co. office, Wednesdays at SIU and Thursdays at the new community center on Dooley Drive. All sessions will begin at 7 p.m. Other agencies which have indicated their willingness to provide space for tutoring sessions on nights that will not conflict with their other activities are the East Alton Community Center, Wood River Public Library and Alton YMCA. Sessions will be arranged as more volunteer tuors become available. Don Neumann of the Alton office of Illinois Belle Telephone Co. local chairman of the governr's committee, explained that the volunteer tutors are not professional teachers but can help others to learn, as has been proved in similar programs in Chicago. The chief advantage of the program, Neumann pointed out, is in the "one for one" relationship, in which each pupil receives individual help at the speed which is best for him. William Holder of Roxana Schools and Aaron Peterson of Alton Schools will meet with the tutors at 2 p.m. Sunday in Roxana High School to offer a few pointers to the volunteers teaching techniques. Offer Assistance Other educators in the are have offered assistance in th form of advice, spare material and encouragement. Neuman said, but the tutors will be o their own in deciding how muc assistance they need and wha materials and approach will b best for their own pupils. Following the get-acquainte session Tuesday, members of th committee discussed the degre of relationship that would be bes between the tutoring project an the Jobs for Youth Program. On suggestion was that a single steel ing committee or advisory boarc be created for both projects wit separate directors for each. William Yontz, who has b e e i named to direct the organizatioi of the Jobs for Youth Program discussed the need tor an instruc tor and the importance of "lei work" in interesting local em ployers in the project. Another committee meeting ha been set for June 11 to establish permanent organizational struc ture for keeping both program going and for advancing the Job for Youth program. It will be held at 7 p.m. at th Illinois State Employment Serv ice office, 87 Henry St. SPRINGFIELD, 111.-Lawrence Keller Jr., president of the Alton Banking and Trust Co., testified Wednesday before the Illinois House Committee on Banks and Savings and Loan Associations in favor of removing the restriction on limited branch banking and said that by doing so, "the legislature and the people of Illinois can take a giant step toward true freedom of enterprise — and at the same time eliminate the need for federal intervention." The committee is holding hearings on House Bill 1061, which provides an opportunity for citizens to vote on the question of 15- mile limited branch banking for Illinois. Keller joined other leaders of banking, agriculture, industry and labor from across the state in speaking for th"e proposed legislation. "When any other type of commercial endeavor meets a problem such as that faced by our bankers — that of extending services, of continuing to do business with customers who have moved to the suburbs — they open a branch where it is needed," Keller said. "There is no earthly reason why banking should be different." Keller pointed out that present legislative prohibitions against Illinois banks establishing brunches within geographical limits is irrational and contrary to American principles of freedom of enterprise. "What's more," he said, "we are inviting federal intervention in banking here by our rigid re- Tot Not Hurt , • Seriously by Acid in Eye Richard Pearson, 2%, escaped serious injury to the right eye after splashing sodium salicylic acid into it Wednesday afternoon.

"Truly, it will be an anachronism to see our federal government have to come into Illinois to remote government control of ati over-regulated industry. Even so, such action will only increase the trend toward federal control. It will usurp another of our state's rights." In his statement, Keller deplored the attitude of so many Illinois bankers who refuse even to consider the problem and have aligned themselves with n o n- bank financial insitutions such as currency exchanges in their "present effort to preserve the present artificial system." "Most of these institution would not even "were it exist," not for he the concluded, backward, stubborn attitude of some bankers. Most of them have sprung up to fill, in a very efficient way, the vacuum left by our shortage of true banking facilities." • • 323 Belle St. 508 W.
