2 Galesburg Reaister-Mdil, Golesburg, III, Monday, Sept. 16, 1963 Speaker Seeking Reapportionment Special Session SPRINGFIELD (UPI) — House Speaker John Lewis today said he plans to ask Gov. Otto Kerner to call a special session of the Illinois Legislature "immediately" to resolve issues concerning House reapportionment. Lewis said he would ask for the special session to pass legislation which would allow a bipartisan Reap portionment Commission to' go directly to the Supreme Court to rule on questions of constitutionality. The speaker, a Republican from Marshal], said he would make the request in a letter to the governor late this week or early next week if an issue of districts in Cook McLoskcy Hits Delays Senate County remains unsolved by the commission. Meeting Tuesday The Reapportionment Commission, which was named to re-district the state after Kerner vetoed a Republican-passed reapportionment bill, will meet Tuesday. It has been in existence about one month and must complete its work by Dec. 14. If it fails to find a re-districting formula approved by seven of its 10 members, all House seats must be decided on an at-large basis in the 1964 general election. The issue which Lewis feels , must be decided by a Supreme Re*p. Robert T. McLoskey (R- ! Court decision is whether Cook 111.) of Monmouth, charged today : County districts may overlap to that the Senate's delay in acting : include parts of Chicago and parts By on appropriations measures passed by the House was a cover-up move to promote a tax cut. He said the delays were deliberate and designed to lull taxpayers into favoring tax cuts "without knowing the full magnitude of federal spending for the current year." He said in a statement issued today that the House has trimmed some $3.2 billion from appropriations bills and predicted 11 further cuts to bring the total reduction to $5 billion. But, he said, the Senate in the past has reinstated many of the House cuts. Therefore, he declared, "I demand to know what the final score will be before voting on a tax cut on the basis of a fifth-inning report." McLoskey pointed out that the Senate restored all the cots made by the House on legislative appropriations proposed for the Department of Interior, Treasury Department and Post Office. "It therefore seems obvious," he said, "why the Senate has not acted on agriculture appropriations passed by the House June 6, State, Justice and Commerce appropriations passed by the House June 18,^ and funds for the Department of Defense approved by the House June 26." "By waiting nearly three months to act," McLoskey concluded, "the Senate has managed to camouflage future actions which would restore most of the cuts the House has carved from the President's $98.8 billion budget. If final figures for federal expenditures were revealed to the American people, they would not only turn down a tax cut, but would demand closer adherence to fiscal sanity by the administration." To Address Scoutcrs McLoskey will adress a finance seminar of the Prairie Council Boy Scouts of America tonight at 6:30 at the Colonial Hotel in Monmouth. He will speak on Scouting and citizenship. Scout representatives of the 4% county area of the council will be in attendance. Heading the group will be Dr. A. L. Knoblauch of Macomb, council president, and G. C. Bulkeley of Abingdon, council commissioner. Harry Harper of Kewanee is the program chairman. The purpose of the meeting is to explain how Scouting dollars serve the community. of the suburbs. Republicans interpret the constitution to mean that the Cook County districts may not overlap. Under this interpretation, they probably would gain House seats since heavily Democratic Chicago must lose two districts in the current reapportionment. Democrats say it is legal for a single House district to include both city and suburban areas. Under this interpretation, Democrats possibly could save some seats they otherwise would lose, with a map drawn so that Republican majorities in the suburbs would be offset by Democratic majorities in the city. Under the present system, the reapportionment commission could ask Democratic Atty. Gen. William G. Clark to issue an opinion about the overlapping districts. But Lewis fears that such an opinion could be overturned by a court test of the issue, which would throw the entire state in a chaotic at-large situation shortly before election. "If they (Democrats) are sincere, they should toe willing to let the Supreme Court render an immediate opinion in the disagreement," Lewis said. Lewis said he had talked about his plan with certain Republican leaders including GOP State Chairman Victor L. Smith. He said he had not talked to Democratic leaders or with GOP Senate leaders. "All the House members I've talked to are in favor of this," Lewis said. "Otherwise, they're afraid we might find ourselves right up to filing time with a case in court challenging the whole state map." Lewis said today he intended to talk to members of the commission to get their views on his plan for a special session. He said there was "considerable concern among many House members over the fact that not more progress is being made." "The members now can't oven formulate campaign plans or committees for the primary," he said. "They're getting concerned, perturbed." Lewis said if a special session was called, it should be no later than the second week in October. | Tins would give the commission almost two months after the end of the session to work on the redistricting. Set Inquest In Death of Aledo Man An inquest is tentatively sched uled for Tuesday night into the death of Ron Johnson, 23, of Ale do, who was killed Sunday morn ing at 1:45 a.m. on U.

A 26-year-old Monmouth man, Albert Earl Frederick of 215 W. Fourth Ave., was sentenced to a minimum of one year and a maximum of five years by Judge Keith Scott. Frederick previously pleaded guilty to a forgery charge and requested probation. Following his investigation, Lloyd Herbener, probation officer, filed a report this morning in which he recommended that probation be denied. The charge against Frederick, according to the report, involved two forged checks for $42.50 and $36, with another check which was not a forgery reported to have been passed by the defendant. Also, the report related that Frederick was placed on probation, last March 4, in Warren County Court on a charge under the Deceptive Practices Act, also involving checks. Perales Sentenced It appeared from court information that probation granted Joseph Lucien Perales, 34, address listed as 844 S. Academy St., which was revoked this morning, had only a short time to run. Perales was placed on probation, according to Herbener's supplementary report, Feb. 18, 1959, on a burglary charge conviction in tioned today concerning the incident, according to an early afternoon report from policeh eadquar- ters. circuit court here. The offense which formed the basis for the action to revoke probation was reported to have taken place Aug. 30, in Rock Island. Perales was alleged to have taken some women's clothing from a clothesline near a Rock Island residence. After revoking Perales' probation, the judge sentenced him to a prison term of a minimum of one year and a maximum of four years. Motion in Altona Case A request for probation was entered by William Louis Hartshorn, 16, of 327 E. Second St., following his waiver of grand jury action and a plea of guilty to a burglary charge. The request was referred to Herbener for investigation and repovt and the youth, it was indicated, was returned to the county jail pending further action. He was alleged to have participated in the Aug. 10 burglary of the Town and Country Store, Altona. When in court last week, William H. Henning, public defender, was appointed by Judge Scott to represent the youth. EARN $1.75 PER HOUR In Your Spare Time MEN — WOMEN STUDENTS Apply 4-6 P.M. at 218 N.
