sions on an employe's status.
ie is also the last person on
she grievance procedure list
for employes.
"I have the final say on the
supervision of the work force
and those decisions range from
deciding what color the police
cars are going to be to how
many fireman are going to ride
on a truck," said Murray.
MURRAY'S OTHER respon-
sibilities are public information
and inter - governmental rela-
tions.
If a state law is bound to ef-
fect the city, for example, Mur-
ray has the responsibility of
communicating that law to
Council. -
Murray said in order to keep
his salary in perspective, it
should be remembered that
Guy Larcom, the city adminis-
trator Murray replaced in 1973,
was making more money when
he gave up his position. The
amount was in excess of
$39,000.
"WHAT HAS CHANGED be-

tween me and the previous ad- which separates
ministrator is that Council now publicans and fi
has to make an overt decision on Council.
On the administrator's pay," he "One of the thi
said. "I recommend pay raises job is that it is n
for everyone in the city. Now it be a partisan jot
could be argued that since my ray. "If I everl
pay is in the budget also, I can in this town start
submit my salary as regular a Democrat or;
policy, but I don't." I've got my pro
City Council member and think I have beer
Mayor Pro-Tem Louis Belch- that"
er said it was a mark of Mur-
ray's stature when he refused
to accept a pay raise during
his first year as city adminis- E
trator.
"He told us you've got to see -
what I can do first before you Line
can give me a raise. Murray
wants his pay raises solely
predicated on the job he is do-
ing," noted Belcher. "He prob-
ably has gotten fewer raises, in
the past three years than any

ye Democrats

let the people

WHEN ASKED WHY Coun-
cil had not increased his. sal-
ary, Murray responded: "That's
what I've been wondering for
three years."
Both Belcher and Kenworthy
agree Murray is especially pro-
ficient at walking the thin line

Probably not. All thL - ~",1 you do

But...
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a lit ..ight mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it costing us now for repairs and inefficiency.
Point two.By taking more pride in our work
we'll more thanlikely see America regaining its
strength inthecompetitive world tradearena. When
the balance of payments swingsour way agai we'll
all be better off economically.

Each "Energy Line" caller
is treated with the "I care" at-
titude from the counselors, Carl
said. They try to treat callers
with the same personal feeling
they would offer a brother or
cousin on the telephone.
"Energy Line" counselors help
people solve their problems,
Some people call to relieve bore-
dom-one lady, who calls once
or twice a day, said it is a
break in her routine job.
COUNSELORS advise people
trying to find jobs or housing
but they also talk to those with
more serious problems.
"Energy Line" has helped
alcoholics, people contemplating
suicide; and those with problems
in their home life.
The group is a privately fund-
ed, non-profit organization. Carl,
the group's spokesman said,
"You could just say the funding
is from within the group."
"We prefer to pay our own
expenses," Craig said.
"Energy Line's" phone num-
ber can't be found in the tele-
phone book but can occasionally
be found in the Daily "per-
sonals."
