Highway repair
WASHINGTON - Ameriia's
federal highways are wearing
out faster than they are being
repaired, in part because fed-
eral overseers have not enforc-
ed rules which require states to

own leadership.
The governor's intense inter-
est in getting McLaughlin re-
elected, and the fact that he
literally made it a contest be-
tween himself and Edwards,
pointed to the fact that he is
looking at his image and his
party's structure for 1978.
The governor, however, niain-
tamed that he has not yet de-
cided whether to run again.
"I didn'tmean one way or
the other to tip my hand," he
told reporters.
Milliken said he was pleas-
ed with the outcome of the con-
test, even though the closeness
of the final tally was viewed as
an embarrassment to him.
