Illinois Municipal League has been set for Oct. 19-22 at Springfield, and City Clerk Paul Price Friday received a formal notice of the meeting to be referred to the city council. The communication from the league headquarters urges that as many Alton city officials as possible attend the sessions, and suggests that early reservations for rooms for the convention period is advisable.

To Talk About Meters Future of parking meters in Alton is slated for renewed discussion when the city council's finance committee holds its regu- jlar meeting tonight. At its meeting two weeks ago the committee laid over a resolution by Mayor P. W. Day proposing that a plan he worked out to replace about 900 out - worn meters by acquisition of new ones. Except for routine auditing of city bills, this same resolution is the only item on the agenda for next Monday's committee session. Meantime, the city council at its last meeting adopted a resolution to sell the little used E. 4th Street city parking lot, near Ridge, and, with the proceeds, set up a fund to retire the last $30,000 off - street parking bonds ailing due next April 1. Such a itep was seen as a prerequisite o any radical changes being made in the present parking me- er system. Ordinance Prepared An ordinance has been prepared for submission to the Council next Wednesday to authorize sale the East End lot. The ordinance would be necessary to implement the sale as proposed by he aldermanic resolution. Also headed for next week's council session is a written pro- est by East End Improvement Association to the sale and elimination of the E. 4th metered lot. In urging retention of the 4th street lot, and opposing its sale, Sast End Improvement Associa- ion also has recommended re- ention and improvement of the meter system. "The membership," says a communication to the council by W. E. Huff, president, "recommends the 4th Street lot be retained, and that' parking meters hroughout the city be kept and used in parking control instead of revenue producers, and that a jrogram of meter maintenance and repair be undertaken with vigor." 'New Vitality' The letter also suggests that elimination of the 4th street lot will add to a future parking problem in the East End "because this section of the Broadway shopping area is showing new vitality and growth, and all off- street parking areas there will be extremely valuable in the future." Mayor Day Friday was engaged in further study of the park- Cuts Hrmd His wrench slipped and Peter Hackenthal, 35, 239 Alben St., cut his hand Sunday afternoon on a freshly - sharpened blade of a power mower.
