(AP>—The Illinois legislature has voted to buy the Sangamon County court house, the state's Civil War caplt ol where Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous "House Divided" speech. A bill appropriating $1,015,000 tor the state to purchase the weather-worn structure and con vert It Into a Lincoln shrine passed the House Thursday and moved to Qov. Otto Kerner's desk. Kemer, who is wrestling with state financial problems, has in dlcated he would approve the bill if the money is available. The courthouse, located in down town Springfield, was the State Capitol from 1840 to 1876 and Lincoln served In the Legislature there. Lincoln's body lay in state in the structure before being entombed in Oak Ridge Cemetery. Sangamon County's board of supervisors has talked about tearing down the dilapidated three-story structure because it is inadequate to house county offices. One legislator described the building as "second only to Independence Hall" in historical importance but another termed it "an historical wreck." Rep. George Coutrakon, one ol the Springfield attorney who has portrayed Lincoln for 30 years said if the state failed to buy the Tom Dornbuseh is in charge of i building ft would be lost to his- staging.

The former bmrtnwsman from Pasadena, Calif., ravaged by cancer, was rushed to the U.S. Air Force Hospital at the base north of Manila on arriving from Hong Kong. Arrangements tor his flight on to the United States were not complete. McCann's wife, who traveled 9.000 miles to Tientsin to plead with the Chinese Communists for her husband's release, said the doctors In Hong Kong had given her husband "only a few days to live." "The end can come any day," uhe said. "There is no hope." McCann, 60, seemed in great pain as he was carried on a stretcher from the Air Fbtt* transport that brought him from Hong Kong. The cancer that started in his lungs has riddled his entire body and reached his brain. Mrs. McCann said that since she first saw her husband last Thursday, she had not discussed with him the vague charge of espionage on which the Comma nists sentenced him in 1951 to 15 years in prison. "The matter is now of minor importance," she said.

Ask Judgment The plaintiffs have asked both an injunction and a declaratory judgment that dump and ready- mix trucks are exempt from ther stature requirement for splash-guards. When the hearing opened, the assistant attorney genera sought a transfer of the sul fo the Sangamon County CTr cult Court, contending the Al ton court lacked venue because no local enforcement actions were shown to have affected the petitioners.
