Burton, against Harry Eyer. Burton alleges in the suit that on June 26,1966, he was on the premises of the defendant at the defendant's invitation. The defendant was owner of a garden tractor with a mower attachment. Burton alleges that the garden tractor and mower was in an unsafe condition and unsuitable for mowing weeds and grass. Due to the negligence of the 1e- fendant, the plaintiff alleges he was required to place his hands in the vicinity of the pully belt of said machine in order to operate it. He said Eyer had failed to instruct him as to any other method of operation of the mowing machine. The suit further states that by reason of said negligence and the defective and dangerous condition of the mowing machine, Burton lost the last two phalanges of the index, middle, and ring fingers of the right hand in the pulley belt of the mower and was forced to spend a consider- ble amount of money for medical treatment and that he has been permanently injured from the accident.

The public response has been particularly unenthusiastic in cities with a recent history of racial violence. Indications that a proposed federal gun registration law faces hard sledding in Congress have prompted some cities and counties to action on their own. But so far, such instances of gun control at the local level are few and far between. The Board of City Directors of Pasadena, Calif., home town of Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, accused of assassinating Robert F. Kennedy, turned down a proposal to require registration of guns. A resolution calling for investigation of possible gun control ordinances lost on a tie vote, 3 to 3. In San Antonio, Tex., a city councilman asked for an ordi- nance prohibiting the sale of hand guns to the insane, mentally incompetent, narcotics addicts or convicted felons. The proposal failed for lack of a second after the city attorney expressed doubt that such a law would stand tip in court However, looking ahead to the Republican National Convention in August, the Miami Beach, Fla., City Council adopted an CATCHING UP — Learning about modern teaching aids are two Southwestern High School students attending a Future Teachers of America Institute at Northern Illinois University.

ANDERSON Associated Press Writer SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)Springfield • Mayor Nelson Howarth clashed Friday with the Illinois Crime Investigating Commission for the second time in as many hearings over the question of hearsay testimony. Most of 'the testimony dealt with alleged irregularities in the Sangamon County sheriff's office but Howarth was allowed to make a statement to the committee at his own request. Howarth said he took the CHICKEN DINNERS CROWING Our Menus Include Steak Spaghetti Shrimp Ravioli Chicken Open Sunday at Noon OPEN 7 Days Weekly 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. NOTARY SERVICE ST, CLAIR MARKET Grace St., Godfrey 466-4374 stand because there were "still in the record inferences that I took money." "I want to deny that anybody did anything unlawful with my knowledge or consent," he said. Commission Co-Chairman Lawrence X. Pusateri of Melrose Park told Howarth that he was "not to characterize anybody" when Howarth bgan to speak about Charles Siragusa, the commission's executive director. Pusateri told Howarth to "limit your comments to the truth or falsity of the record." Howarth and Siragusa clashed at the May meeting over testimony that Howarth took money from and did favors for local gamblers. Howarth attempted to relate a story about how slain gambler Merle Hornstein "attempted to get into a grand jury, room." The mayor was shouted down by Pusateri who told him "no more hearsay." Powder Mill Road Will Be Closed 10 Days Powder Mill Eoad will be closed to traffic for about 10 days, beginning Monday, for extensive repairs, it was announced by John Eardley, Wood River Township highway commissioner Eard'ey said the closing of the road ha s been scheduled to coincide with the vacation .shutdown of the Olin plant from July 1-15.

In Chicago, a city gun registration law became effective May 15 and city residents turned 1,211 guns in to police, who planned to melt the weapons into scrap iron. But another 60 persons were sOon arrested for ignoring the ordinance. Los Angeles has a city ord nance against carrying a con. cealed weapon without a police permit.
