SPE(3DAIL AT "The House off Good Food" our own special a Is Clash enafeRiVi By WOODY FITCHETTE Gannett News Service NEW YORK Democrat Richard L. Ottinger and Republican Sen. Charles E. Goodell clashed yesterday in a television debate over whether Ottinger has been distorting the Goodell record. Ottinger saiG Goodell has been taking credit during the campaign for bills he did little or no work on. Goodell denied the charge and said, "I don't know why you go around the state saying that." Goodell has been making much of the fact that he had a hand in 44 major pieces of legislation in his time in the Senate and has been calling Ottinger's House record nonproductive. The third entry in the Senate race James L. Buckley also took part in the debate and said that Goodell and Ottinger are "carbon copies" of each other, with views usually Buckley Backed 'By News T NEW YORK (AP) - The ;New York Daily News has endorsed Conservative James L. Buckley for U. S. Senator over 'two major-party opponents. The News said in today's edition that Buckley's election would "encourage the Nixon administration to remain moderate-conservative rather than over-flirt with liberalism, and would take a brilliant and courageous new personality to Capitol Hill." Of the incumbent Republican, Sen. Charles Goodell, who also has Liberal party endorsement, the News noted that Vice President Spiro T. Agnew said Goodell had "read himself out of the party by his conduct and his action in the past year." The newspaper said it saw little to choose between Goodell and the Democratic nominee, Rep. Richard Ottinger. In 1968, the News endorsed Republican incumbent Sen. Jacob K. Javits over Buckley and Democrat Paul O'Dwyer. Governor to Tell Drug ft - i. mf . -it' iL - Rockefeller Governor Race 'Neck And Neck' ACCORD (UPI) - Republican State Chairman Charles T. Lanigan said yesterday the race for governor is "neck-and-neck." The chairman said Democratic candidate Arthur J. Goldberg is "making a strong and hard fight for the governorship, but he is spreading false information across the state concerning the achievements of Governor Rockefeller, and is evidently the victim of grossly misinformed behind the scenes advisers." Lanigan made his charge at the annual fund raising dinner of the Ulster County Republican committee. Lanigan also warned the Republicans against complacency. "The polls show this to be a neck-and-neck race all the way," the chairman said. "A failure to get out the Republican vote on Nov. 3 could be catastrophic." tmm !impMtv .www Goodell associated with liberal Democrats. Unlike their first joint appearance a week ago, the candidates yesterday peppered their remarks with criticism of one another. Ottinger said Nixon Administration policies have caused unemployment and inflation that are ruining the country. He was equally critical of New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. He charged that Goodell is beholden to Rockefeller, and, if he wins the Nov. 3 election, will vote in reorganizing the Senate to put "Nixon-Apew lieutenants" in top places. Goodell's reply was that he considers Rockefeller "a great governor" and that he does not believe Vice President Spiro T. Agnew "thinks I am Tax Revision Pledged NEW YORK (UPI)-Arthur J. Goldberg promised yesterday to revise the state's tax system and increase state unemployment compensation. The Democratic gubernatorial candidate accused Governor Rockefeller of "conning" the voters by failing to live up to his campaign promises made in 1958, 1962 and 1966. Predicting a "Democratic sweep" in the Nov 3 election, Goldberg said there was "a feeling of people that they have been conned" by the Rockefeller administration. "The time has come ... to level with the people," Goldberg said in a television interview The Democratic-Liberal candidate said he would conduct a non-partisan adminis- Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller is expected to make what aides call a "significant announcement" about drug control when he visits Rochester today. Scheduled to speak at 1:30 p.m. to the State Conference on Drug Abuse at the Flagship-Rochester hotel, Rockefeller probably will announce "more money and more participation in fighting narcotics," said attorney Charles A. Schiano, head of Monroe County's new narcotics council. After he leaves Rochester, several aides will remain to remind local voters of Rockefeller's multi-million drug-control program. Former baseball great Jackie Robinson, Rockefeller's special assistant, and Milton Luger, chairman of the state's Narcotics Addiction Control Commission, will speak to the He Plans 'Announcement1 Who'll Get Lindsay Nod? NEW YORK (UPI) -Mayor John V. Lindsay will make "an announcement" regarding New York State's gubernatorial race before election day Nov. 3, a spokesman for Lindsay said yesterday. However, the spokesman said Lindsay "has not made any decision" as to what that announcement will be an endorsement of either Republican Gov. Rockefeller or Democratic-Liberal candidate Arthur J. Goldberg, a statement claiming neutrality in the race, or some other comment. The spokesman's statement came in response to a report that Lindsay, a Republican, would announce his support of Goldberg tomorrow. In New York, Gov. Rockefeller said yesterday if he were Tj !i MOMS Mi ' M I Ottinger in the Senate just to do what the President wants." Buckley said that neither Goodell nor Ottinger would be able to work as well as he with the Nixon Administra-' tion. Goodell, he said, has been "warmly embraced" by both the left-leaning Americans for Democratic Action and Alex Rose, top man in the Liberal Party, which has endorsed Goodell. Goodell and Ottinger took turns criticising Buckley. Goodell said Buckley has ideas that belong in the past. Ottinger questioned Buckley about a newspaper story that quoted Buckley as saying Alabama Gov. George Wallace was "expressing the same sentiments. I hope to be expressing in a less flamboyant way."

Citing the narcotics problem as a major issue facing the voters, the former U.N. ambassador said he would give treatment to any addict who Rights Program Revealed ALBANY (UPI) A legislative program to strengthen state laws against discrimination was announced yesterday by Governor Rockefeller who said he would submit the plan to the 1971 legislature if he is re-elected. The measures would: Extend the human rights law to include all houses and apartments plus all "commercial" boarding houses. Prohibit discrimination in employment to include all employers. Permit posting of property involved in proceedings before the State Division of Human Rights. Ban discrimination in public accommodation because of sex.

He said that anyone who had been with him in that campaign knows "I am not doing what Mr. Ottinger suggests." Buckley said the other candidates are too soft on law and order, and they said that the tougher enforcement that he calls for would only cause more crime. All candidates said they favor limiting campaign spending by law. Noting that the wealthy Ottinger had voted for such a bill later vetoed by the President Buckley said: "Mr. Ottinger's work on that bill was an act of penance."

Attacking what he called Rockefeller's "lock up ap-prach" to narcotics addiction, Goldberg said he favored making the methadoe program more available to heroin addicts. In other matters, Goldberg said he wouid revise the tax system as governor, and redistribute the tax burden to "those best able to pay." Goldberg said he would attack 'New York City's projected $150 million budget deficit by shifting city priorities away from costly non-essential projects to "things that ought to be done.

Rockefeller said he believes he deserves Lindsay's endorsement because his administration has greatly increased state aid to New York City. But Rockefeller said Lindsay has personal "problems" and "questions" to consider, such as whether to remain in the Republican party. By not endorsing anyone, Rockefeller said, Lindsay would remain "more flexible for the future." Lindsay has been reported to be considering switching his registration from Republican to Democrat as a prelude to seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 1972. 5j i GgS I, ii i i - The House 1 VX I if)) " w I tmm Dddoiic: 111 ' , It's sort of selfish in a way.
