He snid he will move to have the bill called Up after the Senate has disposed of the question of admitting Alaska and Hawaii to statehood. The bill proposes to set up a Senate-House committee with a staff of Investigators to make year-round studies of government spending.

Mayor Dan Blodgett told th,. Council that Lomilc's Cafe hs; bscn investigated by stale revenue officers, city police and that he and (he city attorney had looked Into the matter of whether or not conditions had changed enough to Issue- the cafe a privilege license. "State revenue officials did not find conditions bad enough to revoke the cafe's liquor permit," Mayor Blodgctt said, "and Police Chief . . . (Cecil) . . . Graves has been investigating conditions them." Oiicf Graves told the Council he had checked the place for 30 days and that everything seems to be going "pretty smoothly." "He . . .
