Al a news conference Salurda.v in Buisp, Church said under control, government should be taking action to stimulate competition," Church said, adding thai he would favor "anything that tends toward thai."

Of the other dozen or so Democratic candidates for the presidency. Church said only J i m m y Carter and George Wallace "have shown the strength to win in any state." If Carter continues to win, as lie did in the New Hampshire primary, "it will be very difficult (or anyone to enlcr late and overcome his momenlum. hut he has some very serious hurdles," Church said. Carter has not Ijeen tested in any of the large, metropolitan states, many of which have lute pi imarics that Church will have an opportunity to enter. The late primaries come just before Hie Democratic n o m i n a t i n g convention. Church noted. Since "no candidate is likely to win on the first ballot, the candidate with (he momenlum will have the besl chance," he said. "1 have been given no evidence to change my mind on my anticipation that no one would emerge as a clear winner in the early primaries." Ihe "most powerful organizations and agencies in Ihe country," Church said. He h2ads the Senate Intelligence Comtnillee investigating Ihe CIA, FBI and other agencies as well as Ihe subeommillee probing m u l t i n a t i o n a l corporations. He said these federal agencies "have got to be brought back into Ihe harness of law." None of the other candidates have discussed lhat problem much and so "people will have the basis for distinguishing my candidacy." Church said his ability to be elected from a conservative slule while being generally considered a liberal Democrat -might be of value to him in winning nationally since voters are not "likely to move to one extreme or the other" Ihis year.. "There is a corner we Democrats must turn," he said. "1 doubt Ihe electorate will respond to a candidate who offers updated versions of the New Deal or Great Society. We have about reached the limits of bigger government spending as the solution to many of Ihe problems lhat face us. "If we really want to get the economy moving and inflation stability upon a "volcano" of emerging areas and "the notion that the entire world is bul an extension of Western Europe and policies that worked there should work elsewhere." U.S. foreign policy "should be taken out of the hands of the fraternity of compulsive in- lervenlionists who have had us in more wars than any other nation," he said. Church said establishment of an urban conservation corps to put young people in the cities to work should be considered. This high unemployment among urban youth "is a bomb with a short fuse." Church ruled out Ihe vice presidency, slating he would prefer to remain in the Senate if it came lo a choice, "I've had lhat confirmed by those who I know who held it (the vice presidency.)" "I am interested in Ihe presidency," Church said. He called his 20 years in the Senate "an intensive training ground for the presidency. Without those years 1 would not have the presumption to run. The presidency should not go lo someone who needs on the job training."
