Reapportionment Chances Better, Commission Says SPRINGFIELD (UPI) — A commission to reapportion Illinois House districts may settle a controversial issue of "overlapping" districts in Cook County next week, its spokesmen said Tuesday. The question of Cook County districts has been a major area of disagreement among Democrats and Republicans on the-reapportionment commission. Republicans hold for the "one, two, three" re­ map formula. They claim the constitution clearly divides the state into three separate areas — the city of Chicago, the rest of Cook County, and the rest of the state. These areas may not overlap, Republicans say. Democrats have wanted a map that would allow some districts in Cook County to overlap to include sections of Chicago and of the suburbs. Would Cut Loss • Because of a population shift to the suburbs, the city of Chicago probably will lose two districts. Democrats feel they could cut their loss of seats in the House by offsetting heavy Republican suburban areas with heavily Democratic areas in the city. George Dunne, spokesman for Republicans on the re-map commission, said he thought the issue could be settled next week. "Personally, I can buy a map with this one, two, three plan," Dunne said. ' Dunne, a member of the Cook County Board of Commissioners, was asked if Chicago Mayor Richard Daley would accept such a map. Dunne answered, "I think eventually Mayor Daley will accept a map that is one, two, three." > Republican spokesman Fred Gurley said he felt "considerable optimism" that the remap group would succeed in its task of redistricting the state by constitu­ tional formula. Both spokesmen agreed that the meetings must remain closed to the press and to the public. If the discussions were open, Dunne said, members would be swamped with "letters, requests, phone calls and everything. We'd never get anything done." The two spokesmen said Tuesday that the discussion centered around downstate maps submitted by each party. Neither would say if the proposals broke Lake County into two districts or left it as one. Gurley said discussions so far had been about southern areas and had not progressed to consideration of Lake and Du Page counties. Could Be Split Each county now is only one district. However, both counties have large enough populations to allow them to be split into two districts under the constitutional reapportionment formula. Gov, Otto Kerner vetoed a Republican reapportionment bill that made two districts out of Du Page County but left Lake County as one district. In Kerner's veto message, he cited the Lake County situation as a major "inequality" in the GOP bill. He pointed out that several districts in Southern Illinois had less than half the population of Lake County. Neither man would comment on a plan by House Speaker John Lewis for a special legislative session to pass a law allowing the commission to go directly to the state Supreme Court for rulings on constitutional questions The proposed overlapping of Cook County was one of the ques tions involved in the Lewis plan.

Enrollments Increase at Universities Enrollment at the University of Illinois for the 1963-64 year has already reached a record high, and it appears the same thing may occur at Western Illinois University at Macomb. At the close of regular regis tration Saturday, Dean C. W. Sanford said 25,175 students had enrolled, the first time the 25,000 figure had been topped at the U. of I. This is the fifth con secutive year the enrollment has set a new record. At the same time last year, the number of students totaled 23,760, thus the 1,415 increase amounts to 5.96 per cent. San ford expects late registration to swell the final count to about 25,600. Official total last year was 24,169. At Macomb, Western Illinois University expects more students than ever in its 63-year-old his tory. Already 1,500 freshmen have registered, and another 1,000 were formally accepted by the school. President A. L. Knoblauch addressed a gathering of new stu dents and parents Sunday and Monday he spoke to the incoming students alone. He said that some 4,200 1963 high school graduates applied to the University for acceptance.

The chief executive is expected to stress once again his belief that taxes must be cut to boost the economy. He will also probably press for passage of the measure without the anti-spcncling strings proposed by Republicans during the 6 p.m. CDT address. But it appeared that his appeal was doomed to failure beforehand as far as the House's GOP membership is concerned. READ THE WANT ADS!
