He had a belly full and ie did something about it." That was the blunt praise of a 'eteran policeman for the rookie state trooper who broke open ast year's half million dollar rucking firm scandal. The rookie was revealed Tuesday as Rodney D. Mikel, 29, now assigned to District 9 in Spring- eld. The praise came from Mikel's boss, James McMahon, assistant director of public safety. McMahon was questioned by reporters after Mikel's role was re- 'ealed Tuesday during the Civil Service trial of suspended Capt. Edwin J. Dvorak. During cross-examination by Dvorak's lawyer, Mikel testified that he was rebuffed by his immediate superiors when he com- lained that he was receiving rucking company checks in the lail. Mikel was at that time a state rooper of a little over a year, tationed at District 3 in Chicago. After he got no action from his uperiors, he testified, he hap- icned to meet Maj. Francis Kp- r, the assistant state police superintendent who visited District on an inspection trip. He said he approached Major Piper and an aide and "told hem of my troubles and prob- ems. The next day they took a jtatement from me, and latex- men of the investigation section ook another statement." Dvorak at that time, was cap- ain of District 3. Mikel . said he received 28 jhecks totaling 5460 from truck- ng firms. He testified he deposited the checks in a special account and never touched any of .he money.

Swank to Be Sole Head • 0>f Welfare By ARTHUR L. SUB SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) - Vhen Gov. Otto Kerner signs a bill abolishing the Illinois Public Aid Commission, direction of the multi-million dollar welfare program will be placed in the hands of one man. Gone will be the 10-member commission, its haggling over policies and its frequent split de- citions on controversial aid programs. Slated to take over as director of the new Public Aid Department is Harold 0. Swank, .veteran welfare worker and executive secretary of the IPAC for the past year. Swank will be responsible only to Kerner, and public aid' policies are expected to reflect the governor's views from now on. One of the chief criticisms ol the commission was the inability of the governor to pinpoint responsibility. Although Swank will assume far greater control under the new setup, he plans no drastic changes in public aid programs. "Our chief concern will still be rehabilitation of recipients — getting people employed and off the aid rolls," Swank said in an in terview. Sen. W. Russell Arrington, sponsor of the bills abolishing the commission, predicted the transition from a commission to a code department, "will be as smooth as the flow of undisturbed water." Asked if he thought the new system would be an improvement, Swank replied: "You could argue all day whether one person's judgment should replace that of 10 persons But it will make for faster shifts in administration when changes are sought." As director, Swank will be in charge of the department's 5,200 workers and the allocation o about $25 million a month in grants to approximately 430,000 persons. In his new post, he will draw $27,500 a year. "I don't think the salary is ou' of line," said Swank, who started out as a $65 a month case worker in the 1930s. Swank said he is not concerned about fears voiced by some legis lators that politics will creep into public aid when the governor as sumes jurisdiction over the purse strings. Swank said he and about a doz en laborers will be the only em ployes in the department who are not under the civil service sys tern. The federal government, ht said, has set standards for the states to follow if they are to re ceive federal funds for welfare re cipients, Its financial participa tion, he said, guarantees non partisan administration of welfare under any structure.
