Legislature

fails

IN BRIEF

to ban abortions

LANSING (UPI) - The state
legislature failed yesterday in its bid to
ban welfare abortions over Gov.
William Milliken's veto.
Although the attempted override suc-
ceeded in the Senate on the second try,
it fell nine votes short of the two-thirds
majority needed in the House.
MILLIKEN LAST week vetoed for
the eighth time since 1978 legislation
barring state funding of abortions for
poor women. The governor said poor
women should not be denied the
procedures solely because they cannot
afford them.
- Michigan, one of the few states which
funds abortions, spends about $4 million
of its $1.6 billion welfare budget for an
estimated 14,000 Medicaid abortions.
A successful override in the House
would have marked only the second
time in three decades the legislature
has overturned a Michigan governor's
veto.
ANTI-ABORTION forces blamed the
absence of three representatives who
would have voted with them plus last-
minute decisions by six others for the
defeat. Another override try is expec-
ted later in the week.
Four Republicans who originally
voted for the abortion ban - Rep.
William Bryant (R-Grosse Pointe),
Rep. William Jowett (R-Port Huron),
Rep. Jack Kirksey (R-Livonia), and
Rep. Sylvia Skrel (R-Livonia) voted
with the Republican governor and

against an override.
The Senate twice attempted to over-
turn Milliken's veto of the bill banning
Medicaid abortions except in cases
where the prospective mother's life is
in danger.
ON THE second attempt, senators
voted 26-12 to defy the governor - exac-
tly the two-thirds vote needed. An
initial try fell short when Sen. Bill Huf-
fman (D-Madison Heights), failed to
vote.
Senators were shocked when Huf-
fman failed to vote on the first veto
override attempt. Following closed-
door meetings with legislative leaders,
the suburban Detroit legislator sided
with anti-abortion lawmakers.
Huffman denied he had been per-
suaded by Senate leaders or promised
favors to vote in favor of the override.
THE SENATE vote came as chan-
ting, sign-waving members of Right-to-
Life of Michigan rallied at the Capitol in
an attempt to boost House support for
the veto override.
Jane Muldoon, president of the group,
said she was "delighted" with the
Senate vote.
"It was a tremendous thing we were
asking them to do, especially the
Republicans. I know it (the vote) is no
disrespect to the governor."
Ironically, Muldoon said before the
House vote that she preferred a delay in
the House to insure the necessary votes
were available.

Job outlook good for
graduates, study says

EAST LANSING (UPI)-A college
degree does not mean what it used to
' i i but it's still a pretty effective antidote
" o Peace Without Development" to recession, according to Michigan
State University's annual nationwide
FREE PUBLIC LECTURE job survey released yesterday.
Rackham Audiorium,3:30 Sunday, Dec. 14 MSU Placement Director Jack
Shingleton, who surveyed 562 public
and private sector employers, said the
so Workshop/Discussion with Clergy and inter- job market for this year's graduating
class will be largely unchanged despite
ted Laypeople on Saturday, Dec. 13,3:00-5:00 at theeconomicdownturn.
rst Presbyterian Church, 1432 Washtenaw. About 90 percent of the seniors will
have jobs waiting for them when they
(REGISTRATION R EQ UESTEDgraduate and the remaining 10 percent
R OUNCIREQUESTED, will find work within three or four mon-
INTERFAITH COUNCIL 6631870) ths, although perhaps not exactly what
they were looking for, he said.
ENGINEERS, AND others with

technical training continue to be most
in demand and claim the highest star-
ting salaries, the survey showed, while
those graduating with social science,
liberal arts, and, education degrees
have to wait for jobs and accept lower
salaries when they get them.
Shingleton said starting salaries will
average just over $15,000-an increase
of about 6 percent from those offered
last spring. They range from a low of,
$12,970 for social science grads to
$20,650 for chemical engineers.
About the same number of jobs will
be available as last year, but since they
will be visiting morecampuses
recruiters are likely to be a bit more
selective, Singleton said.
Also, there are a few more graduates
this year, he noted.
THE IMPACT of the recession has
been "minimal as far as college
graduates are concerned," Shingleton
said of his 10th annual survey.
The market "will be about the same
as last year, and last year was really
not a bad year," he said.
With the tightening of the job market
for those in liberal arts, he said, in-
creasing emphasis is being placed on
teaching students how to find jobs and
making sure they get practical ex-
perience in college.
WHILE HOLDING a degree "still
makes a difference as far as em-
ployment is concerned," it is "not as
valuable a credential to have as it once
was," Shingleton said.

