the pressure to perform publicly has lessened She has written a cookbook and designed embroidery kits to be mass produced She is considering a television career And she is beginning to feel free Its been a different year because for one thing Im not Mrs Eisenhower said in an in terview in her Washington apartment I dont think anyone can know what its like to have 24hour protection for six years I dont think David and I ever had a normal situation In the last year weve kind of discovered having fun again and being free being able to pick up and do things and go places I think thats the major happy thing in our lives Its nice not to be under pressure to try and answer questions on every topic of the day especially if you dont think people care what your view is on whether we should send more aid to South Korea I just really value being able to be my own The Eisenhowers two story apartment which overlooks a busy intersection not far from the Kennedy Center is furnished simply with small sofas and high arm chairs A beaded flower arrangement a wedding gift from sister Tricia sits on a table A small picture of her father taken recently in California sits on a shelf in the foyer Mrs Eisenhower requested that no questions about Watergate or her parents be asked ex plaining Im really tired of talking about What she enjoys most these days she said is spending more time with her husband We were so caught up in political events that we really didnt have a life of our own Now we have more time with each other time to talk about our future and what we want out of life Ive come to the conclusion that in marriage you really have to concentrate and give a lot And Ive found that when both partners are involved with something they enjoy thats when theres happy At 27 after years ot shaking hands and giving speeches in the name of the Nixon Administration Mrs Eisenhower is trying to establish her own identity I enjoy working I really do If I hadnt had any interest or work goals when my father left office my life would have been very empty Having these things going has been very important during the first year he has been out of She has written Julie Eisenhowers Cookbook for a volume of recipes collected from friends Included are such items as Pink Panther and Daddys Favorite Steak The recipes range from inedible but decorative play dough cookies to a more difficult somewhat spicy Kima curry Mrs Eishenhower said she now regrets not calling it a cookbook for children and their parents A series of anthologies she has edited for the Saturday Evening Post comes out next year Her needlework kits which she designed and which are being marketed by a large needlecraft com pany will be on sale in major department stores in January Does she feel her famous name is an advantage or a trap It works both Mrs Eisenhower said Theres no easy answer to that You have to go on living If your name is known you might as well make the best of it I dont think you can retreat if you think youre doing things legitimately and producing things of quality 1Q5TH YSAR JM0v37T Ford stresses oil issue By STEVEN M EAMES Press Writer MIDLAND Tex President Ford in a setting

states first attempts to delay regulation under the federal Voting Rights Act White said The effect of this ruling is that if we do not appeal then we will have federal attorneys general telling the people of our state where they can have polling places and how they can change precinct lines and effectively take over every political decision made in the State of District Court Judge Gerhard Gesell ruled Friday that the state was not en titled to a hearing before the director of the Census Bureau on two population determinations that would be the first step in bringing Texas under the extended Voting Rights Act Texas officials had argued that the Census figures were not correct The first challenged Census determination was made Tuesday but the Justice Department said the second would not be made until next Thursday That would give the state a chance to block the determination appeal The Texas suit challenged a census finding on the number of Spanishspeaking Americans in Texas coun ties and a determination that fewer than 50 per cent of the states voting age population registered and voted in the November 1972 general election Census Bureau figures showed only per cent participated in that election Briscoe and White had contended that the census had included in its voting age population aliens temporary residents convicted felons who were not entitled to vote and mental incompetents It said that aliens were in cluded in the Spanish speaking population White said in an affidavit the numbers were based on 1970 census figures and projections that included a million aliens and others who are unqualified to vote He said the law very clearly states that citizens of voting age does not include illegal Gesell said that the Voting Rights Act does not require public hearings or detailed evaluation of the voting age population Independent School District will add two new teachers as early as this week to help relieve a squeeze on the number of teachers in

Staff Writer La mar County will spend about for courthouse renovation during 1976 according to its revenue sharing budget County Judge Lester Crutchfield said last week that the county expects to advertise soon for bids for air conditioning and heating units for the fifthfloor county jail area with work hopefully completed before winter sets in NEW AIR conditioning and heating units are now being installed on the courthouses third floor costing some for 14 tons of equipment Similar units have already been installed on the second floor notably in the County Tax Assessor Collectors office and the County Auditors office Reasoning for the move to a central airheat system was a reluctance to install window units after new windows had been installed and problems developing with the old courthouse boiler systems which of ficials decided to bypass The new heating and air system has to be installed in the jail before further renovation and remodeling can be accomplished on the fifth floor In turn renovation and remodeling of the jail has to come first in order to coordinate with renovation and remodeling on the lower floors THE BASEMENT area for the most part has been repainted and both justice of the peace offices have been remodeled The figure may sound like a lot of commissioners have said earlier but when it is scooped out for repairs its In comparison the court accepted a bid to Payne and Howard Co of Dallas for new courthouse windows a price which was about less than original bids had asked The commissioners had asked for new bids hoping to lower the sale price which they did A portion of the expected 1976 total entitlement will be added to another total from the fourth and fifth entitlement periods This total hit a figure by June 1 when the revenue sharing budget was approved by the com missioners court The court has paid some in payments in June and August for architect fees a new framed door for the county clerks office en trance and air conditioning
