Women In Law Enrollment in U.S. law schools in 1974 includes 4,800 blacks, nearly 2,800 members of other minorities, and 16,760 women. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Many small liquor retailers would be forced out of business if the legislature enacts a bill to ban minimum markups of alcoholic beverages, a spokesman for the Indiana Tavern Owners Association told a Senate hearing Wednesday night. Spokesmen for the liquor industry also told the Senate Public Policy Committee the measure, SB177, would eliminate all Alcoholic Beverage Commission power over pricing. Little Dealers "This law would hurt the small 'mom and pop' operations the little dealers," said Joe Quill for the Tavern Owners Association.

"New York passed sim-v ilar legislation in 1964 and it virtually wiped out all the small operations," he said, "and New York had to return to minimum pricing (the system now used in Indiana) because of this." Sen. Rodney Piper, D-Muncie, a member of the committee, pointed out that New York adopted an "affirmation law" in 1969 which requires wholesalers to sell for the same prices as they do in other states.

Also in opposition to the proposal was Charles Deets of the Indiana Independent Liquor Package Store Association, who said the present system in Indiana does not permit unfair competition or unfair profits. "But Senate Bill 177 would undoubtedly cause financial harm to several thousand small dealers," Deets said. After the session, Sen. Morris H. Mills, R-In-dianapolis, sponsor of the bill, said he did not think the present fixed markup system is the best way to control the liquor industry.

Was Introduced Mills said he would not amend his bill to include an affirmation law, but Piper said a measure containing such provisions had been introduced in the House earlier Wednesday. "I think that will wind up as the law," Piper said. Piper also said he thought the affirmation law would give the "little guy" a better break and put them in a better position to compete for business now lost to consumers who travel to other states to buy liquor. which, given the previous position of American power, would not have occurred." The defense secretary did not identify the areas he referred to during a question-and-answer session at a conference sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Schlesinger said that, as a result of the Arab oil embargo and economic problems of the past year or so, "much greater emphasis must be placed on the security of supply" of oil and other raw materials from abroad.

As he has done repeatedly in the past, Schlesinger warned that a continuation of the trend which he said finds Russian military spending rising while U.S. forces shrink would have ominous implications. He appealed for judgments on the defense budget to be based on Soviet military capabilities rather than on what he called irritations and "commitments at the hustings," an obvious allusion to anti-military sentiment growing out of the Vietnam war.

"I think it is plain that many of the difficulties that we have encountered in recent years are as a result of a perceived decline of American power and the consequent effect is that the United States is no longer regarded as awesome," Schlesinger said.

Wyman contended at least 3,500 ballots should be examined and possibly even malfunctioning voting machines and absentee ballots as well.

The votes have been counted and recounted twice, and in the latest count, Louis Wyman, the Republican, is ahead by 2 votes. The Democratic Senate decided Tuesday not to seat Wyman or Democrat John Durkin until the Senate Rules Committee can investigate. "I'm not bitter at all," said Wyman. "Lookit, I've been around the track. I know what's going on here." Wyman is seeking a broad review of the Nov.
