(AP) - An interim ways and means committee recommended for approval Monday a plan for Plan Has State Paying for Unified Court System having the state assume the total cost of funding the unified court system within four years. 8 TRACK TAPES WHOLESALE & RETAIL A FINE SELECTION OF WESTERN-EASY LISTENING POPULAR-CLASSICAL-ROCK MODERN RADIO-T.V.

Main ome 276-2364 Cost of the plan would be $10.28 million more than Kansas now pays for support of the court system, but would be spread over the next four fiscal years, for an average additional cost to the state of $2.75 million each year. Under the plan, the state eventually would assume full burden for paying the salaries of district judges and nonjudi- cial personnel of the court system. The state also would claim the court fees which now go to the counties to help defray cost of the courts. The decision recommending the court funding plan was not unanimous. Rep. Richard L. Harper, R- Fort Scott, objected to the plan, and said he thinks the people were sold "a pig in a poke" when they voted on and approved the judicial reform constitutional amendment in 1974 which paved the way for the unified court system. Harper said he would introduce in the session opening today, CONSERVE ENERGY-CUT HEATING COSTS NOW IS THE TIME TO PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR WINTER! >*'*«•» • Save Energy! • Save Money!

Harper said under the new unified court system, the entire court structure is controlled by a small group of judges and lawyers, who are perhaps more political than was the old system which was eliminated when judges were elected. "I'm opposed to spending any more money on the court system," Harper said in opposing the state assumption of the costs of that system. "What we need is a constitutional amendment to give control back to the people. "If we put a proposition on the ballot to eliminate the unified court system, I don't think there is any doubt it would pass. All we're doing now is giving them big pay increases and freezing them into office.

The proposal to have the state assume payment of the court system calls for an annual 7 percent salary increase for the judicial personnel, including merit pay and cost-of- living increases. Under the proposal, the state would begin in fiscal year 1979 paying the entire salaries of the district court judges, including the local county supplements the judges in the larger counties now receive. The state also would assume next fiscal year paying 35 percent of the costs of the non- judicial personnel, then in- Traveling Art Show at DIGHTON — "American Artists' Views of America," a traveling art show, opens Saturday at the Lane County Historical Museum.
