Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune (Newspaper) - June 19, 1963, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin AMsconsni A C O Tribune A C O N S T R U C T I V E N E W S PAPER Fiftieth Year Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, Wednesday, June 19, 1963 Single Copy Ten Cents JFK Asks Broadest Rights Plan Since Lincoln Realignment Bill Passed In Assembly MADISON As- sembly passed a bill realign- ing Wisconsin's legislative districts Tuesday, but the action did nothing to head off a court fight over reap- portionment between the gover- nor and the' Legislature. By a 47-45 vote, the Assembly Bykovky was in his fifth day ______i _ in snafp. Miss in her Cosmonauts Are Down and Safe, Russ Announce MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union's man-woman space duet returned safely to earth with a record 82 orbits and she with 49, landing in virgin lands area the Soviet news agency Tass said. Lt. Col. Vatery Bykovsky and his blonde, dimple-chinned partner, Vslentina Tereshkova, ended flights in their separate space ve- hicles, Tass said. approved a Republican-sponsored bill which Democratic Gov. John W. Reynolds already has said he will veto. Three minor amendments were adopted by the Assembly and the measure was returned to the Sen- ate for action on them. Reynolds and Democratic law- makers object to the measure be- cause it holds Milwaukee Coun- ty's Assembly representation to 24 seats. Democrats contend the slate's largest county is entitled to 26 seats on the basis of popula- tion. The governor already has ini- tiated a State Supreme Court ac- tion to force reapportionment of Senate and Assembly districts. He has said it is obvious that Repub- licans will not give Milwaukee County 26 seats. Huher Promises Bailie Assembly action on the bill was swift and took only an hour. Dem- ocratic Floorleader Robert Huber of West Allis said the bill's pas- sage is "only round one." He accused Republicans of "sending a bill to a veto and at the same time establishing a rec- ord of having done something in an attempt to buffalo the courts into settling for something less than what the constitution pro- vides." The final vote was largely along party lines. The single Democrat voting for the measure was Vin- cent Malhews of Waukesha. Un- der the bill, Waukesha would gain two Assembly seats for a total of four. One of the two seats made available by enlarging districts in the northeast section of the slate. in space, Miss Tereshkova in her third. Tass said Valentina landed about 380 miles northeast of Kara- ganda, a coal mming center in the central Asian republic of Kaz- akhstan; and Bykovsky about 330 miles northwest. Both in Good Shape "The cosmonauts are feeling Tass reported. "The flight has ended successfully." Loudspeakers carried the news to joyous Moscovues. Television and radio stations also flashed the word. Bykovsky landed at p.m. and Valentina came down about three hours earlier at a.m., Moscow time, Tass said. Bykovsky went L.to space at 3 p.m. last Friday, while Valentina was launched at p.m. Sun- day. Many Greet Them "At the landing points the cos- Senate Would On the Senate Change It side, the bill would increase Waukesha Coun- ty's representation by taking Jef- ferson County out of the present district. Northern counties would be somewhat realigned to make available additional representa- tion for Waukesha. Three Republicans voted against the bill.' They were Paul Dailey of Elcho, Merrill Stal- baum of Waterford and Fred Reger of Merrill. After passing the GOP bill, the Assembly voted 52-34 to kill a Democratic sponsored measure thai would have given Milwaukee Counly 26 assembly seats. Changes in Outdoor Plan In other action the assembly passed legislation to implement the million outdoor resource program in 1963-fi5 and make sweeping changes in the admin- istration of the 10-year plan. The measure, which outlines spending of about S10 million in the next two years, would abolish the priority list of projects and the Slate Recreation Committee. Opponents of the measure, led by Norman Anderson, D-Madi- son. contended that to turn the entire program over to the Con- servation Commission would lead to a diversion of funds from land acquisition to adminis t r a t i v e costs. The program is financed by a penny-a-pack cigarette lax and was a major accomplishment of the administration of Gov. Gay- lord Nelson, a Democrat. Governor on Committee The Recreation Committee has guided the program since its start in 1961. The committee comprises Hie governor, the heads of the Stale Departmcnl of Public Wel- fare and the Highway and representatives of the Slate Soil and Conservation Service find the Department of Resource De- velopment.

The Slate Supreme Court ap- pointed Wingert special master after John Reynolds, then the Democratic Attorney General and governor, brought action in federal court to force the 1961 Legislature to rcapportion itself. A Federal court panel heard Reynolds' petition and told him he could bring aclion again in August, 1963, if Ihe Lcgislalurc had nol realigned Assembly and Senate districts by that time.

