STARTS F RIDAY!
The FIRST Certified
to bill for
new Ed dept.
(ontiued I'om Pase -
own version of the bill and House
clearance is likely to be the last major
obstacle to passage.
The nucleus of the department would
be the eductional programs moved
from the Department of Health
Education, and Welfare. The new
department would have jurisdiction
over at least 160 existing programs,
would employ more than 24,000 staff
members and have an annual budget of
about $14 million, making it larger than
five existing departments: Energy,
Interior, Commerce, Justice and State.
ALTHOUGH THE HOUSE leadership
had hoped to complete action on the bill
yesterday, Republican opponents of the
measure slowed the proceedings by
demanding quorum calls to compel at-
tendance in the House and roll call
votes, even on non-controversial amen-
Earlier, the House adopted amen-
dments to permit voluntary school
prayer and prohibit the department
from withholding federal funds from a
district which refuses to use busing as a
tool for achieving desegregation.
These amendemtns, coupled with
Walker's proposal on quotas, prompted

Burnham said the district attorney
denied a political motive in Got-
thainer's indictment. O'Rourke refused
to say if further indictments would be

County "were straight out of T.V."
"SUFFOLK COUNTY is on a witch
hunt and will continue to be on a witch
hunt," he continued.
"Personal gain to Mike ... was not a
factor in this," emphasized Burnham.
And personal gain was not alleged by
the district attorney, he said.
"I have confidence that the courts are
still providing justice in this country,"
stated Gotthainer, who said he plans to
cooperate fully with the legal process.
He apologized to the citizens of
Washtenaw County and expressed his
appreciation for the support of the
Washtenaw County Board of Com-
THE COMMISSIONERS voted to
support Gotthainer's attempts to prove
his innocence in an informal 12 to 3 vote
in a special session Monday.
Gotthainer said he hoped the com-
missioners would maintain their at-
titude that he is "innocent until proven
guilty." He asked the board to refrain
from further action in the issue to keep
publicity to a minimum.
Burnham concluded, "Mike would
like to get back to his job ... It's budget
tile in'Washt'enaw County."

And this was only the beginning.
