Sunday, July 13. Presidency Pleasure, Pressure f £ ttpttJLAS B. . WASHINGTON (AP) - For Richard M. Nixon the presidency is § pleasure — and a prize fte wants to keep as long as he cafi. Eight years. Vet almost unceasingly the decisions and problems press dowft upon the man-war in Vietnam, tantalizingly slow peace talks at Paris, and af home, crime and violence and rocketing prices. The pressure can build up. Any day can be and usually is crowded and long, filled by conferences with staff and Cabinet members, members of Congress, the Natioal Security or Urban Affairs Councils, a swearing in ceremony for an appointee, a discussion with a diplomat or a visitng chief of state. Or the President may meet with labor leaders, or businessmen, or a delegation from the poor. Or launch an Easter seal campaign, or great a lovely lass who is queen of something or other, or fly to Norfolk. Va., to crown his own daughter, Tricia, queen of an azalea festival. Two or three short speeches may break into the day, and now and then a longer one. So the hours stretch on, from 7 o r 7:30 in the morning until midnight or 1 a.m. or later. Nevertheless, the President • assured White House correspondents at their annual dinner last month that the presidency had "not yet become for me that great, awesome burden that some had described." i His manner with visitors bear that out. He likes his job. He has a pleasant way with people. He almost never misses with a warm word, a broad smile and ! a handclasp, and a flattering re- } collection of a shared moment or ' event. Someone he never has seen before gets about the same treatment as someone he has known for years — a clap on arm or shoulder and word, perhaps, that "I like that jacket." ; No Temper Whereas Lyndon B. Johnson was known to unleash some rather sulphurous language on ; occasion at those around him, one assistant who sees Presi-; dent Nixon daily insists he never has seen any evidence of a flaring temper or heard Nixon < chew anyone out. \ "He gets what he wants out of: his staff by his and their dedica- \ tion," the aide said. "You know | what he expects of you. He is a warm man, but he is not a president who constantly pats you on the back. He lets you know subtly when he appreciateds something. You also know it when you bobble. j In letting you know what he has in mind he can be very direct: "I want this done in this ] way." j During the tension-packed days crowded in behind the • shooting down of a U.S. naval reconnaissance plane by the North Koreans—when no one knew with any certainty whether the next hour might bring an other war—Nixon, said another assistant, calmly set up his dai- j ly schedule as usual, and foJ-' lowed it. For a man who goes through such pressure, it helps to have | escape hatches and a bit of time j to use them.

"Sure," On June 11, i§64, DuBay, then the obscure pastor of s predominantly Negro parish in the Los ( Angeles suburb of compton,! called a news conference and distributed copies of his letter charging his archbishop with "gross malfeasance in office." DuBay wrote the Pope that the Cardinal "has failed to exercise moral leadership among the White Catholics of this diocese on racial discrimination," and "has conducted a vicious program of intimidation and repression against priests, seminarians and the laity who have tried to reach the consciences of white Catholics in his archdiocese." As DuBay supporters picketed the chancery office, the Tidings, i official weekly organ of the' archdiocese, noted that Cardinal Mclntyre, along with other U.S. bishops, had signed three statements arguing equal rights for Negroes. He had had priests read from pulpits a Tidings editorial saying: "... the members of every race are ... our brothers ... On that high level we must meet and greet them." DuBay, headlined as "Rebel Priest," was suspended from administrative duties, then assigned to a mostly white parish in Anaheim. Next he was transferred for a year to St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica as chaplain.

She and Wall are contending in the courts for the children's custody. She came tO'Palm Springs "to work for a Seattle-based hotel chain but ended up peeling carrots and washing dishes."
