LANSING - Rep. William A.
Ryan of Detroit was elected leader
by Democratic members of the
State House of Representatives
Ryan. 48, is currently serving
his sixth two-year term. He suc-
ceeds Rep. Joseph Kowalski of
Detroit who died March 18 after
suffering a stroke.
Ryan reportedly was elected on
the fourth secret ballot during a
closed-door caucus. One member
said he had 24 votes on the firsta
ballot, four short of the needed
majority. The final vote pitted
Ryan against Rep. Albert Horri-
gan of Flint.
Declared candidates J. Robert
Traxler of Bay City. Daniel Coo-
per of Oak Park and Arthur Law
of Pontiac were eliminated as low
men in the first three ballots.
Ryan is currently chairman of
the House Democratic Caucus and
the House Democratic contin-
gent's Personnel Officer. He is a
member of the Ways and Means
Committee and the Higher Edu-
cation Appropriations Subcom-
Kowalski, last year's speaker,!
withdrew this year after it became
apparent that he lacked enough
support within his own party to
be certain of getting all its 55
Ryan ran for the speakership
of the deadlocked House, but lost
to Republican Robert Waldron of
Grosse Pointe when Democrat E.
D. O'Brien refused to vote for him,
giving the Republicans the needed
one vote majority.
Ryan does not smoke, seldom
drinks, and has the reputation cu
being one of the hardest working
members of the House Neccm-
ers to Lansing, who note his quiet,
methodical manner, are some-
times surprised to learn he is a
Marine Corps veteran and Was
twice president of United Auto
Workers Local 104.
He does not like to be called a
liberal. He is, he says, "one who
seeks to attain the proper balance
between the amount of govern-
ment we should have to achieve
public purposes and the necessary
arrangements to preserve the
rights of the individual."
Ryan is, however, usually re-
garded as a liberal and a supporter
of welfare measures. He is known
as a careful thinker and one who
would rather reach an acceptable
compromise than reap political
gains from a stalemate.
Ryan's typical day begins with
6 a.m. Mass, followed by a day's
work at the Capitol. Other legis-
lators say a typewriter can often
be heard clacking in his room un-
til late at night.
Ryan wa sappointed to the Leg-
islature in 1958 when Ed Carey
was elected to the Detroit Com-
mon Council. He held the seat in
the 1958 election and has kept
House Speaker Waldron said
the selection of Ryan "is very ac-
ceptable to me." He added, "I
think Bill Ryan is an outstanding
public servant. He is thorough
and fair in his dealings. I look
forward to working with him."

appointment of its 1967-68
