Congress today to gradually scrap immigration quo- as which put a ceiling on the number of people who may enter .he United States annually from particular countries. To replace country-by-country quotas, Kennedy recommended immigrants be admitted on a basis that would give first priority to those with needed skills, sec ond those related to individuals already living in the United States and third, to those who apply irst for immigration visas. In identical letters to Vice Pres- dent Lyndon B. Johnson and House Speaker John McCormack, D-Mass., Kennedy said that immigration quotas allotted by coun- ry" are "without basis in either ogic' or -reason." the President said that the quo- as' are unjust because they are heavily weighted in favor of immigration from Northern Eu- •ope," while putting strict limits n immigration from Southern and Eastern Europe and other parts the world. , 12 pounds of lea food, l pounds of cubed eteaif aj«J a na box of ' on tiie front dow.

Elma B. Worrell, <i03 Illinois Ave., South Roxana, and Harry E. Brown, 62, of 2407 Amelia St., Alton, holders of a county liquor permit for the Shelbar Tavern at 103 Madison Ave (Old Edwardsville Rd.) South Roxana, were charged in a complaint after dep- Roosevelt Testifies On Rights ~ WASHINGTON (AP) - Under sect-clary ot Commerce Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr. testified today he thinks that "by aild lafge our businessmen, North and South, will welcome" legislation to ban racial segregation In places of public accommodation. He presented data compiled by the Commerce Department to show what he termed the "adverse effect of racial discrimination in public accommodations on Inter* state commerce." But aside from the business ef frets, he told the Senate Commerce Committee, the legislation is necessary because "discriminatory practices are inconsistent with our democratic Ideals." The bill, applying to hotels, motels, restaurants, stores and other privately owned establishments serving the public and having a substantial effect on interstate commerce, is a key part of President Kennedy's civil rights programs. At the outset of today's hearing, Sen. Norris Cotton, R-N.H., raised the question of how the Commerce Committee is going to handle both the public accommodations bill and the measure submitted by Kennedy Monday to avoid a rail shutdown in the dispute over work rules. "Are we going to recess the hearings on civil rights to devote full time to the railroad bill or are we going to try to carry one on each shoulder?" asked Cotton, top GOP member of the committee. An executive session was set up for later in the day to make that decision. Roosevelt, in his testimony, said denial of equal treatment to Negroes and other minority groups in places of public accommodation is most critical in the South but occurs in all sections of the na:ion "and is one of the most gall- ng facts of life in the United States today." In calling federal legislation indispensable, he said state and local actions are insufficient and voluntary action by businessmen to desegregate their establishments 'has proved to difficult and sporadic to eliminate discrimination n the near future." uties visited the place Friday night and rounded up several youths. Deputies obtained statements from two of the underage patrons hat they were served alcoholic jeverages at the tavern located near the Shell Oil Co. refinery. Justice Vuagniaux said today the operators of the tavern were ordered to appear at 10 a.m. Aug. 3 for a hearing on complaint by Chief Deputy Sheriff George Ra- mach. The taven proprietors are represented by Attorney James Massa of Collinsville. Finder of Lost Property Retires NEW YORK (AP) — Daniel J.

(AP Wire* photo) Asks CD Fund So Bills Can Be Paid The finance cdrmtilttee df city council has asked the city comptroller fo cdntef with the city counselor and determine if some transfers of funds to a total of $860 can be made within Alton's appropriation for civil defettge. Civil Defense Director A< G. Deucker appeared before ; the finance group Monday night'and asked approval of the fund transfers so that necessary bills unprovided for by the budget can be paid. He explained many essential needs were trimnied out of the budget asked by the civil defense commission when its appropriation for the current year was reduced before the annual city appropriation ordinance was enacted. Some oilier funds are either unneeded or contain surplus amounts, he said, and the transfers requested should enable the commission to carry on with its program to the end of the year. City Comptroller H. B. Ramey told the committee that he was unable to pay the claims not di-! rectly covered by the $6,500 civil defense appropriation, and endorsed the need for the fund transfers. Finance Chairman Maitlanc Timmermiere expressed doubt as to the authority of the committee to transfer the funds even though it would make no change in the total appropriation for the commission. He asked Ramey to get a ruling from City Counsellor J. W. Hoefert, and the matter was laid over for two weeks. Also laid over by the committee pending a further report was a request from the police magistrate, presented through Comptroller Ramey, that pay for an extra clerk in his court be approved. Ramey said that the -magistrate's court has been handling a number of non-local state cases and that an extra clerk has oeen used in connection with :hese cases. The city is receiving fees for the handling of these non-local cases, about $75 for the first month, and $275 last month, he said, and this income might offset the extra clerk salary cost. Ramey was asked to get the matter threshed out with the city attorney so it could have later disposition. Alderman John McConnell Jr said he believes the city should be receiving more revenue from cases appealed or taken on venue changes from the mag istrate to justice of the peace courts, or other courts, and asked that this also be invest! gated and reported to the com mittee. Also asked by McConnell Jr was a report whether the city has renewed a contract with thi Animal Aid Association for im pounding services. Routine bills as submitted b; the comptroller were allowed after the usual audit procedure Chairman Timmermiere noted there was no allowance for com. pensation of the mayor as liquor control commissioner, and that such a claim, now being contested as to its validity by a private injunction suit, would not come up until next month. Presented Details Representatives of Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. presented details of a group life and medical insurance program which the city might obtain foi its employes in replacement of a present insurance plan. The council has been considering such a change. It was shown the plan would cost about $10,000 of which the city would pay a portion, possi bly one fourth. Cost per month to participants with dependents would be $16.83. Participation by 75 per cen of city employes would be required for the group policy to be issued. City Comptroller Ra> mey said the city has about 20E employes exclusive of those of the parks, recreation, and library commissions. Hospital Tests For Magiiusou SEATTLE, Wash.
