Assemblyman STEW HINCKLEY .... Says I ran across some interesting information that dircctiy affects every one of us. We may not think so, but it docs, and I am going lo pass it on to you. Expenditures on public education account for over 40 per cent of total state and local government disbursements. These cvpenditures have been increasing faster than the rate of increase of any other public service. Property taxes, on an average, provide about 56 per cent of the total outlay Mhile state government provides tlie balance of approximately 35 per cent. There are wide differences between school districts in their expenditures on public schools. This the 1959 Legislature attempted to correct with the so- called "master plan" which called for, among other things, the gradual reduction in num bcr of small school districts. 6 million come 1973. BasicaUy, this is the reason [for aU of the school bills now before us. This is why public school finance may be the most important single issue of this season and the next. WASHINGTON — (NEA) A major attempt is under way to array large elements of organized labor agamst the civil rights package pending in the Senate. This effort has in some measure, fallen on fertile ground. In, consequence, the AFL-CIO, while continuing to support the legislation "without reservation and without delay," is nevertheless highly disturbed. Strong counter moves are being mounted. What gives the drive against the bill among unions such potency is the fact it is led by Alabama's Sen. Lester Hill, a long-time friend of labor and the chairman of the Senate Labor and PubUc Welfare Committee. Hill rose on the Senate floor on Jan. 13 to deliver a blast against the "equal employment opportunity" features of the leg- lislaUon. In substance he charged the measures would undermine union seniority sy.>--- tems, affect so-called referral [(hiring hall) practices, even endanger union representatit -D rights assured under the National Labor Relations Act. distressing to the federation's leadership and somewhat pleasing to Hill. The senator's aides say that while disapproving letters predominate in the mail response, a "surprising number" are favorable, with some union officers penning a heartfelt "amen." A good many ask more information. For its part, the federation has suffered a sizable bombardment from local unions, internationals and the labor press, the puzzled inquiries asking how to answer Lister Hill, the proven friend of labor .who voted against the two regula tory measures union leaders most dislike — the Taft-Hartley and the Landrum-Griffin acts. A substantial though un counted number of local unions clearly have welcomed Hill's assault on the civil rights pack age as justifying and rationalizing their akeady well-developed fears. Particularly in certain of the building trades plagued by marked unemployment, the notion had taken root even before Hill's "round robin" mailing that opening these tmions to Negroes would only perpetuate existing difu and exaggerate culties. Confronted with this very real stir, the AFL-CIO leaders have acted to prevent the cracks in their pro-civil rights stand from widening to distructive proportions. In seeking to answer Hill, the federation could draw upon some "warm-up" practice. Just a month ago in circulated an answer to much similar argu ments advanced by the chief lobbyist against the ci\il rights legislation, John Satterfield, Mississippi lawyer and former president of the American Bar Association. Saterfield currently is secretary-treasurer of the Co-ordin­ ating Committee for Funda- Redlands Daily Facts Wed., March 11,1964 -11 mental American Freedoms, set up in Washington 'to combat the bills on all fronts. Federation lawyers, havingj first framed a reply to Satterfield, prepared then a more de-, tailed, more comprehensively legal argument designed to satisfy thousands of puzzled union men. But this counter-attack against the influential Hill has ljust begun. Rentelearic tarpet shamnooer for only $1 Make your carpets new again!

CPHOLSTEBr SHAMPOO KIT ALSO AVAILABLE Copies of Hill's speech, plus a memorandum from which the speech was taken have since been mailed out by the senator —.with a covering letter on his committee station- I cry — to 30,000 "interested par- tics," mostly officers of local unions acres thse nation. There are today some 70,000 locals, 57,000 of them affiliated with international unions linked to the AFL-CIO.

In terms of pupils this means from 3.8 million now to over mATS IN THE OYIL RIGHTS BILL? (5) CIVIL RIGHTS COMMISSION Extends the commission's life for four years and broadens its powers. The commission investigates alleged infractions in civil righis lows, collects information and serves as a notional clearing house for information about equal protec- tioa of the laws. Several courses of action are |open for providing adequate revenues to met future pub |lic demand for education. These alternatives include (1) climin |ation of some government frills and uimecessary services, (2) i reduction of stale expenditures, (3) reshuffling of the allocation I of tax revnues between the different types of public services, (4) by changbg the tax base. (5) imposition of new types of taxes, or. (6) combination of these. If we continue as we are now headed, property taxes will have to rise precipitously. In fact, it is reliably estimated that property ta.xes required for school districts on a state-wide basis will increase over 350 per cent within the ne.\t ten years. To provide for the expected increases in costs of public school education and the other [programs and activities supported by state and local gov emments, total state and local taxes will rise to over $12 bil- ilion or 2',4 times the total in 1961. So you can see the problem and the background of all the struggle now going on at Sacramento. It is not going to be solved in this session nor prob ably in the next, but will have to be solved if we are to continue as a leader among the states of the union. What do you think? Vour opinions and suggestions are invited. Your letters should be addressed to me at the State [Capitol, Sacramento. Editor's Note: In last week's column the salary of an assemblyman was published as $1500 a month plus expenses. This should have read $S00 a month plus expenses. Travel pictures of Spain were shown to all seventh grade social studies students at Redlands Junior High School in [clock Auditorium Friday afternoon by Professor Roger Anton of San Bernardino Valley Col- [lege. As the history and geography of Spain is being studied this quarter by students in social studies, the colored slides by Mr. Anton were very interesting and appropriate. Included in the slides were typical places I of interest which most tourists sec when they visit Spain. Mr. .Anton emphasized the cultural and historical aspects of the country which give background to the students who study Spanish in the schools. Mss Elaine Ball, social studies teacher, arranged for the program.
