'OLAti BY BOB BROOKS No candidate is absolutely certain of "being'elected Nov. 7, other than those without .'opposition, but the spirited fight for .speakership of the house of representatives '-has spread into Pima county.'The. present speaker'of the'-house, Raymond" G. Langham, .Globe;, is a candidate for re-election by house, members to this, office As -of the moment, there is no announced opposition? althougf Rep. Kel Fox. Sedona (to Yavapai county) will seek to wield the gav el if he believes he has a good chance of winning. COUNTY DIVIDED As matters stand now, the anti- Langham forces claim " to have lined up seven votes for someone other than- Lahgham 'for speaker, There are 14 state representatives in Pima county. · ;However, conversations with some of'the seven indicate they have, not made up their minds yet, but are interested in reasons for' opposing -Langham, Representatives supporting Lang, ham claim a total of 40 votes, enough to elect him in' a-72-member house. The election is held the first day of the session-in January. Those in the opposition forces say Langham has only 14 absolutely sure votes, and that an opposition candidate, presumably Fox, can get 36--with - only one · more vote needed to elect.' SENATE On the senate side of the legislature, there isn't a great deal of activity over election of the president of that body. While there was early opposition to Sen. .Warner Maltice, Graham, much of this seems to have' melted. In fact,'some of the senators who would like to have seen Sen.- Sam Head, Yavapai, president of the senate, have .advised Mattice they would vote for him. There is still, however, a little i with both Mattice and Head, but It is not expected to cause a third candidate to announce. ALL READY Oddly, there are two women interested in the inaugural ball. of the governor of Arizona; this year, One, of course, Is Mrs. Ana Frohmiller, .the Democratic candidate. The other is Mrs, Howard Pyle,-who has more than passing Interest in the affair, aside from the fact .her husband may be the man Inaugurated as governor. KEMEMBRAJfCJE Mrs. Pyle is a member of the well-known Hannah family of Arizona, a family with many friends. Her father was at one time a blacksmith. So the other day a lifelong friend of the family sent Mrs. Pyle a little note with a check en- ciosed. The friend,, observed that he knaw her when her father .was a blacksmith, and in token of his admiration ^-ne was enclosing a chsck to pay for Mrs. Pyle's inaugural gown. Mrs. Pyle is care-. be cashed and used for the purpose Intended,!? Pyle wins the election. REFERENDUM Legislators' have been remaining silent on the initiative measures o n ' t h e Nov. 7 ballot, but, one. of them. Sen. William. R. Kimball is supporting openly the one; referendum . measure which was voted upon by the legislature before reference to the people -'for vote. Kimball observes that the.measure was approved by -the house: by an overwhelming vote, and there was not- an opposition, vote in the senate to the measure, QUESTIONS Proponents and' opponents' are busy attempting to secure passage or. ; defeat of the increased aid to school Initiative measure on the ballot, and neither side is pulling any .punches. 'However,, from the questions asked speakers during a meeting at a church on the east side of · Tucson last, night,, both sides are'missing the point insofar «s -the rank and file, voter is concerned. These, voters, seemed less interested in merits of the argument 'over state, aid to schools than n questions .of administration of 1 «· -^ v I -1 _. ' How Mueli Should Old Age Assistance Grants Be Is Ai ? gued The question of how much should be paid ln-old;age assistance grants has_been,an Issue In^each election and In 'each session of the 'legi*- r lature since the depression years, and for the second time the matter is on the ballot for vote of'the people. The first time it^was on the ballot was in 1944 when,'the issue ivas $60 at SO years of age. l The second time is this year, when an effort is being made to set the minimum' payment at $75 per month--a move which the federal government says will probably cause its'withdrawal front the old age assistance program and" result In the' state bearing the entire cost. On present numbers of per, sons receiving such aid, this would amount to' about $10,500,000. ' Proponents of this initiative measure which will be on.the ballot Nov. 7 declare that the' present maximum of $60 does not come near.meeting the 'present costs of living, v even' if the maximum is paid. The maximum of $75, as proposed in this measure, would come closer to .this objective, say proponents. , The measure would also prohibit passage of any law which would make children-responsible! for their parents. Proponents ( contend 'that such'a, provision causes conflictjn fam'ilies.-'and that, children should not':, ·have': to- take-care, of their 1 parents while attempting to raise a family of their own. ; They likewise'. contend that the provision of -the -state 'having" the right to file a claim or lien against the estate of .a deceased persbn who has received old "age assistance is poor welfare-principle. - These- proponents, including the Arizona -legislative 'league, argue that those".receiving old age as- sistance'in general are those whO| have spent;-their lives : in'the state Here Are The Provisions On thejjallot at the 4 Nbv.~7, election will.be an initia-, tive, measure ,:which would, provide a minimum of $75^ 'in 'old age- assistance, and: 1; forbid filing-'claims against'' estates-of'deceased for old age''assistance paid'prior to death; 2, forbid^snactment of. any requirement-that financial-responsible relatives contribute to support of mother or father; remove employment as a factor in 1 receiving old age assistance. , ' t ,, : \ ,, . The way the measure'will appear, on the ballot is as follows: '· ' . x ",, -· , Initiative .Measure, Proposed By ..Initiative" Petition r .' . , - ' An Act -· ' , Relating to social security and public welfare: prohibiting liens or claims against the property or estates of recipients -of old age assistance, abolishing legal- responsibility of relatives for support of persons otherwise eligi- 'ble for old age assistance; prohibiting acceptance of employment as a condition of eligibility for old age Assistance; providing a minimum of $75 per month for old age assistance and providing for appropriation of funds th'ere- for; repealing all acts or parts of acts in conflict" herewith', and declaring this measure - to be self-executing and severable..

" Opponents of · the measure, also cite the fact that when the relatives' responsibility clause ..was in the welfare law for about five months, the numbers of persons on old age assistance dropped by about 500 persons. They argue that the basic social philosophy of this nation is based upon the family caring for its own immediate members, not allowing them to accept assistance which they term public charity. The lien clause, which is now In the law in a watered form,/is justified, say opponents, since it, pjo- tects'.the, state ' against plying eral funds to the old age" assistance program if this measure,Is. enacted The agency insists that- welfare i benefits be ·authorized on the basis of need, not .an -arbitrary amount.
