New Orleans, a McKeithen floor leader, said the move would require 75 more state police employes and would cost an extra $240, 000. Another McKeithen Senate leader, Sen. Jamar A d c o c k, Monroe^ said the governor urged patience until the pay raise could be provided. "I beg of you, give him (McKeithen) time," Adcock appealed to the Senate. "1 can assure you that these people will bc properly taken care of." Twin hearings on Gov.

Adcock announced his Senate Judiciary C Committee will consider only the code of ethics bill in a hearing at 2 p.m. Tuesday, instead of at a Monday meeting as planned earlier. Rep. Edward Lebreton, Orleans Parish, said after a conference with administration leaders that first action would come on the code of ethics in the Senate, since the House had a large workload. 1 As the Senate left for the week end, Sen. Rayburn announced i his Senate Finance Committee would take up the proposed $48.8 sick" of hearing talks about giving the state a better image when all the breaks were going "to the big shots." He referred to Gov. McKeithen's industrial inducement program, and said a big tax rebate is being given to industries even though they may buy their natural gas from neighboring states. "1 want to help the little ones loo," Kayburn said.
