They had already separated themselves from campus jobs in the United States and were ready to' go to Saigon when the U.S. State Department halted entry of Americans into tho independent Asian country 8,000 miles distant because of the turmoil. Many Americans were strand od in such ports as Hong Kong and Singapore, but all five seeking to join other SIU team members at Saigon are in the United States. Four are scheduled to make their first journey into the Far Eastern country to join 10 educators already there. The fifth, on leave in Carbondale after two years in South Vietnam, cannot return to his post until restrictions are lifted. Willis Malone, who returned to the SIU campus here this summer after serving as chief of the party of advisers at the SIU elementary teacher training project in South Vietnam since 1961, said, however, that efforts are being made to at least get key personnel into the country. The team members now in South Vietnam with their families are advising normal schools at Saigon and three other cities in training of teachers and engaging in vocational training at Saigon.

"Job opportunities have been increased through a program de signed to attract new industry to our state," the governor said. "A great part of this work has been handled through the Board of Eco nomic Development, which works with communities and other local ;roups in courting new business.] Already the board has assisted communities in attracting 20 new ndustries to the state, with a payroll that will benefit 5,000 persons in five years. More than 60 firms have expressed interest in locating in Illinois and several are presently negotiating for sites within the state." The governor emphasized that increased job opportunities will be of no benefit to persons unequipped to qualify because of lack of education or training.
