"I don't believe it's lobby reform or
political reform. This Senate doesn't
have the guts to clean up the system. It

Corbin said he knewthe bill would be
passed easily but said he expected close
votes on all of the amendments. He said
the amendment concerning the
seminars and conferences was very
significant. "That was a very positive
sign. It was a crucial vote," he said..
A MILD controversy developed when
Sen. John Hertel (D-Harper Woods) in-
troduced a motion to prevent
lawmakers from becoming lobbyists
until two years after retirement from
the legislature. Hertel said that
proposal should not take effect until af-
ter the 1980-82 session so that declared
candidates for the legislature will know
"what they're getting into."
But Sen. Alvin DeGrow (R-Pigeon)
argued that legislators should be sub-
jected to the law before 1982. DeGrow's
motion was quickly defeated.
Sen. Richard Allen (R-Lansing), who
occasionally criticized the bill's
inability to provide strict measures to
control lobbyists, said the bill con-
stitutes a "step forward" in regulating

The bill was reported out of the
Senate Judiciary Committee in early
May after bitter struggles among
committee members. The bill was only
submitted by the committee after
several compromises were made which
weakened the severity of the bill. But
yesterday, many legislators, including
Corbin, agreed the final legislation
would serve as a strong measure to
restrict lobbyists. It is expected that
Governor Milliken will sign the bill into
law if it is passed by the House.

Phalagists attacked the town of Ehden,
a Franjieh mountain stronghold 70
miles north of Beirut capital, and
shelled the home of Tony Franjieh, the
ex-president's son. A spokesman here
said the son, 36, his Egyptian wife,
Vera, 28, and their two-year-old
daughter, Jehan, were killed, along
with a maid and chauffeur. The shelling
