Teacher vote is up for grabs by by Ramsey associated press writer Frankfort by. A the National education associations sanctions hearings in Kentucky Are Over but the political implications linger. One of the notable non happenings in the near a week Long investigation was the refusal of both Republican gov. Louie b. Nunn and democratic it. Gov. Wendell Ford to testify publicly or otherwise. Both sent letters to the hearing examiner instead. On the other hand former gov. Bert Combs Fords rival for the 1971 democratic gubernatorial nomination commented in passing that he did not understand Why Nunn and Ford would not participate. His running mate rep. Julian Carrolld Paducah did testify. After All Combs said sanctions against a state Labelling it As unfit for industries or professional educators could be a serious matter and Kentucky a leaders should try to head it off. While the Nea takes months to make up its mind about sanctions the Issue has fallen squarely into the states gubernatorial Arena.

To the 32,000 must be added others in their families perhaps close friends and possibly pupils old enough to vote next november.
