Carter cousin tells fam

WASHINGTON (AP)-Jimmy Carter
was replaced as valedictorian of the
class of 1941 at Plains High School and
lost a college scholarship because he
was caught playing hooky, according to
his first cousin Hugh.
The future president had the grades
to justify the honor, Hugh Carter says
in a new book about the Carter family.
"But in just one mad moment he made
the wrong decision," his cousin said,
and joined classmates on an April
Fool's day trek to a movie.
THE BOOK ALSO cites "family
gossip" that President Carter's
mother, Miss Lillian, felt Rosalynn
Carter was not good enough to marry
into the family.
Hugh Carter Jr., the author's son and
a special assistant to the president for
administration, said he didn't know
whether the president's family was up-
set about the book. He said he had hot
heard of any reaction from Rosalynn
Carter, although she has a copy of the
book,, and did not know whether the
president has read the book.
The book makes clear that Hugh
retains some lingering bitterness over
the "extreme disappointment" he felt
when his cousin, then governor of
Georgia, failed to appoint him to the
U.S. Senate to replace the late Sen.
Richard Russell.
HUGH CARTER, a Georgia statg
senator and self-described "worm king
of America," titled his book, "Cousin
Beedie and Cousin Hot" from the two
men's nicknames when they were

children in Plains.
Hugh was Beedie, a name he got from
a nurse who would croon, "Beddy Bye,
Beedie Bye." Jimmy was "Hot," a con-
traction of his father's description of
him as a "hotshot."
Hugh said that on April Fool's Day
1941, Lonnie Taylor, the only boy in
Jimmy Carter's class with his own car,
"got almost all of the fellows in the
senior class to _play hooky" to see a
"SUCH A THING would not be kept
secret, and when Miss Julia Coleman,
the school superintendent, heard of it,
she decided that the fitting punishment
for Jimmy was that Jimmy could not
take his place as valedictorian," Hugh
Carter said.
He said his cousin also lost a scholar-
ship to Georgia Southwestern College in
Americus because of the incident.
The president did not mention the in-
cident in his autobiography, "Why Not
the Best." But in "Dasher," a
biography by James Wooten, Carter
confirmed that he played hooky.
that his only punishment was a
spanking. That book says Carter gave
his Georgia Southwestern scholarship
to a classmate who needed it more and
that he was chosen as valedictorian.
In his book, Hugh Carter cites
"family gossip" that that Miss Lillian
"hit the ceiling" when her son announ-
ced his intention of marry Rosalynn

ily gossip
"She commented with characteristic
bluntness that Rosalynn was not good
enough for her son and not good enough
to enter the Carter family," Hugh Car-
ter said. "Lillian said openly that Jim-
my was marrying a girl 'from the
wrong side of the tracks."'
