Pagr I2A \EW.S-IIERALf>. Panama City, Fla., Thursday, SepU-mtK-r 13. W3 Adams Suggested To Head Bicentennial Commission Plan Retreat For Deaf TALLAHASSEE (UPI) State Sen. James Glisson (R-Eustis) suggested Tuesday that Gov. Reubin A-skew make Lt. Gov. Tom Adams the executive director of the Bicentennial Commission. Adams .serves as chairman of the commission, his only official duty since being stripped of his jobs as .secretary of commerce and chairman of the State Manpower Development Commission. Askew relieved Adams of those jobs when it was revealed that he had used Commerce Department employes for personal business. He appointed former St. Petersburg Mayor Donald L. Spice r to succeed Adams in both jobs. The house censured Adams, but declined to impeach him. Glisson said that, as a member of the Bicentennial Commission, he has "taken special note of the fact that the duties of Lt. Gov. Adams have now diminished to the singular role of chairman of the Florida Bicentennial Commission." He said the commission's $20.000-a-year executive director recently resigned. Glisson suggested that Adams take the job and ser\'e as both chairman and executive director. "The appointment of the lieutenant governor to that office as well would constitute a savings in excess of $20,000 per year, since the lieutenant governor will receive his $36,000-a-year salary with or without specific duties," said Glisson in a letter to the governor. Under the constitution, the lieutenant governor has no mandatory duties. The governor appointed Adams secretary of commerce, chairman of the Ma n power-Development Commission and chairman of the Bicentennial Commission upon taking office in 197L After the controversy arose about Adam-s' of state employes for personal chores. Askew stripped him of the two Commerce Department jobs and left him chairman of the commission that is planning Florida's 200th anniversary celebration.
