Otto Kerner opposes Federal aid to education and believes local school districts should assume the biggest share of that cost. He made the statement after receiving criticism for vetoing an increase of state aid to school districts. "I believe local governments would prefer to keep control of educational programs and that they are willing to assume the lion's share of responsibility for education," he told a press conference. "Isn't this somewhat of a departure from what you said when you campaigned in 1960?" the governor was asked. "Did you not say then that the state's share of educational cost should be more?" Didn't Say That "No, I didn't say that," Gov. Kerner replied. "I said the state should pay its proportionate share." The state aid bill he vetoed would have increased the state's maximum aid per pupil payments from $252 to $297 a year. "At no time when I was considering my veto," he said, "did any supporter of the bill, come to me and offer information as to why I should approve it," he told newsmen. "I purposely waited until almost last to see how much money the general revenue fund would produce." "Would you have approved this bill if there had been enough money in the general revenue fund?" the governor was asked. Would Have Approved "I certainly would have," he said. The governor also said that his mail reaction to his veto of the bill is running heavily in support of his action. At the same press conference, he also named his four appointees to the new state crime commission and then later, called the first commission meeting for 10 Monday morning in his office. It has been reported that the commission's agenda is already prepared — that investigative matters are already scheduled. Election of a chairman will be among the commission's first order of business. A not-too-well publicized meeting in Chicago between two of the state's leading Republicans has partially cleared the troubled air about possible conflicts in two major candidacies. Discuss Ambitions Illinois Secretary of State Charles F. Carpentier, currently polled among members of his own party as the leading contender for the gubernatorial nomination next year, and State Sen. Arthur Bidwill, the Senate's president pro tern and majority leader, discussed the latter's ambitions for the lieutenant governoi nomination. Carpentier makes no secret that he opposes, at this time, Bidwill's desire for that nomination. The two have been the closest of friends for more than 30 years.. A statement issued after their meeting, said Bidwill was not a candidate "as such," but while he made no secret of his opposition, Carpentier also said that if Bidwill changes his mind and decides to be a candidate for that lieutenant governor nomination, "I'll have to be for him." Jersey Pickets Upheld The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that picketing by AFL-CIO and Teamster unions against Jerseyville merchants was valid and dismissed a complaint issued earlier. The ruling nullified a com- plant issued by Salvatore Costen- io NLRB Regional Director on behalf of a charge field filed by the Jerseyville Retail Merchants Assn. The NLRB ruled the picketing was informational. On injunction was issued by Judge Poos of the Federal District Court to halt the picketing on a petition filed by Cosentino. The charge was brought against the Alton - Wood River Building Construction Trades Council composed of the Retail Store Employees, Local 344, Local 553 of the Pipefitters and Teamsters Local 646.
