SAWftDAV, 1963 ALTON EVENING 8EV13P? 11 States Enact Civil Rights Laws BY TUB ASSOCIATBO PtlKSS Lint. At leasl 17 state legislatures defeated anti-discrimination bills in this year's sessions, reflecting sleppvd-up prodding at the stato. level by civil rights backers. A survey by HIP Associated Press showed the backei-s succeeded In getting substantial mill- discrimination law changes adopted in at least 11 of these states. All are in the Norlh except Mnry- land. The bills dealt, mainly with housing, jobs, intnrradal marriage, and access to such public places as restaurants, hotels and motels. 'Maryland adopted a public accommodations bill, first of its kind south of the Mason-Dixon The statute, which appears headed for a court test, would require equal service for Ndgixres in Baltimore and about half of Maiy- Idiid. Broadens l>nu A Kansas change broadens anti- discrimination laws to cover hotels, motels, cabin camps and reslauraants. Violation reports go to the Kansas Civil Rights Commission. A South Dakota statute also prohibits barring persons from other public places, such as taverns and places of amusement. Violators are subject to fines of up lo $200. Utah and Nebraska repealed laws banning marriage between white persons and members of other races. A simitar attempt in Wyoming failed. Connecticut and New York en- nc.lod so-called open occupancy laws in housing. The Connecticut hw bans discrimination in selling or renting all housing except hvofrniil.v dwellings in which the owner or members of his family are living, or in renting rooms in a private home. New York's legislature extended Us law barring racial discrimination in sale or of private housing lo all private housing with the exception of two-family inrts in which the owner occupies onr- unit and rental of individual rooms in private homo?. Turned ttcnvn Michigan, Rhode Island. Nebraska and Illinois turned down sim- ilrr proposals. Bills banning racial or religious discrimination in employment were enacted in Maine and Iowa, placing them among more than 20 stotes with bans on job discrimination based on race, creed or color. Maine, New Jersey and Indiana adopted measures dealing with civil rights in general. Maine's change, subject to refetendum, would amend the state constitution to forbid discrimination against any person for any reason in the exercise of civil rights. New Jersey transferred its civil rights enforcement offire from the department of education to the attorney general's office. Indiana's two-year-old civil rights u.mmis- sicn was empowerpd t« issue cease and desist orders nnd to back them up with o-iui action.

CHAMBERLAIN Golograph correspondent SPRINGFIELD, III., (Special) — Like' the ancient story having to do with locking the barn doors after the horse has been stolen, Illinois may do something about maintaining covered bridges — historic relics of a bygone area — before the lasl bridges are down. Legislation enacted by the General Assembly in its waning days of the recent session provides that the State Department of Public Works and Buildings is to be responsible for the maintenance of the nine structures that remain of the hundreds of covered bridges that once dotted the Illinois' landscape. Gov. Otto Kerner has not taken official action on the legislation but is expected to sign it into law. Sponsors of the legislation point to the Chief Executive's past interest in maintaining historic reminders of • the past for t li c benefit of future generations in support of this belief. Oneo Slnto Capitol Most important of these was Governor Kerner's action to save from demolition the famed Sangamon County Court House, one time state capitol of Illinois and historically important as the place where Abrahjjm Lincoln made his "House divided" address. Although the State of Illinois was in a light squeeze financially at tlie time, governor Kerner approved legislation to permit Ihe state lo purchase the court house properly on the city square at Springfield for sliglilly less than $1 million.. Now Sangamon county is using the state money as the basis for financing the construction of a now $4 million county building and paying rent to the state lo occupy the historic structure until the new building is completed, SnnKHinon ""- s ~ The most recent count of covered bridges in Illinois showed that nine remain. They are located in Bureau, Hancock, Henderson, Knox, Warren, Shelby and Randolph counties which each have one of the historic structures with Sangamon county having two. Oldest of the covered bridges Is the one In Henderson county which historians claim was erected in 1845, The construction dates for the two iii Sangamon and those in Knox and Warren counties are not definitely known. Researchers claim they have ascertained the dates for (lie other existing covered bridges. They feel the Randolph county structure was built In 1854, the Shelby county one in 1857, Bureau in 1863 and Hancock in 1869. Approved Juno 25 The bill, authorizing the State Public Works Department to maintain, control and preserve t h e state's remaining covered bridges, was introduced in the, House of the General Assembly on April 30 by Reps. Richard E. Anderson (R-Galesburg) and G. William Horsley (R-Springfield). It was passed in (lie House on May 14 and given final approval in the Senate on June 25. Representative Anderson said the bill would require the department "to repair, maintain, operate, control and preserve every covered bridge (and the abutments and approaches thereto) where it spans a water course, chasm, ravine, road or railroad. . . and which, is enclosed in such manner as to prevent a clear, unimpeded view." 3 Fire Calls At Wood River During June WOOD RIVER — Acting Fire Chief Ervin Thien in his report for June shows a total of three fire runs for the month as con- Irasled with five for the previous month.
