SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVEft New Bills Set an Assembly Record SPRINGFIELD (Special) - Th Illinois House and Senate will ki all hills tn committee on Jun 14 but will still establish a nev record for bill introductions b that date. Almost 2,700 bills ha been introduced by the end o this first June legislative Week It compares with the former rec ord of 2,680 which was set in th 1961 session. This week, the House approve* the tax program sought by Chi cago Mayor Hlchard Daley. Tb Senate took no action but maj do BO. Mayor Daley told a new conference Thursday that half o the new revenue will be used tt reduce property taxes. The intended big effort thi week by the self-styled House "Economy Bloc" to cut appropria tions in three budgetary bills, fel far short of its mark. However the bloc did succeed in reducing appropriations in the three b; $677,575. Biggest Target The biggest target of the bloc was an omnibus appropriations bill which would have earmarked $22,197,714 for various slate com missions, boards and agencies The bloc cut $618,600, mostly from the Illinois Racing Board, the Scholarship Commission, the Span ish American War Veterans Com mission and the Commission for Handicapped Children. However, the latter commission and the racing board have trans ferred funds elsewhere, so the deletion of budgetary items from these appropriations was not really a saving. In Ws appearance to testify be fore legislators, Mayor Daley ask' ed for increases in the city cigarette tax, the city alcoholic tax anc the city sales tax. He was joinec by civic officials from severa downstate cities, Peoria, Rockford Aurora, Litchfield, SkoWe, Carbondale and Johnson City. Cited Cities' Needs In addition, the House municipalities committee heard A. L. Sargent, executive director of the Illinois Municipal League ,who said cities need — badly need — more revenue sources. A proposed law, still in the form of a Senate bill, which is the focal point for more and more mail received by legislators in both house's,-;.. was approved this week by .the Seriate. It is the now much amended Sunday closing bill. This bill — and it will probobly get even more amendments in the House — permits Sunday sales for taverns, grocery "'stores, drug stores and various'other smaller units. Legislators in both houses publicly question the constitutionality of the bill, pointing to a Supreme Court ruling which declared a 1961 law invalid because it 'was discriminatory. This was the law which said there could be no auto sales on Sundays. Would Hike Salaries The Senate also passed and sent to the House, a bill authorizing salary increases for county sheriffs, coroners, clerks, recorders, circuit court clerks, treasurers and auditors. Maximums would be hiked by amounts ranging from $1,500 to $2,000, depending on the population of the county. The increase, would have tp be made by each.county's Board of Supervisors. ' A second try to establish branch banking in Illinois failed this week when the House banking committee put at "do not pass" tag on the proppfal. The first effort to legalize branch banking failed in 1959 and again in 1961. The committee rejected the bill by a 28-4 vote. Among committee actions in the Senatejrijvere: Wire Tapping Bill The judiciary committee approved a bill endorsed by Chicago Police Supjt, Orlando W, Wilson to permit wire tapping! :The measure, however, would irequire a circuit court order and then, only for crimes involving murder, narcotics, kidnapping, prostitution and gambling. It was amended to omit. as. .petitioners v for the order, sheriffs "'and chiefs of police. : The Senate's'education committee killed a Chicago Transit Au- thorit supported bill which asked the state to' pay half the fare for students'in public and private schools, ori their way ,to and from these schools, Previously, it failed in J961 and later in a special session. The Senate' Appropriations Committee tabled a bill which it was ready to approve. It would have appropriated. $496,000 to pay bond charges for.two.years on a proposed office building in Springfield for the attorney general. Tabled for Economy The attorney general himself, William G. Clark, told the committee the new building would actually cost $3.5 million. He said: "This is an unusual request, but I am asking that the proposal be tabled in the interest of economy. In 1961, the legislature authorized the building. The second try to put an open occupancy (fair housing) law on Illinois statute books, also failed this week in the House. A similar J & A Springman HAS A FULL LINE OF LAWN MOWERS proposal failed two years ago. Although the open occupany hi (also termed a "freedom of res dence" bill) is still alive, it prospects are not considered gooc The legislation would permit any one to buy, rent or lease propert regardless of rate, .creed or color Lacked 22 Votes It would also establish a stat board which would investigat allegations of violations. Thi week, it lacked'22 votes to get simple majority to pass, collect ing only 67 favorable votes Further consideration was the postponed. By a 151-0 vote, the House passed and sent to the Senate thi week a bill which is considered reform" measure by Repub licans, It concerns selection o judges in Cook County and insure that each political party will b represented by persons who ar really members of each politica party. The House also passed, 153- a measure, which would establisl a slate board to regulate use o pesticides on state property ani state-controlled property by stat agencies. It would be effectiv Jan. 2, 1964, is backed by severa state departments and is intcnder. :o curb use of pesticides whicl kills wild game and fish. Would Help Annexations Another bill approved in the House this week would make i easier for cities to annex nearb> territory. It would repeal presen laws which require city councils [o have a two-thirds vole of their members to annex. Instead, a simple majority is now required iowever, a referendum can stil be demanded by residents of the irea involved. Gov. Otto Kerner this week sign cd several bills into law which evy a special tax on utilities to iclp defray the cost of the 111! nois Commerce Commission. I s anticipated that the tax wil yield more than $2 million in the next two-year period. The pro posal is said to be in operation n other states and was support ed by James Karber, Chairman if the Illinois Commerce Com mission.

BfcANN Not so long ago, anyone who wanted a ceramic tile floor in a bathroom, kitchen or entry hall, had to call in a skilled craftsman and have the job done for whatever price the job was quoted* Now, thanks to easy to apply ceramic tile, easier to use adhesives, and even easier to follow directions, anyone who can read can lay ceramic tile like a "pro." The tile industry has taken a giant step forward in tile with "ears." manufacturing These small spacers butt against each other and provide perfectly aligned joints even though you have never laid tile before. After setting the first course along a level line, following illustrated step by step directions, the "spacers" work like magic and simplify til- Ing up or down walls. To speed installation of ceram- c tile on walls, the tile dealer now offers tile bonded to panels measuring 12" x 12" to 12" x 16". Instead of working with one 4" x 4" tile, you lay a whole panel in just about the same ime. The 32 page book offered below illustrates and explains every step in language everyone can readily follow. Directions cover every possible problem from tiling around a. tub to removing toilet or tiling up to one. Directions explain how to estimate amount of tile required, what primer, adhesive and caulking is needed, where and when each is used. Directions also tell how to lay paver tiles on porches or patios; how to replace WE SELL HEATING HAPPINESS Janitrol ^^ Comfort at a comfortable price is our specialty! CAMP 1126 Milton ltd.
