June 20.—One thousand years from now someone may want to dig underneath the Pershing Square underground garage and find out wha* life was like in Los Angeles in 195]. !

By AnaclaUd Pr«ii SPRINGFIELD. 111., June 20 — The Illinois Senate today approved amending the revenue article of the State Constitution, putting the question up to voters next year. The proposed amendment, endorsed 43-0. would allow classification of property for taxation purposes. It would expressly bar a graduated income tax. The recommended change in the 1870 state basic charter was the second to clear the present legislative session. The House yesterday completed action on a proposed amendment to put a referendum whether to rescind the charter restriction against i-eelcction of sheriffs and county treasurers. The vote w^as 106 to 6. This proposal also would allow the legislature to fix salaries of county officers. Bank Sluu-eholder Liability A third amendment apparently headed for the November, 1952, general election ballot would remove double liability from state bank shareholders. The House okayed it 135 to 1 yesterday. The Senate still must act. The Constitution now requires a shareholder, when a state bank goes broke, to surrender not only his stock but cash or assets in an equal amount if needed to meet creditors' claims. Two weeks ago, the House favored an amendment allowing classification of property for taxation purposes, prohibited by present basic charter provisions. For adoption in a referendum, any of these amendments would require a two thirds favorable majority of persons balloting on the proposition. The Senate has okayed and referred to the House proposed amendments for an annual legislative session, instead of one every two years, and for legislative reapportionment. The reapportionment plan, which would provide eight more Assembly seats for Chicago and Cook county, is similar to one already turned down by the House. The Assembly may submit to voters at one time amendments to only tnree articles of the Constitution, which means that not all those which have skipped preliminary legislative hurdles can win final approval.
