That's became the flB,000-a-year off- Ice held by Murray since 1M6 will belong, In effect, to next week's primary-election winner. No Republican seeks to be secretary of state. Three other candidates for state office -- all incumbents -- don't even have to sweat out the primary, because they have no opposition at all. Unofficially re-elected -- by default of the Republican party -- are these Democrats: James ft. Shea and George Turman. to the!/ |l»,000--ye*r district seats on the Public Service Commission, and Thomas J. Kearney, to his J14.000 post as Supreme Court clerk. Already considered nominated, for want of opponents, and thus advanced to November genera I-elect ion contests are two Republicans. They are A u d i t o r E.V. ''Sonny" Omholt, who seeks re-election to the $18,000-a-year office he has held since 1962, and James T. Harrison Jr., Helena, who wants the office of attorney general. Harrison was majority leader of the Monism House in 1971 and alw served In the state Senate. In the fall. Omholt will face either But- U legislator Robert J. Harper or Mis- souJa insurance executive Jerry M. Mil- cheil. Mitchell said recently he was dropping out of the Democratic primary in favor of Harper. However, when he learned this wasn't possible as the withdrawal deadline was past, Mitchell said he would accept the nomination if chosen by the voters. On Nov. 2, Harrison is to take on the winner of Tuesday's Democratic contest between stale Sen. Mike Greely, for six years a deputy Cascade County attorney, and Thomas F Dowling.

Department attorney Bruce McGinnis said the agency will ask for a hearing in July or August. The ruling by District Court Judge Jack Green of Missoula was the first court defeat for the program, which has been attacked by lawsuits in 16 counties and halted in 15 of those by preliminary injunctions, McGinnis said. Only three other cases had been decided and the state won them all. Taxpayers in those cases did not appeal. Green ruled that the plan violates both the Montana and U.S. constitutions because it is not a uniform, statewide program. He issued a permanent injunction barring the department from implementing the plan -- or any substitute -- in Missoula County "unless and until such plan or program is part of a general and uniform statewide plan which shall have been approved by the court prior to its implementation." Green's ruling has no force outside Missoula County unless it is upheld by the Supreme Court. Governor's tax statement sought HELENA (AP) - A Republican party official called on Democratic Gov. Thomas L. Judge again Wednesday, asking him to make his full federal and state tax statements public. "What does the governor have to hide in his returns that cannot stand public examination?" party chairman Mrs. Florence Haegen asked. "Montanans have the right to know this type of infor- mation in the selection of the slate's highest official and Judge is no exception to that rule." Judge's campaign officials already have disclosed that Judge paid no state income tax in 1975 and very little federal tax, a t t r i b u t i n g the situation to a business setback and saying the governor would not release additional tax information.

Baucus gives worth WASHINGTON (AP) Rep. Max Baucus, DM o n t . , on W e d n e s d a y released a personal financial statement listing his 1976 personal net worth at $328,183. Just two y e a r s ago, Baucus -- then a candidate for the U.S. House--listed his net worth at $218,000. Now, he says, the original report was inaccurate. The 1976 s t a t e m e n t reflects a $55,443 increase in Baucus' net worth when compared to his 1974 net worth. The congressman noted that the revised 1974 statement i n c l u d e s an a d d i t i o n a l a m o u n t of $51,850 representing notes due him from his ranch holdings. Baucus' 1976 statement shows his total holdings in Sieben Ranch Co. include nearly $228,000 in stock and a total of $57,335 in notes due stockholders.
