SAfURBAV, JULY 13,1963 ALTON EVENING fELEGRAPtt SAttE Carpentier Ready To Start His Try By DON to. OtlAMlHCUtAlN Teloffrniili Oorfpftpomlent SPRINGFIELD, 111. (Special) — Political fireworks will bo allot off nt East Moline, Aug, 4, when Secretary of Slate Charles F. Cnrpcntier mokes his scheduled announcement for the Illinois Rcrmbllcnri gubernatorial nomination. The Cnrpenller-for-Governor committee says it; will be "a real old fashioned rally, complete With bands, banners and a live elephant." Dr. W. C. Sloele, committee chairman, said the rally "started out as a hometown testimonial by Carpentlor's friends, but Interest has been so great that 'Carpentier Day 1 Is turning Into a rally of Illinois Republicans, It looks ns If most, of the top Republicans plan to be here, There will be motor caravans of Republican delegations from many parts of the state.' Because of the expected many motorcades and buses Stcele and the Rock Island County Re publican Central Committee have acquired more than 25 acres of parking space >ln the vicinity of the high school where the rally will be staged. Two big party wheels sure to be present are State Senate President Pro Tom Arthur J. Bidwill, and Supreme Court, Justice Ray I. Kllngbiol, East; Moline. Senator Bidwill was a scat- mate in the Illinois Senate with Carpenlier during the Secretary's 13 years of Senate service, and both with two other Senators shared a comfortably^ sized bachelor's home in Springfield's residential district. Justice Kllnbiel' like Carpentier, a former East; Moline Mayor, and a lite-time friend of the Secretary, will introduce Carpentier at the rally. Mr. GOI The Secretary's vote-getting strength in the 1956 and 1960 state elections has earned him the label "Mister Republican.' In 1956 he was reelected to a second term by 606,270 votes second only to Dwight Eisen bower's vote for President; tlia year. In I960, he dropped to t plurality of 384,916 but was the only Republican to win in an otherwise Democratic state sweep. A strong "shot in the arm' for Carpentier's .candidacy wai the announcement last; week bj House Speaker John W. Lewi Marshall, that he is going to at tend the East Moline rally. Ask ed if that meant he was in th secretary's corner for the Re publican gubernatorial nomina tion, the Speaker grinned an said: "Well, I am not goin there just for the ride."

One fair where his entourage stopped the week before was the Western Illinois Fair at Grlggs- vllle In Pike County where he had exhibit 'space. Not far away was a slate exhibit, sponsored >y Secretary Carpentier, a trailer which was used to display services Carpentler's'office supplies. Office employes were available to serve persons wanting a driver license or data regarding motor vehicle laws. Candidate Percy was accompanied on his visits to Grlggs- vllle, Carbondale, Metropolis, and Melvin (Ford County), Rushvlllc (Schuyler) and other counties, by members of his family, eight teenage musicians and three campaign helpers. Campaign helpers photographed exhibit visitors and placed the pictures next to a photograph of Percy and a 'Percy campaign card saying "pulling together for Illinois." Handy Man At Metropolis where he launch- el his clownstate campaign arller this 'month. Percy met ylth Republican'leaders at the rtassac County courthouse, spent art of the day shaking hands nd attended a "get acquainted inner." He regretted Gov. Otto <erner's intention to veto a late cigarette tax increase to elp finance expansion of state arks. Half of the funds from the ax would have been used for ark expansion with the other alf going into the state trea- ury general revenue fund. It vould have raised $13 million mnually but Kerner said he vas vetoing it "to hold the line gainst new or increased taxes." t was the only lax increase bill passed by the recent general issembly. The proposal had as ils chief iponsor, Sen. Gordon Kerr (R- Brookport) who said the revenue 'ould have helped expand re- reational area in Southern Illinois state parks. Percy was accompanied at Metropolis by Senator Kerr. The Governor in Celling a recent press conference le would veto the bill admitted, liow.ever, it was a "good idea" but reminded be was pledged against new or increased state taxes. Another major possibility for GOP governor is Cook County Republican Chairman Hayes Robertson, Flossmoor, who is making" like a candidate. He envisions at least three candidates, saying "it won't be only Carpentier and Percy. And that's for sure." Robertson, a former state senator, made a strong bid for Republican governor against former Gov. William G. Stratton in 1960. An Extra Service City Will Haul Cut Grass If It Is Put in Container Grass on Alton lawns has boon setting a now high record for growth this yenr, hut the city refuse collection service is conlin- ulng to nid householders by moving thoir cuttings to the city dump. 'There's nothing in the Alton refuse collection ordinance to provide that the city collect grass cuttings or leaves," said Sanitation Supt. Leo Fitxgerald, "but, with one restriction the sanitation department is giving this extra service. "The pick-up crews cannot pick Up loose grass, but cuttings and leaves will be taken providing they are placed in containers for ready loading into the collection grucks."

"The truck men will not take grass or lenvos left in loose piles on the ground." Fitzgerald said his department has had many inquiries about collection of grass cuttings this year. The volume is greater than ever before, and it has been necessary to emphasize the rule that loose grass cannot be collected. The extra service, unprovided by ordinance, can be maintained, he said, only if the householders cooperate by observing the rule sol to make the grass colleclion possible.
