Anti-Picket Bill Backed In Lansina 2-State Port Plan Studied By Chicago A Chicago Planning Commission report Monday recommended that 1,100 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline, just west of the Illinois-Indiana line, be reserved for harbor facilities. This area would be part of a proposed joint Illinois-Indiana harbor extending from 85th street across the mouth of the Calumet River to the Gary harbor. "The competitive position of Lake Calumet as a commercial harbor may be weakened if a more accessible lakefront harbor is developed on Lake Michigan," the interim report stated. Chicago's Mayor Dajey accepted the report saying that it is a blueprint for planning that must be done in preparation for development of the Calumet area. THE OPENING of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, and the widening of the Calumet-Sag Canal in 1961 "are likely to spur rapid growth in industry in Chicago and near-by areas,f calling for inten sive and adequate planning, according to Ira J. Bach, Chicago's city planning commissioner. The area may become mired in Minister Police Nab 25 Speeders last considered by a Chicago citi- j MUNSTER Twenty-five speed zens committee in the 1930s.

Munster Police Chief William Retzloff reported that was the number of speeding arrests made LANSING Local 12 of the Christian Labor Assn. of Lansing is campaigning to help passage of the Illinois anti-picket , bill. William M. Freeman, attorney for Local 12, said, Monday night, that the CLA is interested in the bill because the group "believes in the independent union movement." HE SAID the local and its work ers had been picketed on their jobs several times because they weren't members of national labor organizations. "The bill," he explained, "would make picketing lawful only when there is a labor dispute." Freeman, representing the 200-member union which includes all building trades," spoke in favor of a bill in Springfield on Wednesday. Others from the area favoring the bill were Sidney Vander Werff, president of the Calumet Construction Assn., and Robert Tessar, president of the Lansing Chamber of Commerce. VANDER WERFF said the three groups are going to try to organize a write-in campaign of citizens to ask their representatives to pass the bill. A hearing on opponents of the bill and a final decision on it are scheduled for May 8 in Springfield, Freeman reported.
