Texas Rep. Barbara Jordan
says she won't run next year

HOUSTON (AP) - Texas Con-
gresswoman Barbara Jordan, whose
Loft-spoken oratory highlighted the
1976 Democratic National Conven-
tion and the impeachment hearings
of former President Richard Nixon,
said yesterday she will not seek
re-election. She declined to elaborate
on her plans for the future.
She dismissed rumors of poor
health or that she would seek a
federal judgeship, a seat on the Fifth
Circuit Court of Appeals or the U.S.
Supreme Court.
"THE LONGER you stay in Con-
gress the harder it is to leave," said
Jordan, who five years ago became
the first black woman from the South

to be elected to the House since
Reconstruction. "I didn't want to
wake up one fine, sunny morning and
say there is nothing else that
Barbara Jordan can do."
The representative from Houston's
predominantly black 18th District
appeared somewhat drawn and
limped on her right leg as she entered
the news conference.
"My health is good," she said.
"I've got a bum knee which assures
that I wouldn't join the cast of a
chorus line or become a running back
for the Houston Oilers."
ASKED IF SHE had spoken with
President Carter about her future,
she said, "He doesn't consult with me
about my future, but I need to consult

with him about his."
Jordan said she wanted to clear up
the rumors concerning a judgeship.
"Some of you already have me
slotted to the Fifth Circuit or the
Supreme Court," Jordan said. "This
statement really speaks for itself. I
have never said to anyone I have a
desire to become a judge.
"I trust there will be something for
me to do, but I honestly don't have a
hidden agenda."
JORDAN SERVED in the Texas
State Senate, where she became
president pro tempore and was the
first black person elected to preside
over the State Senate. She went to
Congress in 1972 as a representative
from the then newly created 18th
Since being elected to the House,
she has been a highly visible member
of the Texas delegation.
As the first black woman to
address the Democratic Convention
last year, she electrified what had
previously been a dull gathering,
speaking with a precise, clipped
FOLLOWING her keynote speech,
she was interviewed by Carter amid
speculation she would be considered
for a cabinet post, but no such
appointment came.
Her remarks during the Nixon im-
peachment hearings earlier drew
similar response, but she said those
were not her proudest moments in
"At this point in time, my single
most satisfying accomplishment has
been representing the hundreds and
thousands of nameless, faceless and
voiceless people," she said. "The
letters I enjoy the most are the ones
that say, 'at last I feel someone is
talking for me.'"

CALIFANO SAID the Treasury
Department has estimated the pro-
gram would cost the governmept
some $1.2 billion a year.
The Roth proposal was attached to
legislation aimed at shoring up the
financially strapped Social Security
system, and it triggered a feud
between House and Senate conferees
The argument blocked final agree-
ment on measures that wouldsub-
stantially increase Social Security
taxes for 107 million workers and
their employers. The two sides
deadlocked when Senate conferees
insisted on including Roth's tax
credit proposal in the Social Security
CALIFANO denounced the Roth
proposal at a White House news con-
ference, held Saturday while Carter
was spending the weekend at Camp
David, Md.
He criticized the senator's plan as
"utterly unrelated to the Social
Security legislation" and said Carter
"obviously felt strongly about it."
"I would seriously consider recom-
mending a veto to the President," if

the proposal remains in the legisla-
tion, Califano said.
"We believe it is intolerable for
Senator Roth to hold this bill, so des-
perately needed, hostage for some-
thing that has nothing to do with the
Social Security system," said Cali-
fano, whose department administers
the program.

STU DENTS If you have Used Books
to Sell- Read This!
As the Semester end approaches-bringing with It a period of heavy book selling by students-
ULRICH'S would like to review with you their BUY-BACK POLICY.
Used books fall into several categories, each of which-because of the law of supply and
demand-has its own price tag. Let's explore these various categories for your guidance.
A textbook of current copyright-used on our campus-and which the Teaching Department
involved has approved for re-use in upcoming semesters-has the highest market value. If
ULRICH'S needs copies of this book we will offer a minimum of 50% off the list price for copies
in good *physical condition. When we have sufficient stock of a title for the coming semester,
ULRICH'S will offer a "WHOLESALE PRICE" which will be explained later in this article. (THIS
Paperbacks are classified in two groups: A. Text Paperbacks; B. Trade Paperbacks
A. Text Paperbacks will be purchased from you as Class I books above.
B. Trade Paperbacks would draw an approximate offer of 25% of the list price when in excel-
lent condition.
Some of the above Class I or Class I books will be offered which have torn bindings, loose
pages,,large amounts of highlighting and underlining, or other physical defects. These will be
priced down according to the estimated cost of repair or saleability.
Each semester various professors decide to change text for a given course. These decisions on
change of textbooks are made in echelons of THINKING AND AUTHORITY for above the level
of your local book retailers, AND ULRICH'S HAS NO PART IN THE DECISION. (Quite often we
have MANY copies of the old title of which you have only ONE.)
However, ULRICH's does enter the picture by having connections with over 600 other book-
stores throughout the country. We advertise these discontinued books and sell many of them
at schools where they are still being used. ULRICH'S does this as a service to you and pays you
the BEST POSSIBLE price when you sell them to us with your currently used books.
Authors and publishers frequently bring out new editions. When we "get caught" with an old
edition, let's accept the fact that it has no value on the wholesale market, and put it on the
shelf as a reference book or sell it cheap for a bargain reference book.
You will find that you come out best in the long run when you sell ALL your books


All too often, when the party
ends, the trouble begins.
People who shouldn't be
doing anything more active than
going to sleep are driving a car.
Speeding and weaving their way
to death.
Before any of your friends
drive home from your party, make
sure they aren't drunk.
Don't be fooled because they
drank only beer or wine. Beer and
wine can be just as intoxicating as

If someone gets too drunk to
drive, drive him yourself. Or call a
cab. Or offer to let him sleep over.
Maybe your friend won't be
feeling so good on the morning after,
but you're going to feel terrific.
