18 THE TENNESSEAN, Fridoy, State Hasn't Gone Under Civil Service No announcement has been made by Gov. Ray Blanton to extend civil service status to 22,000 state employes, contrary to reports yesterday afternoon, according to Blan-ton's press secretary. Brooks Parker said yesterday Blanton has made no announcement of such a plan, although the extension of civil service status to 22,000 state employes is being considered by the governor. IT WAS reported yesterday afternoon Blanton would take the action "soon" and by executive order. Blanton's legal adviser Eddie Sisk said the governor has the power to take such action by executive order, but the order is effective only through Blanton's term of office. Permanent action requires passage by the state legislature, Sisk said. Employes who enjoy civil service status receive promotions under the system's merit system and have the right to appeal disciplinary action taken by job superiors. 70 Interest of Bank In Cookeville Bought (Continued From Page One) personnel changes.

Robin Beard said yester day during a campaign bus tour that his Democratic opponent, Ross Bass, has lost contact with the voters. "If Basswantstocallme a reactionary, then fine," Beard, a conservative Republican, said. "But when election time comes, we'll be on top." BEARD also discussed during a radio interview here charges by Bass that Beard pays one of his staff members, William J. Rogers, $20,550 a year for drumming up votes. "The only time I have ever seen Mr. Rogers, he was making a political speech to a group of Memphis senior citizens during the primary " the Hickman County Times quoted Bass as saying. Beard discounted the accusations, explaining that Rogers is his field man in charge of monitoring constituents' views in the 6th District. Rogers, Beard said, holds regular meetings with citizens of Cookeville had assets of $18.9 million, officials said.

Robin Beard and the vetoes of President Ford have not helped cure the economic ills of the country, 6th District nominee Ross Bass said yesterday. Speaking at Columbia radio station WMPC, Bass said a "good, strong working relationship" between the president and the Congress to fight inflation and unemployment. "ROBIN BEARD'S NEGATIVE votes and Ford's vetoes have failed to clear up the mess in Washington and done nothing to ease lems." said Bass. The former senator said he believes presidential nominee Jimmy Carter will carry the 6th District by a large majority. He said Beard's strong ties" to former President Nixon and his support ot t ord s vetoes would not be compatible with Carter's "leadership." "Robin Beard has consistently voted against such measures as education, aid to the elderly, iobs, drug control and lower energy costs," Bass said.
