A-lt THE NEWS, Frtdtrkk. Murk*! " nMw.Mwo.nn Primary Elections Tuesday In 8 States By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Voters go to the polls in eight states next Tuesday in the biggest primary day of the 1970 election season, with five U.S. Senate seats and the same number of governor's mansions at stake. All U.S. House seats are also up this year although many of the incumbents in the eight states face no opposition. And there will be legislative and local elections in some. Rogers, Franco Hold Talks On Military Bases MADRID CAP) - U.S. Secretary of State William P. Rogers met for 45 minutes today with Gen. Francisco Franco and gave him a letter from President Nixon expressing hope for a conclusion soon of negotiations on U.S. military bases in ' --J K Rogers was accompanied by his counterpart, Foreign Minister Gregorio Lopez Bravo. The Spanish minister opened negotiations on the bases last March. U.S. officials did not report what Rogers and the 77-year-old Svanish leader discussed. Rogers, on a one-day visit, also had a mid-day appointment with Aim. Luis Carrero Blanco, the vice president and confidante of Franco who is in charge of much of the daily operation of the government. Carrero Blanco, strongly pro^American, is said to be the chief driving force for renewing the bases agreement. There has been opposition against renewing the 17-year-old agreement from some segments of the Spanish press, leftist and Communist groups and members of the Spanish opposition. A key contention by these groups is that Spain should not sign a new agreement without a stronger declaration by the United States that it would come to the aid of Spain in case of attack. The present agreement was a vague declaration but it is not binding. Diplomatic sources say the United States wants to avoid such a commitment. The bases agreement expires Sept 26 and involves three air bases and the biggest U.S. Navy base in Europe at Rota on Cadiz Bay. If no agreement is reached, the U.S. military has a year to dismantle and leave. Here at a glance are the highlights of the major races: -Alabama: George Wallace and Gov. Albert Brewer stage a runoff for governor since Brewer edged Wallace in the May 5 primary but failed to get a majority. - California: Jess Unruh, Democratic leader of the state assembly, and Mayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles are battling for the parly's nomination for governor. Gov. Ronald Reagan is unopposed for renomination. Sen. George Murphy is expected to defeat multimillionaire industrialist Norton Simon for the GOP senatorial nomination. Reps. John V. Tunney and George Brown are staging a close battle for the Democratic nomination for senator. - New Jersey: Sen. Harrison A. Williams Jr. faces opposition from state Sen. Frank J. Guarini Jr., who is supported by the powerful Hudson County organization, but Williams is expected to win renomination. Former state Republican chairman Nelson Gross is expected to win the GOP Senate nomination. -- New Mexico: Sen. Joseph M, Montoya is favored to win Democratic renomination over Richard Edwards, a former state representative. To set the stage for an expected big battle in the November election, Gov. David F. Cargo is the leader in a three-man field for the GOP nomination. A battle royal is being waged to succeed Cargo as governor, with six Republicans and three Democrats in the field. -- South Dakota: Gov. Frank Farrar is expected to be renonv inated on the Republican ticket. The only Democrat running for governor is state Senate majority leader Richard Kneip. -- Montana: Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield faces two political unknowns for re- nomination. Only one Republican is seeking Mansfield's seat Harold E. "Bud" Wallace, a Mssoula sporting guns salesman and former University of Montana swim coach. - Iowa: Incumbent GOP Gov. Robert D. Day faces no primary opposition. Three are in the Democratic race- former Lt. Gov. Robert Fulton, state Rep. William Gannon and Robert L. Nereim, a Des Moines printer. - Mississippi: A light voter turnout is expected here where Sen. John C. Stennis is up for re-election with no primary opposition and no Republican challenger.

My broad experience in state and local affairs has given my many ideas for reform and improvement. I am especially interested in tax reform.* "We must make every state and local tax deductible if at all possible so that we may save on what we have to pay to the Federal Government. Maryland is unfairly treated by the revise our State taxes in order to 'strike back* and pay Washington as little as possible. Our exemption for the blind should be broadened to include the chronically ill and bed-fast patient, many of whom can stay in their own homes instead of crowding public faculties if they are given moderate tax relief. "If elected, I will beexpecially interested in knowing the problems of individuals because many of my past successes have been due to helping solve personal problems with solutions which will help many people.'"
