BRIEF GASES ATTACHE CASES GODWIN'S 114 E. Bchvy. I'h. HO 5-7756 "Alton's Commercial Stiitionor" scntativps to lengthen the terms of General Assomhly members. Ever since 1 was first elected to the House in 1946. my feeling lias gwwn that this is a slep long overdue. At present. Senate members j serve four-year terms; House members serve only two years. All representatives must run in each evcn-numlicrcd year, while half the Senators run in every other even-numbered year. My bill would provide for six- year Senate terms and four-year Science Shrinks Piles New Way Without Surgery Stops Itch—Relieves Pain House terms. Thr argument most urgently offered against it. namely that it \\ill produce a situation in which ;lic legislator is not longer as close lo the people, can, I think, be met. I believe this bill will, on the contrary, produce men and women who are more alert and more able to serve as representatives. It will do this by making legisla- ,ivr service more attractive to the highest caliber of people. Unfortunate. I find it most unfortunate that a new legislator in the House has only one legislative session in which to demonstrate his abili ty to the electorate, and that he must return almost immediately :o the hustings to wage a campaign for re-election on such a necessarily short record. What is worse, he must face New York, N. Y. (Special )For the first time science has found a new healing substance with the astonishing ability to shrink hemorrhoids, stop itching, and relieve pain - without •urgery. In one hernorrhoid case after another /'verystrikingimprove- ment" was reported and verified by a doctor's observations. Pain was relieved promptly. And, while gently relieving pain, actual reduction or retraction (shrinking) took place. And most amazing of all this improvement was maintained in cases where a doctor's observations were continued over a period of many months! Jn fact, results were so thorough that sufferers were able to make such astonishing state- ments as "Piles have ceased to be a problem!" And among thcso sufferers were a very wide variety of hemorrhoid conditions, some of 10 to 20 years' standing. All this, without the use^f narcotics, anesthetics or astringents of any kind. The secret is a new healing substance (Bio- Dyne®)—the discovery of a world-famous research institution. Already, Bio-Dyne is in wide use for healing injured tissue on all parts of the body. This new healing substance is offered in suppository or ointment form called Preparation H$.

Preparation H is sold at all drug counters. the next campaign, and the next (if there is one) knowing that it will take a steady toll of his income in order to finance it, unless one of two things is true: he is rich, oi\ he has a rich benefactor. Now there are some members of both houses who are not par ticularly well off. More of their kind would have the opportunity lo run if Ihc cost of campaigning were not so high, and the legislature might well become closer to the people's needs as a result. Most Readily Controlled I would go beyond this argument to remark that it is the candidate of moderate means who is most easily dominated by some special interest in his district, and it is the elected representative of moderate means whose vole is most readily controlled by forces contrary lo the public interest. Above all, longer terms would The Newest, Cleanest Laundry in Southern Illinois Godfrey Quick Clean Center NOW OPEN • Self Servicc Laundr y 5526 HUMBERT RD. (Next to Playmor) GODFREY OPEN 7 A.M.

Legislators' terms would be at least as long as the terms of state-wide elected executive officers, such as the Attorney General. In sum, therefore, I think we can say that my bill will make the General Assembly more responsive to the will of the people than ever before, and will at the same time improve the quality of legislative service immensely.
