REPi.T.- MA.-L 18 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., Ang. 15,1970 Warmly, very warmly New Orleans greets Nixon Associated Press NEW ORLEANS - Construction workers wearing hard hats and carloads of young people warmly greeted President Nixon during his New Orleans visit yesterday. Nixon hopped from his limousine, before it left the airport, to squeeze children's hands and to get a handshake from construction workers. Large crowds formed along the 15-mile route from the airport to the French Quarter hotel where the President met with representatives of seven southern states to discuss school desegregation this fall. A couple of Confederate flags flew along the route of the motorcade. Along Interstate 10, outgoing lanes were jammed. People stopped their cars to get a look at the President. The crowd sweltered in the 87-degree temperature on Canal Street, for more than a century the jugular vein of the New Orleans Mardi Gras. The President sat atop his limousine, his gray suit soaked with perspiration. He rolled up the sleeves of his coat and shirt to shake hands. The cuff of his right sleeve fluttered just below the elbow. American flags waved by the hundreds as the crowds jammed against the car and diminished broad Canal Street to a needle's eye for the caravan. People hung over second story balconies when the President's entourage turned onto a narrow street in the French Quarter. But dissidents were out, too. Signs reading "Nixon Go Home" and "No Deal, U.S.A. Get Out Now—SDS" were «» **idence. But there were others that read "Execute All Protestors" and two groups got in a shouting match at one point. New Orleans jazz bands, led by trumpeter Al Hirt and clarinetist Pete Fountain, serenaded President Nixon with a rendition of "When The Saints Go Marching In." Mrs. Nixon looked very cool in a green dress despite the searing sun and walked behind the President as he shook hands and signed autographs when he arrived at the Royal Orleans Hotel. The President walked over to shake hands with Hirt and said, "Mr. Hirt has been to the White House." Then he motioned to Fountain and said "We hope you will come, too." Nixon jumped up on the trunk of his car to address the group clogging streets around the hotel. He reminded them that it was the 25th anniversary of V-J Day, the day the Japanese surrendered to end World War II. He declared his aim now was to "bring peace—a peace that will last." about Nixon firm on school policy Continued from Page 1 ceived a warm and enthusiastic reception here. Appearing tanned and relaxed, Nixon mixed easily with an enthusiastic airport crowd of 200. Arriving downtown for his meetings, the President climbed atop his limousine and addressed the massed crowd with microphone in hand. He reiterated his hope for obtaining global peace, for ending sectionalism in the United States and for bringing the government closer to the people. "We tend to think too much section- ally," he said, without directly mentioning the desegregation issue. The President got in a small bit of politicking with a warm endorsement of the all-Democrat Louisiana congressional delegation. "When it comes to the great issue of building a strong United States and those policies that will build a just peace, they do not think of themselves as Democrats but as Americans first," Nixon said. The President had an extra word for Sen. Allen J. Ellender, D-u. He proclaimed the powerful legislator "Chef Supreme" during a flying ceremony on the trip south. On July 15 at the capital, Ellender hosted the' President at a luncheon at which the senator served gumbo dishes, his cooking specialty. Members of the newly-formed Louisiana delegation to the desegregation advisory council said they were impressed by the President's firm tone on enforcement. Formation of the local committees was encouraged by the President's cabinet committee on desegregation. They are designed to step in before serious local reaction to integration develops. A primary purpose of the President's trip was to give the local committees greater visibility and prestige, White House aides said. • The President encountered a few "Wallace for President" signs, Confederate flags and anti-war demonstrators during the motorcade. But there were many more "Nixon for President" placards and other signs of support. More about Attorneys lacking experience Continued from Page 1 "We lose cases because the man is not experienced and is going up against an experienced attorney," he said. He added immaturity on the part of his deputies also causes bad decisions on dismissals, charge reductions and case filings. The Republic's study of Berger's criminal prosecution staff showed that besides the 18 with a year or less prosecution experience, 8 have between one and two years, 1 has three years and 1 has six years' experience. Fourteen of the 28 prosecutors came to the county attorney's office directly out of law school. Of the 28, 12 have one year or less total experience as lawyers, 11 have between one and three years and Shave three or more years experience as lawyers. Nearly all of the 18 with the lease experience are handling trials in Superior Court, but some are assigned to preliminary hearings in justice of the peace court or juvenile court work.

