Freeport (III.) Journal-Standar P fl . 10 Wed., July 3, 1968 Budget (Continued from Page One) lations by the Illinois Junior Col lege Board that Highland mus follow if it is to maintain it status as a Class I college. Budget Predetermined Richardson and Rimington both said that the action taken by the board during the yea often predetermines the budge since it is based on the board' decisions. In response to a comment by Borland on increasing salaries again next year, Rimington said that the college could meet ex penses next year but could no' increase its costs without find ing additional revenue. Borland had said that the teachers would probably reques another salary boost in 1969. Increases in revenue coulc come from an increase in the number, of students, resulting in more tuition collected, a raise in the assessed valuation of the college district, and more state aid. Concerned About Spending Chamber of commerce spokesmen expressed concern about spending next year. Donald Jepsen and William Richards pointed out the college could not expect to ask for an increase in its limit on tax levies because the public would not pass such a referendum. Richards said "the board has a strong reason . to reassess some of the programs," in light of the financial condition. Jepsen said the next 24 months should be of major concern to the college since it would be at least that long before Highland could move into its new campus. The move is expected to increase the number of students! CHICAGO (AP)—A wildcat persons daily was badly crip- and decrease at least some of ; strike of city bus and elevated pled.

Pontoon Bridge Replaced By New $20-Million Structure LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) The 135-foot pontoon bridge to Terminal Island, built by the Navy as a temporary structure in 1944, was closed this -week and replaced by a new $20-million bridge 200 feet high. The old span, which rose and fell as much as 25 feet with the tide, carried hundreds of people a day and caused huge traffic jams while traffic was stopped to allow ships to pass. Seven motorists have drowned in the channel since 1944. The pontoon bridge will be sold to the highest bidder by the city of Long Beach. LA Drops P/ans To Draff Better Gun-Control Laws LOS ANGELES (AP) - Plans to draft a gun-control law have been dropped by county supervisors in Los Angeles where Sen. Robert F. Kennedy was shot to death. The supervisors were advised by the county counsel Tuesday that only state or federal legislation could be effective. Supervisor Ernest E. Debs said, "It would be ridiculous for the county and its 77 cities to adopt individual ordinances." Two Illinois Servicemen Die In Vietnam WASHINGTON (AP) - The Defense Department announced Tuesday the deaths of two Illinois servicemen in Vietnam. Killed in action: Army Cpl. Kenneth W. Seidel, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bert W. Seidel, Route 1, Wayne City. Marine Lance Cpl. David W. Yarber, son of Mr. and Mrs Camion W. Yarber, 8341 W. 81st St., Justice. NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The military writer for the Norfolk *edger-Star says an American submarine was damaged severely several months ago in an underwater collision with a Russian submarine. Jack Kestner said Tuesday the report, unconfirmed by the Navy, adds to speculation the missin.g nuclear attack submarine Scorpion might have tangled with one or more Russian subs on a "classified mission" during her ill-fated trip home from the Mediterranean. The Scorpion has been missing more than a month. Kestner quoted "usually reliable sources" in giving his account of the collision. The story did not name either submarine. Undergoing Repairs Kestner said the American sub spent two months at Rota, Spain, undergoing repairs. Nothing was reported of the effect of the collision on the Soviet sub. In Washington, the Navy said, "as in the past, the Navy will not comment on classified operations of its deployed nuclear submarines." Kestner said Soviet subs have been lying in wait off the overseas ports of U.S. Polaris submarines and attempting to follow them on their 60-day underwater patrols.

Service to the West Side was estimated at 50 per cent of normal. The strikers, calling themselves "Concerned Transit Workers," submitted a list of demands Tuesday to James Hill of the Union's Division 241. They complained that Hill refused to deal with the Transit Authority on matters which they described as unsafe equipment, improper scheduling, no sick leave and inadequate insurance and hospitalization plans. Slightly more than 50 per cent of the local's members are Negroes. The union's internal problems came to the fore early Tuesday when a group of 60 bus drivers, mostly Negro, lost a vote on a request to exclude retired dues- paying union members from voting in elections of officers. Hill said the union is bound by international rules to permit dues-paying retired members a voice in union elections. None of the six officers of Hill's local is Negro although Thousands See Flaming Meteorite By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Thousands of people relaxing under warm night skies Tuesday saw a flaming meteorite flash through the darkness for about half a minute. From Vermont and northern New York to Maryland, from the Atlantic Ocean to Ohio, reports came in of a bright, flaming object sailing through the night. Among the spotters were several professional airline pilots. Police, newspapers, radio stations and airports all reported a flood of telephone calls at about 9:30 p.m., minutes after the sightings. Observers said the object moved from east to west, and many people reported seeing a brightly colored tail to the flaming object. Several pilots and rssidents in western Pennsylvania reported "several streaks of light," indicating that the meteor may have broken up by then. vital to this country's defense, Kestner said, U.S. nuclear attack subs have been given assignments aimed at "wiping off" the Soviet pursuit subs. "The 'wiping off assignment can get rough, sometimes amounting to what one officer describes as 'underwater chicken,' with the American and Russian subs set on a collision course, and the 'chicken' turning aside at the last moment," Kestner said. union's executive board. The local has 8,340 members employed by the CTA. Most of the 3,685 retired union members are white. Russ Extended Forecast Northern Illinois — Temperatures Thursday through Monday are expected to average about 7 degrees below the normal highs of 83 to 88 and normal lows of 62 to 66. A little cooler Friday or Saturday and little change in temperatures Sunday and Monday. Precipitation expected to total around one quarter inch in showers Sunday or Monday. 'Presumably this is (Continued from Page One) gator reported we were not over Soviet territory. happened when the unidentified American sub collided with the Russian." Whether the Scorpion was the sub in question can only be conjecture, Kestner said. Eldest Quint In South Africa Dies Tuesday EAST LONDON, South Africa (AP) — Zoleka, the eldest of East London's 2-year-old Tu- kutese quintuplets, died Tuesday shortly after she was admitted to the Frere Hospital with iuspected inflammation of the brain.

"The MIG was flying parallel to us and it fired straight ahead. I felt the best course of action was to follow his command and turned to the right. We descended until we broke through the overcast and the MIGs guided us to the airfield." Others aboard the DC8 reported sighting a second MIG be- 1 hind them.

Some of the troops aboard the plane said they "had kind of a party" during the two days they were held. Upon release by the Soviets, the plane flew to Yokota, 30 miles west of Tokyo.
