PAGE 14 Pima birthrate IRS files · i i · tnit li f^Ti ^ continues decline on T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12. Union dues case appealed Pima County's birthrate took a slight dip last year -following a trend of the last decade. Betty Warner, director of the county division of vital statistics, said the county's birthrate declined from 16.76 births per 1,000 population in 1974 to about 16.1 births in 1975. Births decreased by about 25, totaling 7,245 for last year, although the county's population increased by about 15,400, she said. The figures are included in a study under way on the area's birthrate. The study is to be completed in July. Mrs. Warner expects birthrates to climb next year despite growing use of birth control, because, according to county statistics, more and more women in Pima County are entering the child-bearing years of 20 to 29. In 1974, women in the 20- to- 24-year-old bracket maintained the highest rate of childbirth, followed closely by women in the 25- to-29-year- old bracket. That same year, 15- to 19-year-olds were the largest group of women, with 20- to 24-year-olds in second place. Beverly Duncan, sociology professor at the University of Arizona, said the number of women in child-bearing years is increasing nationwide. The growth of the group is due to the surge of births after World War If, beginning about 1948 and continuing through the early 1960s, she said. "I don't think anyone can be certain that the birthrate will increase, because statistics also show that women are choosing to have far fewer babies," Professor Duncan added. In the 1950s, children were bom at the rate of 3.7 per woman while in 1974, the rate declined to '1.9 children per woman. PHOENIX (AP) -- The Internal Revenue Service has filed tax liens for $337,981 against the estate of 'millionaire financier Walker McCune and his wife, Carol. The IRS said the'liens were to recover personal income taxes owed by the late McCune for 1969 and 1970. The latest liens will join a list of other tax liens and debts lodged against McCune's estate, McCune died in April 1971, without ever living in a mansion, built on 37 acres of landscaped grounds at a cost of about $5.2 million in the 1960s. McCune and his wife separated during the construction, and he spent the final months of his life in the mansion's guest house. A. Tucson railroad employe who unsuccessfully asked the federal court to exempt him from union membership because of his religious beliefs has appealed the decision. Duane T. Bums, a Seventh- day Adventist who said his church shuns unions, lost the case against the railroad and the United Transportation · Union and its local arm last month. Bums, a Southern Pacific brakeman and conductor since 1955, had sought an order allowing him to keep his job despite* a union-railroad pact requiring all railroad employes in his status to be dues-paying union members. A federal judge ruled that Burns had to pay dues to stay with the railroad, because setting up a separate category for him would cause "undue hardship" on the railroad and cause ill-feelings among other employes. Judge James A. Walsh ordered Burns to pay court costs of the railroad and union after dismissing the suit. Burns, who originally had also sought $150,000 in damag- es, dropped that goal after the railroad agreed to keep him on during the suit. Bums has taken the case to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for review.
