A d&lUnbltrlbttW Sun., Ju!y.4, 1965 7 drown s Imkb Today By ED SALZMAN . Tribune Capital Bureau ' SACRAMENTO The bitter legislative brawl of 1965 may have left Gov. Edmund G. Brown so battered that he will abandon his plan to seek a third term next year. Only the minority Republicans appear to have escaped the prolonged . battle of Sacramento without political Bears. Brown, Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Un-ruh and senate leaders all suffered significant defeats, during the past six months. The governor is mounting a campaign to sell the public, on the notion that he won a series of great victories during ; the hectic legislative session and that his chances for 1966 are on the upswing. Most of the evldehce points in the other direction. And from what has been said during the past two weeks "in closed-door meetings, several key legislators are convinced he is starting to back away from a third term. The polls show that any of four Republicans can defeat Brown. Perhaps even more important, the public opinion surveys indicate that most Califor-nians v are not happy with Brown's fiscal policies the major issue of . the legislative year. Mayor Sam - Yorty of Los Angeles, a maverick Democrat, apparently is so convinced that Brown has been critically weakened that he is preparing to run for. governor in next June's state primary. , j -a Yorty who has just won another four-year term as mayor, has little to lose from a guber natorial battle against Brown. ' He is attempting to hire away key members of Unruh's powerful Los Angeles County organization for the June campaign. Unruh denies emphatically, however, that he and Yorty are ganging - up on . Brown,- The speaker says he has not even discussed the :-1966 campaign with the mayor in recent weeks, cent weeks. , ; Brown showed a distinct sigh of weakness last week in an appearance before the Assembly Democratic Caucus ;fc He noted his poor ratings in the polls and pleaded for a tax program that would carry him through the election year of 1966. Brown lost and now faces a politician'! nightmare raising taxes between $200 and $300 million during an election year. Hie Republicans won victory after victory the easy way during the session. They sat on the sidelines and cheered 'while the Democrats cut each1 other to ribbons. ' - - Assemblyman Robert T. Mon-agan of Tracy, GOP floor leader in the lower house," feels the events of the past six months damaged both Brown , and the Democratic party. He claims Brown's inability to provide proper leadership on budgetary ana fiscal matters plus the Unruh-Brown split are the two biggest assets of the GOP for next year's campaign. But Monagan emphasized that he is not counting Brown put be cause the governor has rebounded before from low popularity ratings and because Republicans still must eliminate their internal difficulties and unify behind a single gubernatorial can- Uiuuvvi TOpes 'Shaken By jJ.in LI s, - I , bj 1 MOTHER LODE "Outcast Poker Flat" is Bill Stro-bel's subject In the first of a Sunday series about , people and places of the Mother Lode. .

Chandler Madera, instructed the club riders to appear in his court at 10 a.m. July 16 to show cause why the restraining order should not be made permanent. District Attorney' Everett L Coffee admitted that the civil action was rather on the subtle side since there were felony laws on the books forbidding unlawful acts without the need of any restraining orders. 1 HERE ARE ADDRESSES OF NATIONAL AND STATE ' LEGISLATORS U.S. SMtort Senett Office lulldln Wishlnoton, n.C Sen.
