· B/ BOB WEUS It Wasn't Dcr Lidclle Elves You may recall that an item appeared here a couple of days ago about a bewildered citizen who as he was driving to work saw a succession of shoes placed precisely on the white center line for several blocks along 10th St. We lijvo further rci'«iU fumi ;!.( neutral observers of other shoes in the roadway. One woman reports that she observed a line of work shoes in (ho middle of Atlantic Ave. between Anaheim and 10th Sts. No, she doesn't know how they got there, either. She's sure they couldn't have been dropped by dcr liddle elves, because they didn't have dcr pointy toes like elf shoes. 1'nr llio Hinls _ On the other hand, there just might have been dancing in the street over t'hataxvay. with people dancing off both their shoes to celebrate the re-establish- mcnt of the L o n g , ncach Homing Pigeon Club. . Tne startling information that the Lion's drag strip and Boys Club, etc., crowd have been joined by the homing pigeon set in combating juvenile delinquency comes from brothers. Tom Garner, GE 4-9505. is president of the club, in case'you think racing is for the birds, too. For races, thi birds are taken to a designated spot along Highway M and released. The bird with the best yards-per-minutc speed wins. Speeds will range from 35 to "0 miles per hour. Length nf the races varies from Delano (150 miles) to LaPine, Ore. (70i) miles). ·All you -iiced fur this sport, the Kramm brothers Mid, is a small loft for the birds, a few pair of homing . a penult to maintain pigeons, a timer and a survey. I dunno. I think if I were going into pigeon racing. I'd want a garage, too. I mean, I wouldn't want my car parked in the open when they round the turn and head for home. WELLS the Kramm Just a Jaguar A man I know, who traded in his Thundcrbird for a Jaguar (I one* knew a man who traded in a Continental for a SLR .100, but he died), has been hemusedly perusing the Operator's Manual that came with the machine. ' · What fascinates him about the manual is that nowhere within the thick book is there any of the advertising puffs and self-praise lhat come in the coatcd-paper, multicolored booklets which Detroit gives out with its automobiles. There is one passage, though, where the writer of the book almost lost his dignity and yielded to the temptation of hot-and-cold-running adjectives. Discussing the maximum running-in speeds in each the four gears, the book says: · "If these maximum speeds are not carefully observed, the good running qualities nf which the Jaguar is capable may not be obtained." I. tils of Associates The go-getting Downtown Long Beach Associates has apparently the largest membership of any downtown association in the United States, DI.BA rlaims in its htcst bulletin. It has over 700 members, for instance, as compared with .TOO for Smog Angeles or Smogdad-on-thc-Suhway, or ovcrwhat that city to the north of us is called. 11 (··! r E.

The Assembly defeat came soon after collapse of an at empt by Democrats to com iromise a partisan dispute ivcr. when $970 million In state bonds should be votet upon by the people. THE DEMOCRATS had loped to pick up the necessary Republican votes, for the mdgct by agreeing to submil all the bonds on the June primary ballot. Any possible deal fcl hrough, however, when Republicans insisted on guaran ccs that the Senate and Gov. 3rown would go along. A s s e m b l y m a n Robert Crown. D-Alameda. Brown's chief budget spokesman, said ic was "shocked and dis- ressed" at the vote. Crown said it had been rumored that the GOP had agreed to vote against'the judget no matter what it con- .ained. 'Today I feel the Republi can Party has derogated any claim they might have to cadcrship in this state for the next four years," Crown said. * · * * ASSEMBLY Majority Lead cr Jerome Waldie, D-Antioch. offered to back a bill hy As scmblyman Carl Britschgi. R ledwood City, which would lave put all the bond issues, ncluding one approved hy he 19G1 legislature, on the iune 5th primary ballot. Republicans demanded as surances, however, that the lilt would clear the Senate and that Gov. Brown would sign it. Waldie said he could not commit the other parties, ilthough he understood they vcre willing to accept Brit ;chgi's plan. Republicans blocked a par iamcntary maneuver which would have kept BritKchgi's ill before the house. Waldie