2 - Tuesday, July 16, 1963 Redlands Daily Facts Budget augmentation loses Senate approves part of tax plan SACRAMENTO (UPI) - The state Senate today approved Gov. Edmund G. Brown's $l47.3-million tax reform program minus payroll withholding but Republicans held solidly to apparenUy defeat the administration's $84.9 million budget augmentation bill. On a preliminary test, the ad- ministratiwi was able to muster only 24 of the 27 votes needed to send the money bill to the Assembly, where Republicans also could be expected to vote solidly against it. Sen. Stephen P. Teale. D-West Point, carrying tlie spending program in the upper chamber, asked for a call of the chamber to get absent members to vote. But with 12 Republican votes solidly against the bill, the administration simply did not appear to be able to get enough votes. Three bills in the four-bill tax reform package slipped through on unanimous 37-0 votes but major controversy erupted over Brown's bill to accelerate the bank and corporation tax. On a roll call, the vote to send the bill to the Assembly was 22 to 14. Two Democrats joined 12 Republicans in voting as a bloc against the measure. All the favorable votes were Democrats. As a result. Sen. John F. McCarthy, R-San Rafael GOP senate leader, renewed his threat to hold up the administration's $84.9 million budget augmentation bill. "There will be no budget," said JlcCarthy. He told newsmen the GOP senators had voted unanimously earlier in the day to cast all 12 of their votes against the budget if the bank and corporation billwas approved in its present form. The budget was up for Senate action later today. It needed 27 Senate votes for approval and the Democrats had only 25 of their State asks three year extension SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The state Board of Agriculture Mon day dropped its request to Congress to enact a one-year renewal of the Mexican bracero program, and asked instead for a three-year phase out of the supplemental labor law. The board noted that the phas' ing out of the program would not solve California agriculture's problem of replacing the supplemental harvest workers, but would give time for research to help find replacements. The board has asked Congress to reconsider its defeat of a bill extending the program for two years beyond the current Dec. 31 expiration date, and to extend it for one year. The bill providing for a phasing out period was introduced after the request was made. Who HK 0 6/rfMoy JULY 17 James C. Leomit Robert Hingir Roland Brehm Kyle Smith Daniel F.

Samuel Geddes, D-Napa, whose wife died last week, was absent, and Sen. George Miller, D-Martinez, was ill. The upper chamber beat down, 22-15, an attempt by Sen. Donald L. Grunsky, R - Watsonville, to strike the acceleration feature from the governor's bank and corporation tax speedup bill, leaving only a provision to eliminate in- stalhnent payments. Grunsky accused Broivn of "playing politics" in violation of the state's Constitution by at- temptmg to budget for more than one year. He said this was a "politically dishonest approach" and a "deviation rrom the constitutional mandate." Sen. James A. Cobey, D-Merced, charged Grunsky wth advocatmg "fiscal irresponsibility" and of betraying his own party. "We don't need to plan for only one year ahead," Cobey said. "We need to plan for three, four or five years ahead." Even without the pay-as-you-go tax program. Brown's ta.x reform bills would raise $147.3 milh'on during the current fiscal year to help operate stale government It would come from these sources: Bank and corporation tax ac celeration and installment privi lege end—$81.7 million. Repeal of the installment privilege for personal income taxes, effective Jan. I—$44.6 million. Acceleration of the gross insurance premium tax—$22 million. Transfer of revenue from the surplus line brokers tax from the insurance fund to the general fund—$500,000. (Actually, the total is $640,00, but the administration rounded out the figure to $500,000.) Exemption to Cost $2.5 Million Exemption from any tax persons whose tax bill would amount to less than $5 or families who wouW pay less than $10. This would cost the state $2.5 million a year. All the measures but the tax exemption bill were introduced in the Senate. Assemblyman Nicholas Petris, D-Oakland, introduced the administration ccemption bill in the lower chamber. The Senate measures cleared two committees — Revenue and Taxation and Finance — quickly Monday and were sent to the floor. Of the five bills, the most controversy was created by the bank and corporation tax measure. It cleared the Revenue and Taxation Committee by a narrow 64 vote and the Fmance Commitee with another two-vote margin, 7-5. Sen. Donald Grunsky, R-Watsonville. Revenue and Taxation chairman, led opposition to the measure. He said Brown wanted it only to get through the 1964 national election year without a state tax boost. Withholding Still Alive The withholding tax bill for persona) income, actually defeated in a secret Senate caucus last week by an adverse vote, was "tabled" by the Revenue and Taxation Committee. At first, it appeared the acti(m effectively killed the bill. But the Assembly source said this wasn't necessarily so. He said the plan, probably backed by the administration, called for withholding to be lagged onto the exemption bill for small ta-xpayers m the assonbly. "This is a very popular bM,' said the assemblyman. "It seems like the logical place for with holding." The lawmakers pomted out that the so-called 5 and 10 bill was a tax exemtption and vote against it, even with withholding as a rider, would be a vote against tax exemption." 'It's going to make it difficult to vote against the bill," he said. GARY R. ODEN Oden assigned to Monterey Airman Gary R. Oden, son of Mr. and Mrs. WiUis R.

