Leona Lawson is one of doz-ns of Oklahoma City residents saddened and angry at the sale of the Avalon Pet cemetery. The new owner says persons with pets buried there will have uiv-til July to move the remains at their own expense.
Walter E. Hume sold the cemetery to Bill Higginbotham, who said he has no intention of operating a pet cemetery. Higginbotham said he wanted the land ‘to go with some more land I’m putting together-’ alongside an expressway.
Hume said: “I never made my promises except that we planned to operate it only as a pct cemetery as long as we owned the property.
“I haven’t misled anyone. It continued to be a pet cemetery as long as I had the property and what happens now is not my problem ...”
The cemetery is only about 200 by 150 feet in size but is part of a six-acre tract Hume sold to Higginbotham. It is located in a mainly residential area in the southeast section of the city.

An effort by some key Reagan supporters to draft Health. Education and Welfare Secretary Caspar Weinberger has failed.
And. it now appears that former presidential counselor Robert Finch. 48, will not run for governor either.
While Finch has never been implicated in Watergate in any fashion, sources close to him consider his long-time association with President Nixon a handicap. Finch also is concerned that the nation's economic problems will rub off on Republicans as an issue during 1974.
Reagan says he has been neutral in the intraparty scramble for his job. So have most of his supporters and advisers, he says.
But several important Republicans closely identified with Reagan have made no secret of their apprehension about Reinecke’s prospects of winning in 1974 even though he once was considered the unofficial GOF heir apparent to Reagan.
The main concern now is where an investigation of the International Telephone and Telegraph Co. scandal might lead. Reinecke and former Atty. Gen.

The overweight, Half said, are unfairly stereotyped as slow, sloppy, inefficient and overindulgent. When important, high-paying jobs are at stake and candidates are under close scrutiny, the overweight are less likely to be hired or promoted into them, he said.
Half, who is 5-10 and weighs 1150 pounds, said his agencies frequently are asked specifically for slim job candidates, but remembers only one company in 25 years that wanted a plump executive. The company was a maker of outsize apparel.
