The house, composed of 02 new members, was picked as a possible trouble sjxit for the coventor before tht session opened, but has aone down the line almost 100 percent for the administration. With the exception of thj rcorgani-ration features of the school code bill, the lower branch of the legislature has Kiven the uovrrnor about everything he has asked for. Virtually all major proposals in the coventor' program have been passed by the house members. Turner Scores Triumph The governor's major triumph of the session came the past week when! the house passed the controversial tas! tax and farm-to-markct bills. j House members took a lot of political heat to vote for tho 1-cent raise! in the Kas U.x. The revenue will go! to county commissioners for school bus and mall route roads. The other bill transfers the farm-i to-markct program from county com-j missioners to the state highway tle-j-partment.

Station officials explain that this map is not particularly significant insofar as setting the station's area of coverage is concerned. That area will not be known until exhaustive field tests are made.