News anotysis State aid-to- education bill cut$34-niillion SACRAMENTO (UPI) — The governor's aid-to - education bill was $34 million thinner today. It was relieved Monday of its two most controversial features—a countywide school tax on property, and a new formula for consider- mg federal impact funds. The deletions were made by voice vote of the Assembly Ways and Jleans (Committee. The bill's author. Assemblyman Gordon Winton, D-Merced, said he would press for reconsideration v/hen the committee resumes hearings on education bills today. As for the amended version, he told the committee, "In this condition I would not propose to this committee the passage of the bill." Still in the bill was its main money provision—$40 million in additional state general fund aid to local schools this year.

SAN BERNARDINO em mmacE ^FTER OK imn Fair housing bill enforcement funds slashed SACRAMENTO (UPI)— Opponents of the state's controversial fair housing bill have succeeded in cutting an appropriation to enforce it by $42,000 after failmg to abolish its funds completely. The Senate Finance Committee Monday made the cut fi-om the $117,269 asked by the administration. The cut was made at the request of Sen. Hugh M. Bums, D- Fresno, an opponent of the measure. Sen. John A. Murdy, R - Santa Ana, asked that the entire fund be abolished, but he received support only from Sen. John F. McCarthy, 'R-San Rafael. The bill, outlawing racial discrimination in about 70 per cent of California housing, passed the general session during its final hour, but the budget passed the same day contained no money for its enforcement. The administration asked for the full sum to support an 11.5 man staff. (The fraction results fi'om counting persons who would not work a full year.) A KNOTTY PROBLEM ERIE, Pa.

Wesf hopes may not be fuifiiled By PHIL NEWSOM UPI Foreign News Analyst Perhaps unfortunately for the bad taste that could come later, there is a mounting feeling that the world is at the threshold of profound changes. In Western capitals the hope is that it will be for the better. Chief basis for this hope is tha widening split between the Soviet Union and its Red Chinese allies, and the corollary belief that a split with Red China would make Nikita Khrushchev more amenable toward reaching understanding with the West. Lending support to these hopes have been a number of factors: —In Moscow, the ideological battle between the two Communist giants has been going according to the script laid down weeks and months ago by the warring propaganda organs of the two nations and no compromise appears in sight. —Khrushchev's own apparent belief, as reported to N.ATO by Belgian Foreign Minister Paul Henri Spaak, is that now is the time to reach some agreement on at least a partial nuclear test ban possible in the talks which began and that such an agreement is this week. —Of lesser importance but a straw in the wind, the arrival in Moscow this week, at the Soviets' invitation, of an Indian team seeking Russian air-to-air missiles and other arms and equipment whose use clearly would be intended as defense against Red China. Fancy Outrun$ Fact In London, where hopes of an eventual accord with the Soviets always have run higher than in Washington, fancy has so far outstripped fact as to lead to speculation that partial agreement now on a nuclear test ban naturally would lead to an East West summit. The factors leading to these mounting hopes have been reported from Western capitals by correspondents with access to high sources. But a note of caution is not amiss. A warning note came from chief U.S. negotiator Averell Harriman who said before leaving ing London that a test-ban agree ment is "not in the bag by a long shot." Khrushchev admittedly has big problems on his hands. But he did not reach his high estate in the Soviet hierarchy by giving away all the cards in his hand in advance. In the Red Chinese he faces formidable adversary. Uses Threat As Weapon One of his strongest weapons against them is the threat that he will reacii accord with the West a possibility which he now is encouraging. On their part, the Chinese already have labelled the ideological talks in Moscow a failure, but they also say they can be pa tient. Agreement can come now or a year from now or later. The Chinese have been careful not to stir the enmity of the Soviet people. All of their fire has been centered upon Khrushchev personally and they are banking on his downfall. Meanwhile, they also will be careful to keep their lines to Mos cow open. As for a test ban, it already is too late for any such agreement to include either France or Red China, and without the latter es pecially, sooner or later must become almost meaningless. If a change for the better is on the way, it still must be regarded as practically invisible.

