STATE FAMILY SHOES Depressed Areas Aid Bill Squeaks Through WASHINGTON (UPI)-A $389 500.000 Senate bill to aid areas hard-bit by unemployment headed today toward a probable trimming in the House and a possible veto by President Eisenhower. The measure squeaked through the Senate by a 49-46 vote late Monday after a 53-million-dollar! administration substitute was defeated. 52-43. A proposed 200-miI lion-dollar compromise was re jected, 70-24. The narrow margin of the final Senate vote gave hope to Republicans and conservative Democrats in the House who expected to repeat the success they had last year in chopping about 100 million dollars from the bill. Ei senhower vetoed that measure anyway. Urged Early PaiMge Sen. Paul H. Douglas iD-IU.) chief sponsor of' the bill, had urged early passage so Congress could act if the President again vetoes it. But the 49-46 roll call was far short of the two-thirds vote needed to override the Chiel Executive. A similar bill is under consideration by a House banking subcommittee. It is not expected to come up for floor action for some time. The Douglas bill co-sponsored by 33 other Democrats and 5 Re publicans, would authorize 30C million dollars in loans and 73 million dollars in federal grants to help economically-distressed communities attract new industries. Train Unemployed Workers Also included would be 10 million dollars to train unemployed workers in new vocations and 4'i million dollars for "technical assistance" to depressed areas. The Senate Banking Committee estimated the bill would be of immediate benefit to 112 areas ol chronic unemployment and might help 130 more if conditions get worse. Opponents of the bill maintained the communities would need a lot more than federal aid to get back their economic health. To qualify for the loans and grants, a community would have to have at least 6 per cent of its workers unemployed and have an unemployment rate 6 per cent above the national average for one to three years. Two Republican co-sponsors of the bill — Sens. Jacob K. Javits (N.Y.) and Clifford P. Case (N.J.) —voted against it. Case said the criteria, tightened as a concession to the administration, would mean only "a trickle" of aid to New- Jersey. Total U.S. Production Climbs To Record Rate WASHINGTON (UPD — Government economists estimated to day that the nation's total produc tion of goods and services has climbed to a record 464-billion dollar annual rate. That is the unofficial but relia blc estimate for the first three months of 1959 now being circulated among top-level government officials. , It represents a gain of 11-billion dollars from the 453 billion dollar rcte of gross national product in the last three months of 1958. Moreover, because most prices have been steady, the increase reflects a genuine spurt in the physical volume of production— not just a markup in prices. Record Siie Economy The improvement is better than some government economists had hoped for and it strengthens official forecasts for a 483-billion-dollar rate by the end of the year. The new national output figure also means that the economy has grown to record size. It has expanded for four con­ secutive quarters following the sharp slide from September 1957 to April 1958 during the recession. Gross national product fell to a low rate of $425,800,000,000 in the first quarter of 1958. Although the 464-billion-dollar estimate is still preliminary- March still has a week to run- economists are confident that when all the final tallying is done, there won't be much change. Build Up Steel Inventories Some factors behind the 1959 pickup are: —Hurry-up buying of steel by factories whose inventories are depleted and who are afraid there will be a prolonged steel strike this summer. —Buildup of other inventories by businessmen, many of whom pared them sharply in 1958. —Spending by consumers for goods and services of all kinds has been strong. -Businessmen are spending a little more on construction of new- factories and replacement of old machines and tools. We, the Women AFL-CIO To Battle For Jobless Pay Standards ernors on the executive committee of the National Governors' Conference came out Monday against federal minimum benefits. They said the states should take responsibility for making improvements. Ike Renews Challenge The governors met with the President and three of his cabinet members at the White House to discuss ways to strengthen the federal-state unemployment insurance system. The President renewed the challenge he has made for the last five years to the states. He said he hoped state legislatures would act this year to authorize payments equal to half of the average state wage for a minimum LOS ANGELES <UPI> — Coro-U 26 weeks, ner's surgeons today performed "The President has been e.v an autopsy on the body of Mrs. horting the states to act since Evelyn Gelston. 60.

Levin charged in the Superior Court suit that the couple failed to fulfill terms of a contract concerning production of a television film for a proposed TV series. ier husband's boat.

