Wesley Rogers, 3-1, who has been living near Terre Haute, admitted to police he tool? ?9fi from the downtown Alton tavern in 1953. However, a check with the stale's attorney's office showed the statute had expired, most of the principals wore dead and the tavern was now under a different ownership. Police were advised that prosecution would be to no avail, so Rogers was allowed to walk out. Rogers was arrested Wednesay on charges of running a sop sign and intoxication. He was fined $25 on the charges, but a police check of records showed he was wanted Tor the old robbery. E. E. FLATT SPRINGFIELD, (Special) - _iov.

Under the act, $250,000 will bo made available ns grants to match !Xpendltures by downstate com minifies and local organizations for promoting their tourist allrac- lons. Another $150,000 will be Used lo match tourist promotion activ itios in Cook County. The remainder of the appropriation is for statewide promotion. The Board of Economic Development Is responsible for admin storing the act. In signing the bill into 1 a w, Gov. Kcrner pointed out Unit it represents "the first serious, concentrated effort on the part of his State to Increase the tourist businesses In Illinois. Through this program of matching grants, I am confident we will see a substantial gain for not only those business which benefit directly C. F. O'NEAL Baptist Picnic at Salu Park Saturday Morning Star Baptist Church will have a picnic all day Saturday al Salu Park, for the benefit of the building fund.

Appropriates $500*000 Bill to Promote Tourism in State Should Be Boon Hellrimg's Bid Wins Chapel Job Hoi I rung Construction Co. of Alton was low bidder for erection of the chapel at SI. Anthony's Hos pitnl, according to Mother M. Agatha, administrator. Work on the new addition will begin soon, Mother Agatha said, and the biilding is expected to be completed by July 1, 1964. The chapel will adjoin the present hospital to the south and wil have seating capacity for 150 and a choir loft. The lower level of HIP building will feature dining facil ities for the sisters. The exterior will be brick masonry with extensive use of aggregate precast concrete wall facing. Stained glass windows will be fitted in exposed aggregate pre- cast concrete frames. A 50-foot high free-standing bell tower will dominate the south facade anc will be open on the west, exposing three suspended bells. The interior wall of the nave and sanctuary will be faced with marble and walnut paneling, highlighted by glass mosaics. The nave will be illuminated during the day by light filtering through the stained glass windows and ai night by suspended spun-brass chandeliers. William J. Ruoff of Drake-0' Meara Associates, St. Louis is the architect of the new structure "We have a largo number of oiirisl attractions throughout Illinois, but we have been failing to 'iiplurc our share of the tourist Business because too few persons ire aware of them." The governor noted that an increase In tourism within Illinois vould also be beneficial to t h <> stain government through ad- litional revenues in hotel a n d motel room, retail occupation, find gasoline taxes. "It will also mean greater em- )loyment opportunities for our citizens," he added. Gov. Kernor said the bill was jnacted by the legislature "substantially in the form in which it was presented by this administration. It was my belief in present ng this matching fund concept to he General Assembly not only hat the State government should ielp finance a tourism promotion irogram, but also that communi- ies and promotional groups hroughout the state should have he opportunity to promote their nvn attractions. All Have Chance "This program gives all the rom Iho tourist trade, hut for hn entire economy of Illinois. Too Aware. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ... All insurance Is NOT the same.

No Membership Fee JERRY LAMAR East Alton- Wood River fommunltios in Illinois n chance lo increase tourist promotion. I hope that a sirlr pffccl may be to encourage Inn improvement, and construction of tourist facilities in many communiiins in order lo attract morn visitors." A similar matching fund program adopted in Pennsylvania few years ago has proven suc- cessful, according to Ihn governor. He said that the Board of Economic Development will immedi aloly brgin to draw up rules and regulations under which grants will be made. As soon as pro- rodurrs are established, he said, applications will be made available by the board. The act provides that matching funds may be made available only for money allocated by communities or local promotion groups after the effectivr datp of the law. An advisory committee to be made up of four legislators and five public members appointed by the governor will assist Ihp Board of Economic Dovoloprnpnl in its tourism promotional activities. -. ;riTn;rWiiM|ll ANNOUNCEMENT Mather Pfeiffenberger Jr., M.D. IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE ASSOCIATION OF George L.
