STUDENTS REGISTER AT SfU Swarming in to register Wednesday at the Alton campus, students and would-be students almost swamped the facilities. Here is a scene in the final check station before students are admitted. Classes Start Today Area SIU Enrollment May Top 5,300 Total Enrollment at Southern Illinois University, EdwardsvUle Campus — which includes Alton and East St. Louis centers — may top 5,300 this year, the Telegraph learned today. Classes got underway at 8 a.m. today following fall registration day Wednesday. The usual crush of lines of waiting students was virgually eliminated by advance registration of about 4,000 students. About 1,300 students were expected to register at both centers Wednesday and through this week. Late, registration will be possible until Oct. 2. The record enrollment surpasses the 4,625 students enrolled at Edwardsville Campus last year. Nearly all of the 1,100 in the Ireshman class at both centers enrolled during the summer. Freshman orientation was held Monday at Edwardsville and Tuesday at each of the centers. Meetings and tours were used to acquaint the new students with the university. No statistics were available to give a breakdown on the number of students registered at each center. Registration statistics count the student enrolled at the center where he registers. This gives an accurate count despite some students having some classes in their schedule at both centers. Red China Predicts KhrughchevOverthrow TOKYO (AP) - Appealing to Russian pride and revolutionary tradition, Red China predicted today that the Soviet people would Nome day overthrow Premier Khrushchev. Following the complete about face of the Alton Plan Commission regarding inclusion of sidewalks in subdivisions outside the city, the City Council Wednesday approved the final plat of Addition No. 2 to Storeyland Subdivision on Humbert Road. John Storey is one of the Godfrey area subdividers who has been caught between the opposing regulations of Alton and Godfrey. Godfrey township officials claim !hat they will not maintain nor as- jsume liability for sidewalks in Godfrey subdivisions at the insistence of the Alton Plan Commis sion and City Council. Several council members including James Bailey said they would like to see the sidewalk issue settled once and for all. The council feels that if the city cannot maintain the sidewalks nor assume the liability they will go along with exclusion of them in the Godfrey area. Following another Plan Commission recommendation the Council approved a final plat of the first nddition to Glazebrook Heights, which also docs not include sidewalks. The final subdivision of Lamperts re-sub division in, the Smith and Bing ham additions in-the city was also given the nod by the council. A resolution and report from the Citizens Bond Issue Supervisory Committee for the invest ment of sewer funds was adopted and a report from the Civil Defense Commission was read and placed on file. . > Detroit Girls School Accepts Two Men DETROIT (AP) — Mercy College turned co-educational this fall, and its only two men students are learning to cope with being outnumbered by 950 girls. "The director of testing said to me, 'After a while, they'll treat you like another one of the plat of Mantz's re- girls,' " Robert Woods, 19, Wayne, told Jerry Sup, 17, Hamtramck. "Is that good?" asked Sup. Council Vacates Doivntown A rea For Post Office The Alton City Council Wednes-! day night adopted an ordinance vacating portions of West Eighth Street and connecting alley sec-i tions between Piasa and Belle j Streets, clearing the way for Alton's new post office. ; Of the 13 aldermen at thej meeting, only Clifford Dabbs! voted against the proposal, declaring that he could "see no| benefit" in the measure. Alderman Roy Geltz said the new post office would be a "great contribution" to the west end of the city and that he believed other growth would result. "It's likely much downtown business will siphon off there," he added. Geltz, chairman of the ordinance committee, said he "hopes Union Electric sees it the same as we do." This was an apparent reference to his charge at a previous council meeting that the electric company had hiked its price for the Belle Street property involved in the post office transaction. The city reduced from $20,000 to $10,000 the compensation it wanted for vacating the street. Man Burned in Gas Furnace Explosion EDWARDSVILLE—Don Lexow, 1101 Randle St., is reported today in satisfactory condition at St. Joseph's Hospital, Alton, where he was taken early Wednesday morning following a gas furnace explosion at his residence. Lexow, who suffered first and second degree burns on chest and arms, was reported to have been lighting the pilot light of the furnace when the explosion occurred. AGAIN ROCKFORD, HI—Becky Chapman, 9, went roller skating two years ago and broke her left arm. Her mother put the skates away until the other day when Becky persuaded her mother it was time to try again. Now Becky has a hroken right arm as a result of her second skating venture. Becky is despondent but Blackie, her pet Myna bird tells her its "OK, OK, OK." (AP Wirephoto) Courts Loaded With Civil Rights Cases SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-An atmosphere charged with civil rights issues is responsible for the licnvy load of such oases In the U.S. Supreme Court, Chief Jus tico Earl Warren declared in an unusual defense of the high tribunal. "Because the very atmosphere in which we live is charged with flint subject," Warren said Wednesday night, that is "the main mason we have so many civil rights eases these days." Speaking to the California State Bur convention, Warren said the civil rights ferment "is not confined to our own country. It is worldwide in its implications." Warren reminded those who criticize the court for moving too fast on civil rights that it is a court of review, and can't initiate legal action. He spoke at a dinner in his i honor attended by virtually the entire U.S. Supreme Court—seven of the eight associate justices. Only Justice John Harlan was unable to be present. U'arren, a former Republican governor of California, heard California Chief Justice Phil S. Gibson praise the court for its decisions on exactly the issues thnt others have harshly attacked, | such as segregation and school I prayers. ; California Gov. Edmund G. ; Brown joined Gibson in deploring "vicious slanders" against Wari ren by "hate mongers." Brown isaid he knew "that the bar of jihis state will give no haven to | the John Birch Society, which has ! become nationally infamous in its i efforts to impugn the integrity of one of the greatest chief justices in our history." ; The 72-year-old chief justice is the target of a Birch drive to im; peach him. 1 Half a dozen pickets marched in : front of the auditorium where Warren spoke, carrying signs call'; ing for his impeachment. He ! avoided them by entering through : a garage. R & R to Start Work on Central Paving Oct. 2 R&R Construction Co., re cently awarded an Alton MKT contract for the repaying of Central Avenue from E. 4th to Broadway, has notified Public Works Director Paul Lenx that it plans to start construction on or about Oct.. 2. Plans call for a 42-foot concrete slab to replace the brick surfact ruined by a rain deluge of last May which blew out the Central sewer. The R&R firm bid in the job at $23,363. The affected block has been closed to through vehicle traffic since the May itorm. Repairs for the sewer were long ago completed. Next project for a concrete pavement, which the city also expects to KOI completed this season, is that for the W. Gth Street extension from Piasa to Belle. Bids have been called through the Public Works Department for] 10 a.m. Oct. 7 and contemplates that the City Council can award a construction contract at its meeting two days later. Total length of the improvement is about 300 feet including the crossing over the GM&O tracks in Piasa Street. The city is now having a former business building at 521 Belle St. demolished to clear the last piece of right-of-way acquired for the fith Street extension. LaRoss Wrecking Co., the contractor, already has the razing job well advanced. The extension and improvement of W. MM, as a motor fuel tax project, has been in the making for three and a half years — since early in ]9(iO. It is part of a plan to afford better access and egress for the downtown (west end) business district. FOR SALE or LEASE Y.M.C.A. BUILDING 2 WEST THIRD ST..
