Both voted not to take part in electing representatives to advise the board of education on desegregation for the city's schools. Previously, the Ashburn Civic association had sent Dr. Edward Welling, desegregation project manager for the city schools, an endorsement letter over the signatures of Henry Coppolillo, treasurer, and Mrs. Margaret Sullivan, president of the Eberhart PTA Joyce Winter, association president, said the endorsement was negated by Monday's action music at 3:30 p.m Sunday, Apnl 3, in the gym, 3130 W, 87th st.

Joseph Cronin." The Ashburn association, which opposes desegregation, had backed both Cop- pohllo and Sullivan in an attempt to get a representation of their views in the committee. Winter said, however, that even if they were selected to serve on the board, their opinions would not come to the surface rn Garfield Civic league voted to take the same stand as that decided by Dist 15 leaders who met last week at Bogan High school. The South council, which includes representatives from only part of the Southwest Side, has refused to participate in the formation of the citywide committee because it claims guideh- ness for election to the committee exclude anyone who is against desegregation. However, Dr. Welling said last week" the council misinterpreted the guidelines "Those who are opposed to desegregation have an interest equal to any who support it," Welling said. Welling added that persons opposed to desegregation "should be heard on that." Meyers votes for death penalty Ashburn Civic hits Crosstown plan Ashburn Civic association Monday night re-affirmed its oppoisition to Mayor Bilandic's Crosstown expressway plan, stating it would casue cause some residents to leave the Ashburn area "We know it will involve the relocation of residents and businesses in the path *, of the destructive 'concrete ditch'," said Joyce Winter, ' secretary, "when the money should be spent to repair the countless number of potholes on the existing streets and roads " Walter Kiltz, Robert Kellam and Andrew McGann, candidates for 18th Ward alderman appeared for a brief question and answer session, one of the main topics of which was busing. "I don't think they got any specific ideas across," said Winter, who added that both Kiltz and McGann agreed to represent the Asburn association at today's board of education meeting. "That's been one of the main problems," she conti nued. "We never have anyone down there (board of education) to help us " Winter reported that 225 new families have joined the civic group since the start of this year's membership drive. State Rep. J. Theodore Meyer (R-28th) has voted to restore the death penalty in Illinois. "This was a very difficult decision for me to make," Meyer said. "However, the rising statistic for premeditated murders--multiple killings, killings of policemen and firemen on duty and contract killings--clearly underscored a need to implement a deterrent for these crimes." The legislation, according to Meyer, would seek the death penalty for murder resulting from a contract killing; during a hijacking, and occuring in the course of a robbery, kidnapping, rape or other felony. Persons convicted of murdering a peace officer or fireman in the course of official duties; an employe of a state or local correctional faility; inmates or other persons legally inside a prison, and a witness who testified or presented evidence against them in a previous case are also subject to this bill. In addition, the death penalty could be imposed on a person who has been convicted of murdering two or more individuals and is serving or subject to a prison sentence. * Ideas Unlimited * * ANNOUNCES A NEW LOCATION!
