The law, enacted 16 years ago when Democrats were calling the Luxoro FHA Ends Activities Week LUXOHA — A week of observing scliviiies ol the Future Hommiak-' ers of America has ended at Luxora High School.

One senator said an exccplio might be made in the case Stevens, lo permit him to retni his holdings in a family-owne lexlile firm. However, the senalo said Stevens would have to prcser n statement by Wilson saying tha if that firm ever transacted bus ness with the government, th matter would be taken out • Stevens' hands.

It didn't bother the Republicans al the time because, as the parly out of power, they weren't able to reward the politically faithful with patronage jobs. But it's different now that a Republican occupies the While House and the GOP controls Congress. Normally, postmaster appointments are Die nalronage of House members of the dominant political party. In districts wilh no House members of the dominant party senators or stale, political committees are consulted. Only Choice Patronage Poslmaslerships ore about Ihe only choice patronage House members have, and many Republicaas don't like the Idea of being barred from controlling tliem.
