The member who reported the differences of opinion said "a lot of people may be disappointed" in the report because it will make the point that there Is no easy answer and no quick solution. Major recommendations will cover job training, better education and better housing, he said. The commission's investigation shows conditions in many city slums are "unbelteveable"—far worse than most Americans believe, he said. A source close to the commission said Monday the panel will ^ recommend that local police deg partments establish special of- f5>, fices to improve their relations & with slum residents. t*.*s»' g Under the proposal, he said, d the federal government would dj supply 90 per cent of the funds £j for salaries of "community £! service officers." 5!

Kennedy, once appeared a likely choice for the Illinois Democratic party's nomination for either governor or U.S. senator. Put shortly after Illinois Democratic leaders announced their choice Tuesday of a Shriver-less slate, the rumor spread quickly in Washington that President Jphnsoa would nominate the director of the Office of Economic Opportunity for the Paris jwst. Ill Austin, Tex., White House press secretary George Christian said he had no information on moves involving Shriver. An OEO spokesman said there was no truth to the rumors. It was understood, however, that President Johnson offered Shriver the Paris post several ago but Shriver said he not want to maJ^e up his independent at the end of 1963. Almost all of them were born in Kenya and have never seen Britain, India or Pakistan. The bill allows the government to set an immigration quota of 1,500 a year plus dependents on British citizens born outside of Britain whose parents t ax . also were not native-born, Critics charged the bill was racist and a breach of Britain's obligations to her overseas citizens. Home Secretary James Callaghan told Commons it "must face the fact" that a million members of minority groups in former colonies had British passports and might descend on Britain. Callaghan made one concession to the critics, Reversing himself, he said citizens refused admission would have the right of legal appeal.

Mill" OVERALL—FRAMED PICTURES I mind at the time, The President is said to have told Shriver he would not fill the post immediately, In an Associated Press interview a little more than a year ago, Shriver indicated he would not be adverse to being named to an ambassadorship. Illinois Democratic party leaders chose state Atty, Gen, William G. Clark to be the par* ty's nominee for U,S. senator and Lt. Gov. Samuel H, Shapiro for the governorship race, Through a spokesman la the Office of Economic Opportunity, Shriver said he was not offered either nomination. He did not go to Chicago during the weekend to ask the party's backing for either post. CJark will oppose Republican incumbent Sen. Everett M. Dirfcsen, who has announced he'll seek re-election and who has been friendlier to Johnson than many others in the Senate, including Democrats. Some Capitol Hill sources s&id they felt that if Johnson hgd backed Shriver for either toe governor or Senate nominajtj.ons Illinois party leaders v o u 1 d have namisJ him to the slate.
