WOOD RIVER, Jan. 17. — The Social Planning Council should be working with all groups to solve today's youth crime wave, the worst in history, Miss Martha Connole, East St. Louis attorney, told her listeners at the annual meeting of the Wood River Social Planning Council, a Red Feather Agency, at the Roundhouse, Monday evening. Miss Connole stated that the community has replaced the home in moulding of youth of today. The community must accept the responsibility of school and religious training as well as constructive entertainment. She explained there is a great need for educated and trained leaders; however, a respected citizen in the community can do more good than highly paid social workers. Because of her interest in children Miss Connole has long been known for her fair and outspoken remarks on problems which contribute to delinquency. Her forcefulness and interest was recognized by Gov. Green when in 1941 he appointed her as one of the'five lay members to serve on the Illinois State Training School for Boys and Youthful Offender's Commission. The same year she also was appointed one of the members of the advisory board for the division of youth anri community service, a' position which she still holds and in which she is vitally interested.

Wood River Council Defers Action on City Employees WOOD RIVER, Jan. 17 — Action on vacations, leaves of absence and disability benefits for city employes, as well as an ordinance on trailer camps, was deferred by city officials until next Council meeting. Presented for the first time Monday, city officials felt they should have time to consider the proposals before taking definite action. It is expected there will be some revisions made before final acceptance. The resolution on vacations and leaves of absence, which was presented, would benefit full-time city employes or those hired permanently. Under the plan, either one 05 two' weeks of vacation would be given with pay, based on tne 8er * vice accumulated. The leaves granted would not exceeed six months and would be approved for such things as illness, injuries, and death in the immediate family. An ordinance on disabilty benefits, as presented, again would benefit the full-time employe. The amount of benefits would be determined by the length of service of the employe.

Opposition to the making of old Wood river into a cesspool developed after Wilbur F. Stevens, city engineer, reported of meeting earlier Monday with Army Engineers in St. Louis. According to Stevens, the United States Engineers propose building a pump house where the proposed 84-inch sewer will discharge to the river. This pump house will be located and sized to lake suction from the present old Wood river basin, which will act as a reservoir. t Stevens pointed out. several ob- jeotlonable features to such a plan, saying that to use old Wood river as a reservoir would create a health hazard. It also would be objectionable because the pump house and sewer system should be designed to handle the Wood River sewer load without any reservoir being included, Stevens said. As another objection, Stevens said the area south of Ashlock avenue should be held in reserve for future sewage disposal. Call for Drainage Aid Calling for the enlistment of state and federal aid for a drainage program to include Wood River township and Madison County, a resolution was passed by Council members asking for assistance with such a drainage system. The resolution will be drawn and sent to authorities who might be interested in state or national aid, Including senators, representatives, township officials, the highway department, and the Wood River drainage board. Mayor William R. Stoneham said the project is far too great for the individual area to promote. The drainage problem of the area was realized more acutely with the repent .floods and near break of the levee at Wanda. Because the drainage embraces too much territory, Stoneham said such a project should be done collectively. The plan would enlist the aid of all areas including Lincoln Addition, Wanda, and Wood River. The assistance of the Wood River drainage board was offered by an attorney of the board who conferred recently with Stoneham concerning the trouble at the Wanda levee and what could be done to eliminate the matter. Several city officials worked be: fore and following the Jan. 3 Council meeting to help hold the levee at Wanda. Olin Executive Addresses Rotariansat Wood River * WOOD RIVER, Jan. 17.—Label-1 are compiled each year. ing advertising as a vital and effective tool of the sales program, D. C. Cronin, advertising and sales promotion manager for Olln Industries, Inc., discussed the various phases of advertising for the local corporation from the interpretation of an advertising manager at the regular weekly luncheon meeting of the Rotary Club, Monday noon, at the First Presbyterian Church. Cronin named space advertising as the first phase, explaining that the corporation dpes its advertising on a national basis with the bulk of space buying done by an advertising agency. Because the industry has guided seasons, work is done two or three months in advance. Olln's space advertising has Its greatest source in outdoor magazines. Because the company has 120,' 000 dealers and 5000 jobber salesmen, another phase of advertising includes preparation of booklets which are used as promotion In stores where the products are sold.

Most of the publicity involves reaching into the research department for something about the products which is newsworthy. Other phases include two teams of exhibition shooters which go around the country appealing to consumer interest as well as jobbers and dealers; motion pictures which are basically entertaining but have a commercial aspect; and In-plant materials such as retirement plan booklets and welcome booklets. Local advertising centers around East Alton and New Haven, Conn, where the two principal plants of Ihe corporation are located. Cronin named combining an< directing the various divisions o the company as the brass, am munition, etc. divisions, into sales promotion as one of the responsibilities of the advertising department, as well as an analysis of the market, potential sales and other factors. • He was Introduced by Andrew Lessner, program chairman.
