SPRINGFIELD, HI. (AP)-The Illinois House passed today a Republican-backed bill to elect two stale Supreme Court justices from Chicago and one from the Cook County suburban area under the new judicial article. All Republicans voted for it as the measure was approved 89-84 and advanced to Gov. Otto Kerner. Democrats were solidly opposed to it. As the judicial article stands, Cook County will elect three high court justices from the county at large. The bill would change this by choosing one Judge from the south half of Chicago, one from the north half and the third from suburban territory. Republicans figured they would have a good chance of electing a judge from the suburban area. If all three judges were elected from Cook County at large, the heavy Democratic vote majority in Chicago possibly could win all three posts. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Donald D. Carpenticr, R-East Moline, son of Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier. Sheriff Jones Names Deputy Sheriff Max E. Jones this morning announced the appoint' ment of Marvin Cramer, former member of the Abingdon Police Department, as a deputy sheriff. He is moving to Galesburg and will begin his duties July 1. The appointment fills a vacancy in the deputy staff caused by the recent resignation of Richard (Dick) Thomas, due to health. Thomas became a deputy May 15, 1962, under the then sheriff, Edward 0. Isaacson, and continued in this capacity when Jones took over last December. Items Are Taken A quantity of copper wire, staples, nails, galvanized wire and 30 gallons of oil were reported taken from property on U.S. 150, about Vh miles east of Knoxville. Glenn Symonds of rural Victoria, owner of the property that is being razed, told the sheriff's office that persons have been helping themselves to this material tliis week. through the proceedings, the Republican-controlled committee voted' 9-7, Wednesday to dump the measure for the second time. It was also the second time this month that Daley put in an appearance for the bill and was slapped down. The bill would have permitted city councils to double the current half-cent sales levy and use 50 per cent of the revenue to cut property taxes. Daley and the other mayors formed a steady, two-hour parade of witnesses trying to convince the committee that Illinois cities need more money to meet salary increases and demands for im proved services. Concentrating his position on the argument that the legislature does not know Chicago's problems, Daley said: "Give us permission to have home rule legislation so we may make Chicago one of the great cities of the world." Referendum Rejected Before the tax paclcage was buried, the committee rejected an amendment offered by Sen. Arthur Sprague, R-La Grange, to require a referendum vote in adopting a sales tax boost Criticizing the amendment, Daley said that the "easiest way to shun responsibility is to put a referendum on it." With additional income from a higher sales tax, Daley said, "a good mayor could save 75 per cent of this tax package to reduce property taxes." In a sharp exchange with Sprague, Daley was asked if he thought Chicago should have a "true home rule character." "Sure," retorted Daley. "Perhaps we ought to be a state, a separate state." Joseph Meek, president of the Illinois Retail Merchants Association, and officials of two other statewide organizations lined up against the tax proposals, which passed the House last week. A similar set of bills was defeated earlier tlus month by the Senate committee. Meek said that more sales taxes would hurt Illinois border city merchants in competition with surrounding states with lower levies. 2 Galesburg ReglsWr-Moil, Galesburg, 111.
