Simon Writes Personal Privacy Faces Assembly "I can't seem to get used to it, Jen—the kids grown up and no piggy-banks to bust into." Would Re*Zone Part Of Bethalto Area BETHALTO — A zoning hearing, set by the Madison County Zoning Board, will be conducted June 28 on rezoning a section of a farm, on the westerly limits of Bethalto, from one family residential to highway business district. Hershel Funkliauser, owner of the property, 1ms requested the section of his property, 1130 feet in width and 451 in depth, be rezoned. He plans to sell the property. The section is a portion of a 70-acre farm. Funkliauser said he has three prospects for the property, but would not comment on the nature of the businesses of the prospects. The hearing is slated for 10 a.m. on the premises.

Present plans call for construction of eight additional lanes to double the former capacity.

The Butcher The Best in Fine Meats . . . PORK CHOPS GROUND BEEF r 49* BAR B 0 RIBS 59 C T\vn major pirc-cs of legislation we fncr in the final weeks of the legislature are involved with the question of whether Illinois should permit the use of electronic equipment that records our private conversations without our permission. There are distinguished and responsible people on Iwth sides and the question is so fundamental to our basic rights that all citizens should take an interest. There is equipment which can record your phone conversations, and I am told equipment which can be pointed in your direction from more than 500 feet which can record a conversation between two people. One measure before the legislature says that this would be legal when authorized by certain law enforcement officials. The other measure says that all of it is 11 egal. Those who favor its use include people like the superintendent of Ihicago's police, Orlando Wilson, wiio unquestionably is doing a fine job in that city. Wilson says this could be a big help in tracking down hoodlum elements. Those who take the opposite view — and I am among them — feel that this is an invasion of the basic privacy to which every citizen is entitled. When our nation was founded, we established certain principles about the privacy of the home, aimed particularly at the practice of camping British soldiers in a home. The great threat to our privacy today is certainly n o t British soldiers; these new electronic devices could be. There will always be threats to freedom, both at home and abroad. We constantly should be on guard against them, whether that threat is the tyranny of Communism or the gradual chipping away of freedoms we possess. I frankly would not worry about granting someone like Orlando Wilson this authority. But by law you cannot give such authority to one man. All. law enforcement officials are not decent men. Giving them the authority to record private conversations could result in great abuses. We have had more than a few experiences in Illinois where law enforcement officials were primarily not interested in serving the public, but in serving certain underworld elements. Giving such people the authority to record private conversation could result in wholesale blackmail.

If we want to whisper it to our neighbor without having it recoixled, we should have that light. To give a citizen anything less than that is to compromise his freedom. Seldom is the legislature faced with such a basic decision on a lorn is the right to condemn our fundamental principle of our giv- ernment. >peration is continued public interest in seeing that we elect decent, honest sheriffs and state's attorneys. If we do that, we can control of other problem. If we don't do that, wire-tapping and recording of private conversations won't do the trick either. I hope that we do not become so eager to stop one evil that we authorize a greater evil.