No V.S. decision on Mideast allegations Associated Pren WASHINGTON - A State Department spokesman said yesterday that "it is most emphatically not true" that the United States has decided DO violation of the Mideast cease-fire has occurred. "Wft have not reached a if an,!(:;;,:' occurred after the cease- fire," the spokesman, press officer Robert J. McCloskey, added, McCioskey was responding to questions about Israel's charge that Egypt violated the standstill by moving missiles closer to the Sue* Canal, that U.S. intelligence had found the Egyptians guiltless of the alleged violation. The press officer gave no deadline as to when the United States would make its finding on the Israeli accusation., which was received Nader accuses state of property tax 'sham' George Nader, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor, yesterday termed "a clear cut example of political hypocrisy" a 55 cent reduction in the state property tax announced last week. Nader, speaking to a Democratic luncheon club at the Phoenix YMCA, said the citizenry knows the state administration is playing politics with the state's most urgent needs. "The administration's failure to act on growing pollution, crime and juvenile problems will cost Arizona taxpayers more than $100 million over the next five years because of present neglect and the extra effort in money and time that will have tobeex- LEPROSY IN INDONEISA JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — About 350 cases of leprosy have been reported in an area of West Java during the past few months, health officials announced. RfiraeMc .Mto by Riy Molen John Frausto works high above the street cleaning traffic signals New bulbs help too Clean green's more readily seen John Frausto, 27, of 1232 E. Fillmore, traffic signal cleaner for the city's electrical maintenance division, visits every one of the city's signalized intersections twice a year. His job is to replace bulbs in the traffic signals and to clean the r e f.l e c t o r s and lenses so that motorists can see the signals more easily. "The biggest problems are the heat and the traffic," Frausto said. "It gets pretty bad when you're put there in the middle of an intersection and all that traffic and pavement," he said. "But I just keep on going and try not to mind the heat or even pay any attention to it. I just drink a lot of water." The time it takes to service the signal lights at an intersection varies, Frausto said, depending on the amount of traffic he has to fight. On some signals, which are on high mast arms, he has to edge his truck into the middle .of the intersection and motorists are sometimes angered when he has to block a lane of traffic. On a busy day, it might take an hour for him to clean the signals at a busy corner such as Central and Indian School, he said. He might be able to finish the job at a less heavily traveled intersection in 20 minutes. Housewives, who might wonder whether the city uses some miraculous washday discovery to get lens glass sparkling clean, may be disappointed to learn that Frausto uses plain glass cleaner, with liberal amounts of water. "We dry them with paper towels," he added in an attempt to offer a helpful hint. "You know," he mused: "I used to think they didn't have to clean those signals. I mean I never thought about it. Now I've got this job and I know." Tea, anyone? GAINSBOROUGH, England (UPI) — Housewife Nancy Brumby spent about $125 on 800 packages of tea in the hope of winning a car in a contest. Mrs. Brumby was notified she was a winner — of a $20 transistor radio. 3000 YDS.—100% NYLON CARPET $1.98 PER YD. INSTALLATION & PAD AVAILABLE SOUTHWEST CARPET 5731 W.

The juvenile problem in Arizona is aggravated by the lack of implementation of procedures recommended in legislation when the Department of Corrections was created, he said. "The simple fact that Arizona does not have a correctional institution for girls is concrete evidence of the neglect caused by an administration whose primary motive is the vote that can be acquired through the bait of reduced taxes," Nader said.
