City Has Curfew Already Alton• will have no remodeling to do to bring its 9 - year - old curfew ordinance into conformity with the newly - enacted Illinois curfew law. Police Chief John M. Heafner said that the Alton ordinance coincides in all major provisions with the state measure signed into effect by Gov. Otto Kerner a few days ago. . The state law will apply in unincorporated areas and others not previously having had curfew regulations. By the city enactment, persons under 18 are banned from loitering on streets and public places after 11 p.m. except on Fridays and Saturdays when deadline hour is midnight. The provision applies unless the juveniles are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The Alton ordinance was enacted as of Oct. 15, 1954, displacing an earlier curfew measure. Originally the age limit was set at 17, but in 1958 was raised to 18. Alton was a pioneer in enacting ordinances to ban use df dangerous fireworks and to require immunization, of dogs to rabies, and was years .ahead of the state in such matters. , ', -~t -. : < • UN's Yemen Leader Resigns Command UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.
