The animals are a male and female buffalo which Rediess, who owns the Reznik Packing plant, plans lo use for breeding. Rediess says he doesn't plan to turn his new guests into hamburger urrrrr buffaloburger. but pur- chased them as a novelty. "We had a pair 10 to 12 years ago and they turned into quite a tourist said Rediess. (Tom Renner photo) LANSING, Mich. It appears that Michigan 18- year-olds will have to wait until New Year's Day for their first legal drink since a bill (hat would allow them to imbibe earlier is botlled up in a Senate subcommittee. "It's a matter of when we gel the work says Sen. Donald K. Bishop, R-Rochester, chairman of the Senate Judiciary sub-commitlce studying the bill. Observers had thought the measure, one a 52-bill package pertaining lo rights of 18-year-olds as adults under the "Age of Majority" Aci, would be approved in lime for Christmas drinking. However, Bishop and Sen. Robert Richardson, R- Saginaw, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said that is almost out of the. question. Meanwhile a proposal (n imloek taverns and liquor stores to allow drinking or sale of alcohol during poiling hours won approval the Michigan House Tuesday. That measure, passed fiS-IiS, went to the Senate along with a rewritten Senate bill proposing tough standards for arresting suspected game poachers found with weapons and lorches during hours of darkness. Bishop said he is asking for advice from the attorney general about whether Ihe "Age of Majority" Act by "reference" makes all 18-year-olds bonifide adults at a.m. Jan. 1 or if each law now on the books pertaining lo adulls only must be changed. Bishop said his sub-committee also has questions about the language of certain "Age of Majority" bills dealing wilh probate mailers. The "Age of Majority" Act is effective New Year's Day and Bishop said he believes "it is not good legislation to set a dale for the whole act and then change il lalcr." The election-day drinking measure, sponsored by Reps. Hal Ziegler, K-Jackson, and J. Bob Traxler, D-Bay City, would repeal a section of law requiring liquor-dispensing establishments to close during voting hours. Passage came virtually without comment, allhough one lawmaker laughingly told newsmen in (lie House chamber Ihe measure was "a reporter's bill." "This'H give you guys something to do on election day wailing for the returns lo come the legislator said. A much disputed bill revising stale game lasvs went back to the Senate after the House deleted an amendment lhat would have allowed deer hunting by bow and arrow from trees. The practice is allowed in virtually every other state where deer arc hunlcd. The mnjor provision was a now sod ion declaring possession of a weapon- rifle or bow -and ;m artificial light or torch automatic grounds for arresl on poaching charges at niglil. Kxceptions would be lights used in raccoon luinls or for properly authorized game census counts. Opponents lo hunling with bow and arrow from trees said firearms hunlcrs would demand (he same privilege imii that granting it would lead (o more wounded deer because of the smaller target from the high angle of fire. 'Budget Busters'Trimmed Conferees Chop Up Tax Bill By KD1MOND I.cHHKTON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (API House and Senate conferees have chopped from Ihe lax bill billion worth of tax-relief amendments lhat caused a presidential veto threat, but the conferees apparently are at odds over a provision lo finance presidential cam- paigns with federal income taxes. Trimmed from the bill Tuesday were what President Nixoncalled "budgel-busting amendments" including ones providing for increases in personal income lax deduc- tions and lax-credits for ghetto businesses and for parenls who pick up (he labs for Iheir childrens' college education. These, plus the campaign- financing plan, caused the White House lo announce Mon- day that Nixon would reject the legislation if it reached him with them in il. The only major item that remains to be agreed on by the conferees, who resume meetings today, is a contro- versial plan allowing individu- als to earmark of their income tax for presidential campaigns. Farm Wives Take Cause To Milliken LANSING. Mich. About 80 Michigan farm wives swept through (he State Capitol Tuesday distributing Michigan- grown apples and pleading for help to save the family farm as a way of life. Led by Mrs. Connie Canfield of Keeler, president of (lie Women for Hie Survival of Ag- ricullure in Michigan, a women conferred wilh Gov. William Milliken for half an hour. Milliken received a bushel of apples, said lie was sym- pathetic ID ilmir cause and of- fered moral support.

One recommendation asked for an immediate investigation by both stale and federal government into the buying practices of processors and fresh fruit brokers. The women claim there is reason lo believe dial "price fixing" has taken place among handlers of fruits and vegetables. Milliken, who has created a land use commission lo study ways of lies! utilizing Mich- naluval resources, noted Ilia I "one of the disturbing things" is thai "some acres have moved from ngri- cultural (and lo oilier pur- poses." llergliot Xoll.ir, wife of .Son.
