By NORMAN KEMPSTER WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Nixon unveiled today details of his revenue sharing plan for urban development—a $2 billion, a year program spread over 247 metropolitan areas but focusing chiefly on decaying big cities. The plan would give city halls almost total authority to decide how to spend federal money. It also would eliminate as identifiable categories most of the urban aid programs originated in Democratic administrations of Harry S Truman, John; F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. In a report to Congress, Nixon said: "Federal grant-in- aid programs for urban development have simply not achieved the purposes for which they were established/'-' j Nixon said the bulk of the money—$1.6 billion in the first full year—would be distributed among urban areas with a city or cities of 50,000 population surrounded by identifiable suburbs. The formula, Nixon said, would "take into account the number of people who live in an • area or city, the ' degree of. overcrowding, there, the condition of its housing units, and the proportion of - families whose income is below the poverty level." Most of America's population lives in standard metropolitan areas, but Nixon said the formula would insure that most of the money "would be channeled into the cities which need it most." Folded. into; the revenue sharing program would be funds now earmarked for urban renewal, model cities, water and sewer grants; and rehabilitation loans. Nixon's budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 calls for about $1 billion in spending of school properties up to date prior to advertising any of the property for sale. The Board approved the request made by the Kempton Fire Dept. for the use of the well on the Kempton School ground pro-, perty on a day to day basis. They also approved requests of Mrs. Mary Pitner, Counselor, to attend a North Central Regional Guidance Counselors Workshop at Kalamazoo, Mich., March 18 and 19. Miss Barbara Pickett is to attend a conference on the Junior High Middle School at Indiana State University March 19. Also, Miss Pickett was asked to participate In the Taylor Township career day Wednesday, March 24. In other business the Board of Ed. approved the rental of school buses if needed to transport students to cetassel corn; approved the purchase of lawn mowers for school maintenance; and approved the purchase of a flag from Boy Scout Troop #592. The scouts will see that the flag is properly displayed on nine national holidays in 1971.

The winners and awards for the science fair will be made public Friday night. (Staff Photo by Eldon Cage) By HORTENSE MYERS INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) - The drunk driver, blamed for half of Indiana's traffic deaths, may find his motoring privileges, curbed by a new law and a bill ! on the way to becoming a law. Governor Whitcomb Thursday; signed a bill that will lower the percentage of alcohol in the blood considered to be indicative the motorist was under the influence of intoxicating liquor. The old level was .15 per cent, by weight; the new level will be .10 per cent. The new law becomes effective when the 1971 legislative acts are- promulgated, probably July or August. The House today received from the Senate a companion bill to the blood alcohol measure. The Senate voted 38-6 Thursday to, strengthen the 1969 implied consent law. The two- year-old .law has not achieved the expected \ impact in - getting drunk drivers off the highway. Repeals 1969 Law The 1971 bill would repeal the first law and replace" it with one providing that a motorist, suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or. drugs, should be offered a chemical test. If the test is refused, he is 'to be arrested.' If a court finds the refusal was knowingly made because of the state of intoxication, the judge "shall recommend"''to"the Bureau of Motor Vehicles that the motorist's privilege to drive be suspended for.a year. The new law, setting the more realistic level of pre-" sumed intoxication, and the implied consent bill, would bring Indiana into conformity with the federal traffic safety standard on j alcohol. The Senate Thursday also battled over the Bureau of Motor Vehicles from another standpoint—its management. The Senate' Finance Committee recommendation that the BMV and , its -192 serai-inde­ pendent license branches, oper? ated mostly by county political chairmen, be changed into a semi-merit state agency was adopted 49-0. But first a minority .report that would have delayed acceptance of the report until after the Senate, sitting as a committee of the whole, heard from BMV commissioner Trudy Etherton, . and others, was defeated 29-19. - The proposed changes would put the branch managers on a merit system and would bring the branch employes under state control. The measure also would require nearly $4 million state money to operate, in addition to fees, and this added cost may be a barrier to its passage. Ele tion Bills Favored The Senate Thursday also ad-- |vanced to final reading a bill that would add the offices of [U.S. senator and governor to those chosen in direct primary and received a recommendation from the Senate Elections Committee for passage of a bill limiting pre-election campaigning. The Senate adopted a committee report that completely strips a bill on elections and limited to all political advert} ing to a 40-day period prior any election. ; - The proposed law would say: "No paid . political advertising shall be displayed, distributed or. broadcast prior to the fortieth day preceding the general election, primary election or city election," . " Sen. Charles E. Bosma,- R- Beech Grove, Senate Elections Committee chairman, said the 40-day limit would tend to limit political campaigning to a shorter period than at present. He said he felt that such a curb on the time of campaigning was essential to the success or a direct" primary bill of which he and Sen. Lawrence Borst, R- Indianapolis, are authors. . This direct primary bill advanced from second reading to final reading in- the Senate Thursday, after some minor amendments. The bill, as it now awaits final action, place the nominations for U.S. Senator and governor under direct primary, rather than by political convention, as at present. Indiana has a hybrid system for selecting its state candidates, in which some nominees are chosen in an early May primary and others in June party conventions.
