Kennedy, a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 1972, said he will move quickly for Senate approval of a constitutional amendment applying it to state and local elections. Provisions of the 1970 Federal Voting Rights Act, upheld by the court action, take effect Jan. 1. .'. ', Many state officials said the court's decision will require separate registration lists for voters Under and over the age of 21. Some foresaw the expensive possibility of two- sets of voting machines or paper ballots. The high court approved also, 8 to 1, the abolition of residency requirements of more than 30 days for voting in presidential elections and approved unanimously the ^suspension of state literacy 'tests for five years.. Sortie slate officials said they will ask their legislatures for a the arguments! The women were removed .from court'after a scuffle with bailiffs. They had shouted at the judge and audience as Miss Van Houten protested appointment of a substitute for her lawyer, Ronald Hughes, missing and believed lost on a Thanksgiving holiday camping trip. Her newly tourt appointed attorney is Maxwell Keith, a veteran criminal lawyer. ; •.'•'. "I have nothing to do with Mr. Ronald Hughes disappearing!" Miss Van Houten shouted at the judge. "In fact, I'm wondering what did you do with him." Ignoring the judge's orders to be seated, the slim brunette tussled with deputies, slapped one bailiff on the hand and told the . Judge, could."

Haggwick spent a week,in November here on the case. Ackerman said the boy was asleep when bitten on the left thumb by a bat which apparently entered the Winkler home through the attic. , Mr. , and Mrs, Nicholas Wink ler said they hea/d the boy scream and rushed to his bedroom where they found the bat clinging to the boy's left thumb. Tests later by the Ohio Department of Health proved the bat rabid. Treatment was begun four days after the bite and the boy was given .the Pasteur duck embryo vaccine, which is the standard treatment. . However, Matthew •developed symptoms of the disease. He became lethargic, was partly paralyzed in his left arm and had trouble speaking. He was hospitalized Nov. 3. On Dec. I, the boy began to improve after nearly one month of intensive care that included oxygen, medication to combat convulsions and constant heart monitoring. He is still weal?, doctors report, and has difficulty .with his speech, ,but is fully conscious. He is expected to remain at the hospital for another month for further medication, and to receive speech and physical therapy. ; J The U.S. Public Health Service says it plans to conduct additional studies in the case.

Monday's high court action came in a series of separate decisions. 1 After the court upheld the Voting Rights Act provision giving 18-year-olds the ballot in federal elections) Justice Hugo L. Black shifted and helped defeat, 5 to 4, another section that would have* lowered the voting age in state elections.

Neighboring residents at that time expressed fear the Dover Housing project would lower property values among other things. On the legislative side, the lawmakers suspended rules to pass an ordinance authorizing the service director to contract with the city engineers, George A. Fiedler and Associates, to prepare drawings and specifications for the secondary treatment plant, required by state law, and for sanitary sewer facilities on Route 39. The projects will be financed through the general fund and sewerage fund.

A third and final reading was given an ordinance appropriating $220,000 for construction of a municipal swimming pool and bathhouse and Service Director Arthur Hanni was authorized to advertise for bids on the complex. Hanni reported that the city's landfill site has been approved by the state and requested that the service committee begin work on legislation authorizing use of the landfill.