lien moved to adjourn the pccial session, leaving only lie budget on the agenda. Assemblyman Crown, a member of the conference ommittee on the budget, dc cribcd its report as one which "made a lot of conccs ions to the Republicans." "WHETHER they're going o be statesmen and accept it, ir do as is rumored and vote igainst the budget no matter what is in it, I don't know," Cmwn said. Terms nf the committee's grcement were still unknown vilh only an hour remaining n the budget session. Its chances of passage were louhtful in the Assembly, there majority Democrats iced 10 Republican votes for the required two-thirds majority. The house lines up 44 Democrats, .14 Republicans, 2 vacancies. · · · * ASSEMBLYMAN Robert T. Monagan. R-Tracy, chairman of a GOP task force on the budget, predicted the 10 Republican votes would not he forthcoming without major up with a partisan fight over the date--June, or November -- for submitting five bond issues to a vote of the people. * · · * TEMPERS FLARED for a while during the budget dead' lock. Assemblyman Augustus F. Hawkins. D-Los Angeles, cluirman of the lower house Rules Committee, announced lie was suspending action on Senate bills because he had heard senators had walked out of the budget conference committee. Assembly sources said Sen. George Miller Jr., D-Martincz. one of the conferees, broke up the budget talks Monday night in anger over Assembly ipprnval of a measure to reapportion the Senate. The two · house fight was smoothed over, however, when the conferees went back n session. The reapportionmcnt hil', which would add tlirco Senile scats for Lns Angeles County and give five other urban counties a second senator, was assigned to the Senate Governmental Efficiency Committee. The committee was ixpcctcd to perform a quick lurial. * * * * ASSEMBLY Speaker Jesse . Unnih. D-Los Angeles, author of the measure, said ic hoped the Senate would adopt it but he did not intend o do more than simply present it in the upper house. "I doubt that any amount of persuasion by me or any- going to affect any votes in the Senate," Jnruh said. Nine senators i*«ued a itatemcnt calling the rcappor- ionmcnt plan a "numbers ;ame being played by those vho seek to upset the present check and balance system in our legislative body." The Republicans still stood irm in demanding all five ond issues on the November lallot, when Gov. Brown will ie seeking re-election. They rgucd that more voters turn ut in November, and they hould be able to consider ill $970 million in bonds at me time. Democrats, who first pro- xwcd that the bond issues be plit between the two ballots, ipparcntly were ready to igree to placing all on the lune ballot. REPUBLICANS wore in- isting that this include a 100-million issue for low- ent housing for elderly pco- lc, put on the November hal- ot continued. "But I promised 1 would make it public hy Friday and I won't go hack on my promise. And five days should he plenty of time for the archbishop to give me an audience." Monagan said the Democrats apparently were count' ing on cracking the Rcpuh lican bloc hy forcing the budget down to the wire. The actic has worked in the past, Union Asks Todd Men End Strike (Continued From Page A-l) ant general manager disa greed He contended the stoppage was the result of the fir- ng of a shop steward and said the workmen had indicated they would return to their jobs if he were reinstated. The steward, George Wil son, was fired Friday on a 'ompany allegation he li.ui advised the workers to leave Iheir jobs. But spokesmen Tor Ihe rebel group claimed lhat Wilson had advised them to go back to work. · » · · "IT IS THE unanimous opinion of the official board of Local f) and the national representatives, on advice of our attorney, lhat Ihe stop work action of Ihe welders will he far more injurious to the case nf George Wilson hy continuing this unauthorized action," the workers were told in mimeographed letters fmm the union. Monagan said, hut it won't work this time. The budget issue was tied Sen. Hugh M. Burns. D- 'rcsno, author nf the housing- rand proposal, said he would agree, but only if it aided a solution on Ihe budget. Assemblyman John K. Bus- erud, R-San Francisco, chairman of the Assembly GOP Caucus, accused the Democratic leadership of "ruthless wlitics \vith the affairs of tho ilifomia veterans."
