THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 12,1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THREE But 'Not With a Dead Horse' Sees Chambers of Commerce Merging C. W. Jabusch, president of the Wood River Chamber of Commerce, said Wednesday that eventually all area chambers would probably merge but "we are not going to merge at present with a dead horse." Jabusch didn't refer to any particular dead horse, but the board of directors' at a meeting which followed the president's remark, discussed financial problems of the Greater Alton Asso. of Commerce. The directors approved a motion to assist GAAC in every way, except financially. Directors generally agreed that all chambers in the area should cooperate, but their comments indicated that the township chamber's merging with other chambers in the area was not likely in the immediate future. Jabusch reported on the discussion of area chambers on Sept. 5 on a proposal for organizing an industrial development committee to encourage the expansion of industries already in the county. The meeting was held in the Wood River Township chamber office. He described the atmosphere of the meeting as about "50-50" in pros and cons. However, Jabusch, said the meeting stimulated interest. Dr. Edgar Davison, DDS, reported on a proposed chamber- sponsored dental clinic to render basic dental needs to indigent children in the township in the age range of 5 to 18, through combined effort's of local service clubs, industry and local dentists. Davison said that, according to the number of dentists and others who have volunteered to participate in the project, 10 'children could be treated a week, or 360 children during the school year. The proposed clinic would only operate during the school year. Davison suggested that the clinic be mobile and visit schools on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday, the days local dentists are free to participate in the program. Martin Langehatig, administrator of the Wood River Township Hospital, said that registration for the chamber's political action course would be held Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. in the East Alton- Wood River High School. A list of local organizations is being prepared to obtain their cooperative effort with the chamber's "Christmas coordinating committee" in the distribution of food to needy families in the area. Bob Ryffel, committee chairman', reported. PHONETBOOK SETT AFIRE Alton firemen Wednesday quelled a flaming telephone book in a phone booth at 2516 College Ave. It was presumed some vandal ignited the book. Forestry Boys Clear Brush At Alton State Eight boys from the Illinois Youth Forestry Camp near Pere Marquette Park, Grafton, have undertaken a special brush-clear- project at Alton State Hospital. The youths, ranging in age from 15 to 18, have been on the assignment since Aug. 26. Under the supervision of Hubert F. Bates, cottage parent, they are removing underbrush from a wedge-shaped tract of land which lies between Highway 140 and Fosterburg Road. Bates, a resident of Grafton and justice of the peace, there, also drives the bus that transports the boys to the hospital each day about 9 a.m. He believes the job will last another couple weeks. The young workers put in about six hours of work, using sickles, axes, saws, rakes, machetes and other utensils. In return for their services, the institution provides Injured Tot Still Listed As 'Critical* Little Billy Craigmiles of Bethalto remained in critical condition today at St. Louis Children's Hospital following an accident Tuesday when he was struck by an auto while crossing the street to catch a school bus. Billy, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Craigmiles of Prairie street, underwent surgery for brain injury within two hours after entering the hospital. He was struck on the Bethalto-Moro Road. The family this morning told the Telegraph Billy doesn't have any broken bones. He is being kept in a refrigerated bed to keep his temperature low. them a noon meal and washes their laundry. Bates said this work program is one of many sponsored by the Illinois Youth Commission to aid in rehabilitating young offenders.

Council Lays Over 4th-Ridge Parking Lot Proposed Sale The Alton city council Wednesday night following considerable discussion on disposition of the E. 4th and Ridge .Streets parking lot laid the matter over to another council meeting. Principal spokesmen against sale of the lot were Dean Jacoby, chairman of GAAC's Business Area Modernization Committee and Charley Buck of Bucks Paint & Floor Covering Store, located near the lot. The East End Improvement Association was also on record as opposing sale of the lot. Jacoby in listing several reasons why GAAC thinks the lot shouldn't be sold said, "timing of the proposed sale does not seem good considering redevelopment currently in progress around the lot. "This, we believe, would not have been started if the lot were not there," he stated on behalf of GAAC. He cited a picture in the Telegraph showing one car on the lot and said this was not a true example of parking that occurs there. "Many times you can count over 20 cars in the lot and with the improvements going on this will probably increase. Charles Buck Speaks Charles Buck of Buck's Paint Store, 36 E. Broadway, which has recently relocated across Broadway to be closer to the lot was given the floor through a sus- this. Buck continued, "I don't know much about your city operation but I just imagine that there might be some other city operated things that don't pay their way either so why pick on one little parking lot. Timmermiere had reported that $3,000 was spent on the lot in 1960 to renovate it with another $100 spent on maintenance in 1962. He also indicated that current repairs needed on the lot would cost an estimated $300 and that they would only be temporary. He said that approximately $350 r as collected from meters on the ot during each of the three years rom 1960 through 1962 and $252 from the leasing of parking lot tails. Cites Annual Cost He said it annually cost $440 or the meter collection and main- enance showing that $162 per ear is made by the city on that base. However, he indicated, that cost o the city is exceeding income pension of rules and gave his reasons for supporting retention of the lot. "We have installed a customer entrance at the rear of our new store in addition to a ramp to better serve customers," he added. "My store was located at its previous location for 32 years and I bought the site for my new store on the assumption the lot would be there." Commenting on a revenue report of the lot given by Councilman Maitland Timmermiere Buck said," why I have leased three parking stalls in there that I presume have not yet been listed on his report. Timmermiere concurred with WASHINGTON (Special) — Congressman Mel Price has ieen appointed to the new louse Committe which will in- estigate expenditures for r£- earch programs conducted by gencies of the Federal government, it was announced Wed- esday.

Timmermiere later told the Telegraph that he does no favor sale of the lot at this time Jacoby said he didn't fee the figures gave a complete pic ture because there were a num her of years since creation of the lot in 1953 that no repair swere made. "By 1960 the lot was virtually unusable and extensive re pairs had to be made at t h a time."
