WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 1959 FOURTEEN PAGES House Turns Down Boost in Jobless Pay Benefits Measure Previously Given Approval by Missouri Senate Beaten, 69 to 64. JEFFERSON CITY, Apr. 22 (/P)— The Missouri House today refused to increase unemployment compensation benefits from the present maximum of $33 weekly for not more than 26 weeks. The vote killing the Senate-approved measure was 69-64, giving it just 10 Jess than the 79 votes needed for passage. Defeat came after Rep. Wm. M. Turpin (D) of Pike county won adoption for his amendment making the raising of fishing worms an agricultural pursuit and not subject to unemployment compensation laws. It was the only one of eight amendments adopted as sponsors tried to stave off any move to send the bill back to the Senate. The bill would have increased the weekly benefit maximum from the present $33 to $38. It also would have permitted payments for up to 39 weeks instead of the present top of 26 weeks if unemployment in Missouri should exceed 6 per cent of the total force for six consecutive weeks. Turpin, a lawyer, said he represented a worm raiser in his county who sold millions of the wigglers each year to fisherman. Each year, he said, he had to argue with the employment security division to prove that his client was engaged in agriculture and not industry. His amendment was adopted 6557. Then sponsors asked for passage of the bill but the house killed it instead. Organized labor representatives (Continued on Page 10.)

SCRUBY HARDWARE TO HAVE OPEN HOUSE After a comprehensive remodeling program which has taken about two months, the Scruby hardware siore, formerly Bradley's, will officially open tomorrow. An open house celebration has been planned for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The firm will give away door prizes, and will have gifts for • all children. Free coffee and doughnuts will be served. Demonstrations by the Skelgas Appliance and Pittsburg Paint companies have also been planned.

The interior has been painted in bright colors and peg board lines the walls. It will be operated as a Keen-Kutter associate store selling hardware and a complete line of giftware. After 12 years in partnership with Belmont Bradley and under his name, the store will resume the Scruby name under which it was orginated in 1893.

Plans of the Chillicothe R-2 Board of Education for a junior high building and additional high school facilities gained the unanimous approval of a group of some 30 Chillicothe citizens who met i i with the board last night. A result of the meeting was the formation of a Citizens Advisory Committee to assist the board and to take the message of school needs to all of the people in the district. Officers of the committee, elected last night, are Ted Barnes, chairman; Atty. Ronald L. Somerville, vice-chairman, and Rex Smith, secretary. The group heard R. E. Houston, superintendent of schools, explain the problems created at the high school and junior high level by a steadily increasing school popula- "ttd'n,' the recommendation of the board as to what should be done to remedy the situation, and the approximate cost and method of financing the proposed project. Those present agreed without exception that the board had arrived at a sensible, practical and economical plan and board members were commended for their efforts and study over a period of several years. The proposal, in brief, is to construct a new building immediately east of the high school building. One portion of the new structure would include a band room, vocal room, girls physical education room and a multi-purpose room which would serve as the school cafeteria. The other portion would contain 16 classrooms for 7th and 8th grade pupils. Cost of the project is estimated at between $500,000 and $550,000, Houston said, and the plan has been approved by the state. Residents of the school district will be asked to vote bonds to finance the expansion program. The board has not as yet set a date for the election but it likely will be held late in May. Board members, Houston said, feel the expansion program can be financed on a 25-cent levy. Chillicothe's total school levy still would be less than most towns of its size in Missouri, he added. The proposed project would serve a two-fold purpose as far as adequacy of classroom space is concerned, Houston said. It would alleviate an over-crowded condition which already exists at the high school and it would provide sorely needed classroom facilities for the seventh and eighth grades. The new structure would release five high school rooms and six rooms in the elementary buildings. In pointing to the growing school enrollment here, Houston said that while there are 125 in this year's senior class, the flrst six grades average 185 pupils each and the trend continues upward on a gradual basis. "It won't be long until the classes will average 200 or more," Houston said. A suggestion by the state that the local board purchase 15 to 20 acres at the edge of town for a new high school site was thought by the board to be- economically unsound, Houston said, because of the tremendous cost which would be involved and also because of the duplication of facilities which would be eliminated by the board's proposed project. Those who attended last night's meeting agreed. Kirk Winkelmeyer, president of the board, presided at the meeting. Proposes Bill fo Protect Oppressed Union Members Measures Needed to Curb Abuses by Hoodlums. Says Sen. McClellan. WASHINGTON, April 22. (/F)— Contending some workers need more protection within their labor unions, Sen. John L. McClellftn <D- Ark) proposed today what he called a labor bill of rights. He offered his proposal us nn amendment to the Kennedy Labor Regulation bill, which survived intact its flrst two floor tests Tuesday. In a prepared speech, McClellan said the Kennedy bill "does not adequately meet the needs ol union members for the proeectlon of their rights. It does not afford adequate sanctuary to the exploited and oppressed." Urging passage of an effective bill, he said the "invasion of unionism by thugs and hoodlums has gone much further and is more extensive than you think." McClellan, chairman of the Senate Labor-Management committee, proposed that labor unions be required to write into their constitutions and by-laws a series of provisions designed to assure the rights of individual members. It was the flrst of a series of amendments he said he will propose in an effort to cure abuses of union power his committee has uncovered.

Family records have it that his great-grandfather was Capt. James Cook, the famed English explorer who discovered the Hawaiian islands. Ed* Cook was l>orn at Stokes Mound in Carroll Counly and was the son of John Charles Cook, who died July 15, 1938, near Hammon, Okla. His father, who was born in Newfoundland in 1842, served with th« 13th Wisconsin Infantry in the Civil War, traveled by ox team to Missouri and in 1889 made the run into Oklahoma. In his last year, he traveled to Gettysburg, Pa., to attend a reunion for veterans of the Civil Wai. Captain Cook (1728-1779) made three long voyages into the Pacific on missions of both exploration and astronomy. His 1768-1771 voyage found him on otaheite (Tahiti) making astronomical observations on the passage of the planet Venus across the sun's surface, for one part. He found that New Zealand consisted of two main islands. In 1772-75 he completed discoveries in the southern hemisphere and made three attempts to reach the South Pole. His last voyage was 171679,* and he visited the west coasts of Canada and Alaska, passed through the Bering Strait, then went to the Sandwich Islands, as Hawaii became known to the world. On a return for ship repairs, the natives killed him, Samuel A. Ransdell Dies at 67 At One Time He Was Coach at Local High School. Samuel A.
