Pig* A-2--INDEPENDENT State's Boom Biggest Ever: Fiscal Headaches Likewise By JERRY RANKIN - SACRAMENTO WJ --Lawmakers got a double dose of · the economic facts of life Thursday, hearing both that California is booming better .-than ever and that slate goy- Vemmeht faces a massive fis- ' cal crisis next year. ', Gov. Brown, heading into what may become a bitter fight for a third-term nomi- ; nation, told legislators "We are growing, thriving, pros '. pering as no society in the history of the world." Strong '. leadership on his part is a ' prime factor in this prosper', ity, he declared. · The Democratic chief executive's third annual economic ] report to the legislature came '- at the. same time Democratic ·; State Controller Alan Crans !. ton forecast financial peri * for whoever sits in the gover ' nor's chair in 1967. ,1 * # * » ;; CRANSTON r e l e a s e d ·· statement favoring 'Brown' ;! plan to avoid a previously ah ;- nounced tax hike by adoptin v a new bookkeeping metho f tt Is called the · accrual sys ·'" tern, and basically allows th C- state to count as operatin -J. cash, tax revenue that Is no '-. in the treasury, but eventua i--; ly will be. ·'" "Accrual accounting is !!; sound and modern busines - r . practice," the controller de u- clared. But he also agree r. with Republicans who predi u a budget deficit of more tha r'; $300 million next year. t · "There should be no mls'un f. · derstandiiig of the fact tha ^ accrual accounting . . ..wi -^ only delay for one year, an *' will not eliminate, the nee ',' . for major tax increases an \- reforms. .

The revenue gap must oon and resolutely be met," e said.' · ·* * * HE DISAGREED, however, ith the GOP contention that se of the new accounting ystem should be further tudied and not put into op- ration for the fiscal year tarting July 1. "Tax increase s a strong stimulant to the state e c o n o m y , there Is 'strong, mounting and dra natic evidence that the aerospace industry is entering new era of diversification and production for a world at California's unemployment problem, the governor's mes sage to the legislature said, "is not that our economy cannot or does not produce enough jobs . . . The basic problem, and it is more nd reform programs should vere in California ttmn else- not be developed haphazard '"' " " *'"' y, in the heat of an election 'ear, by a legislature in a tate of. flux because of reapportionment,"'Cranston declared. Harsher criticism of the Republican attack on the budg- et-balacing . plan came from Jrown's top aide, Finance Director Hale Champion. He called the GOP position "a miscellaneous assortment of miscalculations · and misunderstandings . . . purely political . .'." Assembly Minority Leader Robert T. Monagan, R-Tracy, where, is one of fitting the man to the job; fitting skills to e m p l o y m e n t requirements." This is aggravated, he added, . because an · unusually large numtier of the new arrivals in California each year are either disadvantaged Negroes, young and inexperienced, or both. He again called for a federal drive to open up useful jobs. "What I am proposing s not suggesting that California anc the nation have work which needs to. be done, surplus manpower to do it, and the ·is determined to find a way resou rces to pay for it: to try to force people to pay more taxes this year, and he's welcome to the e f f o r t , " Champnon stated. make work.

Solon Challenges Foes of Welfare Provisions SACRAMENTO (UPI) -The chairman of the Senate S o c i a 1 Welfare Committee challenged critics of the so- called MARS welfare -pro- jram Thursday to suggest an alternative that would not deprive needy children of support. · Sen. Alvin C. Weingand, D-Santa Barbara, said the MARS-- short for "man assuming the role of spouse"-provisions were being used as a political whipping post by opponents of the entire Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) program. "Let us k e e p clearly in mind the essential purpose of together' without marriage. AFDC: to assist needy children," Weingand said. ' '. 'The critics have a responsibility lo suggest alternatives that will not. aggravate these children's need.'.' ; Weingand 1 s statement was issued in reply to charges m a d e by Rep. Charles J.
