Bill to freeze shelf prices on food introduced Our State Bureau S A C R A M E N T O Grocery stores would be prevented from' raising prices on items already priced and displayed on shelves under legislation introduced Tuesday by Sen. Joseph M, Kennick and Assemblyman Fred Chel. The two Long, Beach Democrats said the bill was limited to consumer goods exempt from the sales and use tax, pn marily food. "Raising prices on , food items already for sale is a blatant consumer abuse for which there, is no excuse," Che! said. "As ; usual, the people hardest hit are those with low comes who are u n a b l e to buy large quantities of sale-priced items" Kennick noted t h a t several market chains already had established a^'no repricing" policy and said s u c h firms should be commended. m .INDEPENDENT.(AM) PRESS-TElEGRAMtPMl-ArS, ·v, . 4 Aged' pair win battle "A - ' . · . to adopt SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- -In a landmark, case, the California Court of Appeal ruled Tuesday that a 71-year-old man and his 55-year-old wife may adopt a child, although state officials had said they were too old. The court said adoption of (a child cannot be denied solely on the basis of -the age of the foster parents. ' . - · · ' . It was the first time the question of parents' age arTd adoption had been considered by a California court, the appeals court said. . . . . ' · · . . . THE COURT ruled against the state. Depart- m^nt of Health .and in favor of Ralph and Alice " San Francisco, who now may adopt 2-year-old Michelle Lee T. ' The appellate court said a '.lower court and the health department erred in 'denying the adoption , only on the basis of the foster parents' age, disregarding other factors and the "overriding best interest of the child." "More compelling reasons than advanced age alone must support the denial of an adoption," the court said, "particularly when, as here, one. of the petitioners has a life expectancy sufficient to guide the child to adulthood. : : "IN THE total evaluation, the age of the Adopting parent should be 'considered only as it relates to all the study factors, including the ·length of time that the child has been in the home and the relationships that have been established." The court said it would be wrong "to remove Michelle T. from a warm, stable family home merely because of petitioners' age and set her adrift in a sea of bureaucratic uncertainty." The child was bora on June 30, 1972, in Pueblo, Colo. Mrs. B. had been told the baby would be placed for adoption. The mother signed a consent and the California couple received the child in July 1972 and petitioned for adoption on April 25,1973. THE STATE health department filed an investigative report recommending the adoption be denied. A lower court granted a stay pending appeal. ''The department admitted that all factors except petitioners' age we're favorable, yet it chose to ignore the positive factors and focus on' ttte single detrimenal factor-," the court said. ,.· · *fe said an adoption study'must by law cover stCch .things as family relationships, understanding of the needs of, chil- dfen, plans and opportunities for the child's social iovolopmnnt, religious Iraining, education, health mid financial resources. ere's never DRUG AND DISCOUNT STORES 1 A *O'^M^; I '/ /,/^w ,,**./ tF7"pj'4+ *fs, y s T s. .*.
