Truman. "It's a title I've cherished for many years, biit there comes a time when one must step down," the newly commissioned naval reserve officer said Wednesday. "I plan to write President Ford, telling him of the appointment's existence, and perhaps he'll find someone better for the job." When he was a child, Fecn and his mother would go to Lafayette Park, across from the While House, to wait for his father, Capt. Joseph Feeney Fcency was n Navay liaison officer and administrative assist- nt to Truman. "One day I met the President UK! told him that the Lafayette Park Squirrels were real t a t md that his own squirrels at he While House were skinny," Fcency recalled. Truman, he said, acknowledged this dire problem and. to remedy it, appointed the youns- ter Official White House Squirrel Feeder. At 'the lime, Feeney said, he was silting on the President's lap , in the West Wing of the White House. Newsmen overheard the conversation and asked-Truman to elaborate. ' "Those characters on the Hill (Congress) are om vacation,'-so I ' /don't .: need their confirmation," She President said. So the appointment Was is sued, with no expiration date and a stipulation that the jo!) 1 would be without', pay, . '. "Who wanted pay?" grinned Feeney, now stationed at Atlantic, Fleet headquarters here. "It w a s ' a lot of fun to feed the squirrels','.and I went to the White House as often as I could." Later, when word of the appointment spread, he said, the Fccneys were deluged with bags and boxes of peanuts from across tho country; When Fcenoy- grow up, -he went to work ' in the White House, himself--as assistant director 1 of 'the Office of Special IXPffMT WATCH HtPAIH ' · ' ' ' · t SWIFTS Intermission At Kennedy Center President Ford stands w i t h representatives of other presidential families during Intermission at the Kennedy Cen- ter Wednesday evening in Washington.

(AP Wirephoto) Man Suing For Return Of Tithe Is Reimbursed MIAMI, Fla. (AP) -- A man who sued his church because he felt God had not rewarded his S800 in tithes has agreed to drop the suit after a San Antonio, Tex., businessman refunded his $800. Hugh McNatt, 43. of Miami, said in the suit that Rev. Donald Manuel, pastor of the Allapattah Baptish church, had p r o m i s e d "blessings a n d awards would come to a person" who gave 10 per cent of his wealth. : But McNatt, an electrical worker,- contended 'in the suit filed earlier this summer that he received neither blessings nor rewards in the three years that passed after his donation. Alton S. Newell of San An- tonio read of the suit and decided to repay the $800 for the church. "I sympathize with anyone who gives money to the church and sits back and expect God to immediately hand it back to him, with interest, by some specific act." Newell said in a letter to the Rev. Mr. Manuel and McKatt's lawyer. G. E. "ZOOM 'N GROOM" POWER DRYER G. E. "Zoom 'n Groom" power dryer, model P01. High velocity airflow plus 700 watts for fast drying and styling. Two speeds.
