Revised Revenue Article's Chances Slim This Session CAPITOL COLUMN By BRUCE B. BAKKE United Press International SPRINGFIELD (UPI)-It now appears Illinois will have to await another legislative session for passage of a revenue article revision. A wide-ranging field of proposed revenue article amendments to the state constitution will be considered next week by both houses. But, because there is so little agreement on the form such an article should take, there appears to be little chance anything will be passed before the legislators go home for the final time this session. Rep. Paul Elward, D-Chicago, sponsor of an administrative' pro- PERMANENT WAVE SPECIAL!

But, he said, "If I was to bet on it, you'd have to give me odds." The administration would allow property in a given category to be taxed at an equal rate. For example, all farm property would be taxed at the same rate—but this rate might be different from the tax rates on railroad property, or on industrial property. The administration measure has 62 co-sponsors,' and Elward said these backers each were trying to bring in an extra vote. Future Dim in Senate But even if the measure should win House approval, it's future in the GOP-dominated Senate would be dim. "There's not a big public demand for a revenue article this session because we're not raising taxes," Elward said. "If we were hitting the voters with a big tax increase—then I think it would be easier to pass a revenue article." One of the main criticisms of the Kemer bill by Republicans is that it does not mention an income tax. Some legislators hold that an income tax is a necessity in any proposed new revenue article—and some say any revenue article should specifically prohibit income taxes. Strongly opposed to the administration revenue proposal is House GOP Floor Leader W. J.

CAUTIOUS CYCLIST—Smiling gratefully, young Steve Rooncy accepts an unexpected bicycle safety award from Mrs. A. II. Telford, president of the Altrusa Club. Patrolman Lester Freeman, Mrs. Telford and Harry McClurg, president of the Knox County Safety Council, spent five days searching for a cyclist who would qualify for the award. They found Steve riding Sunday evening and after following him a few blocks, they decided unanimously to award him with a trophy for his adherence to safety rules. The three judges will search for more cautious riders during the remainder of June, designated as Bicycle Safety Month.
