Transcript and jazz nut. To many of the courthouse gang he is just a nut. Since his appointment in 1973, Gray has been feuding with just about everybody in county government, including the commissioners, whom he has called "a bunch of gravel spreaders." (The commissioners maintain county roads.) Gray's archrival is County Auditor S. Grady Fullerton, who wants Gray's office to do its work by hand, not with the computer system Gray installed. Gray's opponent is 16-year veteran City Treasurer Henry Kriegel, a Republican who says Fullerton drafted him for the race. The bearded Kriegel, a former FBI agent, is well-qualified and probably tired of being at the mercy of politicians in his appointive post. But Gray is the highest ranking liberal in the county's government and has the endorsement of blacks, labor, the liberals, Harris County Democrats and Bob Eckhardt. He also draws the backing of other mavericks, like conservative Republican Hank Grover. The biggest blot on Gray's record as far as progressives are concerned is his unsuccessful attempt to fire his comptroller, Gary Van Ooteghem, a gay, for saying he wanted to address the commissioners during office hours about homosexual rights. COUNTY CLERK: This is the only race that a woman is sure to win.Democrat Anita Rodeheaver, assistant to retiring County Clerk R. E. "Bob" Tur- rentine for the last 17 years, faces Republican Jean Hancock Chernosky. Sometimes it seems that in every way except gender Rodeheaver is one of the good ol' boys. She is well-liked by the courthouse gang and has employed both her daughters and their husbands in the clerk's office. That was revealed in the course of a suit a former employee filed against her and Turrentine alleging the worker was fired because of his radical p oh tics. But Rodeheaver is also a respected professional who has been increasingly responsible for the day-to-day management of Turrentines's office. She is solidly in favor of the ERA and women's rights and is pledged to keep petty politics out of the clerk's office. She came within a few votes of winning the endorsement of the Harris County Women's Political Caucus. Chernosky has campaigned little for the privilege of maintaining the county's files of birth and death certificates and deeds. She didn't answer the League of Women Voters' questionnaire and is out of the country at this writing. DISTRICT CLERK Ray Hardy is a good ol' boy in good standing. The Democrat has held the slot for 10 years and developed a nationally-recognized streamlined system of jury selection. But he has been accused of racist personnel policies by Operation Breadbasket's Pluria Marshall and in a suit sanctioned by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed by a black woman former employee. Republican challenger Bob Schneider is something of an oddball for vowing to use the post to point out the stupidity of lawyers and judges. He was big on getting welfare cheats when he ran against Ron Waters in 1972, but he also endorsed abortion rights before the Supreme Court did. JUDGES: All but two of the 60 major judicial posts (that is, not including justices of the peace) which Harris County voters will consider are one- person races. So the two are voters' only chances to do something outside the crazy system that allows virtually any Democrat to remain on the bench as long as he or she likes. One contested judicial race is in the newly created 263rd District Court. Charles J. Hearn was appointed to the bench by Gov. Dolph Briscoe after winning the crowded Democratic primary. Republican Robert L. Baum, a geologist turned lawyer and law professor, has been endorsed by the Harris County Women's Political Caucus. Then there is infamous Judge Jimmie Duncan of County Criminal Court No. 3. Many lawyers say he is rude and incompetent in the courtroom. Duncan received more "not qualified" ratings from Houston Bar Association members than any other judge in the county. Yet the 1,143 lawyers responding to a questionnaire before the May primaries also gave more "preferred" ratings than either of his opponents, which is more of a comment on the bar than Duncan. But that was before Duncan was found to have been taking firearms entered into evidence in his court home to his personal armory. That aroused the docile State Judicial Conduct Commission enough to censure him. Republican challenger Jack Miles has been a practicing attorney for 21 years. He was formerly with the FBI in Washington, D.C.and with the Justice Department in Houston. ^Mu)ays30%to 60% Off Casual Women's Wear... Jhatfs JCinda JCrazyl Are we nuts to sell for less? Not really. All it takes Is smart buying from well known manufacturers who have overproduced, or, are closing out their first quality garments ... some with original labels, some without... never stale, always in fashion. This, along with manu facturers' samples, enables us to have some fashions even before their arrival at major stores. If you don't think that's crazy enough, individual dressing rooms, layaways, an exchange policy, and Visa or Master Charge will have you committed! Now, that's KINDA KRAZY!

But these judgeships are an important part of the judicial system. And for many citizens, JP's are their only contact with courts and form most of their impressions of the government. Democrat Michael David Peck and Republican Bill Yeoman are each in their first political battle in Precinct 5, Position 2. Peck, a young attorney, says the position needs someone with legal knowledge. He opposes proposed constitutional Amendment No. 4 which would extend JP's jurisdiction, because he believes a requirement that judges be lawyers is needed first. Peck favors No. 4 and says he will work to get the Commissioner's Court to help computerize JP records. But Peck charges Yeoman, who is noi an attorney, is running mainly on the strength of the name of his father,who is the University of Houston's head football coach. Two contested JP races are on top in Precinct 4. In Position 1, Democrat H. N. McElroy faces Republican Houston B. Southern. Position 2 pits Democrats Gaylen L. Nix against Republican Davie Wilson. All four are lawyers and non- incumbents. CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS Wait, you're not through yet. There are nine amendments to the state constitution to vote on. Really diligent voters should consult the League of Women Voters' general election voters guide for analyses of the pros and cons by the Texas Legislative Council. Three amendments have drawn the most attention. DICK ^jfc JENKINS FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE - DISTRICT 90 POL. AD. PAID FOR BY THE DICK JENKINS CAMPAIGN FUND. GEORGE MOODY. TREAS.
