Lucky and his handler, Spec. 4 George Millbrand of Rich- marijuana detection teams in the Army. Others are assigned to Ft. Lewis, Wash.; Ft. Wainwright, Alaska, and the Presidio in San Francisco. Following some 400 hours of training at Ft.

(AP) - A citizen's committee to study pay of Kansas legislators commenced deliberations Friday and elected former Gov. John Anderson as temporary chairman. : The nine-member commission includes three members appointed by the governor and three each by Senate President Pro Tern Glee Smith, R-Larned, and • House Speaker Calvin Strowig, R-Abilene. Members of the committee indicated an early interest in reports made by similar commission in other states. ' They said they want to know particularly the reasoning be hind recommendations in other states either for legislative pay Some Foes of Filibuster In Turnabout WASHINGTON (AP) - Some Of the worst enemies of the Senate filibuster have decided that unlimited talk isn't such a bad idea after all. As a result, the rule requiring a two-thirds vote to curb Senate debate, often fought at the start of new sessions, now appears Unshakeable. The shift has come about over the past seven months as liberal Democratic senators, who once considered the filibuster a tool of Southerners bent on blocking civil rights legislation, discovered the system can work for them too. Led the Effort Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, who led the unsuccessful effort to change the rule at the begin. ning of the current Congress, said experience provides a strong case for keeping Senate Rule 22. This requires a two-thirds vote to invoke cloture, which limits every senator to one more hour of debate on the issue at hand. ., Twice This- Year It has been done twice this yiigar, both times on the bill to extend the draft for two years mostly recently, on Sept. 21 The. vote for cloture then was 61 ,r to 30, just enough to end a filibuster threatened by Sens. Alan Cranston, D-Calif., and Mike Gravel, D-Alaska. '•''Cranston said he will vote to pefain the present two-thirds rule if the question comes up again when the 93rd Congress eonvenes in 1973. The rules fight at the beginning of the current session tied up i he Senate in a filibuster that ran for nearly six weeks. increases or against such hikes. Anderson, attitude of summarizing the the commission'of members, said they want to know why there should be a recommendation for more pay and what it might do for the good of the state. Anderson asked Dr. James Drury, head of the legislative research department, to try to get summaries of studies in other states. Anderson, who also is president of the Citizens Conference on State Legislatures, said he would try to get that organiza- ation's executive director to address the Kansas commission at an early date. No One Better "There probably is no one who is better informed," Anderson said. The commission reviewed material provided by Drury on the history of legislative pay in Kansas. From 1861 until 1947 the payj of legislators was fixed by the! state Constitution at $3 per day. Five attempts to change the pay during this period were voted down by the citizens of the stale. Given Voter Okay In 1948, the voters approved an amendment to increase the pay to $5 per day. In 1960, the voters voted down an amendment to hike it to $15 per day, but in 1962 approved an amendment allowing the legislature to fix the pay of its members. Gls Wake Up To KP-Less Day FT. CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — Gls woke up Friday to a day may have dreamed about, but never thought would come. Civilians, not soldiers, are on KP. "It's a good idea, but it won't work," said Spec. 4 James R. Hall of Clayton, N.C. "The civilians aren't going to work for the mess sergeant like he wants them to, and he won't be able to order them to work." But interviews with other en listed men here indicated Hall was in the minority. Most were more optimistic. Spec. 4 Joseph Ray Gore of Arnold, Mo., observed: "I can use the extra weekend time to go home." The idea is not new to the Army—but it's new to Ft. Campbell. And the mess sergeants, apparently more optimistic than Hall, say they approve. "I had two men cooks in my mess hall about three years ago and they worked out real well," said Sgt C. William C. Weatherwax of Schenectady, N.Y. "For one thing, it will help get rid of the Army atmosphere in the mess hall." vestigation agent H. W. Wil liamson. Found Them All Williamson hid varied amounts of marijuana in barracks and offices on the military post. Lucky, with a sense of smell some 40 times more powerful than that of a human, detected each cache. Lucky will use his nosey in vestigation on the footlockers of all Ft. Riley soldiers who leave next month for Reforger III, the NATO training maneuvers in Germany, During his stay at Ft. Riley, Lucky will be available upon written request to the Staff Judge Advocate's officer to any commander who suspects the presence of marijuana. Several Methods The canine uses several methods to alert his handler once he has detected the smell marijuana. Millbrand said Navajo Reservation Has A Wide Range WINDOW ROCK, Ariz.

Hutchinson News Saturday, Oct. 2, 1971 Page 12 Sooners in Multi-Party White House Bid By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | Oklahoma may not have a native occupying the White House for the next four years, but it won't be for not trying. . Five candidates who either are native of the Sooner State, or who live in Oklahoma now, are announced candidates. The best known, obviously, is Sen. Fred Harris, the outgoing U.S. senator. His campaign of "new populism" has been well- publicized and he has done considerable traveling. Lucky may whine, quiver, bark or get down on his knees but eventually will settle on specific signals. "The handler knows his dog better than he knows his own wife," said Capt. James E. Knight, officer in charge of Ft. Riely's detective team. Short Span Millbrand said Lucky's attention span ranges from 30 to 90 minutes, after which he must refresh the dog's sense of smell for the sweet, musty odor of marijuana. Lucky will be capable of detecting the narcotic weed the rest of his life, but Knight said the dog will maintain the level of acceptance for Army work, only about eight years. After Millbrand completes his tour of duty and is discharged, Lucky will be returned to the Ft. Gordon school. If he accepts a new handler, he will return to his sniffing duties. Otherwise he flunks out and returns to civilian life. Richard Maxson India Draws Film Focus DENNIS THE MENACE "Mm momio MMJGS&F, DAP ?
