,1974 Mayors Eye Shedding Of Shadow SANDALS FOB HEB Be* 2.99 ttu 99 By Bill Stall SAN DIEGO (AP) -The nation's mayors are trying to flex some new political muscle this year after toiling for years in the shadow of the White House, Congress and the 50 state governors. Five of the delegates to the 42nd annual U.S. Conference of Mayors which opened Saturday are running for the U.S. Senate in 1974. "That has not been paralleled in a good many years." said Indianapolis Mayor Richard G. Lugar, a GOP candidate for the Senate from Indiana. Anothe^ half -dozen or more city chief executives are seeking U.S. House seats and several figure in the wide-open early speculation for a possible spot on national tickets in 1976. The number of candidates for higher office gave the meeting unusual political interest. And the agenda included potentially controversial resolutions dealing with the Watergate-related issues of presidential executive privilege and political reform and ethics. THREE OF THE five mayors running for the Senate are Republicans although Democrats outnumber GOP mayors 13 to 4 among the nation's 20 largest cities. The other three are registered as independents or nonpartisan, Ttie Senate candidates in addition to Lugar are Republicans Ralph J. Perk of Cleve-. land and E. J. Garn of Salt Lake City, and Democrats Peter F. Flaherty of Pittsburgh and Lee Alexander of Syracuse, N.Y. The House candidates include Democrat Norman Mi- rieta,the first American of Japanese extraction to head a major U.S. city --.San Jose, ; Calif. ::.. ; · ; . ' . ' A neighboring mayor, Gary, C. Gillmor of Santa Clara, Calif., is the Democratic nominee to oppose maverick Republican Congressinan Paul N.McCloskey. ."·.'' " ::Cr;v " In an Associated Press survey of selected mayors in advance of the meeting, only two volunteered to name colleagues with the potential of national ticket stature in 1976. New Orleans Mayor Lan: drioi, said, "There are really several good candidates among the nation's mayors, but I would prefer not to single out anyone. "I will say this: The mayors of major cities are men who recognize the problems this nation faces domestically because they deal with them day after day. They meet the citi: zens, they get the complaints, and they implement the programs. You might say American mayors are very close to where all the action is taking place:" But their closeness to controversy has also made it difficult for them to win political promotion. When former New York Mayor John V. Lindsay campaigned in the 1972 presidential primaries, critics questioned how he could ex- : pect to run the country if he couldn't run New" York City. Lindsay contended New York was a well-run metropolis. * * * THE MAYOR mentioned most prominently as a likely presidential running mate in 1976 is Thomas Bradley, the black chief executive of Los Angeles. But Bradley said, "I haven't heard any of the mayors express an interest or a plan or a desire for either the presidency or the vice presidency." He said it would be premature to consider him a potential candidate. Norfolk Mayor Roy B. Martin, conference president, said he considered Democrats Kevin White of Boston and Henry Maier of Milwaukee and Republicans Pete Wilson of San Diego and Lugar as potential national candidates. White was under consideration as Sen. George McGovern's running mate in 1972. Wilson may run for the U.S. .Senate in 1976. Lugar said most mayors probably would seek intermediate office such as the Senate before aiming for a national ticket. "But I don't want to be thought of in that group," he said. The man expected to be- I come the new conference chairman, San Francisco Mayor Joseph L. Alioto, just completed an unsuccessful campaign to win the Democratic nomination for governor of California. There are only five former mayors now serving in the Senate, according to unofficial biographies listed in the Almanac of American Politics. The most prominent is Sen. H u b e r t H. H u m p h r e y , D- Minn., former mayor Minneapolis. The incumbent mayor considered to have the greatest political influence in his state, Chicago's Richard J. Daley, was not expected to attend the conference because of his recent illness. Vinyl; man made sole, heel. Women's in white and colors. Medium 5-10. Girls' in white.

They left the House before the final tally and learned only later that the Labor government had,suffered its first major defeat since the election last February. .There was no gloom. Indeed, as they saw it, the Labor party needed some defeats in Parliament, if only to help justify another election some, time this year in hopes of winning an over-all majority in the House and ending Prime Minister Wilson's uncertain, term as leader of Britain's first minority government in 45 years. "If we won every vote in the Commons, how could we convince the voters that they have to go through another .election campaign?" one politician asked. "It's probably much better if we lose a few." 6204 SAVE $ 20 AM/FM-STEREO, Is-TRACK SYSTEM Automatic or manual track selection, full- range speakers.
