Currently he is professor of economics, Sangamon State University. Though there has been a constant thread of academic activity and writing through his whole career, there is also a parallel thread of thoroughly practical service in both federal and stale government. Blazers needed for band An ur&t'iit appeal is being sent out. by band directors at Civic Memorial High School for red blazers owned by former band students. The band must borrow or buy about 20 or 30 CMHS band coats before the Friday night football game with <T Fallen at the school in Belhallo. The band provides the halftime show. Officials were informed this week that the company supplying the blazers is more than three weeks behind in its orders, and the CMIIS jackets are not available for Lhe first game. Rich Alexander, assistant band director, says he will gratefully accept the loan of jackets from former players, or sales of the blazers will be arranged, dependent on size needs. Donors or loaners may call the school, Alexander said. LEROV WEHRLE IIo was dire-dor of social planning for the State of Illinois. He served in Laos as deputy dircdor of Ilic United States Air Mission there and later in Vietnam as economic counselor to three successive United States Ambassadors. During this ervice he was in a position to see economic and social policy development in both Springfield and Washington. From this platform of academic knowledge and practical experience of both intimate local and foreign affairs, he will speak on "Our World Tomorrow". Master of ceremonies for the event will be Homer W. Davitz. Rev. Abraham Byrd, Greater St. James Baptist. Church, will give the invocation and benediction. James R. Vance, chapter chairman, will preside at the business meeting. This meeting is open to the p u b 1 i c . Reservations arc available thru the Red Cross Office. Parents of students in special education object to classroom Parents of nine children in a special education program in the Alton school district Monday night told the board of education that their children had been moved to a new room located next to a noisy gymnasium .and as a result the special attention the children neixl is interrupted. The parents also complained that, the move from McKinley to Rufus Eastern cost the children about an hour of class time a day, and school engineer Don Kell said some Alton streets torn up by sewer projects compounded the problem. The childrens' teacher, Mrs. Kay Ovcrath, said the room also was too hot, had broken windows and had chipping wall paint. Mrs. Overath said she had not been consulted about the move. Schools officials admitted the room had not been checked beforehand. One of the students at an informal session after Monday night's school board meeting said the room "is like a warehouse with a basketball court next to it." As a result of the one-hour session, school superintendent Dr. Boyd Mitchell said he would investigate the possibility of finding a new room for the special education students and report to school board president Ronald Mottaz by the end of the week.
