Flournoy offers school equalizing bill SACRAMENTO (U P I) —Another method of equalizing the school burden carried by richer and poorer districts was con tained today in two measures introduced by Assemblyman Houston Flournoy. R-Claremont Flournoy said his bill, which he has introduced in previous sessions, would do away with the present basic school aid requirement that each district re ceives a minimum of $125 per pupil. A companion constitution al amendment would eliminate the $120 minimum in the con stitution. looking at the photograph which came from the collection of the late Mrs. L. O. Hammond.

Kenison) WASHINGTON (UPI)—Overwhelming House approval of a sweeping civil rights bill gave its backers new confidence today that they could get the measure safely past a certain Senate filibuster. After nine days of debate and action on 138 amendments, the House passed the bill Monday night by a vote of 290 to 130. It is designed to wipe out discrimination in voting, public accommodations, employment, education and use of federal funds.

With the possible exception of housing, the measure attempts to meet Negro demands for equality in nearly every field of national life.

U.S. Weather Bureau Noon Forecast A weak weather front on a northeast to southwest line is moving eastward through the Pacific Southwest While there is considerable cloudiness associated with this front no significant precipitation will occur. High pressure following the front is building over the Pacific Northwest and intermountain plateau regions. This will bring gradual clearing to most areas this afternoon and tonight. With the clearing gusty northwesterly winds will affect many areas and especially those open to a northerly direction. These winds will shift to a more northeasterly direction later tonight and Wednesday and continue strong and gusty especially over mountains and down and below canyons. Local areas of blowing dust or sand will occur in exposed locations below canyons and in some desert areas.

The quick agreement on withholding put industry on notice to get ready to translate the tax cut into fatter paychecks. The bill's supporters hope to get the final measure on the President's desk by Feb. 22. with the new withholding rate effective on March paychecks. The action Monday came atj the first meeting of 14 conferees seeking to work out the differences between the Senate and House tax bills.

Forbes said there was "only slight hope" of finding any of them alive. The search was called off tonight, but Forbes said it might be resumed in daylight Wednesday. The three bodies recovered today were the only ones found. The captain, Duncan Stevens, 43, was believed to have been on the bridge when the collision occurred. The other bodies were an officer and an enlisted man. Earlier reports placed t h e number of men aboard at 324, but the navy said tonight that three men believed to have been on the ship had stayed behind at the Jervis Bay naval base.

The storm grounded Britain's Beatles. The rock 'n roll imports had to take a train instead of a plane from New York to Washington. The storm settled over the Mid-Atlantic Seaboard and promised to pile up snows of a half foot in Washington, Philadelphia and Baltimore. All schools were closed in the five-county Philadelphia area. Schools also closed in southern Ohio, five counties in Maryland, 10 counties in Virginia, and suburbs of Washington. Washington's National Airport closed at mid-morning for three trains with office workers who left their cars at home. Commuter railroads put on extra cars today and all city crews w-ere out shoveling, salting, and sanding the streets. The snows were measured at 24 inches deep in Virginia's Bath County.

