Stay-at-home B ""!!!! >t .. J J! MPER By McCaftfty .•**.."f* Slain man draeeed 2 blocks, jury told tf j^TitmitniHvviMKr /fAT/sssssssski. t-'C? v •/ f f L.L Phoenfo, Thnrs., April 3,1969 The Afittma Republic S5 congressman stalls aid bill Associated Press WASHINGTON - Disappointed House leaders have given up hope of passing a $5 billion school aid bill before Easter because Rep. William M. Colmer wouldn't leave his Mississippi home to call a committee meeting. Colmer, Demorcatic chairman of the Rules Committee, rejected Speaker John W. McCormack's repeated pleas that he return to Washington to clear the bill for action last week or this week. THIS FOLLOWED a pattern perfected by Colmer's longtime predecessor, former Rep. Howard W. Smith, who frequently claimed he was too busy on his farm to call the Rules Committee into session to consider bills Smith didn't like. Most of Colmer's committee members favor the school bill, but he has consistently voted against it. Colmer couldn't be reached for comment despite repeated calls to his home and office in Mississippi. With Congress on the verge of its 10-day Easter recess, the earliest the bill can be taken up now is April 16. THE BILL would extend by five years the law providing most federal aid to elementary and secondary schools. The administration is strongly opposed to the five-year feature and is insisting on a shorter term so President Nixon can suggest changes if he wants. McCormack's interst in getting the 79-year-old Colmer back from sMississippi was due both to his support of the bill and his desire to be able to point to some solid achievement by the House during its first three months in session. Despite public protestations by McCormack and others to the contrary, House leaders are embarrassed by their meager accomplishments so far, which consist chiefly of having acquiesced in generous pay raises for themselves and top members of the executive and judicial branches. McCORMACK, therefore, prodded Rep. Carl D. Perkins, D-Ky., chairman of the Education and Labor Committee, to get the bill ready before the Easter recess and the committee produced it on March 18. A week later the House leaders made arrangements to bring it up March 27. But first it had to be cleared by the Rules Committee. McCormack telephoned Colmer in Pascagoula and asked him to come back and convene the committee. But the congressman refused, and repeated calls didn't budge him. TUCSON (AP)-R i c h a r d Boranno, 20, was dragged nearly two blocks as he desperately tried to jump from a car the night he was slain, Pima County attorney William J. Schafer told a nine-woman, three-man jury yesterday. Boranno, dressed in female attire, was shot before he was dumped on a curb Dec. 7, Schafer said. A Davis-Monthan AFB airman, John A. Dixon, 21, is on trial on an open charge of murder in the slaying. Superior Court Judge John P. Collins yesterday allowed the jury to hear a voluntary statement Dixon signed after he gave himself up to South Tucson police.

"Plan on looking real sharp for Easter, huh?" Monthly welfare checks to N.Y. families sliced NEW YORK mother of a New York City welfare family of six goes to a supermarket after June 1, she'll have less than $4 a day to spend on food. "That doesn't buy much," said the city's Human Resources Administration yesterday. "You can't liv» an that." Now this family is getting $6 a day for food. The reason for the change—a sharp cutback in the welfare and medi- caid program voted last weekend by the Republican- controlled state legislature and approved by Republican Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. The Workmen's Circle, a social service organization, called the budget cuts in welfare, and another in Medicaid, as "a time bomb that could wreck urban tranquility for years to come." The welfare cuts alone affect 1.3 million persons, a million of them in New York City. Mitchell I. Ginsberg, head of the Human Resources Administration, said the average payment now of $222 a month to a family of four will be cut to a flat $208. Up to now, a spokesman said, each welfare family's amount was tailored to the individual family, depending on things like the ages of the children. The $228 figure was an average. But under the new program, Ginsberg said, all families of four will get $208. And on top of that, an annual allowance of $100 per person for such items as clothing will be eliminated. Some families, the agency Associated Press When the said, stand to lose $600 to $700 a year. The $208 figure applies only to New York City. In upstate communities, the flat amount will be $183. The regulations permit local welfare departments to pay less. The monthly payments, moreover, are intended to cover everything but rent and fuel, which are paid separately. H. B. Robertsons celebrate 50th wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. H .B. Robertson of 2510 E. Willetta celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary yesterday with a family dinner in their home.

Roser said about 8,000 persons visited the recreational canyon area in the Catalina Mountains Sunday. He said the cleanup of the litter left behind would take a four-man crew four days to cean up and would cost about $300. The major damage, Roser said was vandalism at the end of the Upper Sabino Canyon Road. Obscene words sprayed on with red paint covered about 30 feet of the canyon walls, rocks, rest rooms and walls of the stream bed. Amphitheater school recall is abandoned TUCSON (AP) - Edward Glenn, who headed a move to recall several members of the Amphitheater School District Board said yesterday he has given up the drive because of misgivings about the entirt school board system. Glenn said some people wanted to continue the recall drive but none wanted to head it. The drive apparently was started after the school board declined to renew a contract for an English teacher at Canyon del Oro High School. RCA Widens The Gap!!!
