The plan to unite the two dc nominations of parallel history >vas announced Friday following a :wo-day meeting in Chicago. Talks and study have been under way tor about eight years. The target date for final mer- jer is 1968. Another joint meeting in Nashville in December will re- ine the plan for submission to the Methodist Church's general conference in Pittsburgh next spring. Approval there is "almost a cer- ainty," a spokesman sa'd. The CUB Church would act on the proposal at its 1966 general con- 'erence in Wichita, followed by action at lower levels. Methodist Bishop Glenn R. Philips of Denver, joint president of the Chicago meeting with EUB Bishop Reuben H. Mueller of In diaapolic, termed the plan a move 'to strengthen the Protestant voice." "The more we get together as Protestants the more we strength' our cause," Bishop Phillips said. He cited criticism of the fact that there are some 200 Protestant churches and "splinter :roups."

Driver Charged After Crash at Wood River WOOD RIVER — A minor auto accident involving cars driven by Dr. James A. Wiseman, 45, of 137 Rosewood, Rosewood Heights, and Danny R.

Both cars were traveling north on Wood River Avenue with Dr. Wiseman in front, the police report said. When Wiseman stopped prepa ratory to turning left into an eating spot in the 600 block of Wood River Avenue, Myers boy was unable to stop his vehicle in time to avoid a collision, police said. Charged with "following too close," the youth is slated to appear for a preliminary hearing on the charge at 4 p.m. Monday before Police Magistrate 0. W. Vernor, police said. Man Fined $15 for Traffic Violations Robert Beecher Dial, 30, of 2818 E. Broadway in Alton was fined $10 and cost this morning on a charge of traffic violation and $5 and cost for driving without a license. Dial was arrested Monday after being involved in a three-car collision at E. Broadway and Indiana Avenue. The car he was driving struck the rear of another car stopped for a traffic signal, knocking it into the car in front of it, police said. Eulnlia Hot* this morning agreed to contact an engineer to study the existing heating plant to determine costs and equipment needed to convert to natural gas. A move to consider replacing the coal-fed system was initiated here early this month when county officials failed to obtain a single bid for emergency repairs to the deteriorating 100- foot tall brick smoke stack above the heating plant building. Large cracks and openings are visible in a 20-foot section of the smoke stack which towers above the plant adjacent to the jail building. Dean Cunningham, a sales engineer for Illinois Power Co., In a letter to the jail committee, said the county "would ' be ahead" by converting to new gas designed boilers. The present coal burning boiler units could be salvaged, jail committee chairman William Bryant said this morning. Cunningham said in the letter that installation of separate gas heating units in the jail and courthouse buildings would decrease difference in cost between coal and gas. In the existing coal system, steam heat from coal-fed stokers is piped under Edwardsville's main street from the heating plant to the courthouse several hundred yards away. A separate unit in the courthouse would eliminate the present heat loss in piping steam under the ground to the courthouse, the committee was told. Four men are hired in the winter season to fire the boilers at a total cost of $8,000 per year. In a gas system the firemen would be eliminated and equipment would be maintained by the utility company. "If we converted to gas it would cost more in the beginning until equipment is paid for but after 3 or 4 years the county could possibly save between $3,500 to $4,000 a year," Bryant estimated.
