(AP Wirephoto Map) EDWARDSVILLE — James F a r m e r , who recently resigned as assistant secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, will speak at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, Jan. 13 at 3:30 p.m. in the Communications Building theater. One of the pioneers in developing the direct action method which has characterized the civil rights movements since 1942, Farmer was among those who founded CORE (Congress of Racial Equality). He served as its national director from 1961 to 1966 when he resigned to head the Center for Community Adult Education, a private agency established to develop and implement a national literacy program. In 1961 Farmer led the "Freedom Ride" and was in the first group arrested in Jackson, Miss., 'and spent 40 days in the city jail. He was later arrested in Plaquemi ne, La., and in New York City during CORE'S opening day protest against alleged segregation and discrimination practiced by many of the states exhibiting at the New York World's Fair. Born in Marshall, Tex., in 1920, Farmer received a B,S. degree from Wiley College in Texas in 1938. In 1941 he received his B. D. degree from the Howard University School of Religion. He holds honorary doctorates from five colleges and universities.

Their parents since last Monday, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Bolden, expect few problems. By TONY Ft'LLKR SPRINGFIELD (UPI) - Monmentum for a lame cluck legislative pay increase grew today as the slate capital prepared for what is likely to be one of the most unusual, hard fought and noisy sessions of the Illinois General Assembly in years. Sen. W. Russell Arrington, Evanston. leader of state Senate Republicans, continued his efforts on behalf of the pay raise, which would be enacted by the 76th General Assembly shortly before the 77th takes office at noon Wednesday. The llth - hour tactic would give the new assembly benefit of the pay raise. If enacted, the increase would be the second the legislators have voted themselves in three years. Arrington would not say how much of a hike lie was seeking but sources in his office said the senator would like to see the salaries increased to $17,500 a year. Members of the House now make $12,000 a year and senators ?9,000. The senators, however, automatically will go to ?12.(M)0 a year when the new assembly convenes. Roth senators and representatives receive an additional $6.000 a year in expense money. Sen. Robert Cherry. Chicago, who the Democrats were expected to pick as their leader at a Tuesday caucus, said he was amenable to a pay increase. "I have always supported salary increases for members of the assembly," Cheiry said. He said assembly members do "two to three times more work" than they have ever done before and were entitled to more money. In the spring session of the assembly, an attempt to raise legislative pay was killed in the Senate because many senators felt it would be a politically irrational act so close to the election. Gov. Richard B. .Ogilvie has said he is agreeable to a pay raise for the legislators. , If Arrington is successful in • getting a hike to $17.500, Illinois' legislative salaries would become the second highest in the nation, ranking behind California's $19,200 a year. But with the addition of the Sfi.OOO yearly expense money, the Illinois lawmakers would be the highest paid in the nation. Arrington ,saicl he had been assured of the two - thirds majority necessary to pass the pay hike in the House but still was uncertain about the situation in the Senate. If the assembly agrees on a pay raise, it will very likely be the last thing it agrees on for some time. The new legislature has an i m p r c s s i v c schedule of business before it but the explosive political situations in the House and Senate are likely to make the legislative process look like a high wire act with no nets. The Senate is locked in an unprecedentel 2fi-29 tie and Republicans control the House by what is really an uncontrollable 90-87 majority Attorney General William .1. Scott has ruled that Governor Paul Simon, the Senate's presiding officer, may cast Hie tie-breaking vote on organi/ing the upper chamber, apparently giving control to the Democrats. This means Arrington will be out as president pro tern and majority leader, positions he has held since infif). and the way cleared for the takeover of the posts by Cherry. In the House, the GOP has elected Rep. W. Robert Blair. Park Forest, as its nominee for speaker, a post he will get barring a retaliatory minority takeover of the spcakcrship by Democrats. Such a minority move was considered unlikely unless Senate Republicans refused to adhere to Scott's ruling and attempted to maintain control of the upper chamber. Rep. Clyde Choatc, D-Anna. presumably will be elected House Democratic leader. The wafer-thin GOP House majority spells prolonged hassles because the Democrats can block any legislation they don't like t h r o u g h the use of Republicans who will defect from their party for various political reasons. This volatile political chemistry means the 77th assembly will be able to deal with its legislative business in only the most, agonizing and fractured of ways. And some of that business is of the highest importance to the state. Home of Flavor-Plus Foods SEE HOW VOU SAVE! TOP QUALITY, TOO! CHECK OIR WEDNESDAY AD! We Care. >. About You!
