A study of one guch stream is being undertak- «n cooperatively by the Illinois Jjatural History Survey, the Waler Survey, and the University j)f Illinois Department of Civil iJSngineer'ng. ~ Many streams receive both 'domestic sewage and agricultural dra'nage. These conditions drastically change a stream's character as much of the waste sewage material is organic and consumes the stream's oxygen supply. As cities on Illinois' small streams continue to grow, pollution problems become more and more acute from both a health and a recreational standpoint. The study was undertaken to determine the effects of domestic sewage and agricultur* al drainage upon the dissolved oxygen content of a stream. Dissolve oxygen was chosen as a factor to be studied because it is necessary for the survival and maintenance of animal com" munities in streams. Effects of short and long-term oxygen depletion may be illustrated using fish as an example. Fishes generally require moderate amounts of dissolved oxygen to live. Even a brief period of low oxygen may eliminate all fish life In a stream's area. Many fish fond organisms are more tolerant of short 1 o w oxygen periods. However, long periods of low oxygen will eliminate all but the most tolerant food organisms. The resuming lack of fish food organisms can delay the rees- tabllshropnt of a fish population even after dissolved oxygen is available once again in the stream. The cooperative stream study is being made at the Salt Fork River, flowing between Urbana and Homer in the eastern portion of Champaign County, with additional observations on the river's branch arising at Rantoul and joining the Urbana branch at St. Joseph. The study and its results however can be an influencing factor in the study of any and all polluted streams within the state. NOW, I REMEMBER — Two old- timers watch trotting horses try out the track at Jersey County Fairgrounds on opening day Saturday in Jerseyville. Many owners had their horses out to time them and keep them in trim for the coming contests. Entry Days Announced For Greene County Fair Integration Should Be Gained Through Non-Violence: Evers WASHINGTON (AP) - Civil rights leader Charles Evers says he continues to believe in racial integration as a goal for the American Negro and that it should be gained through nonviolence. "Violence won't work any place. Once we lose faith we're through ... We've got to live together and work together as human beings," he said. Evers is field director of the tississippi branch of the Na- onal Association for the Ad- ancement of Colored People. Cubs Sweep Doubleheader CHICAGO (AP) — A missed bunt, a remembered old bit of advice and the perfectly placed hit. From such things come doubleheader victories. The Chicago Cubs used them all to sweep a second straight doubleheader Sunday which left the recently haughty Pittsburgh Pirates shocked in disbelief. The Pirates came to town Friday riding high and strong, determined they weren't going to let St. Louis run away with the National League pennant. They beat the Cubs 44) on Bob Veale's two-hitter to give them 18 victories in 24 games. The Cubs rebounded with 6-1 and 10-2 triumphs Saturday and then all but buried the proud Bucs 5-4 and 4-3 Sunday under circumstances beyond belief. Ernie Banks' grand slam homer in the first game Sunday gave the Cubs a cushion which the Pirates battled long and hard to overcome. Going into the ninth inning the Cubs, held hltless from the first inning on by Dock Ellis, had a 4-2 lead. The first two Pirates went out but four straight singles including run-scoring, pinch hits by Willie Stargell and Manny Jiminez, lifted the Pirates into a tie. Veale was summoned to the mound in the ninth and Jose Arda attempted to get on with a bunt. He failed, took the next pitch for a ball and then hit his first major league homer for Cub triumph. The Pirates grabbed a 2-0 lead on a pair of unearned runs in the third inning of the second game and made it 3-0 in the fourth when Roberto Clemente broke a l-for-26 slump with hii 10th