She and her husband had been jogging since he was in medical school. She turned in a time of 2 hours and 5 minutes for the half-marathon and said it was five minutes better than the goal she had set for herself. She received applause and cheers along the entire 13-mile route. "I was really fired up. I had the adrenalin pumping," she said. The baby will be the couple's second. sey said "Baby" and there was little doubt about the big arrow pointing downward at a tell-tale bulge. "Are you really pregnant?" asked one incredulous spectator at Saturday's White Rock Marathon. "Seem to be," said Mary Jones. Mrs. Jones, 32, whose baby is due in three weeks, participated only in the 13-mile half-marathon, but finished third in the women's 30-39 age group. "It felt great. I'm ready to run again," she said.

"We're trying to decide how to word the pardon," Carter said as he chatted with reporters after leaving services at the Plains Baptist Church. Carter was asked about reports one of his principal advisers, Atlanta attorney Charles Kirbo, is considering requests that other categories of offenses be included in the pardon. "I don't know yet," he said. "It's going to be done the first week I'm in office but the different categories of violators is something that we're assessing." Carter taught the men's Bible class for the first time since his election and said he hopes to continue teaching on occasion after he joins a Baptist church near the White House. "I really like to teach," he said. "But it's getting to be such a news event that it's difficult." Carter's lesson was the first in a three-month study of the Bible's accounts of Christmas. Hamilton Jordan, Carter's chief personnel recruiter, confirmed that John Doar is one of several candidates under consideration for attorney general and that Rep. Robert Bergland (D-Minn) is on a list of possible agriculture secretaries. Doar, who headed the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment staff and headed the Justice Department civil rights division under the Johnson administration, is practicing law with the New York firm of Donovan, Leisure, Newton and Irvine. His daughter, Gael, 25, joined the Carter campaign in August and is a secretary to one of Carter's top aides, Greg Schneiders. During his election campaign, Carter limited his promise of pardon to those who fled the country to escape the draft. He did not include among those eligible for general padon the many military deserters or servicemen who received less than honorable discharges for anti-war activities. Those, he said, would be dealt with on an individual basis. Some groups have criticized Carter's campaign proposals, saying they aid mostly the white upper and middle classes, who had the financial option of escaping the country rather than being drafted. Billy Has Two Votes For Sure PLAINS, Ga. (UPI) - Billy Carter, challenging an incumbent just as his brother did, faces A.L. Blanton today in an election for mayor of Plains. "I've only got two assured votes so far," Biily said at a chicken barbecue rally he threw Saturday among worn out tires and inner tubes behind his filling station. "My wife says she's uncommitted. My campaign manager says he's uncommitted. So I just have Jimmy's and my votes." It was vintage Billy Carter a continuation of his daily banter with the other "good ole boys" in Plains, where he already reigns supreme. Far more than his brother, Billy symbolizes the little town of Plains. Invariably wearing blue jeans and boots, a T-shirt or sweater carefully molded around his ample stomach, a cigar in one hand and a bottle of beer in the other, Billy's presence is ubiquitous. He talks to farmers in his tiny office at the Carter peanut warehouse at the east end of Main Street. He spins tales at his filling station, where a charred hole remains from a mid-summer explosion. He scoots around town in his blue and white panel truck. He whips over to Amer-icus, the county seat, for lunch. How many packs of cigarettes does he smoke each day? "Five, six, seven, depending on the day," he says. Billy's beer drinking, and the fact that he sells beer at his filling station, in all likelihood will result in his losing much of the sizeable Baptist vote. Ins 'Grapes Outs 'Raisins' WASHINGTON (AP) - Presidentelect Carter's staff working on transition problems has been organized into "clusters" for each department or agency. This terminology promptly has led to cluster leaders being termed "chief grape" and their associates "grapes." And, at least in some quarters, the outgoing Ford workers are being referred to as "raises." white, navy, light blue. 11.00 C. BOYS 8-20.
