Ford Sees Vote Unable To Halt Oil Import Costs Interreligious Consultations, a conference in Bloomington to confront the crisis in public morality, has established a formal organization. The president, appropriately enough, is the Rev. Duane SINN (Terre There evidently are more Democrat judges in the state than there are Democrat county auditors. Because of difficulty in Carroll County last year in filling a vacancy on the county council when the. remaining six coun- cilmen were evenly divided politically, State Rep. Nelson Becker introduced a bill this year to have the county auditor cast the deciding vote in such cirumstances, just as the law already provides a tie is broken in filling a vacancy on the county board of commissioners. However, the Democrat majority in the House committee to which the bill was assigned changed it to read that the judge would cast the deciding vote rather than the auditor, who nor- mally meets with the council and is more familiar with its business. The change wouldn't make any difference in Carroll County because both the auditor and the judge are Republicans. Representative Becker was one of the SO House members who voted for the bill requiring that at least half of the toilets in any- public establishment be free. There was somelevity during the debate on that bill. One of its backers was Rep. Marilyn Schultz. Bloomington teacher, who recently filed a sex discrimination charge against the Columbia club because it wouldn't serve her in its men-only dining room, When she complained about another public establishment having 15 pay toilets and only one free toilet, one of the other representatives said she should have gone to the Columbia club. Representatives of Henry County Memorial hospital (New Castle) have just signed a contract to provide 20 beds for in- patient services and also certain out-patient services for Comprehensive Mental Health Services nf East Central, In- diana, Inc. The services are part of those to be offered to Henry, Jay, and Delaware County residents as part of a comprehensive mental health center. The same size facility is being sought here at Memorial hospital for Cass, Fulton, Miami, and Pulaski Counties. Tax Information Sought To Aid Tornado Victims 143 a year ago.
