THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1963 DEATHS Marv.n Malone Dies; Attended School By Phone Marvin Dempsey MaJone, the courageous Mt.

Supports Woodlawn City Manager Chester Lewis asked the state highway department and federal bureau of roads to give serious consideration to providing access to the superhighway in the vicinity of Woodlawn"The proposal provides no interstate access between Mt. Vernon and Richview, a distance of J4 miles," Lewis said. "This will create considerable hardship for vehicular movement in the intermediate area, especially when Interstate 57 is complete. "In a distance of 14 miles several thousands of people live and travel. As Interstate 57 is completed travel will increase to recreational as well as metropolitan areas including Mt. Vernon. "It would appear that an access in the immediate area of Woodlawn would provide a worthwhile service to a large segment of the population north and south of proposed 1-64." , The city manager supported Eggs and i both the proposed routing through I Jefferson county and the "accelerated construction" of the east- west superhighway. "Mt. Vernon considers itself fortunate in being selected as one of the very few communities that will be the recipient of two major transcontinental freeways," he said. "U.S. Interstate 64 is of major importance to southern Illinois- It will remove isolation, assist in encouraging economic growth and provide a high type highway to replace existing second class routes between this community and major metropolitan areas."

Vernon attorney representing Woodlawn area residents, stated the case for the proposed Woodlawn interchange. The interchange, he said, would give access to the west shore of Rend Lake through Woodlawn, Waltonviile and down state route 148. He said that the Corps of Engineers estimate that Rend Lake will eventually attract 3,840,000 visitors per year. He outlined other reasons for the interchange as follows: 1—It would be of great benefit to persons residing in the Woodlawn community and the western portion of Jefferson county. 2—If the interchange Is not constructed people of the area would have to use curving, dangerous, outmoded U. S. Route 460 to get to Mt. Vernon. 3—It would afford a direct, fast and safe route to Mt. Vernon and to St. Louis 4—It would give the Walton viile mine a direct route to 1-64 for trucking coal. 5— It would increase the accessibility of Woodlawn and help it to prosper.

This wooden idol periodically was taken out in procession and many of the faithful prostrated themselves before his car (which was of great weight) and were crashed. Attorney N. Y. Dowell said the people of the Bluford-Belle Rive-Opdyke area plan to present a strong case for an interchange on the east side of the county. Bliss told Dowell that if a petition is passed for an interchange in that area and statements supporting it are obtained, they will accept as a part of today's hearing. "It will be done in ten days," Dowell said. Many other speakers rushed to support the proposed access on the east side of the county. Charles W. Waite, chairman of the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors which is composed of supervisors of all 16 townships in the county, presented official resolutions of the county board supporting interchanges at Woodlawn and in the Belle Rive-Opdyke-Blufovd area. Also testifying in behalf of the proposed additional interchanges were Senator Paul Broyles of Mt- Vemon; Ogie Ellis, county superintendent of schools; Bill Howard, president of the Mt.

Marvin Powers, security Bank president who was chairman of a southern Illinois committee which successfully worked for the present southerly location of 1-64, said that people of Jefferson county and Illinois counties to the south i are happy over the proposed routing through Jefferson CHICAGO (API — With a deadline closing in, the Illinois Reapportionment Commission prepared to resume negotiations today aimed at breaking the stalemate over redistricting the Illinois House. The five Republican commissioners, who have boycotted recent meetings, announced they were willing to bargain "continuously until midnight Saturday in the hope that a fair constitutional reapportionment can be accomplished." Democrats were reported ready to submit sometime in the next 48 hours a plan that would allocate 21 districts to Chicago and 8 to the suburban area. It is the fight over Chicago districts that has deadlocked the commission. Republicans haven't met with Democrats since Nov. 14 because of Democratic demands for 22 or 23 districts in Chicago. The GOP group contends that population losses have reduced Chicago's constitutional allocation to 21 districts. Even though Democrats are expected to negotiate eventually on a 21-district basis, a final settlement probably will hinge on how those boundaries are drawn. Unless 7 of the 10 commissioners reach agreement, House candidates are faced with running on a statewide basis in the 1964 elections. The commission will go ovtt ol existence at midnight Saturday under a constitutional provision which keeps the group alive only four months following the appointment of members by Gov. Otto Kerncr. Democrats set the sta^e for the showdon by making public Wednesday their version for reapportioning downstate districts. The plan differs with the Republican proposal in four areas 1. Democrats seek to make Rock Island a single county district. Republicans want to keep Mercer County with Rock Island. 2. Democrats propose to draw one Lake County district to embrace the North Shore townships of Waukegan, Shields and Deerfield. The Republican map would cut Lake County across the miflkle. Both sides call for two districts in Lake. 3. Democrats propose to put Bond County in the 52nd District with Christian, Jersey, Macoupin, Montgomery and Shelby counties. Republicans would substitute Effingham for Bond. 4. Democrats would assign Effingham to the 55th district with FayettP. Clinton, Marion, Clay, Washington, Wayne and White counties.

Subzero cold added misery to the pre-winter storm in many parts of the Midwest. No immediate general breuk in the wintry weather was indicated in the snow-covcred Nortli Central region and heavy snow headed into Northeast sections. Blizzard! conditions were indicated in the Dakotas, Minnesota and parts of eastern Montana. The storm, striking 10 days before the start of the winter season, swept eastward from the midlands. Heavy snow and hazardous driving warnings were issued for northeastern New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and northern New England, with amounts ranging up to a half-foot. The current storm, wliich developed in the southern Rockies, was blamed for at least 11 traffic deaths, including four in Oklahoma which was hit hard by heavy snow and gusty winds. Five persons were killed in traffic accidents in Illinois and two in Iowa. The subzero belt covered areas in the Dakotas, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Minnesota, with 11 below in Sioux Falls, S.D.

