k-eceiving these answers,
Classc<3(^ saw "red” over the
Crystal Crty affair and once again
«t himslef down to take another
stab at ‘‘tilting the White House
windmill."
Tuesday he mailed this letter to
the FYesident:
Dear Mr. President:
In 1976 as a candidate of the
Presidency, you campaigned on a
broad-ranging platform that, a-
mong other things, asked for the
public's trust, pledged a return of
respect for our federal government,
and asserted that, as you had done
as Governor of Georgia, you would
streamline the bureaucracy.
I have supported much of your
Administration, particularly vour
notable successes in foreign affairs,
and have been vocally critical of
what I perceived to be those
aspects in which you have fallen
short.
On July 19.1978, as Mayor of the
City of Hondo, Texas I wrote to
you and expressed concern over the
application, and preliminary ap-
proval of. a grant by H.U.D. to the
City of Crystal City, Texas for
8968JXKJ.00 to explore for a gas well
to meet its needs. Along with
virtually all of mv constituents,
who are. your constituents, as well,
! considered this to be a flagrant
and unsupportable example ol
governmental interference with the
free enterprise system and asked
lor an explanation and justification
for the actions of H U D.
Over two months later, Septem-
ber 30. 1978 I received a letter, not
from the Executive Office of the
President, and not even from
H.U D but. moreover from your
expensive new Department of
Energy saying that my letter had
Fjeen referred to them for an answer.
Mr President, let's stop right
therefor a moment First, whenever
it takes the Federal Government
mw two months to acknowledge
correspondence from %ny citizen,
leave alone an elected official, I
wrxild submit that you have failed
to streamline anything and may
have, in fact, succeeded in making
our policy'-making officials and
elected leaders in Washington even
more remote than under previous
Administrations.
Secondly, the torturious path
that leads one from the Office of the
President, to whom a letter is
addressed, to the Department of
Hriusing and Urban Affairs, who is
the subject of the letter, to the
f)epartment of Energy, who re-
sponds to the letter, is a maze that
mg even the Cheshire Cat of Alice
in Wonderland could explain. Un-
fortunately. it doesn't end there.
The DOE. in responding to my
letter over the signature of Mr.
Milliam E Peacock, simply stated
tha* they were referring the letter
to yrt another bureaucracy for the
purpose of ‘ aUay(ing) my apparent
concerns "
On October 9.1978 Mr. Finnis E.
Jolly, the Area Manager of H.U.D.
in San Antonio masterfully at-
tempted to allav my concerns by
