THURSDAY, MARCH 10. T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N TENTATIVE OKAY IN SENATE mfc rension measure Aavances PHOENK -W- State senators today gave tentative approval to a bill which would provide them with retirement benefits ranging from $120 to $900 a month after age 60. The bill was amended so that it applies only to members of 11__ i TT I C1 iJ* uic i,uiit 111 iiuuoc cum UC»KIIC and future legislators. A 10 per cent contribution from the lawmakers themselves also was deleted and the pensions would be paid entirely out of the state treasury. A lawmaker would have to serve a minimum of four years to qualify, and would be able to claim a pension of $30 per month for each year of service up to 10 years. "I don't think it's a good bill and I don't think the people are going to like it," declared Sen. William Huso, D-Navajo, in arguing against the bill on toe Huso said the bill would just give more critics of the legislature more ammunition. Sen. Boyd Tenney, R-Yavapai, spoke against the bill and said: "We're here of our own choice and the state is in no way obligated to make it easy for us." Sen.

Wide Knowledge Vital To Bankers Battaglia Lawyer Asks Another Delay In Trial A federal court hearing has] been set for Monday to determine whether another postponement should be granted in the Charles (Batts) Battaglia extortion case. Battaglia, a former representative of Tucson Vending Amusement Co., is scheduled to go on trial Tuesday on a charge of interfering with interstate commerce laws by allegedly forcing Jerome C. Greenwell to install a pool table device at the Diamond Pin Lanes in 1964. A new postponement of the trial was asked today by Battaglia's attorney, Albert J. Kri»- ger of New York, on grounds the defendant has suffered another heart attack and now is confined at Tucson Medical Center. Battaglia was admitted to the hospital on Feb. 27 after complaining of chest pains, accord- ing to the motion, and is to be released tomorrow. The motion stated that Drs. Lee I. Shocket and Harold Stolz, both cardiologists, were called in to consult with Battaglia's physician, Dr. T. E. A. von De- denroth, and found the defendant is suffering from an unstable angina condition. Shocket previously had been appointed by the federal court to examine Battaglia when a trial postponement was sought and obtained in December. Battaglia was indicted on the charge last March along with Sal Spinelli and T. Kay Estes. Spinelli and Estes were acquitted in December after winning a separate trial because of several postponements of the case- granted on the basis of Battaglia's reported illness. referred to the bill as a "dole system." "I don't feel like the legislature is overly paid but we asked for it, no one made us run," Hall said. He noted the governor ,has asked for economy in all parts of government and saiu the bill is ''unuineiy." Sens. Edward Kennedy, D- Pima, and Earle Cook, D-Mohave, defended the bill. Kennedy said higher benefits would "attract people of higher caliber" to the legislature. "It always sounds good to taxpayers to expound economy," Kennedy commented. Cook said that many legislators have sacrificed successful businesses to serve in the House or Senate. "I need it and want it," he concluded. The standing vote was 15-7 for the bill. LBJ Eases _ JLU Red Nations WASHINGTON - UPI - President Johnson has ordered a new relaxation of travel bans to permit American scholars to visit Communist China, Cuba and other Communist countries, administration sources said today. Under the new policy scholars may apply to the State Department for special validation of their U.S. passports for travel to Red China, Cuba, Albania, North Korea and North Viet Nam. U.S. passports are stamped as not valid for travel in those countries. The action leaves it up to the five countries whether to let American scholars in. U.S. newsmen have been eligible for some time to visit off-limit countries. The Cubans frequently let them ,in. The Chinese generally don't. Soviets Rule Officially That Mott Was Suicide MOSCOW -UP1- The Soviet government ruled officially today that American tourist Newcomb Mott committed suicide. The conclusion, presented to the American Embassy, ended a two-month "thorough investigation," promised by the Russians. Apparently it did not differ from the Soviet allegation immediately after Mott died ·that he killed himself aboard a train taking him to a Siberian labor camp. The Soviet ruling and 26 pages of evidence attached to it were eagerly awaited in Washington, w h e r e several officials had asked for proof of suicide.

Practically everything, Vern '-·Waldo, president of the Ameri- ·"can Institute of Banking, a ^.group designed to teach bank. _ing employes, said today. '; Waldo was in Tucson today "'to confer with the local chapter of AIB, headed by Mrs. Anne ,. Clay. " "As, society and our economy ~ become more complex, bankers -iiave'to know more about an ",'increasing number of indus- '.-'tries," he said. "Such knowl- -''edge is vital to improving cus- " ; tomer service. ~ "And service, after all, is ""the main thing banks have to "·offer." Only recently, the AIB educational offerings have been increased to include courses in principles of bank data processing, international banking, and conference and parliamentary procedure. Why parliamentary procedure? x ^ '- "You'd be surprised," said - "Waldo, "at how many bank ^-presidents and chairmen have :- ascended to their chairs with;*out really knowing how to conduct a meeting."

Banks, of course, are happy - to see their employes studying ways to progress in their jobs. They back up this desire with hard cash, too--more than $5 million annually for AIB plus regional and s t a t e training schools. Not all bank employes take part, but in the Tucson area there is about 50 per cent participation, said Mrs. Anna Foster, who represents Arizona, Hawaii and southern California on the AIB executive council. Banks even subsidize their employes' training further, by repaying them their AIB tuition fees after they've completed a course. In Tucson they pay on a sliding basis for grades --100 per cent payback for an "A," and lesser paybacks for lower grades. "It sounds like a splendid incentive to do well," said Mrs. Foster. Teacher Job Situation Said Still Wanting ST. LOUIS, Mo.--(IB-Dramatic improvements have been made in teacher working conditions and fringe benefits, but teachers still have a long way to go until they catch up with their private industry colleagues, says the AFL-CIO's American Federation of Teachers. No Limit On Campaign Spending Is Favored PHOENIX -- Iff!i -- The Senate counties and municipalities committee today approved an amendment .which would take the limit off the amounts which can be spent in campaigning for any political office in Arizona. After amending the bill, the committee gave it a do pass recommendation. As originally proposed, the bill would have raised the limit for legislators from $250 to $2,500 for a campaign. But the committee agreed this morning that the limits for every office are unrealistic. One senator said the limits "just make a liar" out of all candidates. resrons/b/e SEWER CLEANING 327-8817 «,,££!£ nm I w i i -.»·.»»-j»r.»--.'Jt The committee cleared a major House-passed bill to increase the State Parole Board from three to five members. This bill is still in the judiciary committee where some amendments are being prepared. A bill and constitutional amendment which would limit property tax exemptions for churches was given the green light. It was amended to provide the exemption for church buildings and up to 25 acres of land, but would not allow the tax break on other property or businesses owned by churches. A House bill to make it illegal to use the telephone to terrify or intimidate also was approved.
