House Committee Chairmen Named T °i PEK ?L/ AP) ~' HoUse s P eaker Fees an d salaries, Rex Borgen, Charles Arthur named several veteran legislators as chairmen of key committees in the 1963 legislative session yesterday. Rep. Jess Tahlor, R-Tribune, a former speaker, was reappointed chairman of the Legislative Reapportionment and State Affairs committees. The Legislative Reapportionment Committee will be busy with bills to reapportion the state Senate and possibly the House. The State Affairs Committee always has a large agenda of important legislation. Rep. Ed Beaman, R-Hoyt, was reappointed chairman of the Highways Committee which will consider recommendations for a stepped up state highway program. Arthur reappointed Rep. John Bower, R-McLouth, chairman of the Education Committee. This committee will have major problems in school district reorganization, school finance, and possibly the question of bringing Wichita University into the state system of higher education. Rep. Lawrence Slocombe, R- Marion, was reappointed chairman of the important Assessment and Taxation Committee while Rep. Fred Meek, R-Idana, was returned as chairman of the powerful Calendar Committee. In all, Arthur reappointed 24 of the 45 chairmen of committees in the 1961 and 1962 sessions. The biggest surprise came in the appointment of Rep. Robert, R-Leavenworth, as chairman of the Labor Committee headed the last two years by Rep. Ross Doyen, R-Rice. Doyen was named vice chairman, however. In most other cases changes resulted when the former chairmen either did not return to the Legislature or were promoted to more important posts. Rep. John Conrad, R-Greensburg, who opposed Arthur for election as speaker, was returned as chairman of the highly important Ways and Means Committee, Greensburg and Rep.

(AP) With a battle cry of "segregation forever," incoming Gov. George Wallace told the nation's leaders yesterday that Southern voters will elect the next president. "From this day," he declared in his prepared inaugural address, "we intend to take the offensive and carry our fight for freedom across the nation, wielding the balance of power we know we possess in the Southland. "We, not the insipid bloc voters sections, will determine in the next election who shall sit in the White House of these United States." The 43-year-old former state court judge, a Democrat who has refused to follow the national party in its racial stand, was elected on a segregation platform to become Alabama's 49th governor. The new governor almost certainly faces a racial showdown. Three Negroes have applied for admission to the white University of Alabama; others have made preliminary inquiries about attending Auburn University. In Birmingham, a suit is pending to desegregate city schools.
