Fauske as he had done many things for the state.                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  KELLY  said   that  Dan  Fauske  had   been  a  "utility

Republican and  Democrat administrations;  it doesn't  bother him

they  throw him  the  ball  constantly. He'll  be  proud to  vote                                                               
tomorrow to name  this building after Mr. Fauske  and wished they
