StAK / Ehrlichman describes as socially aloof Former area resident to graduate from UTSA Paper work will occupy former president •*• .. • •. - *t j — ¥^_k.l : n *. A Krtlrtrtatt By GREGG HERRINGTON Associated ft ess Writer SEATTLE, Wash, (AP) - As President, Richard M. Nixon purposely remained aloof from dozens of middle and lower lev-. el White House staffers and only rarely socialized with his top aides, says John D. Ehrlichman. Only two or three times in the four and one-third years that Ehrlichman was a top aide to Nixon did the Nixons and the Ehrlichmans get together socially, Ehrlichman says. Ehrlichman added in an interview Sunday that Nixon's relationship with his then-chief of staff H.R. Haldeman was about the same: Numerous contacts during the working day but only rare private social get- togethers. "That was not because of a character flaw necessarily, but because of his sense of what the relationship ought to be between the President and his staff," he said. Ehrlichman also said Nixon, who Friday became the first president in U.S. history to resign, purposely had little con- tact'with middle and lower level White House staffers. "We talked about the desir- Low income food prices ability of his just going out and going in and out of offices and saying hello to secretaries and dropping in on staff members," but Nixon rejected the idea, Ehrlichman said. "I thought the decision was a mistake." Ehrlichman said if Nixon had spent time talking with those employes "I think it would have enhanced staff performance." Ehrlichman resigned his White House post as chief domestic affairs adviser to Nixon on April 30, 1973, amidst the then burgeoning Watergate scandal. He said on Sunday that Nixon "surely must be very unhappy" now. "He's had a very personal defeat in Washington in a political sense and he's an individual who doesn't like to lose. "It's been my experience that losing does not put him out of business, so to speak, doesn't down him for long. But certainly I'm sure he is what you would call a bad loser." Ehrlichman said he thinks Nixon, now at home at his San Clemente, Calif., estate, will make a personal comeback and perhaps do some writing and eventually become a senior statesman of some sort. He said he did not think Congress should continue with impeachment proceedings nor should court action be brought against the former president. Mrs. Mary Lee Yates, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O.L. Reaves of McCaskill, will be among the first graduates to be awarded a degree by the new University of Texas at San Antonio. In the University's first commencement ceremonies August 18, Mrs. Yates will receive a MasU. - of Arts degree in education with a con* centration in early childhood and elementary education. She is one of 82 graduate degree candidates. UTSA was created by the Texas Legislature in 1969 and opened in temporary facilities in 1973 with graduate level programs. In the spring, 1974, semester the enrollment was 1,172. UTSA is the largest new university under construction in the U.S. When the first construction phase is completed, 7,000 to 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students can be accommodated. Mrs. Yates was born in McCaskill in 1937 and attended first grade at Hope at the old Brookwood school and McCaskill Elementary. A graduate of Texas Christian University, Mrs. Yates has taught in Florida and Illinois. She and her husband, Major Charles L. Yates, have two sons, Mark, 14 and Jeff, 5. Youth held in stabbing CROSSETT, Ark. (AP) Ashley County Sheriff E. G. Sparks said a 14-year-old Grayson, La., youth was arrested Sunday in connection with the stabbing and robbery of Mrs. Frank Harville, 60, near at a grocery store near here Saturday. Sparks said the youth was being held at the county jail at Hamburg. Authorities said the boy was visiting relatives and had been to the store several times prior to the robbery. When he entered the store Saturday, he allegedly told Mrs. Harville "This is a hold- She was alone in the store at the time of the incident. Sparks said Mrs. Harville was stabbed six times. She was hospitalized in critical condition. He said about $150 was taken during the robbery. Sparks said the boy told authorities Sunday that he stuffed the money taken in the robbery in a soft-drink bottle and threw it in the woods.

