Wood Is 1 of 3 Solons Who Dispute Action by Shapp that will Philadelphia The case decide whether Egidio Cerilli or Lester Burlein is the pretender to a Turnpike Commission seat is ready for argument before the state Supreme Court. Both Democrat Cerilli and Republican Burlein claim title to one of the five commissioner positions. appepar at work daily decisions to the other four commissioners and their salaries in ar. escrow account.

Burlein, the commission chairman, was appointed lie the agency in 1963. His 10-year term has ended, but grounds' refused to leave on that Cerillli's appointment by Gov. Shapp was illegal. Burlein says he can serve until a legal sucnamed. Cerillli, a former union offiheaded the Westmoreland County district of the state Transportation Department prior to his appointment last Dec.

31. In arguments scheduled Monday, court was to hear a Republican challenge to 680 appointments made by Shapp without Senate confirmation. Cerilli's appointment was one of them. Three Republican senators charge Shapp's action was illegal because only the Senate was adjourned when the appointments were made. T.

Newell Wood, Richard C. Frame and Richard A. Tilghman contend both houses must quit for the year before a governor can bypass the two-thirds Senate confirmation vote. The Senate is controlled by Democrats, the House by Republicans-who refused to adjourn in an effort to block the appointments. Shapp ignored the GOP tartic and made the appointments anyway.

Named were members of the Labor Relations Board, Milk Marketing Board, Liquor Control Board, state licensing boards, trustees of state hospitals, state college trustees and county boards of assistance, among others. Shapp bypassed the confirmation process because he's been unable to muster the two-thirds majority. The Democratic Senate margin is 25-23. Other governors have used the same tactic: appoint officials for interim one-year terms and if they're not conifrmed duirng the year, reappoint them after final of Many are serving at least their second interim term. Normally, different positions carry reguiar terms of varying lengths.

On Dec. 29, two days before Shapp acted, the Supreme Court upheld 864 appointments made by the governor following the 1971 adjournment. In that, instance, both houses had year. In their brief, attorneys for Wood, Frame and Tilghman argue: "There is no question the Senate attempted to adjourn sine die finally on Dec. 31, 1973, and that it attempted to do so without requesting or receiving consent of the House or Representatives.

Plaintiffs contend that the Senate was without power to take this action without the consent of the House of Representatives." Atty. Gen. Israel Packel and the governor's counsel, Lawrence Beaser, counter in their brief: "The constitution makes no reference to a need for approval, concurrence or joint action by the House of Representatives. Nor is there any reference to sine die adjournment of the 'General Assembly." Rather, only 'recess of the Senate' is mentioned. Frank J.
