Quiz Rubirosa on Hpt Issues Await Legislature : NEW YORK —{^)—international playboy Porfirio iRubirosa was questioned by ;an assistant district attorney for almost three hours about a 1935 slaying here. He left ;the session with a subpena to appear before a grand jury on Tuesday. The questioning by Asst. Dist. Atty. Alexander Herman, head of the homicide bureau, dealt with the murder of Sergio Bencosme, an anti-Trujillo exile from the Dominican Republic shot to death April 28, 1935. A grand jury in 1936 indicted a first cousin of Rubi­ rosa for the slaying, but he never was apprehended. Rubirosa, stripped of his diplomatic immunity when he was ousted as a Dominican diplomat last Tuesday, appeared voluntarily at the dis trict attorney's office. "I know nothing about this," the one-time son-in- law of the assassinated Dominican dictator, Rafael Trujillo, told newsmen as hS entered. Meg's Mate Gets Newspaper Job LONDON —(/P)— The Earl of Snowden will take a salaried job when he and Princess Margaret return from the West Indies.

Former City Manager of Beloit Dies at 76 MADISON — iff) — Withi tax revision out of the way, the 1961 Legislature returns Monday to a .docket of legislation that seems likely to provide a wild windup for the longest session in Wisconsin's history. Among the controversial items awaiting action are bills and resolutions dealing with school bus rides for parochial students, bank taxes, a proposed study of textbooks used in Wisconsin schools, a pay raise for legislators, medical care for the aged and reapportionment. The session began Jan. 11, 1961, recessed Aug. 12, reconvened Oct. 30, recessed for the Thanksgiving holiday and returned to pass a tax revision proposal as the year ended. 268 Days in Session So far, lawmakers have been in sesS'ion 268 days including weekends and holidays. The record for the longest session was set by the 1939 Legislature which ran 270 days. The 1959 session lasted 269 days. As it begins its second year, the Legislature finds two hot issues awaiting Senate action. The Assembly has approved a compromise bill to provide state aid for public school bus transportation of parochial students. The measure is a compro- Old Vic Troupe to Leave for U. S. LONDON —(i ^P)— The Old Vic classical theater will start on a North American tour Thursday. Headed by actor John Clements and Michael Benthall, director of the Old Vic, the company will make a six- month tour of the United States and Canada. They begin with an appearance in Boston and will visit New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver. The program will consist of three plays: Shakespeare's "Macbeth" and "Romeo and and Shaw's "Saint BILOXI, Miss.—(^)—Harrison G.

Exhibit MOSCOW—(^)—A delegation left by plane Saturday for New York to set up a Soviet exhibition of children's technical and artistic endeavors in the Brooklyn Museum, Tass said. Some 800 works have been shipped to the United States to be put on show. They include models of diesel locomotives and drawings and sculptures by children of pre-school age. The exhibition will run three months. LONDON— (/P)— Historians have always had the idea that King Henry VIII had a lousy court. Now experts have the fleas to prove it. Archaeologist Michael Green found the mummified bodies of the fleas during excavations on the site of Henry VIII's palace of Whitehall. One part of the palace may have been a court dressmaker's rooms. It was there Green found numerous thimbles, dress pins, leather and pieces of cloth. The mummified fleas were found in the cloth. mise worked out by a conference committee and provides that buses transport parochial school children to the public school nearest a pupil's destination. Lawmakers report the issue has provoked a flood of mail from constituents on both sides of the question. Textbook Study An Assembly resolution which has generated a lot of heat is the textbook study. When it passed the Assembly, opponents called the proposed study "the first step toward book burning." Offered by three Republican assemblymen, the resolution states that high school graduates "do not have a true concept of the meaning of our free society" and that books used "discourage individualism and glamorize one- world government." The resolution would set up a study committee of three legislators and three public members to issue a public report on history and social science textbooks. Joint Session When he signed the tax revision bill Gov. Gaylord Nelson indicated that he may go before a joint session to request higher taxes on banks. The tax revision bill was amended in the final dayi before passage to knock out $1 million of the tax on banks and leave the additional lev>' at $125,000 a year. Nelson feels this is not "a fair share" of the added tax burden. Also pending is a bill to levy a franchise tax on financial institutions. The legislative pay raise bill would increase lawmakers' salaries from $300 to $450 per month and provide $15 a day expenses when the Legislature is in session. The $15 a day would replace the present $175 a month room and board allowance. Part of Measure The bill is part of a measure increasing the salaries of state department heads, constitutional officers and Supreme Court justices. There are three versions of legislation to implement the federal Kerr-Mills Act and provide medical assistance to some 175,000 of Wisconsin's! aged citizens. One, supported by the state medical society, would cost about $5 million a year and assist persons over 65 who are unable to meet unexpected medical bills. Little Possibility About a dozen bills to reapportion Wisconsin's Senate, Assembly and Congressional districts on the basis of the 1960 federal census are in legislative committees. There seems little possibility that reapportionment will be accomplished this session. Another highly controversial measure would extend collective bargaining rights to municipal employes and their unions. The Wisconsin Employment Relations Board would be authorized to deal with unfair labor practices, arbitrate disputes and act as a factfinder and mediator in municipal employment situations. The Legislature also is ex­ pected to make provision for interim studies of the legislative process, conservation activities, state administrative organization, the cost of state and local government, teenage drinking, county teachers colleges and water resources.

WASHINGTON—Wisconsin Rapids-Stevens Point, Wis., w'ere awarded increased service by North Central Airlines in a ruling handed down by the Civil Aeronautics Board. North Central was author-''^'"^l- ized to serve Wisconsin Rapids-Stevens Point temporarily on its Route No. 10 be-| tween Minneapolis-St. Pauli and Milwaukee.