homer. But this time the Cubs pecked away and tied it in the eighth There were two outs in the ninth when relief pitcher Phil Regan the winner in the first game came to bat. Regan slugged Elroy Face's first pitch for a double and then scored the winning run on Don Kessinger's looping single. It was the second time this year that Regan had won both ends of a doubleheader. The las time he did it was with Los An geles against the New York Me and two days later he was trad ed. "When I was with the Dodg ers," related Regan, "J went U] to bat against Face and Coach Jim Gilliam told, nw to be ready on the first pitch. 'He alwaya throws a slider,, for a strike on the first pitch' QUUam told me and I remembered and ready this time." As Began slid into seconc base, Cub Manager Leo Duro cber got his bullpen in action Why? • • • "I thought of sending to pinch runner at first," aajd L f'Then I decided to hell with it I figured all Kes^ger coutf wa* i single infl wbody I n the bench could score from econd with the outfield pulled n "Unless I got the ball between 10 outfielders," said Kessinger, that's the only type of hit that could have scored him from second. A little looper over the •econd baseman's head. It's a great way to go into the .All- tar game." Two days ago the Pirates, were n second place. Now they are ifth. Two days ago the Cubs were ninth and wondering. They're still in ninth place but nly 4% games out of second. The Chicago White Sox also greeted the All-Star break on a victorious note with an llth-in- ing 4-3 triumph over Washing- on. Wayne Causey, who scored the ying run in the eighth, singled lome the winner in the llth after Ken Berry had singled and dvanced to second on a Tommy Davis bunt. Causey scored the tying run in he eighth when Ken McMullen hobbled Duane Josephson's two- iut grounder for an error. French Driver Killed in Race ROUEN, France (AP) - Jo ichlesser, a jovial 40-year-old Frenchman whose whole life re volved around auto racing, became the fourth driver to lose his life this year when his new model Honda crashed and ex >loded hi the Grand Prix o Trance race Sunday. Jim Clark, one of the greates racers of all time, was killed April 7, on the Hockenheim cir cult in Germany. Mike Spence was killed during the Indianapo is trials May 7. Ludovico Scar fiotti, 1963 co-winner at LeMan was killed June 8 while making a reconnaissance run over th Elossfeld Mountain circuit In Germany. Schlesser, a veteran of rallys sports car competitions anc Formula 2 and Formula 3 race in Europe and the Unite States, was making his first try In a Formula 1 race countln for the World Driving Cham plonshlp. He got his ride at the las minute when Dan Gurney o Costa Mesa, Calif., decided tha his Eagle was not ready to return to the Grand Prix circuit. That left a place open in th race for the new V-12 mode RA302 Honda which was enrere in competition for the first time - Schlesser skidded coming ou of a curve, on the track mad slick by rain, and the magnesium bodied ;car. rolled up a embankment and exploded. Jackie Ickx of Belgium wa the winner of the race in a V-l Ferrari. It was the first raajo victory for Icfex, and tine first o the year for Ferrari in a For mula 1 race. His brother Medgar was shot and killed by a sniper several years ago when he held the same NAACP post. "It's wrong for Negroes in this country to become hate- mongers. They killed my brother and they killed my best friend, but I will continue to fight to make Mississippi a better place for both black and white," he said. Evers spoke Sunday on the CBS program, "Face the Nation." He again said he would go to the Democratic National convention in Chicago next month to challenge the regular Mississippi delegation's right to vote on grounds that it discriminates against Negroes. "We're going to put together a true delegation of loyal Democrats, black and white, he said. Evers was elected as a member of the regular Mississippi delegation, but resigned after accusing the party of tokenism in only picking three other Negroes to go to Chicago.