Arraigned in County Court on burglary charges were Louis Narcl, 25, 2040 Sampson St., and Wayne Kuentjcs, 28, Rt. t, Ros- holt. They failed to post bonds of each and are being held in the county jail. Judge Frederick A. Fink set the preliminary hear- ing for the pair for July 15. Obtain Statement Sheriff Donald Caylor said to- day that Kuentjes had signed a statement admitting his part in the theft. Lt. Donald Knuth of the city police department said a tip from alert citizens, plus'Ihe cooperalion of the sheriff's department and state traffic patrol officers, led to the arrests. The cabinet taken from the Garber building was found Friday morning in Cranberry Creek in the town of Seneca. Couple Saw Car A Vesper couple came to the police department Saturday morn- ing, Knuth said, and told Chief R, J. Exner that they saw a car Iravcling on W. Grand Avc. about midnighl Thursday with a cabinet in the trunk. They said they did not become suspicious until .tlicy read the account of the break-in in Friday's Tribune. Sheriff Caylor spoiled matching the description given by Ihe couple at a town of Saratoga residence Saturday afternoon, and Kuentjes was founci to be 'the owner. A state patrol officer and city police officer apprehended Kuent- jes in a town of Grand Rapids bar aboul 3 p.m. Saturday. Narcl was arrested Sunday. Elect Stevens Point Woman _ Head of New Scout Council Mrs. Patrick Stevens Point, first vice president, years; Mrs. Robert Oapling, St. N., was sentenced Tuesday lo six months in the county Jail after he pleaded guilty in County Court to the May 14 theft of S20 in coins from five vending ma- chines at the east side Normington Laundromatic. Judge Frederick A. Fink or- dered another six month sentence to run concurrently for Nystrom, who also pleaded guilty to the April 29 theft of six radiators from a town of Grand Rapids salvage dealer. Nystrom had pleaded not guilty on April 30 to the salvage yard theft and was released on his own recognizance. Nystrom is presently serving out two years' probation which was ordered on Jan. 24. 1962, when__ __ he was convicted of four counts j consjn "Girf Scout "council" of Wis- STEVENS POINT Mrs. John Joanis, Stevens Point, was elected "and installed as president of the newly or- gariized'Woodland Girl Scout Council at a meeting here Tuesday night. She will hold office for a three-year term. The entire 'slate of candidates submitted by a nominat- ing committee headed by Mrs. Robert Rowland, Wisconsin Rapids, was approved. Other officers, and their terms, are: two Pittsville, second vice president, three years; Mrs. Ralph Boyer, Wisconsin Rapids, third vice president, two years; Mrs. A. M. Trierweiler, Stevens Point, sec- retary, one year, and Mrs. James Bambacht, Wisconsin Rapids, treasurer, three years.

Another year of run ordered for Nystrom on Feb. 26 of this, year when he pleaded guilty to disor- derly conduct. As a condition of the sentence pronounced Tuesday, Judge Fmk stipulated that if Ny- strom's probation is revoked, the concurrent six month terms were to. run concurrent with the one year sentence at the Green Bay State Reformatory which had been withheld.

Two year terms were assigned to Mrs. Bruce-Sanborn, Wisconsin Rapids; Mrs. Kenyon Follett, Coloma; Mrs. Robert Hein, Ad- ams, and Arthur J. Levinson, Stevens Point. Directors whose terms will ex- pire next year are Mrs. J. K. Vanatta, Port Edwards, and Miss Leah Diehl, Mrs. Elmer Ross and Mrs. Ben Weronke, all of Stevens Point. The officers and directors wore installed by Mrs. E. M. McCourt, Wisconsin Rapids, who is a mem- ber of the regional Girl Scout committee. Also representing the national Scouting organization was Miss Shirley Hutchmson, Chicago, who is council advisor for Re- gion 7. Seek Professional Help Referring to the inability of either of the two merged councils to attract "and hold a professional staff, Mrs. Joanis, in her in- augural remarks, told the coun- cil that 'there is more than one waj to lick a problem, and the Woodland Council proves it." It is hoped that the enlarged council will be in position to em- ploy both a professional director and a field worker. The president presented a bou- quet of flowers to Mrs. Emerson Lind, Coloma, who since 1960 has headed the "Project 81" study committee which brought about the merger. No changes were made in the proposed by-laws, which were pre- sented by Mrs. Ray Bernas of Stevens Point. Mrs. Lind served as chairman of the organizational meeting, wilh Mrs. Frank Fey of Wisconsin Rapids as acting secretary. J. K. Hendee, Stevens Point, acted as parliamentarian. Group singing was led by Mrs. Capling, and Mrs. Perry Saito, Stevens Point, sang a solo. "Invo- 7 Riot Troops Remove Negro Demonstrators in Gadsden GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) Some 300 to 350 Negroes maintaining a protest vigil on the courthouse lawn were dispersed early today when a force of about 100 state troopers moved in to clamp a tight security lid on this racially troubled city. The riot-lrained Iroopers, under the command of Ool Albert Lin- go, stale public safety direclor, quickly broughl an end to the vi- gil started after the arrest of 396 demonstrators Tuesday. The Ne- groes had said they would contin- ue unlil Ihose arresled were re- leased. The arrival nr the state troop- ers, who used night sticks and electric prods to run off the Ne- the crowd of about 200 white spectators, ended for Ihe time being the threat of a full-scale conflict.

