WASHINGTON (AP) -The No. 2 official in the Justice Department and the head of the department's criminal division abruptly handed in their resignations today amid continuing legal problems for their boss, Attorney General Edwin Meese III. Deputy Attorney General Arnold Burns and Assistant Attorney General William Weld announced in letters to President Reagan that they were stepping down.

Miami Superior Court Judge Garrett Palmer ruled in a class action suit filed by Logansport attorney Jim Brugh that the county must purchase either a rowing machine or a stationary bicycle for use by prisoners inside the jail.

As part of Palmer's decree, Brugh will receive $8,750 from Cass County for his legal fees. Parent Group Meets In Flora The Concerned Parents Group will meet at 7 p.m. in the Fireside Room in Flora.
