DEAN, 67, Dtan Foods C:i. executive and long-time civic and Republican leader, died Wedne'dny night in his home at 15 Car.tcrbtrry I.ane, Oak Brook. .Mr. D?an, who lived on a 40-acre farm in t'lc v.i'.age, served as chair- muii of t!ie Oak Brook Plan Com¬ mission from 1959 to 1967 and as vill-ige prrsidort from 1967 to 1973. He was tho bon of Sam E. Dean, founder cf Dean MUk Co., 3600 N. Rive- Rd., Franklin Park. He took over aftei- his f'lthor's A^zXh in 1946. ard. as chairman of the company, hiter Dean Food>, he saw it diversi- ry and cxjvinl to a $150 million l-u=:ness. Mr. Dean stepped down as chair- ir,;-,n of tkc food company in 1969 "t) uive younger cNccutives a chance to u'ilize their energies," but re- mairrd to serve on a new executive committee. He was active in Repubican poli¬ tics, and, while a student at the University of Illinois in 1930, was instrumental in founding the lUlnoLs Ycung Republican Organization. In 1963, Mr. Dean was elected president of tho Illinois State Cham¬ ber of Ccmmei-ce. One of his major efforts was to get fellow business¬ men to take an active role in public affair?, a theme he relteiiated thru- out his year as chamber president. In J972 he was named chairman of an Illinois Political Action Com¬ mittee to support state legislative candidates who understood the biisi- iir'=s problems. Mr, Dean is siu-vived by his wi¬ dow, Dorothy; a son, John Allan; a daughter, Mrs. Dixie Dean Sparks; a brother, Howard M., and two sis- tore, Mrs. Pati-icia Rockwood and Mrs.. Helen Crumhairs, wife of Harold F. Gi-umhaus, chairman of the executive committee of Tribune Company and former publisher Of Tlie Tribune. The family asked that contribu¬ tions to the memory of Mn.

Ill Bell Ask For Info Charge Illinois Bell Telephone Company said today that most of the rate in¬ crease it is seeking would apply to "pay as you use" sendees and those which arc option.il. Only about 10 per cent of t':-,e proposed changes would affect basic rates, according to James E. 0.>n, president of liUncis Bell. The company last week announced its intention fo file for new rate adjustments after the Illinois Com¬ merce Commission denied the"com¬ pany's cost-efficiency adjustment plan — a uniqtic pricing concept that would ^ffO^•ide for small monthly decreases or Incre.-ses in phone bills. Olson outlif.^Jd detidls of the re¬ quest, which tile company is filing today with the Illinois Commerce Commission: "Fir.st, we seek approval to raise rates by some S65 million a year to pay for costs already known, com¬ mitted and unavoidable for 1975 — among them the additional wage bin coming due in our labar con¬ tracts. "Second, we seek additional rate relief to get us to a level of earn¬ ings adequate in today's economy to continue to ]jrovide reliable ser¬ vice. Our best eslima'e today is that an additional $113 million in new revenues will be required. "Our overall rjroposal of $178 mil¬ lion reflects that estimate. "But let me r.dd that the cost and revenue estimates will be replaced later with actual current results so that the Commis.sion has updated in. formation on which to t>ase its de¬ cision." Included In the proposals are a 20-eent charge for Directory As¬ sistance calls over three per month, timing local calls in Chicago and increasing local coin phone calls to 20 cents. Citing the escalating cost of pro¬ viding reliable telephone service since current rates went into effect January 1, 1974, Olson a-sserted that in most recent years Illinois Bell has been iM-essed to the wall by inflation, "In five of the last six years,'" he sadd, "wc have been unable to maintain the level of earnings which Conthiued on Page Two RATE CHARGE First Draft Of Zoning Ordinance Presented Mrs. Lynn Hadlock, Chairman (,f the County Zoning Committee presented the first draft of the new Zoning Ordinance. She asked the member of tlie Board ;md any other groups to "look it over" and to make comments stilting tho number of the para¬ graph being referred to.

There will be maps In the last draft, which are not yet included in the red draft Mrs. Hadlock stressed the fact that the County has needed a re¬ vised zoning ordinance for 11 years She said that the Bar As¬ sociation had made several sucii requests. She called for a strict ordinance, stating that the Coun¬ ty zoning laws have been too lenient, therefore the sutjdividers and builders have played the County against the City and when the City wiil not give them th;? zoning they want in a pre- annexation ageement, they to ts the County. She advoctaed an ordinance, not only as strict as the City ordinance, but stricter. Planned unit developments. Uke the Cities have were requested by Mrs Hadlock The books will cost an Individ¬ ual $6,50, which Mrs. Hadlock said is the actual cost of the document.
