WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1963 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS 13 Court Upholds Kerner Right To Veto Remap SPRINGFIELD, III. (AP) Hie Illinois Supremo Court said Tuesday the stnte Constitution fails to disclose any intention that the governor should have no part in reapportionment. The hiph court said it had been the custom in Ihe past that reappointment bills pussed by the legislature were submitted to the governor for his action. "If there had been an intention to change this custom in 1954," the court added, "it would have been expressed in clear and unmistakable terms." These findings were contained in an opinion filed today and giving reasons for upholding Gov. Otto Honor's veto of a bill to redistrict the Illinois House. The court on Nov. 13 affirmed Kerner'g action but withheld its full opinion. The case involved an appeal by Slate Rep. Gale Wlliama, R- Murphysboro, who argued the legislature had exclusive authority over reaportionment Williams contended the assembly had met terms of a 1954 Constitution amendment in agreeing on reapportionment by July 1. Because of Kerner's veto, the mission came into existence. The commission Is facing a deadline Saturday to solve the problem. Q—What was the name of Paris, France, in Roman times? —Paris wns then a small fishing village called Lutetia.

Pretty soon you'll have to make twice as many deliveries!" By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)-Sidewalk comments of a Pavement Plato: There are those who predict that in time man, who as yet cannot control himself, will bo able to control the weather. The prosprcl of such a victory by science has only one pleasing aspect to most of visit probably won't happen in our own lifetime. In 1890 in the Hartford Courant, Charles Dudley Warner, a friend of Mark Twain, wrote the most widely quoted observation ever made about the weather, a remark which most people attribute to Twain himself "Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it." The profound irony of this observation is based on the truth that, at least until recently, there wasn't much a fellow could do about the weather except to accept it, enjoy it, complain about it and, when necessary, take what steps he could to protect himself from it. The weather has been the Creator's greatest instrument for teaching humility to arrogant man. No other device, not even that devil-inspired Instrument, the income tax, has done so much in this respect—to keep man reasonably humble, or at least restrain him from overreaching himself with excessive and unreasonable schemes based on his. own selfish desire to have his own way. Rain falls upon the just and the unjust with a fine and moist impartiality. With the same grand and unconscious impartiality, the weather blows down a farmer's barn with a tornado, starts a forest fire with a lightning bolt, speeds 10 times 10 billion seeds to spurts of growth, assassinate a wilderness of bloom with killing frost, or freezes a lake so children can go ice skating. In childhood and youth, we pay little heed to the weather except to complain about it querulously as it frustrates our dreams. But as a man grows older, he learns to apreciate the weather and its moods more. He develops a love as well as an awe tor all its endless vagaries, its deep and changing chords of peace and unrest so like the music In his own soul. No wonder it is of such incessant and timeless interest to him. Who doesn't look with some apprehension upon a future when controllers of the atmos- pere will inflict their choices of the weather upon us? Do we really want to do much more about the weather than go right on talking about it?
