(Don Peasiey Photo). The significance of estate plan¬ ning and the vital role a well-drawn will has in planning ahead were among many topics disciussed before members of the McHenry County Manufacturers Association at a sti¬ mulating meeting last week. Wives of members were special guests because h)oth husband and wives are jointly concerned about planning for future handling of their assets and care of the surviving spouse and children. Heading the discusion was Daniel Foley, trust office with the Chicago Title and Trust Company. Foley explained where a trust fits into good estate planning and gave ex¬ amples of how sizable sums can be saved legally through a reduction of taxes with the use of a trust. Mich¬ ael Caldwell, Woostock attorney, assisted Foley with the presentation. In the business session, members appproved plans for the disaster committee lo finalize a one-day Civil Defense-Safety seminar in conjunc¬ tion with the McHenry County Civil Defense director, John Shay, and his department. This committee will meet at once because of the urgency of develop¬ ing mutual aid, civil defense and survivor plans in event of an emer¬ gency, Walter Burmeister, Union Special Machine Company personnel director who heads the initial plan¬ ning, said. Foley told his audience that "none of the benefits that can be yours in good estate planning will come about without a will. If you get nothing else from this presentation. I hope you will be convinced you should see a lawyer, discuss estate planning and have a will drawn for you and youp wife." In a colorful definition, he de- cribed a will as a funnel.

Tbe students were shown the front office of the newspaper and permitted to ask questions concerning reporting and editing. Mr. O'Brien, editor and publisher of the Huntley paper, explained to the students that it was the duty of the reporter to give factual informa¬ tion to his readers. He stated that when covering a meeting a reporter is there to observe and listen. He went on to say that the reporter was not to participate in the meet¬ ing as such and is regarded to not even being there. The class was quite interested if anyone could tell a newspaper what to print. Mr. O'Brien stated that the newspaper could print anything they wairted to. N o one tells him what was to be printed. He- continued tbat if obscene words were used the Post Office could restrict them from, mailing and if the article was sland¬ erous he could be sued. The class was also interested in the procedure wtien cove ring ac¬ cidents. Mr. O'Brien explained that a reporter could go to an accident and take as many pic tures as de¬ sired and observe as much as he wished. He showed the group Mc¬ Henry County, Sheriff Press Pass and an Illinois Press Associatjon Press Card which are used to iden¬ tify reporters when entering an area restricted to the generri public. O'Brien SUted that loually facts are obtained after a reporter re¬ turns to his offit» by phoning the police or sheriff departments. He said most reporters do not talk to tbe police or ambulance attendants present on the scene because these people have duties to perform and ncessary information can be obtain¬ ed later. The story itself is written from these facts along with the re- porters observations. Following the discussion the edi¬ tor showed the group the back shop where the newspaper b actually printed. He, with the help of em¬ ployees, demonstrated to the dasa the various machine worked. In ad¬ dition to the visit, the group toured the office of the Woodstock Sentin- nel.
