Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, Sept. 11, 1972 A-3 Public hearing scheduled on downstate ambulance setup The governor warms up Gov. Richard B. Ogilvic signs an autograph 1'or a fan while supporters huddle around to shake his hand. Ogilvie was honored at an East Alton brunch before his trip to Belleville for a fund-raising dinner with Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York. The gathering at East Alton was urged to meet with "first family" instead of concentrating on the one politician. The brunch was sponsored by the Citizens for the Re-Election of the Governor. Ogilvie turns on charm Hot air balloon went up from Marquette Park Ski Lift area Saturday evening, carrying Tom Gable of Eureka, Mo., and Drew Caplan, 18, of Ladue, Mo. One of several flights Saturday and Sunday, this one went up over the ski area 2,500 feet out over the river and lauded next to a bean field in Calhoun Comity. Other flights this weekend were made by Caplan's mother, a housewife and one of nine woman balloon pilots in the country. By EARL MAUCKER Telegraph Staff Writer Although Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie has been accused of being "withdrawn," and "not one of the boys," such was not the case Sunday during a brunch in East Alton where the governor turned on the charm and made an unmistakable effort to mix and mingle. Ogilvie. at a brunch in his honor at Lewis & Clark Restaurant, greeted each of the some 400 supporters personally while flash bulbs popped and smiles and handshakes dominated, instead of political rhetoric. There were no formal speeches, no surprise announcements, no press conferences and no slams against opponents He made it clear that that's the way he wanted it. Attending the branch with Ogilvie were his wife and 17- year-old daughter. Supporters were urged to meet the governor and his family to discover "the human being" that heads the state govern- m e n t rather than the politician who builds roads, raises taxes and fights the state legislature. Ogilvie's stop in East Alton was just one in a series of d o w n - s t a t e Sunday camp a i g n i n g . Following the brunch, he left for Belleville for a fund raising dinner where he was joined by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York. "I bet I will shake 10,000 hands today," Gov. Ogilvie emphasized "Today it is strictly campaigning and totally social." Ogilvie supporters lined up to shake his hand while a staff photographer aggressively snapped pictures of each handshake. How all the photos will ever be sorted and distributed is a question unanswered, but it looked good and the people loved it. Even a Telegraph photographer was swamped with requests to take pictures. "Take my picture with the governor and don't forget my wife," came one request. "Take a picture of me taking a picture of the governor," another begged. A state legislative subcommittee seeking to head off the growing crisis in downstate ambulance service will hold a public hearing in Greenville Oct. 4 at 10:30 a.m., a spokesman for the subcommittee said today.
