Remap (Continued from Page One) The latest were by Sen. Paul Stanish, D-Hammond, and Rep. Charles B. Howard, R-Noblesville. Earlier, Mankin said a "feeling of despair" over how to solve reapportionment prompted consideration of more than one plan for passage. Mankin checked with the attorney general's office and learned it is legally acceptable to enact "stand-by" proposals which would become effective if the federal judges refused to accept a first-choice plan but found alternate plans palatable. Mankin said he felt the interest in the stand-by plan idea "reflects a feeling of despair as to how to put together a plan which is at all politically feasible." "I go along with the idea of multiple plans if they present different legal theories so that if one plan is not acceptable to the courts, we have a plan with a different theory." He said the lawmakers felt "despair as to how to satisfy the court." "The despair reflects the fact anything we decide on will have a certain amount of guess involved as to what the courts will decide," Mankin said Sen. David Rogers, D-Bloomington, chairman of the Senate reapportionment committee, said the committee took no action on approving any specific plan in a morning meeting pending study of further bills. Unveils New Plan Sen. Alan Kleinman, D-Indianapolis, unveiled a ninth plan to add to the eight which were actually introduced Monday on the opening day of the session. He said his plan was "certain to draw Marion and Lake County support" because it raised Marion's senators to eight, compared with seven in the other plans, and a Lake- Porter joint district to six compared with five for Lake in the other plans. Kleinman also disclosed the Democratic majority has been thinking in terms of three alternate plans for passage — one first-choice, one first alternate, and one second alternate. Meanwhile, members of the General Assembly, which twice in 10 months had its reapportionment law ruled unconstitutional by a federal court, gathered for .the second meeting of the second special session this year. And the lawmakers are talking in multiple choice terms rather than concentrating upon enacting a single reapportionment map, as ithey were before this session opened. Senate President Pro Tern Jack Mankin, D-Terre Haute, said he did not believe the Hoosier lawmakers would offer more than one plan at a time to the three- judge federal panel which invalidated the reapportionment law enacted by these same lawmakers last March. Would Have Backstop "But if the court would rule our first choice uncontitutional, we would have back-up proposals," he explained. The Senate received five plans Monday and the House three, so picking the "first choice" and "second choice" measures has complications. Mankin said there is legal precedent for enacting backup legislation which would become effective only if a certain future event occurred. He referred the reporters to a 1933 state law to end Prohibition in Indiana in the event Congress repealed the Volstead Act, which it later did after the Hoosier lawmakers had adjourned their session. The legislators were not the only ones who were talking in terms of taking out insurance against losing another reapportionment plan by the unconstitutional route. Atty. Gen. John Dillon announced that he will appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court from the Sept. 20 ruling '£ threei judge ^district federal' court panelK" [<! "" 1 <- ! •' He said filing a notice of appeal by the Wednesday deadline was necessary "to keep open the question of what the Attorney General's office would do in the event' that the Legislature could not come up with an apportionment plan that satisfies the three-judge court " Time Up Oct. 20 . "This technicality is required by the fact that the 30 days runs out Oct. 20 while the legislature is still in session and possibly will not have resolved :hat matter by that date," Dillon said. "Whether the appeal will be pursued will then be determined on the 'basis of whether the legislation that is passed this week will be approved by the court." The three House plans introduced Monday—and some of the Senate plans—had been revised from a clarifying conference called Saturday. Judge William E. Steckler, Indianapolis, one of the three federal judges who participated in holding the 1963 and 1965 reapportionment plans unconstitutional, invited the parties to the court suit to a conference. Dillon was quoted by one source as telling Steckler at the close of the long conference that he was more confused about what was wanted than he had been at the beginning. Speaker of the House Richard | Bodine and Rep. William 'Brighton, D-Terre Haute, said any thought of crossing county lines was discarded on all three House plans introduced Monday in the lower chamber because Steckler said such crossing would not be acceptable. However, they said they felt Steckler regarded a deviation of more than 7Vz per cent above or :below ideal to foe of doubtful constitutionality, or a total of 15 per cent deviation, rather than 15 per c,ent up and-or down. Describes Goal Mankin said he felt Steckler- was trying to stress that the goal of the lawmakers was to come as near ideal districts as possible and not to think in terms of how much deviation would toe possible. Mankin's plan, tabbed as top choice in the Senate, was unchanged from the form in which it.was outlined to the senatorial Democrat caucus Oct. 9. It is based on separation of Marion, Lake and Vanderburgh from satellite counties, leaving each with 7, 5 and 2 senators, respectively. Other special joint districts pointed out as unconstitutional were thrown into, single districts in which all residents vote for all senators from the involved counties. Sen. Rodney Pipe, D-Muncie, whose name is on another Senate reapportionment bill based on a draft by former Sen. Marshall Kizer, D-Plymouth, has a plan using a sjmilar approach but with differing alignment of the intermediate counties. 'For example, .the "horseshoe" district of Warren, Benton, White, Carroll and Clinton Counties on Mankin's plan, -would be bent to a nearly straight shape of White, Benton, Warren, Fountain, Park and Vermillion, with Carroll going with Cass and Miami. Maddox Out Sen. Charles R. Maddox, R- Otterbein, would be knocked out of the running for re-election by either of these plans but would not by a plan offered by Sen. Marlin K. McDaniel, R-Richmond. mcDaniel attacked Mankin's plan as "whitewashing the former Senate plan held unconstitutional." The MeDaniel plan divides Indiana into 50 separate districts, all within 5 per cent of ideal toy the process of creating districts composed of townships within the larger counties. Sen. Nelson Grills. D-Indianapolis, offered two reapportionment plans, one of which throws the 16 .special joint districts—eight in the Senate and eight in the House—into single districts, with at-large election of senators and representatives. The other concerns only the Senate and calls for Lake to have 5 senators and share one with Porter, and for Marion County to have eight senators. This is a larger share for the state's two most heavily populated counties than the Mankin plan would provide. The three plans introduced in the House Monday have what Brighton called these "main thrusts": "A"—To get as close to the ideal population figure as possible without much regard to other factors. 'B"—To separate large and small counties which were cited by the federal panel as unconstitutional because the vote of the small counties was "diluted" by that'of the larger one.
