Gen. Waggoner Carr called on county tax assessors-collectors Monday to report to him any interference or intimidation by FBI agents since the current 15-day voter registration period began. As his request went into the mail, officials in a number of counties reported federal agents already had appeared to check on the sign-up of voters. Carr asked information from the 43 counties where U.S. Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach has said spot checks will be made. The registration of persons who did not qualify to vote earlier by paying poll taxes began March 3. Travis County Assessor-collector Fritz Robinson in Austin said agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation visited his office Saturday and Monday to inquire about procedure and how the public was notified. Robinson replied that all news media were supplied information about the registering of voters and the job was being done at 17 fire stations. Through Monday, 53S had registered in Travis County and 200 more persons had mailed applications. Tax officers in other counties JEFF PARfE too."

The college board of regents discussed selli ng the bonds Monday night after canvassing the election returns. Issuing of the $1-3 million of bonds to finance expansion of college facilities and purchase of land for a future campus was approved bv a vote of 1,553 to 765. This 2 to 1 approval was termed "a very excellent per- formance'' by John. R. Keller of RowJes Winston & Co., Inc., the college district's fiscal agent, Keller told the regents the bond market currently is unfavorable but is expected to improve within the next two weeks. He advised the board that the summer months are not usually a good time for selling bonds. He suggested that perhaps the regents might want to consider waiting until next fall to sell the bonds, if the money is not required earlier. College officials were not sure Monday night whether the bond money would be required before fall. Possibility of borrowing money without interest under the college district's bank depository contract was mentioned. Bruce Ramsey, college district attorney, expressed doubt Monday night that the college can borrow money for capital improvements. He advised the board that the money would have to be available before a contract is awarded for construction of a building. The college officials hope to award a contract for -the technical-vocational facilities rso later than June 30. Ramsey said he would investigate the legality of borrowing money under the depository contract for capital improvements. Keller pointed out to the regents that if thg bond market appears unfavorable a few days before April 5, the sale can be postponed until a later date. The fiscal agent was authorized to proceed with preparation of a bond brochure. A rating wii] be obtained on the bonds from a bond rating service in New York City.
