Purity Of Elections Passes Hurdle SACRAMENTO (UPI) — A purity of election bill backed by Gov. Edmund G. Brown was safely past its first legislative hurdle today despite opposition from Republicans. The measure, AB320 by Assemblyman Gordon H. Win ton Jr. (D-Merced), cleared the Assembly Elections committee Wednesday on a vote of 9-1. All of the "aye" voters were Democrats except Republican Frank Luckel. The lone "no' came from Republican Charles J. Conrad while two other Republicans on the committee refused to vote. Conrad and other Republicans objected that the administration bill did not cover labor union activities in election campaigns. Author Speaks For Bill Both Winton and Leonard Friendman. assistant attorney general who appeared on behalf of the governor and Attorney General Stanley Mosk, insisted labor unions as well as such political campaign contributors as United Republican Finance would be covered equally. "The present law covering the reporting of election contributions is a mockery." Winton said. "It means nothing. This bill is not a perfect one. perhaps, but it will let the public know where campaign money comes from and where it goes." The bill provides that candidates for public office must account for all money received in campaigns in excess of $50 from any one source. Other Provisions Explained No committee or individual could work or spend money in an election year without specific consent of the candidate or without a full public disclosure of the amount spent. After endorsing the Winton bill, the committee came up two votes short of approving another approach to the difficult problem of financing election campaigns. A bill by Assemblyman S. C. Masterson (D-Richmondt would have prohibited any campaign contribution in excess of $500 by private individuals or organizations and put the state and the general taxpayer in the business of financing election costs. Other developments: Smog: A Senate-approved measure to get the Department of Public Health to determine maximum safe levels of air pollution was approved by an Assembly committee. Only two more hurdles remain before the bill becomes law. FEPC: The governor's bill to create a fair employment practices commission was taken off the Senate file and sent to the upper house Finance Committee for a review of its possible cost to the state. The action will delay a floor vote for at least a week. Pensions: The Assembly Social Welfare Committee, over objections from county governments.! approved a bill to increase the basic state old age pension max imum from $90 to $100 a month Spending: Assemblyman Jesse M. Unruh iD-Los Angeles». chairman of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee, warned his fellow legislators that if all the spe cial appropriation bills were passed, they would add 327 mil lion dollars to the state's two-billion-dollar budget and put the state in even a more difficult fi nancial position.

State PY 2-3939 Arabs, Soviets Exchange Bitter Words CAIRO <UPI) — The United Arab Republic and the Soviet Union again exchanged bitter words today in their quarrel over the growth of Communist influence in the- Middle East. But again, the Moscow comment was milder. The semi-official Middle East news agency (Mena) charged that Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev has abandoned his support of neutralist Arabs because he now be lieves the West's power there i; finished and he does not need their help against it. Khrushchev has changed from support of positive neutrality to Arab Communism Mena charged. "The Arabs now must liquidate Western imperialism and stand firmly in the face of Communist Imperialism" the' agency added. (In London, Tass, the official Soviet news agency, carried a Cairo dispatch in today's Izvestia that accused the U.A.R. of helping the western "imperialists" by feuding with Iraq.)
