(By Associated Press)
LANSING, Dec. 14.-There is no
legal bar to the proposal made by
Gov. Fred W. Green that felonies
punishable under the habitual
criminal section of the state crime
code be listed by the legislature,
Wilber M. Brucker, attorney gen-
eral, said today.
Brucker thinks if the fight must
come-And recent developments
indicated it is certainly on the way
-the governor's suggestion might
be the best .method of placing the
legislature definitely on record. On
the other hand, he dislikes to see
the code tampered with.
"I should like to see the code
stand session after session without
amendment," he said. "It would
mean more that way. Criminals
could not then anticipate changes
every time the legislature meets.
"However, there is an immensel
amount of agitation. The Fred
Palm case, the conviction of Mrs.
Etta Mae Miller, a woman, for
four liquor violations and the pros-
pect of a life sentence for her-
these and other incidents indicate
an attempt will be made in the
legislature to exempt liquor of-
fenses from the habitual criminal
provision which makes life sen-
tence mandatory for fourth fel-
onies. If such a change must be
made it perhaps would be better
to list the felonies in the code. By
this method liquor offenses, if they
were omitted from the list, would
still be felonies.
"On the other hand, the code
might be left alone and the change
could be made in the liquor law.
Instead of making violations fel-
onies they could be classified as
circuit court misdemeanors. Un-
der this procedure those found
guilty would be confined in the
county jail. Prisoners may not be
sent to county jail for more than
Gov. Green Thursday said he be-
lieves the legislature in its coming
session should so classify crimesa
that no doubt would be left as to
what disposition that body wants
to make of liquor offenders.
