2 Golesburg Register-Mail, Golesburg, 111. Monday, June 24, 1963 Legislature in JmalWeek of Biennial Meet SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)—Taxes, consti lutional amendments, school aid and judges' salaries topped the list of unfinished business as the Illinois Legislature opened the final week of its six-month session today. House Speaker John Lewis and other leaders were j hopeful of coasting ' Illinois to Seek Market In Europe CHICAGO (UP!) - Gov. Olio Kerner Announced today he will lead an Illinois trade mission to Europe some time this fall. Kerner said in a speech at the Chicago International Trade Fair that the mission will spend two weeks at London and Frankfort "We will moke evident to the business and political leaders in two of Europe's major financial centers the increasing role of Illinois and the Midwest in world trade as the result of the St Lawrence Seaway and the increasing use of air cargo facili ties," Kerner said. "We hope to return with tangi ble evidence that Illinois is a good place to do business — not only for the markets of the U.S .A., but for the markets of the world," he said The governor said the mission will use the facilities of the U.S trade centers at London and Frankfort. The mission will be sponsored by the Illinois Committee for Trade Expansion, the Illinois Board of Economic Development, the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Department of Commerce, .the Small Business Administration and private organizations including the Chicago Association of Commerce and Industry. Kerner said he will be accompanied by a group of manufacturers "who arc just entering the export field or who have just recently become involved." "We are primarily concerned with giving the manufacturers on the trip an opportunity to establish effective representation in these developing markets and with stimulating exports of products from medium and small Illinois manufacturing companies to the United Kingdom and the Common Market," he said. The mission will be coordinated by Michael J. Connelly, consultant-to the Illinois Board of Economic Development. Connelly estimated that 60 to 75 Illinois businessmen will participate in the mission. Have You Heard? Mr. and Mrs. John Hurt Jr. and Debbie and Doug have returned from a 2-weok trip to California.

Shower and Wedding Supplies peaceful close Friday, or no later than the daylight hours Saturday. The attainment of this time schedule would mean the traditional clock-stopping to jam in all work before the July 1 deadline would he avoided. Two years ago, the legislature set an overtime record by stopping the clocks before the midnight deadline and not quitting until 24 hours later. Clock-stopping is a fudging device by which the official legis lalive records show bills were passed before the legal deadline. The question of taxes will bring one of the week's flurries when Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago, accompanied by downstale mayors, makes another personal appearance in behalf of his city revenue package. Daley is scheduled to appear Wednesday before the Senate Revenue Committee in an at tempt to salvage bills which would permit city councils to add a half-cent sales lax and impose cigarette and liquor taxes. A few weeks ago, Daley went before the same committee and got slapped down. Proposed constitutional amendments, headed by conflicting ideas for revamping the state's rigitf Revenue Article, are set for ful debate and final votes in the House and Senate. Gov. Otto Kerner has thrown the administration's strength be hind an article which would permit future legislatures to classi fy real and personal property foi tax purposes. Its chances of gaining approva rale as a tossup. Two more constitutional amendments on Ibc fire would remove the barrier against sheriffs anc county treasurers from serving consecutive terms and would re quire annual instead of biennia sessions of the legislature. Another hot question facing the dying legislature is whether to boost state aid to grade and high schools by $32 million over the amount fixed in Kerner's two- year budget. The Senate has the last word on tliis issue and an aceompany : ing bill to finance the increased aid by transferring money from gasoline taxes ordinarily reserved for roads. The assembly also will decide whether Kerner's no-tax increase budget plans are kept Intact. The only general state lax increase bill alive is one to add a penny a package on cigarettes and to use half of the revenue for recreational sites. It has passed the Senate but has been lagging for weeks in the House. A dispute between the House and Senate over judges' salaries under the new Judicial Article may require some joint conferences to work out. The House has been insisting on salaries higher than the Senate wants. House reapportionment, one of the session's biggest political issues, is expected lo clear the Republican-controlled Senate with votes lo spare and to advance to Kernel's desk.
