SATUHDAY, AUGUST 17, 1903 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Greenfield Bond Vote Up Again Election Set for Saturday fty GEORGE LElGflTV Telegraph Staff Writer GREENFIELD - Old King Alfred's spider, hanging by a thread and trying again and again to make the adjacent wall, didn't have a thing on Greenfield Community School District No. 10. Next Saturday, for the sixth time, residents of the far-flung district which takes In parts of Greene, Macoupln and Morgan counties and Includes Greenfield, Rockbridge, Wrights and Athensville, will go to the polls for another crack at a proposed $398,000 building bond' issue and a proposed boost in the educational tax rate. This time, however, supporters of the proposed Improvements and expansion, both in the academic sphere and in physical plant, have no intentions of being left at the post if they can help it. They are seeking to make the issues turn on a quite different axle than the one on which they unwound and frayed off into nothingness on five prior occasions. Citizen's Gomnilltco For example, a citizen's committee, approximately 100 strong, headed by George Enlrekin and Mrs. Richard Cole, both of Greenfield, propose to.carry the ball in the traditional election-duy style —by hauling in the vole. Mrs. Cole will be in charge of the election-day transportation of voters and says she and oilier members of the committee hope to win by getting the "yes vote" to the polls. She says the "no vote" always turned out in force In past elections, while the "yes vote" stayed home. In addition, on this occasion, school personnel, except as private citizens, are staying out of the proceedings. John Burch, superintendent of schools, said the professional school people, while strongly favoring the building program and educational tax increase, feel that the issue is strictly up to the people and, if the people want adequate schools, they will have to provide them. In past elections, Burch said, voters seemed to think the issue was one of the schools versus the residents of the district. "After all, the schools belong to the people, it's their district," Burch said. They Dropped It In keeping with the hands off policy adopted by the schools, as such, the board of education dropped the whole thing after the last try—even though the bond proposal lost by only eight votes. The board of education, Entrekin says, intended to let the proposals dangle, but, at the request of the citizen's committee, called the Aug. 24 vote. The scant margin by which the bond proposal lost in the last try on June 22 formed the basis of the determination for another try, Entrekin said. "We are an ever growing group of school patrons and taxpayers who are fully aware of our pressing educational needs and of the importance of making certain Greenfield schools continue to meet the demands of a fully accredited educational program," Entrekin said. He said the group backing the proposed school expansion and educational tax rate boost has been growing through a door-to-door campaign being waged by his committee. Entrekin suggests that some residents have not been able to honestly support the proposals in the Greenfield district because they have in the backs of their minds possible merger .or consolidation with other nearby school districts. • District Is Adequate These, Entrekin says, fail to take into account that the Greenfield district, is in a position to adequately supply Us own educational needs, whereas some parts of "a recently-merged district, including.White Hall, Roodhouse, Patterson and Hillview were not. The merger of the schoo districts to the north brought about a community district whereas Greenfield district already is a community district, Entrekin said, Assessed valuation of Greenfield district is $14,980,990. It has adequate bonding power to sup ply its own needs, Entrekin says The district's present bonded debt is $204,000 and the reserve bonding power is $546,000-far more than Is needed for the propsed improvements, Entrekin says Supporters of the proposed construction say that the property tax Increase,' if the Issues carry would work out like this; presen $100 tax bills would be $106.30, present $500 tax bills would be $531.50; present 8,000 tax bills would be $1,063 Construction The proposed construction Is broken down into the following: two self-contained classrooms a Greenfield Elementary School $24,000; building adjacent to the present high school which would Include Industrial arts and agrl culture departments, instrumenta music facilities and physical cation department and S3HQQQ; additional shop wui clap room equipment, $8,000; cost ol *, mow. There will be „ , IVO*I* J" PROPOSED GREENFIELD CONSTRUCTION Architect's drawing of a proposed building to be Saturday. It will be the sixth time the voters have erected adjacent to the present Greenfield High School passed on the proposal, if a bond issue of $898,000 is approved by voters next Weekly Book Review From City Library By DAVID KARL HOLT Librarian "The Great Time Killer" by •larold Mehllng — "We have been •obbed — deliberately, there is 10 doubt of that — by the tele- ison networks, by sponsors and heir Madison Avenue agencies, jnd by the hired hands in the lollywood laugh-laugh' mills. Together, and profitably, they have ransformed television into a peddler, a genial good-time Charlie vith holes in his head." This latement is one of many found n a new book about the "vast wasteland" of television of the 9(iO's. The author, a past master if acid rhetoric, casts a searing eye at the "garbage" to which iewers are exposed by virtue of 'profit-making programming." The book inspects a remarka- )lc phenomenon — the spectacle if televison having gone senile in ts adolescence. And it pulls no undies. You will not find here he sweetly reasonable approach o the national television scanlal: the author names the spoil- irs and reveals the tremendous takes that cause the spoiling. The book is addressed to those >f us who are dissatisfied with elevision but are not sure why, ind to those of us who would be dissatisfied, or perhaps outraged, f we understood how, to what extent, and with what deliberate :ynicism we are being victimized! Do mass appeal shows really mve to be stupid? The author establishes why the blood-and-vio- ence products of Hollywood's 'sausage factories" rule the airwaves, and fear rules the hearts of network executives. He' tells >vhat the men who run television are like, how behind-the-barn sex s used to bolster ratings, how he FCC has neglected a public rust, and why the advertising agencies now determine, almost vithout exception, what we see and hear. The author, before writing this wok, spent approximately one 'ear in active research, made easier by his having written a number of television shows. He :ells the story of television's degeneration in the hope that the medium can be rescued. He of- !ers several practical ideas for vhal you, the interested viewer, can do to help restore the promise of magic thai dislinguished the )irth of the century's most important communications medium The book closes with highlights from the Newton Minnow "Vast Wasteland" speech of May 9, 1961 Here is one: "You ... see a procession of game shows, violence, audience participation shows, formula comedies aboul totally unbelievable families, blood and thunder, mayhem, violence, sadism, murder, western badmen, western good men, private eyes, gangsters, more violence and cartoons. And, endlessly commercials — many screaming cajollng.and offending. And mos' of all, boredom. True, you will see a few things you will enjoy But they will be very, very few And if you think I exaggerate, try it. . . . " No thanks, Newton. I think stick with reading, Fire Damages Bar At Liquor Store Alton Fire Department was called to Sam's Liquor Store G38 E, Broadway, at 1:45 a.m today to extinguish a fire at the bar.

Moscow Jews Seek Ground For Cemetery MOSCOW (AP)-The half mil- ion Orthodox Jews of Moscow are waiting for an answer from Presi- lent Leonid Brezhnev to their appeal for the right to have sacred ;round in which to bury their dead. Their 40-year-old Jewish cemetery is filled, spokesmen say, and Soviet officials have refused to grant any more land for a new one although they opened a new city cemetery across the road. Appeals to the Moscow City Council and to the Ministry of Religious Culls for space for consecrated ground — apart from atheists and gentiles — were rejected, informants suld. Rabbi Yehuda Lieb L e v I n o Moscow's chief rabbi, said only that Jewish dead are being burlec but he could not say the burials are in accord with Jewish religious law. WASHINGTON (AP) - Impact of a sharp reduction in local airline subsidy, involving some Illinois cities, will vary greatly from one company to another, the Civil Aeronautics Board says. Because of the variation, the CAB planning office said Friday it has not calculated amounts foi individual companies involved, if the reduction proposed Thursday goes into effect. . Over-all, the board has proposed to cut subsidy payments by about one-third over a five-year period. The current rate of about $84 million annually would drop in five years to about $56 million. The board plans to withhold subsidy initially for any more than seven daily round trips between two consecutive cities. Iradually this