GOP leaders blast,
educaion panel delays
LANSING (UPI) - House
Republicans, saying the matter is high
on their agenda, chastized Gov. James
Blanchard yesterday for failing to ap-
point the special higher education study
committee he promised nearly a month
"The commission should have been
appointed a long time ago," said
House Republican Leader J. Michael
Busch of Saginaw. "You can do more
than one thing at a time around here."
BUSCH, JOINED by GOP Reps. Ruth
McNamee of Birmingham and Donald
Gilmer of Augusta, said education oc-
cupies a top spot on the Republican
legislative agenda, along with im-
proving the state's business climate.
McNamee was the sponsor of a House
resolution calling for the creation of an
outside body to study the state's higher
educational system. She said there
must be some thought given to con-
solidating programs to avoid costly

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan
administration said yesterday it will
step up distribution of surplus food to
the poor next month - the second move
in as many days to parry charges it is
not doing enough to fight hunger in
Democrats remained unconvinced.
"'I DON'T KNOW where he's been,"
House Speaker Thomas O'Neill Jr. said
yesterday in response to President
Reagan's call a day earlier for a White
House task force to study hunger.
The Massachusetts Democrat said
there is no question poor people are
going hungry, and that it is largely
because "one particular conservative
Republican (Reagan) has led a nation-
wide campaign of ridicule against
America's nutrition programs."
The chairman of the House
Agriculture Committee said if task for-
engineering schools, for example, she
said dilutes their effectiveness.
SHE ALSO SAID it is time for com-
munity colleges to be "completely
coordinated with baccalaureate
A higher education commission, Mc-
Namee contended, "could set down a
philosophy from which the ap-
propriations process works."
Both Busch and McNamee said they
believed it is too early to say whether
any schools should be closed outright.
Blanchard's press secretary, Sue
Carter, said the governor will probably
be making appointments to the com-
mission and setting out its duties
within two weeks.
"It's a very important commission
and it's not something to be rushed into
precipitously," she said.
"Maybe it's important to be a little
more cautious at this end than to make
a mistake and live with it down the
ce members are savvy enough to "see
lightning and hear thunder" they won't
require more than 72 hours - rather,
than the nine days Reagan plans to give
them - to determine that hunger is a
serious problem in America.
THAT REMARK by Rep. Kika de la
Garza, (D-Texas), came at the start of
an Agriculture subcommittee hearing
at which an Agriculture Department of-
ficial outlined plans to boost the amount
of cheese and other food to be given
away in September.
Mary Jaratt, the assistant
agriculture secretary who oversees
food and consumer services, also said
the administration is dropping its op-
position to legislation that would
allocate $50 million to help states and
cities pay the costs of getting the free
food to the people who need it when
existing funds expire Sept. 3.
An ear for music
THE EXPRESSION "in one ear and out the other" may have to be
amended to "out one ear and in the other," after the discovery that ears
not only listen, they can sing. A University of Arizona graduate student,
Kathryn Bright, says tests she conducted confirm a phenomenon some
researchers had noted - the inner ear can emit faint sounds, known as
cochlea emissions. How the sounds are created is not understood, she said.
"Our theory is that there's some kind of damage in the cochlea (inner ear)
that causes the hair cells to go bonkers and fire and create a tone." Bright
noted and recorded ear sounds coming from about half of the 40 subjects
tested. She's now looking for 75 more volunteers willing to have microphones
placed in their ears for an hour.
