But it wasn't just a different culture or a different kind ol menu than most had ever had before. It was a totally different way of life. The 23 students learned firsthand what it's like in the predominantly poor Mexican-American section. They lived in the area's homes, worked in com munity action centers, attended city hall sessions and assisted youngsters in after-school educational programs. It was all a part of a new program introduced by Texas Lutheran College, Seguin, Tex., which gave its 700 students a three week "interim semester" to study subjects of interest to them. The project ended Friday. Some of the TLC students remained to take crash courses, others visited art galleries in foreign countries and still others brushed up their Spanish in Mexico. The San Antonio visitors set out to answer the question, •What is it like to be a city man without power?" Half of the students lived with west San Antonio families and said $3 a day for two meals and a place to sleep. The others stayed in dormitory facilities provided by the community cen- ers where they were assigned to work. 1 "I think we've been most sur- >rised by the wonderful, warm quality of family life," Haverlah said of the family he and Park ived with. "I know a lot of fuys at college who would be a ot better off if they'd grown up in this sort of a close family situation." Haverlah said he and others n his group came here "to try and teach these people how to et along bettei—but we are earning more than we can hope o give." Dr. Roy J. Enquist, chairman of the theology and philosophy department at TLC, directed the students in their work at five west side community centers. He called the program a "tremendous success." But there were some draw- >acks, he said. Some of the students came face-to-face with rats in the family's homes. One girl had to drop out because she was allergic to the dust in the homes. 'And one girl was driven to a psychiatrist when she became upset over all the seemingly hopeless problems she encountered, "he said. Funeral Notices MRS. GSSIE P.

On other subjects, Nixon said he was against admission of Red China to the United Nations, favored the nuclear nonproliferation treaty and would consult with advisers next week on liming of Senate action, indicated he was opposed to wage- price guidelines as a means to curb inflation, and promised to propose a "major" legislative program. Nixon also said he favors di •reel talks with the Soviet Union on curbing the output of new missiles on both sides of the iron Curtain. "What I want to do," he said, "is to see to it that we have strategic arms talks in a way and at a time that will promote, if possible, progress on outstanding political problems at the same time."

