CLAIRSVILLtf, Ohio (UPI) — Kathy Crumbley, who will be sworn in next week *as sheriff of Belmont County, promises her deputies will conduct more thorough in• vestigations — and look neater 'too. The 6-foot, 270-pound Mrs. .Crumbley, who defeated a , male opponent to become one ~ n of the few female sheriff's in "the country, said she will .initiate dress inspection for r the department. "My men will meet the standard dress and uniform code in Ohio," she said in an interiview. "In the past they slid away from this somewhat. My men will stand inspection." In preparation for taking over the sheriff's duties, Mrs. - Crumbley has traveled ... throughout the state visiting ;, various "successful" sheriff's departments and getting her own department organized.

(UPI) — The Legal Aid Society Wednesday filed suit against the Department of. Social and Rehabilitation Services, seeking to restore welfare benefits to 5,600 families who have been told benefits will end Jan. 1. SRS Secretary Dr. Robert Harder recently announced the benefits will be eliminated as part of a $26 million reduction in the department's requested budget. Harder said the action would save the state $16.5 million during fhe next fiscal year. The funding initially was recommended for elimination by state budget director James Bibb, who reduced the SRS budget request from $208.8 million to $132.2 million. Harder told a budget hearing before Gov. Robert Bennett .that he would not appeal $26 million of the cut included in the medical benefits category. The category to be eliminated includes persons who qualify to receive medical benefits, but are not eligible for general welfare assistance. The suit, filed by Legal Aid's Topeka office, said eliminating the payment was improper because it constituted a change in.welfare regulations and therefore required legal notice of the change and approval by the attorney general. The agency also contended the change leaves the state without an approved state welfare plan. Shawnee County Distarict Judge Michael Barbara set a hearing Dec. 31, the day before the cutoff date, to hear a motion for a restraining order to prevent the state from cutting off payments until the suit can be fully heard. The suit was filed on behalf of six famHes receiving the benefits. Named as plaintiffs were Adam Wilson and Joseph Adriano of Kansas City, Kan., Kenyon Schutz, Virgina Worley and Inez Stewart of Wichita, and Gilbert Carter of Topeg. forcement staff, Mrs. Crumbley said she intends to introduce specialization to the department. •She also plans the initiation of a detective division, with one deputy immediately being assigned t to full-time investigating duties and hope of expanding to three men within a year. "I will be able to hand the prosecutor more solid information," she said. The sheriff-elect also is waiting for her deputies do decide what union to join. "It's up to the men to decide what union they want. I'm going to let them feel out every union possible." During the election cam- paign, Mrs. Crumbley, was endorsed by the political arm of District 6 of the United Mine Workers Union, a powerful force in this area. She claims the rank-and-file UMW membership continues to support her,, but added "UMW officials are against me and my husband." Mrs. Crumbley's husband, James "Brutus" Crumbley, was defeated for office in the UMW District 6 elections held recently. Does Mrs. CrUmbley have future political aspirations? "I ran for sheriff of Belmont County," she sajd. "I have won and that's my goal. I hope to remain the sheriff of Belmont County." Singer Isaac Hayes Hies Bankruptcy MEMPHIS,.Tenn. (UPI) Soul singer Isaac Hayes and his wife, Mignon, Wednesday filed for personal bankruptcy in federal court and attorneys for the singer said his debts may run as high as $6 million. Hayes currently is recording in Los Angeles, but his attorney said, "He's still recording but he's no longer in business for himself." The largest of the Hayes' debts is to a Memphis bank for $1.76 million in money loaned, plus interest. Attorney Gary Plotkin said tax liens by the Internal Revenue Service amounting to $463,969 are the precipitating factor in the bankruptcy action. An 85-mile slick, resembling masses of 20-foot black pancakes, was blown south-southeast Thursday "in a roller- coaster fashion," the Coast Guard said, and could miss the main fishing area of the bank. Some of the pollution has already reached its edge. Rear Adm. William Benkert, chief of the Office of Merchant Marine Safety, said Wednesday the Coast Guard received a telephone call from a man who identified himself as either "M. Labir" or "M. Sabir," a Pakistani national, and said he was a crewman on the tanker. "He stated that the vessel was old and leaking and may AA ay your holidays be a model of good fortune and happiness.

Sabtr of Pakistan was a member of the crew and was taken to Nantucket from the stricken ship. The 23-year-old ship, with a record of numerous maritime mishaps, was 10 miles off course when it went around on Nantucket Shoals, about 27 miles from Nantucket Island, last Wednesday. "We don't have the authority or responsibility to „ investigate this because it happened in international waters," Benkert said. "It is not in our jurisdiction." If the Liberian government requests an Investigation, he said, the Coast Guard could step in. The Boston Globe said Thursday it was told by Capt. Alister Crombtc, deputy commissioner of Marine Safety for the Liborlan government, a fivcman board will convene in February to investigate the grounding of the tanker. The ship supposedly is operated by the Thebes Shipping Co. of Monrovia, Liberia, with agents in Boston identified in n suit filed in U.S. District Court as A.C. Lombard & Sons. Another suit filed with the courl identified the owner as Amership Agency of New York City. Neither the Boston nor New York firms co>i!d be reached for comment. President Ford, "deeply concerned" about the spill, Wednesday ordered federal agencies "to do all that is possible," to limit environmental damage to the coast, but stopped short of declaring Jt a disaster area. Gov. Michael S. Dukakis had asked Ford earlier In the day for a disaster declaration that would make affected fishermen and related businesses eligible for low- interest loans. Massachusetts officials feared local fishermen will lose ut least $t« million If the oil blankets the area.
