Davis, House Speaker 'homas Jewell and Lt. Gov. C. C. Aycock have picked a seven- m a n legislative committee to tudy re-apportionment. The committee is dominated by awmakers from small, rural par- shes, who traditionally oppose reshuffling of legislative seats since t would give heavily - populated irban areas more representation. The Louisiana Constitution calls 'or reapportionment every 10 years but the provision has been gnorcd since the present consti- .ution was adopted in 1921. Efforts to reapportion the body during the last session failed. Davis named as his two appointees Reps. Hiram Allen of Tangipahoa Parish and Chester Floyd of LaSalle. The Aycock choices were Sens. B. R. Balton of Farmerville and French Jordan of Gretna. Jewell picked Reps. E. J. Grizzaffi of St. Mary Parish, Warren J. Simon of Vermilion and Salvador Anzelo of New Orleans. Only Jordan and Anzelmo represent metropolitan areas. There was no indication when the legislative committee might meet. Former Sen. J. D. DeBlieux of Baton Rouge has said he was preparing a federal lawsuit (o force reapporlionnient. Similiar suits have been filed with success in other stales since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled earlier this year (hat lower federal courts could act when state legislatures refuse to reapportion. since he took office in 1960.