(AP) — Massive correspondence and paper work will occupy Richard M. Nixon in coming days, in addition to whatever Watergate turmoil might lie ahead. Three principal assistants are working with Nixon here at his oceanfront retreat in his transition from president to private citizen. In addition, he has met with two close friends. The Presidential Transition Act provides Nixon with staff support for six months. Principal tasks are to handle correspondence remaining from the end of Nixon's presidency and to arrange for movement of his voluminous presidential papers. The assistants also are handling liaison with the new White House staff of President Ford. The three top aides here with Nixon are his former press secretary, Ronald L. Ziegler; former appointments secretary Stephen Bull and military aide Col. Jack Brennan. Several allower ranking assistants from White House days also are here* The staff is working at the office compound formerly calle'd the Western White House, located on a Coast Guard facility adjacent to Nixon's 26-acre estate. Operators at a telephone switchboard, greatly undermanned from previous times, now answer "San Clemente" instead of "Western White House." Under the Former Presidents Act, Nixon is entitled after the six months transition to nearly $100,000 annually for support of an office staff. An aide said this office likely will be quartered at the former Western White House. He also said there definitely will be a presidential library to house Nixon's papers and mementos, although a site has not been determined. The aide, who asked not to be named, said Nixon has been reading and working in his office, where news service tickers still operate. He said the former president will seek far up 20 cents WASHINGTON (AP) - Food costs for low-income families rose 20 cents a week in June while meals designed for richer households went up 10 cents, new government figures showed today. The Agriculture Department said the cost of a "low-cost" food plan for a family of four in June was $44.10 per week, compared with $43.90 in May. A "moderate-cost" menu cost $55.10 a week, compared with $55 in May, and a '"liberal" plan was $66.70 in June, compared with $66.60 in May. The three plans, which allow for larger quantities ofjiigher- cost items such as meat, fresh fruit and vegetables for moderate and liberal menus, each went up 50 cents a week from April to May. In the low-cost plan, a family—including two elementary school children—is allowed more beans, potatoes and grain products. Prices of those have frequently gone up faster than some of the other normally more expensive items. Compared with a year earlier, the June figures showed the low-cost menu was up 17 per cent, or $6.30 per week. The moderate-cost menu was up 13 per cent, or $6.50; the liberal plan rose 12 per cent, or $7. Two sought In killing of Pine Bluff PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) An investigation is continuing into an armed robbery Friday at a liquor store here in w.hich two persons were tolled, a spokesman for the Jefferson County sheriff's department said Sunday. The dead were identified by authorities as L. V. Rogers, 69, owner of L. V. Rogers Package Store at the junction of U.S. 65, South and Arkansas 81 near here, and Tommy Lee Hayes, 37, of Pine Bluff. Hayes apparently was one of the three robbers, according to Johnny Wilson, criminal investigator for the sheriff's department. The other robbers fled the scene with an undetermined amount of cash. A sherriff's department spokesman said no suspects had been apprehended as of Sunday night. Wilson said authorities had no idea how much money was taken in the robbery. "I guess we never will know now that he (Rogers) got killed," Wilson said. Havis Hester, the county coroner, said Hayes and Rogers died of multiple gunshot wounds. The two revolvers left in the store were being examined. The bodies were taken to the University of Arkansas Medical Center at Little Rock for autopsy. ® family center 600 N. HERVEY SQUARE HOPE. ARK.

On Sunday Nixon worked in his office for more than an hour and visited with friends C.G. "Bebe" Rebozo and Robert Abplanalp, aides said. In the afternoon the former President went on a three-hour outing, spending an hour on the beach at Camp Pendleton Marine Base, just south of his residence, then driving with Re- bozo to Red Beach to join Mrs. Nixon and their daughter Tricia and son-in-law Edward Cox. The family returned home in. late afternoon. Earlier Abplanalp and Re- &ozo, interviewed briefly at a nearby restaurant while they lunched, said they had talked several times with Nixon during the weekend. "We are out here as friends to do what we can—that's all," said Abplanalp. "He seemed • fine; he is not upset."
