John Jay Hubbard must know it’s true. Two weeks ago, Hubbard, 39, resigned as city clerk in a clash with the mayor over the firing of an employe in the clerk’s office. The mayor blocked the resignation by keeping the matter off the city council’s agenda “He does carry a big stick," said Hubbard of the mayor who also happens to be his father, Orville. “Sometimes that's hard to swallow.” But he added, “I think we've had a requiem W'e have new respect for each other.” Need a compact, economv car!?

MEXICO CITY (AP) - After five decades of roller coaster relations with Mexico, the Russians have opened a commercial exhibition here, complete with huge red tractors, Soviet-built ears and crew-cut specialists with thin ties. President Luis Echevema inaugurated the exhibit, celebrating 50 years of Soviet-Mexican ties. and left with a handful of promises and an agreement to have I .OOO Soviet-designed tractors tilling Aztec soil within a couple of years. None of the officials at the exhibit recalled the expulsion of five Soviet diplomats in 1971 in connection with guerilla activities in the country The expulsion was the worst crisis between the two nations since relations were broken in 1930 by President Emilio Fortes Gil, who claimed there were spies in the Soviet embassy. The air apparently has finally cleared. A Spaniard named Carmen, who lives in Russia, guides visitors through the intricate problem of consumer marketing in the Sov iet Union “Almost everyone has a televion,” she explained “As a matter of fact, the prices have been slashed in recent months to further expand the market,” She draws a picture of sun-ftiled days, happy children and Communist achievements. Everything at the exhibit shines. The tar doors shut tight. Spectators are dwarfed by huge industrial machinery Cameras and microscopes are sealed in glass cases. In the center is a replica of the Lunakhov lunar transmission station “We don’t need men on the mooon,” a Soviet official says. “Our achievements are in machine technology.” On nearly every horizontal surface are stalks of literature. slick magazines and leaflets. One official. weaving through thi* displays, said, “Our purpose is not to exploit That’s why we don’t have factories here. We offer excellent terms at very low interest to help developing countries ” DRIVE SAFELY !
