(AP)-A suit by a Galesburg, HI., firm challenging the Wisconsin motor vehicle law has been dismissed by Judge Richard W. Bardwell in Dane County Circuit Court. The firm, Knox Motor Service, Inc., challenged the constitutionality of a 1961 law under which the state collects a $10 annual fee for each vehicle operated by common motor carriers in Wisconsin. The fees are turned over to a private rate and tariff rating bureau. The firm filed suit to collect a $5 refund for each of six trucks it said were engaged in intrastate commerce in Wisconsin in 1962. Judge Bardwell, in dismissing the suit, upheld the state's contention that the firm is a foreign corporation, not licensed to do business in Wisconsin, and, therefore, has no standing to challenge ducting guided tours of the building. For the first six months of 1963, when the legislature was in session, Herman counted a total of 114,252 who came to his information desk on the first floor of the capilol, to get instructions on where to go and what to see. However, he says, "you can count on at least another 100,000 Who visited the building but didn't come to the desk so that they could be counted." Of that total, during the first six months of this year, 86,921 were school children who came from 1,462 different schools all over the state. This includes grade school, junir high school and high school level students. Again of that total, 2,091 people were from states other than 111- nois and 12,488 came from this state. •100,000 In 1001 Herman estimates that in 1961, when he counted about 400,000 people visiting the capitol, the high was established that year. This year, he feels, the volume of visiting traffic is such that he will be counting a new record by the end of 1963. For one thing, Herman says, he still has the 12-day period for the State Fair coming up, and during that time he expects thousands upon thousands to go through the building. During the legislative session, he averaged between 1,200 and 1,400 daily, but even then, the busiest day was May 3 when 61 schools sent 4,040 students to tour the capitol. That pai-ticular day, however, the General Assembly was not in session. More and more schools are including a tour of the capitol each semester for students in classes n government, Herman said. 'And they're most welcome too," he adds. "Some of these youngs- ers can't get enough informa- ion about their state government, he state officers and everything else, and we're only too glad to give them all that data we've •ot." Visit Governor Too But the legislature isn't the on- y attraction for visitors or delegation of students in the capitol. Many of them want to visit the offices of Gov. Otto Kerner and Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier and whenever possible, this is arranged for the school delegations. "There is also a big upsurge in tourists to Illinois," Berman says. This 'Land of Lincoln 1 slogan is a much bigger attraction than you might think." It is the policy of Berman's boss, Secretary Carpentier, to riave each guide talk personally and unhurriedly with every visl- or who wants information. That keeps the guides. busy all day, seven days a week, alitl all of hem have the same reaction: The vork is interesting and they like t. Each man works only five day.- i week, of course, but the schedule means Sunday work on a ro- ating basis. After the State Fair ends, it vill almost be time for school to again. Then, schools again vill be sending government classes (and other social science classes) to visit the capitol. More. Enr.h Year More' and more of them cohie each year," Berman says, "and luring the last six months of this year, we expect more than we've lad previously." Vacations for the guides will have ended by then, of course. Berman himself just finished his vacation to be back by the time the State Fair begins. He visited Europe, especially to see a son stationed in Germany as a first ieulenant with the Army. "You didn't happen to take a guided tour in Europe, did you?" e was asked. "I sure did," he replied, "and enjoyed it very, very milch." Berman originally came from Aurora, but he has been in Spring- ield for many years now, having managed a theater here before he legan working as a capitol guide even years ago. "Show business is a good background for this," he says. "It iclps when you meet the public— o many of them—every day. You {now it doesn't seem too long ago vhen I took my first tour of this tuilding. I don't mean guiding a our; I mean taking it as a tour- st. And I still find the place as nteresting as ever." 6 From Edwardsville Admitted to Hospital EDWARDSVILLE — Six area esidents were admitted Friday to t.
