Brown told a group of newspaper editors today.

He snoke to a meetins southern California editor mem bers of United Press Interna tional Brown told the newsmen that in the 1966 campaign, "you will have 1o deal with a new and alien element for California an element compounded of frustration and fury; of hysteria and hate that is being forced into politics by the radicals of the left and right." Agitation by extremists, he said in prepared remarks, has produced two main reactions: "Supposedly responsible civ 1 ic and elected officials are already debating whether the' right of free speech should ex tend to such unpopular views." "The right and left are making some headway in their effort to jam the frequencies of democratic discussion to replace fact with fear; debate with emotion; reason with prejudice." The governor, noting recent large protests involving the war Viet Nam. told the editors: "I think vou should take a sec ond look at the coverage of these demonstrations We can stop young people from making spectacles of themselves. But we can and should keep it in perspective. If your pages overflow with the words and deeds of the radical left and right, fhen honest debate on serious issues is crowded to one side."

Reds Attack As U.S.Viet Forces Grow SAIGON (UPI) Viet Cong Communist troops tonight at lacked the besieged U.

Frodelhit the Viet Cong at long range Big Zero Made It All Add Up By SUSAN SOSAHR The first night of "The Adding Machine," a tragi comic Eantasy presented by the drama department of the College of San Mateo provided an entertaining and successful evening for a near capacity audience. Mike Kerns, as middle aged Zero, the victim of auto mation, stole the show from his fellow students. The youthful! actor handled the challenging soliloquys with conviction and bility. Bob Nielsen, as Shrdlu the recently departed Mama's boy, caused the audience to applaud scene when he exited. Pixie St. Denis, as Daisy, and Vicki Drvden, as Mrs. Zero, per formed commendably. Lighting and sets added a touch of pro fessionalism to fast moving satire. The 1923 play by Elmer Rice, written as a prophetic vision. has become a tongue in cheek commentary of today. He un dercuts the tension of serious statements and events with subtle humor. As Zero is led off to prison for committing murder, he turns to his wile and remarks. "I've got to go with him. You'll have to dry the dishes yourself." "The Adding Machine." di ected by Irene Griffin, will be performed tonight st 8:15 and omorrow at I p.m. me ixi Tickets are available at the box office. 'Honor Day' Is Asked WASHINGTON (AP) Congress has called on President Johnson to proclaim Saturday, Nov. 27, a National Honor Day in tribute to Americans fighting in the Viet Nam war. "It is fitting to set aside a national day of remembrance dedicated to, and in support of, those Americans who are committing their lives, blood, and energies in the defense of world peace," said a Senate resolution introuced Friday by Sen. Lev erett Saltonstalf, and approved without debate. A similar resolution was adopted by the House. Nov. 27 is the day groups opposed to U.S. policy in Viet Nam plan a march on Washington. D. C. Child Found Dead Four month old Julia Marie Siemers was Found dead in bed at her home. 817 Schwerin Street. Daly City, early this morning, according to Deputy Coroner Robert Cause of death is pending a post mortem examination, Jes sen said. The baby was in good health last night and hadn't been sick, he said he was told. She was pronounced dead on arrival at Kaiser Hospital in South San Francisco at 7:37 a.m. Parents were Mr. and Mrs. Richard Siemers; he is in the Navy. Smash at S.F. The entry from Czechoslovakia with Josef Kroner and Ida Ka minska in the lead roles can only be described as a tragic love song between an arthritic, old, Jewess and a middle aged Aryan during the Nazi occupation in a town in Slovakia in 1942. Kroner is superb as the shy carpenter who is ordered to become the Aryan controller of a small button shop owned by the Jewess. The Aryan is clumsy and stupid, the Jewess is deft and a bit senile. They are two misplaced persons who are unable to communicate or comprehend the threat of Hitler's onslaught. Kaminska's gentle face with its sparkling eyes must be the image that every child dreams of in his grandmother. When the carpenter, in trying to explain his duty, says "I'm your Aryan, you're my Jewess" she nods her head and smiles as if he said "I'm your son." But we speak now of the days when Jews were only required to wear badges and were called names. As the story progresses, and the march to the concentration camps draws nearer, the Aryan desperately tries to find a way to save the old woman from being taken from her home. Kaminska's facial transition from gentle love and peace to the long remembered fear of pogroms and persecution is so con mcing, its frightening, vvittun one moment her eyes and tace show a rigid fear that gives one chilis. The stars are so outstanding that it is difficult to speak of the other players and the film itself. Ihe supporting roles are excellently portrayed. The combination of acting, di rection, camera work and music are cinematically blended with beautiful eliect. It shows a high degree of artistry from the coun try ot origin and will hopefully be shown at local art theaters after the Festival. By JACK RUSSEL A slow moving, poorly dubbed Danish film, "Two People" opened Friday's session of the stylish Ninth Annuel San Francisco Film Festival. The film was shot lovingly but without originality in Copenhagen and details the twisted, up and down romance of two not particularly attractive young Danes. Jens Osterhold is the craggy, Danish theatre usher ivmg rambling talse stones if past resistance heroism. He filled with life, however, and keeps the action moving. Yvonne Ingdahl is the moody, mixed ab technician strangely at tracted and yet repelled by the usher. Jazz music counterpoints the action in the dim dance cellars and boites of. Copenhagen but the life is not glamorous and the city looks less attractive than would be expected. The gue is crisp and alert in Danish but the dubbing is poor. The only laugh in the ttim came when the man mumbled "you have such beautiful There were some good moments ol nurses bawdy con versations and the leering ban ter ot men at lunch or in the beer halls but the film disappoints generally. its final phase. Two years ago, the 514,517,226 east trestle, four miles long, was completed by Peter Kiewit Sons Company. That trestle is now in use and ties in with the old center span section. Last June, a $12,626,402 proj ect to install the concrete substructure for the high level section of the bridge was complet ed. A distinctive feature of the new bridge is that it will have the longest orthotopic section in the world. Its 750 foot central span will be the longest girder span in the U. S. and the third longest in the world. A girder span of such length is made possible by using an orthotopic design, which was developed in Europe. The or thotropic concept provides for the use of a stiffened steel plate deck as the top flange of the girders, resulting a lighter structure with a streamlined silhouette. The central span will have 138.7 feet overwater clearance, eliminating the need for lift span. The bridge will have three channel spans, the 750 foot main span and 37, foot anchor spans on either side. Oa side of the channel spans will be seven 292 foot orthotopic spans. Tne remaining steel spans have some elements of ortho tropic design, but will carry a concrete deck. On the San Mateo side there will be nine 208 foot spans. On the Hay ward side, there are 10 spans ranging from 186 to 208 feet. Totai length of the orthotopic section of the bridge is 5,542 feet. Ihe entire high level sections, including the non ortho tropic side Dortions, will be 9, 650 feet.
