But Rockefeller, Goldwaler's narrowly defeated rival in the California balloting for 86 cru- cial GOP .National Convention voles, made it clear he is not hatting his drive for the Repub- lican presidential nomination.

"It isn't just our view, but the opinion of a number of other lawyers as well (lhat the property can be sold lo the Williams said. In addition to her concern as to the legality of the sale, Mrs. Martin said she is opposed lo the sale "because it (the land) is a part of our heritage and I Ihink it should be kepi." The councilwoman said she is not sure "just what sland 1 will take" eventually regarding the sale, and declined to elabo- rate further. County Commissioners Court has offered the'city fa- me half-block on the north side of courthouse square which now houses the city jaii and Central Fire Station, but is understood to have agreed verbally that the fire station would not have to be moved for at least 20 years. The city, reportedly, wants this commitment in writ- ing regarding the fire station. Commissioners say they need the space where the jail is lo- cated, corner of Forrest and Bridge streets, to build a new county office and courts build- ing. The land has been appraised at the figure which the county has offered, but city officials earlier have said that Ihe purchase price will not begin to cover the tost of re- placing the jail and fire station facilities.
