FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE NINE Kerner Addresses SIUGrads CARBONDALE, 111. (AP)-Gov. Otto Kerner urged 1,400 Southern Illinois University graduates Thursday to include a nondiscriminatory attitude in their future contacts with the Illinois economy. An estimated 10,000 graduates and visitors wetje scattered in buildings throughout the campus after heavy rain cancelled plans to hold commencement exercises In McAndrew Stadium. "You and I," Kerner told his audience, "have it in our hands to build a future and make it right with good will and charity, with wisdom, with vision, with courage, and with equal job opportunities for all." So the state's economy, he said, will require creation of 200 new jobs daily for the next 10 years. The governor received an honorary doctor of laws degree from the university, and was cited as a champion of higher education. Due to the rain, Kerner and other speakers were moved to the nearby student center where they spoke to recipients of masters and doctors degrees. Other graduates and visitors listened to the ceremonies over a public address'system. The 1,400 graduates represent SIU's largest graduating group.

The couple was presented a check for $355.50, representing retroactive social security benefits due them for 1962. The Nemnich's also will receive an additional $657 for the remainder of this year. It all came about because Nemnich, who Is 69 and retired from the post office, took the time to talk with a Social Security field representative. Because he was working as an elevator operator in the Edwardsville National Bank Building nad earning more than $2,000 a year, Nemnich believed he was not entitled to social security payments. He took the elevator job to keep busy. Now, he says, he and his wife are glad he discussed it with the representative, because they will receive more than $1,000 in benefits before the_ end of this year and will continue to receive part of their benefits, even while Nemnich continues working. Though social security records are strictly confidential, the Nem- nichs consented to telling their story in the hope that others in similar circumstances might en- oy the same good fortune.

(AP)-An ncome tax bill, lied lo reduclions in sales and properly laxes, went down to a crushing defeat in the Illinois House at a Thursday night session. Needing 89 votes to pass, the bill offered by Rep. Joe W. Russell, D-Piper City, got only 33 favorable votes, wllh 117 opposed. Opponents attacked the plan as jeing unconslilulional, in conflicl wilh plalforms of Ihe Republican and Democralic p a r I i e s., and against Gov. Otto Kerner's prom- se of no new taxes this legisla- :ive session. The bill called for a flat 2 per cent levy on the federal income tax paid by Illinois residents. Russell said his goal was to ower sales and property taxes by $320 million in a two-year period aeginning Jan, 1,1964. He proposed that half of the revenue from the tax be used for culling Ihe state sales tax from to 2% per cent. The other half of the income would have been earmarked for allocation to counties, to go for reducing local property laxes. Russell argued il would nol be an additional tax but merely replace others. Objectors countered by saying taxpayers would have to pay the income levy and other existing taxes until the constilulionality o the income tax was tested in the courts. Labor, farm and educationa groups had supported the bill. I' was opposed by taxpayers, industrial and chamber of commerce organizations. The income tax debate took about one hour of Ihe four-hour session, during which 38 bills were passed. In olher action, the House lurned down a proposal lo reslric minor drivers to driving between 4 a.m. to 11 p.m., unless accom panied by a person over 21.
