The vote was split, with Councilman Robert 4 Osborne and Howard Rilea in opposition. The Oakland Chamber of Commerce had appealed to the council to make the request to the port because of r build a promised headquarters in Oakland, would instead expand its office space in San Francisco.

Here, he said," the school board hopes for some Teiiefonrthefcegisla Only Mayor John H. Reading came out in full support of the school board s plea for n- nancial help. JHe approached the board several months ago Committee Gives OK; to Bridge "Boost Continued from Page 1 doing a good job, "but now Is not the time to abandon them." BART Gen. Mgr." B. R. Stokes told the committee that the district's deficit is $151 million, but that $26 million has been received from the Federal Government. Stokes said that the bonding capacity of the bridges already is being used to build the transbay tube but that the Bay Bridge cannot be used for further bonding without an increase in tolls. the only opposition to the measure today came' fr6m Virgil Anderson, lobbyist for the State Automobile Association, who declared: "The motorist does not have the obligation to pay this new toll increase." . Sen. Hugh M. Burns, D-Fresno, emphasized, that the bill provides a "hunting license" for BART to seek the 10-cent increase from the Toll Bridge . Authority, which is headed by Gov. Ronald Reagan. ; . f Hovercraft Needed The United States is spending millions to develop hovercraft vehicles for such versatile jobs as flood and rescue work, ar.tisubmarire warfare and amphibious assault. BART Even Mayor John H. Read- ing, who pressed for the council's action, admitted that BART had failed to meet its "promises to the public," especially in building a headquarters building at the Lake M e r r i 1 1 subway station, Eighth and Oak Streets. "But there's a good chance of losing it (the headquarters) to San Francisco," Reading said. "If we're going to salvage this for Oakland, we're going to have to take action." Even councilmen who sup ported the action quesTionebT the council's role. - Both Councilmen Paul Brom and Felix Chialvo wondered to offer city aid toward easing local unemployment problems by improving educational facilities. The school board took him up by asking for the sp rial increases, allowed under -the eity-eharter.-- The mayor failed to get enthusiastic support from the council yesterday. Both Councilmen Robert Osborne and Paul Brom w o n-dered how the council could "morally" levy even part of the school tax increases which voters had turned down. School board members rgued-4haL4h&-citycharte.r . permits such special school taxes, and, therefore, they couldn't be considered being aSamst toe ml1 of 0,(5 PP1 But if-the-school board had- a sad story to tell, City Manager Jerome Keithley had one he portrayed as just as sad at least as far as the city-was concerned. In great detail, Keithley described how he arid thccoun-cil budget committee are truggling to-hold city taxes-to- present levels by tough budget trimming. The city manager said he wished he had the elbow room tn include another five cent or more in levies to pay for urgently needed municipal services. His lengthy recital of municipal financial problems prompted School Board Mem-beFsSeymour Rose to ask ironically: "Mr. Keithley, how much can we let you have?" A similar story was told by Councilman Felix Chialvo, chairman of the council budget committee. He cited city efforts to trim one or two cents from the perding budget and said he could neither "favor nor d i s f a v o r" the school . board's request for help. Reading quipped, "Perhaps (we should just say we'resym pathetic?" Councilman Osborne v said, "I'll vote for that." - Chialvo added he felt any school support from the city would be "going against the wishes of the people." Reading adjourned the meeting pending action by the Legislature. " , , Munck agreed, .saying yesterday's meeting was purely "exploratory", and that the board and council should meet arrain u-hpn the Ipcislativo Tiir-. ture became more clear. But, he emphasized, the school expansion needs will still require help from the city. Off ice whether the Port of Oakland, an autonomous city agency, should not initiate the proposal, rather than await a council request. As it turned out, the council merely "concurred" with the Chamber" of Commerce's request that the port be asked to start negotiating on the proposal with BART. Osborne, however, strongly opposed the action because, he charged, BART had failed to meet promises it had made to the public in the bond issue which launchea thepfojei Councilman Fred Maggiora brought the dispute to a head by saying the council had "to make the best of a bad situation" and pressed for the vote. The "concurring" action left out a previous proposal that the port also build a transportation center beside the BART headquarters which the . port would lease to 'RRT. Bay Govt.

The governor declared that - he would sigrr a- bill-authorizing abortions in these situations: , Where the physical or mental health of the mother is threatened.

It has rested on the inactive file since May 8 because Beilenson has not been able to muster 21 votes for the measure. ' The governor's reluctance played a major, role in keep ing the proposal from being passed by the Senate1. But Reagan left the door-open for approval of the strong Beilenson measure. He was asked at his press conference yesterday whether he : would veto ihe Beilenson bill. "Don't puTy feet in concrete yet on this," he replied. The governor said he cannot justify "the taking of the unborn life simply on the supposition that it is going to be less than a perfect human being." He explained that this would not be a far step from deciding after birth "that we will arouLQsjepeDplewho should be allowed to live or not." y 4,J to 10 pis . ssbi sv w m . m m . m sssi aWBSt"Jvsrm u I 1 , ' I : 1 . fl V :r ., ..n,, 4 HAROLD (SLIM) JENKINS ' Hit club was a landmark Rites Set For Slim ns Continued from Page 1 fectionate title of "mayor" through his civic activities In the West Oakland neighborhood.
