Brown today called the Legislature into special ses sion beginning at noon Monday to make another try at adopting a state budget of nearly $3 billion. The chief executive announcer that he would appear before a joint session of the Senate and Assembly to ask the lawmakers to approve his spending program. In recess for the weekend, the legislature only .had four majot issues remaining--but they were the same four that locked the lawmakers in bitter partisan battles for weeks. The issues were: 1. The budget. Assembly Rc- 3ublicans refused to agree to a spending bill totaling nearly $2.9 billion at last Tuesday's constitutional deadline, forcing the special session, 2. Bond issues totaling $970 mil- ion. The long stalemate over wnd issues appeared to be broken with compromise agreement ictwcen Democrats and Rcpub- icans. 3. Reapportionment of the state Senate. The upper chamber Government Efficiency Committee set Wednesday hearing on nn Assembly-approved rcdislricting bill, Hit chances of its approval were opment. 4. Draw poker. The Senate Gov ernment Efficiency Committee had under submission a bill by Assemblyman George Willson, D Huntington Park, to allow Los Angeles County to outlaw draw poker. Probable Budget Message Brown is expected to suggest the lawmakers adopt the budget version approved by a Senate- Assembly joint conference committee, but turned down in the Assembly at midnight Tuesday. In order to get the budget through the Assembly, Democrats need to pull 10 Republican votes .0 join the, majority party's 44 Democrats. In the first showdown, .he Republicans, with one excep- .ion. voted as a solid bloc against the budget. But that Democrats and Republicans were in a mood for com womise was evidenced late Thursday when the Assembly whisked through $870 million in veterans, school, recreation ami slate construction bonds. Three ol he bond .issues shot out of Ui owcr chamber with imnnimous votes. Only one, n $150 million park and recreation bond, failed to gel innnimous sanction of Ihe Assom- Jy. Six Republicans voted against Cameron, D-Auburn. Another Senate-initiated bond issue, $270 million in state construction bonds, got a 58-0 vote--four more than the 54 votes needed to approve it. By identical 59-0 roll calls, the Assembly approved and sent to the upper chamber a $200 million P 1 school bond issue and a $250 million veterans bond issue. Under a compromise agreen worked out after weeks of partisan battling, all four bond issues will be on Ihe June primary election ballot. Brown made that certain by signing a compromise bill introduced by Republican Assemblyman Carl Britschgi, Redwood City, setting the bond issues for June. Joining these issues will be a $100 million bond for low interest ionic loans to the elderly. This iroposal, authored in Ihe 1961 egislaturc by Sen. Hugh H. Burns, D-Fresno, had been sched- ilcd for November. Brown originally planned lo split .he bond issues about evenly be- .ween June and November hut the Republicans insisted that they be ogclher nt the lop of Ihe Novetn- icr ballot, when Brown will be lidding for re-election. The com- iromisc puts them* together in Atty. Gen. Shiro Kashiwa of H, waii said he was asked by th ustice Department to draw u an affidavit which could be use as a basis of such an injunction Gov. William F. Quinn, who de clared a state of emergency i Hawaii earlier this week becaus of dwindling food supplies, he probably would send the aff: davit to Washington Monday. Th governor said Goldberg told him the administration was consider ing Taft-Hartley action. The PMA said its original offe of an increase was withdrawn be :ause the industry "can't pay the striking unions what it is losinj in revenue and lost cargoes due to the strike which the union: called." Highest Paid Seamen Even without an increase, the PMA said, the unions are com posed of the "highest paid men for this work in Uie United States and the world." Morris Weisberger, chief ne gotialor for the striking unions conceded that West Coast seamen ' are the highest paid in the world.

Weisberger estimated that the average East Coast seaman makes ?384 base pay and will be making $401 by 1964. "But if we don't get this increase, we will have fallen behind East Coast rales in three years," he said. "We've always lad a higher scale than the East Coast and we intend to see that the differential is maintained."
