This compares with the more than 2,000 handed him by the General Assembly at the time of the legislative adjournment.

(Special) —' The Illinois State Republican Central •Committee is gelling an increasing number of requests from its' county chairmen all over Ihe state, for information about the law concerning the election of presidential nominating convention delegates. Their interest in this phase of the law has posed an interesting point for speculation by many Republicans associated with various candidates who are seeking a GOP nomination for state office next year; That speculation revolves about these questions: 1. Is there a more organized drive in behalf of one presidential hopeful than many of the prospective state candidates realize? Organized Drive? 2. Is there some organized drive to keep the Illinois delegation to the 1964 convention from being committed,to any one candidate? 3. Is a sjrpng competition do veloplng'ariiong two qr more presl dentiai candidates wh,|ch accounts for more and morej^'pal Interes in the election of delegates Republicans associated with an noticed candidates are doing mos of the speculating here.

This speculation by various Re- 3 Area Junior Achievers Attend National Meet Dead trees and worn-out park- ng meters are to dominate discussions at the Alton city council's finance committee meeting next Monday night. Before the committee will be a request of the Park Commission : or an additional $5,000 for con- inuing its program of removal dead trees from the city streets and also a resolution of Mayor P. W. Day calling for plans to replace wornout parking meters. Out of Funds The interlocking park and recreation boards have run out of funds for the street-tree program, and removal of more dead trees is at a standstill for the of the year unless some means is found to supply it with additional money. a recent communication to the council, the board's acting director said it has already expended this year $4,000 to remove dead trees, and with the remaining $1,000 of its street-tree most of them elms, and also 11 stumps of dead trees. SUNDRY SPECIALS appropriation has planted 160 new trees. "We are getting a back-log of New for Old Mayor Day's resolution on parking meters proposes that a plan be worked out to acquire new meters to replace those whose mechanical condition, because of age, has detei'iorated to a point where maintenance is costly. Since submitting his resolution to the council, Day has estimated that about 900 out of the city's total of 1,232 should be replaced, and has revealed that new meters might be had on a time payment plan. He also proposes to suggest to the finance committee that al meters in the Market Street lot be converted from 2 to 10-hour operation and that a free trial operation of new meters, offered the city, be accepted for the Market. Street location. He has been told that new meters might increase the city's revenue from meter collections by 15 per cent. ntod use of pesticides on stale roperty, state - controlled prop- Hy, or by slate agencies. It picked up support after Rails- ack explained the intent of the egislation. By Ihe end of the scs- ion, there were 35 other legisla- ors' names on the bill, from both inrties. Mtmy Favor It In committee hearings, in both ouses, Railsback's bill attracted many witnesses, most of whorr ostified in favor of it. Most of the nitial support came from his ome county where conservation- 7iinded groups have long oppos d indiscriminate use of posti- ^ides. The governor, in his message, aid Ihe state would eventually Urn to the federal government vhieh has already started n stu- ly of pesticides, Ihoir use and of fed. When I ha I study is completed, ho said, he will encourage egislation which will be coordl- laled with that federal effort. Another veto, that of the bills which would have raised staring salaries of downstale firemen and policemen, aroused what is probably the greatest reaction he las yet to receive on any veto. Spokesmen for firemen and po- liccmcns organizations in Springfield at first couldn't believe the governor hud vetoed — for the second time in two legislative sessions — their pay raise bill. Then, there was an angry reaction, not loo public, but angry neverlheless. More comment from them, they indicated, will be made in the not - too - distant future. And they left no doubt as to its tone. Study Death Penalty Although the governor did approve a bill to create a State Employment Commission, he also vetoed numerous other bills, each of which would have established a commission. Among the latter was a commission which would have studied capital punishment and then reported its findings to the legislature in 1965. Another veto — that ol the bill which would have placed a maximum property tax ceiling on Chicago of $1.16 for each $100 valua- ion — will probably be brought up again and again in the upcom- ng gubernatorial campaign.
