21 Hit AtItotia Republic , Sit., April 5,19W GOP image Continued from Page i tlon over the next two years. But the present 29th Legislature, although still under Republican control, has turned out to be a different body, especially the brawling Senate which is composed of 13 Democrats and 17 Republicans. Party leaders were not consulted when the GOP senators-elect met in the Scottsdale Valley Ho Hotel to organize the day after the Nov. 5 election. To head off a leadership bid of Sen. John Conlan, R-Maricopa, the group was stampeded into electing Sen. Bill Porter, R-Maricopa, president, and Sen. Kret, also from Maricopa, the majority leader. The Maricopa County Republicans completed the coup by naming Sen. Orme Lewis Jr., R-Maricopa, the whip. The three Pima County Republicans were completely squeezed out of any leadership position. It was this action that set up the resentment which Thursday resulted in the three Pima County Republicans bolting the majority bloc and forcing a weekend adjournment after teaming with the Democratic minority. With the rug pulled from under him, Kret declared there is no longer a majority to lead and said he was being forced to resign as floor leader.. Speaking from his Scottsdale home yesterday, Kret reiterated his opinion that the three Pima County Republicans, Sens. Bill Jacquin, Douglas Holsclaw and Kenneth Cardella, have reduced the Republican bloc to 14 votes. Since it takes 16 votes to organize and operate the Senate, Republicans no longer have control, Kret said. It is now up to the three Pima rebels and the 13 Democrats to reorganize the Senate, he indicated. I In fact, President Porter and Whip Lewis ought to step down as a "courtesy" to make way for such a reorganization, Kret opined. Otherwise, there is no majority bloc responsible for the Senate's operation. Meanwhile, Kret doubted if , either side could muster 16 votes to pass the $297 million general appropriations bill or to break it open to give more operating funds to the univer- ! sities. Whatever happens, Kret won't be here next week anyway. He already is committed to go to the East coast on business or stand to lose an important engineering contract, he said. "I can't raise a family on $6,000 a year (legislative pay)," Kret said. "I have six kids and I want to send some of them to college." Kret said he expects to return to Phoenix next Saturday afternoon and will return to the Senate if the legislature is still in session. Meanwhile, Sen. Porter has temporarily assigned floor- leader duties to Sen. Lewis. The Senate will resume its deliberations at 9:45 a.m. Monday. The House will not , return until 2 p.m. Tuesday. USDA okays 'chickendogs' sans hearing i Associated Press 1 WASHINGTON - The Agriculture Department yester- ; day officially announced it plans to allow chicken meat • in federally inspected hot dogs without holding public hearings on the issue. Department officials said the "chickendog" decision provides for written comment from "interested parties" during a 45-day waiting period beginning Wednesday. The question of whether to permit poultry in cooked sausage products without traditional labelling requirements had been passed on by the Johnson administration. The chickendog proposal would permit up to 15 per cent poultry meat in cooked sausagt products such as wei- , frankfurters and bolo- SATURDAY ONLY, 9:30 to 5:30, AT BOTH STORES!