Charles W. Gels- By Ruth Millet* Come June I'm going to grad uate from high school. That is when our twins are due to get their diplomas. Because they have grown up in the parent participation era, I've gone through school with them — all the way. When I was a child a mother wasn't expected to do much about school, except to send her kids to the teacher with clean hands and ears, give them to understand that if they got in trouble at school they would be in worse trouble when they got home, and help them with their homework now and then. But today, both Mama and Papa are expected to share their children's school experiences not only dutifully but happily. They start out by going to briefing sessions before Junior enters the first grade. There they are told how to prepare their first grader for the big step from home to school. Clean hands and ears and a box of sharpened pencils and a packet of colored crayons aren't enough any more. Junior has to be cmot: lally prepared for his big step and Mama and Papa are given strict orders on how to prepare him. That gets parent participation off t« a flying start, and from then on Mama and Papa are hounded into going to PTA meetings, back- to-school nights where they sit at the kids' desks and listen to teacher, personal interviews with homeroom teachers, and so on. Should Junior misbehave, it is no longer a matter strictly between Junior and his teacher. Mama gets called in for a conference — the inference being that if Junior gets out of line it is Mama's fault. The thing that makes parent participation so difficult to buck is that it is always put on the basis of doing what is right for one's child. And even though a parent might have the sneaking notion that Ju MENTONE-CRAFTCJN nam jKuthanne Shclton. in San Bernar- By ROSEMARY CASSEL Facts Mentone Correspondent Telephone Mentone PY 4-1089 Murdochs Entertain Visitors .Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Murdock: dino, and. family, 1352 Tourmaline ave nue, have as their guests Mrs, Murdock's mother, Mrs. Amy J.

Mitchell said Monday the administration will recommend expansion of coverage to protect 3.200.000 more workers with unemployment insurance. These would consist of about two million employes in firms with one or more workers and 1.200.000 em­ ployes of non-profit agencies. The! law now exampts firms with less than four employes and such nonprofit organizations as charities, nospitals and labor unions. Court Rules For Federal Control WASHINGTON (UPD—The Su preme Court yesterday gave the federal government rather than state agencies the power to regulate sales of "variable annuities," which are being sold as a substitute for regular insurance-type annuities. The variable annuity plans came into being in recent years as an anti-inflation investment. T h e y feature investments of a purchaser's money largely in stocks. The return will vary according to how the stocks fare. These plans have been .under state regulation like regular in furance operations. The court held in a 5-4 decision today that the Securities & Exchange Commis sion shall have the authority to supervise firms operating such plans. The decision overruled two lower courts.

Yet many people assume that all cars today are pretty much the same AiMMiTiuoof in (his respect. This is far from being the case. I can name at least 30 basic differences in the design of our '59 Mercury. Naturally, we feel these differences make Mercury a better car. For example: EXTM STRENGTH STMTS WITH THE F1UME The backbone of every Mercury is the frame. We use a heavy box-type con- strnriion—the heaviest in the industry. Competitors- use frames that arc up to 125 pounds lighter. WE IUU.D QUALITY YOU CAN SEE Compare the way Mercury builds engine hoods. Most competitive cars use what is known as a single-panel con- struciion. This type of hood can lie twisted and turned with the slightest pressure—often flutters and vibrates when the car is in motion. At Mercury, on the other hand, we use a double- panel construction —two layers of steel with the insulation sandwirhed in between. Not only is Mercury 's hood more rigid, but it looks better. VOU FEEL THE QUALITY WITH EVERY STOr... Mercury brakes are the largest in the field-with up to 22% more brake lining than competitive cars. And only Mercury in its field h .is brakes that adjust themselves mechanically. You sa\e money by eliminating periodic adjustments. And you arc safer because Mercury brakes stnv properly adjusted for the life "f the linings. ...MO EVERY TIME YOU TAKE THE WHEEL All 1959 Mercurys have a flexible coupling installed in the steering system. This acts as an insulator—absorbs road shocks that would otherwise travel up to the steering wheel. Mercury, unlike some cars, gives you this with either manual or power steering. WE HAVE PLENTY OF PROOF-THAT THIS IS THE BEST-BUILT CM IN AMERICA TOOAY W'c know it is the greatest Mercury ever designed and built. Never in Mercury's 20-year history have we had so much value in the product itself. Mercury has advantages- everywhere over competition. The four described on this page are only typical. In future messages I'll tell you about doyens more—in styling, comfort, in esery- thing you want in a car."

School Sites Bill To Be Debated Again SACRAMENTO (UPD-The Assembly voted. 41-29. Monday to reconsider its approval of a bill which would give city and county planning agencies the final say on the location of school sites. The vote on reconsideration came after its major opponent. Assemblyman Bruce F. Allen <R- San JoseK said it would "g i v e control of the school system to the city councils or county boards of supervisors" and some of theso would be acting as attorneys for land speculators. The bill.was authored by Assemblyman William Biddick 'D-Stockton>. who pointed out that the| measure once was debated and;, passed and "we should get on with our other business." The measure now goes on the Assembly file for a further debate. Sunrise Service T» Be Htld in Mentone A special Easter Sunrise Service will be held at 6:05 ajn.
