OPEN 9 TO 9 DAILY—SUNDAYS NOON TILL 6 Just East of the Viaduct in East Alton 409 ST. LOUIS AVE. Recommend Interstate Route Through Cairo CARBONDAkE, 111. (AP) - A consulting firm says estimated financial reimbursement to taxpayers makes routing Interstate 24 through the Cairb area more beneficial than extending the highwaj deep into Hlino's. The firm, Wilbur Smith & Associates of ^New Haven, Conn., recommended in June that the defense highway between Nashville, Tenn., and Missouri cross the Ohio and Mississippi rivers in (ho Cairo area. Reasons for the choice, which conflicts with hopes of Illinois and Kentucky highway officials, were made available Wednesday in a copy of the June report. Officials are studying the recommendation. Construction of 1-24 past Cairo, the firm said, would cost $7.8 million more than if the highway crossed the Ohio 30 miles upstream at Metropolis and headed into Williamson County as Kentucky and Illinois groups desire. A Nashville-Cairo route, however, would return $3.24 for each $1 spent in tax funds compared to only $3 for the route via Metropolis, the firm estimated. The report outlined the various routes estimated impacts on population, industry and tourism. But it emphasized the Cairo route" estimated advantages in highway safety, easier terrain, less bridge construction, travel savings and financial returns. The cost per mile for the Cairo route, the report said, would be $1,011,600 compared to $1,014,500 via Metropolis. The Metropolis route would mean 7 miles less in new road construction than the 184 miles of new roadwork under the Cairo recommendation, it added. The firm said motorists driving between Nashville and St. Louis would, save more in driving time, accident costs and travel expense .sing the Cairo 1-24 route and 1-55 in Missouri The Cairo savings figure is $33.5 million annually compared to $29.6 million for the Metropolis route. Illinois interests have argued a route across the Ohio at Metropolis and connecting with 1-57 about 40 miles north of Cairo, wbuld mean much to Southern Illinois' growing tourist industry. The report acknowledged the Metropolis route would spell tourist advantages to the region's Crab Orchard Lake and proposed Rend Lake. But the Cairo route, it said, ending south of Cape Girardeau, Mo., would stimulate activity at five Missouri slate parks. Cairo interests have been urging Missour to back the Cairo route. Red Poland Seeking Surplus U. S. Grain WARSAW, Poland (AP) - U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Orville L.

California Legislature Near End SACRAMENTO, Calif.. (AP) A brawling special session of the California Legislature fought its way toward a close today. Only approval of a $50 million school support bill—with neither he money nor the terms urged ?y Gov. Edmund G. .Brown—remained to end 25 days of battling over taxes, spending' and just plain politics. Republicans took up the cry of 'bossism" in the aftermath of a ock-in vote by Democrats, exercising a 52-28 majority, to tighten their already firm grip on the assembly. The Democrats, led by Speaker Jesse M. Unruh, retaliated swlft- y against tlie GOP holdout on passage of a $106 supplemental state budget that forced the lower •louse into a 24-hour session. The heavy oak doors finally were opened and the lock-in lifted shortly after noon Wednesday as nine Republicans provided t he margin for the required two-thirds vote or 54. The final tally was 60 to 17. Tempers flared high again as the Democrats rammed through, 47-26, a change in rules to give them the iron-clad control over choosing the speaker and committee chairmen. Unruh promptly declared all 27 chairmanships vacant^including four held by Republicans—with the exception of two housekeeping bodies. Pickets Try New Approach NEW YORK (AP)^Pickets returned to their demonstration at a Brooklyn hospital site today wilh a new tactic and apparently sobered up by the nearness of a riot. Yet they chanted " brutality must go" as they toaradec In demand for more jobs for Negroes and Puerto Ricans in the public Downstate Medical Centei construction site. Other pickets who sat in the hospital driveway blocking a truck left when policemen advisee them they were courting arrest "This morning we are experi menting with a delaying tact! where the pickets <W11 lit kfid delay the trucks, the« Mlk oil," said th§ ReVi MiltoflfGalanHsofl, a fresbvterlan'. Negro attfl bfie of the leaders of the fcrooklyfi itiove- triefit* "it's a ftalter oi consdencTs of the individual whether he chooses to be arrested." A force of ,234 policemen kept watch on the demonstration. A surging crowd of 100 angry, shouting Negro and white pickets almost got out of control Wednesday. Foot, patrolmen using nightsticks, and mounted policemen bodily pushed back the demonstrators, subduing them until a leader could persuade them to disperse. Twenty-two persons, including seven clergymen, were arrested. Fourteen demonstrators were arrested elsewhere in the city Wednesday. About 750 arrests have been made in the past three weeks, mostly at the Brooklyn hospital site.