Also starring in the suspense drama is Robert Vaughn as an aspiring politician. Peter Yates directed, and Phil D'Antoni produced the movie. 'Bullift 1 Whizzes In As Exciting Murder Movie By WANDA ORTON Without the fantastic gadgetry of a Bond or Flint thriller, "Bullitt" quietly whizzes in as ihe most exciting murder movie of the year. Sure, it's just January, but there'll never be another one like it the rest of the year. The winner arrives Wednesday at the Brunson for a seven-day stint. It's already played to packed houses at the Port Theater where it was held over at length and it's still retained in a long holdover at a Houston theater. So, people really like "Bullitt." Why? Steve' "Cool-Eye" McQueen, for one reason. Whiie trying to unravel the killer plot, SJOIANDER - - (Continued From Page 1) two different master's theses have been centered on his poetry. Sjolander was not confined to poetry, however. A rough and rowdy adventure story, "Treasures and Polecats," under the poet's by-line, appeared in the May, 1918, issue of Sports Afield. A specialist in folklore and superstitions of seafarers, Sjolander incorporates these in his "Rhymes of Galveston Bay" which were reprinted in J. Frank Dobie's "Legends of Texas." He busied himself with other varied projects ranging from writing a complete history of Cedar Bayou Masonic Hal! to penning words to a hymn in a church song book and translating Swedish folk tales. Sigman Byrd, writing in the Houston Chronicle in 1958, said that Sjolander "was a better poet than Ed Poe ever hoped to be. His copy has more intelligence, sophistication, imagery, imagination, manliness and music than Poe's rock' roll lyrics. Compared with Sjolander's best, Longfellow's dreary texts and Whit tier's corny verses are downright juvenile." Byrd went on to suggest that someone should publish a new and more complete edition of the works of John Peter Sjolander "and somewhere in this great and allegedly 'iterate city there ought to be a statue of the man at least as large as the one of Sam Houston." English teacher Bennett wrote in December, 1951, in the Texas Outlook: "His works have Robert Burns' gift of song, the simplicity of Wordsworth and the smack and tang of Whitman." T. C. Richardson, in the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, January, 1945, wrote that Sjolander was the "uncrowned poet laureate to a generation, the most widely read, the best beloved of his time. There was a genuineness about him and a deep spiritual response to his Texas environment. He was a man whose roots run deep into the Texas soil. "His monument, rising from its base of Texas pastoral literature, should grow." Want to Buy? Sun Classified you are at the same time trying to figure out this guy. The police detective lieutenant, as played by McQueen, dips deeply into blood and gore without batting an ice blue eye. The cop's girlfriend (Jacqueline BisseU is worried about this, too. She accuses him of becoming callous because of his constant contact with the underworld. He tries to explain that this is where most of the world'is — in the sewer. Robert Vaughn is magnificent as a Machiavellian politician, using killers and the killed to promote his own career as a Senate investigator. McQueen doesn't like him one bit and finally tells him so in language he learned in the sewer. A car chase between McQueen and two hired killers will make a dizzy, heart-pounding victim of the most tranquil movie watcher. They zoom up and down and around San Francisco hills; they devastate an entire highway system; they finally come to fiery conclusion. Noon Slock Quotes CONSULTANT - - (Continued Fran faf« 1) separate from mail pertaining to the employment 01 a new superintendent. Lippman reported that his committee, which also includes Trustees Bob Wahrmund and Philip Dignam, will develop an application form and asked that other board members submit suggestions regarding the development of the form to the committee by Feb. 1. The committee, he said, also favors the preparation of a brochure announcing the vacancy and describing the school district and the community of Baytown. Lippman said the board should soon establish a salary range for the new superintendent. He said the national average salary for a superintendent of a school district approximately the size of Bay town's is $21,682 based upon a 1967-68 survey. Lippman said the committee feels that a maximum age of 55 should be established ("we would like to have his services at least 10 years") and that no minimum age be indicated. He said the committee also recommends that the new superintendent should have a doctor's degree or be past the mid-point of a plan toward a doctorate. The committee feels that a three-year contract should be offered to the individual finally se- elected, Lippman reported. He also wanted to know if the entire board desires to review all applications or if it wanted the committee to screen applicants. Mrs. Karl W. Opryshek, board president, said she felt the board should review all applicants. Trustee Troy Peterson commented that he felt the board should emphasize performance as much as educational achievements of the candidates. Lippman also reminded the board that it must spend some money for travel expenses of board members who go to interview applicants or and probably to pay travel expenses for interviewees to come to Baytown. Your TV TeleScope By CYNTHIA LOWKY AP ltlevfei.w-.Udi* Writer NKW YORK (AP) — Richard M. Nixon presided over his first news conference as President Monday morning, a televised event that occupied precisely 30 minutes in which he handled a wide assortment of questions fluently and smoothly. The President chose to present himself in a formal, al- Tiost stark situation—standing DC fore a microphone and with two flags behind him. At the outset, responding to the initial questions about his proposed legislative program and the Vietnam talks, Mr. Nix on seemed on the tense side, his hands behind his back or clasped in front. But as the session went on, he eased up considerably. By the time he was answering a question about his position on the nuclear nonproliferation treaty, he was beginning to make gestures as he talked. When he reached crime in the District of Columbia, he even essayed a small joke about a woman columnist. I^L saonces Starting Wednesday For One Week 'BULLITT' Detective It. frank other kind of cop.

Ramsey also reminded trustees that selection of tax board members was "a matter of extreme importance" and that in 1966 he had written "an exhaustive opinion on the relation between the board of trustees and the board of equalization.' During the discussion, Dignam moved to table the motion to name the tax equalization board until the board's next meeting so he could read Ramsey's opinion and because ol the proposed secret ballot. His motion was voted down, 3-2, with Lippman abstaining and Mrs. Opryshek not voting. GreenweU made the first motion to name Roper, McElhannon and Storck to the board. In proposing the secret ballot, Wahrmund said he would "like this position to be as free ol politics as possible." Mrs. Opryshek, Tuesday morning, gave a statement to The Baytown Sun, saying she regretted the board did not have a discussion Monday night on the reasons for individual trustees' support of particular candidates for the tax board. She said she had nominated Slorck and had supported him in the voting because she felt he would be particularly well qualified in appraising and assessing values on homes and small businesses. "I felt if we could have an individual cognizant of home values it would be worthwhile," she said. Mrs. Opryshek said 20,000 of the 24,000 items on the school district tax roll are private homes and that another 1,500 items are small businesses. She said she felt that the tax equalization board already has expert help in industrial valuations through the school district's industrial Lax consultant firm of Thomas Y. PicketL "1 feel we now have an imbalance on the board," she said. Jack Webb strung out one of his patented "Dragnet" stories to two hours in length to make an NBC "World Premiere" feature Monday night, and although the program was made a couple of years ago, the final scenes by coincidence looked as if they had been shot on location last week. The story basically concerned a manhunt by Sergeant Friday and his partner for a photographer believed to have kidnaped and murdered four pretty young models. Along the way there were opportunities for the colorful character bits and there was one subplot in which the intrepid team served the murder of a jewelry salesman. In spite of being four times as long as the series, it was nevertheless standard "Dragnet" most Interesting aspect was the climax—the capture of the models' murderer in a torrential rain storm in the Hollywood hills. ABC skipped its early evening news program Monday night to carry the Bing Crosby golf tournament to a point where it was certain that George Archer was the winner—two hours covering the final play.