Jon Lindbergh makes courageous rescue attempt SAN DIEGO (UPI)- Jon Lindbergh, 31-year-oId son of the famed aviator, swam 100 yards from an ocean barge in a futile attempt to rescue a man from a crashed helicopter, it was disclosed today. Authorities said Lindbergh, a deep-sea diver for the Metropolitan Sewage System, cut the man free from the pontoon of the copter to which he had been strapped and which was submerged in the sea by the crash. The man, Calvin Hall, 48, El Cajon, a pile-driver foreman, died a few minutes afterward either of injuries or drowning. Hall and two other men were injured Monday when a boom collapsed on the barge which was doing work on the Metropolitan Sewage System project. The helicopter flew out to the barge to pick up the injured workers. Hall was placed on a stretcher which was lashed to a pontoon of the helicopter, piloted by Merle Handley, 34, Pacific Beach. The two other injured men. piledriver Bo 'ce Saylor, 28, and operatujg engineer Leonard Smith, both of San Diego, were taken inside the copter with Handley. The helicopter plunged into the sea and overturned, trapping Hall underwater. Lmdbergh swam to the crash scene, dived underwater and cut Hall free of the pontoon —but it was too late. Saylor and Smith were taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital. Governors' confab faces decision on civil rights OLYMPIA, Wash. (UPI)— The question of whether the National CJovernors' Conference will take a strong stand on civil rights could be decided before most of the state executives get comfortable in their chairs next week at Miami Beach, the conference chairman said today. Gov. Albert D. Rosellini of! Washington, who will preside over the meeUng of the nation's governors, said the critical battle will come Monday over a pro posed rule change which would foredoom any effort to put the conference on record against seg- gregation. The proposed rule would require unanimous consent of a 11 governors present and votmg to approve a resolution. If it is adopted," Rosellini said, "it will mean that no con troversial resolutions will be approved." Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York has already indicated that he is opposed to the plan. Rosellini said he assumed that most of the civil rights block among the governors would also oppose it. But Rosellini—a staunch backer of dvil ri^ts—said he would support the proposition wliich was suggested by the conference's executive committee which he heads. He said he believed the change would have the long range effect of strengthening the hand of the conference in national affairs. A unanimous resolution of the nation's governors, Rosellini said, would carry great weight in Congress. But a resolution adopted by a close vote after a bitter fight would have little real significance. Rosellini said he thinks the governors should have a louder voice in determining national domestic policy. He said the proposed rule would "emphasize he real purpose and role of the conference, a meeting of sovereign heads of different states."

Sismour, 44, was reported to have been making satisfactory progress following the historic transplant but suHered a relapse Sunday.

We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT, A bewfldered mother asks what's wrong with displaying an interest in her teen-age daughter's phone conversations. It seems she answered the telephone for her daughter and when the girl finished her conversation she asked interestedly, "Who was it, dear?" When the daughter told her the boy's name the mother said: "Did he ask you for a date?" With that, her daughter lost her temper, and said it was "impossible to have any privacy at home." Undoubtedly the questions that caused the flareup were just the straws that broke the camel's back. It isn't likely any daughter would have become so upset over such an mcident unless for a long time she had felt that her mother wasn't allowmg her any privacy. Many mothers fail to see that what they consider "normal interest" may seem like pr>-ing to their children. Whether the interest is irritating or not depends on how it is shown. Continual questioning can seem like prying. A mother who is more diplomatic usually learns just as much about a teen-ager's doings by being ready to listen when the daughter seems to want to talk and by being interested in her confidences. No one likes to be continually under the eye of anyone else. As children grow older, the home should become a place where some privacy is provided for all members of the family.
