Bernotw ;CONCORD, N. H. (AP) The New Hampshire House; in one of its more restless moods, took more than five hours to act on just 11 bills. One bill which would have lowered the blood al- cohol count that deter- m'uie the drunkenness of drivers arid, in House put it to death Thursday. House In Uproar Before killing it, the House went Into an uproar when near- ly a doww used as objects to .demonstrate the amoiBit, that people of varying weights can drink. 1 With martini .glasses in hand, and ginger ale and olives in legislators posed in front of the House to point.up the fact that different people get drunk.at different rates. The mood of the House be- came so jovial that one mem- ber insisted on a quorum to quiet it down. Btaally, no more WIs facing it, the. lawmakers agrwid to put off .the rest of the, agenda until next Tuesday. The House passed bills creat- ing district courts In Meredith and New London and an 1 amended measure setting up a district court in Scabrook. And the Hpuse agreed with its Education Committee in killing a bill dealing with the vocation- al-technical institute system. In the Senate, action was de- layed oh 'the House-passed bill regarding Franconia College's power to grant degrees. The measure was rescheduled'for March 5.'." The bill'gives the controver- sial college the' authority to grant degrees through June, 1971. But the state Coordinating Board of Advanced Education and Accreditation would: hive power to modify or repeal this then -if- the board discovers that the college isn't meeting acceptable stand- ards. .The .bill also requires the board to give the legislature a 'rtport on the college's'.progress and to recommend action to be taken at the 1071 session on the degree-granting power. Meafimme, Senate passed a series of minor measures that had drawn the approval, of the Executive Departments Com- mittee and one housekeeping bill that had the blessing of the Public Works Committee; A measure oji the member- ship of the Interstate Coopera- tion Commission was withdrawn from the calendar. move that may have far-reaching effects on New Hampshire law-enforcement, Sen. James Koromilas, R-Dov- er, introduced a bill that would, among other things, limit to judges the power to issue search warrants.; The'change is in keeping with a U.S. Supreme CbUrt decision ir. .which it was stated that 'the issuing of a search warrant is a judicial-act. While, justices al. the': peace have certain powers in this area Mood tt is considered'mart ii tht realm of court judges If the proposed bill paMfs, March warrants .would bt signed only by municipal, dis- trict or superior court judges.