British invasion again Too much girls may homework, Johnson miss seeing Beatles By JOHN D. PARRY United Press International NEW YORK (UPI) — The Beatles went to Washington today with hopes of meeting two of their fans, Lucy Baines and Lynda Bird Johnson, but the President's daughters decided their homework was more important. The White House announced today that Lucy and Lynda will not attend the Beatles' performance at the Coliseum or a masked ball at the British Embassy, even though they were invited. The Beatles are expected to drop in on the charity ball. "Tonight's a school night," said a White House spokesman, explaining that both of Presi dent Johnson's daughters have a heavy load of homework. The spokesman confirmed that both girls like the Beatles. The British rock 'n' roll sensations left quietly by train this morning when a snowstorm made it uncertain whether their scheduled plane would be able to land at the capital. Heavy details of policemen and detectives were assigned to their departure, but teen-age fans of the quartet failed to show up. Police Surround Hotel The Beatles spent the night at the Hotel Plaza, which was surrounded by police barricades. Their 12th floor suite was watched over by an all- night police detail and one reporter had to go through three security checks before being permitted to speak to one of the Beatles. The long-hairs of the teen set spent part of their last day in New York sightseeing, twisting, meeting the press and local disc jockeys. The win-some four-some — John Lennon, Ringo Starr George Harrison and Paul McCartney — said they had not been invited to the White House but: "We wouldn't mind meeting the President's daughters." The red-hot singing group, who drew the frantic admiration of thousands of teen-age beatleniks and gave the staid Plaza its wildest hours since the fictionalized moppet Heloise rampaged through its carpeted corridors, are scheduled to rub elbows with Washington's diplomatic set. To Attend Ball After their Coliseum show- fall 8,000 seats have been sold out) they are to attend a charity ball at the British Embassy. The ball is sponsored by Ambassador Sir David Ormsby- Gore and his wife and the official word in Washington is "if you can't get to the Coliseum, get to the ball." The ball, selling tickets at $5 apiece, benefits British and American organizations fighting juvenile delinquency.

The French government was reported relieved by Nationalist China's announcement Monday in Taipei, Formosa, that it is breaking diplomatic relations with France and recalling its 16-man mission from Paris be cause of French recognition of Communist China Jan. 27. The Nationalist Chinese move took France out of an embarrassing situation. De Gaulle, al ready under fire from the United States and other allies for recognizing the Peking regime, did not want to make the first move toward severing realtions with Taipei. Communist China had made it clear, however, that it would not go through with diplomatic relations as long as France recognized "two Chinas" — one on the Chinese mainland and the other on the island of Formosa. Quote of Day WASHINGTON — President Johnson, in a statement hailing the approval by the House of the civil rights bill: "The overwhelming passage .. .of the civil rights bill marked an historic step forward for the cause of human dignity in America. It represents a culmination of long months of hard work by men of good will in both parties." Baldwin Hills Relief Bill. The Assembly voted 62 - 2 to send thc measure, with Senate modifications, to Gov. Edmund G. Brown for his signature. Assemblyman Lester A. McMillan, D-Los Angeles, whose district comprises Baldwin Hills voted against the Senate modifications. He warned that "if some relief is not forthcoming to my people by March there are going to be some sparks flying." The bill shot from the Upper Chamber Monday evening on a unanimous 32-0 vote but it had received some major alterations. As introduced by Assemblyman George Wilison, D-Huntington Park, the measure would have allowed insurance com-| panics anywhere in the state to aggregate total of $14.8 million immediately. Taking him at his word, the Senate Judiciary Committee amended the bill to apply only to the Baldwin Hills victims—thus raising an issue of constitutionality. The constitution prohibits class legislation for a particular group. Also, because insurance attorneys indicated they wouldn't pay now until the case was tested in court, the committee gave the bill a direct street to the State Supreme Court. This was done technically by including a provision for a "declaratory judgment" on the constitutionality.

Marcus was lead-off witness at the second day of the change of venue hearing on a defense demand that Ruby be tried in another Texas city for slaying Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President Kennedy. "I have grave reservations whether the defense or prosecution can get a fair trial in Dallas," Marcus said, under questioning by chief defense counsel Melvin Belli. 'I have reservations as to where he can get a fair trial." Ruby appeared calm as he entered the court, in contrast to his tears and nervousness at the start of the change of venue hearing Monday. He said he was reading a book entitled "Collision Course" about the sinking of the liner Andrea Doria in 1956. The change of venue hearing resumed 35 minutes late this morning. Belli was late getting to court. The six-man defense team worked far into the night on strategy for the hearing that was expected to end late Wednesday. Barring a change of venue, the trial was scheduled to start in Dallas next Monday. The defense denied a report that Ruby visited Communist Cuba last year.
