THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THIRTY-FIVE Council Approves Sweeper Purchase Purchase of a new street sweep er was approved by unanimou; vote of the 13 aldermen at Wed nesday night's Alton city counci meeting. By resolution, Mayor P. W. Day was authorized to enter into a contract for the acquisition on a lease- purchase basis of a new Elgin sweeper at cost of $12,449.04 with trade-in of the present sweeper. The purchase was authorized on recommendation of the streets committee, presented by Chairman J. P. Mclaughlin. He reported that bids had been taken, and that an Elgin sweepei was offered .tor immediate delivery at $12,449.04 while a Wayiv sweeper was offered at $12,993.96. Both sweepers had been demonstrated here a few days ago, he said, and the acquisition of the Elgin machine, sfimn make as the one to be Iradcd-in, had been re commended by HIP public: works department staff. The new job, lie said, will be diesel-powered, with added horsepower lo cope with Alton hills, and will have an improved hydraulic control system to facilitate its operation. The street sweeper to be swapped in (lie purchase deal has been out of service several weeks because of needed repairs. No action was taken to restore it to use because of the project for its replacement. As a consequence Alton has had no street sweeping in I he last several weeks. Securing a new sweeper was taken up ut budget-making time, and it was determined that provision of a new one, on lease- rental basis, would be more economical than to rebuild the one in service for the last five years. In the amended appropriation measure enacted last night an item for this year's cost under the lease-rental contract was increased to $4,800. Gunman Hikes Haul in Return Robbery- si'.- LOUIS (AP) - A calm, neatly dressed gunman, whom witnesses said was the same man who took $4,500 in a robbery two months ago, returned to the Peoples State Bank in surburban Maplewood Wednesday and escaped with about $5,000. Bank Vice President Harry Harman, 34, one of the victims in both robberies, told police It was definitely the same man. Harman and bank President Edwin Steffen, pursued the robber, but the man escaped in a car about a block and a half from the bank. Police said traffic was comparatively light at the time of the holdup. "It was just like the last time," Harman told police. "Apparently he's no amateur." Several employes, but no customers, were in the bank at the lime the stockily-built, dark complexioned robber entered and approached Harman's window. Harman said the man had a 32-caliber pistol in one hand and a paper bug in the other. Police said Robert C. Svoboda, 46, an assistant cashier who had been talking with Harman when the robber entered, was ordered into the next cage and forced to hand over more money. Harman told police the robber threatened to kill anyone who followed him.

Dr. Lowell T. Coggeshall, who also is vice president of the University of Chicago, made the sug gestion at the opening session of a two-day conference on dru safety. About 300 representatives of scientific and professional socie ties, academic institutions, industry and government are attending the session. He said the body should be composed of "members whose special knowledge and integrity would automatically set (hem up as almost final authorities, yet their operations should stay out side the formal government struc lure so that the respect of the scientific community as well as the government bodies is main taincd." He said the group of experts would be a "reference body to which government and industry would automatically turn for as- islance." The Commission on Drug Safety was established in August aft er the discovery that the since- banncd tranquilizer thalidomide was blamed for deformities in Hundreds of European babies. The commission was financed by a no-strings-attached grant from the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association.
