Senate votes to extend life
of LEAA for five years

WASHINGTON (AP) - The
Senate voted 87 to 2 yesterday
for a S-year extension of the
Law Enforcement Assistance
Administration (LEAA) first set
ap in 1968 to help state and
local governments fight crime.
With crime rates continuing
to climb, the LEAA has come.
under criticism as wasteful and
largely ineffective. But support-
ers of the agency argue that
without it, the crime situation
would be worse.
THE BILL PASSED by the
Senate would require a great-
er proportion of LEAA funds
to be devoted to preventing
juvenile delinquency and re-
habilitation of youthful offend-
ers.
Sen. Birch Bayh (D-Ind.),
who sponsored this amendment,
said that about half of all seri-
ous crimes are committed by
teen-agers.
The bill now goes to the House,
where the Judiciary Committee
has recommended only a 1S-
month extension of LEAA so
that its operations would be
subject to closer congressional
scrutiny.
THE SENATE measure au-
thorizes appropriations of $1 bil-
lion for the current fiscal year
and $1.1 billion for each of the
next four years.
Htowever, an appropriation
bill already passed by Congress
and signed into law by Presi-
dent Ford provides only $678
million for t.EAA this year. It
was made contingent on pass-
age of the authorization bill.
The measure passed by the
Senate yesterday is designed
generally to give increased at-
tention to improvement of the
courts, as well as to teen-age
crime, and to require closer
evaluation by the LEAA of all
state anti-crime programs.

DURING THE Senate debate
Sen. Roman Hruska (R-Neb.),
emphasized that LEAA ac-
counts for only about 5 per
cent of all expenditures on law
enforcement.
He said its purpose was to en-
courage improvement of the en-
tire criminal justice system but
primary responsibility for law
enforcement rests with state
and local governments.
The Senate adopted a pro-
vision, offered by Sen. Robert
Byrd (D-W.Va.), limiting the di-
rector of the FBI to a single
10-year term.
BYRD SAID a single, 10-year
term would help to insulate an
FBI director against political
interference and also minimize
the danger of a director with
unlimited tenure assuming auto-
cratic powers.

The amendment would apply
to Clarence Kelley, the present
FBI director.
Also added to the bill was an
amendment by Sen. Robert
Morgan, (D-N.C.), authorizing
$10 million a year in federal
grants to the states for each
of the next three years to help
them establish more effective
antitrust enforcement programs.
The grants would be admin-
istered by the attorney general,
rather than the LEAA. Morgan
said price-fixers and other anti-
trust violators rob people just
like "a thug with a gun."
The C-7 nonrigid Navy diri-
gible was the first to use non-
inflammable helium as lifting
gas Dec. 1, 1921, in a flight
from Hampton Roads, Va. to
Washington, D.C.
