Arnett, whose 20th District spans from mid - Menlo Park north to Third Avenue in San Mateo, succeeded Carl "Ike" Britschgi, who stepped down after seven terms for an abortive attempt to win a state Senate seat in 1968. "The legislature is going to have to make some though decisions about priorities between and among school finance, health care and welfare," Arnett told a breakfast meeting attended by campaign supporters in Belmont. "If I've heard anything loud and clear, it's that John Q. and Janne Q. Public are saying, 'no more government spending"." "Of every $1 earned by a Californian, 42 cents goes to support one level of government or another." he said. Citing one potential economic - related crisis. Arnett said.

With a little experience under their belts, the twosome entered several official contests but weren't always successful. At a Livermore contest Jan. 17, Arestis and the Duchess were in the ring, when an error by Arestis' caused their elimination. Because he was so proud of his dog for following a command, he said. 'Thata girl, come on." The judge disqualified them for the "double command." Another, time, he was in the ring with Duchess when a woman in the next ring directed her dog to "come.'' Unfortunately, Duchess also responded and they were disqualified. The Novice A obedience drill includes heeling off leash, healing on leash, a figure - eight walk, standing for examination, a one - minute sit and a three - minute sit. Man . and dog work on drills only about 15 minutes a day. Any more would take the fun out of the training, he said. Arestis enjoys showing off mementos from the competitions and happily discusses successes as well as failures. "I love to brag about that dog," he said. Their next competition is Feb. 15. He admits he was lucky when he picked Duchess among the dogs at the Humane Society. Many stray dogs, he said, would be difficult to train for obedience because of bad experiences with humans in the past. Many trainers, he said, argue that obedience dogs should be purchased only from a reputable breeder. "It doesn't hurt to help some poor stray that has had a bad time," Areslis contends. Paula Baxter Chateau Option Dropped The successful bidder for the Carolands Mansion in Hillsborough, Dr. Selwyn McCabe of Pacific Palisades may be"dropping his option to buy the estate often referred to as the "Chateau." , The executor of the estate.

Ronald Caine said there were 12 to 14 unexplained miles on the car's speedometer. Miss Baxter, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Baxter, was last seen wearing light green corduroy trousers, a light blue parka, a T - shirt emblazoned "Mazatlan," and black desert boots. She is described as five feet six inches tall, weighing 120 lbs., and having long brown hair and blue eyes. Sgt. Caine said a light lue blanket is missing from the car, according to her family. He said the girl's movements are accounted for between the time she left home at about 7 p.m., and the time she left Capuchino High School at 8 p.m. There is no indication that she put the extra miles on the car herself, he said, and no indication that she had been in the mud prior to going to Capuchino. Jobs (Continued from Page 1) The peak unemployment rate during the recession was 8.9 per cent n May, when the labor force had shrunk to a low level. Among signs of an improving employment outlook have been a big decline in new unemployment insurance claims in January, an increase in the average work week to 40.3 hours and an increase in work overtime. Any decline in unemployment would be eagerly welcomed by the Ford administration, since its program for reducing unemployment in 1976 is being criticized as inadequate.

Browning held up a brown - barreled military carbine and asked if it was similar to the one used by Miss Hearst. Norton replied that it was.