McNamara, beset by furious congressmen, was expected to announce today economy-induced plans to close or reduce operations at 25 to 27 military bases in about 16 states. Reports from congressional sources late Wednesday forecast shutdown of more than 30 installations, with the loss of 75,000 jobs. But it was learned Mc-Namara's action will affect several bases fewer than that, and result in abolition of 9,000 to 12,000 jobs. There were indications the bases, large and small, would be phased out over perhaps three years. No naval shipyards were on the list of Army, Navy and Air Force bases due to be axed or reduced in scope. Rumors Wednesday said McNamara would move to close naval shipyards in Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco. One base in Ohio also was mentioned. House Speaker John W. McCormack ,D-Mass., acting for the entire Massachusetts delegation, carried to President Johnson Wednesday night a bipartisan protest against rumored closing of the Boston Navy Yard. Other protests rained on the White House from Pennsylvania, California, Now York and o t h e r state congressional ILLINOIS WEATHER CHICAGO (AP)-^Most of Illinois lay under 2 to 5 inches of snow today, with prospects of more to come and a strong northwest wind to whip it around. Packed snow, in many places over a foundation of frozen drizzle, plagued motor traffic virtually everywhere in the state except the southern tip. New fitful falls of snow already were reported in tlie Rantoul, Rockford and Chicago areas. The Weather Bureau said flurries will likely precede an oncoming wave of cold- clear to the Ohio River. Zero weather already has advanced from the west as far as northern Iowa, and the Weather Bureau said tonight's lows in Illinois will range mostly between 10 and 20. Afternoon readings today were about 10 degrees alxwe that. The heaviest falls of snow Wednesday and Wednesday night were in the Dubuque and Rockford areas, but 4-lnch falls wore recorded as far south as Vandalia.

Powers also supported addition of interchanges on the east and west sides of the county. vocate substituting Bond for Effingham. James A. Ronan of Chicago, a Democratic member of the commission, contended the Republican proposal for Lake Conty would insure election of two GOP representatives in each of the two districts. Each district in the stale elects three representatives. Miles Scat At Stake In the 52nd District, the Republican map would result in the defeat of one Democratic incumbent by throwing three sitting members together. The Democrats are Reps. Miles E. Mills, Effingham; Stuart Traynor, Taylorville, and Charles Schaefer, Nokomis. The Democrats propose to keep Mills in the 5th district. If Mercer County remains with Rock Island, Democrats said they would have little chance of ever winning two seats there. omy since succeeding the late President John F. Kennedy Nov. 22. Johnson told a news conference last Saturday he and Mc- Natnara were making a study of defense installations to determine which could be eliminated as a way of curbing spending This base survey program redatcd Johnson's rise to the presidency by about 2Vs years. It was inaugurated by McNamara in March 1961, about two months after the Kennedy administration took office. At that time, the Pentagon listed 6,700 bases and installations of various sorts, about 4,500 of them in this country and tlie rest abroad. Since March 19C1, the Defense Department says, more than 400 installations have been closed or reduced in scope. Claimed savings: about $316 million a year. MoNamara told Congress last January his goal was to take more such actions, so that by the end of the fiscal 1965—June 30, 1965— the annual savings will be increased to $442 million.

Between December 1st and December 24th this year we expect to handle 2-5 percent more thnn last year. A modest increase has already appeared and the heaviest is still to come." The postmaster states that the present flow of Christmas cards is running about the same as last year, but the mailing of Christmas gifts is lagging somewhat. He suggests that all gift parcels to most distant points be sent by Air Mail from now on. Speaking about Christmas gift packages, the Postmaster said, "I cannot emphasize too strongly the vital need for packing and wrapping your Christmas gifts securely. Pack all gifts in sturdy cartons, wran them with heavy paper, and tie them securely with strong cord. It is sometimes hard to understand why people will be so careless about putting valuable Christmas gifts in flimsy boxes and loosely wrapped packages. Many of these poorly wrapped gifts simply cannot stand the necessary handling and thus cause much delay and disappointment all around. The postmaster further suggested that is is best to print the recipient's full name, street address, city, ZIP CODE number and state on all mailing labels, making sure to include an extra label inside your gift packages. If you'll send all your Christmas cards by First Class mail, using the new five cent Christmas Tree stamps, and include your name and addresses on the envelopes, you'll help your friends to keep their mailing lists up-to-date. Further, you are assured that any cards that cannot be delivered will be re turned to you for corrected ad- resses. If you wish to enclose your Christmas card or letter in your gift package, merely add the appropriate letter postage to the postage for the package itself and indicate the presence of letter or Christmas card in side the package. • The postmaster expressed his thanks for the fine public cooperation to date and said, "If you'll just follow these simple requirements it's sure to be a merrier Christmas for everybody." Don 't mail money In Christ mas gifts or parcels. Use Postal Money Orders or checks. Insure your gift parcels Register 'etters of real value. Parcels containing delicate gifts must be marked "FRAG 1LE", and foodstuffs should be marked "PERISHABLE" It they are subject to spoilage. Be sure your Christmas card and gift mailln? lists are up-to- date. Wrap your Christmas gifts securley. Address your cards and gift* legibly and correctly. Use complete address - in- luding street number, rural .oute of post office box number. Be sure that the name of the street is complete with avenue, parkway, or drive. Avoid abbreviation of street and state names. Use ZIP CODE numbers wherever possible and be sure to include your ZIP CODE in your return address.
