Greene makes new image in East Alton East Alton trustee i in i Greene is beginning to shoot j for a new political image. The controversial trustee. I spotlighted in the news because j of his frequent and vocal opposition to programs of mayor Charles Vanpreter. Is now taking a More positive approach. Greene is coming out for something advocating his own project which he describes As a Long Range improvement plan for East Alton. It features proposed enactment of a zoning code for the municipality of some 7.000 population and a minimum standards housing Bill. A i want to counter any impression that i am strictly against things Quot said Greene. A this has never been True. Because i stood against the mayor padding his expense account because i opposed conflicts of interest and tried to expose them to Public View because i opposed the Long established administration at times they have sought to Label me As being strictly against every Greene explained that he has been in favor of projects but i if they Are his projects a no matter what their merits a the administration shunts them aside for political reprisal reasons. A even if by a Miracle i can Frank Keasler and p. G. Greene always Back the Vanpreter administration and in recent memory have never opposed publicly anything the mayor proposed. A the administration wants to keep me strictly on the sidelines said Greene. A mrs. Margaret Pruitt the Village treasurer and sister of the mayor made it Clear to me that i Wasny to supposed to do anything but sit and observe during my first term in office. Since i have been against the administrations policies they have made a Strong Effort to keep Village business a secret from a for example i am on the ordinance committee which administration trustee Frank Keasler Heads. In be never been called to a committee meeting and when a new ordinance is introduced and i am asked to vote upon it i have no idea what is in it except by a Brief scanning just before the actual vote. A they read the ordinances by number and unless you Are on the inside with the administration you done to know exactly what you Are voting for. Just voting by number is dangerous i could end up voting for Greene advocates now a Long Merical or Industrial ventures. The trustee explained that trailers Are already in various locations in East Alton and a zoning Law would not exclude them from their existing Loea tons but the code would control where Mobile Homes could locate in the future. A we need a minimum standards housing ordinance As Alton and other progressive cities have enacted to keep our buildings and Homes from deteriorating a said Greene. A part of East Alton is spotted with rather run Down Homes now and this trend needs to be reversed. The Only Way this can be done is through a minimum standards housing Law. If the Homes Are allowed to deteriorate part of East Alton will end up As a slum. A minimum standards turns. Ing code provides for inspection a. Aula Dressel. Student to Homes and requires that they i Coo a of rvs conference is be kept in reasonably Good Liv i a As a Ija t a lie con ing condition considering ins it into current soc plumbing electrical circuit and1 problems sanitary facilities. Miss Butler a second year Greene proposes that the student from St. Louis said that Mother helps a mrs. Bertels helps Brenda perform another of the exercises thai they Hope will develop brain control patterns needed for the girl to overcome Hie crippling effects of cerebral palsy. Monti planning conference on race Unte Ern who have wine to Brendan a each week will be waiting for the word that there is Hope that Brenda will someday walk and move about like other Normal children. If Brenda has shown any Progress at All a and the residents of the Dorsey area who Are helping the Young girl say she has a the exercises will be continued with the Hope that her muscular functions can be developed. The past two Mouths have not been easy for Brenda or for the family. Brenda had to go on a diet and lose 30 pounds to make the exercises easier. She had to give up listening to the radio and watching television because music tends to relax the brain and the exercises Are designed to Sharpen functions of the brain and create new areas of motor control. Brenda who has had several operations at the Shrin Eros Hospital in , was taken to the Institute for the rehabilitation of the brain injured in Media pa., for the first time in february the director. Or. Glenn Doman examined Brenda Tor two weeks and prescribed the series of exercises on a two month trial basis. When Brenda returns on May 21, if she has made any Progress the series will be continued and intensified. Virtually without muscular functions when the pro Gram began Brenda now can raise herself to her hands and Knees and crawl the length of an eight foot table. Many of the exercises required can be performed with just the assistance of Brendan smother. But a leg exercise requires two persons an exercise needs the assistance of three persons and one exercise pattern requires five persons. A total of 112 persons a week come to the Bertels Home just to help in the program. These include volunteers from the future nurses of Bunker Hill High school the Moro woman a club Church groups and neigh Bors and friends. The Moro woman a club has donated $84 to the Bertels family to help defray any expenses. The Money ordinarily would have gone to sponsor a crippled child to the 1968 a camper ship for crippled children at utile Grassy facility near Carbondale. The club gave the Money to Brenda after it was determined she was not Phy is Colly Able to attend the camper ship program.