would be tightened o four daily round trips. Included in markets identified by the CAB as having local serv- ce airlines providing more than seven daily round trips were St. -^mis-Springfield, eight each, and Chicago-Milwaukee, 10 each. While the CAB had no detailed estimates of the subsidy reduc- ions under the proposed pro;ram, estimates of payments to Ozark Airlines, serving several II- inois cities, for the fiscal year nded June 30, were $4,562,000. Estimated payments to the hree helicopter airlines in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles vould drop from ?5 million to ?3 million. Kennedy at Hyannis Port For Weekend By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL Associated Press Staff Writer HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP)— ^resident Kennedy is spending his seventh consecutive weekend with ris family at their seaside re- reat on Cape Cod. He flew up 'rom Washington late Friday, Mrs. Kennedy is convalescing at heir gray-shingle residence from the caesarean, premature birth 10 days ago of a son who lived less ban two days. Although the First Lady has an extended record of difficult births n her 10 years of marriage, she still wants to have another baby, Reports came out of nearby Otis Air Force Base, where Mrs. Kennedy spent a week in n mili- .ary hospital, that she told staff nembers that she had received wonderful treatment and wanted to return next year to have another baby there. While the First Lady's doctor has described her recovery as satisfactory, the President is flying back and forth from the capital to be with her and their children, Caroline, 5'/j, and John Jr., VA. He had left here only Thursday morning and was back in 32 hours. Kennedy plans to return to Washington M o n d a y morning, Quincy Mayor Wes Olson, steering committee chairman, was au- jthorized to call a meeting of about. 300 persons from interested counties to receive the report. The Stale Highway Division and the Federal Bureau of Roads must decide, after feasibility Is determined, whether the benefit from such a route would exceed that to be had from other roads in the state with similar costs. A consulting firm then would be assigned to recommend a route. Decatur spokesmen at the meeting, E. M. Chastain and Roy Chapman, said there is an interest in their city in obtaining a Decatur link with interstate routes at Springfield or Champaign-Urbana. Robert A. Fay of Jacksonville said traffic between Springfield and Jacksonville is clogged and that many Jacksonville area residents would like to see a four- lane route between the cities on existing routes 36-54 as well as on the proposed expressway. William H. Klingner of Quincy said persons interested in the proposed route should resolve their differences about location and concentrate on obtaining Missouri's agreement to link up with the proposed route at the Mississippi River. Tornado, Hail Hit Wisconsin By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS Rain, hail and winds of tornadic velocity belted the nation's midsection Saturday as a week of unseasonably coolness came to an end. A storm described by witnesses as a tornado zipped through a south central Wisconsin camping resort late Friday night, injuring at least 13 persons, killing several cattle and toppling a score of house trailers and cottages. Officials in Columbia County said the 30-minute storm struck while some 300 campers were bedding down for the night at Crystal Lake near Madison. A storm centered in northern lower Michigan combined with a cold front to cause the tornadic winds, weather bureau officials said. Other portions of the Midwest received rainfall, but the flanking sectors of the country enjoyed a dry, sunny day. One inch of hail covered the ground in Lake Geneva, Wis. Rainfall was heaviest in the upper Great Lakes region. Madison, Wis., reported 1.25 inches in a six-hour period. Elsewhere, the southwestern states reported insignificant rainfall. Temperatures in the 40s and 50s prevailed in the New England, Upper Mississippi Valley and West Coast regions. The 60s were common over the Ohio Valley and northern plains and elsewhere the . 70s and 80s made for a balmy day. British Election Unlikely This Year .By THE ASSOCIATED TREKS LONDON (AP)— British political commentators and newspap- ' ers generally agreed today that the slim political victory in the special election for John Pro- fumo's old parliamentary seat at Stratford-oii-Avon almost certainly rules out a national election this fall. The life of the present parHa- ment expires in October IflGI. But Prime Minister Harold Macmlllan may call a national election any times ho pleases before then.
