Advocate (Newspaper) - July 23, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 119th 77 TELEPHONE HI H451 VICTORIA, TEXAS, JULY 23, 1964 ESTABLISHED ISM State Veto Written Into Poverty Bill Conld Win Voles in South WASHINGTON dent Jolmsoh's antipoyerty pro- gram sprouted an amendment Wednesday that may win South-1 ern support for the measure. And by laie afternoon, the Senate agreed to limit debate on the bil! itself to four hours, and to hold debate on each amend- ment to, one hour, reinforcing hopes of Senate leaders for pas- sage Thursday. The amendment would allow a governor of a stnle to veto federal plans to locate a youth camp in his state. Sonic Reluctance Sen. Pat MeNamara, D-Mich., floor manager of the bill, said he would accept the amendment with "some reluctance." It was offered by Sen. George A. Smathers, D-Fla., and passed by voice vole. The compromise and debate- limiting agreements came after a prime Republican foe of the measure had labeled one provi- sion "a litlle bit stupid." That opening attack camlatform. At one point, police (ired six shots in the air to disperse a crowd of two dozen Negroes who stood on a Bedford-Sluyve sant street corner chanting 'hey, hey, hey" in rhythm. A squad car bounded onto i..._ sidewalk, this one containing four officers. One held the rear door open and was swinging his nightstick at the Negroes, bu didn't hit any. hi: Mrs. E. B.

Design for New City Hall Under Study by Officials By TOM E. FITE Advocate Writer Although no work sessions have been called for the specific purpose, members of City Coun- cil and the administration al- ready have given a great deal of thought to the general design for a new city hall. Nfayor Kemper Williams Jr. Wednesday confirmed that dis- cussion to this point has indi- cated a building which will house a new police headquar- ters fronting on Church Street and city hall facilities fronting on Juan Linn Street. The complex envisioned by the administration would cover just about the area now covered by the city hall and its adjacent lawns, and would preserve the existing parking area. The building, as contemplated, would include a basement section and two above-ground stories. Williams said that "we don't know yet just what we are shooting at" in terms ot cost, but added that it is hoped the architects can come up with a foundation and structural design which would permit subsequent addition of "at least three more floors" and still be-within the city's current financial limita- tions, which could be expanded up- ward is desirable, Williams in- dicated, as a long range econ- omy.

In the first two court tests ot ic law, the court rejected at- ncks on the legislation's legali- y and issued injunctions igainst the Pickrick Restaurant nd the Heart of Atlanta Motel Corp.

The decisions were handed down by Chief Judge Elbert P. Tultle of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and Dlsl. Judges Frank A. Hooper and Lewis R. Morgan.

She is Angela Tavelli, 17, who will spend the next year as an exchange student with the G. J. Ayo family, and attend Naz- areth Academy High School un- der the International High School Student Program spon- sored by the Catholic Welfare Conference, Angela is still in Washington, D. C., and will not arrive in Victoria until Tuesday. But she has B good idea of what lo ex- pect in Victoria, partly from correspondence with her foster family, and particularly from a girl named Gabriella Colombo, a fellow counlryman who re- turned home last month after spending a year here with the H. S. Hcnstcy family as an ex- change student in Ihe same program. The Iwo girls have corre- sponded, and Gabriella has' given Angela the straight scoop on Victoria, including the neces- sary information on school, dating, clothes and other things important to 17-year-old girls.
