Driver Exams Show Upturn In 2 Months Juno and July hrtVc been record- breaking months this year for driver license examinations given to applicants In a one-month period, Secretary of State Charles F. Cnrpentier announced today. An inspector at the driver license Inspection station at 199 E. Acton, Wood River, said "We've been busier than ever in the months of June and July." However, no statistics were available to show (he number of persons examined locally, he said. Applicants examined in the stale for July totaled 93,708. In June, 85,767 examinations were given. The previous high was In June, I960, when 75,344 applicants were examined. Children born in the years Immediately following World War II are becoming eligible Tor driver licenses, and tills contributes to the new surge of applicants, the inspection bureau said. "Out-of-slate residents coming to this area are applying for licenses in large numbers, also," he added. Many transferred here by industry apply for licenses at Wood River. In one instance when a department store was established here, about 20 people new to the area applied for licenses, lie said. Other factors contributing to the increase are: increased enrollment in high school driver education programs and the licenses of a large percentage of drivers over 70 years of age expire this year. In many cases the expanded workload has caused occasional overcrowding of driver license examining stations. Many applicants have had to wait to take the road test after completing the written test on traffic laws and the vision examination, Secretary Carpentier said. 3 P/l/\ O • Hi ,500 beout Execs Of U.S. Will Convene, Including Area Men Over 3,500 professional leaders of the Boy Scouts of America will gather at the University of Illinois for their 12lh National Training Conference, Thursday through Sept. 4.

Illinois Air Pollution Setup Does Not Clash With Study Underway An Illinois air pollution control board rrrnntly created by the General Assembly will not conflict with a cooperative study of air pollution in the Alton -St. Louis area, it was explained by an Illinois Public Health Department official today. Robert R. French, an air pollution engineer with Ihe department, snid tho stale pollution control board was set up to handle air pollution problems throughout the stale. It will be an independent agency and will act within the boundaries of II- Inois, he said, bill will nol interfere with local pollulion control "... where it is effective." The 9-momber board, is yet to be appointed by Kernel 1 , French said. Members will include an en- ginpor& city official, a doctor, and abor and management represent atives. French said he does nol know if the board would participate officially in the cooperative air pol- lulion study in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Representatives of the Illinois Department ol Public Health are currently participating in HIP area study. The board might want to lenc its official support to the two- year study later, he said, to adc its contribulion.

Direct Distance Dialing is the modern tele- phone service that enables you to dial station- to-station Long Distance calls from your own phone to more than 80 million phones across the United States and Canada. It's easy and quick. Your new directory — due early next month — will give complete information on how to make a DDD call. Also on September 8, the telephone area code for these four cities will change to 618. The new numbering system is just a change from letters and figures to all figures. The nation's expanding need for new phone services—such as Direct Distance Dialing—calls for lots of new tele- phone prefixes (your prefix is the first three digits of your telephone number), Only the new, seven-figure system provides enough prefixes to best serve everyone. Remember, on September 8, all Alton, Wood River, Bethalto and Brighton customers will have the seven-figure numbers. NOTE THESE SEPT. 8 CHANGES • The ^remaining letters in telephone number prefixes will be changed to numerals in the lame openings of the dial: Alton—HO to 46 Wood River—CL to 25 Brighton—FR to 37 • Bethalto will have all new numbers. Bethalto customers will no longer have to dial "2" to reach Alton and Wood River. They'll just dial the seven figures of the number. • Some numbers in Alton and Wood River will change completely. • Check your new directory—beginning Sept. 8.
