(AP Wirephoto) Defines AGBG Stand On Day's Increase Hugh Baxter, president of the Alton Citizens for Better Government, said today the ACBG has not protested Mayor P. W. Day's increase in pay. Baxter said members of the organization as private citizens have been questioning the $100 a month increase to Mayor Day as Liquor Commissioner and have been questioning the legality of the pay increase. "The ACBS has taken no ac- toni of any kind in this matter and not one cent of ACBG money has been user or will be," Baxter said. Baxter' said, "It has been a long established and fundamental principle that elected officials may not have their salaries or income increased during their term of office. To have it otherwise would leave the tax payers defenseless and the public treasuries un guarded." The Alton City Council restored a $1,200 a year fee to Day as liquor Commissioner in May of this year after the former five- man council had taken it out of the budget. Correction Mrs. Frank E.
