LANSING (UPI) - Backers of a
proposal lowering the state's drinking
age to 19 won legislative help yesterday
in getting the issue on the fall ballot.
The House Constitutional Revision
and Women's Rights Committee ap-
proved a resolution placing the issue
before the voters. The measure was
sent to the full House on a 5-1-1 vote
during a hastily called meeting.
THE STATE'S drinking age was
raised from 18 to 21 in 1978.
Rep. Richard Fitzpatrick (D-Battle
Creek), who heads a petition drive to
place the drinking age issue on the
ballot, said the resolution was .'in-
surance" in case the signature cam-
Although Fitzpatrick's group,
Citizens for a Fair Drinking Age, said
last week it has collected 200,000 of the
required 288,000 signatures, the
lawmaker said opponents plan to
examine the names carefully.
"THE STRATEGY of those who are
against us is picking at those
signatures," Fitzpatrick said.
He said many student voters - the
group's main source of support - have
been careless in filling out their
hometowns on the petitions.
"You'd be surprised at how many
people write 'D-e-t' for Detroit or 'A-2'
for Ann Arbor," he said.
SHOULD THE group fail to collect
enough signatures by the July 7
deadline, it will have another two mon-
ths to get the plan on the ballot through
legislative action. A two-thirds vote of
both houses would be needed.
Although committee debate
generally was favorable toward the
resolution, the director of the state Of-
fice of Substance Abuse Services soun-
ded a note of caution.
"This issue is not a calm one - it
very likely will be controversial," said
"It's easy to draw one conclusion
from a civil rights point of view and
another from an alcohol point of view,"
Although backing the measure,
Eaton urged the panel to make sure it
would be enforced.

Moon over Bristol, Tennessee
A patrolman fired for dropping his trousers and "mooning" a police
training class last February will be rehired July 1, Bristol, Tenn. officials
said yesterday. City Manager Rick Henderlight said Jerry Rotenberry, the
suspended patrolman, wrote letters of apology to the citizens of the
community, the City Council, and the police department. He will be placed
on a 90-day suspension and six months probation after he is rehired, the city
manager said. Rotenberry was fired for exhibiting his buttocks to a police
training class at Blountville after a female officer poured a drink on him.
The woman was suspended but not fired, officials said. The real question is,
What was the woman doing with a drink ina police training class? 1