Man Charged With Peace Disturbance JERSEYVILLE - A Jerseyville man forfeited a $500 peace bond and was charged again with distrubing the peace Friday in Circuit Court. Chino "Bob" DeSherlia had been placed under a $500 peace bond June 4 for making threatening and annoying telephone calls to the home of George N. Thomas. The latest charge against the 20-year-old Jerseyville man states that he has continuously made annoying telephone calls to the Thomas home and drives by the home at all hours of the night honking the horn. Thomas is DeSherlia's father- in-law. The case has been continued until Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Roxana Water Plant Closed For Repairs Residents of Roxana and South Roxana may have noticed a drop in water pressure Monday morning as the Roxana water system switched over to the Wood River water system, mayor Kenneth Nail of Roxana said today. The drop in pressure is caused by the gravity system used by Wood R'ver and the pump pressure system used by Roxana which supplies water also to South Roxana. The Roxana water plant will be closed for about four days, Alton's stray dog problem will continue at least until Aug. 1 despite the fact that the city's new dog pound facility has been virtually completed, Mayor Clyde Wiseman said today. The city's temporary holding pound, constructed on the public commons at the end of Oak Street was scheduled for completion last week, but it won't be put into operation for several weeks because the new Madison County dog pound won't be completed until then Madison County is constructing their pound on Rte. 143 four miles east of Edwardsville. During a meeting between Alton and county officials it was established that the county would charge the city $4,000$4,500 per year for use of the county facilities according to Mayor Wiseman, . who addec that any proposed agreement would be subject to approva" by the Alton city council. Wiseman said that the plan would be to take dogs from the city's holding pound over to the county pound once or twice a week depending on the number of dogs collected within the city, Boy Hurt in Fall From Rail Trestle EDWARDSVILLE — A Wood River youth who fell 30 feet from a railroad 1 trestle near Hartford Saturday was report ed in fair condition this morn ing at St. Joseph's Hospital in Alton.

He said that in the event a og is picked up and the owner laims the animal, he could be able for up to four or five dif- erent fees. Those would include: (1) fine for dog running at large in city. (2) License fee if the dog doesn't have current dog license. (3) Boarding fee at city dog pound. (4) Boarding fee at county dog pound (if animal transferred to Edwardsville). Pentagon Plans to Cut 150,000 From Payroll By FRED S, HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — The Defense Department, under trong pressure, to slash spending, is working on plans that could trim more than 150,000 obs from its civilian payroll. Budgeting officials estimate his could save slightly more han $1 billion a year. That is about a third of the $3 billion that Pentagon officials expect they will have to slice rom defense spending this bookkeeping year in response to congressional orders. But the Pentagon has been given no time limit for cutting ts civilian work force, now to aling some 1.2 million men and >vomen in virtually every state and overseas. Presumably, the process could extend into the next fiscal year. There are no indications of wholesale firings. The Pentagon dopes' to accomplish its objec live mainly through attrition. This is in line with the appar ent intent of Congress which ruled recently that federal agen Man Charged With Traffic Violation JERSKYVILLE — Harold D Curry, 23, of 118 South 13th St. Wood River, was arrested by Illinois State Trooper Francis Neubauer at 10:40 p.m. Saturday and charged with reckless driving. He was released from the Jersey County jail today on bond and is scheduled to appear in court Aug 9. cies may fill no more than 75 er cent of job vacancies creat- d by the resignation, retirement, death or removal of full time employees. What this all amonuts to is a belt-tightening, a partial freeze, and fewer opportunities for people looking for jobs with the armed services or defense agency. Since studies are now under way, officials said they cannot ell what the impact will be oa he various states and defense nstallations within those states. Burglars Loot Home At Mitchell EDWARDSVILLE — several dozen items — including seven guns — were reported stolen from a Mitchell home over the weekend. Mrs. Lawrence Murray, of 120 Springfield, Mitchell, reported the burglary at her home to the Madison County sheriff's office at 6:15 p.m. Sunday. The sheriff's office said the rear door of the home was forced open while the home was vacant between 6 a.m. Saturday and 6 p.m. Sunday. The stolen items included 4 shotguns, 3 rifles, 3 radios, a hunting knife, a shoebox full of shells, a box of fishing flies, a reel, a bow, an electric shaver, assorted jewelry, a leather travel bag, a tackle box, 2 electric drills, 2 sets of socket wrenches, a wood plane and a brace and bit. the mayor said, while a new retention and storage tank, along with revision to the aeration filtering system, are tied into the Roxana system. The plant has to be closed while the new facilities a,rp hooked up. The new tank is a supplement to the storage tanks from the aeration facilities, while the revisions to the filters is the installation of coke trays in the aeration system in an effort to eliminate the iron and manga nese in the water.
