(AP WIrephoto) :. ATLANTA. Gai (AP) -- Lester Maddox, the ex-Georgia governor who once made a brief try for the presidency,'led a 12-man Democratic gubernatorial primary but failed to escape a runoff. Slate Rep. George Busbee, 47 of Albany, appeared to have captured a Sept. 3 runoff spot by running second to Maddox with nearly 22 per cent of the vote as tabulations from Tues- day's' primary election continued today. The chance for Calhoun banker Bert Lance, 43, to make second-place finish dimmed as le collected fewer than 17 per cent of the votes. The 58-year-old Maddox, currently lieutenant governor, hac 34.6 per cent of the votes-about 6 percentage points below what many observers felt he needed for a firm runoff fotm dation. He needed 50 per cen to win without a runoff. Maddox, who briefly sough the Democratic presidentia nomination in 1968, ran success fully for lieutenant governor ii 1970 when the courts rejectee his challenge.'. to a state Ia\ that prevented him from sue ceeding himself.

However, he a. peared headed for a runoff wil former state employe Harol Dye of Atlanta, who had near] 25 per cent. Sen. Herman E.

Ford Pledges Stable Justice Department WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Ford is promising quiet stability for a Justice Department beset for three years with scandal and upheaval. Ford has asked Atty. Gen. William B. Saxbe to continue in office and the two agreed'that the department must operate with freedom from political pressures. Ford seems likely to .lean heavily on Saxbe, Deputy Atty. Gen, Laurence Silberman and other Justice Department officials for his administration's crime-fighting strategy as he devotes his greatest, attention to economic policy. Saxbe' told reporters after meeting with Ford on Tuesday that he expects no "significant changes in departmental policy In the new administration. He said Ford volunteered the promise "that he's not going to interfere in any manner--nor any of his people--with the or derjy law enforcement and lili gating activities of the Justice Department." Saxbe said he told the Presi dent at a Cabinet meeting Sat urday that "I felt that over th last several administrations there, has been a growing in clination for the Department p Justice to become involved in politics and that I felt it wa: not desirable." Ford agreed, Saxbe said. Saxbe was nominated by Nix on and sworn in last January. He succeeded Elliot L. Rich ardson who, in his five'month of office, presided over th prosecution of a vice presiden and acted as an uncomfortabl mediator in the Watergate in- estigalion of a president. Richardson followed two Nix- n attorneys general stained by administration scandals . lichard G. Kleindienst, who leaded guilty to a criminal harge based on his. failure to ell a Senate committee about Nixon's role in the ITT case, nd John N. Mitchell, under in- ictment for his role in the Wa- ergate coverup. With the Watergate invesliga- ion firmly in the hands of spe- ial prosecutor Leon Jaworski,: Saxbe is turning the depart-i ment's attention to nuts-and-i )olts issues. These were among the issues Saxbe said he laid put to Ford: --Pending legislation requir- ng greater government efforts o provide documents requested inder the Freedom of Informa- .ion Act. . --Pending legislation designed to protect citizens from government invasions of priva- :y. --Wiretapping. Saxbe said he assured the President he -will allow no illegal tapping and buggin. --Illegal aliens. Saxbe said he told Ford that the Immigration and Naturalization Service needs funds for more employes despite the President's request to cut spending. --Immigration Service scandals. "We're going to root it out to the very bottom," the attorney general asserted. "I'm not convinced that the corruption is widespread, but what I'm worried about is (whether) there is a cover-up."
