(AP Wirephotn) Scouts set aside utility board's request to construct sewer line The executive board of the Piasa Bird Council of Boy Scouts set aside a request. Tuesday night by the Godfrey Utility board for permission to construct a sewer line across the northeast corner of Camp Warren Lcvis in Godfrey. Several board members asked for a more complete report on the project, after the utility board proposed a $1 a year lease of a strip of land 30 by 800 feet. The proposed sewer line would connect the Rocky Fork sewage logoon with the Monticello lagoon, and app a r e n 11 y would prevent overflowing of (lie Rocky Fork lagoon into a creek that leads into the lake at the camp, which has been Jacobv 011 bridge By OSWALD & JAMES JACOBY NORTH 23 4Q VQ743 • K10876 *AQ10 WEST EAST AKJ92 48654 VJ865 V92 • 42 4Q53 #743 #KJ85 SOUTH (D) 4A1073 VAK10 4AJ9 + 962 North-South vulnerable West North East South 1N.T.

Pass Pass Pass Opening lead—4 7 The only real disadvantage of the Stayman two-club convention is that an alert opponent may double the artificial two-club bid for lead directing purposes. Not that we approve of East's double of two clubs with only four clubs to the king-jack. Should South have elected to pass and North to redouble, North would have made at elast two odd and probably managed to collect an overtrick but South did bid two spades and was promptly put in three no-trump by North. Three no-trump did not f;'re very well. South finessed dummy's 10 of clubs at trick one. Back came a spade with West's king dropping dummy's singleton queen. Another club finesse saw dummy's Law for today queen dropping to East's king. Back came a spade. South's 10-spot finesse was covered by West's jack and a third club was led. Dummy's ace had to be played. Soufh went after diamonds by the normal play of leading to his acs and finessing the jack. That lost to the qucpn and East cashed his last club for two tricks down. If South had stopped to think at trick one he would have brought, home his contract in spite of losing the diamond finesse. He should have gone right up with dummy's ace of clubs and gone after diamonds at trick two. East would take his queen and lead back a spade but South would clatter with his ace and cash out his red suit winners.

Scout Executive Robert Hanawalt told the board the sewer line possibly could help rid the lake of pollution, but several board members were concerned as to the affect the line would have if the council decides to sell the camp. One board member said the land could never be used if the council would grant and easement to the utility board. Another said the council, which could use additional funds, should let the utility board condems the land, so that the courts could decide a fare price for the easement. The board finally okayed tabling the matter until the September board meeting, so that council officers and attorneys could look further into the matter Concerning a related financial matUu, the board appjoved taking bids on the sale of walnut and oak trees at Camp Warren Levis, in an effort to raise additional funds for the council. An Illinois Department of Conservation forester has recommended the trees be removed to allow younger, smaller trees to develop.

(AP) — Claiming he was denied tenure because of his criticism of policies at Southern Illinois University and not because of academic considerations, former professor Douglas Allen has sued in U.S. District Court for damages. The suit, filed Tuesday, asked $100,000 in damages and an immediate assurance of tenure from the board of trustees. The university and board of trustees were named as defendants. Allen was denied tenure in November 1970 after more than five years as a member of the philosophy department. In April 1971, he was informed his contract would not be renewed at the end of the 1971-72 school year. The board o f trustees subsequently reaffirmed its position denying tenure. The suit contends the board acted in retaliation for his — criticism of the school and the controversial Vietnam Study Center, long a focal point for antiwar protests. Allen also contended the board overstepped its jurisdiction in refusing to grant him tenure. He said it was the first time in the university's history that the mature of tenure had been brought before the board. Normally, such recommendations are made by each department and approved by the president. He had been recommended for tenure by the philosophy department. His suit contends he w a s denied his rights of freedom of speech under the First and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and the right to due process under the Fifth and 14th Amendments.
