There was extensive discussion concerning the section of the newly passed VlU^re Li¬ quor Ordinance which deals with the residency requirements. The village ordinance states that the owner Is given a 90 day period in which to become a resident, after which time if he doesn't comply, his license wil! automatically be revoked. A motion was made by Ackman to iesue licenses to all the ti^jpM- cants, noting however, that the Village Attorney, Mr. Henry Covrtin, should notify any who were not residents after 90 days, that their license w«« invalid. Ernst fitsi said that he felt tliat since one of those present had already owned his tavern for a year and not as yet moved to town, it appeared as though he had no intention of doing so. Board President Brill said tbat from now on it would be in the hands of the Attorney if he did¬ n't estaUish residency within the stated 90 day period. The vote on the motion was: Enstrom yes, Aciunan yes, Olha¬ ber yes, O'Connor yes, Staab yes, Pitai, no. - Edison Company Announcement Commonwealth Bklison Com¬ pany plans to reduce electric ser¬ vice interruptions to the residents of Huntley by installing automa¬ tic switching equipment accord¬ ing to George P. Marcus, District Superintendent. Marcus said, intemiptioni in the Huntley ax«a during the past few years have been primarily caused bf outages of the 34,000 volt transmission line which sup¬ plies the Huntley transformer station. When the transmission line, which originates in iMaren- go incoiT* «nd outage, toe elec¬ tric service to the commiinity of Huntley is interrupted ^iftU the Huntiey tradsformer stiioon is manually switched to tWi emer¬ gency SOUKS) of supply. Outages of the transmission line have been attributed to lightning, hi^h winds, sleet and accidents. Edison engineers are now de- sigming an automatic transmis¬ sion line switch installation to ^ be erected for ihe Himtley trails-' fonner station. This switch will automatically transfer the trans¬ former to the emergency trans¬ mission line when an outage oc¬ curs on the normal supply line. The spaeial nature ot the equip¬ ment win require about six months fw deeign and manufac- torfaic. CaaaU'tctton ia expected to be completed by late this year. Grade School Principal G. L.

These classes will begin on June 19 and end July 28. Classes will be held in the morning^ frotn 9:00 to 12:00. The money to finance this pro¬ ject will be realized from a Fed- $9352.29. Of this figure |1200 will be spent for administration of the program, |3600 for instruc¬ tion, 1660 for pupil transporta¬ tion (|200 of this for salaries) services and |3393.10 for equip¬ ment. Mr. Delaney stated that the program will be detailed, simpli¬ fied, and slow-moving. Word rec¬ ognition skills will be worked on along with the phonetic approach to reading.

ATTBlVTIOHl (Editor's Note: Because of its timely information the foUowhig letter to the editor ia pnbUshed on Ike froat page. May we saggeeti that it be clipped and saved for future reference.) Whoa, fella, whoa. Your editorial of last week needs answering. I wouldn't want anyone to think Huntley is entirely yn- ments, and organizations. This is on exctmple ol hu¬ man nature; how we overlook or forget until a trage¬ dy happens. I probably would have forgotten too—except I'm the one who has donated all this time and energy for the past 7 years as Huntley's Civil Defense Direc¬ tor, attended all the meetings except one, taken all the course. I have all the literature and although we didn't load your paper with it, it's the some informa¬ tion carried by the daily papers. We advanced beyond 1950 arid are up-tO'date more than you and maybe others i«dlize. For ex¬ ample, in 1963 some of us in Huntley received Certifi¬ cates for completing the "Education for Survival" course which was sponsored by the local American Legion Auxiliary. We have five air-raid shelters diosen and ap¬ proved. They are the baseirients of the Lutheran Church, the Catholic Church, Walter Weltzien's building and the facilities of the Huntley school. Since the addition, the American Legion Home has been added to the list. The last time we participated and sounded the alert to test signals was at 10:30 a.m. on the first Tues¬ day of June '66 and for 3 months. This and another minute of short blasts, the signal to take cover. A Director works with the Police and Fire De- Txirtments. Chief Roth and I reviewed Huntley's Civil Defense Program as recent as the fall of '68 when he appeared on a panel discussion at a PTA meeting. Our Fire Department is dne of the best j»ep3red and fasttBst. They continually practice first oda, survival preelection and use df equipment. The McHenry County Sheriff has corresponded with me as recent as 1966 concerning warning center procedures. These few examples are given to prove that Hunt¬ ley still has a defense program in case of enemf attack. However, you are right, there is not a special warning for tornadoes. This is now being discussed £>y cx>unty and state officials. Some are against it for these reasons: People would rely too much oh others to watch; a siren could bring ipeople outdoors to look; the odds of a tornado strikiiig one's area are small so the siren could be ©ventiially ignored as the tor¬ nado watch wominas on rtidio; usually a tornado rONTINUBD ON PAGE TBItW Award Night Set for May 6 Music Awards Night at Hunt¬ ley School has been itet for Sat¬ urday evening, May 6, at 8:00 o'clock.
