Lewis, an avowed opponent of any restriction, previously had blocked every move by Elward, handling the measure in the House, to get it advanced on the calendar. Until Finley and Elward threatened to filibuster, the birth control controversy had simmered down after Arnold Maremont, IPAC chairman who had pushed the program, was fired from his job by the Senate. Maremont got in trouble when he accused Republican senators of being anti-Negro in proposing to place ceilings on relief checks. When Maremont was in control, the IPAC had approved a plan to furnish birth control information and contraceptives with state money to all women on the aid rolls. Maremont had argued that pub- he aid costs could not be reduced by any great amount without giving birth control devices in an attempt to cut down the number of illegitimate children on Aid to Dependent Children rolls. The IPAC is about to be replaced by a department under the governor's jurisdiction. Bills to bring about this change are before Kerner, who plans to sign them. Hoopeston, 111.
