Yemen Bound*, JereeyvlUe, John Alien Writer 'Cyclone in Calico' Was A Legend in Civil War By JOHN tv. Illlnoln Relnlively little has been written, however, about ihe women who followed in the wake of conflict to nurse and care for the sick and those wounded In battle. Perhaps Illinois, with its numerous surviving letters, diaries, journals and contemporary accounts set down by those directly concerned, has been as negligent as any other slate in this matter. It may be even more so since story has It that the last surviving Civil War nurse was living in White County within the memory of many. Also, because Illinois furnished one of the most capable nnd devoted members of the Corps of Union Nurses, Mary er Defense Rests In Clemency Hearing CHICAGO (AP) - The state's nswcrins arguments to H nine- lour assault on the murder con- .Mellon and death penally of Lloyd C. 'Miller, 37, of Canton, in the ape-slaying of an 8-year-old girl vcrc marshalled today for a ilemency hearing. The attack upon the one-time •al) driver's trial was made at an extraordinary hearing of the State 'arolc and Pardon Bourd by a iincl of lawyers seeking to avert he scheduled Aug. 23 execution if Miller for the murder of Janice May, a third grade pupil, in Cun- on Nov. 26, 1955. Miller wns not present. He Is in llatevillc Penitentiary. The clemency case was com- ileted at 8 p.m. Monday and the even - member board fixed 10 a.m., today for its resumption to iear rebuttal by the state pros- icutors, Roger W. Hayes of De<alb, special prosecutor in the Vliller trial and former McDon- >ugh County state's attorney; Slaine Ramsey, Fulton County tate's attorney at the time of the 956 trial; and Oi-val C. Cost, >resent Fulton County prosecutor. 11 Witnesses Miller's chief attorney, George . Leighton of Chicago, presented 11 witnesses before the seven? member board in an all-day hear- ng at which Chairman Charles F. -Qnney, presided. Leighton 1 s principal evidence, vhich sought to establish that Miller was not at the scene of the crime at tht supposed time that He May girl was raped and beaten to death, was given Monday >y four witnesses. One was Mrs. Alice Baxter, in vhose home Miller was a roonv er, who testified her grandchildren had seen him in his bed- •obm at 4 p.m. on the day of the slaying and that she had seen Vliller in her home at 4:30 p.m., vhen she asked him to get a pre scription filled, and,again after 5 vhen he returned with the prescription. The. grandchildren, Rebecca Walters, 16, and her brother, Adrian, 15; told of going upstairs p Miller's room that day about I p.m., to awaken him and of see- ng him seated on a couch in the •oom. The girl was 8 and the boy at that lime. New Evidence The youngsters arc step-children of David Walters of Manito, brmer cily editor of the Canton Daily Ledger, who also testified .hat be helped bring the new evidence to light after Chicago radio announcer Richard APP'egate of station-WAIT had telephoned him and reported discussing the mater-with Mrs. Baxter. Leighton also called Hayes, the special prosecutor of Miller, as a witness and asked,him about ef- !orls of the defense JU> secure an agreemenl of the prosecution to accept a plea of guilty from Miller in .exchange for recommending penalty of 60 years imprisonment. Hayes said the defense proposal was relayed to him by Ramsey. District 13 Okays Plans for School "I told Ramsey the decision was his," Hayes said. "I had made similar decisions in other cases, bul the principle responsibility was his. I told him it was my opinion that he> should not talk plea at all." Ramsey told the board he advised Miller's Rt'lorneys', "I would accept a plea,-but I would recommend 99 years, because Miller was 29, and .would then be around 60 before he' could be eligible for parole." . Innocent William H. Mnlmgren, the, attorney who defended Miller in the murder trial and carried his case to the U.S. Supreme Court, testified that Miller rejected any proposal for a guilty plea flatly and emphatically, saying, "I did not do this thing. I am innocent." Malmgren, speaking quietly in a studied wanner, made one of jhe argument* wbjch,, apparently iaught greateBttn^rest Jp Monday's wfrijMiV 'He testified that the. filler case was M» first crim- >,nftl trial! M It, was ftjr Ml» associate, George Meuth, and that in It he '• "walked alone" ;tn an •irouscd community where other lawyers had turned Miller's case down. He told of seeking cooperation from Mrs. Baxter and finding her "hostile and emotional." He also said that a contempt citation againsl him by the court during the trial "was delelerious lo Ihe defense." The contempt cltalion was based, he said, on a charge of "molesting state's wl.ine.sses" alter Betty Baldwin, Miller's girl friend, had phoned him and asked lim to drive her away from Canton while alone—the only condition under which she would tell him "her story." The citalior came after he drove her some 50 miles in .his car while she talked to him, saying, "they" were after her. After Her She did not say who "they" were, he said. Malmgren observed: "The people in Canton—I think they were having an emotional binge. And I think this was a part of it (the defense difficulty)." Another wilnesses, laxi operator Lawrence Johns who was Miller's employer, testified that he had telephoned Miller at 2:45 p.m. the day of the slaying to wake him up, and found him already awake. Meuth testified of difficulties encountered in representing Miller. Miller's mother, Jewel; his sister, Mrs. Esther Margaret Isaacs of Chicago, and Mrs. Isaacs' husband, Donald, also testified as to Miller's character. All said Miller was polite, thoughtful of other people, had never shown any unnatural sex interests, and was always good to them.

