L. 4W 8 PAGES MAILED AND DISTRIBUTED WEEKLY 8c Per CavT Wiitners At Legion Party Tollway Planned at Route 47 A large number of people from all of McHenry County and the surrounding counties atended a tollway meeting called for last Thurs¬ day. Oct. 26, at the VUIage Hall in Huntley. Many of the people present wore members of the McHenry County Board of Supervisors. Conduct- mg the meeting was Mr. Harley Mackeben, chairman of the Board; Wilpault Brill, mayor of Huntley; and Emest Bohn, Dorr township supervisor, from Woodstock. In 1959 tho Board of Supervis¬ ors asked for a tollway entrance on Route 47. At that tune the tollway commission stated that a survey of traffic would have to be made before an entrance could bo considered. Somehow this traf¬ fic surve>' was never made. Mr. Mackeben said that originally when the tollway was laid out, an cntranre was planned for Route 47. Ilowe\cr. duo to an error when the original plans were drawn up, Routo 47 did not get an entrance. Mr. Mackeben went on to say tha' a tollwa^• entrance at Route 47 would be beneficial to the en- firt county. At the present, Mr. Mackeben said that it would be possible to get a tollway entrance on Route 47, but the people of this area must express a desire in or¬ der for this to come al)out. Mr. Mackeben also said that Huntley and the entire McHenry County area must be behind this program 1(X) per cent, and that it would be good if everyone signed the peti¬ tions. Volunteers from the audience offered to circulate the petitions, and in one week's time, get them filled out and turned back- to Mr. Mackel)en. The petition reads as follows: "We. the undersigned, being resi¬ dents of tho County of McHenrj' and State of Illinois, do petition the ILLINOIS TOLLWAY COjk- MISSION to construct an en¬ trance to the NORTHWEST TOLL HIGHWAY at its intersection with Illinois State Route No. 47 for CONTINl'ED ON PAGE 6 TOLLWAY . . . NeM^ Machine For Music Dept. By ROGER A. PERLEY Tho Huntley Schools Music De¬ partment has purchased, and re¬ ceived, a new teaching machine called the DYNALEVEL as manu¬ factured by the Conn Instrument Company.

Gahan The gate receipts for the three home football games totaled $663.- .5(X--average $221.17 per game. —Discounting expenses^officials, men workers, lights usage, etc.— the average net profit per game was a little over $150. Next year it is planned to have an eight game schedule, so we should have a "Pto receipt of around $750 to $1,000. This will speed up the pay¬ ing for the lights considerably. Then when they are paid for, the fn"tKaii receint<; together with the basketball receipts vidll easily pay for the entire sports program.
