The Beacon Journal A17 f th i (, b n .. 1. 1 7 ta re voiea most livajoie AuociM Pmt When the U.S. Conference of Mayors honored San Antonio, Texas, as the nation's most livable big city and Santa Fe, N.M., the best small one, gleeful officials in both places stood and cheered. "We snuck right in there and grabbed the award away from them," crowed Santa Fe Mayor Sam Pick after his city beat out stiff competition Monday in the under-100,000 category. The runner-up was New Rochelle, N.Y. "The award doesn't surprise me," said Alex Briseno, San Antonio's acting city manager, after the city was chosen best among cities over 100,000. "San Antonio is a livable place." Philadelphia was second among the larger cities. Judges at the conference in Nashville, Tenn., cited San Antonio Mayor Henry G. Cisneros for leadership in creating the city's Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee and adopting a historic landmarks district ordinance. "We are the center of South Texas. There is something here for everybody," said Nick Milanovich, vice president of the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. San Antonio is Texas' third-largest city, with a population of 900,000. Fifty-two percent of the population is Hispanic and 8 percent is black. The city was established by the Spanish in 1718, and several Spanish missions remain near the San Antonio River. It is home to the Alamo, where Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie died battling Mexico for Texan independence. More than 10 million people visit each year, said Frances Schultschik of the city's visitors' and convention bureau. Many have returned to live there, she said. "San Antonio is perceived as being a sleepy little town and has not received very much recognition," Briseno said. "Now, we feel we will be able to be noticed as a wonderful place to visit and to stay." Santa Fe's mayor agreed that the honor will boost the image of this city of 52,000. "One day, someone will just have to say 'Santa Fe,' and listeners will know it's the capital of New Mexico and in the United States," Pick said, alluding to New Mexico's misfortune of sometimes being mistaken as a foreign country. Pick was recognized for strong efforts in instituting the city's One Percent for the Arts Ordinance to provide money for installing public art works. "I'm not surprised," said Chamber of Commerce president John Egan. "I always knew Santa Fe was the most livable city in the country. In Santa Fe, people are genuinely friendly." Santa Fe was established by the Spanish in 1610. Its historic name is La Villa Real de la Santa Fe de San Francisco de Asis the Royal Town of the Holy Faith of St. Francis of Assisi. The city is a multicultural community, with Hispanics making up about half the population and American Indians accounting for about 2 percent. It is located at 7,000 feet in the western foothills of the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) Mountains, a range whose 12,000-foot peaks dominate the eastern horizon. Santa Fe is noted for its unique Spanish-Pueblo architecture, which has been preserved by strict zoning codes that prohibit other styles within designated historic districts. The City Livability Awards are co-sponsored by the mayors conference, representing 800 cities of 30,000 or more population, and Philip Morris Cos. Inc.

The meeting will be the second allowed with Rust since he landed a rented single-engine Cessna in front of St. Basil's Cathedral, near the Kremlin, on May 28. West German Embassy officials met with him June 1 at Moscow's Lefortovo prison, where the teen-age member of a Hamburg flying club is held. Karl-Heinz and Monika Rust arrived by air Monday afternoon, embassy spokesman Ul-rich Brandenburg said. He said they would see their son today, but he would not reveal where. Brandenburg said an embassy representative would accompany Rust's parents. The flight to Moscow caused a shake-up of the Soviet military, including the retirement of Defense Minister Sergei Soko-lov. Soviet officials have not announced formal charges against Rust, saying only that an investigation is continuing. Prices Good Thru June 20, 1987 55 MAKKjcjT & Drive-Thru THE MEATING PLACE 3102 S.

Congress violated the Constitution in a "power grab" when it told governors they couldn't halt National Guard training missions in Central America, an attorney for Minnesota argued Monday. "This is really more an attempt to take complete charge of the Guard" to quiet dissent to federal policies, Jack Tunheim, chief deputy attorney general, told U.S. District Judge Donald Alsop. Alsop took under advisement arguments by Tunheim and U.S. Justice Department attorney Vincent Garvey regarding Minnesota's challenge to the so-called Montgomery Amendment, which has been joined by 10 other states, including Ohio. Garvey said Congress was exercising its constitutional authority over the National Guard component of the nation's armed forces when it revoked governors' veto power over foreign National Guard assignments. "Congress had the power to create that component and, once it did, it has authority to regulate it," he said. Minnesota's lawsuit contends the amendment sponsored by Rep. G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery, D-Miss., to a bill signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Nov. 14, unconstitutionally infringes on the right of states to control their militias. The amendment provides that governors may withhold consent for foreign Guard assignments only when the units are needed for local emergencies. Governors had withheld consent for Central This is really mora an attempt to take complete charge of the Guard. I Jack Tunheim attorney American Guard missions before Congress acted. Minnesota has asked for an injunction barring enforcement of the statute. Joining Minnesota's challenge along with Ohio are Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont. India, China agree on border policy Associated Press BEIJING, China Indian Foreign Minister Narain Dutt Ti-wari and Chinese officials agreed Monday that Asia's two most populous nations should avoid conflicts on their disputed border, China's official news agency reported today. The Xinhua agency also said the two sides agreed they should try to improve relations in other areas . Tiwari, who arrived Sunday after a trip to the Soviet Union and North Korea, met with Vice Premier Wan Li and Vice Foreign Minister Liu Shuqing.
