'PAGE 10 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N IB J Ranch VM Isold; widow gets house -AUSTIN, Tex. (UPI) - Former President Lyndon B. Johnson agreed to sell most of bis Texas ranch to an Oklahoma land .firm before he died, but the deal does not include the ranch house, Johnson's birthplace or the'family cemetery. ; The sale was disclosed when the will of the" 36Uj president was filed in' court yesterday. Most of the.Johnson fortune, estimated at ?20 million, went to his widow, Lady Bird, and her two daughters. Mrs. Johnson will live in the ranch' house and maintain a lifetime interest in the 201 acres surrounding it, .which ; Johnson previously deeded to the National Park Service. But the other 3,444 acres goes to Frates Properties Inc., Tulsa, for, an undisclosed amount J Owner Rex D. Frates said lie will .announce plans for the land soon, but promised he would n o t ruin i t . · . . . · : · · "All aspects of the development will be ;under the direct supervision' of an architectural control committee and will reflect the wishes of the late former president," he said. "We have bought this unique,' historical property with one.thought uppermost -r to. preserve the heritage and beauty of the area." : The hill country property southwest of Austin is laced with cedar, live oak, Spanish . oak and pecan trees, and about 70 per cent of Johnson's . land was cleared of underbrush and used for exotic game and registered cattle. . Johnson also left gifts ranging from $3,000 to $25,000 to 18 relatives and longtime friends. He willed $25,000 to-Dale and Jewell Malecheck, the LBJ Ranch foreman and his wife. ' Johnsdn willed $10,000 to his sister, Lucia Alexander; $5,000 to another sister, Rebekah Bobbitt; and §5,000 to his .brother, Sam Houston Johnson. Gifts of $3,800 each went to . Yoland Boozer, James Davis, Mary -Davis, Marie Fehmer, Ashton Gonella, Dorothy Nichols. Mary Rather, Juanita Roberts, Mildren Segall, Mary Margaret Valenti, Koo Voo i. Wong and Zepher Wright. The will divided part of the family estate into two trusts for the two Johnson daughters, Lynda Robb, 28, and Luci Nugent, 25. They can collect the cash at age 30. Should the daughters not survive to collect, the trusts would go to the Johnson City Foundation. Firm's use of lie tests under fire SAN FRANCISCO (AP) T^he McDonald's hamburger chain has been asked to stop coercing its employes to take lie detector tests, the State Division of Labor Law enforcement says.

Suit filed ty-..worker, for injuries An $850,000 civil suit has- been . filed in ,U.S. District ·Court by a copper worker injured in a smelter accident at Ajo last "year that took the life of another worker. . . , Frank M.

Ernest Fitzgerald. Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegier said Nixon "simply misspoke himself" at a press conference Wednesday when he said the Fitzgerald dis- Officer says van carried big pot haul An 18-year-old Tempe youth who flagged down "a highway patrolman north of'Tucson to help him locate a mechanical, "problem with his rented van soon learned he had another problem: The patrolman found more than 900 pounds of what appeared to be marijuana in the van. Lawrence Williams Jr. stopped the patrolman at 10:10 p.m. Tuesday on Interstate 10. The patrolman said he de- tected'a marijuana odor in the van and investigated. . Williams, a varsity basketball player' for Scottsdale Community College, was ar- rangned yesterday before Justice of the Peace Eleanor Schorr oh charges of possession and transportation of marijuana. He was freed on $2,000 bond. · missal "was a decision that was submitted to me. I made it, and I stick by it." Ziegler said Nixon told him he was "mistaken in his reference to Mr. Fitzgerald." Fitzgerald's job was eliminated in 1969 after the told Congress of huge cost overruns in an Air Force contract with Lockheed to build the C5A transport plane. Ziegler said a search of records turned up no indication "of the matter ever being brought before the President for his decision." Ziegler said he did not know if Nixon was referring to some other case involving the firing of a civilian government em- ploye, ' At his news conference Nixon said, "I was totally aware that Mr. Fitzgerald would be fired, or discharged or asked to resign. I approved it, and Mr. (Air Force Secretary Robert-C.) Seamans must have been talking to someone who had discussed the matter with me." ' The Air Force, which contends Fitzgerald was not fired, said his job was abolished as an economy measure. SAVE ON PICTURE FRAMES AT TUCSON'S ONLY . . . DO-IT-YOURSELF STORES!
