Friday. MULLEN Continued From Page B1 works for the best thing for his citizens," says Rob Hartwell, chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Richard Schulze, R-5th District. "A lot of people are driven by ambition or financial rewards.

But Jim has that trustworthiness, that desire to help the people of Pennsburg," Hartwell continues. "You know he cares about Pennsburg and his word is his bond. And when he needs something, you do everything you can to help him." For Mullen, all the praise is heartening. Sitting on his large his porch, trademark long legs white shoes outstretched and resting on a thickly padded ottoman, he says he has enjoyed the opportunity to serve. "There is tremendous satisfaction in doing stuff you know people need to be done," says Mullen.

At the same time, he acknowledges that he enjoys almost as much the idea that he has earned some small measure of power and influence. "It gave me a chance to be a leader and do the things I knew needed to be done," says Mullen. "It's not that I know people, people know me. And that's more important to me than my knowing them." And the effort Mullen has summoned over the past 20 years, both in Pennsburg and on the boards of Kutztown University and Montgomery County Community College, has earned Mullen a reputation that stretches beyond the Upper Perkiomen Valley to Norristown, Harrisburg and even Washington, D.C. How an Irish Catholic Democrat with liberal leanings wound up as the mayor of a predominantly Republican Pennsylvania Dutch community is probably one of the bigger mysteries Mullen's life.

Born and raised in Tamaqua, Schuylkill County, Mullen was drafted into the Army during World War II, serving stateside first as an intelligence officer then as a financial specialist. After the war, with the help of the G.I. Bill, Mullen attended Muhlenberg College, where he received a bachelor's degree in education, then went on to Lehigh University, where he received his master's degree, also in education. That brought him to Pennsburg, where he first taught at the former Miriam E. Reed Miriam E.

Reed, 78, of Peter Becker Community, Harleysville, died there Wednesday. She was the wife of the late Francis B. Reed She had been a seamstress, working at several area garment factories Born in Emmaus, she was a daughter of the late Horace and Carrie (Wieder) Bilger. She was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church, Sumneytown.

Funeral Home, Bethlehem. Pennsburg High School, then worked as a guidance counselor in the North Penn School District, before returning to the newly consolidated Upper Perkiomen School District as an assistant superintendent. Much of Mullen's familiarity with the region is anchored in his having helped educate an entire generation of North Penn and Upper Perk children who are now adults, the oldest now in their 50s. The fact that Mullen spent so much time in the area school system also meant he had to grow accustomed to constant scrutiny. "In a small town, you can't hide." says Mullen.

"In Allentown, they have to read the article to know Jim Mullen. Down here, they already know Jim Mullen before they read the article." In 1981, having married late and settled down with his wife, Anna, Mullen retired from the Upper Perkiomen School District. By then, he was already involved in local politics, becoming mayor of Pennsburg in 1970. What Mullen brought with him out of his years in education was an ability to talk. He is, quite simply, one of the great small-town speechifiers anywhere.

At the drop of a hat, Mullen can immediately begin speaking on any one of a half dozen matters to which he pays special attention. Besides local issues, these include the special needs of senior citizens and, not surprisingly, education. For example, several years ago, when he was scheduled to deliver a commencement address at the School, school administrators asked Mullen to provide a text of his speech. Mullen complied. "I talked extemporaneously," Mullen says now.

"I gave them something, but it wasn't what I said. "I can't believe people like someone to get up and read a speech," says Mullen, by way of explanation. "I've been impressed by people who can get up and tell you what they have to A second talent Mullen brought with him from the school system was compromise. Years of brokering squabbles between teachers and administrators, and teachers and parents, left Mullen with a natural inclination to seek compromises. In fact, to say Mullen has an ability to find the middle ground in any situation is an understatement.

She was a Realtor in the Kurfiss Real Estate Office, New Hope. Licensed as a Realtor in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, she was formerly employed by the Brose Real Estate Office, Easton. Born in East Orange, N.J., she was a daughter of Ethel G. Seely of Doylestown and the late Raymond D. Seely.

Walnut Bath. No calling hours. between two young lovers in the back seat on a warm summer night. Politics, says Mullen, "is the ability to persuade someone to a point of view that involves a compromise both on their side and yours." If his i illness has cost him anything, so far it is not outwardly apparent. His face is now pink and puffy and he acknowledges that he is often in pain, but the courtly manner and patient attention to detail remain.

But those who know him well say they see a difference, even if they can't exactly describe what it is. "I see a little bit different Jim Mullen right now," says former East Greenville Mayor Roland Spaar a longtime friend. "But he still has the spark. He hasn't changed that way." "I guess you equate it to somebody who walks down a wooded path and steps in a bear trap." says Pennsburg Borough Council President Larry Roeder, a Mullen protege. "He's going to limp for awhile and next time look for the trap." Meanwhile, Mullen can only say that he feels more focused now.

"There are some things that I wanted to do in my life and I've done them," he says. "And there are still things that I want to do and will work towards." Still, Mullen has started putting his affairs in order. Recently, he donated $25,000 to Gwynedd-Mercy College and before that he established two separate scholarship funds totaling $30,000 to benefit Upper Perkiomen students who want to attend either the upscale Perkiomen School or Montgomery County Community College. Beyond that, Mullen says he will continue as mayor. A widownow spends much of his time with a friend, Anna Banyas, of Upper Hanover Township.

"I think it's really stressful for him at this point," says Spaar. "I know he's still trying to put out 100 percent and it's Mullen, for his own part, simply repeats what he told his wife after he retired, that he was going to spend his time working with people in the community. "People have so many wants and so many things they want to get done," says Mullen, sitting on his side porch. "And they don't know how to do it."
