California Heeds More Responsible Leadership, Nixon Tells Local Crowds (Continued from Page 1) ngton for the solution of local problems. "Instead of turning to Washing- .on," said Nixon, "we should first jive our own people and private enterprise the chance first . . ." Nixnn said, "The number one challenge in California today is iohs for our increasing . :ion." He said, "we must attract Into this state new investment." "California in the past has been a magnet. But now the old industrial East is waking up and the South, too. California has to keep competitive," he declared. California, Nixon said, cannot 'afford a government that will tax what the traffic will bear." The point is not how many there are on the state payroll, but how r ew we need to do an efficient job, he said. Turning his attention to Hum- raldt County and Northwestern California, Nixon said that he always thought of the stale "as one and not north against south, city against rural." Though the California Water Plan is vital to heavily populated southern California,- it should be 'implemented in such a way so that those areas from where the waters come are protected," said ^Jixon.

Deploring interference in edu cation by (lie federal government, Nixon said: "I don't want bureaucrats telling us what to teach in Colifor- nia. 'Remember," he said,. "who pays the' hills, calls the tune Nixon said thai as Governor ol California he will strive to make the stale "a showcase of independence and individual responsibility-" Must Speak Up He touched off a heavy volley f applause when he said that alifornia needs a Governor who mows Ihe world silualion and can peak up for California when an ssue is not in Uie best interests f the state. "Do you know," Nixon asked, any problem in California lhat s not related to Washington?" He icked off a list of areas, includ- ng welfare, highways, education. On communism, Nixon told his udience that they were "striking a blow for freedom for America y taking an interesl in partisan olitics, regardless of whether you re Republican or Democrat." "Our answer is not more power n Washington," Nixon said, "bu( more power in 180 million indivi- ual and free Americans. Your boice is to see lhat we get re- ponsible government. . ." Nixon, a candidate for public of- ice in California six times and ictorious each lime, was intro- uced by C. R. Janssen, county ampaign chairman for Nixon. Robert W.

A n d e r s o n charged Wednesday that the way the Assembly and Senate voted on Ihe sembly and Senate volcd on the budget gave "dramatic evidence of a growing split within the GOP." He said the evidence was provided by "Ihe failure of Iho Republican minority in Ihe Assembly In approve Ihe governor's budget, contrasted with overwhelming support for the same budgel by all bul two Republicans in the Senate." "Apparently the Assembly minority leadership has embraced ;i 'rule or ruin' philosophy," said Anderson, who is president of the upper house. At the same time, Sen. John F. McCarthy, San Rafael, a candi- dale for (he Republican nomination for Anderson's post, said Wednesday's action on the state bond issues offered proof of GOP inity. McCarthy, speaking for the Senate minority caucus, said the Senate Republicans "support the lie- publican Assembly position of ballot."
