2 \\ South End Reporter, Thursday, March 10,1977 Rep. strict Murphy votes for ethics package Compiles Ridge history Fran Warren, librarian of the Ridge Historic society, examines pictures of the Hortons, long connected with the Ridge's memory Jane Library gift adds historic collection Historical society's vertical file of newspaper cjippings, pamphlets, program booklets, maps, pic- tires and other items has been expanded by one-third with the addition of more tan 1,000 sheets of mounted material from Walker Branch library's community flection. s Fran Warren, society II- tfrarian, has the rough interfiling, but much additional sorting needs to be done to make the assembled in- ffrrmation of more value to Researchers. «The system used by Mrs. Varren consists of preparing large legal-sized folders for every church, park ^chool and organization fithin^the Beverly Hills- Morgan Pafk-Mt. Green- ood-Washington Heights 10ther categories, such as £ime, politics, transportation, history, landmarks, legislation and special community events, also have separate folders. - ~ [ In cases where there is a great deal of material per- tfunlng to a specific group, subdivisions are set up to lender-better accessibility. All are arranged in alphabetical order. The RHS librarian has spent hundreds of hours since the fall of 1974 marking, clipping and filing everything that could be of possible historic significance from four community newspapers and back issues that have been donated, plus collections of clippings preserved by area residents and now turned over to the society. Walker library's gift has greatly enhanced the collection, Kirs. Warren said. Because the task of putting thousands of items within the categories into chronological order and mounting them is more than one person can handle, the suggestion .has been made that "pasting parties" be held at the society headquarters in the spring. Representatives from churches, PTAs, parks, banks, businesses, organizations etc. would be invited on a specific evening to come armed with scissors and glue for the purpose of seeing what materials are on hand, helping,to arrange and mount them" and returning to their parent Chicago Bridge and Iron conpuy, wfcose flag pole stands in the front lawn of the society's headquarters.

Murphy (D-2nd) has voted for a House ethics code with strict financial disclosure requirements and a limit on* the amount of income a representative 'may earn by working outside of Congress. The ethics code, recom-. mended by a panel headed by Rep. David Obery* (D- Wis.), passed the House 402 to 22. . ; The ethics panel said the code is necessary to increase public confidence in government and to eliminate potential conflicts of interest. "This is a good ethics package," Murphy said. It is not perfect--it fails to establish a regular audit procedure for all congressional expenses. "Nor does it deal with payroll abuses, a major cause for creating the ethics panel. "But on the whole, the code will help ensure that elected officials are maintaining the highest ethical standards" The code requires congressmen to publicity disclose their sources and amount of income each year. In addition, real estate .'holdings, debts and other fi- ; nancisl transactions must be disclosed. Under the previous code, only the sources of income had to be revealed. Specific dollar amounts were confl- dentally reported to the House ethics committee. The limit on outside earned income provoked the most controversy. Murphy, a practicing lawyer, arped that the limit on "earned" income is unfair because there is no -similar limit on "investment" income. The distinction would affect members performing personal services, such as lawyers, but would not apply to members earning income from stock holdings, family farms and family businesses. The provision limits outside earned income to 15 per cent of a representative's salary, or $8,625 a year. During the floor debate, Murphy said the limit on outside earned income treated some representatives "more equally than others." Murphy argued that public financial disclosure would enable voters to decide at election time whether a member's outside income posed a conflict of interest South End Reporter Published every Wednesday afternoon at 5959 S.
