Ralph Anderson, chairman of the Knox County Nursing Home Committee, told board members the cotffinittee was searching tor an architect to begin work on plans for the proposed new home. The board authorized an expenditure of $1,000 last month as a retainer fee. Ready to Ask Aid State's Attorney Don Woolsey told the board that the project is at the stage of applying for federal funds for advanced planning. This money will be used for architect's work and similar projects before the plan can be offered to the people in a referendum. Woolsey said if the referendum failed, the money did not have that other federal funds under the HilMiurton Act can be ob* tained from the federal govern* ment as a grant for the actual construction. Methods Perplex Lynn A group from the Taxpayers' Association of Lynn Township appeared at the meeting and expressed concern over the difference in taxation methods of Kno* and Henry counties. They are in a school district with land in both counties. Irving Anderson said the taxpayers in his area in Knox County were in difficulty because the valuation in this county was high, to be repaid, but if construction but low in Henry County. But to began, then the federal government would demand the repayment.

Rails, Unions Poles Apart On Issues Threatening Strike EDITOR'S NOTE — Proposed work rules changes that would eventually eliminate 65,000 jobs are at the core of a threatened nationwide railroad strike. The lines contend the jobs are unnecessary. The unions insist they must protect the jobs of their numbers. By ROGER LANE AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP)-A Chicago- Denver train, taking hours to cover 1,034 miles, changes engine crews eight times en route, roughly every 130 miles. Employes average two hours in the cab, collect one and one- quarter day's pay. Railroads contend such use of manpower and payroll money is wasteful and have vowed to change the work rules that require it. Unions representing the men who would lose their jobs have threatened a nationwide strike to protect them. For the railroads, $600 million a year paid for what they consider make-work jobs — "featherbedding"—is at stake. Meads 65,000 Jobs At issue for nearly 200,0p0 firemen, engineers, switchmen, conductors and brakemen are the jobs Of up to 65,000 of them. About 40,000 of the jobs that would be eliminated are held by firemen. This is the single biggest rub, although there are scores and scores of others, all wrapped up in the disputed work rules, in effect management - union contracts. Railroad executives say the roles of firemen on freight train diesel locomotives and in switchyard service are obsolete. The need for firemen, they argue, disappeared starting about 20 years ago. That was when automatically fueled diesel engines began to replace coal-burning locomotives whose fires were stoked by firemen. Unions contend that although his title is outmoded, the fireman is important as a copilot for the engineer. "The helper acts as a second pair of eyes, a lookout/' a union spokesman said. "He performs a safety function." Cites Death Rate H. E. Gilbert, president of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, says 190 train crewmen were killed in accidents in a recent year. On most work rule points, a presidential railroad commission reported to President Kennedy in February 1962 that it agreed with the management position. The commission studied railroad operating practices for 15 months. Simon H. Rifkind, a former federal judge who headed the commission, was emphatic about firemen, holding they no longer were needed. "Of that I'm certain. I went out and saw for myself," Rifkind told newsmen. The commission recommended a halt in hiring of firemen for freight and yard service duty, dismissal within a year of 13,000 firemen with less than 10j ^eara service and release by attrition death, retirement and the like— of 27,000 others. Offer Dismissal Pay Displaced firemen would get dismissal pay of up to 60 per cent of regular checks for up to 36 months, preference in rehiring and two years of retraining at railroad expense. Gilbert rejected the commission report as "harsh, inhumane and retrogressive." He assailed a recommendation for arbitration of conflict over changes in sizes of train crews. "You can submit working conditions to binding arbitration sometimes," said Gilbert, "but you don't submit the life and death of jobs." It recommended abandonment of the 100-mile day, once widely regarded as a fair day's work, as no longer realistic. It proposed 160 miles instead. Unions answered that the com- New Law on Mobile Homes Owners of mobile homes are now required to affix a "display title" on their homes as a result of emergency legislation passed by the General Assembly. Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier today reminded owners of such properties that violators are subject to a fine of $25 a day for each day of violation beginning July 1 when the law became effective. The display title is an exact reproduction of the regular motor vehicle certificate of title, except it contains no information about any existing lien, Carpentier said. Fee is $1. Mobile home owners who presently hold a certificate of title may apply for the display title only. To assure prompt delivery of certificates, home owners should enter in their applications the actual serial number of the unit, Carpentier said. ^Ar^heripri^rision of the new legislation requires mobile home court owners to rejport to the Department of Revenue by July 1 the names of all occupants of the court whose units did not have the display title. It also requires to report within 24 hours names of new arrivals not having the display title. mission position would mean longer hours and less pay. Engineers would take pay cuts of up to 80 per cent, they said. UNCLE HARRY SAYS you eat fresh vegetable for ninety years you can be sure you won't die young.
