Downtown Section, Thurs., Nov. Zl, 19689 fjNixon To Push Private Enterprise, Government Dispersal I-l By H ALTER R.M EARS Associate Press Writer KEY BISCAY NE, Fla. (Af) FME TTIHI ANIK(GII CLEARANCE unavailable for ghetto enterprises, Nixon said there should be new loan guarantee programs, reinsurance and an expansion of Small Business Administration loan offerings. He envisioned a Domestic Development Bank to provide loans and mortgage guarantees for businesses in poverty areas. A New Enterprise program in which businessmen and teachers would help train Negroes in the cities to own or-manage businesses. Nixon proposed tax deductions be offered to attract instructors. A drive to promote home and apartment ownership in city ghettos, with residents Investing their own labor and with the government helping to make mortgages available. Civil Rights "I do not see any significant area where additional legislation could be passed that would be helpful in opening doors that are legally closed," Nixon said. "We must now concentrate on such areas as economic development, education, building and strengthening the black community from within and fashioning a new understanding between the races." Nixon declared himself opposed to the busing of students to achieve racial balance in the schools, insisting that this could actually prove detrimental to the education of the children involved. In connection with racial disturbances in the cities, Nixon said repeatedly that without order there can be no progress. "And I believe that we've got to make it very clear to the potential rioters that in the event something starts, the law will move in with adequate force to put down rioting and looting at the first indication of it." Law and Order Nixon promised a war on crime to include the creation of a Cabinet-level National law Enforcement Council which, he said, would coordinate federal policy on crime prevention and control. He proposes expanded crime fighting research, a national academy of law enforcement, federal assistance for local law enforcement channeled through the states In the form of block grants. Nixon said that would permit the states to determine priorities, and would avoid the danger of federal dominance over local police. Nixon repeatedly criticized Supreme Court decisions on the rights of criminal suspects, saying that some of them have created an Imbalance between what he calls "the peace forces and the criminal forces." Nixon advocates new laws and more manpower to fight organized crime. He favors the use, under court order, of wiretapping and electronic surveillance against crimes paigner Nixon said. "That is a minimum we must insist on." Nixon also said he would emphasize "de-Americanization" of the war. He said there m'lst be a greater stress "on the (raining of the South Vietnamese to fight their own battles and on giving the South Vietnamese people other than the military something to fight for rather than something simply to be against." He advocated a broadening of the peace talks, to include the Soviet Union and other powers with an interest in the Southeast Asian situation. Taxes Nixon advocated elimination of the 10 per cent income surtax. He at first said it should lapse when the Vietnam war is ended, later that he would drop it on schedule which would indicate no request for its renewal after next June 30. He recommnded federal tax sharing, which would return unrestricted grants to the states and local governments to enhance their ability to deal with public problems. "... Let's have the federal government get out of those areas wherever we possibly can," he said. Nixon also advocates the use of tax incentives, some $7 billion worth, to enlist private enterprise in such fields as the reconstruction of blighted city areas, in job training, in pollution control. Poverty The thrust of Nixon's approach to the problem of poverty is to enlist private enterprise, through tax credits and incentives, in the effort to help the poor, with jobs, training and improved neighborhoods. Nixon said that he would as swiftly as possible eliminate the Job Corps program, "as an alternative, I believe we should give a tax credit to private enterprise to train the unemployed for jobs that really exist," he said. Nixon said the Headstart program of pre-school education is one he would continue. He said that welfare rules should be altered to provide Incentives for families to remain together, and to offer incentives instead of penalties to people who supplement welfare checks with part time employment. Nixon also advocated a national minimum standard for welfare payments. The Cities Nixon maintains that a cycle of welfare and public housing has actually "perpetuated poverty" in the cities. His chief programs in this field: Tax Incentives for businesses which locate branch offices or new plants in poverty areas, rural as well as urban. An effort to promote "black capitalism," Negro ownership and operation of businesses in the cities.

Nixon goes before a Demo- i ;!cratic Congress laie in Janu-J . ' ary to oulline the aspirations v of his presidency, he will urge J';'.. that government strive to put -iji "the great engine of private J ' enterprise" to work on the na-V' tion's social problems. 'u,','i i He will, it seems certain, JtJurge a dispersal of govern- ment power from Washington 1 to other echelons of authority, " H to "begin breaking up massive ! . problems into manageable 'pieces." . Abroad, he will likely talk of a new era of negotiation with t? the Communist world. But he ; will at the same time pledge ts firmness and advocate steps 5 ti'to enhance U.S. military fj might, "so that we would not h "'be afraid to negotiate." J His keynote probably will be an appeal for unity and under-N standing at home. And he undoubtedly will pledge an effort to "es ablish communication with every one of the dissident t groups," with Negroes, with f the poor, with disenchanted . young Americans. , Those are among the major ; themes Nixon has sounded throughout nine months of J campaigning. Translated into t specific proposals, and In some Instances into legisla-J tion, these policy pronounce-! J ments and others can be ex- -pected to form the framework , for the State of the Union ad- 'i) dress and many of the other messages Nixon will be send-n lng to Congress after his Inau- guration Jan. 20. ' Here are positions which Nixon has described on major r national Issues r Foreign Policy i Nixon promises a foreign J policy of firmness, and also of negotiation. "To the lead-1 ers of the Communist world ; we says: 'After isn era of con-i frontation, the time has come 't for an era of negotiation'," t Nixon said. J.; "Because this will be a perl- od of negotiation, we shall re- store the strength of America ; 1 so that we shall always negoti- ate from strength and never J m from weakness." i v Nixon advocates constant i and continuing negotiation i ,' with the Soviet Union, Includ-J ing a series of summit meet-J ings. ,' , "It is time to develop a new ' , diplomacy for the United I'... States, a diplomacy to deal J; swith future aggression so i - that when the freedom of friendly nations is threatened 'i by aggression, we help them J with our money and help them ', with our arms; but we let them fight the war and don't fight the war for them," Nixon said. I ' Defense Nixon placed great empha-', sis on a drive to enlarge Amer-l . 'l lean military might. He put it 1" this way: "I intend to restore J our objective of clear-cut mlll-' tary superiority meaning by ', ' this the aggregate that const!-J tutes real superiority rather . ,' than competition weapon by I ' weapon." i Obviously, this is going to ; ,' mean more military spending. His estimates now indicate military spending $10 billion ' above current, Vletnam-lnflat-! ed levels by the end of a four-J , year Nixon term. ' Nixon promised reorganiza-. . tion of the Pentagon to ellml- nate what he called over-cen- V trallzatlon, and restore ready -access to the president by top J military professionals. J "I Intend to restore the Na-. tional Security Council to its I preeminent role In national se- curlty planning," Nixon said. ', He said the objective Is not ' belligerence but the strength ', "to win and hold the peace." ; Nixon said the United States i cannot afford to accept mill-J I'tary parity with the Soviet i JUnion. J Nixon also advocates an end v.' . 'to the draft after the Vietnam J , war Is over, with an all-volun- teer armed force to replace It. J (' The pay and other Incentives J necessary to attract an all-vol- i. unteer force would cost some ! s 0""on a 'par- ne nas estl" mated. .
