TOPEKA (AP) - If legislative votes were cast by occupation, farmers in this year's Kansas house could come pretty close to wielding a majority. Lawyers could do just as well in the Senate. A look at 1963 legislative directories shows that 53 of the 125 state representatives list farming and cattle raising as their primary occupation. Across the way in the senate, 18 of the 40 members are attorneys Oddly enough, farmers are few in numbers in the Senate and lawyers are relatively hard to find in the House. Despite its large membership, the house has but 20 lawyers. There are only six farmers in the Senate. There is but one woman among the 165 legislators, Miss Beatrice L. Jacquart, R-Santana, a newswoman serving her fourth term. A senator is the youngest legislator. Sen. Tom R. Van Sickle, R-Fort Scott, is 25. The House claims the senior member of the session, Rep. Robert Cram, R-St. Francis, is 75. Hospital Notes Admissions Mrs. Joyce Erickson, RFD 2, Wellsville; Dean Gretencord, Richmond; Mrs. Don Randel, RFD 4, Thursday. Dismissals Mrs. Hugh Atherton. 122 S.
