Christine's life as a call girl culminated in the affair with Profumo. This led to Profumo's resignation as war minister in the Conservative government and the trial on vice charges of Ward, who introduced her to the Cabinet member. Ward took a lethal dose of drugs and died without knowing he had been convicted. Hutchinson said in conclusion: "We have reached the last stage in the last chapter of this long saga which has been called the Keeler affair. "Ward is dead. Profumo is disgraced. And now I know that your lordship will resist the temptation to take what I might call society's pound of flesh." The judge also Imposed a six- month sentence on Christine but it will run concurrently with the longer term.

In announcing his trip to the Vatican Ecumenical Council Wednesday, Ihe Pope said he wanted to visit the places where Christ was born, lived and died. All of those shr'nes are in Jordanian territory except Nazareth. The Pope, in his original announcement, tied his trip to Christian unity, saying he would pray for the union of nil believers in Christ. Italian newspapers speculated today that he might see Patriarch Athenagor- as of Constantinople (Istanbul) in the Holy Land. Atenagoras is titular head of the Orthodox churches. 11 th Century Break Many sources here believed the Pope's trip to the East was aimed particularly at the Eastern churches which broke away from Rome in the 11th Century. The dates of the trip are significant. Jan. 6 is the Feast of the Epiphany, commemorating the presentation of gifts to the infant Jesus by the three Wise Men. The Pope will therefore bo in the Holy Land on this important holiday, but he will avoid becoming involved in a centuries- old dispute wth the Orthodox churches concerning Christmas Boom Superhighway Down Middle Of State DECATUR, 111. (AP)-Kcgion- nl groups promoting a multilane highway for 275 miles down the center of Illinois arc getting together today to organize a statewide campaign. The meeting is a result of regional sessions held in Rockford, Bloomington, Vandalia, LaSalle and Decatur. Sponsors, particularly the Chicago Motor Club, said tho campaign must get into high gear for two reasons: A highway planning body created by tho state legislature will be reporting to the general assembly by April 1, and should have the midstatc highway recommendation before then. 2. Congress may augment the interstate h i g h w a y program next year and should be asked to consider the midstate routo proposal. Promoters are suggesting a new highway replace U.S. 51 between the Rockford area and Marion County. It would accommodate traffic between Wisconsin and a junction with Interstate 57. Spokesmen have estimated it would cost $61 million to make U.S. 51 a modern highway be- twen Centralia and Beloit, Wis. They said a new, four-lane route generally following tho course of U.S. 51 could be built for $225 million. The new route, they said, would become a major link between Minneapolis, Milwaukee and 1-57 which eventually will extend to New Orleans. ,* Colonel SanaW R«cip« ' • K «nWku fried tftotan "it'$ Jinger-lidun' goal* * • . • . t • THRIFT BOX OF CHICKEN (9 Pieces) $|50 Above Specials Good Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Dec 7, 8 and 9th Only. 615 S. 10th PHONE 242-5324 BIRTHS Mr. and Mrs. Charles E.
