Brown is a former antiwar activist who says he wants a strong military and doesn't like to see the United States being "pushed around." Brown says it is "a reality" (hat emerging Third World nations will compete w i t h the United States for a greater share of limited world resources 'and that Americans must learn (olive with less. . B r o w n rejects isolation i s m and "Fortress America 11 thinking. But he says the n a t i o n must- maintain a strong military machine to survive in a hostile world. THAT IS what emerges from a review of the 37- year-old Democrat's comments before his declaration two weeks ago that he is a national candidate for president and will run in .California's June 8 Democratic primary. .' Since that time, Brown has refused lo answer 'mnsl foreign-policy questions, saying he will discuss foreign affairs "in due course." · But over 14 months as governor, Brown has m a d e n u m e r o u s com- ments on international Issues -- mostly in interviews with the Associated Press, NBC's "Meet the Press" and P l a y b o y , magazine. On detente, Brown told Playboy: "I get the impression that we're being pushed around a l o t . .and I don't like it. We have a lot of strength, so I don't see why we should have ANALYSIS guilt feelings and act like we're always the f a l l guy." Bat he says he gave his first political speech in opposition to the war in Vietnam and was active in the antiwar movement. "I STARTED in politics by opposing the war in Vietnam. I thought it was wrong. It has seriously undermined the position of America in the world. It has weakened the social and political fabric of our country, and it Is going lo take heroic efforts to rebuild America because of il. "We thought we had the power, but events proved we didn't. The Viet Cong and North Vietnamese had SACRAMENTO (AP) Gov.

Brown also has been quoted as saying he admires Ho Chi Minn, Mao Tse-tung and Ghahdi -not for their ideology but for their asceticism, leadership and approach to life. His comments 'suggest that as president Brown w o u l d oppose unilateral disarmament and take a skeptical s t a n c e toward detente and other dealings with the Soviet Union. But he would have the United States continue to take an a c t i v e role in shaping world affairs. "This country has a world role to play; we cnnnot retreat from that responsibility," B r o w n told "Meet the Press" last October. "THAT involves the Near East; it involves a strong economic and mili- t a r y presence. T h a t is something, a lot of people, especially' at the liberal side of the spectrum, are not willing to face up to," he added. On other foreign-policy and m i l i t a r y issues, Brown said: --Sinai agreement -- He supports "in general" the use of Americans as technicians and observers in the Middle East. "I think we h a v e a very strong _moral commitment to Is- "rael that we have to maintain because (Israel) is a democracy, because it is a buffer in that area." --Military spending -"I'd be surprised if there were dramatic savings to be made. Military'costs have gone up, and 1 don't realistically t h i n k the budget will be cut. "We ought to realize t h a t without substantial military strength, w e ' r e obviously jeopardizing our security." --Third World nations -- "I would like to sec those countries grow and prosper. I would like to share the fruits of this planet with everybody, but at the same time the U.S. has a certain historical momentum that will be maintained." gets 3 nuclear bills · SACRAMENTO (AP) Three bills described by supporters as alternatives } .I nuclear-power-plant initiative were sent to the Assembly floor Tuesday, hut a (mirth died.

B u t A s s e m b l y m a n Charles Warren, D-Los Angeles, chairman of the committee that produced the package, said he rejected utility efforts lo exempt six other plants that a r e i n e a r l y p l a n n i n g stages. Warren said t h a t for many, including himself, the mils were an allenia- .live to Prop. 15 on the June 8 California ballot, a measure l h a t opponents . say would shut clown nuclear power in the stale. The initiative would require a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to approve s a f e t y systems, without which new plants could not be built and existing ones would be phased out. It also would require unlimited liability of plant operators in the evenl of an accident. SPIRES* (o 10 p.m. THURSDAY served from 3 Moretli, former Atecm- bly speaker, said it seemed senseless to have so- called safeguard bills that permit four plants to be finished. B u t A s s e m b l y m a n Terry Goggin, I)-San Bernardino, said exemption of four plants, which would give California seven nuclear plants, was part of a "delicate balance" needed to get the bills through the legislature b e f o r e the June 6 election. He s a i d negotiations with utilities were continuing but in "no way will we exempt six more units. Somewhere between zero and six; we're willing to at least talk about it."

Consumers would p a y the deposit when buyin the beverage and it woul be refunded when the container was returned to a store or recycling center. S u p p o r t e r s s a y t h e measure would help curb waste .and litter, preserve n a t u r a l resources and save consumers money by reducing the cost of beverage containers. Critics say it would result in a loss of jobs in the bottle and can industry while only making a dent in the state's litter problem. Rains agreed the bill could eliminate jobs in the bottle and can industry, but said lhat overall it would r e s u l t in an increase in the number of jobs. "We are not talking about low-paying jobs," he said. "We are talking about substantial jobs." But he agreed lo accept an amendment offered by Sen.
