Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday, August 29, 1972 A-3 'Ike and Mamie 9 clubs launched for teenagers An Edwardsville woman, who journeyed to fha Republican Convention at Miami Beach at her own expense, is trying to organize "Ike and Mamie" clubs throughout, the United Stales to promote civic action among teenagers. Mrs. Lena Tunnell who heads the volunteers for Nixon in Madison County, said the clubs were frir teenagers "of the highest character. We don't want any hippies." The youths, who would be between the ages of 14 and 19, would be involved civic work such as voter registration efforts, Mrs. Tunnell said. The "Ike clubs" would be for boys, the "Mamie clubs" for girls. Mrs. Tunnell said she has written President Nixton, the president's daughter, Julie Eisenhower, Sen. Barry Goldwater and Sen. Charles Percy, and their response ha* been enthusiastic. Rather than send literature out around the country, Mrs. Tunnell decided to go to Miami Beach and distributes it personally. "The response there was really great," Mrs. Tunnell said. "Lot's of people were interested." Part of the literature sets the ideals of the clubs in the letters of the name, Eisenhower. The first "e" is for ethical, the second for "enthusiastic" and so on. Mrs. Tunnell said clubs are being startel iin Alton, Troy, Edwardsville and Collinsville. 2 stolen pigs are shot Neighborhood feud results • "I • m -• m charges agamst couple A hazard improved Improvement of the dangerous intersection of Alby Street with the Beltline is progressing.

(Photos by Robert K. Graul.) ROODHOUSE - The Greene County sheriff's department and farmer Ronald Early of Roodhouse today were investigating the puzzling shooting of two of Early's pigs and why one of the animals was carted off and the other left injured. Early, whose farm is at Rte. 3, Roodhouse, said this morning that he figured the pig stealers must have been hungry since the 100 pound pigs would have been worth only about $35 "on the hoof," and not wcrth stealing them to sell. Early and his son noticed some pigs missing Monday so they saddled their horses to A street 'brawl between neighbors in the 600 block of Bowman in East Alton Monday night resulted in the arrests of one couple on two charges each. Police were called by Gertrude Zitt, 619 Bowman, who said there was a man with a gun in the street in front of her house. Sgt. Dennis Childs and Patrolman Mike Bristow found Carl Robertson Jr., 619 Bowman, John Willtford, 622 Bowman and a third man in the street. The third man was not in- volved in the fight. Mrs. Zitt came out of her house as the officers arrived and said Willeford had threatened to get a gun to use on Robertson. While Childs and Bristow were getting details of the fight, Mrs. Viola Joyce Willeford drove up, got out of her car, walked over to Mrs. Zitt and hit her in the face, giving her a bloody nose. Mrs. Zitt retreated into her house and the policemen put Mrs. Willeford into the squad car, under arrest. While they were busy with Mrs. Willeford, her husband took a punch at Robertson and connected sending him into the house. Bristow had to wrestle Willeford to the ground and handcuff him to get him into the patrol car. The Willefords were taken to the police station and charged with disorderly conduct, but Robertson and Mrs. Zitt did not come to sign stronger charges, and the couple was released with a notice to Two gunmen rob hardware store of $160; tie up owner Two gunmen took $160 in a daylight holdup of the Central Avenue Hardware Store in Alton Monday. Shortly after 4 p.m. the pair of gunmen walked into the hardware store at 1415 Central Ave., and demanded money from owner John Wilkinson. One man pushed a pistol at Wilkinson's stomach and told the store owner to lie down behind the counter. After Wilkinson did so he was told to open the cash register, so he partially raised himself and pushed a button to open the cash drawer. Grabbing the $59.73 in the cash drawer, the gunman insisted that there must be more money and putting his gun to Wilkinson's head he demanded more cash. Wilkinson told the gunman where a cash box was hidden which contained a $100 reserve. After cleaning out the $100, t h e two men ordered Wilkinson into the second room of his two-part store, and using the rope from a tree trimming tool they trussed his hands and legs. The men fled and Wilkinson started working on his bonds. After freeing his legs, he started walking through the store, dragging the tree trimmer with him and at this point a customer came in and freed him. appear in court. Later in the evening, Mrs. Zitt and Robertson arrived at the station and Mrs. Zitt said that while they were driving to police headquarters, John Willeford tried to hit their car on Main Street, at Broadway. Mrs. Zitt signed a complaint for battery against Mrs. Willeford. Bristow went back home with Robertson and Mrs. Zitt and to serve the warrant for battery on Mrs. Willeford. While Bristow was at the Willeford house, Willeford crossed the street and hit Robertson. Willeford was then arrested for assault.
