EDWAKDSVII.LE — Nancy Laurie is a geographer by training who now maps plans for the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. Her title Is administrative assistant to dental school Dean Frank Sobkowski, but her job title does not begin to describe the assignments she has undertaken and completed since coming to SIU in 1969, when planning was just beginning for the dental school that will open with its first class of students in September. Miss Laurie grew up in California and in 1966 graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles with a degree in geography. But jobs in; geography were difficult to find, so she took a job in the admissions office of the UCLA School of Dentistry "quite by chance," she said. Soon she was working for SobkowsW, at that time assistant dean at the UCLA denial school. In early 1969, after a nationwide search, the SIU Board of Trustees appointed Sobkowski as dean of the new school on the Alton campus. "I came to SIU mainly because Dr. Sobkowski asked me to," Miss Laurie said. "I'd become really enthusiastic about dentistry." Helping develop a dental school from the beginning can be frustrating, Miss Laurie said, but it has many rewards, too. "It's especially pleasing to get an assignment where you break new ground and organize things from start to finish," she said. Some of her assignments have included developing a catalog, handling the details of student financial aid and planning orientation activities for the first class. To such assignments were added unexpected tasks that developed while the dental school was trying to obtain necessary funding from the state and meet the accreditation criteria of the American Dental Association. "I guess there were times I wondered if the dental school ever would open," Miss Laurie said. "With funds to higher education harder to come by than anytime before, this is a difficult period to try to start a professional school." Despite the obstacles, the dental school developed much faster than the six or seven year start-up time other dental schools had needed. "I'm surprised and pleased that the SIU School of Dental Medicine could start classes as soon as this year," Miss Laurie said. "We're far ahead of most dental schools and I think that's attributable to the enthusiasm of the people who matter." She said the enthusiasm in the community has never ceased to amaze her. "The people in this area seem to be very excited," she said. "They want and need the dental school." One of her assignments has been to communicate with the school's various internal end external publics. As internal communicator, she edits the dental school's newsletter, which combines serious features on dental care with personal news of faculty and staff and the widely read "Molar Messenger," based on the serial format of several popular radio farces.

Richard B. crossed paths briefly the race track as the Into camper a street truck where was shaking hands with a crowd. The Democratic challenger looked up but Ogilvie, sitting in the p-ont seat next to the driver, appeared not to notice. Walker did exchange pleasantries with Republican Attv. Gen. William J. Scott in the grandstand as the sleek trotting horses went through their trial heats. In fact, most major political figures in the state were on hand to mine the Hambletonlan and ad- Joining fairgrounds for possible votes. After the race, Walker flew to Cairo, for a cocktail party with supporters and then to Metropolis for more campaigning. He planned to campaign in a number of central and Southern Illinois cities today before appearing w'rh Missouri Sen Thomas F. Eagleton at a Democratic dinner in Carbondale. The nominee of the party's Miami convention for vice president agreed to become the featured speaker after the man who replaced him on the ticket, Sargent Shriver, canceled a 10-clty tour to remain in Washington. Walker's summer-long journey through the state by jeep, ends Friday with the opening of his Champaign campaign. Earlier, Walker's headquarters issued a statement in which he attacked Ogilvie for not releasing funds to con- struct a reservoir on Salt Creek in DuPage County. Walker said the severe flooding which hit Chicago's western suburbs Friday would not have occurred if the reservoir had been constructed. A spokesman for the water ways division of the state Transportation Department In Springfield, said the funds were "not available." The Democratic challenger was well received by the crowds at the Hambletonlan. He was applauded vigorously when his name was announced over the loudspeaker, as was Ogilvie's.

(AP Wirephoto) Coal ban urged in Chicago CHICAGO (AP) - The Illinois Pollution Control Board urged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today to ban the residential and commercial use of coal in the Chicago area. Steven N. Klein, assistant to Board Chairman David P. Currie, said the restriction was "absolutely essential t« achieving clean air." Klein testified at an EPA public hearing in Chicago on Illinois' plan to implement federal air quality standards. Klein said the use of coal in small, uncontrolled fuel- burning units is the principal source of Chicago's high levels of sulfur-dioxide and particulate air pollution. The Illinois Pollution Control Board's coal ban regulation was declared unconstitutional April 27 in Circuit Court. Judge Nathan M. Cohen, acting on a suit filed by the Chicago Coal Merchants Association and the Roth-Adam Fuel Co., enjoined the board against enforcement of the coal ban.
