The budget is $118,Parole Board Plans Talk With Miller CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois Parole and Pardon Board will meet face-to-face with Lloyd E. Miller Jr.-before recommending whether he should die in the electric chair next week. Miller is scheduled to die in nine days for the 1955 rape-slaying of Janice May, 8, in Canton. Tuesday, lawyers for Miller and the state fought a wordy, daylong battle before the parole board over whether Miller, 37, shall keep his Aug. 23 date with the electric chair in Joliet's State- ville Penitentiary. After the heated meeting — the second nine-hour session in a row —the seven board members announced they would Interview Miller in Stateville before presenting their recommendations to Gov. Otto Kerner. They set no date for Ihe interview. George N. Leighton, attorney for the condemned man, told the board Miller is innocent. Representatives of the state argued that nothing has been learned since Miller's 1956 trial to cast any doubt on the verdict of guilty. Leighton based his plea for Miller on what he said was evidence that Miller was in his room 2 minutes before police reported the girl was found dying, and therefore could not have slain Janice May. The attorney said Mrs. Alice Baxter, Miller's landlady in Canton, had testified she saw Miller in her house at 4 p.m. "This man," Leighton said, "couldn't possibly have committed this crime, which occurred after 4 o'clock." Roger W. Hayes, special prosecutor at Miller's trial in 1956. told the board the clemency bid was a "big publicity campaign" and that the "chief purpose is to further abolition of capital pun- :shment." Furthermore, he saidi "Mrs. Baxter never saw Miller at 4 o'clock." James Christensen, superintendent of the Illinois Bureau of Criminal Investigation at the time, testified that Miller admitted the killing to him three days after the girl's death. Leighton's heated questioning of Christensen ended in a three- cornered shouting match with counsel for the state objecting that Leighton was "badgering a fine, upstanding law enforcement officer." Oral C. Kost, state's attorney of Fulton County, told the board he was sure they would not accept Mrs. Baxter's alibi for Miller. He said nothing of substance had appeared in the two-day board hearing which had not appeared in the 1956 trial.

The Southern Illinois College property reverted to the city of Carbondale and became the Lincoln elementary and junior high school. 756 higher than last year.
