State senate ups
drinking age to 19.

19 after its effective date-a
step DeSana said would assure
that youths who can legally
drink when the law takes effect
would not have that privilege
taken away.
It would expire in three years,
giving lawmakers the option of
reconsidering their action if it
proves ineffective.
Proposals to raise the drink-
ing age languished last year in
the state House. Goy. William
Milliken has not said whether
he favors the proposal, but aides

advertise and proceed accord-
ing to the consensus opinion.
Attorney Michael Highfield
expressed concern that the law
might confuse or even deceive
consumers.
"MICHIGAN, u n 1 i k e other
states, has no basis for certifi-
cation of a specialty. There are
no tests to take to certify the
lawyer is a specialist (in a given
field)," he said.
Other lawyers, however, wel-
come the law as a boon to con-
sumers.
"It was long overdue," said
Eugene Hanlon. "The public has
a right to know who they are
dealing with."
Hanlon said he believed the
law would reduce confusion for
consumers trying to select law-
yers to suit their needs.
But will the expanded adver-
tising boost lawyers' fees? It
probably will, depending on
how much the individual lawyer
spends to take advantage of
the new freedom, according to
Hanlon. But he added, "If more
clients are absorbed, we might
not need to pass the costs on (to
the consumer)."

said he is troubled over the ap-
parent inconsistency of taking
away some rights held by 18-
year-olds but letting them re-
tain others.
Voting against the measure
was Sen. Alvin DeGrow (R-Pi-
geon), who favored a full return
to the 21-year-old drinking age,
along with Sens. Basil Brown
(D-Highland Park) and David
Plawecki (D-Dearborn Heights).
The Know Nothing Party, the
nickname of the American Par-
ty, was a political group which
wanted to curtain immigration
to the United States and to curb
the influence of the Roman
Catholic Church. During its
peak in the mid-1850s it had 5
senators and 43 representatives
in Congress, and ran former
President Millard Fillmore as
its presidential candidate in
1856.
