(UPI) William Workman, a former mental patient charged with the slayings of four persons and a prime suspect in the killings of three others, has been placed under heavy guard in a hospital for psychiatric care. The action Wednesday came when Workman threatened to kill himself and other prisoners at the Cook County House of Correction. However, shortly after his transfer to Ceaimak Memorial Hospital, he allegedly attacked a psychologist who attempted to interview him. "He's already said he's going to kill some others in the jail plus himself," said Winston Moore, Cook County director of corrections. "He's nutty as a loon." Workman, 43, an unemployed carpenter, has been charged with murder in the Tuesday rifle sdayingg of his parents, a neighbor woman and her 12- year-old daughter.

Walker might also sign both bills, but this is considered un- likefly since together their price tag would be about $200 million. Depends on Provisions If as Harris promises the Senate kills Choate's exemption bill and the assembly passes an RTA measure, what Walker does would depend on the funding provisions in the bill. For example, House Speaker W. Robert Blair's RTA bill contains taxing authority of $100 million from the sales tax, $56 million from a gas tax hike at the pump and $145 million from a utilities tax, plus several other lesser levies. Ti Walker got the Blair bill in this form, he would likely strike the sales tax reduction via his veto and fund RTA with the utilities tax. But if no RTA bill reaches his desk, Waflker will be hard- pressed to find a reason to junk the sales tax out since it would no longer be reimposed in the Bix counties. Today was tlie last day for the House to untangle the complicated dual issues of mass transit aid and tax relief if the Senate Is to act on them by the June 30 adjournment date.
