Jack Brooks found himself on the losing side of two bills which did not make it through Congress last week, but he came out with the winners on one bill regulating aircraft noise. The two Texas senators voted for a bill which would limit the salaries of executives of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPS), National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service. The bill was defeated by a vote of 33 to 48. Sen. Lloyd Bensten voted with the winners against a bill which would have brought more frequent congressional review of CPS budget requests. Sen. John Tower did not vote. Brooks voted for an amendment which would have removed the limit on House members' outside income, scheduled to take effect in January.

Just dial Carter Urged To Cut Hearst Term WASHINGTON (UPI) Two members of Congress from California Monday initiated an appeal for President Carter to commute Patricia Hearst's seven-year sentence for bank robbery to time already served. Sen. S.I. Hayakawa, R.- Calif., and Rep. Leo J. Ryan, D-Calif., presented a formal petition to Justice Department pardon attorney John Stanish, along with supporting documents and a letter from the newspaper heiress' attorney, George Martinez. Stanish said it may take him 45 to 60 days, or even "many, many months," to review voluminous records in the case and recommend whether the petition should be submitted to the president. Miss Hearst, 24, was convicted of joining members of the Sym- bionese Liberation Army — the terrorist group that kidnapped her in February 1974 — in the 1975 armed robbery of a branch of the Hibernia Bank in San Francisco. She was sent to prison April 12, 1976, released under appeal bond the following Nov. 19, then returned to custody last May 15, after exhausting her final appeal at the Supreme Court. She is confined to a federal corrections institution in California, and will be eligible for parole next July. Without parole or a presidential commutation, but with credit for good behavior, she would have to serve until May8,1982. Martinez, in his 39-page letter urging clemency for his client, said "there has, in substance, been a miscarriage of justice" due to misinterpretation of "bizarre facts and circumstances" confronting Miss Hearst after her )b- duction. "Responsibility for the butal kidnapping and heinous torture of Patricia, then a 19-year-old school girl, must in all logic be shared by the same government that now continues her imprisonment," Martinez said. "The continued incarceration of Patricia Hearst simply emphasizes the failure of our system of L justice to protect one of its citizens." Stanish said he will take the lawyer's arguments under consideration. the operator and ask for Enterprise No. 70445. That is their toll free number. I am 14 years old and I want to babysit.

I would like to know why I have been denied Corps of Engineers permission to use a back hoe or even a shovel to remove this sandbar, and yet they have given George Mitchell a permit to dig canals for a whole new subdivision. — W.B. Sorry, but we really don't have an answer for you, W. B. We are reminded of a bible verse which says "the Lord works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform" and that apparently applies to the Corps oi Engineers. Incidentally, that subdivision permit is the subject of a lawsuit against the Corps of Engineers, which has been reported in The News. You might watch for future developments.

Under the bill, a House member cannot earn in supplemental income more than 15 percent of his congressional pay, or $8,625. That limit includes a salary, fee or honorarium, but does not include interest, stock and bond dividends and income from a family business to which the member devotes little time. Seven Texas representatives voted for the amendment, 14 voted against it and three did not vote. The Beaumont congressmen also voted for an amendment to allow unrestricted contact between former high-ranking executive branch officials and the government agency for which they formerly worked. The amendment sought to kill part of the new ethics bill prohibiting "revolving door" contacts for one year after the official has left his federal job. The bill was defeated by a vote of 112 to 259, with Brooks one of 13 voting for it. Six others voted against it, while five Texas congressmen did not vote. Officials estimate that domestic carriers would receive $3 billion, going for noise abatement, while foreign airlines would gel almost $1 billion. The airlines have until 1985 to comply with federal noise standards. Eight Texas congressmen voted against the bill. Two did not vote. BOOOOOBBOOC GULF ELECTRIC OF GALVBTON, INC.
