WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE SEVENTEEN In General Assembly Sunday Closing Is Debated SPRINGFIELD, III. (Special) Legislation calling for Sunday closing, increased taxes on betting at Illinois race tracks, increased Judgments in wrongful death suits and a proposed com- porate tax rate ceiling for Chicago featured deliberations of the State General Assembly here last week. Another was proposed retirement of elderly state workers. Sunday closing was passed in the Senate and sent to the House last week after consideration of numerous amendments, several of which were adopted. The amended bill would require most businesses to shut down on Sunday. Two hours were used in debating amendments and the bill Itself. It is regarded as an aid to downtown city merchants from inroads by chain stores and discount houses. Fine $100 Exemptions in the bill include all food and beverages, drugs, newspapers and magazines, tobacco, dairy goods, baker products, funeral supplies, flowers, light bulbs and sun glasses. Penalties would be a fine of $100 for the first offense and $500 fines and 30 day jail sentences for subsequent convictions. The voting included: YES — Arrington, Bidwill, Broyles, Cnnficld, Collins, Dixon, Drach, Fawell, Friedrich, Gilbert, John Graham, Green, Grindle, Groen, Kerr, Larson, Little, Lyons, McGloon, Ozlnga and Welch. NO — Carpentier, Coulson, Davis, DeTolve, Downing, Eberspacher, Gottschalk, Kusibab, Laughlin, Neistein, Peterson, Schlagenhauf, Simon and Zeigler. Passer 33 to 20 and sent to House. A proposal to increase pad Mutuel betting at both running and harness race tracks in Illinois was beaten in the Senate, when Sen. Paul Simon (D-Troy) moved to take it from the table and place it on the calendar. The vote was 19 to 16 against the motion with one voting present. The action appears to mean the legislation is dead, a similar bill having been beaten in the House.

The House reversed itself last week on a bill to increase maximum judgments in wrongful death suits to $100,000 (now $30,000) after some hard missionary work by the proposal's chief author, Rep, Tobias Barry (D-Ladd). Earlier the House voted to table the bill but last week it passed a motion .by Barry to take it from the Speaker's table and place it on the calendar. Loses 49 to 87 Voting was on a motion to lay Barry's motion alongside the bill already tabled, but the motion lost 49 to 87, and the bill was ordered restored to the House calendar for further consideration.

Miller, Murphy, Neff, Rosander, Rowe, Schoeberlein, Ralph T. Smith, Willett and Wood. The bill is dated for further House action this week. Advocates of a bill to place a 1.01 per cent ceiling on the City of Chicago corporate tax rate sought to revive the measure last week, but failed 95 to 64, in a move to have it taken from the House Municipalities Committee ,vhere it appears to be pigeonholed although a similar proposal has been approved in the Senate.

Compulsory Retirement Compulsory retirement of state employes when they reach the age of 65 years is proposed in a bill which the House passed, 90 to 52, and sent to the Senate last week. Sponsored by Reps. Paul Powell (D-Vienna) and J. W. Scott (D-Bloomington) it with stood strong oral House floor opposition to take passage by a bare vote. The bill sets up the following rntirement schedule employe? who are 74 or older December 1, 1963, would be retired; those who are 70 or over on June 30, 1964, would be retired on that date; and employes who are 65 or older on December 31, 1964, would be retired on that date but department heads could use their discretion to postpone retirement until 70. The discretion would consist o allowing an employe to be retained beyond 65 where he or she is able to pass a medical exam ination at any time to determine whether they are still mentally and physically able to perform their duties. Scott said 36 states already have compulsory retirement systems.

English Farm Expert Talks to Jersey Club JERSEYVILLE — Anthony Hart of England, and expert on agriculture in England, who is in the United States studying farming methods, spoke to Jersey Rotarians Monday. Mr. Hart said a great difference exists in methods employed in England and in the United States. Contrary to the popular idea that English landowners are generally limited to small tracts, he said that many large acreages still exist under one ownership, descending from the old days of the feudal barbns, whose tracts were aii large as thirty five thousand acres. These baronial inheritances heve come down through many generations of the same families. The tenancies are quite similar to the ownerships. The same familiei have lived and tilled the earth belonging to the same landlord and his descendants. The conservation of English soil has been a matter of great concern through many generations, he said. The land is treated as an inheritance to be passed on to the next generation in as good or better condition than it was received.
