I have heard that there is a request to rezone to Industrial an area along Eastchester drive near Countryside drive. As a resident of this general area i think it would be terrible to allow Industry to develop along the Only Beautiful approach to our City and so near Oak hollow Lake which is far More suitable for residential growth. Could you Tell me exactly what Section is being considered for this rezoning what uses would be permitted and what we can do to keep it As an area for Homes anon. A.

The tract is on the North Side of Eastchester drive at the Point where Lassiter intersects. It covers 325 feet on Eastchester and 150 feet on Countryside running in an irregular line at the Back.

I i tinting publication of the Koala Lowa i Ergo re la itt offers $400,000 in Cash services at time of suit the of a Ternate Saga continues to unfold but for one of the participants a Jeb Stuart Magruder a the Story Hun been told. Today he is in prison for crimes he com netted and helped tithers to commit. This series of seven articles is his version of what happened and u by excerpted from Quot in american life one Man s Road to in Ternate. A it is reprinted by permission of athenaeum publishers by Jeb Stuart Magruder North american newspaper Alliance we set up the committee to re elect in the Spring of 1971. At the White House we had often talked about Long Range planning but we rarely did it a we were almost entirely crisis oriented. The most exciting thing about our work at cup was that we did plan ahead and As the months went by we saw our plans transformed into what we believed would be one of the Best organized most scientific presidential campaigns in history. At the top of the cup apparatus its unofficial but very real Boss was attorney general John Mitchell. I reported All major issues and decisions directly to Mitchell but it was also necessary to keep Haldeman involved. I reported to Haldeman through Gordon Strachan who had become Haldeman s assistant for political matters. My first important Job at cup was to Divide the Campaign into planning task forces which included advertising youth polling candidate support research the convention direct mail Media minorities administration and so on. My three initial assistants Rob Odle Bob Marik and Bart Porter each served As project manager for several of these task forces and i headed the initial planning for one advertising. The cup operated independently of the Republican party and this sometimes created problems. The Republican National committee consists of party leaders from every state. It has a paid staff in Washington and a National chairman who is in theory selected by the National committee members but who. When a Republican occupies the White House must be the president s Man. Sen. Robert Dole was a hard hitting outspoken conservative quite Able and willing to take on democratic chairman Larry of Brien the Senate doves and others of our critics but even Dole was not always harsh enough to satisfy some of the White House hardliners in particular Chuck Colson. The first major decision in our planning for the 1972 Republican National convention was where it should be located and a controversy soon developed that caught Bob Dole Between his one Man presidential con Titu Tency and his official constituency of the Republican National committee. The National committee had appointed a site selection committee whose members were examining the merits of several cities that were interested in playing Host to our convention including Houston. Miami Beach Louisville and Chicago. However the president one Day informed Haldeman that he wanted the convention in san Diego. Bill Timmons of the w Hite House congressional relations staff was in charge of convention planning Timmons a tennessean had worked on the 1968 convention and was considered politically astute. When he got word from Haldeman that the president wanted the convention in san Diego Timmons went out to Check the facilities. He reported Back that the hotel and Arena facilities were adequate but just barely and that Security might be a problem. However he indicated if the president insisted a convention could be held in san Diego. Our convention site deliberations were taking place at the same time that the Justice department was moving Tow Ard its controversial july 1971 settlement of antitrust suits against the International Telephone and Telegraph company. Timmons told us that itt had offered $400,000 in Cash service and discounts to the Republican party if we used the new Sheraton hotel in san Diego owned by one of itts subsidiaries As Nixon convention Headquarters. I took that As a not unusual Public relations gesture a presumably the presence of the president and party leaders in the new hotel for a week would be Worth $400,000 in publicity. It was Only later that Tim Sitt on 5 a Ehrlichman quoted Nixon As saying later in mid july 1971. Quot you get Back onto Domestic policy matters and leave Usberg and the Pentagon papers stuff to the Man i that Man was Egil Bud Krogh who frequently reported directly to the president on the investigation into Ellsberg a motives and associates Ehrlichman said. Ehrlichman until last april 30 among the closest of Nixon s inner Circle said the president was fearful that Usberg had not acted alone and that there May be More leaks coming in the summer of 1971. Of the plumbers files which Young said he reviewed with Ehrlichman Ehrlichman testified he remembered a Busy schedule after the files were delivered March 21 or 22, 1973. A i remember saying i m not going to get to this. In a leaving town for several Days. In a sure i caused them to be sent Back a he testified. Ehrlichman said the files were sent Back to Youngs office
