PAGE TWELVE ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1963 $1.5 Million Of Funds Returned CHICAGO (Sppfi;il> — Thrrr hns boon n relurn of inoro th;ui $1.5 million in unspoilt funds to tho sfnfc treasury for flir lasl lii onnium, Secretary of Stair Qiarli's F. Carpentier said Wednesday night. In addition. Carprnlior said in a talk hoforo thr Illinois Pharmaceutical Travelers Assn, now duties and c-ontiiniod Rtwvth of old duties during thr present Won nitim arc expected to increase his office's costs by annul $500.000 for the period, hut the budget for this biennium is less than $13,000 above the previous budget. "In both cases — the saving of 51.5 million las; biennium and our determination to absorb an anticipated $500,000 increase in costs tliis biennium without a comparable budget increase — the results reflect a continuous, close scrutiny of our office's operation for opportunities to reduce costs," Carpen tier said. Duties of the Secretary of State's office have grown tremendously during the last 10 years. Carpentier told the group. He pointed out that licenses must now be issued for a million more motor vehicles each year than in 1953, that there are a million more licensed drivers in Illinois, that his office is now responsible for keeping records on every driver convicted on a traffic law violation, a record management program has been developed and administered, an effective truck license reciprocity program has been enforced and regulation of the sale of securities has been tightened. "Many of these new and expanded duties produce no revenue, but nevertheless, revenue collected by the Secretary of State's office has almost doubled in the last 10 years," Secretary Carpentier said. Girls See DraftChange As Promising OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)—"It's the best thing that's happened since dowries," gasped a 24-year- old bachelor girl. Other single girls here kept pretty calm, but all were more talkative than usual after President Kennedy signed' an executive order saying that if a fellow gets married, he won't get drafted. ; Kennedy's order provides that married men will be inducted only after all bachelors from 19 to 25 have entered the service. Military authorities say that means husbands won't be drafted in the fore seeable future. One career girl was nearly speechless when she got the news "Oh, it's wonderful," blurted 23 year-old Helen Ford. "Maybe someone. . .oh, I love it." But another bachelor girl sit ting nearby wasn't impressed "Why, it's just the thing the draf dodgers are looking for," sh said. To which Helen replied, "Oh, I do hope so." As she sizes up the situation, "There are so many single men running around just doing nothing. This way, I hope they'll be drawn into something more responsible." "It'll settle 'em down," Helen said. "A lot of them are too carefree for their age bracket." Things weren't that rosy on all fronts. Bachelor Phil Morris found the policy change "awful" and added: "It's discrimination." Most single girls agreed that the Kennedy order was laudable, but at least one pointed out that there are still a few problems to be solved. "They still haven't fixed the ratio of single men to single women," she reminded. Rosewood PTA to Seek Traffic Light ROSEWOOD HEIGHTS — Promoting the installation of a traffic light at the intersection o f Rosodale Avenue and Airline drive, was adopted as the major project of the Rosewood Parent- Teachpr Assn. at the first fall meeting Tuesday in Rosewood School.
