2 ~ Thurs.. June 27, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Makes for responsible action Committee bills seen as legislative advance By DE VAN L. SHUMWAY United Press International SACRAMENTO (UPI) - Two leading California legislators have come up with an idea they believe will greatly aid the legis lalive process. The plan: committee bills. Assembly Speaker Jesse .M. Un ruh, D-IngleHood. was the first to mention such a plan publicly. A newsman pointed out at one of the weekly "Hughie-Jesse" news conferences that bills were being rushed through committees at a fast pace, without much chance to study them carefully. He asked Unruh if he felt this was a good idea. Own Bill The speaker answered that he did not — and suggested a change where the bills would go into a committee and be combined with others to enable the committee to come out with its own bill. Under the present system used in California and most other states bills are introduced by individual legislators — about 3,500 in California during the 1963 session — and carried throughout by them through committees and chambers of both legislative houses. Generally, a bill either stands or falls on its content as suggested by the legislator who introduced it. The committee makes some changes but the bill still belongs to the member and he can drop it if he doesn't like what's done to it. Both houses have deadlines for committee action. And on deadline day, scores and perhaps hundreds of bills arc acted upon suddenly. Bad Bills get Through Many old timers around the Legislature claim this is the best possible way to get a bad bill through because the committees simply do not have time to give each measure the attention it should have. . /\nd during the final hectic days the bills are shoved from committees to the floor and off the floor to the other chamber at a fast and furious pace. Sometimes the clip reaches nearly a bill a minute. Nobody really has time to know what's going on. The other legislator with the same idea is veteran Sen. Randolph Collier, D-Yreka, and he's takmg a move to put it mto effect. Collier's idea resembles Unruh's but he has spelled it out in a little more detail. The plan would call for changing the entire legislative s>-stem in California, including the dates and lengths of sessions. At the present tune, the lawmakers hold a si.\-month general session in odd-numbered years where they can take up any subject they wish. In even-numbered years, they hold a 30-day budget session. It's limited to the spending program plus whatever special items the governor allows the lawmakers to consider. Favors Change Collier would change all this. In the first place he wants the lawmakers to have general sessions every year. They would meet for 30 days to have bills introduced, then recess for 30 days for committees to start their work. Then they would come back and start passing bills. In addition, any bill introduced would have a two-year life, (at present the bills die when the legislature adjourns.) Then committees could study them between sessions. This would allow the committees to find out all that's necessary about an individual bill, what it really does and how far reaching its effect. Then the committee would take all the bills on one subject and combine them, if necessary, into a committee bill, probably carried on the floor by the com mittee chairman. This would avoid the last-mm- ute rush where bills are slammed through without the thorough screening they should have. But veteran newsmen around the state capitol aren't certaui they like the proposals. "It would lead to nothing but e.xecutive sessions by the com mittees," said one. "We'd never find out what was going on around here." HIthy word list stirs furor GOP congressmen differ witli Wirtz (Continued from Page 1) ect or program that results in discrimination. The labor secretary said a special effort was being made to get more Negroes working on federal construction sites in craftsmen's jobs. Surveys of 47 major projects show that Negroes usualy held laborers' jobs on construction sites built with federal funds, Wirtz said. Of 7,795 workers on the sites, 1,399 were Negroes and all but 316 were laborers. The skilled journeymen included 5,658 whites and 300 Negroes, he said. Wirtz said 10 per cent of Negroes in the labor force were unemployed compared with half that ratio for whites. This results partly because Negroes have fewer skills and are easily displaced by automation advances, he noted. The most basic cause of Negro joblessness, however, is the present shortage of jobs in the economy for all workers, the labor secretary said. "It will be a hollow victory if we get the "whites only' signs down, only to find 'no vacancies' signs bdiind them," he said. Another cause of Negro woes is "unquestionably" their less adequate preparation and training for better jobs, he added. A third reason he listed as the "harsh, ugly fact of discrimination."

