(AP) — Under the spreading oaks, under the big benign sky of Texas, a rancher named Lyndon Baines Johnson allowed as how the cattle looked good. "We've had some cold spells that burnt the oats some," he said. "I went horseback riding with my favorite girl this morning and the cattle—well, I don't want to say they never had it so good—but they generally look good." Three days out of the White House, Johnson also allowed as how he'll "certainly" miss power but is not having trouble decompressing. He said he "enjoyed very much" being president and that he is satisfied that his renunciation of another term helped bring North Vietnam to the peace table and helped unify a divided America. About missing power, he said, 'Tin sure any person who has been active as I have for 38 years in public affairs will notice when the roll is catted and his name is not there. But I want to miss It. It hurts good." Johnson and his wife aired their thoughts at a news conference on the broad lawn before their big white frame ranch house, near the plastic bubble covering the swimming pool on the banks of the ~ " River. The words of the former president were those of a relaxed man but his manner, in the view of many veteran Johnson watchers, was not. To them .he appeared taut and his smile was somewhat perfunctory and, as \ 8 .50. always, he still sparred carefully with reporters. Perhaps his most revealing answer was to the question? "Are you a happy man today, Mr. President?" Markets Mt. Vernon Hog Market Until 12:30 p.m. today the prices were down 50c. The top was 19.75 and 20.00 for 1 200 to 220 lb. meat type hogs.

(AP) Bensalem Township patrolman Alfred Bellini, 28, resigned Tuesday night rather than shave off his sideburns. Jive other patrolmen com plied with Police Chief William F.

Last March 31 President Johnson renounced another term in the White House in the hope that this act would help bring Hanoi to, the peace table and help end the divisiveness in the country. He said Wednesday he is satisfied that his withdrawal was effective on both levels. "North Vietnam," he said "might have been hesitant to come to Paris if they thought I was acting for political reasons." Domestically, he said, his renunciation resulted in "less protest from the dissenting groups in the cities than if I were still a candidate." "They lost some of their incentive when they found out I was not expecting them to vote for me. When they understood this, there was less hatred and less bitterness." Mrs. Johnson interposed, "they lost their symbol, their target." Would he ever run again for elective office? Johnson seemed reluctant to close out his options. He said he had no plans along these lines but "no one can say for certain what the future will encompass. The best laid plans of mice and men often come to naught." Returning to the house, Lady Bird Johnson was asked if she was enjoying a sense of liberation. The former First Lady threw out her arms and a big warm smile crossed her face and she said, with an intensity that seemed to come up from her heels: "I'm feeling fine, just fine!" Pause.

Pan Pratter. owner of the Curtis Theater, said he csmo across the old film while cleaning up the projection booth in preparation for « spring opening of the movie house which,is closed during the winter months.

Brokers attributed the continuing advance to a variety of factors. Among them were a sharp increase in auto sales in the | middle 10 days of January and reports of earnings gains by some big corporations. Optimism in Wall Street that the possiblity of real progress being made in the Vietnam peace talks getting under Nway in Paris this weekend also was cited.

(AP) — Nude protographs of a shapely, dark-haired girl were included in several thousand copies of an off-campus student newspaper handed out today to students at the University of Florida. The University Report carried the pictures of the girl, described only as Miss X, posing amid the bookstacks in the Florida history section of the university's $3-milllon research library. In one photo the girl was reading a previous copy of the newspaper which bore the headline: "O'ConneU told me 'Change your ways.'

"We are all conscious of the risks of abrupt and blunt action that could bring unnecessary unemployment. We mean to avoid that," Kennedy said in a statement which bore Nixon's endorsement. "But we are equally concious of the risks of not moving decisively, because inflation is undermining both the foundation of our prosperity at home and our balance of payments posi- tin." Kennedy listed budget control, monetary policy and' the 10 per cent income surtax as among the tools the new administration would use in the effort to stem inflation. But he was less than optimistic about prospects for substantial reduction of the budget President Johnson sent Congress. He said he considers it "a very tight'budget. My own view is that it's going to be very difficult to reduce expenditures substantially." Both Mayo and Kennedy said 1 the ultimate decision will depend on the size of the budget, the expense of the war in Vietnam, and the overall economic situation. Mary Modlin, N.G. Naomi R.

As the first cars pased, the source said, the young man dashed from the crowd 1 and fired the shots. During the subsequent ceremony in the Kremlin Palace of Congresses, television cameras several times showed Berego- voy. He seemed relaxd, and there was no visible evidence of a cut on his neck. During the festivities a messenger handed notes to Yuri An dropov, t chairman of the KGB, the state security committee, and to Leonid I. Brezhnev, general secretary of the Communist party. They were seated, along with other officials and dignitaries, on the stage with the cosmos nauts. Later, while medals were being pinned on the cosmonauts, Andropov handed a note to Brezhnev, who read it with a serious expression. The television commentator made no mention of this. .The source said the police have so far given no information on their investigation of the incident nor the motive for the shooting. It was not clear whether the ! shots were fired indiscriminately or whether they were intended for any of the high offi cials riding in the motorcade. Following the four cosmonauts in their open car was a long line of closed limousines carrying members of their families, other cosmonauts and lead' ing government and Communist party officials. The source said he did not know which car the injured chauffeur was driving. Berego- voy was riding in the second car behind the four cosmonauts being honored. ** | have been wounded. less rifle shells, and 15% tons of food. The latest finds raised to about 700 tons the total of enemy supplies allied troops have seized in the past 26 days. This includes more than one million rounds of machine gun and small arms ammunition. Most of the munitions have been seized between Saigon and the Cambodian border, and some senior U.S. officers think this has been one ,of the chief reasons why the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese haven't launched a new offensive against the South Vietnamese capital this winter. Traveling light on foot through the jungle, the Viet Cong must prepare their approach with stockpiles spaced along the way before they can launch any sizable offensive, Reds Shell By Night The Viet Cong kept up their nightly shelling of bases and provincial capitals while avoid ing large-scale ground fighting. For the second night in a row, enemy gunners shelled Da Nang, South Vietnam's second largest city. Seven 100-pound rockets slammed into the big American air base and the harbor, but no casualties or damage was reported. Troops from the U.S. 11th Light Infantry Brigade maintained a cordon around a village 65 miles south of Da Nang where an enemy force has been holding out for four days. Intense fire from bunkers and zig-zag trenches kept the Americans out of the heart of the village, but a captured enemy soldier said the other troops inside the village were out of food and hungry. The villagers fled some time ago, and U.S. fighter- bombers pounded the village constantly. "I think we'll just play a waiting game and keep the cordon tight," said one U.S, spokesman. He said at least 19 of the enemy and three Americans have been killed and 25 Americans Blue Moon Cafe Looted Wednesday The Blue Moon Cafe, 541 Gtnud, was broken into Wednesday night.
