The six occurred after he,and Jennie were wed in 1947, Marin contends. As part of his probation Marin, 49, a truck driver, was ordered to clear his marriage rec- ods. The suits wee filed Friday. By naming all his wives in one complaint Marin paid a single filing fee of $35.50. Seven separate suits would have cost seven times as much. Congress must make up its mind, that the cost figure is relatively unimportant in terms of what we have to do in order to save this country from the possibility of chaos." "Congress must lead and the country must push Congress," Lindsay said. "Both must happen and unless it happens we're in for trouble." In a move to generate this lublic push, commission members plan scores of appearances across the nation in the months ahead. other commission members' cily bankru P t '^ing to meet the were being interviewed on ABC's "Issues and Answers" and a half-dozen mayors were problems in our community," Addonizio added.

Edward W Brooke, R-Mass., told newsmen and other members have commited themselves to travel- ng around the country "to give wide dissemination of our views and to do all we can for the im- ilemenlation of the recommendations." The gist of the commission's ecommendations were dis- losed in the summary report eleased Thursday night. The nil report also included propos- 1s for: —Another hike In the federal minimum wage, which climbed to $1.60 an hour only last month. —Broadening the 7 pen cent investment credit to give industry a tax incentive to locate new plans in poverty areas and train unemployed slum residents. —Starting a system of government income supplements for any person—employed or jobless—who exists on substandard income.