Ot the Negroes being held, Col- vard said, "They'll stay in jail unlil the judge decides what lo do with them." The Negroes will go before Cir- cuit Judge A.B.

Pattern Is Familiar The familiar pattern of racial Today's Chuckle More twins arc being born these days. Maybe kids lack the courage to come into this world alone. disputes was emerging despite ef- forts by police lo avoid arrests. For eight days, there had been few arrests although hundreds of Negroes marched through lown repeatedly, even extending their efforts lo a suburban shopping center. Their demands were similar to Ihose elsewhere in Ihe ter job opportunities, desegrega- tion of public facilities such as lunch counters and rest rooms, and formation of a biracial study committee to seek answers to ra- cial problems." Both Sides Adamant The situation appeared headed for a showdown wilh both sides declaring a no-budge posilion. Mayor Lesley Gilliland said that the place to seltle issues was in the courts and Ihe slores and streets. He was backed up by two slate court in- junctions forbidding the Negroes from extraordinary lions such as lying demonstra- in front of doorways and on sidewalks. Negro leaders said nothing would slop the campaign. Five-Point Program Urges Total Equality WASHINGTON (AP) President Kennedy sent Con- gress a five-point civil rights program today which he said provides "the most responsible, reasonable and ur- gently needed solutions to this problem." Kennedy outlined in a special message a legislative package that amounts to one of the broadest civil rights programs proposed in nearly a century. The major aims of the program are to give Negroes equal accommodations in such public facilities as restau- rants, hotels, theaters and recreational areas; to speed school desegregation; to provide "fair and full employment1'; to set up on the federaj level through executive action a community re- lations service to work with local biracial groups, and to bar federal assistance to "any program or activity in which racial discrimi- nation occurs." Asks Extended Session The program is certain to set off long weeks of heated debate in Congress, particularly about the sections on discrimination by pri- vately owned public accommoda- tions and a bar against federal aid for activities in which such discrimination occurs. In obvious anticipation of that battle, Kennedy asked Congress to "stay in session this year until it has as a sin- gle omnibus most re- sponsible, reasonable and urgent- ly needed solutions" to race rela- tions difficulties. He asked every member of Con- gress to "set aside sectional and political ties, and to look at this issue from the viewpoint of the nation." Asks Equal Entry On the point of privately owned facilities serving the public, Ken- nedy said simply that he was pro- posing "a provision to guarantee all citizens equal access to the services and facilities of hotels and restaurants, places of amuse- ment and retail establishments." While the message did not go into detail, a draft bill also sent to Congress by Kennedy said that all persons should be entitled "to the full and equal enjoyment of Senate Action Is Set Next Week on Budget MADISON (AP) Gov. John W. Reynolds' proposal to break the budget-tax stalemate by linking an income tax increase to extension of the sales tax faced an un- certain future Tuesday as the Senate scheduled the meas- ure for floor action next week. The Legislature will have only one week in which to meet the June 30 target date for passage of a state budget and tax bill. A new fiscal year begins July 1. Much of the time leading up to per cenl lo individual income tax the full dress debate on Monday will be spent in legislative party caucuses as supporters of the compromise seek to line up a coalilion of Dcmocrals and Re- publicans to pass the bill. Dems Are in Dilemma Initially, individual legislators are finding it difficull to accom- modate Ihemselves to accepting a proposal lhat includes much of what Ihey might favor, bul also a heavy dose of features they op- pose. Thus, Democrats who are death on the idea of any kind of a sales tax would have to accept il in order to get an increase in the income lax. Republicans who favor sole re- liance on a general sales tax lo meet Ihe slate's need for addi- lional revenue would have lo ac- cept a two-fiflhs of one per cenl addilion lo income lax rales. 