Rough Spots in Uncharted SPRINGFIELD, lit. (AP) —Experts think there are flaWs lurking in the tight package of laws enacted by the 73rd General Assembly to help start the new Illinois ju- •JHHnl article working .tan. 1, Sen. Alan Dixon, D-Bcllevillc, chairman of the Judicial Advisory Council which served as architect Of the package and guide of its passage through the assembly, said, "I'm sure we erred some place." Errors are expected because the legislature was working on some areas uncharted for Illinois. A Judge can run for re-election ori his record without an antagonist. A brand new system of appellate courts is set up. For the first time, judges will be elected with the title of Appellate Court judge. When the new judicial system starts, however, the public is not likely to notice a difference in the courts. Lawyers will be able to spot the change more quickly. Judges will be most affected, by the legislation at the start. . "The system will be so tremendously improved in five years, you won't remember how bad it is now," Dixon said. "It took 100 years to get fouled up," he added. "Give it five years to get straightened up. By 1960, we'll have the best court system in the nation." Now that the legislature has finished its preliminaries to introduction of the long-awaited sys­ tem, the courts wilt take hold as rule-makers to carry the ball. The Supreme Court is certain to recommend a new package of laws to the 1985 General Assembly after a year of experience in working with the new system. The aim of the new judicial article of the Illinois constitution is to unify all courts in a streamlined system; to use judges more efficiently; to take them out of politics; to eliminate friction and controversy between courts and the consequent expense to citizen suits of justice. Administrative control of the new framework goes to the state Supremo Court. More of its work will fall to the new appellate system. Into the circuit courts will be assimilated all other minor courts: probate, county, city, police magistrate and justice of the peace. Judges of the minor courts become associate iudges of the circuit courts. Pplice, magistrate and justices of the peace become magistrates. Where might flaws be? Naturally, the experts look at areas where controversy made agreement difficult or impossible. A savings clause in the new article has retained the status of courts and their operations if the 1963 assembly failed to make changes. "There is some concern about the requirement that judges resign if they wish to run for a higher seat on the bench. They have already lost their law business because they became judg- Aid Commission Holds Final Meet CHICAGO (AP) — The Illinois Public Aid Commission is folding up after its final meeting to become a code department in the governor's cabinet.

As soon as Gov. Otto Kerner signs a bill passed by the legis lature, responsibility for the state's 440,000 welfare recipients will switch to a department operating directly under him. During the legislative controversy in April and May, while Republicans and Democrats argued oyer the question of ceilings, funds for the IPAC were held up and the commission had no money to provide food and other essentials for relief recipients. Maremont, a Chicago industrialist, upset politicians by charging: "A small group of willful Senate Republicans are playing politics with the poor people on relief, 75 per cent of whom arc Negroes." Confirmation Withdrawn Kerner's appointment of Maremont had been confirmed but after his remarks were published the GOP leadership decided to reconsider the confirmation and subsequently it was considered a second time and rejected. A compromise agreement, under which ceilings are imposed for some types of relief, broke the stalemate over ceilings. A controversial program of providing birth control aid for relief recipients through the IPAC also provoked charges and countercharges in the legislature and throughout the state. The welfare agency, which has 10,000 employes and a budget of $640 million a biennium, will change little physically, but its appointed board will cease to be and the top official will be a director on the governor's Cabinet, Kerner has indicated that he will appoint Harold O. Swank, 49, executive secretary of the IPAC and a 20-year veteran of state welfare work, to the assignment. The commission, as one of its last official acts Friday, approved funds for relief recipients for July. READ THE CLASSIFIEDS1 es. fhey will lose their pension flghte. Vm wondering whether we have treated them too strictly," Dixon said. Besides providing for election of judges and their tenure, the assembly set salaries and.tried to I prevent increases irt an overstaffed corps of minor judges. Eventually the system is expected to employ about 100 associate judges and 250 magistrates. Now there are 207 associates and 1,000 magistrates and justices of the peace. One of the aims of the program submitted *by the council to the legislature was. to .reduce the number of judges to go on state payrolls. The state Supreme Court administrator's office estimates the total cost of the new article to the state for the next two years at about $9.5 million. About $2.3 million is expected to be new cost. One of the tools sought to reduce numbers of judges in lower levels was a schedule of salaries high enough to adequately compensate them, since they could no longer practice law, and yet not so high in the areas of low population as to hold judges who had few duties. The schedule finally established has as its ceiling the $30,000 now paid to Supreme Court justices. Appellate Court judges will get $25,000 with $4,500 more in Cook County. Circuit judges will get $20,000, with up to $9,000 more in Cook County. Associate judges will get $12,000 to $17,500, depending on the county size. Larger counties may pay supplements. Associate judges who are transferred to work in counties paying a higher salary must be paid a daily salary to make up the difference. Magistrates who are appointed after Jan. 1 and after their pres ent terms expire will receive $10,000, with up, to $6,000 more in Cook County. One current ques tion is whether $10,000 will at tract competent lawyers. Existing police magistrates and justices of the peace whose terms do not expire until 1965 will con tinue to receive their present sal aries. These range- from $600 a year up to $11,000. The 1965 legislative session may have some problems which the 1963 session sidestepped. For one thing, the question of compulsory retirement of judges at the age of 70 was dropped. However, the article contains a new commis sion system to rule on retirement. Circuit Courts retain their present powers to appoint certain offices and commissions. Functions of magistrates and justices of the peace will be re tained by the new magistrates. Besides, the magistrates will be given authority to hear some civil damage cases up to $5,000 and will have some expanded probate duties. To take some of the local bur dens where magistrates are not available, police will accept bail in some cases. The practice will be limited to police stations in amounts fixed by the court in schedules applying only to traffic and other minor city ordinance violations. T.
