P«gt A-2--JNDE?ENDENT --L.A.C, SAYS:- I'EOPLE IN T1IK NEWS CDC Has iVot Changed Spell It/Luci,' Says LBJ's Daughter · As the CDC (California Democratic Council) ended its convention it was apparent* there had been no change from its left-wing attitude ol four years ago. The only real change was its retusal to endorse the incumbent U.S. senator for re-election. This was understandable in view of Sea Engle's health. But it was ai cruel slap at one of its most ardoit supporters. ' I S * · It was, however, equally understandable that it cfid endorse State Controller Alan Cranston. He was the founder of the CDC and has never wavered from his support of it and its policies. Last year--just before election day--Gov. Brown said he did not agree xvith all the CDC programs. Speaker Unruh openly exposed them. But Cranston never wavered. He was repaid for this loyalty by endorsement for the U.S. Senate scat held by Engle. · Long Beach received a good impression of how these Democratic delegates from our state feel about our tideland oil controversy. They passed a resolution calling for the state to take over control of our entire tideland properties--thus depriving Long Beach of its rights to the tidelinds it has developed for the city and state with fabulous returns--high above any the state has received from any oil developments under its management. The CDC resolution would take away from Long Beach its 50 percent of these revenues. * 6 * The convention made it a point to call for abolition ({ the Un-American Activities Committee of Congress. This long-standing attitude has grven great comfort to the Communists whose activities have been so well documented by that committee over many years. Two "heroes" of the convention were Cranston and Jimmy Roosevelt. !n the endorsement for VS. Senate it gave Cranston a majority of 1197 votes--Roosevelt 777 and Engle 281. · It could be -the kiss of death" to either of these leading candidates. Cranston's record of full support of CDC programs will solidify both Democratic and Republican votes against him by those individuals who are opposed to the ultra-left-wing programs of that organization. The long left-wing record of Jimmy Roosevelt and his record of business dealings while his father was in office is well remembered But Roose- \tlt has announced he would not be a candidate and thereby oppose the CDC. -. * * * The endorsement will very likely mean Cranston will receive the nomination in the June primary electron. But it will give the Republican candidate issues (« which he can carry on a constructive fight to gain t|ie voters of conservative Democrats and Republicans ii the November election. If Cranston bter repudiates the CDC program, he will lose even their support If he does not, he will have to answer for the programs which will be his greatest weakness. ·: It is charged that Democrat Unruh--Speaker of the House--advised President Johnson not to appear al the convention. This was a direct ibp at the CDC when the President was less than an hour away. This ii especially significant when it is realized how important California is to the President in this year's election. But the mastermind Unruh apparently felt it would be more a liability than an asset Cranston may find this true as concerns his own candidacy. But few observers expected anything different than what happened at the CDC convention.--LAC. President Johnson's 16- year-old daughter is now insisting on spelling her name 'LucT*. not Lacy. One of the first official examples of the effect of her campaign came in a press release Monday from t h e National Symphony Orchestra naming "Luci" honorary student chairman for it's "Music for Ycrung Americans." an a n n u a l series of free concerts few- high school students visiting the capital April 17- May 21. A footnote e x p l a i n e d "Miss Johnson prefers this spelling of her name." When did the name-spelling campaign begin? "It happens when you become a teen-ager." (juipped Mrs. Johnson's press secretary. Elizabeth Carpenter. She said Mrs. Johnson has taken Luci's latest fad with the attitude that "this too wilj pass." Will White House official press releases now use the "Luci" spelling instead of "Luc/7 "I guess if I want to pet along with Luci Fd better," said Mrs. Carpenter. STRICKES Queen Frederika w a s stricken with pneumonia Monday in Athens. Her husband. King Paul, is recovering from a stomach uker operation. A medical bulletin issued by the royal palace said the 45-year-old queen had "a high fever with advanced QL'E£N FREDERIKA shivering and pain in the chest area." It said she was suffering from "pulmonary localization." A bulletin on the 62-year- old king said he was in good condition. Paul underwent surgery Friday. Ull'ORCEU Yacht skipper Lee Quinn. who takes sea voyages with all-fir! crews, was divorced in San Jose Monday by his wife. Miry Ann. She said he fell in love with one of his comely crew members. Tht judge awarded Quinn the ketch on which his all- prl crews have taken him to Hawaii and Tahiti Mrs. Quinn received the couple's home in Los Gitos. Quinn, 37, has said he intends to wed Mrs. Bernlce Eerkson, one of his crew girls who has filed suit for divorce from wealthy Johnson Berks on of San Diego. She was a member of Quinn's crew on a Honolulu to Tahiti voyage of the 45- foot kttch Neophyte. DIES The nan who s e r v e d President John F.
