It has been previously reported that per capita library circulation for Freeport is above the national average. Wednesday's meeting included :engthy discussion on parking for library staff members and patrons. Wiman said Wednesday that and board member George VIoran had expressed to the City ouncil traffic committee the desire to see the lot behind the library opened to the public. The lot is now marked for library staff only. Debate ensued on the specifics of the parking situation. Urges Expansion Wiman urged that the board recommend expansion of parking facilities on library grounds behind the building. A motion to recommend consideration of opening the present library lot to one-hour metered parking was defeated with only Moran and Mrs. Jones supporting it. 9 Byron 0.

A motion by Mrs. Louise Neyhart to open the present lot to the public with details on meters or signs to be worked out by the building and grounds committee of the library board was approved. Reading Club Another motion carried, this recommending exploration of more parking on grounds to the west of the present lot. The motion also specifies that the li- brary not lose claim to the area proposed for further parking. Wiman reported on the library's Summer Reading Club for children.

FOR Group Seeks Change Bail Bond Policy Upheld By Officials By DUNCAN BIRDSELL Journal-Standard Reporter, Two Stephenson County officials have defended present bail bond policies challenged recently by members of the Freeport Freedom of Residence Committee. The FOR's "equal justice" committee, headed by Richard Trainor, has asserted that bonds levied here are too high and work undue hardship on poorer persons arrested in the county. State's Atty. Dexter Knowlton disagrees with the opinion saying that bond levies are "not excessive." Under the Illinois court reorganization act of 1967, persons are freed if they can post 10 per cent of the bond set. Ninety per cent of the amount posted will be returned when a case is tried. "The defendant can petition for reduction of bail or a writ of habeas corpus," added Knowlton. New System 'Works Well' "The new system has worked well," comments Circuit Court Judge Wesley A. Eberle. "If bail is relaxed too much, we are endangering the administration of justice. Society must assume some risks in adequate justice." Bail for misdemeanors is set by law, but for felonies there is some latitude. Magistrate William E. Kintzel said the circumstances involving the arrest and number of previous arrests regulate what he will set for bail. "Family circumstances may be a factor in what is proper bail, but it's not a defense," said Kintzel. Illinois criminal code language on amount of bail calls for it to be "sufficient to assure compliance with conditions set forth in the bail bond, not oppressive, commensurate with the nature of the offense charged, considerate of past criminal acts and conduct of the defendant, and considerate of the financial ability of the accused." Defendant Released The court may on occasion release a defendant upon his own recognizance without bond. The action is used sometimes by Judge Eberle in a nonsupport charge, with a case held "open" as long as payments are made. Magistrate Kintzel uses the procedure occasionally. He noted that recognizance bonds for minors are often handled at time of arrest. Under the state code release on recognizance could be used "when from all circumstances the court is of the opinion that the accused will appear as re- quired either before or after conviction." To meet instances where a defendant cannot meet bond the FOR group is establishing a "bond chest" from which the defendant's family can borrow. Shortly before the "equal rights" group was formed in mid-May a situation developed which typified the need for available money. Financial Difficulties Arise Two young Freeport brothers, John Jackson, 20, and Will Jackson, 17, were unable to post $500 bond apiece on arson charges and spent more than three weeks in county jail while information was being accumulated for a preliminary hearing. Their weekly take-home pay of about $160 from factory jobs evaporated over the stretch, and there was some financial "belt tightening" at the Jackson residence, 569 E. Madison St. Along with their father, the two oldest Jackson boys are breadwinners for a family of 12. On May 28 charges against the pair were dismissed because of insufficient evidence. Target for the bond chest is $5,000. A limited campaign to raise funds has brought in $800. Trainor and the "equal rights" committee cochairman, Ocic Haley, are optimistic that the goal can be reached. Trainor explains that contributors to the bond chest will leave money on deposit which is payable back on demand through promissory notes signed by the "equal rights" committee. Interest-free money will be lent to the family of a prisoner unable, to post bond. When the case is heard the bond money must be paid back and the bond fund is replenished. If the bond is forfeited and borrowed funds not returned to the bond chest, the family or individual would probably not be considered in future trouble, Trainor said. The FOR group takes a prompt interest in any case where it feels there might be cause to reduce or drop charges, thus bringing bond fees down to a "workable" level. Bond Lowered In a recent instance, the group got authorities to lower the bond on a man from $27,000 to $1,000 after charges were reduced. The family was able to post the needed $100. The "equal rights" committee now has access to the county jail for consultation with prisoners, under an arrangement made with Sheriff Alvin "Mutt" Stine. "We can see a prisoner at any time to see that his rights are upheld," said Trainor. "We're not there to get statements or serve as his lawyers, but are just a link with the outside world." Trainor said cooperation of Stine in the visitation arrangement has been good. Inmate Hospitalized An early concern was an instance at the end of May when a 17-year-old boy with a chronic type of anemia was arrested and jailed for two days and then required hospitalization when he had a sudden loss of blood internally. The boy spent 10 days at Freeport Memorial Hospital under intensive care, with the bill totaling $615. Trainor said the boy's family is considering a civil suit on the matter. The family physician said the boy has frequent attacks, but is seldom hospitalized. The attending physician said there was no relation to the boy's jailing and the development of an attack, although the boy's parents felt quicker awareness would have resulted if the boy had not been in jail. Support of the "equal justice" group was voiced recently by the Northwestern Illinois Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. Dr. John A. Schu- makcr of Rockford, the president, termed the group's program "highly commendable." Mrs. Guy Edlin STOCKTON — Mrs. Guy (Agnes) Edlin of Stockton died Thursday in Rockford Memo- orial Hospital where she had been transferred from Freeport Memorial Hospital. She was born July 30, 1916, in Sheffield, daughter of William and Isabel Long. Mrs. Edlin was librarian at Elizabeth High School and a member of Holy Cross Catholic Church'in Stockton.
