At the same time, dutiful administraiton of certain offices can result in the loss of votes at the polls. Also, there is little that is of partisan political nature in conducting many offices. Republican or democratic principles have little to do with issuing a deed, accepting a tax check, filling out a driver's license or administering books. One problem affects the holder of the office each time the term comes to an end. The incumbent must face reelection which can be a relatively expensive procedure considering the cost of campaigning. Office holders might feel this is burdensome when compared with the compensation paid for the job. It would seem that the order of conducting much of county and state government business would be better served with appointment of certain office holders rather than election. We would still be electing the persons who would be making the ap- pointments. However, there is another side of the coin.

The Supreme Court said the safety inspection law was faulty because it allowed special interest exemptions for some vehicles. The justices ruled certain provisions in the law were "so riddled with exceptions for special purposes and special interest groups that its effectiveness and goals are unobtainable." The high court's ruling did not render safety inspections invalid. Instead, it disallowed exemptions for certain vehicles that the justices said should be treated equally with other vehicles. Lawmakers no doubt will review the opinion and consider drafting legislation to meet the court's objections. A number of senators, after all, believe safety inspections are worthwhile and indeed promote ,safety. Whether ipection types_ can find the support to enact a now wogram in a large part will depend on what type of legislation they draft. Another determining factor will be what accident and fatality records reflect during the months when the inspections are not required. Supporters of the program believe lives can be saved and injuries avoided by ha ving.saf.ety inspections. But there no doubt will be considerable lag time emre that fact, if true, shows up in the statistics. In the meantime, eyes will be on the Lancaster County District Court, which is expected to conduct a spring trial on Mrs. Gessman's suit. Christian Schools In Court The legislature's failure to act on the Christian school controversy during the 1982 session has prompted county at- torneys across the state to begin filing court suits against unapproved church schools. Lancaster County Attorney Mike Heavican, for example, recently filed.suit against two tmapproved Christian schook in his county. Lack of state-mandated teacher certification is among the key issues. Perkins County also is seeking an injunction to close a Mennonite school in its boundaries. Again, teacher certification is at issue. A key difference in this case, however, is that Mennonites do not believe "_m .edtcati be.yond the eighth .grade: The oldest case in the CIr.. ttan school controversy is t_ t Ot Faith Baptist and its Christian school in Louisville.
