THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIVE Study to Be Made On Birth Control SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) Birth control, once a burning question, is about to make a quiet exit from the Illinois Legislature. An agreement reached Wednesday ended a threatened filibuster and paved the way to pacify all sides by having a legislative commission study the controversial issue. Sen. Morgan Finlcy and Rep. Paul Elward, Cliicago Democrats, had threatened to tie up the legislature with a filibuster in the final days because House Speaker John Lewis, R-Marshall, insisted he would noi call for passage an anti-birth control bill. Sponsored originally by Finley, the bill sought to restrict the Illinois Public- Aid Commission's birth control program to married women living with their husbands. Under a compromise agreed to by Elward and Finley with Lewis and Gov. Olio Kernel 1 , thr bill was amended to remove all pi*visions except the one to crcale a 15-memher commission to study the matter during the next 38 months. Financed by a $25,000 appropriation, the commission will examine the legal, social and moral aspects of a stale-sponsored program for distributing eontriwp- tivcs to women receiving aid checks. A report on the findings! will be made to the 196") legislature. Evilsizer Heads Club At Bethalto BETHALTO - Jim Evllsizer wns installed president of Bethalto Rotary Club Wednesday night at.

(AP)-The Illinois House has passed a bill to permit trucks 65 feet long to operate on four-lane highways in Illinois. The limit now is 60 feet. The House referred the bill back to the Senate Wednesday night for concurrence in a minor amendment. The vote was 124-29. Rep. Ralph Smith. R-AHon. said the bill restricted the trucks to four-lane highways to avoid passing problems from other traffic. Rep. Paul Elward, D-Chicago, opposed the bill because the trucks "would rip a lot of city and county roads to pieces" getting to four-lane routes. The House, clearing away dozens of relatively noncontroversial measures, also approved bills to create a seven-member pharmacy board in the Department of Registration and to increase marriage license fees in Cook County from $5 to $10.

Daley of Chicago also had copied the compromise. "We've accomplished what we wanted to obtain through the bill—a limit on the birth control program," Finley said. Lewis, an avowed opponent of any restriction, previously had blocked every move by Elwar-i, handling the measure in the House, to get it advanced on the calendar. Until Finley and Elwavd threatened to filibuster, the birth control controversy had simmered down after Arnold Maremont. IPAC chairman who had pushed the program, was fired from his job by the Senate. Maremont got in trouble when he accused Republican senators of being anti-Negro in proposing to place ceilings on relief checks. When Maremont was in control, the IPAC had approved a plnn to furnish birth control information and contraceptives with state money to all women on the aid rolls. Maremont had argued that public aid costs could not be reduced by any great amount without giving birth control devices in an attempt to cut down the number of illegitimate children on Aid to Dependent Children rolls. The IPAC is about to be replaced by a department under the governor's jurisdiction. Bills to bring about this change are be fore Kerncr, who plans to sign them. Kentucky Acts ToEndBusiness Discrimination FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP)—A legal show down loomed today on Gov. Bert Combs' executive order directing the end of segregation in all state-licensed businesses and professions. Jack M. Lowcry Jr., attorney for the Louisville Tavern Operators Association, said the order is unconstitutional. "No provision I know of authorizes n governor to regulate the affairs of private oiti/ens by proclamation," he said. Civil rights leaders generally hailed the order. The governor's office, which sought advice from the U.S. attorney general before drawing tin the order, said it is valid and enforceable. Practically every retail outlet in the state and almost every profession serving the public is affected by Combs' directive, to take effect in two months at most. Julius Rather, the governor's legal assistant, said Wednesday's document is the most all-encompassing any state has proclaimed. He predicted the Suprema Court will uphold Combs' action if a lawsuit is earned that far. Perhaps the most widespread impact would be on motels, restaurants and taverns, which have been primary integration targets. "We don't license them to practice segregation," Rather said. '.tiropc. Guests at the ladies night affair were Dr. Robert Anschuet?., Mr. and Mrs. Harry Nevlin, and Mr. and Mrs. O. D. Simlh, Alton; Carl Rogers and Warner -offman, Wood River; and the Rev. Curl Ilenke of Bethalto. L. K. Prehn was the installing officer.

The House also refused to endorse two bills which Republican backers said were aimed at reducing election fraud in Chicago. The bills called for an appointive interim commission to have supervision over both Chicago and Cook County election machinery and for a permanent, elected commission to take over the duties in 19615. Rep. George Dolezal, R-Berwyn. said the bills were "not a panacea to prevent election frauds but they would help take away some of the stigma from Chicago that was created by the last two elections." Democratic leaders said thej bills were objectionable because! they would be mandatory in Cook | County and permissive in the rest | of the state.
