Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 16, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOL. LI No. 96 30 A, B APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., FRIDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Danger Lessens In California Fire Districts Flames Still Out Of Control But Winds Die Down Los pros- pect of favorable wind condi- tions stirred modest optimism today as men opened the fourth day of fighting against a hungry foothill brush fire. The sprawling fire, blamed on a careless smoker, was still out of control after cov- Asks Laws to Help Prevent Youth Crimes New York Mayor Robert F. Wagner wants new state laws to quell youth crime in New York City. Wagner yesterday revealed his "anti-juvenile delinquen- cy" program and said it rep- resents the joint findings and recommendations of New York's five district attorneys, the police department, the city administrator's office, the youth board, and the city's corporation counsel. Among the suggested laws: Lower the age of prosecu- tion for major crimes from 16 to 15. License all dealers in rifles and shotguns and require them to keep proper records Industry Agrees on Study of Union's Plan to En a11 tne'r transactions, ering more than acres other Proposals northeast of Los Angeles, and officials said they couldn't es- timate when it might be tam- ed. The county fire department said the situation was improv- ing. Firefighters regard calm air as a formidable ally, and the wind forecast called for no gusts early today. Situation Improves The fire was fiercest on its northwestern front, where it pushed into big Tujunga can- yon. Two to three dozen resi- dents of La Paloma Flats in the canyon were evacuated last night and taken to Tu- junga, in the extreme north- east section of Los Angeles. The fire had reached none of the homes in this area. The fire earlier had men- aced La Canada, Altadena and other communities to the southeast toward Los An- geles proper. These areas ap- peared out of danger today. A punishable offense for anyone under 21 to possess in public a knife or sharp-j pointed or cutting instrument. Illegal possession of a weapon by one or more mem- bers of an unlawfully assem- bled group would be consid- ered illegal possession by all members of the group. Carrying of an exposed, loaded pistol or revolver would become a felony. Un- der present law it is a felony only if the pistol or revolver is concealed. Illegal possession of weap- ons by two or more persons in a public group would be "presumptive evidence" that the group was unlawfully as- sembled. Wagner said he had in- structed Bernard Ruggieri, his legislative representative at Albany, to present the pro- gram immediately to Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller.

Speaking to the closing ses- sion of the League of Wis- consin 'Municipalities conven- tion here, Nelson said he was studying seven plans for the "temporary meeting of our budget problem." "I might recommend with- holding again this fall and take another licking on it, but I think it is important enough to get public he said. No Doubt Nelson said there was no doubt in his mind that a with- holding system would become part of state income taxes within six or eight years be- cause it is absolutely essen- tial for the collection of tax- es not paid. He put this fig- ure at as much as yearly. The fall session will have lo raise in additional revenue to balance the budget adopted this summer and the one to be acted on for the second year of the biennium, Nelson said. "I hope that in our formu- Posf-Crescenf Sold 30 More people now read the Post Crescent than ever before. is Nelson said in the only remark which drew applause during his talk. Nelson again said he did not propose to discuss possible new tax plans while the com- mittee was at work, an ap- parent reference to the sales tax versus expanded income tax debate.

The industry said it would be studied. The union proposal was advanced at the first session of new direct negotiations, undertaken at government prodding. This meeting broke up after about an hour and 43 minutes. David J. McDonald, union president, confirmed at that (time reports of a new un- He declined discussion today dealing mainly with trade.

Cooper said, "are endeavoring to reach an through an_ interpreter, saidiagreement lo scttle thls issue by collective bargaining." Well-placed sources said that the union offer was for a 21-cent per hour package over a 2-year contract period. Added Benefits It would provide for in- creased insurance, pension and supplementary unemploy- ment benefits the first year of the agreement, ac- cording to these reports, and a wage boost in the second year. There were unconfirmed re- ports that Kaiser Steel Corp. was near agreement with the union to accept this proposal. If so, it would crack the indus- try's solid front. In response to inquiries about this, Kaiser issued a statement saying Kaiser Steel corporation has no written or verbal agreement or any commitment to enter into an agreement with the Steelworkers union.

Want Canada in OAS The president said it has al- ways been an aspiration of the Latin American states to have Canada join the Organization of American States but that this was a matter which only Canada could decide. He -also said he envisages a frep trade area hi Latin Amer- ica, and that he is convinced there will be an improvement in U. S.-Latin American rela- tions. He said he has already re- ceived several telegrams, in- cluding one from President Juscelmo Kugitschek of Bra- zil, supporting his actions dur- ing his Washington visit. The president visited the na- tional research council and lunched with Diefenbaker at the prime minister's home. Later today, the president plans a sight-seeing trip in the Gatineau hills north of the capital and will give a formal dinner for Gov.-Gen. George Vanier. He will leave tomorrow for Niagara Falls, Ontario, for a private visit. Turn to Page 6, Col. 1 Drunken Drivers Since Jan. 1 273. Harold F.
