L&C help welcomed*, says Lenz Alton Mayor Paul Lenz: today said he welcomed assistance from Lewis & Clark Community College in solving Alton problems and praised the junior college for seeking federal funds for programs aimed at helping disadvantaged youth and the elderly in the Alton area. Lenz said Lewis & Clark "has guidelines in which they can help the communities where they reside, and I think it is obligatory for them to do this. I commend them for looking into what they could do in such a short time." I^enz also said today he would soon make public the names of persons he has appointed to a task force that is charged with recommending a structure and role of a Community Relations Commission. The mayor said he had appointed most of the members, but needed to confirm their acceptance before making an announcement. Lenz said he would not withhold the report recently made by a U.S. Justice Department consultant, from the task force, but he said consideration of the report, which was critical of some procedures used by the Civil Service Commission in testing applicants for city jobs, was not within the responsibility of the task force. Lenz said he wou'.d probably give copies of the report to city council members but didn't think there was any reason for the council to discuss the report because "implementation of that report per se was never intended by the Justice Department — these are suggestions, not a mandate." Lenz said that the Community Relations Commission, when it became operational, was the best body to examine the Justice Department, report and could decide what points raised in the report were applicable to Alton problems.

Lost brother found again A 63 year old Alton man who was wounded and captured as a 13 year old Polish liberator after World War I was reunited here last week with his brother who believed he had been killed 50 years ago. "I can't believe you are still alive,"Waller Mydlo said in amazement to his brother Frank, last week in a tearful reunion in Alton. "It's been 50 years. We thought you were killed in the war." Frank, an employe in the maintenance - grounds department at Alton Memorial Hospital, was given up as lost and dead after he went into war against the Germans as a 13 year old volunteer Polish infantryman in World War I. In the bitter fighting, Frank was wounded twice, and finally captured. "Thousands were killed in the battles," Mydlo told the Telegraph. "I was captured and hauled away to a prison camp." When Mydlo failed to return home, his family sorrowfully believed he had lost his life in the war front. In a daring escape, however, the teenage Mydlo fled the prison camp and swam across the river to freedom. Later, the mystery of his whereabouts heightened when he left Poland and came to the United States to seek work. By UENNIS MCMURRAY Telegraph Staff Writer A self-styled "consumer gadfly" and periodic candidate for various state offices, has asked the Illinois Commerce Commission to order Illinois Power Co. to immediately suspend all its advertising and to reduce all its executive salaries to no higher than the $45,000 a year paid to the Governor of Illinois. Anthony F. Martin-Trigona of Champaign, also, in a motion filed with the ICC, argued that Illinois Power should be required to pay the legal costs of its customers who are opposed to the current request for a 15 per cent general electric rate increase. Martin-Trigona argues that since the utility is using funds from its customers payments to pay for its legal cost in seeking the rate increase, it should also make available funds to customers who oppose the increase. He noted in the motion that Illinois Power's last request for a 15 per cent rate increase was denied in full by the Commission in May, and LIGHTNING LOW PRICES PLUS TOP VALUE STAMPS! \ TRY OUR U.S.D.A.

Ph. 488-3431 Martin-Trigona contends the arguments used in the current case are "substantially identical" and therefore IP is "burdening the Commission with repetitive and vexatious rate cases."
