What can I do with the furniture a former tenant left in his apartment? When he handed me the key I assumed he was all moved out. A. When a tenant surrenders possession of an apartment by turning in the key, the landlord can assume that any personal property left behind has been abandoned. The landlord is free to dispose of the property. If a tenant moves out without telling the landlord and without turning in his key, the landlord should be sure of his legal ground before disposing of any property left by the tenant. He may find it advisable to go to court to have the furniture removed through an eviction proceeding. — Illinois State Bar Association.

Break in Water Line Repaired The Bethalto Water Co. said today it will be a day or two before all discoloration in the water is gone, due to a break in a 12-inch main Friday. The break occurred about 11 a.m. in an area just behind Say Mart in Wood River, but was repaired by 8 p.m. The sediment in the line was stirred up, according to Mayor Erwln Plegge, and will take several hours to settle down. The discolored water is main* ly in the Rosewood Heights By JOHN K. 1GLEHART Associated Press Writer SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) Richard B. Ogilvie, Republican candidate for governor, blasted the state Democratic administration today as "a system which condones corruption, inefficiency and failure." Ogilvie issued the blistering attack in a speech prepared for the Republican State Convention. He emphasized in his talk the need for party harmony, after a sometimes bitter four-way fight for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, which he narrowly won. Ogilvie, president of the Cook County Board of Commissioners, charged the Democratic administration eight fields: with failure in crime prevention, road maintainance, state payrolls, finances, education, recreation, prison reform and con- ititutional changes. "Illinois has the highest rate of violent crime of any state in the nation," Ogilvie said. "One person in virtually every family in Illinois is likely to become the victim of a violent crime during a normal life span." Republicans met at the State Armory. During the brief session they were to name 10 at- large delegates to the GOP national convention. Former vice psesident Richard M. Nixon was expected to be the major beneficiary. Heading the delegation will be Republican Sens. Everett M. Dirksen and Charles H. Percy. The other eight delegates expected to be selected are State Rep. Ralph Smith of Alton; Ogilvie; National Committeeman Robert Stuart Jr., of Chicago; National Committeewoman Audrey Peak of Barrington; State GOP Chairman Victor Smith of Robinson; William Fetridge of Chicago; U.S. Rep. Leslie Areiids and Edmund Kucharski, Ogilvie's campaign manager and Cook County treasurer. Supporters of Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller were busily engaged in influencing delegates Friday on behalf of their candidate, but there was little prospect of any great change of opinion. An Associated Press survey shows that Nixon has 34 committed delegates and the other 14 elected at the June 11 primary are uncommitted. No delegate has publicly declared for Rockefeller. William Rentschler of Lake Forest, chairman of the Illinois Committee for Nixon, estimated that Nixon could count on "50 and possibly more delegates" in the 58-member Illinois delegation. was charged with assault and battery, intoxication and disorderly conduct after his wife told police early this morning that he had struck her Alton police arrested Eby at his home.

Rowan . IN THE TELEGRAPH! CARBONDALE, 111. (Special) — To the guy who said nothing is new under the sun. Are you ready for this? A Jewish totem pole. A big schtick. It's standing in the sunshine at Southern Illinois University's Outdoor Laboratory and it has been created by four nice young Jewish boys as a tribute to the 201 h anniversary of Israel. They claim proudly that it is the first Jewish totem pole in the world. They are undoubtedly right. The idea for it started with Ida Stack, activities director for Camp Ben Frankel, a summer program at the Outdoor Laboratory sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Southern Illinois. Each summer the two- week camp at Little Grassy Lake draws children from Jewish families throughout the region. It combines recreation with studies in Hebrew religion and culture. When Mrs. Stack suggested an arts-crafts project for the tribute to Israel, four boys took o*ne look at a traditional Indian totem pole at their ramp, yelled "Kadee- mah!" and took off for the wood pile. The result of their work on an eight-foot ash log might be called Hebrew out of Chinook. Instead of eagles, turtles and other tribal symbols, the Ben Frankel totems include the Star of David, the word. "Israel" in carved Hebrew script, and a crowning sun with a drawing of the seven- branched candelabrum (menorah) that is lighted on the sabbath. The artisans were 13-year- old David Guggenheim of Mt. Vcrnon; Phil Janklow, 15, of East St. Louis; "chief" Mike Handler, 15, Jefferson City, Mo.; and Larry Hose, 14, of Granite City.
