Sullivan May
Quit Cabinet
' Washington. April 25
John L. Sulllvan'i decision wha
ihcr to resign secretary of the
navy appeared today to rest with
President Truman.
' Sullivan's Intlmatci Indicated
he would seek a heart-to-heart
ilalk with the chief executive on
jhc navy's future role in defense
strategy as the aftermath of
.work stoppage on the 65.000-
ton super aircraft carrier "Unit
ltd States."
Sullivan himself said only
that he had no comment on the
decision pending study of Sec
retary of Defense Johnson's or
Tier Saturday discontinuing work
on the $189,000,000 vessel.
! lie is known to hold grave
doubts whether he can stay on
'at his post in view of his dif
ferences with Johnson and se
curity policies.
Top White House aides ex
pressed the view that the knock
ing out of the carrier wa "the
Satraw that broke the camel's
iback" so far as Sullivan is con
cerned. ' He had already been reported
lo have felt aggrieved by what
ie considered lack of consulta
tion with him in the drafting of
amendments to the armed ser
vices unification act.
At the same time, his friends
say that he still feels loval lo
president Truman and doesn't
,want to leave government ser
vice unless his position in the
navy is too untenable to per
mit him to stay on. He came into
the government in 1939 when
'Britain and France declared
Svar on Germany.

! Seven of eleven boys in the
17-18 year old group are still

nabbed by city police at Hood
River and are said to have been
traveling in a stolen automobile.
Police named them as Gilbert

The boys were not confined

Woodburn School District
Sets Hearing Upon Budget
! Woodburn The public hearing on the proposed $202 900
Woodburn school budget for 1949-50 will be held Wednesday night
at 8 o'clock In the Lincoln school building. On the following
day, April 28, registered voters of the district will vote from
'2 to 7 o'clock on authorization of a tax in excess of the six per cent
: Items in the 1949-50 budge!
may be discussed In detail with
the board and budget committee
at the public hearing Wednes
day evening. However, since the
Woodburn district is now a first
class district, no vote will be
taken on the adoption of the
budget, nor can any items be
added to. eliminated from or
changed in the budget. The
school board of a district of the
first class has the power lo levy
a tax once each year upon ail
ireal and personal property in
such district for the mainte
nance, operation and support of
the public schools of the area.
. The budget as submitted will
require a tax levy totaling
$129,450. Of this amount $21,
496 65 falls within the six per
tent limitation, but $107,953 of
the proposed levy is outside the
legal limit and must be author
bed by a vote of the district
.residents which will be held
from 2 to 7 o'clock, Thursday
night, at the Lincoln school.
Since the property qualifica
tion from voters in school elec
tions was removed by the con-
stitutional amendment approved
. by the people last fall, many
more residents of the Woodburn
school district will b eligible
to vote on the question of ex.
,1-ceding the six per cent limits.

Truman Health
Bill in Congress
Washington, April 25 U.R
Administration democrats intro
duced legislation in the senate
and house today to carry out
President Truman's $6,000,000,
000 national health insurance
The bill, sponsored By eight
senators and two house mem
bers, called for a compulsory
prepaid Insurance plan to pro
vide medical, surgical, dental
and hospital care for 85 percent;
of the American people.
It would be financed by an
additional three percent payroll
tax, split between employers and
employes, comparable taxes on
the self-employed, and a Sl.-l
500,000.000 annual appropriation
from the treasury.
The payroll tax would be on
the first $4800 of annual income.
The bill followed precisely the
line laid down last week by
President Truman and other ad
ministration spokesmen.
Its sponsors said in an accom
panying statement that payment
for medical service should be "In
proportion to Income" and that
the American people should get
health care "as a right and not
as charity."
The administration bill, which
is given only a very slim chance
of getting through congress,
would provide, in addition to
health Insurance, federal grants
to states for hospital construc
tion, medical education, local
health service, and maternal and
child health care.
