House approves stopgap attempt to save federal aid for schools 'As lobbyists we're too pessimistic! ... the new appointees may be from minority groups but it doesn't necessarily follow that they're incorruptible!" Telegram for gun bill backfires in House S. Africa still holds confessed Red spy CAPE TOWN (AP) ~ Police Minister Louwrens Muller told the South African Parliament that confessed Soviet spy Yuri Loginov, arrested in 1967, is still being detained. Muller^said it was not in the public interest to comment further and refused to say whether Loginov asked for political asylum. A sportsmen's group lobbying for gun legislation yesterday riled Arizona House leaders with a telegram that backfired. Robert C. Cairns of Scottsdale, a member of the Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association, sent many House members this telegram: "Thousands of Arizona gun owners want Senate Bill 107 passed before adjournment or we'll know the reason why." House Speaker John Haugh, R-Pima, was so incensed with what he termed the "threatening" message that he stepped into the Democratic minority caucus and read the telegram to them. The he read it to the GOP majority members. House leaders indicated that the telegram may have killed the measure for this session. The bill attempts to amend the U.S. gun control act of 1968 by authorizing Arizonans to purchase firearms anywhere in the United States and in adjacent states, wherever such purchases are legal. Haugh told a newsman, "Cairns certainly hasn't done his cause any good with that type of telegram. One fundamental to getting legislation is not to threaten, particularly a gun and pistol society. We feel like we're being held up." Minority leader Jack Brown, D-Apache, commented, "That's a poor way to get legislation passed." Cairns, saying it was a "poor choice of words," apologized to Haugh and other House leaders late yesterday. He said Haugh accepted his apology. With fingers crossed, the Arizona House yesterday passed and sent the governor a measure which may or may not avert the loss of $8.5 million in federal aid to school districts. The Vote on the Senate * passed bill was 33-24. Generally, the vote followed party lines, Republicans for it and Democrats against. However, Rep. Sam McConnell, R-Coconino, voted no and Rep. Etta Hutcheson, D-Pima, voted yes. Arizona now draws more than $8 million in federal aid for Indians and children of federal employes. However, Arizona may lose that aid, under an October 1968 change in federal law, because it uses those sums to reduce state aid to the affected school districts. The bill merely adjusts the wording in the Arizona law in hopes that the federal government will not cut off the aid. McConnell strongly opposed the bill on grounds that a federal education official had Con game leads to term in jail Use of the United States mails to collect money in a con game resulted in sentencing to a six-month jail term for George Ian Hermansen. U.S. District Court Judge Walter E. Craig sentenced the former Phoenician, who pleaded guilty to one of seven counts returned by a federal grand jury, on Tuesday. The other six counts were dismissed. Hermansen was granted a stay of execution to April 14. Hermansen, 52, who at one time lived at 1645 W. Northern, was charged with soliciting advertising for a publication with a name similar to an existing journal then sponsored by law enforcement officers. sent a telegram advising that the measure would not conform to the new federal law. Senate sponsors, and some House members, said the bill should be passed to buy Arizona another year in which to seek a change in the federal law. House GOP leaders took the Senate bill in preference to a House approach which would have raised the local share of local school budgets to allow more state aid into the Indian districts. Minority leader Jack Brown, D-Apache, contended the House version would work fine. Action on the Indian bill wound up a day of off again, on again House meetings to clean up odds and ends of the 1969 session. The House debated and gave final approval to two House bills and six Senate amendments. It also concurred in Senate amendments to bills on bad checks and powers of the State Department of Corrections. Three of the passed Senate bills allow Arizona to enter a western interstate nuclear pact, require annual reading achievement tests for all third grade pupils, and appropriate $350,000 for a state mental hospital children's center. One of the House measures appropriates $744,861 to pay various claims and court judgments against the state. House and Senate leaders remained far apart yesterday on education bills to relax school budget controls and provide bilingual education for minority youngsters. RCAWidtm The Gap!!!
