'.'. -*v X, COV^at PROCEEDINGS. D Permit Card Shift Draws the Support of Council Over a Zone Proposal. TO HEARING IN CAPITAL City Will Be Represented There Monday—Extend Auditorium Concessions Contract. * * LIFE’S LIKE THAT. THE KANSAS CITY TlAtES. SATURDAY. JULY 16; 1935. Thp city council voted last night to support a plan ior some iare rises by the Kansas City Public Service company in preference to a zone fare proposal A hearing will be heard Monday by the Missouri Public Service commission in Jefferson City, and the council voted to have the city represented by a member of the city counselor’s office. An Increase Is Likely. The council action was to favor a 6-month trial of the proposed changes. Councilman Walter R. Scott said the commission already has indicated that fare increase may be granted. He pointed out that the résolu tion was only to favor one plan over another in case the commission deems an increase necessary. The proposed fare change would leave the basic fare at 20 cents but would abolish the ISVz- cent token. The present weekly permit card of $1.25 plus 5 cents a ride would be changed to 90 cents plus 10 cents a ride. The 10-cent fare for high school stu dents would be raised to 15 cents. Harpy S. Davis said he thought the council should be studying a future solution of the transit problem. Hit by Motor Car Usage. *'An occasional increase in rates is not the answer,’' jie said. “We are just going around in circles. Patronage of transit systems has decreased everywhere because everyone is riding motor cars. If we made the fares here 5 cents and ran busses every three minutes the patronage would still fall off." The approval of a 5-year concessions contract for the Municipal Auditorium was held up two weeks more by the council, and Reed O. Gentry requested the city manager’s office to study the feasibility of city operation of concessions. An ordinance before the council w’ould sward the contract to B. & L. Concessions, Inc. Gentry said the contract had been a subject of discussion in the council for a year, and he didn’t see how two weeks more time could make much difference. Opposes City In Business. Charles C. Shafer, jr., said he wasn’t in favor of the,city getting into any other kind of business unless it w^as absolutely necessary. On a question, Graham Watt, acting city manager, said the extended contract with B. & L. would end July 31. He said it was the sixth extension since the old contract expired. Gentry’s motion to hold action won a 5-to-4 vote with Shafer, Joseph M. Nolan, Harry S. Davis and Mayor Bartle voting against it. K petition was received irom alxmt thirtv «sidínts requestlnsr that Walnut street from Fifty-ilrst to Fifty-nrst terrace be resurfaced and that it be made l-wav.

Contracts totaling almost million dollars for construction of parts of the Broadway bridge project were approved by the city council yesterday afternoon. The first, a $1,285.695 contract with the Union Construction company, is for construction of the Richards road extension north from the bridge alongside the Municipal Air Terminal to U. S. 71. A second ordinance approved a $574,217.50 contract with the List & Weatherly Construction company for construction of bridge contract No. S, which incites the Burlington railroad “For a small fee I can be persuaded to blow out a fuse!” Reds Reported in High Jap Government Posts. (Service of the New York Times.) Tokyo, July 15.—Japan’s chief security officer reported to the cabinet today that Communists occupy positions in all important government ministries here. ' Goichiro Fujii, director of the Public Security Investigation bureau, which is, similar to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, warned the nation that the Communists’ primary objective is to destroy the friendly ties that now link Japan and the United States. He told the government that the new Communist tactic of stressing peace and patience, already had softened public resistance to the Red movement in Japan. overpass and pier No. 4 for the bridge. The council also passed an ordinance which authorizes the director of public works to enter into an agreement with the Burlington railroad for construction of the overpass over railroad property. The office of the city manager reported that w’ork oh. the bridge is on schedule and th'at ’it was necessary that these c'onlracts be awarded immediately sq that work could begin. Work is expected to begin on the Richards road extension within ten days; ------------•------------MARRIAGE LICENSES. Istued in Kansas City. Willard H.

The vote was 5 to 4. The resolution had been submitted by Thomas J. Gavin, referred to the finance-committee, reported back to the council without recommendation and held two weeks for an agreement on provisions. Return Is Desired. When it was read last night, Walter R. Scott asked that it be returned to the committee. Gavin objected and said it had been on the docket a month. He called for a vote. Harry S, Davis said he could see no reason to wait. Charles C. Shafer, jr., said the resolution stated that the city had not had an audit in fifteen years. He said this was not true—that an audit had been taken every year. Gavin said the yearly audit was only a check on money received, allotted and spent. “I am puzzled by this resolution," Scott said. “We have an audit every year and it costs us $12,000. Then we -got this shotgun resolution from Mr. Gavin. The committee was puzzled. Mr. Gavin said he did not expect to find anything wrong with the finances. We were jstill puzzled so we sent it back to the council without recommendation. The annual audit by Ernst & Ernst Is now being worked on. The mayor has appointed a commission^ to analyze services, don’t see why w^e should spend who-knows-how-much-money on something like this which leads nowhere and covers everything.” Suggestion From Citizens. Gavin said bis resolution had not been conceived quickly. He said several citizens had suggested it. We are in financial trouble and it is rtb secret,” Gavin said. In this position we need an audit to show where we are. Audits are worth money. They find it for you. An audit and analysis would show us things We need to do in next year’s budget. The resolution does not compel the mayor to obtain the audit at any specific time. It just authorizes him to do so in the best way he sees fit to use.” Shafer; .moved that the measure,be amended to delete the words, “whereas there has been no independent audit of the financial condition of the city of Kansas City within recent years." Reed O. Gentry moved to amend the title of the resolution and two paragraphs. He said each councilman had a copy of a substitute resolution which would authorize the mayor to determine the cost of such an analysis. Shafer made a point of order saying it was all right to amend an amendment, but not the title or the intent. Rules Book Employed. There was a debate on parliamentary procedure in which Gavin reached into a desk drawer and waved a copy of “Robert’s Rules of Order for Deliberative Assemblies.” Gentry withdrew his motion to amend. The vote on the Shafer amendment was 7 to 2, with Gavin and Joseph M. Nolan dissenting. Scott again asked for a week for study. Gavin again asked Week.s Construction Co. Submits Lowest Bid for Station. A bid of $314,675 was the lowest of seven received yesterday for the construction of a fire and police station unit at the Municipal Services center, Antioch road and Thirty-ninth street, North. The low bid was by the Weeks Construction com pany, 1814 Harrison street. It is the first contract for î building at the center. The unit will include space for four fire trucks and an ambulance. It will have a police station with two cells and a first aid station The building will be 198 by 122 feet. CASABLANCA IS CALM AGAIN. Riot Toll Is n Killed Woimdedr and Casablanca, Jiily 15.(AP)— Quiet was restored here tonight after Moroccan and European mobs went bn a rampage and took over the European quarter of this bustling port city for twelve hours. Official figures showed «evèn- teen persons were killed and sixty-five wounded in a day and night of riot action and a^^bombing by Nationalist terrorists which triggered the tempers of enraged Frenchmen. Tonight a 9 p. m. to 5, a. m. curfew was enforced in the terror-ridden city, which for months has been kept tense by independence-seeking Nationalists. — ---—n-----•------—r-— If you have property to sell or & service , to 'offer, taUt to the million readers of The Star through a Star Want Ad—Dial BA. 5500.-^4v.
