6 - Thurs, Mar. 12,19M 16 -.Wed ,HiKlin, W« Crossfire in Sacramenfg Legislotors owaif Brown's next move SACRAMENTO (UPI) — A* muDistratioii and RepublicsQ forces awaited the next move today in a legislatiTe crossfire involnng bond issues, education new taxes, the state budget and the anti-Rumford housing initi' ative. And-the move appeared to be Gov. Edmund G. Brown's. But just when he would make it was uncertain. Still to be introduced were Brown • sponsored bond issues for scho^ and state building construetioa totaling $610 mil lion. A spokesman said the bond issues had become "bogged down" in the legislative coun sel's otQce, but probably would be introduced today or Monday. One bond issue, scheduled to be introduced by Assemblyman Charles Garrifius, D • Keedley, would finance $2€0 million in state loans for local school buildiniis. Ihe other, for which an author had not been selected would provide $350 millioa for construction of higher education prison and mental hospital fa' cilities. The bonds became even more entangled with other issues Wednesday when Assembly Republicans announced they would insist all bonds be placed on the June primary ballot, instead of in November. "We can't afford to gamble with education funds," said As semblyman Don M u I f o r d, of j Oakland, the lower House Republican caucus chairman. "If the bonds should fail in June we could give them another chance in November." But if the bonds did go before the voters in June, then by law they also would be accompanied by the controversial housing initiative—which Brown and Assembly Speaker Jesse Unruh, S - Inglewood, want on the November ballot where it would have a better chance ofj being defeated because of a larger turnout Unruh and the Legislature's three Negro members Wednes day Issued a statement saying| they favored November because it would "permit the fullest possible pubhc debate." The initiative would give prop erty owners "absolute discretion" in selling, leasing and resting and would nullify the 1963 Rumford Act Mulford said the initiative did not enter into Republican discussions of the June versus No- veml)er ballot preference. But I'll tell you one tiling,' Mulford said, "there's not going to be a budget passed out of here until the bonds issue is set tied." That remarlr came about the same time Assembly Ways and Means Committee Chair' man Robert Crown, D-Alameda, reiterated he hoped to move Brown's $3.66 billion state bud' get to the lower chamber floorj next week. A possible way out of the crossfire was liinted Wednesday by Unruh and Sen. President Pro Tem Hugh Burns, D-Fres no. The two legislative leaders questioned the wisdom of pro posing state school bonds every two years and said higher taxes might be the answer. That way, new school bonds could be elim inated altogether. They specific ally mentioned current bills to increase cigarette taxes by five cents a package and hike the, sales tax by a penny. Aside from the school bond the Legislature had before it a proposed $100 million bond issue to provide low cost bousing for farm families. In addition, the legislature already has approved $150 million bond issue for parks acquisition and development Republicans said they al so wanted these on the June bal lot making a grand total of; $860 million in bonds. Elsewhere, there vrere these developments: Budget — The Assembly Ways and Means Committee cut $5.7 million, mostly in construction Goldwofer soys Lodge didn't woik PHOENIX Axis. (nPI><-5ea. Bany Go&hrater, B • Arii.. declared Wednesday id^ that thej victory of Henry Cabot Lodge in the New Hampshire Presiden tial primary doea not neces sarily mean he is a strong con tender for the GOP nomination. Goldwater, returning her bom Washington, D.C., said there is a great deal of resent ment against Lodge for not hav ing really worked hard for the party. "If Lodge and (Nelson) Rockefeller had work hard in the past the Republicans would be in the White House today," said Goldwater, who finished second to Lodge in the New Hampshire voting. He said he expects liis Call fomia campaign—which gets under way Friday —to be easier than the New Hampshire cam paign because he is more fam iliar with the West items, from Brown's proposed budget The committee also joined its counterpart in the Senate by asking for a break do\m In expenditures of the California Disaster Office. Oroville—A special Senate investigating committee said con struction procedures at Oroville Dam were accompanied by safe guards "more than adequate in every respect" And it said construction proce dure, wliich had led to extra costs, were permitted under original contract specifications. Petitions — Le^slalors re ceived 1.5 million petitions ask ing for more state aid and a broader lax base for public schools.

Dr. Andrew W. Lawson, chairman of the Department ofj Physics, values the gift at $100,000. In order to protect persons using the equipment and others in the area from radiation, the apparatus, when installed, will be surrounded by large rectangular steel tanks filled with water. It will be operated by remote control with special electronic devices. The tanks and control equipment as well as the power supply, are parts of the gift Dr. Lawson says that the ae celerator has been used by the ICaliforoia Research Corporation at its La Habra laboratory to determine the geological characteristics of samples secured in exploratory drilling for oil. It produces highly energetic pro tons. By using a tritium target the proton beam can be converted into a neutron beam. Both types of beam are useful in studying nuclear interactions. The apparahjs will be used, according to Dr. Lawson, primarily for the instruction of ad- Church, are participating. speakers.

The significant research in nuclear iphysics today, he says, is being done with the large, very high energy accelerators supported [by Federal agencies, such as that at the Lawrence RadiaUon Laboratory at Berkeley. These enormously expensive installa tions are operated by the same techniques, however, as the smaller pieces of equipment Hence many physics departments throughout the country have installed van der Graaf accelerators to train students in modem nuclear research techniques.
