sessor's office, at a meeting last
night. This followed a conference
on Deschutes County Library fi
nancing, at which the court was
asked to put in writing its pro
posal that the division of respon
sibility be continued this year die
same as last
This would mean that the coun
ty would bear 60 per cent of the
cost of operating the library; the
City of Bend, 40 per cent. The pro
posal will be discussed when the
city budget committee begins
work in about three weeks.
Present at the library study
meeting were Judge D. L. Pen
hollow, County Commissioners
Fred Shepard and George Baker,
City Commissioner T. D. Sexton,
Maurice Shelton of the city bud
get committee and John Sten
kamp, chairman of the county
budget group.

The county's share of the $478,
873 welfare budget will be $73,811.
The assessor's budget is $73,160.
Representatives of the health
department presented firm fig

budget will be taken at a Liter
James McAlister, county exten
sion agent and secretary of the
County Planning Commission, was
present to explain the program of
federal matching money for coun
ty planning. He also discussed the
accomplishments of the agricul
tural experiment station in Red
mond, for which an Hem of $1200
has been tentatively allowed.
No Final Action
Final action was not taken on
either the county planning or ex
periment station items. The orig
inal asking for county planning
was $1,000.
Present were county court
members and budget committee
members Stenkamp, Priday
Holmes and Robert Whittier.
The county planners will meet
next time on Thursday. May 17,

pated that there will be several
more meetings.
The decision to hold the budget
within the six per cent limitation,
eliminating the necessity of hold
ing an election, gives plenty of
time to complete the figuring
before the June 1 deadline that
has been adopted.

wage action

recommendation ot a 10.2 cent an

the negotiating committee for the
It non-operating rail unions, said
the board's report "fails complete
ly to deal realistically with the is
sues" in the dispute.
Leighty said the railroad em

"Grave Inequity"
"In failing to make any reduc
tion in this grave inequity," he
said, "the board report departs
from all recognized standards of
justice in wage determination."
Leighty said the report "will be
of no assistance whatever in ar
riving at a settlement of the dis
President Kennedy hailed the
report, issued Thursday night, as
gratifying, and called on both
sides "to negotiate a responsible
and non-inflationary settlement in
their own and in the public in
But a spokesman for the 11 non-
operating railroad unions quickly
expressed distaste for the emer
gency board's proposals and the
railroads, judging from past
statements, seemed just as likely
to oppose them.
Under the Railway Labor Act,
the board's report automatically
prevents a strike for 30 days. But
the unions will be free to strike
any time after June 2, as they
have threatened to do.
Here are the board's recom
mendations compared to the po
sition taken by the unions and
the railroads:
Board Recommended a four-
cent an hour increase retroactive
to last Feb. 1 plus a 2'4 per cent
increase May 1. Government offi
cials said this would amount to
an average 10.4 cents an hour as
of May 1.
Union Demanded 25-cent an
hour increase and contends such
a boost would be well within the
President's guidelines for nonin
flationary settlements because of
rapid productivity gains.
Railroads Proposed a 20 per
cent pay reduction for 39 groups
of middle and lower range em
ployes, a flat $1.25 hourly rate
for employes serving food or

working days advance notice for
employes whose jobs would be
Unions Asked that the rail
roads be required to give six
months notice to any employe
who was to be '. Jd off or whose
job was to be abolished. The
board rejected this request, call

of rules requiring more than 25
hours advance notice for fur
loughs or job elimination.
Chilling weather
returns to area
Chilling woalher last night re
turned to Central Oregon, to con
found forecasters who predicted
a low for the night of 33 to 38 in
the Bend-Redmond area.
In Redmond last night, the mer
cury dropped to 16 degrees. It
was the coldest reporting spot in
the country. Bend turned in a low
of 21 degrees, recorded at sunrise
this morning.
Even in Salem, west of tlie Cas
cades, the temper aim e dropped
to 31 degrees as skies cleared
following a showery day. On the
Oregon coast, at Newport, tlie low
for the night was 33 degrees.
Forecasts for lows in tlie five
day period set the minimum for
the area at 32 degrees.
Flemming said, noting tlie growth
of the community college concept
in tlie stale.
He presented anticipated Uni
versity enrollment figures, based
on the assumption that commun
ity colleges will relieve the Uni
versity of some of its undergrad
uate load.
He said the University, with a
present eiuuiiment of about 8,850,
anticipates a registration of
around 9,600 next fall and, he
said, tlie total may go over 10,
000. But the University president
hopes to hold the 12 fall enroll
ment to 9,000.
