But Klelboeker, who was born on the farm 46 years ago, expressed concern about how much and would be required for the marker. "But I guess I can plow around t," he said. The new center, based on the I960 census of 50 states, is 57 miles west and 16H miles south of the 1950 center, which was based on the population of 4$ states. The 1950 center was in a corn field 8 miles northwest of Quincy. The I960 center Is about 701 miles west and 47 miles south of the center in 1790, when the first census was taken. In Oteey, a town of some 9,000, Mayor Paul Abegglen said the community's 10 years as population center brought "definite indirect benefits." He said residents took great pride in the title although some objected to publicity connected with the selection In 1950. "Some people are against any kind of progress," he said. "We would have liked to hang on to the title but we're happy for Centralia." Centralia, recently designated by the federal government as a depressed area, is a railroad town and a fruit and farming center. It once was a coal mining town but coal production ended in 1948, a year after 111 miners perished n an underground explosion at Centralia No. 5 mine.

In a statement boasting that the Soviet Union, "the land of triumphant socialism," had "opened the new era in the development of mankind," the Soviet government and the party issued an appeal for peace to all countries and called on all people "to make an all-out effort to put an end to the arms race, to effect universal and c omplete disarmament, to ensure world peace." "We place the Soviet achievements not in the service of war, but in the service of peace and the security of the peoples," the statement said. Scientists around the world hailed the Soviet achievement. The Young Communist League entered the name of Gagarin, a i married man with two daughters, in its book of honor, terming him an "outstanding example of selfless service to the homeland."

Fire Pension Board Makes Election Plans The Firemen's pension board j employs several hundred men in a large car building shop. The population of Centralia, which is 65 miles east of St. Louis and 250 miles south of Chicago, is nearly 100 per cent native born, more than 80 per cent white and more than 85 per cent of the residents own their own homes.

Anoth* in «n serin of bills passed by the House Tuesday would limit an installment seller to either repossessing the article of a defaulting purchaser or the batenee of the unpaid price. Under present law, installment sellers "frequently get both," said Rep. Abner Mikva, 0-Chicago, chief sponsor of the bills. Rep. Elroy C. Sando^tist, R-Chicago, said he opposed the bills "they will hurt the working man." Sew Difficulty "It'll be hard for the working man to buy a car," Sandquist said. He said the legislation "will hamstring 98 per cent of the auto dealers in Illinois" because it will limit their ability to give credit. Rep. William E. Pollack of Chicago, Republican floor leader, said the assignment measure would hurt credit in general by eliminating methods of collection. "You'll be chasing all the lenders out of the state," Pollack declared. In other action, Rep. John Morris, D-Chadwick, introduced 60 bills designed to freeze property assessments at their current level. Morris proposed a ceiling on assessments for tax purposes at 55 per cent of full value, a move to prevent the use of multipliers in boosting assessments higher. Under present law, the state revenue department fixes multipliers with the purposes of eo^ial- izing local assessments at a theoretical 100 per cent valuation. In reality, assessments now average about 55 per cent. Morris sponsored similar bills two years ago but they were defeated by the Senate. j Other Bills Also introduced were three segments of Kerner's program, which he outlined to the legislature two weeks ago. One measure calls for retaining the half-cent state sales tax increase put on temporarily two years ago for school aid. Another provides for an 11- member capital budget planning board to oversee state construction activities involving highways, TtcolV«groe» Employed at Homing Job Two NeffO resMtms of Alton '£» I/ ., Wit BIUUfMUH) win only MI iMtniRWM of tnt ihi^^^^^^—i ~~ BwrarCHy, IMSS ^M^A milt were hired Tuesday as employed at Alton Housing Authority's lOtMinlt projwt Ml Belle street.

After the session, the first _ttew "Theee international dedtlons did not introduce anything new," Hausner said. "Murder Is murder and a crime is a crime. These international laws merely reaffirmed what has been accepted long since." As to tha ex post facto character of the I960 Israeli law, .Hausner cited some 20 nations that enacted similar laws for the punishment of war criminals and made them retroactive. "The Jewish people have a very long account to settle with the Nazis," the attorney general said, "but they were deprived of the opportunity until the establish ment of the state of Israel in 1948." For the most part it was a dry, coldly meticulous recital. Occa sionally one of the judges broke In to ask Hausner to clarify a point of law. Eichmann seemed lost in his thoughts. He barely moved in his chair. Recalls Crimea Then, suddenly, Hausner shifted the focus from the international and common law to one man and his alleged acts. He recalled that Servatius had said, in his opening statement, that "the.accused alone cannot atone for acts of his country, that he was dragged along through no fault of his own." Hausner's voice began to rise in volume. Suddenly, he began gesturing and his black robes whirled around him. 'Adolf Eichmann was not just an ordinary cog in the wheel," he said. "We will prove to this court that he initiated, planned, organized, and attempted to carry out efforts to exterminate the Jews in Europe." The attorney general, replying to Questions from Supreme Court Justice Moshe Landau, president of the court, said he would need all of today's session and part of Friday's to complete his argument.
