The city was established by the Spanish In the 1700s and is today one of the nation's most picturesque cities, with modern skyscrapers, Spanish flavor and many parks and plazas. Kemper Diehl is a reporter for the San Antonio News. By KEMPER DIEHL SAN ANTONIO — San An- tonianis are finding that the sheer problems of staying alive in a period of raging in- tPMion and sudden energy shortages can be just as numbing as the shock of the Watergate scandal. Sixth in a Series The residents of this city in the heart of the petroleum- rich Texas were stunned last month when they learned itiheir natural gas deliveries had been cut by itMwthirds and Ithalt their city-owned utility system had scarcely a week's supply of emergency fuel for power generation. Suddenly the InngHpredicted energy crisis was real in this most improbable of places. Newspapers blossomed with appeals lor energy conservation. Businesses doused their neon signs. Air-conditioning thermostats were raised to 80 degrees and residents sweltered. Oas-sfokwlt industries began lay-offs. "THOSE GUYS being laid off don't give a hoot about Watergate" commented one politician. - But though the energy crisis pushed Watergate temporarily off ithe ifronlt pages here, it reinforced the disenchantment with government that has been typified by reaction to the White House scandal. Like other deeply frustrating problems plaguing San Antonians, itiheir gas shortage has roots deep in politics, and the typical citizen feels that he will now be forced to pay for the mistakes of others. Texas voters can react impressively to scandal. They cleaned house in Austin last year (following the revelation of the involvement of state officials in the crash of the insurance and banking empire of Frank Sharp. But a hint of approaching apathy was evident in the 1972 presidential race. The San Antonio voter turnout was far below the norm for recent general elections. Then this spring a lavishly-financed city council campaign lured only 34 per cent of elegiWe voters to the polls and early in June less than four per cent bothered to vote in a 121 million county bond election.. HOW DOES WATERGATE affect the mounting feeling of powedessness that seems to infect voters? It has undoubtedly sharpened this election. "Most of my customers are talking about Watergate," reports a store owner. "They don't understand most of the details, but they know that President Nixon has his tail in a crack." For most citizens, the scandal has simply strengthened (he conviction of one businessman that "it just proves all over again that politicians are no good." There are deeper meanings to be found in the current dis- ittusionment with government. Significantly, Democratic leaders have carefully avoided pointing itheir lingers at Watergate. Citizens should examine themselves at a time like the present, cautions John Daniels, lor many years the coiin* ty Deimocraibic chairman here. "PEOPLE," he said recently, "wiU never realize the ibruth that 'As I am, so is my government.' "How can you expect higher moral standards from politicians? Most of us have weaknesses and failings, but we stubbornly put political figures on pedestals and expect too much." (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) (NEXT: Natchex, Mississippi) Now You Know...
