WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVE Drive Fund for Boys Trip to Fair Is Topic WAKEFIELD — The issue of sponsoring a scrap iron drive to secure funds for a trip for the School Patrol Boys, and the furnishing of a financ i a 1 statement of receipts and d i s- bursements on this project was again brought up at the meeting of the city council Monday evening. When the approval of the minutes of previous meetings came up, Councilman Emil Movric h stated that a portion of the minutes of the July 19 meeting was incorrect and asked that they be corrected. He said the minutes stated that he and Councilman Oscar Mackie had asked that, retraction be made in this • matter, wherein Mackie had made the demands and not him' which shou'd be .specifically stated. Mackie said the stories were a political smear. The council voted to correct the; minutes. ! A petition containing 175 signatures was presented, thanking the police for their fine work in securing funds to send the boys to the fair, the time and effort used on this project, their work in cnri;ig for the boys on t h e trip and showing them a good time and a statement say i n g the council owed the police department a vote of confidence. Movrich agreed that the drive purpose was a good one, said the police but failed to present a financial report. He said he was not against the drive. Mac- 1 kie said the petition was u n -' called for and just another smear. Councilman Walter Nunimaker said this fund drive was not the business of the council and the council had no business to ask for such a financial statement, asking that if such was the case, a financial statement should be demanded of anyone vho did anything for the youth of the city. On the voting that the petition be received and filed, Movrich voted no, stating it was un- JUST ARRIVED! . . . a large selection of smartly styled Junior and Junior Petite DRESSES for Back to School 5.98 6.98 7.98 and 10.95 Mae's Style Shoppe S.

Hanson, Nunimaker and Linn voted yes. i Four bids were opened on six inch cast iron pipe, ranging in price from $1.86 to $2.17 per) foot. The bids were received and will be tabulated. The three year lease on a garage site property for William Stratman, at $1 a year in advance was renewed. The revised rates of the electric utility, as per schedule submitted for 20 per cent across the board, was approved with minor discussion on future reductions and departments. A departmental memorandum in regard to a blanket resolution on the closing of trunk line highways for races, celebrations and such, as requested, was also approved. This would eliminate the holding of a special meeting to approve such a resolution when it occurred. A letter from the Department of Corrections revealed that the local jail had been inspected and found clean and in operating order under the direction of Chief of Police Dominic Valesano. A letter from the Muni c i p a 1 League regarding a meeting at Grand Rapids in August was filed since no money was allowed in the budget for such trips. Members may attend at their own expense. A request from the American Legion to use the park for a picnic in August was approved. Manager Henry Carr reported! that he had received the forms [ needed from Ruble Associat e s, the contract with the company for the lagoon work project and sewage, had been revised and in order and had been studied by | the manager, engineer and at-j torney. Copies of the cont r a c t| will be made for members of j the city council for study. The complete contract was read by i the city clerk. j Parking problems on P i e rce '. Street were discussed. Movrich j brought out that several com-) panics would like a re-hearing in the case of natural gas, as ; long as no exclusive franch i s e j had been given; the paving pro-| gram in the city was discussed, j with drainage problems on sev-l eral streets being aired. The, Brotherton Street cut-off was' discussed, with an estimate to; be made for a future project. I Nunimaker asked that sin c e, the county has lost such an efficient county official, a card of sympathy should be sent to Mrs. Axel Tenlen, which was approved. Carr stated he had contact e d the Economic Opportunity Act MUSIC THURSDAY NITE BY THE GALAXIES WHITE BIRCH INN'BESSEMER Pizza & Hamburgers Served Daily official and that several -men will be available for park work in the city at no cost to the city. The men will receive city rate of pay and work 32 hours a week. A progress report on several jobs was given by Jerome Salo, superintendent, with prior i t y work being discussed, blacktopping on the boulevard, and the preparation needed before blacktopping in order to make a presentable and lasting job. John Ballone asked if a car could not be placed on the lake, with donations to be sold, as to when the car would sink in the; spring, the proceeds to be used! in portion for city recreati o n,' the project to be sponsored by the Junior Range Chamber of Commerce. A previous request had been denied as the matter was deemed an attractive nuisance according to an attor n e y opinion. It was decided to ask the local attorney of his opinion again and report to Ballone. Ballone also said that the Pierce Street traffic was hazardous as many exceeded the speed limit, \ and with many children in the area, it was considered dangerous. He asked for a remedy to slow down the traffic. John Graves, also agreed that the traffic was hazardous on Pierce Street. Nels Krook asked that some gravel be placed on Mount Joy Drive and the ditching and culverts be cleaned. Wakefield Briefs The Veterans of Foreign Wars will hold a meeting Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Post Home on US-2 and Lakeshore Drive.

