WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FIVf v 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 cari;ig for the boys on the 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. Mackie said the petition was u n called for and just a n o t h er 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 who 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- called for, and Mackie agreed, official and that several -men Hanson, Nunimaker and Linn will be available for park work voted yes: iin the city at no cost to the Four bids were opened on six'city.

Yarborough 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 hisr 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.

'"/ can't decide whether I should go to college before or after I go to Viet Nam!" 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 struck a temporary working agreement with the U. S. Bureau of Public Roads, the law is needed, the resolution said, "to clarify the department's authority to remove signs which are placed on the public right-of- way." The bureau told the highway department it would not participate in state highway projects- meaning it will not contribute toward their cost—unless legislation is enacted. A 1925 state law covering sign placemen was overturned by the Michigan Supreme Court May 11.

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 clients could not receive a fair trial because of publicity given the case. Bids on 18 projects were de- .ayed as a result, said highway director Howard Hill. The bids on these and other projects wil be taken next Wednesday, he said. * * * The solution worked out with the federal agency sets up two categories of right-of-way: strip of land within which no igns would be allowed, and ari- outer strip in which such com mercial advertising would be permitted. Under the agreement, the state "can proceed with pro jects on which it can certify tha it has sufficient power to contro ;he rights-of-way necessary for the construction, operation and maintenance of the highway,' Hill said. He said earlier that the depart ment had to revise and redraw its plans and set up new min imum rights-of-way on the pro jects involved. A bill by Rep.
