-lkJ--niULf LHt/Lhl (AM) CHURCH RUNS (Continued from Page A-l) stale except Mississippi and Alabama. R e p u b l i c a n R e a g a n , whose challenge to President Ford has been hurt by five straight primary defeats, insisted his candidacy was in better shape than he had anticipated before he launched his campaign. In his announcement, Church assailed what he called "a leadership of weakness and fear" in Washington. He said that he was entering the campaign at this time because of his conviction that "Ihe most important issues arc - being ignored." T h e s e he outlined as being "the restoration of ; the federal government to legitimacy in the eyes of the people," and "better, not bigger government" by "turning the decision- making homeward again." He pledged to "give free enterprise some breathing room" by imposing controls on huge, tnulli-na- tional corporations and by a b o l i s h i n g "regulations t h a t stifle competition," especially in small busi- . nesses. He leaned heavily on his . years of experience in the Senate as qualifying him ; for the White House. He stressed that every foreign policy decision "sends ripples or waves back across America." Church chose tiny Idaho City -- population 200 plus s e a s o n a l tourists -- because his grandfather settled there in (he 1860's, when the gold rush was at ils height and when the town had 41 saloons and a population of 30,000. Church compared his candidacy to the race between the torloise and the hare: "Like I'm doing, he started slowly but came on strong to win." Meanwhile, Reagan said he would stay in the race even if he loses to Ford in Tuesday's primary. "I don't see why sud- d e n l y t h i s h a s turned around," Reagan said in Fayctlevillc, N.C., in an apparent reference to reports that his campaign is faltering because he has not won a primary and he- will have to withdraw if he doesn't get a victory soon. "I don't think the press has been unfair, but 1 think there's been some falling in line with t h e Ford campaign strategy on trying to pin everything o n t h e s e f i r s t f e w p r i - maries." Later, in Hickory, Reagan told reporters: "Go back to Nov. 20 when I declared. I remember distinctly reading that if I got 40 per cent in New Hampshire and came close in F l o r i d a , t h e President would have to seriously consider dropping oul." He did not say where he read the prediction, Reagan got 47 per cent of the vote in the Florida primary and 49 per cent in New Hampshire. Ford said Thursday night he would not consider primary victories in Illinois and North Carolina " k n o c k o u l p u n c h e s " against Reagan. A v i c t o r y in N o r t h Carolina "would be very helpful," Ford said, adding: "I wouldn't categorize any one particular prim a r y as a k n o c k o u t punch. When you accumulate them, you add them up. That, of course, has to have an impact." Ford m a d e his comm e n t s in an interview broadcast by a Charlotte, N . C . , TV station. The i n t e r v i e w w a s t a p e d Wednesday in Washington. W h i t e House P r e s s Secretary Ron Nessen said in Washington Thursday that Ford and his associates want to do what they FRANK CHURCH AND WIFE, AFTER HE can to assure that Reagan and his campaign workers will be welcomed "when Reagan decides to give up his campaign." Asked if he meant to s u g g e s t t h a t Reagan's eventual withdrawal was a foregone conclusion, Ncs- sen said, "That's for Reagan lo decide." Ncsscn said Ford "has not asked nor authorized Campaign '76 anyone on his staff or at the PFC (President Ford Committee) to put out any feelers to Reagan" urging that he withdraw. Democrat Wallace told an enthusiastic crowd at the Kinsfon, N.C., airport that his health was fine and would prove no obstacle lo his s e r v i n g as president. "I feel good," Wallace said. "If I wasn't in good health, I wouldn't be in Kinslon." Wallace, confined to a wheelchair since a 1972 assassination attempt, lost to Carter in Florida and Illinois b u l outdistanced him in Massachusetts, with (he primary won by Sen. Henry Jackson, D- Wash. Wallace told the Kinslon crowd t h a i Carter was supported by former backers of Sen. George McCoy- em, the party's 1972 nominee. "I don'l have any McGovern workers w i t h me anil I don'l want any," he said. Meanwhile, Carter told a crowd al a downtown Charlotte rally thai, "Wall a c e , for a l o n g lime, .unfortunately, has been the spokesman for the South. Bul times h a v e changed and I think the S o u t h is m u c h b e t t e r represented by people like me." Carter later motored to Concord, where he donned an apron and helped cook pancakes for the Caharrns County Hoys Club annual pancake feast. A poll published earlier this week by the Raleigh News a n d O b s e r v e r showed Carler with an 11 ENTERED RACE -AP Wfftphcw per cenl lead over Wallace in North Carolina. Also on the ballot in North Carolina are Democrats Jackson, Rep. Morris Udall of Arizona, former Sen. Fred Harris of Oklahoma and Texas Sen. Lloyd Bentscn, who has dropped out of the race. However, they have decided nol to campaign actively there and are spending their lime in other stales. FARM (Continued from Page A-l) trespass-oriented board. It doesn't mean peace in the fields." A s s e m b l y m a n D a n Bo'alwright, D - C o n c o r d , charged t h a t foes were using the bill as "a political f o o t b a l l " in t h e afternoon-long debate. "It is something that m u s t be d o n e , " Boatwright said. B r o w n issued a statement saying, "I believe the Assembly has acted wisely and with courage.^ But the bill could face a tougher fight in the State Senate, where an ALRB funding b i l l f e l l seven votes short in January. Boatwright's b i l l o r i g i - nally called for $3.8 million to carry the board through June. The amount was reduced to $2.5 million on the Assembly floor because the ALRB's virtual shutdown has reduced its need. Another provision of the bill would require a commission of five members of e a c h house to recommend changes in (he law by M a y 15, possibly including revision of t h e controversial access rule. That rule, a focus of grower complaints, allows union organizers onto growers' p r o p e r t y for three hours a day. "If we don't see those changes, t h i s board is going to have a short life," said Assembly Speaker l,eo M c C a r t h y , D-San Francisco. Numerous rural Demo- c r a t s vowed to v o t e against Brown's e n t i r e state budget in June unless the board changes ils rules. · __ NEW ELECTRONIC PRINTING CALCULATOR RETAIL LESS $99 95 3 DAYS ONLY } with AUTOMATIC CARRIAGE RETURN 5 YR.
