(AP Wirepholo) Convict earns college degree in less than 2 years CARBONDALE - (Special) — An inmate of the federal penitentiary at Marion. Victor Laurence Taylor, has completed his studies for a bachelor's degree at Southern Illinois University in an amazing 21-month period with near-perfect grades. Taylor, 28-years-old and black, majored in psychology with a minor in Black American Studies. The time required to finish his work compares wth four academic years for normal completion. Taylor was not present when diplomas were handed out at the SIU Summer Commencement held Sept. 1, as regulations prohibited him from leaving the maximum security institution where his work was done. Instead, there will be a special graduaiton ceremony Sept. 29, at the prison, where he will graduate with honors. Walter G. Robinson, Jr., director of the SIU Black American Studies program, said Dean Roger E. Beyler of the SIU Liberal Arts and Sciences will confer the degree. Expected to be present are Warden G. W. Pickett; Glenn Hendrickson, in charge of the prison education program; Norman Myers, assistant to the president of John A. Logan College; David Ehrenfreund, chairman of the SIU department of psychology; and Director Robinson. Robinson said that Taylor, whose home is in Dallas, Texas, will be admitted as a graduate student in psychology at SIU this fall. Taylor, he said, did work at John A. Logan College at Carterville as well as at SIU and took as many as 42 hours in one quarter. His grade average is 4.89. Area weather Area weather — Sunny and warmer today, high 85 to 90.

Comtoit in (lie Alton Area fox over 24 Years ABC TOTAL COMFORT CENTER (FcmwrJy Alton Retried Gas) 466-3462 NORWICH, England (AP) — A new Ice Age is creeping over the Northern Hemisphere, and the rest of this century will grow colder and colder, a British expert on climate has claimed. Prof. Hubert Lamb, director of climate research at the University of East Anglia, had a few comforting thoughts • in an interview Sunday: "The full impact of the new Ice Age will not be upon us for another 10,000 years and even then it will not be as severe as the last grea': glacial period. "We are past the best of the interglacial period whi^h happened between 7,000 and 3,000 years ago," he continued. "Ever since then we have been on a downhill float regarding temperature. There may be a few upward flm. tuations from time to time but these are more than offset by the general downward trend." Lamb said tempei aturos had been slowly dipping for the past 20 years. "We are on a definite downhill course for the next two centuries," he declared. "The last 20 years of this century will be progressively colder. After that the climate may warm up again but only for a short period of decades." Lamb said climate changes come in cycles determined by astronomical and physical factors. He said one main cause Is the amount ol radiation received from the sun. "We know that the behavior of the sun changes at intervals and these changes have their effect," he said. "The distance between the earth and the sun also var'es through the ages as the earth's orbit increases ot decreases its elliptical path FRANKLIN UNION • FREE DELIVERY* FREE SERVICE • PRICE GUARANTEE INCLUDED • WE DO OUR OWN FINANCING BUDGET BALANCER SALE!