"There is something false about people who compile lists of dirty words m the name of morality," be said angrily. "I am shocked and angered by what happened to her," Braden i said in a letter to members of {the legislature. "I write to you directly because I have heard that other children in California I are being e.\posed to similar lists jof pornographic words through a well-organized campaign." "The filthy handbill handed my daughter informed her that members of the state Board of Education backed the use in our school libraries" of the dictionarj', Braden said. But he added that the board has not taken a stand directly on the dictionary or any other book but believes that "state officials- elective or appointive—should not tell these local school officials what they must not choose. "To do so is to begin the dreary and unending process of censorship," said Braden. In New York, a spokesman for the Thomas Y. Crowell Company, which published the dictionary in I960, cited favorable reviews that the book received in the New York Times. After terming the California dispute a "political matter," he said, "there are certain ultra conservative groups that have discovered the book after three years. I wonder if they also discovered the dirty words in Shakespeare after 300 years." SACRAJIENTO (UPI) — Two copies of the controversial "Dictionary' of American Slang" were available for high school students today in the California State Library, a branch of Dr. Ma.x Rafferty's state Department of Education. Rafferty, the superintendent of public instruction, has said that the book could conceivably be used as "a practicing handbook of sexual perversion" and has urged that it be removed from public school library shelves. However, he said Wednesday that while he knew the book was in the state library he has never asked the slate librarian to keep it away from students. The librarian, Mrs. Carma R. Leigh, said that "very few" high school students use the state library, but that the dictionary "would be available if a high school student asked for it." The state library became a division in the Department of Education about 35 years ago. Although Rafferty heads the department, the librarian is appomted by the governor. When asked why he had not attempted to restrict the book within the state library, Rafferty said, "I'm not in the business of throwing my weight around." Mrs. Leigh disclosed that the library had only one copy of the book for its reference shelves until last month, when the furor started. The libraary bought the second copy, she explained, because so many state officials and others wanted to borrow and read it.

State St. Downtown Redlands JkninmSIIO ft/ft shoe stores in the West By GAY PAULEY UPI Wonwn'i Editor NEW YORK (UPI) — Frances Langford has found that the memories of World War II are long, long memories. "Do they still know me?" she said. "My goodness yes. I think almost everj- cab driver in the country was overseas... "It seems I never get into a taxi but what the driver turns around and says, "Hey. you're Frances Langford. I heard you sing in Italy.' " "Or," she said, "they'll mention some other theater of war. They still call me by my first name," said the actress-singer who was known as America's "Sweetheart of the Fightuig Front." For six years she toured with the Bob Hope troupe, flying more than one million miles to entertain sen-ice­ men in almost every war area. "We were contemplating China when the war ended," she said in an interview. "I know it's terrible to say, but in a way we were disappointed we didn't get to go there. Flying and singing for the troops had become a way of life." Today's way of life for Miss Langford is changed muchly. For eight years she has been Mrs. Evinrudc, wife of an industrialist whose company specializes in marine power equipment. She and her husband spend most of their summers on a 118-foot yacht, the "Chanticleer," and in winters operate a Marina and Polj-nesian restaurant at Jensen Beach. Fl., on the Indian river 30 miles north of Palm Beach. Evinrude is chairman of the board of the Outboard Marine Corp. The girl with the mellow voice isn't out of show business. She just is not working as hard at it as she did in the late 1930's, the 19Ws and early 1950's. when she was a top smging star in movies and nightclubs. She does television appearances, an occasional night club engagement, and a recording company (Capitol Records) now has issued a long-playing album of Miss Langford singing some of the oldies—"I Got It Bad." "Speak Low. and "How Deep Is The Ocean." "My husband likes show business better than I do," Miss Langford laughed. "I don't miss the daily grind at all." Said her husband, "my favorite is, 'Love, Your Alagic Spell Is ever>-where?" Sit there, I'll play the record for you." From stereophonic equipment aboard the Chanticleer came the sound of the Langford voice. She has changed little in appearance from her glamour girl days except that, as she said, "I've filled out a little, I guess,'" and her blonde hair is cropped from its long boy bob of 20 years ago to a soft shingle at the back, a bit of wave at the front. "Easy to keep on a boat," she said. Evinrude, a widower, had met the singer when she was appearing at a Milwaukee night club. "It was love at first sight," he said. "But I had to follow her around five or six months to talk her into manning me. She had a whole batch of night club engagements." ccietif MISS JOSEPHINE REAY Society Editor Depressed areas aid passes Senate 65-30 WASHINGTON (UPI) — Overwhelming Senate approval of President Kennedy's aid to depressed areas program brightened prospects today for a "second chance" try in the House. The Senate, after two days of debate. Wednesday passed, 65-30. the bill to increase authorized funds for the Area Redevelopment Agency (ARA) by $455 million over the next two years. The victory margin was two votes more than the 63 senators who \'oted in 1961 to create the agency, which funnels loans and grants into communities afflicted with persistent unemployment Backers hoped the substantial Senate vote of confidence in the much-criticized agency would persuade the House to reverse its earlier rejection of the biU. In a stunning upset, the House defeated the measure, 209-204. two weeks ago. HHFA approves open space land acquisitions WASHINGTON (UPI) — Sen. Clair Engle. D-Calif.. announced today that the Housing and Home Finance Agency of the Urban Renewal Administration had approved se\-eral open space land acquisition grants. Among those were: -4470,491 to the California State Department of Water Resources for acquisition of 2,846 acres of undeveloped land in Southern California for water conservation and redevelopment of recreation areas. The new reservoir and park areas are in Riverside and San Bernardino counties and the grant covers 30 per cent of the total acquisition cost of $1,568,304.
