See COUNCILL Bush slogan has roots within family By Calvin Woodward Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — Texas Gov. George W. Bush is taking pains in politics to be his own man, but a new biography says the Republican presidential candidate is using a slogan that was applied to his father. “Compassionate conservative” was used by Ron Kaufman, an aide to the senior Bush when he was running for president in the mid-1980s, in a Christian magazine article designed to make religious conservatives comfortable with the candidate, the biography says. “First Son: George W. Bush and the Bush Family Dynasty,” was released today. The book, the first in a new series of competing biographies coming out on the GOP front-runner, was written by Bill Minutaglio, a Dallas Morning News reporter. The evenhanded book leaves unsettled two questions from the governor’s past. It avoids any “dollops of drug tales” — the long-stand- See BUSH/3A BUSH Robert Konkel, 41, has been fighting AIDS since 1990.

The tall Texan with a wide grin shows a flash of speed while running down a fly ball, turns and fires a shot that pops as it finds the leather mitt of a catcher more than I OO feet away. People are again talking about Stan Hollmig, an original “Whiz Kid” who made it to the big leagues and helped a bunch of young Philadelphia Phillies topple the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950, turning the baseball world upside down. Hollmig. who passed away in 1981, will be inducted Friday into the Texas A&M Athletics Hall of Fame. Among those expected to attend the 22nd annual Burgess Banquet and accept the honor on his behalf is the former Aggie’s wife, Mary Ann. “This brings back a lot of memories,” Mary Ann Hollmig said recently while sitting in the New Braunfels home she and Stan moved into in 1959. Mary Ann was, of all things, a University of Texas student when she met a Texas A&M football and baseball player in 1947. She was a fine arts major from Houston, while he was a Fredericksburg native who grew up in Hondo. The young couple saw each other “oft' and on” during 1948, Mary Ann said. Both had their studies to attend to and Stan had the responsibilities of a two-sport athlete that kept him busy. When they did get to spend time together, Mary Ann said, there was something about the 6-foot-3 man that she admired. “He was a fella that had the respect of everybody,” she said. Perhaps Stan Hollmig’s character was a product of what his wife called a “deep religious faith.” As a young man who went to A&M after an enlistment in the Air Force during World War ll, Hollmig struck those who knew him as someone others like having around. “He was very quiet and had a dry sense of humor,” Robert McDonnell said. A batting coach for the Phillies when Hollmig joined the team in 1949, McDonnell said he remembered the 23-year-old from Texas as a good player and gentleman who was known as “Hondo,” a nickname Hollmig’s fellow players and coaches often used.