Supreme Court rules gov't
can seek tougher sentences
WASHINGTON-By a one-vote margin, the Supreme Court ruled yester-
day the government may seek a tougher sentence for a criminal it feels got
off too easily, without violating the Constitution's guarantee against double
jeopardy.
The 5-4 ruling said the government's power under a federal statute to ask
for review of a sentence it considers too lenient does not infringe on, the
protection against multiple trials or multiple punishment.
The government has asked the high court to overturn an appeals court
dismissal of the request for review of a man's federal racketeering sentence.
The decision may bolster attempts to give the government broader powers
to appeal light sentences for all criminal offenses-a contested provision in
the revised U.S. Criminal Code pending before Congress.
Senate votes to let
fililbuster continue
WASHINGTON-The Senate refused yesterday to break a conservative
Republican-led filibuster against "fair housing" backed by
Democratic liberals.
Immediately after the Senate voted not to choke off the debate, Senate
Majority Leader Robert Byrd fulfilled his pledge to withdraw the measure
from Senate consideration, which doomed the bill for the current session of
Congress.
The bill was designed to improve enforcement of a 1968 civil rights law
that banned discrimination in housing.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) the floor sponsor of the bill said the out-
come represented "A major retreat by the Republican Party in its commit-
ment to civil rights."
Senate Republican leader Howard Baker, who takes over as majority
leader when the GOP-Senate convenes next year, pledged he would try to
"move a fair housing bill early in the next session. And a good bill, not just a
bill in name only."
FBI set up Abscam defendent
Kelly, attorney says
WASHINGTON-Rep. Richard Kelly took $25,000 from undercover agents,
not to sell his services, but as part of his own investigation of suspicious
characters with whom he was dealing, his lawyer said yesterday.
In a statement at the start of the Florida Republican's Abscam trial,
defense lawyer Anthony Battaglia said the congressman is innocent of any
wrongdoing.
Kelly, he said, was set up and targeted by undercover FBI agents posing
as representatives of fictitious Arab sheiks willing to pay bribes to
politicians in exchange for special favors.
Kelly and two co-defendents, Eugene Ciuzio of Longwood, Fla., and
Stanley Weisz of Smithtown, N.Y., are on trial for bribery, conspiracy and
racketeering charges arising from the FBI's Abscam investigation.
The indictment said the three agreed to accept a total of $250,000 in return
for Kelly's promise to introduce private immigration bills for fictitious
Arabs.
Interest rates keep rising
NEW 'VORK-Interest rates continued to climb toward record levels
yesterday, and the surge is not over, Henry Kaufman, da leading Wall Street
economist, predicted.
A small New York bank raised its prime lending rate to 19.75 percent from
19 percent, closing in on the record 20 percent rate of last spring. No major
banks matched the increase.
The latest leap in the lending rate for the most creditworthy corporate
customers came from UMB Bank and Trust Co., a U.S. subdidiary of United'
Mizrahi Bank of Israel, which has often moved in advance of major banks.
Kaufman said inflation is likely to average 10 percent at an annual rate,
perhaps rising toward 11 percent by the end of 1981.
Soviet troops still needed in
Afghanistan, Brezhnev says
NEW DELHI-Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev told Indian Prime
Minister Indira Gandhi yesterday that Moscow has noted "a certain nor-
malization" in Afghanistan, according to Brezhnev's spokesman. But the
justification for keeping Soviet troops there is stronger than ever because of
alleged American escalation of tension, the spokesman said.
Brezhnev and Gandhi met for two hours yesterday, the second day of
Brezhnev's state visit to India. India's traditionally good relations with
Moscow have been strained recently by Soviet military presence in nearby
Afghanistan.
The United States has denied providing any substantial aid to anti-com-
munist Moslem guerrillas fighting Afghan government forces and the
estimated 85,000 Soviet soldiers in Afghanistan.
Soviet spokesman Leonid Zamyatin said, "We are not planning to in-
troduce any new troops into Afghanistan-if reason prevails among those
organizing intervention and they decide to seek a political settlement."