The Wakefield Chamber of Commerce will hold its d i n- ner meeting tonight at 6:30 at the Axel Jacobson Restaur ant, on US-2 Texas Political Feud Renewed EL PASO, Tex. (AP) — Democrat Ralph W. Yartaorough leveled sharp criticism at Democrat Gov. John B. Connally and the governor replied in kind Tuesday. Their blunt exchange signaled renewal of a Texas political feud that could put President Johnson in the middle, particularly if the two run for the same office in the next election as some expect. Addressing the Texas AFL- CIO convention here, Yarborough said Connally vetoed a Farmers Union plan for an antipoverty project" in southwest Texas which promised to be one of the finest in the nation. The senator also said the Labor Department holds such projects should pay a $1.25 hourly wage "unless the community could present persuasive evidence that a lower wage was justified." He added: "Many Texas communities want to pay this $1.25 minimum wage. The governor has done everything he can get away with to frustrate their wishes. Yarborough Is sponsoring a measure before Congress to cancel the veto power of state governors over poverty programs. Connally, who has said repeatedly the $1.25 wage is too high for antipoverty projects in Texas, told a news conference in Austin, he vetoed the Farmers Union project because the organization has a political purpose. "I would have done the same thing if it had been the Farm Bureau," he said. The governor also told newsmen he had not reached a decision on his political future. He said many letter writers asked him to run for a third term as governor while others wanted him to seek the Senate seat now held by John Tower, Texas Republican. Yarborough leads the liberal faction among Texas Democrats and Connally the conservative. Forces of the senator failed last year in an attempt to wrest control of the state Democratic convention from Connally. Spokesmen for liberals have been quoted as urging Yarborough to make a race for governor. Under Texas law he could run without resigning as senator. There has been no public comment from Yarborough. During the 1950s, Yarborough ran for governor three times, losing to an opponent backed by conservatives in each case. In 1964, Yarborough beat radio executive Gordon McLendon, a conservative, in a bitter Democratic primary campaign. Connally won handily over liberal Don Yarborough, no relation of the senator, for the nomination for governor. ^ .xsSSSKilfeiK. ^otsssm**. ^' ft IT'S A BEGINNERS COURSE IN "BOY-GIRLSMANSHIP ...with a special emphasis on figures!

Commission Asks Legislature To Regulate Advertising Signs LANSING (AP) — The State Highway Commission urged the legislature Tuesday to regulate advertising signs along state roads "to prevent sign jungles from destroying the attractiveness of Michigan's highways." The commission unanimously adopted a resolution urging the legislature "to pass appropriate legislation when it returns in September because the need for such legislation is real and present." Although the highway department and state lawmakers have truck a temporary working jreement with the U. S. Bureau f Public Roads, the law is ceded, the resolution said, "to larify the department's author- y to remove signs which are laced on the public right-of/ay." The bureau told the highway epartment it would not partic- pate in state highway projects- leaning it will not contribute oward their cost—unless legis- 1925 state placement vas overturned by the Michigan iUpreme Court May 11. enough of an easement within the right of way to allow them to maintain the signs. A substitute bill by Sen. Stanley Rozycki, D-Detroit, follows terms of the agreement worked out with the bureau. The subject is scheduled to be| taken up when the legislature returns Sept. 14. * * * The departmen has removed commercial signs from virtually every highway in the Lower Peninsula over the years. It is under court injunction against removing any more signs in most of the Upper Peninsula. Opponents of the state sign policy complain that in many cases of old highway easements, j rights-of-way vary greatly in| width and often are wider than i is needed for highway maintenance. The commission said it agreed that in some cases signs should j be allowed but that this should be limited to those signs adjacent to a place of business.

Peggy Allen, former legislative secretary, testified she agreed to a fee of $50 for helping state police in their October, 1963, raid on the Steren Assembly Club in Madison Heights. Her appearance ended speculation as to whether she would return from New York. She went there last month and told Michigan authorities she was fed up with the notoriety and threats brought on by the case. Miss Allen said she went to the club after state police gave her $200 in marked bills to spend. She added. she was not permitted to engage in gambling that night because she could not sufficiently identify herself. Miss Allen was to continue testifying today. The trial, before Oakland County Circuit Judge Frederick Ziem, was transferred here after defense attorney Clinton Roeser complained that his client; could not receive a fair trial be cause of publicity given the case. » fS t-l: >,: :* « $ is x- MAD WORLD" iSSSWSSSfS.'KS Starts THURSDAY! 2 BIG HITS!

A aw covering sign Bids on 18 projects were delayed as a result, said highway director Howard Hill. The on these and other projects will be taken next Wednesday, he said. * * * The solution worked out with the federal agency sets up two categories of right-of-way: a strip of land within which no signs would be allowed, and an- outer strip in which such commercial advertising would be permitted. Under the agreement, the state "can proceed with projects on which it can certify that it has sufficient power to control the rights-of-way necessary for the construction, operation and maintenance of the highway," Hill said. He said earlier that the department had to revise and redraw its plans and set up new minimum rights-of-way on the projects involved. A bill by Rep. Dominic Jacobetti, D-Negaunee, is in a house- senate conference committee His bill would allow the state to deed back to sign owners Francis Perlich Gets Degree at Northern BESSEMER — Francis Perlich, son of Mr. and Mrs. FranK T.
