Ford will issue his amnesty program next week, these sources said. The Associa'ted Press learned thai the flexible for- mula has been substituted for an earlier proposed 18-month service plan. Military deserters and draft evaders would be dealt with on a case-by-casc basis, wilh their period of alternative service depending in part on Ilieir military and Selective Service record. President Ford declared his support of conditional amnesty Aug. 19. But announcement of Ihe specific plan has been de- layed several times while de- tails were worked out. Officials working on the plan insist that Ford's pardon of President Nixon and Uie subsequent public and con- gressional reaction did not cause Ihe tlclavs. Local Politicians Aim to Keep Committee women Few Surprises Expected by GOP PAUL WASHBURX sees lew festivities By JIM COXLEY Staff Writer The delegation- of about 23 Taylor Counly Republicans Uiat County Chair- man Paul Washburn leads to Houslon for Tuesday's state convention hopes, like local Dcmocrals, to keep its veter- an Sen atonal. District commilteewom- an in her job for another lour of duty. Mrs. Jack McGlothlin, who has served four years in the post, almost certainly will be reelected, said Wash- burn, while Doug DeCluitt of Waco should be Uie yih district's comnnltec- man. "Our delegation would have as a mam goal her said Wash- burn, "and as far as I know she has no opposition." WHILE WACO has more votes than Abilene, the districl is-expected lo name Mrs. McGlolhlin and DeCluitt its. representatives; neither end of the dis- tricl has a majority which could rail- road its candidates into office without some support from other. The GOP convenlion begins at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston. A possible liighlight of the convenlion ironically won't be taking place, indi- cated Washburn, in that President Ford was engaged to speak but apparently won't now because he moved up to the presidency since those plans were made. Washburn now.doesn't expect much in'the way of festivities at (tie conven- tion, although he said a reception prob- ably will be held the night before.

Young attorney Charles Scarborough, chairman of Ihe delegation, said that "from a practical standpoint, if we get the commilteewoman, we're not going to get the commiltcenian." He said he believes Coke Mills of Waco is a near certain choice.for com- miliceman, as Waco has 91 delegates lo Abilene's 46, out of Ite 212 votes available in this district's senatorial caucus. The caucus of the 2-lth Senatorial Dis- trict will lie at 9 a.m. on TuosOav in Christie's Seafood Restaurant, just cast of the Auditorium. "IT WILL TAKE 107 votes (or i ma- said Scarborough." and I ha- ven't heard of any opposition to Mills yet..." Be.yond the candidacy of Mrs. Per- kins as a special inlerest to the local delegates, Scarborough said he doesn't know of any major issues lo be brought up at the convention or any major res- olutions might divide the house. "There may be resolutions concern- ing the issue of pardoning Watereate he said, "or regarding amnesty.. .and Ihere certainly will be a resolution proposed praising all pur Democratic elected officials.