Ann Bickcrdyke, known for a hundred years as "Mother Blck- erdyke," a legendary figure. lief Cnrcct Benin* The army career of this woman, born in Knox County, Ohio, n 3817, strangely had its begin nings in Knox County, Illinois in .he summer of 1861. A powerful army for ihe invasion of the South wns being gathered hastily at Cairo. These men were housed, Ill-fed and scan- .ily equipped. Sanitary arrangements and medical care were crude. Typhoid, dysentery, pneumonia, measles, and malaria were rife. Hundreds of these troops were dying without ever having known bailie. Tliis wns the situation when Pastor Edward Beecher, brother of Henry Ware Beecher and of Uurriel Beecher Stowe, came lo Ihe pulpll of his Congregational Church al Gnlnsburg on a summer day in 1861 to conduct the regular Sunday services. After the opening hymn, the Reverend Beecher slated thai instead of the usual passage of Scripture he would read a lelter written by a Galesburg man. The letter, graphically and forcefully told of the fearful situation in the army camp at Cairo, where 500 Galesburg men had been sent Some already had died and their bodies had been returned to Galesburg for burial. Instead of the usual Sabbath Day sermon, the services quickly became a business session oi the church. All bemoaned the conditions existing in the camp and agreed that they should do whatever they could to remedy them. They accordingly decided to send supplies for the Galesburg men at Cairo. They also would send someone to see that the supplies were properly dis- .ri billed and used. Only One Suggested The first and only name suggested was that of Mary Ann Bickerdyke, nee Mary Ann Ball, a 44-year-old widow with two young sons. After being chosen, VTrs. Bickerdyke was called upon or a statement. Declaring herself no speech maker, she brief- y stated, "It will be a hard job. . All right. I'm used to hard jobs. All I ask is that you look after my boys. This is the Lord's work you're asking me to do and I'll do it." Moreover, she did. It is difficult to conceive that a better choice could have been made. Not much is known about Mary Ann Ball's girlhood beyond the fact that she grew up in a community adjoining that in which William T. Sherman lived his joyliood. Mary Ann grew to be a strong, husky, plain-spoken, kindly woman, one endowed with dar- ng, sound judgment and boundless energy. At thirty years of age she married Robert Bickerdyke, an accomplished musician and artist, and moved with him ;o Galesburg, Illinois, where he died. Evidence of formal education is lacking. Apparently she did inve some training as a nurse and was acquainted with the practices of the "Botanic Physician." Whatever her Iraining, she a firm believer in proper diet, cleanliness, and fresh air. Went to Cairo Shortly after her selection by the people of Galesburg, Mrs. Bickerdyke went to Cairo and to four years of ceaseless conflict with antiquated army regulations, with jealous and too often incompetent .medical help and sometimes with those plainly vindictive. Through it all she drove her relentless way, always a devoted EAST ALTON - Plans for the proposed new Washington School were approved Monday night by the Board of Education of District 13.

Southwestern District Opens Schools Aug. 28 PIASA — First day of school in Southwestern School District will be Aug. 28, Superintendent Troy L. Meyer has announced. Southwestern District operates Southwestern Senior-Junior High School at Piasa and elementary attendance centers at Medora, Shipman and Brighton. Construction projects at all schools in the district are not expected to be completed in time for the scheduled opening, Meyer said, but they will be occupied immediately upon completion, possibly a month after toe opening. The largest project is at Brighton West Elementary School, where 12 classrooms are being added and a kitchen is being erected adjacent to the gymnasium, which will serve as a lunchroom. While the 12 rooms will not be completed, Meyer said, none of the projected school program will suffer because the district will fall back on East Elementary Building, which was scheduled to >e held in reserve anyway. It is x>ssible that the scheduled kindergarten classes will be held in space rented from a Brighton church until the classrooms under construction are completed, Mayer said. Construction work at Medora and Shipman attendance centers consists of new kitchens and makeshift kitchens can be used until they are completed, Meyer said. The new industrial arts shop under construction at Southwestern High will be put into use upon completion and, in the meantime, space in the agriculture department will be used, Meyer said. There will be no school on Monday, Sept. 2, Labor Day.