'Compromise' Questioned Just how much of an "agreed" compromise the governor's pro- posal is remained a question. In- dividual Democrats and Republi- cans tended to view the package dimly and refused to go on record as favoring il. There also was some grumbling at the exact balance struck be- tween spending provisions in the budget and the proposed new revenue measures. The complainl is that the fax package contains a built-in deficit of at least million for the next Legislature lo cope with. The million is the one-shol wind- fall realized by inauguraling the quarterly withholding of corpor- ate income taxes. Collection of the individual income tax in- crease for 29 months instead of 24 will add another million lo million to the built in deficit. Reynolds' proposal would raise an estimated million in taxes for to balance a million budget. The addition o[ two-fifths of one rales, retroactive to Jan I, would raise million of the new rev- enue total. The remainder includes a million windfall from the quar- terly withholding of corporate in- come taxes: million from elim- inating property tax relief for utilities and railroads: mil- lion from a bank franchise tax; million fiom new taxes on liquor, beer and cigarettes; and million from a sales lax on business equipment. Extension of the sales lax lo numerous items would bring in Lhe remaining million. Reynolds' bill would completely remove the personal properly lax on farm liveslock and merchants' and manufacturers' inventories at a cost of million. Corporate deduction of federal income taxes would also be elim- inated. Hoover Better; Almost Miracle, Spokesman Says NEW YORK (AP) Former President Herbert Hoover has made "an almost miraculous im- provement" from his illness, a family spokesman said today. The spokesman, Neil MacNeil, said "his family and his friends, as well as his physicians, are astounded by his vitality." MacNeil said no medical bul- letins would be issued after today if the former president, 88, con- tinues to improve. A bulletin this morning said there is no evidence that Hoover's present illness is connected with the cancer removed from his large intestine last August. The bulletin added had night SPAPFRI the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages and ac- commodations" of a number of what were termed "public estab- lishmenls." The proposed measure specifi- cally listed hotels and motels fur- nishing lodging to transienl guesls including travelers from other states; motion pictures, sports ar- enas, exhibition halls and other public places of amusement and entertainment which move in in- terstate commerce, and certain retail and department stores, markets, drugstores, gasoline stations, restaurants, lunch coun- ters and soda fountain. In that area of private enter- prise Kennedy already had lost the backing of the Republican congressional leadership. Uses Interstate Basis The proposed ban on discrimi- nalion by shops, stores, restau- rants and lunch counters would appJy to those establishments which provide services to inter- state travelers to a substantial de- gree, those offering goods which, in substantial portion, have moved in interatale commerce, and es- tablishments which otherwise sub- stantially affect interstate travel or the interstate movement of goods in commerce. The legislation offered by the administration says that discrim- ination in access, to accommoda- tions provided for the public comes within the scope not only of the interslale commerce clause of the Constitution but also the 14th Amendment which prohibits racial or religious discrimination. Other Attempts Lost Kennedy said the state and lo- cal approach and voluntary ef- forts, have been tried in ending discriminalion of the type dealt with in this key section of his pro- gram. "But these he said, "are insufficient to prevent the free flow of commerce from being arbitrarily and inefficiently restrained and distorted by dis- crimination." Kennedy said "an explosive na- tional problem cannot wait city- by-city solutions" and federal ac- lion is needed to "open doors in every part of the counlry which never should have been closed." Asks Funds for Training The special message discussed at length the employment prob- lems of Negroes, which Kennedy said are twice as burdensome as those facing the working force as a whole. In tins connection, he proposed additional broaden the federal manpower de- velopment and training program, more money to finance his pro- posed youth employment oppor- tunities program, and further ap- propriations for vocational educa- I'on. A price tag of something like a billion dollars was put on that program Tuesday by Sen. Hubert II. Humphrey D-Minn. Kennedy gave no breakdown on funds required for various pro- grams in Ihe jobs area bul said that, over-all, an additional S400 million would be needed for the fiscal year that begins July 1. To combat discrimination in empJoyment, Kennedy proposed that the committee on equal em- ployment opportunity, headed by Vice President Lyndon John- son, be given permanent stains. And he said he was renewing ear- lier support "of pending federal fair employment practices legisla- tion, applicable to both employers and unions." Asks School Authority Kennedy proposed that the at- torney general be given authority to initiate federal court actions against local school boards or public institutions of higher learn- ing whenever he receives a writ- ten complaint that students are denied equal protection of the laws by means of a segregated school and he can certify that such persons caanol afford to fi- T 'SPAPERJ
