THE BAYTOWN SUN Wedaeaday, December 1, 1W2 Mexico's New President Starts Six-Year Term Of Office MEXICO CITY (AP) - Miguel de la Madrid begins a six year terra as president of Mexico today, unveiling an economic recovery program expected to include an appeal for "moral renewal" and an end to institutionalized corruption. De la Madrid, 47, is replacing President Jose Lopez PortUlo with the traditional inaugural pledge to "look after the well- being and prosperity of the union. And if I do otherwise, let the nation cast blame upon me." Following the ceremony at the newly built House of Representatives palace, de la Madrid planned to deliver a nationally televised speech providing the first details of a political program that has been a tightly guarded secret. The hour-long address to the country's 70 million people was expected to touch on plans to repair the near-bankrupt economy, while stressing the related issue of corruption. Institutionalised corruption is widely acknowledged as the hidden factor in Mexico's financial problems. De la Madrid has pledged to combat corruption, especially in government, and suggests that offenders may go to Jail. The agenda also iri- cluded sn open motorcade carrying de la Madrid and Lopes PortUlo along the capital's broad Paseo de la Reforma avenue, where they were to lay fhjral wreaths at me monuments to Mexican independence, the 1910-1920 Revolution and to revolutionary hero Benito Juarez. On the eve of the inauguration, de la. Madrid announced the 21 members of his Cabinet, holding over six ministers from Lopez Portillo's administration. Topping the list is Treasury Secretary Jesus Silva Herzog, chosen to retain the job he has held since April as Mexico's top financial manager. Mexico's envoy to Washington, Ber- nardo Sepulveda Amor, was named foreign minister, and is expe '.ed to maintain the nation's policy of balancing friendly contacts with the United States, Cuba and Nicaragua's Sandinista government. Mexican political tradition prohibits presidents-elect from making policy statements or from dirtctly criticizing their predecessors after they take off ice. But de la Madrid is widely believed to disagree with many recent economic decisions imposed by Lopez PortUlo, a fellow member of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary' Party. The paity has held a monopoly on Mex- ican politics since It was founded 53 years ago- \ The new president has confided that he was "not 'consulted when Lopez PortUlo nationalized the private banking system Sept. 1, imposing exchange controls in an attempt to save the nation's sinking dollar reserves. Letter To Queen Elizabeth Lands Palace Job For Woman LONDON (AP> — Twenty-year-old Jean Potter had no job, little training and even less hope when she wrote a desperate letter to Queen Elizabeth II asking the monarch to give her work. But she had plenty of luck. Now she's "ab- solutely over the moon" about her new post as a royal housemaid at the sovereign's country estate at Sandringham, 100 miles northeast of London. "I wrote the queen in all seriousness but never expected to be taken on," Miss Potter told The Begin Hopes To Make Dallas Visit DALLAS (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Menacheni Begin told a group of Christian leaders in Jerusalem he is "very hopeful" he will be able to travel here in February to address a pro-Israel rally, participants at the meeting said. Begin canceled a mid-November stop in Dallas when he cut short a 10-day U.S. visit after the death of his wife. The Israeli leader told about two dozen members of a "study mission" to Israel, co-sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Baptists, that he could make no commitment for a Texas trip. But he said he is "very hopeful" he can include Dallas in his itinerary for a White House visit tentatively scheduled in Februrary, participants in the meeting said.

Potts Jr. Services are under the Christmas Associated Press in a telephone interview Tuesday from her Bridgwater home in western England. A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said Miss Potter "is not the first person to be taken on in this way but the examples are rare. You could say she applied at the right time and fitted thebUl." With a record 3.3 million people unemployed in Britain, the palace is bracing now for a flood of appeals from job-seekers. "Inevitably, there will probably be a lot of applications for royal jobs after all the publicity this case has generated," the spokeswoman said. "But there are only 340 full-time staff at Buckingham Palace and very few permanent residents at Sandringham." Neither Miss Potter nor the spokeswoman would disclose her sal Miss Potter said she will share a furnished cottage on the estate with another maid. She will be on probation for the first six months. Miss Potter left school at 16 to look for work but after four years had landed nothing but short- term Jobs — in a store, a beauty salon and for the local industrial pump- making firm where her father is an accountant. Miss Potter, whose unusual case has attracted nationwide press and television publicity, said she wrote in September asking the queen whether there were any vacancies in the royal household. "I remember saying I was prepared to do anything but cannot recall my the exact words," she said. "When the palace replied, I wasn't very encouraged. They said there were lots of people asking for jobs and a long waiting list. I thought it was just the usual answer and forgot, all about it. "Then a second letter arrived saying a job had come up in Sandringham Estate and I was asked to fill out an application form and send a recent photograph. Dr. Paige Patterson, president of the Criswell Center for Biblical Studies in Dallas, presented Begin with a letter from W.A. Criswell of First Baptist Church in Dallas formally renewing the invitation to appear at the church. At the brief meeting at the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament, Patterson said he told Begin, "Mr. Prime Minister, we sill hope you'll be able to appear at our congregation in February." "And he said, 'We're going to do everything we can to make that possible,'" Patterson said. Jimmy Draper, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, told The Dallas Morning News that Begin "obviously is still very burdened and very much in the grief process" over the death of his wife, Aliza, on Nov. 14. direction of Earthman Funeral Home.
