WEDNESDAY, MAY 19,1965. IRONWOOD DAIIY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIFTffN Senate Debates Refinancing of Straights Bridge By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP) — The Senate faced a showdown on Mackinac rridge refinancing today which threatened to bring the already- slow consideration of bills to a crawL Senators approved a $184,341,301 higher education appropriation Tuesday but in seven hours of debate passed only five other measures. The bridge debate was expected in connection with the planned $60,606,228 appropriation for state building projects. Sen. Thomas Schweigert, R- Petoskey, prime Senate advocate of bridge refinancing, planned to introduce an amendment to the capital outlay bill requiring the state to issue general obigation bonds with which to buy up the $99.8 million outstanding in bridge revenue bonds. A Schweigert bill to the same effect was killed by deadline in the state affairs committee Friday amidst angry comments about political tactics. Sen. Raymond Dzendzel, D- Detroit, the majority leader, complained Tuesday about the slow pace as bill passage deadline, May 28, nears. He said today's bridge complications might use up another half-day or more. Schweigert wasn't predicting how his amendments would fare but indications were that he would talk at length about them. The refinancing and transfer of bridge supervision is supposed to save $1.5 million a year at no expense to the taxpayers while permitting lowering of tolls from $3.75 for a one -way auto trip to $2.35. Major arguments on the higher education bill centered around salary for the new appointive superintendent of public in struction and operation of the cooperative extension program of Mchigan State University. Senators finally voted to trim the proposed superintendent's salary from the $40,000 recommended by the appropriations committee to $30,000, the amount earned by the governor. After an attack by Sen. John Bowman, D-Roseville, against home economics aspects of the extension program, senators voted against trimming the agency's appropriation. The bill brought Senate spending so far for the 1965-66 fiscal year to $332,017,876, close to the figures outlined by Gov. George Romney in his budget. The Senate passed one bill which will cut an estimated $1,184,000 from revenues. It provides a different system of computing the markup made on liquor by specially designated distributors—those private stores selling under state license. It will increase dealer profits from 9.2 per cent to 10 per cent with no increase in consumer price. Amendments which would have passed the higher profit on to the buyer at a cost of about a nickel per fifth of whiskey were defeated. Insurance companies no longer will be able to cancel auto policies solely because of the insuree's age under terms of another bill, approved 32-1. Spain produces one-third of all the world's olive oil. Olive trees grow in 37 of the country's 50 provinces.

J. Violetta of Ironwood, chairman of Livelihood Days here. In connection with the observance, Violetta has issued the following statement: Oogebic County has had its share of reverses in employment and payroll losses; but, on the whole, a spirit of optimism prevails regardless. This local spirit which p r o- mpted organizations to help existing employers and to enlist new emp 1 o y e r s to enter the county is starting to pay off. The public spirited citizens be h i n d these movements des e r v e a great deal of credit and encouragement. We are seeing the growth of a new industry in the winter sports developments at Indian- head Mt., Powderhorn Mt. and White Cap Mt. which will play an important role in employing people at the facilities themselves and also at the accomo- dations for the skiers and their families. * * * The White Pine Copper Co. in Ontonagon County continues to employ large numbers of Gogebic County personnel, and will probably draw still more from this area as expansion plans develop. The Peterson Mine is the one remaining iron ore mine in Gogebic County. It is not known what the future holds in store for this operation, but it is hoped that the operators wi 11 find it profitable to cont i n u e mining as long as possible. A branch plant has recen 11 y been opened by the Illinois Glove Co. in the plant formerly occupied by the Hansen Glove Co. Employment rolls at this plant will be gradually increased as equipment arrives and orders are received. The Netz Glove Co. has also been operating at this location, but will move to other quarters in the near future. The Wakefield Furniture Co. was formed by a local group and located in the former Wakefield Ice Rink. It has not reached a high degree of production, and its employment will depend in large part in the plans underway to create mar* kets for their line of furniture. The Schult Mobile Corp. continues to operate a principal branch plant in Ironwood, and has contributed considerably to the economy of the area. A smaller trailer manufact u r e r, the Hiawatha Mobile Homes Co., is operating in Ironwood with a small but stable work force. * * * Four sawmills are still operating in the County despite a dwindling supply of saw logs— Ahonen Lumber Co., Ironwood; Hendrickson Wood Products and Steiger Lumber Co., Bessemer; Connor Land it Lumber Co., Wakefield, and Kimberly-Clark of Mic h 1 g a n, Marenisco. Ahonen's operates a hardwood flooring mill and Steiger's a furniture panel plant in conjunction with the sawmills. The Universal Machine Co., Anvil, is the only machine tool industry in the county. It has hopes to expand employment. The Wakefield Ski Lodge and Big Wheel in Wakefield, former Community Building, was recently remodelled and opened to the public. It is primarily intended to accommodate guests seeking recreation in the area. * * * R u p p e Concrete Produ c t s plant in Ironwood Township has grown from a small beginning to a sizeable operation. It ships concrete blocks, bricks and other concrete products within a wide radius. It maintains a sta ble work force during the production and shipping season. A new ready mix c o ncrete plant, the Globe Concrete Co., Is located at the site of the former East Norrie Mine with the most modern of mixing and handling of bulk concrete. Meyer's Sausage Co. has been an established sausage manufacturing firm in Ironwpoo for many years, and has maintained a staff of skilled sausage makers, maintenance and sales personnel. An important employer i n the publishing field for over 40 years has been the Ironw o o d Daily Globe. It not only employs a large number of people, but has served well in promoting the county's econ o m i c and cultural assets. The Upper Michigan Wisconsin Broadcasting Corp., operator of 1 WJMS Radio Station, is a familiar employer to all county residents. It has played a big part in promoting the area and keeping the people informed. Development of the Ottawa National Forest makes the U.S. Forest Service a seasonal employer of crews for forest and park improvement. It will be operating the Job Corps Camp Ojibway in the county with i n the near future. A condensed breakdown of employment totals for Gogebic County by general classifi c a - tions are as follows: Iron ore mining—230; sawmills and logging—725; government (including schools)—1,115; business anc professional services—460; retai trade—825; wholesale trade — 150; transportation, commu n i cation utilities—335; constru c tion—285; printing and publish* ing—55; food operations —190; transportation equipment — 25; manufacturing — 150; mobile; homes—100; self employm e n 6 —800; commuters to White Pints —720; ski hills past season — 170.
