Longer Trucks May Appear On State's Four-Lane Roads SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP)-The Illinois Mouse has passed a bill to permit trucks 65 feet long to operate on four-lane highways in Illinois. The limit now is 60 feet. The House referred the bill back to the Senate Wednesday night for concurrence in a minor ' amendment. The vote was 124-29, Rep. Ralph Smith, R-Alton, said the bill restricted the trucks to four-lane highways to avoid passing problems from other traffic. Rep. Paul Elvvard, D-Chicago, opposed the bill because the trucks "would rip a lot of city and county roads to pieces" getting to four-lane routes. The House, clearing away dozens of relatively noncontroversial measures, also approved bills to create a seven-member pharmacy board in the Department of Registration and to increase marriage license fees in Cook County from $5 to $10. Crime Bill Killed Rejected by the House was an attempt to amend a bill dealing with the state criminal code to spell out syndicated crime. The House also refused to endorse two bills which Republican backers said were aimed at reducing election fraud in Chicago. The bills called for an appointive interim commission to have supervision over both Chicago and Cook County election machinery and for a permanent, elected commission to take over the duties in 1965. Rep. George Dolezal, R-Berwyn, said the bills were "not a panacea to prevent election frauds but they would help take away some of the stigma from Chicago that was created by the last two elections." Democratic leaders said the bills were objectionable because they would be mandatory in Cook County and permissive in the rest of the state. The House passed, by a 143-7 vote, a bill appropriating $500,000 for promotion of tourism in Illinois. The bills were referred back to the Senate for settlement of a House proposal to place the tourist commission under the' Illinois Board of Economic Development. Originally, the commission would have come under the Conservation Department. House approval also was voted for a bill empowering the Illinois Building Authority to consider construction of seven regional state office buildings around the state at a total cost not to exceed $8 million.

(AP) — Birth control, once a burning question, is about to make a quiet exit from the Illinois Legislature. An, agreement reached Wednesday ended a threatened filibuster and paved the way to pacify all sides by having a legislative commission study the controversial issue. Sen. Morgan Finley and Rep. Paul El ward, Chicago Democrats, had threatened to tie up the legislature with a filibuster in the final days because House Speaker Johrt Lewis, R-MarshaU, insisted he would not call for passage an antibirth control bill. Sponsored originally by Finley, the bill sought to restrict the Il : linois Public Aid Commission's birth control program to married women living with their husbands. Urider a compromise agreed to by Elward and Finley with Lewis and Gov. Otto Kerner, the bill Have You Heard That Miss Eloise Allen, 757 N.
